'The Mandalorian' star booted from film studio after social media post

'The Mandalorian' star booted from film studio after social media post | 10 Feb 2021 | The studio behind "The Mandalorian" says it's severed ties with star Gina Carano, following a series of "abhorrent" social media posts from the actress. "Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future," the production company said in a Wednesday night statement to ITK. "Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable." In an Instagram story post a day earlier, Carano, who played Cara Dune on the Disney Plus "Star Wars" spin-off, reportedly compared the current political climate to Nazi Germany. [The irony seems to have escaped the "corporate-Woke" morons at Lucasfilm: When Carano was fired, she had proven her point. --LRP]

Tuberville were not made by me. They're not accurate, and they're contrary to fact. I move pursuant to Rule 16 that they be stricken from the record," Lee said.

"Even in January, that was a given, as many as 10,000 National Guard troops were told to be on the ready by the Secretary of Defense" Meadows said. "That was a direct order from President Trump and yet here is what we see...all kinds of blame going around but yet not a whole lot of accountability."

Michigan Senator Mike Shirkey Thinks Capitol Riot Was 'Staged,' Mitch McConnell Was 'Part of It'

Michigan Senator Mike Shirkey Thinks Capitol Riot Was 'Staged,' Mitch McConnell Was 'Part of It' | 09 Feb 2021 | Michigan Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey said in a recent conversation that "Trump people" weren't responsible for the riot at the U.S. Capitol and that people "wanted a mess" ahead of the violence. Shirkey's comments were recorded in a video that was posted on YouTube after he met with members of the Hillsdale County Republican Party. The local GOP group later voted to censure him for not supporting former President Donald Trump enough and for failing to stand up to Governor Gretchen Whitmer with regard to the Second Amendment and COVID-19 restrictions. The conversation began as a meeting about his upcoming censure but turned attention to the Capitol riot. When asked "What about the D.C. thing?" Shirkey called it a "hoax from day one." "Why wasn't there more security?" Shirkey asked. "It was ridiculous. It was all staged." Shirkey called Washington, D.C, Mayor Muriel Bowser a "puppet" and blamed Senator Mitch McConnell for being "part of it" because he said he was involved in the decision-making process about security. "I think they wanted to have a mess," Shirkey said, adding that the "mess" was partially attributable to people who were recruited to participate and to those who got "caught up" in the emotion of being in a mob.

New York Adds Over 1,500 Coronavirus Fatalities to Long-Term Care Death Toll - Report

New York Adds Over 1,500 Coronavirus Fatalities to Long-Term Care Death Toll - Report | 08 Feb 2021 | New York State reportedly added over 1,500 coronavirus-related fatalities to its long-term care facility virus death toll, the Empire Center for Public Policy reported Sunday. The total number of long-term care facility deaths linked to the Chinese coronavirus "jumped by another 1,516" as the state continues to update its numbers following last month’s bombshell report from New York Attorney General Letitia James. The report found that Gov. Andrew Cuomo's (D) administration vastly undercounted the number of nursing home deaths "by as much as 50 percent." As the Empire Center for Public Policy detailed, reported deaths in New York's long-term care facilities have jumped 63 percent in the last ten days alone [probably from the COVID vaccines], although the Cuomo administration maintains that the changes do not affect the overall coronavirus death toll.

Reparations to descendants of slaves is right if it comes from the descendants of slaveholders, whether white or black

Reparations to descendants of slaves is right if it comes from the descendants of slaveholders, whether white or black By CLG Founder, Michael Rectenwald | 08 Feb 2021 | Calls for reparations to blacks in America are based on the notion of collective white guilt. But collective guilt is a false notion and would violate the property rights of those whose ancestors gained nothing from slavery. Now that the Democratic Party has control of both houses of Congress and the presidency, calls for reparations, like those by Ta-Nehisi Coates, or more recently, the Contract With Black America touted by the rapper Ice Cube, will no doubt be given a serious hearing. Ice Cube is set to meet with Biden soon, likely before Black History Month ends. The question is: what are the merits of the case for reparations? Should all whites be forced to pay black Americans for the crimes of slavery? ...But the arguments for reparations are not made on the basis of property rights. Instead, they are based on collective white guilt, on the 'crime' of being born with white skin. This notion of collective guilt would cause all whites to be penalized and robbed of property that has no connection with slavery.

Gates/Big Pharma troll Zuckerberg on the warpath over deadly COVID vaccines: Facebook to take down posts with 'false claims' about vaccines | 08 Feb 2021 | Facebook said Monday it will remove posts that spread "false" information about "COVID-19 vaccines and vaccines in general."

"A weird thing happened right after the Nov. 3 election: nothing," Time national political correspondent Molly Ball began her report... According to Ball, the "second odd thing" that happened after the election was that "corporate America turned on" Trump. It was all very, very strange... Within days after the election, we witnessed an orchestrated effort to anoint the winner, even while many key states were still being counted," Ball quoted Trump as saying Dec. 2. Prominent social media users reacted to the report with alarm. "According to Time the election was 'Fortified' but not rigged. Definitely not rigged," Donald Trump Jr. reacted. "This is insanity, but everyone should read to learn exactly how bad it was." "@Time comes right out and admits it," wrote Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo. "Dear God, did they just validate what Trump was saying the whole time??" asked journalist Andray Domise.
