Democrats think you are stupid…

After Biden’s disasterous debate performance, the mask is off.

We’ve known for several years that Biden has some cognitive issues. We can clearly see this every time he opens his mouth.

Yet the democrats (media, Hollyweird, liberal pundits, etc.) were pushing another narrative and protecting Biden because OrangeManBad.

Two months ago, this was actor Michael Douglas praising Biden as being “sharp as a tack.”

Flash forward to today and Douglas has had a change of heart (along with actor George Clooney, who just raised money for Biden at a fundraiser). Douglas now says, “the Democratic party needs to “get it in sync, you know, just for a candidate.”

My how the winds have shifted once the truth is now allowed to be said.

Just how long will Biden hold on? Will Dr. Jill be able to drag him across the finish line?

Democrats really think you are stupid. Turns out they are too stupid to realize that we will not give into their essential command.

Illegal alien indicted on rape released on $500 bail

This is America under demorat rule…

(story starts at :20 mark)

Story from MSN:

Cory Alvarez, an illegal from Haiti, is accused (and now indicted) of raping a disabled 15-year-old at a Massachusetts shelter. He’s been released on bail — despite a request from federal immigration officials to keep him in jail.

The perp was arrested in March and held without bail until he was freed on a $500 bail last week after the Plymouth County Superior Court ignored a request from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to keep the suspect in custody.

The Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office requested that Alvarez be held on $10,000 cash bail with numerous conditions of release. The judge set bail at $500.

The good judge released the perp with an ankle monitor, but ICE officials can’t track him because Boston is a sanctuary city — meaning local authorities don’t have to cooperate with the feds.

The suspect was also ordered to remain in home confinement, surrender his passport and check in twice monthly with probation, according to legal filings obtained by the Globe. He is due back in court on Aug. 13.

Federal immigration authorities said in March that they had filed an immigration detainer against Alvarez with the Plymouth County Sheriff’s Office. However, a spokesperson for the enforcement and removal operations division of ICE told the Globe that Plymouth Superior Court officials “refused to honor” its detainer.

The perp came to the US in June 2023 under President Biden’s parole program for Cubans, Haitians, Nicaraguans and Venezuelans (CHNV).

The illegal alien is being housed at this Comfort Inn in Rockland which was turned into an immigrant shelter, courtesy of taxpayers:

Think the perp will give up this great living condition and show up for his August 13 court date?

Maybe he will. Illegal aliens/criminals seem to have better odds under our current legal system than law-abiding citizens.


Trudeau’s Canada: Citizens with long-term pain claim it’s easier to get euthanasia

This will come as no surprise…

Canada legalized euthanasia in 2016 through their Medical Assistance in Dying  (MAID) program. There were 13,241 MAID deaths reported in Canada in 2022, a thirty percent increase from 2021.

If you thought socialized medicine was bad before legalized euthanasia, take a look at what patients in Canada now have to deal with:

Canadians living with agonizing pain slam the ‘unintelligible’ double standard that leaves them to suffer

From The Daily Mail:

“Canada has long faced criticism for its ultra-permissive euthanasia system, with 4.1 percent of all deaths aided by doctors.

Now, it faces fresh outrage from woefully sick people who say it’s easier to get lethal injections than it is to access the ‘medicine’ they need.

In two bombshell moments this month, sufferers of cognitive problems said they’d struggled to get the ‘magic mushroom’ cures that ease their suffering.

Meanwhile, they bemoaned how euthanasia is only getting easier to access.

Noted veteran Kelsi Sheren went public with a call for easier access to plant therapies for traumatized ex-combatants. ‘Why is it that we can access death care, but we can’t access a genuine treatment that can help us become a functioning healthy, taxpaying part of society?’ said Sheren. 

Sheren is CEO of Brass and Unity, a jewelry firm that works to fight high suicide rates among veterans.

Sheren had to hire lawyers, stump up cash and wait months to get the treatment she needed under a special program, she said. All the while, fellow veterans like her were offered MAiD as a way to end their suffering, she adds.

Canada’s Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) program has gone off the rails, she says. ‘We have a predatory behavior of telling individuals that they can’t heal, they can’t get better, and the solution to their problems is death,’ she told True North.

Veterans frequently complain about the shortcomings of state care, which typically involves talk therapy to help ‘wounded warrior’ PTSD sufferers, as well as drugs to fight anxiety and depression.

Restrictions on the drugs are increasingly called into question in a country where assisted suicides become routine.

“It is crazy that people who served our country are being offered death rather than treatment to live,” said Alex Schadenberg, from the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition.”

It’s best to stay healthy as long as you can. Between socialized medicine and the “wokeness” infecting healthcare professionals and institutions, no  one is going to have the best interest in your health.


Not body positive: Obesity a cause of Bell’s Palsy?

Pushing a narrative that is a lie.

Progessives and the media today, in an effort to find more “victims,” like to promote “body positivity,” aka obesity. You can find “fat influencers” all over social media and there are plenty of reality-based tv shows about overweight people.

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, “positive” about obesity. The consequences of being overweight include diabetes and high blood pressure, among many other diseases.

Do you know what else you may be subject to if you are obese ? Bell’s palsy. Studies have shown that being overweight and obesity are also associated with increased risk of Bell´s palsy in children.

Although there is no known cause of Bell’s Palsy, you have greater chance of having it if you have the following:

  • Diabetes
  • A respiratory infection, such as a cold or the flu
  • An autoimmune disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Obesity

In an effort to follow the victimhood trend, an advocate for “body positivity” who recently developed Bell’s Palsy is blaming the stress and anxiety of her national attention as the cause of her infliction.

From The Daily Mail:

Plus-sized Miss Alabama reveals shock health update caused by ‘stress and anxiety’ from vicious trolls

“A plus-size beauty queen has revealed she’s got Bell’s Palsy due to the stress inflicted by trolls who attacked her appearance.  Sara Milliken, 23, was harassed by online bullies who mocked her weight and said she did not deserve the title of Miss National American Alabama.

She gave an update on Sunday night, sharing how the national attention has taken a toll on her health and left her afraid to be seen in public.

Sara wrote: ‘With my story blowing up the way it did I felt an immense amount of stress and anxiety. I didn’t even want to walk into a store or pump my gas because it just felt like the entire was talking about me.

‘Between that and preparing for a national pageant while just trying to be Sara… I ended up with a case of Bell’s Palsy. While there is no way to know for sure what caused it we feel certain that it was caused by the stress I have been experiencing.

Sara, who made national headlines with her win, added that not being able to fully smile has added to her mental plight‘My smile is something I’ve always been proud of. I love smiling at people because you never know if your smile is the only one they see today. Overall, I’m a very smiley person. I’ve even joked that I have a resting smile face.

‘Having this taken away from me has been a bit of a mental battle. But I’m happy to report mentally I have been feeling better and coming to terms with things!”

If you are going to put yourself on the national platform (such as a national beauty contest) and be active on social media as an “advocate for body positivity,” you’d best put on your big girl panties. And for the sake of your life, work to make them little girl panties.

And for the sake of little girls and young women, stop the false narrative of body positivity through obesity! Ask any doctor and they’ll tell you that there is nothing positive about obesity.


Identity politics doesn’t guarantee a “better representative of everybody”

The left are big into identity politics. For some reason, they’ll tell you that the color of their skin and sexual orientation makes them better able to govern. Case in point: Crystal Hudson, who represents the 35th District of the New York City Council.

When Crystal ran she outlined her “Black Agenda” for her district. She mentioned numerous times on her web page that she is “unapologetically pro-Black, pro-queer, pro-justice.”

Her page also states that she was elected in 2021 and made history as the first out gay Black woman ever elected in New York City. How did that turn out for the residents who voted for her? They aren’t too happy:

Furious residents erupt at NYC town hall meeting over crime outside gargantuan migrant shelter that houses 3,000 men

From The Daily Mail:

“A community meeting in Brooklyn devolved into a shouting match when concerned residents from several family-friendly neighborhoods expressed their extreme dissatisfaction with their councilmember over a huge migrant shelter in the area.

City councilmember Crystal Hudson was met with ire from her constituents as she attempted to speak at the community meeting on Monday night.

Residents in the family-oriented neighborhood of Clinton Hill remain uneasy about the migrant shelter that opened last summer right next to the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

The shelter currently accommodates more than 3,000 single men who  crossed the southern border illegally before being transported to New York City. Residents fear the massive shelter puts their children and the area in danger.

Hudson did not help her case when she stood up in the middle of the meeting to announce a stabbing had occurred earlier in the day right by the shelter. ‘There was an incident earlier today – it’s not the first incident, I hope it will be the last – there was a stabbing that was at the park,’ said Hudson.

But Hudson’s comments nonetheless further ignited intense frustration among the crowd at the Boys and Girls Navy Yard Clubhouse.

The news prompted several already angered constituents to stand up and begin shouting. ‘You are avoiding the issue,’ said one man into a microphone, speaking about the shelter. ‘Is there a universe where the city can safely house 3,200 single men together?’

‘It can’t!’ shouted some people in the crowd in response. ‘It is unsafe! It is unsafe!’ cried others.

During the meeting, Hudson – who had City Speaker Adrienne Adams and Comptroller Brad Lander by her side – encouraged angry attendees to save their wrath for City Hall.

She went on to blame the mayor for a lack of support in dealing with the migrant crisis. ‘We have literally said exactly what you just said … I understand the frustration. I get it … But my office has done everything we can,’ she said, according to local reporter Arya Sundaram.

Alejandro Gonzalez, a spokesperson for Councilwoman Hudson, said in a statement to the New York Post that her office confirmed its commitment to ‘caring for’ undocumented migrants.”

When, oh when, are voters going to learn:


Step outside to witness new life and relief

The world today can just be too crazy. With the US economy and politics, “wokeness” shoved down your throat in every issue, tensions in the Middle East and with Russia, and reading the news — it can just about drive you crazy.

How do I escape from it all? I enjoy reading and cooking. I also step outside to my backyard and enjoy nature.

For the second year in a row, we had two Goldfinch (I believe that is the species) nest in a backyard tree and have witnessed the birth of their babies. This could be the same pair from last year as they tend to be monogamous.

On Saturday the mama was sitting on our fence and we approached it as I thought it had a claw stuck in the wire around one of the posts. It managed to flutter a bit as we got closer and moved just a bit down the fence line. But I knew it was not okay. Then the Goldfinch ended up on the ground. We figured it must have flown into something and was “stunned” for a bit. We left a plate of water nearby, retreated, and prayed that the bird would recover.

And recover she did!

On Monday I saw two babies pop their heads up from the nest and in the afternoon they had managed to leave the nest for a nearby branch. From a good distance I was able to capture some photos:

Mama Goldfinch on the right, two babies to the left.

Closeup of the babies.

Both parents have been very protective of the babies, chirping whenever we (or our cats) get too close to the nest. The parents have even been “dive bombing” our cats on the back patio. Once I noticed this I’d go outside with the cats to deter the birds from coming too close to a cat and avoid being caught by one of them.

Baby Goldfinch, day two out of the nest.

As of today, the babies are still staying close to the nest. From what I’ve read, they’ll be around for another week or so before the family moves on.

It’s been a great distraction from the craziness in our world to be able to step out into the backyard and watch the new bird life. A much-needed and stress-relieving break!

Get out of California: Newsom’s budget will defund fighting crime

We all know about the crime in California. Get ready for things to get worse as it’s no doubt going to happen. From the Daily Mail:

California’s Dem. Gov Gavin Newsom unveils new plans to defund the police in crime-ridden state after massive budget deficit

In 2022 Newsom bragged of having a $97.5 billion surplus. Fast forward two years later and the state now faces a $45 billion deficit. Great job, democrats.

From the article:

California governor Gavin Newsom‘s proposed new budget would slash funding for the police as the state struggles with a massive deficit of at least $45 billion.

Last month the Democrat unveiled his budget for the next fiscal year, admitting that ‘difficult decisions’ are needed to address the state’s deficit – including a 1.6 percent reduction in the state’s Department of Justice’s overall funding.

The proposed budget includes a $97 million cut to trial court operations, $10 million to the Department of Justice’s Division of Law Enforcement and over $80 million to the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, as reported by Fox News. 

Newsom’s plan comes as major national stores and local businesses in California say they continue to face rampant theft. Videos of large-scale thefts, in which groups of individuals brazenly rush into stores and take goods in plain sight, have often gone viral.

Crime data shows the San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles saw a steady increase in shoplifting between 2021 and 2022. Across the state, shoplifting rates rose during the same time period but were still lower than the pre-pandemic levels in 2019, while commercial burglaries and robberies have become more prevalent in urban counties.

Meanwhile homelessness jumped 6 percent to more than 180,000 people in California last year, federal data show. And since 2013, the numbers have exploded by 53 percent with the state accounting for a third of America’s entire homeless population.

The state’s criminal justice record which saw the number of violent crimes jump by 27 percent between 2013 and 2022, and pickpocketing more than double.

Voters in California about to learn the hard way:


Obese activist now making more demands on businesses

Progressives today have abandoned all sense of personal responsibility in favor of victimhood. Case in point: Plus-size activist Jae Bae.

Bossy fat activist Jae Bae

Not content to demand that airlines provide extra free seats for obese fliers, she’s now demanding that Uber and Lyft ride-share service companies provide seat belt extenders for plus-size passengers. From the Daily Mail:

“Every time I use a ride share, I’m forced to go without a seatbelt because no belt extenders are available. This is a common issue for many plus-size individuals,’ she wrote in the caption of the video.

Chaney wrote that she always brings a universal seatbelt extender with her on rides, but they often don’t work despite being advertised as ‘universal.’

She added that companies such as Uber and Lyft should reimburse drivers for the cost of seatbelt extenders, which go for as low as $12 on Amazon.

‘If each driver carried at least one seatbelt extender specifically fitted for their vehicle, this problem could be eliminated. Safety for all sizes SHOULD NOT be optional,’ she concluded.”

Here’s my favorite part of the story: “She continued: ‘This isn’t just inconvenient—it’s unsafe. It should be mandatory for ride shares to provide at least one seatbelt extender per vehicle.”

You know what’s unsafe, Jae Bae? Your obesity.

Maybe it should be mandatory that Jae Bae take a little personal responsibility for her own actions.
