Tuesday, May 23, 2023 -- More Biden Corruption, The Disappointing Dodgers, Target Joins The Bud Club

More Biden Corruption


It’s clear from the Durham report and from several unfortunate recent events that the once iconic FBI has been hijacked by left-wing ideologues and weaponized against conservative Americans. 


If the Bureau isn’t attempting to run interference for Democrat presidential candidates, it’s smearing Donald Trump, spying on concerned parents and conservative Catholics or persecuting pro-life activists! 


Sadly, it isn’t the only government agency that has been weaponized by the left.  A second IRS whistleblower has come forward to allege that the Internal Revenue Service is also “compromise” and covering for Hunter Biden.


(By the way, Hunter flew on a private jet to a recent court hearing to explain why he was “too poor” to pay more in child support!)


Like the first IRS whistleblower, this second whistleblower was recently kicked off the Hunter Biden investigation after five years of handling the case.  And like the first whistleblower, he, too, is accusing the Justice Department of inappropriately interfering in the investigation. 


When he filed a complaint with his superiors at the IRS, he was threatened with “accusations of criminal conduct.”  Lawyers representing the whistleblowers fear the IRS is attempting to aggressively “intimidate into silence anyone who might raise similar concerns.”


Of course, this isn’t the first time the IRS has acted to promote the left’s agenda.  We remember well the IRS scandals from the Obama/Biden era involving discrimination against various Tea Party groups.  It has leaked confidential information from conservative pro-family organizations.  More recently, the IRS has targeted Christian organizations.


And keep in mind that Joe Biden and congressional Democrats just supercharged the IRS with tens of billions of dollars to hire thousands and thousands of new agents.  In other words, the bureaucratic corruption and harassment is about to get a lot worse.




The Disappointing Dodgers


No, that’s not a commentary on the 2023 season for the legendary baseball team.  But men and women of faith, particularly Catholics, all across America are deeply disappointed in the Los Angeles Dodgers today.


When news first broke that the Dodgers had invited the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, a virulently anti-Catholic group of drag queens, to a “Pride Night” celebration, many people were rightly outraged. 


Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) wrote to Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred explaining what the group is all about.  He wrote:


“The ‘sisters’ are men who dress in lewd imitation of Roman Catholic nuns. The group’s motto, ‘go and sin some more,’ is a perversion of Jesus’s command to ‘go, and sin no more.’ . . .  


“Do you believe that the Los Angeles Dodgers are being ‘inclusive and welcoming to everyone’ by giving an award to a group of gay and transgender drag performers that intentionally mocks and degrades Christians?”


The Dodgers got the message and realized they went too far.  So, they disinvited the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, but the “Pride Night” was still on. 


Well, the LGBTQ mafia, which is at war with religious liberty across America, pushed back.  Evidently, the Dodgers decided that they couldn’t stand against hairy-legged men dressed as nuns, and they folded like a cheap suit.


In a statement released last night, the Los Angeles Dodgers offered their “sincerest apologies to the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, members of the LGBTQ+ community and their friends and families.”  The Dodgers reinvited the anti-Catholic drag queens to “take their place on the field at our 10th annual LGBTQ+ Pride Night on June 16th.”


In what world is a major sports franchise apologizing to a group of anti-religious drag queens?!?  The answer:  Joe Biden’s America in 2023.


Is there any other group in America they would be so eager to mock and offend?  They would never mock Muslim imams or Jewish rabbis.  But priests, nuns and pastors are fair game. 


This is just another reminder that all the left’s talk about tolerance is just one big lie.


ACTION ITEM:  Click here to find phone and email contact information for the Dodgers.  Firmly but politely, tell them how disappointed you are that they are celebrating this group of anti-religious bigots.




Target Joins The Bud Club


You can add mega-retailer Target to the growing list of American corporations that seem determined to undermine normalcy and offend the great majority of their customers. 


As you know, Budweiser has paid a terrible price after promoting a transgender social media star – a man who pretends he is a teenage girl.  Now Target appears to be upping the ante.


Like many companies, Target is gearing up to celebrate LGBTQ Pride Month in June.  But that kind of pandering is the default position of corporate America these days. 


Looking for a way to stand out, Target is partnering with a transgendered fashion designer who evidently celebrates Satanism.  Among his more popular items is a pin that reads “Satan Respects Pronouns.” 


The store is also selling “tuck-friendly” women’s bathing suits.  (I’ll leave it to your imagination to figure out what that is all about.)


This isn’t going over well in some parts of the country.  A number of Target stores reportedly held “emergency” calls last week in response to growing customer outrage over massive LGBTQ Pride displays and offensive items.  Store managers are scrambling to “avoid a Bud Light situation.”




Throwing Shade On The Sunshine State


As we noted in yesterday’s report, the NAACP is warning black Americans to avoid traveling to Florida.  It claims that the state, under Gov. Ron DeSantis’s leadership, is “hostile to black Americans.”


The NAACP really should change its name.  First, it’s odd that in 2023 any organization still uses the phrase “Colored People.”  But as the late, great Rush Limbaugh referred to them, they really are the NAALCP – the National Association for the Advancement of Liberal Colored People.


The Sunshine State is booming economically.  Everyone in the state is benefitting, including minorities.  Many black Americans love visiting Florida, even those who think it is a “terrorist state.”  And the chairman of the NAACP lives there, so it can’t be all that bad. 


Issuing a travel advisory against the state is an absurd political stunt.  But even though we know it is absurd, it is, sadly, an effective left-wing stunt. 


Gov. Ron DeSantis is expected to announce his presidential campaign this week.  Whenever he announces, every newspaper and network will include this “controversy” in its reporting, saying that “The leading organization representing black Americans has declared DeSantis’s state unsafe for minorities.”


It is a massive smear campaign perfectly timed for his presidential announcement. 

Here’s more evidence that it is a political stunt. 


While the NAACP was warning people this weekend to avoid traveling to Florida, 22 people, most of them minorities, were shot in Chicago.  It wasn’t a particularly unusual weekend in Chicago, a city run entirely by Democrats. 


The NAACP has never issued a travel advisory urging minorities to think twice about visiting Chicago, where black women, children and young black men are routinely shot and killed every single weekend. 


The hypocrisy is breathtaking.
