The Brew: Happy Groundhog Day!

By Al Perrotta Published on February 2, 2024

It’s Groundhog Day! If Joe Biden pops out of his basement and sees his shadow it means six more weeks of illegal migrant caravans crossing our border.

Of course, it really means Punxsutawney Phil gets his yearly moment in the sun. Or in the lack of sun, as the case may be this morning. Forecast for Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, today is cloudy, meaning Punxsutawney Phil won’t see his shadow, which tradition holds means a shorter winter.

PBS Documentary: J6 Committee Hearings Were Propaganda, Committee Admits

Yesterday we posted a new Resolute called “A Swift Idea,” dealing with the “right-wing” “conspiracy theory” that the Deep State is enlisting Taylor Swift to boost Joe Biden’s chances in the fall. It includes a line “Yesterday’s ‘conspiracy theory’ is tomorrow’s, ‘yes, it’s true, but that’s so yesterday.’”

Sure enough, we’ve got another one. A new documentary reveals that the prime time, J6 Committee Hearings were not searches for truth, but fully-scripted propaganda programming. The documentary comes not from Fox Nation, but from PBS’s Frontline. And the revelation from the committee itself.

As The Federalist explains, key committee members admit the show trial was an election year publicity stunt, a 9-part “mini series.”

Not that that’s a shock. What remains troubling is the committee then sought to destroy evidence that contradicted the propaganda message. Evidence that House Republicans were supposed to get. Evidence that could exonerate Trump from the DOJ charges involving J6.

A Week in New America

What a week in New America. You can face 11 years in jail for praying and singing hymns in front of an abortion mill. But come to this country illegally, beat up an NYPD cop, and you’re immediately out on the street with no bail and flipping Americans the bird. And if you are pro-Hamas demonstrators blocking traffic and causing mayhem in the Nation’s Capital? You get a free pass as well from the FBI Director himself.

Walk into the Capitol, exercising your right as an American, and you are hounded, arrested, prosecuted, have your life ruined. Film gay porn in a Senate hearing room and distribute it, no charges. (Yes, news that the former Senate staffer and pal won’t be tried was announced Thursday.)

During a week in the new America, you can rip down statues of America’s founders and go about your day. Decapitate a statue of Satan and you are charged with a hate crime.

Former Military Officer Who Chopped Off Head of Satanic Baphomet Statue in Iowa State House Charged With a Hate Crime

Former Navy officer Michael Cassidy is facing federal hate crime charges for destroying a Baphomet statue placed in the Iowa state capitol by the Satanic Temple over the Christmas holidays. He’s accused of violation of individual rights. The Blaze’s Sara Gonzales finds that odd, “I fail to see the victim here. Is the victim the statue? The victim is the person who created this beautiful statue that nobody wanted?”

Not That We Condone Destruction … Women’s Tampon Machine Put in Boys Bathroom Lasts About 20 Minutes

Last Wednesday, the state of Connecticut forced Brookfield High School to put a women’s tampon machine inside a boy’s bathroom. Wanna guess how long it was intact before students tore it out? 22 minutes. Up at 9:30 a.m., destroyed by 9:52.

Principal Marc Balanda was upset at this “most egregious” mischief. “I am aware that the law says “men’s bathroom” but the actions today that led to vandalism and destruction of property were the work of immature boys, not men.”

Boys will be boys, even when some educators insist that girls will be boys.

A local outlet Inside Investigator got hold of Balanda’s email to the school. Among other things, he wanted to “apologize to those students who are negatively impacted by the lack of availability of menstrual products” … in the boys bathroom. He left off “in the boys bathroom.”

A further example of why you need to vote in your local school board elections: Do you want boys and girls locker rooms in your kid’s school to be changed to Locker Room A and Locker Room B to appease the trans radicals and woke educators? Of course not. Well, it just happened to a high school in Saskatchewan, Canada, as Not The Bee reports. Further proof of why the church isn’t taking care of business? It’s a Catholic school, St. Pius X Catholic School.

Oh, Canada.
