C-SPAN Suspends Political Editor Steve Scully INDEFINITELY After He Admits He LIED About His Twitter Feed Being Hacked

by the DC Patriot C-SPAN suspended its political editor Steve Scully indefinitely Thursday after he admitted to lying about his Twitter feed being hacked when he was confronted about a questionable exchange with former Trump aide Anthony Scaramucci. The news came on the day of what was supposed to be a career highlight for the 30-year C-SPAN veteran. Scully was to moderate the second debate between President Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden, which was canceled after Trump would not agree to a virtual format because of his COVID-19 diagnosis. A week ago, after Trump had criticized him as a “never Trumper,” Scully tweeted “@Scaramucci should I respond to Trump.” Scaramucci, a former Trump communications director and now a critic of the president, advised Scully to igno...

Even WHO Officials Now Admit Lockdowns Are Extreme Policies with Disastrous Results

by Ryan McMaken Last week, Dr. David Nabarro from the World Health Organization admitted that lockdowns have been devastating for much of the world, noting that “Lockdowns just have one consequence that you must never, ever belittle, and that is making poor people an awful lot poorer.” Nabarro went on to list various examples of the economic damage done by lockdowns: Look what’s happened to smallholder farmers all over the world. Look what’s happening to poverty levels. It seems that we may well have a doubling of world poverty by next year. We may well have at least a doubling of child malnutrition. Nabarro also reminded his audience that lockdowns won’t make covid-19 disappear, employing the lockdown rationale use...

Arizona DEM Senate Candidate Mark Kelly’s Campaign Spokesman Apologizes for Calling Cops ‘Worthless F@&#ing Pigs’

by the DC Patriot Imagine if you will, a United States Senate candidate’s official spokesman saying that the police are “Worthless F***ing Pigs.” That actually happened, and the mainstream media isn’t even touching it. If it was a GOP candidate, or a Pro Trump candidate, it would be the #1 story in the media. The campaign spokesman for the Democrat candidate for he U.S. Senate in Arizona has now apologized for a tweet he wrote just before joining the campaign where he called the police “Worthless F***ing Pigs.” The following is from The Washington Times: T.J. L’Heureux, Mr. Kelly’s deputy press secretary, called police “worthless f–ing pigs” in response to a video that showed Chicago police clashing with protesters in August. He joined Mr. Kelly’s camp...

The New Media Has Become like the Old Media—And That Means the Usual Bias

by Ryan McMaken A Pew Research Center survey conducted in June finds that roughly three-quarters of U.S. adults say it is very (37%) or somewhat (36%) likely that social media sites intentionally censor political viewpoints that they find objectionable. Just 25% believe this is not likely the case. At this point, of course, it’s hard to see how this is even debatable. While “censor” is perhaps not the most accurate term to use here—given the word’s connotations of state intervention—it is apparent that social media firms, at the very least, limit discussion and the reach of certain political viewpoints by banning certain users. These firms also openly admit to biasing readers against certain content through the use of “fact checkers.” Anecdotal evidence also stro...

BREAKING: New Biden Emails Dropped, Uncover The Real Reason Why Hunter Biden Was At Burisma

by the DC Patriot According to a new bombshell email that was just released, a Burisma adviser stated in an email from 2015 that former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, was expected to give “deliverables” for the gas company with the “ultimate purpose” of stopping “cases/pursuits” into the company’s founder. The new bombshell email was allegedly found on Hunter Biden’s laptop and was published by Ken LaCorte at the Media Action Network. The batch of emails were sent in November of 2015 from Burisma adviser Vadim Pozharskyi to Hunter Biden’s business partners, sharing a list of “deliverable’s.” The emails made it clear that Biden and his business partners were on board with Burisma to set up meetings between the United States and Ukrainian offic...

The Progressivism of the Future Is Really Just the Socialism of the Past

by Antony P. Mueller The world is currently in the midst of a newly aggressive drive to bring about a new socialist order through a powerful and "efficient" technocratic state. This new order has been labeled as "progressive," but it is merely the latest version of the socialist impulse which we have seen before in the form of socialism and communism.  A War on Private Property Summed up in a single sentence, the plans of the communists aim at the abolition of private property. From there, the other major demands follow, such as abolishing the family, nation, and countries, and finally, as Marx noted, “communism abolishes eternal truths, it abolishes all religion, and all morality.” In as much as the program of liberalism “if condensed into a single word….is private own...

Dr. Fauci Suggests That Americans Should Cancel Family Thanksgiving Gatherings

by the DC Patriot Thanks to the so-called experts who have been the driving force of the economically disastrous lockdowns and forced masking orders as a response to COVID the nation may never be the same again.  Now that “two weeks to stop the spread” and “flatten the curve” have extended into a state of indefinite emergency that his being touted by the media as “the new normal” it is being suggested that Americans rethink their holiday traditions as well.  That is the word of Dr. Anthony Fauci, the career bureaucrat who heads up the White House Coronavirus Task Force who is now saying that Americans should consider canceling Thanksgiving.  Fauci who has become a celebrity despite his constantly shifting and contradictory statements on virtually everything rela...

The Fact-Free COVID Dystopia

by Thomas E. Woods, Jr. When it comes to Covid-19, bureaucrats and politicians keep moving the goalposts, changing the rules, and engaging in bait-and-switch tactics, so they can maintain the "new normal" dictatorship. Those who object, we're told, "just want people to die." It's now becoming clear that "you can't have your life back in some states unless you take it back." https://youtu.be/Xy3tP-BW5do Posted with permission from the Mises Institute.
