Memorial Day Travel Surges Arrives, But Doesn’t Fit Biden Admin’s ‘July 4th’ Storyline

The writing is on the wall, no matter what the speechwriters would prefer.

Can you imagine the speechwriters’ room at the White House this week?  They are watching the pandemic vanish before their very eyes, and with it the possibility of hammering home their “Independence Day” public relations campaign.

From the very start of Biden’s time in office, he’s been hinting at July 4th gatherings as the surefire sign that we’ve beaten the pandemic, and why not?  This makes for the perfect Independence from the Virus storyline, and it would not be surprising to picture a dry erase board in some windowless room in the bowels of the White House filled with July 4th anecdotes and portmanteaus, as the administration’s PR team salivates over all of the possibilities.

But there is a problem:  The pandemic is waning too fast to stretch this thematic/semantic grift into June, let alone another 5 weeks from now.

For some of the more than 37 million Americans likely to travel, an expanding airline industry now means a selection of new, cost-effective options.

“$19 flight — doesn’t really get any cheaper than that,” says Memorial Day traveler Dylan Herrera.

That’s how Avelo Airlines CEO Andrew Levy is trying to boost demand for his new low-cost airline.

“We’re trying to go out there and give customers choice,” Levy told CBS News’ transportation correspondent Errol Barnett. “We have wonderful people, great low fares. And, yeah, we’re just excited to be out in the marketplace.”

And the administration’s hesitance to reopen, even if based upon some desire to execute this July 4th narrative, could have real world consequences for American workers who are waiting for further guideline changes to get back to their jobs, or for businesses who are awaiting the rescinding of capacity restrictions to get out of the red.

McAfee Dead in Prison After Repeatedly Declaring He Would Not Kill Himself

Social media users were quick to remind the world of McAfee’s own words.

John McAfee is a computing legend, having pioneered the way in which systems and networks protect themselves from viruses, malware, spyware, and all the other assorted evils of this internet age. But now he lies dead, having allegedly committed suicide in a Spanish prison cell. Antivirus software tycoon John McAfee died by an apparent suicide in a Spanish jail cell Wednesday evening — hours after reports surfaced that he would be extradited to face federal charges in the US, according to local media. The eccentric tech entrepreneur was arrested in October and was awaiting extradition when he was found dead, police sources told the newspaper El Pais. The newspaper reported McAfee was pulled from his cell in Barcelona and police are investigating the circumstances around his death. Authorities aren’t shying away from calling it a suicide already. “Everything points to suicide,” the newspaper reported, citing justice department officials in the country. A second Spanish newspaper, El Mundo, also reported McAfee had died by an apparent suicide in the jail. But here is where it gets strange:  McAfee has been utterly insistent and consistent about the fact that he would never, ever take his own life, explicitly telling his followers on social media that, should he ever be found dead of suicide, he was killed. https://twitter.com/officialmcafee/status/1316801215083225096?s=20 https://twitter.com/officialmcafee/status/1200864283766251521?s=20 https://twitter.com/truthcrumbs/status/1407788935628079113?s=20 The investigation is ongoing at this time.

Juneteenth isn’t about celebrating the end of slavery in America. It’s about the annual condemnation of America in perpetuity. Democrats aren’t even pretending otherwise. Joe Biden stated, “We can’t rest until the promise of equality is fulfilled for every one of us in every corner of this nation. That to me is the meaning of Juneteenth.” As long as the Democrat Party exists, the promise of equality cannot be fulfilled. The Democrat Party has staked the whole of their political livelihood and future on the perpetuation of real and perceived racial injustice and inequality in America. They need racism to run against racism. It doesn’t matter what Republicans believe Juneteenth represents — the end of slavery in America. What matters is how the holiday will be weaponized and appropriated going forward by the Democrat Party. The swastika too once represented something benign and good — a Sanskrit symbol for well being. It is undeniable today, however, that it represents something horrific and evil. The swastika is synonymous with Nazi Germany. So too is Juneteenth now synonymous with racism in America. Democrats are already referring to Juneteenth as a ‘Second Independence Day.’ We now have two competing Independence days — July 4th for racist white supremacists and Juneteenth for those who believe America has racism in its DNA. Division is now codified in our federal calendar — to be exploited by the Democrat Party annually in perpetuity. This administration has already exploited tragedy after tragedy to condemn America as an inherently racist country — using the Atlanta spa shootings, for example, as irrefutable proof of anti-Asian sentiment, and the George Floyd arrest and death as proof of systemic racism. But the Democrat Party doesn’t exploit every tragedy, only the tragedies that involve white culprits in order to fabricate and promote the false reality and narrative that…
