Its never been about Black Lives.....whatever thought was given to black lives was hijacked about 5 minutes after the protests started.

The chi coms will never stop -

Thursday’s indictment charges Zheng with grant fraud for not disclosing that he was engaged in a scheme to use approximately $4.1 million in grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to help the Chinese government. He has been ordered held without bond because a judge determined he is a flight risk.

Zheng is also charged with making false statements about his employment in China at the same time he was employed at Ohio State University, among other universities.

An affidavit filed after his arrest alleges that since 2013 Zheng had been participating in a Chinese Talent Plan, a program established by the Chinese government to recruit individuals with knowledge or access to foreign technology intellectual property.

“Yet again, we are faced with a professor at a U.S. University, who is a member of a Chinese Talent Plan, allegedly and deliberately failing to disclose his relationship with a Chinese university and receipt of funds from the Chinese Government in order to obtain millions of dollars in U.S. grant money designed to benefit the health and well-being of the people of the United States — not to be hijacked to supplement the research goals of the Chinese Communist Party,” said Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers.

Robert Cross @ 0940. My broader point has nothing to do with contagious diseases. The big point is how there are a lot of candy asses out there who are completely healthy yet petrified when they see someone without a mask who isn’t scared. You’re more likely to die eating that tofu and quinoa than from a Chinese virus. I promise that the world isn’t going to end. 😂

Good thing this was on Federal property. No slap on the wrist by a local judge on this one.

Really! -

Daniel Navarro allegedly swerved his father’s 2004 Dodge Dakota pickup into the victim’s path without braking on July 3, Fond du Lac Sheriff Ryan Waldschmidt said at a news conference Thursday.

Authorities identified the deceased as 55-year-old Phillip Thiessen, a Marine veteran and former Virginia police officer who had retired from a career with the Wisconsin Department of Justice, where he’d investigated crimes against children. After his retirement in 2018, he volunteered at the local food pantry.

While everyone is preoccupied its been a really bad week for those mutha mullahs. How long will this keep up? Until there is no nuke program?? Cyber attacks and F-35s, now who could do that? -

You have to admit that the Democratic Party really knows how to party. The lasers are a clever touch. It looks like the perps are out on $0 bail, at least the ones I bothered to track down.

Rise and shine. Daily Quotes and a meme.

Insight: “A sure sign of a genius is that all of the dunces are in a confederacy against him.” —Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959)

Upright: “It’s quite clear that there are larger forces at work here. Those committed to the ‘fundamental transformation’ of America into a Marxist-socialist state think that this is their moment; that they can hide behind a grassroots groundswell of support for African Americans’ calls for fairness, justice and equal access to the economic liberties the United States has to offer. Marxism has failed everywhere. We need to defeat this noxious ideology once and for all. We cannot allow ourselves to be distracted by the ‘little crimes’ and utterly overlook the larger movement afoot that threatens all Americans’ liberty and prosperity.” —Laura Hollis

Nailed it: “The USA ENDED slavery, ended race-based civil rights violations, elected a Black President TWICE, and made our highest paid athletes, musicians, celebrities and cultural ambassadors black Americans. If we’re a ‘racist’ nation… we suck at it.” —Steven Crowder

For the record: “I oppose that sign out there. The Black Lives Matter organization does not care about all black lives. They don’t care about police officers who are killed. They don’t care about black-on-black crime at all. They don’t care about school choice. It is a very extreme organization that really only cares if a police officer is involved in a killing. … A lot of black Americans such as myself will be voting for Donald Trump this year because the Democratic Party has been hijacked by black lives.” —civil-rights attorney Leo Terrell

Friendly fire: “The Council also proposes to reduce nearly $10 million [update: $15 million] from the Metropolitan Police Department’s (MPD) budget. This reduction would result in a level of sworn officers that has not been seen in DC since the 1990s, with seemingly no analysis on the impact this cut would have on the deployment of officers, officer response times to calls for service, and on community and neighborhood safety.” —Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser

Braying jenny: “People will do what they do.” —Nancy Pelosi basically condoning statue-destroying mobs

Braying jackass: “If you look at the gun laws that are on the books — and the gun laws that should be on the books and aren’t in this country — in some ways we have tacitly accepted this historic, tragic level of gun violence in America that continues to rise. We saw that just over the weekend in many American cities. It’s that same kind of death-cult mentality that asks us to accept one quarter, 25 percent, of the world’s COVID cases — one quarter, 25 percent, of the world’s COVID deaths — though we represent only 4 percent of the globe’s population.” —Beto O'Rourke

Non compos mentis: “Jesus Christ … admittedly was not perfect when he was here on this earth.” —CNN’s Don Lemon

Picking up where Obama left off: “We’re going to have a breathtaking opportunity to create good-paying union jobs, to deliver the promise of America to Americans who have been denied it for much too long, to rewrite our economy so that prosperity flows not just to CEOs but to workers who actually build the country.” —Joe Biden

Grand delusions: “The term ‘cancel culture’ comes from entitlement — as though the person complaining has the right to a large, captive audience, & one is a victim if people choose to tune them out. Odds are you’re not actually cancelled, you’re just being challenged, held accountable, or unliked.” —Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

And last… “The Left controls every major institution in America: mainstream media, the academy, administrative government, Hollywood, Big Tech, etc. So if ‘institutional racism’ really did exist, whose fault would that be?” —Michael Knowles

Our once decent newspaper has been turned into a mouthpiece for the Black Lives Matter punks. The editor moves here from Indiana and knows it is a 90% white cracker county and now is churning out what a racist county we are. I suggested via Twitter to his bosses that he be allowed to leave and Become the Editor for the BLM Manifesto division. I canceled all my contacts with the rag it has become. And KNCO tossed Rush so I am all in for KFBY 1530 and 93.1 FM. Looks like the left has taken over our little towns.
