Daily News Roundup

Daniel Payne contributor to Just the News: . . .the contrast could hardly be more striking between Democratic cynicism about the vaccine program under Trump and the party’s aggressive championing of vaccinations under Biden.

Jack Gleason contributor to Canada Free Press: What happens if the recipient receives blood from several vaccinated donors, each with a different vaccine type? How will multiple vaccines react inside a single person?

World Net Daily: Americans are just starting to discover that most of what they thought they knew about the pandemic has been not just a lie, but in many cases a Big Lie – the opposite of the truth, intentionally meant to deceive and manipulate entire populations. At the same time, the reality of safe, effective, inexpensive and readily available medications that can both treat and prevent COVID infection has been ruthlessly suppressed at every turn.

DeAndre Hopkins wide receiver for the Arizona Cardinals in a now deleted tweet: “Never thought I would say this, But being put in a position to hurt my team because I don’t want to partake in the vaccine is making me question my future in the NFL.”

Thomas Lifson contributor to American Thinker: Therapies for Covid using ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine, and other substances, are available and are increasingly recognized and used , despite studied medical establishment disinterest in testing and proving their effectiveness, and even efforts to suppress their use.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in a 7/212/21 press conference: “These shots need to get in everybody’s arms as rapidly as possible or we’re going to be back in a situation in the fall that we don’t yearn for, that we went through last year. This is not complicated.”


Gonzales: The Eyes and Ears of the King
Armed with a $2 billion war chest, the Capitol Police announced its plan to open field offices outside Washington for the first time. New imperial outposts are planned in California and Florida, with more to come across the country as the Capitol Police intend to monitor Americans from sea to shining sea. As part of this change in mission, new toys are required. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin recently approved a request by Capitol Police for the loan of eight “persistent surveillance systems,” technology originally deployed by troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. What empires do to foreigners abroad, they eventually do to citizens at home. The system allows for persistent, high-definition, night-vision-capable surveillance of vast geographical regions. Capitol Police officials remain reticent about how and against whom this technology will be used—and luckily for them, as an agency of the legislative branch, they are exempt from the prying eyes of the Freedom of Information Act. The system allows for persistent, high-definition, night-vision-capable surveillance of vast geographical regions.

Winters: EXC: Daszak’s Donors Are Bankrolling An ‘Independent’ COVID Commission.
The Covid Commission Planning Group – the foremost effort to launch an “independent” inquiry into the origins of COVID-19 – is supported by organizations that have funded the work of longtime Wuhan Institute of Virology partner EcoHealth Alliance. Entities funding the task force – the Rockefeller Foundation, Skoll Foundation, and former Google CEO Eric Schmidt’s philanthropic fund – have decades-long ties to Peter Daszak’s EcoHealth Alliance. The effort, headquartered at the University of Virginia’s Miller Center, is the brainchild of Schmidt, who has also served as Executive Chairman of Google’s parent company Alphabet: . . . […] “If Congress does establish its own commission, Zelikow said, his group would be willing to share its work. But if the government does not act, Schmidt said he was confident that he could raise enough money for the group directed by Zelikow to go forward on its own,” a New York Times profile added. The committee is comprised of over two dozen scientists and former public officials and seeks to “prepare the way for a national Covid commission.” To do so, it has “debriefed more than 200 experts from a range of disciplines, outlined plans for nine essential task forces, and mapped out dozens of distinct lines of inquiry.”

Codevilla: Why Not Award Ashli Babbitt’s Killer the Medal of Honor?
What follows describes our oligarchy’s terrible trilemma concerning their narrative of January 6. Multiple sources—chiefly the U.S government by its efforts to hide him—identify Capitol Police Lieutenant Michael L. Byrd as the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt as she was attempting to climb through a window to enter the House Speaker’s lobby that day. Were this identification incorrect, the certainty that the correct one is surfacing in secretless D.C. reminds our oligarchy of how hazardous are the foundations on which it set the ruling narrative that it narrowly thwarted the supposed “greatest menace to our democracy since the Civil War”—armed, white insurrectionists in the act of overthrowing the U.S. government, by courageous police work and prosecutions. From Joe Biden to the lowest ranks of the Justice Department and the media, the oligarchy had bet, in the name of national security, it could stonewall for the long run about who exactly did what on January 6. A forlorn bet, especially since the narrative on which the oligarchy rests its right to intimidate its opponents depends so much on affirming the virtuosity of its acts of oppression—foremost of which was shooting and killing Babbitt. But if the killing was a salvific act, why hide the killer? Why not celebrate him?

Kelly: A January 6 Detainee Speaks Out
He corroborates accounts from other detainees, including reports of abuse by prison guards, inedible food, and zero access to the outdoors, religious services, or physical activity. […] “Curzio does not engage in destructive or violent behavior, and does not appear to encourage or discourage disorderly conduct,” government lawyers wrote in a March motion. “Curzio remains a defendant with a violent criminal history who unregretfully traveled over 900 miles to join a wild mob, unlawfully entered the Capitol, defied a police order to leave, and committed offenses that threatened the governance of the Republic.”
Keep in mind, they are referring to four misdemeanors. […] Curzio also corroborated firsthand accounts and videos showing law enforcement officers assaulting protesters. “We were demonstrating peacefully on the west side of the building, singing and flying our flags. We were telling the police we were there to support them, that we back the blue.” Sometime between 1:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m., Curzio said, cops started attacking them. “Out of nowhere, I hear flashbangs flying into the crowd. Cops were running up to the front lines spraying people with mace. One guy was just walking by the line and three cops grabbed him and threw him to the ground. They had things that looked like paintball guns filled with chemicals and they were spraying us then shooting rubber bullets.” That’s when things got worse, Curzio said. “Families and kids were there. It was chaos. That’s when you started to see people scuffling with the police.”

Clark: Girl Scouts Push ‘Anti-Racism’ Guide That Claims Color-Blindness ‘Perpetuates Racism’
The Girl Scouts told its membership that taking a color-blind approach to life “perpetuates racism,” and parents must have conversations about race and racism “regularly” with their daughters to counterbalance this narrative. The organization released an online resource for parents designed to help their kids “take action against racism.” Much of the data and resources cited in the article are inspired by “anti-racism” and critical race theory. The resource is primarily aimed at encouraging white parents to have conversations with their children about their privilege. […] White Girl Scouts were encouraged to look at the power structures within their neighborhood and school to determine their privilege and understand racism. […] Among the resources was a link to the nonprofit organization The Conscious Kid, which made headlines for hosting a training session that told Hasbro employees that babies as young as three months old can show racial preferences. The Conscious Kid is also linked to the “cancellation” of Dr. Seuss books and Nickelodeon’s race-based special. The nonprofit also teamed up with Google’s charity arm to create an “anti-racist” book list for K-12 teachers.

(Alternatives to the Girl Scouts – from 2015) ) Newsmax: 5 Christian Alternatives to the Girl Scouts
Everyone knows the Girl Scouts and the extremely popular cookies they sell. What people may not know is that the Girl Scouts have been around since 1912, and their mission, is to build “girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.” Recently, this mission has wavered in the eyes of many conservative Christians. “The steady decline in youth and adult participation in Girl Scouts is at least in part attributed to sex education decisions made by Girl Scout national leaders . . .[…] If you are someone who is interested in finding something different for your daughter instead of the Girl Scouts, here are five alternatives. 1. American Heritage Girls . . . […] 5. Frontier Girls The Frontier Girls, which has been around since 2007, isn’t necessarily a Christian group, but seeks to ” restore a focus on good moral character, patriotism, community service, and a love of learning that is being lost.

O’Neil: Was Biden Involved? YouTube Removes Video on Vaccine Parental Rights
The Biden White House has bragged about working with Big Tech to silence misinformation about COVID-19 vaccines, mentioning a “disinformation dozen” people. On Tuesday, White House Communications Director Kate Bedingfield expanded the misinformation alarm from the “disinformation dozen” to “conservative news outlets.” Meanwhile, YouTube had deleted a video that mentioned the COVID-19 vaccine — but focused on Washington, D.C.’s new legislation that threatens parental rights. On Friday, Family Research Council (FRC) President Tony Perkins interviewed Mary Holland, president and general counsel of Children’s Health Defense. While Holland and her organization oppose many vaccines, she focused on the issue of parental rights in her interview with Perkins. On Monday, YouTube removed the video for “medical misinformation.” FRC appealed the decision that very day, and on Tuesday, YouTube rejected the appeal. Perkins had interviewed Holland on Washington Watch, a program broadcast on nearly 800 Christian radio stations as well as Christian TV.

Hoogstraten: Stop using toddlers as pawns in the COVID war games
Maddie, my three-year-old daughter, is home this week because one of her classmates tested COVID positive. You read that right. It’s July 2021, but our toddler, who is at virtually no risk of transmitting or getting sick from COVID, is forced by the ruling class to be out of school, as are her 23 tiny classmates.
So while I try to do work as I listen to Maddie talk to her imaginary friends, I’d like to pose a question to those making and enforcing policy in Sacramento and Los Angeles. When is it enough? […] Safetyism has obviously infected the highest levels of state and county governments. Yet, for now, we are autonomous people living in a free-ish country where citizens make their own decisions. Every time I strap my children into their car seats I take a calculated risk. Riding scooters down our block, letting Maddie jump into the pool without a floaty, watching her climb massive playground structures on the fly? Risk taken, risk accepted. Going to school when one of 24 children tested positive a few days ago? It’s just ignorant to think that risk is greater — or that anyone but her parents should make that call.

Hoft: EXCLUSIVE: More Evidence Leaked from China on the Deliberate Release of COVID-19 by the Chinese Military
The following information was provided by a source inside China who has knowledge of the circumstances and has been vetted. […] A fully formed sample of COVID-19 was ready for testing in early 2019, while a parallel vaccine program was underway. Scientists from the Wuhan Institute of Virology were chosen to participate in non-human primate (monkeys) transmission testing, simulated coronavirus release and response exercises such as at Wuhan’s Tianhe airport in September 2019 and an actual test release of COVID-19 at the 2019 Military World Games from October 18–27, 2019. The source mentioned special health screenings at the Military Games, perhaps as a means of monitoring the results of a small, short-term test release of COVID-19. A statement allegedly made by a Chinese People’s Liberation Army officer at the time was “Let the white pigs have some.” The release of COVID-19 at the Military World Games was also a test of the longer term effects of that type of bioweapon because foreign visitors to the Games would carry it back to their own countries and the consequences could be observed.

Greenfield: Biden Frees Al Qaeda Commander Who Blew Up Buddhas
And expressed support for killing Jews. […] As the Taliban retake Afghanistan, Biden’s decision to free Abdul Latif Nasir signals support for the Jihadists and for the North African Muslim Brotherhood regime that agreed to harbor Nasir. There were plenty of reasons to keep Abdul Latif Nasir safely locked up in Gitmo. Even the Obama administration, which made it its mission to free every Islamic terrorist, was having trouble springing Nasir. Government documents describe the accused Al Qaeda terrorist as an explosives instructor who also trained Al-Qaeda recruits in the “use of the AK-47, rocket-propelled grenades, Beka machine gun, and mortars” and received “advanced training in explosives and poisons at the chemical laboratory” at Osama bin Laden’s Mall Six Compound. Nasir admitted to being “the emir of al-Qaida fighters at the Kabul front” and had been in charge of 250 Jihadists at Tora Bora. He’s young enough, in his fifties, to jump into any one of a number of conflicts, and he has the kind of experience that would be invaluable to Al Qaeda and ISIS.

Campus Reform: Cuban Immigrants Warn Students About Marxist Indoctrination
Campus Reform video reporter Addison Smith spoke with several Cuban protestors outside of the White House earlier this week. They were urging President Biden to intervene in the Cuba Crisis, but also had a warning for college students about Marxist indoctrination on campus. […] “When Fidel Castro the Dictator came into power… He took the guns from everybody, and then he killed the smart, intelligent intellectuals… And then, they indoctrinate everybody: They send them to schools — to special schools — to indoctrinate you.”

Fitzwilson: Why The Debt Ceiling Matters To Deplorables.
With the extension of the U.S. debt ceiling looming, ones head can spin listening to explanations as to why it is important to do the extension or not. At some level, most people understand the concept of too much debt and living beyond ones means. The difficulty is that these conversations quickly become mired “in the weeds” with the jargon of economists and Wall Street types. The listeners and readers quickly lose interest. The numbers are huge, but isn’t the deficit about other people? The answer is no. It is about us, collectively. But the impact will be felt disproportionately by each person, and each family. Let’s start with the foundation. Our financial system is underpinned entirely by debt.

Arizona Free Enterprise Club: Biden Administration Wants to Silence People They Don’t Agree With
“We’re flagging problematic posts for Facebook that spread disinformation.” Those were the words of White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki last week, and they should send chills up and down your spine. It’s bad enough that we already have Big Tech playing speech police on a daily basis. Now, the federal government is flagging “problematic posts” FOR Facebook?!? But this level of government censorship and collusion doesn’t stop with Facebook. Psaki turned around the next day to say that if you’re banned from one social media platform, you should be banned from them all. And she admits that the White House hasn’t taken any options off the table when it comes to exercising more control over social media platforms. For the record, that also appears to include censorship of your text messages. (That’s right. They’re even trying to get your phone carrier involved). So, just to recap. The federal government, which is supposed to uphold the U.S. Constitution, is actively aiding social media companies in censoring and banning Americans. Has anyone in the Biden administration read the First Amendment? Surely President Biden must have at some point. After all, he’s been in public office since the 1970s. But Biden took it a to a whole other level, accusing Facebook of “killing people” for allowing “COVID misinformation.” That’s certainly an interesting attack considering Facebook has been a willing partner in censoring people. But apparently, the social media giant hasn’t gone far enough for President Biden’s tastes.
So, what exactly do the Democrats mean by “misinformation”?

Catenacci: Democrats Revive Kavanaugh Sex Abuse Allegations, Slam FBI’s 2018 Probe
Senate Judiciary Committee Democrats demanded this week that the FBI hand over additional information related to its 2018 investigation into Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The Democrats led by Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse and Chris Coons raised a series of questions about the FBI’s handling of its sexual misconduct probe into Brett Kavanaugh in response to a letter the Bureau sent them in June. They expressed particular concern that the FBI had received more than 4,500 tips and shared ones deemed “relevant” to former President Donald Trump’s White House. […] The lawmakers asked the FBI to share additional details including how tips were considered to be “relevant,” how many tips it shared with the Trump White House, whether tips were ever fully investigated and if the Bureau still had copies of the tips. The lawmaker also asked why potential witnesses identified through the tip line were never contacted or interviewed.

Pullmann: Wokeness Means Forcing Everyone To Live Inside The Prison Of Mental Illness
What is at the core of insanity? It is quite simply the refusal to acknowledge or attempt to befit oneself to reality. It is imprisoning yourself inside your own mind’s fantasies about what the world ought to be, what you want it to be, instead of what it truly is. This is easily apparent in any sustained encounter with America’s homeless, most of whom are quite obviously mentally ill. It is also often apparent in any sustained encounter with someone for whom leftist politics functions as a religion. One senses in such encounters the uncanny eerieness of having somehow entered an internally closed loop, a spiral from which there is no escape, and the assumptions underneath it are absolutely not up for question. The assumptions are many, they are often vague and undefined, and they are unquestionable. Try, and you risk being viciously attacked.

The Scoop: Nature Is Racist? ‘Systemic Racism’ Blocks Black People From Going Outdoors
A report published by Outside Interactive alleged that America’s historically racist policies have contributed to “the nature gap,” resulting in black Americans having less enjoyment of the so-called “great outdoors.” Erin Key, the report’s author, is pushing for minorities to use their free time outdoors in nature through the use of grants and advocacy work. She does not, however, mention that there are no modern laws prohibiting non-whites from visiting public nature sites.

Tapson: Surviving Socialism
A new documentary delivers an alarming message. […] How did America get to the point where a passion for socialist revolution is spreading like wildfire among our youth? A brand new documentary addresses this disturbing trend and makes an airtight case that socialism inevitably (and swiftly) leads to widespread economic misery and loss of personal freedoms, while the free market leads inevitably to widespread prosperity. Surviving Socialism, produced by the Tea Party Patriot Foundation and Ground Floor Video, directed by Luke Livingston, and written by Jake Tower, premieres at the Anthem Film Festival in Rapid City, South Dakota on Friday, July 23. […] The 62-minute Surviving Socialism largely features attractive and articulate young patriots like Morgan Zegers, founder and CEO of Young Americans Against Socialism; star commentator Candace Owens; and Scott Presler, the gay conservative activist who took the initiative to lead volunteer cleanups in Democrat-led urban centers across America, to the tune of over 105 tons of trash. The documentary also features distinguished thinkers and courageous journalists like Antifa target Andy Ngo, as well as actual survivors of socialism who can attest from grim personal experience that socialism does not alleviate suffering but imposes it. Zegers points out that left-wing young people today are . . . […] Lee Edwards, Distinguished Fellow at the Heritage Foundation, notes that under socialism, “There is no private sector, no private property… no place for the free market.” He also explains, in response to the frequent argument that true democratic socialism has never really been tried, that it “has been tried, in three quite different democracies”: in the kibbutzes of Israel, in newly-independent India under Nehru, and in Labor Party rule in the United Kingdom after World War II
[…] Surviving Socialism addresses how the left indoctrinates schoolchildren with a sense of fear and urgency about saving the planet from evil capitalism, and exploits kids to agitate for socialist change. Candace Owens, mincing no words, calls this tactic . . . […] The film then shifts to a discussion of how the left uses identity politics to divide and conquer, creating social tensions that lead to increased demands for the redistribution of wealth – like the racial agitation of the Marxist revolutionaries of Black Lives Matter.

Hoft: PURE EVIL: Pelosi Echoes Eugenicist Margaret Sanger and Promotes Abortions for Poor Women (VIDEO)
In 2014 the Daily Caller unearthed video of American birth control activist Margaret Sanger (here called Margaret Slee, which was her second husband’s name) sternly demanded that women of the developed world have “no more babies.” Fast forward to July 22, 2021. Democrat Speaker Nancy Pelosi promoted abortions for poor women today. Margaret Sanger would be so proud. And she did this while promoting her Catholic upbringing. Evil.

Richards: Gavin Newsom invites world’s homeless to California
California Gov. Gavin Newsom pledged to house and feed the world’s homeless population this week during a whirlwind “Comeback California” tour that is designed to stave off a September recall by angry voters. The Golden State is already cracking under the weight of the nation’s largest homeless population and one of the worst economic climates post-COVID-19. With millions of middle-class residents and business owners fleeing to red states, those left behind have seen a burgeoning lower class emerge. Gasoline is pushing $5 a gallon, 180,000 homeless pack into all the blue cities, and dilapidated freeways are strewn with trash. […] It’s against this backdrop that Newsom held a press conference Monday pledging $12 billion to combat homelessness on top of billions that have already been spent. People will be taken care of, and anyone who wants to avail themselves to the California dream is welcome, he said in response to a reporter who asked whether he expected the nation’s homeless to descend upon California with this new expenditure.
