Walter Williams Speaks of the Sloppy Language of the Left

by Walter E. Williams:

Language and Thought

Seventeenth-century poet and intellect John Milton predicted, “When language in common use in any country becomes irregular and depraved, it is followed by their ruin and degradation.” Gore Vidal, his 20th-century intellectual successor, elaborated saying: “As societies grow decadent, the language grows decadent, too. Words are used to disguise, not to illuminate.” Sloppy language permits people to get away with speaking and doing all manner of destructive nonsense without being challenged. read more

Video Podcast – Chicago Pandemic Boondoggle – Real Covid Numbers

by: Brent Smith

Chicago currently has about $10 billion in revenue to pay its $46.5 billion worth of bills.

That amounts to each taxpayer owing $39,400. Yet somehow they found $66 million to build a special Covid-19 field hospital. The hospital stayed open for 22 days and saw a whopping 38 patients. That’s $1.7 million per patient.

We already know that Covid-19 kills a disproportionate amount of elderly, but the real numbers are staggering. After hearing the numbers you should wonder why officials still insist on putting such restrictions on school and college openings.

Video Podcast – FEMA says no money for Minneapolis – Mark Meadows Runs a Sting

by: Brent Smith

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) tells the Mayor of Minneapolis and Governor of Minnesota that it will get no federal money to rebuild the city after the rampant destruction caused by BLM/Antifa rioters. FEMA money is used for natural disasters and this surely isn’t a “natural” disaster.

White House Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows, has been charged with flushing out various leaks to the leftist press by individuals within the Executive Branch. Good for him.

I add that not only should he do that, but if the president wins a second term, he should almost completely clean house of all the leftist holdovers and deep state operators. read more

What’s Really Wrong in Black America

from Walter Williams:

Walter E. Williams bio photoThe True Plight of Black Americans

While it might not be popular to say in the wake of the recent social disorder, the true plight of black people has little or nothing to do with the police or what has been called “systemic racism.” Instead, we need to look at the responsibilities of those running our big cities.

Some of the most dangerous big cities are: St. Louis, Detroit, Baltimore, Oakland, Chicago, Memphis, Atlanta, Birmingham, Newark, Buffalo and Philadelphia.

Video Podcast – Trump Covid Treatment Might Just Work – Left Doesn’t Care about Coronavirus

by: Brent Smith

President Trump has promoted the safe and prescribed use of hydroxychloroquine for months now and the left has mocked and derided him for. The WHO even halted a study of it due to the results of research showing that the drug not only doesn’t work but is unsafe and deadlier than first thought. But now they’ve changed their tune.

Leftist politicians have reveled in their new-found command and control authority over the public regarding the pandemic. But now, all of the sudden, they’ve found a new cause that has pushed the “killer” virus to back of the bus (so to speak).

I explore the hypocrisy of the left regarding the onset of protesters and rioters that show no regard for the left’s social distance edict. It’s like the politicians no longer care about the pandemic. read more

WND Exclusive – Hey, lefties, ‘safety’ is not a natural right

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Cities and counties have defied the federal government for years, proclaiming them to be sanctuary cities, where illegal aliens have been shielded from constitutionally created federal laws.

This lawless behavior is seen as OK and is actually encouraged by leftist political activists, politicians and hacks.

On the flip side, “The City of Atwater has declared itself a ‘sanctuary city’ for all businesses, allowing owners to open despite the state of California’s stay-at-home order amid the coronavirus pandemic,” writes ABC30.

This behavior, however, is decidedly not OK – at least not to the left.

See, whether it’s legal, constitutional or simply a matter of right or wrong is of no concern to these leftists. To the average leftist it’s whatever “feels” right that counts.

But to the authoritarian statist politician or bureaucrat, it’s much more. A cause, whatever it is, is useless to them if it doesn’t advance their agenda. And that agenda is always the same – the desire to gain and retain more power and control. read more

Air Jordons Smash Auction Records

The1985 Air Jordan 1 Vintage Originals were produced for Jordan in the white, black and red of his Chicago Bulls, and were the colourway he wore most often on court. In 1984, Nike gave Jordan a signature line of shoes and clothes – a crucial, unprecedented move to entice Michael Jordan to sign with Nike. Produced between February to April 1985, Jordan wore this pair of Air Jordan 1s during an early, pivotal point of his career, catalysing an unprecedented sales spike and paving the way for Scottie Pippen, Penny Hardaway, Charles Barkley, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant and LeBron James to have their own signature shoes … and ultimately for the birth of sneaker culture.

Street Artist Fights Back Against Lockdown

from Breitbart:

Sabo Street Art Calls Out California, L.A. Coronavirus Lockdown Overreach

Unsavory Agents

The Los Angeles street artist known as Sabo is no fan of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic and has plastered the L.A. area with posters depicting the Democrat governor as a character out of American Psycho.

Sabo put up his latest street art series in Venice Beach, Hollywood, and other high-traffic destinations around L.A. County. One poster shows Gov. Newsom as the Christian Bale character from the 2000 movie American Psycho, renamed “California Psycho.” read more

Flatten the Carbon Curve

Just when Americans are beginning to see a sliver of light at the end of the coronavirus tunnel – just as some businesses are coming back online and the authoritarian Governors can see a bit of power and control slipping away, an old stalwart crisis is waiting in the wings. But there’s a refreshing new take on this aging crisis.

I’m talking about one of the left’s go-to crises.

No, it’s not racism. It’s not social justice. It’s not gender inequality, or income inequality. Sorry – I forgot how many go-to crises the left has.

No, I’m talking about Climate Change.

But how do you make such a tired old crisis like Climate Change seem new? I mean, it’s been around for several decades now. There’s nothing new about it. The “experts” haven’t discovered anything new or Earth shattering. The climate is just chugging along as it always has. It cools off and warms up at relatively regular intervals, just as it has for centuries. read more

Video Podcast – Barber Tested Positive – A Nation of Wussies – Don’t Trust the Numbers

by: Brent Smith

A barber working at a barbershop in a New York suburb that had been operating in defiance of the state’s close order has tested positive for Covid-19, according to Ulster Country health officials.

So what? What does even mean? What are the details?

Sunlight has been proven to shorten the life of coronavirus. But rather than encourage us to go outside, many would we stay locked up.

Don’t just take Covid-19 numbers at face value. They really tell us nothing. read more
