Matthew McConaughey ‘Dumbfounded’ by Texas
Lifting Mask Mandate: ‘It’s Just a Small Inconvenience’

Original Article

Actor Matthew McConaughey, a Lone Star State native, said he is “dumbfounded” by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s (R) decision to lift Texas’s mask mandate, categorizing face coverings as nothing more than a “small inconvenience” that will lead to “more freedom” in the future. “My reaction to that is, I was a little dumbfounded by the decision,” the Gentleman star said of Abbott’s decision during a Wednesday appearance on CBS This Morning. “I understand ‘go back to work.’ What I did not understand was ‘pull the mask mandate.'” “It’s not the mask we’re afraid of, c’mon. It’s the word ‘mandate.’ Let’s not let the word ‘mandate’ get in the way of practical use

Most actors are dumb as a post. I know; I was one for a while, and worked with more than my fair share. They also have a pathological need to be the center of attention. That’s a bad combination. Matthew, I like you...a lot. But, unless you plan on running as a democrat in Texas, you just screwed yourself to the wall.

If you want to wear a mask, Mr. McConaughey, go for it. It's a much freer state today thanks to Gov. Abbott finally coming to his senses (or at least reading his polling numbers, which probably weren't looking good -- especially among his base conservative voters). But don't tell the rest of us what to do. You aren't dictator yet (though this is a good hint at what sort of governor you would be if you had the chance).

You would think that the Democrats would have learned by now that trying to pin the rise in anti-Asian hate crimes on conservatives was a failing strategy. But it appears they are slow learners. In the latest in a series of attempts to virtue signal about racism, President Joe Biden added to the chorus of leftist castratos singing their classic hit, “Everything Is Racist.” On Friday, Biden tweeted a subtle race-baiting criticism at those who reference COVID-19’s country of origin when discussing the pandemic. “Words have consequences. It’s called the coronavirus. Full stop,” he tweeted.

A 65-year-old woman from Grants Pass, Oregon drove an RV to Galveston, Texas. Her purpose in making the trip was to to “cross items off her bucket list”. She ended up in jail for her refusal to wear a face mask in not one but two business establishments. Terry Lynn Wright is the subject of a video that went viral showing her encounter in a Bank of America in Galveston. She refused to wear a mask inside the bank, even after being offered one by an employee, so the police were called when she would not leave the building. Watch the video then continue reading.

Federal officials announced it is no longer moving unaccompanied migrant children to the oilfield mancamp in Midland, Texas, after nearly 11 percent tested positive for COVID-19. The statewide average in Texas is less than 6.5 percent. U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) spokesman Mark Weber told the Associated Press they put their plans to move more unaccompanied migrant teenagers to the Midland facility on pause. The pause followed the finding that 53 of the 485 migrant teens tested positive for COVID-19 after being secretly moved by buses to Midland under the cover of darkness. Texas Governor Greg Abbott confirmed a COVID outbreak in one of the HHS facilities in Texas.

No one should worry. The Biden administration says there’s absolutely, positively, cross-my-heart-and-hope-to-die no crisis in any way, shape, or form at the border. Claims to the contrary are just right-wing propaganda and misinformation. So why will ICE be flying hundreds of migrants a day to border facilities hundreds of miles away near the Canadian border? Perhaps Biden wants us to pretend the border surge is mostly Canadians fleeing the oppressive Ottawa regime. Or perhaps it’s a surge in Eskimo and Aleut peoples fleeing climate change. I’m sure the president would dearly love either scenario to be true, but alas, they are not.

Last September, Project Veritas released a video that suggested there has been substantial voter fraud in Minnesota elections, particularly in the Somali community, and linked that fraud to Ilhan Omar’s machine. The New York Times then published a series of articles that smeared Veritas and its video as a “coordinated disinformation campaign,” alleging that the video was “deceptive” and “false.” Project Veritas sued the Times in state court in New York, and the Times moved to dismiss the lawsuit for failure to state a claim. On Thursday, the presiding judge denied the Times’s motion to dismiss in an opinion you can read here.

Eight people were killed in Atlanta last Tuesday. We have no shortage of explanations, including the perpetrator’s version, which many refuse to accept. Eros, rebranded and vilified as sex addiction, inspired a homicidal atrocity. Is that just a beard for anti-Asian violence? Untangling the suspect’s motive isn’t easy when race and sex are competing to dominate the narrative. Six of the dead are women of Asian descent, yet the shooter told police he wasn’t motivated by racial bigotry. Did the suspect visit Asian spas because he had some kind of hang-up about Asians, or is America more Asian than we realize?

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. --- Gov. Ron DeSantis has emphatically resisted placing restrictions on businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. But DeSantis this week suggested he may go after companies if they require customers to show proof that they are vaccinated, saying “it’s more than just a private decision.” The governor was referring to what have been called COVID-19 passports, a phenomenon gathering momentum abroad. “It’s a very, very bad idea,” DeSantis said of requiring COVID-19 passports. “Look, if you want to go to a movie theater or a concert or all this stuff, go.

A new study from a Los Angeles hospital pushes for injecting men with the female sex hormone progesterone to treat COVID-19. The trial, carried out by pulmonologist Sara Ghandehari of the Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles, recruited 40 male patients hospitalized with COVID-19. “As an ICU doctor, I was struck by the gender disparity among COVID-19 patients who were very sick, remained in the hospital, and needed ventilators,” she emphasized. “One group acted as a control sample, for comparison, and received only the standard medical care given at that time for the disease. The experimental group, meanwhile, also received 100-milligram injections of progesterone twice daily for five days
