    Such great news today and all of the media could do was yell out “how does any of this help George Floyd”. Our media is a disgrace! Stuart Varney was also appalled.

      fanbeav:
      I just learned a new term at Townhall – safetyism.

      At the New York Times, and other media outlets, the new orthodoxy is that you avoid, if possible, reporting facts and opinions that will upset their readers, and the journalists themselves.

      The younger reporters at the NYT are in upheaval about Tom Cotton’s opinion piece being printed that advocates for military intervention in the riots. Their position is that unpopular opinions should be censored, because they are unpopular. Emotion is now to trump all else.

      Be aware that the younger journalists adhere to this leftist philosophy, and the older liberal free-speech journalists are disappearing. Older readers at this web site may have trouble grasping the leftist trope that truth is utterly subjective, and can be decided by popular opinion, or leftist dogma.

      We have to discard the notion that journalists are concerned by facts or truth. They will now sacrifice their jobs, their very profession, to advance the holy leftist cause. Reporting politically incorrect truth will henceforth be obscene.

        Leftist can utter profanities, obscenities all day long.
        You can also use a similar vocabulary around them.
        It’s fine and dandy to besmirch The Lord. It’s actually
        encouraged.

        You can do all of this. as long as you don’t utter this
        one word about criticizing or questioning any of their
        words or deeds.

        That word is “no”. And, basically that is the only
        word these entitled brats consider obscene.

      How did any of their reporting help George Floyd? How many others are now dead because they, the media, applauded the violence? How many businesses were vandalized and looted? How many government buildings and monuments have been defaced – as these reporters excitedly watched the damage being done; their cameramen recording it for the evening news?

        The count I saw today was 14 murdered by the rioters. And 1 death caused indirectly (the man dragged by the FedEx truck).

        Talk about having blood on your hands…

          Then to top it off they televised George Floyd’s body being hauled around the country like a two headed animal carcass for people he never knew to gawk at. Even in death they denied him dignity. To them he was just a symbol of their slobbering narrative. Maybe when the media is done with him his family can give him a loving funeral that’s respectful of the man they love.

              See this is the problem. Whites uplifting black neighborhoods whose residents turn around and vote for the same people that have destroyed them in the first place. Around and around this vicious cycle goes. What the Drew Brees do is pave the road to hell with good intentions. Brees should have given his money to working class moms and dads who work 3 or 4 jobs to keep their nuclear families together and who are morally sound and believe in God, family and country. What about the 40-year-old father of 4 who along with his wife are trying to raise decent children and who don’t make enough to have a vacation or by a new car, Mr. Brees?

                In fairness to Brees, from what I’ve read of his works, he’s helped a lot of people, including, I am sure, the working mom and dad with kids.

                However, your point about the people he helped in the 9th ward?Yep, it’s machine politics in most cities and it’s not just blacks that keep voting the same way w/out getting anyting in return. It’s blue collar unions folks too.

                The same thing has been happening in a formerly red state of Nevada…and once red state NM. In Nevada, the unions have turned the hospitality workers into “Don’t-even- think -about- it: vote-Dem” automatons.

        What a dumb article.. like Esper controls the military ..President Trump is the commander in Chief..

        On an additional note …re Esper and President Trump relationship..

        I think the other day Esper was used to restate the obvious. By saying President Trump should not send active military troops…… it places the governors in the cross hairs.. safety and security is the responsibiliy of the Governor… not the Federal Government or the President.

        President Trump restated today.. Governors controll the streets.. (we.. the federal government will help.. but you have to ask). So Cuomo owns all the downside. If he restores order he gets the plus but also the down side for waiting.

        President Trump only has the upside… we send in the troops and restore order when Gov Cuomo could not. Gov Cuomo is in a no win situation.. should have asked for help the first day to cut his losses.. now he has all the looting baggage..

    A little late in making comments. Just a few that I caught from President Donald J Trump,
    1) Over 20 million tests. ( Yes there are more positive for COVID-19 because we have the most testing in the world).
    2) Ventilators, no American that needed a ventilator was denied one. ( We are manufacturing thousands every week and exporting them to countries less fortunate than us) The LSM is getting their noses pushed into …, Love our President.
    3) Plus 3 million new jobs, for middle of May. Unemployment rate not 20 plus percent but under 14 percent (13 pt something).
    4) Oil four weeks ago at zero, today ~40 dollars per barrel.
    5) These numbers are with most of the country still under lockdown.

        Obama got rid of all our war generals, and the generation we have now are the guys who came up during his presidency. General promotions are 100% political; I know of at least one general who was denied her promotion because some feminist senator didn’t like something she’d done with a court martial. I’m guessing the generals we have now were the ones “acceptable” to Obama.
