Former NYT Writer Bari Weiss Confronts Brian Stelter Over CNN’s Covid Lab Leak Coverage, Hunter Biden Laptop & More .


CNN got a dose of common sense from former New York Times writer Bari Weiss Thursday, who explained why she, like many Americans, feels “the world has gone mad” due to the “progressive” left’s political correctness.

“So in what ways has the world ‘gone mad?’” Reliable Sources’ Brian Stelter asked.

“Where can I start? Well, when you have the chief reporter on the beat of COVID for The New York Times talking about how questioning or pursuing the question of the lab leak is racist, the world has gone mad. When you’re not able to say out loud and in public there are differences between men and women, the world has gone mad. When we’re not allowed to acknowledge that rioting is rioting and it is bad and that silence is not violence, but violence is violence, the world has gone mad,” Weiss said. “When you’re not able to say the Hunter Biden laptop is a story worth pursuing, the world has gone mad. When, in the name of progress, young school children, as young as kindergarten, are being separated in public schools because of their race, and that is called progress instead of segregation, the world has gone mad. There are dozens of examples.”

Feigning incredulity, Stelter went on to ask, “Who’s the people stopping the conversation?”

“People who work at networks, frankly, like the one I’m speaking on right now, to say it was racist to investigate the lab leak theory,” Weiss shot back. 

“Who said that at CNN?” Stelter asked. “When you say ‘allowed,’ it’s a provocative thing to say… You say we’re not allowed to talk about these things but they’re all over the Internet … I’ve heard about every story that you’ve mentioned. So, I’m just suggesting, of course people are allowed to cover whatever they want to cover.”

Weiss responded, “But you and I both know that it would be delusional to claim otherwise that touching your finger to an increasing number of subjects that have been deemed third rail by the mainstream institutions and increasingly by some of the tech companies will lead to reputational damage, perhaps you losing your job, your children sometimes being demonized as well, so what happens is a kind of internal self-censorship.” 

Elsewhere in the interview, Weiss broke down why the NYT was right in 2020 to publish an op-ed by Tom Cotton calling on President Trump to dispatch troops to cities overrun by rioters and looters, which sparked a backlash among NYT staffers.

“Do you believe, Brian, that an op-ed can literally put people’s lives in danger?” Weiss asked.

“Do you believe that that op-ed put people’s lives in danger?”

“If 1,000 journalists said ‘No, it is wrong that New York Times editors were fired over an op-ed by a Republican senator, that’s insanity, that’s craziness,’”she said.

“If 1,000 people stood up and said that rather than 1,000 people in the case of Tom Cotton signing a letter saying their life was in danger, the whole news media would be different.

“It’s really about people standing up, saying no to the mob, saying yes to free speech and yes to openness to debate, and showing that in doing that, they can not just survive the mob but also come out on the other side of it.”

Stock Up Now, Inflation Could Get Very Ugly .


The price of pretty much everything is rising precipitously. The CPI for September came in above expectations with a month-on-month increase of 0.4%. Peter Schiff appeared on Unfiltered with Dan Bongino to talk about inflation in Joe Biden’s America.

Peter said you should stock up now because things could get ugly really quickly.

Bongino pointed out that while wages are rising, they aren’t rising as fast as prices. Wages have risen 4.6% while inflation has surged by 5.4% — according to government numbers. Peter said that is typically the trend.

“The price of labor never keeps up with the price of stuff.”

Peter said the real problem is during and after COVID, a lot of Americans stopped working.

“Unfortunately, they didn’t reduce their spending because the government made the mistake of replacing the incomes they lost with new money that the Federal Reserve was printing. So, we were making fewer things to buy, but everybody had more money to buy stuff, and so, prices just went ballistic. And they’re going to keep going up.”

Bongino pointed out that the rich have accounts and hedge mechanisms to shield themselves from the impacts of inflation. But what does an average middle-class family do to avoid the financial apocalypse of inflation coming down the pike?

Peter said, first of all, remember that inflation is a tax.

“So, when the Biden administration says they’re not taxing people that make less than $400,000, they’re hitting them with this huge inflation tax.”

So, how do you avoid it?

Peter said, “Stock up now!”

“Buy the things that you think you may need a year from now, two years from now. Buy it now. Especially the stuff that is nonperishable. Becuase in the future, stuff is going to be in even shorter supply than it is now, but prices are going to be much higher. So, why wait for the prices to go up? Just buy the stuff that you need now while it’s available and a lot less expensive than it’s going to be pretty soon.”

Bongino said we have plenty of historical examples that show us an inflation problem can get very ugly very quickly if we don’t get our arms around it. Just look at what happened in the Weimar Republic. Peter said it will get ugly, and there really is no way to get our arms around it.

“I think we’re going to reap the whirlwinds of the winds that we’ve been sowing. And you know, you have to go back to the 1970s to see inflation anywhere near this bad. The problem is we’re already at the point that we were at the latter part of the 1970s. We’re just getting started. So, we’re going to be looking at serious annual inflation rates in the double digits. And imagine how high the official rates would be if the government was actually measuring them accurately. Because we’re not keeping track of prices using the same CPI that we used back in the 1970s. What we’re doing now really understates the true degree to which prices are rising. And so Americans are feeling the pain of inflation to a much greater degree than it’s being reflected in the official numbers.”

Trump Predicted The Left Would Eventually Go After Statues Of Thomas Jefferson (VIDEO)


The city of New York is about to remove a statue of Thomas Jefferson from their city hall.

You know who predicted this? Trump. Way back in 2017, when the left was working so hard to remove a Confederate statue, Trump knew exactly where this was headed next.

And when he said it, the media scoffed at him.

Look at the way NBC News reported it at the time:

Statues of Washington, Jefferson Aren’t ‘Next,’ But It’s Complicated, Historians Say

President Donald Trump has decried calls to remove the “beautiful” Lee statue, and others honoring the Confederacy, claiming that the nation’s “history and culture is being ripped apart” and asking where it might end.

“This week it’s Robert E. Lee. I noticed that Stonewall Jackson is coming down. I wonder, is George Washington next week and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You really do have to ask yourself: ‘Where does it stop?’” Trump asked at a Tuesday press conference…

Is the president right about the impending threat to the founders? Historians who spoke to NBC News said such fears are slightly misplaced and that Trump is championing a murky interpretation of history…

“The president can raise the slippery slope, but it’s a false slippery slope,” said Kevin Levin, a Boston-based historian who specializes in American Civil War history.

Here’s what Trump said:

And here we are, just four years later.

The left made fun of Trump for saying this would happen, but once again he was right.

Country Music Legend Travis Tritt Boycotts “Any Venue or Promoter Mandating Masks, Requiring Vaccinations, or Pushing COVID Testing” .


Superstar country musician Travis Tritt made a stand against venues mandating masks, vaccine passports or negative Covid tests in order to get into shows.

Tritt canceled concerts in Muncie, Indiana; Philadelphia, Mississippi; Peoria, Illinois; and Louisville, Kentucky.

Speaking with the Daily Wire, Tritt said, “I’m putting my money where my mouth is and announcing that any venue or promoter mandating masks, requiring vaccinations, or pushing COVID testing protocols on my fans will not be tolerated,” Tritt said in a statement sent to The Daily Wire. “Any show I have booked that discriminates against concert-goers by requiring proof of vaccination, a COVID test, or a mask is being canceled immediately.”

“Many people are taking a firm stand against these mandates around the country, and I wholeheartedly support that cause,” Tritt continued. “I have been extremely vocal against mandates since the beginning.”

The country star explained that he is happy to support freedom-loving business owners.

“This is a sacrifice that I’m willing to make to stand up for the freedoms that generations of Americans have enjoyed for their entire lifetimes. There are plenty of promoters and venues around the country that appreciate fans and the freedom of choice in this great country, and those are the promoters and venues that I will be supporting.”

“Let me be very clear. I’m not speaking out against vaccines. I’m speaking out against anyone forcing the vaccines on people who may not want or need them,” Tritt wrote on Twitter.

Tritt also joined Louder With Crowder on Monday to discuss his stance.

He told Crowder, “We have to preserve our freedoms. We’ve never been in a situation in this country where the government has been able to force you to take medicine that you may or may not need.”

In July, guitar legend Eric Clapton made a similar announcement, telling fans he’d be canceling any shows at venues mandating vaccine passports during a 2022 tour.

Last month, comedian JP Sears also told followers he had to cancel some shows due to venues making attendees show proof of vaccination.

Hopefully these performers are setting an example for others who may be considering speaking out but are afraid of backlash from the media and the establishment mob.




Senator Chuck Schumer’s Woeful Ignorance of Aviation Security


I am still amazed when a public figure like Senator Chuck Schumer opens his yap and spews nonsense and lies. His latest gaffe concerns aviation security–specifically, who can do screening of passengers at airports.

The TSA should use its canine teams to keep airport security lines moving if there is a worker shortage amid the federal COVID-19 vaccination mandate, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said Sunday. . . .

“If TSA lags in jabs, send in the dogs,” Schumer said during a press conference in Manhattan, citing recent revelations from the TSA that 40 percent of its employees remain unvaccinated. . . .

“The canine teams are really effective,” he said. “They can help secure national security and allow TSA agents to more effectively and efficiently screen individuals for explosives. It really works and moves the lines along.”

TRENDING: EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Kinney County Texas Sheriff Coe Announces Historic Plan to Deputize Local Citizens to Fight Back Against Biden Border Invasion — LIVE ANNOUNCEMENT AT 8:30 Eastern!

I have relevant experience here. I was Deputy Director for Transportation Security in the Office of the Coordinator for Counter Terrorism in the early 90s. I also oversaw the Anti-Terrorism Training Assistance program in terms of policy and curriculum. Diplomatic Security had the job of implementing the program and doing the training.

One of the training programs involved dogs for use by foreign police to detect drugs and explosives. Dogs are great when performing a specific, limited task. If you need to ensure that an auditorium that will host a Presidential debate is bomb free, use a dog. If you want to quickly screen passengers arriving from Colombia for illegal narcotics, use a dog.

But dogs cannot do the work that TSA employees do at passenger screening check points. A dog cannot check you id and verify that the picture on your license matches your mug. A dog can not check you for metal or bottles of liquid with more than 6 ounces. A dog cannot do a pat down or run a wand over your body to verify that your artificial hip is not a concealed firearm. The dog can sniff your crotch (and probably will).

Then there is the work limit for a dog. A canine can work for 20 to 30 minutes but then needs a break. The dog’s effectiveness deteriorates if forced to work for an extended period of time. More importantly is the boredom factor. The reality of airport security screening is that serious threats involving illegal drugs or explosives is very rare. Dogs work on a reward system. They are either trained with food or toys/play. When the dog hits on a threat item that furry critter is a “Good Dog” and is rewarded appropriately. If the dog spends thirty minutes sniffing bags and passengers and comes up with nothing, the dog can get depressed. There is no reward.

Other factors to consider. You still need to have a human handling the dog. That means a trained police officer. He or she takes the dog home with them at night. Dogs are not locked away in a kennel and left alone at the end of a work shift. And let’s not forget that Sparky or Spot needs to go outside and relieve themselves. Most airports are not built with easy access to clumps of trees and grass. If you boost the number of dogs working at an airport you are going to increase the amount of canine fecal and urine that has to be scooped up. Most dogs have not learned to squat on a commode.

Once you consider all of the challenges and limitations that come from using a dog for airport security, you quickly realize that Schumer is a moron.



‘All Who Support Limited, Constitutional Government Should Support Overturning Roe v Wade’ .


Abortion has returned to the headlines thanks to Texas’ “heartbeat law.” As the name suggests, this law outlaws abortions performed after doctors can detect a fetal heartbeat. This is one of several recently passed state laws restricting abortion.

The US Supreme Court will soon consider a challenge to a Mississippi law banning abortions after 15 weeks. A court majority may use this case as a vehicle to limit or even overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision in which the court declared a federal abortion right.

All who support limited, constitutional government should support overturning Roe. The Constitution does not give any branch of the federal government authority to decide what does, and does not, constitute murder. Therefore, federal courts — including the Supreme Court — have no jurisdiction to decide what the penalty should be for performing an abortion. Overturning Roe would not create a nationwide abortion ban. Instead, it would return to the individual states responsibility for deciding what, if any, restrictions to place on abortion.

If supporters of abortion “followed the science,” they would have to admit that abortion is the taking of human life. A fetus with a heartbeat is developing, but is also still a human with a right to life.

The Biden Justice Department is supporting efforts to overturn the Texas heartbeat law in federal court. President Biden is also supporting the repeal of the Hyde Amendment, which forbids the use of federal funds for abortions. If Biden and Congress are going to use tax dollars to support abortions, then they should allow anti-abortion taxpayers to withhold the percentage of their taxes that would be used to support abortion. The same should go for those with moral objections to America’s militaristic foreign policy that forces US taxpayers to subsidize the killing of innocent men, women, and even children.

The Hyde Amendment does not completely protect pro-life taxpayers from subsidizing abortions. The amendment does not forbid organizations that promote or perform abortions from receiving federal money; it just forbids them from using for abortions the funds received from the federal government. Since money is fungible, a federal dollar going to a group that performs abortions to spend on their non-abortion-related activities frees up another dollar that can be used for abortions.

To ensure pro-life Americans are not forced to subsidize abortions — either directly or indirectly, it could be forbidden for organizations that promote or perform abortions to receive any federal funds. Denying federal funds to international organizations that promote or perform abortions might help reduce resentment of the US in other countries.

It is no coincidence that Roe v. Wade came at a time when respect for natural rights of life, liberty, and property was on the decline. Roe contributed to the decline in respect for rights and the rise in public and private immorality. These changes have led to violent crimes, people believing they have a moral claim — that must be enforced by the government — to the property of their neighbors, and acceptance of torture and “preemptive” war. The way to reverse these developments is to restore respect for the inalienable right to life, liberty, and property of all human beings, both born and unborn. The cause of life is inseparable from the cause of liberty.

‘Caravana Madre’ With 95,000 Migrants to March Through Mexico to US Starting This Saturday


Univision reported Monday that over 95,000 migrants are expected to form the “Caravana Madre” (mother caravan) to march though Mexico to the United States beginning this weekend. The migrants are now in the southern Mexican border town of Tapachula, located near the border with Guatemala where they are scheduled to start their march to the U.S. border with Mexico on Saturday, October 23 at 6 a.m. local time. The migrants are said to be a mix of Haitians and Central Americans.

Mexican activist Luis Garcia Villagran told Univision this is an “exodus from justice and poverty.” (excerpt, via Google translate)

Announce a new caravan of “more than 95,000 people” to the border

Simultaneously with the confirmation of intelligence work in the DHS, activists and organizations in Tapachula said that preparations are progressing for a gigantic march that would leave Tapachula (border between Mexico and Guatemala) heading north towards the south of the United States.

TRENDING: EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Kinney County Texas Sheriff Coe Announces Historic Plan to Deputize Local Citizens to Fight Back Against Biden Border Invasion — LIVE ANNOUNCEMENT AT 8:30 Eastern!

“It will start on 23 (October) because people have the need to walk. This is an exodus from justice and poverty. More than 95,000 people will march north to demand that the laws be respected and their rights respected. We are not conspiring against anyone, but helping people find a better life, ”says Luis García Villagrán, director of the Center for Human Dignification, AC in Tapachula.

Activists point out that it would be “the mother” of all the caravans and would confirm the fears expressed by Mayorkas at the end of September.

“Look, the US government should focus more on the reasons why people migrate. Especially knowing that in Honduras the gang is the State, it is a warehouse for drug trafficking destined for the United States. People in the countries are falling apart, that’s why they flee. No one is conspiring against anyone. Intelligence has to discover the reasons for the flight and demand that governments, like Mexico’s, respect the law, “he said.

García also said that “at the moment in Tapachula there are about 95,000 immigrants of different nationalities and we believe that by the end of December the number will exceed 145,000. This does not stop because they are not doing anything to stop the causes that cause the exodus, “he concluded.

DC Comics Announces Superman Will No Longer Protect ‘The American Way’ .


The iconic comic book hero Superman will no longer stand for ‘The American Way’, according to DC Comics’ chief creative officer and publisher Jim Lee, who claimed Saturday that the tag line which has been part of the character’s story since 1940 needs to ‘evolve’.

Lee announced that “To better reflect the storylines that we are telling across DC and to honor Superman’s incredible legacy over 80 years of building a better world,” Superman’s motto will now be “truth, justice, and a better tomorrow.”

Lee added that “Superman has long been a symbol of hope who inspires people, and it is that optimism and hope that powers him forward with this new mission statement.”

Despite the entire point of Superman being a story of America (an immigrant coming to a new world and standing for freedom, morality, justice etc etc) that wouldn’t be woke enough in 2021, and so the notion of America as a righteous place has been unceremoniously dropped.

DC comics previously had Superman renounce his American citizenship in a speech before the UN in which the hero declared “I’m tired of having my actions construed as instruments of US policy. ‘Truth, Justice and the American Way,’ it’s not enough anymore. The world’s too small. Too connected.”

Recent woke issues of the comic have seen Superman protesting against wildfires caused by climate change, preventing a high school shooting, and protesting the deportation of illegal refugees in Metropolis.

In addition, DC comics has made Superman’s son a bi-sexual climate change concerned social justice warrior.

Dean Cain, who played the character on TV for years wrote an op ed recently slamming the use of the character to trash America, noting “There is a clear agenda here. It’s globalist, it’s anti-America, but it’s not bold and it’s not brave.

Cain added, “Truth, Justice, and the American Way” is no longer the catchphrase of Superman. The new phrase? “Truth, Justice, and a Better World.” Okay, I’ll buy that, but what’s the vision that accompanies this more expansive view of social justice? What would make for  a better world? Socialism? Communism? Forced equality?”

The actor further noted, “There’s real evil in this world today, real corruption and government overreach, plenty of things to fight against. Human trafficking, real actual slavery going on… it would be brave to tackle those issues, shine a light on those issues. I’d like to see the character doing that. I’d read that comic.”

Soon enough, all superheroes and role models for children will be like this:



Union Pacific Railroad Files Federal Lawsuit Over Unions’ Objections to Joe Biden’s Forced Vaccines


SMART, the International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers, is one of North America’s most dynamic and diverse unions with 203,000 members.   The union consists of sheet metal workers, service technicians, bus operators, engineers, conductors, sign workers, welders, production employees and more.  SMART is the largest railroad operating union in North America, with more than 500 Transportation locals.

Last Thursday SMART Union General Chairperson Roy Davis sent a letter to advise Union Pacific Company that the SMART Union strongly disagrees with the company’s “unilateral” requirement for COVID vaccinations.

SMART demanded an immediate response and demands that Carrier negotiates in good faith.

This is a huge move by America’s transportation employees union.

There are now three unions at Union Pacific Railroad protesting the Biden vaccine mandates.

On Friday Union Pacific Railroad filed a federal lawsuit over the unions’ objections to the Biden forced vaccine mandates.

Progressive Railroading reported:

Union Pacific Railroad on Oct. 15  filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court after receiving communications from three unions protesting the Class I’s vaccination mandate.

The unions involved are the Transportation Division of the International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers (SMART-TD), the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLET) and Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way Employees (BMWED).

“This action is necessary to prevent any disruption of the national rail network and to avoid any impact on America’s supply chain, as it continues to recover from the pandemic,” UP spokeswoman Robynn Tysver said in an email.

In the lawsuit, UP seeks to have any dispute over the mandate resolved through the various dispute resolution procedures outlined in the Railway Labor Act, she said.

“We continue to work with our employees and their union representatives as we comply with the law. We look forward to the court’s help in that effort,” Tysver added.

UP announced last week that it will comply with the White House’s executive order requiring employees of federal contractors to get vaccinated by Dec. 8.

Stock Up Now! Inflation Could Get Very Ugly .


Via SchiffGold.com,

The price of pretty much everything is rising precipitously. The CPI for September came in above expectations with a month-on-month increase of 0.4%.
