What Was California Thinking?

As homicides in Chicago show no sign of stopping, the demand for funerals is now bigger than the demand for baby formula. Just like a war-torn country, Chicago has now introduced a curfew. It is safer for the kids to be on the streets of Ukraine or Afghanistan than take a walk in the South Side of Chicago. While Lori Lightfoot fights racism by refusing interviews with white journalists, the city’s black population is getting exterminated by the black drug gangs. Apparently, Lori believes Tucker Carlson is not only responsible for the Buffalo shooting but also for black gangs indiscriminately spraying bullets on the streets of Chicago.
Now, Mr. Durham has brought the case into the DC federal district courtroom of Judge Christopher Cooper, appointed by Barack Obama. Judge Cooper’s wife, Amy Jeffress, is the attorney for the same Lisa Page of Jumpin’ Jack Flash fame. Meanwhile, several jurors seated in the trial revealed that they were donors to the 2016 Hillary Clinton campaign — something one might expect in a city that voted over 90 percent for Mrs. Clinton in that election. Mr. Durham must have known that prosecuting the case under those circumstances would be a slog.
Exactly why does Apple and the two companies they’ve worked with to produce this vehicle – Concept Creator and Letsgodigital – think it’s a good idea to try and market a vehicle that’s sure to cost six-figures yet requires passengers to sit in what amounts to a claustrophobic, panic-inducing coffin? Comfortable seats and cool entertainment options aside, do they really think folks are going to want to seal themselves into a windowless vault for their daily commute?
No serious Republican has endorsed this extreme racist French theory” that there is a Jewish plot to “replace” white Americans with Muslims and Africans (racist because it involves Jewish plots and refers to specific races and religions). Republican objections to the Democrat plan would be exactly the same if Democrats were importing blonde-haired blue-eyed yodeling Scandinavians to shift the US electorate to the Left.
How obvious that the freedom of speech is what made the pushback possible, for if the First Amendment were completely dead, we would never have seen the commentary of the embarrassing hearings or the Mary Poppins video. This brazen attack on the first of our Bill of Rights would have just happened, probably by executive order.
