Rioters have attacked and looted numerous businesses in the city of Minneapolis over the death of George Floyd. The city’s leadership appears unable or unwilling to end the violence, despite the overwhelming damage it has already done to the community. President Trump called out Minneapolis’ mayor and vowed to take swift action.

I don’t think there was a single American who was not heartbroken and outraged over the death of George Floyd. Video footage appears to show police brutally mistreating the man, then ignoring his pleas for help. It was a clear example of police brutality and requires serious action from all levels of authority.

But that is exactly what’s happening. Not only were the men involved fired, but an investigation has been underway. Not only that, but the DOJ and FBI are also investigating. Not once have we seen anyone ignore this situation or try to dismiss it.

Despite the fact that justice is being done, hundreds of “protestors” have stormed the city of Minneapolis. Claiming they are acting in support of George Floyd, they are setting fire to numerous buildings—including a police precinct—and looting stores. Some business owners have been forced to stand guard with firearms to protect their livelihoods.

The pathetic mayor of Minneapolis appears unwilling to bring the situation to an end—despite the danger and massive loss to the city’s economy. Now, President Trump is vowing to take action.

President Trump took to Twitter early Friday to vow military support for the governor of Minnesota after another night of violent protest in Minneapolis, which included a police station being overrun and set on fire.

“I can’t stand back & watch this happen to a great American City, Minneapolis,” Trump tweeted. “A total lack of leadership. Either the very weak Radical Left Mayor, Jacob Frey, get his act together and bring the City under control, or I will send in the National Guard & get the job done right.

A second tweet continued, “These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let this happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you.” [Source: Fox News]

It is wholly unacceptable for these rioters to destroy their own city over Floyd’s death. How is that going to bring justice for his family? How is that going to end police brutality or acts of racism? Attacking your own community is like shooting yourself in the head because you have a migraine.

But it’s clear these “protests”—now spreading to other cities—are not about George Floyd. His death is being used by political operatives to manipulate and stir up the black community just before the election. Or is it a coincidence this happened just days after Democrat nominee for president Joe Biden let slip his own racist sentiments?

Black Lives Matter and the rich Democrats behind it are trying to distract from reality. They don’t want black Americans thinking for themselves and making right choices. Instead, they want to stir up their anger, fear, and hate—all in the name of pushing their political agenda.

They don’t care how much damage this will bring to largely black communities. As Candace Owens wrote, “The race riots of the late sixties should served as a lesson: when black Americans began looting, burning, and rioting in Detroit and Chicago, the white business owners abandoned those flourishing cities, plunging them into the poverty and crime-ridden hubs that we see today. When we riot, we harm NO ONE BUT OURSELVES.”

Hopefully, the National Guard will bring order to this chaos. But it will not change the schemes the left uses to control and oppress black Americans.

The only solution is for all Americans to reject this party’s toxic, evil agenda.

Democrats across the country have been pushing mail-in voting as a result of COVID-19. They claim it’s “too dangerous” for Americans to vote in November, despite all 50 states reopening. In Texas, Democrats tried to let voters request ballots, simply because they didn’t have the disease. But the Texas Supreme Court had a different take on the matter.

Why is mail-in voting so dangerous? After all, most election boards use the mail to get you registered. For years, Americans unable to vote in person used absentee ballots. Why shouldn’t we wholesale move the entire thing over to mail-in voting?

Because Democrats have been trying to cheat the system for years. These are the same people who oppose voter ID laws, meaning anyone can show up and pretend to be someone they’re not. Mail-in voting eliminates that one, thin line of accountability. Anyone can take a ballot from someone’s mailbox and fill it out themselves. And that’s just for starters.

You could imagine that in Texas, mail-in voting would be opposed strongly by the local government. But they do have a system that lets people request mail-in ballots. Only if they are disabled or over 65. Democrats wanted to change the rules, so that anyone that isn’t immune to COVID-19 can claim they are disabled.

But the Texas Supreme Court struck it down.

The Texas Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that a lack of immunity to the coronavirus does not qualify as a disability under state law for requesting a mail-in ballot.

The all Republican-court agreed with Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who had filed a petition to order local officials to follow state laws regarding mail-in ballots after a Court of Appeals ruled to allow anyone in Travis County to request a ballot, according to FOX 7 in Austin.

President Trump, who has repeatedly claimed that mail-in voting is associated with widespread voter fraud, tweeted after the ruling.

“Big win in Texas on the dangerous Mail In Voting Scam!” the president wrote. [Source: Fox News]

If someone does have COVID-19 by the time of the election, they can request a mail-in ballot. But not having the disease cannot be considered a disability by any stretch of the imagination. You can see how Democrats were trying to cheat the system, to open up the possibility of voter fraud.

If anyone could receive a ballot because they aren’t immune to COVID-19, then expect a flood of requests across the state. Thousands of people would suddenly want a mail-in ballot, despite having an actual disability.

But these wouldn’t be honest-to-goodness Americans, wanted to participate in our democracy. It could very well be Democrat activists who are simply harvesting mail-in ballots, to fill out as they please.

Don’t think they would do it? This is the same party that impeached Trump over a phone call. Of course, they would do it.

There is a slim chance mail-in voting could work, if state election boards managed it very strictly. If they knew ballots were being delivered directly to the right people. If they could ensure nobody would intercept them or coerce people into voting for someone. If they knew the Post Office would never misdeliver or lose a ballot and get them all in on time.

Are you thinking what I’m thinking? Yeah, seems pretty hard. Perhaps having a system where voters go to a designated place to vote, where they have the freedom and privacy to select the candidate of their choice, and they can watch as their vote gets counted is the way to go.

Oh, that’s what we already have. It’s called an election.

President Trump called out the Democrat governor of North Carolina that he’d move the GOP convention if he didn’t give him a firm answer. Despite that, the governor continues to play games, perhaps hoping to interfere with the Republican event. A Democrat from Charlotte openly said the convention would not happen. Now, Trump is giving the state a short deadline to make up its mind.

The Republican National Convention is slated to occur on August 24, in Charlotte, NC. But like so many other states ruled by a Democrat dictator, the governor has not been open about what will happen. Most states have clear plans for reopening after the pandemic, including plans to restart large events. But the Democrat governor of North Carolina refuses to give Trump a straight answer: will the GOP be able to hold their event or not?

You can imagine that a Democrat governor would not want the convention to happen. Why would he cooperate with a party he hates and a president he does not want to win? But giving Trump a clear answer today would mean the GOP could quickly change plans and move to a more accommodating city. The governor’s refusal appears more like a scheme to spoil the entire event.

Now, a local councilman is blaming COVID-19, saying the convention cannot happen.

It’s pretty idiotic to think that the country should remain in partial lockdown by August, but that is what this local councilman is saying. It’s hard not to believe this partisan Democrat is just making excuses. But the president is not playing games. He intends to hold the convention. And he’s giving the governor a deadline.

President Trump warned on Tuesday that North Carolina’s governor has “a week” to figure out if the Republicans’ presidential nominating convention can be held in Charlotte this summer, as other states offered to hold the gathering instead. [Source: Fox News]

The governor is clearly playing for time. He doesn’t want to give the president a straight answer, so he’s saying he wants “in writing” the Republicans’ plan to deal with COVID-19. Bogus. We are already seeing cases drop. Hospitalizations and deaths are in rapid decline. By mid-June, most people won’t even be talking about COVID-19. For anyone to think it will be a major problem by August, they are simply ignoring the data.

But is not about the virus, this is about petty Democrats trying to interfere with Trump’s campaign. They’ve been doing that since 2016. Frequently, Democrats in local cities and states have tried to mess with Trump’s historic rallies. They’ve hit the campaign with last minute, massive “security” fees. Democrats have tried to deny the Trump campaign from access to buildings and venues. These pathetic liberals think they can strongarm Trump, hoping to prevent the massive momentum that continues to bring him success.

Already, numerous states have encouraged Trump to move the convention. Georgia and Florida have offered venues for the big event. You can except many leaders would love to see the convention hosted at one of their cities. A huge event like this means a big injection of cash into the local economy. What leader wouldn’t want to see that happen, after months of stagnation?

Honestly, Trump shouldn’t have to bother with this joke of a governor. There are plenty of better places to host the RNC, other than Charlotte, NC. Let some worthy city gobble up those millions of dollars in revenue.

When the people of North Carolina are outraged that they missed out, they have only one person to blame: Roy Cooper.

Recently, news has swirled that the White House is preparing to address social media’s censorship of conservatives. This comes as more evidence emerges that Facebook and other giant sites are cracking down on speech as we near the election. Mike Pence was asked about Silicon Valley’s history of censoring conservatives. He made this vow.

For years, we’ve seen major social media platforms adjust their speech rules to single out conservatives. They’ve claimed they are trying to create “safe” and fun environments for everyone. But it appears their “anti-hate” speech guidelines disproportionately affect Trump supporters. If you are a liberal, you will most-likely not face any repercussions for breaking their rules.

Conservatives, on the other hand, deal with countless ways social media sites delegitimize their opinions and content. From removing blue check marks to shadow banning their pages, social networks have invented all kinds of ways of stopping users from finding or respecting conservative speakers.

During the COVID-19 outbreak, social media sites have taken greater steps to push their political agenda. Walking in lockstep with Democrats, China, and WHO, sites like Facebook and YouTube have taken down legitimate sources of information that contradict their agenda of fearmongering and prolonged lockdowns.

They’ve turned the issue into a political battle, with conservatives seeking facts and freedom and liberals demanding fear and punishment. It is just the latest example of liberal social networks abusing their power to limit free speech online.

Mike Pence recently discussed this issue, promising that the Trump administration will not tolerate it.

“Well, the president has made it very clear that we are not going to tolerate censorship on the Internet and social media against conservatives,” Pence said. “We’re just not going to tolerate it.”

Pence, in his interview with Breitbart News, made clear conservative media voices are key to the public getting accurate information in this election year. Pence said that given the fact the vast majority of the establishment media has gotten several major stories—from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation to impeachment and more—wrong, the public needs more voices not less to get the truth. [Source: Breitbart]

Pence’s words echo recent news that the White House is considering a panel to address censorship on social media. The panel would review complaints of bias against conservatives on major websites like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and more. It could involve the creation of a new commission to oversee this endeavor.

The president might also push agencies like the FCC and FEC to investigate bias online. With each new election year, social media sites find new ways to silence or marginalize conservative voices. Even as more and more conservative figures gain popularity, the left is desperately trying to silence them.

The inconvenient reality is that these websites are privately-owned companies and are not beholden to the First Amendment. But nobody in their right mind would defend the practice of American companies silencing the free speech of their users.

Imagine going into a restaurant and being told you could not talk about what you wanted? What would happen if your office denied you the right to speak your mind? Could any brick-and-mortar company get away with silencing or censoring Americans who visit them?

Then why is it allowed online? Why are we so quick to accept Facebook and Google’s pathetic attempts to sway elections by silencing ideas? How is that allowable, under the law?

We need more than just the White House to get involved in this. The entire federal government needs to hold social media giants accountable. Just because they exist in the digital space doesn’t mean they are allowed to deny Americans their God-given freedoms.

Unless we see major moves to end their censorship, we can expect more freedoms to be erode by the left.

Biden has yet to be officially nominated as the Democrats’ candidate, but the jabs are already flying between him and Trump. Joe tries to keep up, as Trump’s campaign run circles around him. In a recent interview, President Trump was asked to say one good thing about the former vice president. This is how he responded.

You really have to wonder how Democrats can continue to support Joe Biden. The questionable things the man has done or said are really starting to pile up. His long history with foreign nations like Ukraine and China made many Americans wonder where his loyalties lie. Then there are the recent Tara Reade allegations (and his history of touching children). And how can we forget his career-ending statement he made about black people last week?

Perhaps to distract from the Titanic that has become his campaign, Biden released as an attacking Donald Trump… for going golfing. That’s right, folks, Joe Biden wants you to be upset that one day out of the week Trump spent a little time in the sunshine to exercise and relax. How dare the president go golfing! It’s… ah, it’s… not that bad, actually, when you think about it.

President Trump was recently asked to say something nice about Joe Biden. Pretty bogus question, if you ask me. But this is how he responded.

“Well, I would have said experience, but he doesn’t really have experience because I don’t think he remembers what he did yesterday,” Trump said. “So how is that experience? He’s been there a long time. He was never known as a smart person.”

When asked for Biden’s weakest point, Trump had plenty to say but claimed to have trouble coming up with one in particular.

“I can’t tell you,” Trump said. “I mean, I’m really serious. He’s got many. I can talk about weak points all day long.” [Source: Fox News]

Pretty brutal, and brilliant, response. But answer me this, what kind of question is that? Gee, I wonder if she’d ask Joe Biden the same question? And I wonder what Biden would say?

President Trump is running against Joe Biden for president. Why would anyone expect him to say something nice about his rival? Joe has been attacking Trump for years, calling him xenophobic and racist (we all know who the real racist is). Why should Trump say anything nice about Biden?

We all know what Biden would say in response to this question. He wouldn’t say a single positive thing about Donald Trump. And the media wouldn’t care. They would expect him to say nothing but negative things about the man he wants to replace in the White House.

So, why would they ask Trump?

If Trump did say anything nice about Joe, you know that would have been headlines all over the news. Biden’s campaign would be airing that clip over and over again in his ads. Why would Trump give him that advantage?

The truth of the matter is, I can’t think of anything good to say about Biden, either. He certainly doesn’t have a good rap sheet as a senator. Many worry about his history of inappropriately touching women and children. He hasn’t adequately dodged the Tara Reade allegations. We all know he sold out the country to Ukraine and China—so his son would get rich.

And then there’s his declining mental state. Joe’s always been known for his gaffes and mistakes. But now, it appears he’s losing his mind. Some have suggested he might have dementia. Even if that isn’t true, it’s troubling people have to wonder that, because of his poor performances recently.

Trump hit the nail on the head when he said when Biden might not remember what he did yesterday. The man can’t even finish a simple interview without offending an entire community. Imagine what he’d do as president.

After bombshell revelations came out over the Flynn case, several Senate committees have launched investigations into the Obama administration. Pelosi and House Democrats immediately complained, accusing the Senate of wasting time. McConnell was ready, boys. And he blasted her with the facts.

The Obama administration-led investigation into Russia collusions is a long and tangled web. But it boils down to this: Obama’s FBI and DOJ used their power during and after the 2016 Election to interfere with our democracy. They went after members of Trump’s campaign and incoming administration, hoping to build a case against the president himself.

None of it was based on an actual crime or evidence of a crime. It appears they did it, simply because they did not want Trump becoming president. With new evidence released that casts a dark shadow over the FBI’s case against Flynn, Republicans in the Senate took steps to launch their own investigations.

Senators are looking into how Obama’s FBI conducted itself, going as far back as January 2016.

Pelosi and Democrats are understandably terrified. They don’t want Americans knowing anything that might further tarnish their corrupt, broken party’s reputation. Pelosi attacked Republicans, saying these investigations are a waste of time. Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell thought that was cute—and destroyed her.

McConnell dismissed Pelosi’s comments given the length of time the House spent on impeachment under her leadership.

“I’d say to the speaker, after the impeachment, you — you’re not in a position to be lecturing us about what the appropriate use of Senate time is,” he said. “The House of Representatives is arguing before the Supreme Court that they’re still looking at yet another impeachment. They’re arguing that before the Supreme Court this week. Look, this is the legitimate oversight responsibility of the Senate.” [Source: Breitbart]

Ice cream-eating, drunken Pelosi doesn’t have a leg to stand on when she accuses the Senate of “wasting time.” House Democrats spent months on a bogus impeachment inquiry. From around September 2019, all the way to February of this year, we had to deal with their idiotic scheme. Instead of working to help America—perhaps investigate that odd virus emerging at the time in China—House Democrats pushed their Ukrainian narrative.

All for it to fail, when the Senate acquitted President Trump.

McConnell made it clear that there “was a lot of apparent misbehavior going on in the opening of those investigations into General Flynn and others.” Two committees, led by Ron Johnson and Lindsey Graham respectively, are acquiring documents and testimony to get to the bottom of it.

If there’s nothing there, then Pelosi and the Dems have nothing to worry about. But… there’s probably something there. Obama’s DOJ used Clinton’s bogus dossier to lie to the FISA court to get a warrant on Carter Page. They wiretapped Michael Flynn and set him up so he’d get fired. That’s only for starters. More documents have been released that reveal many top Obama officials were behind the scheme. Obama himself might have been calling the shots.

What these Senate committees might undercover could shake Washington to its core. It might erode whatever’s left of Obama’s legacy and the reputation of the Democrats. Even presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden might get pulled into all this.

Of course, the Democrats want to fight it. But after all they’ve done—to waste our time and money—all because they dislike Trump? They really can’t say anything.

Let’s hope the Senate finds the smoking gun that dooms this party for generations to come.

Petty governors across the country are needlessly hurting their people by extending lockdowns. Despite the data proving lockdowns are deadly, these liberal governors are dooming their states and economies. Americans are saying no more. A group of patriots are defying Gov. Whitmer’s bogus order with “Operation Haircut.”

It was mildly reasonable for states to issues “stay at home” orders back in March, when worries about COVID-19 were at a fevered pitch. But today? We’ve seen cases drop like a sack of potatoes. The economic problems created by these orders are far, far worse than the virus itself. Many have demanded a reopening, with measures in place to protect the elderly.

Many states are opening up, but some insist on staying locked down. Honestly, these Democrat governors have little excuse at this point. They are doing it out of spite against their own residents (that’s always a winning strategy!).

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer—whose name has been floated as Joe Biden’s VP pick—imposed unreasonable lockdowns from the very start. When Americans began to demand freedom, she only made them worse. It’s painfully obvious this woman is unqualified to lead an ice cream stand, let alone a government. She is behaving like a bitter, angry ex-wife, punishing her people because they dared to ask for their lives back.

Lawsuits are aplenty in the state of Michigan. And more will come. But Americans are no longer waiting for their leaders to grant them their rights back. Protests have become common in the state and the latest one stabs right at Gretchen herself.

Anti-lockdown protesters gathered in Lansing on the lawn of the Michigan state capitol Wednesday to get a haircut.

With barbershops and salons closed indefinitely due to the state’s coronavirus lockdown, barbers are scheduled to cut hair on the capitol lawn for three hours Wednesday afternoon. The protest, called “operation haircut,” was organized by the Michigan Conservative Coalition, and is the latest example of Michiganders clashing with Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, who has enacted some of the strictest coronavirus restrictions in the nation. [Source: Daily Caller]

We’re are well past the time when lockdowns seemed even remotely needed. Data suggests at best, they did nothing to “slow the spread.” At worst, they only sped up transmission, as it locked up sick people with healthy ones—and prevented people from enjoying fresh air and sunlight (which kills the disease).

Countless doctors have warned about the massive fallout from prolonged lockdowns: a health crisis that would be many magnitudes higher than COVID-19. The good news is most states are opening up (some faster than others). But states like Michigan, Oregon, and Illinois are being run by dictators. Even the courts are warring with their pathetic excuses for governors.

American patriots had to protest, just to get a haircut. Just think about how absurd that is. A basic freedom, to go out and patron a business, is being denied by our governors. Show me in our laws where that is allowed? And show me one decent police officer who would arrest an American for simply want to earn a living?

Gov. Whitmer is treating hard-working, law-abiding Michiganders like hardened criminals. She, like so many other Democrats, is letting out crooks but hurting barbers. Can anyone in their right mind justify that?

This isn’t about fighting the disease. If you track the decisions Democrats have made from the start, you see they are just trying to use the pandemic to aggressively push their agenda. An agenda they’ve wanted to push for years.

House Democrats want trillions to fund radical programs. Local Democrats tried to shut down churches and gun stores, while keeping abortion clinics open. They threatened to cut off power and water to anyone that opened their businesses. They tried to restrict travel, force people into their homes, while releasing dangerous criminals.

All these actions are part of the left’s agenda to plunge the nation into chaos—while turning it into a socialist dictatorship. None of it has to do with battling a disease.

Months ago, I said there would be uprising and resistance. If governors like Whitmer continue to act like lunatics, this is very much just the beginning.

Nancy Pelosi’s grip on reality continues to weaken. During an interview, she attacked the president’s use of preventative medicine—calling the Commander in Chief “morbidly obese.” The odd and inaccurate insult outraged Americans. Soon after, Trump fired back with both barrels.

Has there ever been a Democrat more petty and childish than Nancy Pelosi? The aging liberal has time and again revealed her true colors. Not of a champion of the left—fighting to help the less fortune. But as a weak-minded, selfish elitist who cares only about her “legacy.”

Several times the president invited Nance and other Democrats to the White House for important negotiations. On more than one occasion, Pelosi stormed out, only to appear before the cameras to complain. The woman appears totally incapable of actually doing her job. She wasted months and millions of tax dollars on a bogus impeachment. She tore up Trump’s SOTU address. And she ignored the virus outbreak until it was too late.

During a recent interview on CNN, she was asked about Trump’s usage of hydroxychloroquine. Instead of commending the president for proactively guarding his health, she called him “morbidly obese.” Wow. That’s pretty low, even for a partisan hack.

Nancy’s got nothing left. She has no political clout. She can’t motivate anyone to get anything done. She has no influence with the most important man in the country. So, she resorts to ugly, stupid insults.

This is how Trump responded.

Trump, when asked about Pelosi’s derogatory comment, said, “I don’t respond to her, I think she’s a waste of time.”

Later, when talking about the political games that Democrats have played in recent years, Trump said, “These people are sick. Pelosi is a sick woman, she’s got a lot of problems, a lot of mental problems. We’re dealing with people that have to get their act together for the good of the country.” [Source: Daily Wire]

Now, that’s something. Trump both took the high road and destroyed Pelosi at the same time.

Given his reputation for throwing his own jabs, I’m sure some people expected Trump to hammer crater-faced Pelosi. There are more than a few things Trump can say about this ancient hag. Yet instead, he drops an entirely different bomb on her: he says she’s a “waste of time.”

Later on, he discussed House Democrats, saying they and Pelosi are “sick.” It’s not the first time Trump has called out Pelosi, suggesting she’s “crazy” or has mental problems. It’s a pretty ominous criticism for the president to make.

Trump is an expert at picking out a detail about his rivals and hammering it home. He called Joe Biden “Sleepy Joe,” long before anyone was talking about the former VP’s mental decline. Now, we have plenty of interviews, clips, and appearances of Joe, showcasing his “sleepy” brain.

What should we conclude about Trump’s comments about Pelosi? Is she a “sick woman” with “mental problems”?

Well, she did tell the country she thought Trump was morbidly obese. Even CNN had to fact check that, proving that he was, in fact, not. Pelosi showed off her $24,000 fridge packed with gourmet ice cream, during a crisis where many Americans lost their jobs. She tore up the president’s speech immediately after he gave it—a speech in which he honored American heroes and celebrated American excellence.

Pelosi kept the House shut down during the pandemic, only to unveil the worst piece of legislation we’ve seen in years. She wants to use the virus crisis as an excuse to bail out wasteful states, give cash (and voting power) to illegal aliens, and give her rich liberal buddies tax breaks.

So… yeah, I’m thinking the woman’s pretty sick. Time and again she proves it.

At least Trump didn’t lay into her Botoxed face. That would have really torched her.

The liberal elite freaked out when President Trump cut off funding to the World Health Organization. Trump criticized the U.N. body for failing to properly address COVID-19 at the start of the outbreak. This week, the president sent a brutal letter to the organization, promising to keep funding frozen unless they make some serious changes.

The United States sends hundreds of millions of dollars to WHO on a yearly basis. Like so many other international bodies, we pay the lion’s share of their budget. China, on the other hand, gives WHO less than forty million dollars a year. But which country was WHO bowing to during the early days of the outbreak? You guessed it: the corrupt communist one.

As late as January, after the virus had already spread around the world, WHO repeated the lies of China that it could not spread person-to-person. By then, China had already been studying the disease. They watched it spread from Wuhan to other regions. Since November, they sat back and did nothing as more and more people got sick. Then, they suppressed information from reaching the world, even destroying samples of the virus.

WHO basically helped China keep the virus a secret, then spread false information about it. Only in February, when it was much too late, did WHO bother to say this was a global health emergency. So, why should the United States reward such a corrupt and incompetent organization?

Things don’t seem to have gotten any better at WHO. And Trump promised to make the funding freeze permanent, unless they shape up and fly right.

President Trump released a blistering letter late Monday to the head of the World Health Organization, stating that his administration conducted an investigation that confirmed the health body’s multiple failures in the early stages of the coronavirus outbreak, and warned that his current funding freeze will become permanent if the organization does not make “substantive” improvements within 30 days…

The letter offers a bullet-point list of shortcomings at the agency that Trump claimed could have been prevented under the right leadership. [Source: Fox News]

Trump battered the crooked organization, laying out all the reasons they are largely responsible for the spread of COVID-19.

  • WHO ignored credible reports of the virus in Wuhan in early December 2019
  • WHO Beijing office knew about the threat by December 30, 2019
  • WHO deliberately ignored warnings by Taiwanese authorities
  • WHO made claims about the virus that “were either grossly inaccurate or misleading”
  • WHO praised China’s travel restrictions but were “inexplicably” negative against Trump’s

The list goes on. It’s hard for any honest person to criticize Trump’s decision, in light of the overwhelming evidence. It’s clear this international body devoted to battling disease simply bowed to China’s whims. They were complicit in covering up news of the outbreak early on, trying to aid China’s efforts to protect its reputation (i.e.: save face). Yet because of their slow actions, the virus spread around the world, costing us thousands of lives and so much more.

President Trump called on WHO to show “independence from China.” He demanded the group make reforms to prove they are actually in the business of protecting the world’s health, not doing the wishes of a communist regime. The president stated that if WHO does not commit to “major substantive improvements” in 30 days, they won’t get any more funding from the U.S.

That probably means a new leader. The current president appears to be in the pocket of China’s President Xi. He has consistently refused to admit his organization’s wrongs. Honestly, the best way to reform a group (or a country) is to replace the guy in charge. But will WHO vote out Tedros for someone much more competent?

I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

The United States was forced to shut down its economy—resulting in 30 million unemployed, because of fears of what COVID-19 would do. The extreme measures states took to “slow the spread” has done untold damage to our economy, way of life, and health. Only now, after months of misery, is the “data” that pushed for these lockdowns finally exposed as complete garbage.

Way back in March (doesn’t that seem like a long time ago?), we were told that COVID-19 was a deadly plague. After months of the media claiming it wasn’t a big deal, suddenly reports came out that this disease could cost millions of American lives. In fact, one heavily-circulated model predicted 2.2 million Americans would die—unless drastic actions were taken.

You might not know that the “model” was created by the Imperial College of London. It wasn’t based on actual data from countries that had previous battled and studied the disease. In fact, it wasn’t even peer reviewed or published, when it hit the airwaves. Yet this shoddy piece of computer modeling motivated entire governments to flush their countries down the toilet. Eventually, the model had to be revised again and again. We quickly learned that the people behind it were massively wrong.

On top of that, the man who led the team had to resign because he broke his own lockdown demands to go hook up with a married woman. He was so worried about the disease, that he had no problem committing adultery.

Now, the consensus is official in on this bogus model.

One computer data modeling expert said the Imperial model coding, done by professor Neil Ferguson, is a “buggy mess that looks more like a bowl of angel hair pasta than a finely tuned piece of programming” …

“We would fire anyone for developing code like this and any business that relied on it to produce software for sale would likely go bust” …

Scientists from the University of Edinburgh say that the findings in Ferguson’s model were impossible to reproduce using the same data. The team got different results when they used different machines, and even different results from the same machines. [Source: Daily Wire]

Funny how when this model was actually peer reviewed, other scientists discovered it was utter crap. They couldn’t reproduce the same data. In fact, they said they got different results every time. The code itself was declared a mess and “totally unreliable.”

Yet this model was used by Britain and our own White House task force in deciding to shut down our countries.

Back in March, people were panicking. Everyone was watching Italy and fearing their country would be next. This model came out, predicting wild outcomes that any rational person should have questioned. This model wasn’t made by doctors studying infection trends around the world, but a group of computer programs who apparently knew nothing about disease.

But because our government was afraid of what might happen, they pushed un-Constitutional lockdowns that will take us years to recover from.

The real questions we should be asking now are: who is going to pay for this—and why aren’t we reopening? Most states are gradually reopening at a pathetic pace. Why is that necessary, when the “data” that forced us inside was utterly wrong (and every state is showing dropping numbers)? Why are we still pretending that the sky is falling, when the worst predictions were garbage?

And who is going to face repercussions for this disastrous serious of decisions? We can’t just let this go once we get our movie theaters back. We must hold our leaders accountable for violating our rights. Neil Ferguson and his Imperial College team can’t worm out of their responsibility for this debacle.

Our mayors, judges, and governors who shut down perfectly fine economies must face the consequences as well. They let fear and peer pressure lead them to do the unthinkable. Leaders who single-handedly destroyed our communities (and continue to do so) must not be allowed to lead anymore.

Remember that, the next time you go to the polls.
