Justice Clarence Thomas Hammers the Media: ‘I’ll Leave the Court When I Do My Job As Poorly As You Do Yours’


Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas hammered the mainstream media during a recent event, stating he’d be willing to leave his seat on the court when his job performance was as bad as theirs.

Thomas, often a target of the liberal media, made his remarks at the Old Park conference on Friday.

The conversation had pivoted to racial inequality and the Supreme Court.

“One of the things I’d say in response to the media is when they talk about, especially early on, about the way I did my job, I said ‘I will absolutely leave the court when I do my job as poorly as you do yours,’” he recalled. “And that was meant as a compliment really.”

The audience erupted in laughter.

Clarence Thomas Savages the Media

I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt – if that is the measuring stick, Justice Clarence Thomas isn’t going anywhere for a very, very long time.

A YouGov poll in 2021 shows Americans have the most favorable opinion of Thomas amongst all Supreme Court justices, with 37% approving of his performance, 33% not sure, and 30% disapproving.

Among Democrats, his approval that year sat at a mere 21% with 53% disapproving. Which, according to longstanding tradition in the media and Democrat Party, means they are racist.

His approval with Republicans was highest at 59%.

By contrast, the media’s approval rating has been cratering for years. In the United States, the nation with a free press as a bedrock, the media ranks last among 46 countries in trust.

Media’s Hatred

The left-wing media has often criticized Justice Clarence Thomas by using racially-charged messaging, something they accuse right-of-center outlets of engaging in.

MSNBC anchor Joy Reid referred to Thomas as “Uncle Clarence,” an apparent reference to Uncle Tom.

The Washington Post, just this past February, had to issue a “clarification” after running a column that claimed Thomas’s rulings “resemble the thinking of White conservatives.”

“The View” co-host Sunny Hostin suggested Thomas “doesn’t really represent the Black community.”

CNN’s Don Lemon asked if it was fair to consider the Supreme Court justice a “sellout” of the black community.

Through it all, Clarence Thomas has handled the media’s racially-tinged criticism with wit and humor.

In 2018, he mocked Senator Cory Booker for his infamous staged ‘Spartacus’ moment, when the Democrat lawmaker threatened to release confidential documents during the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings, insisting that what he was doing was illegal, even though the committee had previously cleared the release of the papers.

“This is about the closest moment I will ever have in my life to an ‘I am Spartacus’ moment,” he declared, quite seriously.

“Honorable – if we could use that word about more people who are in public life, people who actually ask the questions at confirmation hearings, instead of ‘Spartacus,’” Thomas quipped.

Clarence Thomas is only the second black man to serve as a Supreme Court Justice. He is the longest-serving member of the Supreme Court, making him the most senior associate justice on the Court.

He has received the Francis Boyer award, an honor bestowed upon “individuals who have made exceptional practical or scholarly contributions to improved government policy and social welfare.”

MSNBC Does It Again – Pushes Fake Ukraine War Coverage


Another day, another MSNBC analyst shares bizarre fake news from the Ukrainian front. 

One month ago MSNBC contributor Malcolm Nance shared pictures from the woods claiming he was in Ukraine fighting against the Russians.  This was just plain nuts.

Now it’s reported that an MSNBC war expert mistook a video game for Ukraine war footage.  The postmillennial reported:

TRENDING: Project Veritas: Senior Engineer Lashes Out at Elon Musk, Admits “Twitter Does Not Believe in Free Speech,” – ‘We Are All Commie as F*ck’ (VIDEO)

On Monday, retired four-star general and MSNBC “military analyst” Barry R. McCaffrey posted a clip of video game footage to Twitter. Alongside it he claimed it was a display of strength from Ukraine’s air defense. It’s actually footage from a video game.

The clip in question came from YouTube’s “shorts” section, and is titled “Russian MiG-29’s Get Shot Down By Air Defense System | Arma 3 #Shorts #Airdefense #Arma3.”

Benny Johnson on Twitter reported on this war game tweet and shared that the brilliant Max Boot also shared it.

What’s the deal with fake news pushing the war story that Ukraine is winning over Russia?  They use video games and dress up in military gear to make their point.  This is seriously dangerous fake news.

Biden Spox Karine Jean-Pierre: “I Am a Black, Gay, Immigrant Woman


White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Monday took over the press briefings after Psaki exited the position on Friday.

Karine Jean-Pierre wanted the reporters in the briefing room to know how special she is because she is a black lesbian.

“I am obviously acutely aware that my presence at this podium represents a few firsts. I am a black, gay, immigrant woman—the first of all three of those to hold this position, I would not be here today if not for generations of barrier-breaking people before me. I stand on their shoulders.” the 47-year-old daughter of Haitian immigrants said.

So? Who cares.

President Trump Endorses Popular North Carolina Representative Madison Cawthorn


President Trump endorsed popular North Carolina lawmaker Madison Cawthorn on Monday.

Cawthorn is a HUGE target of the left. He’s attractive, brilliant, talented, and charismatic. So they hate him with a passion. And for the past several weeks the far left media has been running a sickening campaign of lies against the young Republican lawmaker.

Cawthorn has been a staunch Trump supporter from Day 1.

This is great news.

Newsmax.com reported:

President Donald Trump is supporting embattled GOP lawmaker Madison Cawthorn before the North Carolina primary despite a string of embarrassing incidents for the freshman representative.

“When Madison was first elected to Congress, he did a great job,” Trump said in a post on Truth Social, the social media platform he founded last year. “Recently, he made some foolish mistakes, which I don’t believe he’ll make again…let’s give Madison a second chance!”

Cawthorn, 26, was cited three weeks ago for possession of a dangerous weapon at Charlotte Douglas International Airport when a loaded handgun was found in his belongings at a security checkpoint.

Cawthorn was also stopped last year by TSA agents for carrying a 9 mm handgun onto a flight out of Asheville, North Carolina.

In March, he was stopped for speeding and criminally charged with driving with a revoked license.

Obama’s Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke Now Warning Of Coming Stagflation Under Biden


Obama’s Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke is now warning that stagflation is coming under Joe Biden.

Bernanke is the latest in a line of former Obama officials to issue warnings about where the economy is headed under Biden.

This may be the worst one so far however, because of what Bernanke is predicting. This is not good.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

TRENDING: Project Veritas: Senior Engineer Lashes Out at Elon Musk, Admits “Twitter Does Not Believe in Free Speech,” – ‘We Are All Commie as F*ck’ (VIDEO)

Even Obama’s Fed Chairman Predicts Biden Stagflation

Former Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke, who served under former presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, says the United States is likely in for 1970s-style “stagflation” under President Joe Biden, the New York Times reported Monday.

Bernanke, the Fed’s chairman during the Great Recession that began in 2008, said he hopes Chairman Jerome Powell can reduce inflation without taking the extreme measures of the 1970s or causing a recession.

“Even under the benign scenario,” however, the country will probably go through “a period in the next year or two where growth is low, unemployment is at least up a little bit, and inflation is still high,” Bernanke predicted. “So you could call that stagflation.”

Bernanke is not the only Obama administration official to predict worsening inflation under Biden. Former Obama economic adviser Steven Rattner in March called rising costs “Biden’s inflation.” Former Treasury secretary Lawrence Summers, who served as Obama’s director of the National Economic Council, has warned for at least a year about Biden’s economic policies, blaming the president’s American Rescue Plan for skyrocketing inflation and blasting Biden’s plan to cancel student loans.

Bernanke also criticized Biden’s plan to cancel hundreds of billions of dollars in loans, calling the idea “very unfair.”

Is anyone in Washington listening?

Biden is a disaster. The sooner he is voted out of office, the better.

NY Budget Spends $820M on Medicaid for Illegal Immigrants, NFL Stadium


By Adam Andrzejewski for RealClearPolicy

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul recently signed into law a $220 billion budget riddled with wasteful spending, including $220 million for free Medicaid for illegal immigrants and a $600 million subsidy for a new Buffalo Bills stadium, according to the New York Post.

Federal law prohibits federal tax dollars from going toward Medicaid for illegal immigrants, so New York taxpayers will pick up the tab for free healthcare for up to 20,000 illegal immigrants living in the Empire State.

Those making less than $18,754 would qualify for the program, though many other details regarding eligibility have yet to be announced.

Hochul, a Buffalo resident, pushed for her pet project of giving $600 million to gift the NFL a new stadium, and is part of why the budget was delayed for days.

In addition to state funding, Eerie County will contribute $250 million to the project, making it the largest public subsidy for a stadium in the U.S., according to Bloomberg. The NFL and the Bills will only pay $550 million toward the new stadium.

The New York State budget also gave $350 million in capital funding to the New York City Housing Authority, which is struggling financially, as thousands of residents are behind on rent payments.

New York state already has some of the highest debt. The last thing New York needs is more wasteful spending that continues to burden future generations.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis Signs Bill Banning “Picketing and Protesting” Outside a Private Home


Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill into law on Monday that prohibits “picketing and protesting” outside a private residence.

Governor Ron DeSantis signed House Bill 1571 in the wake of abortion protests. The bill will make it unlawful to picket outside Florida residences and be considered a second-degree misdemeanor.

“Sending unruly mobs to private residences, like we have seen with the angry crowds in front of the homes of Supreme Court justices, is inappropriate,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “This bill will provide protection to those living in residential communities and I am glad to sign it into law.”

The new law will take on October 1.

TRENDING: Project Veritas: Senior Engineer Lashes Out at Elon Musk, Admits “Twitter Does Not Believe in Free Speech,” – ‘We Are All Commie as F*ck’ (VIDEO)

ABC7 reported:

Anyone who protests in front of a private residence in Florida can face jail time and fines under a bill Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis signed Monday.

The legislation makes it a second-degree misdemeanor to protest in a manner that is aimed at intentionally harassing or disturbing someone in their home. Violators face 60 days in jail and fines of up to $500.

Protesters can only be arrested after ignoring law enforcement’s orders to disperse, however.

The governor said the new law will prevent protests in Florida like those waged by abortion rights protesters in front of U.S. Supreme Court justices’ homes in Virginia.

As the Gateway Pundit previously reported, over 400 pro-abortion protests were taking place nationwide on Saturday, kicking off what the media is calling the “Summer of Rage.”

The protests were organized by Planned Parenthood, the Women’s March, and other pro-abortion groups.

Elon Musk Dunks On Biden, Surprises Some With His Views On Trump


Free speech warrior and billionaire Elon Musk tweeted his opinion on President Joe Biden’s performance on Friday, (he’s not impressed) as well as his commitment to restore former president Donald Trump’s Twitter account.

It was perhaps his views on President Trump that were more surprising than his views on Biden – Musk is apparently not a fan of Trump’s “divisiveness.”

Big Tech has previously censored certain political stories – look no further than Hunter Biden’s laptop – and views in the name of “disinformation.” Musk’s commitment to restore free speech has many liberals up in arms and threatening to leave Twitter altogether.  

Musk Not Impressed with Biden Reforms

Musk tweeted on Thursday that, “Biden’s mistake is that he thinks he was elected to transform the country, but actually everyone just wanted less drama.”

Musk’s critique may be a reference to the Biden administration’s mission to transfer America’s oil dependency overseas as gas prices continue to reach record highs.

Just this week the Biden Administration canceled three pending oil and gas drilling leases in Alaska and the Gulf of Mexico amid rising energy prices. It seems that the driving force behind every policy decision of the Biden Administration is its commitment to combat climate change, at any cost to hard working Americans.

Despite the fact that Musk runs several companies dedicated to transforming how energy is used, he had previously blasted the Biden administration’s energy policies as consumers got slammed from high prices:

Twitter Deal Paused, Musk Still Committed to the Purchase

On Friday, news broke that Musk’s deal to purchase Twitter for $44 billion is on hold while a more accurate count of spam accounts is collected.

In the original deal, Twitter reported that 5% of accounts are fake, but some estimates say it’s as high as 30%. The news caused Twitter stock to take a slight dive until Musk tweeted that he is “still committed to the acquisition.”

Musk explained that he plans to do a test of 100 random Twitter users to gauge how many of their followers are legit and how many are spambots. When asked why he didn’t consider this issue before making the deal, he replied that he “relied on Twitter’s public filings.”

He then joked that, “the bots are angry about being counted.”

Biden’s “Free Speech Czar” Weighs In

Nina Jankowicz, the director of the controversial new Disinformation Governance Board in the Department of Homeland Security, has her own ideas to improve Twitter. She is advocating for a feature on Twitter where verified users – “blue checks” – could edit other people’s Tweets in a similar way to Wikipedia.

“If President [Donald] Trump were still on Twitter and tweeted a claim about voter fraud, someone could add context from one of the 60 lawsuits that went through the court or something that an election official said…so that people have a fuller picture rather than just an individual claim on a tweet,” she said in a recent Zoom chat.

This suggestion falls in with the narrative that many conservatives feel Twitter is a place where the mainstream media censors certain stories. Many of these were true stories, such as the Hunter Biden laptop story that earned the New York Post a temporary ban from Twitter.

Free Speech Divide

Users want a new Twitter experience with fewer spambots and fake followers, and more freedom to share ideas on all sides of the political spectrum.

“When Elon Musk agreed to buy Twitter, I think it really exposed this fundamental free speech divide in this country where conservatives now want less political censorship from Big Tech,” FCC commissioner Brendan Carr told the Ruthless Podcast.

Of the left’s view, Carr said, “They’ve been very afraid about this because they want to continue to drive the political narrative, forcing all sorts of reactions. They’ve even come to the FCC asking us to block the [Twitter] transaction.”
