Countering their own Democrat narrative


Despite her claims to support police, Kamala calls for supporters to “fight in the streets” to return to Roe’s killing

As noted by Red State and captured by the RNC Research video, Kamala Harris has been encouraging violence over the recent Dobbs decision in the Supreme Court.

Harris recently fired her speechwriter (no one believes the resignation was voluntary) as part of an attempt to improve her public persona, and that’s been about as helpful as a sharp stick in the eye. No matter who is writing her material, the vice president is still the vice president–and that was apparent in her appearance at the National Urban League on Friday.

When Harris arrived, she hugged the host and then ripped off her mask. That’s noteworthy because the White House just announced on Thursday that she was a close contact of Joe Biden, who has COVID-19. I guess CDC guidelines don’t apply to the administration, though.

Biden encouraged abortion rights activists to “keep protesting”

Axios reported in a 10 July 2022 article how Joe Biden encouraged the wackos on the abortion-Left to “keep protesting.”

President Biden on Sunday encouraged abortion rights activists to “keep protesting,” ABC News reported.

The big picture: Over 1,000 protesters marched to the White House on Saturday, calling on Biden to do more to protect access to abortion, according to the New York Times.

What he’s saying: “Keep protesting,” Biden told reporters while on a bike ride in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, ABC reported. “Keep making your point. It’s critically important.”

  • “We can do a lot of things to accommodate the rights of women,” he added, per ABC. “In the meantime, fundamentally, the only way to change this is to have a national law that reinstates Roe v Wade.”
  • Biden also said he is looking at the possibility of declaring a public health emergency over abortion access and “whether I have the authority to do that and what impact that would have.”

So, the next time Joe or Kamala say they support the police, bring this up.

7-Eleven sees a bloodbath at their corporate headquarters

Business Insider details the almost 900 jobs lost at the corporate headquarters of 7-Eleven during Joe Biden’s “strong job market.”

The night before the layoffs, hundreds of 7-Eleven corporate employees — including “superstars” who’d shined in recent years, newly promoted up-and-comers, and expecting parents — received meeting invites. Some were asked to show up at the “cantina,” an eatery on the ground floor of the company’s headquarters in Irving, Texas.

By the time those workers clocked in on Monday, July 18, it was clear that cuts were underway. Employees paced around the office, crying and commiserating. After arriving at their scheduled cantina appointments, they were ushered into offices usually occupied by the human resources department. There, they faced their managers, HR representatives, and a squad of unfamiliar security guards. 

One laid-off employee who lost their job that Tuesday recalled to Insider that their manager said, “Take some deep breaths. Everything’s going to be fine.”

Then, that worker was laid off, along with at least 880 of their colleagues.

The “journalist” who said “one laid-off employee who lost their job” should be next

With the triple insults of:

  1. Caving to transgender idiocy,
  2. Not recognizing the unique nature of both femininity and masculinity, and
  3. Not using singular possessive pronoun (his or her) when a singular subject (one employee) was used …

The “journalist” who wrote this piece deserves to be canned.

Rivian begins laying off 6% of workforce

Tech Crunch informs us of the lay off at Rivian.

Rivian has started laying off about 6% of its workforce as part of a restructuring plan, according to an internal email from founder and CEO RJ Scaringe.

The companywide email, which was sent out Wednesday and viewed by TechCrunch, alerted all employees that those affected would receive an email invite from their manager with more context and details. Scaringe reiterated that the manufacturing operations team working at its Normal, Illinois plant would not be impacted.

“Over the last six months, the world has dramatically changed with inflation reaching record highs, interest rates rapidly rising and commodity prices continuing to climb — all of which have contributed to the global capital markets tightening,” Scaringe wrote in the email. “We are financially well positioned and our mission is more important than ever, but to fully realize our potential, our strategy must support our sustainable growth as we ramp toward profitability. We need to be able to continue to grow and scale without additional financing in this macro environment. To achieve this, we have simplified our product roadmap and focused on where it is most impactful to deploy capital.”

For Scaringe and the executive team, the priorities include ramping and enhancing the R1 (which is the electric truck and SUV), and the electric delivery van, accelerating development and launch of R2 and future platforms, ramping its go-to-market capabilities such as charging and service infrastructure and optimizing costs and operating expenses across the business.

A list of layoffs in the tech sector

NBC affiliate WRAL in Raleigh, North Carolina, reports the following layoffs in the technical sector.

Here’s an update on the latest job cuts:

  • Invitae announced it planned to lay off as many as 1,000 workers globally and Arrival, with a North American headquarters in Charlotte, announced it could cut 30% of its staff in the coming months.
  • Microsoft, which as recently as last month, told WRAL TechWire that it was hiring for hundreds of positions locally in the Triangle, has now also announced that it will cut hundreds of jobs, and the WRAL TechWire Jobs Report shows a drop off in the number of openings locally at the firm.
  • Peloton, which had something of its own pandemic boom and bought a North Carolina company previously, announced it would no longer manufacture its own stationary exercise bicycles, and would lay off some 600 workers.
  • And Biogen, which has a big presence in RTP, announced layoffs in a move to reduce costs last week, as well.
  • Earlier this month, technology startup Adwerx announced it would lay off 40 workers, citing “macroeconomic uncertainty.”

How many ways can Biden screw up the border?


Biden can enact so much anti-police, pro-illegal immigration, pro-socialist, anti-family agendas that formerly loyal districts flip in South Texas

“Defund the Cartels” — Representative Mayra Flores talks about the border crisis

Breitbart reports on how Representative Myra Flores lays out the poor track record of the Biden regime in regard to the border.

A newly-elected Texas Congresswoman is calling for the defunding of the Mexican cartels effectively in control of the U.S. southwestern border.

“We need to defund the cartels,” U.S. Congresswoman Mayra Flores said during an exclusive interview in Spanish with Breitbart News, where she talked about how criminal organizations from Mexico are the only ones benefiting from the current border crisis.

Flores made history in June when she became the first Mexican-born female to be elected to the House of Representatives. She flipped Texas Congressional District 34, which was historically a Democrat stronghold.

“Unfortunately, we have a border that is in control of criminal organizations,” Flores said, referring to the operational control along the border by the Gulf Cartel and the Cartel Del Noreste faction of Los Zetas. Currently, the Gulf Cartel operates one of the most active human and drug trafficking corridors in Flores’s district. “It is a sad reality, but no one can cross the border into this country without having to pay thousands of dollars to criminal organizations.”

The issue which has been largely ignored by most politicians in Washington and helped create a cycle of violence and abuse where women and children suffer unspeakable horrors at the hands of cartel-connected smugglers, she said.

In many cases, victims suffer sexual and physical abuse. In other instances, victims are kidnapped and held for ransom. “It is something that is happening that in reality, it embarrasses me that it is happening in this country because we are better than that,” Flores added.

Biden’s turning of the border over to the cartels must be reversed

Biden has enabled the cartels by opening up the southern border to unbridled illegal immigration and a mostly-unchecked flow of drugs across that same border. When Texas attempted to either ship illegals to the District of Columbia or jail those illegal aliens on crimes committed (destruction of property, theft, assault, and other charges), Merrick Garland’s Department of Justice sued Texas with charges that the civil rights of the illegal aliens have been violated by Texas through some form of discrimination.

Biden touts allowing a record number of foreign workers from Mexico

The Epoch Times outlines Biden’s bragging on how he allowed record numbers of foreign workers from Mexico.

President Joe Biden on Tuesday touted the “record” number of foreign workers his administration has allowed into the United States from Mexico, stating that the move has boosted job opportunities.

Biden made the comments during a press conference with Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador at the White House at a time when an unprecedented number of illegal aliens continue to try to make their way into the country.

Meanwhile, inflation stands at a 40-year-high in the United States and the number of employed Americans has declined.

The current unemployment rate stands at 3.6 percent, according to the Labor Department, marking the lowest since February 2020.

“My administration is leading the way to creating work opportunities through legal pathways,” Biden said on Tuesday. “And last year, my administration set a record. We issued more than 300,000 H-2 visas for Mexican workers.”

“We also reached a five-year high in the visas we issued to Central Americans, and we’re on pace to double this in fiscal year for—this fiscal year for Central America.”

According to an analysis by the Center for Immigration Studies of Bureau of Labor Statistics data for January 2021, unemployment among native-born Americans remained much higher than before the COVID-19 pandemic.

The number of unemployed American natives in January 2021 stood at 8.6 million, according to the analysis, while the number of unemployed immigrants was 2.2 million.

Separate data from the nonpartisan independent think tank, The Migration Policy Institute, finds that the unemployment rate was equal at 3.3 percent for both U.S.-born workers and immigrant workers as of April 2022.

More Jobs, Wages Rising

Another study by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) which looked at job figures from September 2020 to March 2022 noted that there are currently approximately 11.5 million job openings in the United States and 14.73 million employable Americans.

“This means that there are 3.23 million more workers in the country than open jobs,” according to FAIR.

Despite the latest data regarding unemployment, Biden on Tuesday stated that since he stepped into office, his administration has “created more jobs than any president ever has in the beginning of his administration—almost 8.5 million new jobs.”

So Biden wants to make it so that we not only pay inflated prices, but we cannot get a job?

It looks like Biden is trying to squeeze the normal American from the pricing end and the jobs end.

Joe Biden’s Deputies to Enable Abortions for Migrants Raped on Way to Texas

Breitbart tells us how the Biden regime has been enabling abortions of those who have been raped or sexually trafficked during their trip to America.

Present Joe Biden’s border officials have decided they will transport detained migrants who want abortions to U.S. states that allow abortions, according to the Wall Street Journal.

“Why are these [detained] women pregnant in the first place?” asked Rosemary Jenks, the policy director for NumbersUSA. “If they want abortions,] they could have been impregnated on their way here, probably by [members of the] cartels … that is probably a significant portion of the cases,” she told Breitbart News.

The Wall Street Journal reported on July 12 on the policy adopted by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency:

The memo is from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Acting Director Tae Johnson and is addressed to Corey Price, head of the agency’s enforcement division.

“This memorandum serves as a reminder of existing ICE policies and standards requiring that pregnant individuals detained in ICE immigration custody have access to full reproductive health care,” the memo states. “This is also a reminder that, pursuant to existing ICE policy, it may be necessary to transfer a detained pregnant individual within an area of responsibility (AOR) or to another AOR, when appropriate and practicable, in order to ensure such access.”

Biden’s agency has opened the nation’s doors — and the U.S. job market — to more than one million economic migrants since January 2021. Many of the migrants are killed or raped while trying to reach Biden’s welcome.

Biden has opened the borders in hopes of flooding America with new Democrats. But if this is how he treats those he “welcomes,” then he might be losing them, too.

Speaking for the Hispanics within my circle of influence, all of them hold some Christian beliefs. A few hold to a evangelical tradition and the greater number hold to the Catholic tradition. None of them would appreciate their girls being treated like this. Therefore, this is a guaranteed way for Biden to kill more votes within the Latino realm.

Fighting Fentanyl: The Biden Administration’s Failure of Leadership

The U.S. House’s Roll Call explains how Biden’s border policy has lead to a failure of leadership in the attempt to stem the flow of fentanyl across the border.

The latest data on the opioid crisis shows how the COVID-19 pandemic reversed the progress America was making in decreasing drug overdose deaths.

More than 90,000 Americans died of overdoses between September 2019 and September 2020. Last year, drug overdose deaths rose by more than 27 percent in New York and more than 24 percent in Ohio. Based on current trends, we expect 2021 to be as bad, if not worse.

This heartbreaking surge comes after nationwide drug overdose deaths declined in 2018, for the first time since 1990, and we continued to make progress in 2019. Now, at local events like a Drug Take Back Day in Xenia, Ohio, and at a new addiction treatment service location in Syracuse, N.Y., our constituents tell us drug overdoses are getting worse every day.

The main driver of this surge in overdose deaths are synthetic opioids, and in particular, fentanyl. Fentanyl is cheap to manufacture and 50 times deadlier than heroin — only 2 mg is enough to kill someone. In 2019, there were 70,630 overdose deaths and more than half of those, 36,359, involved fentanyl, sometimes mixed with other drugs, like cocaine, crystal meth or heroin. That’s why keeping fentanyl out of our communities is a matter of life or death.

In years past, most of the fentanyl flooding our streets was coming into our country, shockingly, from China through the mail. A bipartisan report from the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations found that while federal law required private mail carriers to screen packages entering the U.S. to allow law enforcement to identify and stop suspicious packages and prosecute the traffickers, the U.S. Postal Service was exempt. Thus, smugglers were able to mail fentanyl right to people’s doorsteps.

In response, we passed the bipartisan Synthetics Trafficking and Overdose Prevention, or STOP, Act to close this loophole. It worked, but now we are learning that drug traffickers are shipping fentanyl through our southern border with Mexico. According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, “Mexican cartels are increasingly responsible for producing and supplying fentanyl to the U.S. market.” These cartels get chemical ingredients, primarily from China, to produce deadly fentanyl in Mexico to then ship it into our communities.  

Recent data by U.S. Customs and Border Protection shows a massive increase in seizures of fentanyl at the border. CBP has seized more than 600 pounds of deadly fentanyl every month for the last 12 months — a record. In the last six months alone, it has seized 5,400 pounds of fentanyl, enough to kill 1.2 billion people or the entire population of the United States more than three times over. This six-month total is more than all of last year, and CBP believes the vast majority of drugs are getting in without being stopped.

The reason for this is clear — the Biden administration’s radical policy changes have encouraged the drug cartels to smuggle more unlawful migrants and lethal, illicit substances across our southern border. The Biden administration systematically dismantled the existing border security framework put in place by the Trump administration, including revoking the COVID-19 emergency declaration for the border, stopping construction of the border fence, suspending the Remain in Mexico policy, canceling Asylum Cooperative Agreements and severely reducing immigration enforcement within the United States. Last month, Immigration and Customs Enforcement had the fewest deportations in its nearly two decades of existence.

Without deterrence policies, traffickers see a green light to send more drugs and people to the southern border. They use vulnerable individuals, particularly families and unaccompanied children who require significant processing time, as a way to distract Border Patrol agents to allow them to then move large quantities of fentanyl into the United States. This all leads to increased supply of deadly fentanyl, which means more drugs in our communities at lower prices.

(Read at Roll Call about a 4-step plan to stop fentanyl)

As America locked down, the fentanyl problem blossomed. Now it needs to be stemmed.

We need to shut the borders while the COVID issues do not have us bottled in our homes.

Furthermore, the COVID issue seems much too convenient for politicians who need mail-in ballots and too easily exaggerated by those who would profit (by power, by financial reward, or other motive) from large numbers of COVID cases. Therefore, I am really reticent to lend my trust to anyone who uses COVID as an excuse for anything (from not locking down the border to not securing the election).

The 10-year-old girl who Biden mentioned having traveled for an abortion was raped by a alleged illegal alien

As proof that Biden cannot get out of the way of screwing up his own story, Breitbart points out that the girl mentioned in Biden’s pro-abortion speech was raped by one of Biden’s illegal aliens.

An illegal alien is accused of raping a 10-year-old girl whose story was cited by President Joe Biden after she traveled from Ohio to Indiana to seek an abortion.

Gershon Fuentes, a 27-year-old illegal alien, was arraigned in court on Wednesday after he was arrested and charged. He allegedly admitted to raping the 10-year-old girl on two occasions in Columbus, Ohio.

The girl traveled to Indianapolis, Indiana, to get an abortion. A saliva sample was collected from Fuentes at the time of his arrest and detectives said DNA samples from him and from the girl’s siblings are being tested to verify the felony charges.

An Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) official confirmed to Breitbart News that Fuentes is an illegal alien living in the United States. The official also said the agency has placed a detainer on Fuentes to take him into their custody if he is released from local police custody.

Assistant Franklin County Prosecutor Dan Meyer told the media that Fuentes is believed to be an illegal alien living in the Columbus area. The Columbus Dispatch and the IndyStar both reported that Fuentes is suspected to be an illegal alien.

The Dispatch reports:

During Wednesday’s hearing, Assistant Franklin County Prosecutor Dan Meyer requested Fuentes be held without bondHe said Fuentes is not believed to be in the country legally and there are questions about his identity. [Emphasis added]

The rape swept international headlines after Biden repeated the story twice during speeches at the White House. Biden cited the case as evidence that girls and women would have to travel out of red states to seek abortions following the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade last month.

“Ten years old. Raped. Six weeks pregnant. Already traumatized. Was forced to travel to another state,” Biden said. “Imagine being that little girl. Just — I’m serious — just imagine being that little girl.”

Despite Biden’s claims, Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost noted that although Ohio has hugely limited abortion across the state, its law allows for medical emergencies which include cases like the 10-year-old girl who was raped.

“She did not have to leave Ohio to find treatment,” Yost said.

Liberal group lands $171 million gov’t contract that could reach $1 billion to help illegal immigrants avoid deportation

Fox News exposes a contract with a liberal group that would help illegal aliens avoid deportation.

A left-wing nonprofit working to end mass incarceration landed a $171.7 million taxpayer-funded government contract that could potentially hit $1 billion to help unaccompanied minors avoid deportation, Fox News Digital has discovered.

The Vera Institute of Justice, a New York-based group that supports defunding police and views immigration enforcement agencies as a “threat” to civil liberties, was awarded a Health and Human Services-funded contract in March to provide legal assistance to unaccompanied minors, according to a federal database.

The arrangement lasts until March 2023 but can reach as high as $983 million if renewed until March 2027, the agreement shows. This appears to be the largest federal contract Vera has secured for immigration-related services for any single year dating back to the mid-2000s.

The lofty nine-figure contract came amid an escalating border crisis that saw more than 239,000 migrant encounters in May alone — a historic high. There were 14,699 encounters of unaccompanied minors in May, an increase from the 12,180 encountered in April and slightly higher than the 14,052 encountered in May 2021.

The concept of mutable sexuality contacts genetics, creates suicidal friction, and births several Schrödinger’s parts


Left-wing outlets insist that “transphobic” Senator Josh Hawley found himself “schooled” by a Berkeley law professor

Fox News summarizes the reporting by several news outlets on the exchange between Senator Josh Hawley and associate professor Khiara Bridges in the following way:

Progressive media sites promoted the viral clip of Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., and Berkeley Law Professor Khiara Bridges clashing over whether men can get pregnant Tuesday as an example of a liberal “schooling.”

During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Bridges testified on the harm that abortion bans could bring to “people with a capacity for pregnancy.” After using that term several times, Hawley asked whether she meant “women.” Bridges responded that “trans men and non-binary people” were also capable of pregnancy, leading Hawley to question whether abortion remained a “women’s rights issue.”

After continued questioning, Bridges accused Hawley of being “transphobic” and encouraging “violence.”

Please consider these salient points ignored by Fox News

These points might have some bearing on the overall discussion:

  • This overall hearing purportedly was held to discuss the affect of the Dobbs case (that is, how the Supreme Court’s decision that Roe came from a loom of whole cloth and, from a liberal perspective, received numerous accusations by abortion providers of causing problems within the field of women’s health).
  • The professor did not just mention “people with a capacity for pregnancy” several times — she mentioned that phrase five times before this exchange began.
  • Bridges’ response to Hawley’s question “Would that be ‘women?'” clearly opened the discussion of abortion (which previously had been shut off by the Left as something only to be discussed by those with a uterus) to males.
  • The reason that Bridges opened the discussion of abortion to men came through her outrage at Hawley’s failure to recognize the current Leftist concept of sexuality.
  • Thence, the Leftist concepts of sexuality and sanity can be seen to hold a number of similarities to the better-known paradox of Schrödinger’s cat.

A transcript of the exchange

Although Yahoo News provided the bulk of the transcript of the exchange, the first few interchanges came from the C-Span video included below the transcript.

Speaker Testimony
Hawley Professor Bridges, you said several times — you’ve used a phrase I want to make sure I understand what you mean by it: You’ve referred to “people with a capacity for pregnancy.” Would that be “women?”
Bridges Many women, cis women, have the capacity for pregnancy. Many cis women do not have the capacity for pregnancy. Um. There are also trans men who are capable of pregnancy as well as non-binary people who are capable of pregnancy.
Hawley So this isn’t really a women’s rights issue, it’s a–
Bridges We can recognize that this impacts women, while also recognizing that it impacts other groups. Those things are not mutually exclusive. Senator Hawley.
Hawley So your view is that the core of this right then is about what?
Bridges So I want to recognize that your line of questioning is transphobic and it opens up trans people to violence by not recognizing them.
Hawley Wow, you’re saying that I’m opening up people to violence by asking whether or not women are the folks who can have pregnancies?
Bridges So I’m, I want to note that one out of five transgender persons have attempted suicide. So I think it’s important–
Hawley Because of my line of questioning?
Bridges Because–
Hawley So we can’t talk about it?
Bridges Because denying that trans people exist and pretending not to know that they exist–
Hawley I’m denying that trans people exist by asking–
Bridges Are you?
Hawley –If you’re talking about–
Bridges Are you? Are you?
Hawley –About women–
Bridges Are you?
Hawley –Having pregnancies?
Bridges Do you believe that men can get pregnant?
Hawley No, I don’t think men can get pregnant.
Bridges So you are denying that trans people exist. Thank you.
Hawley And that leads to violence? Is this how you run your classroom? Are students allowed to question you?
Bridges Absolutely.
Hawley Or are they also treated like this where–
Bridges No, no, no, they’re allowed to question.
Hawley They’re told opening up people to violence by questioning?
Bridges We have a good time in my class. You should join.
Hawley I bet.
Bridges You might learn a lot.
Hawley Wow, I would learn a lot. I’ve learned a lot–
Bridges I know.
Hawley –Just in this exchange.
Bridges Absolutely.
Hawley Extraordinary.
Bridges Yep.

The quantum paradox of Schrödinger

As well-explained at Nature (primarily because I don’t have the time, devotion to this inane theory, a mind-reading capability, or the patience), Schrödinger presents this quantum paradox:

In the world’s most famous thought experiment, physicist Erwin Schrödinger described how a cat in a box could be in an uncertain predicament. The peculiar rules of quantum theory meant that it could be both dead and alive, until the box was opened and the cat’s state measured. Now, two physicists have devised a modern version of the paradox by replacing the cat with a physicist doing experiments — with shocking implications.

Quantum theory has a long history of thought experiments, and in most cases these are used to point to weaknesses in various interpretations of quantum mechanics. But the latest version, which involves multiple players, is unusual: it shows that if the standard interpretation of quantum mechanics is correct, then different experimenters can reach opposite conclusions about what the physicist in the box has measured. This means that quantum theory contradicts itself.

The conceptual experiment has been debated with gusto in physics circles for more than two years — and has left most researchers stumped, even in a field accustomed to weird concepts. “I think this is a whole new level of weirdness,” says Matthew Leifer, a theoretical physicist at Chapman University in Orange, California.

The authors, Daniela Frauchiger and Renato Renner of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich, posted their first version of the argument online in April 2016. The final paper appears in Nature Communications on 18 September1. (Frauchiger has now left academia.)

Weird world

Quantum mechanics underlies nearly all of modern physics, explaining everything from the structure of atoms to why magnets stick to each other. But its conceptual foundations continue to leave researchers grasping for answers. Its equations cannot predict the exact outcome of a measurement — for example, of the position of an electron — only the probabilities that it can yield particular values.

Quantum objects such as electrons therefore live in a cloud of uncertainty, mathematically encoded in a ‘wavefunction’ that changes shape smoothly, much like ordinary waves in the sea. But when a property such as an electron’s position is measured, it always yields one precise value (and yields the same value again if measured immediately after).

The most common way of understanding this was formulated in the 1920s by quantum-theory pioneers Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg, and is called the Copenhagen interpretation, after the city where Bohr lived. It says that the act of observing a quantum system makes the wavefunction ‘collapse’ from a spread-out curve to a single data point.

The Copenhagen interpretation left open the question of why different rules should apply to the quantum world of the atom and the classical world of laboratory measurements (and of everyday experience). But it was also reassuring: although quantum objects live in uncertain states, experimental observation happens in the classical realm and gives unambiguous results.

Now, Frauchiger and Renner are shaking physicists out of this comforting position. Their theoretical reasoning says that the basic Copenhagen picture — as well as other interpretations that share some of its basic assumptions — is not internally consistent.

What’s in the box?

Their scenario is considerably more involved than Schrödinger’s cat — proposed in 1935 — in which the feline lived in a box with a mechanism that would release a poison on the basis of a random occurrence, such as the decay of an atomic nucleus. In that case, the state of the cat was uncertain until the experimenter opened the box and checked it.

In 1967, the Hungarian physicist Eugene Wigner proposed a version of the paradox in which he replaced the cat and the poison with a physicist friend who lived inside a box with a measuring device that could return one of two results, such as a coin showing heads or tails. Does the wavefunction collapse when Wigner’s friend becomes aware of the result? One school of thought says that it does, suggesting that consciousness is outside the quantum realm. But if quantum mechanics applies to the physicist, then she should be in an uncertain state that combines both outcomes until Wigner opens the box.

Frauchiger and Renner have a yet more sophisticated version (see ‘New cats in town’). They have two Wigners, each doing an experiment on a physicist friend whom they keep in a box. One of the two friends (call her Alice) can toss a coin and — using her knowledge of quantum physics — prepare a quantum message to send to the other friend (call him Bob). Using his knowledge of quantum theory, Bob can detect Alice’s message and guess the result of her coin toss. When the two Wigners open their boxes, in some situations they can conclude with certainty which side the coin landed on, Renner says — but occasionally their conclusions are inconsistent. “One says, ‘I’m sure it’s tails,’ and the other one says, ‘I’m sure it’s heads,’” Renner says.

The experiment cannot be put into practice, because it would require the Wigners to measure all quantum properties of their friends, which includes reading their minds, points out theorist Lídia Del Rio, a colleague of Renner’s at ETH Zurich.

Yet it might be feasible to make two quantum computers play the parts of Alice and Bob: the logic of the argument requires only that they know the rules of physics and make decisions based on them, and in principle one can detect the complete quantum state of a quantum computer. (Quantum computers sophisticated enough to do this do not yet exist, Renner points out.)

Several things to note about Schrödinger’s paradox

We should take specific note regarding the following aspects of Schrödinger’s paradox that have specific application to the Leftist concepts that follow:

  • This paradox has no real-world equivalent. It cannot be repeated in your bedroom, at your office, or in any physical location.
  • This amounts to nothing but a thought experiment. Read the bullet above.
  • The rules of physics have no effect on the thought experiment. Read the two bullets above.
  • Thence, based the three bullets above and on the number of times that Marxism or any other Leftist concept has worked in the real world, Schrödinger’s paradox is the perfect medium for understanding mutable Leftist concepts like sexuality and sanity.

Schrödinger’s uterus

If we returned to the original reason for calling the hearing where Senator Hawley and associate professor Bridges had their exchange, we would find that the topic originally focused on abortion. Except that (in accordance with the Leftist talking points promoted across America) all of the males in the chamber would have been silenced because only those with a uterus could speak on abortion.

However, as mandated by Schrödinger’s uterus, we all have and don’t have said uterus.

Therefore, the discussion of abortion has paradoxically been opened to all (at least until the Left realizes that it has opened this discussion and b****-slaps itself to get its focus off of transgender ideology).

Schrödinger’s brain

In response to two questions (a question on a point of clarity on “people with a capacity for pregnancy” and a question on whether the hearing centered on women’s rights), Bridges quickly became unhinged. First, she accused Senator Hawley of promoting violence against the transgender community by just asking those two questions. Then, when probed on how questions cause violence against the transgender community, she jumped to a claim of self-violence (specifically, suicide) which she anecdotally linked to discussion of things tangential to transgenderism.

This exposes several weaknesses in the argument supporting transgenderism:

  • First, the ability to communicate stands as the primary quality (even over the ability to make tools) that makes us human. Therefore, to limit discussion on a topic due to its potential to cause purported “violence” to someone limits the whole of us.
  • To confuse violence and suicide in this discussion likely stands as a deliberate blurring of the lines and an ad hominem attack against anyone who doesn’t goose-step to the Bridges drum.
  • Transgenderism itself (until very recently) was recognized as a mental disorder of gender dysphoria. Therefore, why should one be surprised that a group that is no longer treated (but encouraged in their delusion and given often non-reversible treatments and surgeries) would become suicidal?
  • Probably not finally, but last among the points I will discuss, if a claim of violence is to be made, shouldn’t that claim be direct and material (not hearsay)?

    It seems that Bridges only exposes the weakness of her own contentions by going on a personal attack (“Are you? Are you? Are you? Are you?”).

By the by, I have to thank Bunkerville, American Family Radio, and other conservative outlets for beating this d*** drum until this concept came to me.

 

Biden sets himself apart from previous Democrat presidents


Obama was the Muslim-promoting president. Biden is the anti-Christian president

The U.S. State Department is looking for organizations that will help spread atheism and humanism throughout the globe

American Family News illustrates how Joe Biden has set his State Department to creating a state-supported church of atheism.

Specifically sought are organizations that will help form or strengthen godless networks, lobby foreign governments for the acceptance of atheism, and create ads in foreign countries touting the worldview.

Congressman Jim Banks (IN), head of the House Republican Study Committee, has penned a letter to Secretary of State Anthony Blinken demanding an explanation.

“The State Department under President Biden put out a competitive process to award grants of up to a half-million dollars to organizations who are committed to the practice of spreading atheism or humanism, and specifically in South and Central Asia or the Middle East and North Africa,” says Banks.

He says the State Department is using religious freedom as a cover for this unconstitutional government endorsement of religion. But given the Biden administration’s antipathy toward faith, he suspects there is a darker motive.

“I think this probably has something to do with efforts by this administration to weaken the faith systems and the institutions in these countries,” Banks submits.

Does this grow from Biden’s perception that the Church supports pro-life initiatives?

Has Dementia Joe decided to evangelize atheism and humanism throughout the world because the Church has taken up the mantle of supporting the most helpless among us (the unborn)?

Bill Clinton wanted abortion to be “safe, legal, and rare.” Biden wants to completely protect it

Biden signs executive order protecting abortion

Live Action reports how Joe Biden jumped to undemocratically “save” abortion by dictate rather than let the democratic process at the states take charge.

President Joe Biden has finally responded to the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade with an executive order protecting abortion, which is the intentional homicide of undelivered human beings.

Biden released a statement Friday morning announcing his intention to sign the order, while continuing to put pressure on Congress to codify Roe into federal law.

Under the order, access to abortion pills will be expanded, while strengthening enforcement of the Obama Administration’s birth control mandate, and organizing pro bono lawyers to defend anyone facing charges relating to abortion. Additionally, the order will provide $3 million in new funding for family planning organizations, provide leave for federal employees traveling for abortion, and protect access to abortion for female service members in the military.

He also has vowed to see Roe codified into law and appoint pro-abortion judges throughout the country to keep abortion protected.



According to CNN, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) will have to submit a report within 30 days outlining how they will put the order’s requirements into place. The order also creates an interagency task force between the HHS and the White House Gender Policy Council, and will include Attorney General Merrick Garland.

One would think that Biden would at least put a wetted finger to the wind

Rather than commit himself wholeheartedly to the pro-abortion cause, you would think that Catholic Joe would at least sample the electorate to find how much support remains for his abortion-across-all-nine-months approach.

 

Why do liberal arguments often build on a base of lies?


Violence in the name of “Jane’s Revenge”

The American Family Association outlines the violence perpetrated against crisis pregnancy centers and other conservative-leaning outlets.

Ever since the unprecedented leak of an early draft of the Dobbs decision from the Supreme Court which may overturn Roe v. Wade, the “shock troops of tolerance” have been busy interrupting church services. And they have done much destruction of crisis pregnancy centers.

They claim to be “pro-choice,” but choice involves options. And these people want to make sure women make only one choice – the choice of abortion. When there’s only one choice, then “pro-choice” is an oxymoron.

Since May 2, when the draft decision was leaked:

  • There have been numerous disruptions of church services, usually Catholic ones. However, even Joel Osteen’s church service was interrupted by topless promoters of abortion.
  • There have been illegal protests in front of the homes of conservative Supreme Court Justices to intimidate them to change their opinion.
  • There have been at least 60 attacks on crisis pregnancy centers, which are all funded by private donations to provide loving alternatives to abortion. This is becoming a regular occurrence.

Many of these attacks have been done through an ad hoc organization called “Jane’s Revenge.”

The name would imply revenge on behalf of “Jane Roe” from the 1973 Supreme Court pro-abortion decision, Roe v. Wade.

Jane’s Revenge declares open season on crisis pregnancy centers across the nation:

“From here forward, any anti-choice group who closes their doors, and stops operating will no longer be a target. But until you do, it’s open season, and we know where your operations are. The infrastructure of the enslavers will not survive. We will never stop, back down, slow down, or retreat.”

A friend of mine works in a crisis pregnancy center. She told me in an email over the weekend: “I worked in the Emergency Dept. as an RN for 25 years with police security, but I never dreamed that working at a pro-life clinic would be a high-risk job!”

And this damage is being done in the name of Jane Roe? As the record shows, Jane Roe’s identity was revealed in 1987, and her name was Norma McCorvey. It turns out McCorvey had not been raped (as claimed in the case). She had gotten pregnant from her boyfriend, and she just wanted an abortion.

ACLU attorney Sarah Weddington lied to her as she assured McCorvey she could get an abortion, but what Weddington really wanted was McCorvey’s participation in what became Roe v. Wade.

Then in the late 1990s, something amazing happened. Norma McCorvey made a profession of faith in Jesus Christ and came to oppose abortion. Thus, Roe came to agree with Wade. Henry Wade had been the District Attorney of Dallas County, and Roe v. Wade challenged Texas’s pro-life law.

Norma McCorvey wrote her story in her 1997 book, Won By Love (with co-author Gary Thomas). The subtitle of that book is “Jane Roe of Roe v. Wade Speaks Out for the Unborn as She Shares Her New Conviction for Life.”

When you see half-truths and other lies, why is the left usually behind it?

As with the testimony from Cassidy Hutchinson (who may be recounting exactly the items told to her incorrectly by people other than those who were there — still, now finds her testimony contradicted by those who were there), why do we always find liberals shaving the truth to prove their point?

Why rely on a framework of lies? Why tell America that the Constitution guarantees the right of abortion in the 14th Amendment’s mention of the word “liberty?” Why tell the court that Roe (McCovery) was raped?

Why, during the first few months of this year, did we hear nothing but “transitory” inflation from Democrats in office and the press despite our observation that inflation had risen to a 40-year high?

Fox News *still* hasn’t updated the hoax story about Trump assaulting Secret Service agents

Breitbart‘s John Nolte observed that Fox News has not (as of 1 July 2022) fixed the obvious contradictions in the Cassidy Hutchinson testimony.

The on-its-face ludicrous (more on this below) tale of former President Trump lunging at a steering wheel and assaulting a Secret Service agent remains on Fox News without an update about its debunking.

If Fox tries to sneak in and stealth-edit it, here’s a saved screenshot from late last night, hours and hours after the story was shown to be false.

So what we have here is Fox News continuing to spread an OBVIOUS hoax even AFTER it’s been debunked.

Fox is deliberately endorsing a blatant lie that was glaringly false from the moment it was spoken…

This Cassidy Hutchinson woman claimed she heard the “lunge” story third-hand from White House deputy chief of staff Tony Ornato, and now this same Tony Ornato says he never told her that story.

I’m no lawyer, but isn’t that perjury?

Isn’t that… newzzzz?

Moreover, this Hutchinson loon claimed she wrote a note everyone says she didn’t.

Talk about fruit of the poison tree.

Ah, but here’s oh-so fair and balanced Fox News… Here’s Fox News, the outlet that says it’s different from the rest of the media, still spreading an obvious lie, even AFTER it’s been debunked and the witness exposed as a total phony.

(Read at Breitbart how this the fakeness of the Fox News comes together)

Maybe the new Fox definition of “fair and balanced” is more like that of the rest of the main stream media’s: lies half the time and truth half the time

Of course, the main stream media’a standard would be to tell half-truths all of the time. That way, they can refuse to report on the Hunter Biden laptop until after the election and still claim journalistic integrity.

Washington state church vandalized. “Religion of hate” spray painted on church art

Breitbart lays out the situation of a Catholic church in Bellevue, Washington that found itself under attack by a 31-year-old radical.

Speaking to FOX 13, Father Gary Zender said that a small statue had also sustained damage during the alleged attack.

“When I try to look at the person and their wounds – that helps me to step back and say ‘I have some wounds too,’” Zender told the local news outlet. “So, there’s a human connection there, as well as a spiritual one.”

The damage penalty to the property could be calculated under the hate crime statute, according to Bellevue Police Captain Darryl McKinney.

“Obviously, there’s a lot going on in the world,” McKinney told FOX 13. “People are worked up about things. They’re upset – or, at least some people are – I think there are some emotions stirred up and we’re seeing people act how they normally wouldn’t.”

Yes, every good movement has more than a few bad apples

However, to quote an ancient middle-Eastern leader and poet:

Everyone has turned away, all have become corrupt,
there is no one who does good,
not even one.

Still, we have the grace of God.

 

Democrat prosecutorial indiscretion, Democrat lawlessness, and Democrat lies


Five Texas District Attorneys have committed to not prosecuting felony abortion cases

The Texas Tribune looked forward on 21 April 2022 and saw some of the problems that would explode onto the scene once the Dobbs case found resolution.

Texas has a “trigger” law on the books that would automatically make it a felony to “knowingly perform, induce or attempt an abortion” except to save the life of the pregnant person.

That law does not allow for the pregnant person to be prosecuted for having an abortion, but it would open up a whole world of legal questions that district attorneys, defense lawyers and medical providers would have to navigate.

“In that first, let’s say, five years of prosecution, how many mistakes get made along the way while the law is being developed?” asked Missy Owen, a North Carolina-based attorney and board member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. “And whose lives have to pay for it?”

Prosecutorial discretion

Many abortion rights advocates talk about the “two Americas” that would be created if the Supreme Court allows states to create their own abortion restrictions. About half of all states likely would ban abortion to some degree, according to the Guttmacher Institute.

But even within Texas, there may be two distinct realities. Five Texas district attorneys — from Dallas, Travis, Bexar, Nueces and Fort Bend counties — have publicly promised that they will not pursue abortion-related criminal charges if Roe v. Wade is overturned. Others are expected to quietly decline to take these cases.

(Read at the Texas Tribune to find how these Democrats would circumvent Texas law)

Looks like the Democrats have picked up a procedure that we should not have abandoned

If there are laws that you don’t like, just ignore them when you have the power. If you get empaneled on a jury and you don’t like some element of the law that gets addressed in the court (say, something involving gay “marriage”), then just ignore the law. Act like it does not exist.

AOC tries to incite people to “the streets” over the Dobbs decision

The Daily Caller points out how AOC tried to incite people to go to “the streets” over sending the issue of abortion back to the states.

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez showed up outside the Supreme Court to express her frustration with the Supreme Court’s decision Friday to overturn Roe v. Wade.

A video shared on Twitter shows Ocasio-Cortez chanting loudly that the Supreme Court’s 6-3 vote to overturn the landmark 1973 decision was “illegitimate” and that Americans should get “into the streets.”

One Twitter user questioned why the congresswoman was smiling in the video, as well as applauding, and said that her body language was “inconsistent” with her message.

(Read at the Daily Caller to find about the gems of wisdom from AOC)

Not only AOC, but Maxine Waters calls for violence

Furthermore, when the left calls for violence on items that should be matters of public debate, nobody in the main stream press calls them out. Not one article from ABC, CBS, NBC, or PBS can be found denouncing any leftist politician for calling for violence over the Dobbs decision.

A film exposes the lies behind Roe

The Christian Broadcasting Network tells of a film created to chronicle the lies behind the Roe versus Wade case.

The U.S. Supreme Court issued an earthquake ruling on June 24, 2022, overturning its 1973 decision that legalized abortion. The original ruling is still regarded as one of the country’s more controversial if not tragic events. And while there’s been endless debate about the decision, very little is known about the case behind it.

It turns out the history of Roe v. Wade is very different than what’s described in mainstream media. A 2021 movie called “Roe v. Wade” went behind the scenes, revealing how lies and deception helped influence the ultimate decision.   

Nick Loeb, the film’s director and writer, also plays the abortion doctor at the center of the plot to make America think it loved abortion. Loeb told CBN News, “I was surprised that no one really had made a movie about the most famous court case in American history.”

Were the Justices & America Manipulated?

Loeb plays abortion doctor Bernard Nathanson who, along with pro-abortion allies, manipulated information and lied through polls to help make the country believe abortion was more popular with Americans than it really was.

That may have helped the Supreme Court justices turn from an early almost-tie vote to an ultimate 7-to-2 ruling to legalize abortion nationwide.

Nathanson, as shown in the movie, eventually has a change of heart, complete with grief and guilt over aborting his own child and some 70,000 others.  Loeb can relate.

‘I Had Participated in the Killing of My Own Children’

“I grew up in a generation where we were told it was a clump of cells and a gob of goo when a woman got pregnant until the baby kicked,” Loeb told CBN News.

He continued, “I didn’t wake up one day and become pro-life. That happened over time from me dealing with abortions that I had been involved in…and the realization that I had participated in the killing of my own children.”

The writer/director/actor said he didn’t really set out to make a movie that could be labeled pro-Roe v. Wade or anti-Roe v. Wade or even faith-based.

“We tried not to be preachy. We tried to go down the middle of the road. We tried to just lay out the facts,” Loeb explained. That kind of balance was reflected in the movie-makers, with Loeb being pro-life but not so many of his actors.

(Read at the Christian Broadcasting Network about the actors and directors)

While this primarily can be a method of preaching to the choir on the lies from the other side, maybe it also can be a gentle way of introducing the truth to those unfamiliar with the pro-life side

While this topic remains hot, this film will probably only remain a tool for viewing by those on the conservative side. However, once things have cooled maybe this film might help family members on the other ideological side understand our side.

 

At least 18 pro-life pregnancy centers fire bombed and over 40 vandalized and calls from Democrats for more violence


Christian pregnancy center in Colorado vandalized and burned following Roe v. Wade reversal

The New York Post documents the firebombing of the pro-life pregnancy center in Colorado.

A Colorado Christian crisis center for pregnant women was vandalized and set on fire Saturday morning, a day after the US Supreme Court reversed federal protection of abortions.

Police responded to a fire at Life Choices in Longmont around 3:20 a.m., and found the building ablaze with covered with graffiti messages referencing the controversial overturning of Roe v. Wade, officials said.

“If abortions aren’t safe neither are you,” one message read, accompanied by the circled “A” anarchy symbol.

The saying has been written at dozens of pro-life centers since the court’s intent to overturn the 1973 ruling was leaked in May.

“Bans off our bodies,” was also painted onto the entrance walkway of the building while another anarchy symbol adorned its façade, according to pictures released by police.

Life Choices offers women alternatives to abortion as well as faith-based post-abortion counseling, according to its website.

(Read more at the New York Post on the damage)

Remember that, as of 16 June, no less than 17 pro-life pregnancy centers had been fire bombed

As previously blogged, seventeen pro-life pregnancy centers and a pro-life legislator have been firebombed by Antifa-affiliated “Jane’s Revenge.”

Add to that these two additional fire bombings.

Over 40 Attacks Targeted Pro-life Group Since Supreme Court Leak: Report

The Epoch Times comments on the greater than 40 attacks on pro-life groups since the Supreme Court leak.

More than 40 attacks against pro-life individuals and organizations have been recorded since the leak of a Supreme Court draft opinion indicating a potential overturn of Roe v. Wade, according to a report released on June 16.

The report, published by Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America, says the over 40 incidents that have occurred in recent weeks involve violence, vandalism, and intimidation.

“Every abortion is an act of violence—violence against the unborn child who is killed and violence against the mother who is wounded in one of the deepest ways possible,” Marjorie Dannenfelser, the group’s president, said in the statement accompanying the report.

“In contrast to that inherent violence, the vast network of pregnancy centers, maternity homes, and other organizations across America exist to peacefully and lovingly serve women and families,” it said.

‘Actions of Comrades’

The latest incidents detailed in the report include vandalizations in Hope Pregnancy Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on June 11. The office of the pro-life group had four windows smashed and vandalized with graffiti.

An online blog post dated June 12 from someone who claimed credit for the damage under the name of “Anti Hope Brigade” said they were “inspired by the actions of comrades” in Wisconsin, Colorado, New York, and a growing list of places, according to the report.

The sharp rise in attacks began in early May when a leaked draft opinion indicated that the Supreme Court is poised to strike down Roe v. Wade, the 1973 ruling concluding access to abortion is a constitutional right.

The institution noted Jane’s Revenge, which has taken credit for dozens of recent attacks on pregnancy centers across the nation, issued a new threat on June 15. The pro-abortion radicals, in the statement published on its website, declared “open season” on pro-life institutions that do not shut down.

SBA Pro-Life America urged the Biden administration to condemn the attacks.

I applaud SBA for getting Congressional support

I applaud Susan B. Anthony for being able to get Congressional leaders to call for the administration to take action on pro-abortion violence in the following ways:

Virginia pro-life pregnancy center vandalized hours after Roe ruling

The Washington Examiner reports that a Virginia pro-life pregnancy center received damage hours after the Dobbs versus Jackson case sent the matter of abortion back to the states.

Vandals attacked an anti-abortion pregnancy center in central Virginia early Saturday morning, hours after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 abortion case.

Surveillance footage released by the Lynchburg Police Department shows a group of four individuals walking away from the Blue Ridge Pregnancy Center at 1:30 a.m. Saturday. Lynchburg authorities also released photos showing multiple broken windows and graffiti on the outside of the building. The vandals left distinct messages with their graffiti, including “If abortion ain’t safe you ain’t safe!” and a tag reading “Jane’s Revenge,” a reference to the pro-abortion rights extremist group that has taken credit for similar attacks on pregnancy centers nationwide.

The Blue Ridge Pregnancy Center is a faith-based nonprofit crisis pregnancy group. It provides free and confidential services that include pregnancy tests, limited obstetrical ultrasound, parenting and life skills classes, post-abortion support, and counseling referrals. The center does not provide abortion services.

The Left proves itself to be the violent side

With the Left’s obsession on 6 January, we have been told that Conservatives are the violent ones. Again, with the riots of 2020 in mind, that has again been proven a lie.

Pro-Abortionists were mad, so they rioted and held Arizona legislators captive

The Daily Wire lays out the anarchy and criminal activities committed by pro-abortion activists.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety (AZDPS) released a statement Saturday, responding to the riotous behavior of pro-abortion activists at the state’s Capitol building Friday night.

The protests attracted between 7,000 and 8,000 people following the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade and began as a peaceful demonstration, according to AZDPS. However, the protest soon turned chaotic as rioters attempted to breach the state’s Capitol building and vandalized historical monuments.

“What began as a peaceful protest evolved into anarchical and criminal actions by masses of splinter groups. As groups realized the state legislature was in session, they attempted to breach the doors of the Arizona Senate and force their way into the building,” AZDPS wrote.

The rioters reportedly terrified state lawmakers who were still in the process of voting on legislation, The Daily Wire previously wrote.

“We are currently there being held hostage inside the Senate building due to members of the public trying to breach our security,” Arizona state Senator Kelly Townsend tweeted. “We smell teargas and the children of one of the members are in the office sobbing with fear. I expect a J24 committee to be created immediately.”

(Read at the Daily Wire about the reactions of those attacked)

Of course, this will not be reported outside of Arizona

Unlike the wall-to-wall coverage of the 6 January riots, this will not make air time.

If the Democrats really stood for law and order, then Democrats from Joe to the dog catcher in Harris County would condemn the attacks on pro-life centers.

Joe Biden (#NotMyPresident) has not shown himself to be anything but a socialist hack. He supports violence against his “enemies” even when those people are peaceful Americans who support the poorest of Americans.

Crowd gathers outside Thomas home to protest abortion ruling

The Washington Examiner explores the ways protesters have decided to protests the Dobbs decision.

Pro-abortion rights demonstrators descended on Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’s home in Virginia on Friday night to protest the high court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, which was announced hours earlier.

Protesters showed up with signs and began chanting. Members of the crowd called the justice’s wife, Ginni, an “insurrectionist,” likely referring to her correspondence supporting efforts to challenge the results of the 2020 election, and others yelled “Off with their d***s!” in response to the ruling. Clarence Thomas was one of the five justices to vote in support of overturning Roe, which ended the nationwide right to an abortion.

Roughly 30 protesters had already arrived outside the home as of 8 p.m., with a similar number of journalists. The group erupted in chants and songs, crying out “No privacy for us, no peace for you!” and “Ginni Thomas is an insurrectionist!”

One protester held a sign that read: “Thomas is a treasonous turd.”

The protest was organized online by the pro-abortion group Ruth Sent Us, which has protested regularly at justices’ homes since May when a draft of the opinion was leaked, signaling the court would overturn a nearly 50-year-old ruling that legalized abortion nationwide.

(Read how at the Washington Examiner how the political leanings of a Justice’s spouse affects unhinged libs)

Never mind that it is against the law to protest at the home of a justice, judge, baliff, or other court official

According to Cornell Law School, it is unlawful to picket or parade at the home of a justice, judge, juror, or any of the other court officials they list.

Whoever, with the intent of interfering with, obstructing, or impeding the administration of justice, or with the intent of influencing any judge, juror, witness, or court officer, in the discharge of his duty, pickets or parades in or near a building housing a court of the United States, or in or near a building or residence occupied or used by such judge, juror, witness, or court officer, or with such intent uses any sound-truck or similar device or resorts to any other demonstration in or near any such building or residence, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.

AOC calls for pro-abortion groups to escalate their protests

The Washington Free Beacon lists out calls by AOC to escalate protests against the abortion ruling.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) on Friday joined protesters outside the Supreme Court to call the institution “illegitimate” and urge supporters “into the streets” to fight for abortion, following a landmark opinion overturning Roe v. Wade.

Pro-life and pro-abortion activists gathered outside the Court in anticipation of a ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, in which a 6-3 majority voted to overturn Roe. Ocasio-Cortez took to a megaphone to voice her disapproval after the ruling was announced, spurring protesters on to “a generational fight.”

A recent Department of Homeland Security report warned about the rising likelihood of violence in the wake of the ruling. Ocasio-Cortez is one of 27 House Democrats who recently opposed a bill that bolstered security measures for the justices, following protests outside their homes. The legislation was held up in the House because Democrats had conditioned its passage on adding similar security for Court clerks.

Calls to pass the measure grew more urgent after an armed man was arrested outside the home of Justice Brett Kavanaugh earlier this month. The gunman later confessed to plans to assassinate the justice.

“The hell with the Supreme Court—we will defy them,” Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) also told protesters. “Women will be in control of their bodies.”

Case #1: We are ruled by lawyers

Ex-neo-Nazi robber to get ‘gender surgeries’ from U.S. Bureau of Prisons

The Daily Mail (out of the United Kingdom) reports that a robber and ex-neo-Nazi has used lawfare to force the U.S. Prison system to provide “gender affirming surgery.”

The U.S. Bureau of Prisons has fast-tracked ‘gender confirmation surgeries’ for a transgeder ex-neo-Nazi serving life in prison for two violent robberies after (Langan) filed a lawsuit against them for delaying (Langan’s) request. 

Donna Langan, born Peter, 63, was part of the Aryan Republican Army (ARA), a neo-Nazi group, and was convicted in 1997 to life in prison with an additional 35 years for two bank robberies where (Langan) used firearms and explosives, Fox News reported.  

Langan, who identifies as female, spent two decades in a male prison before being transferred to the Carswell Federal Medical Center women’s prison, in Fort Worth, Texas

In September 2021, Langan filed a complaint against the Bureau of Prisons (BOP), claiming (Langan) ‘experiences debilitating anguish as a result of severe and inadequately treated gender dysphoria.’

Just because someone finds themselves in a delusional state does not require me to participate in the delusion.

Sorry, but I will not call someone with an XY chromosome a woman. That takes an XX chromosome and Langan (pictured at the right) does not have that genetic makeup. Langan might have heels, long hair, and lipstick, but not that.

Case #2: Our rights are being stripped by politicians wanting to meet extremism in the middle

John Cornyn pledges to sell out America on amnesty after caving on gun control

Breitbart lays out the two most recent betrayals by never-conservative John Cornyn and his merry band of back stabbers. (Red text is mine.)

Cornyn - Idiot and RINOSen. John Cornyn (Rino-TX)  pledged on Tuesday to sell out the American people by trying to advance amnesty for illegal aliens after striking a deal on gun control.

After Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (Rino-KY) tapped Cornyn to negotiate a deal on gun control, he now promised to move forward on a deal on amnesty.

“First guns, now it’s immigration,” Cornyn told Sen. Alex Padilla (D-CA).

“That’s right, we’re going to do it,” said Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ). 

Andrew Surabian, a former Donald Trump administration official, said in reaction to Cornyn’s pledge for amesty, “From selling out on gun control to selling out on amnesty in light speed.”

Sens. Thom Tillis (Rino-NC) and Cornyn have continued to push for amnesty with the help of Democrat allies, including Sens. Padilla and Dick Durbin (D-IL), the Senate Democrat whip.

The National Review provides some details of the gun grab

The National Review provided a map of the landmines planted by Cornyn and the others who betrayed us.

Essentially, the bill would require NICS checks performed on purchasers who are under-21 to look for some additional information, including:

  • “criminal history repository or juvenile justice information”
  • “mental health adjudication records”
  • “local law enforcement agency”

That process, Cornyn’s office told me, would be “automated through NICS and done immediately by them.” If the purchaser is 21 or older, NICS would not include those items in its search. It is not currently clear how NICS would interact with all those different systems.

(Read ,more, including a link to the full text of the bill, at the National Review)

A list of those who betrayed our gun rights

Oh, by the way, the full list of those who betrayed the conservative cause are included in the following tweet (of course, adding all Democrats in the Senate to this list):

I only have a few questions for traitorous Cornyn or any of his slap-nut friends

These are the first few questions I would ask of Cornyn on this matter:

  • How are you going to access our medical records from our teenaged years? Are our medical records no longer private?
  • Since I have no criminal record, what sort of an accusation will prevent me from accessing my Second Amendment Rights?
  • Since the accusations result in a hearing where the accused does not get to face his or her accuser, what repercussions are there for people making false accusations?

Additionally, on topics related to this bill only tangentially, I would ask:

  • Since 175 people in Harris County alone over the past two years have been killed by felons released on bond (as opposed to the thirty or so killed by mass murderers state-wide during the same time period), what are you doing to protect from the greater threat?
  • Since you are doing this for political gain, how are you going to be re-elected without support from your home state?

Case #3: We have a Supreme Court that invents rather than interprets the Constitution

Sotomayor rips the more intelligent members of the Supreme Court for dismantling something not written into the Constitution

Far-Left Salon does its best to act like Sonya (Wise Latina) Sotomayor actually has a point when she complains that the Supreme Court has dismantled the “wall of separation between church and state.”

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor on Tuesday warned that the court’s right-wing majority had further eroded the nation’s bedrock laws separating church and government when it ruled that Maine must include religious schools in a state-run tuition program.

“Today, the court leads us to a place where separation of church and state becomes a constitutional violation,” wrote Sotomayor in the minority’s dissent of the 6-3 decision.

Sotomayor was joined by fellow liberal Justices Elena Kagan and Stephen Breyer to oppose the majority opinion in  Carson v. Makin, which centered on two families in Maine who wanted state taxpayers to pay for to send their children to attend private religious schools.

In Maine, where many rural communities do not have public high schools, towns must either contract with nearby public school districts so children can receive education there or pay tuition at a private “nonsectarian school in accordance with the First Amendment of the United States Constitution.”

However, what can we expect from the Left when, for almost 50 years, it created a right to abortion from the Fourteenth Amendment?

Considering the whole-cloth tailors and seamstresses that we find on the Supreme Court (who took the word “liberty” from the Fourteenth Amendment and turned it into the abortion of more than 63 million babies), how could we expect less?

Still, I would challenge Justice Sotomayor to find “separation of church and state” in the Constitution.

Additionally, since she is such a fan of the phrase “separation of church and state,” why doesn’t she go back to the letter by Jefferson and read it thoroughly. You see, Jefferson wrote that letter to assure the members of the Danbury (Connecticut) Baptist Association that the government would not encroach on the rights of Christians and that the First Amendment built a “wall of separation between church and state.”

Furthermore, if that is not clear enough, I would invite her to go to the man on the street and find which can be more easily understood:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof

Or whatever portion of this has to do with abortion:

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

 

Pushing America toward the Apocalypse


With no mention of America in the Bible, is this part of how America goes off the world stage

With inflation at historic highs, Biden is still trying to make it worse

The Washington Examiner points out how Joe Biden has continually worked at digging the grave for himself and America deeper.

All he had to do was end the COVID-19 lockdowns and let the economy recover on its own. Instead, President Joe Biden spent trillions trying to “transform” the country, and now, everyone, especially the nation’s poorest, is paying the price for his hubris.

The Labor Department reported Friday that inflation rose to 8.6% in the 12 months ending in May, its highest level in more than 40 years. Virtually no sector of the economy was left untouched. Gas is up 48.7% from a year ago, electricity 12%, groceries 11.9%, and rent 5.9%.

These price increases are not, as White House chief of staff Ron Klain once claimed, “high-class problems.” These are not discretionary spending items. Working-class families can skip vacations, but they still need gas to get to work. They need electricity to heat and cool their homes. They need to eat. They need a roof over their heads.

Democrats may point out that unemployment is low, and that is a good thing. Wages are also rising, and that is good too. But, unfortunately, prices are rising faster than wages, leaving working people in a worse economic position overall. Under Biden’s leadership, the average person has seen his or her real wages fall by 3% over the past year.

The cause of this record-high inflation is no secret: Biden and his big spending policies are clearly to blame.

Former President Barack Obama’s director of the National Economic Council Larry Summers warned right from the start that Biden’s $2 trillion COVID stimulus was way too large and would cause inflation. But Democrats ignored him and passed it anyway without a single Republican vote.

Then, Democrats tried to make it worse!

Even with inflation already rising, House Democrats passed another $2.2 trillion spending bill last November that, once all the budgetary gimmicks were removed, would really have dumped another $5 trillion into the economy. Fortunately for those working-class families most vulnerable to inflation, Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) refused to go along, and Biden’s so-called Build Back Better agenda died in the Senate.

But Biden still refuses to stop pouring spending fuel on the inflation fire. His administration is reportedly scheduled to cancel $10,000 worth of higher education debt for millions of overwhelmingly wealthy borrowers later this summer. Not only would this debt amnesty be no different than sending millions of $10,000 checks into an economy already overheating with demand, but these checks would also disproportionately go to the wealthiest families. According to data compiled by the Brookings Institution, the top 40% of income earners owe over two-thirds of all student debt, and the richest 20% owe 35%.

Since this article, Biden has proposed other inflation-inducing measures

Since this article, Biden has proposed issuing gasoline cards to offset part of the high cost of gasoline. I guess that he doesn’t understand how his printing all of those COVID relief checks caused part of this in the first place.

Maybe his lack of cognition also stands behind his inaction on allowing American drillers to drill on American land.

Other liberal “news” outlets say Biden has considered sending rebate cards for the same purpose. The one difference here seems only to be semantics. Still, the government would be creating money from thin air, distributing it, and contributing to the crisis of inflation without allowing the market to address a shortage in our system (our need to pump, refine, and distribute our own oil products).

One-world government enabled by a lack of leadership from America

Although we have myriad references to the Klaus Schwab statement that “there is no God,” some other statements by Klaus Schwab — as recorded by Heart Publications direct us to various moves that benefit international powers and show how the possibility of one-world government has been enhanced by the lack of leadership in the Oval Office.

In his 2019 book ‘Covid 19 – the Great Reset’, the WEF’s Chairman, Prof Klaus Schwab, said: “This pandemic represents a rare but narrow opportunity to reflect, reimagine and reset our world.”

He stated that things will never return to normal after the pandemic, but that the world should work for a new order which will “only come about through some form of effective global governance.”

More than just resetting, Joe Biden is weakening America by starving our energy supply system and drastically affecting our supply system

Just a few weeks ago, Biden called the gasoline price hikes part of an “incredible transition” (supposedly to more expensive electricity and electric cars). Additionally, Dementia Joe said some time ago that there would be food shortages. However, Biden has not offered a solution to either of these two crises. (Not that this comes as a surprise, since Joe did not really get in on the baby formula crisis until the problem was well developed by what seems to be his own incompetence.)

Therefore, this lends credence to the notion that the whole thing might be orchestrated. However, it seems to be orchestrated by an idiot who cannot think to the end of his four-Pinocchio nose.

Biden the dictator, case #1

Biden’s frequent use of Defense Production Act raises questions and criticism

The Washington Times points out in a 10 June 2022 article how Biden’s repeated use of the Defense Production Act has shown his willingness to overstep his authority.

President Biden’s use of the Defense Production Act to promote the renewable energy industry, increase vaccine production and resolve a national shortage of baby formula has angered critics who say he has overstepped his authority and is increasingly relying on a power that should be reserved for emergencies.

Republicans and other critics accuse Mr. Biden of using the act for his own political salvation. They say the president’s policies are partly to blame for record-high energy prices and other crises, including the formula shortage.

“He’s using it excessively, he’s using it in a fashion that’s not going to help, and he’s using it to fix crises that he created,” Rep. Chris Stewart, Utah Republican, told The Washington Times.

The law, enacted in 1950 at the start of the Korean War, gives the president “a broad set of authorities to influence domestic industry in the interest of national defense,” according to the Congressional Research Service.

The Biden administration invoked the DPA on June 6 “to accelerate the domestic production of clean energy.”

The move will facilitate the production of solar panels and other energy-saving equipment such as heat pumps and insulation. The administration said these measures are needed to lower costs and reduce the nation’s demand for fossil fuels.

In May, Mr. Biden announced two DPA authorizations to help replenish the supply of infant formula. Much of the product had vanished from store shelves after a major recall and prolonged factory closure caused in part by a slow-acting Food and Drug Administration.

Weeks earlier, Mr. Biden invoked the DPA to speed up domestic production of electric vehicle batteries, potentially giving companies access to hundreds of millions of dollars to mine for the needed minerals.

The president cited the need to ensure “a robust, resilient, sustainable and environmentally responsible domestic industrial base” for the nation’s clean energy economy.

(continued)

Mr. Biden began using the DPA two months into his presidency. He invoked the act to bolster supplies to produce Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine and to increase the inventory of at-home COVID-19 tests and personal protective equipment, such as gloves and masks.

When Trump used the DPA to manufacture ventilators, people questioned his ability to force industry to build in a crisis

During the COVID crisis, main stream news outlets complained about Trump forcing GM to make ventilators. However, no such questions seem to have been raided for the three times Biden used the same law.

Biden the dictator, case #2

While the press ignores it, Biden has become the dictatorial president by executive order

Additionally, an executive action on abortion would circumvent constitutional order

The Washington Examiner delves into the ways that a Biden executive order on abortion would circumvent our constitutional republic.

President Joe Biden told Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday night that he would consider issuing executive orders on abortion should the Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade. He also predicted the decision would cause Republicans to be voted out of office in November.

“It’s clear that if, in fact, the decision comes down the way it does, and these states impose the limitations they’re talking about, it’s going to cause a mini revolution, and they’re going to vote a lot of these folks out of office,” Biden said .

Earlier this week, Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Patty Murray, along with over 20 other Democratic senators, sent a letter to Biden requesting executive action on abortion.

“Americans across the nation and at every level of government must stand up against this unprecedented assault on women and their right to make decisions about their own bodies and lives,” the letter says. “But as President of the United States, you have the unique power to marshal the resources of the entire federal government to respond.”

The letter’s six core recommendations include “increasing access to medication abortion, providing resources for individuals seeking abortion care in other states,” “establishing a reproductive health ombudsman at the Department of Health and Humans Services,” “enforcing ‘Free Choice of Provider’ requirements,” “clarifying protections for sensitive health and location data,” and “using federal property and resources to increase access to abortion.”

Along with the recommendations, the letter urges Biden to “issue an executive order instructing the leaders of every federal agency to submit their plans to protect the right to an abortion within 30 days.”

The letter came just weeks after the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would have nationally codified an abortion right, failed to gain even a simple majority in the Senate.

(continued)

Democrats can’t win any other way on the issue. While they point to polls showing the public doesn’t want to see Roe overturned, those polls fail to capture true public opinion. Most people believethere should be some restrictions on abortion in the second and third trimesters. Yet many have absolutely no idea that overturning Roe would only return the issue to the states, not ban abortion entirely. California could continue its radical pursuit of becoming an abortion sanctuary state, and Oklahoma could proceed to implement its abortion ban.

But placing the decision in the hands of state governments closer to the people is unacceptable to the proponents of child sacrifice. They want it protected and guaranteed by federal law.

Despite the continued insistence of Democrats, there is no constitutional right to an abortion, as Justice Samuel Alito’s leaked majority opinion carefully delineated.

If Democrats want this enshrined in federal law, then do it in Congress

Democrats have the House, the Senate, and the Presidency. If they want this so badly, let them get it done in Congress and send it to the Oval Office for a signature.

Biden has proven himself the executive order dictator

According to Ballotopedia, Biden has the following track record on executive orders:

As of June 17, 2022, President Joe Biden (D) had signed 91 executive orders, 82 presidential memoranda, 279 proclamations, and 54 notices.

Each of these presidential documents is different in authority and implementation. Executive orders are directives written by the president to officials within the executive branch requiring them to take or stop some action related to policy or management. They are numbered, published in the Federal Register, and cite the authority by which the president is making the order.[1][2]

Presidential memoranda also include instructions directed at executive officials, but they are neither numbered nor have the same publication requirements. The Office of Management and Budget is also not required to issue a budgetary impact statement on the subject of the memoranda.[3]

In his 2014 book, By Order of the President: The Use and Abuse of Executive Direct Action, Phillip J. Cooper, a professor of public administration at Portland State University, wrote, “As a practical matter, the memorandum is now being used as the equivalent of an executive order, but without meeting the legal requirements for an executive order.”[4]

Proclamations are a third type of executive directive that typically relate to private individuals or ceremonial events, such as holidays and commemorations.[3][5]

If you go behind the numbers, Biden issued 77 executive orders in 2021 (over Trump’s average of 55 per year)

Although the press has not made an issue of Biden’s use of executive order to circumvent the legislative process, Biden did use it 77 times in 2021. Additionally, he has used it 14 times and threatened to use it another three.

 

Seventeen pregnancy help centers and a pro-life legislator get fire bombed


The left in the media and the Biden regime remain silent on this rampant crime

The Daily Mail reports through a 14 June 2022 article how 17 pregnancy centers and a pro-life Republican have been fire bombed by Antifa-affiliated “Jane’s Revenge,” but nothing has come out of the American press or the Biden regime.

REVEALED: 17 anti-abortion centers have been FIREBOMBED since last month’s leaked Supreme Court draft as video shows moment office of pro-life Washington GOP is torched

A pro-life Republican politician had his office firebombed on Monday, the latest in a spate of attacks against pregnancy centers and pro-life officials in the wake of a bombshell leaked Supreme court draft opinion that would overturn Roe v Wade.

Andrew Barkis, a Republican representing the Olympia in the Washington state legislature, had his Olympia office attacked around 4 a.m.

Monday’s attack was the 17th so far on a pregnancy support clinic or an office of a pro-life figure.

Pro-abortion Jane’s Revenge promises more violence now that “30 days of mercy” have expired

The Post Millennial reports in a 15 June 2022 article on the threats of the Left’s secret fire-bombing group “Jane’s Revenge.”

Pro-abortion militants Jane’s Revenge has declared that their 30 days of patience and mercy have come to an end. “Your thirty days expired yesterday,” they state in an open letter proffered on June 15. “We offered an honourable way out. You could have walked away. Now the leash is off. And we will make it as hard as possible for your campaign of oppression to continue.”

“We have demonstrated in the past month how easy and fun it is to attack. We are versatile, we are mercurial, and we answer to no one but ourselves,” and then they stated their threats.

“We promised to take increasingly drastic measures against oppressive infrastructures. Rest assured that we will, and those measures may not come in the form of something so easily cleaned up as fire and graffiti. Sometimes you will see what we do, and you will know that it is us.

“Sometimes you will think you merely are unlucky, because you cannot see the ways which we interfere in your affairs. But your pointless attempts to control others, and make life more difficult, will not be met passively. Eventually your insurance companies, and your financial backers will realize you are a bad investment.”

The group takes responsibility for recent attacks on pregnancy and pro-life centers in “Madison WI, Ft. Collins CO, Reisertown MA, Olympia WA, Des Moines IA, Lynwood WA, Washington DC, Ashville NCBuffalo NY, Hollywood FL, Vancouver WA, Frederick MA, Denton TX, Gresham OR, Eugene OR, Portland OR.”

“You have seen that we are real, and that we are not merely pushing empty words,” they state, noting that in addition to the visible attacks mentioned, they “work in countless locations invisibly.”

“You know that we are serious.” Much of their graffiti reads “If abortions aren’t safe, neither are you.”

Jane’s Revenge shared their first communique on May 8, stating that they would be planning a “Night of Rage” to meet the Supreme Court’s decision on Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health, a ruling which would spell an end to the precedent of the federal legalization of abortion. A draft decision was leaked in April, and Chief Justice Roberts confirmed its veracity. That draft has sparked protests and activist demonstrations across the country, including in front of the homes of those Supreme Court Justices who signed the majority opinion.

The Biden Justice Department’s Shameful Pandering to Bomb-Throwing Rioters

The National Review points out how shamefully inadequate the Biden regime has proven itself in providing equal justice under the law. Instead, Biden panders to bomb-throwing rioters (and, of course, their lawyers) and lies to to public as he tries to paint himself as a center-of-the-road Democrat.

The foundational duty of government is to maintain public safety and order, without which neither liberty nor prosperity is possible. The dramatic story of the summer of 2020 was the outbreak of riots and protests following the murder of George Floyd. More than a dozen people were killed and a billion or more dollars in damages were caused, including the destruction of many businesses. This cried out for a vigorous response.

Instead, apparently viewing the cause as a righteous one, Democratic prosecutors at the federal, state, and local levels have been scandalously soft on the many crimes committed in the course of those riots and protests. Large numbers of offenders were let off scot-free by progressive prosecutors; even those whose crimes caused death have been given sentences no longer than ten years. In so doing, the progressive district attorneys and the Justice Department have imperiled public safety in our cities and undermined public confidence in the even-handed administration of law. It is unsurprising that urban crime and violence have spiked in many cities after the law failed to restore order or punish criminality.

The Biden administration has just added to this shameful spectacle by retroactively reducing the plea-bargained sentence in one of the most high-profile of those crimes, in which two white-shoe lawyers in Brooklyn threw a Molotov cocktail into a police car.

Colinford Mattis and Urooj Rahman were well-compensated attorneys in their early thirties when they joined the protesting mob in May 2020. Rahman was caught on tape throwing the firebomb into an unoccupied police car, and Mattis was arrested with more such improvised explosives in his car and was videotaped trying to hand them out to others. These are gravely serious crimes, more so than those committed by all but a tiny handful (at most) of the people charged in connection with January 6. An unapologetic Rahman told reporters later, “The only way they hear us is through violence.”

Mattis and Rahman pleaded guilty last year to one count of possessing and making an explosive device, a charge carrying up to ten years in prison. Both of them will quite properly be disbarred. Federal prosecutors sought to charge them with still more serious offenses for distribution but, in a shocking reversal, have now agreed to recommend a prison sentence of 18 to 24 months for charges carrying a maximum of five years. Even for a Justice Department that has bent over backwards to be lenient towards left-wing protesters while throwing the book at right-wing protesters, a retreat from a previous plea agreement is a dramatic display of favoritism for left-wing political violence.

Scouring the Internet reveals that Biden has not condemned the attempted assassination of Brett Kavanaugh

We have endured the January 6 Commission hearings being televised. We have heard a number of statements by Dementia Joe where he repeated the any of a number of lies he likes to repeat regarding the riot.

However, like the George Floyd riots of 2018-2020, we have not heard a peep from Dementia Joe regarding the firebombing of pregnancy assistance centers (places poor women go to get free medical care, diapers, daycare, baby formula, and similar help).

Why is Joe standing up for criminals and not for moms and dads?

Although the National Review wants to throw the 6 January “rioters” under the bus, I would like to compare apples to apples

Since we know that two fire bombers got a prison sentence of 18 to 24 months for charges carrying a maximum of five years, let’s look at the 6 January charges and sentences (I have bolded in red the instances where protesting got a harsher punishment than fire bombing):

In reviewing these charges and sentences, I don’t see attempted murder or arson

In Houston, a 5-time-released-by-Democrat-judges-on-bond felon executed a 9-year-old girl and attempted to kill her mother. Of course, that made the girl the 175th victim of the Democrat felony bond reform.

Over a year ago, I remember blogging on how leftist activist Holly Zoller transported Antifa weapons across state lines. Nothing significant has happened to her.

The “open letter” (noted in the article above) by Jane’s Revenge will probably be just as ignored as the assassination attempt on Kavanaugh.

So, if Democrats can be so lenient with murderous felons, why can’t Biden or any Democrat below him be forgiving of Republican protesters who hurt nobody, killed nobody, burnt no buildings, and flattened no property?
