New CDC Guidelines

April 8, 2021

For the past year, operating on the advice of the unquestionable scientific experts at the CDC, most of us have been constantly swabbing our hands and every surface of our homes and workplaces with industrial-strength sanitizer to kill the COVID-19 virus.
This outrageous incident where police barged in and interrupted a Good Friday service in a church because of COVID rules happened in the UK, so it could be taken as yet another lesson on why it’s so important to protect our First Amendment (also why it was a great thing that our Founders fought a revolution to separate from Britain, which also gives us the blessed freedom not to have to listen to anything the royal family members say, hint-hint.)

TheNewNeo blog makes some great points about the egregious lies being told by the Democrats about Georgia’s new election integrity laws and how so many big corporations are caving to the false leftist narrative to support it. As she notes, when Biden himself referred to “what they’re doing in Georgia and 40 other states,” he was admitting that more than 4/5ths of America’s states think we need stricter laws to insure an honest and trustworthy vote.

She makes the case that all of this nonsense about showing an ID to vote suppressing black turnout is just propaganda and cover for the real plan: to do away with the Senate filibuster and ram through an unconstitutional federal takeover of elections that legalizes vote fraud over the objections of 4/5ths of the states (and even black Americans, about 70% of whom support voter ID laws), to try to cement their one-party power.

This is why, no matter how many times the lies they’re telling about Georgia are exposed and debunked, they just keep repeating them. The goal isn’t really to change Georgia. It’s to distract you with Georgia while they change America.

Looking at Nullification

April 6, 2021

Any liberals reading this to find out what the other side is saying probably won’t be interested in this article, because it’s a factual, informative piece about US history and the Constitution, two things today’s left hates like Dracula hates garlic.
On Thursday, I talked about the destructive new ethnic studies program that has just been unanimously approved by the California State School Board and the ways in which it’s setting kids up to be indoctrinated, all the way from kindergarten to graduation. I described the “long game” that some are playing to tear our country apart from within.

Pass me a cheeseburger!

March 31, 2021

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who looks as if she’s never been out of a metro area in her life, suggested that we should do away with eating beef because the methane gas that cattle…uh, “expel”…harms the environment. So some people who actually know something about agriculture examined the problem. They discovered that adding a small amount of seaweed to cattle feed reduced cow methane emissions by up to 82%. Let’s celebrate! Pass me a cheeseburger! And some seaweed!

Say, I wonder if adding a little seaweed to the food at the Congressional cafeteria would cut the emissions of toxic gas from our political figures?

Glynn Lunney RIP

March 25, 2021

You all know what a supporter of the space program I am, and what heroes the early NASA astronauts were to me when I was a boy. But not all the heroes got their names and pictures in the newspapers. Just as important as the astronauts were the NASA engineers who accomplished the miracle of space travel.

One of the most important was Glynn Lunney, who joined NASA in 1963; led the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, Skylab and Space Shuttle programs; then spent another 10 years leading spaceflight activities in private industry for Rockwell and United Space Alliance before retiring in 1995. Lunney received the Presidential Medal of Freedom for the Ground Control efforts that brought the ill-fated Apollo 13 team back home to Earth safely.

On Friday, Glynn Lunney died at 84 after a long illness. You might not know his name, but read his obituary and you’ll be amazed at the impact this man had on so many historic landmarks of the space program.

I’ll bet this is the last thing all those young “progressives” who dreamed of working in the Biden White House expected: dozens of his staffers have been suspended, asked to resign or put in remote work programs over their prior marijuana use.

They revealed their pot use in their background checks, having been told it wouldn’t disqualify them from their positions. But like many voters, they made the fatal mistake of believing Biden’s promises. Even in states that have legalized pot, it’s still illegal on the federal level, so that means they admitted to a crime on their background checks. Bet they don’t think background checks are such a great idea now!

Of course, judging by the policies coming out of this White House, maybe they were suspended for smoking too much pot.

No word yet on whether Kamala Harris, who admitted to using pot during the campaign, will be removed from her job as President…sorry, Vice President…or whether Barack “Choom Gang” Obama will be barred from dropping by.

The Atlantic magazine published an article about Xiyue Wang, a Princeton grad student who was doing historical research in Iran when he was arrested and put in prison for 40 months. He suffered abuse such as being blindfolded, restrained, yelled at and told he’d never see his wife and son again. He was accused of stealing documents when all he’d done was make copies of publicly-available records. He was forced into signing a false confession that he was a spy. And he finally learned that his captors didn’t care if he was guilty or innocent. They told him matter of factly that he was a hostage and being held as a bargaining chip.

Wang said he once had the notion that Iran was the way it is because of something dreadful we did to them, but “I slowly saw: They don’t want to be our friends. They don’t want to reconcile.” The state propaganda he saw in prison made it clear: “They want us as an enemy, because that is the reason for their existence.”

President Trump was finally able to arrange a deal to exchange him for an Iranian scientist and bring him home. But when he got back to Princeton, a professor blamed his arrest on Trump and said he must’ve been mistaken for one of our spies who infiltrates Iran.

Wang was furious. He said, “I was arrested three months before Trump was elected. And I was told I was a hostage—that they knew I did nothing against Iran, and that I was nothing but a pawn…This is what they believe at my own university! What are they teaching their students? The facts just don’t matter.” (I’d say that sums up a lot of what they’re “teaching” in universities these days.)

Wang said of his previous liberal illusions about Iran, “I was (bleeping) stupid. Unbelievably stupid. If I could go back, I would slap myself.”

Read the entire article, just to see what he now has to say about Iran and his attempts to slap some sense into the Biden Administration, to dispel its cockeyed delusions about what Iran is really like.

Speaking of states stepping up to oppose the radical left agenda from Washington, on Wednesday, a Florida House committee passed the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act, which would require anyone participating in girls’ sports in the K-12 or college levels to be biologically female.

It passed 13-4, with all the “no” votes coming from Democrats, who made the usual arguments that it would demonize and stigmatize transgender students, and that it’s inspired by hate and transphobic hate, which is ludicrous. It’s inspired by biological reality. Nobody is arguing that transgender students should be discriminated against in any way. They should be free to participate in any sports they want, as long as they’re competing against students of the same biological gender. Schools could even start a sports league for transgender students if they want. But it’s undeniable scientific fact that a biological male has inherent physical advantages over a female, such as height, muscle mass, lung capacity and bone density, that no amount of hormones, surgery or wishful thinking can alter.

If identifying as the opposite sex makes you the same physically, then why are male-to-female transgender athletes smashing all records, while female-to-male transgender athletes are not?

One of the bill’s sponsors, Rep. Kaylee Tuck, pointed to Allyson Felix (pictured above), the fastest woman in the world with six Olympic track and field gold medals. Tuck said Felix’s personal best in the 400 meters could be beaten by hundreds of high school boys. Allowing transgender athletes to compete in girls’ sports would insure there will never be another Allyson Felix. This bill isn’t anti-transgender athletes, it’s pro-female athletes, pro-science and pro-common sense.

The Florida bill still has to make it through the legislature, but Mississippi just passed a similar bill, and one in Idaho has been blocked by a federal judge while a lawsuit challenging it proceeds. Let’s hope this swiftly makes it to the Supreme Court and that the Justices there, both male and female, have the sense to affirm that biology is real.

A study by two university professors of the people charged in the January 6th Capitol riot found that, contrary to Democrat/media claims, 90% of them had no ties to or affiliations with any rightwing groups. Rather than being underclass yahoos, 85% were business owners or white collar workers, including doctors, attorneys, architects and a bank manager. And the overwhelming majority lived in predominantly Democratic areas.

The surprised researchers said this shows the anger over the 2020 election is much more widespread than just a handful of radical groups, and “this is a very big sign that we’re dealing with a new political movement with violence at its core that can’t be reduced to the usual suspects.”

Talk about tunnel vision! That sounds like a feeble excuse to brand half the nation as a violent political threat, which is exactly the fantasy the left would like you to believe.

Maybe those who live in predominantly Democratic areas weren’t violent and paranoid, but they just spend so much time around leftists that they know what they say and what they’re capable of, and that’s why they didn’t trust the results of the election. And maybe instead of using this study as proof that half the country should be demonized, it should be taken as a sign that half the country isn’t buying the narrative, particularly not when every question about the election is met with censorship and “canceling,” while all attempts to investigate such questions are fought and stonewalled.

Maybe it means that if Biden wants to end the suspicions and get the entire nation to accept him as the legitimate President, he should call for an open, bipartisan, transparent examination of the 2020 election. You know, exactly as I suggested right here, about three days after the election.

President Biden’s press secretary Jen Psaki announced that he will finally hold his first White House press conference on March 25th. That will mark 66 days since he took office, breaking a record for going without facing the press that stretches back over a century.

In what has to be the understatement of the century, Psaki added that it’s possible Biden will be presented with a list of approved journalists. I would imagine that not only will the journalists be approved, but their questions will be written for them well in advance, and the answers will be on the TelePrompter. If he manages to get through it without saying something like “Indian immigrants are taking over the country” or calling someone a dog-faced pony soldier, it will be hailed by the media as the greatest press conference any President has given in the history of ever.

The New York Post’s Michael Goodwin also expects the media will lower their expectations and raise their partisan enthusiasm. He cites this astounding quote from Politico:

“The President so far has surprised some of his former colleagues and allies with a largely gaffe-free White House debut after a lifetime of verbal stumbles.”

Goodwin notes that it’s easy to avoid gaffes when (A.) you never give press conferences, and (B.) when you do speak and make a lot of gaffes (the White House had to issue three “corrections” after Biden spoke to CBS), the media simply refuse to report it.
