Antifa rules the streets of Portland and sows chaos in many other American cities. Millions of Americans don’t like Antifa, but many struggle to figure out who these black-masked radicals really are. (Snip)Antifa, short for “anti-fascist,” is a far-left movement dedicated to fighting whatever its adherents think is fascism. It’s a loose organization without a clear structure or public leaders. Its name comes from a Communist-organized group in Weimar Germany. (Snip) most American Antifa would better be described as anarchists rather than Communists.(Snip) they don’t target capital. (Snip) They don’t try to shut down banks or financial institutions. They focus exclusively on enemies they share with mainstream liberals—Trump supporters

Yes, this is television by Royal Appointment. Harry’s TV Burp and Meghan Behaving Badly, anyone?
Down The Origin Of COVID-19 17 replies
Jonathan Latham, Ph.D., and Allison Wilson, Ph.D., a virologist and a geneticist, respectively, have a plausible story to tell about the origin of SARS-CoV-2 — the cause of COVID-19. It begins with a mystery disease that struck six Chinese miners in Yunnan province in 2012. These miners became ill while shoveling bat feces (guano) produced by Rhinolophus sinicus, a species of horseshoe bat, which was abundant in the mine. The illness of the miners was later described in detail throughout a master’s thesis entitled “An Analysis of Six Severe Pneumonia Cases Related to Unknown Viruses,” written in 2013 by Li Xu. The patients were remotely observed by Zhong Nan Shan,
Every left-wing radical who thinks of himself as a “journalist” with his camera phone and Twitter account knows the pathway to success and a mainstream media job: first, you create a crisis of whatever size possible. Perhaps it’s about race or #MeToo or some obscure LGBTQ matter; ideally, it involves all three of those things. Promote it no matter what the facts may be. Then attack the Right and Fox News for it, regardless of the truth. It worked phenomenally well for Ben Smith, the former editor of Buzzfeed who rode his lies and misinformation all the way to a cushy job with the New York Times.

Nancy Pelosi Defies COVID Rules, Privately
Visits Hair Salon… 12 replies
Comrades, those who create the COVID rules will never actually comply with the COVID rules; the reason,… they know the COVID rules are about control, not a virus. Today House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visits a hair salon: …”owner Erica Kious said that Pelosi had an appointment with a stylist who rents space in the Union Street salon. “It was a slap in the face that she went in, you know, that she feels that she can just go and get her stuff done while no one else can go in, and I can’t work,” Kious reportedly said about Pelosi.

‘inherent contempt’ procedure to
compel witness testimony 4 replies
A group of House Democrats called for the chamber to resurrect its rarely used “inherent contempt” power on Monday after a federal appeals court dismissed a lawsuit by the House Judiciary Committee to enforce a subpoena against former White House Counsel Don McGahn. The committee was seeking testimony from McGahn on President Trump, and the full D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals had previously ruled that the House could sue to enforce the subpoena, but that McGahn should have the opportunity to argue that it was too broad. A three-judge panel on Monday agreed, upsetting Democrats, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who said it was “a challenge to our system of
Confirmation’ Basement Biden Will
Participate in Presidential Debates 9 replies
President Trump’s campaign is requesting “written confirmation” that Joe Biden (D) will participate in the three in-person presidential debates this fall following last week’s remark from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who told reporters that there should not be any debates between the two. The Speaker became the latest high profile Democrat to discourage Biden from participating in the upcoming presidential debates, predicting them to be nothing more than an “exercise in skullduggery.” “I wouldn’t legitimize a conversation with him nor a debate in terms of the presidency of the United States,” she said. Her remarks prompted the Trump campaign to send another letter to the Commission on Presidential Debates,
Political Violence 4 replies
As their preferred candidate crashes in national polls and the race tightens to a dead heat in Joe Biden’s must-win states, NeverTrump “conservatives” are once again taking their marching orders from Democrats. The death, destruction, and mayhem besieging Democratic-run cities across the country, NeverTrump dutifully recites, is all Donald Trump’s fault. Team Biden crafted the inane talking points to deflect concerns that the violence in cities such as Portland and Kenosha rapidly was backfiring on Democrats; scenes of angry mobs attacking Trump supporters, including Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and his wife, leaving the White House late Thursday night after the president’s speech accelerated those worries.
