"Rittenhouse should have never been charged; Brooks should not have been out of jail."

Victor Davis Hanson writes about the Rittenhouse prosecutor,
The DA apparently wished to scare the jury into a guilty verdict through the sensation of having a rifle pointed at them. Given the jury appears post facto to have been made up of reasonable people, that puerile gambit probably backfired. All that the imbecilic DA confirmed by his actions was the same recklessness as those in state and city government who had permitted parts of Kenosha to burn in the first place.
There were lots of suicidal prosecutorial stunts such as these in what turned out to be a circus of sorts. The DAs also sought to deprecate the constitutionally protected Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. They bizarrely saw their key witness admitting under cross examination that he had first pointed a handgun at Kyle Rittenhouse who then understandably fired at him. And they deliberately released an inferior version of the video record of the shooting to the defense while keeping the superior one to their perceived advantage.
Not long after one Rittenhouse was acquitted, one Darrell Brooks, Jr., an African-American with a 20-year record of serious felonies, allegedly drove his car deliberately into a Christmas parade in Waukesha, killing 6 innocents and injuring over 60.
Finally, the news settled into the present narrative of a “car crash,”—as if a driverless vehicle on autopilot had simply bumped into various people in the street—before burying the murders altogether on their back pages and dropping the crime from the evening news. Or as the Washington Post put it, “Here’s what we know so far on the sequence of events that led to the Waukesha tragedy caused by a SUV.”
How a Wisconsin ex-felon received a $1,000 bail bond and freedom to mow down innocents, after trying to run down two with his car, while another juvenile without an arrest record, with good grounds to claim self-defense, was required to post a $2 million bond (and so stayed incarcerated pending charges without running water in his cell) is a commentary on the abject implosion of the American justice system.
Rittenhouse should have never been charged; Brooks should not have been out of jail. The effort to make the former a beneficiary of white supremacy and the latter a victim of it required a level of amoral media deceit that finally was unsustainable even in this bankrupt age.

"They lie until the lie doesn't work any more, then they move on to something else!"

An attack on free speech. Decent Americans who have a different opinion about the government have been treated like drug cartel leaders or serial killers! The government is punishing people, demonizing them and terrorizing them if they disagree with the government. Sending a message to others to do their dirty work for them! Intimidating and bullying people who went to protest. An insurrection without arms!

He knew us!

Just a normal day in Los Angeles!

For whomever is ready for some snow!

"Everybody just wants to be heard!"

Mark Steyn writes about the criminal responsible for the slaughter in Waukesha.
Those who look beyond America's corrupt media for the basic information will be aware that the man in custody is an "aspiring rapper" called Darrell Brooks Jr, or Jay Brooks, or MathBoi Fly, whose rap videos are already being scrubbed from social media. When he's not rapping, he's a career criminal with a rap sheet as long as the Waukesha parade: property destruction, battery, strangulation and suffocation; he's also a "registered sex offender". Two days before the attack, Mr Brooks was apparently released from jail by the Milwaukee County Attorney John Chisholm. His latest charges include domestic abuse, more battery, oh and felony bail jumping. So Mr Chisholm released him on $1,000 cash bail.
"They are going to be proven wrong, but they certainly have the right to speak their minds!" Those are the words of Jake Gardner, owner of a bar in Omaha. Gardner was interviewed at the inauguration of Donald Trump, and he said those words when asked by his interviewer about the "Women's March," which was taking place on the same day in which he was interviewed. Mark Steyn wrote this about Mr. Gardner in 2020.
Way back on May 30th, in that hinge moment of the year when spring turned to summer and lockdown turned to looting, Jake Gardner found a mob of "mostly peaceful protesters" being mostly peaceful about the death of George Floyd outside his bar, the Hive & Gatsby's, in downtown Omaha. His windows were broken, and his dad was getting shoved around. Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine, using the surveillance footage, walked his audience through the critical moments:
Gardner came up, asking, "Who did that? Who pushed my dad?" Someone was heard in the video saying, "he has a gun on him," referring to Gardner. Kleine draws attention to the fact that windows are seen broken out of the bar. Kleine said the video shows a group of people surrounding Gardner, tackling him and Gardner firing two warning shots. Kleine said Scurlock jumps on Gardner and and the bar owner fires another shot, fatally wounding Scurlock. Kleine said Gardner is heard saying, "Get off me, get off me, please get off me," before the final shot is fired.
The County Attorney's conclusion: Kleine said the determination has been made that the shooting was in self-defense.
That would appear to be correct as a point of law. But this is America in 2020, with an evil and politicized justice system. Protests continued and the weakling Kleine's worthless office came under pressure from #BlackLivesMatter - in particular an influential activist called JaKeen Fox who served on Omaha's LGBTQWERTY advisory board and enjoys a good cop killing. So a week later the County Attorney caved and washed his hands:

Florida Governor's wife is a fighter, like her husband!

Many of us have been impressed by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, but what do we know about his wife? The Epoch Times features her in this short video: https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_breakingnews/the-first-lady-of-florida_4113627.html?utm_source=etv_vids_rec&utm_medium=a_bottom_below_ai

The Bidens have been staying at a billionaire's home in Nantucket since Tuesday!

Thomas Lifson points out that the people who own the house where Jill and Joe Biden have been staying since Tuesday are traveling abroad!
The Rubenstein multi-billion-dollar fortune derives from David’s role as co-founder of The Carlyle Group, the second-largest private equity firm in the world, with assets in the hundreds of billions of dollars. Tellingly, Carlyle is headquartered in Washington, DC, not Wall Street, and Rubenstein himself was a White House official in the Carter administration before becoming a hedge fund guy. It sure looks like knowledge of and connections with the federal government play a role in guiding the superior insight necessary to capably invest such serious sums of money.
Yet, I have not been able to discover any media coverage of the inherently questionable practice of accepting a lavish gift like this from a financial markets insider while serving as President of the United States. Most people, who read the headlines and may skim the first paragraph, have the assumption that the Bidens and Rubensteins are sitting before a crackling fire talking about the grandkids.

Biden’s Bounty on Your Life: Hospitals’ Incentive Payments for COVID-19

Elizabeth Lee Vliet, M.D. and Ali Shultz, J.D.report,
There are deaths from the government-directed COVID treatments. For remdesivir, studies show that 71–75 percent of patients suffer an adverse effect, and the drug often had to be stopped after five to ten days because of these effects, such as kidney and liver damage, and death. Remdesivir trials during the 2018 West African Ebola outbreak had to be discontinued because death rate exceeded 50%. Yet, in 2020, Anthony Fauci directed that remdesivir was to be the drug hospitals use to treat COVID-19, even when the COVID clinical trials of remdesivir showed similar adverse effects.
In ventilated patients, the death toll is staggering. A National Library of Medicine January 2021 report of 69 studies involving more than 57,000 patients concluded that fatality rates were 45 percent in COVID-19 patients receiving invasive mechanical ventilation, increasing to 84 percent in older patients. Renz announced at a Truth for Health Foundation Press Conference that CMS data showed that in Texas hospitals, 84.9% percent of all patients died after more than 96 hours on a ventilator.
Then there are deaths from restrictions on effective treatments for hospitalized patients. Renz and a team of data analysts have estimated that more than 800,000 deaths in America’s hospitals, in COVID-19 and other patients, have been caused by approaches restricting fluids, nutrition, antibiotics, effective antivirals, anti-inflammatories, and therapeutic doses of anti-coagulants.
We now see government-dictated medical care at its worst in our history since the federal government mandated these ineffective and dangerous treatments for COVID-19, and then created financial incentives for hospitals and doctors to use only those “approved” (and paid for) approaches.
Our formerly trusted medical community of hospitals and hospital-employed medical staff have effectively become “bounty hunters” for your life. Patients need to now take unprecedented steps to avoid going into the hospital for COVID-19. Patients need to take active steps to plan before getting sick to use early home-based treatment of COVID-19 that can help you save your life.

"He is now free to axe his way to a better world."

Jonathan Turley reports,
Thomas “Tas” Alexander Starks, 31, of Lisbon, N.D., faced a strikingly different approach by the Justice Department. The self-avowed Antifa member took an axe to the office of Sen. John Hoeven’s in Fargo on Dec. 21, 2020. Federal sentencing guidelines suggested 10–16 months in prison but he was only sentenced to probation and fined $2,784 for restitution . . . he then reportedly mocked the FBI for returning his axe. Others declared him a hero and Democratic politicians pitched in for his legal defense.

Is the U.S. dependent on China, or is China dependent on the U.S.?

Sundance writes,
Donald Trump saw China as the dependent nation in the geopolitical game of economics. Beijing needed access to our markets more than we needed the Chinese products; and Trump treated them that way. However, JoeBama sees the U.S. economy as dependent on China, and from that perspective Xi Jinping has the leverage.
Biden will acquiesce to the demands of the panda mask, and the red dragon wants the Trump tariffs removed. Team Xi will now hint that supply chains might speed up again if Trump era tariffs are removed, and Biden will give in because all his policies make him the dependent.

With all due respect!

Is half the country losing faith in the pillars of American civilization?

Victor Davis Hanson writes,
For the first time in memory, conservatives now connect the FBI hierarchy with bureaucratic bloat, political bias, and even illegality. In the last five years, the FBI was mostly in the news for the checkered careers of James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Robert Mueller, Lisa Page, and Peter Strzok. Add in the criminality of convicted FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith.
Prior heads of the CIA and FBI, as well as the director of national intelligence, have at times either not told the truth under oath or claimed amnesia, without legal repercussions.
Mention the military to conservative Americans these days, and they unfortunately associate its leadership with the disastrous flight from Afghanistan. Few, if any, high-ranking officers have yet taken responsibility—much less resigned—for the worst military fiasco of the last half-century.
Never in U.S. history have so many retired four-star admirals and generals disparaged their president with charges of being either a traitor, a liar, a fascist, or a virtual Nazi, as occurred during the last administration.
Never has the secretary of defense promised he would ferret out alleged “white supremacists,” without providing any evidence whatsoever of their supposedly ubiquitous presence and dangerous conspiracies.
Conservatives now have lost their former traditional confidence in the administration of justice, in the intelligence and investigatory agencies, in the nation’s military leadership, in the media, and the criminal justice system.
No one yet knows what the effect will be of half the country losing faith in the very pillars of American civilization.

Providing treatment that actually works!

Andrew Mark Miller reports,
Florida is reporting the lowest amount of coronavirus cases per capita in the nation after Gov. Ron DeSantis was widely criticized by media outlets for his handling of the virus. The Sunshine State reported a daily average of 1,393 coronavirus cases as of Friday, six per 100,000, which was a two percent decrease over the last two weeks.
At the same time Florida reported the lowest amount of new cases in the country per capita, coronavirus cases are surging in many states where strict lockdown orders were issued by Democratic governors. Michigan, where Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer imposed some of the most controversial restrictions in the nation during the height of the pandemic, leads the nation in daily coronavirus cases per capita.
"It just shows once again the success of Governor DeSantis’s science based and data based policies," DeSantis Press Secretary Christina Pushaw told Fox News Digital about the case levels in Florida. "He’s always made decisions based on the data and that continued even during the Delta surge this summer what he realized would help was not mask mandates in school or lockdowns but provide treatment that actually works."
"He opened the 25 state-supported monoclonal antibody sites and provided that treatment all over the state free of charge to over 150,000 Floridians, saved thousands of lives, and that happened starting in August," Pushaw added. "Since then our cases are down by over 95% with no restrictions on people's freedom."

The battle lines are clear: on one side, the Biden administration, public school bureaucrats, and their armed agents; on the other, parents and families who oppose school closures, mask mandates, critical race theory and corruption. Public school officials have demonstrated a willingness to use police power to silence and intimidate their opponents.

What elephant?

Jonathan Turley writes,
Even with the New York Times reporting on the story, the disclosure of Hunter Biden’s role in securing one of the world’s largest cobalt mines for China (a key component to electric battery production) has been ignored by the major networks and many other print outlets. Once again, ABC. NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, and other media just cannot see the elephant.
Finally, there is the fact that this windfall from the Chinese occurred in a field that Hunter Biden knew nothing about (much like his work on the board of the Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma) and he was, by his own description, a hopeless addict. In his recent book, Hunter admits that he was a crack addict and alcoholic all the way up to the start of his father’s presidential campaign — in his words, “Drinking a quart of vodka a day by yourself in a room is absolutely, completely debilitating,” as well as “smoking crack around the clock.”
The Tenke Fungurume mine was considered a human rights nightmare. The Congolese military reportedly reduced workers to virtual slaves, torched homes, and killed dissenters. Amnesty International spokeswoman Sarah Jackson denounced “the long history of excessive use of force … unlawful killings.”
None of these facts, however, can force the media to see the elephant. The key to the trick was involving the media in the original trick is that it invests reporters in the illusion. It is like calling audience members to the stage to assist in the performance. Reporters have to insist that there was nothing to see or they have to admit to being part of the original deception. The media cannot see the elephant without the public seeing something about the media in its past efforts to conceal it.

New information about Hunter Biden corruption

Dov Fischer writes,
When we all learned of Hunter Biden’s $50,000-a-month Burisma position, sitting on the board of directors of a Ukrainian energy company, the decades of schemes finally become impossible to overlook. Hunter knew nothing about Ukraine nor about energy, but there he was on their board while Daddy was vice president of the United States, assigned as Obama’s point man on all things Ukrainian.
We now learn that Hunter Biden co-started an investment firm, and that company helped China get a $3.8 billion cobalt mine — while Daddy Joe was Obama’s vice president. According to the New York Times, Hunter Biden launched Bohai Harvest RST (BHR) Equity Investment Fund Management Company with two other Americans and some Chinese partners in 2013. They then worked to help China Molybdenum purchase a Congo cobalt and copper mine for $2.65 billion. BHR held a minority stake in the mine and sold it two years later to China Molybdenum. Through it all, Hunter controlled 10 percent of BHR. While a Hunter spokesman denied his having a connection, Fox News reported they reviewed Chinese business records proving that Hunter continued holding a 10 percent portion in BHR through Skaneateles LLC, another Hunter company.

Weaponizing the criminal justice system

Miranda Devine writes,
Six people would still be alive if Milwaukee had not been hijacked by progressive prosecutors.
“The Milwaukee experiment,” it was called in a gushing Jeffrey Toobin article in the New Yorker in 2015, praising Milwaukee’s Democratic DA John Chisholm.
Elected in 2006, Chisholm is a leading light of the progressive prosecutor movement.
His office let out Brooks on $1,000 bail Nov. 16, after he allegedly punched his girlfriend in the face and deliberately ran over her with the SUV he allegedly used in Sunday’s attack. Brooks’ criminal record is over 50 pages long.
Progressive criminal-justice reforms are not about equal justice. When it comes to Trump supporters, such as Kyle Rittenhouse or the Jan. 6 defendants still in pretrial detention in a DC jail, progressives are viciously punitive.
They are weaponizing the criminal-justice system to terrorize their ideological opponents and create mayhem.
This is a revolution, and we will all be its victims unless we wake up.

JB's checkup

Kunstler writes,
Why the visit to Walter Reed Hospital? Did Joe Biden have an adverse reaction to a Covid-19 booster shot?
Of course, if it turned out that “Joe Biden” presented symptoms of an adverse reaction to his Covid booster shot, that might flip the government’s claim that the mRNA vaccines are harmless. It might actually blow away the entire rationale for pushing the American people around over all things Covid. It would drive a stake through the heart of the CDC and end the career of Dr. Anthony Fauci. It would end all the efforts to destroy small business and public school in the USA. It would also prompt severe reactions from the citizens in other advanced nations — especially among what is called the West — and put a stop to their lockdowns, health passports, and proposals for mandatory vaccinations.
So, you see, whatever might be going on with “Joe Biden” health-wise has got to be a national security matter. And so, considering that our government lies liberally about thousands of other matters of lesser importance, one can see that they would be motivated to not tell the truth about “JB’s” checkup.

Is a second Trump term needed in order to correct the mistakes of the first?

David Solway writes that a second Trump term might be needed in order to correct the mistakes of the first What were his major mistakes?
First, it appears in retrospect that he did not recognize how deep the Deep State was and how fetid and vast the political swamp. To his credit, he made a heroic effort to “drain the swamp” but managed only to filter out the surface scum. His adversaries were legion and merciless.
But one wonders if Trump had acted more decisively, had used the instrument of Executive Action more effectively, had been more suspicious of his putative allies and less concerned with legislative decorum, had fully realized that the Left was not a political consortium or Party but a dedicated enemy more dangerous to the integrity of the nation than North Korea, Iran and Communist China put together, and had acted as Lincoln did in a time no less fraught than the present — one wonders if the outcome might have been different.
Perhaps this was too much to expect of a single individual, especially a president who had almost every news outlet, digital platform, congressional majority, administrative cohort, woke mob and federal agency poised to overthrow him.
Secondly, Trump was the prime mover of Operation Warp Speed, a project to produce and rush the COVID-19 vaccines to market in record time. “That means big and it means fast,” Trump said, “A massive scientific and industrial, logistic endeavor unlike anything our country has seen since the Manhattan Project.” The issue is obviously complicated, involving internal disputes, competing claims for credit, persistent backbiting, the facepalming of the president by his own people, and the dubious input from medical personnel (also members of the swamp), but Trump fully believed, no doubt spurred by medical counsel from his own trusted specialists, that Big Pharma was the answer to the pandemic. Trump did, in fact, suggest the effectiveness of a therapeutic drug like Hydroxychloroquine, but unwisely relented after a disingenuous and adverse media and medical barrage against its use.
The dilemma and confusion we are experiencing today, the mask mandates and lockdowns, the conflicting results from the vaccines, the breakthroughs and variants, the collapse of the economy, the institution of vaxxports, and the profound and destabilizing divisions among the public are owing at least in part to Trump’s untutored enthusiasm for a solution that is clearly problematic and that has polarized an entire country. Again, Trump was not wholly at fault for the debacle. His intentions were good, he was often misadvised by those he trusted, and he certainly did not have the leisure for independent research or consultation with the best and most reputable epidemiologists in the collegiate forum. Nevertheless, it was a failure of perception and a lapse of due diligence to which we conceivably owe the traumatic situation in which we now find ourselves.
As every honest bio-specialist knows, it is inadvisable, indeed, it is arguably dangerous, to “warp speed” a vaccine, especially one that relies, in its current targeted application, on an unprecedented form of gene therapy. Reliable vaccines require five to twelve years of longitudinal trials and mRNA vaccines are not really vaccines in the usual sense of the term but genetic delivery systems. Trump should have known this — or at least, might have been aware of the devil in the details had he not placed his confidence in medical bureaucrats like Drs. Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx. Suspicion, not trust, was the proper attitude to adopt, despite the sense of overwhelming crisis.
In any event, one may hope for Trump’s return to the presidential sweepstakes in 2024, battle tested-and-hardened, with a better knowledge of the political snake pit, less prone to give credence to questionable advisors, ready to take arms against a fraudulent media apparatus, indifferent to the seductions of a glitzy presidential curatorship, and willing to assume a Lincolnesque determination to fight the country’s domestic enemies tooth and nail. It’s a tall order, but a second term is needed to correct the mistakes of the first.

"There is an easy and cheap way out of the huge economic issue of high fuel prices, and it isn't dipping into emergency supplies of oil!"

CBD writes,
So pumping petroleum out of the ground from wells is beyond the pale because CLIMATECHANGE! And moving low-cost petroleum from Canada through safe pipelines is a crime against humanity? But pumping it out of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve is just A OK? The reserve that is intended to provide petroleum during national crises like war and natural disasters? Not man-made price dislocations caused by a profoundly stupid and malign political philosophy!
Of course that political philosophy is socialism. Let us not pretend that the attempted destruction of domestic oil production is anything other than part of the long march, in which petroleum -- a product inextricably linked with American independence and individualism -- is demonized and made scarce. It will also create economic shocks that are profound; driving people into the cities where transportation is subsidized and, at least on the surface, cheaper than burning expensive fuel in one's own car.
The logical disconnect is obvious, yet our media are marching in lockstep with the Democrat party in support of restrictions that do absolutely nothing other than increase the price of energy in America. We're still burning it...it just costs more. Fuel has an inelastic demand curve...it has to get extremely expensive before people start decreasing their usage. But they reduce their demand for other goods, and that damages growth. Which is the point.
It's also amazingly stupid, and maybe the American public, which has been asleep for generations, will finally notice that there is an easy and cheap way out of the huge economic issue of high fuel prices, and it isn't dipping into emergency supplies of oil!
Open the Keystone pipeline, sell oil leases, remove restrictions on fracking, and we will once again be net exporters of oil. It won't take long.

Is there a new blue Confederacy?

Victor Davis Hanson writes,
People are fleeing the bright lights and supposed cultural dynamism of old New York and Chicago and “enlightened” newer cities such as Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Fairly or not, America’s 19th- and early 20th-century reputation for greater freedom of thought and equal opportunity were mostly identified with large bustling cities like Boston, Chicago, Detroit, New York, and their western clones such as Denver, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle.
But ask yourself—which cities today are most likely associated with lawless district attorneys who, as tribal bosses, ignore statutes and who indict or exempt criminals on personal and ideological whims? Where are crime rates most spiraling? Where is the greatest racial unrest? And where are the most homeless?
The best example of the great reversal is the stark contrast between the Bay Area of California and Austin or Dallas. A near-majority of Bay Area residents expresses a desire to leave the state.
Silicon Valley emulates the power of old King Cotton—a monopoly that owns state government, one that destroys competition, censors, and smears its critics, and pours its money into elections not just to choose obsequious candidates, but to alter the very systems of balloting to ensure proper results. Like the “good ol’ boy” Old South, California is a one-party, boss-man state. Democrats, in Southern fashion, control all statewide offices, supermajorities in both houses of the legislature, and 75 percent of the congressional delegation.

First, Do No Harm!"

Muldoon, a physician with 35 years experience, asks,
Why are physicians who recommend ivermectin vilified and politicians and bureaucrats who push a new vaccine technology with an as yet uncertain safety profile praised?
In a context of "first, do no harm", a physician acting in good faith ought to be able to prescribe a medication that in their best medical judgment is safe and may have some effectiveness, until such time as it is shown to cause harm. The FDA's own webpage "Why You Should Not Use Ivermectin to Treat or Prevent COVID-19" does not cite any harm from appropriate doses of human forms of ivermectin, rather it focuses on overdosing of the veterinary forms in individuals who self-administer, and scant evidence of any widespread adverse effects even at that.
Secondly, in a framework of the basic rights of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness", a patient by rights should retain the autonomy to apply their conscience in making their own health care decisions. Yet here we are, in a circumstance where politicians are threatening individuals' liberty and pursuit of happiness on the vague and as yet unproven notion that vaccine mandates, as Surgeon General Vivek Murthy put it, "...our pathway out of the pandemic”. This is a vain hope at best. That "science" most certainly is NOT settled, as natural immunity, cross-immunity and mutation of the virus to more benign forms are all contributors.
Perhaps I'm just a dinosaur, but I believe the precepts of Primum Non Nocere and inalienable rights endowed by our Creator are every bit as valid now as they were when first put forth. I commend those in the medical community who have followed their conscience in advocating for individual rights, at risk to their own livelihood. And I call on the rest of the medical community to wake up and realize where their loyalty ultimately lies. Physicians should actively push back when a third party (employer, government) seeks to inject themselves into the relationship between doctor and patient or to supersede it entirely. They should rededicate themselves to a duty to individual patients rather than a 'greater' public good. Let us rekindle a spirit of "First, Do No Harm".

The political science is committed to the vaccine approach!

Sundance writes,
the baseline fact is that more people are presumably dying now with/from the virus -while the vaccine is in place- than were dying with/from the virus before the vaccine was introduced. Meanwhile, the Fauci, CDC, NIH solution is to vaccinate more… vaccinate harder… vaccine boosters for everyone. The political science is committed to the vaccine approach.

F.B.I. uses battering ram to break down the door of suburban mom who spoke out against school masks, teaching critical race theory, and election irregularities!ing critical race theory and

Leo Holmann writes,
The U.S. Department of Justice and Attorney General Merrick Garland issued an Oct. 4 memorandum directing federal, state and local law enforcement to look for parents to prosecute nationwide who may have made "threats" and made "harassing" phone calls to school board members nationwide, equating such parents to domestic terrorists.
Now a mother, Sheronna Bishop of Grand Junction, Colorado, has felt the brute force of the FBI's heavily armed SWAT unit used against her family. She was at home with her three children Tuesday morning when she heard someone pounding on the front door. She said the officers "manhandled" her 18-year-old daughter, pulling her up the stairs by her hoodie, while another officer put her in handcuffs. They proceeded to search the entire house.
"This is still the United States of America, where we are able to state what we think and we believe," she told Howse. "There was some pounding on my door. I didn't really know what to think, I thought at first it might be some neighbor kids. They were pounding profusely, and then it hit me it was the FBI. I took my kids to their bedrooms. They used a battering ram to bash down my door, they cuffed me. And then proceeded to search and go through my whole home."
"I don't know anything about this. They couldn't explain any of this," she said. "I will tell you why: they were at my home to intimidate me, to shut me up, because I was using my First Amendment rights to advocate for [Mesa County Clerk] Tina Peters on the issue of Dominion [voting machines] and the damage done in our election. And they'll never be held accountable. Instead they will criminalize this woman who has stood up."
Bishop has been part of a group of parents that have been successful in fighting the teaching of critical race theory and school mask mandates.
Now, an activist mom has been targeted, raising the question: Has the FBI become the political shock troops for the White House, seeking to harass and intimidate anyone who speaks out against its policies?

How the F.B.I. tried to entrap the Trump campaign

John D. O’Connor is a former federal prosecutor and the San Francisco attorney who represented W. Mark Felt during his revelation as Deep Throat in 2005. O’Connor is the author of Postgate: How the Washington Post Betrayed Deep Throat, Covered Up Watergate, and Began Today’s Partisan Advocacy Journalism. He writes,
If we are correct, the FBI was entrapping the Trump campaign, falsely giving information to the FISA court and Congress, compromising the media, and lying to the American people. Yes, Clinton, through Steele, was lying to the FBI. But the FBI itself, to this day, has been lying about Sergei Millian, concealing the FBI’s role in a sickening takedown of a presidential campaign and later a president.

The Biden Administration is selling off America's Strategic Petroleum Reserve to Asia!

Andrea Widburg writes,
It's no secret that Americans are paying record prices at the gas pumps. Rapidly ascending prices also affect the cost of all the goods and services that are an integral part of the American economy. Farmers, manufacturers, delivery companies, repair people...you name it: they're paying more to do their jobs, and they're passing those costs to consumers. So why now, of all times, is the Biden administration selling off America's Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) to Asia?
As the name suggests, the SPR is America's emergency backup supply of oil. The reason we have it is because of the energy crisis in the early 1970s. According to Wikipedia, which is probably accurate about this, "[t]he United States started the petroleum reserve in 1975 after oil supplies were interrupted during the 1973–1974 oil embargo, to mitigate future supply disruptions."
Fast-forward to 2021. Upon entering the Oval Office, one of the first things Biden did was to shut down the Keystone XL pipeline. Henceforth, rather than flowing safely through a pipeline, Canadian oil will come the expensive way, over land, whether in trucks (which are in short supply) or on trains.
At the same time, Biden halted new oil, gas, and coal leases on federal lands, something that's being fought in the courts. As long as the suit continues, no sane business would start to drill.
Biden's also on the verge of ending all new oil and gas leases around major Native American cultural sites, which will shut down massive amounts of exploration and drilling in New Mexico. And following initial denials, the administration admitted that it plans to close a major Michigan pipeline.
Biden is now under pressure to tap the SPR to relieve some of the pressure on fuel prices. (Again, remember that Biden birthed this problem by squashing American fuel production, thereby creating the shortage. There's also the little matter of his administration working with Congress to print money like rolls of toilet paper — except that toilet paper is more useful than inflationary dollars.) Even Chuckie Schumer wants to lower prices by chipping away at our SPR emergency supply, despite our having vast, untapped resources beneath American land.
It turns out that Biden is already tapping into the SPR; he's just not doing it to help Americans. A report in investment circles is finally trickling down into the mainstream news: Biden is selling massive amounts of SPR oil...to Asia! According to Bloomberg/Quint: About 1.6 million barrels of crude from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve — a monthly record — was shipped out in October, according to data from market intelligence firm Kpler.
All three supertankers went to Asia. "Given the ongoing pace of the current SPR release — 12 million barrels in the last two months and the biggest weekly release so far last week at 3.1 million barrels — it's fair to assume more SPR barrels are going to leave U.S. shores in the weeks ahead," said Matt Smith, an oil analyst at Kpler. As far as I can tell, the administration has not explained why, with Americans struggling to keep up with rising fuel prices, it's shipping our SPR to Asia. During the virtual meeting between Biden and Xi Jinping, the two men allegedly discussed releasing oil from both countries' petroleum reserves but made no mention of the sales to Asia that already took place.

How can the F.B.I. be salvaged?

Victor Davis Hanson lists many, many bad things that have been done by F.B.I. agents over the last six years. What is his suggested remedy? "For its own moral and practical survival, the FBI should be given one last chance at redemption by moving to the nation’s heartland—perhaps Kansas—far away from the political and media tentacles that have so deeply squeezed and corrupted it. https://amgreatness.com/2021/11/17/can-the-fbi-be-salvaged/ J.J. Sefton does not agree.
The ascendancy of Donald Trump did not lead to that agency's corruption. The problem is the FBI has always been a corrupt, highly politicized institution that, like every other bureaucracy, has one and only one mission: perpetual growth and the accrual of more power. It's actions in taking an active role in sabotaging his campaign, his presidency, and then his re-election bid were standard operating procedure that his mere presence revealed. That said, no other GOP or rare conservative president ever was an existential threat to the agency or to the globalist enterprise it defended. Trump was and so they, along with every other bureaucracy were forced to go nuclear on him, and of course on all of us who elected him, thereby revealing for all who have eyes to see the sham/illusion of two-party electoral politics as it was.
Psaki-Psircling back to VDH, he too seems to be clinging to the illusion of business as usual, despite all the evidence piling up like container ships off his beloved California coast, or more unambiguously bloodied and battered citizens like Roseanne Boyland outside of Steny Hoyer's office last January 6th. The belief that there is even the remotest possibility of moving the FBI to Kansas let alone that doing so will cure it of its ills is risible. If, as blinkered buffoon Andy McCarthy insists, there are good and decent people still working at that agency, then the only thing that will "fix" the FBI and the DOJ for that matter is if these masses of decent agents, with Mr. McCarthy leading the way, grab Moloch Garland, Fey Wray and the upper leadership echelons of both, arrest them and toss them in the same DC lockup where so many actually decent Americans are being imprisoned while liberating these martyrs from their illegal confinement. Liberate Kyle Rittenhouse and Derek Chauvin as well.

More thoughts on the Rittenhouse trial

William Jacobson states,
If you can’t defend yourself when someone’s beating you in the head with the skateboard, if you can’t defend yourself when they’re running at you while you’re on the ground and they lower their Glock pistol towards your head from three feet away, if you can’t defend yourself when someone who’s already that night threatened to kill you, if he caught you alone, and is now reaching for your gun, if you can’t defend yourself in those circumstances and the full weight of the state and the full weight of the media is going to come down on you, then we are in a really bad place.
This is about citizens not being able to defend themselves because the police are nowhere to be found. They were nowhere to be found during the rioting in Kenosha. They were on the edges. Everybody was left for themselves, and there were violent, violent people like this multiple child rapist Joseph Rosenbaum who got shot when he tried to grab Kyle Rittenhouse’s gun, this violent, violent person who has a long criminal history and was out looking to beat people that night. So those people are allowed to run the street and those people won’t be arrested. But somebody who defends themselves against those criminals is going to get arrested.

Rittenhouse has been charged with First Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety of the man known in trial only as 'jump-kick man,' for the flying kick he took at the teenager's head as Rittenhouse was attacked minutes after he shot Joseph Rosenbaum dead.

(although giving up the Education Establishment might be even bigger)
Oregon Muse writes this morning,
A lot of this is our fault. Because back in the day, our parents watched news footage of hippies throwing rocks at buildings and Black Panthers walking up and down carrying weapons and thought "oh no, we can't have this" and voted for every "law and order" bill that was placed before them. Pansy-ass liberal judges who let dangerous felons walk also contributed to this reaction. This resulted in longer prison sentences and mandatory prison sentences, and "three strikes" laws. And created a new breed of hyper-aggressive prosecutor who will go to any length to put somebody behind bars
Put another way, we played a big role in creating the weapons the left is now using against us.
We didn't notice that these new measures were giving more and more power to government officials along increasing danger of potential abuse. We also should have heeding the warnings about the PATRIOT Act, but 9/11 was still a raw memory and we were in no mood to listen to objections. We never thought that someone would ever say "Terrorists, you say? Hey, then this would apply to domestic terrorists, too, wouldn't it?"
No, I haven't forgotten the War on Drugs. It's very much like the War on Terror: ill-conceived, never-ending, expensive, and ultimately futile.
Time was that the right was all about law and order and the left about civil rights. It's funny how we seemed to have switched places.

Jury intimidation

Sundance reports,
While the FBI is supporting the activity of Antifa, according to local media, 500 national guard members are on standby to protect the city from them and the Black Lives Matter mobs. The Rittenhouse trial sets the stage for an interesting conflict between the FBI jackboots and the Wisconsin National Guard.
It is interesting how the city of Kenosha did not form a perimeter around the courthouse keeping the mob away from the steps. There is a park across the street which was previously used for protests as the police guarded the building. However, today, for some seemingly curious reason, the local authorities are allowing the protesting mob and their bullhorns to conduct their agitation activity on the steps to the courthouse.
Commentor J. Brown wrote,
How bizarre that BLM is covering this trial, rather than the Arbery trial which actually encompasses a black vs white situation. Of course, what this actually tells you is that BLM and Antifa are little more than paid operatives and followers. The Rittenhouse trial has nothing to do with racial issues, and EVERYTHING to do with self defense and the Second Amendment. Why would BLM and Antifa care about these issues? They don’t, of course. They are just lackies for political operatives who wish to disarm the US. Period

Jury asks Rittenhouse to protect the courthouse!

The Babylon Bee satirically informs us,
KENOSHA, WI—Moments before reading the verdict, the twelve jurors in the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse asked if the defendant would please step outside and defend the courthouse.
“We, the jury will perform our constitutional duty and declare the verdict in this case,” said one sweating juror, “But we, the jury also don’t want to die.”
“Objection, your honor, Rittenhouse does not possess an AR-15 to defend the courthouse; I have the AR-15,” said the prosecutor, swinging the weapon wildly about as onlookers nervously ducked behind benches. “Besides, protestors are heroes, people of upstanding character, and victims.”
Judge Schroeder ruled the prosecutor a doofus and allowed Rittenhouse to disarm the blubbering liar, load his weapon, and position himself defensively on the steps of the courthouse while the verdict was read. Witnesses claim even the prosecution team was relieved to know Kyle Rittenhouse was out there protecting them.

Judge instructs the jury to ignore the mob outside!

Time now for some Babylon Bee satire:
KENOSHA, WI—With closing arguments completed in the Kyle Rittenhouse case, the judge is now giving the jury their instructions before they deliberate, reminding them to ignore the angry mob that is currently outside threatening to burn the whole building down.
"Please be fair and impartial," he said to the jurists, who were all wearing Kevlar helmets and body armor. "Just ignore the bloodthirsty mob of communists threatening to terrorize you and your family forever if you don't find Rittenhouse 'guilty'. That should not factor into your decision at all."
"Guilty or we burn it down! Guilty or we burn it down!" replied the mob outside, furious that they were being ignored.
The jurists have asked for a 20-minute head-start to get in their cars and drive to the nearest bomb shelter before the verdict is revealed. They have also asked for 24/7 armed security provided by Kyle Rittenhouse.

One NBA player is standing up to Communist China's numerous human rights abuses

Lindell Lucy brings to our attention the plight of NBA player Enes Kantor. Kantor has stood up to human rights violators in his home country of Turkey, and now is standing up to Communist China because of their numerous human rights abuses.
China’s authoritarian government should not be allowed to buy the NBA’s silence, and the NBA should not be complicit in a CCP-orchestrated attack on the career of one of its players — a naked attempt to undermine free speech and cover up its ongoing industrial-scale human rights abuses.
The NBA consequently faces a moral dilemma. It can quietly take China’s money and throw Kanter under the bus (along with Taiwanese, Tibetans, Hongkongers, and Uyghurs), or it can stand in solidarity with Kanter by expressing robust support for human rights, democracy, and freedom of speech — including for people who live under the shadow of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

Civil asset forfeiture

Oregon Muse writes,
I don't understand legal reasoning. Or, perhaps I should say, I don't understand certain aspects about American jurisprudence. For example, civil asset forfeiture. How did that ever become a thing? "Sir, you're under arrest for blah blah blah and therefore we get to take everything we think is connected with your criminal activity, which, whoopsie, is pretty much everything you own. Too bad. We'll decide later if we want to actually charge you with a crime. Meanwhile, good luck trying to get your property back."
How did that ever pass constitutional muster? I thought "no person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process" was a bedrock principal of our system of government. So how is it 'due process' when your property becomes forfeit just because some LE agency decides to raid your house?

The worst defense in the world!

Ace of Spades believes Kyle Rittenhouse has the worst defense in the world!
They have constantly allowed Litttlefinger to act as his own "expert witness" and testify as a prosecutor. An expert has to be voir dire'd, to establish his expert status. Littlefinger has none. The defense never objects. Never. Ever. Never ever ever.
They just let him testify and testify to things never entered into evidence, acting as an expert witness who was never established as such.
They let him testify earlier that "you cannot fire a gun with your bicep blown off." So now he's a medical doctor.
Littlefinger is whatever sort of expert he needs to be at any particular moment, and the defense just sits there in silent stupidity.

Will this be the end of self-defense in Wisconsin?

The New Neo reports,
Governor Evers of Wisconsin has authorized 500 Wisconsin National Guard troops in anticipation of the Rittenhouse verdict.
You could say this was prudent, because if there is anything less than a conviction on the most serious charges, riots have been promised. You could also say – and you’d be correct – that this is just another element of the case that will tend to intimidate the jury from rendering a “not guilty” verdict. I would add that in my opinion this jury should have been sequestered, because all of this could have easily been foreseen. But I’m not even sure that the defense asked for that, and at any rate it was not done.
What’s more, irony abounds. Evers didn’t see fit to call the Guard when the Kenosha riots occurred, but he should have. And that’s not just 20/20 hindsight; it was quite obvious at the time. If he had done so, it is highly likely that Rosenbaum and Huber would still be alive, Grosskreutz would have retained his biceps, and Kyle Rittenhouse’s entire future wouldn’t be in jeopardy. There were so many points along the way when authorities made the wrong decisions, and I don’t think it was mere incompetence, I think it was a combination of cowardice and leftist ideology, with sometimes one predominating and sometimes the other.

A legal loophole known as a trial!

From the Babylon Bee:
KENOSHA, WI—Leftists are sounding the alarm that Kyle Rittenhouse—a notorious slayer of white communist pedophiles—may escape punishment through a little-known legal loophole known as a "trial."
"This is very concerning," said Chip Cordray, progressive legal expert covering the case. "Using this obscure loophole, Rittenhouse's fate will be decided by an impartial jury of peers based on evidence, rather than the whims of noble communist revolutionaries on Twitter—such as Bette Midler and Joe Biden."
Experts confirm that if Rittenhouse is found "not guilty," liberals won't be getting their way, which could lead to massive temper-tantrums, such as arson and looting.
"We can't let this happen," said Cordray. "It's time to talk about closing the 'trial' loophole so that justice can be done according to the whims of the leftist mob, as our founding fathers intended."

A time for scrubbing!

Sundance does his usual superb job reporting on media and F.B.I. corruption.
John Durham is providing evidence {Go Deep} showing how the “Trump-Russia” collusion story was created by Hillary Clinton and Democrat operatives like Dan Jones, Charles Dolan, Glenn Simpson and contracted operatives within Fusion-GPS; who then laundered their fake stories to Christopher Steele and his source Igor Danchenko for distribution to the FBI; and who then leaked the information to awaiting allies in the media. Those same media recipients are now scrubbing their participation:

Rittenhouse closing arguments Monday

Ace of Spades on the Rittenhouse trial:
The court ends its day. Closing arguments Monday and the case goes to the jury. I didn't listen closely to jury instructions, but based on what I did hear from the Rekieta crew, it was a very dark day, with the judge constantly rolling over for the prosecution and agreeing to a set of instructions that is almost guaranteed to send Kyle Rittenhouse to jail for a long time, if not for his entire life.
People laugh at the media for getting things wrong. But they get things wrong intentionally -- for example, to pressure a judge to start "getting things right" from their perspective. The trial is supposed to come out guilty and they won't tell people why it might not come out guilty so if it comes out not guilty there will be riots, and it must be the judge's fault there were riots. And weak men roll over for the media's battlespace preparation, not wanting to be snubbed in their social circles for causing antifa and BLM to so-understandably commit First Amendment arson and so-peacefully riot.

China's future of demographic decline

John Hayward reports,
The Chinese government has grown concerned about falling birth rates and demographic decline over the past few years, but according to independent demographer He Yafu, China may have already encountered negative population growth this year.
Chinese officials are willing to admit they have a big problem with demographics, but they are reluctant to concede the ruthless population control measures of the past 40 years were a mistake, and even more reluctant to admit their demographic decline might pose a severe risk to the Chinese economy in the near future.
“Data showed a fertility rate of 1.3 children per woman for 2020 alone, on par with ageing societies like Japan and Italy. The shrill alarm for China’s policymakers is that the world’s second-biggest economy may already be in irreversible population decline without having first accumulated the household wealth of G7 nations,” Reuters noted in May, when the lowest Chinese birth rates since the 1950s were recorded.

"If a baby is human enough to be sold for body parts for experimentation, he or she is human enough to be protected by law."

Remember David Daileden? He writes,
I started the Center for Medical Progress as a nonprofit investigative reporting and citizen journalism organization to monitor and report on bioethical issues that impact human dignity. My work is best known for the 2015 undercover video series which documented Planned Parenthood’s highest-level leadership callously negotiating the harvesting and sale of aborted fetal body parts. This reporting exposed illegal transfers of aborted human fetal tissue in violation of 42 U.S.C. § 289g-2. It involved coercion and abuse of pregnant patients through violations of informed consent laws, the use of illegal partial-birth abortions, and even infanticide in the trafficking of later gestation human fetuses for experimental use.
Meanwhile, as attorney general of California, Vice President Kamala Harris had my home raided to seize the videos, my means of publishing, and my attorney-client privileged communications — all of which her office appears to have immediately turned over to Planned Parenthood and NAF to help them win their civil lawsuits.
...But the more we learn, it increasingly seems like Planned Parenthood, NAF, and Kamala Harris’ abuses of power were not just about silencing me. They were also about obstruction of justice in fetal trafficking crimes.

Through the roof

Dov Fischer writes,
Now the idiots who wanted him as their president see what the other half of us saw before the election: the Democrats would screw up a good thing, would turn the order at the border into chaos, would weaken law enforcement and police backing, would continue exacerbating race relations in a country where there was no institutional race problem, would mess up our foreign standing, and would drive the economy into a mess.
So this is where America now is. Violent crime soaring. Critical Race Theory and transgender bathrooms in the schools. An economy out of control. Foreign policy chaos like the Afghanistan evacuation. Utter anarchy at the Mexican border. America’s troubles today are self-inflicted. Jimmy Carter told us forty years ago that our day had ended. Ronald Reagan then restored morning in America. Biden and Pelosi have brought us back to the Carter crater. The American electorate is somewhat evenly split between fools on the Left and those who helped make America great again on the Right. The great center of independents, suburban moms, and Americanized Hispanics and Asian Americans will decide whether we return again to morning in America or end up mourning for America.

Houthis storm U.S. embassy in Yemen, "seizing large quantities of equipment and materials."

Robert Spencer writes,
Isn’t great that America is back and the adults are back in charge? America is back, all right: all the way back to 1979, the last time we had a president so weak that enemies of the United States stormed one of our embassies and took hostages. On Thursday, the Yemeni media outlet Al-Masdar Online reported that Houthi jihadis in Yemen, which are backed by the Islamic Republic of Iran, stormed our embassy in Sana’a, seizing “large quantities of equipment and materials.” Just days before that, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), they “kidnapped three Yemeni nationals affiliated with the U.S. Embassy.” Biden’s team promised America would be back, but didn’t say anything about Jimmy Carter coming around again as well.
Yet when Donald Trump had the Houthis designated as foreign terrorists, the Leftist political and media establishment was (as always regarding anything and everything Trump did) outraged. No fewer than twenty-two aid groups that were operating in Yemen demanded that the designation be revoked “immediately,” and when his handlers gained control of the presidency, Old Joe Biden did just that. Trump was right again. If any group deserves to be considered foreign terrorists, it’s the Houthis.
Nevertheless, in September the Biden administration quietly removed an advanced missile defense system from Saudi Arabia, despite the fact that the Saudis are suffering ongoing air attacks from the Houthis in Yemen.
