Double dose of Leftist insanity:

  1. California closes beaches even though outdoors and sunshine are very non-conducive to virus transmission and social distancing is easy even on “crowded” beaches.
  2. New York subways are extremely crowded, poorly ventilated and filthy – in other words, the worst-case scenario for virus transmission–  but New York must keep them open, despite being a center of the pandemic.  It took them a long time just to close them at night for cleaning.  What incompetence!  It isn’t a secret that NYC has a wildly disproportionate infection rate.  It is obviously Trump’s fault.  And racism.

California man arrested 3 times in a day, given citations and released due coronavirus restrictions — Brought to you by the Left — including the “Christian” Left.   I’m waiting for vigilante groups to start up.  If the government refuses to protect people from things like this they will start to do it themselves.  It is why even more Leftists are buying guns.

New York Times calls for DNC investigation into Biden sexual assault claims – Uh, didn’t this paragon of journalism do an investigation already and publish a scripted “nothing to see here, folks” response?  And even that was sanitized by the Biden team.

Side note: The bigger issue here is the media and Democrat hypocrisy with this compared to Kavanaugh.  But note that Biden doesn’t call her a liar.  Wouldn’t you if you were falsely accused?

That POTUS of course is Barack Obama. And, I will take Lisa Page at her word. It’s an off the cuff communication with her paramour. She’s excited. She’s getting the Director prepped.

In the clip, Erickson asserts that there is only a “0.03 chance of dying from COVID in the state of California,” prompting him to ask, “Does that necessitate sheltering in place? Does that necessitate shutting down medical systems? Does that necessitate people being out of work?”

Erickson also asked why fatalities were being counted as COVID-19 deaths when other ailments were actually more to blame.“When someone dies in this country right now, they’re not talking about the high blood pressure, the diabetes, the stroke. They’re saying ‘Did they die from COVID?’” Erickson said. “We’ve been to hundreds of autopsies. You don’t talk about one thing, you talk about comorbidities. ER doctors now [say] ‘It’s interesting when I’m writing about my death report, I’m being pressured to add COVID. Why is that?”

The video was deleted late last night for “violating YouTube’s terms of service.”

Bill Gates Defends Communist Chinese Government; Says It ‘Did A Lot Of Things Right’ While US Acted ‘Poorly’ — Sickening.  Yeah, China just never stops lying, disappears whistleblowers, profiteered from the pandemic, etc., and Bill definitely isn’t just trying to prop up the WHO to save his reputation . . .


The video normal people have been waiting for: Thanks, celebrities — I hope that one of the good byproducts of the pandemic is that people scale back the worship of celebrities and athletes.

A lot of celebrities seem to imagine (see what I did there) that we want them to shoehorn themselves into this crisis to offer advice or entertainment. But when people are dealing with the loss of jobs, a death in the family, etc. it comes off looking really out of touch. There’s a combination of navel gazing and not-so-subtle humble-bragging about their fabulous wealth and fabulous friends in many of these clips which ought to embarrass them. But somehow it doesn’t.

Overall, you get the sense that for a lot of these people the most important thing is that we not forget about them. No, it’s worse than that. They not only want to be remembered, they want to be important and applauded no matter what else is going on in the world. It’s pretty repulsive.


Good for him, using actual facts and logic.  Paying people who haven’t lost jobs was stupid (as was making it more profitable to be unemployed than to be employed).  The virus is less lethal than thought.  There is no reason to shut down the country and hand out our grandchildren’s money.


Too Many Women Today Want a Marriage Where The Man Makes Commitments While They Promise Nothing — Yep. Things have changed.  I can see why men are much more skeptical about marriage.

But women today reject the idea that they should be bound by any of the traditional promises for women. She expects him to do half the housework. The idea that she should give him sex if she doesn’t feel like it is considered equivalent to rape. She can’t be expected to support his career: she has her own. And of course, if she decides that the relationship no longer meets her needs, she can leave at any time for any reason or no reason. And he is then obligated to pay alimony and child support.

Marriage today is still a huge commitment for a man. Almost as much as it ever was. But it is pretty much zero commitment for a woman. She promises nothing.


CNN finally covers Larry King clip in which Biden accuser’s mother purportedly alludes to daughter’s sexual assault — There are countless reasons that CNN is nothing but shameless Leftist hackery, but this is a hall-of-fame reason: 700 stories about Kavanaugh within the first few weeks of the story breaking and 1 on Reade.  And even many Leftists concede that Reade’s case is far superior to Ford’s.

Lesson learned: Trump said that women would let you touch them if you are rich and famous.  Clinton and Biden showed that if you are a Democrat you can touch them against their will.

More here: CNN slammed for treatment of Biden sexual assault allegations after old Larry King clip surfaces — Such hypocrisy and duplicitous behavior from the Democrat-owned media.

The resurfaced CNN clip from 1993 appeared to show Reade’s mother alluding to “problems” her daughter faced while working as a staffer for the then-Delaware senator. Reade later told Fox News it was indeed the voice of her mother on the clip. Biden’s presidential campaign has adamantly denied Reade’s allegations but the video could be cited as evidence supporting Reade’s allegation – even though her late mother, in the clip, does not specifically refer to a sexual assault claim.

CNN did not immediately respond to a series of questions, including whether the network knew the footage existed.

“Larry King may have had the biggest scoop of his CNN career this evening … And it’s an open question whether his former employer will say a word about it,” New York Post reporter Jon Levine tweeted.

And from another article on the topic, fancy this:

The National Organization for Women (NOW) also did not respond to comments from Fox News. The offices of Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., and Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., former 2020 hopefuls who have been floated as possible VP picks for Biden, did not respond to requests for comment about the latest development.

Other names floated as possible running mates also did not immediately respond to requests for comment, including: Rep. Val Demings, D-Fla., former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H.; Sen. Maggie Hassan, D-N.H.; New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham; Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, D-Nev.; Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill.; Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz.; Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.; Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms and former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams.

Normally it isn’t safe getting between those ghouls and a microphone, but now they are silent?  What hypocrites!

And then there are the shrill, hypocritical harpies from The View‘The View’ ignores Tara Reade’s Biden allegations after championing Kavanaugh accusers.  They went off 24×7 in the most ridiculous ways on the spurious Kavanaugh claims, but are silent on Reade.  Same for Pelosi, Shumer, et al.  Go figure.

And note that Biden’s denial immediately segues to the pro-woman legislation he has advanced and pretends he doesn’t have a well-documented track record of inappropriate touching.  They know they can’t say, “He’s never done anything like that before!”, so they switch the category.


Whitmer: I don’t know how we awarded that contract to my campaign vendor who just went dark — Sure, sweetheart.

On Tuesday the Whitmer administration terminated a door-to-door pandemic tracing contract awarded to Great Lakes Community Engagement, an organization led by Kolehouse, just one day after its announcement. Within 24 hours of the cancellation, Kolehouse, who was set to take in nearly $200,000 in the deal, took down the website for his consulting firm, K2K strategies, as well as his Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn accounts. He did not return multiple requests for comment from the Washington Free Beacon and declined to answer questions about the contract, which would have tasked him with collecting sensitive health data, from the Washington Post and Crain’s Detroit.

My favorite Bible reading / prayer / memorization routine

There is nothing like reading a chapter of the Bible in the morning and a chapter at night, along with some study notes.  I did that the first time I read through the Bible back in 1996 and it was life-changing.  Hey, God’s word does what it promises.  Who knew?

While I’ve never stopped reading completely, I’ve had different patterns over the years, usually just once a day.  But late last year I started back with the twice a day routine and I don’t think I’ll ever stop.  It is just the perfect set of bookends for the day.

I don’t try to get through the entire Bible in a year.  Nothing wrong with that, of course.  I’ve done it before, and even listened to it over just a few months when I’d play it in the car regularly.  The pace I’m on now is a “read the Bible in 20 months” plan.

I’ve always loved the chronological approach, but I do like a mix of Old and New Testament as well.  But I think my favorite will be this plan I came across in Logos, where you cycle through 7 different books.  Currently I’m going through a few chapters each of Genesis, Ruth, Psalms, Job, Isaiah, Matthew and 1 Corinthians.  It is a great mix, where every day or two I’m reading from a different book.

For prayer, I made a personal translation of the Valley of Vision Puritan prayers, where I converted them from old English poetry form to contemporary prose.  I read one a day. (I wish I could get it published, as it is so much more accessible than the original, but the copyright owners didn’t even respond to my request.)

I also just started using the PrayerMate prayer app, which is an easy way to keep track of various prayer categories.

Finally, I love the Bible Memory app.  I cycle through a batch of verses at least once a day, sometimes more often.  When I come across a new verse or passage I add it to the list.  Whenever I am bored or distracted I am inclined to reach for my phone to do something.  But having taken off social media apps, I now go to the Bible Memory app and do a few verses instead.  Aside from being a great part of your devotional time, it is helpful if you are out waiting for something like an oil change or whatever.  It really redeems the time.

And while I am not good at memorizing, this app has helped me memorize so many more verses, passages and even whole chapters than I ever thought possible.  My challenge is not to just go through them and not think about them.  For example, I’ve gone through Jude so many times that I can recite it without thinking about it, so I need to challenge myself to slow down and meditate on what it says.

So that’s it.  Morning: Prayer, then reading a chapter of the Bible and the accompanying study notes, then some memory verses.  Evening: Another chapter.  And perhaps more memory verses at breaks during the day.

I love this routine and its results.  Your mileage may vary.

Some people are busier than ever during this pandemic, but others have lots of time on their hands.  For the latter, this is a great time to establish good habits in this area.  If you can’t do it now, when will you?

And remember that even if you are very busy, you can listen to the word of God on audio – for free!  Redeem your commute!  Each chapter is only about 4 minutes, so you’ll be surprised at how much ground you can cover.  Of course you can’t look at study notes and such, but the word of God is what really matters.  And if you get distracted there is always the rewind button.

And if you still say you don’t have time, ask yourself how much entertainment you consume each day, and why God designed the world in such a way that you never have time for his daily bread.

Be blessed!

Beautiful!

John Ekdahl has been on a helluva tear on Twitter. He wonders why it is that the New York-based media is scolding Floridians for visiting the beaches in small numbers, but yet all of New York City’s parks remain open. He wonders why people are being told they can’t drive but New York City’s subway system remains open, each car a contained petri dish. (And note — they only gave out the order to wear a mask on the subway a few days ago!)And I’ll point this one out: The same people saying that protests are non-essential are the same people who said it would violate the Constitution to quarantine people from the New York City area to the New York City area. Andrew Cuomo, hero of the fascist lockdown lobby, threatened to provoke a Constitutional crisis if Trump sought to limit New Yorkers’ holy right to export the plague to other states. Why is it the Ruling Class is busy demanding lockdowns for others while accepting no restrictions at all for themselves?

Democrats are ‘grappling’ with Tara Reade’s allegations against Joe Biden (many in silence) — It doesn’t sound like grappling to me.  Sounds like they have decided to ignore the obvious because of politics.  If they really thought she wasn’t credible they would just say so.  By their silence they are admitting that they think he’s guilty.  I think they’ll ultimately have to replace Biden, but this incident shows how the media and the DNC are complete frauds.

This is how messed up these people are.  She’s an “advocate” ignoring that the new President would be a predator so she can help the predator fight sexual violence.

“For me, this is extremely painful,” said an advocate who had worked with Biden’s office on sexual violence issues during the Obama administration. She asked to remain anonymous because she worries that expressing support for further investigation into Reade’s claims could jeopardize her chance of working with the White House if Biden wins. “I really saw Biden as a champion for a really long time,” she said. “I’m experiencing cognitive dissonance right now. I haven’t had the ability or the time to process emotionally what it means for me to believe that he did this.”…

I find Reade infinitely more believable than Kavanaugh’s accuser.  But the media and Democrats just put reporting on hold for a couple weeks while they could figure out how to bury this.
