The Source of BLM’s Super-power

The Source of BLM’s Super-power

Americans are not afraid of the cowardly mob of domestic terrorists known as Black Lives Matter. Thank God we hung tough in not allowing Democrats and fake news media to repeal our Second Amendment right to bear arms. Everyday Americans are scratching their heads, terrified, and livid over BLM’s extraordinary political power.

Who has gifted this anti-American racial hate group the power to destroy monuments with impunity — the power to intimidate politicians to swiftly remove monuments BLM deem offensive — the power to silence any opposition by getting people fired – the power to demand that airports, colleges and etc. be renamed – the power to demand that politicians grovel while kneeling in worship to BLM? The short answer to the source of BLM’s super-power is fake news media.

Fake news medias’ bogus reporting has corporations and politicians believing a majority of Americans are filled with white guilt and therefore support BLM and their absurd demands. Consequently, whatever BLM wants, BLM gets. Supportive and fearful corporations have given BLM $400 million to bludgeon mainstream America into surrendering to BLM’s mission to transform America into a socialist/communist nation.

Everywhere I turn, I hear extremely angry and frustrated Americans screaming for someone to begin telling BLM, “Hell No!”

I salute Mayor Ben Rozier of Bloomingdale, Georgia for kicking off the pushback by refusing the city council and BLM’s demand that he resign for his truthful post on Facebook. Mayor Rozier’s post is titled “Privilege.”

“What is privilege? … Privilege is wearing $200 sneakers when you’ve never had a job. Privilege is wearing $300 Beats headphones while living on public assistance. Privilege is having a Smartphone with a Data plan which you receive no bill for.

“Privilege is living in public subsidized housing where you don’t have a water bill, where rising property taxes and rents and energy costs have absolutely no effect on the amount of food you can put on your table.

“Privilege is the ability to go march against, and protest against anything that triggers you, without worry about calling out of work and the consequences that accompany such behavior.

“Privilege is having as many children as you want, regardless of your employment status, and be able to send them off to daycare or school you don’t pay for.

“Privilege is sending your kids to school early for the before school programs and breakfast, and then keeping them there for the after school program… all at no cost to you… paid for by the people who DO HAVE TO DEAL WITH RISING TAXES AND COSTS! …you know, us so called ‘PRIVILEGED’ the ones who pay while you TAKE TAKE TAKE!”

BLM protesters’ and the Bloomingdale city council’s heads exploded over Mayor Rozier daring to state the truth. Anarchists deem speaking the truth unacceptable.

I have witnessed at first hand….

…the truthfulness of Mayor Rozier’s post. In 1993, I resigned from my position as art department supervisor at WJZ-TV in Baltimore to pursue a career as a singer/songwriter. Shockingly, the IRS immediately hit me with a huge self-employment tax.

My cousin Tom was a lifelong drug addict and serial impregnator, causing numerous out-of-wedlock births. Tom invited me to see his new free government-funded townhouse. He also received free drugs for his addiction, along with healthcare and food stamps. I thought, “The government is actually funding this guy’s irresponsible lifestyle choices.” Tom was a black man living a privileged life. Meanwhile, the government was financially penalizing me for branching out on my own.

BLM protesters are all over media absurdly claiming that all whites enjoy unfair white privilege and attacking them for it.

I thought about a wonderful kindly elderly white gentleman whom I will call “Pop.” With all the wicked BLM craziness going on, I will not mention his name. I learned that Pop is a beloved legend in the tiny town Mary and I moved to a few years ago.

Several months ago, when I first met ever-smiling Pop, we were outside a local store. He said, “At nine years old, I milked nine cows every morning before school and nine cows after school. My pay was $5 a week.” I thought, “I guess this guy never got the memo about his white privilege.”

Recently, I bumped into Pop at the post office. He grabbed my hand giving me a hearty handshake, “How you doin’, young man?” Pop walks in tiny baby steps. He said, “I cut four lawns this morning.” I asked, “How in the world did you find energy to do that? Pop chuckled, “I’m only 89 years old.” This is a man who has worked hard his entire life and simply does not know any other way to live.

BLM claiming that Pop owes them and must kneel to them because of his white privilege is absurd. But most of all, BLM’s demands are evil. Everyday Americans must say, “No!” putting an end to BLM’s takeover of America immediately.

Trump Can No Longer Wait to Act and Speak Decisively in Defense of The Goodness of America

By Jared Peterson

Among leading American political commentators, Victor Davis Hanson, from the beginning, has been President Trump’s most steadfast, consistent, articulate and clear-eyed supporter.  He has unswervingly praised not only the President’s amazing list of accomplishments, but the character and emotional resilience of the man that enabled him to achieve what he has, despite an unceasing barrage of meretricious denunciation and potentially mortal attacks that would have defeated and broken lesser persons.  There is absolutely no doubt about Hanson’s intense desire to see the President succeed — based on a profound knowledge of history he knows the stakes.

But in a recent column VDH has had to call out the President’s seeming reluctance to trumpet a stentorian defense of either the good name, history and heroes of the nation, or to do anything in defense of civilized life, both of which for weeks have been under ceaseless and largely unanswered and unresisted revolutionary assault.

VDH is right, and the point he makes, echoed here, is born of a passionate desire to see the President reelected.

President Trump can no longer wait, trim or equivocate.  He needs to passionately and unapologetically denounce and reject the ongoing revolutionary condemnation of America, its history, principles and heroes, and all the accompanying violence, in powerful argument and stirring rhetoric.  And he needs to take forceful action against it.  Now.

The electorate needs to know, now and unequivocally, that President Trump believes deeply in the goodness of the nation he leads, and that he rejects completely the race-guilt Nazi smear of the Democrat party, that America’s whites are racist and evil, not because of their conduct, but because of the accident of their skin color.

The President faces a growing risk of losing in November if he waits.  He cannot stand idly by as summer passes into fall and the unanswered libels and unresisted destruction mount, hoping that suddenly, in November, a terrorized majority will turn to the man who neither countered the lies and eloquently defended the nation’s goodness, nor took any effective steps to halt the plunge into chaos and lawlessness.

Trump is dropping in the polls not because the public has any sympathy either with what’s happening on the streets or with the calumnies — the great majority are terrified by the first and appalled by the second — but because the one man who should be speaking and acting against both, and defending America’s people, nation and founders against the slanders, appears missing in action.

Apparently, the President is listening to those who counsel appeasement of the mob, who whisper that America’s patriots have nowhere else to go.  Have not enough failed Republican presidential candidates (G.  H.  W.  Bush, McCain, Romney) made this fatal assumption to their and our sorrow? Jared Kushner and his philosophical ilk should be banished from Trump’s presence, save family gatherings, until after the election.

No part of the mob or those who sympathize with it will ever vote for Trump.  The part of the black vote the President has a chance of getting is that segment that already realizes how desperately every black community needs the active presence of the police.

Trump’s voters (and a very large number of those who did not vote for him) are shocked, confused and frightened at the precipitous descent of the country into unanswered self-condemnation, violence and threatened revolution.  No one is forcefully responding to the transparent calumnies of America’s latter-day Bolsheviks, let alone acting to protect ordinary citizens from their enormities.

And among this confused and frightened majority, who hear no clear champion, there is a creeping sense that the cause may be lost, that America today has no defenders, so why bother voting for Trump.

The idiocy of the left’s libels is so apparent that the speeches very nearly write themselves:

No nation in human history, enshrining freedom and the rule of law, has elevated so overwhelming a portion of its people, of all races, out of material misery and into an abundant life….

…no racial majority has done more over generations to raise up a disadvantaged racial minority — from the all-white US Supreme Court’s unanimous decision banning segregated schools — to the overwhelmingly white US Congress’s Civil Rights Act of 1964 and voting Rights Act of 1965, to the same white elite’s embrace of affirmative action in hiring and college admissions, to preferential advancement in police and fire departments, to subsidized housing and direct welfare payments. 

And the nation is willing to continue such of these efforts, and more, that hold out promise of progress.  

But it will not be blackmailed by threats of violence and mayhem, and it will never confess to the lie that its nation is evil or its white citizens and police are racist because of the actions of those who have been dead for more than a hundred years.

And as to the mobs that rage in cities across America, the President has no easier rhetorical target:

To those that say progress will come through violence, looting, burning police stations and intimidating citizens in their homes, he can say, with complete moral assurance, that nothing is happening in America today, no condition exists, that remotely justifies the resort to such barbaric behavior; and he can further suggest that the perpetrators, enablers, and cheerleaders of such conduct look to the bloodstained revolutions of Europe over the last 200 years, and ask themselves if those methods are preferable to moving forward through reasoned debate, in the sacred constitutional Institutions bequeathed us by our great founders — debate that has indisputably produced such enormous progress during the last half century for America’s blacks and numerous other segments of our population who shared less than fully in America’s promise.

But the President will be making a grave error if he waits till the fall to mount a full-throated defense of the nation and of the nation’s whites’ good name, and condemnation of mob violence and defense of the rule of law.  If he chooses, Romney-like, to wait, apathy and defeatism will have accumulated among his voters and those who might have been his voters.  Drifting without leadership or a champion, undefended for months, many of them may be contemplating the peace that can be purchased with surrender.

All of the President’s voters, and a great many others stunned by recent occurrences, are waiting for words and deeds that unambiguously defend obvious truths.  Only Trump can deliver them.

If the President needs another wordsmith, he could do much worse than providing Victor Davis Hanson with a West Wing office and a keyboard.

“Murder by lockdown: details from a dozen countries.” – THE *MURDERS OF GRANDMA AND GRANDPA*, AND WHY?

WHY, JON RAPPOPORT,

WHY?

I (JAF, editor) SUBMIT: it’s because Older People tend to vote conservatively, and they vote more than the younger demographic.

…only 46% of people18-34 years old voted in the last election. So the elderly have a disproportionate influence on our politics and our country. And a lot of them would like to keep it that way.

.   __________________________   .

Older voters tend to be more conservative than the population, meaning that the conservative agenda is disproportionately weighted on the national political stage. Whether this is good or bad depends on your political attitude, but it seems to be anti-democratic in practice, if not in intent.

.   __________________________   .

Also because Old People are obviously (self-evidently)  a drain on socialized medicine, such as that existing worldwide, in the UK, Canada, France, etc., and In the USA.

ARTICLE: Murder by lockdown: details from a dozen countries

Make that 13, plus one city, New York

by Jon Rappoport

July 1, 2020

(To join our email list, click here.)

 

The reference here is a stunning May 23 article by John Pospichal, “Questions for lockdown apologists,” posted at medium.com.

(This is part-4 in the series, “Killing Old People”. For part-3, click here.)

Pospichal examined overall mortality numbers for Austria, Belgium, Denmark, England and Wales, France, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Ecuador, and New York City.

Supported by charts, here are excerpts from his article:

“We now have mortality data for the first few months of 2020 for many countries, and, as you might expect, there were steep increases associated with the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in each one.”

“Surprisingly, however, these increases did not begin before the lockdowns were imposed, but after. Moreover, in almost every case, they began immediately after. Often, mortality numbers were on a downward trend before suddenly reversing course after lockdowns were decreed.”

“This is an astonishing finding…”

“You will notice that only after each country (or city) was locked down did the increases begin. Moreover, they began immediately, and in nearly every case, precipitously.”

“All this leads us to the following questions, which we pose to all those who continue to defend the use of lockdowns as an effective means to prevent excess deaths.”

“Q: Why was there no significant increase in overall mortality, in any country we have good data for, before the start of lockdowns?”

“Q: Why does a precise and exact correlation exist between the start of lockdowns and significant rises in overall mortality?”

“Q: How is it that governments in every country imposed lockdowns at precisely the same time relative to the future precipitous rise in their populations’ overall mortality rate?”

“Q: How is it, moreover, that this moment in time [i.e., the imposition of lockdowns] happened to fall immediately before that precipitous rise?”

“Q: If health authorities vastly underestimated the prevalence of the virus at the beginning of the pandemic, why did the virus nevertheless wait until lockdowns were imposed to suddenly start killing at levels which exceeded normal deaths?”

—To that last question, I would respond: No virus would wait. We’re not talking about a virus at all. We’re talking about the sudden effects of the lockdowns.

And those sudden death-effects would come crashing down, first, and immediately, on the most vulnerable people in these countries:

The elderly, who were already ill for years.

THE LOCKDOWNS FORCED THE PREMATURE DEATHS OF OLD PEOPLE.

PEOPLE WHO HAD BEEN SUFFERING FROM MULTIPLE HEALTH CONDITIONS FOR YEARS, WHO HAD BEEN TREATED WITH TOXIC MEDICAL DRUGS, WHOSE IMMUNE SYSTEMS WERE ALREADY SEVERELY COMPROMISED…

AND WHO ARE SUDDENLY TERRIFIED BY TWO MORE FACTORS—THE POSSIBILITY OF A COVID-19 DIAGNOSIS, AND ISOLATION FROM FRIENDS AND FAMILY. THESE TWO FACTORS PUSH THEM OVER THE EDGE AND THEY DIE.

Especially in nursing homes; but also in hospitals, and in their homes.

This is the true face of “COVID.”

This is how the case numbers and the death numbers are being propped up all over the world, to yield the impression of a virus on the loose.

Without those huge numbers, the whole vicious charade of a pandemic would be exposed and rejected at once.

The lockdowns are a method of killing.

The governors and mayors and presidents and prime ministers who imposed the lockdowns—and behind them, the planners of “COVID”— have been killing old people.

Media Omits Threats, Crashed Gate at Mansion of Armed Democrat Couple Wielding Guns At BLM Protest

ARMED Couple Wielding Guns Outside Their Mansion During BLM Protest Are Lawyers Representing A Victim Of Police Brutality

The irony is the couple are hardcore Democrats – party of gun control. Even so, they had every right to protect and defend their home.But the Democrat AG in that state doesn’t agree.

St. Louis lawyers who waved guns at protesters under investigation

Epoch Times reports:

A couple in St. Louis stepped outside their mansion on Sunday and wielded firearms after a group of activists broke through a gate to enter the private neighborhood. Video footage shows the group, protesting against the city’s mayor, entering an area clearly marked “Private Street.”

As the group moved by their home, the couple, identified as Mark and Patricia McCloskey, appeared on their back porch and told the activists to move on.

Shortly thereafter, the couple moved onto an area near their front door and continued urging the group not to stop. Activists can be heard shouting “eat the rich” and “why are you threatening us?” Some threatened to enter the home.

After shouting at the couple for at least 10 minutes, the group continued on to Krewson’s house. Video footage did not show any of the activists attempting to move toward the couple’s home.

A St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department spokeswoman told The Epoch Times that police officers responded to a 911 call at the location around 7:20 p.m.

“The victims stated they were on their property when they heard a loud commotion coming from the street. When the victims went to investigate the commotion, they observed a large group of subjects forcefully break an iron gate marked with ‘No Trespassing’ and ‘Private Street’ signs,” a police incident summary said.

“Once through the gate, the victims advised the group that they were on a private street and trespassing and told them to leave. The group began yelling obscenities and threats of harm to both victims. When the victims observed multiple subjects who were armed, they then armed themselves and contacted police. The investigation is ongoing.”

An investigation into what happened is ongoing.

In a statement sent to news outlets, the McCloskeys said they “acted lawfully” by remaining on their property, which sits on what they described as a private gated lane in St. Louis.

“Their actions were borne solely of fear and apprehension, the genesis of which was not race related. In fact, the agitators responsible for the trepidation were white,” the statement said.

Armed St. Louis protesters broke iron gate, threatened couple before they drew their own guns, attorney says

‘We were told that we would be killed, our home burned and our dog killed,’ homeowner said

By Stephanie Pagones | Fox News June 29, 2020:

St. Louis couple seen pointing guns at protesters marching toward mayor’s home

A Missouri couple under fire for brandishing guns in the front yard of their home as protesters passed told police the group broke a gate to get onto the private street, and the pair say they only retrieved their firearms when they spotted “multiple” people who were already armed, department records show.

Al Watkins, an attorney for Mark McCloskey, 63, and his 61-year-old wife, Patricia, said the protest was largely peaceful and the pair did not bring their guns outside of the home until two men in particular, both of whom were white, started menacing them.

The McCloskeys, he said, were hesitant to come forward with the full story out of fear that they would “disparage the importance of Black Lives Matter.”

“At the time, their fear was, these people, two in particular, that were marching along with the Black Lives Matter protest participants – all peaceful. They were acting in a fashion inconsistent with the message being given,” Watkins said. “My clients were not arming themselves against peaceful protesters, they were arming themselves about people with a really bad motive, a motive that runs afoul of the fundamental tenets of our country.”

After the couple brought the guns outside, Watkins said, others began threatening them, unaware of the reason behind the couple’s interpreted need to arm themselves.

“My clients, though, had to deal with comments that were from two individuals that were perpetrating these acts of violence and, not charging, but coming toward them and doing so in a fashion that was threatening, menacing, and in a fashion inconsistent with the Black Lives Matter message.”

The pair called the St. Louis Police Department shortly before 7:30 p.m. Sunday. They told arriving officers that they had heard a “commotion” and, upon investigating further, “observed a large group of subjects forcefully break an iron gate marked with ‘No Trespassing’ and ‘Private Street’ signs,” according to an incident summary provided to Fox News by the department.

However, a video showed the protesters walking through the gate and it was unclear when it was damaged.

Conserves….

We are law abiding.

We don’t march, protest, burn down our neighborhood stores, loot, steal, jump on people who disagree with us and beat the crap out of them, or any of that Liberal, Loving, Communist, Equality Bullshit.

We are Conservatives.

We grew up with the daily threat of Rooskies (Russians) tossing a hundred or so atomic and hydrogen bombs our way. We lived with thermonuclear death, 24 hours, every day. We became inured.

Ergo, these little commies in the streets, and these so-called, ANTIFEW, marching, rioting, and torching—they are NOTHING.

They are nothing,  compared to our lives—lived between 1945 and the fall of the old Soviet Union (that would be the Russians) in 1991.

However, the fight to-the-death, for World Domination, only shifted to new grounds. Mikhail Gorbachev, the old Soviet Leader, merely moved into the Global Warming arena, and continued his battle for World Domination, via his “new” organization: http://www.gorbyfond.org/index-en.htm

 

Mikhail Gorbachev
Mikhail Gorbachev

REPORT:

“Back in 1996, the former Soviet Union President Mikhail Gorbachev expressed the real truth behind the Global Warming agenda. He said that using climate alarmism could advance the socialist Marxist objectives to restore the power of government.

“He said:

“The threat of environmental crisis will be the international disaster key to unlock the New World Order.”

Essentially, this was revealing what I have encountered many times. You create an emergency and then convince the people they MUST surrender more freedom to be safe.

What Gorbachev was sayings was, in reality, a path to restoring the U.S.S.R.’s economic and political power.” https://www.armstrongeconomics.com/world-news/climate/global-warming-agenda-to-create-authoritarian-government/

 

So, you see, kids, the battle of Communism to control the planet (Earth) never stopped. It merely changed costumes. It went on to foster rampant Leftist “Causes,” und groupen.

Ipolimeni.com
Ipolimeni.com

The only people “protesting” in that oldtimey era of Soviet (Russian) nuclear threats, were the “peaceniks,” or liberals of the epoch.

They were just as crazed, fearless, and dedicated as Liberals seem today.

But they disguised it better. They MASKED it. They covered it up more, so they would seem more “acceptable.”

Acceptable to you and me. To the average person.

Now, however, the more crazed and rampant a communist seems to be—the better their resume seems to the world mass-media.

To the mass-media, who seem to be Self-Anointed Beloved High Priests of today. Also, to movie stars, teevee stars, entertainers, sportsmen, sportswomen, gays, lesbians, sportswymyn, criminals, convicts, complainers, racists, gripers, moaners, and to all the dumbass others.

How the hell did that happen so fast?

It doesn’t matter.

Nobody is slaughtered. Nobody slaughters the dumbass skanks.

“Protests,” rioting, murders, beatings, and burning Are allowed to continue.

Trump does nothing. He’s too terrified.

Nobody stops it.

At least, not to date.

However:

If you have terrified gun-owners, fearless rioters, and aggression, Then you can have a recipe for disaster. A possible path for murder. A maybe waypoint of death.

Filthy bastards in Australia make fun of this - https://www.news.com.au
“DEFENDING THEIR LIVES.” – Filthy dirty little commie bastards in Australia make fun of this – https://www.news.com.au

Terror….

A wrong move, a wrong word…a too-fast gesture.

And you then can have a possible, out-of-control, eruption—resulting in “Revolutionary” Warfare, and slaughter in the streets.

Death by killing old people, not [BY] COVID—the basic deception

Death by killing old people, not [BY] COVID—the basic deception

Jon Rappoport
Jon Rappoport

[BREAKING—UPDATE: The New York Times (June 27) is reporting that 43 percent of all US COVID deaths are occurring in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities for the elderly. In at least 24 states, more than 50 percent of all COVID deaths are occurring in these facilities. The Times fails to mention deaths of the elderly at hospitals or, at home, cut off from family and friends. The situation is far worse than the Times makes it out to be.]

Continuing my series of articles on the killing of the elderly—which IS what “COVID” IS.

(This is part-3 in the series, “Killing Old People”. For part-2, click here.)

The medical establishment is facing the embarrassing and devastating fact that a huge percentage of so-called COVID deaths are occurring in nursing homes. The elderly are dying prematurely.

And not only in nursing homes. In hospitals, and alone in their apartments.

All told, huge numbers of old people are dying premature deaths.

It’s obvious these patients have many serious and long-standing health conditions that have NOTHING to do with a virus. They’ve been treated for decades with toxic medical drugs. Their immune systems are severely compromised.

THEN they’re terrified when they’re handed a diagnosis of COVID-19 based on fraudulent tests, or no tests at all. They’re shut off completely from the outside world. No family or friends are permitted to see them. So the elderly die.

You want to see some astonishing numbers? Let’s go to the “epicenter.” New York City.

Using worldometers.info for data, I looked at the latest figures available.

As of May 13, take these two age groups—65 to 74, and 75 and older—and together they account for a staggering 73.6 percent of all COVID deaths in the city.

The 75 and older group accounts, all on its own, for 48.7 percent of all COVID deaths in the city.

For THIS, New York is on lockdown. Boarded up. Imprisoned. Economically torpedoed and devastated. With two ignoramus-vampires—Governor Cuomo and Mayor De Blasio—hovering over its shoulders.

If you subtracted the premature and forced deaths of the elderly, the fiction of New York as “the epicenter of COVID” would blow away in the wind in five minutes.

In case you missed it, in a piece I wrote a few days ago, I added yet one more factor to the murderous New York formula:

The Hill, undated (late April 2020), reporting on “data…gathered at Northwell Health, New York state’s largest hospital system. The study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) examines 5,700 patients hospitalized with coronavirus infections in the New York City region, with final outcomes recorded for 2,634 patients. The average patient age was 63 years old… For the next oldest age group, ages 66 years and older, patients receiving mechanical [breathing] ventilation recorded a 97.2 percent mortality rate.”

Just in case all the other obvious factors failed to produce premature death in the elderly, ventilators provided the method.

Don’t even think of saying, “Well, you see, those old people put on ventilators were already very sick and close to dying.” NO medical treatment that kills 97.2 percent of patients in a well-defined group is continued, unless there are orders mandating it. Unless there is added insurance money to be made from it. Unless the doctors are willing to keep using the treatment, despite the results.

New York—the “epicenter of the pandemic”—is an epicenter of killing old people.

Public health agencies think: “How can we falsely explain all these old people dying, in terms that will operate as a diversion and a cover story?”

And they come up with: “Well, of course these elderly people already had medical problems before the COVID virus came along, and yes, these problems contributed to their demise. But in the end, the cause of death was the VIRUS…”

A convenient and false statement.

So let’s look at this VIRUS. Again.

For the fourth or fifth time since I started writing about the “pandemic,” I’ll go back to the beginning. To the claim that a new virus was discovered in China. The one that is supposedly causing the global catastrophe.

Instead of blithely accepting the claim that the virus was “sequenced” and its genetic makeup was laid out, I offer the following—

Do the study you never did. Do something coherent. Since you announced a global pandemic affecting billions of lives, do a real study.

Gather together a thousand people you claim are suffering from the “epidemic disease,” and take tissue samples from them. In the real world. Now, under proper supervision, with independent observers recording on video every single step of the process, CORRECTLY put these samples through a purifying procedure that involves centrifuging them, and extracting the relevant material—and place small bits of this material under an electron microscope. Take photos (EMs) of what you see.

Now place these thousand photos side by side. In each photo, do you see many, many particles of what is unmistakably a virus? Is it a virus you’ve never seen before? From photo to photo, are the many particles of this new virus all the same?

When you’ve done that, let another set of technicians follow the same procedure, and see what they come up with.

If by THESE standards, you really think you’ve found a new virus, call me.

I’m not interested in what you’re “genetically sequencing” in the lab. It could be a partial virus of no concern, a decaying irrelevant virus, a piece of random genetic material, cellular debris, exosomes, a common-cold coronavirus, who knows what? And if a hundred labs start with the same who-knows-what sample, and all the labs come up with the same genetic sequence, this proves nothing.

There is no procedure that can climb inside a person’s body and record what is happening in real time at the level of a virus—but the closest you can come is the electron microscope procedure I’ve described above.

You didn’t do that procedure. Don’t come at me with a few random anecdotal cases from here and there, in which you did take electron microscope photos. Don’t tap dance.

The planet went on lockdown as a result of what you claim you discovered—so do the coherent study I outlined. Go the whole distance. That’s what science is supposed to do. And then other teams of researchers can weigh in with their own large electron microscope studies and confirm or deny your findings.

Meanwhile, do you know what you have? An unproven virus. A fake. A story about a virus.

Therefore, all your diagnostic tests “for the new virus” are a sham. They’re based on something you never demonstrated in the first place.

—Therefore, all those people, those elderly people dying for obvious reasons in nursing homes, and in their lonely apartments, and in hospitals all over the world? You obviously have no proof they’re dying from a virus. How could you? You never properly discovered a new virus. You have dust in your hands. Saying these elderly people died as a result of the COVID virus is meaningless.

Actually you have murder. You have blood on your hands. Your death-dealing COVID diagnosis of these old people is the final straw that drives them into terror and over the edge into death. You have that to answer for.

In this article I decided to lift the cover on the whole sordid mess—going to the root. It was necessary, because the medical “experts” keep falling back on THE VIRUS to explain away all objections. The truth is right in front of their eyes—it’s obvious why all these old people are dying, and why fake scientists and medical fraudsters must count their deaths as COVID cases.

Without those gigantic death numbers, the illusion of a pandemic would fall apart in an hour.

THE OLD PEOPLE ARE DYING FROM TERROR AND LONELINESS ON TOP OF ALL THEIR LONG-STANDING HEALTH CONDITIONS AND THE TOXIC TREATMENTS THEY RECEIVED FOR YEARS. Period. No virus needed.

They’re dying in nursing homes, in isolated apartments and houses all over the world, and in hospitals. And on their bodies is built this vicious war against the population of the planet.

Media Learned Nothing after their 2016 Polling Disaster. [They don’t HAVE to; because, they are loved, adored, and worshipped by skank-brained Americans. —jaf, ed]

.   ________________________   .

ARTICLE, BY DR. BRIAN C. JOONDEPH:

Harken back four years ago and recall how the media confidently predicted a Hillary Clinton landslide electoral victory over Donald Trump. They held firm to this prediction even when the election was all but over.

At 10:20 PM ET on November 8, 2016, election night, the New York Times confidently proclaimed, in the manner of Baghdad Bob, that Hillary Clinton had an 85 percent chance of winning the election. Long faces and tears graced cable news election night coverage shows by then and Hillary probably was on her second bottle of chardonnay, drowning her sorrows over a coronation that was not meant to be. Yet the “paper of record” continued to push the big lie.

Last week Politico reassured its Beltway audience that, “Biden extends lead over Trump amid protests.” Citing a Fox News Poll of 1343 registered voters, they giddily reported Biden with a 12-point lead.

They did not survey likely voters as more accurate pollsters such as Rasmussen Reports does, but those simply appearing on voter rolls, even if many of them don’t turn out to vote on election day.

Of those surveyed the self-described political affiliation was 47 percent Democrat and 41 percent Republican, a six-point swing favoring the DNC media’s preferred candidate. When respondents were asked who they would vote for, 50 percent said Biden while 38 percent said Trump. Take away the Democrat oversampling and it’s only a 6-point margin.

Panic time for Republicans. This must be it for Trump and his supporters. How can Trump overcome a double-digit deficit to the Democrat candidate? Just look at Trump’s Tulsa rally with empty seats despite over a million ticket requests.

First the virus, then protests and riots, now anarchy in Democrat run cities as the new normal for America, all destroying the Trump presidency. The latest chapter in the NeverTrump manifesto, starting with Russian collusion and Mueller, to Stormy and Avenatti, Omarosa and Scaramucci, Bolton and Mattis, each one supposedly the end of Trump.

Not widely discussed were the 7.7 million Tulsa rally viewers on Fox News, setting a Saturday ratings record, not to mention those watching on other internet video platforms. After the media spent the previous week predicting illness or death for anyone foolish enough to brave the Trump rally, and attendees were threatened by Black Lives Matter protesters, many chose to stay home avoiding getting beaten up or worse.

Joe Biden gave a speech in a gymnasium, drawing perhaps a few dozen. Compare the two photos. Does this foreshadow a Biden landslide?

You Tube screen grab and screen grab

Can President Trump overcome a 12-point deficit to Joe Biden? Aside from Biden’s failing cognition and mental acuity, as in “120 million Americans dead from the Chinese flu,” history may also provide an answer to that question.

Four years ago, June 15, 2016, CNN reported, “Hillary Clinton has a 12-point lead over Donald Trump nationally, a new Bloomberg Politics poll shows.” We know how that poll aged over the subsequent months. Is history repeating itself with another 12-point lead over Trump?

In unison was an ABC News/Washington Post poll two weeks later, also showing Clinton with a 12-point lead over Trump. This poll oversampled Democrats over Republicans by 36 to 24. What a coincidence, a 12-point difference in sampling and electoral preference. They got the poll result they wanted by fudging the sample.

Media delusion continued in mid-October 2016 when Newsweek confidently predicted, “Hillary Clinton on track for Electoral College landslide”, based on a Reuters/Ipsos poll. This poll was taken days after the Access Hollywood October surprise tape release which like everything else was designed to obliterate Trump’s campaign or presidency.

Is this déjà vu, the media believing the same polls as they did four years ago? Have they learned nothing? Especially knowing how Trump has foiled all other deep state and media attacks against him.

Rasmussen Reports publishes a daily presidential tracking poll of likely, not simply registered, voters. Trump and Obama are within a point or two of each other in total approval at the same points in their presidencies.

Remember that Obama was cruising to reelection with a gale force tailwind from the media and no resistance from tongue-tied Republicans while Trump faces a hurricane force media headwind and interestingly the same unhelpful Republican party, yet he is as popular at “The One” was at the same point in their respective terms.

Polling “wunderkind” Nate Silver agrees, saying that, “President Trump can absolutely win the 2020 presidential election despite his significant dip in the polls against former Vice President Joe Biden.”

It seems the media doesn’t understand polls, despite commissioning and paying big bucks for them. Polling registered rather than likely voters and oversampling Democrats skews the results. Are these polls designed to reflect public opinion or shape it? What is the purpose of these polls?

One aim might be the narrative that if Trump wins reelection, he stole it as he supposedly did in 2016. How else to explain him winning despite double digit polling predicting he would lose in a landslide? This reinforces the narrative that Trump is, as former President Jimmy Carter claimed, an illegitimate president.

This sets the stage for Mueller part two, the only unknown being who Trump will be accused of colluding with to steal the election. Schiff and Nadler already have generic articles of impeachment ready, assuming Democrats still control the House, a few fill-in-the blank lines of who Trump colluded with or what he obstructed.

Another goal of fake polls is to depress Trump supporters, convincing them that all is lost, and they needn’t vote as it won’t matter given the insurmountable Biden lead.

A national poll is also irrelevant as the Electoral College, 50 separate state elections, decides who wins the White House. Biden could win every vote in New York and California, winning the national popular vote by a huge margin, and receive the same number of electoral votes as if he won each of those states by only one vote. National polls predict the popular vote, not the Electoral College.

Philosopher George Santayana observed, “Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” It seems the media have short memories and are falling into the same trap as they did four years ago, preparing for a messy faceplant the day after Trump is reelected.

Time to Expose the Fraud That Launched BLM

Time to Expose the Fraud That Launched BLM

By Jack Cashill

Black Lives Matter’s website, the organization’s radical founders trace the creation of their movement “to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin’s murderer, George Zimmerman.”

Had those founders paid any attention to the trial, they would have known that Zimmerman should never have been charged with murder, let alone tried.  The fact that he was arrested can be attributed to a stunningly blatant fraud orchestrated by the attorney who has been prominently milking the racial divide he helped create, Benjamin Crump.

As it happens, the one person capable of exposing this fraud is George Zimmerman.  All Zimmerman needs is his own Atticus Finch, an attorney brave enough to resist the howling mob and stand up for the truth.

In the way of background, Zimmerman has filed a suit in the Circuit Court of Florida’s Tenth Judicial Circuit.  The evidence is overwhelming that Trayvon Martin’s support team, including Martin’s parents and their attorney, Benjamin Crump, knowingly substituted an imposter witness for the real “phone witness” in order to secure Zimmerman’s arrest for the 2012 shooting death of Martin.

Also named in the suit are the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE); the State of Florida; former state attorneys Bernie de la Rionda, John Guy, and Angela Corey, and HarperCollins, the publisher of Crump’s defamatory book, Open Season: Legalized Genocide of Colored People.

In a 2012 deposition, the perjured testimony of the imposter in question, Rachel Jeantel, enabled the State of Florida to arrest Zimmerman and take him to trial.  Evidence strongly suggests that state attorneys knew that the witness was a fraud.

Zimmerman was inspired to launch the suit based on the dogged research done by Los Angeles filmmaker Joel Gilbert for his documentary film and book of the same name, The Trayvon Hoax: Unmasking the Witness Fraud that Divided America.

Attorney Larry Klayman was brave enough to file the suit, but Zimmerman has parted ways with him and is now seeking a Florida attorney with a strong knowledge of state procedures to push the suit through to its conclusion.

The defendants effectively ruined Zimmerman’s life on April 2, 2012, five weeks after the shooting.  On that fateful day, de la Rionda flew to Miami from Jacksonville to depose Brittany “Diamond” Eugene, the girl who was on the phone with Trayvon up to the moment of his death.

Trayvon’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, had met with the real Diamond Eugene at least once before in mid-March.  Crump may have met with her as well.  He certainly coached her to follow his fraudulent script of a raging Zimmerman stalking and killing the scared little boy Trayvon Martin.  His phone interview with Diamond was recorded by ABC’s Matt Gutman and broadcast.

On April 2, when Fulton drove with de la Rionda to Diamond’s home, they were redirected to another address.  “I knocked on the door and asked for Diamond,” Fulton said in a 2013 deposition.  According to the lawsuit, “[r]ather than Defendant Eugene coming to the door, Defendant Jeantel appeared and claimed that she was ‘Diamond Eugene.'”

In The Trayvon Hoax, Gilbert did a brilliant job identifying and locating the real Diamond Eugene, a then-16-year-old Haitian-American hottie who stole Trayvon’s heart.

State attorneys had full access to the steamy text exchanges between Diamond and Trayvon, many of which had photos attached.  Reads the suit, “Defendant Eugene could in no way be mistaken for Defendant Jeantel, who was 2 years older, 5 inches taller, and about 120 pounds heavier than Defendant Eugene.”  While we are on the subject of height, little Trayvon was about half a foot taller than Zimmerman.

There is overwhelming evidence that Crump orchestrated the witness switch when the real Diamond refused to lie under oath.  Someone then recruited Diamond’s mentally challenged half-sister, Jeantel, to pretend to be Diamond.

Of all those being sued, it is only Sybrina Fulton who provably knew that Jeantel was an imposter.  Fulton is running for commissioner in Miami-Dade County with Hillary Clinton’s open support.

As Trayvon’s mother, Fulton has emerged as something of an icon in national Democratic politics.  The media have done everything possible to protect not just Fulton, despite her obvious involvement, but the entire phony narrative.  The response of the Miami Herald to this scandal has been nothing short of disgraceful.   

Zimmerman remains impressively upbeat.  Although “disheartened to see Crump using the same playbook to divide the country,” he has been encouraged by the response to the Trayvon Hoax film since Gilbert put it up for free on YouTube.

“My faith in humanity has been restored by reading the comments on Joel’s movie,” Zimmerman told me recently.  He particularly appreciates hearing from young people whose minds have been changed from watching the film.  Some sample responses:

I had thought Zimmerman was the man the media made him out to be. Thank god, you made an excellent documentary with much class & dignity. Thank you for showing up & balancing the real scales of justice. Wow.

20 min in and I’m mad as s—, and I’m black.

Wow, I am in complete shock! Thank you!

I’m black and I knew something was up. I couldn’t find enough information on the case. This is amazing, thanks man, I’ve been trying to convince people it was self defense, they won’t listen.

I thought I had made it to the peak of my disgust for the media’s blatant lies, but this, this is a WHOLE new level!! This is BETRAYAL to a young black man traumatized by the fear-mongering pushed out as a result of this case, and indoctrinated at TWELVE YEARS OLD with the idea that I was being “hunted down everywhere I went” because of my race. BETRAYAL!!.

The last quote nails it. One brave attorney can help undo the racial madness into which much of this country has descended since the death of Trayvon Martin.  If interested, please contact gzattorneycontact@gmail.com.

The broken window theory and modern Democrat governance

In 2020, Democrat political figures (mayors, governors, congress critters) have taken the broken window theory in a whole new (very bad) direction.

If you’re not reading Don Surber every day, why aren’t you? His posts are insanely intelligent. He has a knack for distilling things to their essence. He did it again today with a post about how we’re witnessing the broken windows theory play out across Democrat-run America. For you young’uns, assuming any of you read this site, the broken windows theory (which James Q. Wilson and George L. Kelling introduced in 1982) is a simple one: If governments allow people to get away with small crimes, the people will escalate to large crimes.

This theory shouldn’t be complicated. It’s the criminal’s version of “if you give ’em an inch, they’ll take a mile.” Every parent also knows this theory too.

What Wilson and Kelling did was to quantify it based upon the urban breakdowns in the 1970s. (Those of you who lived in New York back then know what I’m talking about.) To illustrate the theory, the pointed to an interesting phenomenon: If a building has a broken window and no one fixes it, very soon all of the windows in that building will be broken. This, in turn, is the criminal’s version of “dance like there’s no one watching.’ Once the criminals realize that no one cares, they party.

New York had something of a renaissance when fed-up New Yorkers voted in Mayor Rudy Guiliani, who promised to fix those broken windows. Working with proactive police chiefs, the New York City government clamped down on graffiti, aggressive car window washers, public urination and defection, fare jumpers, and all the other “lifestyle” crimes that made New York a hellhole. When the bad guys realized that the police were watching, they retreated. It was that simple. Life for everyone in New York, no matter their color or gender identity, got much better.

Don Surber points out how Democrat policies across America have made a u-turn from the broken windows approach to policing. He starts with a round-up from Blogger K.T. Cat:

  • In Atlanta, traffic stops are down 80%. No big deal? Total arrests are down 71%. The cops have walked off the job while still getting paid.
  • Chicago set a record for shootings last weekend. The middle of the week hasn’t been much of an improvement.
  • Minneapolis had at least 1,600 gunshots in the last 30 days, almost all of which came from the black neighborhoods.
  • In Tampa, cops were ambushed by a black mob when they responded to a call about a shooting in a black neighborhood.
  • New York City shootings have doubled since the anti-police riots began.
  • In Portland, the police allowed an anti-cop mob to lock them in one of their precinct houses. They didn’t come out to defend it, but cowered inside.
  • In Milwaukee, a mob attacked the police and firemen as they responded to a case of missing teenage girls.

Don draws the correct conclusion:

This is not an overnight nightmare. Democrats have planned this BLM rioting for a long time, and have actually held test runs in Ferguson, Missouri, and Baltimore. Apparently, they are satisfied with their finished product.

But the breaking of windows has been going on for some time. First, Democrat mayors and the like stop enforcing drug laws. Then they make it OK to pee in the street. In California, the state government stopped enforcing shoplifting laws. Los Angeles started allowing hobos to put up pup tents.

I would go one further, though. This isn’t just a case of Democrat politicians paving the way for their violent footsoldiers by making the conditions easy for a breakdown in law and order. Instead, across America, Democrat politicians are doing something new: They are inciting the masses to break the windows. We aren’t witnessing an oppressed people rise up against a totalitarian politician class. We are, instead, seeing a political class that has its hands on some levers of power, using the mob against those people who still cling to the rule of law and their increasingly limited freedoms.

When you look at the Democrats, you see a Superman-style Bizarro World, one in which everything is bass-ackward. Men are women. Women are men. Free people are slaves. Racism is desirable (if it’s the correct kind, of course). Silence is the wrong kind of racism. Words justify violent brutality. Hardened criminals are the good guys. Entrenched politicians are revolutionaries. And at the top of this heap of backward insanity, the best politician Democrats have to offer is one they and the footsoldiers and useful idiots know is demented.

It is to be hoped that American voters who are not true believers realize that Bizarro World is an ugly place, devoid of decency, morality, and stability. Those who don’t like Trump’s personality, need to have the wisdom to realize that there are worse things than a president whose mannerisms and speech irritate you. We’re hanging off the cliff by our fingertips now, and this is not the time to rebuff our rescuer because he’s wearing the wrong shirt.
