The Essence of the Democrat's Take on Minneapolis

Minneapolis Riot


Just a Cringe? Where is the outrage?

© 2020 Jim Spence - Democrat U.S. House Representative James Clyburn admitted that he “cringed” when he saw the video of Joe Biden lecturing black people while making an appearance on a national radio show last week.
Why would Clyburn cringe at something a candidate he is planning on campaigning for said? It is because Biden went so far in his condescension towards black voters that he actually said any African American voter who might be weighing his or her voting options (Trump or Biden), “Ain’t Black.”
It is curious that James Clyburn was not angry. Instead he was merely cringing like we have all done when our child does something juvenile that embarrasses us. Clyburn should have been seething with anger, but he wasn’t, simply because he is part of a large group of black Democrats who live off the block vote that Biden was desperately trying to keep in the proverbial, "take that block vote for granted," corral.
That the following people are not black is news to them: Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, Herman Cain, Star Parker, Clarence Thomas, Dr. Benjamin Carson, Larry Elder, Armstrong Williams, Alan Keyes, Alveda King, Burgess Owens, Condoleezza Rice, Tim Scott, Shelby Steele, Alan West… get the idea. You can bet they are all weighing their personal voting options. Additionally, none of the men and women listed above, would ever dawn a phony “black accent,” when addressing a primarily black audience to demonstrate their “authenticity.” Yet we have many video tapes of Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, and even Barrack Obama doing so.
At some point the Democrat’s blatant con job on America’s black community will stop. Instead of the lies taught in our mostly corrupt public-school systems, all American children will be taught the truth about our country. And the truth is this: While our nation has its flaws, we live in the most tolerant and open society on earth. While we Americans are constantly getting lectured by the British Broadcasting Co. and other entities in Europe about racial intolerance, nobody seems to have ever gotten around to asking these lecturers on tolerance why the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Holland, Greece, Germany, Belgium, or anywhere else in European Union have NEVER elected a black as prime minister or president. The same goes for Japan, China, or Russia. Talk is cheap and race baiting is stale.
Recently, American “reporters” of Asian descent have been openly attacking Trump because he is constantly reminding the press the coronavirus was unleashed on the world by China. Apparently, it is OK in the minds of Trump-hating reporters for the Democrats running the higher education systems to intentionally limit the number of Asian-Americans admitted to the top universities, but it is racist when Trump reminds us of how we got into this virus mess that is killing so many people.
Here is the truth about race in America. Democrats constantly drum up racial paranoia for political advantage in our country. But Joe Biden is so plagued by dementia he has forgotten the do’s and don’ts of “playing the race card.” The proper way to play the race card is to infer all whites who don’t vote Democrat are supremacists. This is how you divide our society by color. The improper way to play the race card is to be openly condescending of black people who are weighing their vote carefully. That is why James Clyburn cringed. Biden was manipulating black voters improperly instead of doing it properly.
Biden is an old 78. He does not remember the playbook of Democrats who have dominated places like my hometown of Baltimore, as well as Detroit, Chicago, St. Louis, and many other cities. In these places voters have elected no other candidates except Democrats, for generations. In St. Louis where ten black people were shot and four killed over the weekend, voters have not selected a Republican mayor since 1949. Still the Democrat mayor of St. Louis was lamenting the lack of social distancing in the Ozarks over the weekend, instead of lamenting the horrific black-on-black crime under her watch. In Chicago where black-on-black violence is a plague, voters have not chosen a Republican mayor since 1931.
Let us be clear. Democrats, including Joe Biden, define black voters as their property. “You belong to us, or you ain’t Black,” is the cringe worthy interpretation of what Joe Biden said last week.
Donald Trump is willing to compete for the black vote and his poll numbers in the black community are soaring. This reality scares the hell out of Democrats who thought they held title to the minds of those human beings.
Who knew that blacks are NOT all the "same?"


If Trump is for it, they are against it

© 2020 Jim Spence - America is morphing before our very eyes. It isn't pretty. There is no professional basketball, hockey, baseball, or golf. The Coca Cola 600 was run in Charlotte in front of nobody last week. Horses are racing at Churchill Downs and other large venues, However, there are no fans there. Schools have been closed for months and nobody seems to know when or how they will reopen. Everywhere you in go in America, businesses are closed. If they are open, people are wearing masks. Sorry folks, that is not my America. Is everyone ready to settle for this?
When you think about the images we have seen from Asia over the years, particularly China, masks have been a way of life there. Why?
The air is shamelessly dirty in China. Additionally, most public places, including transportation facilities, eateries, and shopping areas in China are notoriously unsanitary. Coronavirus is not the first disease originating in China that has spread to the west and done serious damage. However, Wuhan Coronavirus does seem to be the most contagious.
Given the misinformation that came from the World Health Organization, after its “experts” visited China to check out the seriousness of the virus, everybody is mad as hell at both the W.H.O. and the Chinese Communist government. Back in early January, the W.H.O. announced that the virus could NOT be transmitted from human-to-human. That is tantamount to "health experts" saying that stage four cancer is not serious. Leaked memos out of China make it clear that the Xi dictatorship made a conscious decision to mislead the world about the virus. Was the spread of the virus allowed intentionally, or simply downplayed? Nobody knows because the Chinese dictatorship lies about everything. Many nations are furious with China. Some are suing. The damages are in the trillions.
Oddly, while almost everyone is unhappy with China and the W.H.O. the American Democrats are now DEFENDING the CHINESE DICTATORSHIP. Simply put, Democrats are scrambling to jumble up the American voting public’s understanding of how irresponsibly the Chinese behaved from the outset of this pandemic. It is all part of their latest scheme to win in November.
It is important to put what the Democrats have been doing about the virus in context. Since the election outcome in 2016, and even before, Democrat’s visceral hatred of Donald Trump has been off the charts, resulting in increasingly bizarre behavior. So much did Democrats hate Trump, the Obama gang used bogus information manufactured by Hillary Clinton and the DNC to manipulate the judicial system into allowing the FBI and CIA to do electronic surveillance of the GOP. This conduct is Nixonian, because like Richard Nixon, Barack Obama was so obsessed with his perceived enemies he went so far as to use the machinery of the federal government to sabotage the candidacy (and then the presidency) of his opponent.
Democrats have gone from being merely overly obsessed with their dislike of Trump, to embracing uncontrolled hatred and rage.
When independent investigations of Russian collusion allegations showed that the Democrat's contrived narratives were totally bogus, and their scam failed, they went straight to the Ukrainian scam/impeachment proceedings. Of course this scam failed too. In fact, it backfired. Trump's poll numbers surged as the public saw through the dirty tactics of Pelosi, Schumer, and Co..
It seems that whatever Trump is for…..Democrats now feel pathologically compelled to be against. A columnist at The Nation suggested last week that we should all vote for Biden, even if it turned out he assaulted female aides and ate babies. Really?
A recent poll showed that 36% of Americans would be "less likely" to get vaccinated for protection against the virus, if Trump spoke favorably about such a vaccination. That 36% segment, is actually roughly the size of the Democratic Party within the American electorate.
This week New York Governor Andrew Cuomo began a new anti-Trump rant narrative based on something very stupid. Over and over Cuomo said, "European virus." He said it more than a half a dozen times at one of his press conferences. It was for effect. What effect?
It would seem Andrew Cuomo now thinks because Trump has continued to point out the fact that thousands of people have died because of all the deceptive ways China mislead the world about the virus, if he (Cuomo) simply keeps calling it a "European" virus instead, and other Democrats and pals in the media repeat it, the utterances will eventually negate the fact that the virus originated in Wuhan, China.
This sort of behavior goes beyond dirty politics. It is downright odd.
The insanity goes on and on. Trump announced during one of his press briefings this week that he is taking Hydroxychloroquine as a virus inhibitor. The facts are clear. There have been many studies suggesting the drug can inhibit Coronavirus, just as it inhibits malaria. However, despite the fact the drug has been approved as safe for human beings for decades, the Democrats have collectively decided as a political party, to pretend Trump is crazy for taking this drug, because it is suddenly and almost mystically "unsafe" and therefore risky. From the top to the bottom of the Democratic Party, and with the media chiming in to assist, progressives behave like parrots pretending that Trump’s doctor, who prescribed this drug that is taken routinely all around the world, is engaging in blatant medical malpractice.
Again, the context of all this is critical. If Trump is for anything, there is a pathological need for Democrats to be against it. This is unhealthy. Especially for those wanting to get on with life instead of raging all the time.
We are at a strange moment in global history. China has now proven itself a danger to virtually every citizen in every nation on earth. There is an URGENT need for MAJOR changes in China. This fact is irrefutable, and it goes hand in hand with most dictatorships. China’s gross misconduct towards the global community has destroyed life as billions of people knew it. They are bullies.
It is remarkable that Trump was actually feuding with the Chinese and their one-way trade policies long before the Chinese dictatorship either intentionally or negligently poisoned the world. Surely if police detectives were investigating the spread of the virus as a crime, there would be no nation with a greater “motive” to hurt America....than China.
Oddly, because Trump has pulled no punches with the W.H.O. or China, Democrats have decided to "defend" China and the W.H.O. In their strange world, Democrats now think if they are successful in protecting China, they can shift blame to Europe and eventually to Trump.
Make no mistake Democrats want to con voters into blaming TRUMP for China's gross misconduct. However, like the failed Russian collusion scam, the failed impeachment scam, and Democrat’s notorious rejections of travel bans and social distancing guidelines at the outset of the pandemic, attempting to dupe the independent segment of the voting public on China will not work either.
So.....while 36% of Americans may well refuse a virus vaccination to protect themselves if Trump speaks positively about it, that still leaves 64% of America that is not quite that dumb.....let alone so obviously and pathologically obsessed with hatred they will do dangerous things.

If you are a minority of one, the truth is still the truth

© 2020 Jim Spence - My father was a trial lawyer. He loved to go to court. And he often defended criminals who were guilty as sin or argued for dubious personal injury claims.
It is no secret that most lawyers are relatively clever people. They are trained in law schools all over the nation to argue in favor of things they do not actually believe. Twisting the minds of juries, is the ultimate goal of any lawyer who represents a client who has a weak case based on the “facts” and the “truth.”
Clearly most lawyers embrace the mindset of the ancient Roman Governor of Judea, Pontius Pilate. Pilate asked of Jesus when he was brought before the governor, “What is truth?” Pilate did not ask what is “the” truth? Instead, he asked, what "is" truth? It was a very cynical question, indicating that Pilate believed there are always more than one valid version of the “truth.” This indicates Pilate felt the idea of "truth" was so malleable, the term itself, was a misnomer.
The beauty of governing Judea for Pilate was that “truth” was whatever Rome said it was. And by proxy, Pilate himself, thanks to his appointment by the emperor of Rome, could unilaterally decide truth, and take any action he deemed necessary for the benefit of the state, based on his arbitrary findings.
Until recently, Americans, living in a free nation, with democratically elected governors, and constitutional protections, enjoyed a life where it was more difficult for a would-be Pontius Pilate to simply issue edicts that have the same effect as “law,” without first persuading legislatures to pass laws.
Fortunately for those making an effort to be intellectually honest, history is replete with famously truthful men and women who understood the dangers of all power seeking politicians who are adept at peddling falsehoods disguised as truth. Ardent free-market capitalist Ayn Rand comes to mind as being in this camp, as do two famous socialists, Mahatma Gandhi and George Orwell, who also understood how oppression though manipulation works.
It is telling that we can readily find a capitalist and two socialists who were both able to produce profoundly wise observations on the importance of assigning virtue to facts and truth. All three were witnesses to ways in which the state used the media to produce propaganda and manipulate facts to produce the desired political outcomes.
In response to a cynical reporter who was commenting on the difficulty of overcoming the vast powers of the state to suppress facts, Mahatma Gandhi said, "Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is the truth.” It was Gandhi’s way of reminding the reporter that even if the vast majority of the public is deluded, this does not alter the truth.
George Orwell said, when commenting on the astonishing power contained in state sponsored propaganda, “Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing.”
It is naive to think these processes, which are fundamental to power seeking human beings, are not present all around us.
In America, while the details of how journalism schools influence students these days are endless, it is a pity that from the top of management to bottom level reporters, the news media is a business that is 70% political advocacy and 30% show business. For several decades media outlets such as CNN, NBC, NPR, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, the New York Times, and the Washington Post, have abandoned best practices in journalism. Instead of a honest search to determine and report only facts, these organizations routinely follow pre-determined narratives and produce infomercials for Democrats.
Alternatively, in recognition of a neglected market, based on narrative based infomercial operations at CNN, NBC, NPR, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, the New York Times, and the Washington Post, Fox News pounced on the under-served GOP segment more than twenty years ago. The market was wide open and Fox grabbed half the viewers.
This begs many questions for independents. In this polarized advocacy and show biz-based media environment: 1) What is the truth? 2) How do we sort out news coverage for facts when Fox presents one version and CNN, NBC, NPR, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, the New York Times, and the Washington Post present a total contradiction?
Tearing human minds to pieces and putting those minds together again in new shapes of the media outlet's choosing ALSO means engaging in selective reporting. The omitting of stories that cannot be easily modified is a common practice associated with producing infomercials.
Take the recent fiasco this week related to Joe Biden’s comments on black voters. Biden said, “If you have a problem figuring out if you’re for me or for Trump, you ain’t black.”
Many of the news outlets (except Fox) simply omitted reporting on this outrageous statement, which essentially suggests that authentic blacks are a one-size-fits-all group of monolithic thinkers. Biden was indicating he thought, real black Americans are 100% ALIKE when it comes to political philosophy and vote casting. It was such a condescending statement it could not be made to fit the pro-Biden narrative. So, CNN, NBC, NPR, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, the New York Times, and the Washington Post mostly omitted coverage or worked feverishly after the fact, to mitigate the implications.
The independent thinker must survey a wide range of reports rather than look to the same biased news sources dominating the American media landscape. In previous columns, it has been suggested that Donald Trump will capture an unusually large portion of the black vote that will spell doom for Democrats. As many black voters, like other independent voters, seek the truth through the surveying of multiple news media outlets, many will reject Biden's atrocious stereotyping of an entire race. Nobody has to "like" Trump to understand the dangers of those who try to control voters like Biden.
Several fundamental facts emerge from this discussion. The most important are these: 1) The vast majority of lawyers are like Pilate. They will vote for Joe Biden, 2) If you are a minority of one, the truth is still the truth.
Underwater Economy


Consenting Adults

© 2020 Jim Spence - It is a strange world. Doctors in the trenches, as well as bureaucrats with medical licenses, are taking questions from the press during virus briefings. Practicing physicians are livid, because they are feeling increasingly pressured to declare Coronavirus as cause-of-death on certificates of patients who are merely suspected of having the virus. This is true even when their patients also had very serious underlying medical conditions. This has rendered all statistics being foisted on the public regarding the virus as extremely dubious and suspect. Funeral directors in places like New York, New Jersey, and Minnesota report these deceptions too.

Even many bureaucrats agree they disagree. Bureaucrat Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House Coronavirus Task Force response administrator, was filmed openly challenging bureaucrat Dr. Ray Redford, at the Center for Disease Control Director. These two physician bureaucrats were engaged in a heated conversation when Dr. Birx finally got the last word in. She told Dr. Redfield, “There is nothing from the CDC that I can trust!”


In the community of Castle Rock, Colorado, a snitch took video of a crowded restaurant, and called local bureaucratic “authorities.” What followed should become a national symbol for the over-reach of governments all over the country. The Governor of Colorado and the Tri-County Health bureaucracy, which has somehow become a self-appointed dictatorship in the Denver area, ordered the eatery closed.

The video of the C & C breakfast and Korean Kitchen is worth a review. It looked like any other video that might have been taken at any popular eating establishment until recently. The video triggered a dangerous government reaction. It clearly demonstrates as Colorado allegedly wants to "re-open," how governors and health officials remain enamored with having the raw authority to use “emergency powers.” This fondness for unrestrained power retention is destroying the freedoms and financial lives of millions of people.......all under the respectable guise of “saving lives.”

Upon serious contemplation one has to ask, “What is wrong with this picture?”

After considering the video images and all the implications for stolen civil liberties in America, one can only be reminded of the anti-homosexual laws being enforced a generation ago, over the vigorous objections of civil libertarians everywhere. This begs the question, "Where are those civil libertarians now, as governors and local bureaucrats seem hell bent on converting temporary emergency powers into permanent suspensions of the U.S. Constitution?"

The draconian police-state efforts of the governor and bureaucrats in Colorado is clearly anti-freedom more than anything else. Bullying restaurant owners and anyone else daring to offer Americans basic “choices," tramples the concept of letting “CONSENTING ADULTS” alone to live their lives.

People who willingly chose to frequent gay bars used to be stigmatized and bullied. However, these days no governor in his or her right mind, would suggest returning to the enforcement of anti-homosexual laws still on the books, simply because there is a possibility that people engaged in homosexual activity might contract HIV. Closing the local eatery in Castle Rock seems to be the 21st Century equivalent of jailing hotel owners because they know people are engaging in unprotected sex in some of the rooms.

The point here is simple. Dangers associated with the Chinese Coronavirus are no longer new news. After nearly three months of being drowned in dire forecasts, incomplete anti-body data, false records regarding causes of deaths, and the resulting phony fatality rates, Americans are painfully AWARE of the existence of dangers associated with the virus. Every single patron at the Castle Rock eatery already knew about the virus. And no doubt those in the area who fear contracting the virus, would have never even considered going to that establishment to get food. This same freedom of choice applies to the scant traffic volume on cruise ships, trains, buses, cabs, and airplanes these days. Traffic is down, but one can still CHOOSE to fly or ride a train......if one wants to "risk it." Will you get in your car and drive? If you are, you are taking a risk every day. It is called LIFE.

What a contrast. Somehow in America in many locales we have allowed power-hungry authoritarians to destroy our civil liberties and our choices.

Finally, consider the Swedish government’s response to the virus. The Swedes calmly and rationally warned the public to take precautions, without self-appointing themselves as dictatorial nannies indefinitely.

The cost of not demanding the return of basic choices in American life is going continue to produce financial devastation on a massive scale in America. The news media, which has once again presented a false narrative, is lying to us. Suggesting that governments must choose between the physical well-being of the nation or our economic health, is just another brazen lie. Crushing free will and terminating the ability of "consenting adults" to make their own choices, pretends that nothing else factors into our health and well-being, and we are all way too stupid to make our own choices anyway.

Emergency powers that become indefinite is no different than DICTATORSHIP. Eliminating choice options for consenting adults, is what gets done as a matter of routine in places like China, North Korea, Venezuela, Iran, and Cuba. Wake up America. We don’t want to live in those places. We want to live in America, where tolerance and respect for CONSENTING ADULTS having the freedom to make their own choices, is the essence of our liberal culture.

The Tale of Two Accusers

© 2020 Jim Spence - The emergence of dementia-plagued Joe Biden as the standard bearer for the Democratic Party is perhaps the most bizarre political development in decades. Astonishingly, Biden has been deemed their “best choice,” by Democratic Party primary voters. How can this be when watching Joe Biden attempt to field even the most basic questions from allies in the media has become excruciating. So excruciating is it, we find it totally unbelievable that voters in Democratic Party primaries and all the Democrats in the press, think Biden is qualified to assume the presidency. Sorry folks, someone who is obviously struggling with dementia, is not a good candidate for the toughest job on the planet.

Coincidentally, sexual assault accusers are back in the news again. The highest profile accuser these days is a life-long Democrat and former staff member of a former Democrat senator. The senator in question is Joe Biden.

The contrasts between Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser and Joe Biden’s accuser are stark. Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, was an obvious political prop. She made absurdly vague and completely unsubstantiated accusations against Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, that dated back 36 years to her days in high school in the 1980’s. While Ford conceded that she did not attend the same high school as Kavanaugh, she also admitted she could not remember exactly where the alleged assault took place, or exactly when. Still, she was trotted out on camera by Democrats to trash Kavanaugh.

None of Ford’s friends would corroborate a single accusation she made nor her making any mention of it. After being captivated by the dubious claims made by Christine Blasey Ford against Kavanaugh, countless numbers of Democrats felt compelled to say, with no supporting evidence that, “they believed her.”

Believe Biden, Not Women

Of course the filthy nature of politics made it easy for Democrats to believe Ford. She had been a left-wing activist when she and her 36-year-old accusations surfaced. Ford had contributed her personal funds to many progressive political causes, including to the non-profit Act Blue. Act Blue is a nonprofit group with an open hatred for anything having to do with Republicans and especially Republican judge nominees. A quick look at the Act Blue website told independent observers everything they needed to know about Christine Blasey Ford. Act Blue remains involved in developing and implementing fundraising technology for the left. Democrats simply found a committed party activist in Christine Blasey Ford they could use to smear a GOP Supreme Court nominee, in Judge Kavanaugh. It was all dirty political theater.

While the veracity of the sexual assault allegations by both alleged victims will remain in dispute, the relevant facts surrounding both these accusers are pretty indisputable. Like Christine Ford, Biden's accuser Tara Reade, was and is a registered Democrat. However, unlike Ford, Reade is accusing a FELLOW DEMOCRAT of sexual misconduct when both were adults. Also unlike Kavanaugh accuser Christine Ford, who never knew Kavanuagh, Biden's accuser Tara Reade actually worked for Joe Biden. With Reade's charges that Biden is a sexual predator, it seems clear that she thinks she mistakenly believed in Biden.

Let's be clear here. Like the Ford accusations, the Reade accusations are quite dated. And all fair-minded people should realize that the accused is always entitled to due process and a presumption of innocence. Naturally, Democrats found it politically convenient to forget about the concept of due process during the Kavanaugh smear attempt. But there is good news. Democrats have now miraculously rediscovered the great concept of due process, with Biden being the target of dated sexual assault allegations. If Reade were a GOP activist and contributor it would be easier to buy the smear angle. Still, most likely this will become a she-said, he-said incident.

The great contrast here is not in the denials of the accused, but in the reactions to this he-said - she-said incident within the Democrat-dominated media, along with most elected Democrats. Without qualifications, almost the entire American progressive power complex could not care less about anything former Biden staff member Tara Reade has to say about her alleged ordeal with Joe Biden. This stands in stark contrast to the progressive power structure's light speed willingness to...."believe" Christine Ford.

This begs several questions after watching Democrats indignantly demand respect for any and all women claiming they were victims of sexual assaults during the Kavanaugh smear.

1) Why does the Democrat's concern for women's well being rise and fall with the political leanings of the accused?

2) Why are some women to be believed and others disbelieved before any due process or vetting of claims?

3) Can an aging man like Joe Biden, who is obviously suffering from dementia, possibly be expected to remember any of his past transgressions?

Here's a late news flash. The New York Times has decided, after being goaded for a few weeks, to flip-flop on the idea of due process. The paper now says the Reade charges should be investigated. This comes after the Times passed judgment on her charges with NO investigation. No doubt, instead of reaching a verdict based on slanted news accounts of the charges, as the Times did in the Kavanaugh sham, they are at least calling for her to make her case under oath.

Make no mistake, if Tara Reade ever gets her day in the court and under oath, the New York Times will choose to NOT believe her. But how very "progressive" the Times editors are to finally be shamed into pretending they seek the truth.


Obedient Robots or Enemies of the State

© 2020 Jim Spence - That we now live in a pretend world where all citizens are commanded to become obedient robots serving the progressive's political agenda, is quite startling.

Up is down.  Cold is hot. Unjustified self-inflicted wounds are virtuous. A safe drug that works to save quackery. Virtually every elected official claims, “We are all in this together,” yet 95% of all private sector jobs are presumed to be NON-ESSENTIAL. Contrast this reality with the fact that these same elected-officials imply by the absence of unpaid furloughs, that 100% of all government jobs are presumed to be essential. Let that sink in.

The condescension of America’s ruling/cultural elites has no boundaries. Recently a tenured Harvard professor suggested that home schooling is a “danger to children and to society.” This comes as news to some of our most successful family members, who have also done a brilliant job of home schooling their children for many years. In fact, the mother of these children is involved in coordinating the improvement of home schooling for their region.

It is important to understand that those who protest most loudly against home schooling and home schooling parents, are shameless defenders of the failing public education model. These betters are unable to disguise their true preference, which is that ALL parents should be forced by law to surrender control of their children’s minds at an early age, so progressive Democrat indoctrination can begin. The child belongs to the state, because the state knows best, is their religion.

Ruling/cultural elites continue to benefit from the naked biases of America’s media. These biases have been grotesquely exposed by what the media chooses to NOT report on. For example, there is a total absence of coverage of the wonderful results achieved by physicians all over the world using Hydroxychloroquine to provide life-saving relief for virus victims. Instead of joyfully passing on uplifting information regarding a long ago approved compound, that has saved lives all around the world, the clinical results of the drug are repeatedly downplayed by our media, even as the evidence of its incredible efficacy piles up.

Why would this occur? Ever since Trump suggested the drug had potential, the media has been exhausting its energy attempting to disprove the drug’s remarkable efficacy. Anti-Trump journalists routinely cross basic ethical lines as they lie, distort, and omit key facts regarding how this life-saving the drug has helped tens of thousands of desperate patients. The proof is in their behavior. A Democrat elected-official in Michigan recently pointed out how the drug saved her life. For simply telling the truth, she was immediately cast as a villain by her fellow Democrats. “Shut up and die if this might help us beat Trump," seems to be the Michigan Democrat’s dubious message.

Sorry friends, this is not political, it is bizarre.

On this same theme of systematic distortion, what should be exposed by journalists as the biggest scandal in American history, will instead go mostly ignored by the progressively-biased U.S. media. Not only was the so-called Russian collusion con game nothing but a political scam, it was foisted on the American public and the gullible media by higher ups in the Obama CIA and FBI. And though the media chooses to NOT REPORT any of this, it is becoming clear with each passing day, that the Obama administration appointees at the FBI and CIA engaged in unprecedented criminal misconduct during and after the 2016 election. Count on Obama appointees to be indicted by grand juries in the coming weeks for their blatant criminal conduct. This will occur while the media looks the other way or dismissively brands exposure of these criminal activities as, “partisan.”

Also receiving little media coverage in America, are massive citizen protests launched against suspension of the U.S. Constitution by state governors in places like Las Vegas, Nevada, Lansing, Michigan, Newport Beach, California and Sacramento, California. The reasons why these protests are taking place are painfully obvious. Freedoms are being denied to law abiding citizens, while convicted felons, including habitual sex offenders, are being released to prey on the public. Apparently, much like the tenured Harvard professor, the Democratic governors, and their pals in the media, believe home schooling is more dangerous to children and society than releasing convicted sexual predators into the general population.

These twisted lines of reasoning seem to go along the same line of thought that demands we keep abortion clinics open for late-term abortions to, “save lives.” Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer went so far as to call abortion procedures “life sustaining.” For whom, remains the unanswered question associated with her ridiculous assertion.

In a similar pattern of convoluted thought processes, there have been multiple arrests and citations issued to mothers and fathers who were “caught” playing with kids in near empty public parks.

Readers......the government over-reach to this virus is easily the biggest scam in the history of our nation. The time for mass civil disobedience is right under our noses. There is no room for dictatorship in America. Too many governors don't understand this. They need to be taught some basic civics lessons, since the public education model failed them too.

An Epidemic of Uninformed GROUP THINK

© 2020 Jim Spence - In recent years it has become increasingly clear that the powerful one-two combo of 1) parents disinterested in academic excellence and, 2) pathetically low expectations of public education at all levels, has finally caught up with us.

Uninformed GROUP THINK is now failing our nation. The evidence is overwhelming. Critical thinking skills are in short supply. Fundamental awareness of simple mathematics and statistics are so lacking in the adult population, that millions of citizens now cede the processing of important information to pop culture including a completely irresponsible news media complex. Accordingly, a significant percentage of Americans are reacting very passively as power hungry-elected officials take cynical steps to destroy virtually all basic freedoms enshrined in our constitution.

The writings of 20th Century prophet George Orwell are being continuously verified. Every single day we see the corrosive effects of group-think distorting the basic mathematics of the virus pandemic. As a result, the long-ago discredited fatality rate projections of the virus, made by "expert bureaucrats," continue to be completely misrepresented by the majority of so-called journalists. Confirmed virus cases, which are trumpeted relentlessly by clueless "reporters" and their headline writing editors, remain meaningless, as they are only one isolated variable in a more complex equation. And while death counts are not meaningless, they are being taken completely out of the context, as part of a systematic omission of other components important to useful risk calculations.

Specifically, important data points regarding the widespread existence of virus antibodies in the general population continue to go ignored. And sadly, tens of millions of blissfully ignorant or otherwise brainwashed citizens, are wholly incapable of understanding that tens of millions of Americans have already had the virus and recovered from it. The death rates match those of previous flu outbreaks.

Evidence that this nasty virus is being used as an excuse to conduct a political sham is everywhere. Emergency room doctors from California were recorded on local news broadcasts earlier this week asserting emphatically that draconian “stay at home orders” are completely unnecessary. These doctors also indicated that public health bureaucrats in California have been pressuring all doctors to attribute virtually all deaths to Coronavirus on death certificates. The doctors in California connected the dots and suggested these seemingly bizarre pressures are political. They are simply a deceitful attempt by power hungry politicians to make the virus threat seem far worse than it is. These disturbing reports from doctors, have been corroborated by funeral directors all over the nation including in New York state, where directors say that suddenly and absurdly, virtually ALL death certificates are attributing the cause of death to the virus. This is happening regardless of actual testing or autopsies. This sham process is rendering almost all other causes of death to be radically diminished in the statistics. And further supporting this lamentably deceitful situation, is the fact there is no almost no mention in the media that the aggregate death total (all deaths) in the U.S. is down 15% since March 1st.

Forced business closings and oppressive stay at home orders in most places in the U.S. are destroying millions of financial futures. The stupidity of these policies is highlighted by the fact there have been no mandatory stay at home orders or lock downs in Sweden. In Sweden, citizens are expected to rely on their own common sense, with basic safety protocols put in place. In Sweden and in the state of South Dakota, where no lock downs were ordered, there have been similar or LOWER infection rates to those locales where severe restrictions are in place. Add to this fact that there has been limited economic damage in Sweden and South Dakota, versus widespread damage in most other places, and one must wonder why these facts get so little coverage in our media.

In the state of South Dakota, citizens held a parade in honor of their governor Kristi Noem. There, the general population is exceedingly thankful that Governor Noem refused to be duped into engaging in the self-inflicted wounding of her constituents, as if economic self-destruction is a strategy that is "essential."

Speaking of essential, the dividing line on what is essential and what is not, has been made clear by Democratic Party elected officials. Despite the 3rd rate service we citizens tend to receive from virtually all government authorities, all around the nation, government employees are still being paid. Once notorious for working at 25% of their capacity, with so little economic activity this spring, many government employees are now doing nothing at all. Still they are all collecting full pay and benefits. Of course, this happens while many Democrat governors deem most private sector activities “non-essential.” The burden of proof is on the business to prove what they do is essential. Refusals by Democrat governors to concede that more than a few occupations are "essential," has resulted in millions of employees sent out on unpaid furloughs and many business owners facing personal bankruptcies.

The crass political nature of this entire freedom-robbing and bankruptcy-inducing experience, is particularly damnable. Globalists have been seen in media interviews sucking up to China and the W.H.O. while pushing Americans to surrender sovereign decision-making authority to international bureaucrats. The ultimate insanity of trusting globalist bureaucratic entities, is reflected in the conduct of the World Health Organization. The W.H.O. actually refused to even acknowledge this virus was contagious until countless nations were infected.

It seems that the most favored way for most DOMESTIC elected officials to feel more important and more relevant, is to adopt ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL policies, that increase the perceived need for a “nanny state.” Gullible constituents, having never been taught how freedoms are usually stolen from the people, are going along. In short, big government has been just dying to “save” all of us. And with this virus, the self-appointed nannies are making hay, while the uninformed are conned into believing, "We are all in this together." We aren't.

Predictably, most Democrat governors are revealing that they will NOT surrender their recently acquired emergency powers at any more than a snail’s pace, if at all. And many Democrat elected officials are behaving like the pigs in George Orwell’s classic novel, Animal Farm. The Mayor of Chicago, the Governor of Illinois, the Mayor of New York, and even a CNN anchor (Chris Cuomo) have been caught in acts of blatant hypocrisy. They have all been seen violating their own stay at home orders. All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.

What is going on here? Basic freedoms are being terminated right under our noses. The thirst by Democrats, for a change in political power, is at the center of this entire shabby episode of American history.

We are reminded that we encounter stupid drivers out there on the roads and highways every day. Many drivers continue to recklessly send text messages while operating their automobiles. The data on distracted driving, unlike the data on the widespread existence of Coronavirus antibodies, is well-publicized. Moreover, much stricter enforcement of these life-threatening activities would require ZERO economic sacrifice. However, in spite of an epidemic of deaths caused by distracted drivers, no calls for stronger enforcement of anti-driving distraction laws are heeded. Those of us who recognize this danger, continue to drive, while being ever more alert that the number of fools on the road playing with their phones while they drive is up. The same basic principal applies to the flu and it should apply to the virus too.

We all know the flu and the virus are out there, but we also knowingly continue to leave our homes during flu season while being ordered by tyrants to stay at home because of the virus.

Going about the business of life, is simply part of living our lives, the importance of which, is something that seems to be lost in this epidemic of uninformed group-think.

Sad, that so many are uninformed, making it easier for political hacks to revoke freedoms.
