Good to see them get together.
Biden took a few questions from reporters yesterday before abruptly stopping and saying “I’m really gonna be in trouble”
You can tell how much of this is stagecraft requiring the suspension of disbelief. President Biden would have us believe things that are logically incompatible, e.g., (1) that climate change is one of the most important crises facing the human race, and (2) that John Kerry should be entrusted with leading our response to climate change.
John Kerry should not be in charge of climate change — he should be in charge of addressing the national debt, because the only thing in life he ever has had much talent for is marrying money. (Mr. Kerry has married two heiresses; the current Mrs. Kerry has married two senators — these are totally normal people and not weird at all.)
Not off the Democratic bench, no. A first-stringer.
Berkeley’s language cops reject the term “master,” instead of insisting on terms like “captain,” “skipper” or “pilot.” Let’s hope the University of California doesn’t have to change “master’s degree” to “skipper’s degree.”
The council also objects to the word “heir,” preferring the term “beneficiaries.” But there’s no gender reference in “heirs.” The dictionary definition is “a person legally entitled to the property or rank of another on that person’s death.”
In 2019 we could laugh about it . . .
While it is true that part of the Mass is meant to be instructive and intelligible, the overall character of the liturgy is meant to be much more. Instead, what is meant to be the focus is that, in the “liturgy, heaven joins earth, the invisible becomes visible, and the symbolic is the real (sign and reality)” (Mystical Body, Mystical Voice: Encountering Christ in the Words of the Mass, 27). This hidden reality should then be expressed in the language that is used at Mass, for “the language that we use during the liturgy is the Mystical Voice of the Mystical Body, a ‘hymn of praise that is sung through all the ages in the heavenly places’” (Ibid, 29).
Rather than being a mere proclamation of scripture, the liturgy is meant to bring others…

Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif claimed in recently leaked audio that John Kerry, when he was serving as Secretary of State during the Obama administration, informed him of more than 200 Israeli operations in Syria.
Kerry has previously been accused of colluding with Iranian leaders to undermine the Trump administration. Kerry is now a part of the Biden administration and has a seat on the National Security Council as the special presidential envoy for climate.
He served in Viet Nam, you know. Top-level Democrat, trusted as far as you can throw him.
Those Dems could not resist the chance to tell people what to do. World’s biggest busybodies.
CDC: Open States Texas and Florida Doing Much Better than Closed Blue States
From the story: Republican-led states including Texas and Florida are reporting fewer coronavirus cases than Michigan, Pennsylvania and New York — all of which are led by prominent Democrats who refuse to roll back COVID-19 regulations and statewide mask mandates, according to CDC data. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott was widely criticized by the left after he completely reversed the state’s mandate on March 10 and fully reopened his state. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was also accused of endangering Florida residents when he allowed businesses to fully reopen in September without a mask mandate in place.
Too bad. Getting into the mix on this subject would not be out of order. He should do so, when you get down to it.
The whole aim of practical politics, said HL Mencken, “is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”
It is hard to avoid the impression that officials are alarmed rather than pleased by the fading of the pandemic in Britain. They had a real hobgoblin to hand, and boy did they make the most of it, but it’s now turning into a pussy cat. So they are back to casting around for imaginary ones to justify their draconian – and deliciously popular – command and control over every detail of our lives. Look, variants!
Face masks may not be needed in the summer as the vaccine does the ‘heavy lifting’ allowing the country to return ‘towards normal’, senior government scientists have said.

Leftists claimed Thursday that the police shooting of 16-year-old Bryant was unjustified because the girl was merely involved in a “knife fight,” despite footage showing only she had a knife as she tried to stab two victims.
In addition, NBC News was caught editing the 911 call to omit the reference to the fact that Bryant was engaged in a stabbing attack, as well as failing to broadcast the footage which showed her carrying a knife.
Now new footage has emerged from a security camera across the street from where the incident took place, in which Bryant is heard screaming, “I’m gonna stab the f*ck out of you, bitch!” while attempting to stab the two unarmed people.
Good police work apparently.
