ABORTION: SCOTUS is likely to overturn Roe v. Wade, which I assume means also ditching the companion Doe. “People are realizing that seven months from now, we’ll probably be dealing with this on a state level. This will become much more prominent in state electoral races, especially governor’s races.” – Brian Burch, president of CatholicVote
BYE BYE: In other news, Saule Omarova has withdrawn her name for the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. Yay!
CANADA: The Canadian province of New Brunswick now allows grocery stores to bar the unvaccinated as part of their so-called COVID “winter plan.” There’s no science or sense behind this draconian measure. Even during the pre-vaxxx pandemic lockdowns, everyone was allowed to go to grocery stores!
COVID-19: Two studies show that melatonin lowers the incidence of severe symptoms. Front Line physicians recommend 6 mg before bed prior to infection boosted to 10 mg if you catch the bug. Ours arrived today.
EFFING BEE: I had a “fact” check slapped on my FB post of the LifeSite article about the Pfizer docs, along with the usual warning about dire consequences for those who persist in publishing false information and no way to dispute or remove the stupid “fact” check. Golly, Miss Molly! Whatever would we do without the “International Fact-Checking Network” keeping us all soooo well informed?
LATINX: “When Latino politicos use the term it is largely to appease white rich progressives. To be clear my office is not allowed to use ‘Latinx’ in official communications.” – Rep. Ruben Gallego, D-AZ.
I want to pronounce it “lat eenx”, but apparently it’s supposed to be pronounced “latin ex.“
LOUDOUN COUNTY: The school district that covered up one sexual assault while facilitating another by the same kid is now demanding $36,000 to respond to a FOIA request for “all communications, including press releases, statements, emails, or other correspondence in any format” in the possession of Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) containing the words “sexual assault” or “rape” from May 1 to Oct. 18, 2021.
NEW YUCK CITY: DeBlasio says that, as of December 27, all private sector employees, including employees of private religious schools, will be required to get vaxxxed. “We’re gonna have some other measures as well, to really focus on maximizing vaccination quickly, so we can get ahead of Omicron and all the other challenges we’re facing right now with COVID.” Not sure where he gets the authority to impose such an invasive rule on anybody and I hope he gets his pants sued off.
NUNES: Congressman Devin Nunes is leaving Congress for the CEO position of former President Donald Trump’s upcoming anti-Big Tech media company.
SCOTUS: On Dec 1, when the Biden team proposed that Roe v. Wade is somehow sacrosanct, Justice Alito asked, “Is it your argument that a case can never be overruled simply because it was egregiously wrong?”
The Biden lawyer responded that the Court could only reverse a long-standing precedent if a state “[came] forward with some kind of materially changed circumstance or some kind of materially new argument.”
Alito quered, “Really? So, suppose Plessy v. Ferguson was re-argued in 1897, so nothing had changed. Would it not be sufficient to say that was an egregiously wrong decision on the day it was handed down and now it should be overruled?”
Biden’s lawyer agreed that Plessy v. Ferguson had been egregiously wrong from the get go and should have been overruled as soon as possible.
Plessy v. Ferguson was the racist 1896 “separate but equal” case that was reversed in 1954 by Brown v. Board of Education.
TOLERANCE: Another woman posted a fiery condemnation of the unvaxxxed on her now-deleted Facebook page in which she shrieked that all of the unvaxxed should be taken out back and shot. She claims to be a teacher who sits on the NEA Board of Directors.
GRAMMY NOTES: The Buzzers are on schedule. Fortunately, they had a little time to spare, since they needed a snow day in Montana. Mama says the scenery has been incredibly beautiful. While we were chatting last night, one of the kids piped up from the back seat, “I want to stand on my feet.” Mama replied, “We all do, sweetie. We’re 30 minutes from the hotel, then we can find a playground.“
