At Last, Tuesday Motes

It’s nice there are some things you can always count on: Like Geraldo Rivera, born Gerald Riviera, insulting someone he “debates” with, especially when they are trying to make a point he doesn’t agree with.  Rivers named three Supreme Court Justice’s and called them frauds and claimed, “they lied”. When broadcaster Greg Guttfeld called him on it, he labels the facts “baloney”, calls Guttfeld “arrogant” and then calls him an “insulting punk”. As he always does, if Rivera can’t answer the facts, he attacks the person. Hey Gerry, two things you should drop from your bio. You are not a “Republican” and you sure ain’t a “journalist”.

The what? : US Attorney General Merrick Garland on Thursday unveiled a new “Office of Environmental Justice” to advance Joe Biden’s climate agenda. Garland’s announcement comes as Uncle Joe’s climate “advisor” Gina McCarthy recently bragged to her lunatic supporters at Tufts University about how the regime is going to force the airlines to follow their new green-style rules. McCarthy told supporters this week, “We’re actually going to do 100 rules this year alone on appliances… Sustainable airlines. Who’d a thunk that they’d be all in but they better be or they’re gonna be out of here.” What the hell is “environmental justice”? Sounds more like the department of “egocentric environmental extortion”. And this is from the “department of justice”? Not seeing any.

Question: Is Johnny Depp and Amber Heard calling each other obscene names and crying on demand more important than the “2000 Mules”? Guess so.

Merc’s in Africa, again: Forces identified by witnesses as Russian have “summarily executed, tortured, and beaten civilians” in the Central African Republic (CAR) since 2019. The report — which is based on interviews with 40 people, including 10 victims of violence and 15 witnesses — details abuses that were allegedly committed by men “with white skin speaking Russian” who wore “beige khaki clothes” and used military-grade weapons. The fingers are pointing at the Wagner Group,” which is a private military security contractor with ties to the Russian government”. The group is thought to be connected to — and financed by — Yevgeny Prigozhin, an oligarch so close to the Kremlin that he is known as Russian President Vladimir Putin’s “chef.” The Kremlin has repeatedly denied any links to the group. Prigozhin also denies any connection to Wagner. Mercenary’s (merc’s) in Africa have been bad news since the 60’s. The Simba’s, Mau Mau, Mad Mike Hoare , Bob Denard and Jean Schramme were known world wide back then. The other night TMC showed one of the more controversial movies of that time. “Dark of The Sun” also known as the “Last Train From Katanga” stared Rod Taylor, Yvette Mimieux, and Jim Brown. The U.N. has very strict rules about mercenary involvement in conflicts, but I guess the new designation is “military contractor” and a way around the rules.

She’s earned out best: Let’s give a big “hooray” for 18-year-old Georgia resident Bryn Hammock, who refined her sewing skills during the pandemic, spearheaded an effort to produce 140 weighted gloves, which she calls “Tiny Hugs,” to comfort infants in the newborn intensive care units (NICU) at her local hospitals. It all began when Hammock learned that parents could only spend two hours daily with their newborns in NICUs under pandemic restrictions. She then heard of bead-filled gloves meant to comfort newborns from her grandmother, Deanna Simmons, who happens to be a pediatric nurse. Hammock created her first batch of “Tiny Hugs” and, with the help of her mother, Kelley Hammock, produced an instruction video on how to make them while also fashioning a team of 18 volunteers. The group set out to make 30 “Tiny Hugs,” but when all was said and done, they manufactured 140. Hammock, a girl scout, also had her eyes set on the Gold Award, the highest honor the Girl Scouts of America has for ambassadors and senior girl scouts. As far as I’m concerned, she earned it. Way to go.

Yes, times are tough: You know times are bad when a semi-celeb’s mom launches a go-fund-me to pay for the daughters civil court loss against another semi-celeb. WTF is this world coming to?

Sad news: Leave It to Beaver actor Tony Dow announced Thursday that he has been diagnosed with cancer.The L.A. native, 77, and his wife of 41 years, Lauren, said they were heartbroken over the diagnosis, and were thankful of prayers from fans, in advance. Dow played the role of Wally Cleaver on Leave It to Beaver in all 234 episodes of the show from 1957 to 1963 alongside Jerry Mathers, and late stars Hugh Beaumont, Barbara Billingsley and Ken Osmond. “Beaver” was one of the most timeless shows ever produced. My prayers and thoughts are with him.

You know that gift box Brother Danno sent me? Well, it had more than chocolate and coffee. Getting into it I found this little gem. It’s sharp. compact and very classy. I got some of the best Bro’s there are. Thanks Danno.
