Nancy Pelosi visits hair salon forced to shutdown

We’re all in this together!

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi visited a San Francisco hair salon to get her hair done on Monday afternoon despite salons being forced to close during the pandemic. It isn’t the first episode of hypocritical Dems doing this. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said her hair was essential to her job during lockdown.

Salon owner Erica Kious said one of her stylists – who rents a chair – got the request from Pelosi’s staffer.

Naturally, Pelosi’s team said she hadn’t been flouting COVID rules. Her flunky said, “The Speaker always wears a mask and complies with local COVID requirements. This business offered for the Speaker to come in on Monday and told her they were allowed by the city to have one customer at a time in the business. The Speaker complied with the rules as presented to her by this establishment.”

Unsurprisingly, Kious pushed back with, “It was a slap in the face that she went in, you know, that she feels that she can just go and get her stuff done while no one else can go in, and I can’t work…We have been shut down for so long, not just me, but most of the small businesses and I just can’t – it’s a feeling – a feeling of being deflated, helpless and honestly beaten down…I have been fighting for six months for a business that took me 12 years to build to reopen…I am a single mom, I have two small children, and I have no income….There were rules and regulations [partitions etc] to go by to safely reopen [in July], which I did, but I was still not allowed to open my business…”

Kious went on to say she had no control over the actions of her stylist.

Nancy Pelosi must be wearing an invisible mask (see photo). These politicians have zero respect for the people they claim to represent. No wonder her district is the homeless capital of America.

The true face of these Democrat politicians is for all to see. No mask required.

Minny City councillors spend $63k of taxpayer funds on private security

Minney

Who knew that the 3 biggest proponents of defunding the Minneapolis Police Department – councillors Andrea Jenkins, and Phillipe Cunningham, and Alondra Cano – would be spending $4,500 a day on private security? While we understand that no councillor deserves to receive personal threats to their safety, neither should residents.

Surely they should lead by example and be the first to live by the very system they expect the rest of the city to live by. How strange that these were some of the same people who endorsed an advisory telling residents to obey criminals and hand over their wallets, purses and smartphones while insisting their safety is still paramount.

What could possibly go wrong?

The profiles of the three councillors bear some attention.

Why do they insist on self-promoting their history of activism? Note the detailed descriptions of their identities contained in the personal summaries directly copy & pasted from the Minneapolis Council website. One council member is even proud to list that she has been arrested and handcuffed before. Was this advertised on her campaign posters, flyers and correx boards?

Andrea Jenkins

Andrea Jenkins is a writer, performance artist, poet, and transgender activist. She is the first African American openly trans woman to be elected to office in the United States. Jenkins has experience working in community development in North Minneapolis, and in delivering social services in South Minneapolis.

Jenkins moved to Minnesota to attend the University of Minnesota in 1979 and was hired by the Hennepin County government, where she worked for a decade. Jenkins worked as a staff member on the Minneapolis City Council for 12 years before beginning work as curator of the Transgender Oral History Project at the University of Minnesota’s Jean-Nickolaus Tretter Collection in Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Studies.

Andrea holds a Masters Degree in Community Development from Southern New Hampshire University, a MFA in Creative Writing from Hamline University and a Bachelors Degrees in Human Services from Metropolitan State University. She is a nationally and internationally recognized writer and artist, a 2011 Bush Fellow to advance the work of transgender inclusion, and the recipient of numerous awards and fellowships.

Phillipe Cunningham

Phillipe M. Cunningham (pronounced fil-LEAP) is the Minneapolis City Council Member representing the 4th Ward in North Minneapolis. He is the first and currently only out trans man of color elected to office in the United States. Prior to being elected and unseating a 50-year family political dynasty in 2017, Council Member Cunningham served former Mayor Betsy Hodges as her Senior Policy Aide for education, racial equity, and LGBTQ+ rights. He also previously worked with youth as a special education teacher and youth worker for over 10 years.

As a policy wonk and fierce community advocate, Council Member Cunningham’s goals are to break intergenerational cycles of poverty and violence and build community wealth with Northsiders already living in the community. His writings have been published in ‘The Guide for White Women Who Teach Black Boys and Millennial Compact with America.’

Pronouns: he/him/his

Alondra Cano

Council Member Cano represents the Ninth Ward. The Ninth Ward is located in the heart of Minneapolis and is the most diverse in the city, encompassing the largest American Indian and Latino populations, a growing East African community, and an active LGBTQIA community.

When elected to her first term in 2013, Alondra said to Minnesota Public Radio: “My entire life I have worked on efforts to make sure the diverse communities of Minneapolis and Minnesota were engaged, empowered, and served by the various institutions that govern us. […] I’m humbled. I’m excited. I’m ready to serve.

Council Member Cano was elected to the 13-member Minneapolis City Council as the first Latino/a to serve in its history. 2013 also saw the first Hmong and Somali Council Members to be elected. Voters returned Alondra to her second term in 2017, also electing at this time the first transgender council members to serve in the council’s history. Undoubtedly, ours is one of the diverse city councils in the country, on which Council Member Cano is proud to be an active member.

Before serving as an elected official, Alondra was a policy aide to then Minneapolis City Council Vice President Robert Lilligren. She was also the manager of the Multilingual Communications Division at the Minneapolis Public Schools. Alondra is a longtime activist and community organizer. As Associate Director of the Minnesota Immigrant Freedom Network, she worked on a wide range of social and racial equity issues facing Latino immigrants and undocumented students. Alondra has long advocated for comprehensive immigration reform, and worked to help pass the Minnesota Dream Act at the Minnesota Legislature. The Minnesota Dream Act gives undocumented Latino students better access to higher education options in the state.

Alondra was born in Litchfield, Minnesota and spent her early years in Chihuahua, Mexico before returning to Minnesota at the age of 10. Alondra attended the University of Minnesota where she became active in student government and political activism. During a sit-in protest to keep the General College open Alondra was arrested and handcuffed along with fellow students.

While congratulations might seem to be in order for the three individuals achieving the status of “first” in history, one imagines that the community is fast waking up to the fact that identity can never compensate for a lack of ability. What irony that the very people who have been fighting for inclusion in all of its forms discriminate against the very people who backed their diversity and elected them to office.

Will these councillors openly take responsibility for instituting obviously disastrous policies when the city depopulates, taxes dry up as crime surges or hide their incompetence behind the necessary evil of progressivism?

Lori Lightfoot puts her slipper down in Chicago as crime skyrockets

Chicago

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot lambasted the idea that Trump might send federal troops to protect federal property as crime skyrockets in her city. In 2020, murders up 51%. Shootings are up 47%. But hey, never mind that over a dozen people were shot in broad daylight outside a funeral home.

She tweeted, “Mr. President or not—I don’t care one bit what your name is. I will not allow troops in Chicago, and I will do everything in my power to stop you.

She claimed the federal troops would have no idea how to navigate Chicago. If we took several of her aldermen at their word, it is Lightfoot who has no idea about her city.

Maybe if she was more proactive in stemming the violence, Mr Trump would have no requirement to send troops. The irony came from an MSNBC interview with local Chicago residents who openly said, “federal help” would be most welcome to put an end to the warzone conditions. Who knew? We guess that Lightfoot’s own taxpayer-funded private security allows her to sleep soundly at night.

Sounds more like Lightfoot’s well-documented TDS as opposed to her utter lack of leadership.

Perhaps she needs to deputize the Census Cowboy to law enforcement instead?

You can’t make this stuff up

Really? Aren’t conservatives merely calling out left wing celebrities for their own blatant hypocrisy? Yet the media can’t help but cry that they are being victimized and targeted. Newsweek’s liberal tears about “weaponizing cancel culture” can be found here.

As conservative Charlie Kirk pointed out in a tweet,

“Has anyone noticed—everyone who has been caught in blackface is a leftist:

—Ralph Northam

—Jimmy Kimmel

—Jimmy Fallon

—Howard Stern

—Joy Behar

—Sarah Silverman

—Ted Danson

—Gigi Hadid

—Julianne Hough

—Billy Crystal

—Justin Trudeau

Maybe Republicans aren’t the problem here?”

That is the ultimate irony of the left. It is only too happy to cancel everyone else. Yet when it comes to their own side, somehow they are unfairly treated.

Actor, James Woods tweeted about Kimmel’s apology with,

I have long been reluctant to address this, as I knew doing so would be celebrated as a victory by those who equate apologies with weakness.” // So another leftist essentially uses his “apology” as an attack on others. Just own it, you unabashed racist.

Now Tina Fey wants episodes of “30 Rock” where she starred with black face to be removed.

Don’t we all love to get sanctimonious lectures from hypocrites?

Liberal Privilege at its finest

Have you heard of Liberal privilege?

As we know many Democrat politicians have been pushing to defund the police across American cities. The president of Minneapolis City Council said that having the police is a privilege.

In LA, Council President Nury Martinez demanded $150 million be stripped from the LAPD budget but uses them for her own private security.

Some pigs are more equal than others.

Hypocrite.

Stupid is as stupid does

Do you buy tyrannical Michigan Gov Whitmer’s excuse? Of course lockdown is so hilarious that it requires her spouse to make jokes.

Gives new meaning to “stupid husband.”

Do as we say, not as we do

Take that. Despite living with the irony that half of the members of the Australian Council of Superannuation Investors (ACSI) fail to meet the very diversity quotas they expect ASX200 companies to hit, what a complete laughing stock to publicly tell conference organisers it won’t join unless there is a guarantee of gender balanced speaker participation. How about try to get the best diversity of thought for a speaking panel regardless of their identity? There won’t be a man in the audience who complains at a panel of superstar women speakers.

The ACSI demands are listed here. A default letter the ACSI uses is as follows.

“SAMPLE RESPONSE TO EVENT INVITATIONS

Thank you for your invitation to speak at [name of event]. ACSI has taken the Panel Pledge and will only participate in events which are gender diverse and inclusive. Before accepting your invitation, I’ll need some additional information to determine whether this event is consistent with our commitment.

Can you please confirm the following:

– Will there be a gender balance among speakers at this event?
– Will speaking roles be allocated equitably among genders?

If I agree to participate in this event, I reserve the right to withdraw later should I become aware there will not be a gender balance among speakers.

Thanks in advance for your support of our efforts to promote gender diversity.”

What if the ACSI was offered a chance to speak next to Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk for the third and final slot at an investor conference? Would ACSI turn it down to stick to its principlesb or be the first in line to take selfies to upload to Instagram?

Get woke, go broke.
