Are you one of those people who wholeheartedly believe what the mainstream media spews out? If you are I pity you.

Sleepy Joe Biden is not a full-time president.

AAA says Memorial Day gas prices expected to hit highest in 7 years

Where I live gasoline is a dollar more a gallon than it was before Joe Biden was sworn into office. 

Biden on his first day in office cancelled the contstruction of the Keystone XL Pipeline. 

The Democrats are the anti-energy party. And according to AAA, gas prices are the highest they have been in seven years.

Mark Dice: It *does* exist - Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is proof

Nearly a week after Chicago's failed mayor, Lori Lightfoot, chose "celebrate" the second anniversary of her inauguration by granting one-on-one interviews only with black or brown journalists, people are still talking about her racist decision. 

Her mind has been warped by leftist groupthink.

Kamala Harris hand wipe blunder with South Korean leader would've been 'the end of the world' for Trump

Last week Kamala Harris shook the hand of South Korean president Moon Jae-in in a White House ceremony. Immediately afterwards the vice president wiped her hand on her pants.

Not surprisingly the lapdog pro-Democrat media is ignoring this story. 

And if it had been Donald Trump?

Time for a lie-down again, Joe. And it is you who the sun got to.

Alaska teacher suspended after making ‘racially insensitive’ comments during class, including advising against resisting arrest

Blogger in Fairbanks
in 2020
A Fairbanks, Alaska teacher has been suspended with pay after a discussion about race in a recorded classroom lesson about the novel "To Kill a Mockingbird."

Some of her comments were ham-handed, for instance, she said that if George Floyd had listened to the police as they were arrested him he'd be alive today--without condemning the lead Minneapolis police officer in the Floyd case, Derek Chauvin, who has has since been convicted of second and third degree murder. 

But she gave the wise advice that resisting arrest is a bad idea. "Please comply," she warned. "Do not fight the cops, don't try to run away."

Anyway, the teacher, a white woman, is taken to task by a black woman late in the video, who, in not so many words, condmens the educator for speaking out on race because she's not a minority. 

Of course non-whites can speak at will about caucasians.


Thanks for the story tip from a friend of the blog in the Last Frontier.

Never Trumpers angry over Liz Cheney's removal from House GOP leadership

As your mother probably told you a person can be judged by their friends. Because of her opposition to former President Donald Trump, Liz Cheney was ousted from her position as the House Republican Conference Chair, the third-ranking position for the party in the lower chamber. 

Coming to her defense is CNN, which avoided mention of the escalating conflict between Israel and Hamas during its primetime show but devoted 90 minutes last night to Cheney

The Never Trump Lincoln Project, which has many problems of its own, is supporting her. So is Never Trumper Adam Kinzinger.

As is Mitt Romney, who in a Tweet two days ago said, "Expelling Liz Cheney from leadership won’t gain the GOP one additional voter, but it will cost us quite a few."
Meanwhile over 100 Republicans, including many people I've never heard of, say they may form a third party if reforms aren't made within the GOP. One name I recognize is Evan McMullin, who ran for president against Trump under a minor party's banner in 2016. Is McMullin really a Republican? He wasn't five years ago.

Joe Biden laughs as April jobs report shows increased unemployment rate

Squinty Joe Biden, reading as always from a teleprompter, laughed as he talked about the abysmal April jobs numbers.

Kamala Harris laughed a while ago when she was asked about visiting the southern border.

It's not funny, folks.

Bidenomics: Jobless rate up, only 266K jobs added

Three months of Joe Biden and his surrogates trashing big business are taking their toll. And the extension of jobless rates by the president encourages people to stay home. 

And soon inflation will be roaring back.

From Fox News:

An expected U.S. hiring boom crashed into a wall in April, with employers adding a measly 266,000 new jobs – sharply missing Wall Street's expectations – amid a growing shortage of available workers.
The unemployment rate unexpectedly rose to 6.1% — while it's still well below the April 2020 peak of 14.7%, it's about twice the pre-crisis level, the Labor Department said in its monthly payroll report, released Friday morning.
Economists surveyed by Refinitiv expected the report to show that unemployment fell to 5.8% and the economy added 978,000 jobs. The figure marks a significant drop from March's downwardly revised number of 770,000 and February's upwardly revised 536,000.

Time for another nap: Sleepy Joe's Amtrak story defies facts

He's drifiting. 

As for Amtrak it needs to be privatized. Or shut down.

From the Daily Mail:

President Joe Biden's strange anecdote about reaching 1.5 million miles on Amtrak has come under scrutiny after key inconsistencies emerged that make it impossible to have occurred as he told it.

On Friday, delivering a speech in Philadelphia commemorating the 50th anniversary of Amtrak, Biden launched into the tale of a certain conductor congratulating him on reaching the milestone as he traveled to visit his sick mother. 

Biden said the incident occurred in his 'fourth or fifth year as vice president', or around 2014-2015, at which time the conductor he named had been retired for 20 years and his mother had passed away, inconsistencies first pointed out by Fox News.

Biden's son, Hunter, once sseved on the board of Amtrak. Why?

New York City schools have canceled Columbus Day

Facebook will continue to block Trump from its platform

In my opinion Facebook would have blocked Donald J. Trump from its platform even if there was no riot at the Capitol. He's banned from Instagram too, which Facebook also owns.

Big Tech needs to be broken up bigly.

But the continuing of the ban will only harden the resolve of his millions of supporters.

From NPR:

Facebook was justified in its decision to suspend former President Donald Trump after the Jan. 6 insurrection [My note: correction, riot] at the U.S. Capitol, the company's oversight board said on Wednesday. That means the company does not have to reinstate Trump's access to Facebook and Instagram immediately. 

But the panel said the company was wrong to impose an indefinite ban and said Facebook has six months to either restore Trump's account, make his suspension permanent, or suspend him for a specific period of time.

Numerous media sources are identifying this crazy woman as black

And TMZ, who knows her identity but isn't saying it yet, says she hasn't taught for several years. 
Oh, she must be making good money if she is driving a Mercedes.
