    President Donald Trump on Saturday was photographed wearing a mask during a visit to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, after months of refusing to don the medical expert-recommended face coverings meant to help slow the spread of the coronavirus. "I love masks in the appropriate locations," Trump said, speaking to reporters at the White House before his visit. Trump's usual reluctance to cover his mouth and nose in public has been a point of controversy during the nation's coronavirus crisis, especially as cases of COVID-19 continue to spike — particularly in Republican-led states. Before taking off for Walter...

    Where black racism and Marxism are dressed up as “social justice.” Black Lives Matter (BLM) was established in 2013 by a trio of self-identified Marxist revolutionaries. Striving to make white Americans “uncomfortable about institutional racism” and the “structural oppression” that allegedly “prevents so many [black people] from realizing their dreams,” BLM contends that blacks living under America's “white supremacist system” are routinely targeted for “extrajudicial killings … by police and vigilantes.” That claim has become an article of faith for the millions of American leftists who dutifully parrot BLM's talking points. The remainder of this article is dedicated to providing...
  • Juan Williams: A bad moon on the rise

    In the words of Creedence Clearwater Revival, "I see a bad moon rising." My fear comes from watching a scary alliance taking shape on the far-right. It begins with President Trump, who is falling farther and farther behind former Vice President Biden, his presumptive Democratic opponent. Biden led Trump by 12 points in a Fox News poll last week. Feeling political heat, Trump is resorting to dividing and scaring people while posing as the strong man needed to satisfy what he calls the American public's "demand [for] law and order." Just last week, Facebook took down several Trump campaign ads...

    NASCAR said it is investigating after a noose was found in the garage of black driver Bubba Wallace on Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway in Lincoln, Alabama. "Late this afternoon, NASCAR was made aware that a noose was found in the garage stall of the 43 team. We are angry and outraged, and cannot state strongly enough how seriously we take this heinous act," NASCAR said in a statement. "We have launched an immediate investigation, and will do everything we can to identify the person(s) responsible and eliminate them from the sport. "As we have stated unequivocally, there is no place...

    The Michigan rapper who filmed his brother pummeling a white Macy’s store employee claims he clearly heard the man utter a racial slur and that the violent reaction ‘was spur of the moment.’ ‘I just want people to know the real story of really what happened and what’s in the description of me and my brother just walking into Macy’s just minding our own business,’ FT Quay, the 22-year-old rapper, told the New York Post. ‘And, yes, we made a petty joke and asked the guy “Was the shirt too little?” when he could’ve asked me. He was just being...

    A video of a "devastated" black mother crying because she won't be able to feed her kids after looters ransacked a local grocery store is going viral on the internet. In the video, the woman walks the aisles of the store documenting the destruction. Nearly every shelf in the store is cleared of food and supplies, and the floor is littered with damaged goods. "Look at this, every grocery store looks like this," the woman says. "Everything is ... on the floor. Look at this ... in my hood, can't even get no food for my kids."

    Former Vice President Joe Biden predicted on Wednesday that President Donald Trump will try to “steal” the general election in November by limiting Americans’ access to voting. “This president is going to try to steal this election,” Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, told Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show With Trevor Noah.” “This is the guy who said all mail-in ballots are fraudulent — voting by mail — while he sits behind a desk in the Oval Office and writes his mail-in ballot to vote in a primary,” Biden added. Trump has repeatedly leveled allegations of large-scale mail-in voter fraud...

    Yesterday morning Joe Concha tweeted out an article by Mike Morell, a former Deputy Director of the CIA from 2010-2013. Morell said, in essence,  "the only culprit in the Flynn ‘unmasking’ scandal is the Trump administration." I've never liked Morell. I always found him slimy and less than honest. Others have as well. During the Benghazi episode Morell was thought to be "lacking candor" to coin a phrase. Here is one take: After former acting CIA Director Mike Morell testified to the House Intelligence Committee that he is the one who changed the Benghazi talking points, Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH)...

    ...Antifa has never had to hide in Seattle, Portland or the rest of the West Coast. When the news media is forced to mention them at all, they obligingly call them “anti-fascists”, which, this week, useful idiots have been touting on Twitter as proof that being against Antifa means one is for fascism, to which I have replied, “why are you against ‘Making America Great Again?” Antifa loves guns, they have a militia arm and they have practiced seizing civilian infrastructure, part of Phase Two on Mao’s rules for Insurgencies In notoriously anti-Second Amendment Seattle, Antifa open-carried.

    It’s no longer a question as to whether President Trump will exceed 20,000 false or misleading claims by the time his current term is completed. Instead, we have to ask: Will he top 25,000? As of May 29, his 1,226th day in office, Trump had made 19,127 false or misleading claims, according to the Fact Checker’s database that analyzes, categorizes and tracks every suspect statement he has uttered. That’s almost 16 claims a day over the course of his presidency. So far this year, he’s averaging just over 22 claims a day, similar to the pace he set in 2019.

    BNJ Editorial June 12, 2017 Ever think why big lies are more believable than little ones? Big lies have an inherent power to upset us, and trigger our control mechanism, one such control mechanism is fear. What are some of the big lies that have shaped American society? To accommodate a lifestyle that handles so many undesirable outcomes we need lies if we are going to avoid accepting what we know instinctively to be true. We live in denial, so lies do an excellent job of excusing our failings, confirming our basest purposes, and avoiding anxiety about what may happen...

    Since the outbreak of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, commonly known as the novel coronavirus, the world has been skeptical of China’s confirmed cases and deaths figures. In fact, this is not the first time that the totalitarian regime is facing the world’s scrutiny for spreading disinformation on matters related to health emergencies: in 2003 it was the SARS coverup. But how many are aware of the fact that even the school textbooks in China contain distorted information on history, both theirs and the world’s? Here are five of the biggest lies that Chinese students are taught in school....

    White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany schooled a reporter about Obamagate on Friday. The smug reporter asked the press secretary to name the specific elements of the crime that members of the Obama administration may have committed. After first acknowledging the lack of journalistic curiosity on the subject by the mainstream media, McEnany went through a list of possible crimes. "The Steele Dossier, funded by the Democratic National Committee, ... was used to obtain FISA warrants to listen in on conversations of people within the Trump campaign. There was the unmasking the identity of Michael Flynn, and we know that...

    We the media have "fact-checked" President Trump like we have fact-checked no other human being on the planet, and he's certainly given us plenty to write about. That's probably why it's so easy to find lists enumerating and examining his mistakes, missteps and "lies." But as self-appointed arbiters of truth, we've largely excused our own unprecedented string of fact-challenged reporting. The truth is, formerly well-respected, top news organizations are making repeat, unforced errors in numbers that were unheard of just a couple of years ago. Our repeat mistakes involve declaring that Trump's claims are "lies" when they are matters of...

    When Kayleigh McEnany was named as the new White House press secretary, replacing Stephanie Grisham, she looked to be a good choice. It’s proven to be true and the White House correspondents don’t quite know how to handle that.McEnany is being tested by the press. She held the first White House press briefing on May 1 and since then has done two more. That’s three in the span of eight days, which is three more than her predecessor held. During the first one, she was asked by Reuters reporter Jeff Mason if she promises not to lie to them....

    At the height of Israel’s battle against COVID-19 last month, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned several Knesset members from his Likud party that if reports from overseas of patients who had recovered from the virus again testing positive for it were accurate, humanity could be wiped out, a TV report claimed on Friday night. “There are reports from overseas about reinfection,” Channel 12 news said the unnamed Likud MKs recalled Netanyahu saying. “If this is true,” the prime minister reportedly went on, “the significance could be the end of humanity.” Others with whom the prime minister spoke to, the TV...

Pence, touring a General Motors/Ventec plant in Indiana, was joined in wearing a mask by White House adviser Peter Navarro and Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao. On Tuesday, Pence opted not to wear a mask on a visit to the Minnesota health center, creating significant controversy.

    Explosive new internal FBI documents unsealed Wednesday show that top bureau officials discussed their motivations for interviewing then-national security adviser Michael Flynn in the White House in January 2017 -- and openly questioned if their "goal" was "to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired." The handwritten notes -- written by the FBI's former head of counterintelligence Bill Priestap after a meeting with then-FBI Director James Comey and then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, Fox News is told -- further suggested that agents planned in the alternative to get Flynn "to admit to breaking the...

    A broad majority of Georgia voters support a statewide shelter-in-place to combat the spread of the coronavirus, according to a University of Georgia survey released as Gov. Brian Kemp debates whether to extend stay-at-home orders set to expire Thursday night. The survey found about one-half of registered Georgia voters support the mandate that took effect April 3, and an additional one-quarter of voters “somewhat back it.” Only about 10% of Georgians oppose the idea; the rest are neutral or undecided. And roughly 62% of Georgia voters disapprove of Kemp’s decision to ease restrictions on restaurants, theaters and close-contact businesses such...
