Sanctifying RBG

Yesterday at the announcement of her nomination as Supreme Court Justice, Amy Coney Barrett (now called ACB) generously praised Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

She had to for political sake, but RBG didn’t really deserve it.

Fay Voshall at American Thinker writes: “Anyone who watched the lines of people who paid their respects to Ruth Bader Ginsburg as she lay in state at the Supreme Court would have noticed a peculiar atmosphere. The reactions of those filing past her coffin went far beyond ordinary, quiet, and respectful homage to the dead. Women and little girls were kneeling down before her, offering prayerful salutes and shedding tears of grief and rage. Some were almost hysterical.”

This in spite of the fact that RBG was “opposed to everything Christianity once stood for without apology: the sacredness of every human life, the sanctity of marriage, the biological distinctions of the sexes, and the integrity of the Church.”

Phyllis Schlafly said Ginsburg called for the “sex-integration of prisons and reformatories so that conditions of imprisonment, security and housing could be equal” and wanted “sex-integration of Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts” because they “perpetuate stereotyped sex roles.” She even rejected college fraternities and sororities in favor of “college social societies” and wanted Mother’s Day and Father’s Day to be celebrated together.

Voshall writes that “Ginsburg called for reducing the age of consent for sexual acts to people who are ‘less than 12 years old.’ She wrote that laws against ‘bigamists, persons cohabiting with more than one woman, and women cohabiting with a bigamist’ are unconstitutional. Further, prostitution was a consensual act, and the Mann Act was “offensive,” as such acts were to be considered “within the zone of privacy.

“We cannot praise her tenacity as a good thing. Her tenacity and those likeminded have contributed to the deaths of some 60,000,000 innocents.”

Ginsburg’s death even caused one writer to turn to Satan, as a previous entry on this blog shows.

This man has a different view:

No Baer Hug for Bret

One thing that has been good in this otherwise confounding 2020, is that Americans have clearly seen where media, politicians, religious leaders, scientists and celebrities stand.

If you had ever given some of them the benefit of the doubt, you heard from their own mouths what they believe.

Take Fox News, for instance. In particular, Bret Baier. He hinted at his affiliations in 2016 when he teamed with Megyn Kelly in the Republican debates to make Donald Trump look bad. After that, I stopped watching his Special Report, which never had the depth it had with Brit Hume and Tony Snow.

Bret likes to hide behind the ole I’m not a partisan hack sham, which is always what partisan hack shams say. He got caught the other day on Twitter, and I was astounded at the backlash.

After the Outnumbered kerfuffle with Newt Gingrich and Harrison Faulkner along with Melissa Francis (I have your full picture now, too), over George Soros, Baer tweeted, “Do you really believe that George Soros is somehow affecting or altering the programming or editorial decisions on Fox News? Really? Just want to follow the latest. Thanks”

The latest proved to be a smackdown.

That was a naive, lying dog faced pony soldier thing to say and he got called on it.

Here’s a selection:

“You can prove everyone wrong, Bret. Why not do a serious, in-depth story on how Soros and his NGO’s are funding the “Transition Integrity Project.” Thanks, in advance. Here’s a link:”

“Bret, the train wreck that occurred on Faulkner’s show Wednesday with @newtgingrich
was not made any better today, with an inadequate explanation/non-apology from Faulkner. It’s stirred up a hornet nest online and should be fully addressed before @FoxNews
loses more to @OANN.”

“Direct association w/Soros, no, he covers his tracks. OBVIOUS his Groups like Media Matters, Open Border Societies etc..are behind smear campaigns,funneling Dark Money into MSM, Local Prosecutorial Races, Antifa, BLM, March for Our Lives, Womens March etc…”

“It seemed that way with Harris yesterday. Soros’s name is dropped and somebody started screaming in her ear. What’s interesting, Fox has reported on the very thing Newt was talking about and hosts said it wasn’t true. What else should we think?”
“This is one of the weirdest exchanges I’ve ever seen on TV. @newtgingrich correctly points out that George Soros threw an unprecedented amount of money into DA races all over the country to elect radicals and Fox News basically told him to shut up. WTF?”

“This is something I would expect to see on state controlled media. In China, the screen just goes blank when there is something on foreign media that the government doesn’t want you to see. So, yeah, this looked creepy to me.”

There were lots more, but Baier didn’t seem to get the message. He replied, “Well -I haven’t changed. We are still covering news from all sides. The opinion folks are doing what they do -very well. And we are under the media microscope everyday. And we are #1 by far. So what changed? 23 years later – for me -not much.”
He goes on to say how much he’d like Biden and Woodward on his show.

Actually, the network may be No. 1, but his show is not. People prefer Tucker, Hannity and Ingraham.

This comment sums it up pretty well: “Fox is the cnn of 10 years ago”

Is This Happening Everywhere?

It has come to light that Democrat Nashville Mayor John Cooper has not been honest with his citizens about the Covid 19 numbers. In fact, the number at bars and restaurants was very low:

Is this being replicated across the country? Why is it that we receive so little information on it in Memphis? What ages are the people who get it? Where do they live? What is their gender? What is their race?

Aren’t these basic questions epidemiologists would want to know? Wouldn’t they shed light on where to attack the virus?

As Andrea Witburg at Americanthinker notes, “In Nashville, the mayor was able to push through a 34% property tax to offset lost revenue. Normally, people would have opposed that kind of dramatic increase but the lockdown made it seem necessary. The tax will undoubtedly continue long after the Wuhan virus is just a bad memory, warping the economy and keeping poorer citizens dependent on the government.”

In other words, fear makes people accept authoritarianism they would normally reject.

Country music star John Rich had this to say on Laura Ingraham last night. “Mayor John Cooper has betrayed our town. He has betrayed Music City. He is a Judas to this town. He is now the De Blasio of the south! That is what he is. He has lied to our town for months and months on end and there are real casualties with this Laura. Forget some of the big companies that have lost some money. Let’s talk about musicians. Let’s talk about bartenders and servers and security guards. All the people who work downtown in Nashville and were targeted by this Judas of a mayor… He completely gutted what drives this town which is live music and broadway downtown. And now we find out the entire thing was a lie that he put on us so we have no sympathy for him.”

He warned a class action lawsuit is coming. It should.

Fox’s Big Mistake

This video has shocked conservatives:

It shouldn’t.

Fox News daytime has been unwatchable for at least a year. Their shows and hosts do not lean conservative. They feature liberals like Marie Harf in the above video and they work to suppress anti liberal thought. Consider Shep Smith, who ruled the day for a long time on Fox, and even Donna Brazile.

Even so, it is unconscionable how swiftly and thoroughly they move to stop Newt Gingrich from even a discussion of George Soros. If you recall, Glenn Beck got ousted from Fox when he insisted on fingering the crazy billionaire.

It’s a big mistake on Fox’s part. They have smugly decided they are the only game in town. They aren’t. On broadcast One America News is nipping at their heels, as well as Newsmax.

Then there are countless YouTube channels that actually allow guests to talk more than four minutes and are unafraid to take a definitive position on issues. I and others spend some of the day tuning out broadcast and watching these. There are so many, it’s even hard to keep up.

Here’s a list of ones I am aware of and watch: Dan Bongino, Right Side Broadcasting (they cover all Trump rallies and events from beginning to end without interruption), America First with Sebastian Gorka, American Thought leaders (from the Epoch times hour long interviews with politicians, authors and experts), Bannon War Room, Blaze TV, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray Unleashed, Breitbart News, China Uncensored, Crossroads with Joshua Philip (also a source for news about China you don’t get anywhere else) and Donald J. Trump (clips and interviews).

There there is Full Measure with Sheryl Atkinson, Judicial Watch, Katie Hopkins (the brash British conservative), Michael Knowles, Mr. Reagan, Real Coffee with Scott Adams, Rebel News (a look at Canadian politics and American from a conservative viewpoint), Steven Crowder, Stu Does America, The Daily Wire (the Ben Shapiro site), The Federalist, Church Militant (about Catholics but 100% pro Trump), Taylor Marshall (also Catholic and also pro Trump), the Heritage Foundation, Verdict with Ted Cruz and Viva Frei (a lawyer who dissects current court rulings).

I’m sure I’m missing some.
That doesn’t even get into conservative talk radio.

Jack Cashill, author of Unmasking Obama and other political books, calls these networks and conservative websites the samizdat. The word refers to groups of dissidents in the Soviet Union who circumvented the party line via clandestine copying and distributing literature banned by the state. He says that conservatives in the U.S. have done the same thing to circumvent our corrupt media.

It is Cashill’s belief that the samizdat will propel Trump to victory as he says it did in 2016. Notice that Trump pays attention to these outlets. He took Joe Rogan up on the challenge to debate Biden immediately. He is aware that Rogan has the number one YouTube audience in the country, even if the mainstreamers ignore it.

Trump also gives interviews to the samizdat. He does not underestimate them as Fox News does.

For a look at what’s in store, consider how sports fans have turned away from their favorite football, baseball and basketball on networks, even as people are hungry for sports. They get it. They are not looking to be woke. They just want the game.

We just want the truth and are not getting it conventionally. Why don’t they see this?

Here’s Your White Privilege

The Marxist/Antifa/BLM people destroying our cities are not the poor, downtrodden or all black people. Most of them have never been near a ghetto. They are more likely to hang out in the Hamptons than in Harlem, evidently.

Take her for example.

Meet Clara Kraeber, “… the wealthy Upper East Sider busted during a costly night of rioting in Manhattan last week — along with images of six of her alleged comrades,” the New York Post reports.

“Kraebber, 20 — the fire-haired daughter of an architect and a child psychiatrist — appears grim-faced in the snap, posted on the NYPD News Twitter account Tuesday evening.

“Kraebber was busted on felony rioting and misdemeanor graffiti charges, according to police.

“’On Friday, September 4th, these individuals were arrested for rioting during demonstrations in Manhattan,’ police tweeted. ‘They were part of a large group breaking storefront windows. Our investigation into this incident continues.’

“The damage during the three-hour vandalism spree extended more than 2 miles, from Foley Square up to 24th Street.

“The protest was organized by groups calling themselves the New Afrikan Black Panther Party and the Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement.”

Here are the others

The mugshots, as they appear from left to right, are of Kraebber; Elliot Rucka, 20, of Portland, Oregon; Frank Furhmeister, 30, of Stuyvesant Heights; Jade O’Halloran, 30, of Crown Heights; Claire Severine, 27, of Washington Heights; Etkar Surette, 27, of Prospect Park South; and Adi Sragovilh, 20, of Great Neck.

“Rucka is the son of famed comic-book writer Greg Rucka.

“Jane Buffo, 19, of Lower Manhattan, who was also arrested, is not pictured.”

All scions of the wealthy.
