Domestic terrorists? What domestic terrorists? – We led Friday’s News Roundup with the FBI’s arrest of one Jason Charter, a BLM/Antifa organizer who led the effort that tried and failed to take down the Andrew Jackson statue in Washington, DC’s Lafayette Square last month. That seemed like an important story with all of the media-fed, Democrat-organized social unrest taking place in the country, right?
It turns out that, other than Fox News and OAN, not a single other TV “news” outlet spent a second of air time covering that story. That’s right: ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, and CNN are all so down with the terrorist cause in our country that they refuse to report on the arrests of these terrorists when they take place.
In the minds of the corrupt editors and reporters at those outlets, it is far more important to spend their time spreading more panic porn about the Wuhan virus than it is to inform the public that many of the people who burned and looted large swaths of a dozen major American cities during June are being brought to justice.
Because if a story is good for Trump, it’s bad, bad, bad for the corrupt news media.
Speaking of stories that are good for Trump and really bad for the media… – A new study from the International Journal of Infectious Diseases finds that Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), which the corrupt news media spend months demonizing and lying about after Trump endorsed its use, does indeed save the lives of people who have contracted COVID-19.
From a report at the Wall Street Journal:
Coronavirus patients treated with the drug hydroxychloroquine within the first two days of admission were more likely to survive than patients who received other treatment, according to the study, which was published online by the International Journal of Infectious Diseases.
The study, which analyzed medical records of 2,541 Covid-19 patients, suggests that hydroxychloroquine can be effective if given during the early stages of contracting the virus and at the right dose, the researchers said. Other studies, however, haven’t found a benefit, and federal health officials withdrew the drug’s authorization for emergency use.
Patients whose records were analyzed were given 400 mg of hydroxychloroquine twice on the first day, followed by 200 mg twice a day the following four days.
“We gave it early,” said Marcus Zervos, head of the infectious-diseases division for Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, who co-authored the study. “If it’s given late in therapy, it’s going to have relatively more limited benefits.”
In other words, this study verified exactly the studies out of France and South Korea, as well as anecdotal information from doctors around the U.S. who have had tremendous results with treating patients with HCQ early in the course of the virus. We knew all of this three full months ago, but the focused campaign by corrupt media outlets like CNN, NBC and the New York Time to demonize this drug intimated many doctors to avoid its use, no doubt resulting in many deaths that would have otherwise been avoided.
The simple fact of the matter is that the American news media has blood on its hands over this safe, effective and cheap drug. But then, our corrupt media has so much blood on its hands these days that this episode is just par for the course.
If we can’t find some way to effectively hold these corrupt editors and reporters accountable for their actions, our country will eventually die. They are a gigantic cancer that is rapidly metastasizing across our culture.
How to know President Trump gave a great and effective speech… – President Trump delivered a soaring and inspiring patriotic speech at Mount Rushmore last night. Here is how the news-fakers at the New York Times characterized it:
Let’s remember that the New York Times has rolled out the terms “dark” and “divisive” at Trump’s inauguration speech and every one of his State of the Union messages. After each and every one of those speeches, the President’s public approval ratings went up.
Dear NYTimes editorial board: Your elementary school word template is failing.
Speaking of failing… – A group of protesters managed to delay the timing of the Mt. Rushmore ceremony for awhile as they blocked the road up to the monument ahead of the President’s arrival.
From a story at Fox News:
About 15 protesters were arrested Friday after they blocked an access road to Mount Rushmore hours before President Trump was scheduled to give remarks to kick off Independence Day weekend.
According to the Associated Press, the protest group was mostly made up of Native Americans protesting that South Dakota’s Black Hills were taken from the Lakota people against treaty agreements.
Note: Anyone who watched the protest action live knows that the AP characterization of the makeup of the protest group is completely false. The group in fact was made up mainly of the same kind of pasty-white entitled Millennials who we see dominating every Antifa and BLM-organized riot. But hey, lying outright to the American public is what the AP and the rest of our corrupt news media does.
More from the story:
One group parked three vans across the road and removed the tires from two of the vehicles to make it more difficult to remove them. Several demonstrators climbed on top of the vans chanting “Land back!”
The sheriff’s office said attendees had been told to arrive early and should have been past the roadblock by the time the standoff began. However, the Rapid City Journal reported that some motorists who had tickets for Friday evening’s fireworks show were unable to get through the protests and were standing by their cars watching the standoff.
The Journal also reported that law enforcement in riot gear as well as members of the National Guard had declared an unlawful assembly.
Police later used pepper spray on several protesters to break up the standoff and tow trucks were brought in to remove the vans blocking the road. Arrests were made after protesters ignored a police-imposed deadline to leave.
About that police-imposed deadline: The live video feed showed that the police present on the scene sat by and did nothing as the Antifa/BLM group showed up and blocked the road. It also showed that it took almost two full hours before the police finally brought in tow trucks and started using pepper spray to clear the damn road, actions that could easily have been achieved far more quickly.
This is unacceptable.
People in this country have an absolute right to protest in public, and that right must be protected. But people do not have any right at all to block streets, disrupt, vandalize and loot businesses or tear down statues. Those acts will only end when police are freed up to take quick and decisive action to end them.
Enough. America has had enough.
Have a Happy Independence Day anyway!
