The Left Sucks The Joy Out Of EVERYTHING, And We’re Done *Open Thread* “UPDATED*

August 9, 2022

You know, like comedy, or sports, or the educational system, or the economy, or the Justice system, to name a few?!

While I will focus on a few of those mentioned above, you gotta admit, I am right about this. They just suck the joy out of it all. You can’t even watch big time comedians like Dave Chappelle, who just had a show canceled because a small gaggle of trans activists pitched a hissy fit.  What happened to the days of if you didn’t like someone’s brand of comedy, you just didn’t watch them?!?! Get a grip, people. Sheesh!

Or how about sports?? Now, those of you who are newer to this blog of KenoshaMarge’s and mine may not know that I was a HUGE NY Yankees fan. I mean, HUGE. The last time they won the World Series, I had what can only be described as a shrine to the Yankees on the buffet in the living room. I watched them religiously, often donning my Derek Jeter jersey, home or away, depending on where they were playing, when I watched games.

But then they went woke. First, in 2019, they dropkicked the Kate Smith version of, “God Bless America,” which they played during the seventh inning stretch after 9/11 because ONE anonymous called said she had recorded a “racist” song some 50 years prior, one also recorded by a very famous black singer, Paul Robeson. This one unnamed, unfaced person was able to get her rendition yanked out because she recorded what was then a popular song AGES before. People were LIVID about it, but too bad. That was the beginning of it.

The MLB essentially rearranged its letters and aligned itself with the Marxist, anti-American, anti-capitalist, RACIST, organization, BLM. You’d think AMERICA’S PASTTIME would not link arms with an anti-American Marxist group, but it surely did. And I gave up baseball.

It broke my heart. I was reminded in force when my pet sitters recorded an ESPN multi-episode series about The Captain, Derek Jeter. All the memories of watching the Yankees, especially playing the HATED Red Sox, the championships, the level of play, ESPECIALLY by Derek Jeter.

Then there is our “Justice” Department which is no longer about Justice. Just look at the latest news that came out about Hunter Biden, the China-Ukraine-Big Guy-dealing drug addled MAJOR national security risk son of the President. He continues to be under investigation for his dealings with these countries and the GAZILLIONS of dollars he has made from these two countries with the Big Guy getting his cut.

Looks like the First Son might be getting himself a Sweetheart PLEA DEAL. From the Washington Times:

“My bet is we are looking at a generous soft plea that is very favorable to Hunter Biden,” said Jim Trusty, a former Justice Department prosecutor. “The guilty plea is designed to end all inquiries into Hunter Biden’s financial activities. The story will be Hunter Biden had a drug addiction and made the mistakes.”

Jonathan Turley, a constitutional law professor at George Washington University, expects a guilty plea because emails, text messages, photos and other materials discovered on Hunter Biden’s laptop computer will make it difficult for prosecutors not to pursue charges.

He said a plea deal could include tax crimes and violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, or FARA. The obscure 1938 law requires anyone doing political or lobbying work on behalf of a foreign client or government to register with the Justice Department.

“Absent a sealed indictment or a decision to carry over to a new grand jury, a plea deal seems more likely,” Mr. Turley wrote in an email. “It is hard to believe that the DOJ would walk away from what appear to be obvious FARA violations and tax violations. A plea deal always seemed like the best case scenario for Hunter since his laptop left no question about an assortment of criminal acts.” […] (Click here to read the rest.)

It’s good to be the First Son. Regular Americans, like a number of those who walked through the Capitol Building, which was OPEN, on January 6, are STILL languishing in jail under HORRENDOUS circumstances. That’s what happens to normal citizens. But not to the elite Democrats.

That last one matters more than you might think. Just recently, a man threatening to assassinate US Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) was given a sentence of 6 – SIX- MONTHS home confinement. For threatening the life of a sitting US Representative.

Then there was the latest on the FBI and their “Radical Violent Extremist Symbols” list, that includes a NUMBER of historical, and important, depictions. FBI Director Christopher Wray, when questioned about this affront by Sen. Cruz claimed that there are supposed to be caveats to these symbols that more information is needed. For the BETSY ROSS FLAG????? Greg Gutfeld included Cruz’s questioning about this last week:

The FBI is targeting patriotic Americans and the symbols we revere as EXTREMISTS. It gets worse, which I will get to at the end of this post.

This is why Joy Pullman from The Federalist warns us that this is how we lose our Republic:

Put all of this against the systematic refusal of Democrat DAs, judges, and juries to prosecute people who openly engage in political violence from the left. In 2020, leftist rioters who coordinated across state lines and in far greater numbers and criminal activity than Jan. 6 attendees firebombed federal buildings, murdered people, looted, burned down downtowns, and assaulted police officers. Of course, essentially nobody involved in perpetrating the Spygate setup of an American president has been brought to justice, most recently including Michael Sussmann.

This summer, a leftist group has allegedly attacked two dozen pro-life maternal care centers in multiple states and a congressional office and promises to continue, but Wray couldn’t provide almost any information on alleged FBI investigations into it. Despite an assassination attempt on one Supreme Court justice this summer, the DOJ has still not filed charges against the people harassing and threatening justices and their families at their homes. U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland failed for weeks on end to enforce laws against such harassment of justices, creating the conditions for the aggression to intensify.

This is unacceptable, and Wray and Garland should be fired. They won’t be, though, and that’s the problem. […] (Click here to read the rest.)

Exactly right.

And too late.

Please tell me WHY Democrats want 87,000 new IRS agents?? As Sen. Cruz pointed out, that makes the IRS larger than the FBI, State Department, Pentagon, and Border Patrol COMBINED.

What should frighten you even more is that the IRS is stockpiling GUNS and AMMUNITION.

Ponder that one.

This all pales in comparison to the FBI raiding President Trump’s home in Mar-a-Lago. They swarmed his home even breaking into his safe. This is the former President of the United States. Who has committed NO crime.

We are officially a banana republic. The country that many of us grew up loving and swearing our allegiance to is no longer. I pray to God that we can get it back. This is a dark, dark day in the USA.

This is an Open Thread.
