We dare because we are Americans with a right to our opinion. try as you might you still haven’t turned this country into Communist China West, the Bill of Rights has not been repealed, and it is still legal to disagree with the likes of you. That’s how we dare.

The left-leaning women of “The View” weren’t happy Thursday with the abortion arguments on display at the Supreme Court as it heard a case this week with wide-ranging implications for the future of abortion rights. The Supreme Court on Wednesday heard oral arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, where the state of Mississippi is petitioning to strike down a lower court’s ruling blocking its 15-week abortion ban law from taking effect. The case has implications for two longstanding Supreme Court precedents, Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey. After playing highlights of Supreme Court justice remarks during Tuesday’s oral arguments – including liberal Sonia Sotomayor worrying about the “stench” around the judicial branch if it was viewed as a political actor – co-host Whoopi Goldberg erupted.

I’m sorry, but Alec Baldwin isn’t some extra that accidentally got handed a loaded gun. He is a seasoned actor with a great deal of authority on this set and along with that comes a great idea of responsibility. There is nothing to indicate that this was anything other than a tragic accident but one that resulted from gross negligence and arrogant disregard for long-established safety protocols concerning guns. Ohers may be and probably are complicit in this but the lion’s share of the responsibility belongs to the one who pointed the gun. There is no dispute as to who that is.

Alec Baldwin claimed he did not pull the trigger on the set of “Rust,” but gun experts say that a revolver firing without the trigger being pulled is unlikely. In a preview for an upcoming televised tell-all, Baldwin addresses the fact that he was holding a gun that was somehow loaded with a live bullet that should not have been on the set at all, let alone in an actor’s hand. The Oct. 21 incident left cinematographer Halyna Hutchins dead and director Joel Souza injured. During the preview, which is heavily edited for the purpose of teasing the larger interview that’s set to air Thursday evening, an emotional Baldwin states unequivocally that he did not pull the trigger.

Just what New York needs. Another COVID Faucist.

New York Governor Kathy Hochul (D) declared a state of emergency due to the new “Omicron” Covid variant spreading in Africa. The declaration goes into effect on December 3 and gives the Health Department the power to limit “non-essential” procedures (will likely be enforced through the lens of equity) at hospitals. “We continue to see warning signs of spikes this upcoming winter, and while the new Omicron variant has yet to be detected in New York State, it’s coming,” Hochul said.

Here’s an idea. Why don’t we just remove socialist, anti-American students and professors so campuses can become places of education rather than indoctrination?

Several left-leaning student organizations at Arizona State University are demanding that their administration “withdraw” Kyle Rittenhouse from the university. The Arizona State University Students for Socialism, Students for Justice in Palestine, Multicultural Solidarity Coalition, and MECHA de ASU are all calling on the Arizona State University administration to take action against Rittenhouse by withdrawing him from the university and releasing a statement against him. The four groups are calling him “Murderer Kyle Rittenhouse.” Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all charges against him as jurors finished deliberations on Nov. 19. He faced charges after fatally shooting two people and shooting and injuring a third man during the riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Aug. 25, 2020. Rittenhouse is a student at Arizona State University online, according to 12News.

From the article:

“We are seemingly all right with a teenager’s right to take an AR-15 to an area where there is civil unrest. That’s really scary and concerning,” Kerr said to reporters on November 19, according to a report by Reuters. Kerr continued, declaring that the verdict “poses great risk going forward if we continue to go down this path of open carry, and states determining that people, even underage people, can have weapons of war. This is America, and we’re treading down a dangerous path.”

Here’s the thing, Coach. The NBA does billions of dollars in business with a country that jails and kills political and religious dissidents, keeps a minority group in concentration camps, and uses slave labor to produce the sneakers your players run in. Your silence on those issues negates and moral high ground you think you have to criticize the American system of justice.

But then if you prefer to live in a society where prosecution is the result of political pressure rather than facts, exculpatary evidence is suppressed or simply ignored, and justice is meted out at the behest of a power mad head of state, then maybe you should just move to China. There are those who would like to push us in that direction but there were two verdicts with wildly different results this week that prove that despite our inperfections we are not there yet.

The headlines in this tweet perfectly points out the fundamental difference between Biden and Trump. It also puts the lie to so much of their narrative concerning the Republicans being the party of the elite. Both parties are to some extent because that is the nature of a political system without term limits, but the Democrats seem to want to rub our noses in their privilege at every opportunity. Mask mandates that they do not obey themselves when they think the cameras are just one symptom their chronic “rules for thee but not for me” attitude.

Refusing to do anything about the supply chain crises, the highest inflation rate in decades, and an exlpoding crime rate with violence raging virtually unchecked in our cities Biden takes weekly vacations, refuses to answer any questions from the press, mouths some empty platitudes about the military that someone else wrote for him and then jets off to a billionaire wall street insider’s home for Thanksgiving because it’s a “Family Tradition.” Blue color Joe my ass.

As we celebrate Thanksgiving and look to the start of a new liturgical year I would like to propose that we make a special resolution for the upcoming Year of Grace. Let us resolve to pray more often and more fervently for the grace to do the will of our Heavenly Father in all things. There are some times when prayer is the only thing we can do but in all times it is the most important thing. Let us give thanks this day for all that we have. God bless you and Happy Thanksgiving.

The progressive prosecutor responsible for this piece of garbage being loose on the street after committing multiple felonies predicted that his own policies were 100 percent going to result in tragedies like this would happen. He didn’t care. The safety of the people he is sworn to protect takes a back seat to his progressive ideology. He should be named as an accessory before the fact in this crime.

Attempts at criminal bail reform that put violent offenders like Waukesha suspect Darrell Brooks Jr. out on the street at low or no cost is endangering communities around the country, according to experts on criminal justice and law enforcement. Police in cities including Milwaukee, New York, Chicago and Los Angeles are facing understaffing and low morale — in part due to such policies, according to Betsy Brantner Smith, a retired police sergeant and spokesperson for the National Police Association. “These extremely liberal prosecutors who want to talk about restorative justice, and what that means is is that we are putting the public in danger by trying to give these people too many opportunities to re-offend,” she said. “It’s incredibly frustrating for law enforcement, and it’s just absolutely dangerous for our communities.”

Seriously? How do you NOT know this? This is not some obscure little statistic. It’s asking a dietician, “Is fast food good for me?” The level of incompetence in this administration from top to bottom is just plain scary.

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm on Tuesday admitted that she did not know how many barrels of oil the U.S. consumes per day when a reporter suggested that the 50 million barrels the Energy Department plans to release would last less than three days. Granholm during a White House briefing Tuesday, outlined Biden’s strategy to release the barrels of oil currently held in the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve in order to maintain “adequate supply” amid global shortages and skyrocketing gas prices.

This reaction by Harris is as predictable as it is unintentionally revealing. In their view, too many outcomes in trials are still being decided on the facts and evidence presented rather than public outrage and news reports on MSNBC and CNN. Then-candidate Biden condemned Rittenhouse as a white supremacist when that label actually would be more accurately attached to at least one of those who Kyle shot.

From the article in Breitbart:

Harris worked as a prosecutor and served as San Francisco and the State of California’s Attorney General before being elected to the vice presidency last November. However, despite her claims that she spent a majority of her career “working to make the justice system more equitable,” Harris’s prosecutorial record has come under fire multiple times for doing the opposite. Read the rest here.

This woman is a fraud, our and simple. But it doesn’t take much reading between the lines of her asinine statements between maniacal giggles to pick on the danger these leftists present to our way of life. it is by design and we need to wake up to it.
