“WHAT THE SHADOW’S KNOW” ABOUT COVID SHUTDOWNS!

 BY JOHN HINDERAKER IN CORONAVIRUSLIBERALSSHUTDOWN SHOWDOWN

WHO LIKES THE SHUTDOWNS?

COVID shutdowns have exposed one of America’s most basic class divides–that between those who can work from home, and those who can’t. For many, the shutdowns have been a disaster; for others, a convenience.

I’m going to repost a chart on a survey that was part of Steve’s most recent The Geek In Pictures. Who thought 2020 was a terrific year? Urbanites with graduate degrees and high incomes:

This comment is, I think, spot on:https://platform.twitter.com/embed/index.html?creatorScreenName=powerlineUS&dnt=false&embedId=twitter-widget-0&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1352652653843476481&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.powerlineblog.com%2Farchives%2F2021%2F01%2Fwho-likes-the-shutdowns.php&siteScreenName=powerlineUS&theme=light&widgetsVersion=ed20a2b%3A1601588405575&width=550px

But, PRESIDENT TRUMP DID WIN THE ELECTION…..THE ONE THE DEM FASCISTS RIGGED WITH MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF PHONY BAGS, AND VOTE DELIVERIES!

What if the Capitol Rioters Had Been Democrats and Ashli Babbitt a Black Woman?

Isn’t it remarkable how well order can be maintained when a clear desire to have it so is manifested?

President Biden’s inauguration went off without even a hint of the violence seen a week earlier, when zealous but misguided Trump supporters broke into the Capitol in what has been widely but erroneously, often hysterically, described as an “insurrection.” But even if one accepts the term’s current usage, how refreshing it is to see an instance of violent opposition to law and order receive such universal disapproval. How welcome it is to hear the half-wits on cable television and even Nancy Pelosi express their appreciation for the police. Yes, after a season of rioting in cities across the land following the death of George Floyd, all of which was excused, ignored, or euphemized as “mostly peaceful protests” by our sophisticated betters in government, the media, and academia, the Left has finally found a riot it can condemn, with all its MAGA hats and American flags and, of course worst of all, white people.

It is at this point that the prudent conservative writer, aware of the ongoing effort to cancel people of his benighted sort, is compelled to offer a statement of principles. Here are mine, as they pertain to the current political climate. I believe: 

  • People should obey the law.
  • Those who don’t should be justly punished as the law prescribes.
  • Both of the above should be applied equally regardless of one’s ethnicity or where one falls on the political spectrum.

Simple, right? It wasn’t so long ago that nearly everyone could agree on these rules, but recent events and the demands of electoral politics have inspired a previously unimaginable elasticity of principle in some quarters, most conspicuously among those same sophisticated betters in government, the media, and academia, who were aghast at the sight of federal officers defending against the nightly siege of the federal courthouse in Portland, but who welcomed, temporarily, 25,000 troops brought in to protect Biden’s inauguration.

Yes, the double standards have been on vivid display since Jan. 6. As further proof of this, consider a counterfactual: Donald Trump has won the election by a slim margin, and some of Joe Biden’s supporters have raised questions about the legitimacy of the vote-counting in certain states. Their objections are rebuffed in the courts, and when Congress meets to certify the electoral votes, a crowd of protesters gathers outside the Capitol, encouraged by Democratic politicians and talking heads on cable news. Some smaller number of those protesters breach the security perimeter and force their way into the Capitol, sending the occupants scurrying for safety. In the chaos that follows, a black woman protester is shot and killed by a police officer as she climbs through an interior window near the House chamber.

Can there be any doubt that such an event would have triggered the destruction of the Capitol and much of Washington, D.C., and that the rioting would have spread to every major American city and lasted for days? Can there be any doubt that the dead woman’s name would be continuously on the lips of every talking head on every news program, and that her face would adorn murals from coast to coast? Can there be any doubt that the video of the fatal encounter would be broadcast endlessly, that the involved officer would be made infamous across all media, and that and there would be calls for him and even Trump himself to be prosecuted for murder?

As it happened, Ashli Babbitt, who was shot and killed by a Capitol police officer without any apparent legal justification, has been largely forgotten in the wake of this so-called insurrection. Her death is a mere parenthetical to the story. Why?

Also largely forgotten is Brian Sicknick, the Capitol police officer who died after leaving the melee at the Capitol and returning to his office. The cause of Sicknick’s death and the circumstances of any altercation he may have been involved in have not been made public, though the FBI is reported to be investigating his death as a homicide.

We are told, again by these same sophisticated betters, that the insurrection was incited by Donald Trump, who propagated the “lie” that the election had been stolen from him and who encouraged his supporters to continue to protest on his behalf. But was Trump really “lying,” or was he merely espousing an honestly held belief, albeit one unsupported by available evidence? 

One need not be a conspiracy theorist to find certain anomalies of the recent election curious. But even if one accepts the notion that questioning the vote tallies makes one a “liar,” where was the similar opprobrium for the rioters who took to the streets in Michael Brown’s name in 2014? Remember “Hands up, don’t shoot”? That was a lie, but it was nonetheless peddled relentlessly in the media until a Saint Louis County grand jury and the Obama Justice Department conclusively refuted it. 

We will of course continue to see violent encounters between police and lawbreakers, some of which will turn deadly and inspire the next round of rioting in American cities. Or rioting may result when, as I expect, Derek Chauvin is acquitted in the death of George Floyd. His trial is set to begin March 8, and I anticipate a six- to seven-week trial, including jury selection, so mark your calendars and make your plans accordingly. You may want to avoid Minneapolis and certain parts of other cities around the end of April.

We are warned of the lurking menace of right-wing political violence, but the reality is that the sunshine and lollipops now showering down around President Biden will far more likely give way to the sort of lawlessness to which we have become wearily accustomed. When this happens, whether in Minneapolis or elsewhere, our sophisticated betters won’t have Trump to blame for it. How maddening they will find this, and how quickly they will revert to excusing, ignoring, and euphemizing all of it.

Poor Biden…Too Used to His Dummyness. He Doesn’t Know Any Better! He’s Charming.

Biden Family Violates Mask Mandate for Lincoln Memorial Photo Op

By Liz Sheld at American Greatness:

On the night of Inauguration Day, hours after President Joe Biden signed the mask mandate order, he, along with first lady Jill Biden, and members of their family visited the Lincoln Memorial where they took a photo as a group with masks, and one without, Breitbart reports.

Inside the Lincoln Memorial, the 46th President of the United States and the first lady posed for a maskless photo alongside some of their family members, Ashley Biden, her husband Howard Krein, and Biden’s grandchildren Naomi, 27, Finnegan, 20, Maisy, 19, and Natalie, 16, and Robert ‘Hunter’ Biden II, 14. Hunter Biden was not included.https://platform.twitter.com/embed/index.html?dnt=true&embedId=twitter-widget-0&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1352409069538201600&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Famgreatness.com%2F2021%2F01%2F22%2Fbiden-family-violates-mask-mandate-for-lincoln-memorial-photo-op%2F&theme=light&widgetsVersion=ed20a2b%3A1601588405575&width=500px

The photos have been shared to social media countless times, just hours after Biden signed dozens of executive orders, one being a mask mandate. The mask mandate is for anyone traveling interstate or anyone on federal grounds to stop the spread of the coronavirus

“Wearing masks isn’t a partisan issue — it’s a patriotic act that can save countless lives,” Biden wrote in a tweet on Inauguration Day. “That’s why I signed an executive order today issuing a mask mandate on federal property. It’s time to mask up, America.”https://platform.twitter.com/embed/index.html?dnt=true&embedId=twitter-widget-1&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1352086011875090439&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Famgreatness.com%2F2021%2F01%2F22%2Fbiden-family-violates-mask-mandate-for-lincoln-memorial-photo-op%2F&theme=light&widgetsVersion=ed20a2b%3A1601588405575&width=500px

The Biden’s maskless posing met with quick backlash Wednesday night. Despite the mandate, President Biden also appeared on Thursday during his first full day in office at the White House without a mask.

“Asked about breaking his own mask mandate by Fox News’s Peter Doocy, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki defended Biden’s time with his family during a “historic moment in our history” and said, “We have bigger issues to worry about.” Psaki was not, however, questioned about the rest of the Biden family violating the mask mandate,” Breitbart reports.

“He was surrounded by his family, we take a number of precautions, but I think we have bigger issues to worry about at this moment in time,” Psaki said.TwitterFacebookParlerShare onTwitterFacebookParler

Why Do Fascist ‘Educators’ of American Schools Avoid America’s Devotion to God, Honesty, and Freedom?

Posted on January 24, 2021 by Glenn H. Ray | Edit

Transmitting the Truth About America’s Founding

by Roger Kimball at American Greatness:

Anyone not blinded by prejudice can see that freedom is under assault in America. To rekindle the distinctively American variety of freedom it is first essential to understand it.By Roger Kimball

Among the 17 executive orders emitted by the Biden Administration on January 20, perhaps the most disturbing was the abolition of the 1776 Commission, the body President Trump formed last year to “enable a rising generation to understand the history and principles of the founding of the United States in 1776 and to strive to form a more perfect Union.” 

Other of Biden’s executive orders will have a more immediate practical effect. His scuttling of the Keystone Pipeline, for example, will throw thousands of Canadians and Americans out of work. Furthermore, by signaling the new administration’s hostility to fossil fuels, it will also abet the process of undermining America’s energy independence, one of President Trump’s greatest accomplishments and a dynamic motor of America’s prosperity. There is cheering tonight in Tehran, oil-rich Arab states, and Moscow because of those insidious initiatives. And it goes without saying that there is wild celebration in Beijing as they digest the implications of the fact that the man whose family they so conspicuously enriched over the years made it to the White House. 

Another of the Biden Administration’s early woke initiatives is obeisance to the tiny but turbulent “transgender” lobby. Accordingly, another executive order requires that high-school and college sports teams allow men who say they are women to compete on women’s sports teams, the effect of which will be to obliterate women’s sports. Henceforth, too, all government forms will ask what people’s “preferred pronouns” are. One wit suggested that Biden should say his preferred pronoun was “Xi,” after his big benefactor in China. 

The negative consequences of Biden’s more pragmatic executive orders are incalculable. Nevertheless, the symbolic importance of dissolving the 1776 Commission may, in the end, be the single most destructive act promulgated by the new administration in its opening effort to repeal the achievements of the last four years. 

In dissolving the commission, the Biden Administration clearly signaled that it was siding with the New York Times’ “1619 Project,” a malignant, anti-American fantasy whose guiding axioms are that America was founded as a “slavocracy” and that the American Revolution was fought primarily to perpetuate the institution of slavery. 

Those disgusting calumnies have been endlessly repeated by academics and the fake-news media, not to mention by the critical race theory industry, which has branched out from its original home in the university into corporate culture and even into the federal government, where its minions run seminars broadcasting the evils of “whiteness,” capitalism, and bourgeois values. 

It was partly to counter such professional racialists that President Trump convened the 1776 Commission. Chaired by Larry Arnn, the Churchill scholar and president of Hillsdale College, the commission’s board included such renowned figures as Victor Davis Hanson, the historian and classicist, Charles Kesler, editor of The Claremont Review of Books, and Mike Gonzalezthe author and Heritage Foundation scholar. Even as the Commission was dissolved, its report, overseen in large part by the constitutional scholar Matthew Spalding, the commission’s executive director, was taken down from the White House website in a further effort to erase the commission’s work from public memory. Fortunately, the report is accessible at other websites, including this one

The left-wing press indulged in one of its ritual two-minute hate orgies before trying to bury the report in the oubliette of historical erasure. 

The Washington Post screamed that the report was “A hack job” full of “outright lies” and that it “outrages historians.” Among the outraged “historians” they cite is the poseur Ibram X. Kendi, presumably an expert on lying hack jobs since his book How to Be an Antiracist is a specimen example of the genre. The New York Times followed suit with a piece charging that the “‘1776 report’ defends America’s founding on the basis of slavery,” while CNN dropped any semblance of dispassionateness with a story headlined, “Trump administration issues racist school curriculum report on MLK day.”

“Racist school curriculum report.” Really? In fact, the report admirably fulfills its high ambition to provide an “accurate, honest, unifying, inspiring, and ennobling” exposition of America’s founding principles, the challenges those principles have faced over the course of our history—the most categorical challenge having been slavery—and the resources America must marshall if it is to reclaim the unity and purpose that divisive race mongers have destroyed. 

Critics of the 1776 Commission’s report deplored the fact that it was released on January 18, the holiday celebrating the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. The great irony is that while the report champions King’s vision of a world in which people are judged by the “content of their character” not the color of their skin, the entire woke establishment being enabled by the Biden Administration repudiates King’s idea. Far from judging people on “the content of their character,” they promulgate the vile idea that group identity—based on race, sexuality, ethnic origin—should form the basis for social privilege. about:blank

Anyone not blinded by parti pris can see that freedom is under concerted assault in America. To rekindle the distinctively American variety of freedom—which emphasizes individual liberty and limited government—it is first essential to understand it. The authors of the commission’s report quote the founder James Wilson: “Law and liberty cannot rationally become the object of our love,” he observed, “unless they first become the objects of our knowledge.” Hence the critical importance of understanding American history. 

Since the 1960s, our students increasingly have been battened on a diet of anti-American distortions. The 1776 Commission aimed to counter that by cultivating the teaching of “enlightened patriotism.” That ambition was enough to earn them the obloquy of an educational—and now, a corporate and political—establishment that is dedicated to highlighting only America’s failures and imperfections, not its extraordinary achievements, achievements that pushed forward the borders of liberty as well as bequeathing its citizens and the world unprecedented material wealth. 

The rationale for the 1776 Commission was summed up brilliantly by Ronald Reagan in an observation that is quoted in the report. “Freedom,” Reagan said, “is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” 

The sad truth is that America is on the threshold of the dire eventuality that Reagan warned about. The report of the 1776 Commission is an eloquent and compelling contribution to the task of transmission Reagan hailed. 

The report is no longer available from our new masters in Washington. But I am proud to say that in a matter of weeks Encounter Books will be publishing the report, in paperback and as an ebook, replete with a new preface and annotations. Details about the publication will be posted on Encounter’s website sometime next week. Strike a blow for freedom by ordering a copy. TwitterFacebookParlerShare onTwitterFacebookParler

Undoing Trump will take more than executive orders

Undoing Trump will take more than executive orders

© UPI Photo

Joe Biden has a plethora of pens as he signs multiple executive orders in the opening days of his presidency, orders that likely will be a mainstay of his administration in the months ahead. He should order those pens in bulk.

Biden is rejoining the Paris Climate Accord and the World Health Organization, getting more assistance to struggling families, terminating the ban on allowing Muslims from certain countries into the U.S., mandating a $15 minimum wage for federal workers and the wearing of masks on federal property during the pandemic, protecting some imperiled immigrants, freezing any spending on a wall along the Mexican border and initiating more COVID-19 protections.

Most of these are undoing executive actions taken by President Trump.

Biden also wants to cashier most all Trump appointees; in the final months, Trump duplicitously moved some political operatives into civil service protected jobs. The most notorious is Michael Ellis, an aide to the discredited former House Intelligence chair Devin Nunes, who was installed as the top lawyer at the super-sensitive National Security Agency over the objections of the agency’s director. There are others. It may be possible to fire some by executive action; most of the others might be transferred to a less sensitive post. Leon Panetta, the Democrats’ most prominent national security expert, suggests finding a place for Ellis in Alaska.

Over the longer run, however, the new administration — especially when agencies rewrite or draft new rules — may run into a judicial brick wall. Trump did with some of his early executive orders, which were carelessly crafted, failed to go through proper procedures, and often overreached.

The Biden problems likely will be more ideological.

Republicans successfully manipulated politics to forge a solidly pro-Republican High Court. Biden’s nomination of Merrick Garland as Attorney General is a painful reminder that he was denied a seat on the High Court in 2016 when Senate Republicans for nine months denied a vote. Subsequently, Trump filled that slot and one other — and then the Senate pushed through the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett in mere weeks.

The Republican majority justices on the Supreme Court usually embrace business interests on regulatory matters.

Some last-minute Trump actions may be hard to unwind, like letting out of contracts for oil and gas drilling or undoing the appointment of political hacks to various boards, most having little to do with policy.

The Biden transition team has had top lawyers working around the clock to draw up a list of executive actions and regulatory issues. They are carefully evaluating legal risk assessments given the conservative coloration of the judiciary. With the Trump team’s general refusal to engage in the customary cooperation during the transition, the problems may be deeper than expected.

The most important and controversial areas will be the environment, workers’ rights, financial regulation and immigration. These all are divisive issues with Republicans, and many affect powerful and deep-pocketed interests.

Even though candidate Biden talked often about taking executive actions and his chief of staff distributed a memo last weekend on the plans, the president spent 36 years in the Senate, and his instinct is legislative.

If legislative measures fail or are considered too tepid by the Democratic left, pressure will mount on the president to take more sweeping executive branch actions.

All matters, however, will come up against a solidly right-wing High Court. During the Obama years, Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas were disdainful of the president and most of his policies; they unsuccessfully sought to throw out the Affordable Health Care Act. Chief Justice John Roberts strikes a more measured approach — he was the key vote for the ACA —though he usually is a reliably pro-business vote.

The three Trump-appointed justices generally are in the Alito-Thomas mold. Neil Gorsuch has been a sharp critic of the so-called “Chevron deference,” which gives regulatory flexibility to interpret and enforce laws in this complex economy and not require narrow adherence to strict statutory language.

The newest Justice, Amy Barrett, hasn’t compiled much of a record on regulatory issues during a short stint on an appeals court — but her role model is the late Justice Antonin Scalia, for whom she clerked years ago, which would suggest she’ll usually side with business interests.

When Trump nominated Brett Kavanaugh to the High court, the White House put out a memo noting the scores of times Kavanaugh, as an appeals court judge, voted against regulations dealing with clean air and water and consumer protections. Before becoming judge, he was very active in “movement conservative” Republican circles.

This administration also will be tested on efforts to expand voting rights and curb voting suppression; these have become partisan issues, as Democrats try to expand the franchise.

Biden should expect everything to be challenged in court — which means everything this administration attempts will go before judges appointed by Trump and run through the Senate by a happily compliant Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).

FASCISM USA….COMING OUR DAY WITH THE DAMNED DEM WAY!

What IS FASCISM….? DEM DEMOCRATS ARE AMONG THE FASCISTICS, OWN AMERICAN EDUCATION!!

Americans since the late 1960s when Democrats began to slip into their Fascistic Dem way, have become more and more ignorant of things important to human life in the world and even in our USA. I used to be a Democrat back then. I was a Minneapolis neighbor of Democrat Senator Fritz Mondale then and worked quite feverishly for his Senatorship. I was proud to do so. He was an honest, dedicated regular national American even when he opposed President Ronald Reagan in 1984 for the US Presidency.

He faded into fascist political nature when he ran for a U.S. Senate seat many years later. He NEVER became a Dem, however. But, he was almost borderline fascistic then.

Today’s PRESIDENTIAL, SENATORIAL AND REPRESENTATIVE Dem Democrats are spectacularly FASCISTIC TODAY….THEY SPECTACULARLY LIE, CHEAT, PLOT EVIL, STEAL TO GAIN POWER. They own today’s good Democrats, because they’re scared, but still honest and American…..

Where would they get their honesty confidence back….from fascist American schools, colleges, and universities from coast to coast? From NewPrint New York Times, Washington Post, even the Wall Street Journal?

Most Americans aged 18 to 50 are too ignorant-UNEDUCATED to know what Truth in Government AND LIFE MEAN really mean anymore today. They are poor in wealth and learning. Their teachers were, are, Dems. They’ve listened, watched, exercised to nothing but fascistic CNN, MSNBC, PBS, CBS, ABC, NBC, BLOOMBERG programmed news, and limited to have to respond and endure today’s top business fascists, the BIG TECH ZUCKERBERGS ET ALIA greed and horror via THE FACEBOOK, GOOGLE, AMAZON WORLDS AND SOVIET-FASCIST TRILLIONAIRE, GEORGE SOROS WHO BUYS DEMS AND REPUBLICANS TO DO HIS FASCISM.

THAT’S WHY THEY ARE CALLED DEMS, BECAUSE THE ARE DAMNED FASCTICS LIKE DEMS! (I used to teach high school Senior Social Studies back then. I also taught Russian, because I was fluent in the language then. Better yet, I VISITED FASCISM TWICE…..IN 1966 when the Union of Soviet SOCIALIST Republics was a Dem Nation….and again in 1990 when that USSR was slipping only into Demhood, still generally liars and cheats.

What is fascism by definition? FASCISM: DICTATORIAL MOVEMENT….Any movement, tendency, or ideology that favors dictatorial government, centralized control of private enterprise, and repression, and/or repression of all opposition!!!

Hello, Greedy, Arrogant Mark Zuckerberg, George Soros, and such Dems……Hello, Greedy, Arrogant Fascistic Dems, PELOSI, SCHUMER, SCHIFF, SWALWELL, FEINSTEIN, HIRONO, NADLER, DURBIN, SOCIALIST DEM SANDERS, OCASIO-CORTEZ, RACIST DEM MAXINE WATERS and on and on and on.

Innocents on Their Way to Zuckerberg Fascism, USA?

Dem’s Crook, Star American Gangster Joe Biden Creates Slush Funds for His Fascist Gangster Buddies.

One of Biden’s first priorities was to re-establish corrupt slush funds for political supporters

By Jack Hellner at American Thinkers:

President Trump got rid of the Obama/Biden slush funds where the Justice Department, CFPB, and EPA shook down corporations and then used the negotiated settlements that they were forced to pay (taxpayer money) to funnel kickbacks to their political supporters.

But one of Biden’s first priorities was to re-establish these corrupt slush funds.  Why didn’t the media highlight this magnificent,  corrupt, first day action?  The answer is clearly that the complicit media will gladly hide anything from the public that might shed a bad light on their chosen one.

It is the same reason they always buried the stories of pure corruption by the Biden and Clinton families.  The politicians that most of the media are campaigning for and contributing to are special.  They can take as many kickbacks and violate as many laws as they like and lie with impunity, and the loving media will support them.  The truth hasn’t mattered for a long time to people who pretend to be fact-based journalists.

Joe Biden’s DOJ To Resume Extorting Money From Corporations To Benefit Leftist Groupshttps://lockerdome.com/lad/9371484590420070?pubid=ld-8832-1542&pubo=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.americanthinker.com&rid=www.americanthinker.com&width=500

In the first set of Executive Orders signed today by Joe Biden was the reversal of a DOJ policy put in place by Attorney General Jeff Sessions which prohibited provisions in settlement agreements in civil litigation that directed the opposing party to pay the money from the settlement to some third-party interest group that DOJ believed could put the money to better use than having it go into the Treasury of the United States. 

Why wasn’t there front-page and wall-to-wall coverage of the violent riots in Portland, Seattle, and other places on Election Day by radical leftists?  The answer is that violence by leftists never matters when the media are pushing an agenda.  When an MSNBC reporter stands in front of a burning building and describes it as mostly peaceful, we know that facts mean nothing to propagandists.

We all know that if any group remotely associated with Trump committed a sliver of the violence that the media and other Democrats predicted and hyped for Election Day, the coverage would be massive and the calls for impeachment would compound.  Should V.P. Kamala Harris be impeached since she promoted and supported the violence and bailing out the criminals?  Biden sat silently by with all the violence last summer until the polls said he should say something.

Why didn’t journalists ask Biden for scientific evidence showing that there is a correlation among oil, temperatures, sea levels, and storm activities when he revoked the permit for the Keystone pipeline?  The answer is that science and facts have never mattered when Democrats are pushing an agenda to remake and destroy America.  They, along with the loving journalists, gladly spread misinformation to the children and others without any evidence.  And they call anyone who disagrees and tells the truth that the climate has always changed cyclically and naturally a liar, a denier, anti-science, and stupid.  They are canceled and silenced to hide the truth.  Debate is not allowed.

Why didn’t we constantly hear the term “systemic racism” while Obama and Biden were in office, since we are told that we have been racist for 400 years?  The answer is that the media and other Democrats know that the statement isn’t true.

Why didn’t Biden take care of the systemic racism problem in his first fifty years in D.C. if the problem is so bad?  Why would anyone believe it will be different now?

For the last four years, we have been treated to a hate fest by the media and other Democrats where they demonized Trump and his supporters with lies and every vicious name in the book.  They called Trump an illegitimate president, said he stole the election, conducted witch hunts about Russian collusion, and continually spread lies about what Trump said in Charlottesville to gin up hate and violence.  They sought to destroy white Christian boys and Judge Kavanaugh with known lies.

And they blame Trump and his supporters for dividing the country while they falsely claim they are uniters who are the empathetic party.

For the Obama/Biden eight years and for the next four years of Biden/Harris, we will be treated to a love fest.  The truth, science, the law and corruption will not matter.

How’s Fascist-Socialist-Dem’s Bernie Sander’s Vermont Doing These Days?

How racist is Vemont, really?

By John Klar at American Thinker:

For years, liberal Vermont  media and politicians have condemned the state’s police and legal system as “systemically racist” using flawed statistical analysis of incarceration rates of blacks.  Increasingly, this appears deliberate.

A University of Vermont “study” was the fulcrum to slander Vermont, “suggesting” that racist animus explained disparities in police stops, arrests, and incarcerations of black and Hispanic drivers.  The study’s author, Stephanie Seguino, measured police bias by comparing traffic stops of black and Hispanic drivers to the Vermont general population, without regard to driver residence.  Seguino’s supposedly revelatory “research” has likely undermined police efforts arresting inner-city gangs transporting narcotics to Vermont — using an out-of-state numerator over an in-state denominator.

The left asserts that Vermont has a higher incarceration rate of blacks than its underlying population (true) and thus is “systemically racist” (patently false, even absurd).  When Vermont police arrest black or hispanic out-of-state fentanyl dealers, of course the incarceration rate of blacks will increase relative to black Vermonters — that is drug interdiction, not racism.

Seguino’s study ignores origin, focusing on “stop rates by race compared to racial shares of the population.”  This shoddy research was leveraged by an uncritical Vermont media to slander good police officers.

Note from glenn: I have been enslaved by America and its history and politics ever since high school when teachings came from very well educated, JudeoChristian Godfearing old maid school teachers who loved their country….1948-52. It was in earlier 1942-1944 when I became hooked on Americana, its history and politics, its war and its White House. I began following political elections that fall, 1944….President Roosevelt versus New York, Thomas E. Dewey. I didn’t like the Dewey mustache….it looked like Hitler’s…and Mr. Roosevelt kind of looked my Mom’s Dad, my Grandpa Danner whose German parents came to America from Alsace Lorraine when the French kicked them out after the first world war.

I remember then, that the American state of Vermont had NEVER FAILED to vote Republican throughout its history…..the only American state to be able to claim that…(I studied history in those days and loved it. Our fascist Dem Democrats today don’t allow teaching American History any more. It’s against their Love of Socialist-Communist Fascism of their today. Bernie Sanders made it so….Bernie Sander, the forever fascistic, Communist-Socialist loving Democrat-Communist….who loved the USSR so much, he either married his wife in Kiev, USSR, or went their on elope, or both…I cannot remember which.

Vermont never went Presidential Democrat until about 1960…..and since then turned socialist-fascist ever since. New York City billionaires had finally bought the state out so their Dem-fascists in the future can enjoy their vacations. Yet, in 2016 our wonderful Donald J. guy squeezed for the presidency.

This fascistic Dem, Socialist-Communist Bernie has been U.S. Senator from Vermont about ever since….

Dem fascists recovered its Vermont territory last year, voting for crooked Dem, Biden. (I DO NOT YET KNOW WHETHER THE VERMONT VICTORY WAS STOLEN. DO YOU?)

Why Do Fascist ‘Educators’ of American Schools Avoid America’s Devotion to God, Honesty, and Freedom?

Transmitting the Truth About America’s Founding

by Roger Kimball at American Greatness:

Anyone not blinded by prejudice can see that freedom is under assault in America. To rekindle the distinctively American variety of freedom it is first essential to understand it.By Roger Kimball

Among the 17 executive orders emitted by the Biden Administration on January 20, perhaps the most disturbing was the abolition of the 1776 Commission, the body President Trump formed last year to “enable a rising generation to understand the history and principles of the founding of the United States in 1776 and to strive to form a more perfect Union.” 

Other of Biden’s executive orders will have a more immediate practical effect. His scuttling of the Keystone Pipeline, for example, will throw thousands of Canadians and Americans out of work. Furthermore, by signaling the new administration’s hostility to fossil fuels, it will also abet the process of undermining America’s energy independence, one of President Trump’s greatest accomplishments and a dynamic motor of America’s prosperity. There is cheering tonight in Tehran, oil-rich Arab states, and Moscow because of those insidious initiatives. And it goes without saying that there is wild celebration in Beijing as they digest the implications of the fact that the man whose family they so conspicuously enriched over the years made it to the White House. 

Another of the Biden Administration’s early woke initiatives is obeisance to the tiny but turbulent “transgender” lobby. Accordingly, another executive order requires that high-school and college sports teams allow men who say they are women to compete on women’s sports teams, the effect of which will be to obliterate women’s sports. Henceforth, too, all government forms will ask what people’s “preferred pronouns” are. One wit suggested that Biden should say his preferred pronoun was “Xi,” after his big benefactor in China. 

The negative consequences of Biden’s more pragmatic executive orders are incalculable. Nevertheless, the symbolic importance of dissolving the 1776 Commission may, in the end, be the single most destructive act promulgated by the new administration in its opening effort to repeal the achievements of the last four years. 

In dissolving the commission, the Biden Administration clearly signaled that it was siding with the New York Times’ “1619 Project,” a malignant, anti-American fantasy whose guiding axioms are that America was founded as a “slavocracy” and that the American Revolution was fought primarily to perpetuate the institution of slavery. 

Those disgusting calumnies have been endlessly repeated by academics and the fake-news media, not to mention by the critical race theory industry, which has branched out from its original home in the university into corporate culture and even into the federal government, where its minions run seminars broadcasting the evils of “whiteness,” capitalism, and bourgeois values. 

It was partly to counter such professional racialists that President Trump convened the 1776 Commission. Chaired by Larry Arnn, the Churchill scholar and president of Hillsdale College, the commission’s board included such renowned figures as Victor Davis Hanson, the historian and classicist, Charles Kesler, editor of The Claremont Review of Books, and Mike Gonzalezthe author and Heritage Foundation scholar. Even as the Commission was dissolved, its report, overseen in large part by the constitutional scholar Matthew Spalding, the commission’s executive director, was taken down from the White House website in a further effort to erase the commission’s work from public memory. Fortunately, the report is accessible at other websites, including this one

The left-wing press indulged in one of its ritual two-minute hate orgies before trying to bury the report in the oubliette of historical erasure. 

The Washington Post screamed that the report was “A hack job” full of “outright lies” and that it “outrages historians.” Among the outraged “historians” they cite is the poseur Ibram X. Kendi, presumably an expert on lying hack jobs since his book How to Be an Antiracist is a specimen example of the genre. The New York Times followed suit with a piece charging that the “‘1776 report’ defends America’s founding on the basis of slavery,” while CNN dropped any semblance of dispassionateness with a story headlined, “Trump administration issues racist school curriculum report on MLK day.”

“Racist school curriculum report.” Really? In fact, the report admirably fulfills its high ambition to provide an “accurate, honest, unifying, inspiring, and ennobling” exposition of America’s founding principles, the challenges those principles have faced over the course of our history—the most categorical challenge having been slavery—and the resources America must marshall if it is to reclaim the unity and purpose that divisive race mongers have destroyed. 

Critics of the 1776 Commission’s report deplored the fact that it was released on January 18, the holiday celebrating the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. The great irony is that while the report champions King’s vision of a world in which people are judged by the “content of their character” not the color of their skin, the entire woke establishment being enabled by the Biden Administration repudiates King’s idea. Far from judging people on “the content of their character,” they promulgate the vile idea that group identity—based on race, sexuality, ethnic origin—should form the basis for social privilege. about:blank

Anyone not blinded by parti pris can see that freedom is under concerted assault in America. To rekindle the distinctively American variety of freedom—which emphasizes individual liberty and limited government—it is first essential to understand it. The authors of the commission’s report quote the founder James Wilson: “Law and liberty cannot rationally become the object of our love,” he observed, “unless they first become the objects of our knowledge.” Hence the critical importance of understanding American history. 

Since the 1960s, our students increasingly have been battened on a diet of anti-American distortions. The 1776 Commission aimed to counter that by cultivating the teaching of “enlightened patriotism.” That ambition was enough to earn them the obloquy of an educational—and now, a corporate and political—establishment that is dedicated to highlighting only America’s failures and imperfections, not its extraordinary achievements, achievements that pushed forward the borders of liberty as well as bequeathing its citizens and the world unprecedented material wealth. 

The rationale for the 1776 Commission was summed up brilliantly by Ronald Reagan in an observation that is quoted in the report. “Freedom,” Reagan said, “is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” 

The sad truth is that America is on the threshold of the dire eventuality that Reagan warned about. The report of the 1776 Commission is an eloquent and compelling contribution to the task of transmission Reagan hailed. 

The report is no longer available from our new masters in Washington. But I am proud to say that in a matter of weeks Encounter Books will be publishing the report, in paperback and as an ebook, replete with a new preface and annotations. Details about the publication will be posted on Encounter’s website sometime next week. Strike a blow for freedom by ordering a copy. TwitterFacebookParlerShare onTwitterFacebookParler
