Are environmentalists behind California’s wildfires?

A couple weeks back, Gavin Newsom, the Democrat governor of California, stood in the midst an area ravaged by a recent wild fire and blamed man-made global warming for the problem. Well Newsom is right about thing, the fires are man-made, but man-made by environmentalists as many suggest their insane policies embraced by the political left are in fact the biggest problem.

Poll: Americans want Supreme Court appointment done this year

With the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a massive controversy erupted in the US over whether President Trump should appoint her replacement now or if it should wait until after the federal election on Nov. 3, 2020, meaning it probably wouldn’t happen until 2021. The Democrats and social activists are screaming it shouldn’t be made during an election year, while those supporting the Republicans are shouting fill the seat before the federal election. We know what the political activists are saying, so what do the people want? Well, according to a poll conducted by Marquette University, 67% want the appointment done before the federal election. The Blaze explains. A majority of Americans support filling a Supreme Court vacancy during an election year, according to a poll taken just days before Ruth Bader Ginsburg died. […] The Marquette University poll found that two-thirds of American adults — a whopping 67% — support conducting the Supreme Court confirmation process during an election year, while just 32% of respondents said they oppose it. Among political …

BLM removes section about disrupting family unit

With many people, including Blacks, starting to turn against the Black Lives Matter (BLM) organization, it is now trying to scrub it original goals from the internet. One of those included its highly controversial plan to “disrupt” the family unit. The Blaze explains: The main Black Lives Matter website has apparently deleted its “What We Believe” manifesto, which included calls for the disruption of the nuclear family. When you try to find the original page that contained that statement, all you find is a blank/not found page. However, The Blaze also provides the original statement before it was deleted: We are self-reflexive and do the work required to dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence. […] We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.

Chicago tries to stop church service as lawlessness reigns

When worship leader Sean Feucht showed up in Chicago on Sept. 16, 2020 to hold another of his outdoor, “Let Us Worship” events, the city’s Democrat Mayor Lori Lightfoot welcomed them with police, in an effort to stop these believers from gathering. However, that didn’t stop them as they just turned the worship service into a protest worship march. CBN explains: Worship leader Sean Feucht and evangelist Dr. Charles Karuku arrived in Chicago on September 16 at the latest stop of this summer’s “Let Us Worship” tour that has seen tens of thousands of people celebrating Jesus in outdoor worship events around the country. In a video posted on Twitter, the Christian leaders explained that police officers blocked the group from gathering, so the event was set up in the roadway. Christ-followers united in a large gathering where many people were baptized and others received the gift of salvation.

BLM founders: More ties to communism?

A video surfaced earlier this year of one of the founders of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) organization, Patrisse Cullors, claiming she was a Marxist. The Daily Caller explained what happened recently with Alicia Garza, another of BLM’s co-founders: Black Lives Matter co-founder Alicia Garza’s new organization, Black Futures Lab, is fiscally sponsored by the Chinese Progressive Association, which organized the raising of communist China’s flag over Boston City Hall last year. The “donate” button on Black Futures Lab’s website takes users to a donation page hosted by the CPA, which notes that “Black Futures Lab is a fiscally sponsored project of the Chinese Progressive Association.” The partnership between the two groups was first reported by the Daily Signal on Tuesday. The CPA last year sponsored the raising of the Chinese flag over Boston City Hall to mark the 70th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party creating the People’s Republic of China. The event sparked a protest from demonstrators opposed to the Chinese government’s actions in Hong Kong, 7News Boston reported at the time.

More Blacks protesting against BLM

We have seen Blacks in the past protesting against the Black Lives Matter (BLM) organization because they do not believe it represents them. READ: WATCH: Black Woman Pours Paint Over BLM Street Art: ‘All Lives Matter!’ ‘We’re Taking Our Country Back!’ ‘Refund The Police!’ The Blaze pointed to another example on Facebook of several black people explaining why they are opposed to Black Lives Matter. The video posted on the Daily Wire‘s Facebook page has been shared 5,900 times. The Blaze provides a few of their quotes: “They’re full of hate. Nobody listen to them. Don’t listen to them. Don’t try to understand them. Why? They are full of hate. You don’t need it. America don’t need it.” “In a black neighborhood, black-on-black crime is real. … White people aren’t doing anything to them.”  “I’m black, 52, I’m not oppressed. Ain’t nobody oppressing me. America’s more free than it’s ever been.”   “They don’t know who they’re mad at. Remember, this started with George Floyd. It went from George Floyd to now, it became the white people. Then …

Stillborn deaths surged during COVID lockdowns

I have previously reported on how many are suggesting the lock downs have done more damage than the virus. Suicides are up. Depression is up. Drug abuse is up. Alcohol abuse is up. Unemployment up. There have been lots of “unintended consequences” as a result of the COVID lockdowns. Add one more to the list. Reports are coming in from around the world that the number of stillborn deaths surged during the pandemic as pregnant women, either hindered by lock down restrictions or fears of COVID, did not seek medical help. Some countries reported that stillborn deaths were up 50%. The Blaze reports: An array of studies show that stillbirths have surged globally following lockdowns imposed in an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19, and researchers speculate the link could be from pregnant women avoiding hospitals and clinics out of fear of catching the virus while seeking prenatal care. Nature cited a slew of studies this week in reporting that stillbirth rates have risen “dramatically” since the pandemic began, and that “emerging data link disrupted …

Sweden video: Count the number of face masks

Undoubtedly, many of you are wondering how things are going in Sweden these days. Sweden never instituted a lock down deciding the best way to combat COVID was through herd immunity, letting people get it, and build up an immunity to the virus. (80% of the people who catch COVID will have little or no symptoms.) It worked, the pandemic is essentially over in Sweden. This video from Stockholm uploaded on Sept. 11, 2020 kind of explains it all. Make sure you have your calculator out to keep track of the number of people wearing face masks. (Note there are face masks, just not the COVID kind.)

Minneapolis city council wonders why crime is rising

Minneapolis council members have been criticizing the police and calling for the department’s defunding since George Floyd’s death at the end of May. In June, the Democrat council voted to unanimously to abolish the police department. So, people were caught off a bit off guard during a two-hour meeting discussing police reform, when city politicians started complaining to the city’s chief of Police about rising crime rates:

Has Hollywood been bought and paid for by CCP?

Filmmaker Judd Apatow says that Hollywood has been quiet about what is going on in Communist China, because of the money it receives from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The Daily Wire explains: Filmmaker Judd Apatow said in an interview this week that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has managed to force Hollywood to self-censor the content it creates by buying off the industry. Apatow made the remarks during an interview with MSNBC’s Ari Melber while talking about how the industry censors content to avoid upsetting other nations. “A lot of these giant corporate entities have business with countries around the world, Saudi Arabia or China, and they’re just not going to criticize them and they’re not going to let their shows criticize them or they’re not going to air documentaries that go deep into truthful areas because they make so much money,” Apatow said, noting that the censorship “completely shut(s) down critical content” about important issues. “Instead of us doing business with China and that leading to China being more free, what has happened …

Did COVID lockdowns just turn political?

With the number of COVID deaths declining in California, many are wondering why politicians are continuing to lock down the state? Well, according to Real Clear Politics, we may have been given a clue recently when Dr. Barbara Ferrer, the Los Angeles County Public Health Director, discussed the matter with school administrators. Apparently, someone recorded parts of that conference call.

Why are new COVID cases surging in France and Spain?

Europe is experiencing its second wave of COVID, with France reporting 10,000 new infections a day and Spain hitting 12,000 new cases a day. Several other European countries are also reporting increases as well. The Daily Mail explains: France‘s daily coronavirus cases have topped 10,000 for the first time while Spain’s have rocketed to 12,000.  The countries’ soaring case numbers have led to fears that the UK, which has seen its daily case figures steadily rise since August, could be heading in the same direction.  On Friday, the UK announced 3,539 new daily coronavirus cases – the highest toll in four months. […] And Spain announced a whopping 12,183 cases on Friday, bringing the total to above 566,300 just four months after the country’s low of 132 new cases on May 25.  But fortunately, the number of new deaths is not climbing as fast as the new cases during the second wave. The Daily Mail also explained why: Health bosses said most of the new infections in the UK were young people, many who only had mild or …

Portland: Man arrested for allegedly trying to set fire to hotel gas line?

According to Andy Ngo, a man was recently arrested for allegedly trying to set fire to a gas line for a hotel in Portland: I am not familiar with this type of stuff, but I suspect setting fire to a gas pipeline could be extremely dangerous. Andy Ngo then cited a tweet of the woman who allegedly reported the incident. The police told her that the local DA would probably just release the guy in a few days: Not sure this is related, but….

A 5-minute video on China’s downward spiral

China’s recent dark turn can be blamed on its current despot for life Xi Jinping, who is turning the country back to the dark days of communism. And oh yeah, below is a video on the term “useful idiots,” referred to in the video above. Vladimir Lenin, the founder of the former communist Soviet Union, came up with the term to describe people who paved the way for the introduction of communism into a nation. We see them at work in the West today. Allen West explains:

The church is facing battles on every side

2020 has been a very unusual year for the church as we face attacks on every side. We have states such as California determined to stop churches from reopening. The state is imposing massive fines if churches do and court cases are being launched over the constitutional right of believers to practise their faith. And recently a different battle has emerged in the state of Washington. With the help of Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), Cedar Park Assembly of God in Kirkland, Washington is taking the state of Washington to court because of a law the state assembly passed in 2018 requiring churches to provide abortion coverage if it also provided maternity benefits to its workers. According to ADF, what is particularly disturbing is that failure to comply could not only result in fines but as well imprisonment. ADF noted that the law as it stands does not provide a religious exemption. As a result of the law’s passing, insurance companies began to insert abortion coverage in the Cedar Park’s plan. In its brief to the …

Did Disney thank Communist agency running China’s gulags?

In the credits for its recent movie, “Mulan,” Disney thanked the Turpan Municipal Bureau of Public safety based in Xinjiang, China where Disney filmed its show. This is the same city where the Communist Party of China has allegedly set up internment camps to detain Uighurs and apparently the agency that Disney thanked, allegedly runs those camps. The Daily Caller explains: Human rights groups have largely stayed silent on Disney’s collaboration with Communist China despite China’s laundry list of human rights abuses. In the credits of Disney’s newly released “Mulan,” Disney thanked the Turpan Municipal Bureau of Public Safety, a Chinese agency allegedly responsible for running internment camps that detain Muslim minority groups, according to the BBC. Disney also filmed “Mulan” in Xinjiang, China, where the Chinese government has reportedly imprisoned Uighurs.

Meanwhile, in Sweden

Britain, like most countries, implemented a nation-wide lockdown in an effort to stop people from catching COVID. However, Britain is now bracing for its second COVID wave as new cases surge among people who didn’t catch the virus the first time because of the first lockdown. As a result, Britain is introducing a second lock down. In addition to a 10 pm curfew, Britain is introducing a rule of six. The Daily Mail explains: NEW LOCKDOWN RULES FOR ENGLAND FROM MONDAY  * Max social gatherings SIX PEOPLE * Applies indoors and outdoors * Applies in private homes * Applies in pubs and restaurants * Does NOT apply to schools or workplaces * Does NOT apply to weddings, funerals, team sport * Does NOT apply if household bubbles are bigger than six people * Police will be encouraged to break up larger groups and issue £100 fines, which will then double on each repeat offence up to £3,200 And oh yeah, government officials are threatening more severe restrictions if people don’t obey these.

Why do BLM protestors burn down black businesses?

This is not the first time it happened. But people are asking why are Black Lives Matter protestors burning down black-owned businesses? It happened again in Rochester, NY. The Blaze explains: Jesse Barksdale, the black owner of a Rochester, New York, multipurpose store that leases U-Haul vehicles, was reportedly “livid” after Black Lives Matter demonstrators reportedly set fire to at least three of his trucks in the early hours of Sunday morning. Poll: What is the most important issue for you in the 2020 election? A sign hangs outside of Barksdale’s business — “Proud to be Black Owned” — but that apparently didn’t stop who are believed to be Black Lives Matter demonstrators from burning down his business.
