New Orleans' Last Brewery Removes 114-year-old 'Dixie Beer' Name From its Famous Tower

 Via Marc


    The Dixie Brewing Company, creators of Dixie Beer, a 107-year-old New Orleans lager, is rebranding itself by dropping the word 'Dixie' from its name

As Mother would say, what does this have to do with the price of eggs in China?

The 114-year-old Dixie Beer logo on the brewery tower in New Orleans was painted over on Wednesday as the new Faubourg label is set to hit store shelves after the famous lager was rebranded in the wake of the George Floyd killing.

Faubourg Beer will be available for purchase in the coming weeks after the company that brewed it decided to rebrand its entire operation and drop the ‘Dixie’ name in response to the protests following the killing of George Floyd.

 US admits F-35 failed to replace F-16 as planned, needs new fighter jet

Via 4Branch "This is why I argue for dual sourcing.   OK so Boeing lost the JSF competition, Lockheed has to give them the plans and in the first three years procurement gets split 60/40 between the two plants.  Lockheed gets 60 as a reward for winning the competition.   At the end of three years, whoever delivers planes with less unit-cost gets 60% of the next contract.   At the end of that contract, we re-evaluate again before awarding a weighted contract for the next batch....This damn boondoggle has been in development since Bubba and his lovely wife Bruno were in the White House in the mid-90s.  It should have been in service in numbers 10 years ago.   But here we are and only Lockheed is slowly pumping them out...During World War 2 Vought's Corsair was also built by Brewster and Goodyear.    GM build Grumman's Wildcat and Avenger.  Bell built their own P-39 series as well as Curtiss' P-40.    Ford built Consolidated's B-24.   Let's get some of that going so we no longer have only a single source who can cry for more money."

The U.S. Senate parliamentarian ruled Thursday evening that President Joe Biden and congressional Democrats cannot procedurally include a minimum wage hike in their $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package, a setback for the Democrats and the new president.

The ruling by the parliamentarian is a major setback for Democrats who had hoped to include a hike to a $15 federal minimum wage in the bill.

NC: Ask Senators Burr & Tillis to Reject the "Equality Act"

 Via Jonathan

In just days, the Congress of the United States will vote on the Equality Act, which poses one of the most severe threats to our First Amendment freedoms of speech, association, and religion to ever be considered in Washington.

It is urgent that you make it absolutely clear to your members of Congress that not only is this not “equality,” but it’s downright dangerous. Our nation was founded upon the bedrock principal that all of us are created equal. However, the Equality Act is a cheap counterfeit of our fundamental rights, and every lawmaker needs to know that you adamantly oppose this bill which will wreak havoc on our society and result in a complete cultural revolution.

Amazon Prime Stops Streaming Clarence Thomas Documentary During Black History Month

 Mark Wilson/Getty Images

Thomas Sowell and the late Walter Williams – two accomplished and well-regarded black conservative economists – have written for decades about how liberal social policies beginning with Great Society programs in the 1960s and continuing today have failed miserably.  Can there be any doubt of failure for policies that have contributed to the black out-of-wedlock birthrate going from 11 percent in 1938 to more than 75 percent today? That 82 percent of black households were two-parent in 1950 and today more than 70 percent of black households are headed by a single mother?  But to question these policies is racist?

Amazon showed it has its limits when it comes to its dedication to diversity and inclusion when it failed to continue streaming a critically acclaimed and popular documentary on the only black Supreme Court justice during Black History Month.

Recently, Amazon Prime dropped Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words, an acclaimed and popular PBS documentary on Justice Clarence Thomas, making it unavailable to stream during Black History Month.  Thomas is our nation’s only black justice currently serving on the U.S. Supreme Court, and one would think that between Amazon’s claim to “building an inclusive culture” and the fact that it’s Black History Month, Amazon would want to stream this inspiring documentary on its platform.

Trump Unveils Plan for Super PAC with Corey Lewandowski in the Lead & Mitch McConnell ‘Absolutely’ Would Support Trump if GOP Nominee in 2024

 Trump Unveils Plan for Super PAC with Corey Lewandowski in the Lead, Report

As former President Donald Trump prepares for his Sunday address at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Florida, he is also laying the groundwork for his new political activities, according to a published report.

Trump told his advisers Thursday that he has chosen Corey Lewandowski, who served as his campaign manager in 2015 and early 2016, to lead a super PAC he is forming, according to Politico, which cited as its source “multiple people familiar with the discussion.”

“We gained seats in the House. We elected 50 Republican senators when everybody was predicting we were going to lose the Senate. The Democrats didn’t flip a single state legislature. We flipped two [and] picked up a governor.“ The Republican Party had a very good day on November 3,” McConnell continued. “We’re sorry we lost the White House, but the Republican Party demonstrated once again [that] this is a 50/50 nation, we are very competitive and will be competitive again in ’22.”

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Thursday he would “absolutely” support Donald Trump if the former president won the Republican nomination in 2024.

However, McConnell told “Special Report” host Bret Baier that “there’s a lot to happen between now and ’24. I’ve got at least four members, I think, that are planning on running for president, plus governors and others. There is no incumbent, [so it] should be a wide-open race and fun for you all to cover.”

IGNORED BY MEDIA AND FBI: Antifa-BLM Activists Are Posting Photos and Bragging Online About Storming US Capitol on Jan. 6

 Via Billy

Earlier this week we asked the question:
“Can We Reform a FBI that Behaves Like a Gestapo?”

It is a legitimate question to raise because there are still some patriots serving within the ranks of the FBI who are beyond distraught over the gross politicization of their once proud, respected organization. Some of the men and women with 20 years in are simply counting days and hours until they can punch out. There is genuine, deep seated hatred for Christopher Wray and his coterie of lackeys eager to suckle on the teat of the Deep State.

The final straw for many in the bureau is the dishonest response to the January 6 swarm at the U.S. Capitol. For starters, the FBI had intelligence about Antifa’s plans to infiltrate the crowds of Trump supporters and incite violence. But the FBI also was manipulating some of the very groups labeled as “white supremacists”, e.g. the Proud Boys.
