Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich warned Wednesday that America is not facing a normal election this November because the Democratic Party is “owned by the left” and by “people who are financed by George Soros.”
“All of these Democrats are now basically owned by the left. They are not going to pick any fights. They are owned by people who are financed by George Soros,” Gingrich said during an interview with Fox & Friends.
Gingrich added that the political division in America represents “a war between two worlds,” adding that “It’s not a normal presidential election.”
The former speaker noted that local leaders and district attorneys in Democrat-controlled cities including Minneapolis, Portland, Seattle and Chicago are financed by George Soros’ Open Society, and have “surrendered to criminals” and embraced “pro-criminal” policies that have led to chaos in those cities.

A radical new budget proposal by the Austin, Texas, City Council calls for a controlled demolition of the police department’s current headquarters in a symbolic gesture towards Black Lives Matter and defund police protesters.
“We should expedite the demolition of the APD Headquarters by directing the City Manager to move all remaining APD staff out of the existing headquarters building and into other underutilized city facilities,” reads the proposal submitted Monday by Council Member Jimmy Flannigan.
The existing APD property, prime real estate situated in the heart of Austin, would then be used to highlight black inequity and support the black community, the proposal states.
“That property… should be dedicated to addressing historic economic inequities in the black community and supporting future black community economic success,” states Flannigan’s proposal. “A community-led effort should be initiated to determine the specifics on how such a valuable property could be leveraged, and possibly serve as a gateway to East Austin.”
The Arkansas Republican senator Tom Cotton has called the enslavement of millions of African people “the necessary evil upon which the union was built”.
Cotton, widely seen as a possible presidential candidate in 2024, made the comment in an interview with the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette published on Sunday.
He was speaking in support of legislation he introduced on Thursday that aims to prohibit use of federal funds to teach the 1619 Project, an initiative from the New York Times that reframes US history around August 1619 and the arrival of slave ships on American shores for the first time.
The Chinese state-run news outlet, China Global Television Network (CGTN), has released a propaganda video claiming COVID-19 is a test populist leaders like President Trump failed.
The video, titled Can COVID-19 Beat Populism?, was released on Tuesday.
The communist-produced piece claims Trump’s handling of the virus is yet “another straw on the camel’s back to expose [Trump’s] hollow politics.”
Since the focus of the video is populism, Brazil’s Jair Bolsonaro and Britain’s Boris Johnson were also targeted.
The state-sponsored film claims leaders like Trump, Bolsonaro and Johnson, “are experts at manipulating people’s feelings,” but that “they are incompetent at solving real threats and problems.”
“The current once-in-a-century pandemic is a test and most of the populist leaders have failed it,” the narrator states.
After the results of a recent Fox News poll showed that Americans under the age of 30 were more likely than other age groups to describe the Founding Fathers as villains, Campus Reform asked students to weigh in.
“They accomplished a lot of things, but a lot of them were not very good,” one student said.
“Villains,” another answered when asked if he viewed the Founding Fathers as heroes or villains. “They owned slaves.”
Campus Reform also asked students if the Founding Fathers did any good, which most had trouble answering.
“No, I’m sorry, no,” one student said when asked if anything came to mind.
Oregon officials have claimed a side. They’ve chosen the violent rioters of antifa and Black Lives Matter over the civil rights interests of citizens of the City of Portland.
The state of Oregon and the ACLU have filed lawsuits demanding the Trump administration from arresting and questioning the violent antifa and Black Lives Matter terrorists who have conducted nightly riots for the last 50 nights.
Riven by the more than six weeks of nightly rioting, the Trump administration sent federal police from several different agencies to defend the federal courthouse in downtown Portland. In one wild night, federal police officers from the Department of Homeland Security, Border Patrol, and other agencies battled antifa terrorists lobbing IEDs, rocks, and bottles and shining lasers in the eyes of officers. Police battled for six hours to keep the terrorists from getting inside the glass door they’d earlier shattered.
Reportedly starting July 14, the federal officers have stopped and questioned suspected black bloc-attired antifa militants in the middle of the night. They attempted to set up yet another “autonomous zone” right across the street from the federal courthouse.
A Portland Black Lives Matter organizer announced the group’s intention to “abolish” the “United States as we know it” during a rally outside the federal courthouse.
The self-described “afro-indigenous non-binary local organizer” named Lilith Sinclair admitted to supporters outside the Hatfield Federal Courthouse what the mainstream media is keen to ignore: that Black Lives Matter is not about racial equality or police reform, but the total abolition of America itself.
“I’m an afro-indigenous non-binary local organizer here in Portland,” Sinclair told the audience. “Organizing for the abolition of not just the militarized police state but also the United States as we know it.”

Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., told “The Story” Wednesday that law enforcement reform legislation announced earlier this week by Reps. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass, of Massachusetts “is clearly a serious effort to compete in the Woke Olympics.
“I would give it 9.7,” Kennedy, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, told host Trace Gallagher. “As an American who feels gratitude, not hatred for my country, the only way I know how to improve their bill is with the shredder.”
The legislation, known as the BREATHE Act, calls for federal funding of local police and federal agencies to be reduced and the difference diverted to pay for health care, education, environmental, and housing programs. It would also eliminate federal programs and agencies used to finance Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the controversial Department of Defense 1033 program, which transfers excess military equipment to civilian law enforcement agencies.
