Today is July 15 and I am Dennis Michael Lynch. Below are my opinions on the stories grabbing headlines this morning. I hope you share this briefing as doing so will make you the smartest person in the room, in my opinion.

1.Commanding general at Fort Rucker in Alabama orders ALL soldiers to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination if they are not wearing a face mask
Daily Mail – The commander of Fort Rucker in Alabama has ordered that all military personnel who are not vaccinated wear face masks while on base – and anyone seen without a mask must present their vaccination card.
Major General David J. Francis, who has commanded the base since 2019, updated the rules on Tuesday.
Anyone who is found to be violating the rules will be disciplined, although Francis leaves the punishment up to supervisors.
DML: Below is a snapshot of the provision within the document that orders the wearing of a mask. My take: The Army is going to put soldiers in harms way. They do so by totally ignoring the risks of wearing a mask for several hours each day. In my opinion the mask wearing is far more dangerous than the virus. It makes NO SENSE to cover one’s mouth and nose, common sense shows us that it prohibits a person to breathe freely.
2.Black Lives Matter blames US, praises Cuban regime, social media erupts
Fox News reports – Black Lives Matter faced fierce criticism late Wednesday after posting a statement that blasted the U.S. and praised Cuba’s government while the island was destabilized by historic protests and violent crackdowns.
The tweet blamed the U.S. embargo for the country’s instability and credited the Cuban government for historically granting “Black revolutionaries” asylum.
Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, was quick to rebuke the tweet: “”The extortionist ring known as the Black Lives Matter organization took a break today from shaking down corporations for millions & buying themselves mansions to share their support for the Communist regime in #Cuba.”

In Cuba, a repressive regime is firing on peaceful protesters.

The BLM tweet called for the U.S. to lift the sanctions that are “cruel and inhumane policy, instituted with the explicit intention of destabilizing the country and undermining Cubans’ right to choose their own government, is at the heart of Cuba’s current crisis.”
The people in #Cuba were chanting LIBERTAD but they say it was about food and COVID
So many of these national media outlets are such shameless liars https://t.co/oQ0vKQCKz4

DML: The unrest in Cuba is why Americans will never relinquish our guns. The only thing that stops us from being in the same communist situation is the Second Amendment. Make no mistake, if you didn’t have your guns the country would topple with government officials standing on the pile.
3.Chicago mass shootings fall just hours apart
At least 10 people were shot Wednesday during two separate mass shootings in different parts of Chicago, authorities said… There have been 1,688 shootings in Chicago this year through Sunday, an 11% percent jump from the same time frame last year, according to police figures.
Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown met with Biden earlier in the week and other law enforcement leaders across the nation to discuss strategies on how to combat the rise in violent crime many cities are grappling with.
Chicago had 284 murders as of Sunday.
DML: Where is Black Lives Matter making a statement? Why not point the finger at the black communities that can’t get the violence out of their system, both figuratively and literally. Look at the tweet from this black woman in response to news coverage of the shootings that are ongoing:
why y’all don’t mind y’all business and let chicago be .. any time another city start shooting shit up y’all all on chicago nuts

4.Sen. Ron Johnson Presses Biden to Monitor ‘Alarming’ Adverse Reactions to Coronavirus Vaccines
Breitbart– Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) sent a letter to the Joe Biden administration Tuesday, pressing them on their efforts to monitor adverse effects to the coronavirus vaccines, Breitbart News has learned exclusively.
Johnson sent the letter to National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director Francis Collins, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Rochelle Walensky, and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Acting Commissioner Janet Woodcock, asking about the agencies’ efforts to monitor and report about adverse reactions to the coronavirus vaccines through the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).
In his letter, Johnson noted that VAERS has recorded, in less than seven months, over 400,000 adverse events. This is 15 times greater than the weekly average prior to the coronavirus. Johnson noted that although the VAERS data does not prove causality, the VAERS statistics should be taken seriously. The senator wrote:
In October 2020, prior to any vaccine receiving an EUA, your agencies were expressing and conveying a great deal of confidence in your early warning vaccine safety systems like VAERS. Both CDC and FDA included VAERS as one of the primary passive surveillance tools for monitoring COVID-19 vaccine safety. CDC highlighted that VAERS covered the entire U.S. population and its ability to ‘rapidly detect safety signals’ and ‘detect rare adverse events.’ Now, nine months and 438,441 reported adverse events later, health care professionals are publicly downplaying the effectiveness and validity of these same systems. For example, on May 3, 2021, Dr. Paul Offit, who is a member of an FDA advisory committee, stated ‘So [VAERS is] a noisy system that frankly is more frightening than helpful.’ Which is it?
With the inclusion of foreign adverse events, VAERS is reporting 9,048 deaths, 26,818 hospitalizations, 56,915 emergency room visits, and 438,441 total reports. Those adverse events have been recorded over a time span of 29 weeks for an average of 15,000 per week – 15 times the weekly average prior to the COVID-19 vaccines.
An Economist/YouGov poll found recently that roughly a quarter of Americans had a “negative reaction” to the coronavirus vaccine. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) added a warning label to the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine over links to a rare neurological condition.
Johnson noted that he held a press conference with five women and one 13-year-old who suffered adverse effects with the coronavirus vaccine. He wrote:
One of the women had participated in the AstraZeneca clinical trials and the 13-year-old participated in the 15-year-old Pfizer clinical trial. As a requirement for trial participation, they were both healthy prior to vaccination. Their neurological injuries have been significant. At the time of the event, membership of their Facebook support groups totaled more than 2,000 individuals who suffered from similar post-vaccination neurological injuries. Within a few days of the press event, their group size had grown close to 5,000 members.
Big tech social media platforms subsequently censored their stories.
Twitter has described one mother’s description of her daughter’s adverse effects to the coronavirus vaccine as “misleading.” Facebook has also censored private groups and individuals posts about Americans’ alleged adverse effects with the coronavirus vaccine.
DML: Interesting experiment for you to try. Go to Google and type in: “negative effects of covid-19 vaccine”. You won’t see much more than articles that point you towards the positive sides of taking the vaccines. At the top, there is a statement from the CDC that claims the vaccines are safe. Thus, the search results support those of us who believe collusion exists between Google and the government has some legitimacy. Meanwhile, over at DuckDuckGo.com, a search engine that gives the results without Google’s biased filter, you’ll get no shortage of articles that reveal the side effects. Here are some screenshots:
5.Biden’s Nominees to Lead ICE and Border Patrol Signal Sharp Departure From Trump Era
NY TIMES:WASHINGTON — Ed Gonzalez, the sheriff of Harris County, in Texas, made ending a partnership with Immigration and Customs Enforcement one of his first decisions on the job because, he said, the program encouraged “illegal racial profiling.”
Chris Magnus, the police chief in Tucson, Ariz., has taken pride in his city’s boast of “being welcoming to immigrants.” It is also home to one of the busiest sectors of the Border Patrol, an agency that is rarely praised for its hospitality.
The two men have been tapped to run the federal government’s immigration enforcement agencies, an abrupt shift from rough-justice immigration chiefs in the Trump administration. If they are confirmed by the Senate — Sheriff Gonzalez at ICE and Chief Magnus at Customs and Border Protection — they would be responsible for delivering on President Biden’s promise to return compassion to the immigration system after the roundups, zero tolerance, wall-building and family separations of the last administration.
DML: Translation…. They will encourage illegal immigration to continue.
MY PARTING WORDS: The Delta variant is the new hot term for Dems and lefty media outlets. Everything these days is about the Delta variant, the headlines, warnings and alarming tweets won’t stop. “They” want you to get the vaccine — they want you to wear masks. I will talk about all these stories today on my podcast. I must tout my immune system, I have not been sick at all for two years. I will also speak about how so many people in my life have caught COVID, most of them all surviving.
As a side note, the 4 people who live in my house full time, one of them a school student, the other a 23-year-old with no shortage of friends, my wife and me — we all take DML CBD. We take it daily. Never a day without it. We travel. We meet people. Hug our loved ones, friends, and family. Guess what none of us have caught? Geez, I haven’t had as much as a head cold in two years. Same can be said for Mary. Boosting the immune system is a general rule of thumb for healthy living. Nobody in the media wants to talk about the immune system, but I do. No needle getting stuck in my arm. Thank God for my DML CBD Power and DML CBD Softgels. DMLcbd.com/power and DMLcbd.com/gel
