A HARD EASTER: [2:13] – It’s not about the comfort we might be missing.
DEMOCRAT DYSTOPIA: “On Holy Thursday, an American mayor criminalized the communal celebration of Easter. That sentence is one that this Court never expected to see outside the pages of a dystopian novel, or perhaps the pages of The Onion,” U.S. District Judge Justin Walker wrote on Holy Saturday.
Judge Walker’s emergency ruling rebuked Democrat Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer’s order prohibiting churches from gathering for Easter services, even if congregants remained in their cars.
“We’re saying no church worshiping,” the mayor had declared.
Walker’s emergency ruling allowed Louisville churches to move forward with modified Easter gatherings.
TRUMP: Can you imagine what these numbers would look like if the MSM actually did their jobs?
CNN: [2:54] – “We hear from a lot of people”- Jim Acosta.
Translation: “I asked some guys in the CNN news room if they agreed with me and they said yes.”
PBS: At Friday’s Task Force briefing, U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams talked about the reasons for higher COVID-19 infection and death rates for people of color and urged members of these minorities to avoid engaging in high-risk behaviors such as drinking, smoking, and drug use during the pandemic.
Then he said that, if you can’t do it for yourself, do it for your abuela and your big mama and your pop pop.
PBS’ White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor said, “There are some people online that are already offended by that language and the idea that you’re saying behaviors might be leading to these high death rates.”
Anyway, the Surgeon General’s reply was excellent.
And, for the record, Trump’s Surgeon General and SecHUD are both Black and his SecTrans is Asian.
Best tweets I saw about this incident:
- Alcindor lecturing the Surgeon General of the United States as a member of the P.C. Police is pretty pathetic. And never forget — she works for PBS, so she’s doing this on OUR behalf as taxpayers.
- Spoken by an obese reporter who is in the very risk pool she’s questioning.
- Just imagine how racist it would have been if that black Surgeon General had said, “Eat healthy foods.”
- Yamiche needs to practice mindfulness based eating and put the fork down.
- Worldwide pandemic and she plays a race card.
- The only thing people are offended at is her line of questioning.
- Hispanic here. There is nothing offensive about the U.S. Surgeon General referring to a grandmother as an “abuela.” That is literally the proper Spanish term for the word.
- The more useless people are the more ‘validation’ they need.
SPYGATE UPDATE: On Friday, formerly classified footnotes in Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s watchdog report were declassified.
They show that the FBI knew very early on that the Steele dossier was tainted by anti-Trump sources in Russian.
IOW, it turns out that there were ties between Russian intelligence and a presidential campaign. But it was the Clinton campaign, not the Trump campaign.
The FBI knew it and used the dossier anyway … first to justify multiple FISA surveillance warrants to spy on the Trump campaign and then, later, to push forward the years-long, $30 million Mueller investigation.
CONGRESS: Judicial Watch hand-delivered its ethics complaint to the chairman of the ethics committee, calling for a full investigation into Rep. Ilhan Omar’s marriage to a man who appears to be her biological brother.
UK: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is out of the hospital exactly one week after he was admitted with the coronavirus. On the advice of his medical team, he will not be immediately returning to work.
VIRGINIA: Satan is stoking the flames for his loyal son – Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) announced on Good Friday that he signed into “The Reproductive Health Protection Act” into law.
This evil legislation repeals most restrictions on abortion in Virginia, including 24-hour waiting periods, ultrasounds, and counseling prior to having an abortion.
Northam claimed it “will make women and families safer.”
It allows non-physicians to perform abortions and rolls back building safety standards in abortion clinics. But it’s going to make women “safer.”
CHINA: Buy American! [2:54] – Warning! Don’t watch this while eating. It’s so gross.
ABORTION: [11:49] – Eight police officers showed up at an abortion clinic in Scotsdale, because some guys were standing outside with pro-life signs. The officers ordered them all to leave and threatened them with jail time. In the midst of all of this, God saved twins! Watch it all unfold.
CANADA: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has pledged $159.5 million toward helping underdeveloped countries cope with the pandemic.
“The COVID-19 virus knows no borders,” Gould said in the release. “This has been a wake-up call for the world to stand in solidarity and work together. If there was ever a time for countries and governments to support one another and invest in health globally, it is right now.”
All of this sounds good on the surface. Buried at the bottom of the release is a paragraph admitting that some of the money will be funding abortions.
Well, I guess it is true that dead babies will never, ever get COVID-19, so there’s that.
GRAMMY NOTES: On Saturday, I heard multiple emergency vehicle sirens coming up our street. I rushed to the window, because we live on a small, dead end street. There are only about 25 houses between us and the end of the road, and in the 36 years we’ve lived here, I’ve never heard a siren.
To my delight, it was NOT a neighborhood emergency, but a caravan of emergency vehicles with sirens and lights going. On top of the big, red fire truck were two “furries” (humans in animal costumes) … one was a big white bunny and the other was a dog dressed in a fire fighter gear.
It made my day! I’m guessing it made the days of a lot of people, particularly the bored kids in our village. God bless them!
PHOTO: I FB friend posted a video a friend posted on Facebook. Their fire department did the same thing! (Except they didn’t have a fire dog!) I wonder how widespread this was. Anybody know?
