Another conservative faces public shunning. Liberals grow bolder with their intolerance.

from USAToday

Last weekend, Fox News analyst Gianno Caldwell was trying to enjoy breakfast with friends in Miami when he made the unforgivable error of discussing his political beliefs. 

That caught the attention of one of the cafe’s owners, who informed the conservative commentator that his politics weren’t palatable in the restaurant and told the group that “the language they were using was unwelcome in our space.” 

Caldwell, who is Black, took to social media to vent about the incident, and he talked about it on “Fox & Friends Weekend” the next day. Fox News analyst Gianno Caldwell says he was asked to leave a restaurant in Miami because of his conservative political views.

“No matter your politics you should not be discriminated against,” he said on Twitter. “I was discriminated against for being a conservative and told to leave a restaurant in North Miami because my politics didn’t ‘align’ with the owner. This is NOT okay.”

On the Fox News segment, Caldwell said the incident was a “grave injustice” and reminiscent of the Jim Crow South. 

First of all, I don't know if I should believe this or not since Fux Nooze lies thru their noses. But assuming it did happen, I think comparing it to Jim Crow was a bit of a stretch.

Greene, Gosar reinstated to committee by GOP-led House after Democrats had removed them

Source: USAToday

WASHINGTON – Marjorie Taylor Greene, the Georgia GOP congresswoman stripped of her committee assignments two years ago by the Democratic-led House following a series of menacing social media posts, has been reinstated by the Republicans who now run the chamber.

Greene was named Tuesday to the Homeland Security Committee, her spokesman confirmed to USA TODAY. 

In addition, Republicans reinstated Arizona GOP Rep. Paul Gosar, who similarly had been removed from his committees after being censured in 2021 for posting an anime video that was edited to show him killing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and attacking President Joe Biden.

Gosar was named to the Committee on Natural Resources, according to his spokesperson. 

Both Greene and Gosar could still be added to other committees as House leadership releases more assignments this week.

From the "Stupid Headlines" Dept

In USAToday (today) ,
" What's going to happen in Washington over the next 2 years? Americans don't expect much "

The headline should read:

" Maybe the idea that you just vote for the opposite party at the midterms was a bad idea" instead of asking those same idiots how things will go after they screwed it up.

Any word from the voters of New York's 3rd congressional district?

Why aren't the voters of that district starting a writing campaign against their lying, cheating and stealing congressman they claim they didn't know they voted for? Shouldn't they be going door to door asking each other to write to the speaker of the house to sanction or expel him from the house so they can have someone that only lies a little but really graduated from somewhere?

I have to say that MSNBC's coverage of the 14th speaker vote is awful

I can't watch MSNBC with their horse-race mentality and steve what's his face up there giving all this coverage to a bunch of moronic insurrectionists without ever reminding the viewing audience what these people are really about. Back to Cspan.

Vatican defrocks Frank Pavone, anti-abortion activist and priest, over social media posts

Source: USA Today

The Vatican has defrocked Frank Pavone, a high-profile anti-abortion American priest, over “blasphemous communications on social media” and “persistent disobedience” of his bishop, according to news reports Sunday.

The Vatican removed Pavone from the priesthood Nov. 9 and there is no chance for him to appeal his dismissal, according to a letter to U.S. bishops from Christophe Pierre, the Vatican ambassador to the U.S. The letter was first reported by Catholic News Agency.

Pavone, founder of anti-abortion group Priests for Life, frequently posts on social media about politics and abortion, largely in support of former President Donald J. Trump and the Republican party's anti-abortion platform.

The Vatican said it provided Pavone "ample opportunity" to defend himself, but he provided "no reasonable justification for his actions," according to the letter.

I guess the Catholic church is getting tired of being used as pawns by repuglicans.

USA Today editorial on the wonders of Kemp in Georgia

Link to editorial:


Brian Kemp won for two main reasons.

1. All the democrats I know in Georgia crossed-over in the primary to defeat the complete whackadoodle that trump was pushing. Since Kemp upheld the election, he was the lesser of two literal evils.

2. Stacey Abrams campaign suffered serious neglect. I don't know if it was due to lack of resources, volunteers, money or all three. The few ads I saw with Stacey did not show her as a competent executive which was terribly wrong. She has more schooling and knowledge than 10 Brian Kemps, but she wasn't spotlighted properly. I saw early on things would not go in her favor unless the campaign made some serious adjustments, which I never saw happen. I know it's hindsight now, but just my two cents. Giving Brian Kemp credit or acting like he's presidential material as is stated in the editorial is just ludicrous. Of course, when you use Herschel Walker as a comparison, I think Daffy Duck would be a better choice.

I saw an article in the Times this morning that floored me

Headline reads:

Jewish Allies Call Trump’s Dinner With Antisemites a Breaking Point

For much of Donald J. Trump’s presidency, Jewish Republicans rationalized away the bigoted fringe of Mr. Trump’s coalition, arguing that the unsavory supporters in his midst and the antisemitic tropes he deployed paled in comparison with the staunchly pro-Israel policies of his administration. But last week, Mr. Trump dined at his Palm Beach palace, Mar-a-Lago, with the performer Kanye West, who had already been denounced for making antisemitic statements, and with Nick Fuentes, an outspoken antisemite and Holocaust denier, granting the antisemitic fringe a place of honor at his table. Now, even some of Mr. Trump’s staunchest supporters say they can no longer ignore the abetting of bigotry by the nominal leader of the Republican Party.

“I am a child of survivors. I have become very frightened for my people,” Morton Klein, head of the right-wing Zionist Organization of America, said on Monday, referring to his parents’ survival of the Holocaust. “Donald Trump is not an antisemite. He loves Israel. He loves Jews. But he mainstreams, he legitimizes Jew hatred and Jew haters. And this scares me.”

Not all Republican leaders have spoken out, but Jewish Republicans are slowly peeling away from a former president who, for years, insisted he had no ties to the bigoted far right, but refused to repudiate it. Jewish figures and organizations that have stood by Mr. Trump, from Mr. Klein’s group to the pro-Trump commentator Ben Shapiro to Mr. Trump’s own former ambassador to Israel and onetime bankruptcy lawyer, David M. Friedman, have all spoken out since the dinner.

For Jews, the concern extends far beyond a single meal at Mar-a-Lago, though that dinner has become a touchstone, especially for Jewish Republicans.

The article is behind a paywall but that is the gist of it.

I guess all it takes is to have some dumb rally and say you support Israel while encouraging anti-Semite hate groups as supporters. Some people just walk around with their eyes closed. ( I said it that way to be kind. What I wanted to say was much more derogatory )
