OBAMAGATE: [8:20] – Senior Obama officials asked to eavesdrop on senior Trump adviser Michael Flynn, then one or more of them leaked the contents to the media. They had no business doing either of those things.
FLYNN: “On May 13, Judge Emmet Sullivan issued a blatantly biased and unconstitutional order in the long-lasting Michael Flynn criminal case. To preserve the rule of law and our constitutional separation of powers, the Department of Justice has no choice now but to seek a writ of mandamus from the D.C. Circuit Court ordering the criminal charge against Flynn dismissed and reassigning the case to another judge.” – Margot Cleveland, May 14, 2020, The Federalist
COVID-19: President Trump promises that as soon as we have a vaccine, he will mobilize the military and other forces to get it out to a lot of people very, very rapidly.
Does anyone else remember lining up to get a Dixie cup of Sabin’s pink polio vaccine drink? I haven’t been able to find anything about it on-line, but it appears to have happened in 1961. I would have been 6 or 7 years old. I was thinking I was younger.
Also, the White House says it plans to redesign the nation’s strategic stockpile of critical supplies to make the country less vulnerable to future catastrophic events. One goal is to build up a 90-day buffer of key supplies and also to source more of the manufacturing from American producers.
NEW YORK: Gag me – This morning, I received an email about Phase 1 reopening from my governor, Andrew “There’s no room in New York for pro-lifers” Cuomo.
In it, he says, “Yesterday, … 132 New Yorkers succumbed to the virus. This is an unfathomable loss.”
Later, he says, “Remember that we take these precautions not only for our own health, but for the health of our family, friends and neighbors. It’s about respect.”
H.R. 6666: Update on my post from yesterday about the Democrats’ proposed TRACE Act –
The LifeSite article I linked to has been removed, I believe because it contained an error about the contents of the bill. I got a notice from Facebook that the article was inaccurate in that it said H.R. 6666 would permit forced quarantines.
This isn’t actually in the federal bill, however it apparently is part of the Ventura County, California, tracking effort and H.R. 6666 DOES include the open door of “for other purposes” which seems to mean that whoever got the money could legally do whatever the hell they wanted.
This kind of vague language is how Obamacare went from being the “Affordable Care Act” (pile of paper on the chair” to being the monstrous pile of regulations enacted by a 15-person, unelected panel of Progressives.
One of these regulations was used as an excuse to drag Christians like Hobby Lobby and The Little Sisters of the Poor through expensive court battles to defend their right to religious liberty.
The Little Sisters are nuns who care for indigent elderly … and they are STILL fighting. They took their first case to the Supreme Court and won. But Progressives HATE chastity, charity, and faith in Jesus Christ … so they’re back in the Supreme Court again!
PRO-LIFE: Alternatives Pregnancy Center, a pro-life medical clinic and resource for women in Sacramento, Calif. created a diaper drive-through to help moms affected by the coronavirus outbreak. Over a two-week period, they provided diapers, wipes, a note, and a Bible verse to over 1,000 people in the Sacramento area.
“So many people said ‘Wow, you’re pro-life? We thought pro-life was something else, thank you so much for diapers. We’re helping to reshape and reform what people think about pregnancy centers. There’s a misconception that we don’t care about women. This opportunity helped us to reshape that narrative.”
“There’s a misconception that we don’t care about women” because the Democrats that dominate the media and Hollywood keep repeating this damnable lie.
GRAMMY NOTES: I finally got so fed up with my hair that I just hacked it off. It’s uneven but at least it isn’t in my eyes or on my neck. But I hadn’t thought about dye jobs. Or what about those fake nails some women get that have to be attended to once a month as the natural nail makes them grow out. I wonder what happens when the gaps aren’t filled in? Nail fungus?
BATFISH: “They all look pissed off.” [5:43] – God was in a really weird mood when he created this creature!
