I know right….
I must have missed the “free wifi that others pay for” button when I signed up.
I now expect reparations for my years of over-payment as well. 🙂

“Mitch McConnell Did The Nation A Great Favor By Keeping Merrick Garland Off The Supreme Court
If there were a scintilla of doubt that McConnell did the nation a great favor, that doubt should have been put to rest during Garland’s June 15, 2021, speech on “Violent Extremism and Domestic Terrorism.” The ideological purge will make Lois Lerner blush.”
“Mitch McConnell likes to boast, including recently, that his most consequential achievement in his Senate career was keeping Merrick Garland from filling the Scalia seat after the death of the great conservative Justice.
McConnell, with a consistency his detractors refuse to acknowledge, followed historical practice and precedent in refusing to allow the Senate to take up the Obama nomination of Garland in an election year where the party controlling the Senate (Republicans) differed from the party controlling the presidency (Democrats). The confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett in 2020 was consistent with this practice, because the same party (Republicans) controlled the Senate and presidency.
In 2017, Neil Gorsuch — not Merrick Garland — filled the Scalia seat after Trump’s victory in 2016. So far, so good.
Garland now is U.S. Attorney General. If there were a scintilla of doubt that McConnell did the nation a great favor, that doubt should have been put to rest on June 15, 2021.
On that date, Garland delivered an address on “violent extremism and domestic terrorism” that reflects an ongoing weaponization of federal law enforcement and national security apparatuses in a war not just on people who pose a credible and actionable threat of violence, but on people who pose an ideological threat.”
“Garland made clear that he was leading an all-government effort:”

She’s a real peach.
Yet they all want to pretend that nothing out of the ordinary occurred…
Where’s the forensic audit of Georgia?
Trump was right. Again.
“Last Saturday, former President Donald Trump released a statement that said, “Have you noticed that they are now admitting I was right about everything they lied about before the election?” The statement went on to list specific points, ranging from the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) as a treatment for COVID-19 to the “Russian bounties” story to the need to reopen schools. And you know what? He was right. And so were we.
We were right about the efficacy of HCQ as a treatment for COVID-19. A new study “found that the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine, along with zinc, could increase the coronavirus survival rate by as much as nearly 200% if distributed at higher doses to ventilated patients with a severe version of the illness,” according to Yahoo! News. Big Tech should not have canceled – and should not continue canceling – those who tout HCQ and its benefits.
We were right about the origins of the COVID-19 virus. When even liberal icon Jon Stewart chooses to joke about the origins of the coronavirus — and mock those who insist it was born naturally, when “a pangolin kissed a turtle” – you know you’ve hit pay dirt.
We were right about Hunter Biden, President Biden’s son. As a recent New York Post article reported, in 2015 Hunter brought his then-vice president father to a dinner at Washington’s trendy Café Milano with Ukrainian, Russian, and Kazakhstani business associates.
We were right about Blue State lockdowns – they didn’t work. As Victor Joecks wrote, “From coronavirus deaths to unemployment rate to vaccination distribution, states led by Republican governors have outperformed states run by Democrats.”
We were right about the need to reopen schools. Right from the start, we noted the very small chance that school-age children could be severely affected by the coronavirus, and we argued that the damage done by masking and then pulling children out of in-person class was greater than the risk of contracting the virus.”
And plenty more.
But the media pretends otherwise, because they’re so invested in their failures and lies.
“A.U.D.I.T. of Elections: The Bombshell Revelations Continue…”
Amazingly some still think there was no shenanigans.
“Thirteen states made election-related news last week, as the interest is growing among Americans about continuing reports of election irregularities, seeping into the public consciousness. And that doesn’t count many miscellaneous reports that cross state lines. Revelations about election machines containing SQL code, missing absentee ballot custody documentation, and The Hologram’s attorney general gearing up to potentially interfere in state-run audits have resulted in more people paying attention than ever before. The Democrat-media complex would like to see this all go away, but that’s not going to happen any time soon.
Let’s examine what has been reported in each of the states. The miscellaneous section at the end bears a careful reading, too.
Epoch TV reported that delegations from 13 states observed the AZ audit last week.”
Dems are getting nervous. 🙂
Now a couple for Fathers’ Day.
“What research says about two-parent families keeping kids out of jail and in school”
Note how the left side just can’t seem to admit it’s the lack of fathers, and have to blame made up “systematic racism” to explain the obvious. This is across the board, ethnicity is irrelevant.
“Among study highlights:
Black children in single-parent homes were 3.5 times more likely to live in poverty compared to peers who lived with both parents in a first marriage. Those in stepfamilies are 2.5 times more likely to be poor.
“Clearly Black children in stable, married families are better off financially,” the report says.
Odds of Black young adults graduating from college were almost 70% higher for those raised by their own two parents.
Among young Black adults, those raised in a single-parent or otherwise nonintact home were nearly twice as likely to be incarcerated by their late 20s, compared to peers who grew up in intact families.
They looked separately at outcomes for Black men and women and found similar patterns. Black men who grew up with biological parents were more likely than others to graduate from college. Their incarceration rates were much lower (14%, compared to 24% for single parents and 26% for stepfamilies). Among Black women, 36% earned a college degree by their late 20s if raised by both parents, compared to 18% from single-parent homes and 25% in stepfamilies.
The pattern holds true in white families, too: 47% in intact families earn a degree, compared to 23% from single-parent households and 18% from stepfamilies. And 5% of young adults in intact white families have been incarcerated, compared to 12% raised in other family structures.
Among white women, more graduate from college than white men, while fewer have ever been jailed. Those growing up with their biological parents fare better than those in other family structures on both measures and for both genders.
Disagreeing about root causes
The March 2020 Current Population Survey says 37% of Black children live with both biological parents, 48% in single-parent households and 4% with a biological parent and a nonbiological parent. That survey said 67% of white children live with biological parents, 21% with a single parent and 6% are part of a stepfamily.
In her op-ed, Cross wrote that not living with biological parents doesn’t cost Black youths as much as it costs white peers, “and being raised in a two-parent family is not equally beneficial.” Using three decades’ data from the Panel Study of Income Dynamics, she said tracking living arrangements from childhood to adulthood showed less association between family structure and educational success for Blacks than for whites. Living in a two-parent family “does not increase the chances of finishing high school as much for black students as for their white peers.”
Instead, she said differences in resources largely explain the relationship between family structure and outcomes for Black youths. “If this is the case, then what deserves policy attention is not black families’ deviation from the two-parent family model but rather structural barriers such as housing segregation and employment discrimination that produce and maintain racialized inequalities in family life.”
“What My Dad Taught Me, His Daughter, About Manhood — And Why It Matters
We have a cultural imperative to teach boys how to be men, but we have just as much need to teach girls what masculinity looks like, and to respect and expect it from the men in their lives.”
“It’s easy to idolize your parents as a child, and of course no one is flawless. But as an adult, I continue to look up to my dad greatly. He taught me about the world, and about the integrity and sacrifice necessary to live well in it. In doing so, he also taught me, his daughter, a great deal about manhood.
It’s been observed plenty that the American leftist cultural narrative doesn’t teach boys what they should be learning about manhood. It goes without saying that teaching boys how to be good men is an indispensable part of a flourishing society.
But the public sphere’s masculinity vacuum hurts girls too. Women have no shortage of interactions with men — we marry them, work with them, go to church with them, grow up with them, and raise them. We have a cultural imperative to teach boys how to be men, but we have just as much need to teach girls what masculinity looks like, and to expect it from the men in their lives.

I don’t know if anyone here has complained about Juneteenth becoming a holiday, but I have seen at least a couple negative comments on Facebook. This piece makes a good point about that.
“If you oppose Juneteenth, you agree with critical race theory”
“But no one is calling to supplant the Fourth of July with Juneteenth. Black Americans only want Juneteenth to be recognized and respected as a crucial part of their experience in our country. Critical race theorists say black people have no worthy stake in America. It’s sad to see some conservatives de facto agreeing with these far-left lunatics. The hard Left wants to tear down America’s history out of racial grievance. What we should be doing is what Dr. King preached, giving black people equal treatment. We should be adding to our customs in the name of equality and a fuller liberty for all. Not erasing America.
Jim Antle observed in the Week, writing on the critical race theory-based 1619 Project, “The problem with the 1619 Project is that it effectively — and ahistorically — makes slavery America’s founding mission rather than its greatest sin. A celebration of emancipation in fulfillment of our 1776 founding principles does the opposite. The way to unify a diverse and divided country is to keep adding to the pantheon rather than canceling what is already there. … Martin Luther King and Thomas Jefferson, Juneteenth and Fourth of July together.”
Our liberties are God-given. No man has the right to take them away. If we truly believe in our founding principles, we should acknowledge the liberty many of our countrymen were once denied.”
