Biden's vision for America
Do you like to go on vacation towing your trailer? Then you’re really going to love being forced to drive an electric car. Getting there will be half the ordeal as you see America close up, stopping every 100 miles to recharge your battery or waiting alongside some of the nation’s most scenic roadsides for the (gas-powered) tow truck to show up.
Or maybe you could buy a big, powerful electric pickup truck to tow your trailer. Chances are, though, your truck will be what ends up getting towed.
Biden issues Executive Order
As expected on Friday, President Biden issued his executive order to try to make it easier for women – sorry, “birthing people” – to get abortions. Here’s an explanation of what’s in it:
It appears that Democrats’ greatest fear is that the people of the individual states will actually have some say over abortion laws and not have it dictated to them by Washington. Biden’s statement included what we’ve come to expect from him, such as claims that Republicans have an “extreme agenda” on abortion. Or so says a man who claims to be a Catholic and who once opposed abortion himself, but who now thinks his party’s agenda is not extreme, even though 49 out of 50 of its Senators voted to allow the killing of babies in the womb right up to the moment of birth, a practice so barbaric, it’s mostly allowed only in nations such as North Korea.
The statement also included the expected fuzzy euphemisms for abortion, some blatant politicizing of the issue (elect more Democrats so they can ignore the Constitution and impose abortion by federal law), some likely fake news when Biden repeated a viral claim about a 10-year-old rape victim being denied an abortion that is looking more and more like propaganda from a pro-abortion activist…
And of course, numerous gaffes, including a moment when Biden read his stage directions off the Teleprompter out loud…
…followed by the White House and its sycophants insisting that we didn’t actually see and hear what we just saw and heard.
Musk withdraws offer to buy Twitter
Elon Musk has withdrawn his $44 billion offer to buy Twitter, claiming the social media site violated the agreement by making false and misleading representations and refusing to provide information on how many fake or spam accounts are included in its total users. The Twitter board is threatening to sue to force Musk to close the deal. Some analysts predict it will go through eventually, only Musk might pay less than he initially offered.
If Musk walks away from Twitter, the big losers would be anyone who thinks that social media should be politically impartial and protect freedom of speech, since Twitter without Musk would likely continue under the supervision of the same Silicon Valley censors and socialists that Musk would have rightly fired. It would be a shame if that doesn’t happen, but on the other hand, who can blame him for not wanting to have to deal with that pack of whining, entitled snowflakes?
I’ve been warning parents for years about the far-left indoctrination rag-disguised-as teen lifestyle magazine known as Teen Vogue. But if you haven’t yet gotten the message to keep this propaganda far, far away from your kids, here’s yet another reason why it should only be used as a fireplace starter.
This deserves mockery
I apologize in advance for making you read this Spanish Inquisition-level torturing of the English language in the name of “inclusivity.” I fear it will birth quite a headache for you.
Here’s some funny and well-deserved mockery of it to help wash this convoluted wokeness out of your head.
Speaking of word salad, here’s a veritable Whole Foods salad bar full of it, courtesy of Vice President Kamala Harris, “explaining” why Democrats didn’t codify abortion rights when they had the power to do so.
Latest example from the Unhinged Left
Latest example of the violent unhinged left proving they are too mentally immature and emotionally unstable to be trusted with any power: the harassment of Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh as he was trying to eat dinner at a DC restaurant.
This is something I can relate to, since something similar happened to my own daughter and her family. From the article, you can see that this wasn’t just a handful of unhinged protesters on the scene. There are organizers and sympathizers making it clear that they think this is a perfectly legitimate reaction to them not getting their way in a court ruling. And it’s easy to say, “Well, it’s just a small radical fringe group.” But President Biden, the head of the entire Democratic Party, has refused to condemn these illegal stalking tactics, defending them as long as it’s a “peaceful protest.”
I’m curious: does that mean peaceful protest where they just peacefully harass a Supreme Court Justice and an entire restaurant full of diners, or a CNN-style “mostly peaceful protest,” where they’re only burning down a few select buildings?
Another Reason to vote Republican in New York
If you haven’t yet heard the infuriating story of New York City bodega clerk Jose Alba, who killed a violent attacker in self-defense and (unlike the dangerous criminal who attacked him) is being treated like a dangerous criminal by NYC DA Alvin Bragg, this is a good recap of the twists and turns so far.
Bipartisan public outrage got Alba’s sky-high bail reduced so he’s out of jail, but still wearing an ankle monitor and possibly facing charges. And here’s a new political twist: New York won’t let voters recall criminal-coddling woke prosecutors, but they can be fired by the Governor. Democrat Gov. Kathy Hochul won’t do it, but her Republican challenger Lee Zeldin says that firing Bragg will be on his Day 1 To-Do list. So, reason #10,903 for New Yorkers to go back to voting Republican.
