Monday Musings: Fauci Follies, Mad Maxine, Broke Bobby
Fauci hit four of five Sunday chattering-skull shows (all but Fox News), Gov. Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan blamed the supposed upticks in Michigan on, among other things, the return of “snowbirds,” (i.e., Gov. Ron DeSantis), and the New York Times said COVID-19 vaccinations are lagging in areas carried by…. Donald Trump.
It’s the Sovietized state-run media running amok.
Follow-up question: Was Whitmer asked about two of her top aides recently being spotted in a) Florida and b) Alabama, in apparent defiance of their boss’s lockdown diktats?
Nah, didn’t think so.
Rep. Maxine Waters, who was just screaming about the Jan. 6 “insurrection,” journeyed to Minneapolis Saturday night urging the rioters to “get more confrontational.”
Hours later, the MN National Guard and police were fired upon by mostly peaceful protesters. Two Guardsmen suffered cuts from flying glass caused by the mostly peaceful gunshots.
Riddle me this: would it be a big story if a Republican member of Congress exhorted boomer rubes and Deplorables to “get more confrontational” and two hours later some law-enforcement got shot up?
Headline in the New York Post: “’Consensual incest’ should be decriminalized, advocates say.”
That didn’t take long, did it?
So now it turns out that the Fed Ex shooter in Indianapolis had a gun confiscated by the cops last year, and was interviewed by the FBI, but still was able to purchase two more firearms legally.
But Dementia Joe Biden tells us “red flag” laws would stop mass shootings, even though Indiana’s failed miserably.
By the way, this shooter named Hole apparently was involved with on-line groups that have a fetish with “My Little Pony,” believe it or not. These nuts are called “Bronies.”
So, in keeping with the alt-left narrative, we are now informed by the Wall Street Journal that “Brony online culture has displayed elements of far-right and white-nationalist extremism.”
The Babylon Bee wouldn’t write such nonsense, even as satire.
So now it turns out that wrinkly actor Robert DeNiro is in hock for millions and millions of dollars – both to the IRS and to pay for his estranged wife’s out-of-control spending habits. Which is why he has to keep making one terrible movie after another.
Bottom line: Robert DeNiro does not have mucho dinero.
Feds are continuing “forbearance” on collecting student-loan payments for at least another six months – through October.
That amounts to $5 billion a month.
According to the American Enterprise Institute, the proposed $50,000-per-deadbeat “forgiveness” program being proposed by the Fake Indian and Rep. Ayanna Pressley, among others, would be a mega white-privilege giveaway, delivering “10 times more benefits to borrowers in the top 10% of the income distribution” than to those in the bottom 10%.
Nothing to see here, folks, move along.
Say her name: Ashli Babbitt!
