Babbitt Family Sues Police

Viva Frei’s David Freiheit reports that the Ashli Babbitt family has filed a wrongful death civil suit against the U.S. Capitol police department and the officer who shot and killed her during the Jan. 6 siege on Capitol Hill. Babbitt was the only person shot and killed during the siege and the family is seeking damages upward of $10 million.

The officer shot Babbitt, who was unarmed, at point-blank range without any provocation. Freiheit says not only have charges not been brought against the officer, but he has not even been identified. Says Freiheit, “Compare that to other situations involving the police.” In the following video, Freiheit says the expectation is the officer will assert “qualified immunity,” which he explains in detail, and he also takes timeout to lash out the corrupt New York Times.

Project Veritas Gets Huge Win

In a major victory for the good guys, the New York Supreme Court ruled that Project Veritas can continue with its defamation lawsuit against The New York Times, after tossing a motion to dismiss by the newspaper. The suit was brought against The Times after it published five articles blasting a Project Veritas video relating to improprieties of ballot harvesting in Minneapolis as fake news.

The Times filed a motion to dismiss on two basis–one was the standard failure to state a claim and the other was a invoking SLAP (Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation) legislation. It is an unfortunate, but unknown reality of litigation that SLAP lawsuits are basically a method for rich clients to silence their critics. David Freiheit brings us more details on the ruling in this edition of Viva Frei.

 

No Science In Lockdowns

It’s become increasingly obvious that we don’t follow the science when it comes to lockdowns. In some areas, there are more cases of COVID-19 now than when lockdowns were enforced. What it sadly comes down to is political expediency, because we actually don’t know if lockdowns work. They’re different in every country and, truth is, we haven’t really defined it, haven’t studied it and haven’t measured it.

“Follow the science has become a euphemism for follow the leader, do what you’re told and don’t question it,” says David Freiheit of Viva Frei. So, Frei says, are we really using this euphemism to divide people and see who cooperates and who doesn’t? Freiheit was among a panel of experts on The Rubin Report with Dave Rubin, joining Dr. Drew Pinsky and Dr. Zubin Damania.

Interestingly, there’s actually a well-hidden history of lockdowns in the United States. In a story that was documented in The New York Times, a 14-year-old science student in Albuquerque, N.M., built a computer model to reduce the spread of influenza. She determined that you could close down local schools and reduce the spread. Her father, a computer programmer at Los Alamos National Laboratory, took it a step further and said he could actually use the idea to build a model for regional lockdowns in a pandemic. Surprisingly, the George W. Bush Administration adopted the model as policy. Dr. Pinsky says the model is absent from textbooks and science papers and it wasn’t until the Chinese Communist Party actually implemented the model that it was something no one thought they would ever do.

Here’s more discussion on lockdowns, COVID-19, mortality rates and legal issues on The Rubin Report. ”

Free Press Or Mao’s China?

Mark Levin says for four years the mainstream media have delivered an unrelenting attack of propaganda on the Presidency, exposing their hatred for Donald Trump while attempting to control the narrative. Now, to listen to the press equivocate Joe Biden’s inauguration to man setting foot on the moon is sobering. Is this our free press or Mao of China?

In the following Blaze TV segment, Levin reveals how The Washington Post, USA Today and The New York Times, to name just a few media outlets, slobbered and fawned over the inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Says Levin, the over-the-top coverage exposes their true Leftist colors and the hypocrisy hides the Democrat Party’s plan to shoot down their opposition. “The party that is the most vile, cancerous blot on our party politic, they’re going to bring us to unity,” Levin says. “They don’t mean unity, their mean conformity, repression. You will do as they say.” Here’s more with Levin.

China Censored Virus Narrative

Sourcing a New York Times expose, China Uncensored is reporting how the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) purposely issued censorship directives for the coronavirus pandemic. The Times, who published the article in a joint effort with ProPublica, obtained 32,000 directives and 1,800 memos from a group of hackers known as CCP Unmasked, revealing how the Chinese regime wrote a false narrative around the coronavirus, shaping public opinion both domestically and internationally.

The directives and memos reveal how the CCP especially targeted the internet, downplaying the danger of the coronavirus with paid online commentators, who worked for the state, and controlled the narrative using state-of-the-art technology. Chris Chappell and Shelley Zhang bring us more details.

China Whistleblower Tells All

A China Communist Party (CCP) whistleblower says that the recent allegations against the Biden Crime Family are absolutely true. Known simply as Mr. Lude of Lude Media and a YouTube blogger from Mainland China, he has worked tirelessly to expose the corruption in the CCP, delivering the information to American news outlets and directly to President Trump.

Mr. Lude steadfastly confirms that the information on the Hunter Biden laptop is factual and this revelation is just scratching the surface of the family’s corruption. Shockingly, Ukraine has confiscated a second Hunter Biden laptop and it doesn’t end there. Says investigative journalist Riss Flex, “Mr. Lude explains everything. There’s not just one hard drive by Hunter Biden, there are many. And as the Biden family continues to backstab their people–the people that they signed dirty deals with internationally–we will start to see these hard drives pop up. There’s literally a hard drive for every country and they have some terrible, gruesome abuse on them.”

But the plot begins with Ukraine, considered the technical, intelligence and military hub in Eastern Europe and it is squarely under the CCP’s thumb. Not only does China pull the strings of the Biden family, but through heavy investment in corporate America, it also controls the American media. Says Mr. Lude, Why do you think you don’t read anything about the Biden allegations in the Wall Street Journal  or New York Times?”

When you pull the proverbial cover back on this sordid tale, it’s a story of collusion, espionage and outright murder, all part of a China Communist Party plot to impose globalization and enslave the world. Here’s more from a Lude Media video obtained by Flex.

Where Do You Want To Live?

We’re supposed to be the United States of America, but in many ways, we’re now divided into two very different nations–Red State America and Blue State America. The red states favor conservative small-government policies, lower taxes, light regulations and tough-on-crime policing. The blue states, on the other hand, are more progressive, favoring a big-government approach, heavy regulations and higher taxes.

Progressive states contend that conservative policies are culturally backward and tend to favor the rich. Testing this theory, economist Stephen Moore compared the three largest blue states–California, New York and Illinois–to the three biggest red states–Florida, Texas and Tennessee. Moore posits that if progressive policies really work, then Americans should be rushing to these blue states. Fact is, just the opposite is happening.

Surprisingly, the migration is not a new phenomenon. Over the last decade, each of the three largest blue states lost an average of 1 million residents. You guessed it–most of them relocated in the three largest red states. The New York Times reported in August that so many people wanted to leave New York City that moving companies were turning away business.

“It makes sense,” Moore says. “Most people like freedom and small government means more freedom. And freedom means opportunity.”  Moore elaborates in this  episode of PragerU.

The Real Kamala Harris

Kamala Harris’ sojourn into presidential politics was surprisingly brief. The junior senator from California jumped into the race with much fanfare, but her huge shift to the radical left was solidly rejected by the Democrat Party after less than a year on the campaign trail.

Fast forward eight months and she’s back as the party’s vice-presidential nominee. And, as expected, the shameless mainstream media is already fawning over her. The New York Times fired the first salvo, absurdly labeling Harris as a “pragmatic, moderate!” There is nothing pragmatic or moderate about Harris, as evidenced by her support for illegal immigration, tax-funded healthcare for undocumented Democrats, partial-birth abortion and gun control, to name a few issues.

Rest assured that President Trump isn’t fretting over Joe Biden’s VP choice. In fact, his grin has widened. As the adage goes, don’t look a gift horse in the mouth. Here’s more on Harris from Fox News’ Laura Ingraham.

Two Down, Six To Go

Covington, Kentucky, high school student Nick Sandmann has won his defamation lawsuit against the Washington Post. This is the second lawsuit he has won, the other coming against CNN. There remain six other lawsuits left to settle, including ones against the New York Times, NBC Universal, CBS News, ABC News, Gannett and Rolling Stone.

Sandmann originally was seeking $250 million from the Washington Post. It’s unclear how much he received in his settlement agreement. Sandmann and other Covington kids were falsely accused by mainstream media outlets of mocking a Native American man, Nathan Phillips, who was later exposed as a fraud. More from Mr. Obvious.

 

How To Spot Fake News

Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Michael Malice (Author, The New Right) about the eighth chapter of Don’t Burn This Book, entitled “Learn How To Spot Fake News.” Special guest Michael Malice and Dave Rubin talk about the hypocrisy and double standards of the mainstream media. They discuss how the media which was quick to report on many disproved allegations against Brett Kavanaugh now seem to be ignoring the seemingly more credible allegations against the DNC presidential nominee Joe Biden. The same media that chanted #metoo and “believe all women” now seem silent when it is politically inconvenient.

Dave discusses this hypocrisy and how it leads to the further erosion of trust in our media institutions at a time when we desperately need trustworthy media to make sense of our world. Dave also discusses how many people who were lied about by the media like Nick Sandmann, James Damore, Bret Weinstein, Lindsay Shepherd and Ben Shapiro have all emerged stronger afterwards. Dave also shares his own personal experience concerning a smear piece in the New York Times that was written about him.
