MSNBC’s Joy Reid calls Republican Party a ‘creepy little COVID-loving death cult’ in ‘vile’ on-air rant — and gets blasted for it

Fresh off her war of words with rapper Nicki Minaj — whom she accused of being culpable for the possible deaths of black people by casting doubts on COVID-19 vaccines — MSNBC’s Joy Reid widened her aim Wednesday and took on the Republican Party.

What did she say?

Reid — appearing more than a bit wide-eyed and ravenous in front of the camera — delivered what may be the winning entry for Hyperbolic Leftist Rant of the Year.

“OK, we get it!” Reid hollered at the GOP faithful, who no doubt were glued to their TV screens. “COVID is the precious, and you love it. You love COVID so much you want it to spread into schools, at the office, in the Walmart, on the cruise ships, and at the club. That great spongy ball with the red spikes? You want it pumping through your veins with an ivermectin chaser. Why do you love it so daggone much? Well, we have absolutely no bloody idea.”

Then after calling the GOP “weirdos” and pointing out some COVID-related stats and tragedies, Reid noted that far-left California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s strict COVID policies — well, except for the ones that apparently don’t apply to him — are what helped him avoid a recall this week.

“Republicans, your thirst for COVID is why you lost,” Reid continued. “Nobody likes your policies that threaten our safety and our kids. You may want COVID. You may want to ingest horse de-wormer and attend far too many funerals, but we don’t.”

She then added to the GOP that “your creepy little COVID-loving death cult ways are not gonna work for you at the ballot box next year. In fact, it’s political suicide — and also apparently talk-radio suicide, because your brilliant little COVID plan is killing your right-wing hosts.”

How did observers react?

Reid has an untold number of fans in her leftist camp who’d love it if she ramped up her ranting, but not everyone was down with her colorful characterizations of Republicans:

  • “Why is she allowed to speak like this on air, spreading vile, lying accusations against people she doesn’t agree with, likening them to criminals or worse?” one commenter asked. “She’s one of the nastiest humans on TV and social media. Many have health-based reasons to not take the shot, many had COVID.”
  • “It is interesting to me that liberals, particularly Democrat liberals, seem to project their OWN feelings and beliefs onto everyone else,” another user noted. “Dems are the lovers of COVID because they can continue to fear monger and dictate to control others. Joy, go take a valium and seek help.”
  • “You absolutely are mental and are contributing to the hate and divisiveness that permeates our country. You’re not reporting … not a journalist; [you’re] a lemming for your bosses who just want ratings,” another commenter contended. “To lump every Republican together is wrong. Your a bad person. Go away!”
  • “I had COVID, and no, we don’t want COVID. What kind of insane person would willingly pump COVID in their veins?” another user wondered. “Watching friends and family struggle and die. Why can’t anyone show some humanity toward fellow humans? Oh right, Democrats only know how to hate.”

Judicial Watch obtains FDA emails detailing purchases of aborted fetal tissue for ‘humanized mice’ research

The conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch obtained 198 pages of records and communications from the federal government that details how the U.S. Food and Drug Administration procured human fetal tissue from aborted babies for research with “humanized mice.”

The records were handed over after the group filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services seeking communications and other related documents between Advanced Bioscience Resources, a provider of organs and other human fetal tissue harvested from aborted babies, and the FDA.

“After successfully opposing the FDA’s redaction of certain information from its records, a federal court ordered HHS to release additional information about its purchases of organs harvested from aborted human fetuses – including ‘line item prices,’ or the price per organ the government paid to ABR,” Judicial Watch said. “The court also found ‘there is reason to question’ whether the transactions violate federal law barring the sale of fetal organs. Documents previously uncovered in this lawsuit show that the federal government demanded the purchased fetal organs be ‘fresh and never frozen.’).”

Most of the released records are emails and attachments from Perrin Larton, a procurement manager for Advanced Bioscience Resources, and FDA research veterinary medical officer Kristina Howard.

The emails were sent between 2013 and 2018, the year President Donald Trump’s administration canceled the FDA’s contracts with ABR. The Trump administration in 2019 banned federal funding for research that used human fetal tissue from aborted babies, but in April the Biden administration reversed Trump’s policy.

The emails detail cost estimates, purchase orders, kinds of fetal parts purchased (fetal livers, thymuses), and related matters.

“The records include an FDA generated contract with ABR, based on a ‘requisition’ it issued on July 27, 2012, for $12,000 worth of ’tissue procurement for humanized mice,’ indicates the requisition was for a ‘non-competitive award.’ Although the initial award was for $12,000, the total estimated amount of funds allocated for the requisition was $60,000,” Judicial Watch reported.

One email described ABR as “the only company in the U.S. capable of supplying tissues suitable for HM research.”

“No other company or organization is capable of fulfilling the need,” the FDA wrote.

Another email describes how mice are “humanized” with fetal tissue:

The HM [humanized mice] are created by surgical implantations of human tissue into mice that have multiple genetic mutations that block the development of the mouse immune system at a very early stage. The absence of the mouse immune system allows the human tissues to grow and develop into functional human tissues … In order for the humanization to proceed correctly we need to obtain fetal tissue with a specific set of specialized characteristics.

“Chopping up aborted human beings for their organs and tissue is a moral and legal outrage,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said. “This issue should be front and center in any debate about America’s barbaric abortion industry.”

Judicial Watch, Daily Caller News Foundation Take University Of Delaware To Court Over Biden’s Senate Records

Judicial Watch, Daily Caller News Foundation Take University Of Delaware To Court Over Biden’s Senate Records

Attorneys representing the Daily Caller News Foundation and Judicial Watch took to court Wednesday arguing for access to records and communications about a treasure trove of documents related to President Joe Biden’s time as Senator housed at the University of Delaware.

The organizations were appealing a January decision by the Superior Court of Delaware which denied them access under the Delaware Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) to the gift agreement between the university and Biden when he donated his Senate records as well as communications between the university and Biden and his representatives about the release of his Senate records.

The university said it will only make the documents public two years after Biden retires from public life. Oral arguments Wednesday centered on whether documents stored in publicly-funded institutions like universities could be accessed through a FOIA request.

“How the University of Delaware is storing, maintaining, processing, and releasing President Biden’s Senate records is of concern to the citizens of Delaware and all Americans,” President of Judicial Watch Tom Fitton said in a statement to the DCNF. “During today’s hearing, it seemed as though the Delaware Supreme Court is skeptical of the unusual secrecy in the handling of these records by the University.”

Bill Green, the attorney representing the DCNF and Judicial Watch, argued that documents stored in public universities are accessible via FOIA. (RELATED: Numerous Board Members Have Monetary Ties To Biden)

“Shelf space has value, utilities have value, real estate has value,” Green said Wednesday, pointing to the 4,000 cubic feet necessary to house more than 30 years worth of documents.

Green argued that the only evidence the University of Delaware submitted proving no public funds were used to house the documents are unsworn statements by university officials rather than affidavits, which he argued are insufficient. He also argued the Delaware Superior Court’s ruling unfairly shifted the burden of proof to the plaintiffs, maintaining that the university, as the custodian of the public documents, had to show that public funds were not used to house Biden’s records.

“The University of Delaware’s argument that a public university housing public records is not subject to public disclosure requirements would be comical if all this weren’t so serious,” Daily Caller News Foundation President Neil Patel said in a statement. “We are hopeful that the court will not allow this attempt to hide President Biden’s rightfully public information to stand.”

Bill Manning, the attorney representing the University of Delaware, argued Wednesday that whether or not state funds were used to house the documents is irrelevant. He maintained that if all documents housed at state expense were accessible under FOIA, that would mean that any and all documents housed in publicly-funded universities could be accessed by the public.

The records may contain information related to Tara Reade, a woman who accused Biden of sexually assaulting her in 1993. Reade said that information related to the incident could be stored at the university.

The DCNF and Judicial Watch had each filed FOIA requests for the records in April 2020, arguing that the records should be publicly available as their housing was paid for with public funds. The university denied the request, stating that “[t]here have been no expenditures of public funds regarding or related to the Joseph R. Biden, Jr. Senatorial papers.”

Both the DCNF and Judicial Watch filed petitions in Delaware’s Office of the Attorney General to determine whether the university’s decision violated FOIA, but the attorney general denied both petitions, siding with the university’s position that the records were not related to the expenditure of state funds.

The organizations then filed a joint appeal of the attorney general’s decision, arguing that the housing of Biden’s Senate records at the University of Delaware must have been paid for by public funds and pointing out that the university receives roughly $120 million in state funds each year. However, the ruling was upheld by the Superior Court of Delaware in January.

VIDEO: Black Lives Matter protesters call NYPD cop the N-word — and the officer has to be restrained by his colleagues

While openly socialist U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) was
attracting negative attention for her “Tax the Rich” gown inside the Met Gala earlier this week, Black Lives Matter protesters drew some attention of their own as they demonstrated against police outside the lavish New York City event, Fox News reported.

Protesters chanted the name of Mike Rosado — a Bronx man who died last month in a shootout with police, the cable network noted — and a megaphone-toting officer told the protesters they were being arrested for disorderly conduct.

Some major scuffles broke out, with officers restraining a protester while the crowd told cops to “let go of her!” Fox News said.

Protester calls cop the N-word

But one of the more eye-catching and ear-catching moments occurred when at least two of the protesters called a black cop the N-word, after which the officer had to be restrained by his colleagues and was led away from the conflict.

The clip begins with a protester yelling “don’t let that [N-word] f***in’ walk away!” in reference to the black officer; the protester also accused the cop of putting his “hands on people.”

Another protester can be heard yelling “you done [N-word], you done!”

As the protesters appeared to get closer to the officer in question, the cop began to approach the protesters — and then was quickly pulled away by at least three of his colleagues.

As the groups separated, one of the protesters hollered at the cop in question, “F*** you, bitch-ass [N-word]!”

The clip showing the aforementioned action is the second one below. (Content warning: Racial slurs, profanity):

The individual who posted the above videos accused the cop of being “absolutely rabid” and “out of control.”

Below are two other videos showing the protesters in action and the cops’ response to them. (Content warning: Profanity):

Anything else?

According to
Patch, the protests started Monday afternoon in Lower Manhattan, then moved uptown by around 6 p.m. The outlet said protesters demanded defunding and then abolishment of the NYPD, among other things.

Patch, citing an NYPD spokesperson, said nine people were taken into custody near Fifth Avenue and East 81st Street, but there was no indication if any were charged with crimes.

Mayor tells school board members to resign or ‘be charged’ after saying judge confirmed ‘child pornography’ was part of high school’s college-credit course

Mayor Craig Shubert of Hudson, Ohio, sat in front of a microphone and issued a brief but pointed public statement to the members of the city’s board of education earlier this week.

“It has come to my attention that your educators are distributing essentially what is child pornography in the classroom,” Shubert said during Monday night’s meeting. “I’ve spoken to a judge this evening. She’s already confirmed that. So I’m going to give you a simple choice: Either you choose to resign from this board of education, or you will be charged. Thank you.”

The mayor’s jaw-dropping ultimatum to the board members of Hudson City Schools drew quite a bit of applause and cheers from those gathered in the room.

What’s the background?

According to the Akron Beacon Journal, numerous parents complained about writing prompts in the “642 Things to Write About” book that’s part of a college-credit course — Writing in the Liberal Arts II — at Hudson High School.

More from the paper:

Parents said there was a prompt that asked students to “write a sex scene you wouldn’t show your mom,” and another which said “rewrite the sex scene from above into one that you’d let your mom read.”

Another prompt asked students to drink a beer and describe how it tastes. Parents said they felt these writing prompts and others were not appropriate for high school students.

Shubert said he wants all five board members to resign by the end of September, the Beacon Journal noted.

However, the paper added that it’s unclear whether board members can be held criminally liable for classroom material.

“We’ve never heard of criminal charges [filed against a school board] for curriculum,” Ralph Lusher, staff attorney with the Ohio School Boards Association, told the Beacon Journal.

Lusher added to the paper that he can’t determine if the material “would cross a line or not” since he hasn’t yet seen it.

But some individuals who have viewed the material were decidedly outraged by it. One person said he was “appalled” by the content and asked for video cameras in the classroom so parents can monitor what’s being taught to their children, the Beacon Journal said, adding that another speaker said it’s “disgusting” and amounted to “grooming.”

What did the school district have to say?

Superintendent Phil Herman said in a statement that the “inappropriate and offensive writing prompts” were part of a supplemental resource used in the high school senior-level College Credit Plus writing sections, the paper reported.

“The district immediately determined this writing resource should not be in the hands of our students, and on Monday, collected the books from the students enrolled in the course,” Herman added, according to the Beacon Journal. “It is important to note that at no time were any of these inappropriate writing prompts assigned as part of the class.”

More from the paper:

High school principal Brian Wilch said the class is offered in association with Hiram College but is taught at the high school. He also said the “642 Things” book has been used in the past.

Wilch told the board Monday that he and his administrative team apologized to the students’ parents. The school is searching for replacement material that is suitable for high school students, he said.

“We did not exercise due diligence when we reviewed this resource and as a result, we overlooked several writing prompts among the 642 that are not appropriate for our high school audience,” Wilch added, according to the Beacon Journal. “… We feel terrible. At no time were any of these inappropriate prompts selected or discussed, but still they were there and they were viewable, and you can’t unsee them.”

Herman also told the paper that an independent investigation is under way “to determine how these supplemental materials were reviewed and approved, and if any additional action should be taken.”

“It is clear that as a district we did not properly review this resource, and for that, we sincerely apologize,” the superintendent also said, according to the Beacon Journal. “We take great pride in the instructional experience of our students and take very seriously anything that negatively impacts our mission to provide an educational program that provides for the development of each child in a safe, nurturing environment. Again, we are reviewing our approval processes to make sure that nothing similar happens in the future.”

Thug punches 77-year-old woman in face in broad daylight — then rips away her purse and her Bible

New York City police are looking for a man they said punched a 77-year-old woman in the face, after which he ripped away the woman’s purse — along with her Bible.

What are the details?

Police said the man is wanted for robbery after approaching the elderly woman in Queens around noon Sunday, punching her in the face, and then yanking away her purse and Bible.

Police provided video of the incident that shows the assailant fighting the woman for her belongings and violently pulling on the woman’s purse until she no longer can hold on.

What happened to the victim and her attacker?

The woman suffered cuts to her hands and was evaluated on scene by EMS, but police told the New York Post she refused additional medical attention.

The suspect ran off after he took the victim’s belongings, police told the paper, adding that he was still on the loose as of late Monday.

Anything else?

The Post said the clip came from surveillance video, but a number of observers questioned that conclusion — and wondered why no one helped the victim, among other things:

  • “Why didn’t anyone intervene?” one commenter asked. “Was it more important to record the event to get your 15 seconds of fame or to stop the perp to get him 15 years in lockup? SMH!”
  • “So glad you have pieces of s**t filming this and not trying to help her,” another user said. “What a great city and great citizens you have there. Disgusting!”
  • “I’m sure this piece of fecal matter stole the purse just to get a Bible…if only he could read so he could get something to guide him in a different direction,” another commenter wrote.
  • “I hope you catch this one,” another user said. “What a bum, and the person recording is a piece of s**t.”
  • “Good thing everyone stood around and watched; wouldn’t want to actually do anything or help outside of pulling your phone out…” another commenter said. “This is what happens when you encourage crime and let criminals run a city. I always assumed ‘Escape from NY’ was a movie, not a prediction.”

WATCH: Lawyer who sued NY state over vaccine mandate speaks out

(LifeSiteNews) — Attorney Christopher Ferrara talked to LifeSite’s Jim Hale about his latest lawsuit, representing 17 doctors and nurses against the state of New York over COVID-19 vaccination mandates while disallowing religious exemptions.

One day after the lawsuit was filed, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of New York on Tuesday granted a temporary restraining order against Gov. Kathy Hochul of New York.

By order of federal Judge David Hurd, the state has until September 22, 2021, to respond. If the governor’s legal team opposes a conversion of the temporary restraining order into a preliminary injunction, the defense attorneys will need to show cause during an in-person oral argument on September 28.

“Never in the history of New York state, never in the history of the world, has a government sought to forcibly impose mass vaccination on an entire class of people under threat of immediate personal and professional destruction,” Ferrara said when filing the original lawsuit Monday. “This is just another example of how Covid regimes are completely out of control. The federal judiciary has a duty under the Constitution to put a straight jacket on this institutional insanity.”
