Episode 539 – They Are Learning Their Lesson

It looks like some of those woke corporations are learning their lessons.

Kids can now get in trouble for using proper English.

And everything is racist.

 

Not a Good First Day

The new White House Press Secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, had her first solo press conference since Jen Psaki left. It was a rough one. But her introduction made clear that she’s proud of herself being the first black, gay and immigrant press secretary.

OK, yay! But is she going to be a good press secretary? Well, we got some answers thanks to that racist Peter Doocy from the racist news network Fox News.

Considering Jean-Pierre has called Fox News racist, you know Peter Doocy isn’t going to get any softball questions on her first day. Here he’s asking her about how raising taxes on corporations is going to lower inflation:

Comforting to know that she has no way of knowing what the President is saying on Twitter. The “what specific tweet” thing is a deflection to get her more time to think of an answer.

Then she comes up with a word salad that doesn’t answer the question. Doocy is having none of it.

She’s actually reading the answer for this question. That’s why she fumbling for words. By the way. I can condense the 300 words she used not to answer the question to 2 words: climate change.

But Doocy wasn’t finished with her. Here he is asking her why Joe Biden didn’t go to Waukesha during the black supremacist attack in a Christmas parade but he is going to Buffalo to address the white supremacist attack.

But why didn’t he go to Waukesha? No answer.

Yeah, the press conference didn’t go well. Maybe Biden shouldn’t have hired someone because she was black, gay and an immigrant and should have hired someone who was competent.

They Got the Message

The bid entertainment companies might be getting the message after the Disney debacle. Well, wait a minute. In this case, it involves Netflix and their stock has tanked in the last year, so maybe the 500,000 subscribers that gave up their subscriptions had something to do with it.

Variety reports:

Netflix loves to tout its culture of avoiding rules and minimizing corporate red tape. But of course, the company does have operating guidelines, famously detailed in the Netflix Culture document posted on its website. Co-founder Reed Hastings even wrote a 2020 book elaborating on the principles, titled “No Rules Rules: Netflix and the Culture of Reinvention.”

Now Netflix is publishing an update to its corporate culture memo for the first time in nearly five years, a copy of which Variety obtained exclusively ahead of its release Thursday. The last major update was in 2017, when it distilled Hastings’ original 125-slide presentation from 2009 (which has been viewed more than 21 million times).

How woke of them.

The core principles of the Netflix Culture memo, including empowering employee decision-making, requiring candid feedback and terminating staffers who aren’t up to “dream team” snuff, remain intact. But there are some key changes. For starters, the document has a new title: “Netflix Culture — Seeking Excellence” (previously it was simply called “Netflix Culture”).

More significantly, the document adds a new directive for employees to act with fiscal responsibility — a change that comes as Netflix in Q1 saw its first decline in subscribers in more than a decade. The updated Netflix Culture memo also includes a new section called “Artistic Expression,” explaining that the streamer will not “censor specific artists or voices” even if employees consider the content “harmful,” and bluntly states, “If you’d find it hard to support our content breadth, Netflix may not be the best place for you.”

This is a big deal. Don’t forget, this a streaming platform that has Susan Rice on the board and gave a multi-million dollar contract to the Obamas. They are also making a series about a “pregnant man”.

But woke politics has killed them. They’ve lost tons of subscribers and their stock is tanking (over 40%). What’s worse, people have options. I dropped Netflix and haven’t missed it.

That’s what is great about this. It shows that the people and the market have the ultimate power. It also shows that stakeholder capitalism isn’t what’s going to keep a company successful. It’s shareholder capitalism. The shareholders, who invest in Netflix, are the ones who hold the power over the company. In other words, money talks and BS walks.

I can’t wait to see what is going to happen to Disney. They are getting the same crap.

They Actually Used the Right Pronouns

According to Fox News:

Three Wisconsin boys are facing sexual harassment charges from their middle school over accusations that they used incorrect gender pronouns on a fellow student.

Yep, that’s a thing right now.

The mother of one of the kids, Rosemary Rabidoux, said:

“I received a phone call from the principal over at the elementary school, forewarning me; letting me know that I was going to be receiving an email with sexual harassment allegations against my son. I immediately went into shock. I’m thinking, sexual harassment? That’s rape, that’s inappropriate touching, that’s incest. What has my son done?”

But it wasn’t any of that. By the way, the kid is a straight A student and an introvert. I saw him on television and he looks like a typical nerd. Also, what Rabidoux described is what Title IX defines of harassment. This school is trying to cancel these kids at the age of 13 because they didn’t use some kid’s pronouns that he defined a month before.

Brad Ebert, the school district’s superintendent, told ABC 2 News:

“The KASD prohibits all forms of bullying and harassment in accordance with all laws, including Title IX, and will continue to support ALL students regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, creed, pregnancy, marital status, parental status, sexual orientation, sex (including transgender status, change of sex or gender identity), or physical, mental, emotional or learning disability (“Protected Classes”) in any of its student programs and activities; this is consistent with school board policy. We do not comment on any student matters.”

Here’s the problem with this statement: They weren’t bullying anyone. They just used the proper pronouns for this kid.

That’s another thing. This kid’s pronoun were “they” and “them”. Those are plural pronouns that do not describe an individual. These kids are being condemned for using correct English. Think of that. You still think homeschooling is a bad idea?

https://www.foxnews.com/us/middle-schoolers-sexual-harassment-gender-pronouns

 

Well, It Is a Bad Idea

Wait, before you homeschool your kids, you must understand that homeschooling is racist (what a great transition, huh?)

MSNBC released an op-ed that says that homeschooling is racist. It is called How the Conservative Christian Right is Hijacking Homeschooling by Anthea Butler.

Let’s go through it:

“Public education has become public enemy No. 1,” the actor Kirk Cameron opines in a promotion for “The Homeschool Awakening,” his documentary scheduled to hit theaters in June. The documentary, funded by the Trinity Broadcasting Network and Cameron’s own Camfam Studios, argues that parents should be homeschooling their children in the wake of the pandemic. However, as Cameron’s quote indicates, this latest project of conservative evangelical education is another salvo in the ongoing evangelical war against public schools.

Pay attention to the language. Notice that she talks about the “attack” on public schools? This opening paragraph, to be a real work of journalism, should also talk about this conflict being fought from both sides.

It should come as no surprise that evangelicals, fundamentalists and other religious conservatives have fought against public education since the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1954 decision in Brown v. Board of Education. The prospect of integrated schools led to the creation of many “segregation academies,” private schools designed to keep African American children and undesirable immigrant groups away from white children. But there was another, more insidious way to circumvent integration: homeschooling.

That’s right, religious conservatives are racist!

By the way, who fought against the ruling and want to continue Jim Crow laws? That’s right, southern Democrats. Joe Biden worked with a bunch of them.

One of the main purveyors of homeschooling was a fundamentalist, Rousas Rushdoony, whose work beginning in the 1960s in establishing Christian day schools grew into the homeschooling movement. He saw homeschooling as a way to cut the government out of educating Christian children and to prepare them to take their place in a theocratic government. Julie Ingersoll, author of “Building God’s Kingdom: Inside the World of Christian Reconstruction,” says Rushdoony “was one of the intellectual godfathers of the Religious Right, but he is often treated like a crazy uncle.”

Crazy or not, homeschooling materials inspired by Rushdoony’s theology are on sale today to parents who homeschool in America, and many of those materials reached parents during the pandemic. Cameron’s documentary promoting homeschooling is not an aberration; it is part of a larger project about dismantling the public education system in the United States.

Wow, what a conspiracy! Christian children should learn about Christianity in their education instead of getting the secular garbage that they get in public school.

I know they hate that Rushdoony’s haven’t been banned and this gets Leftists very upset. Maybe if Rushdoony but reference the male girls and dildos, it would be more acceptable to the Left. books like that are in public libraries and are part of the curriculum.

This dismantling has taken shape over the years in various ways: in segregation academies, in school vouchers, in attempts to dismantle the U.S. Department of Education and even with former President Donald Trump’s appointment of Betsy DeVos to lead that department. Now that her time in government is done, DeVos is speaking at homeschooling conventions, to promote homeschooling and to disparage critical race theory and other “detriments to education.”

School vouchers? Don’t those allow parents to choose what school their kids can go to. Doesn’t that give parents a choice and control the directions of their children’s education? Isn’t the freedom to choose by parents a good thing? Not to the teacher’s unions.

And I thought the schools weren’t teaching critical race theory? Have the public schools been lying to us?

Cameron’s documentary furthers the long-term goal of America’s religious conservatives to dismantle the public school system by promoting homeschooling, an idea that grew in popularity during the pandemic among parents who wanted to make sure their children kept up academically and avoided the coronavirus. According to a report from the U.S. Census Bureau in the fall of 2020, 11.1 percent of parents said their children were homeschooled, compared to 5.4 percent that spring.

Some of that increase may be attributed to Black parents and other diverse groups who are now finding homeschooling as an attractive alternative. Yet some parents have expressed frustration with conservative Christian materials for homeschooling, which drive the current marketplace. And other professional educators have issued dire warnings about homeschooling, including issues regarding a lack of oversight and the increased potential for child abuse.

Here’s the thing, I want to dismantle the school system too. I want the system to become far more privatized and funded by communities. I don’t want government running schools because the government sucks at everything and they have a tendency to teach children what they want children to know (indoctrination). I want parents and communities to control education. But this is not what Cameron’s documentary does. He’s just showing the problems and secularism in the schools and encourages parents to go in a different direction.

The second thing I want to point out is the doubling of children being homeschooled. She does not mention why. Could it be because their kids have been stuck at home for two years and the teachers never want to go back to school? Because it looks like the schools look like they don’t care about their kids? Could it be that the parents have seen what their kids are being taught and not taught and decided they could do it better?

Notice she just skips over the fact that blacks are also leaving the school system?

Cameron’s homeschooling documentary comes at a time of contentious debate about critical race theory, LGBTQ issues, transgender children and Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” law. Like the documentary itself, those new laws are designed to weaken already debilitated public school systems that are dealing with limited funding, staffing and violence issues. Attempts by religious conservatives to prohibit certain subjects deemed dangerous or inappropriate are not new, but they are now coming in multiple waves across the country.

Why is there debate about all this? I thought the schools weren’t teaching any critical race theory, gender theory and weren’t trans-ing the kids? That’s what we’ve been told.

Could it be that they are teaching this crap and parents don’t want this?

By the way, it’s called the Parental Rights in Education bill.

Homeschooling may have greater appeal now because of these debates and the desire for parents to play a big part in their children’s educational life. It may also arise out of pandemic concerns, but parents unfamiliar with the existing networks of homeschooling run the danger of being drawn into Christian conservative networks and theocratic teaching. Cameron’s says that people choosing homeschooling are having an awakening, but the public needs to awaken to the reality that public schools may disappear if people with his extreme beliefs have their way.

Some things about this article:

  • It does nothing but condemns the religious right and does not defend the public schools at all.
  • The article implies racism but doesn’t explain why black parents are homeschooling their kids.
  • It doesn’t bring up any of the debate points like what is wrong with Critical Race Theory or Critical Gender Theory.
  • It assumes the kids are actually learning what is important in public schools and doesn’t present stats that would prove it.
  • It doesn’t mention any of the benefits of homeschooling.
  • It doesn’t mention any of the negatives of standardized school. They waste a lot of time.
  • She assumes that homeschooling requires religious education. It doesn’t.
  • Finally, it demonizes religion.

Public schools are not about teaching math and reading anymore. They are about indoctrinating kids into some of the most perverse philosophies on planet Earth. Philosophies that not only pervert the kids but are made to destroy the nuclear family. Need proof? Just subscribe to Libs of TikTok and look at what teacher are actually telling you on social media.

Parents are getting it that’s why homeschooling has doubled in the last two years and 1 in 10 kids are being homeschooled now. As time goes by, I expect that this is going to go up.

Episode 538 – This Really Is a Problem

Another tragic shooting by another racist in Buffalo that is going to be promoted by the media finally. This one fits their narrative.

And let’s talk about the baby formula crisis.

 

Today’s Kamalaism

This one is awesome!

This is becoming a cliché but she’s like the kid that has 200 hundred in an essay that requires 500 words.

OK, to the news.

 

What is the Real Tragedy?

There was a mass shooting n Buffalo, New York on Saturday.

  • An 18 year old man walked into a grocery store and shot 13 people, killing 10.
  • 11 of the people shot were black.
  • He was dressed in full tactical gear including a helmet and was carrying a semiautomatic rifle.
  • The shooter live streamed the shooting on Twitch.
    • When Twitch discovered the shooting, they pulled it down.
    • Twitch said the live stream ended after two minutes.
    • It is unclear if the live stream had any of the shooting.
  • The shooter posted a 180-page manifesto with anti-Semitic and racist rants.
    • The manifesto was posted in a Q&A format like the Christchurch shooter.
    • He was radicalized online while bored from being locked up during the pandemic.
    • He did not meet with anyone or did not belong to any group.
    • He stated that he hated that the white race was being filtered out through mixed relationships and it had to stop.
    • The police think it is authentic but are still investigating.
  • He has been planning the attack since January.
  • He picked the spot because it had the highest black population based on the zip code.
  • He was going to walk through the neighborhood streets, continuing the attack but broke it off.
  •  He was arrested and faced first degree murder charges.
  • He is facing life in prison.

It did not take long before this was politicized. This things follows three narratives that the media loves:

  • The country is racist and filled with white supremacists.
    • The idea is all these mass killing are all by white supremacists.
    • CNN released an article showing five mass killings were by white supremacists.
      • One was from 2012.
      • They failed to mention the mass shooting of the Brooklyn subway that was done by a black supremacists.
      • They failed to mention the mass shooting by the Black Hebrew Israelites supporter (a black supremacist group) against the people within a Jewish store.
      • They failed to mention the mask killings of the Waukesha black supremacist.
      • They failed to mention that the biggest mass shootings of the year were by black gang members.
  • All Republicans are racist and supported the shooter.
  • The need for gun control.
  • And how bad social media is.

There are some things the media won’t talk too much about:

  • He was radicalized while alone,  on the Internet, during the lockdowns. He should have been in school.
  • Last year,  he was investigated for saying he wanted to commit a mass shooting. Nothing was done. Another example how the system failed.
  • On his rifle were the names of the Waukesha victims. This victims were killed by a black supremacist. This will be the Civil War people keep talking about.

You know what’s really sad? The first thing I think about is, “I hope this guy isn’t white.” I am relieved when I find out the shooter is a person of color and then I can concentrate on the tragedy.

https://nypost.com/2022/05/15/biden-calls-buffalo-supermarket-shooting-act-of-domestic-terrorism/

 

This is a Real Problem

I went to a target and decided to cruise down the baby formula aisle to see how bad the situation is. Guess what? It’s bad. The aisle was empty.

The Biden administration said they knew about this issue back in February. That begs the question: What have you guys been doing about it? Needless to say, they did not have an answer. When asked about what parents should do if they cannot find any formula, Jenn Psaki had a great answer:

Um, OK.

She then blamed hoarding by parents (of course):

They have no answer. They are doing what they have always done. They are reacting to problems instead of preventing little problems become big problems.

But do you know who is not having issues getting baby formula? Illegal aliens.

A whistleblower released a photo of pallets of baby formula being sent to the border for illegal aliens. The administration doesn’t deny this is happening.

Washington Post fact checker, Glen Kessler said that illegal aliens getting priority for baby formula over Americans is “faux outrage”:

“This is a ridiculous faux outrage. The shortage of baby formula is a serious issue that the administration is seeking to address. But at the same time, the administration cannot be faulted for following the law and providing baby formula to undocumented immigrants.”

Then he sited the 1997 Flores Settlement, which details how border facilities must meet the basic needs of detained illegal immigrant minors, including providing age-appropriate food and drink.

Couple of things here. First, he’s not saying that there is not a formula shortage. He just says that we, as Americans, have no right to be upset that our government is giving criminals formula for their babies when citizens can’t find formula for our babies. Second, this guy must not have any kids and must hate Americans as much as the Biden administration. Can imagine the gall of saying such a thing?

Speaking of gall, there Bette Midler. Bette Midler had a great answer for all those parents that are worried that their kids might starve. She tweeted:

“TRY BREASTFEEEDING! It’s free and available on demand.”

Mind you, Bette only has one kid and  I’m pretty sure she used formula because an elitist like that wouldn’t want to be inconvenienced. Not to mention, as a woman, you’d think she’d know that not all women can breast feed.

Aren’t those Leftist a sensitive, empathetic bunch?

 

Here’s the Story

There are a bunch of reasons why we are having this shortage. Most incline government incompetence.

  • Baby formula production is down by 43%.
  • There are only four formula manufacturers.  Government regulations make budding producers think twice.
  • One manufacturer,  Abbott, had a plant shut down in February because of a bacteria outbreak. Abbott said they had no signs of the bacteria. The FDA shut down the plant anyway.
  • There were four kids sickened and one died. The FDA did not  investigate the parents on how they gave or handled the formula. They just shut down the factory.
  • Europe has a glut of formula, but regulations,  mostly concerning labeling,  and  a 17% tariff are stopping us from importing it.
  • Hell, Mexico has a lot of formula but it’s illegal to bring it into the country.

I believe the Biden administration did know about this months ago. I also believe the Biden administration doesn’t want to be involved in a lot of starving babies. Yes, I don’t think they care much. But I also think they can’t handle this.

Everything this administration does has proven to be wrong. I don’t think this is on purpose. They’re just really bad at this. I’ll go a step further, government is bad at this. Bureaucracy is bad at this. The Founding Fathers knew this. That’s why the Constitution was written the way it was. And they feared what is happening now would happen.

The Biden administration does not prevent, they react. They don’t know how to prevent. This administration is in such a mess, all they can do is react because there is too much to prevent. Afghanistan is the main example. What they can’t fix, they just lie and deny.

This administration is stuck in their ideology. The Great Reset. The environment. Their base. They focus on that no matter what happens to some of the little people. Remember, for the Greater Good. This is why soaring gas prices, inflation, food shortages is seen as a good thing. It is part of bringing on the Greater Good.

Finally, there is an elite class. That class all believes the same thing. It’s not all about money in that class. If it was, Elon Musk would be embraced right now.

Episode 534 – Happy Mother’s Day!

The pro-abortion Left is going nuts and the violence begins.

And, since it’s Mother’s Day, the Washington Post releases an opinion piece teaching us what not to do as a mother.

 

 

The Temper Tantrums Continue

We know that Leftists can’t control themselves when they don’t get their way. So what’s the best way to get their point across? How about protesting at Catholic churches on Mother’s Day (which they hate because…well…mothers are awesome) and the homes Supreme Court justices?

This weekend, a groups known as Ruth Sent Us organized a walkthrough protest of the homes on=f the Supreme Court justices. This included them posting the home addresses of the Conservative justices: Clarence Thomas, Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanagh (they hate anyway), Neil Gorsuch and John Roberts. These were called “walkthrough protests” which means these protests were meant to be peaceful. Security for the justices was increased and so far there has been no violence.

The other thing they decided to do was protest the Catholic church. These morons entered a church in New York, dressed in Handmaid’s Tale outfits and started singing about killing babies. The group is encouraging pro-abortion Catholics and Evangelicals (that’s an oxymoron) to disrupt services. I’ll have to point out Islamist mosques and Jewish temples are not being protested. Last I heard, those group are just as anti-abortion as Christians. Can we finally admit anti Christian hate?

I will have to create a video of the various protests. A bunch of people are pointing out that these tantrums are not helping their cause. The black guys dressed in drag with newspaper shoved in his shirt to simulate him being pregnant, dancing around in front of a church isn’t a good look.

In a show of what can only be called hate, a Christian posted a requests to pray with activists from Ruth Sent Us. They replied with:

“Stuff your rosaries and your weaponized prayer. We will remain outraged after this weekend, so keep praying. We’ll be burning the Eucharist to show our disgust for the abuse Catholic Churches have condoned for centuries.”

“Weaponized prayer”? This is nothing more than hate. And just to show you how out clueless this group is, Ruth Bader Ginsberg herself said that Roe versus Wade was a bad ruling and abortion needed to be codified by law.

These are hateful, terrible people. Need more proof? Listen to this activist at one of the protests.

I’ll give her credit, she’s not hiding the ball. They know exactly what abortion is and just don’t care. There is no middle ground.

 

President Biden

Jen Psaki was asked several times about the leaked documents and the protests at the homes of the doxed Supreme Court justices. She answered in the same:

Interesting. She says abortion has been a fundamental right for 50 years. Can we assume it hasn’t been a fundamental right for the last 250 years? Can we assume, by her statement, the Biden administration knows abortion is not in the Constitution? If it is not, can we assume Roe versus Wade is unconstitutional?

The answer is yes on all questions.

The Biden administration just doesn’t care because they go along with the extremists. How much do they go along with the extremists? Leave it to Peter Doocy of Fox News to pull the answer from Jen Psaki:

The most unifying President in United States history, huh.

By the way, Joe Biden also said Roe versus Wade was not a great ruling and needed to be codified by law.

Democrats really think this is the platform to run on. They think this will make us forget about the economy, the open borders, CRT and CGT in schools, Afghanistan and his other foreign policy disasters. Democrats also assume most of the country is into radical abortion values.

I don’t want to hear any more whining and crying about January 6th. What the radical Left believes is so much worse, so much more violent, so much more frequent and so much more disgraceful.

 

I Don’t Think They’re Aware of Anything

The Washington D.C. Metro police released a statement stating the understood the concerns about the First Amendment conflict:

“MPD is aware of potential disruptions associated with First Amendment demonstrations. MPD will be monitoring, assessing and planning accordingly with our local and federal partners. We have increased available resources, including the activation of our Civil Disturbance Units, in preparation for these activities.”

Of course, anyone with half a mind would ask, “What does that mean?” They were asked about that and there was no reply.

Here’s the thing: A right is a right if it does not impede on the rights of others.

If these protestors are protesting outside a church without impeding or threatening the congregants, fine. It’s tacky, cheap, misdirected and, as we’ll see, counter productive, but it’s their right.

But if they impede the congregants (which is a crime) or they walk into the church to disrupt the service (which is also a crime), they have impeded the rights of others and can’t scream First Amendment anymore.

The problem I see is the police seem to weigh the First Amendment right of the protestors with more weight than the First Amendment rights of the churchgoers. This is what happens when one group demonizes and other group. They are see as less human and less deserving. They shouldn’t have rights.

All This for Nothing

These protests are threatening and silly but so far they haven’t been violent. Don’t count on that lasting much longer. But, one thing I asked myself, was what is their point? They are not changing anyone’s mind. I fact, it appears to be doing the opposite effect.

According to the Washington Post The five justices who want to overturn Roe still want it overturned. Chief Justice John Roberts (probably one of the worst chief justices in history) is trying to convince Barrett and Kavanaugh to accept a more incremental ruling to putting limits on abortion (which, so far isn’t working). This is probably why the opinion hasn’t been released early.

Clarence Thomas also said that the court wasn’t going to be manipulated by public opinion. He said at a judicial conference on Friday:

“We are becoming addicted to wanting particular outcomes, not living with the outcomes we don’t like. We can’t be an institution that can be bullied into giving you just the outcomes you want. The events from earlier this week are a symptom of that.”

This is what the leaker and the unhinged protestors don’t get. This is probably going to have the opposite affect.

  • First, if the Supreme Court changes its mind, the mob will win and we can expect more leaks like this in the future because it will have worked.
  • Second, this will be seen as the most cowardly Supreme Court in history. None of them are going to want that. By the way, Chief Justice Roberts is the epitome of a coward.
  • Third, the Conservative justices know this will end the Founding Fathers vision of the Supreme Court. It will just become another political branch of the government. For all intents and purposes, this will end respect for the Constitution and we might as well just elect judges.
  • Finally, Justice Alito’s opinion was on mark. Anybody who knows Roe versus Wade knows it.

Isn’t Being a Parent Hard Enough?

On Mother’s Day, there is nothing like releasing an op-ed trashing boys and showing the world how to be a bad mother. Leave it to the Washington Post to bring this to light. In a n article called Raising a Feminist Son Seems Easy. A Daughter? Much Trickier. by Kate Cohen.

This article is interesting because this is exactly how not to raise kids.

When I was a young mother, I was certain my husband and I could raise our two boys to be feminists. We took all the necessary steps. They got a clunky but equitable surname and painted toenails upon request.

They also got a male role model with traditionally “masculine” jobs (farmer, builder) but also plenty of stereotypically “feminine” traits. He bonded with babies, treasured his female friends and wept through the opening sequence of “Up.” For my part, I could teach them to cook, write thank-you notes and not be grossed out by menstruation.

My God:

  • This article is already annoying as hell.
  • The woman is a narcissist. She “I” four times in five sentences and when she said “we” she might as well said “I”.
  • What kind of father is this? I would never let my son be emasculated by his mother like this?
  • I saw “Up” and I cried in the beginning too. Guess what, I can cry when I see something sad and still be masculine.
  • I know women who are grossed out about mensuration.
  • Finally, when did cooking, cleaning and washing clothes become feminine jobs. Guess what? You need to be able to that stuff to become an adult. Mommy didn’t come over to my apartment and clean up after me. I had to do it myself. I learned to sew in the army.

Continuing:

Picture me whistling down the road with a double stroller, confident that we could bring up fair-minded and whole human beings.

Now picture me stopping in my tracks when I learned that our third child would be … a girl.

What would she learn from my example? That women do the cooking and write the thank-you notes? That mothers put their families first? Sure, my husband did that, too, but when he did it, it was progress; when I did it, it was the 1950s all over again.

Even worse: As a feminist, I was good on theory but mediocre in practice. I shied from conflict, craved approval and reflexively deferred to male authority. I knew that trying to get thinner to conform to patriarchal beauty standards was a betrayal both of my intrinsic self-worth and of women everywhere, and yet every day, I tried anyway. Every single day.

Some things:

  • The reason this is such a tough thing for this woman is she’s so busy trying feminize all the men in her life, she doesn’t know how to feminize a girl.
  • Then, all the insecurities hit her. Everything she was teaching the boys was the stereotypical female she didn’t think a feminist should be like.
  • Then she goes off on her own insecurities and blames the patriarchy.
  • Maybe she should stop trying to silo men and women and realize both men and women have strengths and weakness that are different. If she would just let everyone in the family evolve naturally, they’d probably all be happy and well-adjusted.

Continuing:

What if my daughter grew up to be like me? (Insecure, confused and unhappy)

I was on guard from the moment she was born. No Barbie dolls shall breach this perimeter! But as soon as she went to preschool, princesses and teen pop stars entered her consciousness and worked their Disney magic. At age 3, she would wear only dresses and announced, to her brothers’ consternation, that pink was a “girl color.”

I couldn’t control her taste, I thought, but I could control myself. I made sure to praise her brains and not her looks. I refrained from counting calories in her presence. And I stopped hugging her without permission.

Why is she trying to control anything?

Even the author has the same feminine wiles that this little girl has. She just tries to hide and suppress them. This is the problem with radical feminism. It tries to make a person who they are not. It tries to make men and women the same. It tries to feminize men a de-feminize women. It’s completely illogical.

Men and women are wired differently. We don’t understand each other. A husband and wife in a happy marriage will spend our lifetimes trying to figure each other out. This broad is such a narcissist, she thinks she knows what’s wrong with the boys and thinks she’s going to fix them.

Well, good luck with that. Her sons are going to grow up to hate her and her husband is going to remain distant.

That last one took me longer than I like to admit. She was 12, and the #MeToo movement was pointing out just how casually and commonly girls had their bodily autonomy taken from them. I realized how often I had made her kiss this or that relative whether she wanted to or not, ignoring her reluctance in the name of politeness.

Just a little FYI on the #MeToo movement, a lot of women were lying or exaggerating. Hell, I’ll go in with the leap that most women were lying or exaggerating. The Johnny Depp/Amber Heard trial is showing us that.

I began to ask for permission before hugging her. When she said no, I felt a kind of woeful joy. As a girl, I had not fully believed I had a right to my own body; maybe, as a woman, I still didn’t. But she did.

This is an emotionally lost woman. She’s happy when her daughter doesn’t want to hug her?

So when she started wearing makeup and asked for a razor to shave her legs, I was conflicted. Clearly, she was under the sway of the patriarchal beauty standards I so desperately wanted her to defy. But just as clearly, she was defying us.

Growing up, I had done the opposite: declined to wear mascara or shave my legs or even pierce my ears, not for myself but because I didn’t want to disappoint my left-wing father. That’s right: I totally stuck it to the patriarchy to please a male authority figure.

That explains a lot.

Needless to say, I bought my daughter the damn razor. Who was I to lecture her?

Isn’t that what she’s doing to her sons?

I had the same feeling when she fought with her dad, which she did often as a young teen: heated skirmishes between two strong-willed people whose politics were close enough to clash. Visiting her afterward in her room — no, she did not want a hug — I was tempted to suggest that she yell less and placate more. Be more like me, in other words.

I can tell you, right now, dad is not strong willed if he’s letting this harpy treat his sons like she is. Also I hardly doubt this broad placates to anyone.

By the way, who was right in these arguments. Was it the 10-year-old girl or was it the father. Bet you know who this gal thinks was right.

What’s worse, she’s being taught not to respect her father. Is their any man in the future this kid is going to respect? That’s going to make a lonely woman because a real man isn’t going to put up with that.

But I didn’t. I was astonished that she could make a smart, passionate argument and stand her ground. The least I could do was refrain from chastising her for it.

Well, there’s the answer. The daughter would have been right no matter what.

Her stance on makeup has since shifted, but her sense of self-possession hasn’t budged. The other day, while she was arguing with her father, her brother sat beside her heckling nonstop. Annoyed, she paused midsentence and turned to him. “I get that you like to make fun of me,” she said, “but wait until I’ve finished what I’m saying and then make fun of me.” He shut up. And she turned back to her father to finish making her point.

I don’t think that was a real clever response.

I pictured her then with a sword in each hand, parrying with her left while advancing with her right. She definitely didn’t learn that from her mother. But I hope I have modeled one lesson for my daughter: It’s never too late to do better.

Maybe one day I’ll grow up to be like her.

I am going to play Nostradamus.

  • Half of what she is saying isn’t happening.
  • If it is:
    • Her husband will stay with her because no other woman will have him. Women actually like masculine men.
    • Her sons will grow up emasculated, insecure, alone and making nothing of themselves. They will meet some chick at a feminist rally, wearing pussy hats. Get married and be emasculated for the rest of their lives. Just like mommy did. Money says one will end up being a serial killer.
    • The daughter will become an overbearing, narcissistic bitch and probably will end up alone like most feminists.

This Kate Cohen has it all wrong and I guarantee you she’s a miserable person. Kids do not need to be molded. They need to be led and nurtured. She does not do any of this. Kids need to grow and learn on their own. They need to drawn down the path to treat all respect.

Episode 537 – You Paid What for What?

The Senate voted on an extreme version of abortion. It didn’t go well.

Lori Lightfoot is ready to go to war over abortion but no one is sure what she’s going to fight with.

And Madonna hasn’t accepted that she’s not hot anymore.

 

Dems Are Going All In

The Democrats are going all in on this abortion thing. They’ve decided, for some reason, this is the thing to run on.

Chuck Schumer decided to put a radical abortion bill to a vote on the Senate floor.

A Democrat-sponsored bill that would have legalized abortion through all nine months of pregnancy failed in the Senate on Wednesday by a vote of 51-49.

The bill is known as the Women’s Health Protection Act passed the House in September and would have allowed abortion up to birth. It was not a codifying Roe versus Wade. Not one Republican voted for it and Democrat Joe Manchin voted against it.

Some things about this:

  • What was this suppose to accomplish?
    • This was a radical bill that went beyond Roe versus Wade.
    • It shows Democrats actually want to kill viable babies.
    • There was no way it was going to pass so it is a loss for the Democrats.
  • Most people do not support this type of radical abortion laws.
  • There is now screaming about the filibuster, especially from Elizabeth Warren. They didn’t even get 50 votes. The filibuster did not come into play.

Just dumb. It shows that the Democrats are a mess.

This Is Just Not Right

This is just a sad story and has a special place in my heart.

According to the Daily Wire:

Data from the CDC’s National Vital Statistics System for the year 2021 predicted that 107,622 Americans have died from drug overdoses. The data is not final, and could be under-reported because the data is not complete, but it would mark the largest number of Americans who have died from drug overdoses on record in a single year, and an increase of about 15% from 2020, when 93,655 people died from overdoses. Overdose deaths have also increased by about 50% since 2019 when around 72,000 people died of drug overdoses.

  • California led the nation in total overdose deaths, with 11,704 predicted deaths for the year 2021.
  • Florida came in second, with 8,171 predicted deaths.
  • Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Texas all suffered more than 5,000 predicted deaths.ww.dailywire.com/news/record-number-of-americans-died-from-drug-overdoses-in-2021-cdc-data-show
  • California also led the nation in year-over-year increases, with about 2,100 more deaths in 2021 than in 2020.
  •  In terms of largest year-over-year percentage change, Alaska led the nation with a 75% increase over 2020.

People are blaming the pandemic for the increase in drug overdose deaths.

Maritza Perez, director of national affairs for the Drug Policy Alliance, said:

“The pandemic really upended so many people’s lives, especially people already living at the margins. People lost their jobs, they were isolated. These are all factors that increase problematic drug use.”

We need to remember this the next time we run into a pandemic and it will happen. We have basically destroyed the country over the overreaction to this pandemic. People have died, not only from the China virus, but from the bad policies we put in place.

But the article also skips kind of an important piece. Illegal immigration. Most of the fentanyl in this country is coming over the border. China and Mexico are using the open border to get drugs into this country.

You knew who knew that? President Trump.

Former Defense Secretary under Trump, Mark Esper, claims in his upcoming book that Trump on two occasions wanted to launch some patriot missiles into Mexico to destroy the cartel’s drug labs. The missiles could be launched secretly and the United States could deny they did it. Esper said this would not be a good idea.

Esper was not a fan of Donald Trump. According to the Daily Caller:

Esper also claims Trump is “an unprincipled person who, given his self-interest, should not be in the position of public service.” Esper allegedly considered resigning several times but was allegedly worried that should he resign he would be replaced with a pro-Trump loyalist, which Esper believed would be unfair to the American people.

I am very skeptical of folks that worked with Trump. Many don’t like him. But do I think Trump might have said this? Yes. I would bet a buffalo nickel on it.

Heck, I have always thought we were going to need to do something about these drug cartels. I have even said the best way to deal with them is to go in militarily. We can do that on the basis that the cartels are a clear and present danger to the United States. With 107,000 people dying of drug overdoses, I think the argument is pretty solid especially since Mexico can’t seem to control the cartels for whatever reason.

Trump’s idea might not have been the best, though I think it is, but at least he’s acknowledging a problem and thinking outside the box to solve the problem and protect Americans. Do you see any other politicians doing anything or even acknowledging the the real crisis?

I’m Not Seeing the Math

Chicago mayor, Lori Lightfoot, probably the worst mayor in America today, decided to throw her hat in the abortion debate.

She tweeted:

OK, there are some real problems with this:

  • Lori Lightfoot is a lesbian. What does she care about abortion? She can’t get pregnant.
  • What does the LGBTQ+ community have to do with abortion? Most of them can’t get pregnant.
  • Call to arms? Really? In Chicago? I’ll take that fight!
    • Chicago has the most restrictive gun control laws in the country.
    • The only people that have guns are the criminals.
    • What are they going to fight with? Sticks?

This is what the pro-abortion Democrats are doing. They are trying to conflate abortion with all the other economic and intersectional talking points available out there.

  • The economy needs abortion.
  • People of color needs abortion.
  • LGBTQ+ needs abortion.
  • Gas prices need abortion.
  • Inflation needs abortion.

None of this stuff makes any sense which is why they are so into shutting everyone up.

Dude, Stop!

Madonna, the 63-year-old singer has figured out a way to make money in her old age.

According to the New York Post:

The 63-year-old singer teamed up with nonfungible token extraordinaire Beeple to create a series of X-rated graphics showing her fully nude and giving birth to butterflies, insects and trees. Called “Mother of Creation,” the NFT collection, which will be sold for charity, also includes a 3D model of Madonna’s vagina — which is on full display in cartoon form on the collection’s highly (don’t say we didn’t warn you) NSFW website.

What is an NFT you might ask. It stands for nonfungible token and what it is a unique digital asset that cannot be copied and that there is only one of. Basically, it is a digital piece “artwork” that is unique and its uniqueness is determined by an encryption token built within it. It’s hard to believe that someone could go into Photoshop and create a picture that someone would pay good money for but there are. One NFT sold for $91 million.

Anyway, Madonna made three NFT videos with her naked and flashing her cooch around.

  • Mother of Creation where a tree grows out her cooch.
  • Mother of Evolution where butterflies fly out of her cooch.
  • Mother of technology where robot worms crawl out of her cooch.

Why anyone would want bugs crawling out of her cooch, I don’t not know but whatever. Here is an example of one of her NFTs.

Yeah, it’s crap but someone will pay for it. Good news, it is going to charity but this shows how desperate Madonna is for attention.

It also shows how stupid people are that pay for this crap (it’s a 63-year-old woman cooch that has seen more action that Tom Brady). Just to I screen recorded this trash and I now have a copy of what people are going to pay millions of dollars for.

Episode 536 – Let’s Talk Culture!

Let’s talk about what’s happening in the culture.

 

The Crazy Goes Forward

According to the New York Post:

In July 2021, Democratic Gov. Kate Brown signed the controversial “Menstrual Dignity Act,” which requires all K-12 schools to provide free sanitary products to students — along with instructions on their use, Fox News reported.

In a statement, the Portland Public Schools said:

“Starting next year (2022-2023), products will be available in all restrooms (male, female and all-gender) in every PPS building where education occurs. To ensure timely compliance, PPS ordered 500 dispensers. Dispensers have been installed in all elementary and middle school girls’ restrooms, and more will be installed in all remaining bathrooms, including boys’ restrooms, next year,”

So the schools in Portland are putting tampon and maxi pad dispensers in boys’ bathrooms because, as you know, boys can menstruate. Except they can’t. All the dispensers and product will be available for free. 

The statement continues:

“Instructions on how to use tampons and pads will be posted in all bathrooms.”

I would love to get a hold of those instructions for the boys. Are they still going to tell them to put the pad next to their vaginas?

The article continued:

In March, the state Education Department also issued a “Menstrual Dignity for Students” tool kit containing instructions on how to use menstrual products and tips for “menstruation-positive” language for families.

“Importantly, [the Menstrual Dignity Act] affirms the right to menstrual dignity for transgender, intersex, nonbinary, and two spirit students by addressing the challenges that some students have managing menstruation while minimizing negative attention that could put them at risk of harm and navigating experiences of gender dysphoria during menstruation,” part of the kit’s introduction read, Fox News reported.

“Research also connects gender-affirming bathroom access to supporting student safety at school,” it added.

What a load of crap. Don’t let anyone tell you that they are not teaching Radical Gender Theory in schools. Not only are they teaching it, they are making it part of the school culture.

Not everyone agrees with this (probably because it is insane).

Oregon gubernatorial candidate and conservative writer Bridget Barton blew up on the Oregon governor, Kate Brown:

“Radical leftist woke policies are destroying Oregon from our streets to our businesses to our schools. But as a mom, a new grandmother, and a Republican candidate for Oregon governor, I can’t believe we’re even discussing this — America’s most unpopular governor, Kate Brown, is putting free tampons in the boys’ bathrooms of Oregon’s elementary schools. Clearly Brown cares more about what’s going on in the bathrooms than what’s going on in the classrooms.”

Oregon has one of the worst public school systems in the country. But the boys have tampons and instructions on how to use them! The party of science.

https://nypost.com/2022/05/06/oregon-law-requires-menstrual-products-in-boys-bathrooms/

 

This Isn’t Even Funny

Next month is Gay Pride month. Or LGBTQ Pride month. I can’t keep track and I don’t really care.

When these come, companies have a tendency kiss the ass of the LGBTQ community. One suck store that does this is Target. They will have a section with nothing but LGBTQ crap like shirts and shorts with rainbows, clothes with pride statements. I think, last year, I even saw a pride suit.

Well, they’ve decided to double down on pride month.

According to Bustle.com:

June is only weeks away, which means corporate windows across the country will soon be rainbow-washed with the vibrant colors of Pride month. But, as we know, creating quality Pride merch isn’t simply slapping a technicolor flag on a $10 T-shirt and calling it a day. Queer talent must be employed behind the scenes (not just within the promotional content), funds must be donated to LGBTQ+ charities, and brands toting inclusion and acceptance must practice this within their company culture year-round.

Thankfully, Target’s latest collaborations hit the mark. The superstore, known for their quick-to-sell fashion collabs, has released two new collaborations ahead of Pride month, launching accessible, gender-affirming products for everybody and every body. What makes these collaborations different from every other rainbow-splattered product at your local dollar store? Target partnered with TomboyX and Humankind — two queer-owned, female-founded brands — to create these much-needed lines.

These are much needed products, huh? And the reason they are hard to find is most people don’t need or use this stuff. It also seems kind of creepy to sell this stuff to kids.

The article continues:

The TomboyX collab features undergarments like compression tops — a comfortable alternative to chest binders — as well as packing underwear, bras, and boyshorts in size S-4X. Humankind’s line, on the other hand, includes various swimsuit styles such as swim trunks, tops, and unisuits. As binders and gender-affirming swimsuits are notoriously difficult to find (particularly in extended sizes), this accessible drop will make shopping for everyday garments much easier.

In case you don’t know what a chest binder is or a compression top, they are tops that push the boobs down to hide the breasts. As for packing under wear, this is underwear that has an extra piece built in that simulates a penis.

Now, this would just be funny if it weren’t for the fact compression tops and chest binders are dangerous and damaging for girls.

According to PrideInPractice.org:

That said, even a dedicated binder is not without risk, and binding improperly or for too long can lead to chest and back pain, rib bruising and fractures, shortness of breath, overheating, and skin damage.

Of course, there could be permanent damage to the breasts including deformity and losing functionality.

And Target is  supporting this. There’s another store I won’t be going to.

Good Idea

We know that math is racist, literature is racist, hard work is racist, being motivated is racist and tests are racist. You know who agrees with that? The American Bar Association.

According to the Daily Wire:

The American Bar Association (ABA) has endorsed dropping the standardized test required for admission to law school in a newly released memo from the organization.

The potential removal of the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) could significantly change the admissions process used in the nation’s law schools.

So, now you don’t have to take a test to prove you will be able to get through law school. I took the LSAT and it was a tough test. I studied for it for about six months and was only a little bit above average. That test was why I decided not to go to law school. I had other things going on in my life but I knew if I did go to law school, I would not be the next Supreme Court Justice.

The ABA released a statement:

“Eliminating the requirement of a ‘valid and reliable’ admission test also eliminates some of the challenges inherent in determining which tests are in fact valid and reliable for law school admissions, although of course law schools must still show that their use of an admission test, should they choose to require one, is consistent with sound admission practices and procedures.”

Law school is nothing but a challenge. It’s hard. It should be hard to get in.

There is a bigger goal here by the ABA and that’s to break the meritocracy which states the best people should be chosen for the job on behalf of people of color who have a very low attendance in law schools. Here’s the thing: restrictions have been lowered for people of color to get into law schools already. They still have to take the test but they don’t have to have as high a score or have as high of under grad grades as white people. Law professors at Harvard law (which has the most black law students) have complained that a lot of people of color who are let in because their race was a consideration are not prepared for law school and have chance of graduating.

There are plenty of bad lawyers out there and they do not affect our lives for the most part. But the American Medical Association also wants to do the same thing with the medical schools. Do you feel comfortable being operated on by someone who got into medical school just because of his race?

Just Pay the $.70

There has been a major controversy with Starbucks. People have been protesting Starbucks because they are selling non-dairy creamer, vegan creamer, for $.70 a container. The big group that is protesting is the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals or PETA.

This week, actor and vegan, James Cromwell, decided to join in on the protest. So he went to a Starbucks, wearing a pro-PETA shirt, and super-glued his hand to the counter. Other PETA members started recording it and chanting then Cromwell made a statement. Listen:

A couple of things here:

  • They are protesting Starbucks, one of the most Left leaning companies in the country. Remember, the Left always eats itself.
  • They are protesting, not because they don’t have a vegan alternative, but because they are charging for that vegan alternative.
    • Most places don’t have a vegan alternative.
    • If these people protested at those places, they’d be kicked or arrested. Starbucks won’t do that.
    • Vegan alternatives have to be produced, cream from cows doesn’t. That’s why it’s free.
  • Finally, James Cromwell is work $8 million dollars. He can afford to pay an extra $.70 for vegan creamer. Heck he could pay for everyone’s vegan creamer within that store.
  • In fact, I will go on a limb and say that anyone that goes into Starbucks and can afford a $5.00 cup of coffee can afford $.70 for vegan cream.

Episode 535 – Look at the Shiny Bauble!

Biden continues to spend money but in all the wrong places and for the wrong reasons.

The LGBTQ Nation releases an article about a man who thinks he’s a woman not being allowed to go into a women’s prison in North Carolina. They conveniently left something important out of the article.

And a guest on MSNBC has a weird take on the Supreme Court draft leak.

 

Worry About HERE!

The Ukraine/Russia war continues to rage on and there doesn’t look like an end in sight. The reality is Russia can’t lose this war so they are going to fight till the end. I see this war going for years.

Joe Biden is going all in on this war.

  • The Biden administration has already spent about $30 billion in arms, supplies and money on Ukraine.
  • Two weeks ago, the Biden administration released another $33 billion dollars to Ukraine.
  • Yesterday, Joe Biden asked for an additional $39 billion for Ukraine.
    • Does this look like we are fighting a proxy war with Russia?
    • Europe isn’t spending this type of money.
  • The $39 billion is being held up because Biden included another $10 billion in the bill for COVID relief.
    • STOP SPENDING MONEY!
    • When is this administration going to realize the pandemic is over?
    • When is this government going to realize he more money they spend the higher inflation goes?

I have some real thoughts about this:

  • First and foremost, I think what Russia is doing is bad and they do need to be deterred.
    • Economic sanctions did not work because not everyone is following through because they can’t Russia’s economy is back to where it was before.
    • Putin doesn’t care about the economy much because he’s not personally affected. He’s worth billions and won’t miss a meal. He doesn’t care about the people who are the real ones suffering.
  • I don’t mind militarily supporting Ukraine. But I do have some reservation about it that the military and the public has:
    • What about our military? Are we replenishing the weapons we give to Ukraine? The military says no.
    • Do we know what Ukraine is doing with the money we are giving them?
      • Don’t forget, Ukraine is one of the most corrupt countries in the world.
      • Ukraine is not a democracy. It’s still an oligarchy.
    • Are we running a proxy war through Ukraine with Russia?
    • Seems we are. Reports have us giving intelligence to Ukraine to that led to the sinking of a Russian missile ships.

Joe Biden wanted a victory in Ukraine to be a big win for him going into the 2022 elections. Here’s the problem: most people don’t care about Ukraine. It is not the biggest problem for Americans. In fact, it’s only number 4 biggest problems since March. It has dropped even further. And it looks like there is not going to be a all out victory for Ukraine. Russia will probably take quarter of the country.

It is not going to being a Democratic selling point in November. That’s why abortion has taken center stage. Abortion isn’t a great platform either.

But that’s the problem with this administration. It is completely out of touch. Here’s Merrick Garland of the Justice Department explaining a new department he is opening up:

This is with crime, illegal drugs, human trafficking and illegal immigration at all time highs. In that list, the environment is ranked 14th with the biggest problems in the United States.

https://www.statista.com/statistics/323380/public-opinion-on-the-most-important-problem-facing-the-us/

 

The Real Problems

Everything is falling apart in this country and the Biden administration is not doing anything about.

  • Today, gas prices hit record highs. It is going back to $6 a gallon in California.
  • There is a huge baby formula shortage.
  • There is a shortage of product at grocery stores in general. Have you tried to buy pasta lately.
  • The stock market is crashing. It has lost 5000 points since Biden took office. The people that are being hit here are retirees.
  • The rise in interest rates is making homes unaffordable which is crashing home prices. People are finding themselves underwater with the home values.
  • The GDP is down 1.4% for the first time since the pandemic started.
  • Though Biden has said that the deficit is going down be a trillion dollars, the Washington Post gave the claim 3 Pinocchio’s.
  • The Consumer Price Index is going to be released tomorrow. Though its not going to be shocking, it is still going to have inflation over 8%.
  • Finally, there is about a 50% chance we are going to end up in a recession within the next 2 years.

All this is happening. People are suffering. People are openly saying they are suffering. But the Biden administration is worried about Ukraine and abortion.

Democrats are going to get killed in November.

What’s Missing Here?

LGBTQ Nation release an article about a man who says he’s a woman is being harassed in a men prison in North Carolina. The ACLU is now suing the Department of Corrections for not putting him in a women’s prison and not paying for his sex change operation.

I’m going to read this story and I want you to see if you can find what’s missing from this story:

The North Carolina ACLU filed a complaint at the end of April on behalf of Kanautica Zayre-Brown, a transgender woman being held in a North Carolina facility. 

Zayre-Brown is incarcerated at Anson Correctional Institution and has allegedly been denied gender-affirming care. In addition, she was held in a male facility for two years before being transferred to Anson. 

He’s being held in a male prison because he is a male. He also looks like a pretty big male.

In a release, the ACLU said the North Carolina DPS’s refusal of care for Zayre-Brown constituted a violation of the US and North Carolina constitutions as well as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. The legal action “seeks damages and an injunction requiring DPS to provide Mrs. Zayre-Brown with necessary medical care and accommodations for her gender dysphoria, including the use of gender-consistent terminology, consistent hormone therapy maintenance, and gender-affirming surgery.”

ACLU of North Carolina attorney Jaclyn Maffetore said, “DPS’s denial of treatment is not only discriminatory – it is inhumane. By refusing to treat her gender dysphoria, DPS subjects Mrs. Zayre-Brown to needless suffering and places her life at risk.”

Couple of things:

  • Not using someone’s “preferred pronouns” is now considered discriminatory and inhumane. The DPS needs to be punished for it.
  • The ACLU might have stepped in it with this one. Are they saying that being trans is a disability? Well, of course it is because it is a mental illness.

Transgender people in carceral institutions statistically face higher degrees of violence than many other groups, including but not limited to violence from lack of gender-affirming care. In December 2021, a federal court ordered the Federal Bureau of Prisons to evaluate a transgender prisoner for gender-affirming care. This marked the first instance of such an action by the courts. 

The lawsuit points out that DPS was aware from the beginning of Zayre-Brown’s imprisonment that she had gender dysphoria but placed her nonetheless in a male facility.

Where were they going to stick him? In a women’s prison?

Hey, not everybody buys this crap and DPS has more than just this guy to worry about. They have to worry about the women in the women’s prison too.

“Being a transgender woman in a male facility exacerbated Mrs. Zayre-Brown’s gender dysphoria, caused her extreme mental and psychological distress, placed her at grave risk of physical… and sexual assault, and led to Mrs. Zayre-Brown being placed on suicide-watch.”

By the way, he’s in prison with other criminals. Maybe if he’s worried about being abused by the other dregs that have been taken out of society, as he has been, he should not have gone into prison in the first place.

Taylor Brown, staff attorney for the LGBTQ & HIV Rights Project at the ACLU was also quoted in the official release about the complaint and said it will hold the North Carolina DPS accountable for their actions regarding Zayre-Brown.

“The North Carolina Department of Public Safety will now have to answer for their unlawful and discriminatory behavior, as we fight to get Mrs. Zayre-Brown the health care that she requires and is constitutionally due,” Brown said. “The ACLU and our affiliate partners across the country will continue to hold prisons accountable for violations and deprivations of the rights of incarcerated transgender people.”

OK, there you have it. That’s the entire article. Do you notice something missing in the article? How about why he’s in prison and how long does he have to serve?

I had to go through six article, all saying about the same thing, before I found out what he did.

Apparently,

In 2017, Zayre-Brown went to prison as a habitual felon, convicted of insurance fraud and obtaining property by false pretenses. In others words he is serving life in prison for identity theft including home title fraud. This man has ruined lives. Obviously he still has a lot of money from his crimes because he’s willing to pay the $100,000 for his sex change operation. But that’s not what the ACLU wants him to do, they want the state to pay for the operation. Not only does the state have to pay to house this bastard, using taxpayer money from the productive and honest participants in society, they want the state to pay for his perversion with taxpayer money from the productive and honest participants in society.

Why am I paying taxes? To support this?

Just Listen to This

This is just such an amazing clip from a news from some guest on MSNBC. They are talking about the leaking of the Supreme Court draft by Justice Alito:

Some things:

  • Can you think of a more vile thing to say?
  • There is nothing she can say from here on out that will make anyone take her serious.
  • By the way, that’s the new Leftist talking point: a Conservative leaked the draft. That makes no sense whatsoever.
  • That’s because the leak is not being looked at in a bright light and it will hurt Democrats if any violence is done to any of the justices.

Episode 533 – They Grew What, Where?

Let’s get passed this abortion stuff to end the week.

Apple employees are lazy.

This story is so bazar I had to read it twice and then tell you about it.

And a prominent communist scholar finally admits Trump may not have been so bad.

 

Fire The All

According to the Daily Mail:

A group of Apple employees have accused the big-tech giant of only benefiting privileged staff with its push for corporate workers to return to the office, saying that the shift back to an in-person model will make the company ‘younger, whiter, [and] more male-dominated.’

The employees, organized under the newly-formed group Apple Together, petitioned the company on Friday in an open letter after CEO Tim Cook told staffers that they would need to work from the office one day a week starting on April 11, two days per week after three weeks, and three days per week after May 23. 

They wrote that the decision to bring employees back to the office was not motivated by a ‘need to commune in person,’ as Cook wrote in his letter to staff, but rather was driven by the company’s ‘fear of the future of work, fear of worker autonomy [and] fear of losing control.’

Now in my day, all the idiot kids would receive a group E-mail that says “no, come to work” and, if they continued to protest, they would be fired unceremoniously.

But that won’t happen:

  • Companies have gone woke. Apple is a very Leftist company.
  • Apple buys this concept of stakeholder capitalism. The employees are stakeholders.
  • There is also a big push by the Left for a Great Reset after the pandemic ends
    • The idea is that we should all be working at home because it will shrink our corporate footprint. We don’t need all the buildings anymore.
    • It will be better for the environment because people will be traveling less and won’t need cars.
    • We have the technology for it and have proven it can work.
    • And those kids know these concepts.
  • Apple does have an equality problem. They are 70% men and 30% woman with a majority of people being white.
    • That shouldn’t be Apple’s problem since most of their people are software engineers.
    • But they won’t want to be challenged.

But these kids don’t get it, either.

I remember I used to think that these entitled kids would learn when they got into the real world. Now these same entitled kids are in the workforce, the companies are being run by people who went to the same colleges, learned the same philosophies and still get upset when being called a racist and boardrooms are pushing stakeholder capitalism where they actually give a damn about these whiney kids.

But this idea here isn’t good for the kids either. They never get to socialize with the other employees and that important. They never develop any camaraderie with the teams they work with. They’re not be monitored to see if they are actually working and don’t tell me they working as hard or long at home as they would be at work.

But there’s one thing that bothered me when I was working from home: I had a hard time unwinding. My office and my home are the same thing. When I traveled to work, I had time to prepare for the day. When I traveled home, I would unwind and home was a relaxing environment because I was away from work.

I also think having to get dressed to go to work makes the individual more productive.

This Can’t Be Serious

According to the New York Post:

A man who lost his penis due to a severe blood infection has had an artificial member surgically attached to his nether region — six years after it was designed by doctors.

“I feel like a real man again,” Malcolm MacDonald, 47, exclaimed in a new documentary detailing his extraordinary ordeal.

The mechanic — who resides in Norfolk, England — was left mortified back in 2010 when his penis “just dropped off onto the floor” after he suffered an infection in his perineum.

Surgeons subsequently manufactured a new penis for the father of two using a skin flap on his left arm. They planned to move the manmade member down to his pubic area but were forced to stop the operation due to a lack of oxygen in his blood.

Now, this guy has a penis hanging off his arm. I had to read this twice because I thought it was fake. They had an entire engineering plan going on to make this thing erect and stabilize it and everything. You have to wonder who the hell thought this whole thing out and what was his motivation.

Well this guy is going to make some money on this because he’s doing a documentary on it.

Coming to the Light?

Noam Chomsky is a linguist from MIT. He’s a very smart man. But he has some real issues:

  • He hates democracy.
  • He hates capitalism.
  • He has written a book, Rule for Radicals, which is required reading by Antifa members.
  • He’s a full-fledged communist.

He also hates Donald Trump. He wrote several articles condemning Trump. He’s called him a Nazi.

But, he did admit something that sent shockwaves around the Internet:

Yes, he sounds old. That’s because he’s older than dirt. But this is a hell of a turn. This is coming from a guy who detests this country and he is saying that there would be no war in Europe if Trump was in office.

This is the thing, no one has given Trump any credit.

  • He is the first President in forever that did not deploy troops.
  • He destroyed ISIS. Well, they’re back.
  • He had three peace treaties in the Middle East.
  • He kept Russia, North Korea, Iran and China in check militarily.
  • He was the first President to walk into North Korea.
  • He had one of the lowest unemployment rates in history.
  • The stock market went nuts under him.
  • GDP was the highest in ten years.
  • And when the pandemic hit, he had a vaccine within six months. It didn’t work but he had one.

But he said crap. That’s what is going to be on his tombstone: Donald J. Trump – Said a lot of crap.

Well, we got what we voted for.

Nonsense

I want you to listen to this and tell me what was said. This is a little video by a gal named Robyn Henderson-Espinoza. I’ll give you a little more about her or it or whatever after you listen to the video:

Yeah, OK, what?

Let me calm you down. You’re not an idiot. She just strung a bunch of words together and made up a couple. Elon Musk said: Just because you got a college degree doesn’t mean you are not an idiot.

Some things about Doctor Robyn Henderson-Espinoza from her website and from Duke Divinity School (that’s not disturbing):

  • She’s a trans-queer Latinx.
  • An activist scholar.
  • And a Politicized Theologian.
  • Her bio on the University’s website says: Robyn Henderson-Espinoza, Ph.D. has been described in a myriad of ways: a scholar-activist, scholar-leader, thought-leader, teacher, public theologian, ethicist, poet of moral reason, and word artist. That means she’s a bullshit artist.
  • She has also been described as: Among these ways of describing Dr. Henderson-Espinoza, they are also a visionary thinker who has spent two decades working in the borderlands of church, academy, and movements seeking to not only disrupt but dismantle supremacy culture by focusing their Ph.D. studies on new concepts of being and becoming, decolonizing knowledge production, and bridging with radical difference.
  • She describes her work on her site: My life’s work focuses on connecting the dots between theory & action, helping folks within the dominant culture & white-passing folks – who are ready to confront their socialization – to identify the ways they have been conscripted into supremacy culture by leaning into connection and relationship and by composting existing hierarchies into the kind of transformed culture we long to see emerge.
  • She supports critical race theory.
  • She supports Black Lives Matter.
  • And she’s really fat.

This is a gal who teaches at Duke University which charges $60K a year. And we wonder why Apple employees have the audacity to say they don’t want to come to work?

Send your kids to a trade school.

Episode 532 – It’s Just a Draft!

Let’s take a look at the leak of Samuel Alito’s draft abortion ruling.

Let’s look at the media reactions.

Finally, let’s get back on track of what’s important.

 

The Leak

This ruling wasn’t suppose to come out until next month. This was a draft ruling. It’s not finished or voted on. How in the hell did this thing get out? In my 54 years, I have never heard of this happening with the Supreme Court.

More than likely, the leaker was some Lefty activist in Sotomayor’s office. I do not think Sotomayor herself would leak it or encourage one of her minions to leak it. But she is the most leftist activist on the court and Ketanji Brown Jackson isn’t on the court yet.

It is very bad that ruling get released. There are a few reasons:

  • The decision hasn’t been voted on. It’s only a draft. We cannot count that this is the decision.
  • Public opinion could affect the actual decision (though unlikely).
  • There could be threats made against the justices to force them to change their minds.
  • There could be violence against the justices.

The legal and political communities is absolutely flipping out.

  • SCOTUSblog: “It’s impossible to overstate the earthquake this will cause inside the Court, in terms of the destruction of trust among the Justices and staff. This leak is the gravest, most unforgivable sin.”
  • Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL): “The next time you hear the far left preaching about how they are fighting to preserve our Republic’s institutions & norms remember how they leaked a Supreme Court opinion in an attempt to intimidate the justices on abortion.”
  • Shannon Bream, Fox News: “Never seen anything even CLOSE to this in my 15 years covering #SCOTUS. Urge plenty of caution until an official opinion is eventually released.”
  • Andy McCarthy, former federal prosecutor: “If this story is true, the Court should issue its opinion right away. Otherwise the disgraceful leak wins. I would say that if my side lost. If we lose the integrity of the Court’s process, we lose the Court. That should be intolerable to all of us who live the country.”
  • Jonathan Turley, Shapiro Chair of Public Interest Law at George Washington University: “The alleged leak of the opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization is nothing short of breathtaking. It would constitute one of the greatest breaches of security in the history of the Court. The article represents the greatest crisis that Chief Justice John Roberts has faced in his tenure on the Court. It is a breach of the most fundamental obligations and traditions of the Court. If this is a true copy of the draft opinion it is hard not to view this as a malicious act. What is the motivation of releasing such a decision? The only intent of such a leak is to trigger a response from outside of the Court. This draft is from February and the majority can shift on such opinions. However, the act of leaking such a draft opinion ranks as an original sin for judicial ethics. The most likely motivation is obviously to pressure the Court and push the legislation in Congress on a federal abortion law before the midterm elections. It will also likely renew the call for court packing.”

Chief Justice John Roberts released a statement today. He said:

“Justices circulate draft opinions internally as a routine and essential part of the Court’s confidential deliberative work. Although the document described in yesterday’s reports is authentic, it does not represent a decision by the Court or the final position of any member on the issues in the case.

“To the extent this betrayal of the confidences of the Court was intended to undermine the
integrity of our operations, it will not succeed. The work of the Court will not be affected
in any way.

“We at the Court are blessed to have a workforce – permanent employees and law clerks
alike – intensely loyal to the institution and dedicated to the rule of law,” he said. “Court employees have an exemplary and important tradition of respecting the confidentiality of the judicial process and upholding the trust of the Court. This was a singular and egregious breach of that trust that is an affront to the Court and the community of public servants who work
here.”

So he’s going to have the court marshal investigate the leak.

Good! Whoever did this needs to be found, prosecuted and thrown in jail. This person should be treated as a traitor. This is one of the most unethical, immoral and illegal things someone could do.

 

Whining and Crying and Gnashing of Teeth

What’s fun about the Left being mad is they say some really insane things. I like to exploit this so let’s listen to the insanity that has been circulating the news and social media. Politicians are a bit meaner. We will cover them in a bit more detail.

For the media, let’s play a game. The DC Shorts on YouTube released a compilation of media insanity. Now, usually, I like to introduce each clip and give a thoughtful commentary but there are just too many. But let’s make this a game. I play the clip and give two to three short comments. That way we can get through this within two hours.

Here’s the first:

Some things:

  • No one is going after anything. Alito said that three times.
  • Why would any justice go after Brown versus the Board of Education, the law that ended segregation? Because all Conservatives are racist, of course.
  • The Supreme Court never eroded voting rights. They stated that certain states were violating the state constitutions in federal election.
  • I like the fascism the Supreme Court is pushing because, if states have to vote and debate abortion, it looks like Democracy.
  • Finally, Joy Behardt is an idiot.

Next:

Don’t cry. Be brave. Be a man. Though we don’t know what that is suppose to mean anymore.

Next:

Some things:

  • Liz considers it extremist that justices read the actual Constitution that she has sworn an oath to protect.
  • There we go! Destroy the system and cheat.
  • You know what I was mad about? Liz Warren pretending to be a Native American to get into Harvard.

Next:

Yes because Roe versus Wade and Casey versus Planned Parenthood were crappy rulings. He spent 98 pages telling us why. Maybe she should have read a little of it.

Next:

Some things:

  • The federal government was already in control but you liked the results.
  • Now, the federal government might have to release the control and give the decision to the people. This is Federalism which the Founding Fathers believed in.
  • Federalism is the fundamental and cultural base of this country. The Left has been picking away at it for the last century.

Next:

Some things:

  • Abortion isn’t taken away. It’s just being allowed to be voted on by individual states.
  • And it was the same stroke of a pen that allowed abortion again.

Next are two clips. They say pretty much the same thing:

And:

Some things:

  • I want to point out that Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood was a racist and eugenicist.
  • She built Planned Parenthood clinics in black areas to limit the black populations. She wrote about it. She lectured about it.
  • 57% of black women who get pregnant, have abortions.
  • Technically, anti-abortionists want the black population to grow.

Next:

We have been in the dark ages of the United states for the last 15 years. It has peaked since about 2015.

Next:

Some things:

  • That statistic is misleading. That 70% don’t know what Roe does. They think abortion will be completely banned. It won’t be.
  • Most people just want abortion banned in the third trimester, heavily regulated in the second trimester and not much regulation in the first trimester.
  • And I love this but a precedent is not necessarily constitutional. That would mean Dred Scott was constitutional.

Next:

Roe versus Wade was a bad decision. We might finally have a court that calls it out for what it is.

Next:

Some things:

  • Again, if Roe versus Wade is overturned, abortion is not ended but this is what the media wants.
  • By the way, the wire hanger abortions in bathroom was all a lie. The guy who said it is not anti-abortion and he said it was propaganda campaign.

Finally, the crème-de-la-crème from Whoopie Goldberg:

Some things:

  • “Me, my doctor and my child”? Huh?
  • Again with the public bathroom thing.
  • Abortion is not safe for the child or the woman.
  • It is a human issue. The baby is also a human.
  • This is a woman that wants to force everyone to wear a face diaper and get government approved shots for the rest of our live.

Politicians got into the act and threw out a lot of faux outrage. You already heard Liz Warren.

Here’s Pramila Jayapal. She is open and proud to tell everyone that she had an abortion in the past:

Some things:

  • I love when people use this argument because my answer is simple. There are lots of ways not to get pregnant.
  • I love when she talks about the future for the woman getting the abortion. What about the child’s future?
  • Roe versus Wade is not a law. It’s a precedent and a bad one.
  • It’s not a right for them to to determine and create precedents, it’s their job. That’s why they are there.

Here’s Chuck Schumer also throwing a fit:

Some things:

  • I love when he does this because it’s so fake.
  • You know what I’m outraged about? The Democrats in 1973 legalized abortion, made it so commonplace women think they have to have an abortion to be women.
  • And, as far as the millions and millions of women thing, I just want to point out that over 60 million babies have been aborted.

Finally, Old Joe had some words about it:

Some things:

  • He can’t seem to remember any questions.
  • Robert Bork was a textualist. He didn’t believe the government gave rights, he believed God gave rights.
  • Him saying he’s a child of God is just ironic.

Notice, not one comment, from anything we listened to, mentioned the historic event of leaking a Supreme Court draft.

 

Keeping Our Eyes on the Ball

The fed, today, rose the interest rate another 0.5% to try to control the wild fire that is inflation. This is going to raise rates on big ticket items like car and home loans. It’s business loans more difficult to obtain and afford. It’s going to hit the employment rate.

You might be asking why I am bringing this up after this entire article being about abortion reaction. That’s because abortion is going to be the Democrats new narrative, their platform for the election in November. They’ve fucked up everything else.

  • The economy is a disaster.
  • Gas prices are a disaster.
  • The border is a disaster.
  • Afghanistan was a disaster.
  • Our foreign policy is a disaster.
  • We have high crime, drug abuse a huge homeless problem.

Everything the Democrats have touched has been a disaster. They have decided to rally people around abortion. There’s a problem with that. Democrats have a tough time when confronted about abortion. Listen to this little clip from California that came out about a year and a half ago. It kind of proves my point:

This is why abortion is not going to be a great platform that is going to unite the Democrat party in the elections in November. When they have to explain their policies, they are horrific and people just won’t buy it.

Episode 531 – It Only Took 50 Years

It might finally be over. Roe versus Wade might be done.

 

A Momentous Ruling and Sin

A draft of the ruling for Dobbs v. Mississippi (2022) has been leaked by someone at the Supreme Court. It was leaked to Politico, obviously by some activist on the court. We are going to talk about the ruling as it is written and talk about the reactions. Then we are going to talk about the leak and the reactions to the leak.

Believe it or not, we pretty much know where this leak came from.

 

The Ruling

The best way to go through this is to use the words that Justice Samuel Alito used. So let’s go through the highlights that Politico brought forward.

Some things:

  • This is important. Alito is pointing out that abortion was not popular. Most of the country did not want it.
  • He also points out that this was a national debate. Roe versus Wade ended that debate.

What he says here is true. Abortion was not a debate when the Constitution was written. It is not part of the Constitution and there is no reference to it anywhere. This is right. The Constitution is a living document but it must go through the amendment process. The courts can’t do that.

Yes, the courts had no right to make up laws.

Again, this is a Federalist, states rights argument. This is correct.

This is really the only argument the Left is pointing to. Stare Decisis is the the belief that a law cannot be overturned because of precedent. This just isn’t the case. There are a lot of precedents that have been overturned because they were bad precedents (Dred Scott would be one of them).

This was a bad precedent.

  • Abortion was never in the Constitution.
  • Privacy, which the court cited as the reason for abortion, is also not expressly stated in the Constitution.
  • The Supreme Court did not have the science in 1973 that we did as early as 1980 with the test tube baby.
  • And it was a real stretch to apply privacy to the killing of babies.

This is a long statement but it is right on.

 

This is exactly correct and I am shocked that this court finally had the guts to say it. This is what people don’t get: This ruling completely ignored the Constitution.

This is a bit of a cowardly statement. The ruling was unconstitutional. He should have said that. If the federal government can’t make a law, the states must determine the laws.

They know now. So let’s talk about how this ruling got released.

 

White House Response

As you can imagine, everyone on the Left is flipping out.

President Biden, always the unifier, released a statement today:

“We do not know whether this draft is genuine, or whether it reflects the final decision of the Court. With that critical caveat, I want to be clear on three points about the cases before the Supreme Court.

“First, my administration argued strongly before the Court in defense of Roe v. Wade. We said that Roe is based on ‘a long line of precedent recognizing ‘the Fourteenth Amendment’s concept of personal liberty’… against government interference with intensely personal decisions.

“I believe that a woman’s right to choose is fundamental, Roe has been the law of the land for almost fifty years, and basic fairness and the stability of our law demand that it not be overturned.

“I directed my Gender Policy Council and White House Counsel’s Office to prepare options for an Administration response to the continued attack on abortion and reproductive rights, under a variety of possible outcomes in the cases pending before the Supreme Court.

“We will be ready when any ruling is issued.” 

Some things:

  • We do know the draft is genuine now. John Roberts said it was.
  • They did argue strongly for a precedent that was garbage.
  • The “concept” of “personal liberty” was define as privacy by both Roe and Casey. The problem is there is not absolute to privacy. Casey actually said there were no limits to one’s potential actions because “personal liberty” is defined in the 14th amendment. That’s not true.
  • Even Ruth Bader Ginsberg said Roe was a trash ruling.

He concluded by saying something that is true:

Biden, on Tuesday, added that if the Supreme Court “does overturn Roe, it will fall on our nation’s elected officials at all levels of government to protect a woman’s right to choose.” 

“And it will fall on voters to elect pro-choice officials this November. At the federal level, we will need more pro-choice Senators and a pro-choice majority in the House to adopt legislation that codifies Roe, which I will work to pass and sign into law.” 

I just want to point something out: 60% of the population believes there should be tight limits on abortion. Most believe that should be during the first trimester or the first twelve weeks. The Mississippi law sets it at 15 weeks.

What’s Going to Happen

Let’s talk about what is going to happen here if this holds as the ruling (and I think it will).

  • States that want abortion will continue with the abortions. But they will go extreme, supporting abortion to the moment of birth to even after birth.
  • States that don’t want abortion will ban it. There are a lot of states that hate abortion.
  • By the way, that’s how the government is suppose to work. States have rights and the federal government can only deal with what’s in the Constitution.
  • There will be extremes happening:
    • Like I said, states like California and New York will probably support infanticide. The 24 week limit would be gone.
    • States like California will pay for people in other states to come to their state using taxpayer money to get an abortion. California is already proposing this.
    • There will be calls to end the filibuster.
    • There will be calls to pack the Supreme Court.
    • There will be hit pieces on the Conservative justices.
    • There might be protests and riots.
  • There will be programs in blue states to get people from red states to move to them. States like California and New York
  • What this also is going to do is put abortion on the same path as slavery. A path to its end. I think that’s a good thing.

Episode 530 – It’s a Children’s Board Book

The elites get together and help to create new Republican campaign ads.

The threats against Elon Musk continue.

And Amazon employees show their true colors.

 

An Elite Get Together

On Saturday night, they held the White House Correspondence Dinner. If you don’t know what that is, it’s a celebration of the news media. It is usually run by a comedian and he roasts the President. It has not been really a thing anyone paid attention to over the last several years. It was not held last year because of the China virus and President Trump never went because he hates the media.

Per tradition, there are always some really distasteful jokes. Remember, this was the same dinner where a comedian made fun of Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ looks. Which, by the way, she took like a champ.

Here is Noah making fun of the economy under Biden:

Now, this would be a good joke because it’s true. I didn’t think it was funny because I knew where he was going before he went there. What was distressing people on Twitter and I don’t blame them was the fact that Joe Biden was laughing hysterically. I can’t think of anything more elitist than a President that laughs at the mess he created.

And people are suffering. Josie spent $250 at the grocery store and that goes along with the $250 she had to pay for her car registration. This is killing her financially. It really is no laughing matter. But Old Joe doesn’t take the economy serious and doesn’t care. It doesn’t affect him.

Here is Trevor Noah pissing on Ron DeSantis. No, he wasn’t there. DeSantis is too busy making Florida awesome while the rest of the country falls apart:

I’m not surprised by this. Ron DeSantis is going to start taking hits from the Left now that it’s looking like he is going to be the next President. I think even Trump is going to go by the wayside and pull away from 2024.

But this is how the media treats Republicans and Conservatives. Not only was everything he said just wrong, but  it was mean and not funny. This stuff used to be funny. But it’s not funny. It’s just mean.

Here is Old Joe, probably after a vitamin B shot, trying to be funny while mocking Republicans:

He should worry about the midterms and there is no way in hell he is going to get re-elected.

I also want to point out you know you’re not doing great when the only person laughing at your joke is you.

I do like his last joke about Brandon. It was funny. But I thought it was funny because Joe Biden is completely clueless that he has become a national joke. He’s become a joke in this country and around the world.

Here is Trevor Noah making, I think, a rather tasteless joke about our retreat from Afghanistan that also just got railed online:

I always give comedians a pass. Comedians are there to pick at things. I wasn’t that offended too much about this and, honestly, it was just a bad joke. But it was ill-timed. By the way, he isn’t the first comedian to do this. Gilbert Godfry (may he rest in peace) made a poorly timed joke about 9/11 during a roast of Hugh Hefner that left the crowd silent and one person yelling, “too soon”.

This was an ill-timed joke. Some soldiers of fortune are saying there are 10,000 American citizens and American allies stuck in Afghanistan and left to the tender mercies of the Taliban. Thirteen soldiers will killed in a terrorist attack. We left $83 billion dollars in military gear including helicopter, drones and weapons. Human sex trafficking is happening. The economy is dying. People are starving. Nothing has been resolved and the Afghanistan disaster isn’t over.

Yeah, the joke was, not only not funny, it was ill-timed.

You Knew This Was Coming

According to the Daily Wire:

Senate Democrats are contemplating bringing billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk before Congress for questioning over his future plans for Twitter.

Twitter announced on Monday that the social media giant and Musk, the world’s wealthiest man, had reached an agreement for Musk to purchase the company at $54.20 a share and take it private. Musk has criticized Twitter’s moderation policies and said that the platform should take an approach more in line with the First Amendment.

“We’re thinking about it,” Senate Commerce Chair Maria Cantwell (D-WA) told Bloomberg in response to a question on whether Democrats planned to question Musk.

The Senate Commerce Committee has held hearings with major social media platform heads in the past, such as former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who heads Facebook and Instagram. The committee has also had Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai to testify.

You knew this was coming. What do they want to find out? It’s going to be a private company. Musk doesn’t have to say a damn thing about what his strategies for his private company. Every company I worked for had company secrets that were never disclosed to the public. You could be fired for disclosing secrets.

Ed Markey, the communist; yes, communist, Senator from Massachusetts said:

“It’s a technology which is central to democracy and our economy and it is important for the representatives of the American people to hear what the new owners intend on using that technology to accomplish. We have to understand the censorship or lack thereof, content moderation or not, that is going to be the policy for the new owner.

“In terms of what the values are that this company is going to be creating for the new Elon Musk Twitter world, I think that’s actually a necessary role for Congress to play.”

He never condemned Twitter when they censored Republicans and Conservatives. He never questioned Google or YouTube or Facebook or Instagram or TikTok.

Again, it’s going to be a private company. Musk owes Congress nothing.

Listen, what Democrats are worried about is that Musk is going to do what he said he was going to do: allow for free speech, limit censorship and release data on the algorithms. Leftists don’t want any of that stuff.

Modern Book Burning by Amazon

There is a children’s book out there by a guy named Matt Walsh, a podcaster from the Daily Wire. The book is called Johnny the Walrus. The book is about a very imaginative boy that, one day, believes he’s a walrus. His mother, at first, thinks it’s cute but then is pressured by social media to realize that Johnny actually is a walrus and she must transition him to be a walrus.

Yes, the book is a troll railing against trans-ing kids. I will read the book to you in a video cast this week (I did buy the book).

The book, though a joke for the most part, became extremely popular. It was released in November and sold out in a day. Millions of copies were created and sold on Amazon. Matt Walsh went to number one on the Amazon charts and has been in the top three for LGBTQ literature.

Needless to say, this flipped out Amazon management. They needed to do something. So they had a meeting that was, again, leaked and his book was the topic.

Some things:

  • The book is a 27-page children’s board book.
  • It is not troubling or traumatic.
  • I also want to point out that all these people in this video sound like they are part of the LGBTQ community so I bet they are biased.

Here’s this gal bitching and moaning to Amazon about the book. It’s a little long but worth the listen.

Some things:

  • This broad is unhinged.
  • There is nothing in the book about bullying. In fact, it is the mother that is being bullied by the trans community.
  • There is nothing about sending someone to kill trans kids.
  • There is nothing in the book about committing or forcing someone to commit suicide.
  • And, of course, she’s part of the LGBTQ and the Amazon employee on the phone is part of the LGBTQ.
  • This gal needs a job. She has way too much time on her hands.

Here’s the meeting lead talk about the book and how Walsh manipulated Amazon’s algorithms:

Some things:

  • It is a children’s book.
  • There is no hate in the book. It disparages no one. It condemns no one.
  • Walsh and the Daily Wire did not manipulate anything. They did add it as an LGBTQ book as a counter to all the other LGBTQ trans books out there. There’s nothing wrong with that.
  • The book sold out. Did the Daily Wire, who published the book, manipulate everyone to buy the book? That’s why it ended up #1 in the LGBTQ section.
  • Maybe they should be more concerned about the other books in the LGBTQ category sucking.

Here’s Chuck giving his thoughts:

Some things:

  • He sounds like he might be part of the LGBTQ community.
  • Notice, they want to ban the book. Chuckie, that’s his name, doesn’t want Amazon to sell it at all.
  • This is called an echo chamber.
  • By the way, someone didn’t like what was being said. They leaked the video.

 

Some things:

  • There’s nothing disturbing here. Walsh, and most of the country, don’t believe in this transgender crap.
  • Walsh isn’t “tricking” anybody. He’s very clear about what he thinks of trans-ing kids.
  • The books, What Is a Woman, is his main argument with the trans community. He doesn’t believe in people transitioning to the opposite sex because it doesn’t happen.
  • Whenever he debates, and he does a lot, the first thing he asks the pro-trans person is, “What is a woman?” and they have no answer.
  • The title of his book is his main argument against the trans philosophy.

Finally, we get the emotional response to such a “hateful” white supremacist. Tears included:

Jeez, toughen up, buttercup. It’s a children’s board book.

Amazon ended up taking the book off of the LGBTQ list and forced the publisher to cease with their advertising campaign because it was “hateful”. The Daily Wire said “no” so Amazon took it off the site anyway. As of today, they haven’t banned the book yet. I’m pretty sure they won’t because it is making a ton of money and Amazon will get sued.

It is still number one in political commentary and opinion.

Walsh went on Tucker Carlson’s show because Tucker loves him. Here’s the introduction:

He then plays the video clips you just listened to.

Walsh then gives his argument in a cardigan sweater because he is, after all, a famous children’s book author and that’s what they wear:

Some things:

  • Is anything he is saying really that controversial?
  • By the way, you can tell he is trolling.

Of course, here is the important question:

That is the question and they are already doing it. Amazon has banned books. Amazon has marked literature like Shakespeare and Twain as problematic.

Good news, people are pushing back. This book being a number one best seller proves it.
