Episode 528 – Administration of Apathy

Jen Psaki addresses the Bishop Evans death and it’s less than satisfactory.

I have another reason why not to send your kids to college.

And everything is racist.

 

Sociopathic

Let’s go over this:

  • Specialist Bishop Evans jumps into the Rio Grande River to rescue a person crossing illegally over the border.
  • Evans goes under the water and that’s the last time he’s seen. A search begins to find the body because the National Guard said he was gone.
  • The two people he rescued turned out to be drug smugglers from a cartel.
  • That happened on Friday. There was no statement from the Biden administration. on Friday.
  • On Saturday, the Biden administration doesn’t say anything. The search for the body continues.
  • On Sunday, the Biden administration doesn’t say anything. The search for the body continues.
  • On Monday, the Biden administration doesn’t say anything. The body is found.

On Monday afternoon, with no comment from Joe Biden, Jen Psaki has her daily press conference. She is asked about Bishop Evans and this is what she says:

Oh, that’s your response? Really, Joe can’t express his outrage?

He had no problems “expressing” his outrage when Border Patrol was riding horses and it looked like the horse reigns got close to the illegal aliens as if they might be whipping them. And that’s the best response from this administration?

As of Tuesday, Joe Biden hasn’t said anything about this. Is it because it’s his fault? Well, a reporter asked Jen about that. Here’s her response:

Oh, so it’s Texas’ fault. Last I checked, border security was the job of the federal government. The job of the state government is to protect the state residents. So, if the federal government doesn’t do its job and the state citizens are facing danger from illegal aliens, and the state does something and someone does because the federal government didn’t do anything, its still the state’s fault?

Yeah, run on this. I know Republicans are.

By the way, so are Democrats in Texas, Arizona and Nevada. The same Arizona and Nevada that were purple states and will be red in November.

By the way, Joe Biden still hasn’t addressed this.

 

Speaking of the Border

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt announced Monday afternoon:

“In a lawsuit originally filed by Missouri, Louisiana, and Arizona, our Office just obtained a temporary restraining order to keep Title 42 in place. This is a huge victory for border security, but the fight continues on.”

Just a reminder, Title 42 is a Trump era policy that allows the Border Patrol to send captured illegal aliens back over the border due to the China virus. It was set to expire on May 23. DHS has estimated that, if the order ended, up to 18,000 people a day could cross the border. To give an example of the problem that could come about, we are currently being overwhelmed and only see about 6000 a day. The Border Patrol says the max they can deal with is about 1500 a day.

The Biden administration was going to let the policy end with putting any other rules in place, basically opening the borders. The Biden administration says it will respect the ruling.

In other border news, the Supreme Court is hearing arguments for the Migrant Protection Protocols better known as the Remain in Mexico policy. That law was also brought on by Trump to make it that people have to wait in Mexico while their asylum claims are being processed. The Biden cancelled that policy his first day in office but Texas and Missouri sued.

Those opposing the policy say it can create a dangerous situation for the migrants waiting in Mexico, where conditions aren’t always healthy or safe. DHS also says the program puts strain on the United States’ relationship with Mexico.

Those who like the policy say it is a useful deterrence to potential illegal aliens. It did work. Under this policy during the Trump administration, illegal immigration lowered to about 30,000 a month.

I don’t think any of this matters. The Biden administration has neutered the Border Patrol to the point they can’t stop anybody.

I’d Take That Class

According to the Daily Wire:

Westminster College in Salt Lake City, Utah, is still planning to offer a course studying hardcore pornography following an outpouring of backlash online, a representative from the private college said Thursday.

The May summer term class, “Gender 3000 – Porn,” has the description:

Hard core pornography is as American as apple pie and more popular than Sunday night football. Our approach to this billion-dollar industry is as both a cultural phenomenon that reflects and reinforces sexual inequalities (but holds the potential to challenge sexual and gender norms) and as an art form that requires serious contemplation. We will watch pornographic films together and discuss the sexualization of race, class, and gender as an experimental, radical art form.

Awesome. That will give the nerds something to do during the week besides playing video games and D&D. You know men will be taking this class in the hopes of finding some freakish female students. But you know this is going to be a sausage-fest because no chick would take a class like this.

I don’t have much to say about this except my grandchildren shouldn’t go to college.

That’s Racist Now?

According to KIRO7:

“Pot,” “weed,” “grass,” “Mary Jane,” “flower” — there is no shortage of terms to describe cannabis. However, Washington state is taking one word officially off the table: “marijuana.”

Legislators recently passed a law that changes every Revised Code of Washington with the word “marijuana.” The change gets rid of the term, swapping it out for the word “cannabis.”

Supporters say the word “marijuana” has a long history of racism.

According to Washington state Rep. Melanie Morgan:

“The term ‘marijuana’ itself is pejorative and racist. As recreational marijuana use became more popular, it was negatively associated with Mexican immigrants. Even though it seems simple because it’s just one word, the reality is we’re healing the wrongs that were committed against Black and Brown people around cannabis.”

Joy Hollingsworth, who own a couple of pot farms in Washington and sells it legally along with hemp products, testified in front of the Washington lawmakers:

“It had been talked about for a long time in our community about how that word demonizes the cannabis plant. It was … Anslinger that said and I quote, ‘Marijuana is the most violent causing drug in the history of mankind. And most marijuana users are Negroes, Hispanic, Caribbean, and entertainers. Their satanic music, jazz and swing results from marijuana usage.’”

The quote she’s referencing is by Harry Anslinger, who was the first commissioner of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics (which later became the Drug Enforcement Administration). He was involved in the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937, which banned selling or possessing weed.

You know, I am glad they are doing this simply because cannabis is a lot easier to spell than marijuana. Even as I was writing this script, I misspelled marijuana. I don’t even call it marijuana, I call it weed so this is no skin off my neck.

The term marijuana comes from Spanish Mexico where they grew the plant for the hemp, not to smoke it. It was also grown in Asia, parts of Europe and the United States for the hemp. It was called marijuana long before people figured out is could be smoked. The term wasn’t coined because it was a drug. So their logic is way off and getting rid of the name because some obscure politician in 1937 said that people of color or colored people (whichever term is politically correct) used it.

Also, by changing the name, aren’t they confirming that people of color are the ones using it? Aren’t they showing their own racism? Here’s the thing, I didn’t marry the term marijuana with black people. I never thought of it because I know a ton of white people that smoke it. It’s the Washington “woke” politicians that pointed it out to me.

Finally, don’t the politicians in Washington state have more important things to do? They have high crime, a homeless problem, a drug problem and their state is still suffering from damages over the 2020 riots. Maybe the politicians in Washington should worry about those problems.
