Facebook’s Ties to George Soros

from Judicial Watch:

Most of Facebook Censorship Board Has Ties to Leftwing Billionaire George Soros

The recently appointed Facebook oversight board that will decide which posts get blocked from the world’s most popular social networking website is stacked with leftists, including a close friend of leftwing billionaire George Soros who served on the board of directors of his Open Society Foundations (OSF). Judicial Watch conducted a deep dive into the new panel that will make content rulings for the technology company that was slammed last year with a $5 billion fine for privacy violations.

Is Coronavirus becoming another Settled Science?

from the American Thinker:

Why the Left is Weaponizing Science

According to some “experts,” science can sometimes be settled, meaning that in certain areas of study, the evidence has been deemed so overwhelming and indisputable that further debate is not only unnecessary, it is forbidden. Only one interpretation of this evidence is possible. However, science is really nothing more than a tool, developed by humans for the purposes of studying our universe and the world on which we live. And scientists are human beings, which means they are prone to making mistakes. It would be just as silly to genuflect as a show of reverence to science as it would be for a carpenter to worship his hammer. It is helpful to remember that even the person who graduates from medical school at the very bottom of the class has still earned the right to be called “doctor.” read more

“Yikes” – Biden’s was not a Perfect Conversation

from the American Spectator:

The Telephone Bill Comes for Sundown Joe

You’ve likely never heard of Andriy Derkach, and that’s all right. If the Democrat Party and their media allies get their way, you’ll never hear of him again.

But Derkach, a former Ukrainian intelligence officer trained in Moscow and a member of the Ukrainian Parliament aligned with the party of Russia-friendly former leader Viktor Yanukovych, dropped a major bombshell Tuesday in a press conference in Kiev, releasing audiotapes of phone calls which seem very much like they include conversations between another Ukrainian leader, Petro Poroshenko, and former Secretary of State John Kerry and Vice President Joe Biden in 2016.

Those audiotapes, which Derkach says he received from “investigative journalists” — it’s OK to call his sources spies — do not present, to put it kindly, Biden in a good light. The material they contain is apparently the same stuff that Rudy Giuliani was so fired up about after he made his trip to Ukraine late last year; Derkach was one of the people Giuliani met with. read more

The Lie Regarding Covid-19 Deaths

from the Blaze:

San Diego official reveals only six of county’s nearly 200 COVID-deaths are ‘pure, solely coronavirus’ deaths

‘I believe we can keep people safe and responsibly open our businesses’

San Diego County Supervisor Jim Desmond is pushing back against California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom’s stay-at-home order, revealing that most of his county’s coronavirus-deaths were not directly caused by the virus.

In a radio interview last week, Desmond said only six of the COVID-19 deaths in his county were “purely, solely” from coronavirus, the San Diego Tribune reported. read more

A Force Fed Call to Prayer

by: Brent Smith

Scroll Down for Audio Version

A good portion of America is still hopelessly stuck at home. Maybe you’re a single Mom or Dad, already going crazy, with maybe a house full of children who would normally be in school. You love your family – your children, but honestly, this stay at home thing is wearing a bit thin.

And I forgot to mention – you’re a leftist and an atheist – maybe living in say … Minneapolis.

And then, imagine if you will, this begins.

At 5:15 in the morning, as you and your entire family are sound asleep, you are abruptly awakened by the droning of a Christian Minister and the shriek of a Church choir. And for 3 to 5 minutes, 5 times a day, every day – at sunrise (pre-dawn) midday, afternoon, sunset, and night, this goes on.

You have to endure shouting and singing about how great God is.

How is this happening? I’m trapped at home having to endure this day in and day out.

You’re an atheist! Heck, even the sight of a religious symbol like a cross displayed in a public place gives you the heebie geebies! And now your local government officials – the Mayor and city council – leftists just like you, or so you thought, have given special permission to these bible thumpers to broadcast their myopic message, via loudspeakers, all over the city? read more

Turns Out Cultural Appropriation Isn’t Bad – If You’re a Democrat

from the Washington Free Beacon:

Rep. Mucarsel-Powell’s Problematic Costume Choices Aren’t A Problem

Even Democrats deserve the right to culturally appropriate

Freshman representative Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (D., Fla.) appears to gain enjoyment from the appropriation of different cultures, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. Even Democrats deserve the right to culturally appropriate, so long as they aren’t blatantly racist about it (sorry, Ralph Northam).

Social media posts reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon appear to show Mucarsel-Powell successfully appropriating Indian culture. The answer to your question is: Both.

One image shows Mucarsel-Powell enjoying a Bollywood-themed 40th birthday celebration in 2011. Yes, there’s a dot on her forehead, but who cares? She looks great, and will only turn 40 once. Congrats!

Another (undated) image shows the congresswoman posing in costume as the other kind of Indian—or indigenous person of North America, in the politically correct parlance of our times. She looks very happy, and the feather in her headdress stands tall and firm like a beacon of freedom. It turns out Democrats are capable of embracing and promoting freedom, even if their party opposes it on all fronts.

Mucarsel-Powell’s companion is dressed as a ballerina, which is quite boring in comparison. A ballerina has never been featured on U.S. currency, for example, and that’s probably for the best.

Coronavirus Silver Lining

Well – if there is such a thing as a silver lining to the Covid-19 pandemic, this is it.

For decades, conservatives have been complaining about Big-Education. Unfortunately, we’re the only ones who are.Now, just maybe things will be forced into change,

from the Federalist:

Why It’s A Good Thing Coronavirus Will Mow Down Many Colleges

If this virus leads to tightening academic grants, defunding activist departments, making students more fiscally responsible, and shuttering nonessential bureaucracy in higher ed, then that’s a good thing.

An average higher education scholarship is about $2,000 a month. The average salary of a gender studies professor is about $100,000 a year. The average publication cost of an academic journal of women’s or fat studies (yes, it exists) is similar.

The average annual tuition for a student pursuing these courses while borrowing money from taxpayers, much never to be paid back, is about $25,000. The University of Michigan, for example, pays a diversity bureaucrat about $385,000 annually. What do they do, you wonder? They teach compulsory courses on diversity, like this one at the University of Mississippi. read more

Now May Not be the Best Time to Come Out

Although this may not be the best time to share this potentially painful reality, being that everyone is already on edge being forcibly cooped up because of the virus, sometime you just have to do what you have to do.

But still – fair warning if you finally summon the courage to tell your leftist family that you’ve gone over to the conservative dark side and worse, are a supporter of the SECOND AMENDMENT.

Our buddies at Black Rifle Coffee let us know what we may likely be in for as they play out the following “real life” scenario: read more

by: Brent Smith

Is a Good Guy with a Gun Really a Good Guy?

A good guy (or girl) with a gun will stop a bad guy with a gun. It happens quite a lot, but isn’t often reported on.

However, many otherwise well meaning liberals simply don’t agree with this premise. Mostly because of the echo-chambers they live in. No one they know owns guns and they’ve been taught that, without exception, guns are bad, and only bad come from owning a gun.

But Will Witt was brave enough to venture out into the city of Pasadena, California to speak to liberals about the “good guy with a gun” statement.

It all begins rather predictably, as the interviewers all agree that guns have no place in society – that there are no good guys with guns.

But when presented with a scenario or two, most of the liberals, having never heard a reasoned argument from the right, began to rethink their positions.

Seeing them begin to question their own beliefs about guns is fascinating and shows that speaking with liberals one on one, without the “mob” distraction, can actually be quite constructive.
