Trump blasts Biden for ‘moronic move’ that aids the ‘deranged pseudo-science’ of those resisting vaccines

Former President Donald Trump unleashed a statement blasting the Biden administration for aiding the anti-vaccine movement, which he referred to as a “deranged pseudo-science.”

Trump aired his anger at the decision to pause the distribution of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine over concerns about adverse effects involving six instances of people experiencing blood clotting after vaccination.

“The federal pause on the J&J shot makes no sense. Why is the Biden White House letting insanely risk-averse bureaucrats run the show?” asked Trump in the statement on Friday evening.

“Just six people out of the nearly 7 million who’ve gotten the Johnson & Johnson vaccine reported blood clots. The condition is more common in the general population, and every vaccine — indeed, every medication — carries some risk, including the Moderna and Pfizer jabs,” the former president continued.

“With COVID cases still rising nationwide, it’s sheer lunacy to delay millions of vaccinations and feed fears among the vax-resistant,” he added.

“Indeed, this moronic move is a gift to the anti-vax movement,” Trump concluded. “The science bureaucrats are fueling that deranged pseudo-science.”

The Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention halted the distribution of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine on Tuesday out of an abundance of caution. Days after the pause in distribution, polling showed that confidence in the Johnson & Johnson vaccine plummeted from 52% to 37%.

The pharmaceutical company responded in a statement cautioning people against jumping to hasty conclusions about their vaccine.

“At present, no clear causal relationship has been established between these rare events and the [Johnson & Johnson] COVID-19 vaccine,” the statement read.

Officials have clarified that the other vaccines are safe, and the same polling has shown a majority of Americans have confidence in those vaccines even after the pause in the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

Dr. Anthony Fauci voiced similar concerns about the pause resulting in more hesitancy among Americans skeptical about vaccines in general.

African american vernacular english Colleen ballinger aave Colleen ballinger racism Intelwars Miranda sings aave racism Miranda sings is racist Twitter woke mob

YouTube star accused of mocking ‘African American Vernacular English’ in tweet aimed at TikTok moms

A popular comedian who got her start on YouTube apologized after being accused of mocking “African American Vernacular English” in a tweet intended to poke fun at TikTok moms.

Colleen Ballinger produces comedic videos under the persona “Miranda Sings,” but she was forced to sing an apologetic tune after trying to make an innocuous joke.

“Yo BRUH tiktok so lit no cap i’m gonna yeet over there so fast low key. if i don’t get on fyp i’ll be big mad and big yikes like that’s high key not straight fire and so sus. bet. but low key fr tiktok is so lit and GOAT,” she tweeted from her Miranda Sings account.

What might read as a bizarre string of nonsensical words and phrases to many was excoriated on social media as racially insensitive.

“I know you thought you were just mocking tiktok kids, but you’re actually mocking AAVE. Please delete this,” responded one offended critic.

Ballinger deleted the tweet and responded to the criticism.

“I feel so stupid. I was trying to sound like an awkward mom who uses gen z slang so I googled ‘gen z slang’ & used all the words that popped up,” Ballinger tweeted to the critic.

“I should have done more research & realized that the words I used were actually AAVE. I deleted it & I am so sorry,” she added.

Another critic offered a lengthy explanation of what AAVE is and why non-black people should not use it on social media or anywhere else.

“African American Vernacular English is a linguistic code, an important aspect of Black culture, and a way of speaking that has its own grammatical structure, rules, and words. When non-Black people use AAVE, it is (more than often) invasive, disrespectful, inappropriate, and uncomfortable,” the lengthy polemic read in part.

“Ultimately, the way Black people speak is not a punchline. It is not a meme. It is not a way to appear cooler. It is not a way to be more aggressive. African American Vernacular English has cultural significance to the Black community, and it should be respected,” the post continued. “Until the system that exploits Black culture is dismantled, Black people reserve every right to be upset about the blatant disrespect, misuse, and abuse of AAVE.”

Ballinger responded, “thank you for this.”

This is not the first time Ballinger apologized to critics who called her racially insensitive. In a previous incident she apologized for a video that made fun of Hispanics by employing racial stereotypes.

Here’s more about her previous politically incorrect scrapes:

Intelwars Oregonian deleted tweet Oregonian newspaper racist Portland park shooting Portland police shooting Portland white person shot White person shot by police

Oregon newspaper deletes tweet identifying police shooting victim as a white person after online uproar

The Oregonian newspaper deleted a “poorly worded” tweet that identified the race of the victim of a lethal police shooting as white after getting criticized from the right and left.

The news outlet was reporting on a shooting where a man was shot and killed Friday morning after police said that they were alerted to a report that a man with seen with a gun at a park in Portland, Oregon.

Police said they confronted the man at about 9:40 a.m. and fired a “less lethal” projectile at him before another officer shot him once with his firearm. They called for medical attention but he was declared dead at the scene.

Protesters began accosting the police over the incident in light of recent allegedly racially charged shootings elsewhere.

The Oregonian reported that three sources had confirmed the man was a white male in his thirties.


Image Source: The Oregonian Twitter screenshot

“The man who was killed was a white male in his 30s, according to three sources with knowledge of the investigation. The Oregonian/OregonLive is identifying the man’s race in light of social unrest prompted by police shootings of Black people,” the tweet read.

Some criticized the newspaper for implying that the incident wasn’t as serious because the victim was not a minority.

“The Oregonian is noting the race of the man who was shot in Portland because people won’t care enough to riot unless the victim is black and can use it to forward a political agenda. How instructive,” tweeted talk show host Jason Rantz.

Others on the left criticized the same tweet for not being supportive of the “Black Lives Matter” cause.

“So @PortlandPolice murdered a man in Lents Park today and the @Oregonian had the audacity to print this. Someone school them on what solidarity means. Protesting killer cops is going to happen regardless of the race of the victim. The Oregonian staff just showed their whole ass,” read one tweet.

The newspaper deleted the tweet and offered an explanation in a later tweet.

“We included information in an earlier tweet about why we identified the victim’s race that was poorly worded. It was not intended to minimize what happened, only to provide context,” the newspaper said.

“We generally do not identify race in news stories but often do when reporting police shootings,” they added.

After deleting the “poorly worded” tweet, they also changed the text in the body of the article, which had been the same as in the tweet.

Portland Police would not say if they had recovered a weapon at the crime scene. A witness told The Oregonian that he saw the man behaving erratically, with his hands up and his shirt off. He said that the man was blocking traffic before police arrived.

Here’s the video from the Oregonian (includes expletives):

america first America first caucus Intelwars Kevin mccarthy vs marjorie greene Marjorie greene america first Republican party infighting

Kevin McCarthy rejects ‘nativist dog whistles’ of the ‘America First Caucus’ led by Marjorie Greene and others

House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) issued a missive in flat opposition to the newly announced “America First Caucus” organized by some Republican members of Congress including Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.).

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) told reporters on Friday that he was looking into joining the caucus and said that Greene was leading the charge.

A document obtained by Punchbowl News with a logo of the caucus described one of the aims of the group.

“America is a nation with a border, and a culture, strengthened by a common respect for uniquely Anglo-Saxon political traditions,” the document read.

The document also said the caucus would be in support of infrastructure projects that befit “the progeny of European architecture, whereby public infrastructure must be utilitarian as well as stunningly, classically beautiful, befitting a world power and source of freedom.”

Some saw the inclusion of the phrase “Ango-Saxon” as racially charged and even accused the Republicans involved of being aligned with white supremacist ideals.

The beleaguered Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), who is inundated with his own scandal, unabashedly tweeted that he was joining the caucus.

“I’m proud to join @mtgreenee in the #AmericaFirst Caucus. We will end wars, stop illegal immigration & promote trade that is fair to American workers,” tweeted Gaetz.

‘The party of Lincoln… not nativist dog whistles’

McCarthy appeared to be on the other end of the debate.

“America is built on the idea that we are all created equal and success is earned through honest, hard work. It isn’t built on identity, race, or religion,” responded McCarthy in a tweet that didn’t directly name the America First Caucus.

“The Republican Party is the party of Lincoln & the party of more opportunity for all Americans—not nativist dog whistles,” he added.

McCarthy’s criticism aligned with many of the reactions against the America First Caucus. He had previously defended Greene when she was criticized by Democrats over statements she made in the past supporting various conspiracy theories.

Christianity Christianity imposes gender Demi lovato Demi lovato cut her hair Demi lovato pansexual Gender and sexuality norms Intelwars

Demi Lovato cut her hair in order to free herself of ‘gender and sexuality norms’ imposed by Christianity

Pop star Demi Lovato said she cut her long hair in order to free herself of the “gender and sexuality norms” imposed on her by a Christian culture in the South.

Lovato made the comments while a guest on the Drew Barrymore Show on Tuesday.

She said that she has given up on trying to be a “sexy feminine pop star” and instead cut her hair.

“I cut my hair because I just wanted to free myself of all of the gender and sexuality norms that were placed on me as a, you know, Christian in the South,” said Lovato.

“And when I cut my hair, I felt so liberated because I wasn’t subscribing to an ideal or a belief placed upon me to be something that I’m not.”

Lovato says she feels the “happiest” she’s ever been because she’s no longer trying to be something she’s not.

“If you don’t like it, fine,” she added, “but if this provokes a conversation and raises awareness, takes away the stigma about the topics I’m talking about, then that’s what I want, is to just open people’s perspectives and to change the conversation around recovery too.”

The pop singer was publicizing a documentary about her life entitled “Demi Lovato: Dancing With The Devil.”

Lovato had recently come out as a “pansexual” as well, meaning that she eschews traditional gender designations and is attracted to “anything really.” She also blamed Christianity for suppressing her pansexual sexuality.

“I felt a lot of shame because growing up in Texas as a Christian, that’s very frowned upon,” she said on the Joe Rogan podcast. “Any attraction that I ever had toward a female at a young age, I shut it down before I even let myself process what I was feeling.”

Here’s the video of Lovato’s comments:

Andrew yang choking bitches Andrew yang mayoral campaign Andrew yang toxic masculinity Andrew yang video scandal Intelwars Toxic masculinity

Video of ‘awkward’ interaction between Andrew Yang and a New Yorker may derail his mayoral campaign

A video of an awkward interaction between Andrew Yang and a New Yorker threatens to derail his campaign to become New York City’s next mayor.

The video shows Yang asking questions from a man about sexual situations, but it ends after the man asks Yang if he chokes “bitches.”

Critics of Yang say that he should not have laughed at the man’s misogynist statement, despite his immediate motion to end the video.

“Can a man keep his Timbs on?” asks the man, referring to Timberland, the popular boot brand.

“Can a man keep his Timbs on?” Yang responds, puzzled.

“Yeah, while he’s f***ing bitches, can a man keep his Timbs on?” the man repeats emphatically.

“I think it’s purely up to your partner, right? I mean if your partner is cool with it,” Yang responds.

“That’s what I’m saying!” the man responds.

“Do you choke bitches, Andrew Yang?!” the man asks, laughing.

The video appeared on a YouTube channel of a man named Lawrence Reese, who identifies himself as a comedian. His channel has 8 subscribers and 267 total views apart from the Yang video.

That video has become a headache for Yang’s campaign after his critics pounced on it to accuse him of being a sexist.

“You don’t use that word! And absolutely you do not get to engage in that behavior,” said Maya Wiley, another mayoral candidate, to WABC-TV. “It is not funny! We do not laugh! And we do not turn our backs and walk away!”

A small group of progressive elected women penned a letter of outrage in response to the video.

“We couldn’t believe our eyes or ears. When Andrew Yang was asked by supporters about violently assaulting women, he responded by laughing. But this isn’t a laughing matter,” the letter read.

The letter goes on to say the incident is the latest in incidents involving Yang that involve “toxic masculinity, misogyny, and bro-culture.”

The campaign has responded to the outrage, saying in part, “The video simply reflects a quick awkward moment… when Yang was trying to be nice to someone on the subway he didn’t know.”

Yang also addressed the controversy.

“I think most New Yorkers know that I try to be friendly to people, and in this case someone wanted a video and I thought I’d be friendly,” Yang said. “He said something that was plainly inappropriate that I didn’t find funny at all and so I walked away.”

Here’s the video that tanked Yang’s chances:

Intelwars Ivanka Trump Ivanka trump vaccination Trump family Trump vaccinations vaccine distribution Vaccine inequality

‘I hope that’s bleach in the syringe’: Liberals react to Ivanka Trump posting a vaccination pic

Critics of Ivanka Trump reacted harshly and bitterly to her publishing photographs of herself being vaccinated against the coronavirus and encouraging her followers to do the same.

“Today, I got the shot!!! I hope that you do too! Thank you Nurse Torres!!!” read the tweet from the daughter of former President Donald Trump on Wednesday.

While some thanked Trump for encouraging her 10.3 million followers to get vaccinated, many of her critics used the opportunity to assail her and her family.

“After she, her klan daddy, and her entire degenerate family were complicit in the deaths of 500k people, including my mother in love, family members, church members, colleagues, and friends, I don’t give a flying fig about Ivanka Trump getting vaccinated,” tweeted left-wing pastor Talbert Swan.

“I don’t believe for a second that she waited till she was actually eligible for the vaccine and didn’t jump the line. This pic is probably 3 months old,” said personal trainer Aaron Guy.

“They bent the needle trying to puncture her white privilege,” said another Twitter user.

One critic was particularly acidic in their response.

“I hope that’s bleach in that syringe,” read the tweet.

Not all of her critics were from the left. Many on the right were angered that she would tell Americans to get vaccinated.

Additionally, some adherents of the QAnon conspiracy theory were also disappointed and conjectured that perhaps it was a staged vaccination.

The U.S. has jumped far ahead of Europe in their comparative vaccination rates. A report from RTE said that the difference could be explained by the U.S. going into business early on with pharmaceutical companies to produce the vaccine, while European countries shopped for the vaccine.

Intelwars Mask mandate new hampshire Mask mandates New hampshire ends mask mandate Nh gov. chris sununu Sununu ends mask mandate

New Hampshire Gov. Sununu announces end of statewide mask mandate

Republican New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu announced an end to the statewide mask mandate as coronavirus vaccinations increased and hospitalizations decreased.

Sununu announced on Thursday that the mask mandate would end on Friday.

“As fatalities continue to decline, as hospitalizations remain manageable, and as vaccinations continue to increase, the state’s mask mandate will not be renewed tomorrow,” he tweeted.

“This mandate going away will not limit or prevent the ability of private businesses or cities and towns from requiring masks, as was the case beforehand,” Sununu added. “New Hampshire residents know how to keep ourselves and our neighbors safe without a state mandate – just as we did before the winter surge.”

Sununu told reporters at a media briefing that the state is averaging one fatality from coronavirus per day, the lowest rate it’s had since October. In January the seven-day average of coronavirus fatalities rose to a high of 12 deaths.

While coronavirus infections and hospitalizations are increasing slightly, Sununu said he was not worried about hospitals being overrun with coronavirus patients.

“The pandemic is not over. And we are not claiming victory by any means,” Sununu explained. “But our success has created opportunities.”

Sununu also said that masking would be encouraged to prevent coronavirus infections when people are unable to follow social distancing guidelines.

“It’s just a good idea,” he added. “It’s recommended by public health, we’re strongly behind that message, and we encourage everyone to continue to do so.”

The governor expects that 95% of people who want to receive a vaccination will be able to do so by May 7. On that date, the coronavirus restrictions on businesses will he lifted and become “universal best practices” instead.

Here’s more about the mandate ending in New Hampshire:

Democrats pack the court ed markey Intelwars jerry nadler Packing the supreme court Scotus packing Supreme court packing

Breaking: Democrats to unveil legislation to pack the Supreme Court with 4 more justices

Democrats in the House and Senate are planning to introduce legislation to expand the Supreme Court from the current 9 members to 13.

The plan to pack the court was first reported by Ryan Grim of The Intercept on Wednesday. It is sponsored in the Senate Sen. Ed Markey (D) of Massachusetts and in the House by Rep. Jerry Nadler (D) of New York.

Far-left partisans have pressed for Democrats to push the controversial plan since former President Donald Trump was able to fill the seat held by liberal justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg with Justice Amy Coney Barrett, a conservative.

While President Joe Biden had refused to say before the election if he would support the plan, Democrats appear to be eager to rush headlong into the plot.

The report was later confirmed by NBC News and inspired a contentious interaction during a House committee hearing when Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) demanded to know from Nadler if the report was true.

Nadler refused to answer the question and said that Jordan was acting inappropriately.

Democratic Rep. Mondaire Jones of New York, was less shy to admit to the court-packing plan.

Our democracy is under assault, and the Supreme Court has dealt the sharpest blows. To restore power to the people, we must #ExpandTheCourt. That’s why I’m introducing the Judiciary Act of 2021 with @RepJerryNadler, @RepHankJohnson, and @SenMarkey to add four seats to SCOTUS,” he tweeted.

The Supreme Court has been composed of nine members since 1869, for 152 years. The Constitution does not set out how many members must be on the Supreme Court.

That convention was almost broken when Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt suggested in 1937 that he might expand the court with jurists who would be sympathetic to his unconstitutional plans to combat the Great Depression. Members of his own party balked at the plan and he was forced to abandon his “court-packing” scheme.

Despite the long history of Democrats trying to pack the highest court of the land, it is unlikely to be successful given the 50-50 split in the Senate and the presence of some moderate Democrats who are reticent to support far left legislation.

Here’s more about the Democrats’ newest plot to pack the court:

Binary courtney stodden Courtney stodden Gender fluid celebrities Intelwars Lgbtq agenda Nonbinary celebrities Nonbinary gender

‘My spirit is fluid’: Courtney Stodden comes out as ‘nonbinary’

Reality show personality Courtney Stodden announced on social media that she was identifying as “nonbinary,” and did not identify as a woman anymore.

The model and social media influencer said in the Instagram post that her preferred pronouns were “They/them/theirs.”

“I don’t Identify as she or her. I’ve never felt like I ever fit in anywhere,” Stodden explained.

“I was bullied horribly in school because I was different. The other girls never understood me. It got so bad that my mom pulled me out of school. And still, i don’t fit in. I never really connected with anyone my age,” Stodden added.

“My spirit is fluid with a kaleidoscope of color,” the 26-year-old concluded.

A nonbinary person is one who has no official gender designation and rejects the traditional male/female gender dichotomy.

“I love all genderless angels with my entire heart,” Stodden tweeted after her announcement.

Stodden went on to explain the announcement in a statement to Variety.

“I’m excited to begin to truly start expressing myself without worry of others’ judgments or opinions,” the actress wrote. “I’ve lived too long hiding from who I really am. I’m so excited for everyone to see my true self creatively and spiritually.”

Stodden first made headlines in 2011 when she married Doug Hutchison, a 51-year-old Hollywood actor, when she was only 16 years old. Her mother signed off on the controversial relationship after citing his Christian faith. The couple divorced two and a half years later, reconciled, but divorced again in 2020.

Stodden later claimed that Hutchison continued to court teenagers after their relationship ended, an accusation he denied. In a comment to TheBlaze in 2020, Stodden called Hutchison a “sociopath.”

Cheney vote trump Intelwars Liz chaney donations Liz Cheney Liz cheney primary challenger Liz cheney vs trump Trump against liz cheney

Liz Cheney says she will not vote for Trump if he runs again in 2024, and he responds immediately

U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), the third-highest ranking Republican in the House, said that if former President Donald Trump ran again for president in 2024 that she would not vote for him, and Trump responded immediately.

Cheney made the comments at the end of an interview on Neil Cavuto’s show on Fox News Wednesday.

Well, look, Neil, I’ve been very clear about my views about what happened on January 6th, about my views of the president’s culpability, I obviously voted to impeach him, I think that it was the gravest violation of an oath of office by any president in American history,” she explained.

“I think for us as a party, we’ve got to be the party of hope and aspiration, and we cannot embrace insurrection, we can’t minimize what happened on January 6th, and I think that all of us regardless of partisanship, have an obligation and a duty to the Constitution.”

“If Donald Trump were the 2024 nominee, would you support him?” asked Cavuto.

“I would not,” said Cheney without pause.

News of the admission from Cheney, who was one of the few Republican members of Congress to vote to impeach Trump after the U.S. Capitol rioting, apparently reached the former president, who released a statement against her about an hour later.

“[S]o many people many people are looking to run against Crazy Liz Cheney — but we only want one,” read the statement from Trump.

“She is so far down in Wyoming polls that the only way she can win is numerous candidates running against her and splitting the vote. Hopefully, that won’t happen,” he added. “I’ll make an Endorsement soon!”

Other vocal critics of Trump have offered differing opinions on a possible 2024 presidential run, including Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) who said that the former president would likely win if he ran again.

John Boehner, the former Republican Speaker of the House, said that he voted for Trump in 2020 over his “good friend” Joe Biden, but that he would hope to have other alternatives to vote for if Trump ran in 2024.

Soon after Cheney voted to impeach Trump, the Wyoming GOP party answered by censuring her and demanding her resignation. She also successfully fended off a campaign led by Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida to have her removed from GOP leadership in February.

Cheney’s office said that her re-election campaign raised $1.5 million in the first three months of 2021, a record for her fundraising efforts.

Here’s the video of Cheney’s comments:

Frank speech platform Intelwars Mike lindell election claims Mike lindell frank platform Mike lindell social media ban Mypillow ceo mike lindell Social media censorship

Mike Lindell says his free speech platform will be a combo of YouTube and Twitter, and no one will be able to take it down

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell released details about his free speech platform that is intended to be a combination of YouTube and Twitter, adding that no one will be able to take it down from the internet.

Lindell released a video detailing some of the features of his platform, which is called “Frank Speech.”

“This is gonna be a platform like no other, it’s kinda like a YouTube Twitter combination,” said Lindell on the video.

He went on to say that he has been working on the platform for four years and invested millions of dollars into it.

“I’ve spent millions of dollars making it the most secure, we’re gonna be able to handle the capacity, your everything’s gonna be the most secure, we’re gonna be attacked, but I have my own servers and everything. We’re not gonna be worried about Amazon taking it down, or YouTube or Google, or Apple,” Lindell explained.

“And we’re gonna get our voice of free speech out there!” he added.

Lindell asked for people interested in the platform to sign up for an exclusive VIP viewing of the service on Thursday at midnight. The full platform will launch on Monday morning in an event Lindell calls the “Frankathon.”

The pro-Trump businessman has been banned from many social media platforms because of his many claims about the 2020 presidential election. He is also being sued for $1.2 billion by Dominion Voting Systems over his claims.

“You’ve never seen anything like it. You’re gonna love it, you’re gonna have your own YouTube channel, only that’s your Twitter handle, or Twitter channel, so to speak. But I’m just so excited,” Lindell continued on the Frank video.

“It’s gonna be, all of the cancels of our First Amendment we’re seeing going on right now, well guess what, it’s coming back, you’re not gonna have to worry about what you’re saying,” he said.

Lindell added that people won’t be able to use the “four swear words” on his platform, and he said that people will be prohibited from taking the Lord’s name in vain.

“Free speech is not pornography, free speech isn’t, ‘I’m gonna kill you!'” he explained.

Here’s the video from Mike Lindell:

Future of the gop Gop inner fighting Intelwars Mitch mcconnell vs trump Republican trump fighting Trump insults mcconnell Trump mcconnell feud

Mitch McConnell responds to Trump calling him a ‘dumb son of a b***h’ over the election

An ally of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said that he wants to end the one-sided feud with former President Donald Trump and focus on regaining a Republican majority instead.

The admission came after Trump referred to the GOP leader as a “dumb son of a b***h” during a tirade to Republican National Committee donors at his Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida.

Trump reportedly insulted McConnell while comparing him to his Democratic counterpart, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (N.Y.).

“If that were Schumer instead of this dumb son of a b***h Mitch McConnell they would never allow it to happen. They would have fought it,” said Trump, according to the Washington Post.

When McConnell was pressed Tuesday by reporters to respond to Trump, he deflected away from the insults.

“What I’m concentrating on is the future and what we are confronted with here is a totally left-wing administration, with a slight majority in the House, a 50-50 Senate trying to transform America into something no one voted for last year. No one voted to transform America into something totally different,” McConnell responded.

But Senate Minority Whip John Thune (R-S.D.) later said that McConnell seeks to end the feud with the former president.

“Right now, it’s sort of a one-sided thing. The leader has no animosity and he’s made it very clear he wants to work with the president to get the majority back,” Thune explained.

The relationship between the two has been a rocky one, with McConnell blaming Trump for the lethal Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol while the former president blames McConnell for the Republicans losing the majority in the U.S. Senate.

Trump reportedly went on in the speech to promise that Republicans would retake Congress and the White House in 2022 and in 2024. He has not indicated whether he will run for president again in 2024.

Here’s the response to Trump’s insult from McConnell:

Dirty work Intelwars Mike Rowe Mike rowe minimum wage Mike rowe upsets liberals Mike rowe wages Minimum wage hike

Liberals melt down after Mike Rowe outlines the downside to raising minimum wage

Mike Rowe outlined what could be the downside to raising the minimum wage and liberals online went into meltdown mode in response.

The former “Dirty Jobs” star spoke to Fox Business about the opportunities that might be lost to workers if the minimum wage is raised.

“I want everybody who works hard and plays fair to prosper,” Rowe said.

“I want everybody to be able to support themselves. But if you just pull the money out of midair you’re going to create other problems, like there is a ladder of success that people climb and some of those jobs that are out there for seven, eight, nine dollars an hour, in my view, they’re simply not intended to be careers,” he explained.

“They’re not intended to be full-time jobs,” he added. “They’re rungs on a ladder.”

Biden has vowed to fight to increase the minimum wage, but an analysis of the Democrats’ plan by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office found that it could lead to the loss of 1.4 million jobs.

Rowe was also concerned that lower wage jobs were opportunities for workers with few skills to gain those skills in order to gain better employment.

“[Those jobs] are ways for people to get experience in the workforce doing a thing that might not necessarily pay you as much as you’d like, but nevertheless serves a real purpose,” he added.

“I worry that the path to a skilled trade can be compromised when you offer an artificially high wage for, I hate the expression, but an unskilled job,” Rowe explained. “So to me, the brightest line needs to be drawn between skilled and unskilled work. We need to encourage more people to learn a skill that’s actually in demand.”

Supporters of the minimum wage were angered by Rowe’s argument and took to Twitter to excoriate him.

“I come from a family of minimum wage and blue collar workers. I worked minimum wage jobs before and during college to pay the bills after I left the Army. Guys like Mike Rowe are hacks who perform white masculinity and American Exceptionalism’ with remarkably uncalloused hands,” tweeted Charlotte Clymer, LGBTQ activist.

“Hi, I’m mike Rowe. And today on Dirty Jobs, I’m going to introduce you to some people I don’t value nor give two s***s about. Let’s have some fun,” said Jessica Huseman, a liberal journalist.

“A guy named mike rowe definitely exists. the real him is nothing like the dude who shows up on television to sell trucks, starvation wages and right to work,” responded Nathan Bernhardt.

Rowe also addressed the minimum wage debate in 2017 in an appearance on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show.

Alejandro giammattei Biden migrant messaging Children at the border Children in cages Guatemala president vs biden Intelwars Unaccompanied minors

Guatemalan president says Biden’s confusing messaging encouraged smugglers to drop off children at the border

Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei said that President Joe Biden’s confusing messaging on immigration led to the migrant crisis by encouraging human smugglers to drop off children at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Giammattei made the comments in an interview with Ayman Mohyeldin of MSNBC.

“The president has been talking and speaking very compassionately about migration, certainly children migration,” Mohyeldin said. “Do you believe that the president’s message about compassion is making the situation worse or is indirectly encouraging migrants to informally migrate to the U.S.?”

“I am nobody to make a judgment here, but I believe in the first few weeks of the Biden administration, messages were confusing,” responded Giammattei, translated into English by MSNBC.

“They were compassionate messages that were understood by people in our country, especially the coyotes, to tell families, ‘we’ll take the children, the children can go in and once the children are there they will call their parents.’ And so those messages were confusing. Not because of the way they were communicated, but because of the way they were translated here,” he explained.

Giammattei went on to say that the crisis was concerning because the unaccompanied minors were more likely to fall into the hands of cartels and the prostitution network as they tried to make their way into the U.S.

Mohyeldin also asked Giammattei to respond to the conditions in U.S. detention centers for those who were caught at the border. He said that the coyotes, the smugglers who lead the illegal migrants into the U.S., were far more inhumane. He also said that it would be difficult for any nation to provide the proper conditions for a massive wave of migrants.

“What I can say is that no government, no matter how large or strong, can have that gigantic apparatus that would be required to address 30 or 40 thousand people in detention centers and have all of them in a status where they’re claiming refuge,” Giammattei said.

The Biden administration is exploring the possibility of sending cash payments to countries, including Guatemala, in order to stabilize the governments and economies so that migrants feel less of a push to migrate northward.

Here’s the interview with Guatemala’s president:

Biden police reform tlaib Biden tlaib police reform Defund the police End all policing Intelwars police reform Rashida tlaib vs the police

Biden backs away from Rashida Tlaib’s call to end all policing

The White House refused to endorse Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) in her call to end all policing in the wake of the officer-involved death of 20-year-old Daunte Wright during a traffic stop Sunday afternoon in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki was asked on Tuesday whether President Joe Biden would endorse the radical policy espoused the far-left congresswoman.

“Look, what I can state from here, is that, um, that’s not the president’s view,” Psaki responded.

“The president’s view is that there are necessary outdated reforms that should be put in place,” she continued, “that there is accountability that needs to happen, that the loss of life is far too high, that these families are suffering around the country, and that the Black community is exhausted from the ongoing threats they feel.”

Tlaib tweeted out her sentiment on Monday evening as rioting broke out in Minneapolis.

“It wasn’t an accident. Policing in our country is inherently & intentionally racist,” Tlaib said.

“Daunte Wright was met with aggression & violence. I am done with those who condone government funded murder. No more policing, incarceration, and militarization. It can’t be reformed,” she added.

Tlaib was likely responding to a statement from the Brooklyn Center Police Department on Monday that said the police officer who shot Wright had done so accidentally after believing she had unholstered her Taser instead.

In bodycam video footage released by police, the officer yells, “Taser! Taser! Taser!” to warn other officers before shooting Wright, who had broken away from another officer and was trying to escape in his vehicle. Wright, a black man, had been pulled over for driving with expired tags, but officers discovered that he had an arrest warrant during the traffic stop.

In response to the public outrage over the death of Wright, the mayor of Brooklyn Center assumed control of the police department after the city council fired the city manager. Also, Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Gannon and Officer Kimberly Potter, a 26-year veteran on the force, both resigned Tuesday.

Here’s the response from Jen Psaki:

Duante wright riots Ilhan omar muslim curfew Ilhan omar tweets Intelwars Minneapolis duante wright Minneapolis rioting Minneapolis riots

Curfew imposed on Minneapolis to prevent rioting, but Rep. Ilhan Omar obtains exemption for Muslims observing Ramadan

Local and state officials imposed a curfew Monday on Minneapolis in order to prevent violence from possible protests over a police shooting, but Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) said she obtained an exemption for Muslims observing Ramadan.

Tensions arose quickly after 20-year-old Daunte Wright died from a police shooting Sunday afternoon in nearby Brooklyn Center. Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey said Monday that he had declared a state of emergency and announced a curfew of 7 p.m.

Almost immediately, Omar, who is also a Muslim, complained that the curfew might interfere with other Muslims trying to observe the first day of Ramadan.

“My office reached out to the Minneapolis Mayor and Governor’s offices to urge them to include an exemption to the curfew this evening for travel to and from Ramadan activities/prayer services,” Omar tweeted.

“The Governor’s Executive Order was just announced with that exemption so that folks are able to observe the first night of Taraweeh this evening without fear of arrest,” she added in a second tweet.

Wright had been pulled over by police who discovered that he had an outstanding arrest warrant. When they attempted to arrest him, he broke loose and jumped back into his vehicle. An officer shot him as he tried to drive away. Wright was able to drive away, but then later crashed into another vehicle. Wright died at the scene.

Police told reporters on Monday that the officer who shot and killed Wright believed that she was holding a Taser and not a gun. The police released the bodycam video that showed the officer yelling, “Taser! Taser! Taser!” before she shot.

Some complained to Omar that it was unfair to allow Muslims to avoid the curfew while others were not allowed to protest against the police.

The death of Wright increased tensions already at a height over the trial of Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer who kneeled on the neck of George Floyd who died in police custody.

Haley for trump 2024 Intelwars Nikki haley 2024 Nikki haley maga Nikki haley trump 2024 Nikki haley vs trump Trump 2024

Nikki Haley says she won’t run for president if Trump runs again in 2024

Nikki Haley, the former South Carolina governor, told reporters that she would not run for president in 2024 if former President Donald Trump decided to run again.

“I would not run if President Trump ran, and I would talk to him about it,” Haley said on Monday when asked directly at a media briefing at South Carolina State University.

“That’s something that we’ll have a conversation about at some point if that decision is something that has to be made. I had a great working relationship with him, I appreciated the way he let me do my job,” she explained.

“I thought we did some fantastically great foreign policy things together, and look I just want to keep building on what we accomplished,” Haley added.

Haley, who also served as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations under the former Trump administration, had previously criticized Trump for inciting supporters to riot Jan. 6 at the U.S. Capitol, an accusation he denies.

“We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said after the lethal riot.

“He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him,” she added. “And we can’t let that ever happen again.”

Haley was asked if she had talked to the president since the Jan. 6 riot and she said that she had not. But she also said that she would support his 2024 campaign if he chose to run.

Trump has teased his audiences about the possibility that he might run again in 2024 for president. His supporters have touted polls that show a large measure of support for Trump among Republican Party members. Even one of his greatest critics Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) said that Trump would win the nomination if he ran for president in 2024.

Here’s the video of Nikki Haley’s comments:

Alexandria ocasio-cortez Aoc and the squad Aoc vs pelosi Intelwars Nancy pelosi vs aoc Nancy pelosi vs progressives Pelosi vs ocasio cortez

New biography claims Nancy Pelosi mocked AOC and her ‘Squad,’ fumed that Obama took all the credit

A new biography of Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) claims that the House speaker mocked Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and her progressive “Squad” members of Congress. The book also said that Pelosi privately fumed that former President Barack Obama took all the credit for himself.

Pelosi, 81, is said to have mimicked a childlike voice when she ridiculed the socialist democrat and three other female members of Congress who are ideologically aligned with AOC’s agenda.

“You’re not a one-person show. This is the Congress of the United States,” Pelosi reportedly told them.

The account comes from the book titled, “Madam Speaker: Nancy Pelosi and the Lessons of Power.” Axios obtained excepts from the book and described the contents.

In the book, Pelosi is sad to have bristled at Obama for taking all the credit for reforms passed during his two terms. She was also reportedly angry that Obama was unable to obtain the support of his home state of Illinois to pass Obamacare.

If the account is accurate, it wouldn’t be the first time that Pelosi lashed out at the leaders of the far left progressive wing of the Democratic Party. In April 2019, Pelosi laughed off the influence of AOC and her fellow progressive colleagues by mocking their reliance on social media.

“While there are people who have a large number of Twitter followers,” Pelosi said at the time, “what’s important is that we have large numbers of votes on the floor of the House.”

In July 2019, Fox News reported that a senior Democratic source privately bashed Ocasio-Cortez.

“Her peers do not take her seriously,” the source said to Fox. “They think it is absurd to call the speaker racist. Offensive and absurd.”

Here’s more on the feud between Nancy Pelosi and the AOC squad:

Celebs at mar-a-lago Celebs support trump Intelwars Mar-a-lago celebrities Sylvester stallone maralago Sylvester stallone trump Trump celebrities

Liberals lash out at actor Sylvester Stallone over report that he joined Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club

Iconic action movie actor Sylvester Stallone reportedly joined the Mar-a-Lago private club owned by former President Donald Trump and liberals online wasted no time in lashing out at him over it.

Page Six reported that a source at the club told them Stallone had joined and was seen taking photos with others at the club.

The 74-year-old actor had just purchased a luxury $35 million home in Palm Beach, where the club is located, in December.

Critics of Trump took to Twitter to mock and ridicule the actor for what they saw as a tacit sign of support for the former president.

“So, Stallone can ignore multiple, credible sexual assault accusations. Okay then. He can f*** right off,” tweeted author Kimberley Johnson.

“Seeing Sylvester Stallone join The Former Guy’s club proves once and for all that he did his own stunts and has the brain damage to prove it,” said Chris Hahn.

“What a disappointment Sylvester Stallone turned out to be… Joining Trumps Mar a Lago Club? He clearly has received too many punches to the head,” tweeted another user.

“Sylvester Stallone watches Donald Trump incite a terrorist attack upon our nation and now wants to support Trump even more,” said Muslim comedian Dean Obeidallah.

“We JUST watched the original Rocky and mused about how brilliant it is. The ultimate underdog tale. Now THIS garbage. Do you even remember your roots? Bloviated, privileged a-hole giving money to that orange baboon who continues to undermine democracy. Poser. Get lost,” tweeted another user.

In February, Stallone and his family attended a Super Bowl party at Trump’s West Palm Beach golf club with the former president making an appearance and eating dinner before leaving at halftime.

Here’s a view inside Mar-a-Lago from 2 years ago:

Anti-asian attack Anti-asian sentiment Asian chamber denver racist Asian-american attacks Greenwood villager racism Intelwars Racism against asians

Asian Chamber of Commerce demands apology from Denver newspaper over April Fools prank they say is racist

The Asian Chamber of Commerce in Denver demanded that a local newspaper apologize over an April Fools prank column that they said was racist and could fuel anti-Asian hate crimes.

The column in the Greenwood Villager newspaper jokingly suggested that a theme park was being planned in the area but it made references to Wuhan, China, where the coronavirus is believed to have originated.

“America’s Largest Amusement Park Heads to Greenwood Village,” read the headline.

“The astonishing announcement of a new 13-acre amusement park coming to the vacant land adjacent to the Landmark towers is now revealed to the public,” it read.

“Because if the recent Asian alleged hate crimes, the planning commission and council have moved quietly through confidential Zoom meetings with Chinese officials to complete the contract,” the article continued. “Several city planners traveled to Wuhan, China to work out the details that include bringing over 1000 Chinese workers and their families to the area for the two-year construction period.”

In a later part of the article, the newspaper said that hotels were preparing for the Asian workers.

“Area hotels are being contracted for lower rates for the Chinese families and adding more rice, vegetables and chopsticks to their morning breakfasts,” it read.

Board member Clarence Low told KMGH-TV that the satirical article was offensive to Asians.

“Calling out Asians and calling out any race or ethnic group in in the interest of a comedy or satire is wholly inappropriate. It just continues to elevate this fear mongering and anti-Asian-phobia,” said Low.

“We are not a punchline. No ethnic group should be a punchline to any satirical article,” he added.

The Villager released a statement on Friday explaining that the article “was by no means intended to insult or offend anyone, especially the Asian community.”

The statement added, “In light of recent events and attacks on Asians, the paper sincerely regrets any insensitivities in the April Fools spoof.”

Chicken express attack Drive thru attack Drive thru disagreement Drive thru fight Intelwars Leskel nichols fight Video chicken express attack

Video shows Chicken Express employee launch out of drive-thru window to assault customer over alleged discount dispute

A customer at a “Chicken Express” drive-thru restaurant is suing after he says one of their employees launched through their window to attack him over a dispute about a discount.

And it was all caught on video.

The unappetizing incident was captured a the Chicken Express in Dallas, Texas, according to the Daily Post USA.

Leskel Nichols said through his attorney that he received a wrong order at the Chicken Express on March 10. When he complained, he says that Chester Harris, an employee, told him he could have a 50% discount on his next order.

Nichols said that when he returned later and tried to redeem the order from employee Christina Johnson, she refused to honor the discount.

He says that Harris spoke to him but a third employee, Terry Hall, decided to give him a knuckle sandwich instead.

The video shows an employee climb through the drive-thru window and grab at Nichols through his vehicle window. Another arm appears from inside the restaurant to grab at the employee.

Then another employee appears from behind to try to break up the fight, but she gets hit in the jaw by Nichols as he swings from inside his vehicle.

Nichols drives off after having some more words with the employee. There is no audio of the altercation in the video.

Nichols says that he sustained numerous injuries as a result of the fracas and that his car was damaged.

Nichols is being represented by the Johnny Cochran Law Firm.

Climate summit Cop26 greta thunberg boycott Greta thunberg boycott of climate summit Greta thungberg climate summit Intelwars Unequal vaccinations Vaccine inequality

Greta Thunberg is boycotting the climate summit because of ‘vaccine nationalism’

Greta Thunberg says that she will not attend the next global climate summit because the inequality of vaccine distribution means not all countries will be represented equally.

The teenage climate activist said the (Conference of the Parties) COP26 summit planned in Glasgow, Scotland in November, will have unequal representation from countries that have less access to vaccines.

“Of course I would love to attend the Glasgow COP26. But not unless everyone can take part on the same terms,” Thunberg said in a tweet.

“Right now many countries are vaccinating healthy young people, often at the expense of risk groups and front line workers (mainly from global south, as usual…),” she continued.

“Inequality and climate injustice is already the heart of the climate crisis. If people can’t be vaccinated and travel to be represented equally that’s undemocratic and would worsen the problem,” she said in a second tweet.

Thunberg also called for the summit to be postponed until global vaccinations rise.

“We don’t have to wait for conferences nor anyone or anything else to dramatically start reducing our emissions. Solidarity and action can start today,” she added, before noting lamentably that digital access was also limited in many countries and unequally distributed.

Thunberg attended the United Nations COP25 climate change summit in Madrid in 2019 and excoriated world leaders for ignoring her calls to massively change global industries in order to slow down climate change.

“We have been striking now for over a year, and still basically nothing has happened,” Thunberg said. “The climate crisis is still being ignored by those in power.”

Thunberg might get some help for her campaign from President Joe Biden who signed back onto the Paris Climate Accords after former President Donald Trump removed the U.S. from the pact. Biden has also promised to do more to transform industry in the U.S. to fit with climate change demands.

Here’s more about Thunberg’s campaign:

Alabama amazon rejects union Amazon union fails Amazon vs the unions Intelwars Union campaign Unionization of amazon Unions target amazon

Union forces were hoping to win over workers at Alabama Amazon — they got obliterated

Pro-union forces were hoping to start a national tide of unionization with a victory at an Amazon factory in Bessemer, Alabama, but workers instead dealt a decisive blow to their campaign.

The vote to unionize the plant was halfway over on Thursday evening when pro-unionists were already admitting defeat and crying foul.

By Friday, the final count was 1,798 ballots against unionization, and only 738 ballots for unionization.

Stuart Appelbaum, the president of the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU), said that the organization would challenge the results to the National Labor Relations Board after accusations that Amazon intimidated workers through the use of a mailbox.

“Amazon worked very very hard to get a very strange mailbox installed on their property and insisted that people vote at that box,” said Appelbaum.

He also said that workers had a real fear of losing their jobs if they voted for the union.

Robert Reich, the economist for the former Clinton administration, was among those voices decrying the alleged unfairness.

“Amazon’s egregious anti-union campaign prevailed,” tweeted Reich.

“The company prevented its Bessemer, Alabama warehouse workers from forming a union. This was the most blatant and appalling anti-union blitz I’ve ever see in my 74 years on this earth.”

But others defended the vote and ridiculed those complaining about the election and blaming a mailbox for the loss.

“Nobody really believes this — although many will pretend to, and it may be sufficient to gain the RWDSU a sympathetic audience with the NLRB. It is patently absurd. It is conspiracy theory–level thinking,” wrote Charles Cooke at National Review.

“It is sore-loserism. It is pathetic,” he added. “The union lost this drive by two-to-one. It did not do so because one of the voting options included the use of a USPS mailbox.”

Amazon released a statement applauding their employees for refusing the union effort and denying any intimidation on their part.

It’s easy to predict the union will say that Amazon won this election because we intimidated employees, but that’s not true. Our employees heard far more anti-Amazon messages from the union, policymakers, and media outlets than they heard from us. And Amazon didn’t win—our employees made the choice to vote against joining a union.

Pro-union advocates are putting their hopes in President Joe Biden supporting passage of the Pro Act in Congress. The Pro Act is legislation aimed at greatly increasing the power of unions to force employees to join and fund their efforts.
