Because there’s no anti-Republican insult too vulgar for the likes of John Berman and CNN, New Day devoted a segment this morning to mocking George P. Bush’s unsuccessful effort to get Donald Trump’s endorsement in the Republican primary for attorney general in Texas. Trump overnight endorsed George P.’s primary opponent, incumbent AG Ken Paxton.
At one point, Berman said that Bush spent weeks
“desperately, adamantly, passionately prostrating himself before the former president. Kissing the ring—or the Latin equivalent.”
The Latin equivalent of ring to which Berman was presumably alluding could be “anulus,” and “kissing the ring” translates into “osculatus anulum.” Berman also seems to be mocking the Roman Catholics here, with the tradition of kissing the ring of the Pope.
But even the anulus allusion was insufficient snideness for Berman and sidekick Brianna Keilar. The segment aired a classic Peanuts clip of Charlie Brown attempting to kick the football, only to have Lucy snatch it away, with Charlie tripping and landing flat on his back. Berman helpfully informed the audience: “Charlie Brown is a metaphor for George P., just so people know. Everyone on Earth knew what was going to happen, except for apparently George P. Bush.”
If “everyone on Earth” knew this would happen, wouldn’t “everyone on Earth” also get the old Peanuts analogy of Lucy and the football?
Berman and Keilar then mocked a George P. campaign koozie featuring likenesses of him with Trump. Berman snidely wondered what would be done with the koozies now, with Keilar suggesting they’d make collectors’ items that she and Berman would like to have.
Berman concluded the segment by suggesting that George P. might want to have a new koozie made, featuring Trump’s term for him: “My Bush.” Keilar enthused: “that’s a great koozie. I love it. I love it.”
Were Berman and Keilar stooping for a double-entendre perhaps more vulgar than even “anulus?”
CNN mocking George P. Bush’s unsuccessful effort to secure Donald Trump’s endorsement in the Texas attorney general Republican primary was sponsored in part by Clear Choice, Trivago, and Allstate.
Here’s the transcript.
6:10 am EDT
JOHN BERMAN: So, new this morning, the man that Donald Trump refers to as “my Bush,” now he could call him my diss. George P. Bush, who is running for attorney general in Texas, has spent weeks desperately, adamantly, passionately prostrating himself before the former president. Kissing the ring—or the Latin equivalent—in an apparent effort to win Trump’s endorsement.
This of course is particularly notable since Trump has spent years attacking the Bush family, and brutalizing George P.’s father, Jeb Bush. But no humiliation was too much for George P. to forsake his family in the name of politics.
Bush met with Trump recently in New York, tweeted out this picture. There was a campaign koozie made. Now, when there’s a koozie, you know it’s serious. In some cultures, I think that’s a binding legal agreement.
A source tells CNN that during one meeting that Bush had with Trump, Trump assured him that he would stay out of the attorney general race. But this source also noted that was never going to happen, and you know what, it didn’t. Overnight, Trump announced that he is backing Ken Paxton in the race for attorney general. Humiliation complete. Another source compared the situation to this.
[Cut to Peanuts clip]
CHARLIE BROWN: This time I’m going to kick that football clear to the moon! [Lucy snatches football and Charlie trips and falls]
LUCY: Isn’t it peculiar, Charlie Brown, how some traditions just really fade away.
BRIANNA KEILAR: Charlie Brown should have known better.
BERMAN: Charlie Brown should have known better. Everyone on Earth, save Charlie Brown in this case, and Charlie Brown is a metaphor for —
KEILAR: — Exactly.
BERMAN: — for George P—just so people know. Everyone on Earth knew what was going to happen, except for apparently George P. Bush. And I just, I don’t know what you do with the koozies now.
KEILAR: I mean, those are collectors items. I’ll take one. You’ll take one. That would be lovely.
. . .
He wanted to make a big deal in this race about Paxton’s character. Right? He’d been indicted, he’d been accused by top aides, former top aides, of bribery. And yet the character that I think that really got drawn, you know, really brought into question here, was actually George P. Bush’s.
BERMAN: Maybe George P. needs to get a new koozie that says My Bush, which is what, again, Donald Trump calls him.
KEILAR: Yes. That’s a great koozie.
BERMAN: It is.
KEILAR: I love it. I love it.
Grievance-mongering leftists think everything is “racist” because they look at the whole world through the prism of skin color.
Just ask author and “diversity consultant” Robin DiAngelo, who says comedy is merely a vehicle for white people to express their inherent racism.
“Comedy is, I think, an excuse to get to be racist, right?” DiAngelo said in an April interview with YouTuber Joseph Jaffe uncovered Monday by Fox News.
“I think TV shows like ‘Family Guy’ and ‘South Park’ and maybe a little bit ‘The Simpsons,’ right, allowed white people to be racist self-consciously, right?” she said. “Like, ‘I know I’m being racist and therefore it doesn’t count and it’s OK.'”
The critical race theory advocate said any joke that pokes fun at black people is not benign because it’s “still reinforcing racist tropes and ideologies and stories.”
The self-flagellating white apologist — who wrote the 2018 bestseller “White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism” — has become rich and famous by berating white people about their supposed “white privilege” and “oppressor” status.
Like a condescending white liberal unconsciously projecting her own racism, DiAngelo said anyone who makes a joke about black people is “punching down.”
However, she said it’s OK to mock white people as much you want because that’s “punching up.”
“There is a concept in comedy called punching up, not down,” DiAngelo said. “So, you know, if you want to punch up, there are very different power dynamics and it doesn’t hurt in the same way.
“It doesn’t invoke a deep, deep centuries-long history of oppression when you poke fun at say, white people. But it’s very, very different when you poke fun at people of color.”

DiAngelo made the race-baiting remarks to promote her new book, “Nice Racism: How Progressive White People Perpetuate Racial Harm.”
In the book, she takes aim at patronizing white liberals (such as herself, ironically) who hide their deep-seated racism by loudly virtue-signaling and posturing. Perhaps she drew inspiration for her book by looking in the mirror every day.
Earlier this year, DiAngelo was widely slammed after being featured in a corporate training class that urged Coca-Cola employees to “be less white.“

As it is, DiAngelo’s influence and star power appear to be waning based on the dismal early sales of her new book.
“Nice Racism,” which was released on June 29, sold a meager 3,500 copies in its first week of publication, according to The Washington Free Beacon.
In contrast, “White Fragility” became a No. 1 bestseller in May 2020 following George Floyd’s death in police custody and the ensuing protests and riots.
The book stayed on The New York Times bestseller list for a year, thanks to the racial division stoked by the Democrat Party and the corporate media.
DiAngelo is an affiliate professor at the University of Washington in Seattle. She first amplified critical race theory on the speaker’s circuit while peddling “White Fragility.”
Like other left-wing grifters, DiAngelo has stoked and weaponized white guilt and black resentment to rake in mountains of cash by creating “diversity” courses integrated into school curriculums and government training programs.
The barrage of one-star Amazon reviews of her latest book summarizes how most independent-minded Americans view her race-hustling drivel.
“A white grifter, peddling unproven attention seeking nonsense about race for her own personal financial gain,” one reviewer wrote. “It doesn’t get more oppressive or exploitative than that.”
Another remarked, “Creepy old people person Robin DiAngelo is back with an old grift in a new package and she’s as fetishistic about black hair as ever!
“Has there been anyone, white or black, who has capitalized so much on white guilt?”

A vast region is arguably in crisis, and not just because of brutal wildfires. Farmers, ranchers, indigenous people and others are all suffering — with no end in sight.
“We don’t need you to type at all because we know where you are. We know where you’ve been. We can more or less guess what you’re thinking about. … Is that over the line?” – Eric Schmidt, former chief executive officer of Google, 2016
When people are arrogant, they can’t help but brag about what they’re doing – no matter how evil it is.
That’s one of the many things I’ve learned about the “Speech Code Cartel,” as I have dubbed Google, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Apple, Amazon, et al. Sometimes, with all I’ve learned, I wish I were still living in the Matrix, oblivious to it all. Red pill or blue? Hmmm. Let me think. No, there’s no going back.
I could write a book on what I’ve learned about the cartel. It could be a bestseller. But, then again, maybe I’d be dismissed as a “conspiracy theorist,” just babbling about a threat that doesn’t exist. And who would sell it? Certainly not the biggest, most important store in the world.
Instead, I’ll be telling you about all I’ve learned in bits and pieces. I’ve you think I’m crazy, or if you think I’m exaggerating the most fundamental peril our nation is facing, you can just dismiss me. Close your eyes and enjoy life in the Matrix while you can.
Just look at what Eric Schmidt and Mark Zuckerberg say in their own words (as above) when they forget themselves. They are telling you what they are doing – turning you into a human commodity, robbing you of your most sacred secrets, stealing your digital DNA and monetizing you. That’s slavery by definition. And they have no intention of backing down, slowing down or turning back. Remember, they are now the biggest lobby in Washington. They have more information on the American people than the NSA does – unless they’ve shared it with the government or even some foreign governments. We honestly may never know.
Don’t think I’m giving up. It’s not in my nature. I will not be bought or sold. I will not watch passively as the power of the people and the Constitution is compromised by unaccountable, evil, spoiled-rotten billionaires.
They have already ruined my life in many ways. Perhaps I’ll sue them some day.
Thank God Donald Trump awakened to the evil power of Big Tech, especially after being banned as a sitting president by social media and deprived of his 2020 electoral victory, in part due to the cartel’s malevolence. Thank God a few good men and women in Congress also smell some rats and are working to deal with the obvious antitrust aspects of this cabal. And thank God that He is on the throne, because it may take an act by Him to restore all things as He intended.
When I awakened to the threat to free speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion and our right to free and fair elections posed by this cartel, it was because my own company, WND, the product of 25 years of blood, sweat and tears, was caught in the crossfire. It’s not that we were targeted because we were the biggest fish. It was because Donald Trump, and all he represented, was a threat to the cabal and their ultra-progressive friends in Washington. We were just collateral damage, roadkill – because we were perceived, as others in the alternative, independent media, as key enablers and facilitators of the 2016 Trump upset.
I’m convinced the Big Steal of 2020 was in part the revenge of Big Tech.
Think about it. Would Trump have won his first election without the collective voice of the alternative, independent media? It’s hard to imagine, isn’t it? That’s why the cabal began working overtime to make sure it wouldn’t happen again in 2020.
That’s why there’s a hit out on us, a contract. Despite the cartel orchestrating the Big Steal to install their puppet, Joe Biden, we in the alternative media are still targeted for extermination – Breitbart.com, DailyCaller.com, Alex Jones, all of us. We don’t all agree on everything. We have our differences – in ideas, standards, experiences. But none of us deserves to be silenced.
Maybe you don’t fully understand the Google-Facebook agenda. So, let me spell it out for you: It’s not Russia that we need to worry about insofar as our free elections in the future. It’s Google-Facebook – and their adoring friends in China.
Did you ever wonder why the Steal happened? Big Tech. Did you think Joe Biden engineered it? That’s a laugh. I predicted the attempt before the election – but I was sure Trump would dismantle the cartel lock, stock and barrel and prevent such a disaster.
It was the only thing he didn’t think of. And I couldn’t tell him face to face because of my five strokes, from which I’m finally recovering. Thank God!
Look, we’re at a critical fork in the road. If we turn left, all is lost for us and our posterity. This is not hyperbole. This is undeniably true. What you see on the network news, what you see happening in the streets of America, what you see in the chambers of Congress and what you see on the internet is all a manifestation of an all-out war being waged for the hearts, minds and souls of our countrymen.
WND is still on the front lines of this conflict – and we’re feeling the pain, the exhaustion, the sense of overwhelming anxiety and, yes, fear.
But we carry on. We fight back. We pray to God for the strength to get up every day to seek and tell the truth no matter the consequences – and hope many people hear it!
Remember: No nation on earth poses a graver danger to all that has made America great over the last 245 years than this cabal does. It must be exposed, contained and dismantled. There’s no other viable solution for maintaining our liberty.
As I have told you before, I could write a book about all I know, but it wouldn’t be published fast enough. So, I’ll be telling you more about what I have learned of this bone-chilling threat in the days and weeks to come. But I am very concerned as to whether we have enough time to subvert this fiendish plot.
As for WND, there are several options for you to consider in supporting our work and continued existence:
Support the WND News Center, the new tax-exempt nonprofit organization we founded to help carry the WND banner in our battle for survival against the “Speech Code Cartel” of Google, Facebook and others, which are purposely trying to destroy us and the entire independent, alternative media. Your tax-deductible support will help us immensely to weather this storm.
If you prefer to write tax-deductible checks for this purpose, you can make them out to the “WND News Center” and mail them to: WND News Center, 580 E Street – PO Box 100 – Hawthorne, NV 89415-0100. (Please include the complete address because of the rural location.)
Regarding the campaign we launched mid-June to raise $100,000 by the end of July so WND can continue to operate, we’re making real progress! As of today, we’ve raised $73,002. Thank you sincerely for that, all who donated. Now we have one week left to raise the remaining $26,998. Please help put us over the top!
If you don’t have any money to give, please surround us in your prayerful protection as we fight on.

“You have to change it because you didn’t choose it.” The defiant mantra that evolves over the course of Moroccan director Nabil Ayouch’s scrappy but heartfelt hip-hop street-musical “Casablanca Beats,” his third time in Cannes but first time in competition, could be a rallying cry for any youth activism group, anywhere in the world. But […]
Because, let’s face it, one pool is never enough.
Hurting someone because they hurt you doesn’t end the cycle. It perpetuates it. And it makes you look like the person you dislike.

For MSNBC’s Ali Velshi the sky might as well be falling, because on his Saturday he agreed with Pennsylvania Sen. Bob Casey that the country is at the point of no return on voting rights now that the Supreme Court has ruled that bans on ballot harvesting and out-of-precinct voting do not violate Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act.
Velshi blasted Justice Samuel Alito’s opinion, painting it as a dark day for democracy. ” You tweeted about this – Alito’s five-factor test. It should be emphasized that small ‘d’ democrats have nothing to celebrate after the decision in Brnovich. Alito’s opinion does weaken the Voting Rights Act, it endorses phantom fears about voter fraud, a phenomenon that barely exists.”
This verbiage comes from Ian Millhiser at Vox, not Casey.
According to Velshi, “What are we, we’re going down a weird road in America, where this phantom thing that started with the Big Lie that has extended into voter fraud is now becoming entrenched into law.”
Of course, Alito didn’t actually say fraud was rampant, just that the state has a legitimate interest in preventing it. Arizona’s law was so uncontroversial that despite what President Biden said after the decision, his own lawyers agreed that neither provision violated Section 2 of the VRA.
That might be news to Velshi and to Senator Casey, who hyperbolically declared, “we reached a point now with the Supreme Court decisions and with the — the advent of all of these — what is it more than 400 voter suppression bills across the country, where we’re at a point of no return. We’re either going to preserve our democracy and thereby protect voter rights or protect the voter rights to preserve the democracy, or we’re not.”
We’re hanging by a thread!
Casey wasn’t finished with outlandish remarks, claiming, “We’ve come to a point where Democrats have to stand up and get something done. Now, I think we can do that. Because it’s apparent to me that Republicans are just going to endorse the voter suppression bills. And at its core we should be blunt about this, at its core these voter suppression bills are about white supremacy.”
Velshi claimed this was obviously true, “It seems obvious what you just said.”
He then deplored the fact that some Democrats, presumably Sens. Manchin and Sinema, fail to see the urgency of the situation, “You have some people in the Senate who are members of your party who probably need a little convincing of that…Because a lot of Americans have come to the conclusion you come to, that is Republicans seem to be on the wrong side of this issue for the wrong reasons.”
If Velshi is genuinely concerned about the state of the VRA, he should be mad at the DNC for bringing a publicity stunt of a lawsuit it had no chance of winning.

Here is a transcript of the July 3 show:
9:30 AM ET
ALI VELSHI: Let me ask you about the — the Supreme Court decision — opinions that came out this we week. You tweeted about this – Alito’s five-factor test. It should be emphasized that small ‘d’ democrats have nothing to celebrate after the decision in Brnovich. Alito’s opinion does weaken the Voting Rights Act, it endorses phantom fears about voter fraud, a phenomenon that barely exists. What are we, we’re going down a weird road in America, where this phantom thing that started with the Big Lie that has extended into voter fraud is now becoming entrenched into law.
BOB CASEY: Ali, we’re — we reached a point now with the Supreme Court decisions and with the — the advent of all of these — what is it more than 400 voter suppression bills across the country, where we’re at a point of no return. We’re either going to preserve our democracy and thereby protect voter rights or protect the voter rights to preserve the democracy or we’re not. We’ve come to a point where Democrats have to stand up and get something done. Now, I think we can do that. Because it’s apparent to me that Republicans are just going to endorse the voter suppression bills. And at its core we should be blunt about this, at its core these voter suppression bills are about white supremacy and unfortunately it seems the Republican Party is becoming a one-or two-issue agenda party where they seem only interested in stopping Joe Biden’s programs and especially on the caregiving issues and supporting voter suppression bills.
VELSHI: It seems obvious what you just said. You have some people in the Senate who are members of your party who probably need a little convincing of that. Are you involved in any of those conversations with some colleagues who think that we really still need to continue to try and be as bipartisan as we can with respect to voting rights? Because a lot of Americans have come to the conclusion you come to, that is Republicans seem to be on the wrong side of this issue for the wrong reasons.
