It was Time on January 7th

It's time to get the National Guard out of Washington, DC (nypost.com)

Even as the southern border has become an open sieve, the nation’s capital remains a militarized camp more than two months after the Jan. 6 riot in the US Capitol. Democrats insist on ignoring a crisis even as they claim to fear what’s now clearly a phantom threat.

The party that was furious when President Donald Trump sent in the National Guard at the start of his successful effort to secure the border now insists on keeping a massive Guard presence in Washington, DC. Thousands were to head home this month, but Congress and the Biden administration opted to keep most of them on until at least May 23.

Absolute scum.

They should have been there on January 6. They should have left on January 7. Every day they are there is a disgrace.  It insults everything America is all about.

Democrats did this. They are killing my country. And they’re not even bothering to do it slowly anymore.

As Usual, Trump is Right

Trump: Biden 'Turned Triumph Into Disaster' on Border Crisis – PJ Media

“We proudly handed the Biden Administration the most secure border in history. All they had to do was keep this smooth-running system on autopilot. Instead, in the span of a just few weeks, the Biden Administration has turned a national triumph into a national disaster. They are in way over their heads and taking on water fast,” the former president declared.

“The pathetic, clueless performance of Secretary Mayorkas on the Sunday Shows today was a national disgrace,” Trump argued. “His self-satisfied presentation—in the middle of the massive crisis he helped engineer—is yet more proof he is incapable of leading DHS. Even someone of Mayorkas’ limited abilities should understand that if you provide Catch-and-Release to the world’s illegal aliens then the whole world will come.”

Like every other policy failure we’ve already seen from this administration, it was entirely predictable. And entirely avoidable.

All you had to do was vote for the other guy. The guy whose policies were working.


Wow, Truth in Media—I’ve Forgotten What That’s Like

Slaoui says Trump admin. responsible for 90 percent vaccine rollout | One America News Network (oann.com)

As more Americans continue to get vaccinated daily, Operation Warp Speed officials are reminding the nation of the Trump administration’s efforts.

In an interview on Sunday, former head of Operation Warp Speed Dr. Moncef Slaoui said President Trump should be hailed for the majority of the COVID-19 vaccine rollout success. Slaoui added the Trump administration should take credit for at least 90 percent of distributions so far.

Read the whole thing. It’s not very long.

Of course the lies about this were predictable. Trump isn’t allowed to receive credit for anything.

Operation Warp Speed was an incredible success. Remember that when you get your shot. Remember who pushed it. Remember that Congress refused to fund it. Remember that funding bills start in the Democrat controlled House of Representatives.

Remember all that.

And if you still think the Democrats deserve credit for anything, you’ve lost your mind.

To Believe this I Must First Believe That There Will be a Fair Election in 2022—I have no Confidence of That Whatsoever

Biden tax hikes could open door for key GOP attack in 2022 election | Just The News

This should  be true. He’s going to destroy the economy. But since the Democrats have now perfected voter fraud, I am no longer sure it matters.

Rising gas prices. An immigration crisis at the southern border. Cancel culture. As the 2022 elections for control of Congress gear up, Republicans eager to reclaim control of part of Washington are searching for the chink in the Joe Biden Democratic armor.

Some conservatives are beginning to think the best issue on which to score points may be in the offing, when the Biden infrastructure and tax plans give Democrats their first opportunity to raise taxes.

Longtime anti-tax activist Grover Norquist said that while Biden is promising to increase taxes only on those making $400,000 or more a year, or corporations, Republicans will be able to spell out exactly how those increases will be passed down to everyday middle and working class voters.

Well, that’s definitely true. Every single American is going to feel the pain of these policies. I just wish I believed it mattered.

80 million of you voted for this.


Maybe Try Making New York More Hospitable for Businesses—Just an Idea

Schumer Begs Airline Not To Move New York Jobs To Florida (thegatewaypundit.com)

The senior New York senator said he made his case on a phone call with JetBlue Chief Executive Robin Hayes Wednesday evening — a day after The Post exclusively reported that the carrier was considering whether to move some jobs from its Long Island City headquarters to existing offices in the Sunshine State.

On Thursday, Schumer told The Post he wanted to remind Hayes that “JetBlue’s roots and its future are here in New York.” He also pointed out the billions of dollars in federal aid that airlines like it have received during the coronavirus crisis.

That last sounds a little bit like extortion to me.

But businesses go from poor environments to better ones. That should be a hint to anyone thinking of raising corporate taxes.

Of Course They Did

Instagram deletes post of President Biden falling up the stairs under its "violence and incitement" policy (reclaimthenet.org)

Because clearly a video of the President falling is “incitement to violence”.

The left will do anything to protect President Joe Biden (D-USA). Until he has outlived his usefulness.

Instagram has deleted a clip of President Joe Biden falling up the stairs of Air Force One three times, stating that it is “violence and incitement.”

The post was shared by Ashley StClair, a political commentator, along with the caption “Joe Biden vs his biggest opponent yet…stairs.”

“We removed your story because it goes against our Community Guidelines. We created these guidelines to support and protect our community on Instagram,” Instagram stated.


Uh huh.

The Agony of Defeat!

Vinko Bogataj crashes during a ski-jumping championship in Germany. Lots of people crash in ski-jumping, but Bogataj is particularly famous. His jump is “the agony of defeat” from ABC’s Wide World of Sports.

No Thanks—We Don’t Want Them

Biden Admin Weighs Flying Migrants Who Crossed Southern Border To Northern States To Be Processed: Report | The Daily Wire

As thousands of migrants continue to flock to the U.S.-Mexico border, the Biden administration is reportedly considering taking some who unlawfully entered America to facilities in northern states to be processed.

The Washington Post reported on Friday that “a new spike in the number of families and children crossing the Rio Grande into South Texas over the past several hours is forcing U.S. Customs and Border Protection to request airplanes that will allow the Biden administration to transport migrants to states near the Canadian border for processing.” The article cited two unnamed officials with the Department of Homeland Security, along with an email reviewed by the outlet.

Not that “migrants” here is a euphemism for “illegal aliens”.

If we’re going to bother to fly them some place, I suggest back across the border would be more helpful.

I Admit that I Don’t Know What Most of These Are

Does that make me a bad person?

I have one. I am not Thrilled with It

But I can manage.

Walmart has positioned itself as the biggest supporter of vaccine passports (reclaimthenet.org)

The author of the article is quite a bit more alarmed than I. I’ll let you be the judge.

When your actual passport – the one and only, for most people – a super serious piece of document issued by an actual government, based on hard facts like your nationality, place of birth, or long-term place of residence, is no longer enough to allow you to cross borders – what’s happening?

Usually, it’s because there’s a war. Any “boost” will help for sure – that sounds silly, but some people, and it’s no joke, will rely on a US supermarket chain to “boost their credentials” in this area.

Apparently, in the US, the serious business of administering the rushed-to-market Covid vaccines is also being done in Walmart and Sam’s Club stores. But that’s not all folks – now these retail establishments will be allowed to issue Covid “passports” of their own, verifying that the person with their app on their smartphone is eligible to board a plane out of Dodge – or if they must stay, enter school premises.

The author is hyperventilating a little, me thinks. Notice the phrase “rushed-to-market”, and there’s more.

To people outside the US it might actually be shocking to learn that Walmart got its foot in the door as an “administrator” of these vaccines, let alone that it will now have a say in determining who gets the “passport” and can therefore travel freely.

Frankly I doubt there’s more than a dozen people outside of the US who care about this. This kind of thing is going on everywhere. Is it unfortunate? Probably. Loss of privacy has been an ongoing thing though since we entered the digital age. The China virus may have accelerated that a little, but this is nothing new. And this is hardly the worst thing to be wringing ones hands over due to the China Virus.
