    As political forces in the United States push for strict mask mandates to fight the spread of the coronavirus, new guidance issued by the World Health Organization undermines the left’s claim that people must be forced to wear the protective equipment in public. The WHO posted the updated recommendations in a Wednesday tweet. This most recent change, which outlines when people should not wear a mask in public, follows months of inconsistent information from the group about face coverings. ... “People should NOT wear masks when exercising,” the WHO’s update reads, “as masks may reduce the ability to breathe comfortably.”...
  • Trump: There is a rise in Coronavirus cases because our testing is so massive and so good, far bigger and better than any other country. This is great news, but even better news is that death, and the death rate, is DOWN.

  • Was Beethoven Black? Twitter Debates Race of German Composer

    Twitter users are debating whether or not Beethoven was black after a blog post about the subject resurfaced online. ... In the post on The Concordian, the author said: "I am no Beethoven expert, but bringing up this topic is important. While getting to the bottom of the truth about Beethoven's race will change nothing about the supreme quality of his music, it will open up dialogue about the massive effects of European colonialism that promote racism still today. .. However, there is no evidence of Beethoven's race aside from portraits that suggest that he was white, and the blog...
  • How Twitter Censoring President Trump Over His 'They're After You' Tweet Pretty Much Proves His Point

    Townhall ^ | 07/02/2020 | Matt Vespa
    President Trump has been censored yet again, and the tweet pretty much proves his point about the nature of the bias against him. In a tweet he’s shared before, it shows a black and white picture of the president with the caption “in reality, they’re not after me. They’re after you.” You’ve probably seen this meme. It strikes at the heart of his drain the swamp mentality and the bias lobbed against him. He’s not a politician. He’s a bull in a china closet and he likes it. He wants to disrupt DC and his enemies will do all they...

    @Brady611: What an awesome fricken night in Boise Idaho!!! BLM protest downtown city hall! We out numbered them 5 to 1!!!! About 3,200 people showed up. I saw three different biker clubs, women with sidearms, everybody was Back the Blue. Just overwhelmed them. Awesome night! @Oh Scott: I was happy to welcome the group of patriots with my blue bullhorn. As I told the proud Americans "We aren't about to put up with any looting or violence in our great state". Also see #BoiseProtests for the radical communist side. They claim a 2:1 advantage over the "counter protestors."

    Fox News host Tucker Carlson delivered a stark warning Tuesday concerning the direction of the country if Republicans were unwilling to stand up and fight. “Non-Democrats in America are in peril,” Carlson said as he opened his show with a monologue addressing the Democratic Party’s plan — from allowing illegal immigrants to vote, to packing the Supreme Court — in order to seize and keep control.

    Sitting here watching returns in Western Colorado. Scott Tipton is on the verge of defeat to newcomer, "Shooter's Grill" restaurant owner and western Colorado resident Lauren Boebert. Last check, it was sitting at Boebert 54.34%, Tipton at 45.66%. This is a major shift towards draining the swamp of do nothing establishment leeches to installing newy, freedom oriented blood. On my local level, former State Representative Ray Scott is losing to newcomer Cody Davis. Unfortunately, former Governor John Hickenlooper won the anti-American leftist liberal vote thanks to the front range, or as we call it over here, New Commieforniastan. The front...

    The Washington Post's opinions editor has been accused of inciting violence for tweeting that white women are 'lucky' black people are 'just calling them Karen's and not calling for revenge'. Karen Attiah posted the tweet on Sunday, saying: 'The lies and tears of white women hath wrought; the 1921 Tulsa massacre, murder of Emmett Till, exclusion of black women from feminist movements, 53% of white women voting for Trump. 'White women are lucky that we are just calling them Karens. And not calling for revenge.' Later, in her comments section, she doubled down on the remark, saying: 'I'm just saying....

    Of course we’re talking about the St. Louis couple who brandished firearms at “peaceful protesters” who knocked down a gate and marched through their private property. Plenty of lefties can’t believe that they haven’t been arrested yet for pointing guns at people, but as The Federalist reports, left-wing think tank president Jerry Taylor wouldn’t have waited for the police. In a now-deleted tweet, he says he would have rushed the couple, beaten their brains in, and not apologized either.

    SAN FRANCISCO — Reddit, one of the largest social networking and message board websites, on Monday banned its biggest community devoted to President Trump as part of an overhaul of its hate speech policies. The community or “subreddit,” called “The_Donald,” is home to more than 790,000 users who post memes, viral videos and supportive messages about Mr. Trump. Reddit executives said the group, which has been highly influential in cultivating and stoking Mr. Trump’s online base, had consistently broken its rules by allowing people to target and harass others with hate speech. “Reddit is a place for community and belonging,...

    Jim Jordan, Elise Stefanik and Nikki Haley all have something in common, other than a strong affection towards President Trump. The three Republican politicians joined social media app Parler this week, adding their profiles to a site that’s emerged as the new digital stomping ground for anti-Twitter conservatives. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas arrived earlier this month and Rep. Devin Nunes of California started in February, while Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky has been a member since 2018, the year the app launched. “It’s about time y’all joined me on @parler_app,” Paul tweeted on Wednesday. “What’s taking the rest of...
