Victor Davis Hanson on Patrisse Cullors: ‘Why Are They Woke?’

Hoover Institution scholar and Fox News contributor Victor Davis Hanson this week pondered how and why so many public figures — mainly on the political left — are caught in hypocrisy as they project sins and prejudices upon others that they themselves are guilty of.

He cites several examples, including Rhode Island Democrat Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, Barack and Michelle Obama, and President Joe Biden. But topping his list is recently dispatched Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors, who National Legal and Policy Center has exposed through media reports as a “Marxist” who happens to collect million-dollar homes in white neighborhoods while shielding her lavish spending from public view.

From Hanson’s commentary at American Greatness:

Wokeism was never really about racism, sexism, or other -isms. Instead, for some, it illustrated a psychological pathology of projection: fobbing one’s own concrete prejudices onto

First-time “artist” Hunter Biden is planning to put his work on the market with prices for single pieces going for up to $500,000. From an article in the Washington Free Beacon by Alana Goodman:

“This is clearly a way for [Hunter Biden] to earn money, a lot of money, without anybody knowing who’s paying him,” said Tom Anderson, director of the Government Integrity Project at the National Legal and Policy Center, an ethics watchdog group.

From the same article:

Anderson said the White House should publicly disclose the names of the buyers—even if the gallery doesn’t—and have the sales reviewed by ethics lawyers.

“Legally, [Biden] doesn’t have to disclose anything. But just for the office of the presidency, it’s just the right thing to do to be transparent and to let everybody know who’s paying for what,” said Anderson. “Why would you want … Read More ➡

Secret Buyers Get to Overpay for Hunter Biden’s Art

Hunter Biden has received some positive comments about the fruit of his new art career, which he has plied in multi-million dollar homes in Southern California, but his works are also expected to fetch as much as $500,000 — beyond what a normal fledgling artist would merit.

The scandal-plagued son of President Joe Biden has hooked up with Manhattan art dealer George Berges, who told Artnet that he plans to price Hunter’s works at an upcoming show at between $75,000 for works on paper, to a half-million dollars for large paintings.

Like the younger Biden, Berges — who has served prison time for assault with a deadly weapon — has ties to Chinese movers and shakers, according to a January article in the New York Post that first reported Hunter’s new art pursuits:

Berges, 44, regularly features works by Chinese artists and told a

In an interview for “Axios on HBO” over the weekend, Secretary of State Antony Blinken could not articulate any measures that the Biden administration would take against China if it refuses access to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which more than ever is now suspected of unleashing the COVID-19 pandemic on the world.

Asked by interviewer Mike Allen what kind of “teeth” the United States would put into pressuring the communist government if it denied information to investigators — as any person with common sense would expect, considering China has denied and redirected blame about the source of the coronavirus so far, including blaming the U.S. Army — Blinken essentially replied that China would do what’s good for them.

“At the end of the day,” Blinken said, “it’s profoundly in China’s interest to do this as well, because look, it suffered too in the outbreak … Read More ➡

The New York Post reported late yesterday that new revelations from Hunter Biden‘s laptop, which he abandoned at a Delaware repair shop, showed that his father Joe dined in Washington, DC, with his son’s business associates from Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine while he was vice president in April 2015.

The dinner meeting, scheduled to include the Bidens, Hunter’s business partner Devon Archer, and several foreign business associates, was held under the premise to — as Hunter explained in an email — “ostensibly to discuss food security.” But the meeting included officials shown previously to have direct ties to Hunter Biden and Archer, as the Post explained:

The next day, Hunter received an email from Vadym Pozharskyi, an executive of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, to thank him for introducing him to his father.

“Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and

Black Lives Matter PAC Paid $150K for ‘Disastrous’ Video; Production Company Headed by Father of Patrisse Cullors’ Child

Andrew Kerr has this in the Daily Caller:

Black Lives Matter PAC, which was founded and led by activist Patrisse Cullors, paid an art company run by the father of her only child nearly $150,000 to co-produce live election coverage, campaign and social media records show. Industry experts said it should have cost a fraction of that price.

From the same article:

“Besides paying Trap Heals almost $150,000 to produce an unprofessional video that high school students would be embarrassed to produce, the excessive payments by Cullors to Trap Heals that she co-chairs with the father of her child raises serious questions whether political contributions to BLM PAC were not only misspent but also enriched her personally,” said Paul Kamenar, counsel to the conservative watchdog group National Legal and Policy Center.

“NLPC filed a complaint last year with the Federal Election Commission against Representative Ilhan Omar for paying … Read More ➡
