You’ve Given Too Many People the ‘Margaret Sanger Award’ To Distance Yourselves Now

Planned Parenthood Admits They Need To ‘Reckon’ With Founder Margaret Sanger’s ‘Legacy’ On Race (lifezette.com)

She was a racist and believed in eugenics and the reason she founded Planned Parenthood was to destroy the Black race.

That’s the founding principle of the organization. You can’t hide from it.

Vice President Walter Mondale (D-USA) R.I.P.

Sorry to hear of his death.

Former Vice President Walter Mondale dies at 93 – Axios

We’d be better off if the modern Democratic party was full of Walter Mondales. He never became President, and he would not have been a good one, if he had. But he would have been a better one than some of the choices the Democrats have given us.

Rest in peace, Mr. Vice President.

Chairmanship? Seriously? She Needs To Go to Prison

McCarthy Moves To Censure Waters For Inciting ‘Violence,’ Could Cost Waters Chairmanship | The Daily Wire

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy announced on Monday that he will move to censure Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters (CA) for allegedly inciting violence with remarks that she made over the weekend.

“This weekend in Minnesota, Maxine Waters broke the law by violating curfew and then incited violence. Increased unrest has already led to violence against law enforcement and her comments intentionally poured fuel on the fire,” McCarthy said in a statement. “We’ve heard this type of violent rhetoric from Waters before, and the United States Congress must clearly and without reservation reprimand this behavior before more people get hurt. But Speaker Pelosi is ignoring Waters’ behavior. That’s why I am introducing a resolution to censure Rep. Waters for these dangerous comments, and I hope that all my colleagues – both Republican and Democrat – will stand up for peace on America’s streets.”

I’m really curious to see if any Democrats break ranks on this one. I’d like to know if there is anyone on the left side of the aisle that deserves respect. Right now I’m betting against it.

You Impeached a President for Less, You Hypocrite

Pelosi On Whether Maxine Waters Should Apologize For Alleged Incitement: ‘I Don’t Think She Should’ | The Daily Wire

Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA) said on Monday that Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) should not apologize for highly controversial remarks that she made over the weekend that were widely condemned as incitement and have prompted calls that Waters be removed from her committee assignments.

“Pelosi says she doesn’t think Waters should apologize for her remarks about confrontation after the Chauvin verdict,” Fox News reported. “Pelosi also said she didn’t think Waters [sic] comments would incite violence.”

These people have no shame whatsoever. This is actual incitement. You impeached a President over pretend incitement.

I agree, though. Waters shouldn’t apologize. I wouldn’t believe her if she did. She should be expelled from Congress.


Thanks, But I’ll Keep Saying “Illegal Aliens”

If you don’t like that, I can also use the word “Invaders”. Those are your two options.

Biden Bans "Illegal Aliens" Not the Activity, Just That Term – PJ Media

Biden is dealing with the worst border crisis in decades, a crisis he has no small part in creating, and his solution is to stop using a perfectly descriptive term. That’s the problem right there, you see. It’s not that the term is offensive. People can and will be offended about anything and everything. It’s that the term succinctly and accurately describes the problem.

Yes, what we call them is clearly the most important problem right now. Not that we have people living in conditions that you wouldn’t wish upon your worst enemies.

Positively Revolting

But then we know from Project Veritas that CNN isn’t really a news organization, they are the propaganda arm for the Democratic Party.

WATCH: CNN defends Maxine Waters incitement of violence against police | The Post Millennial

One guest on the program, Matthew Dowd, said effectively that he considered Waters to be above criticism.

"I actually just listened to Maxine Waters. We all have to be cognizant of what we say. I don't think what she said in anyway should, we should criticize her for. Of course, we should be more confrontational. That doesn't mean we should be more violent," he said.

It’s clear that they would not have been nearly as forgiving regarding the same words from President Donald Trump (R-USA). Media bias is one thing. This goes way beyond that. The FEC should examine their books and fine them for unlawful contributions to the Democratic Party.

This is Actual Incitement

Maxine Waters urges Minnesota protesters to 'stay on the street' if Chauvin acquitted in Floyd case | Fox News

Asked about the Derek Chauvin murder trial in Minneapolis, Waters told reporters if the former police officer isn't found guilty of murdering George Floyd, "We've got to stay on the street and we've got to get more active, we've got to get more confrontational. We've got to make sure that they know that we mean business."

She’s from California. Why is she in Minnesota, anyway??

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is right about her:

And here’s the result:

BREAKING: Minnesota National Guard Shot At Just Hours After Maxine Waters Incited Violence - National File

“A Minnesota National Guard and Minneapolis Police team were fired upon by a light colored SUV early Sunday Morning,” said Lt. Col. Scott Hawks. “Two National Guard members did sustain minor injuries from the incident. One National Guard member was taken to a hospital to receive care for lacerations from shattered glass.”

The attack took place around 4:19 a.m. as soldiers and police provided security in the area of West Broadway and Penn avenue. “This event highlights the volatility and tension in our communities right now. I ask for peace as we work through this difficult time,” said Maj. Gen. Shawn Manke, Minnesota National Guard Adjutant General.

And I agree with Rep. Marjorie Taylor-Greene (R-GA-14):

MTG To Introduce Resolution To Expel Maxine Waters From Congress for Her ‘Incitement of Violence’ (ijr.com)

Now, the Georgia Congresswoman is planning to introduce a resolution to expel Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) from Congress after a video surfaced of her saying that protesters need to “stay on the street” and “get more active” if former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin is not found guilty of murdering George Floyd.

In series of tweets on Sunday, she wrote, “Very soon I’ll be introducing a resolution to expel [Maxine Waters] from Congress for her continual incitement of violence on innocent American people. Rep Waters is a danger to our society.”

She needs to be forcibly removed from Congress and thrown in prison.

The New York Post agrees.

Impeach and remove Maxine Waters (nypost.com)

Now. She should not serve another day in Congress.

In supporting the second impeachment of President Trump, California Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters said he was “inciting” his followers, and was “trying to create a Civil War.”

By her own standards, Maxine Waters should be impeached and removed.

On Sunday in Minnesota, Waters, breaking the law by violating curfew (because “she didn’t agree with it”) said that if ex-police officer Derek Chauvin is not found guilty of murdering George Floyd, “We’ve got to get more confrontational.”

There’s been rioting, looting, graffiti — what did Waters mean by “more confrontational?” In Portland, they set fire to an Apple store. They’re trying to take over government buildings.

She is way over the line. She’s so far past the line she can’t even see the line anymore.

She needs to be expelled. If the Democrats aren’t complete hypocrites (ha!) she will be. First thing tomorrow.


There’s Always a “Yes, But…”

CDC: Half of US adults have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose | TheHill

Great news.

Roughly half of U.S. adults have received at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released Saturday.

Across the country, more than 128 million people ages 18 and older have received at least one shot, with more than 82 million fully vaccinated with one of the three vaccines approved for emergency use in the U.S., the CDC said.

Overall, 49.7 percent of U.S. adults have received at least one vaccine dose, according to the data, and nearly a third are fully vaccinated.

Yes, but…

Looking at my handy-dandy spreadsheet, I see that the 7-day rolling average of cases in the U.S. reached 62,813 on April 13th. That’s after bottoming out at 47,418 on March 14th. That’s a 30% increase in a month. Not good.

Even worse, worldwide cases reached their highest 7-day rolling average of 733,613 on April 16th.

Fatalities continue to remain low in the U.S. In fact, the 7-day rolling average today was the lowest since October 10th, so that is encouraging. However, worldwide, the average is at an all-time high, just like cases.

We can see the light ahead, but we’re not out of the woods yet.

Paul Revere’s Ride!

Listen, my children, and you shall hear
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,
On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-Five:
Hardly a man is now alive
Who remembers that famous day and year.

He said to his friend, “If the British march
By land or sea from the town to-night,
Hang a lantern aloft in the belfry-arch
Of the North-Church-tower, as a signal-light,—
One if by land, and two if by sea;
And I on the opposite shore will be,
Ready to ride and spread the alarm
Through every Middlesex village and farm,
For the country-folk to be up and to arm.”

Then he said “Good night!” and with muffled oar
Silently rowed to the Charlestown shore,
Just as the moon rose over the bay,
Where swinging wide at her moorings lay
The Somerset, British man-of-war:
A phantom ship, with each mast and spar
Across the moon, like a prison-bar,
And a huge black hulk, that was magnified
By its own reflection in the tide.

Meanwhile, his friend, through alley and street
Wanders and watches with eager ears,
Till in the silence around him he hears
The muster of men at the barrack door,
The sound of arms, and the tramp of feet,
And the measured tread of the grenadiers
Marching down to their boats on the shore.

Then he climbed to the tower of the church,
Up the wooden stairs, with stealthy tread,
To the belfry-chamber overhead,
And startled the pigeons from their perch
On the sombre rafters, that round him made
Masses and moving shapes of shade,—
By the trembling ladder, steep and tall,
To the highest window in the wall,
Where he paused to listen and look down
A moment on the roofs of the town,
And the moonlight flowing over all.

Beneath, in the churchyard, lay the dead,
In their night-encampment on the hill,
Wrapped in silence so deep and still
That he could hear, like a sentinel’s tread,
The watchful night-wind, as it went
Creeping along from tent to tent,
And seeming to whisper, “All is well!”
A moment only he feels the spell
Of the place and the hour, and the secret dread
Of the lonely belfry and the dead;
For suddenly all his thoughts are bent
On a shadowy something far away,
Where the river widens to meet the bay,—
A line of black, that bends and floats
On the rising tide, like a bridge of boats.

Meanwhile, impatient to mount and ride,
Booted and spurred, with a heavy stride,
On the opposite shore walked Paul Revere.
Now he patted his horse’s side,
Now gazed on the landscape far and near,
Then impetuous stamped the earth,
And turned and tightened his saddle-girth;
But mostly he watched with eager search
The belfry-tower of the old North Church,
As it rose above the graves on the hill,
Lonely and spectral and sombre and still.
And lo! as he looks, on the belfry’s height,
A glimmer, and then a gleam of light!
He springs to the saddle, the bridle he turns,
But lingers and gazes, till full on his sight
A second lamp in the belfry burns!

A hurry of hoofs in a village-street,
A shape in the moonlight, a bulk in the dark,
And beneath from the pebbles, in passing, a spark
Struck out by a steed that flies fearless and fleet:
That was all! And yet, through the gloom and the light,
The fate of a nation was riding that night;
And the spark struck out by that steed, in his flight,
Kindled the land into flame with its heat.

He has left the village and mounted the steep,
And beneath him, tranquil and broad and deep,
Is the Mystic, meeting the ocean tides;
And under the alders, that skirt its edge,
Now soft on the sand, now loud on the ledge,
Is heard the tramp of his steed as he rides.

It was twelve by the village clock
When he crossed the bridge into Medford town.
He heard the crowing of the cock,
And the barking of the farmer’s dog,
And felt the damp of the river-fog,
That rises when the sun goes down.

It was one by the village clock,
When he galloped into Lexington.
He saw the gilded weathercock
Swim in the moonlight as he passed,
And the meeting-house windows, blank and bare,
Gaze at him with a spectral glare,
As if they already stood aghast
At the bloody work they would look upon.

It was two by the village clock,
When he came to the bridge in Concord town.
He heard the bleating of the flock,
And the twitter of birds among the trees,
And felt the breath of the morning breeze
Blowing over the meadows brown.
And one was safe and asleep in his bed
Who at the bridge would be first to fall,
Who that day would be lying dead,
Pierced by a British musket-ball.

You know the rest. In the books you have read,
How the British Regulars fired and fled,—
How the farmers gave them ball for ball,
From behind each fence and farmyard-wall,
Chasing the red-coats down the lane,
Then crossing the fields to emerge again
Under the trees at the turn of the road,
And only pausing to fire and load.

So through the night rode Paul Revere;
And so through the night went his cry of alarm
To every Middlesex village and farm,—
A cry of defiance, and not of fear,
A voice in the darkness, a knock at the door,
And a word that shall echo forevermore!
For, borne on the night-wind of the Past,
Through all our history, to the last,
In the hour of darkness and peril and need,
The people will waken and listen to hear
The hurrying hoof-beats of that steed,
And the midnight message of Paul Revere.

Remind Me to Never Go Back to Oregon

As mask mandates end, Oregon bucks trend with permanent rule (apnews.com)

A top health official is considering indefinitely extending rules requiring masks and social distancing in all businesses in the state.

The proposal would keep the rules in place until they are “no longer necessary to address the effects of the pandemic in the workplace.”

Michael Wood, administrator of the state’s department of Occupational Safety and Health, said the move is necessary to address a technicality in state law that requires a “permanent” rule to keep current restrictions from expiring.

Until it’s “no longer necessary”. That sounds like “forever” to me. I will pass. The mandate is over here in Indiana, but I’m still wearing my mask. For the moment.

Not much longer though. Practically counting the days…

Does This Mean That the AP Can Use That Word Too?

HE FINALLY DID IT! Biden Admits There's a Crisis at the Border! – PJ Media

I have no doubt that he’s been aware of the fact that the situation at the border is a crisis, and that he’s known this for some time.

However, he’s never admitted it. That is, until Saturday when he described the situation at the United States’ southern border as a “crisis” for the first time.

“We’re going to increase the number [of refugees],” Biden told reporters. “The problem was that the refugee part was working on the crisis that ended up on the border with young people. We couldn’t do two things at once. But now we are going to increase the number.”

Well, that’s a lie. This is a giant federal government. We can do ten million things at once. Does anyone even fall for this crap?

But he did call it a crisis. Finally. Notify the AP.

Associated Press denies that border crisis is a crisis | Washington Examiner

Associated Press Vice President and Editor-at-Large for Standards John Daniszewski cautioned staffers the U.S. immigration disaster does not yet meet the dictionary definition of the word “crisis.”

In an internal memo this week, titled “From the Standards Center: A note about the current increase in border entrances," Daniszewski told staffers to aim for "accurate and neutral language.”

It is a crisis. It has been a crisis. It appears to be getting worse every day.

This is a complete failure of the Biden administration.

This Is One of the Saddest Things I've Seen in a While

Queen Elizabeth all alone at the funeral for her beloved Prince Philip.

Damn China Virus. This is just wrong.

Prince Philip funeral: Queen looks upset as she sits alone due to Covid restrictions | Daily Mail Online

The Queen sat alone inside St George's Chapel today as Covid regulations forced her to be separated from her family and wear a mask.

The 94-year-old monarch cut a figure of silent dignity as she watched on while her beloved husband of 73 years was laid to rest.

Following strict social distancing rules during the pandemic, the queen set an example even in grief, sitting apart from family members arranged around the church. Other royals who are in family bubbles sat together.

Wrong. Sad. Heart-wrenching.

Twitter Isn’t Even Pretending Anymore

Paper Uses ‘Breached’ Data To Dox Police Who Donated To Innocent Colleague Targeted By BLM; Twitter Promotes | The Daily Wire

Why is that significant? Oh yeah…

British news outlet The Guardian published an article Friday, based on information from a group that specializes in trafficking hacked materials, listing the names of low-level police employees who anonymously donated to funds supporting the due process rights of colleagues who have garnered the ire of Black Lives Matter.

Twitter then put it atop its “trending” section, which is manually curated by the site – after it silenced all references to an election-eve New York Post story that was damaging to the Joe Biden campaign, claiming it violated a policy that Twitter will not promote hacked materials. There is no evidence the Hunter Biden laptop featured in the story was hacked.

See, Twitter claimed they were blocking the Post story because it was due to a “hack”, even though it clearly wasn’t.

Now we have another story, that is based upon a hack, and it’s not only not squelched, it’s promoted.

Curious, that.

Democrats Prove—Again—That Riots Are Only Bad When One Side Does Them

Gov. DeSantis Signs “Anti-Riot” Bill, Democrats Upset (lifezette.com)

But not everyone is thrilled about the new laws put in place to help protect protesters. According to Florida Sen. Daryl Rouson, who happens to be a Democrat, “This won’t stop anything, except those who are afraid. I’m not afraid. I just want to say to people, keep on knocking, keep on protesting, keep on rising in spite of an attempt to stifle voices.”

So while the Republicans are trying to protect the liberties of Americans, the Democrats are still urging for restlessness and violence although their President’s current narrative is “Unity”.

We can’t have a law that clamps down on riots unless it specifically targets “right-wing” “white supremacists”. Otherwise, it’s just a racist intimidation act that must be resisted.

That’s Because It Is

Americans Now View Biden Border Crisis As A Bigger Problem Than COVID-19 (lifezette.com)

According to a new research poll conducted by Pew Research, Americans’ concern over the crisis at the Southern Border now surpasses the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since Biden has taken office, the number of migrants being detained at the border has reached record numbers. In addition there is concern with the number of migrant children being detained in cages and the number of migrants being released into communities don’t have the resources to properly handle the influx.

The worst thing about this from President Joe Biden’s (D-USA) standpoint is that there’s no way they can pin this on Trump. I am sure they will try, but you’d have to be gullible beyond belief to fall for it.

There was no crisis before Biden took office. Biden changed policies and let everyone know he was going to have an open-door policy regarding illegal aliens, and immediately there’s a crisis. This is all on Joe.

Democrat Presidents hate it when they can’t blame things on their Republican predecessor. Obama did it for 8 years. Joe is going to try to do it too, but he can’t on this one.
