Quote IV

And those who come to the city, this is not a homeless issue. This is a migrant, refugee, asylum crisis that we are facing. And this is humanitarian action that was created by human hands. NYC Mayor Adams

We should laugh at this satire. Instead I want to weep for our nation.

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The FBI has assured the nation that they will get back to figuring out why that guy shot 411 people in Las Vegas four years ago once they're finished investigating parent-teacher school board meetings across the country.

"Something more pressing than investigating the worst mass shooting in our nation's history has come up: parents concerned about what their kids are learning in school," said FBI agent Lars Conner as he donned a MAGA hat and sunglasses to infiltrate a parent-teacher meeting. "This is our top priority right now. Trying to figure out why a rando totally went rogue and fired thousands of rounds out a hotel window on concertgoers back in 2017 has to go on the backburner, for now."

Hitler's experiments were deemed crimes against humanity. I guess this is different because "they" care.

In a push to create a “safer and more inclusive” environment, K-12 school districts are creating gender-affirming closets, giving students access to chest binders, stand-to-pee devices and makeup to help students change their gender identity.

Libraries, children’s hospitals and LGBTQ organizations are partnering with school districts to provide money and resources to build gender-affirming closets in the public institutions. The materials provided to students aid them in gender transitioning by mimicking the other sex.


It really is hard to follow Christ's admonishment of loving your enemy.

Opinions are like assholes. Everyone has one. And my opinion is that there are more topics that are black and white and not gray. But then again, I'm not a mealy mouth Check Box Spokesbroad.

The White House declined on Monday to say whether major cities are safe while touting President Joe Biden’s efforts to fund police in response to rising crime.

This line of questioning was inspired in part by former White House press secretary Jen Psaki, now an MSNBC pundit, saying crime was a major vulnerability for Democrats in the midterm elections.

1354 Athlete Cardiac Arrests, Serious Issues, 922 of Them Dead, Since COVID Injection
It is definitely not normal for so many mainly young athletes to suffer from cardiac arrests or to die while playing their sport, but this year it is happening. Many of these heart issues and deaths come shortly after they got a COVID vaccine. While it is possible this can happen to people who did not get a COVID vaccine, the sheer numbers clearly point to the only obvious cause.

Important Notes: The number of dead are included in the total number. There are also dozens of reports that are not included in the total number shown in the headline because they are not or may not be vaccine-related.

The so-called health professionals running the COVID vaccine programs around the world keep repeating that “the COVID vaccine is a normal vaccine and it is safe and effective.”

gary dempsey 20 years
Gary Dempsey, professional soccer player played 500 games over 20 years, with no cardiac arrests.

In response to their pronouncement, here is a non-exhaustive and continuously growing list of mainly young athletes who had major medical issues in 2021/2022 after receiving one or more COVID vaccines. Initially, many of these were not reported. We know that many people were told not to tell anyone about their adverse reactions and the media was not reporting them. They started happening and ramping up after the first COVID vaccinations. The mainstream media still are not reporting most, but sports news cannot ignore the fact that soccer players and other stars collapse in the middle of a game due to a sudden cardiac arrest. Many of those die – more than 50%.

Let's forget about EVs for the moment. Do you think the ICE vehicle is too expensive now? They could be even more expensive if the National Transportation Safety Board has their way.

The National Transportation Safety Board is recommending that all new vehicles in the U.S. be required to have blood alcohol monitoring systems that can stop an intoxicated person from driving.

The recommendation, if enacted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, could reduce the number of alcohol-related crashes, one of the biggest causes of highway deaths in the U.S.

I believe this is a free market decision to be made by auto makers. If the manufacturer believes this is such a great thing, they will stand by it and attempt to market it.

I'm sorry to say, you can not legislate life to be free of risk.

Why is this in the news? Why is this in The ONT? Rules are for peons. Not the JEF and his family.

EXCLUSIVE: Barack Obama's Secret Service SUV parked in handicapped space for TWO HOURS while he enjoyed dinner with daughters Sasha and Malia at swanky LA sushi restaurant

Former President Barack Obama was pictured boarding his Secret Service SUV on Saturday, which was parked over a handicap spot in West LA's trendy Hamasaku sushi restaurant

The Secret Service vehicle was seen backing up to the handicap spot, where it remained for two hours

After dining out at the restaurant, the former president emerged alone as he waved goodbye to staff trying to give him free ice cream from the restaurant, which normally sells high-end desserts

Obama was at the restaurant on Saturday with his two daughters, Sasha and Malia, who live in LA, while Michelle was in Seneca Falls, New York, being inducted in the National Women's Hall of Fame

If it wouldn't be such a serious matter it would be funny. OK, technically speaking 25-30 armed FBI agents at your front door in the early morning hours perhaps doesn't constitute a SWAT team.

The FBI has denied sending a swat team of 25-30 agents to arrest Catholic pro-life activist Mark Houck for allegedly shoving an escort outside of a Planned Parenthood clinic last year.

Outrage ensued among conservatives throughout the weekend when it was reported that the FBI subjected Houck’s children to a fully armored SWAT raid last week under the order of the Department of Justice (DOJ).

[Towards the end of the story]

The FBI did not deny that up to 25-30 armored agents were on the scene or that Houck’s children witnessed the agents pointing rifles at their father and mother to arrest him for allegedly shoving someone in front of an abortion clinic.

Living in the Frozen Tundra my daydreams often turn to warm weather locations for a visit. Once upon a time I thought going to Hawaii to see an NFL Pro-Bowl game might be fun. Going to Vegas to see a flag-football game isn't what I had in mind.

Does anyone else see the danger in this concession over the safety of NFL football?

Not that anyone watches the Pro Bowl much anyway, and for good reason — the players don’t want to get banged up for a meaningless exhibition. The fans aren’t that interested in a game in which players aren’t invested, for whatever reason. And so the NFL will now reset the all-star game into a flag-football contest, which is even further removed from the weekly NFL experience that fans expect.

Where is all of this electricity coming from? Unicorns?

California is committing to a plan that will make it the first U.S. state to phase out gas-fueled furnaces and water heaters in homes, a move environmentalists are betting will provide a template for other states.

The Golden State will ban the sale of all new natural gas-fired space heaters and water-heating appliances by 2030, under a proposal unanimously approved by the California Air Resources Board on Thursday.

“We need to take every action we can to deliver on our commitments to protect public health from the adverse impacts of air pollution, and this strategy identifies how we can do just that,” board Chair Liane Randolph said. “While this strategy will clean the air for all Californians, it will also lead to reduced emissions in the many low-income and disadvantaged communities that experience greater levels of persistent air pollution.

In lighter news. Or maybe not. This seems pretty shitty.

A mum became violently unwell after her daughter's pet dog pooed in her mouth as she slept.

Amanda Gommo, 51, was taking an afternoon nap with chihuahua Belle when the unwell pooch had a violent diarrhoea explosion in her face.

When he told his ex-wife he was going to piss on her grave, he wasn't kidding.

In a move definitely not intended to send the message, “You were always my Number 1,” a New Jersey man has been caught urinating daily on his ex-wife’s grave.

The suspect is apparently holding a 48-year grudge and has been urinating on the grave of his ex each morning, according to the New York Post. The deceased woman’s kids first became alarmed when they found bags of feces left at the grave site.

I wouldn't know if they are good pets, but they sure are tasty.

Because my father’s allergies prevented us from having more traditional pets, my family was an early adopter of the trend for backyard chickens that took hold among middle class Londoners in the 2000s. Many happy childhood hours were spent feeding kitchen scraps to, collecting eggs from, and playing with our hens – which largely consisted of their good-naturedly tolerating “going for rides” with us on the garden swings and slide. I’d cry when they met their ends at the hands of the local foxes, which was unfortunately not an uncommon occurrence – we cycled through around a dozen chickens over the years in which we kept them.

I find chickens to be sweet, funny, characterful creatures. I also, with some guilt and inner conflict, find them to be delicious. After years of flirtation with “flexitarianism”, and even a brief stint of being almost fully vegan, I find that nothing really feels as good to eat as meat and dairy. But while I’m just about okay with the idea of animals being slaughtered for food, I do also think it’s important for them to have a decent standard of living. I take a keen interest in the welfare of chickens in particular: as a child, I started following the activities of the British Hen Welfare Trust, and it’s long been my ambition, once I have a garden of my own, to adopt a couple of their “ex-batts” – retired battery hens saved from slaughter.

This guy wins the Super-Duper Genius Award.

A man broke into a Chicago Police Department facility on the West Side of Chicago Monday and pointed a gun at police. This was during a training exercise and the police at first weren’t sure if the man was part of the training.

When they realized he was not part of the SWAT training, a Chicago Police officer shot the intruder in the face. According to WGN:

“Members of the CPD’s SWAT team were conducting a training exercise at the department’s Homan Square facility Monday morning. As part of the training, officers were asked to put their guns on a table in a room on the building’s fifth floor, sources said.

Some sanity returns to NYC. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

NEW YORK – A Manhattan supreme court judge ruled on Friday that police officers who were fired because of the city’s COVID vaccine mandate had to be reinstated. The ruling is a a major victory for members of the NYPD’s largest police union.

Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Lyle Frank wrote the reverberating decision, saying the city’s vaccine mandate on the Police Benevolent Association was invalid “to the extent it has been used to impose a new condition of employment” on the union, the New York Post reported.
