Happy Columbus Day, which since 1971 has been celebrated on the second Monday in October – although those of us old enough to have actually learned anything about Columbus in school other than what a tragedy it was that he came to America know that he actually landed in the New World on October 12, 1492.

This is not a stunt

October 10, 2022

The media scoffed that busing illegal immigrants from red states to blue “sanctuary cities” was just a “stunt,” but it turned out to be the most brilliant plan ever to expose the emptiness and hypocrisy of liberal virtue signaling.

Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre a simple question: “You’ve said the President is responsible for gas prices coming down. Is he responsible for them going up?” Her response: “So, it’s a lot more nuanced than that…There have been global challenges…There’s been (the) pandemic, and Putin’s war.” She rambled on from there.

Again, I have to say that a lot of people pile on Karine, but I just can’t bring myself to do it. I feel sorry for her. Not even Einstein could do her job. While she doesn’t have to face the shark tank of hostility that my daughter Sarah did, at least Sarah had solid, factual answers to their stupid biased questions.

Poor Karine faces the simplest questions and has no answers at all, because there are none. Every day, she’s sent out completely unprepared and has to defend totally indefensible policies, like open borders letting in millions of illegal entrants or skyrocketing gas prices because Biden is deliberately trying to destroy our domestic energy industry. It’s said that if you have no facts on your side, all you can do is “baffle them with bull (BLEEP.)” Well, that’s what her reply was, and it was certainly baffling. So by that standard, she’s doing a pretty good job.

Related: Proving that it’s impossible for anyone to do Karine Jean-Pierre’s job of defending the indefensible, Fox News border reporter Bill Melugin asked a series of Democrat office holders if they agreed with the Biden White House’s (laughable) claim that the border is secure. He asked a simple question for which the answer (yes or no) takes no more than a second. Yet look at how many of them just didn’t have time to answer. They all had to get someplace else. Or to be more precise: anyplace else.

Democrats are hoping to salvage their political fortunes in November by firing up a groundswell of support from women. I guess they’re hoping that women won’t notice that thanks to their policies, not only are biological men taking over women’s sports and invading women’s locker rooms, now they’re actually taking over women’s locker rooms and kicking the women out. No, that’s not an exaggeration.

Here’s the story from Vermont’s Randolph High School, where a “transgender” player on the girls’ volleyball team claimed to feel uncomfortable because the girls’ complained of having to share their locker room with a biological male. So the school kicked the girls’ team out of their own locker room and forced them to change in a small girls’ bathroom. Where they probably had to wait for a biological male to finish up first.

An honest question for American women who vote Democrat: is protecting late-term abortions really so important that you’ll keep voting for people who are not only making every other aspect of your lives more expensive, difficult and dangerous, but who are actively working to erase your gender’s very existence?

Supreme Court News

October 4, 2022

A new session of the Supreme Court starts this week, and observers are watching closely to see if all the attempted threats and intimidation from the left over the overturning of Roe v. Wade will dissuade the Justices from blocking liberal activist rulings. I wouldn’t bet on that.

In what could signal a major victory for free speech over Big Tech censorship, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a lower court and upheld a Texas law barring social media sites from censoring users based on their viewpoints.

Read the full article for quotes from the ruling, which smacks down the social media giants’ pleas for sweeping protection of their political biases in no uncertain terms. Excepts:

“Today we reject the idea that corporations have a freewheeling First Amendment right to censor what people say.” Amen! And…

“The implications of the platforms' argument are staggering. On the platforms' view, email providers, mobile phone companies, and banks could cancel the accounts of anyone who sends an email, makes a phone call, or spends money in support of a disfavored political party, candidate, or business.” (Note: you could argue that financial transaction companies are already doing this, and they need to be stopped. Let's pray this ruling will help stop them.)
