Neanderthal Thinking Turns Bi-Partisan

A friend sent the following little missive over to me the morning after China Joe Biden had accused Governors Greg Abbott of Texas and Tate Reeves of Mississippi of “Neanderthal thinking” after they ended their statewide orders on wearing masks and imposing occupancy limits on a wide variety of dining, drinking and service businesses:

“Those of us who descend from Europe are 3 to 5 percent Neanderthal DNA. We should have a special protected status and get reparations in the form of quality cave art. Our ancestors were obliterated. I am tired of discrimination against Neanderthals.”

Great parody of today’s leftwing Perpetual Outrage Mob thinking right there.

But now, China Joe and his toadying Mob are faced with having to shift their talking and screaming points yet again. Late Thursday, Democrat Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont joined Abbott and Reeves in dramatically rolling back his own unconstitutional orders.

From a story at DailyWire:

Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont announced on Thursday that his state would soon be making significant reductions to restrictions that the state implemented in an attempt to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

“Most of the changes will go into effect on March 19, with several more coming down the line over the following two weeks,” the Hartford Courant reported. “The decision comes as President Joe Biden warns states not to move fast on reopening. Lamont said the decision was a result of Connecticut’s dropping COVID-19 metrics.”

A statement from the governor’s office said that while many of the measures are being rolled back, protocols about wearing face coverings, social distancing, and sanitation measures are still being kept in place.

All capacity limits in Connecticut are being eliminated on March 19 for restaurants, retail outlets, libraries, personal services, indoor recreation, gyms, museums, zoos, offices, and places of worship. On March 29, capacity limits on early childhood classes will increase from 16 to 20. On April 2, outdoor amusement parks can open, outdoor venues can increase to a 50% capacity with a maximum 10,000 people, and indoor stadiums can open to 10% capacity.

[End]

So, being a Democrat, Lamont naturally wants to preserve his brutish control over his citizens’ daily lives to some extent, but the direction he is moving is abundantly clear: It is in the same direction as Abbott and Reeves.

Thus, being a Neanderthal becomes a rare exercise in bi-partisanship in today’s polarized America. Go figure. Then again, all three governors are obviously of European descent, thus proving my friend’s thesis conclusively. That Neanderthal blood runs thick.

In fact, my buddy’s anecdote was backed up on Thursday by none other than Senator Marco Rubio, as reported by the New York Post:

Sen. Marco Rubio is urging President Biden to seek “training on unconscious bias” after using the term “Neanderthal” to criticize Republican governors who ended COVID-19 mask mandates.

The Florida Republican humorously described the word as a “stereotype” and noted Thursday that many people of Eurasian ancestry descend from the extinct hominid species.

“President Biden’s use of an old stereotype is hurtful to modern Europeans, Asians & Americans who inherit about 2% of their genes from Neanderthal ancestors,” Rubio tweeted.

“He should apologize for his insensitive comments and seek training on unconscious bias.”

Sen. Rubio was joking, sort of, but Biden’s various forms of bigotry are starkly obvious to anyone who has paid attention to his public utterances through the years. Just yesterday, in fact, Biden told a group of NASA engineers that Indian Americans are “taking over the country.” Presumably, Indian Americans will be glad to learn that Biden is no longer accusing them of owning and running all of the 7/11 stores, as he did in a famous incident about 20 years ago.

Progress.

Of course, Biden and the Mob will continue to scream about masks and the fiction that they have done anything to halt the spread of the viral gift from China. That bit of idiocy is destroyed in this easy-to-understand chart:

May be an image of text that says '260000 DAILY NEW CASES UNITED STATES CDC "CASES ARE ON THE TH" March3 100000 80000 Harris Pollt 93% MASK COMPLIANCE October 22 National Geographic 92% MASK COMPLIANCE CDC October 89% MASK COMPLIANCE Pew Research CDC June 85% MASK 83% MASK COMPLIANCE COMPLIANCE CDC May 78% MASK COMPLIANCE April 40000 30000 20000 10000'

For those incapable of reading a simple line chart, what this one shows is that, as Americans got to 93% compliance with mask orders around the country, the number of “cases” of COVID-19 rocketed skywards to unprecedented levels. It’s not necessarily a cause and effect relationship, though: More likely just a case of the masks having zero impact on anything, which many studies all over the globe have found.

To be absolutely clear on this: I think wearing masks should be a personal choice and I don’t care what choice anyone else makes. I have worn a mask everywhere it has been required for 10 months simply because those have been the rules, as unconstitutional as they clearly are, even though I know there is zero data indicating that wearing theses masks protects me or anyone else.

What I object to is someone saying “it’s premature” and “the Governor’s a neanderthal” without backing either statement up with the slightest bit of data or science.

I’m not a huge fan of Governor Abbott’s orders, but in his defense, every step he has taken has been based on real data and the advice from his chosen panel of experts. His approach has been systemic and defensible and utterly consistent. The lunatic level of outrage his latest order has produced is completely uncalled for and utterly unsupported by a shred of data or science.

So, yeah, I’m going to push back on that, and I hope others do as well.

Bottom line, this is my most fervent wish about what should happen related to COVID-19:

Thursday News Roundup: Biden’s Handlers Cut His Feed and Who Paid for Illegal Immigrant t-Shirts?

Sometimes the Sock Puppet in Chief forgets his role. – President Donald Trump used to hold 2 to 3 press availabilities on a daily basis; Joe Biden, meanwhile, has yet to hold a single one across his 7 weeks thus far in office. This stark contrast has naturally created troubling questions about what in the world is going on here, especially given the fact that China Joe is so obviously displaying the classic signs of an elderly person dealing with advancing dementia.

The fact that Biden’s handlers have refused to allow him to deliver the traditional speech to a joint session of congress early in his first year is another sign that they understand he is not capable of spending too long speaking in public without what they deem to be “proper” supervision. This is the main reason why his Department of Homeland Security keeps inventing “security emergencies” alleging that the largely-imaginary forces of “Q-Anon” are somehow a threat to the Capital Building, as they did yet again this week, resulting in congressional staffers being sent home for two days. These “threats” that never materialize into anything real provide Biden’s handlers with a handy excuse to explain why he has not gone to Capital Hill to deliver said speech.

It’s all quite a ruse.

All of the White House staff’s machinations to allow Biden to publicly speech only under the most-strictly controlled circumstances produced a comical incident on Wednesday in which a live-streamed event was suddenly cut off after the Sock Puppet said “I’m happy to take questions.”

Oops. No, you’re not.

Biden’s handlers then immediately ended the stream, and a graphic appeared on the participants’ screens that said “Thank you for joining.”

My goodness. This is the “leader” of the formerly free world.

Just in case you take that latest DHS security warning seriously… – Here is what is actually happening at the Capitol Building today:

 

Oh. Thank goodness that these DHS people aren’t running our public schools or they’d all end up being evacuated every day in response to every fake bomb threat called in by a teenager looking to avoid taking a physical science exam (and that analogy is not at all auto-biographical, ok?).

Hey, China Joe’s already allowed 108 of them who tested positive for COVID-19 into Texas… – Now these poor, destitute illegal aliens all have their own ready-made t-shirts. Guess where those came from?

Anyway, the t-shirts bear a logo demanding that China Joe go ahead and let them into the country illegally because, well, he’s a Democrat and they believe they are somehow entitled. So, there you go.

From the story at Breitbart:

Foreign nationals gathered at the United States-Mexico border this week to demand President Joe Biden’s administration release them into the interior of the country, as they have done with thousands of other border crossers.

On March 2, about a hundred foreign nationals from Mexico, Central America, Haiti, and Cuba protested near San Ysidro, California in Tijuana, Mexico where they requested the Biden administration allow them into the U.S.

Wearing t-shirts with Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign logo and the words “Please let us in!” the group of foreign nationals held signs that read “Biden — please let me enter.” In interviews with AFP, some of the foreign nationals said Biden ought to allow them to enter the U.S. while they await their asylum claims as the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has done with others.

“We want an answer from your president, we want someone to come out and give us an answer,” one of the protesters told nearby U.S. federal immigration officials.

[End]

Just so everyone is clear here, these illegal aliens are not actually entitled to anything from the United States of America, much less demanding that the POTUS give them an answer to their demands for unearned privilege. Of course, the liberal virtue signal crowd will all get onto their Twitter and Facebook accounts to wail about how awful these people are being treated by just, you know, like, everybody!!!!!!

But all I can wonder about it all is, who paid for those damn t-shirts? Although the answer really isn’t hard to figure out.

Today’s Short-Term Memory Reminder. – I’m old enough to remember when Andrew Cuomo’s big scandal – which his friends in the corrupt news media still ignore – was killing thousands of New York senior citizens in the state’s nursing homes. Brit Hume is also old enough to remember that, and Powerline Blog has an excellent piece analyzing that disgusting media failure to do its job.

From the story at PowerLineBlog:

ASSESSING ANDREW CUOMO

It says a lot that Andrew Cuomo became a media darling even as his policies caused thousands of deaths in New York nursing homes, but now, suddenly, is the subject of impeachment talk because three women have accused him of mild or borderline sexual harassment. What it suggests to me is that our priorities are skewed and that our culture is becoming frivolous.

The allegations of sexual harassment show Cuomo to be a boor, something many of us already suspected. Reasonable people can disagree as to whether the allegations are just cause for removing him as governor.

The fact that Cuomo sent New Yorkers infected with the coronavirus back to nursing homes where, inevitably, they became super-spreaders is a far more serious matter. And if, as may well be the case, he committed federal crimes when asked by the Justice Department about this scandal, this is just cause for removal and for criminal prosecution.

[End]

The author, Paul Mirengoff, is right, of course. But anyone expecting the U.S. Justice Department under Merrick Garland to lift a finger to investigate the matter and potentially bring charges against a Democrat governor is destined for major disappointment.

Today’s Required Reading… – Today’s required reading comes from the Washington Examiner, where Tina Lowe has authored a terrific, devastating commentary that disrobes, tars and feathers repugnant California Governor Gavin Newsom.

Here is an excerpt from that piece to whet your appetite:

Even California has its limits. And they just might bring down the curtain on the charmed career of Golden State golden boy Gavin Newsom.

In less than a year, the liberal governor of California went from having a 67% approval rating, including a majority of the state’s Republicans, to potentially becoming the third governor in the nation’s history to lose his seat in a recall election. California may have a Cook partisan voter index of D+12, the sitting vice president and speaker of the House, and nearly 20% of the Democratic Party’s House contingent, but Newsom’s scandal-plagued term might prove too much to ignore.

A group of grassroots organizers has already garnered 1.5 million signatures on a petition to force a recall vote against Newsom, but they intend to send 2 million to the state by the March deadline just in case some are thrown out. Although the organizers largely come from conservative backgrounds and the first major candidate to jump into the race is Kevin Faulconer, the former Republican mayor of San Diego, the anti-Newsom push isn’t strictly partisan.

“If we get back to normal, everyone’s gonna have to go to therapy for a few f—ing years, because we’re all depressed and going insane,” a prominent Latino Democratic strategist who’s worked with scores of state politicians told the Washington Examiner. In the hopes of controlling the narrative, Newsom has traversed the state under the guise of coronavirus management, hamming it up for the camera in convenient photo-ops with close party allies as a show of confidence in his stature.

The COVID-19 restrictions in every state

But that’s part of the problem. “I don’t want to see my governor happy every day,” the Democratic strategist noted. “I want to see my governor a little bit miserable. Just like me. I don’t want to know that my governor is sending his kids to in-person classes every day.” Newsom’s troubles really started to boil over when he was caught dining at the Michelin-starred French Laundry with 22 others while shuttering local restaurants left and right over coronavirus restrictions.

Although California has suffered a death rate just half as bad as New York and New Jersey, Newsom has committed the sort of made-for-TV errors that only compound his reputation as an out-of-touch ingénue. Newsom has let the teachers unions keep all but 11% of the state’s children out of school, yet he sent his own to in-person private school. And after nearly a year of Californians sacrificing their livelihoods to keep their death rates much lower than most of the nation, it aggregated half of its total deaths from the pandemic in just two months — after Newsom instituted a ban on outdoor dining, putting an already struggling restaurant industry on life support.

The Leftist Outrage Mob Goes Crazy in Texas

Ok, so, the new Texas liberal/leftist/socialist/fascist/communist virtue signal is to go onto Twitter or Facebook and brag that “I’m gonna keep wearing my mask – I don’t care what that neanderthal Abbott says!” Which tells you they’re breathlessly keeping up with their Democrat Party talking points, since the elderly Sock Puppet In Chief used the word “neanderthal” yesterday when talking about Texas Governer Greg Abbott’s rescission of his statewide mask order and job-killing limitations on Texas businesses.

But don’t ask them what actual data or science they’re using as the foundation for their demented brag; if you do, they’ll just scream something like “it’s science because Fauci says so!!!!!” or something similar. After all, these are people who have already made a conscious decision to remain willfully ignorant of any data or science that does not support the daily talking, er, screaming points coming at them from Biden and Fauci and that bald little fat guy on CNN.

Let’s face it, they’re already intentionally ignoring every shred of science about kids being back in school so they can go to Twitter and Facebook to signal their teacher’s union-supporting virtue. Expecting any of them to actually pay attention to the real science about the utter uselessness of wearing masks is like asking for a complete change in long-engrained behavior.

Not gonna happen.

Very predictably, the sadistic cowards who run big box stores like Wal-Mart and Target in Texas have also already made the decision to follow the mood of the Perpetual Outrage Mob and continue to require the wearing of masks on their premises, which Governor Abbott made very clear is their right to do in his order. Of course, it’s to their advantage to play to the mob, which makes up half of their customer base. And it’s also to their advantage to do their part in fanning the mob’s flames since it will encourage the mask-wearers to now boycott any small business competitor who chooses to lift their own mask requirement.

See how this works?

As I told a friend on Facebook yesterday, this is what a year of brainwashing by Fauci and the corrupt news media has done to the left: Turned them into a pack of braying hyenas who consider it a significant virtue to deny American kids a full year of real in-school education – something that is most negatively impactful for the least-privileged kids among us – and to walk around hiding half their faces behind one, two or even three masks that have been proved time after time after time to have literally no impact on the spread of this virus.

As well, school superintendents across Texas are signaling their own virtue to the mob by announcing they will keep in place the mask requirements and other restrictions that have set back millions of school children in the state. Here is one typically idiotic statement from the superintendent of the Cedar Hill ISD in North Texas:

“Cedar Hill Independent School District, we certainly believe the mask requirement should continue for the foreseeable future. The masks have allowed us to return to a semblance of normalcy. They have prevented COVID-19 cases and allowed in-classroom learning to begin and thrive…”

No, the masks have not prevented COVID-19 cases. As even Anthony Fauci has repeatedly stated on national television, there is zero evidence that school-age kids are spreaders of the virus, and even less evidence that requiring 7 year-old children to wear masks has prevented a single case of the viral gift from China. This is propaganda, nothing more, and it is what we are running our schools upon. It’s the very same propaganda that screamed that the recent Super Bowl held in Tampa, Florida would turn into a “super spreader” event, but ignores the actual science and data that proves it was in fact nothing of the sort.

As I’ve been warning you for many months now: The left’s response to COVID is not about saving lives, it is about controlling lives. It is about creating the pretense for making things like wearing masks and stay-at-home orders and unconstitutional restrictions on the freedoms we have always held dear permanent features of our lives. These restrictions are things they consider to be features, not glitches, and they are going to cling to them by any means necessary.

Why? Because a population that not only lives in fear but does so willingly is much easer to control as the Democrats continue to shove their rancid form of fascist socialism down its collective throat.

That’s what this is about, and the Perpetual Outrage Mob on Twitter and Facebook provides the foot soldiers for the spread of the Nazi-style propaganda.

As is always the case with leftists, once you accept their actual motivations, everything they do and say, er, scream makes perfect sense.

That is all.

Monday News Roundup: At CPAC, DeSantis Emerges as Trump’s Clear Heir Apparent

Trump spoke at CPAC on Sunday. – I write at length about that event in another piece this morning. Go read it.

If this result surprises you, you haven’t been paying attention. – It is no secret that the Republican Party establishment has coalesced behind former South Carolina Governor and UN Ambassador Nikki Haley as its’ preferred GOP presidential nominee for 2024. Haley is a consummate creature of the DC Swamp, a RINO at heart who would be very easy for party insiders and funders to manipulate as president. She is basically the female version of Jeb! Bush.

But Amb. Haley will have a very steep hill to climb in order to become the 2024 nominee, if the results of yesterday’s CPAC Straw Poll are any indication. Donald Trump of course came in as the clear front-runner in the poll, but if you assume as I do that he will not be the party’s nominee, given that he will then be as old as Joe Biden is now, there is one clear-cut front runner who Haley would have to find a way to overcome: Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

Haley also lags behind another GOP governor who has shown outstanding leadership throughout the COVID-19 pandemic: South Dakota’s Kristi Noem.

From a story at DailyWire:

A Washington Times/CPAC poll released on Sunday showed that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) would dominate the Republican field of presidential candidates for 2024 if former President Donald Trump decides not to run for president again.

The poll, which found that over 95% of respondents approved of the job that Trump did as president, showed that voters were concerned most about election integrity, border security, constitutional rights, and economic issues.

More than two-thirds of respondents said that they wanted Trump to run again, while 15% said they did not, and 17% were unsure. A staggering 95% of respondents want the GOP to continue pursuing the policies of Trump.

If Trump were to run for president again, 55% of respondents said they would vote for him, followed by 21% for DeSantis, and 4% for South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem. If Trump is not on the ticket in 2024, 43% of respondents said that they would vote for DeSantis, followed by 11% for Noem.

[End]

I’ve been touting a 2024 GOP ticket of DeSantis/Noem or Noem/DeSantis here since last May, when it became apparent that they were way ahead of the pack in terms of exercising true executive leadership on COVID and the other pressing issues of the day. Both are young, both are attractive, both do extremely well on television, both have adopted Trump’s more aggressive manner in dealing with the eternally hostile press, and both understand where the ideological momentum is in the GOP.

DeSantis says Trump will soon reveal federal help for Hurricane Michael - Orlando Sentinel

While far from definitive, the CPAC straw poll shows that’s where the party’s true conservative/populist/America First wing is leaning.

Cool.

Today’s Biden Gas Premium Update. – Just a reminder that the price of a gallon of gasoline has now risen by 50 cents per gallon since Election Day.

Over the weekend, Goldman Sachs raised its 2021 mid-year crude oil price projection to $75 per barrel after the Brent index price exceeded its prior $65 estimate late last week. Because the price of gasoline tends to follow the price of crude oil, you can expect the Biden Gas Premium to grow to around 75 cents per gallon by mid-year if Goldman Sachs is right.

So, next time you run into any of your liberal pals, be sure to thank them for that extra $15 you’re having to fork over every time you fill up your car’s 20-gallon tank.

Are Florida Democrats really going to run Crist again? – Meanwhile, as the GOP shifts to a more youthful leadership profile, there is growing speculation that the already-geriatric Democrats may end up nominating another fossil to challenge DeSantis in 2022.  That’s right: the political chameleon Charlie Crist is getting ready to run one more time.

It’s hard to believe Charlie Crist is just 64 years old. It feels like he’s been around forever, frankly, spending his first 20 or so years in politics as a nominal Republican before shifting over to the Democrat Party in 2012 after having spent four years serving as Florida’s governor. Crist was a state senator throughout the 1990s, tried and failed in a run for the U.S. senate against Democrat Bob Graham in 1998, served as Florida Attorney General from 2003 through 2006, and tried and failed to defeat Marco Rubio while running as an independent in 2010. Hooboy.

Now, the scaly Crist is planning another run for governor.

From a story at Politico:

TALLAHASSEE — Rep. Charlie Crist switched parties almost a decade ago — but the party has moved on.

As the former Republican prepares a potential bid to unseat Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, the 64-year-old Crist must somehow convince skeptical Democrats that he can energize the diverse coalition that now makes up the party.

“I don’t think he excites the part of the base that we need to propel a statewide campaign,” said Thomas Kennedy, a newly-elected member of the Democratic National Committee from Florida. “I don’t think a former Republican governor — who has lost statewide before and, quite frankly, hasn’t been at the forefront of the battles that have roiled this county in the last four years — is going to be able to take on what’s going to be a really tough race against Ron DeSantis.”

Crist, a two-term congressman who served as the state’s governor more than a decade ago, hasn’t officially jumped into the race. But he’s reached out to political consultants, major donors such as famed attorney John Morgan, long-time friends like Broward Mayor Steve Geller and other politicians about whether he should try to reclaim the job he once held. Along the way, some of his past allies are beginning to work with other potential Democratic candidates.

When asked whether he’s the right candidate for now, Crist retorts: “I got two words: Joe Biden. Look at what happened in our last election.”

Though Biden managed to win the Democratic nomination and presidency, he lost to President Donald Trump in Florida, and the GOP picked up both congressional and legislative seats in an election that some view as evidence that Florida is losing its reputation as the nation’s largest battleground state.

[End]

Oof. When the Democrat toadies at Politico are writing pooh-pooing stories like this one about you, you’ve got a real uphill climb ahead.

Given Crist’s repeated failures in trying to unseat prominent Florida office holders in the past – he beat a relative unknown Democrat, Jim Davis, in the 2006 governor’s election – Republicans should be actively supporting his efforts to attain the Democrat nomination next year. But if Politico’s initial shot across Crist’s bow is an indicator of the media’s overall bias in the looming race, he will have a tough time gaining much traction in the race.

For Democrats, the booster support of a fawning media is everything, and right now, at least, Charlie Crist doesn’t have it.

Sunday News Roundup: Pelosi’s Capitol Riot Fairy Tale Takes a Hit and Whitmer has a Nursing Home Problem

Imagine if he didn’t have an army of handlers writing his scripts, whispering into that earpiece and reminding him where he is every minute of the day. – Here is why China Joe Biden is seldom allowed out of the White House:

I’m sure “Shirley” Jackson Lee appreciates her new name.

Why do Democrats hate biological women so deeply? – If you have daughters, granddaughters or nieces you care about, watch and listen to the clip below. This is the ultimate consequence of the policies currently being pushed by Joe Biden and his despicable handlers:

This seems like a big deal, doesn’t it? – If we had a functioning news media based on real standards of journalism in this country, this would not be news at all, since President Trump told us weeks ago that he had offered to call in National Guard troops to help Capitol Police control the Capitol grounds on January 6, but was turned down by Nancy Pelosi. The entirety of the corrupt national news media ignored Trump for the simple fact that statement did not conform to their preferred narrative that the Capitol riot was in fact an attempted insurrection led by Trump. After all, you couldn’t very well maintain this absurd narrative if Trump was actually trying to get Pelosi to beef up security a week in advance, could you?

It turns out that it has taken five weeks for the media to follow up on that presidential statement and figure out that, oops, Trump was right.

Here’s an excerpt from that story at the Daily Caller:

In the aftermath of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, Former Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving recalled to House Admin how previous discussions with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her office factored in to his “blender of decision making,” according to three sources with direct knowledge of Irving’s talk with House Admin.

Pelosi’s office had previously impressed upon Irving that the National Guard was to remain off Capitol Grounds, Irving allegedly told House Admin. The discussions, which centered around “optics,” allegedly occurred in the months prior to the Jan. 6 riot, during a time when deployment of federal resources for civil unrest was unpopular with Democrats and many members of Congress.

The three sources who confirmed the discussion to the Daily Caller did so under the condition of anonymity, citing the fear of putting a chill on further witnesses to how the security situation unfolded Jan. 6. The discussion, if accurate, raises questions as to what role Pelosi’s office had in the security failures that resulted in the resignations of both Irving and former Chief of Capitol Police Steven Sund. Pelosi’s Deputy Chief of Staff Drew Hammill did not deny the allegations in a statement to the Daily Caller.

“The Speaker’s Office has made it clear publicly and repeatedly that our office was not consulted or contacted concerning any request for the National Guard ahead of January 6th. That has been confirmed by former Sergeant at Arms Irving in sworn testimony before Senate committees. The Speaker expects security professionals to make security decisions and to briefed about those decisions,” Hammill said.

[End]

Now, of course Pelosi’s office denies the story since it destroys the entire basis for the impeachment scam she spent a month ramming through. It also destroys the narrative she and her fellow UniParty Democans and Republicrats have built up to justify their effort to make the wall currently encircling the Capitol Building and 7,000-strong ongoing National Guard presence a permanent feature of life in the Washington, DC police state.

Every word these people and their toadies in the news media say to you is a lie. Once you accept that reality, everything makes perfect sense.

Speaking of lying liars who lie, how about that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, huh? – He got hit with yet another major sexual harassment allegation on Saturday, and the New York Times actually decided to cover it. I write about that amazing event in detail in another piece this morning. Go read it. Thanks.

Guess who else has a nursing home deaths problem? – If you guessed Michigan Governor and aspiring Central American Dictator Gretchen Whitmer, you win the prize!

On Saturday, a group of Republican legislators alleged that, like Cuomo, Whitmer’s draconian and idiotic executive edicts related to COVID-19 may have inflated the death tolls among senior citizens residing in Michigan’s nursing home facilities. They also allege that, like Cuomo, Whitmer’s administration has systematically under-reported the number of such deaths over the past 10 months.

Here’s an excerpt from a story at Fox News:

Republican state legislators in Michigan have Gov. Gretchen Whitmer in their sights as they call for investigations into the governor’s handling of nursing homes and other long-term care facilities during the coronavirus pandemic.

The call to investigate Whitmer, a Democrat, came in a pair of letters to both acting U.S. Attorney General Monty Wilkinson and Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel. Michigan State Sen. Jim Runestad spearheaded the letters, which were signed by seven other Republican state senators.

“Gov. Whitmer’s regional hub policy placed patients with and without COVID-19 in the same facilities and may have exacerbated the death toll in those facilities,” Runestad said in a statement on Wednesday.

“Questions remain regarding the accuracy of data, compliance with CDC guidelines and compliance with our state’s Freedom of Information Act. There is a critical need for a full investigation into these matters.”

In the letters, the lawmakers pointed out that COVID-19 infections and deaths in the Wolverine State “have soared” over the past year and that Whitmer’s administration had “been questioned about unintended consequences” of her policies.

The senators also called attention to “discrepancies” in cases and death data “in the state’s long-term care facilities.”

“It has now come to our attention that these reporting errors have likely not been resolved,” the Republicans charged.

“Gov. Whitmer’s regional hub policy put patients with and without COVID-19 in the same facilities and may have exacerbated the death toll in those facilities,” they added.

[End]

Naturally, this rising scandal is being ignored by the rest of the corrupt national news media, which spent months during 2020 building Whitmer up as a dandy choice to become Joe Biden’s vice presidential running mate, just as they spent months building Cuomo up as a potential president, just as they spent a year doing the same for the Creepy Porn Lawyer.

Are you sensing a pattern here? If the media is telling you some Democrat would be just great leading the country, that likely means that Democrat is among the very worst people in the world.

The more you know…

Saturday News Roundup: The Durham “Investigation” Ends as Amazon Cancels Clarence Thomas

This may be the greatest thing I’ve ever seen. Just watch it – whoever did it is a genius:

Ok, here’s something positive. – Watch as the heir apparent to the Trump legacy within the GOP, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, gives the opening speech at CPAC:

“Now, Florida’s leading on the issues that matter to conservatives, we don’t spout hollow rhetoric, we take decisive action,” And what’s true in Florida it’s true for conservatives across the nation. We cannot, woe will not go back to the days of the failed Republican establishment of yesteryear.”

Strong stuff.

Here’s Ted Cruz giving a fiery speech, emphasizing the fact that Trump transformed the GOP into the party that looks out for the little guy in America:

And here is CNN’s Jim Acosta receiving the welcome he deserves to the CPAC event:

Fun stuff.

President Trump speaks on Sunday afternoon to close out the conference. Fox’s John Roberts says that someone within the Trump team is telling him that the President will say, in part, that “the only divide in the GOP is between the grassroots and a ‘handful of beltway insiders’. I am told he will name names.”

That list of names will no doubt start with Mitch McConnell.

The only part of “black history” liberals want to celebrate is liberal “black history.” – The people who run Amazon Prime have proved that longtime reality yet again by deactivating a documentary about Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas from its platform during Black History Month.

That’s right: Black children and their parents who are interested in learning about the life of one of just two black men who have risen to hold seats on the highest court in the land cannot do so during Black History Month.

From a sad, sad story at The Federalist:

Amazon stripped a documentary on conservative Justice Clarence Thomas, the only black justice currently serving on the Supreme Court, from its streaming service during Black History Month.

“This video is currently unavailable to watch in your location,” the website reads when the title is clicked.

While this article is being written in Denver, the outage appears nationwide, also reported by Breitbart News.

Amazon appeared to drop the PBS title, “Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words,” while still promoting a wide array of feature films under the category of Black History Month such as “All In: The Fight For Democracy,” with Stacey Abrams and two movies on Anita Hill, Thomas’ accuser of sexual misconduct who attempted to derail his confirmation. All come free to stream with a Prime membership.

The Thomas documentary released in January last year remains available to purchase on DVD. A simple search for “Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words,” comes up short for the title however. To find it, users must include “DVD” in the search box, and the documentary will come up as the 10th result. A search for “RBG” on the other hand, will bring three documentaries on Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s documentary to the top after promoting a sponsored post of her biography, “Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.”

[End]

If you still don’t think that the people on the American left hate you and are at war with you, then you just haven’t been paying close enough attention.

In perhaps the most predictable event thus far in the China Joe Biden sock puppet administration, U.S. Attorney John Durham was fired on Friday. – Oh, yeah, it’s couched as a “resignation,” but we all know he was fired. Early reports on the matter claimed he would be retained in his role as “special counsel” which worthless ex-attorney general William Barr cynically tagged him with last October, but later reports make no mention of that role one way or another.

Perhaps most telling, Durham himself makes no mention of it in a letter of resignation that sounds very final. Here is the text of that letter:

After serving as the United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut for more than three years, and as a federal prosecutor in Connecticut for more than 38 years, John H. Durham today announced his resignation from the U.S. Attorney’s Office, effective at midnight on February 28.

“My career has been as fulfilling as I could ever have imagined when I graduated from law school way back in 1975,” said U.S. Attorney Durham.  “Much of that fulfillment has come from all the people with whom I’ve been blessed to share this workplace, and in our partner law enforcement agencies.  My love and respect for this Office and the vitally important work done here have never diminished.  It has been a tremendous honor to serve as U.S. Attorney, and as a career prosecutor before that, and I will sorely miss it.”

Prior to his appointment as an interim U.S. Attorney in November 2017 and subsequently as the presidentially appointed U.S. Attorney in February 2018, Mr. Durham served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in various positions in the District of Connecticut for 35 years, prosecuting complex organized crime, violent crime, public corruption and financial fraud matters.  From 1978 to 1982, he served as an Assistant State’s Attorney in the New Haven State’s Attorney’s Office, and from 1977 to 1978, he served as a Deputy Assistant State’s Attorney in the Office of the Chief State’s Attorney.

First Assistant U.S. Attorney Leonard C Boyle will serve as Acting U.S. Attorney upon Mr. Durham’s departure.

“The Office will be in the extraordinarily capable hands of Len and our superb supervisory team who, together, guarantee that the proper administration of justice will continue uninterrupted in our District.”

[End]

So, there will apparently be no “Durham Report”, nor any further investigation of the long-running coup d’etat effort mounted on American soil by the upper management of the FBI and Department of Justice across parts of two presidential administrations.

But we all knew that would be the case months ago, rendering yesterday’s announcement from Durham as just another sad moment of this five week-old presidency that will thousands more sad moments to come.

Rest in Peace, Rush Limbaugh:

Friday News Roundup: When Equality Means Discrimination and Biden’s Broken Promises Mount

Today’s Short-Term Memory Reminder. – This morning, Joe Biden has kids back living in cages, America back at war in Syria, no $15 minimum wage anywhere in sight, and those $2000 checks that were going to be delivered to everyone “immediately” after he assumed office are still nowhere to be seen and will never materialize.

Thanks, Democrats!

X, X Everywhere Meme - Imgflip

Today’s Long-Term Memory Reminder. – 20 years ago this month, Al Gore told us we would all be dead in 20 years from global warming. And he is still running the same scam that has now made him a multi-hundred millionaire.

May be an image of 1 person, fire and text

Shameless self-promotion commercial break: I write at length about the Biden Administration’s decision to re-start Barack Obama’s war on Syria with a unilateral series of missile strikes in another piece this morning. Go read it after you finish here.

Hey, about that $15/hr minimum wage… – It’s a funny thing about passing laws through congress: You have to have enough votes to get over all the procedural hurdles. As former senators, both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris presumably knew this throughout the campaign when they cynically promised to “immediately” raise the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour.

This means they knew that any such proposal would either have to have at least 60 votes behind it in the senate, or have the senate parliamentarian rule that it would qualify under the arcane senate “reconciliation” rule that is to be used strictly for budgetary purposes and not for statutory changes. The “reconciliation” process is intended mainly to reconcile numbers between budget bills passed by the house and the senate, and requires only a 51 vote majority for approval, the exact number the Democrats currently control with Kamala Harris joining in as the tie-breaker.

Biden and Harris knew all of this going in, which means they knew pretty much with out any doubt that their promises for a higher minimum wage were in fact false promises. Yesterday, the other shoe dropped on that as the senate parliamentarian very predictably ruled that the $15 minimum wage provision in the Democrats’ $1.9 trillion bill to pay off Democrat constituencies cannot be passed under reconciliation rules:

Here’s an excerpt from that story at JustTheNews.com:

Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough has reportedly determined that including a provision in the COVID-19 relief package to increase minimum wage to $15 per hour would not be acceptable under the chamber’s rules.

Democrats are seeking to pass the bill using reconciliation, which would enable them to avoid the 60-vote legislative filibuster, according to The Hill.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi described the Senate parliamentarian’s ruling as “disappointing” but said that the minimum wage provision will stay in the legislation that the House is expected to approve on Friday.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said a statement: “President Biden is disappointed in this outcome, as he proposed having the $15 minimum wage as part of the American Rescue Plan. He respects the parliamentarian’s decision and the Senate’s process. He will work with leaders in Congress to determine the best path forward because no one in this country should work full time and live in poverty,” the statement said, adding that Biden urges the nation’s legislature to approve the relief legislation.

[End]

Thus does the $15 minimum wage go the way of the $2000 checks to everybody and the dodo bird, which both Biden and Harris knew would be the case all along.

Feeling properly stupid yet, Democrats?

Speaking of that Democrat constituent payoff bill… – Here’s a terrific graphic showing where all the money is going. And guess what? It’s not going to you:

May be an image of text that says 'THE PELOSI PAYOFF COVID HEALTH SPENDING -COVID SPENDING 9% -Planned Parenthood -Bailouts for New York and California -Unions -Arts -Schumer's Bridge -Pelosi's Train 91% NG MIKE JOHNSON'

Hey, guess how they are apportioning the $350 billion in the bill that is going to the various states? By their rate of unemployment! Thus, states like New York and New Jersey and Illinois that have been ravaged by Democrat governors and legislators for decades and have high rates of unemployment will be getting proportionately more money than Red states that have low unemployment.

The lesson? Screw up your state by electing incompetent Democrat leadership and the feds will bail you out. It’s like giving a screaming spoiled brat another popsicle just to shut him up. He’s only going to scream louder and longer next time.

When “Equality” really means “Discrimination”. – Speaking of attacks on you, how about that “Equality Act”, huh? This is yet another great example of Democrats assigning a name to a bill that is exactly the opposite of what the bill actually would do. The Democrats, media and their Perpetual Outrage Mob on Twitter are promoting this bill as somehow ensuring “equal” rights for LGBTQ folks, something that in fact they already possess.

This bill is not that at all, not even a little bit. This bill is a full frontal assault on the freedoms of speech, religion and association, and on biological women. It is a bill that will end civic life as we know it should it be signed into law by President Sock Puppet.

Here’s an excerpt from a terrific piece by Christopher Bedford at TheFederalist:

“Have you been following this ‘Equality Act?’” a Catholic priest I know asked me as I passed on the icy sidewalk early Sunday afternoon.

“A bit,” I answered. “You can be sure anything that comes out of D.C. does the opposite of its name.”

Check it out today,” he replied. “It could pass as early as this week, and it’s very, very troubling.”

The two of us went our ways, carefully navigating the icy bricks back to the safety of our homes. The monsignor was right, of course: If the Equality Act passes, he won’t be safe in his home much longer, nor will women be safe in their sports, their restrooms and locker rooms, the nail salons they work in, nor even shelters from homelessness and abuse.

The act, which the House is expected to pass for the second time in nine months on Thursday before sending it to a now-Democratic Senate, opens up swinging on Christian (as well as most religions’) concepts of morality in marriage, sex, and identity. It would strike biological sex from the 1964 Civil Rights Act, replacing it with “sexual orientation and gender identity.” Belief in traditional marriage, the act would legislate, is a specific example of illegal discrimination.

If the bill passes the Senate, our church parishes will become soft targets. While weak-kneed men like David French confidently celebrated the migration of drag queens from rowdy, seedy city bars to children’s library story hours as “blessings of liberty,” it will be curious to see what he thinks when parish halls are subjected to those same blessings.

It’s all made possible by massively expanding the government’s definition of bigotry, as well as the definition of public gathering places to include any place that “provides exhibition, entertainment, recreation, exercise, amusement, public gathering or public display.” When you add the above to “any establishment that provides a good, service, or program,” you’ve put nearly the entirety of American civic life under the thumb of radical activists.

And they’re not remotely done. Unhappy with the restrictions on eligibility that Catholic and other religious adoption agencies put on families looking to take children into their homes, the act seeks to nationalize Massachusetts, New York, and California’s outright bans on religious adoption agencies’ right to operate according to conscience. Never mind that there are any number of secular adoption agencies with no traditional marriage guidelines; shutting down the organizations that invented adoption, the bill states, will “increase the number of homes available to foster children.”

Meanwhile, Catholic school and other forms of religious education, rare alternatives to increasingly failing and liberal public education, will be compelled by the act to teach a concept of marriage antithetical to their faith, as well as the popular but absurd claim that boys can be girls and girls can be boys. Religious education alternatives are already suffering under government COVID rules, with many that serve poor, inner-city children hardest hit, but vulnerability is a one-way street for the bill’s sponsors, who also target shelters and homes for homeless and battered women, demanding they admit men who say they’re ladies.

The same rules will apply to women’s sports, as well as their bathrooms and locker rooms, effectively nationalizing coastal states’ dangerous experiments on women (including children) trying to compete athletically with fairness, use the restroom, or simply shower in privacy.

Salons, too, will not be able to “discriminate” based on biology, opening the door in the United States for the Canadian nightmare where Jessica Yaniv — a man who identifies as a woman while still being attracted to women — sued to force female nail salon employees to wax his privates. You don’t have to be a woman to understand the level of sexual assault implicit in an adult man demanding a woman handle his privates for money or risk the force of law.

[End]

If you have daughters or granddaughters or nieces, know that this bill is a full-frontal assault on them. It is an assault on the rights of actual women, and there is not a single liberal prominent woman in America speaking out against it for fear of being cancelled by the Perpetual Outrage Mob.

This heinous piece of legislation passed the house on a party-line vote yesterday. So long as the senate filibuster rule remains intact, it has no chance of passage in the senate, but we all know that the Democrats plan to move to end that rule at some point this year.

The Democrat Party has been at war with organized religion, heterosexuality and biological women for years now, and this bill proves that that war is only continuing to heat up.

So much for “unity”.

That is all.

Biden Re-Starts Obama’s War in Syria

Well, now we know why congressional Democrats want China Joe to relinquish control of the nuclear codes. – Four years of peace was just too much for Democrat voters and our corrupt news media to stand, so they did everything they could to ensure that life-long warmonger China Joe Biden was installed into the presidency.  Last night, the fruits of their votes and constant propaganda operation against peacemaker Donald J. Trump paid off with the bombing of sites in Syria without any prior notice to congress or the American people, and, at least as of this writing early Friday morning, no White House or presidential statement afterwards attempting to justify this unilateral action.

None. Zip, Zero, Nada.

A Pentagon spokesman did issue a statement, but so far from our sock puppet president, bupkis.

From a story at the New York Post:

The US on Thursday launched an airstrike in Syria that targeted facilities used by  Iran-backed militia groups — the first military action taken by the Biden administration, officials said.

The Pentagon said the strike was in retaliation for a Feb. 15 rocket attack against a US military base at Erbil International Airport in Northern Iraq that killed a US-led coalition contractor and left others wounded, including an American service member.

“I’m confident in the target that we went after, we know what we hit,” Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin told reporters after the airstrike.

“We’re confident that that target was being used by the same Shia militants that conducted the [Feb. 15] strikes,” he said.

Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said the attack “destroyed multiple facilities at a border control point used by a number of Iranian- backed militant groups.”

[End]

Four years ago, then-President Trump made the mistake of assuming  his military and national security advisors were dealing with him truthfully when they told him he needed to lob some cruise missiles into Syria, and he fell for it. Immediately after the missiles landed, the President issued a statement explaining the rationale for the action, which of course he later discovered was false. Because that’s what the military/industrial/Swamp war machine does.

Later in his administration, in January of last year, President Trump hit the head terrorist on earth with a U.S. guided missile, taking him out at the Baghdad airport as he attempted to get out of Iraq following a meeting there. In response to that action, here is what private citizen Joe Biden had to say about it:

Oh. Hey, did China Joe have your “informed consent” when he lobbed missiles into Syria that no doubt killed and maimed innocent civilians last night? Yeah, didn’t think so.

The next day, here is what candidate Joe Biden had to say about how he would wield his power if elected president:

In fact, China Joe just used military power irresponsibly and as a first resort and has just gotten us back into another forever war in the Middle East, a war that he, working with Obama and John McCain, actually helped to start in the first place, creating and arming ISIS along the way. That’s the truth of Biden’s involvement in the Syrian civil war, and he is obviously bound and determined to crank it back up now.

Or let me amend that: China Joe is not in charge of anything. Let’s be honest about that. This decision was likely made at the Pentagon and someone might have let Biden know about it by sending him a message through his earpiece, just in case he was still awake eating tapioca pudding or Jello at 6:00 in the evening.

Biden himself is so out of it that yesterday he had to be reminded by Kamala Harris to put his mask on at an event at the White House. That reminder came as he was walking over to try to shake hands with some special guest, an act he has been instructed to avoid for more than a year now due to all the COVID pretense.

Check this out:

This man has no idea where he is or what he is doing at any given moment. He hasn’t made a statement about the missile strikes on Syria because he has no clue why they happened.

But this gets even better. Here’s what Biden’s spokesperson tweeted after the Trump missile strike in 2017:

Think anyone in the White House Press Corps – outside of Fox’s Peter Doocey – will repeat Jen Circle Back Psaki’s statement back to her and ask her to explain why this time is different at today’s press briefing?

Yeah, don’t hold your breath.

That is all.

The Kids are Back in Cages Thanks to Joe Biden

The kids are back in the cages, but the Democrat toadies in our news media refuse to call them that now that a Democrat is in office. – One of the Trump policies that China Joe immediately reversed upon being installed in office was an immigration policy that allowed for the rapid deportation of children who had illegally crossed the border in the company of adults who are not their parents. This was a humanitarian policy that quickly reunited most of these kids with their parents rather than having them spend months in border facilities as their cases were being adjudicated.

Biden reversed this policy out of simple spite, and in order to facilitate the illegal immigration of these adults, who the Democrats intend to turn into a whole new, huge voting block in the coming months. But now, of course, we have to do something with those kids, so they’re back in the “cages” that were built during the Obama/Biden years, but which Trump’s policies had largely emptied out, along with a new set of enclosures that look like shipping containers.

From a story at Axios:

More than 700 children who crossed from Mexico into the United States without their parents were in Border Patrol custody as of Sunday, according to an internal Customs and Border Protection document obtained by Axios.

Why it matters: The current backup is yet another sign of a brewing crisis for President Biden — and a worsening dilemma for these vulnerable children. Biden is finding it’s easier to talk about preventing warehousing kids at the southern border than solving the problem.

  • Making matters worse, border crossings usually peak in the spring, and it’s only February.

Behind the scenes: Of the more than 700 kids waiting to be transferred to shelters overseen by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, more than 200 had been held in these Border Patrol stations for more than 48 hours.

  • Nine had been detained for longer than the agreed-upon limit of 72 hours, according to the internal document, which timestamped the data current as of 8:15 a.m. on Feb. 21.

During Wednesday’s White House media briefing, press secretary Jen Psaki acknowledged some kids had been held four or five days — or more.

  • She blamed some of the delays on the bad weather that shut down Texas last week, saying some long-term shelters “did not have power and were not in a place where they had the capacity to take in these kids and do it safely.”
  • She also pushed back — hard — on an equivalency between the current and past administrations’ handling of children, who generally come from countries in Central America, at the U.S.-Mexico border.
  • While president, Donald Trump was criticized for separating children from their parents. That policy is no longer in place, although rising numbers of children arriving now are unaccompanied, meaning they are detained alone anyway.

[End]

Note how the Axios Democrat toady twists himself in logical knots trying to defend the Biden people, and laughably defends the inept defense of this despicably inhuman policy by Jen Psaki.

The fact of the matter is that this Biden policy reversal was done to intentionally encourage human child trafficking so the Democrat Party has more illegal aliens in this country to turn into voters if they can shove an amnesty bill through congress. That’s the premeditated intent.

Reporters who provide cover for this are nothing more than ghouls.

Thursday News Roundup: Even the Media and Democrats Know Biden’s Unstable, and Springsteen Gets a Pass

Today’s China Joe Biden Energy Policy Impact Update. – The price of a gallon of gasoline has now risen by 50 cents since Election Day, 2020.

Thanks, Democrats!

Today’s Authoritarian Thought Control Update. – Facebook last week started censoring linking or cutting and pasting any news stories coming from Australia because the government there is cracking down on its monopolistic practices. This week, Twitter has begun suspending accounts whose messages it clams are “undermining faith in NATO.”

Joseph Goebbels would be so proud.

Here’s the reward for announcing you’re going to start doing a new podcast with Barack Obama:

I think maybe it’s time Bruce Springsteen cuts all those songs about how unfair the justice system is to the “working man” out of his repertoire.

Even the media knows Joe Biden is mentally impaired. – How do you know that’s the case? When you see multiple news reports doing “fact checks” talking about how it is perfectly normal to indefinitely delay delivering a State of the Union – style address to congress.

First, there indeed is not a requirement in the constitution or law for any president to deliver a state of the union speech. The constitution simply requires the president to update congress on the state of the union “from time to time,” and the form of that update could be a speech, or it could just be in writing as several early U.S. presidents chose to do. But over time, it has become an annual tradition for the president to deliver a speech.

In its story making excuses for Biden’s failure to make any such speech, USA Today notes that none of the last 6 presidents have chosen to deliver what was called a “state of the union” speech to congress during their first year in office, although they all, including Donald Trump, chose to make a speech without tagging it with that name. Biden’s White House initially set this past Tuesday as a tentative date for his giving such a speech, but that day came and went with little media notice, because to notice it would be to invite questions about Biden’s capacity for delivering such a speech.

Indeed, when you think about it, why would a Democrat president turn down the opportunity to deliver a nationally-televised speech to a congress in which his own party has nominal control of both the House and Senate? It’s a tailor-made opportunity to show off all the things you’ve already done and all you intend to do for the rest of the year with a captive audience of tens of millions of Americans. That’s certainly how Donald Trump used the opportunity in 2017 and how Barack Obama used it in 2009.

The USA Today excuse-making piece details how the White House initially said the speech would be this month, and how his spokesperson, Jen “Circle Back” Psaki, falsely claims that no such speech was ever contemplated:

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said on Feb. 16 that Biden’s first appearance before a joint session “was never planned to be in February,” even though Biden said in January that it would be, according to Axios.

Pelosi said on Feb. 11 that a joint session wouldn’t likely be convened until after Congress passes a COVID-19 relief bill, potentially delaying Biden’s first address until March, Roll Call reported.

“We won’t be doing any of that until we pass our COVID bill. That’s the first order of business,” she said.

[End]

So, why would China Joe’s handlers be reluctant to put their sock puppet out before the American people for such a prime PR opportunity? The answer’s pretty clear, isn’t it? They don’t want the American people en masse to get a good, long look at this guy as he struggles to read text from a teleprompter. Plus, they’re scared to death about what he might blurt out in the middle of the thing, or that he might start repeating the stuff they’re saying to him through the earpiece he constantly wears out loud, something he has already done several times now.

The man is a potential pratfall on feeble legs, and they know it. That is why he hasn’t already delivered a speech to a joint session of congress, and why he most likely never will.

His fellow Democrats in congress know he’s an accident waiting to happen, too. – They’re so worried about Biden’s advancing impairment that they want him to give up sole possession of the nuclear codes.

I swear I’m not making this up:

From the story at JustTheNews.com:

Multiple House Democrats have signed a letter urging President Biden to look at ways he can end his sole authority as president to order the use of America’s nuclear weapons.

“As president, you will have the final say on any changes to U.S. nuclear policy. We respectfully request that you, as president, review ways in which you can end the sole authority you have to launch a nuclear attack, and to install additional checks and balances into the system,” the letter states.

The letter notes that there have been multiple possible systems proposed and lists several of them. One proposal involves “Requiring additional officials in the line of presidential succession, starting with the vice president and the speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives — neither of whom can be removed by the president if they disagree — to concur with a launch order, and utilizing the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s tracking of those officials to ensure prompt communication.”

https://twitter.com/politico/status/1364251316852322305

That’s three dozen House Democrats – Biden’s own Party – tacitly acknowledging how little confidence they have in the sock puppet they helped to install in the White House.

We are so screwed.

The perks of being a federal employee never end in a Democrat administration. – Check this out:

Think about that: You get $1400 one time, they get it every week for 15 weeks. My daughter has been home schooling her two daughters for 11 months now, and hasn’t received a dime from the feds for doing so. But if you’re a federal employee, you’re fixing to get 15 weeks of paid leave, which not coincidentally should get you through the rest of the school year. And my daughter and her husband’s taxes will help pay for that.

Infuriating.

Tuesday News Roundup: The Supreme Court Betrays America and the Constitution in Pennsylvania Decision

Hey, remember how your Democrat friends all told you what a wonderful, fair, cerebral, non-partisan judge Merrick Garland is supposed to be? – Yeah, he’s just another leftwing partisan Democrat who refuses to honestly answer questions in a congressional hearing:

“I don’t know…I don’t know…I don’t know…I don’t know.” He’s the perfect attorney general for this sock puppet presidency.

We are so screwed.

Today’s Short-Term Memory Reminder. – I’m old enough to remember when it was Donald Trump who was supposed to be a totalitarian. But hey, that was always a lie – everyone with functioning synapses in their cranial cavities knows it is the Democrat Party that has always striven to take our country down the road to despotism, and today’s Democrats are no exception to that 200-year rule.

Yesterday, we discovered that congressional Democrats are now trying to bully cable/streaming companies into dropping news networks that they do not approve of. Take a look:

Hilariously, these authoritarian Dems pretend to base their efforts at censorship on “moral or ethical principles”:

Image

It’s absolutely surreal. You could never make this stuff up if it didn’t already exist.

Speaking of authoritarians… – Congressman Ro Khanna served as campaign manager for The Commie, Bernie Sanders, for a very good reason: He’s a commie, too.

You don’t have to believe me – just listen to him talk to some fake journalist on CNN about his desire to put any business that can’t afford to pay a $15 minimum wage out of business:

That’s pure communism. You either redistribute your wealth exactly the way the government demands you do it, or you don’t stay in business. Profits don’t matter; your business’s value to the community doesn’t matter; the fact you’d have to fire half your employees in order to pay that hourly wage doesn’t matter; you either do as your government masters tell you to do or you don’t do business.

And Ro Khanna and Bernie Sanders and 2/3rds of the congressional Democrat caucus will the thrilled to see you and your jobs go. Despicable.

How about this walk down memory lane? – Check this out as China Joe Biden tells David Letterman that he was arrested for going into the U.S. senate chamber and taking over the presiding officer’s seat, just as that nitwit in the viking horns did on January 6:

Now, there’s little doubt Biden’s lying here, given that he lies with the regularity that most people urinate, but man, what a thing to admit to doing. Just another inconvenient little video for the Democrats and their mindless voters.

Right on cue, the Supreme Court betrays the American people one more time. – I warned you all a few weeks ago that the decision by the Supreme Court to schedule a day to consider whether to formally hear three of the Trump election challenges in Pennsylvania, Georgia and Michigan would likely end badly for us and the Constitution.

Many were excited because they labored under the misimpression that the Court had agreed to hear these three cases, but in reality all it was doing was trying to decide whether or not to put any of them on the docket. I also told you that it was almost certain that the Court would refuse to hear the Georgia or Michigan cases, but that it should hear the Pennsylvania case since it so clearly involved a stark constitutional violation in which the state’s courts changed voting rules by judicial fiat. But I also warned you that the justices would find some technical excuse not to hear that case as well.

All of that came to fruition on Monday, as the Court refused to hear any of the three cases:

From the story at National Review:

Few things are worse for public confidence in elections than having the rules changed in the middle of the game (or after it). An epidemic of late-in-the-day changes to the rules was particularly corrosive in 2020. Courts are ill-equipped to referee those changes when partisan tempers are running hot. The Supreme Court just threw away its last opportunity to remedy that problem before the next election cycle.

The Court this morning turned away the remaining challenges to the 2020 election in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Georgia, Arizona, and Michigan. Some of these challenges were legally meritless, and none of them offered any legitimate grounds to change the outcome of the presidential election, but the Pennsylvania case in particular raised a serious, recurring issue of election law: whether state courts or state executive officials can use the general, open-ended terms of state constitutional provisions to throw out specific rules passed by state legislatures governing federal elections. Articles I and II of the Constitution reserve to state legislatures the power to set rules for federal elections.

That’s exactly what happened in Pennsylvania: The Pennsylvania supreme court used the Pennsylvania Constitution’s general guarantees of “free and equal” elections and “free exercise of the right of suffrage” as an excuse to invalidate the state legislature’s explicit deadline for mail-in ballots to be received by 8 p.m. on Election Day — the same time the in-person polls close. That deadline was enacted in 2019 and left untouched in revisions to the mail-in ballot rules during the pandemic in 2020. The Court should have heard the case before Election Day, in order t0 ensure that the rules of the road were set in advance. Refusing to hear the case either before the election or after the election guarantees that the issue remains unsettled for the next election.

Justice Clarence Thomas, joined by Justices Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch, wrote a dissent blasting the Court for repeatedly ducking this issue (Alito added his own dissent). Normally, federal courts will not hear cases once they are moot, and that would normally be the situation here: Justice Thomas noted that there was no evidence in the record that the Pennsylvania deadline extension changed the result of any federal election…

[The Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s] decision to rewrite the rules seems to have affected too few ballots to change the outcome of any federal election. But that may not be the case in the future. These cases provide us with an ideal opportunity to address just what authority nonlegislative officials have to set election rules, and to do so well before the next election cycle. The refusal to do so is inexplicable. . . . An election system lacks clear rules when, as here, different officials dispute who has authority to set or change those rules. This kind of dispute brews confusion because voters may not know which rules to follow. Even worse, with more than one system of rules in place, competing candidates might each declare victory under different sets of rules.

That does sound familiar, doesn’t it? Thomas detailed why contests involving mail-in ballots, which were once treated with skepticism even by the New York Times and election-law experts, were more complicated to litigate quickly, and thus presented even greater mootness problems: “Five to six weeks for judicial testing is difficult enough for straightforward cases. For factually complex cases, compressing discovery, testimony, and appeals into this timeline is virtually impossible.” He specifically noted the compressed timeline imposed in presidential elections by the Electoral Count Act of 1887. And Justice Thomas warned of the particular problems the Court faces in trying to handle politically charged cases in the middle of voting, pointing to a South Carolina case where the Court ended up ordering one rule for ballots cast after its decision, and another for ballots already cast.

Note that two of President Trump’s three nominees for the Court ruled against the American people and the Constitution in this decision, and you see how screwed we all really are.

Be careful out there.

Sunday News Roundup: Fact-checkers Disappear as Dems Lard up the ‘Stimulus’ Bill With Pork

I write at length in another piece this morning about the media smear of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for putting his state’s elderly population first in line to receive the COVID vaccines. But that is far from the only media smear of DeSantis happening right now.

The Florida Governor is also being smeared for…wait for it…his efforts to ensure election integrity! No kidding:

From the story at BigLeaguePolitics:

Florida had the most transparent and efficient election anywhere in the country,” DeSantis said. “Other states took days, weeks, and even months to count their votes. And yet Florida, by midnight on election night, we had 99% reporting and 11 million votes counted, tabulated, and put out to the public.”

Florida’s legislature had moved to reform the state’s election practices in the interests of reporting brevity and election integrity following the disputed 2000 presidential election. The results of Florida’s presidential election were available and clear on election night in November, with other states implementing mass-in voting for the first time struggling to report results for several days or even weeks.

DeSantis’ proposal wouldn’t eliminate mail-in voting in Florida. It would merely require every voter who wishes to vote by mail to request a mail-in ballot every election, as opposed to mailing millions of ballots without verifying addresses and identities.

Under the package, only someone’s family member could drop off their ballot, in a move designed to prevent suspect political front groups from “harvesting” ballots. This would establish a clear chain of custody from the voter to the state without unnecessary third parties.

The comprehensive package would also require counties and municipalities to make election results public and transparent in timely fashion.

[End]

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

But wait, there’s more!

DeSantis is also under fire this weekend for taking this action on Friday:

That’s right: He’s the only governor in the country who is paying appropriate tribute to the single most influential media figure in our nation’s history. So naturally, the DC/New York Democrat media propaganda machine – who all hated Rush – are up in arms smearing DeSantis over this move, too.

If that doesn’t convince you that DeSantis is right at the top of potential GOP presidential nominees for 2024, then you aren’t paying attention. Assuming Donald Trump chooses not to make another bid, DeSantis is in fact the most likely to become the nominee at this moment in time.

I’m old enough to remember when a U.S. President got blamed for every one of these deaths by the corrupt national news media. – Yeah, but that was a month ago. Now that a Democrat sock puppet is in office, he won’t get blamed for the fact that more than 100,000 Americans supposedly died from COVID-19 during the first month of his presidency:

That, of course, is according to the official count, which we have all known for almost a year now is radically overblown. But still, 100,000 in a month seems like a lot, doesn’t it? Seems like something CNN and MSNBC and all of your local news stations would maybe take a moment to note, and maybe even display ticker at the bottom of the screen as a constant reminder. Right?

But all of those tickers have magically disappeared now, gone the moment China Joe Biden was sworn into the presidency. Funny how that works.

Guess what else has magically disappeared from the corrupt news media? – If you said “fact-checkers,” you win the prize. Remember how CNN, MSNBC, the Washington Post, the New York Times and all the alphabet broadcast networks had full-time presidential fake fact-checkers on staff to obsess over every word a certain ex-president had to say?

Yeah, they’re all gone now:

From the story at Mediaite:

CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale was one of the busiest people in the cable news business for several years, but he has almost completely disappeared from the network’s programming over the past month or so. What happened?

Dale became a veritable household name among cable news viewers during Trump’s presidency after his work for the Toronto Star, tallying and debunking false or misleading statements by Trump, landed him a national gig with CNN.

Since joining CNN in June of 2019, Dale has appeared or been mentioned on the network more than once every other day on average, according to the Internet Archive.

That exposure dropped sharply after November 4, and according to the TV Eyes media monitoring database, since President Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20, Dale has only appeared on the network once. And that appearance, last Friday, was to fact-check Donald Trump’s lawyers.

[End]

That’s right: CNN’s “fact-checker” has made only one on-air appearance since China Joe was installed into the White House, and that was to “fact-check” lawyers for Donald Trump.

Nevermind that you could have kept an army of fact-checkers busy for a full week just to correct all the rank BS Biden spewed during his CNN town hall last week with Cooper Anderson, er, Anderson Cooper, that job will not be available for the next four years because it doesn’t fit neatly into the agenda of the Democrat Party and its army of operatives who infest the national news media.

*sigh*

What’s the most predictable thing in the world? – Democrats pushing pork.

That’s what they’re doing in this $1.9 trillion “stimulus” bill – larding it up with hundreds of billions of dollars in wasteful spending on leftist political projects:

From the story at RedState.com:

House Democrats finally released their long-awaited $1.9 trillion Wuhan coronavirus relief bill.

It probably wouldn’t take a rocket scientist to predict that it would be packed full of goodies for the friends of Democrats like the prior “relief” bills, seeming less about “relief” to help desperate Americans and more like doling out pork for pet causes.

Same song, 10,000th verse from your Democrat Party. Some things never change.

That is all.

The COVID Pandemic Could be Ending – and That’s a Real Problem for Biden

Lots of media chatter happening today about the dramatic fall in COVID-19 infection and hospitalization rates since the first of the year. Here are some examples:

It seems the vaccines that were fast-tracked by the Trump Administration are proving even more effective than first thought, thanks to the rapid distribution and administering program implemented by the Trump team, which had more than 1 million doses being delivered every day by the time China Joe Biden was installed into the presidency. That reality, combined with the build-up of herd immunity in the country is now leading to a dramatic drop in the infection, hospitalization and death rates related to the viral gift from China.

From the New York Post story linked above:

A Johns Hopkins professor and surgeon says that the coronavirus could be “mostly gone” by April.

Marty Makary, who teaches at the university’s School of Medicine and Bloomberg School of Public Health, said in an opinion piece published in the Wall Street Journal on Friday that daily infections have declined by 77 percent since January.

“There is reason to think the country is racing toward an extremely low level of infection,” Makary wrote. “As more people have been infected, most of whom have mild or no symptoms, there are fewer Americans left to be infected. At the current trajectory, I expect COVID will be mostly gone by April, allowing Americans to resume normal life.”

Vaccinations and the high number of people who have already been infected in the US — more than 28 million — could contribute to herd immunity in the spring, Makary said. Herd immunity occurs when enough people become immune to a virus, ending its spread. Makary also said it would protect against new strains of the coronavirus from spreading.

“When the chain of virus transmission has been broken in multiple places, it’s harder for it to spread — and that includes the new strains,” he said.

[End]

Of course, none of this is in any way in the Biden/Fauci plan to keep Americans holed up in their homes and wearing double-masks into perpetuity. Even worse, it is crystal clear that these suddenly much more positive outlooks are the result of actions taken by the Trump administration, and that neither Biden nor his evil handlers can take credit for any of it.

Thus, the only recourse available for the Biden people to take is of course to try to revise history, which is why we saw the DC Swamp Sock Puppet-in-Chief say this on Friday:

BIDEN: “Just over four weeks ago, America had no real plan to vaccinate most of the country. My predecessor, as my mother would say, ‘failed to order enough vaccines,’ failed to mobilize the effort to administer the shots… That changed the moment we took office.”

This is obviously an outright lie, but hey, he’s a Democrat, so what else would we expect?

To be clear: Nothing changed the moment Biden took office. In fact, it is painfully obvious from his and Fauci’s constantly-shifting narratives that they had no plan whatsoever related to COVID-19 on January 20, and still don’t have any real plan – other than to needlessly keep schools closed at the behest of teacher’s unions – today, one full month later.

And now, their plan to keep Americans frightened and masked for years to come is imperiled by the solutions made possible by the executive actions of Donald J. Trump.

For actual Americans, the potential for their lives to return to something resembling normalcy is cause for celebration. But for Biden and his fellow Democrats, it’s the worst possible scenario.

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

That is all.

Saturday News Roundup: Biden Declares that ‘America is back’ to Bowing to International Despots

This is what the left has wrought. – Speaking before the G-7 Summit on Friday, China Joe Biden declared “America is back,” and unilaterally surrendered American interests to Europe, China, and Russia. Because that’s what internationalists do. Calling an end to “America first” diplomacy, Biden signaled that the U.S. government would ensure that the interest of its citizens once again become subservient to other nations in a return to globalism.

From the story at DailyWire:

President Biden told leaders at the G-7 summit on Friday,the same day the U.S. reentered the Paris Agreement, that the days of “America First” diplomacy championed by former President Trump were over, according toThe New York Times.

As The New York Post, which cited Biden’s intent to declare on Friday that the “America First” era was over, noted, “Biden has swiftly dismantled Trump’s foreign policy agenda, which saw the U.S. withdraw from the World Health Organization, the Paris Agreement and the Iran nuclear deal, which Trump believed were against the nation’s interests.”

One official told the Post, “Now he will get the opportunity as president of the United States early in his term to declare that America is back and the trans-Atlantic alliance is back. He will look forward to driving home the core proposition that the trans-Atlantic alliance is a cornerstone for American engagement in the world in the 21st century, just as it was in the 20th.”

Biden claimed, “America is back, the trans-Atlantic alliance is back … we are not looking backward.” He stated, “We have to prove that our model isn’t a relic of history. We must demonstrate that democracies can still deliver for our people in this changed world. That is our galvanizing mission. Democracy doesn’t happen by accident. We have to defend it. Strengthen it. Renew it.”

The G-7 group includes the United States, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom in its organization.

[End]

So, we’re back in the worthless Paris Climate Accords, in which we are the only nation on earth that, thanks to the use of natural gas in power generation to displace coal, has already met our emissions goals through 2025. We will now fork over billions every year to be redistributed to the world’s other grasping nations under that agreement.

We’re back in the World Health Organization, that mouthpiece for China whose budget we pay a wildly disproportionate share. And we’re back “negotiating” with Iran so that we can go back to subsidizing the Mullahs’ pursuit of becoming a nuclear power, as we did during the Obama/Biden years.

All of this in Biden’s first month serving as our national DC Swamp sock puppet-in-chief.

We are so screwed.

The Sock Puppet was traveling yesterday. – During a trip to Michigan to visit a facility run by COVID vaccine manufacturer Pfizer, the Sock Puppet told reporters that the economy – which was in a major recovery while Donald Trump was still in the White House, but has faded since – won’t recover until “we beat this virus.”

From the story at The Daily Caller:

President Joe Biden said Friday that the American economy won’t recover “until we beat this virus.”

“I got a letter from more than 400 mayors from big cities and small towns. They understand we’re not gonna get our economy back in shape and the millions of people back to work until we beat this virus,” Biden said during a visit to a Pfizer facility in Michigan that manufactures coronavirus vaccines.

[End]

Meanwhile, this was what his brother Frank Biden was doing Thursday night:

Image

That’s Frank on the left, partying with Floyd Mayweather and a couple of his mask-less pals. Yeah, the Biden family’s really serious about beating this virus, huh?

Repeat after me: The fence is permanent. The fence is permanent. The fence is permanent. – To no one’s real surprise, the head of the DC Capitol Police yesterday was making the rounds, urging members of congress to continue funding the wall, er, ‘fence’ around the capitol building and the 7,000 National Guard troops who remain deployed in DC through at least September.

From the story at JustTheNews.com:

U.S. Capitol Police officials are telling Washington lawmakers the recently installed security fencing should stay up until at least September, citing continuing security concerns, according to a news report Friday.

The plan is being reported by CNN, based on information from a source familiar with the matter.

The fencing was installed after the Jan. 6 breach of the U.S. Capitol and before the Jan. 20 inauguration of President Biden.

The roughly 7-foot-high, chain-linked fence, topped with razor wire, was supposed to be removed in March. But its future, like many matters in Washington, is caught in political crosswinds.

“While there is no specific, credible threat to the homeland at this time, DHS continues to gather, review, and analyze new intelligence each day and regularly updates its federal, state, local, tribal, and non-governmental partners on the results of those efforts,” a Department of Homeland Security spokesperson told CNN. “The most significant terrorism-related threat currently facing the nation comes from lone offenders and small groups of individuals inspired by domestic extremist ideological beliefs, including those based on false narratives spread over social media and other online platforms.”

[End]

Get that? He wants it to stay there through “at least” September, at which time he will no doubt urge it remain for another year or two years or four years or however long the DC Swamp believes they must “temporarily” extend it until the public has completely forgotten the days when it wasn’t there and become fully acclimated to it. In other words, as long as it takes to boil the proverbial frog.

The wall, er, ‘fence’ is permanent, as is the National Guard presence in the nation’s capitol. It is permanent because the denizens of the swamp know this government is illegitimate, and they know that we know it. Just as is the case in third-world countries all over the globe, the only way to ensure an illegitimate government remains in power is trough the force and protection of the military.

The Capitol wall, er, ‘fence’ is part of that protection. Washington, DC is a police state. Get used to it.

From our You Just Can’t Make This Stuff Up file… – Try to imagine the outrage if this internal Coca Cola training regime urged employees to be “less black” or “less Asian” or “less Hispanic”:

I would say this is unbelievably racist, but hey, it’s all too believable in today’s society.

If Coca-Cola management attempted to apply this training to Black, Asian or Hispanic folks, the company would be hounded out of business by the media and the government, and deservedly so. But because the company’s bigotry is directed at White people, no one in the corrupt news media will even bother to report the story.

Hey, what’s wrong? China Joe Biden says it’s all just a cultural difference.:

Hilarious. Does anyone doubt for a single second that Alisyn Camerota voted for Joe Biden? Of course she did.

Friday News Roundup: Cuomo’s Problems Continue to Mount as Biden’s Broken COVID Promises Pile Up

You just could never make this stuff up, folks. – If you thought that the Democrats’ second failed impeachment effort directed at former President Donald Trump would put an end to their five-year campaign of persecution towards him, well, think again. It seems that hounding this man is all the Democrats in congress know how to do anymore, an extremely hard addiction to just put down cold turkey.

Thus it was that on Thursday,  a group of literally insane, hate-filled House Democrats introduced HR 484, ironically titled the “No Glory for Hate Act”:

May be an image of text

Yes, that’s right: Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives have nothing better to do than waste their time writing bills that would ban Donald Trump from being buried in Arlington National Cemetery, where he most likely had no desire to be buried in any event. After all, why would a man whose entire rationale for running for the presidency was to dismantle the DC Swamp want to be buried on a hill overlooking the freaking DC Swamp?

Just one more glowing example of why, if Democrats didn’t already exist, you could never in a million years make them up.

Today’s Short-Term Memory Reminder: Just a reminder that the same liberals who have spend the last 24 hours feigning outrage about Ted Cruz going to Cancun have expressed ZERO outrage about…

 – Gavin Newsom at French Laundry
 – Ralph Northam at his NC beach house
 – Lori Lightfoot getting her hair done
 – Nancy Pelosi getting her hair done
 – Nancy Pelosi showing of her $50k Sub-zero refrigerator/freezer set filled with gallon upon gallon of designer ice cream
et cetera, et cetera, et cetera
Pardon me, libs, if I don’t take your outrage about Sen. Cruz very seriously at all.

Andrew Cuomo Killing the Old Folks Update. – The problems from his mass-sentencing of thousands of his state’s nursing home residents to death in their nursing homes continue to pile up for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. The scandal has now grown to such proportions that even sleazy old Alec Baldwin is so repulsed that he felt the need to weight in his thoughts on the matter yesterday:

Man, when even a slug like Alec Baldwin finds your behavior too sleazy to defend, you know you’re in trouble. Of course, note that Baldwin, a hard-core leftist ghoul, is not angry about Cuomo’s killing the old folks: He’s just mad because Cuomo tried to make another Democrat an offer he couldn’t refuse.

Back to the topic of Cuomo’s killing of the old folks, The Empire State Center for Public Policy issued the first formal report on the matter yesterday, finding that Cuomo is responsible for the death of more than 1,000 New Yorkers:

From the story at the New York Post:

The Cuomo administration’s controversial directive for nursing homes to accept COVID-19 patients amid the pandemic likely did lead to a spike in resident deaths, an analysis of its own data revealed Thursday.

The study by the nonprofit Empire Center for Public Policy tied “several hundred and possibly more than 1,000” fatalities to the since-rescinded March 25, 2020, order that critics have blamed for spreading the coronavirus among vulnerable seniors.

The analysis also suggests the controversial mandate is “associated with” more than one in six of 5,780 nursing deaths statewide between late March and early May.

“The findings contradict a central conclusion of the state Department of Health’s July 6 report on coronavirus in nursing homes, which said, among other things: ‘Admission policies were not a significant factor in nursing home fatalities,’ and ‘the data do not show a consistent relationship between admissions and increased mortality,’ ” according to a draft report prepared by the Empire Center.

The DOH report primarily blamed the spread of COVID-19 in nursing homes on infected but asymp­tomatic staffers and visitors, and has repeatedly been cited by Gov. Andrew Cuomo to deny any responsibility — even though he himself had warned on March 29, “Coronavirus in a nursing home is like fire in dry grass.”

[End]

Oh. As I note elsewhere this morning, the corrupt news media is doing its best to try to shift focus away from the Cuomo story, but is having a hard time doing it as new revelations just keep coming to light. Cuomo is their darling, after all, every but as much as were the Creepy Porn Lawyer and the pedo-hugging members of the Lincoln Project.

It remains to be seen how much longer this focus on Cuomo’s crimes can last, but it sure is fun while it’s happening. This man is a ghoul whose behavior is more deserving of prison time than the Governor’s mansion.

I’m old enough to remember when China Joe promised to base his COVID decisions on “science.” – Yeah, those were good times, weren’t they? Remember those promises during the campaign about having a real “plan” to hit the ground running on COVID his first day in office? Remember the promises about speeding up vaccine distribution and getting our kids back in school?

Yeah, those were all lies. But hey, Biden’s a Democrat, so of course they were all lies. But now it turns out that Biden and fellow sock puppet Kamala Harris have already broken so many promises that even some Democrats are tiring of it. Jake Tapper, a Democrat agent posing as a journalist at CNN, went off on Democrat hack Abby Phillip on his show yesterday, after she recited some smarmy lies trying to justify keeping the schools closed:

From the story at Redstate:

“Why is it so tough for the Biden administration to give a straight, clear answer on this question of when schools should open?” Jake Tapper wondered on Wednesday.

“I think that they are torn,” Phillip replied. “Look, the teachers unions are a very powerful Democratic constituency and they feel very strongly that teachers should at the very least all be vaccinated before returning to the school.

It’s delusional. Most schools are already open, without problems. But the Biden team doesn’t even want to admit that. Because to admit that would push the question on the rest. So they do this weird thing of setting goals that have already been met before Biden even came in and until yesterday gave these evasive responses to the questions about vaccinations.

As we previously reported, CNN’s John Berman chastised Kamala Harris’ spokes person, Symone Sanders for not giving a straight answer on vaccination of teachers.

CNN isn’t the only one busting the Biden team on this, even WaPo made up a video of all the changing stories from the Biden team.

[End]

For the 100th time: There is no ‘science’ behind keeping our schools closed for COVID. There is only politics. Period. The politics at play here are due to the fact that Biden and his handlers are afraid to offend the powerful teacher’s unions.

That’s all it is. All else is lies.

That is all.

Biden Wastes no Time Cranking up the U.S. Interventionist War Machine

I’m old enough to remember when Democrats pretended to be in favor of peace. – The Biden administration is already well down the road in its campaign to put  an end to all the peace that broke out all over the Middle East during the Donald Trump presidency. China Joe hadn’t been installed in the Oval Office for more than 48 hours before he ordered thousands of additional U.S. military personnel to move into hot spots in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, as he and his handlers prepare to restart wars without end and revive the fortunes of the military/industrial complex that Eisenhower warned us about and Trump had done so much to neuter.

The Biden war buildup continued this week with new arms sales to the governments of Chile and Egypt, despite the latter’s horrible record on human rights abuses. Unsurprisingly, the arms sales benefit weapons maker Raytheon, in which China Joe’s new Secretary of Defense owns $1.7 million in stock, which he was supposed to have already divested but of course has not done so.

From a story at Al Jazeera:

The United States approved an arms sale worth nearly $200m to Egypt but vowed to press human rights issues after an American activist reported his family had been harassed.

The Biden administration – which has vowed to end support for Saudi Arabia’s offensive operations in Yemen’s devastating war and is reviewing a major jet sale to the United Arab Emirates – said it approved the sale of 168 tactical missiles to Egypt.

The $197m sale of the Raytheon-made Rolling Airframe Missiles was requested by the Egyptian navy to improve defence in coastal areas and around the Red Sea, the US Department of State said.

The department said in a statement it approved the sale, subject to congressional review, as Egypt “continues to be an important strategic partner in the Middle East”.

Biden has vowed a tougher stance on human rights after his predecessor Donald Trump courted Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, whom he reportedly called “my favourite dictator”, in part for his cooperation with Israel.

[End]

If you are a parent with military-age children, you might want to start educating them about what is happening here. This is just the beginning of a new buildup to re-establish the Middle East as a theater for U.S. intervention into civil wars and conflicts between nations that have largely had their militaries armed by either the U.S., Russia or China. Proxy wars designed mainly to be used as tests for military preparedness and new weapons systems.

The Biden effort to kill the U.S. domestic oil and gas industry is also a big part of this, designed to intentionally make our country more dependent on the Middle East for oil resources and establish the rationale for intervention into what are largely civil conflicts. The inevitable return to this kind of interventionist foreign policy is perhaps the single most tragic consequence of the theft of the 2020 election. The irony is that it will be the college-aged dupes who voted in such large percentages for Biden who will be shipping over to these war-torn areas and returning with missing limbs or in body bags, all so the warmongering politicians in DC can continue to personally profit from the military/industrial complex.

That’s the truth, and we should not be shy about saying it.

That is all.

Wednesday News Roundup: CNN Hosts Biden’s Big Lies as Lincoln Project’s Big Lie Disintegrates

China Joe Biden held a townhall on CNN last night, and never managed to mention the 4 million Texans freezing in the dark without electricity through the course of the event. That’s what Democrats refer to as “unity.”

Biden did manage to lie a lot, though, par for the course for any Democrat politician. He started with this whopper, telling Anderson Cooper that “we didn’t have it [the coronavirus vaccine] when we came into office.”:

For the record, vaccines began on December 12 of last year, and were being delivered at a pace of 1 million per day on January 20, when China Joe was installed into the presidency. Cooper, of course, in his role as willing dupe for the Democrat Party, did nothing to try to correct the record for CNN’s paltry viewing audience.

Biden was telling the truth here, though, when he told Cooper that he wakes up every morning wondering where he is:

He was also telling the truth that when he said that he was unaware that people of different races were allowed to date or marry until Donald Trump was president:

You could never make this stuff up, folks.

Biden also performed his duty as a willing dupe for the ChiComs, assuring the ever-credulous Cooper that genocide by the ChiCom government was really just cool, since they have their own cultural norms over there:

What a disgrace this man is. Biden has been wrong about literally everything for the last half-century, and remains wrong about literally everything today. That reality was no threat to most of us when he was just a senator or Obama’s clownshow vice president. But as president, he presents a true clear and present danger to all of us.

Speaking of clownshow vice presidents, Biden is so utterly incapable of handling the duties of the presidency that he’s having Vice President Kamala Harris make calls to foreign leaders on his behalf. This is not really surprising given the fact that Biden’s handlers are no doubt scared to death of what he might blurt out while on a call with some random head of state. Besides, Harris needs the training since she will almost certainly be taking over for good soon.

 

From the story at JustTheNews.com:

During her brief tenure as vice president, Kamala Harris has already had calls with world leaders, a duty typically performed by the president.

Harris spoke on Monday to French President Emmanuel Macron, a leader who President Biden had already spoken with last month on Jan. 24.

“Vice President Harris and President Macron agreed on the need for close bilateral and multilateral cooperation to address COVID-19, climate change, and support democracy at home and around the world,” according to the White House. “They also discussed numerous regional challenges, including those in the Middle East and Africa, and the need to confront them together. The Vice President thanked President Macron for his leadership on the issue of gender equality and for France’s contribution to NASA’s Mars 2020 Perseverance rover.”

Harris earlier this month spoke to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, another figure President Biden had spoken with last month.

The Epoch Times reported that during his time in office, Vice President Mike Pence never had calls with either Trudeau or Macron, but the outlet noted that Pence did participate in some in-person visits with world leaders.

[End]

So there you go. Get used to seeing and reading that, because you’ll be seeing and reading on a daily basis soon enough.

Meanwhile, here is what le Grande Buffoon, New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio, is spending his time these days:

Bread and circuses! Are you not entertained, New Yorkers?

Oh, hey, remember how Lincoln Project co-founder Steve Schmidt gave us a likely made-up story about having been molested by a boy scout leader when he was 13 in order to curry public sympathy and present a self-justifying narrative for why he didn’t do anything to stop the predatory pedo activities of the group’s leader, John Weaver? Well, now we know why he took that particular action and presented that particular narrative.

That’s right: Schmidt, who lied a couple of weeks ago in claiming he had no idea what Weaver was doing, actually has known since at least March of last year. From the story at Mediaite:

Former Republican strategist and Lincoln Project co-founder Steve Schmidt reportedly knew about John Weaver’s sexual harassment accusations since March.

The NeverTrump political organization has been under enormous pressure for weeks amid multiple reports that their leadership has known about Weaver’s impropriety for months. Weaver has been accused of asking numerous younger men for sexual favors in exchange for professional advancement, and he has admitted to his “inappropriate” communications while saying he believed they were consensual at the time.

Schmidt stepped down from the organization on Friday over the Weaver scandal but denied having any knowledge of his colleague’s misconduct. However, The 19th claims that Schmidt and co-founder Reed Galen were among the members of the group’s leadership who’ve known about the Weaver allegations for almost a year.

Some of the individuals came forward with new details on Monday after they were released from their nondisclosure agreements. Several said Sarah Lenti, a managing partner with the group who was previously its executive director, knew about the allegations against Weaver as early as May 2020. Lenti confirmed that some of the group’s co-founders knew about the allegations as early as March 2020. Schmidt and Galen were among those who knew, multiple sources said.

[End]

Here’s the deal: If Schmidt knew as early as last March, they all knew as early as last March. Of course, the truth is that they all knew long before that, as Weaver’s sexual pathologies have been an open secret in the DC Swamp for 20 years now. So long as Weaver was able to keep his secret life secret and help his fellow grifter hacks make money, they were all perfectly willing to look the other way. Once that secret got out, though, it’s been every man – and woman – for himself. That’s just how the Swamp works.

The initial explanation given by Schmidt and the other creeps who made up the Lincoln Project, claiming they had only just found out the truth about Weaver in January, was your classic Big Lie. They all assumed that the corrupt news media, which had after all fawned all over them while they were working to defeat Donald Trump, would just keep on covering for them and parrot the Big Lie on their behalf.

Funny thing, though: Once January 20 came and went and Trump had been safely exiled in favor of our national sock puppet, the media no longer had any real use for Schmidt and his fellow grifters. Suddenly, a handful of actual journalists were digging for the truth, and it’s all slowly begun to trickle out over the past couple of weeks. Schmidt and all the others are now pretty much helpless, at the mercy of former staffers who have been released from their confidentiality agreements and journalists looking to make names for themselves.

Such a shame, huh?

Ducklo Bullying Shows White House Callous Attitude Towards Women

This is how you act when you believe you’re bullet proof. – Biden Deputy Press Secretary T.J. Ducklo became the subject of a bullying scandal on Friday when it was revealed he he had threatened a Politico reporter, Tara Palmeri, when she questioned him about an affair he had been conducting with a reporter for Axios.  It seems that the White House press corps is just a swirling soap opera of sexual shenanigans.

You didn’t have to worry about these things during the Trump administration, since everyone hated one another. But in a Democrat administration, they’re all trying to get each other into bed. And Ducklo thinks he can get away with this kind of behavior because his bosses will have his back.

Sadly, he’s pretty much right, given that his immediate boss, Jen Psaki circled back to him with just a one-week suspension.

From the story at Vanity Fair:

AWhite House official tried to quash a story about his relationship with a reporter by issuing threats and using derogatory language to another reporter pursuing it, according to two sources familiar with the incident. In a sympathetic profile Monday, People revealed that White House Deputy Press Secretary TJ Ducklo is dating Axios political reporter Alexi McCammond, who covered the Joe Biden campaign. But behind the scenes, Ducklo had previously lashed out at Politico reporter Tara Palmeri, who was reporting the story, exhibiting behavior that led to tense meetings between the Washington news outlet’s editors and senior White House officials.

After Vanity Fair published this account, the White House announced that Ducklo would be suspended for one week.

The confrontation began on Inauguration Day, January 20, after Palmeri, a coauthor of Politico’s Playbook, contacted McCammond for comment while one of her male colleagues left a message for Ducklo, according to the sources. Ducklo subsequently called a Playbook editor to object to the story, but was told to call the Playbook reporters with his concerns. But instead of calling the male reporter who initially contacted him, Ducklo tried to intimidate Palmeri by phone in an effort to kill the story. “I will destroy you,” Ducklo told her, according to the sources, adding that he would ruin her reputation if she published it.

During the off-the-record call, Ducklo made derogatory and misogynistic comments, accusing Palmeri of only reporting on his relationship—which, due to the ethics questions that factor into the relationship between a journalist and White House official, falls under the purview of her reporting beat—because she was “jealous” that an unidentified man in the past had “wanted to fuck” McCammond “and not you.” Ducklo also accused Palmeri of being “jealous” of his relationship with McCammond. (Palmeri had no prior relationship or communication with McCammond before calling her to report on the Playbook item, which was a story that she was assigned and had not independently pursued.)

[End]

So, the guy gets a one-week suspension without pay from the White House for the act of bullying and threatening a female reporter, an infraction for which he’d be walked out of the building permanently by security in the real world. But hey, these are 21st century leftists who don’t really give a damn about women’s rights, as evidenced on their policies that discriminate against actual women in favor of men who “identify” as girls.

For more background on Mr. Ducklo, check out this story from the Washington Free Beacon:

Here’s an excerpt from the story:

Ducklo’s misogynistic outburst is even more problematic considering his history of employment. His role as Biden’s deputy press secretary is not the first time Ducklo has flacked for someone accused of sexual assault.

For example, Ducklo was the senior communications director for NBC News between 2018 and 2019, when the network was struggling to contain the fallout from the numerous sexual assault allegations leveled against disgraced daytime host Matt Lauer. Journalist Ronan Farrow has accused senior NBC News executives of turning a blind eye to Lauer’s predatory behavior and of actively thwarting his efforts to report on disgraced Democratic donor Harvey Weinstein’s history of misconduct.

Ducklo may or may not have interacted with Weinstein when he did communications for the Motion Picture Association of America from 2011 to 2014. He definitely hung out with the group’s chairman, former senator Chris Dodd (D., Conn.), who is best known for making a “waitress sandwich” with the late Ted Kennedy, among other forms of disreputable behavior toward women.

Dodd, who served on Biden’s vice presidential selection committee in 2020, was exceedingly reluctant to weigh in on the (in some cases criminal) allegations against Weinstein, whom he called a “friend” who was “very helpful to me as a candidate for Congress and as a senator over the years.” Anita Dunn, one of Ducklo’s colleagues in the Biden White House, went so far as to provide Weinstein with “damage control advice” as the disgraced producer sought to avoid being convicted on rape charges.

Today’s Required Reading: The Reichstag Fire of the Democrats

Daniel Greenfield has a terrific piece up at FrontPageMag.com today titled “The Reichstag Fire of the Democrats.” It should be required reading for every American.

I’ve written at length over the last month of the effort by the Democrats in congress and China Joe Biden to turn Washington, DC into a literal police state, using the FBI-concocted fantasy of a “right-wing threat” of insurrection as justification. Greenfield writes about this reality in the context of Adolph Hitler’s use of the Reichstag fire to seize total power in 1933 and Joseph Stalin’s subsequent use of the assassination of his main opposition, Sergei Mironovich Kirov, a year later to achieve similar goals in Russia.

Here are some excerpts from the piece to whet your appetite:

The fascist theater of the military occupation is a pretext for a political occupation with Democrats inciting political purges in legislatures, both state and national, of any Republicans who criticised the stolen election and called for accountability on behalf of the voters. A purge is also underway of the military and law enforcement to root out “extremists” from the same forces that the Democrats have deployed to intimidate Americans and suppress political dissent.

Having pulled off a coup, the Democrats are seeking partisan political control over the military.

There are plenty of precedents for a political faction declaring a false state of emergency, occupying the center of government, and unleashing a campaign of political repression.

Those precedents don’t come from America. And they have no place in the United States.

The Democrats manufactured a permanent state of emergency and blamed its existence on their political opponents. That emergency has as little reality as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez who claimed that she was nearly murdered while being in an entirely different building. But the political terror and the purges being pushed in the name of that emergency are all too real.

History offers ominous precedents as the Democrats engage in a military occupation of D.C. and seek to purge political opponents by treating opposition as, in their own words, “seditious”.

Like their National Socialist and Communist ideological forebears, the Fascist Left has spent the past four years inventing new and undefined political crimes, beginning with “disinformation” and escalating to “incitement” and “sedition”, which lack any resemblance to normative legal usage.

Democrats keep claiming that the First Amendment doesn’t permit “shouting fire in a crowded theater”, even while they’re shouting, “Reichstag fire” in the crowded theater of government.

[End]

This is a 10-15 minute read that fully informs you on the Democrat strategy at play and its fascistic end game. Go read the full piece – you’ll be glad you did.

Monday News Roundup: BLM Labels Brady’s SB Win ‘Racist’ and Nevada Dems Empower Big Tech

I’m old enough to remember when the halftime show at the Super Bowl did not feature 300 grown-ass men prancing around with diapers on their faces.

Image result for super bowl halftime men with diapers on face

Let’s move on.

They could have featured this band instead:

May be an image of 4 people, people standing and text that says 'CIRCLEBACK AmN'

Ok, I’m really done now.

He thought it was a movie theater and “Herbie Rides Again” was playing. – Democrat activist Chris D. Jackson sent out this tweet yesterday, praising China Joe Biden for going to church instead of tweeting:

Image

Oh, how sweet, how “presidential,” right?

Well, the problem here is that Democrat activist Chris D. Jackson issued this tweet on November 15 of last year:

Image

Oh. Just as in the Obama administration, everything the Biden administration and its supporters say is basically a lie.

Question: When is the very act of winning a Super Bowl “racist”?  – Answer: When you’re Tom Brady and it’s Black History Month. At least, according to hundreds of BLM twitter nitwits, who took to the social media platform to air their protests of pasty-white Tom Brady securing his 7th Super Bowl victory.

From a story at SummitNews:

Innumerable people took to social media to complain that NFL star Tom Brady winning the Super Bowl during Black History Month was “racist.”

No, this is not the Onion.

Brady led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to victory over the Kansas City Chiefs to claim a personal 7th Super Bowl win, prompting outrage due to the perception that Brady once supported President Trump and the Chiefs’ quarter-back being black.

Many Black Lives Matter supporters scolded Brady for having the temerity to win, suggesting he was “racist” for doing so.

 

 

 

 

 

[End]

This compilation of enraged BLM tweeters goes on and on, and is far from comprehensive.

You just cannot make this stuff up, folks.

Today’s Short-Term Memory Update – The amazing success of Donald Trump’s “Operation Warp Speed” may not impress American leftists, for the simple fact that they are constitutionally incapable of admitting Trump was right about anything. But the undeniable, historic success of that effort certainly does impress left-wingers in the rest of the world.

You don’t have to believe me: Take French President Emmanuel Macron’s word for it:

From a story at JustTheNews.com:

When a French president offers public praise to the United States, it’s bound to turn heads.

Emmanuel Macron, who several times publicly squabbled with former President Donald Trump over the course of Trump’s presidency, openly expressed admiration of the Trump administration’s Herculean efforts to develop, test, manufacture and distribute a coronavirus vaccine on a national and eventually global scale.

“The Americans did this very well,” Macron told media in January. He confessed at that time that he was “very admiring” of the Trump administration’s “extremely innovative model” of vaccine production.

That “innovative model” has led to an explosion in vaccine distribution. Pfizer — the manufacturer of one of two vaccines approved for use in the United States — has already distributed 65 million doses of their vaccine worldwide, and expects to be able to distribute up to two billion by the end of the year. Moderna, whose vaccine was also approved for use in the U.S., hopes to have a billion doses by the end of the year.

Vaccines from both companies have already been administered over 35,000,000 times in the U.S., according to CDC data. By contrast, the European Union — with a 35% larger population — had as of Friday reported roughly 12,750,000 doses administered, according to data compiled by the EU.

Macron himself last month admitted that the European Union was less equipped than Washington to mobilize such a logistical effort. The European Commission, he admitted, had been called upon “to do something that isn’t within its competence,” in contrast to the relative proficiency of the U.S. government.

[End]

Oh. But instead of rewarding President Trump for this incredible success story, you are supposed to believe that American voters went out in record numbers to replace him with a brain-addled sock puppet who has been wrong about every damn thing for the last 50 years.

Sure you did. You betcha.

Hey, what could possibly go wrong? – Nevada Democrats are preparing to sign the death warrant of the American Republic with a bill that will allow Big Tech firms to set up their own “autonomous zones” in locations throughout the state. I kid you not: the freaking Governor himself – in utterly worthless communist Steve Sisolak – admits the bill would allow companies to form separate local governments in the state that would have the same taxing and regulating authorities as county governments.

From a story at Rebel News:

Nevada Democrats are working on legislation that will provide tech companies the ability to form their own autonomous governments to operate within the state.

Described as “Innovation Zones” by Democrat Gov. Steve Sisolak in an announcement last week, the governor said that the purpose of the proposed legislation was to boost the state’s economy, which has been hard hit by the coronavirus pandemic. The state relies heavily on tourism and the hospitality industry.

If passed, the legislation will allow tech companies to form separate local governments in Nevada that carry the same authority as counties, including the ability to impose taxes, form school districts, and even courts in addition to government services like policing.

“According to a draft of the proposed legislation, obtained by the Review-Journal but not yet introduced in the Legislature, Innovation Zones would allow tech companies like Blockchains, LLC to effectively form separate local governments in Nevada, governments that would carry the same authority as a county, including the ability to impose taxes, form school districts and justice courts and provide government services, to name a few duties,” The Las Vegas Review Journal reported.

“Sisolak pitched the concept in his State of the State address as his plan to bring in new companies that are at the forefront of ‘groundbreaking technologies,’ all without the use of tax abatements or other publicly funded incentive packages that had previously helped Nevada bring companies like Tesla to the state.”

Sisolak mentioned Blockchains, LLC by name and stated that the company had committed to developing a “smart city” adjacent to Reno that would run solely on blockchain technology.

According to the Associated Press, the Governor’s Office of Economic Development will oversee applications for the zones, which are set to be limited to companies in specific business sectors including blockchain, autonomous technology, the Internet of Things, robotics, artificial intelligence, wireless, biometrics, and renewable resource technology.

[End]

So, it isn’t enough that Big Tech has been allowed to set itself up as the de facto moderator of speech in our country: Now Democrats want to set these fascists up as literal government entities with authority to levy taxes and restrict other rights of American citizens.

If this bill is passed and upheld by the courts, it is literally the end of the American Republic. This isn’t the camel’s nose under the tent; this is the camel’s rear end defecating in your yard.

A pox on all these Democrats’ houses. Every one of them.

Sunday News Roundup: France Violates Its Own Climate Accords as Gas Prices and Gun Sales Rocket Skyward

Oh. You don’t saaaaaayyyyy… – I’ve pointed out in several pieces the fact that the United States, the only nation on earth that was not a formal participant in the Paris Climate Accords thanks to the foresight of Donald Trump, was also the only industrialized nation on earth that has not only met its unenforceable “targets” under that sham wealth redistribution scheme, but exceeded them.

The U.S. has surpassed its emissions targets all the way through 2025, in fact, mainly thanks to the fact that clean natural gas has displaced huge amounts of coal in power generation. At the same time, European nations that had forced their economies heavily into wind and solar with massive government programs have been falling far short.

One of those countries is Germany. Another, of course, France – ironically where the agreement was consummated years ago – whose leaders were also among the most petulant and snarky in their condemnation of America’s non-participation. France has fallen so far and obviously short that a court in Paris actually found the country guilty this week of this imaginary “crime.”

No, I’m not making this stuff up:

Here’s an excerpt from the CBS News piece:

Paris — Four environmental groups are crying victory after France was found guilty of failing to meet climate change goals it committed to in a historic accord signed in and named after its own capital city. The Administrative Tribunal in Paris ruled Wednesday that France had fallen short of its promise to reduce greenhouse gases under commitments made in the 2015 Paris Agreement, and was “responsible for ecological damage.”

While the court declared the government guilty of inaction, it rejected a claim for damages by the four NGOs that brought the suit, ordering the government to pay just one symbolic euro to them instead. The tribunal also said it would decide within two months whether to recommend any measures for the government to resolve its failure to meet its own commitments.

In January, the court called the proceedings the “first major climate trial in France.”

[End]

Thus, just as with the Paris Accords themselves, this climate “trial” ends in an empty gesture involving a lot of hot air, pontificating and toothless threats of future action.

Things are not good in America right now, but it could be worse: We could be France.

Today’s Short-Term Memory Reminder. – Speaking of climate-related scams, remember that your clean, pretty and very expensive electric vehicle derives most of its power from the burning of fossil fuels:

That isn’t Gina McCarthy, as @LawyerForLaws incorrectly claims, but it is fun to watch her squirm nonetheless.

Do you get the feeling that it’s costing you more to fill up your gas tank at the local station? Yes? – Well, that’s because it is. The price of a gallon of regular unleaded gas, which plummeted to decades-long lows under Donald Trump, has now risen by 37 cents per gallon since Election Day as traders drive up the price for crude oil in anticipation of the Biden/Harris socialist policy onslaught:

Thanks, Democrats! You voted for this!

The Babylon Bee just keeps getting better. – Here, America’s best satirists (eat your heart out, Saturday Night Live) perfectly capture the public pronouncements of the little menace to society, Anthony Fauci:

Here’s an excerpt from this hilarious story:

WASHINGTON, DC—In a development no one saw coming, Dr. Anthony Fauci has again changed his recommendation about what to do with masks by consulting his tested and proven “Wheel of SCIENCE.”

“Now I know it confuses people when the science changes so quickly, as if we are just making all this up as we go along,” explained Dr. Fauci from his bunker full of neckties. “That’s why I developed this handy ‘Wheel of SCIENCE’ for us to spin every morning, so people can really see that this isn’t just me saying whatever pops into my head!”

“Now– let’s give this puppy a spin!” he exclaimed as he gave the wheel a mighty turn.

“What will it be today, gang?” asked a giddy Dr. Fauci. “‘Masks Cause Bladder Cancer?’ ‘Eating Dirt Prevents Halitosis?’ hmmm…”

The dial slowed, clicking just past “Cover Your Kids With Grocery Bags” and finally came to rest on: “Attach A Live Octopus Directly To Your Face.”

“There it is, folks!  Science has proven that the best way to prevent COVID transmission is to affix a live octopus directly over your mouth, nose, and probably eyes. I’ve been keeping this little guy here for this very moment,” said Dr. Fauci, reaching into an aquarium and plastering the surprised sea creature’s tentacles directly onto his face.

[End]

Go read the rest. It gets even funnier.

If this surprises you, you haven’t been paying close enough attention. – In a bit of positive news, Americans continue to exercise their gun rights in record numbers. Barack Obama used to be the all-time record-holder for stimulating sales of guns and ammo in America, until the COVID-19 pandemic and the government’s brutish response to it, along with last summer’s endless BLM/Antifa rioting, came along, . But China Joe Biden is threatening to surpass all previous records as his barrage of onerous executive orders and radical leftism continue to sow a rising level of fear among the public.

January, in fact, was the busiest month on record for gun and  background checks in the U.S., a clear indicator that the month likely also saw record sales of guns and bullets.

From a story at JustTheNews.com:

Gun background checks in the United States shattered monthly records in January, blowing past the four million mark for the first time in U.S. history.

Americans underwent nearly 4,318,000 checks for firearm purchases last month, handily defeating December’s then-record of nearly 3,940,000 checks and recording over four million checks in one month for the first time in the 23-year history of the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.

The four-million-plus checks performed in January total nearly 11% of the roughly 39,700,000 checks performed in the entirety of 2020. January of last year, for comparison, saw just over 2,700,000 background checks nationwide.

Last year’s record checks came amid sustained national unrest driven by often-violent protests led by Black Lives Matter in numerous cities nationwide, as well as record-high unemployment and economic devastation stemming from COVID-19 lockdowns and closures.

[End]

The establishment elite have over the past year destroyed Americans’ right to free speech, our right of free assembly, our right to go to church and our right against unreasonable search and seizure. But they have not yet been able to destroy our right to keep and bear arms, or to go out and buy a bunch more of them at the local gun shop. When they make their inevitable effort in the next few years to send out soldiers to confiscate everyone’s guns – and believe me, that’s coming, and sooner than you expect – they’ll find that the only way to do that will be to pry them out of the cold, dead hands of millions of ordinary citizens.

Good luck with that.

Supreme Court Agrees to ‘Consider’ Hearing Three Election Challenge Cases

No one should be too excited about this bit of DC Swamp Kabuki Theater.

Your case is basically moot now? Ok, let’s get it on the docket for consideration! – Now that the DC Swamp’s sock puppet, China Joe Biden, has been installed safely in the Oval Office and surrounded by a National Guard security perimeter, the Washington Examiner reports that the Supreme Court has finally agreed to consider hearing some election challenge cases that would have been ripe two months ago.

Now? Not so much.

Regardless, the Court has agreed to “consider” whether or not to hear the Pennsylvania election case, Sidney Powell’s Michigan election case, and Lin Wood’s Georgia election case.

From the story at the Washington Examiner:

The Supreme Court on Friday listed several high-profile election lawsuits for consideration at its mid-February conference.

The cases include challenges to the 2020 election from Trump-aligned lawyers Lin Wood and Sidney Powell, as well as Republican Rep. Mike Kelly’s Pennsylvania lawsuit. Nearly every lawsuit takes issue with the expanded use of mail-in ballots by many states.

The decision came after the court declined to fast-track all election-related litigation in early January.

In nearly every plea for expedition, lawyers backing former President Donald Trump told the court that if the cases were not heard before President Biden’s inauguration, their success would be unlikely.

But after the court pushed them off, many lawyers said that the challenges were still important and could have long-term implications for election fairness. Trump lawyer John Eastman told the Washington Examiner that even with Trump out of office, it was important to settle the issues raised by expanded mail-in voting.

“Our legal issue,” he said, referring to the way in which Pennsylvania conducted the 2020 election, “remains important and in need of the court’s review.”

Similarly, Kelly’s lawyer Greg Teufel, told the Washington Examiner after the court refused to hear his case before the inauguration that the 10-year congressman and major Trump ally had no intention of dropping the suit.

[End]

But don’t get your hopes up: It is highly likely the Court will find some technicality or procedural grounds for refusing to actually agree to hear any of these cases, since it became clear during November and December that it can dig up a rationale for refusing to hear any case it doesn’t want to hear, regardless of the merits involved. There is no question, for example, that the Pennsylvania case clearly involved a blatant violation of the constitution by the Pennsylvania legislature and courts, and deserved to be fast tracked, but the Court dummied up a reason not to hear it in a timely manner nonetheless.

Even if the Court should deign to hear one of the cases just to try to make it look as if it is diligently trying to do its job – which it plainly has not been doing – that case or cases will not be heard until next October.

Bottom line, this is all just another bit of DC Swamp Kabuki Theater, a farce acted out for the benefit of the corrupt news media, which will in turn heap praise on “system” for “working.”

But the system is rigged, and we all know it. As George Carlin used to famously tell us, it’s a big club and we aren’t in it.

Saturday News Roundup: Lou Dobbs Cancelled, but the DC Police State Lives On

If Fox News was already dead to you, it is probably even deader to you this morning. – Lou Dobbs, the pugnacious anchor and loyal Trump guy on Fox Business, saw his show cancelled yesterday in the wake of being named as a defendant in a $2.7 billion lawsuit against the network by Smartmatic.

Dobbs has been a fixture on Fox Business for a decade, and has remained a rare bright spot on the network as most of its other programming has veered to the left, causing a collapse in the “news” operation’s ratings in recent months.

From a story at NewsMax:

Fox News has canceled ”Lou Dobbs Tonight,” the program hosted by one of the media’s most steadfast supporters of Donald Trump and the former president’s claims of voter fraud, the Los Angeles Times reported Friday. 

Dobbs’ program, which has been airing twice nightly at 5 and 7 p.m. ET on the Fox Business Network, will be replaced next week with ”Fox Business Tonight,” with rotating substitute hosts Jackie DeAngelis and David Asman, who filled in for Dobbs on Friday. This, according to a Fox rep who confirmed the news to the Times.

Dobbs, 75, remains under contract at Fox News, the newspaper said, but his future on the conservative news network is murky.

The cancellation comes a day after a large voting software company, Smartmatic, filed a $2.7 billion defamation suit against Fox News and three of its hosts — Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo and Jeanine Pirro. The company said the hosts helped to spread lies about Smartmatic’s role in the presidential election, to the detriment of its reputation and its business.

Fox News has been in turmoil as long-time viewers have abandoned the channel since Election Day. Former President Donald Trump has attributed his election loss to Joe Biden to unfair coverage by Fox News as well as massive voter fraud.

Dobbs was signed to Fox News by its former chief executive Roger Ailes in 2011. As the Times noted, he has long been the company’s most outspoken supporter of Trump’s economic and immigration policies. In the weeks after the election, the paper said, he went on the air to express anger that the Republican Party did not do more to act on claims that the election was rigged in favor of Biden.

The firing of Dobbs will add weight to critics’ claims the network has gone soft backing conservative views.

[End]

Interesting that Fox is taking no similar action related to weekend host Jeanine Pirro or Dobbs’s fellow Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo, both of whom are also named in the SmartMatic suit. Bartiromo, in constrast to Dobbs, has even been allowed to audition to become the new host for the 7:00 p.m. ET time slot to replace Martha MacCallum, who was recently moved into a daytime slot.

Is Dobbs a sacrificial lamb at the altar of the Swamp? Sure looks that way. Expect Fox’s ratings to continue to tank.

When is a “Conspiracy” not a “Theory”? Answer: When the corrupt news media details it in a long white-washing piece designed to inoculate all the participants. – Time Magazine details a giant anti-Trump conspiracy  in a long piece published yesterday.

I posted an analysis of it yesterday evening, which you can read at this link. Enjoy.

To all you cheap Democrats out there freaking out about this video on Twitter, this is what is commonly known as a “generous tip.” Pay attention.

Today’s Required Reading. – I know I’ve been handing out some long reading assignments here recently, but readers would do well to go over to Spiked-Online to read an excellent new piece by Ben Pile, a blogger at ClimateResistance.com. Pile’s piece details the reasons why the “green” climate alarmist community is, in contrast to most everyone else, actually very happy with draconian gubernatorial restrictions issued under the rubric of COVID-19, and in fact would love to see them continue into perpetuity.

No really, it’s true. Here’s an excerpt from Pile’s excellent piece:

The question at the centre of this bizarre, anti-human dystopianism is, ‘Will Covid help us save the planet?’. That was asked by last Sunday’s edition of the BBC’s Big Questionsspiked’s Fraser Myers, outnumbered by George Monbiot, Extinction Rebellion activists and neo-Malthusian population-obsessives, appeared on the show. He was interrupted every time he tried to counter the greens’ celebration of locking people in their homes. Such is the BBC’s absorption into the green and lockdown orthodoxies that it apparently could not find, in a population of 65million people, more than one dissenting voice.

For Monbiot, the logic of lockdown was simple enough. ‘What we’ve discovered with the pandemic is that when people are called upon to act, they’ll take far more extreme action than environmentalists have ever called for’, he said. In Monbiot’s view, all that was required to elicit the obedience of the population was for the government to make it ‘abundantly clear that we have to do this for the good of all’. But this is not true.

If it were true, there would not have been the need to pass emergency legislation, to force businesses to close, and to abolish gatherings, including protests, all under threat of fines of up to £10,000. Which is far in excess of what most people could afford without serious consequences, including the loss of their home. Moreover, there are countless reports of local authorities and the police failing to understand the regulations they were enforcing and exceeding their authority. People have stayed at home because there was nowhere to go to, and nothing to do, and because they do not want to break the law, and because they have been terrified of the virus. A July survey of British people’s estimation of the deaths caused by Covid found that (excluding ‘don’t know’) they overestimated the number of fatalities by up to 10 times. A third overestimated by 10 to 100 times, and 15 per cent overestimated by over 100 times.

Go read the rest of it – it’s about a 10-minute read altogether. You’ll be glad you invested the time.

Today’s Short-Term Memory Reminder. – Just a reminder that today, a full month after the Capitol Riot, the “temporary,” barbed-wire-topped perimeter fence remains around the Capitol Building – and is likely to be reinforced into a permanent wall – and Joe Biden still has an army of 7,000 National Guard personnel deployed in the police state that our nation’s capital has become.

And guess what else? It’s costing you half a billion dollars. From a story at the DailyWire:

The presence of National Guard troops in Washington, D.C., is racking up a hefty bill of $500 million as threats reportedly require them to remain into early spring.

The estimate exceeds even the $480 million Bloomberg projected Thursday, according to an official who confirmed the number to The Hill, and does not include the costs incurred by the city.

Approximately 26,000 guardsmen from all 50 states, as well as three U.S. territories and the District of Columbia, descended on the capital in the wake of the unrest on Jan. 6, locking down the sensitive areas around the Capitol building, National Mall, and large portions of downtown with police barricades and razor-topped fences.

Troop numbers have decreased to around 7,000 since the inauguration of President Joe Biden, with about 5,000 planning to remain until at least mid-March, in accordance with a Department of Homeland Security bulletin that warns threats remain even after the inauguration.

Information suggests that some ideologically-motivated violent extremists with objections to the exercise of governmental authority and the presidential transition, as well as other perceived grievances fueled by false narratives, could continue to mobilize to incite or commit violence,” the bulletin said.

[End]

Note that last part: DHS has the ability to continue with this pretense of a “threat” from nebulous “ideologically-motivated violent extremists” into perpetuity, and has zero obligation under the law to prove the pretense is real to the public. If all that is required to say is that “information suggests” such threats exist, then DHS can accurately say that any threat it wished to imagine “exists” somewhere in the United States today.

This threat, “suggested by information” according to Biden’s DHS, is the one that’s being used to turn Washington DC into a police state via the abuse of the men and women of the National Guard.

That’s a national disgrace. A very expensive one.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: AOC’s Riot Fable Continues to Fall Apart

Every day is a new day for China Joe Biden. – President Biden just can’t help himself. Yesterday he repeated a lie that he made up a decade ago about getting “shot at” while on a trip in the Middle East. That lie has been debunked more times than Jussie Smollett’s lies, but the President likely just forgot about that fact. So, he just blurted it out one more time:

This is who we have in the White House: A man who can’t remember things from one day to the next. If you think it looks and sounds as if every day is a new day for Joe Biden, that’s because it is.

The woman is lying. If you see her lips moving, she’s lying. That’s what she does. – In what should come as a surprise to literally no one on the face of the earth who has synapses firing in their cranial cavities, more factual problems have arisen about the fables AOC has been telling about her experience during the Capitol Riot of January 6.

It turns out that she wasn’t even in the Capitol Building at the time of the riot, but that the timeline she has constructed around her fables simply is not possible.

From the story at RedState.com:

But when the knock came on her door, shortly after 1:01, no one had even breached the Capitol building yet. There was some pushing past an outer perimeter barrier at 12:53 still some distance from the Capitol building but the breach of the building didn’t come until about an hour after the officer knocked on AOC’s door. What she’s saying now is with the hindsight of what later occurred, but there was no way of knowing that people were breaching a building at that point because it hadn’t yet happened.

“As the Capitol complex was stormed and people were being killed, none of us knew in the moment what areas were compromised.” But that “moment” hadn’t actually happened yet at 1:01 p.m. No one knew any of that. The building hadn’t been “compromised” or “stormed” as of yet.

So suggesting that it had, to provide buttress for her reaction, is again manipulative.

There’s also been no public evidence that people were ever trying to storm the Cannon building, much less at 1:01 p.m. We’ve asked the Capitol Police for their records to confirm that but haven’t gotten a response yet.

[End]

RedState should not expect to get an answer from the Capitol Police for the simple fact that AOC is lying, and the Capitol Police won’t want to cause her any more humiliation than she has already brought onto herself.

She’s a liar – it’s what she does. Lying to gullible and easily-manipulated Democrat voters is how she got elected, and it is how she plans to continue to rise through the power structure in Washington, DC. As I have said many times before, if you believe in reincarnation, then when you look into AOC’s dead, beady eyes you should see the reincarnation of Adolph Hitler. At this point in her life, she is Hitler circa 1933 or so, and she intends to keep rising until she becomes Hitler circa 1939.

So of course she is lying about the riot, because the riot, in her mind, simply represents opportunity to manipulate the public. After all, that’s how Adolph would have looked at it, too.

Speaking of opportunities… – If congressional Republicans had spines, they would be looking at yesterday’s action by congressional Democrats to strip Marjorie Taylor Green of her committee assignments as a golden opportunity. In an action without precedent in modern times, the Democrats – with 11 RINOs supporting them – voted to remove a duly-elected representative from Georgia from all House committees.

From the story at the Daily Caller:

The House of Representatives voted Thursday to strip Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of her committee assignments.

In a 230-199 vote, the House voted to remove Greene from the House Education and Budget committees.

Greene has continued to claim that Trump won the Nov. 3 presidential election and has been linked to a number of conspiracy theories, including QAnon related conspiracies. Greene gave a speech on the House floor Thursday after a Wednesday night meeting with House Republicans where she apologized for promoting conspiracy theories and reportedly was met with applause by many in the room.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Wednesday that he would not remove Greene from her committee assignments.

“Past comments from and endorsed by Marjorie Taylor Greene on school shootings, political violence, and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories do not represent the values or beliefs of the House Republican Conference. I condemn those comments unequivocally. I condemned them in the past. I continue to condemn them today. This House condemned QAnon last Congress and continues to do so today,” McCarthy said in a statement released Wednesday afternoon.

[End]

Coming as it does a mere month after it was revealed that Democrat Eric Swalwell had an affair with a honeypot spy from China for a couple of years and the decision by Nancy Pelosi to leave Swalwell as a member of the House Homeland Security Committee, the decision to remove Greene from committees is a truly breathtaking act of hyper-partisanship. Yes, Greene’s a conspiracy theorist who has in the past indicated she doesn’t believe the government’s story on 9/11 and all manner of other things, but the truth is her behavior has been no more repugnant than that of AOC or Rashida Tlaib or Ilhan Omar or Swalwell.

So, if congressional Republicans possessed a spine, they would be looking at yesterday’s vote from a long-term perspective, and making plans to take exactly the same action against AOC, Tlaib, Omar and Swalwell when they take back the majority in the House in the 2022 mid-term elections. That is, after all, the next logical step to be taken here.

But you can bet your bottom dollar that neither Majority Leader McCarthy nor any other GOP house member is entertaining any such thoughts, because to do so would require the possession of intestinal fortitude. It would also require them to finally, at long last, recognize that they are engaged in a very real war on Capitol Hill, and have been for the last 170 years, and the Democrats are the only side truly engaged in the fight.

Thus, when congress convenes in 2023 with a small GOP majority in the House, you won’t see McCarthy allowing any move to remove any Democrat from any committee assignments, under the rationale that if he and his Republican members just play nice with the Democrats, they will play nice, too. It’s a rationale that has consistently proved to be an exercise in rank futility since about 1850, but the Republicans never seem to learn.

That is all.

Still Waiting for That $2,000 Check? Biden’s Gonna Send You Masks Instead.

Mad because you haven’t gotten your $2,000 COVID check yet? – No worries, the Biden Administration is going to send you a bunch of 25 cent COVID masks instead.

Isn’t that great?

Even better, the Biden administration is going to mandate that you keep wearing your handy 25 cent masks into perpetuity, even after you’ve had one of the array of probably-not-very-effective “vaccines”!

Yes, friends, this is where we are headed, and if you had been reading DBDailyUpdate for the past 10 months, you will know that that is where we have always been headed with this thing. Your DC Swamp UniParty elites don’t want you free and happy, and never really have. They want you masked up, cowering in fear in your homes, subjecting yourselves to whatever medication they wish to administer to you, all in the name of keeping you “safe.”

As for the $2,000 checks they promised you last fall and early winter, those have already been chopped down to $1,400 in China Joe’s preferred $1.9 trillion fake “stimulus” bill, and make up less than 1/3rd of the total price tag of that bill. And guess what? Even though the Democrats have majorities in both houses of congress and could easily pass this atrocity of a bill into law today, the latest word from Chuck Schumer and San Fran Nan is that they think they might – might – be able to get the bill done sometime in March. Which of course means that the real plan is to cut that $1,400 check amount down even further before anything gets done, if it ever really does.

See, the DC Swamp UniParty elites also don’t want you having too much money in your pocket, because money tends to increase mobility, and mobility tends to increase a person’s desire for freedom. Which gets us back to why they prefer you to be cowering in fear in your homes.

A population that is cowering in fear in its homes is much easier to control than a population that is free to move around and has a little money in its pocket. A population that is free to move around also tends to be free to get together to share ideas that the UniParty elites do not approve of. You know, ideas like questioning why it is that if the Biden people claim to want to “follow the science,” then why aren’t our kids back in school and why aren’t the teachers we pay to teach them back in school with them?

It’s a great question: The “scientists” at the Centers for Disease Control have advised everyone in the Biden administration that your kids should all be back in school and the teachers should be there with them, yet Biden himself again yesterday refused to commit to getting the kids and teachers back into the schools.

Or hey, if we’re following the “science,” why does the head “scientist,” Anthony Fauci, say on one day that we all ought to be wearing two masks instead of one, and then the very next day admit that there really isn’t any “science” or “data” that indicates that’s a good idea? Or dang, if we’re following the “science,” then why haven’t our governors ended their bizarre, ineffective and brutal tactic of keeping all the restaurants and bars closed, given that states like California and New York and Illinois and New Jersey whose Democrat governors have religiously clung to that failed tactic have a far worse record related to the virus than do states like Florida and South Dakota and other states whose Republican governors have rejected it?

The answers to these questions and so many more should be obvious to everyone by now: This is all a political exercise that has nothing to do with anything resembling “science.” This is all about control, and you are the ones being controlled. This is all about preparing the population of the United States to meekly accept the “Great Reset,” in which COVID fear becomes the rationale for implementing brutish fascism/socialism all over the world, something the Biden administration is already well down the road to getting done as we all cower in fear in our homes, many of us wearing our masks (and perhaps two) as we cook lunch or take a whiz.

So, you wanted a $2,000 check? Tough. The Biden people are going to send you masks, which have become the great symbol of your own imprisonment, instead.

This is no different than late 18th Century France. The masses don’t have enough money and want the government to provide more?

Tough.

Let them wear masks.

That is all.

Tuesday News Roundup: Nobel Madness, Cuomo Hubris, and Psaki Gets the Questions in Advance

You really could never make this stuff up. – Black Lives Matter got themselves a nomination for a Nobel “Peace” Prize on Monday. To celebrate, the group staged yet another riot in Rochester, New York:

Honestly, the globalists are just taunting us at this point.

But wait, there’s more!

Guess who else got themselves a Nobel nomination? Oh, you will never guess this one… – No, I’m not kidding here: Stacey Abrams, who helped steal the Georgia election for Joe Biden, got herself a Nobel Peace Prize nomination:

Hey, at least we know Ms. Abrams won’t be doing any riots – that, after all, would require some physical exertion.

Understand that this just proves that the global elites who are in the process of executing the Great Reset would rather award a “peace” prize to BLM for literally destroying a dozen or so major American cities, and Abrams a “peace” prize for ensuring all the dead in Georgia get registered to vote than to give Donald Trump a “peace” prize for literally bringing real, actual peace to the Middle East.

It’s a mad, mad, mad, mad world, folks.

Wait, she gets the questions in advance and she’s still this awful? – If this story surprises you, you must have slept through the presidential campaign. The very, very, very leftist Daily Beast reports that White House Communications Team staffers have been pre-interviewing compliant members of the fake White House press corps to get their questions in advance of press briefings. No doubt, they realize just how truly, incredibly terrible Press Secretary Jen Psaki is at her job, and needs all the help she can get.

I swear I don’t make this stuff up:

Here’s an excerpt from the Daily Beast story:

If you’re a reporter with a tough question for the White House press secretary, Joe Biden’s staff wouldn’t mind knowing about it in advance.

According to three sources with knowledge of the matter, as well as written communications reviewed by The Daily Beast, the new president’s communications staff have already on occasion probed reporters to see what questions they plan on asking new White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki when called upon during briefings.

The requests prompted concerns among the White House press corps, whose members, like many reporters, are sensitive to the perception that they are coordinating with political communications staffers.

One reporter raised the issue during an informal White House Correspondents Association Zoom call last Friday. According to multiple sources, leaders at the meeting advised print reporters to push back against requests by the White House press team to learn of questions in advance, or simply to not respond to the Biden team’s inquiries.

“While it’s a relief to see briefings return, particularly with a commitment to factual information, the press can’t really do its job in the briefing room if the White House is picking and choosing the questions they want,” one White House correspondent said. “That’s not really a free press at all.”

“It pissed off enough reporters for people to flag it for the [WHCA] for them to deal with it,” another knowledgeable source said.

[End]

So, knowing that almost everyone in the room is fully on their side and had completely discarded their role as protectors of the public interest during the campaign to get their Sock Puppet elected, Psaki’s team felt zero compunction at all about implementing this pre-interview program. But some of these corrupt toadies still like to pretend to be actual journalists from time to time and are now “expressing concerns” about the process.

I must say, though, that after the last 50 years of the press corps completely refusing to make any effort whatsoever to do its job, complaints like those aired in this story ring awfully hollow. If you don’t want to be treated as a smelly, mangy lapdog, then you shouldn’t spend your days acting like a smelly, mangy lapdog.

When asked about the controversy, Ms. Psaki no doubt responded by saying “ummmmm…uhhhh….ummmmm….I’m gonna have to circle back with you on that.”

This really happened in New York yesterday:

I kid you not: The Governor held a press conference in Albany in which he urged New York residents to get off the roads due to the snow storm taking place, declaring a state of emergency in the process, and then got in his car and drove to New York City on the freshly-cleared roads.

From the story at the New York Post:

Do as he says, not as he does.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo declared a state of emergency over the blizzard, urging people not to travel — then hopped in his car during the throes of the snowstorm Monday and drove himself down to the Big Apple from Albany.

“I want New Yorkers to hear me loud and clear — stay home and off the roads,” the governor said in a statement about his emergency declaration.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio also issued a state of emergency for the Big Apple — which banned non-essential travel.

But that didn’t stop the governor from hitting the road. He explained that he didn’t want to be sitting home while telling essential workers, including those clearing the streets, they needed to be on the job.

The governor got behind the wheel in the thick of the snowstorm for the roughly two-and-a-half-hour drive from Albany, where he usually holds press briefings, to helm a news conference at his Manhattan office early Monday afternoon.

“I’m telling you, I’m on the road right now — it is horrendous,” Cuomo admitted during a morning call-in to WCBS radio before reaching Manhattan.

[End]

Per the story in the New York Post, Cuomo even admitted doing what he was doing while on a radio interview with WCBS radio in Manhattan as he was in transit to his office there. The unbridled hubris at play here is almost too astonishing to imagine.

But then again, why wouldn’t Cuomo be just eaten up with hubris? After all, he knows he has the absolute, uninterruptible protection of the news media, which has fawned all over him for the last year even as his policy decisions have undeniably resulted in the needless deaths of thousands of elderly residents in his state’s nursing homes. When confronted with that reality at a press conference late last week, the Governor simply replied, “Who cares where they died? They died.”

Any Republican who offered such a belligerently uncaring answer to that question would be literally hounded from office by his or her state’s news media, and rightly so. But because it was Cuomo, the story was a blip on the screen and the media moved on to more pressing matters, like what some right-wing member of congress posted on Twitter two years ago.

The simple fact is that Cuomo, thanks to the undying protection of the media, is untouchable and he knows it. Thus, he blows off questions about how many elderly New Yorkers he has personally killed and pulls pranks like the one he pulled yesterday, and most likely goes to bed laughing.

Which, come to think of it, is exactly how rulers in France lived a couple hundred years ago, back before they all got their heads cut off.

Monday News Roundup: The Whole World Runs on Democrat Scams

Fun Energy Fact for Today. – Most of the electricity you use to charge your electric vehicle – the overwhelming preponderance of it, in fact – is generated by burning fossil fuels. Like, 80% of it, and most of the remaining 20% is generated by nuclear power plants.

That’s the inconvenient truth about EVs that EV makers and proponents don’t like to talk about. More than 9 times out of ten, those cute charging stations taking up the best parking spaces at your local Whole Foods get their power from the local power grid, and more than 9 times out of 10, your local power grid gets its electricity from sources that are not called wind or solar. In fact, I’m aware of one Whole Foods that actually has a generator that burns diesel fuel to produce electricity for its charging stations, a setup that is actually quite common.

Watch this clip to the end and you will see your typical EV proponent bragging about the cars and how “clean energy” is used to charge them, and see her humiliated on camera when she is forced to admit that the electricity used at her local charging station is generated by … wait for it … burning coal:

You seriously could never make these people up. Don’t even try.

Speaking of scams, let’s do a Global Church of Climate Change Scam update. – Just in case you are among the many who continue to buy into those computer model-based climate change projections of 8-10 degree temperature rise by the end of this century if we don’t all follow Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and her Green New Deal off the economic cliff, here’s a reminder of what the climate change alarmists were telling world leaders 17 years ago in 2004:

Here’s an excerpt from that UK Guardian story from February, 2004:

Climate change over the next 20 years could result in a global catastrophe costing millions of lives in wars and natural disasters..
A secret report, suppressed by US defence chiefs and obtained by The Observer, warns that major European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas as Britain is plunged into a ‘Siberian’ climate by 2020. Nuclear conflict, mega-droughts, famine and widespread rioting will erupt across the world.

The document predicts that abrupt climate change could bring the planet to the edge of anarchy as countries develop a nuclear threat to defend and secure dwindling food, water and energy supplies. The threat to global stability vastly eclipses that of terrorism, say the few experts privy to its contents.

‘Disruption and conflict will be endemic features of life,’ concludes the Pentagon analysis. ‘Once again, warfare would define human life.’

The findings will prove humiliating to the Bush administration, which has repeatedly denied that climate change even exists. Experts said that they will also make unsettling reading for a President who has insisted national defence is a priority.

Climate change ‘should be elevated beyond a scientific debate to a US national security concern’, say the authors, Peter Schwartz, CIA consultant and former head of planning at Royal Dutch/Shell Group, and Doug Randall of the California-based Global Business Network.

An imminent scenario of catastrophic climate change is ‘plausible and would challenge United States national security in ways that should be considered immediately’, they conclude. As early as next year widespread flooding by a rise in sea levels will create major upheaval for millions.

[End]

Now, food is not “dwindling” – it is in fact far more abundant today than it was in 2004. Water is not “dwindling” – it remains abundant all over the globe as human ingenuity advances and allows us to source drinking water from brackish and salt water supplies. Energy is not “dwindling” – it is in fact so vastly more abundant today than in 2004 that the real-dollar cost of all forms of energy has been dramatically reduced. And no, Britain has not turned into an island version of Siberia. The authors of this report were wrong – simply, plainly, factually wrong – in every respect.

Note that despite the fact that literally none of what this report projected 17 years ago has in fact come about, it has been used as the basis for all manner of policy decisions costing trillions upon trillions of dollars. Note also that your newly-installed sock puppet in the White House just did what the report recommended, elevating the matter “beyond a scientific debate” – which has never really taken place since alarmists know they cannot win a debate on the subject – and making it a “US national security concern” in one of his many executive orders issued thus far. Thus elevated, that order will now be used as justification for thousands more policy decisions that will cost us many trillions more dollars in the years to come.

So, despite being wrong about everything, the Global Church of Climate Change continues to advance for the simple reason that each and every “solution” advanced by its proponents fits neatly into the globalist/socialist political agenda.

It’s been a scam from Day 1, the most magnificent and massive scam ever perpetrated by human beings.

Your weekly reminder why Florida Governor Ron DeSantis should be the GOP’s 2024 presidential nominee:

He just runs circles around Texas Gov. Gregg Abbott. The Swampy GOP will try to force Nikki Haley on you in 2024, because Nikki Haley is a card-carrying member of the Big Swamp Club. Don’t let them do that to you. With authentic conservatives like Gov. DeSantis and South Dakota Gov. Christi Noem available, there is no reason at all to let the Swamp saddle you with another globalist loser.

Today’s Biden Administration “Unity” Moment:

Just so you know they never for one second meant it. They hate you and would much rather you were dead.

Union leaders betrayed their members yet again in 2020. – It is a sad fact of the trade union movement in America that union members have quite often been completely misled and betrayed by their leadership. Corrupt union leaders climb into bed with corrupt politicians – almost always Democrats – larding their campaigns up with money forcibly collected from members in return for false promises that are pretty much never fulfilled.

This cycle of deception and corruption has been the main feature of union life for more than a century now, and the 2020 elections proved that it is in no danger of stopping despite the inroads Donald Trump made with blue-collar union workers in 2016. Today, the Daily Caller has a story detailing the fact that members of the Teamsters and other unions who had already entered into contracts to work in high-paying jobs on the Keystone XL Pipeline are angry that Joe Biden kept his campaign promise to kill that project.

Here’s an excerpt from that story:

Several trade unions that endorsed President Joe Biden during the campaign, condemned his executive order revoking the federal government’s permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline.

President Joe Biden revoked the March 2019 federal permit given to TC Energy Corporation, the company constructing the pipeline, in a Jan. 20 executive order on “protecting public health and the environment.” The pipeline has been criticized by organizations like the Natural Resources Defense Council for being harmful to the environment but applauded by groups like the American Petroleum Institute (API) and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for creating union jobs.

“The Keystone XL Pipeline has been through more than 10 years of extensive environmental reviews, and today’s announcement is a slap in the face to the thousands of union workers who are already a part of this safe and sustainable project,” API President and CEO Mike Sommers said in a statement following Biden’s signing of the executive order.

TC Energy signed the Keystone XL Pipeline’s project labor agreement (PLA) with four labor unions in August, promising the creation of 42,000 “family-sustaining jobs” in the U.S. and $2 billion in total earnings for the workers.

The labor unions that signed the PLA were the Laborers International Union of North America (LiUNA), the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, the International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE) and the United Association of Union Plumbers and Pipefitters (UA). All four labor unions endorsed Biden’s presidential campaign.

The National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation (NRTW) announced Monday it would offer free legal aid to union workers who lost their job due to the order and whose union endorsed Biden.

“Workers should not be forced to financially support union bosses who use workers’ money to back candidates willing to destroy their jobs with the stroke of a pen,” Mark Mix, president of the NRTW, said in a statement.

[End]

Mr, Mix is certainly right, but that is how pretty much every trade union in America has worked for the last century and more. It’s all a big club, and while the union leaders are members in that club, the union rank and file members who finance the whole scam certainly are not. Somehow, the workers have never been able to figure that out, even though the scam is completely transparent to everyone else.

Union members voted overwhelmingly for China Joe, and China Joe will make them pay. Four years from now, they will all no doubt repeat this painful cycle all over again.

Mindless.

That is all.

Sunday News Roundup: The ‘Great Reset” is Coming, and John Kerry Says You Voted For It

Ok, who knew that China Joe Potato Head Biden’s entire COVID-19 plan  was to make sure that radical Islamic terrorists being held at Gitmo got the vaccine before 98% of American citizens? Raise your hand. Anyone? – Yes, that was the news on Friday, anyway, which honestly seemed to me to be so par for the course for any Democrat administration that I chose not to even mention it.

But others did mention it – many, many others. So many, in fact, that the Pentagon announced late Saturday that it was “reconsidering” this latest bone-headed scheme against the American people before it got off the ground:

From a story that you know the leftist slugs at The Hill hated to report:

The Pentagon announced Saturday that it is pausing a plan to offer coronavirus vaccines to prisoners at Guantanamo Bay after facing a wave of pushback.

“No Guantanamo detainees have been vaccinated. We’re pausing the plan to move forward, as we review force protection protocols. We remain committed to our obligations to keep our troops safe,” tweeted Pentagon spokesman John Kirby.

The reversal comes just days after the Defense Department said it would offer coronavirus vaccines to detainees at Guantánamo Bay, the notorious prison in Cuba, with the rollout possibly coming as soon as next week. The plan was to offer the 40 detainees at the base the first of two doses of the available vaccines “on a voluntary basis.”

It is unknown how many coronavirus cases have occurred on the military base, but the pandemic has presented an obstacle to holding military legal proceedings, including in the case against Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the man who is accused of being one of the masterminds behind the attacks on U.S. soil on Sept. 11, 2001.

The plan had been met with fierce pushback, particularly by Republican lawmakers, before it was paused, especially in light of vaccine shortages across the country.

“It is inexcusable and un-American that President Biden is choosing to prioritize vaccinations for convicted terrorists in Gitmo over vulnerable American seniors or veterans,” Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) said prior to Kirby’s Saturday announcement.

[End]

Thanks to Cong. Stefanik for putting it so bluntly and accurately. “un-American” is this administration’s middle name.

ummmmm…uhhhhh….ummmmm…I’m gonna have to circle back to you on that.:

The Great Reset is upon us, and you little people must all be miserable so that your Elite Ruling Class can achieve fairness. – That was the essence of the message delivered by French President Emmanuel Macron in Davos, Switzerland this week. Speaking to the annual gathering of the Illuminat, errr, World Economic Forum, Mr. Macron blamed capitalism for all the unfairness in the world, and said that the way to fight COVID-19 is for governments to make sure everyone is equally miserable.

No, really, that’s exactly what he said if you really read his exact words. Here’s an excerpt from a story at Breitbart:

At the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) virtual Davos Agenda summit on Tuesday, French President Emmanuel Macron declared that in the wake of the Chinese coronavirus modern capitalism “can no longer work”.

Appearing before a question and answer session conducted with ‘Great Reset’ architect and founder-chairman of the WEF, Klaus Schwab, Mr Macron said that while capitalism has historically driven down poverty globally, he claimed that it came with the cost of furthering inequality.

“We will get out of this pandemic only with an economy that thinks more about fighting inequalities,” Macron said.

“The capitalist model together with this open economy can no longer work in this environment,” he added.

The French president pronounced that capitalism has resulted in a “deep moral and economic crisis” in which “hundreds and thousands of people throughout the world had this feeling of losing their usefulness.”

[End]

Do you see it? Macron’s thesis here is that the evil “capitalism” that has worked to cut the global poverty rate by 80% over the last 30 years has left “hundreds of thousands of people” around the world with a “feeling of losing their usefulness.”

So, Macron’s “solution” – and the preferred solution for everyone in attendance in Davos, trust me – is for governments to use COVID-19 as their vehicle to eliminate “capitalism” and institute brutish fascism/socialism so that the world’s other 8 billion people can come to feel equally useless. That really is exactly what he is saying there.

And hey, he’s already getting his wish in Democrat-run states and cities around the United States today, where despicable Democrat governors and mayors have used COVID-19 as an excuse to implement rule by brutal edict, putting millions out of work and destroying half of all small businesses in the country. That’s all happened in just the last 10 months. Think of what the ruling elites can achieve towards the advancement of world socialism if they can get the WHO and Anthony Fauci to keep this scam going for another couple of years.

It didn’t get a lot of notice at the time, but in early December John Kerry told us all what was coming during a panel discussion hosted by the World Economic Forum. Macron’s words, along with what has happened since make Kerry look like the prophet of doom he truly is.

Here’s an excerpt from a December 3 story at The Hill:

Internationally, the Great Reset has already been backed by influential leaders, activists, academics and institutions. In addition to the World Economic Forum and United Nations, the Great Reset movement counts among its the International Monetary Fund, heads of state, Greenpeace and CEOs and presidents of large corporations and financial institutions such as Microsoft and MasterCard.

But in America, most policymakers – including President-elect Joe Biden – have been relatively quiet about the Great Reset, leaving many to speculate what a Biden administration would do to support or oppose this radical plan.

There has been some evidence suggesting that Biden and some of his biggest allies back the Great Reset and would attempt to impose it on the United States. But Biden and his team have never explicitly stated that America would be involved — that is, until now.

At a panel discussion about the Great Reset hosted by the World Economic Forum in mid-November, former Secretary of State John Kerry – Biden’s would-be special presidential envoy for climate – firmly declared that the Biden administration will support the Great Reset and that the Great Reset “will happen with greater speed and with greater intensity than a lot of people might imagine.”

When asked by panel host Borge Brende whether the World Economic Forum and other Great Reset supporters are “expecting too much too soon from the new president, or is he going to deliver first day on this [sic] topics?,” Kerry responded, “The answer to your question is, no, you’re not expecting too much.”

“And yes, it [the Great Reset] will happen,” Kerry continued. “And I think it will happen with greater speed and with greater intensity than a lot of people might imagine. In effect, the citizens of the United States have just done a Great Reset. We’ve done a Great Reset. And it was a record level of voting.” 

Kerry later argued that the Great Reset is necessary to slow the “climate crisis” and that “I know Joe Biden believes … it’s not enough just to rejoin Paris [the Paris Climate Accords] for the United States. It’s not enough for us to just do the minimum of what Paris requires.”

[End]

Understand what he’s saying there in the passages I put in bold: In “electing” China Joe to the presidency, Americans just voted for the Great Reset. Biden, or rather his handlers, are fully bought into the strategy to bring about the Great Reset in America, and that is what we see the administration doing to us each and every day.

Every action Biden has taken so far at the direction of his elder-abusing handlers has been designed to eliminate your rights and to impair and shrink the U.S. economy in order to gradually ramp up the misery suffered by the population as a whole. The invasion that is about to begin again at our southern border in the coming days is also a part of this strategy – to stress and strain our country’s resources to the breaking point so that the resulting economic misery can be blamed on “capitalism” and used by the Democrats in p0wer to affect even more misery and ensure it impacts each and every one of us in the name of “fairness.”

That’s what the Great Reset is, and it is coming to you – in the words of John Kerry – “with greater speed and with greater intensity than a lot of people might imagine.” Best of all, according to Kerry, you voted for it.

Imagine that.

That is all.

Saturday News Roundup: Pelosi, Biden and Newsom Show How Grift and Fraud Makes the Democrat World go Round

Man, nobody could’ve seen this one coming. – The big news out of California this week is that the utterly incompetent jackasses in the Newsom administration paid out no less than $31 billion in fraudulent unemployment payments since last April. I say “no less than” because some reports peg the number at a cool $50 billion. And that’s just in one state.

Here’s an excerpt from a story at the Washington Examiner:

An arm of the California government admitted that up to $31 billion in unemployment funds may have been sent to fraudsters.

“Of the $114 billion in unemployment paid by California since March, approximately 10% has been confirmed as fraudulent. An additional 17% of the paid claims have been identified as potentially fraudulent,” Secretary for the California Labor and Workforce Development Agency Julie Su said in a California Employment Development Department conference call.

Earlier this month, the state estimated that $10 billion in unemployment benefits was fraudulently sent, with some of the funds going to organized crime organizations in China and Russia. Initial estimations reported that around $4 billion was sent out fraudulently.

“There is no sugar-coating the reality: California did not have sufficient security measures in place to prevent this level of fraud,” Su said.

[End]

Oh. You don’t say. Yeah, I guess when you’re sending unemployment checks to crime organizations in China and Russia, your security measures could be said to be lacking.

Holy crap.

Hunter’s far from the only despicable grifter in the Biden family. – China Joe Potato Head Biden’s brother Frank is also deep into the slimy influence game the family has thrived on for the last half-century. Yesterday it was revealed that he has recently been the star of his law firm’s solicitations for powerful new clients in need of access to the White House, because of course that’s what anyone named Biden would have been doing:

That little revelation led to a story at Politico titled …

‘For Christ’s sake, watch yourself’: Biden warns family over business dealings

Here’s an excerpt from that delightful expose’:

In the midst of his campaign for president, Joe Biden took his younger brother, Frank, aside to issue a warning.

“For Christ’s sake, watch yourself,” Biden said of his brother’s potential business dealings, according to a person with knowledge of the conversation. “Don’t get sucked into something that would, first of all, hurt you.”

Biden, whose tone was both “jocular and serious,” according to the person, seemed to know then what is becoming plainly obvious now: His family’s business ties threatened to undermine an administration whose messaging is centered on restoring integrity in the White House.

Relatives’ money-making ventures, most prominently his son Hunter’s overseas dealings, have long dogged Biden. But it’s taking on a new dimension now that he’s in the White House.

Only a week into his presidency, Biden already has had to answer for matters related to his family. A law firm ad promoting Frank Biden’s relationship with the president caused a stir when it ran on Inauguration Day. A federal investigation into Biden’s son, Hunter, has invited scrutiny of just how strict a firewall he’ll keep between the White House and the Justice Department. And another of the president’s brothers, James, has previously come under fire for his business dealings.

[End]

Of course, the rest of that Politico story is your standard corrupt news media puff piece, a classic inoculation story designed to insulate China Joe from any further media scrutiny by giving other media outlets the ability claim it’s all “old news” and “already reported” now. Because that’s what our corrupt, Nazi-style news media does for corrupt Democrat politicians.

Speaking of corrupt Democrat politicians… – How about that Nancy Pelosi, huh? Man, if anyone in Washington knows best about how to get stinking, filthy rich off of a position of high power in Washington, DC, it’s San Fran Nan and her husband, San Fran Paul. These people have turned the practice of insider trading into an art form over the past 30 years, and aren’t about to stop now that China Joe’s occupying the White House.

See, insider trading is highly illegal for you and all the other little people in America, and every once in a while the DOJ even nabs one of the big people in America for doing it, as they did with Martha Stewart several years back, just to set an example. But the DOJ will never ever prosecute a member of congress for blatantly violating this set of laws for the simple fact that congress controls the DOJ’s budget. Oh, they might perform a perfunctory investigation of some congressional Republican, like they did with North Carolina Senator Richard Burr for about 5 minutes last year, but the chance of any member of congress, especially powerful members like San Fran Nan, ever actually being brought up on charges are roughly the same as John Durham ever handing down an actual indictment of one of the ObamaGate thugs. It’s just not gonna happen.

So it is that we get this story yesterday from JustTheNews.com:

Here’s an excerpt from that story:

Ethics watchdogs say the timing of large purchases of Tesla stock by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband Paul raises ethics concerns due to an appearance of insider trading.

Paul Pelosi reportedly purchased up to $1 million in stock from electric car giant Tesla last month. President Joe Biden, meanwhile, announced this week that his administration intends to take the entire federal fleet of automobiles electric.

The move by Pelosi was “corrupt and unacceptable,” TakeBack.org Executive Director John Pudner claimed in an interview with the Washington Times this week.

“Even if the actual charges are not provable beyond a reasonable doubt or trigger SEC action, the timing of trades with potential insider information always looks bad,” a former federal prosecutor told the publication.

A spokesman for the speaker said that “her husband, not the speaker, made the Tesla bets and the speaker’s political relationships were irrelevant,” the Times reported.

[End]

No big deal. The Speaker knew Biden’s order was coming, told San Fran Paul about it and San Fran Paul went out and made the trades so that San Fran Nan would have “plausible deniability,” that great get out of jail free card in Washington, DC.

And you’re supposed to just take Pelosi’s word for it like every fawning Democrat toady in the Nazi-style news media is going to do. After all, if it weren’t for the preservation of influence grifts like the Biden family’s or insider trading grifts like the Pelosi family has used for decades, why, no one in Washington would ever be able to become fabulously wealthy while pretending to engage in public service. And that wouldn’t be fair, would it?

I kid you not: That really is how these people think. It is in fact how they live every day of their despicable lives.

That is all.

Biden DOJ Crosses the Line Into Full-on Totalitarianism

America has officially crossed the line into totalitarianism. – That’s the only conclusion to draw from yesterday’s arrest by the Department of Justice of a Twitter guy named [checks notes] Douglas Mackey, whose Twitter handle was [checks notes] Ricky Vaughn, for the heinous crime of … wait for it … oh, you gotta wait for this one … POSTING MEMES THE GOVERNMENT DOESN’T APPROVE OF.

No, I am not kidding, and here’s a link to the DOJ Press Release to prove it.

Check out this passage from the release describing Mackey’s “crime”:

Mackey allegedly tweeted an image that featured an African American woman standing in front of an “African Americans for [Hillary]” sign. The image included the following text: “Avoid the Line. Vote from Home. Text ‘[Hillary]’ to 59925[.] Vote for [Hillary] and be a part of history.” The fine print at the bottom of the image stated: “Must be 18 or older to vote. One vote per person. Must be a legal citizen of the United States. Voting by text not available in Guam, Puerto Rico, Alaska or Hawaii. Paid for by [Hillary] for President 2016.”  The tweet included the typed hashtags “#Go [Hillary]” and another slogan frequently used by the Candidate.

“Protecting every American citizen’s right to cast a legitimate vote is a key to the success of our republic,” said William F. Sweeney Jr., Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s New York Field Office. “What Mackey allegedly did to interfere with this process – by soliciting voters to cast their ballots via text – amounted to nothing short of vote theft. It is illegal behavior and contributes to the erosion of the public’s trust in our electoral processes. He may have been a powerful social media influencer at the time, but a quick Internet search of his name today will reveal an entirely different story.”

In other words, Mackey is being charged with posting a damn meme that preyed on Hillary Clinton voters in 2016 who were too dimwitted to understand that it was a lame attempt at humor. DOJ accuses him of engaging in vote theft without a shred of evidence that a single person fell for the meme. This is the same DOJ that can’t be bothered to investigate a single instance of the massive, real vote theft that took place in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia and Arizona in this election.

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton herself and her campaign spent $11 million in that 2016 election campaign to pay a British spy to compile a dossier on Donald Trump consisting mainly of false claims that came from Russian spies in order to unfairly influence the election. These spies defrauded the FBI, defrauded members of congress, defrauded the courts and defrauded the American people, all the while being paid by the Clinton campaign and the Democrat National Committee.

All of this is a simple matter of unarguable public record, and the DOJ has seen fit to do nothing to bring her or anyone else involved in that transparent attempt to steal the 2016 election to justice.

While all that was taking place, it is also a matter of unarguable public record that senior officials within the FBI and DOJ writ large mounted an illegal spying and entrapment effort against various members of the 2016 Trump campaign, spending millions of federal government funds in the process, and the DOJ has made ZERO effort to bring any of those Obama/Clinton supporters to justice.

But some clod who posted a meme on Twitter? Yeah, that guy gets indicted strictly because his meme attacked Clinton and her supporters. Make no mistake about this: Had that exact same meme targeted Republican/Trump voters – and there were thousands during the 2016 campaign that did – Mr. Mackey would never have come up on the DOJ’s radar.

Remember John Durham? Where is he now? Where is his “report” that will never come? Where are all the indictments former AG William Barr told us repeatedly could be coming soon? Just as I and many others told you would happen throughout 2020, Durham has been effectively disappeared from the public space, his grand jury disbanded if it ever existed at all, and is no doubt just playing out the string until he is fired and replaced with some Biden flunky.

But this Douglas Mackey guy – who admittedly appears to be a repugnant human being – posted a meme the Pantsuit Princess didn’t like, so the full weight of the DOJ is brought down upon him.

Washington, DC is a police state, with 11,000 National Guard personnel still controlling everyone’s movements around the city and a non-scalable fence topped by barbed wire still surrounding the Capitol Building, and the DOJ is arresting people for Twitter memes. All of this to protect an elderly dementia patient who stole an election and rules by executive edict, supported by a Nazi-style media propaganda establishment and big tech oligarchs who are systematically shutting down any voices who dare to dissent.

This is not America anymore. We have lost freedom of speech. We have lost freedom of religion. We have lost freedom of assembly. We have lost the right to petition our government directly. We have lost the freedom from unreasonable search and seizure. The Deep State/DC Swamp/Nazi Media/Big Tech alliance have stolen all of that from us in a virtual blink of an eye.

This is what a totalitarian state looks like. This is what we have become.
