Oh, sure. Why not? – Just when you thought MSNBC was incapable of sinking any lower, they fooled you again. Late Friday the fake news cable channel introduced its new “legal analyst”: Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page.
Conservative Twitter is outraged by this hiring, but why? Shouldn’t we all have expected it? After all, MSNBC already employs John Brennan and other Obamagate coup cabal honchos. I’m just amazed they haven’t hired Peter Strzok yet. I mean, if your “news” operation is nothing more than a propaganda outlet for the Deep State, why not go all in?
My only question is whether the homely Ms. Page’s ghoulish face will actually be shown on TV, or will she send her “analyses” in via text, with a CC: to lover boy Strzok?
Are you listening, Al Sharpton? – These are the truest words ever spoken:
Rev. Bill Owens, president of the Coalition of African American Pastors, says racial tensions have not improved in America because the true civil rights movement has been “hijacked” by politicians who are using black Americans as “a pathway to power.” https://t.co/neQwh3j37o

Phil Murphy doubles down on destroying New Jersey. – In the midst of the spectacles of mass demonstrations in which no one is staying at home or washing their hands or doing any social distancing, Democrat governors are continuing to extend their politically-motivated lockdowns.
Phil Murphy in New Jersey announced on Friday that he is going to keep the Garden State locked down through July 5 for no valid reason whatsoever.
UPDATE: I’ve extended the public health emergency in New Jersey for an additional 30 days. We will continue our path forward, while remaining vigilant and prepared to act should there be a new outbreak of #COVID19.

Meanwhile, not even Dr. Fauci is keeping up this pretense anymore. – In a CNN interview yesterday, the little economy destroyer said schools should reopen in the Fall, although still with mitigations:
“In some situations there will be no problem for children to go back to school,” Fauci said during the interview. “In others, you may need to do some modifications. You know, modifications could be breaking up the class so you don’t have a crowded classroom, maybe half in the morning, half in the afternoon, having children doing alternate schedules.”
Are you listening, Gov. Murphy? Probably not.
But there is massive WINNING in Michigan. – 77 year-old barber Karl Manke won a big victory before the Michigan state Supreme Court. In a 7-0 decision, the Court poured out Michigan’s abusive Governor Gretchen Whitmer and the activist appeals court judges who have abused Manke for the past few weeks, allowing Manke to retain his barber’s license and keep his shop open while the case against him is fully considered by the Court of Appeals. A 3-judge panel of the Appeals court had ordered Manke to close while the case was being heard.
Manke’s attorney, David Kallman, called it the “biggest, most lopsided victory of his career.” Life as an aspiring banana republic dictator is getting harder and harder for Frau Gretchen.
“De-fund the police! De-fund the police! De-f…wait, what? A new poll? Just 16% support? Are you sure? Ok, ummmmm…Never-mind! Never-mind! Just kiddin’! Just kiddin’!” – In Friday’s Evening Wrap, we told you about the sudden backing down within the Minneapolis City Council from its Thursday calls to “dismantle” and “de-fund” the city’s police department in the wake of the murder of George Floyd.
After a new poll found that that concept is supported by just 16% of those surveyed, the Council decided on Friday to pass a very limited new measure that eliminates the police use of choke holds and requires by-standing officers to intervene when they see a fellow officer using excessive force, as happened to Floyd. These are simply commonsense measures that most Americans already support.
You have to look way down to about the 20th paragraph to find it, but a New York Times report this morning quotes Minneapolis’s worthless, spineless Mayor Jacob Frey as also pulling back any support for de-funding his police department:
Mayor Jacob Frey has said he does not support calls to dismantle the department. On Friday, City Council members voted to accept a civil rights investigation by the Minnesota Department of Human Rights and to adopt updates to the Police Department’s use of force policy that include a ban on chokeholds. The topic of eliminating some of the department’s functions was not discussed.
Talk about burying the lede. But hey, it’s the New York Times – what did you expect?
Despite this latest show of poll-based cowardice by one city’s radical Democrat city council, however, no one should think that the Democrat Party as a whole is abandoning the idea of abolishing traditional police departments nationwide. That remains the obvious end-game.
They and their corrupt media toadies will now simply double-down on their efforts to brainwash the public to accept this society-destroying notion until the polling numbers become more politically viable. We have an election in 6 months, and any politician actively running on a suicidal notion that only has 16% public support will get killed at the polls. They’ll have to get that support number up into the 40% range before their politicians will risk actual votes on it.
“Uh, Mr. Mayor? We’re gonna need a new emergency response team.” – All 57 members of the City of Buffalo, New York’s emergency response team resigned en masse after two of their members were placed on suspension after an altercation with a fairly old radical leftist protester.
The radical jackass was pushed to the ground by the two officers when he accosted them as they were attempting to break up an ongoing riot on Thursday.
From a report at The Hill:
John Evans, president of the Buffalo Police Benevolent Association, announced the 57-member team’s resignation at a press conference Friday.
“Fifty-seven resigned in disgust because of the treatment of two of their members, who were simply executing orders,” Evans told a local NBC affiliate.
Here’s a video of the incident. You can judge for yourselves:

So, the question here becomes whether the officers used “excessive force” on the old jackass. They certainly did shove him to get him out of the way as they attempted to do their jobs. Are the Buffalo mayor and city council now going to tell their police officers that they must now do nothing as they are harassed and prevented from doing their jobs by radical clowns like this?
If so, they’re going to lose many more officers in the future. As far as I can tell, this guy got exactly what he deserved.
That is all.
