The look on the panel’s faces as they get intentionally gentle push-back over their sycophantic worship of Dr. Fauci is a little funny.
The CNN crew seems emotionally hurt at the suggestion that Dr. Fauci may be less than honest. WATCH:

Yeonmi Park, a North Korean defector, compared her experience at Columbia University to life in the “hermit kingdom.” Education (i.e., indoctrination) in North Korea is designed to teach children from a young age how to think, what to think, and not to question the status quo. “History is forgotten in North Korea,” Park stated, adding she was excited to learn the true facts of history while studying in the land of the free.
To her dismay, she quickly discovered that her American ivy league college participated in the same behavior. After stating that she enjoyed Jane Austen and classical works, her teacher quickly corrected her for adoring books written by authors who were “bigots” with a “colonial mindset.” Students cheered for communism and socialism without regard for past events, such as the millions of lives lost under Mao Zedong’s rule. “They are dying to give their rights and power to government…they take it for granted. They don’t know how hard it is to be free,” Park stated. She failed to understand how students paying tens if not hundreds of thousands for education could cry oppression.
The most confusing part for Park is that Americans, unlike North Koreans, have access to the internet, books, and a plethora of information, yet they “choose to be brainwashed.” She concluded by determining that education is designed to prevent people from critical thinking. “The future of our country is as bleak as North Korea’s if we don’t rise up right now,” Park warned.

As the closing arguments of the Derek Chauvin trial wrap up today those who want to advance racial hatred attempt to intimidate a prior defense witness. Former police training officer Barry Brodd testified for the defense. His former home in Santa Rosa, California, was attacked Sunday with a pigs head left on the blood-splattered front porch. Fortunately Mr. Brodd had previously moved away from that location, but the current owner was obviously mortified.
The far-left is once again using every resource to trigger violence and hatred around this case. Without a doubt the activists inside Obama’s Chicago network are coordinating the effort. They have been exploiting the death of George Floyd for maximum political value and antagonism from the outset.
CALIFORNIA – A group of as of yet unidentified vandals reportedly threw a bloody severed pigs head on the porch of the former home of a retired California cop who served as a defense witness in the trial of Derek Chauvin, the ex-Minneapolis police officer currently standing trial for the murder of George Floyd.
According to NBC, the current resident of former training officer Barry Brodd’s former home in Santa Rosa found the animal’s head on their blood-splattered front porch around 3 a.m. Saturday morning in what appears to be a case of mistaken identity – or, just stupidity by vandals too dumb to realize that Brodd hadn’t lived at the house for years.
The local police department says it seems the home was targeted because of Brodd’s witness testimony in Chauvin’s trial, in which Brodd likened Floyd’s death to an “accidental death.”
“That isn’t an incident of deadly force,” Brodd said during the trial, according to the Associated Press. “That’s an incident of an accidental death.”
The unfortunate current resident of Brodd’s old house called the police after seeing multiple suspects, dressed in all black, fleeing the scene. The same group is thought to have soaked a local statue in blood and left a sign reading “Oink Oink” about 45 minutes later. (read more)
Rage, hatred and violence is the mantra of the far-left….
The people behind the coordination of this national division are the same communists who indoctrinated Barack Obama into the Alinsky methods. It is all one large soup mix of various racial antagonizers in the same pot. This is what they do…. this is how they drive division.

Brearley is a private all-girls school on the Upper East Side of Manhattan in New York City. Tuition costs $54,000 a year and prospective families apparently have to take an “anti-racism pledge” to be considered for admission. However, one family has had enough of the indoctrination machine and penned an eloquent letter explaining their reason for removing their daughter.
April 13, 2021
Dear Fellow Brearley Parents,
Our family recently made the decision not to reenroll our daughter at Brearley for the 2021-22 school year. She has been at Brearley for seven years, beginning in kindergarten. In short, we no longer believe that Brearley’s administration and Board of Trustees have any of our children’s best interests at heart. Moreover, we no longer have confidence that our daughter will receive the quality of education necessary to further her development into a critically thinking, responsible, enlightened, and civic minded adult. I write to you, as a fellow parent, to share our reasons for leaving the Brearley community but also to urge you to act before the damage to the school, to its community, and to your own child’s education is irreparable.
It cannot be stated strongly enough that Brearley’s obsession with race must stop. It should be abundantly clear to any thinking parent that Brearley has completely lost its way. The administration and the Board of Trustees have displayed a cowardly and appalling lack of leadership by appeasing an anti-intellectual, illiberal mob, and then allowing the school to be captured by that same mob. What follows are my own personal views on Brearley’s antiracism initiatives, but these are just a handful of the criticisms that I know other parents have expressed.
I object to the view that I should be judged by the color of my skin. I cannot tolerate a school that not only judges my daughter by the color of her skin, but encourages and instructs her to prejudge others by theirs. By viewing every element of education, every aspect of history, and every facet of society through the lens of skin color and race, we are desecrating the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and utterly violating the movement for which such civil rights leaders believed, fought, and died.
I object to the charge of systemic racism in this country, and at our school. Systemic racism, properly understood, is segregated schools and separate lunch counters. It is the interning of Japanese and the exterminating of Jews. Systemic racism is unequivocally not a small number of isolated incidences over a period of decades. Ask any girl, of any race, if they have ever experienced insults from friends, have ever felt slighted by teachers or have ever suffered the occasional injustice from a school at which they have spent up to 13 years of their life, and you are bound to hear grievances, some petty, some not. We have not had systemic racism against Blacks in this country since the civil rights reforms of the 1960s, a period of more than 50 years. To state otherwise is a flat-out misrepresentation of our country’s history and adds no understanding to any of today’s societal issues. If anything, longstanding and widespread policies such as affirmative action, point in precisely the opposite direction.
I object to a definition of systemic racism, apparently supported by Brearley, that any educational, professional, or societal outcome where Blacks are underrepresented is prima facie evidence of the aforementioned systemic racism, or of white supremacy and oppression. Facile and unsupported beliefs such as these are the polar opposite to the intellectual and scientific truth for which Brearley claims to stand. Furthermore, I call bullshit on Brearley’s oft-stated assertion that the school welcomes and encourages the truly difficult and uncomfortable conversations regarding race and the roots of racial discrepancies.
I object to the idea that Blacks are unable to succeed in this country without aid from government or from whites. Brearley, by adopting critical race theory, is advocating the abhorrent viewpoint that Blacks should forever be regarded as helpless victims, and are incapable of success regardless of their skills, talents, or hard work. What Brearley is teaching our children is precisely the true and correct definition of racism.
I object to mandatory anti-racism training for parents, especially when presented by the rent-seeking charlatans of Pollyanna. These sessions, in both their content and delivery, are so sophomoric and simplistic, so unsophisticated and inane, that I would be embarrassed if they were taught to Brearley kindergarteners. They are an insult to parents and unbecoming of any educational institution, let alone one of Brearley’s caliber.
I object to Brearley’s vacuous, inappropriate, and fanatical use of words such as “equity,” “diversity” and “inclusiveness.” If Brearley’s administration was truly concerned about so-called “equity,” it would be discussing the cessation of admissions preferences for legacies, siblings, and those families with especially deep pockets. If the administration was genuinely serious about “diversity,” it would not insist on the indoctrination of its students, and their families, to a single mindset, most reminiscent of the Chinese Cultural Revolution. Instead, the school would foster an environment of intellectual openness and freedom of thought. And if Brearley really cared about “inclusiveness,” the school would return to the concepts encapsulated in the motto “One Brearley,” instead of teaching the extraordinarily divisive idea that there are only, and always, two groups in this country: victims and oppressors.
l object to Brearley’s advocacy for groups and movements such as Black Lives Matter, a Marxist, anti family, heterophobic, anti-Asian and anti-Semitic organization that neither speaks for the majority of the Black community in this country, nor in any way, shape or form, represents their best interests.
I object to, as we have been told time and time again over the past year, that the school’s first priority is the safety of our children. For goodness sake, Brearley is a school, not a hospital! The number one priority of a school has always been, and always will be, education. Brearley’s misguided priorities exemplify both the safety culture and “cover-your-ass” culture that together have proved so toxic to our society and have so damaged the mental health and resiliency of two generations of children, and counting.
I object to the gutting of the history, civics, and classical literature curriculums. I object to the censorship of books that have been taught for generations because they contain dated language potentially offensive to the thin-skinned and hypersensitive (something that has already happened in my daughter’s 4th grade class). I object to the lowering of standards for the admission of students and for the hiring of teachers. I object to the erosion of rigor in classwork and the escalation of grade inflation. Any parent with eyes open can foresee these inevitabilities should antiracism initiatives be allowed to persist.
We have today in our country, from both political parties, and at all levels of government, the most unwise and unvirtuous leaders in our nation’s history. Schools like Brearley are supposed to be the training grounds for those leaders. Our nation will not survive a generation of leadership even more poorly educated than we have now, nor will we survive a generation of students taught to hate its own country and despise its history.
Lastly, I object, with as strong a sentiment as possible, that Brearley has begun to teach what to think, instead of how to think. I object that the school is now fostering an environment where our daughters, and our daughters’ teachers, are afraid to speak their minds in class for fear of “consequences.” I object that Brearley is trying to usurp the role of parents in teaching morality, and bullying parents to adopt that false morality at home. I object that Brearley is fostering a divisive community where families of different races, which until recently were part of the same community, are now segregated into two. These are the reasons why we can no longer send our daughter to Brearley.
Over the past several months, I have personally spoken to many Brearley parents as well as parents of children at peer institutions. It is abundantly clear that the majority of parents believe that Brearley’s antiracism policies are misguided, divisive, counterproductive and cancerous. Many believe, as I do, that these policies will ultimately destroy what was until recently, a wonderful educational institution. But as I am sure will come as no surprise to you, given the insidious cancel culture that has of late permeated our society, most parents are too fearful to speak up.
But speak up you must. There is strength in numbers and I assure you, the numbers are there. Contact the administration and the Board of Trustees and demand an end to the destructive and anti-intellectual claptrap known as antiracism. And if changes are not forthcoming then demand new leadership. For the sake of our community, our city, our country and most of all, our children, silence is no longer an option.

If you ever needed any proof that Twitter is out to overthrow the United States and transform it into a leftist utopia, the proof is now clear. Dorsey and his Twitter permanently banned Veritas for exposing the truth that CNN has deliberately used scare tactics to panic the country over COVID. I know two people who have died after being vaccinated. That’s perfectly OK with CNN, Twitter, and the rest of this crew. Dorsey can take his Rasputin look and move to a leftist country and leave the rest of us alone. You would think Twitter should ban CNN, but no, he bans James O’Keefe for exposing the truth.
I really think if you look at the Russian Revolution, anyone who works for Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube should realize that they are putting their own lives and those of their families at risk if this goes to a revolution. Facebook had already told its employees to avoid wearing the company logo in public. These people are messing not just with politics, but with the lives of people. In case they did not notice, the majority with the Democrats is razor-thin 50.4%. The tables may be turned with a vengeance against them in 2022. I for one would vote for sedition charges against those making these types of decisions.
Time To Take Out the Trash
Led by House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler, the House is working on legislation to increase the Supreme court seats from 9 to 13. This is an obvious and blatant attempt by Democrats to shift the balance of power in their favor. The Democrats are also trying to stop states from pushing through much needed election reform. They prefer no IDs and cheating, which will help keep Democrats in power. The Socialist Democrats are living up to their socialist bent. After all, Socialists do not permit competing parties. Once leaders such as Lenin and Castro took over, their opposition was neutralized. The Democrats are trying to do the same thing.
The Democrats need not fear a conservative Supreme Court. After all, the so-called conservative highest court in the land refused to hear overwhelming evidence that the Democrats stole the presidential election. I don’t trust the turncoat Chief Justice Roberts or any of the new conservatives on the Supreme Court. I trust Justice Clarence Thomas and that’s about it.
The round man known as Nadler seems to be wearing his pants a bit higher these days. I imagined his pants going higher and higher until his face was covered by them. He is helped by his Democratic colleague in the Senate, Ed Markey from Massachusetts. Their idea of packing the Supreme Court belongs in a trash compactor.

Jeff Zucker was named Chairman of WarnerMedia News and Sports in March 2019. He has also served as president of CNN Worldwide since 2013. If I were Zucker, I would hire an army to protect myself and my family. He is engaged in overthrowing the United States and trashing everything generations have fought and died for over the centuries. What he has done is no different than manipulating the people by creating false flags, as did Adolf Hitler, regardless of whether his end goal to dominate Europe or just the United States. He may be Jewish and does not have the same goal to eradicate Jews as Hitler did, but he is focused on Republicans.

Comrade James O’Keefe exposed the agenda of CNN with a brilliant undercover sting operation. After assembling hours of footage of CNN Technical Director admitting to the biased and ideological agenda of the network, Big Tech has moved-in to circle the wagons and protect the media wing of the administrative state.
[WESTCHESTER N.Y. – Apr. 15, 2021]Project Veritas Founder and CEO James O’Keefe issued a statement today, following the suspension of his personal Twitter account by the big tech giant.
“I am suing Twitter for defamation because they said I, James O’Keefe, ‘operated fake accounts.’ This is false, this is defamatory, and they will pay. Section 230 may have protected them before, but it will not protect them from me. The complaint will be filed Monday.” (link)
