    ABC legal analyst Sunny Hostin told her co-hosts Wednesday on “The View” that Republicans’ concerns about the number of migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border were “political theater.” Hostin said, “It’s just a lot of political theater I see coming from the Republicans. They’re trying to reframe the conversation as to what is important to Americans, how abortion isn’t important to Americans. I don’t know. It was important at the voter booth for them, you know, it’s inflation, inflation, inflation, the price of gas is sky-high.” She continued, “You know, you see these Republicans going to the border and then taking...
  • Texas Wesleyan Cancels Play After Students Say Use of Slur Is Harmful [The writer of the play is black]

    The play’s author, who is Black, said he crafted its language to be historically accurate in representing civil rights struggles. But the theater program at the university heeded the call of students. Texas Wesleyan University halted its production of “Down In Mississippi,” a play about registering voters in the 1960s, after criticism from students who said racist epithets in the script could contribute to a hostile, unwelcoming environment. Its author said he was using that language to represent the reality of the period. The play by Carlyle Brown, a Black playwright based in Minneapolis, focuses on the efforts of a...

    Airports have been the main stages for security and hygiene "theater.". Bureaucrats cling to power. It’s their institutional predisposition. So it was no surprise on Wednesday when the Department of Justice appealed the recent Federal court ruling that struck down the mask mandate imposed on mass transportation by the Centers for Disease Control. As the appeal demonstrates, governments are especially reluctant to give up emergency powers. When they do, the relinquishment is grudging and only partial. That is a big reason why big government keeps getting bigger. As economist Robert Higgs showed in his book Crisis and Leviathan, since the...

    @MarkDice The fact that Will Smith wasn’t kicked out of the Oscars and arrested for assaulting Chris Rock shows how Hollywood allows, enables, and celebrates the very worst behaviors. Workplace violence isn’t tolerated in normal industries. @MarkDice Probably not staged. Jada Pinkett Smith has alopecia so in this context the joke was pretty mean, and set him off @MarkDice Maybe the writers didn't know about Jada's alopecia. I doubt they would allow Chris Rock to mock someone's medical condition in the woke era.

    Eric Adams, the new mayor of New York City, rode into office on a wave of popular discontent with his predecessor. Part of his pitch to voters was that he would “revisit” Bill de Blasio’s draconian vaccine mandates. The mayor promised on Wednesday to find a mutually satisfactory solution with Major League Baseball to get unvaccinated players back in the game. The season-opening is just around the corner, starting on April 7 for the Yankees and April 15 for the Mets. “We are going to do an analysis,” Mayor Adams explained at Wednesday’s press conference. “Baseball season is not tomorrow....
  • ‘Asinine Dishonest Theater’: Sen. Ted Cruz Rips The NBA Fining The Nets For Breaking City Vaccine Mandate

    Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz ripped the National Basketball Association (NBA) Tuesday after fining the Brooklyn Nets $50,000 for allowing an unvaccinated Kyrie Irving to step inside the locker room. “One final example for just how asinine this is: the NBA just fined Kyrie Irving $50,000 because [of] their rules, the rules of New York City,” Cruz said. “Here’s how idiotic it is: Kyrie Irving could go to a game, could sit in the stands not being vaccinated, which he did. That was perfectly okay. But if he actually plays, that’s not permissible.” “Because apparently in addition to Diet Coke...

"You do not have to wear those masks," the Florida Republican, who has been one of the nation’s most outspoken governors against mask and vaccine mandates, told students at the University of South Florida as he walked up to the podium to speak on Wednesday. "Please take them off," DeSantis continued. "Honestly, it's not...

    The whole world is waiting nervously for developments in Ukraine. Masses of Russian soldiers are engaged in "military exercises" near the Ukrainian border. "Siberian regiments" are being redeployed from the Far Eastern districts, just as they were sent to defend Moscow in 1941. Russian propaganda stirs up the local population with a patriotic fervor, blaming Ukraine and the collective West for the heat of the international situation. The Ukrainian army, one of the strongest in Europe, is preparing to fight back, and the United States is planning to send eighty–five hundred soldiers to help the NATO countries in Europe. The...

    The box office news from earlier this December was mixed. The stupendous success of the latest Spider-Man sequel, No Way Home, indicated that fears of the Omicron variant have not deterred audiences from coming out in the millions: it grossed $260 million at the US box office and $600 million globally. But it also trampled other less franchise-friendly films. Guillermo del Toro’s new picture Nightmare Alley debuted to a dismal $3 million, and Steven Spielberg’s version of West Side Story will be one of the director’s greatest flops, having grossed a mere $18 million in the US so far. The...

Richard Pappas.

    Jake Tapper inadvertently admits COVID security theater.. CNN host Jake Tapper inadvertently revealed the security theater that is ‘COVID-safe’ after he tried to reassure people “we took off our masks just for the photo.” Tapper posted an image of himself and his CNN staffers for a “bake off” event before tweeting, “for anyone concerned, we took off our masks just for the photo, but generally we all wear masks around the office. also, we’re all vaccinated.” ...

    On Monday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Cuomo Primetime,” Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) responded to concerns that she just wants Facebook to censor people on the right more and will end up hurting free speech with her push for greater regulation of the company by stating that someone shouting “fire” in a crowded theater “is not free speech, right? That is not protected speech.” Host Chris Cuomo asked, “So, the conceptual pushback is free speech, and your brothers and sisters on the right will say, you just want them to censor them more. That’s what this is all about for the left....

    A Maine musical theater was forced to cancel its fall schedule after refunding $36,000 worth of tickets in the days since announcing a COVID-19 vaccination policy, according to a report. The Brunswick-based Maine State Music Theatre was buried in refund requests after saying on Friday that theater-goers would have to prove they’ve either been vaccinated or tested negative for the coronavirus, The Portland Press Herald reported. “Not selling a ticket is bad,” artistic director Dale Clark told the newspaper. “Having to refund a ticket that you have already sold, that’s a lot worse.” Clark blamed pushback against the new policy...

    More than 156 million people in the U.S. have been fully vaccinated. But even though the Covid-19 vaccines are very effective against all the known coronavirus variants, including the highly transmissible delta variant that is spreading rapidly, some communities and physicians are urging a return to masking. [cut] Dr. Andy Dunn, a family physician and chief of staff at Wyoming Medical Center in Casper, wants vaccinated people to continue with masking. "These variants are going to find a way" to survive, Dunn said. "Do whatever it takes for Covid to go away," he added. "If I had to jump on...
