Mike’s Musings

Random thoughts, opinions, ideas and prognostications on the day's events.

Let’s take a look at what the new administration has accomplished so far this week. Right after taking the oath of office the new President gave what might have been a rather stirring speech if he was ever able to get his tongue out of hi cheek. He gave this rousing call to unity and civility, knowing all along that many of his day one executive orders would do more to alienate those who did not vote for him than all the Trump rallies combined. We will dissect those in a separate post but right now let’s just put it down as an inauspicious start to a dismal start to this Presidency.

The first press briefing was so fawning that that when I first saw it I thought for sure it was a satire from the Babylon Bee. It really was sad to watch as members of the White House press corps ask about things like the color scheme on Air Force One. If I didn’t know any better I would think they asked Alexa, “What’s the stupidest, most inane and meaningless questions we can ask a Press Secretary.”

One of those aforementioned executive orders concerned wearing face coverings while on Federal Property. Then he goes to to teh Lincoln Memorial, which last I checked was Federal property and gave a speech while violating his own executive order and not wearing a mask. “Rules are for the and not for me.” This is the MO for so many in the ruling elite from both parties but people are really getting tired of it.

One person asked Biden one question and Crazy Uncle Joe bit his head off with his trademark “Cmon Man!” as if this answered and rendered moot any and all questions to him that have not been vetted by his handlers. The question for most of us is when is he going to give a real press conference?

In short, I am not impressed. Not that I expected I would be . It’s going to be a long four years.

Gee Can you imagine the military presence if Biden wasn’t the most popular President in history.

A few thousand National Guard troops could end up staying in the nation’s capital until mid-March, a U.S. defense official confirms to Fox News. The National Guard is in the process of meeting with various federal agencies to “determine their requirements” for troops to stay beyond January, the official said. Planning is underway, but no final decisions have been made, the official added.

TAX TAX TAX TAX TAX TAX That’s all these Progressive Regressives know how to do

Transportation Secretary nominee Pete Buttigieg suggested raising the federal gas tax in order to fund infrastructure initiatives during his confirmation hearing Thursday before the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee. Republican Florida Sen. Rick Scott asked the former South Bend mayor if he would favor a federal gas tax increase to pay for the Highway Trust Fund. The fund is mostly financed by revenue from federal gas taxes but has become less financially solvent in recent years, according to the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center.

Child Porn, Maduro, the CCP, Farrakhan-all this is fine. Only American Citizens with a conservative viewpoint must be silenced by this self appointed Ministry of Truth.

In the weeks following the Capitol riot, Twitter has become possibly the most hated name on the internet – and the most acclaimed. Depending on whom you ask, the microblogging platform acted heroically or tyrannically in cutting Donald Trump’s character limit to zero. But recent activity shows that the social media heavyweight is far from finished. Despite suffering a drop in financial markets, Twitter apparently intends to continue the purge. Big box media outlets are still lauding the company’s decision to ban Trump, and it’s perhaps no wonder: Software service Zignal Labs claimed that misinformation on election fraud dropped by 73% in the week after multiple social media outlets disconnected him. Having already suspended Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) for 12 hours, it seems for disputing the election results, and suspending more than 70,000 accounts “sharing QAnon content,” where is Twitter likely to go next?

Great. Take away Mexico’s incentive to protect their southern border. This will be a boon to coyotes who prey on migrants, and human traffickers who victimize women and children.

The Biden administration has discontinued a Trump policy that forced migrants who sought asylum at U.S. border crossings to remain in Mexico for months until their day in court. Starting Thursday, asylum-seekers arriving anywhere along the 2,000-mile U.S.-Mexico border will not be turned around, the government announced, as was policy under the Department of Homeland Security’s Migrant Protection Protocols program, better known as “remain in Mexico.” The program was implemented in January 2019, and since then, 67,000 people have been enrolled. Migrants who presented themselves to federal law enforcement officers at border crossings and who were arrested for sneaking over the border are both returned to Mexico if they seek asylum during the process. The program was rolled out as a growing number of migrant families were arriving at the southern border and attempts to “meter” how many people could apply for asylum at ports of entry per day and illegal crossings were dramatically rising. Amid the surge of people, the government was unable to hear and decide claims in the 20-day limit that it is allowed to detain families in immigration custody, forcing them to release people into the United States.

The level of vindictiveness of these two is matched only by their hypocrisy.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will send the article of impeachment on former President Trump to the Senate on Monday, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said Friday, according to multiple news reports. The trial will be followed by a Senate trial. The Democrat-controlled House impeached Trump on a single article, related to inciting a riot, after the Jan. 6 breach of the U.S. Capitol Building following a pro-Trump rally. “There will be a trial,” Schumer said, according to the Associated Press. “It will be a full trial, it will be a fair trial”

But that’s ok because trump is banned all is right with the cyber world. What a turd Jack Dorsey is.

Twitter refused to take down widely shared pornographic images and videos of a teenage sex trafficking victim because an investigation “didn’t find a violation” of the company’s “policies,” a scathing lawsuit alleges. The federal suit, filed Wednesday by the victim and his mother in the Northern District of California, alleges Twitter made money off the clips, which showed a 13-year-old engaged in sex acts and are a form of child sexual abuse material, or child porn, the suit states.  The teen — who is now 17 and lives in Florida — is identified only as John Doe and was between 13 and 14 years old when sex traffickers, posing as a 16-year-old female classmate, started chatting with him on Snapchat, the suit alleges.

Antifa militants? What Antifa militants? They’re a myth, right Joe? You r weren’t referring to them when you spoke about domestic terrorism because they don’t exist, right? What was it you said? Oh yeah-“Antifa is just an idea.” Nice to see the Commander in Chief has such a firm grasp on reality.

They really don’t want Joe. Antifa militants chanted “f—k” President Biden during a rampage through Seattle after the inauguration — and smashed up the historic site of the very first Starbucks. Seattle cops made at least three arrests as at least 100 protesters scrawled graffiti, smashed windows and even set fire to an American flag, according to the Seattle Times. Videos showed the mob chanting their allegiance to “Antifa” and repeatedly decrying the election of a left-wing president, Biden. “F—k Trump, f—k Biden too, they don’t give a f—k

BIG LEAGUE ECONOMICSPete Buttigieg: Keystone XL Pipeline Workers Need to Get Different Jobs What new jobs, exactly? Published 6 hours ago on Jan 21, 2021

By Richard Moorhead

Imagine being told to ‘learn to code-‘ in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic and an economic recession. Biden’s Department of Transportation nominee, Pete Buttigieg, did almost exactly that in Senate confirmation proceedings on Thursday, flatly stating that union workers employed in the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline need to get different jobs. President Biden terminated construction approval for the pipeline on his first day in office. Senator Ted Cruz questioned Buttigieg about the administration’s plans for workers promptly swept out of a job.

When Rush first came to prominence during the Clinton Administration I was driving for a living and was able to listen to most of his three hour show every day. He made the Clinton years bearable as one of the few dissenting voices in a media that seemed determined to anoint the Clintons as the second coming of Camelot. He did it with class and humor as well as in a way that made you think. click the link below this excerpt to read more of this monologue.

RUSH: President Biden wrote an executive order mandating masks on federal property. So naturally he was not wearing one at the Lincoln Memorial last night, hours after signing his own executive order. This is called leading by example, ladies and gentlemen. Democrats with this very move were given a green light to be raging hypocrites, as if they needed it. They don’t need a green light. They can behave with hypocrisy automatically.
