A bountiful crop this bright and frosty morning, thanks in large part to the second attack on the Capitol yesterday, resulting in the death of yet another Capitol policeman, and the perpetrator. Technically, this shouldn't be election related at all, but thanks to the Capitol incursion, it need discussion in the same vein. The actual attack (if that's what it really was) occurred around 1 PM. Matt Margolis at PJ Media with the breaking news, Capitol Police Officer and Suspect Dead Following Knife Incident
The Capitol Police Twitter account reports that “USCP is responding to the North Barricade vehicle access point along Independence Avenue for reports someone rammed a vehicle into two USCP officers. A suspect is in custody. Both officers are injured. All three have been transported to the hospital.” USCP later corrected the announcement, clarifying that the vehicle incident occurred on Constitution Avenue, not Independence Avenue.
The driver of the car let the car, and attacked the officers, and was shot and
later died. AllahPundit at Hot Hair has the detail, Suspect Killed After Ramming Two Police Officers With Car At Capitol;
Update: Officer Dead; Update: Suspect ID’d? Update: Officer ID’d. The officer was identified as William "Billy" Evans, and the perp
as a 25 year old Indiana man named Noah Green. Ace, Media Holds Its Breath To Find Out If Story About a Man Ramming the Capitol

If he's white, it's a Major National Story.
If it turns out he has a name like Aminadab Gaxiola Gonzalez, then it's not a story, and anyone asking why it's not a story will be declared to be a racist by a Daily Beast racist.
Without having the slightest clue about the "security incident" at the Capitol, I'ma go ahead and call white nationalist terrorism on this one.— Davidm1108 (@davidm1108) April 2, 2021
And on to the next major topic, ESPN, MLB moving 2021 All-Star Game from Atlanta over Georgia voting law
Major League Baseball announced Friday that it is moving the 2021 All-Star Game out of Atlanta in response to a new Georgia law that has civil rights groups concerned about its potential to restrict voting access for people of color.
The 2021 MLB draft, a new addition to All-Star Game festivities this year, will also be relocated.

This is another step on the continuum. It is remarkable how many corporations; and yes, professional sports are corporations first and foremost; are willing to collapse their business model on behalf of wokeism and political ideology. However, that said, this is a predictable step when you think about our earlier discussions of blue regions and red regions and how they would break-down in a soft civil war surrounding politics and freedom.

State of Georgia Helping Delta Airlines Reduce CO2 Emissions and Tyler O'Neil at PJs explains Georgia House Sends Woke Capital a Wake-up Call After False Attacks on Election Integrity Law
On Thursday, the Georgia House fired a warning shot against woke capital. Legislators voted to start taxing jet fuel shortly after Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian repeated Democratic talking points condemning Georgia’s new voter integrity law in racial terms. The tax vote will not necessarily translate into policy, since the Georgia Senate has already gone out of session, but the move still sent a powerful message.

So, like they wouldn’t be able to figure out that the number beside where it says “DL NO.” is the one they are supposed to use? Please also note that the sample driver’s license he used was one that included a photo of a black woman.

Former Trump aide Max Miller drew more than half a million dollars in the first month of his campaign against a Republican who backed impeachment.
The money raised by Miller, a 32-year-old former White House adviser to former President Donald Trump, comes from contributions by more than 2,500 donors across the 50 states, according to Fox News.
Miller is challenging GOP incumbent Ohio Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, who was one of 10 House Republicans who voted in favor of the "incitement of insurrection" article of impeachment following the Jan. 6 breach of the Capitol. Trump was acquitted by the Senate in February. Trump became the first president in history to be impeached twice, let alone acquitted both times.
Trump endorsed Miller shortly after he announced his candidacy.
