A chaotic melange of items which show the hardening lines between reality and consensus: Links 1, August 1, 2020

1. HCQ has many benefits

2. Some good news:

3. John Counsell had one of the few non-leftist radio broadcasts in Ottawa till he and all like him got cancelled in one swoop when CFRA, the formerly non-leftist radio station was bought up by Bell Media, a more or less government entity.

In this clip, we see the communist anti-state actors we call ANTIFA for some reason, starting up yet another dystopian future. Fahrenheit 451

4. Someone actually planted the Chinese seeds

5. If it was not for Laura Ingram and Fox news, this political assassination would go unnoticed. And that in a nation that has in its founding documents the right to freedom of speech, especially for political ideas, and freedom in general.

6. The reality:

The anti-state lie about the banning of tiktok

“As far as TikTok is concerned, we’re banning them from the United States,” Trump said on Friday on board Air Force One, adding that he had the authority to do so, “with an executive order.”

TikTok, which is owned by the Chinese firm ByteDance, and has up to 100 million users in the U.S. and hundreds of millions worldwide, has faced scrutiny over security concerns. It has denied that it is controlled by or shares data with the Chinese government.

Trump’s threat comes after the platform was used to inflate expectations for turnout expected at Trump’s rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, which was embarrassing for the president’s campaign, USA Today reported.

7. Twitter’s numerous standards

8. Communist revolutionaries hold pregnant woman hostage on highway

9. It is very difficult to justify these measures based on anything that actually happened, that has not happened worse before where these measures have not been implemented.

10. Oakland protesters set fire to courthouse, smash windows

OAKLAND, Calif. – A protest in Oakland, California, in support of racial justice and police reform turned violent when a small group of demonstrators wearing helmets and goggles and carrying large signs that doubled as shields set fire to a courthouse, vandalized a police station and shot fireworks at officers, authorities said.

About 700 demonstrators participated in what started as a peaceful march Saturday night but then some broke from the larger group and smashed windows, spray-painted graffiti and pointed lasers at officers, said Officer Johnna Watson, an Oakland Police Department spokesperson.

Several fires were set in the downtown area, including one at the Alameda County Superior Courthouse that was quickly contained. Demonstrators hurled rocks, ceramic paint-filled balls and frozen water bottles through windows at the courthouse, federal building and police building in a raucous night that was unlike peaceful marches that have taken place in the city in recent weeks, Watson said.

“This was different,” Watson said. “This group of protesters had specific intentions to participate in one way or another — whether that’s carrying backpacks in with clearly very heavy items, and the smaller group would actually be engaged in doing the damage — there is a nexus with all of the attendees.”

Police made several arrests but did not provide details. There were no immediate reports of injuries to protesters or officers or immediate cost estimates of the vandalism, Watson said.

11. Unvetted: Michelle Obama Hosted Former Terrorist Bill Ayers

When she was an associate dean at the University of Chicago, Michelle Obama organized a panel discussion featuring her husband, then a state senator, as well as Bill Ayers, the infamous former leader of the Weather Underground anti-American domestic terrorist group.

The detail was documented by this reporter in 2008 and may be among the material that becomes newly relevant amid speculation the former first lady could be picked as Joe Biden’s running mate.

Such a move could set off renewed scrutiny of Michelle Obama’s past radical associations.  Her husband’s past radical ties became hot button issues during the 2008 presidential election while Michelle’s similar connections remain largely unexplored.

One such association runs through Ayers, who maintained a longtime close relationship with Barack Obama until the politician publicly denounced Ayers when the problematic association became a theme during the 2008 race.

While Ayers’s ties to Obama fueled election fodder, the connections between his wife and the domestic terrorist have largely not been vetted.

12. From the terrorist group, The Weather Underground, to the communist revolutionary group, ANTIFA

13. A fair point. The death penalty for one of the Boston Marathon bombers has been cancelled. If anyone is deserving of it, it is those two jihadi brothers.

 

Thank you Plona, M., Wrath of Khan, ET., EB., Snaphanen.DK., Johnny U., Richard, Hellequin GB., Chris Jones, and all who sent in materials this weekend so far.

  1. Item 1 – BILL GATES SPEAKS OUT

    ‘Elon’s positioning is to maintain a high level of outrageous comments, He’s not much involved in vaccines. He makes a great electric car. And his rockets work well. So he’s allowed to say these things. I hope that he doesn’t confuse areas he’s not involved in too much.’

    “When you let people communicate, you have to deal with the fact that certain incorrect things that are very titillating can spread very rapidly compared to the truth. And we’ve always seen that with vaccines,” Gates, who’s been the subject of conspiracy theories, told CNBC. “To the degree to which these media companies can see what’s being said on their platform and take things that are absolutely wrong and get rid of those things or slow those things down, that’s very tough.”
