Constitution thrown out the window …

The first amendment is getting the squeeze.

Judge Grants Injunction Barring Grace Community Church From Constitutional Right To Worship. Jordan Davidson – “The bullying and harassment continues. This is NOT about health. LA County just wants to shut down church.”

“Judge Mitchell L. Beckloff of the Los Angeles Superior Court issued a preliminary injunction Thursday that prohibits Pastor John MacArthur and Grace Community Church from “conducting, participating in, or attending any indoor worship services.” The ban also extends to services held outside “unless onerous restrictions are followed.”

Trump to rally supporters at Douglas County airport after earlier event scuttled by Reno airport officials. Megan Messerly – “plans for a similar event in Reno were scuttled earlier this week when airport officials said it would violate the state’s 50-person limit on public gatherings.” The state of Nevada and its most populous cities, Reno and Las Vegas, are engaging in political warfare against selected candidates in a Presidential campaign.

“It’s Like Using A Hammer To Kill A Fly” – Architect Of Sweden’s COVID-19 Anti-Lockdown Strategy Finally Vindicated. Tyler Durden – “Many Americans have also been guilty of criticizing Sweden without first appreciating how radical its program truly was. Throughout the pandemic, youth sports never even stopped. Now, the return of sports is suddenly becoming a major issue in the US.”

Ignorance and Complacency May Cost Us Our Dignity, Liberty and Freedom. Dr. Shmuel Katz – “Too many evil forces are exploiting us to advance their agendas.”

“We are in a period in our lives when the culture of not communicating and not listening to others has become a pathological norm, and “cancel culture” has become an everyday term. Unfortunately, it is being exploited by too many self-serving operatives who exploit this situation to their own advantage and to our detriment.

We are indoctrinated to believe that the information we are receiving from certain outlets is the only valid input that we should consider, while we should actively ignore or disparage any other source of information.

Dealing with objective information is very important and it should be properly addressed in a wise way. This search for truth was taken recently to a different level. I witnessed a bizarre new phenomenon among private people who have finally decided to engage in conversation, but will fact-check their opponents as they speak. This is very significant, because it shows that they are not really listening to each other, but instead are trying to debunk each other’s arguments. To add to this, even the fact checkers themselves sometimes have their own agendas, and therefore will be inaccurate.

Michelle Deserves Pity, but the Rest of Us Deserve More. Mark DeVine – “The equation “racial disparities = systemic racism” has achieved axiom status in the science of social justice.” … “Both as FLOTUS and after settling into an 11-plus-million-dollar Martha’s Vineyard mansion, Michelle found neither final escape nor permanent relief from racism and the pain it inflicts.” … “Michelle is a product of the “infantilization” of black Americans John McWhorter so incisively warns of.” … “Much of her suffering is unnecessary because its source resides far less in her experiences than in the meanings the social justice movement has trained her reflexively to draw from those experiences.”

Peace breaking out all over from Trump and the left is going haywire. Monica Showalter – “Democrats are having a shattered-glass crack-up to the continuous good news coming from President Trump on the global peace front. Their famously discplined lockstep ‘narrative’ has gone haywire.”

“What this peace news shows is not just that Trump has been right at every turn on how to create peace, he’s also still extremely good at exposing the left for what it is – taking them off guard, leaving them naked without a ‘narrative’ to repeat in lockstep, and watching them go bonkers in all directions.

Leftist war on meritocracy becomes overt. Lubos Motl – “For many years, we have seen that the post-modern or neo-Marxist left was increasingly fighting against some values that have been considered important for a long time”

“But it is exactly the difference between the gifted and not so gifted people that was removed or “heavily minimized” and it is exactly this removal that is responsible for the inability of communism (and other non-meritocratic systems) to advance the human society. The funny point which is relevant in all the discussions about capitalism-vs-communism as well as in any meritocracy-vs-antimeritocracy discussion is that in a human society, the less gifted ones ultimately benefit from the contributions by the gifted ones, too. Even the most ordinary workers in Western Europe ended up much wealthier than the median inhabitants of the Soviet bloc by the late 1980s. For this “miracle” to occur, the gifted ones simply do have to be incentivized. The laws of Nature do this incentivization rather naturally – capitalism is a natural state of affairs while socialism or communism are artificial, socially engineered constructs. So what’s enough is “not to prevent Mother Nature” from using Her invisible hand to incentivize the gifted ones. DeBoer’s statement that things will be OK when they are not incentivized is as wrong as you can get. When they’re not incentivized, the society stagnates and then degenerates and at the end, not just the gifted people but all people pay the price.

All people pay the price.
