Episode 874 – Who’s Running Things?

The question of the week: Did Joe Biden know he was declaring a Trans Day of Visibility on Easter? This is an important question.

New York has a lot of traffic and has decided to make some scratch from it. God forbid they try to fix the problem.

And Megan Rapinoe really needs to find a happy during her retirement.

This Could Be a Problem

Joe Biden was asked during the Easter Roll at the White House how he could make Easter Sunday the official day of Trans Day of Visibility. This was his response:

Oops. This is a gaff one way or another. Some said he was answering another question. I didn’t hear another question because he was surrounded by people who were there for the event. The reporter was behind these people. So far, that statement has not been made clear. Even Snopes said the claim that Biden didn’t make the declaration is partly true.

Mike Johnson gave a rather blunt statement on Hannity that we all should be asking.

“Well, it’s his own signature on the document. That’s why we posted it. The evidence speaks for itself, as we used to say in the courtroom.

“[I]t’s highly possible that he doesn’t even know what he’s signing. [T]hat might be even more alarming.”

We already know he’s not running things. He’s being handed paper and he’s signing it.

We also know he’s not running his social media account. On Sunday, he released this statement on Twitter:

Today, on Transgender Day of Visibility, I have a simple message to all trans Americans: I see you. You are made in the image of God, and you’re worthy of respect and dignity.

This guy is no Catholic or is just stupid. These trans people are made from the image of God but think that God made a mistake. They are trying to change what God did. Trans people are actually damning and blaspheming God.


This Is Going to Improve Business Conditions

According to The Sun:

Transit officials approved a toll fee for travelers to drive into part of Manhattan has been approved by officials.

This approval sees that New York is on track to become the first US city with congestion tolls for drivers entering its central business district, The Associated Press reported.

Officials approved a $15 fee for most of the drivers that head to the busiest part of Manhattan.

Tolls are higher for larger vehicles, and lower for late-night entries into the city, as well as for motorcycles.

Earlier this week, members of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority board voted to greenlight the congestion pricing plan.

The toll plan is expected to go into effect in June.

The board only approved minor changes to a plan presented months ago.

But, it brushed off a number of requests for exceptions made by dozens of groups of drivers.

Supporters of the new tolls say it will push more people to use public transport.


She Needs a Hobby

According to Breitbart:

The 20-year-old Albert had reposted a video by a teen who faced serious mental health issues that caused him to think he might be transgender. The teen says that after he found God, he realized he was not trans and detransitioned.

But after being attacked by Rapinoe and her rabid gender ideology cohorts, Albert fell on her sword and apologized for posting the video.

“I want to sincerely apologize for my actions on social media,” Albert wrote in an Instagram story this week, according to U.S. News. “Liking and sharing posts that are offensive, insensitive, and hurtful was immature and disrespectful, which was never my intent.”

“I truly believe that everyone should feel safe and respected everywhere and on all playing fields. I know my actions have not lived up to that, and for that, I sincerely apologize. It’s an honor and a privilege to get to play this sport and on the world stage and I promise to do better,” she added.

Rapinoe had attacked Albert and pushed the false claim that “kids are literally killing themselves because of this hate.”

Indeed, more and more studies are finding that suicide threats increase after transitions and are not higher in trans-leaning teens before transition procedures.

Rapinoe, who retired from professional soccer last year, went all-in for transgender athletes after she was safely out of the game and did not have to face playing with men on her team or the teams of her opponents.

Many jumped to social media to blast Rapinoe for her hypocritical stance in favor of transgender athletes now that she is safely out of the game.


That’s Racism

According to the New York Post:

The University of California at Berkeley is under fire for allegedly banning white residents from using a community farm on Saturdays in a move one critic slammed as “systemic racism.”

The university told The Post it is investigating claims that the “Gill Tract Community Farm” in nearby Albany offered its space on Saturday exclusively to “Black, Indigenous, and People of Color,” after a complaint with the US Department of Education by the Mountain States Legal Foundation.

“UC-Berkeley thinks that racial segregation is progressive now, but it’s no different than segregation of the past,” said William Trachman, general counsel for the group.

“Preventing Caucasians from accessing Berkeley’s College of Natural Resources Farm on Saturdays is a clear violation of Title VI, which bars educational institutions from engaging in or allowing race discrimination,” added Trachman, a UC-Berkeley alumnus himself.

He said the feds should open a sweeping audit of every UC-Berkeley program to ferret out what he claimed was “systemic racism.”

Launched in 2013, the farm is a partnership between UC-Berkeley and the surrounding neighborhoods. Students and faculty conduct urban farming research and grow crops to prepare healthy meals as part of the “food justice” movement, according to the farm’s website.

The complaint includes an email from a farm program manager telling someone, “Saturdays are exclusively BIPOC. Exceptions have only been made for events that are BIPOC-centered and with plenty of advance notice and planning.”

“I trust you stand in solidarity with upholding boundaries around that safe and sacred space,” the farm manager said.

A UC-Berkeley rep said it had not be aware of the discrimination complaint until contacted by The Post, which provided a copy of it.

“The anonymous texts attached to the complaint have no specific information about time or place. And, as you can see, the Gill Tract’s website and calendar make no mention whatsoever of any program or activity of the sort described in the complaint,” said UC-Berkeley spokesman Dan Mogulof.

“Having said that, the university takes complaints like this extremely seriously and I can assure you that on Monday I will contact the appropriate people on campus in an effort to determine what the facts are,” he said.

The challenge to alleged UC-Berkeley’s segregated farming practice comes after the US Supreme Court ruled last June that colleges’ race-conscious or “affirmative action” admissions policies were unconstitutional and had to be scrapped.
