Tucker Carlson fires back at Mayor Berkowitz of Anchorage

Tucker Carlson strikes at the hypocrisy of leftist politicians in this clip, which starts out with him condemning the Democratic mayor of Anchorage, Ethan Berkowitz, who is again banning restaurants and bars from seating patrons indoors.

But what about the wine bar where Berkowitz has financial ties?

Tucker also speaks to the New Jersey gym owners who are being harassed by local officials for daring to open their business.

Sanders: If Biden can't handle questions, how can he handle being president?

This video begins with the disastrous Joe Biden interview with CBS News' Errol Barnett, where the slipping former vice president snaps back at the reporter after being asked if he has taken a mental acuity test. Biden's jumbled response includes asking Barnett, "Are you a junkie?"

Former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders wonders how Biden can serve has president if he can't answer relatively easy queries.

In Tweet from Cairo IL Pritzker wrongly calls Ohio one of continent's two longest rivers

Since he presides over Illinois as governor, which has one of the worst funded public pension plans of the 50 states and currently has $5 billion in past bill dues, it's easy to believe that numbers are not the long suit of the Governor JB Pritzker, a Chicago Democrat. Or Democrats overall in Illinois. Every budget for nearly 40 years has the fingerprints of Boss Michael Madigan, the longtime state House speaker and Illinois Democratic Party chairman.

Yesterday Pritzker traveled to Cairo, as the southern tip of Illinois. The impoverished town, whose population peaked 100 years ago, is a 19th relic. It sits at the confluence of the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers. Commerce by way of rivers peaked more than 100 years ago.

Anyway, in a Tweet, Pritzker from Cairo, while announcing a $40 million grant for the town, said this, "Sitting at the intersection of North America's two largest rivers, Cairo presents an enormous economic opportunity for investors, for the state of Illinois and for our working families."
But the Ohio doesn't even rank among the ten-longest rivers in North America.


Illinois Dem state rep wants history classes cancelled

Evergreen Academy, Chicago
In regards to schools we have entered an era of paradoxes. For decades I've heard that liberals care more about schools and of course the children attending them. But nationwide teachers are demanding that they run their classrooms remotely, presumably from their home, because of COVID-19. Does anyone seriously believe that kids, particularly inner city ones, will receive as good of an education plopped in front of a computer instead of in a classroom? Conservatives for the most part want schools open.

Who really cares about the kids?

Meanwhile in Illinois, whose public schools in its largest city will offer only remote learning for the fall quarter, a state representative wants to eliminate history classes for the time being.

From CBS Chicago:
Speaking at the Robert Crown Center in Evanston, state Rep. LaShawn Ford (D-Chicago) said current history teaching overlook the contributions of Blacks, women, the Jewish community, the LGBTQ community, the Latinx community, and other groups.

"It'll cost us as a society in the long run forever when we don’t understand our brothers and sisters that we live, work, and play with," Ford said.

Ford is calling on the Illinois State Board of Education and all local school districts to take immediate action by removing current history books and curriculum he says "unfairly" communicates history.
The leftward tilt in history instruction has been going on for decades and can arguably partially blamed for the violent protests plaguing our largest cities.

Gutfeld on Biden ducking the debates

Former Clinton spokesman Joe Lockhardt says that Joe Biden shouldn't debate Donald Trump this fall. That would make 2020 the first year major presidential candidates haven't faced off in at least one televised debate since 1972.

Greg Gutfeld responded yesterday.

Also, about an hour ago Jill Biden, Joe's wife, said on Fox News that Biden will debate the president.

Interesting that Biden has to depend on his wife to defend him.

IL governor Pritzker says fines are "worthy of considering" for not wearing masks

Illinois governor JB Pritzker, who, although it has nothing to do with this story, is under federal investigation, says it's "worthy of considering" of fining people for not wearing masks in public.

I just ran ten miles through Morton Grove, Skokie, and Glenview.

I didn't wear a mask and I won't even if the Chicago Democrat enforces the order.

Steve Hilton: End the shutdown madness

Most people have little to fear from COVID-19 while we do need to protect the vulnerable.

But some politicians are ramping up the lockdowns.
