Libertarian: Extremist Epidemiologists

A New York Times survey of 700 epidemiologists reveals that several believe it will never “be safe for normal life to resume,” Robby Soave notes at Reason. And in their own lives, “only 29 percent were willing to get a haircut, even though the most infamous case involving two hairstylists who had COVID-19 resulted in not a single infection among their 139 clients.

” And “for too long,” these specialists’ “pessimistic dictates have provided cover for politicians and government employees to make people’s lives miserable.” Notably, “schools are still closed in many major cities, even as new scientific information has generally found that resuming in-person education would be perfectly fine.” Especially “as the population becomes vaccinated, and we move past the crisis point of the pandemic,” each of us has the right “to dissent from the epidemiologists’ contentment with the way things are now.”

Conservative: Biden’s Great Reset Support

Joe Biden has been “relatively quiet” about whether he intends to support the Great Reset, an international plan “increasing the power of government through expansive new social programs like the Green New Deal and using vast regulatory schemes,” Justin Haskins worries at The Hill. But former Secretary of State John Kerry, whom Biden named special presidential envoy for climate, confirmed last month that the Biden administration will support the Great Reset, saying it “will happen with greater speed and with greater intensity than a lot of people might imagine.” Kerry’s admission makes it “crystal clear” that Biden’s team will try to use COVID-19 as an excuse to join radical causes, and “if they are successful, the country will never be the same.”

Iconoclast: Don’s Righteous Self-Pardon

The Week’s Matthew Walther declares: “I would be astonished if Donald Trump left office without a presidential pardon” to shield himself from Democratic attempts to “lock him up.” That he can do so is beyond doubt. Nothing in the Constitution bars a president from issuing a preemptive pardon for himself. And he’d be morally in the right, too: “The idea that Trump the television star and real-estate mogul would have found himself facing federal or state prosecution if he had never sought, much less won, the presidency beggars belief. Any such charges — and I fully expect them to come — will be politically motivated recrimination, spiteful acts of revenge.” No one should “pretend that he is in any sense obligated to take it lying down.

GOP senator: Don’t Blame Us for Payback

After President Trump’s 2016 victory, most Democrats vowed to “obstruct” nominees and “shatter precedent,” recalls Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) at The Wall Street Journal — and they followed through: While Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton “had nearly all of their Cabinet confirmed in January,” Trump had only three. Dems also tried to block 79 lower-level nominees in the first two years, while Trump’s “six predecessors combined faced the same obstruction only 18 times.” Sen. Chuck Schumer even voted against Elaine Chao as transportation secretary, though she had been thoroughly vetted for other posts. All that “hamstrung” Team Trump. If Republicans hold the Senate next year, they’ll “treat mainstream nominees fairly,” Barrasso promises. But those “out of the mainstream will face a gantlet.”

From the left: Bernie Betrays Himself

At a crucial moment in the Democratic primaries, deep-state spooks leaked to The Washington Post that Moscow supposedly wanted Bernie Sanders to win — a story calculated to damage the Vermont socialist. That, says Glenn Greenwald at his Substack blog, makes it all the more “jarring to see him on Thursday mock the idea that there is such a thing as ‘the deep state’ — the very entity that did so much to help sink his 2020 campaign. . . . It’s somewhat difficult to understand how one can wage a ‘revolution’ against the political establishment,” as Sanders claims he wants to do, “while delegitmizing the obviously true claim that establishment news outlets disseminate fake news against establishment enemies” at the deep state’s behest.

Former Celtics All Star Discredits Warriors Finals Victory in Boston

The Golden State Warriors are reigning champions, but one former Boston Celtics wing says his old team lost the series more than the Dubs won it.

Antoine Walker, a three-time All Star over the first seven years of his NBA career in Boston, didn’t just say the Celtics “gave” the Warriors the fourth title of the franchise’s modern dynasty. Walker also claimed that the Miami Heat, who the Celtics defeated in the Eastern Conference Finals, would have had a better shot at besting Golden State.

Walker made the comments during a Sunday, August 7, appearance on the Locked on Heat Podcast.

I think [the Heat] would have had a better shot. I don’t know if they could have scored enough to keep up with the Warriors, but defensively they would have been so stingy.

And that’s where the Heat, and the game plan, would have been a lot different than the Celtics. I hate to take away from Golden State, but if you go back and watch the film, Boston gave Golden State that championship.

Walker was also a member of the Heat for two seasons near the end of his career, including in 2005-06 when he won a championship ring as a significant contributor off the bench. Walker averaged 17.5 points, 7.7 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.2 steals per game over the course of his NBA tenure, per Basketball Reference.

Warriors’ Superstar Trio Dealt With Doubters Since First NBA Title

Getty(From left to right) Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors celebrate after winning their fourth NBA title in June, 2022.

For the Warriors — particularly the superstar trio of Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, all of whom are four-time champions — the questions and the lack of credit are nothing new.

Their first NBA Finals victory over LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2014-15 was questioned due to the injuries sustained by Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love, which limited Irving to one game and Love to zero during that series.

Criticism of Curry’s postseason performances began after the Dubs went 73-9, the best regular season record in league history, then lost in the Finals after leading the Cavs 3-1.

Next, Kevin Durant came to town and for the following three years, all bets were off. The Warriors were a bonafide super team unlike any that had come before, which also led to the roster construction being widely branded as simply unfair. The Dubs earned their way to three straight Finals appearances, winning back-to-back titles during the first two seasons. Golden State fell just shy of a three-peat the following year, after Durant and Thompson each suffered injuries in the Finals against the Toronto Raptors.

The collective message these criticisms sent to the Dubs’ Big 3 following that historic five-year run was, in summation: “You didn’t deserve the first title you got, and Durant won you the next two.”

Warriors Heard, Then Silenced Outside Noise During Dynasty Run

Now come Walker’s comments. And while Curry indirectly admitted that the Warriors hear what the outside world is saying via his post-title locker room exclamation of — “What are they gonna say now?” — the criticisms have never seemed to impact any actual winning in Golden State.

Thompson put his voice behind that sentiment after the Warriors defeated the Celtics in Game 6 of the NBA Finals at TD Garden in Boston.

“I saw it in the beginning of season. People called me crazy,” Thompson said, per The Athletic. “I said championship or bust, because I saw how we came out of the gate, 18-2. And playing just that Warriors brand of basketball that made us so successful, and then knowing I was going to be inserted in that, I knew we had a chance to do something special. And here we are.”
