Major League Baseball has expanded its contract with Chinese firm Tencent, the streaming service that briefly blocked National Basketball Association games amid a row over Hong Kong. The deal with Tencent gives the firm rights to continue streaming MLB games in China until 2023. Additionally, the contract will allow Tencent to broadcast MLB games in other Asian countries such as Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia, through its international service WeTV. News of the contract was revealed on Thursday, one day before MLB announced it will move the 2021 All-Star Game from Atlanta, Ga., in protest of the state’s new voting law. “I have decided that the best way to demonstrate our values

Coke and Delta are major sponsors of MLB, which I am sure this will benefit them with this Chinese deal. I think Biden, Atlanta, Stacy Abrams, and BLM just got played. There is a lot of friction between the asian and black communities. The faux voting legislation outrage was to give the appearance of supporting the very people that are getting a knife to their back.

There's a sort of perverse logic here. The slaves in Chinese communist labor camps aren't allowed to vote - - so there's no reason for MLB to worry about the voting laws over there. But - - as soon as the slaves in the concentration camps are freed - - then MLB will demand that they have full voting rights. Yes - - it makes perfect sense.

MLB is a multinational corporation that goes where the money is. If the higher profit margins are in China that’s where they will go. MLB messed up big time when they got into partisan politics and surrendered to Biden and the leftist Democrats. A big factor no doubt involved in their political surrender is they are scared of BLM riots outside, and maybe inside, their taxpayer funded stadiums. By surrendering to the leftist Democrats, MLB is bound to lose about half their American fans. Chances are they will move the All-Star game to some “woke” leftist Democrat City, or maybe even to China, depending on where they can suck up the most cash. MLB is no longer the old time “America’s Pastime” where Americans used to go and attend baseball games to forget all the tribulations in their lives and certainly partisan politics. If you don’t like what that corporation is doing, just don’t pay big money to attend their games, watch MLB on TV, or buy any of their high priced hats and shirts. If enough fans do that, MLB will either get the word that they should play ball and stay out of partisan politics, or go out of business in the USA.

Biden Gun Speech Filled With Falsehoods 11 replies

President Joe Biden made numerous false and misleading statements while unveiling a package of gun-control actions on Thursday. Biden falsely described how federal firearm laws work as he called for Congress to amend those laws. He pushed the Senate to pass H.R. 8, which would ban private gun sales unless done through a licensed dealer, by claiming there is a special exemption for sales made at gun shows. "Most people don't know, you walk into a store and you buy a gun you have a background check," Biden said in his speech at the White House. "But you go to a gun show, you can buy whatever

Joe Biden today announced executive orders for gun control in the Rose Garden, declaring “gun violence” a “public health crisis.” We’d given a preview of what he was likely to do yesterday and it was right on target. From Fox News: Biden is asking the Justice Department (DOJ), within a month, propose a rule to stop “ghost guns,” which are “kits” people can buy legally then fully assemble to create a functioning firearm that does not have a serial number. Biden is also asking the DOJ within 60 days to propose a rule on braces used for handguns, which make them more accurate

On Thursday, President Joe Biden announced new executive actions on gun control, trying to limit “ghost guns” and to make it easier for people to flag their own family members who shouldn’t be allowed to purchase firearms. In announcing his gun restrictions, Biden specifically addressed the Second Amendment. While Biden insisted that none of his gun control measures impinged on the Second Amendment, he also insisted that “no amendment to the Constitution is absolute.” “Nothing, nothing I’m about to recommend in any way impinges on the Second Amendment. They’re phony arguments suggesting that these are Second Amendment rights at stake for what we’re talking about,” he argued. Then came the key statement:

Joe Biden’s “infrastructure” bill isn’t about improving America’s roads, bridges, and other elements of our infrastructure. It’s about transforming America as radically as can be done through spending legislation. We shouldn’t be surprised, therefore, that the legislation includes an attack on single-family zoning. Stanley Kurtz has the details. He begins by providing the context: With the introduction of his massive, $2.3 trillion “infrastructure” bill, President Biden’s campaign to end suburban single-family zoning has begun. If you think this issue was debated and resolved during the 2020 presidential campaign, you are mistaken.

This week, on the basis of whole-cloth lies, major corporations went to political war with the state of Georgia. The lies at issue revolved around Georgia's new voter law, characterized by both Stacey Abrams and President Joe Biden as a new form of Jim Crow. What do these dastardly new voter restrictions do? They require an ID number to receive an absentee ballot, with language identical to that of federal law; they bar electioneering within 150 feet of a polling place or 25 feet of voters in line, including handing out food or water for partisan purposes; they increase the number of mandatory days of weekend early voting;

Politically driven change could diminish the trust Americans place in the court, Breyer said in the prepared text of a long speech he gave remotely Tuesday to Harvard Law School students, faculty and alumni. His talk, Breyer said, “seeks to make those whose initial instincts may favor important structural (or other similar institutional) changes, such as forms of ‘court-packing,’ think long and hard before embodying those changes in law.”

President Joe Biden will take new executive action Thursday aimed at reducing gun violence in the United States. Politico first reported Wednesday that the new measure — one of several “common sense” gun reforms Biden has promised to take — will require people purchasing “ghost guns,” homemade firearms without serial numbers, to undergo a federal background check. It remains unclear how many specific actions Biden is expected to take on guns, but reporting indicates the president will also seek to close the “Charleston Loophole,” which allows licensed dealers to transfer firearms to buyers before a background check is completed.
