    Yesterday, in a videotaped message, Dr. Anthony Fauci, spoke as a public health official, to the Black Lives Matter and Antifa protesters, warning protesters they could be furthering the spread COVID-19. Fauci sat in a sterile room at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, as he appeared to be apologizing for having to ask protesters in massive groups to maintain a safe social distance, Its very difficult, if not impossible to maintain the kind of physical separation that is recommended, Dr. Fauci said. In his message to protesters/rioters, Dr. Fauci explained, So, in a perfect world, you wouldnt...

    An advisory board overseeing the T has agreed on an order not to allow buses to transport police to protests or protesters to police, officials said Thursday. Our concern is that there is a political fight going on in our country to eliminate racist practices, and we are not going to have the T used in any way, shape or form to inhibit people from expressing themselves, board member Brian Lang told 7NEWS.

    Mark Zuckerberg is reportedly considering adding warning labels to Facebook posts penned by government leaders if they incite violence - less than a week after he criticized Twitter for doing the exact same thing. Vox obtained access to a video conference call between Zuckerberg and several of his Facebook employees Tuesday, during which he revealed he was toying with the idea. According to the publication, Zuckerberg also predicted that the United States could be entering a 'prolonged period of civil unrest', meaning that the company may 'alter its policies on what kind of announcements government leaders can make about state...

    The anger over George Floyd's death has led to protests across the country and the situation is worsening by the day. While some are protesting peacefully, others have resorted to violence, looting and vandalism to rebel against the law enforcement after Floyd was killed in custody when a Minneapolis police officer pinned him down with his knee over his neck last week. A state of emergency has been declared in several states and the National Guard has stepped in to deal with the intensifying unrest. However, a new video clip has started circulating on social media suggesting that law enforcement...

    Twitter is allowing its users to coordinate criminal behavior on the platform, with dozens of tweets identifying looting targets still on the platform despite the fact that the site was notified by concerned citizens. The company has however changed the description of its official account to #BlackLivesMatter. A Twitter search for Santana Row, which is the name of a shopping district in San Jose, California, reveals dozens of Twitter users encouraging their followers to target and loot the district. Many of the tweets have been on the platform for days. lets riot and raid Santana Row lol, said one tweet,...

    As the riots and destruction across America continued for the fifth day after protests originally over the death of George Floyd devolved into looting and destruction in Minneapolis, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio despicably attempted to score political points by blaming President Donald Trump for the atmosphere of tension and hatred and division behind the protests. Yet he managed to alienate the anti-Trump left a few hours later by refusing to condemn police who drove a cruiser into a crowd of protesters. Ive not seen the specific words coming out of the White House or actions but I can...

    ...Good news for looters, you can find some overpriced junk with Teigen's name on it at Target....Maybe if Target stopped doing business with radical lefty celebs who help looters and rioters, its stores would be less likely to be looted. But Vladimir knew what he was talking about. Corporate America can't and won't stop following the lead of the radical lefties...Keep doubling down on social justice and eventually you'll run out of stores. When you make America a target, you also make yourself a target.
  • We learned that in Minnesota the National Guard, State Police, and the local Police turned and ran and left the citizens to defend for themselves. So I have a couple of questions for our Protect and Serve authorities. (Vanity)

    1. What determines the point at which you will turn and run and abandon the citizens you have sworn to protect and serve? 2. Can you draft a policy which gives the citizens a clear understanding of when you will turn and run? This is vital to the community because they need as much notice as possible to arm, organize, and deploy to have a chance to overcome the threat. 3. Hypothetically, suppose a crowd of thousands of thugs approaches a community and you turn and run and abandon your citizens. The next day, thousands of bodies of thugs are...

    Just four days after George Floyd was killed by Minneapolis Police Officer, Derek Chauvin, and the video sparked protests across the country, Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz welcomed in a few dozen African American community leaders to talk at One Government Center. Mayor Kapszukiewicz acknowledged that Toledo is 652 miles away from Minneapolis, where the incident happened that resulted in Floyd's death. But he said the video made him sick to his stomach and he made a long-term commitment to opening up communication, and having difficult conversations like he had. In front of the Safety Building after the meeting, the mayor...

    The Bangladeshi-Indian restaurant, Gandhi Mahal, in Minneapolis' 3rd Precinct was burned to the ground during riots that ravaged the city Thursday night into Friday morning. The restaurant sat in the epicenter of where America's riots began following the death of George Floyd. In fact, 18-year-old Hafsa Islam, the restaurant owner's daughter, saw Floyd being arrested while she was making a Door Dash delivery. She learned later in the day that Floyd had died. Hafsa was originally upset with the fact that her family's business and main source of income was lost until she heard her father say, "Let...

    We knew from recent rallies and riots that its highly likely the groups behind todays riots are Domestic terrorists, revolutionary communists, US based radical Islamist organizations and others related to the Democrat Party. Today we have more proof this is the case. We reported a few days ago that Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omars daughter tweeted out support for the protestors: Minnesota Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omars daughter Isra Hirsi, retweeted a list of supplies for comrades who are rioting in Minneapolis. Isra Hirsi is the co-founder of US Youth Climate Strike and her Twitter bio says she hates capitalism. Isra Hirsi...

    It is day five of protests following the killing of unarmed black man, George Floyd, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, at the hands of a white police officer as three of his colleagues looked on. And now, as the number of demonstrators arrested continues to mount up around the country, Chrissy Teigen has pledged to help those in need of bail money. The model and television personality offered to donate $100,000 to the cause, but she has since doubled the amount to $200,000, in a clap back at people who criticized her gesture and essentially labeled protesters as criminals.

    Liberal filmmaker and frequent Trump-critic Michael Moore encouraged violent protesters in Minneapolis to revolt and demolish police stations, all while accusing White Minnesota of tolerating the murder of black people. Moores tweets Demonstrators looted stores, clashed with police, and set stores and various buildings, including a police station, on fire in response to the killing of 46-year-old black Minneapolis resident George Floyd, who died while in police custody on Monday. The St. Paul Police Department stated that over 170 businesses were damaged or looted and dozens of fires were started.

    While police in New York have been enforcing social distancing and stay-at-home orders in the last few weeks of the coronavirus pandemic, the state effectively worked to criminalize part of their jobs. A U.S. Attorney in New York accused Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo of legislating obstruction with a law that bans police from sharing Department of Motor Vehicles information with federal immigration agencies. New Yorks Green Light Law was passed last year allowing a drivers license to anyone without legal immigration status, and now the approved 2020 budget has added an eyebrow-raising amendment. While the Green Light Law prohibited the...

    Earlier this week, I suggested that the United States restrict Chinese nationals from studying advanced scientific and technological subjects in our country. My suggestion prompted a torrent of abuse from the media. Its hard to know what triggered Cottons rant, Catherine Rampell complained in The Washington Post, resorting to ad hominem cries of xenophobia while ignoring the crux of the matter. Not until the final paragraph did she even acknowledge the risk of Chinese espionage, blithely suggesting that we simply prosecute such crimes. I suppose Rampell has missed years of FBI warnings about Chinese espionage, so let me add some...

    Wait, this title is misleading in that it could be read that either reporters or liberals suck, and the fact is that both suck. But reporters dont have to suck. Liberals always do, because their trash ideology is terrible and yet they adhere to it. Reporters could be no-holds-barred truthtellers who could not care less, whose agenda they skewer or narrative they shatter in pursuit of the truth. Thats at least theoretically possible, even though most of them merely aspire to be skeevy prog transcriptionists typing out ham-handed propaganda to please their pinko masters. But if our reporters were not...
