Media Gets “Build The Wall” Novelty Toy All Wrong

The mainstream media can’t seem to wrap their heads around a very simple concept here.

One of the wildest stories to find its way into the mainstream media this week was that of a novelty brick-building toy being sold online.

The somewhat silly and hilarious toy depicts a Lego-like Donald Trump and a “build your own wall” set of bricks behind him.

Of course, the liberal left was up in arms.

Much of ire surrounding the toy came under the impression that it was being marketed toward children specifically, which, according to Keep and Bear CEO Brandon Vallorani, just isn’t the case.

While the product description says it’s great for children, Vallorani says, “We believe that the vast majority of our customers will want it as a collectible.”

He says he’s not against children playing with toys that promote a political message. “The majority of our customers are over the age of 40, not children. But even so, politics are already being pushed on our kids every day in public school classrooms and through much of mainstream media,” he argues. “I believe all American citizens have the right to teach their children to examine political conversation and make their own decisions.”

Furthermore, Vallorani made it clear that he was in no way opposed to immigration, having been descended from immigrants himself.

For those offended by this toy, he wants to clear the air. “Some people who disagree with our political stance are claiming that we are against immigrants/immigration.” But Vallorani insists, “Nothing could be further from the truth.”

And for those who still believe that the toy is in bad taste…

“So far the response has been overwhelmingly positive,” he tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “Most people understand it’s just a novelty item.” He says the toy is “not at all” meant to be taken seriously. “Toys aren’t meant to be serious. Life is already stressful enough for people of all ages. This gift was meant to bring some lighthearted comic relief to the intense political debate,” he clarifies. “These toys are really just cool collectibles.”

Harrowing Tale of Week-Long Bear Attack is a Hoax, Say Investigators

Well this is embarrassing.

It was only a few days ago that the world became familiar with a truly stupendous tale out of America’s last frontier. A man, stranded at a remote cabin in the Alaskan bush, was being haunted and hunted every night by a vicious bear, after being mauled ever so slightly on his first day on site.  His rescuers arrived after a week of these nightly attacks, and only after the stranded man was able to create a plea for help large enough to be seen by the air. The only issue with the story is that the whole thing appears to be made up, at least according to local researchers.  While the story went viral worldwide and more details came to light about the incident, some community members began to express concerns and doubt about the veracity of the tale. The cabin [Richard] Jessee took refuge in, as it turns out, was not his. It belonged to a fellow miner, though Jessee’s cabin sat only a few yards away. “We went out there to the cabin, but we couldn’t find a bear track within 500 feet of the place, but it should have been all torn up, according to his story,” said one anonymous source known to the Nugget. “There’s no hair, no tracks, no scat, nothing.” And also… The Coast Guard crew delivered him to an ambulance in Nome, which took him to Norton Sound Health Regional hospital. “We were told to get a man who had been mauled by a bear,” said Jim West Jr., the Nome Volunteer Fire and Ambulance chief. “He walked off the helicopter and walked into the ambulance. He had no animal bites and wasn’t bleeding.” Local police do admit that the area is known for its bear population, however, and the traumatized Jessee is…

USPS Delivers Defiant Message to White House Regarding Vaccine Mandate

This is a slap in the face to the Biden administration.

According to the Biden administration, trouble is coming, and it will arrive in the form of another prolonged economic downturn and possible lockdowns, if we don’t somehow get this “delta” variant of COVID-19 under control. The issue, according to many medical experts, is that this mutated version of the primary coronavirus pandemic strain, is spreading too rapidly among the unvaccinated, and without a significant number of Americans suddenly deciding to get inoculated in the near future, we may not reach “herd immunity” for months. Now, in an effort to speed up the stagnating vaccination rate, President Joe Biden is set to announce that all federal workers should be vaccinated, or face a grueling COVID testing protocol that was intentionally designed to be uncomfortable. The United States Postal Service isn’t taking the news lying down, however. The influential American Postal Workers Union on Wednesday said, at this point, it opposes a coronavirus vaccine mandate from the Biden administration but encouraged workers to voluntarily take the jabs. “While the APWU leadership continues to encourage postal workers to voluntarily get vaccinated, it is not the role of the federal government to mandate vaccinations for the employees we represent,” the union said in a statement obtained by Fox News. The union did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News. The union said in the statement that the safety of its workers is “of paramount importance” but “at this time the APWU opposes the mandating of COVID-19 vaccinations.” The Biden administration’s mandate will not be 100% iron clad according to sources familiar with the matter, but, rather, would be an incredibly strong suggestion with some terribly annoying hoops to jump through to abstain.
