It took him 18 minutes to Gin up the Mob but:

"It took Gov. Tony Evers two days to wake up and proclaim a “State of Emergency” exists in Wisconsin. Tuesday, after he issued the declaration, police say three people were shot and two killed during ongoing rioting in Wisconsin streets."

Regardless of your position on abortion; Kamala Harris' bending of the law and possible breaking of the law on behalf of her political allies and financiers is immoral, unethical and just down right ugly, especially in it's transparency. She seems to not even care if she gets caught.

I think what he meant was that Biden can't turn "any more left"

Because Bernie already drove him off the cliff.

Wow. this is deeply impactful at least to me.

My son recently graduated with a degree in History. He is considering 2 different advanced degree options (or possible none) and since I only promised to pay for the Bachelors Degree he is making a careful decision and getting some career experience in at least one of those fields before borrowing money to continue his education, or not.

He and I recently had a conversation with a family friend who was less than complimentary regarding my son's degree choice. He stated that a university degree should be vocational in nature, something along the lines of pursuing an ROI to justify the cost. My son's response was that a world full of ignorant Engineers and Doctors will give us a very high powered 4th Reich or Soviet Union. He them said "What do you think we are seeing in China right now?" I have never been more proud.

With all of the attention on Joe Biden's mental decline maybe it's time to consider the obvious moral decline of this octogenarian. I remember when Dianne Feinstein was a Moderate Democrat. after 30 years in the Senate she has become completely morally bankrupt. Her nonsense and obfuscation during the Kavanaugh hearings was despicable. Now she has apparently forgotten that one of her former aides was a Chinese spy.

While we are hanging ourselves, The CCP continues to brutalize Hong Kong.

The great COVID scam of 2020 continues. This is from my county's health department site.

With the recent surge of cases due to something other than mostly peaceful protests, roughly 80% of cases are in people under 60 and roughly 90% of the deaths are in people over 60. and NOBODY under 19 has died.

So why are we hiding and why are the schools not opening????

I saw this posted earlier by @47Ronin. Tim is on the money here. I've put off my latest I-Phone update because I don't want the Contact Tracing App placed on my phone, even if I am told that it is voluntary to activate it... for now...

It looks like the CCP agrees with Gretchen Whitmer that protests for Freedom spread the Wuhan Flu. We are so lucky in Portland and Seattle that Marxist Anarchy actually spreads only peace and love.

This lady is the Wild Bill Hickok of Politics! She may be a gun for hire but she keeps her barrel hot. I love to watch her shoot. It's like the shooting gallery at the county fair. And Mr. Acosta is almost always the player piano.

We need something pleasant right about now. How about Hydrangeas?

Ok, so Mark has done "The Work" but do I really need to for the purpose of engaging in honest debate with people who are not interested in honest debate? I have a business to run and a family to lead and a life to live; a life that up until 3 weeks ago didn't have anything to do with any of this bullshit. and I don't accept the Kafka trap or wish to take the bait.

"Notably, participants were asked if they were “comfortable with your relatives, friends, and coworkers knowing how you vote.” Only 29 percent of Trump voters said yes, versus 82 percent of Biden voters. This “shy” vote phenomenon was one of the reasons polls were so wrong in 2016. Many pro-Trumpers, wanting to avoid stigma, simply won’t tell a colleague or even a pollster whom they plan to vote for."

Insightful article and I just love this line. "Other observers don’t see contradictions, but a catty and spoiled girl whose main pursuit is the collection of status points — of which the latest method is to pose as an ally of the Marxist Black Lives Matter movement. She could be the one giving you the finger as she cuts you off in her Mercedes, and her natural habitat is the public middle school where she is forever stuck scanning the landscape for winners and losers."

When Tammy Duckworth's name started getting tossed around as a potential Biden running mate i didn't know much about her so I looked up her resume and it is most certainly impressive, this women is very accomplished. Then I checked out her voting record and found that she is a frightening big government ideologue. This weekend she put the icing on the cake.

This week end I was going to post a question to the group but I hesitated because I thought it was a little too soon. Looks like others have "scooped me".

We seem to have reached a point that even Andrew Cuomo understands that we need to take care of the very old and the very sick.

With our better understanding of how to protect the truly vulnerable and emerging therapeutics is it time we stopped hiding from "The Chinese Virus" and started measuring our success by how many people contract it and live rather than by how many people contract it?

Looks like Hydroxy is on a comeback and you will have a hard time learning about it on MSM. @bernd-M you might want to check this out

Let's not forget the "wisdom of Josef Goebbels"

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

Continuing the theme of what we can all do to regain National Sanity these ideas aren't a bad start.

Yesterday Klavan was even more effective than usual. However as he points out, people like himself are primarily preaching to the choir. Each of us need to start doing whatever we can in our own circles to push back against the insanity with resolute common sense and good judgement.

Yes we need to, as a society find ways to regain at least a small position in The Culture and The Academy but that's too big a topic for this post. To paraphrase Dr. Peterson, if each of us finds a way to contribute to making things better in our own sphere to fix ourselves and then our family and friends , maybe that will become the beginning of building something that preserves what is good, true and beautiful.

Thanks to @TorridLuvr and @Anorton for the inspirational ways that they are teaching their children and to @DaveRubin for doing it in the public square and handing out more Red Pills than anyone else on The U-Tubes

It's good to pause from the internal details of our home grown Marxist uprising and Wuhan Flu Pandemic and occasionally look across the Pacific to the instigator of both. Take note of the oppression of the Chinese People by the Gang of Thugs otherwise known as the CCP.

Thank you John Wayne

The Hyphen, Webster's Dictionary defines,
Is a symbol used to divide a compound word or a single word.
So it seems to me that when a man calls himself
An "Afro-American," a "Mexican-American," "Italian-American,"
An "Irish-American," "Jewish-American,"
What he's sayin' is, "I'm a divided American."
Well, we all came from other places,
Different creeds and different races,
To form a nation...to become as one.
Yet look at the harm a line has done--
A simple little line, and yet
As divisive as a line can get.
A crooked cross the n***s flew,
And the Russian hammer and sickle too--
Time bombs in the lives of Man;
But none of these could ever fan
The flames of hatred faster than
The Hyphen.

The Russian hammer built a wall
That locks men's hearts from freedom's call.
A crooked cross flew overhead
Above twenty million tragic dead--
Among them men from this great nation,
Who died for freedom's preservation.
A hyphen is a line that's small;
It can be a bridge or be a wall.
A bridge can save you...

I wanted to share what I thought was a very effective effort to define a very slippery term. This is from a Christian Pastor.

"The news is full of the word “woke.” Woke people, woke agenda, woke action. Television and internet show woke people burning things down. What is this?

“Woke” is one piece of Marxism. Marx says we are exploited and oppressed. Oppression is woven through the system. The system itself is oppressive. Oppression is so second-nature in everything around us that we are unconscious of it. We need transformative Marxist knowledge to raise our consciousness, to wake us up.

When Marx says, “Religion is the opium of the masses,” he is talking about the need to be woke. Religion is a tool of oppression because it keeps people asleep. Like opium, it deadens pain and clouds the truth. Religion soothes suffering and gives false hope. So Marxist revolutions remove images of Christ, defile statues of the Virgin Mary, break stained glass windows out of churches, and enforce ...

We're all aware, even those who won't admit it, that The Academy has became a factory that makes cogs for the leftist machine works. But as a side gig they also are influencing our young people to look kindly upon our good friends in Beijing. A big part of that propaganda effort has been the proliferation of Confucius Society chapters in many American Universities. These should all be closed or at least countered with a Disney Hall of Presidents exhibit.

Sorry but it's time for my first on-line rant.

I have always intellectually understood the term reactionary, but I never really viscerally understood it until the last 2 weeks or so. As I watched chaos breaking out in cities across the nation and watched television coverage, wholly devoted to narrative over anything approaching news and even saw people who must know better; just flat out deny obvious truth regarding the BLM and Antifa ties to communists and anarchists around the world. I started to react. To get angry, to feel like striking back at the spoiled children, misled losers, useful idiots and running dogs.

Don't miss understand, I knew that something was wrong. I knew the culture was broken, I knew that the political class was serving themselves not the people, I knew the Corporatists were selling America to the CCP one job at a time. I knew the Universities were teaching our young people to hate America but I thought that if I kept my kid's heads of straight I was doing ...

Is it possible that these riots and protests could be enough of an infection event to shove us towards herd immunity? If we do that and send the kids and college students back to school that might do the trick.

"There is no safe option here"

The only way through this is to go through this. We have flattened the curve and now it's time to go do what we need to do as free people, behaving maturely and sensibly but facing the reality that is before us.

For anyone looking for some better understanding of WHY? America seems to be splitting into 2 distinct camps, this classic book has given me a great foundation for understanding the motivations on both sides. It's helped me to better handle some folks and also given me the tools to quickly pull them apart when necessary. I don't know if Dr Sowell is still doing interviews but I would love to hear his thoughts on this current pandemic and our increasingly dystopian reaction to it. maybe on The Rubin Report? @ Dave Rubin???

This is bananas. Are there really this many anonymous leakers left in the Trump Whitehouse or is the WAPO just making it up at this point?

According to the "article" there are leaks by 1) "4 senior Administration officials" 2) "Senior officials across multiple government agencies" 3) "Officials in American intelligence agencies"
Then they ad phrases like...

In private, Trump and aides have discussed stripping China of its “sovereign immunity,” how private could it have been?

or

U.S. officials spoke on the condition of anonymity for this story to discuss private and internal negotiations.

The only named source in the entire article is Geng Shuang, a spokesman for China’s Foreign Ministry, .

Is this journalism or rumor mongery?

I read that the Insane Clown Posse cancelled their gathering for this summer. I have been reading all about the Where in the world is Kim Jong Un, story. Then I found this photo and started to ask some deeper questions.......
