Blumenthal: Republicans Are ‘Complicit in All These Shootings’

…Blumenthal said, “In Boulder, that shooter is a deeply disturbed man who became a mass killer because he had an assault weapon that can kill people with the efficiency and speed meant for the battlefield. So guns make all these problems more fatally and deadly, especially for domestic violence victims who then can be killed, five times more likely to be killed in those situations. That’s why we need to make sure we adopt these common-sense measures.” … He added, “We should not be putting aside Republicans. They bear responsibilities as well.

Did you catch that? Gun-owner? Republican? Guilty by association.

Race Baiters Delete Tweets, Issue Corrections After Frenzied Effort To Pin Boulder Shooting To White Supremacy

…Kamala Harris’ niece, Meena Harris, said Tuesday morning she deleted a tweet about the suspect.

“I deleted a previous tweet about the suspect in the Boulder shooting,” Harris wrote. “I made an assumption based on his being taken into custody alive and the fact that the majority of mass shootings in the U.S. are carried out by white men.”…

Writer Don Winslow said that “police have taken him into custody” translates to “he was white.”…

21-year-old Ahmad Al Aliwi Al-Issa has been charged with 10 counts of first-degree murder.…

And his victims were all white. And so on, ad nauseum.

China: Uyghurs Opposing Their Own Genocide Are Part of ‘Anti-Asian Hate Wave’
John Hayward, Breitbart, Mar 23, 2021

China’s state-run Global Times pounced (to borrow a phrase popular with the American media in other contexts) on some Uyghur activists who drove past a “Stop Asian Hate” rally in Washington, D.C., on Sunday, shouting epithets such as “Fuck China!”

So in just two months — two months — Joe Biden is already destroying U.S. energy independence, effectively erasing the southern border in favor of the chaos, surges, and gang warfare of “open borders,” spending and taxing the U.S. into financial oblivion, and destroying the American election system to ensure a permanent one-party state.

Or, in other words: This is a dead grotty presidency, man. Grotesque.

Part of Wright brothers' 1st airplane on NASA's Mars chopper
Helicopter on Mars

NASA’s experimental Martian helicopter holds a small swatch of fabric from the 1903 Wright Flyer, the space agency revealed Tuesday. The helicopter, named Ingenuity, hitched a ride to the red planet with the Perseverance rover, arriving last month.

Ingenuity will attempt the first powered, controlled flight on another planet no sooner than April 8. It will mark a "Wright brothers' moment," noted Bobby Braun, director for planetary science at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

The Carillon Historical Park in Dayton, Ohio, the Wrights' hometown, donated the postage-size piece of muslin from the plane's bottom left wing, at NASA's request.

The swatch made the 300 million-mile journey to Mars with the blessing of the Wright brothers' great-grandniece and great-grandnephew, said park curator Steve Lucht.
