    Chamath Palihapitiya, a part-owner and director of the NBA’s Golden State Warriors and the venture capitalist founder and CEO of Social Capital, offered the "very hard ugly truth" about China’s human rights abuses against Uyghur Muslims in a podcast interview. Palihapitiya appeared on the "All-In Podcast" on Saturday. He made his remarks about Uyghur Muslims after his co-host Jason Calacanis praised President Biden for his decision to ban the import of goods made through forced Uyghur labor. "Nobody cares about what’s happening to the Uyghurs, OK? You bring it up because you really care and I think it’s nice that...
  • New ‘Domestic Terror Unit’ Is A Way To Punish Americans For Thought Crimes

    The Federalist ^ | JANUARY 17, 2022 | HUDSON CROZIER
    On Tuesday, Department of Justice representatives informed a Senate committee of plans to gather a group of select attorneys to form a “Domestic Terror Unit” in light of the Jan. 6, 2021 attack, noting that its number of investigations of alleged domestic terrorists have more than doubled since the spring of 2020. While admitting “there is no single federal crime labeled ‘domestic terrorism,’” a DOJ official promised to invoke a “criminal code” that allows enhanced sentences for certain crimes listed as “terror offenses.” There are many reasons to doubt the authenticity of the federal government’s efforts against this “persistent and...
  • Democrats Are Priming Themselves To Refuse To Accept Any Election Defeats

    01/17/2022 10:25:15 AM PST · by Red Badger · 14 replies ^ | January 17, 2022 | BY: JONATHAN S. TOBIN
    How will Democrats react to the thumping that most observers believe they will get in the 2022 midterm elections? Or to the possibility that in three years a Republican could be sworn in as the 47th president? They relish the Jan. 6 opportunity to endlessly relive the supposed danger that a disgraceful but still pathetically ineffectual riot posed to the republic, which they have spent the last 12 months misrepresenting as an “insurrection” or failed coup d’etat by Republicans. The media treated the date as a sort of new national holiday to reinforce the awfulness of former President Trump and...
  • Quarterback Cancels Cancel Culture

    So it’s refreshing when a pro athlete like Green Bay Packer quarterback Aaron Rodgers unabashedly states, “I’m an athlete. I’m not an activist.” Rodgers, a Super Bowl winner, three-time Most Valuable Player in the National Football League, and nine-time Pro Bowl selectee, is generally considered one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. He has also become a polarizing, controversial figure and a target of the totalitarian left precisely because he doesn’t conform to the woke expectations of our heavily-politicized culture. Last November, Rodgers triggered the left-dominated media after making statements that did not align with the acceptable narrative about...

    On May 7, 2021, during the peak of India's Delta Surge, The World Health Organization reported, "Uttar Pradesh (is) going the last mile to stop COVID-19." The WHO noted, "Government teams are moving across 97,941 villages in 75 districts over five days in this activity which began May 5 in India's most populous state with a population of 230 million." The activity involved an aggressive house-to-house test and treat program with medicine kits. The WHO explained, "Each monitoring team has two members who visit homes in villages and remote hamlets to test everyone with symptoms of COVID-19 using Rapid...

    US Congresswoman Rep. Kat Cammack sounds the alarm. The Democrats are breaking all the rules to end elections in America forevermore. Rep. Cammack did not vote for the Democrats’ scam move to steal elections. No Republican did. Officially, this bill was created by the Democrats to concur with Senate amendments and further amend the bill to merge the John Lewis Voting Rights Act and the Freedom to Vote Act into previously passed legislation extending NASA’s authority to lease its facilities. Rep. Cammack tells it all on the Democrats’ efforts in this BS voting rights bill.

    A Republican candidate for Arizona governor dropped out of the race hours before former President Donald Trump was set to speak at a rally with her top rival. Kimberly Yee released a statement Saturday saying she will instead run for reelection as state treasurer. "I am withdrawing from the Governor's race to stand for re-election as Treasurer. There is additional work to be done as the Treasurer of Arizona. As I transition my campaign, I want to thank my supporters and invite them to join me in my re-election efforts for Arizona Treasurer," she said in a tweet. Yee did...

    Townhall ^ | 01/16/2022 | Rebecca Downs
    An alarming amount of Democrats, as Scott highlighted, support strict government action against the unvaccinated, according to a recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen Reports. That desire for such force against unvaccinated citizens has been extended to the mainstream media with a January 15 editorial from The Salt Lake Tribune calling on Gov. Spencer Cox (R) to activate the National Guard to prevent unvaccinated Utahans from participating in society.That's actually what it says:Were Utah a truly civilized place, the governor’s next move would be to find a way to mandate the kind of mass vaccination campaign we should...

    It is a “waste of time” to keep vaccinating people against the (CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, the former chairman of Britain’s Vaccines Taskforce has said.Dr. Clive Dix, who played a key role in helping pharmaceutical firms create the COVID-19 vaccines, told LBC radio on Jan. 16: “The Omicron variant is a relatively mild virus. And to just keep vaccinating people and thinking of doing it again to protect the population is, in my view, now a waste of time.”Dix said the focus now should be on protecting vulnerable people, such as those over 60, 2 percent of whom remain...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump falsely declared in a weekend rally that public health authorities are denying the COVID-19 vaccine to white people because of their race. TRUMP: “The left is now rationing lifesaving therapeutics based on race, discriminating against and denigrating ... white people to determine who lives and who dies. If you’re white you don’t get the vaccine or if you’re white you don’t get therapeutics. ... In New York state, if you’re white, you have to go to the back of the line to get medical health.” THE FACTS: No, white people are not being excluded from...

    On Sunday, the federal government presented the finished draft law for the planned general obligation to vaccinate against coronavirus. This will come into force at the beginning of February with an "initial phase", as Chancellor Karl Nehammer (OVP) said on Sunday at a joint press conference with Constitutional Minister Karoline Edstadler (OVP) and Health Minister Wolfgang Muckstein (Greens). In contrast to the original plan, vaccination will now apply to people aged 18 and over and not 14 years of age. There are exceptions for pregnant women and those who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons. Furthermore those who have recovered...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — From the inaugural platform, President Joe Biden saw American sickness on two fronts — a disease of the national spirit and the one from the rampaging coronavirus — and he saw hope, because leaders always must see that. “End this uncivil war,” he implored Americans on Jan. 20, 2021. Of the pathogen, he said: “We can overcome this deadly virus.” Neither malady has abated. For Biden, it’s been a year of lofty ambitions grounded by the unrelenting pandemic, a tough hand in Congress, a harrowing end to an overseas war and rising fears for the future of...

    It wasn’t clear why the attacker chose the synagogue. Law enforcement officials who were not authorized to discuss the ongoing investigation and who spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity earlier said the hostage-taker demanded the release of Aafia Siddiqui, a Pakistani neuroscientist suspected of having ties to al-Qaida who is in a federal prison in Texas. He also said he wanted to be able to speak with her, according to the officials, one of whom confirmed that the hostage-taker was a British national.

    Kari Lake, a candidate for Governor in Arizona, told Breitbart News Saturday that she plans to enter into an interstate compact with other states to circumvent federal immigration and border policies. Before politics, Lake covered the state of Arizona as an anchorwoman for 27 years. Now, Lake is taking on the political battle in Arizona because the state needs a governor “who will stand for the people and not the special interest.” Breitbart News Saturday host Matthew Boyle highlighted Lake’s 11-page immigration policy and asked her to expound upon her plans to secure America’s southern border. Lake called out the...

    Former President Donald Trump is stepping up his election-year effort to dominate the Republican Party with a Saturday rally in Arizona in which he plans to castigate anyone who dares to question his lie that the 2020 presidential election was stolen, likely including the state’s GOP governor, Doug Ducey. But 2,000 miles to the east in Washington, there are small signs that some Republicans are tiring of the charade. Mike Rounds, the generally unassuming senator from South Dakota, was perhaps the boldest in acknowledging the reality that the election was in fact fair. Instead of being shunned, he was supported...

    U.S.A. –-( On January 11, 2022, the Indiana House passed Constitutional Carry Bill HB 1077.In 2021, Indiana came very close to passing Constitutional Carry in the state. On February 22 of 2021, the House passed bill 1368 65 to 31. The Indiana Senate had 39 Republicans and 11 Democrats. The future of HB 1368 looked bright.Constitutional Carry is a restoration of the right to carry, without government permission, similar to when the Second Amendment was ratified in 1791. At that time, there were no requirements to have government permission to carry firearms, openly or concealed. There were few places where...

    In a statement released by his office, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis criticized Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and John Roberts as a lack of ‘backbone’ for siding with liberal justices and upholding President Biden’s vaccine mandate for healthcare workers. Earlier this week, the Supreme Court issued a much anticipated ruling blocking Biden’s mandate requiring vaccinations for businesses with more than 100 employees or regular testing. The high court however allowed a mandate requiring that facilities that receive federal funding to tell employees to get vaccinated. On Friday, DeSantis appeared on the ‘Ruthless’ podcast to discuss the nurse mandate and the...
