Our First Fundraiser.

Long ago we decided that we would never do a fundraiser for this blog. We have always gladly assumed the costs associated with the hosting, domain name, etc.

However, we think we need to create a fundraiser in order to procure this:

1941 Boeing B-17E Flying Fortress
s/n 2682 N12355

Boeing B-17E built in Seattle

Specifications

Airframe:

This B-17E “Flying Fortress” is extremely rare, being one of the few Seattle built Boeing B-17’s surviving to date. Most of the other surviving B-17’s were built under license by either Lockheed or Douglas.

Vaccinations Are Infrastructure?

You may have heard of the $3.5 trillion “Infrastructure” Bill that is trying to work its way through Congress.

One of the many concerns has been that there are social programs in the bill that no one, unless you are the Biden administration, considers to be “infrastructure.”

For example:

The resolution instructs to fill the Medicaid coverage gap, providing insurance for those who earn above the threshold to qualify for Medicare in their state, but below the minimum income that makes them eligible for the Affordable Care Act’s tax credit. This could cover up to 2 million adults across the country.

Colion Noir: “Now They Want To Ban Airsoft Guns, I Told You They Will Never Stop.”

The video below is by lawyer and Second Amendment rights advocate Colion Noir concerning Canada’s attempt to ban “airsoft guns.”

For those who don’t know:

Airsoft is a team game in which participants eliminate opposing players by tagging them out of play with spherical plastic projectiles shot with mock air weapons called airsoft guns.

The imitation guns are not lethal which makes one wonder, “why would anyone seek to ban them?”

Let this be another warning to everyone in America that the Anti-gun lobby and their politicians will never stop at trying to ban GUNS.

John Stossel Is Suing Facebook.

Long time reported John Stossel is suing Facebook for the censuring of his videos. Normally, as a private company, Facebook can do what it wants and decide what is allowed on its platform. Yet Stossel is making a different claim.

Stossel is claiming that Facebook’s “independent fact checkers” censored and or labeled his videos based on things he never said.

(The above video gives examples.)

According to Stossel’s lawsuit, in the past year he posted two short video reports on Facebook in which he “interviewed experts in the climate change arena.”

In one video, “Government Fueled Fires,” about the 2020 wildfires in California, Facebook and its fact-checking partners “falsely attributed to Stossel a claim he never made, and on that basis flagged the content as ‘misleading’ and ‘missing context,’ so that would-be viewers would be routed to the false attribution statement.” The complaint says that Stossel’s video “explored a scientific hypothesis” that “while climate change undoubtedly contributes to forest fires, it was not the primary cause of the 2020 California fires.” Per the suit, Stossel says he never made the claim that “Forest fires are caused by poor management. Not by climate change,” which was in Facebook’s fact-check.

ACLU “Apologizes” For Altered Ginsburg Quote.

The ACLU has “apologized” for altering a quote made by the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Anthony Romero, the executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union, said Monday that he regretted that a tweet sent out recently by his organization altered the words of a well-known quote by the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The A.C.L.U. tweet, which was sent out Sept. 18, changed Justice Ginsburg’s words, replacing each of her references to women with “person,” “people” or a plural pronoun in brackets. Justice Ginsburg, who died last year, is a revered figure in liberal and feminist circles and directed the A.C.L.U.’s Women’s Rights Project from its founding in 1972 until she became a federal judge in 1980.

The tweet by the A.C.L.U. occasioned mockery and some anger on social media from feminists and others.

ACLU Makes Baffling Edit Of Ginsburg Quote.

This past Saturday was the one year anniversary of the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Ginsburg had worked with the ACLU and because of that, the ACLU tweeted what is a bizarre edited quote from her:

But that is not what Ginsburg said:

President Biden Fires Lee Greenwood? What The Heck?

Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless The USA” is an iconic that is unabashedly patriotic and pro-USA.

What we did not know was that Greenwood is (well, was) a member of the National Council on the Arts.

Established by Congress in 1965, the National Endowment for the Arts is the independent federal agency whose funding and support gives Americans the opportunity to participate in the arts, exercise their imaginations, and develop their creative capacities. Through partnerships with state arts agencies, local leaders, other federal agencies, and the philanthropic sector, the Arts Endowment supports arts learning, affirms and celebrates America’s rich and diverse cultural heritage, and extends its work to promote equal access to the arts in every community across America.

Greenwood was appointed to the NEA by President George W. Bush (43) for a six year term on the NEA. President Obama reappointed Greenwood. President Donald Trump reappointed him as well.

Now, in what is a simply stunning action, President Joe Biden has fired Greenwood.

Coaches Struggle With Using Pronouns.

From the folks at the Babylon Bee…..

This substitute coach has never coached little league baseball before. He has nothing to worry about… as long as he gets the children’s increasingly complicated pronouns right.

The weird thing is that while the Babylon Bee site is known for satire, this piece cuts very close to the bone. Soon, the Babylon Bee will be taken as a serious news source – at least on the par of CNN.

A few of the best comments:
