INDEPENDENT
— White House answered fake reporter’s questions for weeks before she was revealed as a “Lego” video gamer. DC reporters frequently asked Jen Psaki questions on behalf of Kacey Montagu, who it turns out was not a real person – Nathan Place
https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/white-house-lego-fake-reporter-b1829659.html

(FROM THE ARTICLE: At a few recent White House press briefings, reporters have posed questions to Press Secretary Jen Psaki on behalf of a reporter named Kacey Montagu, who said she couldn’t be there due to Covid-19 precautions. In fact, the reason she couldn’t attend is much simpler: Ms Montagu doesn’t exist. According to a new report from Politico, Kacey Montagu is a pseudonym, most likely used by a gamer on the online platform ROBLOX. Within the platform, where players call themselves “Legos”, the so-called Ms Montagu has served as secretary of state in a government simulation called nUSA. But to DC reporters and to the White House itself, she’s become a real-life journalist. “I really wasn’t surprised she fooled these people,” another nUSA player, “pres. arnie vinick,” told Politico. “She’s been bragging about it for a while.” Since the Covid-19 pandemic began, it’s become common for White House reporters to ask questions on behalf of other journalists. That’s because to enable social distancing, the White House has drastically reduced the number of people allowed in the briefing room – from 49 to 14. To get their questions in, the reporters left out submit their questions digitally or through a courteous pool reporter. And into that loophole stepped Kacey Montagu. The mysterious gamer frequently emailed pool reporters with questions – usually after their first pool report of the day came out, so she knew who they were. In case anyone looked her up before relaying her questions, she set up fake Twitter and LinkedIn accounts, naming herself chief political correspondent for White House News or White House Schedule, neither of which exists.)

— Biden’s racial equity agenda targets ‘exclusionary’ single-family neighborhoods – Kery Murakami
(DIERSEN: Many in my Wheaton precinct believe that the south side of Roosevelt Road between the Prairie Path and Main Street is targeted for low-income apartment buildings.)
https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2021/apr/28/biden-racial-equity-agenda-targets-exclusionary-si/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: President Biden wants to transform the character of many American cities and suburbs by building more apartment buildings in quiet and frequently disproportionately White neighborhoods of single-family homes. The Biden administration sees remnants of America’s segregationist past in what it calls “exclusionary” zoning laws, which allow only single-family homes in large swaths of cities and suburbs. As part of a racial equity agenda the president is pursuing in his massive infrastructure plan, Mr. Biden would send federal grants to cities if they eliminate those zoning laws and allow more lower-income people, often minorities, in areas that typically have better schools and fewer social ills that plague poor, inner-city communities.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: When Aten, executive director of the Humanitarian Disaster Institute at Wheaton College, began to urge his fellow evangelicals to get vaccinated, however, things got ugly. “How’s your Monday going?” he tweeted on April 27. “Mine started with having to file a police report in response to the increasing number of threats I’m getting for encouraging white evangelicals to get vaccinated against COVID-19.” Aten, who teaches at an evangelical college and identifies as an evangelical, told Religion News Service he’d filed a report with the sheriff’s office in DuPage County, Illinois, where he lives, after getting an email claiming his work on vaccines was “punishable by death.” The email was part of a pattern of emails and calls from people angry about Aten’s work helping Christian groups and churches respond to the COVID-19 vaccine. The threats intensified after he spoke to The New York Times about the need for evangelicals to be vaccinated.)

— The United States of 2 Americas – John Mills
(DIERSEN: To get those who are religious, conservative, and/or Republican to leave Illinois, leave DuPage County, leave Milton Township, and leave Wheaton, Democrats and RINOs do everything that they can to get Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, Wheaton, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, and Wheaton Downtown Association to promote a) dependency on government, b) dependency on charity, c) LGBTQ, d) abortion, d) mass/illegal immigration, e) booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, f) abolition of the First and Second Amendments, g) patronage, h) political affiliation discrimination, i) reverse discrimination, and j) age discrimination.)
https://www.theepochtimes.com/the-united-states-of-two-americas_3782214.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A part of this blue/red separation is the manifest “Digital Apartheid” that is being applied by the blue side to the red side to create two social media systems. This Digital Apartheid is pervasive and driven by the new, vicious, lockstep, “social justice” mantra that has taken over the automatons who lead U.S. social media. We are experiencing an unprecedented shakedown by groups such as Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Antifa who broadcast through their relentless bullhorn of social media and old media. There are now two business systems in America—blue and red. Many of the businesses that lead major market sectors have now revealed themselves to be de-facto thought police to enforce Social Justice. MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell is the poster child of this, as he has been targeted for elimination by the self-appointed high priests of “wokism.” We’re also finding out there are two financial systems in America, as those with capital now act as the gatekeepers of who receives capital and who is excluded. Bank of America has become “Bank of who I decide to allow access to the capital system.” That’s a far cry from the intent of its founder, who wanted to make sure all had access. The modern bank staff has now become an appendage of the virtue-signaling synchronized chorus. There are now two media systems in America. The Hollywood award shows are now a Roman circus of self-loathing, lecturing, and virtue signaling. Few are watching these award shows—in fact, few are watching legacy media as ratings collapse. It’s curious from an agnostic business perspective how CNN even survives at this point in time. Somehow the citizen’s pocketbook is being fleeced by corporations and advertisers who recycle ad revenue through “woke” media to keep them alive when it’s patently obvious the viewership has imploded—but that’s the beauty of the new era of crony capitalism (which is a transition phase to socialism). The citizens of our nation have consciously or unconsciously chosen sides. If you’re angry at yourself for not being woke enough and have righteous virtue-signal signs in your yard lauding BLM, you’re likely on the blue side. If the drivel of virtue signaling makes no sense to you, you’re probably on the red side.)

The stench of hypocrisy rises like swamp gas, but never quite high enough to eclipse the smell of socio-political moribundity. Woke corporatists turn household names like Coca Cola into catchphrases denoting white guilt. As replacement theory gains traction, Marxist extremists sow racial dissension and gear up for what they believe is a long overdue reckoning. The rest of the “racist” citizenry battens down the hatches.)
