    One soldier was killed in the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince on Sunday, local media reported, when police officers shot up an army headquarters in a violent escalation of protests demanding better working conditions for police. Police officers exchanged gunfire with soldiers for hours after their protest halted near the national palace. It was unclear which side started firing first. Hundreds of supporters joined dozens of police officers, some in street clothes and others wearing police uniforms and face masks, as they advanced towards the palace in a protest demanding better pay. At least three police officers and one serviceman were wounded in the attack, which the defense ministry said was carried out by gunmen wearing masks. The situation remained tense as night fell.

    We should be quitting our jobs and going on welfare so we have the time to convert them as fast as they can come and breed.

    In one of many shocking videos circulating on Twitter, a recent clip of a doctor in Hunan that was widely shared by credible journalists covering the outbreak has caught our attention because it supports our theory - which has become increasingly widely adopted among the western press - that Chinese health officials are seriously undercounting the number of cases and deaths. 惊恐:湖南中医药大学第二附属医院的这位医生一天确诊50个冠状病毒患者,累到浑身湿透,没力气说话…… pic.twitter.com/kMh2Wl2Zl2 — 实话实说 (@jMcSVGx9oRuiEir) February 22, 2020 As the Washington Post wrote in a piece published earlier this week: "Chinese leaders and state media strike a coordinated note this week about the government’s ability to contain the outbreak, inconsistencies and sudden changes in official data are leaving experts — and journalists — struggling to plot meaningful trends, or even place any confidence in the figures coming from government." The WaPo reporters pointed to a clear case of manipulation where the authorities suppressed the true number of cases. Authorities in Hubei province reported good news Thursday: There were only 349 new coronavirus cases the previous day, the lowest tally in weeks. The bad - and puzzling - news? Wuhan, the capital of Hubei, reported 615 new cases all by itself. Hubei authorities have changed their criteria for counting cases three times over the past week or so. Hubei officials explained that they deducted cases that have not been confirmed through genetic tests from their total reported number of cases. Since this mistake was very, very public, we also reported on it.

    Pew Research released some interesting statistics highlighting Latino voters’ views on national political problems based on a survey they conducted on Latino adults this past December. Record numbers of Latinos — 32 million — will be voting in the 2020 general election. This exceeds the number of eligible black voters for the first time in history. According to the results, the majority of Hispanic voters favor more government involvement on issues ranging from minimum wage to gun control. 62 percent of registered voters identify or lean toward the Democrat Party, whereas 34 percent connect with or lean in the direction of the Republican Party. Several key findings stood out: Most Hispanic voters (71%) say the government should do more to solve problems, while 27% say government is doing too many things better left to businesses and individuals. The findings by Jens Manuel Krogstad, Mark Hugo Lopez and Abby Budiman revealed that 82 percent of Hispanics who identify with or lean Democrat “say the government should do more to solve problems, compared with 51% of those who affiliate with or lean toward the GOP.”

    When we commented earlier that the coronavirus pandemic means that the vast majority of Chinese small and medium enterprises (SMEs) have at most 2-3 months of cash left, a potentially catastrophic outcome that will not only crippled China's economy but its $40 trillion financial system, we summarized the circular quandary in which Beijing finds itself, to wit: ... unless China reboots its economy, it faces an economic shock the likes of which it has never seen before in modern times. Yet it can't reboot the economy unless it truly stops the viral pandemic, something it will never be able to do if it lies to the population that the pandemic is almost over in hopes of forcing people to get back to work. Hence the most diabolic Catch 22 for China's social and economic system, because whereas until now China could easily lie its way out of any problem, in this case lying will only make the underlying (viral pandemic) problem worse as sick people return to work, only to infect even more co-workers, forcing even more businesses to be quarantined. Shockingly (or perhaps not at all in light of China's tremendous human rights record), Beijing has picked output over life expectancy, and in a furious scramble to restart its economy, which as we showed earlier remains flatlined... ... according to most high-frequency metrics, it has been "advising" people to get back to work, even as new coronavirus cases are still coming in, in the process threatening to blow out the current epidemic with orders of magnitude more cases as places of employment become the new hubs of viral distribution. As Bloomberg picked up late on Sunday, following what we said earlier namely that "local governments around the country face a daunting question of whether to focus on staving off the virus or encourage factory reopenings" China's central and local governments are one again easing the criteria for factories to resume operations "as they walk a tightrope between containing a virus that has killed more than 2,400 people and preventing a slump in the world’s second-largest economy." This schizophrenic dilemma for a government which faces two equally terrible choices, was best summarized by the following two banners observed in China:

    Early results from Friday's nationwide Iran parliamentary elections show a landslide for conservative and hawkish anti-West candidates, with forecasts showing them taking more than two-thirds of the seats. Iranian state TV announced Sunday that hardliners won a landslide all 30 seats in Tehran, AP reports. Much of this conservative group is led by old guard supporters of ex-president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, in a victory seen as a major blow to 'reformist' President Hassan Rouhani and his supporters. US state-funded Radio Farda identifies "that least 15 former cabinet ministers and provincial governors close to former ultraconservative Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's have also won in the elections" — among them Habibollah Dahmardeh, Ebrahim Azizi, Abdolreza Mesri, Hamid Reza Hajibabai, and Ali Nikzad. And The Guardian notes of the early results that "The reformists, the largest grouping in the outgoing parliament, have been decisively beaten, with predictions showing them taking only 17 seats in the 290-strong parliament. The principalists – or conservatives – were on course to take around 200 seats, including all 30 seats in the capital, Tehran, previously a stronghold of the reformers." This after Iran's election watchdog, dubbed the Guardian Council, admitted to disqualifying thousands of candidates just days before the vote. The State Department has said this translated to over 7,000 candidates that were denied a place in Friday's parliamentary elections, for which the Trump administration leveled sanctions against key Iranian individuals on the Guardian Council. Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei still lambasted a "conspiracy" of external US and Israeli attempts at interference in the elections, but still praised the election as a "shining" victory affirming "the people's religious and revolutionary beliefs."

    In a shocking segment, MSNBC’s Katy Tur suggested that the FBI should be tracking young white men online to radicalize them, provide resources for creating explosives, and then arrest them. Tur was comparing young white men to ISIS terrorists in an interview with Frank Figliuzzi, the former Assistant Director for Counterintelligence at the FBI. Just MSNBC suggesting the FBI should be tracking young white men online to radicalize them, provide resources for creating explosives, and then arrest them. pic.twitter.com/6xq60MZNT1 — zyntrax (@zyntrax) February 23, 2020 “When you’re looking at ISIS or you’re looking at radical Islamic terrorism, I covered a number of stories where the FBI would track young kids or young men and they would talk to them online and say ‘you know, here’s how you build a bomb,’ or ‘here’s where you get your bomb making materials,’ and they track that person as that person radicalized and then arrested them before they could do anything bad,” Tur said. “Why is the same not being done for white extremists or is the same being done and we just don’t know about it?” Figliuzzi responded that it is “time to ask that question” and to “wrestle with it” because politics “does enter in.” He then mocked people who would defend the First Amendment and claim that this is the act of “thought police.” New Jersey’s annual Terrorism Threat Assessment report, released Friday, raised the threat of “white supremacists” higher than ISIS or al Qaeda. The network seems to believe that everyone who does not support Democrat establishment candidates is a dangerous racist — not only if you are right-wing, but even if they are leftists.

    If there was no SCOTUS there would be some other way to challenge its constitutionality. If they want to secede over the EC I welcome that and if they uprise they can be put down with prejudice for trying to conquer the rest of us.

    My concern with the concept they propose is that it opens the door for other religions to do the same when they are the majority. The Constitution is absolutely designed to protect each and every individual aside from the masses. It very well could be Sharia shoved on everyone by government because they opened a door they should not have in the first place. I actually just went and read a few days ago and the underlying sentiment of a "Christian Nation" is still there. The concept is not Constitutional and should never be because next year it could be Sharia.

    I understand them and you. I hope they have changed enough to be more palatable. But there are religions that the founders never thought would be an issue and that are bad for liberty and civilization, religious liberty has always been full of exceptions, we don't and shouldn't allow things like the Thugees here. The left wants to take religious liberty and use it to usher in anarchy followed by tyranny.

    They kind of screwed their own integrity with hypocrisy years ago. They have since changed their platform and reworded it, But when I was first looking into the "Constitution" party they absolutely believed in the first and freedom of Religion just as long as it was "a known form of CHRISTIANITY." That hit me like a ton of bricks. What a bunch of hypocritical lairs who do not deserve to call themselves the "Constitution" party. As I dug deeper I realized they wanted to form a nation of Christian soldiers and use government to do it against the will of the people, This is the very thing the Constitution protects each and every individual from on purpose. Something wrong with that picture and I think they should relinquish the title and label to those who truly believe in Constitutional individual and equal rights.

    They are smaller than the LP. I'll support them and watch to see if they grow, but there are plenty of likeminded people susceptible to our message in the GOP and we can get things done together while the Constitution Party grows. (or doesn't)
