1. DAILY BIBLE VERSE
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Tonight's verse was recommended by Judy L.
2. Inconvenient truths
Yanked out of the memory hole by Kylee Zempel of The Federalist, here are eight times that leftwing groups attacked, infiltrated, vandalized and/or occupied government buildings and shut down official functions, but somehow were not assaulting democracy or attempting insurrection.
3. January 7: Just happy to be here:
If you thought your kids were happy when Christmas arrived, that’s nothing compared to how happy I, and I’m sure millions of Americans, are that January 7th is here. It means that we’re finally past the Democrats’ (in Glenn Greenwald’s words) pathetic, laughable “orgy of psychodrama” over last year’s three-hour Capitol riot. Or as Tucker Carlson noted, many mainstream news outlets kept calling it “a day of darkness,” as if that phrase was sent straight from the DNC fax machine to their teleprompters.
Still, I'm sure the Demos and their media outlets will keep flogging this dead horse every day until Election Day. Some lapdog media outlets are even trying to claim that from now on, “every day is January 6th.” I think they’ll decide to update their calendars pretty quickly once their viewership drops below that of a test pattern.
And why are they doing this? Do they seriously believe that a lot of working class Trump voters are planning a violent overthrow of the government? Of course not. They’re just terrified that a lot of working class voters will march to the polls in November and throw them out on their ears. Think about it: they have literally nothing else to run on. From COVID to the border to inflation to Russia/China/Afghanistan/Iran, Biden is the Bizarro King Midas: everything he’s touched has turned to manure. Although that might be a bad analogy, since manure can actually be useful.
Yesterday’s Insurrection Theater was the kickoff of the latest variant on the argument the Dems have used for years to keep minorities voting for them, even as blue cities get worse and worse: they have to convince people that no matter how incompetent, dishonest and corrupt the Democrats are, and no matter how bad life becomes under their rule, you must keep reelecting them because those OTHER people are mean, cruel, racist, Nazi MONSTERS!
They can’t ever let up on this ludicrous canard because if their voters ever looked behind the curtain and saw not a pack of drooling demons but just millions of hard-working, law-abiding, patriotic Americans like themselves, the game would be up. Judging from recent polls of Hispanic voters, that day might be dawning, which has the Dems in a panic, hence yesterday’s desperate histrionics.
4. Schiff gives away the big game:
Rep. Adam Schiff, whose only true accomplishment is attaining the stunning title of biggest liar in Congress, gave away the real game behind the orgy of January 6th hyperbole by using it as an argument for how we must “protect democracy” by doing away with the Senate filibuster so that Democrats can ram through their radical big-spending, vote-rigging agenda on a 51-50 vote. Nothing says “protecting democracy” like using the slimmest of majorities to rig the rules and take away the power and voice of at least half the nation.
I often remind people that in Washington, a “gaffe” is when a politician slips up and accidentally tells the truth, or at least what he or she really thinks. We’ve found yet another example in a legal filing involving Sen. Elizabeth Warren and “Transportation Secretary” Pete Buttigieg (I put that title in quotes because I can’t tell whether he’s actually even showing up to that job.)
Charles Glasser at Instapundit reports that last February, on what would have been Trayvon Martin’s 25th birthday, Warren and Buttigieg sent out tweets blaming his death on racism and white supremacy. The man who shot Martin, George Zimmerman (who is Hispanic), was acquitted of murder and manslaughter on grounds of self-defense, and he sued them both for defamation. A court dismissed the case due to procedural errors in his complaint, but he could still refile it.
Glasser notes that the really interesting part of this case was buried in the response by Warren and Buttigieg’s lawyers, who argued that “an allegation of racism or white supremacy is a matter of opinion and therefore not even actionable.”
Yes, you read that correctly: the mere accusation of racism or white supremacy can cost you your job and reputation, get you doxed, or even targeted for death (a man was convicted of attempted murder for shooting at Zimmerman after the trial), but to the top political leaders making such accusations, they’re just “opinions,” which carry no weight at all.
So please remember this the next time you hear a liberal call someone a racist or a white supremacist. They've admitted in court that not even they believe it, stand by it or take it seriously.
6. Almost there:
Wait, are we finally on the verge of being allowed to say what many of us have known all along but were banned and censored for suggesting: that cheap cloth masks do very little to stop a virus?
Someone call me when we’re actually allowed to point out how unhygienic it is to use them the way that most people (especially kids) do, by touching them with unwashed fingers and setting them down on various surfaces all day long, and then putting them directly over our noses and mouths. For a lot of people, this particular "health precaution" is about as hygienic as licking the floor.
7. Let's take a look at what VP Harris said yesterday:
I’m not going to recap all the ridiculous melodramatics we heard yesterday, but a few comments were so over-the-top, they deserve notice and refutation…
Vice President Kamala Harris disgracefully echoed the idiotic claim that 1/6 was comparable to 12/7 (Pearl Harbor Day) and 9/11. Rep. Jim Jordan aptly described that as “disgusting.”
As Glenn Greenwald pointed out, 2,403 people died at Pearl Harbor, 2,977 died on 9/11, and one person (unarmed protester Ashli Babbitt, who was shot by a Capitol police officer) died on 1/7. He also made the great point that the total number of people killed by Trump supporters that day was exactly the same as the number who brandished guns or knives inside the Capitol; the number who have been charged with insurrection, treason, sedition or conspiracy to overthrow the government; the number charged by the Mueller probe for conspiring with Russia to affect the 2016 election; and the number of wounds suffered by AOC on 1/7. That number is “zero.”
A much more appropriate comparison for Harris, but still far worse than January 6th, would be the November 7, 1983, bombing of the Capitol that caused $1 million in damage. It was part of a series of bombings that included an FBI office. But that was by a radical left group, so they couldn’t mention it. Here’s an article about that that coincidentally first appeared on January 6, 2020:
Also, there was the guy who tried to alter the balance of power in Congress and subvert democracy by murdering a lot of Republicans with a rifle at a charity baseball game practice. He nearly managed to kill Rep. Steve Scalise. But he was a leftist Bernie Bro, so Harris couldn’t mention him, either.
Then there were the many violent riots of summer 2020 that included attempts to burn down federal courthouses and police buildings with people inside them. Oh, wait, those were leftists, too. Kamala and her staff even chipped in to help bail some of them out of jail so they could keep on doing it.
The best you could say for Harris’ comments is that they were slightly classier than MSNBC guest Douglas Brinkley, who not only echoed the offensive 9/11 and Pearl Harbor comparisons but also actually brought up the Holocaust. That was truly revolting.
As for the idea that challenging the results of an election is tantamount to treason, here’s a walk down memory lane to remind us of various Democrats who did just that. And not just the usual fringe loudmouths in the House. Among the ones who declared Trump to be an “illegitimate” President in 2017 were such top names as (drumroll)…Joe Biden and Kamala Harris!
