Georgia's Republican Governor Tells Atlanta Braves' Owner, John Malone, to Move His Team to Puerto Rico Over MLB's Flip of All Star Game to Colorado

Georgia, a red state, recently betook itself to passing legislation explicity designed to make it nearly impossible for Black people to vote, after Stacey Abrams and the Democratic National Committee, on January 5, elected its first Black U S Senator and its first Jewish Senator, both Democrats. That made New York’s Chuck Schumer the Senate Majority Leader, deposing his longtime rival, Kentucky’s Mitch McConnell, to Minority Leader.
Didn’t take long after the Republican-controlled legislature in Georgia to pass legislation, raucously signed by its Republican governor, Brian Kemp, for Major League Baseball to move its bigtime moneymaker, the All Star Game, previously scheduled for Atlanta, to Denver.
Delta Airlines, based in Atlanta, strongly criticized the Georgia GOP, which is beholden to Donald Trump. Ditto Coca Cola.
Kemp faces re-election next year, so, to save his own butt, he needs to continue his public adoration of Trump.
Yesterday, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer interviewed Colorado’s jubilant Governor, Democrat Jared Polis, who proudly announced that situating the All Star Game in Colorado will result in millions of dollars being spent in Colorado by baseball fans, who are likely to extend their stay in the Centennial State to enjoy Colorado’s priceless scenery (Georgia has a tourist attraction called Stone Mountain Park, which is far, far inferior to Colorado’s Rocky Mountain National Park).
Our DC-based associate solitary reporter, Keith Coleman, stormed into Kemp’s office at the very moment that Kemp was yelling on his cell phone at John Malone, the billionaire owner of Liberty Media, parent company of. the Atlanta Braves baseball team (three-time World Series champion).
Coleman immediately heard governor Kemp saying, “John, your p____-a__ team is part of Major League Baseball, and as an owner, you’re part of all that, so you need to tell MLB’s Rob Manfred that the stupdest thing he ever did was to move his All Star Game out of Atlanta, where I am in charge of everything in this peachy white cream state, to the Mile High City, where Democrats control just about everything.”
“So John, I’m cutting straight to the chase. Georgia doesn’t want to have anything to to with your p_____a__ team. Starting tomorrow, pack your bags for San Juan. In Puerto Rico, just see how much money you can make in a territory where they don’t even speak English.”
Our Denver-based associate solitary reporter, Lewis Thompson III, smiled as he read what Colorado Politics’ Joey Bunch (the funniest political reporter in Colorado) said about the All Star game moving to Colorado: “Denver’s good luck was Georgia’s bad, a product of the balls and strikes of politics: the Big Lie, fake news, woke corporations and election integrity.”

Colorado Republican Group Says Marxist Democrats Are Exploiting the Boulder Shooting

As Colorado Politics’ Marianne Goodland concisely said yesterday, a venomous group called the Republican Liberty Caucus of Colorado, a pro-gun advocacy group, now claims that Marxists and other “collectivists” (such as Democrats advocating for sensible gun control) are pushing an anti-gun agenda.

 

The RLCC follows the typical Republican playbook: smear, lie, smear, lie. In the past, it has been led by Sue Moore of Englewood; Moore is a former chair of the Denver Republican Party. 

 

All this, of course, following the massacre at a King Soopers grocery store in Boulder, on Monday (see also the Times’ "Boulder’s Pain Is Deepened by a Lost Fight for Gun Control,"

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/24/us/boulder-shooting-gun-control.html?referringSource=articleShare).

 

And in the Senate, the Centennial State’s Senior Senator, Democrat Michael Bennet, a former 2020 presidential candidate, made a passionate speech on the floor of Senate Majoriaty Leader Chuck Schumer’s Senate, demanding that Mitch McConnell’s Conference man up and support meangingful gun control legislation. 

 

Associate solitary reporter Emily McCarthy, one of the many very articulate and persuasive advocates with Ceasefire Colorado, a gun control group, is, by nature, a pessimist, which is why she expects that McConnell won’t allow any man or woman in his Conference to support meaningful gun control measures already passed in the House.

 

Our Denver-based associate solitary reporter, Lewis Thompson III, spoke, moments ago, with the Secretary of the Republican Liberty Caucus of Colorado, a woman with the improbable name of Jecca Geffre.

 

As usual, Thompson cut straight to the chase.

 

“Jecca, a heckova weird name you got there -- are you going to run against my Colorado political hero, Governor Jared Polis, in 2022?"

 

“Of course! We’re the Conscience of the Republican Party. Now get the hell out of here before I grab my AR-15."

Trump's Lawyer Sidney Powell Is Surely Headed for Disbarment, But the GOP May Run Her for Colorado Secretary of State

The Trumpless GOP left a Trumplegacy of falsehoods.

 

As in, when your client lies all the time, as Donald Trump did several times a day, then, if you are an attorney representing Trump, you ape your client.

 

Enter loudmouth prevaricator Sidney Powell, one of Trump’s lawyers. She’s been sued for defamation by Denver-based Dominion Voting Systems for her baseless claims that Dominion rigged the election in Joe Biden’s favor. Totally false.

 

Powell’s also under attack in federal court in Michigan, where lawyers are asking a federal judge to disbar her; and her lawyers in those two cases are openly contradicting each other (https://www.cnn.com/2021/03/24/politics/sidney-powell-bar-dominion/index.html).

 

Your solitary reporter did a funder for Colorado’s outstanding Secretary of State, 35-year old Jena Griswold, in 2018.

 

There is buzz in Republican circles that the GOP may run

Sidney Powell — who has roots in the Centennial State — against Griswold next year.

 

Which is why all loyal Democrats should promptly chip in to Griswold’s re-election campaign: jenaforcolorado.com.

Why Big Pharma Won't Help Third World Countries; LaPierre Gloats (Once Again, That's His Job)

Wealthy nations, including these here United States, are, for the most part, way ahead of poor countries in acquiring desperately needed stockpiles of The Vaccines to develop herd immunity to Cover-19.

 

Jenn White, the host of stellar radio program 1A at WAMU at American University in Washington, had an excellent show this morning on this universally important subject, because poor nations won’t be able to stockpile enough vaccines for their countries until next year.

 

And until everybody in the world is fully vaccinated, nobody’s really safe.

 

The consensus of White's panelists was (we are paraphrasing here) that Big Pharma insists that it has a fiduciary duty to its stockholders to make money — and, of course, there is always lotsa money to be made in pharmaceuticals.

 

So we sent our DC-based Chief Democratic Political Operative, Keith Coleman, to the impressive Constiution Avenue NW headquarters of the American Pharmacists Association (APhA) to talk things over with their President, Michael Hough.

 

Hough got straight to the point. “Keith,” he said, “it’s all about the bottom line. While our members make thousands of medications (including prescriptions to improve the appearance of peoples’ bottoms), it’s all about the money, and that’s why we’re not willing to waive our intellectual property rights, our patents, for any and all Covid-19 vaccines.”

 

When Coleman told Hough that he has a direct line to President Biden, Hough cut him short. “That would be a waste of your time, Keith. We’re way too powerful, and Biden knows that we would primary him in 2024 if he were to lobby Congress to make us waive our rights.”

 

In other news, Wayne LaPierre, the NRA’s chief gunslinger, told our Denver-based associate solitary reporter, Lewis Thompson III, how proud he is to have single-handedly convinced a judge in Boulder to toss out Boulder’s ban on assault weapons, following the most recent Slaughter of Innocents at a King Soopers grocery store in Boulder. That judicial decision, based on the Centennial State’s unwieldy Constitution, was made before the 21-year old shooter committed his massacre on Monday.

Why, In the Age of COVID, Women Don't Have to Wear Bras If They Don't Feel Like It

Our rapidly growing and steadfast corps of associate solitary reporters includes famed Denver-area computer genius, and associate solitary reporter, Anthony Kennedy.
Kennedy is the oldest son of former Suprene Court Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy. He has two Ph.Ds, first in Electrical Engineering, from the University of Notre Dame, and also in Computer Science from Steve Jobs University. He is called on far and wide to assist people who don’t know the first thing about computers. His friends universally acknowledge him as the kindest, and most patient, computer adviser they have ever known. Kennedy far surpasses Tim Cook’s thousands of senior advisers on AppleCare. Kennedy is also a 1995 graduate of the Iliff School of Theology in Denver, with a degree in Advanced Pastoral Care, even though he is a lapsed Catholic because of his many years at the University of Notre Dame.
A mere youngster at the age of 60, Kennedy is the co-author, with the Times’ Courtney Rubin, of ‘Women Don’t Want to Be Harnessed Anymore’
There, Rubin and Kennedy explain in detail the complexities of women’s bras in the Age of Covid: how women working from home are much happier wearing no bra at all with the limited exception of occasional Zoom calls.
Before meeting Rubin, Kennedy authored A Short History of the Bra, an Apocryphal Press best-seller.
Kennedy is socially fearless, which is why, early today, he teleported himself from his Denver-area home to Donald Trump’s superpricey resort, Mar-a-Lago, where he interviewed Melania Trump, who never grants interviews. Trump and Kennedy were alone in Melania’s bedroom for four hours. No one from the Secret Service was anywhere near. 
Mrs. Trump, the former Melania Knavs, is a native of Novo Mesto, Slovenia, which was then part of partially Communist Yugoslavia under Marshal Josip Broz Tito. She’s 50 and Donald Trump is 74.
During their very lenghty visit, Melania said, “Tony, my friend, the only reason I ever wore a bra was because Donald told me I had to, but since he incited The Insurrection at the Capitol on January 6, I’ve never worn a bra and never will again.”
Kennedy thanked her for this exclusive interview and teleported himself back to his Denver-area home, where he continues his volunteer work in helping hapless MacIntosh users figure out everything that needs to be figured out on Apple Computers.
