Daily News Roundup

Estimated Reading Time: 6 minutes


I & I Editorial Board borrowed and slightly amended a Jeffersonian principle: The tree of liberty needs to be watered by a bloodless revolution of patriotic voters who will use their ballots to oust the tyrants that crave ruling over governing. That’s our road back to independence.

Dan Gelernter contributor to American Greatness: Our politicians, the media, and the unelected bureaucrats cry wolf over “domestic terrorism” without understanding that, in a real confrontation, theirs is the losing hand.


John Daniel Davidson contributor to The Federalist: It should be obvious by now that many, if not most, Republican leaders are worthless. It’s not just that they don’t seem to grasp what being a conservative means in the current moment, it’s that they have no interest in taking a stand against the ascendent forces of woke capitalism and an aggressive cultural left — even when they are presented with easy opportunities to do so.

Victor Davis Hanson contributor to American Greatness: Wokeness is classist and elitist. Those who made or inherited a fortune, got the right degree at the right place, made CEO or four-star rank, live in the right ZIP code, or know the good people, believe they have earned the right to decide what is moral for their inferiors.

Dennis Weisman contributor to The Federalist: So how can we reconcile the actions of large corporations in publicly denouncing the Georgia voting-reform legislation and the risk of alienating such a huge segment of present and potential customers? The answer lies in recognizing that collective action taken by corporations as an industry group can be sustainable even when such actions would not be sustainable if these companies were to act unilaterally.


Steve Feinstein contributor to American Thinker: The essential difference between the woke revolution and a legitimate revolution such as the American War for Independence is this: The Woke-ists are risking nothing. They have no skin in the game. Being woke is risk-free. It’s easy. Too easy.

Tremogile: National Archives Announces Donald Trump’s Tweets Will Be Made Publicly Available
“NARA intends to provide public access to all captured and preserved Presidential Record social media, including any blocked or deleted Tweets that have been transferred to us,” a National Archives spokesperson said in a statement Wednesday. Traditionally, NARA and Twitter have collaborated to maintain tweets from government officials posted on Twitter, but Trump’s account being banned by the social media platform has made it more difficult than normal, Fox News reported. Twitter is forbidding NARA to make any tweets from the @realDonaldTrump . . .

I & I Editorial Board: D.C. Statehood? How About A Declaration Of Independence From Washington Instead
America’s ruling class has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass and tax out their substance. It co-opted the military to gaslight the nation with the ultimate goal being the crushing of dissent. It has endeavored to foment civil war by enabling and encouraging racial division, riots, wokeness, and the relentless cancel culture. It has plundered . . . […] We’re not advocating secession, partition, or nullification. We’re simply reiterating what many already know: Washington has grown too big, too powerful, and too intrusive into private affairs. It has usurped the authority of the states, . . .

Barr: Leaked Google Memos Show Dire Need To Depoliticize The FTC
It is hardly a secret the Barack Obama White House had a cozy relationship with Google. Between 2009 to 2015, representatives and lobbyists for the company averaged one White House meeting a week. In what can only be described as a Google-Obama revolving door, nearly 250 individuals moved either from the government to Google or Google to the government during the Obama presidency. While politicization of executive branch agencies has become the norm for both major parties, the Obama administration’s tentacles of politicization appear to have reached even further, deep into the regulatory arena. Leaked documents recently obtained by Politico demonstrate the Obama White House’s tight relationship with the search engine giant may have even influenced the behavior of the Federal Trade Commission, one of the highest so-called independent regulatory enforcement and consumer protection agencies in the land. The memos reveal, for example, that despite having overwhelming data that the company operated as an unchecked monopoly, the FTC declined to pursue enforcement against Google in 2013.

Davidson: Republican Politicians Who Won’t Stand Up To The Left Are Worthless
. . . chemically castrating minors, whether or not a physician or the parents think it’s a good idea, is harmful and wrong. It should be against the law, like abortion. Parents should have no more right to castrate their kids than they do to kill them in utero. This isn’t complicated. So why is it so hard for someone like Hutchinson to grasp? Maybe it’s because he’s not really all that conservative. Or maybe it’s because he’s only conservative up to a point, on the easy stuff — pro-life bills and lower taxes and whatnot. Just don’t ask him to defy the cultural left and take a controversial stand for what’s right. That’s a bridge too far. After his debacle on Carlson’s show, Hutchinson told ABC News he doesn’t think conservatives should engage in these cultural and political battles. Okay, that’s fine. Every conservative in America now knows that Hutchinson is a worthless GOP leader.

Sundance: Stephen Miller Launches MAGA-Minded Legal Network to Counter Democrat Lawfare Group
This is long overdue, and worthy of support. Most CTH readers are now aware what the Lawfare group is all about. Inside the Lawfare network the far-left political ideologues organize and launch attacks against anything they view as adverse to their interests. The Lawfare network is made up of Obama ideologues and former DOJ officials who manipulate the legal system for their political agenda. Many, if not most, of the legal aspects connected to attacks against conservatives stem from inside this Lawfare network. They operate inside government and outside in the private sector and compliment each other in their unified agenda. An example was the attack against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by both groups. […] Today, former Senior Advisor Stephen Miller announces his launch of a Lawfare group of his own; a counter force against the conniving leftist objectives. Miller is calling his MAGA legal network “America First Legal”.

Bond: China Warns Of ‘Robust Chinese Response’ To Possible U.S. Boycott Of Olympics
China issued a warning to the United States on Wednesday not to boycott the Beijing Winter Olympics next year over human rights abuses and violations against ethnic minorities in Xinjiang. The move comes after the Biden administration recently said it was looking at a coordinated response among multiple countries to the violations in China.

Saavedra: Biden Caves To World’s Leading State Sponsor Of Terrorism: Prepared To Lift Sanctions On Iran
“We are prepared to take the steps necessary to return to compliance with the JCPOA, including by lifting sanctions that are inconsistent with the JCPOA,” State Department spokesman Ned Price told reporters. “I am not in a position here to give you chapter and verse on what those might be.” JCPOA, which stands for the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, was the name of the original deal. The news came as hundreds of Iranian-American activists urged Biden to not ease sanctions on Iran.

Sundance: Biden Administration Outlines Six Executive Actions They Will Initiate for Unilateral Gun Control Efforts Without Legislative Branch
The White House has released some details of the six executive actions the JoeBama team has put together for Joe Biden to sign. (1) The Justice Department, within 30 days, will issue a proposed rule to help stop the proliferation of “ghost guns.” We are experiencing a growing problem: criminals are buying kits containing nearly all of the components and directions for finishing a firearm within as little as 30 minutes and using these firearms to commit crimes. When these firearms turn up at crime scenes, they often cannot be traced by law enforcement due to the lack of a serial number. The Justice Department will issue a proposed rule to help stop the proliferation of these firearms. (2) . . .

VDH: Wealthy and Woke
Ed Bastian makes $17 million a year as chief executive officer of Delta Airlines, Georgia’s largest employer. Bastian just blasted Georgia’s new voting law. He thinks it is racist to require the same sort of ID to vote that Delta requires for its passengers to check-in. Yet most Americans believe voting is a more sacred act than flying Delta and, moreover, may have noticed that Delta has all sorts of partnerships with a systemically racist China. So polls show Americans approve of voter IDs. Bastian fears the woke mob more than the majority of Georgia residents who support the law. Apparently, his theory is that the greater numbers of average folks won’t threaten his multimillion-dollar perch as much as fewer but more powerful left-wing elites.

Blaze TV Staff: ‘Our children don’t stand a chance’: Glenn Beck EXPOSES how radical Marxism is infiltrating our kids’ schools
One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now. Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense. On next week’s Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it’s crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.
