Mixed messages and cleanups

Thursday saw the ever-confused president of the United States totally confused when asked a question about whether he's considering a delay on rescinding the Trump-era Title 42 mandate. Joe seemed to think the question related to the federal government's mask mandate for public transit. All of which prompted the White House to issue a statement to clarify his position. The mask mandate for planes and public transit, was struck down this past week by a federal judge in Florida. Biden's department of "justice" punted it to the CDC, so that the Biden regime wouldn't be taking any more heat for an unpopular mask mandate. The CDC, as we all know, has notoriously acted in behalf of the administration and the Teacher's union.
When Biden was asked by a reporter if he was considering a delay on rescinding the Trump-era Title 42 covid mandate, he responded this way:
"No, what I'm considering is continuing to hear from my – first of all, there's going to be an appeal by the Justice Department," Biden said after remarks he gave in the White House on the war in Ukraine. Because as a matter of principle, we want to be able to be in a position where if, in fact, it is strongly concluded by the scientists that we need Title 42 that we be able to do that. But there has been no decision on extending Title 42."
As happens on almost a daily basis, his handlers had to clean it up:
"I want to clarify that, in comments at the conclusion of my remarks this morning, I was referring to the CDC’s mask mandate and there is no Department of Justice action on Title 42.” Supposedly issued by Joe Biden
A Hostile Tender Offer:
Hostile Tender Offer: Definition
In a hostile takeover , an offer to buy the target company's stock from shareholders . A hostile tender offer occurs when the target company's board of directors has recommended that shareholders not sell , and it will usually try to make a better offer than the hostile tender offer to buy out shareholders and avoid being taken over. The success of a hostile tender offer depends on how high it is compared to what the board of directors is willing to offer.
Elon Musk just announced in a new securities filing that he had secured the $43 billion he would need to acquire Twitter for $54.20 per share, and that he is weighing a tender offer to acquire the company for that price. This one goes around the board and right to the stockholders. It now seems that Musk will succeed and the people who use Twitter will be well served, as will be the 1st Amendment.
A whole new world:
"On Thursday, the Florida legislature passed a bill seeking to dissolve a special district that allows the Walt Disney Company to act as its own government within the outer limits of Orange and Osceola counties. If Gov. Ron DeSantis signs the bill into law, the Reedy Creek special district would be dissolved effective June 1, 2023."
Disney stock is now in a free fall.
CNN pulls the plug: After only 3 years and a massive investment CNN ended it's streaming service called CNN Plus. It was a crazy idea considering that CNN was the lowest rated cable news network. CNN Plus basically featured the same leftist anchors that the failing flagship station provided. Oh ya, Chris Wallace was to be included. Sorry Chris, call it karma for the way you kept interrupting the President of the United States during the 2020 presidential debates.
Yahoo explains the siege of Mariupol:
"After reducing Ukraine’s eastern port city of Mariupol to rubble , President Vladimir Putin on Thursday called the military campaign there a success, something he desperately needs as the war grinds into its third month.
It's anything but.
Russia stopped short of routing hundreds of Ukrainian fighters from the strategic city’s giant steel plant . Ukraine and President Joe Biden rejected Putin’s claim of victory."
Hannity: Oh yes, Sean Hannity became the longest running prime time cable news host in the history of television.
What have we learned?
If we didn't know then, we definitely know now that Barack Obama was right when he said "Don't underestimate Joe's ability to fuck things up."
We also saw the determination of those who control this proxy puppet of a president to fill the country with illegal migrants and double down on the war against fossil fuels. Even moderate democrats are starting to defect. As for the front man in the White House, he stubbornly has decided that he is not only fit to be president, but he intends to run in 2024. He told his mentor Barack Obama just that. That conversation was leaked. I'm not sure if it was a concerned Obama or a determined Biden who did the leaking. BTW, Obama was out giving lectures again this past week. Now he wants to change our perspective, That's going to be hard to do after a year of radical policies that hurt so many Americans.
The most laughable thing was the leftist excuse maker "PolitiFact" and others trying to pretend that Biden's extended hand to nobody was a pointing gesture (with a full open hand) or a handshake offer to someone "out there" near the stage!
