ESPN Exposes, Then Hides, Report on Abusive NBA Training Academies in China

The “woke” NBA – whose players (with few exceptions) wouldn’t stand for the Star-Spangled Banner but do stand human rights abuses in China – had a bumpy reopening last week following this year’s shutdown due to COVID-19.

So did one of its top broadcast partners, ESPN.

As Breitbart (aggregating reports from Outkick.com and The Athletic) reported on Sunday, NBA/ESPN saw its television ratings drop on Friday night following the numbers the league saw on the night of its return from dormancy on Thursday. The sports-starved American public apparently doesn’t have an appetite for millionaire athletes complaining about “systemic racism” while they kneel for the National Anthem and at the same time refuse to decry human rights abuses by the communist Chinese.

Meanwhile ESPN reported about the NBA’s involvement with a training academy in the Chinese province of Xinjiang, where millions of Uigher Muslims … Read More ➡

Misplaced Criticism of Stone Commutation

President Trump issued a commutation of Roger Stone’s sentence Friday shortly after the D. C. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected an emergency motion to delay Stone’s prison report date scheduled for July 14 to September 3.  

Stone, age 67, cited in his motion his medical condition and the 20 positive cases of Covid-19 among prisoners and staff at the prison facility in Jesup, Georgia, where only 45 were tested.  Stone also cited numerous cases where prisoners were either released early from prison or whose entry were delayed because of the pandemic, including attorney Michael Avenatti, Paul Manafort, and Michael Cohen. Two sex offenders and child pornographers were also released from prison.

“President Trump waited until the court proceedings were exhausted to issue the commutation after seeing that Stone was being treated differently from others and citing the corrupt Mueller investigation,” said Paul Kamenar, attorney for the National Legal and Policy … Read More ➡

NBA Promotes BLM While Remaining Silent on Chinese Communists

The open letter on Friday by Republican Sen. Josh Hawley, to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, exposed the hypocritical worldview of the leftists in the league and in the media.

That will likely be the best result, rather than seeing the Missouri Senator’s missive produce any meaningful change in how the league manages itself.

Hawley called out Silver and the NBA over its decision to permit its players – more than 80 percent of whom are black – to replace the names on the backs of their jerseys with messaging that for the most part fits the term “social justice.” That is, players can opine just as long as they don’t advocate for the welfare of police officers. Or for victims of Chinese oppression.

The NBA limited the messages players could display to a handful. Needless to say, none expressed support for anything other than … Read More ➡

Tech Giants Bankroll Extremists; Fuel False Narrative

Following the death of George Floyd at the hands of an out-of-control Minneapolis police officer, and demonstrations mixed with riots across the country, many American corporations weighed in with official statements or financial support for causes – or both.

Unfortunately the involvement of some put them more on the side of divisiveness than unity, at a time when the country needs the latter the most.

Ultimately many of the companies and/or their top-ranking officers got behind (again) the dubious narrative that there is “systemic racism” in law enforcement, and that minorities are disproportionately treated as suspects – or singled out for violent police tactics – more than whites. As Manhattan Institute fellow Heather Mac Donald and former US Attorney Andrew McCarthy explained earlier this week, citing very convincing statistics, the idea there is structural bias in policing is a myth.

“However sickening the video of Floyd’s … Read More ➡
