Missouri Gov. Parson Signs Bill Banning Abortion Providers From Medicaid Reimbursements

The dim-witted Republican usually fumbles the ball. I guess this time he couldn't screw up.

Grounds for Impeachment (Again)

Timothy Birdnow

In unilaterally withholding funds to Israel to stop them from going into Rafah Joe Biden is in direct violation of the Empoundment Control Act of1974, an act that has been found Constitutional by the Supreme Court.

This was the basis for the impeachment of Donald Trump who only SUGGESTED he might withhold funds. Biden has actually done it.

Therefore Congress should impeach Joe Biden. Or do the Democrats believe this law is only applicable to Trump?

Hat tip:Tom Waeghe.

The Campus-Town Races

Timothy Birdnow

I banged out this little ditty to the tune of Camptown Races for Occupy Wall Street some years ago. It's now slighly modified for the campus protests (didn't take much. With apologies to Stephan Foster:

The camptown ladies sing this song
doo-dah, doo-dah
it's getting late and I've lost my bong
oh-da-doo-dah-day!

Gonna raise all night,
gonna protest all day
I got no money, I'm a leftist hag
and the bourgeois pigs will pay!

The hippies treat me like a whore
doo-dah, doo-dah
They're all worked up by Michael Moore
Oh-da-doo-dah-day!

Gonna raise hell all night,
gonna protest all day
I got no money, I'm a leftist hag
and the bourgeois pigs will pay!

We've got no showers or t.v.
doo-dah, doo-dah
But we do have crabs and some t.b.
oh-the-doo-dah-day!

Gonna raise all night,
gonna protest all day
I got no money, I'm a leftist hag
and the bourgeois pigs will pay!

We stink, we're loud, and quite irate
doo-dah, doo-dah
we all demand a Marxist state!
oh-da-do-dah-day!

Gonna raise hell all night,
gonna protest all day
I got no money, I'm a leftist hag
and the bourgeois pigs will pay!

We have no money to pay the rent
doo-dah, doo-dah
so we hang out here inside a tent
oh-da-do-dah-day!

we'd rather live here like some slobs
doo-dah, doo-dah
then waste our time on real jobs
oh-da-do-dah-day!

We only want what we deem fair
doo-dah, doo-dah
free food and schools and free healthcare
oh-da-do-dah-day!!

so we hang around and smoke our dope
doo-dah, doo-dah
though desperately we need some soap
oh-da-do-dah-day

Out here peddling our behinds
doo-da, doo-da
saying it's all for Palestine
oh the doodah day

fired up on pot and booze
doo-dah,doo-dah
Chanting how we hate the Jews
oh the do-dah day

Gonna raise hell all night,
gonna protest all day
I got no money, I'm a leftist hag
and the bourgeois pigs will pay!

Polar Ice Caps

Richard Cronin

Ice capped land around the world would include Greenland. The predominant calving glaciers are the Jacobshaven glacier flowing into the Davis Strait to the West and the Petermann glacier flowing into the Arctic Ocean.

Penetrating radar surveys by the U.S. National Snow & Ice Data Center (NSIDC) have determined that Greenland is virtually a bowl with subglacial lakes and channels. This melt water is produced due to Iceland’s magma chamber extending beneath the interior of Greenland. The NSIDC’s surveys also identified that at the bottoms of these two glaciers there are gravel beds cut through rock during the Ice Ages when the ice was thicker and the greater weight ground down the walls and bottom. These gravel beds are flow passages which connect to the ocean waters at and below sea level. The mass of ice on the interior has already displaced its equivalent mass (Archimedes Principal). For all intents and purposes the ice sheets of Greenland’s interior behave much as free-floating sea ice.

Antarctica is also very seismic and steam builds the ice sheets from below plus provides melt water to lubricate the movement of the ice sheets. Antarctic researchers have identified that East Antarctica pulses up and down due to seismic movement, effectively pumping "rivers of ice” through the mountain passes of the Transantarctic Mountain Range. The ice produced from seismic/ geothermal sources builds the ice sheets to calve off the Ross Ice Shelf. The Thwaites glacier is melting from below due to geothermal heat (Univ. of Texas-Austin). The bottoms of the Bentley Subglacial trench and Byrd trench are described as "magma blowtorches” (Washington Univ. St.Louis).

As the ice sheets calve off of West Antarctica, the continuous strong circumpolar winds pin the icebergs against the Antarctic Peninsula and they stack up into ice hummocks.

The Death of Social Security

Diane M. Kimura

SS is scheduled to run out of fund in 2035 so why is Biden planning to pay benefits to refugees from Ukraine?

Biden Signed H.R. 7691 Qualifying Refugees From Ukraine SS benefits.

According to the text of H.R. 7691, the key eligibility requirements for Ukrainian parolees to receive benefits under this Act are:

1. They must be a citizen or national of Ukraine, or a person who last habitually resided in Ukraine.[1]

2. They must have been paroled into the United States between February 24, 2022 and September 30, 2023, OR paroled after September 30, 2023 if they are:
a) The spouse or child of someone paroled between Feb 24, 2022 - Sept 30, 2023, OR
b) The parent, legal guardian, or primary caregiver of an unaccompanied Ukrainian child paroled between Feb 24, 2022 - Sept 30, 2023.[1][3]

3. Their parole status must not have been terminated by the Department of Homeland Security.[1][3]

4. They must meet all other program eligibility requirements, such as income, resources, age, disability status, etc. for the specific benefit programs.[3]

The Act specifically allows these paroled Ukrainians to receive resettlement assistance, entitlement programs, and other refugee benefits, as well as services for unaccompanied children, without having their sponsor's income and resources counted against them.[1][3]

Biden to Suspend Aid to israel

Timothy Birdnow

So Biden is suspending  military aid to Israel for the IDF going into Rafah.

U.S. Pauses Bomb Shipment to Israel In Protest Over Rafah Operation

Here Biden shows his true colors. He's wanted Israel to loseall along.

I hope American Jews remember this come November. Who had Israel's back? Not Joe Biden.

Isn't withholding foreign aidwhat the Democrats impeached Trump over? This aid was already earmarked for Israel.

Long Suffering

Chester McAteer

CHANGE IS DIFFICULT BECAUSE PEOPLE ENDURE SUFFERING RATHER THAN FACE THE UNCERTAINTIES THAT CHANGE BRINGS

The fundamental aspect of human behavior and societal dynamics, highlights the tendency of people to endure suffering and injustice rather than risk the uncertainty and disruption of challenging established systems or institutions.

Throughout history, individuals and societies have often found themselves subjected to various forms of oppression, inequality, and injustice. Despite the inherent desire for freedom and justice, many people choose to tolerate these hardships rather than take action to address them. This phenomenon can be attributed to a variety of factors, including fear of reprisal, inertia, complacency, and a belief in the stability or inevitability of the status quo.

Thus, people are inclined to accept and adapt to their circumstances, even when those circumstances are unfavorable or oppressive. This inclination towards endurance may stem from a sense of resignation, a lack of awareness of alternative options, or a belief that change is either impossible or too costly to pursue.

Furthermore, the implication is that there is a threshold beyond which suffering becomes intolerable, prompting individuals or groups to finally take action to challenge the existing order. This threshold may be reached through a culmination of grievances, a catalyzing event, or a shift in public consciousness.

These facts serve as a reminder of the complexities of human behavior and the challenges inherent in effecting meaningful change. It suggests that the inertia of established norms and systems can be a formidable obstacle to progress, requiring significant effort, courage, and collective action to overcome.

RIP the American Dream

Diane M. Kimura

The cost of buying a home in the US rises to $2,750/month, the second highest ever recorded, according to Reventure.

Prior to the pandemic in 2022, the average home in the US would cost $1,400/month.

In other words, it is now 100% MORE expensive to buy a home in 2024 compared to 2020.

Even at the peak of the 2008 Financial Crisis, the average home payment peaked at $1,550/month.

The average US family would need to spend 44% of their PRE-TAX income to buy a home today.

What do new homebuyers do now?

The Comiong Bidenomics

Sandy Jane Wong

Biden's plan will cost an arm and a leg.
Trump’s tax cuts expire in 2025, Biden says they will stay expired which will raise everyone’s taxes in 2026. Furthermore, Social Security and Medicare are headed toward depletion, and without a fix from Congress, retirees will see steep payment cuts of 21% in less than a decade.
A single person making $75,000 per year will be billed more than $1,700 more than they paid in 2025.

* A married couple with two children making $165,000 annually would pay $2,450.50 more than in the previous year.
* A family with three kids pulling in $200,000 per year will shell out almost $7,500 more per year.

In March, the GOP House Ways and Means committee said, "President Biden’s $7 trillion tax increase on small businesses and families means fewer jobs and higher prices.”

The Lying Media

Andrew Gray

The media only reports what helps the cause.

Why Stormy Daniels is not being tried for extortion is another story missings from the mainstream news media.

Then there is the assassination attempt by Ukraine State Security Services to assassinate Zelenskyy, Budanov and Malyuk, which of course they will say was Russian involved or something.

Then there is Xi Jinping in Serbia, remembering the US bombing of the Chinese Embassy and deaths of "diplomats ". So much goes unreported.

Paying Doctors to Vax

Diane Kimura

Not all vaccines cause harm but too many MDs push COVID vaccines, tests, and procedures for financial gain or to keep their jobs.

Now, after we were bullied, deplatformed, attacked, and censored if we dared to question the safety of the vaccines, this week, we have the formal withdrawal of the AstraZeneca vaccine from circulation but also with the many many many innocent people who suffered adverse reactions, life long conditions or died as a result of taking the shot. Pfizer now admits to blood clotting and myocarditis and 2.8% of the hundreds of millions of people is a a significant number of injuries and deaths.

Blue Cross Blue Shield pays your doctor a $40,000 bonus for fully vaccinating 100 patients under the age of 2.

If your doctor manages to fully vaccinate 200 patients, it jumps to $80,000.

But here’s the catch: Under BCBS’s rules, pediatricians LOSE THE WHOLE BONUS unless at least 63% of patients are fully vaccinated. This includes the flu vaccine. So it’s not just $400 on your child’s head -it could be the whole bonus.”

Those aggressive well-baby visits make a little more sense now don’t they?

Patients had zero informed consent.

The worse thing was how the medical operators were incentivized with bonuses paid by big pharma to get as many people vaccinated and boosted. Blue Cross Blue Shield internally distributed a schedule of increasing bonuses tied to the rate of vaccinations.

This placed the MD’s and the medical community at direct odds with patient care.

My former MD left the US to practice in NZ because of the push for financial incentives like this and the ordering of unnecessary tests/procedures to improve the profitability for the hospital and clinics.

I asked my current MD directly there were any financial incentives tied to my getting vaccinated and I have yet to receive a response.

Little Lams Eat Ivy, a Kim will Eat Ivy Too...

Timothy Birdnow

Where's Kim?

Missouri auditors having been hunting for former St. Louis Prosecuting Attorney Kim Gardner,and claim she is willfully hiding from them and their questions about how she ran her office when she headed up the city's prosecuting attorney's division.

Kim Gardner was the embarassingly stupid and biased Soros-funded black city prosecutor who made her fame by pursuing Missouri Governor Eric Greitens and forcing him to resign.Gardner broke numberous laws and ethics rules in her quest to take out Greitens. (Sadly the Missouri GOP hated the former Democrat Greitens and were happy to let him twist in the wind.) She notoriously hired private investigators to avoid government oversight in the case, and suppressed evidence, and tampered with witnesses in the case.

Gardner was a terrible prosecutor too, refusing to even file charges in cases involving black perpetrators. She also was involved with creative accounting in her office, often not showing up for work and attending college for a nursing degree while being paid to work as a prosecutor.

She resigned before going to trial for malfeasance and the state of Missouri did not pursue charges against her to avoid a political backlash.

So now the state auditor wants her to testify and she is on the lam.
