Daily News Roundup
Frank Miele columnist for Real Clear Politics: The real Big Lie is that America is great because Americans are obedient. In fact, America is great because Americans are independent, rebellious and rowdy — just like Donald Trump. “Voluntary cooperation” be damned. Let the evidence speak for itself, and let the people make up their own minds. We certainly don’t need Liz Cheney and Elizabeth Drew to tell us what to think.
J.B. Shurk contributor to American Thinker: There is no problem in the United States that could not be solved if we were still a nation of critical thinkers. But critical thinking has been intentionally replaced by dogma. Having a degree is not equivalent to having an education. Knowing something is not the same as understanding it. In a world saturated with information, the “key” to distinguishing between truth and falsehood is one question, one word: “why?”
Gray Mirror: Some say our nation has seen better days, but America still has three great industries: medicine, propaganda, and inflation.
Dan Gelernter contributor to American Greatness: Caring about the whole world is a fancy way of caring only about oneself.
Melissa Mackenzie contributor to American Spectator: America, home of the free because of the brave, lacks brave people. Memorial Day approaches and too many Americans cannot fathom believing in anything enough to risk their lives for that belief. Worse, they scorn the people who do believe. Americans, rich and coddled, have turned inward and worry about risking anything because they have too much to lose. So they play it safe and protective — but mostly they play.
Kelley Paul, Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-KY) wife, makes it clear that she has had it with the daily threats targeted against her family: I am sick of the hatred and vitriol from people who boast of their ’empathy and compassion’ in their bios. Rand will continue to stand up for our constitutionally protected liberties. He will keep questioning the ‘experts.’ We won’t be intimidated. And yes, we have guns.
Julie Kelly contributor to American Thinker interviewed one of the January 6 political prisoners, Richard Barnett, asking him what he would like to tell the American people: “Very simple, pray for the guys who are still in there. They’re not working and have a family to support. Help pay their bills.
Brian Joondeph contributor to American Thinker: Awareness ribbons are so yesterday. Today it’s the mask that demonstrates caring, scientific acumen, and virtue. It also represents the political left. Forget driving around with a Biden/Harris bumper sticker on your car. Just wear a mask while driving alone and everyone will know who you voted for.
Sundance contributor to The Last Refuge: Because the COVID narrative is built upon a foundation of fraud, those who have pushed the usefulness of it are often caught in hypocritical behaviors. Some have said “they don’t believe their own message”; however, that is only partially true. It’s not that they don’t believe the control message, it’s more along the lines of knowing the message is a lie; as a result they do not follow the rules they demand of others.
Dr. Angelina Farella, AFLDS Pediatric Medical Director sounding the alarm on the unprecedented number of COVID-19 vaccine side effects: “We’ve never seen this level of side effects for any vaccine without the FDA taking action.”
Andrew Kerr contributor to Daily Caller: The corporate press has made an abrupt about-face in its framing of the lab leak theory in recent weeks after spending the better part of the year casting down the origin theory as a baseless conspiracy.
Noel S. Smith contributor to American Thinker: Individually, progressive Dems (that would be most of them) have no shame. They are easily swayed by the communal post-truth that plagues their political districts with anti-reason rhetoric. But collectively, their awareness is acute, exhibited by unwavering commitment to their soul-destroying agenda.

Sundance: Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr Uses “Wrap-Up-Smear”, Seeds Grand Jury Story to Washington Post
Everything about a grand jury is supposed to be kept secret to protect the innocent (5th Amendment issue). However, if the motives of the prosecutor are political, they want to exploit Lawfare by leaking information to media. This is the process Nancy Pelosi called “the wrap-up smear“, only this time it is being coordinated with Lawfare. Create a fraudulent accusation; then leak (or merchandise) the accusation to media; then “merchandise” the media report of the leak as evidence to support the fraudulent accusation. This is precisely what Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance is doing with a leaked story about his grand jury against President Trump. You can tell this is the political motive because grand jury secrecy is dismissed in favor of the media leak. If the motive wasn’t political, the DA wouldn’t need the leak.

From The Desk Of Donald J. Trump: President Trump responds to Manhattan DA leak to Washington Post:
“This is a continuation of the greatest Witch Hunt in American history. It began the day I came down the escalator in Trump Tower, and it’s never stopped. They wasted two years and $48 million in taxpayer dollars on Mueller and Russia Russia Russia, Impeachment Hoax #1, Impeachment Hoax #2, and it continues to this day, with illegally leaked confidential information. No other President in history has had to put up with what I have had to, and on top of all that, I have done a great job for our Country, whether it’s taxes, regulations, our Military, Veterans, Space Force, our Borders, speedy creation of a great vaccine (said to be a miracle!), and protecting the Second Amendment. This is purely political, and an affront to the almost 75 million voters who supported me in the Presidential Election, and it’s being driven by highly partisan Democrat prosecutors.New York City and State are suffering the highest crime rates in their history, and instead of going after murderers, drug dealers, human traffickers, and others, they come after Donald Trump. Interesting that today a poll came out indicating I’m far in the lead for the Republican Presidential Primary and the General Election in 2024.
Our Country is broken, our elections are rigged, corrupt, and stolen, our prosecutors are politicized, and I will just have to keep on fighting like I have been for the last five years!”

Choi: Trump working with Gingrich on policy agenda: report
Sources familiar with the matter told the publication that Trump had been meeting with Gingrich along with sitting down with his former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) at Mar-a-Lago in the past few weeks as they focus on winning back the House and Senate in 2022.
One source told the news outlet that the agenda would have an “America-First” approach on multiple issues such as trade and immigration, describing it as “a policy priority for 2022 and beyond.”

Vespa: Really? That’s the Lawsuit Donald Trump Is Facing Regarding COVID
This was bound to happen. I’m sort of shocked it didn’t happen sooner, but here we are with the triggered left-wingers tossing around lawsuits like candy because they found something offensive. That thing was a phrase Donald Trump used to describe the coronavirus. It’s accurate. It’s not offensive, but that’s not the point. This is about the Left’s unhealthy and unhinged obsession with the former president. Even when he’s gone, he’s facing criminal investigations into his business dealings, but this one deals with two words: China virus. Yes, Trump is being sued because he said that (via the Hill).

PEACEFULLY & PATRIOTICALLY HAVE YOUR VOICES HEARD
Anton: Red Lines
In September of 2020, I published a book entitled The Stakes. It was billed as a “current events” or election-year title. The election behind us, the candidate I recommended is no longer president. But the analysis which led me to that recommendation is very much still “current.”
To recap briefly (but read the whole thing!), the book explains how every prominent and powerful American institution, including the federal government, has been taken over by a hostile elite who use their vast powers to attack, despoil, and insult about half the nation. In the sixth chapter (excerpted here), I outline what I think America will look like if the present ruling class refuses to moderate, cannot be forced to share power, and has the wherewithal to keep its regime going. In the seventh chapter, I sketch several possibilities—from secession to Caesarism to collapse—that might result if it turns out that our overlords are a lot less competent than they think. And in the final chapter (excerpted here), I offer policy and other ideas that might enable America to avoid those fates. That chapter (from which this essay is adapted) culminated with a proposal now being talked about widely, namely, to allow counties, cities, and towns unhappy with their current state government to join another. This would be a practical, and practicable, way to ease Blue and Red Americans’ present discontent and exasperation with each other.

(May 24. 2021) Revolver: Exclusive: Tomorrow Paul Gosar Will Deliver Body Blow to Liberal/Globalist Ruling Class When He Introduces the “MERIT Act”
At this very moment, U.S. government policy actively encourages employers across the country to engage in overt race and sex discrimination in a fight to achieve “equality.” The Biden administration is forgiving massive loans based only on skin color, and has decided that white male business owners don’t deserve any relief from the catastrophic harm of coronavirus lockdowns. America is rapidly becoming a county of first and second-class citizens. But Revolver can now exclusively report Congressman Paul Gosar of Arizona is introducing a bill that would bring all this to a halt, immediately. The Making Excellence Replace Identity Traits (MERIT) Act would force a permanent end to this hateful situation. Most of the laws bringing down America are hundreds or thousands of pages long, so it’s fitting that the MERIT Act is so brief it can be quoted in full here: . . .

Sundance: Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Signs Big Tech Accountability Bill, Permitting FL Residents to Sue Big Tech for Deplatforming, Targeting or Censorship
The legislature of Florida and Governor Ron DeSantis waste no time in confronting the fast pace of leftist ideology with legislative and executive order moves to protect citizens within the Sunshine state. The speed of their united effort is actually quite remarkable. Today Governor Ron DeSantis signed SB 7072, a Florida law permitting citizens to sue Big Tech for deplatforming, targeting or censorship. Under SB 7072: . . .

Sundance: Maricopa County Forensic Auditor Notes Media and County Officials Intentionally Misleading Public About Deleted Vote Result Databases
The media and Maricopa County officials have been claiming that voter result databases were not deleted; and they reference the ability of the auditors to recover the deleted information as proof the voter data was never deleted. However, according to technical forensic expert Ben Cotton, the ‘D’ drive of the EMS Primary Server was in fact deleted.

Windham 2020 election auditor says error rate ‘way higher than we expected’
An auditor in Windham, New Hampshire, said the majority of ballots had a fold in them and are being reviewed through the town’s audit process investigating the 2020 election. As many as 60% of ballots with machine-made or handmade folds were improperly counted by the town’s four scanning machines, Harri Hursti, one of three auditors selected for the process, told the New Hampshire Union Leader on Monday. “The error rate was way higher than we expected,” Hursti said. After the results of the 2020 state House race for the town were particularly close, a hand recount was requested. That resulted in four candidates in Rockingham District 7 gaining around 300 votes and one candidate losing around 100. […] “Because if someone voted for all four Republican candidates and the ballot happened to have its fold line going through St. Laurent’s target, then that might be interpreted by the machines as an overvote, which would then subtract votes from each of those four Republican candidates,” . . .

CHINA: AMERICA’S MORTAL ENEMY
Applebaum, M.D.: COVID: The Perfect Crime?
like a Jacobean tragedy, it seems as if there are no truly good folks/folx playing major roles here – apart from the Taiwanese. There is evidence incriminating the People’s Republic of China, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (possibly others) of being involved in this pandemic in various ways. They would be the same PRC, CDC, and WHO that would be involved in the investigation, big time. I cannot speak for you, but to me, this sounds a lot like a Coca-Cola funded study exploring the effects of sugary soft drinks on childhood obesity. […] Instead of investigating what happened and how to prevent it from happening again, the real interesting one is the legal investigation into who pays how much to whom for the injuries and deaths that occurred. Planetwide. Unfortunately, it will not happen.

Greenfield: Biden Shut Down Trump Effort to Trace Coronavirus to Chinese Lab
Those involved in the previously undisclosed inquiry, which was launched last fall by allies of then-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, say it was an honest effort to probe what many initially dismissed: that China’s biological weapons program could have had a greater role in the pandemic’s origin in Wuhan, according to two additional sources. The decision to terminate the inquiry, which was run primarily out of the State Department’s arms control and verification bureau, was made after Biden officials were briefed on the team’s draft findings in February and March of this year, a State Department spokesperson said. Questions were raised about the legitimacy of the findings and the project was deemed to be an ineffective use of resources, explained a source familiar with the decision.
