DAILY BIBLE VERSE

And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.

Mark 11:25 KJV

“Cowards”

New York City Mayor Eric Adams attacked the Governors of Arizona and Texas as “cowards,” accusing them of busing illegal immigrants north, where they’re overwhelming NYC social services.

https://www.westernjournal.com/nyc-mayor-eric-adams-rips-gop-governors-abbott-ducey-cowards-shipping-illegal-migrants-north/

Just a few things wrong with that:

(A.) The reason so many illegal immigrants are pouring into America is because the guy in the White House who shares Adams’ party threw open the border and waved them all in.

(B.) Texas and Arizona are busing them to DC. If they’re showing up in New York, that might be because the guy in the White House (who, again, is Adams' fellow Democrat) has been flying them into New York under cover of darkness for months.

(C.) Unless Mayor Adams has said anything over the past 18 months in sympathy and support for the border states and towns that were being overrun with illegal immigrants under Biden’s policies, then nobody wants to hear him whine about how unfair it is that they’re now showing up in New York.


Redefining a “recession”

I’ve often explained that the left can't win arguments by pointing to the success of their policies (there has never been any, anywhere at any time), so they have to constantly change terms and redefine words. This is why they’re not pro-abortion, they’re pro-“reproductive justice.” George Carlin would have had a field day with the way they keep adding new syllables to make what they’re talking about less clear.

Well, with recession obviously looming, if it isn’t here already, prepare for the White House to try to convince us that the word “recession” has now been redefined, and two quarters of shrinking GDP isn’t really a “recession” but an expansion, if they can convince Americans of that. Good luck!

Zeldin update

As previously reported, Rep. Lee Zeldin, the GOP nominee for New York Governor, was correct when he predicted that the man who came up on stage and tried to stab him to death would be released without bail within hours under New York law. But PJ Media’s Matt Margolis makes an excellent point:

https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/matt-margolis/2022/07/22/would-be-assassin-of-congressman-zeldin-already-a-free-man-in-soft-on-crime-new-york-n1615108

Zeldin isn’t just a typical New York citizen with no right not to be assaulted. He’s also a sitting member of Congress, which means that under US Code 351, an assault on him is a federal crime. After the New York “authorities” did nothing, the Department of Justice should have immediately stepped in and arrested his attacker on federal charges. So where are Attorney General Merrick Garland and the Biden “Justice” Department?

Just as with the attempted assassination of Justice Kavanaugh, the illegal protests at SCOTUS’ Justices’ homes and other threats, assaults and intimidation tactics, this Administration turns a blind eye to violence aimed at Republicans or conservatives. If for no other reason, all Americans of good faith need to turn out in November to throw these people out and end this partisan, two-tiered “justice” system. A nation based on the rule of law cannot survive if the people don’t believe that the system is acting fairly and justly.

I keep imagining what it would be like if Democrats had been in power when Republican Abe Lincoln was assassinated. John Wilkes Booth would have been released on his own recognizance.

Oh, and we’d still have slavery.


Post-Roe: Hysteria and misinformation

In the first flush of hysteria and misinformation about the meaning of the SCOTUS’ overturning of Roe v. Wade, a number of big corporations rushed to announce that they would pay for their employees to travel to other states to get abortions. Some offered up to $4,000 in expenses, which they don’t offer to employees who get pregnant and want to keep their babies, and who could really use the money. Many people suggested (and I was one of them) that despite the obvious leftist “virtue” signaling, this really had less to do with them supporting abortion rights than the fact that childless workers put in more hours and cost them less in benefits. Your babies impact their bottom line.

But as is always the case with the media, the loudest, most leftist voices got all the attention and were amplified far beyond their actual numbers. A Conference Board survey of 300 public, private, and nonprofit corporations found that 61% have taken a public stance on racial equality, 44% have taken a position on LGBT issues, and 39% have taken a public stand on “gender equality.” But only 8% have taken a public position on abortion.

There are more details and analysis on why this is so at the link, but I think this paragraph might be the key:

“Further polling suggests that Americans are disillusioned with companies wading in political waters, as 87.1 percent said it is at least somewhat likely they would stop using the product or service of the company that advocates for something they disagree with, a May Convention of States Action/Trafalgar survey found.”

Considering a recent Harvard/Harris poll found that only 10% of Americans support the current radical position of the Democrats that abortion should be legal up through the ninth month of pregnancy, maybe most CEOs just don’t want to follow the Disney model of spitting in their customers’ faces.


Feel-Good Saturday Story

Congratulations to Hubert and June Malicote of Hamilton, Ohio! This year, they not only celebrated their 79th wedding anniversary, but they also just celebrated their birthdays. They were born just 10 days apart, 100 years ago, in July, 1922. Click the link to see their charming and inspiring story and some terrific photos.

Does Elena Kagan understand her job?

This is scary. I’m not even a lawyer, but I think I might understand Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan’s job better than she does.

https://redstate.com/mike_miller/2022/07/22/elena-kagan-claims-legitimacy-of-supreme-court-is-at-risk-when-it-strays-from-public-opinion-n599795

For future reference: No, it’s not the job of the SCOTUS to tailor its rulings to conform to public opinion. It’s their job to ensure that laws abide by the Constitution, regardless of public opinion. That's why we don't pick Justices by popular elections or with an "American Idol"-style TV contest.

    Good citizens that never get to experience the character of mayor Adams in real life. I have lived my young life in a rural community and observed people of the greatest generation I am so fortunate to live among that generation. I had time in college and time in the military I had met people that did not live among the greatest generation and was forced to live among indecent people and I watched them and learned about evil people that is why I was able to say the mayor in nyc is a fraudulent person a person without a large capacity for intelligence that includes self integrity Adams is just another person without a desire to build a good living condition for all with the only thing he cares about that is himself not the job description Adam’s uses the office of mayor to enhance himself just the way city boys operate no value for anyone but ones self
