The Enslavement of the Leftist Mind: How the Democrat Plantation Resembles the Matrix

There are many reputable black conservatives, but Democrat propaganda outlets, true to blue-pill form, render these people as invisible as they possibly can.  And so it goes. . .

“Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj”  — Roseanne Barr’s reply to a thread of tweets about Valerie’s Jarrett’s possible role in helping Barack Obama cover up administration scandals

 

“I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans.  I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks.  I should have known better.  Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste.  — Roseanne Barr’s same-day apology to Valerie Jarrett and all Americans for her bad tweet

“They have assassinated his [President Trump’s] character—tried to, the Left [has]—and there is no apology [like the one Roseanne gave]. . . .  We don’t like the hypocrisy. . . .  We are not racist, our president is not racist.  He is a realist, and the only color he sees is green, and he wants everybody to have some of it.”  — Diamond and Silk, defending Roseanne’s apology for a bad tweet as well as President Trump’s integrity, after Valerie Jarrett blamed the president for Roseanne’s tweet (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ztsyH7DBW_A)

 

Down the Rabbit Hole of Racist Accusations: Can You See the Matrix?

“You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes,” says Morpheus to Neo, in The Matrix, a 1999 science fiction movie written and directed by the Wachowskis.  The Matrix posits a dystopian reality where sentient machines, that are all a part of the hive known as the Matrix, utilize the body heat of human beings as an energy source.  To this purpose, the human population is kept in perpetual slumber and made to believe that their dream lives are transpiring in the real world.  (Read more about The Matrix here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Matrix or watch the movie: https://www.barnesandnoble.com/s/the+matrix+movie?_requestid=12599737.)  Taking the red pill is how conservatives refer to people who are choosing to wake up to the reality that the media’s depictions of people—their elevating of people to angels or demons, good racists who only hate white people or bad racists who only hate everyone else, for example—serve, almost exclusively, the needs of the Left.

Since the 1999 release of The Matrix, American Conservatives (also known as textbook Classical Liberals, people who value individual liberty as free of government force and coercion as possible) have adopted the vocabulary of The Matrix as appropriately metaphorical with regard to the almost universal control exercised by the Leftist conspiracy media.  Blue-pill Democrats, like Mark Zuckerberg, are now attempting to shut down conservative speech and press emanating from red-pill media outlets, by making it difficult to share information generated by New Media on Facebook and other blue-pill social networks.  The Matrix, metaphorically speaking, is fighting to maintain the illusory World of Big Lies where all conservatives are racists against the Other or self-loathing against the Self.  This brings us to the strange case of Roseanne Barr.

 

Is Roseanne Barr Suddenly a Racist Who Deserves to Lose Her Job?

At 2:45 AM, on May 29th, 2018, Comedienne Roseanne Barr was “Ambien tweeting” a failed attempt at a joke about Valerie Jarret (https://www.cnbc.com/2018/05/29/abc-cancels-roseanne-reboot-after-racist-tweet-by-roseanne-barr.html?yptr=yahoo).  After apologizing, as soon as she realized her error in judgment, Roseanne found herself fired from her hit show.  Even President Trump was given a consequence, finding himself accused—although unjustly so—of racism, in veiled comments made by Valerie Jarrett herself regarding Roseanne’s tweet.  (You can access VJ’s comments here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f8kT7cHDWk0.)  In the slumbering world of the Leftist Matrix, where appearance is so easily accepted as reality, it all makes sense.  Roseanne is now suddenly a racist, must have been all along, because the brainwashed somnambulists say so.  President Trump, who was universally admired—even to the point of being a favorite subject of rappers—until he ran for president, is now almost universally characterized as having been “always a racist” ever since entering the presidential race as a Republican back in mid-June of 2015.  Trump’s entire life of generosity to all has been revoked, even erased in part, 1984-style, by the mass hallucinations brought on by the Democrat Matrix.

 

By the Same Standard, Blackface Jimmy Fallon Is More Deserving of a Good Firing than Roseanne

There is no defending Roseanne’s comment.  Ambien tweeting or no, she is responsible for what she said, and it was indeed an offensive comment.  The question is this: Were Matrix media fair to target Roseanne by firing her, when they have allowed an unapologetic Jimmy Fallon to keep his show?  Why did media elites approve of Fallon’s racist blackface performance, showcased at the Golden Globes, wherein he made fun of Chris Rock in a most unflattering way?  After showing the blackface performance to an obviously-unappreciative audience via large-screen video, Fallon doubled down on his offensive behavior by continuing his racist Chris Rock impression, only without the blackface.  Judge for yourself, by clicking here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E37BSMRA7-o.  Fallon never did apologize.  But, since Fallon is an agent of the Matrix, who hands out a huge amount of blue pills almost daily, he does not get called on the carpet, let alone fired, even though his performance was pre-planned, not off-the-cuff, and a great deal more offensive than Roseanne’s impromptu tweet.  So, despite Fallon’s racist behavior, Fallon gets a pass.

 

Blackface Jimmy Kimmel Is Also Protected by Virtue of Being a Democrat

And what about Jimmy Kimmel’s use of blackface to make fun of black athletes?  Was Kimmel shut down by the Matrix, for his egregiously offensive display of bigotry against black people?  One viewing of Kimmel’s horribly racist shtick is worth a thousand words!  So, without further ado, here is Comedian Jimmy Kimmel in an extraordinarily racist blackface depiction of African-American athletes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-wse5lgIDxM.  There was never an apology for this incredibly distasteful performance.  And there was never even a threat posed to Kimmel’s employment.  Kimmel is a Democrat who openly hates President Trump and repeatedly participates in the Big Lies of the media by smearing the president and his supporters as racists.  But his fans generally take the blue pills he offers them, so everything is just dandy.  Jimmy Kimmel is considered a fine human being, no matter what he does or says.  And Trump and his supporters are always bigots, even if they are not the insensitive ones making fun of black people by putting on blackface and depicting African-Americans in a horribly derogatory manner.

 

Bill Maher Calls Himself a “House Nigga”

Let us not forget Bill Maher’s labeling himself as a “house nigga.”  Here is Bill Maher’s racist commentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GEmRYr2WtqU.  It is true that Maher was criticized for his inappropriate use of a racist epithet, but Maher apologized, and liberals were eager to accept his apology, keen to absolve him of racist wrongdoing.  Maher was exonerated as heroic in his contrition, demonstrating real depth of character, as the Matrix narrative would have it; and, it might be noted, Maher was never threatened with losing his job, because Maher, of course, is one of those operatives who is depended upon to keep too many independent voters from stampeding off the Democrat Plantation.  This is why Maher’s endorsement of the Second Amendment and his criticism of Islamic totalitarianism and Islamic jihad have been tolerated by the Leftist Matrix.  He is there to corral as many independent voters as possible for the Democrats, come Election Day.  His more devoted followers happily take the blue pill and swallow almost everything he says and does as being perfectly acceptable.

 

Michelle Wolf’s Unapologetic, Quasi-Racist, Attack against Sara Sanders

So, what about Michelle Wolf’s invocation of the term “Uncle Tom” to smear White House Press Secretary Sara Sanders, accusing Sanders of being the equivalent of a race traitor to her own kind—her own kind being, of course, womankind.  What Wolf calls Sanders, verbatim, is an “Uncle Tom for white women who disappoint other white women.”  This is a vile and reprehensible description of an honorable woman who, if she had worked for Obama, would have been praised by Wolf.  Democrats laughed about the bullying at the time Wolf made the “joke” and continue to laugh about it ad infinitum.  Wolf, at the time of this writing, has still not apologized to Sanders.  Nor has anyone, among the Democrat leadership, offered any sympathetic comments.  Beyond her words, Wolf’s delivery, in itself, is pretty acerbic.  Here are Michelle Wolf’s comments at the White House Correspondents Dinner: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NclJj1h_MW4.  Michelle Wolf’s popularity has increased, among the denizens of the Matrix, ever since she made her scathing and bullying comments towards Sara Sanders.  Her biggest excuse, of course, is that she is a comedienne.  But is Roseanne Barr herself not a comedienne?  To see the parallel and understand the hypocrisy of the situation could prove risky for full-time inhabits the Matrix, who just might find themselves in danger of inadvertently swallowing a red pill in place of a blue one.  They would be free of the Matrix, but they would no longer be accepted by the typically intolerant people who remain addicted to the blue pill.

 

Diamond & Silk Defend Roseanne & Tell Blacks to “Get Off the Democrat Plantation!”

Black Trump supporters Diamond and Silk appeared with Maria Bartiromo on Fox, and said that they do not believe Roseanne Barr to be a racist, nor does the apologetic Roseanne deserve to be fired.  If she deserves firing, then so do the women of The View, according to Diamond and Silk.  Please watch Diamond and Silk’s remarks, which begin at the 0:40 mark, here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXKyDFyRj2Y.  Diamond and Silk have been credited with distributing record numbers of red pills—Morpheus-style—to many in the black community, among others.

 

Conservatives Believe in Helping Everyone & Trump Loves All People

Truth be told, conservatives wish to empower all individuals, which naturally includes every single minority that wants to participate in the American Dream.  And President Trump has already helped more black Americans, during the first 18 months of his presidency, than President Obama helped in his entire eight years.  At this writing, black unemployment is 5.9%, the lowest ever on record, and Hispanic unemployment is also at a record low.  President Trump has signed a law to make Martin Luther King’s home a National Historic Park (https://youtu.be/ty4V1YXxa7s), offering heightened protection to King’s important legacy; and President Trump also has recently pardoned Jack Johnson (http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/05/24/donald-trump-pardons-boxer-jack-johnson-posthumously/), wiping the slate of Johnson’s legacy clean for descendants and family members, in an important act of compassion that Obama refused to perform, despite the sustained pleadings of Mike Tyson on behalf of the Johnson family.  Watch Trump as he makes kind remarks about Boxer Jack Johnson to Johnson family members at the signing of Johnson’s pardon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5u_GKzXWXc.  To many, watching President Trump relate to other human beings, and witnessing his natural love of all people, has, over time, managed to cause a major red-pill effect, regarding Trump’s love of people.  Indeed, the Trump presidency has helped millions, ultimately, to see the Matrix.

 

President Trump Deserves an Apology

So, perhaps President Trump deserves some apologies from those on the Left who have accused him of racism, and especially from Snoop Dogg, who acted out an assassination of him in a now-infamous rap video, wherein white people are all depicted as clowns who deserve to die and be fed to the dogs: “It’s been a week since my dogs ate, let ’em eat,” raps Snoop Dogg, in a clear reference to how white people deserve to be food for his dogs.  The climax of the video is Snoop Dogg’s assassination of President Donald Trump.  See Snoop Dogg’s racist depiction of Trump’s assassination at marker 3:07: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E4i3bAtEuJE.  No apology was ever forthcoming from Snoop Dogg.  But Snoop Dogg is a dedicated Democrat and, therefore, an operative of the Matrix, and, as we all know, racism is condoned for Democrats, whether it be white racism or black racism, or any other form of bigotry.  Elite Democrats, after all, are the masters and kapos (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kapo_(concentration_camp)) who run the Democrat Plantation and, therefore, get to discriminate with impunity—same as it ever was: same as when the seven Democrats on the Supreme Court ruled in favor of slaveholders’ rights in the Dred Scott case (http://hd.housedivided.dickinson.edu/node/9599); same as when the Democrat South seceded to fight Northern forces as commanded by Abolitionist Republican President Abraham Lincoln in the Civil War; same as when Democrats founded the Ku Klux Klan in Pulaski, Tennessee (https://eaglerising.com/8314/true-stripes-racist-democrats-colorblind-republicans/); same as when Democrats repealed all the Republican-passed civil rights laws post-1892 upon obtaining power in the Congress and the White House; same as when Democrats passed Jim Crow laws; same as when Democrats started the welfare-state “plantation” to keep black people forever reliant on government and which brought about the destruction of the black family (https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/262726/how-liberal-welfare-state-destroyed-black-america-john-perazzo) by forcing women to marry the government, rather than the father of her child, in order to receive “assistance.”

Of course, if you will continue to take the blue pill of believing the blue narrative of the Matrix and will continue to shun taking the red pill and learning the true history of America, the Democrat narrative will all continue to make perfect sense to you: the Democrats will appear to have changed their spots to the anti-racism variety back in the 1960s—never mind that pesky Ku Klux Klansman of a Democrat senator named Robert Byrd (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Byrd) who was mentor to Hillary Clinton, likely a racist herself (https://hubpages.com/politics/Hillary-Clinton-Might-Have-Dressed-in-Blackface).  KKK recruiter and Grand Dragon Robert Byrd was the longest-serving senator in US history; and never mind the fact that Republicans voted in higher percentages for civil rights laws than Democrats (https://eaglerising.com/8314/true-stripes-racist-democrats-colorblind-republicans/); and never mind the fact that President Trump’s administration has helped more black people and minority businesses with his economic policies than any other president, except Ronald Reagan (https://www.newsmax.com/chuckmorse/trump-economy-tax-cuts-minorities/2018/01/19/id/838213/).  The problem, of course, with those blue pills, is that reality itself—if you are long exposed to a good, sensible dose of it—can be a red pill all on its own.

 

Red Pill/Blue Pill: Candace Owens Sees the Matrix

People like Diamond and Silk and Candace Owens are, however, onto the Democrats’ illusory prescriptions and racist recipes.  These are people who see the Matrix clearly, people who have taken the red pill (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_pill_and_blue_pill) and can effortlessly see the racism behind the Democrats’ labeling of blacks who think for themselves as “Uncle Toms.”  Here is what Candace Owens has to say: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=evd_uwHgXeA.

 

The Democrat Party Weaponizes Racism Only against Non-Democrats

The endorsement by Democrats of unapologetic racists who never see their own jobs threatened, and the unequal standard which they apply to conservatives in order to justify their own discriminatory practices, should be an eye-opener to many who like to think of themselves as “woke” but who are, in reality, just marching in lockstep, with the blue-pill Left, to the drumbeat of a hypnotic media that daily offers up its blue pills to maintain an illusory façade that hides the truth.  It is Constitutional conservatives who favor fact-based knowledge, truth, independence, freedom, Natural Rights, and the Golden Rule.  And it is the Leftist leaders of the Democrat Party who promote a false sense of security, based upon false narratives—or “fake news” as our red-pill president has dubbed it—of racism and other accusatory smears that are all based upon blue-pill social indoctrination, rather than red-pill rational thought and the rules of evidence.

 

If You Have Not Yet Done So, Take the Red Pill!

If you have not yet seen the Matrix, but now wish to do so, then take the red pill!  You will be in good company, if you do: Black Conservatives Diamond and Silk (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ztsyH7DBW_A), Black Co-Founder of the TEA Party Niger Innis (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mcqWno_sWqE), Black Commentator and Tea Party Supporter Deneen Borelli (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSuuCVIe9w8), Black Ex-Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hGI1i1fJKr0), Black Financial Expert and Fox Business News Anchor Charles Payne (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKZ2BP22DmQ) are all available in numerous Internet-based video resources.  There are many reputable black conservatives, but Democrat propaganda outlets, true to blue-pill form, render these people as invisible as they possibly can.  And so it goes. . . .

Former Van Halen Lead Sammy Hagar Blasts Coronavirus Lockdowns, Refuses to Comply

Rock legend and former Van Halen lead singer Sammy Hagar says he is no longer willing to abide by the left’s coronavirus lockdowns.

Published

on

Rock-N-Roll legend and former Van Halen lead singer Sammy Hagar says he is no longer willing to abide by the left’s coronavirus lockdowns.

Hagar sat down with KSHE-FM radio on Friday and said that he is “not locking down anymore.”

The now 72-year-old rocker said that when he first heard of the virus and how it was so devastating for people over 60, he was like “Whoa, whoa, whoa!”

“I got a little nervous,” he told the audience.

“And then I thought about it, and after three weeks of lockdown, I was really getting bored, but I also started kind of liking it,” he continued.

But as the days ticked by, Hagar realized he was missing those close to him in his life.

“My whole life I worked every day of my life,” he said. “Sunday, it may be the Lord’s day off, but it’s not Sammy Hagar’s day off. I worked every freakin’ day of my life in some fashion on one of my projects. Either I’m recording, or I’m writing, or whatever. So all of a sudden, I went, ‘Man, I don’t have anything to do.'”

After a few weeks he woke up to a new realization.

“[Y]ou know what I thought of?” he said. “I thought, ‘You know what? I’ve had the best life of any human being on this planet. If the damn thing wants to come and get me and kill me, let it be. Life isn’t gonna be any better from this day on for the rest of my life than it has been.”

“I swear to you: I came to grips with it, and I was not afraid. I didn’t want to get anyone else contagious if I had it, but I don’t have it — I’m healthy as a freakin’ tick,” Hagar said.

The whole thing got him thinking about the plight others have found themselves in because of this virus nonsense.

“[T]hen I got jumped up about it,” he exclaimed. “I said, ‘This is bullcrap, people being afraid and staying away from their own children and their own parents.’ It just took the love out of families. I hate it. I don’t say the word ‘hate’ very much, but I hate this freakin’ coronavirus crap. And I’m not afraid of it, and I’m not locking down anymore.”

The “I Can’t Drive 55” singer concluded that he now refuses to live in fear and is ready to go about living his life.

“I’m not afraid of it anymore,” he insisted. “That’s all I’m saying. Everybody, be their own self. I’m not trying to sway anyone any direction. But Sammy Hagar, I’m not afraid of it. There you go.”

Memorial Day Special: Never Forget What American Troops Are Made Of

Published

on

To honor our troops for Memorial Day this year, I am going to share this story about their mettle. What follows are excerpts from remarks by Marine Lt. Gen. John F. Kelly made to the Semper Fi Society of St. Louis on November 13, 2010. While leading his platoon on a combat patrol, Kelly’s son, Marine 1st Lt. Robert Michael Kelly, had been killed in action four days earlier in Sangin, in southern Afghanistan. Lt. Kelly was only 29-years-old.

Giving Thanks for Our Warriors

“Those with less of a sense of service to the nation never understand it when men and women of character step forward to look danger and adversity straight in the eye, refusing to blink, or give ground, even to their own deaths… No, they are not victims but are warriors, your warriors, and warriors are never victims regardless of how and where they fall. Death, or fear of death, has no power over them. Their paths are paved by sacrifice, sacrifices they gladly make… for you….

“Two years ago when I was the commander of all U.S. and Iraqi forces, in fact, the 22nd of April 2008, two Marine infantry battalions, 1/9 ‘The Walking Dead,’ and 2/8 were switching out in Ramadi… Two Marines, Corporal Jonathan Yale and Lance Corporal Jordan Haerter, 22 and 20 years old respectively, one from each battalion, were assuming the watch together at the entrance gate of an outpost that contained a makeshift barracks housing 50 Marines… Yale was a dirt poor mixed-race kid from Virginia with a wife and daughter, and a mother and sister who lived with him and he supported as well. He did this on a yearly salary of less than $23,000. Haerter, on the other hand, was a middle-class white kid from Long Island. They were from two completely different worlds… But they were Marines, combat Marines, forged in the same crucible of Marine training, and because of this bond they were brothers as close, or closer, than if they were born of the same woman.

“The mission orders they received from the sergeant squad leader I am sure went something like: ‘Okay you two clowns, stand this post and let no unauthorized personnel or vehicles pass. You clear?’ I am also sure Yale and Haerter then rolled their eyes and said in unison something like: ‘Yes, Sergeant,’ with just enough attitude that made the point without saying the words, ‘No kidding sweetheart, we know what we’re doing.’ They then relieved two other Marines on watch and took up their post at the entry control point of Joint Security Station Nasser, in the Sophia section of Ramadi, al Anbar, Iraq.

“A few minutes later a large blue truck turned down the alley way–perhaps 60-70 yards in length–and sped its way through the serpentine of concrete jersey walls. The truck stopped just short of where the two were posted and detonated, killing them both catastrophically. Twenty-four brick masonry houses were damaged or destroyed. A mosque 100 yards away collapsed. The truck’s engine came to rest two hundred yards away knocking most of a house down before it stopped. Our explosive experts reckoned the blast was made of 2,000 pounds of explosives. Two died, and because these two young infantrymen didn’t have it in their DNA to run from danger, they saved 150 of their Iraqi and American brothers-in-arms…

“What we didn’t know at the time, and only learned a couple of days later after I wrote a summary and submitted both Yale and Haerter for posthumous Navy Crosses, was that one of our security cameras, damaged initially in the blast, recorded some of the suicide attack. It happened exactly as [Iraqi policemen on the scene] had described it. It took exactly six seconds from when the truck entered the alley until it detonated.

“You can watch the last six seconds of their young lives. Putting myself in their heads I supposed it took about a second for the two Marines to separately come to the same conclusion about what was going on once the truck came into their view at the far end of the alley. Exactly no time to talk it over or call the sergeant to ask what they should do. Only enough time to take half an instant and think about what the sergeant told them to do only a few minutes before: ‘Let no unauthorized personnel or vehicles pass.’ The two Marines had about five seconds left to live.

“It took maybe another two seconds for them to present their weapons, take aim, and open up. By this time the truck was halfway through the barriers and gaining speed the whole time. Here, the recording shows a number of Iraqi police, some of whom had fired their AKs, now scattering like the normal and rational men they were–some running right past the Marines. They had three seconds left to live.

“For about two seconds more, the recording shows the Marines’ weapons firing nonstop… the truck’s windshield exploding into shards of glass as their rounds take it apart and tore into the body of the son-of-a-beech who is trying to get past them to kill their brothers–American and Iraqi–bedded down in the barracks, totally unaware of the fact that their lives at that moment depended entirely on two Marines standing their ground. If they had been aware, they would have known they were safe… because two Marines stood between them and a crazed suicide bomber. The recording shows the truck careening to a stop immediately in front of the two Marines. In all of the instantaneous violence Yale and Haerter never hesitated. By all reports and by the recording, they never stepped back. They never even started to step aside. They never even shifted their weight. With their feet spread shoulder-width apart, they leaned into the danger, firing as fast as they could work their weapons. They had only one second left to live.

“The truck explodes. The camera goes blank. Two young men go to their God. Six seconds. Not enough time to think about their families, their country, their flag, or about their lives or their deaths, but more than enough time for two very brave young men to do their duty… into eternity. That is the kind of people who are on watch all over the world tonight–for you.”

(Originally published by The Weekly Standard in December of 2010)

Tales like this are legion in the annuls of the military history of the United States of America. Our citizen soldiers are some of the best ever seen by mankind. This Memorial Day, please do remember them, pray for them, support them.

Judge Sullivan Hires High-Profile Attorney To Argue His Reasons For Not Dropping Flynn Case

Published

on

The federal judge Emmet Sullivan overseeing the case against former national security advisor Michael Flynn has hired a high-profile attorney to help with his response to an appeals court, The Washington Post reported.

The judge was ordered by an appeals court this week to explain his unorthodox handling of Michael Flynn’s ongoing case in district court. The DOJ this month moved to drop its case against Flynn, but Sullivan declined to immediately do so, instead, he’s appointing a retired judge to argue against dismissing the case.

He has retained Beth Wilkinson to represent him in defending his decision to a federal appeals court in Washington, according to a person familiar with the hire who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.

Twitchy:

As you know by now, the Department of Justice moved to drop the federal government’s case against Michael Flynn in light of new evidence, but the presiding judge in the case, Judge Emmet Sullivan, has resisted. He opened the case to public comment and appointed a retired judge, John Gleeson, to look into the possibility of trying Flynn for contempt of court for perjury. Gleeson had said he’d have his amicus brief filed by June 10, but on Thursday, a three-judge appeals court panel gave Sullivan until June 1 to explain his reasoning for not dropping the case.

Now it looks like Sullivan is pushing back even harder, as he’s hired a prominent trial lawyer to argue his desire to investigate whether dropping the case would be legal and ethical.

Sullivan is looking for all the help he can get not to dismiss the case and to charge Flynn with contempt of court. The Washington Post reports:

The federal judge who refused a Justice Department request to immediately drop the prosecution of former Trump adviser Michael Flynn has hired a high-profile trial lawyer to argue his reasons for investigating whether dismissing the case is legally or ethically appropriate.  More

You know I am not an attorney, but if a very experienced sitting Judge can’t articulate the reasons that he made a decision or order then the decision/order is probably unfounded.

Also, if a very experienced sitting federal judge needs to hire a high-profile attorney to shield himself then the order/decision is probably not just unfounded but possibly illegal too.

Coronavirus Death Counts Found Wildly Over Reported

The number of people who have died from the coronavirus have been inflated by states hoping to milk the deaths for federal dollars.

Published

on

More proof is coming out each week that the number of people who have actually died from the coronavirus have been greatly inflated by states hoping to milk the deaths for federal dollars.

On Saturday, it was reported that Colorado had to amend its death count because the reported numbers were far higher than the really are.

Per Fox News:

The change came after Colorado’s Department of Public Health admitted that its COVID-19 death toll was counting those who tested positive for the coronavirus but had died of other causes, Fox 31 Denver reported late Friday.

The department now says 1,150 Coloradoans who died had COVID-19 but only 878 of those deaths were “due to” COVID-19.

“We have been reporting at the state, deaths among people who had COVID-19 at the time of death and the cause of that death may or may not have been COVID-19,” said Dr. Eric France, the health state department’s chief medical officer.

France noted that state officials began hearing from hospitals, medical examiners, doctors, and others that the numbers were suspect.

One such story emerged from Montezuma County where a 35-year-old man was added to the coronavirus death rolls, but who didn’t actually die from the virus.

“The state is reporting that death as a COVID death, but our health department wanted to let people know that even though the person did have the virus, they did not die from it,” county officials said.

The numbers in Michigan have also come under a cloud.

“I think a lot of clinicians are putting that condition (COVID-19) on death certificates when it might not be accurate because they died with coronavirus and not of coronavirus,” Macomb County, Mich., Chief Medical Examiner Daniel Spitz told the Ann Arbor News last month.

“Are they entirely accurate? No,” Spitz said. “Are people dying of it? Absolutely. Are people dying of other things and coronavirus is maybe getting credit? Yeah, probably.”

Similar miscounting is occurring in states across the nation.

Per Fox News:

Illinois has been accused of skewing its COVID-19 death count. The CDC on Friday reported 3,792 coronavirus deaths in Illinois, which has been hard hit by the pandemic.

In April, the state’s Director of Public Health Dr. Ngozi Ezike told a coronavirus news briefing that the state’s COVID-19 death toll was counting those who died of “a clear alternate cause” but had the virus at the same time.

Another death in Arkansas was tallied as a COVID-29 death despite the truth of the matter.

In Arkansas, where 97 COVID-19 deaths have been reported, the count includes a woman who died at a nursing home in April.

But KTHV-TV reported interviewing the woman’s daughter, who had questions about including her mother in the count.

“My mother was 91 when she passed,” the daughter, who requested anonymity, said. “She had been in hospice since January. I feel the diagnosis of ‘respiratory failure due to COVID-19’ is not true. To add a death due to the virus just to inflate the numbers is not right.”

Indeed, San Diego recently had to admit that it has had only six actually COVID-19 deaths despite recent claims.

This sort of nonsense is going on everywhere.

Secret Service Busts Nigerian Crooks Defrauding U.S. Unemployment System for Hundreds of Millions

The U.S. Secret Service has busted a Nigerian fraud ring bilking America for “hundreds of millions” in fraudulent unemployment payments.

Published

on

The U.S. Secret Service has busted a Nigerian fraud ring that has been bilking America for “hundreds of millions” in fraudulent unemployment payments.

As if the U.S. isn’t bankrupting itself fast enough with the massive loss of jobs amid this coronavirus hysteria, now we find the Nigerians stealing millions from us with our obviously easily defrauded unemployment benefit system.

A Secret Service memo obtained by the New York Times described the attack as a well-organized Nigerian fraud ring that may be stealing “hundreds of millions of dollars.”

“We are actively running down every lead we are getting,” Roy Dotson, a special agent who specializes in financial fraud at the Secret Service, told the paper.

The foreign crooks are using stolen Social Security numbers and other personal information likely purchased by hackers to file for unearned benefits.

The fraud ring jumped into action thanks to the millions of lost jobs because of the coronavirus lockdowns.

The first place the growing fraud was seen was in the State of Washington where people who did not file for unemployment found that their names were being used to file for fraudulent benefits.

The Secret Service noted that the fraud is slowing down response time for people who are legally filing for benefits.

At Bellingham, Washington’s Western Washington University, more than 400 of 2,500 employees have been targeted with fake unemployment claims, the university’s spokesman told the Times.

“This is a gut punch,” said Suzi LeVine, the commissioner of the Washington State Employment Security Department.

The Secret Service said they are also finding evidence of the fake claims in Florida, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Rhode Island and Wyoming.

Outrageous: Now Leftist L.A. Mayor Proclaims that City ‘Will Never Completely Open’

Published

on

The left-wing mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti, has issued the shocking proclamation that the city will “never” fully re-open because of the coronavirus.

The liberal mayor insisted this week that the city will never fully reopen until there is a “cure” for the feared coronavirus.

This, though, is an utterly unscientific proclamation because science has yet to cure many viruses like the coronavirus. So, if Garcetti is going to wait for a “cure,” he may never be ready to allow his city to reopen.

These outrageous comments come on the heels of his decision to keep much of L.A. shuttered through August.

In a rambling interview with ABC’s Good Morning America, Garcetti attempted to clarify comments made by county public health director Barbara Ferrer that initially suggested the coronavirus lockdown would stretch into August.

Garcetti scolded residents telling them not to “overreact” to Ferrer’s comments, but added that L.A. would “never be completely open” until there is a vaccine for COVID-19.

“I think we have to all recognize that we’re not moving beyond COVID-19,” Garcetti exclaimed. “We’re learning to live with it.”

“We’ve never been fully closed, we’ll never be completely open until we have cure,” he said.

But even the left-wing media’s favorite doctor, Anthony Fauci, noted that there may never be am effective vaccine. “There’s no guarantee that the vaccine is actually going to be effective,” he said.

So, if Garcetti intends to shut down L.A. permanently, the city will be entirely destroyed.
