The Progressives Are Doing It Right Before Our Eyes

One of the tactics that Progressives enjoy using most is the tactic of redefinition. We see it every day and in every avenue of life. It is facilitated by the idea of political correctness which in and of itself is an attempt to redefine and actually rewrite the Bill of Rights to the US Constitution. The odd thing is this. Political correctness is not legislated. It is imposed. That’s what makes it the most dangerous weapon in the Progressives’ arsenal.Please subscribe to our podcast at iHeart Radio, Pandora, Spotify, TuneIn, Apple Podcasts, Google Play, and on podcast platforms like Castbox, Podcast Addict, Stitcher, SoundCloud, Spreaker, and anywhere podcasts are heard.TRANSCRIPTOne of the tactics that Progressives enjoy using most is the tactic of redefinition.

Political correctness is not legislated. It is imposed. That’s what makes it the most dangerous weapon in the Progressives’ arsenal.Some of the more obvious examples of Progressive redefinition come in the form of the ever-changing labels they bestow upon groups and movements. Since the 1950s, Blacks in the United States, as a group, have seen language referring to their demographic change almost constantly. Negroes, African-American, Black-American, black with a small “B”, and now Black with a capital “B”, Progressives have always been on the hunt for what resonates with the Black demographic.Recently, the Associated Press – which has an unbalanced influence of our media outlets when it comes to “style,” has issued a rash of edicts mandating the redefinition of journalistic lingo. Aside from their edict about the capital “B” in the use of “Black” in news items, the AP has also decided that if the use of the words “racism” or “racist” is applicable, “racially charged” should not be used.The USA Today gave a platform to certain Progressive academics, who suggest that the words “violence,” “looting,” and “rioting” should not be used when referring to what happened in the streets of Minneapolis and other urban centers in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death. The academics claim these words don’t accurately reflect the protesters’ “rage” and hopelessness.These language usage changes may seem small and inconsequential but when the many changes are applied over time they work to “nudge” our society’s “acceptable language” to facilitate a singular ideological view. In doing so, organizations like the AP and other media outlets are incrementally engineering our culture to a preferred viewpoint. Then there are the passive inclusions to existing definitions that completely change the meaning of a phrase or, in this case, a perceived movement. In the article, GOP Candidate Is Latest Linked to QAnon Conspiracy Theory, reporters Jim Anderson, Nicholas Riccardi, and Alan Fram, cite a professor at the University of Miami in their attempt to marry the “Q movement” to the Deep State:“The QAnon theory has ricocheted around the...

The Media & First Amendment Protection: Abuse of Power

The Framers established protection for the media so that it could speak truth to power; so the press was free to provide opposing views to a free people could so they could decide for themselves – at the ballot box – what direction they wanted to take our country.But the Framers never envisioned a media so corrupt, so ideologically agenda-driven, or so disingenuously manipulative as today’s media.

The Media & First Amendment Protection: Abuse of Power

An Act of War: ANTIFA Marches on America

As our urban centers around the United States literally burn - stores being looted and citizens sleeping with loaded weapons at the ready, it has become abundantly clear that this destruction and violence has nothing at all to do with the death of a Black man in Minneapolis. In stead, it has everything to do with an act of war and the attempted overthrow of the US government by ANTIFA, a far-Left, Progressive anarchist group.Please subscribe to our podcast at iHeart Radio, Pandora, Spotify, TuneIn, Apple Podcasts, Google Play, and on podcast platforms like Castbox, Podcast Addict, Stitcher, SoundCloud, Spreaker, and anywhere podcasts are heard.TRANSCRIPTAs of this recording, the city of Minneapolis and its surrounding counties – along with urban areas around the country – are on fire, literally. Monuments in Washington, DC – including the World War II Memorial and the Lincoln Memorial – have been defaced. A 204-year-old church complex, St. John’s, across from the White House, was briefly set afire. And posters are popping up all over urban centers organizing ANTIFA terrorists to “move the battle to the suburbs”. A federal agent in Oakland was killed and law enforcement – as well as fire and EMS personnel – are under violent attack from coast to coast.If anyone believes that this violence and destruction is related to the death of George Floyd they are delusional. This is a full-on attempt at crippling the country by Progressive domestic terrorists. This is an act of war at the hands of ANTIFA.By all rational accounts, the system – which in some cases used to ignore the use of excessive force by law enforcement – is working this time. The four cops who are accused of used excessive force in Minneapolis were terminated, Officer Derek Chauvin has been charged with 3rd degree murder and manslaughter, and the DoJ is looking into the application of Civil Rights violation charges. The system is working. Bad people who did bad things are being punished, investigated, charged and will get tried by a jury.Yet, in the face of the system working, legitimate protesters took to the streets of Minneapolis. They rightfully marched to protest a questionable death of a man in police custody. These protesters had the hearts and minds of every American. If these protests would have stayed non-violent that would still be the case today. Sadly, violent ideological opportunists; anarchists and hardcore socialists took advantage of the situation.Now, rioting, looting, and acts of arson on an scale that makes Devils Night in Detroit look like a quaint bonfire have exploded in many urban areas and are threatening to expand into suburban areas across the country. In some larger urban areas this criminal activity has ventured into the suburban areas. Shopping and business centers are closing out of an abundance of caution and county and suburban police forces are gearing up in preparation for the worst. All officers are on heightened alert, public works trucks are set-up as barriers at intersections, people are sleeping with loaded weapons at the ready.This unrest has spread across our nation in short order; from New York, to Chicago, Nashville to Atlanta, Louisville, Des Moines, Washington, DC, Los Angeles, and other major cities in the United States, and has done so in a curious sense of coordination and precision.These “protests” stink of being manufactured and pre-prepared, and evidence is pointing to the involvement of Progressive-Left ANTIFA domestic terror group from coast to coast.Adam Leggat, a former British Army counterterrorism officer and security consultant specializing in crowd management for the Densus Group, describes the ANTIFA agitators thusly:“The real hard-core guys, this is their job: They’re involved in this struggle...They need protests on the street to give them cover to move in.”USA...

An Act of War: ANTIFA Marches on America

Minneapolis: The Consequences of Disingenuous Identity Politics

As Minneapolis burns, the abstract failure of identity politics can be seen in the plumes of smoke that hovers above the city. The system is working; holding those responsible for the death of a minor offender responsible for their actions. But arrogant and self-righteous protesters are opportunistically wreaking havoc on the city, destroying their own neighborhoods, and destroying their neighbors' dreams.To what end?Please subscribe to our podcast at iHeart Radio, Pandora, Spotify, TuneIn, Apple Podcasts, Google Play, and on podcast platforms like Castbox, Podcast Addict, Stitcher, SoundCloud, Spreaker, and anywhere podcasts are heard.TRANSCRIPTI was going to talk about how we at The Underground are going to start featuring insightful articles that will help expand the thinking about issues that are relevant in today’s ideological and political spheres, but the news coming out of Minneapolis – and from other urban centers – has circumvented those plans.As of this recording, the city of Minneapolis and its surrounding counties are on fire, literally. The use of excessive force by at least one of four Minneapolis police officers caused the death of another human being, George Floyd. As it stands, the four police officers associated with this crime have been terminated by the Minneapolis Police Department and the chief offender, Officer Derek Chauvin, who had a history of reprimands for questionable use of force, has been charged with 3rd degree murder and manslaughter.Ironic here is that a Progressive city administration refused to take issue with Chauvin when the use of force issue was originally brought up. Even more ironic is that when Progressive darling Sen. Amy Klobuchar served as Hennepin County attorney, she took no action against Chauvin.But I digress.By all rational accounts, the system – which used to ignore the use of excessive force by law enforcement – is working this time. The four cops who used excessive force in Minneapolis were terminated, Chauvin has been charged with murder, and the DoJ is looking into the application of Civil Rights violation charges. The system is working. Bad people who did bad things are being punished, investigated, charged and will get tried by a jury.Yet, in the face of the system working, protesters took to the streets of Minneapolis and – under the guise of “he started it” began rioting, looting, and committing acts of arson on an scale that makes Devils Night in Detroit look like a quaint bonfire. This escalated to the use of tear gas, rubber and sponge bullets on the one side and First Responders being the targets of gun fire by the protesters. Protesters were shooting at Fire and EMS First Responders and police officers.Let me give you some insight on the mentality of those who would execute such moves.After identifying myself on a Facebook thread as a retired professional firefighter/paramedic, I made my thoughts known about how I feel about the protesters anarchic actions. This is what I got in reply:“‘the system did what it was supposed to do’... that’s right, when a group of people are being killed by cops they should riot. Also, it’s not just “one of your brothers” who supposedly got shot at... it was one of your brothers who murdered a man over $20. So you should show some support and help keep your brothers in line. Pulling the first responders card as if that automatically makes you a hero? I’d say civil servant. One charged with protecting ALL the people. If you want to pull that card like a hero, ACT LIKE ONE, and do your part to end this police brutality instead of excusing it. There’s a huge difference between hero and boot licker.”The idiocy of this poster – who admits he was at the protests and got shot in the ass with a sponge bullet, is immense. How did his actions “play a part” in ending police brutality?...

Facebook, Their Bully Narrative & COVID-19

“Facebook announced Thursday that it will start warning users if they have liked, reacted or commented on harmful Covid-19 posts that the company has found to be misinformation and removed."Two things are quite apparent in this move. One, Facebook doesn’t believe the general public is smart enough (or worthy of the freedom) to research its own information.

The feature will roll out in the coming weeks...“‘These messages will connect people to COVID-19 myths debunked by the World Health Organization including ones we’ve removed from our platform for leading to imminent physical harm,’ Guy Rosen, Facebook’s vice president of integrity, said in a blog post.”– CNBC, April 26, 2020Two things are quite apparent in this move. One, Facebook doesn’t believe the general public is smart enough (or worthy of the freedom) to research its own information. And two, they are invested in a single point of view narrative with no intention of allowing opposing viewpoints.It is beyond arrogant to believe it okay to mandate what is acceptable information to consume. It is also reprehensible to bully people into acquiescing to your point of view. Facebook is doing both with its rollout of “warnings” about what people like. They are censoring – and, in fact, facilitating the expungement – of information that will allow people the opportunity to decide for themselves, and now they are attempting to intimidate those who don’t agree with their preferred narrative.This is – and I mean this literally – the institution of Orwell’s “Newspeak”:“Newspeak is the language of Oceania, a totalitarian superstate that is the setting of George Orwell's dystopian 1949 novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. To meet the ideological requirements of English Socialism (INGSOC) in Oceania, the ruling Party created Newspeak,[1] a controlled language of simplified grammar and restricted vocabulary, meant to limit the freedom of thought – personal identity, self-expression, free will – that threatens the ideology of the régime of Big Brother and the Party, who have criminalized such concepts into thought crime, as contradictions of INGSOC orthodoxy.”Is this not exactly what Facebook is doing? They are deciding – for you – what is harmful and what is not; what is truth and what is not; what is acceptable and what is not. They are dictating what the truth is, even as relevant questions abound on the issue of COVID-19 and how the government has handled the event. This is the very antithesis of freedom, by definition.Facebook will hide behind their stance that because they are a privately owned company they have the right to execute censorship on such a grotesque level. But because their product has an extraordinary effect on shaping our cultural narratives, I suggest they are bound by laws that safeguard our First Amendment rights to freedom of speech, freedom to redress government, and freedom of assembly, titrated to the 21 Century modes of communication.To that extent, it is without a doubt – and would be extremely hard to argue otherwise (although I am not about to be as hypocritical as Facebook as to say only my opinion counts) – that Facebook is:• Infringing on every user's constitutional free speech right by way of filtering information to only a preferred narrative (censorship)•...

Joe Biden's Pseudo-Denial: Tell Me It Ain't So, Joe

After weeks of stories in conservative social media outlets about Tara Reade’s sexual assault claim against presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden – and after weeks of deafening silence from the Progressive Left and specifically the, MeToo movement, now, only after the story’s become a thundering echo in the canyons of social media, are we starting to hear the voices of the Uber-Left questioning the issue.This morning, Joe Biden, in a typical Friday “document dump” fashion, went on MSNBC to deny the allegations leveled against him by Tara Reade.Please subscribe to our podcast at iHeart Radio, Pandora, Spotify, TuneIn, Apple Podcasts, Google Play, and on podcast platforms like Castbox, Podcast Addict, Stitcher, SoundCloud, Spreaker, and anywhere podcasts are heard.TRANSCRIPT:After weeks of stories in conservative social media outlets about Tara Reade’s sexual assault claim against presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden – and after weeks of deafening silence from the Progressive Left and specifically the #MeToo movement, now, only after the story’s become a thundering echo in the canyons of social media, are we starting to hear the voices of the Uber-Left questioning the issue.This morning, Joe Biden, in a typical Friday “document dump” fashion, went on MSNBC to deny the allegations leveled against him by Tara Reade. A document dump is an exercise where politicians feeling heat on an issue either make curt, generic denials or provide so much information that no immediate answer can be divined.(CLIP 1)Reade filed a lawsuit earlier this month claiming Biden sexually assaulted her in 1993. As reported at NPR.org (hardly a conservative outlet:“When Reade met up with the senator, she said, he pinned her up against a wall and penetrated her vagina with his fingers...‘His hands went underneath my clothing and he was touching me in my private areas and without my consent,’ Reade told NPR. She said Biden asked her whether she wanted to go somewhere else...Reade said that she pulled away and that Biden pointed his finger at her and said, ‘You're nothing to me, nothing.’”Reade’s lawsuit comes after years of blowing the whistle on Biden. Reade quite publicly accused Biden of inappropriate touching over a year ago and just recently a 1993 clip from Larry King Live surfaced that document’s Reade’s Mother exposing Mr. Biden for his actions. Reade’s efforts to get the media interested in the story has come to the point of almost begging. Hardly what the #MeToo movement was supposed to be about.But it isn’t just one person calling Biden out; it isn’t just Reade. As The Washington Times reported on April 12, 2020:“Biden’s conduct towards women first came under scrutiny just before he announced his presidential campaign last spring. Eight women, including Reade, came forward with allegations that the former Vice President made them feel uncomfortable with inappropriate physical displays of affection...Biden acknowledged the complaints and promised to ‘be more mindful about respecting personal space in the future.’”Nevertheless, Biden took to MSNBC this morning (remember that document dump thing I was talking about?) to issue his denial. He tantamount to said the accusation was insane. Bear with me, this clip is long...and disturbing:(Clip 2)His insistence on a few points presents questions and opportunities for some eyebrow-raising.Biden kept insisting that he, nor anyone to his knowledge (a very lawyerly use of words), had any knowledge of a complaint being filed. He said it over and over again. In the end, that doesn’t mean squat. A US Senator is not someone who handles day-to-days in the office, no matter if it’s the DC office or the many home offices. His Chief of Staff may have a cursory knowledge of what is going on in general, but...

Joe Biden's Pseudo-Denial: Tell Me It Ain't So, Joe

Surprise, Surprise, Wall St. Is Gaming the COVID-19 Bailout

A chief executive from a mid-size bank in New York has blown the whistle on mid-sized hedge funds, brokerage houses, and small to mid-sized law firms who have all been applying for the small business loans offered through the COVID-19 Payroll Protection Program. Why is this an issue? Well, for two reasons...Please subscribe to our podcast at iHeart Radio, Pandora, Spotify, TuneIn, Apple Podcasts, Google Play, and on podcast platforms like Castbox, Podcast Addict, Stitcher, SoundCloud, Spreaker, and anywhere podcasts are heard.TRANSCRIPT:I guess this is sort of a two-fer where subject matter is concerned, but it all centers on COVID-19 and the government’s handling of the event. At the outset, I acknowledge that hindsight is 20/20 but there are some corrective measures that can be taken for at least one of the issues addressed.The first subject I would like to address is a disturbing report coming out of FOX Business by Charlie Gasparino and Lydia Moynihan. This report highlights activities that some feared would happen in the wake of the Trump Administration’s COVID-19 stimulus plan.In the report, Gasparino and Moynihan share a conversation with a chief executive from a mid-size bank in New York who testifies that mid-sized hedge funds, brokerage houses, and small to mid-sized law firms have all been applying for the small business loans offered through the COVID-19 Payroll Protection Program. Why is this an issue? Well, for two reasons.First, each of the aforementioned entities continues to make money during the national quarantine. These are all retainer and fee-based businesses, many whose revenue flows are still quite substantial, even if diminished. This hardly puts them in the dire straits being felt by true small businesses and entrepreneurs. Most certainly these entities exist outside of the spirit of the effort.Second, the damage that these entities are causing – these mid-sized hedge funds, brokerage houses, and small to mid-sized law firms – is monumental in scale and uniquely selfish in the history of all acts of self-interest.Small businesses, true small businesses – the kinds that employ CPAs on an hourly basis or even use QuickBooks to do bookkeeping; the kinds that still drive their deposits to the bank each day, make up an estimated 99.9 percent of all businesses in the US, and that’s based on companies with fewer than 500 employees. According to the latest statistics from the Small Business Administration, roughly half of that number is attributed to companies with less than 100 employees.These businesses are restaurants, small Mom & Pop shops, individual entrepreneurs; these are businesses that employ the lion’s share of our population and power our economy, and without whom we would exist routinely in economic crisis. These are the companies and entrepreneurs the Paycheck Protection Program was meant to stabilize, not hedge funds, brokerage houses and law firms.I can either file it under the blind squirrel finds a nut category or the Republicans can f-up a one-car funeral category, but the concerns raised by some Democrats and Independents about bailout oversight have come to fruition. Entities that do not desperately need the funding are feeding from the Federal money trough and that’s despicable.That said, Mitchie McConnell and his establishment swamp buddies in the Federal GOP can snatch victory from the jaws of defeat if they execute legislation – and we all know Democrats would sign on to this (if they didn’t it would expose them as part of the swamp) – if they would execute legislation that would retroactively exclude entities like mid-sized hedge funds, brokerage houses, and small to mid-sized law firms that are still making a net profit over a certain percentage. Further, they should require them to repay – within 5 business days – the disingenuously procured loan...

A Disgraceful & Deceiving Headline from FOX News

I can’t say that I am completely surprised. Since Roger Ailes was unceremoniously dismissed from NewsCorp leadership – and since the Murdock boys have taken over the reins – FOX news has transformed from “we report, you decide” to “we’ll provide the sensationalist headlines, our sponsors will enjoy the clicks.”Please subscribe to our podcast at iHeart Radio, Pandora, Spotify, TuneIn, Apple Podcasts, Google Play, and on podcast platforms like Castbox, Podcast Addict, Stitcher, SoundCloud, Spreaker, and anywhere podcasts are heard.TRANSCRIPT:I can’t say that I am completely surprised. Since Roger Ailes was unceremoniously dismissed from NewsCorp leadership – and since the Murdock boys have taken over the reins – FOX news has transformed from “we report, you decide” to “we’ll provide the sensationalist headlines, our sponsors will enjoy the clicks.”The headline that stands in stark example today is this:“US Overtakes Italy to Have Highest Coronavirus Death Toll in the World After 2,000 Deaths in a Day”Why is this disgraceful? Because articles in their online publication – as well as a deluge of source-based comments – have outed the CDC for changing the reporting criteria related to COVID-19 deaths:“In cases where a definite diagnosis of COVID cannot be made but is suspected or likely (e.g. the circumstances are compelling with a reasonable degree of certainty) it is acceptable to report COVID-19 on a death certificate as ‘probable’ or ‘presumed.’”The latitude given for reporting a death as a COVID-19 death is stunning by any standard, let alone a medical standard. Given that this latitude exists, it is more than reasonable – and, in fact, intelligent – to conclude that the deaths attributed to COVID-19 to achieve the “highest coronavirus death toll in the world” are inflated and inaccurate.Further proof of inducement to inflate the number of deaths attributed to COVID-19 comes in another article published by FOX News. In the article, Minnesota Doctor Blasts 'Ridiculous' CDC Coronavirus Death Count Guidelines, State Senator and physician, Scott Jensen, spotlighted the obvious:“...anytime health care intersects with dollars it gets awkward...Right now Medicare has determined that if you have a COVID-19 admission to the hospital you’ll get paid $13,000. If that COVID-19 patient goes on a ventilator, you get $39,000; three times as much. Nobody can tell me, after 35 years in the world of medicine, that sometimes those kinds of things [have] impact on what we do.”In a previous article, I asked everyone to follow the money regarding the COVID-19 issue. I am doubling down on that advice today.In addition to the government paying out more for COVID-19 patients and their various levels of treatment through Medicare – and in the shadow of the federal government’s want to pay for all COVID-19 treatments, we have two smoky backroom figures that keep surfacing: Bill Gate and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.Strategic risk consultant and best-selling author, F. William Engdahl, writes:“In 2017 during the Davos World Economic Forum, Gates initiated something called CEPI, the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations...to ‘accelerate the development of vaccines we’ll need to contain outbreaks’ of future epidemics...“In October 2019 the Gates Foundation teamed up with the World Economic Forum and the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security to enact what they called a ‘fictional’ scenario simulation...Event 201 simulated an ‘outbreak of a novel zoonotic coronavirus’...The scenario then ends after 18 months when the fictional coronavirus has caused 65 million deaths.”Prophetic or curiously and suspiciously accurate, Gates’ scenario of a SARS-based...

COVID-19 & The Manipulated Information We're Getting

In several locations around the world – including Australia, France, and (ironically) China, hydroxychloroquine, when combined with zithromax and zinc, has proven incredibly effective against the COVID-19 virus, both as a treatment after infection and as a prophylactic. But you wouldn't know that if you listened to the usual Propgressive subjects in the media...Please subscribe to our podcast at iHeart Radio, Pandora, Spotify, TuneIn, Apple Podcasts, Google Play, and on podcast platforms like Castbox, Podcast Addict, Stitcher, SoundCloud, Spreaker, and anywhere podcasts are heard.TRANSCRIPT:“State Rep. Tavia Galonski (D-OH-35) tweeted Sunday after President Trump spoke about hydroxychloroquine at his daily press briefing... ‘I can’t take it anymore. I’ve been to The Hague. I’m making a referral for crimes against humanity tomorrow...Today’s press conference was the last straw. I know the need for a prosecution referral when I see one.’”Of course, Galonski is referring to the International Criminal Court at The Hague which the United States does not recognize. We don’t recognize it for the fact that to do so would put a non-constitutional adjudicating body above our Constitution, our rule of law, and our Supreme Court. Because we don’t recognize the ICC it has no teeth, no authority...nothing.Now, Galonski either doesn’t understand that her “referral” means diddly-squat (which makes her a blithering idiot), forgot that her “referral” means less than the New York Times at the bottom of a birdcage (which puts her in Joe Biden’s forgetfulness group), or is a political opportunist (which puts her ethics below that of shyster attorneys and CNN and MSNBC’s).We also need to look at her motivation via her campaign contributors. We need to see if she took any checks or quid pro quo in-kind contributions from big pharma, and here’s why.In several locations around the world – including Australia, France, and (ironically) China, Hydroxychloroquine, when combined with Zithromax and zinc, has proven incredibly effective against the COVID-19 virus, both as a treatment after infection and as a prophylactic. This would mean that any big pharma concocted, high-priced cure that would hold the treasuries of the world hostage to political extortion wouldn’t be so critical to achieving.And let me further juxtapose Galonski’s ignorance with this. A poll of 6,227 physicians in 30 countries across three continents, conducted by the global healthcare polling company Sermo, found that they believe hydroxychloroquine to be the best treatment for COVID-19. Further, the poll found that the United States has the lowest percentage of physicians prescribing the drug, although that number is growing.Sermo CEO, Peter Kirk is quoted as saying, “Physicians should have more of a voice in how we deal with the pandemic and be able to quickly share information with one another around the world.” He alluded to the poll results (albeit his organization’s) as a “treasure trove of global insight for policymakers.”And let’s file this under the “blind squirrel finding a nut” column.Bloomberg (of all places) reports that more than 99 percent of the coronavirus fatalities in Italy – one of the world’s COVID-19 hotspots – were people who suffered from previous medical conditions, i.e. they were already identified as vulnerable, sometimes three-times over.The Istituto Superiore di Sanita, Italy’s national health authority, discovered, post mortem, that of the 132,547 COVID-19 cases only 0.2 percent of the 16,523 fatalities (as opposed to the 22,837 who have recovered completely) were free and clear of any known preexisting condition. Those who died did so from complications related to COVID-19 in concert with their pre-existing conditions. The institute categorized those conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart...

The Progressives Are Doing It Right Before Our Eyes

One of the tactics that Progressives enjoy using most is the tactic of redefinition. We see it every day and in every avenue of life. It is facilitated by the idea of political correctness which in and of itself is an attempt to redefine and actually rewrite the Bill of Rights to the US Constitution. The odd thing is this. Political correctness is not legislated. It is imposed.

Political correctness is not legislated. It is imposed. That’s what makes it the most dangerous weapon in the Progressives’ arsenal.Some of the more obvious examples of Progressive redefinition come in the form of the ever-changing labels they bestow upon groups and movements. Since the 1950s, Blacks in the United States, as a group, have seen language referring to their demographic change almost constantly. Negroes, African-American, Black-American, black with a small “B”, and now Black with a capital “B”, Progressives have always been on the hunt for what resonates with the Black demographic.Recently, the Associated Press – which has an unbalanced influence of our media outlets when it comes to “style,” has issued a rash of edicts mandating the redefinition of journalistic lingo. Aside from their edict about the capital “B” in the use of “Black” in news items, the AP has also decided that if the use of the words “racism” or “racist” is applicable, “racially charged” should not be used.The USA Today gave a platform to certain Progressive academics, who suggest that the words “violence,” “looting,” and “rioting” should not be used when referring to what happened in the streets of Minneapolis and other urban centers in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death. The academics claim these words don’t accurately reflect the protesters’ “rage” and hopelessness.These language usage changes may seem small and inconsequential but when the many changes are applied over time they work to “nudge” our society’s “acceptable language” to facilitate a singular ideological view. In doing so, organizations like the AP and other media outlets are incrementally engineering our culture to a preferred viewpoint. Then there are the passive inclusions to existing definitions that completely change the meaning of a phrase or, in this case, a perceived movement. In the article, GOP Candidate Is Latest Linked to QAnon Conspiracy Theory, reporters Jim Anderson, Nicholas Riccardi, and Alan Fram, cite a professor at the University of Miami in their attempt to marry the “Q movement” to the Deep State:“The QAnon theory has ricocheted around the...

The Media & First Amendment Protection: Abuse of Power

The Framers established protection for the media so that it could speak truth to power; so the press was free to provide opposing views to a free people could so they could decide for themselves – at the ballot box – what direction they wanted to take our country.But the Framers never envisioned a media so corrupt, so ideologically agenda-driven, or so disingenuously manipulative as today’s media.

The Media & First Amendment Protection: Abuse of Power

An Act of War: ANTIFA Marches on America

As our urban centers around the United States literally burn - stores being looted and citizens sleeping with loaded weapons at the ready, it has become abundantly clear that this destruction and violence has nothing at all to do with the death of a Black man in Minneapolis. In stead, it has everything to do with an act of war and the attempted overthrow of the US government by ANTIFA, a far-Left, Progressive anarchist group.Please subscribe to our podcast at iHeart Radio, Pandora, Spotify, TuneIn, Apple Podcasts, Google Play, and on podcast platforms like Castbox, Podcast Addict, Stitcher, SoundCloud, Spreaker, and anywhere podcasts are heard.TRANSCRIPTAs of this recording, the city of Minneapolis and its surrounding counties – along with urban areas around the country – are on fire, literally. Monuments in Washington, DC – including the World War II Memorial and the Lincoln Memorial – have been defaced. A 204-year-old church complex, St. John’s, across from the White House, was briefly set afire. And posters are popping up all over urban centers organizing ANTIFA terrorists to “move the battle to the suburbs”. A federal agent in Oakland was killed and law enforcement – as well as fire and EMS personnel – are under violent attack from coast to coast.If anyone believes that this violence and destruction is related to the death of George Floyd they are delusional. This is a full-on attempt at crippling the country by Progressive domestic terrorists. This is an act of war at the hands of ANTIFA.By all rational accounts, the system – which in some cases used to ignore the use of excessive force by law enforcement – is working this time. The four cops who are accused of used excessive force in Minneapolis were terminated, Officer Derek Chauvin has been charged with 3rd degree murder and manslaughter, and the DoJ is looking into the application of Civil Rights violation charges. The system is working. Bad people who did bad things are being punished, investigated, charged and will get tried by a jury.Yet, in the face of the system working, legitimate protesters took to the streets of Minneapolis. They rightfully marched to protest a questionable death of a man in police custody. These protesters had the hearts and minds of every American. If these protests would have stayed non-violent that would still be the case today. Sadly, violent ideological opportunists; anarchists and hardcore socialists took advantage of the situation.Now, rioting, looting, and acts of arson on an scale that makes Devils Night in Detroit look like a quaint bonfire have exploded in many urban areas and are threatening to expand into suburban areas across the country. In some larger urban areas this criminal activity has ventured into the suburban areas. Shopping and business centers are closing out of an abundance of caution and county and suburban police forces are gearing up in preparation for the worst. All officers are on heightened alert, public works trucks are set-up as barriers at intersections, people are sleeping with loaded weapons at the ready.This unrest has spread across our nation in short order; from New York, to Chicago, Nashville to Atlanta, Louisville, Des Moines, Washington, DC, Los Angeles, and other major cities in the United States, and has done so in a curious sense of coordination and precision.These “protests” stink of being manufactured and pre-prepared, and evidence is pointing to the involvement of Progressive-Left ANTIFA domestic terror group from coast to coast.Adam Leggat, a former British Army counterterrorism officer and security consultant specializing in crowd management for the Densus Group, describes the ANTIFA agitators thusly:“The real hard-core guys, this is their job: They’re involved in this struggle...They need protests on the street to give them cover to move in.”USA...

Minneapolis: The Consequences of Disingenuous Identity Politics

As Minneapolis burns, the abstract failure of identity politics can be seen in the plumes of smoke that hovers above the city. The system is working; holding those responsible for the death of a minor offender responsible for their actions. But arrogant and self-righteous protesters are opportunistically wreaking havoc on the city, destroying their own neighborhoods, and destroying their neighbors' dreams.To what end?Please subscribe to our podcast at iHeart Radio, Pandora, Spotify, TuneIn, Apple Podcasts, Google Play, and on podcast platforms like Castbox, Podcast Addict, Stitcher, SoundCloud, Spreaker, and anywhere podcasts are heard.TRANSCRIPTI was going to talk about how we at The Underground are going to start featuring insightful articles that will help expand the thinking about issues that are relevant in today’s ideological and political spheres, but the news coming out of Minneapolis – and from other urban centers – has circumvented those plans.As of this recording, the city of Minneapolis and its surrounding counties are on fire, literally. The use of excessive force by at least one of four Minneapolis police officers caused the death of another human being, George Floyd. As it stands, the four police officers associated with this crime have been terminated by the Minneapolis Police Department and the chief offender, Officer Derek Chauvin, who had a history of reprimands for questionable use of force, has been charged with 3rd degree murder and manslaughter.Ironic here is that a Progressive city administration refused to take issue with Chauvin when the use of force issue was originally brought up. Even more ironic is that when Progressive darling Sen. Amy Klobuchar served as Hennepin County attorney, she took no action against Chauvin.But I digress.By all rational accounts, the system – which used to ignore the use of excessive force by law enforcement – is working this time. The four cops who used excessive force in Minneapolis were terminated, Chauvin has been charged with murder, and the DoJ is looking into the application of Civil Rights violation charges. The system is working. Bad people who did bad things are being punished, investigated, charged and will get tried by a jury.Yet, in the face of the system working, protesters took to the streets of Minneapolis and – under the guise of “he started it” began rioting, looting, and committing acts of arson on an scale that makes Devils Night in Detroit look like a quaint bonfire. This escalated to the use of tear gas, rubber and sponge bullets on the one side and First Responders being the targets of gun fire by the protesters. Protesters were shooting at Fire and EMS First Responders and police officers.Let me give you some insight on the mentality of those who would execute such moves.After identifying myself on a Facebook thread as a retired professional firefighter/paramedic, I made my thoughts known about how I feel about the protesters anarchic actions. This is what I got in reply:“‘the system did what it was supposed to do’... that’s right, when a group of people are being killed by cops they should riot. Also, it’s not just “one of your brothers” who supposedly got shot at... it was one of your brothers who murdered a man over $20. So you should show some support and help keep your brothers in line. Pulling the first responders card as if that automatically makes you a hero? I’d say civil servant. One charged with protecting ALL the people. If you want to pull that card like a hero, ACT LIKE ONE, and do your part to end this police brutality instead of excusing it. There’s a huge difference between hero and boot licker.”The idiocy of this poster – who admits he was at the protests and got shot in the ass with a sponge bullet, is immense. How did his actions “play a part” in ending police brutality?...

The feature will roll out in the coming weeks...“‘These messages will connect people to COVID-19 myths debunked by the World Health Organization including ones we’ve removed from our platform for leading to imminent physical harm,’ Guy Rosen, Facebook’s vice president of integrity, said in a blog post.”– CNBC, April 26, 2020Two things are quite apparent in this move. One, Facebook doesn’t believe the general public is smart enough (or worthy of the freedom) to research its own information. And two, they are invested in a single point of view narrative with no intention of allowing opposing viewpoints.It is beyond arrogant to believe it okay to mandate what is acceptable information to consume. It is also reprehensible to bully people into acquiescing to your point of view. Facebook is doing both with its rollout of “warnings” about what people like. They are censoring – and, in fact, facilitating the expungement – of information that will allow people the opportunity to decide for themselves, and now they are attempting to intimidate those who don’t agree with their preferred narrative.This is – and I mean this literally – the institution of Orwell’s “Newspeak”:“Newspeak is the language of Oceania, a totalitarian superstate that is the setting of George Orwell's dystopian 1949 novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. To meet the ideological requirements of English Socialism (INGSOC) in Oceania, the ruling Party created Newspeak,[1] a controlled language of simplified grammar and restricted vocabulary, meant to limit the freedom of thought – personal identity, self-expression, free will – that threatens the ideology of the régime of Big Brother and the Party, who have criminalized such concepts into thought crime, as contradictions of INGSOC orthodoxy.”Is this not exactly what Facebook is doing? They are deciding – for you – what is harmful and what is not; what is truth and what is not; what is acceptable and what is not. They are dictating what the truth is, even as relevant questions abound on the issue of COVID-19 and how the government has handled the event. This is the very antithesis of freedom, by definition.Facebook will hide behind their stance that because they are a privately owned company they have the right to execute censorship on such a grotesque level. But because their product has an extraordinary effect on shaping our cultural narratives, I suggest they are bound by laws that safeguard our First Amendment rights to freedom of speech, freedom to redress government, and freedom of assembly, titrated to the 21 Century modes of communication.To that extent, it is without a doubt – and would be extremely hard to argue otherwise (although I am not about to be as hypocritical as Facebook as to say only my opinion counts) – that Facebook is:• Infringing on every user's constitutional free speech right by way of filtering information to only a preferred narrative (censorship)•...

Joe Biden's Pseudo-Denial: Tell Me It Ain't So, Joe

After weeks of stories in conservative social media outlets about Tara Reade’s sexual assault claim against presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden – and after weeks of deafening silence from the Progressive Left and specifically the, MeToo movement, now, only after the story’s become a thundering echo in the canyons of social media, are we starting to hear the voices of the Uber-Left questioning the issue.This morning, Joe Biden, in a typical Friday “document dump” fashion, went on MSNBC to deny the allegations leveled against him by Tara Reade.Please subscribe to our podcast at iHeart Radio, Pandora, Spotify, TuneIn, Apple Podcasts, Google Play, and on podcast platforms like Castbox, Podcast Addict, Stitcher, SoundCloud, Spreaker, and anywhere podcasts are heard.TRANSCRIPT:After weeks of stories in conservative social media outlets about Tara Reade’s sexual assault claim against presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden – and after weeks of deafening silence from the Progressive Left and specifically the #MeToo movement, now, only after the story’s become a thundering echo in the canyons of social media, are we starting to hear the voices of the Uber-Left questioning the issue.This morning, Joe Biden, in a typical Friday “document dump” fashion, went on MSNBC to deny the allegations leveled against him by Tara Reade. A document dump is an exercise where politicians feeling heat on an issue either make curt, generic denials or provide so much information that no immediate answer can be divined.(CLIP 1)Reade filed a lawsuit earlier this month claiming Biden sexually assaulted her in 1993. As reported at NPR.org (hardly a conservative outlet:“When Reade met up with the senator, she said, he pinned her up against a wall and penetrated her vagina with his fingers...‘His hands went underneath my clothing and he was touching me in my private areas and without my consent,’ Reade told NPR. She said Biden asked her whether she wanted to go somewhere else...Reade said that she pulled away and that Biden pointed his finger at her and said, ‘You're nothing to me, nothing.’”Reade’s lawsuit comes after years of blowing the whistle on Biden. Reade quite publicly accused Biden of inappropriate touching over a year ago and just recently a 1993 clip from Larry King Live surfaced that document’s Reade’s Mother exposing Mr. Biden for his actions. Reade’s efforts to get the media interested in the story has come to the point of almost begging. Hardly what the #MeToo movement was supposed to be about.But it isn’t just one person calling Biden out; it isn’t just Reade. As The Washington Times reported on April 12, 2020:“Biden’s conduct towards women first came under scrutiny just before he announced his presidential campaign last spring. Eight women, including Reade, came forward with allegations that the former Vice President made them feel uncomfortable with inappropriate physical displays of affection...Biden acknowledged the complaints and promised to ‘be more mindful about respecting personal space in the future.’”Nevertheless, Biden took to MSNBC this morning (remember that document dump thing I was talking about?) to issue his denial. He tantamount to said the accusation was insane. Bear with me, this clip is long...and disturbing:(Clip 2)His insistence on a few points presents questions and opportunities for some eyebrow-raising.Biden kept insisting that he, nor anyone to his knowledge (a very lawyerly use of words), had any knowledge of a complaint being filed. He said it over and over again. In the end, that doesn’t mean squat. A US Senator is not someone who handles day-to-days in the office, no matter if it’s the DC office or the many home offices. His Chief of Staff may have a cursory knowledge of what is going on in general, but...

Joe Biden's Pseudo-Denial: Tell Me It Ain't So, Joe

Surprise, Surprise, Wall St. Is Gaming the COVID-19 Bailout

A chief executive from a mid-size bank in New York has blown the whistle on mid-sized hedge funds, brokerage houses, and small to mid-sized law firms who have all been applying for the small business loans offered through the COVID-19 Payroll Protection Program. Why is this an issue? Well, for two reasons...Please subscribe to our podcast at iHeart Radio, Pandora, Spotify, TuneIn, Apple Podcasts, Google Play, and on podcast platforms like Castbox, Podcast Addict, Stitcher, SoundCloud, Spreaker, and anywhere podcasts are heard.TRANSCRIPT:I guess this is sort of a two-fer where subject matter is concerned, but it all centers on COVID-19 and the government’s handling of the event. At the outset, I acknowledge that hindsight is 20/20 but there are some corrective measures that can be taken for at least one of the issues addressed.The first subject I would like to address is a disturbing report coming out of FOX Business by Charlie Gasparino and Lydia Moynihan. This report highlights activities that some feared would happen in the wake of the Trump Administration’s COVID-19 stimulus plan.In the report, Gasparino and Moynihan share a conversation with a chief executive from a mid-size bank in New York who testifies that mid-sized hedge funds, brokerage houses, and small to mid-sized law firms have all been applying for the small business loans offered through the COVID-19 Payroll Protection Program. Why is this an issue? Well, for two reasons.First, each of the aforementioned entities continues to make money during the national quarantine. These are all retainer and fee-based businesses, many whose revenue flows are still quite substantial, even if diminished. This hardly puts them in the dire straits being felt by true small businesses and entrepreneurs. Most certainly these entities exist outside of the spirit of the effort.Second, the damage that these entities are causing – these mid-sized hedge funds, brokerage houses, and small to mid-sized law firms – is monumental in scale and uniquely selfish in the history of all acts of self-interest.Small businesses, true small businesses – the kinds that employ CPAs on an hourly basis or even use QuickBooks to do bookkeeping; the kinds that still drive their deposits to the bank each day, make up an estimated 99.9 percent of all businesses in the US, and that’s based on companies with fewer than 500 employees. According to the latest statistics from the Small Business Administration, roughly half of that number is attributed to companies with less than 100 employees.These businesses are restaurants, small Mom & Pop shops, individual entrepreneurs; these are businesses that employ the lion’s share of our population and power our economy, and without whom we would exist routinely in economic crisis. These are the companies and entrepreneurs the Paycheck Protection Program was meant to stabilize, not hedge funds, brokerage houses and law firms.I can either file it under the blind squirrel finds a nut category or the Republicans can f-up a one-car funeral category, but the concerns raised by some Democrats and Independents about bailout oversight have come to fruition. Entities that do not desperately need the funding are feeding from the Federal money trough and that’s despicable.That said, Mitchie McConnell and his establishment swamp buddies in the Federal GOP can snatch victory from the jaws of defeat if they execute legislation – and we all know Democrats would sign on to this (if they didn’t it would expose them as part of the swamp) – if they would execute legislation that would retroactively exclude entities like mid-sized hedge funds, brokerage houses, and small to mid-sized law firms that are still making a net profit over a certain percentage. Further, they should require them to repay – within 5 business days – the disingenuously procured loan...

A Disgraceful & Deceiving Headline from FOX News

I can’t say that I am completely surprised. Since Roger Ailes was unceremoniously dismissed from NewsCorp leadership – and since the Murdock boys have taken over the reins – FOX news has transformed from “we report, you decide” to “we’ll provide the sensationalist headlines, our sponsors will enjoy the clicks.”Please subscribe to our podcast at iHeart Radio, Pandora, Spotify, TuneIn, Apple Podcasts, Google Play, and on podcast platforms like Castbox, Podcast Addict, Stitcher, SoundCloud, Spreaker, and anywhere podcasts are heard.TRANSCRIPT:I can’t say that I am completely surprised. Since Roger Ailes was unceremoniously dismissed from NewsCorp leadership – and since the Murdock boys have taken over the reins – FOX news has transformed from “we report, you decide” to “we’ll provide the sensationalist headlines, our sponsors will enjoy the clicks.”The headline that stands in stark example today is this:“US Overtakes Italy to Have Highest Coronavirus Death Toll in the World After 2,000 Deaths in a Day”Why is this disgraceful? Because articles in their online publication – as well as a deluge of source-based comments – have outed the CDC for changing the reporting criteria related to COVID-19 deaths:“In cases where a definite diagnosis of COVID cannot be made but is suspected or likely (e.g. the circumstances are compelling with a reasonable degree of certainty) it is acceptable to report COVID-19 on a death certificate as ‘probable’ or ‘presumed.’”The latitude given for reporting a death as a COVID-19 death is stunning by any standard, let alone a medical standard. Given that this latitude exists, it is more than reasonable – and, in fact, intelligent – to conclude that the deaths attributed to COVID-19 to achieve the “highest coronavirus death toll in the world” are inflated and inaccurate.Further proof of inducement to inflate the number of deaths attributed to COVID-19 comes in another article published by FOX News. In the article, Minnesota Doctor Blasts 'Ridiculous' CDC Coronavirus Death Count Guidelines, State Senator and physician, Scott Jensen, spotlighted the obvious:“...anytime health care intersects with dollars it gets awkward...Right now Medicare has determined that if you have a COVID-19 admission to the hospital you’ll get paid $13,000. If that COVID-19 patient goes on a ventilator, you get $39,000; three times as much. Nobody can tell me, after 35 years in the world of medicine, that sometimes those kinds of things [have] impact on what we do.”In a previous article, I asked everyone to follow the money regarding the COVID-19 issue. I am doubling down on that advice today.In addition to the government paying out more for COVID-19 patients and their various levels of treatment through Medicare – and in the shadow of the federal government’s want to pay for all COVID-19 treatments, we have two smoky backroom figures that keep surfacing: Bill Gate and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.Strategic risk consultant and best-selling author, F. William Engdahl, writes:“In 2017 during the Davos World Economic Forum, Gates initiated something called CEPI, the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations...to ‘accelerate the development of vaccines we’ll need to contain outbreaks’ of future epidemics...“In October 2019 the Gates Foundation teamed up with the World Economic Forum and the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security to enact what they called a ‘fictional’ scenario simulation...Event 201 simulated an ‘outbreak of a novel zoonotic coronavirus’...The scenario then ends after 18 months when the fictional coronavirus has caused 65 million deaths.”Prophetic or curiously and suspiciously accurate, Gates’ scenario of a SARS-based...

COVID-19 & The Manipulated Information We're Getting

In several locations around the world – including Australia, France, and (ironically) China, hydroxychloroquine, when combined with zithromax and zinc, has proven incredibly effective against the COVID-19 virus, both as a treatment after infection and as a prophylactic. But you wouldn't know that if you listened to the usual Propgressive subjects in the media...Please subscribe to our podcast at iHeart Radio, Pandora, Spotify, TuneIn, Apple Podcasts, Google Play, and on podcast platforms like Castbox, Podcast Addict, Stitcher, SoundCloud, Spreaker, and anywhere podcasts are heard.TRANSCRIPT:“State Rep. Tavia Galonski (D-OH-35) tweeted Sunday after President Trump spoke about hydroxychloroquine at his daily press briefing... ‘I can’t take it anymore. I’ve been to The Hague. I’m making a referral for crimes against humanity tomorrow...Today’s press conference was the last straw. I know the need for a prosecution referral when I see one.’”Of course, Galonski is referring to the International Criminal Court at The Hague which the United States does not recognize. We don’t recognize it for the fact that to do so would put a non-constitutional adjudicating body above our Constitution, our rule of law, and our Supreme Court. Because we don’t recognize the ICC it has no teeth, no authority...nothing.Now, Galonski either doesn’t understand that her “referral” means diddly-squat (which makes her a blithering idiot), forgot that her “referral” means less than the New York Times at the bottom of a birdcage (which puts her in Joe Biden’s forgetfulness group), or is a political opportunist (which puts her ethics below that of shyster attorneys and CNN and MSNBC’s).We also need to look at her motivation via her campaign contributors. We need to see if she took any checks or quid pro quo in-kind contributions from big pharma, and here’s why.In several locations around the world – including Australia, France, and (ironically) China, Hydroxychloroquine, when combined with Zithromax and zinc, has proven incredibly effective against the COVID-19 virus, both as a treatment after infection and as a prophylactic. This would mean that any big pharma concocted, high-priced cure that would hold the treasuries of the world hostage to political extortion wouldn’t be so critical to achieving.And let me further juxtapose Galonski’s ignorance with this. A poll of 6,227 physicians in 30 countries across three continents, conducted by the global healthcare polling company Sermo, found that they believe hydroxychloroquine to be the best treatment for COVID-19. Further, the poll found that the United States has the lowest percentage of physicians prescribing the drug, although that number is growing.Sermo CEO, Peter Kirk is quoted as saying, “Physicians should have more of a voice in how we deal with the pandemic and be able to quickly share information with one another around the world.” He alluded to the poll results (albeit his organization’s) as a “treasure trove of global insight for policymakers.”And let’s file this under the “blind squirrel finding a nut” column.Bloomberg (of all places) reports that more than 99 percent of the coronavirus fatalities in Italy – one of the world’s COVID-19 hotspots – were people who suffered from previous medical conditions, i.e. they were already identified as vulnerable, sometimes three-times over.The Istituto Superiore di Sanita, Italy’s national health authority, discovered, post mortem, that of the 132,547 COVID-19 cases only 0.2 percent of the 16,523 fatalities (as opposed to the 22,837 who have recovered completely) were free and clear of any known preexisting condition. Those who died did so from complications related to COVID-19 in concert with their pre-existing conditions. The institute categorized those conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart...
