Daily News Roundup

Stephen Miller Senior Advisor to President Trump tweeted on 5/15/2021: Trump gave Biden 3 vaccines, economy primed to roar, energy independence, peace in Mideast, rock-solid border. What did Biden do? Shut the schools, inflated the $, crushed energy sector, destabilized Mideast, erased SW border. Biden inherited a royal flush—and he mucked the hand.

Jason Miller Newsmax contributor and Senior Advisor to President Trump tweeted on 5/15/2021: This is silly – President Trump brings peace to the Middle East, Biden screws it all up, so the @nytimes tries to hit Trump over it???


Julie Kelly contributor to American Greatness exposes the treatment of January 6th prisoner Jacob Lang: They are literally torturing me exactly like they do to political prisoners in China. I’m a united states [sic] citizen and Constitutional patriot and they are . . . torturing me. I’m not even convicted of a crime!! This is how they treat ‘innocent until proven guilty people in America???

President Biden, on Monday, issued what many could perceive as a threat: If the unvaccinated get vaccinated, they will protect themselves and other unvaccinated people around them. If they do not, states with low vaccination rates may see those rates go up – may see this progress reversed. Those who are not vaccinated will end up paying the price. Is this a threat?

Daniel Greenfield contributor to Frontpage Magazine: Public health measures are not meant to be a means to an end. When you repeatedly tell people to do things, not because they’re medically valid in and of themselves, but because you’re ‘nudging’ them to do what you really want, that’s a totalitarian scheme that destroys public trust. This is the ‘nudge’ that Obama embraced.


Chris Bousquet contributor to Data-Smart City Solutions: A potential objection to this argument may concede that influencing behavior is an important part of government’s role, but that nudges extend government’s influence to behaviors that we would deem unacceptable for the purview of laws. In other words, if you have to nudge to produce some behavior, it’s probably because a direct law wouldn’t be acceptable. By this reasoning, to say that nudging is acceptable because laws are acceptable is disingenuous, as nudging is often used to do the things we won’t allow laws to do.

Peter Navarro PhD in Economics and author who served in the Trump administration: Stacy Abrams is the new Saul Alinsky

Adeel Raja CNN contributor in Pakistan tweeted: “The world today needs a Hitler.”


Glenn Beck sounds the alarm on Critical Race Theory (CRT): “This is re-education. This is indoctrination of our children. And it is so destructive, the only way I can truly describe it is evil.”

Mahogany L. Browne Woke Babies author wrote on the back cover: WOKE BABIES are up early. WOKE BABIES raise their fists in the air. WOKE BABIES cry out for justice. WOKE BABIES grow up to change the world.

John Cleer contributor to American Thinker on emergency use COVID-19 vaccines: Skipping the Phase III trials, getting these results and not just ignoring them, but testing the product on children and infants, in my view, shows criminal intent.

Eric Utter contributor to American Thinker: Mark my words: the progressives who believe in the Holy Trinity of facial diapers, social distancing, and vaccine mandates will soon be screaming that further easing or eliminating any of these will promptly lead to greatly exacerbated global warming/climate change, rising discrimination against the LGBT community and peoples of color, endangered species loss, and rampant Dutch elm disease.

Andrea Widburg and the Gates divorce: There’s no getting away from a point I’ve often made to my children: when people have too much money and power, and these attributes are not offset by a God-centered morality, they’re likely to feel that the ordinary rules that constrain our worst instincts no longer apply to them. Bill was smart to have entered into a generous settlement with Melinda, because I bet she has tales to tell.


National Review Editors: Overturn Roe
The Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear Mississippi’s appeal in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization to decide the fate of the state’s Gestational Age Act. That law, passed in 2018 and held in limbo ever since by the courts, bans abortions after 15 weeks except “in a medical emergency or in case of a severe fetal abnormality.” Nothing in the text or history of the Constitution bars such laws, and the Court should say so. Better still, it should put an end to the long charade of judge-invented abortion law. The Court should say that Roe v. Wade never had any legitimate basis in our Constitution, and return the issue to the people’s representatives. It should do so precisely because this issue is too important not to be decided by the people.

Vadum: Supreme Court Unanimously Rebuffs Biden Administration on Warrantless Searches for Handguns
The Supreme Court unanimously rejected Biden administration arguments in a case from Rhode Island that police should be allowed to enter homes without a warrant to seize handguns. The ruling in the case, Caniglia v. Strom, court file 20-157, came May 17. Erich Pratt, Senior Vice President of Gun Owners of America and the affiliated Gun Owners Foundation, praised the new decision. “The Supreme Court today smacked down the hopes of gun grabbers across the nation,” Pratt said.

0’Connell: Did Democrats with Dr Fauci Scheme to Create Covid to Topple Trump? Covid, Trump, Fauci & a Coup? Everyone now knows our Government hasn’t put America first, but consistently used Covid to control average citizens via power grabs that enlarge states by shutdowns and misinformation. This became obvious when confabulist Dr Fauci casually admitted outdoor masks were pointless, and vaccinated people don’t need masks, at all. So how long did he plan to hide this essential fact? Yet a fearful public was kept chained to the mast, staggering, gasping for air, as the CDC revelled. Did cagey Fauci—who paid China for their virus weaponization clinic—team up w/ Dems to take down Trump? […] A Crazy question, perhaps. Hopefully wrong. But after the exposure of Fauci as a dissembling partisan playing politics with lives, and China’s work designing weaponized viruses—along with Democrats’ utter, mindless, diabolical hatred of the Dems for Trump—is it really completely out of the question?.

McCormick: Visitor Logs Reveal Fauci/Klain Situation Room Meeting After Gain Of Function Moratorium
The high profile summit came just weeks after the Obama administration issued a moratorium on the same “gain of function” experiments that Dr. Fauci now claims were never directly funded by his government agency to take place at the Wuhan lab in China.

Black: Rage of the NeverTrumpers
The apparent suicide plunge of U.S. Representative Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) appears to be the psychopathic backlash of NeverTrumpers who are starting to realize Donald Trump’s defeat in November and the allegations he was attempting to overturn the election by provoking an “insurrection” at the Capitol on January 6 do not bring back the Republican Party of the Bushes and McCain and Romney, as those families seem to imagine. This is only the first shoe dropping. It will soon be followed by the realization of the role the NeverTrumpers have played in shackling the country and the Western world to the unfolding disaster of the Biden presidency. […] Cheney endlessly repeats her faith in the rule of law as the justification for her mortal opposition to the president whom she claims to have voted for just six months ago. This faith in law did not propel her to object to the lawless assault upon Trump by the authors of the Trump-Russia collusion fraud or the first spurious impeachment of him. It is rather the last refuge of someone willfully sacrificing a congressional leadership position to be a useful idiot for the Democrats as they seek, through their iron-fisted control of the national political media, to maintain the Real Big Lie—namely, that the November election’s results have been carefully and impartially reviewed by the courts, and that the ex-president incited an insurrection on January 6.

Feldman: A Legal System Corrupted
I’ve always had great respect for our legal system. It’s as good as any of which I’m aware. No, I’m not naive. I’m fully aware that every institution depends on the competence and integrity of those involved and that means sometimes decisions are rendered that are wrong — muddy thinking and sometimes corrupt judges; self-seeking prosecutors; incompetent counsel; bad and poorly written laws; false testimony by liars — all contribute now and then to unjust resolutions. But in recent years, my faith has been even more badly shaken by continued and obvious corruption all the way down the line. This week there are three instances that confirm my belief that something is seriously amiss in our justice system: . . .

Codevilla: Censorship, Masks, Vaccines, Right, and Revolution
he New York Times on May 6 published a full-dress condemnation of Facebook’s decision merely to continue suspending Donald Trump from its platform. The Times said that “our democracy” demands shielding voters and their representatives from what it considers falsehood concerning the 2020 presidential election. Rather than trying to show that any particular statement was false, or demonstrating the truth in opposition to Trump, the Times merely pointed out that his “lies” were dangerous because the majority of state legislatures had already voted to impose restrictions on the practices that had made 2020’s electoral outcome possible. Hence Trump and all other purveyors of “untrustworthy content” must be banned permanently. By the same token, any number of persons and entities involved in managing the 2020 election have refused to turn over their records to legislatures that want to audit them. Most recently, Maricopa County, Arizona apparently deleted a directory full of election databases before delivering to the Arizona legislature the equipment on which it was stored. (Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer denies that’s what happened. A spokesman for the auditors says they alleged no malice aforethought on the part of the county; they merely asked for clarification. ”Maybe it was deleted because it was a duplicate of something that was elsewhere.”) The bigger point is this: No law empowers the Times and Facebook, much less officials in Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, etc., to decide what is and is not properly part of public discourse about elections. The First Amendment argues against it. Yet they presume to censor. By what right? Questioning such claims of right is no mere rhetorical exercise. It points to the fundamental clash of regimes that is revolutionizing American life in our time. It is the clash between . . .

Spencer: Meet the Team of Israel-Haters Joe Biden Has Assembled
Oh yeah, this is sure to work: Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Wednesday, according to the Jewish Press, that he was “sending an envoy to the Middle East to ‘seek to calm tensions’ even as he urged Israel to avoid killing civilians.” Israel does more than any other military force has ever done to avoid killing civilians, so that was not a good sign. Even worse was that the soothing envoy is Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Hady Amr, an indefatigable supporter of the genocidal Palestinian Arab jihad against Israel. Back in 2002, Amr declared: “I was inspired by the Palestinian intifada.” He said that Palestinians would “never, never forget what the Israeli people, the Israeli military, and Israeli democracy have done to Palestinian children. […] After just a few months in office, it was clear that Joe Biden’s handlers’ administration was shaping up to be the most anti-Israel presidency since the founding of the modern State of Israel. That is clear from the appointments Biden’s handlers have made. A sampling: . . .

BlazeTV Staff: ‘What are you afraid of?’: Glenn Beck reacts to new poll that shows how Americans REALLY feel about critical race theory in schools
Americans do not want Marxist critical race theory taught in their kids’ schools, a new poll has found. The poll, conducted by Competitive Edge Research and released by Parents Defending Education, found that an overwhelming 74% of respondents were “somewhat or strongly opposed” to teaching kids the CRT concept that people are automatically either oppressors or oppressed based solely on skin color. Only 6% said they support teaching those lessons in schools. […] “This poll shows it’s not just white Republicans,” Glenn said of those who oppose critical race theory in schools.

Paslay: Ten Questions on Critical Race Theory
Here are 10 questions for Weingarten concerning the use of critical race theory in America’s K-12 Classroom: 1. Should we be teaching children that all White people are inherently racist? This is a central point made by Robin DiAngelo, who regularly facilitates professional development trainings for teachers and other organizations. Her bestselling book, White Fragility has been used to develop so-called “antiracist” curriculum in school districts across America. 2. Should we be teaching children that America is a systemically racist country based on white supremacy? The Oregon Department of Education is promoting a program called “A Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction,” which aims to deconstruct racism in mathematics, and make visible the “toxic characteristics of White supremacy culture in math.” 3. . . .
