Biden Re-Ignites the Waco Fire

Last week, President Joe Biden nominated David Chipman to be head of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, the premier federal firearms enforcement agency. Biden complemented that announcement with a call for a national red flag law to entitle police to preemptively confiscate firearms from citizens suspected of being a threat to themselves or others.

Chipman was a 25-year ATF agent and a key official at the 1994 federal trial of the Branch Davidians who survived the ATF and FBI assaults the prior year. Many federal agents posed for grisly “victory photos” in the rubble of the Branch Davidians’ Waco, Texas, home after it burned to the ground during an FBI assault. One photo allegedly shows Chipman proudly holding a rifle in front of the wreckage where scores of children died shortly before. The White House and Chipman’s current employer, the antigun Giffords organization, did not respond to repeated email requests to confirm or deny that Chipman is the federal agent in that photo; the Daily Mail and many online sites have tagged Chipman as the agent. In a Reddit public question and answer session in 2019, Chipman sought to spur support for an assault weapons ban by falsely claiming that the Davidians shot down two federal helicopters that were attacking their compound.

Biden’s nomination of Chipman has thrust Waco back in the national spotlight. Millions of Americans permanently lost faith in the federal government after ATF and FBI attacks concluded with more than 80 civilians dead. But few Americans are aware of Biden’s role, first in helping cover up the debacle and later, after ample damning evidence had surfaced, exonerating federal law enforcement and instead blaming Americans who distrusted Washington. Biden’s behavior on Waco is a bad portent for anyone who expects federal agencies to be leashed during his reign.

At the time of the federal assault at Waco, Biden was chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which had primary oversight jurisdiction over the conduct of federal law enforcement agencies. How did Biden react to an FBI tank and toxic gas assault that ended with shocking carnage? On the day after the fire, Biden “cautioned that lawmakers should wait until all the details become available before it begins second-guessing the Justice Department,” the New York Times reported. Biden declared, “We’ve got to wait to figure out what happened before we have hearings.” Delaying hearings until after the federal agencies that had blundered (or far worse) announced the “facts of the matter” would have horrified earlier generations of congressional leaders who courageously exposed federal lies and cover-ups, from Sen. William Fulbright’s investigation of the Vietnam War in the 1960s to Sen. Frank Church’s investigation of FBI and CIA rampages in the 1970s.

Biden conducted zero hearings on Waco while he was chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. After Republicans captured control of Congress in the 1994 elections, committee chairman Orrin Hatch (R-UT) held hearings in late 1995. Despite plenty of damning disclosures of federal misconduct at Waco in the prior two years, Biden was emphatic that the real problem was “a growing number of people across the country who are seizing on the incidents at Waco as well as at Ruby Ridge to suggest that law enforcement is our enemy.”

“The record from Waco does not evidence…any improper motive or intent on the part of law enforcement,” Biden declared. Instead, Biden touted “the excellent overall record of the Federal law enforcement agencies, including both the ATF and the FBI.” Biden vindicated the feds: “The ATF had a legitimate and very important reason to be at Waco in the first place, that is, to serve warrants on those reasonably suspected of violating the Federal criminal laws.” But if the ATF Waco search is Biden’s idea of “legitimate,” the next four years will be hell on civil liberties.

The Waco investigation got rolling in July 1992, when ATF agent Davy Aguilera visited the Branch Davidians’ gun dealer, and suggested the Davidians were illegally converting semiautomatic firearms to full automatic firing capacity, a federal felony. When Davidian leader David Koresh was told about that allegation, he invited Aguilera to visit the Davidians’ residence and conduct an on-the-spot inspection. Aguilera refused the invitation and his subsequent affidavit application to search the Davidians’ residence “contained an incredible number of false statements,” according to a 1996 congressional report.

In an October 1995 Senate hearing, Biden declared, “Nobody in Washington, nobody in ATF, nobody involved with ATF had an idea that, you know, those Branch Davidians are dangerous people, Koresh is a dangerous guy, we have got to be aggressive and go after them.” The ATF’s subsequent conduct reveals Biden’s definition of “non-aggressive.” Instead of conducting a peaceful search of the Davidians’ sprawling wooden home, the ATF chose to launch a massive attack on its peaceful residents. On February 28, 1993, more than 70 ATF agents and three military helicopters launched a Sunday morning attack with no warning. Prior to the assault, the ATF alerted several television stations to assure coverage of a raid expected to seize a big cache of weapons. CBS’s 60 Minutes disclosed that ATF agents said “the initial attack on that cult in Waco was a publicity stunt—the main goal of which was to improve ATF’s tarnished image.” A 1996 congressional investigation noted that ATF deliberately chose a “dynamic entry approach. The bias toward the use of force may in large part be explained by a culture within ATF,” including “promotional criteria.”

ATF claimed a surprise attack was necessary because Koresh almost never came out of his home. Six years after the attack, thanks to FOIA hounding by former federal lawyer David Hardy, the ATF finally disclosed a memo revealing that, nine days before the raid, two undercover ATF agents (recognized as such by Koresh) knocked on the door of the Davidian residence and invited Koresh to go shooting. Koresh, two other Davidians, and the two agents had a fine time shooting AR-15s and SIG Sauer semiautomatic pistols. Koresh provided the ammo and the agents handed him their guns. The ATF undercover agents’ official report, filed before the raid, noted: “Mr. Koresh stated that he believed that every person had the right to own firearms and protect their homes.” Koresh could have easily been arrested that day but that would have preempted the biggest and most glorious raid in ATF history.

Instead, the raid quickly turned into a debacle, leaving four ATF agents and six Davidians dead. The ATF claimed Davidians “ambushed” their agents, a story promoted by the vast majority of the media. But after ATF agents told superiors that the ATF shot first, the ATF ceased its shooting review to avoid creating documents that could subvert the court case against the Davidians. A Treasury Department report written by outside experts and issued in September 1993 condemned “deliberately misleading post-raid statements about the raid and the raid plan by certain ATF supervisors.” After the raid debacle, the FBI took over the scene and ramped up the pressure on the Davidians. The FBI settled on an assault plan that included using military tanks to collapse the building atop the residents. The FBI fired pyrotechnic rounds at the scene, perhaps the source of the conflagration that ended the standoff.

Biden was one of the most fervent champions of the federal drug war in the 1980s and 1990s, but he had no complaint about the ATF’s drug war scam at Waco. Prior to the raid, ATF officials were told that it would be illegal for the U.S. military to assist them unless there was a “drug nexus” to the case. Voila! A few days later, the ATF notified military officials that they suspected the Davidians had a methamphetamine lab in their basement. ATF agents then received training in close-quarters combat and called in military helicopters from the Texas National Guard to assault the Davidians’ home in conjunction with the agents attacking on the ground. Despite such extensive preparations, the drug charge vanished immediately after the raid, and federal prosecutors never raised the issue at the surviving Davidians’ 1994 trial. A 1996 congressional report concluded that the ATF’s actions during and after the raid made it “clear that the ATF believed that a methamphetamine lab did not exist.” The House report concluded that “the ATF intentionally misled Defense Department and military personnel” regarding the existence of the meth lab. But federal agencies treated those lies as a harmless error since they did not reduce government power.

At the trial of the surviving Davidians in 1994, federal prosecutors compared Koresh to Hitler and Stalin and declared that the 11 defendants were “as much religious terrorists as the people who blew up…Pan Am 103.” But the jury found all the Davidian defendants not guilty of murder, though seven were convicted of manslaughter. The New York Times characterized the verdict as a “stunning defeat” for the federal government; a Los Angeles Times headline declared, “Outcome Indicates Jurors Placed Most Blame on the Government.” Jury foreman Sarah Bain commented after the trial, “The federal government was absolutely out of control there…. The wrong people were on trial, it should have been the ones that planned the raid and orchestrated it.”

But neither the jury verdicts nor House hearings in the summer of 1995 that exposed further ATF and FBI deceits and abuses dented Joe Biden’s view. Instead, at the Senate hearings in October of that year, Biden portrayed the real danger as people on the “left and right who see everything as some great conspiracy.” Biden sought “to establish that this wasn’t Big Brother sitting up in Washington.” If the ATF mass assault and the FBI tank-and-toxic-gas attack don’t count as Big Brother, what does?

Biden is making restoring trust in government a theme of his presidency. In his inaugural address, he declared, “Each of us has a duty and a responsibility as citizens, as Americans, and especially as leaders…to defend the truth and defeat the lies.” Biden’s conduct on Waco and his nomination of David Chipman signal that Americans can’t count on any help from the White House in defeating the lies.

Is The Coronavirus Finished?

(John Hinderaker)

The Centers for Disease Control is an unreliable, politicized agency, in my opinion. But I assume they can aggregate death totals accurately from local sources. For the last year, there clearly have been some excess deaths, from all causes, over demographically predicted norms. That is what the chart below, from CDC’s web site, shows.

But we also know that the overwhelming majority of people who died from covid, or rather had the word “covid” somewhere on their death certificates, were old and already very sick. So it is reasonable to think that most “covid deaths” were people who, absent covid, would have died sometime in the next few months or the next year or two. If that is the case, we should see lower than predicted deaths from all causes going forward.

That is what the current data from CDC show:

Numbers for the last few weeks are incomplete, but already, five weeks ago, reported deaths were below demographic predictions. And the total number of deaths is sinking like a stone. What that means, I think, is that over the next year or two the “covid deaths” that have been counted over the last year will largely be neutralized by fewer total deaths. If so, that will confirm that “covid deaths” overwhelmingly consisted of not just the elderly, but the elderly and already very sick.

Man at Riot Curses Out CNN LIVE: Press 'Twisting Up' Story, 'Makes This Worse'

CAUTION: The man who confronted CNN used very explicit language. Reader discretion is advised. On Monday, the community of Brooklyn Center, Minnesota was teetering on the verge of another night of violent riots after an officer apparently shot a suspect on accident, discharging her duty pistol instead of the Taser she announced. In response, CNN sent their buzzards to circle the area and glorify the violence in a renewed push of the anti-police narrative. But one unknown man stepped up to CNN and called them out in an expletive lased dress down. Far-left correspondent Sara Sidner was making her way towards the chaos at the Brooklyn Center Police Department when the unnamed man swooped in to call out her and the rest of the media: MAN: And as you can see, y’all be twisting up the story and shit y’all doin’. SIDNER: Do you want to talk to me? You want to talk to me? MAN: Yeah I do. [Reaches for mic] SIDNER: Okay, cool. Don't take my mic. We're cool. What's your name? MAN: What's my name? My name is my name. “What I think about this is all the press and all the extra shit y’all do makes this worse,” he declared. Sidner seemed confused by his comment, asking: “You think so?” While it was unclear by what he specifically meant by “twisting up the story and shit,” the man then argued that people should not be gathering at the police station, and seemed to suggest they should be protesting at someplace that could make the change they wanted.     “Yes. When people want to protest they shouldn't do it in front of a fucking police station. Yeah. Courthouse. Shit like that. You get what the fuck I'm saying,” he crassly pressed. Sidner tried to defuse the situation by telling the man that she feared for his safely: SIDNER: I want you to be careful. I want you to be careful. I really do. MAN: Of what? SIDNER: Of anything that can hit you. MAN: Of what? SIDNER: Of anything that could hit you. Look at all the stuff coming -- MAN: Of what? SIDNER: Of this. MAN: Do I look like I'm scared? SIDNER: No, you don't. MAN: Do I look like I'm scared? SIDNER: You don't, you don’t. “Exactly. Y’all need to get up out of here with all that twisting up the media and shit. Real shit,” he shot back. To show her interest in talking about something “real,” Sidner offered to give the man her number in order to conduct an interview at a later time, but the man wasn’t buying it. He accused Sidner of recording video just to edit it later, only to have her inform him that they were indeed live to the world at that very moment (click “expand”): SIDNER: All right, here's my phone, let's go ahead and show me a number. MAN: Nah. You got the camera out, talk about something that's real. SIDNER: Tell me what's real. MAN: Y’all just going to edit out the shit you don’t want. SIDNER: We're live. MAN: You're going to edit out some other shit. SIDNER: Listen, we’re live right now. MAN: You're not fucking live. SIDNER: I'm live right now. MAN: I don’t care if you’re live or not. Get away from here with all that media shit that y’all doin’. SIDNER: Okay, but we can’t edit here. This is live. This is live right now. MAN: Look. SIDNER: We're with CNN. MAN: Then take that camera all the way the fuck up there then. “That’s where we’re going when you stopped us,” Sidner explained. “Listen, we’re going up there. All right, you watch us. That's where we're going.” They parted ways shortly thereafter, with the man telling them to “Take y’all ass up there.” This is CNN. The transcript is below, click "expand" to read: CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time April 12, 2021 9:41:16 p.m. Eastern (…) SARA SIDNER: If you look just now, I'm going to try and sort of stand in the street a little bit, you look there, now you can see -- now you can see – [Voice from off camera yelling] UNIDENTIFIED MAN: And as you can see, y’all be twisting up the story and shit y’all doin’. SIDNER: Do you want to talk to me? You want to talk to me? MAN: Yeah I do. [Reaches for mic] SIDNER: Okay, cool. Don't take my mic. We're cool. What's your name? MAN: What's my name? My name is my name. SIDNER: All right, so. Tell me what you think about what's going on here. MAN: What I think about this is all the press and all the extra shit y’all do makes this worse!

The hot button issue of white privilege was randomly introduced in the last episode, similar to how racist police were inserted in the first season finale.  In Episode 8, titled “Remember when Cocoa Found Her Calling?”, the teenage daughter in the family, Jade (Talia Jackson), is confronted by her best friend, a white girl named Kelly Anne, resulting in a discussion about white privilege. Both girls enter a fashion design competition in Atlanta’s Fashion Week High School Show. Jade wins an entry into the fashion show but Kelly Anne does not. Jade tells Kelly Anne she sorry she didn’t win a spot in the competition, too. Kelly Anne offers her congratulations, but then she mentions that minorities get all the advantages, “They probably just needed some more diversity so it makes sense they picked you.” She goes on, “I just wish I had said I was part Native American on my application.” She’s not, as Jade points out, but Kelly Anne says, “By the time they figured that out, my design would have already been on the runway next to yours.” Jade is amazed that Kelly Anne is so clueless and tells her so. Kelly Anne then says, "I guess it’s a white thing. You wouldn’t understand.” Jade talks to her father at home and calls the conversation “reverse racism theory”. Her father, Moz (Anthony Alabi), tells Jade that race is a difficult subject but if no one ever talks about it, nothing will change. Then, as they are talking, Kelly Anne shows up at their house to apologize to Jade. Her mother, she says, called her “a Karen” when she discussed the conversation the two had earlier. Her mother "was really upset and she broke down white privilege. Now I understand how horrible I was to you. I’m so sorry.” Then she asks if she can be Jade’s assistant and that's the end of the rift between them. Again, a random moment of woke lecturing in an otherwise sweet family comedy. Sadly, it's become par for the course on tv these days.

NEW NewsBusters Podcast: Stelter's Latest Call to Get Tucker Cancelled

On Sunday's Reliable Sources, CNN host Brian Stelter organized another session in demanding Fox News cancel Tucker Carlson's show or perhaps the entire channel should be cancelled by cable providers. The whole first half-hour of the show was an attack on Fox News, as if these attacks are going to help CNN in the ratings. First, Stelter turned to Jonathan Greenblatt, head of the Anti-Defamation League, who insisted Carlson was a white supremacist menace who had to be removed from Fox:  CNN’s @BrianStelter leads with guest, @JGreenblattADL, who demands “Tucker has got to go” and urges cable operators to drop FNC. “If Fox won’t act...it may be time for...the cable companies to act to finally, once and for all, say that America is, simply put, no place for hate.” pic.twitter.com/VFy1kUd8qI — Brent Baker (@BrentHBaker) April 11, 2021 Then Stelter turned to CNN analyst Amanda Carpenter (a former conservative turned incessant Trump hater) and Washington Post reporter Philip Bump. Carpenter insisted "immigration and voting rights, it all goes together in a powerful nationalist way that Republicans should reject. But if you let the strongest voices in the room like Tucker control the conversation, it's only going to get more radical." She claimed Fox is so desperate for younger viewers that they are seeking out "people that are addicted to Donald [Trump] Reddit threads and adopting that kind of language." Many people isolated the part of the show when Stelter and Matt Gertz of Media Matters fussing about how Fox stars hadn't made "vaccine selfies" for social media, and how Fox News has a "special responsibility" to sell the vaccine, since its viewers are kinda backwards and only believe Fox.  Listen below or wherever you listen to podcasts.

BREAKING: Black Lives Matter Thugs Looting Brooklyn Center Dollar Tree (VIDEO)

The Black Lives Matter thugs that the media are attempting to run cover for by referring to them as “peaceful protesters” are now looting a Dollar Tree.

The rioters are currently inside the Dollar Tree located on N. Humboldt Ave., near the Brooklyn Center Police station.

BLM Protesters Shut Down Manhattan Bridge in New York City in ‘Solidarity with Daunte Wright’ (VIDEO)

BLM protests are beginning to pop off all over the country in response to the officer-involved shooting death of 20-year-old Daunte Wright.

A Brooklyn Center, MN police officer shot and killed Daunte Wright Sunday night.

Police were in the process of cuffing Wright during a traffic stop when he broke free and jumped in his car.

According to the police chief, the officer “accidentally discharged” her weapon instead of using a taser.

Daunte Wright crashed his car after he tried to flee the scene.

A massive BLM protest formed outside of the Brooklyn Center Police Department Monday night and other cities joined in solidarity.

Dangerous Word Games: Nets Drop 'Mostly Peaceful,' Riots Are Now 'Protests'

The left’s Orwellian redefining of words took a dangerous step Monday as all three of the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) started to refer to the riots of Brooklyn Center, Minnesota as “protests,” effectively dropping the “mostly peaceful” label they were mocked for using in the summer of 2020. All of this followed an apparently accidental shooting where a police officer seemingly went to use her Taser but discharged her duty pistol instead. The first showing of the media’s dangerous rebranding of riots came earlier in the day when an activist journalist screamed at Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Gannon, saying “there was no riot” as he described how his officers were attacked with projectiles. “The officers that were putting themselves in harm's way were being pelted with frozen cans of pop, they were being pelted with concrete blocks,” he told the press. The truth didn’t matter to the broadcast networks as they gaslit their audiences. “A curfew now in place following protests and clashes with police,” announced ABC’s World News Tonight anchor, David Muir during the opening tease. And as CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell teased the “violent protests,” NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt noted that “protesters clashing with police.” There is no such thing as a “violent protest,” “protesters” don’t clash, and states of emergency are not needed. Those are rioters. And cities don’t need to call in the National Guard because they’re “on edge and bracing for another night of protests.” But that was O’Donnell’s spin.     Holt also lamented how “the community [was] bracing for another night of protests and unrest.” ABC correspondent Stephanie Ramos flaunted her cognitive dissonance as she reported on how “protests erupted.” While showing a clip of a woman yelling “Oh, my God,” explosions could be heard in the background. “[Dante] Wright's killing sparked a night of chaos just ten miles from where former officer Derek Chauvin is on trial for the murder of George Floyd,” added CBS correspondent Omar Villafranca. “Protesters confronted police who responded with flashbangs and tear gas, as local businesses were also looted.” But, Omar, what about the frozen cans of soda and the cement blocks that were thrown at the police? On NBC, correspondent Meagan Fitzgerald suggested it was the police who “escalated” the situation: FITZGERALD: Hundreds of protesters took to the streets outraged. CROWD: No justice. No peace. FITZGERALD: Marching to the Brooklyn Center police station where the situation escalated, police deploying rubber bullets, tear gas, and flashbangs. And she didn’t bat an eye as she reported how a state of emergency and curfew were put in place as “more protests are expected tonight.” It’s almost as if they’re glorifying the violence, or they want it. This dangerous word game was made possible because of lucrative sponsorships from Dell on ABC, Progressive on CBS, and Liberty Mutual on NBC.

The transcripts are below, click "expand" to read: ABC’s World News Tonight April 12, 2021 6:33:11 p.m. Eastern (…) DAVID MUIR: As word spread, protesters gathered. Police in riot gear.

Tensions already high in the city with the trial of Derek Chauvin just ten miles away. (…) [Cuts back to live] MUIR: And Stephanie Ramos with us tonight from Brooklyn Center, outside Minneapolis. And Stephanie, I know the governor tonight announcing a curfew in the Twin Cities Metro Area. They're bracing for more protests? RAMOS: Yes, David. And you can already a large crowd of protesters gathered outside the Brooklyn Center Police Department behind me. That curfew does go into effect tonight from seven o’clock this evening until six o’clock tomorrow morning in multiple cities including Minneapolis and right here in Brooklyn Center. And police tell us that communities will see an increased presence of the Minnesota National Guard and other law enforcement. CBS Evening News April 12, 2021 6:32:20 p.m. Eastern NORAH O’DONNELL: Good evening and thank you for joining us. We're going to begin tonight with breaking news. The state of Minnesota is on edge and bracing for another night of protests after the police shooting of a black man just a few miles from where former officer Derek Chauvin is on trial for killing George Floyd. Well, tonight the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul are under states of emergency and the governor has imposed a seven o’clock curfew for surrounding cities. (…) OMAR VILLAFRANCA: There’s a big crowd of protestors behind me blocking the street in front of the Brooklyn Center Police Department. On the other side, National Guardsmen and officers in full riot gear standing behind concrete barricades and fencing they have just set up, getting ready for what could become another long night. (…) VILLAFRANCA: Wright's killing sparked a night of chaos just ten miles from where former officer Derek Chauvin is on trial for the murder of George Floyd. Protesters confronted police who responded with flash bangs and tear gas, as local businesses were also looted. Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey declared a state of emergency and the governor set a 7:00 p.m. curfew for the entire city. (…) NBC Nightly News April 12, 2021 7:00:45 p.m. Eastern [Opening tease] LESTER HOLT: The outrage, protesters clashing with police, a state of emergency declared, a curfew ordered, and the National Guard on alert.

Former Democrat Rep. Gil Cisneros Takes Biden Pentagon Post over Running for Congress Again

Former California Democrat Rep. Gil Cisneros (D-CA) was nominated by President Joe Biden, Monday for under secretary of defense for personnel and readiness at the Department of Defense. The move comes as yet another setback for House Democrats, who had hoped he would -- as he had been signaling he might -- run for his old seat, which he lost in 2020 to a Republican.

Shameless Reporter Tells Brooklyn Center Police Chief There Was No Riot Last Night in Minnesota — Brooklyn Center Police Chief Sets Him Straight (VIDEO)

The rioters were out in force last night looting and destroying their community after police shot and killed wanted gangbanger Daunte Wright.

The rioters looted several businesses including a liquor store, a computer store, and a hair supply store.

During the press conference on Monday leftist reporters tried to lecture Police Chief Tim Gannon on the situation on Sunday night.

One reporter told Chief Gannon that the riot was not a riot!

That’s when Chief Gannon set them straight.

Tim Gannon: “There was… the officers that were putting themselves in harm’s way were being pelted with frozen cans of pop, they were being pelted with concrete blocks.”

Brooklyn Center Police Chief Gannon: "I was front and center… at the riot."

Reporter: "There was no riot."

A massive BLM protest formed outside of the Brooklyn Center Police Department Monday night in response to the shooting death of 20-year-old Daunte Wright.

Brooklyn Center, MN police on Monday released bodycam footage of the moments leading to the fatal shooting of 20-year-old Daunte Wright.

Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Gannon called the shooting of Daunte Wright an “accidental discharge.”

“It is my belief that the officer had the intention to employ their taser, but instead shot Mr. Wright with a single bullet,” he said.

Black Civil Rights attorneys are calling for the police chief and police officer to be fired.

Several hundred BLM protesters gathered outside of the police department Monday night and shrugged off a 7:00 PM curfew.

State troopers have been guarding the fenced off police department all day.

War In Ukraine?

(John Hinderaker)

America’s adversaries are on the march. China has suppressed Hong Kong and threatens Taiwan, along with Japan and other Asian allies of America. ISIS is rearing its head again in the Middle East. And Russia is once again threatening Ukraine.

Russia now has more troops along its border with Ukraine than at any time since 2014, and Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky has little hope that war can be avoided. Moscow’s demands are impossible to meet.

“A diplomatic solution…requires a radical change in the position of the Kyiv authorities,” said Konstantin Sivkov, a Moscow-based military analyst. “If the Kyiv authorities agree to the recognition of the federal structure of Ukraine, if the authorities agree to the equal status of the Russian language in Ukraine along with the Ukrainian language, then the whole problem in [Donbas] will be removed,” he said.

The Ukrainians fear that giving Russia further opportunity to undermine the government in Kyiv will only result in the slow erosion of their independence.

In the end, it seems that the Ukrainians will have to fight. CNN has a surprisingly intelligent report:

[A]mid growing tensions with the United States and its Western allies, Russian forces have again been spotted on the move across the border sparking concerns the war may be reignited.

Cell phone video has emerged of Russian armored columns driving towards the Ukrainian frontier. Tanks and artillery guns have been seen being transported by rail. There’s also been a build-up reported in Crimea.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was briefly famous in the U.S. because President Trump called to congratulate him on his election, the occasion for an insane impeachment effort by the Democrats. But Zelensky’s duties are ongoing:

Ankle-deep in thick black sludge, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky moves stealthily with his troops in single file through the warren of trenches and tunnels that form the tense front lines in the east of his country.

It feels more like the early 20th century than a modern conflict, with tired, nervous soldiers gripping their rifles around him as they reach open ground, scanning the area for movement across no-mans-land.

They know snipers, likely trained by Russians, say Ukrainian officials are looking for a chance to fire. More than 20 of their comrades have been gunned down already this year.

More at the link. Ukraine is trying to prevent being dismembered by Putin’s Russia. Putin, of course, will deny any such intent up until the moment when the dismemberment occurs. One fact you will not see reported by CNN or any “mainstream” news outlet is that the Russians, like the Chinese, are well aware that we have a senile president–and, worse, a president whose administration is anti-American. That means that there is no time like the present for aggressive actions. Sadly, we can expect more hostile moves by our enemies in the months and years to come.

Bipartisan Senate Bill Calls on Biden to Declassify COVID Intelligence

Trump lashes out

(Paul Mirengoff)

On Saturday, Donald Trump spoke to a Republican National Committee event at Mar-a-Lago. From reports by some in attendance, it looks like the former president, in true Trumpian fashion, aired grievances and bitterly attacked former allies.

Most notably, Trump went after Mitch McConnell. Reportedly, he called the Minority Leader a “dumb son of a bitch” and claimed that Chuck Schumer would never have allowed the 2020 presidential results to be certified. Trump also claimed, again according to accounts, that he won the Kentucky Senate race for McConnell.

Such a claim would be absurd. McConnell crushed his opponent by nearly 20 percentage points in 2020. Kentucky has elected him to the Senate seven times.

We don’t know for sure what Chuck Schumer would have done regarding certification of the 2020 election had the shoe been on the other foot. We know that Schumer did not try to prevent Trump from being the certified winner in 2016 in a race that was about as close as the 2020 contest.

Presumably, Schumer didn’t try to block Trump for the same reason that McConnell didn’t try to block Biden. Neither believed that the results to be certified were invalid, and neither wanted a constitutional crisis or a pitched battle over presidential succession. In my view, Trump has never presented evidence that should have persuaded McConnell that Trump was the proper winner of the 2020 campaign.

We also know that Al Gore didn’t press Democrats not to certify the results of the 2000 election, even though he probably had a better claim than Trump of having obtained the votes needed to win. I don’t consider Gore’s decision dumb, I consider it patriotic.

My favorite line from Trump’s speech, as reported, is this statement about Republicans who voted to impeach him:

We can’t have these guys that like publicity.

If we can’t have politicians who like publicity, we’ll have to fire virtually the entire political class. If we can’t have ones who obsessively crave publicity, Trump will have to be among the first disqualified.

Republicans can talk all they want about divisions in the Democratic party, and they should. However, Trump’s speech reminds us that it’s Democrats who are likely to be passing the most popcorn in the coming years.

Paul Gosar: Joe Biden 'Recklessly' Wasting Taxpayer Money by Halting Border Wall Construction

President Joe Biden is violating federal directives imposed by Congress by halting construction of border wall along the United States-Mexico border, Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) says. 

TOPSHOT-US-MEXICO-IMMIGRATION-POLITICS

In a photo taken on March 28, 2021 ranch owner Tony Sandoval (67) stands before a portion of the unfinished border wall that former US president Donald Trump tried to build, near the southern Texas border city of Roma. - The 11,000 inhabitants of the Texas border town Roma have been living with illegal immigrants for decades. Many have mixed feelings about the new arrivals: empathy and compassion on the one hand - especially since many of their family members also arrived in the United States illegally - but also concern and fear about the growing number of migrants in recent months. Sometimes 500 per night, many of them families or unaccompanied minors. (Photo by Ed JONES / AFP) (Photo by ED JONES/AFP via Getty Images)

Biden’s Handlers Shout Down Reporters Trying to Ask Questions After Virtual CEO Summit (VIDEO)

Joe Biden joined a virtual CEO summit on semiconductor and supply chain resilience on Monday.

Biden met with more than a dozen CEOs and reassured them Congress backed his $50 billion proposal for semiconductor and manufacturing research.

“Taking care of elderly parents and kids with disabilities so people can go to work is investing in infrastructure,” said Biden.

“Chips like the one I have here, these chips, these [semiconductor] wafers, are batteries, broadband — it’s all infrastructure,” he added.

Biden’s handlers aggressively shouted down reporters trying to ask questions after the summit.

“Shit! I shot him.”

(John Hinderaker)

Bodycam footage has been released on the police shooting last night in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota. Three police officers, one black man, one white man and one woman, stopped a vehicle being driven by 20-year-old Daunte Wright. Wright was wanted on an arrest warrant.

Initially Wright got out of his car, but then apparently changed his mind, fought with police officers, climbed back into his car and drove away. As the officers were struggling with Wright, the police woman attempted to tase him. Evidently she accidentally pulled out her gun rather than her taser and shot Wright with it. I believe the Brooklyn Center Police Department has already fired her, or announced its intention to do so.

Update: Here is body cam footage showing #DuanteWright trying to escape an arrest & getting shot by a female officer. He ended up crashing into another occupied car & dying. The @BPPD police chief says it appears the officer meant to use a taser but accidentally used her pistol. pic.twitter.com/B0v14RHint

Wright had been charged with illegally carrying a weapon and with, on that occasion also, fleeing a police officer. He failed to appear for a hearing on April 2.

Latest #BLM violence near Minneapolis sparked by police shooting of #DaunteWright. He was wanted on a warrant when he attempted to flee by car. He was shot & drove a distance before crashing into others. His FB is filled w/him flashing gang signs, using drugs & showing off cash. pic.twitter.com/StANTcJ2bs

— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) April 12, 2021


As shown in photos tweeted above by Andy Ngo, Wright’s Facebook page features a gun, wads of cash, gang signs and what looks like a joint.

This case is somewhat reminiscent of Mohammed Noor’s shooting of Justine Damond in Minneapolis a few years ago. That incident, too, involved almost incredible negligence on the part of the police officer. The difference, of course, is that Damond did nothing whatsoever wrong. Having called 911, she approached the squad car that responded to her call on the driver’s side and Noor, for no discernible reason, pulled his gun and shot her, firing across his partner’s body. In the current case, Wright was resisting arrest and attempting to flee. It was the confusion caused by his struggle that led to the police woman’s fatal error.

Minnesota’s Governor Tim Walz must be the most irresponsible governor in the U.S. Before anything was known about the circumstances of last night’s incident, Walz was already making it about race:

I am closely monitoring the situation in Brooklyn Center. Gwen and I are praying for Daunte Wright’s family as our state mourns another life of a Black man taken by law enforcement.

— Governor Tim Walz (@GovTimWalz) April 12, 2021


It doesn’t appear that there was any racial angle in last night’s fatal encounter at all.

A final observation: At this moment, Governor Walz and others are giving a press conference on last night’s shooting. They recited a list of victims of police shootings, but never mentioned Justine Damond–the one case that is actually analogous.

How Joe Biden created the border crisis

(Paul Mirengoff)

Byron York begins his article on the present border crisis this way:

Anyone paying attention to the news knows the situation on the U.S.-Mexico border is terrible. Anyone who actually visits the border discovers it is worse than that.

Byron bases this statement on his visit to the border, during which he accompanied a group of GOP House members. The observations in his report support his conclusion.

But why is there a border crisis? Byron persuasively argues that it’s the product of Joe Biden’s missteps:

[D]uring his first days in office. . .Biden blew up the foundation of the government’s handling of migrants. With a series of executive actions, Biden threw out key policies with nothing ready to replace them. And he did it using rhetoric that invited migrants to rush to the border — more than 172,000 in March alone, including nearly 19,000 unaccompanied children.

What policies did Biden throw out?

First, he did away with President Donald Trump’s Remain in Mexico policy, which required asylum-seekers to stay in Mexico, not in the U.S., while their asylum claims were adjudicated. Second, Biden ended Trump’s asylum agreements with the Northern Triangle countries, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, to steer would-be asylum-seekers from those nations into safe countries other than the U.S.

Third, Biden gutted Trump’s use of Title 42, the government’s authority to expel most migrants for the purpose of controlling the spread of COVID. Biden did not throw Title 42 away altogether but is by some accounts now letting most would-be migrants stay rather than be turned away because of the pandemic.

Biden could counter the surge by reinstating these policies, but he doesn’t want to. He’d rather hand the problem over to Kamala Harris, who can’t be bothered to visit the border.

Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, who did visit it as part of the group of GOP legislators, summarized things this way:

What I saw on this trip was chaos and disorder. What the Biden administration does not want you to know is simply that they have handed over the borders of our country to the cartels and smugglers.

Do any Democrats care? Maybe some from districts directly affected by the crisis. Rep. Steve Scalise told Byron that “Henry [Cuellar] is getting to a boiling point, and there a couple of others.” However,
Scalise added that “this is something that you can’t defend, so [Democrats] can only hope that they can keep everybody quiet.”

With the help of the mainstream media, the Democrats’ chances of fulfilling this hope aren’t bad.

Super Woke ‘Supergirl’ Cast Wants Gender Surgery for Minors

Arkansas: Don’t let kids who are too young to make life altering decisions make any life altering decisions. Celebs: Arkansas wants to “hurt kids.” For what seems like and is the safest option for kids who think they were born in the wrong body and want to chop off their genitals, Arkansas' HB 1570 law has come into quite the controversy. Recently, a lot of the cast of CW's Supergirl has taken it upon themselves to demand transgender youth be able to get sex changes … because their job as actors just isn’t enough.  On April 6, the Associated Press broke the news that Arkansas is the “first state to ban gender confirming treatments and surgery for transgender youth.” Essentially, those under age 18 will not be allowed puberty blockers, hormone treatments, or sex reassignment surgeries since they are minors and can’t even decide what they want to do as careers, never mind which gender they should be. To no one’s surprise, Bounding into Comics reported how these Supergirl actors spat their disapproval on the legislature (FYI, none of these actors live in Arkansas or are children). Starting off strong is transgender actress Nicole Maines who plays a transgender superhero named Dreamer on the show. Maines once told Ellen that she was between three and four years old when she realized she was not the male that she was born as. Pretty woke three year old if you ask me.  This will hurt kids. You should all be ashamed. https://t.co/awnkw0tpoa — Nicole Maines (@NicoleAMaines) April 7, 2021 In response to Maines’ tweet, one user asked how her life “would be different” if Maines were denied puberty blockers to which Maines replied, “I wouldn’t be alive.” Implying that Maines would have committed suicide if she weren’t given puberty blockers is a pretty extreme way for Maines to show her advocacy on open healthcare for trans kids.  Next up is another actress whose character is part of the alphabet community. Chyler Leigh, who plays a lesbian and is a real life lesbian, continued the emotional manipulation by screaming that “This is a matter of LIFE & DEATH.” Hey, at least she gets brownie points for dramatic effect. This a matter of LIFE & DEATH for transgender youth! #TransRightsAreHumanRights https://t.co/lGhcz9YggG — Chyler Leigh (@chy_leigh) April 7, 2021 Straight white male Jon Cryer, whose character in the series is not gay or trans, took the next step and blamed Republicans in general for Arkansas’ passing of the bill. The last name fits the narrative for this crying baby. Elected Republicans think that they can win politically by denying the basic humanity of trans people. Truly disgusting. #TransRightsAreHumanRights https://t.co/UmvkwCcUDV — Jon Cryer (@MrJonCryer) April 7, 2021 Even Supergirl writer Eric Carrasco thought the bill was “sickening” which makes sense considering he made all the characters as woke as possible. He later replied to a user and claimed that those in support of the bill are “monsters” and he wishes them “nothing but misery.” (His tweets are private (scaredy cat) so visit the Bounding link above!) One thing is for sure, Supergirl is probably one of the most woke shows on tv and the actors take the theatrics to their real lives, too.

Joe Biden Nominates First Female Army Secretary

Joe Biden nominated the first female Army Secretary on Monday.

If confirmed, Christine Wormuth, the director of the International Security and Defense Policy Center at the RAND Corp, will be the first woman in the position.

“Christine is a true patriot with a dedicated career in service to America and our nation’s security,” Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said in a statement urging the Senate to confirm her. “I have no doubt that, if confirmed, she will lead our soldiers and represent their families with honor and integrity as the Secretary of the Army.”

The Hill reported:

Wormuth most recently served as the head of Biden’s Pentagon transition team, a role she took over after Deputy Defense Secretary Kathleen Hicks stepped aside to focus on her own confirmation process.

She last worked at the Pentagon during the Obama administration. From 2014 to 2016, she served as under secretary of Defense for policy, considered the department’s third most-powerful civilian job, a role that saw her “advising two secretaries of Defense on the full range of foreign policy and national security issues,” the White House said.

“As the former under secretary of Defense for policy, Christine advanced the department’s counter-ISIS campaign and the rebalance to Asia, and her deep expertise will be critical in addressing and deterring today’s global threats, including the pacing challenge from China and nation-state threats emanating from Russia, Iran and North Korea,” Austin said in his statement.
