NYU Prof in WashPost: Minority Trump Supporters Guilty of ‘Multiracial Whiteness’

Soon, in the dictionary you could see a rewritten definition of “white” as meaning “multiracial.” Why not? They’ve already redefined “racism” and added “white fragility” to suit the race-obsessed left. New York University Professor Cristina Beltrán brought the concept of “multiracial whiteness” as a pejorative to the Washington Post in an article that ironically appeared on the website the Friday afternoon of Martin Luther King, Jr. Weekend. “To understand Trump’s support, we must think in terms of multiracial Whiteness,” the professor lectured to a rapt audience of woke whites, aka WaPo opinion page readers. Though claiming, “The Trump administration’s anti-immigration, anti-civil rights stance has made it easy to classify the president’s loyalists as a homogenous mob of white nationalists,” Beltrán noted in looking at the crowd at the Capitol that “[a]mong the many White faces are a few that are clearly Latino or African American.” She extrapolated this to the “unsettling exit-poll data…that a quarter to a third of Latino voters voted to reelect Trump,” a lazy and false inference she made throughout the piece: going back and forth between talking about millions of Trump voters as a whole and the tiny number of violent individuals in the Capitol mob, as if they’re interchangeable and equally guilty. How does Beltrán reconcile the fact that some Trump voters and some of the participants in the Capitol riot were not white with her conviction that the evil of whiteness is what plagues our nation? Instead of the paradox giving her pause to think that maybe it has nothing to do with race, she tried to square the circle: “I call this phenomenon multiracial whiteness — the promise that they, too, can lay claim to the politics of aggression, exclusion and domination.” Seriously. “Multiracial whiteness.” This is the mind trap one falls into by following the rabbit hole of primitive, binary, all-or-nothing, radical social justice thinking: “Only white people are evil. X person of color did something evil. Therefore, they must actually be white.” In their rush to elevate the importance of race, SJWs manage to only emphasize its meaninglessness. Beltrán went on to explain the ridiculous oxymoron further: Rooted in America’s ugly history of white supremacy, indigenous dispossession and anti-blackness, multiracial whiteness is an ideology invested in the unequal distribution of land, wealth, power and privilege — a form of hierarchy in which the standing of one section of the population is premised on the debasement of others. Multiracial whiteness reflects an understanding of whiteness as a political color and not simply a racial identity — a discriminatory worldview in which feelings of freedom and belonging are produced through the persecution and dehumanization of others. Since none of these things have anything inherently to do with being white – Beltrán herself says it’s “a political color and not simply a racial identity” – maybe she should come up with a more accurate term that’s not racially inflammatory and intended to produce division. That would be the responsible thing to do. Instead, she continued the hatred and vitriol, tying the entire “MAGA movement” to “unbridled rage and conspiracy theories” and giving a false moral equivalence to wanting a border policy and supporting QAnon, as if both are equally abhorrent and a part of “multiracial whiteness.” Basically, “multiracial whiteness” is a nonsense catchall phrase that encompasses anything and everything that is bad from the leftist point of view, with the added bonus of placing emphasized blame and guilt on white people. Of course, the only people this obsessed with dividing people up by color and ascribing particular inferior attributes to race are racists themselves. This is a sick, destructive way of thinking about the world that is not only morally wrong, but also factually wrong. The current political crisis our country is in is complicated and there are no simple solutions. It’s not helpful for race hustlers to jump in and enflame passions in even worse directions. Shame on the Washington Post for letting Beltrán peddle her racist hatred under their banner. “Democracy Dies in Darkness,” indeed.

OUTRAGEOUS: The FBI Is Renting Billboards Around the Country To Pervert Reality and Promote Democrat Lies that President Trump and His Supporters Are Violent

FBI Billboards are everywhere.  The corrupt FBI is advertising across the nation on billboards requesting information on individuals who attended the Capitol protests on January 6th.   By doing so they promote the lie that Trump and his supporters are violent.

The FBI is so corrupt now it really needs to be shut down and rebuilt from the bottom up.  The individuals leading this agency are not honest and often participate in criminal acts themselves (see Mueller Russia Collusion sham).  So it is no surprise that this corrupt agency is advertising on billboards across the country insinuating the Capital protests a few weeks ago the most egregious act since 9-11.  They do this by advertising the event.  Something we have never seen before from this corrupt agency.

The above billboard was in Florida.  Others have been reported across the country. Syracuse. com reports:

The FBI has put up a billboard on Interstate 690 near Syracuse as part of a national campaign to identify those involved in the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol.

The billboard, which went up Friday near the interchange of I-690 and the New York State Thruway in the town of Geddes, asks passing motorists to call or leave an online tip identifying people who participated in the insurrection that resulted in five deaths.

What the above report does not tell you is that one policeman who is included in the death count at the Capitol died the next day of natural causes.  The remaining individuals were innocent Trump supporters who we still don’t have much information on how they died. One Trump supporter was shot dead by a Capitol policeman whose name has remained hidden.  This is believed to be because of his suspected prior allegiances to BLM.

OUTRAGEOUS: After Ten Days We Still Know Very Little about the Deaths of Four Trump Supporters at US Capitol – Why Is That?

Instead of investigating how the individuals died during the event, of why the Mayor of DC didn’t call for more help ahead of time, the FBI is producing billboards sharing Democrat talking points that Trump and his supporters are violent.  This is despite ample evidence that the violent actions on January 6th in DC were committed by Antifa goons who inserted themselves in the event.

The FBI will never report this.  They to date haven’t investigated much related to BLM or Antifa for the billions in losses and multiple deaths in 2020 related to their riots.

The FBI is a broken agency and it shows when it resorts to advertising lies insinuating President Trump and his followers are violent while Hillary, BLM and Antifa are given a pass.

The post OUTRAGEOUS: The FBI Is Renting Billboards Around the Country To Pervert Reality and Promote Democrat Lies that President Trump and His Supporters Are Violent appeared first on The Gateway Pundit.

News Briefs – 01/20/2021

Here are some news stories that might be of interest. Most articles will be more or less summarized in the headline. You can skim the headlines and summaries, and click the links if they are of interest. Keep in mind, many of these reports are products of the Fake News, so although they will be what people are hearing and talking about, there is no guarantee any one of them is necessarily correct, and we have had cases of outright lies make it onto these pages, especially about President Trump.

No Q. You can see Q’s posts aggregated live, and new ones which may have gone live after our print deadline at http://www.qanon.pub

__________________________________________

8Kun was more revolting than I have ever seen it. It was filled with cartoon trannies and porn, CGI trannies with bizarrely large genitalia, Cartel gore photos of dismembered and disemboweled  bodies with the skinned pieces arranged for the camera, massive bedsores that eroded buttox muscles to the bone, autopsy photos of heads that had died by shotgun suicide, gay guys stretching their anuses with their hands beyond anything imaginable, genital ulcers that eroded almost everything away, and on and on. As one poster noted, Gore Shills like that usually precede something big happening.

Also worth noting. For two days now OAN has included a statement on their news programs, read by the anchor, that Conservatives should not, under any circumstances, go out on Inauguration Day and protest, either in DC, or at their state Capitol. It was a very specific, ominous message, which felt as if it had been given to them by the White House, or they are on the inside of the network, and know a big secret we normies are not privy to. It was a very specific instruction, that felt as if it was based on very specific facts. No idea if there is a false flag in the works, or they don’t want us in the way during round-ups, or what it might be. But it clearly felt like more than just reasoned guesses or logical extrapolations behind it.

Pompeo tweets the painting of Washington crossing the Delaware. Q had posted that at one point.

Lin wood posted about Washington crossing the Delaware.

And interesting examination of a Q post, by an account believed to be Gen McInerney.

Vox Day covers Lin Wood accusing Roberts, Clinton, and Pence. Basically he has video of a whistleblower claiming a false flag was being set up by FBI under Obama, designed to take out some conservative Supreme Court Justices, and Roberts was supplying scheduling info, so it could be timed to get the Conservative Justices they wanted to take out. Scalia found out and reported it, and that was why he was killed. Some of the video is here.

Joe Biden will fly to Washington today on a private aircraft, yet another remarkable change in protocol on the eve of his inauguration. No immediate word on why he wasn’t offered – or isn’t flying – on a US government plane, which is standard for a president-elect.

Stephen Miller writes a farewell note to colleagues, and ends it by saying, “I have no doubt we will very soon be fighting side by side again together once more.”

Cernovich Tweeted this at Barnes Law (text at the link on the image):

None of these people seem to understand. The left’s business model does not work the way you think, and we cannot replicate it. They don’t have publishing businesses. They have propaganda operations funded by what those propaganda operations allow them to steal from governments and other sources, like medical overbilling, investment frauds, and so on. Somebody on OAN just said the Lincoln project took in $150 million this year. What product do they produce? How much of it do they turn out? Who is buying it? What is their business model? Because it it is the same business model as publishing companies, news operations, political magazines, social media companies, and so on. The right cannot monetize what they do like the left, because to do that they would have to set up a mafia-like operation, with a network of grifters, swindlers, and government fraudsters all pilfering everything from the treasury to non-negotiable expenses like medical expenses, infrastructure contracts, and so on, taking a cut, and sending the rest to a central organization funding their propaganda. You realize this when you get in the game. People act like if I marketed this blog differently, it would make money. But why? Vox Day has as good material if not better, and it is free. So do a ton of other sites. Matt Forney had ridiculous traffic off Ferdinand Bardamu, and everyone loved it, but he could not monetize it, and he was a brilliant guy in terms of internet operations. And books? They will cover hosting and other assorted expenses, maybe if you are lucky. But most people do not have the time to really devote to them, and they don’t buy them. Nobody would buy CNN, if it weren’t welded to regular cable service, and even then the ad revenue is just laundered Cabal funding. National Review is a perennially a money loser to the publisher, but they keep pumping in the cash, and Jonah Goldberg probably still brings in a seven figure salary. His control of the dialog is valuable – to the fraudsters. And all of that fails to consider that if you form a successful platform with traffic, it will be a threat to the fraud network, and for that reason the fraud network will devote just as much money as it would have given you, to destroying you. Imagine armies of bots all hitting your site with so much traffic you can’t afford the bandwidth. Remember 8Chan? And that’s if you are lucky and the government machinery doesn’t start coming after you for anything from DMCA infringements to poisoning your food supply.

One other criticism while we are on Cernovich (text at the link):

It is a weak analysis of the situation, as it does not explain why Q-materials were banned for sale, and Q social accounts are being deplatformed. Why not feed the flames, if it is a Cabal psyop that disorients their enemy (us), and keeps us from seeing reality as it is so we can adapt to it effectively? One explanation which would plausibly explain both conditions, is that if Q were identified, it would lend credence to it, such as if it were Admiral Mike Rogers, or a clique of similar people. The reason it was shut down wherever they could was because the information was redpilling normies that there is a conspiracy. Cernovich is a smart guy, and bigger than me in the game, so I have no doubt the coverage on him would be stifling. And yet he never complains.

I do not know what Q is. I suspect it is a legit insider who was part of a counter-conspiracy to the Cabal. I believe we will see something interesting today. They knew the fraud was coming. Shutting it down would have been as easy as simply triggering an internet crash for the night. Trump had the intelligence infrastructure to interdict the fraud. I would be shocked if servers were installed in a DOD facility, and NSA had no idea they were there. I would be shocked if the fate of the US were left to chance, and Trump’s forces had no idea the system was set up so the Cabal could not lose, because they would always simply adjust the totals on the fly. I have to think this wasn’t unforseen, and was probably part of the plan.

If not, I will suspect Trump and Q’s counter-conspiracy was beaten, at least in this round, and the US will have a rough four years. But I can’t believe our national security apparatus will let a conspiracy which doubled the number of cop-killings last year, and which is owned in part by China, take the most powerful office in our land through a clearly fraudulent election. I also do not buy that somebody like Mike Lindell, or Rudy, or Patrick Byrne, or Gen Flynn could walk into the Oval, show Trump hard evidence of the fraud, and Trump would then slow-walk it, and appear ambivalent as he hands it off to other people to look at. I only see Trump doing that if there is already plan, and his objective is to not rock the boat too much until it fires off. But we will see today.

Cerno also criticizes Trump for not pardoning Assange, however it is worth noting, CDAN said Assange and Soros are actually quite close friends, and Soros has actually hired Pamala Anderson to serve as a paramour/probable-courier to Assange. Here is a thought experiment for you to think about, which might speak to what is up with Assange. Imagine you have something which interests you like video games. So you set up a Wiki and get familiar with the software. You decide to create a Wiki for classified intelligence leaks, and try to design it to really screw over anyone in power, from CIA to Cabal. You announce a press conference and send out the press releases. Do you think anyone would show up for you? Would any mainstream media ever devote prime time coverage to your tale? Would you get a movie, with Benedict Cumberbatch playing you? Those are things not portioned out to just anyone. You need machine approval to get those things. So Assange probably had it.

Supposedly, Tucker claimed Mitch McConnell “sent word over to the White House: if you pardon Julian Assange, we are much more likely to convict you in an impeachment trial.” No idea what that means. It could have been an attempt to convince Trump to do it because McConnell opposed it.

Some Texas school districts don’t want to show Biden’s inauguration live to students due to unpredictability. 26,000 troops, and we have no idea what will happen?

In California, Inauguration Day footage is restricted, and can not be shown live due to threats of violence, however a vetted video will be made available that can be shown after the fact. Also they are told not to respond by shouting to any emergency announcement. Now I am wondering if Cabal’s going to skullcap Biden on live TV, and these memos are being put out by Cabal assets who know.

Vox Day notices, the Turner Classic Movies schedule for January 20th begins with a whole bunch of movies whose titles contain the name “Joe,” and then finishes with a bunch of movies which feature “murder.” Very weird time.

Former CIA Officer Larry Johnson says the CIA is the new KGB, and is corrupt from the very top. And according to Patrick Byrne they are operating domestically, and can take over the FBI at will. Byrne has gone silent, and I have wondered if he is on a boat trying to get to some secluded harbor where nobody can find him.

MyPillow is ‘unavailable’ on Macy’s site as more retailers sever ties with CEO. Kohls and Bed, Bath & Beyond have also dropped his product lines. He’s fighting the good fight for the country.

Mike Lindell responds to a letter from a Dominion lawyer, saying, “I want Dominion to put up their lawsuit because we have 100% evidence that China and other countries used their machines to steal the election.”

Michael Yon says, “90% chance that before 2021 closes out, United States will be in obvious civil war. “

Michael Yon says, “Chances of dramatic events or violence on 20 January: 90%.”

Michael Yon says, “Washington, D.C.: miles of barriers suddenly constructed. Have you noticed that many of these areas appear designed to cage people in rather than keep them out? Do not come here. Feels like a trap.”

In the Don Lemon sex assault case, Lemon’s lawyers, in an effort to attack the victim, publicly disclosed a private file-sharing link. Confidential and sensitive information on the victim was “immediately breached by the general public.”

Crowd of Pizzagate researchers gathers outside of Comet Pizza. The restaurant is responding by blasting Lady Gaga.

Ezra Cohen Watnick says he is not associated with Q-anon, and does not want to be tied to it publicly. Seems he could have come out like this a year ago. I would interpret that as him either having an order to not disavow it, or a perception the administration didn’t want him to disavow it. Interesting given everything he was dealing with, including people photographing his home and posting it online, hacking his emails and setting up meetings with guys like Bill Binney, and otherwise impersonating him on online platforms.

In the first Trump declassified Russia document, Christopher Steele told the FBI he leaked the Russia collusion story to help Clinton and Great Britain.

Supposedly someone took a photo of a Minuteman missile silo loader deployed in Kentucky for some reason. Don’t know the significance. Might be nothing, or might mean if Biden’s ascension is going to be thwarted, we are going to have a much more hostile relationship with China, and they are doing something with the ICBM arsenal. Gen McInerney said the opinion in national security circles was China has attacked us chemically with Fentanyl, biologically with COVID, and they they tried to fix our election to install an asset as our President. That could get hairy.

12 National Guard members removed from Biden inauguration duties. Some for “inappropriate comments or texts.”

After he’s sworn in today, Joe Biden intends to take 17 executive actions aimed at addressing coronavirus and undoing some of President Trump’s signature policies.

CIA Director Gina Haspel announces resignation. Feels significant but until we see what is going to happen tomorrow, no way to know how.

Police and Black Lives Matter protesters clashed outside City Hall Park on Monday night, resulting in dozens of arrests and 11 injured officers, authorities said. What is amazing is, this isn’t a random group of rowdy civilians, it is a competing power structure, supported by the same command which runs our politicians.

DOJ drops insider trading investigation into Sen. Richard Burr. If nothing happens tomorrow, it will be just like it was before, only now they won’t even bother to hide it because it has been exposed, and nothing happened. They will probably enjoy showing it off, and see increased recruitment as scumbags gravitate to their circles trying to get a little bit of that corruption for themselves.

A severely compromised Senator Mark Warner is about to become Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

The Flynn/Kislyak leak investigation has been closed with no charges filed – someone who leaked it to hurt Flynn got away with a felony.

Transgender community hails nomination of Dr. Rachel Levine to Biden administration. It really is to the point they are just trying to demoralize everyone now. This fuck stuck all the COVID patients in the nursing homes, but got mom out at the last minute. Total incompetence, stuck in that position just to fuck with us.

An ‘Occupy Wall Street’ leftist turned Trump supporter was arrested this morning for his crazed online rants about killing members of congress.

An Antifa mob tried to stop police from responding to an armed man threatening to harm others and himself in downtown Portland on Friday afternoon.  One of the things Chavez supposedly did was delegitimize the Police, and transfer power to armed gangs loyal to him in neighborhoods.

Laura Loomer says, “While I have NEVER been convicted of a felony, domestic violence, and I’ve never been adjudicated mentally unfit by a judge, my name was placed in the Federal National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) and I have been prohibited from ever owning or even touching a firearm.” You would see a lot more of this under Biden, if he were allowed in. This is the end stage transformation from Republic to Banana Republic.

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse urges IRS to target Turning Point USA’s tax-exempt status.

Veterans denied COVID-19 vaccine for making too much money.

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo on Tuesday unveiled a state budget plan that calls for big spending, but only if Biden sends New York $15 billion in Federal funding.

Mega millions is at $970 million. Just like our elections, it is a safe bet it is rigged.

President Donald Trump will not invite President-elect Joe Biden to the White House ahead of the inauguration Wednesday, according to reports.

Supposedly the Chinavirus has killed 400,000. Given the Infection Fatality rate is estimated at .23%, that means 174 million have already caught it. That is roughly 53% of the population, which is very close to the 60-70% needed for herd immunity. Of course all these numbers are bullshit, but then again so is the virus.

Column: Beware Those Hysterical Historians

Liberals love to insist they’re on the “right side of history,” and their confidence crests in the liberal dominance among academic historians. Just as the liberal media dominate our evaluation of day-to-day developments, liberals count on their historians to dominate our evaluation of the decades behind us. It’s not just historians, but our taxpayer-funded storytellers, like the insufferable PBS documentarian Ken Burns. On the day before Biden’s inauguration, NPR’s Morning Edition presented him like an American treasure with no partisan bias. So skip over his Ted Kennedy propaganda film for the 2008 Democratic convention, described by Politico as portraying him as “the modern Ulysses bringing his party home to port." It’s pretty audacious to use steering metaphors for Teddy. Don’t notice Burns just donated $2,800 this year to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and the same amount to Sara Gideon, seeking to unseat Sen. Susan Collins, or his routine $5,000 donations to the Democratic Party of New Hampshire, where he resides. Burns lauded the optimism of Franklin Roosevelt, and then took FDR’s inspirational mantle and spread it on Joe Biden. He has “been defined by loss and suffering, but [with] the positive power to say: What are you going to do? You can't curl up in a ball... So let's put one foot in front of the other and we'll see what we can do. This was part of FDR's essential greatness, and that optimism is at the heart of it. You can hear echoes of it in Joe Biden.” On the same morning, The Washington Post put a historian roundup on the front page under the headline “Not only Trump will face the judgment of history: America’s commitment to democracy also to be scrutinized, scholars say.” Post reporter David Nakamura rounded up the usual liberal and leftist suspects for a partisan “scholar”  roundup: 1. Douglas Brinkley, a staff historian for CNN and the John Kerry campaign’s unofficial staff historian in 2004 with his G.I. Joe hagiography Tour of Duty. Brinkley ranks Trump near the bottom of presidents who “harmed the country.” 2. Matthew Dallek, a “political historian at George Washington University,” who is political enough to suggest that all 74 million Trump voters cast doubt on the health of our democracy. Voting Republican proves our democracy is "incredibly fragile.” Democracy equals Democratic victory. 3. Joseph Crespino, a history professor at Emory University, who donated $500 in 2018 to liberal Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), worried that documentation of Trump’s decision-making process may be difficult because “He’s not a reader or a note-taker or a memo writer.” Trump doesn’t read. That’s a little exaggerated, no? But it’s standard Washington Post analysis. 4. Nicole Hemmer, a “historian who specializes in conservative media and is working on the Obama Presidency Oral History [project] at Columbia University.” Hemmer’s a favorite of Brian Stelter on CNN. She says Trump and his movement show “we can understand that throughout American history there has been racism and fascism and anti-democratic forces and say he is drawing from those powerful influences.” 5. Ruth Ben-Ghiat, a “New York University historian who studies fascism,” repeats that Trump is “best understood in comparison to authoritarian-leaning figures abroad.” 6. Leah Wright Rigueur, "associate professor of American history at Brandeis University," says Trump’s been a case study in the “naked, unadulterated pursuit of power and self-interest, at the cost of 400,000 lives and at the cost of the American union.” In short, the Post assembles history like the Democratic National Committee would. There is no dissent. There is only one view of history that is “factual,” and it lines up neatly, like a Ken Burns propaganda film for PBS.

Joe Biden’s villainous pick for Assistant Secretary of HHS

(Paul Mirengoff)

Rachel Levine is Joe Biden’s selection for Assistant Secretary of HHS. She will be the first transgender nominee to a Senate-confirmed position (or maybe just the first known one). I don’t care. Do you?

What I care about is Levine’s record as Pennsylvania’s Health Secretary. It is sickening, as Ed Morrissey shows:

While Levine ran the Pennsylvania health department, she followed the example of Andrew Cuomo in ordering nursing homes to readmit residents who tested positive for COVID-19. Levine then made sure to get her own mother out of the nursing home to avoid the consequences of that decision.

(Emphasis added)

Good call for mama. Bad call for public health. Six of the 10 long-term care facilities with the most coronavirus deaths nationwide are in Pennsylvania.

Even Democratic politicians in Pennsylvania have acknowledged the folly of ordering nursing homes to accept recovering coronavirus patients.. And, of course, Levine recognized it when she pulled her mother from one of them.

Levine’s scandalous behavior was widely reported at the time. Team Biden must have known about it. Nonetheless, it tabbed her for a top health job.

Ed thinks Levine’s nomination might have been the result of a breakdown in the vetting process. Alternatively, he suggests that maybe identity politics trumped the obvious problem of Levine’s coronavirus double standard. I’m inclined to go with that explanation, but who knows?

Will Senate Democrats balk at the nomination who put tens of thousands of people at risk of dying in nursing homes and then pulled her mother out of the death trap she (Levine) had imposed? Maybe, but I’m not counting on it. Senate Dems are no less enthralled by identity politics than Biden’s team.

I suspect that Levine would have to be an ax murderer before they would reject the first transgender nominee blah, blah, blah.

CBO Estimates Biden Plan To Raise Minimum Wage To $15 Could Kill Almost 4 Million Jobs

Hundreds of thousands of businesses across the country are teetering on the brink of destruction because of the lock downs associated with the coronavirus pandemic.

What does Joe Biden want to do? Make it harder for them to stay in business. The last thing these business owners need is an increase in the minimum wage.

The Congressional Budget Office says this would kill jobs. Millions of them.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Biden’s proposal to raise minimum wage to $15 could kill up to 3.7M jobs, CBO estimates

President-elect Joe Biden’s proposal to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour could kill up to 3.7 million jobs, the Congressional Budget Office estimated.

The CBO said that some of the higher earnings from the $15 federal minimum wage could be offset by higher rates of joblessness.

The report found that 1.3 million workers who would typically be employed would be without jobs in an average week in 2025. A new federal minimum wage would also increase the pay of 17 million workers in an average week in 2025.

The increase in earnings would mostly affect low-income families, while a loss of business would affect higher-income families.

Families below the poverty line would receive an additional $8 billion in real income in 2025, while families above the poverty line would lose $16 billion in real income.

How many times do we have to explain to Democrats what a $15 an hour minimum wage really looks like?

To everyone that wants the minimum wage to go up to $15 a hour this is what it will look like 😆pic.twitter.com/lGJnYZ0Fm7

Proud all-Basque team wins Spanish Cup

(Paul Mirengoff)

On Sunday, Athletic Club Bilbao won the Spanish Super Cup. It accomplished this by defeating the two powerhouses of Spanish football — Real Madrid in the semifinal and Barcelona in the final.

In the final, Athletic Bilbao trailed 2-1 but leveled the match in the 89th minute. It went on to score a 3-2 victory in extra time.

Athletic Bilbao is a special team. Most European clubs are full of foreigners. In Sunday’s match between Liverpool and Manchester United, only eight of the starting 22 were British. Bilbao not only excludes non-Spanish players, it excludes anyone not born or raised in Basque country.

Imagine an American sports team that limited its players to one region. It would be maligned as chauvinist, possibly sued for discrimination, and probably criticized by its own fans. But in Spain, where separatism is a major issue, the Spanish government and the EU wisely leave well enough alone.

How does Athletic Bilbao fare? Quite well. It is one of the most successful teams in the history of Spanish football, having won the championship eight times. In recent years, the team hasn’t come close to breaking the Real Madrid-Barcelona stranglehold on the championship, but neither has any other Spanish club apart from Atletico Madrid.

Nowadays, Athletic usually finishes in the top half of the table and this year’s victory in the Super Cup was the club’s second in the past seven years. In addition, it made the round of 16 of the Europa League in 2018. Plenty of big European clubs can’t match that record of accomplishments. Everton is one of them.

Observers say Athletic Bilbao makes up in cohesion and spirit what it lacks in diversity. But that’s not to say that Athletic lacks racial diversity. The star man in the final against Barcelona, and one of the club’s top players, is Inaki Williams, a Black. He was born in Bilbao and raised in Pamplona to Ghanaian parents who crossed the desert on foot on their way to Spain.

I think it’s awesome that an old school club that true to its roots and principles enjoys success in the mercenary world of contemporary European soccer.

Lost In the Fun House

(John Hinderaker)

That describes Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi, who in a podcast yesterday speculated that Vladimir Putin was behind the intrusion in the Capitol two weeks ago:

Pelosi appeared on a special episode of Clinton’s podcast, “You and Me Both,” on Monday to discuss the Capitol riot and the incoming Biden administration. During the roughly 30-minute conversation, Clinton and Pelosi floated a conspiracy theory that Putin was the mastermind behind the riot and that Trump is a Russian puppet.

Clinton began: “I hope historically we will find out who [Trump is] beholden to, who pulls his strings. I would love to see his phone records to see whether he was talking to Putin the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol. But we now know that not just him, but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy.”

Hillary is deep into mental health territory here. Needless to say, there is zero evidence that Putin or any other foreign leader had anything to do with the breakdown in security at the Capitol. Hillary has skulked through the last four years, muttering conspiracy theories about President Trump and refusing to accept the legitimacy of his election. It is particularly rich that she is still trying to play the Russian card, given that it was she herself who bought and paid for the fake Russian dossier, and she knows full well that it was a fraud. Her fraud.

This, too, from the woman who presented the Putin regime with a “reset” button early in the Obama administration. Nancy Pelosi was on board with Clinton’s bizarre theory:

“I do,” Pelosi responded. “To your point of who is he beholden to, as I’ve said over and over, as I said to him in that picture with my blue suit as I was leaving, what I was saying to him as I was pointing, rudely, at him: ‘With you, Mr. President, all roads lead to Putin.’ I don’t know what Putin has on him politically, financially, or personally, but what happened last week was a gift to Putin, because Putin wants to undermine democracy in our country and throughout the world.”

Actually, I would say that the events of July 6 were a gift to the Democratic Party, but I still wouldn’t assert that they were orchestrated by Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi.

Pelosi went on to suggest that members of Congress gave tours to rioters ahead of time, to acquaint them with the Capitol’s layout, and that such members should be criminally prosecuted. This is just one more in a long series of incidents demonstrating that the leaders of the Democratic Party are living in cuckoo land.

Mission Accomplished? Here Were Jim Acosta’s 15 Worst Moments as WH Correspondent

On Tuesday, CNN’s Jim Acosta spent his final day as chief White House correspondent reveling in having accomplished his life’s mission of celebrating himself and playing the role of general in helping to removing President Trump from office, a man he’s so deeply hated. As Acosta and CNN shared on January 11, he’ll leave the White House beat to become a weekend anchor (presumably of CNN Newsroom) and take on the title of “chief domestic correspondent.” Acosta was in a jovial mood, tweeting this caption alongside a selfie with NBC’s Peter Alexander: “Just a couple of guys covering the WH on the last full day of Trump admin. Think we will finally have time for that drink now @PeterAlexander?” In another tweet, Acosta insinuated symbolism in the departure of the Orange Man: “Light rising from the National Mall behind the Trump WH where a final ‘lid’ for this president has been called.” NewsBusters combed through our archives to find the 15 worst Acosta moments over the past four years. Trust us, this wasn’t easy and more than a few were left on the cutting room floor. But here there are, presented in chronological order.   1. January 11, 2017— Donald Trump Blasts ‘Fake News’ CNN, Spars With Reporter Arguably, this started it all. In a transition press conference, Acosta brought proceedings to a halt after Trump called out CNN and BuzzFeed for having reported and (in the case of the latter) leaked the dubious Steele dossier to help kickstart the years-long campaign to assert Trump was an illegitimate President.     When Acosta continued to interrupt another reporter trying to ask a question, Trump repeatedly told him to be “quiet” before concluding: “Don’t be rude. No, I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news.”   2. April 12, 2017— CNN’s Acosta Rules It’s Un-American to Slam CNN, News Media; Doesn’t Regret Screaming at Trump Only about three months into the administration, Acosta and his colleagues were behaving as if they had stormed the beaches of Normandy and defeated the Confederacy at Gettysburg.  Appearing at the Newseum with three other liberal White House reporters (plus Breitbart’s Charlie Spiering and Fox News’s Bret Baier), Acosta insisted he believed in “speaking truth to power...and I think that’s what we at CNN and I think my colleagues here try to do every day.” Acosta also claimed during this event that criticizing the news media and doing things like changing “CNN sucks” were un-American and doing “real damage” to the country.   3. June 19, 2017— Acosta Loses It Over No Audio, No Video WH Briefing; ‘Don't Know What World We're Living In’ For a short stretch in 2017, then-WH Press Secretary Sean Spicer turned the cameras off during briefings and, predictably, showboating hacks like Acosta were enraged. Acosta unleashed after one such briefing to Brooke Baldwin: “It's bizarre, I don't know what world we're living in right now, Brooke, where we're standing at the White House....and they won't answer these questions on camera, or let us record the audio.”   4. August 2, 2017 — The White House's Stephen Miller Destroys CNN: ‘Cosmopolitan,’ ‘Outrageous,’ ‘Ignorant,’ ‘Biased’ Acosta arrived at this White House press briefing armed with the poem inscribed on the Statue of Liberty, as if it were the Constitution, to denounce the Trump administration’s immigration policies. Thinking he had the administration trapped, senior adviser Stephen Miller scorched Acosta for having “reveal[ed] your cosmopolitan bias to a shocking degree.”    5. January 17, 2018 — Acosta Claims It Will Take ‘Dead Journalists on the Highway’ to Shake Off Trump ‘Spell’ Acosta found himself back at the Newseum for another event to paint himself as Captain America, warning that rhetoric attacking the media would lead to “a dead journalist on the side of the highway” and President Trump would be to blame. Only then, he added, could the “consciousness” of Americans be sufficiently “shake[n]...to sort of snap them out of this” because so many “are under a spell where they think it’s okay to go after us like this, and they’re going to have to get it shocked out of their system.”   6. August 1, 2018 — Acosta: ‘We Weren’t In America Anymore’ With Trump Supporters Back when S.E. Cupp wasn’t a glorified Democrat and Zuckerbot, she had an HLN show that didn’t treat conservatives, Republicans, libertarians, and any non-lefty as enemies.     But during this particular episode, Acosta showed a visceral hatred when he insisted that, whenever he was around Trump supporters at a rally, “we weren’t in America anymore.”   7. January 10, 2019 — Oopsie! CNN's Jim Acosta Inadvertently Makes Strong Case for a Border Wall In one of the greatest self-owns of all time, Acosta reported from the U.S./Mexico border alongside a portion of the President’s border wall and claimed that, because he didn’t see any unrest or anyone trying to cross the border, walls don’t work. Yes, Jim. Since there’s nothing going on either side of steel slats, we shouldn’t have fortified borders.   8. March 19, 2019 — MELTDOWN! Acosta: Trump Is Spreading ‘Virus’ Against the Media, Right Has Bigger Media Presence Following a Rose Garden press conference, Acosta rushed to Baldwin so he could kvetch and moan about how difficult his life was and that someone (let alone the President) would dare criticize the news business. “[T]his is something that we've seen since President Trump came into office, called this network fake news, has referring to the press as the enemy of the people and so on is that this is a virus that is spreading around the world,” he bemoaned. During this same meltdown, Acosta falsely claimed that the right has a bigger media presence than the left. Really.   9. June 11, 2019 — Acosta Releases a Narcissistic Book of Hogwash, Complains About Losing John Roberts as a Friend What an oppressed man Acosta has been. His life was so terrible and one of imprisonment that he was allowed to release a 354-page book entitled The Enemy of the People: A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America. From claiming his “sacrifice” for America would be worth it to likening Spicer to a Chinese government spokesman to saying showboating was what a healthy America looks like to whining that another reporter disliked his shtick, Acosta reminded everyone that, when it comes to Jim, there’s only one person who matters: himself.   10. March 11, 2020 — Acosta Declares Trump’s Coronavirus Address Was ‘Smacking of Xenophobia’     Acosta was livid after President Trump announced he would be suspending travel to Europe (after he had done so weeks earlier with China) due to the coronavirus pandemic, telling Fredo Cuomo that these decisions and calling the coronavirus a “foreign virus” originating from China would “come across to a lot of Americans as smacking of xenophobia.”   11. April 10, 2020 — ‘This Is the Real Deal’; Watch Trump Torpedo Jim Acosta for Trashing ‘Happy Talk Briefings’ Coronavirus Task Force briefings served as yet another chance for liberal reporters to bolster their cartoonish image as American heroes and Acosta made sure to play a starring role. On Good Friday, Acosta trashed Trump for daring to speak in positive tones and express hope for America’s future.  In part, Trump replied: “This is not happy talk. Maybe it's happy talk to you, not happy talk to me, talking about death....There’s nothing happy about it, Jim. This is sad talk. This is saddest — these are the saddest — these are the saddest news conferences that I've ever had....This is the real deal and I've got to make the biggest decision of my life.”   12. April 18, 2020 — Acosta, Blitzer TRASH Americans Weary of Lockdowns, Cover for Lefties on PPP There was perhaps no news outlet more committed to indefinite lockdowns and showing little to no concern for the economic and psychological fallout than CNN. Following this particular day’s briefing, Acosta partnered with Situation Room host Wolf Blitzer to trash anyone and everyone who protested the lockdowns.   13. June 17, 2020 — McEnany Tells Off Jim Acosta, Lefty Journalists on Social Distancing Double Standard Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany routinely schooled the liberal White House press corps, showing that no one was going to step on her and, with a massive binder of research and talking points, deftly took on an army of loons.     June 17 marked perhaps her strongest (and most hysterical) takedown as she told Acosta “work on your internal cohesion” after Acosta griped about Trump rallying supporters amid the pandemic.   14. June 19, 2020 — Kayleigh McEnany Owns Jim Acosta (Again), Cites ‘Extraordinary’ NewsBusters Video Two days after Acosta was owned by McEnany for lacking “internal cohesion,” Acosta returned for more and centered his tantrum around President Trump tweeting a Carpe Donktum video that was a parody of two children (one white, one African-American) hugging. Acosta blasted McEnany for Trump sharing the video as it replaced with the children running away from each other accompanied by a CNN chyron that read “Terrified toddler runs away from racist baby.” McEnany was ready, firing back by calling out CNN’s years of disinformation, including how they had to settle with Kentucky teen Nicholas Sandmann.   15. January 8, 2021 — CNN Parties Over Twitter’s ‘Amazing’ Choice to Ban Trump: He’s ‘Been Kneecapped!’ Acosta’s final entry came 12 days ago when Twitter permanently banned the President and, despite the fact that snarky takes on his tweets would no longer provide hits of dopamine, he joined fellow lefties in celebrating the news. Speaking to Blitzer, Acosta bragged: “So, the President has been kneecapped by Twitter. He can no longer use this account to do all of the various and sundry things that he does on a regular basis. He is, for all intents and purposes, banned at the moment from this very powerful social media platform.”

Four Ways Biden Can Boost the Global Economy

The US is nowhere near as economically dominant as it was even a decade ago. Yet President-elect Joe Biden can take several relatively simple steps that would have far-reaching benefits for the US economy, the American people, and the rest of the world.

On Frauds and Fights

Editor’s note: This piece ran as the editorial in TAC‘s January/February 2021 issue, which went to press in mid-December. As we prepare for a transition of power today, we present it here. For full access to the print magazine, become a member of TAC here.

The period of dictatorial rule known to Indians as “the Emergency,” when Indira Gandhi suspended the constitution and ruled by decree from 1975 to 1977, began with an election fraud case. A political gadfly named Raj Narain had lost to Mrs. Gandhi in her last parliamentary election by 100,000 votes. He sued to overturn the result, alleging bribery and other misconduct. Four and a half years later, a judge ruled in his favor, vacating Mrs. Gandhi’s election victory and throwing the country into a constitutional crisis.

That’s what we think of when people say that the fight over the 2020 election will be safely over by inauguration day.

This edition of TAC goes to press hours before the Supreme Court’s deadline for Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin to respond to the suit filed by Texas seeking to invalidate their election results. Whether the high court will consider the Texas lawsuit any further after those states respond is unclear.

President Trump and his lawyers should continue to fight until the minute the Supreme Court brings the curtain down, for two reasons. First, because their voters deserve their day in court. Second, because it will underline the importance of making sure no election as dubious as this one ever happens again. The massive expansion of mail-in ballots was an experiment that should never be repeated. Republicans should go after those and other easily hackable voting methods in the new year.

Donald Trump is not the first larger-than-life tycoon to contest an election defeat by alleging fraud. William Randolph Hearst kept the New York courts tied up in litigation for three years after he lost the 1905 mayoral race to George McClellan Jr., son of the Union general. Considering that his opponent was Tammany Hall’s candidate, Hearst may have had a point.

Irregularities abounded. Tammany wards held back their returns until other precincts’ totals were reported. Over 8,000 Hearst votes were thrown out as spoiled due to extraneous markings. A box of uncounted ballots was discovered in the back of a barbershop. All in all, there were more than enough red flags for the state supreme court to order a recount.

Two days into it, with Hearst picking up votes and 700 boxes of ballots left to recount, the court of appeals ordered the process halted on a legal technicality. It was never resumed. McClellan was sworn in as mayor three weeks later.

Hearst probably did have that mayoral election stolen from him. If it’s any consolation, 100 years later, millions of people still watch Citizen Kane and talk about the fascinating figure of William Randolph Hearst, and no one remembers McClellan at all.

People will certainly still be talking about Donald Trump a century from now. TAC will keep talking about him—what his election meant, the realignments it foreshadowed, the policy ideas it vindicated. In this issue, Curt Mills and Aram Bakshian both look forward to the Republican Party’s political future now that Trump has shaken up the status quo for good. Robert Merry and Michael Desch examine new currents in the foreign policy conversation and find them promising. Mark Pulliam examines a new trend in legal theory and finds it wanting.

Antonio De Oliveira Salazar is not a name still on people’s lips a century after he came to power in Portugal, but maybe it should be, as Michael Warren Davis argues in our Arts & Letters section.

Not everything is about Trump, or even politics, which is why our Winter Books Issue also features Graham Greene, E.E. Cummings, Joan Didion, and Don DeLillo.

Friedman: Fox News Gave Trump Supporters 'Permission' to Be Terrorists

While praising President-elect Joe Biden as being the one to bring the country together on CNN’s Cuomo PrimeTime Tuesday, New York Times columnist Tom Friedman proved he wasn’t about that. After once describing Republicans as un-American whores putting a bullet in the country and “biggest threat to our democracy since the Civil War,” he took to asserting that Fox News had given “permission” to Trump supporters so they could become extremists like radical Islamist suicide bombers. “I really draw on the experience now these days of the whole war against Muslim extremism after 9/11. And I tell you the biggest thing I learned from that. That you need a war of ideas and it's got to come from within,” he proclaimed after saying he was “hopeful” Biden would bring us together. He recalled speaking to “Israeli experts” immediately after 9/11 and asking them about what they learned about fighting suicide bombers. Apparently, they told him that the community needed to take away permission to be radical. “That is, if the wider community says no that’s not actually martyrdom that's murder, that’s when it starts to change,” he explained. And according to Friedman, not only did Trump give his supporters that permission, but Fox News as well. And a war needed to be waged against them: We need to take that permission away. Just Trump leaving will be at the beginning of that. But the ecosystem, the Fox News permission givers, the whole ecosystem has to say this is off. This is wrong. You are not proud boys, you're dumb boys. It has to come from within the right and that is what we all have to be calling for as journalists, as politicians, and, Chris, as business leaders. “The American business community has got to tell every one of these shows if you are promoting a big lie, we are taking the money away. That's what a war of ideas is all about,” he exclaimed.     Of course, Chris “Fredo” Cuomo agreed with everything his guest was spewing. Playing Devil’s advocate, the family business, Fredo wondered, “How do you distinguish between the ugly, who we need to ignore and disempower, and the rest of the 74 million that voted for Trump,” and “How do you deal with people feeling they've been made an enemy?” And in doing so, Cuomo lashed out at Fox News with the predictable “state news” line: Because, as you well know over, on state news and all the fringe outlets they're playing two songs right now already. One? Immigration, immigration. Biden's letting them all in. Here they come, here are the marauding hordes, the brown menace. And they hate all of you. They think you're all bigots. Now, one of those we've dealt with before. The other one is very powerful. But it seems as though CNN was already embracing the role they condemned. Because earlier in the day, CNN political director David Chalian oozed for Biden, suggesting the inauguration lights were like “extensions of Joe Biden's arms embracing America.” Then, with Friedman claiming that Democrats weren’t “deliberately ignoring [rural] parts of the country,” the two went back and forth about what Biden could do to appeal to rural America and if liberals would freak out if he did (Click “expand”): FRIEDMAN: The other huge factor here, Chris, and you saw it in the electoral map. In every one of these states, what did we see? urban centers blue. The whole rest of the state red. And somehow Biden -- And I think he is well-positioned to do this, he's got to go out there to these rural areas, listen to these people. To me he – CUOMO: Then he gets attacked, Tom. He gets attacked by the left who says land doesn't vote and why would you go and cater to the minority who just cottoned to one of the worst presidents in history, if not the worst. Worry about us. We put you in office. FRIEDMAN: Well, I don't think it has to be either/or. By the way, when you bring broadband to rural America you also create enormous opportunities for urban dwellers who actually want to live in rural, comfortable places and get out of cities. This is a positive-sum game. But Democrats don't want to go through another election where the entire rural part of America is red. And it's not that, you know, they're deliberately ignoring these parts of the country. “Trump didn't do anything for them during the last four years. But this to me is a huge opportunity for Biden,” Friedman touted. The transcript is below, click "expand" to read: CNN’s Cuomo PrimeTime January 19, 2021 9:29:39 p.m. Eastern CHRIS CUOMO: So, let's be honest with each other here. What happens tomorrow? Can we really turn a new leaf? Is a change of president enough to cause a change in the state of this country? Let's discuss where we are and where we can go. New York Times foreign affairs columnist Tom Friedman. Author of the best seller Thank You for Being Late. Good to see you, brother. How you feeling this eve? TOM FREIDMAN: Good to be with you, Chris. And I'm feeling hopeful. I watched President-elect Biden and, you know, Vice President-Elect Harris give that address today in Washington. There was something beautiful about it. And it just reminds you what happens when you turn the noise machine down. And you get two people – two decent people who are just trying to figure it out and lead by bringing people together and not by dividing and enraging. So, I am feeling hopeful. I know, it’s going to be a long slog, though, Chris. I really draw on the experience now these days of the whole war against Muslim extremism after 9/11. And I tell you the biggest thing I learned from that. That you need a war of ideas and it's got to come from within. So, what do I mean by that? I was actually in Israel on 9/11. And I sat down with Israeli experts after that and asked them. “what have you learned most about suicide bombers?” And they said, “what we've really learned is that, you know, we can catch one, we can catch another, but the third will get through unless the village says ‘no.’” That is, if the wider community says no that’s not actually martyrdom that's murder, that’s when it starts to change. And what we need here -- what Donald Trump brought us, Chris, was so unusual about his presidency is that he gave permission for some of the ugliest voices and ugliest trends and ugliest thoughts in our society to come out, to feel comfortable. And it all came to a climax in the Capitol. We need to take that permission away. Just Trump leaving will be at the beginning of that. But the ecosystem, the Fox News permission givers, the whole ecosystem has to say this is off. This is wrong. You are not proud boys, you're dumb boys. It has to come from within the right and that is what we all have to be calling for as journalists, as politicians, and, Chris, as business leaders. The American business community has got to tell every one of these shows if you are promoting a big lie, we are taking the money away. That's what a war of ideas is all about. CHRIS: How do you distinguish between the ugly, who we need to ignore and disempower, and the rest of the 74 million that voted for Trump? Because, as you well know over, on state news and all the fringe outlets they're playing two songs right now already. One? Immigration, immigration. Biden's letting them all in. Here they come, here are the marauding hordes, the brown menace. And they hate all of you. They think you're all bigots. Now, one of those we've dealt with before. The other one is very powerful. How do you deal with people feeling they've been made an enemy? FRIEDMAN: You know, Chris, there’s no question that if you listen to the voices of some of those people in the Capitol on January 6 for them 90 percent of this is about race and the other 10 percent is about race. Okay? These are people who are simply resistant to the fact we are in the process of moving from a white-majority Christian-dominated country to a minority majority country. Some of them are not going to be redeemable. We’re just going to have to wait for them to be reconciled. But there is a whole other group of people there, Chris. People who are on the wrong side of the divide. You know, Ray Dalio has written about this from Bridgewater. You know, 40 percent of America has actually done pretty well since 1980. 60 percent of America hasn’t had a raise. That’s just not on. We can’t sustain that. For those people, the country’s not working. The other huge factor here, Chris, and you saw it in the electoral map. In every one of these states, what did we see? urban centers blue. The whole rest of the state red. And somehow Biden -- And I think he is well-positioned to do this, he's got to go out there to these rural areas, listen to these people. To me he – CUOMO: Then he gets attacked, Tom.

“I expect a lot of emotion,” he said. “They want to be there. They want to welcome him home.”

Tomorrow will be an emotional day for many.

WATCH: “Why Are You Allowing This To Happen,” Trump Supporter Yells At Capitol Police for Standing Around While Protestors Are Storming Capitol (VIDEO)

After you watch this video I want you to ask yourself, why hasn’t this been played on every major news network in the country?

The reason is that this video completely destroys the narrative that all Trump Supporters who went to Washington D.C. on January 6th are violent domestic terrorists.

This unidentified man in a MAGA hat approaches Capitol Police, who are seemingly calm standing off to the side of the Capitol, while it is being stormed and asks “why are you allowing this to happen?”

The Capitol Police give the man no response and continue to stand there and do nothing.

Here Are the 244 People Who Will Be Honored in the Garden of American Heroes

Citing the recent toppling of statues of historical figures, President Donald Trump has announced the names of the 244 people who will be honored in what he calls the “National Garden of American Heroes.”

“The heroes of 1776 have been desecrated, with statues of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin vandalized and toppled,” Trump states in the executive order, adding: “The National Garden is America’s answer to this reckless attempt to erase our heroes, values, and entire way of life.”

“When the forces of anti-Americanism have sought to burn, tear down, and destroy, patriots have built, rebuilt, and lifted up,” Trump writes in the order. “That is our history. America responded to the razing of the White House by building it back in the same place with unbroken resolve, to the murders of Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King, Jr., with a national temple and the Stone of Hope, and to the terrorism of 9/11 with a new Freedom Tower.”

“In keeping with this tradition, America is responding to the tragic toppling of monuments to our founding generation and the giants of our past by commencing a new national project for their restoration, veneration, and celebration,” the president continued. 

While the location of the National Garden of American Heroes hasn’t been set yet, the garden will honor 244 people “for embodying the American spirit of daring and defiance, excellence and adventure, courage and confidence, loyalty and love,” according to the executive order, which also states, “Astounding the world by the sheer power of their example, each one of them has contributed indispensably to America’s noble history, the best chapters of which are still to come.”

According to the Monday executive order, the garden is set to be a statuary park with a task force called the Interagency Task Force for Building and Rebuilding Monuments to American Heroes in charge of planning the National Garden of American Heroes.

Apres Trump, Le Deluge

(John Hinderaker)

For four years, Donald Trump gave the U.S. a sane, America-first immigration policy. A legal one, too; he actually did his best to enforce the immigration laws, unlike the scofflaw Barack Obama. All of that will come to an end with Joe Biden’s inauguration tomorrow, and the results will be disastrous for millions of Americans. From Breitbart:

President-elect Joe Biden’s amnesty plan will reportedly provide the glittering prize of U.S. citizenship to everyone who can show they were in the United States illegally on January 1, if Congress passes the wage-cutting, nation-changing legislation amid a deep economic recession.

“To qualify, immigrants must have been in the United States as of Jan. 1, a move meant to blunt any rush to the border,” according to a description provided “by transition officials” to the Washington Post.

I assume they have no intention of being taken seriously.

The 1986 amnesty of roughly three million illegal aliens included much evidence of pre-computer fraud and a rejection rate of only about 12 percent, according to a government-sponsored study. Blue-collar household incomes have risen very little since the 1986 amnesty, although there was a sharp seven percent jump in 2019.

Coincidentally, no doubt.

The Post‘s article did not include an estimate of how many migrants — and their chain-migration extended families — would benefit from an amnesty, nor did it allow any readers’ comments.

It is always revealing when papers like the Post disable comments. Certain voices must not be heard.

The Post says the Biden administration will also drastically increase the flow of foreign college graduates, which will boost tech profits while harming a different class of Americans.

What the Democrats want most of all, of course, is illegal immigrant voters. Biden’s plan would “legalize” millions in time for the 2024 election:

The Washington Post suggests that the Biden plan also seeks to get perhaps three million illegal aliens to the voting booths in 2024, so threatening the current jobs of many GOP politicians:

Beneficiaries of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals — which granted key protections for “dreamers” — and the temporary protected status program for migrants from disaster-ravaged nations could apply for a green card immediately. The details were described by transition officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

Under current rules, legal immigrants can get citizenship and voting rights five years after getting green cards. But the Biden bill would allow the migrants to convert their green cards into citizenship in just three years, the Post reported.

Immigration policy is one of many areas where America will be a far worse place when President Trump leaves office.

Rush Limbaugh Rips Katy Tur, McKinnon for Talk of Curbing 'Poison' of Fox, Talk Radio, Etc.

On his Tuesday show, Rush Limbaugh brought up former Bush strategist Mark McKinnon, who he said used to love talk radio back when Bush was running for office. But now it's all about shutting it down, shutting down anything that's guilty of spreading "misinformation." MSNBC host Katy Tur talked to McKinnon on Monday afternoon, bemoaning the poisonous presence of Fox and OAN and Newsmax. Rush said, "Isn’t it amazing? Last week these people didn’t even know who OAN was. They had an idea of what Newsmax was, but they weren’t sure. Now all of a sudden these two organizations may as well be Satan. OAN and Newsmax." Here's the clip:  TUR: Now they're going off into the darker corners of the internet, not able to gather maybe in as large numbers online as they were before.  But is that the only solution here? Or is the solution that beyond just Republican lawmakers, beyond the Matt Gaetzes, the Andy Biggs, the Mo Brooks, et cetera, that this needs to be addressed in the public platforms that Republicans flock to, that conservatives flock to, the Fox Newses, the OANs, the Newsmaxes, the right wing talk radio, et cetera.  McKINNON: It does, Katy. There needs to be a very concerted, much broader effort, a lot of thought into how do we leach out this poison of these myths in the system that are creating this kind of violence. And I can't say specifically right now, I apologize but I know there are some efforts like that being planned right now. And I hope they’re significant, because it’s gonna take a lot and it’s gonna take a long time. Because, as you know, Katy, you've talked to a lot of these people [for Trump]. you can't just confront them with the facts because they don't believe it. They live in an alternate universe where they have been told other reality, quote "realities" that they think are realities. So it’s not gonna happen overnight, and it’s not gonna happen easily, but it’s gonna take a long and sustained effort. But I think that those kind of efforts are being contemplated and planned. Rush replied "So he’s letting us in on the idea that they at the Lincoln Project and others in the Never Trumper world are already making plans and are happy to announce them on MSNBC of getting rid of the OANs, of the Newsmaxes out there, of the Fox Newses out there, and of course right-wing talk radio. Now, McKinnon makes it clear that it ain’t gonna be easy. It isn’t gonna happen overnight. It’s gonna have to take some patience out there. It’s gonna require a long, sustained effort." PS: McKinnon emailed Rush to say he's not associated with the Lincoln Project, as Rush suggested, so he read that on the air. McKinnon's not among Lincoln Project guys, but as an MSNBC regular and a former aide to Bush and John McCain, he certainly sounds like a lot of other "MSNBC Republicans."
