J6 pollaganda, fully vaxxed AOC gets COVID, jobs numbers deception, “transgender” confusion, and more.

Leftmedia employs pollaganda to further J6 narrative: “6 in 10 Americans say U.S. democracy is in crisis as the ‘Big Lie’ takes root,” blares the headline from taxpayer-funded NPR. Colluding with the Democrats to promote that narrative heading into a daunting 2022 election landscape, the Leftmedia is busy testing to see if Americans are buying into the nonstop story of “democracy threatened” (by Republicans), and if this dubious narrative can be an effective tool to counter a growing red wave come November. Furthermore, the aim is to convince filibuster-elimination-resistant Democrats Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema to cave and allow Chuck Schumer to California-ize all states’ elections and thereby secure Democrat election victories in perpetuity. As Dan Bongino astutely observes: “When Democrats lose something, democracy is falling apart, and they’re like the Praetorian Guards of democracy. It’s their Hail Mary when they can’t argue the issues anymore, which is pretty much every day. Truth is, Democrats see the writing on the wall in 2022, and I know you do too.”
Fully vaxxed AOC gets COVID: Well, we guess the party’s over. Last week, New York Representative and “Squad” member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was spotted openly enjoying liberty-loving Florida as she dined and partied mask-free in Miami. AOC was widely criticized over her blatant hypocrisy, since she has repeatedly criticized Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for his fight against vaccine and mask mandates. She attempted to deflect criticism by engaging in juvenile insults, claiming those highlighting her hypocrisy were “projecting their sexual frustrations onto my boyfriend’s feet.” Well, now it turns out the fully vaccinated and boostered AOC has come down with a case of COVID. The fact is that no amount of vaccination or mask-wearing has stopped the novel virus, so maybe AOC should rethink her criticism of DeSantis and his work to protect that which makes life worth living — freedom.
White House deceives on Biden’s jobs numbers: The White House recently posted on social media a graph depicting average jobs created per month by the last seven presidents with the statement: “Under President Biden, the economy has created more jobs per month than under any other President — ever.” The graph depicts Biden being credited with creating 550,000 monthly jobs, far outpacing the next closest president, Bill Clinton, at 100,000 jobs. The sole president credited only with jobs lost was of course Donald Trump, under whom the economy was dislodged thanks to the unprecedented COVID pandemic. Like last month’s graph celebrating a two-cent reduction in a gallon of gas, the Biden White House has done it again by comparing a one-year sample size against the entire four- and eight-year terms of previous presidents. Even Washington Post “fact-checker” Glenn Kessler couldn’t take the blatant deceit. “Trump used to do the same thing — until his record was spoiled by the job losses in his last year,” he wrote. “Don’t count your chickens before they hatch.” Meanwhile, Biden’s economy is still down about four million jobs compared to Trump’s pre-pandemic number.
Double the “transgenders,” double the confusion: At an Ivy League women’s swim meet over the weekend, two “transgender” swimmers competed. Lia Thomas, a biological male who for the previous three years competed in the men’s division until he declared himself a woman this season, went head-to-head against Iszack Henig, a biological female who has declared herself a male and has undergone breast-removal surgery. Thomas, who has been destroying women’s swimming records this season, lost to Henig. To recap this confusion, a male swimmer identifying as a female lost to a female swimmer identifying as a male, and all of this happened at a women’s swim meet. As one bewildered University of Pennsylvania parent stated: “Everything is messed up. I can’t wrap my head around this. The NCAA needs to do something about this. They need to put science into the decision and discussion.”
