The driver of the Camaro, Michael de Guzman, stayed at the scene, where he was charged with driving while intoxicated and driving while ability impaired, police said. Charges against the Queens man were expected to be upgraded after Milligan’s death.

Clearly this is the most serious form of DUI and should result in sever sentence.

Plus, I’d be interested in the citizenship or residence status given that the current Biden administration is not enforcing the immigration laws.

RANT: Biden kills “union funds transparency”

President Biden Sides Against Union Rank-and-File
By James Sherk  April 15, 2022

James Sherk is the director of the Center for American Freedom at
the America First Policy Institute. He previously served as a special
assistant to the president in the Domestic Policy Council at the White
House during the Trump administration.

*** begin quote ***

Of course, siding against workers is not the best look politically.

Neither is shutting down transparency.

The Biden Administration understandably rolled back the transparency regulation very quietly. Biden’s Labor Department killed the rule without fanfare on December 30 — the day before the New Year’s Eve holiday, when most union members and the press enjoyed Christmas vacations. 

President Biden proclaims himself “the most pro-union President leading the most pro-union administration in history.” He is actually leading the most pro-union boss administration in history. As UAW members can attest, those are not the same thing.

I missed this one and, of course, so did “the Fourth Estate” aka the Gooferment’s house propaganda arm.

RANT: Hollywood hypocrisy — Will Smith outrage; Roman Polanski award

Spare me Hollywood’s nauseating hypocrisy over Will Smith — these same people gave Roman Polanski an Oscar after he raped a child
By Piers Morgan
April 4, 2022 4:55pm  Updated

*** begin quote ***

There are few better illustrations of Tinsel Town’s warped morality than the shocking case of acclaimed film director Roman Polanski who was 44 when he drugged and raped a 13-year-old girl. 

He admitted unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor but before he received his full sentence, he fled America in 1978 and has never returned to face justice for his despicable crime.

Now, given Hollywood’s current fit of faux-indignant moral rage over Will Smith’s slap to Chris Rock’s face, and its frantic effort to cancel him off the face of the acting planet, you might assume that it reacted with far greater fury and disgust to someone who abused and sodomized a young girl after plying her with quaaludes.

But you would be wrong.

Instead, Hollywood carried on hiring Polanski to direct movies from his European exile, and in 2003, it awarded him the Oscar for Best Director at the Academy Awards for his work on The Pianist.

Of course, he wasn’t there to receive it in person … … … 

*** end quote ***

Once again I find myself on the same side of an argument as Piers Morgan.  What’s the world coming to?  Who’s moving which way?

I really don’t care what “celebrities” do or say.  And, especially when the hypocrisy is overflowing.

That goes for politicians, bureaucrats, and “experts” who are out of their area of expertise.  

In this case, Piers Morgan is spot on and “over the target”.

First, the New York Times decides more than a year later that Hunter Biden’s business woes are worthy of a story. Then, deep in the piece, in passing, it notes that Hunter’s laptop is legitimate.

“People familiar with the investigation said prosecutors had examined emails between Mr. Biden, Mr. Archer and others about Burisma and other foreign business activity,” the Times writes. “Those emails were obtained by The New York Times from a cache of files that appears to have come from a laptop abandoned by Mr. Biden in a Delaware repair shop. The email and others in the cache were authenticated by people familiar with them and with the investigation.”

Authenticated!!! You don’t say. You mean, when a newspaper actually does reporting on a topic and doesn’t just try to whitewash coverage for Joe Biden, it discovers it’s actually true?

Writing in the Wall Street Journal, Michael Taube wonders if Canadian democracy will survive strongman Justin Trudeau’s authoritarianism. A slice:

At the same time, Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland announced the Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada would be expanded to monitor funds raised by the Freedom Convoy through GoFundMe and cryptocurrency. Banks would also be able to freeze accounts of people suspected of contributing to this protest, without a court order. This has caused both average citizens and business owners embarrassment and potential harm to their livelihoods.

While some Canadians supported Ottawa’s decision out of frustration with the protests and blockades of border crossings like the Ambassador Bridge between Detroit and Windsor, Ontario, others were furious. Mr. Trudeau was criticized for abandoning civil liberties, free speech and the right to protest. He’s been called a “tyrant,” “totalitarian” and “dictator.” The Canadian Civil Liberties Association took the prime minister and his government to court last week. Left-leaning newspapers like the Toronto Star have condemned him.

‘Is that cool now, to choose to represent a totalitarian police state over America,’ he asked, kicking off his monologue. 

‘The Olympics pretends to only be about sports but of course, the games have always been a bit of a proxy war for which country has the best system. 

‘And by choosing Team China, Eileen Gu became a living symbol of China’s triumph over the west, which wouldn’t bother me so much if I thought China had triumphed over us in the ways that really matter. But they haven’t.’

It was not mentioned in the LA Times’ article that Smith had prior arrests, or that he had been released on a $1,000 bond for a misdemeanor in October 2020.

RANT: Shots, all inject genetic material into your body

https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2022/01/15/peter-mccullough-covid-spike-protein-lecture.aspx

What You Need to Know About the COVID Shot, and More
Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola
January 15, 2022

  • The COVID shots are based on the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, which is the most pathogenic part of the virus, responsible for the worst symptoms of COVID-19, such as the abnormal blood clotting seen in severely ill patients
  • Pfizer’s and Moderna’s mRNA shots, and Janssen’s vector DNA shot, all inject genetic material into your body that program your cells to start producing this spike protein. They’re gene transfer technologies that instruct your body to produce a dangerous protein inside its own tissues
  • A Pfizer biodistribution study showed both the mRNA and spike protein is widely distributed in the body. In particular, it accumulates in the ovaries. Despite that, reproductive toxicology studies were eliminated in the interest of speed
  • The average number of adverse event reports following vaccination for the past 10 years has been about 39,000 annually for all vaccines combined, with an average of 155 deaths. The COVID jabs alone now account for 701,126 adverse events in U.S. territories as of December 17, 2021, including 9,476 deaths
  • Cases of myocarditis explode after the second shot, and disproportionally affect boys; 90% of post-jab myocarditis reports are males, and 85% of reports occurred after the second dose. Cases are also inversely correlated to age, with younger boys being at greater risk. The estimated incidence for post-jab cardiac adverse events is 162 per million for boys aged 12 through 15, and 94 per million for boys aged 16 to 17

*** begin quote ***

In the video presentation above, Dr. Peter McCullough, a highly credentialed and published cardiologist, internist and epidemiologist, and one of the primary physicians leading the charge to provide commonsense clinical wisdom into COVID treatments, explains what the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein is and how it harms human biology — whether it comes from a natural SARS-CoV-2 infection or a COVID jab.

The presentation was given at the Burleson, Texas, COVID Symposium: A Legal Perspective, which streamed live December 3, 2021. He begins by addressing the necessity for safety whenever a new biologic product is launched. Safety is not something we can simply ignore, no matter what else is at stake. We must demand that whatever we’re given actually meets some kind of safety standard.

Warning bells started ringing in McCullough’s ears in the summer of 2020, long before the COVID shots were rolled out. “I was telling lawmakers that we’ve got a problem,” McCullough says, because corners were being cut that might result in a dangerous product. Safety studies, for example, were truncated down to a mere two months, which doesn’t allow for adequate evaluation.

A prosecutor is seeking the death penalty for two people charged with shooting dead a veteran Illinois police officer with her own weapon as she pleaded for her life on the ground and critically wounding her partner, who is now fighting for his life. Although Illinois isn’t a death penalty state, the U.S. Attorney General can authorize the filing of a petition to seek out the punishment in certain federal murder cases. In court on Monday, Kankakee County State’s Attorney Jim Rowe painted the picture of a cold-blooded killing that deserved that designation during a bond hearing for Xandria Harris, 26 (bottom-right), of Bradley in the county’s Circuit Court. She and Darius Sullivan, 25 (bottom left), are charged with fatally shooting Bradley police Sgt. Marlene Rittmanic, 49 (top), and critically wounding her partner, Officer Tyler Bailey, 27 (inset), late Wednesday. Bailey is hospitalized at a Chicago-area hospital. ‘At the time Sullivan fired the fatal shots into Sgt. Rittmanic, Sgt. Rittmanic was pleading with them to just leave, “you don’t have to do this, please just go, please don’t please don’t.” She was desperately pleading for her life,’ Rowe said, according to court documents.

Authored by Brandon Smith via Alt-Market.us

There has been an unfortunate shift in Western educational practices in the past few decades away from what we used to call “critical thinking.” In fact, critical thinking was once a fundamental staple of US colleges and now it seems as though the concept doesn’t exist anymore; at least not in the way it used to. Instead, another brand of learning has arisen which promotes “right thinking”; a form of indoctrination which encourages and rewards a particular response from students that falls in line with ideology and not necessarily in line with reality.

*** and ***

Why don’t people trust the science and scientists anymore?

This is simple: Because many scientists have been caught lying and misrepresenting their data to fit the conclusions they want rather than the facts at hand. Science is often politicized to serve an agenda. This is not conspiracy theory, this is provable fact.

Hunter Biden never fails to catch a break, from the White House or the elite media

*** begin quote ***

Boy, does Hunter Biden get a ton of breaks. The White House has basically given up on setting any ethical rules for the First Son, while the cultural elite rush to cover for his sleaze.

Last week, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki refused to commit to “basic transparency” about Hunter’s divestment from an investment fund owned by a Chinese-state entity during a White House Press Briefing. She also refused to admit his infamous laptop is authentic.

“The president’s son is not an employee of the federal government, so I’d point you to his representatives,” Psaki snarked after being asked about the China connection. She used the same lame excuse back in February: “He’s a private citizen — I would point you to him or his lawyers on the outside on any update.”

And never mind that President Joe Biden pledged last December that no family member would have a conflict of interest in his administration: “My son, my family will not be involved in any business, any enterprise that is in conflict with or appears to be in conflict with where there’s appropriate distance from the presidency and government,” he told CNN.

Becky Hammon is an American who plays for the WNBA’s San Antonio Silver Stars. She’s also going to play in the Olympics in Beijing — but not for Team USA.

Instead, Hammon will play for Russia’s Olympic basketball team. Hammon has no Russian ancestry, but she has played professionally in Russia, and she became a Russian citizen to aid her basketball career. In the eyes of the International Olympic Committee, that’s good enough for her to play for Russia.

That doesn’t sit well with some in this country. During a CNN interview, Team USA women’s basketball coach Anne Donovan referred to Hammon as a “traitor.” Similar sentiments were expressed today on ESPN’s Outside the Lines.

“I’m not working without my phone,” one user wrote on a Reddit forum for Amazon workers. “I’m not going to quit, I’m going to either work with my phone or make them fire me for that reason.”

“If people who survived can prove that they got warnings via phone before managers told them to shelter in place, and that their phones saved lives, I’d say that’s a pretty good argument for keeping them,” another said.

“They’ll ban phones again,” a third predicted. “They don’t give a s—t about the workers.”

Sorry but this one is an easy one.

Maybe six gazillion dollar lawsuits for wrongful death will help Amazon see the error of their policy.  

Where’s OSHA?

RANT: “Ze” and “Sir” are attempts to redefine deviancy by those who are woke

Defiant Student Sues Catholic School Over ‘Contrived’ Demand For ‘Ze’
Bob Kellogg, Billy Davis, American Family News | Dec 4, 2021

American Family News has pointed out in previous, related stories that this re-invented language has moved far beyond calling a male classmate “Andrea” instead of “Andy.” There are now “neo-pronouns” with made-up words “Ze” and “Zir” instead of “He” and “Her,” for example. According to the website myprouns.org, some fellow students and co-workers now demand the plural usage “they” instead of “her” or “him.” The reasons for “they” vary: Some students choose “they” instead of “him” or her” because they don’t want to be identified by a gender. Or people call someone “they” if unsure of a person’s preferred gender, because getting called the wrong gender can be harmful. Sometimes, however, “they” is used because a person wants their gender to be private, the website unhelpfully explains.

Regardless of why “they” is used, the student’s punishment at Exeter High is the latest example that these made-up language rules demand obedience and there is swift punishment for violating them.

According to the lawsuit, which was filed Nov. 4, the male student told the court he is defying the school’s policy and “will never refer to any individual personal pronouns such as ‘they,’ using contrived pronouns such as ‘ze,’ or with any similar terminology that reflects values which (the student) does not share.”

Reacting to lawsuit, radio host Todd Starnes asked his audience what happens if Exeter High students demand to be called “Turd Face” by other students, too. That crude description, he said, would be called ridiculous because that is not a real description for a person.

“Yeah,” Starnes concluded, “well there’s also no such thing as a pronoun named ‘Ze’ or ‘Zir’ but they still use them. They just made them up.”

On a more serious note, citing the lawsuit, Starnes said the student pointed out his own beliefs about male and female follow the teachings of the Catholic Church.

Maybe what once was, “the Catholic Church”.

Goes back to my theory that, like a beehive, their can only be “one Queen bee”. Gooferment, by aiding and abetting, pedophilia in the Church sowed the seeds to “kill” a rival for the people’s adoration. 

While I bear no ill-will to those who have some sort of sexual identity problem, there is only “male and female” in reality. 

Only the “liberals”, aka Communists, want to confuse and divide us on every issue.

I feel more solidarity to the people they seek to “distinguish as different”, than those who promulgate new “rights” for those who are “different”.

We’re all “different”; so learn to live and let live.

RANT: Once again, I’m forced to agree with Piers; Biden has earned the scorn of the electorate

PIERS MORGAN: President Biden’s shameful move to muzzle the US media is a cynical and desperate Kim Jong-un style attempt to hide the fact that his presidency is turning into a total disaster

It’s the kind of thing that regularly happens in Russia, China or North Korea.

When journalists stray too far above their totalitarian-controlled station and dare to hold their political leaders to any form of proper account, they get a visit or phone call from shady Government officials.

*** and ***

I wonder what it could have been that suddenly turned the media so negative against the President?

Oh wait, I remember.

  • August was when the cowardly leader of the free world threw millions of Afghanistan women to the Taliban wolves with his shocking sudden withdrawal of US troops, betraying American allies and costing many lives.
  • Then he authorized a disastrous botched drone strike on a terror suspect in Kabul that killed an innocent family of 10 including women and children.
  • In September, fresh mayhem erupted on the Southern border due to catastrophic mixed messaging from the Biden administration and Americans watched in horror as US border patrol horsemen charged into Haitian migrants. The President shamefully blamed his guards for the chaos, not himself for causing it.
  • In October, Biden tried to criminalize American parents who protested against their kids being taught woke agenda subjects like Critical Race Theory by encouraging the National Schools Board Association to disgracefully brand them ‘domestic terrorists.’
  • Later that month, America ground to a virtual shuddering halt with a vast flotilla of cargo ships stuck off the Californian coast, and a chronic shortage of food-delivery drivers causing empty shelves to appear right across the country.
  • This was a direct consequence of Biden’s reckless desire to behave like an all-year-round Santa Claus with his massive Covid-19 stimulus spending spree that sparked the inflation that provoked this crisis.
  • Prices surged, especially at the fuel pump, wages stagnated, and vast swathes of the American workforce quit their jobs because their President made it more economically beneficial for people to stay at home than go to work.

Yet far from the media giving Biden a tougher time than Trump over all this, as Milbank suggests, most of them went out of their way to defend him.

Once again, I’m forced to agree with Piers.  Despite being on a different page politically than he is, here I think he is spot on.

As Bill Clinton always said “It’s the economy stupid”.  And Sleepy Old Joe has screwed the pooch on that one.

Single handedly, killing the Keystone pipeline and making US oil difficult to get out of the ground, he has take the US from net-exported to begging OPEC for help.

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Piers has assembled a great list of the difficulties that Joe has put himself in.
