The former president of the liberal Center for American Progress repeatedly came under fire during her confirmation hearing, as Republicans pointed to hostile tweets

Does Kerry need confirmation? Not that he wouldn't get it , he once belonged to an elites society that allows their buddies to commit treason without punishment.

Don't worry, Sleepy Creepy Crooked Uncle President Joe and his band of crazies have a few RINO Republican Senators that they can count on to defect. Murkowski, Romney, Sasse, Collins, and maybe even ol' Mitch once in awhile. That lets Chuckie Schumer give one of his RAT buddies, especially those who need to snooker the rubes back home that they're not a far lefty, a hall pass to vote "their conscience."

Biden nominees ??? Ask Biden to name 10 people he's nominated without a teleprompter (oh hell WITH) See if he can make it to 3. He'll tell you that 2 of them are the "first dogs" Champ and the other one.

Poster 2, Collins and Romney announced no votes for Tanden. Murkowski and Sasse have not announced. I don’t trust those rinos. They rarely miss a chance to sell out their constituents.

If Manchin were really politically savvy he would form alliance with some GOP & together they could run the Senate. Chucky would be the figurehead.

Becerra still has not accounted for, or answered, for his compromised computer by the Irwan brothers who were allowed to leave and return to Pakistan.

After watching the interviews on TV, there hasn't been one candidate who merited the job. Apparently Biden purposely chooses political hacks rather than qualified and trustworthy candidates. Who could trust any of these leftists?

Gov. Cuomo and the
Science of Political Decay

"Follow the science" is what progressive Democrats demand when the science suits them. And yet, like Pavlov's salivating dog and the meat powder, a whiff of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo prompts a predictable, conditioned response: a barking chorus of "whatabout whatabout" Ted Cruz or other Republicans.There are plenty of Republicans to choose from, but as Cuomo began to publicly dissolve, it was Cruz, the conservative senator of Texas, who served up an awkward feast of himself. Cruz flew to sunny Cancun while his constituents were suffering and dying without power during a killer cold snap. He made it worse with a weasel trick,

Henry Ford famously quipped, “Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black.” The Democrats take a similar view about what the public should be permitted to see on broadcast and cable networks. A Wednesday hearing conducted by the House Subcommittee on Communications and Technology made it abundantly clear that they believe we should be free to view anything we like so long as it fits the Democratic version of the “facts.” Titled “Fanning the Flames: Disinformation and Extremism in the Media,” the hearing was primarily devoted to testimony from “media experts.”

Neera Tanden, noted conspiracy theorist and rabid left-wing partisan, is currently watching her chances of becoming the head of the Office of Management and Budget burn to the ground. That’s come courtesy of her old tweets, many of which targeted the very Senators she now needs to vote in her favor.Over the past few days, Tanden has lost the support of Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, and other Republicans who might have been swing votes. She’s also lost Democrat Joe Manchin, who has pledged to vote against her. That means she has only one path to confirmation – Sen. Lisa Murkowksi.

And it was thought about as a Manhattan Project,” Collins saiCollins also noted vaccines “got done in 11 months from when we first knew about this virus is at least five years faster than it’s ever been before.”

Isupport Nancy Pelosi’s call for a ‘9/11-style inquiry’ into the mêlée at the Capitol on January 6. I do so not because I think there is any valid analogy between the terrorist attack on the United States by Muslim fanatics on September 11, 2001 and the low-level riot at the Capitol. There isn’t. On 9/11 some 3,000 innocent people were murdered, billions of dollars of property was obliterated and important symbols of American economic and military might were attacked, utterly destroyed in the case of the World Trade Towers, seriously damaged in the case of the Pentagon.

What causes wars? Innately aggressive cultures and governments, megalomania, the desire for power, resources, and empire prompt nations to bully or attack others. Less rational Thucydidean motives such as fear and honor and perceptions of self-interest are not to be discounted either. But what allows these preemptive or aggressive agendas to reify, to take shape, and to leave tens of thousands dead?The less culpable target (and wars are rarely a matter of 50/50 culpability) also has a say in what causes wars. The invaded and assaulted sometimes overlooked or contextualized serial and mounting aggression. They displayed real military weakness or simple political ineptness that eroded deterrence.
Vaccination Rollout: Red States
Outpace Blue States

Posted by Garnet 2/22/2021 5:59:49 AM Post Reply
Last Friday, during President Biden’s G7 debut, he announced a $4 billion program to assist in the distribution of coronavirus vaccine to poor nations. This is more than a little ironic, considering the chaotic vaccine rollout over which he has presided in the United States. It is particularly so in view of the ineptitude with which Biden’s fellow Democrats in blue states have managed their distribution programs, which have been far less efficient than their red state counterparts. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), for example, West Virginia has delivered twice as many full (two-dose) vaccinations per 100,000 residents than has California.

Did you know that you can see The Great Wall of China from outer space? Is that not absolutely incredible? I heard this cool little fact from a friend some time ago and began telling everyone I knew about this cool trivia nugget.(snip) I mean, it would be incredible, if it were true. You see, it is not true—not even a little. NASA and multiple individual astronauts have debunked this myth. Yet much of the general public believes it to be a fact, as NASA points out. But why? The narrative. That is why. There is nothing more powerful (and destructive) in today’s world than the narrative.
Cuomo hid COVID-19 data. But

You’ve heard the expression that the coverup is worse than the crime? Well, in the case of New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo (D), the opposite might be true. Cuomo is under bipartisan fire after an aide admitted that his administration deliberately delayed releasing information showing the true extent of covid-19 deaths in New York nursing homes, out of fears, according to the aide, that the information “was going to be used against us.” Stonewalling the Justice Department is bad enough, but Cuomo did something even worse: His administration provided inaccurate data to public health officials in real time, at the beginning of the crisis,

The FBI and US attorney’s office in Brooklyn have begun an investigation into how New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's administration handled the state’s nursing home crisis during the coronavirus pandemic, according to a report Wednesday. The investigation is not yet far along and is focused on top members of Cuomo’s coronavirus task force, the Albany Times-Union reported, citing a source with direct knowledge of the matter. Neither Cuomo nor any administration official has at this point been accused of any wrongdoing. Members of Cuomo’s task force include New York State Health Commissioner Howard Zucker and Secretary to the Governor Melissa DeRosa. The latter drew scrutiny this month after she seemingly admitted

The two dated for three years before getting engaged, according to The Washington Post's "Reliable Sources."

I'm the first to admit that I'm a city person through and through, so when I booked a stay at a campground for the first time, I was immediately apprehensive. I decided to rent a luxury camper van back in January and looked into campgrounds around New York City.

The same folks to bring you “Abrahamism”—the idea that Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are intricately connected—have narrowed their sights on promoting Mary, the mother of Christ, as “a Jewish, Christian and Muslim woman,” in the words of Catholic priest Fr. Gian Matteo of the Pontifical International Marian Academy. In a ten-week webinar series titled “Mary, a model for faith and life for Christianity and Islam,” the academy will seek to present Mary as a bridge between the two religions. This may be easier said than done — at least for those still interested in facts.

WASHINGTON—The Democratically-controlled House approved President Joe Biden's $1.9 trillion COVID relief package early Saturday, a key step for a measure that would provide millions of Americans $1,400 stimulus payments, ramp up vaccine distribution and extend unemployment aid through the summer. The bill known as the American Rescue Plan passed 219-212. No Republicans voted for it, and two Democrats voted against it: Rep. Kurt Schrader, D-Ore., and Jared Golden, D-Maine. The measure now heads to the Senate where it faces a rocky path in the evenly divided chamber.

Conservatives are sounding the alarm about an updated Amazon policy that bans books the ubiquitous billion-dollar company deems offensive or includes so-called “hate speech.”As noted by The Daily Wire, Amazon has ramped up its censorship on conservative views in recent weeks. For example, a popular documentary on U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was banned from their streaming service this past week. Before that move, the company deplatformed conservative Ryan Anderson’s book critical of gender theory, “When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Movement.”

Perhaps we’ve had it all wrong about who is really acting as president while Joe Biden goes to bed at sundown. Most have figured that the shadow-presidency we are currently witnessing would be run by Kamala Harris. After all, she’s the vice president and she’s nakedly ambitious. Yet, more and more, it looks like Harris is being pushed into the background while Jill Biden is really pulling the strings. Not only does she routinely act as the President’s crutch during interviews, she’s now interrupting him to articulate policy in language that makes it seem a lot like she’s in charge. This is some awkward, awkward stuff.

Former President Donald Trump continues to mount his political comeback, and whether he runs for a second term or plays the role of kingmaker, he’s going to remain active in Republican Party politics, much to the chagrin of the establishment swamp rats like Rep. Liz Cheney and Sen. Mitt Romney. And one of the first things Trump plans to do is get the old band back together, so to speak, as he prepares to form and launch a new super PAC. Politico reports that, according to sources close to the ex-president, he is tapping former 2016 campaign manager Corey Lewandowski to lead it.

Joe Biden spent the past two days conducting blunder-filled TV interviews and speeches. It was expected that Joe Biden was going to be a gaffe machine. That is, after all, the long-running joke about the avuncular former vice president—one that Democrats, and the Onion, generally found endearing right up until the moment Biden launched his third presidential run. Still, the velocity of self-inflicted wounds has been remarkable, prompting whispers about Biden’s age (76) and mental agility. It’s not just his penchant for expressing antiquated views on political civility but also his spouting off confusing strings of numbers during his last public appearances. The gaffes seemed to accelerate in the past week.
