standards they force on everyone else 6 replies
The public has been subjected to coronavirus lockdowns of varying degrees for over five months and counting, but prominent Democrats have decided that they should be exempt from the restrictions everyone else must abide by. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi openly flouted these restrictions recently when she got her hair coiffed at a San Francisco salon that remains closed to the public. Local ordinances only allow for outdoor services, and Pelosi was captured on security video not wearing a mask. Despite the evidence, her spokesman declared that the speaker “always wears a mask and complies with local COVID requirements.”
Biden, Democrats as race tightens 4 replies
SPRINGFIELD, PENNSYLVANIA — Nicole Murphy hasn’t ventured from her suburban neighborhood into Philadelphia since the racial justice protests and violence erupted three months ago. “In Kenosha and other places they were coming out of the cities into the suburbs and causing havoc. So you never know. It’s an unsettling feeling,” said Ms. Murphy, 32, who works in the insurance industry. She never has voted before and said she registered as a Republican this year to vote for President Trump.
Prompted by his pollsters, Joe Biden this week delivered a speech in Pittsburgh condemning the violence across America’s cities. The speech was laced with lies, starting with the claim that he is a racial healer. Anyone inclined to believe that should look back at the Obama-Biden administration, which was defined by race-baiting and the deterioration of race relations. Biden in effect promised that the revolution underway in America would stop if he is elected president. Never mind that he plans on bringing the revolutionaries into his administration. Should he win, he will give key positions to radicals who want to spur, not stop, the revolution.
reflects Dems’ hypocrisy 2 replies
It’s hard not to relish in the schadenfreude of Nancy Pelosi being caught on security camera, with wet hair, bare feet and no mask, indulging in an illicit private hair-salon experience in San Francisco. She violated coronavirus health rules by the city, which has ordered salons shut since March. The day after her Monday visit, they were allowed to open, for outdoor services only, but no blowouts, and masks are mandatory. So, Speaker Pelosi violated at least three rules. But such is her sense of entitlement that she refuses to apologize,
Safety Net’ recovers 25 missing
children in Ohio in first two weeks 2 replies
The U.S. Marshals Service recovered at least 25 missing children in Ohio in a two-week stretch as part of an ongoing operation in the Buckeye State. “Over the weekend U.S. Marshals rescued dozens of missing children across Ohio, many of whom were being trafficked.” Gov. Mike DeWine said during a Tuesday news conference. “Operation Safety Net” is still in its first two weeks and is ongoing, according to the Marshals Service. It’s being carried out in conjunction with local law enforcement agencies around northern Ohio. DeWine described it as a “great, great effort,”
down, claims cuts left her ‘destined to fail’ 3 replies
Carmen Best, the first Black police chief in Seattle’s history, left her post Wednesday, saying on her way out that the city council’s police budget cuts had put her in a “position destined to fail,” according to a report. Best, 55, announced her resignation Aug 10, after the council made good on its promise to approve sweeping proposals that would slash the police department budget by $4 million and cut as many as 100 officers from the force. “I believe 100% that they were putting me in a position destined to fail. Cutting a police department that already had low staffing numbers, that was already struggling to keep up with the demand,
President Trump spoke mildly in defense of Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse on Tuesday, saying that the 17-year-old seemed to be defending himself when he shot three people, killing two of them. NPR, fresh off of interviewing In Defense of Looting author Vicky Osterweil, had something stern to say about that, tweeting ‘President Trump declined to condemn the actions of the suspected 17-year-old shooter of three protesters against police brutality in Kenosha — claiming, without evidence, that it appeared the gunman was acting in self-defense.’
details around James Comey firing 4 replies
New FBI documents from former special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation revealed details of the circumstances surrounding President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey. The documents, released in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit from BuzzFeed News and CNN, include redacted copies of “302” records, which detail interviews conducted by federal investigators. Among them was an interview with an unidentified supervisory special agent who recalled the events of May 9, 2017. The agent recalled that at approximately 4:51 p.m. the White House asked for Comey’s email address. Events moved swiftly from that point on.
The dynasty is a dinosaur. Camelot finally went out of business, much like the end of T.S. Eliot’s poem, The Hollow Men. “This is how the world ends/ Not with a bang, but a whimper.” The last of the Kennedys, carrying the name of the patriarch of the clan, Joseph P. Kennedy, went down hard to, of all people, Sen. Ed Markey, who spent his entire lackluster career aping the Kennedys, but now ends their 75-year reign over Massachusetts politics. Markey rolled in the state’s upper-middle-class lily-white suburbs. Kennedy was reduced to carrying the cities, but not by nearly enough, as well as a few working-class towns inhabited by blue-collar
Toddlers and children are not potent vectors for spreading the coronavirus, the latest evidence suggests, but adolescents and young adults are. Yet even as kindergartens everywhere remain closed, college campuses are reopening. But there’s an asterisk. Colleges, in truth, clearly have no intention of being genuinely open once they’ve cashed students’ rent and tuition checks. Countless students have paid full tuition, room, and board. Some did so after being threatened with the loss of their place at their school. Others were promised that they could learn either while socially distanced or live on campus. Unfortunately, students are instead being sent back to an inferior online education session.
Washington Monument, Jefferson Memorial 21 replies
The White House slammed Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser on Tuesday night for a “ludicrous” plan to remove, relocate or “contextualize” the Washington Monument, the Jefferson Memorial and other monuments in the nation’s capital. “By publishing a plan that recommends potentially removing the Washington Monument, Christopher Columbus Statue, Andrew Jackson Statue, and Jefferson Memorial—among many other ludicrous recommendations — the radically liberal mayor of Washington, D.C., is repeating the same left-wing narrative used to incite dangerous riots: demolishing our history and destroying our great heritage,” said White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany.
