It’s Not Often in Life You Get a Do-Over (So Take the Do-Over!) — Good tips.  I’m a big fan of “zero based budgeting,” both in financial and activity terms.  Don’t just do things out of habit.


Beautiful! Alabama Bill Would Criminalize Making False Rape Accusations — Great news.  They deserve whatever punishment the men would have received.  At least that’s what Jesus says – Deuteronomy 19:18–19 The judges shall inquire diligently, and if the witness is a false witness and has accused his brother falsely, then you shall do to him as he had meant to do to his brother. So you shall purge the evil from your midst.


Nearly all NY coronavirus patients suffered underlying health issue, study finds — How’s that “healthy at any size” nonsense working out for them?


AOC suggests low-income Americans should boycott work after coronavirus shutdown ends — Only in a ridiculously entitled welfare state can people even consider such stupid ideas.  The ignorance of the conditions in the world and throughout history is appalling yet unsurprising.  This is just one more consequence of these bailouts where people are mad at employers who aren’t laying them off because unemployment benefits pay more.  And think of all those who won’t bother to work if it just means a few incremental dollars per hour.


Usama bin Laden wanted to kill Obama so ‘totally unprepared’ Biden would be president, declassified docs show — Oof.  And that was before Biden’s apparent dementia.


Houston Police Push Back Against Mandatory Mask Ordinance — Good for them!  The Leftist judge behind this ridiculous power grab was swept in the “blue wave” when Beto ran against Cruz.  Hopefully those voters learn why you shouldn’t vote for Democrats.


New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo Is the ‘Hero of the Fascist Lockdown Lobby’ — Outstanding points.  Only a lackey media could prop up Cuomo as some sort of hero, when his is obviously ignorant and malicous.  The inconsistencies/hypocrisies are deadly and mind-numbing.  The subways are obviously a root cause of all this.

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?

The Atlantic analyst to media, critics: Coronavirus pandemic has proven Trump right about China and multilateral orgs  — I’m not naive enough to think that the deranged Left will let up on their Trump-hatred, even if it meant the country being destroyed.  But is it possible that more middle ground people are seeing that Trump was right about China all along?  And we haven’t even gotten to the border protection discussion.  What fool would oppose border controls now?!

Don’t forget that China was proclaiming that they had the outbreak under control at the same time it was hoarding PPE, and offered false data that no doubt kept prices for these goods relatively low for a few weeks


Globa Health Security Index — Imagine that, in late 2019 the U.S. was ranked as the top country in the world with respect to dealing with a pandemic.  Has the media mentioned this?  Have the Democrats acknowledged it?  Trump doesn’t get all the credit, as much of this was obviously in place before his tenure.  But it does show how ridiculous it is to blame him for the U.S. not being prepared for this.  And note that it wasn’t some conservative think-tank that come up with this:

To create the GHS Index, NTI, JHU, and the EIU project team—with generous grants from the Open Philanthropy Project, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the Robertson Foundation—worked with an international advisory panel of 21 experts from 13 countries to create a detailed and comprehensive framework of 140 questions, organized across 6 categories, 34 indicators, and 85 subindicators to assess a country’s capability to prevent and mitigate epidemics and pandemics.


Enjoy this 1.5 minute segment.  It is one of the many reasons I like Trump and loathe the media and the Democratic party.  They like this pandemic and they choreographed Biden’s fact-free Tweet and the reporter’s question because they savor the opportunity to harm Trump.  But he calls it what it is, uses it to point out what everyone really knows (that Biden is lost and confused and just lamely trying to read what the Dems script for him) and reminds them that even Biden had to admit that Trump was right about canceling flights from China.


The Economist calls it ‘striking’ that the media has greeted with silence the latest #MeToo claim against Joe Biden — Striking . . . and predictable.  Such hypocrites.  They are not only doing the opposite of their “believe all women!!” mantra, but they aren’t even acknowledging it at all.  It shows they haven’t changed a bit since the Bill Clinton years — even though they recently pretended that they should have reacted differently then.

Trump noted that when you are wildly popular women may let you grab them by the pu$$y and the Left lost their minds (it is obviously consensual if they let you do it).

But Biden has been credibly accused of literally grabbing Reade’s pu$$y against her will and the Left is silent.

Bonus “pass the popcorn” link – Tweet from Rose McGowan (oddball Leftist, to be sure, but at least she has standing as a real victim) against Alyssa Milano’s hypocrisy about Biden:

You are a fraud. This is about holding the media accountable. You go after Trump & Kavanaugh saying Believe Victims, you are a lie. You have always been a lie. The corrupt DNC is in on the smear job of Tara Reade, so are you. SHAME


Coronavirus pushes NBA to propose 50% player pay cuts — China has cost the major sports teams and players billions.  I guarantee that the value of franchises will go down permanently.  Who would take the risk for something like this happening again?

Remember when Daryl Morey of the Houston Rockets made some benign comments supporting Hong Kong and the NBA and its players eviscerated him because they didn’t want to lose any China money?  Yeah, good times.  Now that China has cost the owners and players billions I wonder if they’ll reconsider whether they should have bowed down to an evil Communist government that literally kills dissenters, lies about deadly diseases and deflects blame 24×7.


We’re gonna need a lot of millstones to clean this up . . .

This Mom Went Undercover on Instagram as an 11-Year-Old Girl to Show How Online Sex Abuse Happens — I can’t believe how little most parents monitor their kids’ online access.


Great points here.  The media “forgets” that the official crimes they were sentenced for were often plea-bargained down from something more serious and often violent.   I’ve done prison ministry for 13 years and have met countless felons. I’m still waiting to meet one who didn’t belong there.  The common denominator is almost always a broken home — brought to you by the Left’s policies.

And yes, the rich Leftists won’t be impacted by letting these felons out on the streets, but those they claim to care about will be hurt.

Teens Cough on Produce, Post Video — And Dems want them to vote.


Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Tucker Carlson both call on Sen. Richard Burr to resign over stock dump; Sen. Kelly Loeffler too — This is the tip of the iceberg.  If journalists did their jobs they’d investigate all  those politicians who got miraculously rich while working as “public servants.”  Start with Pelosi.  These people have traded off insider information for decades.  Yet somehow congress exempted themselves!

Baltimore mayor pleads: Stop shooting each other so we can save hospital beds for coronavirus patients — A little late in the game now that the citizens were turned against the police so that they became timid and the lawlessness increased.


Why Media Does Not Call It “Wuhan Virus” — Because they hate Trump and America.

First, the Wuhan Coronavirus originated in Wuhan, China. Second, the Chinese Communist Party not only ignored but completely covered up the disease for as long as they could, allowing it to not only spread among its own people but to countries around the world. Third, diseases are regularly named after the area (like Ebola), city (like Lyme Disease), or region/nation (like Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) of their origin.

However, No American who has ever heard of West Nile Virus, German Measles, Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever, St. Louis Encephalitis, or Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever believes the phrase “Chinese Virus” is racist or xenophobic. The World Health Organization even acknowledged the reason they came up with the clunky, manufactured name “COVID-19” was to prevent the stigma from touching China.

Bonus: The media called it the Chinese/Wuhon virus before
Trump did.  Because consistency.

Also this: ‘Not as long as I’m president’: Trump tells reporter pursuing ‘racism’ angle why he refers to COVID19 as the ‘Chinese virus’.  I love it.

Oh, and this: SCREENSHOTS: Chinese state media used to call it ‘Wuhan virus’ but now that’s racist?  Those racist Chinese, always being racist against the Chinese!


Great video on the Left’s perversion of the world tolerance.  You can only tolerate what you disagree with.  We should tolerate people, not ideas.  They do neither.  They immediately go to name-calling and “canceling” other people (e.g., trying to destroy their reputations and/or take their jobs away).


Remember that Andrew Gillum was nearly governor of Florida and he was being considered as a VP pick for Biden.  Married father of three, rising Democrat star, caught in meth-fueled orgy with gay escort in a hotel room.  You think the media would have ignored this it he was a white Republican?

WaPo: Biden wasn’t “lying.” He just “described his stance inaccurately.”

A Washington Post fact-checker ruled Thursday that Joe Biden hadn’t lied when he said he supported a fracking ban during Sunday’s Democratic presidential debate. Rather, Biden had simply “described his fracking stance inaccurately.”

The Post gave Biden “Zero Pinocchios” for saying during the most recent Democratic debate that he opposed fracking entirely. Instead, the paper pointed to the Biden campaign’s explanation that the candidate had “misspoken” and that “his position was the same as ever,” opposing fracking only on public lands.Meanwhile, the Post criticized those who quoted Biden’s remarks verbatim.


What a sad little snowflake.  He actually called the police because the polite Prager U people were sharing ideas that “terrorized” him.  Yet he couldn’t name one thing wrong with the ideas.  Too many years of Leftist indoctrination for that kid!

How They Know Invaders Will Vote Democrat — The Dems’ use of illegal immigration to gain more power is one of the most transparently brazen and galling political acts in history. They are glad to ruin a great nation just for some temporary political influence.  It is sickening.

A story from February explains why Democrats want the border open, confident that the hordes flooding across to fundamentally transform our country will reliably vote Democrat for many generations to come. The invaders’ greedy, arrogant, and utterly unjustified sense of entitlement sets them squarely at the center of the Democrat reservation. They have even sued the country they invaded: Six migrant families filed multi-million dollar claims Monday against the Trump administration over last year’s family separations, saying they need the money to pay for counseling and other medical care to heal from the “torture” they said they suffered.Funny that people come from all over the world to break into our concentration camps so that they can be tortured. Each claimant seeks $3 million.No swarm of locusts could be more rapacious.


New Bill Proposes to Teach School Kids that ‘Fetuses’ Are Living Human Beings — Great strategy.  It will help offset some of the God-mocking Leftist agenda and plant seeds of doubt about the morality of abortion, and the debate exposes pro-aborts for the anti-science Leftists that they are.


Another man wins gold in women’s weightlifting — Confused Leftists demand equal pay for unequal work (compete against men directly if you want equality!), while they should be demanding equal chromosomes for equal trophies.


Not sure why he’s getting criticized.  He didn’t say anything racist, and even if he had, they’ve called him that so long that it doesn’t matter anymore.  It is already baked into impressions of him, for right or wrong.

Somalia is indeed awful.  We went to Kenya 5 times, and over the years more Somalis came into the area and made it visibly worse.

AOC killing the Amazon deal should be great fodder for the Republicans.  Do you really want people like that running the entire country?

He reeled in the Leftists.  Pelosi is now tied to the America-haters.  Great positioning for 2020.


‘Black’ Activist Claims Trump Has Kept Him from Becoming a Pastor — Reminds of a ~1980 SNL skit where John Belushi acts like he would have been a lock for the Olympics if it hadn’t been for Jimmy Carter.

Kyle J. Howard, who ethnically is as much Caucasian as African, was raised in an affluent Atlanta suburb by two loving parents who were both attorneys. Howard was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, with all the privileges and luxuries of the upper class.However, at some point in the last several years of community activism, the racial incendiary contrived a tale of having secretly been in the Crips gang in high school and raised in the dangerous ‘hood.’ Howard claims that his girlfriend (now wife) and parents did not know about his gang affiliation and that there are no members of his gang left to substantiate his tales because they’re all dead or in prison.

Priceless.

Surprise! Illegal immigration deeply unpopular with voters … in Mexico — So according to Leftist logic, Mexicans are racist against Hispanics.  Who knew?

More than 6 in 10 Mexicans say migrants are a burden on their country because they take jobs and benefits that should belong to Mexicans. A 55 percent majority supports deporting migrants who travel through Mexico to reach the United States.Those findings defy the perception that Mexico — a country that has sent millions of its own migrants to the United States, sending billions of dollars in remittances — is sympathetic to the surge of Central Americans. Instead, the data suggests Mexicans have turned against the migrants transiting through their own country, expressing antipathy that would be familiar to many supporters of President Trump north of the border.
