The poster is in response to the fake “don’t say gay” campaign over a Florida law that bans grooming very young children in schools, and does not, in fact, say “gay” at all.  As it turns out, the message of the poster is as fake as those attacking the Florida law.

The Big Apple mom who crashed Mayor Eric Adams’ press conference Monday to blast him over his tot mask mandate was fired shortly afterward from her job at the city Law Department, The Post has learned.

Daniela Jampel, who served as an assistant corporation counsel, learned she was canned less than an hour after she confronted a caught-off-guard and apparently annoyed Adams over when he would ‘unmask our toddlers.’

Jampel had publicly challenged the mayor at an unrelated event on LGBTQ issues — as Adams stood in front of a podium banner that read, ‘Come to the city where you can say whatever you want.’

Maybe I’m being too literal.  You can say whatever you want in the new, improved NYC.  You’ll just lose the ability to feed your family if you do.

Bernaert (R)

No, the groomers absolutely don’t want to groom your children.  They just want to tell them all about their deviant, confused sex lives.  See the difference?

A Florida teacher shared anxieties with MSNBC Tuesday that he won’t be able to talk about his love life with his kindergarten students anymore due to HB 1557.

Kindergarten teacher Cory Bernaert reacted Tuesday to news that Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis had signed legislation banning classroom discussions of sexual orientation and gender identity for Kindergarten through 3rd grade (ages 5-9).

‘It hits hard in my heart professionally and personally,’ he said. ‘Professionally it truly makes me feel like I am not trusted as a professional. I know my kindergarten standards through and through and nowhere in our curriculum does it have anything about teaching sexual orientation or sexual identity.’

‘We should be able to have discussions and that’s what we’re encouraged to do in kindergarten,’ he said. ‘My kids do have questions. They want to know who my partner is in pictures outside of my classroom, and I should be able to speak to them.’

So let me see if I understand this: Bernaert admits state standards don’t allow what he wants to do, but he wants to use kids who can’t yet write or read to be his deviant sexuality psychologists.  Professional?  But he’s no groomer, no sir!

America has two primary foundational documents: the Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution.  Here’s part of the Declaration:

We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness…

In written questions to Katanji Brown-Jackson, Senator Ted Cruz asked:

‘Please explain, in your own words, the theory prevalent among members of the Founding Fathers’ generation that humans possess Natural Rights that are inherent or inalienable,’ one question asked the nominee.

‘The theory that humans possess inherent or inalienable rights is reflected in the Declaration of Independence, which states: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness,’ she responded merely reciting the founding document, not answering in her own words as directed.

Next up, was Cruz’s query, ‘Do you hold a position on whether individuals possess Natural Rights, yes or no?’

Brown Jackson tellingly responded, ‘I do not hold a position on whether individuals possess Natural Rights.’

A federal judge has never thought about the natural rights underlying our republic.  She has no position on such a fundamental legal, social question.  Do we now have another stupid person on the Supreme Court, a liar, or both?  Extra credit for writing your answer within the provided box.  And speaking of stupid:

High gas prices and runaway price inflation more broadly are top-of-mind for many Americans right now.

As a result, progressive politicians are feeling the squeeze to explain why the federal government’s money printing and deficit spending aren’t to blame. And if Bernie Sanders’ latest radical proposal is anything to go by, some of them are getting pretty desperate.

The Vermont senator just unveiled a proposal for a 95 percent tax—yes, 95 percent!—on business profits above their pre-pandemic levels. This comes as part of his larger attempt to blame corporate greed and ‘price-gouging’ for inflation.

Gee, I dunno, but it seems to me this would cause businesses to quit doing business, which might be kind of harmful to the economy and all…  It’s gotta be those domestic terrorist, white supremacists again:

 The New York Police Department is searching for a suspect seen on camera painting a swastika on a support beam within a Staten Island parking garage.

‘The New York City Police Department is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the individual … in connection to an aggravated harassment incident,’ the NYPD said in a statement to Fox News Digital.  

The NYPD has released footage of the scene showing a group of men in the garage. One of the men, who appears to be wearing a red sweatshirt, drew the swastika before continuing to stand with the group of other men. The NYPD declined to provide a description of the suspect when Fox News Digital reached out.

Golly.  I wonder why they “declined to provide a description of the suspect”?

Oh.  And in Kamala Harris world:

And despite some of Harris’ sit-down interviews causing a kerfuffle in the past (see: her chat last year with NBC’s LESTER HOLT, where her comments about visiting the border provided fodder for weeks of coverage), her team feels that over the last few months, she’s really hit a stride in interviews: get some moments that are memorable, but don’t cause days of dissection.

Uh-huh.  A stride like this?

Or maybe like this?

Or how about this?

I dunno.  All of this sounds more like rhetorical face planting than striding.  And in the “great strides in effective government” department for this article:

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on Thursday became the first federal agency to fly the ‘trans pride flag,’ Axios reported.

HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra tweeted a photo of the ‘trans pride flag’ outside the Hubert Humphrey building on Thursday morning, accompanied by a statement of support for the transgender activist agenda.

At least they didn’t fly it above the American flag, though the temptation must have been almost overpowering.  This one was the runner-up:

The State Department will offer Americans seeking a passport to use an ‘X’ gender marker that is defined as ‘unspecified or another gender identity,’ Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced on Thursday.

The State Department announced last June that passport applications would be allowed to select their gender as ‘M’ or ‘F’ without having to provide medical certification if that gender did not match their other documentation, which was the previous policy.

‘Starting on April 11, U.S. citizens will be able to select an X as their gender marker on their U.S. passport application, and the option will become available for other forms of documentation next year,’ Blinken said in a statement.

I suspect sane countries will not be impressed.  They’re kind of particular about who they admit to their countries and in terms of identifying people, they’re kind of hung up on the whole male/female thing, foolishly thinking that’s an essential element of establishing individual identity.

This was the second runner up:

The Biden administration’s proposed $7.5 billion 2023 budget contains a provision to put the ‘first woman and person of color on the Moon.’ Under the section to fund NASA, the provision is to enhance ‘US Human Spaceflight Leadership,’ and the plan is for this monumental event to happen by 2025, just about three years from now.

It isn’t just in space flight that the Biden administration seeks to embed concepts of diversity, equity and inclusion, but across the entire budget. The preamble for the budget includes numerous references to expanding equity through funding across all federal agencies, and the budget itself uses the word equity 158 times in its 158 pages.

What if she doesn’t want to go to the moon, and does she get to come back, or is the “historic achievement” of putting her there enough?  And does she have to be, you know, like an astronaut or scientist or something, or is being black and a woman—whatever that is—enough?  Could we save time and money by sending Brown-Jackson?  Anyway, I won’t be satisfied until we put a trans lesbian Hispanic groomer pedophile something or other on Mars. How can we hold up our heads as a nation if we let China or Russia beat us in such a historic first? Yeah, and what about this?

Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget President Maya MacGuineas argued on “Mornings with Maria,” Tuesday that Biden’s $5.8 trillion budget proposal is a ‘divorce from reality’ and isn’t a ‘real plan’ to achieve deficit reduction.

What the…?!  Oh, sorry.  I accidently let some sanity slip in.  Back to the stupid:

President Joe Biden delivered another speech about his attempt to reduce the high cost of gas, as prices continue to rise despite his promise to ‘work like to the devil’ to bring them down.

Biden urged oil companies to start producing more oil, threatening to punish them if they do not respond.

But Biden did not offer any proposals to reduce the regulatory and environmental burdens that oil companies face, which only increase the cost of oil or gas. He also did not announce a plan to fast track or speed up new leases after spending his presidency trying to ban oil leases on federal land altogether.

Instead, the president said, he would ‘double down’ on his clean energy agenda to ‘speed the transition to a clean energy future.’

Let’s see: we use at least 8 billion barrels a day, and the stuff in the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, which is intended for things like all out war, is not gasoline, but other than that, it’s a brilliant plan.  Considering Biden’s handlers and the movers and shakers of the D/S/C party won’t allow the mining necessary to “speed the transition to a clean energy future,” doubling down is double stupid.   No, make that triple stupid:

Biden, lost in the White House…

President Biden made a renewed push on Monday to galvanize congressional Democrats to overhaul the nation’s tax code and dramatically raise rates on corporations and ultra-wealthy Americans.

The president laid out the tax hikes as part of his $5.8 trillion budget blueprint for federal spending in fiscal 2023, which begins in October. Under his proposal, taxes would rise by $2.5 trillion, marking the largest increase in history in dollar terms. The deficit would be $1.15 trillion.

With inflation at historic highs, we absolutely have to raise taxes.  Take this link to a classic Bill Whittle video about the lunacy of trying to tax the rich to oblivion.  It’s from 2011, but multiply the numbers a bit and it applies perfectly to today.  Oh, and it was never Democrats who wanted to defund the police, no sir:

Joe Biden will propose $32 billion in spending on law enforcement in his budget, to prove that the Democrat’s flirtation with the “Defund the Police” movement is over.

Will the voters believe him and the other Democrats who are trying to evade responsibility for enabling the ‘Defund the Police’ movement, which not only made America’s cities far less safe but endangered the lives of police officers?

Will voters believe Joe and the other D/S/Cs?  Nah, not even most D/S/Cs.

The expanded discretionary spending would increase resources for federal prosecutors and give additional resources to state and local law enforcement to put more police on the beat.

It would more than double the funding for community policing through the COPS Hiring Program. It also would add $500 million for so-called community violence interventions — a tenfold increase.

Keep in mind “community violence interventions” aren’t cops, but idiots trying to keep gang bangers from killing them and others while requiring cops to protect them.

It would pay for nearly 300 new deputy marshals and related personnel.

It would pay for 140 Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) agents and investigators working on gun-trafficking strike forces in five major U.S. cities; and 160 ATF investigators working on gun-dealer compliance.

It would significantly increase funds for law enforcement agencies to trace firearms found at crime scenes.

I’ll be writing about tracing guns at crimes scenes in the near future.  It’s a fraud.  Oh, and “gun dealer compliance” and the rest is designed to run gun dealers out of business, thus disarming Americans.  Uh, what “success?”

This is cute:

After a 261 day break, NBC on Wednesday remembered that Hunter Biden existed and actually uttered his name. But, of course, don’t think the network has changed. Today reporter Garrett Haake, in his brief mention, insisted that the President’s son is proclaiming ‘no wrongdoing.’ Additionally, Haake made no mention of the fact that The New York Times on March 16 conceded that Hunter Biden’s laptop was real.

After noting that Donald Trump is again talking about the President’s son and his sketchy business dealings in Ukraine, the journalist played clean up: ‘Now, the Department of Justice is investigating Hunter Biden but he’s maintained there’s been absolutely no wrongdoing in his business deals.’

I’m sure Hunter is entirely innocent, and have I mentioned I’m a Nigerian prince in exile, and if you give me your bank account numbers, I’ll deposit millions for safekeeping and give you half?  Do you remember, gentle readers, how climate change and diversity, equity and inclusion are the number one priority of every agency of government?  Like the SEC:

The Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) remit includes ensuring candor, honesty and transparency in what public companies tell investors. Yet it will spend the next few weeks and months trying to fool us into believing that its new 510-page proposal on mandatory climate disclosure is solely about protecting investors and has nothing to do with climate policy or achieving net zero emissions by 2050.

No one should be fooled.

Materiality is the governing principle of corporate disclosure requirements. In 2010, the SEC issued 29 pages of guidance on climate-change disclosures. With respect to what is now called climate-transition risk, the guidance requires that companies ‘should consider specific risks they may face as a result of climate change legislation or regulations and avoid generic risk factor disclosure that could apply to any company.’

Oh, I’m sure this has nothing to do with climate change, because the SEC says so. And speaking of medicine:

But you can say anything you want in NYC.  Boy, they’re really focusing on science in medical education these days:

And speaking of science and medicine:

Chief White House medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci said during a televised interview with the BBC this week that he doesn’t believe it can be known if the COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions were worth the unintended costs to people.

‘I don’t think we’re ever going to be able to determine what the right balance is,’ Fauci said during an interview on the BBC’s Sunday Morning television broadcast. ‘I think the restrictions, if you want to use that word, which I tend to shy away from, lockdowns, certainly prevented a lot of infections, prevented a lot of hospitalizations, and prevented a lot of deaths. There’s no doubt about that.’

Apparently Fauci hasn’t been paying attention to the studies that reveal the lockdowns did far more harm than good, but he’s the embodiment of science, so we’d better listen to himHere’s some more science:

President Biden’s administration has released a series of documents encouraging gender-reassignment surgery and hormone treatments for minors.

The Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Population Affairs released a document Thursday titled ‘Gender Affirming Care and Young People.’ The same day, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s National Child Traumatic Stress Network – another subset of the HHS – released a parallel document titled, ‘Gender-Affirming Care Is Trauma-Informed Care.’

The HHS documents describe what it calls appropriate treatments for transgender adolescents, including: ‘Top’ surgery – to create male-typical chest shape or enhance breasts;’ and ‘Bottom’ surgery – surgery on genitals or reproductive organs, facial feminization or other procedures.’

Ah!  So we “affirm” kids by castrating them and cutting off their breasts.  That would certainly be “trauma-informed,” immediately and for years thereafter.  I’m so old I remember when we used to call that child abuse and even arrest people for doing it.  Let’s visit the extraordinarily arrogant and dimwitted Secretary of Energy:

On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s ‘All In,’ Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm stated that many hoped “we would be focusing solely on clean energy solutions, renewable, making that transition,” but the war in Ukraine has thrown a wrench into that and said that ‘we have got to use this reason to become energy independent with clean energy.’

Oh sure!  War is a perfect reason to destroy the economy and return us to a pre-industrial way of living.  Can’t let a crisis go to waste!  More Joe:

Hmmm.  Maybe he’s a prophet?

Having been in the military, I can tell you 98% of those sailors are wondering: “what the hell is wrong with that guy, why are her pants so short and what’s with the pink garbage bag she’s wearing?”  And speaking of kneeling:

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) on Thursday announced plans to kneel to the left’s radical transgender movement, adopting ‘gender neutral’ screening at its checkpoints to better suit transgender, nonbinary, and ‘gender-nonconforming’ passengers.

The TSA announced that it is moving beyond the ‘gender-based AIT [Advanced Imaging Technology] system’ at airport checkpoints, using what it describes as ‘more accurate technology’ which it claims will ‘advance civil rights.’ As a result of this new process, TSA will essentially begin reducing the number of pat-down screenings to accommodate those who refuse to identify as one of the two only valid biological sexes. Specifically, ‘Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for Transportation Security Officers (TSOs)’ will ‘permit less invasive screening procedures for certain passengers who trigger the AIT scanner in a sensitive area.’

Now we’re going to have a rush of “gender non-conforming” terrorists with triggered sensitive areas.  I provided that one just in case you ever thought the TSA was an actual, serious agency dedicated to airline security.  But at least we can depend on the military:

The Army this week admitted it was having problems recruiting and announced an unprecedented reduction in its numbers that would shrink the active duty Army to its smallest size since World War II.

‘We’re facing, obviously, some challenging conditions in terms of our ability to recruit and attract talent,’ Under Secretary of the Army Gabe Camarillo said at a press conference on Monday.

Oh.  Guess not.  So they’re fixing the problem by throwing soldiers out for refusing to be vaccinated.  This is classic:

I guess “duck and cover” is out.  This is beyond stupid:

Yes, they’re giving illegals smart phones, supposedly so they can “keep track” of them, and so they can call the government for a hearing about getting deported.  But wait a minute: our government doesn’t want to deport anybody and has no real idea who any of them are, so why would they want to keep track of them, or expect them to call?  This is perfect:

WaPo’s Jennifer Rubin said in exasperation of Biden’s bad luck: ‘If it weren’t for inflation, this president’s economic performance would be unmatched.’

Other than that, how did you like the play, Mrs. Lincoln?

Too stupid to survive.
