Quick Hits: Something To Tide You Over Until the Next Covid Post Edition

LOL: Atlanta congressman who voted to defund police is carjacked and dragged along the road and he clings impotently to the car door.

Atlanta councilman running for mayor who voted for 'Defund the Police' measure is dragged down the road and almost killed by kids as young as seven who stole his Mercedes during day

While at a ribbon-cutting in northwest Atlanta on Wednesday morning, four people hopped into councilman Antonio Brown's car and took off

Police said around 11:45am Brown got out of his car and the thieves tried to take it

Brown held on and was dragged for a block before he let go

Brown says the thieves appear to be children from 7 to 11 years old

He claims it took 45 minutes for police to arrive because it was assigned as a low-priority dispatch

Two hilarious things: 1, this motherfucker actually called the cops, and 2, the cops decided to... take their own sweet time in responding.

Fuck you, asshole. You get what you deserve.

Brown filed a police report and his car was found hours later

...

Brown voted for an ordinance that would've withheld $73 million from the city's police budget

...

The incident happened as Atlanta deals with a crime surge, with murders up 59 percent and car thefts up 25 percent from a year ago, as of May 22. There have been 54 murders in Atlanta compared to 34 at this time in 2020, as well as 284 shootings, up 46 percent from a year ago.

More on Antonio Brown from Deb Heine.

Earpiece Guy. This is a parody. I... think.


Muh Private Monopolies Who Essentially Use the Government As Their Piggybanks!


Here's that story.

Republican Sen. Josh Hawley and Democrat Sen. Bernie Sanders have joined forces to condemn a $10 billion "bailout" for Blue Origin, a space flight company founded by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, hidden in a bill to rebuff China.

The measure to provide Bezos' company with billions in relief was part of an amendment to the Endless Frontier Act, which is aimed at increasing U.S. competitiveness with China through science and technology development. Fox Business reports that the amendment was authored by Sen. Maria Cantwell, a Washington Democrat in charge of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, and Sen. Roger Wicker, a Mississippi Republican.

The Senate is currently voting on amendments to the bill, which are expected to cost around $130 billion. “Whether the package sinks or swims without use of "reconciliation," which would require only 50 votes to pass, depends on whether Republicans are satisfied with the amendments that make their way into the bill. GOP members have introduced hundreds of amendments, and not all will get a vote," Fox Business reported.

Bezos' space venture is shit and failure should not be subsidized. Especially not to the tune of $10 billion.

Elon Musk is doing just fine without subsidies.

The redpilling of Al Gore's former fashion adviser Naomi Wolf continues:


The Human Potato -- wait, is he human? Kurt Schlichter reports he is simply, literally, a potato -- attacks Fox for... not having enough dissenting opinions on its panel shows.

Say, Tater, which conservative Trump supporters will be on your show this Sunday? Or any Sunday?

Steve Hayes tweeted something wrong about the 2008 election, something obviously wrong that no one posing as a "pundit" should get wrong.

He claimed that Trump saw the worst loss in Congress ever.

He conveniently overlooked the performance of George Bush and John McCain.

Because Steve Hayes, a proven loser, relies upon claims that he's Smarter Than You and Knows Stuff So That's Why You Must Vote for the Democrats He Tells You to Vote For, he doesn't want such blatant errors about very recent history known.

So he deleted it.

What's amusing is his claimed reason for deleting it:


I like how Steve Hayes claims he's deleting this not because it is super-embarrassing for this thin-skinned narcissist tool, but rather because his twitter timeline is so influential that if he left it up, the misinformation would spread like wildfire!

It's so noble of him to delete his Vital Writings in order to save the republic from a plague of disinformation!
