The New York Times announced its presidential endorsement this weekend, putting the weight of the failing fake news rag behind two female Democrat contenders – Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Sen. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren of Massachusetts.
The editorial board of the Times made the decision with two weeks to go before the Iowa caucus. They interviewed the nine top candidates over the past month before ultimately making their decision.
“There are legitimate questions about whether our democratic system is fundamentally broken. Our elections are getting less free and fair, Congress and the courts are increasingly partisan, foreign nations are flooding society with misinformation, a deluge of money flows through our politics. And the economic mobility that made the American dream possible is vanishing,” the Times ed board wrote.
“Both the radical and the realist models warrant serious consideration. If there were ever a time to be open to new ideas, it is now. If there were ever a time to seek stability, now is it,” they added. “That’s why we’re endorsing the most effective advocates for each approach. They are Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar.”
The Times extolled Warren as a “gifted storyteller” due to her ability to speak “elegantly of how the economic system is rigged against all but the wealthiest Americans.” They added that her “path to the nomination is challenging, but not hard to envision,” which isn’t something they could say about Klobuchar – who is an afterthought that has stayed at the bottom of the polls.
Regarding Klobuchar, the Times called her “a standard-bearer for the Democratic center.” They surmised that “the best chance to enact progressive plans could be under a Klobuchar administration” because she could unite the moderate and progressive wings of the party. Even though Klobuchar is notorious for treating her staff in a demeaning, undignified manner, they claim she “has acknowledged she’s a tough boss and pledged to do better.”
While the Times will act like their presidential endorsement matters, it is in actuality little more than a rubber-stamp for who they believe is the top Democrat contender. They have now endorsed a Democrat for President for a stunning 16 straight election cycles with their picks of Klobuchar and Warren.

“Ms. Klobuchar and Ms. Warren right now are the Democrats best equipped to lead that debate,” the Times concluded. “May the best woman win.”
Unfortunately for the corporate-bought Times, the far-left socialist candidate is rising in the polls despite their best efforts to stifle him. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) may be the nominee, and then the Democrats will have to run a communist in the hopes of defeating the President in this November’s election. Things are not boding well for the Democrat Party establishment as liberals radicalize in the age of Trump.
Reuters Calls Louisville Riots Where Cops Were Shot by Black Lives Matter Terrorists ‘Mostly Peaceful’
After cops were shot in Louisville during widespread Black Lives Matter rioting on Wednesday night, Reuters had the audacity to claim that the demonstrations were “mostly peaceful.”
Demonstrations in Louisville wore on past nightfall in defiance of a 9 p.m. curfew and remained mostly peaceful until several gunshots rang out in the midst of a skirmish between protesters and heavily armed police https://t.co/lvEd2XalpJ pic.twitter.com/L8GrPNrwCg

In the Reuters article linked in the tweet, the shooting of the police officers was buried in the article. Instead, editors focused on the race of the cops who returned fire to Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend after he shot at them while they were carrying out a lawful warrant at his home.
“Two white policemen who fired into the apartment of Breonna Taylor, a Black medical worker, will not be prosecuted for her death because their use of force was justified, and a third was charged with endangering her neighbors, Kentucky’s attorney general said on Wednesday,” they wrote.
Reuters buried the lead, opting to demonize the “heavily armed police” who sent the “crowd scurrying for cover,” even though it was the Black Lives Matter/ANTIFA terrorists who shot the law enforcement officers.
Big League Politics reported on the decision by Kentucky officials to charge one of the three officers involved in the shooting death of Taylor:
On September 23, 2020, Jefferson County Judge Annie O’Connell announced that fired detective Brett Hankinson will be indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment for his actions on the night of Breonna Taylor’s death.
Hankison had previously admitted to shooting blindly. Some of those shots were fired into neighboring apartments not into Breonna Taylor’s where her boyfriend had opened fire onto police.
Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly, the other two officers involved in a serving a search warrant on the night that Taylor was killed, did not receive any charges.
The city of Louisville was placed under a state of emergency on September 22, when city officials shutdown a significant portion of the city perimeter to traffic. The majority of administrative building and other businesses were boarded up prior to the decision. Louisville has been rocked by riots related to Taylor’s death in March. These riots have been occurring for over 100 days and have resulted in a number of deaths and heated confrontations with law enforcement.
Starting on the night of September 23, there will be a 72-hour curfew in Louisville. The curfew will not apply to people partaking in essential travel, which includes work-related purposes or medical attention. Kentucky National Guard members will be deployed to the city for the purpose of maintaining public order…
Conservatives and nationalists should make it a point to promote healthy debate, while establishing a baseline of public security, to ensure that the country does not spiral further out of control in such times of instability.
