  • Twitter censors WSJ article on Kim Klacik, ‘A Black Lives Matter Republican’

    NOQ Report ^ | OCTOBER 21, 2020 | Scott Boyd
    There is nothing more terrifying to a Democrat than a person of color who refuses to abide by the leftist narrative. That’s why Kimberly Klacik is such a threat to their narrative. It’s also the reason Twitter is censoring an article about her from the Wall Street Journal. While some may note that “censorship” is too strong of a classification since Twitter isn’t completely blocking the article, it’s fair because it reduces the reach dramatically. The story has been Tweeted by a dozen or so people and retweeted by hundreds. Considering the subject matter, it’s very likely that without the...
  • Wall Street Journal: Biden’s COVID-19 Plan “Is Mr. Trump’s Plan Without The Bluster”

    The Editorial Board of the Wall Street Journal published an op-ed Friday evening which served to fact check Joe Biden’s plan to combat COVID-19 if he is elected as president in November. The board calls Biden’s plan a me-too COVID plan. While the media couldn’t say enough glowing words about Slow Joe’s acceptance speech at the Democrat convention, what came through to some of us is that there are no new ideas or plans coming from the Biden campaign on pretty much any subject. That is especially true when it comes to how a Biden administration would handle the...
  • CATO Economist SLAMS WSJ’s Sloppy Arguments Pushing More Federal State Bailouts

    One top CATO economist is letting The Wall Street Journal have it for pushing more federal bailouts for states and using liberal spin to justify it. CATO Director of Tax Policy Studies Chris Edwards slammed The Journal for pushing “a biased news story regarding state budgets” in a piece headlined “Error and Spin in Wall Street Journal Budget Article.” The Journal’s story, headlined “Coronavirus-Hit State Budgets Create a Drag on U.S. Recovery,” reflects “only Keynesian thinking, exaggerates the plight of governments, and only quotes analysts in favor of more federal bailouts,” according to Edwards.
  • Mayhem Continues, Protest Narrative Crumbles: Looters rampage in Chicago and arson returns in Portland.

    Wall Street Journal ^ | August 10, 2020 | WSJ Editorial Board
    The press has been playing defense for Portland anarchists for weeks, suggesting riots and arson against a federal courthouse were provoked by federal agents protecting it. When the Trump Administration lowered the profile of its agents in an agreement with the state government, the media’s protest cheerleaders were eager to report that the real cause of the violence had gone away. “Trump ordered federal forces to quell Portland protests. But the chaos ended as soon as they left,” said a July 31 Washington Post headline. So much for that. Over the weekend Portland police were forced to declare two riots....
  • We've reached the endgame: Bezos 'in talks' to turn shuttered department stores into Amazon warehouses

    Amazon is reportedly in talks with realtors to buy and remake the US locations of bankrupt Sears and JC Penney into Amazon fulfillment centers. The Wall Street Journal cites sources familiar in reporting that Simon Property Group, a commercial retailer specializing in mall locations, was in talks with the Bezos' bunch to sell the now-vacant department store buildings. These will then be used as smaller, local versions warehouses for Amazon to store products before shipping out to customers. Neither Amazon nor Simon Property Group responded to a request for comment on the report. Those unfamiliar with the 1970s-1990s heyday of...
  • Another company stands up to the cancel culture mob: First, Goya Foods, Then Red Bull, Now Kudos to the Wall Street Journal!

    American Thinker ^ | 07/25/2020 | Andrea Widburg
    For quite a while now, we've been treated to the demoralizing and unedifying spectacle of media outlets and corporations bowing down to the mob's cancel culture demands. Authors have been banned, editors fired, Trader Joe's products renamed, statues dragged down, and much more, merely because spoiled, entitled, college-educated snowflakes, secure in their victimhood, have said words or products hurt their feelings and made them feel "unsafe." Thankfully, after the first shock of this Maoist attack on American institutions, some are beginning to recover their backbones. First, Goya Foods stood up to the mob. Then Red Bull refused to back down....

    Archaeologists in Mexico found stone tools and other signs that people were living in North America 30,000 years ago, much earlier than widely believed, according to new research reshaping the debate over the origins of people in the Americas.In a study reported Wednesday, scientists led by archaeologist Ciprian Ardelean at Mexico’s University of Zacatecas said that they had unearthed hundreds of unusual green limestone spear points, blades and other implements from a lofty cavern in the central Mexican highlands. For wandering hunter-gatherers, the cave served as a makeshift tool shed possibly beginning as early as about 33,000 years ago, the...

    In late June, ESPN aired a special in primetime entitled The Undefeated Presents Time for Change: We Won’t be Defeated, reflecting on the sports world after the killing of George Floyd. According to a report by Joe Flint of the Wall Street Journal, Sage Steele told ESPN president Jimmy Pitaro that she believes she was frozen out of this special by anchors Elle Duncan and Michael Eaves, and that she felt this was reflective of a divisive work environment. Per the WSJ story: Ms. Steele said colleagues told her she was considered for the special by the executive in charge,...

    Center for Immigration Studies ^ | June 24, 2020 | Todd Bensman
    Evidence continues to mount that spikes in Covid cases in U.S. border states are due to successive waves of infected people fleeing Mexico's dysfunctional and overwhelmed hospitals to get American medical care at least as much, if not more than, to the re-opening of those states' economies. This matters because officials in border states are beginning to base policy decisions for partial lock-downs on grounds that lifting them is what caused the spikes... Earlier, the Washington Post, the New York Times, and the Wall Street Journal all reported a crush of infected people from Mexico coming over the Arizona and...

    A federal judge cast doubt on Bayer AG ’s proposal to neatly resolve all future lawsuits over the safety of its Roundup weedkiller, potentially snagging the German company’s attempts to move past the massive liability. Bayer said recently it would pay up to $10.9 billion to settle tens of thousands of current Roundup cases and create a system for handling future cases. The deal came after three juries in recent years awarded large verdicts to plaintiffs alleging Roundup caused non-Hodgkin lymphoma, spooking investors. U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria in San Francisco, who must approve the class action, said Monday he...

    Senator Ted Cruz blasted anarchists tearing down statues, adding later that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the mob are the exact same extremist base Joe Biden is petrified of upsetting. Cruz (R-TX) was responding to Kimberly Strassel, a Wall Street Journal columnist who reported that Biden, when pressed on the topic of monuments suggested the decision should rest with local governments, but that he “won’t condemn people lawlessly tearing them down.” The Republican congressman replied that Biden’s lack of condemnation is no surprise. “Dems support the riots. The vandals. The anarchists,” he wrote on Twitter. “That’s their base. And they’re terrified...

    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...

    CHAZ the acronym for the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone,” an area of about six blocks in Seattle ceded to protesters demanding justice for George Floyd after several tense nights of standoffs with police in early June. (Some residents subsequently pushed for a rebrand from CHAZ to “CHOP,” the Capitol Hill Organized Protest.) However these people showed a huge disrespect for our country and their time is almost done, but they are not ready to give up yet. Crews arrived with heavy equipment arrived early Friday at Seattle’s “occupied” protest zone, apparently ready to dismantle barriers set up by demonstrators, but...

    One of China’s main propaganda outlets has paid American newspapers nearly $19 million for advertising and printing expenses over the past four years, according to documents filed with the Justice Department. China Daily, an English-language newspaper controlled by the Chinese Communist Party, has paid more than $4.6 million to The Washington Post and nearly $6 million to The Wall Street Journal since November 2016, the records show. Both newspapers have published paid supplements that China Daily produces called “China Watch.” The inserts are designed to look like real news articles, though they often contain a pro-Beijing spin on contemporary news...

    The Wall Street Journal's editorial board is asking why former President Obama commented on the Justice Department's decision to drop the case against former national security adviser Michael Flynn, asking "what he's really worried about." "Barack Obama is a lawyer, so it was stunning to read that he ventured into the Michael Flynn case in a way that misstated the supposed crime and ignored the history of his own Administration in targeting Mr. Flynn," the editorial board wrote. "Since the former President chose to offer his legal views when he didn’t need to, we wonder what he’s really worried about."

    An interview obtained by The Federalist reveals how the Wall Street Journal badly misled Americans about HHS Secretary Alex Azar's response to the coronavirus outbreak. Reporters get things wrong in articles all the time, it’s an imperfect world, but usually the most glaring mistakes don’t appear in the first sentence. In a recent Wall Street Journal article about House and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Alex Azar, this dubious feat was actually accomplished.“On Jan. 29, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar told President Trump the coronavirus epidemic was under control,” reads the first sentence of the WSJ report.Michael Caputo, the...

    Today's AM Joy show on MSNBC provided a virtual parody of liberal-elite condescension to Trump supporters. Joy Reid kicked things off by finding it "confusing" that Trump's populist base supports him despite supposedly not "getting anything economically out of this plutocracy." It's a recycling of the old liberal complaint of "What's the Matter with Kansas?": those poor, benighted cultural conservatives allegedly voting against their own interests (against redistributing all the wealth). Ultraliberal writer Jane Mayer of The New Yorker [infamous for co-authoring a book trashing Justice Clarence Thomas with Jill Abramson while they were reporters at The Wall Street Journal]...

    Beijing has lied about the coronavirus from the start, while here in the West our corporate media has actively and enthusiastically spread its lies to households across the free world. But now that news of China’s lies is beginning to seep out, will it make a difference? Will there even be corrections? Don’t count on it.Even before reports on incinerators “working around the clock,” massive orders for urns, government bribes to keep mourners quiet, and total government censorship, China’s lies were obvious. Even before China concealed the outbreak, blamed the U.S. military, and expelled foreign reporters, their lies were obvious.Their...

    MILAN—In the town of Coccaglio, an hour’s drive east of here, the local nursing home lost over a third of its residents in March. None of the 24 people who died there were tested for the new coronavirus. Nor were the 38 people who died in another nursing home in the nearby town of Lodi. These aren’t isolated incidents. Italy’s official death toll from the virus stands at 13,155, the most of any country in the world. But that number tells only part of the story because many people who die from the virus don’t make it to the hospital...
