    See video at link. This guy breaks it down by the facts. (No surprises for most of us who know that BLM is being used by crazy Leftists to gain political power.) But it is nice to know that non-conservatives are starting to see the light and spread the word too. Some key takeaways from the video: 1. Donations to BLM are being funneled to ActBlue, a fundraising arm of the Democrat Party. 2. This happens every election year. The Dems get people all riled up so that they will donate more. 3. The Dems are using George Floyd's death...

    Those of us wise to the mainstream media’s dishonest and manipulative agenda tend to focus our ire on all the poisonous fake news they produce. But, as often as they disseminate outright lies, doing so isn’t by any means their main weapon of mass deception. By carefully choosing which facts to incessantly drum into our heads and which to keep hidden, the establishment press can turn the most flagrant deception into conventional wisdom without even resorting to any overt lies. Anyone who tuned into “Face the Nation” Sunday morning witnessed a particularly despicable example as host Margaret Brennan did her...

    A Nigerian influencer who posted photos of his life of luxury on private jets has been arrested amid claims of a Ł350million cyberscam. The FBI seized more than Ł30million in cash when they stormed the apartment of 38-year-old Raymond Abbas in Dubai when he was sleeping. Investigators say the Instagram star portrayed a billionaire lifestyle in order to 'lure victims from all over the world'.
  • Biden Cancer Nonprofit Paid Its Top Execs Millions. It Spent Little to Eradicate Cancer

    freebeacon.com ^ | Joe Schoffstall - June 25, 2020 5:00 AM
    Nearly two-thirds of the money the Biden Cancer Initiative spent since its founding in 2017 went toward staff compensation and six-figure salaries for top executives. The group spent far less on efforts to eradicate cancer. One of several nonprofits Joe Biden created following his tenure in the White House, the Biden Cancer Initiative paid top executives lavishly, with salaries comprising nearly 65 percent of its total expenditures. That is well above the 25 percent charity watchdogs recommend nonprofits spend on administrative overhead and fundraising costs combined. The nonprofit raised and spent $4.8 million over its two years in operation, its...

    Technology Review ^ | 6/11/20 | James Temple
    Demands for climate action have largely faded into the background as the covid-19 pandemic, the economic meltdown, and widespread protests over police brutality have seized the world’s attention. But for Rhiana Gunn-Wright, the director of climate policy at the Roosevelt Institute and one of the architects of the Green New Deal, the issues are inextricably intertwined. You can’t appreciate the real toll of the fossil-fuel sector if you’re not looking at it through the lenses of racial justice, economic inequality, and public health, she says in an interview with MIT Technology Review. People of color are more likely to live...
  • Virus to Cut American Meat Consumption For First Time in 6 Years-(GND)

    Americans are kicking their meat-eating habit, and it’s all thanks to the novel coronavirus. That’s according to researchers at the University of Missouri’s Food & Agricultural Policy Research Institute, who predict this year’s per-capita meat consumption will fall for the first time since 2014. Higher prices and a reduction in disposable income will hurt demand for beef, pork and turkey, while Americans will eat marginally more chicken. The decline is a turnaround for a nation known for its cheap burgers and chicken wings. It also comes as a survey showed that more than half of Americans think the food industry...

    President Trump tweeted a copy of a letter from John Dowd, one of the lead lawyers who represented him during the Russia investigation, addressed to former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis. The letter penned by Dowd denounced Mattis for criticizing the president’s approach to protesters in front of the White House. “The peaceful protesters near Lafayette park were not peaceful and are not real. They are terrorists using idle hate filled students to burn and destroy,” Dowd wrote, referring to the peaceful protesters at Lafayette Square who were forcefully dispersed. After the protestors fled from the square, Trump walked through the...

    If the transparently outrageous lie of police and generalized American racism is to destroy President Trump, he ought to go down with a ringing refutation of those gross falsehoods. The American people are among the planet's least racist, and blacks' comparative problems, 65+ years after the Civil Rights Act of 1964, are primarily of their own making.  If you seek the primary causes of blacks’ problems in America's complex 21st century society, look to their percentage of out-of-wedlock births (75+%), their rate of violent crime (6-8 times that of whites), their perpetrator percentage of interracial white/black crime (85- 90%), and the...

Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. The CDC has released new guidance on antibody tests, warning that they can be wrong half the time and shouldn't be used to inform important policy decisions.

    PARIS (Reuters) - A romantic dinner for two. The wine is excellent, the food delicious. It’s almost like the good old days. Except for the giant, see-through lampshades on your heads. For restaurant owners worrying how they can welcome back customers but keep them safe from COVID-19, a French designer has created a cylinder of transparent plastic that hangs from a cable on the ceiling, much like a lampshade. A scoop cut out of the back allows diner to sit and stand up without having to bend over double. Christophe Gernigon, who invented the device, called the Plex’Eat, said the...

    Think about an election where a ballot is sent to a person regardless of eligibility; to an address they may not live at anymore; signed by someone else; picked up and delivered by a Democrat campaign operative; and still counted. If Democrats got their way, that is what would happen in my home state of Nevada this June, and nationwide in November’s presidential election. This is clearly a trial run by Democrats to see if they can get away with “THE SCAM OF THE CENTURY.” With one goal in mind- stealing all future U.S. elections. Keep in mind, even Mexico...

    Scammers posing as out-of-work residents have bilked Washington state out of “hundreds of millions of dollars” in unemployment benefits, a top official said. The fraudsters submitted bogus unemployment claims under the names of tens of thousands of people whose personal information had been stolen, said Suzi LeVine, commissioner of the state’s Employment Security Department. “I realize that this is a jaw-dropping figure,” LeVine told reporters Thursday. She didn’t provide a specific dollar amount. The revelation came amid a massive surge in jobless claims during the coronavirus pandemic. More than 38 million Americans applied for unemployment benefits in the last nine weeks as lockdowns meant...

    Authorities think the group is using a database of stolen identity informationThe US Secret Service says it is investigating a Nigerian crime ring that has been using Americans’ stolen identities to file fraudulently for unemployment benefits, according to Krebs on Security. Authorities say members of the ring were able to exploit weak security measures within many states’ unemployment systems at a time when millions of Americans are applying for benefits. The agency sent a memo to field offices late last week which said the Nigeria-based ring appeared to be using a “substantial” database of stolen personal information, much of it...

    A well-organized Nigerian crime ring is exploiting the COVID-19 crisis by committing large-scale fraud against multiple state unemployment insurance programs, with potential losses in the hundreds of millions of dollars, according to a new alert issued by the U.S. Secret Service. A memo seen by KrebsOnSecurity that the Secret Service circulated to field offices around the United States on Thursday says the ring has been filing unemployment claims in different states using Social Security numbers and other personally identifiable information (PII) belonging to identity theft victims, and that “a substantial amount of the fraudulent benefits submitted have used PII from...

    The Secret Service has detected a large-scale foreign attack on the U.S. unemployment system that is processing record numbers of jobless claims amid the pandemic, according to the New York Times. In a Secret Service memo obtained by the Times, the agency described the attack as a well-organized Nigerian fraud ring that could lead to “potential losses in the hundreds of millions of dollars.” ”We are actively running down every lead we are getting,” Roy Dotson, a special agent who specializes in financial fraud at the Secret Service, said in an interview with investigators obtained by the Times.

    The huge economic impact of the coronavirus crash is being worsened by the growing role of Indian H-1B visa workers in the nation’s software industry. Americans in many states — including Florida — were left without unemployment payments for weeks when the software programs supplied to state governments by a company, which relies on Indian H-1Bs, could not handle the crush of new applicants. The failures in Ohio, Maryland, D.C., and South Carolina were all connected to one Minnesota company, Sagitec Solutions, which uses an imported workforce of H-1B workers. “Marylanders have spent hours — and days — trying to...

    (CNN) Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will co-chair a task force for Joe Biden's campaign on climate change, a source with direct knowledge of the planning tells CNN, a move that adds progressive credentials to the former vice president's effort to unify the party ahead of the general election. The group is one of several task forces being formed to bridge the divide between the polices of Biden and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who ended his White House bid last month. "I'm working with Bernie and with his people. And so, and we've made some changes. We've listened to Bernie supporters...
