Media Trash Woke Olympics Opening Ceremony:
‘Depressing as Hell’

The woke NBCUniversal broadcasted a woke Olympics Opening Ceremony on Friday, and the verdict is in: the display was “depressing as hell,” a Daily Beast headline screamed. Corporate media has been quick to trash the Tokyo Olympics opener as a somber production performed to a “sea of empty seats,” which is a striking departure from descriptions of colorful and bombastic opening ceremonies in Olympics’ past. The nearly four-hour long NBCUniversal broadcast leaned “chillingly more Death Star than Panhellenic” from a “virtually locked down Tokyo” which was a “made for TV event in almost all the worst ways,”

Hundreds of Japanese citizens furious that the Olympics are still being held despite the coronavirus crisis gathered to protest outside the opening ceremony in Tokyo on Friday. According to the New York Daily News, the protesters paraded outside the Games about an hour before the ceremony kicked off and shut down a major roadway. The shouts of “Go to hell IOC” and “Go to hell Olympics” were loud enough to be heard inside the National Stadium. The protesters waved banners and flags and claimed that the Olympics is a potential superspreader event. “It’s unbelievable that the Olympics are happening in this pandemic situation,”

Crowds started early in Arizona Federal Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona for President Donald Trump’s rally, wrapping around and extending far down the block. Looking a bit different from the lackluster barely attended Joe Biden events, that we see here and here. Most of the Republicans competing in the 2022 Arizona gubernatorial and U.S. Senate primary races spoke at the event which was hosted by Turning Point Action. Before Trump spoke the fire Marshall was reportedly saying they’d reached capacity with still more lined up outside waiting to get in. The theater has a 5000 seat capacity.

Chase Kalisz got things rolling, claiming the first U.S. gold at the Olympic pool. By the time the morning was done, the powerhouse team had a whole bunch of medals. Six of them in all, quite a start Sunday for the Americans in the post-Michael Phelps era. “I’m happy to be here and kick the U.S. off,” said Kalisz, who won the 400-meter individual medley. There was room for others to shine, as well. Host Japan won a swimming gold, Tunisia claimed a surprising spot atop the medal podium, and the mighty Australian women set the first world record of the competition in the 4×100 freestyle relay.

We’re been writing about the runaway Texas Democrats and what a perfect example of pretentious Democratic hypocrisy and lies they are. They even called themselves “brave” and insulted the voters in this misbegotten effort. They’re so incredibly impressed with themselves for pulling a propaganda political stunt. Never mind that they precipitated a super spreader event – getting six of themselves sick with the Wuhan coronavirus and infecting who knows how many other people, but including at least one White House official and one Pelosi aide. But what was actually quite humorous was how disturbed at least one of them was that Joe Biden wouldn’t meet with them.

A man showing off his new gun to patrons in a Florida bar ended up shooting himself with the weapon instead, according to reports. The unidentified knucklehead was inside O’Riley’s Uptown Tavern in Pensacola at 11 p.m. Thursday when he pulled out the gun to show it to a man and a woman at the bar, the Pensacola News Journal reported Friday. The man then made a quick motion to put the gun into an imaginary holster under his shoulder when the gun went off and a bullet struck his torso, the outlet reported. “I don’t know if he was pretending to be a badass or something,”

Jill Biden is at the Tokyo Olympics. Joe Biden is not. He’s stumping with the Democrat candidate for governor in Virginia and joking (kinda) that the Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga “made it real clear” that he wanted Jill Biden, not him, in Tokyo. Joe thinks this kind of banter makes him look humble. Whatever. This is her first solo overseas trip since moving into the White House. Apparently, there are a lot of wardrobe changes. ‘Jill wanted to be here tonight, but if you turn on the Olympics and watch Team USA you’ll see Jill Biden standing there,’ Biden said

Last week WHO Director-General Tedros Ghebreyesus said his organization had been “premature” when it ruled out the lab leak theory of the virus’ origin. He went a bit beyond that and said that, having worked in a lab himself, he was well aware that “accidents happen.” “We need information, direct information on what the situation of this lab was before and at the start of the pandemic,” he said. The investigation into the lab would fall under phase 2 of the WHO’s efforts to identify the origin of the virus. The response from China was exactly

Joe Biden’s approval rating stands at 50 percent, down from 56 percent in June. The percent of Americans who disapprove of the president rose to 45 percent. Gallup tries to explain the drop. The new rating is from a July 6-21 Gallup poll, which also finds that 45% of U.S. adults disapprove of Biden’s performance and 5% do not have an opinion. It comes at a time when U.S. progress in fighting the coronavirus has stalled, with vaccination rates slowing and case levels now rising. The economic recovery continues, with unemployment declining and stock market values near record highs. But consumers are paying higher prices

A lifelong baseball fan, I abandoned the game this year after MLB sided with the Democratic Party in its campaign against ballot integrity in Georgia. It wasn’t just that: my home town team has put a “Black Lives Matter” sign and a memorial to George Floyd in right field. If I can’t escape politics at a baseball game, I’d rather go somewhere else. For the first time in decades, I haven’t seen a major league baseball game this year. Not only that, I haven’t watched or listened to a single pitch on radio or television. Then there is football. Commissioner Roger Goodell is driving the sport in a “woke” direction.
Gavin Newsom's Situation Gets Worse After
the 9th Circuit Slaps Him Down

One of Trump’s biggest achievements was shifting the balance of the formerly ultra-liberal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. That’s paying dividends in regards to a ruling against California Gov. Gavin Newsom, who is facing a recall effort and has seen his star dim over the last month. The court slapped down Newsom’s discriminatory and arbitrary shuttering of private schools, something he ostensibly did in response to the COVID pandemic. Oddly enough, rights don’t cease to exist just because politicians say so. This is a good ruling, in my view. No governor should have the right to shut down private schools, especially when the shuttering of those schools appears arbitrary

After nearly giving up on love, Dina Huxley’s life was falling into place. She found her soulmate, Iain, in 2018, through a dating app. They married a year later, and welcomed a baby boy in June. It was a storybook ending which crumbled just two weeks after the birth of their son. Iain, 46, was diagnosed with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer, which had spread to his liver. Instead of enjoying her new life as a mom, she began searching for treatments to help Iain, who has been in and out of the hospital with infections that delayed his chemotherapy. “It’s like we hit a tree and ended up upside down,” she said.

Paris—Some 160,000 people, including far-right activists and members of France‘s yellow vest movement, protested Saturday across the country against a bill requiring everyone to have a special virus pass to enter restaurants and mandating COVID-19 vaccinations for all health care workers. Similar protests were held in neighboring Italy. Police fired water cannons and tear gas on rowdy protesters in Paris, although most gatherings were orderly.(Snip) They were upset over a French “health pass” that is now required to enter museums, movie theaters and tourist sites. The bill under debate would expand the pass requirement to all restaurants and bars in France and some other venues.

Joe Biden used various private email addresses from which he would sometimes send, receive and forward government correspondence according to emails found on Hunter Biden's laptop. The concerns over the use of a private e-mail server could represent a conflict of interest and the services are also more prone to hacking than secured government accounts. Biden is said to have used various pseudonyms including 'Robin Ware,' 'Robert L. Peters' and 'JRB ware'. For at least four weeks in 2016, a worker in the Office of the Vice President, John Flynn, would send Biden his daily schedule to his private email address, Robert.L.Peters@pci.gov while copying Hunter according to Fox News.
