Guramrit Hanspal, 52, has filed four lawsuits and claimed bankruptcy seven times to avoid being booted from the 2,081-square-foot East Meadow home he “bought” for $290,000 in 1998.

Media hysteria means Arizona election
audit may be on to something
Posted by Magnante 5/2/2021 4:34:50 AM Post Reply
While an uncertain public awaits results from the Arizona election audit, the immediate major media outcry, prematurely denouncing it, should be viewed as the audit's hitting a major media nerve. The media's reaction vividly demonstrates their fear of a searching re-examination of the election purity they have so arrogantly and unwaveringly proclaimed. After all, if this election were as well run as touted (with the customary admission to the mere occasional and inevitable, but insignificant, error), then the Biden-centric media should be cheerleading the effort. Shouldn't the audit, to use a favored media word, be anticipated to "debunk" the claims of widespread irregularities?

CNN’s “United Shades of America” host W. Kamau Bell wondered aloud during an interview Friday whether blacks should continue to believe that the United States is worthy of them shedding their blood to defend. Speaking to SiriusXM host Dean Obeidallah, the two were discussing recent police-involved shootings of black suspects in the wake of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin being found guilty of murdering George Floyd during a trial last month.In his comments, Bell first expressed sympathy for black families who have lost loved ones but then vented about what he appears to believe is a problem mostly unique to black suspects and police.

Joe “Amtrak” Biden made an appearance yesterday to push his infrastructure bill and to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Amtrak. Biden rambled on in different directions during his speech, but then he broke out one of his tall tales. He just can’t help himself with the awkward stories. First, it was Corn Pop and kids rubbing his leg hair in the community pool, and now it’s a story about the Amtrak conductor who grabbed his cheeks and said, “Joe Baby!” Biden has mastered the folksy “Joe from Scranton” and Joe “Amtrak” Biden schtick.

Novavax’s COVID-19 vaccine may be the next shot to receive emergency authorization in the U.S.. The company is preparing to file the FDA paperwork in coming weeks and could beat out other vaccine manufacturers such as AstraZeneca. Public health officials and researchers see the Novavax shot as an option to fill in supply gaps in the U.S. and worldwide after safety concerns emerged with the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. “I do think it’s going to play a larger role,” Lawrence Gostin, a global health law professor at Georgetown University, told Politico.

Fox News is reporting that the Democrats’ struggle with wokeness is expanding. It started directly after the 2020 election with losses in the House that many purple district Democrats attributed to the radical proposals of the Squad, especially around policing and the summer riots. These more moderate Democrats, responsible for the bulk of the blue wave in 2018, may be in for a startling comeuppance again in 2022. The radical proposals are now coming from President Biden, and Americans are taking note. Biden’s 100-day approval numbers showed the only majority support his policies have gained are in response to COVID-19. The administration’s scores on race relations, taxes and spending, China

A majority of Americans believe basic voter ID requirements, such as requiring a valid photo ID prior to casting a ballot, would make elections “more fair,” despite the steady stream of mischaracterizations from top Democrats, who contend that such requirements are oppressive and akin to the Jim Crow era. The survey provided a series of potential rules a state could implement regarding voting and asked respondents to rate if the suggested rule would make elections “more fair,” “less fair,” or the same. Notably, 64 percent of respondents said requiring voters to provide photo identification before casting a ballot would make elections “more fair,” compared to

A controversial mural of George Floyd in Phoenix has been painted over. The mural depicted Floyd's face on a $20 bill, with the hashtag '#the_price_of_black_lives' hanging above his head. The $20 bill was in reference to the counterfeit bill Floyd allegedly used on May 25, 2020, prior to his arrest and death at the hands of police officer Derek Chauvin, who was recently convicted of Floyd's murder.(Snip) The defeat came after some community activists decried the mural for its traumatizing capabilities and lack of input from black community members.
