In August 2020, riots erupted in Kenosha, Wisconsin because police had non-fatally shot a man who, in the course of kidnapping his children from their mother, reached for a knife in his car while resisting arrest for a felony warrant.
In sworn testimony last week, police admitted that they were directed to do nothing to stop the arson, looting, and malicious destruction that beseiged the city. About $50 million of property was torched; 40 buildings were destroyed and another 100 damaged.
It was amidst that environment – the town he grew up in, beseiged by anarcho-fascist terrorists – that Kyle Rittenhouse went to Kenosha to protect the innocent city.
Kyle cleaned up graffiti throughout the day, and when the violence came, Kyle protected property, extinguished fires, and administered medical aid.
It was when Kyle extinguished a fire in a dumpster — that rioters were attempting to roll into a gas station — that one rioter, a convicted child rapist named Joseph Rosenbaum, told Kyle he would kill him when he got him alone.
And at the moment Kyle became separated for his friends, Rosenbaum chased Kyle until cornering him an alley. Then he screamed at Kyle, "F--- you" and lunged for his gun.
Only once Rosenbaum's hand was on the barrel did Kyle finally press the trigger.
Kyle immediately began running for the police when the mob chased after him. That was when Anthony Huber, a lifelong criminal whose history includes beating his sister, stabbing his brother, and kidnapping another man, hit him in the shoulder with a skateboard.
Kyle continued running, stumbled, and fell. Another rioter jump-kicked him in the face, and Huber went in with his skateboard. A split second before the skateboard's steel trucks would have crashed into Kyle's skull, Kyle discharged his rifle again.
Then another rioter, Gaige Grosskreutz, approached Kyle with a loaded Glock in hand. With Grosskreutz's gun (an illegal gun: he had a prior conviction for intoxicated use of a firearm) pointed directly at Kyle, Kyle fired once more, disabling the fourth assailant's arm, and at last made his way to safety among the police.
In every moment, Kyle Rittenhouse acted with pure innocence – and extraordinary discipline. It was his innocence that led him to protect Kenosha that day. He never once pointed his rifle at anyone until the moment he needed to fire, and then, did so with expert accuracy. Not one innocent bystander was harmed.
All of this was proven on countless videos recorded on the scene, and now corroborated by every eyewitness.
Instead of being venerated for the American hero he is, Kyle has been on trial these past two weeks for murder and related charges.
In the 14 months leading up to the trial, the mass media was waged a propaganda war to demonize Kyle. Why?
To poison the jury, to rile the mob in the event of an acquittal, to scar Kyle Rittenhouse for life, and to gin up civil war among the American people.
The campaign of endless lies was effective. Lies about Kyle flew across the Internet for the past year.
"The gun was illegal." False.
"Kyle took the gun across state lines." False.
"His mom should be in jail for driving him there." She didn't.
"Kyle had no connection to Kenosha." His dad lives there.
Fair-minded liberals on Twitter were surprised to learn the assailants were white, not black.
The lies about Kyle are shocking, and seemingly endless.
Lynchings are something worse than murders. Participants boasted of them. The goal was to terrorize black Americans into total submission.
That is what the radical Left wants most of all.
They tried to destroy Kenosha. Kyle stood in their way, so they tried to murder him.
He stopped them, so they want him dead now more than ever.
They can't wait for the media to declare Kyle a murderer. They can't wait to accuse anyone who told the truth about Kyle of defending a murderer.
This is a good time, right now, to take stock of how the "right wing" media, supposedly on our side, is covering the case.
After saying almost nothing for a year, Kyle had a few good days in court (his own testimony was extremely brave, and compelling), and only then, once it looked like Kyle would be acquitted, did they begin speaking up.
Problem is, conservative media is still media: they don't get the full story and don't know what they're talking about.
Kyle's defense team have made errors of shocking magnitude. See the video above for the details.
I pray for Kyle's acquittal, or that the judge throws out the case.
But if, God forbid, Kyle is convicted, watch what conservative media does.
See who stands up and rages against this injustice. See who continues to trumpet "Free Kyle!"
And see who moves on and pretends it all never happened.
See if the NRA says anything about the right to self-defense being murdered by the mob.
See if the Federalist Society says anything about this perversion of justice.
See if your "law and order" Republicans speak out, or turn away in shame.
And realize what every patriot must do: speak out, and fight back.
The America we love is almost gone. Every day brings a new travesty.
Our country is controlled by sociopaths. This is no exaggeration.
If we aren't fighting with every spare moment to save our country, we're going to lose it.
In our latest livestream, Rescue Michigan's Adam de Angeli interviews Anna Timmer, founder of West Michigan Action Conservatives, and Amber Harris, cofounder of Young America First Republicans and new Executive Director of the Oakland County GOP.
After a discussion of current events we delve into their programs, techniques, and successes of their respective organizations.
It's an insightful, can't-miss interview for anyone looking for fresh ideas for effective grassroots leadership.
It’s no surprise then that Western takes on China, its goals, and its priorities often feel more like guesswork than substantive analyses.
But Americans hoping to understand the new global superpower have one excellent asset: a hitherto unknown power behind Xi’s throne has written an entire book revealing exactly what he thinks of America.
The book is America Against America by Wang Huning, the secretive grey eminence of the Chinese Communist Party.
Anybody who wants to understand modern China, how it sees America, and how it plans to overtake America by avoiding America’s mistakes, has a duty to familiarize themselves with this book. And anyone who wishes to reverse America’s decline would be well-served studying Wang’s thought.
After the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, far-right activists launched an online campaign to form what they called a Patriot Party as an alternative to the Republican Party.
Facebook Inc. worked to kill it, citing information it said showed the movement was being pushed by white nationalists and self-styled militias who had worked to instigate the riot, according to internal company documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.
Facebook engineers made it harder for organizers to share Patriot Party content, restricted the visibility of groups connected to the movement and limited “super-inviters” from recruiting new adherents, according to a March review.
“We were able to nip terms like Patriot Party in the bud before mass adoption,” said another memo.
The University of Michigan paid Ibram X. Kendi $20,000 to speak at a one-hour virtual event in November 2020. [...]
The Regents of the University of Michigan agreed to pay Kendi’s speaking agency, Penguin Random House, $20,000 for the one-hour virtual event of which Kendi spoke for 45 minutes and answered questions for 15 minutes.
The contract between the University of Michigan and Penguin Random House also noted that Kendi would be unavailable to do "sound checks, microphone checks, AV checks."
Additionally, the contract stipulated that if the event went over 1,000 attendees, Penguin Random House would charge a higher amount.
Campus Reform asked the director of Public Affairs and Internal Communications at the University of Michigan Rick Fitzgerald where the funds came from to cover the cost of the event.
“Costs for this event were covered by the university's General Fund. General Fund money comes from a variety of sources, including student tuition and fees, state appropriations and costs recovered from sponsored research activities,” Fitzgerald replied.
Ibram X. Kendi is a prominent racist academic who insists hat one either fully embrace what he regards as the program of "anti-racism” [counter-racism] or be guilty by definition of supporting racism. He has remarked "what I'm trying to do with my work is to really get Americans to eliminate the concept of 'not racist’ from their vocabulary, and realize we're either being racist or anti-racist."
The Republican-led state legislature recently approved transferring a record $326 million from Michigan taxpayers to the University of Michigan in its annual state budget (HB 4400 of 2021).
The Office of the Attorney General in Nebraska issued an opinion Friday in response to the request of the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services that states there’s no “clear and convincing evidence that a physician who first obtains informed consent and then utilizes Ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19 violates the UCA (Nebraska’s Uniform Credential Act).” [...]
“Allowing physicians to consider these early treatments will free them to evaluate additional tools that could save lives, keep patients out of the hospital, and provide relief for our already strained healthcare system,” AG Doug Peterson wrote.
The Office of AG pointed to multiple medical journal articles, research, and case studies. They mentioned the study from Lancet that was later on retracted because of its flawed statistics regarding the use of HCQ.
After receiving your question and conducting our investigation, we have found significant controversy and suspect information about potential COVID-19 treatments. A striking example features one of the world’s most prestigious medical journals–the Lancet. In the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Lancet published a paper denouncing hydroxychloroquine as dangerous. Yet the reported statistics were so flawed that journalists and outside researchers immediately began raising concerns. Then after one of the authors refused to provide the analyzed data, the paper was retracted, but not before many countries stopped using hydroxychloroquine and trials were cancelled or interrupted. The Lancet’s own editor in chief admitted that the paper was a “fabrication, “a monumental fraud,” and “a shocking example of research misconduct in the middle of a global health emergency.
The office of AG even attacked the company, Merck, on their agenda.
Why would ivermectin’s original patent holder go out of its way to question this medicine by creating the impression that it might not be safe? There are at least two plausible reasons. First, ivermectin is no longer under patent, so Merck does not profit from it anymore. That likely explains why Merck declined to “conductI] clinical trials” on ivermectin and COVID-19 when given the chance.
Second, Merck has a significant financial interest in the medical profession rejecting ivermectin as an early treatment for
COVID-19. “[The U.S. government has agreed to pay [Merck] about $1.2 billion for 1.7 million courses of its experimental COVID-19 treatment, if it is proven to work in an ongoing large trial and authorized by U.S. regulators.”
That treatment, known a “molnupiravir, aims to stop COVID-19 from progressing and can be given early in the course of the disease.” On October 1, 2021, Merck announced that preliminary studies indicate that molnupiravir “reduced hospitalizations and deaths by half,” and that same day its stock price “jumped as much as 12.3%.” Thus, if low-cost ivermectin works better than–or even the same as-molnupiravir, that could cost Merck billions of dollars.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) thinks masks only need to be worn if someone is there to catch you without one, according to remarks caught on video during a Detroit community event.
The "Squad" member told attendees at the event that she only wore a mask because a "Republican tracker" was filming her. After doing an event with Housing and Urban Development (HUD) secretary Marcia Fudge on Monday, Tlaib conversed with a maskless attendee who mistakenly thought the Democrat scolded him for being "the one unmasked guy" in the area. Tlaib responded by insisting she only wore a mask because a "Republican tracker" was recording the exchange.
"Oh, no, oh, not you!" Tlaib said as she pulled her mask away from her face. "No, no, no—I'm just wearing it because I've got a Republican tracker here."
Agents demanded that Caldwell, a former lieutenant commander in the U.S. Navy who suffers from debilitating service-related spinal injuries, come outside and lay down in the grass.
“Someone grabbed my legs and dragged me through the grass. They threw me face down on the hood of the car, kicked my legs apart, put a chain around my waist and put me in handcuffs.” Caldwell said he looked up to see Sharon, his wife of 22 years, dressed in her nightgown holding her hands up with a sock in either hand. She, too, was covered in red dots from the weapons aimed at her. Sharon, 61, begged to put on her socks before they forced her outside in the cold. “I said a prayer, ‘Father, please don’t let them kill my wife,’” Caldwell said through sobs. [...]
Agents then transported Caldwell to the Central Virginia Regional Jail in Orange, Virginia, two hours from their home. He thought he would be booked and released.
Instead, it was just the start of what he called “an American horror story.” [...]
