The Biden DOJ Does Not Care If Democratic Governors Were Negligent in COVID Nursing Home Deaths
Matt Vespa / Townhall Tipsheet
 
Again, it must be nice to be a Democrat. You can lie, cheat, steal, and commit negligent homicide and get away with it. You have the liberal media that will suffocate any bad story about you with a pillow. There are two separate sets of rules. When it comes to COVID nursing home deaths, there’s no exception. The Department of Justice recently announced they won’t be investigating whether protocols passed by Democratic governors which forced nursing homes to admit COVID-positive patients violated federal law. Yet, there’s no doubt this contributed to the spread of the virus and the death toll. These areas house the nation’s most vulnerable population, the ones most susceptible to dying from infection. That’s a fact. There are thousands of body bags you can point to as evidence, along with countless grieving families. COVID thrives in these facilities since they’re also not well-ventilated.

'Their hands are tied': San Francisco locals demand change to stop brazen crime
'We have to enforce the current laws we have," San Francisco Police Officer Robert Rueca told Fox News.
 
San Francisco local businesses and employees are calling for change as they describe increasingly brazen shoplifting and car break-ins

Many residents told Fox News they believe changing California law Proposition 47 is the solution.

"The police are actually wonderful, their hands are tied, that’s what’s going on out here." Gianni, a local who works in Fisherman’s Wharf, told Fox News.

San Francisco Police Department's Public Information Officer, Robert Rueca explained "There’s a threshold of 950 dollars that needs to be met in order for a misdemeanor to turn into a felony when it comes to theft."

"We have to enforce the current laws we have," Rueca added.

Mario Ruiz, a San Francisco employee near Union Square, felt because of this law "there’s no penalty to shoplift."

Progressive ice cream company Ben & Jerry’s is being criticized from both sides of the political aisle after announcing Monday it would no longer sell its ice cream in “occupied Palestinian territory.”

In response, Texas is considering whether to ban the ice cream company in the state.

Texas State Comptroller Glenn Hegar said in a statement that he has directed his staff to determine whether Ben & Jerry’s, or its parent company Unilever, have done anything to trigger getting listed under Chapter 808 of the state’s government code. 

If it is determined that Ben & Jerry’s or Unilever has engaged in any activities proscribed under Chapter 808, my office will take all appropriate and required actions. Texas Government Code Chapter 808 defines "boycott Israel" as "refusing to deal with, terminating business activities with, or otherwise taking any action that is intended to penalize, inflict economic harm on or limit commercial relations specifically with Israel or with a person or entity doing business in Israel or an Israeli-controlled territory."

'Bloodied' Little Havana demonstrator slams Biden: 'Cubans don't want vaccines, they want freedom'
Miami Beach Rep. Maria Elvira Salazar said Biden has refused multiple meeting requests.

A Little Havana, Fla., demonstrator covered in theatrical blood; gagged, handcuffed and chained told "Hannity" on Wednesday that his attire is a euphemism for the plight of the Cuban people who have suffered under 62 years of dictatorship – as well as a cry for help to a president he said seems uninterested in supporting Cuban civilians' rights.

The man, who did not give his name, spoke through "Freedom"-embossed duct tape.

"These chains represent the dictatorship in Cuba. This blood represents the blood that is going to be on the hands of those who stand next to the dictatorship – and not next to the Cuban people," he said.

"Joe Biden, Cuba wants freedom," he said, addressing the president. "They need freedom. They don’t want vaccines, they don't want food, they need freedom: That’s what the Cuban people deserve, and that’s what they want."

Dem Pollster Circles Another Issue Biden Cannot Ignore Unless He Wants a Political Disaster
Matt Vespa / Townhall Tipsheet

Dem Pollster Circles Another Issue Biden Cannot Ignore Unless He Wants a Political Disaster
You’ve heard about this issue for weeks now. It’s not just a little thing. It won’t go away. It must be dealt with as past presidencies have done. Some successfully, others not so much. Some correctly call it a tax increase, and it’s being felt by everyone right now. It’s inflation. It’s bound to plague us for many more months as well. Not good for a president whose party is barely clinging onto their majorities in the House and Senate. Now, Democratic pollsters are warning that political disaster awaits if it’s not dealt with seriously. Also, women voters will be the first to notice (via Axios):

Celinda Lake, who polled for the Biden presidential campaign and still advises Team Biden, told Axios that worries about inflation are coming through loud and clear in both public polls and her own focus groups.

"Women voters are really experiencing it, because they're always more focused on kitchen table economics, microeconomics," Lake said.

Russia unveils new 'Checkmate' stealth fighter jet at air show
The Kremlin has made modernization of the country’s arsenals a key priority amid tensions with the West that followed Moscow’s 2014 annexation of Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula
 
Russian President Vladimir Putin inspected the country’s newly unveiled "Checkmate" warplane on Tuesday.

The prototype of the Sukhoi fifth-generation stealth fighter was revealed at the MAKS-2021 International Aviation and Space Salon, Reuters reported. The show opened Tuesday in Zhukovsky, outside Moscow.

Fifth-generation refers to the jet’s stealth characteristics, a capability to cruise at supersonic speed as well as artificial intelligence to assist the pilots, among other advanced features.

"What we saw in Zhukovsky today demonstrates that the Russian aviation has a big potential for development and our aircraft making industries continue to create new competitive aircraft designs," Putin said in a speech at the show.

The jet was designed to reduce service costs. "Our aim is to make the cost per flight hour as low as possible, to make it economical not only to buy but also to operate," Yury Slyusar, Russia’s United Aircraft Corporation head, said, according to Reuters.

Rand Paul Seeks DOJ Criminal Referral to Hold That Lying Sack Fauci Accountable

Rand Paul Seeks DOJ Criminal Referral to Hold That Lying Sack Fauci Accountable

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has had enough of Anthony Fauci’s antics. He’s done. A large portion of the country agrees as well. The man cannot decide…on anything. The number of flip-flops is many. He’s been wrong about almost everything about COVID. He’s been caught engaging in political theater after he was vaccinated. Remember when he still wore a mask? Yeah, he admitted it wasn’t necessary post-vaccination. In his emails, he admits the store-bought masks don’t curb the spread of COVID but peddled mask mania regardless. And he might have committed a felony for lying before Congress. There’s something more to these grants that were given to the Wuhan Institute of Virology. 

Fauci hates talking about it. He gets visibly irritated when asked about what the money was used for over there. Was it for gain-of-function research? Every day we learn more and the conclusion that this escaped from a lab becomes clearer. Katie wrote about the exchange Fauci and Paul had yesterday. It was quite testy:

Cuba's Fight For Freedom
By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots / Right Side Patriots Radio

"Are you going to report on this so the world can hear their voices?”
 - Florida Senator Marco Rubio (R)

Cuba...a mere 90 miles from the U.S. yet for all practical purposes it's a world away...a world where freedom is non-existent and where communism reigns supreme. Cuba...a nation where “unauthorized public gatherings” are illegal and where actual physical protests are rare and far between. And yet the Cuban people could only be pushed so far as witnessed by the massive protests that recently did and still are taking place not just in Havana but in small towns throughout the island nation....protests to demand an end to the country's communist dictatorship, its socialist based failed economy, and its sixty plus years of repressive “iron fist” rule. And within the protesters calls forLibertad, Basta y Unir”...as in “Freedom, Enough, and Unite”...one can hear voices demanding that Cuba's President Miguel Diaz-Canel step down.

Kevin McCarthy Sends Letter to House Republicans Concerning Inflation
Zach Bauder / Townhall Tipsheet
 
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy sent a letter to House Republicans yesterday addressing inflation. 

McCarthy said that inflation is due to large spending from Democrats, something that is causing everyday Americans to spend more of their paycheck on necessities like food, gas, and insurance. 

"Republicans have sounded the alarm on this and we will continue to hold Democrats to account for their reckless handling of the economy," the statement read.

The statement features the testimonies of people gathered from social media responses.

McCarthy points out that even some Democrats acknowledge the results of Biden's spending. Kim Schrier, a representative from Washington state, said: "We knew that there was a possibility that this could lead to inflation….I know it feels—I feel it."

Op-ed:
Cuba's Fight For Freedom
By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots / Right Side Patriots Radio
 
"Are you going to report on this so the world can hear their voices?”
 - Florida Senator Marco Rubio (R)

Cuba...a mere 90 miles from the U.S. yet for all practical purposes it's a world away...a world where freedom is non-existent and where communism reigns supreme. Cuba...a nation where “unauthorized public gatherings” are illegal and where actual physical protests are rare and far between. And yet the Cuban people could only be pushed so far as witnessed by the massive protests that recently did and still are taking place not just in Havana but in small towns throughout the island nation....protests to demand an end to the country's communist dictatorship, its socialist based failed economy, and its sixty plus years of repressive “iron fist” rule. And within the protesters calls forLibertad, Basta y Unir”...as in “Freedom, Enough, and Unite”...one can hear voices demanding that Cuba's President Miguel Diaz-Canel step down.

And as Cuban-Americans here in South Florida*...Cuban-Americans whom Díaz-Canel claims are “egging” the protesters on...having not only blanketed the streets of Miami's “Little Havana” in a show of support and solidarity for their “brothers and sisters” protesting in Cuba, their sheer numbers alone actually shut down a stretch of South Florida's Palmetto Expressway last Tuesday. And with said solidarity and support for the Cuban people now spreading throughout Florida and across the U.S., it should not come as any surprise that the Cuban regime shut down internet, media, and phone access both into and out of Cuba...with limited access restored three days after the protests began. And really, why wouldn't they shut it all down especially with images on social media sites showing what appears to be Cuban police and special security forces detaining, beating, and pepper-spraying some of the peaceful protesters. In fact, a number of those detained...a number as high as one hundred...have now been reported “missing.” Not good folks...not good at all.
 
 

And while President Miguel Diaz-Canal...actually a Fidel Castro-like dictator...refers to those who are protesting as “mercenaries" in hopes of turning public opinion against them, word is still getting out that the Cuban people are tired, hungry, and outright disgusted at being forced to live without the basic necessities that we in this country and elsewhere take for granted. And with said people already wallowing in the midst of their county's worst economic crisis in decades, food prices continue to soar while food shortages and power outages are becoming more and more commonplace across the whole of Cuba.

So now as new voices continue to be added to the cry for freedom and the return of civil liberties...what should be “truth in reporting” is proving to be anything but. How so... because one of the many narratives being pushed by the Cuban regime as well as by the mainstream media as the reason for the anti-government protests is simply that said protests are being driven by the Cuban people's now growing “awareness” of Covid-19. And as to be expected, it was just a matter of time before Covid would be blamed somehow...Covid coupled with a medicine and vaccine shortage plus a surge in new cases...never mind the government's dismal mishandling of the Covid crisis itself. And another narrative of course places blame on the still in effect U.S. sanctions on Cuba... sanctions which according to Diaz-Canal have directly lead to what he calls a "policy of economic suffocation."

But reality dictates that the Cuban people's struggle for freedom along with the still ongoing humanitarian crisis that has been Cuba's hallmark for generations, is now reaching a boiling point as witnessed by the countering show of force the Cuban police have initiated upon Diaz-Canal's orders. And this includes the police not only being out in visible force on the country's streets, but seeing said police being equipped with Special Forces jeeps that have machine guns mounted on back...seeing the police using pepper spray and arresting dozens of protesters as more and more folks took to the streets...and seeing the police, whose orders were to use “extreme force” if need be against their fellow countryman, actually doing so against those who, for the most part, were peacefully and rightfully demonstrating in the streets.

So here it must be understood that while it's unfortunate, the using of “extreme force” is indeed standard operating procedure in communist and socialist ruled countries like Cuba, countries where the masses are brainwashed into believing that an insulated and well protected leader...a leader actually forced upon the people...is the best judge of what the masses want, need, and require, with party loyal bureaucrats somewhat but not totally exempt from what is now hard-line totalitarian rule. And with said government making all the decisions as to what will or will not constitute the economic make up of its citizens lives, individual choice and the right to “free will” becomes nonexistent as equality for the so-called “greater good” becomes the rule of law and anything but order. Personal ambition is not allowed nor is motivation to better oneself given, which in time naturally tends to lead to a country's “economic suffocation.”

And so the economic crisis now engulfing Cuba is indeed a form of “economic suffocation.”

But like with all economic crisis, Cuba's leaders do not blame themselves or their repressive and mismanaged government policies for their economic woes, but instead place blame directly on the aforementioned U.S. sanctions and on a pandemic that has caused Cuba's tourism industry to basically shut down. And for a country dependent on tourist revenues as the means by which to purchase the majority of its foodstuffs, its fuel, as well other key imports critical to meet both agricultural and manufacturing needs, this is especially hard. And while Prime Minister Manuel Marrero-Cruz recently announced that “travelers” coming into Cuba will be able to bring in food, medicine, and other essentials without having to pay import duties, know this is a joke at best for not only is travel into Cuba almost non-existent right now, but his much heralded announcement is only a temporary measure...a temporary measure deemed “too little, too late” by the protesters and government critics alike.

So when “economic suffocation” does take hold of a country, as it has in Cuba, it not only affects the populace but how that country's government actually runs. Remember, without much needed ambition and motivation by which to sustain what is a socialist economy, reality again steps in to dictate that what was once hoped for economic equality for all becomes but economic equality at the bottom rung of the socio-economic ladder. And it's this continued dwelling at the bottom rung which has now led the Cuban people to say “enough is enough” after six long decades of seeing their once great nation...a nation formally known as the “Jewel of the Caribbean” and "The Land of Romance"...being run not only with an “iron fist” but with it deliberately being run into the ground by a corrupt group of government bandits who, while the people suffer, continue to live high off the proverbial hog.

Cuba will see 'horrific bloodbath' if Biden does not take action.”
- Senator Marco Rubio's truthful and foreboding words to Joe Biden regarding pressuring the Cuban regime to stop retaliating against the protesters.

And so now here in the U.S. the game of politics begins, the very same game of politics that saw Obama turning his back on the protesters who tried to break free from the mullahs rule in Iran. And like with Obama, Biden and his administration love to tout the use of diplomacy as the be all, end all to any international problem that might arise. And with the U.N. obviously being no friend of the U.S., and with the current Cuban situation falling under the auspices of said U.N., know that Biden's form of complacent diplomacy at best will in no way be strong enough to address the Cuban people's woes let alone be strong enough to pressure or at least shame the international community into condemning and isolating a communist regime that resides a mere 90 miles from our Florida shores.

But then again what do you expect from a president who would be contradicting his own party's agenda if he were to take real action in support of the Cuban protesters...a president whose very own State Department continues to claim that the “right to peaceful assembly” is being observed in Cuba no matter that even they know that the people in Cuba actually have no rights, and that both eye witness accounts and media footage clearly show police, many dressed in plain clothes, beating some of the protesters. And know that they dare not even mention...it's bad PR after all...the now ever growing list of “missing persons”...as in those who were arrested for peacefully assembling suddenly disappearing.

And to make matters even worse, fearful of a mass exodus from Cuba, Biden's Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas warned Cubans that the U.S. Coast Guard has deployed officials to monitor the Florida Straits and that they would “interdict migrants” attempting to flee the island and reach the U.S. “irregularly.” Nice words they are not but words not unexpected for they come from a man whose president and party allows “illegals” to freely enter our country via our southern border. But the truth is that Cubans, for the most part, vote for Republicans and not for Democrats, and that even in a crisis, for Democrats, it's all about how many votes they can garner...said crisis be damned.

So while most Republicans are standing strong with the Cuban people...people daring to protest against both socialism and a communism regime...Democrats, the very folks who watched our cities burn for more than a year without saying a word, give but cursory lip service to the Cuban's quest for freedom. And really, why would Democrats praise the very people who want to rid themselves of exactly what they want to implement here.

And while I write this, we don't know what the final outcome for Cuba or it's people will be...we still don't now if the protests will continue on...we don't know if the regime will forcibly put an end to the dissent and how many will be killed in the process of their doing so...we don't know what the regime will do to the people for some form of punishment will surely follow...and we most certainly don't know how or even if Cuban-Americans will be able to aid those trying to break free of a regime that views freedom as the antithesis of its, and the Democrats, Marxist agenda.

A lot of questions that need to be answered with time alone providing those answers.

And so with that said I wish the Cuban people much success in their endeavour for their fight for freedom is truly just. And to Biden and crew who relish in spewing pretty words without substance, I hope what is now happening in Cuba takes root here in our country as well, for while our fight might be different in origin the fight for freedom from tyranny and unjust rule always remains the same.

Facebook Board Member: Free Speech is 'Not an Absolute Human Right’
Landon Mion / Townhall Tipsheet
 
A Facebook Oversight Board member said that free speech is not “an absolute” right and should be weighed against “other human rights” when determining if content should be censored by the tech giant.

Board member Helle Thorning Schmidt, who is also a former Danish Prime Minister, said Thursday that “free speech is not an absolute human right.”

“It has to be balanced with other human rights,” she said.

The Facebook Oversight Board, which consists of 20 members from around the world, was created last year to help corporate executives to distance themselves from decisions considered to be politically.

The board previously recommended that Facebook continue its ban placed the account of former President Donald Trump, which was initially imposed following the Capitol riot on Jan. 6.

House Republicans introduce bill to ban 'tyrannical' federal mask mandates
House Republicans join with Sen. Rand Paul to ban mask mandates on public transit
Marisa Schultz / FOX News 
 
A group of House Republicans introduced legislation Friday to ban federal coronavirus mask mandates on public transportation, arguing it's time to return to pre-pandemic normalcy.

Rep. Andy Biggs, the chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, shared his legislation first with Fox News that serves as the House companion bill to Sen. Rand Paul's mask mandate legislation in the Senate. 

"There is no scientific evidence for the continuation of mask mandates on public transportation," Biggs, R-Ariz., told Fox News in a statement. "Bottom line, mask mandates are old news, and are only being kept in place by those who relish controlling our day-to-day lives. The viral spread is collapsing and our normal lives are returning. It's time for the CDC to follow the science and end the tyrannical COVID-19 restrictions once and for all." 

While states and businesses have largely loosened their mask mandates in recent weeks because of the widespread availability of vaccinations and reduction in coronavirus cases compared to the peak of the pandemic, one major exception has been public transportation...

'Let Them Die': Local NAACP Leader Espouses Violent Rhetoric Against Opponents of Critical Race Theory 
Rebecca Downs / Townhall Tipsheet
 
Michelle Leete, leader of the NAACP Fairfax chapter, had some choice words for those who dare oppose Critical Race Theory (CRT). "Let them die," she proclaimed to applause from a crowd who joined her outside Jackson Middle School, located in the Fairfax County Public School (FCPS) system, the 11th largest in the country and the largest in Virginia.

Such an incendiary line came after Leete ranted off a whole slew of names to refer to those in opposition to CRT, including "anti-education, anti-teacher, anti-equity, anti-history, anti-racial reckoning, anti-opportunity, anti-help people, anti-diversity, anti-platform, anti-science, anti-change agent, anti-social justice, anti-health care (mentioned twice), anti-worker (mentioned twice), anti-LGBTQ+, anti-children, anti-environment, anti-ambitious policy chance, anti-inclusion, anti-live and let live people."

Black Lives Matter blames US, praises Cuban regime, social media erupts
The BLM tweet was sent out at about the time Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel admitted that his government’s failures played a role in the protests
 
Black Lives Matter faced fierce criticism late Wednesday after posting a statement that blasted the U.S. and praised Cuba's government while the island was destabilized by historic protests and violent crackdowns.

The tweet blamed the U.S. embargo for the country's instability and credited the Cuban government for historically granting "Black revolutionaries" asylum.

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, was quick to rebuke the tweet. 

"The extortionist ring known as the Black Lives Matter organization took a break today from shaking down corporations for millions & buying themselves mansions to share their support for the Communist regime in #Cuba," Rubio tweeted.

The BLM tweet was sent out at about the time Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel admitted in a televised address that his government’s failures played a role in the protests over food shortages and other issues. He had earlier called on "revolutionaries" to counter the anti-government protesters.
