Planting Anarchism in America

 Set of 4 Chronicles of America History Books by Yale image 0

Johann Most, self-styled anarchist communist found sympathetic ears in New York after arriving in 1882.  He promoted “propaganda of the deed,” acts of violence that would energize the masses. After the assassination of President McKinley, he wrote that it was not a crime to kill a ruler. Most gave a speech at Cooper Union twenty-two years after Abraham Lincoln gave his promoting ideas not found in the Constitution; in the latter’s audience was Horace Greeley of the New York Tribune, who employed Karl Marx (with Friedrich Engels assisting) as his European correspondent.

By late 1864, fully a quarter of Lincoln’s army were German immigrants led by expelled revolutionaries of Europe’s 1848 socialist upheavals. Col. Rudolph von Rosa, an early member of the New York Communist Club, led the all-German Forty-sixth New York Regiment.

The CDC's New 'Best Estimate' Implies a COVID-19 Infection Fatality Rate Below 0.3%

That rate is much lower than the numbers used in the horrifying projections that shaped the government response to the epidemic.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the current "best estimate" for the fatality rate among Americans with COVID-19 symptoms is 0.4 percent. The CDC also estimates that 35 percent of people infected by the COVID-19 virus never develop symptoms. Those numbers imply that the virus kills less than 0.3 percent of people infected by it—far lower than the infection fatality rates (IFRs) assumed by the alarming projections that drove the initial government response to the epidemic, including broad business closure and stay-at-home orders.

Courting Disaster

Let me be clear – what has happened to LTG Mike Flynn since the government correctly decided that its miscarriage of justice was a miscarriage of justice has itself been a miscarriage of justice. But it’s almost indecipherable to those of you not cursed – I mean “blessed” – with a law school diploma, so I will attempt to clarify why this is so rotten and how this nightmare may be on its way to a happy ending

Chicago Police Bang On Church Doors To Stop Services, Film Everyone Who Arrived

 Small Church Sanctuary - stock photo
The pastor of a Chicago church said multiple police cars and a government representative showed up at his church on Sunday demanding services end.

Pastor Courtney Lewis of Cornerstone Baptist Church told Todd Starnes on his eponymous radio show that he was in the middle of church services when someone began to bang loudly on the front doors. Outside, he said, were three police cars, two unmarked cars, and a representative from Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s office. Lewis told Starnes it was “like the Soviet-style KGB.”

Sorry, media: You’re not victims no matter how much ‘abuse’ you take

 Kayleigh McEnany

Is there anything more tedious than the press complaining about how it’s treated?

After grousing that Stephanie Grisham, President Trump’s former press secretary, never held a formal briefing, the media can’t stand that Kayleigh McEnany, her successor, has made those briefings too contentious.

McEnany steamrolls, she dodges, she lectures reporters on the questions they should be asking. It’s that last point that riles some journalists. “Indefensible and grotesque,” said Jonah Goldberg to Chris Wallace on Fox News. “I have to say that if Kayleigh McEnany had told Sam Donaldson and me what questions we should ask, that would not have gone well,” Wallace said.

As Long As a Political Party Believes It Owns African-Americans, Blacks Will Not Be Free

Notwithstanding the need to call out Louis Farrakhan, despise Al Sharpton even more, and contemn Tamika Mallory of “The Women’s March” as the disciple of both, we can only support all Americans of all races, creeds, religions, and ethnicities as we all endeavor to achieve our respectively huge slice of the great American pie. In capitalism and with free markets unhindered by paternalistic government, the pie is big enough for everyone. As we grow, the pie grows unless an Ocasio-Hyphen chooses to kill 25,000 jobs for her district. It is not bleeding-heart liberalism, but deep blue conservatism to believe that all people are created equal, in the image of G-d, with the capacity to be fabulously good or Satanically evil. When a society treats its parts fairly and justly, those parts inevitably repay that investment many times over. But when a civilization targets any group for hate, all eventually pay a price. If the worst blight of our modern era is the Obama Wasted Decade, do not doubt for one moment that Obama was our country’s self-induced punishment for past wrongs, both real and those imagined.
