Virtue signaling

Tipsy Turry legal justice dispenser

MRCTV’s Britt Hughes takes a broadside at the stories the media conveniently left out because it didn’t fit the narrative.

Brutal Babylon Bee on Kamala Harris

From the Babylon Bee:

U.S.—Supporters of Kamala Harris have been eagerly awaiting an announcement on who her VP pick will be when she takes over as president approximately 5 minutes after Joe Biden is inaugurated. According to sources close to the campaign, she is already vetting possible candidates for the job. 

“I am proud to announce I will soon be announcing my pick for Vice President of the United States,” said Harris. “We have searched all across this great land. While I cannot yet confirm who my pick will be, I can say this: my pick for VP will be even MORE of a woman and even MORE of color than I am. It will be the most colorful and womanly team ever!” She then threw her head back and cackled maniacally.

Joe Biden was also thrilled to hear the news that he would be getting not just one, but two female vice presidents.

The VP search has stalled since it has proven difficult to find a woman of color who survived both Kamala Harris’ pro-abortion policies as well as her aggressive imprisonment of minorities. In a statement, the campaign also promised to announce a pick while all The Babylon Bee writers are sleeping so they won’t have a chance to write a funny headline about it.

Media imbalance at its finest

MSNBC presenter Nicolle Wallace is a stranger to balance and perspective. Recently she said the coronavirus had a silver lining because it could cost Trump in November.

Wind back 2 years and she was happy that an economic recession was imminent to damage his chances for re-election.

As we’ve often said of the mainstream media. Journalistic integrity will only return when they love America more than they hate Trump.

The true meaning of 1%

When you leave 1% to chance. Never bet against the contrarian within! How every saint has a past and sinner a future…

N.B. Make sure you check the dates of the tweets.

Compulsory masks in Zoom meetings?

It seems a government agency, the Dept of Natural Resources (DNR) in Wisconsin, is mandating people wear masks during Zoom meetings to show they are beyond full compliance with Democrat Gov Tony Evers’ mask order.

Preston Cole of the DNR e-mailed employees: “

Also, wear your mask, even if you are home, to participate in a virtual meeting that involves being seen — such as on Zoom or another video-conferencing platform — by non-DNR staff. Set the safety example which shows you as a DNR public service employee care about the safety and health of others.

Despite no recommendation by the CDC or requirement by Evers to wear masks while at home, the DNR seems more interested in virtue signaling to the governor than the virus itself.

UK Home Office slaps Ben & Jerry’s UK on illegal immigration

Just when the Aussie Ben & Jerry’s were busy getting the government to ditch fossil fuels, the wokesters at Ben & Jerry’s UK thought they would enter the illegal immigration debate by trolling the Home Secretary Priti Patel. The ice cream maker said,

People wouldn’t make dangerous journeys if they had any other choice.”

“People cannot be illegal.”

The Home Office simply replied,

Priti is working day and night to bring an end to these small boat crossings, which are facilitated by international criminal gangs and are rightly of serious concern to the British people…If that means upsetting the social media team for a brand of overpriced junk food, then so be it.

Foreign Office minister James Cleverly tweeted: “Can I have a large scoop of statistically inaccurate virtue signalling with my grossly overpriced ice cream, please?”

Great to see governments push back against activists disguised as ice cream makers.

Bob Lefsetz lets rip on Democrats pick

Bob Lefsetz has a very fluid writing style. We encourage you to subscribe.

He is no fan of Trump but today he let rip on the Democrats for playing defensively.

He opened with,

“I don’t get it.

She excoriates Biden in the debates and suddenly he picks her as his running mate? This is why people hate the Democrats. They’re squishy, without a backbone, so busy doing what’s expedient, triangulating, that you can’t believe in them so they lose.

It’s about passion more than dogma. One thing about Trump, you cross him and you’re toast. People are excited by Trump. Is anybody excited by Kamala Harris? If so, why did she have trouble raising money during her presidential run, why were her numbers so bad?…

…And Biden…Come on, he’s done nothing to counter the image of senility. Of course anybody who has followed his career knows he’s the king of misspeaking, which is why he’d better not debate Trump whatsoever, the Donald will kill him. Come on, he killed Hillary, and at least she had her wits about her…

….Yes, the Democrats are playing by the old rules. Afraid to move into the future they’ve literally jetted back to the past, with the aged Biden, and are crossing their fingers that people hate Trump just enough to push Joe over the top…

…And Trump knows you make news 24/7, you’re top of mind, whereas Biden is in a bunker hiding, trying to run out the clock…

…There is absolutely nothing exciting on the Democratic ticket, and no matter how many articles are written, no matter how many headlines appear about Harris, that’s not gonna change. It’s not like she’s a noted left-winger. She’s all about law and order in a country where Black Lives Matter pushed Biden to pick a black running mate. Yes, protests make a difference, without them would Harris be on the ticket? Doubtful. But the underlying problems in this country, starting with income inequality, where’s Harris on that? Opportunity? Bernie got all his campaign funds from the rank and file, he was beholden to nobody and what was Hillary’s complaint? No one likes him and he won’t play the game. Well, Trump won’t play the game and he WON! Hillary’s just pissed that she sold herself out and lost. And the DNC and the media couldn’t take the temperature of the country and realize that the Republicans had tarred Hillary’s reputation to the point where not only those on the right, but many on the left, despised her. If you actually spoke with Americans, you weren’t surprised when Trump won. But the DNC and the media are in a bubble. Give Trump credit, at least he spoke to the downtrodden, he even said he liked the uneducated. May have turned your stomach, but if you dropped out of high school and were working a minimum wage job, Hillary was not speaking directly to you! Oh, forget that Trump hasn’t delivered for these people. Once again, the DNC is playing defense, making it about the other candidate as opposed to their own. And you cannot win if you don’t score points. And remind me what points Biden has scored in these past five months…hell, he can’t even make any news!…

….If the DNC were smart, and it is not, it would unleash Kamala, have her make news every day. But they won’t, because they believe that’ll steal the thunder from Joe, who can’t even produce a drizzle. As for the Trumps’ previous donations to Harris…there are no more gotchas. Trump has won again and again and again.”

Biden VP pick Kamala Harris in her own words

This video speaks volumes about the diametrically opposed policies of VP Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris, whom he has picked as his running mate.

In the primaries she vehemently opposed Joe Biden on busing and she was also big on pushing ‘believe all women’ with respect to Biden’s accusers surrounding sexual assault.

Tulsi Gabbard ripped Harris to shreds over her justice record, saying she even blocked evidence for people on death row that would have exonerated them.

Ever the attention seeker, last year she admitted to smoking weed (which she denied in 1993) and said she was a big fan of hip hop music stars Tupac & Snoop Dogg while she was in college. She graduated in 1986. These artists came to fame in the 1990s.

Harris came out in support of actor Jussie Smollett who staged a hate crime hoax without seeing any evidence. She tweeted,

“@JussieSmollett is one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know. I’m praying for his quick recovery.

This was an attempted modern day lynching. No one should have to fear for their life because of their sexuality or color of their skin. We must confront this hate

When the truth was revealed she responded, “I think that the facts are still unfolding, and, um, I’m very, um, concerned about obviously, the initial, um, allegation that he made about what might have happened” going on to say she wouldn’t make any further comments until the outcome of the investigation.

Her policy positions are only slightly to the right of Bernie Sanders. Her plan to be the Democratic nominee in the debates sunk because she was cornered to back policies owned by Sanders and Elizabeth Warren which she wasn’t prepared to defend and regularly flipped.

During the first Democratic debate, she raised her hand in support of eliminating private insurance, only to back off from the position again the very next morning.

Harris was also subject of an open letter written by her ex boyfriend former mayor of San Francisco Willie Brown who claimed to have appointed her to two well paid state commissions while dating when he was speaker of the California Assembly.

Harris also supported a bill that allowed men who identified as women to compete in women’s sports.

She was also humiliated when probing Bret Kavanaugh during the SCOTUS confirmation hearings by having no evidence to back her claims in relation to the Mueller investigation.

She is an each way bet. The jokes about her will write themselves. Identity politics at its finest. Diversity of skin tone vs diversity of thought.

Now that 59% of Americans polled think Biden will step down during his first term, will they want Harris to take his place? A candidate who stands for nothing will fall for anything.

Ben & Jerry’s Woke Windfarm Whippy

No photo description available.

Just when we thought COVID-19 had killed off climate change, Ben & Jerry’s social justice warriors will allow consumers to name an ice cream by donating money.

We thought of:

Climate Corona-netto,

Woke Windfarm Whip,

Toxic Solarcell Cadmium Cherry

Windfarm Blade Bury Berry

CSIRO Costings Crumble

It will be fascinating to see how much emissions will have fallen given the drop off in air traffic and other global travel restrictions due to lockdown.

We wrote about the dirt on solar panels here.

We discussed the problems with recycling wind turbine blades here.

Perhaps Ben & Jerry’s may do well to refer to the CSIRO study on the impacts of going 100% fossil-fuel-free.

Before we even get to 100%, the CSIRO’s energy transition costings forecast costs to exceed $1 trillion with a “T” out to 2050 (p.135). Note this report isn’t even a net-zero study – just lower emissions. So by that logic, net-zero will cost even more. CSIRO assures us that “these costs do not include the full integration costs of renewables, but that these costs are expected to be significantly less than $175 billion.” Who cares about billions in a world of trillions? Significantly less? Can anyone name a government project that has come in on time and on budget? Submarines? NBN? The beauty of spending other people’s money.

We wish to put forward to Ben & Jerry’s how they will manage to keep their ice cream frozen without the help of the carbon economy? From the aluminium (one of the most energy-intensive materials to produce) freezers, to the electric motors to maintain the correct temperature. To the cups and plastic spoons to serve and the use of oil to make the cones.

Perhaps the most interesting stats come from the ice cream maker itself. It suggests that making 1 pint of ice cream leads to 2lb of CO2 emissions. Driving a car 1 mile leads to 1lb of CO2 emissions. So technically if one is able to drive to the supermarket and back they could produce fewer emissions than the ice cream they end up buying. Perhaps they should stop selling ice cream to save the planet?

You’ll never guess what else Ben & Jerry’s support? The Black Lives Matter movement. We look forward to the company banning all vanilla ice cream to stop the systemic racism the company seems to believe is still rife, despite race-based hate crime hoaxes being the norm, not the exception.

Chicago & Portland Mayors finally agree Trump was right all along

Chicago’s Magnificent Mile was ransacked by looters. City officials ended up raising bridges across the river to prevent further rioters entering the CBD, albeit too late. Similar actions occurred during BLM protests several months ago.

Luxury goods stores were the main target. Chicago police exchanged gunfire with looters and arrested more than 100 people.

Most interesting were the comments made by Superintendent of Police David O’Neil Brown, who said that the CPD is being forced to release criminals who only become emboldened to double down and commit further crimes without consequence.

Brown said, “This was not an organized protest. Rather this was an incident of pure criminality…As of now, Chicago police have made more than 100 arrests for looting, disorderly conduct, battery against police, among other charges. A total of 13 officers have been injured throughout the night, including a sergeant who was struck with a bottle. Another officer had his nose broken as he fought with a group of looters…Criminals took to the streets with confidence that there’ll be no consequences for their actions. Let me say that again, criminals took to the street with the confidence that there would be no consequences for their actions and I, for one, refuse to allow these cowardly acts to hold our city hostage.”

Mayor Lori Lightfoot moved away from her traditional “everything is under control” narrative to confess, “These individuals engaged with it can only be described as brazen and extensive criminal looting and destruction. To be clear, this had nothing to do with legitimate protected first amendment expression.

What a surprise? When she gave carte blanche to criminals and rioters under the guise of peaceful protestors, what did she expect? Now she is seeking to do the exact thing Trump was demanding of her. Get tough.

How the tide is turning. Only days ago, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler (D) finally admonished the mob he had openly protested with by stating,  “When you commit arson with an accelerant in an attempt to burn down a building that is occupied by people who you have intentionally trapped inside, you are not demonstrating, you are attempting to commit murder.” He also added “Don’t think for a moment that you are, if you are participating in this activity, you are not being a prop for the reelection campaign of Donald Trump — because you absolutely are…You are creating the b-roll film that will be used in ads nationally to help Donald Trump during this campaign. If you don’t want to be part of that, then don’t show up.

Who knew that one way to get peace in a city is to tell rioters their actions are helping the very man they want to be removed from office?
