SNL Provides Its Cast With Actual Safe Space Away From Guest Host Elon Musk

https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/culture/gabriel-hays/2021/04/30/snl-provides-its-cast-actual-safe-space-away-guest-host-elon

Hmmm. Wonder what the current cast thinks of that skit (not that good or funny) of John Belushi in a pirate ship bar scene where all the ship’s pirate crew were dressed in gay black leathers. The name of the ship was ‘The Raging Queen’. The current cast has probably never seen it, being shielded from bad broken thinking and all. SNL has come a long way baby and they ain’t going back.

New phrase: Government Speech.

GLAD THEY CLEARED THAT UP
“The Rochester, Minnesota, school board has declared “Black Lives Matter” to be “government speech.” I always suspected something of the sort, but it is nice to see it made official:.....”

“I have to say that the concept of “government speech” is a new one on me. It is quite a few years now since I studied the First Amendment, but the idea of declaring an idea to be “government speech” so as to prohibit anything counter to it seems a bit sinister.”

Ever notice how racist white liberals are? Dont think they can learn or raise families and they really want them on the socialist dem plantation -

REP. BYRON DONALDS: One, there's not systemic racism in the United States. Two, the United States is not a racist country, and three, why the hell are we even listening to Joy Behar? Who is she? I don't need her to tell me about what's racist and what's not. She already had her own issues wearing blackface, I know "The View" has given her a pass but I'm not ...

You have people like her, like a lot of these White liberals, who love to demean a Black conservative because we don't go along with their ideology and that is the problem we're having. The left likes to talk about being tolerant. Well, show it now. Be tolerant. Actually listen to the words of Sen. Tim Scott, which were actually quite profound, instead of just running back to your corner and digging out "Mein Kampf" or "The Communist Manifesto" to figure out what your next talking point is going to be ...

Now i seem to remember the socialist dems promised they would flip this to blue but uh not so fast -

The runoff will be a race between two of the top candidates from the special election. Wright was followed by Republican State Rep. Jake Ellzey who carried 14.2% of the vote and Democrat Jana Lynne Sanchez who had 13.6% of the vote. The New York Times reported that the special election results could disappoint Democrats who hoped for a better showing for Sanchez.


Sanchez posted on Twitter prior to the polls opening that Democrats have a chance to flip the district and "send a true leader to Congress who’ll get things done for working families across North Texas."

For the historical record—Daily Quotes

Insight: “You can only protect your liberties in this world by protecting the other man’s freedom. You can only be free if I am free.” —Clarence S. Darrow (1857-1938)

Upright: “What the left is doing is fighting bigotry with bigotry. And they’ve exposed their hypocrisy and their true motivation. It has nothing to do with ending prejudice; it has everything to do with claiming, or getting, more power. … There’s a coming backlash to this liberal oppression that is becoming front and center and they’re not even hiding their hands anymore… That’s why it’s so important that we stand in the gap for this nation because the greatest comeback in American history is on its way.” —Senator Tim Scott

Re: Double standards: “[Tim] Scott’s most controversial statement, allegedly, was to contend that, ‘America is not a racist country.’ … Yet, the very next morning, when asked by ABC News about Scott’s comments, Vice President Kamala Harris said: ‘I don’t think America is a racist country, but we also do have to speak truth about the history of racism in our country and its existence today.’ It’s one thing to see flagrant double standards in politics, and another thing to hear two people say the same thing within 24 hours and be treated completely differently.” —David Harsanyi

The bottom line: “The left’s demeaning of any African American who strays from leftist orthodoxy is one of the ugliest acceptable smears in our political discourse.” —David Harsanyi

Re: The Left: “The left devotes tremendous resources to smearing and defeating any female and minority Republicans. They do their best to destroy conservative minority candidates, and then attack the GOP for being ‘too white.’ The left claims to stand for diversity. But it can’t stand diversity of thought. The intolerant, totalitarian left increasingly demands that everyone must think, speak, act and vote the same way.” —Gary Bauer

For the record: “Absent similar hard commitments from India, China and other developing countries, which we don’t have, Biden’s emissions targets are likely to cause pain for Americans without improving our climate situation. U.S. and European emissions are already falling. Our reduction is more than made up for by increases in emissions from China and India. Without comparable commitments from these countries, Biden’s climate target would harm America’s working class and ship American jobs overseas for no benefit besides making wealthier Americans feel better about themselves. Look at the polarization in America today. The course Biden wants to embark on is just going to increase the divisions we already face.” —Neil Patel

Political futures: “Whether it is on human sexuality, the right to life for unborn children, gun rights, immigration sanity or a host of other issues, woke capital treats the Republican Party as more of an enemy than it would ever dream of treating sadistic detention facility managers in Xinjiang, China. Republicans should stop trying to prevent the unpreventable and permit its amicable divorce from corporate America to continue apace. … The GOP’s future comes in the form of a multiracial working-class political coalition — not in the C-suite.” —Josh Hammer

Observations: “In 2009, President Barack Obama created a spontaneous, hugely influential conservative grassroots movement on the basis of an $800 billion stimulus bill and a health care plan estimated to cost less than a trillion. In 2021, Biden is proposing to spend about $6 trillion in his first three big bills, and he can barely create more interest than the debate on wearing masks outdoors.” —Rich Lowry

Friendly fire I: “While I share President Biden’s urgency in fixing our broken immigration system, what I didn’t hear [Wednesday night] was a plan to address the immediate crisis at the border, and I will continue holding this administration accountable to deliver the resources and staffing necessary for a humane, orderly process as we work to improve border security, support local economies, and fix our immigration system.” —Arizona Senator Mark Kelly

Friendly fire II: “[Governor Andrew Cuomo] should resign. I’ve been saying this for months. He can’t continue to lead. Nursing home scandal, sexual harassment and assault scandal, using his staff to write his book, I mean, it’s just — it doesn’t end. He just has to go.” —New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio

And last… “No country on Earth is as obsessed with the ‘sins’ of its past as we are. Is that because those other countries have no sins? No. Many of them have done much worse, and done it for much longer. Yet they live in the present and we stay stuck in the past. It’s absurd and pathetic.” —Matt Walsh

The CIA told Fox News it was working to confirm the shooting, which was first reported by NBC News, citing a law enforcement source. "

Now explain THIS
"The suspected intruder was stopped by armed guards but did not make it onto the compound, officials said. No shots were fired and no agency personnel were injured."

Voter fraud alert..yes it is real.....Pennsylvania man gets 5 years probation for voting fraud. Bruce Bartman, 70, received the sentence Friday after entering a guilty plea to two counts of perjury and one count of unlawful voting. Bartman will also lose his right to vote for four years. Bartman used Pennsylvania's online voter-registration portal to register both his late mother, Elizabeth Bartman, and his deceased mother-in-law, Elizabeth Weihman, who died in 2019 -- illegally registering both as Republican voters. He filled out and sent in the absentee ballot for his deceased mother for the 2020 general election which got him the unlawful voting charge. Stop the Steal...by republicans...

THE GIULIANI CORRECTIONS: GLENN GREENWALD EDITION
If I may borrow Glenn Reynolds’s formulation, I would like to say that we’ve descended into some sort of bizarre hellworld in which Glenn Greenwald is the voice of reason. In his observations on what he calls “corporate journalism,” he is also the voice of fairness and responsibility.

Over the weekend I wrote about the Giuliani corrections served up by the Washington Post, the New York Times and NBC. In his column on the corrections, Glenn Greenwald adds an important count to the indictment:

"The Biden administration will support efforts to WAIVE intellectual property protections for COVID-19 vaccines, a major step in attempts to end the pandemic as it rages in India and other parts of the world.

U.S. Trade Rep. Katherine Tai announced the decision in a Wednesday statement, amid World Trade Organization talks over easing global trade rules to enable more countries to produce more of the vaccines."

Gee, will the waiver also apply to China? Of course, there have been so many sanctions that the U.S. has imposed on China for them releasing the Wuhan virus, waiving patent protection seems the humane thing to do.

Which will be the first group, or country, to give the finger to the U.S. for developing the vax in the first place?
Will anyone thank the U.S. for giving it away? No - that was rhetorical.

Bye bye house -

Three other Democrats will leave seats vacant in districts likely to see significant change once they are redrawn using the data from the 2020 census, and several more are weighing bids for higher office.

Sign up for The Morning newsletter from the New York Times

An early trickle of retirements by House members in competitive districts is often the first sign of a coming political wave. In the 2018 cycle, 48 House Republicans didn’t seek reelection — and Democrats won 14 of those vacancies. Now Republicans are salivating over the prospect of reversing that dynamic and erasing the Democrats’ six-seat advantage.

“The two biggest headaches of any cycle are redistricting and retirements, and when you have both in one cycle it’s a migraine,” said former Rep. Steve Israel of New York, who led the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in 2012 and 2014.

Democrats face other vexing challenges as well: Republican legislators control redistricting in key states where they can draw boundaries in their favor. Redistricting alone — with Republicans controlling mapmaking in three times as many districts as Democrats — could provide Republicans the seats they need to control the House. And historic political trends almost always work against the president’s party in midterm elections.

The propaganda ministry just ignores all of the creepy grampa joe lies or his he just feeble? -

"There was an article, I guess my fourth or fifth year as vice president, saying Biden travels 1,300,000 miles on Air Force One [Two]. I used to – the Secret Service didn't like it – but I used to like to take the train home. My mom was sick and I used to try to come home almost every weekend as vice president to see her. I got on the train and Angelo Negri came up and he goes, ‘Joey, baby,’ and he grabbed my cheek like he always did. I thought he was going to get shot. I'm serious. I said, 'No, no, he's a friend.'

"He said, 'Joey, what's the big deal? 1,300,000 miles on Air Force Two? Do you know how many miles you traveled on Amtrak?' I said, 'No, Angie, I don't know.' He gave me the calculation and he said you traveled 1,500,000 miles on Amtrak. The fact is, I'd probably take Angie's word before I'd take the word of what the article said."

Biden's comments have flown under the media radar so far. However, a few elements of the story seemed out of place. Biden entered the fourth year of his term as vice president around 2013, and Negri's obituary states he retired from Amtrak in 1993, while Biden was still a senator. Meanwhile, Biden's mother, Catherine Eugenia Finnegan, died in 2010.

There goes another dem house seat -

Perhaps most importantly, Kind represents Wisconsin’s third congressional district—a battleground seat that Democrats are particularly worried they may lose should Kind decide against seeking reelection or should he lose if he faces the voters again. Former President Donald Trump won this district twice, both in 2016 and 2020, but Republicans did not flip it. Retired Navy SEAL Derrick Van Orden, who was the GOP nominee for the seat in 2020 and nearly defeated Kind last year, is running again against the endangered Democrat. Democrats are particularly afraid that Kind may decide to either retire after his decades in Congress, forgoing reelection and thereby all but surrendering the key seat to Republicans, or run for another office such as the U.S. Senate in Wisconsin, thereby also surrendering the House seat. The pressure is building on Kind to make a move, and soon, all while scandals torment the vulnerable House Democrat.

Last week, Fox News reported that Kind owns a commercial real estate development in which a tenant of his is a seedy massage parlor that advertises on websites known to law enforcement as a home of those promoting illicit sex acts and prostitution. While this particular establishment—Asian Sunny Massage—has not been accused specifically of illegal activity, local news reports indicate that police have been called to the establishment no less than seven times, including multiple occasions in the middle of the night, in less than three years of operation. Rather than dig into the reports and concerns that his tenant—from whom his financial disclosure forms indicate he received between $15,001 and $50,000 in annual rental income—may be engaged in, Kind instead turned around and baselessly and without evidence accused Van Orden of “racism” for raising concerns about potential human trafficking that might be occurring at this location.

St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner is facing a disciplinary hearing that could result in the loss of her law license.

An investigation launched in 2019 by the office of Alan Pratzel, the chief disciplinary counsel appointed by the Missouri Supreme Court, has found probable cause that Gardner committed professional misconduct during her past attempts to prosecute former Republican Gov. Eric Greitens, KMOV reported.

The case was assigned Tuesday to go before a hearing, Fox 2 reported. A state webpage published Tuesday lists Gardner's name among other cases pending before disciplinary hearing panels against Missouri lawyers.

Creepy grampa joe is lapping up the talking point but ignoring the objective reality. Is this just really about opening the books for the chi coms who failed to produce a viable vaccine -

She cautioned that it would take time to reach the required global “consensus” to waive the protections under WTO rules, and U.S. officials said it would not have an immediate effect on the global supply of COVID-19 shots.

Michael Yee, a Jefferies Group biotech analyst, wrote to investors that the key access issues for developing countries aren’t patents or price, but an inadequate supply of the materials needed and the know-how to produce the vaccines and keep quality high — which one of Johnson & Johnson’s contract manufacturers in the U.S. failed to do, ruining millions of doses.

“Manufacturing supplies, raw materials, vials, stoppers, and other key materials are in limited supply for 2021,” and may still be next year and beyond, Yee wrote. That’s partly because it takes time to make all those components, and Moderna and Pfizer have commitments to buy them “from major suppliers in huge bulk over the foreseeable future.”

He added that Pfizer previously sought authorization to sell its vaccine to India, which rejected its application and asked that additional studies be run.

Bought and paid for by the chi coms -

“The guy who now runs the Central Intelligence Agency is a long-time foreign service officer by the name of Bill Burns,” Gaffney remarked. “Bill Burns, until he took this job, ran the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Bill Burns was a guy who enabled Chinese influence operations at the Carnegie Endowment and is now, I believe, hopelessly ill-suited to be the director of our Central Intelligence Agency.”

Gaffney noted the CIA’s pushing of left-wing “identity” politics in its recent advertisements under Burns’ directorship.

“It’s not just the identity woke nonsense,” he recalled. “It’s that [Burns] seems not to have a clue about the true nature of what we’re up against [with China], but here’s the real kicker — this is the news item for your audience — Bill Burns lied to Senator Marco Rubio and the Senate Intelligence Committee when he was up for his confirmation hearing about the fact that he claimed he had shut down these influence operations which he professed to have been concerned about at the Carnegie Endowment.”

He continued, “And you know what happened? In fact, [Burns] actually allowed those to continue. Worse yet, he put a prominent Chinese influence operator on the board of trustees of the Carnegie Endowment in the period that he claims to have shut these things down.”

“Even worse than that, some of the million-plus dollars that this influence operator — a fellow by the name of Zhang Yichen — gave to the Carnegie Endowment went to set up an operation in which Carnegie partnered up with China’s MIT — its preeminent defense university — which has been found to be involved, among other things, in defense research that’s very inimical to our interests, but also actually mounting attacks — cyber attacks — against our country.”

"The State plans to provide wrap-around services as well."

No real surprise... They don't want to show how how far gone Biden is.

"White House press secretary Jen Psaki admitted in a CNN podcast published Thursday that President Joe Biden taking impromptu questions from reporters "is not something we recommend."

Psaki made the admission while being interviewed by CNN Senior Political Commentator David Axelrod on his podcast "The Axe Files," and claimed that she, at times, even tells Biden to not take questions from reporters. "

For the same reason someone else here refuses to answer questions.

Is anyone wondering why at this point in time the Russian Hoax is back and they are going after Rudy?
1) Maddow is going there, claiming that the only reason Mueller did not charge Trump is because the DOJ Office of Legal Stuff ruled that you cannot, except in certain circumstances, you cannot charge a sitting President. Russia Raquel is embarrassingly easy to debunk. Mueller’s own words under oath to the televised audience before Congress that the OLC previous ruling had no bearing on whether to convict Trump.
2) CNN and fakesnews media is beating the Trump is a threat to democracy
3) Why go after Rudy now???

My guess is that Rudy has something or there is something about Hunter and Joe on his laptop and the ugly Deep State wants to squash it and flip it to accuse everything they are actually doing on the R’s or Trump. Big buildup starting. It’s their consistent MO, and they are quite good at it.

Their is something coming down the pike that may really embarrass quite a few known names if it ever sees daylight. What does Rudy know? What did John Solomon find out first? I warned the Lefties about opening the Ukrainian Pandora’s Box. It’s a bad can of worms. But, they just had to go there.

One thing the Left does and does well is always go on offense and leave the hapless R’s to go on defense.

Accuse Trump of trying to steal the 2016 election why they were firing on all cylinders to steal it. Accuse Trump of withholding weapons to Ukraine as we got Quid Pro Joe on video tape boasting about threatening to without all aide to Ukraine if they don’t fire the prosecutor who is investigating his son...and George Soros.

Something is coming down the pike and they are going on offense. I have little faith that it is tied to the Durham report, but could be. I have lowered my expectations that it would be made public anyway. Too many powerful heads would also be ‘greatly embarrassed.’

Why bring up Mueller, Ukraine, and Trump now? They are on offense. Election was.in Nov, the Electoral College met in Dec and now it’s May. Something is up. Maybe the former News Misdirector can man splain it to us. Don’t think Russian Raquel cares about CNN’s ratings cratering. They sure are acting like they always do. That is they are acting like they have something to hide. Wanna talk about the border, abortion on demand, the state of our Navy, runaway inflation knocking at the door? No? I did not think so.

Speaking of runaway inflation, did anyone else find it ironic that Biden went to see Mr. Misery Index Jimmy Carter. I do remember folks paying 14% on their mortgage...plus points! Jimmy the peanut farmer. And, President Biden, the man who always wears a mask even on zoom calls to set a good example, went to see old frail Jimmy and fragile Rosinen and took photos of the Prez not wearing a mask sitting almost cheek to cheek with the most vulnerable of our population.

Bill Speaking of the (stolen) election,, the DOJ is REALLY REALLY concerned..(that they will find something)

The only ones who might be "intimidated",, are the fraudsters.
"The Department of Justice expressed concern that the ongoing audit of 2020 election results in Arizona may violate election law and lead to voter intimidation."

‘FBI’s Failed Ron Johnson Set-Up A Case Study In How Agencies Use Corrupt Reporters To Peddle Lies, Hurt Their American Enemies’
For years now, a number of the country's most prominent publications have assumed the groveling role of palace guards for the state and its friends in Congress.

“The Washington Post gave its readers a clear-eyed view this weekend of how American intel agencies work with sympathetic reporters to smear and discredit political opponents, ignoring a specific explanation from one of the article’s targets of how reporters were being used, and leading to embarrassing corrections in multiple articles (as well as in The New York Times and at NBC News).

The story targeted Rudy Giuliani and Wisconsin’s Sen. Ron Johnson, excitedly reporting that they were the targets of Russian disinformation campaigns and had been warned of this by the FBI. Sound familiar? Unsurprisingly, there were a number of problems.

“First, powerful people across the planet are often the targets of foreign disinformation campaigns; this is normal. Second, powerful intel agencies have a history of conducting briefings solely to create records that can then be leaked to sympathetic reporters in order to generate stories about said threats. Third, there were no actionable specifics in the Johnson briefing, as the senator explained to the Post, generating strong evidence for his suspicion the FBI was setting him up. And fourth, well, the big Giuliani briefing didn’t actually happen at all.”

‘Climate Of Fear? Colleagues Silent On CDC Retaliation Against ‘Superstar’ Scientist Who Tried To Prevent Vaccine ‘Pause’ Disaster’

Bison cull on the North Rim:
45,000 applications for 12 slots to shoot bison on the Grand Canyon's North Rim.

Well, our government’s left hand sure doesn’t know what the right hand is doing. On the one hand, it took 3-1/2 years to truck (or maybe bicycle?? – after all, no motorized vehicles allowed!!) 90 unaccompanied bison from the North Rim. Yet our border patrol moves 100s of unaccompanied, illegal alien children DAILY, from the border to points north.

Now there is a cull for the bison scheduled this fall – 12 hunters (oops – cullers) will be used to eventually trim the B-herd from 300-500 down to 200. Only one bison per culler allowed, no pack animal or vehicle can be used to bring the dead bison out (although there might be one die-hard PETA member who wants to lasso and lead one of 'em out). Between the trucking and culling, how long will it take to get the herd to 200? If you say ‘forever’ as a first guess, you’ll be very close to the right answer.

For any entrepreneur out there – can you imagine doing anything as slowly as this bison reduction plan, and still expect your business to survive?

If the native inhabitants of this land were as effective hunter-cullers as our present government is, we’d be up to our eyeballs in bison by now. But the good news would be – bison-pie piles would be taller than any of our windmills.

The govt. started this process in Sep 2017, and has finally concluded “we don’t know sh*t about buffaloes, bison, or anything else”.
