Episode 784 – Our Enemies are Shaking!

Someone lies about a fellow student at the University of Virginia. Instead of getting disciplined, she gets honored because she’s fat and black.

Glen Youngkin, governor of Virginia, finally does something that should have been done ages ago.

And the Biden administration is doing all it can to destroy the military while bitching about not being able to recruit new soldiers.

Dumbass of the Day

They Are There to Hurt You

According to the New York Post:

Beauty giant Dove has partnered with a Black Lives Matter activist to promote “fat liberation,” after she was accused of wrongfully getting a white student expelled from her university over a “misheard” remark.

Zyanha Bryant, a community organizer and student activist studying at the University of Virginia, made the announcement she was a “Dove ambassador” on her Instagram page at the end of August, as she spoke about her goal of ending the stigma of being overweight.

Here’s what she said. See if you can make sense of it:

In other words, I am morbidly obese and am disgusting and you must honor me. Well, this story gets worse.

But even though Bryant has been praised for her work with Black Lives Matter and getting the Robert E. Lee statue taken down in Charlottesville, she has also come under fire in recent months for her efforts to get a white student named Morgan Bettinger suspended from campus.

She claimed Bettinger referred to BLM protesters as “good speed bumps” in the summer of 2020 — only to later admit she may have “misheard” her.

The incident began in July 2020, when Bettinger mistakenly drove down a street where BLM protesters had gathered.

She told Reason magazine she saw a dump truck partially blocking the road, but because the street was not completely blocked off, she continued driving.

When she realized the road was actually being blocked off from traffic, Bettinger said, she decided to park her car and see what was going on.

As she passed by, Bettinger said, the truck driver began talking to her, and the two had a brief conversation.

Bettinger says she remembered telling the truck driver something along the lines of, “It’s a good thing that you are here because otherwise these people would have been speed bumps,” trying to praise his efforts to block traffic.

The driver later corroborated Bettinger’s remark to local cops.

But Bryant overheard part of the conversation and tweeted that she said the protesters “would make ‘good speedbumps’” along with a video showing Bettinger backing down the street in her car while Bryant and several other protesters follow.

“She then called the police and started crying, saying we were attacking her,” Bryant claimed.

The tweet was quickly shared more than a thousand times, and internet sleuths soon identified the driver as Bettinger.

The fact that she had pro-police social media posts, and her late father had worked as a police officer, only seemed to irritate people more, according to the Daily Mail.

Just one day later, Bryant began demanding that school administrators expel Bettinger.

“EMAIL these UVA deans now to demand that Morgan face consequences for her actions and that UVA stop graduating racists,” she tweeted.

Bryant herself filed a complaint with the University Judiciary Committee, a student-run disciplinary system, alleging Bettinger had threatened students’ health and safety.

It found Bettinger guilty of making a legitimate threat against the protesters, despite being unable to prove Bryant’s claims about her intentions.

The jurors ruled that even saying the words in a harmless manner during a protest merited punishment, according to documents obtained by Reason magazine.

Bryant also filed a complaint with the school’s Office for Equal Opportunity and Civil Rights, in which she claimed Bettinger repeated the statement five times and had discriminated against her due to her race.

The EOCR office found that three of the five accusations could not be corroborated, and a report found Bryant most likely did not hear Bettinger’s comments firsthand after no eyewitnesses were able to corroborate her version of events.

Bettinger eventually graduated from UVA but with a permanent mark on her record, Reason reported, likely hindering her chances of getting into law school as she had dreamed.

“This whole situation has had a huge impact on my life,” she told Reason magazine. “The university has never had to answer for what their actions have done.”

Bettinger is said to be considering bringing a lawsuit against school officials, seeking to get her record cleared.

None of what she is claiming is actionable. Even if this woman DID say something, it is not actionable. That’s because she has free speech. But, since she lied to the school and the police, she should be kicked out of school and arrested.

Of course, she won’t be because she’s black and fat. Instead she was profiled in the Washington Post and being named to Ebony’s “Power 100” list last year. Oh, yeah, and she was given a sponsorship by Dove.

It’s OK though. She’s morbidly obese and celebrates it. She will be incapacitated in a couple of years.


About Time

According to the Daily Wire:

Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin on Sunday granted an “absolute pardon” to the father who was arrested at a school board meeting after the superintendent lied about his daughter’s rape by a skirt-wearing boy.

The pardon says that in June 2021, Scott Smith “exercised his constitutional right to attend a public meeting of the Loudoun County School Board to observe the proceedings, during which time a community member threatened to spread false and malicious information about Mr. Smith’s business with the intent to damage his reputation.”

“After an ensuing verbal confrontation, Scott Thomas Smith was charged with Obstruction of Justice and Disorderly Conduct,” and Smith was quickly convicted, even though an appeals court later disqualified the prosecutor due to concerns about “the integrity of the prosecution,” the pardon continues.

WHEREAS Scott Thomas Smith has been publicly and falsely accused of ‘domestic terrorism’ and ‘hate crimes’ for attempting to advocate for his daughter, a victim of sexual assault… I have decided it is just and appropriate to grant this ABSOLUTE PARDON that reflects Scott Thomas Smith’s factual innocence,” it concludes.

Smith’s story galvanized parents who were concerned that schools had sacrificed student safety and academic rigor for ideology. Youngkin’s pledge to be a voice for those parents helped usher him into office a month after The Daily Wire revealed Smith’s story.


What a Shock

According to Fox News:

Claims that “woke” Pentagon policies are fueling a massive U.S. military recruiting crisis are overblown – and the criticisms may only be making things worse, one expert said.

Peter Feaver, a Duke University professor and former member of the National Security Council during the Clinton and Bush administrations, said concerns over so-called “woke” policies have been blown out of proportion by politicians and critics. The main driver of the crisis are issues such as the current labor market and the shrinking pool of young Americans who are qualified to serve, he said.

“Because of drug use, obesity or health concerns, it’s just a smaller pool than it was even two years ago,” Feaver told Fox News Digital. “These are the big drivers.”

Feaver recently released a book titled “Thanks For Your Service,” which takes a deep dive into declining public confidence in the military. At the heart of that issue, Feaver said, is the politicization of the military by both parties. Feaver cited a Gallup poll released In July that showed public confidence in the military at 60%, noting that while that number compares favorably to other U.S. institutions, it represents a worrying trend for the military.

According to the poll, the 60% number has not been this low since 1997 and hasn’t been lower than 60% since 1988, when 58% of respondents expressed confidence in the military. Those lower numbers of the 1980s, which hovered between 50% and 63%, were during a particularly trying time in American foreign policy, Gallup noted, amid the Cold War and high-profile events such as the Iran hostage crisis.

Gallup recorded a number as high as 74% public confidence in the military as recently as 2018, but that number slid sharply in the wake of other high-profile events such as the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan. The drop has been most pronounced among independents, with only 55% expressing confidence in the military in Gallup’s most recent polling – down from 73% as recently as 2019.

“On the margins, that’s going to make recruiting a little more difficult,” Feaver said.

Feaver argued that much of the blame for declining public confidence can be pinned on politics, including claims that the military has become “woke.”

That point seemingly aligns with the stance of Army Secretary Christine Wormuth, who told reporters earlier this year that critics of the military are damaging its image and playing a role in its recruiting woes.

Yeah, wokeness is part of the reason people aren’t joining the military. People join the military to get away from this.

But it gets worse.

According to Fox News:

The White House is threatening to veto House Republican legislation that would give the military’s junior enlisted troops a 30% raise next year.

“If the president were presented with H.R. 4365, he would veto it.,” the White House said in a press release addressing the proposed legislation Monday.

At issue is the Pentagon spending bill advanced by the House Appropriations Committee earlier this year and scheduled to be voted on by the full House this week. 

It includes language that would ensure no member of the military would make less than the equivalent of $15 per hour during a 40-hour work week.

That seems reasonable, right? So why would the White House threaten veto the bill.

But the White House has pushed back against the bill, claiming in that release that its current language includes “partisan policy provisions with devastating consequences, including harming access to reproductive health care, threatening the health and safety of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex (LGBTQI+) Americans, endangering marriage equality, hindering critical climate change initiatives and preventing the administration from promoting diversity, equity and inclusion.”

Do you think this is going to fix the hiring crisis?


Just Wrong

According to the Post Millennial:

YouTube mom Ruby Franke accused her children of being abusers at a court hearing to determine where the children should be sheltered while she faces six charges of felony child abuse. 

According to the Daily Mail, the 41-year-old claimed that one of her children began watching porn at three years old and that one had sexually abused a younger sibling for years, and eventually abused other family members and children in the neighborhood.

She claims that the child confessed in May to abusing 20 different people but was unable to prove any of the allegations. Based on the accusations, the judge said the child “will need to be placed in a home with no other children.” 

At one moment during the hearing, an attorney in the public viewing area stood up and asked the judge to listen to the statement of one of the alleged victims’ mother who was in the courtroom. The judge said the details could be brought up at a later date when she denied the request. 

Ruby Franke’s husband, through his lawyer, informed the press that “He’s been instructed by the court not to comment to the press. Out of respect for the children involved we have no comment.”

Franke is the creator of a YouTube channel called “8 Passengers,” which made her known for her strict parenting style. She was arrested on August 30 for alleged child abuse after police found two juvenile children at her home who “appeared to be emaciated and malnourished with open wounds and duct tape around extremities.” 

The Santa Clara-Ivins Public Safety Department in Washington County, Utah, said it had received a call from a dispatcher of a juvenile asking for food and water. “The conditions were so severe that they were seen by Santa Clara-Ivins EM and transported to a local area hospital,” its statement read.

After she and her business partner Jodi Hildebrandt were arrested, Franke’s family appeared relieved. Her oldest daughter Shari, 20, said on social media, “Today has been a big day. Me and my family are so glad justice is being served.”


Go Get That Jab

According to the New York Post:

A baby boy’s eyes temporarily changed from dark brown to bright blue after receiving a common COVID-19 treatment.

The 6-month-old from Thailand was diagnosed with COVID-19 after suffering from a fever and a cough for a day, as detailed in a case published in the medical journal Frontiers in Pediatrics.

The infant was prescribed favipiravir, the antiviral treatment approved by the Thai Ministry of Public Health in 2022 for children with mild to moderate symptoms.

Shockingly, about 18 hours after beginning the medication, the child’s mother noticed that his dark brown eyes had turned bright blue.

The concerned mother contacted medical professionals and was instructed to stop the treatment immediately.

After about five days, the discoloration faded and the child’s cornea returned to its original color. The infant was examined by doctors, who found the cornea had cleared and lacked a bluish hue, while no blue pigment deposit was noted on the surface of the iris or the anterior lens capsule.



According to Breitbart:

R&B singer Akon is hyping his centrally planned community in Senegal, the country of his childhood, promising that every African American who invests with him will become a millionaire. In addition, he says if they collectively leave the U.S. for Africa, they could do real damage to the country that has oppressed them so much.

The 50-year-old artist, whose real name is Aliaune Damala Badara Thiam, was born in St. Louis, Missouri, and spent much of his childhood in Senegal. Consequently, he is a big believer in Africa.

“If you’re coming from America or Europe or elsewhere in the diaspora and you feel that you want to visit Africa, we want Senegal to be your first stop,” Akon said in 2020 of the reported $6 billion project.

The “Angel” singer is so sure about Africa that he has planned the construction of a new city in Senegal. He launched his settlement in 2020 with the cooperation of the country of Senegal with the hopes of creating a high-tech community with an economy based on his “Akoin” cryptocurrency.

Akon — who has been repeatedly accused of mistreating women and in 2008 was seen on video punching a female fan in the face — was recently heard selling his pan-African city idea on a podcast called REVOLT. During the show, the singer claimed that the African continent is the “holy grail” for black Americans because its people need “everything.”

He stated in a podcast:

“Africa is in a position where if African Americans take position now, every single African American would be a millionaire without even thinking twice because there’s nothing that’s not needed over there,” Akon said. “So, you guys come with the discipline, you guys come with the knowledge, you come with the resources.”

“We literally built America with our bare hands. Our labor, our sweat, our blood. But we’ve never — not only did we never get reparations for it, we never even got credit for it. We never even got recognized for it. And I think that’s what builds so much animosity and anger within our community itself, because we know how much our contribution is worth, but we never got our just due for what [sic] the contribution given.

“I mean, you name it. We’re leading in every single sector,” he told the podcast hosts. “Just imagine if we all just decided to just take all our bags, withdrew [sic] all our money, and go to Africa. Where would America be today? It would collapse overnight.”
