Ted Cruz And “Please Respect The People.”

Senator Ted Cruz decided to visit the a border facility where children were being held and sleeping on floors. While filming, someone from the Biden administration tried to block his picture taking.

Like a parrot, she kept repeating “please respect the people” as if sleeping on the floors under mylar blankets was “respectful.” (Unless, of course, you were a member of the National Guard in Washington DC, but even those troops had better blankets and sleeping gear.)

What is interesting to us is that it appears that the plastic on the windows blurs out most of the faces of people allowing anonymity. Where’s the issue with that?

Brevard County School Board: Rules Don’t Apply To Our Speech.

Last Thursday, the Brevard County School Board held a meeting during which the sad, but interesting case of a teacher by the name of Allison Enright was discussed.

According to the Florida Today:

Allison Enright, a teacher at Space Coast Junior/Senior High School, disclosed her medical marijuana use when she took a drug test after an injury at work. A student shoved her on a flight of stairs after she corrected him for disobeying directional hallway rules designed to limit face to face contact to slow the spread of COVID-19. Enright said she had no idea her medication violated the district’s policy, which has not been updated since 2003, and says teachers can’t use “illegal drugs,” without specifically mentioning marijuana prescribed by a doctor.

Enright said she takes a pill containing THC, the psychoactive compound in marijuana, twice a day. Before taking medical marijuana, she said she took opiods and sometimes had to use a wheelchair due to several health conditions causing pain and weakness.

“I want to make it clear: I don’t do drugs,” Enright said, addressing the board during the public comment period. “I don’t smoke pot. I don’t get high. … I love teaching. It’s not just what I do, it’s who I am. I have been at a loss without my students and colleagues. Space Coast high is my family, and I want to go back. Please, let me go back home.”

PSA – Don’t Click On Links Like These.

Over at the Coyote Blog, they are talking about a message they have gotten in emails as well as through the website’s “contact form.” While this seems to be targeting website owners, it goes to show you how far people will go and how evil they are.

Here’s the message:

Hi,

This is Melaenis and I am a qualified photographer.

I was baffled, frankly speaking, when I recognised my images at your website. If you use a copyrighted image without an owner’s license, you should be aware that you could be sued by the creator.

It’s illegal to use stolen images and it’s so сheap!

Two Years.

In 2015, Gerardo Serrano, a resident from the state of Kentucky, was traveling to Mexico to see his family. As people are wont to do these days, Serrano was documenting the trip by taking pictures and posting them to his Facebook page. It was his way of saying “I’ll see you soon.”

As Serrano approached the border crossing point at Eagle Pass, Texas, Serrano stopped and took a picture of the crossing point. This drew the ire of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents who stopped Serrano. The agents then seized his phone and demanded that Serrano give them the password, presumably so they could see the pictures Serrano had legally taken.

Serrano had no legal obligation to give them the password and said that he knew his rights and wasn’t going to give them the password.

According to the lawsuit filed on behalf of Serrano, the agents told Serrano they were “sick of hearing about [ ] rights.”

Agents then started to search Serrano’s vehicle, a 2015 Ford F-250 that Serrano had paid over $38,000 for.

The Latest Masterpiece Cakeshop Trial.

Masterpiece Cakeshop of Colorado is back in the news for all the wrong reasons.

The shop is run by Jack Phillips who came to national attention when in 2012, he declined to make a cake celebrating a gay marriage. The reason for the refusal was simple: gay marriage violates Phillips’ religious beliefs and he stated he would not create a cake with the message contrary to his beliefs. Phillips declines to make many cakes having messages he disagrees with. He has declined to make cakes celebrating Halloween, advocating the use of marijuana or illegal drugs, or disparaging people—including those in the LGBT community. There is no evidence that Phillips refuses to sell products such as “regular” cakes, cookies, or other baked goods to anyone but he draws the line when he is asked to promote something which is against his religious beliefs.

Phillips was sued by the Colorado Civil Rights Commission which ruled that Phillips had discriminated against the gay couple. Not only was Phillips fined, had to stop designing custom wedding cakes altogether, which accounted for roughly 40 percent of his business. He was ordered to “re-educate” his staff (mostly family), explaining that it is intolerant and discriminatory for him to act on his religious beliefs about marriage. He has to report to the government whenever he declines to design a cake for any reason – whether it be a Halloween cake, a bachelor party cake, a divorce party cake, or even cakes disparaging the LGBT community (all of which he had previously declined to design).

Ted Cruz, Shootings, Lies, And Democrats (One In Particular.)

Senator Ted Cruz went on the offensive after Democrats called for restrictions on gun ownership.

The “Senator from Connecticut” is Richard Blumenthal, who besides lying here, has a known history of lying, and specifically lying about his military service.

Blumenthal had claimed that he had served in Viet Nam when he did not. The website “This Ain’t Hell…But You Can See It From Here” has the the details of Blumenthal’s service having obtained his military record through a Freedom of Information Act.

How People Think You Stop Bigotry.

The Queen Has Died.

We won’t bury the lede here: famous race car driver, team owner and fan favorite Sabine Schmitz has passed away.

Schmitz died at the much too young age of 51 from cancer.

Like many people, we became familiar with Schmitz due to her appearances on the British television show “Top Gear.” No matter how many times the show featured her in racing and other competitive situations, you could count on seeing her smiling, laughing and her intense competitive nature. She was a gracious loser in the rare times that she lost, but she was driven to come back and win.

The famous German Nürburgring was the track at which Schmitz was most well known for.

She is the only female driver to win the 24 hour race held there (winning twice) but her job at the Nürburgring could have increased her chances.

The Nürburgring is a 150,000 person capacity motorsports complex located in the town of Nürburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. It features a Grand Prix race track built in 1984, and a much longer Nordschleife “North loop” track which was built in the 1920s around the village and medieval castle of Nürburg in the Eifel mountains. The north loop is 20.8 km (12.9 mi) long and has more than 300 metres (1,000 feet) of elevation change from its lowest to highest points. Jackie Stewart nicknamed the old track “The Green Hell”.
