Shawn Smith, Alleged Killer of Brianna Kupfer, Arrested Will Gascon With No or High Bail Keep Him In Jail?

 Thank God for surveillance cameras and citizens with cell phones

Surveillance to record the face of Shawn Smith before he fled the area of his killing zone
Great photos of him buying a vape stick less than a half hour of robbing Brianna Kupfer of her life
Walking into Croft House where she was working alone and stabbed her with his knife
Walking past a man in Pasadena who called in that a man who looked like the suspected killer by had walked past
A call to mean that this suspect’s freedom from his random violent act would not long last
Quickly arrested and the drama now moves to Gascon’s bailiwick
What kind of enhanced charges and bail will time in jail before trial stick
The D.A. seems pro criminal and soft on victims rights to the point of they should pound sand
Emboldened by the first recall attempt without enough signatures he could withstand
Hopefully the tide has turned when a white college grad is killed in an upscale shopping district
That upper income residents will rise up in mass to Gascon’s pro criminal leanings restrict
Recall him out of office before more innocents are killed, maimed or robbed by thugs augmented those released on nominal bail
Unless D.A.’s like Gascon are recalled out of office not matter how many police are funded back in, attempts to reduce crime will fail

"Short People" Robert Reich Tries to Backpedal Back Hand Sinema Comment


Randy Newman’s song predated Clinton but hit the nail on the head
“Short People” went around telling “big lies” and not the truth instead
When it comes to short people Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich fits the bill
Total leftist, totally biased, standing 4’11” inches to spout his swill
Rants that Blues should give Sinema for her filibuster stand
A well-deserved and forceful back hand
And then with his misogyny violence exposed
Backpedals to try to conceal what we about him we must know
The myth that back hand means only an oral rebuke
Instead of a physical strike that would make even Blues puke
Nice try short little man but wool over the eyes attempt
Failed miserably and most of us believe Newman was right and hold you in contempt

Senate Votes to Subject "Voting Rights" Bill When Bill Really About Suppressing Voter Fraud

 John Lewis was a Civil Riots Advocate and long term Rep worthy of eternal fame

But affixing his name to the misnamed “Voting Rights Bills” is to his legacy defame
Every legal voter should not have any race based barriers on his right to vote
Likewise every legal voter should not have his vote cancelled by an illegal vote crossing the no illegal voting moat
How can requiring a voter to present a voter ID be a suppression of the his right to vote?
How demeaning to assume a voter ID minorities don’t have the IQ or the time to devote
How can preventing paid operatives to from nursing homes or residents ballot harvest
To turn in or sign if blank the party employer and the rest into the trash divest?
How does purging election rolls for not voting  with notice suppress the right to vote
Except the residents who have moved or died and whose remaining the chance for fraud promotes?
With winning office holders like Pelosi having chances to millions make
Or with the massive federal, state and cities billions of dollars to take
Expecting the criminal or ideologue elements among voters to follow the rules is absurd
One person one vote, citizens only, residents only and IDs as opposed trusting one’s word
Joseph Goebbels would be clapping in his grave that the bills were not after him named
Not “Voting Rights Bills” but “Voting Fraud Rights” to preventions against fraud tame
Goebbels preached say a lie again and again with a straight face and into the truth it becomes
With the DNC & its lackeys the MSM who must think all Red and Indy Americans are dumb
The narrative is voter suppression
Not voter fraud repression

Blind to Root Causes of Illegal Immigration Before Her Eyes Harris Off to Honduras Touting Investment Aidb

 Harris finally once against rises from her Border Czar slumber

After hearing the sighs of Blues wishing they could dump her
Her gaffes rival Biden even when he was young and in his gaffe prime
A staff bully and as to duties like reading briefings having no time
She was picked for diversity to be a magnet for the black vote
Hobbled by arrogance, hysterical cackles and skill less on issues to devote
Off to Honduras on a pampered Air Force Two Flight
To keep her incompetency from even a fawning press out of sight
Another mission to find root causes of why illegals cannot crossing the border resist
That lowers wages, brings in drugs, crime, trafficking and terrorists
Floods our schools and hospitals with illiterates and those for whom our safety net drains
Illegals lured by dollars given as long as Biden reigns
Her solution is ignore the border crossings and invest in Honduras to provide jobs
If Hondurans can find work in a nation free from corruption urge to leave will be robbed
In the long run that may be true but today
The surge increases each and every day
Illegals from countries far from the Northern Triangle
Lured by the economic prosperity and safety we dangle
Not enough room left with our massive national debt that grows
To solve in any time soon the world’s economic and crime problems to illegal immigration slow

             US Vaccinations: As of 01/17/22 515.16 million doses,  1.33 million per day over last week; my data from Bloomberg no longer available.
             Non  CV News:  The observes Martin Luther King, Jr. Day with the markets closed and Blues using it to promote passage of their misnamed Voters’ Rights Bills as King’s niece appeared on Fox to urge an end to the great divide in this country, promote the achievement of the American Dream by all based not on color of skin and call for a return to bringing God in our lives (if only Martin Luther King were alive today to address the folly of critical race theory and urge an end to divisiveness; the hostage situation created by Malik Faisal Akram by entering a Jewish synagogue in Colleyville, Texas was ended with their release by law enforcement killing him but the FBI is being castigated for claiming that Akram’s rationale for seizing the hostages was to obtain release of a jihadist terrorist serving 86 years in a nearby federal prison for killing American solders in Afghanistan was not directed against the Jewish community (déjà vu claim by the Obama Administration that the mass shooting  at Fort Hood by Army Major Nidal Hasan was caused by workplace violence not jihad); the NCAA is under great pressure to amend its rules governing competition by transgender females in women’s sporting events after scientific studies are showing that even with testosterone suppression, transgenders have an unfair advantage (if some common sense does not return to this issue to require transgenders compete in their biological class, say goodbye the Title IX and the progress made in the name of equality for women’s sports; Virginia has a Red governor largely due to the teachers’ unions and school boards insistence that parents should have no involvement in their kids’ education, a fact which the Blues in Michigan seem oblivious to as the party’s website posted a statement to that effect adding if parents didn’t like the curriculum they could send their kids to private schools (uproar quickly caused the post to be pulled but not before voters had another chance to realize the teachers’ unions have not been acting in the best interests of their kids); emails have revealed that although Education Secretary Cardona has denied, he was involved in encouraging the National Association of School Boards to write to the DOJ complaining that parents in Virginia appearing at school board meetings to protest the teaching of CRT were domestic terrorists which has caused 41 Red lawmakers to in a letter to Biden demand he be fired or resign;  as long as crime is confined to poor neighborhoods little if any lasting attention or MSM uproar but when it strikes the affluent the thugs and mentally ill homeless should be alarmed as Brianna Kupfer, a graduate student at UCLA was stabbed to death by a homeless black while working at a high end furniture store Croft House in L.A.; the move to use race as a criteria to determine who obtains scarce medical treatments has rightfully been hit with setbacks as a Midwestern Catholic hospital chain SSM after pushback has eliminated the criteria; Cuomo’s sex scandal claimed another victim as the Chancellor of SUNY resigned after harassing one of Cuomo’s sexual abuse accusers;  as more and more grocery shelves look like those of the Soviet Union before its collapse, leave it to the political cartoonist to portray the reality of shopping and the obliviousness of Biden to shoppers’ concerns:

              Chicago Gun Violence: Hey is alive and well to collect data to show that through January 16, 2022, gun violence involving mostly persons of color shooting mostly persons of color in Chicago is alive and well with 124 persons shot of whom 21 have died while 2021 shootings numbers compared to 2020 are 4544 to 4248 and deaths are 846 compared to 797.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day—signed into law by Ronald Reagan on November 2, 1983 and first celebrated on January 20, 1986 to celebrate his birthday on January 15, 1929 and honor his accomplishments toward civil rights and peace and now celebrated on the third Monday of each January. The day is also honored as one of two National Days of Service to honor the work of Martin Luther King in less advantaged neighborhoods.
             2.  National Bootleggers Day—created by Infinium Spirits in June, 2015  and first celebrated on this day in 2016, the 86th anniversary of the commencement of the failure experiment known as Prohibition to promote a bootleg rye whiskey produced in Templeton, Iowa and distributed throughout the Midwest and Chicago where it was one of Al Capone’s favorites. It is a small distillery which restarted in 2006 and distributed in the U.S. since 2013.
           3.  1953  Number 1 Song—the number 1 song in 1953  on this day was  “Don’t Let the Stars Get In Your Eyes” by Perry Como on a run of 5 weeks in that position to join 9 other songs that achieved number 1 status. Here’s a recording of Perry Como singing “Don’t Let The Stars Get In Your Eyes”:  Perry Como or “Mr. C” as known was noted American singer and television personality who signed with RCA Records and recorded exclusively for them for 44 years, avid golfer, married to his only wife for 65 years before she died and his talent died 6 days before his 89th birthday on May 12, 2001. Billboard Magazine’s epitaph summed up his life best: “50 years of music and a life well lived. An example to all.”
            4.  Word of the Day—the word of the day is “slugabed” which means someone who spends too much time in bed due to laziness” which might describe our president who seems to need more sleep and naps than Trump ever did.
Aping Sports Illustratedcelebrating the birth on this day in 1921 of “The First Lady of Television” comedian and actress Betty White who in addition to a 7 decade career was the first person to appear in front of and behind the camera. Definitely loved and admired by her fans and cohorts in the business. The reference to Sports Illustrated is that many times after an athlete was feature on its cover that athlete’s career or season went into the tank. People Magazine’s cover and lead story that hit the newsstand on December 29th and started arriving in subscribers’ mailboxes on the 31st celebrated her career and birthday, having no clue of the Sports Illustrated jinx as she died on the 31st.
              On this day in:
              a. 1917 fearful that Germany would seize the Virgin Islands for submarine bases, the U.S. after several years of negotiations purchased the islands for the sum of $25 million.
              b. 1945 Swedish diplomat Raul Wallenberg was taken into Soviet custody in Hungary and never seen again.
              c. 1969 Bunch Carter, founder of the Southern California Chapter of the Black Panther Party and John Huggins, another Black Panther Party member met with members of a rival black group the Organization Us at the Black Student Union at UCLA and were shot and killed. The alleged shooter was never found and three members of Organization U.S. were convicted of conspiracy to commit murder one of whom was sentenced to the Juvenile Authority while George and Larry Stiner were sentenced to life where both escaped with George never being caught and Larry a fugitive with his family in Surinam for 20 years before agreeing to turn himself in to allow his wife and 3 children to escape destitution in Surinam, an agreement which authorities reneged on after Steven returned. In view of the controversy over the presence of FBI agents present at the Capitol to urge protestors to attack Capitol police and enter, we should not be surprised to learn the FBI was planting false flags causing both organizations to believe  the other was plotting to violently attack them.                                                                        
              d. 1991 Coalition Air Forces led by the F-111 Stealth Bomber commenced air operations in Desert Storm against Iraq while Scott Spreicher in a F/A Hornet launched from the US Saratoga was shot down by a Mig-25 to become the first combat casualty of the Gulf War.

              e. 2013 U.S. Cyclist Lance Armstrong in a better late than never moment confessed to doping to win his Tour de France record number of wins on the Oprah Winfrey’s Oprah’s Next Chapter.
Reflections on doping before and after from the doping king Lance Armstrong:
              Jan 2011: "If you're trying to hide something, you wouldn't keep getting away with it for 10 years. Nobody is that clever."
              Jan 2013: "All the fault and all the blame here falls on me. I viewed this situation as one big lie that I repeated a lot of times. I made my decisions. They are my mistakes, and I am sitting here today to acknowledge that and to say I'm sorry for that.".

Chancellor of SUNY Resigns Due to Harassing One of Cuomo's Sexual Harassment Acusers

 Now that Cuomo has ended his political career in resignation disgrace

We are learning each day what was behind that charming Emmy award winning face
A sexual harassment tyrant whose workplace was hostile
A bully who would not hesitate to an opponent’s reputation defile
Managed to the nursing homes’ deaths due to his orders conceal
While on his daily briefings sometimes aided by Little Fredo enhance his skill with zeal
But the deaths piled up and we were treated to scenes of refrigerated trucks
Death counts understated, mounting sexual harassment claims he could not duck
The fame of an Emmy soon faded  away
News of Fredo joining his team to allegations of sexual harassment deflect
We learned today of pro Cuomo behavior the Chancellor of SUNY chose to elect
Emails of his harassment of one of Cuomo’s accusers were just revealed
Don’t know whether his behavior was volunteered or due to the demands of a bully coerced
But today under growing public pressure Jim Malatras resigned from his dream job for his behavior so perverse
The adage says “Lay down with dogs and come down with fleas”
In politics “Support the acts of a political pervert and your dream job is history”

Salt Lake City Tribune Editorial Board Demands Unvaccinated Be Subject to House Arrest Enforced by the National Guard

 As infections from the Omicron variant soar

And some politicians and the MSM common sense seem to ignore
First is the myth that vaccines prevent the spread
In reality what they do is lessen the severity instead
Fully vaccinated even those also with a booster are getting infected
In addition to mandating vaccinations another more dangerous act is selected
The editorial board of the Salt Lake City Tribune is demanding the unvaccinated be locked in at home
Calling not for ankle bracelets but the National Guard to insure they never leave their residential zone
All for a disease that results in .113% of the active cases in serious or critical condition
Calling for an act that merits only scathing opposition and constitutional prohibition
Maybe the editors assumed that doggy doors would allow food to be delivered
And the condemned would always be able to work at home and not cut off from income to on the vine wither
If we would listen to these idiots and their demands put in place
What are the next diseases or conditions would be the excuse to our freedoms replace?
Pneumonia or the flu that cause many to become severely ill or dead
Ignoring the fact the annual shots do not stop their spread
Another misguided example of the nanny state protecting us from cradle to grave
Put into germ resistant isolation bubbles to the experience of what makes us humans wave
