“Then another mysterious all-Biden vote dump happened in Wisconsin. Biden miraculously overcame a 4.1-point Trump lead in the middle of the night thanks to vote dumps in which he got—you guessed it—100 percent of the votes and Trump got zero.”

“The FBI tried to claim that the shooting at the baseball field was spontaneous and had no target, despite all evidence to the contrary.”
Thank goodness for Mollie Hemingway at The Federalist.
UPDATE: “Three Republican House Oversight Committee members on Friday called for an investigation into former FBI Director James Comey and Special Counsel Robert Mueller for acting in a partisan manner and applying double standards when it came to the Obama and Trump administrations.”
Here’s a cheery thought:
“A few years back, the late Cardinal George of the Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago, who died in April, said this: ‘I expect to die in bed, my successor will die in prison and his successor will die a martyr in the public square. His successor will pick up the shards of a ruined society and slowly help rebuild civilization, as the Church has done so often in human history.'”
—Austinite John Davidson of the Texas Public Policy Foundation.
On the other hand, I expect a quiet but growing refusal to obey these judicial laws-by-edict won by the Left’s “Outrage Industry,” as we continue to see with the drug laws, which may result in the cardinal’s “ruined society” but just as likely could create something altogether more promising.

UPDATE: The refusal begins.
Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson (whose updating of Carl Sagan’s Cosmos—including a shamelessly inaccurate plug for global warming—was so bad I stopped watching it after two episodes) is an atheist who apparently likes to make up fake quotes about believers, particularly former president Bush II.
Now Wikipedia is covering for Tyson: “Despite the fact that no evidence exists that Bush ever said ‘Our God is the God who named the stars’ shortly after 9/11 as a way of segregating Christians and Jews from Muslims, under no circumstances will Wikipedia allow that site to note that Tyson’s fabricated quote is obviously fake and non-existent.”
I still like Wikipedia as a resource, if not the bearer of absolute truth. Even the Encyclopedia Britannica has its quirks. Nor should Tyson, the latest black darling of the New York Progressives, be held to an absolute standard—although he is supposed to be a scientist before he’s a politico and he’s now failed that standard twice that I know of.
But trotting out the tired Bush and Christianity bashing in the same breath, apparently to show his fans he’s a doctrinaire Democrat, is twice too much for me.
Tyson, get thee behind me!

Abortion Barbie, the great blonde hope of the Texas Democrat party (not to mention the White House’s secret weapon to turn Texas blue, ho, ho), lost big time in the Rio Grande Valley. Too many Hispanics didn’t vote for Wendy.
Could be too many of them dislike abortion and have no interest in promoting someone who not only promotes but symbolizes it. But there was another, quite obvious reason: Democrat voter turnout statewide was down (yep, down) twenty percent from four years ago.
If your own team can’t get excited, Wendy, you’re in deep doo-doo.
