DAILY BIBLE VERSE
A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil [a]treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.

If you’re a member of a Catholic Church, you might want to ensure you have extra security Sunday. Some of America’s totally-not-dangerous-at-all leftwing extremist groups are planning to target Catholic Churches on Sunday (Mothers’ Day) because of their intense zealotry over abortion and their raging religious bigotry. Here are the details. Be prepared:
This story also notes that the White House declined to discourage protesters from doxxing and targeting the private homes of Supreme Court Justices. Various groups are promoting such thuggish mob tactics. One declared, “Republicans have given away your right to choose, now take away their right to govern,” which sounds like what Nancy Pelosi would call “insurrection” if they weren't her insurrectionists. Another group is named “Ruth Sent Us” after Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Apparently, among the many things they don’t understand is that Justice Ginsburg also thought Roe v. Wade was improperly based.
When pressed as to whether this threatening mob behavior was extreme, Jen Psaki said, "Peaceful protest, no. Peaceful protest is not extreme. We certainly encourage people to keep it peaceful and not resort to any level of violence." Funny, that’s exactly what Trump said to protesters on January 6th. 2020, and Democrats are still accusing him of fomenting insurrection.
Can you imagine what they would say about any Republican office holder who encouraged enraged mobs to target the homes of Democrat office holders? Remember how we were all supposed to celebrate the return of moderation, compromise and the “adults being back in charge”? Just curious, when is that going to start?
Also, notice the photo of the disgusting “My Body My Choice” graffiti spray-painted on the door of the Sacred Heart of Mary Church. That phrase is back. So I guess liberals are now opposed to vaccine mandates.
Russia-Ukraine War Update
Here’s today’s Fox News link to continually-updated Russia-Ukraine news:
Recent developments: Nearly 500 civilians have been evacuated from the Azovstal steel plant in Mariupol, which is under heavy ground assault by Russian troops. But Ukrainian fighters there are refusing to surrender. They reportedly plan to “stand to the end” and hope for a miracle.
After reversing its policy not to send heavy battle artillery to Ukraine, Germany is sending seven self-propelled Howitzers that can hit targets up to 25 miles away. They’ll also train the Ukrainians in using them. The Netherlands is also sending five Howitzers.
The Pentagon denied providing specific intelligence to help Ukraine sink the Russian ship, the Moskva. These days, the Pentagon only knows how to sink our own ships.
April Jobs Report
The Labor Department released the April jobs report Friday morning. It showed that 428,000 jobs were created, more than the 400,000 expected. The unemployment rate held steady at 3.6%. But the labor force participation rate unexpectedly declined by 0.2% to 62.2%. Jobs numbers for February and March were revised downwards by a combined 39,000. Earlier this week, it was reported that first quarter productivity dropped by 7.5%, three times the expected 2.5%. That could partially be because of new hires requiring training and being less productive.
That article has a lot of information about our current economic situation in one handy spot. And if you’re getting nauseous watching your stocks plunge, start to rebound, then plunge again, read this and you’ll at least have some idea of what’s going on so you can brace yourself on the roller coaster.
Senator Paul responds to recent CDC news
I told you yesterday about the CDC using our tax money to buy cell phone location data so it could spy on Americans’ movements to make sure we were complying with their COVID dictates. Here’s more on that from Sen. Rand Paul, who blows away the feeble excuses and rationalizations for it, explains why it’s so dangerous and pernicious, and says there ought to be a law banning it. Let’s hope there will be one after November, when Sen. Paul is in the majority.
A new “Environmental Justice” office
You’ve probably noticed one of the quirks of the modern left is that they take some favorite buzzword, Superglue the word “justice” on the end of it, and it suddenly becomes a very important issue, even if justice has nothing to do with it. This is how we got “social justice,” how aborting babies became “reproductive justice,” and now, the Biden “Justice” Department has created a new “Environmental Justice” office.
Read about its mission. It will remind you of the old joke about the New York Times headline: “World to end tomorrow. Women and minorities hardest hit.” In the midst of record murder rates and deadly drugs flooding the nation, this is what Biden’s DOJ is fixated on. That and treating concerned parents like terrorists.
As soon as the Republicans get back into power, there are going to be so many awful remnants of this Administration that will have to be removed. Not have their budgets reduced, but be yanked out by the roots and bagged like toxic weeds. That would be environmental justice.
A new White House Press Secretary
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki is officially departing for a job at MSNBC, where spinning ridiculous justifications for Joe Biden’s failure pays a lot better.
Starting May 13th, Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre will take over her job. It looks like a case of “Meet the new boss, even worse than the old boss.”
Since my own daughter held that position, I have sympathy for anyone in it and wish her well, but I don’t have high hopes considering her background and what she’s got to work with. It’s also a very different job now. It used to involve trying to talk sense to reporters who were relentlessly attacking you. Now it involves talking nonsense to reporters who relentlessly praise you.
Speaking of the government policing “disinformation”…
If you were told by unquestionable authorities that fears of any COVID vaccine side effects were crazy conspiracy theories and were forced to take the Johnson & Johnson jab on threat of losing your job, note that the FDA just revised its emergency authorization to sharply limit the use of Johnson & Johnson's COVID-19 vaccine due to a rare but potentially fatal blood clotting condition. More details at the link, but no apologies.
I Just Wanted to Say:
