Monday News Roundup: Corrupt Media Hides the ID of Ashlii Babbitt’s Killer as Mad Maxine Runs Wild in MN

Mad Maxine at it again. – I write at length about Maxine Waters’ crossing of state lines to foment street violence and rioting in Minnesota – and why she will face no consequences for doing so – in another piece this morning. Go read it.

From the story at Daily Wire:

Backlash continued to grow against Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters (CA) on Sunday over remarks that she made late Saturday night where she encouraged activists to “get more confrontational” on “the street” if Derek Chauvin is not convicted of murdering George Floyd.

“We’re looking for a guilty verdict. We’re looking for a guilty verdict. And we’re looking to see if all of this [inaudible] that took place and has been taking place after they saw what happened to George Floyd,” Waters said. “If nothing does not happen, then we know that we’ve got to not only stay in the street, but we’ve got to fight for justice, but I am very hopeful and I hope that we’re going to get a verdict that will say guilty, guilty, guilty. And if we don’t, we cannot go away.”

The New York Post Editorial Board said that Waters was “trying to create a Civil War” and that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) “should strip her of her committee assignments and move for a vote to remove Waters from office.”

Notable elected officials and political commentators also slammed Waters over her remarks:

  • Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX): “Democrats actively encouraging riots & violence. They want to tear us apart.” “‘We gotta stay on the street,’ Waters was recorded saying, adding that protesters needed ‘to get more confrontational’ & they should ignore the curfew in place.”
  • Matt Walsh, podcast host: “Maxine Waters is trying to intimidate a jury to influence the outcome of a murder trial. Every elected Republican in the country should be calling for her immediate arrest and removal from congress.”
  • Steven Crowder, podcast host: “If Trump was removed from Twitter AND Facebook for ‘inciting violence’ then Maxine Waters needs to be federally charged and impeached.”
  • Bryan Dean Wright, Democrat and former CIA officer: “Maxine Waters is a threat to the Republic.”
  • Gerry Callahan, podcast host: “Donald Trump was impeached and banned from all social media platforms for less.”
  • Kurt Schlichter, attorney and columnist: “This is an insurrection.”
  • Tim Pool, podcast host: “Maxine Waters says that Chauvin premeditated the murder of George Floyd and that if Chauvin is not convicted [of] a crime he wasn’t charged with they should get ‘more confrontational[.]’ More confrontational than burning down buildings?”

[End]

Utterly despicable and dangerous woman.

Here’s one direct consequence of Waters’ depraved actions:

From the story at Breitbart:

The Minnesota National Guard said some of its members came under fire in northern Minneapolis on Sunday morning.

@MNNationalGuard and @MinneapolisPD neighborhood security team was fired upon early Sunday morning in a drive-by shooting near Penn Avenue and Broadway in Minneapolis,” the guard tweeted just before 11:00 a.m.:

https://twitter.com/MNNationalGuard/status/1383808427432943617

You can be sure that no one in the Nazi-style corporate media establishment will focus any attention to Waters’ insurrectionist actions, and that she will face no disciplinary consequences from Nancy Pelosi, such as expulsion or even having her committee assignments removed. As a prominent member of one of the Democrat Party’s favored minorities, Waters is in fact bullet-proof from any such consequences.

Hey, remember all of those fawning tweets from the corrupt White House Press Corps about “light and shadow” at the White House during the Trump years? – Yeah, neither do I.

But, rather than doing a little reporting about a member of congress crossing state lines to foment street violence and insurrection, that’s exactly what Kelly O’Donnell, White House Correspondent for NBC News, was doing on Sunday:

You just could never make this stuff up, folks.

Hey, remember how the White House Press Corps used to focus on what Donald Trump had for lunch with visiting dignitaries? – Yeah, that never happened, either.

But that’s was Ms. O’Donnell was doing on Saturday rather than reporting about, say, the crisis at the border or the fact that Biden had just snubbed the Prime Minister of Japan a couple of hours before this shot was taken:

Just a complete dereliction of duty on the part of our Nazi-style propaganda media.

Here are just a couple of questions any real “journalist” would ask about this photograph:

  • How are Biden and the Prime Minister of Japan planning to eat those burgers and fries through those masks? By osmosis?
  • Even more to the point, everyone in that room has no doubt been vaccinated against COVID. Why are they wearing those masks in the first place, other than for rank propaganda purposes?

You can be absolutely, 100% certain that not a single member of the White House “press corps” posed either question to anyone.

Speaking of our corrupt, Nazi-style propaganda media… – Every member of the White House press corps no doubt knows the identity of the Capitol Policeman who shot and killed unarmed Air Force veteran Ashlii Babbitt in the halls of the Capitol Building on January 6, but, as Kurt Schlichter points out in his Sunday column, they are all refusing in unison to reveal his name.

From the piece at Townhall.com:

Is it too much to ask to know the name of the federal government employee who, on our behalf, shot an unarmed veteran who was, at worst, trespassing in a public building? Apparently, it is, since no one in our glorious, licensed, and neutered regime media seems to want to tell us. They know. They all know. They just don’t want you to know.

We know the identity of the incompetent cop who shot the guy with a warrant (for carrying a concealed weapon without permit, which is not even a crime in nearly two dozen free states – racist Democrat gun control laws helped kill him). All we know about Wyatt Twerp, who shot the super-scary Q person for climbing through a window, is that the DoJ thinks it’s A-OK to cap misdemeanor suspects if they oppose the ruling caste and clear him. The dummy who can’t tell her taser from her Glock got charged though, even though it’s absolutely clear she was stupid rather than malicious. Two systems of justice – gee, how could that go wrong?

There are sleuths online claiming various different people are the shooter – I don’t know for sure who it is, and I won’t accuse someone of this act until I do. But our garbage ruling class should tell us who killed this woman in our name. And it was in our name – this was a federal cop, and we have been told he was among the brave Spartans who resisted the onslaught of the good-natured guy in Viking horns and the rest of the characters who walked in through the open doors into the Capitol in history’s least severe insurrection ever. After months of being informed by the smart, honest Neros of modern America that this minor imbroglio – I helped suppress the Democrat icon’s Maxine Waters-inspired LA Riots, so save your breathless hyperbole about riots for the sissies and the saps – was the greatest threat to our democracy in the history of ever, you would think they would want to glorify and commemorate the brave hero who shot the unarmed woman who was, you know, surrounded by other cops.

He should be proud, right? He took out that perilous threat to America. He’s all man. Where’s his parade? He’s a hero, right?

Yes, according to the members of the lib tuffies battalion on Twitter, who were positively turgid over the idea that the fed fuzz blasted this terrifying “terrorist” – they absolutely love the idea of the regime killing her, and it’s not much of a stretch to imagine their giddy delight at the idea of some uniformed minions of the establishment killing you too. What’s a few dead kulaks among friends?

It’s no surprise that leftists celebrate the homicide of dissenting Americans – after all, for them, there’s nothing wrong with shooting as long as the right people get shot. And people like you are the right people.

[End]

Go read the rest. You’ll be glad you did. And even angrier than you already are.

That is all.

Maxine Waters Crosses State Lines to Foment Violence, and Will Face no Consequences

If only Nancy Pelosi possessed a soul… – Of course, she’s a human ghoul, utterly devoid of anything resembling a soul or conscience. But if she had either, Nancy Pelosi would take to the floor of the House of Representatives as Speaker of that body today and move for the expulsion of Maxine Waters from its membership.

Why? Because Maxine Waters was once again fomenting street violence and riots on Saturday. No, she wasn’t in her home district in California, where she hasn’t even resided for over a decade now. Instead, she was in Minnesota, traveling there in advance of the decision in the trial of Derek Chauvin, the Minneapolis police officer who initially appeared to be responsible for the death of George Floyd last summer. But that was before all the evidence in the case was in.

Subsequent evidence revealed that Mr. Floyd was in fact a drug addict who most likely died due to an overdose while he was being restrained by Officer Chauvin. Chauvin was restraining Floyd as he had been trained to do when a potentially violent suspect was violently resisting arrest, as video evidence showed Floyd clearly doing. As a result, it seems likely that Chauvin will be acquitted, at least of the most serious charges arrayed against him by the corrupt Minnesota prosecutors in the case, and Mad Maxine isn’t having any of that. Because, hey, that would violate the Democrat/media narrative of this entire episode.

So, she went to Brooklyn Center, Minnesota Saturday to help stir up the locals – and of course, the hundreds of BLM/Antifa activists on the scene from other states – urging them to engage in full-fledged insurrection in the event of even a partial acquittal. Just a few hours after she engaged in her rabble-rousing action, two National Guard members were almost murdered in a drive-by shooting. There can be little doubt of the cause and effect relationship between the two events.

On Sunday, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, one of the few stalwart congressional Republicans willing to do his job and speak out forcefully against such anti-American behavior, hit back at Waters’ despicable actions:

From the story at the Daily Mail:

Ted Cruz slams Maxine Waters for ‘encouraging riots and violence’ after she called on BLM protesters to get ‘more confrontational’ – hours before two National Guardsmen were injured in drive-by shooting in Minneapolis

  • Maxine Waters appeared at the Brooklyn Center protests on Saturday 
  • Waters told protesters to ignore the curfew: ‘We gotta stay on the street’
  • She said that the activists should ‘get more confrontational’
  • Hours later, two Guardsmen in Minneapolis were injured in a drive-by shooting 
  • Senator Ted Cruz led the chorus of condemnation of her comments
  • Other Republican members of Congress spoke out against her words 
  • Marjorie Taylor Greene called Waters ‘a danger to our society’ 
  • Waters said she wants to see Derek Chauvin receive a guilty verdict in his trial
  • Closing arguments in the trial for the killing of George Floyd begin on Monday    

Senator Ted Cruz has accused Democrats of ‘actively encouraging riots & violence’ after California Representative Maxine Waters joined protesters in Minnesota on Saturday night, and urged the crowd to ‘get more confrontational’.

Cruz and others slammed Waters for her remarks in Minneapolis on Saturday night — made just hours before two National Guardsmen tasked with keeping the peace there were injured in a drive-by shooting.

Waters traveled to Minneapolis the weekend before closing arguments in the trial of Derek Chauvin, charged with murdering George Floyd on May 25. She also spoke amid protests in response to the killing last week of Daunte Wright, a black 20-year-old shot and killed at a traffic stop by a white police officer, Kimberly Potter.

‘I am not happy that we have talked about police reform for so long,’ Waters said, demanding a guilty verdict in the Chauvin trial and adding: ‘If we don’t [get it], we cannot go away. We’ve got to stay on the street.’

She added that protesters needed ‘get more active, more confrontational’ and they should ignore the curfew in place.

Hours after Waters’ passionate speech, a Minnesota National Guard and Minneapolis police team were fired upon in a drive-by shooting.

[End]

Later on Sunday, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy urged Pelosi to act, and said he would take action if she doesn’t:

But there is very little McCarthy would be able to do. Even though he controls a sizable minority that is just 5 votes short of a majority, the hive-mind, lockstep behavior of the demi-religious cult that is the Democrat Party ensures he would never be able to find even 5 Dems who possess the intellectual integrity to move against one of their own.

As I’ve pointed out many times, this country faces two true existential threats: The corrupt, Nazi-style propaganda media establishment, and the national Democrat Party. The coming inevitable refusal by Pelosi to take action against one of her members who traveled across state lines to foment street violence and rioting clearly proves the threat the Democrats represent. The coming inevitable refusal by the Nazi-style propaganda media establishment to hound Pelosi into action – as they would with McCarthy if any Republican member of the House engaged in such behavior – proves the threat the media represents.

They’ve been trying to destroy the American Republic for a century now, and working together, they are well on their way to succeeding.

That is all.

Today’s Required Reading: Two Amazing Letters Everyone Should Read

Your required reading for Sunday, April 18, 2021 includes two letters written by ordinary people who have chosen to speak up and say extraordinary things. The first letter is from a man living in India addressed to Joe Biden’s “Climate Czar” or whatever he’s calling him, John Kerry. The letter calls Kerry out for his habit of jetting all over the earth in a carbon-spewing private jet while lecturing the 300 million Indian citizens who live in abject squalor and burn dung in order to heat their homes an coke their food about their duty to avoid using fossil fuels. It’s absolutely fantastic.

The second is from the parent who is removing his child from a swanky private school in New York City that she has attended for seven years. The reason? The school is indoctrinating its students with critical race theory, a theory that teaches that all white people are racists and evil by nature. Another fantastic read.

First, here’s an excerpt from the letter to John Kerry, written by Vijay Jayaraj  and published at Townhall.com:

Dear Mr. Kerry,

I write to you from India, a country you visited recently. Before I share my thoughts about some of your policy recommendations to my nation, I would like to mention a small note: When you ran for President in 2004, your pictures appeared in the local newspapers in India. Sitting in a remote, underdeveloped part of southern India, as a young high school student I wanted you to win that year. You did not, but I was hopeful that you would make it big in politics, and you did! Congrats!

However, 16 years later, I cannot help but send you this letter of disappointment. You see, back in 2004, when I was supporting you to win, India was way behind in the development index. Electricity, especially, was a luxury. 350 million people in India were without electricity. The U.S population in 2004 was around 292 million. So, literally, you had more people in India without electricity than the entire population of the U.S. Imagine young students like me being unable to study for our exams because power blackouts after sunset were more predictable than water supply in our taps!

Thankfully, India, like China, and a few other developing nations, understood that energy poverty can only be alleviated through embracing abundant and affordable energy resources—both domestically and from foreign shores. Hence, India muscled its way through in its fight against energy poverty. Coal, oil, and gas together alleviated energy poverty. By 2017, India began producing surplus electricity, and by 2019 it electrified all of its villages. Today, we are an energy superpower, and much of the credit goes to the thousands of tireless workers at Coal India Ltd, the state electricity authorities, liquified petroleum gas (LPG) cooking gas distributors, and various organizations involved in the extraction and refining of oil and gas products.

Mr. Kerry, you have asked India to reduce its dependency on these life-saving fossil fuels! But your policy recommendations to my country of 1.3 billion people threaten the energy security and livelihood of my people. More than 70 percent of our electricity comes from coal, and fossil fuels dominate our energy mix. They are forecasted continue doing so at least until 2047. Sadly, 300 million in our country still live in poverty, and many more do not have uninterrupted electricity. A vast majority of my people still use unsafe, highly polluting solid cooking fuels like wood and dung and have yet to transition to clean sources like LPG.

Next, here’s an excerpt from the letter addressed to the leaders and parents of the Brearly all-girl’s school in Manhattan, written by Andrew Guttman and published this morning at TheConservativeTreehouse.com:

Dear Fellow Brearley Parents, 

Our family recently made the decision not to reenroll our daughter at Brearley for the 2021-22 school year. She has been at Brearley for seven years, beginning in kindergarten. In short, we no longer believe that Brearley’s administration and Board of Trustees have any of our children’s best interests at heart. Moreover, we no longer have confidence that our daughter will receive the quality of education necessary to further her development into a critically thinking, responsible, enlightened, and civic minded adult. I write to you, as a fellow parent, to share our reasons for leaving the Brearley community but also to urge you to act before the damage to the school, to its community, and to your own child’s education is irreparable. 

It cannot be stated strongly enough that Brearley’s obsession with race must stop. It should be abundantly clear to any thinking parent that Brearley has completely lost its way. The administration and the Board of Trustees have displayed a cowardly and appalling lack of leadership by appeasing an anti-intellectual, illiberal mob, and then allowing the school to be captured by that same mob. What follows are my own personal views on Brearley’s antiracism initiatives, but these are just a handful of the criticisms that I know other parents have expressed. 

I object to the view that I should be judged by the color of my skin. I cannot tolerate a school that not only judges my daughter by the color of her skin, but encourages and instructs her to prejudge others by theirs. By viewing every element of education, every aspect of history, and every facet of society through the lens of skin color and race, we are desecrating the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and utterly violating the movement for which such civil rights leaders believed, fought, and died. 

I object to the charge of systemic racism in this country, and at our school. Systemic racism, properly understood, is segregated schools and separate lunch counters. It is the interning of Japanese and the exterminating of Jews. Systemic racism is unequivocally not a small number of isolated incidences over a period of decades. Ask any girl, of any race, if they have ever experienced insults from friends, have ever felt slighted by teachers or have ever suffered the occasional injustice from a school at which they have spent up to 13 years of their life, and you are bound to hear grievances, some petty, some not. We have not had systemic racism against Blacks in this country since the civil rights reforms of the 1960s, a period of more than 50 years. To state otherwise is a flat-out misrepresentation of our country’s history and adds no understanding to any of today’s societal issues. If anything, longstanding and widespread policies such as affirmative action, point in precisely the opposite direction.

Sunday News Roundup: Bill Maher’s Epic COVID Monologue

I missed this Saturday, but it’s something everyone in America should be required to watch. – Bill Maher is mainly just another leftist propagandist talking head on your TV screen, but every once in a while he strays from the prevailing Democrat/media narrative, engages his own brain and speaks actual logic and facts about some topic or another. Whenever that happens, it’s generally worth listening to.

Friday night, he went off on liberals and the rank disinformation they have bought into regarding COVID-19. He also excoriated the corrupt propaganda media for being guilty of systematically pounding that disinformation into the easily manipulated liberal hive mind in this country.

It’s truly epic stuff. Watch it:

Here’s a transcript for those of you who still like to read stuff:

And finally new rule, don’t spin me when it comes to my health. Over the past year, the COVID pandemic has prompted the medical establishment, the media, and the government to take a scared straight approach to getting the public to comply with their recommendations. Well, I’m from a different school. Give it to me straight doc, because in the long run that always works better than you can’t handle the truth.

Now I get it: doctors tell people lies because they don’t trust you to finish the antibiotics. And media, well, I think we all know if it bleeds, it leads. The more they can get you to stay inside and watch their panic porn, the higher the ratings.

Researchers at Dartmouth built a database recently monitoring the COVID coverage of the major news outlets across the world and found that while other countries mix the good news in with the bad, the U.S. national media reported almost 90% bad news. Even as things were getting better, the reporting remained negative.

And politicians, they lie because it’s their nature to cover their ass. They don’t get blamed if things goes badly and also to keep in practice.

But when all of our sources for medical information have an agenda to spin us, yeah, you wind up with a badly misinformed population, including on the left. Liberals often mock the Republican misinformation bubble, which of course is very real. Ask anyone who works at Hillary’s pizza parlor. And we do know conservatives have some loopy ideas about COVID like the third of Republicans who believe it couldn’t be spread by someone showing no symptoms.

But what about liberals? You know, the ‘high information by the science’ people. In a recent Gallup survey, Democrats did much worse than Republicans in getting the right answer to the fundamental question: what are the chances that someone who gets COVID will need to be hospitalized? The answer is between one and 5%. 41% of Democrats thought it was over 50%, another 28% put the chances at 20 to 49.

So almost 70% of Democrats are wildly off on this key question and also have a greatly exaggerated view of the danger of COVID too and the mortality rate among children. All of which explains why today, the states with the highest share of schools that are still closed are all blue states. So if the right wing media bubble has to own things like climate change denial, shouldn’t liberal media have to answer for how did your audience wind up believing such a bunch of crap about COVID?

A new report in the Atlantic says the media won’t stop putting pictures of the beach on stories about COVID even though it’s looking increasingly like the beach is the best place to avoid it. Sunlight is the best disinfectant and vitamin D is the key to a robust immune system. Texas lifted its COVID restrictions recently and their infection rates went down in part because of people getting outside to let the sun and wind do their thing.

But to many liberals, that can’t be right because Texas and beach loving Florida have Republican governors, but life is complicated. I’ve read that the governor of Florida reads. I know we like to think of Florida as only middle school teachers on bath salts having sex with their students in front of an alligator but apparently the governor is also a voracious consumer of the scientific literature. And maybe that’s why he protected his most vulnerable population – the elderly – way better than did the governor of New York.

Those are just facts. I know it’s irresponsible of me to say them.

Look, here’s what I’m saying, I don’t want politics mixed in with my medical decisions. And now that everything is politics, that’s all we do. If their side says COVID is nothing, our side has to say it’s everything.

Trump said it would go away like a miracle. And we said it was World War Z. Trump said we should ingest household disinfectants and we laughed as we should of course. And then it turned out 19% of America was literally drenching the fruit in Clorox. And now of course, we find out that all that paranoia about surfaces was bullshit anyway even though we spent hours and hours wiping our knobs with Lysol. And if you’ve ever wiped your knob with Lysol, I think you know.

Now go home and wash the mail. If you lie to people, even for a very good cause you lose their trust. I think a lot of people… Thank you. I think a lot of people died because of Trump’s incompetence. And I think a lot of people died because talking about obesity had become a third rail in America.

I know you’ve heard me pound this fried drumstick before, but since I last mentioned it, a stunning statistic was reported: 78% of those hospitalized, ventilated, or dead from COVID have been overweight. It is the key piece of the puzzle – by far the most pertinent factor – but you dare not speak its name. Imagine how many lives could have been saved if there had been some national campaign similar to Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” program with the urgency of the pandemic behind it, if the media and the doctors had made a point to keep saying, ‘but there’s something you can do.’

But we’ll never know because they never did. Because the last thing you want to do is say something insensitive. We would literally rather die. Instead, we were told to lock down. Unfortunately the killer was already in the house and her name is Little Debbie.

[End]

That is great stuff right there. Naturally, liberals across social media responded not by taking a step back and engaging in just a moment of introspection, but by attacking Maher and impugning his personal integrity.

Because of course that is what they did: That inability – nay, abject refusal – to engage in just a little, tiny bit of introspection is how they became so dangerously ignorant collectively in the first place. It is not just what they do, it is literally who they are.

And that is perhaps the single main reason why our country sits on the edge today.

That is all.

Saturday News Roundup: Biden Snubs Japan as DeSantis Tells us the Truth About Vaccines and Fauci

Get used to more and more of this. – Yesterday, the ostensible President of the United States of America was unable to travel down two flights of stairs from his bedroom to the East Wing of the White House to greet the Prime Minister of one of our country’s most important allies, Japan. Why? Because the frail, elderly, clearly declining, clearly impaired Sock Puppet-in-Chief was, in the words of a paid liar, “feeling under the weather.”

Oh. You don’t say.

Thus, instead of being greeted by the supposedly duly elected POTUS – which 50% of the country remains in doubt about, explaining why there is still a wall and hundreds of National Guard troops surrounding the Capitol Building – PM Yoshihide Suga was greeted by a 50 year-old with the mind of a sorority social organizer whose political career began as the escort for Willie Brown:

To make this snub of an important ally even more reprehensible, the Sock Puppet-in-Chief felt good enough just a few hours later to let his handlers dress him and come down from his bedroom to make a statement about the mass killing in Indianapolis.

Make no mistake about this: Japan will take this snub as a huge insult, and there will be a price to be paid for it. It will be subtle in nature, but it will be costly.

Thanks, Democrats.

Speaking of that Indianapolis shooter… – the only reason China Joe was willing to make a statement on the killings at the Indianapolis Airport Fedex Facility was because law enforcement officials there finally, hours after the man had killed himself and his body had been taken into custody, identified him as being a 19 year-old white male. Had he been identified as a radical muslim – like the guy who ran his car into the wall surrounding the Capitol Building two weeks ago, killing a Capitol police officer – or a member of one of the Democrat Party’s preferred minorities, Biden would no doubt have been too “under the weather” to say anything at all about it.

A former employee at the facility, the shooter was … wait for it … known to local police as a result of having been named in multiple criminal complaints, because of course he was. That’s always the case with such shootings, isn’t it? He was also known to be suffering from … wait for it … mental illness, because of course he was. Again, that’s always the case with such shootings, especially when they involve a white male.

We haven’t yet been told that he was also under surveillance by the FBI, but isn’t it inevitable that we find out that was  the case in the days to come? It will no doubt be quietly noted in the bowels of a story on Page C-19 of the Washington Post, but it will be noted. Because it always is in incidents like this one.

I’m not going to publish his name here, because I make a practice of not doing that. But since he’s a white male, if you Google “Indianapolis shooter” you will find dozens of stories by the various corrupt propaganda outlets coming up on Page 1 of your search results. Because of course you would – that’s always the case with such shootings in which the killer is identified by law enforcement as a white male.

Why, it’s almost like there’s a longstanding, highly predictable pattern here or something.

Now, let’s go to some good news. – CNN has lost half its audience since Donald J. Trump was run out of office by our new ruling cabal:

Isn’t that just delightful?

From the story at RedState.com:

CNN, the network that was already bringing up the rear, just continues to bleed viewers since Biden took office, and it’s gotten so bad that we can now say it no longer has the majority of its previous viewer count in certain demographics.

The network that made President Donald Trump’s failure its primary concern had very little to offer once Joe Biden took control of the White House, making it a one-trick pony that lost its luster after the trick was pulled off. Now, according to Fox News, it’s come down in multiple categories so fast that it’s left a crater in the Earth:

The liberal network spent years attacking former President Donald Trump and the network thrived during his final days in office amid a brief post-election spike. CNN averaged 2.2 million viewers during the first three weeks of 2021, but it has averaged just one million viewers since Biden took office, a staggering decline of 54 percent.

CNN’s struggles are even more prominent among the key advertising demographic of adults age 25-54, with a drop of 60 percent. It averaged 617,000 demo viewers from Dec. 28 through Inauguration Day but only 244,000 since Biden entered the White House.

When analyzed by prime-time hosts, it just gets embarrassing:

CNN’s liberal primetime hosts Anderson Cooper, Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon haven’t been able to keep their audiences under the new administration, either.

CNN averaged 3.1 million viewers from 8-11 p.m. from Dec. 28 through Inauguration Day but only 1.4 million since for a whopping 55-percent decline. Over the same time period, CNN’s primetime lineup lost 63 percent of its viewers among the crucial demo.

If we’re being honest, CNN likely deserves this. Their overt hypocrisy, consistent falsehoods, and lack of ideological diversity made them a network worth turning off. On top of that, Project Veritas recently released a series of videos showing a technical director of CNN’s, Charlie Chester, admitting to CNN purposefully using fear and sensationalism to manipulate viewers into doing what they want them to, including vote out Donald Trump.

[End]

So, after a brief post-election period during which it was besting both MSNBC and Fox News in most of the ratings, CNN is back to its traditional position, running a poor third place in the ratings race. Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of Nazi-style propaganda merchants.

Facts matter to Ron DeSantis. – Speaking of Nazi-style propaganda, it is good to finally see a handful of Republican elected officials finally speaking out in opposition to the COVID-19 propaganda that The Little Menace to Society Anthony Fauci has spent the last year infesting our society with. That handful of GOP stalwarts include exactly the Republicans you would expect to be leading the charge: Senator Rand Paul, Senator Ted Cruz, Congressman Jim Jordan, Governor Kristi Noem and Governor Ron DeSantis, who had this to say yesterday about how we should behave after having been vaccinated:

GOV. DESANTIS: “If you get a vaccine… you’re immune and so act immune. If you tell people the opposite… that it’s not going to change anything, then what’s the point of going through it?”

Exactly.

All Texans should note who is not included on this list of Republican truth-telling stalwarts willing to speak up about Fauci’s serial disinformation: Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and milquetoast Texas Sen. John Cornyn. Abbott has made some good decisions recently in lifting his useless mask mandate after months of failure, but he has been about 7 steps behind Noem and DeSantis throughout the past year. Cornyn is just another RINO who spends the entirety of his days following Mitch McConnell around like a puppy on a leash. He thinks he’s going to succeed McConnell when Cocaine Mitch retires, and has been positioning himself to do so for years now.

Boy, is he going to be disappointed when North Dakota Senator John Thune, another useless RINO, ends up being the anointed minority leader instead.

But kudos to Noem and DeSantis and Paul and Jordan and Cruz for being willing to lead the charge in the truth-telling about Fauci and his rank propaganda. It’s just a shame they don’t have more help from within the GOP.

That is all.

The True Meaning of Tax Day

Guest piece by Gregg Updike

April 15 is another (traditional) day of infamy for the 200 or so million Americans who must make their annual pilgrimage to Washington, DC, the black hole where a large portion of their hard work and earnings get sent every year when they bow to alter of the federal government and reconcile their earnings from the previous year. Last year Covid delayed the legal confiscation of wealth untill the summer; this year with the Democrats in charge, they gave us their version of a tax break; it is not due until May 17th of this year.

Many Americans who have overpaid their taxes for the entire year by having too much money withheld every payday think they are actually getting free money from the government when they qualify for a refund. Many feel warm and fuzzy about it. Withholding came into vogue during World War II. It was called a convenience to the taxpayer – he/she didn’t have to bother to write a monthly check to the government – but it was really a convenience to the government to set up the automatic pay system.

In 1819 Chief Justice John Marshall’s Supreme Court ruled in McCulloch v. Maryland for the federal government (to allow the federal government to collect taxes) and concluded “the power to tax is the power to destroy”. He used the “elastic clause” (Article 1 Section 8 – the Necessary and Proper” Clause) in the constitution to grant the federal government the power to ultimately tax the people as it saw fit. It was the beginning of the slippery slope that ultimately led to the Sixteenth Amendment which set up the federal income tax system we all know and love today. And most states and many municipalities have piled on with their own versions.

Isn’t it amazing how many government programs continue to exist that virtually everyone hates? The federal income tax was sold to America just over a hundred years ago based on the problem of the national debt which was approaching 3 billion dollars in 1912. Three billion 1912 dollars is about 80 billion in today’s dollars – if only our national debt was 80 billion… Yet with the federal income tax, which was supposed to fix the deficit problem, we now have a national debt of 28 TRILLION dollars! Notice how tax increases NEVER reduce the national debt. It takes about three thousand dollars from every American to generate a trillion dollars; that means EVERY man woman and child in today’s America is on the hook for 84 thousand dollars. Clearly our debt will never be paid and that alone will cause the collapse or the US dollar and our standard of living. And that is the plan of the people who really run the country.

There is no way an income or any other new or increased tax will ever balance our budget, let alone pay off or debt. In fact, it has been proven that when taxes are increased, economic activity decreases, and LESS revenue is received; when taxes are reduced the opposite occurs and revenue increases – see the Laffer curve.

So, since the income tax didn’t and won’t ever cure the deficit, one must ask what is the purpose of the income and all the other taxes; especially since we can apparently spend trillions on Covid relief and apparently can’t do anything without at least a trillion-dollar price tag attached to it? For that matter, since the FED can print money out of whole cloth, why to we need any taxes at all? Just print and borrow money forever…

The real purpose of taxes is to control the people and their economic activity – nothing more and nothing less. Every dollar taken from you is an infringement upon YOUR LIBERTY. Why else does virtually every pundit and economic “expert” decry and demonize GOP led tax reductions when they know tax cuts INCREASE revenue to the US Treasury and every Democratic tax INCREASE reduces revenue to the government? Ostensibly taxes are supposed to fund the government, right? They do not.

Covid restrictions were and are just another way for dictatorial governments at all levels to control the population; outright voter fraud is another. Marshall might well have added CONTROL to his power to tax is the power to destroy quote.

Things to think about when you write that check to the US Treasury. Be thankful we are not getting all the government we are paying for.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: Glenn Greenwald Reveals how the CIA Owns America’s Corrupt Media

This is a great way to start: Watch as Jim Jordan takes The Little Menace to Society Anthony Fauci apart lie by lie at a congressional hearing on Thursday:

Stellar.

This is what the Nazi-style propaganda purveyors at CBS thinks is real news. – CBS doesn’t think Fauci’s serial lying, conflicting statements, and just plain making stuff up on the fly amounts to news, but boy, let a cousin walk in between Prince William and Harry-the-lesser, and you got a real scoop!

You just cannot make this stuff up, folks. You seriously can’t.

Ok, so, I guess Climate Change is “infrastructure” now. – Why not? Everything else is according to our ruling Democrats.

In keeping with the current Democrat/Media narratives that a) it’s time to ramp up the fright tactics about “climate change” even more than they already have, and b) it’s time to use the COVID pandemic as the justification for implementing full-on brutish, Venezuela-style fascist socialism in this country, the evil minions who infest Time Magazine yesterday decided to combine both into a single overarching Super-Narrative:

Man, that’s some real fright stuff right there.

From the story at Time:

n her third day as the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Marcia Fudge phoned the White House. She had taken over an agency with a role to play addressing a range of crises as the lack of affordable housing in U.S. cities has left hundreds of thousands homeless and millions more in financial straits. She connected with Joe Biden’s climate team. Fudge and Gina McCarthy, Biden’s national climate adviser, talked about addressing climate change and the affordable-­housing shortage at the same time. Three weeks later, the Administration announced plans to provide for more than 1 million resilient and energy-­efficient housing units. “People are actually, from every agency, knocking on our doors,” says McCarthy, “wondering how they can be part of what is essentially a hopeful future.”

From her perch in the West Wing, McCarthy has been charged by Biden with overseeing a dramatic shift in the way the U.S. pursues action on climate change. Instead of turning to a select few environment-­focused agencies to make climate policy, McCarthy and her office are working to infuse climate considerations into everything the Administration does. The task force she runs includes everyone from the Secretary of Defense, who is evaluating the climate threat to national security, to the Treasury Secretary, who is working to stem the risk that climate change poses to the financial system.

The approach “affords us the opportunity to be more than greenhouse-gas accountants,” says Ali Zaidi, McCarthy’s deputy. “We can tackle the breadth of the climate challenge and the opportunity if we map the intersections with housing policy, and the intersection with racial justice, and the intersection with public health.”

For decades, the idea that climate change touches everything has grown behind the scenes. Leaders from small island countries have pleaded with the rest of the world to notice how climate change has begun to uproot their lives, in areas from health care to schooling. Social scientists have crunched the data, illuminating how climate change will ripple across society, contributing to a surge in migration, reduced productivity and a spike in crime. And advocates and thinkers have proposed everything from a conscious move to economic degrowth to eco-capitalism to make climate the government’s driving force.

[End]

Man, this is some real sterling propaganda right there. Can you say Pulitzer Prize, here we come? Hell, why not a Nobel Peace Prize for narrative-shaping such as this.

Somewhere, the entire staffs of the New York Times and Washington Post are turning green with envy.

*sigh*

It was all lies. Because of course it was. – Hey, remember how, during the midst of the presidential campaign last year, the CIA leaked allegations that the evil Russians were taking out bounties on the heads of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan? Remember how China Joe and Kamala pounded President Trump on the campaign trail for not doing anything to punish Russia and Vladimir Putin over those stories? Remember how CNN and MSNBC and the NY Times and The WaPo and the rest of the corrupt, Nazi-style propaganda media pounded on these leaked allegations night after night, day after day?

Yeah, good times, right?

Yesterday, the CIA admitted it was all just made up. Never happened:

From the story at The Daily Beast:

It was a blockbuster story about Russia’s return to the imperial “Great Game” in Afghanistan. The Kremlin had spread money around the longtime central Asian battlefield for militants to kill remaining U.S. forces. It sparked a massive outcry from Democrats and their #resistance amplifiers about the treasonous Russian puppet in the White House whose admiration for Vladimir Putin had endangered American troops.

But on Thursday, the Biden administration announced that U.S. intelligence only had “low to moderate” confidence in the story after all. Translated from the jargon of spyworld, that means the intelligence agencies have found the story is, at best, unproven—and possibly untrue.

[Note: if the CIA admits a story it has leaked and pushed is “possibly untrue,” that means it was made up out of whole cloth by the CIA to achieve a strategic or political purpose.]

“The United States intelligence community assesses with low to moderate confidence that Russian intelligence officers sought to encourage Taliban attacks on U.S. and coalition personnel in Afghanistan in 2019 and perhaps earlier,” a senior administration official said.

[End]

Let’s all remember this famous quote from William Colby, former Director of the CIA:

Image

“The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of any significance in the major media.”

Colby was Director of the CIA from 1973 through 1976. Do you really think anything has changed since that time? If you do, please give me a call – I have some great real estate I’d like to talk you into buying for a premium price.

I’ll tell you who doesn’t believe anything about the CIA’s cozy relationship with our corrupt, Nazi-style media has changed since the 1970s: Liberal writer Glenn Greenwald, that’s who. Greenwald has a terrific thread up on Twitter on this subject that everyone should read. Here it is:

“When the CIA speaks, they [the media] parrot.”

But wait, there’s more!

Again, Greenwald is a liberal writer who voted for Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden, though it’s hard to understand how anyone who displays as much innate intelligence and logical thought process ability could have made such horrific choices. But there it is.

Again, former CIA Director William Colby:

“The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of any significance in the major media.”

Think about it.

That is all.

What it Means for the Rest of Us When Twitter Bans O’Keefe and Project Veritas

Ok, so, follow me here… – James O’Keefe and Project Veritas repeatedly exposed CNN’s Nazi-style propaganda operation all over Twitter this week, airing videos of a senior producer at the cable channel only Joseph Goebbels could love bragging about CNN’s efforts to slant and outright fake the news it reports to its pathetic viewers in order to help tilt the 2020 presidential election in favor of our new Sock Puppet-in-Chief, China Joe Biden.

This producer’s on-video testimony reveals clearly and unambiguously that CNN has knowingly and intentionally aired fake news and promoted false conspiracies not only on air, but also all across its own website and social media accounts, including those housed at Twitter. These actions are in clear violation of the “rules” that Twitter pretends to enforce. No question about it. Thus, CNN and all of its on-air personalities who also have accounts on Twitter would logically be subject to being suspended and/or outright banned as a result of these intentional efforts to spread false propaganda across American society, something Twitter pretends to be trying to prevent with its unending efforts to censor conservative thought.

James O’Keefe and Project Veritas have unquestionably preformed a great public service by airing these videos. They’ve engaged in actual acts of real journalism, the kind of which J-school professors and newsroom editors used to be proud of, back when America had an actual functioning news media. Back when America used to be an actual, functioning republic.

So, in light of all of this fine journalism work that James O’Keefe and Project Veritas have done in exposing CNN’s outright mendacity yet again, what do the evil minions who run Twitter do? Why, they do exactly what we all should have expected them to do: They banned James O’Keefe and Project Veritas late on Thursday:

From a story at JustTheNews.com:

Project Veritas founder and president James O’Keefe’s Twitter account has been suspended the same week that the undercover organization has been releasing secretly recorded footage of remarks made by a CNN employee.

“I am suing Twitter for defamation because they said I, James O’Keefe, ‘operated fake accounts.’ This is false, this is defamatory, and they will pay. Section 230 may have protected them before, but it will not protect them from me. The complaint will be filed Monday,” O’Keefe said in a statement.

Project Veritas reported that a spokesperson for the social media company confirmed that O’Keefe is permanently barred “for violating the Twitter Rules on platform manipulation and spam.”

Project Veritas this week has released video footage featuring recordings of comments made by CNN Technical Director Charlie Chester, including footage in which Chester indicates that he believes CNN got Donald Trump ousted from the presidency.

“Look what we did, we got Trump out. I am 100% gonna say it, and I 100% believe it that if it wasn’t for CNN, I don’t know that Trump woulda got voted out. I really don’t think so,” Chester said.

[End]
O’Keefe, in an appearance with Captain Tick-Tock Sean Hannity last night, talked about his plans to sue Twitter for defamation for its lies about his conduct on the platform:

Other social media platforms, like Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Google, have also either banned O’Keefe and Project Veritas or heavily censored their videos.

So, now we see Big Tech monopolies not just helping to spread the Nazi-style propaganda these evil fake-news operations put out, but also resorting to outright banning anyone who dares to expose them.

Last Summer, as a dozen American cities were being burned and looted by two domestic terrorist groups created and funded by the Democrat Party and its donors, I told you America was basically at the same point in its history where Nazi Germany was when the Nazis launched Kristallnacht, or the “Night of Broken Glass” in November, 1938.

Today, with the Democrats having assumed full control in Washington and clamping down on their control of all elements of the media in this country, we’ve rolled right into Nazi Germany, circa 1939.

Poland had better watch out.

Thursday News Roundup: Tucker Carlson is Right, and so is Rand Paul

I don’t always agree with Rand Paul, but when he’s right, he’s right. – In an appearance on Fox News with the detestable Neil Cavuto Tuesday, Doctor and Senator Rand Paul did not pull any punches when talking about The Little Menace to Society Anthony Fauci, telling Cavuto that The Little Menace should be “voluntarily removed” from his daily appearances on television because he spreads so much disinformation and propaganda.

Dr./Sen. Paul went to say that, rather than hearing from Fauci and only Fauci on this viral gift from China, the nation should be hearing from a variety of real experts on the matter, many of whom have seen their message censored and obstructed by the legacy propaganda media and the Big Tech monopolies.

From a story at The Federalist:

Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul suggested Tuesday National Institutes of Health Director Anthony Fauci should be removed from the airwaves for his incessant anti-science fearmongering throughout the COVID-19 outbreak.

“Dr. Fauci should be voluntarily removed from TV because what he says is such a disservice and such fear-mongering, and almost all of what he says isn’t even matched by the science of his own institute,” Paul said on Fox Business. “Really, what we need to do is hear from a lot of different experts.”

Other expert opinions however have been stifled repeatedly by Silicon Valley tech giants with lucrative interests in prolonging a pandemic. Just this month, Google-owned YouTube, the internet’s most popular video hosting website, stripped a coronavirus roundtable event featuring Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis with elite-educated medical professionals in March because one expert questioned the need for children to wear face masks.

Paul’s comments came after Fauci gave his blessing to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommending states halt distribution of the coronavirus vaccine produced by Johnson and Johnson after six women developed blood clots.

[End]

For the past year, Fauci has represented nothing less than a clear and present threat to the survival of our country as a free and functioning Republic. He and the disinformation he has spread on a daily basis about this virus has caused incalculable damage to us all, robbing our children of a year of education and giving sanction to the federal and state governments to rob us all of our freedoms.

Literally nothing Fauci has recommended as a mitigation strategy to this virus has had the slightest impact on its spread, and now, as Dr./Sen. Paul notes, he is willingly doing great harm to the one mitigation – vaccines – that has had a measurable impact.

Sen. Paul is right: Fauci should have his media rights removed, and should have had them removed long ago. Anyone expecting the Harris/Biden administration to do that, though, is living in a dream world. They love the Little Menace and the societal chaos he continues to foment.

Speaking of clear and present dangers to our society… – All you need to know about the validity of “replacement theory” is to observe the utter panic maifest in the way Democrats and their evil toadies in the propaganda media reacted to Tucker Carlson’s telling the truth about it on his show Tuesday night.

For those who are unaware, the basis of replacement theory is that the Democrat Party’s future viability is dependent on its success in replacing white voters with immigrant voters, i.e., to transform the demographics of the country. This is not remotely a racist statement: It is simply an unarguable fact. To anyone with a functioning brain, the Democrats’ focus on doing this is manifestly obvious in the open borders illegal immigration policies they have pursued since early in the Obama years. Before that, they were pretty much all anti-illegal immigration, even Obama, Hillary and China Joe, and we have the video clips of them to prove it.

It is a simple, obvious fact that literally the only reason to pursue open borders is to execute this strategy. There is no legitimate reason to implement such policies, which harm all involved, even the immigrants themselves. This is a principle that every prominent member of the Democrat Party agreed with right up until 2009, when George Soros and others convinced them that their party would die unless they are able to import millions of illegal immigrants from around the world and ultimately give them the right to vote. The Democrats turned on a dime at that point, abandoning their traditional union, blue-collar voting base, and have pursued open borders ever since.

But let a prominent conservative like Tucker Carlson point out that simple reality publicly, and the Democrats and their media toadies rain down a withering campaign of slander against him, even demanding Fox News cancel his program, which of course is not going to happen. Why? Because the Democrat/media propaganda complex knows that their replacement strategy polls horribly, even among minority voters. Thus, they must deny the truth with every fiber of their being.

Here’s exactly what Tucker said about this obvious Democrat strategy on his show:

“Demographic change is the key to the Democratic Party’s political ambitions,” Carlson said Monday. “Let’s say that again for emphasis because it is the secret to the entire immigration debate. Demographic change is the key to the Democratic Party’s political ambitions. In order to win and maintain power, Democrats plan to change the population of the country. … Their goal is to make you irrelevant.”

In California, Carlson said that the state is now Democratic because the “population changed.”

“If you were actually from there, if you lived in the state of California in 1980, you probably still voted Republican,” added Carlson, who was born in San Francisco. “You hadn’t really changed. But as your state swelled with foreign voters, your views became irrelevant.”

He added: “The power to control your own life disappeared with the arrival of new people who diluted your vote. That was the whole point. That’s not democracy. It’s cheating.” The Fox News host then said Democrats have “packed the electorate” with immigrants and rigged “the game” with people who would ostensibly vote for them.

Carlson noted that “on a basic level, it is a voting rights question. One person equals one vote. If you change the population, you dilute the political power of the people who live there. So every time they import a new voter, I become disenfranchised as a current voter.”

He added: “So I don’t understand what we don’t understand ’cause, I mean, everyone wants to make a racial issue out of it. Ooh, you know, the white replacement theory? No, no, no. This is a voting-rights question. I have less political power because they are importing a brand new electorate. Why should I sit back and take that? The power that I have as an American guaranteed at birth is one man, one vote, and they are diluting it. No, they are not allowed to do that. Why are we putting up with this?”

[End]

If you’ve observed the Democrat/media response to Carlson’s clearly true and entirely accurate remarks, you will note that none of them even attempt to refute his points. They simply accuse him of being a “racist” for raising the subject in the first place, because they know that accusing anyone of being a racist puts an end to any debate. This is the standard Democrat/media/Saul Alinsky/George Soros tactic in every such situation.

Thus, you know what the truth about replacement theory is by the way the Democrat/media propaganda complex responds to it.

Simple.

Propaganda Media Ignores Story of Obama-Related CIA Corruption

If this surprises you, you haven’t been paying attention. – A former fundraiser for Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self, a guy named Imaad Zuberi (because of course his name is Imaad Zuberi), filed a complaint with the Inspector General for the Director of National Intelligence in which he admits to spending decades serving as an asset for the … wait for it … CIA.

Oh, you don’t say.

In the complaint, Zuberi – who has apparently decided to come fully clean about his life of crime against the American public – says he witnessed “flagrant problems, abuses, violations of law” while serving as one of the CIA’s thousands of hired guns in the United States and around the world.

From a story at JustTheNews.com:

maad Zuberi, a major Democratic fundraiser facing 12 years in prison, has filed an extraordinary complaint with the CIA’s chief watchdog alleging he witnessed “flagrant problems, abuses, violations of law” while working as an asset for U.S. intelligence, according to documents and interviews.

Zuberi, of Los Angeles, recently hired the CIA’s retired acting general counsel Robert J. Eatinger Jr. to review his case and help to appeal his conviction on a plea deal with federal prosecutors.

After reviewing evidence, including secret communications between Zuberi and his alleged CIA handlers that were enumerated in a secret Classified Information Protection Act filing in his criminal case, Eatinger prepared and delivered two complaints to the CIA inspector general earlier this month.

Shortly afterwards, the former CIA lawyer faxed letters to key members of the House and Senate intelligence committees alerting them to the allegations and offering to share a confidential summary if the IG did not formally open a probe.

New Director of National Intelligence Avril Haynes and CIA Director William Burns also were alerted to the complaints, according to the congressional letters reviewed by Just the News.

Eatinger, a highly respected intelligence community lawyer who retired from the CIA about a decade ago, used unmistakable language drawn from intelligence laws to describe to Congress the nature of Zuberi’s allegations.

He wrote that he had “submitted two reports to the Acting Inspector General of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) that contained complaints or information regarding serious or flagrant problems, abuses, violations of law or executive order, or deficiencies relating to the funding administration or operations of an intelligence activity.”

He added that if the CIA did not confirm it “will forward the reports to the intelligence committees within 14 days, we will do so directly.”

[End]

Rats like this guy are everywhere in our society, folks. They are so numerous that you’ve most likely met and dealt with some of them. Guys like Mr. Zuberi are a dime a dozen.

You will not see widespread reporting on Zuberi’s allegations in the corrupt legacy media, in part because Zuberi is an ally of Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self, and in part because those propaganda organs are filled with CIA operatives themselves, and have been since the 1950s. This fact was firmly established by the Church Committee’s investigation in the 1970s, and the CIA’s presence in our nation’s newsrooms has only become massively more pernicious since that time.

Ironically, Google provides more proof of the CIA’s influence related to this specific story. If you go Google Mr. Zuberi’s name, here is what you will find from legacy outlets on this story:

– A good report by the Wall Street Journal from 5 days ago;

– A perfunctory, old report by the Associated Press dated November 30, 2020;

– A brief little blurb at Politico in one of its many newsletters that is based on the WSJ story above.

That’s it. That’s all you get from our legacy media on a story about massive corruption at the CIA. The reasons why are obvious. All you have to do to know what they are is pay attention to what has been happening around you for a long, long time.

That is all.

The National Review Says Fauci Has ‘Worn Out His Welcome.’ If Only That Were True.

If only it were true. – The National Review went around the bend five years ago with its decision to push rank propaganda in opposition to the presidential campaign of Donald Trump, but every once in a great while it still publishes a piece worth reading. This morning is one of those rare cases.

The Editors at TNR published a piece late yesterday titled “Anthony Fauci Has Worn Out His Welcome,” whose title is self-explanatory to some extent, although stopping short of exactly which audiences the Little Menace to Society has worn out his welcome with. It’s an interesting thought for those who, like me, have been quite skeptical of Fauci’s true motives almost since Day 1 of this pandemic created by China. But is it accurate? We’ll talk about that in a moment.

First, here’s an excerpt from the TNR piece:

Fauci doesn’t write or establish the quarantine policies being enforced by cities and states; he can only advise other people in and out of government. But his voice carries a lot of weight, and, more or less willingly, he has become the face of America’s quarantine policies. Frustratingly, his perspective always seem to be that the right time to open up is another six weeks from now, no matter how low caseloads get or how much the national vaccination program accelerates.

And it’s hard to shake the sense that Fauci makes recommendations based on how he thinks people will react. Fauci admitted in December that he had changed his assessments about herd immunity, based on what he thought the public could handle hearing. In the pandemic’s early days, Fauci tended to cite the same 60 to 70 percent estimate that most experts did, but Fauci gradually boosted it to 85 percent. In an interview with the New York Times’ Donald McNeil Jr., Fauci “acknowledged that he had slowly but deliberately been moving the goal posts. He is doing so, he said, partly based on new science, and partly on his gut feeling that the country is finally ready to hear what he really thinks.”

At the beginning of March, Fauci forcefully criticized the state of Texas for ending its mandatory mask order, declaring “It’s risky and could set us back to a place that’s even worse than where we are now . . . and lead to additional surges.” And yet, Texas has seen its caseload continue to decline. When asked about the lack of an increase in that state, he answered, “You know, there are a lot of things that go into that. I mean, when you say that they’ve had a lot of the activity on the outside like ball games, I’m not really quite sure. It could be they’re doing things outdoors.

Earlier this month, after GOP lawmakers asked Fauci about the risk of outbreaks in migrant detention facilities, he said, “I have nothing to do with the border. . . . Having me down at the border, that’s really not what I do.” Except Fauci has weighed in on travel restrictions and border closures plenty of times in the past year. It’s self-evidently obvious that having lots of migrants of all ages cramped into detention facilities is a formula for a rapid spread of the virus. Fauci just didn’t want to criticize the Biden administration, so he dodged the question.

[End]

All of that is true, but does it really mean that Fauci has “worn out his welcome”? And if so, with which of his many audiences has his welcome been terminated? It’s a question the editors at TNR fail to explore, and that’s too bad. If they had, the might have chosen a different title for their piece.

Certainly, Fauci has worn out his welcome with the editors at TNR – that’s obvious from the headline of the story. I’d suspect he’s also worn out his welcome with many, if not most of TNR’s readers, who taken altogether might – MIGHT – represent one half of 1% of the population of this country.

The Little Menace certainly wore out his welcome long ago with anyone interested in things like intellectual honesty, logic, science and truth. But of course, that would exclude 98% of the corrupt propaganda media in this country, so the Little Menace remains quite welcome on corrupt propaganda operations like CNN and MSNBC, and all the various alphabet legacy networks.

But what about the average person on the street out there in the vast expanse of the United States of America? What about that 95% of the population who never really pays much attention to anything, that segment of society that never seems to know who the vice president happens to be, and which spends far more time checking their Facebook status or making idiotic Tik Tok videos than they do paying any attention to what Anthony Fauci has to say about COVID?

Has the Little Menace worn out his welcome with those folks? Or with the leftist nitwits who make up 90% of the audiences of CNN and MSNBC? Or with the Perpetual Outrage Mob that infests Twitter and other social media platforms? mmmmmmmmm…probably not. Hell, Fauci spends most of his time actually preaching to those lunatics and providing them with their daily talking, er, screaming points.

Finally, and most importantly, has the Little Menace worn out his welcome with China Joe or the Amazing Disappearing Kamala or all those tinpot despot Democrat governors who still have their states in lockdown and still force their people to wear masks that even Fauci has admitted don’t do a bit of good? You’re kidding, right? Fauci literally created all of those people, gave them their illegitimate power through his influence on this pandemic.

Those Democrats all love Fauci. Worship him, in fact – he has literally taken his place as one of that party’s many false idols at this point. The only way he can wear out his welcome with them is when he no longer serves a political purpose for them.

Sorry, TNR editors, that day certainly has not arrived. Get back to us when it does.

That is all.

Tuesday News Roundup: Ronald Reagan’s ‘Fascism in the Name of Liberalism’ has Arrived

CNN just keeps on getting faker and faker. – I kid you not, CNN’s little Humpty Dumpty mascot, Brian Stelter, did an entire 8-minute segment on his Sunday show in which he and his guest bemoaned the lack of shot-getting selfies posted on the web by personalities on Fox News:

Image

You just could never, never, ever make this stuff up, folks. You just can’t.

Twitter just keeps getting Nazi-er and Nazi-er. – Yesterday, I wrote about the real-estate-buying spree by Democrat domestic terror group Black Lives Matter founder Patrisse Khan Cullors. Today, I find myself writing about the fact that the Nazis who police Twitter to eliminate any form of thought that does not comply with the leftist narrative suspended the account of a writer – who happens to be Black – who dared to criticize the self-proclaimed Marxist Ms. Cullors for her lurch into capitalism.

No really. That really happened:

From the story at the DailyMail:

A prominent black sports journalist barred from Twitter for the ‘crime’ of discussing the $1.4 million house bought by a Black Lives Matter co-founder slammed the company for trying to silence legitimate debate.

Jason Whitlock, 53, told DailyMail.com on Monday that Twitter was ‘going too far’ by blocking him from posting to his account, which has nearly 450,000 followers.

The censorship by Twitter comes as social media companies, including Twitter and Facebook, have increasingly ‘de-platformed’ figures who stray too far from opinions they consider acceptable.

‘BLM is one of Big Tech’s sacred cows,’ Whitlock told DailyMail.com ‘I’ve been harping on the fraudulence and the financial grift of BLM for years.’

‘I think Twitter has been looking for an excuse to de-platform me,’ he said.

BLM raised $90 million last year, the AP has reported, but it’s unclear how leaders are paid – if they are paid – because the organization’s finances are opaque, a fact that has sparked criticism, even among local BLM chapters.

Now, Whitlock says, Twitter is trying to silence him for asking questions about BLM’s finances.

He was silenced just as it emerged that BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors, a self-professed ‘trained Marxist’, had purchased the $1.4 million house in LA. The New York Post reported Cullors had also bought two other LA homes in recent years, and paid $415,000 for a 3.2 acre property in Georgia.

When Whitlock tweeted his response to the news of Cullors’s purchase, he included a link to the popular celebrity real estate website The Dirt, which first reported the details of the property.

Cullors, 37, raised eyebrows with her new three bedroom, three bathroom house in Topanga Canyon, Los Angeles – a largely white district.

In her new zip code, 88 per cent of residents are white and 1.8 per cent black, according to the census.

Whitlock explained: ‘Twitter locked my account around 4pm Friday,’ confirming his account was still blocked.

‘They said my account was locked because I revealed personal information about someone.

‘They said I needed to remove the tweet that linked the dirt.com story about Cullors buying a house in Topanga.’

There was no explanation of how linking to the Dirt.com story revealed personal information as neither the story, nor Whitlock’s tweet, listed an address – and the purchase also was discussed widely elsewhere on Twitter and reported throughout the press.

Twitter didn’t respond to DailyMail.com’s request for comment.

[End]

Twitter refuses to respond for the simple fact that its explanation for Whitlock’s suspension – that he somehow revealed personal information about Cullors, something those on the radical left do all the time without penalty on Twitter – is completely false. Whitlock was suspended because someone in Ms. Cullors’ camp complained about him. That’s how things work at Twitter. There are no “rules” being enforced: It’s just a big tattle-tale micro-society in which those who toe the ideological narrative are safe.

And now you all know why I decided to get off of that evil, Nazi-style platform two years ago.

Future GOP presidential nominee Ron DeSantis put it all very well in a speech on Monday, after the Soviet-style news-fakers on CBS aired a second hit piece on their 60 Minutes fake news program:

Transcript:

“…And some of our biggest media conglomerates, who claim to be avatars of the first amendment and free exchange of ideas, they’ve really become cheerleaders for censorship. If something doesn’t fit the overriding narrative, then in their view it’s better that it gets left on the cutting room floor. It’s best that you edit it out of existence rather than tell people the truth. So, I think what we’re really witnessing is Orwellian. It’s a big tech/corporate media collusion, and the end result is that the narrative is always ‘right.’ Well, I don’t think that’s what the American people want, certainly not people here in Florida.”

Yes, that’s exactly what is happening here, and its only two possible ultimate outcomes are 1) we all end up kneeling down to the false gods who control the narrative, or 2) we all end up involved in a second U.S. civil war.

Because the false gods who control the narrative are never going to relent. Their goal is to turn our formerly free nation into just another Venezuela-style socialist/fascist state, with themselves in charge.

All of which just goes to show that the Great Ronald Reagan was right as usual when he said this:

“If fascism ever comes to America, it will come in the name of liberalism.” – Ronald Reagan

Brooklyn Center Riot Provides a Preview of Things to Come in Minneapolis

This is just a small preview of what’s going to happen after Derek Chauvin, the cop who allegedly killed George Floyd, is acquitted, which appears to be inevitable. – Riots and looting mysteriously managed to break out within minutes after it was revealed that a cop in Brooklyn Center, a suburb of Minneapolis, had inexplicably shot and killed a 20 year-old black man named Daunte Wright with his service pistol. The killing happened despite the cop’s claim that he was trying to use his taser to subdue Wright, who body cam footage clearly shows was resisting arrest, which is pretty much always the case in tragic stories like this.

How does that happen? You got me. But that’s the narrative the cop is trying to establish, and it obviously isn’t playing well with the community in Brooklyn Center.

From a story at Fox News:

A Sunday afternoon traffic stop in Minnesota turned into a deadly officer-involved shooting and a car accident.

Brooklyn Center Police said in a news release that the stop for a traffic violation was initiated on the 6300 block of North Orchard Avenue shortly before 2 p.m.

Brooklyn Center is about 10 miles from Minneapolis, where tensions are high during the murder trial of former officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd.

Demonstrators gathered shortly after the shooting and crash, with some jumping on top of police cars and confronting officers, and the National Guard was activated.

Authorities said that the driver of the vehicle had an outstanding warrant.

[End]

So, just as in the George Floyd case, another life ends during an attempted arrest of a man who is resisting arrest. The cop provides what really does seem to be an almost impossible-to-believe explanation for the shooting, and within a matter of minutes, a big crowd gathers and starts rioting and looting, no doubt organized and egged on by BLM/Antifa terrorists and media operations like CNN and MSNBC.

One African American man in Brooklyn Center no doubt spoke for many in the Black community when he unleashed a profanity-filled tirade on live tv at a CNN crew that was there to falsely portray what is happening in order to attract ratings:

If only we could make CNN get out of here with all of its media shit. The country would be so much better off without their Goebbels-style operation.

This is the exact same narrative that played out in cities all over the country last summer, and now it happens yet again just days before the jury will render its decision in the Derek Chauvin case. It seems almost impossible to believe it can all be just a terribly unfortunate series of coincidences, just as it seems almost impossible to believe that the fact that the FBI has had all of these mass shooters of the last decade under surveillance in advance of their killings is just a series of coincidences.

Yet here we are with the exact same scenario playing itself out over and over and over again in cities all over the country, and this newest example taking place just a few miles from the courthouse where the Derek Chauvin decision will be rendered soon.

The powder keg has thus been lit, and you can bet that none of the Democrat officials in charge in Minneapolis, the state of Minnesota or in the Biden administration will do anything in advance to prevent it from exploding in full force when the Chauvin jury renders its decision.

That is all.

Welcome to the Corporate Socialist States of America, Part II.

Welcome to the Corporate Socialist States of America, Part II.

[Note: Before reading this, you may want to refer back to my previous piece on this subject from April 5, “Welcome to the Corporate Socialist States of America, Comrades.“]

This story should scare the hell out of you:

From a story at the Washington Post:

More than 100 chief executives and corporate leaders gathered online Saturday to discuss taking new action to combat the controversial state voting bills being considered across the country, including the one recently signed into law in Georgia.

Executives from major airlines, retailers and manufacturers — plus at least one NFL owner — talked about potential ways to show they opposed the legislation, including by halting donations to politicians who support the bills and even delaying investments in states that pass the restrictive measures, according to four people who were on the call, including one of the organizers, Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, a Yale management professor.

[End]

So, here we go: More than 100 leaders from internationalist corporate interests – not mere “corporations” as the Post story describes them – gathered on a call to do one specific thing: Coordinate their political activities in a manner that will prevent GOP-dominated legislatures in states like Georgia and Pennsylvania and Arizona and Michigan and Texas from passing laws designed to head off the massive election fraud that took place in the 2020 presidential contest.

Simply put, this was a meeting about the desires of these globalist business leaders to preserve the ability to steal elections for Democrats. Period. That’s what it is.

Note that the Post does not portray these companies as “American” businesses, which is appropriate. Because these are not “American” companies – they are globalist companies with global interests. The fact that they are headquartered in this country is to these globalist men and women a mere footnote to history, not a sign of any loyalty to this country or its form of government. If anything, many of these companies are far more interested in displaying loyalty to the Chinese communist government because that represents a massively larger potential market than America represents today.

These leaders fought to elect Joe Biden last fall not despite  his obvious ties and vulnerabilities related to China, but because of those ties and vulnerabilities. To these corporate socialist leaders, that is a feature of China Joe, not a glitch.

This hyper-loyalty to China and its 1.2 billion person market also explains why these globalist companies also so detested Donald Trump and his “America first” agenda. These corporate socialist business leaders hold no loyalty to America or to its fading capitalist economic system. They are all about control – they want to be able to control their tax environment, which Trump disrupted, control their regulatory environment and control their markets.

Many people will wonder why these globalist corporations hated Trump’s tax reforms, with its cut in the corporate tax rate. The answer is simple: While those cuts did benefit their bottom lines in this country, they were far more targeted on helping small businesses, which these globalists hate since they tend to impede on their market shares. The same is true of all of Trump’s cancellations of heavy regulations: Those mainly benefitted small companies who do not have the resources to comply with and mitigate  the costs of such regulations, something these enormous corporate interests have in droves.

These globalist corporate interests deal with heavy regulatory and tax regimes in communist and socialist countries all over the world. A low tax and regulatory scheme that mainly benefits small businesses in the U.S. is not in their best interests. So, here in the U.S., they are all in favor of more regulations and heavier taxes that mainly disadvantage their small competitors.

Over the past year, we saw the very same principle of self-interest at work with the heavy COVID restrictions. Wal-Mart and Target and Starbucks and Apple and AT&T and all these other giant corporations were all for that stuff because they knew the main effect of it would be to put their competitors out of business, which is exactly what has happened.

Now, with China Joe safely installed as their Sock Puppet-in-Chief, these globalist corporate honchos don’t even feel the need to disguise their efforts: They’ll just have their calls and leak their strategy to carefully-selected corrupt reporters at the Washington Post, CNN and the New York Times to ensure the Republicans who they’re targeting will get the message.

Republican politicians had better wake up and figure out that these big corporations are their enemies fast, or they will find themselves and their party out of power permanently. This call was basically a declaration of war on the GOP and this country’s form of government.

That is all.

Monday News Roundup: BLM Marxist Discovers Capitalism as China Joe Leads the U.S. on a Fast Lurch to Marxism

The New York Post nails another one. – “Black Lives Manors” reads the headline at the New York Post in an expose of the recent high-dollar real estate-buying binge by the “Marxist” leader of the Black Lives Matter movment, Patrisse Khan Cullors. The BLM founder and leader recently purchase no fewer than four new homes with a combined value of roughly $3 million, including a $1.4 million barndominium in Topanga Canyon, California.

Image

It turns out that some of the other “Marxist” leaders of the domestic terror wing of the Democrat Party aren’t real happy about Ms. Cullors’ conspicuous displays of wealth, with at least one demanding an investigation into exactly how she has been spending the terror group’s money.

From the story at the Post:

As protests broke out across the country in the name of Black Lives Matter, the group’s co-founder went on a real estate-buying binge, snagging four high-end homes for $3.2 million in the US alone, according to property records.

Patrisse Khan-Cullors, 37, also eyed property in the Bahamas at an ultra-exclusive resort where Justin Timberlake and Tiger Woods both have homes, The Post has learned. Luxury apartments and townhouses at the beachfront Albany resort outside Nassau are priced between $5 million and $20 million, according to a local agent.

The self-described Marxist last month purchased a $1.4 million home on a secluded road a short drive from Malibu in Los Angeles, according to a report. The 2,370 square-foot property features “soaring ceilings, skylights and plenty of windows” with canyon views. The Topanga Canyon homestead, which includes two houses on a quarter acre, is just one of three homes Khan-Cullors owns in the Los Angeles area, public records show.

Some fellow activists were taken aback by the real estate revelations.

Hawk Newsome, the head of Black Lives Matter Greater New York City, called for “an independent investigation” to find out how the global network spends its money.

“If you go around calling yourself a socialist, you have to ask how much of her own personal money is going to charitable causes,” he said. “It’s really sad because it makes people doubt the validity of the movement and overlook the fact that it’s the people that carry this movement.”

Last year, Khan-Cullors and spouse Janaya Khan ventured to Georgia to acquire a fourth home — a “custom ranch” on 3.2 rural acres in Conyers featuring a private airplane hangar with a studio apartment above it, and the use of a 2,500-foot “paved/grass” community runway that can accommodate small airplanes.

The three-bedroom, two-bath house, about 30 minutes from Atlanta, has an indoor swimming pool and a separate “RV shop” that can accommodate the repair of a mobile home or small aircraft, according to the real estate listing.

The Peach State retreat was purchased in January 2020 for $415,000, two years after the publication of Khan-Cullors’ best-selling memoir, “When They Call You a Terrorist.”

In October, the activist signed “a multi-platform” deal with Warner Bros. Television Group to help produce content for “black voices who have been historically marginalized,” she said in a statement.

It is not known how much Khan-Cullors received in compensation in either deal.

[End]

For a communist, Ms. Cullors sure does engage in a lot of capitalism. Hilarious.

I’ve been warning you about this for more than a year now. – CNN is now even writing about it overtly. That is the inevitable effort by Democrats to not let a good crisis go to waste, and to use the COVID-19 pandemic as an opening to force the nation down the path towards the Party goal of becoming a communist paradise.

Now that they have their shiny new Sock Puppet-in-Chief safely installed into the White House, the Democrats are putting their project to transform the nation into full gear, knowing that China Joe is incapable of throwing up any resistance, even on the off-chance he figured out what was going on. Which he isn’t capable of doing, and we all know it.

In a story published at its website on Sunday, CNN glowingly lays out how the “progressives”, i.e., communists in the White House are going about transforming the country and there’s not a damn thing any of us can do about it.

From the story:

As they chart the country’s tentative economic recovery, White House officials see possibility in the wake of the pandemic — an opportunity to dive full bore into pursuing the most transformative progressive policies in decades.

Holed up in offices in the cavernous Eisenhower Executive Office Building, top White House economic officials are combing through reams of data from the dramatic emergency measures deployed to address the dual economic and public health crises created by the pandemic, the kind of real-time information progressive economists have only been able to dream about during past economic downturns.

They contend that data shows their policy priorities are having a tangible effect — and that it helps make the case for doubling down in the form of a massive infrastructure and jobs package, even if Republicans aren’t on board.

It’s not just that the series of unprecedented measures implemented over the course of the last year, punctuated by President Joe Biden $1.9 trillion Covid relief package, are helping to address the pandemic, though that’s what the numbers show, said Charlie Anderson, director of economic policy and budget for Biden’s Covid-19 response team.

“But (it) also sets in place the foundation for us to do what we should’ve been doing all along,” Anderson said in an interview with CNN.

The result is an administration that is hardly running from the GOP attack that they are going too big, several White House officials told CNN over the past several weeks. Biden and his team say it’s a moment that cannot be missed, one that should be driven by addressing what they view as long-standing structural deficiencies in the economy.

[End]

Here’s the great irony in that last part: The “longstanding structural deficiencies in the economy” that these communists want to address are the remaining parts of it that they don’t control. You know, like the ability of “Marxist” leaders of their party’s domestic terrorist group BLM being able to invest in high-dollar real estate and capitalist stuff like that.

You can read through the rest of CNN’s drivel and not find a word about how Biden’s policies have already created the highest gasoline prices in 3 years, have driven up the prices of food at the local supermarket by 20% in just a few months or have created a major humanitarian catastrophe on the southern border. This is all just about 1,000 words of typical state-run media cheerleader drivel, exactly what you would expect from CNN if you’ve been paying a shred of attention in recent years.

What the Biden people in the White House are doing is taking our country on a rapid lurch towards becoming Venezuela, and they’re using COVID-19 as their platform for doing it.

That’s the truth, and we shouldn’t be shy about saying it.

That is all.

Sunday News Roundup: John Roberts Betrays America Again, and Anthony Fauci Isn’t Sure

The New York Post’s social media guru could have ended the title of this tweet at “not sure”:

From the story at the Post:

It’s been some five weeks since Texas lifted its mask mandate, and there has yet to be an explosion of COVID-19 cases.

It’s something Dr. Anthony Fauci can’t quite explain.

“I’m not really quite sure,” he told MSNBC this week. “It could be they’re doing things outdoors.”

Daily cases in Texas hovered above 7,000 in early March, when Gov. Greg Abbott lifted the state’s mask rules, leaving it up to individuals and organizations to make their own decisions.

Now, according to the Centers for Disease Control, new cases of COVID-19 are under 4,000.

Fauci noted there can be a delay in how and when cases manifest.

“Often you have to wait a few weeks before you see the effect of what you’re doing right now,” he said.

“I hope they continue to tick down. If they do, that would be great but there’s always the concern when you pull back on methods — particularly on things like indoor dining and bars that are crowded — you could see a delay and then all of a sudden tick right back up,” he said.

“We’ve been fooled before by situations where people begin to open back up. Nothing happens and then all of a sudden several weeks later things explode on you, so we’ve got to be careful we don’t prematurely judge that,” he added.

[End]

Now, understand that this Little Menace to Society, Anthony Fauci, has been running around the country for more than a year now proclaiming without any doubt at all that the incubation time for this viral gift from China is two weeks. TWO WEEKS. Yet, as the story notes, Gov. Abbott lifted the idiotic, worthless mask order in Texas FIVE weeks ago now, and the state’s numbers of cases and deaths have dropped dramatically over that time.

So, we’re three weeks past the Fauci-promoted incubation time here in Texas and have not seen the increase in cases that both Fauci and our national Sock Puppet-in-Chief, China Joe predicted would happen, yet, the Little Menace “isn’t sure” why that is the case.

Presumably, the Little Menace also “isn’t sure” how to explain the reality expressed in this chart compiled from official CDC data on the China virus:

Image

Here’s the easy explanation: Texas and Mississippi dramatically DOWN since lifting their mask orders;  Michigan, New Jersey and New York, all of which have kept their mask orders in religiously in place, dramatically UP across the same period of time. Because science, right?

Mr. Fauci can’t explain any of this. He “isn’t sure” why this has happened, just as he has not been “sure” about literally anything about this virus, other than the fact that it happened to originate in a Wuhan lab to which his own National Institutes of Health has sent billions of U.S. dollars over the past 20 years. That part, he’s no doubt very sure about.

This little propagandist is a pure menace to our entire society. A sensible, just society would have put him in prison by now, or at the very least locked him away in some isolation area to ensure he can never show his face on television again. Instead, he will no doubt make several appearances on the Sunday network TV propaganda shows today, in which he will continue to spread his false, constantly-conflicting propaganda and not be able to explain why he has been wrong about literally everything about this virus for 15 solid months now.

At what point do we all just admit that John Roberts is just one more abject failure by George W. Bush? – A year after it was implemented, the Supreme Court of the United States finally got around to declaring California Governor Gavin Newsom’s order shutting down church services in his state to be a violation of the First Amendment to the Constitution on Friday in a 5-4 decision. Not surprisingly, the supposedly “conservative” chief justice, the clearly-compromised John Roberts, sided with the three communists on the court in a dissenting opinion that basically says, hey, what First Amendment?

From a story at ScotusBlog:

In an unsigned opinion, the majority wrote that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit’s failure to put California’s COVID restrictions on hold was “erroneous.” The Supreme Court’s decisions in earlier challenges to COVID-related restrictions have, the justices wrote, “made several points clear.” Among other things, the majority stressed, government regulations are subject to heightened scrutiny whenever they treat any secular activity more favorably than religious activity; it doesn’t matter that the state also treats some secular businesses or activities poorly. Moreover, the majority added, a case may remain a live controversy even if the government changes the policy – particularly when, as here, “officials with a track record of ‘moving the goalposts’ retain authority to reinstate those heightened restrictions at any time.”

In her dissent, Kagan contended that the First Amendment “requires that a State treat religious conduct as well as the State treats comparable secular conduct.” That, she wrote, is what California has done, by adopting “a blanket restriction on at-home gatherings of all kinds.” California doesn’t have to treat at-home religious gatherings “the same as hardware stores and hair salons,” she contended.

[End]

Note that stunning declaration by the commie Kagan: the First Amendment “requires that a State treat religious conduct as well as the State treats comparable secular conduct.”

Here’s a reminder of what the First Amendment actually says: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

It has long been established by the courts that the word “congress” applies to government at all levels in our society, and Kagan’s opinion does not attempt to dispute that. But her contention that a state must only “treat religious conduct as well as the State treats comparable secular conduct” is stunning, and the fact that a supposedly “conservative” jurist would agree with that contention is even more stunning, and shows just how precariously-situated our rights in this country truly are.

If Kagan’s absurd contention were correct, then the Constitution would, in addition to a prohibition on government to restrict the exercise of religion, contain amendments prohibiting government from restricting the exercise of going to movies, or rock concerts, or Broadway shows, or other secular public gatherings similar to going to church. But the Constitution does not do that: It specifically singles out the free exercise of religion, and nothing more.

This was a 5-4 decision, folks, with the dissent involving 3 overt commies and a closet commie who isn’t really much in the closet anymore. Various news reports on the decision said something along the lines of “John Roberts sided with the 3 liberals on the court” in describing Roberts’ latest betrayal of this country. At what point do we simply recognize that John Roberts is no “conservative,” and is in fact just part of a 4-member commie minority on the court at this point?

George W. Bush made a lot of mistakes – too many to properly catalogue, in fact. But of all those mistakes, the appointment of John Roberts is proving to be his worst.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: The Border Crisis is Intentional, and the Media is Complicit

Prince Phillip died early Friday morning:

From the story at the New York Post:

Prince Philip, the longest-serving royal consort in British history, who was a constant companion to Queen Elizabeth II during their 74 years of marriage and the father to royal heir Prince Charles, died Friday. He was 99.

“It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen has announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh,” Buckingham Palace announced on Twitter Friday.

“His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle.”

Known for his easy-going humor, dapper wardrobe and sometimes startling frankness, The Duke of Edinburgh was a tireless advocate for the monarchy, wildlife conservation, science and a proponent of mixing athletics with scholarship.

He also racked up more than 22,000 solo public engagements since 1952.

The oldest-ever male member of the British royal family, Philip was rarely seen in public after he retired from his public duties in August 2017.

[End]

RIP.

Here’s all you need to know about China Joe Biden and gun control. – China Joe doesn’t even know the name of the agency charged with enforcing America’s gun laws:

At one point in his utterly, completely, 100% dishonest speech announcing his new executive orders on gun control, our brain-addled Sock Puppet read from his TelePrompter a statement claiming that attendees at gun shows are able to purchase firearms with no background checks at all. An outright lie.

When asked at her press briefing later in the day if the Sock Puppet-in-Chief actually believes that lie, the hapless Jen Circle Back Psaki responded exactly as you’d expect her to respond:

“No, it’s not his belief.” That’s an actual, very rare true statement from the White House spokesperson. See, Joe Biden doesn’t actually have beliefs of his own. On any subject. As I’ve written many times in the past, Joe Biden’s brain is an empty vessel waiting to be refilled with the ideas of others.

I mean, my God, this is a man who was forced out of the presidential race in 1988 because he is so vacant-minded that he literally plagiarized the speech of a British politician in an effort to reinvent his own personal life story. This man doesn’t even know who he is as a person, much less hold any deep beliefs about the pressing issues facing America today.

And of course he doesn’t really believe anything he said in that speech yesterday, which as Tucker Carlson exposed in his monologue last night, was nothing but a recitation of the long-promoted false talking points of the radical left on the issue of gun control. That speech – like every other speech he gives – was written for him by others. All China Joe did was read it, and not very well, obviously.

A friend commented after Biden’s latest lurch into Soviet-style totalitarianism that “it’s almost as if the Democrat Party decided last year to intentionally saddle the country with the single dumbest and most easily-manipulated person in their entire party.”

No, it’s not ‘almost’ like that: It’s exactly like that. And they succeeded.

God help us, the alternative to China Joe – the amazing disappearing “Border Czar” and former escort for Willie Brown – is even worse and more dangerous.

We are so screwed.

Meanwhile, at that same fake White House press briefing… – Not a single question was raised by a single fake reporter during this hour-long daily soiree about the literal invasion that is happening at our border with Mexico. Not one.

The crisis at our southern border continues to explode, with the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol posting all-time record high numbers of apprehensions during March. The numbers are simply overwhelming:

From a story at the DailyMail:

March saw the most migrant children crossing the border in a month in HISTORY with 19,000 kids taken into cramped shelters that cost $60MILLION a week

March saw the most migrant children crossing the border in history, with 18,890 unaccompanied minors being taken into cramped shelters.

The previous record was when around 11,000 children crossed the border in May 2019.

The March numbers provided by Customs and Border Patrol Thursday represented a 100 per cent increase in crossings compared to February.

Overall in March, the CBP encountered more than 172,000 people attempting to gain entry along the Southwest border, which represented a 71 per cent increase over February 2021.

The CBP’s acting commissioner Troy Miller pushed that the situation was under control.

‘CBP has experienced an increase in encounters and arrests. This is not new. Encounters have continued to increase since April 2020, and our past experiences have helped us be better prepared for the challenges we face this year,’ Miller said in a statement attached to the new numbers. ‘We are committed to balancing the needs of maintain border security, care for those in our custody and keep the American people and our workforce safe.’

It was also revealed on Thursday that Biden’s Department of Health and Human Services is spending $60million a week to house the child migrants in 10 shelters across the country.

Figures seen by The Washington Post show the cost of caring for one of these youths is $290 a day, and the 7,700 available beds have already been completely overwhelmed.

President Joe Biden also tried to characterize the influx as normal seasonal upticks during his late March press conference.

‘It happens every single solitary year. There is a significant increase in the number of people coming to the border in the winter months of January, February, March – it happens every year,’ Biden said then.

[End]
Of course, China Joe’s statement there is an outright lie written for him by his evil handlers, which accurately describes literally every statement he makes in public. This is not just an ‘uptick’, not anything resembling normal seasonal fluctuations in border human trafficking. These are all-time record numbers, and this is what an invasion looks like.
Meanwhile, China Joe’s “Border Czar,” Kamala Harris, spends her time shopping for cranberry-orange muffins in Chicago.

Why don’t the fake reporters ask about any of this when given the chance? Because this crisis at the border is a feature of the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden administration, not a glitch. This is all just part of the plan, and the corrupt, Soviet-style state-run propaganda media is complicit.

This really is not complicated. Not at all.

That is all.

Tucker Carlson Flays Joe Biden’s Dishonest Gun Control Push

Tucker Carlson has, in the wake of Rush Limbaugh’s passing, become the premier conservative thought leader in America. No one else is really close. Carlson pulls no punches, speaks with a clarity of thought and intellectual consistency, and regularly roasts both Democrats and RINO Republicans for their constant gaslighting of the American people. And like Rush, he does it all with a keen sense of irony and humor that no one else in the public square today can match.

I was going to write a long piece this morning about China Joe Biden’s reprehensibly dishonest rollout of a set of proposed new restrictions on gun ownership on Thursday, but there is no need: Tucker Carlson already said what I had planned to say.

Here is a clip of last night’s monologue on gun control, followed by a transcript. It should be required viewing/reading in every home in America. I’ve added some bolding of key passages in the transcript.

Transcript:

Nothing the Democratic Party advocates for is more dishonest than gun control. Everything about that specific issue is false. Most policy debates aren’t like that, and we try to be honest about it. No matter how passionate you are about a position, you can still sort of see what the other side is talking about.

You might deeply dislike taxes, for example, but you can still acknowledge it’s fair to charge people for the services they receive from government. The other side isn’t crazy, they’ve just arrived at a different number than you did. You can hate abortion (and we do) and still understand (again, if you’re being totally honest about it) why a scared pregnant teenager might be tempted to have one.

Gun control is not like that. Gun control is entirely fraudulent. The Democratic Party claims that guns cause violence. That’s the core claim, and it is a lie. It’s provably untrue. The places in this country that have the most guns and the loosest controls on those guns also have the least gun violence and the fewest killings. That’s the bottom line. You could look it up; the statistics are available to anyone.

Anyone who tries to restrict your legally owned firearms is not trying to make America safer. The point is to disarm you and strip you of your autonomy, your power, your right to self-defense. Gun control is not about guns. Gun control is about who controls America. Is it the population, as in a democracy, or does all control go to a small group of authoritarians, as in an oligarchy? Those are the stakes in the gun control debate. It’s not about guns, it’s about who runs the country.

With that in mind, Joe Biden’s speech Thursday calling for more gun control should make you uncomfortable. Almost nothing the president said was true. For example, he claimed that firearms purchased at gun shows are exempt from background checks. That’s a lie, as anyone who’s ever been to a gun show can tell you. Biden also claimed that gun manufacturers have total immunity against lawsuits. That’s also a lie. Gun manufacturers get sued all the time, just ask them. And so on. It was a speech aimed to mislead rather than to inform. Before he announced how he plans to restrict your Second Amendment rights, Joe Biden wanted to remind you that those rights are not real in the first place. They are not, as he put it, “absolute.”

BIDEN:  Nothing I’m about to recommend in any way impinges on the Second Amendment. There are phony arguments suggesting that these are Second Amendment rights at stake, for what we’re talking about. But no amendment, no amendment to the Constitution is absolute.

(By the way, if you watched the speech live, you heard the sirens in the background responding to the skyrocketing crime rate in the city Biden presides over.)

The right to keep and bear arms “shall not be infringed,” the Constitution promised. But according to Joe Biden, that’s not an absolute right, despite what the text says. No, that right is subject to his approval and his interpretation. Joe Biden is in charge of the Constitution now. Joe Biden defines its terms and Joe Biden has decided that something called “stabilizing braces” can no longer be allowed.

Now, a stabilizing brace is used by target shooters to hold heavy firearms. They play zero role in the murder epidemic now underway in our cities. So why is Joe Biden banning them without the approval of Congress? Probably because up to 40 million law-abiding Americans own this device. Under Biden’s order, every one of those people will have to alert federal authorities and pay hundreds of dollars in fines for the crime of owning a harmless piece of plastic that was legal yesterday. If they don’t comply, Joe Biden’s federal authorities can drag them off in handcuffs, seize their property, and charge them with a felony.

So with a single stroke of a pen, Joe Biden just turned tens of millions of overwhelmingly Republican voters into criminals. Is it starting to make sense now? Think about that for a minute and you’ll begin to understand why the Democratic Party is so focused on what they call “weapons of war.” You might know them as semiautomatic, small-caliber sporting rifles that normal people use for hunting and target shooting and home defense.

Here’s the thing: No subject is more carefully cataloged than gun violence. Guns like these so-called “weapons of war” play no meaningful role in crime. Virtually all gun murders in this country are committed with handguns (again, don’t take our word for it, you can look this up). A small number of people are responsible for most of the violence and they use a small variety of weapons to commit it (again, you can look this up). Those weapons are not rifles.

Here are the numbers: According to the most recent data from the FBI, firearms were involved in a total of 10,258 homicides in 2019, the last year for which data is available. Fewer than 500 out of more than 10,000 of those homicides were committed with rifles, including so-called weapons of war. So criminals don’t use rifles. They’re not concealable. Maybe that’s why, in fact, more people were murdered with knives than with rifles.

So if you actually cared about making the country safer and keeping people from getting murdered, you would target handguns in big cities. That’s where the murders are. That’s where the violence is. But the Biden administration is doing the opposite of this, the mirror image of this. The Biden administration is letting big city criminals go. People who use guns for violence are walking out of jail. And instead, the Biden administration is using the full force of government to disarm peaceful voters in zip codes that voted for Donald Trump. It is that simple.

Thursday, Biden announced that he wants to ban what he called “assault weapons.” He was speaking about the AR 15, the single most popular sporting rifle in America. So the question is: If we banned so-called assault weapons, would the country become safer? We don’t need to guess about the answer because we tried this before under Bill Clinton. For ten full years, we banned assault rifles and then, by law, the Department of Justice studied the effects. Once that ban expired in 2004, gun homicides fell in almost every major city (again, you can look this up). So policies like this one are unhinged from reality, to put it gently.

Luckily, to enforce them. Joe Biden nominated a man who is unhinged from reality. His name is David Chipman, and he will now run the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF), an agency that Joe Biden referred to Thursday as the “AFT”

“David knows AFT well.” Hilarious. If you’re Joe Biden, everything’s a teacher’s union.

So who is this David Chipman? He’s a conspiracy nut, for one thing.

In a recent Internet post, he claimed that the Branch Davidians shot down helicopters during the Waco siege in 1993. They didn’t. No one aboard a federal helicopter was shot or injured that day. The helicopters also didn’t crash. That’s a bizarre claim coming someone who was directly involved in the case, as Chipman was. But it’s worse than that. In the spring of 1993, the ATF killed dozens of innocent children and at least one pregnant woman for no obvious reason. It’s one of the worst things federal agents have done in this country.

If you’re taking over the ATF, maybe you could apologize for that. But no. David Chipman lied about it, and attacked the dead. It was like blaming the Japanese for their own internment, or attacking the victims of the Tuskegee Experiment for getting syphilis. Not evidence of a generous spirit, evidence of a zeal. This is the man Joe Biden just nominated to lead the ATF.

But it gets worse. In a Reddit post, David Chipman suggested that people who fail background checks should be arrested on the spot.

“While at ATF, I conducted studies involving people who failed background checks to determine how many later committed crimes with a gun—many did,” he wrote. “This is a perfect opportunity to arrest people before committing crimes rather than responding after the fact.”

“Arrest people before committing crimes.” That’s a new concept in American law, though the Chinese are highly familiar with it.

However, it does raise a point of pressing interest to the Biden family. Joe Biden just appointed a guy who thinks people who lie on federal firearms background checks should go to prison. Do you know any people like that? Hunter Biden purchased a handgun illegally. He lied on a federal background check. (That’s not speculation. He did. We’ve seen the form.) So the question is, will David Chipman arrest the president’s son? And if he doesn’t arrest the president’s son, the question is: How exactly are you obligated to follow these rules?

That’s a serious question. Can you live in a country where the rules don’t apply to the president’s son, but you could go to jail for violating them? How can you participate in a system like that?

We should note that David Chipman has said a lot of other things on the internet that he doesn’t want you to see. He’s locked his Twitter account so no one can read what he’s written. But the Daily Wire found an archived version of David Chipman’s Twitter page, and compared it to his current page. They found he’s deleted at least 1,000 tweets in recent days.

We can only speculate what David Chipman said in those posts. But we do know that what he’s said publicly tells us all we need to know about why Joe Biden selected him. In October 2018, for example, David Chipman told The Hill that AR-15’s should be treated “just like machine guns” — meaning banned. Chipman made that remark in his capacity as a policy adviser for an anti-gun group. In 2012, he suggested on MSNBC that the Secret Service shouldn’t carry firearms. And last year, David Chipman openly mocked the millions of Americans who are buying guns to protect their families from the crime wave Chipman’s party started:

CHIPMAN: They might think that they’re Die Hard, ready to go, but unfortunately they’re more like Tiger King and they’re putting themselves and their family in danger, and so what I would suggest is to those first-time gun owners – I would secure that gun locked and unloaded and hide it behind the cans of tuna and beef jerky stored in a cabinet and only bring that out if the zombies start to appear and I don’t think they are.

It’s hard to imagine a flippant or more infuriating remark. If you bought a gun to protect your family, your business or your home during the riots that these people unleashed on the country, the conspiracy nut running the ATF calls you crazy. That’s why, if you made the mistake of buying a handgun with a magazine that holds more than 10 rounds — in other words, if you bought a Glock 19 or any of the most popular handguns sold in America — you’ll be obligated to surrender it to that guy.

WILLIAM BRANGHAM, PBS HOST, 2019: And high-capacity means — what kind of numbers are we talking about?

CHIPMAN: Yes. I think the consensus has been around 10. And there are a number of reasons why. 

BRANGHAM: So, 10 and above would be high? 

CHIPMAN: Yes. Well, I think — let’s say 10 and below are OK or reasonable. Above would be regulated.

So this raises a lot of questions: Why is David Chipman allowed to decide how many rounds you’re allowed in your magazine? What does he know about that? Is he in charge of protecting your family? Does he live in your neighborhood? Are your children his responsibility? It’s outrageous. But worse than that is, it’s theater. It’s not real. People like David Chipman aren’t opposed to gun violence. In fact, people like David Chipman, his party, certainly are making gun violence possible in this country.

We can give you many examples, but here’s just one from Washington D.C.: The city is planning to stop enforcing gun laws. The party that thinks guns cause violence is no longer pulling them off the street. Why? Because it’s racially insensitive to do so. A D.C. police commander called John Haines just sent a memo announcing this policy: “No longer are we focused on getting guns.” What aren’t they telling us out of the other side of their mouth? That your guns are their problem. Your guns, not the criminals’ guns, your guns, because you’re the criminal now.

Meanwhile, in Chicago, where a 21-month-old child was just shot in a road rage incident last month, Mayor Lori Lightfoot has also decided that not all guns need to be removed from the streets. According to her, the real danger isn’t handguns. It’s “military-grade weapons” from Indiana:

LIGHTFOOT, APRIL 7: You can go over the border in Indiana and literally buy military-grade weapons at any quantity.

That statement is a shocking lie, and Chicago’s own data proves it. Most violent crimes in Illinois were committed with guns purchased in the state. According to Chicago police, from 2018 to 2019, authorities encountered a grand total of four people armed with rifles. Four. That’s it. That’s what Lori Lightfoot is focused on. 

In that same period, authorities encountered 44 people armed with revolvers, 15 people armed with “chemical weapons” (whatever that is), and 32 people “wielding their feet” in a violent manner. The rest, of course, were semiautomatic handguns That’s what all the murders are committed with, and everyone knows it. Rifles are not a real threat in Chicago, and they haven’t been for a long time, if ever.

Between 2013 and 2016, just 4.8% of guns recovered by Chicago police were rifles. The most recent murder report from Chicago was from all the way back in 2011 (they’re a little slow on the numbers there), but according to that report, just one rifle was used in a homicide in the city of Chicago, one. That’s what they want to take away. Why? Because you own it, not the criminals.

In the decade that followed, a George Soros-funded state’s attorney named Kim Foxx took over in Chicago. During her tenure, prosecutors started dropping cases for serious gun gun crimes. Not accidentally, but as a matter of policy. Aggravated battery with a firearm, unlawful use of a weapon, reckless discharge of a firearm, serious crimes involving guns. They dropped the charges. They’re not worried about gun crime. They’re worried about you protecting yourself, and not just in Chicago.

Across the country, criminals who commit violence with guns are going free. Murder rates are hitting record levels. Meanwhile, you haven’t hurt anyone. You haven’t done anything wrong. But suddenly, Hunter Biden has a fat book contract from Simon & Schuster, and you’re a felon for trying to defend your home. You can see what’s going on here.

Again, they’re not trying to control guns. They’re trying to control you.

Thursday News Roundup: Nikki Haley Rears Her Head as Biden’s Border Crisis Grows Worse

The Babylon Bee never disappoints. – This one is absolutely perfect:

Remember the day when the best parody writers in America worked at Saturday Night Live and SCTV? Now, they all work at the Babylon Bee.

I’m old enough to remember when China Joe Biden put Kamala Harris “in charge” of dealing with the crisis at the border. – That was 15 days ago, and since then the fake Vice President has essentially disappeared from performing any apparent duties at all (not that she was doing much before that time) and people – like GOP establishment darling Nikki Haley – are starting to talk.

From the story at Fox News:

Vice President Kamala Harris continued to draw criticism Wednesday about her absence from the U.S.-Mexico border region — and for not facing reporters about her role as President Biden’s border czar.

Her most recent detractors included former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, who called Harris “missing in action” on Wednesday and said, “God help us if she ever becomes president.”

The vice president has so far avoided a border visit — or a news conference about her border-related duties — despite having visited Southern California over Easter weekend. She has now gone 15 days without holding a news conference about the border since taking on her new role.

[End]

Yes, Nikki, God help us indeed if Kamala Harris ever becomes president. Of course, the same could be said about you, but more about that later.

When asked about the fact that Harris is obviously doing nothing related to the border crisis, but had the time to visit Chicago and go shopping at a bakery over the weekend, White House spokesperson Jen Psaki replied that the Veep is “allowed a snack.”

Think about the breathtaking level of utter hubris it takes to say such a thing in the midst of the horrific humanitarian crisis that is happening in real time at the border. It borders on being inhuman. These people are ghouls.

Psaki’s snarky reply came at almost the same moment at which Texas Governor Greg Abbott was ordering Texas Rangers – the real Rangers, not the baseball team – to investigate one of the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden border detention facilities in San Antonio for allegations of child sex abuse:

From a story at Fox News:

Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott demanded that the White House close a San Antonio facility housing migrant children Wednesday following allegations that children there were being sexually assaulted.

During a Wednesday evening press conference, Abbott said he received tips that alleged the children at the Freeman Coliseum facility were being sexually abused and were not eating enough.

“These problems are a byproduct of President Biden’s open border policies and the lack of planning for the fallout for those disastrous policies,” Abbott told reporters.

The governor said that separate complaints were sent to the Department of Health and Human Services and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services Wednesday, alleging four different kinds of child abuse.

The agencies then informed the state leadership.

Abbott said allegations of sexual assault, an insufficient number of staffers, children not eating, and an inability to separate COVID-19 positive children from virus-free children, were the most critical complaints the Texas government has received.

“In short, this facility is a health and safety nightmare. The Biden administration is now presiding over the abuse of children,” Abbott told reporters, calling on the White House to immediately shut down the facility.

[End]

No word if Harris was too busy chowing down on Chicago chocolate eclairs to issue a response, but it seems likely given the evidence at hand.

Again, these people are uncaring, inhuman ghouls who view and value these invaders from Central America only as potential future voters, not as human beings. To people like Harris and Biden and Psaki, these illegal immigrants are no more important than a herd of cattle, there to be controlled and corralled and fed so they can eventually perform a specific service for the Democrat party. Nothing more.

Meanwhile, the DHS Secretary is suddenly talking tough. – In a sure sign that the whole catastrophe on the border is starting to poll really badly for the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden administration, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is suddenly starting to talk tough about cracking down on illegal immigration. Check it out:

From the story at the Daily Mail:

Joe Biden’s Homeland Security head is looking to crack down on illegal immigration by taking more legal action against border jumpers and targeting U.S. cities that act as a safe haven for them.

‘I see cases now where we apprehend and remove individuals that I think need to be prosecuted criminally,’ DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said during a virtual town hall with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) employees last week where he also revealed President Biden is considering restarting construction on Donald Trump’s border wall.

‘Quite frankly, I’m going to have to understand why some of these individuals are not subject to a Title 8 USC 1326 case and I intend to work with the DOJ in that regard,’ he added.

Entering the U.S. illegally is a misdemeanor under Title 8 Section 1325. Furthermore, reentering the country after being ousted is a felony under Title 8 Section 1326.

Mayorkas told ICE employees that DHS will also take on so-called sanctuary cities that refuse to work with the agency to turn over illegal immigrants hiding out there.

He also vowed during the meeting, according to notes of the conversation reviewed by the Washington Times, that he is opposed to some more progressive immigration and border protection policies, like the push from the far left to totally abolish ICE.

[End]

Now, understand that this is all just being said purely for public consumption. It’s tough talk designed to buy some time while the administration works to figure out a way to better obscure the issue, not anything they really plan to do to try to address it in any constructive way.

The implication that Mayorkas and this administration are contemplating charging a single one of these immigrants with a misdemeanor – much less a felony – is laughable on its face. We have to remember that these people were actively recruited by American activists sent into their countries by front groups for the Democrat party. What we see happening in our own country today is the intended result of that recruitment effort. Are we really to believe that the Biden people will now suddenly turn on a dime and start sending these very same invaders that they recruited back to their home countries?

Please. This is just classic Democrat misdirection, and Mayorkas isn’t even particularly good at it.

But back to Nikki Haley… – So why, you may ask, is Nikki Haley suddenly popping back up on Fox News and pretending to be concerned about the catastrophe at the border? Why, she’s running for the GOP presidential nomination in 2024, that’s why.

Nikki Haley will become 2024’s version of Jeb! Bush, the well-funded front person for the GOP establishment in Washington DC. She already has her very own political action committee established and money is pouring into it from the very same country club Republican set that filled Jeb!’s tank up with $160 million to waste heading into the 2016 primaries.

That worked out so darn well that they’ve decided to run the exact same strategy all over again with Nikki Haley as its poster child. Why, they’ll probably hire a bunch of the same group of circus clowns to run her campaign and waste all her money for her again as she gets her head handed to her by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, just as Donald Trump handed Jeb!’s head to him.

Oh, this is all going to be so much fun.

That is all.

For Democrats Like Kirsten Gillibrand, Everything is ‘Infrastructure’

Ok, so, Keystone XL is not ‘infrastructure’ in the minds of the depraved Democrats, but this stuff is? – NY Senator and miserably failed presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand got the award for most ridiculous tweet of the day on Wednesday with this little gem:

Paid leave is infrastructure.
Child care is infrastructure.
Caregiving is infrastructure.

Holy crap. You just can’t make this stuff up, folks.

The idiotic tweet naturally attracted an array of pithy responses, but this one is the best:

Perfect.

All pithiness aside, though, it is important to understand exactly what Gillibrand and other Democrats who are offering language to include all manner of social spending priorities of the Democrat party in an “infrastructure” bill that will eventually be moved in congress are doing here: Trying to attach unpopular spending on unpopular programs to a bill whose concept polls well with the public.

Not that paid leave and child care and caregiving aren’t important in our society: The problem with the federal government spending billions of dollars on those things is that they do not poll well. As a result, grasping clowns like Sen. Gillibrand can never get their billions of dollars for vote-buying pork barrel spending approved for such things in a stand-alone bill. The legislative trick they deploy is to attempt to attach language for their unpopular priorities onto bills that are ostensibly focused on popular priorities.

Boom: Child care is suddenly ‘infrastructure.’ See how that works?

As I wrote last week, the ‘infrastructure’ plan submitted by the Biden handlers last week is already less than 25% focused on spending on things we have traditionally defined as ‘infrastructure’ spending. Most of the remainder of the bill is simply massive payoffs to Democrat Party funders in the fake green lobby. By the time any such plan makes its way through both houses of congress it will undoubtedly morph into just another ominbus spending bill with a more popular name.

See, Democrats like to talk about real ‘infrastructure’ spending, but they don’t like to actually spend money on real ‘infrastructure’ projects. Why? Because real ‘infrastructure’ spending doesn’t end up buying them many votes. We have to remember that the ability to spend other people’s money in order to buy votes for their next re-election campaign is the life’s blood of any Democrat politician. It dominates their entire mindset, and devising ways to do it occupies their every waking hour.

Real ‘infrastructure’ projects involve improving and repairing the nation’s dilapidated roads, bridges and other transportation infrastructure, projects in which real people who work at real jobs to make a real living participate. Such people are no longer a significant constituency of the Democrat Party, thanks in large part to the 2016 candidacy of Donald J. Trump. This is why not a single Democrat politician batted a fake eyelash when our Sock Puppet-in-Chief cancelled the Keystone XL pipeline and its 10,000 jobs on his first day in office: Those are blue-collar workers, and the Democrats have written them off in favor of importing a larger, new bloc of future voters from Central America.

Think about it: Why would Democrats want to spend billions on actual, real infrastructure projects and the blue collar jobs associated with them when they can allocate that same money to Green New Deal boondoggles and social spending targeting the suburban white mothers who have become their prized potential voter bloc in red states like Texas?

That’s what Sen. Gillibrand’s idiotic tweet is all about. This is how the Democrat mind really works, and if you think she isn’t serious about what she tweeted, you are in for a very big and expensive surprise.

That is all.

Wednesday News Roundup: Charles Barkley is Right About American Society

Just so you all know, Charles Barkley is right. – Politicians, especially liberal, Democrat politicians, do want us all to hate each other. As I discussed in a piece yesterday, it’s what they thrive on. Dividing people in order to rule them is in fact the entire philosophy of the Democrat Party, and has been since the day of its founding.

Before we go any further, let’s review what Mr. Barkley said during his halftime commentary at the NCAA semi-finals on Saturday:

Here’s an excerpt:

Man, I think most white people and black people are great people. I really believe that in my heart, but I think our system is set up where our politicians, whether they’re Republicans or Democrats, are designed to make us not like each other so they can keep their grasp of money and power. They divide and conquer. I truly believe in my heart most white people and black people are awesome people, but we’re so stupid following our politicians, whether they’re Republicans or Democrats, and their only job is, ‘Hey, let’s make these people not like each other. We don’t live in their neighborhoods, we all got money, let’s make the whites and blacks not like each other, let’s make rich people and poor people not like each other, let’s scramble the middle class. I truly believe that in my heart.

[End]

He’s absolutely right: The vast majority of both white people and black people are in fact great people who love and respect each other as fellow Americans.

I personally witnessed a great example of this at my 10 year-old granddaughter’s basketball game earlier on Saturday. The games are held in a big field house here in our hometown that has a dozen different multi-purpose courts in it. On any given day, there are hundreds of parents, grandparents and friends of the players milling around watching the games, as well as members of teams waiting to play the next game.

The coach of my granddaughter’s team is a young African American guy who is one of the best leaders of kids I’ve ever seen. He commands respect, treats all of them with respect, coaches them up during the games with a sense of humor, and the progress these girls make from game to game is truly amazing. He treats them all exactly the same, including his own daughter, and I doubt any of those girls ever has a second’s thought about what his race happens to be. He’s their coach, and they are really lucky to have him.

That’s a great story in and of itself, a great example of what America really is as opposed to what we see it portrayed as being every night on CNN and MSNBC and Fox News. But that’s just part of the story I saw Saturday.

During the 4th quarter of my granddaughter’s game, one of the teams consisting of what appeared to be 13-14 year old boys that was scheduled to play the next game arrived a little early and were milling around at the end of the court where a bunch of us were sitting in our foldable game chairs. At one point, a black kid was horsing around with a basketball and lost his footing, taking a hard fall in which he hit his head with a loud pop. Within seconds, a group of mothers and grandmothers, some white, some black, had leapt up to help the young man, who had a cut above his right eye and whose eyes were going a little wonky, making me think he might have a concussion.

One of the mothers ran to the reception desk at the entrance to the building and asked the attendant there to call an ambulance, and within another minute or two a nurse who just happened to be there watching one of her own kids play ball – who also happened to be white – arrived to examine and comfort the kid, and did a great job with him until paramedics arrived. No one hesitated for a second to help this kid; no one had a thought about what his race was; no one made any effort to segregate the growing crowd of onlookers along racial lines.

Contrast that to a political class that is so hyper-focused on race that we have the spectacle of Democrat and some Republican governors using racial metrics to determine who gets the COVID vaccine first in their states. It’s appalling.

What I witnessed Saturday was just a group of American parents and grandparents stepping in to help an American kid who was hurt.

That’s what 95% of America really is. To quote Charles Barkley, “most white people and black people are great people.”

Sadly, too many of our politicians come from the other 5%, and that dynamic also goes beyond the political class into the social and traditional media class.

It’s the 5% who are the loudest, most obnoxious and most divisive users of Twitter and Facebook. CNN and MSNBC award platforms to divisive hucksters and buffoons like Don Lemon and Joe Scarborough and Chris Cuomo and Al Sharpton because they know those are the people who will regularly say outrageous and divisive things that attract viewers to their shows and clicks on their websites.

Barkley is absolutely right about the politicians, but it’s too bad he didn’t carry his thoughts over to the media as well, because the media class has become an even more pernicious and divisive influence on our society than the political class.

Think about it: What’s worse, a President who continues to lie about the Georgia voter law despite all of his lies having been thoroughly debunked and exposed, or the corrupt media establishment that continues to pretend his lies – and their own lies – about the law aren’t lies at all?

Biden’s hapless spokesperson, Jen Psaki, was figuratively disrobed during her press briefing yesterday by Peter Doocey on this subject, yet she gamely continued parroting her false talking points about the Georgia law anyway, because it’s all she knows how to do.

Who’s worse, Psaki, or the 30 or so fake journalists in the room who leapt to help her desperately try to change the subject to something else she could lie about?

Who’s worse, a President who continues to lie about the Georgia voter law and now lies about the fact that he did indeed call for MLB to move its All-Star game out of Atlanta, or a corrupt media establishment that dutifully parrots his lies as if they weren’t lies at all?

Here’s an excerpt from that piece at DailyWire:

President Joe Biden refused to call for the Masters Tournament to leave Georgia after pushing for Major League Baseball to boycott the state.

Biden backed off his pro-boycott messaging after he and other Democrats were pinned with the blame for the MLB deciding to move its 2021 All-Star game and rookie draft out of Atlanta. Biden had encouraged the decision days before it was made over election reforms Georgia GOP Gov. Brian Kemp signed into law last month.

“I think that’s up to the Masters,” Biden said when asked if the professional golf tournament should boycott Georgia like the MLB.

“It is reassuring to see that for-profit operations and businesses are speaking up about how these new Jim Crow laws are just antithetical to who we are,” he added.

He went on to note that businesses and events leaving Georgia carries an economic cost. When businesses leave Georgia, “the people who need the help the most, the people who are making hourly wages sometimes get hurt the most.”

Oh, you think? Maybe that’s something you and the corpulent huckster Stacey Abrams should have thought of before you called for MLB to make its move out of 51% Black Atlanta to Denver, one of the most lilly-white cities in America.

Charles Barkley is right: Most white people and black people are indeed great people. Unfortunately, the people in our society with the loudest voices and biggest platforms from which to use them are not.

That is all.

Tuesday News Roundup: MLB Sells Out Atlanta as the Texas Rangers Sell Out Their Ballpark

They’re so demented that they put a mask on the freakin’ Easter bunny. – I kid you not, at Saturday’s annual White House Easter egg hunt, China Joe and his weirdo wife Jill Si Se Pwadwe Biden put a COVID mask on the Easter bunny:

May be an image of 1 person and standing

Note that China Joe even had to have note cards to be able to talk to children on Easter.

You just can’t make this stuff up, folks. You can’t.

Look for the Little Menace to Society, Anthony Fauci, to be whining about ‘Super-spreaders in Texas’ today…. – The Texas Rangers almost sold out their stadium on Monday – more than 38,000 fans were reportedly on-hand in a 40,000 seat stadium to see the terrible team the cheapskate owners are fielding this year lose badly to the Toronto Blue Jays.

Despite an edict from the team that fans must wear masks unless eating or drinking the highly over-priced food, almost none were wearing masks and none of the stadium ushers or security personnel could be seen saying a word to them. It was absolutely glorious.

May be an image of one or more people and crowd

Meanwhile, in Waco, thousands of fans of the Baylor Bears basketball team gathered in the school’s football stadium to watch the basketball national championship game. They all sat closely together in the stands, mostly without masks, and rushed the field together after the game ended in a Baylor win over Gonzaga:

It will be interesting to see how Anthony Fauci, in his role of chief COVID propagandist for this Soviet-style administration and its state-run news media, responds here. In his regular appearances on the Sunday weekend fake news programs, his emphasis was surprisingly on the belief that the vaccination program – for which he is now falsely taking credit – is working and the country will likely avoid a “4th wave” of the virus that others on the administration’s COVID propaganda team are out there predicting.

Will he lecture Texas, which has seen its COVID cases fall dramatically since Governor Abbott decided to ignore Fauci’s edicts in early March, on risking such events becoming ‘super-spreaders?’ He made the same false predictions about the Super Bowl in February and spring break beach gatherings in Florida and is risking now becoming perceived as the boy who cried wolf one too many times if he continues this line of propaganda, so maybe not.

As President Trump likes to say, we’ll see what happens.

Speaking of The Little Menace to Society, this is a situation he really should be taking full credit for. – Mask Nazis are everywhere in our society now, mask-shaming people in order to signal their own virtue and feel better about themselves. Here’s a clip of one Mask Nazi who works for Spirit Airlines running a family off of a plane because their 2 year-old daughter – who was eating – didn’t have a mask on:

A pox on all these people, and the Little Menace who gave them license for such behavior. They are among the worst people in our society today.

Speaking of the worst people in our society today, let’s talk about the FBI. – Asche Scow at DailyWire.com has a really good piece about the fact that the FBI has now been utterly corrupted by Obama loyalist Democrats in its ranks and is now simply a tool whose mission appears to be to persecute Republicans while letting Democrats skate, a reality I’ve been writing about for years now.

Here’s an excerpt:

What is the FBI’s main purpose now? Because outside of some great investigative work that gets little national attention, the bureau increasingly seems to be used as a federal weapon aimed primarily at Republicans, generally protecting Democrats while leaking any detail of ongoing investigations that could damage the GOP.

The latest example relates to an FBI investigation into a political ally of Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), during which allegations were made against Gaetz accusing him of having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl, whom he allegedly paid to travel with him. The New York Times reported on the investigation, quoting three, anonymous “people briefed” on the investigation. Gaetz has denied the allegations. Maybe there’s something there and maybe there isn’t, but no matter the outcome, the way the investigation was reported appeared, at least in part, politically motivated.

RedState’s Bonchie addressed the problematic aspects of the Times’ recent Gaetz piece:

Really, it should bother everyone, no matter their feelings on Gaetz, that the FBI can just leak something like this, to attack someone in such a blatantly political way. When you are facing an anonymous allegation, you can’t respond to it in any effective manner. Just last night, the reporter behind the Times story appeared on Rachel Maddow’s show and countered Gaetz’s claim about the man he named, yet she did so offering no proof whatsoever. These games are rigged, and you aren’t supposed to be able to defend yourself.

This is the same tactic media outlets took during the FBI’s investigation into whether former President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign colluded with Russia to “steal” the election. That investigation ultimately found no evidence of such collusion, but that didn’t stop media outlets from publishing thousands of articles over a two-year period featuring quotes from “sources familiar with the matter.”

[End]

For the record, I have no idea of Matt Gaetz is guilty or innocent of the behavior he has been accused of by our disgraceful FBI/Justice Department and the corrupt propaganda media, but do agree with Scow that the manner in which this story has been leaked is utterly despicable

Go read the rest. You’ll be glad you did.

And speaking of Major League Baseball… – The cowards who run MLB appear to have found a new home for their annual All-Star game:

So, here’s the thing to understand about this story: The main reason why MLB decided not to hold the All-Star game in Atlanta was because of a new voter law the legislature passed requiring those using mail-in ballots to provide the same sort of voter ID that in-person voters have always been required to show when voting in that state. Got that? Georgia’s voters have lived with a voter ID requirement literally forever, but the Democrat Party discovered a way to get around that last year, by having millions of mail-in ballots mailed to everyone in the state, and they don’t want to give up that easy ticket to massive voter fraud.

That is what this is about.

Ok, so, clearly Colorado doesn’t have such a voter ID requirement, right?

Uh, well, not exactly. As reported at RedState.com, Colorado has a similar provision in place:

Here’s an excerpt from that story:

Colorado also requires that a voter provide identification to vote – including in some instances of voting by mail. When voting by mail for the first time they may have to provide a photocopy of their identification with their return ballot, which seems extremely burdensome for people who don’t have a scanner or a printer at home.

In case the screenshot isn’t readable, here are the documents the Colorado Secretary of State lists as acceptable forms of identification:

  • A valid Colorado driver’s license or valid identification card issued by the Colorado Department of Revenue. (Note:  documents issued to not lawfully present and temporarily lawfully present individuals under Part 5 of Article 2 of Title 42, C.R.S. are not acceptable forms of identification.)
  • A valid U.S. passport.
  • A valid employee identification card with a photograph of the eligible elector issued by any branch, department, agency, or entity of the U.S. government or of Colorado, or by any county, municipality, board, authority, or other political subdivision of Colorado.
  • A valid pilot’s license issued by the federal aviation administration or other authorized agency of the U.S.
  • A valid U.S. military identification card with a photograph of the eligible elector.
  • A copy of a current (within the last 60 days) utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document that shows the name and address of the elector.
  • A Certificate of Degree of Indian or Alaskan Native Blood.
  • A valid Medicare or Medicaid card issued by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
  • A certified copy of a U.S. birth certificate for the elector.
  • Certified documentation of naturalization.
  • A valid student identification card with a photograph of the eligible elector issued by an institute of higher education in Colorado, as defined in section 23-3.1-102(5), C.R.S..
  • A valid veteran identification card issued by the U.S. department of veterans affairs veterans health administration with a photograph of the eligible elector.
  • A valid identification card issued by a federally recognized tribal government certifying tribal membership.

But, Colorado won’t accept “any document produced by Colorado’s statewide voter registration system” as proof of identification, and it won’t accept expired driver’s licenses.

[End]

Oh.

Another stated reason for moving the game was complaints by Stacey Abrams that Georgia doesn’t provide enough days for early voting. Well, guess what? As you can see from the graphic below, Georgia provides more early voting days than Colorado does:

Oh.

Naturally, articles from CNN, ESPN and other corrupt, Soviet-style media outlets fail to include those details, because reporting the truth is not their mission.

You just could never make this stuff up. Not in a million, billion, gazillion years.

That is all.

60 Minutes’ Smear Job on Ron DeSantis Collapses

60 Minutes provided a prime example of the utter corruption of our nation’s media establishment on Sunday with a smear of Ron DeSantis. – In the story, 60 Minutes fake reporter Sharon Alfonsi accused the Florida Governor of engaging in a “pay for play” scheme in which the Publix chain of pharmacy/grocery stores was awarded a contract to become a distributor of the various COVID vaccines in exchange for a $100,000 contribution to the DeSantis gubernatorial campaign in 2018. 60 Minutes made no effort to explain how, in 2018 when the contribution was made, anyone at Publix could have known about a pandemic that would take place in 2020, but hey, this is fake news we’re talking about here – logic and facts play no role. Only the fake narrative matters.

Alfonsi’s piece included film taken during a DeSantis presser in which she accused the Governor and he gave a full and complete answer. Naturally, Alfonsi and her editors at 60 Minutes carefully edited the clip in order to eliminate all of the actual facts of what happened. Take a look:

Publix, naturally outraged, responded to the 60 Minutes smear job with the following statement:

“The irresponsible suggestion that there was a connection between campaign contributions made to Governor DeSantis and our willingness to join other pharmacies in support of the state’s vaccine distribution efforts is absolutely false and offensive,” the supermarket company said on Monday in a statement. “We are proud of our pharmacy associates for administering more than 1.5 million doses of vaccine to date and for joining other retailers in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia to do our part to help our communities emerge from the pandemic.”

Meanwhile, the 60 Minutes smear has created such public outrage in Florida that even Democrats are coming to the Governor’s defense. First, Jared Moskowitz, a Democrat who is serving his 3rd term as Director of the Florida Division of Emergency Management, issued this tweet excoriating CBS for its intentionally false smear job:

Next, Dave Kerner, the Democrat Mayor of Palm Beach County, issued this statement blasting the corrupt 60 Minutes/CBS crew for its false reporting: “The reporting was not just based on bad information — it was intentionally false. I know this because I offered to provide my insight into Palm Beach County’s vaccination efforts and 60 minutes declined,” Kerner declared. “They know that the Governor came to Palm Beach County and met with me and the County Administrator and we asked to expand the state’s partnership with Publix to Palm Beach County. We also discussed our own local plans to expand mass vaccinations centers throughout the county, which the Governor has been incredibly supportive. We asked and he delivered. They had that information, and they left it out because it kneecaps their narrative.”

Oof.

Note that Kerner had volunteered to be interviewed by Alfonsi, but she refused to talk to him, knowing he would destroy the divisive narrative she was trying to create:

You want to know why I have been writing for 25 years that the utterly corrupt, Soviet-style fake news media establishment is the single greatest threat to our country’s survival? This smear job, designed to divide the people of Florida, is a textbook case.

It is crucial to understand that CBS News and Alfonsi created this false narrative out of whole cloth in an effort to benefit their masters in the Democrat Party. There is simply no question that DeSantis has run circles around all other governors of big population states in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, repeatedly going against the official guidance coming from Anthony Fauci and the CDC ghouls while doing so. Florida’s numbers of cases and death rate from the viral gift from China have vastly out-performed the records of blue states that have slavishly conformed to the federal edicts, and that makes the Democrats quite uncomfortable, especially given Andrew Cuomo’s ongoing scandals and the recall efforts being mounted against Gavin Newsom and Christine Whitmer.

Even worse for the Democrats, DeSantis’s performance under pressure during the COVID crisis has made him the obvious successor to Donald Trump as the GOP’s 2024 presidential nominee. This reality makes him the prime Republican target for media smears like this one on behalf of the Democrats.

Because of this competing dynamic between red states and blue states, the corrupt propaganda media has spent the last year making up a series of false narratives about Florida’s performance in efforts to damage DeSantis, culminating in this despicable smear by 60 Minutes. They do this for one simple reason: The Democrat Party demands it. It’s the same reason why the media mounted a set of smears defaming Texas Governor Greg Abbott when he rescinded his idiotic, useless mask mandate in early March.

The philosophy of the Democrat Party has always, from its very founding, been to divide this country in order to rule it. That’s why it created the Ku Klux Klan following the Civil War, it’s why Lincoln was murdered, it’s why every “great” Democrat president in history has been a highly-divisive figure and it’s why it created BLM and Antifa to serve as its domestic terror apparatus.

The mission of corrupt, Soviet-style propaganda outlets like CBS News, CNN and MSNBC is to serve their Democrat Party masters by keeping us as divided as possible. That’s why they represent a clear and present existential threat to our country.

That is all.

Welcome to the Corporate Socialist States of America, Comrades

“Corporate socialism. That’s where we’re headed.”

My uncle Thad saw this all coming 25 years ago, only I didn’t realize it at the time. He would throw that statement out there every time I visited him at the family ranch in Goliad County, Texas, but when I’d ask him to explain exactly what he meant, he’d just go off on a tangent and never come back to it.

Thad was an interesting guy, a really intelligent guy who chose to spend the last 30 years of his life living as a hermit in the ranch house that sat atop a hill. There, he had a 360 degree view of nothing but plowed fields and South Texas brush country filled with huisatche, mesquite and prickly pear cactus as far as the eye could see, which was basically all the way out to Berclair, 7 miles to the East. Thad seldom left that perch during the last quarter century of his life, which meant that anyone who went to visit him had best be prepared to sit at his little kitchen table for about four hours drinking coffee and enjoy a stewed tomato and Miracle Whip sandwich or two with a chaser of Oreo cookies while he told stories.

There were always two or three places during those conversations at which Thad would impart some nugget of wisdom and insight, but you had to be listening closely to catch it – if your attention span wavered during the other 3 hours and 56 minutes of story telling, you might just miss it. So maybe I made that mistake at some point or another when he actually did explain what he meant by “Corporate socialism” – I’ll never know for sure, since Thad passed away about 15 years ago.

But over the past several years I’ve come to realize exactly what he was foreseeing way back in 1995 or so, as the power of multi-national corporations over the lives of ordinary Americans has steadily advanced over time, exploding exponentially over just the last year.

It all started back when Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger went to China in 1972, establishing diplomatic relations with that sleeping communist giant for the first time. With that act, whether they understood it at the time or not, Nixon and Kissinger set in motion a long chain of events that has evolved today to the point at which China now essentially runs the U.S. government through the influence of giant multi-national corporations.

It is just a reality today that the entire Democrat Party and a large swath of the GOP are nothing more than wholly-owned subsidiaries of the communist Chinese government. This was the essence of what Donald Trump came into office to fight against, and he had initial success, striking new trade deals, invoking targeted tariffs and using the influence and power of the U.S. government to push back against Chinese hegemony not just in the United States, but all over the globe.

But ultimately, the corporate interests in this country proved too powerful for one man fighting almost alone to overcome. A tariff on China is little more than a tax on gigantic corporations like AT&T, Viacom, Apple, Disney, Amazon, Wal-Mart, Google, Facebook, Twitter, General Motors, Tesla, Ford, the NBA, the NFL, Major League Baseball and on and on and on. You name a major corporation ostensibly based in the United States, and I will show you a corporation whose revenue stream today is highly reliant on the Chinese market. These corporations could not abide any president who threatened to upset their multi-trillion dollar sellout of our country, so they threw in with the Democrats and their never-ending coup d’etat efforts to destroy him.

To the trained eye, this corporate influence is especially visible in our media/entertainment sector. All of your television networks and movie companies are slavishly tied to the Chinese market today, which is why they all slant their fake news and film scripts to include approved messaging of the ChiCom government. Indeed, this is why CNN and MSNBC, despite losing hundreds of millions of dollars every year, can continue to exist as subsidiaries of giant corporations Comcast and AT&T. Sure, they lose money in an isolated sense, but by spreading the ChiCom message to ordinary Americans, they make their parent companies billions in profits that far outweigh their inability to pay their own bills.

Television and film producers happily submit their scripts for careful rewriting by communist Chinese censors in order to have access to the Chinese market. “News” organizations like CNN, MSNBC and the major networks actively censor any reports that might reflect negatively on the ChiCom government.

The social media giants are even more outrageous in their conduct, knowing as they do that the U.S. Justice Department has been completely corrupted at this point and will do nothing to police their monopolistic behavior by enforcing the nation’s anti-trust laws. Thus, we saw the spectacle during the last election campaign of Facebook, Twitter and Google all banding together to actively censor the story about Hunter Biden’s laptop, a campaign of outright censorship they continue to this day with zero consequence from anyone in law enforcement.

That act of Soviet-style censorship and history revision was not just an act of partisanship in favor of the Democrats: It was also an act on behalf of China, designed to deny the public accurate information about the Biden family’s illicit dealings with the ChiCom government.

Make no mistake: This is not just limited to the traditional and social media world. Over the past year, multi-national corporations have played a leading role in helping Anthony Fauci and Democrat governors around the country destroy the free-market economy in our country under the rubric of COVID response. Governor Greg Abbott may lift his statewide mask order, but that doesn’t mean you won’t still have to wear your mask to the local Wal-Mart or Target. You can trust these huge corporations to cooperate fully with the Democrats to extend these restrictions on your freedoms for as long as they possibly can, because that’s what the ChiCom government wants to happen to our country. It is incredibly naïve to think otherwise at this point.

These giant corporations beholden to China don’t just lobby congress anymore, they run the place. They actively write the laws and have their lobbyists hand the bills to congressional staffers who are incapable of doing that work anymore, and those staffers then write a one-pager of 5-7 talking points for the members to use to describe what is in the bill. That is exactly how the process works in Washington, DC today, and has for the last 20-25 years or so.

All these hearings held by congressional committees in which corporate leaders are called to testify? They’re nothing more than political Kabuki theater at this point, carried out for public consumption and nothing else. Think about it: When was the last time you saw any action of real consequence come about as a result of one of those hearings?

Hell, Eric Swalwell was revealed to have carried on a years-long affair with a honeypot ChiCom spy in December, and Nancy Pelosi just let him keep his seat on the Homeland Security Committee, with the entire Democrat caucus fiercely defending him against attacks from Republicans. It turns out that having an affair with a Chinese spy is now a badge of honor in the Democrat Party.

And it isn’t limited to Washington. States like Georgia that just experienced a massive degree of fraud in the 2020 election can’t even pass legislation without these giant corporate interests exerting influence to cost them billions of dollars under false pretenses. That’s what happened in the decision by Major League Baseball to cancel the holding of its annual All-Star Game and draft in Atlanta this year. The players, owners and managers didn’t vote to do that: That decision was made by cowardly Commissioner Rob Manfred under tremendous pressure from multi-national corporate interests like Delta Airlines, American Airlines, Coca-Cola, Budweiser and others with huge business interests in China.

Thus, we see this Corporate Socialism now extending its Washington, DC influence into the states. All of it – every bit of it – is designed to protect the priorities of Democrats and RINO Republicans who are in the pockets of the ChiCom government.

So, if you’ve been worried that America was about to become a socialist country as the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden administration runs rampant over your civil rights as Americans, you need worry no longer, because we are already there.

Welcome to the Corporate Socialist States of America, comrades. Sadly, Uncle Thad was right.

That is all.

Monday News Roundup: Chris Christie Lambasts Biden as a “Liar” and “Hypocrite” in Epic Rant on ABC

In his Easter message on Sunday, China Joe Biden did not mention Christianity or Jesus Christ one time, but mentioned COVID-19, the Democrat Party’s new religion, 7 times. That’s all you need to know about that.

Meanwhile, Georgia’s new senator, the “Reverend” Raphael Warnock, issued a wholly blasphemous tweet on Easter Sunday, and then thought better of it and deleted it:

Image

Hey, at least he didn’t mention the viral gift from China, so we got that going for us.

Over on ABC [fake] News, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie basically caused a lying Democrat activist to go into convulsions on set when he repeatedly corrected her lies defending the lies China Joe has been spreading about the Georgia voting law.

From the story at the Daily Caller:

Former Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie lashed out at President Joe Biden during a Sunday morning appearance on ABC’s “This Week.”

Christie and former Democratic Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel butted heads during a panel discussion over Georgia’s election law, and Christie accused Biden of doing the same things he had accused former President Donald Trump of doing.

Emanuel responded to the law first, claiming that it was an unnecessary effort to find a solution to a problem that did not actually exist and arguing that it was an end run around elections that would allow the state legislature to overrule a secretary of state if the majority did not like the results of an election.

“If Donald Trump won Georgia, there would be no change in the law,” Emanuel said.

[End]

Before we go on with this, note the argument Emanuel just used there, that this law would allow the state legislature to determine voting processes in the state. Guess what? The Constitution unambiguously states that voting processes in any state are to be determined by the… wait for it…state legislature!

This is now where the Democrats have come on this: Having had their blatant lies about the content of the law fully exposed, they now have circled around to claiming it is somehow unnecessary, and somehow a novel concept in that it puts the legislature in charge of determining voting procedures, which is what the Constitution requires.

Despicable people. Horrible human beings. Ghouls.

The article continues:

Fellow panelist Sarah Isgur Flores interrupted, saying that the Biden administration had claimed the new law would end early voting, which it did not.

Christie pushed back as well, claiming that the Biden administration had intentionally mischaracterized what was actually in the law.

“It expands early voting, George, and the president said it ended it. Listen, here’s what Joe Biden’s got to live with when he wakes up this morning on Easter morning. He is doing exactly what he sat around in the campaign and the transition and accused Donald Trump of doing,” Christie said. “He is lying to cause racial divisions in this country. That’s what he accused Donald Trump of doing and he’s a liar and a hypocrite.”

[End]

Why yes, yes he is.

As pointed out in another piece by Redstate.com this morning, Christie went on to pants a third corrupt Democrat toady who Stephanopoulous had stacked his panel with:

ABC News “This Week” anchor George Stephanopoulos had a panel of guests on this morning to discuss “the latest fallout” from the law including the MLB caving to woke mobs and pulling the game. One of his guests was former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who was clearly incensed by what Biden was doing and set about to point out some inconvenient truths during the segment.

When asked by Stephanopoulos if the MLB “made the right move” with their decision, Christie instead took direct aim at Biden for being a raging hypocrite who promised unity and healing but instead was delivering needless division:

And I hate to come in here this morning to say this because I sat here and listened to the president’s inaugural address. And I just want a couple of real quick points from it.

“Politics need not be a raging fire that destroys everything in its path. Every disagreement doesn’t have to be a cause for total war, and we must reject a culture in which facts themselves are manipulated or made up.”

And Joe Biden’s broken his own rule, 84 days. And now, he’s lying to the American people, George. He’s lying about this bill. He’s lying to the American people about it to cause the raging fire he said he was going to put out. I’m very disappointed.

Stephanopoulos then turned to Democracy for America CEO Yvette Simpson, who proclaimed the 17 days that the Georgia bill allowed for early voting was not enough. “I think that, you know, what do we need to do to make sure early voting gets expanded. Seventeen days is not enough early voting,” she said

If that’s the case, Christie wondered, then why was Stacey Abrams praising New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) for allowing 9 days of early voting in his state at the same time she called Georgia’s law “Jim Crow 2.0“?

Well, Stacey Abrams, by the way, Stacey Abrams was in New Jersey, in my state, praising Phil Murphy this week for a voting law where New Jersey early voting is nine days. Half, half of what Georgia is.

Yet she’s on TV in New Jersey — I saw it myself — saying that this is one of the greatest voting expansion bills we’ve ever seen, but this is Jim Crow? I’m sorry, George.

Watch:

[End]

I don’t generally have much use for Chris Christie, but he did a bangup job on Sunday. He does have his moments.

Meanwhile, down here in Texas… – the numbers of COVID cases and deaths just continue to plummet since Governor Greg Abbott ended his useless mask mandate, much to the chagrin of the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden administration’s evil minions:

From the story at the Washington Examiner:

The state of Texas hit a record low for COVID-19 cases three weeks after Gov. Greg Abbott lifted the state’s virus restrictions and mask mandate.

“Today the 7-day Covid positivity rate dropped to a new recorded low: 4.95%,” Abbott announced on Twitter, while also noting that hospitalization had also dropped to a “6 months low.”

“This week we have 1 million 1st vaccines available,” Abbott continued. “Everyone now qualifies for a shot. They are highly recommended to prevent getting Covid but always voluntary.”

The news comes just three weeks after Abbott made the controversial move to lift most of the state’s pandemic restrictions, allowing businesses to operate at 100% capacity. The Republican governor also lifted the state’s mask mandate, though businesses could still require customers to wear masks voluntarily.

“I just announced Texas is OPEN 100%,” Abbott tweeted earlier this month. “EVERYTHING. I also ended the statewide mask mandate.”

Abbot’s move to completely open the state was controversial, with politicians and some health experts warning that the state could be heading for disaster.

[End]

Yes, Democrat politicians like Joaquin Castro and health “experts” like the Little Menace to Society Anthony Fauci did line up to issue dire warnings predicting impending doom when the Governor lifted his order, because they all have a vested interest in seeing ordinary Americans losing their constitutional rights into perpetuity. What has happened instead has been exactly the opposite of what they all, to a person, predicted would happen.

There is an object lesson in there somewhere. Wonder what it could be?

Speaking of lying Democrat politicians… – You may remember that China Joe and weirdo wife, Si Se Pwadwe Jill warned us all not to travel over the Easter weekend to be with your families for fear of DYING AND KILLING EVERYONE ELSE YOU COME INTO CONTACT WITH! AAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

Ok, maybe they didn’t use all-caps, but the message was there, wasn’t it? Sure it was.

So, what did China Joe and his weirdo wife, Si Se Pwadwe Jill do over the weekend? Why, they traveled. To Camp David. To spend the Holiday with their family:

From the story at Redstate.com:

Rules for thee but not for me.

As many people are celebrating Easter today, Joe Biden had been urging against gatherings, saying in March that his goal would be for people to get together for “small family gatherings” perhaps by the Fourth of July to hold barbecues and normal celebrations.

“By July the Fourth there’s a good chance you, your families and friends will be able to get together in your backyard or in your neighborhood and have a cookout or a barbecue and celebrate Independence Day,” Biden said.

“That doesn’t mean large events with lots of people together, but it does mean small groups will be able to get together. After this long hard year, it will make this Independence Day something truly special, where we not only mark our independence as a nation, but we begin to mark our independence from this virus.”

He reiterated that on April 2.

So reporters naturally asked Jen Psaki who would Biden be getting together with at Camp David?

Her response was curt and dismissive.

“He obviously has a wife he’s been married to for some time. He has a couple of grandkids who he sees when he goes to Delaware. But it’s a limited group, and certainly not the big Irish Biden clan that many of you have seen throughout the course of his time in public office.”

[End]

But wait, there’s more !

It gets even better. Check this out:

She was asked if all his immediate family had been vaccinated and she refused to answer the question saying she doesn’t have any more updates about his family. She doesn’t actually define whether it’s just immediate family or not. He had been going back to Delaware most weekends so far and visiting family there.

Biden even used his “Easter message” to push getting vaccinated, inserting a government message in a purportedly religious wish.

[End]

The word “hypocrite” does not even begin to describe these people. They are the worst people in our society. What’s the word for that?

That is all.

Saturday News Roundup: Major League Baseball is led by Cowards

I guess I’m confused here.

Major League Baseball announced Friday that it will move this year’s All Star Game out of Atlanta in a direct surrender to the cancel culture crowd that is outright lying about a voting procedures bill passed by the Georgia legislature. In announcing this pathetic act of cowardice, MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said that the move was was “the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport”, and said it was taken after consultation with the sport’s cowardly owners, managers and current and former players.

So, what exactly are the “values” of MLB at this point? They certainly have nothing to do with voting rights. After all, the Georgia bill actually expands voting rights in the state, adding additional days for early voting and more hours for the polls to remain open. Those “values” certainly have nothing to do with honesty, or courage, or standing up to bullies, given that MLB just caved in a cowardly manner into outright lies about this law coming from the bullies in the Perpetual Outrage Mob and the corrupt national news media.

What about racism – is MLB taking a stand against that by refusing to hold a single all-star game in a state that wants to require a voter to produce identification in order to vote? Not really, no. After all, MLB has held multiple all-star games in Texas, where voter ID has always been required in most circumstances. It has held all-star games in several other states that have always required an ID to vote.

And if a voter ID requirement is suddenly “racist,” how do we explain new polls from multiple leftist organizations that show such a provision being supported by more than 70% of the U.S. population, including majorities of Blacks, Hispanics and … wait for it … even Democrats?

Also, if MLB is taking a stand against supposed “racism” here, how can the league possibly still, in the year 2021, allow the team in Atlanta to continue carrying the name “Braves,” after decades of protests against that moniker by leftist Indian protest groups who claim that the name is racist? Indeed, if MLB won’t play its All Star Game in Atlanta, why then is it planning to allow this anti-Indian racist baseball team to play 81 home games in the very same city this year?

What does all of that reality say about the “values” of MLB and Rob Manfred?

It says they’re a bunch of money-grubbing cowards who are afraid to take a stand against the real bullies in American society today. That’s what it says about them and their “values.”

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: Biden Wants Fauci to Ruin Baseball as AOC Whines About his Fake Infrastructure Plan

No amount of spending is ever enough for the communist Democrats. – The standard excuse the communist Democrats have deployed for the last half century to explain the abject failure of Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society socialist welfare state to reduce poverty or make any aspect of life better for the nation’s poor is that we just didn’t spend enough money on it. No matter how many trillions of dollars America spent on these socialist/communist schemes, it was never enough. If only we’d just spend more.

Now here comes China Joe Biden, having already spent $2 trillion on a new set of wasteful federal boondoggles in his fake “COVID relief” bill and proposing to spend another $3 trillion on his fake “Infrastructure bill”. Not surprisingly, the current set of outright communist Democrats is now using the same excuse to explain in advance how all of this spending will also miserably fail to make anyone’s life even a little bit better.

Cue Socialist Barbie, i.e., Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, to give us the details:

From the story at RedState.com:

Democrats are like children: give them an inch and they’ll do their best to take a mile. Tack on “Socialist” after “Democrat” and lying spoiled children people like New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will do their best to not only take a mile; they’ll also attempt to guilt you into giving them at least two more miles.

You know, so they can “compassionately” “invest” (increase the national debt, federal income taxes, and whatever else it takes to spend more confiscated or borrowed money) in government-dependent programs for the “underserved” among us.

Incidentally, only 22 percent or roughly $422 billion of the $1.9 trillion COVID “stimulus” bill was earmarked for COVID relief checks to individuals.

So more than $4 trillion later and counting, AOC is not a happy socialist camper about Biden’s (miserly, by her “standards”) infrastructure “investment” in America, which apparently doesn’t include enough taxpayer money earmarked for ballooning the federal government even bigger and making even more Americans dependent on it. 

Clearly, “this is not nearly enough,” tweeted the noted math wizard and acclaimed expert on federal government spending. It “needs to be way bigger,” she whined.

“This is not nearly enough. The important context here is that it’s $2.25T spread out over 10 years. For context, the COVID package was $1.9T for this year *alone,* with some provisions lasting 2 years. Needs to be way bigger.”

[End]

Of course it’s not enough. No amount of other people’s money is ever enough to fill the voracious appetite of these communist Democrats. Biden could propose an $8 trillion plan, and the communist talking points would still be the same. It’s the most predictable thing in the world.

AOC never disappoints.

Nothing triggers the leftist Perpetual Outrage Mob like a Republican governor showing off his guns… – …or when he indicates he might not be getting his COVID vaccination at an event that would be televised. That’s what Florida Governor Ron DeSantis did on Wednesday at a press conference:

From the story at the Daily Caller:

Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said Wednesday that he is planning to get vaccinated after becoming eligible Monday, but does not know if it will be on camera.

“I became eligible on Monday. I haven’t had it yet, but I’m planning on doing it this week,” the 42-year old governor said following the state’s decision to lower the age threshold to 40, The Orlando Sentinel reported.

“I’m not sure we’re gonna do it on camera. If you guys want a gun show, maybe we could do it, but probably better off not,” DeSantis said jokingly, flexing his bicep. “We’re looking forward to do it.”

[End]

Naturally, liberal morons all over Twitter squealed about the Governor’s use of the term “gun show.” Because of course they did.

You just could never make this stuff up, folks.

China Joe wants Anthony Fauci to ruin the baseball season, too. – I kid you not, that’s the essence of what China Joe Biden said when he was asked about baseball season opening up today, and the plan by the Texas Rangers to allow their home stadium to be opened up to full capacity of 40,000 fans, who would still be idiotically required to wear their useless masks.

From the story at the Dallas Morning News:

As part of an interview with ESPN’s Sage Steele, President Joe Biden spoke about major league baseball teams opening up their stadiums to fans to begin the 2021 season.

Biden re-iterated the importance of wearing masks and continuing to follow health-and-safety protocols, and called into question the Texas Rangers’ decision to open Globe Life Field at full capacity on Opening Day.

“Well, that’s a decision they made. I think it’s a mistake,” Biden said. “They should listen to Dr. [Anthony] Fauci, the scientists and the experts. But I think it’s not responsible.”

[End]

Indeed, China Joe doesn’t approve of anything Texas is doing related to COVID these days, having referred to the decision by Governor Greg Abbott to lift the state’s idiotic mask requirement 22 days ago as “neanderthal thinking.”

But here’s the thing: The number of Texas deaths and cases has declined every single day since that decision was made, while blue states who have maintained their draconian restrictions – New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Minnesota, etc. – have experienced a actual increase. But of course, Biden’s a Democrat who wants to perpetuate this COVID crisis for as long as he possibly can, so that’s really the issue here, isn’t it?

And if the Rangers were to listen to Fauci as the Sock Puppet-in-Chief advises, they’d have to change their plans every day as Fauci contradicts what he said yesterday. Fauci is a menace to our society, a rank propagandist who is in no way, shape or form a “scientist,” and it is long past time we all quit listening to anyone who claims otherwise.

Thanks to the Texas Rangers organization for having the guts to lead the way forward.

Let’s play ball!

That is all.

The Media Brainwashing About the Biden Fake Infrastructure Plan has Begun

The corrupt, Soviet-style, state-run media is all in on the $3 trillion Biden infrastructure plan. – The great Mollie Hemingway captured the essence of the media’s slavish, lapdog reaction to the Sock Puppet-in-Chief’s announcement yesterday in this tweet:

Everything about that New York Times headline is an outright lie, a Biden administration narrative parroted by leftist stooges who spend their days posing as journalists. Enlarge that chart on the left of the page and what you see is not a focus on “jobs, roads and growth,” but on payoffs to the Democrat Party’s supporters in the green lobby and its favored constituents who are dependent on government largesse.

Take the chart on “Transportation” as a prime example. Here’s what you see:

Electric Vehicle Incentives – An incredible $174 BILLION for you to subsidize the 1% of the upper class who purchase expensive EVs. Astonishing. This is the second-largest number in the entire plan.

Roads and Bridges – This seemingly positive provision comes in at $115 billion. But understand that, as I explained in yesterday’s News Roundup, most of this money will not go to repairing and expanding the nation’s crumbling road and bridge infrastructure, but instead will go to adding things like bicycle and bus lanes that are designed to make it more difficult for you to access these roads and bridges with your personal cars.

And here’s the thing: The National Association of Manufacturers estimates that we have become so far backlogged in repairing our nation’s road and bridge infrastructure that we really need to spend about 8 times this $115 billion over the next 10 years just to get the job done. Instead, Biden plans to spend a pinprick of that amount. Because, repeat after me, this is not an infrastructure plan.

Public Transit – Hey, more spending on buses and trains that nobody rides! Great idea! $85 billion.

Passenger and freight railways – And another $80 billion on trains and railroads. Actually, if this number focused on vastly expanding freight railways in order to take 18 wheelers off the interstate highways, it would be a true benefit to our society. But you can be certain that most of this money will instead go to even more subsidization of Amtrak, which has been basically bankrupt since the 1970s, and to prop up massively wasteful boondoggles like California’s railway to nowhere, which is already about 10,000% over its initial budget.

Those are the top 4 items under “Transportation,” totaling a whopping $452 billion over 10 years. Maybe 1/10th of that number will go to actually fixing dilapidated infrastructure. Maybe.

Let’s take a look at “Buildings and Utilities,” shall we?

Affordable Housing – An incredible $213 billion goes to a dramatic expansion of a social welfare program that has failed since the Great Depression.

High Speed Broadband – $100 billion. Another dramatic expansion of social welfare.

Electric Grid and Clean Energy – A $100 billion payoff to the fake green lobby.

Public Schools – Another $100 billion. I’m old enough to remember when public education and the building and maintenance of public schools was a power left to the states. Here’s your federal takeover.

It is only after that initial $513 billion of planned payoffs to Democrat constituencies that you get to some actual “infrastructure” spending. Surreal.

Now we have something called “Jobs and Innovation,” whatever that means to this evil administration. Here are some of the provisions included in this catch-all category:

National Science Foundation – $50 billion for what, exactly? Oh, hey, guess what is a big part of the NSF’s budget? If you guessed Anthony Fauci’s National Institutes for Health slush fund, you win the prize. Guess where most of this $50 billion will be going? It isn’t hard.

Semiconductor Industry – A $50 billion payoff to the Big Tech monopolies who helped fix the election last year.

Clean Energy Manufacturing – Another $46 billion Easter Egg for the fake green lobby.

Climate TechnologyAnother $35 billion Easter Egg – they’re everywhere in this plan.

Bottom line: You are going to be utterly brainwashed by our Soviet-style corrupt media establishment over the next month or two to accept this absolute travesty of a plan as the solution to all of our problems with “roads and bridges.” That will be the focus of the joint Democrat/media narrative that will be shoved down your throats.

But the truth is that this plan has pretty close to nothing in it that will improve the quality of our nation’s transportation infrastructure for individual drivers. In fact, there is far more money in this plan that is designed to intentionally make your daily commutes vastly more difficult in order to satisfy the demands of the Global Church of Climate Change.

That’s the truth, and you won’t be getting any truth on this plan from our corrupt, Soviet-style propaganda media establishment.

That is all.

Today’s Required Reading: Stop Calling the Corrupt Media ‘Mainstream’

It has been manifestly obvious for several years now that the corrupt national media outlets that make up what we have traditionally referred to as the “mainstream news media” are no longer “mainstream” or in any real way “news” outlets. They all long ago made the joint decision to simply become propaganda organs whose duty it is to promote the narratives preferred by one political party, i.e., the Democrats. Yet, while many of us long ago quit referring to this propaganda monolith as the “mainstream news media,” others continue to persist in doing that.

Writing at the Federalist, the great Mollie Hemingway makes a strong case for why perpetuating that false description of what these corrupt media outlets truly are does great harm to our country and its prospect for survival. It’s a fantastic read that everyone should take 15 minutes out of their day to absorb.

Here’s an excerpt to whet your appetite:

It’s easy to complain about the obvious reality that our political media are completely corrupted and engage in propaganda, not journalism. But as they are the largest, most powerful, and least accountable political advocacy group in the country, Americans also need to do more than complain as the press harms the country.

They need to be treated as what they are. So for the love of all that’s holy, stop calling them the “mainstream media” when they are anything but mainstream, with views far to the left of the average American, and they’re not media but propagandists and political activists. If you hear anybody else refer to the “mainstream media,” rhetorically slap that 1980s term out of their mouth.

Average Americans need to stop reading and watching the corrupt corporate media. They should immediately stop subscribing to them, stop advertising with them, and stop paying attention to them. Reporters at these outlets quite obviously hate many Americans and the values they hold, and it’s time most Americans realized that and acted appropriately in response.

If forced to engage with the work of these corrupt political actors, Americans should learn to identify the leftist talking points and assumptions in reporter questions and develop a reflexive suspicion toward them, without fail. Assume out of the gate that the narrative these leftists activists are pushing is not true.

Whether it’s claims about Brett Kavanaugh being a serial gang rapist, or claims about the Covington children attacking an innocent bystander, or claims about the 2016 election being won because Trump colluded with Russia, or any of the other daily false narratives they push, simply assume that the opposite is more likely to be true and only change your mind if you get real evidence from real reporters. When they all tell you in unison that indefensibly mild voter security reforms are the same thing as, and we’re not joking here, starving and dehydrating voters, assume they’re lying with every bone in their body.

It also goes without saying that average Americans should never, ever speak with a corporate reporter. Their decades-long track record of hostility, glee in destroying lives, and general mendacity mean you’re an idiot if you engage with them.

[End]

Go read the full piece. You’ll be glad you did.

Wednesday News Roundup: The Democrat Activists at the WaPo Give Biden Four Pinnochios

If China Joe Biden were a Republican, this would be the only video clip of him that our corrupt news media would ever air – and they would air it as their lead story every night of the week:

Biden is such a habitual and reprehensible liar, however, that even the corrupt Democrat toadies who run the Washington Post felt they needed to call him out for it yesterday.

Here’s an excerpt from the story at Breitbart News:

President Joe Biden advanced a false narrative about Georgia’s new election integrity law, claiming that it reduces voting hours, thereby compromising the ability of working-class Americans to go out and vote. This is a clear falsehood, as the law does not change Election Day hours and actually expands access for early voting, as the establishment media outlet, the Washington Post, pointed out in a fact-check, giving the commander-in-chief Four Pinocchios.

Biden has spoken sharply against Georgia’s election law, which Gov. Brian Kemp (R) signed last week, repeating many of the talking points touted by far-left members of Congress, even referring to state election integrity efforts as “un-American” and “sick,” making “Jim Crow look like Jim Eagle.”

“What I’m worried about is how un-American this whole initiative is. It’s sick. It’s sick … deciding that you’re going to end voting at five o’clock when working people are just getting off work,” he said during last week’s news conference. The following day, Biden claimed the law ended voting hours early “so working people can’t cast their vote after their shift is over.”

However, Biden’s assertions are not accurate. Election Day hours in Georgia, which are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., have not changed. Those in line by 7 p.m. are permitted to cast their vote.

“Nothing in the new law changes those rules,” the Washington Post reported.

Georgia’s law did, however, make changes to early voting, but the Post explained that experts said the “net effect was to expand the opportunities to vote for most Georgians, not limit them”:

“One of the biggest changes in the bill would expand early voting access for most counties, adding an additional mandatory Saturday and formally codifying Sunday voting hours as optional,” Stephen Fowler of Georgia Public Broadcasting said in an excellent and comprehensive report on the impact of the new law. “Counties can have early voting open as long as 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., or 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at minimum. If you live in a larger metropolitan county, you might not notice a change. For most other counties, you will have an extra weekend day, and your weekday early voting hours will likely be longer.”

Charles Stewart III, an election expert at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said: “I had also heard this generally reported as expanding early voting, so I’m surprised by the characterization.” He studied the precise language changes at our request and said it indicated an expansion of hours, especially in rural counties.

The law used to say early “voting shall be conducted during normal business hours.” Experts said that generally means 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The new law makes it specific — “beginning at 9:00 AM and ending at 5:00 PM.” A Georgia election official said the change was made in part because some rural county election offices only worked part time during the week, not a full eight-hour day, so the shift to more specific times makes it clear they must be open every weekday for at least eight hours.

Ultimately, the Post issued Four Pinocchios to Biden’s claim, emphasizing Election Day hours were not changed and the early voting changes actually expand access, as Heritage Action pointed out amid the left’s steam of false characterizations last week:

[End]

So basically, the Sock Puppet-in-Chief accused Georgia Republicans of being racists based on nothing but lies that his handlers fed to him like they feed him his morning tapioca pudding. And the lies were so egregious that even the WaPo felt it could not just ignore them like it normally does for Democrat liars.

That’s some serious lying right there, folks. But hey, it’s Joe Biden, and that’s just how he rolls. In fact, it’s how he has always rolled.

Think about it: Even if you’re a Democrat voter, what has this man told you the truth about? That $15 minimum wage he was going to immediately implement, presumably using fairy dust? A lie.

Those $2,000 checks to everyone he was going to cut on his first day in office? An abject lie.

That $3 trillion “COVID Relief” bill? A massive lie that was 91% pork.

His taking credit for the vaccines that Donald Trump created via his own sheer will? Despicable lies.

His refusal to admit that he has intentionally created the crisis at the border with Mexico? All lies, provably so.

This is the very essence of Joe Biden, your national Sock Puppet-in-Chief. It is not just what he does, it is in fact who he is.

Thanks, Democrats.
