Biden Makes Baseball’s Opening Day Political, Calls on MLB to Cancel Atlanta All-Star Game

Stop. Mixing. Politics. And. Sports.

For those of you who are not fans of our national pastime, first, I pity you. This is the other beautiful game and I hope that one day you can enjoy the game the way that many of us do.

But, secondly, today is a special day for those of us entranced by baseball. This is Opening Day. The big show is getting started.

And while there certainly is reason or celebration, especially as fans were forced to settle for a truncated 2020 season with little to no live attendance, there is also a controversy rounding the bases, ready to collide at home plate in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia.

You see, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp has recently signed a very unpopular law into being that the left, (and some in the middle), say is designed to restrict voting in liberal-leaning parts of the state. This has led to a number large corporations receiving calls to boycott the entire state of Georgia, including an instance in which the MLB was allegedly considering moving the All Star Game out of the Peach State on account of it.

President Joe Biden weighed in on the possibility this week during an appearance on ESPN.

From Breitbart:

Host Sage Steele asked, “Mr. President, what do you think about the possibility that baseball decides to move their All-Star Game out of Atlanta because of this political issue?”

Biden responded, “I think today’s professional athletes are acting incredibly responsibly. I would strongly support them doing that. People look to them. They’re leaders. Look at what’s happened with the NBA as well. Look at what’s happened across the board. The very people who are victimized the most are the people who are the leaders in these various sports. And it’s just not right.”

The quip comes as CEO’s from both Delta Airlines and Coca-Cola, (two of Georgia’s most powerful corporations), have loudly condemned the legislation.

Biden to Let More than 1.2 Million Illegals Into the Country This Year

According to a recent analysis, Biden’s disastrous border policy will have sent 1.2 million illegals to the U.S. border in this year alone.

According to a recent analysis, Biden’s disastrous border policy will have sent 1.2 million illegals to the U.S. border in this year alone. Princeton Policy Advisor Steven Kopits says that the numbers at the border will surge to the huge number this year according to his estimate. This massive flood of illegals is a result of Joe Biden’s dangerous border policy. The Kopits analysis comes in conjunction with a report by U.S. immigration officials of the arrest of roughly 170,000 illegal border crossers. More than 18,600 unaccompanied children, 53,000 family units, and 97,000 single adults are included in the numbers. “At the current pace, apprehensions for calendar year 2021 could be forecast at 1.2 million, following the precedents of 2005 and 2006,” Kopits stated. As a result, barring a major modification of Biden administration policy, we might expect a level of illegal immigration this year not seen since the Great Recession. The situation is fairly described as a border crisis and a rolling policy disaster. [Emphasis added] As Breitbart News reported: An AP-NORC poll released late last month revealed that the majority of Americans disapprove of the way Biden is handling the southern border and interior immigration enforcement. About 55 percent of American adults said they disapprove of Biden’s border agenda. and 56 percent said they disapprove of his immigration agenda thus far. Joe Biden fully intends to destroy this country by flooding the U.S. with criminal illegals filled with diseases and completely without skills in order to become good little Democrat voters who will continue to put Democrats in office to keep the flow of welfare coming.

PLAYING GOD: Human-Animal Hybrid Embryos Created in California Lab

The ethical concerns here are rather obvious.

It may seem like the plot from some sci-fi thriller, but we assure you, it is very, very real. Science, like most other fields of study, has long required its practitioners to push the envelope.  That is the nature of the beast when it comes to innovation, but we must also temper that need for progress with some logic and rationale. Much like Jeff Goldblum’s character laments in the film Jurassic Park, just because you can do something, doesn’t mean that you should. That is why the latest news out of California is so jarring. For the first time, scientists have created embryos that are a mix of human and monkey cells. The embryos, described Thursday in the journal Cell, were created in part to try to find new ways to produce organs for people who need transplants, said the international team of scientists who collaborated in the work. But the research raises a variety of concerns. “My first question is: Why?” said Kirstin Matthews, a fellow for science and technology at Rice University’s Baker Institute. “I think the public is going to be concerned, and I am as well, that we’re just kind of pushing forward with science without having a proper conversation about what we should or should not do.” Scientists are defending the controversial decision, however, and doing so sternly. “This is one of the major problems in medicine — organ transplantation,” said Juan Carlos Izpisua Belmonte, a professor in the Gene Expression Laboratory of the Salk Institute for Biological Sciences in La Jolla, Calif., and a co-author of the Cell study. “The demand for that is much higher than the supply.” “I don’t see this type of research being ethically problematic,” said Insoo Hyun, a bioethicist at Case Western Reserve University and Harvard University. “It’s aimed at lofty humanitarian…
