Stephen Green brings his artisinally-selected top (and bottom) headlines of the week to Scott Ott and Bill Whittle, and you, dear viewer.
With cries to “defund the police” in the wake of the death of George Floyd, Bill Whittle says cops should stage a 7-day sick-out to show what happens without the presence of law enforcement. Can you imagine no police? Would a nationwide case of the blue flu prove effective?
Bari Weiss blisters The New York Times monolithically-Progressive Orwellian anti-wrongthink culture, as the centrist opinion editor quits to escape the task of stamping out fresh ideas while “publishing our 4000th op-ed arguing that Donald Trump is a unique danger to the country.”
The Washington Post story indicates much of the $660 billion COVID-19 Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) — cheap or free loans — went to big firms, Members of Congress and others who didn’t need it. Some 90,000 loans apparently produced no jobs, and 43 Planned Parenthood locations too the federal cash.
From the debate over the result of 2+2, to the offensive manliness of office towers, to President Trump’s “dark and divisive” Mt. Rushmore speech, Stephen Green compiles a list of at least 7 unshakeable, irrefutable, verifiable, proofs we have reached peak stupid in 2020…or at least, we hope we have.
As of early July 9, 2020, police don’t know who tore a statue of Frederick Douglass from its base in a Rochester, NY, park and abandoned against a chain-link fence on the anniversary of his most famous anti-slavery speech. It wouldn’t make much sense if it were the same kind of protestors who vandalize statues of Confederate figures.
Greg Gutfeld at Fox News labels the media “irredeemably evil” when ABC News tweets about a “luxury car” that attacks a crowd of peaceful Black lives matter protestors. Never mind the race or motivations of the driver…you know, the actual facts of the story that didn’t neatly fit the narrative.
“Resisting is desperation,” says Mike Muse in a column at Medium.com attempting to explain “Why Black People Resist Arrest”. With police brutality, racial injustice, and mob violence in the news daily, it’s time to take a look at some of the underlying motivations.
As the official Democratic Party presses further to the extremes, backing monument destruction, and calling Mt. Rushmore a memorial to white supremacy, millions of patriotic, America-loving Democrats want to know where to go to get their party back.
Governors, mayors and others talk about retreating to COVID-19 lockdowns in states, cities and counties nationwide, even though the data shows that mass lockdown was the wrong approach to stem the pandemic. COVID-19 is a picky eater, so instead of building a fence around everyone, we should isolate only the most vulnerable — the elderly and those who have certain conditions.
Paul Waldman at The Washington Post says that Chief Justice John Roberts’ pro-abortion ruling in June Medical Services v. Russo at the Supreme Court this week may have saved Republicans 2020 election prospects, by muting pro-choice critics and damping their support for an uninspiring candidate named Joe Biden.
