Dr. Oz takes the lead
After trailing John Fetterman in the polls for weeks in the Pennsylvania Senate race, Dr. Mehmet Oz has pulled ahead by four points in one new poll, 49.1%-44.6%, with independents largely breaking for Oz. RealClearPolitics is also now predicting that Oz will win. I’m not sure if this is due to polls becoming more accurate or voters just coming to their senses.
A lot of people are treating the Oz-Fetterman race as something of an outlier or sideshow, a race between a TV celebrity and…whatever Fetterman is. But the more I think about it, the more I believe this race actually provides a perfect microcosm of the two major political parties in 2022.
On the Republican side is someone who went to medical school, a difficult field unrelated to politics. He studied, worked hard and became very successful. But he became concerned that leftist elites were destroying the country he loved, so he decided to give up his lucrative private sector career for a while to go to Washington and help to fix their mess, exactly as the Founders intended Congressional public service to be.
On the Democrat side, we have someone who admits he mostly “sleepwalked” through his youth. His master’s degree is in “public policy.” He’s never started a business or earned any wealth, but is contemptuous of those who have. He was supported by his parents for much of his life. He’s covered in tattoos and doesn’t know how to dress himself like a mature adult. His political career involved continually failing upward, from part-time mayor of a distressed town that’s more distressed now than when he found it, to lieutenant governor who championed leftist policies like legalizing pot and releasing criminals from prison, to Senate candidate. Oh, and there’s a good chance he might actually be brain damaged.
If those two stories don’t perfectly represent today’s parties, I don’t know what does.
NY Judge blocks Democrat-controlled legislature
In New York, Saratoga County Supreme Court Justice Dianne Freestone blocked the Democratic legislature’s attempt to make absentee voting because you’re afraid of COVID permanent. She wrote that their loosening of voting laws in violation of Constitutional requirements was an attempt to create an “Orwellian perpetual state of health emergency,” “cloaked in the veneer of ‘voter enfranchisement.'”
There are more details at the link, and of course, the Dems are appealing it. To me, the issue is pretty simple: if the fear of COVID isn’t paralyzing enough to keep you from going to a club, a riot or the studio audience of “The View,” then get your rear end to the polls and vote. And bring your ID with you. I know you have one.
Missouri v. Biden
In case you missed it…and chances are you did, since most media outlets are trying desperately to ignore it…Miranda Divine had a report in Sunday’s New York Post about the “little-noticed” federal lawsuit, Missouri v. Biden, which could be something very big.
She says it’s uncovering “astonishing evidence” of a censorship conspiracy between the federal government and Big Tech “that would make Communist China proud.” So far, 67 individuals and agencies, including the FBI, have been accused in the lawsuit of pressuring Facebook, Twitter and Google to censor users for spreading “misinformation and disinformation” about such subjects as Hunter Biden’s laptop, COVID-19, the efficacy of masks and vaccines, and election integrity. What that meant in many cases was that they were sharing facts and Constitutionally-protected opinions that conflicted with the government’s narratives but that later were proven correct.
Read the whole article so you’ll be prepared on the hoped-for day when all this comes out in court and even media outlets that don’t have to be pressured to parrot Democrat narratives are forced to cover it.
Related: David Strom at HotAir.com looks at the latest example of a “fact-check” designed to deceive the public.
In this case, it was the “fact-checkers” jumping on Tucker Carlson for saying that the CDC vote to add COVID vaccines to childhood vaccination schedules meant it would be a requirement. Technically, that’s not 100% accurate. The CDC schedule is a “recommendation,” and states can set their own policies. But as Strom notes, that ignores the actual fact that at least 12 states simply cut-and-paste CDC recommendations into their requirements.
It also helps distract from the much bigger story of why the CDC is recommending regular doses of a vaccine that many experts say poses more risk to children than the disease itself. As Strom points out, while the CDC is “recommending” the vaccine to children as young as five, Denmark doesn’t even offer boosters to anyone under 50 unless there’s some specific reason.
Justice prevails in California
Cathy Miller, owner of a bakery in Bakersfield, California, finally prevailed in a nuisance lawsuit that attempted to force her to violate her religious beliefs. Back in 2017, she was asked to create a lesbian wedding cake. She explained that it was against her Christian religious beliefs, but she offered them a premade cake and referred them to a competitor who would have taken the job.
Of course, that wasn’t good enough. The defenders of tolerance in California must force any dissenters to comply, so the state sued Miller under the Unruh Civil Rights Act of 1959, which protects consumers from discrimination by businesses on the basis of race, ethnicity or religion. After five years of expensive and torturous legal battles, including the state questioning the sincerity of her religious faith, Miller finally prevailed, with a superior court on Friday dismissing the lawsuit. Her attorney from the Thomas More Society said it was a bit of an “irony” considering “a law intended to protect individuals from religious discrimination was used to discriminate against Cathy for her religious beliefs.”
Congratulations to her, and I hope this will be the end of her legal persecution, but if the experiences of other Christian service providers are any indication, I fear it won’t be. When the SCOTUS invented a right to same-sex marriage, some of the Justices foresaw how this could be used to infringe on the clearly-enumerated right of freedom of religion, but in failing to clarify that the First Amendment must always take precedence, they opened the door to countless nuisance lawsuits. Having finally righted the injustice of Roe v. Wade, it’s high time they revisited that decision and slammed the door on the legal parasites.
Memo to Hillary Clinton and California Gov. Gavin Newsom
Before you run a pro-abortion ad showing a woman crying on the steps of the Supreme Court, you might want to make sure she’s not a pro-life activist crying tears of joy because Roe v. Wade was finally overturned.
