On Friday, President Donald Trump pointed to the chaotic primary election in New York's 12th Congressional District as a portent of what the nation might expect should Democrats succeed in their scheme to vastly expand mail-in voting for the general election in November. Though the primary was held on June 23, a clear winner is not known due to a large number of absentee ballots that were disqualified by the state's Board of Elections.
While the rest of the world locked down their citizens and shuttered business and industry as a result of apocalyptic — and apocalyptically incorrect — modeled scenarios of the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the Nordic nation of Sweden assessed the situation with a more level-headed analysis and chose to confront the crisis without lockdowns.
Federal agents assigned to protect federal property against left-wing rioters and vandals are to begin a “phased withdrawal” from the city’s downtown beginning Thursday, according to Oregon’s Democratic Governor Kate Brown. In a statement, Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf said he and Brown together devised a plan to end “the violent activity in Portland directed at federal properties and law enforcement officers.”
Even as the liberal mainstream media continue to attack President Trump and speculate about his impending defeat, a recently published poll shows that candidates aligned with Trump are seeing an upward tick. It appears that Democrats may again suffer a major case of cognitive dissonance when the Trump Train rolls victoriously into the station in November.
Taiwan News published a statement made by Taiwanese economist Wu Chia-lung on July 24 offering his opinion that the United States has at least 10 ways to counteract China’s aggressive global expansion. Wu’s proposals are:• Jointly demand compensation: The United States can join with other countries to hold China accountable for its responsibility for the global COVID-19 pandemic. The American Enterprise Institute (AEI), in an April 28 article, proposed something similar
More than 100 Wisconsin police agencies have backed out of security agreements to assist the Milwaukee police with crowd control at the Democratic National Convention scheduled for August 17-20. The main reason for the pull-out seems to be a directive issued by the Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission that the city no longer use tear gas to control unruly crowds.
RICHMOND, VA — The story of riots under the pretext of “peaceful protest” continues to play out in America’s cities. The past few days in Richmond, Virgina, is a case in point. As one “protest” after another predictably devolved into one violent and destructive riot after another, the establishment in both government and media continue to spin the facts to condemn white conservatives with a smear campaign that has not even a passing acquaintance with reality.
The implicit bias of liberals is on full display at Rutgers University, where the English Department declared proper grammar to be “racist” and stated it was exemplary of “white supremacy.” The announcement prompted outcry from minority groups who recognized that the notion is discrminatory because it assumes that non-white students cannot be held to the same standards of writing as whites.
Joe Biden. This is what a “moderate” Democrat looks like? Really? Well, considering the craziness of the Democratic primaries with a lineup that included Bernie Sanders, Beto O’Rourke, Pete Buttigieg, Kamala Harris, and Cory Booker, Biden may seem moderate by comparison. And that, of course, is the whole point of the media narrative in attempting to sell Joe Biden as a “centrist,” “Moderate,” “conservative” Democrat to Middle American voters. However, aside from Biden’s long public record of supporting far-left positions on political, social, economic, and moral issues, his list of current endorsers speaks volumes about the agenda we could expect from a Biden presidency. Consider this very abbreviated list of endorsers:
Dr. Simone Gold, the founder of America’s Frontline Doctors, whose viral press conference claiming the mainstream narrative surrounding the dangers of COVID-19 are based more on fear than on fact, announced on Tuesday that the organization’s website had been taken down by hosting provider and website builder Squarespace.
Just one day after presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden said, “I am not committed to naming any but the people I’ve named, and among them are four black women,” Politico reported that he’d already made up his mind. Yesterday Politico announced, Joe Biden chose Kamala Harris to become his running mate for the 2020 election on Aug. 1, two weeks before the Democratic National Convention, after keeping his choice close to the chest for months.
Bookings for durable goods orders — those designed to last at least three years — jumped another 7.3 percent in June, following May’s 15.1-percent surge. Economists were expecting a 6.9-percent increase. Behind the jump were orders for motor vehicles and parts, which leapt 85.7 percent in June following May’s 28.8-percent gain.
RICHMOND, VA — In lockstep with other cities across America, Richmond, Virgina — the former capitol of the Confederate States of America — saw violent and destructive riots over the weekend. And the liberal establishment in both government and media are spinning the violence and destruction as both an isolated incident and as the work of White Supremacist infiltrators.
The Deep State is hyping COVID19 hysteria and an alleged "coin shortage" to promote a cashless society with no cash, warns Behind the Deep State host Alex Newman. But in reality, the establishment has been promoting an end to cash for many years, long before coronavirus and the supposed currency shortage. After burning down the economy with lockdown and shutdown policies, now the elites are peddling universal basic income too. The groups promoting this include the Ford Foundation, USAID, the United Nations, many governments around the world, the credit card companies, the mega-banks, and others. If and when it becomes a reality, financial privacy will be lost and nobody will be able to buy or sell without submitting to the dictates of the system. Christians believe this has implications from a prophecy perspective.
The Chinese government ordered the closure of a U.S. consulate in the city of Chengdu in retaliation for America’s closing of the Chinese consulate in Houston. The communist nation gave the United States 72 hours as of Friday to complete the closure. American officials have not confirmed whether they will follow through with China’s demand. A senior State Department official told NBC News that the Trump administration is ready to deal with the aftermath of its decision to close the consulate and will continue sending diplomats to China.
In speaking with reporters on a call on Friday, President Trump’s campaign manager Bill Stepien said he’s confident the president will not only keep the states he won by the narrowest of margins in 2016, but will also win other states he lost by narrow margins to Clinton. Thus he expects Trump’s win in the Electoral College to exceed the 304 votes he received in 2016.
The Trump Administration on Friday announced four executive orders intended to lower drug prices for Americans, including measures like facilitating importation of drugs from foreign countries. Joined at a news conference by federal health administrators and Florida leaders such as Republican Governor Ron DeSantis, U.S. Representative Matt Gaetz, and Florida House Speaker José Oliva, the president accused previous administrations of doing “nothing” to stop rising drug prices.
A poll taken by the Wall Street Journal and NBC News earlier this month revealed that Independent voters are moving toward the president 100 days before the election on November 3. Fifty percent of the 900 registered voters polled between July 9 and 12 said there was no chance they’d be voting for President Trump, while 37 percent said there was no chance they’d be voting for presumptive Democratic candidate Joe Biden.
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf on Sunday defended the federal government’s response to persistent rioting, vandalism, and violence in Portland, criticizing local leaders for continuing to refer to the instigators as “peaceful protesters.” During an appearance on Fox News’ Sunday Morning Features, Wolf said the protesters seen in Portland are different from the “normal criminal activity” witnessed in places such as Chicago and Kansas City.
Far-left representative Maxine Waters, who in 2018 called on supporters to confront and harass Trump administration officials and hence intensify our cold (un)civil war, now says the president may want a hot one. To be precise, Waters, opining on MSNBC Wednesday while being interviewed by station host Joy Reid, peddled a conspiracy theory holding that President Trump was deploying federal officers to violent Democrat-run cities nationwide as a “trial run” for using “his military” against Americans should he fail to win re-election.
Hundreds of Black Lives Matter protesters demonstrated outside the home of Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot on Thursday evening, calling for defunding the police even as Lightfoot’s administration carried out the removal of two Christopher Columbus statues that have been targeted by BLM agitators in recent days.
In 2020, it’s definitely not “OK to be White” at the Democratic National Convention. A draft of the DNC’s 2020 Democratic Party Platform obtained by Politico shows a frequent focus on racial issues, with language that repeatedly accuses whites in America of benefiting unfairly from society at the expense of minorities.
Domino’s Pizza was among the businesses successfully sued under the American with Disabilities Act (ADA), signed into law 30 years ago on July 26th, 1990, by President George Herbert Walker Bush. The plaintiff was a blind person who argued that he was denied “full and equal enjoyment” of its pizza menu, found on its website and app. This was despite Domino’s offering 13 other ways that the plaintiff could have placed an order for a pizza.
In this interview with The New American's Alex Newman, author and former options trader Chris Marcus of Arcadia Economics explains that there is a looming explosion in silver due to price manipulation and unbacked paper. Large banks are involved. He says that when the market figures out that there is far more "paper" silver than there is physical silver to back it up, prices will skyrocket. He also talks about his new book, The Big Silver Short.
Well, it’s obvious who the despotic Chinese government wants as our next president, and his initials are not D.J.T. Joe Biden is their man, a reality made clear by a China Global Television Network propaganda video essentially stating that the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic can be used to defeat President Trump.
Ohio Governor Mike DeWine (R) has implemented a sweeping statewide mask mandate, which will apply to all individuals over the age of 10, effective July 23, much to the chagrin of constitutionalists and civil libertarians. Under Governor DeWine’s order, masks are required at any indoor location that is not a residence, outdoors when six feet of social distancing cannot be maintained, and when waiting for, riding, driving, or operating all public transportation, including ride-sharing services. The order includes exceptions for those who have a medical condition or disability and those communicating with individuals with disabilities. It also exempts officiants at religious services, those “actively involved in public safety,” and those who are “actively eating or drinking.”
“For those of us who are sons of the South, those of us who have endured hardship, discrimination, and a lot of things that are very difficult to even talk about, for this moment in time where we are today, where we are going to start the process of healing and setting the record straight as it relates to the real history of this country, it is fitting and proper that those individuals who fought to keep many of our ancestors enslaved should not have to be recognized in a place where people who do good expect to be recognized,” said Representative Bennie Thompson in arguing for his bill to remove 16 statues that are on display inside the U.S. Capitol, which passed the House of Representatives on Wednesday 305-113.
You might not think of yourself as an axe murderer. But, according to today’s liberal-progressive propaganda, if you don’t wear a face mask in public you’re definitely, probably akin to an axe murderer. The purveyors of fear propaganda don’t use that language. Instead, they say this: People who won’t wear a mask possess “so-called ‘Dark Triad’ traits — narcissism, psychopathy, and Machiavellianism.” And they are “less likely to comply with restrictions and engage in preventative measures against the pandemic.” So says Newsweek reporting on “two recent studies” that “looked at the relationship between personality traits and reactions to restrictions put in place to slow the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19.”
There are many sad ironies to the Sunday assault on conservative commentator Michelle Malkin. First is that she was in Denver to speak at a pro-police rally, yet the police present had orders preventing them from protecting her. There’s also how the incident is yet another example of “college culture,” with its accosting of conservative speakers, bleeding into the wider society.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio warned the Trump administration that he will take them to court if they send in federal officers to curb the violence and unrest sweeping the city. During a press conference on Wednesday, the Democrat panned the White House as being “fixated” on intervening in New York’s problems.
A Fox News poll conducted July 12-15 surveyed Americans’ views on our nation’s Founders. The result showed that while a majority of those polled still viewed our Founding Fathers favorably, the approval margin was not nearly as universal as it might have been a generation or two ago. Only 63 percent regarded our Founders as heroes, while 15 percent said they were villains. Another 15 percent said “it depends” and seven percent had no opinion.
Labor unions recognized a prime opportunity to use the Black Lives Matter movement to increase their reach and push their agenda by teaming with a coalition of BLM groups to organize the July 20 Strike for Black Lives. On Monday, tens of thousands of workers nationwide walked off their jobs, purportedly as a show of solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, even while the strikers’ demands included a laundry list of union agenda items.
All eyes are on Chicago. In seeming response to criticism of policing from the city council’s Progressive Caucus, the Chicago Police Department on Monday released footage from a Friday protest-turned-riot in which violent agitators hurled projectiles and fireworks at officers protecting a statue of Christopher Columbus, resulting in 49 officers injured.
Social-media giant Twitter announced Tuesday that it has begun a purge of content related to QAnon, the online community of Trump supporters who believe the president is leading a secret war against a cabal of Satanic elites. Twitter says it will ban many QAnon followers, citing alleged misinformation and harassment of other users. It will also stop recommending accounts tied to the movement, including in-email and follow recommendations. Additionally, the platform seeks to limit QAnon circulation in features such as trends and search.
Motorcycle accidents ruled Covid deaths? In the rush to paint Florida as the epicenter of the “second wave” of the coronavirus outbreak, government officials and their allies in the mainstream media have stooped to ridiculous depths to maximize the death count. A television station this weekend looked into two highly unusual Covid deaths among victims in their 20s, and when they asked about co-morbidities they were told one victim had none, because his Covid death came in the form of a fatal motorcycle accident.
In this episode of Behind The Deep State, host Alex Newman breaks down the "Great Reset" being pushed by the World Economic Forum and the United Nations. As part of this agenda, the globalist elites plan to transform everything from the economy and companies to individuals' mindsets. Basically, it means an end to freedom and the much-heralded New World Order.
A Kentucky couple has been placed under house arrest for refusing to sign a document saying they would self-quarantine after one of them tested positive for COVID-19, reports Louisville’s WAVE-TV. Elizabeth Linscott, of Hardin County, Kentucky, was planning to visit her parents in Michigan. Her grandparents also wanted to see her, so she decided to get tested for the virus before making the trip. Her test came back positive.
The biometric digital identity platform Trust Stamp, which claims to “evolve as you evolve,” is to be introduced in “low-income, remote communities” in West Africa as part of a partnership between the Bill Gates-supported GAVI vaccine alliance, Mastercard, and the “identity authentication” firm Trust Stamp.
Speaking on the South Lawn of the White House on Thursday afternoon, President Trump celebrated his administration’s success in rolling back regulations that were stifling the economy under the previous administration: Before I came into office, American workers were smothered by a merciless avalanche of wasteful and expensive and intrusive federal regulations.
Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said Friday that government leaders should be “as forceful as possible” in getting Americans to wear face masks in order to curtail the spread of COVID-19, which Fauci asserts is only in the first phase and is “likely” to be followed by more pandemics in the future.
“Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!” Or maybe Bill de Blasio could just say, “What, me worry?” But what the former Sandinista supporter and now esteemed New York City mayor did say, on Wednesday, as Big Apple crime surges, is that “for seven years, we have made this city safer and safer.”
In typical 1984/Orwellian “Freedom Is Slavery” style, an art curator has just been forced out of his job and characterized as a “toxic white supremacist” — for not being a total anti-white supremacist. Specifically, he said during a diversity discussion that the work of white artists would still be considered.
In an apparent attempt to avoid a confrontation with President Donald Trump, or lawsuits in court, Defense Secretary Mark Esper announced a new order that effectively bans the Confederate “battle flag,” without specifically naming it, but leaves — at least for now — the issue of military posts named after Confederate generals alone.
The city council of Asheville, North Carolina, voted 7-0 on Tuesday in favor of a resolution, which will give reparations to “black Asheville” in the form of tax dollars which will be targeted to the city's black community. Reparations will not be paid to individual citizens but will include provisions for increasing minority homeownership, access to affordable housing, increasing minority business ownership opportunities, promoting “generational” wealth equity and closing gaps in education, healthcare, employment, and criminal justice.
Well, Flippy finally has a new job. It was March when I reported on the burger-flipping kitchen worker, who does his job dutifully, never goes home, doesn’t get sick or take bathroom breaks and won’t unionize — and can be had for $3 an hour. He’s also a non-citizen who doesn’t need a visa and doesn’t care if you have a beef with his taking your job. Flippy, you see, is a robot.
Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf accused Portland’s Democrat leadership of enabling the violent “mob” of rioters and looters that has assaulted federal buildings and kept the city in chaos over the last six weeks, posting a timeline that details the extensive damage “violent anarchists have caused.”
It seems today's Hollywood actors have now taken a back seat to the politics of athletes. From the BLM activism of Colin Kaepernick, to the antisemitic statements of DeSean Jackson, to the Communist China touting LeBron James. This along with the rampant cancel culture as seen against New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees should serve as a wake up call to all freedom loving Americans.
Senator Josh Hawley is submitting a request to the Justice Department to start a civil rights investigation into the St. Louis district attorney seeking to indict the infamous couple who drew guns on the Black Lives Matter agitators who broke into their private neighborhood and allegedly threatened them on their property.
Leftists always want to ration goods and services because they think they are scarce. To the leftist-progressive mind, resources are always finite, and there are never enough to go around. In the year of COVID-19, this is applied to hospitals in general and intensive care units in particular. There aren’t enough to go around, they claim, so we have to devise a way to keep people from using up these scarce resources. Indiscriminate lockdowns are the methods chosen.
Left-wing university administrations and the big business lobby scored a major win over the Trump administration this week when the White House agreed to cease its plan to deport foreign college students enrolled only in online classes, rather than in-person classes, in the fall. The administration announced last week that international students must transfer or leave the country if their school classes are to be held only online. This was to restore the regulation that already existed prior to being suspended by DHS in March as an accommodation for the COVID-19 outbreak.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics announced on Friday that wholesale prices dropped by 0.2 percent in June. Economists were expecting an increase of 0.4 percent. Confounding those economists further, wholesale prices have dropped by nearly one full percentage point over the last year. Common sense says that when the supply of money and currency increases, price increases are sure to follow.
Despite liberals bashing the Paycheck Protection Program as a handout for the rich, at least 18 progressive groups with ties to billionaire George Soros applied for and were green-lighted for federal loans meant to help small business owners amid the COVID-19 crisis, receiving up to $20 million total in taxpayer dollars.
Get ready for a lot less freedom and prosperity, and a lot more government — at least if the elites get their way. After greatly supporting coronavirus lockdowns that crushed the economy and funding and championing the terrorizing of populations with riots over supposed inequality, Deep State globalists are stepping in to offer their proposed “solution” to the crises they themselves unleashed: A “Great Reset” to transform the world and everything in it, supposedly for the benefit of the masses, but really for the benefit of the ruling classes.
There won’t be a comeback for ousted Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Sessions, who stepped down as attorney general at President Trump’s request in 2018 due to differences over the Russia investigation, failed in his bid to win his old Senate seat in Alabama on Tuesday night, losing to Trump-supported former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville.
Shortly after GOYA CEO Bob Unanue said that the U.S. was “blessed” to have a president such as Donald Trump, whom he also described as a “builder,” the cancel-culture mob on the radical progressive Left, such as self-proclaimed “democratic socialist” Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), have called for a “GOYAWAY” boycott of GOYA Foods – the nation’s largest Hispanic owned company, which was founded by immigrants from Spain in the 1930s.
In confronting the spread of SARS-CoV-2, pubic health experts assured policy makers that millions could die. As a result of their terrifying prophecies, governments around the world, and especially Democrat governors in the United States, rushed to institute draconian lockdown measures that crashed business, spiked unemployment, disrupted supply chains, and cratered personal incomes, among other things.
A Belgian woman allegedly murdered two of her children and tried to kill another because of guilt over an abortion, reported Australia’s 7News. Julie Lambotte, a resident of the southern Belgian city of Hantes-Wiheries, aborted an unborn girl three years ago when the baby was found to have Down syndrome and a heart defect. (In Belgium, as in many other European countries, over 90 percent of Down-syndrome babies are aborted.)
Maybe it’s a sign we need to MAGA — Make the Army Great Again — but a diversity-oriented handout issued by that military branch actually listed President Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan as a possible sign of white supremacist tendencies. The Army said in a statement last Wednesday that the July 6 material, provided to troops and contractors at Redstone Arsenal in Alabama, was issued in error and that it’s investigating the matter. Of course, this doesn’t explain why such a handout was created in the first place.
When Scott Rasmussen tried to explain the reasons behind Trump’s sudden jump in the polls among male voters, he suggested it was “a positive response … to the president’s speech at Mount Rushmore ….[with] many Republicans consider[ing] it a strong appeal to unity. The new numbers may also be partly in response … to media criticism of the president.”
Secretary of State Michael Pompeo issued a statement on Monday directly and forcefully challenging China’s claims to most of the South China Sea: Today we are strengthening U.S. policy in a vital, contentious part of that region — the South China Sea. We are making clear: Beijing’s claims to offshore resources across most of the South China Sea are completely unlawful, as is its campaign of bullying to control them….
Before our Black Lives Matter moment, one had not thought of the NBC networks as shot through with “systemic racism.” Yet, what other explanation is there for this week’s draconian personnel decision of NBCUniversal chairman Cesar Conde. According to Conde, the white share of NBC’s workforce, now 74% and divided evenly between men and women, will be chopped to 50%.
It’s good to be a Biden. The Biden family has a long history of runs-ins with the law, from drug possession to drunk driving to theft, yet none of those involved have ever done jail time, according to a review of public records by the New York Post. The former vice president’s brother, Frank Biden, was caught driving under the influence in Fort Lauderdale in 2003, but got off with six months of probation.
In this episode of Behind The Deep State, host Alex Newman discusses the constitutional doctrine of nullification. When the states joined together to create the federal government, they only surrendered a few defined powers to their creature. All other powers not delegated to the feds were reserved to the states and to the people. And yet, today, improperly citing the "Supremacy Clause" of the U.S. Constitution, the national government acts like any unconstitutional statute it may create is "supreme" over states. This is a lie. As Thomas Jefferson and James Madison both explained, states have a duty to reject and resist these usurpations. Even local governments have an important role to play in interposing. The doctrine of the lesser magistrates standing between a higher magistrate and the people is well established in the Bible and Christian tradition, too.
A spokesman for Minnesota Governor Tim Walz said on Friday that Walz’s request for federal funds to rebuild Minneapolis following the George Floyd-inspired riots was denied: “The Governor is disappointed that the federal government declined his request for financial support. As we navigate one of the most difficult periods in our state’s history, we look[ed] for support from our federal government to help us through.”
“This what democracy looks like! Whose streets? Our Streets! This what democracy looks like!” You’ve no doubt witnessed some of the televised “protests” and heard these chants emanating from Seattle’s own “people’s republic,” which has dubbed itself the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, or CHAZ, (although some residents of the barricaded six-block area prefer to call their “liberated” zone CHOP, for Capitol Hill Occupied Protest, or PRCH, for People’s Republic of Capitol Hill).
In this interview with The New American's Alex Newman, Common Core Diva Lynne Taylor warns that globalists and educational totalitarians are moving in for the kill on private and home education. She says government money and benefits will be the key to the takeover. And then, all children will be learning the same globalist curriculum.
The “Unity Task Force” convened by presumptive Democrat nominee Joe Biden and former campaign rival Bernie Sanders has produced their recommendations on how the United States should tackle the so-called “climate emergency.” And it’s every bit as extreme as you would expect when you consider that Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) was one of the chairs of the committee.
New legislation by progressive “Squad” members Representatives Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley would enact a radical transformation of law enforcement in America, eliminating life sentences, expunging drug crimes retroactively, and permanently closing prisons and immigration detention centers, among other changes.
In a wide-ranging interview with Forbes released on Wednesday, music mogul Kanye West had strong words for the Democrat Party. West suggested that the party, and in particular presumptive nominee Joe Biden, are guilty of emotionally blackmailing him and other Blacks into voting Democrat. On July 4, West announced on Twitter that he was running for president as a third-party candidate on the new “Birthday Party” ticket.
To avoid becoming yesterday’s man who gets cancelled today, everyone now needs his own metaphorical statue to topple. Though lacking a football field to kneel on, Prince Harry, the transplanted royal pain in the Left Coast, has found his. He’s throwing shade on what the sun has already set on: the British Empire.
Black Lives Matter activists continued to reveal their true colors, even as the mainstream media persists in trying to paint the movement as a peaceful campaign for equality. Activists are now advocating for Americans, especially black Americans, to abstain from spending money on non-black-owned businesses.
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled today that state, county, and local prosecutors can pursue criminal subpoenas on sitting presidents, but that a subpoena from Congress, particularly for a president’s personal papers or information, cannot trespass the separation of powers. The first case involved a subpoena from leftist New York County District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance for President Trump’s tax returns and other records, which replicated a subpoena from the House Committee on Oversight and Reform that was the subject of the second case.
Stacey Abrams, the former minority leader of the Georgia House of Representatives and failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate, says the U.S. Constitution is to blame for the beginning of “the practice of voter suppression.” Her comments come as the Left in America continues to push for universal mail-in voting for the 2020 election despite concerns of voter fraud.
Because of supposed police injustice against blacks and cities burning from riots, some are calling to nationalize local police forces, but that just takes away local control. Using George Floyd’s death as a rationale, some Americans want to transfer more police authority away from local and state government, and into the hands of the federal government. This supposed solution to any problems of local law enforcement is as dangerous as it is nonsensical, and it would lead to less, not more, respect for the rights of individuals — of all ethnicities — in our country.
It appears that Black Lives Matter activists have reached peak insanity. The latest from a member of the Marxist-controlled group that’s promoting violence across the country is this: Unlike Black Lives, mathematics don’t matter. The right answers when adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing aren’t really right — or wrong
In this interview with The New American magazine's Alex Newman, education expert Bruce Deitrick Price explains that the public school system is deliberately dumbing down the nation's children. From teaching to read using quackery to outlandish pedagogy on math, Price says the consequences of this disaster will be catastrophic. He also offers some ideas on how to fix the problems with K-12 education.
Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, responding to weeks of violent protests in Atlanta that have seen 30 people wounded and five killed by gunfire over the July 4 weekend, issued an executive order on July 6 declaring a state of emergency across Georgia and authorizing the activation of up to 1,000 Georgia National Guard troops. Among those killed was an eight-year-old girl, Secoriea Turner.
When Steve Schmidt, the former senior campaign strategist in John McCain’s losing 2008 bid for the presidency, was asked why he helped found the Lincoln Project, he said nearly all that needed to be said about his political philosophy: “The analogy would be in the same way that fire purifies the forest, it needs to be burned to the ground and fundamentally repudiated. Every one of them [senators who support the president] should be voted out of office, with the exception of Mitt Romney.”
Portland is a city with a long history and reputation of supporting left-wing politics and offering a home to like-minded social misfits. That reputation has come back to haunt the city in a big way, as for 39 straight days domestic terrorists have engaged in protest after riotous protest in a misguided attempt to “burn the system down.”
In this episode of Behind the Deep State, host Alex Newman breaks down some of the amazing history leading up to the Declaration of Independence. Alex especially focuses in on the Christian roots of the Declaration and the little-known facts that are crucial to understanding American history. He also discusses the Black Robe Regiment and the key part played by pastors in the war for independence. Americans will never defeat the Deep State if they don't understand their own history and who they are.
So, are you ready for Kim Kardashian in the White House? Rapper and producer Kanye West set off his own fireworks July 4, announcing on Twitter his intention to run for president. And despite America’s falling statues and virtues, it became the day’s news. But is West’s move more artifice than ambition?
“Democrats encourage it because they think it is a distraction, that their agenda can skate by unnoticed — they see it as a supplement to the radical movement in the streets,” he declared. Black Lives Matter-aligned rioters, emboldened by the death of George Floyd and the capitulation of political leaders it has provoked, began by targeting statues linked to the Confederacy. But their attention has now broadened to nearly any historical monument.
In announcing that he had signed an executive order creating a National Garden of American Heroes during his Mt. Rushmore speech on Friday night, Trump displayed a masterful understanding not only of the national psyche but how such an order would put his critics on the defensive. The national psyche is fed up with destruction, especially of national monuments celebrating American heroes. It reflects an increasing level of disgust and distrust of the national media, which opposes “everything Trump.” His executive order is a mark of political genius.
In a new set of coronavirus guidelines, the California Department of Public Health requires houses of worship to end singing and chanting — and discourages church attendance in general. The guidelines were released at the beginning of July and warn that “convening in a congregational setting of multiple different households to practice a personal faith carries a relatively higher risk for widespread transmission of the COVID-19 virus, and may result in increased rates of infection, hospitalization, and death.”
It is becoming increasingly clear that revolutionaries wreaking havoc in the streets and their allies in the Deep State are using old communist tactics to wage war on America. The cure for COVID-19 was apparently — a riot? At least it seemed like it there for a minute. One day, the establishment claimed it was murder to go out in public for anything “non-essential.” The next day, not going out in public and assembling in large crowds was tacit support for “systemic racism” and “white supremacy.” Even leading public officials agreed.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif) has criticized President Trump over the “Russian bounties” controversy and now wants the president to brief all of Congress about the unverified allegations, yet sources report that Schiff’s office was briefed on the matter back in February but the congressman took no action.
The United States of America declared its independence on July 4, 1776. More than 240 years later, that independence is being threatened like never before. July 4 is a purely American holiday that speaks to our faith as a nation. As Thanksgiving Day is about returning thanks for God's providence in sustaining the early colonists through a hard and desolate period, Independence Day is about the faith that compelled us to declare our independence from a tyrannical power. It is interesting that the United States celebrates the day we declared our independence instead of the day we obtained it. It is doubtful that one in a hundred Americans can tell you the date the Brits surrendered or when England recognized us as a free and independent nation, but most Americans are at least vaguely aware that we declared ourselves independent on July 4, 1776. We considered ourselves free when we declared it; we did not need the recognition of our captors to make it so.
If “Jane Doe” is telling the truth, Ghislaine Maxwell is guilty of far more than the six felonies with which federal prosecutors charged her on Thursday. Doe says the mega-wealthy British party girl, arrested for sex crimes the feds allege she commited against three girls with deceased Wall Street financier Jeffrey Epstein, raped her at least 20 times.
President Donald Trump’s remarkable speech at Mt. Rushmore on Friday night — Monica Showalter, Deputy Editor at American Thinker, called it “his finest speech ... the speech of his presidency” — not only celebrated the giants whose faces are carved into the granite wall behind him, but also called out the enemies of the republic.
Forbes published an apology essay on Sunday by Michael Shellenberger, a former environmental activist, but for whatever reason — perhaps bowing to pressure from left-wingers on staff, or something else — the magazine has since removed it. In the op-ed, Shellenberger explained, “I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years.” Shellenberger added in a tweet on Monday, “On behalf of environmentalists, I apologize for the climate scare. Climate change is real but it’s not the end of the world. It’s not even our most important environmental problem.”
A very large study of the potential role of hydroxychloroquine in preventing COVID-19 has restarted after a regulatory body in the UK re-approved the work. Known as the COPCOV study, it is being conducted by the MORU Tropical Health Network. MORU is an acronym for the Mahidol Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Unit, part of Mahidol University in Thailand.
New York officials are issuing subpoenas and threatening fines against a group of partygoers who allegedly refuse to cooperate with contract tracers who want to ask them about their participation at a gathering that is believed to have been a coronavirus cluster. The eight individuals have reportedly dodged communication with tracers after attending a Rockland County party hosted last month in New York City at which the host exhibited symptoms of COVID-19. According to officials, those who refuse to cooperate will be fined $2,000 for every day of noncompliance.
One county sheriff in Florida has had enough of Black Lives Matter propaganda and the anti-police rhetoric being spouted by various members of the media. On Tuesday, Sheriff Daryl Daniels of Clay County, Florida, warned would-be rioters that he will make “special deputies of every lawful gun owner” in his county should he feel that protesters are becoming too much to handle.
Walmart has announced it will no longer sell products that feature the phrase “All Lives Matter” because, the retail giant claims, it minimizes “the focus on the painful reality of racial inequity.” In its announcement to indefinitely discontinue sales of all third-party merchandise with that particular language, Walmart claimed it “fundamentally” agreed with the sentiment, but wanted to be respectful of the sensitivities of the current climate.
It wasn’t a week ago that this site published the article “On Mob’s Side, Government Tells Citizens: You’re on Your Own — but Don’t DARE Defend Yourself.” It related the story of a Virginia mother and young child who, being attacked by a “protesting” mob, were told by a dispatcher there was nothing the police could do and that they should complain to city hall. And now, mere days later, comes the story of a husband and wife who defended themselves from a mob and now are fighting city hall — in fact, they may face criminal charges.
Some may wonder if the NBA now stands for No Brains Anymore or, perhaps, if the NBA has become an NPC. Whatever the quip, what sounds like a joke but isn’t is the latest National Basketball Association news: When the league launches its abbreviated 2020 season July 30 in Orlando, it will allow players to replace their names on their jerseys with a “social justice statement.”
Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, said Tuesday that a virus found in pigs in China has similarities to the 2009 Swine Flu and the 1918 Pandemic Flu and could potentially pose a threat in the future.
The first week of July is typically a joyful occasion, with Americans celebrating their nation’s independence on July 4 and Canadians celebrating Canada Day on July 1. This year, July 1 also marks the first day that the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement goes into force, replacing the original 1994 North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), and economically integrating the three countries one step closer toward a regional customs union.
Americans can lay to rest any doubts they had about what top Democrats think about this country thanks to an ill-considered tweet from party chieftains that they quickly removed. On Sunday, the party’s official Twitter account briefly featured a post that called President Trump’s planned July 4 rally at Mount Rushmore an event “glorifying white supremacy,” and linked to an article from the Guardian, the hard left, anti-American, anti-Christian British newspaper.
In this special July 4 Independence Day episode of Behind the Deep State, host Alex Newman goes through the U.S. Declaration of Independence and the critical biblical principles that underpin it. Alex explains how knowing who we are as Americans--especially including our history and our founding documents--will be critical in defeating the Deep State and its globalist agenda. Finally, Newman talks about how the principles in the Declaration such as "all men are created equal" and are "endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights" led to eradicating slavery and equality before the law. Don't let the Deep State erase America's incredible history or the amazing fruit produced by its founding!
In an opinion piece appearing exclusively at the Western Journal on Monday, General Michael Flynn warned, “There is now a small group of passionate people working hard to destroy our American way of life. Treason and treachery are rampant and our rule of law … [is] under the gun.… These passionate two percent appear to be winning.”
The group chanted “What do we want? Dead cops!” and advocates “disrupting the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement.” But that hasn’t stopped Senator Mike Braun (R-Ind.) from supporting Black Lives Matter and pandering to it by proposing a bill that would further handicap police, say critics.
Barely four days after 145 people were shot in Chicago from June 19-22, another weekend began with 20 shot in 24 hours. The weekend ended with more than five dozen shot and 18 dead. That latest weekend shooting tally will bring the total for 2020 to nearly 1,600 shot, if not more, and well past 300 dead.
More than 400 current students and alumni from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University in New Jersey have signed a letter to the school's administration demanding, among other things, that the school pay slavery reparations and abolish the school's police force.
In this interview with The New American's Alex Newman, British film producer Mark Sutherland gives an update on Brexit and warns about what is happening in the United Kingdom. He says the European Union has been "destroyed" by Coronavirus. Sutherland also points out that despite the government being led by the "Conservative" Party, Britain is moving further and further in the direction of the totalitarian left, where even the most basic rights such as free speech are under threat. Beware, because this insanity is coming to America soon!
There’s suddenly a lot more at stake in the 2020 election. In a 232-180 vote on Friday, House Democrats passed a bill to make Washington, D.C,. the nation’s 51st state. Democrats have long wanted to make a state out of America’s capital, arguing that residents of the city deserve to have representatives in Congress.
When Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan sent city crews in to reclaim the six blocks seized by anarchists following the death of George Floyd in May, she no doubt was expecting compliance. After all, she had given in to some of their demands, including cutting some funding to the Seattle Police Department. She also offered social services to them in order to “encourage those living overnight in Cal Anderson [Park] to begin leaving the area or, if experiencing homelessness, to take [advantage of] an offer for shelter,” all at taxpayers’ expense.
Shouldn’t they be hiring social workers to protect them? After the Minneapolis City Council on Friday unanimously approved a proposed amendment that will allow the dismantling of the police department, it came to light that three of those council members hired private security at a cost of $63,000 (thus far), or $4,500 a day, to taxpayers.
The coronavirus panic and associated lockdowns are having “devastating” effects on children, including post-traumatic stress disorder, a British children’s charity warns. In a new report, the Childhood Trust says it “is extremely concerned about the ways in which this crisis is adversely and disproportionately affecting disadvantaged children and young people.”
In a new poll released by Just the News in conjunction with veteran pollster Scott Rasmussen, registered voters were asked if biological males identifying as female should be allowed to compete in women’s sporting events. A vast majority of those polled said that so-called transgender females should not be allowed to compete against actual females in sporting contests.
With the Senate confirmation of Judge Cory Wilson to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday, the president has now successfully appointed 200 judicial nominees to the federal bench. As CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin put it, “Judicial confirmations may be President Trump’s most important legacy. They will shape the nation’s laws on abortion, LGBT rights, voting rights, and many other issues long after Trump leaves office.”
While many would say our country is currently doing a good job of destroying itself, experts warn that we could have some frightening help — in the form of a Chinese surprise “Pearl Harbor” attack on our electric grid using stolen American technology. An “electromagnetic pulse” assault would, many say, plunge us into a massive, long-lasting blackout and halt modern life.
“If Joe Biden is elected, he will surrender your country to the mob,” President Donald Trump told an enthusiastic crowd inside Tulsa’s Bank of Oklahoma Center Saturday night, indicating that Trump intends to make Biden either repudiate the violence that has enveloped America’s cities, from Seattle to New York City, or embrace it.
Pollster Zogby Analytics asked more than a thousand likely voters earlier this month if they thought it was likely that presumptive Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden was suffering from the early stages of dementia. The results: “A majority (55%) of likely voters surveyed thought it was more likely … that Vice President Biden is in the early stages of dementia.”
The tragic death of George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer has become the pretext for the Marxist and Leninist Left in America to tear down statues of American history, push for the renaming of military bases named after Civil War generals, pressure the Hollywood “cancel culture” to axe popular television shows such as Cops, and call to defund police departments in favor of funding “community organizations” agitating for even more radical leftist demands. Sadly, the halls of Congress are not immune from this insidious anti-police push.
Two days after a black man, Rayshard Brooks, was shot and killed by an Atlanta police officer while being arrested for public drunkenness, the CEO of Chick-fil-A, Dan Cathy, said that white Christians need to repent of their racism. Speaking at Passion City Church in Atlanta on Sunday, Cathy said that to show black people that white Christians are serious about that repentance, they should shine the shoes of black people as way of expressing their “shame.”
Scott Minerd, global chief investment officer at Guggenheim Partners, told CNN on Tuesday that the next effort by the Fed to keep the U.S. economy going will be to start buying U.S. stocks. As The New American has reported, the Fed has already expanded its powers so that it can purchase exchange-traded bond funds, junk bonds, and now corporate bonds.
The media is panicking over Trump’s first rally since lockdown. People started lining up on Monday for the Saturday-evening rally at BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The mayor says he is expecting more than 100,000 people trying to get into either the center or the alternate site next door. Together the two venues can hold 60,000.
Who fact-checks the fact-checkers? After one its stories was dubiously slapped with a “partly false” rating from Facebook fact-checking partner Lead Stories, The National Pulse dug into the platform’s staff and found that many, including the top brass, are Democratic Party donors and former CNN employees.
George Floyd’s brother, Philonise Floyd, is calling on the United Nations to investigate “police brutality” and racism in the United States. “The way you saw my brother tortured and murdered on camera is the way black people are treated by police in America,” Philonise Floyd told the UN at an “emergency meeting” of the globalist organization’s Human Rights Council, from which President Trump withdrew America in 2018.
In a Wednesday morning monologue on MSNBC, liberal news host and former Republican Representative from Florida Joe Scarborough accused social-media giant Facebook and its founder Mark Zuckerberg of promoting right-wing extremism. In a nearly seven minute temper tantrum, the mercurial talk-show host lambasted Zuckerberg for making money off of ad promotions which Scarborough claims have been used in the killing of a federal officer.
The establishment would like nothing more than for the American people to forget all about Jeffrey Epstein and his peculiarly extensive list of powerful friends, but truth-seekers know better. Epstein isn’t significant merely for his own heinous crimes, but because he serves as a crucial piece in understanding the workings, nature, and aim of the global elite who seek to establish a New World Order.
In 2005, scientist and futurist Ray Kurweil raised eyebrows with his explosive book The Singularity is Near. Concerning the possibility that humans will “transcend biology,” Kurzweil noted: “The singularity will be a merger of our bodies + minds with our technology. The world will still be human, but transcend our biology’s roots. There will be no distinction between human and machine — nor between physical and virtual reality. If you wonder what will remain unequivocally human, it’s this quality — our species inherently seeks to extend its physical and mental reach beyond current limitations.”
In the current climate of “race before everything else,” it seems likely that Joe Biden, the presumptive Democrat nominee for president, will be pressured into picking a black woman for his running mate. But according to some black Democrats, there's at least one white woman that might also be an “acceptable” choice — Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren.
Are the days of Silicon Valley’s autocratic reign numbered? Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) on Wednesday introduced legislation that would give Americans the ability to sue major tech platforms such as Google and Facebook if they selectively censor political speech. On the same day, reports say the Justice Department is preparing to remove legal immunities currently enjoyed by those companies.
The Food and Drug Administration has reversed course on its Emergency Use Authorization for hydroxychloroquine for the treatment of COVID-19. In a letter discussing the revocation of the EUA for the drug, FDA chief scientist Denise Hinton said the agency no longer found the drug likely to be effective in treating COVID-19.
The Boy Scouts of America is the latest organization to join the social-justice bandwagon sweeping the nation following the death of George Floyd, showing solidarity with Black Lives Matter (BLM) by unveiling a “diversity and inclusion” merit badge that will be required to attain the rank of Eagle Scout — BSA’s highest rank. Remember that BLM is a group that is pro-communist, anti-American, and anti-police. Just five years ago, its members marched chanting, “Pigs in a blanket. Fry like bacon!” It seems that to BSA police lives don't matter.
By last Friday, 200,000 people had signed up online to request a ticket to Trump’s grand opening in Tulsa on Saturday, June 20, the first in a series of reelection campaign rallies. Trump’s campaign manager, Brad Parscale, tweeted: “Trump MAGA Rally in Tulsa is hottest ticket ever! Over 200k tickets already & it’s not even political season.… Gonna be GREAT in the most open state in the nation!”
The next wave of Big Tech purges has arrived. Google cracked down on two right-of-center news and commentary outlets for allegedly racist coverage of the George Floyd riots this week, demonetizing the website ZeroHedge by banning it from the Google ad platform and threatening to do the same to The Federalist, prompting the latter to fall into compliance.
The Black Lives Matter "cancel culture," which says its critics are “racists” who must be fired, silenced, and hounded from public life, has at least one prominent opponent on the Left: Jonathan Turley, a law professor at George Washington University, says the campus Left is crushing dissent from ideological orthodoxy and threatening free speech and intellectual inquiry in academia.
The ironies of the so-called anti-racism protests across the country are legion. Black-owned businesses have been destroyed. Black people have been killed. And now a monument to a 19th-century abolitionist has been defaced. The statue of Matthias William Baldwin that has stood in front of Philadelphia’s City Hall since 1936, 30 years after its creation, was tagged with the words colonizer and murderer in the early days of the protests — probably Memorial Day weekend.
Generations of Americans observing from afar the violent socialist revolutions on other continents likely felt comfortable in the misguided belief that such uprisings could never happen here. But for anyone paying even a modicum of attention to current events, that illusion is now shattered forever.
In the private capitalist system, capital-intensive industries such as oil and gas production need all the capital they can get in order to survive. Banks that are doing their usual spring cleaning — called reserve review and assessment followed by “redeterminations” — are discovering that many of their loans to shale-oil drilling enterprises don’t have enough reserves backing them up in case they default.
In this episode of Behind The Deep State, host Alex Newman explains how and why the establishment is trying to demonize local police and sheriffs that are accountable to their local communities. One of the goals of this unrest is to nationalize and globalize American law enforcement to pave the way for tyranny, as proven by their own documents and statements. Obama and the UN were both open about the goals.
Contract tracers working for the city of New York reportedly are not permitted to ask anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 if they have attended any recent protests, despite the lack of social distancing at those events and their likelihood for allowing the virus to spread to other individuals.
During the COVID-19 scourge, Planned Parethood, a regular recipient of taxpayer funding, also applied for additional federal dollars through the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). Funds from this program launched during the COVID-19 pandemic were supposed to be granted only to small busineses having fewer than 500 employees. Planned Parenthood’s employee level exceeds that number, so it cleverly arranged for affilates to receive some funding. Through its affiliates, Planned Parenthood took in $80 million, and some of its employees may have relied on fraud when applying for the funds.
Tennessee Governor Bill Lee put out a warning to rioters and anarchists seeking to replicate Seattle’s autonomous zone, saying that “lawlessness, autonomous zones, and violence will not be tolerated.” According to the Tennessean, activists aligned with the recent protests over the death of George Floyd intended to set up their own autonomous zone within the state’s capital.
In an opinion piece that stretches the boundaries of logic and reason even for a newspaper as liberal as the New York Times, Mariame Kaba attempts to blow away the cobwebs and clarify what liberal groups such as BLM and Antifa mean when they say “Abolish the Police.” The answer is in the title of her article: “Yes, We Mean Literally Abolish the Police — Because Reform Won’t Happen.”
The cultural Marxists have now declared war on the Founding Fathers as race-hustling CNN personality Angela Rye called for all statues of George Washington an Thomas Jefferson to be taken down on Thursday. Rye, an attorney and the founder of IMPACT Strategies, a left-wing political advocacy group based in Washington, D.C., made the remarks on CNN Thursday. She was responding to Daily Beast editor John Avlon's contention that George Washington focused his life on trying to unite the nation.
The decision to move the Republican Party’s National Convention from Charlotte, North Carolina, to Jacksonville, Florida, was announced with a flourish on Thursday night. Said Ronna McDaniel, the chair of the Republican National Committee : We are thrilled to celebrate this momentous occasion in the great city of Jacksonville. Not only does Florida hold a special place in President Trump’s heart as his home state [he and Melania officially moved there from New York City in November 2019], but it is crucial in the path to victory in 2020...
Police and crime expert Heather Mac Donald told the U.S. House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that white cops do not disproportionately kill black suspects and are less likely to shoot them than minority cops. The message: Contrary to the narrative from Black Lives Matter and the anti-cop mainstream media, the unfortunate death of George Floyd at the hands of police was an outlier and not typical of police in general or their interactions with black Americans in particular.
Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan (D), shown, brushed off concerns over the “cop-free” Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, in which agitators riding the wave of anger over the death of George Floyd have set up barricades and posted armed guards to keep out police — effectively creating an independent nation within six blocks of the city’s downtown.
