I always wondered why these idjits were ever held in such high regard.

SPLC Uses Anniversary of Islamic Terror Attack to Demonize Conservative Christians

Four years ago yesterday, a radical Islamic terrorist opened fire in Orlando’s Pulse Nightclub, killing 49 people and wounding 53 others. He pledged allegiance to the Islamic State (ISIS) during the attack, and ISIS later claimed responsibility. Yet, because Pulse is a gay bar, leftists have memory-holed the terrorist’s intentions and blamed “anti-LGBT hate” for the heinous attack. On Friday, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) used the anniversary of the shooting to demonize conservative Christians and the Trump administration.

Not unexpected by any means

Seattle Autonomous Zone Has First Case Police Brutality, Warlord

Antifa goons managed to take control of about six blocks of Seattle real estate. They’ve declared it the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, or CHAZ, as we wrote about yesterday.

As part of that process, the police pulled out of the area, leaving the area police station and leaving the neighborhood to the anarchists.

Of course, there’s been all kinds of hilarious issues within the CHAZ, such as the homeless they invited in having stolen all their food and ate it, leaving nothing for the CHAZ denizens to eat.

But, without any cops, there’s no police brutality, right?

You’d think, but you’d be wrong.

Anti-Antifa Movement –
Armed Patriots Guard Entrances To Seattle-Area Neighborhood

What started as peaceful protests two weeks ago in Seattle, Washington quickly turned into a compilation of looting and rioting in the Emerald City and surrounding suburbs. Gov. Jay Inslee activated the National Guard but the Pentagon has told National Guardsmen deployed to the nation’s capital not to use firearms or ammunition, and has issued orders to send home active-duty troops that the Trump administration amassed outside the city in recent days, a sign of de-escalation in the federal response to protests in the city.

Some residents in the Seattle suburb of Bellevue weren’t waiting for authorities to protect them. Video shows several armed citizens standing guard over the entrance to their neighborhood.

In addition to several vehicles they used to block the roadway, at least two of the residents held firearms to further deter anyone intent on causing problems in the neighborhood, the video showed.

Youtube is apparently censoring anything ‘anti antifa’ so the original video is available at the linked article.

Well, Youtoobie reinstated the vid after I buttonholed the idjits to specify the precise problem they had…So:

Virginia gun range loses legal bid on virus restrictions

LEESBURG, Va. — A judge has rejected a request from a Loudoun County gun range that sought to loosen the restrictions imposed under Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s executive orders to mitigate spread of the coronavirus.

The injunction request filed by owners of the Silver Eagle shooting range was one of many filed across Virginia challenging business closures.

Nearly all of them have been rejected, though a judge in Lynchburg ruled that closure of a range there violated the constitutional right to bear arms.

The Loudoun County judge, though, reached a different conclusion than the judge in Lynchburg.

The judge ruled Wednesday that Second Amendment protections extend to individuals, not gun ranges like Silver Eagle.

 US city bans no-knock warrants after woman’s death

The city of Louisville in US state of Kentucky banned “no-knock” warrants Friday after a black woman was killed in her home earlier this year by police, sparking widespread outrage.

Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old health care worker, was killed by police in March, shot eight times in her home as police officers and her boyfriend exchanged gunfire while police attempted to carry out a drug sting. The officers requested and were granted a no-knock warrant by a local judge.

The Louisville City Council voted 26-0 to pass what is known as Breonna’s Law on Thursday. It prohibits any local law enforcement from seeking or participating in the execution of a no-knock warrant, which allow officers to enter a premise without prior notification, according to the local WLKY television network.

It further mandates officers wear body cameras while executing a search warrant after the three who fatally shot Taylor did not have them.

Mayor Greg Fischer signed the measure into law on Friday, describing the law as a “victory.”

UC Berkeley History Professor’s Open Letter Against BLM, Police Brutality and Cultural Orthodoxy

Note from Editor: I was sent this and felt the need to share it to a wider audience on Twitter. I shared a link to the original post in the tweet. Then, the post was removed, and I made the decision that this is an important perspective not given an equal share in the marketplace of ideas. It is for this reason that UncoverDC now publishes it, not only because it is newsworthy, but because it is a critical piece of history. Wilfred Reily, mentioned in the letter alongside Thomas Sowell, retweeted my original tweet confirming that he personally received the email, thus verifying its credibility.

Not really. All it does is provide for forming a commission, which is nothing much more than a study group. If that commission recommends nothing?

Senate Armed Services Committee Approves NDAA Amendment To Rename Military Bases

The Senate Armed Services Committee voted Wednesday night to approve an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that would require the Department of Defense to rename military bases, buildings, locations and other assets named after Confederate leaders. The amendment was offered by Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, and was passed by voice vote.

summary of the NDAA released on Thursday states that the amendment in question will add provisions for:

“Establishing a commission to study and provide recommendations concerning the removal, names, symbols, displays, monuments, and paraphernalia that honor or commemorate the Confederate States of America, addressing an implementation plan, cost, and criteria for renaming, among other procedures. The implementation plan is to be implemented three years after enactment.”

More businesses in Seattle’s “CHAZ” fearing property damage hire private security guards in wake of protests.

Private security contractor Denise Bamba remembers the point last week when she couldn’t get off the telephone.

It was the Monday after weekend protests occurred in downtown Seattle over the Minneapolis police killing of George Floyd. Fortress Security Services, co-owned by Bamba and her husband, Deschamps, was besieged by local businesses seeking armed guards to protect their property.

“My phone shows I logged more than 200 calls that day,’’ said Denise Bamba, adding the couple turned down numerous requests because the company didn’t have enough guards.

Other security companies also reported an uptick in protection requests from businesses of all sizes and residential complexes downtown, in Capitol Hill, Pioneer Square and even Redmond, West Seattle and Tukwila. Fueling the surge, they say, are fears police consumed with controlling protests won’t prioritize property protection.

The push toward private security began during the coronavirus pandemic closures, with businesses fearing break-ins on abandoned streets. It continued even as businesses reopened, with staff sometimes encountering unusually hostile customers seemingly stressed out by the pandemic. Then, things really took off once the protests began.

Deschamps Bamba said commercial construction sites are the company’s fastest-growing clients as vandals and thieves “take advantage of the current climate.” Higher-end residential clients have also sought beefed-up security, including two apartment complexes near the Capitol Hill protests………..

Two COVID Positive Hairstylists Served 140 People. Not One Customer Was Infected

Two Missouri hairstylists saw dozens of customers while symptomatic with COVID-19 but did not pass the disease on to either customers or coworkers.

The Springfield-Greene County Health Department announced earlier this week that the incubation period for 147 people potentially exposed to the coronavirus had passed.

“This is exciting news about the value of masking to prevent COVID-19,” Springfield-Greene County Director of Health Clay Goddard said in a statement. “We are studying more closely the details of these exposures, including what types of face coverings were worn and what other precautions were taken to lead to this encouraging result. We never want an exposure like this to happen, but this situation will greatly expand our understanding of how this novel coronavirus spreads.”

The health department began monitoring the group after two stylists at a local Great Clips were found to have worked while symptomatic with COVID-19. The officials put 140 customers and seven other employees on notice for potential exposure.

The Great Clips where the two infected employees worked had implemented social distancing policies to mitigate any spread of the disease. They staggered appointments and set apart salon chairs.

The infected stylists worked at the Great Clips for about eight days ending on May 20. One saw 56 clients while the other worked with 84 clients and seven coworkers, according to CNN. The salon was able to track down all the customers by keeping records of the clients each stylist worked with.

Great Clips released a statement celebrating the news to KYTV.

“Today, we learned from the Springfield-Greene County Health Department that all customers who were tested for COVID-19 after visiting a franchised Great Clips salon in Springfield have confirmed negative test results,” the statement said. “Together with our 1,100 independent franchisees, we care deeply about the well-being of customers, salon staff, and the communities we serve, and we are grateful for the health of these individuals. We thank the health department for their important work during this time.”

One suspect was declared dead at the scene and the other was taken to a hospital for treatment.

NSSF: West Palm Beach Mayor’s Gun Ban Exposes Flaw in Florida Law

The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) says that West Palm Beach Mayor Keith James’ ban on gun and ammo sales prior to the George Floyd protests exposes a flaw in Florida law.

On June 3, 2020, Breitbart News reported that James banned the sales of guns and ammo as part of a State of Local Emergency, issued in anticipation of riots.

James’ emergency declaration put in a place a 72-hour ban on “the sale of, or offer to sell, with or without consideration, any ammunition or gun or other firearm of any size of [sic] description.”

His declaration also prohibited “the intentional display by or in any store or shop of any ammunition or gun or other firearm of any size or description.”

James’ declaration also banned law-abiding citizens from carrying guns in public places for self-defense.

NSSF Public Affairs Director Mark Oliva said, “According to Florida law, if a local mayor declares a state of emergency, they are required to suspend the sale of firearms and ammunition.” The law is Statute Title XLVI, Chapter 870.

Oliva said, “The actions of the West Palm Beach mayor to declare an emergency exposed a flaw in Florida’s statute that violates the Second Amendment and the constitutionally-protected commerce-in-arms. The ability of law-abiding citizens to exercise their Second Amendment rights and legally defend their lives begins with their ability to approach the gun counter and purchase a firearm.”

He added:

The mayor of West Palm Beach signed an emergency declaration that triggered this denial of his citizens to legally obtain firearms and ammunition, while at the same time he acknowledged through his own declaration there was an emergency that put his citizens’ lives and property at risk. This was signed knowing the police in his city would not be able to respond to emergency calls to protect lives. This is unconscionable that a law would tell citizens that rioting, looting and mayhem is running rampant in the streets of their city and at the same time deny those vulnerable citizens the ability to lawfully obtain the resources they need to defend themselves and their loved ones. The National Shooting Sports Foundation will be working with Florida legislators to propose a change in this law when Florida General Assembly returns to Tallahassee.

Tucker Carlson Rips Left-Wing ‘Rage Mobs’ After BLM Cancel Culturalists Add Him to the Growing List

Tucker Carlson, who is a frequent target of cancel culturalists like the left-wing provocateurs at Media Matters, found himself this week on the receiving end of yet another campaign to end his Fox News show by way of “rage mob” leftists who accused him of “racism” for pointing out some inconvenient truths Monday night about how Blacks Lives Matter and related organized social justice warrior mobs are motivated by the desire for absolute “power” and the intent to silence opposing voices in order to advance their radical agendas.

Here’s what Carlson said Tuesday in response:

Minutes after we said that, the mob came for us — irony of ironies. They’ve spent the last 24 hours trying to force this show off the air for good. They won’t succeed, thankfully. We work for one of the last brave companies in America. They’re not intimidated. We’re grateful for that. But the whole thing did get us thinking that we should be more specific about who this mob is, and what they’re doing. Who are the people trying to take over the country, cancel our rights, eliminate our centuries-long tradition of tolerance, yes tolerance, and free expression? And the truth is, we often don’t know their names. They’re mostly faceless political agitators who exist primarily online. They are trolls who thrive on cruelty. And yet suddenly they have immense power. Weak leaders now reflexively bow to their demands, no matter what those demands are.


“Who we are.” It’s a good question, actually. Who exactly are we? At this point, we’re becoming North Korea. We now believe in bloodguilt. We punish people for the sins of their relatives. We don’t allow individuals to have private thoughts. We hurt anyone who disagrees with orthodoxy. We demand that the innocent plead guilty to things we know they didn’t do, and then read their confessions in public, to prove they’ve been re-educated. And then we brag about doing it.

Obviously, something terrifying has descended on America. It’s easy to see what’s happened: terrible ideas suddenly have free reign. Why? Because no one pushed back. They’re met with supine weakness. You’ve seen it happen a thousand times — Some professional activist says something crazy and destructive because that’s what professional activists do, always. “Defund the police!” What’s changed, what’s brand new, is that no one in charge has the stones to disagree. So the rhetoric gets even crazier and more destructive — “Kill the police!” OK, what next?

Carlson has been in rare form lately. Make sure to watch the full segment below:

Harvard Chairman Indicted for Lying About $1.5m Chinese Research Scheme

The chairman of Harvard University’s chemistry department was indicted on charges he lied to US government officials about his work for a Chinese technology school while receiving federal research funds, according to the Justice Department.

Charles Lieber was indicted by a federal grand jury on two counts of making false statements about his association with Wuhan University of Technology, where he became a “Strategic Scientist” in 2011, while his Lieber Research Group received $15 million in grants from the National Institutes of Health and the Defense Department, the Justice Department press release issued Tuesday says.
