Ron DeSantis Blasts Vaccine Messaging: ‘Vaccines Are Effective, You’re Immune, So Act Immune’

by Stacey Lennox, PJ Media:

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis got a ridiculous fact check from the local NBC station in Orlando following comments he made on Friday. During a press conference in Lakeland, Fla., DeSantis blasted messaging for the COVID-19 vaccine:

The messaging on this has been horrific. The message should be “get a vaccine because it’s good for you to do it. It works, you’re not going to have to be doing anything like, abnormally. You can live your life.” I mean that has got to be what the message is.

How Empires End

by Jeff Thomas, International Man:

Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.” – Thomas Jefferson

Histories are generally written by academics. They, quite naturally, tend to focus on the main events: the wars and the struggles between leaders and their opponents (both external and internal). Whilst these are interesting stories to read, academics, by their very nature, often overlook the underlying causes for an empire’s decline.

“Asymmetry of Indulgence”—Why Black Cops Can Kill When White Cops Can’t, and Why No-One Cares About Mexicans (Or Whites)

by John Derbyshire, The Unz Review:

Earlier, by Steve Sailer: Nope, No Riot in Chicago Last Night Over Mexican Kid Shot by a Cop

Here’s a phrase due for an airing: “asymmetry of indulgence.”

That phrase was coined by conservative British journalist Ferdinand Mount. He was writing about how Leftist politicians get a pass, an indulgence, when they speak in the globalist-universalist diction of Karl Marx and Mao Tse-tung; but when a conservative dares to murmur that perhaps rampant multiculturalism is not a great idea, he is denounced as Literally Hitler.

So Now The Left Likes Guns, Perhaps They Always Have?

by Tim Kirby, Strategic Culture:

If you give people the freedom to have rope, on occasion someone will hang themselves with it, that is just the way the world works.

After a few years of racial violence, protesting that many consider rioting and parts of American cities being set ablaze in the runup to the big 2020 election, the Left may be rethinking its attitude towards guns… well at least for the moment while they need them. An interesting look at the rise of “Socialist” gun ownership in America by RT poses the interesting question – if the “pro-gun lobby is the (exclusive) domain of right-wing, conservative Republicans in America”? The answer to this lies not so much in the guns themselves (as almost all issues involving firearms) but the overall world view of those who hold them dearly or fear even the thought of them.

YouTube CEO wins ‘Free Expression Award’ sponsored by YouTube, then boasts how platform censors content creators

from RT:

Susan Wojcicki, the CEO of Google’s video platform YouTube, was awarded the Freedom Forum Institute’s ‘Free Expression Award’ on Friday in a ceremony sponsored by her own company – despite YouTube’s track record of censorship.

In the digital awards ceremony, YouTube video creator Molly Burke praised Wojcicki as a free speech leader before the YouTube CEO detailed in her acceptance speech how much the platform censors its users.

“The freedoms we have, we really can’t take for granted,” Wojcicki declared, adding that “we really have to make sure we’re protecting them in every way possible.”

Russia & Belarus Say US-Backed “Assassination” & “Coup” Attempt Against Lukashenko Thwarted

from ZeroHedge:

Russian and Belarusian state sources are alleging that a major assassination and “coup” attempt of Belarusian president Alexander Lukashenko has been thwarted by security services, which has further been dubbed in state media as an “armed insurrection” attempt which may have had the backing of the United States.

However, details surrounding the alleged ‘plot’ remain murky and it doesn’t appear that anything actually close to an ‘insurrection’ ever got off the ground. Instead, multiple Belarussian officials were reportedly arrested on vague suspicions of treasonous plotting. Russia’s FSB is also widely reported to have detained two conspirators in Moscow for their association with the plot.

Stacking the Court Pelosi Backs Down

by Martin Armstrong, Armstrong Economics:

COMMENT: Marty; your piece on the Supreme Court made a difference. Printouts were circulating around the hill. Pelosi refused to bring it to a vote because all she has is a two vote majority. Great job.

REPLY: Nice to hear. But as in 1937, there were Democrats that would not go along with that Roosevelt agenda as well. My piece would not change anyone’s mind. People believe what they want to believe. I could argue all day and provide facts, but it will never change the mind of an opponent who is vested in their belief. Even Julius Caesar noted that one.

Let The Heads Start Exploding In 3……2……1….. – The Fight Against Radical Liberalism Begins As Two New “America First” Start-Ups Have The Liberal Media Freaking Out

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

Between a new pro-Trump “America First” Caucus, and the upcoming launch of MyPillow CEO, Mike Lindell’s, launch of a social media platform called “Frank” to counter the radical liberalism of other social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook, and even YouTube, liberal media is ‘freaking out.”

The bigger picture here is the utter hypocrisy of whining so loudly about these two things happening currently.

Those same voices have no issue with liberal congressional caucuses or liberal social media platforms, specifically Twitter, Facebook, and the video platform YouTube, banning, suspending and locking accounts for nothing more than wrong-think aka conservative opinion.

Disclaimer: This is the conservative news happening now, not an endorsement of any social media platform or group, just an honest opinion of  conservatives are fighting back against radical liberalism because RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) won’t.

AS BORDER CRISIS WITH RUSSIA ESCALATES, UKRAINE PRESIDENT ZELENSKY BYPASSES BIDEN AND CALLS ON EMMANUEL MACRON TO BRING PEACE TO SITUATION

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

The massive build-up of Russian troops along the border with Ukraine has sparked new tensions in eastern Ukraine, where government forces have been battling pro-Russian separatists since 2014. “Ukraine’s sovereignty is under threat,” Macron’s office said heading into the talks Friday, adding: “All our work is aimed at avoiding an escalation and defusing tensions.” Zelensky’s meeting with the leaders of France and Germany, who have been mediators in the conflict since 2015, comes as Ukraine accuses Russia of threatening to destroy it.

WOOPS… BETTER CHECK THE EXPIRATION DATE…

by Joseph P. Farrell, Giza Death Star:

For quite some time I and others have been trying to warn about such people as Mr. Globaloney, Mr. Central Bankster, Ernst Stavro Klaus von Blohschwab of the World Economic Fleecing …er… World Economic Forum and their push for digital “currencies” and so on. Among our concerns have been the following: (1) no cyber-system is ultimately secure; (2) digital currencies are a single point of failure, as they are potentially vulnerable to cyber attacks such as (a) hacking (or cyber warfare), (b) catastrophic hardware failure due to such causes as electro-magnetic pulse, actual physical sabotage, or power outages, and so on, and (3) such “currencies” are when coupled to a system of “social credit” not currencies at all, but corporate coupons whose “value” can be adjusted at the whim of Mr. Central Bankster, and so on.
