Joe Biden takes a page from the playbook of the world's tinpot dictators "If you want a sense of why COVID with its mask and lockdown requirements is so very, very, important to the Biden administration, take a look at some of its curiously repressive actions in just this past week:
A well known veterans' POW/MIA group called AMVETS was denied a parking permit from the wokester Pentagon for its 34th annual Memorial Day motorcycle rally called "Rolling to Remember," on COVID concerns — after a delaying any response at all to the group for nearly a year. The parking denial left the group, which has leased the Pentagon parking space for decades, less than 30 days to secure another one somewhere else. They'd obtained the complicated permits for other parts of the event from six other local, state, and federal government agencies, so too bad about that.
The state of South Dakota was denied a fireworks permit in the vicinity of Mount Rushmore for Independence Day, once again on COVID concerns. That follows a failed promise from the Biden administration to "circle back" on an already-established Memorandum of Agreement about how to do the event COVID-safely, and then not doing it. After that, they issued the flat-out rejection, because COVID. South Dakota's governor, Kristi Noem, is suing.
"What do these two denials of permits have in common?" . . .
Alan Dershowitz Claims Giuliani Raid Was Political Revenge, Likens U.S. to ‘Banana Republic’ . . . “ 'In banana republics, in Castro‘s Cuba, in many parts of the world when a candidate loses for president, they go after the candidate, they go after his lawyers, they go after his friends,” Dershowitz said. “That’s happening in America now. They’re going after Rudy Giuliani.”
"Dershowitz, who served on President Trump’s impeachment defense team, claimed that a subpoena would have been more appropriate than a search warrant for Giuliani’s apartment. The attorney said he agreed to help represent Giuliani in his case.
“ 'A search warrant on a lawyer or a doctor or a priest? You don’t use search warrants,” Dershowitz said. “You don’t use search warrants when people have privileged information on their cell phones and in their computers. You use a subpoena. The difference between a subpoena and a search warrant is like night and day….It’s just not constitutional.' ”
