Tuesday News Executive Summary

Jordan Candler  Above the Fold

Notwithstanding the bogus premise of the New York Times’s 1619 Project, the Washington Examiner’s Tiana Lowe reports that “Nikole Hannah-Jones … won this year’s Pulitzer Prize for Commentary, for her piece, ‘Our democracy’s founding ideals were false when they were written. Black Americans have fought to make them true.’” The Nobel and Pulitzer Prizes are two peas in a pod — both are tainted by a political process.

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam is being challenged in court by Lighthouse Fellowship Church for undermining religious liberty. According to the  Washington Examiner, the lawsuit “arose after police broke up Lighthouse’s Palm Sunday service and charged Kevin Wilson, the church’s pastor, with a misdemeanor for violating Northam’s order.” The DOJ sympathizes with the church and, unless Virginia can somehow justify its decision (which it can’t), supports Wilson. DOJ official Matthew Schneider chimed in, “It is … important for states to remember that we do not abandon all of our freedoms in times of emergency.”

New York City Council Speaker Corey Johnson, who is anything but inclusive, bellowed on Friday: “It is time for Samaritan’s Purse to leave NYC. This group, led by the notoriously bigoted, hate-spewing Franklin Graham, came at a time when our city couldn’t in good conscience turn away any offer of help. That time has passed. Their continued presence here is an affront to our values of inclusion, and is painful for all New Yorkers who care deeply about the LGBTQ community.” The irony is that the leadership of Samaritan’s Purse — just like Chick-fil-A — does not and never would discriminate against someone suffering from gender dysphoria. Yet both organizations are constantly discriminated against.

Secretary of Senate says cannot comply with loose lips liar-Biden request to release records on purported Reade complaint

By Chad Pergram & Tyler Olson{foxnews.com } ~ The secretary of the Senate on Monday said her office cannot comply with a request by Democratic presidential nominee  loose lips liar-Joe Biden to order a search for a purported complaint… made by the woman accusing him of sexual assault when he was a senator. In a statement, Julie Adams said their legal counsel has reviewed the relevant statute governing such records and advised that “the Secretary has no discretion to disclose any such information as requested in Vice President loose lips liar-Biden’s letter of May 1.” The statement cited the law’s confidentiality requirements and past Senate guidance. This comes after loose lips liar-Biden on Friday called on the secretary to essentially resolve confusion over where personnel complaints from the 1990s would be held, after demanding hours earlier that any complaint from former staffer Tara Reade be located and released.  https://www.foxnews.com/politics/secretary-of-senate-says-cannot-comply-with-biden-request-to-release-records-on-purported-reade-complaint

Maria Bartiromo Questions Senator Graham: “Why Do You Continue To Do Nothing”?

by sundance{theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ Ms. Maria Bartiromo interviews Senator Lindsey Graham, yet again, about the surveillance coup effort and the recent documents released in the Flynn case…  Once again, Senator Graham claims he will use his position as Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman to initiate an investigation of those in the DOJ and FBI who have continually lied to the FISA court, the U.S. judicial system various judges, and the America people. Bartiromo calls Graham out on his lack of action; however, once again Senator Graham hides behind an “ongoing investigation.” This “I’m not going to interfere in an ongoing criminal matter” is the exact same excuse Graham used previously in: (1) the Mueller investigation; (2) the Horowitz investigation; (3) the IG review of the FBI FISA abuse; (4) the IG review of Andrew McCabe; (4) the IG review of scumbag-Comey’s memos; and now the Durham investigation into the origins of scum bag/liar-nObama’s political targeting and Flynn. I will keep repeating this until the Hope-Porn sellers catch up. Graham cannot, and will not, take any investigation action within the Senate because senators were involved in the FBI/DOJ and Intelligence Community operations. His own chamber, and the Senators on his own committee, were participants in the schemes. rino-John McCain, Richard Burr, Dianne Fein-stein, Mark Warner, Lindsey Graham, Chuck scumbag-Schumer, Mitch McConnell, Marco Rubio, and every person sitting on the SSCI know what happened and who was participating. The SSCI controls who is allowed to be CIA Director, NSA Director, FBI Director, Director of National Intelligence and Intel Community Inspector General. The nominees must pass through this committee. Senator Burr and Senator Warner are the Chairman and Vice-Chair respectively. Both blocked Ratcliffe…  https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/05/03/sunday-talks-maria-bartiromo-questions-senator-graham-why-do-you-continue-to-do-nothing/

Mockingbird Propagandist Chris Wallace Lies During Birx Interview

by sundance{theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ We noted this last week, a specific and nuanced lie about the phase-1 gateway.  Last week Jake Tapper and Chuck Todd were pushing it; this week it is Chris Wallace… When the original guidelines were rolled out by the White House COVID-19 task force, the administration was clear to say how the guidelines were created for the state governors to use in coordination with “state and local health officials.” A key part of the White House guidelines was the “gateway to reopening”; which included a recommendation of a 14-day period where the virus tracking showed diminished spread. However, the guidelines were emphasized to be driven by “local and state health departments.” It does not take every county in the entire state to pass the gateway before the governor, any governor, can start their phase-1 reopening. The White House guidelines to the state governors were intentionally structured around coordination with county health officials/county health departments. The reasoning was simple, a state with 40 counties may have passed the gateway hurdle in 38 of the 40 counties, but that does NOT mean the entire state has not passed the phase-one gateway…  https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/05/03/sunday-talks-mockingbird-propagandist-chris-wallace-lies-during-birx-interview/  VIDEO:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bee6LNxEGVQ&feature=emb_title.Jim Jordan and Trey Gowdy React to Latest Flynn Developmentsby sundance{theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) and former representative Trey Gowdy appear on Fox News to share their review of the latest Flynn documents with Maria Bartiromo… Both Jordan and Gowdy note the driver of the FBI effort appears to be Peter Strzok who worked around his immediate superior, Bill Priestap, to work with the more politically aligned FBI Director scumbag-James Comey and FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. Interesting juxtaposition in this interview. Roosterhead really wanted to avoid criticizing current FBI Director Chris Wray, and he was successful talkin’ circles. As long as the Rooster “knows” things he is satisfied and content. Why? Because it takes an actual connection with “deplorables” and “MAGA” to really fight with all they have for the greater cause….an emotional connection missing in the Rooster yet evident in Jim Jordan. From the Rooster’s perspective, the problem is not that people and families have continued to suffer due to ongoing DOJ prosecutorial terror-tactics; and/or the fact that fake media has fooled 50% or more of the public with their deep state fiction narrative; from the perch of the Rooster it’s all just a puzzle to outline and satisfy the appearance. https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/05/03/sunday-talks-jim-jordan-and-trey-gowdy-react-to-latest-flynn-developments/

International Outrage Over Denmark’s Fake Bible: Time to Discard It

by Petra Heldt{gatestoneinstitute.org } ~ The misrepresentation of Holy Scripture by the Danish Bible Society (DBS) has been met with a crescendo of international protest demanding the withdrawal of the falsified Bible… The March 2020 Danish Bible, for the secular Danish reader’s easy reading, has omitted or replaced the word “Israel” in all but two places of the more than 60 Greek occurrences in the New Testament and in 9% of the Hebrew Bible. Protests started on April 21 with the Danish author Jan Frost, who, in a video, first revealed the changes and took the Danish Society to task for them. On April 26, the Bible Society of Israel (BSI) issued a gracious but unambiguous statement asking to “take measures to correct” the translation: “The local body of believers as well as others in Israel and beyond were very surprised by and disappointed with the approach that the translators took regarding the term Israel and in its implementation in this translation…..We believe that the Danish Bible Society, as our fellow brothers and sisters in the Lord, will seriously consider our feedback, which echoes the voices of many, and will take measures to correct their translation as necessary.” BSI said it was “troubled” by what it found when researching the translation. Amongst the analyses it presented were: Matt. 2:21: “and he rose and took the child and his mother and went to the land of Israel.” speaking of Mary, Joseph, and Jesus’ return from their time in Egypt ➡ the phrase “land of Israel” is changed to simply “home”…  https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/15973/denmark-bible-translation-outrage  

Coronavirus has caused protests in Lebanon to reignite

By JONATHAN SPYER{jpost.com } ~ Throughout the country, Lebanese bristle against the issues of economy and living standards. One of the immediate effects of COVID-19 on the Middle East has been to clear the streets of the mass demonstrations… that had filled the public squares of a number of regional capitals in the preceding months. The virus has no political preferences, and its generalized assault has led to cooperation in some arenas between bitter rivals. In certain Middle East countries, however, the virus has provided a boon for authoritarian regimes. Specifically, Iran, Iraq and Lebanon, in the first months of 2020, all witnessed widespread protests against economic mismanagement and corruption. In Iran, brute force dispersed the demonstrations. In Iraq and Lebanon, the virus brought them to an abrupt end.  In  Lebanon, however, the demonstrations have now recommenced. And there are strong indications that policies enacted as a result of the virus are now exacerbating, rather than containing, public anger.  The virus arrived in a country already in deep crisis. Lebanon is, put plainly, a failed state and a failed economy. The national debt stood at 170% of GDP in 2019. Roughly 50% of government spending went toward servicing this debt in 2019. In March 2020, for the first time, Lebanon defaulted on its debts. In that month, the government suspended payment on a $1.2 billion Eurobond, due on March 9. As the Lebanese currency declined in value, banks sought to protect themselves and avoid bank runs by restricting withdrawals of dollars and other foreign currency. This increased the burden facing the public and fueled anger. The Lebanese pound has devalued by more than 50% over the last six months. The government has refused to formalize the currency controls imposed by the banks. As a result, wealthy and/or well-connected Lebanese have been able to access and move funds.Those without connections are left to bear the brunt of the discretionary controls imposed by the banks. Prime Minister Hassan Diab announced this week that in January and February, $5.7b. was transferred out of Lebanon’s banks…  https://www.jpost.com/middle-east/coronavirus-has-caused-protests-in-lebanon-to-reignite-626501?utm_source=Middle+East+Forum&utm_campaign=8e547e1b9e-MEF_Spyer_2020_05_04_02_23&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_086cfd423c-8e547e1b9e-33703665&goal=0_086cfd423c-8e547e1b9e-33703665&mc_cid=8e547e1b9e&mc_eid=f33b9e6c12    

.No Doubt, the Left Hates Grassroots Americans

Harold Hutchison  

If there’s one thing that has been learned over the last three and a half years, it’s that Patriots are targets. Some, notably commentators Kurt Schlichter and Dennis Prager, have been warning us for years. Schlichter, in particular, has pulled no punches about the fact: On the Left, hatred of grassroots Americans exists and dealing with it is going to be very necessary.

Anyone who doubts this just needs to trust their own eyes and ears. It has been blatantly obvious in everything from venomous declarations on social media to campaign slander to smears you’d see while watching TV — news or drama, if you can tell the difference. Maybe you’ve even heard it from those around you.It goes beyond statements. Look at the nearly 400 incidents of violence directed at Trump supporters. These things didn’t happen because someone just woke up and decided to beat up Trump supporters. It came from a long campaign of dehumanization involving a series of big lies. It’s gotten far worse since Trump pulled off a huge upset against scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton.But those who want to claim that somehow Trump made this all worse are simply not seeing what happened previously. Claims of racism have been aimed at Republicans at least since Ronald Reagan won in 1980. It wasn’t just Reagan: George H.W. Bush, Bob Dole, George W. Bush, rino-John McCain, and rino-Mitt Romney all faced such nonsense charges.It wasn’t just those running for president, though. Newt Gingrich, Tom DeLay, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and scores of other prominent Patriots have been smeared as racists and Nazis. Had rino-Mitt Romney won in 2012, or even if rino-John McCain won in 2008, we would still see the same Resistance emerge, only this time citing the defeat of Barack scumbag/liar-nObama as proof of racism. The congressional power of Gingrich and DeLay made them targets.For a long time, Patriots have joked that the way to tell if a leftist is losing an argument is hearing them declare their opponent a “racist!” The jokes have more than a grain of truth to them — as we have seen, the phony claims are often used to distract from failures. Even trying to fix messed up school lunches led to vicious personal attacks.That said, perhaps we should have been far more serious, especially as the Left broke out more and more comparisons to Hitler and the Nazis. The fact is, we can answer one question Dennis Prager posed in 2018: They seem to really mean it, and they are acting on the belief that Republicans are no different than Nazis.It’s graduated beyond name-calling to mobs of antifa outside the homes of government officials and journalists. People are attacked in restaurants or even while registering voters. Once upon a time, that was seen as cause to bring in the FBI. These days, though, there is some local coverage — maybe a report from Fox News — but it’s quickly swept under the rug by far too many journalists who seem to think the victims had it coming.It’s easy for some on the Right to just dismiss the warnings from Prager and Schlichter. But those who have should be asked a very simple question: Is there any evidence that can disprove their observations? Because from where we sit, we have to say they’re right.  ~The Patriot Post
