To the Left, lying is as natural as breathing. They are pathological liars and often times cannot help but lie in order to save their own behinds. They will lie about big things and small things. They will lie about everything so long as they get their way. Regarding the virus alone, they have already lied about the death numbers in a number of ways, from counting gunshot wounds as COVID deaths to lying about the total number of deaths, with the real number being around 6% of the reported death toll (roughly 10,000).
They are little dictators and this much has been shown for the past few months in particular. However, in Nashville, Tennessee, the mayor of that city is in deep trouble because of the possibility that the city knew, for some time, that bars and restaurants hardly contribute to Chinese coronavirus cases, but they maintained the tyrannical shutdown orders and even intended to keep such knowledge away from the public.
According to The Daily Wire: “A Nashville city council member is accusing Nashville Democrat Mayor John Cooper’s office of concealing low coronavirus outbreak numbers tied to restaurants and bars in the area, claiming that they are ‘fabricating information.’”
Fox 17 News also reported on Wednesday: “The coronavirus cases on lower Broadway may have been so low that the mayor’s office and the metro health department decided to keep it secret.”
The way in which this has been found out is through a series of emails between a senior advisor to the mayor and a health department official. Fox 17 reported: “The discussion involves the low number of coronavirus cases emerging from bars and restaurants and how to handle that and most disturbingly how to keep it from the public. On June 30th, contact tracing was giving a small view of coronavirus clusters. Construction and nursing homes were found to be causing problems with more than a thousand cases traced to each category, but bars and restaurants reported just 22 cases.”
In an email, health department official Leslie Waller asked senior advisor Benjamin Eagles: “This isn’t going to be publicly released, right? Just info for Mayor’s Office?”
Eagle responded with: “Correct, not for public consumption.”
One month after the fact, Tennessean reporter Nate Rau asked the following question to the health department in an email: “The figure you gave of ‘more than 80’ does lead to a natural question: If there have been over 20,000 positive cases of COVID-19 in Davidson and only 80 or so are traced to restaurants and bars, doesn’t that mean restaurants and bars aren’t a big problem?”
Health department official Brian Todd reportedly forwarded the email to five other officials asking how to answer the question. One official responded: “My two cents: We have certainly refused to give counts per bar because those numbers are low per site… We could still release the total though, and then a response to the over 80 could be ‘because that number is increasing all the time and we don’t want to say a specific number.’”
Isn’t this just rich? Seemingly, bars and restaurants reported just 22 cases of the Chinese coronavirus in that particular area of Nashville, but instead of being truthful and showing the right numbers, the local government decided to inflate the numbers a bit (though that “80 cases” is still extremely low and would naturally lead to the kind of question that Rau asked because there would still be no reason to shut down those businesses with those numbers) and lie to everyone about the true number of cases and how little risk there seemingly is from going to bars and restaurants.
What benefit is there to lying to people and shutting down those types of businesses when there is seemingly such a low risk? And don’t tell me: “Well, they said that the numbers were increasing all the time and things could be getting worse, so that’s why they did it.” Really? They prioritized an area that yielded low cases over areas where there was more risk? That would be like sitting in a car in front of a minefield, looking at alternative paths, finding one that is fairly rocky, and deciding that the rocky road is anywhere close to as dangerous as the minefield.
That is, of course, if we assume these people to be acting in good faith, which I do not trust that they are. The Left loves dictatorships and will attempt to become one at every given chance. This was proven by Cuomo, Newsom, Whitler, and now, by the government in Nashville.
They didn’t shut down the businesses because they yielded a lot of Chinese coronavirus cases or because they were at great risk of doing so. And even if they did it for these reasons at one point, the data came back that it was largely safe to open them back up, and still chose not to do it and chose to keep this a secret from the public.
They shut the whole thing down because THEY COULD. More importantly, because they know that a heavily-dampened economy would be bad news for Trump come November. With a rebounding economy, Trump’s chances of reelection also rebound. The Left doesn’t want that to happen, so certain sacrifices (yours) must be made. Your business must be shut down, unless a local government official with a “D” next to their name wants to use your services. You must risk being furloughed or your job being lost entirely or your business shutting down permanently (60% of them so far will) for the benefit of the Communist, I mean, Democrat Party.
And the people cannot be made aware of this because that would, obviously, cause an uproar in the local area, which they would rather avoid. The Left in Nashville would rather quietly put a pillow over the head of small businesses and suffocate them quietly, rather than let people know how much of a monumental failure (at best) they are.
Now, you could be thinking: “Well, how do we know if these emails are legit? They could have been faked by some right-winger trying to get Democrats in trouble.” Fair question. They could be fake. But they have been verified as real by a city council member.
City Councilmember Steve Glover reportedly asked a government attorney to verify if the emails were real and the attorney responded: “I was able to get verification from the Mayor’s Office and the Department of Health that these emails are real.”
Glover, upon discovering this, accused the Mayor’s Office and the Department of Health of “fabricating information. They’ve blown their entire credibility. It’s gone, I don’t trust a thing they say going forward… nothing.”
He added: “We raised taxes 34 percent and put hundreds, literally thousands of people out of work that are now worried about losing their homes, their apartments, etc., and we did it on bogus data. That should be illegal!”
Fox 17 News concluded in their report: “Again, we weren’t told by the mayor’s office this wasn’t true. We were told to file a Freedom of Information Act request. Which allows us now to ask the question: why are you keeping this from us? Why would you even want to? It’s just the real numbers and what could possibly be an honorable motive?”
Any government official who acts in good faith would want to let the public know whether some activity would be safe, particularly if it helps alleviate some economic stress and allows jobs to return and businesses to open. If the data says that something is relatively safe, a good faith government official will act accordingly and allow it. At the very least, he would tell the people this bit of good news in a time when there seems to hardly be any.
What conclusion, then, can we draw from the fact that the government officials in Nashville did not tell anyone this, did not deliver those numbers, that data, or the good news, and did not act according to the data presented, opening things back up? Naturally, the conclusion reached is that these are not government workers acting in good faith. They are not public officials who are interested in serving the public.
These are mini-dictators, holding on to whatever power they can keep for however long they can keep it. Seemingly, the idea is that if Biden wins, “the virus will just go away.” This could mean easing (some) restrictions, but no communist ever gives up power so easily. They have it. They will keep it until they no longer can.
They look upon China, North Korea, Cuba, and Venezuela with both adoration and envy, wishing they could wield the power those in government in those countries can. That is as close to absolute power as people can reach and these American dictators want as much of that kind of power as they can get, U.S. Constitution and civil liberties and rights be damned.
The worst part is that they deceive themselves into believing they are doing something “for the greater good”. They believe themselves to be the good guys when they suffocate small businesses into permanently closing. “There is a dangerous virus out there!” they repeat to themselves to justify the injustices they commit against the people that elected them.
This is why it’s so important to kick Democrats and Leftists out of whatever office they hold. I don’t think there has ever been another time in American history when the Left has more deserved to be utterly defeated and humiliated, to the point where they would be thrown into the ash heap of history. And I’m not just talking about their response to the virus. I’m talking about their hatred for the very institutions which keep us safe and free. I’m talking about the corruption they have shown in the past decade alone, trying to undermine and sabotage an administration they vehemently disagree with. I’m talking about their promotion of ABSOLUTE FILTH in the form of a film that is borderline child pornography.
The modern Left is so comically perverse you would think they came straight out of a fiction book where the bad guys are clearly evil and there is no depth to their character. They have demonstrated, time and time again, how utterly unfit, AT BEST, they are to run a lemonade stand, let alone an entire world superpower.
If it weren’t for the Left’s clear attempts at cheating this election, I honestly would not be surprised if Trump ended up winning all 50 states, the Left is that detestable and hated.
I do hope, however, that whatever cheating they try to pull off will so backfire as to make the 1984 election appear to be a fairly close contest.
God knows the Left deserves such a catastrophic fate.

As you may know, Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris this week during a virtual roundtable discussion referred to the “Harris Administration” and its plans for America. This is very concerning for two reasons, but before I get to that point let me share with you what she said:
“A Harris administration, together with Joe Biden as the president of the United States – the Biden-Harris administration will provide access to $100 billion in low-interest loans and investments for minority business owners.”
Some analysts think that this was a slip of the tongue and having a “Biden moment” (in reference to Biden’s declining cognitive abilities), while others think this is a message to the Democrat base and donors who are worried about Biden’s inability to lead the country due to the fact that he’s clearly not fit for office.
Regardless of the reasons why Harris mentioned a “Harris Administration” at all, the fact of the matter is that we know that a Harris Administration is what we're going to get if Democrats win in November. We know Biden’s not fit for office, clearly showing signs of dementia. And some speculate Harris will be sworn into office within the first month into the new Administration.
It's not just what some analysts think, it's also what Trump himself thinks as well. Let’s not forget that Trump himself has called Biden a “Trojan Horse” for the ultra-left to illegitimately gain power without really earning it through running for office, like the Constitution demands. Socialism or communism will never win elections fair and square, so they figure this is the way they’re going to steal it from American citizens.
There are two things that puzzle me about this.
The first one is this: why does the Democrat base even want to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket when they themselves rejected Kamala Harris during the primaries? She was utterly rejected by the base and was forced to drop out of the race quite early, really. If you remember, it was Tulsi Gabbard that finished her off in about 40 seconds during a debate. Remember what Tulsi said?
"Senator Harris says she's proud of her record as a prosecutor and that she'll be a prosecutor president. But I'm deeply concerned about this record. There are too many examples to cite but she put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and then laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana. She blocked evidence -- she blocked evidence that would have freed an innocent man from death row until the courts forced her to do so. She kept people in prison beyond their sentences to use them as cheap labor for the state of California."
So there you have it – in just those few seconds Kamala Harris was toast. She dropped out soon after that.
In other words, Tulsi Gabbard took Kamala Harris out as she EXPOSED the now VP candidate for the racist and corrupt piece of garbage she truly is. As a result, the Democrat base responded the only way they could respond: by withdrawing their support for Harris.
And now what? They rejected Harris earlier this year and now they’re about to vote for her as VP so that she can become the President they didn’t want in the first place? How do you reconcile that if you’re a Democrat? And I mean a regular Democrat, not a privileged Democrat like Hunter or Obama. I mean the base. How do you swallow this pill? You don’t want her but nevertheless the DNC imposes her onto you as the President you never really wanted? And you’re still going to vote her in? Why?
And the second thing that puzzles me about this is this: Do regular people realize that if we do indeed get a “Harris Administration” the level of violence in this country will go up? And pushed by the Harris Administration itself? I know a lot of people are talking about how violent democrats are going to become if they lose – they’re PROMISING to be more violent. So that’s a given. But if Biden-Harris win in November, history tells us that the violence will come from the Administration itself – there is no Communist or Socialist government in the world today or in history that hasn’t ruled and oppressed its people by force.
Kamala will remember very well that it was first the DEMOCRAT BASE that rejected her – she will make sure THAT doesn’t happen again and oppression will begin exactly there. The useful idiots that were supposed to make her the Democrat nominee will suffer the wrath of a rejected woman who won’t forgive or forget.
And, of course, then it’s the Republicans who will be targeted – it wouldn’t be the first time, as you know. The KKK was the terrorist army of the DNC back in the day with a mission to kill Republicans. Since black people were 100% Republican back then, you can imagine it was easy for the Dems to identify and massacre the enemy.
The Democrats MUST be utterly defeated this November. Our freedoms depend on it. Go vote in person!

Considering how deep-blue San Francisco is, I am not even a little bit surprised to find that the people who run that city are massive hypocrites. As it turns out, even as local and state politicians have argued and mandated that public gyms (as in regular people, as opposed to the politicians, use them) as well as other “non-essential” businesses must be closed, that seemingly did not apply to the amenities that affect the ruling class, only the peasant class.
According to The Washington Examiner, “Gyms within government buildings in San Francisco have been open for months, despite privately owned establishments being ordered to close due to the coronavirus.”
So, in San Francisco alone, we have a salon who had been ordered to be closed for months and was hemorrhaging money only to be told to reopen for one person in particular, that being her highness Nancy Pelosi (who hilariously tried to blame the salon owner, showing just how insufferable she is), and now, we come to find that gyms for government workers have been open this entire time, even despite the warnings those very people were giving public gyms about how “unsafe” it was for people to work out in indoor gyms.
What a sick joke it is to live in Commiefornia. Understandably, one gym owner told a local NBC News station: “It’s shocking, it’s infuriating. Even though they’re getting exposed, there are no repercussions, no ramifications? It’s shocking.”
Well, of course there are no repercussions and ramifications even while they are being exposed. YOU ARE DEALING WITH DEMOCRATS! Hypocrisy doesn’t stick to them. They do not get punished for blatant corruption.
For crying out loud, the current Democrat nominee has deep business ties with CHINA AND UKRAINE! He is essentially a puppet for Xi Jinping, but the media will never bring it up and they would even pretend that it doesn’t matter at all and play it off as a non-issue.
Sen. Diane Feinstein was caught employing a Chinese national for DECADES and literally NOTHING came of it, other than the Chinese national getting fired. No repercussions for Feinstein or anything. She was exposing national-security secrets and NOTHING came of it. Not to mention she was part of that whole pre-COVID stock market fraud, but the media focused largely on Sen. Loeffler.
The last Democrat nominee literally had a foundation that would take money from the Saudis and the Chinese (and whomever else, really) in exchange for “favors”. What do you think “pay-for-play” was all about?
Hypocrisy is a charge that does not stick to the Democrats because the media sides with the Democrats. The only standards the Left has are double standards, where we, the peasants, are supposed to listen and obey them even as they do something entirely contrary to what they tell us.
People are not allowed to go to salons, but Nancy Pelosi can (funny enough, in order to save some amount of face, the city began to ease on restrictions for salon owners following Pelosi being exposed). People are not allowed to go to the gym, but government workers can.
According to the Washington Examiner, the “gyms that have been open for government employees include those for police officers, judges, lawyers, bailiffs, and paralegals, according to the report. One such gym, the Hall of Justice gym, has been open since July 1.”
Now, I can understand gyms for police officers being open. Police precincts usually have gyms within them and it makes sense that out of everyone, they should still be allowed to work out in gyms (especially given the current social climate). They have to uphold the law and do many of the same tasks they usually do outside of a pandemic, so it makes sense for their gyms to still be open.
But what is a judge going to do with an open gym? Why does his or her gym get to be open for them? What need do government lawyers have to continue working out?
It makes sense for cops’ gyms to be open, given their line of work, but judges don’t go out hitting criminals with their gavel. Lawyers don’t go out hitting criminals with a case. Bailiffs, I suppose, could make sense given that they are supposed to maintain safety in the courtroom and they need to be physically fit to do so. But the others, apart from cops, don’t need their gyms to remain open, particularly as the rest of us plebs (I don’t live in San Francisco, but I doubt this double standard is exclusive to this city) are told we cannot go certain places or do certain activities.
Another gym owner put it how I just described it: “It just demonstrates that there seems to be some kind of a double standard between what city employees are allowed to do and what the residents of San Francisco are allowed to do.”
Yep, you, the peasant, have to obey and eat bread, if you can get some, while the ruling class gets to do basically whatever they want (see: Nancy Pelosi, again) and get to eat cake (and then burn all those calories in government gyms).
“But Freddie, COVID can spread quickly if all gyms are open,” the ignoramus will argue. Okay, what sense does it make to claim that public gyms are dangerous but government gyms are not? If the argument is that the virus can spread quickly in an indoor area with plenty of people, who are naturally not going to be wearing masks as to avoid getting a lack of oxygen, then why is a public gym at all different from a gym in a government building?
Not that I expect the liberal ignoramus to be able to answer, let alone honestly. The Left will actually argue that, even as people are not allowed to go to the beach, people are allowed to protest and riot for a Leftist political cause. No masks or social distancing or other health and safety guidelines are required at such protests, but other people not participating must still abide by those rules.
You can’t go to church to pray but you can to set it on fire. You can’t go to a park with your family but you can with your communist revolutionary friends to tear down statues and deface public property.
These double standards are BLATANT and the Left does not get punished for it, apart perhaps from the polls. And even then, the polls didn’t show that they were suffering until the media began to cover and justify obvious criminal acts of destruction as being “mostly peaceful”, all with even a garbage study that says that 93% of the protests were peaceful, while ignoring that that means that there were nearly 600 RIOTS IN 220 LOCATIONS because there were THOUSANDS of protests all across the country in the last three months.
The Left is filled with hypocrites but that hardly seems to matter to some people or event to many. I hope that, given this, things will begin to change a little.
I cannot imagine that the local business owners in places like San Francisco, which have suffered some of the strictest lockdown measures in the country (alongside other deep-blue cities and states), will be too keen on continuing to vote for the Democrats that ruin their businesses and live like royalty, borderline literally.
Do I expect California to turn red this year? Not really. But I do expect some people to recognize just how the Left has been running things and see the results of such governance. San Francisco was literally a “s**thole” before this pandemic began, let alone during it. If there is any hope of cities getting out of the craphole that they are in and return to prosperity, they have to stop voting for those who blatantly hate them and enact policies that are meant to hurt them in every way possible.
The Left must be defeated at all costs and everywhere possible.

If you were to ask a Leftist which country he or she believes is the most oppressive, regressive and tyrannical nation in the world, 9 times out of 10, they will say it’s the U.S. and the tenth time will be a non-answer because they are groggy from nap time. However, we all know very well that the U.S., while not perfect, is still FAR from the dictatorial and oppressive nation that the Left claims it is.
You don’t have to look very far to recognize this – the fact that the Left can attack Donald Trump without fear of imprisonment is enough evidence. However, let’s ignore such facts for now and focus on an actually dictatorial and oppressive regime which, unsurprisingly, the Left is all buddy-buddy with: the Islamic “Republic” of Iran.
According to the Jerusalem Post, the Iranian Supreme Court “confirmed the death sentence of national wrestling champion Navid Afkari for his 2018 protest against the regime in Tehran. The news website Iran International reported on Saturday that Iran’s clerical regime imposed two death sentences, six years and six months in prison, and 74 lashes on Afkari. His brother, Vahid Afkari, received a prison sentence of 54 years and six months in prison and 74 lashes. The third brother, Habib, was slapped with a prison term of 27 years and three months and 74 lashes.”
A national wrestling champion is being executed and his two brothers are being given lengthy prison sentences for the “high crime” of protesting the regime in Tehran two years ago.
This would just about be the equivalent to LeBron James being arrested, tried and sentenced to TWO death sentences (which really goes to show just how ridiculous the “justice” system works in that third-world craphole) for the “crime” of having protested against Donald Trump’s administration.
It would be very hard to imagine such a situation happening here, let alone the absolute outrage that would come as a result of such an injustice. And yet, this is what’s happening in Iran and somehow, someway, the Left is still convinced that America is anywhere close to that level of oppression.
Let me tell you what oppression is. Oppression is Facebook deleting posts that support Kyle Rittenhouse. Oppression is Twitter “accidentally” banning people who defend Rittenhouse, including the kid’s LAWYERS. Oppression is the fake news media attacking a teenager, lambasting him and smearing him, maliciously changing his life forever JUST because he is a political opponent. Oppression is being sentenced TO DEATH for protesting the government.
Notice that each instance of oppression I talked about that exists in this country is NOT coming from the federal government itself, but rather, from Left-wing businesses and organizations. This is because Leftism is oppression itself. This doesn’t mean that the government itself hasn’t been oppressive to some extent. Dinesh D’Souza, for example, was given five years probation and 8 months in prison for campaign finance violations (giving more than $20,000 to a GOP candidate in her race) back during the Obama administration. Yet, the Clintons are allowed to receive millions from foreign agents with total impunity JUST because they technically did not donate to her campaign directly, but rather, to the highly corrupt Clinton Foundation.
So the government definitely is capable of being rather oppressive, but to allege that it is on par with some of the most oppressive and tyrannical dictatorships to have ever existed is utter madness.
Leftists will claim that particular sets of people are “oppressed” because in many instances, they see a white cop JUSTIFIABLY shooting at a suspect who happens to be black. Despite the fact that there is NO defense of Jacob Blake, the Left will defend him to no end. Despite the fact that Rayshard Brooks was justifiably killed, the Left has insisted that “yet another white cop hunted down and executed a black man”.
They have convinced a lot of black people that they are practically hunted down by police just because of their skin color. They have convinced a lot of people in general that police are the bad guys and that defunding them completely will bring about a utopia where nothing bad ever happens and unicorns fart rainbows. They haven’t convinced a majority, thank God, but have convinced far more people than they should have been able to.
There is no rhyme or reason to believe ANYTHING that the Left says about any given topic, be it climate change, abortion, homosexuality and transgenderism, race relations, etc. And yet, many do, not because it is a logical attachment, but because it is an emotional one.
We can PLAINLY see that America is nowhere close to the level of oppression that regimes like Iran, North Korea, China, etc. are, and yet, many are convinced that they are all practically the same (and some will even argue that those countries are better, again, indicating that this is not an intelligent or logical attachment).
Returning to the situation with Iran, another aspect of it is that, allegedly, two of the Afkari brothers were tortured into giving confessions. The reason this is highly credible is because it comes from Iran International itself, and considering how “journalism” usually works in these dictatorships, I wouldn’t be surprised if this is a government-run website.
Iran International reported: “Navid and Vahid Afkari were severely tortured to give confessions, and the testimony of witnesses about their beatings and torture are even referenced in the case, but the court has ignored it.”
Now, one could ask: “Why would an Iran-owned website admit this?” To which I say: do you really think Iran cares how it is viewed by someone who gives enough of a damn to read through their news sites?
They are openly hostile to their own people when they protest against the regime (as evidenced by this very case). Remember when a bunch of women were protesting against wearing the hijab? Yeah, the regime would routinely make arrests and even open fire on demonstrators.
Compare that to what we are seeing in Democrat-run cities across the country today. We have rioters being DEFENDED by the fake news media (when the polls don’t show people being opposed to riots, at least) and many on the Left pretending that everything is fine and there is nothing to see. That some peaceful part of Portland is “obviously” an indication that there is nothing wrong anywhere else in the city, an argument which is the equivalent of December 7th, 1941 being rather peaceful because not ALL of Pearl Harbor was attacked.
Rioters assault cops and destroy property, both private and public, with much impunity because the fake news media (which, as the days go by, more and more, they prove that they EARNED the moniker of “enemy of the people”) runs cover for them by saying they are “peaceful protesters” or by sticking their heads in the sand and ignoring all the violence that proves they are b.s.-ing everybody. And while arrests are made, the Leftist DA’s of the various cities release the rioters without bail so the destruction and chaos may continue largely unimpeded.
Compare and contrast the two situations in Iran and the U.S. In America, rioters get to destroy buildings, assault people and cops, and get released a few hours after their arrest. In Iran, a guy gets two death sentences for having actually peacefully protested the dictatorial regime, and his two brothers also get lengthy prison sentences. Oh, and reportedly, all of this comes after having been tortured into confessing to the “crimes” levied against them.
According to the Jerusalem Post, “Iran’s judiciary charged the brothers with 20 different crimes including ‘attending illegal gatherings, assembly and conspiracy to commit crimes against national security, and insulting the supreme leader.’”
Meanwhile, in America, that first charge is levied not against the rioters but against people who attend funerals. Not against those who illegally gather during a pandemic to “protest” and cause chaos, but against those who want to visit family next door (which also goes to show the government’s ability to be oppressive, particularly when it is a Leftist government that is in charge).
Anyone still wanna tell me that America is at all on the same level of oppression as the Iranian regime is? Just look at that last charge of “insulting the supreme leader” to find that the two nations are entirely incomparable. If it were a crime to “insult the President of the United States”, every single person working in the fake news media, every single Washington establishment politician and roughly half the country would be in prison.
The American Left doesn’t know real oppression, but they are all too excited to try and oppress the rest of us.
“Woe to those who decree iniquitous decrees, and the writers who keep writing oppression, to turn aside the needy from justice and to rob the poor of my people of their right, that widows may be their spoil, and that they may make the fatherless their prey!”

Around three months ago, I wrote an article about how the State of Washington was knowingly counting gun shot wounds as Chinese coronavirus deaths, as well as many other things that should not be counted as COVID deaths being counted as COVID deaths.
In that article, I expressed how utterly angered I was at Dr. Birx saying in one of the press briefings that the CDC was counting deaths “with” the virus the same as deaths “from” the virus, even though there is a very clear difference and doing this makes little to no sense whatsoever.
Lo and behold, I was right in my assessment, because the CDC has recently announced that only 6% of the deaths associated to the COVID-19 death toll were strictly from the virus. That is to say, for only 6% of the deaths in the total, the virus was the only cause mentioned.
“For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death.”
This means that, according to the CDC, less than TEN THOUSAND people in the U.S. have died directly to the virus. 94% of the deaths came from people who had the virus but had other pre-existing conditions or co-morbidities that the virus likely just contributed to making matters worse.
This, for all intents and purposes, would be like having a group of students doing a project, but the popular kid in the group, even if he does the least amount of work, gets ALL the credit for the project. The Chinese coronavirus is the “popular” disease out there right now (in as far as it is well-known and there are some people who stand to gain from hearing worse and worse news relating to it) and even if it is a minimally-contributing factor to the death of someone who had respiratory or immune-system problems, it gets all the blame for the death of a person.
Now, like I pointed out in the aforementioned previous article, one can argue that we count AIDS deaths by people who died with it but, say, got sick with something else and died. And like I also pointed out in that article, this is fine when people are truthful.
The big problem is that doctors are not being truthful about the virus. People are attributing COVID deaths to things that should not be COVID, like gun shot wounds. And even when it comes to general other diseases, there is enough of a difference between the Chinese coronavirus and AIDS for the two to not be counted similarly. AIDS specifically targets the immune system and causes a deficiency in its ability to fight off infections (also, it’s an STD, not an airborne disease). It’s essentially the battering ram of diseases, which breaks down one’s defenses and allows for other things to get in with impunity.
The Chinese coronavirus is a respiratory disease much like the flu. So it would make far more sense to count COVID deaths more similarly to flu deaths as opposed to AIDS deaths. People die with AIDS; people die TO the flu. Similarly, people have died TO the Chinese coronavirus directly.
And the number of people who have died TO the Chinese virus are roughly 10,000. Still bad, but nowhere close to the 180,000 that we often hear from the fake news media in trying to blame it all on Trump. Now, those people are still dead, of course, but 94% of them had co-morbidities and in general other issues that COVID might have exacerbated (or maybe not, considering we have seen gunshot wounds be counted towards the death toll in a single state, so who’s to say this hasn’t happened far more often throughout the country?)
What’s more, as I shared in that quote, out of the 94% who died with COVID and another underlying issue, on average, “there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death”. So 94% of those who died with COVID but not directly from it also had at least TWO other health issues.
Here are the top underlying medical issues linked with Chinese virus deaths:
And other medical conditions as well, according to NBC News. People often had at least TWO other medical issues, any of the ones listed above or something else, as well as the Chinese virus. This goes in line with the survivability rate for the virus being around 99.9%. IT IS DIFFICULT TO DIE TO THIS VIRUS, PERHAPS EVEN MORE-SO THAN THE SEASONAL FLU.
That less than 10,000 people have died from COVID-19 is particularly bad, in relation to everything we did as a result of the virus, considering that, according to Health.com, the average flu season claims tens of thousands of lives and that the CDC estimates between 29,000 and 59,000 people died from influenza illnesses THIS YEAR.
And yet, no one’s panicking about that, despite it being a considerably bigger number, even on the low-end, to the total COVID-19 deaths from those who died to the virus. We upended our entire society for a virus that is less deadly than the flu.
At the time, this wasn’t known, of course. Hindsight is 20/20, for certain. However, at no point did the lockdown measures actually make sense, particularly to the extent that they were applied, and we saw the results of that insanity, both economically and in terms of physical well-being.
So, then, how can anyone argue in favor of not fully, or at least almost fully (because this virus is still clearly deadly for those who have medical issues and those who are of a more mature age), or even in favor of locking things down again?
A rhetorical question, of course, considering health facts are not what is driving people’s and politicians’ actions. Many Americans are gripped with fear to the point where a majority believe a MASK MANDATE would be perfectly acceptable. Many politicians also have to do certain things, not because they are good for the health and safety of their citizens and residents (and often times, they are not good for that) but because there is a certain narrative surrounding the virus and deviation from that narrative, driven by the Left and the media, will make someone appear like they are intentionally killing people’s grandmas (even as Cuomo practically did that and yet he is hailed as a hero of the age).
At this point, it is more imperative to fight against the narrative surrounding the virus rather than the virus itself. We can see that the virus is not as deadly as we once thought it was, not even close. It still is for the elderly and for those with underlying conditions, of course, and certain measures must be taken to try and limit the damage to such people. But everyone is acting like the Chinese virus is a death sentence when there are FAR deadlier viruses out there including the common cold. Everyone is acting like someone not wearing a mask it basically committing murder in broad daylight (even as we ignore or justify actual murder by BLM and ANTIFA terrorists).
Everyone is acting like going to a bar or a restaurant or CHURCH at anywhere over 50% capacity would lead to the black death.
The narrative surrounding the virus is deadlier than the virus itself.
Here’s hoping that people regain their senses and start fighting for their freedoms once again, wherever that issue applies.
“Deliver me, O Lord, from lying lips, from a deceitful tongue.”

I have previously made mention that I like basketball and there are times when that world meets the world of politics, whether it’s a stupid comment uttered by a player or the overall business dealings that the NBA at large has with the CCP (which has a little something to do with this article). But I don’t think I’ve ever talked about the two worlds of gaming and politics coming together, so this will be a fairly new experience for me.
At any rate, allow me to give you the important context of this article. According to Gaming news website Kotaku (which is Leftist, so it’s largely garbage, but useful here), the people at Activision, which is the publisher of the annual video game giant “Call of Duty”, decided to edit the trailer for their newest installment in the franchise: “Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War” because the trailer featured footage from the Tiananmen Square massacre.
But they didn’t just edit it for Chinese audiences. They edited the trailer for ALL audiences and only IGN and Gamespot still carry the original trailer (video below).
So not only are they censoring a massacre perpetrated by the CCP to Chinese audiences, they are also doing it for all audiences so that they might not know about it unless they specifically set out to research it. Perhaps I shouldn’t be so surprised at this, considering that Activision is partly owned by Tencent, a Chinese gaming corporation. I suppose Tencent doesn’t want anyone to know about the massacre perpetrated by the CCP, which makes sense considering they are a Chinese company.
However, it is still extremely shameful for Activision to go down this path of Chinese appeasement, especially considering the theme of the trailer.
For a little background context, the Call of Duty series has always been about simulating war. The first few iterations of the franchise focused on World War II and numerous sequels have either gone to a more modern setting, returned to World War II, delved into the Vietnam War and some have even gone to futuristic wars like World War III and other things. The Black Ops series in particular started out with a Vietnam War setting and seemingly, the producers are returning to that setting.
One important aspect of the setting was, of course, the conflict between the United States and the Soviet Union in their arms and space races, with plenty of stories of foreign interference such as Soviet spies infiltrating United States intelligentsia and other places, as well as the attempts to radicalize Americans towards accepting and embracing communism (which has been rather successful as of late).
And seemingly, the newest iteration in the franchise will explore this aspect a bit more. The trailer itself focused on an interview by a KGB defector named Yuri Bezmenov, who detailed in four stages how a free society collapses. The first stage is demoralization, specifically in indoctrinating students into believing foreign values and beliefs that stand apart from American tradition, which would be taught by radical students from the 1960s and 70s once they controlled educational institutions. This is currently happening.
The second step is destabilization of the structure of society – the economy, the military and international relations. This is currently happening as well, with the Left insistent on bringing down the American economy and destroy its superpower status so that a global government can be established and dominate completely. They are also destroying the military not simply by cutting its funding but also by having soldiers indoctrinated, forced to read pseudo-scientific garbage like “White Fragility”, and overall making it so that the U.S. military has no real desire to protect the U.S. As far as the international relations go, I chuck that up mostly to other countries which are more secular and socialistic and do not like people like Donald Trump, instead preferring people like Obama and Biden.
The third stage is crisis, an event which builds upon the first two stages to bring about a revolution. This is also happening with the Chinese coronavirus panic and the Left attempting to drive us towards a constitutional crisis following the 2020 election in their mail-in voting scheme, as well as the race riots going on bringing about a racial crisis to this country.
The fourth stage is normalization, as in establishing a “new normal”. Sound familiar?
At any rate, the actions by Activision are extremely ironic given all of this. One theme they outright display in the game’s trailer is “know your history or be doomed to repeat it.” And yet, they are destroying history by censoring the Tiananmen Square massacre in order to appease their Chinese owners.
You couldn’t write better satire than that, but unfortunately and sadly, this is reality. I don’t know how many recognize the irony in the trailer showing “know your history or be doomed to repeat it” and editing the trailer so it gets rid of an important part in world history which perfectly encapsulates the evil that is the CCP and communism as a whole in order to appease the people who perpetrated that crime against humanity.
The Chinese government killed hundreds, if not thousands of student protesters. This is a fact not known by most of the people in China, at least those not involved in the government, and at the behest of a Chinese company which partially owns them (5%), Activision is trying to ensure that this fact is also not known to other people outside of China.
Now, one might think “but it is very well known outside of China. How does one game trailer editing that part out make it so that people outside of China not know about it?” To this, I say: “wait a couple of decades.”
Communism used to be abhorred by the overwhelming majority of the country just 40 years ago. The memories of the Cold War are fading from this country and many are forgetting just what communism is and how horrible it is.
Just 30 years ago, West German band “The Scorpions” released the worldwide hit “Winds of Change” which celebrated the toppling of the Berlin Wall and freedom from communism, optimistic towards a future “where the children of tomorrow dream away in the wind of change.”
The tragedy is that the following verses say: “Distant memories are buried in the past forever.” THIS is the problem, because the children of tomorrow dream dreams of communist revolutions, and the memories are being buried too deep into the past, that they do not know how horrible communism is.
In time, the memory of the Tiananmen Square massacre will fade in the minds of the countries which know about it if not regularly taught. That Activision would edit out footage from its trailer in appeasement of the Chinese is an indication of this looming threat.
Of course, the massacre is but one aspect of communism which many will forget in the future. Matter of fact, even as many know about it today, how many even connect it with the horrors and injustices of communism? In America, we know very well about Tiananmen Square, and yet, plenty seem to want communism anyway.
That warning in the trailer that if we fail to learn from history, we are doomed to repeat it, may be cliched, but it’s definitely true. For crying out loud, New York University is now trying to implement RACIAL SEGREGATION in student dorms and this is being celebrated as an achievement by Leftists (not that that should be much of a surprise, considering they were fighting for segregation in the 60s, but still).
The memories of the Civil Rights movement, and the teachings that came about it, are being hijacked by the Left so that they might be forgotten forever, to the point where they rewrite history and say that MLK would support the anti-white, racist domestic terrorists in BLM.
Again, it’s disgustingly ironic that Activision would focus this year’s installment of Call of Duty on “remembering your history” while also attempting to rewrite it and lead people to forget it because actually remembering your history and reminding people of it would hurt their bottom line.
Shame on Activision for doing this and shame on all U.S. companies which work for or with the 21st century version of Nazi Germany.
Remember your history.

Jemele Hill is not exactly what people would call “smart.” This was very much clear when on Sunday, the former ESPN host suggested that the United States was just “as bad” as Nazi Germany, and that the Nazis “learned” from “watching America”.
Her initial tweet read as follows: “Been reading Isabel Wilkerson’s new book, ‘Caste,’ and if you were of the opinion that the United States wasn’t nearly as bad as Nazi Germany, how wrong you are. Can’t encourage you enough to read this masterpiece.”
Naturally, for comparing the U.S. to Nazi Germany, she was destroyed online for her sheer ignorance. Former Acting Director of National Intelligence and Ambassador to Germany Ric Grenell replied: “Read a book. The Nazis murdered 6.5 million Jews.”
Daily Wire writer Matt Walsh replied: “Been reading Jemele Hill’s tweets, and if you were of the opinion that she’s smarter than a cactus, how wrong you are.”
Tim Young replied: “Just the basic fact that you have a huge platform/make a solid living s****ing on the President and haven’t been locked in a labor camp says this is the complete opposite of nazi Germany. Grow up.”
To that particular tweet, Hill replied with the following: “Nowhere in my tweet did I say the current state of America is like Nazi Germany. I was referring to our racial history. The parallels have been pointed out by plenty of historians, not just Isabel Wilkerson. You tell me to grow up. I say, you need to read more.”
To be fair, the initial tweet did not specify that she was referring to Civil War-era America and not contemporary America. The wording was just ambiguous enough for people to reasonably believe she was referring to the current state of the country and not its history.
At any rate, she also replied to Arc Digital Editor-in-Chief Berny Belvedere, who originally told her: “This is breathtakingly irresponsible. How is anyone supposed to trust your judgment after this horror show of an opinion?”
To go on a bit of a tangent before quoting Hill’s reply to Belvedere, THIS particular opinion was only the latest one in a series of them which ought to demonstrate to people that her judgment is not to be trusted. She has REPEATEDLY compared Trump to some of the worst dictators in history and suggested he was on track to doing the same things that they did. This particular opinion was not particularly exceptional in comparison to the other atrocious takes she has uttered.
In any case, Hill’s reply to Belvedere was as follows: “What would you call it when a country that murdered millions of Jews learned their systems of genocide by watching America, and studying our history of racialized slavery, and great knack for racial terrorism?”
This is where I have to give up a point, but not a point she would want me to take note of: The Nazis DID learn from Americans – just not the country as a whole nor the kinds of Americans she would want them to have learned from.
What I mean is that Nazi Germany didn’t learn its practices from watching America. They learned their practices from watching THE DEMOCRAT SOUTH.
Hill, in her original tweet, was promoting a book that compared Nazi Germany with America, at least in its history as a country. Allow me, then, to promote a book that dispels the Leftist notions that America as a whole is to blame for the atrocities of the Nazis: Dinesh D’Souza’s “The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of The American Left.”
The subhead is, admittedly, a tad misleading. The modern American Left certainly has roots in the Nazis, but the Nazis also have roots in the old American Left – the one which fought for slavery, enacted Jim Crow laws and made it nearly impossible for former slaves to succeed and prosper, enacting laws and regulations that basically forced the freed slaves to return to the plantations while being paid peanuts and not living much differently free as they did when slaves.
Simply, to answer her question regarding what I would call it when a country that committed egregious crimes against humanity learned from watching politicians in America basically doing the same would be “learning from Democrats.”
Democrats were the ones who founded the domestic terrorist group known as the KKK. They were the ones who fought to keep their slaves. They were the ones who fought a war which led to the genocide of Native Americans.
Here’s an excerpt from D’Souza’s book, in a section aptly titled: “Learning from Hitler.”
“In this book I will show what the Left learned from the Nazis, and also what the Left taught the Nazis… Hitler… specifically said he intended to displace and exterminate the Russians, the Poles, and the Slavs in precisely the same way Americans in the Jacksonian era had displaced and exterminated the native Indians. The Nazi Nuremberg Laws were directly modeled on the segregation and anti-miscegenation laws that had been implemented decades earlier in the Democratic South. Forced sterilization and euthanasia aimed at eliminating racial ‘defectives’ and producing a ‘superior’ Nordic race were two additional schemes the Nazis got from American progressives…
… Franklin D. Roosevelt was an avid admirer of Mussolini who sought to import Italian fascist schemes to America. FDR also collaborated with the worst racist elements in America, working with them to block anti-lynching laws and exclude blacks from New Deal programs and name a former Klansman to the Supreme Court. Mussolini, for his part, praised FDR’s book ‘Looking Forward’ and basically declared FDR to be a fellow fascist. Hitler too saw FDR as a kindred spirit and the New Deal was widely praised as an American form of fascism in the Nazi Party’s official newspaper ‘Volkischer Beobachter’ and other Nazi publications.”
“JFK toured Nazi Germany in the 1930s and came back effusive with praise of Hitler and his theory of Nordic superiority. ‘I have come to the conclusion, ‘JFK wrote in his diary, ‘that fascism is right for Germany and Italy.’… [JFK] described [Hitler] as ‘the stuff of legends… Hitler will emerge from the hate that now surrounds him and come to be regarded as one of the most significant figures to have lived.’”
D’Souza notes that the American Left learned from Nazi Germany, following World War II, as much as Nazi Germany learned from the American Left which was directly responsible for the darkest parts of America’s history.
Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, was a massive advocate for eugenics (as evidenced by her founding of PLANNED PARENTHOOD) long before Hitler rose to power. She sought to eliminate black people, whom she considered “weeds” of society, and had black people fooled by a black eugenicist who would parrot Sanger’s eugenics propaganda as being beneficial to black people.
In a way, Hill is right in saying that Nazi Germany learned by watching America. However, they didn’t learn by watching Republicans or right-wingers. They didn’t learn by watching the people the Left now associates with them. They learned from THE LEFT and the things they had done. Like I pointed out, the Nuremberg Laws were modeled after the Left’s racist segregation laws.
The Nazis learned from the Left and the Left learns from Nazis. Take the following quote, as an example: “We are socialists. We are the enemies of today’s capitalist system of exploitation… and we are determined to destroy this system under all conditions.”
This sounds exactly like something someone would’ve said (or basically, someone did say) at last week’s Democratic National Convention. This quote, in fact, came from a 1927 speech made by Adolf Hitler.
D’Souza writes: “The Nazi Party at the outset offered a twenty-five point program that included the nationalization of large corporations and trusts, government control of banking and credit, the seizure of land without compensation for public use, the splitting of large landholdings into smaller units, confiscation of war profits, prosecution of bankers and other lenders on grounds of usury, abolition of incomes unearned by work, profit sharing for workers in all large companies, a broader pension system paying higher benefits, and universal free healthcare and education.”
With some slight alterations, this sounds exactly like the Leftist plan of today. Modern Leftists want, to some extent or another, each of these propositions, with some slight alterations to account for our modern era.
The American Left and the Nazis are inseparable, much as they might try to deny it. The American Left at least partly inspired Hitler and the Nazis in their quest to eradicate “inferior” races (I say partly because I believe Nietzsche’s theory of the “ubermench” or “superman” was also partly to blame). The American Left, past and present, has clear ties to Nazi Germany.
So, no, it’s not that Nazi Germany learned from watching America, because different states had different policies, as did different presidents in different times.
No, Nazi Germany specifically learned from watching American Leftists in how they enacted their racist and egregiously inhuman laws.

Plenty has been going on this past week. Perhaps the biggest story, of course, is the ongoing DNC, featuring liars, cheaters, deceivers, rapists, a young socialist who hilariously endorsed the guy who was not made the nominee that same night, and, of course, the Democrat nominee and Joe Biden’s husband: Joe Biden.
However, a story that has not really been reported on a whole lot, largely because it completely craps all over the Green New Deal and heavily exposes its many flaws, is the story of the California blackouts happening as a result of the state’s insistence on using “renewable energy” to power itself up but with those sources failing to meet the demand of Californian residents.
Over the last week, California had been experiencing a series of blackouts that make the state look like Venezuela, likely because socialists run both places, as a result of renewable energy sources failing to meet demand. Officials said that the blackouts came due to the “unexpected loss of a 470-megawatt power plant Saturday evening, as well as the loss of nearly 1,000 megawatts of wind power.”
The state’s overreliance on wind and solar has led to these blackouts, because there is little wind currently blowing and solar panels have a hard time collecting power from the sun when there are clouds in the sky or when it’s nighttime.
According to Breitbart: “On Friday, Newsom said, the state had fallen about 1,000 megawatts short; on Saturday, it fell 450 megawatts short. Sunday saw only ‘modest or minor’ interruptions. But on Monday, he said, the state would be 4,400 megawatts short of ‘where we believe we needed to be.’”
It doesn’t help California’s residents either that they are currently experiencing a massive heat wave, record-breaking temperatures, and wildfires in their forests.
Now, even despite this, Newsom still insists on continuing the “transition” to “100% renewable” energy, clearly not having learned the lesson that these other energy sources cannot, as currently constructed, meet the demand of the entire state. If they could, we wouldn’t even be talking about blackouts NOW.
Still, he did admit that “we cannot sacrifice reliability as we move forward in this transition” and that they need to be “more sober” about renewable energy, which is extremely rare for any Leftist to do.
I don’t imagine the Left would be all too happy to hear this (provided anyone does hear it, considering this story exposes the flaws of green energy as being insufficient and leading to a series of blackouts and no proponent of these communist policies would dare share a story which would expose these things).
The reason I say this is because any semblance of a thought that green energy is in any way flawed or with drawbacks must be shut down. Michael Moore was lambasted for releasing a film which EXPOSED the inefficiencies of “green” energy, being extremely dependent on the very fossil-fuels they claim to be trying to replace.
I’ve already written a little about this movie, more specifically, in a rebuke by another Leftist environmentalist wacko who was among the people who lambasted Moore for the movie, so there is not much point in me going too far into it. But the point remains that even MICHAEL MOORE, who was, for a long time, a Leftist sweetheart who was always reliable for attacking and “exposing” Republicans with documentaries, was attacked for straying from the hive mind surrounding green energy.
Moore was essentially tried as a traitor to the Left for that documentary, even as in that very movie, he still espoused the same Leftist beliefs about climate change he always did and ultimately argued in favor of population control to keep the amount of people who are “able” to “affect” the climate to a minimum.
So for Gavin Newsom to even slightly suggest that there are flaws the Left has overlooked in terms of the reliability of green energy, I can’t imagine many people would be too happy with him over this. Though, I have hardly heard anything about it, once again, because the entire story hurts the Leftist narrative surrounding green energy, so I doubt Newsom will experience much falling out with other Leftists over this admission.
Not that he’s wrong, of course. There definitely are PLENTY of flaws regarding so-called green energy, not only in terms of economic price but also in terms of practicality. It is IMPOSSIBLE for green energy to produce the amount of energy required to power up the entire state of California. And California is among the best-suited to try this sort of green energy tactic anyway!
They have a lot of natural advantages for using renewable energy. They get plenty of sun and nice weather, they get good wind flow, which is why they even have those wind farms in the first place, they are next to the biggest ocean in the world to try hydro and the state is very rich in natural resources.
California has all the advantages it could possibly need to try using so-called green energy sources, but the fact remains that the technology is not available for these sources to completely replace fossil fuels. Not only can they not produce the same output of energy as fossil fuels, but as Michael Moore’s documentary pointed out, they REQUIRE fossil fuels to even be used at all.
Solar panels require the mining of quartz and coal and fusing them together. This process requires the use of fossil fuels. Wind turbines have to be constructed with tools that require the use of fossil fuels. The two also require the mining of rare earth metals, again, a process which requires fossil fuels. Even ethanol requires fossil-fuel-based agricultural systems to produce corn, which fuels ethanol.
This is without even mentioning that wind and solar power plants take up a lot of arable land and often require terraforming, which also requires machinery which uses fossil fuels.
Green energy cannot output the same amount of power as fossil fuel can, and it requires fossil fuels to even be constructed and functional. There is ZERO logical reason to use solar, wind or whatever else in the stead of fossil fuels. The ONLY environmentally-friendly alternative to fossil fuels which can produce a good amount of power is nuclear, but the Left sees it as just as evil as coal and gas.
For Gavin Newsom to admit that there are shortcomings to green energy sources is quite surprising, all things considered. Even when faced with blackouts, I wouldn’t put it past Leftists to pretend nothing is wrong, or at least, ignore the actual reason for the blackouts. I mean, he’s even routinely blamed the California wildfires on CLIMATE CHANGE despite the many other actual reasons such wildfires start, such as lightning striking a tree and catching it on fire, or the heatwaves drying the leaves, making them easily-flammable, etc.
For him to make this admission is honestly surprising, though, again, as few people are talking about it, I doubt he would be tried as a heretic by the cult of climate change for saying what he said.
Still, to try and continue the transition to “100% renewable”, which is an outright myth as renewable energy requires fossil fuels to be created and operated, will only lead California to face more blackouts and power problems.
I just hope the people of California come to the realization, at some point or another, that Leftist policies lead not to prosperity but struggle, and will begin voting these communists out of office forever.

Considering how incessantly progressive Disney tries to be, what with pushing for showing gay couples in as many of their media as they can (despite the fact that their works are aimed at younger audiences, so this kind of thing corrupts their minds and souls), it’s surprising to discover this.
But it’s true: in a not particularly old Disney Channel show, the Leftist corporation talked about and DISMANTLED communism (or “commonism”, as the show puts it).
Disney Channel aired Girl Meets World from 2014 to 2017. For those of you who might find that title rather familiar, the show is essentially a sequel series to Boy Meets World from the 90’s. Girl Meets World follows the adventures of Riley Matthews, who in the show, is the daughter and student of Cory Matthews, the main protagonist of Boy Meets World.
In one of the episodes of this show, titled “Girl Meets Commonism”, Riley and two of her friends are caught cheating on a test and embrace the ideas of communism, believing that under that system, everyone is equal, so everyone gets the same grade (and good grades, specifically).
Riley and her friends even wear Russian-like attires and enclose their desk in a red rectangle (as shown above).
However, instead of pushing this as a good thing, the show gives the kids a reality check.
Following these ideals, Riley and her friends went into the next test being allowed to copy off of each other by their teacher (who is Riley’s dad). Upon receiving their tests back, they find they got a perfect score and got an A. However, despite this accomplishment, the three each get a C, because one A divided by three people is a C.
The three students are disappointed by this, with one of Riley’s friends asking how they could get a C when they scored 100%.
Cory explains that “when you get everything right but you don’t do it yourselves, it makes you average. A divided by three is a C. Look at you, you’re all the same. You’re average. You’re common.”
Riley then says: “Commonism. This is why it fell? People didn’t wanna all be the same?”
To which Cory responds: “Without incentive, there’s no motivation. Without motivation, there’s no advancement. In a truly free society, we share the best parts of ourselves without cheating. Because we get to learn who we are individually.”
I will get to the entire subject of communism in a second, but first, allow me to explain just why it is that I am talking about a show that ended three years ago and an episode that aired roughly four.
The particular clip where the events I just described took place recently resurfaced on Twitter, with the person who brought up the clip in the first place saying: “Reminder that Disney is actively giving your children anti-communist propaganda.”
The video clip has so far garnered more than 3 million views.
I had no idea this had happened back whenever this aired and never knew of it until now (mainly because I stopped watching Disney channel a long time ago). However, this made me think “wow, Disney is pretty cool.”
Now, that still doesn’t erase the fact that they have actively been giving children LEFTIST propaganda in the form of showing homosexual couples (usually lesbians, interestingly enough), be it on shows or movies, but this is at least one instance in which I actually side with Disney.
This isn’t anti-communist “propaganda.” It’s TRUTH.
The students were mad that they got caught cheating on a test and figured that in an ideal world, they could do that and still get good grades (which shows the low intellectual levels that it takes for someone to be a communist). They began dressing the same and push that they be allowed to cheat on a test to get the best results.
Their teacher obliged them, but only to teach them a valuable life lesson: communism is far from ideal.
Communists often claim that communism is about equality and fairness and justice. They say that it’s about everyone getting the same result regardless of amount of work or anything else. They say that it’s supposed to give the little guy a push and to get them to the top of the food chain, currently occupied by the wealthy.
Reality is far different from this, namely due to the very nature of man.
In communism, people are equal – equally miserable. Well, that’s not entirely true. In communism, the only people who aren’t miserable are the people in charge – the 1% of the population who dictate what happens and to whom. In communism, there is no fairness.
For the three students to have gotten 100%, one of them had to have had all the answers for the others to copy off of them. The person who actually knew the material and did the hard work would receive the same exact grade as the others who didn’t work nearly as hard. Regardless of whether they got an A or a C or even an F, how exactly is that fair for one person to do all the work and everyone to get the same grade?
Schools, for a long time, had this sort of system for grading group projects. And since the entire group would share a collective grade, there was no incentive for everyone to work so hard. Often times, one person would end up doing all the work for the whole group, or at least most of it, and the whole group got the same grade due to the one person’s work. How exactly is that fair? How is this just?
Everyone gets the same result, so what’s the point in working hard? And that’s the point in which it all begins to tumble down. Like Cory said, if there is no incentive, there is no motivation, and if there is no motivation, there is no advancement.
The ONLY reason we have the technology we have today is because there is an incentive to create and innovate. Capitalism gives people, workers and businesses an incentive to do well and be successful. Those who are successful see this in the form of wealth or popularity or both. When there is no incentive to work hard, there is no reason to work hard. When there is no motivation to do anything, nothing happens and no forward movement occurs.
In a communist society, the only incentive people have is to not get shot or arrested. In a communist society, people aren’t people, but a collective mass of beings indistinguishable from one another.
In a communist society, we are the Stormtroopers from Star Wars: all the same, no individualism. In a capitalist society, we are Obi Wan Kenobi, Yoda, Padme, Luke, Han Solo – individuals with value and worth.
The reason communism has killed over 100 million people is because people are not people, but tools, for the elite. And those who are not useful tools to the elite are disposed of. Those who defy the elite are disposed of. Those who even slightly piss off the elite are disposed of. Communism doesn’t value life.
It doesn’t value hard work. It doesn’t value individualism. It doesn’t value the things that make humans better, allow them to improve, and help them to grow.
Communism, or “commonism,” for the kids of the show, fell because it is outright antithetical to humanity. Communism is slavery. It’s slavery to the state. Humans have within themselves an innate desire for freedom.
Our very nature makes the supposed ideals of communism impossible. Not everyone can garner the same result and be content with it and actually make it work. That’s unrealistic. The workers cannot run a factory or a business, sharing the wealth of the business and the people who run it, without running that business into the ground.
Communism, by its very nature, is self-destructive to humanity. It cannot work, at least for long. Even the Soviet Union and China have had to allow for SOME capitalism (private property and ownership) in order to even slightly function.
I don’t know why Disney Channel chose to air that episode, considering it kind of runs contrary to their Leftist ideals, but I am glad that they did. The writers of the particular episode clearly demonstrated (some of) the major flaws in the ideas of communism.
Different levels of work should not warrant equal results, for such a thing destroys incentive. Destroying incentive destroys motivation. Destroying motivation destroys people’s ability and reason to improve.
In basketball, there is a saying: “Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.” Allen Iverson was talented, but he didn’t work hard, so his stint as an NBA player, particularly at the highest levels of competition, was short. Jimmy Butler is not insanely talented at basketball, but he works hard, so he’s a multiple-time All-Star and the first option on a perennial contending team. Michael Jordan was both talented and a hard worker, so he is remembered as a legend and the greatest player of all time.
The necessary ingredient for success is hard work, almost regardless of talent. But if there is no incentive to work hard, nothing gets done. Even taking away all of the other major flaws of communism, that alone destines any country that tries it to failure.
Again, I don’t know what the reasoning behind Disney airing an episode on this topic was, but I am glad that they did. It’s not propaganda – it’s TRUTH-TELLING.

I have often spoken to some extent or another about my own experiences having lived in socialist Argentina. I didn’t live there for too long (thank God), but I remember enough to know what it’s like to live under socialism, which is why I so adamantly and fervently speak out against the evil ideology.
Cuba is another country ravaged by communism and that is where the man I will speak about today, Maximo Alvarez, came from.
Cuba is straight-up communist and has been under a communist regime for the past 60 years. It wasn’t exactly great before, mind you, but communism has gripped the country and absolutely zero progress has been made in that country ever since, both in terms of politics and in terms of technology, etc. For crying out loud, the people still have to drive in the same cars our parents and grandparents drove back in the 1950s and 1960s!
Cuba is a communist country and the people that live in it, when they get the chance to get out, will adamantly speak against communism, having learned what it is, similarly to how people leaving Venezuela will often speak against socialism. Experience is everything, and once you experience communism, you understand how abhorrently oppressive it is.
The people clamoring for the ideology today are either people who have never actually experienced living under it, or are people who will benefit tremendously from it because they get to be the ones in total power. However, once people experience socialism/communism, their eyes are opened to the truth of how horrible it is and often times will want to do away with it, but cannot because communists disarm the populace long before they can rise up.
When the communist revolution in Cuba happened, according to Maximo Alvarez, a lot of people “swallowed the pill,” meaning that they believed each and every one of the promises made by Castro and the communists that were all lies.
But before we get to that, let me tell you some of what Alvarez shared about himself in this speech. During the round table discussion, Alvarez noted that in 1961, as a 13-year-old, Alvarez arrived to the States by himself because his parents, particularly his father, wanted a better life for him and his brother (who had been sent to Spain some time earlier than Alvarez).
In his speech, Alvarez generally spoke about how great this country is, noting that “everybody in the world wants to come over here. Nobody’s ever forced to come over here. We come over here, in my case because my parents chose that I would not be indoctrinated by the communist country, by the totalitarian country, by the totalitarian regime. They don’t educate children.”
And he is absolutely correct. Those who come here come here because they WANT to come here. People CHOOSE to come to the States because they want a better life for themselves. This is the only place in the world that can provide that for them.
And with regards to the communists indoctrinating children, that is also correct. For crying out loud, we are seeing it even here, in college campuses! Remember, young people tend to be rather patriotic until they go off to college, at which point the percentage of patriotic young people practically falls off a cliff. Our universities are not places of higher education, but rather, higher indoctrination of Marxist ideology.
At any rate, Alvarez continued, noting that Castro made plenty of promises to people, and even tried hiding the fact that he was a communist, until he actually got to power. “I remember vividly all the promises that a guy named Castro gave, and how 99% of the people swallowed the pill. It took many years later, after I read somebody named Saul Alinksy, that I realized that all those people were nothing but useful idiots.”
Alinsky, for those who don’t know, was an American communist famous for quotes such as: “Control healthcare and you control the people,” and “They have the guns and therefore we are for peace and for reformation through the ballot. When we have the guns then it will be through the bullet.”
Communism is not a logical or rational ideology. It is an evil ideology that promises paradise on earth, and in doing so, grip the hearts of plenty of people (because who wouldn’t want to live in paradise, especially if you don’t believe in Heaven?) and through emotions, uses such idiotic people to achieve its ends. The people leading such communist revolutions (and there always has to be a revolution for it to happen) are the ones who benefit, but particularly the main guy who leads the revolution.
Today, we see such useful idiots like people supporting BLM, Antifa, etc. and even the people belonging to those groups themselves. The useful idiots will destroy statues, attack people verbally and/or physically, and demand systemic change away from capitalism, which they foolishly view as evil, and towards communism, which they foolishly view as good. When the dust settles and the system is actually changed to communism, however, such useful idiots are usually the first ones to be eliminated.
Alvarez continued by pointing out that Castro fooled people into believing he wasn’t actually a communist by posing as a Catholic (does that not remind you of a certain New York governor, a certain Speaker of the House and a certain Senator from Vermont, who uses Judaism to hide his communism?) and only revealed his communism once he was in power.
“I remember Castro while in the mountains being interviewed and asked if he was a communist. He went crazy. ‘How dare you’, he says… [a] Roman Catholic. Educated by the Jesuits, he was. ‘How dare you! We even have a priest in the mountains.’”
Often times, communists hide the fact that they are communists until they feel that it’s not necessary to do so any longer.
Much of this, basically all of it, we are seeing happen in this country. The useful idiots, the empty promises of “free education”, “free healthcare”, “free land”, the communists hiding that they are communists, etc.
This is why he was so adamant about speaking out on this, because he is seeing the same thing happen here as he saw in Cuba in the 1950s and 60s.
“My God, no freedom. But [Castro] never said that until after he was in power, got rid of all the police, got rid of all the military – been there for the last 60 years and counting. And he destroyed each and every one who helped him. The Catholic church, everybody.”
One of the many interesting things he said in his speech was his description of his father, who was very smart, fled Spain when it was going through its own communist revolution, went to Cuba and could tell right away that Castro was a communist, even when he was pretending he wasn’t.
There were two aspects that stood out to me about how Maximo described his father. One was that the guy could have enjoyed the fruits of his labor, having owned golf courses, but gave it up to afford his family a better life in a better place that wouldn’t be destroyed by communism. Maximo notes that Trump is “exactly the same,” a guy who had it made, could have enjoyed the fruits of his labor, but decided to sacrifice it for something bigger than himself.
And this is an aspect a lot of people I feel do not appreciate about Trump. They will say that he is an egomaniac, selfish, narcissist, etc., but his actions do not reflect such a profile. The guy, like I said, had it made. His family was set for as long as they had money and a means to earn more of it. Generations of Trumps would have been just fine, financially, by Donald Trump not running for President and just remaining a real estate mogul, owning multiple high-end buildings, golf courses, etc. and doing whatever else he could to make more money.
He had ZERO obligation to do any of the things he has been doing for the past four years. He had no obligation at all to run for POTUS. But he chose to forsake such a life of extreme luxury that even escapes a president in order to do something for the country that he loves. He wanted to be president, not in order to gain anything, because in reality, he only stands to lose by doing so, but in order to Make America Great Again.
Choosing to run for president has all but ruined everything Trump had been building for his whole life. He is loved by many, yes, but he is also hated by many, when before, that wasn’t the case. He was loved both by Democrats, having donated to them and championed their causes (to some extent, particularly as they were not openly as radical back then as they are now) and loved by Republicans, having also donated to some of them and being the embodiment of a Republican’s dream in this country.
In choosing to become president, he has gotten roughly half the country to hate him, believing that he is a racist and all these other things that he is definitely not, and has jeopardized his family’s ability to make money by the vitriol that communists have for his very name and brand, and he, himself, only loses money by being president, not taking a salary for his work.
If there ever was anyone who did not have to be president and only stood to lose by becoming president, it’s Donald Trump, and yet, he forsook that life of luxury just to be able to save a country he loved and he viewed as worth saving. In his position, I don’t know if I would have done the same. Not to say I don’t love this country, but that is to say that I don’t know or think I would have made so many sacrifices for the mere chance of saving the country. Keep in mind, his reputation was being tarnished just by him RUNNING for office, let alone obtaining it. Had he lost, he likely would be ruined by now, and once he leaves office, the Left will most likely come after him with everything they’ve got and he will no longer have a presidential immunity to being indicted.
Maximo Alvarez loves Trump because that aspect is a lot like his father: someone willing to take great chance, at their own peril, for something bigger than themselves.
The other thing that Alvarez noted about his father that also stood out to me was something he once told to Maximo: “Don’t lose this place because you’re never going to be as lucky as me. Because if you lose this place, you have no place to go.”
That, to me, struck me as extremely Reagan-esque because those words are almost verbatim what Reagan once said: “If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on Earth.”
Maximo’s father likely loved Reagan, as Maximo loves Trump. The two presidents are people who value this country for its freedoms and know that we must fight to preserve them. Granted, I think Trump mostly saw America in economic shambles and wanted to make it great again based on that, but I think Trump’s 2020 message is, or at least, it should be, about saving America not from economic turbulence but from the ideological evil that is communism.
The Left has made itself known to all about who they are. They want communism and they want it now. They will do whatever it takes to get what they want. Trump, I think, understands that he is a buffer for America against such communism. He stands practically all alone against communism and I think he needs to accentuate that fact in his campaigning.
Alvarez knows what it’s like to live under communism and is seeing Americans spewing the same bullcrap that communists spewed in Cuba. My own family also mentions that the things people like Bernie Sanders and other communists are promising were promises that were made to Argentinians and are promises that are still being made to them, despite the fact that socialism is the law of the land.
What we are seeing in America today is what people living in socialism and communism saw decades prior. We know what socialism and communism is and does. It’s a regressive, highly oppressive regime that destroys people’s souls, jails them for being out of line with the regime’s beliefs, and is overall a cancer on this earth. And we are seeing useful idiots on TikTok, Twitter, other social media and in real life altogether espousing beliefs they know nothing about, believing communism lifts people up when in reality, it brings people down.
America must never be allowed to fall to communism, because if it does, there is no place else on earth to go to. I just hope people realize how important our freedom is before it is taken away from us.
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.”
