Moonbat Gives Ron DeSantis Ultimate Endorsement

At this point in history, the greatest good an American could do would be to turn back moonbattery, the disgraceful disease that is snuffing out the last best hope. You can tell when moonbats feel threatened by the hyperbole with which they denounce their opponents via the subverted media. Documentary filmmaker Ken Burns just gave Ron DeSantis the ultimate endorsement:

Burns compared Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ education bill to the Soviet Union in an interview with CNN Tuesday.

The legislation, known as Florida House Bill 999, intends to defund all diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) initiatives at state colleges and ban critical race theory (CRT) and gender studies classes from the state curriculum. Burns said this move is “exclusionary” and “Soviet.”

Authoritarians don’t just sugarcoat with euphemisms. As Orwell famously illustrated, they call things the opposite of what they are. “Exclusionary” means “failing to discriminate against and demonize whites.” “Soviet” means hated by those who will never forgive Russia for rejecting a system similar to what they aspire to impose on the USA.

With a straight face, Burns declared that the Founding Fathers would not approve of DeSantis defending what is left of our country from the leftists who have been systematically destroying it so as to replace liberty with race-based neo-Marxism.

This isn’t the first time Burns has made a fool of himself while denouncing DeSantis from atop a soapbox provided by CNN:

Burns previously compared DeSantis’ relocation of voluntary migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, to the Holocaust in a Sept. 15 appearance on CNN.

The hypocrisy is staggering:

“This is what’s so disturbing about DeSantis, to use human beings, to weaponize human beings for a political purpose.”

The illegal aliens were imported by Burns’s fellow liberal elitists as a demographic weapon deployed for the political purpose of achieving single-party Democrat rule, as in white minority California. Yet it is genocide to send them to the liberal elite playpen Martha’s Vineyard, where the Moonbat Messiah himself has a mansion beside the supposedly rising sea. Despite pious sanctuary policies, the illegals were kicked off Martha’s Vineyard within 48 hours.

Burns unsurprisingly regards the release of January 6 footage that undermines the Democrat narrative to be, like DeSantis, “a huge threat to our republic”:

Along with everyone else on CNN, Burns flunks the laugh test. But he is to be thanked for reminding us how much liberals fear DeSantis.

Released Footage Explodes Phony January 6 Narrative

To this day, moonbats brandish the 2021 kerfuffle at the Capitol as proof that their opposition constitutes a Threat to Our Democracy that needs to be dealt with by repressive means. January 6 provided leftist fanatics not only with villains to hate, like Ashli Babbitt (the only person to die by violence that day), but also heroes to revere, like CNN propagandist Adam Kinzinger, a former RINO congresscritter who played a disgraceful part in the dog and pony show trials. Despite the efforts of the media and the January 6 Commission to supplant what actually happened with a narrative that helps Democrats consolidate power, the truth is emerging, thanks to suppressed video footage Kevin McCarthy made available to Tucker Carlson.

Propagandists convinced some to regard an eccentric named Jacob Chansley as an insurrectionist who threatened our form of government. Then we saw the video:

Capitol police officers were seen escorting Jacob Chansley, a Navy veteran widely referred to in the liberal media as the “QAnon Shaman,” around the building without incident. Carlson reported that officers were seen showing Chansley around, even trying to open locked doors for him. At one point, at least nine police officers were seen in close proximity to Chansley, and none of them slowed him down, as Carlson noted.

Chansley was later arrested and federally charged for “knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, and with violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.” He was sentenced to nearly four years in prison.

According to our vice president, Chansley’s crimes against America compare to Pearl Harbor and 9/11.

The media told us that Capitol Hill Police Officer Brian Sicknick was murdered by protesters who bashed in his head with a fire extinguisher. We now have further confirmation that this was a lie:

Sicknick was seen walking normally while guiding Trump supporters out of the building as he wore a helmet, which appears to contradict the media narrative that he died of a head injury.

“This tape overturns the single most powerful and politically useful lie that Democrats told us about January 6th,” Carlson told viewers.

As Carlson noted, the footage of Sicknick had an electronic bookmark in the Capitol archives, alleging the Jan. 6 House Select Committee had reviewed it and chose not to include it in its widely publicized hearings and the final report.

Sicknick, who was a Trump supporter, happened to die after the riot of a stroke. Just as they hype January 6 into another Reichstag Fire, they have tried to convert Sicknick into their answer to Horst Wessel. Democrats have no respect for the dead, having no fear of losing their most loyal voting bloc.

It is safe to assume that anything you hear from the Democratic Party/liberal media is a malevolent lie, pending evidence to the contrary.

Media analyst Mark Dice offers his take.

Chuck Schumer Calls for Federal Control of Fox News

Even Chuck Schumer has a redeeming quality. He performs a public service by being so conspicuously malevolent that no one can pretend they don’t know what they are voting for when they vote for Democrats. Similarly, CNN has the redeeming quality that it eliminates any temptation to take the “mainstream” liberal establishment media at face value. The following exchange sums up both.

CNN apparatchik: “Fox needs to reckon with the lies it has spread. … But is it the role of government officials to demand that media organizations say things or tell media organizations what to put on their airwaves?”

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY): “I think we not only have a right to tell Rupert Murdoch and Fox what to do but an obligation.”

They aren’t beating around the bush anymore. The Democratic Party/MSM axis of evil is openly working toward an anti-America in which the media can only say what it is told to say in the name of “our democracy”:

Again we are reminded that the phrase “our democracy” means nothing other than single-party Democrat rule. Auxiliary organizations like CNN are eager to impose it by any means necessary.

If CNN were in the journalism business, it would have a critical interest in defending free speech from government control. Clearly it is in a very different business.

That these creeps regard it as threatening is a ringing endorsement of Fox News. So long as Tucker Carlson is on the air rather than in an FBI interrogation room having his fingernails removed, Democrats haven’t won yet.

PBS Denounces Monopoly and Capitalism

You may wonder what your tax dollar has been paying to produce on PBS, but probably not enough to sit through the pretentious moonbattery, so here’s an update:

The newest edition of the Public Broadcasting System series American Experience delves into the history of the famous board game Monopoly in “Ruthless: Monopoly’s Secret History.”

But not content to relay the sordid history of how Parker Brothers-anointed game “inventor” Charles Darrow ripped off previous versions of the game, including a socialist version by Lizzie Magie, the makers had to shoehorn misleading anti-capitalist ideology in, falsely conflating capitalism with harmful monopoly power and reducing them both to “greed.”

Game designer Ashlyn Sparrow is provided a megaphone through which to bark the dismal nihilistic wokeism that is the creed of our rulers:

“Monopoly makes it easy to imagine that you can, you know, accomplish your goals, accomplish your vision, you can start a business, and you don’t have to think about what you look like, where you come from, that you’re from a different class, from a different race, have a different gender, have a different gender expression. You don’t have to think about any of that at all, right? And that is the problem and the myth that Monopoly continues to just push forward.”

No doubt some of the numberless federal bureaucracies comprising the Deep State are already working to put a stop to this with new board game regulations.

PBS types may hate Monopoly for being a piece of Americana, but what they really hate is economic freedom, a.k.a. capitalism. Journalist Mary Pilon piles on:

“Monopoly does obscure a lot of realities about this country, about class, about race, about gender, about how our current, dare I say, game of capitalism is played, and has been for centuries…”

Fortunately antiestablishment media outlets not propped up by tax money are still allowed to speak truth to moonbattery:

What this left-wing wall of unanimity ignores: Of all forms of economics, capitalism is most focused on results and the least on who you are. It is the most class-blind, color-blind, sex-blind economic philosophy around, closer to a meritocracy than the socialism most commenters here would likely prefer.

Since we are forced to pay for ideologically compliant government media, Democrats may as well force us to pay for ideologically compliant government board games. A game entitled “Equity” in which everyone always wins and Big Government keeps the money is sure to garner positive reviews from PBS.

As much of the program as you are likely to sit through.

Confirmation That Media Can Never Be Trusted

If you are ever tempted to take information presented by the mainstream media at face value, remember this headline:

Arkansas woman arrested, accused of making bomb threats in Oxford

At least WCBI made it to the second word of the headline without lying. DeSoto County News didn’t make it past the first. That wasn’t the first time the first word of a headline was a politically motivated lie.

The “woman” is this guy:

Considering that they will lie to you even where you can easily see for yourself that they are lying, it would be foolish to take their word for anything.

Alice Springs Descends Into Savagery

South Africa is not the only place where the lights of civilization are beginning to flicker out. Alice Springs, Australia has been reverting to savagery. Drunken violence is so out of control that Alice Springs Cinemas is not bothering to replace a boarded-up glass front door that has been smashed five times in the past 4 weeks. Residents are leaving as fast as they can sell their homes, and the mayor says he “can’t blame them.” When citizens met to discuss what to do, the media denounced them as “white supremacists” and compared them to the Ku Klux Klan.

The Australian Broadcasting Corporation is left-wing government media, equivalent to PBS and the BBC. It has sided aggressively with the savages who are dragging Alice Springs back into the Stone Age:

The propaganda is so over the top that it evoked major backlash. ABC was forced to apologize “for providing an incomplete picture” of the Save Alice Springs meeting.

The public broadcaster went on to say it had ‘reportedly accurately’ on the views of ‘some people who attended the community meeting’.

‘However, this report should have included a broader range of perspectives expressed at the meeting and further information about what was discussed, to provide additional context,’ the statement read.

The situation in Alice Springs and elsewhere would never have gotten this bad if not for the media stoking problems and denouncing those who do not embrace decay as racists. Drunk on woke ideology, it is fundamentally hostile to Western Civilization, which it is working to destroy.

Media Ignores Biggest Story in Years

If the world blows up but the liberal media refuses to report it, does it make a sound? The Project Veritas Pfizer videos (see here, here, and here) have already been eclipsed as the biggest story in years. It appears probable that the Biden Administration committed an act of war against the country with the world’s largest nuclear arsenal by sabotaging the Nord Stream pipelines. Both stories have been ignored by the liberal media establishment, consigning it to irrelevance.

Mike Lee highlights the significance for anyone who thinks it can’t be the end of the world if the legacy media isn’t reporting it:

Combined with Seymour Hersh’s reporting, this is virtually a smoking gun:

Biden’s psychotically smug expression at the conclusion of that clip may come to be remembered as the Smirk That Launched a Thousand Warheads — provided there is anyone left to remember it.

The best way to avoid war at this point may be to promptly remove Biden from office on grounds of conspicuous incompetence and then subject him to an international trial.

At least we have confirmation that the alleged “climate crisis” that the Regime has been inflating our money toward worthlessness to confront is a fiction. Otherwise, Biden would not have deliberately caused up to 400,000 tons of methane to leak into the atmosphere.

Project Veritas Does MSM’s Job at Pfizer Headquarters

Only one recent story might be as big as the Project Veritas revelation that Pfizer has been conspiring to create new viruses through “directed evolution” (i.e., gain of function, as in Wuhan) so as to profit from vaccines, as confessed by a top Pfizer exec who then assaulted James O’Keefe for recording the admission. That is the corrupted mainstream media’s refusal to report it. So Project Veritas does its best to give the story some of the attention it deserves:

Either the media breaks down and starts reporting the news even when events run contrary to Democrat talking points, or people will figure out that it is useless and turn to more legitimate sources of information — like Project Veritas.

Despite the media blockade and Big Tech censorship, Pfizer has felt compelled to respond:

In response to the stunning Project Veritas video, Pfizer officials admitted its scientists “engineered” mutated covid viruses in experiments to ensure its pharmaceutical products remained effective against new variants.

In a press release, the company refuted claims made in the video by Jordon Trishton Walker, “director of research and development for strategic operations and mRNA scientific planning.”

This attempt at damage control squirted technical jargon like squid ink and “seemed to conflate computer simulations with the type of viral work requiring the highly specialized containment area associated with a Biosafety Level 3 facility.”

The company is going to have to do better to answer the questions posed by U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), who sent a letter to Albert Bourla, the President and CEO of Pfizer, following the release of the video in which one of its directors casually discusses the company’s manipulation of the covid virus for profit.

Imagine an America where Democrats have abolished the Electoral College and imposed “voting rightslegislation so as to achieve single-party rule as in Chicago and California. Marco Rubio would not be in a position to demand answers from Pfizer. James O’Keefe would find himself in a gulag even faster than Mark Houck.

Tyre Nichols Killing Was Caused by Erosion

When five black cops working for a black police chief in a majority black city beat to death a black guy, people looked for explanations for how this could have happened. The media establishment, applying the When All You’ve Got Is a Hammer principle, jumped the shark completely with the risibly preposterous assertion that white racism is to blame for the Tyre Nichols killing. The actual explanation is erosion — of both standards because of Affirmative Action and the War on Police, and the family because of sexual immorality and the welfare state.

Regarding the erosion of standards:

At least two out of of five Memphis police officers charged with murder in the fatal beatdown of Tyre Nichols joined the force after the department relaxed its hiring requirements.

Tadarrius Bean and Demetrius Haley joined the Memphis PD in August 2020, after education requirements were lowered.

Retired NYPD detective Mike Alcazar, who teaches at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, notes that this results in “less desirable” candidates.

“They’re desperate. They want police officers,” Alcazar said. “They’re going through it, they check off some boxes, saying, ‘Ok, they’re good enough, get them on.’”

Here’s how desperate:

The department showed signs of struggle with recruiting new police officers, offering $15,000 signing bonuses in 2021 and 2022, Fox 13 reported. …

The department also revealed that [it] was even offering waivers for people who have been convicted on felony charges.

Urban police departments are desperate to find recruits because the heavy emphasis on Affirmative Action shrinks the pool of candidates, and because the liberal establishment’s ferocious hostility to local police — which became conspicuous during the promotion of Black Lives Matter — has made the job unappealing. Few want to put their lives on the line with their hands tied, knowing that politically motivated brass will not have their back, and that the vermin comprising the mainstream media will side with criminals to rally the public against them.

Speaking of Affirmative Action, Memphis is one of the many cities that just happens to have a black woman for a police chief:

Cerelyn “CJ” Davis … was fired from the Atlanta police department in 2008 for her alleged involvement in a sex crimes investigation into the husband of an Atlanta police sergeant…

Two detectives accused Davis of telling them not to investigate Terrill Marion Crane, who was married to sergeant Tonya Crane after the police department obtained photos of him with underage girls.

A federal grand jury later indicted Terrill Crane on child pornography.

Thanks to identity politics, Davis will always be qualified for a top job, no matter how spectacularly she fails.

Personnel standards are not the only conspicuous manifestation of the moonbattery eroding America. Jason Whitlock enraged liberals by coming on Tucker Carlson’s show and drawing attention to what they would call “root causes.” Whitlock confesses to escaping the plantation:

I argued that the five police officers mimicked gang behavior and that the whole sad event is a byproduct of communities overrun with matriarchal values and controlled by single black mothers. I said that the conversation we should be having in reaction to Tyre Nichols centers on the cost of destroying the black family.

For this, the liberal thought police at Google’s YouTube labeled video of his appearance on Tucker Carlson as “inappropriate or offensive to some audiences” — the ultimate endorsement.

As usual, Whitlock makes good points. The intelligentsia was particularly enraged by his…

…attempt to spark a conversation about the real ramifications of America’s growing preference for female authority and alternative family structures. The matriarchy doesn’t work.

The black urban matriarchy has resulted from fatherless homes, resulting in turn from the stratospheric illegitimacy rate caused by the welfare state and the collapse of sexual morality.

General decay of our culture as it is presented to us by the lefty-dominated news and entertainment media also plays a role.

[The Nichols killing] feels like the outgrowth of a rotten culture, a culture where black men are canonized and celebrated for handling petty beefs and disrespect with lethal violence.

Whitlock’s solution is Christianity. It worked for 2,000 years. In stark contrast, liberalism is not working.

CNN’s Van Jones speaks for the establishment by barking about the Nichols killing being “driven by racism.” The implied solution is to double down on the progressive policies that caused the erosion.

No wonder CNN viewership just hit a 9-year low. The pernicious lies comprising the liberal misinformation bubble are so divorced from anything real, they only resonate with fanatics who live in an alternate universe of sheer moonbattery.

Shocking Follow-up to Shocking Pfizer Video

It was almost unbelievable when top Pfizer executive Jordon Trishton Walker spilled to a Project Veritas reporter during what he thought was a gay date that Pfizer has been at the least conspiring to conduct “directed evolution” (i.e., gain of function) research to mutate viruses so as to profit from the vaccines, daring fate to subject us to another Wuhan Institute of Virology type leak (transcript here). The follow-up video is still more astonishing:

Before you let the authorities bully you into letting them stick something from Pfizer into your arm, consider that this messed-up maniac is their director of worldwide R&D strategic operations and mRNA scientific planning.

The global mega-corporation is so powerful that this is still not regarded as a news story. Tucker Carlson is aghast at the near-total media blackout:

If anything could be a bigger scandal than Pfizer conspiring to create new viruses Wuhan style to profit from vaccines, it would be the liberal establishment media refusing to report it. This might help explain the blackout:

Again we are reminded that Big Media will only tell you what is in ruling class interests to tell you.

Note that Walker’s alarming instinct was to call on the police to do something about Project Veritas, despite being the one who committed assault. It is not too late to stop what’s happening to this country, because James O’Keefe and Tucker Carlson are not yet in an FBI basement getting their fingernails pulled out on orders from the people who control Pfizer.

Scientific American Has Newspeak Dictionary Updates

Scientific American is where leftist propaganda imitates parody. Just as the World Economic Forum proclaims that we will be happy owning nothing, Scientific American assures us we like climate radicalism. With its cartoonish racialization of the Damar Hamlin injury, it jumped the shark and can no longer be considered even a kiddy version of a scientific publication. But that doesn’t mean it serves no purpose. It provides climate-related updates to the Newspeak Dictionary so as to help us avoid committing wrongspeak.

Transforming the way we talk about climate change can engage people and build the political will needed to implement policies strong enough to confront the crisis with the urgency required.

Modern leftism is founded upon postmodernism, a central tenet of which is that power is achieved through control of language. To implement this strategy, Scientific American provides a handy graphic listing politically correct terminology regarding the global warming hoax:

A key point to remember is that just as “global warming” became “climate change” to cover for when temperatures go down instead of up, “climate change” is now to give way to “climate disruption,” because too many people understand that the climate has always changed and always will, no matter how much tyranny progressives use it as a pretext to inflict.

Also, never say “natural disasters.” People who cling to wealth and freedom are to blame for all bad weather, so say “human-made disasters” instead. Because this racistly implies that sacred BIPOCs help cause bad weather, it will probably be updated to “Caucasian-made disasters.”

Further orders regarding politically expedient climate vocabulary:

Terms such as “regulate,” “restrict,” “cut,” “control” and “tax” are unpopular, especially among conservatives. Perhaps people would be more likely to support solutions described with words such as “innovation,” “entrepreneurship,” “ingenuity,” “market-based” and “competing in the global clean energy race.” The fact that the first significant U.S. climate policy is called the Inflation Reduction Act is another example of how word choice matters. The name itself helped to gain the crucial support of Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia, the swing vote. The name may also have made the legislation more appealing to the many Americans who worry about climate change but rank it below inflation and the economy on their list of priorities.

The Orwellian title convinced few that the blowout climate kookery spending bill would reduce inflation instead of making it worse. Scientific American thinks its readers are as dumb as Joe Manchin pretends to be.

Congrats to Adam Kinzinger on This Special Day

Today is January 6, the most significant day on the moonbat calendar. On this date in the glorious year of 2021, it was proven beyond dispute that opposition to the Democratic Party constitutes a Threat to Democracy and that complaining about the voter fraud that is a key component of that party’s electoral strategy constitutes insurrection.

In honor of this holiday, let us congratulate one of the brightest stars in the 1/6 firmament, turncoat congresscritter Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), who was so willing to sacrifice self-respect to curry favor with the leftist ruling class that he wept crocodile tears over a guy in a buffalo costume trespassing in the People’s House during one of Nancy Pelosi et al.’s innumerable show trials. Kinzinger has been rewarded with more suitable employment. Just days after leaving Congress, he has taken a position as a propagandist for a major Democratic Party misinformation organ:

CNN announced Wednesday that Kinzinger, who officially left Congress this week after choosing not to seek reelection in the 2022 midterms, has joined the network as a senior political commentator. …

Kinzinger, one of the lawmakers on the House Jan. 6 Committee, was a frequent guest on CNN over the past two years, invited on-air to bash former President Trump and the majority of Republicans.

Only two Republicans were sufficiently obedient to Nancy Pelosi’s demands to serve on the Committee, the other being Liz Cheney. Neither will be in the new Congress. Whereas Cheney was erased in the primaries in a historic blowout, Kinzinger did not have the courage to face voters.

The Kinzinger news does not come as a surprise:

Critics have long asserted that Kinzinger’s anti-Trump commentary signaled his desire to join a liberal news network at the end of his term. …

“It’s the least CNN could do after his 2-year apprenticeship there,” Washington Free Beacon reporter Chuck Ross mocked the announcement.

We’ll see where Liz Cheney washes up. The lefties at the Los Angeles Times dream of her becoming Speaker of the House, but MSNBC is a more likely possibility. She raked in so much loot as a congresscritter that she doesn’t need to work at all.

Democrats could have no more appropriate hero than Adam Kinzinger. Let’s all be thankful that this teary-eyed fool is no longer in a position to start a nuclear war with Russia.
