CNN: Oy vey. CLICK [1:37] to hear Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) liken a few hundred unarmed people entering the Capitol Building on January 6th with the persecution of the Hebrew slaves in Egypt 3,500 years ago and the day 353 Japanese aircraft attacked Pearl Harbor, damaging or sinking many of our planes and ships, wounding 1,140 Americans and killing more than 2,300.

January 6 is a day like that. It’s a day that should be remembered in America because our democracy was at stake.

N.b., the former occurred nearly 3,500 years ago, not 200 or 2,000 years ago as Rep. Cohen says. For a Jew to get something so basic wrong does beg the question of why we should listen to his opinion about anything historical.

GENDER: Remember this? “You know, I’ve told my daughters, granddaughters from the time they got old enough to understand what I was saying — and I mean it: There’s not a single thing a man can do that a woman can’t do as well or better. Not a single thing.” – FAUXTUS

GHISLAINE MAXWELL: Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC) in Brooklyn was forced to order Jeffrey Epstein’s bff to clean her filthy jail cell, because apparently, the jailed socialite and heiress is disgusting inside and out.

Besides never cleaning her quarters, she also “frequently did not flush her toilet after using it, which caused the cell to smell.” I can see her maybe waiting for a maid to clean, but not flush? Those toilets are in the cells, right next to the beds. Ewwwww. Maybe the demons that she invited into her heart and soul enjoy the smell of poo in the morning.

VAX: Nearly 40% of Marines have declined the COVID-19 vaccine. Officials say most of the vaccine hesitancy stems from concerns about the speed at which the vaccines were developed and fears over long-term effects.

Mercy is the love we don’t deserve

Join Fr. Mike Schmitz as he celebrates Divine Mercy Sunday Mass at the University of Minnesota – Duluth. [47:03]

The homily (begins at 8:45) on mercy is outstanding. I highly recommend it to all of you. The story he tells about Rudolph Höss, the Commandant of Auschwitz, is stunning.

I looked Höss up on Wikipedia. The article confirms Fr. Mike’s story about his last days. But the article also includes these paragraphs, which I think are particularly pertinent to us today.

In a farewell letter to his wife, Höss wrote on 11 April:

Based on my present knowledge I can see today clearly, severely and bitterly for me, that the entire ideology about the world in which I believed so firmly and unswervingly was based on completely wrong premises and had to absolutely collapse one day. And so my actions in the service of this ideology were completely wrong, even though I faithfully believed the idea was correct. Now it was very logical that strong doubts grew within me, and whether my turning away from my belief in God was based on completely wrong premises. It was a hard struggle. But I have again found my faith in my God.

The same day in a farewell letter to his children, Höss told his eldest son:

Keep your good heart. Become a person who lets himself be guided primarily by warmth and humanity. Learn to think and judge for yourself, responsibly. Don’t accept everything without criticism and as absolutely true… The biggest mistake of my life was that I believed everything faithfully which came from the top, and I didn’t dare to have the least bit of doubt about the truth of that which was presented to me. … In all your undertakings, don’t just let your mind speak, but listen above all to the voice in your heart.

BIG TECH CENSORSHIP: YouTube pulled a video of Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-FL, speaking with medical experts who suggested that children should not be mandated to wear masks.

In the video, Stanford professor Dr. Scott Atlas said: “I think that the masks in schools, there’s no scientific rationale or logic to have children wear masks in schools.

YouTube said it removed the video because it “contradicts the consensus of local and global health authorities.”

BLM: The co-founder of the Black Lives Matter social “justice” movement just bought a lovely new home (with a guest house) in L.A.’s rustic and semi-remote Topanga Canyon, about 15 minutes from Malibu. Public records show it sold for a tad more than $1.4 million.

It seems to me that the American Dream is actually so real and so exceptional that even those who make money off their disdain for her can get rich! It’s too bad for all those black businesses BLM burned down last summer though…” – Joel Abbott

COVID-19: Progs are having trouble explaining away why some of their states (the ones that have kept strict stay-at-home rules in place) are now seeing surges in COVID-19 cases, while many Republicans states (the ones that rushed to reopen) are experiencing sizable drops.

Planet Moron at Not The Bee says, “As anyone with a cognitive ability north that of patio furniture could have told you, shutting people up inside where the virus spreads quickly and easily is a ‘bad’ idea whereas permitting people to move about as is their right, is a ‘good’ idea, particularly for the people least vulnerable to the virus. Anyone paying attention already knew this.

Michigan’s Governor Whitmer did not and does not know this. Her state, which has had the most draconian lockdowns, is having a huge surge in cases. Despite the fact that individuals under the age of 50 account for only 3% of all COVID-19 deaths, Queen Jackboot wants to suspend in-person high school classes, all youth sports and indoor restaurant dining. So more people can stay at home … where the disease is spread most effectively.

HUNTER’S LAPTOP: CLICK [2:28] to see more data proving the laptop did belong to him. His chances of being held to account for anything are slim to none. But eternal judgment awaits.

MASK NAZIS: CLICK [4:16] to see Tucker interview a coach who has been fired to refusing to implement an insane mask policy.

MICHIGAN: We have been told over and over that outside interference of voting machines was impossible, because the machines had no access to the internet.

On Friday, Michigan Constitutional Attorney Matthew Deperno released his much anticipated Michigan Elections Forensics Report detailing how they found modem chips on the voting machines.

The report also details how they found 66,194 ballots cast in just 9 counties by people who were not registered to vote.

But this was “the most secure election in history!So shut up.

MORONS: Upon taking office, FAUXTUS immediately overturned all of President Trump’s successful efforts to convince people not to migrate here illegally.

The ensuing FLOOD of illegals (many reportedly wearing BIDEN t-shirts) has caused the worst immigration crisis seen in 20 years.

On Friday, Reuters reported the FAUX fools in the White House are actually considering sending cash payments to residents of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, in a bid to prevent them from making the trek north as the idiots who caused it struggle to cope with it.

Roberta Jacobson, the White House’s southern border coordinator, said, “We’re looking at all of the productive options to address both the economic reasons people may be migrating, as well as the protection and security reasons.”

I’m guessing that NONE of the “productive options”include re-instating anything Donald Trump did that worked. Because that would make too much sense.

NEW MEXICO: On Thursday, Gov. Michelle Grisham [D] signed her second profoundly anti-life law, this time legalize assisted suicide in the state. Barely two months ago, she also signed a pro-abortion law that will keep abortions up to birth legal for years to come and could force doctors and nurses to help abort unborn babies.

RAAACISM: The progs are really working the “public health crisis” angle hard. Earlier this week, they declared that gun were a public health threat. Now it’s racism.

The Nazis used the same angle. First they had a big public health campaign in which they pushed the public health threat of vermin, like cockroaches, and recommending the use of poisons to eliminate them. Then, they began to refer to Jews as vermin and cockroaches.

The Nazi propaganda paper, Der Sturmer, ran contests encouraging German children to write in. One little girl wrote, “People are so bothered by the way we’re treating the Jews. They can’t understand it, because [Jews] are God’s creatures. But cockroaches are also God’s creatures, and we destroy them.

Zyklon B, the gas used to exterminate Jews in Nazi camps, was a variant on a pesticide used to fumigate silos, goods wagons, ships, and mills.

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM: For the fifth time, the Supreme Court has rejected the Ninth Circuit’s analysis of California’s COVID restrictions on religious exercise. The latest ruling went 5-4 against a California COVID restriction on in-home religious gatherings.

Chief Justice John Roberts joined the three liberal justices’ dissent against the ruling, with Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett in the majority.

STUDENT LOANS: One of the radical Left’s stupid plans is to forgive college loans. But I don’t think we should deprive them of the educational opportunity to repay or suffer the consequences.

CLICK [3:08] to see a Why Minute about this subject. It makes some very good points.

In addition, many commenters on the video asked pertinent questions. For example, can those who didn’t go to college get a big chunk of change to use toward advancing their economic and social status? Can those college grads who saved, worked, got scholarships, went to war, and/or took out loans they paid off get lump sums to apply to our mortgages, car loans, etc.? Can those veterans who didn’t use their entire, rightful GI bill education benefits get the balance due as a lump sum?

UK: Early Friday, Prince Philip, the husband of Queen Elizabeth, passed away peacefully at Windsor Castle, the family’s residence in Berkshire, England. He was 99. The queen is 94.

WYOMING: On Monday, Gov. Mark Gordon [R] has signed a bill requiring residents to present photo ID before voting at a polling place or obtaining an absentee ballot. The bill allows as valid proof driver licenses, U.S. passports, tribal identification, university identification, U.S military identification and Medicare or Medicaid insurance cards.

This is the second state I’ve seen do this since Georgia, with no RAAACISM outcry from the loony left. Does anyone know why Georgia is different?

COVID-19 Update


CLICK [19:32] to hear an exceedingly well-qualified physician address the Texas State Senate Health and Human Service Committee last month.

Last year, he made a video presenting peer-reviewed scientific information about successful treatments. It immediately went viral for a week … then YouTube pulled it for violating their “mis-information” standards. Politics has blocked early treatment of the coronavirus. He says this has cost more than 500,000 Americans their lives.

Last year, Dr. McCullough also published “Why home treatment of COVID-19 with several drugs is crucial.” It’s worth looking up and printing.

The Health Impact News site Dr. Mccullough mentions is at

Another place to get help is America’s Frontline Doctors whose video was also canceled. At the link, they have information about getting meds if your local doctor won’t prescribe them.

I searched “early treatment covid-19.” The links I got are below in alphabetical order. They prove Dr. McCullough’s contention that America’s politicians and doctors have failed us badly.

CDC links = ZERO information about keeping caregivers safe. Doctors like McCullough recommend prophylactic treatment.

Health Harvard link = ZERO information about early treatment.

Healthline link = ZERO information about early treatment.

Mayo Clinic link = ZERO information about early treatment.

Medical News Today link = ZERO information about early treatment.

NIH site at “antiviral therapy” page = They recommend AGAINST using HCQ “with or without azithromycin for the treatment of COVID-19, except in a clinical trial” and gives a wimpy “insufficient data for the Panel to recommend either for or against the use of ivermectin for the treatment of COVID-19.” (Most recent update: February 11, 2021)

NIH site at “What’s New” page = On April 8, 2021 .. TWO DAYS AGO … they FINALLY recommended using monoclonal antibodies for early, at-home treatment.

Patient Info link = ZERO information about early treatment.

WebMD link = ZERO information about early treatment.

BASEBALL: CLICK [1:19] to see one game where the fans said, “Phooie!” to woke politics.

BORN ALIVE: Republican Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon has signed the Born Alive Act into law, legislation that requires doctors to care for babies born alive in botched abortions.

CATHOLIC: CLICK [14:47] to hear John-Henry Newman talk about a scandalous painting that Pope Francis keeps in a place of honor (behind his desk in his personal study) depicting a nude Jesus ministering to Judas, who Pope Francis apparently believes is in Heaven.

John-Henry talks about the pontiff’s contradicting the Church’s long-time testimony that Judas is in Hell, but he gives little attention to the nudity of Our Lord in the painting.

It is commonly believed that Jesus was stripped naked by the Romans to add humiliation and shame to his other punishments. I can believe He endured the humiliation of full nudity on the cross, but I find it difficult to impossible to believe that He went around starkers afterwards. And I can’t help wondering why the artist chose to paint Him without so much as a loin cloth and why the pope treasures such an image.

Could it be that Jorge Bergoglio is a guilt-ridden homosexual? Could this account for some of the confusion and criticism he inflicts on the faithful?

EQUITY: It’s the new racism. And it’s not banned. In fact, it’s mandated. CLICK [10:16] to hear Tucker Carlson talk about it.

FIGHTING BACK: Finally! A story about an overly aggressive, COVID-Karen flight attendant that has a HAPPY ending! After the flight attendant called security, the people surrounding the family objected to her cruelty until, for reasons that aren’t clear, everyone got kicked off the plane. However, in the end, everyone got put back on the plane EXCEPT the COVID-Karen flight attendant. So yay!

CLICK to see the videos. The father points out that he could’ve gotten the kid on the plane for free if he’d lied about her age. She JUST turned two. But it wouldn’t have been honest. So he did the right thing and then COVID-Karen punished the whole family. Grrr.

The father also says that one of the passengers overheard the flight attendant planning to do this BEFORE the family ever got on the plane! Why does this matter? Because COVID-Karen is Black and the family is not only White, but also Jewish. Blacks are second only to Muslims in America when it comes to anti-Semitism.

FORENSIC PATHOLOGY: [16:59] – When a pedophile or rapist films their crime, British anatomy professor Sue Black can track them down using nothing more than the veins, scars, freckles, moles, and other markings on their hands. These are different on an individual between left and right; they are also different on the same sides in identical twins.

N.b., she talks about specific cases. It’s hard to listen to. The good news is that, when faced with this evidence, 82% of the perps change their plea to guilty, sparing the victims the trauma of a court room appearance. The bad news is not just that it happens at all, but that it happens with staggering and heart-breaking frequency.

INFRASTRUCTURE: DUH-mocrats are trying to pass a $2 Trillion “infrastructure” spending bill that, like “covid” spending bill was mostly about using borrowed money to buy votes. MOST people define “infrastructure” as roads, bridges, building, water systems, power lines, etc. You know, stuff you build once and then use for years. Not Democrats.

Ted Cruz responded to Gillibrand’s tweet: “Abortion is infrastructure. Gun control is infrastructure. Forced unionization is infrastructure. Whatever the Left wants is infrastructure. You know what’s not? Roads & bridges. ONLY 5% OF BIDEN’s ‘INFRASTRUCTURE’ BILL IS ROADS & BRIDGES.

PERSECUTION: In mid-February, 300 mask-less Christians gathered inside Grace Life Church in Edmonton, Alberta, to worship the Lord. A few days later, their pastor, James Coates, turned himself in to Canadian authorities for deliberately violating masking and capacity regulations.

The court denied bail, then stuck him in a maximum security prison to await sentencing. For 35 days, he was kept in his cell for up to 23 hours per day; his wife and kids were not allowed to visit. When he FINALLY got his day in court (complete with hand and ankle cuffs), he was sentenced to a $1,500 fine and one day in jail.

Before he was released, he was instructed not to pastor or preach ever again. Although he still faces another court date in May for a prior offense, he promptly held a Palm Sunday service. Despite the fact that other churches have violated the same health guidelines, their pastors have not been chained up and thrown into prison.

For some reason, the authorities in Alberta have really got it in for this congregation. On April 7, they raided Grace Life Church, then erected fencing all around, and have posted guards to prevent congregants from gathering “unlawfully” to worship God inside their own church.

At his May trial, the Alberta government will be forced to justify their decision to restrict worship. While governments in Canada may restrict freedoms, they must demonstrably justify these restrictions on the basis of evidence. Methinks the evidence doesn’t exist and that the whole thing is a Leftist attack on Christianity.

“PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS”: Now that they’ve got us all conditioned to do whatever we’re told for however long they decide, there is a NEW “public health crisis” that will REQUIRE us to disarm Americans. So said FAUXTUS on April 8.

He also said that anyone who says the latest round of “reasonable” gun control legislation he’s proposing is in NO WAY, SHAPE OR FORM an impingement on the Second Amendment.

So shut up.

RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS: Last month, Michelle Lowe took her godson and his friend to get their high school senior photos taken. The problem was … none of them knew how to tie a tie.

Officer Adam Price said he was patrolling the area when he saw Lowe waving. He said he was relieved he wasn’t needed for something worse and that doing little things, positive things in the community is the best part of his job.

VAX: On Tuesday, FAUXTUS called on Americans to get vaccinated against the coronavirus, saying that Pope Francis has called vaccination a “moral obligation.” The pontiff said this during his January television interview, but in typical Pope Francis style, his spoken opinion doesn’t match the Church’s official statement, which was published with his approval.

In December, the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) stated that vaccination against COVID-19 is not a moral obligation and “must be voluntary.” The CDF also said that those who do not receive a COVID-19 vaccine must take the appropriate actions to ensure they would not spread the virus and pose a risk to vulnerable people.

In January, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) cited the CDF’s position in its “answers to key ethical questions about COVID-19 vaccines.”

Dr. Michael Yeadon was Pfizer’s Vice President and Chief Scientist for Allergy & Respiratory; he spent 32 years in the industry leading new medicines research and retired from the pharmaceutical giant with “the most senior research position” in his field. Go to the LifeSiteNews link below to read what he has to say about the “demonstrably false” propaganda from governments in response to COVID-19.

VOTER INTEGRITY: You’d think that the people charged with ensuring free and fair elections would want to keep the voter rolls up-to-date and accurate. You’d be wrong. An election-integrity watchdog group had to drag the State of Pennsylvania into court before they would agree to remove dead people from election rolls. There were about 21,000 deceased individuals registered to vote in last November’s election.

GRAMMY NOTES: Mama and Papa Buzz are into Warhammer. They were doing it on the computer, but thought it would be a more fun couple activity if they went to table top. So they bought a whole bunch of models and are having a ball painting and decorating them.

Mama texted me, “I am watching a video with some fun ideas for customizing our bases and [Papa] says to me, totally deadpan, ‘I’m gonna add some skulls, because those are always good. I think there’s a law somewhere that says any model that doesn’t have a skull gets a penalty.’ Then he quirks an eyebrow.” LOL

Uh um uh um” … this woman is painful to listen to. “We have never believed the wall is an answer” … never mind that BORDER PATROL says it’s the BEST answer. BTW, Jen, a key feature of a “functioning” immigration system is to ENFORCE THE LAWS THAT EXIST.

CAPITOL ATTACK: No, not the January 6th one the Dems used to excuse militarizing Washington, D.C. I’m talking about the one that just happened last Friday that resulted in the death of a D.C. cop and the perp, Noah Green (25).

The reason we won’t be hearing about this one endlessly is that Green was a supporter of the anti-white, anti-semitic, black nationalist organization, Nation of Islam, and its leader Louis Farrakhan.

Social media giants removed Green’s Facebook, but not before users saved several of his recent posts, including ones in which he said Farrakhan, not Jesus, is the Messiah and posted a video of a Farrakhan speech titled “The Divine Destruction of America.”

Green was not previously known to law enforcement and the incident does not appear to have been terrorism-related.

COVID-19: On April 5, Fauci said that the federal government won’t mandate the usage of so-called vaccine passports for travel and businesses, after White House officials said the Biden administration is working with private firms to potentially advise on such a system.

Texas Gov. Abbott has signed an executive order barring state agencies or entities that receive public funds from requiring vaccine passports in order to receive goods or services, or to enter a building.

Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC), told Fox News, “Proposals like these smack of 1940s Nazi Germany. We must make every effort to keep America from becoming a ‘show your papers society. The Constitution and our founding principles decry this type of totalitarianism.

In 2018, she called Ivanka Trump a “feckless c**t” and begged her to seduce her father to get him to change his policies.

She’s right about one thing. She really doesn’t make jokes.

HELP ME HATE: A devotional sold at Target includes a prayer by a theology professor, asking God (at length) for the graces she needs to hate white people more than she already does.

Dear God,

Please help me to hate white people. Or at least to want to hate them. At least, I want to stop caring about them, individually and collectively. I want to stop caring about their misguided, racist souls, to stop believing that they can be better, that they can stop being racist.

Lord, if it be your will, harden my heart. Stop me from striving to see the best in people. Stop me from being hopeful that White people can do and be better. Let me imagine them instead as white-hooded robes standing in front of burning crosses.”

It goes on. For FOUR PAGES.

KIDS IN CAGES: FAUXTUS is holding nearly seven times as many unaccompanied minors as Trump did. HHS has more than 8,500. Border Patrol has nearly 3,500.

2d and 14th AMENDMENTS: Gun control enthusiasts would like us to believe that the Second Amendment was adopted to prevent the federal government from disarming state militias.

But the 14th Amendment, adopted on July 9, 1868 during the post-Civil War Reconstruction period, constrained the states from depriving any individual or group of individuals of their civil rights without due process.

In other words, the 14th Amendment makes it clear that the 2d Amendment prevents both state and federal governments from disarming individuals.

One impetus behind the 14th Amendment was to forestall efforts by Southern Democrats to deprive newly freed slaves of their right to bear arms. Democratic President Johnson opposed it to no avail; Congressional elections in late 1866 had given Republicans veto-proof majorities in both the House and Senate.

In 2020, Americans bought a record number of firearms. Blacks were the top demographic among the millions of first-time buyers; their overall gun ownership went up 58.2%.

BORDER: Thank you, Uncle Joe, for making us all safe from Donald Trump’s mean tweets.

I had something similar happen once. I was running errands with 4 kids in the car when I paused under the traffic light on a 4-lane street to wait for a chance to turn left. Right there, with cars whizzing past on both sides, I felt and heard my clutch cable snap. As fast as I could, I got the kids out of their car seats and lined up, with their backs to a brick building on the corner.

I shouted at them, “Do Not Move!” then turned and … it still makes me weepy to remember this. At least six people had stopped in the crossing to block traffic and jumped out of their cars to push mine into an empty parking spot that was miraculously free right on the corner my car was lined up on!

I was able to get our belongings out of the car, feed the meter, retrieve my terrified and very obedient flock of little ones, and walk us all to a phone.

Thank God for good people!

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM: When Trump was in office, he created a Commission on Unalienable Rights to advocate for religious freedom across the world. Last week, FAUXTUS’ Secretary of State deep-sixed it.

COVID-19: Nineteen states have either revoked or never imposed mask mandates and the governors in Wyoming, Mississippi, Texas, Alaska, and Montana have all announced this week that won’t renew them. Three weeks after Gov. Greg Abbott lifted the mask mandate in Texas, the state hit a record low for COVID-19 cases.

HEAVEN, HELL, PURGATORY: Father Jose’s testimony of what happened after he died starts at 24:48. If you prefer text or can’t understand his accent, click the link below. N.b., the text version is not a transcript of the audio.

EXCERPT from HELL: “I was surprised when I saw in hell even priests and Bishops, some of whom I never expected to see. Many of them were there because they had misled the people with false teaching and bad example.

EXCERPT from PURGATORY: “Even though these souls are suffering, they enjoy peace and the knowledge that one day they will see God face to face. I had a chance to communicate with the souls in purgatory. They asked me to pray for them and to tell the people to pray for them as well, so they can go to heaven quickly.”

EXCERPT from HEAVEN: “Words can not express the beauty of heaven.. There we find so much peace and happiness, which exceed a million times our imagination. Our Lord is far more beautiful than any image can convey. His face is radiant and luminous and more beautiful than a thousand rising suns.”

EXCERPT from AFTER: “As they were moving my dead body to the morgue, my soul came back to the body. I felt an excruciating pain because of so many wounds and broken bones. I began to scream, and then the people became frightened and ran away screaming. … The doctor came to examine the body and found that I was alive.”

HERESY: This man is only a “reverend” in the Church of the Left.

HOLLYWOOD HATE: They did the same thing about hydroxychloroquine, with just the same lack of facts.

HOMESCHOOLING: Before COVID-19 shut down the country, 3.3% of American families were homeschooling. That number is now 11.1%.

MEDIA MALPRACTICE: On Thursday’s CBS Evening News, anchor Norah O’Donnell and White House correspondent Nancy Cordes refused fact-check or pushback on President Joe Biden’s insistence that Georgia’s new election law is “Jim Crow on steroids.”

Georgia’s voter ID law has nothing to do with race. When Biden called them “Jim Crow on steroids”, he was making the offensively racist statement that people of color are way too stupid to get photo identification cards.

Jim Crow laws were 19th and early 20th century state and local laws passed by White Democrats (the same guys inside those white KKK hood) that imposed racial segregation on the Southern United States.

PAGANISM: It’s common for skeptics of Christianity to claim that the word Easter comes from the name of a pagan deity called Ishtar, suggesting that the Christian faith has pagan roots. But no matter how prevalent this contention has become, it has no basis in history or reality.

RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS: In other “random” news, when a homeless man walked into Burger King with only 50 cents to buy something to eat, a kind cashier decided to treat the man to a large meal. Then, a patron who had watched the exchanged tipped the cashier $100.

VOTER ID: According to an Associated Press poll, 72% of Americans support showing a photo identification in order to vote — including a majority (56%) of Democrats. As of 2021, 36 states require photo identification to cast a ballot at a polling site.

GRAMMY NOTES: [2:57] – Mama Buzz has been to this aquarium twice. 🙂

CLICK [2:47]. You’ll be glad you did.

Bits & Bytes

ALL THEY WANT: Also, bankrupting America so they can help usher in the New World Order.

ANTIFA: CLICK [3:53] to hear Andy Ngo talk about the riots promised if Chauvin isn’t convicted and locked up for life. The riots haven’t abated and they don’t care about justice. ACAB (in the photo above) stands for “All Cops Are Bastards.”

COMMIE CHURCHES: “Tortured for Christ” trailer [1:35] is about Pastor Richard Wurmbrand’s experiences in a Russian re-education camp. The full movie is available at several places on-line for free. You can google if you want to watch it. I couldn’t even get through the trailer.

According to Radio Free Asia, the atheistic Chinese Communist Party does the same thing. Christians who have escaped report the government arrests believers and holds them in “transformation” camps, where they are tortured until they renounce Jesus.

COMMIE ZOOS: Visitors to a zoo in southwestern China were left shocked and confused when they saw a golden retriever in the African lion enclosure.

Apparently, this habit of substituting dogs for other animals has happened at other Chinese zoos. Two others substituted dogs for wolves, and when asked, one of the zoos said the wolf was just hiding but dog was better anyway because it was “more active.”

I have zero trouble imagining this, since I saw it myself when I visited Budapest, Hungary, in the summer of 1965. We visited the zoo there. My worst memory of the place was seeing a filthy dog laying listlessly on its side in a tiny cage, not much bigger than an airline crate.

IOWA: On April 2, Gov. Kim Reynolds signed a law that, beginning on July 1, will eliminate the requirement for law-abiding Iowans to obtain a permit to purchase a handgun from private, non-licensed sources. Additionally, people will no longer need a permit in order to carry a weapon.

MEDIA MALPRACTICE: On March 26, 2021, on MSNBC’s The ReidOut, political analyst Michael Eric Dyson said, “[Republicans] would pass a law to keep Jesus from be — getting a cup of water while he’s dying on the cross.”

Host Joy Reid replied, “Yeah, that is sad but true.”

Aren’t you glad we don’t have Donald Trump sending out mean tweets any more?

MLB: Former President Donald Trump is urging baseball fans to boycott Major League Baseball over its decision to pull this year’s All-Star Game and 2021 Draft out of Georgia over its recently passed election law.

Shortly before announcing the Georgia boycot, Major League Baseball extended and expanded its contract with a Chinese Communist telecommunications giant.

Most ballparks are now allowed to open at 20% capacity. Meanwhile, in Donna, Texas, facilities holding detained illegals are at 1700% capacity.

OUT, NAZI: Embedded at link [2:20] – Six Canadian police officers showed up at an evangelical church during a Passover service, because the church had been reported as being in violation of COVID-19 regulations. Pastor Artur Pawlowski literally drove them out, shouting “Out of this property, you Nazis. Gestapo is not allowed here.”

RANDOM ACTS: The unusual request alerted Gale that something was seriously off. So he removed his Uber and Lyft stickers and took off his wedding ring before responding to the call. By acting like a boyfriend who was expected, this total stranger was able to rescue a very frightened woman from the aggressive advances of a man trying to get her to go in his car with him.

READ WOKE: Cicely Lewis, the 2020 Librarian of the Year, has come out with a new series of books she recommends for all school libraries. They all push the Progressive Left’s Globalist agendas tailored to shape young minds to eagerly swallow all of Satan’s lies.

The lefting of libraries is not new. In recent years, we’ve seen them pushing Drag Queen Story Hours. And as far back as the Dubya administration, the library associations were so anti-Republican that they totally ignored FLOTUS Laura Bush who had been an actual library and had made literacy her special first lady project.

TRANS: CNN published a news story that said, “It’s not possible to know a person’s gender identity at birth, and there is no consensus criteria for assigning sex at birth.” The article also stated that “biological sex” is a “disputed term that refers to the sex as listed on students’ original birth certificates.”

CLICK [12:02] to hear Matt Walsh talk about the Left’s gender theory religion. Parents of minor trans kids do not see their kids as unique human beings, but as political statements and fashion accessories.

VACCINE: My doctor said, “You realize that you’re taking a greater risk of getting flu and that at your age flu is a bigger deal?

I said, “Yes and yes. But I also know that my past experiences with vaccines have been very bad and that getting the shot is 100% guaranteed to expose me to the vaccine, while taking my chances has so far resulted in me never catching flu.”

YOUTUBE: Some guy has been tracking the activity on the official White House channel. According to his records, YouTube has deleted about 2.5 million ‘dislikes’ from the approximately 300 videos posted so far. YouTube has not removed any “likes.”

Meanwhile, YouTube recently announced that it’s testing a new page design that hides the dislike count. Kinda reminds me of when Little Rocketman’s vicious dictator daddy died and the people were forced to appear in public for his funeral, weeping and wailing for the cameras.

GRAMMY NOTES: I’m really excited about my latest Grammy project. My girls all love to cook with their kids, but they can’t find real oven mitts for small hands and their little ones struggle to use pot holders safely.

So, I bought a sewing pattern for adult oven mitts and figured out how to modify it for small hands and they turned out great! The real-oven-temp insulation is too thick to use on the outsides, so I only used it on the palm where they will be gripping hot pans. For the back of the hand and wrist, I used a layer of flannel which, with the canvas outside and quilting cotton inside, I think should be enough to avoid burns from brief brushes with hot things.

Then, bonus, I realized the canvas I had gotten for the mitts would be awesome for aprons. I’ve made all my grands aprons, but I have always used quilting cotton. Using canvas for the body of the apron with quilting cotton for the binding-ties works so much better! I already have rave reviews from the first mama who got these red ones. Blue and green apron and mitt sets are coming soon, all chosen to match their kitchen decor. 🙂
