Follow The Science,’ Or Follow The Fear?

The GOP’s Trump Solution. Conrad Black — “At some point, the former Republican establishment will have to familiarize itself with the consequences of being defeated by Donald Trump within its own party.”

For Years, The New York Times Reported Absentee Voting Boosts Fraud — Until Donald Trump Agreed. Eric Felten — “What accounts for the New York Times’ change from a dark presentation of absentee voting to a decidedly rosy one? The 2020 election, it appears.” Felten falls into the ‘can’t prove’ vote fraud meme to bash DJT which is being shown false but otherwise, the flip flop is an example that should be a tell for many who aren’t paying that much attention to what is going on.

These Lawsuits Reveal The Left’s Goal To Banish Religion Altogether. Yaakov Menken — “Leftists use lawsuits, not to address actual discrimination, but to demonize those with different beliefs and to characterize the Bible itself as hateful.”

Follow The Science? How The Media’s Hypocrisy Undermines Critical Thinking In The Age Of COVID. Cameron English — “Mainstream news outlets have gone after COVID-19 conspiracy theorists with a passion. But when it comes to equally important science topics, they have no problem ignoring evidence and promoting conspiratorial nonsense. This blatant hypocrisy causes confusion and fuels the public’s skepticism of science more broadly.”

“Anti-science activists generally aren’t single-issue crusaders. Many of the same “health freedom” advocates who deny the benefits of pesticides and vaccines also promote sham medical treatments, and they often work together.

J&J’s Vaccine Halt: ‘Follow The Science,’ Or Follow The Fear? I & I Editorial Board — “No one likes secondary effects of vaccines. It’s a big reason why nearly a third of all people refuse to take any vaccine. But in the case of the J&J vaccine, one possible secondary effect can be quite scary: A small number of people develop a rare form of blood clots. … So how many? Six. That’s out of more than 6.8 million people who have taken the J&J shot,”

“For the record, we don’t tell people what to do. If you don’t want a vaccine, that’s up to you. What we really don’t want, however, is the hypocrisy of those in our “woke” health bureaucracies who relentlessly instruct us to “follow the science,” but then don’t follow it themselves. Instead they follow the politics — or even worse, the fear.

The Totalitarian Undertow of Social Distancing. Jon Rodeback — “The closest parallel in recent history to prolonged social distancing may be the atomization of societies under totalitarian regimes. Totalitarian regimes usually take power during periods of massive social and political upheaval, and they must perpetuate the upheaval through reigns of terror in order to retain power.”

Dan Klein’s Open Letter to Tyler Cowen. Don Boudreaux — “Like Don, I am distressed by your recent blog post disparaging the Great Barrington Declaration.”

Shameless

CBS’s Refusal To Even Explain Itself Is The New, Shameless Reality For Republicans And Conservatives. Christopher Bedford — “What the story really says is that both CBS and ’60 Minutes’ are willing to publish sloppy hit pieces on those who defy their narratives and no longer think it necessary to even remotely justify this propaganda.”

Bill would require that eggs sold in Nevada come from cage-free hens by mid-2024. Michelle Rindels — this is the concern in the Nevada legislature as voting integrity is set aside.

Amid Renewed Rioting in Minneapolis, a Lesson on the Second Amendment. Bryan Preston — “Some business owners were prepared and are defending their property. Some weren’t and aren’t.”

PHOTO: Armed Civilians Stand Guard Outside Brooklyn Center Store. Awr Hawkins — “Similar defenses of businesses were seen during the riots that erupted in response to the death of George Floyd.”

Can the Great ‘Awokening’ Succeed? Victor Davis Hanson — “Wokeism is creating a future group of politically incorrect Trotskyites on a proverbial rendezvous with a Mexican ice pick, given that by birth they will never be woke enough for the new Stalinism.”

Honesty crisis – does anyone care?

Our Honesty Crisis: How We Talk about Race. Matt Keener — “Of all the things that ail us — our honesty crisis might be the one that does us in.” … “We lie about our ills. We gloss over or ignore statistics that do not support the official narrative of the times and we censor or ban people that tell us things we do not want to hear.” … “Nowhere is this transparency crisis more evident in the last year than in the area of race.”

Officer Chauvin’s Knee Was NOT on George Floyd’s ‘Neck’ and 8 Other Things You Didn’t Know About This Case. Victoria Taft — “Many things have been revealed during the nearly two-week-long trial of Chauvin. We’re betting you didn’t know most of them. Here are just nine examples.”

Another, Clearer Take on the Chauvin Trial. Clarice Feldman — “I leave it to you to decide why, from the Trayvon Martin case to the George Floyd case, the media has so consistently misrepresented the facts.”

Biden’s Chamber of Confected Hatreds. Conrad Black — “It was impossible to foretell that the reaction of the post-Reagan bipartisan and political class to its being rejected would be not only to confect defamatory hatred against Trump but of America.” … “Destructive, mindless wokeness and charges and confessions of “white privilege” are everywhere”

Optimism Inc.: Serendipity on the Farm. Victor Davis Hanson — “Nothing has changed in a world where everything has changed.” … “My worry about the next generation? Many. But one is that we are losing the versatile, autonomous, jack-of-all-trades young man, who has the confidence and skill to go it alone under any possible contingency and welcomes rather than fears adversities. God, I wish we had more such folk. The nation was built by them, and without them we do not have a prayer. A Happy Easter to them all!”

It’s our behavior

The Wall Between Civilization And Our Innate Savagery Is Weakening. Nathanael Blake — “Despite being surrounded by material abundance and wondrous gadgetry, human depravity still finds a way. … Civilization is difficult.” … “To mourn the demise of the Aztecs’s bloodthirsty gods is to take sides against the indigenous people sacrificed to those gods.

COVID-19 Surges Are Due More To Virus Than Our Behavior. Chuck Dinerstein — ““The GENI index continued to increase even when social interventions were instituted—providing evidence that multiple components of transmission are at play” – scrambling like made to try to rationalize desires despite the evidence?

‘The Science’ Isn’t Settled, Only the Spin. Robert Murray — “What is it about “climate change” that makes it so different to everything else? It divides families, friendships and political parties, it has brought media and campus self-censorship and classroom propaganda. Minds close over, spooked. To question any aspect is the eighth deadly sin. “Deniers” are sub-human.”

The rise of the absurd: woke mob rule, Covidocractic Tyranny

Georgia’s Corporate Exodus Signals The Rise Of The Woke Cartel. Dennis Weisman — “Woke policy positions by corporations and sports leagues that aren’t sustainable when acting alone are sustainable when they operate as cartels.”

“When all or virtually all businesses in a market adopt the same policy position, consumers are unable to voice their dissatisfaction by voting with their feet and patronizing a competitor that offers a similar product or service. Unfortunately, in this setting, boycotts are of limited effectiveness because customers have nowhere else to turn.

Wealthy and Woke. Victor Davis Hanson — “Apparently to rant about “privilege” means the less you need to worry about your own.” … “The rules of cynical CEO censure are transparent.”

Rise of the Absurd. The Z Man — “The French Enlightenment philosopher known to us as Voltaire once said, “Whoever can make you accept absurdity can make you commit injustice.” … “Political correctness is a way to maintain control. By forcing people to accept and repeat the most ridiculous things, the people in charge break the will of the people. By accepting the lie, they can no longer live in the truth. “A society of emasculated liars is easy to control.” … “Freed from those moral constraints, reason quickly turns into superstition.”

The Face Of Evil. John Hinderaker — “Michel Foucault is the intellectual godfather of the modern Left.” … “the icons of the Left–Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, Michel Foucault and many more–were hideously deformed and evil. I think a flawed man or woman–which is to say, a normal person–can produce sound political and social philosophy. But I think it is impossible for a moral leper like Michel Foucault to produce anything good or useful. Which helps to explain, perhaps, why today’s Left is irredeemably corrupt.”

Conrad Black on America today. neo — “Maybe I know an atypical sample of people, but I’m acquainted with a lot of people who have always seemed to me to be smart, kind, and well-meaning, and who have no obvious dysfunction in personality or lives, and yet who now fully subscribe to the notion that America is evil and must atone for its sins. They believe that it’s the people who say otherwise who are lying and/or ignorant.”

Justice And The Question Of Process Versus Outcome. J.T. Young — “Members of America’s left see justice not as a process but an outcome. … The problem for the left in attaining its vision of justice in Chauvin’s trial is that the charges, even if proved, will not deliver a sentence that will meet its definition of justice.”

Ann Coulter explains the status of the Derek Chauvin trial. Andrea Widburg — “Currently, the prosecution is still putting on its case, but it may want to stop doing so before the court is forced to dismiss the case altogether.” cited: Legal Insurrection, Ann Coulter, also see Taki’s Derek Chauvin, Human Sacrifice by Ann Coulter.

Did the 9th Circuit Just Erase “to Bear” Arms from the Second Amendment? Cody Wisniewski — “Young v. Hawaii: The case presented the Circuit with a not-so-straightforward question: Since Hawaii heavily regulates the concealed carriage of firearms, which licensing scheme has been upheld by the Ninth Circuit, can Hawaii even more heavily regulate the open carriage of firearms?” … “One can be forgiven for not immediately grasping the full impact of the Ninth Circuit’s 215-page opinion (with dissents), which reads more like a prequel to George Orwell’s 1984 than a judicial decision.”

Former Gaetz aide: Sure looks like the media’s cooking a narrative on Gaetz. Ed Morrissey — “this eye-popping Twitter thread from Washington Post reporter Matt Zapotosky should have us demanding greater scrutiny to these claims, until extraordinary evidence for extraordinary claims finally emerges.”

Media, Politicians Still Spreading the ‘Big Lie’ About Officer Sicknick. Julie Kelly — “Democratic leaders and the American news media aren’t just dishonest and shameless—they’re fully depraved.”

Cause of Death Comes in for Folks Who Died at Capitol Riot. Nick Arama — 1 shot by police, 2 from cardiovascular natural causes, 1 from acute amphetimine intoxication. “What was still pending was a determination on the cause of death of Officer Brian Sicknick, who didn’t die during the riot, but collapsed and died hours later.”

Why The Iconoclastic Left Are On The Wrong Side Of History. Steven Watts — “Approaching history with condescending arrogance, as the woke movement does, merely highlights the smallness of the examiners.” … “Judicious students of the American experience steer clear of these mistakes and approach it cautiously, seeking wisdom, not weaponization.”

Covidocractic Tyranny. Don Boudreaux — “It’s come to this, my fellow Americans. A prominent “expert” – one who is a personality on a major international television network, a columnist at one of the country’s most prominent newspapers, and a professor (if apparently only now visiting) at a major U.S. university – recommends, with no evident hesitation or embarrassment or shame, that each of us Americans be compelled to purchase our freedom by getting a Covid vaccine. Freedom, in this woman’s view, is the “carrot” that will lure us little rabbits to submit obediently to vaccination.”

Germany’s wind and solar push driving up prices, harming reliability. Isaac Orr — “Minnesota politicians, along with wind and solar special interest groups, often applaud Germany’s decision to close its nuclear and coal plants in order to build more wind and solar, but an audit by the German government seen by Reuters indicates the country’s energy policy is causing electricity prices to skyrocket, and it is putting reliability at risk.”

Propaganda problem should be a major concern

Legacy Media Corruption Is At The Heart Of Our National Conflict. Emily Jashinsky — “The Georgia example is instructive in illustrating exactly how much of our conflict is downstream of the broken media.” … “The media’s false reporting about new election legislation in Georgia whipped up a controversy that left millions of people grossly misinformed, frightened voters, mired major corporations in high-stakes public relations frenzies, distracted the political discourse, and furthered the country’s divisions.”

“Over and over again, the legacy media falsely reports major details of major stories. Take Sunday’s bizarre “60 Minutes” report on Gov. Ron DeSantis, which Mollie Hemingway eviscerated on Monday. On that same network last weekend as well, months after the media worked in concert with Big Tech to suppress a New York Post report, Hunter Biden admitted the infamous laptop could be his.

the media is no longer a secondary problem because of its partisan bias. Its ideological bias has festered into incompetence that is creating and worsening just about every single one of our problems as a country, from basic efficiency to institutional trust to race relations. Defeating the legacy media’s stranglehold on information delivery must be a top priority for the left, right, and center.

All-Star Game Move Shows The Left’s Power To Push Lies. Jonathan S. Tobin — “while the league’s decision to move the game out of Atlanta was certainly influenced by the president’s histrionics, the die was cast long before he launched his puzzling rhetorical improvisations about the law making “Jim Crow look like Jim Eagle.”

“When race-baiting becomes the issue, the facts about voting or any other issue never matter when industries have much to lose and little to gain from standing up to woke, leftist bullies.

Violating Core American Principles. Gary M. Galles — “the premise underlying such disproportionate burdens – that it is an appropriate federal government role to take from some to give to others of its choosing – is inconsistent with America’s founding principles. And that is also the case for the government overstepping, disparate treatment and unequal justice those funds have financed.”

Election Fraud Prosecution At An “All-Time High”: Texas Attorney General’s Office. [zerohedge] Jack Phillips [Epoch Times] — “An official in Texas’ Attorney General’s office testified during a state House hearing that the number of election fraud cases in Texas is at an “all-time high.”

Propaganda is a fog in the path to truth about reality – Powerful forces are allied against the truth

ABC News’ Terrible, Scary, And Inaccurate Vaccine Headline. Josh Bloom — “It is shoddy reporting like this that is guaranteed to confuse and frighten people who are hesitant to take the shot, either because it’s a new technology or worried that the development was rushed, so the shot is unsafe.”

’60 Minutes’ Ignores Democrat Governors’ Scandals, Invents One About DeSantis. Mollie Hemingway — “As with the pushing of anti-Bush forgeries, CBS News continues to push partisan propaganda at the expense of the truth.”

“As with the pushing of anti-Bush forgeries, CBS News continues to push partisan propaganda at the expense of the truth. It is unclear whether its propaganda will keep its viewers from knowing the truth about Florida’s handling of COVID, much less the truth of what has happened in hard lockdown states such as New York and California.

Can We Finally Stop Pretending that George Floyd’s Death Had Anything to Do with Racism? William Sullivan. “The lie that George Floyd was murdered by racist police officers in Minneapolis has made its way around the world several times over, leaving countless violent riots and more than $2 billion in property damages in its wake, but it seems that the truth is finally putting on its shoes.”

“perhaps saddest of all, we can expect that radical leftist politicians, celebrities, the media, and woke corporations will continue to be complicit in the promotion of that deadly and destructive lie, and will continue to placate the rioters committing these horrible atrocities by defending their actions as justifiable outrage.

Powerful forces are allied against the truth, and are actively seeking to silence anyone espousing it.

Biden White House Wildly Misleads Public On COVID Vaccinations. I & I Editorial Board — “The Biden administration is playing up its role in combating the COVID-19 pandemic, big time.”

Donald J. Trump: Joe Biden’s Best Friend. Victor Davis Hanson — “The myth of Biden the healer, and Trump the cruel divider, got Biden elected. But the fantasy that Biden had the answers to problems that Trump created is a far greater—and more dangerous—delusion.”

Poll Finds Almost Half Of Americans Want Vaccine Passports. Steve Watson at Summit News [via ZeroHedge]. A Rasmussen poll has revealed that almost half of Americans support the introduction of vaccine passports in order to get “back to normal.” … “The passport system is also being pushed by the mainstream media, with the likes of the L.A. Times declaring that vaccine passports are a “good idea” because they will help the Biden administration “break the resistance down.” … DocShellshock at Twitter: “So 44% of America has bought into tyrannical fascism. Got it.”

The totalitarians’ Covid con unintentionally explained by CNN public health ‘expert’. Thomas Lifson — “Too much freedom is a bad thing because it limits the ability of the state to coerce its subjects into behavior they otherwise would resist. That’s the basic message explained to Chris Cuomo by a professor of public health policy that CNN favors with its airtime.”

nuclear level of hypocrisy – Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence

For the academic, maybe this will help understand Jesus … 

Jesus Christ PhD. James Franklin — “Careful attention to how Jesus uses scripture and draws from it principles that imply radical conclusions gives insight into the nature of his intensive earlier study.” … “Our modern assumption, in law and ethics, that motive and intention are morally central and that actions flow from them, is post-Christian.”

Capitalism, Poverty and Christian Charity. Peter Smith — “Whether Catholicism or Protestantism was most responsible for spurring economic progress in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and beyond can be debated. What I believe to be true is that across all of its denominational variants, Christianity is bound together in a holy and secular alliance with capitalism. This is not universally appreciated. It should be, as I hope to explain.”

“As societies have become wealthier, and wealthier still, a disconnect has arisen in the minds of many between the vast array of commodities on show and available every day and the processes of making and delivering them. A cargo cult, almost, has taken hold. This is most acutely seen, in my view, among the Greens. However, to varying extents, this mentality is widespread. It is prevalent among charity and church leaders who otherwise display no tendency to believe in magic.

Entropy, poverty and misery are always waiting in the wings unless free markets guide the process of creating and distributing wealth.

Christians who complain about capitalism need to go back to basics. Poverty will always be with us. “For you have the poor with you always” (Matthew 26:11). Charity will always be required. Meanwhile capitalism is peerless at providing the wherewithal to support charity while progressively reducing, though never ending, the need for it. It is a match made in heaven and earth.

“Brutal” Abuse Of Power: Watch As UK Police Break Up “Unlawful Gathering” Easter Service In London. Tyler Durden — “Shocking footage has emerged showing the absurd lengths authorities are willing to go to enforce ‘Covid rules’ even after vaccines have been made more widely available, with tens of millions having received the jab” … “The police appeared to literally burst in mid-service and acknowledged it was among the most important Christian holy days of the year before ordering people to disperse.”

The Trump-Hate Coalition Is Crumbling. Conrad Black — “The wheels are coming off the rickety anti-Trump coalition in all four directions.” … “Every informed person in the world knows that the events of January 6 were the result of a loose sequence of facts that were only allowed to aggregate into the assault on the Capitol because of the malice or incompetence of Trump’s enemies.”

“The FBI and senior echelons of the intelligence services were politically compromised, a massively illegal and fraudulent investigation of the elected president was conducted, two utterly spurious impeachment attempts were thrown at him and the coronavirus pandemic was invoked to produce the most seriously tainted presidential election result in the country’s history. The Supreme Court may have made the correct political decision when it declined to adjudicate the case, given how tempestuous the response would have been if it had overturned the result of the election, but it was still an abdication. They presumably acted as they did to assure that there would be no move to pack the court with Democrats, and they may now be in a position to reassert the Constitution as the controversies generated by the new administration percolate up to it.

Republicans Seek Briefing From DOJ on Allegations of ‘Suspicious’ Capitol Tours Before Riot. Rick Moran — “Shortly after the Capitol riot, 34 Democrats signed a letter asking the Department of Justice and the Capitol Police to investigate claims that Republican members of Congress assisted the rioters by giving some of them a tour of the Capitol in the days leading up to the riot.”

“Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence,” said astronomer Carl Sagan. He was referring to claims of aliens visiting earth, but he may as well have had the Democrats smearing Republicans with baseless charges of complicity in an insurrection in mind.

There is no evidence that any Republican congressman was involved in any way in the assault on the Capitol. There’s no evidence that routine tours of the Capitol given by every member of Congress were anything but wide-eyed tourists killing time on their vacation.

What’s More American than Coke and Baseball? Clarice Feldman — “Until very recently, it would have been hard to imagine anything more iconic of American life than Coca-Cola and baseball. Today both remind me of Benito Mussolini’s corporatist – aka, fascist — game of merging of state and corporate power.” … “I’m fed up with this never-ending sham: partisan power grabs to weaken the most important features of American life being cloaked in virtuous anti-racism.”

So MLB is fine with ball games in Cuba and training in China, but Georgia is the human rights problem, Monica Showalter — “Unlike Abrams, they chose, and chose poorly, because what they chose will probably have some consequences for the MLB organization, given its nuclear level of hypocrisy.” … “Their hypocrisy surrounding this maneuver to appease senile Joe Biden and all his leftist flying monkeys circling his sorry corpus is an outrage.”

The attack on Georgia isn’t really about Georgia. neo — “This is just another example of a trend we’re seeing more and more of lately, in which companies that used to stay out of politics are making bold statements that align with the present-day Democrat narrative.” … “Democrats feel that their goal of permanent power (or at least very long-term power) is so close they can taste it. And they are willing to do nearly anything to secure it.”

Atlanta Journal-Constitution Offers Correction After Printing Biden’s Lies About GA Election Law Bill. Karen Townsend — “The newspaper made the mistake of printing Democrat talking points, specifically remarks made by President Biden, instead of the truth. AJC originally falsely reported that voting hours had been cut in the bill and failed to note that early voting days had been added for general elections while shortening the time for early voting in primary run-offs.”

NPR Corrects False Hunter Biden Claim But ... Jonathan Turley — “The article by NPR senior editor and correspondent Ron Elving stated categorically that the laptop story was discredited by news organizations. It was later compelled to correct that false statement but still has language casting doubt on the story and evades glaring contradictions in Biden’s book and his interview. Moreover, NPR continues to run false claims from prior controversies.”

Election Fraud Hotspots – 10% of the Data are 70% of the Fraud. Jay Valentine — “Beginning in November, like many citizens, we witnessed election fraud possibilities any sentient person would investigate. Having backgrounds in fraud detection, particularly in the property casualty insurance business, Medicaid fraud, and cyber fraud, gave us a curiosity that never dissipated.”

“If Jesse Morgan did drive a tractor trailer truck with 100,000 ballots from New York to Pennsylvania, how can we find out? Chris Wray and our hardy pals at the FBI may not want to open that truck’s back door, but we do – with database analysis.

They can hide the truck. They can claim it never happened. They cannot hide the record of the ballot.

We are thrilled people are trying to alter data after the fact. They are leaving tracks like a dinosaur walking through a field of peanut butter for database tracking.

Some Covid Links. Don Boudreaux — “We will not mince words. America is indeed suffering from a dangerous plague—a plague of misanthropic fearmongering from the likes of Dr. Fauci, the Scarf Lady and the Biden’s new CDC director, among countless others of the self-designated Virus Patrol.”

Misrepresents? Really?

“C’mon Man!”: Biden Again Misrepresents Georgia Election Law While Supporting State Boycott. Johnathan Turley — “The level of misrepresentation of these provisions in the media has been chilling. The narrative has overwhelmed the news on the factual basis of these claims.”

Media Plays With Fire, Profiles Chauvin Jurors. Deanna Fisher — “the cost might be paid in lives ruined.”

How far can this go?

New Yorker Attempt To Dunk On Conservatives Further Shows Why H.R. 1 Is A Threat. Gabe Kaminsky — “Jane Mayer of The New Yorker strengthens the argument for why H.R. 1 is an awful piece of legislation.” … “Mayer misunderstands the Republican base’s argument completely and produces a straw man.”

“Mayer’s backing of President Joe Biden’s press conference claim the GOP opposing the bill is “sick” and “un-American” is only fitting, since both Biden and The New Yorker writer oversimplify the measure and do not mostly address GOP concerns.

While Mayer claims H.R. 1 is “overwhelmingly popular across the political spectrum,” and chides McKenzie for failing to acknowledge this erroneous platitude, many of its major provisions have been measured in polls as highly unpopular. But the author deceivingly neglects this.

Nancy Pelosi, The Real Insurrectionist. I & I Editorial Board — “Democratic Speaker Nancy Pelosi called U.S. Army Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Her objective was to strip Donald Trump of his constitutional executive authority. She followed up the call with a letter to her power-hungry Democratic colleagues:” … “It’s impossible to separate Pelosi’s actions from the Democrats’ efforts to rule rather than govern.”

How Stupid are American Voters — Very!? Alicia Colon — “Perhaps stupid is not the right word. Gullible is not right either. It’s really hard to pinpoint the main reason behind the disastrous state of our country but the cold hard fact is that many Americans have fallen for two of the biggest hoaxes perpetrated by the left , the media and corrupt politicians.” … “What has happened to this country is positively evil. If you can’t recognize that we have been grossly manipulated by petty dictatorial tyrants basking in power modes, then perhaps stupid is the right word.”

The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America. Victor Davis Hanson — money, law, racialism, citizenship, dependency, hypocrisy, avoidance, McCarthyism, ignorance, wokeness … “Americans privately fear these rules while publicly appearing to accept them. They still could be transitory and invite a reaction. Or they are already near-permanent and institutionalized.”
