DAILY BIBLE VERSE
1. TRUMP REQUEST IS DENIED:
Not surprisingly, a federal judge denied an executive privilege request by former President Trump to block the House’s January 6th Committee from having access to White House records. They claim to want to see if Trump helped plan the January 6th “insurrection,” and they’ll be able to get the records Friday, but Trump’s lawyers plan to appeal. Details are here:
Trump accuses the Committee, which is so stacked against him that Nancy Pelosi took the unprecedented move of refusing to accept the Republicans chosen by the House Minority Leader to be on it, of wanting to see White House records and notes of private, classified conversations with advisers to go on a fishing expedition for anything they can leak to smear him.
He called on the Biden White House to defend executive privilege, but they refused. Some legal experts say that's a very short-sighted decision. We’ve already learned that “Contradict Trump” is their prime directive, and any resultant damages don’t matter, whether they’re from opening the border, shutting down oil production or undermining the Presidential right to executive privilege that I imagine Biden will be heavily relying upon himself in the near future.
Incidentally, to show you the politics-uber-alles attitude of this Administration, White House counsel Dana Remus argued that the documents requested by the committee could "shed light on events within the White House on and about January 6 and bear on the Select Committee's need to understand the facts underlying the most serious attack on the operations of the Federal government since the Civil War."
Really? FYI to the White House counsel: Here’s some info on the actual bombing of the Senate in 1983 by leftwing radicals known as the “Armed Resistance Unit,” who also plotted to kill Henry Kissinger:
And here’s the media-suppressed story of the Bernie Bro who nearly murdered Rep. Steve Scalise in a shooting spree at a Congressional softball practice, where he’d hoped to kill enough Republicans to alter the balance of power in the House. He had a record of violent anti-Republican and anti-Trump media posts, including on a Facebook page called “Trump Is Not My President.”
Both of those things sound like more serious attacks on “the operation of the federal government” than January 6th. And like the Civil War itself, they were launched by Democrats.
2. EDWARD DURR IS LEGEND
The more I hear from Ed Durr, the underfunded New Jersey trucker who defeated Democrat State Senate President Steve Sweeney (who still refuses to concede, despite a reversal looking mathematically impossible), the more I like him.
Gov. Phil Murphy, who barely got reelected (and his underfunded Republican opponent has yet to concede, either), just pulled a classic Democrat move by pulling up old social media posts of a Republican, crying that they’re “controversial,” and smearing Durr as “dangerous.” Well, he’s dangerous to mess with, and I’m happy to see Republicans starting to take that attitude. Instead of groveling and apologizing to the tender feelings mob, Durr fired back with a Howitzer.
You’ll want to read all of this, but here are just a few excerpts to whet your appetite. Durr responded that Phil Murphy “is the dangerous guy who killed 10,000 nursing home residents and destroyed the lives of countless hardworking New Jerseyans. The only reason Murphy wants a concession is so he can get back to work to see how many more lives he can ruin with his lousy policies.”
Cherry on top: “As if I would ever appear on a show with Anderson Cooper or Chris Cuomo…There is absolutely no way I will accept an invitation from CNN, MSNBC…They can go find another way to pull their ratings out of the toilet.”
Hey, Ed, if you want to appear on a TV show, you’re welcome on mine anytime!
3. THIS BIDEN NOMINEE HATES AMERICA, PRAISED THE SOVIET UNION
Ever since day one of President Biden taking office, a debate has been raging over whether his Administration is malicious or just almost supernaturally incompetent. Nobody wants to believe that a President (or more likely, his staffers who are really pulling the strings) would deliberately inflict so much damage on America. But could anyone possibly be dumb enough to think that throwing open the borders or shutting down the domestic fuel industry or pulling troops out of Afghanistan BEFORE evacuating our people, etc. etc. etc., could be anything other than disastrous?
Then, just as you’ve almost convinced yourself that they couldn't really hate America, they’re just really terrible at their jobs, they give you more evidence that it’s the former. Meet Cornell University law professor Saule Omarova, Biden’s nominee to head the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the most powerful and important regulator of banks, financial institutions and the US dollar.
She brings to the job such a long history of hostility to the banking industry and the established system that keeps our economy stable that it’s sort of like appointing Lex Luthor to oversee Superman. Her longtime dream is to kill the private banking industry and create a “National Investment Authority,” an independent government agency that would “centralize and nationalize strategic spending,” replacing the free market economy with a controlled economy, like that of China.
She’s praised the old Soviet Union for not having a “gender pay gap,” and she also recently told a conference that her NIA would direct capital toward “green” energy companies and away from the oil, gas and coal industries, because “we want them to go bankrupt if we want to tackle climate change.”
This is the type of idiotic blather that George Orwell called so absurd that only an intellectual could believe it. FYI: some European nations tried replacing reliable energy sources with insufficient and unstable alternative sources, and they ended up freezing in the winter and dying of heat stroke in the summer. And it could happen again, because leftists never learn from their mistakes, since their disasters are always someone else’s fault.
These are the type of grandiose, revolutionary pipe dreams that hothouse academics have been pushing for years, except the only places they actually work are in theory and in faculty lounges. Previous Administrations were smart enough to keep them there, but Biden actually wants to put one of these bubble-dwelling revolutionaries in charge of our money and our energy supply. That’s why it’s hard to believe anyone could have America’s best interests at heart and do that out of simple stupidity.
Omarova’s ideas are so out there, and would clearly be catastrophic to America’s economy and the free market, that even some Democrats on the Senate Banking Committee, including Sens. Jon Tester, Kyrsten Sinema and Mark Warner, are reportedly reluctant to confirm her. Surely, Biden can find someone better to deal with America’s money and energy interests. If not, try throwing a dart at the Dallas phone book.
4. BETTER CALL THE FBI:
Uh-oh! Better call the FBI! We’ve had a domestic terrorism incident!
5. WHAT ABOUT ERNEST RAMIREZ?:
President Biden wants to give up to $450,000 in compensation to illegal immigrants who were separated from their children when they brought them across the border ILLEGALLY (or at least he does now that his staff has told him he does.) He even snapped at a reporter who questioned him that “whether it was legal or illegal, you lost your child! You lost your child! It’s gone! You deserve some kind of compensation!”
So PJ Media’s Stacey Lennox asks, what about Ernest Ramirez?
He’s also Hispanic, an American citizen, and he just lost his 16-year-old son, Ernesto. He did what Biden is telling people to do and made his son get vaccinated for COVID. The government told him the vaccine was safe and didn’t tell him that his son’s chances of dying of COVID were near zero. Five days later, his son died of an enlarged heart, one of the symptoms of myocarditis. Will he get compensation? Highly unlikely, and certainly not $450,000.
Attorney Aaron Siri, who represents vaccine-injured clients, says nothing is available. The government shielded the manufacturers from lawsuits, the HHS exempted these vaccines from a federal program that compensates victims of vaccine injuries, and Sen. Ron Johnson says his phone is ringing off the hook from people claiming to have suffered adverse reactions, but the CDC, NIH and FDA are ignoring them. Siri says the only place to turn is the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program, but its standards of proof are so high and its payouts so low that it’s hardly worth it.
Ramirez testified to Johnson’s Senate panel that now, “I love my country. I don’t trust my government.” That’s understandable when the government wants to give $450,000 to illegal immigrants but won’t even give a hearing to grieving American parents.
6. MORE MASKLESS DEMOCRATS
Stop me if you’ve heard anything like this before… While Democrat politicians are forcing your kids to wear masks in school until they pass out, check out this photo of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi at a lavish Getty family wedding at San Francisco City Hall where she officiated. Note the packed crowd of guests around her, all of them literally rubbing shoulders and not a face mask in sight. I hear that fellow mask enforcers Gov. Gavin Newsom and San Francisco Mayor London Breed were also there.
FYI: The City Hall is still officially closed to public meetings due to COVID, but they made an exception for this. They must’ve figured there were so many Democrats there that the virus wouldn’t spread as a courtesy, the way it also doesn’t spread at BLM protests or fancy restaurants where Democrat politicians dine.
7. THOSE RACIST DEMOCRATS
I would call today’s Democratic Party the new home of racism in America, but between slavery, the KKK, Jim Crow laws and Bull Connor, it’s more like the traditional home of racism. Which they continue to prove not only by their embrace of “Critical Race Theory” (while denying it exists) and their 24/7 efforts to divide and judge people by skin color alone, but through the way they launch vicious racist attacks on any minority person who dares to demand the right to think for him- or herself and not just parrot the DNC party line.
Current disgusting example: their assaults on Virginia Lt. Gov-Elect Winsome Sears. Instead of celebrating a black, female immigrant/veteran who made history by winning that office, they’re savaging her in the most disgustingly racist terms, accusing her of being a ventriloquist dummy for white supremacists. This because she’s a patriot, a Republican, someone who truly loves America and a believer in the Rev. King’s vision of a colorblind society where people are judged by the content of their characters. (By the way, how much longer will it be before these so-called “anti-racists” are tearing down statues of MLK?)
This is a must-read smackdown of that self-serving, race-baiting garbage that many people are finally starting to see through and stand up to.
It’s by Jennifer Oliver O’Connell, a black female writer who got “woke” to the left’s exploitation of minorities long ago. It’s called “Take This Dog Whistle and Shove It.” As she makes clear, the Democrats pose as saviors and claim that only they can help black Americans with their problems, but “three-quarters of the problems Democrats claim they want to save us from have been fostered and exacerbated by their awful policies.”
I can see why they suddenly want us to stop saying the word “woke.” Too many people really are getting “woke” to their decades-long scam.

8. BAD, SEXIST CLIMATE:
As if climate change weren’t already the worst thing in the known universe and the type of existential threat that only spending $100 trillion of other people’s money could fix, now it’s sexist, too! Or as Nancy Pelosi explained it, “It’s a threat multiplier that amplifies and accelerates existing inequities!” Bad, sexist climate!
I’m particularly glad the children were here today to hear that authentic liberal gibberish.
