    And the actual Leader of the Free World is now being targeted by the Biden Administration: Biden DOJ targeting of Elon Musk is intimidation, pure and simple

    In a string of remarkable coincidences, President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice has taken a keen interest in all things Elon Musk.

    The US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York is reportedly pursuing criminal charges against Musk, scrutinizing whether the Tesla CEO failed to disclose personal benefits he received from his car company.

    The Wall Street Journal reports that the new inquiry centers around Tesla’s “Project 42,” an alleged plan for a weird glass home and structure that Musk talked about constructing in Texas but never built.

    Which all sounds very much like a fishing expedition put on by a lawless, out-of-control, politically driven DOJ.

    Robert, between your response re antonyms and my reply on "soft language," I couldn't help but remember George's comedic wisdom on these subjects!

    The 'advanced search' function of Twitter is very useful if you want to find out how certain people behaved during a certain time period.

    The Australian Prime Minister has promised a 'review' into the Government's covid response, by a panel of 3 'independent experts. This is one of those reviewers.

    I'm not even angry, it's quite amusing.

    Re diversity hires, we have a system here they call 'special measures' - if two people are equally qualified for a job and satisfy all 'essential selection criteria', but one of the applicants is Aboriginal, they must be offered the job. In practice, because experience and quality of work history is often subjective, if the recruitment panel believe the non-Aboriginal applicant is better suited to the job, they will find a way to explain to HR that the Aboriginal person does not (quite) meet one of the selection criterion.

    In contrast: New Records: Biden DHS Has Approved Hundreds of Thousands of Migrants for Secretive Foreign Flights Directly into U.S. Airports

    A little-known part of the Biden administration's CBP One parole program permits inadmissible aliens to make an appointment to fly directly to airports in the interior of the United States, bypassing the border altogether. Partial data on the program, just obtained by the Center for immigration Studies pursuant to a Freedom of Information Act request, reveals that more than 200,000 people from four countries have used this direct-flight and parole program over the past year.

    In January, President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security began implementing the cornerstone of its current Southwest Border management strategy: a series of new “lawful pathways” measures designed to decrease the historically high monthly “encounter” statistics of illegally crossing immigrants and to thin their mass congregations before they become a political problem.

    For one of the more publicized measures, DHS cajoles tens of thousands of intending illegal border-crossers per month to instead go on the CBP One smartphone application, and make an appointment with U.S. officials at land ports of entry instead of crossing illegally. After making an appointment, DHS invites these inadmissible aliens to walk over to the American side at the land ports, where U.S. Customs officials quickly “parole” them in, allowing them to travel to a city of their choice in the nation’s interior.

    But one of the least noticed, mysterious, and potentially the most controversial of the new rechanneling programs that use the CBP One app allows migrants to take commercial passenger flights from foreign countries straight to their American cities of choice, flying right over the border — and even over Mexico. For this measure, Cubans, Venezuelans, Nicaraguans, Haitians, and Colombians — while they are still in countries south of Mexico — request “advance travel authorizations” through the same CBP One mobile app and take commercial flights (“at their own expense”) directly into U.S. airports, where U.S. Customs officers parole them into the nation, sight unseen, and in numbers publicly unknown.
    Biden DHS Clears Path For Hundreds Of Thousands Of Migrants To Stay In The US, Get Work Permits

    The Biden administration granted protections to hundreds of thousands of Venezuelans amid a surge in illegal immigration at the southern border and stresses on cities across the country, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced late Wednesday.

    The program will allow 242,700 an existing temporary protection designation in addition to roughly 472,000 Venezuelans expected to qualify for the new designation to receive work permits and stay in the U.S. without fear of removal, DHS said. Venezuelans qualifying for the program must have arrived before July 31.
    Why? What the fuck are these people doing to us, and why???

    This will only get much worse with EVs becoming more prevalent.
    This would be my assessment as well. Though I would guess that most people these days (myself included) wouldn't even want to maintain their car. So I guess the complexity fulfills a market demand.

    Notice the Tesla clientele. Do you think they have a GTO in the garage?

    AFRICANS SPILLING INTO MEXICO LIKE WORLD WAR Z ###

    These Africans didn't pay for their ticket across the Atlantic, I can assure you that.

    The people doing this are doing it because they hate European homogony with the same passion they insist Europeans hate everyone else. There are secondary and tertiary reasons, of course, but that is the main one.

    Two state representatives are urging Gov. Greg Abbott to call an immediate special session to address the invasion on the southern border.

    State Reps. Brian Harrison (R–Midlothian) and Matt Schaefer (R–Tyler) sent out a joint statement asking Abbott to use “every state and federal constitutional authority he has to stop the invasion and deport illegal migrants.”
