Reprint. Dem congressman chides progressives for provoking anti-Semitism by calling Israel ‘apartheid state. Feels good to see someone from the left bitch slap their own.

A Democratic congressman called out his progressive colleagues for provoking anti-Semitism by referring to Israel as “a terrorist or apartheid state.”

During a CNN interview on Monday, Rep. Dean Phillips, D-Minn., was asked if he had conversed with any of his fellow progressive lawmakers regarding his previous tweet, which called out their “silence” on condemning anti-Semitic attacks

Phillips, who is Jewish, said he’s “never had to stand up in this way” throughout his life and that “these are the times” his grandparents and great-grandparents cautioned him about growing up.

The Minnesota Democrat said that there was a “problem on the right” regarding anti-Semitism while referencing Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., before noting that America was now “seeing attacks from the left.”

“And just as the former president called COVID the ‘China flu’ — which wrote the tax on Asian-Americans — calling Israel a terrorist state or an apartheid state, to me, is doing the same thing to the Jewish community, which has been persecuted for so many generations,” Phillips said.

The Democratic congressman said it was “time to stand up” and called on his progressive colleagues “to recognize what is at stake here.”

The two-term congressman called out his progressive colleagues on social media for not showing the same amount of “vigor” in pushing back against anti-Semitic attacks as they do other “areas of activism.” The tweet, posted last week, was seen as a thinly-veiled shot at the “Squad,” – the small group of progressive House members who have a history of making anti-Israel comments.

Reprint. Court Rules Efforts To Recall Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer Can Proceed.

Views: 32

Original article can be found here.


An effort to recall Governor Gretchen Whitmer can proceed, but it’ll be an uphill climb to get enough signatures to get the recall effort on the ballot.

The bipartisan Board of State Canvassers unanimously approved the petition language Monday.

Albion resident Chad Baase is behind the petition.

He’s pushing to recall Governor Whitmer because of an executive order she signed in March that had temporally suspended non-essential businesses and activities. The petition lists eight other executive orders signed during the COVID-19 pandemic that Baase says are illegal.

Baase’s group, the Committee to Recall Governor Gretchen Whitmer, only has 60 days to collect 1 million signatures to get the recall effort on the ballot.

Whitmer’s campaign team called the petition a, “baseless partisan attack,” and said in a statement that she’ll fight the petition aggressively while, “staying focused on protecting Michigan families from the spread of COVID-19.”

So Joe never did break off his friendship with Putin. Russian lobbyist donates to the Biden campaign.

So Joe never did break off his friendship with Putin. Russian lobbyist donates to the Biden campaign. Remember when Biden dumped the Russians for the Chinese cause they wouldn’t give his son a job and the Chinese did? Well I guess all’s forgiven. This from the NY Post.

President Biden and his allies raked in campaign cash from a top Russia lobbyist in 2020, just months before his administration’s decision to scrap sanctions on a controversial firm building a Russian oil pipeline to Germany.

Richard Burt, a managing partner at McLarty Associates and a former US ambassador to Germany during the Reagan administration, ponied up $4,000 for Joe Biden in October 2020 and dropped another $10,000 in the lefty-aligned political action committee Unite The County in March 2020, FEC records show.

How sad that Joe would forget History.

How sad that Joe would forget History. Sorry Joe, CBS indirectly says that you lied. First, did you forget what happened on 911?  Also how about five other attacks on the capitol? One of them we had Five congressmen — Republicans Alvin Bentley and Ben Jensen, and Democrats Clifford Davis, George Hyde Fallon and Kenneth Roberts — were injured by gunfire. Bentley was the most seriously injured and required numerous surgeries.


One was Obama’s old friends from the Weather Underground. But Joe for some reason forgets history. Below are the dates. All after the Civil War.

Three sticks of dynamite — July 2, 1915

Puerto Rican nationalists attack Congress — March 1, 1954

Bombing in protest of U.S. military in Laos — March 1, 1971

Armed Resistance Unit bombing — Nov. 7, 1983

On July 24, 1998, Russell Eugene Weston, Jr. burst into the Capitol and opened fire, killing two Capitol Police officers, Jacob Chestnut and John Gibson. Weston’s motives remain unknown and he faced murder charges for the shootings. However, he was committed in a mental institution with paranoid schizophrenia.


For some reason the MSM just let’s Joe say these loony tune things.

Reprint. Takes two to replace Rush Limbaugh.

Reprint. Takes two to replace Rush Limbaugh. Yes we will see two gentlemen replacing Rush.

Conservative talk radio icon Rush Limbaugh’s replacements have finally been announced, and are being dubbed, “an evolution of the show with fresh voices.”

Clay Travis, a 42-year-old sports commentator and analyst with Fox Sports, and Buck Sexton, a 39-year-old political commentator and former CIA officer, will come together to host “The Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show” from noon to 3 p.m. EST on weekdays, distributor Premiere Networks confirmed Thursday.

“We’re not going to replace Rush Limbaugh, we’re going to have an evolution of the show with fresh voices — those that grew up on Rush and admired him,” Premiere Networks president Julie Talbott said in a statement.

News of the new program, which will begin airing June 21, was first reported by the Wall Street Journal.

Speaking about the program, and the big shoes Limbaugh left to fill, Travis and Sexton both said in statements that they would usher in the next generation of talk radio.

“Rush’s connection with his audience is one of the primary legacies of his show,” Travis said. “I also think Buck and I have the unique ability to offer a perspective that many people in their 20s and 30s are desperate to hear.”

“The most dominant talk radio hosts have been from one generation; Clay and I represent the next phase. We’re going to bring the perspective of two guys who see a country they’re deeply worried about, and a massive audience that needs people who will speak for them,” Sexton added.

Limbaugh passed at age 70 from lung cancer in February, was still being listened to on a daily basis by his listeners after his passing.

Over his decades on the airwaves, Limbaugh galvanized listeners with his blunt assessments of the social and political landscape and his penchant for sarcasm.

His work influenced the likes of Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly and countless other conservative commentators.

So what’s up beside crime and mass shootings under Joe? Some on the left say the stock market is up, but not so fast. It’s been a roller coaster since January. Also the rise in inflation, Joe’s got that one also.

We have this from a new national poll.

Seventy-three percent of Americans believe crime is higher now under President Joe Biden than under former President Trump in 2020.

“Majorities think crime is increasing both nationally (73 percent say there is “more” crime), as well as in their local communities (54 percent),” according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday.

You sure Obama isn’t still President? Biden looks abroad for electric vehicle metals, in blow to U.S. miners. We will never forget how Obama created millions of jobs in China and Mexico. His famous words were that  manufacturing obs were a thing of the past in the United States. Well Joe’s going to continue the Obama ways.

Joe said we would be world leaders in the building of Electric Vehicles. Part left out was that those metals used, would come from countries overseas. Joe’s friends in Canada, Australia, Brazil and others.

US mines and American workers would be left out of these good paying jobs. Why? Joe’s payback o the Environmental terrorist groups. According to Reuters, look what’s going on under Joe.

The U.S. government in April became the largest shareholder in mining investment firm TechMet, which controls a Brazilian nickel project, a Rwandan tungsten mine and is a major investor in a Canadian battery recycler.

Washington also funds research into Canadian cobalt projects and rare earths projects in Malawi, among other international investments.

Flag promoting racism, bigotry, and hate will fly at US Embassies and Consulates.

Flag promoting racism, bigotry, and hate will fly  at US Embassies and Consulates. This is a new low. 1st to honor a career criminal on the anniversary of his accidental death during a justified arrest. And second to fly a noted hate groups flag at our embassies and consulates. We have this from Gateway Pundit.

A source within the Biden State Department wishing to remain anonymous has shared with Human Events News a document that indicates that all U.S. “Diplomatic and Consular posts” are being encouraged to display shows of support for Black Lives Matter on Tuesday, May 25, the one-year anniversary of George Floyd’s death. The memo reads in part, “The Department supports the use of the term ‘Black Lives Matter’ in messaging content, speeches, and other diplomatic engagements with foreign audiences to advance racial equity and access to justice on May 25 and beyond (italics added) We encourage posts to focus on the need to eliminate systemic racism and its continued impact.”

Despite the documented actions of BLM protesters during the riots of 2020, and despite the New York Times reporting on their organization’s declining popularity with American voters, our federal  government has nonetheless decided to endorse and promote an organization with admitted Marxist roots as one having ties to our official foreign offices.

I think I’m going to be sick.

Reprint. Welfare for the Rich.

Reprint. Welfare for the Rich. How funny is this?

Congress passed the $2.2 trillion Heroes Act.

House Democrats said it gives money to “governments who desperately need funds.”

But it also gives lots of money to people who don’t need funds.

Maryland, which even The Washington Post admits is “flush with cash,” got enough extra money to pass a budget that “hands bonuses to every state worker.” 

Even Atherton, California, where the median home price is $6 million, got Heroes Act money.

“There was no means test!” complains Lisa Conyers, author of Welfare for the Rich, in my latest video.

Omni Hotels & Resorts received $68 million in loans. Major airlines got $25 billion in loans from the CARES Act.

“Who wouldn’t like to play Santa Claus?” asks Conyers. “Who wouldn’t like to just be able to give everybody some money?”

Welfare for the rich didn’t start with coronavirus relief bills. Politicians have done it for years, and a pandemic didn’t stop them.

Nevada politicians gave Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis $750 million for a new stadium. A stadium designer says Davis insisted on the very best, including natural grass on a field that “moves in and out of the building in one piece.”

Cool. But why didn’t Davis pay for it himself?

“I’m not a billionaire,” he said.

But he is… The team is valued at more than $3 billion, and Davis and his mom co-own 47% of it.

Politicians screw taxpayers to build stadiums for lots of rich people.

Minnesota gave the Minnesota Vikings $348 million for their new stadium. Santa Clara, California, gave the San Francisco 49ers $114 million, plus $850 million in loans. Team co-owner Denise York and her family are worth $3.5 billion, says Forbes. She ought to fund her own stadium.

“The taxpayers often vote for this stuff,” I say to Conyers, “so they must like it.”

“They’re promised there’s going to be all these jobs,” she replies, “not only at the stadium but at the hotels that are going to rise up around the stadium.”

Politicians always promise that public investment will return more in benefits to taxpayers. But it’s not true…

A study by the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City found new stadiums bring in about $40 million in jobs and tax benefits, much less than the $188 million that taxpayers pay.

Handouts to other corporations fare no better.

Ohio politicians gave General Motors millions in tax credits to keep its Lordstown plant open. GM then closed the plant. Politicians let GM keep a third of the money. 

Wisconsin gave nearly $3 billion in tax breaks to Foxconn because it promised to create 13,000 jobs. Now the company promises to create only 1,454.

“If you look at the cost of each job, it was a million dollars,” Conyers points out.

Actually, it was more than a million.

Politicians often justify this corporate welfare by saying, “We didn’t give cash, just tax breaks.”

But “If some big company is in that town and they are not paying property tax, that means every other taxpayer is covering for them,” Conyers points out. “(F)ire departments still have to be paid for. Police departments still have to be paid for. Schools still have to be paid for!”

Then there’s the farm subsidy scam.

Both Republicans and Democrats eagerly give your money to agribusiness, even though farmers are now richer than the average American.

The politicians claim the handouts are not a payoff for political contributions but to “make sure there’s enough food to go around,” since “farmers have no control over price fluctuations and the weather.”

But that’s absurd. Other businesses adjust to price fluctuations and weather. America doesn’t subsidize fruit and vegetable farmers – yet we have plenty of fruits and vegetables.

The politicians claim they want to help “small family farms,” but they give 90% of the subsidies to the biggest farms.

Such welfare for the rich persists because, years ago, politicians voted for a handout, and once they start giving your money away, they never stop.

“I’m an American taxpayer,” says Conyers. “I don’t understand why money is leaving my pocket and going into the pocket of somebody who is wealthy.”

Me either.

Say It Ain’t So Joe! Why did the CDC stop the count? Close to 190,000 in U.S. Died from Coronavirus in Joe Biden’s First Four Months in Office.

Say It Ain’t So Joe! Why did the CDC stop the count? This from John Hopkins. Close to 190,000 in U.S. Died from Coronavirus in Joe Biden’s First Four Months in Office.  Now we know why the CDC changed the count. And Scientists are upset. So Joe and the fauch added almost 190,000 COVID-19 deaths under their watch. And that’s with the vaccine.

At the end of April, 9,245 Americans were reported to be infected by the coronavirus after being vaccinated, Bloomberg adds, while pointing out the overall percentage is small as 95 million Americans have been fully vaccinated so far.

Regardless, the number of “breakthrough” coronavirus infections (cases among fully vaccinated people) will be skewed moving forward, given that only cases resulting in hospitalization and death will be counted.

Michael Kinch, a former drug developer who’s now associate vice chancellor at Washington University in St. Louis, says as much information as possible should be recorded on breakthroughs. Cases that don’t rise to hospitalization are still important to track, he said, since symptoms that aren’t as severe for someone could eventually lead to hospitalizations. Non-life-threatening symptoms can impact someone’s life greatly, and evolve over time, Kinch said.

“It’s essential that we stay on top of this,” he added. “If we let our guard our down, we will pay the price.”
