The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“Well, what I heard was what Joe Biden said loud and clear, which is he is already making excuses for why he is going to lose in November . . . That’s what this is all about. Democrats don’t accept elections that they don’t win. I mean, it happened in 2000. It happened in 2004. It happened in 2016. Now, it’s going to be 2022.” Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO)

Quote II

“When a channel receives a strike, it is against our Terms of Service to post content or use another channel to circumvent the suspension,” an unnamed YouTube spokesperson


Quote III

“God has been with me from the beginning. My connection with God has grown way stronger. I pray to him every day. He’s helped me through so much and he’s helped open the doors and guide me in the right direction.” Kyle Rittenhouse

The problem with subjective awards is often there is no objectivity.

A Cooperstown With David Ortiz but No Barry Bonds or Roger Clemens Is a Farce
Members of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America who voted for Ortiz but not Bonds or Clemens should be investigated for voter fraud

Out of a group of steroid-aided star sluggers including Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa, ex-Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz is the only one who ever tested positive for using performance-enhancing drugs during his playing days.

Ortiz, who has consistently denied ever using steroids despite a 2009 report from The New York Times that his name was included in baseball’s Mitchell Report for testing positive for PEDs in 2003, is also now the only member of that group who was deemed worthy for induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Man Who Sold a Gun to the Brit Who Held Four Hostage in a Texas Synagogue Has Been Charged With Federal Crimes

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Wednesday, January 26, 2022
Man Who Sold Pistol Used in Synagogue Hostage Crisis Federally Charged
The man who sold Malik Faisal Akram the gun he used to kidnap hostages in a Texas synagogue earlier this month has been charged with a federal firearm crime, announced United States Attorney for the Northern District of Texas Chad E. Meacham.

Henry “Michael” Dwight Williams, 32, was charged Tuesday via criminal complaint with being a felon in possession of a firearm. He made his initial appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Renée H. Toliver in the Northern District of Texas Wednesday afternoon. A detention hearing has been set for Monday, Jan. 31.

“Federal firearm laws are designed to keep guns from falling into dangerous hands. As a convicted felon, Mr. Williams was prohibited from carrying, acquiring, or selling firearms. Whether or not he knew of his buyer’s nefarious intent is largely irrelevant — felons cannot have guns, period, and the Justice Department is committed to prosecuting those who do,” said U.S. Attorney Chad E. Meacham. “We are grateful to the many officers and agents who sprang into action as soon as the synagogue hostage crisis began, and who worked tirelessly to track the weapon from Mr. Akram to Mr. Williams. The freed hostages, the Beth Israel congregation, and indeed the entire Jewish community deserve that support.

The homeless are being cleared from the Los Angeles area in close proximity to SoFi Stadium – a move that has been interpreted as masking the city’s huge problem instead of actually tackling it ahead of Super Bowl LVI.

Photos taken on Monday by TMZ near the 405 freeway, which is a couple of miles from the stadium, showed California Highway Patrol officers facilitating the removal of tents and rerouting traffic. Meanwhile, private contractors picked up items belonging to the homeless.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ that officers began the cleanup operation on Monday morning.
