Trump Brokers Historic Middle East Peace Deal, CNN Complains About Crowd Size & Lack of Social Distancing

Today at the White House, President Trump brought together the leaders of Israel, Bahrain and the UAE to sign a major peace deal for the Middle East, which will normalize diplomatic relations between Israel and each of the two Gulf states.

This is, as Joe Biden would say, “a big f*ckin’ deal,” because it is a step closer to peace in the region–well, at least between Israel and its neighbors. The ultimate endgame, I believe, is to get the Saudis to follow suit and establish relations with Israel, because the UAE would not have done this without Saudi approval. This would officially cement an Arab-Israeli alliance against Iran.

It’s not every day you see Arab nations recognizing Israel. They are not exactly fond of one another. It has only happened twice before–with Egypt in 1979 and with Jordan in 1994.

And this is how CNN described the scene at the White House:

It was a “White House Event” with a “large crowd” and “little social distancing.”

Shhh. Nobody tell CNN about BLM’s “large crowds” with “little social distancing.”

The Reason it’s So Hard for Trump to Drain THe Swamp

The swamp does not wish to be drained. It actively resists being drained. It will not go down without a fight–an ugly, drawn-out fight.

Remember last week when Trump issued an executive order to end the use of “critical race theory” in government employee training programs? Well, the CDC saw that executive order and said, “Nah, we’re good. #OrangeManBad.”

This is from Christopher Rufo, the guy who (most likely) brought the issue of critical race theory to Trump’s attention when he went on Tucker Carlson’s show:

People who are upset by Trump not living up to all of his promises from the 2016 campaign: are you at least willing to admit it might not be as simple as “Trump betrayed us”?

The man is facing widespread and blatant insubordination and disobedience in the ranks. He has been for the past four years. He’s going against most of Congress, as well as most of the executive branch–in addition to the media and the entertainment industry.

He issued his critical race theory executive order, and an agency in the executive branch basically said, “Nah, screw that. We’re gonna still teach our employees to hate white people.”

Anyone who thought the war was won on November 8, 2016 was delusional. Trump winning the election was the start of the war against the Beltway Swamp. It remains ongoing and will continue for a long, long time.

The corruption runs deep in Washington. Very deep.

***

Now, luckily Rufo stayed vigilant and brought this to the attention of OMB Director Russ Vought who promptly shut down all the CDC’s skullduggery:

But don’t think this will make the Swamp give up. They will never stop trying to undermine, backstab and destroy this President. They believe with all their hearts that they are and should rightfully be completely and totally unaccountable to the will of the voters. They think they’re smarter, better and entitled to rule over us with unfettered and unchecked power. And nothing will change their minds. They have to be rooted out and sent packing–every last one of them.

Joe Biden Thinks It’s 2012 and Obama is Running for Re-election

Seriously:

“Obama-Biden administration rescued the auto industry, and helped them retool. We made solar energy cost-competitive with traditional energy and weatherized more than a million homes. This is just the beginning if we get re-elected.”

There is no good excuse or explanation for this. Joe Biden is literally senile. It’s not a conspiracy or a stretch or a mischaractetization. It cannot be denied any more. He thinks it’s 2012, he thinks Obama is still President, and he thinks the two of them are running for re-election.

What they’re doing to this man is cruel.

Director Judd Apatow: Hollywood Censoring Movies to Appease China

We all knew this intuitively, but now we have a major Hollywood Director coming out and confirming it:

All the big movie studios are in thrall to China. This chart is from 2015 but it shows that even five years ago, China was gaining rapidly on the US in terms of where Hollywood makes its money. I’m sure now in 2020 China is even closer to the US in terms of box office dollars:

Hollywood knows where their bread is buttered. As recently as 2007, China represented a negligible share of Hollywood’s box office dollars, and so there really wasn’t a great need to pander to China. But over the past decade, China has become Hollywood’s golden goose. And so Hollywood, like every other multinational business, has sold its soul to China.

And by the way, the major Hollywood movie studios also own cable news, meaning cable news is bowing to China as well: Disney owns ABC, Time Warner owns CNN, NBC and MSNBC are owned by Universal (which in turn is under Comcast), while CBS and Paramount are both owned by Viacom. If the movie studios are doing this, you can bet the cable news networks are doing it in their own way, too.

Fox sold its movie division (20th Century Fox) to Disney earlier this year, which in theory should mean Fox News is not as compromised as the other news channels are. But I’m sure China has its hooks in Fox in some other way.

This is what global “free trade” incentivizes: massive multinational corporations loyal to the almighty dollar rather than America. They will sell America out in a heartbeat if it means higher profits.

It’s “vulture capitalism” on a nationwide scale: megacorporations strip down and sell America’s assets to the highest international bidders.

“The Academy” Has Just Declared That All Hollywood Films Must Be Social Justice Propaganda

It used to be just strongly encouraged, now it’s mandatory: if you want your movie to be considered for an Academy Award (and what director doesn’t?), then it has to be social justice propaganda.

Starting in 2024, no film can be considered for Best Picture unless it satisfies two of the following four criteria (A, B, C & D). This is Standard A:

Either the lead or top supporting actor has to be a minority. If it’s an ensemble cast, 30% have to be either minorities, gay, female or disabled. Or the film itself has to be about “underrepresented people.”

Standard B:

This is similar to Standard A, but it’s for the people on the other side of the camera. The actors and the filmmakers must have Proper Minority Representation™.

Standard C:

You better not have any white interns.

Standard D:

The film’s marketing department must be led by minorities. Hollywood must now be focused on financially uplifiting minorities rather than making good films.

On top of that, all films considered for Best Picture MUST be propaganda now.

I hate to do the comparisons to Nazi Germany because they’re so commonplace and thereby diluted nowadays, but outside of Hitler, one of the most well-known Nazi officials from back then is Joseph Goebbels, the Nazis’ Minister of Propaganda. He turned the entire German film industry into blatant Nazi propaganda. This is the kind of thing we learn about in America and think, “It could never happen here.”

Well, maybe not. The Academy is literally dictating what movies should be about. If the movie’s message is not about how oppressed minorities are in America, then the Academy wants nothing to do with it.

Biden Was Reading From a Teleprompter During an Interview

He held up a framed picture and it reflected the text of the teleprompter in front of him:

Credit to @mbracemoore on Twitter for this.

Biden is in such bad shape that he has to read off a teleprompter during interviews with sycophantic late night “comics.”

There is zero chance this guy will debate. Unless they have some sort of miracle drug that makes his brain work again. He cannot even speak in impromptu settings.

Fauci: We’re Not Going Back to Normal Until The End of 2021

Dr. Anthony Fauci says that the nation must endure up to 15 additional months of torture even if there’s a vaccine released in the coming months:

Dr. Anthony Fauci just spilled the beans: contrary to the implicit promise numerous politicians made that COVID-19 restrictions would only last “until there’s an effective vaccine,” Fauci says the arrival of a vaccine won’t mean life will return to normal, perhaps for more than a year.

“If you’re talking about getting back to a degree of normality which resembles where we were prior to COVID, it’s going to be well into 2021, maybe even towards the end of 2021,” said the director of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases on Friday.

A safe and effective vaccine produced this quickly would be a stunning scientific accomplishment that could save thousands of lives. But Fauci warned that widespread distribution and getting “the majority, or more, of the population vaccinated and protected” won’t happen until perhaps the end 2021, and therefore means we cannot be free from oppressive lockdown measures until at least that point.

You miserable bastards think you’re just gonna go back to normal after only six months of lockdown? Well ol’ Fauci has news for you: you worthless peons are gonna be locked down for another 15 months.

Remember in 2016, when Trump was campaigning, the President of Mexico went on a profanity-laced tirade against Trump and the wall, and Trump’s response was “The wall just got 10 feet higher”?

That’s how Fauci is with the lockdowns: “Oh, you pieces of shit want to complain about the lockdowns? You want to go back to normal? Well guess what: the lockdown just got a year longer.”

However, I don’t believe this will actually happen. Maybe the diabolical Fauci wants it to happen, but he’s about to get overruled. Here’s my reasoning:

  1. Trump is going to be reelected, and when he is, he can give Fauci the boot and replace him with someone who actually has his head screwed on straight. Anyone who thinks it’s even remotely acceptable to keep the country under pandemic restrictions for nearly two full years does not belong in a position of power. It’s simply unacceptable.
  2. The politicians who are in control of the shut down orders will find little use for the virus after the election is over, and I’m sure they’ll be changing their tune after November 3. This national freakout over the coronavirus has been largely election year politicking and media-driven fearmongering, and once the election happens, the politicians in charge will probably see little benefit to keeping the Covid restrictions in place.
  3. If anything, they’ll be compelled to lift the restrictions and get things “back to normal” ASAP. Eventually, even the most bluepilled, brainwashed Fake News Believers (you know, the idiots that wear masks while driving by themselves) will decide that enough is enough. Maintaining Covid restrictions will become a political liability at some point in the near future, and that’s when we can expect the politicians to change their tune.

People are just not going to tolerate this for much longer. Once the politicians start to feel like there’s no upside to keeping the restrictions in place, they’ll vanish faster than they were imposed.

Plus, we just got some wonderful news today out of Pennsylvania: a federal judge has ruled the state’s shutdown orders to be unconstitutional:

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A federal judge on Monday struck down Gov. Tom Wolf’s pandemic restrictions that required people to stay at home, placed size limits on gatherings and ordered “non-life-sustaining” businesses to shut down, calling them unconstitutional. U.S. District Judge William Stickman IV sided with plaintiffs that included hair salons, drive-in movie theaters, a farmer’s market vendor, a horse trainer and several Republican officeholders who sued as individuals.

Stickman, an appointee of President Donald Trump, wrote in his ruling that the Wolf administration’s pandemic policies have been overreaching, arbitrary and violated citizens’ constitutional rights.

The governor’s efforts to slow the spread of the coronavirus “were undertaken with the good intention of addressing a public health emergency,” Stickman wrote. “But even in an emergency, the authority of government is not unfettered.”

Courts had consistently rejected challenges to Wolf’s power to order businesses to close during the pandemic, and many other governors, Republican and Democrat, undertook similar measures as the virus spread across the country.

Wolf has lifted many of the restrictions since the lawsuit was filed in May, allowing businesses to reopen and canceling a statewide stay-at-home order. But his administration has maintained capacity restrictions and limitations on alcohol sales at bars and restaurants. The state has also imposed a gathering limit of more than 25 people for events held indoors and more than 250 people for those held outside.

If things don’t start opening up soon, expect more and more lawsuits like this. Thankfully, Trump has been stocking the federal judiciary with judges like Stickman, so we should expect more ruling like the one in Pennsylvania. The precedent has been established.

Eventually I’m sure this will end up before the Supreme Court to decide the matter for good, nationwide. However, I’m not sure that this is a good thing considering Chief Justice Roberts has gone full swamp and basically become a Democrat.

But people are going to turn against the lockdowns in due time.

I apologize for not keeping up with the blog the past several days, but I’ve been sick lately and haven’t been up to the task. It turned out to be Covid, funny enough.

Now that I have actually had the virus and know what it’s like, it has only made me more adamant that this is all bullshit and we need to return to normal immediately.

I had the flu last year and it was significantly worse than Covid. The worst of my symptoms only lasted a few days, and honestly once I started taking ibuprofen, I felt much, much better almost to the point of not feeling sick at all.

Covid is the flu. I’ve had both, and I can tell you with confidence: Covid is the flu.

Maybe not for old people, but for the vast majority of Americans, Covid is no different than the flu. And it is completely unacceptable to treat it like anything else. We don’t shut the country down for flu season, and we shouldn’t have shut the country down for this.

This is not something we need to shut the entire country down over. The end of 2021 is completely out of the question. There will be a full-blown revolt if that is the case, and there should be.

Americans Sour on Sports

Professional sports had a +20 favorability rating last August. Now it’s -10:

I’m sure this has a lot to do with the fact that sports have become massively politicized over the past four months–the BLACK LIVES MATTER imagery everywhere, the anthem kneeling, the constant lecturing and sanctimony from players, coaches and sports media pundits. It’s all part of the reason Americans have turned their backs on sports.

But I want to draw your attention to the partisan split on viewing sports favorably: last August, Republicans were +11 on sports, now they’re -35 for a shift of -46 away from sports. Independents went from +26 to -10, a shift of -36. And Democrats have gone from +16 to +11, a shift of just -5

One of these things is not like the other. Republicans and Independents seem to be on the same page as it pertains to souring on sports, while Democrats have hardly budged.

I keep saying: the signs of a coming big Trump win are there, you just have to read between the lines.

Election polls keep showing Biden winning independents, but polls like this show us that’s probably not true. When it comes to the Hard Left Turn seen in American sports in recent months (really since Kaepernick first kneeled in 2016), Independents and Republicans are basically on the same page, while Democrats are on their own.

But even Democrats are turning against sports. Not a lot of them, but you would have figured that Democrats’ opinions of sports would have improved in the wake of all the BLM propaganda. It hasn’t; it has slightly decreased.

It’s too much for even Democrats.

I don’t understand why the sports world would want to become politicized. Sports is supposed to be an escape, a haven from the messed up world we live in. Beyond that, it’s just bad business to alienate half the country. I don’t know if sports leagues epically miscalculated and assumed BLM was way more broadly popular and uncontroversial than it really is, or if they have been fully co-opted by the radical left and repurposed into yet another propaganda factory even though they know it will cost them their audiences. I really don’t know, but I’d assume it’s the latter.

Just like the riots, the Hard Left Turn in sports has backfired spectacularly on the Democrats.

This Week’s Fake Trump Scandal Is… He “Downplayed” The Coronavirus!

Expect a fake scandal a week from now until the election. The media is in full-on desperation mode now with under 8 weeks to go.

Last week it was the laughable accusation that Trump Hates The Troops, this week it’s “Trump downplayed the Coronavirus back in March and PEOPLE DIED!”

This all stems from a phone call between Trump and “journalist” Bob Woodward from March 19, which Woodward recorded and sat on until today:

That’s the scandal, I guess.

Thoughts:

  1. If Bob Woodward thought it was such a big deal that Trump was downplaying the virus, and that the public needed to know and that it was literally a matter of life and death, doesn’t that make Bob Woodward a horrible person for sitting on this tape for nearly six months? Shouldn’t Bob Woodward have turned around immediately after that phone call and exposed his recording to the world?
  2. No, because the point was to sit on it and release it close to the election.
  3. If anyone is guilty of mischaracterizing the virus, it’s the media for “up-playing” how deadly it really is. It was widely believed in the early months of this year that COVID-19 was way worse than it actually is. As time has passed we now know it’s not nearly as deadly and dangerous as we initially thought. It is mainly older people at risk, the death rate is not 5%, and there was never any need to panic over this virus. We massively overreacted to this virus and should have reversed course and gone back to normal months ago.
  4. Trump’s biggest mistake was speaking to the media at all. Why would he think he could speak in confidence to Bob Woodward? The best thing Trump could do would be to completely ignore and marginalize the “mainstream” media. Exclude NYT, CNN, WaPo and the rest from the White House. Do not treat them like legitimate news organizations, because they aren’t. They’re willfully dishonest propaganda outlets who are actively working to destroy the country.
  5. As far as I can tell, the only thing the media is freaking out about is that Trump downplayed the virus in terms of his public comments. This does not mean his administration was not taking the virus seriously behind the scenes. After all, he banned all travel from China back in January.
  6. So Trump is guilty of not inciting a panic among the people? Guess he should have just gone on TV and said, “We have done our best to contain this Biblical plague, but it is too much. Every man for himself. Spend what little time you have remaining with your loved ones. Maketh thy peace with thy God whilst thou still can.”

I don’t even want to get into this nonsense again. I’ve already done a long write-up on Trump’s handling of the coronavirus, and America’s numbers are not out of the ordinary at all worldwide.

In fact, the only places in America where the virus was handled poorly: Democrat-run New York and New Jersey. The media’s darling Andrew Cuomo and his pal NJ Governor Phil Murphy have been the two worst handlers of the coronavirus on the planet. That is not an exaggeration.

Here’s the list of the highest per-one-million death rates in the world by country:

San Marino, an island of 34,000 people, has the highest death rate in the world at 1,237. Outside of them, the highest country death rate in the world is Peru, at 911 per million. The deaths-per-million rate in the US as a whole is 588.

Now have a look at New York and New Jersey when broken out individually:

1,816 deaths per million for NJ.

1,701 for New York.

That’s the real scandal.

West Coast To Secede if Trump Wins?

Earlier today I highlighted a ridiculous article on Daily Beast entitled “The Left Secretly Preps for MAGA Violence After Election Day” which fretted about Trump supporters rioting if Trump loses–even though Biden supporters are the ones who have been rioting for the past four months.

The article’s headline was ridiculous enough, but it also includes this interesting tidbit that these leftwing groups have discussed in their “war games” scenarios over a disputed 2020 election: they would “encourage Western states, particularly California but also Oregon and Washington, to secede from the Union” if Trump wins the election but loses the popular vote:

  1. First of all, just because the “progressive groups” are idiots and can’t understand that the popular vote doesn’t matter does not mean they are entitled to remedy if they continually lose the electoral college while winning the popular vote. The President is elected by the states. What part of that is so hard to understand?
  2. Zero chance we should grant any of their demands. They have no leverage. What are they going to do if Trump doesn’t give them what they want, riot more? They’re doing that now and it’s completely backfiring on them. The riots are turning more and more people into Trump voters.
  3. Puerto Rico and DC getting statehood would just guarantee the Democrats at least 6 more electoral votes every election, along with at least 2 more Democratic representatives and four more Democratic Senators. Splitting California into five states would give the Democrats 8 more Senators for a total of 12 new Democratic Senators. Keep dreaming.
  4. Finally, if they really want the West coast to secede from the Union, that would be wonderful. That would solve so many of this country’s problems. Can you imagine if Hollywood was a different country and we didn’t have to deal with them anymore? And Portland and Seattle, too. That would be a dream come true.
  5. If those three states did secede, then all the red counties within them would immediately secede and rejoin the US:

Portland and Seattle would be little more than City States within a sea of red. California will lose the Inland Empire and the coast will be basically all blue. But we can make do without it.

Democrats, however, could not.

Hillary’s popular vote margin in the 2016 election was 2,868,519 million votes nationwide.

She won California by 4,269,978 votes that year.

Without California, she would have lost the popular vote by 1,401,459 votes. And subtract California’s 55 electoral votes from her 232, giving her a paltry 177, which would have made the 242 electoral votes you’d need to win the presidency in a California-less US even further out of reach.

Democrats are screwed if California secedes. It’s an empty threat. In fact, Republicans would probably welcome it.

All of these mainstream media stories with #Concerned titles like “OMG What Are We Going to DO if Trump Refuses to Admit He Lost the Election?” are complete BS.

What they’re really saying is, “How Are We Going to Gaslight The Nation When Trump Calls us Out For Trying to Steal the Election?” That’s what they’re really wondering. They are trying to establish the narrative that any Trump win will be illegitimate.

The real question is, “How bad of a meltdown will the left have when Trump wins again?”
