Empire State Building Lit Up In "Pfizer Blue"

 

A recent MSN post by way of 710 WOR-- or is it WOR 710?-- read:

Seems like COVID's everywhere again. But here's good news from Pfizer!

This season's updated COVID-19 shots are now available for ages 6 months and up, and they're designed to help protect against recent variants.

That is why today, at 8pm, the Empire State Building turned its iconic building blue to announce that the CDC recommends everyone 6 months of age and older get this season's updated COVID-19 shot. The blue light symbolizes our gratitude and appreciation for the updated vaccines and all those who made it possible.

COVID-19 isn't gone, and vaccination remains one of our best tools to help protect against the virus that causes the disease. Ask your doctor or pharmacist about this season's updated COVID-19 shots. Learn more and schedule at the CDC's website, vaccines.gov.

Sponsored by Pfizer.

You don’t say!

The post was titled, “The Empire State Building Shines Pfizer Blue for Updated COVID-19 Shots.”

I’m not sure how pharmaceutical companies get away with calling these experimental mRNA shots “vaccines,” at least insofar as they don’t prevent contraction or transmission of the disease…and even so need to be taken repeatedly. Be that as it may, recommending the shots for those 6-months-old and up is beyond the pale, and should be a crime. But what the hell, let’s all express our “gratitude and appreciation!”

I must confess I didn’t know there was such a color as “Pfizer Blue.” Call me a skeptic, but it seems a bit much to light up a skyscraper in honor of the vaccines. I wonder how much that cost…and who paid for it? Is that not a waste of energy? What of the carbon footprint?

Going forward will we light up, say, the Sears tower in Viagra Blue? The IDS tower in Pepto-Bismol pink?

 

Biden Speech To Flood Victims

 

Makeshift stage somewhere in America

President Biden at podium, giving speech

October 5, 2023

 

President Biden: “I feel for all of you after a flood like this. I know many of you have lost your homes and businesses. (In a barely audible rasping whisper): And it’s a damn shame. (Much louder again): And, you know, I can symp—um, empath, uhh, empathize with you because, one time, when I had a bad back, the plug popped out of my hot water bottle and my shirt and pants got really, really wet.

“But tragedies like that don’t define us. I was one of the last men standing defending the Alamo! Davy Crockpot, um Crockett, died right next to me, in fact. We may have lost the battle, but we didn’t get our dauber down. No, we cried out, ‘remember the Embers!’—I mean ‘remember the Alamo’…and Curly! And I was in Ford’s Theater the night Lincoln was shot. That was a bummer, but it gave us a great joke: ‘Other than that Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?’ So, the great man didn’t die in vain.

“What’s more, as many of you may know, I was front and center with Dr. King in the Selma March to Montgomery back in ’65. That was tough…but the tough get going! Right? And you all will get going again, just like I did. I promise you!

“It was tough times when the Brits controlled this country prior to our independence. My great, great, great grandaddy suggested that Thomas Jefferson write the Declaration of Independence. And look how it turned out!

“I remember the space shuttle catastrophe in 1786, I mean 1986 I think it was. I helped Reagan write the speech he gave about the Challenger disaster. You know the one……we waved good-bye to them as they ‘slipped the burly bonds of earth’ to ‘touch the face of, you know, the thing.’

“Anyway, the point I’m making is that we are rezil, uhh, resilient. When life throws lemons at us, we make lemonade-- (leans forward and whispers softly) even though I’d rather have ice cream.

“I was raised by Potawatomi. We were poor. We had nothing but a tepee and moccasins. But I went on to drive 18-wheelers and teach political theory at The University of Pennsylvania and rocket science at the Goddard Institute.

“I better stop talking now or I’ll get in trouble. So let me conclude by saying I know you are all wet now, but believe me, things will get better from here. Thank you!”

[Looks around, unsure of what to do or where to go…]

Senate Dress Code Repealed

 

Majority Leader Charles Schumer recently dropped the Senate dress code, in a nod to Democratic Sen. John Fetterman, who often shows up wearing shorts and a hoodie.

Subsequently, 46 Republicans wrote to Schumer, imploring him to reinstate the dress code, Susan Collins among them. Collins jokingly threatened to wear a bikini to the Senate chambers, since there is “no dress code anymore.” Yikes.

If Diane Feinstein shows up in a bikini, or Schumer or Fetterman appear wearing a Speedo, the Capitol might be subjected to an actual insurrection.

And we won’t even contemplate Mitch McConnell…

Irish Media Minister Supports Government Defining What Is True And What Speech Can Be Permitted Online

 

As recently reported by Sundance at theconservativetreehouse.com: “Discussing the implementation of the Digital Services Act (DSA), Ireland’s Media Minister defends the decision that a government appointed entity will ultimately decide what speech is permitted by citizens.” Sundance then opines, “This is the next phase in the control of opposition to the expansion of government controls.  We are all traveling at the front of one long continuum toward tyranny.” Sadly, he is correct.

Totalitarian governments such as China’s, North Korea’s, and Iran’s-- among many others—have long been the arbiters of truth and have gone to great lengths to control what can be said and where. Tragically and despicably, many formerly open and liberal governments of Western nations have begun doing much the same thing…with a twist. Each in turn claim they must take these autocratic, tyrannical, and anti-democratic measures…”to save our democracy.” This should immediately engender a response of “bullshit!” from every sane person. Unfortunately, due to the modern media’s fanatical unwillingness to speak truth to power when that power is left-leaning, combined with the apparently rapidly dwindling numbers of sane persons, those in these governments are getting away with this ridiculous and reprehensible ruse.

Skeptical of my skepticism? Believe Biden, Trudeau, et. al., are basically telling us the truth? Just look at what those in government have told us in recent years:

I never had sex with that woman, not one time!”

If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor!”

“Trump colluded with Russia! The Russians interfered in the 2016 presidential election to get Trump elected!”

” We are just asking for two weeks to flatten the curve! Social distancing and mask mandates work! So do the vaccines! And they are completely safe!”

“COVID-19 came from a bat and/or pangolin, not the Wuhan lab” that was researching and experimenting with precisely those types of viruses…at Fauci’s direction and with his funding!

“Hunter’s laptop bears all the hallmarks of a Russian misinformation operation!”

“Unlike the 2016 presidential election-- which was clearly stolen by the Russians-- the 2020 presidential election was the most accurate, fair-- literally beatific-- election in American history!”

“Progressive?” Contrast these notions…these lies…with statements from our founders. And then ask yourself who was more learned? Who possessed more integrity and character? Who was more courageous? Who spoke the truth?

*“I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground that ‘all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states or to the people.’ To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specially drawn around the powers of Congress, is to take possession of a boundless field of power, not longer susceptible of any definition.”—Thomas Jefferson, 1791

*“The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence.”—John Adams, 1787

*“Government is instituted to protect property of every sort; as well that which lies in the various rights of individuals, as that which the term particularly expresses. This being the end of government, that alone is a just government which impartially secures to every man whatever is his own.”—James Madison, 1792

*"Resistance to tyranny becomes the Christian and social duty of each individual. ... Continue steadfast and, with a proper sense of your dependence on God, nobly defend those rights which heaven gave, and no man ought to take from us."—John Hancock

*”Freedom is not a gift bestowed upon us by other men, but a right that belongs to us by the laws of God and nature.”—Benjamin Franklin

*“Without liberty, law loses its nature and its name, and becomes oppression. Without law, liberty also loses its nature and its name, and becomes licentiousness.” – James Wilson

*”Either you will control your government, or government will control you.”—Ronald Reagan

The founders’ wisdom has never been more sorely—I would say desperately—needed than it is now. Which is precisely why they have been slandered and cast out by the radical leftists who now run this country and its major institutions. At some level, they intuit that the founders make them look unspeakably ignorant, even evil, by comparison.

              I snuck a quote from Ronald Reagan in at the end of my “founders statements,” though Reagan, of course, wasn’t a “founding father.” However, after the disaster that was the 1970s, Reagan went a long way towards “re-founding” the United States, by returning it to its founding principles.

So I close with two more quotes from the Gipper, both particularly pertinent to our current situation.

*Reagan, with typical good humor, rhetorically asked what the nine most terrifying words in the English language were. He would answer: ”I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” (If this no longer elicits knowing laughter, we are in such trouble.)

*”Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”

Seattle Law Enforcement Tells Citizens To Give Criminals "Whatever They're Looking For"

 

Seattle, like many American cities long controlled by Democrats, is experiencing rising crime rates in general-- and especially large increases in staged carjackings. What does law enforcement suggest citizens do in these trying times? Sheriff David Robinson recommends that “they give up their car keys” and give the criminals “whatever they’re looking for.”

That’s the spirit! Just surrender to evil! It’s the New American Way! We’ve come full circle from “Don’t Tread On Me” to “Take Anything You Want, I Won’t Resist.”

Nike says, “Just do it!” Nancy Reagan said “Just say no.” And now police say, “just give up.” Inspiring!

The Spirit of ’76? What if the colonists had decided that the British were just too strong-- and just gave up? The likes of George Washington and Samuel Adams could have simply told them to give up their guns and hand the keys to their homes over to the Redcoats. After all, the British had a large and experienced army and the best navy in the world. The colonists had neither.

Lewis and Clark blazed a trail through the wilderness to the Northwest, arriving at the Pacific Ocean (between what are the now crime ravaged cities of Seattle and Portland.) They faced many staggering obstacles, among them the Rocky Mountains, abhorrent weather, hostile natives, dangerous animals, and various diseases. Perhaps they should’ve just given up. Same for those who came later via Conestoga Wagon.

We must rise up and demand that authorities get tough on crime and support law enforcement. We must demand that they enforce bail, We must rid ourselves of Soros-funded D.A.s who never met a criminal they wouldn’t coddle. No more catch and release, no more recidivism. We must vote out the people in power who put the “needs” of criminals above those of law-abiding (and tax-paying!) citizens.

Unless we recover our courage, our spirit, and our moral character, criminals will forever be in the driver’s seat-- and we will be left helpless on the side of the road…wondering what went wrong.

Germany's Government To Ban Opposing Political Party, Too?

 

Germany’s AfD (Alternative for Germany), a populist political party whose main policy plank is dramatically tightening Germany’s open borders, is in danger of being outright banned.

Germany’s government, like America’s, is currently dominated by hypocritical leftist autocrats who are now debating whether to ban what it considers to be the “far-right” Alternative for Germany party. AfD has surged in popularity recently, and is now polling at 21%, despite warnings from intelligence officials that its members are becoming increasingly “extreme.” German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier recently stated, “We all have it in our hands to put those who despise our democracy in their place.” He was addressing the country’s domestic intelligence agency. (Which is not the STASI.”)

Thomas Haldenwang, the nation’s domestic spy chief, said: “We see a considerable number of protagonists in this party that spread hate against all types of minorities here in Germany.”

 

This whole situation is remarkably similar to that in the U.S., with those in power branding their political opponents as “extreme” and “far-right,” and attempting to marginalize, punish, cancel—or imprison—those with whom they disagree.

The AfD isn’t spreading hate. Rather, it is the elites who lord over their citizens and mock them for their beliefs-- and who tell them what speech/thought is and isn’t acceptable—that are doing so.

Leftists are spreading hate against the AfD, which is, in fact, a minority party. Banning its existence outright would be a remarkably Nazi-like thing to do, and particularly ironic while saying this must be done to save “our democracy.”

 

 In Germany, Canada, the United States-- and elsewhere-- “save our democracy” has become nothing but a dog-whistle. It is nought but shorthand for “cancel or lock-up anyone with whom we disagree!”

 

So the correct response to edicts from the likes of President Steinmeier, Prime Minister Trudeau, and President Biden would not be, “Sich Heil!”

It would be “See ya’!”

Biden Administration Won't Decouple Ukraine Funding From Hurricane Idalia Relief

 

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre recently went on the record proclaiming that the Biden administration will not vow to decouple billions of taxpayer dollars going to Ukraine from relief funding for American victims of Hurricane Idalia in Florida and the wildfires in Maui, Hawaii. And nobody seems to care, least of all the mainstream media.

During a September 6 White House press briefing, Jean-Pierre was asked if disaster relief funds should be decoupled from additional aid to Ukraine. She replied, “Look, we see them both as incredibly important. I just laid out at the top what we saw happen in Ukraine: 16 civilians died.”

Yes, and at least 115 died in the Lahaina fire, and more are still missing. Hurricane Idalia killed three and caused many billions of dollars in damage. Both of those disasters afflicted Americans, and still Biden stuck to his “America Last” policy. I’m certain, however, that if fires and/or hurricanes ravaged Washington, D.C., Democrats would put forth numerous stand-alone spending bills to take care of their own. And probably take legal action against the fire and/or hurricane for attempted insurrection.

What if the George H.W. Bush administration had declared that it wasn’t going to decouple funding for the Afghan resistance fighters from relief funding for American victims of Hurricane Hugo? Or even from funding to clean up the waters around Alaska after the Exxon-Valdez oil spill? “It’s fund the Mujahideen or screw you South Carolinians and Alaskans!”

Think the media might have mentioned that?

What if FDR had refused to decouple Lend Lease loans to the USSR from money dedicated to help rebuild Pearl Harbor after the Japanese attack on December 7th, 1941? How would that have looked? What message(s) would that have sent?

On the other hand, today’s Democrats wouldn’t agree to decouple funding to fight “global warming” from that needed to rebuild the United States after a nuclear exchange and subsequent “nuclear winter.”

It appears President Peters Biden wishes to Make America Weak Again, Make America Broke Again…and Make Americans Miserable Again (MAMA).

Trudeau's Government Blames Oil And Gas Companies For Wildfires

 

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s radical left Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault drew a dubious link between his nation’s oil and gas sector and its wildfires during his visit to China. That he visited the communist nation at this time angered many, but damning his own country’s oil and gas industry while speaking in—and to--  the world’s leading polluter was illogical, repulsive, and completely beyond the pale.

Guilbeault said that he was “disappointed” that the CEO of Suncor, a Calgary based company which provides natural resources for all of Canada – seemed more concerned with producing oil and gas rather than lowering carbon emissions at a time when “tens of thousands of Canadians” were forced to flee from recent wildfires. 

Guilbeault stated, “To see the leader of a great Canadian company say that he is basically disengaging from climate change and sustainability, that he’s going to focus on short-term profit, it’s all the wrong answers.” He added, “If I was convinced before that we needed to do regulation, I am even more convinced now.”

This led Alberta Premier Danielle Smith-- who is apparently sane—to reply, “Minister Guilbeault’s comments are a continuation of his provocative verbal attacks on Alberta's energy sector, the most environmentally responsible and ethical energy-producing jurisdiction in the world.”

Guilbeault’s inference that “climate change” is the root cause of recent wildfires is as spurious and unscientific as stating that spoons cause obesity. In truth, many of the fires appear to have been the result of arson. In fact, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) have recently arrested a number of arsonists-- who have been charged with lighting fires across the country, including in the Yukon, British Columbia and Alberta. Moreover, satellite footage from Quebec showed suspiciously simultaneous eruptions of several blazes across the province, leading to concerns that those fires, too, were the result of a coordinated effort by arsonists. Fires have also ravaged much of Greece this summer. Government spokesperson Pavlos Marinakis recently told Greek public broadcaster ERT that of 140 wildfire-related arrests, 79 were related to arson. (That’s 56% for those of you who may currently be attending an “institution of higher learning.”)

Many of the fires are at least partially the result of leaving too much deadwood and flammable material on forest floors, usually due to “environmentalists’” wishes. Of course, more folks live in more areas, and fire detection and reporting are better than in prior eras, too. And, at least in the case of Canada, one gets the impression that an all-out effort to contain these conflagrations hasn’t been made…possibly to drive home the point that global warming is going to be the death of us all, and sooner rather than later. (It wouldn’t stun me if some of the fires were set by those with an agenda.)

A recent study by Danish author and academic Bjorn Lomborg, published in the Wall Street Journal, illustrated a vast disparity between the actual number of wildfires and the attention given them by the mainstream media and politicians. 

Lomborg asserted: “Climate change hasn’t set the world on fire. It turns out the percentage of the globe that burns each year has been declining since 2001.”  

Yet, despite that inconvenient truth, the mainstream media-- and many politicians—insist that there are ever more fires as a direct result of “climate change.” In furtherance of their agenda, reporting on “climate change” has increased by 400% between 2010 and 2020.  

Now that burns me up.

White House "Asks" Media To Quit Asking Questions About Biden And Focus On Trump

 

The massive, bold red headline on the Drudge Report screamed: “Trump Behind Biden Impeachment Push!” That may be the dumbest headline I’ve ever seen, and that’s saying something! This, of course, immediately led to questions such as: how? Especially as Biden and the Democrats have been desperately trying to imprison him lately.

The yahoo!news article breathlessly stated: “Trump has talked regularly by phone with members of the ultraconservative House Freedom Caucus and other congressional Republicans who pushed for impeachment, according to a person close to Trump who was not authorized to publicly discuss the conversations. Trump has encouraged the effort both privately and publicly. Trump has been talking to congressional Republicans (especially of the “ultraconservative” variety)? Shocking. That he might encourage them in their potential attempt to impeach Biden, the man who has sicced the DOJ, FBI, and other now-weaponized federal agencies against him for daring to suggest the 2020 presidential election was not entirely on the up-and-up is less than surprising. Especially considering the Democrats impeached him—twice—on trumped up charges that were more bogus than a John Brennan testimony.

And now we find out that the White House put out a lengthy memo on Sept. 13th, attacking the media and demanding that reporters cease and desist their inquiries about President Biden and instead focus on Republicans. This unprecedented directive itself should be enough to impeach Biden…and everyone in his administration that had a hand in it, were that possible.

From the document: 

It’s time for the media to ramp up its scrutiny of House Republicans for opening an impeachment inquiry based on lies. When even House Republican members are admitting that there is simply no evidence that Joe Biden did anything wrong, much less impeachable, that should set off alarm bells for news organizations.

For years, Republicans in Congress have tried to muddy the waters by attracting media coverage of their allegations, and as they choose to move forward with impeachment, it is the responsibility of the independent press to treat their claims with the appropriate scrutiny. Covering impeachment as a process story – Republicans say X, but the White House says Y – is a disservice to the American public who relies on the independent press to hold those in power accountable.

House Republican leaders should be held accountable for the fact that they are lurching toward impeachment over allegations that are not only unfounded but, in virtually all cases, have been actively disproven – including by witnesses and documents in their own investigations, as well as years-old congressional probes and even the former President’s first impeachment inquiry.

As you begin to cover the House GOP’s impeachment push more intensely, enclosed you will find a 14-page appendix that comprehensively addresses the 7 key lies House Republicans are suggesting they are basing an impeachment on. We hope this document helps provide you with factual information useful in your reporting on their unprecedented, unfounded claims underlying an impeachment inquiry without any evidence of wrongdoing.

 

There. Are. No. Words. To. Describe. The. Shamelessness. Not to mention the hypocrisy and gaslighting. “An impeachment inquiry based on lies?” Hello! Steele Dossier anyone? Total fabrication. And “the call” with Zelensky? Inquiring about the investigation into Biden corruption? You know, the investigation that Robert L Peters the Big Guy thwarted by getting the prosecutor fired by threatening to hold back $1 billion in aid?

 

“The American public” relies on “the independent press to hold those in power accountable?” You mean like the FBI heads who lied under oath? The 51 former intelligence officials who lied repeatedly and still refuse to apologize for their prevarications intended to take down a sitting president? President Biden and his son Hunter themselves? An independent press?! Hah! Enemies of the people they are supposed to serve.

 

“Without any evidence of wrongdoing?” You mean other than Hunter’s laptop, the Biden video regarding Shokin bank records, government documents, phone calls, business meetings, statements of former partners and clients, Hunter’s own words, emails, texts, WhatsApp messages and whistleblower testimony, among others?

 

Chuck Schumer, a fervent supporter of both the preposterous Trump impeachments, was so indignant at the prospect of a Biden impeachment that he took to the platform formerly known as Twitter to state: "I think the impeachment inquiry is absurd. The American people want us to do something that will make their lives better — not go off on these chases and witch hunts!"

 

“Witch hunts?” He stole that one from President Trump. Talk about appropriation!

In fact, the entire memo dressing down the media and providing them with “factual information” accused Republicans, famously timid and na├»ve, of doing precisely what they themselves had already done—twice—to Trump.

An independent media would scoff at such transparent tripe—and be angered by the condescension and coercion from the Biden White House.

It’s too bad we don’t have one.

Monument To Reconciliation To Be Removed From Arlington Cemetery

 

Apparently, as a result of a decision by the now disbanded “Congressional Naming Commission,” the Moses Ezekiel Reconciliation Monument will be removed from Arlington Cemetery. The now defunct panel's Final Report, issued on September 19, 2022, includes the following information specific to the statue: “The Department of Army should consider the most cost-effective method of removal and disposal of the monument’s elements in their planning.”

This can only make sense to people who are ignorant of American history…or who detest it. To celebrate and foster the country’s reconciliation and healing after the Civil War, President McKinley, a Union army veteran, told the nation, “Sectional feeling no longer holds back the love we bear each other… The Union is once more the common altar of our love and loyalty, our devotion and sacrifice.” In support of those ends, McKinley promoted a bill to establish a Confederate section in Arlington Cemetery, which eventually resulted in the reinterring of some 260 Confederate bodies from various previous burial places to that hallowed ground. Several years later, then Secretary of War William Taft approved a request for the erection of a monument in that Confederate burial area.

Moses Ezekiel, a world-renowned American sculptor and the first Jewish cadet at Virginia Military Institute (VMI), was chosen to create the monument that would capture the spirit of reconciliation, serve as memorial to the hundreds of dead Confederates buried in Section 16, and be recognized as a prominent “Peace Monument,” commemorating the miraculous reunification of the North and South. 

Later, in 1912, then President Taft presided over the monument’s cornerstone dedication ceremony, describing it as “a beautiful monument to the heroic dead of the South,” and “a benediction of all true Americans.”

In 1914, President Woodrow Wilson unveiled the completed monument, calling it “an emblem of a reunited people.” He added that it would help “to declare this chapter in the history of the United States closed.”

Only Democrats could be for the removal of the “Reconciliation Monument,” literally a specifically designed and designated symbol of inclusion, peace and unity. That they get away with proclaiming to be the party of tolerance, peace, and inclusion simply illustrates the stupefying ignorance of a majority of Americans, and the underlying, similarly stupefying concomitant bias of the mainstream media and Big Education.

Democrats were pro-slavery, pro-succession, and anti-reconstruction. It should not be surprising that those in the Congressional Shaming Naming Commission—and the army, apparently-- want to abolish a monument to love, loyalty, devotion, sacrifice, and unity. Sadly, this is not ironic, but rather fitting, for the Party of Destruction and Division.

Rob Reiner Says All Opposition Must Be Stifled If We Are To Save "Our Democracy"

 

Rob “Mad Dog” Reiner recently stated (on the platform formerly known as Twitter):

Hard Reality: For our Democracy to survive, two things have to happen. Donald Trump needs to be Convicted for Jan. 6th and there can be no Third Party Candidate.”

Right, for “our Democracy” to survive, the leader of the opposition party must be locked up-- and no other candidates can be allowed to run.

That is a particularly strange definition of Democracy. In fact, it is an antonym.

I would say that Meathead Reiner is insane, but that would give insanity a bad name.

Reiner is a German name, nein?

He would’ve fit in nicely in the Third Reich. I can almost hear him now-- standing in the square in a nice black uniform with red trim-- screaming: ”Wir mussen all opposition zerquetschen! Tod to Trump supporters! Sich heil!”

Do those of us who truly value a representative democratic republic a favor, Rob: go lay by your dish.

New York To Be "Destroyed" By Illegal Immigrants? Force Them To Stay In Texas!

 

New York City Mayor Eric Adams recently told those attending an Upper West Side Town Hall meeting: "Let me tell you something, New Yorkers. Never in my life have I had a problem that I did not see an ending to. I don't see an ending to this. I don't see an ending to this. This issue will destroy New York City. Destroy New York City.”

 

Yikes! What is the existential problem threatening Gotham? What is rotting the Big Apple? It is this: the city has been grappling with the influx of over 110,000 migrants just since last year, and its mayor seems unable to deal with the challenges that has posed. So much so, in fact, that he added, “The city we knew we're about to lose.”

 

New York is a sanctuary city. But, apparently, not much of one. Be careful what you wish for, I guess. Of course, it’s all just empty virtue signaling. Don’t put out the welcome mat for strangers from other lands unless you really mean it.

 

In any case, Mayor Adams, and several other big city Democrats, seem to be losing their patience with the Biden administration’s unwillingness to secure the border.

 

So now we hear the Biden administration is considering a plan to potentially force migrants who cross into the U.S. illegally to stay in Texas, at least while they wait out their asylum screening. According to The Los Angeles Times, administration officials are framing the proposal as a way to curb the flow of illegal immigrants at the southern border. The Times, citing three U.S. officials not authorized to discuss the matter, reported that, under this plan, the migrants’ location(s) would be tracked via GPS monitoring devices, such as ankle bracelets

 

The administration refuses to build a wall. It has undone what Trump did. It has shown, month after month, year after year, that it has absolutely no intention of “curbing the flow of immigrants at the southern border.” For political purposes, however, it may want to keep them contained to Texas and a few other border states, rather than allowing them to travel to “Sanctuary Cities.” That should tell a sentient person all that needs to be known about Democrats’ transparency, genuineness…and character.

  

In summation, these political frauds and charlatans are saying: “Come one, come all, to the United States of America! You are seen, you are valued, and you are welcome here! But only in Texas.”

 

Will cries of “Remember the Alamo!” soon ring out once again in the Lonestar State? Perhaps it will once more seek its independence.

If the Biden administration keeps treating Texas this way, it will have every right to do so.

Today In Insanity, Vol. V

 

Today In Insanity, Vol. V

*O’Keefe Media Group (OMG) recently released nearly 20 minutes of police bodycam footage, obtained via FOIA requests, which showed New Jersey school board officials calling the police on citizens who they claimed looked “Trumpish.”

“The police colluded with school officials to scan license plates of school board meeting attendees who looked different,” OMG head James O’Keefe said.

Because, you know, The Left doesn’t like those who look “different.” Or think different. In fact, progressives want to persecute anyone who looks “Trumpish.” And they are actively doing so to Trump and his supporters. One might state, accurately, that there is systemic anti-Trump bias and bigotry in today’s U.S. The modern Democrat Party itself does not cotton to those who have strayed off its ideological plantation, tolerance and inclusiveness be damned. Come to think of it, it never has.

*After 2025, customers of Bank Australia will no longer be eligible to get funding to buy new cars that run on fossil fuels. Sasha Courville, chief impact officer at the bank, explained: ”By ceasing car loans for new fossil fuel vehicles, we are sending a signal to the Australian market about the rapid acceleration in the transition from internal combustion to electric vehicles we expect to see in the next few years.” Actually, Bank Australia is sending a signal to Australians that their every desire and purchase decision is subject to the whims and agenda of the elites in government and large corporations that rule roughshod over them. The corollary, of course, is that private property rights are not inherent, but tenuous…and at the mercy of Big Brother and The Deep State.

*British police recently arrested a Black Christian street preacher for sharing the word of Jesus. Thank God they did, or pedestrians might have been subject to criminally subversive messages such as the importance of Faith, Hope, and Love. Apparently, nobody cares when a Christian is treated like that, but don’t try to arrest a BLM rioter! Nor can you treat a Muslim like that! In fact, in cities like Minneapolis and New York, Muslim calls to prayer can be blasted out publicly on loudspeakers five times a day, no permit required!

Is there a key “takeaway” from these three stories? Is there a lesson to be learned? If so, what is it, what is the overriding theme? Yes. And yes. Sadly, it is that Western nations seem bizarrely intent on allowing their own culture and tradition-- religious and otherwise-- to be disrespected and displaced by virtually anyone else’s.

Biden Says He Won't Make Trump's Legal Troubles An Issue In 2024 Campaign

 

Cedric Richmond, the co-chair of President Biden’s reelection campaign recently said that Biden is not looking to make former President Donald Trump’s legal troubles central to his 2024 message.

In an interview with ABC "This Week" co-anchor Martha Raddatz, Richmond stated: "The president has said from the beginning that he wanted an independent Justice Department ... so we're not going to comment. We're not going to focus on Donald Trump's legal problems. We will let the justice system take care of what the justice system should take care of.”

An “independent Justice Department?” Biden’s “Justice Department” is as independent from his administration as the Waffen-SS was from Hitler’s Nazi Party.

On the evening of August 24th, as former President Trump's motorcade was arriving at the Fulton County, Georgia, jail for his surrender on trumped-up charges related to his alleged attempt to overturn his alleged 2020 election loss in that state, Biden (or more likely his handlers) put out this online and social media appeal for monetary donations: "Apropos of nothing, I think today's a great day to give to my campaign.”

That appeal-- snarky, vile, mocking, and vaguely threatening—is apropos of everything pertaining to the Biden administration.

Of course the Biden administration isn’t “going to focus on Donald Trump’s legal problems.” It created them. Of course Biden will leave it to his Department of Injustice (DOI?) to take care of what he and his administration want to “take care of.”

Biden is not looking to make former President Donald Trump’s legal troubles central to his 2024 message because his message has already been sent: he wants Trump indicted and in jail.

To Biden, it’s simple: no Trump, no issue…and no further message required.

The National Archives And Records Administration Refuses To Turn Over 5,400 Pseudonymous Biden Emails

 

The National Archives and Records Administration recently admitted that it is in possession of nearly 5,400 emails, electronic records and documents that potentially show President Biden using pseudonyms during his vice presidency…but it is effectively refusing to release them. NARA confirmed the existence of the vast quantity of sender-disguised emails in response to a June 2022 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by the Southeastern Legal Foundation, a nonprofit constitutional legal group. The request sought emails pertaining to the accounts of Robin Ware, Robert L. Peters, and JRB Ware — all pseudonyms the now 80-year-old president was known to use in the White House during his time as vice-president under President Barack Obama.

Why do folks usually try to send anonymous emails, or missives using an assumed name? Perhaps to keep themselves separated from information-- or actions-- they don’t wish others to know they possessed-- or undertook? Plausible deniability? Surely a Biden wouldn’t involve himself in any kind of nefarious activity, right?

One wonders if an email such as this was part of the trove:

Note: Dear NARA, DO NOT comply with the Southeastern Legal Foundation’s FOIA request! (They are a bunch off biased jerks, not like the wonderful folks at the Southern Poverty Law Center.) There will be hell to pay if you do!

Sincerely,

Robert L. Peters
