Cocaine in. Plastic Straws out in Oregon

Yes, Oregon legislators have voted to decriminalize the possession of small amounts of cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine.

This drug initiative will allow people arrested with small amounts of hard drugs to avoid going to trial, or serving jail time, by paying a $100 fine and attending an addiction recovery program.

Oregon’s House also voted in 2019 to prohibit restaurants from providing single-use plastic straws unless a customer asks.

It is this type of liberal logic we saw in Minneapolis when the council wondered why crime surged when the police were “reimagined”? Who knew.

The makers of Narcan will be happy.

Woman rants at Asian-owned tea shop for not being black owned

It takes a certain type of special to rail against a group of Asians running a tea store that isn’t black owned and accuse them of stealing black culture. She then turns around and calls a black customer a “c**n” for buying tea there. Liberal logic 101.

Liberal logic at its finest

Who Knew? 18.6% of Minneapolis real estate listings up for sale in last 7 days

Minnyap@

Do Americans really want Democrat policies at a national level? As the Minneapolis City Council voted to replace the Minneapolis Police Department with community-led public safety groups, reports are that 18.6% of Minneapolis’ total real estate listings have come up for sale in just 7 days. Real estate website Zillow has tested at 15%. As a rule, 5-6% of total properties is a general average for properties for sale at any one time. Minneapolis at 3x that. Who knew?

What did these politicians think when they were debating to disband the police? None of this cross their minds?

What is worse, the tax base will shrink with it further compounding the problems these political hacks think they will solve for with kumbaya hand-holding. Watch crime soar. Well done liberals. Just when we think new levels of stupidity are hit, you guys manage to lower the bar time after time.

Once again, how can sane Americans honestly see Democrats as a credible alternative to Trump, for all of his foibles?

More double standards in the mainstream media

Two things from last week which carry on with the theme of double standards within the mainstream media. These are so unbelievable that one could be confused to think it was satire coming from the Babylon Bee.

First MSNBC has hired Lisa Page, the lover of former FBI special agent Peter Strzok as a legal analyst. Recall their SMS conversations…no bias there…

FBI report: Anti-Trump texts 'cast a cloud' over email probe

Then The New York Times, despite an invitation, couldn’t publish an opinion piece by Senator Tom Cotton which suggested military support to support law enforcement was sensible because apparently, “Running this puts Black people, including Black @nytimes staff, in danger.”

Apparently, the words of a sitting US senator were deemed more offensive, divisive and dangerous than other NYT opinion pieces from Putin, Erdogan and the Taliban they were only too pleased to publish.

Sen. Cotton said in response, “My Op-Ed doesn’t meet the New York Times’ standards…It far exceeds their standards, which are normally full of left-wing, sophomoric drivel…in the face of the woke mob of woke kids that are in their newsroom.

Never mind the MorningConsult poll which revealed 58% of voters, including a 48% plurality of Democrats who said they’d support bringing in U.S. troops to supplement city police forces amid the protests.

All the news that is fit to print? If the left didn’t have double standards, they wouldn’t have any.

56mn abortions a year. Worth celebrating?

Virtue signaling. Lighting up monuments is the way progressives like to show how ‘woke’ they are. Usually towers and buildings have light thrown upon them after terrorists murder innocent civilians. It is the perfect way to show future terrorists that the West will continue to remain impotent.

Of course love trumps hate is a strategy for liberals. Would be terrorists undoubtedly have pangs of guilt when seeing a building lit up. Deep in their hearts, the defining factor in choosing not to eviscerate concert goers, spray AK-47 fire at cartoonists or run people down in trucks comes from seeing the masses splash French flags over social media avatars.

Still, how crass can NYC be to bathe skyscraper towers to celebrate abortion? Surprised they didn’t invite Michelle Wolf to do her abortion sketch on taxpayer dime in Central Park! What better display of a government acting in the interests of only some of its constituents.

By all means CM respects legislation introduced via democratic process. However is it necessary to champion the terminating of fetuses? Why not conduct a fireworks display for added effect? It is hard not to see it as anything other than an overt and deliberate slap in the face of the pro-lifers and the current administration. Just as easy to pass the legislation without flipping the bird.

Let’s look at the stats.

c.700,000 fetuses are terminated in America each year. Down from 1.4 million in 1990. Hardly stats to cheer about. Of course the arguments for a woman’s right to choose will always be thrown at pro-lifers. Yet allowing termination until birth?

Eurostat statistics on abortion reveal that Germany, France, UK, Spain and Italy alone terminate a combined 760,000 fetuses per annum. Across the EU-28 there are 1.25mn terminations. Without getting into a debate on abortion rights, the pure statistical number points to 20.4% of fetuses never make it out of the womb alive.

According to the Guttmacher Institute some 56 million abortions occur annually. Every. Single. Year. Think that WWII saw 50 million deaths in 6 years of conflict with wide spread use of lethal weapons. So abortions kill at a far higher rate than global conflict.

How ironic that a leftist professor at Birmingham City University, Kehinde Andrews, accused WWII RAF pilots of war crimes. On that logic what does that make abortion clinics? Safe houses?

Take a look at the following photos if you’re game and ask yourself whether abortion is something to celebrate? Once again, this piece isn’t a cry to exert control over women’s rights rather question society and its approach to taking more individual responsibility.

Or are we mistaken to think that the real reason NY lit up these monuments was to lament for all of the fetuses with heartbeats that never had a say in the very legislation that killed them the day before delivery?

California’s new enviro regulations so bad that even liberals hate them

This would be funnier if it wasn’t true. Liberal policy making at its finest.

The irony of the Ivanka bashing was that it was an Obama era policy

Never let the facts get in the way of a narrative. Liberals were incensed over the treatment of kids on the border which led to Samantha Bee calling Ivanka Trump a “feckless c*nt” for not doing anything about it. What so many on the left have failed to grasp is that the policy mess they’re seeing was introduced by the Obama administration in 2013. Pictures of how kids were being locked in cages like animals at the border were circulating this week when they were taken in 2014.

Mainstream media reports had surfaced that federal agencies had lost 1,500 kids. 80% of illegal immigrant parents were skipping court appearances to get their kids over the last 5 years for fear they’d be deported so they moved from the addresses they provided to make it difficult to track them.

So the irony is the outrage over Ivanka’s supposed insensitivity was based on an Obama era policy. Will the left acknowledge their identity politics hero ended up funneling unaccompanied kids via human traffickers? That innocent kids were abandoned on the border to die after they were used to get into America. Even the Washington Post reported at this but alas no liberal outrage. It only matters to play the man not the ball.

Meanwhile serial social justice warrior Trudeau hits new poll lows

FCF15B1F-4C6D-49BE-8980-9C6B66F6AD33.jpeg

Meanwhile, as the supposedly most hated and despised bully of the West is likely to see his approval move sharply higher over North Korea, serial appeaser and social justice warrior Prime Minsiter Trudeau of Canada saw his approval rating sink to 33%, his lowest number ever recorded.  A Forum poll also noted a majority of the voters surveyed (43%) said they would support the Conservatives while 30% believe they would back Trudeau’s Liberal party.

Based on the poll results, Forum Research predicts a Conservative majority government taking 207 seats. The Liberals would take 110 seats, while the NDP would likely garner 23 seats. The Bloc Quebecois would end up with six seats and the Greens with two.

It is surprising to see Trudeau’s slump when he has the full support of people like his Environment Minister Catherine “Climate Barbie” McKenna who said recently not only will she refuse to debate with those that disagree with her on climate change but that Canadians have a $30 trillion (yes you read right) opportunity by 2020 because of the Liberal’s carbon tax and associated environmental policies. Who wouldn’t vote for a party that can 20-bag an economy in 2 years?

If it does go pear-shaped with mathematics like that she can always sign up for the Greens leadership.

When the left truly loses perspective in identity politics

F2BBE7A2-F768-44B3-9D9B-E5DD05A3F4A9.jpeg

Nora Loreto is a Canadian freelance journalist. This was her response to a bus crash which took 15 young lives. How anyone could possibly turn tragedy into posturing over identity politics is incredible. Yet she is undoubtedly one who would be the first to point out the sanctimonious moral crusading to everyday people.

Is it fair to assume that people kindly donated to help families out of compassion to the grieving or purely because of skin colour? Loreto stinks of the same mental illness as those pillorying compassionate support for persecuted white South African farmers. The left keep telling us skin colour is irrelevant yet are the first to point it out to the very bigots they attack.
