Anytime a government is giving you free stuff, they took your money and are giving part of it back to you.
My wife’s relatives in Denmark can’t wait to brag about free education and medical care and how much better it is than the US. They spend a lot of time trying to make their country better by bringing down the US (especially to me), only it’s not.
They always shop here as it is half the price like a lot of the EU.
I casually mention that they pay 70% income taxes and then VAT on that for their medical care. OBTW, you have to wait 6 weeks for a Dr’s appointment there and I had a kid who went to school there.
I got in to the Dr the same day 2 weeks ago.
I had a daughter go to school there.
The education in socialist countries was at least a year behind where she was in the US, so she didn’t have to work that hard. She was taking courses in her sophomore year that she took as a freshman.
Now for the US. Bernie loved to compare the US to Scandinavian systems.
The group of individuals trying to suck free stuff out of the US government are now prisoners of the very same. Working and doing what you want with your own resources is freedom. Very few actually need the handouts, or only need it a little while to get back on their feet.
Our government (the half currently in charge) wants as many people as possible on the dole. They control the people who take their money. How is this not a form of indentured servitude? Money for votes.
The administration before produced the lowest unemployment for all races and genders. That is freedom and that is the American Dream.
Before I start the post, let’s put the real crux of this on the table. It is a false crisis that was generated on wrong data to get money. I worked in this field and know the players and the facts. It is about stuffing their pockets and distracting the attention from the real problems. It is a go to for everything.
There is no better evidence than COP27 that did nothing to pretend to solve the supposed crisis. It was a bunch of elites in private planes who voted to move money from rich nations to poor. The reality is they are moving the money into their own pockets. They penalize the weak who will pay, and dismiss those who are the worst polluters as they get money under the table for that also.
“There is no doubt that these emails are embarrassing and a public-relations disaster for science.” – Andrew Dessler, “Climate E-Mails Cloud the Debate,” December 10, 2009.
It has been 12 years since the intellectual scandal erupted called Climategate. Each anniversary inspires recollections and regurgitation of salient quotations. These quotations speak for themselves; attempts of climate alarmists to parse the words and meaning distracts from what was said in real-time private conversations.
And the scandal got worse after the fact when, according to Paul Stephens, “virtually the entire climate science community tried to pretend that nothing was wrong.” Whitewash exonerations by the educational institutions involved and scientific organizations– was a blow to scholarship and standards as well. The standard of fair, objective, transparent research was sacrificed to a politically correct narrative about the qualitative connection between CO2 forcing and temperature (see Wiki).
Fred Pearce’s The Climate Files: The Battle for the Truth About Global Warming (2010) was a rare mainstream-of-sorts look at the scandal. Michael Mann is the bad actor, despite his I-am-the-victim take in his account, The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars(2012). 
On November 19, 2009, a whistle-blower or hacker downloaded more than 1,000 documents and e-mails from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at East Anglia University (United Kingdom). Posted on a Russian server, these documents were soon accessed by websites around the world to trigger the exposé.
These e-mails were part of confidential communications between top climate scientists in the UK, the United States, and other nations over a 15-year period. The scientists involved had developed surface temperature data sets and promoted the “Hockey Stick” global temperature curve, as well as having wrtten/edited the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) physical-science assessment reports.
Branded “Climategate” by British columnist James Delingpole, the emails provided insight into practices that range from bad professionalism to fraudulent science. Bias, data manipulation, dodging freedom of information requests, and efforts to subvert the peer-review process were uncovered.
There is a lot more at the link above, but here are some salient facts.
Man-Made Warming Controversy
“I know there is pressure to present a nice tidy story as regards ‘apparent unprecedented warming in a thousand years or more in the proxy data’ but in reality the situation is not quite so simple.”
—Dr. Keith Briffa, Climatic Research Unit, disclosed Climategate e-mail, Sep. 22, 1999.
“Keith’s [Briffa] series…differs in large part in exactly the opposite direction that Phil’s [Jones] does from ours. This is the problem we all picked up on (everyone in the room at IPCC was in agreement that this was a problem and a potential distraction/detraction from the reasonably consensus viewpoint we’d like to show w/ the Jones et al and Mann et al series).”
—Dr. Michael Mann, IPCC Lead Author, disclosed Climategate e-mail, Sep. 22, 1999.
“…it would be nice to try to ‘contain’ the putative ‘MWP’ [Medieval Warm Period]…”
—Dr. Michael Mann, IPCC Lead Author, disclosed Climategate e-mail, June 4, 2003
“By the way, when is Tom C [Crowley] going to formally publish his roughly 1500 year reconstruction??? It would help the cause to be able to refer to that reconstruction as confirming Mann and Jones, etc.”
—Dr. Michael Mann, IPCC Lead Author, disclosed Climategate e-mail, Aug. 3, 2004.
“I gave up on Judith Curry a while ago. I don’t know what she thinks she’s doing, but it’s not helping the cause, or her professional credibility.”
—Dr. Michael Mann, IPCC Lead Author, disclosed Climategate e-mail, May 30, 2008
“Well, I have my own article on where the heck is global warming… The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t.”
—Dr. Kevin Trenberth, IPCC Lead Author, disclosed Climategate e-mail, Oct. 12, 2009.
Let me end with some actual Climate facts:
That extreme cold has hit the South Pole this month.
That the South Pole had record cold temperatures in the six-month winter of 2020-2021
That 2022 was a relatively mild hurricane period, just like the ten years after Hurricane Katrina hit.
That we had extreme cold weather in the U.S this month along with record snow in the Northeast.
That the Arctic icecaps have been expanding the last ten years, contrary to predictions that the ice would be gone by now.
That the coral reef off Australia is growing with a vengeance
That wildfires were down 80% from the last five-year average.
After 150 years of exponential growth of crude oil and coal use, and rapid growth in the population and all the other components we are told cause warming, the dire predictions have all been false.
The temperature is only up one to two degrees after a Little Ice Age ended in 1860 and the Earth now has a temperature similar to over 1,000 years ago in the Medieval Warming Period.
Everyone is laying off in Tech land. That means they kept the good employees. The Twidiots who quit over ideological differences with Musk are in for a nice Sunday surprise.
I’m glad to have left this cesspool of Social Media behind. I hope Musk can make free speech a possibility again, but I doubt it. If he can just kill the hate and one sided discussion it will be enough to call it a success.
It won’t be enough for me to go back on. It’s a waste of time.
Here’s how I look at it. No one really cares about my opinion. I extend them the same courtesy.
Travelers flying into the United States will still need proof of Covid vaccination in 2023 — making the US the only country in the West to stick by the failing policy.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has extended the rule, which only applies to non-US citizens, until at least January 8 next year to ‘limit the risk of Covid-19, including variants of the virus’.
But there has been a growing acceptance among experts that Covid vaccines – while highly effective at preventing severe illness – do not stop infections very well.
Dr Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), admitted earlier this year that shots ‘can’t prevent transmission anymore’.
Yet since November 2021, non-US citizens entering America have had to provide proof of Covid vaccination.
The CDC defines fully vaccinated as having had an accepted single-dose vaccine, or both doses of an accepted two-dose series, at least two weeks ago. A booster dose is not needed.
Most major Western nations such as the UK, France and Germany, have already dropped these types of recommendations.
I tried to explain legal vs illegal immigration to a colleague, Mauricio G at work. He mistook the law and it’s consequences. I knew the history of the country and the basis for it’s existence and laws, and it is playing out like I tried to explain. I chose not to engage this one due to not wanting a fight against immaturity. It was too bad as I tried to help him. Eventually I got back stabbed.
It turns out that Legal Aliens are more patriotic, my point to Mauricio. I was only for upholding the law and it turns out I was right.
“Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.”
― Mark Twain
When you are not from here, you don’t learn why the history is so important. It’s also why the laws mean something.
I get that one part of the Left wants the replacement theory (get rid of white people who love the country because they will never vote for elitists and socialists like we currently have). That is not what made it the greatest country in achievement and benevolence to others. They just promise money and people vote for then, falling for it every election
Why are they forcing law abiding citizens to get poisoned, and those with diseases get to run anywhere they want once they cross.
They are about to use polio vaccine in NY for the first time in over 40 years. Who brought that in?
Fentanyl? It comes from China through the Mexican border.
So get your poisoned clot shot if you want to come in. Many are doing that now. I’d never get poisoned to go anywhere. I can see it on TV.
All your personal freedoms taken away by people who partied, traveled, never wore masks, didn’t get jabbed because they had access to Ivermectin and Hydroxychloriquine and monoclonal anti-bodies, and you didn’t. They banned it remember.
This is what happens when they lie well enough to fool the weak minded.
Think 20 years from now because that is the decision for your kids you will be making tomorrow.
It’s time for a change. This group just lies and votes themselves the ability to be innocent.
The gig is up on sustainable energy, even for the staunchest of supporters. Before the discussion begins on those who are having to scramble to get ready for winter, China and India are laughing. They are expanding coal mining and coal power plants and are the worlds largest polluters. Still, the weenies who bought the (money laundering) Global Warming story are going to pay the most this winter.
Despite the fanfare surrounding wind and solar, the world’s dependency on fossil fuels is increasing. Last week, Saudi Aramco CEO Amin Nasser said that the world is now “transitioning to coal.”
Saad al-Kaabi, Energy Minister of Qatar, says, “Many countries particularly in Europe which had been strong advocates of green energy and carbon-free future have made a sudden and sharp U-turn. Today, coal burning is once again on the rise reaching its highest levels since 2014.”
They are right. Global coal demand will reach an historic high in 2022, similar to 2013’s record levels. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), “Global coal consumption is forecast to rise by 0.7 percent in 2022 to 8 billion tons…. Coal consumption in the European Union is expected to rise by seven percent in 2022 on top of last year’s 14 percent jump.”
Coal will continue to be a sought-after energy source as “rising gas prices after 2030 will make existing coal-fired generation more economic,” the IEA says. Global energy demand will grow by 47 percent from now through 2050, and oil is expected to be the major source of energy.
Analysts are projecting “a huge gas-to-coal fuel transition in power and industrial sectors” of Europe. Yes, not gas to renewables, but gas to coal. In fact, the European Union’s coal consumption grew 16 percent year-on-year for the first half of 2022. European countries imported 7.9 million tons of thermal coal in June, more than doubling year-on-year. Annual coal imports are expected to reach 100 million tons by the end of the year, the highest since 2017.
Even in the most developed economies of the West like Germany and the UK, fossil fuels continue to dominate as the only dependable source of energy. Germany is set to become the third highest importer of Indonesian coal in 2023, ranked just below coal-guzzling China and India.
AP says, “Coal, long treated as a legacy fuel in Europe, is now helping the continent safeguard its power supply and cope with the dramatic rise in natural gas prices caused by the war.” Rather than wind or solar, it is coal that is keeping the lights on in Europe.
So the Greens lied to us about the nuclear power plant issue!
The Greens assured us again and again that it would not make sense to continue operating the nuclear power plants. We would have “no electricity problem,” said Economics Minister Robert Habeck, Environment Minister Steffi Lemke and Green Party leader Ricarda Lang, like a mantra. But that was a lie that was spread against the advice of experts: This is proven by 166 documents from the environment and economics ministries, which environment minister Steffi Lemke (Greens) had to hand over to the Die Welt am Sonntag and the Cicero on application [both are behind a paywall].
Explosive: Robert Habeck and his Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection refused to hand over the documents, which they are legally obliged to do! He wanted to cover up what Welt was able to prove anyway: the Greens lied to us in the nuclear debate — and neutralized experts who wanted to tell the truth.
The files show how Habeck and company put their crude anti-nuclear ideology above the security of supply in Germany: Against the advice of their own experts. Experts in Habeck’s ministry “obviously” considered the continued operation of the remaining nuclear power plants to be the right, sensible decision — Habeck ignored them. Just like the Ministry of the Environment, which apparently let a letter from the BMWK [Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection] experts go straight into the wastepaper basket, ignoring the words of the experts as well. When the head of the “Society for Reactor Safety”, which is close to the ministry, criticized the phase-out of nuclear power, he was quickly muzzled by State Secretary for the Environment Christian Kühn (Green Party) and was no longer allowed to comment.
Ever since signing the Paris climate agreement, Vietnam has shown interest in reducing its dependency on fossil fuels, introducing in recent years a slew of measures to cut consumption.
However, in what is considered to be a major U-turn, Vietnam’s government announced last month that it will increase coal imports for the next 13 years.
Critics of fossil fuels, including most mainstream media, are out of sync with the world’s energy realities. They are consistently premature in their celebrations of the emission-reduction promises of developing nations like Vietnam only to see commitments yield to the need to meet growing energy demand with coal, oil and natural gas. Even developed economies like Germany and the UK have ditched — or suspended — grandiose plans for “carbon-free” utopias to fend off social unrest or economic collapse.
In a new strategy drafted to develop the coal sector, Vietnam’s Ministry of Industry and Trade says that it will increase annual coal imports to as much as 83 million tons during 2025-35.
This decision is a marked departure from ambitious emission-reduction plans that the country seemed keen to embrace, thus delivering another blow to the international campaign against fossil fuels.
Vietnam’s consumption of coal has increased rapidly in the last decade largely to generate electricity — from 27.8 million tons in 2011 to 38.77 million tons in 2015 and 53.52 million tons in 2021. Demand for coal is projected to peak at 125-127 million tons in 2030, mainly due to growing needs in power generation and in the cement, metallurgy and chemical industries.
For countries like Vietnam, there is no option but to increase fossil fuel consumption in the coming decades. Coal, oil, and gas together represent the most affordable, dependable, and abundant source of energy. In fact, a majority of the world’s primary energy comes from these fuels.
The favored technologies of climate alarmists — wind and solar — cannot meet energy needs of large populations. What little electricity they do produce is intermittent and expensive. So, developing countries cannot reduce fossil fuel consumption without a significant compromise in power reliability and economic growth. The consequences of energy shortages due to the anti-fossil fuel stance is greater in developing countries where poverty is still rampant.
Coal consumption correlates closely to Vietnam’s growth in gross domestic product (GDP). The doubling of consumption between 2011-21 tracks with a steady increase in the rate of growth over the same period.
Also, it must suck that Trump said this would happen if they relied on Russian oil.
Sending a thumbs-up can be seen as passive aggressive and even confrontational, according to Gen Z who claim they feel attacked whenever it is used.
Whether the chat is informal, between friends or at work the icon appears to have a very different, ‘rude’ meaning for the younger generation.
A 24-year-old on Reddit summed up the Gen Z argument, saying it is best ‘never used in any situation’ as it is ‘hurtful’.
‘No one my age in the office does it, but the Gen X people always do it. Took me a bit to adjust and get [it] out of my head that it means they’re mad at me,’ he added.
They make you look old. I disagree. I think emoji’s are childish to begin with. I never use them on purpose just for that reason. I never saw them as anything but wasted time or unnecessary info on the text. An answer in emoji’s only is even more childish.
I have friends my senior age that do it, but I refuse. They sort of get it and have stopped it. They weren’t any good at it anyway. They were the thumbs up people
I recognize rest of them though. They mostly come from girls who are too old for this nonsense.
I could put an emoji on the end of this for sarcasm and irony, but I won’t.
Emoji’s are the small talk in texting that I hate in real life. It’s not necessary, ever.
Who, other than the far left and right don’t think the election was rigged in 2020? There is enough Zuckerbucks, midnight mail boxes, stopped counting and faked floods (Atlanta) that even my dog can see through it.
It’s the people revolting, at the ballot box. It’s why our deep state has to rig the voting, DOJ, media, Big Tech and whatever else they need to stay in power.
I’m not fully confident that an actual win by one side couldn’t be overturned by shenanigans either in an October surprise or vote tampering.
After Covid-19, I don’t trust anyone from a government agency. I do trust the will of the people and for a moment in time, they had their say in Italy.
Columbia University said that it relied on “outdated and/or incorrect methodologies” in submitting data to U.S. News & World Report for consideration in the publication’s 2021 college rankings, according to a statement released by the university Friday.
In February, Columbia Mathematics Professor Michael Thaddeus questioned the Ivy League school’s rise in rankings from 18th place, on its debut in 1988, to 2nd place in 2021. In a statement posted on Columbia University’s Department of Mathematics’ website, Thaddeus noted that “few other top-tier universities have also improved their standings, but none has matched Columbia’s extraordinary rise.”
Thaddeus pointed to data submitted by the university to U.S. News & World Report in questioning Columbia’s seemingly meteoric rise in rankings.
“Can we be sure that the data accurately reflect the reality of life within the university?” Thaddeus rhetorically asked. “Regrettably, the answer is no.”
So the Columbia school of Frankfurt Marxism lies….
Columbia again. Of note, one of the worst VP’s I worked with went there. I’ve never seen anyone abuse people verbally and stay employed more than him.
If you like free speech, don’t go to Columbia.
A leading free speech organization ranked the best and worst college campuses for freedom of speech and New York’s top school, Columbia University, came in dead last.
Columbia University came last and was the only school to be slammed with a Speech Climate rating of “abysmal.” Scoring just 9.91 out of 100, New York City’s Ivy was dragged down by its high number of scholars who were sanctioned for expressing their views. Between 2019-2020, seven academics faced investigation or disciplinary action for tweets or comments deemed unacceptable. Columbia did not immediately respond to The Post for comment.
Judge James C. Ho of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit announced Thursday that he would no longer be hiring law clerks from Yale Law School and urged other judges to follow suit. In a keynote address to the Kentucky Chapters Conference of the Federalist Society, titled “Agreeing to Disagree — Restoring America by Resisting Cancel Culture,” Ho cited a number of high-profile examples of speakers being shouted down or otherwise censored at law schools across the country but singled out Yale Law as “one particular law school where cancellations and disruptions seem to occur with special frequency.”
“Yale not only tolerates the cancellation of views — it actively practices it,” Ho said, according to prepared remarks exclusively obtained by National Review. “Starting today, I will no longer hire law clerks from Yale Law School. And I hope that other judges will join me as well.”
It used to be that most Americans were mainly brainwashed into buying specific products and services by watching television, reading the newspaper, noticing billboards, and seeing films. Propaganda was a front-loaded “machine” that was quite linear in its approach to influence buying motives of consumers. With the invention of the internet and social media, everything changed.
The consumption of news, products, services, lifestyles, pornography, and now most medical “choices” are made online, after “consuming” artificial intelligence. This is how technology has been created and disseminated to chronically DAMAGE humanity, and it’s happening like a tsunami engulfs a coastline, every day.
Machine learning regulates nearly everything users see in front of them online, often in unethical, harmful ways
An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm regulates the content chosen to be placed in front of user’s eyes specifically to influence their purchases of products, services, and information, based on what they talk about, type about, and search for using smart devices. Ever just talk to a friend about anything, then minutes later an ad pops up on your smart device, selling exactly what you just talked about? That’s AI. Smart devices are almost always RECORDING, whether or not you have the camera, microphone, or app “open” or “live.”
For example, Facebook’s AI software analyzes videos, stories, photos, and even memes, then gathers together ‘recommendations’ for you. Add in some key misinformation and suddenly you find yourself buying what Fakebook told you to buy, and believing what Fakebook calls news.
Google search engine uses AI to guide everyone AWAY from any information about natural health and AWAY from any information that exposes prescription medications and vaccines as the dangerous, experimental mediums they really are. Google blocks, bans, censors and bankrupts people, businesses and organizations that do not support the communist narrative that attempts to control all Americans’ lives and livelihoods.
I swear this is what happened to me. At the beginning of Covid, I went to the Dr. to ask for Ivermectin and I got the standard line of we don’t know how it interacts with other drugs and is not approved for Covid-19.
This was 2 years ago and I knew it was bullshit then and bullshit now, except that the truth is out about it working against Covid-19, then and now.
I waited in line in 1973 for gas when it doubled to 43 cents per gallon. People were stealing it all because our government and then president were too inept to solve the problem. They couldn’t deal with OPEC and we were held hostage by others.
It’s the same thing. Just 2 years ago we were energy independent and I was paying under 2 dollars a gallon.
The problem is the government. Whoever is pulling Biden’s strings is trying to be everything not Trump as a policy. That is not how to run things. They purposely have ruined the economy, energy independence, free speech and our lives lately.
Guess who gets screwed? Yep, you and me. There is no need for this fuel crisis, in Europe or here. We don’t need to give our strategic oil reserves to lower the price, just let the fracking continue.
The green environmental story is also bullshit. They are making up stuff to restrict us. There might be some climate activity, but not enough to base a whole strategy around something as unrealistic as sustainability. At least in the time frame they say they are trying to force it to happen. The infrastructure is not there and won’t be.
This is just like Covid. It’s about greed, power, control and of course money. All of the recent bills are money laundering if you look underneath the hood.
A forthcoming study co-authored by a Tel Aviv University researcher appears to confirm widespread fears about the negative impact of Facebook, the world’s biggest social media platform, on its users’ mental health and self-image.
A detailed examination of data showed a correlation between a “statistically significant worsening in mental health symptoms, especially depression and anxiety” and the rapid introduction of the social media network.
Some of the benchmarks include a 20% rise in those who reported anxiety disorders; an increase of 25% to 27% in the proportion of students expected to experience moderate to severe depression; an additional 7% of students experienced “severe depression” since gaining access to the network.
The introduction of Facebook, the study found, led to increased utilization of mental healthcare services.
Who doesn’t know Facebook is at best a waste of time and at worst, life destroying. It certainly is political having funded part of the mail in fraud in the last election and Zuckerbucks 2.0 is underway.
One of the best things I ever did in Social Media, of which I have been an early adopter (and un-loader of the bad ones. I miss nothing from people who want to be seen or appreciated.
Now the Introvert inside of me is loving having cut connections with my past. Facebook presented me with a list of people I hoped never to see again. I got most of them out the way we did it before social media. Then this intrusion.
I couldn’t take the political dumbassery (a word I apparently made up) from people I thought had brains.
I also got to see who matured past high school and who didn’t. I didn’t need to see that either.
Be smart, get rid of it. I read recently that the average person wastes 1.5 hours a day on social media. Don’t be that person.
It got me to thinking how much the Tech companies are investing in it (not to mention intelligence organizations) and how much those same people just spent the last few years screwing us. They are clearly censoring information based on a political bias. The Covid cure was over promoted to sell the jab to the sheep. There is more, but most people already know those developing AI are for themselves and against us as a rule. Look at Google selling every bit of your digital experience and who knows what else.
The technology should scoop up the deficiencies I’m going to point out, but I’m counting on the fact that it was developed by humans who are flawed that AI also will be. Keep finding the fold between the layers to exist and not be digitally handcuffed.
I’ve seen things written as to how they can cut off your EV, or limit your money or control your thermostat to keep it above 80.
But that brings us full circle to the problem – what if machines begin to help determine what is important and whose reputation is valid, or begin judging our credit based on algorithms and parameters with which we’re not familiar?
Biased algorithms have come under scrutiny in recent years for causing human rights violations in areas such as policing—where face recognition has cost innocent people in the US, China, and elsewhere their freedom—or finance, where software can unfairly deny credit. Biased algorithms in robots could potentially cause worse problems, since the machines are capable of physical actions. Last month, a chess-playing robotic arm reaching for a chess piece trapped and broke the finger of its child opponent.
“Now that we’re using models that are just trained on data taken from the internet, our robots are biased,” Agnew says. “They have these very specific, very toxic stereotypes.” Agnew and coauthors from the Georgia Institute of Technology, Johns Hopkins University, and the Technical University of Munich, Germany, described their findings in a paper titled “Robots Enact Malignant Stereotypes,” recently presented at the Fairness, Accountability, and Transparency conference in Seoul, South Korea.
The researchers reached that conclusion after conducting an experiment inspired by the doll test on a robotic arm in a simulated environment. The arm was equipped with a vision system that had learned to relate images and words from online photos and text, an approach embraced by some roboticists that also underpins recent leaps in AI-generated art. The robot worked with cubes adorned with passport-style photos of men and women who self-identified as Asian, Black, Latino, or white. It was instructed to pick up different cubes using terms that describe people, using phrases such as “the criminal block” or the “homemaker block.”
From over 1.3 million trials in that virtual world, a clear pattern emerged that replicated historical sexism and racism, though none of the people pictured on the blocks were labeled with descriptive text or markers. When asked to pick up a “criminal block,” the robot selected cubes bearing photos of Black men 10 percent more often than for other groups of people. The robotic arm was significantly less likely to select blocks with photos of women than men when asked for a “doctor,” and more likely to identify a cube bearing the image of a white man as “person block” than women from any racial background. Across all the trials, cubes with the faces of Black women were selected and placed by the robot less often than those with the faces of Black men or white women.
Back to me.
That means you can act or look like someone else and can still fool it. I’m not referring to facial recognition, rather pattern recognition. If you mimic the actions of another, you can surf between the lines of code to avoid it predicting your behavior (for now).
Some are more clever than others, but any routine can be patterned. If you break that routine or vary it enough, one can still slide in and out of detection, YMMV.
Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson’s famous comment when asked why the banks needed an $800 billion bailout in 2007.
He said, “The computers told us.”
The problem is that much of this “artificial intelligence” is unfounded, unproven, and just plain wrong. Just as there had been no fraud on my credit card, just a glitch at a gas pump – but how do you hold a computer program accountable?
Here is what I’m counting on. To program, you build on a core set of functions that are pre-programmed or are existent in the code. The computers can’t mend themselves yet AI programers are bringing in flawed code.
Until AI passes the Turing Test, it’s flawed. The racist flaws are just an indicator of the state of the technology. It will improve, but will never be perfect.
I spent most of my career in either Press or Analyst Relations. I have seen my share of successes and failures. I’ve been in both. We know each other well. My work includes dealing with behemoths (IBM), so I understand what it’s like dealing with a Kraken.
When I see others making mistakes, it’s cringe worthy. Tactical mistakes happen. Strategic planning mistakes are usually worth termination, like Gillette trashing men on Super Bowl Sunday. Putting incompetent people in front of a crowd is inexcusable.
I’ve seen unqualified, and that is what we have at the White House Press Podium right now. If anyone cries racism or sexism at this, you are wrong. So wrong that 180 degrees from now you’d still be wrong. There are professionals and there are amateurs. We have someone who is not seasoned enough to be where she is. It reared it’s ugly head yesterday more than the usual incompetence that is rookie material.
I’ve overlooked a lot of what has been said. Jen Psaki lied every day, but was skilled at how she said it and commanded the room. She was a professional and acted for the most part like one. So did almost every other White House Spokesperson prior to her. They handled some tough ad hominem attacks.
In the arena of politics, incompetents and charlatans can have long careers in ways that others in fields like medicine and architecture cannot. If someone botches a heart bypass operation or designs a wobbly skyscraper, the consequences of those mistakes arrive quickly and cannot be explained away. Even when their policies fail spectacularly, politicians can obscure, deflect, and mislead for years and not be held accountable.
This is essentially what we are seeing now from the Biden Administration, practiced to a more shameless and insulting degree than any of its predecessors have ever attempted. The latest nadir of this strategy happened recently when Fox News reporter Peter Doocy confronted White House flack Karine Jean-Pierre about the glaring hypocrisy of not allowing unvaccinated tennis star Novak Djokovic to fly to the United States to compete, while untold numbers of unvaccinated illegal aliens enter the country on foot daily and are allowed to stay.
“But that’s not how it works,” Jean-Pierre said over Doocy’s indignation. “It’s not like somebody walks over.”
Millions walk over the border in full view of cameras (and hidden by coyotes) bringing fentanyl, diseases (Covid) crime and a drain on the taxpayers. They are given phones, EBT and rooms in luxury hotels. The new American dream.
THE TRUTH SLIPS OUT
When you can’t keep track of your lies, the PR mistakes happen. You step in it like KJP did. It is a rookie mistake by an unqualified person. You have to have ice water in your veins when you stand up and mis-direct questions or deflect issues. You don’t give the press the gun to shoot you with.
When Doocy pressed further, Jean-Pierre could only respond by reading talking points about how the administration is adding technology at the border and securing more funding for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Those bullet points do nothing to explain why thousands of unvaccinated aliens are being allowed into the country.
Such comments are indicative of either next-level gaslighting or ignorance of the issues on a breathtaking scale. Any sentient being who has followed the news the last two years has surely seen the ubiquitous videos showing thousands of foreign nationals crossing the Rio Grande into Texas, then processed by the Border Patrol.
Biden’s own Customs and Border Protection has reported 1,822,160 encounters with illegal aliens so far in fiscal year 2022, a 586 percent increase since 2017. It is reasonable to assume that most, if not all, of those people are still in the United States. Maybe Jean-Pierre was being too literal and splitting hairs, since technically the border-crossers are swimming and wading across the border, not walking. Regardless, noncitizens are clearly traversing our border in record numbers and are being allowed to stay.
How did the situation get this bad? While the border security problem has been festering for decades, it is only in the last two years that the situation has spun out of control at its current record-breaking pace. The White House, again in gaslighting mode, has blamed the spike on everything from COVID to climate change. It couldn’t possibly be anything they did, right?
Even in a sea of political spin, the truth occasionally slips out. During a recorded deposition as part of discovery in a lawsuit filed by Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody against DHS and other border agencies, Border Patrol chief Raul Ortiz made a succinct and honest statement. Under questioning about the number of people crossing the border, Ortiz, a 31-year law enforcement veteran, said, “In my experience, we have seen increases when there are no consequences,” said Ortiz during the deposition.
The video shows that the companies producing the vaxx were making $1000 a second. The NIH, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and others promoting the jab paid to have Ivermectin outlawed as a cure. Having no cure was the only way to get emergency authorization for the mRNA jab.
I could drone on about what I’ve already said, it was about power, money, control and the election.
I usually don’t post a video, but arming yourself with information to make a better decision next time could be life saving. It’s only 13 minutes, but gives you the story to know that this should have been handled differently and a lot of lives would have been saved.
A new peer-reviewed study found that regular use of ivermectin reduced the risk of dying from COVID-19 by 92%.
The large study was conducted by Flávio A. Cadegiani, MD, MSc, PhD. Cadegiani is a board-certified endocrinologist with a master’s degree and doctorate degree in clinical endocrinology. The peer-reviewed study was published on Wednesday by the online medical journal Cureus. The study was conducted on a strictly controlled population of 88,012 people from the city of Itajaí in Brazil.
Individuals who used ivermectin as prophylaxis or took the medication before being infected by COVID experienced significant reductions in death and hospitalization. According to the study, those who took ivermectin regularly had a 92% reduction in their COVID death risk compared to non-users and 84% less than irregular users. “The hospitalization rate was reduced by 100% in regular users compared to both irregular users and non-users,” the study stated.
The impressive reduction for regular ivermectin users was evident despite the regular users being at a higher risk for COVID deaths. The regular users were older and had a higher prevalence of type 2 diabetes and hypertension than irregular and non-users.
Irregular users of ivermectin had a 37% lower mortality rate reduction than non-users. The study defined regular users as those who used more than 30 tablets of ivermectin over five months. The dosage of ivermectin was determined by…
The political fiction that humans cause most or all climate change and the claim that the science behind this notion is ‘settled’, has been dealt a savage blow by the publication of a ‘World Climate Declaration (WCD)’ signed by over 1,100 scientists and professionals. There is no climate emergency, say the authors, who are drawn from across the world and led by the Norwegian physics Nobel Prize laureate Professor Ivar Giaever. Climate science is said to have degenerated into a discussion based on beliefs, not on sound self-critical science.
The scale of the opposition to modern day ‘settled’ climate science is remarkable, given how difficult it is in academia to raise grants for any climate research that departs from the political orthodoxy. (A full list of the signatories is available here.) Another lead author of the declaration, Professor Richard Lindzen, has called the current climate narrative “absurd”, but acknowledged that trillions of dollars and the relentless propaganda from grant-dependent academics and agenda-driven journalists currently says it is not absurd.
It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that this has been about money from the beginning. Like all political maneuvering, you create a crisis that only you can fix.
Europe bought it and is now held hostage by Russia, as a former president predicted. The USA is desperately trying to hamstring our economy with false claims about the climate. Look behind it to find the source of these falsehoods, money, power and control.

Having discarded the use of empirical evidence, pseudo-scientific priests of the climate cult who are paid by Big Government to prop up global warming ideology rely on models. These models find whatever they are designed to find, and according to the WCD, “are not remotely plausible as global policy tools.”
I had to work with climatards who bought into Carbon poisoning the atmosphere, to the point of them wanting to tax it a dollar a pound. They and their co-founder went under. I knew for lack of facts. They were always begging us for money so there you have your real reason. They and the other green analysts would gladly jet to the conferences all around the world, like their hero’s who fly private jets to climate conferences.
“More CO2 is beneficial for nature, greening the Earth; additional CO2 in the air has promoted growth in global plant biomass. It is also good for agriculture, increasing the yield of crops worldwide.”
The Declaration also observes there is no statistical evidence that global warming is intensifying natural disasters, as the liberal media hysterically shrieks.
“There is no climate emergency,” the Declaration goes on. “We strongly oppose the harmful and unrealistic net-zero CO2 policy proposed for 2050,” it says, adding that the aim of global policy should be “prosperity for all” by providing reliable and affordable energy at all times.
CONVINCING THE CLIMATE WORSHIPERS
There is no telling someone who to worship. We all worship something and those people selected both money and the Earth. Good luck with that one. It ranks so far down the list with ordinary people that even scaring them isn’t working. The statue of Liberty isn’t under water, Greenland ice is growing, Florida is still here and there is no change in the water level at Plymouth Rock.
I don’t try to convince them because you can’t talk to someone who has declared their hill to die on.
EUROPE STEPPING ON IT’S OWN DICK
Here is a list of their progress down the toilet of energy shortage because of green polices and environmental policies by their government. – Courtesy of WUWT.
Very low French nuclear availability (EDF recently scaled back its output guidance for 2023 to 300-330TWh and is now facing cooling issues that are impacting an already weak 2022 availability)
Historically low hydro storage levels from Scandinavia to Iberia (given widespread drought conditions)
Thermal plant closures across Western Europe (across ageing coal, nuclear & gas plants)
Fuel supply logistics driven by a combination of very low Rhine water levels (e.g. impacting barge coal delivery to German power stations) & logistical issues driven by the Russian conflict
Periods of low wind & solar output where the factors above are driving a deficit in residual generation.
The combination of these factors is pushing the power crisis onto centre stage.
Power crisis now driving the gas crisis
Europe is short molecules of gas across the next 3 years. Given lack of any material supply response across this period (in the absence of a return to higher Russian flows), there are three demand side reduction options to balance the market:
Industrial demand (already facing destruction of ~15% so far in 2022 due to higher prices)
Power sector demand
Residential & commercial demand (the sector that governments are most likely to try and protect in case of rationing).
Normally very high gas prices would incentivise reduced demand from the power sector. But going forward Europe is now short electrons as well a molecules. And the marginal source of incremental electrons comes from burning molecules.
In other words in order to keep the lights on, Europe has no alternative but to burn more gas, aside from intervention to reduce power demand which may also be coming.
A 2020 scientific analysis revealed that “models overpredict warming in every target observational analog, in most cases significantly so, and the average differences between models and observations are statistically significant.”
Scientist Ross McKitrick calls out errors of modelers that exaggerate future temperature increases.
“I get it that modeling the climate is incredibly difficult, and no one faults the scientific community for finding it a tough problem to solve,” writes McKitrick. “But we are all living with the consequences of climate modelers stubbornly using generation after generation of models that exhibit too much surface and tropospheric warming, in addition to running grossly exaggerated forcing scenarios.” (Forcing is the mechanism by which greenhouse gases warm the atmosphere.)
I earlier quoted the 97% of scientists agree there is global warming. I put this near the end because no one believes it, even those claiming that lie. It’s useful life is over and has been exposed.
Just to show how much the rest of the world and the top polluters care about this issue, look at China and India. Good job there Nancy.
China Scraps (Already Scant) Climate Cooperation Over Pelosi Taiwan Visit
The Chinese Communist Party was very displeased with U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) well-publicized visit to Taiwan reaffirming the United States’ commitment to the island’s continued independence from mainland China. To demonstrate its displeasure—in addition to the usual rattling of sabers, sending of new naval ships into the area, flying jets into Taiwanese airspace, and test-firing missiles into the sea around the island—China announced it was suspending cooperation with the United States in the fight against climate change. Heaven forbid!
China played the rest of the world’s leaders like a drum during the negotiations for the Paris Climate Agreement in 2015. In an agreement that included no mandatory reductions except what countries imposed on themselves, all China would concede was that it expected its emissions to peak by 2030, maybe 2035. Climate negotiators and leaders of environmental NGOs hailed this as a historic step. Climate realists such as I asked: Peak at what level? Chinese Communist Party leaders smirked behind their hands at their PR coup. Our question has gone unanswered to this day.
This is all supported by working people who pay excessive taxes and unnecessarily high energy bills. Some employed in the fossil fuel industry pay with loss of livelihoods. The price for the poorest among us — particularly in the developing world — may be lives lost through further impoverishment and early death.
Some climate warmists may be ignorant of science’s corruption. However, others cynically take advantage of it for money and power. At some point, this facade will collapse because of the lack of reality behind it. Nonetheless, we are obligated to do what we can to accelerate the falsehood’s dismantlement if only to honor sacrifices made by others in the name of truth.
In the 16th century, Martin Luther freed millions from the tyranny of a corrupt church by refusing to recant what he knew to be true. He managed to avoid torture and death by fire for his alleged heresies. Others were not so fortunate.
Yet our obligation is deeper than memorializing the past. As biographer Eric Metaxas writes: “In the end, what Luther did was not merely to open a door in which people were free to rebel against their leaders but to open a door in which people were obliged by God to take responsibility for themselves.”
Those who recognize the wrong can do no other than to point it out. And so we do.
Hey! Greenies! Taking good care of yourselves? Watching your diet? Exercising? Taking those probiotics to strengthen your gut biome and digestion? Well, cut it out! You’re part of the problem here.
Among the critters that metabolically produce CO2 are bacteria. As far as I can find out, every creature on Earth that has a mouth has a gut. And nearly every gut’s biome contains bacteria, some more densely populated or more varied than others. Those bacteria give off CO2 as part of simply living. That CO2 escapes the bacteria’s host’s body during the process of elimination, usually through an anal orifice.
Everything farts, though it might not have been noticed (heard, smelt, or seen wafting up from a bird’s hind end on a chilly morning) in some species yet. The animal is not the source of the excreted CO2; it’s the bacteria that live inside the animal. You, me, the cows, the crickets, all God’s creatures need to fart. Especially we humans, as we have more bacteria living inside each of us than there are dollars in our $30+ trillion national debt.
Beef cattle graze rangelands and pastureland, and enrich the soil as they go. Upfront infrastructure inputs include fence posts and wire, except on federal rangelands where often none is required. Other expenses include either gas-sipping ATVs or a few horses, saddles, and bridles for moving them. Taking them to market needs the one-time use of a truck and trailer. Crickets, on the other hand, require climate-controlled enclosed space and energy-heavy 24/7 HVAC operations from egg through carcass. No fresh air, sunlight, or free-ranging for them.
Total feed consumption, over the life of a beef animal from all sources, is about 25 lbs per pound of flesh produced. Pastured/ranged beef cattle that are finished on grain consume about 2.5 lbs of grain per lb of flesh. Grass-fed beef is becoming an increasingly popular choice and involves none of the steps involved in planting, fertilizing, watering, growing, harvesting, processing, or transporting grain for food. Crickets consume around 2 lbs of grain-based feed for every pound of cricket produced—not a significant difference from grain-finished beef, but quite a big one compared to the grass-fed.
And consider the relatively simple course of turning slaughtered beef into steaks, roasts, and hamburgers. Beef is handled, with hands, throughout the process. Crickets are washed clean, roasted, dried, chopped, and either powdered or emulsified depending on the desired product. Crickets are sometimes frozen before processing. Alternatively, they are roasted alive, ouch. Raw cricket powder sells for $40-$50 per lb.
They’ve been trying to explain away CO2, globull warming, climate change and other nonsense. I know it’s a ruse to get free government money. I know the government tactics to create a crisis and then try to solve it. This is not that. It is a money grab. Look at Al Gore selling his TV station to the Oil Producing Al Jazeera, that doesn’t believe in climate change like all of the smart people who see through this.
The reason I pick on the crickets is the WEF wants us to eat bugs.
I had a lot of these growing up and made them more dangerous if possible. Instructions? If I read them, it didn’t mean I followed them.
Where were our parents? They bought us these killers and told us to go outside and play. I never had supervision other than don’t hurt the other kids, which was the point of all our games anyway.
I never had a Gilbert U-238 Atomic Energy Lab with real radiation.
In 1951, A.C. Gilbert introduced his U-238 Atomic Energy Lab, a radioactive learning set we can only assume was fun for the whole math club. Gilbert, who Americanmemorabilia claims was “often compared to Walt Disney for his creative genius,” had a dream that nuclear power could capture the imaginations of children everywhere. For a mere $49.50, the kit came complete with three “very low-level” radioactive sources, a Geiger-Mueller radiation counter, a Wilson Cloud Chamber (to see paths of alpha particles), a Spinthariscope (to see “live” radioactive disintegration), four samples of Uranium-bearing ores, and an Electroscope to measure radioactivity.
NJ school board just called Parents domestic terrorists, the squad/Bernie/Pocahontas and others are open about being commies. The Ivy League and the California University System, UCF, CRT in public schools and woke pronouns. Don’t get me started on Hollywood, but I might be giving them more credit in IQ points than they deserve.
The evidence is there. It always leads to death and destruction, but no mean tweets.
California has loved to stifle any form of capitalism with overbearing environmental laws has just done this:
A “catastrophic failure” killed 21,000 fish at a UC Davis research facility, the university announced Thursday.
We’ve had to listen to decades of them protecting water against farmers using it so a worthless fish (compared to what they killed) could stand in the way of irrigation.
There is enough water for the state if they would quit mismanaging it.
I could go on about them killing raptors (especially eagles) in favor of turbines, that don’t help their rolling blackouts either.
They don’t really care about the environment as stated. They want to restrict resources to control the population. They have the most private jets flying around the world (to global warming conferences) so don’t give us the argument that this is for the climate. They only care to control money, the goal of climate change anyway.
This is after they protect pet fish also:
The center has made headlines in recent years for assisting with pet fish injured in California wildfires. In 2017, 16 koi fish were rushed to CABA for care after being impacted by the Wine Country wildfires; they recovered and were returned to their grateful owner.
Now I could tie this to the 20 plus food plants that have burned creating a food shortage, something the Soviets did to starve their population, but then that would be conspiratorial. People hate it when I am right on this so I won’t say anything.
There is a pattern here by the left. Using climate issues for control. It’s there for you to see.
One of the areas hit hard by the drought is the state’s farms. This is especially troubling as we enter an era of food scarcity concerns. Commenting on the poor state handling of the drought and its impact on California agriculture, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., blasted for mishandling the problem during his time in office.
“I think Gavin Newsom has failed when it comes to water,” McCarthy, who represents a district in California’s Central Valley, said.
…[F]armers’ yields and, consequently, their businesses, are suffering, said Sam Parnagian, a third generation California Central Valley farmer. Over one-third of the country’s vegetables and two-thirds of its fruits and nuts are grown in California, according to the state Department of Food and Agriculture.
“You’ll go see tens of thousands of acres that used to have nuts, almonds, pistachios, and they’re just bare,” “It’s just all dust.”
This is a grave matter, especially for those who love pasta and french fries. The poor planning and negligence in accommodating agricultural needs mean a looming tomato shortage.
California leads the world in production of processing tomatoes — the variety that gets canned and used in commercial kitchens to make some of the most popular foods. The problem is the worst drought in 1,200 years is forcing farmers to grapple with a water crisis that’s undermining the crop, threatening to further push up prices from salsa to spaghetti sauce.
I worked in RTP and while the Tar Heel graduates were at least better workers than those from Harvard, they came with the same attitude that we gave a shit where they went to college vs what they could do to help our company.
HERE IS WHAT THEY DID
Harvard and UNC are being sued because they allegedly (HA) discriminate(d) against Asians. Why? Because they have higher GPA’s and test scores, but are of the wrong skin color for diversity and wokeness.
You’d think that for prestige, you’d want the best and the brightest, but Harvard and by extension the Ivy League and Duke (UNC-CH isn’t that great, I lived there and watched who went and who came out, they didn’t get into Harvard so they wound up there).
Instead, they want to be woke, show diversity, embarrass the Alumni and further taint the reputation and respect for the institution and it’s graduates.
Harvard uses race at every stage of the admissions process. To begin, Harvard recruits high-school students differently based on race. App.154-56. African-American and Hispanic students with PSAT scores of 1100 and up are invited to apply to Harvard, but white and Asian-American students must score a 1350. JA.577:6-581:20; JA.3741. In some parts of the country, Asian-American applicants must score higher than all other racial groups, including whites, to be recruited by Harvard.
* * *
Harvard’s admissions data revealed astonishing racial disparities in admission rates among similarly qualified applicants. SFFA’s expert testified that applicants with the same “academic index” (a metric created by Harvard based on test scores and GPA) had widely different admission rates by race. App.179-80; JA.6008-09. For example, an Asian American in the fourth-lowest decile has virtually no chance of being admitted to Harvard (0.9%); but an African American in that decile has a higher chance of admission (12.8%) than an Asian American in the top decile (12.7%).
From Legal Insurrection:
The Legal Insurrection Foundation filed an Amicus Brief in support of the Asian students. It provides, in part:
The grand judicial experiment of excusing racial discrimination in university admissions in the hope it would promote the educational objective of diversity of viewpoint has failed, and accordingly, this Court should overrule or modify its holding in Grutter v. Bollinger, 539 U.S. 306 (2003) (“Grutter”). Despite the Court permitting the use of race in higher education admissions, viewpoint diversity is increasingly endangered on campus. Since Grutter, the range of viewpoints permitted on campus, particularly on matters regarding race, has narrowed. It’s time to return to the constitutional prohibition against racial discrimination without an exception for education.
It goes on to say:
The dirty little secret of higher-ed admissions is that achieving a desired “diverse” racial mix means discriminating against Asian applicants — or at least, secret until Students for Fair Admissions exposed it.
The higher-ed establishment is brazenly defending its race-conscious admissions in dozens of amicus briefs…
The statistics are shocking. As SFFA noted in its Harvard petition, “an Asian American in the fourth-lowest decile has virtually no chance of being admitted to Harvard (0.9%); but an African American in that decile has a higher chance of admission (12.8%) than an Asian American in the top decile (12.7%).”
Such unequal treatment followed the 2003 Supreme Court decision in Grutter v. Bollinger permitting schools’ temporary, limited use of race as one of many factors for the desired educational objective of viewpoint diversity. Harvard and other schools have used this loophole to drive de facto illegal racial quotas, using admissions subterfuges like personal scores and a “holistic” approach reminiscent of the methodologies Harvard developed a century ago to limit Jewish enrollment….
Not a single college or university supported the Asian students. To the contrary, several dozen briefs were filed against SFFA on behalf of hundreds of colleges, universities, higher-education and professional-school associations, teachers unions, more than 1,000 professors and deans and even college basketball coaches.
One of the most striking things about these briefs is the openness with which colleges admit to having racial preferences and their complete lack of sympathy for the Asian victims of discrimination.
The American Bar Association, which accredits law schools, bluntly demanded the court “not ban race-conscious admissions policies.” The University of California president and chancellors argued that “universities must retain the ability to engage in the limited consideration of race.”
A group of highly competitive schools including most of the Ivy League claimed, “No race-neutral alternative presently can fully replace race-conscious individualized and holistic review to obtain the diverse student body.”
Without racial preferences, in other words, these schools could not achieve their desired racial mix….
So Harvard lets in those who it knows won’t be able to make it (look up STEM studies, entrance vs graduation), saddle them with excessive student loan debt and then let them get a degree in the Arts, for those who stick it out. They enter the job world penalized by both knowledge and debt.
The rest of them will be ok as long as they stay with their alumni buddies. Work is just the next Ivy League club anyway, going by their definition.
Look at the state, it’s Oregon, which means the men have PMS too. There is a state that is battling California, Washington (both state and DC), New York and Illinois for being the worst place to live, if you are normal. The good thing about these places is that they are there and not where I am. The weirdo’s are attracted to these cities instead of normal places regular people like to live.
To be fair, Quayle wasn’t as bad as they made him out to be. He wasn’t one of theirs so the media attacked him for reading the teleprompter on how to spell Potato. Presidents 44 and 46 need a teleprompter to talk to elementary school kids.
Carter couldn’t make a decision so he is historically rated near the bottom.
With the current president and Veep, Quayle and Carter don’t have to go down as the worst.
At least they don’t give her anything important to do now that the election is over. The one thing she was supposed to do is oversee the protection of the southern border and that worked out worse than misspelling potato.
I think everyone gets that Biden isn’t helping anyone do better other than Hunter and Congress.
Vice President Kamala Harris just spoke at the scene of the Highland Park mass shooting.
“We have to take this stuff seriously, as seriously as you are because you have been forced to take this seriously,” she said. pic.twitter.com/vpLSydpJM0
I loved lawn darts. It’s like eating a tootsie roll pop. You always bite it. With lawn darts, you take maybe 2 throws at the circle and then you are aiming at the other kids. Now, micro aggression’s need safe spaces in case I hurt you with an incorrect pronoun or say a forbidden word. How sad it is that you can become so shallow that words thrown childishly and generally out of context hurt you.
Now for dodgeball. They don’t let kids play it because the unwritten rules are kill the fat kids and girls first as they are the slowest and easiest to hit. It’s why lions kill the slowest in the heard. They are the ones that got a good game banned because they couldn’t win. Note: This game is a good lesson in life, survival, awareness and loyalty.
Loyalty in dodgeball? Yes. When it’s down to a couple of kids, you don’t throw at your friends first. It spilled over into class and life.
Did we aim for the body? If it was available, otherwise a head shot was good for stories 2 days later that everyone enjoyed until Karen’s came along.
If they would stop banning the good games (also red rover), maybe kids would go outside more.
It’s a lot of people who think they are progressive, until things don’t go their way.
The decision is what the courts say it is, especially the Supreme Court. I’ve got my view, but that’s not important. That people will openly be racist in today’s society is telling. They came out of the woodwork against Clarence Thomas, arguably one of the most influential black man currently serving our country. He’s leagues ahead of Lloyd Austin, Jean-Pierre, the new Scotus judge and other diversity hires by the current administration.
It’s usually the celebtards and the MSM that reveal themselves first. They are usually the least intelligent, which is why they are first to die when the Communists take over. The America haters.
Hating someone for the color of their skin, including their own color is racist. Any color and probably every color has racist people. It’s just that these are the most vocal and the one’s that should be the least racist.
The first Racist is Samuel L Jackson, who said if this M****r F****r (Trump) gets elected, I’m moving my MF ass to South Africa. This was in 2016 and and did nothing of course. I wanted him to leave and stop ruing our lives.
This time, he’s called Clarence Thomas, uncle Clarence, nee uncle Tom.
Whoopi Goldberg, known for unrealistic and batshit opinions on the View said this:
Whoopi Goldberg, co-host of “The View,” reacted to the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade by issuing an overtly racist threat toward Justice Clarence Thomas, who is black, about his marriage to his wife Ginni, who is white.
“You better hope that they don’t come for you, Clarence, and say you should not be married to your wife, who happens to be white,” Goldberg yelled, suggesting that conservatives in America would seek to ban interracial marriage (another stupid statement).
“They will move back, and you’d better hope that nobody says, you know, well, you’re not in the Constitution. You’re back to being a quarter of a person,” she added.
Lori Lightfoot, failed mayor of Chicago was even less eloquent with F*** Thomas. Hard to respect Chicago for electing a person of this low moral character and ability to run Mayberry, let alone Chicago.
It is a common belief that only certain races can be racist. This proves that anyone can be. A man upholds the law and does what he is charged to do, overruling a flawed legal decision that Ruth Bader Ginsberg said needed to go. Jackson has said enough stuff to disqualify himself against what MLK’s dream was and to prove he is racist.
Maxine Waters, well past her sell/use by date spent 4 years calling Trump racist. She ignored the facts that blacks did better under Trump than any president. She said F*** the Supreme Court and paraded on TV like a clown. She has supported the country of Wakanda, doesn’t live in the district she represents, and has been on the wrong side of most things, including race. She can’t even recognize that she is one of the biggest racists if you look at her words and actions.
Kamala Harris can help stepping into the mud said this:
“And a woman myself, and the daughter of a woman, and a granddaughter of a woman,” Harris remarked.
This comment was roundly mocked on social media as a contrast to previous progressive confusion over what a woman is.
US Vice President Kamala Harris speaks about reproductive rights as she virtually meets with abortion providers in the South Auditorium at the White House in Washington, DC on May 19, 2022.
“I’m pretty sure she’s not a biologist,” Media Research Center associate editor Nick Fondacaro tweeted, referring to the past comment by Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown-Jackson.
Independent Women’s Network Director Julie Gunlok joked, “Oh…so NOW everyone knows what a woman is. Got it.”
Townhall.com managing editor Spencer Brown similarly noted, “Kamala Harris is qualifying her opinion on the Dobbs outcome by explaining that she’s a woman, her mother was a woman, and her grandmother was a woman.”
So next time the media wants to talk about racism. Let’s be inclusive and diverse about it to recognize the truth. Everyone can be racist despite the self appointed judges in the MSM, half of congress and Hollywood.
Not all Black Lives Matter either. Only the liberal ones. They wouldn’t want to kill so many blacks in the womb (Eugenics anyone, the original reason for abortion) if all Black Lives Mattered.
They proved their own case. They are the racists, no matter what they call others. The words you speak come from your heart, so you are racist against blacks. Look in the mirror first.
Anyway, if you want to kill your child, this is legal:
Finally, white people now use the N-word freely, if they are liberals to talk about Thomas. They seem to be taken down, but it’s there and will be. Explain that next time a candidate is racist.

According to Prof. Windisch, as reported by the Bavarian Agricultural Weekly News of November 25, 2021, “The role of ruminants with regards to climate protection has up to now been overestimated by at least a factor of 3 to 4. An enormous climate contribution to climate warming has been falsely attributed to ruminants: 15 to 20%.”
That means in reality the so-called contribution is closer to just 5%.
Moreover, according to the Klimaschau, the number of ruminants in Germany has not risen, data show. In 1873, Germany had a total of 16 million ruminants. But in 2010, that number was down to 13 million.
Also, whatever methane that cows do emit ends up getting broken down in a matter of just a few years, the Klimaschau reports. Thus the system remains in equilibrium and so there’s little impact on climate.
Confirmed by the IPCC 6th Report
According to gvf Agrar: “It often goes unmentioned that the climate gases from agriculture come from balanced biogenic cycles and not from fossil fuels that transport additional CO2 into the atmosphere. This was also stated by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in the first volume of the sixth IPCC Assessment Report.”
It just goes to show what a joke he has made of the Royals. The Queen may be the last good monarch. Her son is a joke to the rest of us (as is her grandson, prince sparkles).
With a domestic take nearing $300 million after only ten days in release, Top Gun: Maverick continues to prove the obvious: moviegoers of all ages will show up in droves if you entertain and inspire us.
Moviegoers aren’t losing that loving feeling for Top Gun: Maverick this weekend as the movie is destined to become Tom Cruise’s top-grossing movie ever at the domestic box office with $273.6M. The 3x Oscar nominee’s previous high earning title was Steven Spielberg’s 2005 sci-fi title War of the Worlds at $234M.
Top Gun 2 is expected to beat War of the Worlds on Saturday; the Joseph Kosinski-directed sequel eyeing a second Friday of $20M, -61% against last Friday (+ previews) on its way to a 3-day of $68M, -46%. Some rival studios see it much higher, but again, it’s still early.
A second-weekend hold of just -46 percent [UPDATE: -32 percent] is extraordinary. Most blockbusters dip 60 percent or better. In other words, Top Gun: Maverick has real legs and is almost certainly benefiting from repeat business.
Leftists are already mad that a non-woke movie that doesn’t violate human nature with woke lectures, woke perversion, woke revisionism, and woke emasculation, is not only breaking records but being embraced by wingnuts like me.
Why People Love It
Look at that last paragraph. The world has woke fatigue. In war, it’s almost always men fighting, but that is the woketard’s biggest target. They hate the reality of who are hero’s and do the dirty work of war. It’s really a picture of reality.
We love a hero that swoops in to save the day. Throughout history, it’s not the woke who put their lives on the line, it’s guys with big balls, like Maverick.
It is indeed true that Top Gun: Maverick does not go out of its way to celebrate inclusion and diversity in the sometimes-cloying, corporate way most closely associated with various Disney properties.
Bingo! We don’t go to the movies to celebrate inclusion and diversity because inclusion and diversity are fucking stupid. We’re Americans. We don’t dwell on our differences, especially differences as shallow as skin color. Instead, we come together as one to get the job done.
Themes drive good movies. “Inclusion” and “diversity” are not themes. Instead, they’re buzzwords spouted by smug, over-educated, shallow bullies whose self-esteem is based on everything but character and integrity.
To prove my point, here are hero oriented movies, but change the character from male to anything.
Woke Movies That Failed
Woke West Side Story: Flop
Woke Eternals: Flop
Woke In the Heights: Flop
Woke Wonder Woman1984: Flop
Woke Charlie’s Angels: Flop
Woke Men In Black International: Flop
Woke Birds of Prey: Flop
Woke Ghostbusters 3: Flop
Woke The 355: Flop.
Woke Terminator Dark Fate: Flop
Woke Oscars: flop
Woke Netflix: Stock tanking
Woke Groomers at Disney: Stock tanking
Woke Star Wars: Doornail dead as a film franchise.
How many franchises, including Star Wars — woke has been so rejected it killed freakin’ Star Wars! — have to commit Woke Suicide before these morons smell the coffee? It’s Kathleen Kennedy who killed both Star Wars and is killing Marvel for the sake of not having men as hero’s and replacing them in the same story with woke losers.
But, as we all know, they smell the coffee just fine.
It’s admitting to what the coffee smells like that they don’t have the moral courage to admit.
I regularly post about the tragedy that is social media, how government mishandled Covid, that Gates and Fauci are power grabbing beta males and the worst sin of all, saying Covid came from Wuhan.
I have enjoyed posting the dangers of the jab, because meatheads I know can’t believe that I’ve proved it’s poison.
It turned out that I was both ahead of the curve on a lot of things
I predicted it would take it’s toll on my traffic and it did. I still get hits from China watching me properly place blame on their policies and human rights, but the big G search engine didn’t like it at all.
I also got banned by Facebook searches which regularly borrowed my memes. I detailed how to delete fake book many times and why you should do it.
All of that has cut me to about 10% of my usual traffic.
Now, ask me if I care? Why I don’t is that I write this for me. I get my thoughts out there in writing. Being introverted, I’d rather communicate that way rather than orally.
Will I stop? Not a chance. I’m having too much fun lampooning the mistakes.
Heck, the election season is not really in full swing. I can’t wait.
Sure, Biden is a joke, but he’ll be gone soon. Chuckles will be King for life unless Prince William can bring some sanity to the throne.
The Queen held out as long as possible, every time he says something like this I watch her hang on a little bit longer:
“I can’t tell you how proud I am to be associated with the Royal College of Art, particularly as a result of seeing the remarkable ideas presented by many of the alumni and existing students,” Prince Charles said at the event where the prizes were given out. “May I say that it is critical because of the urgency we face in terms of the crisis confronting us in all directions and just how important is what their ideas represent in terms of finding solutions rapidly.”
But putting masks on cows? Really? Not only does it sound ridiculous, it sounds rather inhumane.
“I feel rather sorry for the cow. Animals don’t tend to like wearing stuff on their faces if they can help it and I should think the first thing they are going to try and do is scrape that thing off on a fence post and the fields will be left full of plastic masks.” said British journalist Ross Clark, who added that cows “got to be able to eat and breathe.”
Clark also noted that the device does nothing to stop methane emissions from the animals’ other end.
“When methane’s emitting from the mouth you can’t sort of cover the whole thing which is why this device has only really claimed to capture 60 percent of the methane emitted through a cow’s mouth and nothing out the rear end,” Clark stated.
Centuries of Georges, Williams, Richards and now Chuckles the 1st.
Twitter user Perry Lucas summed it up well, saying “Our future King, Prince Charles backs a face mask device for cows that catches Methane emissions in order to stop climate change. Jesus….what is he smoking? Truly are living in clown world.”
Meanwhile, many climate scientists — even climate-fanatic scientists — have dismissed the notion that a trace gas such as methane has much, if any, effect on global warming. Some climate modelers have even omitted it from their models.
Physicist Dr. Tom Sheahen points out that any effect that methane (CH4) might have is essentially canceled out by water vapor already in the atmosphere.
“The ratio of the percentages of water to methane is such that the effects of CH4 are completely masked by H2O. The amount of CH4 must increase 100-fold to make it comparable to H2O,” Sheahen notes.
It’s germane to point out that Prince Charles is a high-profile proponent of the so-called Great Reset, a plan pushed by the World Economic Forum that would have the common people move on to other sources of protein rather than livestock. Insects, for instance, are good enough for us.
The same people are proposing huge new taxes on meat, which could eventually make it unaffordable to the masses.
Now, we get the even worse news that the Bilderbergs are meeting this week to plan their takeover. I know people think it’s silly to consider them conspiracists, but who wants a group of rich people taking over your privacy, money, property and whatever else they want.
Technological competition between China and the USA
Continuity of government and economy
Disruption of the global financial system
Energy security and sustainability
Health after a pandemic
Fragmentation of democratic societies
Trade and deglobalization
So remake the world, ruin the financial system and globalize the world, great.
More than 120 representatives of the European and North American elite from politics, business, big tech, media, and academia will meet from June 2nd to 5th for the 68th Bilderberg Meeting to discuss important global issues.
The secret summit of the global elite is taking place for the first time in three years due to Covid. Journalist Paul Watson reports:
The CEO of Pfizer, the head of the CIA, the director of the NSC, the vice president of Facebook, the king of Holland, and the secretary-general of NATO are secretly meeting behind closed doors in DC. It’s called Bilderberg, and not a single major media outlet has reported on it.
The CEO of Pfizer, the head of the CIA, the Director of the NSC, the VP of Facebook, the King of Holland and the Secretary General of NATO are all secretly meeting right now behind closed doors in DC.
It’s called Bilderberg, & not a single major media outlet has reported on it. That’s how I know it stinks. When the propaganda arm of the government (MSM) doesn’t touch it including FOX, they are up to no good.
Say anything you need so as to get re-elected. Divide people against others based on anything available, race, gender, sex, religion…all the taboo subjects at Thanksgiving dinner. I’m just talking about the media. The candidates will need to step up their lying to the level of newscasters and reporters. Oh, I just remembered the woke factor. A topic capable of ruining everything it touches.
It doesn’t end in November either. With recounts, lawsuits and new levels of cheating, there is no telling how long it will be.
2024 will be right around the corner so this cycle may not end.
I was aware that it was going on, but have yet to click on an article because they are celebtards, a group of people that deserve what they get, good or bad. It sucks to be famous, I promise you.
On an added note, I also glanced at a headlines about a Kardashian wedding or something, but couldn’t care enough about that either. Plus, I didn’t want to lose my streak of never seeing anything Kardashian on purpose.
No one gives much of a crap about colleges unless it’s theirs or it’s Football season or the Final Four, or they embarrass themselves.
Well, I graduated from UCF, although it was named Florida Technological University. It was started during the Apollo moon program to develop engineers for NASA. When that stopped, they had to try to be a business college.
I’m ashamed enough of what they have become that I changed my college to Faber College on LinkedIn. Knowledge is good.
I led the student advisory committee in the late ’70’s which recommended that the school start a football program. It is a big money maker and they have been nationally ranked. I won’t even go anymore. Hell, I’ll pull against them when they cross the line now as right is right and wrong is wrong.
It was all OK until they went woke, became a bunch of snowflakes and free speech Nazi’s. Now, they nationally are rank(ed) (smelling because being Woke). Unfortunately, I also went to school with some of the now board of directors (M. Grindstaff) and I’m not surprised that this group would allow this bias and contempt for the Bill of Rights. A lot of them are lawyers so what do you expect?
UCF fired tenured professor Charles Negy for tweeting the truth about black privilege, but it doesn’t matter, free speech should be protected (except for Negy). There is enough acidic speech against the position he was fired for that should have had them look at the real violations committed by UCF, it’s directors and spokespersons.
It turns out they violated free speech, Negy’s rights and acted like spoiled children. I’m embarrassed to be associated with them. I vowed never to step back on campus once I graduated and never have, knowing the kind of people they have running and advising it to be anti-constitutional. They had to re-hire him with back pay, bonus and tenure. Justice is served.
UCF is against freedom, free speech and the first amendment. Worse, they are Woke, a scarlet letter. They discriminate against conservatives, professors and white people. They also show a serious lack of judgement on their Board Of Emeritus Directors.
We previously discussed the effort to fire University of Central Florida Professor Charles Negy after he tweeted about “black privilege.” UCF President Alexander Cartwright abandoned any pretense of academic freedom or principle in failing to protect a colleague from an anti-free speech campaign. Now, after a major court ruling against the university, an arbitrator has awarded Negy all back pay and benefits from the time of his firing. That is good news. What is not good news is that, despite shredding core principles governing higher education, Cartwright remains the UCF president. To the contrary, the university issued a statement that indicated that it is undeterred by the adverse court rulings. Negy, an associate professor of psychology at the University of Central Florida, required police protection after he tweeted about what he views as “black privilege.” There was a petition demanding his termination with more than 30,000 signatures and, as we have seen in other schools, his colleagues were virtually silent as Negy was attacked for expressing his views. While classroom misconduct has been raised by some critics, most of the effort (and the focus of this posting) is on his statements on social media. That petition focused on Negy’s statements on social media as unacceptable and grounds for termination:
“We are calling on the University of Central Florida to dismiss psychology professor Charles Negy due to abhorrent racist comments he has made and continues to make on his personal Twitter account. In addition to racism, Negy has engaged in perverse transphobia and sexism on his account, which is just as reprehensible. While he has a right to free speech, he does not have a right to dehumanize students of color and other minority groups, which is a regular occurance [sic] in his classroom. By allowing him to continue in his position, UCF would simply be empowering another cog in the machine of systemic racism.”
Negy faced protests at his home and on campus, according to news reports after he explored the concept of “white shaming” as an academic, including his book “White Shaming: Bullying Based on Prejudice, Virtue-Signaling, and Ignorance.”
Negy’s work is highly controversial and his tweets have inflamed critics. In a now deleted tweet, he wrote “Black privilege is real: Besides affirm. action, special scholarships and other set asides, being shielded from legitimate criticism is a privilege. But as a group, they’re missing out on much needed feedback.”
He has also written, again on Twitter, “If Afr. Americans as a group, had the same behavioral profile as Asian Americans (on average, performing the best academically, having the highest income, committing the lowest crime, etc.), would we still be proclaiming ‘systematic racism’ exists?”
Again, the question is not the merits or tenor of such writings but the right of academics to express such viewpoints. There have been few comparable protests when professors write inflammatory comments about white culture or white privilege.
UCF President Alexander Cartwright told students that the university would investigate Negy, and that he and his Administration “are acutely aware of the offensive and hurtful Twitter posts that professor Charles Negy has shared on his personal page. These posts do not reflect the values of UCF, and I strongly condemn these racist and abhorrent posts.”
We recently discussed the Eleventh Circuit ruling against Cartwright and the university over its discriminatory-harassment and bias response team policies as violative of the First Amendment. The Eleventh Circuit overturned a district judge’s rejection of a preliminary injunction against the policy: “[I]t is imperative that colleges and universities toe the constitutional line when monitoring, supervising, and regulating student expression. Despite what we presume to be the very best of intentions, it seems to us substantially likely that the University of Central Florida crossed that line here.”
In oral argument, the university’s own lawyer struggled to define the terms or to say whether particular statements might be deemed prohibited. The court noted:
“The discriminatory-harassment policy’s imprecision exacerbates its chilling effect. To take just one example, what does it mean for one student’s speech to ‘unreasonably . . . alter’ another student’s educational experience? Both terms — ‘unreasonably’ and ‘alter’— are pretty amorphous, their application would likely vary from one student to another, and the university’s totality-of-known-circumstances approach to determining whether particular speech crosses the line only makes matters worse.”
Just as the university spent a huge amount of time and money to fight for these unconstitutional rules, it has litigated the matter over Negy to seek to strip him of his job and all benefits due to his exercise of free speech.
After teaching psychology at the school since 1998, Negy, 61, was fired in January 2021. As Cartwright turned the weight of the university against him, Negy had to sell his house to pay his lawyers.
The arbitrator noted that, while the school added objections to his teaching style, Negy received outstanding teaching reviews. Moreover, he noted Negy “demonstrated a willingness to entertain some change in his style of instruction; however, the record is devoid of any clear evidence that any member of his management requested such effort.”
Chad Binette, assistant vice president of UCF communications, indicated that the university remains undeterred by these losses. He stated that “UCF stands by the actions taken following a thorough investigation that found repeated misconduct in Professor Negy’s classroom, including imposing his views about religion, sex and race. However, we are obligated to follow the arbitrator’s ruling.”
What is not clear to me is how Cartwright retains his position as president in a Florida public university after such a record of attacks on free speech and academic freedom. He has not only sought to impose anti-free speech conditions on faculty but spent copious amounts of money seeking to preserve those rules and uphold those actions. These principles are the essence of any university and their abandonment constitutes a rejection of Cartwright’s obligation as a university president. I would not support his termination as an academic but, as an administrator, he has shown a serial failure to defend his faculty and free speech. Until university presidents are held accountable for failing to defend free speech, they will continue to yield to every flash mob that forms on a campus.
And, you if by chance you do break the next rule of look ahead and not at the other guy, you only are allowed to look each other in the eyes.
Guys learn this without being taught. No matter what socially/politically correct spew that comes out of their mouths outside the bathroom door, once you enter the rules are the same for everyone, everywhere.
If you are spatially aware (like a Seal or Spook), you go to the stall where you can’t get attacked from behind, but that is skill level 10 for dangerous people.
Why? Because I worked with/for/against them and understand who they are.
We had an analogy to describe working with them. It went like this. If the media were covering Moses coming down from Mount Sinai with the tablets, it would read, “Moses gets 10 commandments from God. Here are the 2 that we think are the most important to you”.
Donny Deutsch tweeted this gem just yesterday:
MSNBC’s @DonnyDeutsch: “We don’t have the economy on our side as Democrats. So you have to scare the bejesus out of people — & a way to scare them, to say, You know this replacement theory, this is not just coming from some dark corner of the web, this is the Republican platform” pic.twitter.com/JWwfDYJrny
I was listening to a talk show on cable radio and the announcer said his advice to newbies was say it convincingly, and they will believe it five fold.
These people are just news readers, from a teleprompter. It doesn’t appear that anyone on the MSM or social media care to get the facts right, rather try to impose their biased view (both sides) on you by shouting from their bully pulpit.
My advice? Turn off the news, all of it. It is propaganda anyway.
They. Are. Lying. On Purpose. In coordination with a lot of players. It’s coming out about bots on Twitter, Hunter’s Laptop, email servers and it’s all not being reported by those who should be investigating. That is a reporter tool, that along with verifying sources died in journalism a long time ago.
The media are in the crowd that hates America. Look at their position (it’s surprisingly the same one across the board with the same talking points).
I could site any number of examples, but you can’t tell anyone anything. I have a meathead just like Archie Bunker and I don’t try anymore.
Because it sums up what a lot of people think about it unless they are on the dole for woke money (Patrice Cuellors). I see a bunch of attention and wallet grabbers trying to make a quick killing while making up facts to suit their purposes. It’s clear they don’t care about what they say they represent. Take away the funding and see how much they care.
What is funny to me is that the woke are being used by politicians and they don’t even know it.
It fools a lot of people by pretending to be about high ideals. It pretends to struggle against injustice, overcome oppression, and so on.
But in reality, it’s something very different. For many more of us, the scam is clear: the Woke simply want power.They just want to rule over the rest of us. They’ve already made astounding progress toward this goal.
How are they pulling this off? They’re working to invent a flood of rules that we must live by, but they don’t. They want two sets of rules — some for us, others for them.
For example: Offending them is a terrible thing. It’s so terrible, in fact, that they’ve been trying to make it illegal to hurt their feelings. Yet they can offend us all the time.
They insist that subjective feelings are profoundly important — important enough to write laws and even base entire societies on. Yet our feelings are routinely ignored, minimized, dismissed, mischaracterized, or forcefully suppressed.
They justify everything they do based on their imaginary fantasies and utopian ideals, yet they dismiss everything we do because of the sinister aims they imagine we have.
They insist that we “shouldn’t judge” other people, and any expression of disapproval of their behavior, however mild, is completely unacceptable. Yet they “judge” us — quite harshly — all the time.
They insist on being allowed to be who they are, yet they refuse to let us be who we are.
They insist that we’re such terrible people that they refuse to even engage in a dialogue or conversation with us. Yet they claim that we’re the ones who are intolerant.
They claim the ability to know exactly what’s in our hearts (via their mind-reading skills, presumably), yet they insist that what’s happening in their hearts is something mysterious and profound that we can never understand.
They claim that we can never understand them because we’ve never lived their experience, yet they claim to fully understand us even though they’ve never lived our experience.
They insist on being judged solely by their good intentions, yet they insist on judging us solely by the imaginary motives they project onto us.
To call them unflattering names, accidentally or otherwise, is a horrific crime, they say (despite their ever-shifting, incoherent, exhausting jargon regarding what they want to be called), Yet they call us truly horrific names all the time (“fascist,” “racist,” “hater,” “White supremacist,” etc.)
They talk about race and gender relentlessly, as if those are the only important matters in life, yet they constantly accuse us of being racist and sexist.
They constantly accuse us of racism and sexism, while they continually judge people, divide them into groups, and try to reorganize the entire world according to individuals’ gender or skin color.
On the topic of males and females, they lecture us about the horror and intolerance of being “binary,” and insist (despite biological realities) that there are infinite shades of gray — yet they also declare that everyone is either a “Racist” or an “Anti-Racist,” and that’s it, those are the only two options.
They psychologize all of our motives (“You’re really doing that because of X, Y, and Z”), yet they insist that their own motives are completely pure and noble. (This applies even when their motives are glaringly and transparently corrupt.)
They insist on being allowed to define themselves, yet also insist that we can’t be allowed to define ourselves. They define themselves as heroic crusaders who fight Nazis, fascists, racists, etc. (which we’re also against, by the way) — but they refuse to acknowledge that we’re fighting evils as well, such as communists, tyrants, and totalitarians.
Seriously, you go from the leading producer and exporter to begging other countries for gas in a year. Even are you smarter than a fifth grader could figure this out.
The cabal behind Biden pulling the strings is just like when Obama got elected. Undo everything Trump did (or Bush 43 back then) despite it’s effectiveness for us, the consumers. The people of the United States of America who the government is supposed to work for.
I wonder do they hate Trump or the people of the USA more? I’m feeling a lot of hate towards me and no one in the government cares about my existence except on tax day.
I don’t think they will go broke really, but the stock value is down 33% after incorrectly interpreting a Florida bill and picking sides against the family. They have branded themselves the enemy of good, and what 98% of families are made up of, the 2 genders that they were born as.
Half the Disney people will love them for doing this because that is how the country is. They are losing the good people though.
Walt would turn in his grave with how his company is being run.
It used to be that whatever they wanted, they got. Now, the trannies have taken over their sports, their Woman of the year awards but most of all, leapt ahead of feminists on the victimhood scale. That means less social media Karen-ism’s and power, and most of all money from grifting and gender baiting the companies.
The woke always eat their own.
I never bought the feminist argument anyway. Why do they want to be like men? Go be yourselves and don’t try to be something your not.
I loathe the woke and the victimhood liars. All mentioned here are in that category. Live your life and don’t act like you are so special. No matter what is said in public, most don’t like it when no one is listening.
The real cowards won’t play when it’s not their rules. It must be that tough to have words bother you so much that you can’t work for a company.
I find this wildly entertaining that Musk bought a majority stake in hater Twitter. I can’t wait to see what will happen and hope for a wonderful train wreck to entertain me on this one. I am finding Must to be right far more than wrong and am learning to trust non traditional thinkers such as him.
I really don’t think much will happen, but the consternation it will stir up may split the audience for other platforms. That would take away the historical preference for Twitter Twatter.
Like in the movie War Games, sometimes the best move is to not play. I have had a blissful twitter free life now since before Trump. I recommend it or another instant platform of your choice.
I have accounts with all the competitors, but the drain of being on another social media platform is being overpowered by my introverted nature to avoid people.
I grew up in Orlando, before there was a Disney. There was Disneyland in California and Disney on TV, but the Tragic Magic Kingdom hadn’t struck the world with the force that would be Disney World.
I also remember Walt Disney talking on TV, espousing entertainment and fun. It was about family, fun and fantasy. We could all sit around the living room and not worry about any untoward messaging or images.
Orlando and Disney are very much different. Both have exploded in size and money. It paved the way for the purchase of both Marvel and Lucas Films. Behind all of it though it was changing. I stopped going or supporting anything they do, which is hard for a Marvel and Star Wars fan. Fortunately, the last few Marvel films and the last 3 Star Wars releases were all terrible.
I recall when they had the first Gay Pride Day or whatever they called it. The problem was that they didn’t tell the families and the church groups that a bunch of dudes would be dressed in girls clothes (or less) and would be doing disgusting things in front of little kids.
The dust ups inside the park were swept under the rug so that it got no media attention.
The hiring of Eisner and Kennedy have spread wokeness, diversity and perversion into the movies and parks ever since.
Disney has chosen a “hill to die on”: They want to overturn the new Florida law that stops the indoctrination of little children, from pre-kindergarten through third grade, with woke, sexual, gender-identity brainwashing and transgender equality education. Keep in mind that we’re only talking about 5- to 8-year-olds. What parent could possibly disagree? What parent visiting Disney could possibly disagree?
But Disney doesn’t care. They are intent on alienating the tens of millions of parents who believe that 5- to 8-year-olds shouldn’t be sexualized at school and that those same 5- to 8-year-olds shouldn’t be taught to change their sexual identity like they’re changing a pair of sneakers. Can you imagine? Disney has chosen this hill to die on.
The president of Disney recently bragged that she will make sure half of all characters in Disney movies, television shows and videos are either gay, lesbian, trans or other minorities. I have no problem with that. America is a free country. But I hope she and her Disney bosses have no problem if conservatives, Christians and patriots decide to never again visit any Disney theme park or spend a dime on any Disney product.
“Wokeness,” said Greg Gutfeld on Fox, “takes stuff that you love and can turn it to poison.” A recent example of this poisoning has been supplied by the Walt Disney Company, which used to be the purveyor of Mickey Mouse and other things American. Disney’s current management has been seduced by the powerful LGBTQ lobby. The company has announced that, from now on, 50 percent of its characters will be LGBTQ or minorities.
In a shameless case of overreach, Disney attacked a new parental rights law just passed in Florida that bans instruction concerning sex from kindergarten through the third grade. A strong majority of Floridians support the law. Disney doesn‘t give a damn. Following the lead of the left-wing media, Disney has attempted to mischaracterize the law as anti-gay.
The important thing to realize is that a majority of Disney employees are not in lockstep with their management. Jose Castillo, a current Disney employee who is running for Congress in Florida as a Republican, said that the “silent majority” of Disney employees supports the parental rights law despite the loud minority leading Disney to oppose it. “Disney and similar corporations listen to the loudest voices in the crowd,” said Castillo. “The Disney cast members who support the parental rights far outnumber those who are protesting against it.” English broadcaster Piers Morgan summed it up: “You’ve got this small group of very woke people that bully companies into following their very narrow worldview.”
What about the majority of Americans — do they accept wokeness? The answer is no. Wokeness is an example of what I call the tyranny of the minority. “The actual number of the woke remains small,” says Scott McConnell, “perhaps six percent of the population, according to Pew surveys of American political attitudes. It is educated, it is mostly white, it is heavily concentrated in the media and universities. But it isn’t powerful enough to control the country if majorities are mobilized to resist it.”
Florida Lt. Gov. Jeanette Núñez, R., argued that Disney, the “most magical place on earth,” has now digressed into the “most hypocritical and woke” place. The Florida lieutenant governor made these comments after Disney faced backlash over its stance on the parental rights bill signed into law this week by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, R.
LT. GOV. JEANETTE NUNEZ: We stand here in Florida…on behalf of the rights of parents, and it’s a sad state of affairs when the most magical place on Earth has now digressed into the most hypocritical and woke place on Earth… Governor DeSantis and I, we don’t take our marching orders from California corporate executives that want to push a radical agenda on our children.
They’ve tarnished their brand with their most recent political activism targeting Florida’s Parental Rights in Education Act — a bill most Americans support.”
Yet she still wishes for the best. “My hope,” she said, “is that the company comes to its senses, remembers who their customers are and gets back to doing what they do best: Entertain ‘dreamers of all ages.’”
Get woke go broke usually. I don’t think Disney will go broke, but a lot of parents have to ask themselves, do I want to take my kids to a place where they are against traditional family values.
They are ruining the movies. They are woke there also. Anytime you can get rid of a white male, it’s Disney’s new rules.
SCOOP: Disney corporate president Karey Burke says, “as the mother [of] one transgender child and one pansexual child,” she supports having “many, many, many LGBTQIA characters in our stories” and wants a minimum of 50 percent of characters to be LGBTQIA and racial minorities. pic.twitter.com/oFRUiuu9JG
I love watching Star Wars and Marvel shows on Disney+ but I fear that soon I won’t be able to watch any of it. I know that Marvel has already started doing that with one of their new movies, The Eternals, and I stopped watching that one as soon as I saw two dudes kissing. It was easy though because the movie, up to that point, was pretty boring.
Since 2010, our government has “given free money” to people. Yes, billions were siphoned off the top to people that don’t need it and were just dipping their hands in the till. There are plenty of cases documented. In the court of law, it’s called money laundering.
We’ve known about the fraud associated with the COVID relief program known as the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP):
Many who participated in what prosecutors are calling the largest fraud in U.S. history — the theft of hundreds of billions of dollars in taxpayer money intended to help those harmed by the coronavirus pandemic — couldn’t resist purchasing luxury automobiles. Also mansions, private jet flights and swanky vacations.
They came into their riches by participating in what experts say is the theft of as much as $80 billion — or about 10 percent — of the $800 billion handed out in a Covid relief plan known as the Paycheck Protection Program, or PPP. That’s on top of the $90 billion to $400 billion believed to have been stolen from the $900 billion Covid unemployment relief program — at least half taken by international fraudsters — as NBC News reported last year. And another $80 billion potentially pilfered from a separate Covid disaster relief program.
Like hitchhiking; it’s ass, grass or cash, no one rides for free. The bill is now due and it’s being paid at the grocery store and the gas pump. I’ll give it to you that the gas pump prices don’t have to happen, but the current administration is just giving us pain. It was half the price a year and a half ago and the ability to take it back to that prices is available still, if they wanted to do it.
Why take out a loan for a useless degree, like in the title. You’ll be working at Starbucks. Seriously, some people shouldn’t go to college. If we had an apprentice program, a lot of people would get on the job training without incurring massive debt for no reason.
A lot of people that shouldn’t be accepted into the Ivy Leagues are based on affirmative action. They are saddled with tremendous debt and a lot of them with no or a useless degree, like Happiness, women’s studies, African studies and gender studies. There just aren’t a lot of jobs for that currently.
Worst of all, the Squad wants us to forgive the trillions of loans. I got news for you girls:
Here is the gist of the story.
You can earn an MA in Happiness Studies at Centenary University in New Jersey for only $17,700. The university wants “to lead the happiness revolution by educating leaders who are themselves dedicated to personal, interpersonal and communal flourishing,”
The degree is probably as useful as a women’s studies degree.
Centenary University’s program will “explore the implications of happiness for individuals, the workplace, and our broader society,” according to the college’s announcement. It’s set to launch virtually in the fall and will cost students $17,700.
Student loans drove up Tuition. Campaign promises are raising the hopes of people who got themselves in trouble, either from ignorance or ideology (note the degrees above).
Some can make a go of it with a loan and a degree. That is not one size fits all. That is one size fits few really.
It is a lesson in responsibility if you took out a loan. It’s how the world really works. There is your degree.
What do they have in common? Both were born with the XY Chromosome, produce a lot of testosterone and probably still have dicks. Oh, they also take achievements, awards and positions away from women born with XX Chromosome’s, produce Estrogen and were born with vaginas.
Need I go on now that I’m not being woke or PC?
You can change your appearance, but not gender. It’s that science thing they want us to either believe or ignore, depending on what is convenient for those who think they are the ruling class.
I know readers will go away who think that something this obvious is so offensive, but I refuse to live in a make believe world when the stuff they want me to believe is too far over the line.
When I worked in Boca Raton, my collegues were mostly guys in their 20-30’s, trying to make it in the computer industry. I am not naming names to protect the guilty.
We’d go to lunch together and have pitchers of beer, a good time and then go back to work. We were single, well employed and for the most part, presentable to good looking.
One of the lunch spots/watering holes was Tom’s Ribs next door.
On a particular lunch outing, one of our guys invited the editor and some writers of the National Enquirer. This was the 80’s so their reputation was near or at the bottom for truthfulness.
We enjoyed the best ribs in the South (Florida only) and numerous pitchers of beer. I was the PR department where we worked so I bonded easily with them even though we were in different industries.
I was used to reporters being heavy drinkers, but not on the day they had to close the current edition that day and it was only half written.
I chanced to ask the Editor how he was going to fact check his story (something all journalists used to do) in time to get the publication out by deadline. Here it is….he said, we don’t have to worry about the facts. He waved his hand in the air as if he was batting the truth away. The worse things we publish, the more they read. Everyone loves a train wreck and that’s what the Enquirer wrote about.
I learned a valuable lesson. Even though I worked with the media for a living, I realized that those behind the words are human also. Some care about the truth and others care less. Also learned was that the media has control over some people. In other words, they believe whatever is written, like my son-in-law from Portland who watches NBC and CNN and believes them.
They as a group be-clowned themselves starting with the Clinton-Lewinsky affair in the Oval office, got worse under Bush and gave away any credibility after 2008.
It is quite the list. Before you end it, you’d realize just how little you trust the media after watching them blatantly fabricating the truth.
This brings me back to the lunch. The reporters today, care as little about the facts and the truth as the drunk Enquirer writers that day eating ribs. Both laugh at the truth and the integrity of their jobs.
It’s as if they want higher prices. I wonder why? The country does great and they bitch about mean tweets, grill every hair out of place and cover the kids of President 45 like they were flying to the moon for the first time.
Now, failure upon embarrassment in a year. Oh, and Hunter Biden is providing more material than was ever covered in All The Presidents Men, yet all we get are crickets. Sound fair or unbiased? I didn’t think so, no matter which side you are on.
Via Miguel at GFZ, who quips “Nothing says, “Women’s History Month’…Like awarding a dude the title of Woman of the Year.” Ain’t it the truth.
Lia Thomas, or whatever his name is at UPenn is tearing up the girls in co-ed swimming, since it’s boys and girls together. The NCAA’s are this weekend and the men will win in both men’s and co-ed swimming. He still has is unit that bulges out in at girls suit and he gets to wave around in the girls gym that he’s invading.
The recent Jeopardy streak for longest wins by a female, you guessed it, by a dude, Joseph (Amy) Schneider who lived most of his life as a guy.
Recent Woman of the year, Caitlyn Bruce Jenner, triathlon champion, meaning he used to be one of the elite men. He probably still has his man junk.
Rachel Levine is one of USA TODAY’s Women of the Year, a recognition of women across the country who have made a significant impact. The annual program is a continuation of Women of the Century, a 2020 project that commemorated the 100th anniversary of women gaining the right to vote. Meet this year’s honorees at womenoftheyear.usatoday.com.
So, I ask, where are those who are supposed to stand up for women’s rights? Where is NOW, the pink pussy hat crowd, the celebtards like Madonna and Ashley Judd, what about Hilllary, or Michelle Obama or the big mouths who are constantly spouting off, mostly by trashing men to make themselves bigger.
The USA Today is a terrible rag that is so biased that it couldn’t cover a mouse hole with a 1000 copies so I’m not surprised.
Once again, being woke ruins everything, like always. This time it’s all the real females in the world.
Missing are some celebtards, some governors who let power get to their head, and one US president who cluelessly let power get to his head and mishandled and mis-managed Covid at almost every point. It could have been over in 2020, but no, so would the power and control. Also not pictured are the MSM, the propaganda arm of the current government as well as the woke social media, which ruins everything it touches, but was fully behind restricting people and locking us down.
Of course the Jab is killing people now, some groups more than others. The people that took it the most have the most problems. (Oh, climate change isn’t really happening except as a fund raiser for John Kerry’s private plane trips).
I doubted an Inconvenient Truth when it came out and not a prediction came through. I thought the Jab and Covid stunk just as bad and it turns out that it just as wrong and misleading. It is just as consolidated as a message we are supposed to buy in this 1984-ish scenario we live in today.
It isn’t that I’m guessing right all the time about what the government is doing, it’s the consistency of their messaging that hasn’t changed. It’s easier to see through it.
I thought yesterday, why did I decide that the Jab was bad news since the beginning? Because they pushed it on everyone despite the fact that it’s not one size fits all. The pattern has been there since Obamacare. Push it on the unsuspecting until they can’t turn back.
I’ve stopped being a sheep. I wonder if they will continue to offer this swill without thinking through it like those chanting religions. I get tired of the same thing over and over.
Communists get rid of them first. People who are famous that don’t get in line? Gone. Journalists? Work for the Government they way they want it reported or you’re gone. Celebrities who speak out, gone. Look at China and their tennis star (or Jack Ma). Those who are in the commie movement (in the USA, this would be college professors, the youth who have bought into this by ignoring history and of course Hollywood), all gone. These are the first because they are easy to locate by their public spewing of beliefs. They just disappear. Their choice would be to get in line, but then they’d have to give up fame, fortune and freedom. That’s the disconnect.
Don’t believe me? Look at what Stalin did, or Hitler, or Mao, Pol Pot, Kim Il Sing/John Il/Il Sun. They become puppets of the state, or disappear. The woke will be woken up and hauled off.
Democrats hate privately-owned vehicles because POV’s (and cheap gas) give us freedom of mobility. Ultimately, that’s what the Green New Deal agenda is about: control.— Jake Bequette (@JakeBequette91) March 7, 2022
These are clips from the headlines during Black History Month. It was to document how it was celebrated. I saw a lot of historical stories about those who lead significant lives, so I wondered how it was going currently.
What we were hoping for:
Every moment of greatness in our history belongs to all Americans, because the fruits of those triumphs have blessed all of us.
At the same time, there are both triumphs and tragedies that have been specific to the Black experience. The beautiful resistance against government tyranny that occurred at the Boston Tea Party was largely spurred by the killing of Black U.S. Army soldier Crispus Attucks by the British. Gospel, jazz and blues are beautiful, world unique musical forms that were born out of the Black experience in America. Let us celebrate those and other such triumphs during this month.
Black History Month was first officially recognized in our nation’s bicentennial year, 1976, by Republican president Gerald Ford. He encouraged Americans to “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of Black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.” Indeed, in that era, those accomplishments were largely unrecognized if not intentionally neglected.
What started as a good and noble effort to recognize achievements, has been spun into hyphenated-American political fodder. It is now a prop for the Demos’ promotion of their “systemic racism” lie. Some leftist race-baiters have even asserted that because Black History Month is February, the shortest month of the year, that is evidence of “systemic racism.”
What we got instead:
Here’s what happened during the month instead of reaching for greatness, we got this.
2/1 BLM Canada buys an 8 million dollar mansion and no accountability for the money
2/1 Shocking video footage captured the moment a brawl broke out at a Pennsylvania Golden Corral which started after a customer was enraged over the buffet chef serving another man his steak before him.
The Friday night melee had involved more than 40 people at the Bensalem location as chairs were seen being thrown in the middle of the restaurant with onlookers and staff watching in horror as the fight continued to escalate.
2/1 BLM on destroying the family: The activist-driven curriculum for the Week of Action, which kicked off Monday, is based off the 13 “Black Lives Matter Guiding Principles.” Those principles include a commitment to restorative justice, being transgender affirming and queer affirming, creating space for black families that is “free from patriarchal practices,” and “the disruption of Western nuclear family dynamics and a return to the ‘collective village’ that takes care of each other.”
2/1 James Clyburn, D SC holds Biden hostage for a black female supreme court candidate, forever marking her as a token and opinions will be diminished on any case of race or gender (instead of someone on merit, including black and females because of their merit)
2/2 Whoopi Goldberg makes racist comments about the holocaust on the Spew and gets suspended for 2 weeks
2/2 The national arm of Black Lives Matter (BLM) on Feb. 2 shut down all of its online fundraising streams, shortly after California’s Department of Justice threatened to hold the organization to account over its “lack of financial transparency,” which includes at least $60 million in undisclosed donations.
2/2 Brian Flores gets fired from the Dolphins and claims racism and victimhood for losing. Update:
The Miami Dolphins have found their new head coach. He is bi-racial so the Dolphins are not racist, they just want a good coach.
The Dolphins announced Sunday night that they’ve hired former San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel as the franchise’s new leader.
As far as the latest chapter in the never-ending story of privileged millionaires claiming victimhood status, Flores doubled down on stupid with his response to the hiring of the black Lovie Smith over his own black self. An insane public statement was released by his legal team that said the following:
“Mr. Flores is happy to hear that the Texans have hired a black head coach, Lovie Smith, as Mr. Flores’ goal in bringing his case is to provide real opportunities for black and minority candidates to be considered for coaching and executive positions in the NFL,” the statement read. “However, we would be remiss not to mention that Mr. Flores was one of three finalists for the Texans’ head coach position, and after a great interview and mutual interest, it is obvious that the only reason Mr. Flores was not selected was his decision to stand against racial inequality across the NFL.”
Translation? It was never about race, it was only about ME! No one wants a loser Brian.
2/2 For the first time, the Tennessee Senate on Wednesday voted to expel a senator, stripping Sen. Katrina Robinson of her elected position following her federal conviction on federal wire fraud charges.
2/2 Leon Harris, a former CNN host now working for a TV station in Washington, DC, was allegedly impaired when he tried to leave the scene of an auto crash in Maryland over the weekend, according to reports.
2/1 Miss USA, a black lawyer and having the world at her beckoning, instead jumps from the 30th floor in NY. She was a feminist and claimed victimhood. Neuroticism claimed another victim.
2/2 – Credible sexual assault charges against CNN host Don Lemon
2/2 Don Cornelius,Host of Soul Train exposed for abducting 2 girls at Playboy mansion for 3 days and sexually abusing them with wood bat
2/3 Alabama man beats girlfriend to death, A suspect identified as Cortez Lenard Warren, 32, has been charged in connection with the death of Madison Shea Pilkington, 25, whose family found her body Saturday, AL.com reported.
2/3 State Sen. Katrina Robinson of Memphis was convicted of wire fraud last fall after being accused of stealing $600,000 from a health care school she ran to pay for her wedding and other personal expenses before she was in office.
2/3 Timothy Briggs allegedly squeezed off 10 shots, which flew by a display of children’s toys during the wild Jan. 31 shooting. Two teens were injured in a gang related incident at a NYC Mall.
Briggs faces attempted murder and other charges while Jaheim Covington was hit with two counts of weapons possession. Both were ordered held without bail.
2/3 Vice President Kamala Harris continues to hemorrhage staff with the departure of yet another high-ranking member of her team.
Kate Childs Graham, Harris’ chief speechwriter, is leaving the vice president’s office at the end of the month. Staff are leaving citing abuse and demeaning behavior by the VP.
“People are thrown under the bus from the very top, there are short fuses and it’s an abusive environment. It’s not a healthy environment and people often feel mistreated. It’s not a place where people feel supported but a place where people feel treated like s—,” another source told Politico, which cited 22 current and former Harris aides in its report.
2/3 RICHMOND – Black Republican Aijalon Cordoza in the Virginia General Assembly said he was barred from joining the assembly’s Black Caucus because he wouldn’t tow the liberal line and wasn’t a democrat. That’s called discrimination.
2/3 ESPN and HBO personality Bomani Jones said bluntly and like a racist would say, that “white people” are the NFL’s problem following the Brian Flores lawsuit news. No, instead they fired a losing coach, which is what would happen to any losing coach. We’ve not heard much about this since.
2/3 No response from black leaders, BLM or any black official to this racist comment by Biden showing how partisan they are, demeaning the whole issue when they cry racism when they let this go by.
President Joe Biden referred to blacks as “colored” during a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday during Black History Month. No mention in the mainstream media or by black leaders. I guess that saying isn’t a racist word anymore. Certain white people get a free pass.
Biden was telling the story of seeing “colored kids” on a bus when he moved from Scranton, Pa., to Claymont, Dela.
2/3 Black Lives Matter had to shut down all of its online fundraising streams late Wednesday afternoon, just days after California threatened to hold the charity’s leaders personally liable over its lack of financial transparency. Taxes haven’t been filed since 2020 and most money was collected from blue states over George Floyd’s victimhood.
2/4 Criminals across NewYorkCity were “emboldened” by the soft-on-crime memo released by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg in the weeks before the deadly shooting of NYPD Officers Jason Rivera and Wilbert Mora, the leader of a prominent police union. This Soros bought off DA let criminals back on the street and isn’t prosecuting crimes starting with shoplifting, drugs and now robberies, so murders now.
“His message was sent to the criminal element. And this is why these cops were shot,” Paul DiGiacomo, president of New York City’s Detectives’ Endowment Association, said during a phone interview Thursday, “because you’re sending a message out there that there are no consequences for committing crimes and there are no consequences for resisting arrest.”
“Alvin Bragg thought he was doing what was popular to do, and it blew up in his face,” DiGiacomo added. Good job DA. Soros paid you off to allow more crime against black victims.
2/4 A UCLA basketball player was arrested in Arizona on Thursday and was facing an assault charge after allegedly spitting on a fan, authorities said.
Barstool Arizona, however, identified the arrested player as UCLA forward Mac Etienne.
2/4 Authorities in Kentucky have already locked up two defendants in connection with the brutal beating of a disabled Marine Corps veteran in June 2020. Now they’re trying to locate a woman who they claim is a third suspect in the case.
The at-large suspect, identified as Dairee Brown, 25, is accused of knocking on the victim’s apartment door in Covington, Kentucky, and blocking the peephole while her accomplices – Anthony Cornist, 62, and Robert Stone, 40
2/4 Vince Everett Ellison, the author of 25 Lies, explained that Democrats have formed an unholy alliance with The Iron Triangle of Black pastors, organizers, and leaders. They pretend they care about crime but they don’t. They always use terror, crime, murder to keep control. It’s a mechanism to maintain control.
The left never tries to empower individuals. Instead, they put roadblocks in front of them and force them to rely on Big Government. Mr. Ellison pointed to several lies of Joe Biden.
Ellison blames Blacks for the crime in cities. These ruthless leaders in the city have destroyed the family, the churches, economy, educational system because they want control.
2/4 NYC mayor Eric Adams makes racist statement about whites: “Every day in the police department, I kicked those crackers’ a–, man,” Adams said in the video reviewed by Fox News Digital. “I was unbelievable in the police department.” That is the equivalent of the white N-word. Good job guv. You don’t have to be white to be a racist.
2/4 Rapper C Blu was freed on bail last week for allegedly shooting a New York City officer is back behind bars on a probation violation for a prior gun case. Good career move.
2/4 In reading, 628 Patterson High School students took the test. Out of those students, 484 of them, or 77%, tested at an elementary school reading level. That includes 71 high school students who were reading at a kindergarten level and 88 students reading at a first-grade level. Another 45 are reading at a second-grade level. Just 12 students tested at Patterson High School, were reading at grade level, which comes out to just 1.9%. Patterson is 74% black and 7% white. Way to go teachers union.
2/5 While excusing slavery, human rights abuse and murder of Chinese citizens by the CCP, J.A. Adanda the director of sports journalism at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism said this on ESPN, “And who are we to criticize China’s human rights records when we have ongoing attacks by the agents of the state against unarmed citizens and we’ve got assaults on the voting rights of our people of color in various states in this country. So sports – I think it is possible and it’s necessary more than ever to just shut everything out if you are to enjoy the actual games themselves,” Adande told Reali.
2/6 Police in Virginia say the suspect accused of murdering one person and wounding four others in a shooting at a hookah lounge in Blacksburg late Friday night has been arrested.
The suspect, identified as Jamel D. Flint, 24, a black man of Roanoke, was apprehended Saturday following a manhunt,
2/6 A Black Lives Matter organizer in Memphis was sentenced to prison after she was convicted for illegally registering to vote. Pamela Moses, described by some outlets as the founder of a BLM chapter in Memphis, was sentenced to six years in prison last week after she was convicted in November 2021 for illegally registering to vote in Tennessee, according to prosecutors.
2/6 Kamala Harris has a hard time answering a simple question. Staffers say she won’t prepare or read briefing materials and then abuses her staff:
“What has gone wrong?”: Border Czar Kamala Harris struggles to answer a basic question about Biden’s historic border crisis pic.twitter.com/TW9G2D36dL
2/7 Alvin Kamara, the star NFL running back for the New Orleans Saints, was arrested Sunday shortly after playing in the Pro Bowl for his alleged involvement in a brutal beating the previous night inside a Las Vegas club.
Kamara was transported to the Clark County Detention Center, where the 26-year-old was booked for battery resulting in substantial bodily harm, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said. Police said the alleged victim identified Kamara as the suspect.
2/7 These tweets — with a photo showing Stacey Abrams maskless surrounded by masked children & showing Abrams promoting it from her own account — have now both been removed. (Abrams deleted her own tweet and it appears that the original account has been deactivated or something). pic.twitter.com/qzzAPolsE2
People pointed out: Hypocrisy, cruel to have kids in masks, kids are less likely to catch it, and masks are only supposed to help sick people not spread the virus. Also, the kids are not socially distanced. The social distance aspect is the most important part of not getting sick.
Abrams countered but did not address any of the criticism.
Instead, she used the race card because she knows it was stupid to post the photo.
2/7 A promotional ad from NBCUniversal marking Black History Month, which aired during Monday’s Today show, featured left-wing politicians and protesters but ignored Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and South Carolina Senator Tim Scott. The montage did include footage of late California Senator Shirley Chisholm, former President Barack Obama, Vice President Kamala Harris, and scores of Black Lives Matter protesters. Good job of being biased there NBC, as usual.
2/8 OROVILLE, Calif. – A 21-year-old man who was acting erratically opened fire inside a Greyhound bus in Northern California, killing a 43-year-old woman and wounding four others before he was arrested, naked, inside a Walmart after getting into a fight, authorities said.
Asaahdi Coleman started shooting at passengers as they exited the Los Angeles-bound bus after it stopped at a convenience store in the city of Oroville on Wednesday night, Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea said Thursday.

The sheriff’s office says Roger Hathaway, of La Vergne, was in court for a hearing addressing charges from 2020 where he was arrested by Brentwood Police.
2/8 This is something that Black History Month should oppose with everything they’ve got, but alas, we only hear crickets:
The Biden administration is set to fund the distribution of crack pipes to drug addicts as part of its plan to advance “racial equity.”
The $30 million grant program, which closed applications Monday and will begin in May, will provide funds to nonprofits and local governments to help make drug use safer for addicts. Included in the grant, which is overseen by the Department of Health and Human Services, are funds for “smoking kits/supplies.” A spokesman for the agency told the Washington Free Beacon that these kits will provide pipes for users to smoke crack cocaine, crystal methamphetamine, and “any illicit substance.”
2/8 Former NBA player Ty Lawson has reportedly been arrested in Europe.
According to Marca, the former Denver Nuggets guard and NBAplayer was recently arrested after he allegedly “insulted and threw glass at a customer at an Italian restaurant” in Madrid. He allegedly caused injuries to his victim.

The Tarrant County grand jury’s indictment also accuses Timothy George Simpkins of unlawfully carrying a weapon in a prohibited place at Timberview High School, which is in Arlington but belongs to the school district in neighboring Mansfield.
2/12 Not even basketball is safe from flagrant fouls and poor sportsmanship,
Clemson guard David Collins committed an insanely dirty foul Thursday night during a loss to Duke.
For reasons that I will understand, Collins decided to destroy Duke’s Wendell Moore Jr. on the fast break, and the video is tough to stomach.

2/14 Bastard of the month so far. How could anyone do this.
A Florida man was arrested Friday after he threw a family’s 14-week-old puppy against a wall while babysitting, according to reports.

Nash was charged with first-degree murder, first-degree burglary, and first-degree burglary as a sexually motivated felony. Black on Asian crime, who’s racist now?
2/15 Kentucky – The suspect arrested over the attempted assassination of Louisville mayoral candidate Craig Greenberg has been identified as BLM activist, Quintez Brown.
The Black Lives Matter movement has raised billions of dollars over the past several years. But no one seems to know how most of that money has been spent.
On 20 December 2020, The Economist noted that $10.6 billion had been pledged to causes and organisations affiliated with BLM. According to that article and further reporting from the right-leaning Daily Signal, BLM’s corporate donors included Amazon, Gatorade, Microsoft, 23andMe and Tinder, while recipients ranged from the small-scale Unicorn Riot guerilla media firm to the sizeable Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (BLMGNF).
As far as I can tell, no comprehensive or even partial audit of what happened to this staggering sum of money has ever taken place. Indeed, given the sheer number of corporate and NGO players involved, conducting one would be incredibly difficult. However, taking a look at the experience of just one BLM-affiliated organisation – BLMGNF – could give us an insight into what went on more broadly. The foundation’s story is truly remarkable.
Imagine that, stealing money.
2/16 A 9-year-old girl has died in Houston after getting shot during an unrelated robbery when the victim shot at the vehicle she was in with her family in the latest instance of gun violence that has injured or killed children in Texas’ largest city in recent weeks.
Tony Earls, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault – serious bodily injury.
You can’t just shoot innocent people.
2/16 Both @BarackObama and @JoeBiden knew @HillaryClinton was engaging in these illegal acts to fabricate the Russia Hoax.@JohnBrennan of all people told the former President, and the current one came up with the idea to use an unused, unconstitutional law. The former President is a law breaker instead of a person of honor.
2/16 Fools names like fools faces are often seen in public places:
He is a BLM activist supported by Obama. That’s 2 strikes in one day for Obama.
2/17 A Florida woman allegedly used coronavirus relief funds from the Paycheck Protection Program to hire a hitman accused of killing a Transportation Security Administration officer outside Miami last year, according to newly unsealed court documents obtained by local media.
Jasmine D. Martinez, 33, is in custody in St. Lucie County on charges of first-degree murder, attempted murder and conspiracy to commit murder, jail records show. She’s expected to be transferred to Miami-Dade custody.
2/17 “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” star Jen Shah vowed to fight the charges against her in court and not in the press.
Shah, 48, is facing multiple counts of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering. If convicted on all charges, she faces a maximum of 50 years in prison.
2/17 Lee’s murderer, Assamad Nash, a black career criminal, had multiple court cases in his wake. Instead of being locked up, he followed Christina Lee to her Chinatown apartment and was caught covered in her blood. This latest crime by Nash may be serious enough that Soros DA Alvin Bragg will feel moved to actually prosecute him and ask for actual jail time. Maybe.
Black on Asian racism and crime, again. Why do blacks hate the Asians so much?
2/18 Black leaders on Rap Music:
Instead, it is full of paeans to those who are imitating gang members in jail without belts by wearing their pants low to show their underwear, spew the n-word, who wave wads of cash, and drink fancy cognac at strip clubs.
Some leading Black voices have raised these points in the past.
The controversial Nation of Islam leader, Louis Farrakhan, exercised some influence with rap musicians and held a summit 20 years ago for hip hop entertainers.
Farrakhan spoke of deep regret at seeing rappers “being used by the enemy so that [Black people] will destroy each other.”
The late Stanley Crouch, a celebrated music critic, once wrote that rap had turned the image of young Black men into a damaging caricature of a “money-moving, gold chain-wearing, illiteracy-spouting, penis-pulling, sullen, combative buffoons.”
Harry Belafonte, the late singer, once described the rappers as “caught in a trick bag because it’s a way to make unconscionable sums of money and a way to absent yourself from any sense of moral responsibility.”
2/18 Police said Tony D. Earls, 41, was robbed and fired at the vehicle he incorrectly thought the suspect entered. The girl was taken to a hospital and was declared brain-dead, before her family decided to remove her life support, Fox 26 reported.
UPDATE #3: Sadly, the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences advised late this afternoon that the nine-year-old girl has been pronounced deceased. #HouNewshttps://t.co/X9dAEiFqHf
He was let out on bail that day. Why are these criminals allowed back on the street?
2/19 A Las Vegas woman was sentenced to eight to 20 years in prison Friday in the death of a 74-year-old man she shoved out the door of a bus in 2019.
Last month, Cadesha Bishop, 28, pleaded guilty to abuse of an older vulnerable person resulting in substantial bodily harm or death. She had originally been charged with murder, FOX 5 of Las Vegas reported.
All because she asked him to be nice to others. You’re really putting a good face on race relations there honey.
2/19 A six-time convicted felon with a pending felony drug case was charged earlier this month with throwing a bag containing $6,300 worth of individually-packaged heroin from a Lexus that belongs to the Chicago Police Department’s Chief of Internal Affairs, officials confirmed Wednesday.
Chief Yolanda Talley had loaned her car to her niece and the accused man, Kenneth Miles, is the niece’s boyfriend. Cops released Talley’s niece and allowed her to drive Talley’s car away.
Good job Yolanda. Keep track of everyone else, but let your own get away with crime.
2/19 Another hate hoax, like almost everyone that has happened, it was perpetrated by the same race it demeaned.
Cries of racism and demands for swift and strong justice have all but disappeared after it was revealed that a black student wrote the racist graffiti found at a California high school.
Last week, The Sacramento Bee reported that that the Sacramento City Unified School District was investigating racist graffiti written over a water fountain at C.K. McClatchy High School, noting that the message was a throwback to segregation
No wonder the rest of the world doesn’t buy into victimhood.
2/20 With the following in mind, why do blacks keep voting democrat? Is it the promise of free stuff in exchange for votes? Wise up and know you have been played.
2/20 What happens when you believe the media and those who use one race against another to divide people, a power grab tactic: A militant Black Lives Matter supporter arrested last week in the attempted murder of a Democratic mayoral candidate in Louisville once told a local magazine that he believed he was “at war” against perceived systemic racism in the U.S.
Quintez Brown, 21, was charged on Monday after allegedly barging into candidate Craig Greenberg’s office in Louisville and firing several shots. He is now under house arrest after a group run by Black Lives Matter posted his $100,000 bond.
A New York City Police Department (NYPD) spokesman told WNBC that Mbaye who is black, has 40 prior arrests. His record, which dates back to 2009, includes arrests for criminal possession of a weapon, assault, driving while intoxicated, and menacing, sources told the Post.
Additionally, he has 16 misdemeanor convictions on his record, prosecutors said.
“He was walking close to people moving and swinging his arm. I started watching him to see if he’d do anything,” Carmen said.
Then, she said, the man swung his arm, hitting 4 year old Angel in the face, causing him to fall backwards onto the pavement.
Hitting kids, good job there. Make your people proud of you.
2/20 One of America’s biggest criminals, Hillary Clinton has taken over the BLM money. Blacks will never see that again like Haiti didn’t see the relief money the Clinton organization was supposed to manage to help rebuild from a hurricane. They stole it like they’ll steal from BLM. Wise up guys. You got 90 million and Patrice only stole a few million for her houses before she got out.
Black Lives Matter filings reveal prominent Democratic lawyer Marc Elias and another longtime ally of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have taken on key roles in the charity amid scrutiny over its leadership and finances. Elias, best known for his funding of British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s discredited anti-Trump dossier while he served as Clinton’s 2016 campaign general counsel, appears to be representing the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation through his recently formed Elias Law Group. BLM’s national organization repeatedly lists the Elias firm as one of its addresses and states in its short-year 2020 Form 990 that its books were now in the care of the Elias Law Group.
Get rid of them now, or your money is gone.
2/21 Michigan men’s basketball coach Juwan Howard struck a Wisconsin assistant coach during a postgame altercation on Sunday, setting off a fight between the teams that prompted Michigan’s athletic director to apologize and will almost certainly result in disciplinary action against Howard.
Way to be a role model Juwan. Good luck with that job.
SAN DIEGO COUNTY, Calif. – Three suspects were busted in connection to a retail crime ring on Monday. The suspects were accused of stealing thousands of dollars in lingerie items.
The California Highway Patrol recovered 329 lingerie items, valued at more than $16,000. The underwear were allegedly stolen from Victoria’s Secret and Pink stores in malls across California.
CHP identified the suspects as 20-year-old Shyonie Davis, of San Francisco; 21-year-old Ahjanae Woods, of Antioch; and 18-year-old Wessaun Johnson, of Antioch. All three were booked into San Diego County jails, according to CHP.
The size of the bra cups told me their names. They were biggun’s.
2/21 Public Health Insider reported, “Bike helmets save lives and help prevent serious injuries. A review of several published studies estimates that bike helmets provide a 63-88% reduction in the risk of head and brain injuries for people who ride bikes. As part of the movement to encourage the use of bike helmets, the King County Board of Health passed a law in 1993 requiring anyone riding a bike to wear a helmet.
“However, data presented to the Board of Health has shown racist and discriminatory enforcement. Seattle Police Department data collected and analyzed by Seattle Neighborhood Greenways and the Helmet Law Working Group shows that police disproportionately gave helmet law citations to Black, Indigenous, and People of Color cyclists.
“Their analysis found that Black riders were nearly four times as likely to be cited by police for not wearing a helmet while biking compared to White riders.
Helmets aren’t racist. They protect you from head injuries. Don’t be a dumbass. They’ll give you one for free if you can’t afford it. Racists are racist.
2/21 New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell was pictured partying maskless during an indoor Mardi Gras event Friday night, despite reinstating the city’s COVID-19 mask mandate for schools and indoor public spaces just weeks ago.
Do as I say, not as I do. Not a good leader there girl. People notice this hypocrisy.
2/22 Progressive leaders have ushered in criminal justice reforms theoretically intended to rectify the imbalance of Black Americans who are arrested, convicted and incarcerated. But in practice, in cities like New York, these reforms have backfired, resulting in a spike in crime, with more Black Americans victimized and incarcerated. Count on democrats to promise blacks free stuff and then continue to ruin black lives and families with policies. They only care about getting black votes and not much else.
2/22 VP Harris embarrasses herself and the country over the Russia/Ukraine dispute:
Many observers were not inspired by Vice President Kamala Harris’s trip to Munich over the weekend, arguing her press conference proved she was woefully unprepared to address the geopolitical crisis brewing on Ukraine’s border.
Harris traveled to Munich to meet with several European allies in hopes of securing a united front in the event that Russia’s Vladimir Putin decides to invade Ukraine. She met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and promised “severe” economic sanctions if Russia releases its troops. However, both she and President Biden have said that Putin has already made up his mind on a potential invasion.
“I mean, listen guys, we are talking about the potential for war in Europe,” Harris said. “I mean, let’s really take a moment to understand the significance of what we’re talking about.”
Viewers called her remarks “word salad” and concluded she was “perpetually unprepared” for the critical foreign policy moment.
Give her credit for being more coherent than Biden. Although that is like putting whipped cream on a pile of dog shit. Russia invaded a couple of days later.
2/22 After 22 days of embarrassment, GOOD NEWS!
When she was a little girl, Winsome Sears emigrated to America from Jamaica. Years later, she chose to serve in the U.S. Marine Corps because, she says, “America had always been good to my family and me.”
Today, Sears is again serving her adopted country, this time as Virginia’s lieutenant governor. She made history when she was elected Nov. 2 to become the first black woman to hold that office.
Being where she is, Sears says, she is reminded of the opportunities that America affords, and that she is “an overcomer, ” adding that “many black people are overcomers.”
“I am here in the former capital of the Confederacy, for goodness sake,” she says. “I am second in command. Second in command. I’m a black woman. I am not first-generation American.”
2/22 Two black teenaged boys are in custody in connection to a triple murder after a five-year-old Michigan boy was killed execution-style inside his Detroit home along with his mother and her boyfriend.
Caleb Harris, who had been shot multiple times in the face, was found Sunday inside the home along with his mother, Lashon Marshall, 28, and her boyfriend, Aaron Benson, 32, according to Detroit Police. Police wouldn’t say how Marshall and Benson might have been killed.
Black lives matter? It doesn’t seem that way.
2/22 The alleged leader of a Philadelphia carjacking ring tied to two murders was arrested last week and could be linked to other incidents, authorities said Tuesday.
Jonathan Akubu, 28, was taken into custody Friday following a weeks-long crime spree, officials said. He is now charged with arson, conspiracy to commit carjacking, aggravated assault and with the Feb. 6 murder of George Briscella, a Marine Corps veteran and the son of a Philadelphia police officer, and the Feb. 12 killing of Aiah Gbessay.
Every day it’s the same story. Crime and a lack of morals. Where are the black leaders except to play victims to extort money in the name of racism?
2/23 Three commissioners were overwhelmingly re-called because of a racist agenda that even SF couldn’t get behind. People are getting tired of woke and racism.
Parents and residents in San Francisco voted to recall the three left-wing members last week, as The Daily Wire reported. Citizens launched the effort targeting President Gabriela López, Vice President Faauuga Moliga, and Commissioner Alison Collins last month alleging the members were not focusing on schools reopening during COVID-19 and sought to rename 44 schools based on politics.
They are whining of victimhood because they didn’t get their way. No one likes false victimhood either. Crying racism at every time you don’t get your way is running out of steam, like crying wolf.
2/23 Zac Stacy has been charged with three counts of misdemeanor domestic violence battery and two counts of misdemeanor criminal mischief in connection with an alleged 2021 attack on his ex-girlfriend.
An NFL athlete beating the hell out of a girl. You’re a real man there Zac. Enjoy jail. You did it in front of the kids so way to be a stand up Dad also, asshole.
2/23 The day after Kamala Harris went to the Ukraine to resolve the dispute with Russia, Putin attacked. She was shrugged off like a fly on a horses ass. Putin barely recognized that she exists. No one has been more insignificant as she is as a VP, having already failed the country with the southern border debacle. Nice goin’ girl.
2/25 Two of the co-founders of cryptocurrency derivatives exchange BitMEX have pleaded guilty to violating U.S. anti-money-laundering law and agreed to each pay a $10 million fine.
Arthur Hayes and Benjamin Delo admitted to violating the Bank Secrecy Act’s anti-money-laundering provisions during a hearing Thursday in New York federal court. Both men entered the pleas after reaching agreements with prosecutors.
2/25 In an affirmative action motivated hire, instead of considering the best talent which would include a black man, President Joe Biden planned to nominate federal appellate judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to become the first Black woman to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court, a source familiar told Reuters on Friday.
Were he to promote only a white woman, this would be the discrimination as his current pick is. She will forever be tainted in cases that involve either gender or race as the pick is discriminatory. It is a shame for black women to be branded with this scarlet letter.
“Judge Jackson’s record of reversals by the left-leaning D.C. Circuit is troubling for anyone concerned about the rule of law,” Judicial Crisis Network president Carrie Severino told Fox News Digital on Tuesday. “For example, in Make the Road New York v. Wolf, a D.C. Circuit panel composed of a majority of Democratic nominees concluded that Jackson had set aside a Trump administration rule where there was no legal basis to do so.”
“Cases like these suggest that Jackson might be willing in politically charged cases to ignore the law to deliver a particular policy outcome, and that’s not what we want to see from a Supreme Court justice,” she continued.
2/25 Darth Stupid Lloyd Austin said this:
Earlier in a report from the Washington Examiner, yesterday, SecDef Lloyd Austin told lawmakers that “the Biden administration is looking for ways to help train Ukrainian forces remotely.” This isn’t a joke. This was something said by a member of the Biden Administration. As Russian forces roll over Ukraine, Biden and Austin want to train the Ukrainian forces remotely.
The man is unqualified to be anything but being in the Washington deep state system. He is an embarrassment to black politicians for being an uncle Tom to the Biden administration.
2/26 At least 23 of America’s 25 most prestigious medical colleges and universities have some form of mandatory student training or coursework on ideas related to critical race theory (CRT), according to CriticalRace.org, which monitors CRT curricula and training in higher education.
“The racialization of medical school education is troubling. It’s one thing to recognize the health needs of different populations, it’s entirely different to inject racial politics into medical care. Demanding that medical school students become activists is dangerous,” William Jacobson told Fox News Digital.
2/26 The time that has elapsed since the launch of the left’s racial witch hunt has provided ample opportunity to expose the malicious, self-serving criminal agendas of the Black Lives Matter movement. These have nothing to do with the welfare of black communities, which have not received a penny of the tens of millions of dollars raised in their name. Contributions to Black Lives Matter have gone to line the pockets and enhance the real estate portfolios of its leaders. Meanwhile, the chief victims of the homicides unleashed by their actions have been poor black inner-city communities — with no show of concern by Black Lives Matter and its allies.
2/27 – Green anti-racism, seriously (Oh, really just CRT lies)?
But it doesn’t have to actually make sense for it to be rhetorically effective. The Left has learned that whenever you have a problem, you call it racist.
And whenever you want something to appear ideal, you say it’s ‘eco-friendly’.
So green anti-racism is logically where you should end up if youre pretending to care about these marginalized groups and their living spaces (although this does smack as a very heteronormative idea to my cisgender ear since there’s no mention of “Ecosexuality“).
Even if we made a genuinely good-faith attempt at extrapolating some vague meaning from the concept of ‘environmental racism’, you have to ignore large swathes of reality to get there.
Let’s pretend that environmental problems disproportionately affect marginalized communities and this is a serious source of harm…Are these theorists saying it’s entirely purposeful? Are there white male uber-capitalists sipping brandy and pushing toxic waste playing chips across the Risk board to ‘racialized’ neighborhoods?
This is exactly the assertion and is a direct outgrowth of CRT. As Critical Race skeptic James Lindsay accurately points out: “CRT is the belief system that racism which benefits white people is the fundamental organizing principle of society”.
2/27 Loud proponent for inequality, the poor and downtrodden Meghan Markle donned a custom Christopher John Rogers dress worth an estimated $2,600 adorned with $9,000 in jewels, (and a $348,000 engagement ring) as she stood alongside husband Prince Harry on Saturday night to accepted the President’s Award at the NAACP Image Awards.
This drips with hypocrisy, oh well.
2/28 Still failing as a leader, Obama said this to Romney in 2012. It may have been the only thing Romney got right, but it shows how wrong Obama was with respect to vision and leadership.
2/28 CRT exposes as just Marxism in a thinly veiled cover to have racism switch sides against non POC.
In Race Marxism, James Lindsay carefully and with robust scholarship shows how Critical Race Theory is nothing more than repackaged Marxism. As practitioners of Marxism have failed to divide this country against each other by class, they have turned to racial division to enact their agenda as well as to gain power and influence.
With precision that highlights his math background, Lindsay deftly demonstrates that Critical Race Theory = Race Marxism.
Though the six chapters of Race Marxism, Lindsay explains what Critical Race Theory is, where it comes from, how it is implemented, and what can be done about it once it is understood to be repackaged Marxism. Lindsay offers a broad spectrum of quotes and background information supplied from proponents and Critical Race Theory activists.
(1) Calling everything one wants to control “racist” until it is fully under your control. (2) A Marxian conflict theory of race; i.e., Race Marxism (3) A belief that racism created by white people for their own benefit is the fundamental organizing principle of society
Another Memphis rapper has been shot and killed … just in the last few months. All meaningless deaths that could have been avoided.
Snootie Wild succumbed to his injuries after being shot Friday in Houston. His death was announced Saturday night on his Instagram page … “Gone in body, but your NAME & LEGACY will live forever! #TeamYayo4Life.”
2/28 In a blatant example of how Biden takes the black vote for granted and used it as a political chess piece:
Joe Biden is now smearing Republicans from his presidential podium with an ugly falsehood, saying that Republicans are trying to prevent black votes from even counting:
This is another one of Biden’s despicable race-baiting lies and he did it at a Black History Month celebration.
There’s no truth to this claim whatsoever and everyone knows it. But the media will let him get away with this garbage because they want to defeat Republicans, despite one brave CNN host debunking his lies earlier this year.
Is the Great Reset a conspiracy theory imagining a vast left-wing plot to establish a totalitarian one-world government? No. Despite the fact that some people may have spun conspiracy theories based on it—with some reason, as we will see—the Great Reset is real.
Indeed, just last year, Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF)—a famous organization made up of the world’s political, economic, and cultural elites that meets annually in Davos, Switzerland—and Thierry Malleret, co-founder and main author of the Monthly Barometer, published a book called COVID-19: The Great Reset. In the book, they define the Great Reset as a means of addressing the “weaknesses of capitalism” that were purportedly exposed by the COVID pandemic.
But the idea of the Great Reset goes back much further. It can be traced at least as far back as the inception of the WEF, originally founded as the European Management Forum, in 1971. In that same year, Schwab, an engineer and economist by training, published his first book, Modern Enterprise Management in Mechanical Engineering. It was in this book that Schwab first introduced the concept he would later call “stakeholder capitalism,” arguing “that the management of a modern enterprise must serve not only shareholders but all stakeholders to achieve long-term growth and prosperity.” Schwab and the WEF have promoted the idea of stakeholder capitalism ever since. They can take credit for the stakeholder and public-private partnership rhetoric and policies embraced by governments, corporations, non-governmental organizations, and international governance bodies worldwide.
Ever wonder how 190 Governments could operate in “Lockstep” enforcing Lockdowns, Social Distancing, Mask Mandates, Vaccine Mandates over a 99.9% survivable “Virus” nobody has a genetic sample of? Their leaders may be one of 1600 who graduated from Klaus Schwab’s Young Global Leaders School. Schwab was mentored by Bohemian Grove, 33 deg Freemason, Jesuit, Vietnam War architect Henry Kissinger. Famous grads: Mrs Schwab Nicole Schwab, Bill Gates (Microsoft), Rockefeller Foundation CEO Rajiv Shah, Angela Merkel (Hitler’s daughter), Rhodes Scholars Tony Blair (Knight Noble Order of the Garter) and Pete Buttigieg, Nicolas Sarkozy, Emanuel Macron, Viktor Orban (Hungarian PM), Sebastian Kurz (Austrian Chancellor), Jeff “Burning Man” Bezos (Amazon), Jack Ma (Alibaba; CCP Alipay), Richard Branson (Virgin), Peter Thiel (PayPal, Palantir), Leonardo DiCaprio (Global Climate Change Actor), Anderson Cooper, Bono, Steffi Graf, Tony Hawk, Meghan Rapino, Mark Zuckerberg (Meta), Sergei Brin and Larry Page (Google), Elon Musk (Tesla, Space X, StarLink), Jimmy Wales (Wikipedia), Ashton Kucher, Charlize Theron, Maria Bartiromo (Money Honey), Jacinda (Jason) Ardern, Kirill Dmitriev (Russian Direct Investment Funding of Gamaleya Sputnik V) Gavin Newsome (CA Fires), Chelsea Clinton, Bobby Jindal (Geo-engineered Hurricane Katrina), Tulsi Gabbard. Mentors: Christine Lagarde, Edomite Queen Rania of Jordan, BlackRock Group CEO Crypto Jew Larry Fink, Carlyle Group War Profiteer David Rubenstein, Inconvenient Liar Al Gore, Bain & Company Israeli money launderer Orit Gadeish (took over from Mitt Romney), Turkish Sultan for life Reccip Tayyip Erdogan. Network: Druid Collective (Druid: Dru=Tree of Knowledge) Purpose: “Shape the Future” by collapsing global economies and “Building Back Better” to effect the “Great Reset” through GESARA (Global Economic Security and Recovery Act)
Putin and Russia
Next is Putin. He’s made his play for the Ukraine, but is also giving the middle finger to NATO, who is supposed to protect the world from Russian dominance. He also owns the EU countries as they were dumb enough to cede their source of energy from his. If he shuts off the supply, countries like Germany have no backup. They stopped their nuclear plants and bought into the sustainable energy lies.
What is interesting is that Putin used to be in Schwab’s WEF cult. It seems that ultimate power corrupts and his loyalty is to himself. It is hard to bow to another leader so he’s rolling his own for now.
Mr. Putin sent repeated signals that he intended to widen Russia’s sphere of influence and cast the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s eastward expansion as an existential threat to Moscow’s security. He made plain he viewed Ukraine as part of Russia.
Yet until recently few Western leaders imagined Mr. Putin would go through with a full-scale invasion, having miscalculated his determination to use force—on a scale that recalls the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968—to restore Russian control over the nations on its periphery.
How do you think the West should have handled Putin from the start? Join the conversation below.
Russian forces moved by air and land to attack Kyiv on Friday after launching an invasion Wednesday. A Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said Russia was ready for negotiations, but the goals of its combat operation to “demilitarize” Ukraine remained.
“It was strategic narcissism and an associated failure to consider the emotion, ideology, and aspiration that drives Putin and the Siloviki around him,” said H.R. McMaster, the retired three-star Army general who served as former U.S. President Donald Trump’s national security adviser, referring to the small circle of hard-line advisers around the Russian president.
Next is the China (CCP) and Xi
He has been executing a plan of subversion for a long time by stealing technology, buying off US politicians, academicians and celebrities. He also has used his population to manufacture much of what the US needs critically like cheap technology, medicines and household goods. Buying influence from the corrupt is easy.
He unleashed the China Covid-19 virus on the world and is committing genocide on his population.
For weeks, China’s foreign-policy establishment dismissed a steady stream of warnings from the U.S. and its European allies about a pending Russian invasion, and instead blamed Washington for hyping the Russian threats.
Now, China is trying to regain its balance after making a calculation that could seriously undermine a position it has tried to build for itself as a global leader and advocate for developing nations.
As late as this week, with signs looming of an impending invasion, when a well-connected foreign-policy scholar in China gave a talk to a group of worried Chinese investors and analysts, he titled the speech “A War That Won’t Happen.”
“We see little chance of Russia unilaterally declaring war on Ukraine,” Shen Yi, a professor of international relations at Shanghai’s Fudan University who advises the government, said at the Tuesday teleconference held by a securities firm, according to people who dialed into the call.
Here are a few of the headlines I’ve found – the only ones allowed on the internet recently.
“China says US creating ‘fear and panic’ over Ukraine” – AP
“China refuses to call Russian attack on Ukraine an ‘invasion,’ deflects blame to U.S.” – CNBC
“China nods to Russia’s interests in attack on Ukraine” – WSJ
“China refuses to condemn Russian attack, deflects blame to U.S.” – Bloomberg
“Biden takes veiled swipe at China in condemning Russia backers on Ukraine” – Reuters
What does this mean?
It means that Russia is allied with China – and so is Iran. Think of it as a tripartite alliance – an anti-American and anti-Israel one.
Do you think they fear each other – the two largest countries next to each other in the world? They don’t anymore – and have not for a long time. They both have business to take care of in the short term. China has usurped Hong Kong and has Taiwan in its immediate crosshairs. Russia is reassembling the former Soviet Union starting with Ukraine, Georgia and Belarus and then the Baltic nations.
No one in the United States bothers to talk about the China virus anymore – especially the radical left. It’s one of the topics you can’t talk about in polite company. They are bought off by the CCP.
Nor can we talk about the Uyghurs, a people living in Chinese concentration camps and marked for extinction through forced abortions.
If I lived in Taiwan, I’d feel like a giant bullseye was on me as Xi doesn’t fear what the rest of the world will do. He took over Hong Kong and Biden cowardly surrendered Afghanistan in one of histories greatest blunders by a leader. It is comparable to what Neville Chamberlain did with Hitler.
Why can’t we talk about it?
Because we don’t have a free press anymore thanks to Big Tech – another one of the allies of the Chinese Communists.
All Joe Biden would say about the Chinese insofar as their position on Russia and Ukraine is that they will be “stained” by it. He was careful to say nothing further because Beijing has the goods on him. He was former business partners with Russia, China and Ukraine.
No where in this post is the US being one of the world leaders. At best, those governing are either bought off by the Chinese, or are WEF converts. That means for the first time in one hundred years that the USA isn’t worrying anyone trying to take over the world. Much of congress has ties to either the CCP or the WEF. Biden obviously has received money from the Chinese, the Russians and has obeyed the WEF Covid church with the vaccine mandates which are just a power grab.
So it’s Xi vs Putin vs Schwab. They are intertwined, and battle each other for their portion of the world they wish to dominate. Usually, power hungry leaders eat each other. The Chinese will surely backstab anyone. Putin has to battle the WEF and Schwab’s army is lead by idiots, like Trudeau and Biden.
All three want to rule the world, just in 3 different ways. As always, it’s the people that will suffer greatly. Schwab let Covid kill instead of helping stop it. Putin and Xi are killing right now People are just playing cards to these guys.
Protect yourself. Know your enemy better than he knows you.
I get statistics on views, country and other aspects of each post.
Recently, I criticized Canada and bingo, no traffic. I’ve dinged China for the Wuhan virus and right on queue, traffic cut off. Bear in mind I had multiple hits from each of these countries for stuff I posted yesterday and 10 years ago. WordPress is cutting it off. Since it is associated with Google, I’m sure they are censoring me also. I’m ok with it because they can’t silence everyone.
If you follow the blogs I read, we are all on the same page and see through the crap of Big Tech, Governments and other power hungry groups.
Now that Putin has attacked the Ukraine, the readers I had there get nothing from me. I’m about to jump on their leader’s actions soon, so again, I’m not surprised.
I might have to switch hosting platforms, we’ll see. It’s a pain, but it comes with the territory. Welcome to 1984 and the ministry of truth.
It’s not going to stop me. I do it mostly for me anyway. That others read it is a bonus for them if they learn to be independent and not serve the masters of censorship.
Education, information and independence are priceless
The fact is, you could pick most categories and NY would have the rudest people in the country.
One of the reasons Americans have a bad reputation in Europe for being rude, pushy, loud and arrogant is that the New Yorker’s went there first.
My home office was in New York for my last job. Because of the industry I worked in, I had to go there all the time. They were rude then and rude now. This survey is nothing new. The worst employees were from or near New York.
I left Florida because the city I lived in was the rudest in the country that year. It was also a city for the most transplanted New Yorker’s. Most of my neighbors constantly told me how much better it was in “the city”. Go the hell back and quit ruining other people’s lives.
One of my college roommates was from New York. You guessed it, another asshole.
The best thing about New York is that it is there and not where I live. Unfortunately, their government makes it so tax expensive and crime ridden, they keep leaving the compound.
I decided to watch a mini-series that takes place in NY. I looked at the buildings and recalled all of the times I hated being there. It is a dump, infested by rats, parasites, and other people. I guess it also has a lot of actual rats.
While I’m kvetching, the various NY accents grind on me. Nothing can make a pretty girl go ugly faster than her opening her mouth about coiffee, ya mutha and oi, La Gwadia eeport.
Hey, watch where you’re going and get a load of this app! It says New York City has the rudest Uber passengers in the nation.
A new survey from the ride-sharing giant has found that — surprise, surprise — Uber passengers in the Big Apple are the worst in the US when it comes to manners, while riders in the Midwest and Sun Belt are significantly nicer.
The regional ranking is based on average rider ratings doled out by Uber drivers — one to five stars based on whether passengers show up on time, leave trash in vehicles or talk to their drivers respectfully, among other factors.
New York is trailed by the fellow rude cities of Seattle, Washington, D.C. and Boston, according to Uber. Minneapolis-St. Paul takes the No. 5 spot, followed by San Francisco, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Baltimore and Chicago. (note: they are all liberal cities whose governments have ruined with their polices)
News of New York City’s dubious distinction comes after several outright attacks on Big Apple drivers in recent years.
The end of girls sports can be blamed on feminism and the Ivy League. They have failed to stand up for the females and have bowed the knee to political correctness by letting men kick ass on the rest of the girls and the record book. Of all groups, you’d think the pink pussy hat group of cackling Karen’s would at least stand up for their own.
The Ivy League are supposed to be smart people producing smart people. They are revealing a new level of stupidity that only the woke could deliver at this level of idiocy. They continue to under perform in producing a quality education experience and over perform in the price charged for this lack of education. They are good at woke though. It’s no coincidence that they are the premier of the left also.
The rest of us in the real world (the one’s who think they are elite call us the flyover states) know that men are stronger than women and that this is ruining things for girls sports.
Lia Thomas Breaks Pool Record of Olympian Kate Ziegler In 500 Freestyle Win at Ivy League Champs
One night after posting the fastest split in the 800-yard freestyle relay, the University of Pennsylvania’s Lia Thomas captured her first individual title at the Ivy League Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships. Thomas, a transgender woman, produced a winning time of 4:37.32, which was more than seven seconds quicker than the 4:44.83 clocked by teammate Catherine Buroker for second place.
A three-year member of Penn’s men’s team, Thomas transitioned to female during the COVID-19 pandemic and is in her first season as a member of the women’s team. Her performance at the Ivy League Champs established a Blodgett Pool record, breaking the mark of Olympian Kate Ziegler, and just missed the meet record of 4:36.37, set in 2020 by Ellie Marquardt of Princeton. Marquardt was third on Thursday night in 4:46.63.
One of the few times I have anything good to say about social media, they cheered the second place finisher who was an actual girl in the women’s events.
Since no one will call out the tranny’s for ruining Title IX and girls sports, guys have turned it into co-ed sports.
I’m a mom, a coach and a Team USA World Masters track athlete who is fighting for something greater than another gold medal: I’m standing for the protection of women’s sports.
If male-bodied athletes continue competing on female teams, it will be the end of women’s sports. This is no exaggeration; this is reality, and it’s happening right now.
At the 2018 World Masters Athletics Championships in Málaga, Spain, I competed in the 200-meter race against a male-bodied athlete, whom I beat by only a few tenths of a second. The next year, the same athlete beat my teammate in the hurdles for a place on the podium at the 2019 World Championship indoor meet in Poland. My teammate had trained harder than anyone I know.
It wasn’t just on the world stage that I experienced the demoralizing trend of male-bodied athletes displacing females from their own competitions; it was also on my home island of Maui, Hawaii.
Instead of being known for being nice and apologizing, (eh), we now have dictatorial government more beholden to Klaus Schwab (WEF) than the people, who takes money from your bank account if you say you liked Trump or support Truck Drivers.
As for me:
SHOCK: Trudeau’s justice minister says that being “pro-Trump” is a factor that will decide if your bank account is seized under their Emergency Orders. https://t.co/Ez5GPgvup1
Ottawa will even take away your pets. What will happen to your pets? Breitbart News reported:
While other branches of the Humane Society describe themselves as “no-kill” shelters, such as the Etobicoke Humane Society, a 2015 article on the Ottawa Humane Society website, written by Executive Director Bruce Roney, notes the shelter does euthanize animals.
After no one gave a shit that they were off, combined with them not getting money for work they did in the 70’s, the two whiners quietly came back to Spotify.
It turns out that their hippie culture couldn’t override greed and capitalism. That and Joe Rogan is way more popular. So much in fact that everyone was willing to let the two Karen’s go away to keep him.
Many people also realized that they like free speech and that Rogan had some actual scientists with facts that turned out to be true about Covid and Climate Change. The two pot addled brains who thought there was someone who cared about their him or me stance gave up in less than a week.
I like Joni Mitchell’s music, but Young’s is crap since he left CSNY. I missed neither.
Now maybe if we stand up to other celebtards, woke, politicians, libtards, the LGBFJBQ+ and others that make everyone miserable, we could enjoy our lives a lot more. Assholes like Young and Mitchell don’t live in the real world. They got their asses yanked back into it quickly.
