So, it looks like the White House is doing damage control on CrackPipeGate. After The Washington Free Beacon published a report on a grant being offered by the Department of Health and Human Services that would fund, in part, the distribution of crack pipes to “underserved” communities, the Biden administration faced outrage coming from conservatives and others. Even Snopes tried to come to the White House’s rescue. The Free Beacon reported: The $30 million grant program, which closed applications Monday

The government has free needle exchanges for addicts. Is a free crack pipe really any different??

To the undeserved on the FJB plantation, let them smoke dope is the word and we, the FJB administration will provide the kits. Unfortunately, the FJB administration did not provide blow straws in the kit so the undeserved can not produce works of art. But never let it be said that FJB is unaware of who are his constituents, and that FJB takes care of them all. FJB is their master.

They've been doing it for months in San Fransisco. Fittingly the space is a blocked off corner of the United Nations Plaza in tony downtown. The city provides rolling papers, crack pipes and other paraphernalia. Although they do not allow open drug sales within the enclosure of black draping, open drug use is acceptable. The city touts it as an outreach center where the homeless can connect with socialist services. I doubt the "housing" table gets much business, but its there to mollify a public too shell shocked to be shocked anymore. Hey, if it works in San will work everywhere! C'mon kids, let's put on show!

This has been done, before, in San Francisco and Seattle. The idea behind including pipes in the idiotically-named ''safe smoking kits'' is that smoking the substances is ''safer'' than injecting it with hypodermic needles due to HIV and Hepatitis C. If the HHS plan did not include pipes, then why did Jen Psucki claim that it was intended to reduce HIV infections? Is anyone going to ask her how lip balm and alcohol wipes are going to prevent HIV infection or make drug useage supposedly ''safer''?

You know, they don’t have the self-control of the good people in the communist commune.

Police call stuff like this 'drug paraphernalia'. Drug users can have extra charges brought against them for having a crack pipe. Will that still be true if the drug user gets their crack pipe (or needle) from the government? What's the difference between our government and organized crime? One calls itself a government. It's meant to be a joke, but it seems to be true. This all reminds me of the old Batman show where in one episode The Penguin becomes mayor of Gotham City.

I thought "safe smoking kits" were a new idea, but I was wrong. There is information online about what British Columbia included in its version of "harm reduction" kits. They come with pipes, tubing, screens, alcohol swabs and even instructions on how to clean your pipe the right way. Surely a complete list of "safe smoking kit" items to be provided in the US has been created and approved. Surely it cannot be a secret list, and yet the MSM and elected representatives are being told crack pipes aren't part of the kit. Let's have a look at the list.

They may not be specifically, handing out pipes in their "crack kits," although that is a logical component for a "crack kit." But, that is a side issue. The overwhelming question is why is the government providing free "crack" to addicts. Enabling addicts by giving them free "crack" is not helping them, it is making things worse and adding to the national debt. This is just one more man-made disaster to add to the string of disaster created by the Biden administration. I pray that the Republicans will run some good candidates come the mid-term election. Their record, so far, has been less than great.

GUMMINT DON’T FUND NO STINKING CRACK PIPES!!! MS. PSAKI: …there was inaccurate information out there, and we wanted to provide clarification on the allowable uses for the HHS Harm Reduction program. Q So, what is in the safe smoking kit? MS. PSAKI: A safe smoking kit may contain alcohol swabs, lip balm, other materials to promote hygiene and reduce the transmission of disea- — diseases like HIV and hepatitis. So, what was the exact language in the HHS Grant? List and quantity of harm reduction materials purchased with grant funds including, but not limited to: o Harm reduction vending machine(s), including stock for machines; o Infectious diseases testing kits (HIV, HBV, HCV, etc.); o Medication lock boxes; o FDA-approved overdose reversal medication(as well as higher dosages now approved by FDA); o Safe sex kits, including PrEP resources and condoms; o Safe smoking kits/supplies; o Screening for infectious diseases (HIV, sexually transmitted infections, viral hepatitis); o Sharps disposal and medication disposal kits; o Substance test kits, including test strips for fentanyl and other synthetic drugs; o Syringes to prevent and control the spread of infectious diseases; o Vaccination services (hepatitis A, hepatitis B vaccination); and o Wound care management supplies. And again, what is in a Safe Smoking Kit? Yep, it has alcohol swabs and Vaseline, just like Psaki said…. But wait, there’s more!!!

Masks off? Democrats try for a pandemic pivot 16 replies
Posted by Dreadnought 2/10/2022 11:13:53 PM Post Reply
Democrats are making a U-turn on mask mandates, just in time for the midterms. It’s happening among the party’s governors, several of whom are easing up their masking rules as Covid’s Omicron wave fades. And it’s happening on the Hill, where Democrats are suddenly lining up to call for rollbacks of the nation’s most noticeable pandemic-era rule. Their pandemic pivot comes as they brace for a brutal November election in which the virus — and the culture war that’s accompanied it — is shaping up to be Democrats’ biggest blind spot.

The NY Times just published a story about how Republicans got out ahead of Democrats on the inflation issue. The story credits Rep. Elise Stefanik for noticing last year that prices were creeping up at the grocery store. Back when economists were still promising inflation would be transitory, Stefanik thought this could become a big issue for the GOP. Early last year, Representative Elise Stefanik of New York, who was then campaigning to become the No. 3 Republican in the House, began to notice that the prices of fruit, bacon, milk and eggs were creeping up.

Teachers unions kept schools closed month after month in blue states, and even children as young as 2 are being forced to mask despite no scientific support for doing so. Indeed, masking has become a political statement, to the point that Democrats routinely report wearing masks outdoors

The last national poll tracked by RCP with a single-digit gap in Biden’s job approval came last week from the Economist/YouGov tracking poll (45/49). If that was the good news, relatively speaking, the bad news is that the same tracking poll

The White House response differs from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who smeared Freedom Convoy protestors as a “fringe minority” with “unacceptable views” and described them as racist.

The Biden administration is putting out new details on its effort to create 500,000 electric vehicle charging stations–with new efforts to push out funds to have them line interstates at 50-mile intervals. The administration is awarding $5 billion over five years to states to have them build thousands of electric vehicle charging stations. Another $2.5 billion will go out in grants to be decided later. It all comes from the $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure plan that was enacted late last year and that the administration continues to sell, amid the collapse of Biden's Build Back Better plan. The charging stations would work with all electric vehicles

A new Toyota commercial featuring Colin Kaepernick claims the former NFL quarterback's controversial national anthem protest was a "sign of respect to the military." The ad, which aired Friday morning on Howard University's radio station, says Kaepernick's decision to go "on one knee" during the national anthem "came as a sign of respect to the military" and "changed the world." The commercial also calls Kaepernick a "two-time Super Bowl quarterback," which is false. Kaepernick appeared in one Super Bowl, a 34-31 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
