Hunter Biden Seeks to Delay Paternity Deposition Until After Key Primary Votes
[Free Beacon] Hunter Biden is asking a judge to delay his child support deposition scheduled for next week in Arkansas until April 1‐a date when the key early primaries for his father Joe Biden's presidential campaign will be finished‐according to a court motion filed by his attorney on Tuesday.

Brent M. Langdon, Hunter Biden's attorney, argued in the court filing that his client was unable to appear in Little Rock, Arkansas for the looming deposition next week, calling it "unduly burdensome and oppressive."

Lawyers for Lunden Alexis Roberts, who is the mother of Biden's 18-month-old baby and who is fighting him for child support, had offered Biden the option of doing the court-ordered deposition on March 3‐which is Super Tuesday‐or on March 5.

New California bill would require gender neutral sections in retail stores
[10NEWS] A new Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party, bill would require some retailers to have gender neutral floor space inside their stores, Politico reports.

The bill, called Assembly Bill 2826, was introduced by Assemblymember Evan Low, a Democrat from Campbell.

According to Politico, retailers would be able to sell the same products, as long as they dedicate space where customers can find clothes and toys regardless of whether the items have been marketed to boys or girls.

"Keeping similar items that are traditionally marketed either for girls or for boys separated makes it more difficult for the consumer to compare the products and incorrectly implies that their use by one gender is inappropriate," the bill states.

The bill stipulates that the rules would only apply to retail department stores with 500 or more employees.

If passed, retailers who fail to follow the new rules would be liable for a civil penalty beginning on January 1 of 2023.

Court rules in favor of Trump in ‘sanctuary cities' grant fight
[LA Times] The Trump administration can withhold millions of dollars in law enforcement grants to force states to cooperate with U.S. immigration enforcement, a federal appeals court in New York ruled Wednesday in a decision that conflicted with three other federal appeals courts.

The decision by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan overturned a lower court's decision ordering the administration to release funding to New York City and seven states ‐ New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Washington, Massachusetts, Virginia and Rhode Island.

The states and city sued the U.S. government after the Justice Department announced in 2017 that it would withhold grant money from cities and states until they gave federal immigration authorities access to jails and provide advance notice when someone in the country illegally is about to be released.

Before the change, cities and states seeking grant money were required only to show they were not preventing local law enforcement from communicating with federal authorities about the immigration status of people who were detained.

At the time, then-Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions said: "So-called ‘sanctuary' policies make all of us less safe because they intentionally undermine our laws and protect illegal aliens who have committed crimes."

The 2nd Circuit said the plain language of relevant laws make clear that the U.S. attorney general can impose conditions on states and municipalities receiving money.

And it noted that the U.S. Supreme Court has repeatedly observed that the federal government maintains broad power over states when it comes to immigration policies.

In the past two years, federal appeals courts in Chicago, Philadelphia and San Francisco have ruled against the federal government by upholding lower-court injunctions placed on the enforcement of some or all of the challenged conditions.

The appeals rulings pertain to the issuance of the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program.

Created in 2006, it is the vehicle through which Congress annually dispenses over $250 million in federal funding for state and local criminal justice efforts.

The Byrne Program was named for New York City Police Officer Edward Byrne, who at age 22 was shot to death while guarding the home of a Guyanese immigrant cooperating with authorities investigating drug trafficking.

Biden says he worked on 2016 climate accord with leader who died in 1997
[NYPOST] Gaffe-prone former veep Joe Foreign Policy Whiz Kid Biden
...Old, boring, a plagiarist, fond of hair sniffing and grabbing the protruding parts of women, and not whatcha call brilliant...
put his foot in it again on Monday — claiming to have worked on the 2016 Paris Climate Accord with a Chinese leader who died 19 years earlier.

During a campaign stop in South Carolina ahead of the state’s primary on Saturday, Biden told a crowd his experience on the world stage as vice president under Barack Obama made him the right person to defeat President Trump.

“One of the things I’m proudest of is getting passed, getting moved, getting in control of the Paris Climate Accord,” Biden told the crowd in a video circulating on Twitter.

“I’m the guy who came back after meeting with Deng Xiaoping and making the case that I believe China will join if we put pressure on them. We got almost 200 nations to join,” he said.
Joe also ensured peace in Kashmir when he and Benjamin Disreali met with Mahatma Gandhi and Muhammad Ali Jinni in secret talks at Camp David.

Pete Buttigieg Busted for Parroting Famous Barack Obama Speech
[BREITBART] Critics of former Mayor Pete Buttigieg
...the testicleless mayor of South Bend, Indiana, since 2012. Buttigieg graduated from Harvard College and, on a Rhodes Scholarship, from Pembroke College, Oxford. From 2007 to 2010, he worked at McKinsey and Company, a consulting firm. From 2009 to 2017 Buttigieg served as an intelligence officer in the United States Navy Reserve, attaining the rank of lieutenant and deploying to Afghanistan in 2014. Buttigieg was first elected mayor of South Bend in 2011 and was reelected in 2015. During his second term, he announced he was gay. Buttigieg also campaigned for Indiana state treasurer in 2010 and for chair of the Democratic National Committee in 2017, losing both elections. He is running for the Dem nomination in 2020 on the theory that being mayor of a nondescript medium sized city is qualification to run the country...
argue he plagiarized former President Barack Obama in a recent speech that sounds remarkably similar.

After losing the Nevada caucuses on Saturday, Buttigieg shared a story about how “one light” from a supporter’s iPhone after the power went off at a campaign event, sparked a movement that would light up the entire country.

He said:

It just took one person, one person who started it and then a bunch of others began to do the same. And if we can light up a high school gym like that we can light the neighborhood. If we can light up a neighborhood we can light up a city. If we can light up the city, we can light up this whole country, and if we light up this country then everyone can make sure this country we love shines as a beacon around the world once more.

Buttigieg’s speech was compared to former President Barack Obama’s speech in 2008 highlighting a story of a lone supporter that shouted “fired up ready to go” in a gym at an event as he was personally struggling to build his presidential campaign.

Obama said:

It shows you what one voice can do. One voice can change a room, and if one voice can change a room, then it can change a city, and if it can change a city, it can change a state, and if it change a state, it can change a nation, and if it can change a nation, it can change the world.

The similarities between the two speeches were cut into a video by The Recount after people on social media accused the Buttigieg campaign of plagiarism.

Arlo Guthrie should sue.
f you're in a situation like that there's only one thing you can do, and that's walk into the shrink wherever you are, just walk in say "Shrink: You can get anything you want, at Alice's restaurant."
And walk out.

You know, if one person, just one person does it they may think he's really sick, and they won't take him. And if two people, two people do it, in harmony, they may think they're both faggots and they won't take either of them and three people do it, three, can you imagine, three people walking in, singing a bar of Alice's Restaurant and walking out. They may think it's an organization. And can you, can you imagine fifty people a day, I said fifty people a day walking in singin' a bar of Alice's Restaurant and walking out. And friends, they may thinks it's a movement!

And that's what it is, the Alice's Restaurant Anti-Massacree Movement, and all you got to do to join is sing it the next time it comes around on the guitar, with feeling.

#11  Look at that article about him wanting for force Christian orgs to hire LGM&MBLT people. If that is allowed to stand, then forcing companies to compose themselves of a certain % of the scrabble sex group.

Imagine having a set of employees you are forced to employ, and they know it. They can do what they want without punishment and at a higher wage. Furthermore, if you look at them crossways, or they don't like you, or have an agenda, they could threaten to quit en-masse, bringing both discrimination cases and federal employment law violations against your company and individual employers, maybe even board members and stock holders.

The ambitious could work their way up the ladder quickly under the cover of law, and on the way eject the classic capitalists, those who just want to do business, and the modern capitalists, those who think a broad product sells better by concentrating on a particular market slice (getting 80% of 1/4 of the pie rather than 20% of the whole pie through focused branding aka get woke).

In this way, the capitalists are ejected and replaced by party agents; the party controls the business.

If you are like but Disney etc is already like this, no. At the end of the day, those employers still consider that business as theirs and that money must be made. The revolution eats its own, and controllers must be put in place who regard the entity as an extension of the party.

Conquered businesses actively support party politics with money and reflective advertising and company policies.

Resistant businesses can get the screws put on them until they break.

Now, say the entity decides it is time to do away with firearms. Foreign builds are easy, can't be imported. Domestically, the LITBBQ agents forced to be employed in the company are activated, the tried and true method of ruining the business with endless lawsuits and purposefully harmful interior business decisions bankrupt all firearm and ammo manufacturers large enough to be caught in the forced to hire dragnet. Smaller companies would not be able to keep up with demand without incredible price increases (demand) and long waits as to increase production, more employees would qualify them for the LBGTT quota.

Lapid: Yes, anyone but Bibi
[Arutz 7] - MK Yair Lapid, one of the senior members of the Blue and White party, explained in a post published on Tuesday and entitled "Yes! Anyone but Bibi!!!" the reasons for his party vetoing a government led by Binyamin Netanyahu.

"Over the rudeness, the lies, the unscrupulousness. Over the fact that he’s badmouthing good and decent people and not thinking that there is something wrong with it.

For having surrounded himself with corrupt people who milk the country.

For understanding that if Israel remains a democracy, he will go to prison. So he decided to destroy democracy. He will destroy the court, enact immunity and an Overrule Clause, pass the French law. He no longer even denies that he wants to be Erdogan.

For abuse of security, of health, of poverty. Everything for the sake of politics.

For the burnout. What appeared shocking and unimaginable yesterday - indictments, submarines - became a reality today.

Sounds Familiar
