The Current State Of Justice In America

Trending Politics posted an article yesterday about a recent attempted break-in at the U.S. Capitol.

The article quotes a Fox News article:

Fox confirms that group of persons associated with The Late Show Stephen Colbert were arrested last night and charged with illegal entry to House office buildings after hours. Fox is told the people were arrested in the Longworth House Office Building.”

Well, one Fox News Channel co-host, Jeanine Pirro, sounded off on how those Colbert staffers are being treated in comparison with the January 6th protesters that have been locked up for months, many of them in solitary confinement, saying during a recent episode of “The Five”:

This was the same charge levied against the vast majority of those arrested on January 6th. A lot of those people have been in solitary confinement for months.

…Jesse Watters raised questions about the incident as well, saying:

Over the weekend you probably didn’t hear much about last week’s insurrection at the Capitol. Seven people and a menacing dog were caught stalking the halls of the Capitol harassing and intimidating members of Congress and backing on doors late at night.

Capitol police arrested them on Thursday. Held them in jail overnight and charged them with unlawful entry. The same charge many of the January 6th rioters are facing. Why haven’t we seen their mug shots? What about the video of their arrest? We have got every angle from January 6th but nothing from last week? How is this different? Because these seven guys work for the former comedian turned Biden super fan Stephen Colbert. Triumph the Insult Comic Dog and his team broke the rules and were messing around during the January 6th hearings. Apparently this was a follow-up to this bit from 2020.”

Until Americans start speaking out about the mistreatment of the January 6th protesters that are still in jail without being tried (a violation of their civil rights), the situation will not change. Please find your voice and call your congressman.

Is This Even Legal?

Yesterday Trending Politics reported that the U.S. government paid media outlets to convince Americans to be pro-vaccine. I suppose this is no different than other public health campaigns, but the fact that this campaign was being waged while any information on negative effects of vaccines was being censored seems a little unfair. Why was the government pushing a vaccine that had not been in existence long enough to go through a rigorous testing protocol?

The article notes:

The government documents describing the media relations program were reported by The Blaze in an “exclusive.”

“In response to a FOIA request filed by TheBlaze, HHS revealed that it purchased advertising from major news networks including ABC, CBS, and NBC, as well as cable TV news stations Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC, legacy media publications including the New York Post, the Los Angeles Times, and the Washington Post, digital media companies like BuzzFeed News and Newsmax, and hundreds of local newspapers and TV stations,” The Blaze’s story notes. “These outlets were collectively responsible for publishing countless articles and video segments regarding the vaccine that were nearly uniformly positive about the vaccine in terms of both its efficacy and safety.”

“Hundreds of news organizations were paid by the federal government to advertise for the vaccines as part of a ‘comprehensive media campaign,’” according to documents TheBlaze obtained from the Department of Health and Human Services. “The Biden administration purchased ads on TV, radio, in print, and on social media to build vaccine confidence, timing this effort with the increasing availability of the vaccines. The government also relied on earned media featuring “influencers” from ‘communities hit hard by COVID-19’ and ‘experts’ like White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci and other academics to be interviewed and promote vaccination in the news.”

When you know that our media can be bought, does it change your opinion about what to believe?

When The Punishment Doesn’t Fit The Crime

On Friday, Trending Politics posted an article about the sentencing of one of the rioters in the Black Lives Matter riots of 2020.

The article reports:

One of the main tenants for a stable and law-abiding society is a judicial system that enforces laws and ensures equal justice for all.

The reverse is true in progressive cities, resulting in an increase in crime.

Various government organizations, even all the way up to the Department of Justice, have gone astray. Social justice warriors are now in positions in the DOJ to implement “racial justice”, which determines how to prosecute cases based on the race and/or social justice cause, not commensurate with the crimes committed.

A perfect example can be seen in a murder committed by a BLM arsonist.

On June 5, 2020, in Minnesota, BLM riots were breaking out and becoming violent. Hundreds of people took to the streets and began looting local businesses, vandalizing private property, and recklessly setting fire to buildings. Montez Terriel Lee Jr. was one of these violent actors.

That night, Lee broke into a pawn shop, poured fire accelerant around, and set it on fire. These actions were caught on video.

Two months later, a 30-year-old man, Oscar Lee Stewart, was found dead among the debris.

The article reports on the sentencing of Mr. Lee:

In another act of injustice, Lee is facing a shorter sentence than normal because, according to US Attorney W. Anders Folk, he was “caught up in the fury” of the Black Lives Matter riots.

…Instead of facing the typical sentence of 200 months, US Attorney W. Anders Folk recommended less time because of the “motives” behind the arson and killing.

The article includes part of a memo written by the U.S. Attorney:

“Mr. Lee’s motive for setting the fire is a foremost issue. Mr. Lee credibly states that he was in the streets to protest unlawful police violence against black men, and there is no basis to disbelieve this statement. Mr. Lee, appropriately, acknowledges that he ‘could have demonstrated in a different way,’ but that he was ‘caught up in the fury of the mob after living as a black man watching his peers suffer at the hands of police,’” the memo stated.

I would like to point out that the January 6th political prisoners have been treated very differently (and the damage caused by most of them was minimal).  At some point this sort of injustice is going to create a really ugly backlash against those who are supposed to be upholding law and order.

Maybe We Should All Hire Congress As Investment Advisors

On Tuesday, Trending Politics reported that in 2021 stock trading by Congress beat the S&P 500. Now the Congress people could simply be lucky. If you think it might be because the people in Congress are smarter than the people at S&P, I would like to remind you of an event reported by CBS News on April 1, 2010.

CBS News reported the following:

Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) is raising some eyebrows with a comment he made about the U.S. territory of Guam during a House Armed Services Committee hearing last Thursday.

In a discussion regarding a planned military buildup on the Pacific island, Johnson expressed some concerns about the plans to Adm. Robert Willard, head of the U.S. Pacific fleet.

“My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize,” Johnson said. Willard paused and replied, “We don’t anticipate that.”

So much for the idea that people in Congress are smarter than the average American.

The article at Trending Politics quotes a shocking report from Unusual Whales:

According to that report, 105 members of Congress were involved in over 3,500 trades last year, selling somewhere in the range of $290 million in stocks. Further, 6 members of Congress were involved in over 270 options contract transactions totaling about $140 million, and 19 members engaged in $124 million worth of transactions involving “other securities like private equity funds.” Oh, and 6 members were involved in 25 transactions of cryptocurrencies worth a paltry (by comparison) $500k.

Those figures, again according to the report, represent about a $200 million decrease in total trades but a 5x explosion in Congressional trading of option contracts. Democrats and Republicans traded similar amounts, with Democrats just edging out Republicans, though Senators did trade about 3x more than members of the House.

Please follow the link above to read the entire article. It provides a possible clue as to how people in Congress become millionaires on a salary of less than $200,000. This is a bipartisan problem.

Disconcerting At Best

On Tuesday, Trending Politics posted an article about a statement from Dr. Fauci about vaccines that is far from comforting.

This is the statement:

“This would not be the first time, if it happened, that a vaccine that looked good in initial safety actually made people worse,” Fauci said. “There was the history of the Respiratory Syncitial Virus vaccine in children, which paradoxically made the children worse.”

The article continues:

“In the late 1960s, children in Washington, DC received an RSV vaccine in which the virus was inactivated with formalin,” Reuters reported. “Eighty percent of the children given the shot were hospitalized with severe respiratory disease, and two died. Many scientists had thought the formalin was responsible for the vaccine’s problems, but the chemical has been used safely in other vaccines.”

“The problem, they report this month in the journal Nature Medicine, was that the children’s antibodies were not binding strongly enough to the inactivated virus to produce a protective immune response,” the report noted. “Instead, the antibodies were dragging the dead virus with them, triggering a massive attack by other arms of the immune system.”

It should be noted that in 2019, the NIH admitted that “we are still lacking a safe and effective RSV vaccine.” But it somehow developed a “safe and effective” Covid-19 vaccine in a matter of months?

As noted before, the American public has no way of knowing if the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine was rigorously tested, because the FDA refuses to fully release the documents for 75 years. A “whistleblower” on the inside of Pfizer’s clinical trials has documented many alleged serious issues, including “falsifying data.”

The phenomenon that Dr. Fauci is alluding to, “leaky vaccines,” has been well-documented. A Penn State University study showed that “leaky” vaccines can cause viruses to become lethal for the unvaccinated.

“Not all vaccines prevent infection,” PSU noted. “Some, known as leaky vaccines, prolong host survival or reduce disease symptoms without preventing viral replication and transmission. Although leaky vaccines provide anti-disease benefits to vaccinated individuals, new research by CIDD’s Andrew Read, David Kennedy and colleagues at the Avian Oncogenic Virus Group in the United Kingdom, and The University of New England in Australia, has demonstrated that leaky vaccines can make the situation for unvaccinated individuals worse.”

How in the world can anyone justify a vaccine mandate if they are aware of the problems with the vaccine?

In July 2021, Deseret News posted the following:

Israel — the poster child for COVID-19 vaccination and the first country to reach herd immunity — has seen a recent rise in cases. Recently, most of the people testing positive are vaccinated, reported The Washington Post.

The trend has brought a slew of questions about the efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines and the implications of new strains for future outbreaks. While these trends initially seem like cause for vaccine skepticism, a closer look at Israel’s current outbreaks shows that vaccines are effective and working — even against the delta variant.

No. If people are getting sick, the vaccines are NOT working. People may be getting less sick, but if they are still getting sick and still spreading the virus, maybe the vaccine is not working as well as it should.

The article also includes the following:

The people who are not testing positive in the current outbreak are those who have had COVID-19 previously and recovered. These people account for 9% of Israel’s population but less than 1% of recent infections, according to Kovler’s analysis. This has brought new questions about whether natural infections are more protective against the delta variant than vaccinations — but the answer is not yet certain.

Yet, America does not consider natural immunity in its vaccine mandates. Europe does.

What Were They Thinking?

Trending Politics recently posted an article about a bill passed by the House of Representatives that would establish a federal vaccination database. I guess when you want total control, you don’t worry about such things as Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) laws.

The article reports:

The House of Representatives has passed a dangerous bill that would establish a federal vaccination database. Alarmingly, the radical Democrats accomplished this with the help of 80 Republicans, including Minority Leader and Speaker hopeful Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).

“Eighty House Republicans voted with Democrats on Tuesday to pass the Immunization Infrastructure Modernization Act, which if passed by the Senate and signed into law would fund a federal vaccination database,” Breitbart reported.

“According to the bill, also called H. R. 550, the government would provide $400 million in taxpayer dollars to fund ‘immunization system data modernization and expansion,’ a system otherwise defined as ‘a confidential, population-based, computerized database that records immunization doses administered by any health care provider to persons within the geographic area covered by that database’,” the report noted.

The government bill would spend $400 million on an “immunization system data modernization and expansion,” a system it says is “a confidential, population-based, computerized database that records immunization doses administered by any health care provider to persons within the geographic area covered by that database.”

If you don’t think this law will be totally misused by the people in Washington, you haven’t been paying attention.

The article concludes:

“In a statement, the bill’s main sponsor, Democrat Rep. Ann Kuster (NH), said the system would be used to ‘remind patients when they are due for a recommended vaccine’ and identify areas with low vaccination rates to ‘ensure equitable distribution of vaccines,” Breitbart reported. “Notably, the bill has four Republican co-sponsors: Reps. Larry Bucshon (R-IN), James Baird (R-IN), David McKinley (R-WV), and Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA).”

Rep. Mary Miller (R-IL), one of the 130 Republicans to vote “no,” told Breitbart News on Wednesday that the legislation would enable the federal government to “track” unvaccinated Americans who “will be targeted and forced to comply with Biden’s crazy ‘global vaccination’ vision.”

“These systems are designed to allow for the sharing of crucial information and maintenance of records. Do we really trust the government to protect our medical records?” Miller said. “The bill’s author even bragged in her press release that these systems will help the government remind patients when they are due for a recommended vaccine and identify areas with low vaccination rates to ensure equitable distribution of vaccines. This was clearly a legislative tool to enforce vaccine mandates and force their Orwellian rules onto those who do not comply.”

Disturbingly, the federal vaccination database could also be abused to target Americans who value human rights and individual freedoms. As the Democratic Party has repeatedly demonstrated, there is no part of the federal government the extremist party isn’t willing to weaponize against their political enemies.

I Hope Your Thanksgiving Guests Didn’t Take This Advice Seriously

Yesterday Trending Politics posted an article with the following title, “‘The Atlantic’ Gives Advice To “Deprogram” Pro-Trump Relatives On Thanksgiving; Suggests Reporting Them To FBI.” Nothing like feeling the love if you are a conservative in a family gathering of liberals.

The article reports:

Towards the end of the article, she even throws out the idea of reporting their relatives to the FBI. Some may think it’s a joke, but it’s something that is actually happening across the United States.

“This is your chance to deprogram them. Facebook knows its algorithm radicalizes users. This is your chance to tell your aunt that maybe the news she gets from it isn’t all that reliable. And that maybe the MAGA news network is not giving her unbiased news,” she writes.

Jong-Fast rejected the idea that Thanksgiving should be a time of peace and harmony. Instead, she thinks her readers should turn the day into an opportunity to tell their “creepy uncle” to get the vaccine.

What if your creepy uncle has already had the virus and has the antibodies?

The article concludes:

She concludes with a dogwhistle suggestion to report their family members to the authorities for their political beliefs.

“Maybe it won’t work. Maybe you’ll leave Thanksgiving dinner as divided as you were when you sat down at the table five hours and 4,000 calories ago. Or maybe you’ll plant the seed, sow just a little doubt about whatever Tucker Carlson is saying now. Maybe you’ll even change a heart or a mind. Maybe you’ll bring the temperature down just a tiny bit. Or maybe you’ll need to report a relative to the FBI,” she added.

Can’t you just feel the love of the holiday season?

When Common Core Math Comes To Congress

Yesterday Trending Politics posted an article about a recent Tweet by Senator Bernie Sanders.

The article reports:

Sanders tweeted: “2 senators cannot be allowed to defeat what 48 senators and 210 House members want. We must stand with the working families of our country. We must combat climate change. We must delay passing the Infrastructure Bill until we pass a strong Reconciliation Bill.”

But that’s the way our system is set up. The Senate is supposed to be the deliberative body and the House of Representatives is supposed to be more easily swayed by the trends of the moment. The Senate is there to protect America from any rash action taken by the House of Representatives. That system was somewhat diluted by the Seventeen Amendment, but traces of it remain in place.

The article notes a few Tweets in response to Senator Sanders’ Tweet:

“This is a pretty hilarious way of trying to say “48 senators should win a vote over 52 senators when it’s a bill I like.” That’s some pretty creative math,” said one Twitter user.

“It’s 52 senators defeating what 48 senators want,” said Nick Pappas. “You need Manchin & Sinema because all 50 senators on the GOP side reject your proposal outright. Get a majority in the chamber if your plan is so popular.”

“48 senators and 210 House members are, last I checked, a minority of both chambers,” said Dan McLaughlin.

“In other words, 52 senators are defeating what 48 senators want and 225 House members are defeating what 210 want,” tweeted Greg Price.

“I know math isn’t a big thing with socialists, but it’s at least 52 Senators rejecting your radical agenda. And 52 is a bigger number than 48.”

“Bernie’s policies are based on the idea that 25 states do not matter,” said Tim Pool.

Even The British Have Noticed Something Amiss In The 2020 Presidential Election

On September 28th, Trending Politics posted an article about some very interesting statements in a recent British Sunday Times article.

Trending Politics notes:

“So Trump was right.” Thus begins a broadside in the Sunday Times that amounts to a clarion call for the world: America’s president came to power in an election that was “rigged.”

Now before you go off on a rant about illegal votes, questionable software or voting machines, that’s not what the article was about.

Trending Politics quotes The Sunday Times:

“The American public is slowly waking up to the fact that they are being led by an ineffectually devious, senile halfwit,” Rob Liddle writes. “Donald Trump is back in the lead in the opinion polls. Imagine how awful a president must be if people would rather that sack of meat with mittens were back in charge.”

“Soon the public will wake up to something even more unpleasant and sinister: that the last presidential election was a fraud, rigged by big business, the labour unions and, more than anything, the media and the tech companies,” he continues. “If that election had taken place in any other country, it would have been called ‘unfree’. And, as more and more evidence emerges, it terrifies me that the same thing could happen here.”

The Sunday Times continues:

“The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election,” a bombshell Time article released just days before the Senate impeachment trial, appears to have provided some of the best evidence that the election was “fortified” by a shadowy cabal that included giant corporations, big tech giants, and powerful labor unions.

“What we didn’t know until we were told in February this year, courtesy of Time magazine, was that there actually was a conspiracy — a secret coalition of chief executives, labour unions, left-wing pressure groups and media companies — to manage what information was available to the voting public,” Liddle went on. “Its aim, as The Wall Street Journal put it, was to ‘suppress unwanted elements of US political conversation’. What a wonderful phrase.”

“Time magazine reported this as if the cabal — it called the arrangement a cabal — had been acting heroically,” he added. “To save the US public from making the same mistake again and electing that Brobdingnagian boor — and to do so by suppressing stories favourable to him.”

The Times writer also references a disturbing betrayal by Trump’s Joint Chief of Staff at the time that should be sending off alarm bells from sea to shining sea.

The article concludes:

“The author of that article in Time said the conspirators ‘we’re not rigging the election; they were fortifying it’,” he concludes. “Wow. Isn’t that a little chilling? And are you looking forward to a ‘fortified’ general election over here?”

Indeed. The way all of Western Civilization is heading, “rigged” elections may soon become the norm. Americans and their brethren in once-free nations around the world may someday look back at the halcyon days when they were able to pick their own leaders as nothing more than a distant memory in an eclipsed golden age.

Grandfathers, grandchildren astride their knees, will explain to them about why they did nothing. “It all started with Trump…”

And that’s not even getting anywhere near the questionable mail-in ballots, stopping the vote counting, pulling ballots out from under a desk, etc.

Follow The Money

We are currently looking at Congress attempting to pass what they are calling an infrastructure bill that will very likely bankrupt America. So exactly what does this bill pay for?

Yesterday Trending Politics posted an article that answers some of that question.

The article reports:

Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said on Saturday that a Democratic infrastructure bill contains language and provisions that will direct the lion’s share of taxpayer funds toward blue cities and states regardless of need elsewhere.

“When we start to look at it, no one’s against roads and bridges working for them, but what they are against is the Washington, D.C., establishment actually spending their dollars on their behalf, but not necessarily their priorities,” Meadows told Newsmax TV.

“The problem is about those priorities: Most of the money that they’re talking about, actually will go to major metropolitan areas,” Meadows added.

It is quite possible that blue states and blue cities need more infrastructure money. These states have been mismanaged by the Democrats for years. However, it is the responsibility of the residents of those states and cities to elect responsible leaders–not the responsibility of the rest of the country to bail them out when their bad policies catch up to them.

The article continues:

“Some of these senators are just saying, ‘Well, we want to do it; it sounds good, but it’s really not going to hit the target,’” Meadows, who was a GOP lawmaker from North Carolina before joining the Trump White House, continued.

“So for me, it’s about making sure that we have a different priority and that we don’t spend money on the Green New Deal or some kind of human infrastructure,” he said.

“We’ve got a new definition for infrastructure that, when I was a member of Congress, we never heard.”

In addition to major cities, all Democrat-run, being infrastructure priorities for the massive spending, middle-Americans are going to be hit with even more inflation that will act as a tax, he warned.

“It is the failed policy of the Biden administration that’s actually making us pay more at the grocery store, at the gas pump, on really anything that we’re looking at,” Meadows said.

“You look at those inflation indicators, it’s all because they’re printing money. And what are the Democrats want to do? They want to print more of it,” he told Newsmax TV.

“Eventually you run out of other people’s money. We’re at that point, and it’s time to say enough is enough.”

There are a lot of reasons Republicans should do everything they can to prevent this bill from becoming law.

 

Who Decided The Polices Involved?

Yesterday Trending Politics posted an article about freshmen Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado, who is leading Republican efforts to find out why those involved in the events of January 6th are being treated so differently than those members of Antifa and Black Lives matter who were involved in the riots last summer.

The article reports:

A group of Republican lawmakers led by freshmen Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado are demanding that the Biden administration explain the alleged unequal treatment of Black Lives Matter and Antifa protesters, many of whom have never spent a night in jail, and those who have been incarcerated for months following the Jan. 6 Capitol breach.

In a letter, Boebert and 10 other House Republicans asked Attorney General Merrick Garland to address “the apparent inconsistent application of the law with respect to rioters across the country,” according to the Washington Times.

“The foundation of our criminal justice system requires that all defendants are treated equally before the law, but the Biden regime is not living up to this solemn obligation,” said Boebert, in a statement.

The lawmakers say that prosecutors in Oregon have signed off on at least 12 “deferred resolution agreements in federal felony cases” resulting from clashes during last year’s protests in Portland, while some rioters from Jan. 6 are being held in solitary confinement.

“Reports are circulating that the Biden regime has held January 6th rioters in solitary confinement, while at the same time, they are letting BLM rioters that attacked federal buildings off with just a few hours of community service,” Boebert said.

The article concludes with a quote from a letter written by four Senate Republicans led by Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas in June:

“DOJ’s apparent unwillingness to punish individuals who committed crimes during the spring and summer 2020 protests stands in stark contrast to the treatment of the individuals charged in connection with the breach of the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, D.C.,” said Tuesday’s letter from Boebert and the 10 other House members.

“Whether it is a mob breaking laws in D.C. or a mob in Portland or Minneapolis, the standard of justice should be the same in America,” they added.

The treatment of the people who entered the Capitol Building on January 6th is much more representative of a country ruled by a dictatorship than a free democratic republic.

Things The Media Got Wrong During The Trump Administration


Anyone can make a mistake. However, when all of the mistakes go the same way, you begin to wonder. Somehow during the past five years, when the mainstream media made a mistake, the mistake always portrayed President Trump is a bad light. On Saturday, Trending Politics posted an article detailing some of the erroneous reporting in recent years. No one expects an apology, but it would be nice if some of the falsehoods were corrected.

The list of misreported stories includes:

Trump ordered his administration to forcibly clear Lafayette Park for a ‘photo op’ at St. John’s Church.

COVID-19 lab-leak was just a wild Trump conspiracy.

Trump didn’t do anything about ‘Russian bounties’ on U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

Trump told Georgia election officials to ‘find evidence of fraud.’

Trump never said there were “fine people” on both sides at a deadly protest in Charlottesville, Va., in 2017 in involving Antifa types and white supremacists/neo-Nazis;

He never called illegal immigrants “animals”;

He didn’t “flat-out lie” when he said Obama ‘wiretapped’ his 2016 campaign — Obama did do that or, at least, his administration did;

One of the very first media lies — Trump ‘removed a bust of Martin Luther King’ from the Oval Office — was, at least, quickly debunked.

Please follow the link to the article to read the details. The media worked very hard to paint a totally false picture of our 45th President. Unfortunately, many Americans failed to do their own research and believed that picture was accurate.

So Why Are People Supposed To Be Vaccinated?

Yesterday Trending Politics posted an article highlighting some of the very confusing statements recently made by President Biden. The President has been vaccinated for the coronavirus, yet he is still wearing a mask. If the mask prevents you from getting the virus, what does the vaccine do (or vice versa)? The President is also hinting that if everyone isn’t vaccinated, we may not be able to celebrate Independence Day. Isn’t that ironic?

The article reports:

On Wednesday, the nation’s 46th president reiterated his tired threat: If people don’t march down to their local vaccination site and roll up their sleeves, that they would not be able to celebrate July 4th. Even to get together in “small gatherings” to commemorate the day when our forefathers broke free of the tyranny of a king.

Biden’s mass vaccination push has gotten stuck in the mud now that those who were eager to take “the jab” have done so. That leaves tens of millions of Americans who are understandably wary of being injected with vaccines that were rushed into distribution under emergency use approval. Without the standard years of clinical and animal trials that show safety and effectiveness long-term.

Last month Biden dangled the carrot that he would generously allow scaled down celebrations, while brandishing the stick that he could change his mind if his orders were not obeyed. Dr. Anthony S. Fauci also suggested that there would be prohibitions on the cherished American holiday if sufficient numbers didn’t get vaccinated.

With vaccine supply now outweighing demand in many areas according to reports, Biden shook that stick at Americans.

The article concludes:

Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell responded, “It was advice for an alternate universe. The president and his advisers may need to get out more. Americans are already getting together in small groups outdoors in blue states and red states, in small towns and big cities. The country is not locked down waiting for July 4.”

Texas GOP Senator John Cornyn also weighed in; “If every willing person in America is vaccinated for #COVID19 by May, as POTUS has said, why put our lives on hold till July the 4th?”

Biden’s hostage-taking is arrogant, obscene and just plain un-American. Red states have successfully reopened, mask mandates have been rolled back and people are getting about their lives without waiting for permission from Washington. Red state or blue state, patriots will be celebrating July 4th no matter what Biden and Fauci threaten.

If the vaccine works and every willing American has been vaccinated, what is the problem? If the vaccine doesn’t work, why is the government so anxious to have Americans take it?

When The Spin Does Not Line Up With The Facts

We have all recently heard many of our politicians claim that America is a ‘systemically racist country’ and that the police kill African-Americans at a much higher rate than they kill white Americans. There are a number of statistics that prove both of those claims false.

First of all, if America is systemically racist, why do we have many African-Americans in leadership positions?  The United States Congress includes 57 African-American Representatives and 3 African-American Senators. The states include 7 Lieutenant Governors, 6 Attorneys General, and 3 Secretaries of State who are African-Americans. More than one-third of America’s top 100 cities is governed by an African-American. America elected an African-American President twice. We currently have a bi-racial Vice-President. Many of our military leaders have been African-American–Colin Powell, Allen West. Many African-Americans have served in cabinet-level posts in our government since 1966. Many of our major cities have diverse police forces with various races represented and in charge. If we are systemically racist, we are not doing a very good job of it.

But what about police targeting black people? Yesterday Trending Politics posted some very interesting graphs.

The graph above shows the perception (created by the media).

The article  notes:

The bars are color-coded to reflect the estimation in each political ideology category. Very Liberal respondents were the furthest from reality: 14.29% said ‘about 10,000’ unarmed black males were killed by police, while 31.43% said ‘about 1,000.’ Liberals were slightly closer at 6.67% saying ‘about 10,000’ and 26.67% saying ‘about 1,000.’ According to the database at Mapping Police Violence, this number was actually 27.

The article also includes a chart of arrests sorted by race:

As you can see, the media is creating a false narrative.

The article concludes:

Amidst a rising “epidemic” of violent crime, the radical left wants to slash police funding. Many cities are already paying the price. Portland cut police funding and saw a startling 2,000% surge in murders. New York City, under Mayor de Blasio, reduced police funding and experienced a 127% increase in shootings. Minneapolis cut police funding by $8 million, while early 2021 crime data show a 250% spike in gunshot victims. In February, the Minneapolis city council backtracked and unanimously approved a $6.4 million boost in police funding.

“Initial data from the FBI and major cities across the U.S. suggests homicides increased by about 30% in 2020, and murder rates remained high into early 2021,” ABC reported. “Many cities that slashed police resources last year because of the protests, the pandemic, or both have poured money back into law enforcement to cope with a sudden surge of violence.”

There is no “epidemic” of police shooting unarmed black men in the United States. But there is an “epidemic” of ignorance and an unwillingness to check basic facts. This ignorance is leading Americans to adopt disastrous policies, such as ‘defunding the police.’

There is an element in our media and among some elected officials that would like to ‘reset’ our country into an image where they have more power and average people have no power. One way to do this is to disrupt totally the current paradigm. That is the reason the reporting and actual numbers are so out of sync. All Americans need to do their own research before believing anything they are told!

 

When Americans Won’t Vote For You, Simply Import New Americans

Yesterday Trending Politics posted an article about how the Biden administration is handling to flood of illegal immigrants currently pouring into America. The crisis at the border is rapidly spreading to all areas of the country. There is no way the number of people crossing into our country illegally are going to remain in one small area.

The article reports:

Biden’s border crisis is spreading nationwide, according to a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies. The new administration is pursuing an immigration policy dubbed “catch-and-bus” with the aim of establishing undocumented immigrants in states in the interior of the United States.

The Biden “smuggling routes” have gone largely unreported by media outlets that are fixated on the disastrous border crisis, where children are being kept in unsanitary conditions within detention facilities that violate COVID protocols.

According to an original investigation by CIS, a veritable “conveyor belt” of busesfrom Texas, Arizona and California are transporting “thousands” of undocumented immigrants into America’s heartland.

…“As best as the Center for Immigration Studies can determine from interviews and scattered media reporting, the buses are leaving regularly from Del Rio, the Texas Rio Grande Valley communities, and Laredo, but the busing also appears to be going on in Arizona, as well as in California,” the report continued.

“Where are the buses going?” the CIS rhetorically asked. “They often drop their Haitian, Venezuelan, and Cuban passengers in Florida and New Jersey. Those from Nicaragua and other Central American nations have been delivered to Tennessee, Massachusetts, Indiana, Michigan, North Carolina, Georgia, Kentucky, and to large cities in Texas such as Dallas and Houston.”

The estimates square with other Border Patrol estimates, The Blaze corroborates.

The article concludes:

“One Nicaraguan migrant showed CIS a DHS document titled ‘Interim Notice Authorizing Parole’, which grants him a renewable one-year term to live legally inside the country,” the report went on, adding, “Most will likely use their time to apply for asylum, a lengthy, back-logged process that allows for work authorization and Social Security cards during an adjudication process that can drag on for years.”

The Biden “catch-and-bus” policy is an escalation of the Democratic Party’s open borders policy. Even if a state is not on the southern border, an illegal migrant can walk across it and get a free bus ride from the Biden administration to any place it chooses.

Has anyone given any thought to the people who have been waiting in line to come to America legally? Admittedly our immigration policies need to change to eliminate a lot of the expense and red tape, but open borders are not the answer!

Let’s project this a year or two down the road. The people who came here illegally are given a renewable one-year term to live in America. Some of the immigrants will renew; others will simply vanish somewhere inside the country. Eventually a Democrat congressman will say that like the dreamers, they have been here long enough so that they should automatically be given citizenship. At that point they should be allowed to vote. Voila! You have changed to voting demographic of America. Do you think the Democrats would close the borders if they thought the people coming across would eventually become Republican voters?

Fighting Back

Yesterday Trending Politics reported that 13 states are suing the Biden administration because of the clause in the Covid Relief Bill that prevents states from lowering taxes if they receive aid.

The article quotes The Daily Caller:

The Daily Caller reports: “The 13-state coalition argued that the provision included in the Democrats’ $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package preventing states from cutting taxes if they accept relief from the federal government is unconstitutional. The coalition, led by Republican West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, filed the federal lawsuit Wednesday evening in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Alabama.”

In a statement released on Wednesday, Morrisey said, “Never before has the federal government attempted such a complete takeover of state finances. We cannot stand for such overreach.”

…The lawsuit explains that the tax provision is “one of the most egregious power grabs” in U.S. history, adding that the Tenth Amendment doesn’t allow the federal government to stretch their authority like the Biden Administration is doing.

The lawsuit is needed. The provision in the bill is definitely government overreach.

An Interesting Perspective

Yesterday Trending Politics posted an article showing a series of Tweets by former NY Times reporter Alex Berenson. Recently Alex Berenson is known for challenging the fear-based mainstream coronavirus narratives. His observations on the current election are interesting.

Here is a summary of the Tweets. If you follow the link above to the article, you can see the original Tweets:

Look, I don’t know if President Trump wins or not – the polls say one thing and the rallies say something else, and it feels like it’s going to be close either way – but this is already the most serious populist repudiation of elite opinion since at least Andrew Jackson. 

Remember, in 2016 the elites thought Trump was a joke. They didn’t think he could possibly win and they treated the election that way. This time they are treating him as a deadly threat, and practically EVERY center of gravity in the United States is aligned against him.

Not just conventional media and Hollywood and the social sciences, as in 2016, but big technology companies/social media, non-profits, the physical sciences and medicine, which have been relatively non-partisan, and most shockingly much of the national security community.

And yet, despite all of this, and despite the efforts to frame the Coronavirus as an end-of-days plague, and despite now running at a big fundraising deficit to Uncle Joe (as he did to Hillary Clinton) Trump is clearly in striking distance. People are FED UP.

That pretty much sums it up!

A Disturbing Campaign Ad

Yesterday Trending Politics posted an article about a campaign ad put out by the Biden campaign.

The article quotes the ad:

“America was an idea, we hold these truths to be self-evident, we’ve never lived up to it, but we’ve never walked away from it before. And I think we just have to be more honest with our kids know as we raise them, what actually did happen. Acknowledge our mistakes,” Biden says in his ad.

Really. Did we live up to it when we stormed the beaches of France to stop a genocide? Did we live up to it when we fought a Civil War to end slavery in America? Did we live up to it when we ended segregation in America and fought to give equal rights to all Americans?

It is sad that a person running for the highest office in the land has this perspective. It is even sadder than many Americans share his view.

We are not perfect, but we are ‘the last best hope’ for freedom that the world has. It’s time to celebrate that. We should work on our faults, but not be defined by them.
