Looks like New Wife just snuck in under the wire:
President Joe Biden has issued a travel ban on South Africa, stopping most immigration to the United States from the country, and reinstated bans on Europe and Brazil to slow the spread of the Chinese coronavirus.
My only question is: why stop at South Africa? When it comes to strange and wonderful diseases that can kill you faster than sharing a needle with Pete Buttigieg in a Turkish bath, the whole continent of Africa (along with China) is pretty much the world’s Petrie Dish Of Pox: West Nile virus, Wuhan virus, SARS and, speaking of Mayor Buttplug, AIDS — to name just a few off the top of my head.
Anyway, New Wife has her green card, but that hasn’t really made her feel much better. She has two grandchildren in Oz and soon, another one appearing in Seffrica — none of whom she’s had a chance to see other than through Zoom and suchlike. So she’s suffering from a severe case of Grandma Cuddle Deprivation (GCD), and all these travel bans and such are not doing her temper any favors.
Even worse, she barely drinks any booze so I can’t distract her with pints of champagne or Pimm’s No.1 (her favorite tipples on birthdays, anniversaries and high holy days only).
Frankly, unless all this Chinkvirus shit gets sorted in the near future… well, she doesn’t know how to use a gun (shuddup) and in any event, she’s one of the gentlest people in the entire world, so there’s unlikely to be any rough stuff as her GCD worsens.
I’m probably just going to need to buy her favorite chocolate by the metric tonne…
Then there’s this asshole:
Tunisian Migrant Charged in Connection to French Church Terror Attack
Wait for it…
Brahim Aouissaoui, a 21-year-old Tunisian national was shot and seriously injured during the October 29th attack in Nice, France. He has finally been charged after his condition improved enough to be questioned by police.
The French broadcaster RTL reported on Monday that police had found an audio message on the migrant’s phone, in which he described France as the “land of unbelievers”, as well as “photographs relating” to the so-called Islamic State.
Police also found an image on Aouissaoui’s phone of the Chechen Islamist terrorist Abdulzakh Anzorov, who beheaded a French teacher, Samuel Paty — two weeks prior to the terror attack in Nice — after the teacher showed a class on free speech a Charlie Hebdo caricature of the Islamic prophet Muhammed.
During the attack at the Basilica of Notre-Dame in Nice, Aouissaoui reportedly yelled out the jihadist war cry “Allahu Akbar” during and after the attack. Along with three knives, two mobile phones, the Tunisian migrant was also carrying a copy of the Quran.
From Issues & Insights:
Today’s Democrats are defined by policy choices and actions that are not consistent with liberty and independence. They are the party of:
- A coup attempt.
- Re-education camps.
- Segregation (through its support for Black Lives Matter and racially divisive policies in higher learning).
- Marxist indulgence. (see BLM again).
- Election fraud.
- Using government to punish political enemies.
- A modern serfdom.
- The cancel culture.
- A job-destroying $15 minimum wage
- Dependence on government.
- Campus and workplace speech codes.
- Crackdowns on dissenting political views.
- Apologies for America being America.
- Coastal elitism.
- Crony capitalism.
- Miserable health care.
- More bureaucracy.
- Second Amendment infringements.
- Mandated masks.
- Nags, scolds, and shrill ideologues.
- Court packing.
- Smothering regulations.
The Democrats’ plans also include robbing workers of their freedom; dictating Americans’ choice of automobiles; forcing on the country a crackpot green energy plan that will severely damage the economy while providing zero environmental benefits; transforming the country into a socialist “paradise”; and establishing single-party governance.
It’s not only what they plan on doing; some of the above is what they’ve already done, and if not stopped, will carry on, and more besides. You all know what to do; if you haven’t already done it, get out and vote against these miserable asshole Marxist motherfuckers.
Imagine leaving the high-tax, no-guns environment of Manhattan, and ending up in New Jersey, Connecticut and downstate New York, all places where taxes are low, gun ownership is encouraged, and…
Sorry, I can only stand so much snark.
This is getting out of hand.
Due to increasingly squalid conditions on the Upper West Side, including two new homeless shelters packed with junkies and registered sex offenders, longtime dwellers are departing the Big Apple with no plans to ever return.
Okay, that’s good for at least a semi-Schadenboner — liberal assholes reaping the fruits of their voting record. Here’s an example:
One of the Escape from New Yorkers is Elizabeth Carr, one of the area’s most vocal leaders in combating mounting crime in the well-heeled ‘hood. She was an administrator of the Facebook group NYC Moms for Safer Streets, and the face of a public-safety movement that has attracted thousands to demand better policing and city services.
But a little Faecesbook group isn’t strong enough to overcome all the insane socialist policy and government from the likes of Hizzoner Di Blasio, so:
She said she started planning to move before the COVID crisis and recent neighborhood developments, but officially put down stakes Sunday in North Carolina with her finance husband and three kids under 7.
Wait, what? North Carolina? What’s wrong with Connecticut, or Rhode Island, or New Jersey? Oh yeah, I forgot. All those Yankee places are just as bad as New York fucking City.
So this Upper-East-Side family (no prizes for guessing how they voted in 2016) are leaving the NYC Sinking Ship and moving to North Carolina (as so many seem to be doing), where no doubt they’ll keep voting for Democrats and similar filth just as their fellow refugees do.
And North Carolina will go from Conservative Red to Poxy Purple to Deep Blue inside a single generation.
According to City Journal‘s Steve Malanga, Californication shouldn’t be as bad as people think:
Conservatives and moderates are the most unhappy with the state and most anxious to leave. Liberals, by contrast, are mostly staying put, and some think life in California is just great. Only 38 percent of Democrats said that they were considering leaving, compared with 55 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Similarly, those characterizing themselves as “somewhat liberal” were least likely to say that they want to go—fewer than four in ten are considering leaving. But 53 percent of moderates, 66 percent of the “somewhat conservative,” and 74 percent of the “very conservative” would like to migrate. Political affiliation, in fact, was more of a predictor of who wants to go or stay than other demographic information, such as race.
I think that the longtime residents of Colorado (to name just one state infested with ex-Californians) might beg to differ with Malanga’s thesis — and I think I know the problem.
Basically, “conservative” Californians coming to, say, Texas probably aren’t conservative at all. Compared to other Californians, they might be; compared to conservative Texans, they’re probably more like moderate Democrats. And the way to establish the truth of this is to find out if during their first year in a new state, these Cali-expats bought a gun (if they didn’t bring any with them). If they didn’t buy a gun, they failed the first unofficial test of conservative American citizenship.
This kills me. I have very dear relatives who are lifelong Californians, and are making serious plans to leave the state. They are probably more conservative than I am, and are staunch gun owners to boot. But I’m positive that Uncle Mike and The Angel In Human Form are in no way representative of these modern Joads-in-reverse.
More’s the pity.
P.S. The above-mentioned relatives (much to my chagrin) are not moving to Texas because of the heat. But let’s just say that the political makeup of one of the mountain states is about to become a lot more conservative.
