WaPo sneers at Americans embracing a family get together

Why do the WaPo editors bother publishing such nonsense over a traditional family get together? What evidence does WaPo have of the world watching in disbelief? Should Americans heed the disapproval of someone living in Melbourne?

It is hard to think of a more sanctimonious article that sneers at families bonding.

Or have Americans moved on from the fear-mongering peddled by medical activists enjoying new found powers to push politics over science?

Isn’t it just more evidence of Americans growing fed up and tired of the double standards displayed by hypocritical politicians who break the very rules they portend gruesome death if the peasants don’t follow draconian orders to the letter?

Maybe when people see elites like California Gov Gavin Newsom busted for having a swank dinner with the CEO of the California Medical Association – who represents thousands of physicians – people can see that they are being played.

It perfectly sums up the satirical video we published today about “obedience.”

“A Time to Heal?” – one of Larry Elder’s best monologues

We’ve always admired Larry Elder’s ability to shred liberal narratives with data and facts.

Quid Pro Joe over Brexit?

Former VP Joe Biden is putting pressure on UK PM Boris Johnson to strike a deal with the EU on trade.

In September 2020, Biden said,

We can’t allow the Good Friday Agreement that brought peace to Northern Ireland to become a casualty of Brexit. Any trade deal between the U.S. and U.K. must be contingent upon respect for the Agreement and preventing the return of a hard border. Period.”

So effectively the Biden administration wants to dictate terms to one of its closest allies and the world’s oldest democracy. Even if a trade deal with the EU turns out to be so disadvantageous to the UK, Quid Pro Joe is effectively saying “take it or else” otherwise your trade deal with the US will be affected.

Should Johnson forget the referendum and quasi second referendum where the majority of British voters spoke about leaving the EU? His duty is to follow through on that, not be threatened by the US. If a “no deal” ends up better for Britons than any trade negotiation, Biden should accept that democratic decision, not try to bully an outcome for his globalists pals. Perhaps Hunter Biden can get a lucrative job as an EU trade advisor?

California Gov Newsom considers Hollywood an essential business

More liberal hypocrisy. So soon after being busted for violating his own rules by dining in a flash restaurant with health association executives no less, California Gov Gavin Newsom has declared Hollywood an essential industry which is not subject to lockdown rules imposed between 10pm and 5am.

What a joke. Then again, Hollywood leans left so they get a pass in California. How typical of the elitist mentality of the Democrat party. Best not waste precious police resources on actors. Far more useful to arrest paddle boarders social distancing 200m away from anyone else and threaten them with 6 months jail.

We prefer the words of South Dakota Gov Kristi Noem who said, “who am I to tell you whether your business is essential or not?

Rules for thee but not for me.

America’s new climate czar

John Kerry: Joe Biden’s pick for Climate Envoy. The hypocrisy of being lectured to by a man who is hardly setting the example.

Cringeworthy Celebrities celebrate NY Gov Cuomo’s Emmy Award

You can’t make this stuff up.

NY Gov Andrew Cuomo accepted the International Emmy Founders Award for his COVID19 response. Woke celebrities then lavished him with praise in a completely out of touch cringe fest.

The International Emmy Awards tweeted,

Gov Andrew M Cuomo of NY will receive the International Emmy Founders Award in recognition of his leadership during the Covid19 pandemic & his masterful use of TV to inform & calm people around the world.

How telling that the Emmy’s focused on delivery as opposed to results.

How ironic that Cuomo not only laid claim to the most disastrous COVID19 stats of any state but mandated COVID positive patients into nursing homes which directly led to the deaths of 6,000 elderly residents.

Even worse Cuomo ordered the NY Health Dept to conduct an independent review of the disastrous policy and amazingly it found no fault in his leadership. Who knew self audits would produce such results?

So poor was Cuomo’s response during the crisis that many wealthy folk responsible for 50% of NYC’s tax revenue left the city which saw the NY Gov issue a cringeworthy video pleading for them to come back promising to buy them a drink or cook for them to get them to pay taxes.

Perhaps even more pathetic was his attempt to over-regulate on what constituted a meal in bars when local businesses tried to innovate with cheap “Cuomo Chips” to drive patronage. Oh, no you don’t. One must have a proper meal and Cuomo’s team will tell you what makes the grade.

So arrogant has Cuomo’s leadership been that he had a poster commissioned which highlighted the supposed successes of his COVID response.

After all this, just how out of touch is Cuomo to accept the award by a body that is as clueless as the Emmys for even considering it? We guess it proves that black is white, up is down and war is peace. Just don’t believe your lying eyes.

WaPo thinks interracial couples will breathe a sigh of relief with Kamala Harris as VP

Overnight, WaPo went out of its way to publish a puff piece on identity politics, suggesting interracial couples could breathe easy because a black woman with a white partner were soon to be confirmed at the highest levels of government.

Sorry? I am married to a woman from another race. Not for one fleeting millisecond do Kamala Harris and Doug Emhoff symbolize anything remotely monumental for us. On the contrary. It is utterly irrelevant. As it should be.

Besides, I married my better half because of the content of her character, not the colour of her skin. One imagines Kamala Harris loves Mr Emhoff for his personality. As two-dimensional as Harris often appears, we sincerely doubt Emhoff’s ethnicity was a clincher. Maybe Emhoff loves Harris’ infectious laughter. Who knows? Who cares? It is a matter for them.

The article, penned by Sydney Trent, tried to paint the picture that Kamala Harris is a vital piece in the visual puzzle that will stamp out systemic racism and bigotry for good.

According to Pew Research, c.10% of all marriages today are mixed race/ethnicity up from around 3% in 1967. 17% of all new unions are interracial. So is Trent trying to tell us not to believe our lying eyes that the 5-fold ratio increase in mixed marriages over the last 5-decades is not evidence that contradicts the notion that so many still remain in abject fear of those intolerant few that cast scorn upon them?

Where are Trent’s in-depth statistics that document interracial couples being under constant attack by unhinged lunatics across the USA?

The FBI keeps such a comprehensive database on hate crimes. In its  2019 Hate Crimes report, there is no classification for interracial couple abuse.

The closest to it would be the 4,930 victims of race/ethnicity/ancestry bias in 2019 across 3,963 incidents. By deduction, only 967 groups (perhaps some are couples) have been ‘vilified’ for their racial background. That doesn’t automatically guarantee that they were all interracial couples. Let’s assume that they are for simplicity’s sake.

Among 330 million Americans, interracial couples have at worst a 0.000293% chance of being the victim of a hate crime targeting their race/ethnicity, suggesting that 99.9987% don’t.

Never mind, Trent had to push the identity politics agenda:

“On the last night of the Democratic National Convention, Aisha Cozad watched on television as Joe Biden and his vice-presidential choice Kamala D. Harris held their clasped hands triumphantly aloft. But her eyes were also on Doug Emhoff, Harris’s husband, who was standing off to one side clapping adoringly. It was clear who was in the spotlight and who was the cheerleader…Cozad was moved because Emhoff was a man so publicly supporting his powerful, ambitious wife. And she was moved because Emhoff is White and Harris is Black...”

“Given the current state of race relations, it’s a powerful thing to say that we don’t have to accept these roles as society would have us play them out,” said Cozad, a 46-year-old African American whose husband, Scott, 44, is White. “We don’t have to accept what society says it’s comfortable with. We can, in fact, determine our own path.

Should we be surprised that Emhoff is proud of his partner given the results? If Emhoff was black, would his applause been any more/less supportive? Hopefully Jill Biden is just as proud of her Joe as Emhoff is of Harris.

Maybe Trent might reflect on the fact that almost 1/5th of current American couples have already “determined their own path” without having to pander to identity politics. Maybe they just dig their other half no matter what race, ethnicity, ancestry, religion, sexual proclivity, orientation or gender they happen to be.
