Prolonged Lockdown Is Killing People" -- Dr. Scott Atlas
The prolonged lockdown . . . is killing people. We don't just talk even about the medical care that's been missed. We're not just talking about the unemployment-related suicides and other harms.
We have the latest data from the CDC that showed that there's a massive increase in people with psychiatric illness and depressive and anxiety disorders.
There is no such thing as a free lockdown.
Who buys the bricks for riotous protesters?
It's worth noting that if you decide to donate to BLM through their website, you will get taken to the website of ActBlue, which collects donations for Democratic Party candidates.
That doesn't necessarily mean the BLM takes all its marching orders from the DNC, but it certainly implies that they are part of the same nexus of political activism.
At first, I didn't want to believe that the protests were some kind of Democrat-orchestrated "color revolution," but there are too many signs that it is just that, the biggest being the pallets of bricks that mysteriously show up in areas of cities where protests are happening.
"The same nexus of political activism." Huh.
Kenosha and BLM's Perpetual Outrage Cycle -- Michelle Malkin
Here we go again: Manufacture. Rinse. Repeat.
Everyone knows the cycle. Everyone knows it ends with false and incomplete narratives eventually being debunked by actual facts.
Everyone knows, yet on and on and on it goes.
Step 1: Spread out-of-context video clip of Black man subdued or shot by white cops across national media airwaves and social media platforms.
Step 2: Riot.
Step 4: Riot.
Step 7: Burn, loot and maraud nationwide.
Step 8: Demand more funding for "restorative justice," "alternative" policing, sensitivity training and "anti-racism" programs.
Step 9: Bury all evidence of justified police action while screaming, "Racism!" ever louder.
Step 10: Lie in wait for the next opportunity to return to Step 1.
I've been covering this self-destructive ritual in American life since the very beginning of my journalism career in 1992, when the Rodney King beating video led to the acquittal of four Los Angeles police department officers, which led to the L.A. riots (60 killed, 2,000 injured, $1 billion in damages, $700 million in federal aid), which led to a federal civil rights settlement for King worth $4 million and prison sentences for two of the cops despite their previous acquittals.
When will it ever end?
