CNN implies it’s not news when they say “Republicans pounce”


CNN18 sets the stage for politicizing Democrat corruption by labeling it

“GOP targets the Bidens”

Consider also the message displayed across the bottom of the video

Whether the message was included by CNN18 or YouTube, I am not completely sure.

However, of several things I can be certain. I can be sure that social media companies (Google, Facebook, and Twitter) worked to bury the Hunter Biden story (and, thus, sway the election). I also remember how the members of the coalition between never-Trumpers and Democrats bragged about the way they “save the election” and took Trump down.

Therefore, as long as there is an opposition to Democrats, I expect that this blatant bending of the truth and eventual censure of conservatives will continue.

The Left of the Left sees downscaling


I have to admit that I never considered any subscription to the paid liberal lecture service called Star Trek and other Paramont shows

Since the new version of Star Trek made its chops by establishing itself as the home of same-sex kissing and off-screen promotion of alternative lifestyles, I decided I could find my science fiction fix through a source that I did not have to pay to receive.

Furthermore, since CBS, NBC, and ABC  follow along in the same spirit – putting out drama and comedy that denegrates the right, I don’t see much reason to subscribing to much of anything. While I have to recognize that Paramont consists of CBS (the network of Dan Rather and the faked letter),  Showtime (of so many left-leaning issues that I don’t want to weigh down the blog), and other groups.

MTV News to shut down as Paramount announces layoffs

The Washington Post announces layoffs due to surely the “Robust Biden economy” their news division always reports to the people.

MTV News, once home to the hippest anchor desk of Generation X, will shut down after 36 years, according to multiple reports.

Its parent company, Paramount Global, told staff Tuesday that layoffs would affect 25 percent of employees at Showtime, MTV Entertainment Studios and Paramount Media Networks, according to a memo cited by the Hollywood Reporter. The cuts will greatly affect MTV News, which will shutter completely.

Paramount and MTV did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Although it hasn’t been a major news organization in decades, MTV News joins many other outlets that have faced severe reductions or shutdowns in recent months, including CNN, BuzzFeed News and Vice Media.

The popular music channel launched its news operation in the late 1980s, and for a time found popularity with Generation X and older millennials tired of traditional anchors. “We know the latest, hippest music to put something with. That’s our strength,” Dave Sirulnick, the news operation’s then-27-year-old director, told the New York Times during the 1992 presidential race.

Two years later, the Hollywood Reporter wrote, President Bill Clinton appeared on MTV’s “Enough Is Enough,” hosted by former Rolling Stone writer Kurt Loder, in an attempt to reach younger audiences.

The channel brought news and analysis to the music generation for years afterward, reporting on Kurt Cobain’s suicide and the deaths of Tupac Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G.

“In [its] prime, MTV News was one of the most influential programs in existence,” podcaster Brandon “Jinx” Jenkins tweeted after news of the layoffs broke Tuesday.

But the years took their toll. After three decades of helping oversee MTV’s news and documentary operation, Variety reported, Sirulnick left the company amid a wave of cost-cutting several years ago.

Staffers with MTV News took to Twitter on Tuesday to mourn the organization’s final blow.

“This is a very sad day for a lot of friends and colleagues. Many great people lost their jobs,” tweeted Josh Horowitz, who has been the face of MTV’s movie coverage.

Maybe if the overall company had not insulted so many potential customers, things might be different

While Paramont did not get a Bud Light moment where it found the spotlight by associating itself with a far-left cause, it seems to have lost audience due to not providing what its audience wants. Whether that came through a slow bleed caused by Biden’s economy, I don’t know.

Cancel culture observed from differing sides


Clarence Thomas predicted cancel culture long before it came for him

The Washington Examiner explains how Clarence Thomas foresaw the development of the cancel culture even before it started to come after him.

Critics of Justice Clarence Thomas are working overtime to cancel him. That’s no surprise. A longtime thorn in the side of liberal causes, Thomas has evoked a particular hatred from the proponents of cancel culture since he put them on notice over a decade ago.

Thomas not only blasted their unseemly tactics, but he tried to do something about them. In a concurring opinion in the 2010 case Citizens United v. FEC, Thomas called for stronger privacy protections to fight this toxic trend.

The core of Citizens United was not about privacy at all. The case primarily concerned a nonprofit group’s ability to promote and distribute a documentary criticizing Hillary Clinton. But the Supreme Court also reaffirmed by an 8-1 margin its past decisions allowing certain invasions of privacy when citizens contribute to a campaign for election. The lone holdout was Thomas.

Terms such as “cancel culture” and “doxxing” were still years away from catching on, but Thomas described something almost identical. He wrote of political activists using new internet tools to wreak havoc on the lives and careers of ordinary people. He told the stories of everyday people who had lost their jobs, reputations, and even their sense of safety after supporting a California ballot proposition on traditional marriage in 2008.

“Some opponents of Proposition 8 compiled this information and created Web sites with maps showing the locations of homes or businesses of Proposition 8 supporters,” Thomas  warned . “Many supporters (or their customers) suffered property damage, or threats of physical violence or death, as a result. … The success of such intimidation tactics has apparently spawned a cottage industry that uses forcibly disclosed donor information to pre-empt citizens’ exercise of their First Amendment rights.”

The risk of harassment and retaliation may be even higher today, thanks to our hyperpolarized political climate. A majority of people hold political views they  do not feel comfortable  sharing and  believe  that our growing culture of silence and intimidation is a problem.

Fortunately, our history offers solutions. In 1958, the Supreme Court ruled that the NAACP could conceal its members’ names and home addresses from state officials in Alabama. The court  noted  that disclosing this sensitive personal information would result in NAACP members suffering “economic reprisal, loss of employment, threat of physical coercion, and other manifestations of public hostility.”

That precedent was reinforced and strengthened in subsequent cases. The court struck down laws forcing political pamphlets to list who sponsored them or public school teachers to report what organizations they belonged to. Causes on the Right and the Left benefited from the ability to meet and speak with one another in private.

Just as when Senator Joe Biden led the opposition to the confirmation of Justice Thomas, this is a high tech lynching

Democrats, in large part, do not wander far from their racist past. It was Democrat Senator Joe Biden that eulogized Democrat Senator Byrd (formerly of the KKK).

Furthermore, it was Joe Biden who led the opposition to the confirmation of Clarence Thomas, stooping so low as to recruit Anita Hill along with her “pubic hair on the Coke can” story (despite the fact that she had followed Thomas from legal job to legal job).

The current investigations into trips sponsored by other people (something that all of the justices have taken part in, including RBG) stands as more of the same.

Liberal-leaning USA Today tries to swipe conservatives with the “cancel culture” brush

USA Today tries to explain how calling out cancel culture makes conservatives into hypocrites due to the way we have reacted to their liberal campaigns.

When Republican lawmakers and talking heads speak these days, this is what I hear:

“I HATE liberal cancel culture and believe in absolute free speech! I would also like to ban, do away with or silence Disney, NPR, Bud Light, the FBI and CIA, this big pile of books over here, M&Ms, Mr. Potatohead, college professors, any Democratic lawmaker I don’t want to hear speak, “wokeness,” any mention of diversity, drag shows, people who defend drag shows, people who defend people who defend drag shows, any mention whatsoever of the existence of LGBTQ people, this other big pile of books over here, the entire Department of Education, PBS and Oreos.”

It all makes perfect sense if you have too much time on your hands and too few functioning brain cells to process the meaning of the word “hypocrisy.” And it confirms that today’s mainstream Republican Party — the party of Donald Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene and former Fox News host Tucker Carlson — has become the party of cancel culture, a bubble-dwelling collection of right-wing caricatures who speak an intolerant and often conspiratorial language most regular Americans, and particularly most younger Americans, can’t understand.

And it’s happening all over the country.

DeSantis would welcome Twitter to Florida, but not any woke employees

Consider a recent comment from DeSantis when he was asked about the possibility of Elon Musk relocating Twitter’s headquarters to Florida: “You know, I know Elon Musk, and what I would tell him is like, ‘Ok, if you’re going to move Twitter to Florida, are you bringing woke employees to Florida or are you bringing just your people?’ If it’s just his people then it may be good.”

So the “woke” are unwelcome. People who disagree with DeSantis’ anti-woke stance — whatever that happens to be, since it changes from day to day — are unwelcome.

Conservatives need to follow the same playbook as liberals; therefore, they should expect more

In order to at least get on close-to-equal footing with the liberals, a number of conservative organizations and individuals have come to understand that we need to incorporate some of the tactics of the left. Therefore, Rules for Radicals will get applied to both sides.

Expect a mega-whine from the liberal press when they realize that they will get subjected to things they have been dumping on conservatives.

Conservatives have a habit of playing by the rules: passing laws and boycotting products

Up to this date, conservatives have been passing laws and using the market to punish those who put unreasonable constraints on conservatives. If the “woke unwelcome” really had any teeth to it (like the times that a small liberal group goes to Google and gets Parler deplatformed or one person complains to Facebook and gets a group banned), then they might start to scream. But it will not happen and they will not say anything beyond this little self-promoting complaint.

I cannot promise that a Democrat will oppose cancel culture, but this one opposes one facet of it

“I don’t think it’s fair:” Robert F. Kennedy Jr. voices opposition to transgenders in women’s sports

Breitbart opens a perspective into Democrat presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Junior and his stance on biological males competing as transgenders in women’s sports.

Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has come out in opposition to transgender athletes participating in women’s sports, a departure from the Biden administration.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who will be opposing Biden in the 2024 primary, told CNN on CNN on Saturday that “biological males” threaten women’s sports.

“I am against people participating in women’s sports who are biologically male,” Kennedy said. “I think women who have worked too hard to develop women’s sports over the past 30 years I watched it happen and I don’t think that’s fair.”

Kennedy said his opposition to trans athletes in women’s sports represents another area where he and Biden “differ really dramatically.” The politician also recently came out in opposition to cancel culture because his wife, actress Cheryl Hines, allegedly lost jobs for supporting his candidacy.

President Biden has been a fierce supporter of transgenders in women’s sports. As Breitbart News reported, the Biden administration’s Education Department has been moving to block schools that receive federal funding from “categorically” banning biological males from girls’ sports.

In its proposed rule, the Department of Education said it would “establish that policies violate Title IX when they categorically ban transgender students from participating on sports teams consistent with their gender identity just because of who they are.” However, the proposed rule also says that it will recognize “in some instances, particularly in competitive high school and college athletic environments, some schools may adopt policies that limit transgender students’ participation.”

So, we will see if a sane Democrat can stand up to a Democrat who wants to make men eligible for women’s rights

This may be worth watching.

Tucker Carlson Out At Fox News Channel


A story that makes no sense: Tucker Carlson Out At Fox News Channel

Why would the #1 cable news company fire its #1 host?

The Daily Wire brings out the bare minimum for a story which seems to consist of only the bare minimum (so far).

Tucker Carlson, Fox News Channel’s biggest prime time star, has left the cable news giant.

“FOX News Media and Tucker Carlson have agreed to part ways,” Fox News said in statement. “We thank him for his service to the network as a host and prior to that as a contributor.”

The network said Carlson has already hosted his last episode of “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“Mr. Carlson’s last program was Friday April 21st” the statement continued. “Fox News Tonight will air live at 8 PM/ET starting this evening as an interim show helmed by rotating FOX News personalities until a new host is named.

Carlson was almost always at the top of the ratings in prime time, drawing a massive audience that often dwarfed several of his competitors combined. As The Daily Wire previously reported, Carlson’s show in reruns often eclipsed the audience of original programming at other networks.

A source told The Daily Wire Carlson’s staff was blindsided by the news and only learned late Monday morning when members received an email from the prime time star.

So is this how Biden gets back into the White House — by silencing the major voices?

Has Fox just self-neutered itself as part of the cowardly Dominion settlement? Ot was this the action of a nework convinced that it should provide equity, not excellence, in news reporting?

If so, then what liberal outlet should we sue for their suppressing the Hunter laptop story? Should PBS or CBS be the first?

Isn’t a call for the silencing of Tucker Carlson a call for violence?

Since we know that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said “I genuinely want to know why Tucker Carlson is allowed/paid to engage in clear, targeted, libelous harassment that endangers people and drives so many violent threats that people have to fundraise for their own safety.” — doesn’t it seem that she might be pushing for violence against him?

Do we have a two-tier system of justice?

We have another question that begs an answer

Why have we not jailed Hunter Biden for lying on a gun registration form?

Just the News explored the questioning of Representative Tom Tiffany as he looked into the motives of our government not applying gun laws equally.

GOP Rep. Tom Tiffany on Wednesday asked a leader of the advocacy group Everytown for Gun Safety in a House hearing why first son Hunter Biden has not been prosecuted for apparently lying on his 2018 application to buy a gun, rankling those in attendance.

“Why hasn’t Hunter Biden been prosecuted for the crime that he committed?” the Wisconsin lawmaker asked Rob Wilcox, a senior policy director for the group at the hearing titled,” ATF’s Assault on the Second Amendment: When is Enough Enough?”

“I’m not aware of the facts of that case and can’t comment on it,” responded Wilcox, who according to his LinkedIn profile has a law degree.

In a video on social media of the exchange, a murmur of voices can then be heard during the exchange, which is followed by one person, seemingly on the House committee, saying Tiffany’s question is “totally irrelevant” to the hearing.

Another can be heard saying, “This is not a court of law.”

Tiffany then asks, “Who do we talk to to see why this case is not being prosecuted?”

He then referred to Hunter Biden, President Biden’s son, having been discharged from the Navy in 2014 after testing positive for cocaine, buying the gun in 2018 without disclosing on the application unlawful use of drugs, and writing in a recent autobiography about his addiction.

“He said very clearly in his book that he used drugs,” Tiffany continued.


The congressman appeared to laugh off the effort and said, “I understand why you do not want Mr. Wilcox to answer that question because there’s a dual system of justice in America that’s what’s going on right now. And everybody’s talking about it across America. There’s two standards of justice that are going on.”

From banking systems to ballot distribution systems in Democrat-ruled areas, there are two-tiered systems

It seems that just about everything that the Democrats have touched has resulted in a two-tiered system. Whether it is justice (as shown in this post), economic power (as shown in Biden’s rescue of Silicon Valley and Signature banks), distribution of ballots (where Harris County ballots were denied to 121 Republican polling places), the keeping of a free press (where those who buck the system get labelled “so-called-journalists“)or distribution of goods, the Democrats have a lock down on the system.


One piece of goofy news from the progressives and one piece of encouraging news from Central Texas

Progressives have a new minimum wage goal: $20 and up

Politico originally published the following article with the above heading and thereby worked to prove their dedication to subverting our capitalist system.

An intraparty fight has broken out in New York over the state’s minimum wage laws and how to get more money to the lowest-paid workers without hurting businesses, portending similar skirmishes across the country in the coming years.

The debate is rekindling divisions among Democrats in Albany, pitting liberal lawmakers against their more centrist colleagues and highlighting fissures that have emerged in Democratic strongholds elsewhere, particularly in areas with some of the country’s highest costs of living.

Moderate Gov. Kathy Hochul — still bruised by an unflattering election performance and losing a judicial standoff with lawmakers — this year proposed pegging the state’s minimum wage to inflation, while capping year-over-year increases to 3 percent or less. The state already requires a minimum wage of $15 per hour in and around New York City and $14.20 upstate.

The Legislature last week symbolically rejected Hochul’s plan for not going far enough, raising the stakes of negotiations over the state budget due by April.

Do they not see a portion of what got us into the current mess?

While the greater portion of the blame for the current inflation falls on the oversupply of money (especially in government programs handing out checks to citizens to stay home during the mandated COVID lockdowns), a portion of the inflation comes with insisting that low-skill jobs receive wages more commensurate to at least mid-level experience.

Then again (as the song goes), “something for nothing” has always been an opportunity for sin. 

A 72-hour revival at Baylor leads to 20+ baptisms in one night: “a compelling invitation to know Jesus”

The Christian Broadcasting Network reports that Baylor has experienced a 72-hour revival that lead to over 20 baptisms in one night.

The flames of revival are being felt again on the campus of Baylor University in Waco, Texas where students participated this week in 72 hours of continuous prayer and worship, leading to the baptisms of 20 people Wednesday night. 

What some have referred to as a potential new Great Awakening in U.S. history started on the campus of Asbury University in Wilmore, Kentucky in February, where thousands of Christians gathered for two weeks of Spirit-led worship, prayer, and repentance. Since then, the outpouring has spread around the country, especially among young people. 

Baylor’s Office of Spiritual Life in partnership with multiple campus ministries and local churches, hosted FM72, a gathering of college students for 72 hours of continuous prayer March 19-22, on Fountain Mall.

The theme for this year’s event was “Lord, teach us to pray” (Luke 11:1).

Greg Gordon, the founder of tweeted a video of Baylor students praying during the event, writing: “72 hours of prayer & worship in the heart of campus on Baylor University. 20 water baptized last night. The hunger for God is palpable in this younger generation. ‘I believe we are on the edge of a great move of God.’ – John Bevere”

Let all who feel called lift up areas that they see open for such revival

If you know of an area that hurts enough and might be open to the message of Christ, gather and pray.


The Left provides good news with a whine

Is this a bad thing?

The New York Times whines, “Congressional gridlock brought on by far-right Republicans now seems more likely to lead to government shutdowns.”

The New York Times whines and tries to spin a government that spends less as a bad or even an evil thing.

More brinkmanship

The House speaker elections last week turned a typically routine government procedure into a dramatic affair. They also exposed a major vulnerability in Congress: A small segment of lawmakers can stop the process of basic governance to obtain what it wants, with potentially big ramifications for the country.

In the speaker fight, the immediate consequences were relatively small. A Republican speaker, Kevin McCarthy, is leading a majority-Republican House.

More critical is how Republicans got there. McCarthy made concessions that will weaken his power, make it easier for lawmakers to oust him and give the right-wing rank-and-file greater input in legislation and in lawmakers’ assignments to committees, where Congress does much of its work.

The graver consequences will unfold months from now if the ultraconservatives who prolonged the speaker selection again withhold their votes until they have their way on looming spending bills. Congress must pass such legislation to keep the government open and avoid economic calamity. If deadlines for these bills come and go without a resolution, the government could be forced to shut down or, worse, default on its debt obligations, likely triggering a financial crisis. (More on that later.)

The right flank has already connected its opposition to McCarthy to such spending bills. In speeches during the four-day speaker battle, far-right Republicans cited a $1.7 trillion spending bill Congress passed last month to argue that establishment figures, including McCarthy, have failed to reduce government spending. Among the concessions that ultraconservatives drew from McCarthy was a promise that any increase on the country’s debt limit, a congressionally set cap on the federal debt, will be paired with spending cuts.

Some hard-liners have been clear that they would take drastic action again to have their way on spending. “Is he willing to shut the government down rather than raise the debt ceiling? That’s a nonnegotiable item,” said Representative Ralph Norman, a Republican critic of McCarthy who ultimately voted for him.

Deliberate gridlock

The ultraconservatives have said that one of their main goals is to shrink the size of government. “If you don’t stop spending money that we don’t have to fund the bureaucracy that is undermining the American people, we cannot win,” said Representative Chip Roy, a Republican who voted against McCarthy in 11 ballots.

One way to achieve this goal is by pushing Congress toward inaction. Consider some of the assurances the holdout Republicans received from McCarthy: more time to read and debate legislation, as well as to propose unlimited changes to it.

In theory, these changes might sound like common sense, since legislators should, ideally, be taking time to understand and finalize bills. But in practice, these kinds of allowances have slowed Congress’s work, if not halted it altogether, by giving lawmakers more chances to stand in the way of any kind of legislation.

This roadblock is especially likely in a closely divided Congress. Since House Republicans have a slim majority of 222 votes out of 435, they must rely on their right-wing faction to reach a majority in any vote (absent unlikely support from Democrats). Last week, that faction showed it will wield its leverage.

“It’s all about the ability — empowering us to stop the machine in this town from doing what it does,” Roy said.

Coming deadlines

If the ultraconservatives use these tactics in future legislative debates, Congress could miss deadlines to keep the government open and avoid a financial crisis.

Among the looming fights is one over the debt limit. If the government ever reaches this limit, it can no longer borrow money to pay off its debts, potentially forcing a default. That could cause serious damage to the global financial system, which relies on U.S. Treasuries as a safe investment.

The government is expected to hit the current debt limit in late summer. Republicans have already suggested that they will try to use negotiations over raising it to draw spending concessions from Senate Democrats and the Biden administration, a tactic that conservatives used during Barack Obama’s presidency. But Democrats have said that they will not negotiate over the debt limit this time.

If both sides stick to their word, the government could be on track for the most treacherous debt-limit debate since 2011, my colleague Jim Tankersley reported. That year, Obama and a new Republican House majority nearly defaulted on the nation’s debt before reaching a deal.

If this were a balanced review from a nonpartisan publication, this might be welcome

If the people at this paper were in any way balanced in their views, this news would be more acceptable. However, because they report for Democrats and only for the benefit of liberal policies (which continually ebb and flow), we can easily ignore this pabulum.

To prove my point, search the electronic pages of this paper for “ultra-liberals” or any term that discredits the theory of global warming (also known now as climate change). If you can find such within the past 10 years, I would be surprised.

On the other hand, I do believe that our economy might benefit from a reduction of deficit government spending and a suspension of a number of government programs. However, the problem with reducing that spending and suspending those programs with the current uneducated Democrat population and Democrat press remains at this: these events are like night breezes to the sleeping. They go unnoticed.

Not a whine, but a largely-ignored battle call

GOP rebels need to take the win

The Wall Street Journal produced a mirror-image article that noted the positives that may come from the stand-off between the two factions within the GOP.

And it makes it much harder for the House to tax and spend. It imposes a “cut go” rule — requiring any mandatory spending increases be offset with equal or greater mandatory spending cuts. A three-fifths supermajority vote will be required for tax increases. It revives what’s known as the “Holman rule,” allowing appropriations bills effectively to defund the salaries of specific executive-branch officials or specific programs. It also requires each committee to submit an oversight plan that lays out what action it intends to take on unauthorized or duplicative programs.

These changes will produce the first functioning House in years, even as they take the hand of spenders. Take the win!

Where is the outrage, Democrats

The last time I checked with Andy Kahan’s site prior to the election, there were 172 people murdered in Harris County by felons released on bail by Democrat judges

A few months before the midterms, I blogged on the 172 Harris County victims of felons released on bail by Democrat judges.

Unsurprisingly, a number of others (including people who formed Political Action Committees (PACs)) and even a few main stream media sources (who published back-page, bottom-of-the-fold articles) came to notice.

The Houston Comical Chronicle even noticed the bullseye painted on the backs of Democrat catch-and-release judges

The Houston Comical Chronicle even pulled their heads out of their liberal holes to observe how victim families (including a number of historially-faithful Democrats) had banded together to stand against the catch-and-release Democrat judges.

Family members of slain residents gathered with three Republican Harris County constables outside of Commissioners Court Tuesday to drum up support for conservative judicial candidates and blast Democratic judges who they said are “soft on crime.” 

The speakers, affiliated with the Stop Houston Murders PAC, blamed Democratic judges for rising homicide rates in Harris County at the beginning of the pandemic — a trend which played out similarly across the country. Homicide rates have fallen by 13 percent this year compared to the same point in 2021, according to data from the Harris County Office of County Administration.

“Last year, my brother was killed by criminals who were released from the revolving courthouse doors that Harris County Democratic judges have created,” said Aimee Castillo, speaking about her brother, Joshua Sandoval, who was killed during an attempted robbery in 2021, allegedly by a man released after posting a $5,000 bond on an evading arrest charge.

“Yesterday, the polls opened for early voting. The current soft-on-crime judges do not see a problem with the current catch-and-release system. Do not let your vote go to waste,” Castillo said. 

State District Judge Jason Luong, who set Sandoval’s bail in the evading arrest case, lost his Democratic primary runoff in March. 

The Stop Houston Murders PAC has raised nearly $2 million to support Republican judicial candidates, including substantial contributions from Richard Weekley, a major donor to Alexandra del Moral Mealer’s campaign for county judge.

It was within the comments a Bunkerville where I got prompted to this post

Due to a comment by Peter3NJ at Bunkerville, the point of “Where is the outrage” came to center stage.

Hence, I started looking to the articles that had only occupied the periphery of my blogging mind.

Therefore, the next few articles came to mind regarding the death, resurrection, and murder of decency in Harris County’s courts.

Murder suspect becomes wanted fugitive after million-dollar bond is substantially lowered and he gets freed

Houston Fox affiliate KRIV reports on the murder suspect released after his bond got substantially reduced — only to become a fugitive from the law.

The District Attorney’s Office asked the court to deny Michael Richardson bond stating he’s a danger to the future safety of the community. 

Still Richardson got bond, but then failed to show back up to court.

Since 1999, Richardson has been in and out of county jails and prisons.

“He has at least seven felony convictions,” said Andy Kahan with Crime Stoppers. “He just finished serving a 2-year stint for felon in possession of a weapon in TDCJ.”

Richardson was out of jail on bond for a new charge of felon in possession of a weapon when police say he shot and killed 53-year-old Gregory Wiltz on January 26, 2021.

It happened on Delaware at Fidelity on the east end. Richardson allegedly shot Wiltz to death while he sat in his vehicle.

Wiltz was popular store owner.

“Who evidently everybody knew, he was called a beloved figure in the neighborhood,” Kahan said.

The good news is that this felon subsequently got picked up by ICE

In an update of this same story, KRIV told us that Richardson got picked up and detained by ICE (even though he is not an illegal alien).

After our story aired, we discovered Michael Richardson is being held at an ICE facility in Conroe.
It’s not clear yet why federal authorities are detaining him.

Odd how doing what turns out to be right is done by hook-or-crook during the Biden regime.

Speaking of odd things: why release the suspected murderer of a rap artist when so much points away from it?

Since Democrats seem so intent on worshipping celebrity, why do we find Democrat judges considering the release of felons (even those accused of murder)?

Why? Because Democrats have not suffered enough to stop their idiocy and start voting other-than-Democrat.

Bond set at $2 million for man suspected of killing rap artist “Takeoff”

Aptly-named Democrat site Revolt opens up on the bond set for the man caught on camera holding a rifle in one hand and a wine bottle in another while shooting unarmed rapper “Takeoff.”

The man suspected of killing Takeoff last month in Houston made his first appearance in court on Friday (Dec. 2).

Patrick Xavier Clark, 33, was arrested by Houston police Thursday (Dec. 1) evening and has since been charged with murder. His arrest marks the second authorities have made in the case. Cameron Joshua, 22, was previously arrested on two counts of felony possession of a firearm. Joshua was supposedly at the gathering but is believed to have no connection to the actual shooting of Takeoff.

According to KTRK-TV, who obtained court documents, the evidence that led to Clark’s arrest includes video footage, license plate information from the car in which he left the scene, and fingerprints collected from a wine bottle he was seen holding.

It was also noted that the suspected gunman’s bond was set at $2 million and that he may have planned to skip town. Additionally, documents showed he purchased two plane tickets to Mexico and applied for an expedited passport. During his arrest, he was in possession of the passport and a large amount of cash. “So, we believe that he had plans or has plans to flee the jurisdiction if released on bond,” the judge said. Clark is currently being held in the Harris County Jail and is expected to return to court on Monday (Dec. 5).

Surprise, bond was reduced by half for this guy

Houston NBC affiliate KPRC reports that bond was reduced by half for the suspected murder of “Takeoff.”

Bond has been lowered for Patrick Xavier Clark, the 33-year-old man charged in the murder of Migos rapper Takeoff, Judge Josh Hill ordered Wednesday.

Clark is accused in the Nov. 1 fatal shooting of the Atlanta rapper, whose real name was Kirsnick Kari Ball, and was arrested a month later.

Clark’s initial bond was set at $2,000,000 but his legal team argued that amount was excessive. They filed a motion Tuesday asking for the bond to be reduced to $100,000. That request was declined; however, the new bond has been reduced to $1,000,000. One of the conditions of the order requires Clark to wear a GPS monitor that can be monitored in real time by the court and law enforcement.

The motion, which was filed by “attorneys on record” Letitia D. Quinones and Carl A. Moore, lays out a number of issues they would like to be taken into consideration.

Clark was identified by authorities as the triggerman who fired the fatal shots outside a downtown Houston bowling alley that claimed the life of Takeoff, who was an innocent bystander. The victim was part of the Grammy-winning group, which also includes family members Quavo and Offset. According to, the megastar’s net worth was an estimated $26 million at the time of his death at the age of 28.

Money is one of the key issues noted in the reduction request.

According to the motion filed by Clark’s attorneys, Census data shows the accused killer’s family lives in a county where the median income is $65,000, therefore they can’t afford to pay bonding agencies the required $200,000 down payment.

The motion outlines, according to data, “it would take four years of income for the average person to raise the 10% cash deposit required to post bond as it is presently set.”

The motion states, due to this reason, the “applicant requests that bond be set at the reasonable amount of $100,000, which is comparable to other defendants similarly situated in Harris County.”

When Clark was taken into custody on Dec. 2, authorities found a passport, a Mexican itinerary and large amount of cash, which led them to believe he was possibly planning to flee the country. His attorneys said that was not the case.

Maybe this will be the case that breaks a number of Democrat backs.

But then, maybe not.


A comparison of the Right and Left


  1. After a month of recounts, Lauren Boebert officially wins her reelection bid

The Daily Wire laid out Representative Boebert’s dekayed win against her Democrat foe.

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) won her bid for reelection after a tight race decided by roughly 550 votes, a recount confirmed on Monday.

The final results in Colorado’s Congressional District 3 showed the incumbent received 50.06% of the votes, while her Democratic rival, Adam Frisch, received 49.89%. Tallies showed Boebert with 163,839 votes following a net loss of three, and Frisch with 163,293 votes after a net gain of one.

The initial results had been within Colorado’s margin for a mandatory recount, which is at or less than 0.5% difference between the top two candidates. But Frisch, a former Aspen City Council member, already conceded defeat last month, and Boebert declared victory.

“We have won this race,” Boebert said at the time. “With this victory and with Republicans in control of the House of Representatives we can focus on the issues that actually matter most, including getting inflation under control, increasing our domestic energy supply, securing our southern border and being a strong check on the White House.”

So the people on the Right count their wins

Part of our current problem has been that the districts have been so tightly gerrymandered and the Democrats have learned to use ballot harvesting where it is legal (as it is in Georgia and California).

  1. A conservative publisher interviews Maxine Waters concerning the questioning of a Democrat mega-donor

The Washington Examiner reports on the aeemingly arranged arrest of Bankman-Fried by interviewing the soon-to-be out-of-power Democrats on the House Financial Services Committee.

Former FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried will not testify in front of a House committee on Tuesday after he was arrested in the Bahamas on Monday, according to the chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee.

Chairwoman Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) confirmed the news in a statement Monday night, claiming she was surprised to hear of his arrest but that the committee would continue to try and get answers on the collapse of the FTX cryptoexchange through FTX’s current CEO John Ray III during the hearing.

“I am surprised to hear that Sam Bankman-Fried was arrested in the Bahamas at the direction of the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York. It’s about time the process to bring Mr. Bankman-Fried to justice has begun,” Waters said in a statement. “Although Mr. Bankman-Fried must be held accountable, the American public deserves to hear directly from Mr. Bankman-Fried about the actions that have harmed over one million people, and wiped out the hard-earned life savings of so many. The public has been waiting eagerly to get these answers under oath before Congress, and the timing of this arrest denies the public this opportunity.”

Waters added that Bankman-Fried’s lawyers confirmed that the crypto mogul was planning to testify on Tuesday, before his arrest. Testimony from Bankman-Fried was also being sought by the Senate Banking Committee. However, the former CEO refused to testify in front of the Senate committee, senators said Monday.

Bankman-Fried’s arrest was first reported by the attorney general of the Bahamas and confirmed by the U.S. attorney from the southern district of New York based on a sealed indictment.

The indictment is expected to be unsealed Tuesday morning, and the crypto mogul is expected to be charged with “wire fraud, wire fraud conspiracy, securities fraud, securities fraud conspiracy and money laundering,” according to the New York Times.

Why would the Washington Examiner interview Republicans who go along to get along?

Why would the realists at this conservative publisher go to the conservative side when effective liberals like Mitch McConnell arrange for a filibuster-proof majority for the Respect for Marriage (the bill that kills our individual free speech rights to not bow to gay marriage)?

Likewise, why would conservatives trust in House Republicans who joined the lame-duck Democrat majority to stab conservatives in the back?

  1. Musk reveals pedophilic statement in Roth thesis: Yoel Roth suggested giving under-18-year-olds access to gay hook-up app Grindr

The Daily Mail relates Musk’s quotes of Yoel Roth’s thesis in a way that seems to make Roth the victim.

Twitter’s former censor has been forced to flee the $1.1m Bay Area mansion he shares with his boyfriend after Elon Musk shared part of his thesis which suggested letting children access gay hook-up app Grindr.

Yoel Roth, 34, and his partner Nicholas Madsen, 44, moved out of their two-bed, two-bath property in El Cerrito over fears for their safety, after receiving a torrent of threats, the Washington Post reported. 

Musk tweeted: ‘Looks like Yoel is in favor of letting children being able to access adult internet services in his PhD thesis.’

He also shared a screenshot of part of the document.

Roth’s thesis, written in 2016 while he was at the University of Pennsylvania, included the claim that many under-18s access gay hook-up app Grindr, despite being too young to do so.

However, those who conspire with the FBI and conspire to corrupt our children are not the victims

Nobody forced Yoel to make the statement he did in his thesis.

By contrast, while the FBI may have pressured the social media giants to help Biden and hurt Trump, the social media giants were like all of us who find ourselves in a moral dilemma. We never have to do evil.

Most importantly, pointing out that evil has occurred does not always in itself constitute evil. In fact, in my opinion, Musk currently fits the bill of a hero.


  1. Never focusing on themselves, the Biden regime calls out Marjorie Taylor Greene comments on 6 January 2021 riot

The Washington Examiner points out how the Biden regime just cannot allow another narrative than their own on the 6 January 2021 riot.

The White House called out firebrand Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) on Monday, saying her comments about an armed Jan. 6 riot that would have succeeded were antithetical to American values.

Greene made the comments, which she insists were sarcastic, at Sunday night’s New York Young Republican Club Gala, saying, “If Steve Bannon and I had organized that, we would have won. Not to mention, it would’ve been armed.”

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre decried those comments during Monday afternoon’s press briefing.

“This is what is coming from a member of Congress,” said Jean-Pierre, who briefly called her “Majority” Taylor Greene. “What’s more, she said it to a group that lashed out against condemning Holocaust denial. They were giving her an award.”

The congresswoman was decrying those who accused her of giving “insurrection tours” and helping plan Jan. 6 even though she “couldn’t even find the bathroom in the Capitol” due to being a new member of the House in early 2021. She then said that if she organized it, things would have been different.

“See, that’s the whole joke, isn’t it?” Greene said. “They say that whole thing was planned, and I’m like, are you kidding me? A bunch of conservatives, Second Amendment supporters, went in the Capitol without guns, and they think we organized that? I don’t think so.”

Greene said in her own Monday statement that Democrats were “trying to weaponize a sarcastic joke.”

The White House did not take it that way.

As I recently mentioned, Biden has no room to complain about anything gun-related

With Biden’s release of the “Merchant of Death” into the mix of the Ukrainian war, Joe Biden has no reason to complain about any action or comment regarding guns.

  1. Were Democrats focusing on potential embarresment to them when they allowed Democrat mega-donor Bankman-Fried to be arrested hours before facing questions from Congress?

Brietbart reports on the arrest of Sam Bankman-Fried and his unwillingness to testify while under arrest.

Democrat Mega-donor and FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried was arrested in the Bahamas on Monday, just hours before he was scheduled to testify in front of the House Financial Services Committee on Tuesday.

Bankman-Fried was arrested after U.S. authorities filed criminal charges against him, U.S. Attorneys confirmed.

“Earlier this evening, Bahamian authorities arrested Samuel Bankman-Fried at the request of the U.S. Government, based on a sealed indictment filed by the SDNY,” United States Attorney Damian Williams said. “We expect to move to unseal the indictment in the morning and will have more to say at that time.”

Could it be that Democrats arranged for the arrest of Bankman-Fried?

Anyone who has watched the empty prosecution of Trump and his affiliates will know that the Southern District of New York remains as a hotbed of Democrat activists in lawyer suits.

  1. Biden invites drag queen who performs for children to attend “Respect for Marriage Act” signing

Breitbart exposes the fact that the drag queen that Biden invited to the signing of the Respect for Marriage bill performed for children.

President Joe Biden invited a drag queen who performs for children to the White House on Tuesday to witness the signing of the “Respect for Marriage Act,” which enshrines same-sex marriage into law.

Drag queen activist Marti Cummings celebrated the invite on Twitter, and though he keeps his account private, the Libs of TikTok account shared Cummings’ status.

“To be a non binary drag artist invited to the White House is something I never imagined would happen. Thank you President & Dr. Biden for inviting me to this historic bill signing. Grateful doesn’t begin to express the emotions I feel,” Cummings tweeted while sharing a screenshot of the White House invite.

This is more proof that the Biden regime does not want to convince, but to program

Since Biden has decided from the beginning to:

  • Deny the opposition a platform for debate (through FBI collusion with the social media companies)
  • Endoctrinate the uninformed (through Drag Queen story hours and the like)
  • Playing with and stretching the rules (as shown by the need for the repeated recounts)

News that shows the Biden regime cannot quit from fail mode

The Biden regime launches an “Environmental Justice” office

The Washington Free Beacon reveals the Biden regime’s launch of its “Environmental Justice” office.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on Saturday launched a new office that will be focused on the needs of minority communities overburdened by pollution and oversee the delivery of $3 billion in environmental justice grants created by the recent passage of new climate legislation.

EPA Administrator Michael Regan announced the creation of the Office of Environmental Justice and External Civil Rights, which will be staffed by 200 EPA employees and led by a not-yet-announced Senate-confirmed assistant administrator.

He launched the new office at an event in Warren County, North Carolina, which was the site of protests 40 years ago that is regarded as the birthplace of the environmental justice movement.

“With the launch of a new national program office, we are embedding environmental justice and civil rights into the DNA of EPA and ensuring that people who’ve struggled to have their concerns addressed see action to solve the problems they’ve been facing for generations,” Regan said in a statement.

It was the latest move by the Biden administration to prioritize environmental justice in its policymaking. The Justice Department in May announced the launch of a new office to help low-income areas and communities of color battle the disproportionate impact of air and water pollution.

President Joe Biden has often cited protecting poor and minority communities from industrial pollution as a top priority and has pledged that 40% of federal clean energy investments will be channeled to the cause.

If Joe cannot get his eyes onto the real target (the economy), he always has the press to cover for him

It seems that, if bumbling Joe cannot do anything to improve the economy (or at least take steps toward doing that), he only has the main stream press to cover for him. Hopefully the alternative press will be able to pull back the curtain (as it has with these articles and the ones that find their ways into conservative blogs like Bunkerville, Not of this World, and others).

News that obviously untrustworthy due to the history of lies within Facebook

Meta says it disables the Russian and Chinese propaganda permeating Facebook

The Los Angeles Times blindly parrots the claims by Meta (formerly Facebook) as it claims to clean up its act prior to the 2022 mid-term elections.

A sprawling disinformation network originating in Russia sought to use hundreds of fake social media accounts and dozens of sham news websites to spread the Kremlin’s talking points about the invasion of Ukraine, Facebook parent company Meta said Tuesday.

The company, which also owns Instagram, said it identified and disabled the operation before it was able to gain a large audience. Nonetheless, Facebook said it was the largest and most complex Russian propaganda effort that it has found since the invasion began in February.

The operation involved more than 60 websites created to mimic legitimate news sites including the Guardian newspaper in Britain and Germany’s Der Spiegel. Instead of the actual news reported by those outlets, the fake sites contained links to Russian propaganda and disinformation about Ukraine. More than 1,600 fake Facebook accounts were used to spread the propaganda to audiences in Germany, Italy, France, Britain and Ukraine.

The findings highlighted both the promise of social media companies to police their sites and the peril that disinformation continues to pose.

“Video: False Staging in Bucha Revealed!” claimed one of the fake news stories, which blamed Ukraine for the slaughter of hundreds of Ukrainians in a town occupied by the Russians.

The fake social media accounts were then used to spread links to the fake news stories and other pro-Russian posts and videos on Facebook and Instagram, as well as platforms including Telegram and Twitter. The network was active throughout the summer.

“On a few occasions, the operation’s content was amplified by the official Facebook pages of Russian embassies in Europe and Asia,” said David Agranovich, Meta’s director of threat disruption. “I think this is probably the largest and most complex Russian-origin operation that we’ve disrupted since the beginning of the war in Ukraine earlier this year.”

The network’s activities were first noticed by investigative reporters in Germany. When Meta began its investigation, it found that many of the fake accounts had already been removed by Facebook’s automated systems. Thousands of people were following the network’s Facebook pages when they were deactivated earlier this year.


Researchers at Meta Platforms, which is based in Menlo Park, also exposed a much smaller network that originated in China and attempted to spread divisive political content in the U.S.

News that reveals the deception inherent to Facebook

Facebook spied on private messages of Americans who questioned the 2020 election

The New York Post tells how Facebook dug into private messages that centered on rejection of the 2020 election.

Facebook has been spying on the private messages and data of American users and reporting them to the FBI if they express anti-government or anti-authority sentiments — or question the 2020 election — according to sources within the Department of Justice.

Under the FBI collaboration operation, somebody at Facebook red-flagged these supposedly subversive private messages over the past 19 months and transmitted them in redacted form to the domestic terrorism operational unit at FBI headquarters in Washington, DC, without a subpoena.

“It was done outside the legal process and without probable cause,” alleged one of the sources, who spoke on condition of ­anonymity.

“Facebook provides the FBI with private conversations which are protected by the First Amendment without any subpoena.”

These private messages then have been farmed out as “leads” to FBI field offices around the country, which subsequently requested subpoenas from the partner US Attorney’s Office in their district to officially obtain the private conversations that Facebook already had shown them.

But when the targeted Facebook users were investigated by agents in a local FBI field office, sometimes using covert surveillance techniques, nothing criminal or violent turned up.

News that would show how easily the Biden actions would be to overturn

New lawsuit challenges the legality of Biden’s student loan forgiveness plan reports on a lawsuit filed against the Biden student loan forgiveness plan.

President Joe Biden’s plan to forgive hundreds of billions of dollars in student loan debt violates both federal law and the Constitution, according to a just-filed lawsuit from the Pacific Legal Foundation (PLF), a libertarian law firm.

“This isn’t how laws are supposed to be made,” Caleb Kruckenberg, an attorney for PLF, tells Reason. “Only Congress has the power to pass laws and spend money under the Constitution. The administration’s actions here are flagrantly illegal.”

This is the first serious challenge to Biden’s student loan forgiveness plan, which he announced last month. The lawsuit’s plaintiff is Frank Garrison, who’s also an attorney at PLF. Garrison borrowed federal student loans to pay for law school, but according to him, Biden’s debt forgiveness plan will actually subject him to a financial penalty in the form of a state tax. This gives him standing to sue the U.S. Education Department, his lawsuit argues.

“Despite the staggering scope of this regulatory action, it was taken with breathtaking informality and opacity,” the lawsuit claims. “In the rush, the administration has created new problems for borrowers in at least six states that tax loan cancellation as income.”

With this lawsuit being filed on 27 September 2022, I hope it will work in time

Considering the magnitude of the Biden dictum, I hope that the Supreme Court puts this on a fast track.

News that shows the naked partisanship within Biden

Biden calls Florida mayors but not DeSantis as Hurricane Ian nears

The New York Post points out how Biden called Democrat mayors in Florida but refused to call (my original wording due to the original story early in the evening of 27 September) held off a call to Governor DeSantis as Hurricane Ian approaches.

President Biden called three Florida mayors Tuesday as Hurricane Ian nears Florida’s western coast — hours before reaching out to Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, with whom he has clashed on issues such as COVID-19 policies and migration.

As the devastating Category 3 storm approached, Biden first spoke with Tampa Mayor Jane Castor, St. Petersburg Mayor Ken Welch and Clearwater Mayor Frank Hibbard. Castor and Welch are Democrats, while Hibbard is a Republican.

The president waited until Tuesday night to phone DeSantis.

The two discussed “the steps the Federal government is taking to help Florida prepare for Hurricane Ian,” said White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre. “The President and the Governor committed to continued close coordination.”

DeSantis is a potential 2024 Republican presidential candidate and has frequently criticized Biden’s performance.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said at her regular press briefing that Biden “held separate calls” with the mayors and “discussed planning and preparation for Hurricane Ian.”

Biden “underscored his commitment to the people of Florida and made clear that impacted communities will have the full support of the federal government to augment state and local emergency response efforts,” Jean-Pierre added.

Deanne Criswell, administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, joined Biden for his calls with the mayors and Criswell said Biden delegated to her the responsibility of liaising with DeSantis on Friday.

“The president directed me to contact the governor early on before we even did the declaration. I did that,” she said. “My regional administrator is with the governor right now making sure that we’re understanding what the needs are and our focus is on the current life safety needs.”

News that shows the dictatorial tendencies of Joe Biden when he uses executive orders more than Trump

Biden-era Democrats learn to love emergency powers after hating them under Trump

The Washington Examiner lays out a case for the over-use of executive orders by Joe Biden.

A sizable group of Democratic politicians have pressured President Joe Biden to declare national emergencies on the climate and abortion rights in recent weeks, but nearly 80 of those lawmakers attacked his predecessor’s use of emergency powers.

Former President Donald Trump declared a national emergency at the southern border in February 2019 as a means of bypassing Congress and securing funding for the completion of his campaign-promised border wall. The move was heartily opposed by Democrats at the time as an abuse of executive power.

“The President’s unlawful declaration over a crisis that does not exist does great violence to our Constitution and makes America less safe, stealing from urgently needed defense funds for the security of our military and our nation,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and then-Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said in a joint statement at the time. “This is plainly a power grab by a disappointed President, who has gone outside the bounds of the law to try to get what he failed to achieve in the constitutional legislative process.”

Even Trump’s final White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows , then a North Carolina Republican congressman and the chairman of the House Freedom Caucus , suggested Trump’s border emergency was a “slippery slope” and predicted “the potential for national emergencies being used for every single thing that we face in the future where we can’t reach an agreement.”

The House passed a bill in late February 2019 seeking to block Trump’s declaration, as outlined in the National Emergencies Act of 1976, but the measure eventually died in the Senate. Biden ended the border emergency in February 2021, shortly after entering office. A year and a half later, he is facing pressure from Democrats to invoke similar emergency powers on abortion and climate.

Eighty-three members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus sent a letter to the president and Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra on July 12, urging him to declare an emergency in response to “the Supreme Court’s radical and dangerous decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.

Sixty-eight of the letter’s signatories voted to overturn Trump’s border emergency back in 2019, and only two of the lawmakers who did not vote yes were sitting members of Congress at the time. Reps. Peter DeFazio (D-OR) and Steve Cohen (D-TN) both abstained from voting.

The White House is weighing declaring a public health emergency to shield doctors, pharmacies, and other healthcare providers who offer access to abortion pills in states with stringent abortion bans, but officials are reportedly concerned about the prospects that Republicans would attempt to file lawsuits over any such declared emergencies. Biden himself said he was open to reevaluating the idea during a meeting with state governors who took action to protect abortion access following the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization ruling.

Similarly, Sens. Cory Booker (D-NJ), Martin Heinrich (D-NM), Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Ed Markey (D-MA), Alex Padilla (D-CA), Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Brian Schatz (D-HI), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) all called on Biden to declare climate change a national emergency this past week.

Odd how things change

Trump used the executive order to advance the wall and secure the border. Although the press loves to overlook the murders perpetrated by illegals and the damage done by border crossers (like the 2,200 deaths, 118,000 rapes, and 138,000 assaults recorded).

Now Biden wants to allow abortion (a.k.a. baby murder) up until birth in all 50 states under his (devoutly Catholic) watch.
