    If you were ever curious and wanted to be a fly on the wall in a forum with some of the leaders of unorganized militia groups in these United States, then this is for you. There is an essay being circulated within militia circles, and I thought it was just too good not to let you peak into the Smokey Back room of what is being said, doubly so from the comments it has received. This comes from a militia leader, addressing everyone in open forum. I obtained permission to repost here. I did not edit it. It does contain...

    Country group Lady A, which dropped the word “Antebellum,” from their name because of the word's ties to slavery, has filed a lawsuit against a Black singer who has performed as Lady A for years.

    New polling confirms Americans are not as crazy and clueless as their mainstream media. Despite all the media BS about peaceful protests, Americans are not so willing to go along with ripping down all the statues of heroes and saints, burning and looting the business districts and threats to abolish the police. According to a new poll by Democracy Institute the fallout from the Black Lives Matter protests and riots will win President Trump his reelection.

    If you want to be one of the first to receive an experimental vaccine for Covid-19, now's your chance. Wednesday, a new website -- coronaviruspreventionnetwork.org -- went live allowing people in the United States to register to take part in clinical trials for vaccines. The website will handle registration for the four large vaccine studies that are expected to start this summer and fall, and any others that follow. The US Department of Health and Human Services announced the website Wednesday, along with the appointment of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle as the coordinating center for vaccine...

    Becker's Hospital Review ^ | July 8, 2020 | Maia Anderson
    Two more drugmakers have recalled their metformin products following an FDA warning that it found unacceptable levels of a carcinogen in the drugs. Lupin Pharmaceuticals, based in Mumbai, India, is recalling all lots of its metformin extended-release tablets after finding certain batches were above the acceptable daily intake level for N-Nitrosodimethylamine, NDMA, a carcinogen. Metformin is the generic name for a type of drug that is used to improve blood glucose control in adults with Type 2 diabetes. Granules Pharmaceuticals, based in Hyderabad, India, is recalling 12 lots of its metformin tablets for the same reason. Neither drugmaker said they...

    For those of you unfamiliar with cancel culture, it’s speech that speaks out against other speech that may be speaking speakings that other speakers find offensive. The organizers of the recent Harper’s Magazine letter against cancel culture didn’t ask me to participate in their project, despite the fact that my Uncle, T. Gore Pollack III, was that magazine’s founding editor. They neglected to include me because they’re afraid of my ideas. Also, I’ve either divorced, broken up with, or participated in a conscious friendship uncoupling with at least a dozen of the signatories. Such is the price of profligacy and...

    A Black Lives Matter protester vowed to vindictively call Child Protective Services (CPS) against a white mother who was merely trying to shepherd her children into church. Black Lives Matter recently harassed churchgoers in Troy, New York Calling CPS against law-abiding parents is a common leftist intimidation tactic that places their targets in the system, liable to lose their kids if CPS plays along. BLM harassing people walking into church! How far are we going to let them go with this crap? BLM has done nothing to help anyone or any cause! They are causing racism, dividing and making people...
  • SCOTUS Decision Allowing Religious Exemptions On Birth Control Is A Big Win For Religious Liberty

    The Federalist ^ | July 8, 2020 | Paulina Enk
    In a major win for religious liberty, the Supreme Court ruled 7-2 on Wednesday that employers with moral or religious objections would be exempt from the federal mandate that requires company health insurance to cover birth control. The case was a consolidation of The Little Sisters of the Poor v. Pennsylvania and Trump v. Pennsylvania, both of which sought to alter the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA). While the bill itself had no requirements for contraceptive access being guaranteed, this became mandatory through interim final rules (IFRs). While Churches have always been exempt...

    The case against Michael Flynn is a corpse. It’s dead. There is no case and yet, this legal circus continues. The former national security adviser under President Trump was the victim of a political assassination attempt. He survived, but the damage is done. Flynn was one of the boogeymen in the Trump-Russia collusion allegation, which was exposed as a total myth. Not shocking since zero evidence of collusion was ever unearthed in that effort by members of the liberal media or Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s hyper-partisan investigative team. It doesn’t mean that they didn’t try—they did—but came up empty.  The...

    For months, Governor Jared Polis and other state officials have been accused of picking winners and losers through public-health orders announced to stop the spread of COVID-19. Polis's decision to shut down bars and clubs statewide mere weeks after their limited reopenings has renewed that criticism — and it's likely to continue with news that he's now extended Colorado's emergency order to thirty days from July 6 ... Now comes more fuel for the fire: a just-released study that found Colorado has the second-most restrictive COVID-19 rules among the fifty states and the District of Columbia. ... Colorado's current overall...

    American Thinker ^ | July 8, 2020 | Gary Gindler
    Let's start with a series of rhetorical questions related to the upcoming presidential elections: – Does a broken storefront add votes to the Democrats? – Does a burning car add votes to the Democrats? – Does a killed or wounded policeman add votes to the Democrats? – Does a toppled statue add votes to the Democrats? – Does an "autonomous zone" add votes to the Democrats? – Does a demolished synagogue or a destroyed church add votes to the Democrats? Simple human logic suggests that the answers to all these questions are negative. Why do Democrats do all of this?...

    Many American colleges and universities are considering virtual or hybrid education models for the upcoming Fall semester, due to the COVID-19 precautions. Enter the Immigration Customs and Enforcement Agency (ICE), which announced Tuesday that, if schools opt to cancel in-person classes, their international students will be forced to leave the U.S. in the midst of a global pandemic. According to statistics from the 2018-2019 school year, over 1 million international students will be impacted by the policy. Students and professors alike immediately denounced the xenophobic, harmful decision — and now, universities are using lawsuits and new learning models to fight...

    In the 1980s and '90s, many young girls devoured the popular book series The Baby-Sitters Club by Ann M. Martin. The novels, about a group of girls in a fictional Connecticut town who run a club of babysitters, sold millions of copies. On July 3, Netflix premiered a new series inspired by the novels. Since this is 2020, the series makes sure to check-off all the woke boxes required by leftist cultural arbiters. One of the tween girls in the series, Mary Anne (Malia Baker), babysits for Bailey (Kai Shappley), a "trans girl" who is, in fact, a biological boy...

    Everyone has seen the video that prompted the mass outpouring of anger into the streets of America. What do the body cam videos of the killing of George Floyd show that might change minds on the case? Counsel for one of the other officers on the scene submitted a motion to dismiss today, arguing that the video showed that Thomas Lane could not possibly have known that Derek Chauvin was committing a crime, let alone aid and abet it.Good luck with that motion, Earl Gray: Gray has argued in court that the case against Lane should be dismissed because...

    You should probably get used to seeing headlines like this. With the expansion of the tactic of mobs of protesters and rioters blocking streets and highways, leading to attacks on vehicles and their occupants, more and more motorists seem to be deciding to risk being taken in by the police rather than being beaten or otherwise assaulted. That means that some of them, when pinned in by an angry mob, are choosing to hit the gas and let fortune sort out the rest. That’s what happened in New York City last night. A group had moved to block off...
