Elon Musk confronts Jeff Bezos: Bezos blinks. – Alex Berenson is a former New York Times reporter who has done yeoman’s work on Twitter exposing all the massive false information that has been spread about the Wuhan Virus by the government and the corrupt news media. His information has been quoted here many times over the past few months.
Berenson has just published a new book exposing these merchants of disinformation, titled “Unreported Truths About COVID-19 and Lockdowns”:
Early yesterday, Amazon blocked Berenson’s book from being marketed on its site, citing non-existent “standards” that it does not apply anywhere else. Basically, Berenson was being blocked because his book does not conform to the propaganda being pushed by China and the WHO.
Berenson complained about it on Twitter, where Musk has obviously been following him. Musk responded by tweeting, “This is insane, @JeffBezos,” and “Time to break up @Amazon. Monopolies are wrong!”
Within a few hours, Amazon suddenly restored Berenson’s book to its platform, and a spokesman lamely explained that it had been block due to an “error.” Yeah, sure.
Generalissimo Gretchen Whitmer again violates her own edicts. – Gretchen Whitmer, the aspiring banana republic dictator and barber-hater who currently serves as Governor in Michigan, has apparently decided that all of her stay-at-home and social distancing nonsense is completely optional.
On Thursday, she made that clear by doing this:
So, if you’re a protester or a looter or a rioter in Michigan, hey, no worries about all that social distancing and staying-at-home stuff! Frau Gretchen was just kidding.
He’s gone full AOC. Not a good look, Joe. – Joe Biden told a group of climate alarmists yesterday that he’s going all-in on the Green New Deal as a means of not just saving the earth, but also to solve all the problems of racial injustice.
No, I’m not kidding. From a report at the Washington Examiner:
In a virtual fundraiser on Thursday afternoon hosted by Climate Leaders for Biden, the former vice president and Democratic presidential candidate said addressing climate change is urgent “not just to stop the earth from warming, but to address the environmental injustices that have left so many low-income people and people of color more vulnerable to the coronavirus, to asthma and other respiratory problems, the effects of pollution,” according to a pool report.
Biden also touched on mass unemployment due to coronavirus pandemic lockdowns, saying that “creating millions, over 10 million good-paying jobs” while investing in clean energy is “an enormous opportunity to rebuild the backbone of this country.”
Addressing “a stimulus to create clean energy jobs that will spur the economic recovery,” Biden said that, “I think that we’re on our way, and we can be on our way to a significant economic recovery, not just to build back but to build back better. Building back what we had before this crisis is not enough.”
“Invest in jobs and the technology of the future,” Biden said. “The clean energy infrastructure is at the very top of the list.”
This is all Church of Climate Change dogma straight out of the Green New Deal, a collection of mindless shibboleths that have no basis in reality. But hey, Biden himself is out of touch with reality most days, so what else would we expect from him?
He’s under-shooting here. – Biden created a media kerfuffle for himself on Thursday at another event at which he was speaking to minority supporters. From a New York Times Report:
Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. told a group of black supporters on Thursday night that most Americans were good people who think the nation can be improved, while also declaring that “there are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there that are just not very good people.”
Mr. Biden offered his estimate during remarks in which he spoke about the importance of a president setting a positive example for the nation on racial issues. He accused President Trump of dividing the country while pledging that, as president, he would not.
“The words a president says matter, so when a president stands up and divides people all the time, you’re going to get the worst of us to come out,” Mr. Biden said during the discussion, which was moderated by the actor Don Cheadle.
“Do we really think this is as good as we can be as a nation? I don’t think the vast majority of people think that,” the former vice president said. “There are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there that are just not very good people, but that’s not who we are. The vast majority of the people are decent, and we have to appeal to that and we have to unite people — bring them together. Bring them together.”
Naturally, Biden’s critics jumped on the “10 to 15 percent” remark as if it is some sort of “basket of deplorables” moment, but that’s not going to fly. I doubt there is anyone in the United States who doesn’t believe that at least 15% of the population of this or any other country are “just not very good people.” If anything, Biden is underestimating here.
If you’re looking for ways to take Biden’s campaign out, look elsewhere because this cat don’t flush.
Hey, 2/3rds of them voted for the guy. – I found this incident to be highly ironic:
From the Breitbart piece:
The crowd booed New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) during his appearance at Thursdays’s vigil for George Floyd, with some hurling expletives, demanding the Democrat politician to “get the f*ck out of here!”
While Rev. Kevin McCall urged the crowd to treat de Blasio with respect, the mayor did not receive an overwhelmingly warm welcome, as the audience inundated his appearance with boos and shouts of “get the fuck out of here,” “f*ck the mayor’s curfew,” and “shut the f*ck up.” Some reportedly turned their backs to the mayor:
Let’s be honest here: New Yorkers get what they deserve in a mayor. In the 2013 election, they elected this giant Marxist boob over his Republican opponent by a margin of 73% to 24%. When he ran for re-election in 2017, after four years of abject failure and rampant nit-wittery, these same New York City voters gave him another four-year term by a margin of 67% to 28%.
According to NYC law, de Blasio is now term-limited out, but the reality is that if he could run for a third term, the very same people who tried to boo him off the stage on Thursday would overwhelmingly re-elect him again for the simple fact that he would have a “D” next to his name.
There is a word for the process of doing the same stupid thing over and over and over again and expecting a different result. That word is “insanity,” and it perfectly describes the voter of New York City and other major cities that have been controlled by Democrat machine politics for many decades.
That is all.
