The Texas case got thrown out late on Friday. – The lawsuit brought before the Supreme Court by Texas AG Ken Paxton and 17 other state AGs was rejected by 7 of the 9 members of the Court late on Friday. I discuss the implications of that in a separate story this morning.
We will miss having Tulsi Gabbard in congress. – Yes, she’s a Democrat and yes, I don’t agree with her on all that much, but this is a woman of great courage and conviction who is not afraid to stray from the Democrat Party’s daily script.
On Friday, Cong. Gabbard – who sadly did not run for re-election this year – introduced legislation that would ban biological males from participating in women’s sports nationwide. Sadly for girl and women athletes, this is something that has been allowed in an increasing number of school districts and colleges across the country. Gabbard’s bill is a clear effort to protect the rights of actual, genetic women and their right to compete against human beings who possess similar genetic makeup, and not against biological males who only “identify” as women.
Naturally, Gabbard has been smeared by those on the left. This tweet by The Hill is sadly typical of the absurd slant the corrupt media has put on the story:

Thus, in the eyes of the insane left and its media toadies, this effort to protect the rights of girls and women – which the political left formerly supported – now becomes an “anti-transgender” bill. Up is down, black is white, right is wrong. That is the American left today.
So long, congresswoman. Real, thinking Americans are sad to see you go.
He’s against de-funding the police before he plans to be for it. – China Joe Potato Head Biden got caught on tape saying the quiet part out loud again. In a recording of a virtual event with Democrat Party activists, Biden can be heard advising them all to stop saying “de-fund the police,” but only until after the January 5 Georgia senatorial runoff elections have been held. After that, hey, no problemo, apparently.
Biden is also heard on the recording admitting that President Trump “beat the hell out of us all over the country” despite his own claims to be the legitimate president-elect. Biden supporters will claim this was just another example of their declining, elderly placeholder resorting to hyperbole, but anyone paying real attention will know it’s just another example of him saying the quiet part out loud.
From a story at PJMedia:
In a recording leaked to The Intercept, former Vice President Biden appeared to blame the “defund the police” movement for the Democrats’ shellacking down-ballot in the 2020 elections, and urged liberal civil rights leaders not to put public pressure on his incoming administration regarding police reform until after the Georgia Senate runoff elections in January.
“I also don’t think we should get too far ahead ourselves on dealing with police reform in that, because they’ve already labeled as being ‘defund the police’ anything we put forward in terms of the organizational structure to change policing — which I promise you, will occur. Promise you.”
Biden can be heard telling left-wing civil rights leaders in the recording, “Just think to yourself and give me advice whether we should do that before January 5, because that’s how they beat the living hell out of us across the country… I just raise it with you to think about. How much do we push between now and January 5—we need those two seats— about police reform? But I guarantee you there will be a full-blown commission. I guarantee you it’s a major, major, major element…we can go very far.”
Successful efforts to defund the police at the local have resulted in disasters nationwide. But Joe Biden himself has publicly expressed support for defunding the police. During an interview with activist Ady Barkan, Biden said, “Yes, absolutely,” when asked if they both could agree that “we can redirect some of the [police] funding?”
Equally of interest, China Joe then goes on to lecture the radical leftists who make up the vast majority of the Democrat voter base today on the limits of executive authority:
So there’s some things that I’m going to be able to do by executive order. I’m not going to hesitate to do it, but what I’m not going to do is I’m not going to do what used to — Vanita [Gupta], you probably used to get angry with me during the debates, when you’d have some of the people you were supporting saying, ‘On Day 1, I’m gonna have an executive order to do this!’ Not within the constitutional authority. I am not going to violate the Constitution. Executive authority that my progressive friends talk about is way beyond the bounds. And as one of you said, maybe it was you, Reverend Al [Sharpton], whether it’s far left or far right, there is a Constitution. It’s our only hope. Our only hope and the way to deal with it is, where I have executive authority, I will use it to undo every single damn thing this guy has done by executive authority, but I’m not going to exercise executive authority where it’s a question, where I can come along and say, ‘I can do away with assault weapons.’ There’s no executive authority to do away that. And no one has fought harder to get rid of assault weapons than me, me, but you can’t do it by executive order. We do that, next guy comes along and says, Well, guess what? By executive order, I guess everybody can have machine guns again. So we gotta be careful.
Boy, oh, boy. That is not going to sit well with the Bernie Sanders and AOC’s of the world. If he does ultimately assume the presidency, China Joe is going to find that his honeymoon lasts about 15 seconds before all hell starts to come at him from members of his own party.
Hey, he can’t do any worse than Comrade De Blasio. – Looks like Andrew Yang is probably going to run for Mayor of New York next year.
— Just the News (@JustTheNews) December 11, 2020
From the story at JustTheNews:
Entrepreneur and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang is making plans to run for New York City mayor.
Yang, whose presidential campaign centered on a universal basic income for every American, has been telling city leaders that he intends to run in next year’s election, according to The New York Times.
He is not expected to announce his bid until at least next month and has already met with a top City Council member, the newspaper reports. Yang declined Thursday to comment to The Times about the purported bid.
Hey, it’s New York City, where a guy like Andrew Yang is actually considered to be a “moderate.” If he does end up running, he would almost certainly be the least repugnant, anti-American radical among the Democrat candidates in the field. We should all wish him the best of luck in his pursuit.
That is all.
