“Orange Man Not-So-Bad” News: President Trump is such an unfeeling, racist, xenophobic warmonger that his Administration has offered aid and sanctions relief to help Iran cope with the coronavirus. Also, despite (false) claims by the left that he’s never done anything to help anyone else and that he thinks the coronavirus is a hoax, he just donated his latest quarterly paycheck of $100,000 to help fight it. Can’t wait to see how the media spin all this to make him look evil.
The Dow leaped over 500 points this morning on the news that it’s even less likely that Bernie Sanders will ever be President of the United States.
UPDATE! Just hours after Mike Bloomberg’s campaign claimed he would press on past his Super Tuesday wipeout, Bloomberg suspended his campaign and endorsed Joe Biden. Although you’d think he’d be a Bernie man by the way he just redistributed so much of a billionaire’s wealth.
The announcement was greeted with great sadness by thousands of TV stations and websites that were making a killing off his wasted $500 million ad budget, but with great relief by everyone outside of American Samoa, who will finally be able to watch cat videos on YouTube without having to see Mike Bloomberg first. It just proves once again that all the advertising in the world can’t sell a faulty product once the public gets a good look at it.
Joe Biden’s legendary “gaffes” seem to be getting more frequent. Not only did he head into Super Tuesday by forgetting the most famous line of the Declaration of Independence and telling supporters to press on to “Super Thursday” (Democrats: please note that this year’s election has been moved to the secondThursday in November, per Joe Biden), during his victory speech, he mixed up his wife and his sister.
It was especially unfortunate that this happened right after he promised to launch a war on Alzheimer’s disease. Maybe this particular “gaffe” was just a function of lights in his eyes, campaign stress or being distracted by the crowd, but it happens a lot, even in dim light and one-on-one interviews. Some pundits are suggesting that if Biden were elected, most of his duties might be delegated to others, and as we’ve seen from him promising to put “Beto” O’Rourke in charge of gun control, that’s a scary thought, indeed.
As sad as this is, some commentators couldn’t help joking about Biden confusing his wife with his sister. Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit remarked, “This puts Hunter’s behavior in a whole new light.” And comic Steven Crowder tweeted: “BREAKING! Ilhan Omar endorses Joe Biden for President.”
(NOTE to all the liberal “fact-checking” sites: that last tweet was a JOKE. Ilhan Omar didn’t really endorse Biden. It’s premised on the claims that she married her brother to get him a green card. Confusing a sibling with a spouse. See? Sigh… Jokes were so much funnier when you didn’t have to explain them to humorless leftists.)
You probably already know this, but if you want accurate, useful information on the coronavirus, you might want to look somewhere other than CNN. A study found that the majority of their coverage of the story so far could be boiled down to two words: “Trump Bad!”
By the way, even the Washington Post is now admitting that those “Trump cut funds for fighting disease” stories were lies.
Here’s the latest round-up of real news about the coronavirus outbreak:
The relentless promotion of transgenderism and “gender fluidity” to innocent children may be starting to face a backlash. There have been several recent articles about young people who underwent painful, disfiguring “gender confirmation” surgery, only to later realize that it was a horrible mistake and they actually just had emotional issues that should’ve been treated with counseling – an obvious truth that you can now be banished from society for voicing. But now, one of those victims is seeking legal redress.
British teen Keira Bell is suing the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, parent of the National Health Service’s Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS.) GIDS has become infamous for over over-diagnosing “gender dysphoria,” with cases leaping from a few dozen to over 2,000 in ten years. At least 35 psychologists have resigned from it in the past three years in protest that young people are being “over-diagnosed and over-medicalized,” such as being given dangerous hormone treatments, but they’re afraid to resist for fear of being branded “transphobic.”
(May I just add: “Government health care, ladies and gentlemen!”)
Ms. Bell claims that she was rushed into gender reassignment treatments after just three short sessions that did nothing to uncover the fact that her “gender identity crisis” was really a coping mechanism for deeper issues. She suffered serious health effects that left her feeling drained, depressed and suicidal. She said her body went into a menopause-like state and “shut down,” and “There’s no going back from it.”
I wish her the best with her lawsuit, and I hope it turns into a class action suit that forces an end to this madness perpetrated on our children. Today’s true epidemic of “dysphoria” is not children who look in a mirror and see the opposite sex, it’s politicized health officials who look at a child and see a guinea pig.
