FNC’s Carlson Criticizes ‘Weak’ Republicans in Time of Crisis — Accuses GOP Officials of Feeding Voters ‘Partisan Junk Food’

Tuesday, Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson opened his show with a monologue criticizing Republicans for being “weak” in this time of crisis, and with left-wing forces seizes on that opportunity.

He cited his interview with Sen. Mike Braun (R-IN) from a night earlier, and his push for so-called police reform and support of the Black Lives Matter movement as an example. However, he argued if the country were to be restored to normalcy and without an onslaught of radical policies from the Democratic Party, the Republican Party would have to rise to the occasion.

“If you want to be left alone to do your job and raise your family in this country, you will need a protector,” he said. “That protector must be the Republican Party. There are no other options. But it must be a very different kind of Republican Party.”

Carlson maintained it would be up to GOP voters to force the party’s elected officials to respond accordingly, to which he said he believed that they would. He argued Republican voters should insist on three elements. First, Carlson said that Republicans should be told to would work as hard as they can to “make America fair again” in the form of a “color-blind meritocracy.” Second, he insisted Republicans had to defend the First Amendment. Third, he said it was essential to remind Republican officials their party exists to serve the interests of “ordinary people.”


L.A. City Council Passes Motion to Replace Police with ‘Crisis Response’ for ‘Non-violent’ Calls

The Los Angeles City Council passed a motion Tuesday to replace Los Angeles Police Department officers with unarmed “crisis response” personnel to be assigned to “non-violent calls for service” such as “neighbor disputes.”

The motion, introduced by Councilmember Herb Wesson and five colleagues on the 15-member council, would:

INSTRUCT the Chief Legislative Analyst (CLA) and the City Administrative Officer (CAO), with assistance from the Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles Housing Services Authority and in cooperation with the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health and other relevant government service providers, to develop an unarmed model of crisis response that would divert non-violent calls for service (mental health crisis, substance abuse, neighbor disputes etc.) away from LAPD to the appropriate non-law enforcement agencies.

INSTRUCT the CLA to analyze and report back on programs utilized both domestically and internationally such as CAHOOTS in Eugene, Oregon as well other models of crisis intervention.

Noted environmentalist pens article apologizing for 'climate scare' foisted on public for decades — but piece is taken down reportedly just hours later

'Climate change is happening. It's just not the end of the world. It's not even our most serious environmental problem.'

Michael Shellenberger is no slouch when it comes to environmental issues.

Besides his TED talks garnering more than 5 million views, he's a Green Book Award Winner, a frequent contributor to publications such as the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, Scientific American — and he also authored "Apocalypse Never: Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All," which was released Tuesday by HarperCollins.

But Shellenberger said a Forbes article — "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare" — based on his new book was soon "censored" soon after it went up Sunday. The Daily Wire reported that his piece was taken down from the Forbes website "a few hours" after it was published. The Forbes site on Tuesday showed where Shellenberger's article should be — but only says it's "no longer active."

New York City votes to cut $1BILLION from the NYPD budget - after cops clash with protesters outside 'City Hall Autonomous Zone' for a seventh day as demonstrators say the move is not enough

New York City - which has been gripped by weeks of protests that has seen stores looted, fireworks set off, statues daubed with paint and rising crime including shootings - has voted to slash $1billion from the NYPD budget.

The cut, which comes amid a $9billion shortfall in city revenues due to coronavirus lockdown, will cancel the recruitment of 1,163 new officers, strip $484million from the overtime budget and transfer $354million to other services - including handing control of school safety officers from the NYPD to the Department of Education.

The contentious budget passed with 32 votes in favor and an unusually large 17 votes against just ahead of the midnight deadline following hours of delays - leading to criticism from all sides.


Donald Trump threatens to scrap Obama-era housing regulation intended to desegregate neighborhoods and claims it's had a 'devastating impact' on America's suburbs

Donald Trump is threatening to scrap a federal housing regulation aimed at desegregating neighborhoods, claiming the rule has had a 'devastating impact' on America's suburbs.

The president tweeted on Tuesday that he is 'studying' the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing rule imposed by the Obama administration that requires local governments that receive federal housing aid to review and fix patterns of racial disparities and discrimination.

'At the request of many great Americans who live in the Suburbs, and others, I am studying the AFFH housing regulation that is having a devastating impact on these once thriving Suburban areas. Corrupt Joe Biden wants to make them MUCH WORSE. Not fair to homeowners, I may END!' he wrote.


Trump vows to track down and jail for ten years two masked 'anarchists' filmed throwing red paint on NYC's George Washington statue in Washington Square Park - as police union says de Blasio is 'surrendering the city to lawless'

President Donald Trump has vowed to track down the 'anarchists' who tossed paint on the George Washington statue in New York's Washington Square Park on Monday as video footage of the masked suspects emerged.

'They will be prosecuted and face 10 years in Prison based on the Monuments and Statues Act. Turn yourselves in now!' Trump tweeted.


Fox cancels livestream of Louis Farrakhan's 'message' from 'God' after massive outrage

That didn't last very long

Fox network's streaming service Fox Soul will no longer air Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan's planned "message" from God.

What's a brief history of this?

The network's move follows major outcry against the previously planned airing, which was set to take place on July 4.

CNN anchor Jake Tapper and Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt were two prominent voices that spoke out against the network's decision to provide Farrakhan a platform.

In a lengthy statement, Greenblatt wrote, "Louis Farrakhan, a notorious #antisemite & #homophobe, inexplicably continues to get airtime. He repeatedly elevates hateful conspiracies. He has called Jews "termites" and the #LGBTQ+ community 'degenerates.' He deserves condemnation, not exposure."

Louis Farrakhan, a notorious #antisemite & #homophobe, inexplicably continues to get airtime. He repeatedly elevate…— Jonathan Greenblatt (@Jonathan Greenblatt)1593447134.0

Tapper added, "Farrkhan is a vile anti-LGBTQ anti-Semitic misogynist. Why is a Fox channel airing his propaganda?"


Black Lives Matter Militant Says He Wants to Murder NYPD Police Officers, ‘I Wanna Hang Him From a F*cking Tree’ (VIDEO)

A Black Lives Matter militant on Tuesday evening proudly boasted over a megaphone that he wanted to murder NYPD police officers.

“I wanna put my foot on his f*cking neck like he do us. I wanna put my foot on his back like he do us. I wanna hang him from a f*cking tree like he do us” the militant said directing his threats at the police officers.

Kids still can’t go to school and governors are locking down their states again but these Black Lives Matter terrorists are allowed to gather in the streets and threaten to murder police officers.

This is pure Marxism.

Richest Liberal Arts School In US Slashes Tuition By 15%, Cancels Athletics Program

The richest liberal arts university in the country, Williams College, has slashed tuition by 15% "in recognition of the extraordinary circumstances and of this academic year and the uncertainty we face in the year ahead," according to Bloomberg.

Williams, which has a $2.9 billion endowment (as of June, 2019) will also be canceling sports competitions and travel for the season according to a Monday statement.

For the 2020-2021 academic year, Tuition, room and board will set back rich parents and lending institutions $63,200. Of note, four years at the university will set one back more than the average mortgage balance carried by millennials.

"This reduction recognizes the fact that the pandemic and associated challenges are requiring us to cancel winter study as well as fall athletics competition and many student activities, among other opportunities that we usually encourage families to expect as part of their student’s education," said school President Maud Mandel.

Schools across the U.S. are coping with uncertainty for the year that begins in August or September as it’s largely unclear whether in-person courses will be offered given the rise in Covid-19 cases. Students at dozens of schools have already balked at the full price for last semester’s tuition with months of online classes, suing for billions of dollars in refunds. -Bloomberg


Michelle Obama Celebrates Alma Mater Princeton Removing Woodrow Wilson’s Name from School

Former first lady Michelle Obama on Monday praised her alma mater, Princeton University, for dropping 28th President Woodrow Wilson’s name from its public policy school.

“Heartened to see my alma mater make this change, and even prouder of the students who’ve been advocating for this kind of change on campus for years,” Obama wrote on social media. “Let’s keep finding ways to be more inclusive to all students—at Princeton and at every school across the country.”

Pandemic Blues: Pennsylvania Democrat Gov. Wolf Suffers 43 Percent Swing Against Approval Rating

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf, a Democrat, has suffered a significant drop in his approval rating during his continued slow-walking of the reopening of his state as the coronavirus pandemic recedes.

The 43-percent swing against Wolf’s approval rating comes in just a couple months. Back in April he was riding high as the pandemic raged through his state and across the country, but Pennsylvanians have turned against him in a big way since then.

REHOBOTH BEACH, Delaware (WPVI) -- Officials in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware say three lifeguards have tested positive for COVID-19.

Officials say they believe there had been little contact with the public and that the lifeguards spent most of their time in the lifeguard stands.

Washington & Lee Professors Call for Removal of Robert E. Lee’s Name from University

100 Professors at Washington & Lee University are calling for the removal of General Robert E. Lee’s from the university’s name. In 1870 the university’s name was changed from Washington University after Lee assumed the role of university president.

According to a report by Campus Reform, faculty members at Washington & Lee University are calling for a change to the university’s name. The report claims that more than 100 professors at the university have called on administrators to erase the university’s relationship with Robert E. Lee. The most significant change would involve changing the university’s name.


Multi-Agency Operation Searching for Missing Swimmers- South Bowers Beach

South Bowers Beach – On June 30, 2020, at 2:59 p.m., the Delaware State Police responded to the Muderkill River/South Bowers area for two swimmers that had been carried away by the strong water currents.

Troopers learned a 21-year-old male from Philadelphia, a 20-year-old male from Tennessee, a 20-year-old female from Philadelphia, and a 20-year-old male from Philadelphia traveled to the South Bowers Beach area. All four subjects entered the water to go swimming when they were pulled away from shore by the strong currents.

When this occurred, an individual onshore observed the incident, entered the water on two different occasions, and safely rescued two swimmers back to shore.

Multiple police, fire, maritime, and EMS agencies responded and conducted search and rescue operations. As of 9:00 p.m., two of the swimmers were not located, and the search efforts were suspended until July 1, 2020, when they will begin again.

At this time, this case remains active and ongoing. The identities of the victims are being withheld at this time due to notification to next to kin.

Victor Davis Hanson: Only Trump Win Can Stop ‘Cultural Revolution’

Historian Victor Davis Hanson speculated on Sunday that President Donald Trump would be reelected in November — and that only Trump’s victory could stop the “Cultural Revolution” in the country.

Dr. Hanson offered his remarks on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Sunday with host Joel Pollak.

Pollak invited Hanson’s analysis of upcoming presidential election.

“Well, I don’t think the election is anymore about just Donald Trump or Joe Biden, or Democrat or Republican, or Trump agenda versus Biden agenda,” Hanson determined. “It’s more or less whether you like the United States more as it was before Memorial Day, or whether you would prefer what’s evolving after this Memorial Day, and by that I mean, whether you think that we didn’t have to be perfect to be good, and our institutions from the founders were necessary to incorporate change in a lawful and calm peaceful manner and then they can adjudicate any particular flaws we have in society versus we have a cancer, supposedly from our founding, and that racism has to be irradiated or cut out, and if it kills us, the host, then that’s a necessary price to pay. I think it’s that stark a choice.”


Wicomico County Fair Canceled

SALISBURY, Md. - Wicomico County Fair organizers have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 event, originally scheduled for Aug. 21-23.

The decision to cancel amid the COVID-19 pandemic was made after careful consideration by the Wicomico Farm & Home Show and Wicomico County, in coordination with the Wicomico County Health Department and Department of Emergency Services.

“Canceling the event was not a decision we made lightly,” said James Simmons, Wicomico County recreation superintendent. “We know the Fair is a beloved tradition, but we had to prioritize the health and safety of fair attendees and participants.”

Fair organizers will shift their focus to the 2021 event.

“As event organizers, we are dedicated to making the best of these unfortunate circumstances,” said Zach Evans, Wicomico County Fair chair. “We can spend this extra time exploring new programming and activities to further engage members of our community.”

The University of Maryland Extension - Wicomico County 4-H will host a virtual fair for 4-H members. Updates on their virtual fair will be posted to their Facebook page.

The Wicomico County Fair is scheduled to return to WinterPlace Park in Salisbury from Aug. 20-22, 2021.

“Our team is looking forward to bringing an even bigger and better event to Wicomico County next summer,” Evans said. “Stay safe and stay tuned.”

Meet G4, a virus with pandemic potential which has just been found in China

As we’re struggling to combat covid-19, news from China indicates a growing presence of the G4 virus, a strain found in pigs that can usher the way for the next pandemic.

It looks like we are in a big soup because apparently there is a new virus that’s been doing the rounds and has the potential of causing the next pandemic.

A new flu virus strain called G4, identified among pigs in China, is now being detected amongst workers in the swine industry, according to a study published in journal PNAS. The study also says that the pathogen has “all the essential hallmarks of a candidate pandemic virus.” Now that’s horrifying.

Symptoms of the G4 virus infection are coughing and sneezing
The researchers found that the influenza virus strain, with genetic material termed as G4 genotype, has become predominant in swine populations since 2016.

According to scientists, including those from the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, these G4 viruses affect the human respiratory system and start multiplying speedily.


On Behalf Of Environmentalists, I Apologize For The Climate Scare

On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years. Climate change is happening. It’s just not the end of the world. It’s not even our most serious environmental problem.

I may seem like a strange person to be saying all of this. I have been a climate activist for 20 years and an environmentalist for 30.

But as an energy expert asked by Congress to provide objective expert testimony, and invited by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to serve as Expert Reviewer of its next Assessment Report, I feel an obligation to apologize for how badly we environmentalists have misled the public.

Here are some facts few people know:

Humans are not causing a “sixth mass extinction”

The Amazon is not “the lungs of the world”

Climate change is not making natural disasters worse

Fires have declined 25% around the world since 2003

The amount of land we use for meat — humankind’s biggest use of land — has declined by an area nearly as large as Alaska

The build-up of wood fuel and more houses near forests, not climate change, explain why there are more, and more dangerous, fires in Australia and California

Carbon emissions are declining in most rich nations and have been declining in Britain, Germany, and France since the mid-1970s

Netherlands became rich not poor while adapting to life below sea level

We produce 25% more food than we need and food surpluses will continue to rise as the world gets hotter

Habitat loss and the direct killing of wild animals are bigger threats to species than climate change

Wood fuel is far worse for people and wildlife than fossil fuels

Preventing future pandemics requires more not less “industrial” agriculture

I know that the above facts will sound like “climate denialism” to many people. But that just shows the power of climate alarmism.


Poll Finds 100% Of People Who Are James Comey Believe James Comey Did Nothing Wrong

U.S..—A new Reuters poll released Friday indicated that 100% of people who are James Comey believe that James Comey did nothing wrong as the director of the FBI.

Pollsters called exactly one guy: James Comey, and asked him how well he thought James Comey handled himself as FBI director. Of those James Comeys surveyed, 100% of them thought that James Comey's conduct was impeccable and that he served his country well.

"Yeah, James Comey? That guy is a national hero," said one of the people who were surveyed, speaking anonymously. "Of all the people in the nation who could have handled a tough situation like that, James Comey was the man to do it."

Every single person surveyed also believed that James Comey is owed an apology by those who criticized his handling of sensitive information and his violation of FBI rules. "I'm waiting," said James Comey when he saw the poll results. "This survey just shows that there is a real consensus here as to who the good guy is: me."


Univ. of Wisconsin students want Lincoln statue removed: Sure, he was 'anti-slavery,' but he wasn't 'pro-Black'

A student group at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is calling for the school to remove its popular Abraham Lincoln statue, saying the president who is known as the "Great Emancipator" is a symbol of racism.

The statue has sat atop the university's Bascom Hill for more than a century and is a popular backdrop for graduate photos, according to WISC-TV. But students in the university's black student union say that its continued presence on campus ignores the 16th president's stated opinions against racial equality.

"He was also very publicly anti-Black," Nalah McWhorter, the president of UW-Madison's black student union, said. "Just because he was anti-slavery doesn't mean he was pro-black."

"He said a lot in his presidential campaigns. His fourth presidential campaign speech, he said that he believes there should be an inferior and superior, and he believes white people should be the superior race," she added.



Written by Bill Marcy :

I just watched the Democratic leaders of Congress kneel in the halls of Congress for about 9 minutes for the death of a black man named George Floyd.
I have never seen them kneel for a fallen police Officer.

I have never seen them kneel for a fallen soldier.

I have never seen them kneel for the thousands of aborted babies

I have never seen them kneel for a murdered white man or woman.

I have never seen them kneel for the thousands of black on black murder victims

I have never seen them kneel for the thousands of elderly people that died in our nursing homes due to the Corona Virus.

I have to ask WHY are Democrats putting the life of George Floyd as more valuable than the lives of everyone else.

In fact Democrats have put so much value on the life of George Floyd they have allowed rioting looting and arson and murder and mayhem in communities.

What about the 11 police officers killed by rioters nationwide?

On the College and Silence: A letter from Hillsdale College

Editor’s note: The following is a statement from the leaders of Hillsdale College.

Amidst the events of recent weeks, a number of alumni and others have taken up formal and public means to insist that Hillsdale College issue statements concerning these events. The College is charged with negligence — or worse.

It is not the practice of the College to respond to petitions or other instruments meant to gain an object by pressure. The College operates by reasoned deliberation, study, and thought. The following observations, however, may be helpful and pertinent.

The College is pressed to speak. It is told that saying what it always has said is insufficient. Instead, it must decry racism and the mistreatment of Black Americans in particular. This, however, is precisely what the College has always said.

The College is told that invoking the high example of the Civil War or Frederick Douglass is not permitted. Perhaps it is thought that nothing relevant can be learned about justice and equality from the words and actions of great men and women in history. Instead, the College is guilty of the gravest moral failure for not making declarations about … justice and equality.

The College is told that it garners no honor now for its abolitionist past — or that it fails to live up to that past — but instead it must issue statements today. Statements about what? It must issue statements about the brutal and deadly evil of hating other people and/or treating them differently because of the color of their skin. That is, it must issue statements about the very things that moved the abolitionists whom the College has ever invoked.

It is told that failure to issue statements is an erasure, a complicity, an abandonment of principle. The silence of the College is deafening.

The College founding is a statement — as is each reiteration and reminder of its meaning and necessity. The curriculum is a statement, especially in its faithful presentation of the College’s founding mission. Teaching is a statement, especially as it takes up — with vigor — the evils we are alleged to ignore, evils like murder, brutality, injustice, destruction of person or property, and passionate irrationality. Teaching these same things across all the land is a statement, or a thousand statements. Organizing our practical affairs so that we can maintain principles of equity and justice — though the cost is high and sympathy is short — is a statement. Dispensing unparalleled financial help to students who cannot afford even a moderate tuition, is a statement. Helping private and public schools across the country lift their primary and secondary students out of a sea of disadvantages with excellent instruction, curricula, and the civic principles of freedom and equality — without any recompense to the College — is a statement. Postgraduate programs with the express aim of advancing the ideas of human dignity, justice, equality, and the citizen as the source of the government’s power, these are all statements. And all of these statements are acts, deeds that speak, undertaken and perpetuated now, every day, all the time. Everything the College does, though its work is not that of an activist or agitator, is for the moral and intellectual uplift of all.

There may be something deafening in the culture—certainly there are those who cannot hear — but it is not from the silence of the College.

There is a kind of virtue that is cheap. It consists of jumping on cost-free bandwagons of public feeling — perhaps even deeply justified public feeling — and winning approval by espousing the right opinion. No one who wishes the College to issue statements is assumed to be a party to such behavior. But the fact that very real racial problems are now being cynically exploited for profit, gain, and public favor by some organizations and people is impossible to overlook. It is a scandal and a shame that compounds our ills and impedes their correction. Hillsdale College, though far from perfect, will continue to do the work of education in the great principles that are, second only to divine grace, the solution to the grave ills that beset our times.

Fresh evidence Obama ordered up the phony Russiagate scandal

Files unsealed in the final stages of Michael Flynn’s years-long court struggle reveal a real stunner — confirmation that President Barack Obama played a central role in foisting the whole phony Russiagate “scandal” on the country.

Notes handwritten by (now disgraced) FBI agent Peter Strzok show Obama, with then-Veep Joe Biden playing along, encouraging the FBI and Justice Department’s investigation of Flynn, even as they were told his actions “appear legit.”

The document, plainly Strzok’s notes of FBI chief Jim Comey’s account, offer more details of the Jan. 5, 2017, Oval Office meeting of Obama, Biden, Comey, National Security Adviser Susan Rice and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates.

On learning that the FBI was set to close its investigation into Flynn after finding no evidence of wrongdoing, Obama and Biden suggested finding ways to keep it open, with Biden bringing up the (dead letter) Logan Act.

More, the notes have Obama ordering the continued investigation be kept secret from the incoming president and his people: “Make sure you look at things and have the right people on it.”

In the new administration, holdovers Comey and Yates did manage to take out Flynn, sidelining any effective White House oversight of the rogue Russiagate probe — and allowing it to metastasize.
