  • Is Soros Behind the War on Hydroxychloroquine?

    BIN ^ | 5/24/20 | Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz
    Even though many lives are at stake, the response to the coronavirus pandemic has been heavily politicized. A bit of research into the separate elements shows some disturbing connections, indicating the media war against hydroxychloroquine may be backed by some nefarious forces. On March 19, President Trump announced that the FDA would fast-track approval of unproven coronavirus treatments, including hydroxychloroquine. Two months later, after much heated debate and a media war over the drug, Trump announced he was taking hydroxychloroquine as prophylaxis. One week after TrumpÂ’s hydroxychloroquine claim, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA)...
  • D.C. Prep School Beloved by Dem Leaders Refuses to Return Gov’t Loan

    Sidwell Friends School, a Quaker-affiliated independent school known for enrolling top lawmakers' children—including the daughters of former presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama—accepted a $5.2 million loan under the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), Congress's bailout fund for small businesses affected by the coronavirus crisis. The school, which brings in over $40 million in tuition annually, declined to give back the loan after Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin called on "private schools with significant endowments" to "return" PPP funds. In a letter to the community, the board of trustees cited its "fiduciary responsibilities" as well as "our Quaker values" in...
  • Multimillionaire Celebrities Call For End to Capitalism From The Comfort of Their Luxury Mansions. They’ll continue to live like royalty while you eat bugs.

    The petition, called ‘Please, let’s not go back to normal’, says the COVID-19 pandemic is a “tragedy,” but that the “ongoing ecological catastrophe is a meta-crisis.” The pursuit of consumerism and an obsession with productivity have led us to deny the value of life itself: that of plants, that of animals, and that of a great number of human beings,” states the letter. “Pollution, climate change, and the destruction of our remaining natural zones has brought the world to a breaking point.” The petition urges world leaders to not allow everyone to “go back to normal” after the coronavirus pandemic...
  • Madonna and Robert de Niro join 200 celebrities and scientists calling for the world not to 'return to normal' after Covid-19 lockdowns and stop 'the pursuit of consumerism'

    A host of celebrities and scientists including Madonna, Robert de Niro and a clutch of Nobel Prize winners have called for radical change in the world rather than 'a return to normal' after the coronavirus lockdowns. Hollywood stars Cate Blanchett, Jane Fonda, Marion Cotillard and Monica Bellucci also added their names to the open letter published in the French daily Le Monde. The signatories are pleading for an end to unbridled consumerism and a 'radical transformation' of economies to help save the planet. The movement has been penned and led by actress Juliette Binoche and astrophysicist Aurélien Barrau. A full...

    A very self-assured Stacy Abrams indulged the hosts of 'The View' with lies about [the real] Governor Brian Kemp’s plan to reopen much of Georgia’s economy Stacy Abrams may have lost the Georgia governor’s race in 2018, but that hasn’t stopped her from pretending she is one, imitating other governors like Whitmer and Brown in their fear-based responses to the COVID-19 pandemic and fundamentally distorted views of economic policy. She took time out of her busy schedule running for vice presidential nominee yesterday to indulge the ladies of “The View” with all the satisfying lies rich and isolated people who...
  • Elites Screwed Up Iraq, Russiagate, And Much More. How Can We Trust Their Coronavirus Management?

    The Federalist ^ | April 24, 2020 | Saritha Prabhu
    Virus management is about power and control, the two things the elite always want and therefore don’t want to relinquish even when the virus recedes. The big-picture story of American politics of the last four years has been a battle royale between elite power structures and millions of ordinary Americans. Donald Trump’s 2016 election win, the Russia collusion hoax, and the impeachment drama were all essentially tussles between elite control and democratic norms, between the will of the powerful and the will of the 2016 voters, a.k.a. Trump supporters. A loose assortment of unelected bureaucrats, D.C. power players, Democratic leaders,...

    American Greatness ^ | April 12, 2020 | Victor Davis Hanson
    The Thin Façade of Authority As we continue to debate about numerators and denominators in determining the real impact of this virus, one common denominator remains certain about the elites advising, crafting, and developing our response: they aren’t touched by the impact of their decisions. The virus will teach us many things, but one lesson has already been relearned by the American people: there are two, quite different, types of wisdom. One, and the most renowned, is a specialization in education that results in titled degrees and presumed authority. That ensuing prestige, in turn, dictates the decisions of most politicians,...
  • Do you trust Bill Gates and the Elites? (part 3)

    04/11/2020 6:08:45 PM PDT · by Jan_Sobieski · 19 replies ^ | 4/11/2020 | Jamie Northrup
    Bill Gates and Elites want to reduce the population by 90%. They believe that 500 million is about all the population that planet earth can support. Their proof text is the Malthusian doomsday book written by John Holdren (Obama's Science Czar), Paul Ehrlich, and Anne Ehrlich entitled, "Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment." The Coronavirus pandemic has become a convenient, or manufactured, excuse to enact their plans. Yet it was God gave man a mandate to procreate and fill the face of the earth. God said be fruitful and multiply in Genesis 1, 9, and Psalm 127. Psalm 127:3 Lo, children are...
  • 'Blow Up the Bridges': Some Wealthy Manhattanites Are Knowingly Bringing Wuhan Coronavirus to the Hamptons

    New York City represents over half of all of the 40,000+ cases of Wuhan coronavirus infections in the United States. There are hordes of wealthy people in the city. So, where would Manhattanites go at this time? The Hamptons. And the locals here are not happy. As New York Post columnist Maureen Callahan wrote, it’s all-out class warfare as the elite and entitled are making life hell for the locals. She wrote that these folks, who landscape and tend to the super-rich during the summer months are not tolerant of this spring invasion, where grocery stores are wiped out and...

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 23 Feb 2020 | John Semmens
    Democratic presidential contender and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg lamented that “the $400 million I’ve had to spend on my campaign shows how inefficient the process is. Not only am I out a huge chunk of change, but TV viewers across America are having their homes flooded with my ads. There has to be a better way.” What a better way might look like, according to Bloomberg, is “like we do it in the business world. When a man with resources sees a company being run ineffectively he buys the owners out. Both sides benefit. The incompetent owners...

    U.S.—Farmers have long been looked down upon by coastal elites, and now the farmers are finally getting their revenge: the "redneck hicks" all around the country have announced they will not be shipping the ingredients needed to make avocado toast to major liberal cities like New York and Los Angeles. "Until further notice, you'll have to farm your own wheat and grow your own avocados," a spokesperson for America's farmers said as he chewed on a stalk of Timothy grass and did other stereotypical farmer things. "Have fun! Yeehaw!" Avocado farmers in rural parts of Florida and California reminded city...

    The Lowell Sun ^ | 02-02-2020 | Tom Shattuck
    Last Saturday night, CNN’s Don Lemon and his panel laughed uproariously at their portrayal of Donald Trump supporters as uneducated idiots. “‘Donald Trump’s the smart one, and y’all, y’all elitists are dumb!'” Trump-hating Rick Wilson bellowed in a southern accent, pretending to be a typical Trump voter. Wilson also referred to the president’s base as a “credulous boomer rube demo.” The laughs were endless. They were really into it. The two panelists lampooned pathetic Trump voters and Lemon belly-laughed, doubled over from all the hilarity. Later in the week, apparently as a result of some blowback the viral clip caused,...

    “It saddens me”, he says,” to see the white man beating his breast over and over, too emasculated to put up any resistance to people who’ve come to threaten him on his own doorstep”. He believes that a toxic mix of guilt, “human rightsism”, political naivety and crass ignorance of History have a debilitating effect on Europeans’ capacity to fight the invasion. He accuses the corrupt African leaders of destroying the lives of hundreds of millions of human beings in all impunity, but is equally critical of the ideologues who are paving the way for them. They should stop blaming...

    DAVOS, Switzerland -- Rising income inequality is undermining confidence in capitalism around the world, according to a survey conducted by public relations firm Edelman ahead of the gathering of the elites in the Swiss ski resort of Davos. Among those surveyed in the report published Monday, 56% thought that capitalism was doing more harm than good despite another year of solid economic growth and near-full employment in many developed countries. “We are living in a trust paradox,” said Richard Edelman, the CEO of Edelman, which has been conducting its survey of trust for 20 years. “Since we began measuring trust,...
  • AG Barr’s Attack On ‘The Resistance’ Didn’t Go Over Well With The Left

    The author provides the following from Bill Barr's excellent recent speech to The Federalist Society. Immediately after President Trump won election, opponents inaugurated what they called “The Resistance,” and they rallied around an explicit strategy of using every tool and maneuver available to sabotage the functioning of his Administration. Now, “resistance” is the language used to describe insurgency against rule imposed by an occupying military power. It obviously connotes that the government is not legitimate. This is a very dangerous – indeed incendiary – notion to import into the politics of a democratic republic. What it means is that, instead...

    Impeachment hearings are a taxpayer-funded, propaganda war of political intimidation: an attempt not only to undermine Pres Trump, but to demoralize and break the will of those who voted for him. Democrats are not solemnly upholding the Constitution. They are conducting psychological warfare under the pretext of law. They want the president and his supporters — those who dared challenge the permanent, elite government class — to know they can never win. Stand with us, “get on the right side of history,” or suffer the consequences, just like the president you supported, is the message. This is not good faith,...

    If you’re looking for a shortcut to get your kid into a prestigious college, but your little one doesn’t have high enough cheekbones to claim to be an Indian, consider the petal-strewn path of the newly elected San Francisco district attorney, Chesa Boudin. Chesa’s sparkling credentials are: He is the son of celebrated cop-killers Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert! That was enough to win him admission to Yale, Oxford and Yale Law School. His mother consciously parlayed her way to success by becoming a violent revolutionary after realizing that she wasn’t going to set the world on fire with her...

    The Daily Signal ^ | November 7, 2019 | Victor Davis Hanson
    Multiple forms of socialism, from hard Stalinism to European redistribution, continue to fail. Russia and China are still struggling with the legacy of genocidal communism. Eastern Europe still suffers after decades of Soviet-imposed socialist chaos. Cuba, Nicaragua, North Korea, and Venezuela are unfree, poor, and failed states. Baathism—a synonym for pan-Arabic socialism—ruined the postwar Middle East. The soft-socialist European Union countries are stagnant and mostly dependent on the U.S. military for their protection. In contrast, current American deregulation, tax cuts, and incentives, and record energy production have given the United States the strongest economy in the world. So why, then,...
  • The Left-Right Divide Is About Reality Itself

    The left-right divide in America is, unfortunately, unbridgeable. There are three reasons. First, we are divided by our vision of what we want America to be. The right believes the founders' vision was brilliant and moral, that bourgeois middle-class values are superior to alternative value systems; that rights come from God, not man; and that the state must be as small as possible. The left (not liberals) shares none of those values. Second, we are divided by the means we use to achieve our vision. Given their different ends, left and right obviously differ on what means to use to...

    The other day, I was listening to Heather MacDonald speaking about homelessness during an appearance on City Journal’s Ten Blocks podcast. She was describing a visit to San Francisco, and it all sounded so familiar. Before I get to Heather’s riff on the homeless, I want to do a little riff of my own about the homeless and others in America’s underclass. As long-time readers know, I actually have a conduit to the homeless and the underclass. A very dear childhood friend of mine has made life choices that see her living amongst them. When I visit her, I meet...
