The Real World Reasserts Itself, by Patrick J. Buchanan

Black lives don’t matter to Black Lives Matter when the black lives lost are at the hands of other blacks. From Patrick J. Buchanan at buchanan.org:

Since the death of George Floyd beneath the knee of a cop in Minneapolis on Memorial Day, the nation has been instructed by its cultural elites that this is the daily reality that a racist America has too long ignored

Our nation, it was shouted in our faces, is a place where white cops harass, brutalize, assault and kill Black Americans regularly and with impunity.

“Defund the police!” the Black Lives Matter demand went out, to be echoed and re-echoed by BLM’s amen corner of progressive elites.

The pendulum may be swinging back, for this weekend reintroduced us to the old familiar world.

In Washington, D.C., about midnight Saturday, at a block party in the Southeast sector of the city, three shooters fired 100 rounds, wounded 20, killed a teenager and left a female police officer in critical condition.

It appears to have been an attempted massacre, a slaughter.

“More than 115 people have been slain in the District this year, a 17 percent increase over this time in 2019, which ended the year with a decade high,” reports The Washington Post.

D.C.’s numbers, however, pale by comparison to Chicago, where this weekend recorded 32 more people shot, with three dead.

According to the Sun-Times, there were 106 homicides in the city in July, a single-month body count almost equal to the toll D.C. has piled up in all of the first seven months of 2020.

A disproportionate number of the dead and wounded are Black Americans, and a disproportionate number of the shooters and killers are Black men.

Tucker Carlson Announces George Floyd Fatally Overdosed with Fentanyl and A Lawsuit Is Brought to Force Release of HCQ to the Public, by Paul Craig Roberts

Paul Craig Roberts has done a great job of sniffing out the inconsistencies and lies concerning both George Floyd’s death and the coronavirus outbreak. From Roberts at paulcraigroberts.com:

Tucker Carlson on Fox News Announces What I and  John-Paul Leonard Told You Almost 2 Months ago—George Floyd Fatally Overdosed with Fentanyl

A Lawsuit Is Brought to Force Release of HCQ to the Public

The rest of the media continues to lie to protect the anti-white agenda and Big Pharma’s profit agenda.

Here is Tucker Carlson’s report:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2eg4vfcdITw

YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and the rest of the censoring Nazi media have been protecting the official lie on Floyd, just as they do on everything else, such as HCQ, Russiagate, 9/11, Iranian nukes, peaceful protests, Russian invasions, so watch Tucker before the “free American media” cancels him.  Note that both Tucker and his guest are sufficiently intimidated by the media claim that Floyd was murdered to make it clear that they are not claiming that the police had no responsibility in Floyd’s death, but they don’t identify what the responsibility is. When even Tucker Carlson can be intimidated, you can see the power of the lie.

As Minnesota’s black attorney general, Keith Ellison, clearly admits on Tucker Carlson, he withheld the police video of their encounter with Floyd in order to aid his prosecution of the police officers who he falsely indicted.

In other words the video does not support the indictment or the official story that the despicable lying presstitutes have beat into your heads by endless repetition and misrepresentation.

BLM Uses ‘Mafia Tactics’ To Threaten Cuban Restaurant Owner With Diversity Demands, by Tyler Durden

Make no mistake, beneath virtually everything BLM does is the threat of violence. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

The owner of a Cuban restaurant in Louisville has decried a list of ‘diversity demands sent to him and dozens of other small business owners by Black Lives Matter activists – which include guaranteeing that at least 23% of staff are black, 23% of the business’s supplies are from black-owned retailers, and 1.5% of their net sales go to black charities. They also need to publicly display a sign showing their support for the movement.

Restaurant owner Fernando Martinez and other members of the Cuban community on Sunday protesting against the BLM list of demands.

If they don’t comply, the business owners face a series of “repercussions,” including social media shaming, ‘invasive reclamation’ where black owned businesses would set up competing ‘booths and tables’ outside the stores, and they would have ‘their storefronts fucked with,’ according to the Daily Mail.

The letter was sent to business owners in the city’s ‘NuLu’ East Market District during a July 24 protest which forced some area businesses to close. BLM argues that the neighborhood was only able to flourish after a housing project was demolished in the 2000s, which ‘robbed the black community of opportunities and wiped out their homes,’ according to the report.

Are You Loving Your Servitude (Part Two), by Jim Quinn (with link to Part One)

What’s behind the coronavirus hoax and the George Floyd riots. From Jim Quinn at theburningplatform.com:

In Part One of this article I laid out the argument Huxley’s dystopian vision of the future had played out over many decades, but now I observe Orwell’s darker vision in motion since the start of this century.

70 years after 1984: How today compares with Orwell's prophetic ...

All the “solutions” being imposed by those in power don’t solve anything, because they aren’t designed to solve anything. These are nothing but short-term emergency sustaining maneuvers to keep the dying patient alive, while the criminals ransack his house, extracting whatever wealth he has saved. Throwing $1,200 bones and $600 a week bribes to what they consider the Main Street riff raff, while funneling trillions into the pockets of Too Big To Trust Wall Street banks, billionaire oligarchs, connected mega-corporations, and pliable corrupt politicians, is just what the doctor ordered for the ruling class.

Their weak-kneed toadies at the Federal Reserve have dutifully fulfilled their mandate of no banker or hedge fund left behind. While Main Street is beset with potholes, boarded up small business storefronts (if they haven’t been looted and burned), homeless drug addicts, and the unemployed lining up at local food banks, Wall Street is being paved in gold, with its inhabitants eating caviar, drinking champagne, and celebrating their brilliance in owning a central bank, guaranteed to enrich them.

It’s Gonna Blow, by Fred Reed

We know all about, we’ve been endless informed, about the grievances of the aggrieved. What we don’t hear about is the rage of a lot of people who have just been watching the antics of the aggrieved and have not yet responded. From Fred Reed at unz.com:

Be a Miracle if it Don’t

Black militia at Stone Mountain. Cocky, heavily armed, outgunning the police. White militias have similar firepower. A fight is entirely possible. In downtown America.

Hoo-boy. She’s ready to explode, go high order. Smoking ruins, dead bodies, seething hatreds, and a country that can’t be put back together. It may not happen, but she looks ready.

No one is in charge in this collapsing shell game of a country. In Louisville hundreds of armed blacks threaten to “burn the motherfucker down,” meaning Louisville, if they don’t get their way. All cringe before them, with reason. They have guns. Larger numbers marched in Georgia, armed, ready to rock and roll. BLM says it will “go into the suburbs” to get Whitey. Who will stop them? Not the government. It fears them. Weimar Kentucky. An American Freikorps.

America today in video. Scroll down to the New York footage. It’s Planet of the Apes.

Gun sales are way up. A friend in Rhode Island went to a gun shop and found a long line outside. A columnist in Virginia was told that the other stores report long waitlists for prize arms, notably the AR 15. People are afraid, or fed up. They are arming. The spring winds.

There is no leadership, no one in charge. In Trump we have perhaps the weakest President in history, mouthy, preening, ineffectual, much talk and no action. He did nothing while the rioters looted, burned, and vandalized, then disengaged himself from the pandemic, leaving decisions to the states. Much cawing and gaudy feathers, but no bird inside.

Sports Entertainment, by the Zman

People find it easier and easier to do without sports as time goes on, and the sports industry will find it harder and harder to get those people back. From the Zman at theburningplatform.com:

Last week, the Wisconsin athletic director sent out a letter to supporters that the university would lose 60-70 million dollars this year due to the reduction in football games being played in the fall. If the season is cancelled, the losses will top 100 million just for the fall. That may be an exaggeration, but there is no question that a cancellation of the college football season will cost the big-time college programs tens of millions in revenue. It is a billion-dollar industry.

ZeroHedge pointed out that ESPN has a billion dollars in ad space to sell for this fall’s college football season. They also have ad space for other sports as well, but college football is the prime mover of ad space. It is unlikely that ad buyers will want to buy ads when ESPN is running replays of card games this fall. ESPN’s primary income stream is mandatory cable fees, they net close to nine billion in fees every year, but a billion dollars in ad revenue still counts for something.

Of course, everyone knows no one is watching ESPN at the moment, but that has no impact on the cable fees. The way it works is a service like Hulu of Comcast pays ESPN nine dollars per month for each subscriber to their service. These deals are not contingent on viewership. As ZeroHedge points out, the language in these deals does not require the content provider to deliver particular content. As long as ESPN is beaming something, they get paid for it.

Is Racism Responsible for Today’s Black Problems? by Walter E. Williams

The biggest “privilege” a child can be born into is an intact family. From Walter E. Williams at lewrockwell.com:

I doubt whether any American would defend the police treatment of George Floyd that led to his death. But many Americans are supporting some of the responses to Floyd’s death — rioting, looting, wanton property destruction, assaults on police and other kinds of mayhem by both whites and blacks.

The pretense is that police conduct stands as the root of black problems. According to the NAACP, from 1882-1968, there were 3,446 black people lynched at the hands of whites. Today, being murdered by whites or policemen should be the least of black worries. In recent times, there is an average of 9,252 black-on-black murders every year. Over the past 35 years, that translates into nearly 324,000 blacks murdered at the hands of other blacks. Only a tiny percentage of blacks are killed by police. For example, in Chicago this year, there were 414 homicides, with a total of 2,078 people shot. So far in 2020, three people have been killed by police and four were shot. Manhattan Institute scholar Heather Mac Donald reports that “a police officer is 181/2 times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male is to be killed by a police officer.” Crime is a major problem for many black communities, but how much of it can be attributed to causes such as institutional racism, systemic racism and white privilege?

Demolishing the Lincoln Myth, Yet Again, by David Gordon

When the War Between the States began, Lincoln was far more concerned with collecting taxes than he was with ending slavery. From David Gordon at mises.org:

The Problem with Lincoln is the culmination of Tom DiLorenzo’s many years of research on Abraham Lincoln. It is a masterly summing-up and extension of his earlier classics The Real Lincoln (2002) and Lincoln Unmasked (2006). DiLorenzo is both a historian and an economist with an expert knowledge of Austrian economics and also of the public choice school. This background enables him to grasp what most other historians of the Civil War period miss, the centralizing economic plan behind Lincoln’s policies.

DiLorenzo calls attention to a vital fact that demolishes the mythological view that Lincoln’s primary motive for opposing secession in 1861 was his distaste for slavery. Precisely the opposite is true. It is well known that, in an effort to promote compromise, a constitutional amendment was proposed in Congress that forever forbade interference with slavery in states where it already existed. Lincoln referred to the proposal, the Corwin Amendment, in his first inaugural, stating that he was not opposed to the amendment, since it merely made explicit the existing constitutional arrangement regarding slavery. Of course, Lincoln was not telling the truth; nothing in the Constitution prior to the Corwin Amendment prohibited amendments to end slavery, so this new proposal did not just make the existing constitutional arrangement explicit. Readers can judge the Corwin Amendment for themselves, in a helpful set of original documents that our author includes in the book. (The Corwin Amendment is on p. 217.)

Princeton’s Racism Problem, by Thomas DiLorenzo

The pretzel logic that passes for thought even in the Ivy League. From Thomas DiLorenzo at lewrockwell.com:

On July 4th some three hundred faculty, staff, and alumni of Princeton University sent a signed letter to the university president, the provost, the deans, vice president for campus life, and the Princeton cabinet essentially condemning the entire institution of being irredeemably racist and white supremacist. The signatories of the letter claim to speak for the “people of color” on the campus. “Anti-Blackness is foundational to America,” the first sentence of the letter declared, and “plays a powerful role at institutions like Princeton . . .” “Anti-Black racism” is said to “continue to thrive on campus,” said the privileged, pampered, and over-payed Ivy League professors and administrators.

If this is true, one wonders why on earth any black parents would even consider sending their children to such a racist hellhole. Or why a black academic would want to work there when there are so many other colleges and universities that would be more welcoming.

The Back Of The Hand, by the Zman

A fair amount of the time those who pursue trendy political causes are looking for attention from their ostensible enemies. From the Zman at theburningplatform.com:

Establishment types were clucking about the news of Andrew Sullivan leaving his post at NY Magazine. He wrote a typically long winded farewell column, stating that he was being pushed out by the new woke rabble. Whether or not that is true is hard to know, as Sullivan is prone to exaggeration and hysteria, but it was accepted as true by so-called conservatives and the “old style” liberals. It was another ominous sign that the woke revolution is consolidating power.

The details of his case are not all that important, as it lines up with other incidents involving less creative story tellers. The New York Times has been dealing with a public revolt by the woke young staffers. These are mostly emotional young women of various flavors, who start sobbing whenever they hear a discouraging word. Collectively they become a storm of shrieking harpies that manages to get its way. These tantrums are now being spun as the new ideological revolution.

The incident itself offers some insight into how left-wing politics has evolved over the last decade. Sullivan is a competent and productive writer, but his insights are just banal liberal boilerplate. His act was always derivative. He is a reboot of Truman Capote or maybe the literary Liberace. He is a professional homosexual, who says harsh things about normal Americans, but in a flamboyant and flippant style. The establishment subversive always puts style over substance.
