A chilling transgression, It’s a melee.

After Burst Pipes Flooded Texas Homes, Many Are Blessed With Free Repairs: ‘Texas Takes Care Of Texas’. Jordan Davidson – “It’s a lot of work but we’re trying our best,” plumber Will Arausa said. … “Despite her unfortunate circumstances, Cedillo has also experienced the generosity and care of her fellow Texans as she works to return to normal.”

The Government Censors Are Here. I & I Editorial Board – “Congressional Democrats are demanding to know what communications giants such as Comcast and AT&T are going to do about “the spread of dangerous misinformation.” … “The hearing was called to focus on “disinformation and extremism in the media.” In practice it’s a stage for peacock strutting, spin, and projection (a diversionary tactic Democrats are well-practiced in) with the ultimate goal of gaining full control of the flow of information.”

“this is where we are in an America no previous generation would recognize. And the downward spiral is accelerating. Unless our decline is turned around hard and soon, it won’t be long before we’re burning books, because we’re already symbolically burning anyone who dares express a view that dissents from the Democrat-media narrative.

‘A chilling transgression’ of free speech: FCC commissioner slams 2 House Dems asking cable companies if they plan to keep conservative outlets. Douglas Braff – “In his denouncement of the letter, Carr also said that, “Debate on matters of public interest should be robust, uninhibited, and wide open. More speech is better than less.” He continued, saying, “Yet the concerted effort by Democrats to drive political dissent from the public square represents a marked departure from these First Amendment norms.”

Democrats Move To Silence Non-Liberal Speech. John Hinderaker – “the Democrats see what could be a once in a lifetime opportunity, and are pressing forward with their most radical agenda since they seceded in 1861.” … “I have been following politics closely for more than five decades, and the Democratic Party’s war on freedom of speech is the most sinister thing I have witnessed in that time. What is truly chilling is how few Democrats are willing to stand up for freedom.”

Expansion of domestic terrorism laws profoundly threatens democracy. Sara Carter – “It’s sad but true that the rhetoric since Jan. 6, from lawmakers is dangerous to how Americans perceive one-another, as well as civil liberties. It is in my opinion a mission creep to a surveillance society born out of fear and one in which American democracy is threatened.”

We’re all ten steppers now. Mark Wauck – “since 2007 Wolf has been pushing her idea of the threat to American democracy, embodied in her Ten Step program by which democracies are transformed into totalitarian states. She sees these Ten Steps being implemented here in America” … “Wolf’s main point at this juncture is that the Covid casedemic is being used in line with Step Ten of her schema, the final step to full on totalitarianism.”

Tucker Carlson’s plan to end systemic racism and income inequality in America. Andrea Widburg – “It’s time, he said, for America’s elite educational institutions (the Ivy Leagues and other high-ranking colleges and universities) to stop promoting generational affluence. They need to jettison their rich student body and, in the future, admit only disadvantaged students.”

Is the Biden Administration Stumbling Into War? Victor Davis Hanson – “Nothing is more dangerous than stronger powers, even inadvertently, sending signals that are interpreted as weakness by weaker powers.”

 

How Does the West Factor in Africa’s Problems? Michael Curtis – “Though this state of affairs may resemble politics in Washington, D.C., it actually applies to Uganda, where the presidential and legislative election took place on January 14, 2021.” … “After the independence of African countries from colonial rule, democracy did not flourish, and rulers came to power through coups or as warlords or as charismatic personalities.” … “The positive and negative aspects of colonialism in Africa remain controversial. The crucial problem remains. Why did democracy not flourish after independence?”

Senate Hearing On The Capitol Riot Exonerated Trump. David Marcus – “Tuesday’s testimony made perfectly clear that Donald Trump did not incite the Capitol riot.”

“In January, then-President Trump was impeached by the House of Representatives in mere hours — no witnesses, no testimony, no evidence. It was a needless knee-jerk reaction meant mainly to embarrass and punish the outgoing president. Likewise, the trial in the Senate, which took less than a week, offered no substantial evidence tying Trump to the actions of the rioters. By that time, Trump was already out of office, so why was the trial rushed? Why did it lack any real substance? We found out why on Tuesday.

The answer, of course, is that Trump did not in any way, shape, or form incite the riot. The reason the Democrats offered no evidence that he did is that there is no evidence that he did.

The bottom line is that in the impeachment and trial of Trump, facts took a backseat.

Capitol Police Witnesses Struggle to Explain How Rioters Breached the Capitol on January 6. Tyler O’Neil – “The law enforcement officers claimed that they had been prepared to face a potentially violent protest, but they said the rioters caught them off guard.” … “The law-enforcement officials referred to the riot as a “military-style attack,” but the DOJ has not charged any specific rioter with gun possession in the U.S. Capitol.”

“Americans should absolutely abhor and condemn the Capitol riot, but conservatives should beware of the Democrats’ rhetoric on this. Democrats appear to be laying the groundwork for a domestic “War on Terror” based on the idea that conservatives, Republicans, and those who supported Donald Trump pose a domestic terror threat to the country.

I Saw Provocateurs At The Capitol Riot On Jan. 6. J. Michael Waller – “The deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol bore the markings of an organized operation planned well in advance of the Jan. 6 joint session of Congress.” … “The biggest takeaway from the testimony was a miscommunication among Capitol Hill police that left an intelligence report suggesting violence was being planned against the seat of government ignored.”

Everything is Fake in Utopia. Bode Lang – “When Democrats gain power through fraud, everything that follows becomes fake as well.” … “Ever since January 6th, social media became platforms to rant about “insurrection,” “sedition,” “treason,” and “domestic terrorists,” by nearly every blue checkmark. Whenever a prominent Republican like Ted Cruz tweets, the replies are dominated by leftists reciting these lines right on cue, still pretending to be haunted by the event.” … “Hypocrisy is only bothersome to people interested in truth, but the left has different rules.”

COVID-19 Status Update, February 2021. Fred Lipfert and Sheldon Lipsky – “It is always problematic to predict the future based on a few months’ data. Still, should this maximum infection rate continue through 2021, the probability of infection during the year could exceed 30%.”

Explaining My Position on Covid-19 and the Restrictions. Don Boudreaux – “In my latest column for AIER I offer some of the reasons why I believe that the public’s fear of Covid-19 is far in excess of what the facts warrant.”

In Report Affirming Nearly No Transmission In Schools, CDC Slips In Shocking Data About Asymptomatic Spread. Georgi Boorman – “If the contagiousness of people without symptoms does not drive the spread of SARS-COV-2, then restrictions like lockdowns and mask mandates on the general public don’t make sense.”

Even NPR Admits Florida Is A Success And California A Failure. The Committee to Unleash Prosperity – Greg Allen: “In late fall, we saw this horrible surge that grew even worse after Thanksgiving. …. this sustained, horrible surge of infections, the worst in the nation, for many weeks after the second lockdown was ordered. And the fact is, California’s deaths per capita numbers, which, you know, officials have used throughout the pandemic to defend these very tough restrictions, are in many cases either the same or worse than many states that have been far less restrictive.”

The Blue States Are Now the Beggar States. Stephen Moore – “there is almost no evidence that lockdowns, business closures, stay-at-home orders and other strategies have reduced the infection rates or death rates from the virus.” … “Fifty states experimented with responses to the virus, and the verdict is in: The big blue states got crushed.” … “The “progressives” in these states voted for higher taxes, more regulations, high energy prices and economic lockdowns. That’s democracy in action.”

Democrats starting to panic over a reckoning at the polls for blue-state bungling of COVID. Thomas Lifson – “the economic and social price paid by residents of states with lockdown hard-line Democrat governors like Illinois, Minnesota, Michigan, New York, and California is starting to look way too high.”
