Biden should be impeached!

Based on his remarks and intentions, regarding the 2nd Amendment to The Constitution, “President” Joe Biden has violated his oath of office, and should thus be removed from office.

Article II of The Constitution, referring to the president, and concerning executive power, Section 1, Clause 8 states: “Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:–I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

Joe Biden said these words while placing his hand on a Bible, a short two and a half months ago.

Now, he is already breaking that oath. 

The Second Amendment, one of the ten amendments to the Constitution comprising the Bill of Rights, states: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” 

Did you get that?

“THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.”

What part of that does Joe Biden not understand? 

According to Tyler Olson of Fox News, “President Biden on Thursday announced a set of executive actions and legislative proposals on gun control, saying that gun violence is ‘a public health crisis’ and the administration’s actions do not contravene Second Amendment rights.”

“THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.”

“The administration aims to ‘confront not just the gun crisis but what is actually a public health crisis,’ Biden said in his remarks in the Rose Garden. He was joined by Vice President Harris.”

‘“Nothing I’m about to recommend in any way impinges on the Second Amendment,’ Biden said. ‘These are phony arguments suggesting that these are Second Amendment rights at stake from what we’re talking about.’”

“THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.”

“Continuing, Biden said: ‘But no amendment to the Constitution is absolute … From the very beginning, you couldn’t own any weapon you wanted to own. From the very beginning the Second Amendment existed, certain people weren’t allowed to have weapons. So, the idea is just bizarre to suggest that some of the things we’re recommending are contrary to the Constitution.’”

“THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.”

“An administration official detailed the actions to reporters on Wednesday. Among them, Biden is asking the Justice Department (DOJ) to propose within a month a rule to stop ‘ghost guns,’ which are ‘kits’ people can buy legally to assemble a functioning firearm that does not have a serial number.”

For your information, Joe, there are already federal laws regarding “ghost guns.”

“Biden is also asking the DOJ to propose within 60 days a rule on braces used for handguns, which make them more accurate; to propose action on ‘community violence intervention’; to publish suggestions for ‘red flag’ legislation; and is asking his administration to issue a report on gun trafficking.”

“Biden also formally announced David Chipman as the director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).”

“A senior administration official Wednesday said that Chipman will respect the Second Amendment while he enforces gun laws.”

Respecting the Second Amendment and following the law of the Second Amendment are not necessarily the same. 

Just for the record, Chipman is a good little Nazi, in my opinion, and should not be the head of of anything, or even work in the government, period.

‘“I’ve seen with my own two eyes what a bullet can do to the human body … and I’ve fought my entire career to fight this violence and to pass reasonable gun safety measures,’ Harris said as she introduced Biden.”

‘“What are we waiting for? Cause we aren’t waiting for a tragedy… We’ve had more tragedy than we can bear,’ she said. ‘The solutions exist… people on both sides of the aisle want action, real people … so all that is left is the will and the courage to act.’”

Yes, we know Kamala. Tragedy strikes every weekend in the city of Chicago, regarding gun deaths, and they already have some of the strictest gun laws in the country.

You seem to choose to ignore, Kamala, the fact that CRIMINALS DON’T FOLLOW THE LAW! 

“The Biden administration is also expected to throw its weight behind gun control proposals in Congress.”

‘“Enough prayers, time for some action,’ Biden said of Congress. ‘I believe the Senate should immediately pass three House-passed bills to close loopholes that allow gun purchases, purchasers, to bypass the background checks.’”

What about people like your son Hunter, Joe? 

What about people like your son, Hunter, who lie on the application and illegally obtain a firearm, and then are not even punished for it?

What good does passing another law do if no one is punished for breaking it?  

I’m sure no one present from the press thought to ask Illegitimate Joe that question.

“He also pushed for two gun control laws that would go even further than that.”

‘“We should also ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines in this country,’ Biden said. He said ‘there’s no reason’ a person would need a weapon that can hold ‘100 rounds.’”

Please remember, Joe, that the Second Amendment was not written regarding deer hunting…, it was written to make sure the people could stand up against a hostile and oppressive government, either foreign or domestic.   

‘“We should also eliminate gun manufacturers from the immunity they receive from the Congress,’ Biden said, referring to the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), a law that prevents gunmakers from being sued for crimes committed with guns they sell legally.”

To even suggest this is utterly ignorant.

Should we allow car companies to be sued when people kill and injure people with their cars?

Should we allow Alcohol manufacturers to be sued when people kill and injure people after getting drunk off of their products?

It would be nice, Joe, if you could stop and think about what you’re saying before letting this type of stupidness come out of your mouth.

‘“This is the only outfit that is exempt from being sued,’ he continued. ‘If I get one thing on my list… give me that one because I tell you what there would be a come to the Lord moment these folks would have real quickly.’”

Beside lying here, “cognitively challenged” Joe then doubles down on his idiocy.

“Republicans, meanwhile, have expressed their suspicion of Biden’s agenda which goes even further than what he announced Thursday.”

Really?

The republicans “have expressed their suspicion of Biden’s agenda?”

Wow.  These republicans are really sharp! You can’t get anything past them!

‘“By appointing the anti-gun Merrick Garland as attorney general and nominating David Chipman — formerly a senior staffer at the leading gun control lobby —  to head ATF, Biden has made clear his sights are set on restricting the rights of law-abiding gun owners while ignoring criminals and foregoing substantive measures that will actually keep Americans safe,’ the National Rifle Association (NRA) said in a statement.”

And you can add Biden’s name right next to Obama’s.

‘“Further, the proposals Biden announced tonight could require law-abiding citizens to surrender lawful property and enable states to expand gun confiscation orders. The NRA will fight this nomination and ill-conceived executive actions,’ the NRA also said.”

Good for the NRA.  At least they speak the truth, exhibit some common sense, and stand up for The Constitution.    

“House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., added: ‘President Biden plans to announce his attempts to trample over our constitutional 2A rights by executive fiat. He is soft on crime, but infringes on the rights of law-abiding citizens. I won’t stand for it. And neither will House Republicans. Follow the Constitution!’”

Those are nice words, Kevin.  Let’s see how you follow through on them.

“Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said, ‘The answer is not to restrict the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens, the answer is to go after violent criminals and come down on them like a ton of bricks.’”

Again, agreed, but why aren’t we dealing effectively with violent criminals already?

Word, words, words.

Boy, do I miss President Trump.

Ha! My Kamala Harris “interview.”

Yes, my friends…, MrEricksonRules was granted the opportunity to talk with our current Vice President, Kamala Harris.

Here are some of the highlights from my extensive interview.

MrEricksonRules: Good morning Ms. Vice President. I appreciate you giving us some of your valuable time and allowing us to visit with you.

Vice President Harris:

MrEricksonRules: Okay…, well, moving along…, is there anything you’d like to say to the XL Pipeline workers, union and non-union, who lost their jobs on day 1 of your administration?

Vice President Harris:

MrEricksonRules: No, really…, wouldn’t you like to express any compassion, or sympathy, for their situation?

Vice President Harris:

MrEricksonRules: Okay, well, I guess not. Let’s move on to the situation on our southern border.  Your, boss, President Biden, tapped you to manage the situation down there.  How has that been going so far?

Vice President Harris:

MrEricksonRules: That good, Huh? We see all of the pictures of how the kids down there are being treated, and that there are like 4,000 children in a facility designed to house 250. How do you respond to the criticism your administration is receiving from some in the media?

Vice President Harris:

MrEricksonRules: When former President Trump was in office, you were quoted as saying, “You look at the fact that this is a president who has pushed policies that’s been about putting babies in cages at the border in the name of security when in fact what it is, is a human rights abuse being committed by the United States government.” Do you still stand by this comment in light of your own administration’s treatment of these “babies?”

Vice President Harris:

MrEricksonRules: You have also been quoted as saying, “An undocumented immigrant is not a criminal.”  By definition, isn’t someone who breaks our laws a criminal?  Isn’t illegally entering our country breaking the law?

Vice President Harris:

MrEricksonRules: Ms. Harris, you have also been quoted as saying, “A wall on the border with Mexico was a total waste of taxpayer money. I am a strong believer in border security—but experts agree that a wall will not secure our border.” But, if walls don’t work, why was “a wall” erected around the capitol after the January 6th protests?  I don’t recall you being opposed to that wall being constructed? 

Vice President Harris:

MrEricksonRules: Okay…, well enough about the border crisis. Let’s talk about your proposed “infrastructure” bill, as you refer to it. Are you aware that only 6% of the $2 trillion dollars you’re proposing to spend is slated to go directly towards actual infrastructure improvements?

Vice President Harris:

MrEricksonRules: Seriously though, isn’t that like calling a Big Mac meal a “ketchup packet meal” that just happens to include a Big Mac, fries, and a soda?

Vice President Harris:

MrEricksonRules: Let’s talk about The President, Joe Biden that is, for a bit. Have you been impressed by his quick wit and his ability to communicate effectively off the cuff?

Vice President Harris:

MrEricksonRules: I guess those are my feelings as well.  Do you remember, during the debates, when you said you believed Biden’s sexual accusers and that he was a racist?

Vice President Harris:

MrEricksonRules: That was awesome.  I think that was when you were at your high-water mark, polling with like 2% of the vote.

Vice President Harris:

MrEricksonRules: Continuing along those lines, why do you think Joe chose you for his running mate? Was it because you could deliver the battle ground state of California?  

Vice President Harris:

MrEricksonRules: Maybe it was it because of your extensive foreign policy experience?

Vice President Harris:

MrEricksonRules: Was it because of your reputation as someone who could reach across party lines and bring people together?  

Vice President Harris:

MrEricksonRules: Maybe it was because of your sense of humor?!

Vice President Harris:

MrEricksonRules: Yes…, I think that was it. You seem to be able to find the humor in any situation.   

Vice President Harris:

MrEricksonRules: You don’t think he chose you solely because you are a woman, and a person of color, do you? 

Vice President Harris:

MrEricksonRules: Well, I see your people are indicating it’s time to wrap this up.  Thank you again for your time, Madam Vice President. Is there anything you’d like add before we’re through here?

Vice President Harris:

MrEricksonRules: I should have guessed.

Vice President Harris:

MrEricksonRules: Oh…, one last thing, Ms. Harris.  Were you aware that the highly respected, former Supreme Court Justice, and the Court’s first African-American justice, Thurgood Marshall, died almost 30 years ago, in 1993?

Vice President Harris:

MrEricksonRules: I guess your “handlers” should have told you.  Well, thank you again, Ms. Harris.

Well, there you have it, my friends.  My in-depth interview with our current Vice President, Kamala Harris.

I hope we were able to shed some light on her feelings about the state of our country and her feelings on other various topics.

I feel like she really didn’t say an awful lot, but you know what they say…, “It’s better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than open it and remove all doubt.”

They also say, “Laugh, and the world laughs with you; Weep, and you weep alone; For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth, But, has trouble enough of its own.”

True.  We definitely have enough trouble to go around in this world, and even more now thanks to Illegitimate Joe, “Cackling” Kamala, and their puppet masters!

The other problem here is, I don’t think anyone is laughing WITH Ms. Harris.

We’re all just mostly shaking our heads.

The day that angels saved the British Army.

Do you believe in angels?

Many of us do.

Here is one of my favorite stories about an experience with angels.

The German Army was on the offensive and advancing against the allied French and English armies.  

It was early in World War I, August 26, 1914, and there was a small British force fighting alongside the French army.  

During the battle, fought near Mons, Belgium, the French army retreated and the small British force was left to take on the brunt of the advancing German force.  

Note: Belgium, comparatively, is a little bigger than the state of Massachusetts.  Belgium is located directly across the English Channel from England, bordered to the south by France, and to the east by Germany.   

The odds were 4-to-1 against the British.  Although the British fought bravely, as they tried to retreat in the face of superior numbers, they finally reached the point where “the Germans were coming on in such overwhelming numbers that rifles and courage could not hold them off any longer.”  

Then, according to many witnesses who were actually participants in the battle, a miracle occurred.

The angels came.

There are numerous first-hand accounts of British soldiers who witnessed the events that day.

The so-called ‘Angels of Mons’ halt the German advance at Mons Belgium – the first engagement of World War One – Date: 23 August 1914

Some angels were described as a “shadowy army…of bowmen,” and other British soldiers witnessed “unearthly figures materialize…above the German lines that were winged like angels.”

There were other accounts that the angelic army was led by a “tall, yellow-haired man on a white horse, wearing golden armor and wielding a sword.” There were reports of hails of arrows being unleashed by the angelic bowmen which “cut down the enemy en masse.”  

“The Germans later found the bodies of hundreds of their men lying on the battlefield with no discernible wounds…” 

It was not only the common soldiers who saw the angels, but the officers as well.  

A British colonel is quoted as saying, “…the thing happened. You need not be incredulous. I saw it myself.”  Captain Hayward, an intelligence officer with the British Intelligence Corps, saw “four or five wonderful beings” and “figures of luminous beings.”

This event was widely-reported (and believed) in the British nations as many soldiers confirmed the angelic intervention.  Many articles and books have been written about the angelic intervention.

Could all of these English soldiers have been delusional?  

Could all of these English soldiers have been “seeing things?”  

There is no question the soldiers and officers who were there that day believed this event actually occurred.  

I am inclined to believe it occurred as well. 

Let me know what you think?  

Portions of my blog, here, were adapted from an April 2, 2009 article by Steve Collins, and from an article in a military history publication, Military Heritage, from the August, 2005 issue, from an article by Robert Barr Smith in the “Soldiers” feature of the magazine (pages 14-17, 76).

“Blessed are those who have not seen, yet believe.”

I especially think about these words of Jesus, spoken to “doubting” Thomas, when I reflect on Easter, Jesus’ death, and Jesus’ resurrection.

The number of people who actually knew Jesus, or knew of Jesus, at the time was relatively small.

Yet, look at how the size of His “flock” has grown, after He physically left us.

Who’s following grows like that after the fact?

According to the Pew Research Center, “Christians remained the largest religious group in the world in 2015, making up nearly a third (31%) of Earth’s 7.3 billion people.”

That’s, approximately, 2.5 billion people today!

So, after 2,000 years, the number of Jesus’ followers has gone from maybe a few thousand to 2.5 billion people!

It seems to me that, in itself, is a real miracle.

Just think if everyone was like one of Jesus’ own apostles, Thomas.

Thomas refused to believe Jesus was raised from the dead, unless he could see him, talk to him, and actually feel the nail holes in His hands, himself.

I guess Thomas’ doubting nature was really for the benefit of all of those who would not have that opportunity.

If even Thomas was convinced that Jesus rose from the dead, that says a lot.

As Christians, we have to remember that Jesus had to die.

Jesus being put to death on that cross was all a part of God’s plan to symbolically represent Jesus paying for the sins of all of the rest of us.

We can’t hold Pontius Pilate, the Jewish High Priest, Caiaphas, the Jewish Sanhedrin (The Sanhedrin was the assembly of Jewish elders, who were appointed to sit as a tribunal in every city in the Land of Israel, in this case, Jerusalem), the Roman soldiers, or even the Jewish people, responsible for Jesus’ death.

They were all just doing what had to be done.  

They were all just playing the parts that were required for the death of Jesus to occur.

If Jesus wasn’t put to death, our sins would not have been absolved, and he could not have been raised from the dead, completing God’s plan.

So, after Jesus’ resurrection and His ascension into Heaven, the disciples, minus Judas, ventured off into the world to spread Jesus’ teachings, establish the Christian Church, and testify to the events of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection.

It’s amazing when you stop to think about it.

The disciples did not coerce, bribe, or threaten people into becoming a “Christian.”

They simply echoed Jesus’ words and teachings of Loving God and loving each other.

These are not concepts people would typically embrace, being mostly selfish in nature.

But, regardless, look at how many people have since accepted God The Father, Jesus as their Savior, and the power of The Holy Spirit!

So, yes, “Blessed are those who have not seen, yet believe.”

All two and a half billion of us.

Hopefully, this blog may reach and possibly add a few to our number!

Who really pays for everything – 101.

Here is my second course, “Who really pays for everything – 101,” presented by MrEricksonRules’ University as a public service.

So, who really pays for everything? 

The answer is WE DO.

The 99% of us poor slobs who are just trying to get by and make a living.

We pay for EVERYTHING.

Don’t believe me?

Let’s begin the class and see if I can change your mind.

We’re all aware of these billionaire sports team owners in the National Basketball Association (NBA), Major League Baseball (MLB), and the National Football League (NFL), right?

They have to be really, really rich to pay all of the exorbitant, multi-million dollar, salaries of the players on their teams, right?

Wrong.    

They have to be really, really rich in order to join the club of sports team owners.

We pay for all of the exorbitant, multi-million dollar, salaries of the players on their teams, and here’s how it works.

Let’s take a look at the NFL, specifically, here.  

NFL team owners get approximately 70% of their revenue from television contracts, and the other 30% from ticket sales, concessions, parking, etc.

I think we all realize that when player contracts go up ticket prices and concession prices go up as well.

Hence, the $10 beer and the $6 hotdog!

And if you choose to pay $200, $500, $1,000, or more, for a seat to actually attend a game, God bless you. You’re getting ripped off, but you still only account for a small portion of the 30% of their revenue.

What about the other 70%…, the bulk of their revenue? 

The NFL distributes television revenue to all teams equally, regardless of performance. As of February 2019, each team receives $255 million annually from the league’s television contracts.

The league’s salary cap per team is currently $182.5 million, so, you do the math.

That’s why teams could afford to play the 2020 season without any fans in the stands and still do quite well.

Okay, you say, but the television companies are paying for that.

But where do the television companies get their money from?

The answer is advertisers.

Yes, the people who put those commercials on our TVs that we all love to watch so much.

This year, in 2021, a 30-second commercial for Super Bowl 55 cost about $5.5 million!

How can these companies afford to pay that?!

Well, they don’t.

We do.

Companies like Anheuser-Busch, Miller, Coors, Coke, Pepsi, just bump their prices by a nickel or a dime to cover their costs.

Yes, folks, we are all being “nickel and dimed to death.”

Isn’t it nice of us all to cover the costs of their advertising, which covers the costs of the TV companies, which cover the costs of the billionaire owners?

That’s why we should be upset about these people who play a game for a living, while getting paid hundreds of millions of dollars, while teachers make in a year for what they get paid for one game! 

That’s why we should be upset about these people, who play a game for a living, while getting paid hundreds of millions of dollars, while a doctor would have to work over a hundred years to make what they make in one year! 

So, if you eat, drink, wear clothes, wear shoes, drive a car, buy insurance, or use a cell phone…, you’re paying, whether you like it or not.   

So, who really pays for everything? 

The answer is we do.

Please be on the lookout for my next course, made available to everyone free of charge, from MrEricksonRules’ University.

Hey…, I’m just trying to do my part!

NBC is just “democrat propaganda.”

And in case there was really any doubt about this, Lester “the forehead” Holt and his “journalist” friends just confirmed it!

NBC is just one of the “democrat propaganda” entities, however.

Brian Flood of Fox News reports that, “NBC News anchor Lester Holt received praise from liberal media figures after saying reporters don’t need to hear both sides of a story before determining the ‘truth.’”

‘“I think it’s become clear that fairness is overrated … the idea that we should always give two sides equal weight and merit does not reflect the world we find ourselves in,’ Holt said on Tuesday night while accepting an award at the 45th Murrow Symposium.”

Spoken like a true “fake news” propagandist!

He doesn’t have time for “fairness,” when he’s pushing the democrats’ agenda!

C’mon on!

And don’t be concerned with “determining the truth!”

As a public service (disservice really), we’ll do that for you!

And, boy, these democrats sure like giving each other awards, don’t they!

‘“That the sun sets in the west is a fact. Any contrary view does not deserve our time or attention,’ Holt continued. ‘Decisions to not give unsupported arguments equal time are not a dereliction of journalistic responsibility or some kind of agenda, in fact, it’s just the opposite.’”

So, our friend Lester, here, puts the fact that the sun sets in the west right there with “fact” (according to the democrats) that there is no humanitarian crisis on the Mexican border.

No “dereliction of journalistic responsibility” there!

Can we harken back to an example (one of many) when Lester “the forehead” Holt had a hard time determining “the truth” on our behalf?

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, in an article published January 24, 2018, “NBC News is reeling after ‘Nightly News’ anchor Lester Holt appears to have been badly fooled by North Korean propagandists — giving a cheery report from a ski resort in the Hermit Kingdom that looked to be bustling when it was widely known to actually be a ghost town.”

Huh.

A propagandist being fooled by other propagandists. 

Definitely not a good look there.

“Holt — who returned early from North Korea after scathing reviews — reported for ‘Nightly News’ from the Masikryong ski resort on Monday, a facility that is the brainchild of Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un and is typically empty. The resort, built to create the appearance of a prosperous nation, was largely deserted during peak 2017 ski season, according to multiple reports.”

On a side note, this was done by Kim in an attempt to show his country was on par with South Korea, which was preparing to host the Winter Olympics.

“But for Holt’s appearance, the North Korean government appears to have brought in skiers — wearing identical outfits — and staged the scene, something Holt did not appear to realize.”

“The resort is a ‘source of immense pride for a country trying to present a new and modern face to the world,’ Holt said during his report.”

“NBC News did not respond to requests for comment as to whether Holt’s unexpectedly early departure from North Korea was related to the embarrassing ski resort snafu. But inside 30 Rockefeller Plaza, NBC’s more seasoned journalists were cringing.”

“Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un famously rode the ski lift, without skies, when touting his resort.”

“Holt’s coverage was overseen by embattled NBC News President Noah Oppenheim, who traveled with Holt and a camera crew to North Korea weeks before the Peacock Network will cover the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. Now Holt’s credulous reporting has cast a cloud over the network’s ability to accurately portray the Korean peninsula going into the Olympics.”

This is they guy you’re supposed to trust to tell you “the truth?” 

‘“It’s been reported that the state-of-the-art resort cost the Kim regime $35 million to build, even with slave labor, while most of the country starved,’ the Daily Mail wrote. ‘It is a bizarre thing to prioritize in an impoverished nation with a ramshackle infrastructure where around 40 percent of its people are undernourished.’”

‘“Yes, NBC is eager to promote next month’s Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. But that hardly required anyone to travel north of the DMZ to film propaganda for a regime that enslaves 25 million people — and holds another 50 million southerners as quasi-hostages, under constant (if low-grade) threat of war,’ an editorial said.”

“As for Holt, the North Korean trip is his biggest debacle since he hosted the first presidential debate in September of 2016, when he was widely criticized for anti-Trump bias, so much so that ‘NBC Nightly News’ dropped sharply in the ratings when compared to arch-rival ABC, and has yet to recover.”

Remember, Holt sees no reason to “hear both sides of a story before determining the “truth.”

Flood then continues, “Holt then said ‘providing an open platform for misinformation, for anyone to come say whatever they want, especially when issues of public health and safety are at stake, can be quite dangerous,’ before declaring the duty of reporters is to be ‘fair to the truth.’”

Of course, that isn’t taking into consideration your own platform for “misinformation,” right Lester?!

“Critics of Holt’s approach saw his comments as essentially a dog whistle to liberal reporters who see themselves as the arbiters of truth and, therefore, can cover the news from a one-sided perspective with the approval of NBC’s top anchor.”

“Cornell Law School professor and media critic William A. Jacobson didn’t think Holt’s remarks apply to the modern world where outspoken liberals are often working as journalists.”

‘“In a better world in which the mainstream major media had a history of fairness and non-partisanship, Holt’s point that journalism inherently involves filtering information might make sense. This is not such a better world, this is a world in which the mainstream major media wears its partisanship on its sleeve, manipulating the news cycle to the advantage of Democrats,’ Jacobson told Fox News. ‘In the real world, Holt’s advice simply justifies media political bias.’”

“Left-wing New York University journalism professor Jay Rosen felt Holt’s comments were reason to celebrate.”

‘“When the chief anchor of one of the major networks agrees that ‘bothsidesing’ everything is bad practice, critics have finally won a point and they should celebrate,’ Rosen tweeted.”

Woohoo!

“Fake news” all the way!!!

“Rosen followed up: ‘Someone like Lester Holt is a center of gravity among news workers and if he thinks it’s okay not to both sides everything that can influence thought and behavior across a lot of desks.’”

“CNN’s left-leaning ‘Reliable Sources’ 9which are anything but “reliable”) media newsletter highlighted Holt’s remarks as a ‘sharp critique of bothsidesism,’ a notable turn of phrase from a reporting team that almost completely reserves its criticisms for right-leaning outlets, including calls for censorship.”

Censorship is, of course, is the bellwether strategy for a fascist political party.

“Outspokenly liberal CNN White House correspondent John Hardwood simply wrote, ‘Thank you’ to Holt.”

So, at least we know where all of these “jounalists” are coming from…, as if we didn’t already know.

“Holt replaced Brian Williams as anchor of ‘NBC Nightly News’ in 2015 after Williams admitted to lying about an Iraq War story he’d told for years. He was suspended without pay for six months but eventually returned as an anchor for MSNBC, NBC’s left-wing (you mean more left-wing) cable affiliate.”

CNN, the Confused “News” Network!

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, “CNN raised eyebrows on Tuesday by declaring ‘there is no consensus criteria for assigning sex at birth’ in a straight-news report on issues regarding transgender athletes playing women’s sports.”

Is CNN even capable of filing a “straight-news report” at this point?

“The article by CNN breaking news and politics reporter Devan Cole headlined, ‘South Dakota’s governor issues executive orders banning transgender athletes from women’s sports.’ Noted South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, R., banned transgender girls and women from competing in women’s sports with a pair of executive orders.”

“Cole reported the executive orders ‘do not explicitly mention transgender athletes,’ but instead ‘echo of the transphobic claim, cited in other similar legislative initiatives, that transgender women are not women.’”

Sooo, if the executive orders “do not explicitly mention transgender athletes,” why does Cole’s title read, “South Dakota’s governor issues executive orders banning transgender athletes from women’s sports?”

“The CNN reporter noted the reference to ‘biological sex,’ is disputed by critics before penning the fifth paragraph of the report that shocked some readers.”

Who are these very confused critics who dispute “biological sex?”

‘“It’s not possible to know a person’s gender identity at birth, and there is no consensus criteria for assigning sex at birth,’ CNN’s Cole wrote.”

Oh, really?

I would say a penis with testicles or no penis with testicles is a pretty clear criteria for assigning sex at birth.  

“The line caught the attention of many readers, and The Daily Caller’s Mary Margaret Olohan pointed out it was a blanket statement without a source or quotes.”

‘“Remember when the propaganda outlet CNN ran an ad campaign about ‘facts’ called ‘this is an apple, this is a banana?’ Maybe they should work on ‘this is a penis, this is a vagina,’ Fox News contributor Mollie Hemingway responded.”

‘“We live in a literal clown world where the elites pretend not to know what it means to be a man or a woman. The only way to maintain your sanity is to reject this absolute nonsense everywhere you see it,’ author Allie Beth Stuckey wrote.”

Now, don’t get me wrong.

There are people born where it is not immediately apparent what sex they are.

There are people born with all sorts of abnormalities, both physical and mental, and we need to be considerate of this fact.

According to WebMD, “About 1 in 1,000 [or 0.1%] of Babies are born ‘Intersex,’ Study Finds.”

The term “intersex” refers to cases in which a newborn’s genitals make it unclear whether the child is a boy or girl.”

People who identify as “transgender” (A person whose sense of personal identity and gender does not correspond with their birth sex) make up about 0.6% of the population, according to a survey from the Williams Institute in 2016.

These ARE the facts.

It is NOT a fact, according to Mx. Cole, that, “It’s not possible to know a person’s gender identity at birth, and there is no consensus criteria for assigning sex at birth.”

Please note that, “Mx.” is a new, gender neutral, title abbreviation.

I don’t want to mistakenly assume any gender for Devan Cole, here.  

My position on this is that 0.1%, 0.2%, or 0.3% of the population does not get to dictate how over 99% of the population lives, or in this case, how over 50% of the population (women) are treated.  

If transgender women want to compete…, fine…, let them compete against other transgender women.  Don’t compromise the rights of biological women for the sake of transgender women.

If transgender women don’t want to go in a men’s restroom anymore…, fine…, give them their own transgender bathroom.  Don’t compromise the rights of biological women to have their own restroom for the sake of transgender women.  

People have the right to choose to “identify” as whoever or whatever they want…, but they don’t have the right to impede upon others’ rights as a result of their choices.

Have the democrats lost their minds?!

Seriously.

The democrats have either lost their minds, or they are just operating without any reasonable concern for, or accountability to, the American people…, including those Americans who voted for them, for some ungodly reason.  

Orrr…, the democrats, and their puppet masters, may just simply be trying to destroy America so they can rule over the ashes.

So, why do I say this?

Let’s take a look at just the latest case in point.

According to Brooke Singman of Fox News, “The Biden administration, earlier this month, awarded ICE [U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement] an $86.9 million contract through Texas-based nonprofit Endeavors [Endeavors is the name of the ‘non-profit’ organization] for hotel rooms near the border to provide temporary shelter and processing services for families who have been expelled from the United States but have been placed in immigration proceedings for their removal.”

Sooo, they have been “expelled from the United States, but we’re putting them up in hotels in the United States for who knows how long? 

This only makes sense in the minds of double talking, misinformation dealing, democrats.

Reuters news service reports, “Some migrant families arriving in the United States will be housed in hotels under a new program managed by nonprofit organizations, according to two people familiar with the plans.”

What “two people?”

Who are these people?

“’Endeavors,’ a San Antonio-based organization, will oversee what it calls ‘family reception sites’ at hotels in Texas and Arizona, the two sources said.”

Sooo, again, these illegal immigrants have supposedly been “expelled from the United States, but we’re putting them up in hotels in the United States called “family reception sites?”

Wouldn’t you consider “expelled” and “reception” to be direct opposites of one another?  

 

“The organization [Endeavors], in partnership with other nonprofits, will initially provide up to 1,400 beds in seven brand-name hotels for families deemed vulnerable when caught at the border.”

“Brand-name hotels?”

Only the best for all of these, illegal, future democrats!  

“As the current contract stands, the cost to taxpayers for housing 1,200 migrant families for six months is about $71,000 per person.  For a family of four, that amounts to a shocking $284,000.”

Wait…, What?!!!

Each illegal immigrant is going to cost us $71,000 per person?!!!

And a family of four illegal immigrants is going to cost us $284,000?!!!

That works out to $394 per person, per day!!!

$394 a day!!!

What kind of hotels are these illegals staying at?!!!

Better said, why is this “Endeavors” NON-PROFIT charging the government so much?

According to endhomelessness.org, “Seventeen out of every 10,000 people in the United States were experiencing homelessness on a single night in January 2019 during HUD’s [The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development’s] Annual Point-in-Time Count.  These 567,715 people represent a cross-section of America.  They are associated with every region of the country, family status, gender category, and racial/ethnic group.”

So, on any given day, the United States has over 550,000 homeless AMERICAN CITIZENS across the country!!!

But Biden and his comrades are spending $394 a day to house each new ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT?!!!

That’s why I say, “The democrats have either lost their minds, or they are just operating without any reasonable concern for, or accountability to, the American people…, including those Americans who voted for them, for some ungodly reason.”

Getting back to this supposed “non-profit,” I think we need to learn a little more about this “Endeavors” outfit.

Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn, from Tennessee, in a letter to DHS Secretary Alejandro [I never met a lie I didn’t like.] Mayorkas and ICE acting Director Tae Johnson, questioned the nonprofit’s [Endeavors’] past financial disclosures, and how the new contract funds will be used.  

Blackburn said that in 2018, Endeavors brought in “over $38 million in contributions and grants,” and noted that “IRS filings show that nearly $22 million or almost half of those contributions went to salaries.”

“This raises questions if half of the $86.9 million in ICE contract proceeds will likewise be allocated toward employee and executive compensation instead of migrant services or housing,” Blackburn wrote.

Ohhh, I get it now.

This “Endeavors” “non-profit” organization is one of these DEMOCRAT “NON-PROFIT” organizations, which really isn’t a “non-profit” organization at all…, it just says it is and all of the “swamp” rats look the other way…, as opposed to conservative non-profit groups who are examined under a microscope and held to the letter of the non-profit law.

Establishment republicans get their share of the blame as well, for never shining a light on these double standards and abuses of the law.

So, really, “Endeavors” is spending $25 a night per family, and keeping the rest for “executive compensation.”

Singman continues by saying, “Blackburn, though, raised concerns that Endeavors’ CEO Jon Allman did not provide ‘specific details about the contract’ when asked.”

That’s odd.

I wonder why not?

‘“It is unclear whether this nonprofit has ever previously managed a contract of this magnitude [It hasn’t.], housed a migrant population of this size [It hasn’t.] or served vulnerable children without putting them at further risk [It hasn’t.],’ Blackburn wrote.”

“Blackburn went on to demand an unredacted copy of the $86.9 million contract, and answers as to which hotels would supply rooms for migrants, which rates would they be charging.”

Now why would she have to specify an “unredacted copy of the contract?”

Think about it.

Why are democrats always trying to hide things and keep things secretive?

It’s because they are always up to no good.

The democrats always cry about “transparency,” but then they are anything but.

“Blackburn also requested information about children safety, questioning whether migrant children would ‘ever be placed in a situation where they are unsupervised by a parent or a guardian and left alone with an Endeavors staffer.”

“Blackburn also asked whether ICE was requiring Endeavors to conduct background checks on workers and volunteers, amid reports that the Office of Refugee Resettlement between 2015 and 2019 received more than 4,500 allegations of sexual abuse and sexual harassment against children in facilities. Blackburn said, ‘178 of the complaints were against staff at the shelters.’”

Hey…, this is a perfect set-up! 

I’m sure we’ll Bill Clinton sniffing around these facilities, along with the rest of his democrat, pedophile, friends!  

“Blackburn demanded answers from Mayorkas and Johnson by April 15.”

I’ll keep you posted.

Hey, Jabba, I mean, Cuomo…, what do you have to say about this?!

According to Natalie O’Neill for the New York Post, “One of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s sexual harassment accusers on Thursday compared an embrace from him to being ravaged by the powerful, slug-like ‘Star Wars’ character Jabba the Hutt.”

Ha!

Please continue!

“Cuomo accuser Lindsey Boylan’s Jabba the Hutt comparison stuns social media,” O’Neill added.

So, you’re saying Social media is “stunned by this,” but not by 15,000 elderly people losing their lives because of Cuomo’s nursing home COVID orders?!

I haven’t seen anything about social media being “stunned by that.

Just sayin’.

‘“Just the good old office welcome to women in the governor’s office of New York,’ former Cuomo aide Lindsey Boylan tweeted with a photo of Jabba the Hutt squeezing a repulsed-looking Princess Leia.”

“@LindseyBoylan Tweeted”

‘“Just the good old office welcome to women in the governor’s office of New York.’”

“Ana Liss, who has also accused Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment, echoed the notion that Cuomo is monsterlike in the comment section of Boylan’s tweet.”

‘“TFW [That Feeling When] he’s approaching your desk,’ she posted next to an image of a glass of water shaking as a dinosaur from the movie ‘Jurassic Park’ stomps nearby.”

Too funny!

“Boylan, 36, has alleged that Cuomo, 63, subjected her to harassment that included kissing her ‘on the lips’ as she left a meeting in his Manhattan office in 2018.”

“Allegations by Boylan, who is now a Democratic candidate for Manhattan borough president, triggered allegations from other female accusers, including his current aide Alyssa McGrath, 33.”

“McGrath alleges Cuomo harassed her by peering down her blouse and commenting on her necklace, among other incidents. An unidentified aide has also accused Cuomo of groping her breast in the New York State Executive Mansion.”

Well, Cuomo did serve in President Bill Clinton’s Cabinet as the United States secretary of housing and urban development at one point!

“In ‘Star Wars,’ Jabba the Hutt was one of the galaxy’s most notorious gangsters, with far-reaching influence in the criminal world and political circles.”

Hey…, if the shoe fits, wear it, “Fredo!”  

“A rep for Cuomo didn’t immediately return a request for comment Thursday,” although Cuomo was thought to have said…
