The Brew: Texas Sends Illegals to the Swamp, Hollywood Won’t Say Gay … When China So Orders

By Al Perrotta Published on April 14, 2022

Happy Thursday!

Starting off with a Brew salute to the men and women in blue.

They Got Their Man

The NYPD has nabbed the suspect in Tuesday’s Brooklyn subway shooting, Frank James. James was arrested without incident after being spotted at a McDonalds in East Village. Or did he turn himself in? The New York Post and Associated Press report James called the Crime Stoppers tip-line and informed police where he was.

James now faces charges of committing a terrorist attack on a transportation system.

As we’ve learned from his social media, James is a virulent racist and black nationalist whose posts are filled with violent rantings. Meaning he could change his name to Joy Reid. And the story will disappear from the MSM by lunch. Just like the case of the Black Nationalist who ran over children and senior citizens at a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

Incidentally, James had been on the FBI’s radar until 2019. Unfortunately, the FBI has had other priorities since: Raiding Project Veritas to get at Ashley Biden’s scandalous diary. Chasing down parents who don’t want their kids sexually groomed and racially stereotyped. Creating a bogus plot to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer to frame a sad little group of folks in an effort to soil Trump before the 2020 election. And, of course, helping gin up the events of January 6.

Am I missing anything?

Even the bird that pooped on Biden is probably getting more FBI attention than this guy did.

New J6 Video Shows Why Pelosi Refused to Release Surveillance Footage

The Feds had at least 20 agents/assets embedded in the crowd at the Capitol building January 6. That according to a new court filing. (Because grandpa singing patriotic songs and expressing his belief the 2020 election was a joke is far more dangerous than some thug on social media issuing racist and violent threats.)

Meanwhile, there’s a reason Nancy Pelosi didn’t want the public to see security footage from January 6. Gateway Pundit has been given access to video squeezed out of the DOJ, to be used by two men charged with J6 offenses.

The video clearly shows Capitol Hill Police not only allowing, or waving through demonstrators-tourists, but at times escorting people from the Capitol’s Upper West Terrace. Only thing they didn’t do was offer foot massages.

Insurrection? The only thing blown up is the Democratic Media Narrative.

Texas Drops Off Illegals in DC

Sure, it’s a stunt. But what a stunt. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott kept his promise to ship illegal immigrants, dumped into his state by the Biden Administration, straight to Washington, D.C. All to protest the White House open border policy. The first bus rolled up about 8 a.m., just blocks from the U.S. Capitol, and let off illegals from Columbia, Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela.

Given how bad the city’s gotten under Mayor Muriel Bowser, dropping them in D.C. might be considered cruel. Since Biden spends most of his time in Delaware anyway, perhaps the next bus should head to his beach house in Rehoboth.

Sorry. This is no laughing matter. The U.S. Border Patrol has reported over a million encounters with illegal immigrants in FY2022 already. A million in six months. And, of course, that doesn’t count those who escaped detection.

The invasion is about to get worse, now that Biden is trashing Trump’s Title 42 order. President Trump put the rule in place to stop illegals from entering the country due to the COVID crisis. Biden’s CDC declared Title 42 was no longer needed. Ergo, we can expect a fresh surge at the border. The White House even admits it.

Biden Extends Useless Travel Mask Mandate

At least the good news is the CDC must think the COVID pandemic is over, or else why lift the order, right?

Wrong. It’s only over for illegal immigrants. Biden’s travel mask mandate, which had been set to expire next Monday, is being extended 15 days to May 3. This, despite protests from the airlines. And a little thing we used to call science.

“This is not evidence-based, but simply more COVID theater,” said Gov. Ron DeSantis.

Tom Cotton was even more blunt: “Joe Biden is dropping COVID restrictions for illegal immigrants at the border. But he’s extending the mask mandate for Americans on planes. Talk about putting Americans last.”

As for whether masks even work, check out this amazing article The Stream posted from Just Facts, called “Famed Bangladesh Mask Study Excluded Crucial Data.” A study that was used to sell the idea that masks worked turns out to be full of more holes than a mobster in a Coppola film.

‘Don’t Say Gay,’ Hollywood Style

Forgotten in the wake of the Will Smith Oscar Slap was the show’s open, featuring hosts Wanda Sykes, Regina Hall and Amy Schumer. Sykes told the crowd, “We’re going to have a great night tonight. And for you people in Florida, we’re going to have a gay night.” The trio then led the crowd in chanting, “Gay! Gay! Gay!”

The idea, of course, was to slam Florida’s deliberately mislabeled “Don’t Say Gay” Bill. Of course, the law has nothing about stopping teachers from saying “gay.”

Why bring it up? Because it turns out Hollywood is the one that has a problem with homosexuality and won’t say “gay” … if their Chinese masters command.

To appease the CCP, Warner Brothers removed two lines from the Chinese release of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore that referenced the Harry Potter character’s past gay relationship.

Not surprisingly, the Variety article downplays the significance of the cut. “Only six seconds of the movie’s 142-minute runtime were removed.” Nothing to see here. Just the iconic Dumbledore character being shoved back into the closet.

We checked Wanda Sykes’ Twitter, Regina Hall’s Twitter, and Amy Schumer’s Twitter. Not a single peep about a Hollywood movie company refusing to say gay.

The rest of the Hollywood crowd seems to have their mouth sealed shut too. Almost like magic.

Perhaps we can start our own chant: “Phonies! Phonies! Phonies!”
