The socialist dem propaganda ministry hard at work protecting sacred cows this time allowing a post publishing edit to follow the narrative. WTF!?!? -

"In a March 31 op-ed in USA Today, Abrams wrote that the advancement of civil rights relied on economic boycotts, but cautioned that there is a downside: 'Boycotts invariably also cost jobs. To be sustainable, the pain of deprivation must be shared rather than borne by those who are least resilient. They also require a long-term commitment to action,'" Politifact wrongly claimed Abrams said in the original op-ed.

"Not over the fact that Stacey Abrams published an op-Ed about the Georgia law saying 'boycotts work,' and she wouldn’t blame anyone for boycotting.. Then AFTER the MLB move, STEALTH EDITED the op-Ed with stronger language opposing boycotts, and media have used it to defend her," Whitlock reacted.

Oh come on guys, The Punch is just bored. Try not to never forget that Punch said twice that the ONLY reason he comes here is to get you jerks all riled up. That’s is only reason. He has no other purpose for posting. It brings him joy to yank your chains.
I often remember that when I skip over his comments. He brings nothing to the table except to throw food.

Punchy is bored again. He really should get a hobby. As karma would have it, I am now sooo bored of him. He is the most boring person here and his posts rival none for boredom....except maybe mine. Funny how that works.

Gregory, fish thanks for promoting our upcoming "Thousand Kisses Deep Songs of Leonard Cohen" show. Right now it looks like we'll do a local show at the Nevada Thetre or Center For The Arts in Feb. to be followed by a performance at the Crest theater in Sacramento. Two years ago at the Crest the show sold over 800 tickets-almost a sellout. The show consists of 13 of Nevada Counties finest musicians and singers and has become an annual for 10 years (except for last year).

For helping us promote the show like you have I'll have a couple of comps for you for either show. I'll let you know when the dates will be announced.

Anyway thqnks again for promoting the upcoming shows.

Even serpent head knows the socialist dems are in trouble -

Democrat political strategist and elections expert James Carville told Vox on Tuesday that Democrats have been losing congressional seats because of their major “messaging problem” of “wokeness” and “everyone knows it.”

Carville said he is worried about where the Democrat party is headed because of their terrible job messaging. He said look at the 2020 election where President Joe Biden “only narrowly defeated Trump” and came “within 42,000 votes of losing.”

Democrats also “lost congressional seats” instead of picking up more during a presidential campaign year. Now, Democrats have the slimmest majority in the House. He continued to say Democrats even “failed to pick up state legislatures.”

Carville claims during the interview the Democrats “wokeness is a problem and we all know it”

When asked about messaging in the Biden administration, Carville told Vox he is glad the administration does not use “faculty lounge” phraseology. He explained “faculty lounge” politics is when you have people in fancy colleges using a made-up language that ordinary people do not recognize. For example, the voter base does not necessarily use phrases like “LatinX” or “communities of color.”

‘New Explosive Detail About John Kerry Discovered In Leaked Audio Tape Of Iran’s Foreign Minister, Report Says’

https://www.dailywire.com/news/new-explosive-detail-about-john-kerry-discovered-in-leaked-audio-tape-of-irans-foreign-minister-report-says
———————
PROJECT VERITAS IS STICKING IT TO THE TIMES
This video by Project Veritas’s James O’Keefe is entertaining. O’Keefe is not a lawyer, but what he says about the progress of Veritas’s defamation lawsuit against the New York Times is basically accurate. The case arises out of Veritas’s exposure of voter fraud in Minnesota, which the Times labeled, falsely, as “deceptive” and “probably part of a coordinated disinformation campaign.” Project Veritas alleges that these and other statements by the Times were false. The Times moved to dismiss Veritas’s complaint. That motion was denied by a judge who seems sympathetic to Veritas’s point of view, and the Times has now been required to answer the allegations of the complaint.

The newspaper’s principal defense is that the allegedly defamatory statements were expressions of opinion, like, say, “Blue is my favorite color,” and therefore immune from defamation liability. The funniest thing about this, as O’Keefe points out in the video, is that the Times’s denunciation of Veritas’s expose led to “fact checks” decreeing Veritas’s statements “false” by liberal sources like USA Today.

So when the Times says you are “deceptive” and “probably part of a coordinated disinformation campaign,” which is it? Fact or opinion? On the bright side, it is nice to see the Times not only admitting, but affirmatively alleging, that its “news” pages consists largely of statements of its reporters’ left-wing opinions.

‘Biden’s Con against America’

One-hundred days in, Biden’s radical presidency makes clear that his campaign was, in fact, a fraud.

‘It’s the unspoken Biden formula,” reports Axios. “Talk like a rosy bipartisan; act like a ruthless partisan.”

Indeed, it is. And to this maxim we might add a few others. Talk like a moderate; act like a radical. Talk about normality; act like a revolutionary. And, at all stages, aggressively hide the ball. Progressive pundits have taken to saying that Biden poses a problem for conservatives because he is so “boring.” That’s one way of looking at it, certainly. Another is that he is a fraud. The man who ran on a return to normalcy — and whose party avoided unified Republican government by only 90,000 votes — now says he wants to be FDR. Heaven help us all.

https://www.nationalreview.com/2021/04/bidens-con-against-america/

Hmmm. Remember that time Biden said he watched FDR’s fireside chats on the television? That’s no malarkey.

George Rebane

Re BillT 646am - Will any liberal admit that Biden is the biggest fraud as president, bigger than Obama? He told the biggest lie of the century (so far) of the 21st century in American politics - fooling the electorate that he was a moderate Democrat, and then showing his true colors as a socialist cum proto-communist during the first 100 days of his administration, and promising to do even more damage to the nation in the remainder of his term.

He is what everyone was warned about --

Not once in 100 days has Biden exercised a moderating influence. He has backed the “cancel culture” and efforts by Silicon Valley giants to censor conservatives. The Biden White House echoes the rhetoric of the Black Lives Matter movement, condemning America for “systemic racism,” and describing the death of knife-wielding Ma’Khia Bryant as “police violence.”

Biden threw the southern border open to thousands of migrants, bringing back “kids in cages” (but keeping the media out).

Yes George. There is no way Biden is part of the far left. You have to make him an extreme by radicalizing him because we all know there is nothing better for religion than a healthy devil.

Also no one can compete with Trump for lying to the American public. I have mentioned just a few that cannot be denied. First his failure to balance the budget as PROMISED. Second his reform of health care which he PROMISED. and third his promise to rebuild the infrastructure which he PROMISED. And there's the perpetuating lie that the election was rigged which in an outright lie and he knows it and you do to.

Until you acknowledge these and so many other examples of Trumps lying to the American public you have no standing to accuse Biden of dishonesty.

Well, well, well. There was a good reason that Biden and Barry were rated #1 and #3 as the most liberal members of Senate. First and third in 2007. Odd. Very odd. Who would have ever thought.

So, George, you can’t talk about Biden’s dishonestly? Forbidden. Full stop.

Is that why You Tube banned Bongino’s interview with this week with Trump? Apple too. No worries, it just drove traffic to Rumble, 450,000 views. You know, trying to silence free speech is a very very totalitarian fascist thing. It’s what ALL Commie Bastard Maoists Leninist and Hitter and Lefties do: squash others speech. Erased. Cancel culture. It’s quite divisive if you ask me.

Anyway, Dr. Rebane, I hope you take Paul’s directive well. A not so subtle command. Guess we can talk about firewood or sumthang that does not involve Joe Biden’s long long history of lying about who he is....you know, top of his class with three degrees and the most self announced inflated IQ in the 20th Century. Or that hot zone helicopter flight taking flack over the mountains of Afghanistan or Iraq. Brian Williams was the pilot I reckon.

Illegal alien sex offenders are being freed into the United States thanks to President Joe Biden’s “sanctuary country” orders, a local media report details.

In February, Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued orders preventing ICE agents from arresting and deporting illegal aliens unless they are terrorists, known gang members, or recently convicted of an aggravated felony. An analysis of the orders revealed they are likely to prevent about 9-in-10 deportations.

Leftist snobs in white towers with tenure and their wokenista lemmings will hand over congress shortly -

We might pay special attention to some of Carville’s word-choices: “people in faculty lounges in fancy colleges.” There’s a stereotype that leading Democrats hang out in the Ivy League and other posh colleges—and Carville agrees with it.

Indeed, he went on to attack “jargon-y language that’s unrecognizable to most people—including most Black people.” Picking up on his theme of a snobby dimension to leftist thinking, Carville added, “This ‘too cool for school’ [bleep] doesn’t work, and we have to stop it.”

Here we can pause to quote conservative Scott Alexander, who wrote earlier this year, “Wokeness is a made-up mystery religion that college-educated people invented so they could feel superior to you.” Continuing, Alexander added, “The whole point is that the only way not to be racist is to master an inscrutable and constantly-changing collection of fashionable shibboleths and opinions which are secretly class norms.”

So we can see: Alexander is agreeing with Carville; the whole essence of wokeness is that it’s a status symbol. Just as some people choose to raise themselves—at least in their own estimation—by gaining an affected accent, others seek to gain status by becoming fluent in woke. Politically correct lingo thus further distinguishes Berkeley, CA, from, say, Beckley, WV.

Then Carville, a native of rural Louisiana, known as the “Ragin’ Cajun,” roared some more, saying of Democratic vulnerability, “I think it’s because large parts of the country view us as an urban, coastal, arrogant party.”

We can also add: “rich.” Of the ten richest states (including the District of Columbia), as measured by per capita income, Joe Biden carried eight last year; of the ten poorest states, Donald Trump carried nine. Drilling down a bit, we can also see that Democrats represent 41 of the 50 most affluent districts in the U.S. House.

Yet it’s not just that Democrats are woke and wealthy. In addition, some of their best-known policy ideas are way-y-y out of touch with ordinary people. But don’t take my world for it—here’s Carville: “Maybe tweeting that we should abolish the police isn’t the smartest thing to do because almost [bleeping] no one wants to do that.”

And the woken website Jezebel jabbed, “Carville seems to have one job of late: Popping up to offer his list of grievances about the left’s influence on the Democratic Party.” The writer then addd a racialist snipe at “People—often white, often men—with large and influential platforms who redefine co-opted terms like ‘woke’ and dictate its supposed harm.”

Yet interestingly, on April 30, Jaime Harrison, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, seemed to agree with Carville. As Harrison said of Carville, “there’s some truth to what he says,” and then he added:

Ultimately, working people just want somebody, and their leaders, to speak plain English, to speak to them in the way that they operate, in the space that they operate in.

We might recall that Harrison was the Democratic nominee for the U.S. Senate seat in South Carolina last year, in which he challenged Sen. Lindsey Graham—and that in September 2020, he was running dead even with Graham. But then Graham started running TV spots lambasting Harrison and Democrats for wanting to defund the police. Graham’s spots did the job. In November, Harrison lost by 10 points, despite spending $130 million, vastly more than Graham.

Summing up the election afterward, Harrison’s former boss and longtime mentor, Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC), recalled, “Jaime Harrison started to plateau when ‘Defund the Police’ showed up with a caption on TV right across his head.”

The socialist dems weaponizing the FBI, DOJ and CIA is out of control and it looks like stalin is in charge -

[I]’m very upset about what’s going on with Rudy Giuliani,” Dershowitz said to open his appearance with John Catsimatidis. “In banana republics, in Castro‘s Cuba, in many parts of the world when a candidate loses for president, they go after the candidate, they go after his lawyers, they go after his friends. That didn’t happen in America, and that’s happening in America now. They’re going after Rudy Giuliani … Who knows who’s going to be next? And they’re going after him in inappropriate ways. A search warrant on a lawyer or a doctor or a priest? You don’t use search warrants when people have privileged information on their cell phones and in their computers. You use a subpoena. The difference between a subpoena and a search warrant is like night and day.”

“It’s just not constitutional,” he continued. “And that’s why when Rudy called me yesterday, I said sure I’ll help out. I’m in favor of the Constitution.”

“Look, I think the government made a serious mistake when they went by search warrant. They gave Rudy Giuliani lots of legal arguments … that I think he can prevail on. … Apparently, they went after the cloud and went after other material and information without telling him. That’s just not the way the government is supposed to treat its citizens.”

As Jefferson put it in 1798: “It would be a dangerous delusion were a confidence in the men of our choice to silence our fears for the safety of our rights; that confidence is everywhere the parent of despotism—free government is founded in jealousy, and not in confidence; it is jealousy and not confidence which prescribes limited constitutions, to bind down those whom we are obliged to trust with power.”

TIME FOR CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE?
News item: Biden Administration is prohibiting a July 4 fireworks celebration at Mount Rushmore. Previous July 4 fireworks celebrations at Mount Rushmore had proceeded as a joint venture between the state of South Dakota and the National Park Service. Gov. Kristi Noem has filed suit against the Biden Administration.

News item: Pentagon refuses to issue a parking permit for the annual Memorial Day “Rolling Thunder” motorcycle rally. COVID risk is the stated reason, but I’m guessing the real reason is the likelihood of too many Trump flags being displayed by the riders.

"Memorial Day traditions like Rolling to Remember have been granted permits by every administration, Democrat and Republican, for the past 30 years. The Biden Administration's decision to end this Memorial Day tradition flies in the face of the freedoms that so many have died to protect," Rep. Mast said in a statement to Fox News."

Critical Race Theory is racism packaged as social & institutional discrimination falsely labeled as “justice” so the radical left can weaponize it against anybody who dares disagree with their far-left ideology. That’s how to explain it to friends.

My, my. Reason published a Matt Welch piece. Hits all the points...with reason.

'The Equity Mess'
Despite their professed goals, Democrats' pandemic policies have widened disparities between races, classes, and genders.

The wokenistas are loving the swamp but the CIA really??!? -

Fox News contributor Rachel Campos Duffy noted that the unnamed agent appears to list "all her identities (intersectional, cis gender, millennial woman of color with anxiety disorder) EXCEPT American. God help us," she wrote.

Political commentator Liz Wheeler tweeted, "Watch this insane CIA recruitment video & tell me the CIA isn't a woke swamp creature... capable & willing to weaponize their power to target their political opponents: conservatives."

Director and producer Robby Starbuck also weighed in.

"This is a real video released by the CIA," he wrote alongside the clip. "Every institution is being destroyed by the woke left. If we don't stop this, [the U.S.] will fall. I bet instead of waterboarding, they'll unleash real torture on terrorists: Listening to 'progressives' talk for hours about every social issue."

Glenn Greenwald, who, among others, was awarded a Pulitzer for his reporting about government surveillance programs, tweeted: 'Lots of people who pay no attention to the CIA and the security state seem to think this CIA video is the first time they've promoted, endorsed and embraced woke ideology...They've been doing it for years. I wrote about back in 2015."

"Biden is turning every U.S. institution into an embarrassing freak show," Daily Wire reporter Ryan Saavedra wrote. "The world is laughing at us."

Another significant appellate issue -

A juror in the Derek Chauvin trial may have jeopardized the guilty verdict by attending a rally last year and wearing a “Get Your Knee Off Our Necks/BLM” T-shirt, raising questions about whether he told the truth during jury selection.

Brandon Mitchell, known as Juror #52, told Minneapolis news outlets Monday that he attended the Aug. 28 march in Washington, D.C., featuring speeches by George Floyd’s siblings, while a photo circulating online shows him with two cousins wearing the T-shirt as well as a “Black Lives Matter” hat.

What may come back to haunt the prosecution is that Mr. Mitchell, 31, answered “no” when asked during jury selection if he had attended any protests for George Floyd.

Don 8:48 - "What may come back to haunt the prosecution..."
Nope.
Nothing 'haunts' people with no scruples.
Mitchell was hardly an impartial jurist.
https://www.cnn.com/2021/04/28/us/derek-chauvin-george-floyd-trial-juror/index.html
Mitchell: "I didn't see any remorse."
That was before the verdict. Why should an innocent person show remorse?
Ah - because Mitchell had him judged as guilty all along.
Read the whole CNN article. Mitchell should have never been on that jury.

‘By Democrats’ Standards, Their School Closures Are Systemic Racism’
While the Biden administration still refuses to say whether schools should be fully open this fall, new data shows systemic racial disparities in the availability of in-person education.

“Joe Biden and Kamala Harris called it “systemic racism“ when a white cop knelt on a black man for almost 10 minutes. But teachers unions largely led by white people have knelt on the futures of black American kids for 13 months, and Democrats are taking millions to look away”
