DML Morning Briefing Mon. Apr. 26: Hollywood targets cops; Al-Qaeda, climate, Fauci and more…
By Team DML
Today is April 26 and I am Dennis Michael Lynch. Below are my opinions on the stories grabbing headlines this morning. I hope you share this briefing as doing so will make you the smartest person in the room, in my opinion.
1 – Hollywood elite turns Oscars into far-left hate speech targeting cops
The 2021 Oscars on Sunday featured countless celebrities referencing Derek Chauvin’s murder conviction and condemning “police brutality” in the United States.
Travon Free, one of the directors of “Two Distant Strangers,” targeted police in his acceptance speech.
“Today the police will kill three people and tomorrow the police will kill three people, and the day after that the police will kill three people because on average the police in America every day kill three people,” Free said.
Regina King kicked off the Academy Awards by saying she was about to join the protesters if the Derek Chauvin trial had ended up differently.
“We are mourning the loss of so many, and I have to be honest, if things had gone differently this past week in Minneapolis, I might have traded in my heels for marching boots,” King said, in reference to the verdict last week for Derek Chauvin, the former police officer who was found guilty of all charges in the death of George Floyd.
Tyler Perry took a different tone, urging Americans to reject hate and “stand in the middle,” as he accepted a humanitarian honor at the Academy Awards on Sunday.
“It is my hope that all of us would teach our kids, and not only to remember, just refuse hate. Don’t hate anybody. I refuse to hate someone because they are Mexican, or because they are Black, or white, or LGBTQ,” Perry, 51, said.
DML: Sick and tired of all these attacks on our cops!
2 – Georgia Lawmakers Pass Professional Licenses for Illegal Aliens After Lobbying from Chamber of Commerce
Breitbart reports: Georgia lawmakers passed bills last week that would allow illegal aliens in the state to obtain professional licenses, following lobbying from the state’s Chamber of Commerce.
The legislative package, as the Center for Immigration Studies noted, would allow illegal aliens to apply for and obtain professional licenses from the Georgia Secretary of State’s office to work as counselors, social workers, therapists, speech pathologists, audiologists, occupational therapists, and other jobs.
“At the moment, three parallel bills (HB 34, HB 268, and HB 395) have been passed by an inattentive legislature and are on the governor’s desk for signature, veto, or becoming law without his signature,” David North wrote in his analysis. “The governor, who supported the earlier statutes on keeping illegal aliens out of these professions, has not made his position clear on the current matter.”
Georgia is only the latest state to consider providing illegal aliens with more public benefits. After New Jersey passed similar legislation last year, illegal aliens in the state are now applying for and receiving professional licenses. In Colorado, this month, the state legislature passed professional licenses for illegal aliens.
DML: There goes more American jobs.
3 – Pro-Al-Qaeda magazine calls for lone-wolf attacks amid protests in US
According to a report published recently by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), a pro-Al-Qaeda group is calling on its supporters living in Western countries to take advantage of the protests and civil unrest to carry out lone wolf attacks, and they’re willing to pay with Bitcoin.
On April 14, 2021, the pro-Al-Qaeda Jaysh Al-Malahim Al-Electroni released the second issue of its magazine Wolves of Manhattan, which included several articles inciting its supporters who live in Western countries to exploit civil unrest to carry out lone wolf attacks.
The opening article, titled “The Lone Wolf And The Protests,” tells supporters to carry out terrorist acts under the cover of protests that are taking place in some Western countries. It identifies the U.S. and France as being among the top countries that currently suffer from civil unrest, along with Italy, Germany, and Britain.
MEMRI shared alarming details from the “Wolves of Manhattan” article, as they provide tips and instructions on how their supporters should carry out their attacks, infiltrate into protest groups, pretending to one of them, and steer the protesters into committing more violence.
The magazine tells lone wolves to choose protests taking place at night, instructs them to use car-rammings to kill more people, to stir up fights with police officers and then attack with Molotov cocktails, and offers a reward of $60,000 in Bitcoin to the first person (Christian, Jew or atheist) who kills a police officer in a Western country.
4 – Former Obama Official Claims In New Book That Climate Change Rhetoric Is ‘Effort To Persuade Rather Than Inform’
The Daily Caller reports: Much of the information being told to the American public regarding climate change is manipulated for agenda-driven purposes, a former Obama administration official writes in a book excerpt that was published by the New York Post.
The information that is passed along to the American public regarding climate change “is an effort to persuade rather than inform, and the information presented withholds either essential context or what doesn’t ‘fit,’” Dr. Steven Koonin, the former under secretary of science at the U.S. Department of Energy in the Obama administration, claimed in the excerpt from his book, “Unsettled: What Climate Science Tells Us, What It Doesn’t, and Why It Matters,” which was published Saturday by the Post.
Koonin acknowledged that the earth has warmed and humans have contributed to that, but the overall impact is minimal — and that part is not being explained by government officials and policy experts. “Yes, it’s true that the globe is warming, and that humans are exerting a warming influence upon it. But beyond that — to paraphrase the classic movie ‘The Princess Bride’ — I do not think ‘The Science’ says what you think it says,” he wrote.
“Both research literature and government reports state clearly that heat waves in the US are now no more common than they were in 1900, and that the warmest temperatures in the US have not risen in the past fifty years,” Koonin also wrote.
DML: But… as a CNN director recently bragged… “Fear sells.”
5 – Fauci flips again, acknowledges outdoor COVID-19 transmission ‘low,’ expects updated mask guidance for outdoor settings
Dr. Anthony Fauci said in an ABC News “This Week” interview over the weekend that the Centers for Disease Control will soon provide updated guidance on using face masks in outdoor settings, and called it “common sense” to do so.
Fauci acknowledged that the risk for people engaging in outdoor activities is “miniscule.”
“What I believe you’re going to be hearing, what the country is going to be hearing soon, is updated guidelines from the CDC. The CDC is a science-based organization. They don’t want to make any guidelines unless they look at the data and the data backs it up. But when you look around at the common sense situation, the risk is really low, especially if you’re vaccinated,” he said.
A high school track and field coach in Oregon is speaking out, demanding the mask mandate be lifted for athletes while they’re participating in sports, after a high school track runner fainted at the finish line because she was forced to wear a mask while running.
Summit High School junior Maggie Williams was a couple meters from the finish line of her 800-meter race when she started to lose consciousness and collapsed at the finish line. Williams set a school record, skidding across the finish line in a time of 2 minutes, 8.45 seconds. Her time is also currently the fastest in Oregon this year, and the fourth-fastest high school time recorded in the U.S. But she wasn’t even conscious the first few moments to know she had won.
Coach Dave Turnbull has spoken out in a number of interviews over the past few days, warning that Maggie could have been critically injured in the incident.
DML: Stop the mask mandates for athletes NOW!
