Washington Post reporter troubled by 'racist
legacy' of some birds

According to The Washington Post, it's hunting season for cancel culture and its latest targets are "racist" birds. The Post ran an expansive report on Thursday, titled "The racist legacy many birds carry," focused on the "birding community," which apparently is having a difficult debate "about the names of species connected to enslavers, supremacists and grave robbers." "Corina Newsome is a Black ornithologist, as rare as some of the birds she studies," Post environmental justice reporter Darryl Fears began his piece, noting she was hired to "break down barriers" at the Georgia Audubon nature preserve. "But overcoming those barriers will be daunting.


Must be a slow day at the Post when they can’t come up with enough fake news and have to settle for ridiculous news.

Rename the countries of Niger and Nigeria first. For obvious reasons. Keep picking at that festering infected open wound that is known as racism. That's what you do every time you bring it up. it will never heal, but it can definitely become much worse. Blacks like to claim whites forget the racist past. They haven't forgotten it. They just don't talk about it. Why? Because nothing helps heal it. Some thing cannot be taken back. That certainly applies to racism. Blacks know that, but the ones that keep bringing it up use it as a form of extortion. Its dishonest. Will renaming all those birds fix anything? Nope. Not one thing. But the inevitable demand for more money that will come along with the demand to rename birds is a great perk. Stop the BS.

When EVERYTHING has become race-based and offensive for the Social Justice Jackasses, you know that they are as demented as their "White Supremacist fighting" leader. How about negating "barriers" with COMPETENCE rather than COLOR ... with MERIT as opposed to RACE? WHAT?, you can't demonstrate MERIT? ..... well, come back WHEN YOU CAN.

Plans for $2 billion Washington methanol
plant ‘effectively ended,’ as company terminates

Plans for a more than $2 billion Southwest Washington methanol plant are “effectively ended,” according to a Friday statement from Port of Kalama officials, as Northwest Innovation Works — denied a permit by the state this year — will terminate its site lease. The project, years in the planning, suffered a big setback in January when the state Department of Ecology rejected a request for a shoreline permit required to build the plant, which would have been one of the Pacific Northwest’s largest users of natural gas. Northwest Innovation officials, in a statement Friday, said in the aftermath of that permit denial, Washington’s “regulatory environment has become unclear and unpredictable.”

If the grandmother of U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has suffered in Puerto Rico since Hurricane Maria in 2017, then Puerto Rican politicians are to blame, not former President Trump. That’s the assessment of an aunt of the New York Democrat, who was interviewed in Puerto Rico by Britain’s Daily Mail. Ocasio-Cortez made headlines earlier this month after posting photos from the Puerto Rico home of her 81-year-old grandmother, or "abuela," Clotilde Rivera, and claiming that the residence remained in disrepair, nearly four years after the hurricane, in part because "Trump blocked relief $ for PR." But when a Daily Mail reporter visited Rivera’s home this week

If you listened solely to Democratic talking points, including the so-called mainstream media, you would be convinced that America is a systemically racist nation and that Republicans are somehow hell bent on disenfranchising large swaths of voters. Both of these notions are patently false. In fact, thanks to sustained long-term efforts, in 2021 it is easier to register and vote now than at any point in American history – no matter what color your skin is. This is a measure progress of which we should all be proud. When the Voting Rights Act was passed in 1965, voter registration and voter turnout

Texas Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw replied to an absurd tweet from Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts on Monday in which she disparaged the GOP’s refusal to support the so-called For the People Act. The supposed election reform bill is an example of gross federal overreach designed to ensure Republicans never win another election. “Republicans have decided that the only way they can win is by preventing American citizens from voting. That should shock every American. But we can’t just sit back and watch their power grab. We have to fight back for our democracy by passing the #ForThePeopleAct,” Warren wrote.

More than 21,000 people have signed a letter calling for U.S. Catholic bishops to cancel a planned vote on whether President Biden should receive communion. Biden, a Catholic, supports abortion rights and has long come under attack from some Catholics over that position. The vote is set to take place next week at a meeting of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. "Pope Francis is clear that mercy, welcome, and pastoral sensitivity should be hallmarks of the church. Follow his pastoral example and listen to your brothers Cardinal Gregory and Bishop McElroy: Stop playing partisan politics with Holy Communion and cancel your planned anti-Biden vote," the petition reads.

For a woman who specialized in badgering political appointees with misleading and ambiguously worded questions when she served in the U.S. Senate, Vice President Kamala Harris sure is a hot mess when it comes to answering even the most straightforward inquiries. Some may call this “ironic.” President Joe Biden’s second in command joined NBC News’s Lester Holt recently to discuss the biggest issues facing the White House, including the chaos at the U.S.-Mexico border. Amazingly, Harris, who is heading up the federal response to the immigration crisis, was caught flat-footed by a very simple question about whether she plans to visit the border.

Kamala Harris is playing a historic role in 2021: the nation’s first black, Asian, female vice president to serve as a sacrificial lamb. Like many other women before her, Harris has been tasked with coming in late to clean up a mess made by her boss. Joe Biden probably wouldn’t do too well in a “Jeopardy!” contest, or even on a circle-a-word puzzle, but he’s smart enough to know that when you’ve got a problem you can’t solve, you should grandly announce a plan to deal with it by … fobbing it off on someone else.

The announcement by Israeli opposition politicians that they had secured enough seats in the Knesset, or Israeli parliament, to form a coalition to oust sitting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu represents a potential sea change in that country’s politics. Netanyahu is the longest-serving prime minister in Israel’s history — holding that position continuously since 2009, after an earlier stint from 1996 to 1999 — and has deeply imprinted his ideology and leadership style on the country. Many analysts say Netanyahu, who is currently facing indictment for breach of trust, fraud and bribery, has exacerbated deep dysfunctions in Israeli parliamentary politics. Israel has had four separate Knesset elections

Ahead of her arrival, Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei blasted the Biden Administration for "family reunification" policies that enable human trafficking and smuggling. "The message changed to 'we're going to reunite families and we're going to reunite children.

Images posted to Twitter show other signs, including one that tells Biden’s migration czar: “Kamala, Go Home.”

In their zeal to defund police departments across the country, Black Lives Matter (BLM), fellow activist groups and other radical ideologues haven't yet realized that what they're doing is racist by their own definition. The cities that the "defund" movement has hit the hardest have seen remarkable increases in crime. And BLM-inspired policies to "reimagine" the criminal justice system routinely result in more hardened criminals being quickly released from jail. The victims of these crimes?

So holidays like Thanksgiving will not be on the calendar and will simply be called "day off". Jewish holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur were also stripped off the calendar by the move. "If we don't have anything on the calendar, we don't have to have anyone be hurt feelings or anything like that," board member Dorene Roche said.
