    How Attorney General William Barr may yet unleash the power of the Justice Department has House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff unnerved. The California Democrat invoked U.S. Attorney John Durham, who is conducting a criminal inquiry of the federal Russia investigation, as he discussed his dread that "more serious abuse" of federal law enforcement will happen in the coming days. "One of the concerns I have with Bill Barr is that the worst is yet to come. I mean, he's got a terrible, destructive track record as it is, and it may get worse in the coming days," Schiff said...

    The governors of Texas and California, the nation’s two most populous states, recently reimposed coronavirus lockdowns despite falling death rates and health-care capacity far beyond hospitalization rates. Numerous other governors have delayed reopenings or reversed them in similar situations.Lockdowns are not necessary to prevent coronavirus deaths, since the current capacity for treating cases is far above what is needed and people are going to get this disease until there’s a cure. Further, lockdowns accelerate systemic weaknesses such as our national debt, poor education, large numbers of working-age men who do not work, failure to pay for decades of overspending at...

  • Beyond defunding the police: Democratic leaders condone crime

    The Washington Examiner ^ | July 15, 2020 | Anna Giaritelli
    Democrats are moving a step beyond national debate over defunding the police, questioning whether crime is a bad thing at all. During the past month, three leading Democrats have all issued statements blessing criminal acts. As some Seattle residents illegally seized several city blocks in June and christened the area the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, the Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan did not initially intervene. Instead, Durkan said CHAZ was patriotic and that it could turn into a summer of love. Burning, rioting, and looting are criminal acts and should never be justified or excused, said Heritage Foundation President Kay James....

    They sound like Leftists. They act like Leftists. And now we learn that the Never-Trumper group called “The Lincoln Project” is funded by a Leftist billionaire, according to a new book on the subject. And a collective “Oh, it all makes sense to me now!” just spread over the land. The project features, among others, GOP political strategists Rick Wilson, Steve Schmidt, the Washington Post’s “conservative” columnist Jennifer Rubin, former “Weekly Standard” editor Bill Kristol, and disgruntled attorney, George “Mr. Kellyanne” Conway, who spends nearly all of his time trying to ruin his wife’s White House career. Judging by their...

    California is dying, I spoke with a good friend of ours who lives in Southern California for over thirty years and used to love it. However, she now says she is lonely and alone except for some true long time friends. Her grown two boys have moved from California into Arizona with the families, so her grand kids are many miles away!!! She does not believe a word the present governor utters and ditto for that fool Mayor of Los Angeles and other Mayors throughout California. Small businesses are dying, if not dead already. And she feels locked in and...

    On January 10, 2019, convicted criminal Kevin Limbaugh gunned down Natalie Corona, only 22 and a rising star in the Davis police department. Officers from across the country, joined by thousands of locals, attended a memorial service for Corona. Over at UC Davis, on the other hand, one professor openly supported the murder of police officers. That would be Joshua Clover, professor of English and comparative literature, whose publisher Verso Books describes him as a communist. Born in Berkeley in 1962, Clover (pictured above) is an alumnus of the prestigious Boston University and the Iowa Writers Workshop. He once bagged...

    The study, published in the Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America on Monday, says there is now a 2.3% chance of an earthquake of magnitude 7.5 or greater in the next 12 months on a section of the 160-mile-long Garlock fault, which runs along the northern edge of the Mojave Desert. That increased likelihood, in turn, would cause there to be a 1.15% chance of a large earthquake on the San Andreas fault in the next year.

    Dr. Scott Atlas said it feel(s) like Im living in a Kafka novel when watching politicians hysteria against school reopening, in an TV interview Monday with Martha MacCallum. According to the renowned doctor, school closings severely damage childrens development and generate next to no gains for public health. Im not sure how many times it has to be said, but the risk to children for this disease, for fatalities, is nearly zero. I mean, this is totally antithetical to the data, he said. Atlas is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, a health-care expert, and former professor and chief...

On June 2, retired St. Louis police captain David Dorn, 77, was guarding a friends pawn shop when he was gunned down in a murder reportedly live-streamed on Facebook. Our highest respect to the family of David Dorn, a Great Police Captain from St. Louis, who was viciously shot and killed by despicable looters last night, tweeted President Trump. We honor our police officers, perhaps more than ever before. Thank you! On July 4, at the White House, the president paid tribute again. We are...

    Everybody knows that California has become one of the most progressive states in America, rivaling even New York in the Progressive Olympics. Governor Gavin Newsom has led the charge in authoritarian oppression over his state, demanding that everyone wear masks anytime they are in public, banning church services of more than 100 congregants, banning singing worship music during church services and pushing the state back to an indefinite shelter-in-place order. Its time for a chance in leadership! The problem for us Conservative Californians is that theres rarely a strong conservative choice for governor. Well, that may change if Larry Elder...

    Not sure why Governor Gavin Newsom is shutting down California again. 8,088 new cases with only 45 deaths in the Golden State. California is about four times the population of North Carolina. North Carolina is averaging a little less than 2,000 cases daily and we are not shutting down the Tar Heel State. Anyway, today is Monday and the number of COVID-19 deaths remains low. Instead mainstream media is paying attention to number of cases. As usual, they are distorting the facts and not telling the whole story.
