Shame is in short supply

Coronavirus: COVID Deaths in U.S. by Age, Race. Alex Berezow – “While coronavirus is obviously concerning and a very real threat to some people (namely, the elderly and immunocompromised), these data also show that the risk for the rest of the population is quite low.”

Stunning dishonesty behind the “second wave” fake news. Lubos Motl – “the U.S. fake news media have apparently decided that they have the power to start the second wave of the coronavirus hysteria in the country.”

What good do the masks do, really? Ted Noel, MD – “Let’s put that in plain English. Even if you did everything to protect yourself with surgical masks, even keeping it on when your kid wants to see your face, it might reduce your chance of getting sick, but we can’t prove it.” … “Caregivers in a high-intensity environment should have all the fitted N95s they need. Beyond that, it’s time to recognize that the only person who should be wearing a mask is the Lone Ranger.”

To Mask or Not To Mask… By I.M. Doctoo. – “There are, however, many shades of accuracy in the argument, and the “surgeon” really shows some gaps in their medical knowledge… not to mention their compassion.”

The Left’s Idea of Bringing Us Together. Don Feder – “Our way or the highway.”

“ Despite his reputation, Donald Trump actually tries to negotiate his differences with opponents. The art of the deal was what made him a successful businessman and propelled him into politics.

When Democrats and their media allies use words like “unite the nation” and “bring us together,” they mean: “You agree with us – which is really the only sensible course.”

Today, the nation has never been more deeply divided. Democrats keep pushing their radical, racist, anti-American agenda, despite popular disapproval.

Bringing us together is a trap. It’s meant to mute Republican voices (“Now don’t you go being divisive by disagreeing with us”), while Democrats practice the politics of evisceration.

for the left — the Democratic Party, Black Lives Matters, Antifa and the mainstream media — there is only one reasonable choice. They believe in unity by subjugation. Anything else is tearing us apart.

McConnell: Notice How Chuck Schumer Acts As If Tim Scott Doesn’t Even Exist. Guy Benson – “This is as close as you may get to seeing Mitch McConnell give his race-baiting colleagues a taste of their own rhetorical medicine.”

The Facebook Ad Boycott Is About Silencing Conservatives, Not Stopping ‘Hate’. I & I Editorial Board – “In the press release announcing the boycott, NAACP President Derrick Johnson complains that Facebook won’t take “significant steps to remove political propaganda from its platform.” … “Wait. What’s racist or violent about political propaganda? And who decides what makes certain political speech “propaganda”?” … “So this boycott is nothing more than a politically motivated attempt to silence non-leftist speech. Companies backing it should be ashamed of themselves, not Facebook.”

Tucker Carlson misreads Trump’s pre-election strategy. Andrea Widburg – “I think Tucker’s wrong. Trump is not silent because of fear or exhaustion. Instead, he’s pursuing a deliberate strategy. Whether it works is another thing, but there’s a strong rationale and intelligence behind Trump’s response to both the virus and the riots.”

“Sen. Tom Cotton (R, Ark.) understands that Trump, by sticking to his federalist principles, is making a point. As Cotton’s new video states, “Elect Joe Biden and the anarchy will be coming to a town near you.”

I understand Carlson’s despair, for I sometimes feel it myself. But I also believe that Trump is forcing a real choice on Americans: They can vote for Biden and turn America into CHAZ or they can reelect Trump and, by making that statement, give him the power finally to shut down the left and its Deep State resistance.

The Left Craps Out. J.R. Dunn – “the Left assessed their opponent poorly. Instead of exploding, the President behaved like the leader of a federal republic, demanding that the states and cities fulfill their responsibilities to the citizenry while assuring the public that he was ready to move if necessary.”

“Trump’s response has confused a lot of people. We’ve become so ingrained to an overactive federal government leaping into action every time a tree branch falls that a lack of response seems strange, even though that’s how our system is designed to work. The mayors and governors are supposed to put their fingers in the dyke while the feds make the arrangements for further repairs. This has not been the practice since the New Deal. Even some “conservatives,” who should know better, have criticized Trump’s lack of abrupt action (I’m speaking here of serious conservatives, not the #NeverTrump crowd). They need to remind themselves that the United States is not Imperial Rome.

What Happens When the Madness Ends? Victor Davis Hanson – “Today’s corporate revolutionary enthusiasts had better prepare for the inevitable turn.” … “There are two historic red lines and our revolution is getting close to both.”
