BUBONIC PLAGUE: The US Forest Service was forced to close down popular sites in California’s South Lake Tahoe because members of the rodent population had tested positive for the plague. Apparently, it’s not unheard of. As one commenter put it, “Chipmunks and squirrels have had the plague for decades around the lake, nothing new. Just tell them to stay home and wear a mask.

CALIFORNIA: The special Newsom recall election is set for September 14. In the first 19 days of his campaign, Larry Elder has raised nearly $4.5 million, surpassing what his fellow Republicans have raised in months.

CUOMO: A Quinnipiac poll conducted this week found that 70% of New York voters believe Gov. Andrew Cuomo should resign and 55% think he should be criminally charged for sexual misconduct.

The kind of man who would light up the skyline of New York to celebrate advancing abortion’s culture of death, and who would order infected patients into nursing homes and juke the death stats to pretend it never happened, is also likely to be the sort of person who doesn’t place a high premium on the dignity of women in his office.” – Ed Condon

DEMOCRAT HYPOCRISY: CLICK [1:16] to see AOC and another guy I’m pretty sure is a Democrat legislator mask up for a photo op.

ELITISM: After receiving criticism for presuming to host a 500-guest birthday bash for his 60th, Barack Obama scaled his plans back to “a low key celebration with close friends and family.

Among the close family and friends who made the deep cut were FAUXTUS’ climate czar, John Kerry, and other celebrity climate change activists who flew in on their private jets.

FAUXTUS: CLICK [:17] to see Slow Joe check his notes, then announce that 350 million Americans have been vaccinated. In 2020, 331 million people lived in the United States.

FLORIDA: Joe Biden made reporters laugh by asking who Ron DeSantis was. CLICK [1:43] to hear Gov. DeSantis respond.

GENDER: CLICK [11:52] to hear Ben Shapiro ream out some of the stupidest Leftist TikTok videos out there. Why do these people think the rest of the world wants or needs to know precisely what someone else’s sexual preference is? Here’s another one for his collection: [:35].

HATE CRIMES: An article in a scientific journal calls for “extending federal hate-crime protections” to scientists who are criticized by supposed “far-right extremists,” including Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Hate crimes were a bad idea from the get go. Our justice system criminalizes actions, not thoughts. Motives should only come into it at sentencing.

BTW, today is 8/8 which is supposedly a very special day for skin-head neo-nazis, because H is the 8th letter of the alphabet. HH = Heil Hitler.

RACISM: Flashback to early October 2020 [15:52] – My favorite line is, “He doesn’t know what he’s talking about when he’s talking.”

RADICAL ISLAM: The International Society for Civil Liberties & the Rule of Law (Intersociety) published a new report about Islamic terrorism against Christians in Nigeria since July 2009 and it is absolutely harrowing:

  • 10 million people “uprooted” (6 million “forced to leave their homes,” 4 million “displaced”)
  • 72,000 “defenseless civilians” killed (at least 43,000 Christians)
  • 18,500 Christians “permanently disappeared”
  • 17,500 churches attacked
  • 2,000 Christian schools attacked
  • 700 forests and farmlands “threatened, … attacked, or occupied”

SCHOOL CHOICE: On Friday, Florida’s Board of Education authorized tuition vouchers for families who are unhappy with public school districts requiring masks or other COVID-19-related measures.

SHOW ME YOUR PAPERS: Lefties are showing off their never-ending supply of hypocrisy AGAIN.

  1. George Takei, famous for pretending to be a starship pilot decades ago, now pretending to be an authority on … anything, is simultaneously sad and hilarious. Beam him up, Scotty.
