If it didn't hurt the American economy so badly, I would be glad ze morons went out of business. Maybe they can all go to jail for malfeasance and they can practice their gender-neutral pronouns as they are being gang raped in the shower.

This means nothing. Look, I am as against the whole gender-weird movement as one could get. But a seminar on pronouns is not synonymous with poor banking practices. Get to the decisions that actually brought the bank down and skip all the things that are not even tangential to the equation. Other wise we really learn nothing.

#2, if the bank would host a “woke” seminar, then it’s an indication that their priorities are skewed. Maybe they placed “woke nonsense above sound business practices. Their heads were in the wrong place. Get woke, go broke.

I saw a video last night on Newsmax of them perhaps at their seminar singing songs and I saw the pronouns on the chalk board. This reminds me of the nurses singing and dancing in the hospital hallways during covid. I cry for my country.

Super woke folk are actually God-haters. Refusing to believe all proof of only two sexes and just one race (the human race). So as the song says, ''I'm gonna stand on the corner and grin when they drag your body in, I'll be glad when you're dead, you rascal you.''

He, she, it. Those are the pronouns that have worked for thousands of years. Still good, still work. Those are my choice. You can call yourself a chipmunk or an otter for all I care but that does not mean I will go along for the ride. I am not going to use some nonsense made up word to reinforce your mental illness.

I totally reject the left's unilateral efforts to rewrite the language, history, and law. As for Signature Bank, any moron stupid enough to buy 2-3% 30 year mortgages, or Treasury Bonds, should not be employed at any bank.

San Francisco residents lined up at a city board meeting last night to share their full-throated support of a wide-eyed reparations plan that would award every black resident $5million, wipe their personal debt, guarantee $97,000 incomes for 250 years and $1 homes. But no one at the emotional meeting - where residents burst into song and begged to be made 'whole' - asked how the struggling, debt-addled city might pay for it. Reparations are being considered in various Democratic cities around America as a means of providing compensation to the descendants of enslaved African-Americans.

After months of near-silence and innuendo, Florida Gov. and GOP presidential hopeful Ron DeSantis decided to speak about Ukraine, removing all doubt about his position. While his statement on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show makes a handful of valid points, it is ridden with a fundamental misunderstanding of the war and US geopolitical interests. First, the good. DeSantis is correct to criticize the Biden administration’s lack of clear objectives in its support for “as long as it takes,” which is a recipe for a long and intractable conflict — which Americans would be right to reject.

Again, my stance, particularly in this case, shouldn’t be confused with opposition to the current culprit in the spotlight: salt. Specifically, excessive consumption of salt. While I agree in principle with the notion, I don’t agree that it’s the job of the federal government to look

The South Carolina U.S. Senator asked how former President Ronald Reagan would have handled it and suggested the United States take a more forceful approach with its response.“They shot down our drone. What should our answer be?” host Sean Hannity asked.“Well, we should hold them accountable and say that if you ever get near another U.S. flying in international waters, your airplane would be shot down,” Graham responded. “What would Ronald Reagan do right now?

Some electric vehicle (EV) manufacturers are scrapping the AM radio from their cars, claiming safety concerns. Although conservative talk radio dominates AM radio ratings, it is also considered a critical safety tool, as it is one of the primary ways that federal, state, and local officials communicate with the public during natural disasters and other emergencies. Automakers such as Ford and Tesla have ditched the AM radio from their newer EV models, arguing that the motors on EVs interfere with AM frequencies, creating buzzing and signal fading, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal.

The City Council of Washington, D.C., recently approved legislation to reduce penalties for violent crimes, despite a recent surge of murders, carjackings, and robberies in the city. It was in keeping with similar measures approved in recent years in cities around the country to defund the police, reduce cash bail, and eliminate penalties for minor crimes like shoplifting and drug possession. Congress rightly overruled the measure under the city's home rule charter, but it was a sign of what's to come from D.C. city government.

Greta “Damien” Thunberg was forced to delete a tweet predicting the world could no longer be saved in 2023. So why did she delete this tweet? Because we’re already a quarter of the way through 2023, and if the world can no longer be saved, if it’s too late to reverse climate change (which is a hoax), Greta and her fascist agenda are no longer relevant. After all, if it’s too late to save the world, we might as well party on, right? Here’s what happened… In June of 2018, the high school dropout tweeted a quote from an article predicting, “climate change [which is a hoax] will wipe out all of humanity

In a joint press conference with Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin on Wednesday, General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, attempted to deescalate when asked if Russia’s downing of a U.S. drone was an act of war. Both Austin and Milley committed to continue flying and operating wherever international law allows, calling upon Russian leaders to operate their military aircraft in a safe, professional, and nonaggressive manner. The incident Tuesday involved a Russian Su-27 aircraft striking the propeller of a U.S. MQ-9 Reaper drone, which U.S. officials said was on a routine mission in international airspace when two Russian jets attempted to intercept it. The unmanned drone was diverted

Amid the litany of weather reports and coverage of a U.S. drone being downed in the Black Sea after colliding with a Russian jet and recent woke banks going under, Wednesday’s CBS Mornings made it interesting when they spent a few minutes fawning over San Francisco moving closer to offering $5 million, guaranteed incomes of $97,000, and homes for the price of $1 to Black residents as reparations. This was despite the fact that, as they admitted, a Hoover Institution estimate found it could cost San Franciscans of other races (and presumably those in poverty) $600,000 in new taxes. Talk about a case of mass racial arson.

A draft research report authored by Sean Kirkpatrick, the director of the Pentagon’s All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), and Abraham Loeb, chairman of Harvard University’s astronomy department was released on March 7 and focuses on the physical constraints of unidentified aerial phenomena. “…An artificial interstellar object could potentially be a parent craft that releases many small probes during its close passage to Earth, an operational construct not too dissimilar from NASA missions,” the report read.

And wartime, he noted at the end of the segment, leads to extraordinary suppression of political dissent.
