·        It may be time for some Jimmy Carter “Miss Me, Yet” memes. AS Steven Hayward says, I Can’t Believe I Miss Jimmy Carter. Rick Perry, former Texas governor, put it this way, “President Joe Biden has accomplished in just 14 months what many though was impossible – surpassing President Jimmy Carter as the most incompetent steward of the American economy.”  

·        Racism At The New York Times.

When are the races of perpetrators and victims of crimes relevant? The Times standard is obvious: they are relevant if it makes whites look bad, but irrelevant if it makes blacks look bad. (Asians don’t figure, and anyway, they are nearly always victims.) In fact, when violent crimes involve blacks and whites, the black is the perpetrator and the white the victim in something like 80% to 85% of cases. I assume that most people know this through observation and experience, but maybe not. Maybe decades of misleading reporting by biased outlets like the New York Times have skewed perceptions of reality.

·        Inspirational Thoughts. You’re never too old.

·        Progressives Have Fallen in Love With Black Victimhood. They’re not progressives as they euphemistically call themselves. They are batshit crazy uber liberals. When black people are polled, racism doesn’t even register. Violence and Crime is the number one issue by a wide margin.

·        Stephen Miller has a good take on the implosion of CNN+.

CNN+ and its historic collapse after a $300 million launch is indeed reflective of the CNN roster of talent. CNN+ gave programs to network names like Brian Stelter, Jake Tapper and Don Lemon. All of these hosts (and others) have enough trouble drawing an audience on regular cable broadcasting, let alone streaming.

·        You may remember “The Great Barrington Declaration, a voice of sanity, and therefore a target of the public health authorities.” Nick Gillespie sat down for an interview with one of the co-authors, Stanford’s Dr. Jay Bhattacharya. Long interview but full of interesting information. It is a textbook example of how the establishment circles the wagons and attacks anyone who doesn’t fall into like with their narrative. The results of the government’s response has been horrific.

·        Looking for that perfect gift?

·        Looks like Exxon has learned a good lesson from watching Disney’s problems with being woke. Disney has lost $41 billion in shareholder value, so far. Exxon has banned any flag flying outside their corporate HQ other than the official corporate flag. Liberal heads are spinning and woke employees are upset. Good. Maybe they can find jogs at Ben and Jerry’s.   

·        Woke Capitalism In Retreat? We certainly hope so.

·        Loose Ends from Powerline.
