In The News for Friday, August 7, 2020

·        YouTube can’t handle the truth. This has got to stop. It has become just too blatant. Here’s a classic example. Twitter staffer who announced Trump censorship used to work for Kamala Harris.

·        Tom Cotton introduces Campus Free Speech Act, McConnell signs on. It’s about time.

·        So how’s that other foot taste, Joe? I hope he changes his socks every day.

·        Rumor is that Durham is wrapping up his investigation with an interview of John Brennan. In the words of Flounder, Oh Boy! Is This Great!

·        Good advice from an attorney who may well be disbarred before all this is over. Weissman urges DOJ officials to resist Barr investigations. This guy represents all that is wrong with our justice system and with unethical lawyers.

·        Susan Rice’s son was the president of the Stanford College Young Republicans. There’s hope for the Rice family.  

·        An Op/Ed from Gen. Michael Flynn.

Decide how you can act within your abilities. Stand up and state your beliefs. Be proud of who you are and what you stand for. And face, head-on, those community “leaders” who are willing to allow dark forces to go beyond peaceful protests and destroy and violate your safety and security.

·        Sorry, Glenn Reynolds has it right. The prisons are full of people who do something violent in a “moment of madness.” And the cemeteries are full of their victims. These two were better prepared than most to act sensibly in the face of temptation, or should have been.

·        When you consider that the local newspaper didn’t even cover the event, the turnout was phenomenal. Asheville’s ‘Back The Blue.’ The pendulum is swinging back in the right direction.

·        I’ve commented before about Jesse Goldberg, an incoming professor at Auburn University who is a complete nitwit. He was hired, by the way, to teach African-American Literature courses. Not making this up. Auburn is “considering options available to the university.” How about dismissal? What’s so complicated? Seems like a very simple, common sense solution to me.

·        This may be satire, but it is grounded in truth as most satire is. Riotous Protesters Suddenly Realize They’re All White People.

·        Democrats planted false stories in effort to derail Biden investigations, Grassley says. He names the usual suspects. Schumer, Pelosi, Warner and Schiff.

·        You don’t say? NYT discretely deletes Chinese-funded propaganda advertorials.

·        Insanity Wrap #22. It’s crazy out there.

·        The American public holds media in contempt. The public is right.  Here’s a good reason why. The Washington Post, in an outright lie, rand an article with this headline: Trump ordered Federal forces to quell Portland riots protests. But the chaos ended as soon as they left. Really? It’s no wonder their “journalists” are held in contempt.
