Twitter Says No More Outright Bans

Personally, I’m not buying this. I think Twitter is just banking on Biden winning, and then it’s back to business as usual, or likely much worse.

No Lie: Guys Leaves his Wife for Ilhan Omar

Well, it just goes to show – there really is someone for everyone out there. Even an anti-Semitic hate-filled Islamist.

My husband dumped me for Ilhan Omar, DC mom says in divorce filing

A Washington, DC, mom says her political-consultant husband left her for Rep. Ilhan Omar, according to a bombshell divorce filing obtained by The Post.

Dr. Beth Jordan Mynett says her cheating spouse, Tim Mynett, told her in April that he was having an affair with the Somali-born US representative and that he even made a “shocking declaration of love” for the Minnesota congresswoman before he ditched his wife, alleges the filing, submitted in DC Superior Court on Tuesday.

The physician, 55, and her 38-year-old husband — who has worked for left-wing Democrats such as Omar and her Minnesota predecessor, Keith Ellison — have a 13-year-old son together. read more

NYC Spending $23 Million to Check Teachers’ Whiteness

New York City, like most cities run by leftists, is heavily and desperately in debt. They currently have approximately $58.5 billion in assets available to pay bills totaling $244 billion. In other words, that’s over $64,000 per NYC taxpayer. Yet this never seems to matter when implementing another idiotic leftist feel-good program.

I mean – what’s another $23 million, flushed down the proverbial toilet, to advance the social justice, liberal agenda.

from the New York Post:

Teachers allegedly told to favor black students in ‘racial equity’ training

In controversial “implicit bias” training, New York City’s public-school educators have been told to focus on black children over white ones — and one Jewish superintendent who described her family’s Holocaust tragedies was scolded and humiliated, according to firsthand accounts.

A consultant hired by the city Department of Education told administrators at a workshop that “racial equity” means favoring black children regardless of their socio-economic status, sources said. read more

Just Call Her Jihadi Val

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Ed Klein at the New York Post  reports that “Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett leaked to the press details of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail clinton31address during her time as secretary of state… But she did so through people outside the ¬administration, so the story couldn’t be traced to her or the White House.” Oops!

“Six separate probes into Hillary’s performance have been ¬going on at the State Department. I’m told that the e-mail scandal was timed to come out just as Hillary was on the verge of formally announcing that she was running for president — and that there’s more to come,” Klein reports.

Okay – I don’t normally pat myself on the back – but I called this one, actually telling someone a week ago that it was probably Jarrett who is trying bury Hillary Clinton, but is also most likely behind the potential toppling of long time Clinton buddy Rahm Emmanuel in Chicago, where Jarrett is from, and of course where Obama lived. I frankly think she is trying to kill off (figuratively) or at least tarnish everything Clinton. read more

Sharpton the Extortionist

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Has the media finally figure out who and what Al Sharpton is? It seems at least print media has, to some extent. Could it be that they finally figured out that Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and the rest are, and always have been racial blackmailers, selling protection to the highest bidder?

Well, it seems at least the New York Post  and the UK Daily Mail have come to this conclusion.

We conservatives have known this for a long time. We’ve known that Jackson and Sharpton sell corporate protection as the Mafia sells protection to their neighborhood shop owners.

We’ve all seen it in movies and television. One of the mob enforcers walks around to every business in the neighborhood, collecting “protection” money from struggling business owners. It’s hard work and quite labor-intensive.

Well, Jackson and Sharpton have perfected the art. Of course, they have a decided advantage over the mob. You see, they are black. Shocking, I know, but it’s true! read more

Jobs for the Disabled

by: the Common Constitutionalist

I don’t often listen to Sean Hannity, but a couple of days ago, for whatever reason I did.

He brought up a fascinating topic. He spoke of the rich Manhattan liberals who go to Disney World for vacation. No, that’s not the fascinating part.

Now anyone who has been to Disney knows of the interminably long lines at every ride and attraction.

These rich 1 percenters have evidently found a way around this problem. According to a report by Tara Palmeri of the New York Post, the rich Manhattanites found a “Black Market Disney guide” service. The service charges $130 an hour, or $1040 for an eight-hour day.

Okay, that’s pretty pricey. What does one get for that?

The $130 an hour will get you and up to five other family members to the front of any and every line. If one has the resources, that’s a great deal.

This achievement is virtually guaranteed through the services of the handicapped.

The family hires a handicapped person through a covert service to be a member of the family for an hour or several and voilà, front of the line.

Palmeri quoted one proud mother: “My daughter waited 1 min. to get on ‘It’s a Small World ’ – the other kids had to wait 2 1/2 hours.”

The disabled “family member” was hired through Dream Tours, Florida.

She added: “This is how the 1% does Disney”

The family, mom, dad, a one-year-old son and five-year-old daughter were ushered through the entire park on a motorized scooter sporting a handicapped sign.

Disney does offer a VIP package, a fast pass, but it can run between $310-$380 an hour.

Now the knee-jerk reaction is outrage and horror. I get that but this is the free market at work. You see a need and fill it.

On the surface it just seems so wrong, so exploitive. But let’s look at this from a practical standpoint. Unless these disabled people are indentured servants, which I’m sure they are not, they are being paid for their service.

And what service are they “forced” to perform? They accompany a rich family on vacation in the world’s most popular theme park. Man, what a crappy job.

Now consider the unemployment rate of the disabled. The published unemployment rate of the disabled is around 13%. So, I guarantee it’s much higher, and certainly a great deal more than that of the “abled”.

So I ask you? If you are disabled and unemployed and someone offers to pay you to accompany a family to a theme park or the mall or wherever the disabled are afforded an advantage, what do you do?

Do you reject the offer because you would be “exploited”? Oh, they’re taking advantage of the poor disabled person.

No, you take it. A job is a job. You are in fact providing a service someone is willing to pay for. No laws are being broken. I say the heck with the people who fail to really consider the situation. Would they rather have the disabled person unemployed, on welfare and food stamps, etc.?

Frankly, I think it’s genius.
