Zero Hedge: “Showbiz”, “Gimmick”: Pelosi, Obama Dismiss Biden’s Push To Suspend Federal Gas Tax Into Midterms … My local radio talk guy figured it out yesterday and it comes out to less than 20 cents/gallon. It will not stop the price of a gallon of gas from rising. So, if you are paying $5, $6, $7 a gallon it will only add up to a few dollars off your filled tank. And the prices will continue to go up because some people will have a false sense of savings and there will be a run on gas stations, and the gas supply will decrease … and the prices increase.

Victoria Taft: The Bipartisan Gun Bill Is Every Bit as Bad as We Warned You It Would Be

J.J. Sefton @ AoSHQ:

Wednesday and is it just me or does it seem as if we have absolutely zero representation in government? Meh, why even ask that question when I have been asserting since January 6th, 2021 that we no longer even have a government. Our lives and everything we’ve worked for and played by the rules to build, achieve and try to leave as a legacy for our children is being destroyed and stolen by politicians who embody the perfect storm of zero morality, zero empathy, and most dangerous of all, essentially zero accountability in legal or political terms.

I don’t need to go into the motivations of the tyrannical evil that is the Democrat-Left. To paraphrase that old song, “If you don’t know them by now,” etc. And then, there’s the GOP…

Case in point is John Cornyn. After being greeted by an auditorium of jeers, boos and catcalls for his eagerness to join the Democrats (I use the word “join” as a placeholder since he never was separate from them) to grab our guns, and with Texas about to be swamped by a fresh invasion of hundreds of thousands if not millions more illegal aliens, both resulting in an indigenous Latino population fleeing Democrats, what does John Cornyn do?

Read the whole thing.

#WOOOOOOOKE Goose Meets Gander…

Hey, for these last 2 years conservative folks who have refused to vax, refused to use “pronouns” for themselves or others, refused to submit and bow to racial shaming, and in general not partake in the neo-fascism of the #WOKE movement have been fired. A prime example is recently sworn-in new American citizen and pro-American, anti-communist China and pro-human rights Enes Kanter Freedom who is a far better basketball player (and activist) than Colin Kaepernick was a football quarterback or a ‘civil rights’ activist.
