In case you missed it, Tucker Carlson had a great opening monologue last night about how Google and Facebook are, more than ever, blocking your ability to see anything that goes against the Leftwing narrative about Donald Trump’s presidency and especially his handling of the Chinese Virus panic.
Normally I try not to post information that is widely available, but you need to see this (surprisingly as of this writing it has only 122 views).
I was especially interested in the discussion with Breitbart editor Alex Marlow that begins at the 9:40 mark where he explains how the tricky b******* at Google have limited Breibart’s reach.
And, I guess you have already seen how the Leftwing media has viciously attacked the African doctor speaking on the video that was taken down yesterday. Just a reminder that ALL Black Lives Do Not Matter! Clearly, she is one African immigrant the Left would love to deport!
And, one more thing. I have argued for years that you all should consider setting up blogs and websites of your own. You know if Biden wins that most alternative media will be wiped out, probably me too. But, I’m thinking if thousands of you are blogging, they might not be able to silence everyone.
In my ongoing quest (here too!) to help us all figure out ways to fight back against the Marxist Left’s attacks on our culture and institutions, here comes another opportunity (in this case for Mainers) to push back now (not waiting for the ballot box in November!).
And, let me say, there might be some silver lining to the COVID panic.
Maybe, just maybe, families will realize they can educate their kids at home and keep them out of the clutches of the likes of Shenna Bellows and the Southern Poverty Law Center, and while they are at it encourage them to find a useful trade or career path that does not involve the Left’s indoctrination centers—colleges.
This is why the center partnered with the Southern Poverty Law Center to put on eight online sessions dealing with racism in school.
“These are very important topics to be having, especially in these times, as we are so mindful of racial inequity,” Bellows said.
These classes are a direct response to social justice movements across the country such as Black Lives Matter, and organizers say they’re focusing on teachers in grades K-12 so students can grow up knowing how to address racism.
For others of you: Propaganda projects like this are very likely being organized in your state, so look for it and speak up!
Remember what Mark Steyn said:
So wanker*** Right’s theory that all we gotta do is sit back and let these clowns run amok and their defects will be so obvious, people will come running to us and November will be a landslide. They’ve assured us of that bollocks for decades as they lost the schools and they lost the pop culture, and they lost everything else even now, unto the statue on the village green. Speak up, speak out, to the school board, to your coworkers, to your neighbors, because you can’t have a culture war if one side doesn’t even show up.
***Wanker: Someone excessively and annoyingly pretentious and/or false.

There is nothing the Hard Left hates more than someone in their bubble breaking out and telling the truth about what the extremists have been saying for decades.
That’s why Michael Shellenberger is going to be vilified and why you should buy his book to show support for a brave truth-teller. At Amazon.
Here (hat tip: Cathy) he explains why he had to speak up now and one reason is that he has a teenage daughter who was fearful because the likes of Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are saying that unless we make drastic changes, the world will end in only a few years due to the climate change “crisis.”
On Behalf Of Environmentalists, I Apologize For The Climate Scare
On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years. Climate change is happening. It’s just not the end of the world. It’s not even our most serious environmental problem.
I may seem like a strange person to be saying all of this. I have been a climate activist for 20 years and an environmentalist for 30.
But as an energy expert asked by Congress to provide objective expert testimony, and invited by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to serve as Expert Reviewer of its next Assessment Report, I feel an obligation to apologize for how badly we environmentalists have misled the public.
Here are some facts few people know:
Humans are not causing a “sixth mass extinction”
The Amazon is not “the lungs of the world”
Climate change is not making natural disasters worse
Fires have declined 25% around the world since 2003
The amount of land we use for meat — humankind’s biggest use of land — has declined by an area nearly as large as Alaska
The build-up of wood fuel and more houses near forests, not climate change, explain why there are more, and more dangerous, fires in Australia and California
Carbon emissions are declining in most rich nations and have been declining in Britain, Germany, and France since the mid-1970s
Netherlands became rich not poor while adapting to life below sea level
We produce 25% more food than we need and food surpluses will continue to rise as the world gets hotter
Habitat loss and the direct killing of wild animals are bigger threats to species than climate change
Wood fuel is far worse for people and wildlife than fossil fuels
Preventing future pandemics requires more not less “industrial” agriculture
I know that the above facts will sound like “climate denialism” to many people. But that just shows the power of climate alarmism.
I became an environmentalist at 16 when I threw a fundraiser for Rainforest Action Network. At 27 I helped save the last unprotected ancient redwoods in California. In my 30s I advocated renewables and successfully helped persuade the Obama administration to invest $90 billion into them. Over the last few years I helped save enough nuclear plants from being replaced by fossil fuels to prevent a sharp increase in emissions
But until last year, I mostly avoided speaking out against the climate scare. Partly that’s because I was embarrassed. After all, I am as guilty of alarmism as any other environmentalist. For years, I referred to climate change as an “existential” threat to human civilization, and called it a “crisis.”
But mostly I was scared. I remained quiet about the climate disinformation campaign because I was afraid of losing friends and funding.
The few times I summoned the courage to defend climate science from those who misrepresent it I suffered harsh consequences. And so I mostly stood by and did next to nothing as my fellow environmentalists terrified the public.
But then, last year, things spiraled out of control.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said “The world is going to end in twelve years if we don’t address climate change.” Britain’s most high-profile environmental group claimed “Climate Change Kills Children.”
Even if you don’t read the whole book, go buy it! Brave men like Michael Shellenberger must be supported.
And, just a reminder, the Left is very active now promoting the concept of ‘climate refugees’ as the next big reason that the western world (responsible for climate change they say!) must open borders to millions of migrants as a new class of refugee. See RRW’s ‘climate refugees‘ category.
The gist of the piece is how Bloomberg goes into certain selected cities and Congressional districts and pours money into propaganda to change the minds of elected officials and business leaders about the need to import and welcome ‘new Americans.’ He has been at this for ten years already!
Now he wants to be sure to get all you xenophobes to see the light. By the way, the reason he has to use the word xenophobia instead of racism is that, as we have been chronicling for years, many black ‘new Americans’ don’t like our longtime African Americans (and vice versa).
The same goes for African Americans and Hispanics. Nor is there any love lost between Asians and African Americans.
On the Left, while the anarchists are busy tearing down America and American culture, moneybags like Bloomberg are working away as Robbins describes:
President Trump has expanded his immigration ban to affect vital U.S. industries like tech, manufacturing and hospitality through the end of 2020. The latest executive order signed on June 22 further restricts immigration, following a less drastic measure made in April. This will slow our recovery with states now reopening, but it’s no surprise.
His platform of cracking down on immigration has been unflinchingly consistent. He has blocked immigrants from predominantly Muslim countries, dismantled our refugee resettlement program, separated migrant children from their parents and attempted to end DACA.
But here’s the ugly truth that Americans forget: Blaming immigrants for bringing diseases, taking our jobs, making us unsafe and threatening American culture has been part of our politics since the country’s founding. It doesn’t matter that none of these impending immigration disasters have come to pass. Or that immigration is America’s greatest global competitive advantage. With each generation, new leaders claim that today’s immigrants are somehow different — less able to assimilate, more likely to take our jobs or commit crimes. And we believe them.
So why do we keep getting duped?
Both the social science literature and forward-looking leaders in deeply conservative parts of the country have an answer: It’s a mistake to focus just on President Trump’s most anti-immigrant rhetoric. We also need to focus on the millions of Americans — and not just the most xenophobic ones — who think the president may have a point.
As a country, we’re broadly in favor of immigration, but we’re also incredibly nervous about changes to our culture and our communities. When we’re unsure of what to believe, we look first to our local networks. Studies show that when we’re given information that contradicts what our friends and neighbors believe, we actually double down and become more strident. The more facts we throw at our opponents, the more polarized we become.
How we beat Rep. Steve King:
A prime example is the conservative Iowa district, which had been represented for 17 years by Congress’s most stridently anti-immigrant member: Steve King. To change the tenor of the debate at home, local residents took the initiative and formed a group called One Siouxland to “welcome and support every Siouxland resident” and help all “understand, appreciate and embrace our changing demographics.”
Together with New American Economy, One Siouxland wrote a strategic integration plan to establish community resource centers, a leadership development academy, small business loans and dozens of other programs and policies focused on giving underrepresented populations a seat at the table.
Most recently, One Siouxland used locally produced art to host dialogues between Trump voters and non-Trump voters about American identity. This welcoming attitude has allowed more businesses of all types to invest there, including some of the food processing plants [Meat packers changing America!—ed]now keeping our food supply chain functioning.
And now a district that was the stronghold of the anti-immigrant movement has said enough, and the business community successfully backed an opponent who recently defeated King in the Republican primary election.
Over at Refugee Resettlement Watch I keep a close eye on a favorite issue of the Left and that is their prediction that millions of “climate refugees” will be surging across the globe looking for new homes where you live. So every day I look through alerts on the subject.
The number of alerts for stories on the “climate catastrophe” topic are expanding exponentially, including ones like this about how climate change is responsible for rich people leaving coastal Florida and thus pushing gentrification into low income neighborhoods inland. The theme of course is that the rich are going to hurt the poor (again).
But, I have noticed a new angle from the hard Left (because they never miss a beat and famously never let a good crisis go to waste) including now linking the Chinese Virus ‘crisis’ to climate change (yes, making any stretch they can to get their message out).
Here at a demonstration in London this week, Extinction Rebellion’s banner says it all.
“COVID Today, Climate Tomorrow”: Climate Activists Stage Protest Installation in London
In Britain, climate activists from Extinction Rebellion staged a protest in London’s Trafalgar Square Monday, lining up over 2,000 pairs of children’s shoes to draw attention to the ongoing threat of climate catastrophe. Activists are demanding the government tackle the climate crisis and refuse to bail out extractive industries as part of the coronavirus recovery effort. A banner reading ”COVID Today, Climate Tomorrow, Act Now” was unfurled at the protest. “One crisis doesn’t stop because another starts,” said Extinction Rebellion.
And, here NY Magazine is linking Corornavirus and Climate too in a lengthier description of a doomsday scenario.
The author predicts a much hotter summer (I wish it would get here because it is a cold spring where I live!). However, the full impact of their climate catastrophe prediction won’t be felt until 2070. So I leave it to you youngsters to report when that day comes.
