Floodgates Open on African Inventions

As they used to say in the Soviet Union, the future is known; it’s the past that keeps changing. It started with blacks having invented peanut butter (sorry Ambrose Straub!), and quickly escalated to their having constructed the pyramids. Recently, we were told that blacks invented coffee. Now the floodgates are open: blacks invented toilets, circuitry, chairs, traffic lights, cars, and computers:

As her accent suggests, Africans might also have invented the English language. After all, Shakespeare was black — unless you want him to be erased.

The High Price of Low Bond for Lowlifes

The legal profession is among the many institutions that have been subverted by leftism. The result is a system of justice that produces horrors like this:

Jonathan Welch, the Detroit man who was released on a low bond after being charged with several felonies including torture, has now been charged with a fourth murder that happened prior to his original arrest in June.

This victim was 24-year-old Natayla Morse, whose head Welch allegedly bashed in before stealing her car and setting it on fire. The June arrest was for torturing his ex-girlfriend for 4 hours straight in the presence of their child.

Prosecutors then say 36th District Court Magistrate Dawn White set Welch’s bond at $100,000 / 10 percent cash surety. After posting the $10,000 bond, Welch walked out of jail and a few days later, his ex-girlfriend Zlayiah Frazier was dead.

As could have been predicted.

Prosecutors say Welch barricaded himself in his mom’s Harper Woods home and then shot at police before setting the house on fire. He is also accused of killing his step-dad Robert Bray Jr. and his mother, Flossie Nicole Bray.

These stories make no impression on the bleeding hearts of liberal judges. Remember the Texas mother left paralyzed by a “teen” who body slammed her on the sidewalk? Her attacker’s bond has been cut in half:

Joseph Harrell, 17, was ordered held last week on $200,000 bond following the harrowing, caught-on-camera Feb. 13 attack that left Nhung Truong unable to walk, Fox News reported.

Prosecutors had asked for the $200,000 bond because he had just been released on a $100 bond on Jan. 26 on an unlawful carrying of a weapon charge.

But his court-appointed attorney argued Wednesday to have his bond reduced to $100,000, saying his family could not afford to spring him.

Doctors give Truong a 50% chance of ever walking again. But even the most vicious criminals stand a strong chance of walking with progressives in charge.

Erasure of Donald Trump Is Underway

Donald Trump needn’t worry about the bad press he has gotten from the liberal media. None of it will be remembered. Trump himself won’t be remembered, because he will be erased as surely as Confederate generals (and the Founding Fathers behind them). The process is already underway:

New York State Sen. Brad Hoylman-Sigal introduced legislation Wednesday to change the name of Donald J. Trump State Park, which straddles Westchester and Putnam Counties.

The park was named after Trump for good reason:

The park was established in 2006 when former President Donald Trump donated 436 acres of land to the state.

However, Trump’s name anywhere cannot be tolerated because tolerance:

“New York State has always been known for its history of welcoming and embracing people of all cultures and backgrounds. Even our park system reflects these values,” wrote lawmakers in the bill. “The names of these parks and green spaces should embody the goals of uplifting, and unifying New Yorkers.”

Except for the millions of New Yorkers who disagree with Democrats.

Maybe Trump wouldn’t want his name on this park anyway:

Maintenance at the park was suspended in 2010 due to budget cuts. Since then, the park has remained in a state of disrepair.

As the state decays, New York’s Democrat rulers will shower $10 billion upon illegal aliens in 2023.

Democrats offer totalitarian intolerance, petty vindictiveness, surreal extremes of hypocrisy, and dysfunctional mismanagement. This story showcases all four traits.

Why Hunter Biden Is Not in Prison

The reason the Big Guy’s influence pedaling bagman Hunter is not in prison if only for committing a federal firearms violation is that we have two systems of justice: one for powerful Democrats and those they favor, and another for the rest of us. Rep. Tom Tiffany (R-WI) provides an example with the unwitting help of Rob Wilcox, Senior Director of Policy for Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun rights Everytown for Gun Safety:

Via Fox News:

The incident to which Tiffany referred relates to one in which a gun owned by Biden was thrown in a trash can outside a market in Delaware. A firearm transaction report indicated that Biden purchased a gun earlier that month.

On the firearm transaction report, Biden answered in the negative to a question that asked if he was “an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?”

However, Biden was discharged from the Navy in 2014 after testing positive for cocaine. Biden would later write a book about his issues with drugs and addiction.

Don’t try this yourself or you might wind up in federal prison. Unless of course you are among the favored.

This dual system of justice explains why a growing number of political prisoners rot behind bars for having trespassed in the People’s House while Black Lives Matter hooligans are given cash rewards for rioting at taxpayer expense.

University Pays $26,250 for 2 Hours of Dylan Mulvaney

Dylan Mulvaney’s stomach-twistingly repulsive female impersonation shtick is really working for him. He was invited to the White House. Hollyweirdos literally kneel before him. Best of all, cash is pouring in:

The University of Pittsburgh (UPitt) Student Government Board (SGB) allocated more than $26,000 for a student organization to host transgender activist Dylan Mulvaney during Pride Week…

The Rainbow Alliance requested $26,250 to pay for the event which the SGB unanimously approved in full, according to the Pitt News.

Even the most outrageous demands of transsexual militants are met with alacrity. They have achieved the pinnacle of oppressedness thanks to the aggressive backing of the liberal establishment.

The event was to include a 1-hour program and another hour of Q&A. While others struggle to keep their heads above water in Biden’s economy, Mulvaney gets paid $thousands per hour to be transsexual, thanks to the firehose of money — much of it confiscated from taxpayers — directed at higher, or as the case may be, lower education.

No doubt Mulvaney’s act will be even more lucrative, now that he has pushed tastelessness still further by identifying as a 6-year-old girl named Eloise:

Why Public Schools Must Be Abolished

Teachers unions are a cancer. In Los Angeles, this cancer has reached stage 4:

Local 99, which represents teacher’s aides, food-service workers, and other non-teachers in the Los Angeles Unified School District ecosystem, demanded a 30% across-the-board salary increase plus a $2/hour addition for the lowest-paid worker, reported the Los Angeles Times.

The LAUSD offered a 23% raise, starting with 2% retroactive hike as of the 2020-21 school year and ending with a 5% boost in 2024-25, among other perks. However, Local 99 turned down the offer and determined not to continue negotiations.

Pathological greed inspired the union to go on strike, closing schools throughout the district.

American schools are dismal failures. Accountability is required to make them functional. In addition to raiding the public treasury and driving an ultraleft political agenda, teachers unions prevent accountability.

Like the socialist ideology they espouse, unions work great for the people at the top:

The Daily Mail reported that United Teachers Los Angeles president and BLM member Cecily Myart-Cruz, who represents over 35,000 members in the city, rushed off to attend an NBA game in a box suite after announcing the strike.

Suites run anywhere from $3,765 to over $12,547…

Students were set back when teachers unions, backed by the Biden Regime, exploited Covid as a pretext to avoid work. When asked about the impact keeping schools closed would have on kids,

Myart-Cruz told Los Angeles Magazine in August 2021, “There is no such thing as learning loss.”

True enough — because with moonbats like her in charge, there is no such thing as learning.

Test scores are collapsing. Instead of learning to read and do math, students are indoctrinated with antiwhite race hate and a depraved sexual agenda. The only constructive purpose of public schools at this point is to babysit children so their parents can work. But unions have made teachers too lazy to be relied on for even this minimal service.

Meanwhile, taxpayers are forced to pay over $24,000 per LA Unified School District student.

This isn’t education or even babysitting. It is a looting spree.

Boasts the arrogant union thug Myart-Cruz:

“You can recall the Governor, you can recall the school board. But how are you going to recall me?”

Here’s how. Public schools must be abolished. A voucher system allowing for competition between private schools would guarantee access to education and provide accountability that would radically improve the quality.

EVs Make No Sense for Those Who Buy or Build Them

The electric vehicles that our progressive overlords want us to drive do not make sense for either those who buy them or those who build them.

Regarding those who buy them:

For many electric vehicles, there is no way to repair or assess even slightly damaged battery packs after accidents, forcing insurance companies to write off cars with few miles – leading to higher premiums and undercutting gains from going electric.

What gains? There are generous government subsidies, but the price of costly EVs tends to rise by the same amount as the subsidies, leaving only the opportunity to virtue signal — i.e., to showcase gullibility.

And now those battery packs are piling up in scrapyards in some countries, a previously unreported and expensive gap in what was supposed to be a “circular economy.”

Maybe they can bury the dead batteries in giant landfills next to all the unrecyclable wind turbines.

Insurance premiums are expected to rise due to cars getting scrapped because minor collusions ruin the batteries that are not cost-efficient to replace.

It already costs more to insure most EVs than traditional cars.

According to online brokerage Policygenius, the average U.S. monthly EV insurance payment in 2023 is $206, 27% more than for a combustion-engine model.

As for those who build them:

Ford Motor expects its electric vehicle business unit to lose $3 billion this year …

Ford projects [electric vehicle] cumulative three-year loss from 2021-2023 at $6 billion, including a pro-forma loss last year of $2.1 billion.

Yet they plan to double down on producing still more of them, presumably in response to pressure from Big Government.

Why do Democrats want us to drive them?

We can’t take their greenly righteous rhetoric at face value, because EVs are environmentally harmful.

Maybe the point is to make us more reliant on our communist Chinese adversaries, who have our president on their payroll.

More likely, the objective is to progressively end individual transportation.

Biden Judicial Nominee S. Kato Crews Flunks Law Class 101

Democrats regard merit as racist. They select personnel on the basis of two requirements: (1) left-wing political views and (2) not being a sexually normal white guy. This policy has placed Ketanji Brown Jackson on the Supreme Court and Kamala Harris a heartbeat away from the presidency. It may place Shane Kato Crews on the US District Court for Colorado. But not if Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) can restore some sanity:

During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing for several judicial nominations, including U.S. Magistrate Judge S. Kato Crews’ nomination to serve as a U.S. district court judge, Kennedy asked Crews an elementary question about evidentiary discovery.

Crews was given the opportunity to prove he made it through the first year of law school by explaining how he would analyze a Brady motion, by which a defendant compels prosecutors to turn over potentially exculpatory evidence. An example would be the video footage proving that political prisoner Jacob Chansley was not rioting much less trying to overthrow the government on January 6, but rather was escorted around the People’s House by friendly Capitol Police.

Crews was unable to answer the [softball] question.

“How I analyze a Brady motion? Senator, in my four and a half years on the bench, I don’t believe I’ve had the occasion to address a Brady motion in my career,” he said.

Kennedy forced Crews to admit that he does not even know what a Brady motion is. The concept does not relate to his historical oppressedness, so it never came up.

Ted Cruz weighs in:

“Wow. This is basic criminal procedure. If a [first-year law student] gave this answer, he or she would flunk criminal law,” Cruz reacted. “But the Biden White House would then try to make you a federal judge …”

The Affirmative Action mentality allows people like Crews to get into law school and even to graduate. Then Democrats grant them power over us, bestowing upon them the authority to dismantle the society our ancestors required many generations to build.

Denver School Brings Back Armed Officers After Shootings

Leftists seize eagerly on school shootings as a pretext to disarm law-abiding citizens. So key is this strategy to advancing their quest for more power that they are willing to facilitate shootings by pretending that the gun is responsible, rather than focusing on solutions that would reduce violence. But Wednesday’s shooting in Denver has jarred local educrats to step back from insanity:

In June 2020, the Denver School Board unanimously voted to cut ties with Denver Police, following the murder of George Floyd.

If anyone murdered George Floyd, it was the dealer who sold him the fentanyl that killed him. However, this did not stop moonbats from kicking out school resource officers to virtue signal their commitment to the Black Lives Matter agenda.

But Denver Superintendent Alex Marrero told the Denver Gazette’s news partners Chalkbeat Colorado Wednesday he will have an armed officer at each of the district’s comprehensive high schools — a step that he acknowledges likely violates school board policy.

In a letter Marrero sent to school board members Wednesday, several hours after a student allegedly shot two deans at the school, he wrote that he is “committing to having an armed officer at each comprehensive high school.”

The Board of Education agreed late Wednesday.

When it isn’t just children who are shot but the educrats themselves, suddenly they are capable of grasping that guns are required to prevent violence.

City Bans New Gas Stations to Prevent Climate Fluctuation

Looks like the planet is not doomed after all. The city of Louisville, Colorado is taking measures to prevent the climate from continuing to fluctuate the way it always has:

On Tuesday evening, the City Council of Louisville, about 20 miles northwest of Denver, voted unanimously to pass Ordinance 1851, which would basically cap the number of city gas stations at six.

Councilmember Maxine Most explains the objective:

“We have an obligation to take every step possible to address the changes to our climate that are ravaging our planet and directly impacting the health, well-being and livelihoods of the constituents we represent in Louisville.”

No doubt the supposedly rising oceans are of particular concern in Louisville, which is a mere 5,335 feet above sea level.

This repression would prove inconvenient were Louisville to grow. But that is unlikely to happen under moonbat rule. Most is a member of Louisville’s Economic Vitality Committee.

Development will have to take place elsewhere, as Louisville withers and dies on behalf of the climate.

Philadelphia to Pay Women $1,000/Month to Be Pregnant

Taking part in Black Lives Matter riots is not the only way to get free money from the government in Philadelphia. Women also have the option of getting pregnant:

Pregnant women in Philadelphia will be paid $1,000 a month as part of a trial program hoping to lower infant mortality rates in the city.

Starting next year, 250 expectant mothers will receive the no-strings-attached payments from their third month of pregnancy through their baby’s first birthday.

If they want more babies, a more sensible approach would be to stop aborting them. However, the liberals in charge have no problem with abortion.

They complain that Babies of Color are oppressed by premature birth and low birth weight. This is due to lifestyle factors, prominently including a junk food diet.

The solution as always is to throw other people’s money at them. Now they will be able to afford a double order of fries with their junk food.

As usual when it comes to moonbattery, San Franfreakshow got there first:

Meanwhile, the Abundant Birth Project pilot in San Francisco provides $1,000 monthly to mothers-to-be for a year.

If San Francisco’s reparations plans go through, for oppressed black baby mommas this will be on top of their $5 million cash payment for being black, a guaranteed $97,000/year income, and a home for $1.

Democrats can’t pretend they don’t know the demographic consequences of paying women to have babies — not after their War on Poverty turned cities like Filthadelphia into fatherless hellholes.

Massachusetts Bill Establishes Islam as Favored Religion

Liberals are vociferously insistent that government must never support religion. Unless the religion in question is climate change. Or Islam:

Focus On Western Islamism (FWI) reported [last] Wednesday that “the Massachusetts state legislature is considering a bill that would promote and privilege the participation of Muslims in state politics.” … The bill, which is entitled “An Act promoting the civil rights and inclusion of American Muslims in the commonwealth,” would “establish a commission charged with promoting the participation of Muslims in the governance of the state.” …

This commission would “identify and recommend qualified American Muslims for appointive positions at all levels of government, including boards and commissions, as the commission considers necessary and appropriate.” No such commissions exist for Jews, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, atheists, or anyone else.

That’s because Jews, Christians, and the rest are not associated with flying passenger planes full of innocent people into office towers full of more innocent people as a part of a war of eradication against Western Civilization that has been going on for many centuries.

September 11 so won over liberals that favoritism continues to rain down upon Muslims more than 2 decades later. Imagine the privileges Islamists will enjoy if a terror group exploits Biden’s open border to bring in a dirty bomb that kills thousands.
