Lockdowns Never Again: Sweden Was Right, and We Were Wrong  

By William Sullivan, AMER THINKER

In life, we encounter things which may work in theory, but not in practice.  Communism is famously one of those things.  Time travel is another.  With any luck, Americans will soon come to realize that strict social distancing, economic lockdowns, and mask-wearing all belong in that category of supposedly sound ideas that simply don’t work in reality.

For evidence, let’s look to Sweden.  As Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, an ER doctor at a hospital in Stockholm, writes on his blog, “COVID is over in Sweden.  People have gone back to their normal lives and barely anyone is getting infected anymore.”

Unlike so many other countries, “Sweden never went into complete lockdown,” Dr. Kendrick writes.  Non-essential businesses remained open, people continued frequenting restaurants, the kids stayed in school, and “very few people have bothered with face masks.”

President Donald Trump has issued an executive order that just might save America’s democracy. The order will prohibit Americans from any transaction with ByteDance Ltd., a Chinese company that owns the TikTok video-sharing mobile app.

  • At the moment, ByteDance is in negotiations with Microsoft and Twitter to sell TikTok. Yet a sale will not by itself end the threat. Any new owner will have to go over line after line of code to insulate TikTok from Chinese interference.
  • Even an exhaustive review may not be sufficient, because Beijing will still know the general architecture of the software, thereby facilitating further manipulation of the app. As Dabrowa told Gatestone, “My team discovered that a foreign actor may come in the backdoor and change the feed.”

The Beirut blast wasn’t supposed to take place in Beirut  

Hezbollah missiles tipped with ammonium nitrate were supposed to rain on Haifa. Opiinion.

Because of the preoccupation with the Coronavirus, the blast in Beirut on Tuesday, August 4th got much less attention than it deserved. Sure, the world looked at the explosion in superficial 21st Century style but failed to understand the ramifications of the blast, which are far more important to Israel and the Jewish People than Coronavirus.

While Coronavirus is a pandemic, the Beirut blast wasn’t planned to be in Beirut. It was planned to be a Hiroshima holocaust to level the city of Haifa, all of the Haifa Bay area and kill a million Jews, Heaven forbid. Hashem prevented that just as King David said he would.

The Truth About the Sovereignty Issue  

By David M. Weinberg, JISS        

According to critics, application of Israeli law to security and settlement zones in Judea and Samaria will ruin everything. It will undermine the “peace process” (as if there was one), and wreck Israel’s international reputation (as if everybody loved Israel nowadays).

These myths do not stand up to scrutiny.

• Myth 1: “Annexation” would be a violation of international law.

• Fact: “International law” is a malleable concept, and neither the government nor the Supreme Court of Israel ever have accepted the view that Jewish settlement over the Green Line is a violation of international law. Nor can Israel’s assertion of sovereignty in Judea and Samaria be considered “annexation” because the land never “belonged” to the Palestinians. The “Pompeo Declaration” and the “Trump Plan” explicitly accept the historical right of the Jewish People to settle in their biblical homeland (and consequently the US government already has recognized Israeli sovereignty over united Jerusalem and the Golan Heights).

The Sleeping Majority is Awakening America  

Ground Swell of Support in Battle Ground States

Paul E Vallely, MG (US Army Ret), STAND UP AMERICA  August 9, 2020

The next national election will be contentious. Given that Democrats have literally lost their minds over the last one, they seem to be following a disastrous move to the left that will place them in a mental institution. There is no doubt that Democrats, especially the new socialists (e.g., the Squad) are overcoming the old warn down Dems like Pelosi and Schumer. They rant and rant a new secular socialist government with all vestiges of Judeo-Christianity removed. Blame all the white males for everything they deem wrong in America. Our forefathers who founded this great country with a great freedom loving Constitution would certainly roll their eyes and turn over in their graves.

Not many people are aware of the backdoor election scheme that the Socialists Democrats have been planning and pushing on the America voters. It is called the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact and Mail-In Voting.

The key to defeating COVID-19 already exists. We need to start using it  

By Harvey A. Risch, MD, PhD, NEWSWEEK

As professor of epidemiology at Yale School of Public Health, I have authored over 300 peer-reviewed publications and currently hold senior positions on the editorial boards of several leading journals. I am usually accustomed to advocating for positions within the mainstream of medicine, so have been flummoxed to find that, in the midst of a crisis, I am fighting for a treatment that the data fully support but which, for reasons having nothing to do with a correct understanding of the science, has been pushed to the sidelines. As a result, tens of thousands of patients with COVID-19 are dying unnecessarily. Fortunately, the situation can be reversed easily and quickly.

The Coming Political Crisis in the USA  

By Victor Rosenthal

I think the USA today is facing a crisis matched only by those that took place at the time of the Civil War and the period of the Great Depression and WWII. Those events led to big changes in the nature of the Republic, and I see that happening again. Radical change is coming. But what form will it take?   A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post about the French Revolution. I suppose I was “triggered” by the rhetoric coming from the Left in the US, and especially old friends who seemed to think that if the coming election did not go the way they hoped, they would support (they are in general too old to participate in) a violent change of the government. I made two main points: 1) that revolutions are often bloody beyond belief, and 2) the ones who come out on top are usually not the ones with the most liberal ideas, but those that are the most ruthless and brutal in the use of force.

OWS Activists To Launch 50-Day September Siege of White House

OWS Activists To Launch 50-Day September Siege of White House

Unhinged Canadian activists who founded the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement, through their parent company AdBusters, intend to lay siege to the White House for the last 50 days leading up to the Nov. 3 American presidential election.

Having first burst onto the ‘protest scene’ in Zuccotti Park by pretending to just want to practice Yoga in the fresh air of a New York City park until Glenn Beck and Canada Free Press exposed them, OWS is back—this time as the Democrat Cavalry to “lay siege” to the White House between Sept. 17 and Nov. 3.

RUMORS SWIRLING: President Trump’s Recent Actions Indicate Something HUGE Is About to Drop  

By Joe Hoft, GATEWAY PUNDIT Published August 8, 2020 at 9:21pm

President Trump’s recent actions indicate the time may be very close where the Deep State and the Obama gang might finally have to face the music.

On Friday we reported that President Trump spoke to workers at a Whirlpool factory in Clyde, Ohio, to tout his efforts to restore America’s manufacturing base.  During the speech Trump also spoke about his work to reform prescription drug pricing by the pharmaceutical industry.

While speaking about reducing drug prices by cutting out the middlemen, Trump dropped this line saying,  “So, I have a lot of enemies out there.  This might be the last time you’ll see me for awhile.”

This was a very unusual and purposeful statement that he made.

The Trump Formula for Victory: Guns, Black Voters and the NFL  

By Wayne Allyn Root, TOWNHALL Aug 09, 2020

The Trump Formula for Victory: Guns, Black Voters and the NFL

Well, I’m sure I’ve got your attention now, with that provocative title! But I’m not kidding. I think President Donald Trump will win by an electoral landslide on Nov. 3 because of guns, black voters and the NFL. Let me explain this winning formula.First, guns. It’s hard to believe Democrats are this clueless, blind, deaf and dumb. And I stress dumb. They’ve made the 2020 election about guns. What a huge mistake in a country dominated by gun owners.

The Reverse-Colonization of France  

by Guy Millière, GATESTONE INSTITUTE  •  August 9, 2020

On July 4, on a small road in Lot-et-Garonne, in southwest France, a young gendarme, Mélanie Lemée, age 25, tried to stop Yacine E., a driver who was speeding. He accelerated and deliberately crushed her. She was killed instantly. Pictured: Gendarmes carry the coffin of Mélanie Lemée at her funeral in Merignac, near Bordeaux on July 9, 2020.

  • Asking the police not to give the name of killers is an attempt to hide the truth and prevent the public from knowing exactly who in France is committing these acts. Hiding the name shows a desire to appease the killers: when a killer has a Christian name, it is immediately printed on the front page.

Cancel Culture and the Jewish Experience  

By Dr. Manfred Gerstenfeld, BESA

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Cancel culture—the denial to certain people of any platform on which to express their side of an issue—has become more and more accepted in public debate. It led to a letter decrying it by more than 150 writers and intellectuals in Harper’s Magazine. But the signatories never saw fit to object to the longstanding anti-Israeli and anti-Jewish cancel culture that exists at many Western universities. The letter offers no operational conclusions, though a logical one would be the reformulation of the First Amendment of the US Constitution to make hate speech punishable by law.
