1 – White House clarifies position on Ukraine after Biden press conference
Fox News reports: The White House on Wednesday clarified President Biden’s position on Ukraine after an earlier press conference caused some confusion.

Biden told reporters at a marathon press conference that Russia would be held accountable if it were to invade Ukraine, but there seemed to be a caveat when he went further and said it depends on the actions Moscow takes.

“It’s one thing if it’s a minor incursion and we end up having to fight about what to do and not to do,” he said. Detractors saw the comment as giving Russian President Putin permission to invade.

Jen Psaki, the White House press secretary, posted the White House’s statement shortly after the press conference that warned the Kremlin against any incursion:

President Biden has been clear with the Russian President: If any Russian military forces move across the Ukrainian border, that’s a renewed invasion, and it will be met with a swift, severe, and united response from the United States and our Allies. President Biden also knows from long experience that the Russians have an extensive playbook of aggression short of military action, including cyberattacks and paramilitary tactics. And he affirmed today that those acts of Russian aggression will be met with a decisive, reciprocal, and united response.

Even CNN was horrified:

DML: Magoo is not only incompetent, but he’s a national security threat!

2 – Canadian truckers block highway at US border to protest Covid vaccine mandates
The Independent reports: Dozens of Canadian truck drivers have blocked the highway near the US-Manitoba international border to protest against Covid-19 vaccine mandates.

Videos shared on social media showed truck drivers carrying Canadian flags and holding a demonstration on the Manitoba Highway 75, which connects the Emerson community in Manitoba with the US city of Pembina in North Dakota.

The demonstration slowed down traffic on both sides and caused delays for vehicles both entering and leaving Canada.

Below is a message from one fed-up trucker:

DML: If you thought there was a “supply chain crisis” before, just wait until the effects of THIS play out!  Truckers hit with mandate – but what about all the illegal aliens pouring right across the border, with no mandate at all!

3 – Absentee ballot drop boxes can’t be used in Wisconsin any longer, a Waukesha County judge rules
The Milwaukee Journal reports: A Waukesha County judge ruled Thursday that absentee ballot drop boxes can’t be used in Wisconsin, potentially upending aspects of the spring elections and the fall’s high-profile contests for governor and U.S. Senate.

After hearing three hours of arguments, Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Michael Bohren determined state law allows absentee ballots to be returned in person or by mail — but not in a ballot drop box.

“It’s all good and nice, but there’s no authority to do it,” Bohren said of the use of drop boxes.

He said he would finalize an injunction in 10 days ordering the state Elections Commission to withdraw long-standing advice to municipal clerks around the state that says they can use absentee ballot drop boxes.

Drop boxes have long been available in some Wisconsin communities, but their use expanded greatly in 2020 when absentee voting exploded because of the coronavirus pandemic. More than 500 of them were available during the presidential election, according to a database compiled by the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism.

DML: One vote per each American citizen eligible to vote. What’s so hard about that. END the ballot box stuffing!

4 – NCAA updates policy on transgender participation, to let each sport set eligibility requirements
ESPN reports: The NCAA announced a new policy Wednesday in which eligibility requirements for transgender athletes will be determined by each sport’s national governing body.

The new requirements go into effect immediately. The previous policy, adopted in 2010, was uniform across all sports and was based on hormone therapy requirements.

The new policy comes at a time when transgender athletes continue to be a focus of national debate. Since 2020, 10 states have enacted laws restricting participation for transgender athletes in school sports, many of which affect collegiate participation at the competitive, club and intramural levels.

This winter, University of Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas, who is transgender, recorded the top times in the country in the 200-yard and 500-yard women’s freestyle. Under the NCAA’s new policy, Thomas would need to be in compliance with USA Swimming’s criteria in order to participate at the NCAA championships in March.

USA Swimming did not respond to a request to provide details of its existing policy. The University of Pennsylvania also did not respond to a request for comment.

“We are steadfast in our support of transgender student-athletes and the fostering of fairness across college sports,” said John DeGioia, NCAA Board of Governors chair and Georgetown president. “It is important that NCAA member schools, conferences and college athletes compete in an inclusive, fair, safe and respectful environment and can move forward with a clear understanding of the new policy.”

DML: What’s really going to change? Nothing, it appears. Outrageous.

5 – Pennsylvania parents outraged after school employee tapes mask to child’s face
Fox News reports: Parents in a Pennsylvania school district have expressed outrage after a photo of a school employee using tape to affix a mask to a child’s face went viral online. The school district has confirmed that the photo is genuine.

“Pro-mask or anti-mask, I hope we can all agree that taping masks to children’s faces crosses the LINE,” the Facebook group North Penn Stronger Together posted online Monday with the photo. “This was not a joke for the child or the parents.”

The North Penn School District confirmed that the picture is genuine.

“An image taken in one of our classrooms last week and circulating on social media does not represent the universal values that the North Penn School District strives to instill in both our students and staff,” the school district admitted in a statement Wednesday. “After an immediate investigation, it was determined that while the incident was isolated and no malice was intended, the actions of the teacher were entirely inappropriate and unacceptable, no matter the context.”

“We understand that the act of taping a mask to a student’s face is concerning to many and apologize that it occurred,” the district added. “The matter is serious and it is being addressed with the employee. However, all personnel and student matters are confidential and no further information can be provided.”

DML: This is child abuse!  That woman should be fired immediately.

  1. I’m perfectly ok with dealing with supply chain issues if it means hard working people are not medically forced against their will to inject a potentially dangerous foreign substance into their bodies that has been proven to not stop spread or prevent death on a virus that is less than 1% deadly. Stand strong truckers! You were the only ones working and keeping food on our tables during the Spring of 2020 and this is the disrespect you get. Keep fighting these tyrannical govts!

  2. Lmao @ Psaki, I’m sure she even braced herself for his “solo” speech, I guess she has become now MgGoos’ “auto corrector” similar to a. iPhone.

    Didn’t this bumbling fool also give a list to Putin of “16 organizations nor to hack”? Pretty please!

  3. The NCAA are cowards. Just pass the buck, what’s up with that? Transgenders need their own league to compete against each other, not their chosen identity. Save female sports for biological females. The teacher who taped the mask to that child should be fired and arrested!! It is child abuse. I have no words on Biden. His behavior should ALARM everyone. Buckle up! It can get worse!

    • You might be OK with the supply chain issues, but that is short sighted. When small businesses have no products they go out of business. When the big box retailer has no merchandise, they have no need for employees. Already lumber is so costly that builders are putting off projects. Gasoline/oil is transported by trucks. Remember we’re not getting a pipeline. This BS mandate is going to hurt a lot more then truckers.

  4. I am completely outraged at Biden’s response to Russia invading the Ukrainian border. What in the world is going on? Biden is a complete disaster and security threat to the US and our allies.

  5. America is DOA as long as citizens remain absolutely STUPID , pretending Biden is JUST a bungling incompetent dementia moron, failing in everything?? 🤣 QUITE THE OPPOSITE, he has been allowed to carry out his horrific achieved CRIMINAL TREASON & HEALTHCARE GENOCIDE goals in his Deliberate actions to DESTROY CONSTITUTIONAL AMERICA with NO PERSONAL CONSEQUENCES WHATSOEVER?? AN ASTRONOMICAL DISGRACE BEYOND BELIEF!!
