Friends, this week's Newsmaker Show with me and Brian O'Neil features a reflection on the unusually lively Academy Awards broadcast, in which Will Smith slapped Chris Rock on stage. For Will Smith, it was the best of times (he won the best actor Oscar), and the worst of times (his violent outburst was widely condemned). In addition, Brian and I discuss the campaign to delegitimize Justice Clarence Thomas and his wife Ginni, President Biden's boobery in Europe, the MSM's determination not to confront the Hunter Biden scandal, the saliency of the crime wave issue in American and New York State politics, and the progress (or lack thereof) of the January 6th Committee.
When it comes to "This Day in History", Brian and I speculate on what America and the world might have looked like had President Reagan succumbed to John Hinckley's assassination attempt in 1981. Arguably, it wasn't just Reagan who "dodged the bullet" that fateful day!
Tune in today, and be enlightened!
In other news, if you think there's a border crisis now, just you wait! The Biden Administration is brainstorming ways to increase the flow of "migrants" to unheard-of levels. Who knows -- the cross-border invasion might even build to such a crescendo that ABC, NBC, and CBS mention it...briefly.
Have you been yearning for Hillary Clinton and the Dems to be held accountable for the Trump-Russia hoax and the phony Steele Dossier (opposition research masquerading as "intelligence")? Well, good luck to you, but you did get this teeny, tiny bit of vindication today...
Poland has been among the countries most stridently critical of Russia's invasion of Ukraine...probably because Poland thinks it could be next on Putin's "to do" list. Even Poland, though, isn't proposing to stop importing Russian energy immediately. It says it plans to do so by the end of the year. A big help that will be to the Ukrainian people now!
The latest developments at Disney underscore why every parent needs to stop visiting Disney's theme parks and patronizing its current "entertainment" programming. Old Disney fare might be just fine, but the current iteration of Disney is simply beyond the pale. It sees your children and grandchildren as fodder for neo-Marxist brainwashing. Don't give Disney another red cent!!!
Finally, Biden's proposed budget is as woke as you'd expect it to be. Among its priorities, in terms of "equity": we need to send a woman and a "person of color" to the Moon ASAP. Now, don't confuse this with Hitler's proposed budget, which foresees sending ALL people of color to the Moon. That's a whole different thing. (Just thinking out loud, but couldn't we send KBJ to the Moon and leave her there? She likes to be a trendsetter...)
