2. “The Politics”:

Instapundit has a good (and growing) round-up of stories about how Democrat leaders are insisting that mask mandates must remain, maybe forever, because of “The Science”…except in states where they’re in political danger, and then they’re dropping mask mandates faster than a CNN producer can drop his pants. This suggests that “The Science” isn’t really as important as “The Politics.”

Even CNN can read the writing on the wall…

But voters in blue states shouldn’t be fooled: just because a Democrat Governor rescinds a state-level mask mandate before the election doesn’t mean all the local officials from school boards on up will end theirs, if the Governor doesn’t order them to.

Incidentally, I love the quote from that piece in which Jen Psaki talks about how we must follow “The Guidance” like a preacher referring to the Ten Commandments. "The Guidance" is just their own CDC that’s changed its story on masks repeatedly, and we know that the first time, they were outright lying to us because they wanted to reserve all the masks for front line health workers. God didn’t say, “Thou shalt not kill…No, wait, killing’s okay now…Okay, go back to not killing, but only indoors, and prominent Democrats can ignore this rule.”

3. Outrage Works, Sometimes For the Good:

Facing furious bipartisan backlash, the IRS announced that it will “transition away” from its plans to use third-party facial recognition technology to allow people to access their online tax accounts. Nobody wants to show their face when they have to deal with the IRS.

4. Must-Read Article:

Former Time magazine foreign correspondent Michael Walsh was on the scene of history-changing people’s uprisings before, such as the overthrow of Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceau?escu.

Walsh sees strong similarities between the way those autocratic governments crushed people’s rights in the name of the collective good and the way governments have used COVID restrictions to take away people’s rights and crack down on any resistance. He also see similarities between the way those tyrants were eventually overthrown and the Truckers Freedom Convey protests that started in Canada and are now spreading worldwide. He even quotes a line that I’ve quoted so many times over the years, I can't even remember how many: “Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it.” See, I just repeated that quote again.

Sidenote: Before the Google cops ban me for sharing an essay that refers to the “great pandemic hoax,” let me be clear that neither Walsh nor I are suggesting that COVID isn’t a real disease that can have deadly consequences for vulnerable people. The hoax to which he refers is the way that governments misrepresented that disease and turned it into a “weapon of mass economic and emotional destruction” rather than dealing with it rationally based on its real level of threat to public health.

5. Here’s $30 million of your tax money at work:

In May, the Biden Administration will begin distributing grants to nonprofits and local governments to help make drug use “safer” for addicts.

This includes funds to provide “smoking kits” which will include new, sanitary pipes for smoking crack, meth and other “illicit substances.” After all, we want to make sure that when someone is smoking crack, they’re doing it the safe, healthy way. Other government-provided supplies will include clean syringes. This funding is part of the Democrats’ “American Rescue Plan,” which passed the Senate on party lines with Kamala Harris casting the tie-breaking vote. It’s being sold as part of the Democrats’ “equity” push, with preference going to drug paraphernalia suppliers who serve the African-American and LGBTQ communities of hard drug addicts.

Some might have a different word for this other than “rescue,” “equity” or “compassion.” A word like “enabler.” That’s the term used in 12-step programs for people who think they’re “helping” addicts but who are actually just helping them to kill themselves. Some might even say that deliberately enabling black and gay addicts to continue smoking crack or meth instead of helping them get off of it is shockingly racist and homophobic. I guess they just don’t understand “equity.”

Similar programs have been tried in blue cities, and some have given up after seeing how they just increased open drug addiction. It’s certainly worked like gangbusters in San Francisco and Seattle. If you’re old enough to remember when “SNL” was funny, they once did a sketch about Democrats mourning Michael Dukakis’ presidential loss in which a Joan Baez impersonator sang sadly about the Democrats’ lost dream: “Free needles for the addicts, free condoms for the kids…” Back then, it was meant to satirize the crazy things Republicans believed Democrats would do if they got into power. Today, Democrats are in power, and that's the official government policy. Moral: Never underestimate how crazy Democrats become when they get a little power.

PS – As I tweeted when I first heard about this story, Presidential relatives have often had an impact on policy. Lady Bird Johnson beautified the highways, Laura Bush promoted literacy, and now Hunter Biden has inspired free government crack pipes.

6. Read this:

For all those who claim that parents who oppose children to wear masks are just being selfish, read what you’re doing to these children and then try selling that.

And for those who claim that unmasked children are a deadly danger to teachers and other children, I’ll once again link to this article by John Tierney at City Journal about the actual death risk of COVID.

In a nutshell: even using admittedly inflated CDC numbers, the risk of death from COVID to a child age 5-18 is one in 200,000 -- far less than the risk of a child dying in a traffic accident or by murder, suicide, poisoning, drowning, cancer or heart disease. And a year-long NIH study that included the Delta variant wave found not a single COVID death among healthy, vaccinated adults under 65, which I assume covers all teachers.

So why are we still torturing our children with this? If we were consistent about avoiding risk, we’d be banning them from going swimming or riding to school in cars.

7. “Follow the Science! Off A Cliff!”

President Biden’s top science adviser, Eric Lander, resigned Monday night after “credible evidence” surfaced that he had created a toxic work environment at the Office of Science and Technology.

A two-month White House investigation revealed multiple accusations that he frequently bullied, cut off and dismissed subordinates, and was particularly belittling and demeaning to women staffers. This wasn’t surprising, since Lander is regarded as a science genius, but he had a reputation for being nasty and not giving proper credit to women in his field.

When Biden took office, he vowed that anyone who bullied lower-level staffers would be fired “on the spot. No ifs, ands or buts.” But he stuck by Lander until the report was revealed by Politico, possibly after some angry staffer leaked it.

Or maybe Dr. Fauci leaked it because, after all, only he IS “Science.”

8. Excellent Article:

This is an excellent article by Jason Yates, CEO of My Faith Votes (full disclosure, I’m the National Honorary Chairman) about politicians who cherry pick and misrepresent the Bible to score political points.

It also helps your case if you not only quote the Bible correctly and in context, but you don’t confuse it with various song lyrics or pull phrases out at random to toss into a Biblical word salad.

9.  Woke fail:

Wait, so you’re telling me that comic book fans did NOT snatch up DC Comics’ new “woke” version of Superman about Superman and Lois’s son who’s a bisexual social justice warrior and climate change activist who’s shown kissing his boyfriend? That after an initial surge of interest ginned up by all the fawning media coverage, readers decided they didn’t LIKE having “The Agenda” slammed into them like a speeding locomotive? In short: nobody bought it?

I haven’t been this shocked and surprised since I saw Clark Kent take off his glasses and realized he was Superman!

    Dear Huck, I lost track of you somehow and was really getting concerned that you may be in poor health!!! I see your picture on the Evening Edition this evening and am relieved to see your body on the TV. I am also very happy to see you WITHOUT your beard. You look 10-20 years younger. I am so glad you made that change. I am wondering what other people said about your beard but maybe they were much kinder and know to keep their mouth shut! I know you are on a different show and I believe on a different station. I have been unable to find it and wonder if you would tell me how to see it. I understand their is a charge for watching it. That is okay and worth it. You are one of the few people (in politics) that I really enjoy listening to. Thank you and God Bless You!!!

    Governor I can almost see it happening with today's technology of masks being made of a person's face (possibly from a photo) and with a bit of other info logging on to the IRS website...or maybe I have watched too many science fiction films.

    Please check out this link, where a doctor who has been a respected physician and researcher for 41 years has been suspended by a regulatory agency for "misinformation", although they have not defined term, nor has the state legislature made a law against such a thing.

    The attempt to take America down by Obama and his Cartel is actually pretty good you get biden a puppet so easily manitulated to carry out all the destructive policies that will destroy the United States. So far so good if you are communist the US is being transformed by the power of American Government. Other Nations are trying to destroy us I think America is the country that will destroy the United States. Biden ultimate hater of America is laughing at the country while Obama stays in the background safe and sound and the hollow biden takes the beating he truly embraces the negative reactions to all the insane policies he has put on the population he stills has 40 % living and loving America's nightmare!

    With Obama and biden teaming up the Obama cartel is still in tack and using biden as a punching bag in all the foreign affairs using john Kerry in all the efforts to self serve while selling American assets these people do not care about America’s future or it present the private jets and mansions are all that matters to Obama polosi and the Democratic Party members. valued assets are the only goals of biden Obama and the rest of the democratic cartel the addiction to wealth will hopefully lead to self destruction
