Black Lives Matter Co-Founder Buys $1.4 Million Home in Town That’s 1.4% Black

Black Lives Matter Co-Founder Buys $1.4 Million Home in Town That’s 1.4% Black. By Matt Palumbo.

A secluded mini-compound tucked into L.A.’s rustic and semi-remote Topanga Canyon was recently sold for a tad more than $1.4 million to a corporate entity that public records show is controlled by Patrisse Khan-Cullors, 37-year-old social justice visionary and co-founder of the galvanizing and, for some, controversial Black Lives Matter movement.

Kahn-Cullors, … co-founder of Black Lives Matter Toronto, created the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag in 2013 in response to George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the 2012 shooting of Trayvon Martin. … Kahn-Cullors’ published “When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir” in 2018.

Steve Sailer:

The co-founder of Black Lives Matter has found a personal solution for the big black crime wave that she has done so much to instigate. …

The amusing thing is that Topanga Canyon is culturally the whitest spot in the Los Angeles area: it’s been a semi-rural hippie enclave for bohemian artists since the 1960s. The last time I went hiking there, I saw Emmy Lou Harris out for a hike. …

It’s perhaps the safest non-gated community in Los Angeles County for staying far, far away from black crime. Topanga was only 1.4% black in the 2010 Census and 84.5% non-Hispanic white, which is very white for L.A. County. Of course, Black Lives Matter has gotten thousands of incremental blacks murdered by other blacks, but Ms. Khan-Cullors’ black life matters enough to stay secluded from other blacks.

Woke religion hypocrisy for fun and profit. Facts mean nothing.

Biden wants to take your guns, but leave criminals with theirs

Biden wants to take your guns, but leave criminals with theirs. By Tucker Carlson.

Nothing the Democratic Party advocates for is more dishonest than gun control. Everything about that specific issue is false. Most policy debates aren’t like that, and we try to be honest about it. No matter how passionate you are about a position, you can still sort of see what the other side is talking about.

You might deeply dislike taxes, for example, but you can still acknowledge it’s fair to charge people for the services they receive from government. The other side isn’t crazy, they’ve just arrived at a different number than you did. You can hate abortion (and we do) and still understand (again, if you’re being totally honest about it) why a scared pregnant teenager might be tempted to have one.

Gun control is not like that. Gun control is entirely fraudulent. The Democratic Party claims that guns cause violence. That’s the core claim, and it is a lie. It’s provably untrue. The places in this country that have the most guns and the loosest controls on those guns also have the least gun violence and the fewest killings. That’s the bottom line. You could look it up; the statistics are available to anyone.

Anyone who tries to restrict your legally owned firearms is not trying to make America safer. The point is to disarm you and strip you of your autonomy, your power, your right to self-defense.

Gun control is not about guns. Gun control is about who controls America. Is it the population, as in a democracy, or does all control go to a small group of authoritarians, as in an oligarchy? Those are the stakes in the gun control debate. …

With that in mind, Joe Biden’s speech Thursday calling for more gun control should make you uncomfortable. Almost nothing the president said was true. For example, he claimed that firearms purchased at gun shows are exempt from background checks. That’s a lie, as anyone who’s ever been to a gun show can tell you. Biden also claimed that gun manufacturers have total immunity against lawsuits. That’s also a lie. Gun manufacturers get sued all the time, just ask them. And so on. It was a speech aimed to mislead rather than to inform. Before he announced how he plans to restrict your Second Amendment rights, Joe Biden wanted to remind you that those rights are not real in the first place. They are not, as he put it, “absolute.” …

With a single stroke of a pen, Joe Biden just turned tens of millions of overwhelmingly Republican voters into criminals. Is it starting to make sense now?

Think about that for a minute and you’ll begin to understand why the Democratic Party is so focused on what they call “weapons of war.” You might know them as semiautomatic, small-caliber sporting rifles that normal people use for hunting and target shooting and home defense.

Here’s the thing: No subject is more carefully cataloged than gun violence. Guns like these so-called “weapons of war” play no meaningful role in crime. Virtually all gun murders in this country are committed with handguns (again, don’t take our word for it, you can look this up). A small number of people are responsible for most of the violence and they use a small variety of weapons to commit it (again, you can look this up). Those weapons are not rifles. …

Criminals don’t use rifles. They’re not concealable. Maybe that’s why, in fact, more people were murdered with knives than with rifles. …

So if you actually cared about making the country safer and keeping people from getting murdered, you would target handguns in big cities. That’s where the murders are. That’s where the violence is. But the Biden administration is doing the opposite of this, the mirror image of this. The Biden administration is letting big city criminals go. People who use guns for violence are walking out of jail. And instead, the Biden administration is using the full force of government to disarm peaceful voters in zip codes that voted for Donald Trump. It is that simple. …

Thursday, Biden announced that he wants to ban what he called “assault weapons.” He was speaking about the AR 15, the single most popular sporting rifle in America. So the question is: If we banned so-called assault weapons, would the country become safer? We don’t need to guess about the answer because we tried this before under Bill Clinton. For ten full years, we banned assault rifles and then, by law, the Department of Justice studied the effects. Once that ban expired in 2004, gun homicides fell in almost every major city (again, you can look this up). So policies like this one are unhinged from reality, to put it gently.

Luckily, to enforce them. Joe Biden nominated a man who is unhinged from reality. His name is David Chipman, and he will now run the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) …

Why is David Chipman allowed to decide how many rounds you’re allowed in your magazine? What does he know about that? Is he in charge of protecting your family? Does he live in your neighborhood? Are your children his responsibility? It’s outrageous. But worse than that is, it’s theater. It’s not real. People like David Chipman aren’t opposed to gun violence. In fact, people like David Chipman, his party, certainly are making gun violence possible in this country.

We can give you many examples, but here’s just one from Washington D.C.: The city is planning to stop enforcing gun laws. The party that thinks guns cause violence is no longer pulling them off the street. Why? Because it’s racially insensitive to do so.

The FBI statistics quite clearly show that white Americans have a gun homicide rate similar to European and other white countries, while black Americans have a much higher gun homicide rate, similar to African countries. But that fact clashes with the woke religion, so it has been forbidden so long not many people realize it any more.

We are just told over and over that American gun violence is out of control, so the government must take guns from whites. Why? It’s so transparent.

ADL wants Fox News host Tucker Carlson FIRED, claiming he defended ‘white replacement theory’ in discussing immigration

ADL wants Fox News host Tucker Carlson FIRED, claiming he defended ‘white replacement theory’ in discussing immigration. By RT.

Anti-Defamation League chief Jonathan Greenblatt accused Fox News host Tucker Carlson of championing an “antisemitic, racist and toxic” idea in a guest appearance on the network, but seems to have not actually watched the segment.

“Tucker must go,” Greenblatt tweeted on Friday above a video clip of Carlson’s guest appearance on Mark Steyn’s primetime show the evening before. The clip was posted by Media Matters for America (MMFA) researcher Nikki McCann Ramirez, who said Carlson gave a “passionate defense” of “white replacement theory.”

The outraged ADL CEO called it a “white supremacist tenet that the white race is in danger by a rising tide of non-whites” that is “antisemitic, racist and toxic.” …

Had he actually watched the nearly two-minute segment, Greenblatt might have heard Carlson literally deny that his position had anything to do with the notion.

“Everyone wants to make a racial issue out of it: Oooh, the ‘white replacement theory’ – No, no no. This is a voting rights question,” Carlson told Steyn.

He even prefaced the comment by saying that “the left and all the little gatekeepers on Twitter become literally hysterical” if anyone uses the term “replacement” to describe what he said was the Democrats importing immigrants to “dilute” the votes of existing Americans — of all colors and creeds, he implied. …

Last month, CNN declared Carlson “the new Donald Trump” – seeking to cast the Fox News host as the mainstream media’s new object of hate after the 45th US president was banished from the public sphere. …

Tucker Carlson Tonight’ … was the most-watched cable news program of the week, according to the latest Nielsen Research numbers. This helped Fox “dominate” other basic cable networks by a wide margin – with 2.2 million average primetime viewers compared to the 1.6 million of runner-up MSNBC.

CNN was bringing up the rear with a mere million average viewers, in sixth place behind the sports channel ESPN and Home and Garden TV.

Some truths cannot be mentioned any more. Only the fantasies of the new woke religion are allowed in public.

If they can cancel Trump as soon as he leaves office, they can cancel Tucker. And so on down the line. The nail that sticks out furthest will get hit the hardest, until no nails stick out — unless we all stick out!

Hunter Biden: What they kept hidden before the election

Hunter Biden: What they kept hidden before the election. By Josh Boswell.

Hunter Biden’s ‘tell-all’ autobiography promised the unvarnished story of his struggles with drugs, family turmoil and his controversial love life.

But there were many shocking details of his debauched life that the president’s son chose not to share with readers, including details of his fragile relationship with his father.

Now DailyMail.com can reveal the secrets Hunter chose not to divulge, exposed in the contents of his abandoned laptop and verified by top forensics experts.

The bombshell cache of 103,000 text messages, 154,000 emails, more than 2,000 photos and dozens of videos are packed with revelations conveniently missing from the memoir, including:

  • How he begged his father to run for president in 2019 to salvage Hunter’s own reputation
  • How he repeatedly dodged police action against him, despite constantly dealing with drug pushers and prostitutes and having multiple run-ins with law enforcement
  • Hunter was guarded by a Secret Service agent while on a 2018 drug and prostitute binge in Hollywood, despite not being entitled to protection at the time and amid denials from the federal agency
  • Joe Biden was afraid his text conversations with Hunter were being hacked even as they discussed his White House bid
  • How Hunter’s laptop is brimming with evidence of apparent criminal activity by Hunter and his associates including drug trafficking and prostitution …

Hunter Biden has meth mouth

Among the 103,199 text messages on the hard drive dating from 2016 to March 2019 are fraught conversations between President Joe Biden and his son.

The texts reveal how Joe was sucked into his son’s torrid love life, became a punching bag for Hunter’s drug-fueled rants, and paid his grandchildren’s bills when Hunter had drained his bank accounts from his spending on prostitutes and crack cocaine.

When the former Delaware senator was elected Vice President in 2008, it put an end to Hunter’s lucrative career as a lobbyist to avoid the appearance of conflicts of interest.

Hunter then embarked on a series of controversial business ventures and fell into a cycle of crack and prostitute binges, scandal and rehab.

By 2019 his texts appeared to be seething with resentment. …

Hunter appeared to be obsessed with making and starring in porn films with prostitutes, videos and photos on his laptop show. The hard drive contains hundreds of pictures of naked women and naked selfies of Hunter, as well as dozens of videos. …

Texts show he would often order drugs to hotel rooms and take them with the women before or after sex – and photos include bottles of 100mg Viagra pills, the highest dose prescribed by doctors. His Pornhub account had 66 award badges, including a badge for reaching 50 subscribers, watching 500 videos, and watching porn in high definition. …

A bill from The Jeremy Hotel in West Hollywood obtained by DailyMail.com shows that Hunter stayed in a third-floor suite for seven days from May 19 2018, holed up ordering room service each night, drinking at the hotel bar and racking up a $5,195 bill – including a $400 fine for smoking in his room. … Emails from May 24 show Hunter added a prostitute as a wire transfer recipient on his bank account and wired out $25,000.

Above the law:

His son’s drug-fueled calamities have resulted in multiple run-ins with law enforcement that would usually result in criminal charges or investigation, but Hunter has so far avoided the dock.

His laptop, which was handed over to the FBI in 2019, is brimming with evidence of apparent criminal activity by Hunter and his associates including drug trafficking and prostitution. …

Hunter did come under investigation after he dropped off a rental car in Prescott, Arizona, leaving behind a crack pipe and white powder, his drivers license and his late brother Beau’s attorney general badge. … Despite being dubbed the state’s ‘foremost pot prohibitionist’, County Attorney Sheila Polk declined to prosecute.

And that’s not even mentioning his business dealings with Ukraine and China, for which the Biden family — including the President — received millions of dollars for influence peddling.

 

Amazon Is Protecting Hunter Biden’s Memoir From Bad Reviews

Amazon Is Protecting Hunter Biden’s Memoir From Bad Reviews. By Matt Margolis.

My book, The Worst President in History: The Legacy of Barack Obama, is routinely targeted by the Left for bogus negative reviews. Roughly 25 percent of the book’s reviews have always been bogus one-star reviews that are not tagged as a “verified purchase” that simply accuse me of being racist, claim the book is poorly researched (it has over 1,000 endnotes), or involve some other attack. Since its original publication in 2016, the percentage of these bogus reviews appears virtually unchanged.

I’ve made many complaints to Amazon over the years for the incredible number of undeniably bogus reviews that make it through the company’s screening process.

So, I was incredibly shocked to discover that while Amazon took no interest in protecting my book from bogus reviews, that it has chosen to protect others.

On Wednesday, PJ Media reported that A Rhythm of Prayer: A Collection of Meditations for Renewal, a best-selling daily devotional, contained a prayer called, “Prayer of a Weary Black Woman” that asks God to “help me to hate white people.”

If you thought you could march over to Amazon and give the book a bad review, don’t bother. When you try to review the book, the following notice appears:

“Amazon has noticed unusual reviewing activity on this product. Due to this activity, we have limited this product to verified purchase reviews.”

In an attempt to determine if this was an isolated incident, I decided to see what would happen if I attempted to post reviews on other books. Most of the time, Amazon would allow me to write a review. Conservative or liberal, it didn’t matter. I was absolutely able to post a review on a book I had not read.

Except for one.

When I tried to write a review of Hunter Biden’s memoir Beautiful Things, I got the same notice as the racist devotional book.

Well, isn’t that nice? Hunter Biden’s book is also being protected from negative reviews by Amazon. That must be nice.

Today’s blacklisted American: Cinderella, because cast was “too white”

Today’s blacklisted American: Cinderella, because cast was “too white”. By Robert Zimmerman.

A theater company in Minnesota decided to cancel its production of the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical Cinderella because the cast was “too white.” …

Your culture is now cancelled. Not brown enough.

“It was 98 percent white,” the theater’s director, Michael Brindisi, said of the show’s actors Wednesday. “That doesn’t work with what we’re saying we’re going to do.” Brindisi said he considered recasting but instead decided to put a self-inflicted spin on cancel culture — and “scrap this and start fresh with a clean slate.”

“Recasting” is a mealy mouthed word that really means he would have fired some white actors he had already chosen and replaced them with black actors. And the only reason he would be firing them is because of their skin color, since he had already done his auditions and decided that these people were qualified.

I suspect he realized that if he did that he’d be vulnerable to some really bad publicity, even court suits. Better to fire everyone, start casting a different play where he could begin with a quota system favoring minorities. That way no one would have evidence of his bigotry. …

People are starting to mention it:

America’s social fabric cannot long sustain such unjust behavior. Sooner or later the oppressed will revolt, and it will likely do so violently. We will have race war, caused not by the fake boogie-man of “white supremacy” but by the bigotry of our ruling culture, which has decided that all whites are evil and must be oppressed.

Cinderella is a French story. Until recently, virtually all the people in France were white.

It turns out that racism and equity are pretty much the same thing. Who knew?

It turns out that racism and equity are pretty much the same thing. Who knew? By Tucker Carlson.

You know what people care about most by what’s at the top of their to-do list, and on his very first day in office, Joe Biden signed something called an Executive Order on advancing racial equity and support for underserved communities. You ought to go read it. Go ahead and see if you can figure out what it means.

The document uses the term “equity” a total of 21 times and yet, revealingly never defines the word. So what is equity? Joe Biden never tells us, never even hints. He sort of proclaims that America will be getting, quote, “an ambitious whole of government equity agenda.”

So whatever it is, equity is ambitious, and it will be everywhere, but we’re not allowed to know what it is. That’s odd.

For three months, we’ve been trying to guess: what is this equity that is now our country’s main reason for existing? We know it’s not the same as equality or even closely related. In the name of equity, for example, the Biden administration supports open discrimination against Asian college applicants. They’re Asian, therefore they can’t get into school. It is that simple.

We used to call that kind of behavior, racism. We had laws against it. Now, we call it equity, and we have laws demanding it. It turns out that racism and equity are pretty much the same thing. Who knew?

Diners Chant “Get Out” as Health Officials Try to Shut Down Restaurant

Diners Chant “Get Out” as Health Officials Try to Shut Down Restaurant in Vancouver. By Paul Joseph Watson.

A video out of Vancouver shows diners chanting “get out!” as health officials try to shut down a restaurant that opened in violation of COVID-19 lockdown laws.

And just like that, the officials turned tail and fled.

Standing up to the state.

An easy win for the non-left, if they but had the courage to seize it

An easy win for the non-left, if they but had the courage to seize it. By Deion Kathawa.

The transgenderism skirmish that broke out into the open in President Obama’s second term should be an insanely easy fight for the Republican Party to win. The Right has been thrashed mercilessly in the culture wars for decades. But at this stage in the conflict, the low-hanging fruit has all been plucked, and the Left has finally begun to overreach. It is now coming for our children in very direct, very obvious, and very harmful ways.

Which is why it is astonishing that Republican leaders such as [Arkansas Governor] Asa Hutchinson find it so difficult to say plainly, “It is wrong and harmful to destroy healthy sex organs and thereby to castrate healthy bodies — but especially so in the case of minors. And the government will act accordingly to prevent people from harming themselves in this specific way.”

That is a winning position, especially when we are talking about minors. …

A massive percentage of these children will desist from their feeling that they are transgender if they are simply left alone. …

I might even be so bold as to say that it does not even require an argument. A simple, direct, declarative sentence like the following would do nicely: “Mutilating children — even when doctors say it is ‘necessary’ — is wrong.” Done.

Arkansas’s Republican Governor recently vetoed a bill outlawing chemical castration and puberty blockers, on the grounds that he wanted smaller government, and government should not interfere with the relationship between a child, their parents, and their doctors.

Ok, it’s a reasonable principle, but are the opposing principles? What are the tradeoffs? When asked by Tucker Carlson why the state bans drinking under 18, sex under 16, and so on, the Governor didn’t answer the question. No balance attempted.

His veto leaves children vulnerable to fads and quacks. As the evidence about the effects of this new craze piles up, it clearly shows that the effects on most children are quite negative. It’s pretty obvious.

Girl Rushed To Hospital For Emergency Gender Reassignment Surgery After Showing Up To School With A G.I. Joe

Girl Rushed To Hospital For Emergency Gender Reassignment Surgery After Showing Up To School With A G.I. Joe. By the Babylon Bee.

A local 3rd-grade girl was rushed to Mission Hospital today after she showed up to school with a G.I. Joe — an action figure typically played with by boys. She is currently undergoing emergency surgery to become a boy. …

When asked whether Abby’s parents would be notified, the superintendent replied: “Goodness, no. Her parents don’t need to hear about any of that. They’re probably religious weirdos anyway. No, these decisions are best left to experts like us.”

According to sources, Abby returned to school later that day as “Abe,” (he/him).

Horrified at what had happened, the other girls in Abby’s class silently vowed never to show up to school with a boy’s toy.

Indigenous Australians and the prison of selective outrage

Indigenous Australians and the prison of selective outrage. By Jacinta Price.

This year marks 30 years since the final report of the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody, initiated on the premise that racism must have been playing a principal role in these deaths.

No such finding was made and the report found no evidence of widespread racism. Also, contrary to the widely held belief that proportionately more Aboriginal Australians die in custody than non-Indigenous Australians, it was found this was not the case.

As David Biles, who led the commission’s criminology research group for three years, wrote in 2016, there was proof “Aboriginal people were slightly less likely to die in prison or police custody than non-Aboriginal people”, and this has not changed. …

It was found that most deaths occurring in custody resulted from natural causes, followed by self-harm, then abuse of drugs and alcohol. …

To suggest that we can’t solve our own problems, that we are nothing more than victims, is racism of the worst kind.

The most overlooked statement in the report of the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody is the most important: “Only Aboriginal people can in the final analysis assure their own future.” …

Aboriginals commit more crimes than … who exactly? Low IQ whites?

Between 1989 and 2012, 951 Indigenous lives were lost to homicide. Of these, 765 were killed by Indigenous perpetrators, and 67 per cent of those were classified as domestic homicides. Where is the outrage?

The Australian Institute of Criminology reported in 2019 that “Indigenous people were around eight times more likely than non-Indigenous people to commit a domestic assault that was reported to the police”. Indigenous children are likelier to be victims of child abuse, neglect and sexual abuse and exposed to family violence at a far greater rate than non-Indigenous children. These crimes, as well as the lack of respect for property rights, result in the horrific levels of incarceration of Aboriginal Australians …

The real nature of the “problem”:

As long as Aboriginal leaders and academics insist, without clear evidence, that it is all caused by racism and colonisation and continue to ignore the real causes, we cannot begin to reduce homicide, violence and sexual abuse and, in turn, incarceration rates.

Why do we insist governments alone can solve our problems?

Because that’s where the money is. Governments solve problems by spending or handing out money, which is strong motivation to show there is a problem, and even to exaggerate or make stuff up.

(That’s the reason for many, though not all, current “problems”.)

Gripen for Australia: the Solution to the F-35 Nightmare

Gripen for Australia: the Solution to the F-35 Nightmare. By David Archibald.

The F-35 has some particular shortcomings with respect to operating in northern Australia. It requires plugin power in the hangar of a particular voltage, and plugin airconditioning at a particular temperature and humidity. …

The F-35 needs a long runway to land. Lockheed Martin has not stated what runway length the F-35 needs, but the runway at Williamstown RAAF base was lengthened from 8,000 feet to 10,000 feet so that F-35 pilots could train there. Modern fighter aircraft can take off in 2,000 feet by comparison.

The practical impact of that is that there are only a handful of airfields in northern Australia from which the F-35 could operate, as shown by this graphic:

In comparison, the Gripen is designed to

operate according to the constraints of its dispersed wartime basing systems to be able to take off and land on road runways in the hinterlands and be turned around, rearmed and refueled by a team of conscripts. Design features call for the rapid field removal and replacement of engines, the ability to access aircraft systems by ground crews wearing gloves in the coldest of winters and an auxiliary power unit that keeps aircraft systems and communications up and running during the turnaround process so that the aircrew can maintain situational awareness of the air battle above while they are still on the ground.
