Texas opening

Any business that wants to can open without crowd restrictions and the statewide mask mandate is rescinded, says Gov. Greg Abbott. Sure to be opposition from various Dimocrat mayors, especially Austin’s Adler.

UPDATE: Austin Mayor Steve Adler and Travis County Judge Andy Brown, both Dimocrats, urged us to keep masking. They said the governor’s action is an attempt to distract from his handling of the statewide power outages. Of course they would say that.

Governor vs Mayor

Austin Mayor Steve Adler (of Cabo, Mexico vacation fame) has issued an “order” for bars and restaurants to shutter at 10:30 p.m. on New Year’s eve or face a $1K fine, supposedly to prevent the spread of the CCP virus.

Gov. Gregg Abbott says the mayor’s order is illegal because it violates Abbott’s executive order GA-32 which prevents Texas cities from arbitrarily shuttering businesses. Da Mayor has yet to respond. A judge is expected to rule on Thursday.

News from the Donald

“The Fake News refuses to cover the fact that GDP went up 33.1% for the 3rd Quarter, the best number by far in our Country’s history!”

Economics matters

Gotta like this Tweet from McKayla J on Twitter: “Black people out there clownin 50 cent for being part of the 2% but what y’all don’t understand is that [the] 2% is what employs the 98%. If they are being taxed to death then they’ll [sic] be a trickle effect, mass layoffs, no jobs and more depression… Economics matters.”

Voting has consequences.

The Attempted Covid Coup

“COVID-19 is not America’s plague. There was never the slightest evidence that the virus could produce mass casualties; all evidence pointed in the opposite direction. Instead, the ruling class took this opportunity to extort the general public’s compliance with its agendas. Their claim to speak on behalf of ‘science’ is an attempt to avoid being held accountable for the enormous harm that they are doing. They continue doing it because they want to hold on to the power the panic has brought them.

“In sum, the lockdowns have been inflicted and perpetuated by people who care more about your subjugation than your health. They want to wreck the U.S. economy and increase the Democratic Party’s chances in the 2020 election. And they might succeed.”

Looking at you, Dr. Fauci.

Morning of destruction

You were (so far) relatively safe if you lived in southwest Minneapolis. Otherwise…700 buildings were damaged, burned or destroyed. How many livelihoods?

“Cities like Minneapolis will struggle for years to overcome the destruction of these riots…Rioters burned down the very club where George Floyd had worked. They also wreaked havoc on the local community, black and white alike…It is absolutely heinous that speaking out about this destruction is considered anathema on the left.”

Which is why we don’t often see a map of the scale of the destruction, except on very bold media, like the Federalist, which NBC and Google are coincidentally (?) trying to shut down.
