The Biden administration continues to militarize the bureaucracies.
Who knew the French had a sense of humor.
And everything is racist.
This Could Be the Start
The Department of Justice and the FBI are proving that we need to change the way our justice system works. And, with all the talk of revolution and civil war, these kind of things can lead to them.
Yesterday morning, the FBI raided Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home, cracked a safe and took out fifteen boxes of paperwork. The grabbed paperwork, indiscriminately which means they possibly grabbed private papers. This is unheard of. It has never happened in the history of the Presidency. Even when Bill and Hilary Clinton stole $28,000 of White House property did the FBI raid the home of a past President.
Hell, they never raided Hilary Clinton’s home when she created a secret, personal server that was holding classified material, giving her the time destroy the servers and zero out the data on the hard drives.
Apparently this raid had nothing to do with January 6th. Trump had some papers that the Presidential Archive wanted back. Nothing is illegal here. Presidents typically take paperwork from the White House if they feel it is not important to the national archive. But when the archive wants the papers back, typically this goes to court. The FBI, through orders of the DOJ, don’t raid the homes of former Presidents.
Trump released a statement:
There are two things we can learn from this.
- Our bureaucracies are broken. They either need to be eliminated or fixed.
- This is how revolutions and civil wars are started.
After the raid went public, crowds appeared outside the mansion protesting. People do not like this. It also will probably have the opposite effect. Trump seems more motivated to run than ever and hinted at that yesterday. This going to motivate people to start defying the government. To fight back. And it’s crap like this that got Trump elected in the first place. Combined with the failure of the Biden administration, this will get Trump elected again. It makes him look like a victim and is further proof there is an imbalance when it comes to justice which is what Trump has been saying for years.
Well, I will bet you a dollar that embarrassing stuff will be leaked by the FBI from the papers that they confiscated. The whole goal here is to harass and embarrass Trump so he doesn’t or can’t run in 2024. This stuff is going to be leaked in October before the elections so the Democratic candidates can talk about something and not the mess they have created through their crappy policies.
Of course, there are reactions that all are typical.
This pretty much sums it up from the media. This is Neal Katyal on MSNBC:

- I quote Joe Pesci said in My Cousin Vinny: “Everything that guy said is bullshit.”
- This is not the FBI and DOJ being non-partisan.
- If they were being non-partisan, they would have done the same thing to Hilary.
- The rule of law should be dealt out equally. It is not.
- He seems to be thrilled about the militarization of the FBI. He doesn’t get that he is threatening us.
One reporter asked the main question: Does this mean that Trump can’t run in 2024. That’s what they are concerned with.
Surprisingly, the Leftist politicians have been rather quiet about this. Nothing from Ilhan Omar or AOC. Probably because they realize that this might not be a move that most Americans won’t agree to this not to mention they hate law enforcement.
But Rep. Pramila Jayapal, (D-Wash.), who is beyond stupid, had something to say. She tweeted:
“That’s what happens when you break the law, try to steal an election, and incite a deadly insurrection. Donald Trump should be in jail. I’m glad to see the FBI taking steps towards accountability.”
Mind you, this is a woman who wants to defund the police. She thinks the law is bad except when she can use it to get rid of her political enemies.
Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.), who is a moderate Democrat, said on MSNBC:
“But look, the FBI doesn’t just go in unless a judge signs off on a search warrant. That means they have some probable evidence about possible wrongdoing. And it’s something that the whole country needs to pay attention to and shows that Justice Garland, Attorney General Garland is setting this up step by step.”
He’s actually right here. We should wait. But, we have seen in the past, the Biden administration and Merrick Garland have not been exactly transparent when it comes to what they do. We will have to see what happens.
Republicans are screaming about this. They should. They should even make this a campaign issue and run on how dangerous these Leftist Democrats are.
Ron DeSantis tweeted:
“The raid of MAL is another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies against the Regime’s political opponents, while people like Hunter Biden get treated with kid gloves. Now the Regime is getting another 87k IRS agents to wield against its adversaries? Banana Republic.”
House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy tweeted:
“Attorney General Garland: preserve your documents and clear your calendar.”
This is going to happen.
South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem tweeted:
“The FBI raid on President Trump’s home is an unprecedented political weaponization of the Justice Department. They’ve been after President Trump as a candidate, as President, and now as a former President. Using the criminal justice system in this manner is un-American.”
Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel tweeted:
“Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Countless times we have examples of Democrats flouting the law and abusing power with no recourse, including Hunter Biden. Democrats continually weaponize the bureaucracy against Republicans. This raid is outrageous.”
There is a stark difference between the reaction of Democrats and Republicans. I am surprised by the lack of response from Democrats. Probably because they know that the Republicans are right. They would be fools not to use this as a platform for the midterm elections in November.
Shut Up and Dribble
Everything is racist. Even a mountain.
Jalen Rose, a basketball analyst for ESPN, decided to say that Mount Rushmore is racist and triggering for him. Here he is:

Maybe Jalen should learn a little history before he starts talking crap.
- The land was not “stolen” from the Native Americans”. It was either bought from them, like New York, or they were conquered. That’s how land is usually acquired.
- The Indian tribe that owned that land had to conquer another Indian tribe to own that land. And another tribe conquered that tribe. Native Americans always warred. Usually, the ended up enslaving or eating those they conquered. Indians were not peaceful.
- When you think of scalping, what civilization (and I use that term loosely) do you think of? Indians were brutal. They also didn’t give a damn about the environment. Examples of violence and destruction can be pointed to the Aztecs, Mayans and Incas.
- Smaller Indian tribes actually joined up with the colonists to fight against the more vicious tribes.
- Finally, people like this idiot always point to how 90% of the Indians were killed by the colonists. They fail to point out that the Indians killed over 30% of the colonists.
This is just some of the trivia about the barbarity of the Indians. I think Jalen should just shut up and dribble and stop talking about things he knows nothing about.
OK, This is Kind of Funny
This is just funny.
According to the New York Post:
Space may be closer than we think — perhaps even sitting on a charcuterie board.
Étienne Klein — a physicist and director at France’s Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission — shared the photo of the slice of cured meat on Twitter last week, gushing over the “level of detail” it provided.
“Picture of Proxima Centauri, the nearest star to the Sun, located 4.2 light years away from us. It was taken by the James Webb Space Telescope,” a translation of the tweet read. “This level of detail… A new world is unveiled everyday.”
He later tweeted an apology and a picture of the real galaxy. He tweeted:
“Well, when it’s cocktail hour, cognitive bias seem to find plenty to enjoy… Beware of it. According to contemporary cosmology, no object related to Spanish charcuterie exists anywhere else other than on Earth.
“In view of some comments, I feel compelled to clarify that this tweet showing an alleged snapshot of Proxima Centauri was a form of amusement,” he said in another tweet. “Let us learn to be wary of arguments from authority as much as of the spontaneous eloquence of certain images.”
I know he’s going to get into trouble, but I think this is funny.
