MSNBC hires Lisa Page as legal analyst

June 6, 2020

  Lisa Page–who is most famous for being fired from Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation for political bias and for working with her lover and Andrew McCabe on an “insurance policy” to make sure Donald Trump never became President–has a new gig. She has been hired by MSNBC as their new legal analyst.

  Here is more:

Lisa Page, the former FBI lawyer who worked on former special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, has joined MSNBC as a legal analyst, the network announced Friday.

Page was thrust into the national spotlight after she and FBI counterintelligence agent Andrew Strzok were fired from Mueller’s team after text messages between them were leaked in which they criticized President Trump

She swiftly emerged as a chief GOP boogeyman, with Republicans saying her texts with Strzok were evidence that elements of the Justice Department were trying to impede Trump’s presidency.

  How ironic is it that the woman who once coordinated a “media leak strategy” with her boyfriend Peter Strzok to get Russia investigation information out into the public is now part of the media?

Charlamagne tha god says Joe Biden’s Senate record ‘reflects very racist legislation’

June 3, 2020

  During an interview last week with Charlamagne tha god Joe Biden informed the host that if he, and presumable any black person, did not vote for him “you ain’t black.” To me thinking that all people of color must think, feel, and act the same is enforcing stereotypes and quite frankly I found the comment to be racist.

  While the mainstream media is mostly ignoring the story, Joe Biden has taken quite a hit on social media over the last several days and Charlamagne tha god, who was taken aback by the comment, still is not giving Joe Biden a break. Today he claimed Joe Biden’s legislative record in the Senate is racist, here is more:

“To me, it’s like this; if Barack Obama was JFK, then Joe Biden needs to be Lyndon B. Johnson. You know, he has the opportunity to be as progressive as Lyndon B. Johnson. Lyndon B. Johnson may have been labeled a racist, but his record doesn’t reflect that. LBJ’s record showed that he had, like, the most effective progressive record on race and class of any Democratic president of the past 80 years. I think, you know, Biden’s record in the Senate actually reflects very racist legislation, but he has a chance to correct that by doing right by black people.”

  Okay, so Charlamagne tha god is cutting Joe Biden a bit of a break by giving him a chance to correct a “very racist” legislative record when in any other case there would be calls for Joe Biden to step down. How can anybody look at Joe Biden’s record, conclude it is very racist, and then decide to vote for him anyway hoping that it will be different this time around? That is a huge benefit of the doubt which is not afforded too many people in politics…

Andrew Cuomo unhappy with Bill de Blasio’s handling of riots, threatens to remove him from office

June 2, 2020

According to this story New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is none too happy with the performance of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio in handling the riots the other night in the city. The Governor, who probably relished the idea of a distraction from his disastrous nursing home directive, had some harsh words for the Mayor–going so far as to threaten to remove him as Mayor and replacing him with military rule. Here is more:

In his daily press briefing, Cuomo issued stinging criticism of De Blasio and the New York Police Department, saying Monday evening’s failed attempt to quell violence unrest was “inexcusable.”

“The NYPD and New York City mayor did not do their job last night,” Cuomo said. “I think the mayor underestimates the scope of the problem and the duration of the problem. What happened in NYC was inexcusable.”

The governor explained that he offered cities around the state, including the Big Apple, help from the National Guard to stop looting, but De Blasio rejected the offer.

“My option is to displace the mayor of New York City and bring in the National Guard as the governor in an emergency and basically you would have to take over the mayor’s job,” Cuomo then explained. 

  AntifaAndrew Cuomo quickly backtracked and said it would not make any sense to make that move, but make no mistake about it, this was a harsh rebuke intended to be a threat to shame Bill de Blasio into action.

 The problem for all these politicians is they are afraid to say or to do anything which might upset the people who are destroying cities all across the United States, and Antifa–which came out of the woodwork after two months of not fighting the 35 fascist Governors in the country who put millions of Americans on house arrest and out of work, showing us what their true agenda is–knows this is the case and are taking full advantage of it.

Joe Biden says cops should shoot people in the legs

June 1, 2020

  The last time we heard from Joe Biden on guns it was 2013 and he was advising his wife and others to break the law by firing a shotgun recklessly into the air without aiming in order to ward off home intruders. Here is what he said:

I said, Jill, if there’s ever a problem just walk out on the balcony here or walk out, put that double-barreled shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house,” Biden said. “I promise you who ever is coming in is not go — you don’t need an AR-15

  As you can read if you follow the link a man actually tried to use the “Biden Defense” in court when he took the former Vice-President’s advice. It did not work, he was convicted.

  Well, good ole Uncle Joe is at it again, this time he wants police officers to shoot people in the legs. Here is more:

Former Vice President and presumptive 2020 Democratic candidate Joe Biden recommended that police should be trained to shoot knife-wielding suspects in the leg — not the heart — in order to avoid fatal incidents like the death of George Floyd.

  Timeout. George Floyd was not shot, I am not sure if Joe Biden made this inference or if this is article conflating George Floyd’s death with Joe Biden’s speech on the police. Okay, back to the story:

As Biden spoke from a church on Monday, he said that his administration would set up a police oversight board in the first 100 days, which would be used in part to re-evaluate how officers are trained to deal with people. “There are a lot of different things that can change” about police training, Biden said as he came up with a hypothetical about what cops should do while arresting a man.

“Instead of standing there and teaching a cop when there’s an unarmed person coming at ’em with a knife or something to shoot ’em in the leg instead of the heart is a very different thing,” he said.

  Texas TwistFirst of all, if a person is charging at a police officer with “a knife or something” that man is not unarmed. And what is this “something” Joe Biden is referring to? Most of us realize how silly this comment is on its face. Life is not an old movie where a person shoots the guns out of the bad guy’s hands, in a real life or death situation a person must fire at center mass if they want to neutralize the threat. If Joe Biden wants to make the argument that police need better training at identifying a potentially deadly situation that is a debate we can have, but once the situation has been identified all bets are off and it is survival mode.

  And of course there is a major artery that travels through the leg so a non-lethal shot is not a guarantee and neither is a shot in the chest. You have to go with the highest probability if your life is in danger, plus the chances are greater of hitting an innocent bystander if you start shooting at a perpetrator’s feet.

  Every time Joe Biden speaks on firearms–remember he wanted to ban magazines that hold more than one bullet–he shows us his ignorance on this subject.

Supreme Court rules in favor of California church restrictions

May 30, 2020

  We were starting to see a string of victories in the courts over restrictions put in place by the States during the COVID-19 pandemic. I say “were” because the Supreme Court ended the streak when John Roberts sided with the liberals to rule in favor of California’s restrictions on church services. Here is more:

The Supreme Court late Friday rejected a California church’s challenge of the state’s new pandemic-related rules on worship services, with Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. joining the court’s liberals in the 5-to-4 vote.

Roberts wrote that state officials such as California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) had leeway to impose restrictions to prevent the spread of coronavirus, and had not singled out places of worship for unfair treatment.

“The notion that it is ‘indisputably clear’ that the government’s limitations are unconstitutional seems quite improbable,” Roberts wrote. 

  And there you have it, apparently because all of our Constitutional rights are being stepped on and violated equally then stopping Americans from attending worship services is okay according to John Roberts.

  This is some of what Brett Kavanaugh had to say in his dissent:

“California’s latest safety guidelines discriminate against places of worship and in favor of comparable secular businesses,” wrote Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh. “Such discrimination violates the First Amendment.”

  boot_stampingThat seems fairly obvious to me, especially considering the churches would have been following the same exact protocols other places which are allowed to be open are following, but what do I know?

  So the question I have at this point is, what is to stop these States from continuing to extend these emergency declarations into perpetuity and permanently stomping on our rights if we cannot trust the Supreme Court to put an end to this? If you do not think this is possible remember  we have already seen the emergency declarations which were only supposed to be for two weeks extended into two months and beyond. California, Ohio, Oregon, and there could be other States, have already extended the emergency declarations into July and I suspect it will be even longer.

  I suspect this is only the beginning and we do not have the Supreme Court to back us up…

New Mexico Governor breaks her own COVID-19 shutdown order to buy jewelry

May 27, 2020

  More and more people are beginning to fight back against the stay-at-home orders now that the nicer weather is getting here, so naturally our elected officials are taken aback by people who are not simply falling in line. We have heard politician after politician lecture us on the importance of doing what they tell us to do during the COVID-19 pandemic. Wear a mask, social conditioning, wear gloves, wash your hands, all non-essential businesses are to close, go out only to by essentials from big businesses, and all non-essential activities are off limits…

  But of course while lecturing us on how to behave if we do not want to be guilty of murdering our fellow Americans our so-called leaders do not feel they have to abide by the same laws. We recently saw Governor Northam out in public not wearing a mask and not social conditioning, and then yesterday Governor Whitmer’s husband tried to cut in line to get his boat in the water because he is special and did not think he had to abide by the same restrictive rules his wife put in place, and now we have learned that New Mexico Governor Grisham broke her own lock down order so she could go buy some essential jewelry. Here is more:

Did Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham play by her own rules during the public health order? KRQE News 13 has learned in April, when she ordered non-essential businesses to shut down and lectured all New Mexicans to stay home, a non-essential business opened up so she could buy jewelry and have it delivered to her.

In early April, Gov. Lujan Grisham stressed that New Mexicans needed to stay home and should only go out for essential items such as food. She also announced that all non-essential businesses were closed. “We are in really tough financial times as a state. It mirrors the incredible, personal sacrifices that happen every single day because people have limited their ability to work, telecommuting and many people, in fact, have lost their jobs,” said Gov. Lujan Grisham on April 3rd.

However, just days after the April 3rd news conference and a week before Easter, KRQE News 13 has learned that Gov. Lujan Grisham called an employee at Lilly Barrack on Paseo to buy expensive jewelry. The jewelry was bought over the phone, but the employee went to the store, got the jewelry and placed it outside the door of the store where someone who knew the governor picked it up. This is according to the person who runs Lilly Barrack stores.

  The Governor is not denying the story, however she is saying it was permissible because the transaction was contactless, however curbside service was also banned so her story quickly changed and she is now claiming the jewelry was delivered to her house. Either way, she obviously did not adhere to her admonition that people only buy essential products and here we have another politician who thinks the laws only apply to the plebeians.
