  • No, Sen. Ron Johnson Didn’t Promote A ‘Conspiracy Theory’ About The Capitol Riot: I identified four groups that appeared to have planned for violence in advance.

    The Federalist ^ | 03/01/2021 | J. Michael Waller
    Sen. Ron Johnson was one of the first senators to suspect the riot had been planned. In a Federalist article, I identified four groups that appeared to have planned for violence in advance.“Facts are stubborn things,” John Adams famously said as the lawyer defending the British soldiers involved in the 1770 Boston Massacre, “and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.”More than 250 years later, The Federalist provided an eyewitness account of events outside the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol. From the Washington Post...

    If this result surprises you, you haven’t been paying attention. – It is no secret that the Republican Party establishment has coalesced behind former Virginia Governor and UN Ambassador Nikki Haley as its’ preferred GOP presidential nominee for 2024. Haley is a consummate creature of the DC Swamp, a RINO at heart who would be very easy for party insiders and funders to manipulate as president. She is basically the female version of Jeb! Bush. But Amb. Haley will have a very steep hill to climb in order to become the 2024 nominee, if the results of yesterday’s CPAC Straw...

    Before we get into the rest of this, I wanted to be sure you saw this clip of an insane protest at the Georgia capitol over the weekend: So, Georgia does the right thing and requires some form of ID for anyone requesting an absentee ballot, and these protesters literally go berserk. Understand that these very same people must show ID in order to fly on an airplane, go on a cruise, ride on an AMTRAK train, enroll their children in public school, rent a post office box, or write a check for Crisco and Doritos at the local WalMart,...

    Things are finally getting real for New York’s thug Governor. – In the world of the American left, no story is considered to be real until it is carried by the New York Times. Yes, that really is the demented little world your leftwing friends live in. So long as the Times is ignoring any story – like Hunter Biden’s laptop, for example – liberals, in their demented minds, believe that gives them a pass on believing it’s real. This is why your leftwing friends still don’t acknowledge the unarguable fact that high officials in the Obama/Biden administration – including...

    This seems like a big deal, doesn’t it? – If we had a functioning news media based on real standards of journalism in this country, this would not be news at all, since President Trump told us weeks ago that he had offered to call in National Guard troops to help Capitol Police control the Capitol grounds on January 6, but was turned down by Nancy Pelosi. The entirety of the corrupt national news media ignored Trump for the simple fact that statement did not conform to their preferred narrative that the Capitol riot was in fact an attempted insurrection...

    The man who originally created online encyclopedia Wikipedia is pledging to create a new platform to replace it, citing Wikipedia’s left-wing bias. Larry Sanger, who co-founded Wikipedia in 2001 before leaving the project, is describing his Encyclosphere as a networked aggregation of existing and new encyclopedia content, which will be distinguished from the colorful and unverified content slung onto Wikipedia by the site’s user base. Sanger envisions millions of people writing and submitting encyclopedia entries, which can be rated and judged for accuracy by their readers themselves, rather than the “arrogant and controlling oligarchy” Sanger maintains is running Wikipedia. Sanger...

    In the recently released movie, News of the World, Tom Hanks plays a former Civil War Captain for a regiment in Texas who now makes his living by going from town to town reading newspapers. The town folk of that era were essentially isolated from what was happening in the rest of the country and the rest of the world. If that sounds familiar, today's mainstream media readers – liberals – are in the same boat. Fed a constant diet of leftist propaganda, and excluded from what's actually occurring, most of them, sadly, have no clue as to what's going...

    Ok, so, Dr. Seuss books are now racist. – No, I’m not making that up: From the story at DailyWire: A national educators organization is telling schools to avoid reading Dr. Seuss because the children’s books allegedly have “racial undertones.” For more than 20 years, March 2 has been recognized as Read Across America Day in honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday. The reading recognition day was founded by the National Education Association — the nation’s largest labor union — in 1998. This year’s theme is “Create and Celebrate Diversity.” … The researchers surveyed 50 Dr. Seuss books and concluded that...

    The only part of “black history” liberals want to celebrate is liberal “black history.” – The people who run Amazon Prime have proved that longtime reality yet again by deactivating a documentary about Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas from its platform during Black History Month. That’s right: Black children and their parents who are interested in learning about the life of one of just two black men who have risen to hold seats on the highest court in the land cannot do so during Black History Month.

    Hey, about that $15/hr minimum wage… – It’s a funny thing about passing laws through congress: You have to have enough votes to get over all the procedural hurdles. As former senators, both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris presumably knew this throughout the campaign when they cynically promised to “immediately” raise the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour. This means they knew that any such proposal would either have to have at least 60 votes behind it in the senate, or have the senate parliamentarian rule that it would qualify under the arcane senate “reconciliation” rule that is to...

    Well, now we know why congressional Democrats want China Joe to relinquish control of the nuclear codes. – Four years of peace was just too much for Democrat voters and our corrupt news media to stand, so they did everything they could to ensure that life-long warmonger China Joe Biden was installed into the presidency. Last night, the fruits of their votes and constant propaganda operation against peacemaker Donald J. Trump paid off with the bombing of sites in Syria without any prior notice to congress or the American people, and, at least as of this writing early Friday morning,...

    Brian Stelter and Oliver Darcy, CNN's in-house cheerleaders for censoring or squelching conservative media outlets, celebrated a letter in which Democrats on the House Energy and Commerce Committee pressed TV providers to punish right-wing spreaders of so-called "misinformation." California Reps. Anna Eshoo and Jerry McNerney asked, "What moral or ethical principles (including those related to journalistic integrity, violence, medical information, and public health) do you apply in deciding which channels to carry or when to take adverse actions against a channel?" CNN exudes arrogance about its own performance, never worrying that TV providers will question the quality of its information...

    A journalist who has perpetuated multiple conspiracy theories on social media will serve as one of House Democrats’ witnesses at Wednesday’s hearing on misinformation in the media. Soledad O’Brien, a former CNN anchor turned media critic, will speak before the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Communications and Technology as part of the Congressional probe into the role misinformation in news media played in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. The hearing is being led in part by Reps. Jerry McNerney (D-Calif.) and Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.), who sent a letter on Monday to a dozen cable, satellite and streaming video companies...

    Crime Prevention Research Center ^ | 2-25-21 | Crime Prevention Research Center
    As the Crime Prevention Research Center has pointed out many times, television crime shows seem to think criminals are constantly using machine guns to commit crime. This episode of NBC’s Blacklist (Season 8, Episode 1, November 13, 2020) starts off with a machine gun being used to break a federal witness out of federal protection. In real life, criminals generally use machine guns so rarely that a 2016 survey of prison inmates only broke down the numbers for uses in crime of handguns (11.2%), rifles (0.8%), and shotguns (1.1%). There are few rifles, and the survey did not even mention...

    So, why would China Joe’s handlers be reluctant to put their sock puppet out before the American people for such a prime PR opportunity? The answer’s pretty clear, isn’t it? They don’t want the American people en masse to get a good, long look at this guy as he struggles to read text from a teleprompter. Plus, they’re scared to death about what he might blurt out in the middle of the thing, or that he might start repeating the stuff they’re saying to him through the earpiece he constantly wears out loud, something he has already done several times...

    The kids are back in the cages, but the Democrat toadies in our news media refuse to call them that now that a Democrat is in office. – One of the Trump policies that China Joe immediately reversed upon being installed in office was an immigration policy that allowed for the rapid deportation of children who had illegally crossed the border in the company of adults who are not their parents. This was a humanitarian policy that quickly reunited most of these kids with their parents rather than having them spend months in border facilities as their cases were being...

    Today’s Required Reading comes from former staffer for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, Lindsey Boylan. Ms. Boylan spent years working for Cuomo, and tells a story of a workplace environment characterized by constant bullying and sexual harassment coming from the Governor and his male staff. It is a putrid story that is all too typical in the corporate and political world: One in which a powerful man engages in the most reprehensible behavior imaginable but intimidates people whose livelihoods depend on his good graces into remaining silent and covering for him. The thing about this particular situation is that Cuomo’s...

    CNN host Brian Stelter asked a big question on his Sunday show. "What's the future of fact-checking now that Trump is out of office?" He proclaimed it was "fraught with complexity, and allegations of bias and shouts of false equivalence." This is not complex. In 2016, a Rasmussen poll found that only 29 percent of the public trusted the media's "fact-checking" of presidential candidates. There's not just "allegations" of bias but easy and daily confirmation of bias. Stelter tried to insist -- on behalf of his network -- that the fact-checking focus is now on President Joe Biden. CNN fact-checker...

    Throughout the cold blast of last week, much news was made about the fact that three of the key members of the board of the Electric (non) Reliability Council of Texas weren’t even from Texas. In fact, it turned out the chairman lives in Michigan, the vice-chair also lives out of state, along with one other member of the 15-member board. Well, guess what? Those news reports actually understated the out-of-state issue with this board. Turns out that there were no fewer than five non-Texans running Texas’s power grid. Happily, each and every one one of them resigned yesterday, along...
