Capitol Police Officer’s Cause of Death Undisclosed
The FBI cannot “disclose the cause of death” of officer Brian Sicknick. Why not? We already know he was not beaten to death with a fire extinguisher. What are they hiding…again?
Mississippi and Texas this week opened all businesses and eliminated the mask mandate. Naturally, biden called it “Neanderthal thinking.” We will find out soon enough what the probable results will be.
Covid Relief Bill Passes
The Covid-19 boondoggle passed by the Democrat House has appropriated 9 percent of the $1.9 trillion cost of the bill to actual needs of the people as regards the pandemic. Most of the taxpayer money will be pork barrel spending, which means your Congress man or woman is stealing your tax money to pay his friends for projects which do nothing to help you, other Americans or our great country.
H.R.1 “For the People Act”
House Democrats this week also passed legislation ( H.R.1 or “the For the People Act‘…which is a joke in itself) to expand voter participation by voiding state voter-identification requirements and making permanent widespread mail-in voting, requiring states to offer online and same-day voter registration as well as 15 days of early voting nationwide. It would mandate the creation of independent commissions to draw voting districts in each state to end gerrymandering. There is much more leftist nonsense in this bill. Hopefully it will be stopped in the senate, but I am not holding my breath.
These communists we have as legislators are shoving as much progressive bullshit as they can right up our collective asses. Our voices are not heard on any of this garbage, who in their right mind would vote for this nonsense? In their defense, we did not vote on any of Trump’s policies, we voted for him to enact his agenda: What American would vote against Constitutional amendment protections? Border security? America first? Law and order? Strong military? Lower taxes? Less government regulation? Trump did ALL these things and more…and got no credit from anyone for the good things he did for We the People.
H. R. 127 Gun Control Legislation
Next week, Speaker Nancy Pelosi is planning a legislative gun control push to establish mandatory so-called universal background checks (H.R.8) and to close the so-called “Charleston Loophole” (H.R. 1446).
The universal background check proposal is unenforceable without, and is a necessary first step towards a national gun registration. The “Charleston Loophole” would extend the current 3 business day delay period to at least 10 business days and then puts the onus on the buyer to petition the Attorney General for an expedited review that would take an additional 10 business days.
Cases Dismissed Against Sanctuary Cities
The Department of Justice on Friday threw out all pending cases against Sanctuary Cities. What?
The difference between Equality and Equity as regards the leftist attempt to change the millennium of Anglo-Saxon law and political evolution:
Equality means equal treatment, unbiased competition and impartially judged outcomes.
Equity means equal outcomes, achieved if necessary by unequal treatment, biased competition and preferential judging.
Instead of making their case openly and honestly, advocates of equity twist and turn to avoid revealing their radical goal of re-engineering society through coercion.Since the ultimate goal is achieving equal outcomes, these evasions raise the hardest question of all; Isn’t equity just a new brand name for the oldest program of achieving equal outcomes? Its name is SOCIALISM… Charles Lipson, University of Chicago

TEDDY ROOSEVELT ON IMMIGRANTS IN AMERICA…1907
In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag…We have room for but one language here and that is the English language…and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”
