President Joe Biden will present the nation’s highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, to 17 people, including actor Denzel Washington, soccer star Megan Rapinoe, gymnast Simone Biles and the late John McCain, the Arizona Republican with whom Biden served in the U.S. Senate. Biden will also recognize Sandra Lindsay, the New York City nurse who rolled up her sleeve on live television in December 2020 to receive the first COVID-19 vaccine dose that was pumped into an arm in the United States, the White House announced Friday.


Just in time to ruin the weekend.

Megan Rapinoe?! That means the Medal of Freedom has lost all meaning. She’s as unpatriotic as there is. Didn’t this person take a knee or something like that? Who chooses the recipients?

OH, good! We'll get to hear the fatuous, shrill daughter of the sniveling John McCain (whose military service is suspect at best) go on and on and on about Daddy. Listen for a swipe at President Trump coming from the fluffy daughter of JMcC.

Any honor, medal or award presented to ANY recipient by president J R Biden means NOTHING unless you LIKE to receive awards presented by a delusional and demented communist. So, SHOW OFF that award so everyone will know what a TOOL you are, comrade. The Hollywood contingent will show it off ANYWAY because THAT’s what NARCISSISTS DO.

Notice another event always surfacing to take as much attention away from the USA’s special day of patriotism the Fourth of July. This medal means less than nothing when Democrat Presidents give it out. I LOVE that the biggest left wing disaster of a Democrat president is the one giving it to McCain. I am sure we will be treated to emotional Meghan McCain videos and interviews - as many as she can manage to do. I will not be watching.

President Truman created the Medal of Freedom, to honor civilians who made big contributions to the war effort. John Kennedy converted into a way for him to rub shoulders with celebrities. Dementia Jo will cop some feels, sniff some hair, and wander around the stage. And if presidents want to honor angry lesbians, they should be given a Hilldo.

Denzel is the only one who deserves this award. The rest are/were nasty America hating liberals. Simone Biles should never have gone to the Olympics, as I suspect she knew she would not compete. She should have given the spot to somebody else who might have actually won something.

Oregon Democrats passed a law this year that could add more than 170,000 Medicaid recipients to state voter rolls – but it’s on hold until federal administrators act. The state’s two U.S. senators, Democrats Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley, sent a letter Tuesday to Chiquita Brooks-LaSure, administrator of the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, asking for quick action on waivers for Oregon and other states that plan to automatically register eligible Medicaid recipients to vote.

Kate Brown authorized the state police to round up the 12 Republicans who walked out of the Capitol in protest of the bill and bring them back to the Senate floor for a vote. If passed the measure will make Oregon the second state in the country after California to implement such a program.

It may be August of 2023, but the media still can’t quit COVID alarmism. The latest COVID freak out came on Wednesday’s CNN This Morning as the assembled cast wondered whether it was time to bring back masks. Co-host Poppy Harlow got things started by asking, “With COVID cases rising, some people are masking up. You have probably seen that in your neighborhood, work, etcetera. What does it mean for you and what does it mean for people at higher risk of severe illness?” She then introduced chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta and asked, “I keep thinking this,

Four fifths of New Yorkers say the recent influx of migrants is a 'serious problem' for the state, with many calling newcomers a 'burden' and souring on President Joe Biden's Democratic Party. Fully 82 percent of Empire State voters said the stream of some 100,000 asylum seekers was a concern, and more than half of them — 54 percent — said it was 'very serious,' a Siena College poll shows. When asked about the settling of migrants in New York these past two decades, nearly half of respondents — 46 percent — called them a 'burden' on resources. Less than a third called them a 'benefit.'

All eyes will be on Milwaukee tonight for the first Republican presidential primary debate. Despite more than eight years of brazen attacks on his opponents since riding down the golden escalator to announce his candidacy in 2015, Donald Trump has decided to sit out this debate. Unsurprisingly, the twice-impeached and now four-time indicted ex-president is, first and foremost, a swampy politician who won’t risk getting rhetorically pummeled by one of his challengers....As former Labor Secretary Robert Reich wrote in an essay last month, Bidenomics “is turning out to be the most successful set of economic policies the United States has witnessed in a half-century.”

Hawaii Democrat Governor Josh Green took to “Face the Nation” Sunday to agree with host Margaret Brennan’s assertion that climate change “amplified” Maui’s horrific wildfires. However, there were multiple failures on many fronts by authorities, including warning sirens that didn’t go off, delays of much-needed water because of “equity concerns,” negligence by a power company, and disaster officials who had no experience in emergency management. Green: "GOVERNOR JOSH GREEN: So it's usually tsunamis and hurricanes [that are a danger to Hawaii]. For perspective, we've had six fire emergencies this August. We had six fire emergencies between 1953 and 2003. That's how -- how fast things are changing.

Dick’s Sporting Goods Inc.’s stock tumbled 22% Tuesday, after the retailer’s second-quarter profit missed consensus by a wide margin, while sales also fell short., and the company squarely blamed theft for its woes. It was the company’s first earnings miss in three years. The last time Dick’s missed profit and sales consensus was in April of 2020, when it was reporting first-quarter earnings for that year. “While we posted another double-digit EBT margin, our Q2 profitability was short of our expectations due in large part to the impact of elevated inventory shrink, an increasingly serious issue impacting many retailers,” said CEO Lauren Hobart in a statement.

A summer surge of COVID-19 has some wondering aloud if we should return to mask mandates. For now, the official line, despite the media effort to rekindle coronavirus hysteria, is that it’s unlikely. But we heard that before, in 2020, right before public health officials dropped their mask tyranny on us. If they do it again, we have an obligation to say no. Are we calling for civil disobedience? Are we suggesting that Americans resist orders that are not laws but are instead decrees issued by despots? Absolutely, and without reservation. Masks are dehumanizing.

The former president previously indicated that he would be skipping the first debate, which is set to take place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on Wednesday.

That comes after devastating fires left over a hundred people confirmed dead with nearly a thousand still missing, including what is assumed to be many children. From the moment Biden touched down, it was apparent that he wasn't taking the situation seriously (if he even knew why he was there), and once he started to speak, things only got worse. In his first public appearance, the president decided to joke about how hot the ground was. He also brought up the death
