WATCH: Seeing Trump Greet American Prisoners From North Korea is Pure Awesomeness

This is simply fantastic!

Earlier this week the news broke that President Donald Trump had managed to secure the release of three American prisoners in North Korea and that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was on his way back with them at the time he published the announcement.

This historic feat was part of the demands Trump made for meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, along with agreeing to denuclearize the Korean peninsula.

Just finding out these three folks would be coming back home where they belonged was fantastic news, but actually getting to see video footage of the president greeting them pushes this whole thing into pure awesomeness.

The prisoners arrived at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland sometime early Wednesday morning. Vice President Pence was the first to arrive, with the president and first lady showing up several minutes later followed by National Security Adviser John Bolton and Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Secretary of State Pompeo’s plane arrived first, followed by the plane carrying the freed citizens several minutes later. The president and first lady boarded the plane and spoke with them before walking out of the plane together to greet the press.

“This is a special night for these three really great people,” Trump told reporters. “Frankly we didn’t think this was going to happen … it’s a very important thing to all of us to be able to get these three great people out.”

Trump thanked North Korean leader Kim Jong-un for releasing the hostages, adding, “I really think he wants to do something and bring his country into the real world.”

“I think this will be a very big success,” Trump continued. “It’s never been taken this far, there’s never been a relationship like this. Some great things can happen, and that’s what we hope.”

The president is constantly criticized by the media for just about everything he says or does, but these same folk just simply refuse to give him credit when he accomplishes something amazing, like all the stuff he’s done with North Korea.

These three men are now free, back home, in the loving arms of their families, all because of the effort that this president and his administration put into actually getting things done instead of a bunch of nonsense political posturing.

And this is just the tip of the iceberg. Trump’s meeting with North Korean leadership to discuss denuclearization is a historic accomplishment that should earn the man a Nobel Peace Prize.

Let’s hope the media can actually swallow their pride and give Trump props for getting these folks home.

Businesses Should Require Vax Proof from Customers, Says NIH Director

This is simply unconscionable.

There have long been fears that this sort of discrimination was on the horizon, as the willingly unvaccinated become second-class citizens right here in the United States. With only about half of the US population fully vaccinated, (and largely by their own accord), herd immunity looks to be some time away yet.  Nearly 20% more of the population will need to wind up with COVID antibodies in order for public health officials to consider the pandemic to be waning, and a maximum pressure campaign is taking shape throughout a number of levels of government. During an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Dr. Frances Collins used his position as the Director of the National Institutes of Health to pressure businesses around the nation to enact strict vaccine-proof restrictions. Anchor Jake Tapper said, “Some businesses are going a step further and requiring proof of vaccinations not just for employees, but even for customers in some cases. Audience members for broadway plays and musicals need to be vaccinated. Some bars in San Francisco and D.C. are requiring proof of vaccinations. Do you think as a public health measure it would be good for more businesses to require vaccine credentials in order to have vaccinated customers?” His answer was astonishing. Collins said, “As a public health person who wants to see this pandemic end, yes. I think anything we can do to encourage reluctant folks to get vaccinated because they’ll want to be part of these public events, that’s a good thing. I’m delighted to see employers like Disney and Walmart coming out and asking their staff to be vaccinated. I’m glad to see the president has said all federal employees. I oversee NIH. With 40,000 people need to get vaccinated or if they’re not to get regular testing which is inconvenient. All of…

Unrepentant YouTube Decides to Suspend Mainstream News Channel Over ‘Misinformation’

The barons of the Information Revolution are no less corrupt than those of the Industrial Revolution before them.

There are concerns that the barons of the Information Revolution, much like the barons of the Industrial Revolution, are exploiting their content producers at an unsustainable clip, and creating a very dangerous bottleneck in the world of free speech. Given just how much of the internet’s traffic flows through just a few sites, it is imperative that we keep a keen eye on what platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are doing.  They are the new gatekeepers of nearly the entire breadth of current information, and if they were to choose to keep us in the dark on any particular issue, it would be quite easy for them to do so. That’s why the latest news from YouTube is so terrifying. YouTube said Sunday it had barred Sky News Australia from uploading new content for one week, citing concerns about Covid-19 misinformation. The move comes after a review of posts uploaded by the Rupert Murdoch-owned TV channel, which has a substantial online presence. “We have clear and established Covid-19 medical misinformation policies… to prevent the spread of Covid-19 misinformation that could cause real-world harm,” a YouTube statement said. With 1.86 million YouTube subscribers, the channel — which is owned by a subsidiary of Murdoch’s News Corp — has a conservative following well beyond Australia. The mainstream media and the mainstream social networks haven’t always gotten their COVD info right, either, which makes their declarations regarding “misinformation” all the more laughable. Early on in the pandemic, these platforms pushed back against the possibility that the virus itself may have been a part of some sort of lab leak, even going so far as to censor any such discussion.  Over a year later, and as health experts began to suggest this yes, this was truly a possibility, the premature nature of…
