So is everyone on board now or is it still just the left and the far right that knows she needs to go?

Tesla on autopilot attacks tree
Two men perished inside a Tesla Model S that was zooming along a Texas roadway with no one behind the wheel — when the car crashed into a tree and sparked a massive fire.
The smash-up happened around 11:30 p.m. Saturday night in The Woodlands, a neighborhood in Houston, with the blaze continuing for four hours.
One of the men was found in the front passenger seat while the other was in the back seat, Harris County Constable Mark Herman told KHOU 11. The pricey automobile has an “autopilot” function, though it wasn’t immediately clear if it was in operation.
I kinda want to go wild west pimp style myself now. sounds kinda fun tbh. I just don't know how. Surely the mad Mommies have a pamphlet for that.

MARICOPA, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) – A couple in Maricopa woke up to their tires slashed and a severed finger in the driveway on Thursday morning.
“I literally have been laughing all day because if I don’t, I might cry,” said Francesca Wikoff.
The truck belongs to the Wikoff family. Wikoff, a former volunteer firefighter and EMT, has the stomach for this sort of thing. “It’s pretty comical. You would think that if you’re gonna go to the hospital, especially if you just severed your finger off, that you would take said finger with you,” said Wikoff.
Wikoff believes the tire slasher cut her back tire then cut his finger off on accident. “We assume it happened at 10:30 last night because we had our neighbor that lives next to him heard a loud scream and then a car speeding off,” said Wikoff.
The Maricopa mother believes the finger belongs to her neighbor because they argued with him the night before and a trail of blood leads to his house. “I don’t find joy in anybody hurting themselves. However, karma has a good way of working itself out,” said Wikoff.
The neighbor wasn’t home Thursday and Wikoff said he hasn’t been home all day. Arizona’s Family reached out to the Maricopa Police Department and haven’t heard back. Wikoff said no arrests have been made, only the finger so far has been taken in custody by police in a brown paper bag. “Well, I got the better hand,” said Wikoff.
And it’s only Thursday. Just think about ‘Florida Man Friday‘………
Florida driver blasts through a gate and successfully jumps an opening drawbridge.

Stupid? Yes. Dangerous? Yes.
Impressive? Channel your inner Randy Savage
Florida Man was ON THE GAS and his windshield was intact as he approached the gate arm
He blasted through the gate without a care in the world
“The drawbridge was not yet completely open,” you say?
And then he’s off into the sunset:
What was the source of his dogged determination to Dukes of Hazzard this drawbridge?
We’ll never know. But he set his mind to it and he did it.
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – A Chinese man was arrested for creating a fake U.S. Army unit and convincing immigrants that joining the squad was a path to citizenship, authorities said.
Yupeng Deng, 51, allegedly gave his recruits military uniforms, had them parade in a Los Angeles suburb and took them to the decommissioned USS Midway aircraft carrier, which is a museum in San Diego.
Deng charged more than 100 fellow Chinese nationals a fee of between $300 and $450 to join the fake Army unit, according to the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office.
He called his bogus squad the U.S. Army/Military Special Forces Reserve unit, or MSFR for short, and he gave himself the lofty title of supreme commander, prosecutors said.
Aside from telling recruits that belonging to the unit was a path to U.S. citizenship, Deng also urged them to pay him cash for higher military rank, according to prosecutors.
He also allegedly provided them with fake documents and phony military identification cards.
Deng, a resident of the Los Angeles suburb of El Monte, was arrested on Tuesday by sheriff’s deputies.
He was charged with theft by false pretenses, manufacturing deceptive government documents and counterfeit of an official government seal.
Deng faces up to eight years in prison if convicted. He is scheduled to be arraigned on Wednesday, and is being held on $500,000 bail.
Jane Robison, a spokeswoman for the District Attorney’s Office, declined to comment on how Deng was caught.
“All the details and evidence will come out in a preliminary hearing,” she said.
This is what you get in a nation that has no guarantee of rights.
LGBT activists sue Canadian pastor for preaching biblical sexuality
‘Our services are our services,’ the pastor said in response. ‘You don’t go into a bake shop and ask them to fix your car. Then you can’t come into a Christian church and expect us to convey messages that we don’t agree with.’
Back in 2019, I noted that the LGBT movement would methodically begin going after clergy for sermons. Most sermons and homilies are posted online; with laws that increasingly expand the definition of hate speech and sustained campaigns to portray Christian organizations at hate groups, it was only a matter of time before activists set to work trawling the hours of content hunting for any expression of heresy against LGBT orthodoxy. Any expression of the biblical view of sexuality and gender makes clergy a target.
The media is happy to help. In 2019, when a Catholic priest from Calgary was targeted for a homily in which he condemned the rainbow flag, the Toronto Star’s headline unabashedly sided with the activists: “Calgary priest under fire for homophobic remarks.”
Now, Pastor Terry Murphy of Victory Church in Regina, Saskatchewan, is under fire by LGBT activists for a March 6 online sermon defending biblical sexuality, in which he noted that today’s trans movement and the promotion of gender fluidity can be a form of child abuse.
President Joe Biden will hold his first press conference on March 25, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki confirmed on Tuesday.
The press conference will take place on his 64th day in office, making this the longest period in the 100 years that a new president has not held a solo meeting with the mess. According to Fox News, President Donald Trump held his first press conference 27 days into his presidency. President Barack Obama’s first presser was 20 days into his administration and President George Bush’s was in office for 33 days before his first press conference.
The news comes after the press repeatedly asked Psaki when Biden was planning to hold a press conference. The White House has used the pandemic to curb the number of reporters in the briefing room and requiring some reporters to submit questions prior to one of Psaki’s briefings, the New York Post reported.
Full disclosure: I was one of the those people who thought that the Democrats would have hit President Biden with a 25th Amendment coup by now. After a while I realized that they prefer having him in place and pulling his puppet strings. They type up the executive orders, tell Ol’ Gropes to sign them, and the dismantling of the Republic proceeds apace………….
There is something deliciously Biden-esque about the announcement coming so many days before the event. It’s like they are basically admitting that he needs a lot of prep time to take a few softball questions. We’re not really going to believe that the press corps is going to grill Biden with serious questions, are we? Maybe they’ll go the Obama route and ask him what he’s found most enchanting about the presidency so far.
No, America’s shame is that this president can’t string three sentences together without a month of practice. The press corps will be complicit in making sure that the event is something they can heap praise on Biden for later. Sadly, the bar is so low for him that if he simply manages to avoid chewing on his toes while he’s up there they’ll call it a success………..
TOKYO—It’s been said that if you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns—but that’s not true in Japan, which has some of the strictest laws on the books forbidding the possession of guns, and imposes even harsher penalties for using them. If you fire a gun at someone here, you’re likely to spend more than 20 years in jail. The severe penalties even deter the yakuza, Japan’s organized crime syndicates, from using firearms. In 2017, there were only three people killed by gunshots in the entire nation.
But human beings will always find ways to kill each other and, as it turns out, when you outlaw guns in Japan outlaws will resort to other deadly weapons—like crossbows.
Now, the Japanese government is considering banning most people from buying, selling, or owning these semi-automatic bow and arrows. After a series of horrific crimes using the weapons there are now pending revisions to Japan’s laws which will limit their usage to sports and tranquilizing animals. The new revisions are expected to be passed in the current session of the parliament.
- “U.S. intelligence shows that China has conducted human testing on members of the People’s Liberation Army in hope of developing soldiers with biologically enhanced capabilities,” wrote then Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, in a December 3 Wall Street Journal op-ed titled “China Is National Security Threat No. 1.”
- All these Chinese moves are meant to obtain “biological dominance.” “There are,” as Ratcliffe noted, “no ethical boundaries to Beijing’s pursuit of power.”
- The experiment evoked the eugenics program of the Third Reich to create a “master race.”
- Shenzhen’s He [Jenkui], after an international uproar caused by news of his dangerous and unethical work, was fined and jailed for “illegally carrying out human embryo gene-editing,” but in the Communist Party’s near-total surveillance state he obviously had state backing for his experiments…. Beijing’s prosecution of He, therefore, looks like an attempt to cool down the furor and prevent the international scientific community from further inquiry into China’s activities.
- “What is most disturbing about these endeavors is that China has gleaned access to CRISPR and advanced genetic and biotech research, thanks to their relationship with the United States and other advanced Western nations. American research labs, biotech investors, and scientists have all striven to do research and business in China’s budding biotech arena… because the ethical standards for research… are so low.” — Brandon Weichert, author of The Weichert Report and Winning Space, interview with Gatestone Institute, February 2021.
The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health announced new COVID-19 restrictions on restaurants now that the outdoor dining ban has been lifted that have people once again scratching their heads.
The Public Health Department is banning restaurants from having TVs on for their customers to watch programming while they are eating.
“Televisions or any other screens that are used to broadcast programming must be removed from the area or turned off. This provision is effective until further notice,” the order states. It appears the order was created to curtail gatherings at restaurants for the upcoming Super Bowl LV, which will pit the Kansas City Chiefs against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on February 7.
The LA County Health Officer Order has been updated to allow outdoor dining at restaurants, breweries and wineries, effective today, January 29, with the following new protocols in place: https://t.co/utgwHgG9Ub pic.twitter.com/uPv7wJMqOB

You simply can not make this up.
‘the hits just keep coming’
By this standard, even Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous maxim in his “I Have a Dream” speech — asking to be judged by the content of one’s character rather than the color of one’s skin — constitutes some form of “multiracial whiteness.” Even George Orwell would not have predicted this horrifying doublespeak.
Joe Biden may have won the 2020 election, but President Donald Trump drew impressive numbers of black and Latino voters. Black former Democrats led a #Blexit movement away from the Democratic Party, and many blacks and Latinos are taking prominent roles in the conservative movement. All this gives the lie to Democrats’ tired claims that racism or “white supremacy” is the motivating factor behind conservatism and Trumpism, right?
Not exactly, according to Cristina Beltrán, an associate professor at New York University (NYU) whose words appear in The Washington Post. Using Marxist critical race theory, Beltrán argues that the sneaky ideology of “whiteness” has colonized the minds of many black and Latino Americans. If blacks or Latinos support Republicans or Trump, that just shows the nefarious impact of “multiracial whiteness.”
Most Americans might think, “What kind of new insanity is this? How can ‘whiteness’ be ‘multiracial’?” Yet Beltrán, like many others before her, applies the heinous logic of Marxist critical theory to find a hidden “whiteness” in the minds of black and Latino Americans.
“You can’t make this up”
A Grand Crossing man stole a towing company’s truck and then called 911 himself because he was upset that the truck’s driver dared to pull a gun on him, prosecutors said.
Elliott Scott, 22, is charged with aggravated possession of a stolen motor vehicle, misdemeanor theft, and driving on a suspended or revoked license.
“Mr. Scott called 911?” a befuddled Judge Charles Beach asked prosecutors after hearing their allegations.
“Yeah,” Scott interjected. “Right.”
Scott’s defense attorney quickly advised him, “it’s not best to talk about the charges” in court.
Prosecutors said police responded to a call Tuesday after someone stole a flatbed tow truck operated by Chi-City Towing from the 7400 block of South Exchange. The company’s owner provided police with its GPS coordinates, and cops went to that location.
While police were on their way, “the defendant called 911 and said he stole a truck and he was upset because the owner pulled a gun on him,” an assistant state’s attorney told Beach during Scott’s bond court hearing Wednesday.
When cops found the truck, Scott was in the driver’s seat, prosecutors said. He was taken into custody.
Scott, 22, has no criminal background.
Beach said he would allow Scott to go home on electronic monitoring without requiring a cash bail because “he did not use a weapon during this matter. He called the police, apparently, upon himself.”
