It could have been worse
As bad as President Biden’s interview on “Sixty Minutes” was, Bob Hoge at Redstate.com reminds us that it could have been much worse for him if it had been conducted by an actual journalist instead of CBS’s Bob Pelley. He tossed softball after softball and never drilled down with tough follow-ups, no matter how nonsensical or patently false Biden’s responses were.
There is a report about the Soros-funded nonprofit that’s allegedly offering payments to social media influencers to create slanderous content about Republicans. That’s yet another example of a group that keeps its tax-free status despite obvious leftist political activity. This article reminds us that they’re hardly alone.
The IRS is notorious for targeting conservative groups for anything that remotely smacks of partisan political activity, while remaining willfully blind to the suspicious finances and raw political motivations of leftist “tax-free nonprofits,” like Black Lives Matter.
Another Franken in the news
It’s been reported that Iowa Democratic Senate nominee Mike Franken’s former campaign manager filed a police report accusing him of "unwanted advances, grabbing her, and kissing her on the mouth without consent." Ironically, Mike Franken was just endorsed by former Sen. Al Franken, who resigned after being accused of inappropriate sexual conduct.
“Everything You Know Is Wrong” Dept.
A new peer-reviewed analysis found major flaws in a Bangladesh study that’s been cited as the principal proof that wearing face masks help slow the spread of COVID. Another study in the peer-reviewed Nature journal “Communications Biology” found that hydroxychloroquine "blocks SARS-CoV-2 entry into the endocytic pathway," the primary method of entry for the Omicron variant. In summation, they're claiming that HCL helps and masks don't.
So please mark these two things on your score cards for “Things that were dangerous misinformation that had to be censored” a year ago, but are now probably true.
Mr. “Save the Planet”
President Biden is taking criticism for showing up late to Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral. The reason is that he refused to join other world leaders on a VIP shuttle bus. Instead, he got special dispensation to fly in the armored Presidential limo known as “The Beast,” and got held up in traffic. He ended up having to wait to be seated, then getting stuck back in the 14th row.
As embarrassing as all that is, nobody is mentioning the first thing that struck me: I thought Biden was Mr. “Save the Planet,” the guy who’s going to force all of us to give up gas-powered cars to reduce our carbon footprint. But he not only refused to ride a bus and insisted on taking an armored gas-powered limo, he also FLEW that gas-powered limo over from America on a jet that emitted more CO2 than many people will generate in a lifetime.
We’ve all grown used to the staggering hypocrisy of green crusaders taking gas-guzzling limos and flying around on private jets, but now they’re flying their gas-guzzling limos around on private jets.
California’s priorities are more ridiculous than we thought
From the state that brought us such brilliant ideas as mandating that everyone drive an electric car when they don’t even have enough power to keep the lights on comes the latest stroke of California leftist genius: letting people compost their deceased relatives.
The Other White Meat
Doug Ramsey, COO of the vegan food company Beyond Meat, was taken into police custody following an alleged road rage incident.
As a heavy crowd was exiting the Razorback Stadium garage after a University of Arkansas football game, the driver of a Subaru inched in front of Ramsey’s car. Witnesses say Ramsey got out, punched out the Subaru’s back window, threatened to kill the driver, and bit off the tip of his nose before other drivers could separate them.
It’s certainly an odd thing for a vegan to do. Or to have the strength to do! Maybe he was just desperate to taste real meat. But it does prove that there are worse things to bite into than a fake vegan meat patty.
This is a lengthy article by Matt Vespa about an even longer piece by Matt Taibi, but it’s important information to know. It traces the history of how the FBI went off the rails after 9/11, expanding and abusing its new powers to deal with terrorists to gradually morph from the gold standard of law enforcement agencies into a political hit squad targeting anyone who opposes Biden’s leftist policies as “domestic terrorists,” even a former President.
