Something to remember when Democrats claim racism: 13 Senate Democrats voted against Black female judge nominated by Trump

 With the new Supreme Court nomination coming soon, claims of racism are sure to be lodged against any Republican who votes against the black female that Biden has promised to nominate. From Fox News:

The Senate Democrats in question all voted against Ada E. Brown, former President Trump’s nominee for district judge of the northern district of Texas.

Brown, a Black woman, was confirmed in September 2019 by a vote of 80-13, with the 13 "nay" votes coming from Democratic Senators Chuck Schumer, Tammy Baldwin, Richard Blumenthal, Sherrod Brown, Maria Cantwell, Catherine Cortez Masto, Kirsten Gillibrand, Mazie Hirono, Ed Markey, Patty Murray, Brian Schatz, Debbie Stabenow and Ron Wyden.

Only two of the offices for the 13 senators who voted against Brown’s confirmation responded to Fox News Digitals’ requests for comment.

Is the frequency of tornadoes increasing because of "climate change"? No.

 Biden & others who blame the recent deaths from tornados on climate change should look seriously at the work from the National Weather Service.

Biden draws line in sand over Taiwan. Does anyone think that China will stop violating Taiwanese territorial space?

The US House's January 6th Commission is worried about what I was doing when I worked at the US DOJ

 A copy of the committee's deposition of Jeffrey Clark, who served as acting Attorney General for the US DOJ is available here. This is pretty funny.

Who voted for Glenn Youngkin: Hispanics went strongly for Youngkin

The Wall Street Journal has an interesting breakdown of who voted for Youngkin over McAuliffe. The breakdown raises questions about how the media is describing the win. Given the higher percentage of the vote that Youngkin received among Hispanics.

Progressive cable TV voices blamed defeat on citizens’ bigotry, saying the GOP won because of appeals to “white nationalism” and “dog-whistle racism.” Some strategists now advise Democrats to base their 2022 campaigns on this assumption by telling voters that “powerful elites and special interests use race as a tool of division to distract hard-working people of all races while they get robbed blind.”
Compare the breakdown in 2021 with 2017. In 2021, Youngkin won the Hispanic vote by 55% to 43%. In 2017, the Democrat candidate, Ralph Northam, won it by 67% to 32%. Who won different age or gender groups was the same in both races, though with the groups going Republican did so by smaller margins for Gillespie.

Biden announces feds will go after parents who are "intimidating" public school boards

 "Specialized training will also be made available for local school boards and administrators to assist them in recognizing behaviors that constitute a threat, as well as helping them report the incidents to appropriate law enforcement agencies"

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/doj-launching-effort-to-combat-threats-of-violence-against-school-officials

Q: how bad can "harassment" be if I have to teach u how to recognize it?
This sensitivity training seems at making people toverly sensitive to perceived threats.
Isn't Biden the same guy who when asked about the harassment of Sinema & Manchin said "but it happens to everybody"?

This explains a lot about the Republican Party

From The Hill:

"The Wyoming Republican [Cheney] has also gotten money and support from former Speakers Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and John Boehner (R-Ohio)"

George W. Bush & Karl Rove are also doing a big Dallas fundraiser for Cheney.

I looked up Cheney’s voting record and she is rated below the average Republican by the ACU and NTU. She is rate as more liberal than the average Republican by the ADA and the AFL-CIO’s COPE.

The Washington Post is not a "news" outlet, they are purely an opinion sheet

Why is the Washington Post considered a "news" outlet?  From today's fawning piece on Rep Liz Cheney. It is filled with comments like this: "Should the Republican Party continue to defend Trump's actions and parrot his falsehoods?" "[Trump] lied about the 2020 election" 

My point is simple: how can you say you are a "news" outlet when your news stories are filled with opinion & editorializing? There is no attempt at any balance. The news stories are just editorials for the Democrat party.  Why not just label the Washington Post  as an opinion sheet? 

The problem that all this editorializing creates for me is that I don't put much weight on any of their pieces because I know how biased they are on issues that I can evaluate.

Cancel culture run amok. If you disagree, destroy their career. "Maryland to investigate Derek Chauvin defense witness' time as state's chief medical examiner"

Dr. David Fowler testified Floyd's main cause of death was due to blockage of arteries, enlarged heart, drugs. As someone who watched the trial, I thought that Fowler was the most honest and accurate medical witness. The prosecution witnesses were amazingly dishonest, but no one is going after them. Take the expert who testified that in the thousands of cases of fentanyl overdose death data that he had examined the average was above the level found in Floyd (the median was below it). He claimed that proved Floyd didn't die from a drug overdose. It was idiotic. If I died with a level 12 in my body, that doesn't mean that I still wouldn't have died at a level 4, right? But no one is going after the "experts" on the other side. Fox News has this info:

Maryland officials will conduct an investigation into all deaths that happened in police custody that were overseen by the state's former chief medical examiner, who testified as a defense witness in the trial for former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, Maryland attorney general and governor's offices announced Friday. Chauvin was convicted last week of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd,

Dr. David Fowler, who was Maryland's chief medical examiner from 2002 to 2019 and is now a member of a consulting firm, testified that the primary cause of Floyd's death was a sudden heart rhythm disturbance during police restraint due to underlying heart disease. . . .

Biden wants a 43.4% Capital Gains Tax

It will be over 55% if you live in NY, Calif. Inflation makes it worse, and can easily result in negative investment returns. Say inflation is 100% over 20 yrs & your house increases in price from $200K to $500K. At 55%, the capital gains tax is $165K. After tax return $135K, but you need at least a $200K return to cover inflation. So you are actually going to lose money on this investment. Even a 33% capital gains tax will mean that you make no return on your investment. From the WSJ:

The midday leak to the Biden-sympathetic Bloomberg News managed to tank stocks, with the S&P 500 falling the most in more than a month. Treasury yields also fell on the news, as investors discounted the prospects for growth. Nothing like higher taxes to take some of the bloom off the “Biden boom,” as Democrats are now calling the post-Covid economic recovery.

The leakers told Bloomberg that Mr. Biden will tax capital gains for taxpayers who earn more than $1 million at the personal income tax rate, which he also wants to raise to 39.6% from 37%. Add the 3.8% ObamaCare tax on investment, and you get to 43.4%. And that’s merely the federal rate. Add 13.3% in California and 11.85% in New York (plus 3.88% in New York City), which also tax capital gains as regular income, and you are heading toward the 60% rate range.
