Highlights of the News

The New York Post reported, "President Biden on Wednesday warned Americans they may have to cancel small outdoor gatherings on the Fourth of July if there’s a slowdown of COVID-19 vaccinations."

I remember that Dr. Seuss story, "How the Pinko Kid-Sniffing Crook Tried to Steal Independence Day."

ITEM 1: Newt Gingrich said, "Republicans have to learn to win the argument about who's the real racist. The real racists are people like Biden and Harris. The real racists are the people who want to set quotas, mostly, by the way, excluding Asian-Americans. The real racists are the people who want to brainwash your child so that they feel guilty about being born white or being born of mixed background."

Media Matters 4 America had a problem with Gingrich telling the truth.

ITEM 2: Yahoo reported, "The law enforcement arm of the U.S. Postal Service has been quietly running a program that tracks and collects Americans’ social media posts, including those about planned protests, according to a document obtained by Yahoo News.

"The details of the surveillance effort, known as iCOP, or Internet Covert Operations Program, have not previously been made public. The work involves having analysts trawl through social media sites to look for what the document describes as inflammatory postings and then sharing that information across government agencies."

Liberals need not worry.

They are not the targets. They can threaten cops just like LeBron James without fear or retribution. The government will only go after conservatives.

For now.

ITEM 3: Oh yes, LeBron James. Jordan Davidson reported, "The National Fraternal Order of Police condemned LeBron James for using his influence to call for an attack on the police officer who shot and killed a teenage girl wielding a knife to save the life of another black girl."

James tweeted a picture of the cop with the words YOU'RE NEXT. 

This is why it is best to follow the 24 Hour Rule. The press always screws up the first report. Always.

ITEM 4: The Daily Mail reported, "A UK technology company is inserting customized product placement into films and TV shows – even those that were originally released decades ago. 

"London-based firm Mirriad inserts products or signage, like a branded beer bottle on a table to a clothing advert on a giant billboard, into streaming content.

"The firm uses artificial intelligence (AI) to analyse films and TV episodes for space where the ads or objects can be subtly inserted. 

"It means old Hollywood classics like Casablanca or The Great Escape could soon appear on streaming services with the newest ads in the background, like a new Apple smartphone or the latest McDonald's whopper."

I look forward to seeing Charlie the Tuna in Jaws, Gatorade in Splash, and of course, Wendy's in Peter Pan.

ITEM 5: The New York Post reported, "Many people in the city that never sleeps are still snoozing on the COVID-19 vaccine.

"Around half of adults in the New York City are yet to get their first dose — even though everyone age 16 and over has been eligible for weeks and appointments are widely available.

"Vaccinated New Yorkers are now urging their feet-dragging neighbors to get on board so the Big Apple can finally can finally reach herd immunity — estimated to come when between 70-90 percent of people are inoculated — and return to its old self."

Once again, New York City -- the Epicenter for Communist Covid in America -- wants to ruin things for the rest of the country.

President Trump should have quarantined the entire city when he had the chance.

ITEM 6: MRC-TV reported, "The Marxist Black Lives Matter (BLM) organization not only called out President Joe Biden on Tuesday, but they tweeted that his regime is treating their communities worse than former President Donald Trump, which might be the worst thing since Hitler that you can call a leftist.

"BLM noted that Biden’s first 100 days in office are up very soon and that things have only become worse under his reign. Essentially, BLM is upset about a practice that has been going on for years, which is the U.S. military providing police departments across the country with hand-me-downs that they're not going to use anymore."

Democrats created this mess. Let them deal with it.

ITEM 7: NBC reported, "Quarterback Justin Fields has shared some medical information with teams ahead of next week’s draft.

"NFL Media reports that Fields has informed teams that he is managing epilepsy. The neurological condition can cause seizures and is usually treated with medication, although different cases can call for different medical approaches."

If you cannot drive a car because you have seizures, maybe you should not be in a sport connected to CTE.

His body, his choice.

ITEM 8: The Daily Wire reported, "President Joe Biden on Tuesday filed an appeal seeking to force doctors and hospitals to perform potentially harmful transgender-related procedures and surgeries even if they hold objections.

"As outlined by BECKET Law’s Luke Goodrich, a court in January struck down the administration’s move to punish doctors who don’t perform transgender-related procedures for supposed sex discrimination. Biden on Tuesday officially appealed the ruling."

I keep trying to understand why Biden is pushing turning men into women and women into men, and the only answer I can come up with is he is a pervert.

Let us hope the courts still have some common sense.

ITEM 9: The New York Daily News reported, "A crew of six men and a woman, some armed with knives, went on a rampage in a Bronx McDonald’s, stealing a purse from a customer they beat up and then snatching a pocketbook from a woman who tried to intervene, cops said Wednesday."

This is what New Yorkers want.

They elected a regime that ended putting people in jail upon arrest -- a regime that painted the racist Black Lives Matter graffiti in front of Trump Tower.

This lawlessness is the result Democrats want because eventually (and ironically) it will lead to a police state.

ITEM 10: Fox reported, "A commissioner on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has accused Democrats of crossing a 'clear line drawn by the First Amendment' by pressuring the agency to block the sale of a popular Miami Spanish-language radio station.

"Members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus called last week for the FCC to stop the sale of WSUA-AM to America CV, owner of the conservative América TeVé network.

"Republican FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr objected in a tweet on Monday."

He tweeted, "Democrats in Congress are pressuring the FCC to block the sale of a radio station based on the political viewpoints it would broadcast to South Florida’s Hispanic community. This crosses a clear line drawn by the First Amendment and would turn the FCC into an arm of the DNC."

If Hispanics vote Republican, there go Democrat plans to replace white Republican voters.

ITEM 11: KING-TV reported, "An Olympia man released from prison early under Washington's new drug possession rules was arrested again Saturday. He was freed just two days earlier on Thursday, April 15. 

"Thurston County deputies arrested Randall Taufetee early Saturday morning after they said he drove through neighborhoods at speeds approaching 120 mph. 

"According to deputies, when they caught up to Taufetee, he was smiling and told them, 'Governor Inslee let me out of prison early and I wanted to have some fun.' "

120 mph.

Well, at least we know he wasn't smoking pot.

ITEM 12: Breitbart reported, "An ICE Enforcement and Removal officer revealed to Breitbart Texas a recent email disseminating instructions to censor reports when listing particular facts involving the incarceration of criminal aliens.

"The email tells officers to redact information prior to submission to Immigration Courts or the public as part of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). The source, who wished to remain anonymous, believes the instructions are designed to hide the full truth when criminal aliens are released instead of deported and then commit subsequent crimes."

The government lies to you out of habit.

ITEM 13: The New York Times said, "Biden to Declare Atrocities Against Armenia Were Genocide.

"The designation for the World War I-era killings would further fray U.S. relations with Turkey, but it is a risk the president appears willing to take to further human rights, officials said."

Sure, piss off Turkey for no apparent reason.

Maybe Kim Kardashian will visit the Biden White House too.

How about we condemn the Buffalo Soldiers for their role in "Indian genocide"?

ITEM 14: Forbes reported, "Former Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut, a Democrat-turned-independent well known for his close relationships with Republicans, will help Democrats make the case for a D.C. statehood bill set to pass the House on Thursday, which faces long odds in the Senate."

Lieberman?

The Democrat Party should just send Republican turncoats large packets of money, hire their kids, and promise them fat lobbying contracts when they are primaried. RINOs are easy so easy to flip, we should call them pancakes.

ITEM 15: Reuters reported, "Bradley Gayton, who joined the Coca-Cola Co as general counsel in September and made headlines for requiring its law firms to staff its matters with diverse lawyers or lose its business, has resigned, the beverage giant said in a Wednesday filing.

"Gayton will now serve as an outside consultant to Coca-Cola’s chief executive, the Atlanta-based company said in a statement and a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission."

Looks like Woka-Cola woke up to the fact that all this virtue signaling is hurting the company.

FINALLY, United Press International reported, "The percentage of U.S. doctors who are Black has barely risen in the past 120 years, and there's still a wide pay gap between White and Black physicians, a new study finds.

"The analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data from 1900 to 2018 included about 150,000 physicians, with about 3,300 Black male physicians and 1,600 Black female physicians."

45 years of affirmative action failed to fix this alleged problem.

When I am sick, I don't care what color, what sex, or what religion the doctor is.

Even when I am not sick I don't care, don't care, and still don't care.

    1. Lower the standards? Medical mistakes kill more people than guns now.
      We need to expand our medical schools instead of importing low grade imitations from subpar nations. We used to have the brightest kids in the world. I think we still do, but we are squandering the chance to make them great with rhetoric about how Billy has two mommies and even though he was born with a penis, that doesn't mean he's a boy.

    2. They are already given significant application advantages, and many worthy white and Asian candidates with better credentials are refused admittance to medical school. And still, with all the support systems in place, because medical school really wants to graduate you, too many blacks fail to make it. Statistically, you should never want a black physician unless you have specific information regarding their capabilities, because in general they are inferior to all their other classmates. Isn't that terrible. Affirmative action has stolen the credibility of black students who deserved the chance to go med school and become doctors with the reputation that comes with it. It's just sickening.

  3. I’m so old, I remember when the “herd immunity” number was 50%. Then last week, I saw it was 60-70%. Now today, it’s 70-90%. Next week, I guess it’ll be 90-100%. Then in May, it’ll be 110%, as in “We gotta give 110% to beat this killer virus so that we can have a Fourth.” And millions of NPCs will say, “Right, 110%.”

  4. Item 4 - I wonder how inserting product placements in old movies will hold up under copyright law.

The Catskills lost the 1st breakaways in the sixties and seventies. South Florida will spend a few decades like the Florida Gulf resorts, dilapidated. Then an architectural genius will tear down those hi-rise beach eyesores (the retirees also brought their NYC penchant for tall buildings with them), as well. I'll be long gone by then, but just maybe my future grandkids will have a retro experience with a picturesque So. Florida beach, where the 3:00 p.m. sun doesn't set behind 50 story beach skyscrapers.

  10. My current primary care physician is a black doctor who emigrated from Africa. Based on my experience thus far I think he is terrific.

    Before the Democrat Party and all the Socialist-infiltrated institutions (including my employer) overturned MLK’s dream of a “color-blind society” and made literally everything revolve around race/color of one’s skin; I would have perceived this doctor in a totally positive light.

    I would have viewed the doctor as an example of America as a nation and society where anyone of any race, any color, can come and be successful. A nation and society where a person is not judged by the color of their skin, but by their character.

    Upon reflection, I still feel this way about this doctor and the USA. And I have a deep and abiding cold anger for the nonstop slanders the Democrat Party and it’s leading actors make against the nation and society I love.

  21. 13 - There's a lesson in here. Much of the world is mired in tribalism - where there is no "long ago past" so that blame cannot be placed upon the long dead via inflicting it upon their tribal descendants. The US created a society where that wasn't the case (particularly for immigrants, who were expected to leave their old tribal rivalries at the door on the way in), but the left is trying to retribalize society for their own benefit. Don't buy into it.

    Two other side items...

    a) Three of the world's biggest, longest-running trouble spots (the Middle East, the Caucasus, and the Balkans) were outlying provinces of the Ottoman Empire; this is not coincidental.

    b) Always keep in mind that a lot of careful crafting went into the definition of "genocide" after WW2 - the crafting serving to cover what the Nazis did while leaving out what the Communists (particularly the Soviets) did. To put it in contemporary parlance, mass-murder based on "ethnicity" is a hate crime, but mass-murder based on other things isn't.

    15 - Another problem they have is they (Coca-Cola, Inc.) lost in court to the IRS; if it stands up on appeal, with interest and penalties, they're on the hook for $12B. They need to worry about cash flow, not being woke.

    FINALLY - The best and the brightest in the US stopped going into medicine years ago - largely based on fear of career ruination due to the risk of the appearance of "socialized medicine." I was one of them, and don't regret that choice seeing what's happened. "Health care" has become like "education" and "government" - ponderous, dim-witted bureaucracies staffed mostly with time-servers. Stay in good health, and really, really do your homework when you have to get any sort of care (regular or otherwise).

  31. USPS is now a spy agency. Did Ben Franklin and the Framers really create the Postal Service as a free-floating domestic spy agency? And a partisan one, at that?

    What agency will be weaponized against conservative Americans next? The Farm Fascism Bureau? The Bureau of Woke Weights and Marxist Measures?

    And like Pelosi's false-flag Antifa goons planted at the Capitol, one planted troll can go on Parler and make threats, which are then used to justify the forever stamp of the Postal Police State.

    If you recall, the Post Office was delivering semi-trailers full of phony Mail-In ballots in Pennsylvania--or purposely delivering trucks full of real blank ballots to known vote-fraudsters. And then tried to strong-arm the whistle-blower.

    They also back-dated Biden ballots after the election was over. And again strong-armed the whistle-blowers. Also, they threw Trump campaign mail in the trash.

    And now, they are spying on the People whose election they just helped steal. On the taxpayer's dime. Perfect, really.

    Every institution of American life that we created to guard our liberties has now turned inward and is attacking those very liberties. This cannot go on.
