Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti described himself as “ecstatic” over the $1.35 billion that the city will receive from the $1.9 trillion “COVID relief” bill passed by Congress on Wednesday and set to be signed into law by President Joe Biden.Coronavirus relief bills have been enacted repeatedly for a year, mostly by President Donald Trump, and often after delays by Democrats, who were reluctant to see Trump take any political credit. The new bill, however, includes payments to cities and states, as well as pension bailouts for unions, and money devoted to long-term “progressive” Democratic Party policies.The Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday:

That's less than 1%, Yoga Pants. As a big-city dem mayor, you're a piker. ...predicting it will help the city cover coronavirus expenses, pay off key debts and rebuild government operations that were diminished during the pandemic. While that's the intent, chances are it will be treated merely as "found money" and spent on frivolous social programs elsewhere. Or just kept in the bank and doled out for political favors in the coming years.

I don't guess the powdered princes and princesses took into account that businesses are closed and people are unemployed, which means fewer tax dollars are coming in to pay this mess?

Bully for you. You get $1.35 billion with a B of our money. We get $1400 (unless we have a bunch of illegitimate kids)

Donald Trump has made a surprise appearance at a dog rescue fundraiser at Mar-a-Lago, after returning to his home base in Florida following a quick trip to New York. The former President delighted attendees at the event - held Friday night to raise money for Big Dog Ranch Rescue - as he took to the stage for an impromptu speech, which was shared to Twitter by journalist T.A. Walker. 'I didn't exactly prepare for this, but I was walking by, and I heard everyone screaming,' Trump was seen telling the crowd as they broke into rapturous applause.

President Joe Biden took a swipe at Sarah Palin, his foe from 13-years-ago, Friday as he celebrated the passage of the “American Rescue Plan.”In the Rose Garden with congressional Democrats, Biden said he may appoint Vice President Kamala Harris to implement the $1.9 trillion behemoth spending bill.“The devil is in the details of implementing this legislation,” Biden said.“I know from experience, when the president (Barack Obama) turned to me like I haven’t done to the vice president yet and said, ‘Take care of it. You take care of implementing the plan,'” he said, adding he believed Harris could do it.

It is hard to believe, but Joe Biden may not even be America’s most accomplished plagiarist. The “antiracist” radicals can stake a claim, given their own renown and remuneration and their ruination of others.By plagiarizing the tenets of communist China’s Cultural Revolution, the anti-racist grifters have turned white progressives’ self-loathing masochism into a veritable pinata of perks, power, profit, and tenured sinecures in the bowels of academia and corporations. Consider this excerpt from the 1966 People’s Daily op-ed by Chen Boda, “Sweep Away All Monsters and Demons” that kicked off the carnage of Mao Zedong’s Cultural Revolution:

Donald Trump has said he wants to settle political scores with the Washington establishment, and since he’s well-known among his supporters to keep his promises, it shouldn’t surprise anyone to know that he’s already hard at work keeping this one.Since emerging from the post-election, post-impeachment self-imposed exile, the former president has reentered the political field bigly with the intention of remaking as much of the political landscape in his image as possible.That largely means endorsing individual candidates for office, which we’re sure he’ll back up with personal appearances and rallies with candidates when the 2022 and 2024 elections draw nearer.

A clearly exasperated Jen Psaki on Friday refused to give the Trump administration credit for its work on the COVID vaccine and also admitted Joe Biden wasn't the best person to convince 'hardcore' supporters of Donald Trump to get a shot in the arm. The White House press secretary was asked repeatedly about the work of Trump and Operation Warp Speed on the pandemic and she was pressed on why there wasn't more outreach to skeptics of the vaccine, many of whom are also supporters of the former president. 'Let me try this again,' she said at one point during Friday's briefing when she was pushed again and again

During an appearance on "America's Newsroom," Meadows criticized Biden for attacking former President Trump over his coronavirus response and taking credit for vaccines created under the previous administration. Meadows said he found it "interesting," that Biden would attempt to take credit for the vaccine, created under Operation Warp Speed, given that Biden received his own coronavirus vaccination while Trump was still in office.

Now that the implications of the Harris/Biden administration are setting in, my Democrat friends (yes, I do have a few) are becoming very embarrassed. They bought into the propaganda that all the turmoil in Washington was created by the erratic and immoral behavior of Donald Trump. Their vote for Harris/Biden was a vote to return to normal. They didn’t realize that the Democrats weren’t offering a return to normal, they were offering the establishment of a “new normal.” (snip) My friends are belatedly realizing that the turmoil was not created by Donald Trump. It was manufactured by the Democrats, simply to win an election.

On Thursday night, a masked Biden tottered down a long, empty hall to a podium. He then gave the most bizarre presidential address in American history. After a grim recital of “facts” about the last year, Biden emphasized multiple times that Americans had better take the vaccine – and be grateful to him for his amazing ability to get the vaccine to Americans. He also insisted that, vaccines or not, the government’s in control and can lock all of us up all over again. (snip) Biden kept saying that he was going to tell the truth.

The Democratic Party stood virtually united “resisting” Trump for four years. Their stalwart opposition was ruthless and unwavering. It had been my hope that if there was any lasting legacy of Trump in the Republican Party it would be that he taught them not just to not walk away from a fight but to actually fight back.Yet again, I find myself disappointed. On Wednesday the Senate confirmed racial conspiracy theorist Marcia Fudge as HUD secretary, and Merrick Garland as attorney general. Fudge was confirmed 66-34, and Garland 70-30. How did Fudge get sixteen Republicans to vote for her confirmation? And How did Garland get twenty?
