    In response to the perceived "second wave" of COVID-19 cases, various luminaries are advancing lame ideas for dealing with it. Though the largest controlled study of masks found no significant differences in COVID infection rates between those who did and didn't wear masks, media proclaimed President-Elect Joe Biden recommends "that everyone wear a mask until my inauguration. This is the surest way to guarantee that there will be enough survivors for me to govern when I'm president." Biden dismissed contentions that the type of masks that almost everyone has been wearing offer little to no protection, saying "I know that's...
  • 'You can have cocaine and heroin, but not turkey?' Oregon Gov. Brown is slammed for telling people to SNITCH on neighbors violating COVID rules this Thanksgiving - weeks after Democrat state decriminalized ALL drugs

    The governor of Oregon has sparked outrage by saying that neighbors should call the police if they find another family celebrating Thanksgiving with a large gathering in their home, in what one local official said turned people into 'second-rate slaves' in their own homes. Kate Brown, the Democrat ruler of the state, announced on November 17 that new restrictions would be put in place the following day, with no more than six people allowed inside any one home. And she said if Oregonians saw anyone breaking the rules, they should call the cops.

    “So there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that those stickers were purposefully placed over the manufacturer’s identifying plates in order to keep their origin a secret." An acquaintance returned from early voting in Manassas, Virginia, quite irate. The stakes are high in this highly unusual once in a lifetime presidential election. As she was waiting for her registration paperwork to be processed, she studied carefully the rear of each of the voting machines that were about three feet from her. She wanted to find out the name of the manufacturer of the machines being used.

    Britain’s seat at the UN Security Council will eventually be handed to the European Union, Lord Malloch Brown, the Foreign Office Minister, has suggested. The former diplomat was brought in by Gordon Brown to help to overhaul foreign policy was already under fire for suggesting that Britain and America would no longer be “joined at the hip”. He faces fresh controversy after it emerged that last October, when he was Deputy General Secretary of the UN, he spoke approvingly of growing EU representation on a visit to Brussels last October. According to a report by the EU Observer, he told...
  • Flashback: Have Republicans learned their lessons from the Franken-Coleman recount in Minnesota?

    Hotair ^ | 11/28/2016 | Ed Morrissey
    In the summer of 2009, the state of Minnesota conducted a recount that had the nation holding its breath. Would Al Franken unseat incumbent Norm Coleman, and allow Democrats a filibuster-proof majority in the US Senate? After seven months, that’s exactly what happened. Townhall Magazine commissioned me to write an investigative cover piece on how Democrats flipped an Election Night deficit into a recount victory. (At the time, Townhall and Salem had not yet bought Hot Air.)Rather than skullduggery, I found that Republicans had been outfought after ignoring lessons from a 2004 defeat in Washington. The painful loss provides...

    Election tech company Dominion Voting Systems is rebutting assorted claims of partisan bias and voting manipulation in the 2020 election, including rumors of a secret U.S. military raid on purported servers in Germany and ownership interests and other influence in the firm by prominent Democratic families. At the same time, Dominion has confirmed reports it made a donation to the Clinton Foundation and hired a former Nancy Pelosi staffer as a lobbyist. Dominion has been at the center of a firestorm since Nov. 3, when its election management software, which is widely used across the country, led to an unofficial...

She will limit all bars and restaurants to takeout only, close all gyms, prohibit indoor and outdoor gatherings to no more than six people from two different households, limit capacity at grocery stories and pharmacies, and allow churches and faith groups to accommodate indoor crowds no larger than 25.

    Governor Kate Brown issued the following statement today with elected officials and community leaders: “As elected officials and community leaders, we are coming together to condemn the acts of violence in Portland that have occurred as thousands of Oregonians have been peacefully protesting for racial justice and police accountability. “The violence must stop. “There is no place for white supremacy or vigilantism in Oregon. All who perpetrate violent crimes must be held equally accountable. “Together, we are committing ourselves to do the hard work that will bring meaningful change for racial justice and police reform.”

    SALEM, Ore. – Oregon Governor Kate Brown unveiled a plan that she says will end violence and arson in Portland while also protecting the free speech of protesters. The governor unveiled the so-called Unified Law Enforcement Plan on Sunday, following a deadly shooting downtown. “We all must come together - elected officials, community leaders, all of us - to stop the cycle of violence,” said Governor Kate Brown. “But this is only the first step. Real change will come from the hard work to achieve racial justice. And it starts with all of us listening to each other, and working...

    In a San Francisco Chronicle column titled, “Burning and looting in the name of justice will hand election to Trump,” Brown wrote: “The biggest threat to a Democratic election sweep in November isn’t the Republican in the White House, but the demonstrators who are tearing up cities in the name of racial justice.” Noting that new polls showed voters are increasingly worried about crime, Brown said that Democrats were in a “heck of a bind”: If they stand up and condemn the “demonstrators,” the left wing will label them as Trump flunkies and they’ll be in all sorts of trouble....

    If Joe Biden offers the vice presidential slot to Sen. Kamala Harris, my advice to her would be to politely decline. Harris is a tested and proven campaigner who will work her backside off to get Biden elected. That said, the vice presidency is not the job she should go for - asking to be considered as attorney general in a Biden administration would be more like it. Being picked for the vice presidency is obviously a huge honor, and if Biden wins, Harris would make history by being the first woman to hold the job. But the glory would...

    St. Louis County Prosecutor Wesley Bell said on Thursday that he will not charge the former Ferguson police officer who shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown in 2014. Bell said that the significance of the case and requests from Michael Brown’s family prompted his office to quietly re-open an investigation about five months ago, but the office did not have enough evidence to disprove a self-defense claim in trial. “This is one of the most difficult things I’ve had to do as an elected official,” Bell said beginning a news conference Thursday.

    Portland Mayor Mayor Ted Wheeler blames President Trump for the violence and disorder raging in his city. "I've been trying to make a deal and all of his talk about law and order and sending help is making things worse," he complained. "Has Trump ever seen The Sopranos?" Wheeler asked. "Anyone who has knows that it is better to agree to give gangsters a piece of the action than to resist. As Tony Soprano would say 'that way nobody has to get hurt.' Well, giving the Antifa guys a piece of Portland is what I've been trying to do for...

    History.House ^ | 6/21/20
    On this date, Howard Smith of Virginia, chairman of the House Rules Committee, introduced the Southern Manifesto in a speech on the House Floor. Formally titled the “Declaration of Constitutional Principles,” it was signed by 82 Representatives and 19 Senators—roughly one-fifth of the membership of Congress and all from states that had once composed the Confederacy. It marked a moment of southern defiance against the Supreme Court’s 1954 landmark Brown v. the Board of Education of Topeka (KS) decision, which determined that separate school facilities for black and white school children were inherently unequal. The Manifesto attacked Brown as an...

    Last week, in the aftermath of the national fury that has erupted, and continues, over the apparent killing by a Minneapolis police officer of a black man, George Floyd, while he was being taken into custody, a letter appeared in my inbox from Christina H. Paxson, president of Brown University, where I teach. The letter, sent to thousands of students, staff, and faculty, was cosigned by many of Brown’s senior administrators and deans. “We write to you today as leaders of this university,” the letter begins, “to express first deep sadness, but also anger, regarding the racist incidents that continue...

So get ready, because we’re coming.”....

    Gavin Newsom is succeeding someone who could be considered his quasi-uncle, since his inauguration continues the decades-long saga of four San Francisco families intertwined by blood, by marriage, by money, by culture and, of course, by politics – the Browns, the Newsoms, the Pelosis and the Gettys. The connections date back at least 80 years, to when Jerry Brown’s father, Pat Brown, ran for San Francisco district attorney, losing in 1939 but winning in 1943, with the help of his close friend and Gavin Newsom’s grandfather, businessman William Newsom. Fast forward two decades...
