I’ve got a lot of things in the news to cover for this week: the predictable Biden choice for VP, Kamala Harris and gun control, Biden’s nutty mask mandate and wearing masks on Zoom alone in your house (??!), the historic Israel-UAE agreement, update on Durham investigation, update on the Gen. Michael Flynn case, MSM Watch and how they slip in lies in news stories, male-only draft may to go to the Supreme Court, and a very funny mashup video going viral with Ben Shapiro taking on a famous rapper who has been blinded to reality by only listening to mainstream media. Also–why culture is so influential on politics; those who make songs are more influential than those who make laws.

In politics fight, Breitbart knew culture is key
. . . . Andrew Breitbart knew instinctively, as people in Washington and most other places did not, that movies, television programs, and popular music send out deeply political messages every hour of every day. They shape the culture, and then the culture shapes politics. Influence those films and TV shows and songs, and you’ll eventually influence politics.
The Left had known that for generations, but on the Right, so many people in politics thought only about politics. To Breitbart, that was folly. “The people who have money, every four years at the last possible second, are told, ‘You need to give millions of dollars, because these four counties in Ohio are going to determine the election,’” Breitbart told the National Policy Council in October 2009. “I am saying, why didn’t we invest 20 years ago in a movie studio in Hollywood, why didn’t we invest in creating television shows, why didn’t we create institutions that would reflect and affirm that which is good about America?” . . . .
Change the culture and you’ll change politics.
