THOSE WACKY CHICOMMS: WHAT HAVE THEY BEEN UP TO?

We know the People’s Republic of China has been covering up its response to the release of the COVID-19 virus, but here’s a firsthand account that will chill you. It really is like something out of a spy thriller.

Chinese “citizen journalist” Li Zehua disappeared on February 26, after posting video on YouTube, Twitter and Weibo from his own car of being ambushed and followed by a white SUV and finally making it home but, hours later, having his apartment entered by three agents.

Prior to this happening, Li was working for the State-sanctioned broadcaster CCTV and had traveled to Wuhan to report on the coronavirus after another journalist “disappeared.” Li dared to report on the efforts of one neighborhood committee to hush up the reporting of new infections. Apparently the State decided he was taking his duties a bit too seriously, as his reports also involved interviewing the sick and visiting a crematorium where an employee said they were being paid extra to transport bodies.

At the time of his reports, he was outspoken about what he had seen, saying, “I don’t want to remain silent, or shut my eyes and ears. It’s not that I can’t have a nice life, with a wife and kids. I can. I’m doing this because I hope more young people can, like me, stand up.”

GEORGIA DEMOCRAT IS STEPPING DOWN

Georgia State Rep. Vernon Jones, who made headlines for being an African-American Democrat who endorsed Trump’s reelection, is stepping down from his office less than a week later. He said he’s sick and tired of him and his family being attacked and harassed by the Democrat Party for putting his country ahead of his political party.

Jones said, “I take pride in being an independent thinker. My First Amendment right to freedom of speech is under siege. I intend to help the Democrat Party get rid of its bigotry against Black people that are independent and conservative. Turn the lights off, I have left the plantation. Someone else can occupy that suite.”

He said that with Trump’s record of creating jobs and record-low unemployment for African-Americans, he is best prepared to lead a post-virus recovery. He added, “I endorsed the White guy (Trump) that let Blacks out of jail, and they endorsed the White guy (Biden) that put Blacks in jail.”

The Democrats are playing a dangerous game by refusing to rein in their Trump Derangement Syndrome mobs with their vicious intolerance of any wavering from the leftist line. They’ve already sparked a “Walk Away” movement. If they can’t count on 90+ percent support from black voters, they’re in trouble electorally. And when their intolerance has grown so glaring that their own Black officeholders are not only walking away, they’re comparing the trip to fleeing a plantation, that’s really bad optics. It might even inspire a lot of miseducated students to finally pick up a real American history book and learn who ran the original plantations and which party was created to end that system.

MICHAEL MOORE IS CLUELESS

Michael Moore admits he is clueless about the radical environmentalist ideas he’s promoted for years. For instance, he had no idea where the electricity to charge electric cars comes from (hint: not unicorn poo), or that solar panels wear out, and they require a lot of fossil fuels and other polluting materials to make.

This shouldn’t stop him from promoting green radicalism, however, since knowing nothing about guns didn’t stop him from making a movie about guns, and knowing nothing about health care didn’t stop him from making a movie about that. As Bryan Preston notes at the link above, Moore is belatedly figuring out that there’s no such thing as a free lunch, which I imagine is more terrifying to him than global warming.

UPDATED: AINSWORTH: MICHELLE O UPDATE --- THIS APPEARS TO BE HAPPENING

Editor's note: The original post did not include the closing paragraphs.  They have been updated.

By Laura Ainsworth 

Every now and then, when new developments pointed to Michelle Obama being on the ticket for 2020, I’ve written to sound the alarm once more. The last time was March 6, which seems like a thousand years ago. At that time, I said that she would be installed, “either as a last-minute substitute for him [Biden] or as #2 on the ticket, as he quietly fades away.” Since then, we’ve entered a whole new era, with a pandemic that has devoured all our attention, caused us to do the unthinkable and shut down the entire economy, and also completely changed the process of running for President (and all elective offices) this time around.

At least a couple of years ago, I was sure Michelle Obama would somehow end up on the Democrat ticket --- for President. It was in February of 2019 that I felt it was necessary to start putting out the warning that she would be the nominee, that this was a foregone conclusion no matter what kind of make-believe show the Democrats put on. I won’t go back over the myriad reasons this seemed inevitable, but I will tell you why it seems like even more of a given today.

First with the obvious: In the past few months, even though the 77-year-old Biden stumbled his way to the top spot on the ticket, his mental decline has been even more marked. True, the coronavirus has made it easier for the Democrat Party to keep this confused, rambling, apparently senile man under wraps, as there will be no personal appearances, no town halls, apparently not even a convention. I doubt most Democrats seriously think that if he wins, decisions of any consequence will actually be made by him. But they’ll vote for him anyway, because 1) they hate Trump with the fire of a thousand suns, and 2) he’ll be bringing back the Democrat power structure, which is this time even farther to the left.

HUCK'S HERO, PASTRY DIVISION

You’ve heard of fancy restaurants that ask $100 for a donut sprinkled with gold dust?  Tremont Goodie Shop, a donut shop in Upper Arlington, Ohio, went them 10 times better.  The little shop is struggling to survive the shutdown and keep its employees paid.  A loyal customer of forty years told them he was watching his weight, so he ordered a single custard donut and paid the store owner $1,000 for it.

No, he wasn’t that hungry, he was just that generous. Although I’m sure many of us have been on diets that made a thousand bucks for a donut sound like a bargain.  More on the story at the link.

Bible Verse of the Day (KJV)

O Lord, thou art my God;

I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name;

for thou hast done wonderful things;

thy counsels of old

are faithfulness and truth.

Isaiah 25:1 (KJV)

    A verse for the President: Psalms 62:3-5 NIV
    How long will you assault a man? Would all of you throw him down -- This leaning wall, this tottering fence? They fully intend to topple him from his lofty place; they take delight in lies, with their mouths they bless, but in their hearts they curse. Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him.

    If the Democrat Party decides that Mr. Biden in way to wacky. Michelle Obama seems the only one left. Having said that. That would, if she should win the election would make President Obama as the First Man. Now, remember, he was the one who installed the deep state ( or helped it on it's way). He knows the White house and all his " Friends" will be welcome, once again into the White House. So who would be the BOSS, Michelle or Barrack Hussein?
