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.
China owns them now. The owners have over $10 billion invested in the country most invested in us failing, because we are in their way of their domination.
There are very few instances of racism greater than the Chinese against everyone, not just POC, all people not Chinese.
I’ll lose more followers and get pushed down in the search algorithm, but that is not why I do this.
I stopped watching when they went woke a long time ago. From what I’ve seen, it’s all 3 point bombs and a lot of 1 on 1 instead of a team game. I’ve not missed a thing and welcomed the time back to watch something entertaining.
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.
2/8 NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) — A 32-year-old man is accused of assaulting Williamson County Sheriff’s deputies last week during a court hearing.
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.

Illinois law enforcement announced Friday that Kaliyeha Clark-Mabins, a black female college student, will be charged with three counts of disorderly conduct for filing a false police report.
Kevin Schmoll, the chief of police for Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, made the announcement on Friday. The College Fix had started asking questions about the investigation last week.
2/8 ESPN is racist instead of having hosts on because of talent.
One ESPN reporter talked about some of the backroom conversations of people complaining about too many white hosts.
Another ESPN audio specialist reveals how ESPN wants to be the face of BLM instead of .
2/10 A 9-year-old Alabama girl was charged with assault after allegedly using a broomstick to beat her younger brother, who later died, records show. Court records show that Yolanda Coale, the boy’s aunt and legal guardian, told officers she awoke Thursday to the sound of the children screaming. She said she found the girl hitting her brother with a broom stick, causing injuries. Officers called to the home found the boy unresponsive, and Coale, 53, was charged with aggravated child abuse the next day.
2/10 A Texas woman is accused of straddling her mother in what she called a “prayer position,” suffocating her in November, authorities said.

2/11 ESPN is blatantly racist, but in a different way:
I always knew many of the hosts at @ESPN were blatantly racist towards their white counterparts – we now have confirmation with #ProjectVeritas leaks.
Hell, ESPN had to fire @jemelehill for being a bigot. Yeah they claimed it was a mutual parting… BS.#ExposeESPN
2/11 A North Carolina man was arrested this week on charges that he sexually assaulted a family member over a three-year period.
William Ray Clark, 52, is facing 380 counts of child sex offenses, including first-degree statutory rape.
2/12 An 18-year-old student was indicted Friday on attempted murder and aggravated assault charges for an Oct. 6 shooting at a Dallas-area high school that wounded two students and a teacher. 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.
2/12 Black on Black white collar crime:
Former NFL player Robert McCune will spend several years behind bars.
According to USA Today, the former Browns and Ravens linebacker has been sentenced to five years in prison for his role in a schemeinvolving several former players that defrauded the National Football League’s Player Health Reimbursement Account Plan.

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.
The suspect, identified as Willie Earl Capehart, 62, was supposed to be watching the puppy and two children at a residence in the St. Petersburg area when the kids heard a loud bang and the sound of a door slamming from another room, according to St. Petersburg police.
2/14 Adrian Peterson, former NFL MVP and current free agent, was arrested Feb. 13 at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) after an alleged domestic violence incident on board a jet. Way to be a role model.
2/15 A New York City man has been charged with first-degree murder on Monday after police say he followed a woman into her Chinatown apartment where he attacked her and stabbed her more than 40 times.
Assamad Nash, 25, was located by police under his alleged victim’s bed in the early morning hours Sunday and was taken into custody, officials said. His alleged victim was identified as Christina Yuna Lee, who was 35.
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.
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.
The United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is getting tough on COVID misinformation spreaders, i.e., people who spread information that “undermines public trust in government institutions.”
Since the DHS has finite resources to pursue all these perpetrators, as a public service, I have created a list of what I believe are some of the country’s top misinformation spreaders.
I sincerely hope that the DHS will focus its efforts on these individuals since they have made statements and/or taken actions (or refused to take action) that have resulted in the undermining of public trust in US government institutions.
These people need to be stopped now and I’m grateful that the DHS is finally taking this seriously as innocent lives are being lost.
The DHS memo
Read this memo issued Monday, entitledSummary of Terrorism Threat to the U.S. Homeland.
In particular, check out this section:
To make their job easier to pursue these spreaders of COVID-19 misinformation, I’ve compiled a list of the Disinformation Dozen, the top spreaders of COVID disinformation that are literally killing people through spreading misinformation about COVID.
My Disinformation Dozen list – Yes, you are going to have to click to see, but it’s worth it to know who the biggest liars are and who are screwing us the worst. You know some of the names without looking.
The media crucified every statement, action, tweet and anything else Trump did for 5 years, including his primary year. These same assholes give a pass to a gaffe proned career politician. Almost everything they accused 45 of, 46 did it. 45 rarely did what they accused him of.
What’s ironic is that Trump had nothing to do with #FJB or #letsgobrandon. Biden did that himself with his actions and policies.
I lived through the Carter years. It doesn’t have to be this way. Our country was back on track a year after Reagan was elected. We will be back on track if they stop the idiocy that is occurring right now in Washington.
I’ve stayed away from talking about Biden, like I stayed away from Trump. I’m not going to try to change anyone’s opinion of either, nor will I change mine. Politics is poison, so I’ll talk economics instead (OK, I’ll make a few sarcastic points because, that’s why).
I do see how this problem can easily be solved.
Today, the President announced that he’s opening up the strategic oil reserve to bring down the prices. This is little more than a band aid to a problem rather than a solution. That reserve was meant for a crisis, of which we are not in right now. By crisis, I mean an attack, an actual climate disaster like a hurricane or a non man made disruption in fuel production.
When taking office, he shut down production of fossil fuels via the Keystone Pipeline, Fracking and other independent (of other countries) production of oil. All was done in the name of sustainable sources and devices like electric cars. What is not said is that the generators of electricity are fossil fuel based, even for a Tesla. Also not said is we are not ready for decades to leave oil as a base for our energy and electricity needs.
The cynical me steps back and looks at the executive orders signed and it seems that Biden is just against anything the previous president did. Lots of presidents do that. One of them was energy independence. Recently, he asked the Saudi’s to produce more for us, although we have the ability to be the largest producer and exporter. They thumbed their noses at us.
To me, if you produce more, the price would go down. It seemed to work a couple of years ago and there is no reason not to have it work again. Stop the restrictions on fracking (which helped reduce our carbon footprint btw), get rid of the restrictions on fracking and get rid of the bureaucratic laws against our being energy independent and the price goes back down. It has nothing to do with production anywhere else, other than driving down the price worldwide.
It would be a step in the right direction of inflation reduction.
Tapping the strategic oil reserved leaves us with our pants down in the case of an actual emergency.
I’m pretty sure most who have an IQ above a grain of rice could see this and know I’m stating the obvious.
Do I expect this to happen? Not a chance. I lived through lines during the Carter years and expect the same to happen until production returns. It’s simple economics.
It’s time to put pettiness aside and do what is right for the people of the country. It’s not getting better than it was. Cutting fuel costs would be a good start.
Where is this coming from? It’s supplied by China and coming across the Mexican border. Is there anyone who doubts this other than the NYT? Are any of the alphabet networks reporting this fact? No and no.
The fentanyl boom in recent years represents a third wave of the opioid epidemic, following first an increase in the abuse of prescription painkillers around the turn of the century and then a rise in heroin use. But the fentanyl phase is different in that it involves an international operation of people in multiple countries working together to produce and transport the drugs and then secretly shuttle the profits across U.S. borders.
Chinese money launderers and fentanyl-makers have gone into business with Mexican drug cartels, teaming up to make billions of dollars a year trafficking the powerful opioid that is killing thousands of people in the U.S.
The fentanyl ingredients are sent from labs in Wuhan, China, to Mexico, where the final product is made. It is then sneaked over the U.S.-Mexico border and dispersed nationwide, often put into other drugs in an attempt to hook a user of meth or cocaine on this new substance.
Through the decades, federal law enforcement at the U.S.-Mexico border has seized millions of pounds of drugs that cartels attempted to smuggle into the U.S. Nearly all of the drugs seized were marijuana, but marijuana seizures have significantly declined in recent years. Unlike marijuana, fentanyl can be produced year-round and is more profitable, part of the reason cartels are abandoning marijuana.
I wonder why the government doesn’t react to this to put a stop to it. Still, why aren’t they doing something about it?
I get that the current group in charge is trying to undo anything that the last regime put into place, but how about trying to protect the US citizen’s.
Here is the amount of Fentanyl it takes to kill someone. They are shipping in tons of the stuff.
Can we stop this please? Protect us from the CCP and the Mexican Cartels.
I was made aware of her when she left CBS when her computer was hacked by the FBI/DOJ, and she wouldn’t stand for it. She currently is in mid-trial against them and I’m on her side. (Link here to her site)
Why I follow her is that she is actually independent in her views. Any post that have written that has the tag MSM shows my contempt for the press, their bias and lack of journalistic skills. They have become the propaganda tool for political parties. Note, I don’t excuse Fox News either because they have been on an island for their views, but still are not unbiased. The rest are fully ensconced on the left.
I also have been clear about my respect for those who write well. She is among them. She also has established an independent online show and podcast. Disclosure: I follow her blog and podcast.
I spent my career working with TV, Radio, print and online journalists. There are very few that I ended with any respect once they made their bias known.
Just to prove that she is a better writer than me, here is an excerpt from her book, Slanted.
The five-time Emmy Award-winning investigative reporter and New York Times bestselling author of Stonewalled and The Smear uncovers how partisan bias and gullibility are destroying American journalism.
The news as we once knew it no longer exists. It’s become a product molded and shaped to suit the narrative. Facts that don’t fit are omitted. Off-narrative people and views are controversialized or neatly deposited down the memory hole. Partisan pundits, analysts and anonymous sources fill news space leaving little room for facts. The line between opinion and fact has disappeared.
In Slanted, Sharyl Attkisson reveals with gripping detail the struggles inside newsrooms where journalism used to rule. For the first time, dozens of current and former top national news executives, producers and reporters give insider accounts, speaking with shocking candor about their industry’s devolution.
For those who understand how hard it is to write well, I encourage you to go to read her work. It is a breath of fresh air in the cesspool of what is journalism and the MSM are.
I swear to fulfill, to the best of my ability and judgment, this covenant: I will respect the hard-won scientific gains of those physicians in whose steps I walk, and gladly share such knowledge as is mine with those who are to follow. I will apply, for the benefit of the sick, all measures [that] are required, avoiding those twin traps of overtreatment and therapeutic nihilism. I will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon’s knife or the chemist’s drug.
DENVER (KDVR) — A patient on the kidney transplant list was moved to inactive status by UCHealth for not receiving a COVID-19 vaccine. Her living donor is also unvaccinated and UCHealth said both need to be vaccinated for the transplant process to continue.
The letter Leilani Lutali received states: “The transplant team at University of Colorado Hospital has determined that it is necessary to place you inactive on the waiting list. You will be inactivated on the list for non-compliance by not receiving the COVID vaccine. You will have 30 days to begin the vaccination series. If your decision is to refuse COVID vaccination you will be removed from the kidney transplant list. You will continue to accrue waiting time, but you will not receive a kidney offer while listed inactive. Once you complete the COVID vaccination series you will be reactivated on the kidney transplant list pending any other changes in your health condition.”
The Big Pharma are greedy for money from new medicines. Big Government is using Covid for the Re-Set with socialism and to take power and Bill Gates and the WHO want depopulation. Big Tech is covering simple and cheap solutions like this from everyone they can.
India said eff-you and gave everyone this and Ivermectin and have killed Covid off where it is used.
To get a full understanding of how bad it is, the WSJ ran a series on the Facebook files recently. Link here but it might require a subscription. It points out the obvious, but also that it’s such a screwed up company now that it can’t get out of it’s own way.
It talked about how it ruins the lives of people, especially teen aged girls. Zuckerberg then said how it enhances peoples lives in a washing machine spin of doublespeak.
They block who they don’t like and let who they do like post anything, even against their own policies.
Fortunately, I don’t care as I cancelled them. It along with Twitter are helping to ruin the country and people’s lives around the world. It has taken a political position on things. I don’t care which side it picks, but it should have been a neutral platform.
Instead, it is now a high school place where you are a part of the in crowd or not. Those with a triple digit IQ should move to a better and more productive place, like going outside and enjoying life.
It was too childish for me and I didn’t want to open it anymore to see the spew that comes from it.
I still talk to those who really are my friends. Most of them were never on Facebook.
For Introverts, not being on it also lets you escape from a lot of noise that sucks your personal energy and time.
It is probably the greatest game show created. It’s intellectually challenging. The others are generally tripe that targets those needing mindless entertainment or try to rip off Jeopardy.
I’ve realized that Alex Trebek was one of the best ever at this type of job and was significantly a reason for it’s success.
I recall him not liking Ken Jennings in the first couple of weeks of the 74 game winning streak. They eventually formed a bond, which I first believed was due to the huge ratings increase, but later led to their synergy around making Jeopardy great.
I, like everyone else try to beat the contestants and regularly do, with the exception of Final Jeopardy. Rarely solving this question keeps me from applying as I am about 1 for 15 in getting it right. I regularly beat everyone I play against (except my son, a bastion of knowledge), but fail in pop categories and celebrities. Those are issues I know and care little about. The combination of words, anagrams and Roman numeral addition questions stump me. Ken, Brad and James dominate there.
James Holtzhauer gave us a new way of playing, especially in how to bet. To this day, I love those who bet big. It’s not their money anyway if they don’t stay. You have to play to win and betting low is counterintuitive to winning.
Since Trebek, they have had a string of guest hosts. Some were great because they get what is the formula for success is. Others were fame seekers that had power in the Celebtard world.
The permanent replacements, Mayim Bialik and Mike Richards stood out as the best. They deserve the job. They were smooth, invested in the success of the show and didn’t try to be the reason people watched.
Honorable mention goes to Ken Jennings. He won the GOAT tournament and is forever ensconced in the history of the show. I knew he wouldn’t get the job due to other commitments, but he would have been a good one.
THE SECOND TIER
Bill Whitaker and Sanjay Gupta. Again, they didn’t try to be anything other than the facilitator. They were less polished than the best, but no one believed they were anything but a guest host. They wouldn’t have been good replacements though.
THE MAN WHO WANTED IT MOST, BUT COULDN’T PULL IT OFF
Aaron Rodgers wanted to be the guest host and made it clear. He tried, but is a Hall of Fame quarterback and not a TV personality. He stumbled too much, like Jeff Gordan and Dale Earnhardt Jr. in NASCAR. They were great athletes, but not good commentators. The show would have suffered under him.
AND THE REST, LOSERS, POSERS, CELEBTARDS AND SO FORTH
Dr. Oz has been on TV, but tried to be smarter than the contestants. He was arrogant as usual and not polished, despite being in front of a camera frequently. He cut off contestants and was rude to those who answered incorrectly.
Levar Burton tried too hard. He put on his TV voice and his appearance came off as a job interview rather than a host replacement. He was better than the rest below, but his fake enthusiasm was tough to take at times. He had a woke following that tried to get him hired via social media. The show would have suffered under him because he was hard to listen to in a very short period of time.
Robin Roberts was the wokest. She blatantly played favorites with female and minority contestants. A good host (and person) treats everyone the same, regardless of how they were born like Alex did. There is no justification for bias against anyone so this was inexcusable. She got the gig due to her other TV shows where she can spout her views with impunity. It was hard to watch.
Katie Couric should have been good. She answered “you got it” to every correct answer. I counted over 25 times on one show alone. She was the perky interviewer who failed as a newscaster, but her TV ability should have shown through better than it did. The ratings were poor under her and she is unlikable a lot of the time.
The same can be said for Anderson Cooper, teleprompter reader who is tedious to listen to. His ratings as a newscaster (and guest host) explain why he was so bad. Social media pilloried him. He was boring at best and clearly doesn’t have the intelligence to be a host for show requiring a 3 digit IQ.
Savannah Guthrie at best went through the motions. It was as if she didn’t care. She was disingenuous and dismissive when speaking to the players. She also was a “you got it” over doer. I thought she should have been way better, but didn’t seem to try. I am not a watcher of her regular program, but she was bad at the Olympics also, so I guess she’s consistent. She was the one I almost caused me not to watch the show for a couple of weeks, like Katie.
No one will be the winner because Alex is too hard to follow. He made the show great. It’s like having a famous parent and the kids rarely equal the star.
It’s a great show and has been around because of that. In a way it’s like golf, you can never beat it because you can’t know everything. Just try to beat the people you watch with and the contestants.
On a side note, I worked at IBM when Watson played. I talked to Sam Palmisano, then chairman and he said it was a marketing gimmick. The players never had a chance as the amount of computing horsepower behind the scenes was programmed to win at a certain task. Humans still are better to watch. Watson turned out to be a bust anyway.
I’ve written extensively about this, especially in Internet Road Rage. Go read it to see who these cowards are.
No matter what you do, someone has a beef (vegans will get me here, just another example) with whatever you say.
It used to be don’t talk politics, religion or something else at Thanksgiving or you’ll piss off someone in your family. Now, just like someone and you are one of Hillary’s deplorables (She gave the the best example, why I’m using politics here hoping to draw some ire from a commenter to prove my point. I could care less about her or her opinions other than it works).
Now, you can’t say anything on social media without someone being offended. I think it’s funny if they fall for it though because it just shows how shallow people are. Just go to Quora, hater (twitter) or Fakebook to find a large group of the clueless. That they are trying to censor people who don’t agree with them just shows bias and ignorance.
So, you can either be smart and blow off the idiots looking to be offended or trying to prove their point to the world, or just fall in line with the masses and get into it.
So far, 18 sub-units of HIV1 have been found in the virus’ genetic code that cause the body to intentionally produce the HIV1 virus. “Could it give you HIV or AIDS? Nobody has the answer to that. Only time will tell; in years we will know. But you should know that there are people who tested positive for HIV after they got these vaccines… in Australia they tested positive. So this is something to be very concerned about.
There are cures out there now so why is there so much push for an unapproved jab? Your guess is as good as mine, but like Watergate, follow the money.
This post was supposed to fall in the intellectual category for people to decide if Harvard has the qualities that high IQ people still desire (such as being able to see/argue multiple sides of an issue). They have managed to ruin any hope of defending both sides of an issue given the updates as you read them below. I’ll leave it for those who may be on the fence, and wish them the best in their decision.
One of them is the ability to see and argue from multiple perspectives. To have this trait, you have to shut out ideological thinking or persuasiveness of others before developing a hypothesis. Many have preconceived thoughts on a subject, political stance or values influenced by others rather than examining all aspects of a subject. In other words, they read one side of a subject on the Internet and believe what they want to. Everyone has a bias, but one needs to come to problems with an open mind and use facts and history to evaluate the solution otherwise you run at least a 50% chance of being wrong.
Harvard has released their list of Fake News sites. This is a popular subject given the 2016 Presidential election. If you look at the coverage and predictions of the various news sites, you can come to a conclusion which ones were actually wrong (based on forecasts, coverage and predictions) and if their coverage was biased or indeed “Fake News”. You have to make up your own mind where you stand on this. I am not saying their position is necessarily wrong, rather questioning their intelligence.
The list is decidedly one-sided, showing a bias. This is unfortunate. Again, readers have to decide if this is correct or not. No one or news institution is right or wrong 100% of the time.
In fair disclosure, one trait may indicate nothing, or it may be the bread crumb down the trail of truth if they are the institution they claim to be. Once more, each must reach his or her own conclusion. I show later in the post how I came to my decision about the title based more on empirical evidence.
Given the perceived prestige that comes with a Harvard degree (note: I did not say education), one would hope that the inflated price for such would be well spent money. It would appear that their logic in such a one-sided position on what is “Fake News” doesn’t indicate that they show this intellectual trait. You take a chance where to get an education or where you send your kids. One just hopes that it is the right decision. Since almost every decision is a cost/benefit analysis in your mind, one now must question if it is worth it. Maybe your kid isn’t really an intellectual so the point might be moot.
I realize that you can develop relationships with power people at college that can advance a successful career. It is not the point of this discussion. I am merely observing a perceived status and whether it is justified or not.
The grad students, who consider themselves a progressive version of “Dumbledore’s Army,” have enlisted former Obama staffers to teach the class sessions. The syllabus includes readings on “Black-Palestinian Queer Reciprocal Solidarity.”
They have decidedly taken a position of only viewing issues from one side. One should greatly question the concept of critical thinking ability being taught there. For those of us who can balance multiple views of the same subject, it is clear that these snowflakes will be under-educated and might be damaged goods in the marketplace of talent.
I formed my own opinion having worked for decades with Ivy League educated employees, albeit somewhat weighted towards Harvard and Columbia. It was made exceedingly clear by a PR flak who after having worked with a number of Harvard MBA’s stated that they had obviously wasted their money on their education. We were working for a prestigious company that attracts genius level talent. She showed remarkable intuition that caused me to further observe the Ivy’s. The majority didn’t last as they had a piece of paper saying that they should be smart, but lacked an education in people or the understanding that life is a series of challenges and hurdles.
Some of the most successful executives and workers I’ve encountered didn’t rely on their degree in school, rather what they learned in life and how they applied it to the next problem.
While history reveals that many leaders and intelligent people came from Harvard, the direction they are heading and the principles that they now uphold should add some cost to the side of the cost/benefit decision making process. I hope it’s worth it if you choose it as your place for an education. You will apparently get an institution that has a bias.
“I do not take a single newspaper, nor read one a month, and I feel myself infinitely the happier for it.” – Thomas Jefferson
I don’t subscribe to the newspaper anymore, but I got one this morning. I’m sure that it was a teaser to try to get me to subscribe. Upon reading it, I realized I already knew everything in the paper except the local high school football scores from games after I went to bed.
A DYING MODEL
The subscription rates to newspapers are dying, not even a slow death. Similarly, the evening news is also a dinosaur. They report what we knew as much as a full day before.
I am on twitter and read blogs all day long. I occasionally go to the news sites, but as I discuss below, their bias (I hold both left and right guilty equally here) usually makes me fact check what I’m trying to find out which defeats the purpose of fact-finding, especially if it involves politics. That subject is pretty much unavoidable these days.
Nevertheless, I enjoy many other subjects which you could read about it on other blog entries if you have nothing better to do, and I find good information about them that is interesting and INSTANT.
I’m a boomer, although a technically savvy one having been in the IT industry all my life. The Gen X,Y, millennials, and whomever follows them demand even more instantaneous everything virtually dooming the news model of our prior generation. Thank you Internet.
THE END OF THE BASTIONS OF NEWS
We have establish that we are now used to getting information instantaneously. The other reason that the model is dying is that they are biased. This is ok if you are a neo-con or a loony lefty, but for everyone else (the other 80% given 10% on the edges of left and right) we don’t trust them anymore.
Once, these two sources were the basis of our world and local information. Besides being static rather than dynamic, they also have stopped being factual sources of information, rather they are partisan, with Fox on one side and CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, NBC, MSNBC, NYT, WAPO, LA TImes, Reuters, AP, HuffPo, Local News, Local Papers and most other news sources on the other side of issues. All are positioned in a place that position the facts from a point of view. Some of them blatantly lie. Reporting was supposed to be the facts of the story that let the reader make up their mind on their position.
We’ve actually learned that the news has been biased for at least as long as there has been television, we just didn’t have the instant fact checking that the internet and the other sources have provided.
There is a joke from Bernie Goldberg that said if they had been reporting on Moses at Mt. Sinai, the headline would read “Moses get the 10 Commandments from God, and here are the two that we think are important to you”.
Walter Cronkite said that the Viet Nam war was lost during the time that we were winning. LBJ said that if he’d lost Cronkite, he’d lost America. We’ve since learned that the then “most trusted man in America” was also one of the most biased.
LIFE MOVES ON
Other things have died and we have lived and moved on. Black and white TV, network only channels vs. cable TV and landline phones vs. mobile (cell for those in the US) phones. Such is the fate of newspapers and TV network news. Here is just one fact concerning the NYT declining rates. I’m sure you could find somewhere that their subscriptions are increasing, but this would seem deceitful given the nature of digital delivery.
So am I disturbed by this trend? Actually I didn’t even notice it until I saw the paper in my yard this morning. I haven’t subscribed for news in many years (note: I get the Sunday paper for the coupons as long as they pay for the 1 day delivery – my sister calls me a tightwad but it leads to becoming this).
I get my news from the above stated sources and know more about what is going on than the anchors have time to present in their biases manner.
