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

2A: Gov. Doug Ducey signed legislation on April 6 that would prohibit Arizona’s law officers from enforcing any federal gun laws that may violate the Constitution’s Second Amendment.

BORDER: CLICK [3:56] to listen to the official White House Liar try to explain how it’s totally consistent that FAUXTUS’ declaration of “I won’t build one more foot of wall” has morphed into “Fill in gaps in the wall.

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.

COME, LORD JESUS: CLICK [18:48] to hear how far we have fallen. Full disclosure … I got one minute in and had to turn it off.

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.

DUH-MOCRATS: Stupid is as stupid does.

EATING THEIR OWN: America’s first woke president is getting a taste of his own medicine as activists in Illinois have categorized him alongside “oppressors” like Thomas Jefferson.

EUGENICS: CLICK [3:10] to hear how Bill Clinton directed the FDA to import the abortion pill into the United States after receiving a letter from a Roe v. Wade attorney encouraging him to use it to “eliminate the barely educated, unhealthy, and the poor.”

FECKLESS: Feckless comedian says she doesn’t mock FAUXTUS, because “I don’t make jokes for the sake of making jokes.

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.

Under Trump, the highest number of detained, unaccompanied minors was about 2,600.

NAZIS: The SAME PEOPLE calling Georgia’s voter ID law racist are advocating for mandatory vaccine passports.

REPLAY: CLICK [1:43] to hear a hilarious sports replay commentary of a store security video.

TRANS: [1:29] – Arkansas state lawmakers voted to override the governor’s veto of a ban on gender reassignment surgeries and hormone treatments for children under the age of 18. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) says it will file a lawsuit to prevent the new law from being enforced.

UTAH: A new law in Utah will require fathers to pay for half of the mother’s cost of pregnancy, making Utah the first state to mandate prenatal child support from the father.

WOKE SPORTS: A new poll shows that about 11% of Americans who watch sports on television say they now watch more as a result of political and social messaging. However, 34.5% cite these as reasons why they are watching less.

The decline in sports viewership was especially pronounced among Republicans, of whom 53% now watch less.

WORD OF THE DAY: PARKOUR [pär-koo͞r′] n. A sport or athletic activity in which the participant seeks to move quickly and fluidly through an area, often an urban locale, by surmounting obstacles such as walls and railings and leaping across open spaces, as in a stairwell or between buildings.

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.

Just hours after U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced the border arrests of two Yemeni men on the FBI’s Terrorist Watch List, President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security removed the press release.

MORMONS: During their recent annual conference in Salt Lake City, the elders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints renewed their opposition to abortion. Elder Neil Andersen urged Christians to offer “love, encouragement and, when needed, financial help” to mothers experiencing unplanned pregnancies.

PHOTO OP PRESIDENCY: CLICK [:24] to see FAUXTUS and FLAUXTUS on Easter. They’re on an outdoor balcony … in the sun … waving to an empty garden … and they’re wearing masks.

RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS: The guy who took the photo above says he was at an intersection in New Minas, Nova Scotia, when he saw a car pull over and a man from inside jump out, get a snow shovel out of his trunk, and run over to clear the sidewalk for the fellow on the mobility scooter.

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.

During the press conference where he announced it, SecState Blinken criticized the Trump administration for prioritizing some rights, such as religious freedom, more heavily than others.

Then, he announced plans to make abortion a priority for his State Department.

ROE v. WADE: [2:10] – On Good Friday, the long-awaited “Roe v. Wade” film was released on online streaming sites. The film tells the true story behind the infamous U.S. Supreme Court case that legalized abortion on demand at any time and for basically any reason throughout the fifty states.

Over the weekend, some prominent entertainment news sites slammed the film, claiming it distorts history, but they didn’t mention, much less refute a single alleged inaccuracy. An extensive independent fact check of the film found it depicted the events as they happened.

SNL: Saturday Night Live‘s April 3 show painted a perfect portrait of today’s cultural landscape.

VAX: On Tuesday, a senior official for the European Medicines Agency (EMA) said, “In my opinion, we can now say it, it is clear that there is an association (of the brain blood clots) with the vaccine. However, we still do not know what causes this reaction.

The real cat caught sight of it and jumped backwards, then stalked all around the edges of the living room, never taking its eyes off the statue. When the statue didn’t move at all, the cat got braver and finally approached, sniffed it, then did the “I never thought that stupid cat was real” pose. LOL

AOC: This wise Latina has taught us all so many important life lessons.

CORPORATOCRACY: Tucker Carlson [15:15] – Corporations now believe they have veto power over our democracy.

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.

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.

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.”

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. 🙂

God has died in the flesh and Hell trembles with fear

On Holy Saturday, Christians remember that while his dead body was laying in a tomb, Jesus’ soul “descended into the dead,” as the Apostle’s Creed says. It’s traditionally known as the “harrowing of hell,” when Jesus announced salvation to all the righteous who had died before his coming. Below is a video [5:31] of an ancient homily on this important event of salvation history.

Something strange is happening – there is a great silence on earth today, a great silence and stillness. The whole earth keeps silence because the King is asleep. The earth trembled and is still because God has fallen asleep in the flesh and he has raised up all who have slept ever since the world began. God has died in the flesh and hell trembles with fear.

He has gone to search for our first parent, as for a lost sheep. Greatly desiring to visit those who live in darkness and in the shadow of death, he has gone to free from sorrow the captives Adam and Eve, he who is both God and the son of Eve. The Lord approached them bearing the cross, the weapon that had won him the victory. At the sight of him, Adam, the first man he had created, struck his breast in terror and cried out to everyone: “My Lord be with you all.” Christ answered him: “And with your spirit.” He took him by the hand and raised him up, saying:

“Awake, O sleeper, and rise from the dead, and Christ will give you light.

“I am your God, who for your sake have become your son. Out of love for you and for your descendants I now by my own authority command all who are held in bondage to come forth, all who are in darkness to be enlightened, all who are sleeping to arise.

“I order you, O sleeper, to awake. I did not create you to be held a prisoner in hell. Rise from the dead, for I am the life of the dead. Rise up, work of my hands, you who were created in my image. Rise, let us leave this place, for you are in me and I am in you; together we form only one person and we cannot be separated. For your sake I, your God, became your son; I, the Lord, took the form of a slave; I, whose home is above the heavens, descended to the earth and beneath the earth.

“For your sake, for the sake of man, I became like a man without help, free among the dead. For the sake of you, who left a garden, I was betrayed to the Jews in a garden, and I was crucified in a garden.

“See on my face the spittle I received in order to restore to you the life I once breathed into you. See there the marks of the blows I received in order to refashion your warped nature in my image. On my back see the marks of the scourging I endured to remove the burden of sin that weighs upon your back. See my hands, nailed firmly to a tree, for you who once wickedly stretched out your hand to a tree.

“I slept on the cross and a sword pierced my side for you who slept in paradise and brought forth Eve from your side. My side has healed the pain in yours. My sleep will rouse you from your sleep in hell. The sword that pierced me has sheathed the sword that was turned against you.

“Rise, let us leave this place. The enemy led you out of the earthly paradise. I will not restore you to that paradise, but I will enthrone you in heaven. I forbade you the tree that was only a symbol of life, but see, I who am life itself am now one with you. I appointed cherubim to guard you as slaves are guarded, but now I make them worship you as God.

“The throne formed by cherubim awaits you, its bearers swift and eager. The bridal chamber is adorned, the banquet is ready, the eternal dwelling places are prepared, the treasure houses of all good things lie open. The kingdom of heaven has been prepared for you from all eternity.”

BORDER: CLICK [:41] to see all kinds of precious mamas and wee babes politely applying for economic asylum in the most RAAACIST nation on Earth. ALSO: Click the links to read about what benefits illegals are and are not eligible to receive.

DR JILL:Say it with me: SEE SAY PWODWAY! The future is ours!” [:07] – I don’t speak Spanish, so I sent this to Mama Buzz, who does, and asked what that phrase was supposed to sound like. She wrote back, “I have no idea what she is trying to say! I would need either context or more likely correct spelling to tell you.” LOL

At Not the Bee, I learned it was supposed to be “si se puede” which is pronounced “see she pweh-deh.” And it means “yes, [we or you] can.” It was Cesar Chavez’ motto. The Nazi-ish flag in the background belongs to Chavez’ National Farm Workers Association.

HUNTER BIDEN: CLICK [:028] to hear Hunter Biden’s many theories on whose laptop it may have been. Methinks he missed one … “It could be that I dropped it off, then didn’t bother to pick it up, like the computer guy says and for which he has documentation that I signed.”

The publicly-funded National Public Radio (NPR) printed a bald-faced lie in its review of Hunter Biden’s new memoir, Beautiful Things. About 12 paragraphs down, it says, “The last gasp of [Rudy Giuliani’s] campaign against the Bidens featured a laptop supposedly obtained from sources that would document the younger Biden’s drug use and other offenses. The laptop story was discredited by U.S. intelligence and independent investigations by news organizations.” (Emphasis added.)

The FBI and the New York Post both investigated the laptop BEFORE the slobbering lapdog media got on to the story and confirmed it was definitely Hunter Biden’s.

NOT OKAY: A video designed for sexually and/or physically abused children who are in therapy was shown to a second grade class during a “lesson on social and emotional learning.” I. Can’t. Even.

PHOTO OP ADMINISTRATION: FAUXTUS’ Secretary of Transportation Pete Bootyjudge rides part of the way to work in an SUV with his Secret Service detail. Then, he gets out of the gas hog while some poor schlub unloads his bicycle so he can pretend he bikes to work to SAVE THE PLANET. CLICK [1:09] to see the video.

UPDATE: This is reportedly not what happened.

RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS: A woman posted on Facebook that a man in First Class insisted trading his seat with a military member who was booked into seat 31B in Coach. The woman wrote the fellow the note (above), which he thanked her for, but declined.

RESET THE ECONOMY: CLICK [:38] to hear a crystal clear admission that COVID regulation goals are NOT about public health. They are about control (and making money for Big Pharma). How DARE we the deplorable sheeple think we can go out and enjoy our freedoms without PERMISSION!

TRUMP: CLICK [18:00] to hear the interview that has been banned by Facebook and Instagram.

UNDER THE BRIDGE: CLICK [1:09] to see a new video leaked to Project Veritas, showing inhumane conditions Border Patrol has been forced to employ to deal with the massive surge brought on by FAUXTUS’ executive orders. They were warned this would happen if FAUXTUS overturned Trump’s border control orders; he did it anyway.

CLICK [1:42] to see an astonishing routine on the balance beam.

Bits & Bytes

CATHOLIC: CLICK [11:53] to hear John-Henry Westen talk about another leftist priest who crossed the line on behalf of the Global Elite.

Meanwhile, in Italy, a priest refused to bless the palms last Sunday, because he objects to the Vatican telling him he shouldn’t bless same-sex unions. His diocese said it was “reprehensible” to alter the liturgy for purposes of personal protest, particularly when said protest is directed against a declaration by the CDF published with the consent of the pope.

DELTA: It’s idiotic stuff like this that makes me think the cabal behind the coming New World Order sends out thugs to explain to CEOs that, if they support the Left’s agenda, they will enjoy the privileges of the elite after America falls. And that if they do not, the Left will destroy them.

FAIRNESS IN MEDIA: While accepting the Edward R. Murrow Lifetime Achievement Award, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt dismissed objective reporting and and declared that “fairness is overrated.” He said he sees no reason to “always give two sides equal weight and merit,” where he deems that one of those sides has the correct position.

Brit Hume (Fox) responded, “This argument rests on the proposition that the media always know the truth. But they don’t, as his own network’s coverage of the bogus — and implausible — Russia collusion tale illustrates. Not to mention the media’s reporting of early Covid 19 advice that turned out wrong.

Obviously if one side says the White House is made of powdered milk, and the other disagrees, we can safely ignore the milk claim. But political disputes are rarely so cut and dried. So we report what both sides are saying and let viewers and readers make up their own minds.

FOUR PINOCCHIOS: The Washington Post has long been a loyal water carrier for all things Democrat. Yet they recently fact-checked two FALSE claims made by FAUXTUS, one made in his first press conference, then again in a written statement. Methinks the word has gone out that Slow Joe is on his way to forced early retirement.

HATE CRIME: On Monday morning, in Midtown Manhattan, a racist Black man brutally beat an Asian woman who was walking to her church. As he punched and kicked the 65-year-old woman, he yelled, “F–k you, you don’t belong here.”

Video footage of the assault shows the suspect not only kicked the woman as she lay on the sidewalk, but also stomped her in the head several times. The victim suffered a fractured pelvis, but is listed in stable condition.

Several men reportedly watched the incident without trying to either help the woman or apprehend the attacker.

HATE SPEECH: In January, the U.S. Department of Commerce sent a report to Congress concluding that free speech on the internet does lead to an increase in hate crimes. Although reports like this are typically made public, this one has never been released. (An earlier report from 1993 is still available on the web.)

Breitbart has obtained a copy and has posted it at the link below. The Breitbart article says, “Sources who were close to the drafting and approval process suspect that bureaucrats and establishment politicians with a vested interest in the ‘hate crimes’ panic are trying to suppress it, because its conclusions challenge popular media narratives alleging a rise in internet-inspired hate crimes.

One person said, “I suspect the Civil Rights Division might have something to do with it [not being released].” The Civil Rights Division, said the source, is also at the forefront of “efforts to drum up hysteria” over white nationalist extremism in the U.S.

MASKS: Last summer, Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers (D-WI) enacted the first state-wide mask mandate. At the time, he said it would remain in effect until September 2020, but then he unilaterally extended it several more times through new public health orders. On Wednesday, the Wisconsin Supreme Court struck down those orders, which were made without the approval of the legislature.

MEDIA MALPRACTICE: On Tuesday, Joyless Reid, host of MSNBC’s The ReidOut reveled in the R-rated Lil Nas X video and Satan-themed Nike sneakers, calling them signs that Christians have lost the culture war. She posited that people shouldn’t be allowed to speak out against the Chinese communist government, homosexuality or transgenderism, because such speech allegedly encourages violence against Asian Americans and LGBT people.

PORKULUS the SECOND: In their mad rush to destroy the United States of America, Democrats are pushing for yet ANOTHER multi-trillion dollar spending bill. This is in addition to the regular budget and the so-called COVID relief bill.

Only about 25% of FAUXTUS’ $2.5 trillion proposal infrastructure bill is targeted to infrastructure. Like PORKULUS the FIRST, the majority is for pork and b.s. climate change initiatives.

RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS: When Grandma saw her 5-year-old granddaughter dumping out her piggy bank, she asked her what she was planning to do with the money.

She said she was taking it to school for milk,” Grandma said. “I explained that I had already paid for her milk for the month, then she looked at me and said, ‘My friend’s mom doesn’t have milk money, and I do.’”

RUSSIA: Putin is moving on Ukraine. I’m thinking the Ukrainians are missing Trump.

VOTER INTEGRITY: For weeks, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Democratic sore loser candidate Rita Hart (left) had been trying to figure out how to unseat Republican Congresswoman Mariannette Miller-Meeks (right), who rightfully won the election back in 2020.

On Wednesday, Hart finally called it quits with a snotty statement about how “the truth has not prevailed” and how her loss was “a stain on democracy.

The same people who loudly proclaim that FAUXTUS fairly won his place in the White House have declined to report on what Pelosi claimed was her “right” to ignore the will of the voters in the district.

YOUTUBE: On March 22, 2021 the Dove was permanently banned from YouTube. The Dove has over 40 years of providing hope and giving a Biblical perspective to current events. Over 15,000 interviews and segments had been posted to YouTube with millions of views. YouTube deleted it all.

YouTube said the Dove was booted because of repeated violations of the platform’s policies concerning “COVID-19 misinformation and presidential election integrity.” Translation: The Dove offended the Left by expressing opinions and presenting evidence that didn’t line up with the Left’s political agenda.

YouTube has demonetized and suspended Steven Crowder’s channel for “violating our presidential election integrity policy.” Crowder said his real crime was practicing investigative journalism about election integrity.

GRAMMY NOTES: One of my precious offspring sent me this scripture encouragement and welcome reminder – “Healing takes time and so often happens in layers: one memory, one truth at a time. You don’t have to figure things out on your own. Just follow Jesus. He’s such a gentle Shepherd; He knows how to deliver you in a way that won’t destroy you. He knows what lies that you picked up when life let you down. And He’ll move at a pace that you can keep. He’s not in a hurry. You can trust Him. Let your Good Shepherd lead the way. Get out of your head and trust Him with your whole heart. He’s more committed to your wholeness and freedom than you are. So, enjoy the journey. Smell the flowers. Notice the little things. Stay grateful. And stay expectant. God is always up to something new.” – Susie Larson

CLICK [2:03] to see a frustrated Mama Bear try to cross her four cubs to cross the road. The way cub three trots back and forth is SO funny! I feel a little guilty about laughing so hard. I had my share of this kind of thing back when I only had two kids! LOL

Holy Thursday

ABORTION: The Texas legislature is working on passing seven pro-life bills and twenty-three Texas cities have declared themselves “abortion sanctuary cities.”

CATHOLIC: U.S. Cardinal Raymond Burke is one of the world’s foremost canon lawyers; he was formerly the prefect of the Church’s highest court.

During an interview this week, Thomas McKenna of Catholic Action for Faith and Family, referred to President Biden’s continuing to claim he is a devout Catholic, while signing executive orders that directly promote abortion and asked, “What can be done now? What is the next step?

Cardinal Burke said, “Such a person who claims to be a Catholic and yet promotes in such an open, obdurate, and aggressive way a crime like procured abortion is in the state, at least, of apostasy. In other words, to do this is to draw away from Christ and to draw away from the Catholic faith. And so the second action, which needs to be considered, is a canonical penalty, a sanction, for the crime of apostasy, which would be excommunication.”

COVID-19: On March 29, FAUXTUS told states and cities to institute mask mandates.

Texas Governor Abbot (R) removed all restrictions, including the statewide mask mandate, two weeks before. The number of positive COVID-19 tests have continued to decline.

Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy (R) told FAUXTUS to keep his mask mandate. “We’ll keep doing it the Alaska way; trust the people and let them live their lives.”

CRITICAL RACE THEORY: [1:46] – Loudoun County public schools are teaching Critical Race Theory. Here is an example. The student sees two people hanging out with each other; the teacher pushes him to see racial differences and articulate some underlying racial tension. When the student refuses to do so, the teacher gets frustrated. “I don’t see why you do this.” The student has the perfect response. “At the end of the day, wouldn’t that just be feeding into the problem of looking at race instead of acknowledging them as two normal people?

FAUXTUS: CLICK [1:09] to see Slow Joe climb the steps to AF1 very, very carefully. Yet he still manages to trip on one step.

HATE IS THE NEW VIRTUE: The FAUXTUS administration has included pro-lifers on a list of “domestic violent extremists” (DVEs) in a new report from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

The report allowed as how “mere advocacy of political or social positions, political activism” and “use of strong rhetoric may not constitute violent extremism, and may be constitutionally protected.” Yeah, that’ll work … unless the Left manages to go further with its attempts to define “speech we disagree with” as violence.

The California state legislature is working to pass the California Law Enforcement Accountability Reform Act (Assembly Bill 655), which allegedly aims to require law enforcement agencies to screen officers and potential hires for “hate.”

But, in the spirit of the tweet above and FAUXTUS’ definition of domestic violence, the bill defined “hate speech” in a way that would have banned many religious people, pro-lifers and conservatives from the force. Fortunately, alert Californians pushed back hard and got the bill amended.

MAJOR BIDEN: On Monday, FAUXTUS’ German Shepherd bit a National Park Service employee while being walked on the South Lawn. On March 8, he bit a Secret Service employee.

The law in Washington, D.C., defines a “potentially dangerous dog” as a dog that “without provocation, chases or menaces a person or domestic animal in an aggressive manner, causing an injury to a person or domestic animal that is less severe than a serious injury.”

Dangerous dogs can be put down by the city under certain circumstances … one of which is that the dog belongs to the president.

In other news, the Associated Press reported that one of the two First Pooches did a doody in a hallway of the White House, but neglected to identify if the culprit was Major or Champ. My favorite tweet comment: “Our media have finally found their sweet spot.

MARK OF THE BEAST: It’s becoming more and more plausible.

SATAN SHOE: Matt Walsh reviews the music video behind the shoe. In short, “it sucks.” I don’t recommend you watch the clips of the video within the review. Just one “fork in the eye” image was of the male singer giving Satan a lap dance. This “artist” has carefully recruited a fan following of elementary aged children. IOW, “he’s a disgusting, dirt bag predator.” [7:36]

CLICK [:59] to hear Officer Tatum give his opinion about the video that inspired the shoes.

Nike is suing the makers of Lil Nas X “Satan Shoes” for copyright infringement. And well they should. The company got a LOT of negative blowback over their alleged participation in making the Satan Shoe.

SUEZ CANAL: The 1,300-foot Ever Given was dislodged on Monday and shipping has resumed. About 15 percent of world shipping traffic transits the Suez Canal.

A former Boatswain’s Mate commented on the cartoon, “Ain’t no pickup truck moving no ship. Do you know how many thousands of tons that is? The tugs that pull them into port have engines in them that are bigger than that pickup truck and they need three or four of them to pull a ship into port. You’d try to pull it with the four wheel drive truck and the lines would stretch, pop, and snap and the lines would snap back and tear through the truck. I have seen lines snap before, it put a dent in the side of the ship as big as your body in close to 12″ of steel. Even chain would have to be in links as big as the truck. Each one of the anchors are made up of more steel than is in six pickup trucks and you need two of them to hold a ship in place. Whatever you see of a ship above water, there is almost twice as much ship underwater.

It was way funnier before I knew all that. Especially the snapping chains part! Yoiks! However, on further consideration, I think that, if we assume that drawing is meant to be to scale, those trucks should be plenty big enough to free that 1,400 foot stuck ship! LOL

TRANS: If Gov. Noem had signed it, HB 1217 would have protected females in high school and college from having to compete against biological males claiming to self-identify as females.

Noem got a lot of blowback when she sent the bill back to the legislature, asking for various “style and form” changes. Those changes were rejected by the legislature for making the bill harder to enforce at the high school level and exempting the collegiate level entirely. It has been speculated that Noem did this following pressure from the NCAA.

In response to the down vote, Noem sent a letter to House leaders confirming that the bill is effectively vetoed, while claiming that the legislature’s refusal to make her recommended changes are what vetoed it, rather than her rejection of the bill.

Despite the veto, HB 1217’s fate is not yet sealed. APP’s director of policy and government affairs Jon Schweppe reports that the state legislature is currently weighing its options, and may be able to override Noem’s veto. Two-thirds of each chamber must vote yes to override a veto in South Dakota; the bill originally passed by more than enough votes in the House but would need an additional four votes in the Senate.

VACCINE PASSPORTS: Florida Gov. de Santis expressed his disapproval of the idea saying, “It’s completely unacceptable for either the government or the private sector to impose upon you the requirement that you show proof of vaccine to just simply be able to participate in normal society.” He promised to take executive action against it.

According to Genesius Times (satire), “You can identify as having a penis or vagina whether you have one or not. This is scientifically proven beyond a reasonable doubt. Stop being a bigot, bigot!

But you CANNOT, I repeat CANNOT identify as having been vaccinated if someone didn’t stick the Fauchi ouchie in your arm!

VOTER ID: Not content with trashing Georgia’s new voting law as racist, the hosts of CBS This Morning are now encouraging business leaders to boycott the state.

GRAMMY NOTES: Dearest left early this morning to spend Easter with the Mascots. They’re just a tad excited to see him. 🙂

CLICK [:50]. You’ll be so glad you did. 🙂
