Another False Narrative
The narrative that we have been given by the left-wing media for the last six months about what happened on that tragic night in Louisville when Breonna Taylor died was completely wrong.
The narrative that we have been given by the left-wing media for the last six months about what happened on that tragic night in Louisville when Breonna Taylor died was completely wrong. Our hearts break for Ms. Taylor’s family. She should not have died.
But the evidence was submitted to a grand jury, and on every major point the media and their progressive allies were spreading false information.
- The police did not go to the wrong address.
- It was not a no-knock warrant.
- The police officers identified themselves.
- They entered the house and her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, fired first, shooting an officer in the leg.
There is zero evidence that the tragic events resulting in Taylor’s death had anything to do with race.
The “no-knock raid” aspect of this case is so disturbing to many people, including conservatives, that Kentucky Senator Rand Paul introduced federal legislation to ban no-knock warrants and named the legislation after Taylor.
Daniel Cameron, the conservative black attorney general of Kentucky who announced the grand jury’s decision, also announced the facts that were contrary to the left’s false narratives. I urge you to watch his announcement.
The left insists that Taylor was a victim of unacceptable police violence. Well, a grand jury determined otherwise. Officers returned fire after they were fired on.
Knowing full well the poisoned atmosphere we are in, commentators at CNN and MSNBC threw gasoline on the fire they knew was smoldering in Louisville and in other U.S. cities. They ignored the facts and declared that racist police killed another black woman and nothing would happen to them.
In fact, one CNN legal analyst went so far as to suggest that Attorney General Cameron “undermined his credibility” when he condemned mob violence. Another MSNBC commentator denounced Cameron as “skinfolk but not kinfolk.” In other words, he may have black skin, but he’s not really black, as Joe Biden might put it.
This is how extreme the so-called “progressive left” has become.
By the way, radical anti-Semite Linda Sarsour is in Louisville, stirring up trouble. And there is evidence that Soros-funded rent-a-mobs were also involved in Wednesday’s violence.
After enough gasoline was poured on the fire, and a sniper attempted to murder two Louisville officers, the Biden campaign finally issued a statement saying violence wasn’t acceptable.
High Chance of Survival
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently released five pandemic planning scenarios to help assist government health officials in making their decisions. These planning scenarios haven’t gotten much attention, but they should. What’s most revealing are the projected COVID-19 fatality rates based on various age groups.
Here are the fatality rates based on what the CDC predicts is the most likely outcome:
- 0-19 years: 0.00003
- 20-49 years: 0.0002
- 50-69 years: 0.005
- 70+ years: 0.054
In other words, the survivability rates for these respective age groups are:
- 0-19: 99.997%
- 20-49: 99.98%
- 50-69: 99.5%
- 70+: 94.6%
Clearly, the virus is a threat to those over 70 years of age. But the vast majority of Americans are not at serious risk. We also know this is true because in spite of the daily hysteria about COVID outbreaks on college campuses in recent days, there have been virtually no serious cases.
Dr. Andrew Bostom analyzed the data and discovered that out of more than 48,000 reported cases of coronavirus among college students there were only two hospitalizations and zero deaths.
Meanwhile, Dr. Robert Redfield, the director of the CDC, testified before the Senate and told senators that “more than 90% of the population remains susceptible” to COVID-19.
In other words, Dr. Redfield believes that 10% of the population has already had it. If 10% has had it, that’s 30 million people who have had COVID-19. But there have been 200,000 deaths. That’s a death rate of approximately 0.7%, less than one percent. For perspective, a bad flu season is about 0.50%.
Meanwhile, there were nearly 850,000 COVID tests administered around the country Wednesday. Out of those tests, just under 40,000 new cases were discovered, for a 5% positivity rate.
Wednesday, 1,138 deaths were attributed to the coronavirus, well less than half of the spring peak.
Nothing to See Here
The Biden campaign and its big media allies are well on their way to making the shocking Senate report about the corruption of the Biden family a one-day story. So, it’s always useful do a little thought experiment.
What do you think the media atmosphere would be like today if the Senate produced a report finding that Eric Trump received a $3.5 million payment from the wife of the former mayor of Moscow and had paid for prostitutes who may have been involved in human trafficking?
I suspect we’d be on the verge of another impeachment inquiry.
Whether it’s Hunter Biden, Chris Heinz (John Kerry’s stepson), or Chelsea Clinton, it must be wonderful to be the child of a prominent Democrat politician. Once your parents have served in office, you’ve got it made without any evidence that you can actually produce anything.
Trump’s children were successful in their own right and long before he ran for office. In fact, their father’s political career has cost them money.
So Democrat kids get big fat contracts from questionable foreign entities, while the sons and daughters of conservatives lose their contracts.
The Biden campaign strategy is hard to explain. They seem to think that they are being successful by making the election a referendum on Trump, as if Biden has nothing to do with the race. So he’s being kept up “under wraps,” perhaps so there’s less risk of Biden making himself the news. But more and more liberals are questioning this strategy.
Even the left-wing New York Times is complaining. This headline says it all: “When Joe Biden’s In Town, But It’s Hard To Tell.” The Times article goes on to note that Biden’s campaign appearances are “scarcely publicized” and often “quiet, eerie and almost entirely fan-free.”
Biden’s Florida campaign is almost entirely dependent on billionaire Michael Bloomberg, who may well be in trouble for essentially paying ex-felons to vote for Joe Biden.
Perhaps most disturbing, the Democrat presidential nominee almost never takes questions from the press. Perhaps there’s a growing fear of what might happen if someone asks a question his teleprompter can’t answer!
