Don’t try Bullying Justice Thomas

Justice Clarence Thomas says the Supreme Court will not “be bullied” by pro-abortion activists protesting the Court’s expected overturn of Roe v. Wade.

“We are becoming addicted to wanting particular outcomes, not living with the outcomes we don’t like,” Thomas said during a judicial conference in Atlanta, Georgia.

“We can’t be an institution that can be bullied into giving you just the outcomes you want,” he added. “The events from earlier this week are a symptom of that.”

“Thomas, one of the court’s most conservative members, spoke just hours after militant pro-choice activists doxxed him and five other Supreme Court justices over their reported plans to turn abortion law-making over to Congress and state legislatures,” the New York Post reported.

“The federal government erected 8-foot non-scalable fences around the courthouse this week, where angry protesters gathered Monday night after a draft opinion suggesting the imminent overturn of the landmark 1973 decision — which declared abortion to be a constitutionally protected right — was leaked to the media,” the report added.

The Post continued: “The unprecedented publication of Justice Samuel Alito’s draft majority opinion was “absolutely appalling,” Chief Justice John Roberts said Thursday — but it sparked activists to call for the storming of Catholic churches on Mother’s Day and to plan demonstrations outside the justices’ homes.”

According to federal U.S. code 1507, any individual who “pickets or parades” with the “intent of interfering with, obstructing, or impeding the administration of justice, or with the intent of influencing any judge, juror, witness, or court officer” near a U.S. court or “near a building or residence occupied or used by such judge, juror, witness, or court officer” will be fined, or “imprisoned not more than one year, or both.”

Will you be targeted by the IRS!

One of the key elements of President Biden’s failed Build Back Better plan was to spend $80 billion over the next ten years on the Internal Revenue Service: a sum that would have nearly doubled the agency’s annual budget. While that plan eventually died, the goal to significantly beef up the IRS hasn’t died with it.

In 2023 the agency will spend about $14.1 billion on all functions. Of that, just $3.684 billion will be dedicated to taxpayer services, while $6.274 billion will be spent on enforcement. That includes audits, investigations, and collection actions. The agency will hire another 3,800 enforcement officers — auditors, in particular — which nears a 10 percent increase from 2021.

The Treasury Department claims that the increase in “robust” enforcement activity will not affect anyone earning less than $400,000 per year.

But how likely is this? Whatever Treasury may say, it is not unreasonable to suspect that a significant proportion of this extra enforcement will target small-business owners and low-income taxpayers.

How can this be? Isn’t it the wealthiest who are doing the cheating? That’s certainly what the IRS would have you believe; if it were true, the thinking goes, the broader public would likely be more willing to get on board with the idea of turning the dogs loose on the richest 1 percent who apparently aren’t paying their “fair share.”

The truth, however, is that small-business owners and self-employed people will always be key targets of IRS enforcement, enhanced or otherwise. That is because the IRS believes that small-business owners cheat on their taxes — virtually across the board. In the IRS’s opinion, small businesses are the primary contributors to the so-called tax gap: the estimated difference between the tax legally owed and what is actually paid. Estimates place that figure at about $390 billion annually.

In September 2019, the IRS released a research report in which it claimed that almost half of the tax gap is attributable to self-employed people and small corporations, even though they account for about only 15 percent of all tax returns filed. Though the report was drafted under the Trump administration, this remains the IRS’s philosophy, because it was written by the career bureaucrats who populate federal-government agencies and rarely (if ever) change with administrations. Proof of this lies in a September 2021 article written by the Treasury Department’s Natasha Sarin.

WTH is a TransSPECIES ? Help Me?

In May thousands of people watched a documentary called The Secret Life of the Human Pups. The film accompanied Spot and friends (men who dress as dogs) as they travelled to a beauty pageant. Its appearance came just a couple of months after the publication of Being a Beast, a book in which veterinarian/barrister Charles Foster describes living in the wild as a badger, fox and stag. The protagonists of film and book may have little in common but they share a desire to escape the narrowness of being human.

People who identify as other than human have been described (and describe themselves as ‘animal-people’, ‘lycanthropes’, ‘therianthropes’   and, most recently, ‘otherkin’. Together they have a history stretching back to antiquity: witness the fabulous beasts which embellish the margins of medieval manuscripts. It was in the course of researching the role of monsters and monstrosity in Renaissance Europe, and the ‘animalesque’ affinities of 16th-century Portuguese witches, prosecuted by the Catholic Inquisition, that researcher Pedro Feijó (MPhil History and Philosophy of Science) decided to lean into the worlds of those who, half a millennium later, inhabit the borders of animality and the margins of humanness.

Feijó embarked on an exploration of people who are more, or other, than human – and how such people have been perceived and treated by those around them. “We have witnessed, in the last half a century, an explosion of politics grounded on new identities, and on their overcoming. People have been experimenting with and transgressing the limits of what it means to be a woman, of what it means to have a gender, a sex, or a sexual orientation,” Feijó says.

“Across the western world, individuals and collectives are defying our identity as organic beings, in contrast with mechanical ones, and exploring cyborgism. Social movements of trans and disabled people started questioning what it means exactly to be an able body. The neuro-diverse and BIID (Body Integrity Identity Disorder – people who would prefer to be ‘disabled’) have followed in the same footsteps. I thought it would be worth exploring the worlds of those who clash with one central dichotomy: humanity and non-human animality.”

Feijó’s essay Doctors Herding Cats: The Misadventures of Modern Medicine and Psychology with NonhuMan Identities offers a fascinating insight into questions of identity and how they have been mediated. There is no shortage of tales and testimonies about people becoming animals. “The Biblical King Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, roamed the land for seven years as an ox and countless other tales turn on human to animal transformations,” writes Feijó. “During the 18th century, accounts of lycanthropy were left behind as the European Enlightenment movement classified them as irrational and obscure. But people who belong to a kind other than the human seem to have sprung from the blind spots of modernity, and have grown strong and visible for the last four decades.”

Biden is failing on border!

GRA030 MELILLA, 22/10/2014.- Agentes de Policía junto a algunos de los ochenta inmigrantes que están encaramados desde primera hora a la valla de Melilla, fronteriza con Marruecos, tras el último intento de entrar en la ciudad autonóma protagonizado por varios centenares de subsaharianos, algunos de los cuales, al menos una docena, ha conseguido superar el vallado perimetral. EFE/Francisco G. Guerrero

Seventy-four percent of Americans say the Biden administration is not equipped to handle the expected surge in illegal border crossings should it end Title 42, a pandemic-era border restriction put in place by the Trump administration early in the coronavirus pandemic that allows U.S. border officials to turn away migrants who have reached the U.S., according to a CNN poll released Wednesday.

Biden administration plans to end Title 42 in late May, a decision for which it has faced heavy criticism from both Republicans and Democrats as it will likely lead to a surge in crossings.

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on Sunday acknowledged that as many as 18,000 migrants could cross the southern border once the policy is lifted.

“Title 42 is a public health authority. So what we started to do in September of last year was prepare for its end. … We’re not projecting 18,000, but what we do in the department is we plan for different scenarios, so we’re ready for anything,” Mayorkas said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

When pressed by host Dana Bash whether the U.S. would be able to handle the surge, Mayorkas said his department would be prepared but acknowledged that the system would be under “extraordinary strain.”

“It is our responsibility to be prepared for different scenarios, and that is what we are doing, and we have incredibly talented and dedicated people. There is no question if in fact we reach that number, that is going to be an extraordinary strain on our system,” Mayorkas said.

“That is why the plan we have prepared calls for a number of different actions, not just in the domestic arena but also with our partners in the south,” he continued.

The survey was conducted by SSRS from April 28 through May 1 among a random national sample of 1,007 adults. Results for the full sample have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.9 percentage points.

Prayer Proclamation no God!

President Biden’s official proclamation for “National Day of Prayer” discussed climate change, atheists, and touted how his administration is saving lives, creating jobs and giving hope to America.

The following is Biden’s National Day of Prayer proclamation:

Throughout our history, prayer has been an anchor for countless Americans searching for strength and wisdom in times of struggle and sharing hope and gratitude in seasons of joy.  In public reflections on life’s many blessings and in quiet moments during life’s most difficult trials, Americans of nearly every background and faith have turned to prayer for comfort and inspiration.  Prayer is a sacred right protected by free speech and religious liberty enshrined in our Constitution, and it continues to lift our spirits as we navigate the challenges of our time.

On this day, we recognize the healing power of prayer, especially as we recover from the trauma and loss of the COVID‑19 pandemic.  Today we find ourselves in a moment of renewal — of lives saved, of new jobs created, and of new hope for rebuilding America.  Today is also a moment of reflection when we are called to address some of the greatest challenges humanity has ever faced — saving our planet from the existential threat of climate change; responding to attacks on democracy at home and abroad; and living up to our Nation’s promise of liberty, justice, and equality for all.

As the late President Dwight D. Eisenhower once said, “There is a need we all have in these days and times for some help which comes from outside ourselves.”  Across our diverse and cherished beliefs, on this National Day of Prayer, no matter how or whether we pray, we are all called to look outside ourselves.  Let us find in our hearts and prayers the determination to put aside our differences, come together, and truly see one another as fellow Americans.

The Congress, by Public Law 100-307, as amended, has called on the President to issue each year a proclamation designating the first Thursday in May as a “National Day of Prayer.”

NOW, THEREFORE, I, JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR., President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim May 5, 2022, as a National Day of Prayer.  I call upon the citizens of our Nation to give thanks, in accordance with their own faiths and consciences, for our many freedoms and blessings, and I invite all people of faith to join me in asking for God’s continued guidance, mercy, and protection.

There is a war on Kitchen Appliances

If President Biden’s climate czar has her way, Americans will washing dishes by hand and drying their laundry on a clothes line.

Climate advisor Gina McCarthy is waging a war on your appliances.

In 2015, then-EPA Administrator McCarthy called out washing machines and dryers as the biggest energy users in American households.

The other day she told an audience at Tufts College the administration is implementing dozens of new rules on kitchen appliances.

“We’re actually going to do 100 rules this year alone on appliances,” she boasted to the crowd. “Just like you asked.”

This is the same person – who last year – said there needed to be a crackdown on refrigerators.

This is what the Green New Deal is going to look like in real life.

Americans will soon be scrubbing out stains on a washboard and cooling food in an ice box.

Thanks to the Biden Administration, the border has been overrun, gas prices are at an all-time high, inflation is the worst in 40 years, and now — Americans are about to suffer from an outbreak of dishpan hands.

What happens when you suggest killing a SCOTUS Justice?

NOTHIN! absolutely nothing UNLESS you are a conservative and suggest killing a liberal justice!

A journalist who resigned over “unwise” tweets took to Twitter to wish death upon Supreme Court Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito over Roe v. Wade.

“Interesting real life trolley problem in America now,” Simon Gwynn, tweeted. “If you had the chance to kill Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito, the two oldest right wing Supreme Court judges, should you do it while Biden can get his nominees to replace them confirmed?”

“It’s interesting as an abstract question but becomes a real conundrum if, say, you’re terminally ill and have little to lose yourself, but know that it could save many women’s lives in the future,” Gwynn added.

Gwynn deleted the tweets Thursday because they were “pretty irresponsible,” but he said he didn’t think they violated Twitter’s terms of service.

“FYI I don’t endorse murdering anyone, but don’t think there’s anything wrong with thought experiments,” Gwynn said.

Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito canceled a public appearance Thursday after his opinion draft was published by Politico earlier this week.

Americans are split on court packing! WHY?

Americans in Harvard Square shared their thoughts on whether the Supreme Court needed additional justices after Sen. Elizabeth Warren called for packing the high court in response to the leaked draft decision that indicated Roe v. Wade would be overturned.

“If they can stop what’s about to happen, yes,” one man, Max, told Fox News. “Pack the courts as much as you need to to stop this overturning.”

Warren joined her fellow Democrats in renewed calls to pack the Supreme Court following the leaked draft.

“Right-wing extremists have hijacked the Supreme Court of the United States,” the Massachusetts senator tweeted Wednesday. “We must #ExpandTheCourt to rebalance it and defend our basic rights, including the constitutional right to an abortion.”

But pedestrians in Boston had mixed views.

“I think that’d cause a lot of extra issues,” one man, Emilio, said. “With the instability of everything right now, I think it’s better to kind of keep it the same right now and fix a lot of the other problems.”

Tori told Fox News: “More opinions are better on everything.”

Justice Samuel Alito wrote in the draft, which Politico published Monday night, that states should have authority over abortion laws, since the issue isn’t addressed in the Constitution. Chief Justice John Roberts emphasized on Tuesday that the decision wasn’t final.

“Overturning Roe would put the lives of women across the country at risk,” Rep. Ilhan Omar tweeted Monday when she called for expanding the court. “It would fly in the face of decades of precedent and the overwhelming majority of public opinion.”

Americans AINT gonna put up with mask mandates!

Tourists visiting the Big Apple told Fox News it should be a personal choice whether anyone wears masks on public transportation.

“It’s not what the people want,” Mark, who was visiting from California, told Fox News. “The majority of people I believe are against that decision to appeal” and reinstate the mask mandate.

A federal judge on Monday blocked the mandate requiring masks on public transportation. Some public transit systems, airlines and ride-sharing services quickly lifted their own mask mandates.

The Department of Justice, at the request of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, appealed the decision. The mandate “remains necessary for public health,” the CDC said in its request.

Dina and Trish, who were visiting from Zachary, Louisiana, both said they opposed the Biden administration’s appeal. Trish called it a “manipulation tactic” and said the government wanted “more control.”

Mark similarly said “controlling people” is part of the Biden administration’s agenda.

John, visiting from Boston, said the decision to appeal was “absurd.”

“To have this one-size-fits-all ruling is so simplistic,” John said. “It’s mind-boggling.”

Teriana, who was visiting from Minnesota, said everyone should “be respectful to everyone’s opinions” about whether they want to wear a mask.

“If you feel uncomfortable with other people not wearing a mask, then that’s okay,” she told Fox News. “You can wear your own mask or you could stay home. If you don’t want to wear a mask that’s okay too.”

But the New York tourists are in the minority, according to recent polling. An Ipsos survey conducted immediately after the mask mandate was lifted reported that 76% of adults supported mask requirements on airplanes and in airports.

Mark said mask mandates should be considered on public transit relative to the severity of COVID-19 at that time.

“Today, it seems like it’s each person’s personal choice,” Mark, who said he wore a mask on the subway to be safe, told Fox News. “If people have health issues, they can wear it.”

Why did we bother with Title IX to begin with?

Since 1972 Title IX has enjoyed wide support across the political spectrum for seeking to protect people based on biological sex, this is now being threatened with the introduction of a highly divisive and controversial issue.

This would permit anyone to identify as whatever sex they want, allowing people of the opposite sex in places like locker rooms, or allowing boys to compete on girl’s sporting teams.

Angela Plowhead, a US House Candidate in Oregon’s 6th congressional district, Air Force Veteran, and psychologist joins Joe to discuss the plan by the Biden Administration’s Department of Education to strongly enforce gender identity as part of Title IX, which is meant to prevent discrimination based on biological sex.

Dr. Plowhead began her career as a signals intelligence analyst with the U.S. Air Force. She earned an associates degree in applied science at the Community College of the Air Force, majoring in Communications Applications Technologies, then went on to earn her Bachelor of Science in Occupational Education from Wayland Baptist University with a major in human services and minors in business and communications applications technologies and an M.A. and Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology from George Fox University. She completed an internship at the Vanderbelt/VA consortium and a postdoctoral residency program at the Portland Veterans Administration (VA). She is a Clinical Psychologist with a specialty in Geropsychology.
