Episode 792 – The Courts Are Letting Them Come After Your Kids!

A judge opens the door for allowing kids to watch porn in Texas. That ain’t going to go well.

Of all the people sneaking over the border illegally, a family that has a legitimate asylum claim and here legally is being threatened to be deported. The reasons are suspect.

And the impeachment inquiry begins today and Joe Biden has some questions to answer.

Dumbass of the Day

I Guess We Can Show Porn to Kids

According to the Daily Wire:

A federal judge on Tuesday blocked the implementation of a Texas law banning “sexually oriented” performances in front of minors. 

Judge David Hittner of the Southern District of Texas said that the law violated the First Amendment and chilled free speech in the state. The ruling blocks a law signed by Republican Governor Greg Abbott in June. The law has been called a “drag ban” but applies to any sexually oriented performance. 

“Not all people will like or condone certain performances,” Hittner wrote. “This is no different than a person’s opinion on certain comedy or genres of music, but that alone does not strip First Amendment protection. However, in addition to the pure entertainment value there are often political, social, and cultural messages involved in drag performances which strengthen the Plaintiff’s position.”

Hittner, who was appointed by Ronald Reagan, said that the law “impermissibly infringes on the First Amendment and chills free speech.”

He said it would be reasonable to assume that other activities, like cheerleading, dancing, or live theater, could become a crime if the law takes effect. 

According to the law, “A person who controls the premises of a commercial enterprise may not allow a sexually oriented performance to be presented on the premises in the presence of an individual younger than 18 years of age.” It would have allowed violators to be fined up to $10,000.

This is Real Asylum

According to the Daily Wire:

A Christian family of nine who fled persecution in Germany and moved to the United States in 2008 was stunned when immigration agents told it to prepare for deportation after 15 years of life in America, but remains hopeful that “God will make a way” for them to remain in the country they have come to love. 

In a phone interview with The Daily Wire on Wednesday, Uwe Romeike said he and his family, who settled in a small town in Tennessee, were caught off guard when they were told to come in for a meeting with an immigration agent after they just had their annual check-in a few months ago. During that check-in earlier this month, Uwe, his wife Hannelore, and their five oldest children were told to prepare to self-deport, and return in four weeks with their German passports. 

“This came as a surprise. We did not expect anything like this,” Uwe said, adding that the feds have not given them any explanation for the sudden move to deport him and his family. But Uwe, a piano accompanist at Carson-Newman University, said he is trusting God with what happens next.

“We still trust God to make a way for us to stay here. I know it’s kind of impossible, but that’s where we know God can still do the impossible,” Uwe said, adding that if they are forced to go back to Germany, they will face the same type of persecution they fled as they continue to homeschool their two youngest children, such as being fined around $300 a day. 

The attorney representing the Romeikes, Kevin Boden of the Home School Legal Defense Association, told The Daily Wire that it appears Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) received new orders on handling the Romeikes, but said it’s unclear where the “change of orders” came from.

Wonder Why They Would Do That?

According to Daily Wire:

Assistant U.S. Attorney Lesley Wolf blocked federal agents from including then Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in their investigation into whether his son, Hunter Biden, violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).

The revelation was contained in a new, lengthy report from the House Ways and Means Committee’s investigation of the government’s handling of the investigations into the Biden family.

“As a priority, someone needs to redraft attachment B. I am not sure what this is cut and pasted from but other than the attribution, location and identity stuff at the end, none if it is appropriate and within the scope of this warrant,” Wolf said in an email to FBI and other U.S. officials. “Please focus on FARA evidence only. There should be nothing about Political Figure 1 in here.”

Episode 791 – Why Fix Something that Wasn’t Broken, Neil?

The San Francisco mayor finally tries to go down the right path concerning homeless drug addicts and it might cost her her job.

If Target leaves blue cities, who are they going to virtue signal to?

And the writer’s strike in Hollywood is over. Did anyone notice?

On the Right Track

According to Fox News:

Democratic San Francisco Mayor London Breed on Tuesday unveiled a plan to require anyone receiving welfare to comply with mandatory drug testing and treatment programs amid growing pressure to get ahold of the city’s homeless and fentanyl crises – the same day a new primary challenger in next year’s election entered the race.

Announcing the proposal with Supervisor Matt Dorsey, a recovering addict and former spokesperson for the police department, Breed said the new initiative would require individuals with substance use disorders who want to access county-funded cash assistance to be enrolled in treatment and services. 

“San Francisco is a city of compassion, but also a city that demands accountability,” Breed said in a statement. “We fund a wide range of services, and we want to help people get the care they need but under current state law, local government lack tools to compel people into treatment. This initiative aims to create more accountability and help get people to accept the treatment and services they need.”   

“I strongly support Mayor Breed’s initiative, which will better incentivize treatment and recovery for a population that’s at wildly disproportionate risk for drug addiction and overdose fatalities,” Dorsey added. “We’re facing an unprecedented loss of life in San Francisco, and we know coercive interventions can work.

But the mayor faces an uphill battle to get the legislation approved by more progressive Democratic counterparts on City Council, as the proposal deviates from the ultra-liberal city’s once prevailing view against forcing involuntary treatment for the mentally ill. Meanwhile, as open-air drug markets, homelessness and rising crime bring public safety concerns to the forefront ahead of an election year, the announcement from City Hall came the same day Daniel Lurie, a longtime nonprofit executive and an heir to the Levi Strauss & Co. fortune, formally announced a 2024 Democratic challenge to Breed.

Now Do Crime

According to the Daily Wire:

Target announced plans to shut down nine stores across four different U.S. states after ongoing reports of violence, theft, and organized retail crime have threatened the safety of shoppers and employees.

The company said effective October 21, three stores in the San Francisco-Oakland area, three more in Portland, two locations in Seattle, and one store in the Harlem neighborhood of New York City will permanently close.

“We cannot continue operating these stores because theft and organized retail crime are threatening the safety of our team and guests, and contributing to unsustainable business performance,” Target said in a news release.

Will Anyone Care?

The writers strike might be over. Lets take a look at what they got.

According to the Daily Wire:

The three-year agreement addresses the main areas of concern for the union, including increased compensation, guaranteed length of employment, mandated writer’s room staff minimums, and protections against the use of AI (artificial intelligence).

The contract won’t be officially accepted until it’s ratified by union members following a voting period from October 2 until October 9. If certain portions aren’t passed, the strike could resume.

Specifically, the contract guarantees 5% raises in the first year, 4% raises in the second year, and 3.5% in the third. Health fund contributions will increase to 12% of the companies’ reportable earnings, per CNN, and writers working on the same script will no longer need to split pension and health contributions.

The outlet noted that for big streaming projects, including feature-length productions with a budget of at least $30 million, writer compensation will increase 18% to $100,000 minimum. Writers will also receive an increased percentage of residual pay for streaming projects they’ve worked on, and companies agreed to be more transparent about reporting viewership numbers.

As for the AI concerns, the document states that “AI can’t write or rewrite literary material.”

Episode 790 – That Darn Constitution Keeps Getting in the Way!

Hunter Biden keeps trying to flex his muscles but it’s going to just turn out to be another bad decision.

The courts and the Constitution continues to save our rights to the chagrin of the Biden administration.

And atheists continue to misread the First Amendment.

Dumbasses of the Day

Another Bad Decision

According to Fox News:

Hunter Biden on Tuesday filed a lawsuit against Rudy Giuliani alleging the former President Trump lawyer violated his privacy rights by illegally disseminating content from Biden’s infamous laptop.

The complaint filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California states Giuliani is “primarily responsible” for the “total annihilation” of Biden’s digital privacy. It also names Robert Costello, a former federal prosecutor who previously represented Giuliani, as a defendant, Fox News has confirmed. 

“For the past many months and even years, Defendants have dedicated an extraordinary amount of time and energy toward looking for, hacking into, tampering with, manipulating, copying, disseminating, and generally obsessing over data that they were given that was taken or stolen from Plaintiff’s devices or storage platforms, including what Defendants claim to have obtained from Plaintiff’s alleged ‘laptop’ computer,” Biden’s attorneys wrote in the complaint, claiming that the data was not even from a “laptop,” but from an “external drive.”

Thank God for the Courts and Constitution

The courts and the Constitution just keep getting in the way of the democrats tyranny.

According to CNN:

A federal judge struck down California’s ban on firearm magazines holding more than 10 rounds Friday as unconstitutional, “arbitrary and capricious.”

The ban, which was adopted through a 2016 proposition, had gone through various appeals until the US Supreme Court sent the case back to lower courts following its 2022 ruling in New York State Rifle and Pistol Association vs. Bruen. The landmark decision requires that firearm regulations don’t impede on the language of the Second Amendment and be “consistent with this Nation’s historical tradition.”

US District Judge Roger T. Benitez in Friday’s decision said the ban on high-capacity magazines fails to meet that standard and that “there is no national tradition of prohibiting or regulating firearms based on firing capacity or ammunition capacity.”

Benitez wrote that one “government solution to a few mad men with guns … makes into criminals responsible, law-abiding people wanting larger magazines simply to protect themselves.”

California Gov. Gavin Newsom in a statement called the decision “politics, pure and simple,” noting Benitez’s record for rolling back gun control legislation.

No, Gavin, its not politics. It’s the law.

California Attorney General Rob Bonta filed a notice of appeal, vowing to “fight for our authority to keep Californians safe from weapon enhancements designed to cause mass casualties.”

The injunction on the ban will be stayed for 10 days, according to the decision.

This law is going to go to the Supreme Court where it will be struck down by a 6-3 decision because only six of the Supreme Court justices can read.

Joe Biden had some things to say about it:

He doesn’t know what an assault weapon is because anything can be an assault weapon. Hell, a tennis ball can be considered and assault weapon.

Also, if I want 80 rounds in my weapon, that on me. It’s none of his f-ing business how many rounds I have.

At least he didn’t bring up the dear in the Kevlar vest thing.

Here he is, acting like a tough guy:

This is more hyperbolae. There have not been 500 mass shooting, at least not how we think of them. If there were, we wouldn’t be covering any of the shootings.

Most shooting are gang related where multiple people are shot and he considers those mass shootings. Well, there is a cure to those. Put those people in prison or execute them. But this can’t be done because of equity and racism or some suck nonsense.

Notice these people always create the problems then demand we give them more power so they can “fix” the problems by adding more policies and remove more freedoms that will just perpetuate the problems.

Nope, They’re Wrong

According to Fox News:

An anti-religion group attempting to throw cold water on an Alabama university after the school’s football coach was filmed assisting with the baptism of a student has a “twisted interpretation of the First Amendment,” a legal expert says.

On Friday, the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) sent a letter to Auburn University President Christopher Roberts warning that more than 200 student baptisms, one of which was assisted by Auburn Tigers head football coach Hugh Freeze, somehow violated the Constitution’s Establishment Clause.

“These ongoing and repeated constitutional violations at the University create a coercive environment that excludes those students who don’t subscribe to the Christian views being pushed onto players by their coaches,” it states.

But Tyson Langhofer, senior counsel and director of the Center for Academic Freedom with Alliance Defending Freedom, is calling FFRF’s letter a “twisted interpretation of the First Amendment.”

“Freedom From Religion Foundation’s twisted interpretation of the First Amendment has the potential to crush both students’ and their coaches’ essential right to live out their faith,” Langhofer told Fox News Digital in a statement.

Alliance Defending Freedom is one of the most successful Supreme Court litigation firms, winning numerous cases dealing with First Amendment and religious freedoms.

Here is the text of the First Amendment:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Episode 789 – Let’s Not Cheer for Him Yet

A guy who was indicted for bribery and corruption 5 years has been indicted for bribery and corruption.

Are we going to learn of a scam that is along the lines of Bernie Madoff, Lincoln Savings and Loan, and Enron? I’m think yes but no one will do anything about it.

And even a blind squirrel gets a nut. I’m talking about the governor of California, Gavin Newsom, getting something right.

Dumbasses of the Day

The Team Sucks Too

According to ABC 7 News, Chicago:

The estimated loss is over $100,000.

It happened sometime overnight on Wednesday.

Staff said the thieves tore down a security fence to drive the equipment out of the garage.

Criminals are so brazen in Chicago, they pull this? They stole lawn mowers, for God’s sake.

https://abc7chicago.com/chicago-bears-news-football-soldier-field-nfl/13815022/

Who’s Have Thunk It?

According to the Daily Wire:

Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and his wife Nadine have been indicted on bribery charges, according to the Department of Justice. 

The indictment comes after U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Damian Williams opened a corruption investigation last October into Menendez, who has been in the Senate since 2006 and is chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. 

Menendez faces charges of conspiracy to commit bribery, conspiracy to commit honest services fraud, and conspiracy to commit extortion under color of official right.

This guy was accused of the same thing in 2015 and went to court. The jury hung and the case was just dropped.

He is accused of taking gold, cars, jobs for family members, mortgage payments and cash in exchange for access by foreign officials (like jobs), policy manipulation and the transfer of classified information. By the way, that makes this treason which is a death penalty level case.

The evidence is pretty damning this time. They have money, gold and cars. They also have DNA evidence (not sure how that works) and, since they know he was dealing directly with Egypt, they probably have witness testimony and communications.

This whole thing was started because he was being investigated for having sex with underage girls in the Dominican Republic.

This is a classy guy and is proof as to why we need term limits for politicians.

You Mean is Was a Scam?

According to the Daily Wire:

Boston University announced Wednesday that it would conduct an “inquiry” into Dr. Ibram X. Kendi’s Center for Antiracist Research amid complaints about its culture.

The inquiry will be a broader version of a previous “examination,” looking at the center’s grant management practices, a spokesperson for Boston University told The Boston Globe.

The inquiry also comes shortly after layoffs at the center. Kendi recently laid off about 20 employees, more than half the center’s staff, the university confirmed last week.

Kendi, a prominent critical race theory scholar, has become an influential voice on “antiracism” over the last several years, especially after his book, “How to Be an Antiracist,” became a New York Times bestseller in 2020 in the wake of George Floyd’s death.

He has drawn criticism for promoting the theory that all racial disparities are due to racism. Kendi has also faced criticism for his book “Antiracist Baby,” a children’s picture book that introduces children to the concept of antiracism.

Some things:

  • His birthname was Henry Rogers. He changed it for his brand.
  • He had a mediocre academic career.
    • He graduated high school with under a 3.0 GPA.
    • Had a 1000 on his SATs.
    • Some considered him an underachiever. I think it’s because he’s dumb (see the audio below).
    • He was an affirmative action pick to get into college and worked it all the way to his doctrate.
  • He’s mainly known for his book, How to be an Antiracist, which basically says:
    • Every white person is racist and oppressive.
    • The system is racist and oppressive.
    • Everything is based on a system of power, the more power you have the more racist you are.
      • Because blacks have no power in society they can never be racist.
    • Every policy he does not like is racist. Every system must be torn down.
    • Discrimination against white people is necessary to be antiracist.
    • He never defines a goal. This could go on forever.
  • He started an antiracist research center at Boston University around the time of the George Floyd riots.
  • He received in the vicinity of $40 million in donation from some very high profile characters.
  • They burned through that money, only produced two research papers and canned half their staff.
  • Everyone is wondering where the money went.

Well, we know where the money went. It’s sitting in Henry Rogers’ pocket. He should be in prison along with all the other race grifters.

Here is Kendi defining racism:

He’s Dumb But He Has His Moments

O have to say, I’m a little surprised about this.

According to the New York Post:

California Gov. Gavin Newsom vetoed a bill that would have pushed parents to “affirm” the gender identities of trans children — bowing to statewide pressure from parents and high-powered critics such as Elon Musk, who called it “utter madness.”

“I share a deep commitment to advancing the rights of transgender Californians, an effort that has guided my decisions through many decades in public office,” the lefty governor wrote in a message issued late Friday amid a flurry of other vetoes.

But the law, he said, would have created a new legal standard “in prescriptive terms that single out one characteristic,” the Sacramento Bee reported.

The measure, Assembly Bill 957, would have told judges to weigh parents’ support of their child’s “gender identity or gender expression” when determining custody or setting visitation rights — a change that Musk, the estranged father of a trans child, decried as “a wolf in sheep’s clothing.”

Scott Weiner, creator of the bill whose gay (and likes BDSM among other fetishes) and doesn’t have any kids said:

Called Newsom’s rejection “a tragedy for trans kids here & around the country.”

“These kids are living in fear, with right wing politicians working to out them, deny them health care, ban them from sports & restrooms & erase their humanity.”

Let’s be honest, Newsom isn’t doing this because he’s a highly moral and reasonable human being. In fact, he believes this bill should have been passed and would have signed it into law any other time. He didn’t because this would be used against him when he runs for president.

Episode 788 – Dude, It’s Just a Dog!

The author of Gender Queer says what we all already know.

An artist gets accused of fraud over his latest piece of work but should he give his money back? I say no. I’ll tell you why.

And the great debate about dog culture and pit bulls has come to a head. Let’s talk about it.

Dumbass of the Day

So, what’s a woman than?

You Don’t Say

According to the Daily Wire:

The author of “Gender Queer,” the graphic novel with explicit sexual content that has shown up in public school libraries across the country, outraging parents, is saying her book is not actually for kids.

Last week, author Maia Kobabe, who identifies as non-binary and uses the pronouns “e, em and eir,” explained that while her book might be appropriate for “older teens,” she does not recommend it for children.

“It keeps being called a children’s book … but I think that’s coming from a misreading of the comic-book form. ‘Gender Queer’ is a comic, and in full color, but that doesn’t mean it’s for children. I originally wrote it for my parents, and then for older teens who were already asking these questions about themselves. I don’t recommend this book for kids!” she told The Washington Post in an interview published last week.

“Gender Queer” includes illustrations of sex between two males with a sex toy, oral sex, masturbation, and other sexually explicit content.

Here is John Kennedy reading an excerpt from the book in a hearing in the Senate:

Why? This is Art!

Art is going straight to hell.

According to the Daily Wire:

A Danish artist is being asked to return money he was given to complete an art installation after he submitted two blank canvases as the finished project.

The Kunsten Museum of Modern Art in Denmark lent artist Jens Haaning 532,549 Dutch krone, equivalent to about $76,400, so he could recreate two earlier pieces that physically depicted the average income of a Danish citizen versus an Austrian citizen, per NPR

But rather than affixing the money to the canvases, Haaning pocketed the cash and turned in blank canvases he dubbed “Take the Money And Run.” 

The museum initially accepted the canvases and displayed them as part of its “Work It Out” show in 2021, expecting the artist to return the money afterward. But he refused, which resulted in a lengthy court battle.  

My question is why should he return it? That’s modern art today. I’m just surprised no one bought it.

Doing the Minimum

Hollywood is falling apart as well it should. They want more money and a guarantee that technology, specifically A.I., will not take the jobs of the writers or the actors. So they all went on strike.

Well, it’s been six months and guess what? No one notices or cares.

Unfortunately, there are workers that are really struggling. So the queens of empathy in Hollywood have decided to raise money for all the little people who do not have jobs because the millionaires who are on strike refuse to work. (I do hear they are paying $20 an hour at McDonald’s soon so we can give them that little piece of advice).

You would think that means each of these millionaires is going to donate $10,000 or something to help. You would be wrong. They are going to give so much more. Each actor and writer decided to auction off goods and service to the highest bidder on Ebay. Let’s take a look at what some of these caring and empathetic elites are offering us little people to help the other little people:

  • Lena Dunham will paint a mural in your home ($5100).
  • Busy Philipps will take a pottery class with you ($2800).
  • Tom Waite is auctioning off his hat.
  • Natasha Lyonne (“Orange is the New Black,” “Russian Doll”) to help you with a New York Times Sunday crossword puzzle ($2800).
  • An apron signed by Jeremy Allen White and other cast members from “The Bear”.
  • Adam Scott of “Parks and Recreation” will be walking a winner’s dog in Los Angeles for up to an hour.
  • Big-ticket items include a watercolor portrait of the winning bidder’s dog from Emmy-winning actor John Lithgow ($4,050 and rising).
  • Dinner with Bob Odenkirk and David Cross ($7,100 or more.)
  • Actors Sarah Silverman and Maggie Gyllenhaal have opted for 20-minute, 20-question ask-me-anything-style Zoom calls.
  • The casts of “New Girl” and “Bones” have each agreed to Zoom hangouts with winning bidders.
  • Nicole Kidman will hold a 20-minute Zoom meeting.

I mean, wow. The arrogance of these people is just incredible. And is this not the cheapest thing you have ever heard of?

You’d Surprised What I Think

There is an article by Abigail Weinberg at Mother Jones called Dog Culture Must End. I thought it was kind of a funny subject and Mother Jones does have some weird articles, so I read it. It’s worth taking a look at because, surprisingly, it is not as insane as the usual Mother Jones article.

When I say that I hate dogs, I don’t mean that I hate your dog. I mean that I dislike ill-behaved dogs. I mean that I’m actually a little bit scared of them, and they can sense my nervousness, and so we tend not to get along. I mean that I hate dog culture—the relentless prioritization of dogs’ needs over humans’, and the suggestion that anyone who doesn’t want their face licked by some oversized mutt is a monster.

This is not an insane opening statement. I agree with this.

This issue of our societal permissiveness toward dangerous dogs recently came up at work. During his tenure, President Joe Biden has brought two violent dogs into the White House, where thousands of people go to work every day. Last month, a conservative watchdog group released records showing that Biden’s German shepherd Commander attacked Secret Service members 10 times between October 2022 and January. And in 2021, Major Biden, another German shepherd, was exiled to Delaware after his own biting spree. When my colleague Inae Oh surveyed Mother Jones readers about how the Bidens should handle the situation, I was baffled by the responses.

This is true. Those dogs had no business being at the White House and the people working there have a right to work without being eaten by old Joe’s 120 pound dogs.

Several respondents suggested that Commander must be able to sniff out Trump allies, as if those people deserve to be savaged by an untrained dog. The notion that a dog is a reliable judge of character is symptomatic of a dog-obsessed society; a subset of our population genuinely believes that the dog is always right.

I think those people are probably making a joke, but with the weird culture we live in right now, who can be sure.

Also, is it a surprise that Trump is derided in this article? Of course not. The article wouldn’t get published otherwise.

I think the president should take a stand against this. Biden should set an example for the rest of the country by getting his animals under control or getting them out of the White House, away from an active workplace where they’ve been known to hurt people. He should make it clear that no one needs to tolerate an unruly dog. He should give a grand speech—I’ll write it, don’t worry—on how this country’s canine-first attitude is, although not a top legislative issue, extremely annoying.

I am allowing Biden to take the moderate position here, as usual. He does not need to say he hates dogs. He can simply state the obvious: It’s a dog’s world, and we’re just living in it, no matter how dangerous, dirty, or disrespectful it may be. (Hating dogs, by the way, is just another thing Trump ruined.)

Another Trump barb.

By the way, why is it a dog’s world? No one believes this. Like a lot of other things, this infatuation with dogs needs to be put in its place.

Some will read this and pretend they don’t know what I’m talking about. Come on. You’ve experienced dogs’ indiscretions. You’ve stepped on their shit in the street. And it’s not their fault: Behind every misbehaving dog is a human victim of dog culture, an individual whose mind is too warped by dog-love to consider the well-being of their fellow humans or the dog itself. In a world of doggy day care, dog parades, and dog spas, can you really blame some people for starting to believe that dogs are a little better than the rest of us?

She’s right here. Now do race. Now do gender.

Some of us act like dogs rule the world. Often, when I’m out with a friend, strolling down the street or sitting down at a restaurant, a dog walks by, and the friend interrupts our conversation to freak out about the dog. They might exclaim what a cute dog it is, or go up to the owner asking to pet it, initiating a protracted conversation about the animal’s age, sex, weight, breed, temperament, and grooming requirements. What I want to say to my friend, but never manage to spit out, is, “Have you never seen a fucking dog before?” Calm down. Why are you so excited? It’s a dog.

I think, if I were a dog owner, that I would be annoyed by people stopping me every two blocks to fawn over my pet. But I’m not a dog owner, so I’m unable to comprehend the sense of superiority and entitlement that governs their day-to-day. Imagine going through a life with a rambunctious dog and insisting to every stranger she attacks that “She’s really sweet!” Imagine dragging your dog into restaurants with a fake “service animal” vest, thereby making it harder for people who actually do need service animals to prove that they’re not just pets. Imagine bringing your dog into a wilderness area, ignoring the leash requirements, and acting surprised when your dog won’t stop chasing birds or digging up plants.

We allow dogs to act like assholes. Enough. End dog culture now.

(This is my last day after many years of blogging at Mother Jones. I’ll miss you all. And if you disagree with this post, you and your dog can bite me.)

She’s absolutely correct which is probably why Mother Jones fired her.

Dogs, or any other animal, do not belong in planes, trains, buses, restaurants, bars, coffee houses, grocery stores, malls, doctor’s offices or hospitals. They are animals, dirty and stick their noses in everyone’s business. I am not talking about service animals. But I am talking about pets.

I am also talking about emotional support animals. Those are just pets with a piece of paper signed by a doctor that save someone $50 on rent. If someone needs to have a dog to function, that person should check themselves into a mental institution. A dog ain’t going to fix their problem.

Dog culture is also just bad on our culture. We have a real problem with people not having kids. People are buying dogs and then calling themselves “dog parents” and they think that’s a replacement for kids. Here’s a little tidbit, people can’t be “dog parents”. Dog parents are other dogs And dog parents can be a-holes. You know why? Because they’re dogs. It irritates me when people say they’re not going to have kids, they’re just going to get a dog. It’s a cop out for being lazy and not wanting to be a responsible adult.

Pit Bulls

England just banned a large breed of pit bull citing the dangers of the animal. Mind you, they already banned pit bulls because they are dangerous animals (most people didn’t know that when the ban took effect). The same arguments come out when someone decides to put restrictions and bans on pit bulls in the United States.

I believe pit bulls should be banned. I believe this because most dog attacks are pit bulls (by a large margin) and they provide no real benefit. I have heard several arguments against banning pit bulls including my wife, who had a kid mauled by a pit bull. Not sure what her stance is and why she’s taking it.

Let’s go through those arguments:

  • They’re cute.
    • Nature makes things “cute” for a reason. Usually to entrap prey to eat.
    • Bears are very cute. I definitely wouldn’t go near one.
    • There are other cute dogs out there that are not built and bred to kill and weight 150 pounds.
  • I have the right to have a dog. What’s the difference than the right to own a gun?
    • You do not have a right to own a dog. It is not in the Constitution. Guns rights are.
    • Guns are inanimate objects. Dogs are not. They think and act for themselves.
  • Mean dogs are a training problem.
    • No. Dog are sentient creatures. They can be moody and get annoyed. That’s when they attack.
    • A dog can be fully trained and still flip out. It happens all the time.
  • They are no more dangerous than any other large dog.
    • No. Pit bulls have been bred to fight and kill.
    • They were made, specifically, for dog fighting.
    • They have jaws that lock.
    • They have higher levels of testosterones, making them more aggressive.
    • Pit bulls cause most of the fatalities from dog attacks.
  • My pit bull is part of the family.
    • We can refer to the above article.
    • Dogs are not family. They are not human. They are dogs.
    • They may love you when they get home but you should worry if they don’t love you when you get home.

Episode 787 – Someone Needs to Read Some Charles Darwin

The more days that pass by, the more the rape allegations against Russell Brand look like political BS.

California takes big oil to court over climate change. I think this is an awesome idea.

And everything is racist!

Dumbasses of the Day

The Drum Beats On

According to the Daily Wire:

Video streaming platform Rumble went public on Wednesday with a statement, revealing that they had received a letter from the U.K.’s Parliament demanding they demonetize Russell Brand over recent accusations of sexual misconduct — and they had refused to comply.

Rumble published a copy of the letter from Parliament — calling the governing body’s attempt to interfere with free expression on the internet “deeply inappropriate and dangerous” — along with a copy of their response via X.

Here is the letter from Rumble:

Rumble responded by releasing the letter and making this statement:

This is pure tyranny. This letter is a threat. It is scary to think that a person’s livelihood can be taken away simply by being accused of something. No evidence, no witnesses, no public statements by the “victims”, no charges. Just accusations.

I will go a step farther, if he is convicted, he should not be demonetized. Let the market take care of it. People will not listen to a rapist.

I will tell you now, these accusations are complete bullshit.

This Could Be a Good Thing

According to NBC News:

The state of California filed a lawsuit against some of the world’s largest oil and gas companies, claiming they deceived the public about the risks of fossil fuels now faulted for climate change-related storms and wildfires that caused billions of dollars in damage, officials said Saturday.

The civil lawsuit filed in state Superior Court in San Francisco also seeks creation of a fund — financed by the companies — to pay for recovery efforts following devastating storms and fires. Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom said in a statement the companies named in the lawsuit — Exxon Mobil, Shell, Chevron, ConocoPhillips and BP — should be held accountable.

“For more than 50 years, Big Oil has been lying to us — covering up the fact that they’ve long known how dangerous the fossil fuels they produce are for our planet,” Newsom said. “California taxpayers shouldn’t have to foot the bill for billions of dollars in damages — wildfires wiping out entire communities, toxic smoke clogging our air, deadly heat waves, record-breaking droughts parching our wells.”

Everything is Racist

According to the Telegraph from the England:

Stonehenge was built by black Britons, a new children’s history book has claimed.

The illustrated book entitled Brilliant Black British History, by the Nigerian-born British author Atinuke, says “every single British person comes from a migrant” but “the very first Britons were black”.

Readers of the newly-released book are told that Stonehenge was built while Britain was “a black country”.

The book, published by Bloomsbury and promoted by Arts Council-funded literacy charity The Book Trust, states that “Britain was a black country for more than 7,000 years before white people came, and during that time the most famous British monument was built, Stonehenge.”

The introduction says that “Britain has been a mostly white country for a lot less time than it has been a mostly black country”.

Atinuke’s book, for readers aged seven-plus, takes the reader through a chronological overview of black people’s presence in Britain, saying that Cheddar Man, the oldest human remains found in Britain, had skin “as dark as dark can be”.

Stonehenge was built between 3000 BC and 2000 BC. There were no in England in 2000 BC. How do we know this? They were black. It’s science. It’s evolution. The attributes blacks have are congruent with tropical environments. Hot and sunny environments. That’s why their skin is dark and their hair is nappy. As humanity settled north, skin color lightens and hair straightens.

As we get to England and northern Europe, Skin color is white and hair is long, thick and straight. Why? Because there’s less sun and it’s cold.

I repeat, there were no blacks in northern Europe in 2000 BC because they were not built to survive the weather. I didn’t say this. The Left’s darling, Charles Darwin, said this. That’s part of his entire “survival of the fittest” argument.

Episode 786 – Welcome to Bread Lines, Chicago!

Ukraine has some very odd policy choices. I wonder why?

Be prepared to pay a ton for a car. It seems Tesla will be cheaper than the typical Ford compact soon.

And California continues to f- up its state.

Dumbasses of the Day

War? What War?

They are in the middle of a war. Why are they talking about climate change and hiring a trans cultist who isn’t Ukrainian (or even speaks Ukrainian)? Shouldn’t they be worried about their war?

The End of the American Car?

According to the Daily Wire:

The United Auto Workers announced a strike against Ford, General Motors, and Stellantis, as the union demands higher wages and “economic and social justice.”

Around 13,000 auto workers stopped working as picketing began outside a Ford factory in Wayne, Michigan; a GM assembly plant in Wentzville, Missouri; and a Stellantis Jeep plant in Toledo, Ohio. The strike comes after weeks of negotiations between the union and leadership at the automakers. 

What is the union asking for?

  • A 40% raise.
  • Pension based pay raises.
  • Pension benefits for all tiers of worker received equally.
  • To work 32 hours a week but be paid for 40 hours.
  • Just a little FYI, the auto makers offered a 20-25% raise with inflation bumps.
  • All the other crap is nonsense.

This could be the end of the American auto industry or the end of unions. One is going to break.

Speaking of the End of an Industry

California is doing their darndest to nationalize all business.

According to Fox Business:

“The new ‘AB 1228’ legislation has been voted into law and will result in a devastating financial blow to California McDonald’s franchisees at a projected annual cost of $250,000 per McDonald’s restaurant,” the advocacy group representing some 1,000 McDonald’s franchisees said in the memo obtained by FOX Business. 

“These costs simply cannot be absorbed by the current business model.”

CNBC earlier reported on the NOA memo. 

Among the bill’s key components: 

  1. It would raise the minimum wage for fast-food workers to $20 per hour.
  2. It would apply to restaurants with at least 60 locations nationwide, except for restaurants that make and sell their own bread.
  3. It would also create a 10-person council to govern fast-food chains and set guidelines for working conditions and wages.

When signing the original version of the legislation, California Gov. Gavin Newsom said, “California is committed to ensuring that the men and women who have helped build our world-class economy are able to share in the state’s prosperity. Today’s action gives hardworking fast-food workers a stronger voice and seat at the table to set fair wages and critical health and safety standards across the industry.”

I would assume that 10-person council is not going to have restaurant owners on it. This is pure fascism (bordering on communism).

People will point to the fact that it only affects franchises of 60 stores or more nationwide. That just makes the idea worse. Store owners who have 60 stores are, obviously, good with management. States should not be discouraging them to leave the state or not opening more stores in the state. It’s dumb.

This also does not help the economy. There will be more of a push to automate the business, eliminating jobs. It will raise the cost of the Big Mac which is already unreasonably high. This means less customers and more layoffs. Finally, this will close stores. Companies are not going to see the point of opening or maintaining a business if they have to pay $45 an hour to keep employees.

Last, we have forgotten the point of the fast food joint. A monkey can do that job. I know, I did it. This is a job for high school kids, not for adults trying to make ends meet. It’s for someone to gain experience so they can get a real job that pays something. If someone is at McDonald’s and not management. they shouldn’t bitch about not making any money. It is their decisions that are keeping them there and they will never be anything in society until they figure that out.

Speaking of Communism

This is straight from the Soviet, Chinese and Cuba playbook. I told you that all this crap done my democrats is part of the plan. This is part of the plan.

According to the Post Millennial:

Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson has revealed that the city will be partnering with the Economic Security Project to explore the creation of a government-owned grocery store in order to assist “historically underserved communities.”

“All Chicagoans deserve to live near convenient, affordable, healthy grocery options. We know access to grocery stores is already a challenge for many residents, especially on the South and West sides,” said Mayor Brandon Johnson, according to an office press release. “A better, stronger, safer future is one where our youth and our communities have access to the tools and resources they need to thrive. My administration is committed to advancing innovative, whole-of-government approaches to address these inequities. I am proud to work alongside partners to take this step in envisioning what a municipally owned grocery store in Chicago could look like.”

Johnson’s release noted it aims to promote “food equity,” and that estimates from the U.S. Department of Agriculture found that “63.5% of residents in West Englewood and 52% of residents in East Garfield Park live more than half a mile from their nearest grocery store, whereas in West Town less than 1% of residents experience this barrier to food access.”

This initiative, if completed, would mark Chicago becoming the first major US city to launch a government-owned grocery store to deal with “food inequity,” according to the release.

Episode 785 – Sorry, I Just Don’t Care!

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence make asses out of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Like him or not, Kevin McCarthy gots himself some balls and looks to know how to deal with the media.

And do moral standards mean much anymore? After how I reacted to two stories this weekend, I think not.

News

Here is some news:

  • A teenage driver has been arrested after he allegedly used a car to ram into at least one car as well as a cyclist in Las Vegas last weekend. The cyclist succumbed to his injuries and was reported dead after the incident.
    • Andreas Probst, the man who died after being hit, was a retired police chief who had served in law enforcement for 35 years. 
    • They also hit at least one car though I heard they hit two.
    • If you watch the video, this was all intentional. They meant to hit everyone including the biker.
    • Those a-holes should spend the rest of their lives in prison.
  • A member of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, an anti-Christian ‘drag nun‘ group that has been honored by Scott Wiener as well as the Los Angeles Dodgers, was arrested in California’s Humbolt County last month after he was said to have publicly masturbated for an hour.
    • “According to numerous witnesses, Ellis-Gilmore had been at that location for approximately one hour, sitting in his truck with the door open, masturbating,” stated a sheriff’s report on the incident, which occurred at around 6:41 p.m. on August 12. “The conduct does not appear to have been directed at anyone in particular.” 
  • The Peel District School Board (PDSB) decided to eliminate all books published in 2008 or earlier, according to CBC News. 
    • These include The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games and Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry.
    • One student said: “This year, I came into my school library and there are rows and rows of empty shelves with absolutely no books,” Takata told CBC. The student estimates about 50 percent of the library has been removed. 
    • Why? According to the Post Millennial: The blanket censorship is a result of an Ontario Ministry of Education decree on equity that demands all books available to students are inclusive. Apparently, at least one school apparently determined that 2008 was the demarcation line between acceptable, inclusive books and those that do not meet this undefined standard. Weeding by publication date may explain why The Very Hungry Caterpillar is unavailable in a Toronto School, Diane Lawson of Libraries not Landfills was told by a kindergarten teacher.
    • In other words, who knows?
    • Coming to a country near you.

Two Controversies

Loren Boebert

According to Daily Wire:

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) released a statement late this week apologizing for her actions that led to her being thrown out of a “Beetlejuice” musical last weekend.

Denver Arts & Venues said in a statement that they received three different complaints that Boebert and her new boyfriend were “vaping, singing, causing a disturbance.”

She was also wearing a rather risky outfit and was getting felt up by her boyfriend. She ended up getting kicked out of the theater.

Russell Brand

According to Fox News:

Actor and comedian Russell Brand has been accused of the rape and sexual assault of four women. 

Brand, 48, denied the allegations in a video shared to his social media platforms on Friday, as he insisted his relationships have been “consensual.”

The actor said he received several messages from major media companies claiming he was involved in “very serious criminal allegations,” which he described as a “litany of extremely egregious and aggressive attacks,” on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Four women have claimed Brand sexually assaulted them between the years of 2006 and 2013, according to The Sunday Times. 

The allegations come after a joint investigation has been made public by The Sunday Times, The Times and Channel 4 Dispatches. 

He added this was a time during his career when he was working “in the mainstream … As I have written about extensively in my books, I was very, very promiscuous [at that time].”

“Now, during that time of promiscuity, the relationships I had were absolutely always consensual. I was always transparent about that then, almost too transparent, and I am being transparent about it now as well,” Brand continued.

Brand is not exactly a right-wing guy but he has been outspoken about free speech, freedom of religion and Leftism in general. Just last week, he was bitching about something that went vital that would have made conservatives proud. Shockingly, this comes up.

I call bullshit. The most recent accusation is 10 years ago with one almost 20 years ago and none of this came up until he pissed off the Left. Also, the media is all in on this

I also wanted to see the reaction of the news media. They are already calling him guilty. This is all BS.

But This Is Ignored

When conservatives say something, calls for the death penalty can be heard throughout the entire media and social media. But when Joe Biden says things like this, it’s ignored:

Got that? Blacks, Hispanics and veterans don’t have high school diplomas.

Listen, he’s been saying this crap his entire life. The guy has racial problems. Here are a few things he’s said over the last decade:

He’s been saying crap like this for years and no one says anything about it. If you say something the Left hates, they go right after you.

Episode 784 – Our Enemies are Shaking!

Someone lies about a fellow student at the University of Virginia. Instead of getting disciplined, she gets honored because she’s fat and black.

Glen Youngkin, governor of Virginia, finally does something that should have been done ages ago.

And the Biden administration is doing all it can to destroy the military while bitching about not being able to recruit new soldiers.

Dumbass of the Day

They Are There to Hurt You

According to the New York Post:

Beauty giant Dove has partnered with a Black Lives Matter activist to promote “fat liberation,” after she was accused of wrongfully getting a white student expelled from her university over a “misheard” remark.

Zyanha Bryant, a community organizer and student activist studying at the University of Virginia, made the announcement she was a “Dove ambassador” on her Instagram page at the end of August, as she spoke about her goal of ending the stigma of being overweight.

Here’s what she said. See if you can make sense of it:

In other words, I am morbidly obese and am disgusting and you must honor me. Well, this story gets worse.

But even though Bryant has been praised for her work with Black Lives Matter and getting the Robert E. Lee statue taken down in Charlottesville, she has also come under fire in recent months for her efforts to get a white student named Morgan Bettinger suspended from campus.

She claimed Bettinger referred to BLM protesters as “good speed bumps” in the summer of 2020 — only to later admit she may have “misheard” her.

The incident began in July 2020, when Bettinger mistakenly drove down a street where BLM protesters had gathered.

She told Reason magazine she saw a dump truck partially blocking the road, but because the street was not completely blocked off, she continued driving.

When she realized the road was actually being blocked off from traffic, Bettinger said, she decided to park her car and see what was going on.

As she passed by, Bettinger said, the truck driver began talking to her, and the two had a brief conversation.

Bettinger says she remembered telling the truck driver something along the lines of, “It’s a good thing that you are here because otherwise these people would have been speed bumps,” trying to praise his efforts to block traffic.

The driver later corroborated Bettinger’s remark to local cops.

But Bryant overheard part of the conversation and tweeted that she said the protesters “would make ‘good speedbumps’” along with a video showing Bettinger backing down the street in her car while Bryant and several other protesters follow.

“She then called the police and started crying, saying we were attacking her,” Bryant claimed.

The tweet was quickly shared more than a thousand times, and internet sleuths soon identified the driver as Bettinger.

The fact that she had pro-police social media posts, and her late father had worked as a police officer, only seemed to irritate people more, according to the Daily Mail.

Just one day later, Bryant began demanding that school administrators expel Bettinger.

“EMAIL these UVA deans now to demand that Morgan face consequences for her actions and that UVA stop graduating racists,” she tweeted.

Bryant herself filed a complaint with the University Judiciary Committee, a student-run disciplinary system, alleging Bettinger had threatened students’ health and safety.

It found Bettinger guilty of making a legitimate threat against the protesters, despite being unable to prove Bryant’s claims about her intentions.

The jurors ruled that even saying the words in a harmless manner during a protest merited punishment, according to documents obtained by Reason magazine.

Bryant also filed a complaint with the school’s Office for Equal Opportunity and Civil Rights, in which she claimed Bettinger repeated the statement five times and had discriminated against her due to her race.

The EOCR office found that three of the five accusations could not be corroborated, and a report found Bryant most likely did not hear Bettinger’s comments firsthand after no eyewitnesses were able to corroborate her version of events.

Bettinger eventually graduated from UVA but with a permanent mark on her record, Reason reported, likely hindering her chances of getting into law school as she had dreamed.

“This whole situation has had a huge impact on my life,” she told Reason magazine. “The university has never had to answer for what their actions have done.”

Bettinger is said to be considering bringing a lawsuit against school officials, seeking to get her record cleared.

None of what she is claiming is actionable. Even if this woman DID say something, it is not actionable. That’s because she has free speech. But, since she lied to the school and the police, she should be kicked out of school and arrested.

Of course, she won’t be because she’s black and fat. Instead she was profiled in the Washington Post and being named to Ebony’s “Power 100” list last year. Oh, yeah, and she was given a sponsorship by Dove.

It’s OK though. She’s morbidly obese and celebrates it. She will be incapacitated in a couple of years.

About Time

According to the Daily Wire:

Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin on Sunday granted an “absolute pardon” to the father who was arrested at a school board meeting after the superintendent lied about his daughter’s rape by a skirt-wearing boy.

The pardon says that in June 2021, Scott Smith “exercised his constitutional right to attend a public meeting of the Loudoun County School Board to observe the proceedings, during which time a community member threatened to spread false and malicious information about Mr. Smith’s business with the intent to damage his reputation.”

“After an ensuing verbal confrontation, Scott Thomas Smith was charged with Obstruction of Justice and Disorderly Conduct,” and Smith was quickly convicted, even though an appeals court later disqualified the prosecutor due to concerns about “the integrity of the prosecution,” the pardon continues.

WHEREAS Scott Thomas Smith has been publicly and falsely accused of ‘domestic terrorism’ and ‘hate crimes’ for attempting to advocate for his daughter, a victim of sexual assault… I have decided it is just and appropriate to grant this ABSOLUTE PARDON that reflects Scott Thomas Smith’s factual innocence,” it concludes.

Smith’s story galvanized parents who were concerned that schools had sacrificed student safety and academic rigor for ideology. Youngkin’s pledge to be a voice for those parents helped usher him into office a month after The Daily Wire revealed Smith’s story.

What a Shock

According to Fox News:

Claims that “woke” Pentagon policies are fueling a massive U.S. military recruiting crisis are overblown – and the criticisms may only be making things worse, one expert said.

Peter Feaver, a Duke University professor and former member of the National Security Council during the Clinton and Bush administrations, said concerns over so-called “woke” policies have been blown out of proportion by politicians and critics. The main driver of the crisis are issues such as the current labor market and the shrinking pool of young Americans who are qualified to serve, he said.

“Because of drug use, obesity or health concerns, it’s just a smaller pool than it was even two years ago,” Feaver told Fox News Digital. “These are the big drivers.”

Feaver recently released a book titled “Thanks For Your Service,” which takes a deep dive into declining public confidence in the military. At the heart of that issue, Feaver said, is the politicization of the military by both parties. Feaver cited a Gallup poll released In July that showed public confidence in the military at 60%, noting that while that number compares favorably to other U.S. institutions, it represents a worrying trend for the military.

According to the poll, the 60% number has not been this low since 1997 and hasn’t been lower than 60% since 1988, when 58% of respondents expressed confidence in the military. Those lower numbers of the 1980s, which hovered between 50% and 63%, were during a particularly trying time in American foreign policy, Gallup noted, amid the Cold War and high-profile events such as the Iran hostage crisis.

Gallup recorded a number as high as 74% public confidence in the military as recently as 2018, but that number slid sharply in the wake of other high-profile events such as the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan. The drop has been most pronounced among independents, with only 55% expressing confidence in the military in Gallup’s most recent polling – down from 73% as recently as 2019.

“On the margins, that’s going to make recruiting a little more difficult,” Feaver said.

Feaver argued that much of the blame for declining public confidence can be pinned on politics, including claims that the military has become “woke.”

That point seemingly aligns with the stance of Army Secretary Christine Wormuth, who told reporters earlier this year that critics of the military are damaging its image and playing a role in its recruiting woes.

Yeah, wokeness is part of the reason people aren’t joining the military. People join the military to get away from this.

But it gets worse.

According to Fox News:

The White House is threatening to veto House Republican legislation that would give the military’s junior enlisted troops a 30% raise next year.

“If the president were presented with H.R. 4365, he would veto it.,” the White House said in a press release addressing the proposed legislation Monday.

At issue is the Pentagon spending bill advanced by the House Appropriations Committee earlier this year and scheduled to be voted on by the full House this week. 

It includes language that would ensure no member of the military would make less than the equivalent of $15 per hour during a 40-hour work week.

That seems reasonable, right? So why would the White House threaten veto the bill.

But the White House has pushed back against the bill, claiming in that release that its current language includes “partisan policy provisions with devastating consequences, including harming access to reproductive health care, threatening the health and safety of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex (LGBTQI+) Americans, endangering marriage equality, hindering critical climate change initiatives and preventing the administration from promoting diversity, equity and inclusion.”

Do you think this is going to fix the hiring crisis?

Just Wrong

According to the Post Millennial:

YouTube mom Ruby Franke accused her children of being abusers at a court hearing to determine where the children should be sheltered while she faces six charges of felony child abuse. 

According to the Daily Mail, the 41-year-old claimed that one of her children began watching porn at three years old and that one had sexually abused a younger sibling for years, and eventually abused other family members and children in the neighborhood.

She claims that the child confessed in May to abusing 20 different people but was unable to prove any of the allegations. Based on the accusations, the judge said the child “will need to be placed in a home with no other children.” 

At one moment during the hearing, an attorney in the public viewing area stood up and asked the judge to listen to the statement of one of the alleged victims’ mother who was in the courtroom. The judge said the details could be brought up at a later date when she denied the request. 

Ruby Franke’s husband, through his lawyer, informed the press that “He’s been instructed by the court not to comment to the press. Out of respect for the children involved we have no comment.”

Franke is the creator of a YouTube channel called “8 Passengers,” which made her known for her strict parenting style. She was arrested on August 30 for alleged child abuse after police found two juvenile children at her home who “appeared to be emaciated and malnourished with open wounds and duct tape around extremities.” 

The Santa Clara-Ivins Public Safety Department in Washington County, Utah, said it had received a call from a dispatcher of a juvenile asking for food and water. “The conditions were so severe that they were seen by Santa Clara-Ivins EM and transported to a local area hospital,” its statement read.

After she and her business partner Jodi Hildebrandt were arrested, Franke’s family appeared relieved. Her oldest daughter Shari, 20, said on social media, “Today has been a big day. Me and my family are so glad justice is being served.”

Go Get That Jab

According to the New York Post:

A baby boy’s eyes temporarily changed from dark brown to bright blue after receiving a common COVID-19 treatment.

The 6-month-old from Thailand was diagnosed with COVID-19 after suffering from a fever and a cough for a day, as detailed in a case published in the medical journal Frontiers in Pediatrics.

The infant was prescribed favipiravir, the antiviral treatment approved by the Thai Ministry of Public Health in 2022 for children with mild to moderate symptoms.

Shockingly, about 18 hours after beginning the medication, the child’s mother noticed that his dark brown eyes had turned bright blue.

The concerned mother contacted medical professionals and was instructed to stop the treatment immediately.

After about five days, the discoloration faded and the child’s cornea returned to its original color. The infant was examined by doctors, who found the cornea had cleared and lacked a bluish hue, while no blue pigment deposit was noted on the surface of the iris or the anterior lens capsule.

FAFO

According to Breitbart:

R&B singer Akon is hyping his centrally planned community in Senegal, the country of his childhood, promising that every African American who invests with him will become a millionaire. In addition, he says if they collectively leave the U.S. for Africa, they could do real damage to the country that has oppressed them so much.

The 50-year-old artist, whose real name is Aliaune Damala Badara Thiam, was born in St. Louis, Missouri, and spent much of his childhood in Senegal. Consequently, he is a big believer in Africa.

“If you’re coming from America or Europe or elsewhere in the diaspora and you feel that you want to visit Africa, we want Senegal to be your first stop,” Akon said in 2020 of the reported $6 billion project.

The “Angel” singer is so sure about Africa that he has planned the construction of a new city in Senegal. He launched his settlement in 2020 with the cooperation of the country of Senegal with the hopes of creating a high-tech community with an economy based on his “Akoin” cryptocurrency.

Akon — who has been repeatedly accused of mistreating women and in 2008 was seen on video punching a female fan in the face — was recently heard selling his pan-African city idea on a podcast called REVOLT. During the show, the singer claimed that the African continent is the “holy grail” for black Americans because its people need “everything.”

He stated in a podcast:

“Africa is in a position where if African Americans take position now, every single African American would be a millionaire without even thinking twice because there’s nothing that’s not needed over there,” Akon said. “So, you guys come with the discipline, you guys come with the knowledge, you come with the resources.”

“We literally built America with our bare hands. Our labor, our sweat, our blood. But we’ve never — not only did we never get reparations for it, we never even got credit for it. We never even got recognized for it. And I think that’s what builds so much animosity and anger within our community itself, because we know how much our contribution is worth, but we never got our just due for what [sic] the contribution given.

“I mean, you name it. We’re leading in every single sector,” he told the podcast hosts. “Just imagine if we all just decided to just take all our bags, withdrew [sic] all our money, and go to Africa. Where would America be today? It would collapse overnight.”

Episode 783 – Clutching Defeat from the Jaws of Victory

Republicans have started an impeachment inquiry. Leave it to them to f-up a sure victory.

More communism from the weaponized FBI. If people could read today, they’d realize Orwell, Huxley, Solzhenitsyn and Zamyatkin wrote about this 100 years ago.

And, for the love of God, just get out of California!

Dumbass of the Day

Big News

The chickens have come home to roost for Joe Biden and the democrats.

According to the Daily Wire:

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) laid out the evidence against President Joe Biden and accused the president of lying about his family’s foreign business dealings in a Tuesday letter to his colleagues detailing why he had launched an impeachment inquiry. 

McCarthy announced the inquiry after months of investigations by House Republicans, who say they have found evidence of a global influence-peddling scheme to enrich the Biden family. 

“Through our investigations, we have found that President Biden lied to the American people about knowledge of his family’s foreign business dealings,” McCarthy wrote in the letter

The inquiry will be headed up by Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY), Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH), and Ways and Means Chairman Jason Smith (R-MO). 

Democrats have the typical reactions.

  • This is a waste of time.
  • This is a waste of money.
  • There is not evidence.
  • This is a deflection from Trump’s indictments.

Then there is John Fetterman’s response. His was the best and most reasonable:

This is a very risky move. There is a bare majority in the House and there’s no way to pass in the Senate. But an impeachment would be a great thing for the country. Yes, it is revenge for what they did for Trump. But it also has some real benefits. First, it lays out the evidence that is out there against Biden. And there is a lot of it. Witnesses, E-mails, text messages, voice mails and bank records. People are going to wonder where Biden got $20 million (which we already know).

Second, it does put the focus on Joe Biden. Trump needs to get out of the spotlight. We need to make this about Biden. The question is going to be whether the narcissist Trump will let Biden take the spotlight.

But leave it to Republicans to f- it up. There are a bunch of Republicans that are vocally against this, basically clutching defeat from the jaws of victory.

Speaking of Taking Away Rights

We are getting so close to Soviet-style communism in this country, it is scary. The above story is an example. Here’s another one.

According to Fox News:

The FBI returned a Los Angeles woman’s life savings — money she was keeping to buy a house — after seizing it two years earlier with no explanation.

Despite never being charged with a crime, the FBI seized Linda Martin’s safe deposit box during a March 2021 raid through administrative forfeiture, a move that enables federal agencies to seize property without judicial involvement. She went years without explanation, but her $40,200 was returned in July after she filed a nationwide class action lawsuit with the Institute for Justice (IJ) in March 2023.

“I’m relieved to finally have my savings back, but it has been a confusing and frustrating process from the moment it was taken,” Martin said in a statement IJ released in July. 

“I had to prove my innocence to keep my own money,” she added. “No one should be treated that way and I’m going to keep fighting so that others don’t suffer the same way I did.”

So much for, “innocent until proven guilty.”

Martin plans to continue pushing her position in federal court to “end of the FBI’s practice of sending unconstitutional forfeiture notices.” IJ hopes that the case will help others in similar situations across the nation.

She shouldn’t have to do this. It is already against the law to do this. It’s written into the Constitution.

In the statement, IJ accused the FBI of trying to “hurriedly” return the money “to avoid any accountability.”

Martin’s money was taken during a raid of a Beverly Hills-based safe deposit box company, U.S. Private Vaults, which later shut down and pleaded guilty to conspiracy to launder drug money. In total, about $86 million in cash and property in 1,400 customers’ safe deposit boxes were taken. 

The warrant, according to IJ, told agents not to search or seize individual customer’s boxes.

“They were just supposed to identify owners so they could claim their property,” IJ stated. “But the FBI instead acted on its months-old plan to search and try to forfeit the contents of any box worth more than $5,000.”

All this is straight out of Alexander Sholesnetzin book, The Gulag Archipelago. Already our First, Second, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Eighth, Ninth, Tenth, Thirteenth and Fourteenth Amendment rights are being trashed. It is only a matter of time before some President ignores the 22nd Amendment and becomes President for life. That happened in the Soviet Union and China.

Speaking of Stepping on Rights

Speaking of taking right away, here comes California. Anyone who stays in this shithole state and votes for all these people gets what they deserve. California is lost. It isn’t going to recover. We are a tyrannical state.

According to the Daily Wire:

California may soon require judges to look at whether a parent goes along with a child’s “gender identity” during custody disputes, worrying advocates who say parents could lose custody if they don’t agree with a child’s claims to be transgender. 

The Democrat-backed bill, AB 957, passed the State Assembly on Friday and the State Senate on Thursday. If signed by California Governor Gavin Newsom, the bill would require judges to consider whether a parent “affirms” a child’s “gender identity” among other factors during custody battles. 

According to the bill, “the health, safety, and welfare of the child includes, among other comprehensive factors, a parent’s affirmation of the child’s gender identity or gender expression. Affirmation includes a range of actions and will be unique for each child, but in every case must promote the child’s overall health and well-being.”

You can raise your kids as long as you raise them in adherence to the state. If the state believes in a lie, we all must believe in the lie.

Remember, 2+2=5. If you believe it equals four, you will be re-educated (tortured) until you believe it equals five. I think I read that someplace.

Here is state rep and writer of AB957, Lori Wilson. She is better than you, is smarter than you, and mother of a trans boy. That proves she’s better than you. She talks about why you need to do what she did:

If my child wants to run across the 10 freeway, should I affirm that?

Actually, our job as parents is not to affirm what our kids think. It is to teach them about the realities of life. To teach our children the truth so they grow up balanced and productive so they can live fulfilling lives. Affirming everything your kid thinks is easy but that kid will not grow up with reality.

Is it a wonder that 40% of trans kids end up killing themselves?

Now She’s a Victim

I wasn’t going to talk about this but now it has gotten too stupid to ignore.

According the New York Post:

Democratic Virginia House of Delegates candidate Susanna Gibson blasted her opponents for engaging in “the worst gutter politics” after videos surfaced of her and her husband performing sex acts online for cash.

Gibson, a 40-year-old mother of two who is running in a hotly contested race to represent the state’s District 57, hosted several live webcam shows on the adult streaming website Chaturbate, the Washington Post revealed in a bombshell report Monday.

The nurse practitioner has since railed against her political opponents, accusing them of engaging in dirty politics.

She called the controversy “an illegal invasion of my privacy designed to humiliate me.”

“My political opponents and their Republican allies have proven they’re willing to commit a sex crime to attack me and my family because there’s no line they won’t cross to silence women when they speak up,” Gibson told CNN in a statement on Tuesday.

She is having sex on camera. She is asking people what they want to see. She is watching men jerk off while she is having sex. She is asking them for more money. Now, she is a victim?
