Bits & Bytes

ALABAMA: On Wednesday, Gov. Kay Ivey signed two laws that take effect immediately. One revises the state’s process for updating voter addresses; the other bans curbside voting.

From Babylon Bee – “After hearing AOC’s heartrending and harrowing tale of survival against all odds during the January 6th Capitol riot, Congress has approved the addition of Ocasio-Cortez’s likeness in bronze to the Iwo Jima memorial.

AOC: From Not the Bee – “Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortex, the American face of progress toward utopia, says she’s in therapy to help her with the difficult events of the Capitol riot earlier this year.

In that riot, where unarmed dumb-dumbs meandered through the halls of Congress, taking pictures and putting their feet on desks, AOC very nearly avoided certain death.

You know, in her complex more than a block away where she was protected by men with guns who were sworn to take a bullet for her if need be.

But other than that, CERTAIN DEATH!

BORDER: In four years, the Trump Administration spent (or had begun the process of spending) just over $9 billion erecting approximately 400 miles of extremely effective border wall. And he had to fight hyperventilating Democrats in Congress, open-borders groups in the courts, and the mainstream media every step of the way.

Last week, a leaked HHS briefing revealed that, by October of his first year in office, FAUXTUS will have spent $8.6 billion on healthcare and transportation costs for illegal alien minors. The news barely received a mention in the mainstream media.

CNN: Since Trump left the White House, CNN has lost about 65% of its prime time viewers. Even worse (and by “worse”, I mean “better”), it has lost 71% of the critical 25-54 age demographic for both the day and prime time.

CRITICAL RACE THEORY: [2:58] – According to internal emails leaked to a bias tip line, the principal of the elementary school and the architect of the CRT curriculum talked about how to “quiet” the “pushy voices” of the parents who had spoken in opposition at a board meeting.

The principal said (without a shred of self-awareness), “I’m sick of giving these whackos a platform to spread propaganda without making any correction statements.

ELECTRIC CARS: “Batteries don’t hold their charge in cold weather. It’s bad enough if the cold weather kills your regular battery, requiring a jump start. Imagine if cold weather had the practical effect of draining your gas tank, too.” – Andrea Widburg

HATING TRUMP: In 2020, President Trump issued an executive order rejecting modernist architecture in official federal buildings and ordering the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts to give precedence to classical designs.

In February, FAUXTUS rescinded the order because Trump. And now, he has fired the four members of the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts that were appointed by President Trump. Each received a letter demanding immediate resignation.

Should we not receive your resignation, your position with the Commission will be terminated effective 6:00 pm tonight.

And they said Trump was an unpresidential, meany pants.

HUFFPO: S.V. Dáte, the Huffington Post’s senior White House correspondent, tweeted that the January 6 Capitol riot was “1,000% worse” than 9/11. Then, he responded to push back by doubling, tripling, and quadrupling down on his assertion.

His premise is that the Jan. 6 “riot” was a direct threat on the American experiment that had been incited by a sitting president.

LGBTI: In April, the first edition of the “Rainbow Index of Churches in Europe in 2020” (RICE 2020) was released. The directory ranks Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant church groups in Europe by their “LGBTI* inclusivity.”

One important feature of “inclusive” Christianity is not using the Bible as a “normative instrument for defining gender roles.”

*LGBTI stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex

MEDIA: CLICK [1:32] to see how Hollywood saturated the airwaves with BLM talking points and propaganda.

MYANMAR: On Monday, four civilians were killed and approximately eight were injured when the Tatmadaw fired a heavy artillery shell at a Catholic Church in Kayan Thar Yar village, Kayah State, Myanmar.

Tatmadaw (pron. tap ma. Taw) is the official name of the armed forces of Myanmar (Burma). Buddhist nationalism is especially strong in Myanmar, where religious persecution of Christians and other non-conforming groups are persecuted with the active support of the government.

SEXUAL ORIENTATION THERAPY: Research shows that homosexuality is not immutable. CLICK [6:50] to hear more about it.

TENNESSEE: On Tuesday, Republican Gov. Bill Lee signed legislation that bars public schools from teaching critical race theory. The law, which will take effect on July 1, allows for impartial discussions of controversial aspects of American history such as slavery, but bans teachers from hijacking the curriculum to transform classrooms into platforms for political evangelizing or to demonize white students because of their skin color.

  1. I appreciate the way you do Bits & Bytes, opening with something spiritual, closing with something humorous, with all the bad and sometimes good news in between.

    But today’s opening poster — I couldn’t help but see this as Jesus stepping out of a TARDIS, Doctor Who’s time machine disguised as a British police call box. Folks who first go in through the door always say, “It’s bigger on the inside!” In this case, infinitely bigger. 😀

      “bigger on the outside” … just like at the end of the last Narnia book. ❤

      TY. And in the age of FAUXTUS, I’m also trying to seek out more good and just plain skip some of the bad. I also have a policy of not posting about things that haven’t actually happened. E.g., no coverage when a legislature passes something, only when pres or gov signs it.
