So, today Pudding Brain announced that there is no federal solution to Covid. The guy who ran on shutting down the virus has given up.
Of course, it never could be shut down – the idea that if we stayed home and then masked up when we went out we’d eventually eliminate the virus was drivel. And every doctor knew it was drivel. It was all an op to get the Bad Orange Man out. That plus cheating which would make Stalin blush did the trick.

Desmond Tutu died a few days ago – one of the lesser known things about him was that he held rabidly anti-Semitic opinions. This is actually no surprise at all – such views have been common on the Left for a long while. The tragedy of South Africa was always Apartheid – by setting up that hideous system, the white people of South Africa allowed anyone who would stand against it to be cloaked in impervious moral armor…no matter how otherwise nasty they were. I was surprised that Mandela emerged from prison with a greatness of heart…that he voluntarily relinquished power is very rare in African history. But his movement was chock full of very wicked people who were given a complete pass because they stood against an injustice. The lesson to be learned here is that just because someone is opposed to one sort of evil doesn’t mean they are good guys.
CNN is a dying network – and I don’t think the bosses know what to do about it. It could be they don’t want to do anything about it. The cure for what ails CNN isn’t to become another Fox, but it must become what it isn’t: a news organization. Through the Trump years, lying on behalf of the Democrats kept things afloat a bit. Fox still routinely beat CNN in the ratings. But that lying on behalf of Democrats also alienated all non-Democrats who used to watch…and as far as being liberal lunatics goes, MSNBC simply does a better job of it. If CNN were to change itself into a place of hard, factual news, it would gain a fiercely loyal audience. But to do this, they would have to tell the truth…and I don’t think the people there are capable of doing that.
The US government chartered flights over Christmas to move illegals around the country – basically seeding them in areas far from the border where it is far less likely that any agency concerned will bother with them. This is, of course, simple lawlessness on the part of the government. Hard as it will be, we must make a commitment to deport every illegal who arrived after January 20th, 2021. Sure, the rest of them as well – but those who came after that date must be made an example of: we must instruct the world that just because we get an idiotic President it doesn’t mean you’ll get away with it.
