Today’s Global Church of Climate Change Reminder: It’s a religious cult, not a scientific enterprise:
How much more proof do you need? Seriously.
Note: If you’re waiting for an order from your Sock Puppet-in-Chief to tell you it’s ok to celebrate Independence Day, you clearly don’t understand what “independence” means. – That of course would apply to pretty much all Democrats these days, as they no doubt sat hypnotized before their TV sets and watched China Joe Biden read a text written by his handlers and tell them it will all be ok by the 4th of July and they’ll be able to hold “small gatherings” then if we all just behave like good little liberal automatons until then:
BIDEN: "If we do our part… by July 4, there's a good chance you, your families, and friends will be able to get together in your backyard or in your neighborhood and have a cookout or a barbecue and celebrate Independence Day… Small groups will be able to get together" pic.twitter.com/j6PQwbN4qg

…and hey, if you just walk six feet away from the nearest member of your “small gathering,” he will – maybe – let you pull down the three masks you’ll be wearing by then to take a sip of your beer. Yay!
Well, guess what? We’re already doing all of those things and more here in Texas, and in Florida, and South Dakota, and North Dakota, and Montana, and Wyoming, and Kansas, and Iowa, and Oklahoma and in other Red states I’m not thinking of right now. As usual, the Sock Puppet was talking to his pals in the Blue states, because they’re the only people this great Divider-in-Chief ever speaks to in any real way. Hell, it’s all he is allowed to do by his abusive handlers.
But what about that insurrection in Austin? – Of course, here in Texas, the abusive Democrat mayors and county judges are attempting to rebel against Gov. Greg Abbott’s elimination of mask mandates, and City of Austin and Travis County officials imposed a mask mandate of their own the day after the Governor’s statewide order expired. But the Governor and Attorney General Ken Paxton are serious about eliminating such orders even at the local level; so serious, in fact, that Paxton filed a lawsuit in state court to force the leftist thugs to give up:

From the story at the Washington Times:
AUSTIN, Texas — Acting on his threat, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton sued Austin and Travis County officials on Thursday over their decision to continue requiring mask-wearing in public.
Paxton had threatened a suit after the local officials decided Tuesday to exempt the city and county from Gov. Greg Abbott’s lifting of the state’s mask mandate Wednesday.
In announcing their opt-out Tuesday from Abbott’s order, Austin Mayor Steve Adler and Travis County Judge Andy Brown said they were merely enforcing the COVID-19 prevention rules made by Dr. Mark Escott, medical director and health authority for the city and county, as they contend state law provided.
“Judge Brown and I will fight to defend and enforce our local health officials’ rules for as long as possible using all the power and tools available to us,” Adler said in a statement. “We promised to be guided by the doctors, science and data as concerns the pandemic and we do everything we can to keep that promise.”
Adler added: “We are not aware of any Texas court that has allowed state leadership to overrule the health protection rules of a local health authority.”
Fair warning: the judge in this case, Lora Livingston, is a Democrat, so you can be sure she will ignore the law and the constitution and rule the wrong way, because that’s what Democrat judges do, even in Texas. But Paxton and Abbott will prevail on appeal.
Are six abused women and thousands of dead nursing home residents enough for New York assembly Democrats? – It’s still far to early to tell, but at least the Speaker of the state’s assembly took the step of formally approving an impeachment inquiry to take place against thug Governor Andrew Cuomo, a fellow Democrat on Thursday,
Andrew Como moves one step closer toward impeachment as New York Assembly Speaker authorizes inquiry. https://t.co/6vLddpE8Sj

From the story at JustTheNews.com:
ew York State Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie issued a statement on Thursday saying that he is authorizing the initiation of an impeachment investigation into Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
“After meeting with the Assembly Majority Conference today, I am authorizing the Assembly Judiciary Committee to begin an impeachment investigation, led by Chair Charles D. Lavine, to examine allegations of misconduct against Governor Cuomo,” Heastie, a Democrat, said in the statement.
“The reports of accusations concerning the governor are serious. The committee will have the authority to interview witnesses, subpoena documents and evaluate evidence, as is allowed by the New York State Constitution. I have the utmost faith that Assembly member Lavine and the members of the committee will conduct an expeditious, full and thorough investigation,” Heastie said.
Now, understand that this “inquiry” will be led by fellow corrupt Democrats, who will no doubt do everything they can to rig it in a way that will lead to an outcome that avoids an actual impeachment. At least, that’s what will happen assuming that the facts and number of female accusers remain where they are today. You can expect this “inquiry” to conclude that some action short of actual impeachment – such as a meaningless vote to censure the Governor – is really all a serial killer-and-abuser-of-women deserves in a case like this.
You should also understand that this “inquiry” will focus in almost exclusively on the sexual harassment allegations against the Governor, and not on the deadly impacts of his COVID policies and his desperate efforts to cover them up. If you’re a woman, you should understand that the reason why the inquiry will have that focus is because Democrat politicians really don’t consider those allegations to be truly serious, and thus not meriting a severe punishment like impeachment.
The simple fact is that Democrat politicians look at sexual harassment in the very same way they look at illegal aliens – as political tools to be used to their advantage, nothing more. So, when completely unsubstantiated and frankly unbelievable sexual harassment charge are lodged against any Republican, like Bret Kavanaugh, you invariably see Democrat politicians and their agents in the corrupt news media rush to scream about their seriousness and spend weeks railing about them. But when totally believable charges complete with photographs are lodged against a Democrat, well, the women lodging them aren’t really taken all that seriously, are they?
To see the absolute truth in this, all you have to do is remember the progression of the whole #MeToo movement. That started out as a ball of fire, with every Democrat politician and Democrat agent in the media pounding on how crucially important it was day after day after day for weeks on end. But then, as it became clear that the main guilty the movement identified was this parade of Democrats, mainly leftist entertainment and media figures like Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer, Mark Halperin, Kevin Spacey, Andy Dick and Charlie Rose, and Democrat politicians like Al Franken, the whole thing just went poof! into the ether. Suddenly, this whole sexual harassment thing wasn’t really all that big a deal after all in the collective mind of the Democrat/media establishment.
The problem for Democrats in New York is that they will now have to focus on the sexual harassment angle in order to justify letting Cuomo off with a slap on the wrist. If they focus on thousands of needlessly-dead citizens and Cuomo’s efforts to cover them all up, well, that slap on the wrist just won’t be enough.
These are all Democrats, remember, including the media. This is what they do for each other.
Don’t shoot me – I’m just the messenger here.
That is all.
