Law enforcement bulletins and citizen alerts about the metastasis of violent demonstrations all amount to "misinformation," "bad information," "false information," "unfounded rumors" and "conspiratorial content," the Gray Lady scoffed. <p>Updated: Wed Aug 05, 2020</p> 3cc67911f6121913cd682a4be6fa8662 Mike Adams: Doer of the Word for 07/29/2020 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/07/20/mike-adams-doer-of-the-word Wed, 29 Jul 2020 00:00:00 -0700 <p>Michael Scott "Mike" Adams was a brilliant professor of criminology at the University of North Carolina-Wilmington. He was an unapologetic conservative who wrote prolifically and fought valiantly against the forces of political correctness and pure evil. He advocated with unbridled passion on behalf of the unborn. He trained his sharp tongue and prolific pen on radical feminists, campus liberals, racial demagogues, domestic terrorists and tyrants for more than two decades.</p> <p>Adams taught and led by example.</p> <p>In his books, columns and speeches across the country, he spoke truths &#8212; and he embraced The Truth. He died tragically and unexpectedly last weekend.

An "army of contact tracers" is about to be unleashed on America. Corporations, political lobbyists and government bureaucracies all win. Privacy, freedom and family autonomy all lose. Big time.</p> <p>You may have already heard of the aptly named House Bill 6666, sponsored by Illinois Dem. Bobby Rush. Known as the Testing, Reaching and Contacting Everyone (TRACE) Act, the legislation would allocate $100 billion in public funding to "eligible entities" to "conduct diagnostic testing for COVID-19, and related activities such as contact tracing, through mobile health units and, as necessary, at individuals' residences, and for other purposes." The cash could be used to hunt down infected individuals, quarantine them in their homes for undefined periods under unknown conditions and subsidize a hiring spree of untold thousands of trackers from nonprofits, schools and medical facilities.</p> <p>As for "other purposes," the proposal does not define them &#8212; leaving Swamp public health bureaucrats and their pet grantees' imaginations to run wild. What recourse or appeals process to citizens have when the "experts" get diagnoses and assessments wrong? Or when, say, homeschool families refuse to submit to intrusive phone call monitoring or forced quarantine? What are the opt-in or opt-out mechanisms? H.R. 6666 is silent on all these fundamental issues of autonomy and sovereignty.

The more information we have to prevent the needless slaughter of U.S. military members on U.S. soil the better.</p> <p>But Attorney General William Barr's announcement of the Pensacola jihadist's unlocked phones yesterday raises more questions than it answers. Why haven't the American people been informed yet of basic details regarding how Alshamrani got into our country? Why have we resumed foreign flight training while lockdowns have put nearly 37 million citizens out of work &#8212; and while national security concerns about the A-2 visa for foreign military trainees remain unresolved?

My inbox was flooded with twitching and moaning from Americans for Prosperity, the Koch Foundation-funded outfit, which called a freeze the "wrong approach" and the Southern Poverty Law Center, which ranted (as usual) about "white nationalists" and "racism." The infuriated Council on American-Islamic Relations condemned the "irrational and insidious" plan (that no one had yet seen) and called for "people of all decency" to "denounce this xenophobic agenda."

But blocking input from those who knew the phenomenal matriarch, lawyer and author of more than 20 books conveniently allowed the Tinseltown fable-tellers to fabricate calumnious scenes out of thin air &#8212; including a fantastical depiction of Schlafly's devoted husband, Fred, forcing the female conservative icon to have sex against her will.<p>Updated: Wed Apr 15, 2020</p> ce70d08d1bf03ca53fe9d59ed37310f3 The Grand Farce of American Social Distancing for 04/08/2020 https://www.creators.com/read/michelle-malkin/04/20/the-grand-farce-of-american-social-distancing Wed, 08 Apr 2020 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>This week in Colorado, our statewide stay-at-home order was extended until April 26.

For decades, they've demonized conservatives and Christians as agents of "hate" and treated our very existence as incitements to violence. The ADL's manufactured outrage machine has broadened its target list to anyone remotely critical of Israel for any reason, President Donald Trump, Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, "America First" college students, innocuous hand gestures, cartoon frogs and anyone who dares to think or write that "It's OK to be white."</p> <p>Now, in the wake of the "Chinese flu" pandemic, ADL is lining up with all the other federal bailout vultures clamoring for free money. This week, the group issued a statement calling on Congress to include "relief for charities" in any COVID-19 legislation. "In times of crisis," ADL self-righteously urged, "nonprofits are on the front lines, ready to respond and serve communities across the nation &#8212; but funds are needed to continue doing so." The "relief package" pushed by ADL and several hundred other groups demands $60 billion in "emergency stimulus funding to support our work... during this time of crisis and need."</p> <p>What a crock. The primary "front lines" ADL occupies are on the battlefields against American sovereignty and free speech. By my count, the open borders zealots of ADL have filed 17 amicus briefs in our courts supporting obstruction of Trump's immigration enforcement and national security measures. The group is particularly proud of its brief in Trump v. Hawaii, in which it "led a coalition of six Jewish organizations using our unique moral voice to passionately argue against the so-called Muslim ban, citing three historical examples when our nation later recognized that we were wrong to turn our back, including denying refuge to Jews fleeing the Nazis." The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the travel restrictions and affirmed the broad plenary powers of the executive branch over immigration.<p>Updated: Wed Mar 25, 2020</p>
