Here’s Who is Getting Rich off the Lockdowns

As the S&P 500 and DJIA soared to new closing records on Monday even as New York State is reportedly on track to adopt a groundbreaking state wealth tax (the latest effort by Gov. Andrew Cuomo to distract from the twin scandals over sexual harassment of female aides and his office’s efforts to cover up the number of COVID deaths in the state’s nursing homes), the Institute for Policy Studies has published the results of its latest review of billionaire wealth.

Unsurprisingly, given the tremendous rally in asset prices over the past year, the 2,365 billionaires living on planet earth have seen their wealth increase by a collective $4 trillion – a 54% increase over the span of a year. Put another way, total wealth held by billionaires ballooned to $12.39 trillion, up from $8.04 trillion.

270 billionaires were added to the Institute’s billionaires list – ie the tres commas club – during the past year, while 91 names were removed for – for a net increase of 179 (we wish the 91 individuals removed from the list the best of luck on “re-billionizing”.

Of the nearly 2.5K billionaires tracked by the Institute, 13 billionaires saw their wealth soar by more than 500%. The Institute grouped these lucky individuals in its “500% Club”. It noted that all of them had investments and connections to companies that benefited the most (in terms of market capitalization) from the pandemic.

Members include Elon Musk, Dan Gilbert and a handful of Chinese entrepreneurs. Read the list here…

Marines Are Refusing COVID Vaccines En Masse

Just shy of 40 percent of Marine Corps service members have refused to take the coronavirus jab, new data provided to the media shows. The revelation comes as Democratic lawmakers push to make the vaccine mandatory for soldiers.

Some 75,500 Marines have agreed to be vaccinated as of Thursday, while around 48,000 have declined the inoculation, CNN reported, citing numbers provided by the branch. That puts the rejection rate at 38.9%, slightly higher than the 33% rate for the whole military given by defense officials.

Marine spokeswoman Colonel Kelly Frushour explained that Marines may be refusing the shot for a number of reasons, including allowing others in more vulnerable groups to take it first, allergies to the vaccine or obtaining it by other, non-military means…

While the military is currently barred from mandating any of the coronavirus vaccines rolled out in the US, as each has received only emergency FDA approval rather than full authorization, some in Congress have pressed the Joe Biden administration to change that. Read more…

Biden Deep State Declares War on MAGA

A swarm of Deep State officials and Congress critters has resurfaced in the wake of Biden’s successful election fraud, and decided to publicly announce that noticing said fraud will soon be de facto illegal. Wielding the boogeyman of “white supremacist terror,” these corrupt officials are demanding Congress trample on American civil liberties in the name of permanent one-party rule. Their vanity has enabled patriots to see the goods on offer, and they’re hefty.

The Deep State just sent a declaration of war to American Patriots. This time, at least, they had the courtesy to all sign it.

On Wednesday afternoon, a collection of more than one hundred former government officials published an open letter to Congress demanding an “independent and bipartisan national commission” to “investigate” the January 6 disturbance at the U.S. Capitol.

Oh, boy. They Can’t be serious, can they?

Oh, yes:

“But January 6th was also the result of complex national security threats. These include coordinated disinformation campaigns, nontransparent financing of extremist networks, potential foreign influences, and white supremacist violent extremism, which the Department of Homeland Security identified in an October 2020 report as among “the most persistent and lethal threat[s] in the Homeland.” As FBI Director Christopher Wray testified to you recently, “January 6th was not an isolated event. The problem of domestic terrorism has been metastasizing across the country for a long time now and it’s not going away anytime soon.” Understanding how these forces culminated in an attack on the infrastructure of our democracy is critical to preventing future attacks.”

What an absolute masterpiece of cynical mendacity. Read more…

ADL Demands Tucker’s Scalp…for What??

The Anti-Defamation League, a known hate group who routinely engages in smear attacks against right-wingers, is now calling for Fox News to fire Tucker Carlson for remarks he made in an episode of “Fox News Primetime” on April 8, 2021. During this episode, Carlson stated undeniable facts regarding the political implications of mass migration. Namely, continued migration to the US will secure Democrats a permanent electoral majority.

But this was too much for the smear merchants at the ADL, whose specialty is to defame any voice on the right that speaks out against the present-day (dis)order. In response to Tucker’s accurate assessment of migration trends and their impact on electoral behavior, Jonathan Greenblatt, the CEO of the ADL, tweeted “Tucker Must Go.” Carlson specifically maintained that Democrats are engineering a “replacement” of American voters with foreign-born migrants.

“I know that the left and all the little gatekeepers on Twitter become literally hysterical if you use the term ‘replacement,’ if you suggest that the Democratic Party is trying to replace the current electorate, the voters now casting ballots, with new people, more obedient voters from the Third World,” Carlson stated. “But they become hysterical because that’s what’s happening actually. Let’s just say it: That’s true.” Read more…

Ted Cruz Strikes Back at Boehner and the Swamp

Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz sat down with The Daily Caller and gave his reaction to former House Speaker John Boehner telling him to “go f**k yourself” in a leaked audio recording.

Cruz responded with a zinger about Boehner’s penchant for liquor and then raked the former politician over the coals.

“Obviously he had too much wine that day already,” Cruz began before saying Boehner was “a little unhinged.”

White House Correspondent Anders Hagstrom also asked Cruz about President Joe Biden’s policies on China and whether the president’s bark is bigger than his bite. Read more…

Biden Has Issued ‘Declaration of War’ on Gun Owners

The head of the premier gun rights organization in America has decried Joe Biden’s “Sinister Six” executive orders, deliberately designed to gut the Second Amendment. Biden’s handlers were sure to instruct him that “No Constitutional Amendment is set in stone,” while millions of Americans anxiously wait to see if another year of BLM/Antifa riots is ahead of us when the next hate hoax hits. Joe Biden’s agenda is rightfully being condemned by powerful voices, and the details are here:

Gun Owners of America Senior Vice President Erich Pratt said the group “is wholeheartedly opposed to the unconstitutional gun control threatened today by President Biden—restrictions such as the attacks on homemade and brace equipped firearms and so-called ‘Red Flag’ Gun Confiscation Orders.”

Joe Biden promised to do it and he has finally delivered. Today, the cognitively declining President of the United States signed a number of Executive Orders allegedly designed to “curb gun violence” but actually designed to destroy the Second Amendment and the Bill of Rights.

In the process, as Robert Wheeler writes at The Organic Prepper, Biden has turned many Americans into felons with a stroke of his pen. Details are still emerging as to just what the Executive Orders will mean for gun rights but we are aware of some of the ramifications.

Biden has signed 6 Executive Orders related to guns. Here they are:

Jan. 6th Patriots Are Being Terrorized in Prison

The prison guards tasked with taking care of pro-Trump patriots arrested after Jan. 6’s demonstration in and around the U.S. Capitol are instituting a racist terror regime on the patriots, their lawyers claim.

Trump supporters have been treated like murderers, rapists and thugs by a culture openly discriminatory against them for their pro-American beliefs. This is what real institutional discrimination looks like.

“Myself and others involved in the Jan. 6 incident are scared for their lives, not from each other but from correctional officers,” said Ronald Sandlin, one of the defendants being charged for allegedly participating in the Capitol riot. “I don’t understand how this is remotely acceptable.”

Sandlin claimed he was being subjected to “mental torture” and another defendant, Ryan Samsel “was severely beaten by correctional officers, [is now] blind in one eye, has a skull fracture and detached retina.” He told a horrific story of how 60-year-old Richard Barnett was targeted with racist attacks by black prison guards.

According to Sandlin, Barnett was targeted by black prison guards who said to him: “I hate all white people and your honky religion.” This savage response is likely due to a relentless fake news media campaign painting the pro-Trump patriots as “white supremacists” and “neo-Nazis” without evidence.

“There is a pattern of abuse and of targeting of the defendants who are being held pursuant to what happened on Jan. 6,” said attorney Joseph McBride of New York, who is defending Barnett in the court of law. “It is targeted. It is ruthless. It is nonstop.”

The attorney of Samsel said that their client is virtually unrecognizable due to the thuggery inflicted on them by. Read more…

California Sends Transsexual Murderers into Women’s Prisons

A man convicted of murdering his own children is among the prisoners in California who has been transferred to a designated women’s prison after claiming to be transgender, as reported by the Daily Caller.

Jason Hann, who claims to be a woman and prefers to be called Jessica Hann, was found guilty of murdering his children, Jason and Montana. His wife, Krissy Werntz, was also found to be guilty in the murders after helping hide their remains; they were both indicted by a grand jury in 2009, and Hann was convicted in 2013. He has been waiting on death row ever since.

Since claiming to be a woman, Hann was eventually moved in February of 2020 to Central California Women’s Facility, the same prison to which his wife was sent for a life sentence with the possibility of parole.

While still in prison, Hann received a gender reassignment surgery that was funded by taxpayer dollars. According to a spokeswoman for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR), Hann is one of “10 patients statewide [who] have been approved for gender-reaffirming surgery.” This was made possible by S.B. 132, a bill that was signed into law by Governor Gavin Newsom (D-Calif.) in January, which requires the state to ask each inmate for their preferred “gender identity” and gender pronouns upon entering prison.

Biden Assaults 2A; Promotes Waco Agent to Lead ATF

Joe Biden has announced his “shot heard round the world” against the Second Amendment. Stating “No Constitutional Amendment is set in stone,” Joe Biden has unleashed the dogs against gun-owners across the country, introducing new background checks, planned bans on AR pistols, gun kits, and numerous other unenforceable mandates designed to strangle the right to bear arms. And before you think this is all show: he’s appointed the case agent from the Waco siege in the 1990’s to lead the charge, putting into practice the agenda rehearsed for when the Clintons held the Oval Office. That is, the first time they held the Oval Office.

The White House announced Wednesday that President Biden will nominate longtime Giffords policy advisor and former ATF agent David Chipman to lead the nation’s gun regulatory agency.

Chipman, whose bio submitted to Congress in relation to his role in testifying in support of recent gun control measures, details that he has been with Giffords since 2016, having come to that anti-gun group after previously working for Bloomberg-founded Mayors Against Illegal Guns. Prior to that, he was with the ATF from 1988 to 2012, including running the agency’s Asset Forfeiture Program, leading the Detroit Field Division, and serving as “Case agent in [the] Branch Davidian trial” while working in the Waco, Texas, field office…

Since 2012, Chipman has been front and center stumping for the campaign to ban large selections of popular semi-auto firearms and keep in place antiquated controls on safety equipment such as suppressors. He testified against the Hearing Protection Act in 2017, arguing deregulating suppressors would lead to their increased use by criminals, disregarding the fact that an illegal suppressor can be readily made with household items today.

In 2019, he told the House Judiciary Committee that semi-auto firearms described as “assault weapons” are virtually “identical to those used by the military,” and should be extensively regulated even though over 18 million AR-style rifles are believed to be in circulation.

“[S]imply reinstating the 90s-era ban on assault weapons is not enough,” Chipman told lawmakers. “Instead, we should regulate a broader class of firearms, including assault weapons manufactured before the law’s enactment,” going on to explain that existing guns should fall under the NFA “while banning the future manufacture and sale of these firearms.” Read more…

Ashli Babbitt’s Death is Now Officially a Homicide

The Washington D.C. Medical Examiner’s office has ruled Trump supporter Ashli Babbitt’s death as a homicide, American Greatness learned on Wednesday. Babbitt, an Air Force veteran and small business owner, was shot dead inside the U.S. Capitol by a law enforcement officer on January 6.

In a press release to American Greatness, D.C. Chief Medical Examiner Francisco J. Diaz, M.D., revealed the cause and manner of death of four individuals who died during or after the Capitol riot.

Diaz determined that Babbitt, 35, died as a result of a gunshot wound to her left anterior shoulder, and called the manner of her death a “homicide.”

The medical examiner’s office defined “homicide” as a “death [that] results from the intentional harm of one person by another, including actions of grossly reckless behavior.” The unarmed Babbitt was in the process of climbing through a window near a barricaded door when a plainclothes officer fired the shot without warning.
