On May 7 in FL I gave remarks virtually identical to those from GA last night on the Constitution.— Matt Gaetz (@mattgaetz) May 28, 2021
Nobody freaked out (more than usual).
Twitter (and thus lazy MSM reporters) fell for a creative edit that distorted the context.

Last night I finally got fed up with David in Cal's racism and asked him, in no uncertain terms, to leave.
The topic was Trump's labeling of the COVID-19 virus the "China virus" and the "Kung flu," already racist which has resulted in thousands of attacks on Asian Americans in the US, to which David in Cal wrote
"Most of the attacks on Asian Americans were perpetrated by black Americans."
This statement is pure racism. No proof whatsoever, but far more than that, it injects race into a topic for which race is utterly irrelevant. The race of those attacking Asian Americans over COVID-19 is irrelevant. Trying to imply that the race of the attackers is meaningful, that it matters to this problem, that it needs to be entered into the discussion, is exactly what racists do.
David in Cal was once a decent contributor to this blog. Then he turned to Trumpism and in recent months many of his comments have bordered on racism. This one was, as far as I'm concerned, beyond the pale, and I have asked him to leave. I will delete his future comments as soon as I see them. He tried to sneak another one in a few minutes ago and I deleted it. He has become a troll who has infected this blog, repeatedly making claims without evidence, such as about election fraud and now this, and is now persona non grata. I've never done this before but have never before encountered someone of such ill intent. That this a Trumpist shouldn't really be surprising, I'm sorry to say. They have infected the Republican party and are out to devour America. But not here.

Today was a pretty big day in climate activism, with real wins, right out of The Ministry of the Future by KSR, but I'm just not up for blogging. Sad, I know. You can read about them in a million other places, but I have nothing new to add. But you can discuss them in the comments if you'd like. Sorry.
1) Chevron investors demand emission cuts
2) Dutch court tells Shell to cut emissions by half
3) Exxon shareholders buck the company and elect directors demanding climate action.

Wow. This is unhinged. I’m literally looking at our voter registration database on my other screen. Right now.— Stephen Richer—Maricopa Cnty Recorder (prsnl acct) (@stephen_richer) May 15, 2021
We can’t indulge these insane lies any longer. As a party. As a state. As a country.
This is as readily falsifiable as 2+2=5. If we don’t call this out... pic.twitter.com/5tDy1wsZg6

I didn't realize this until the other day, but the 2020-2021 La Nina is now finished, and has been for a couple of months now.
However, there may be another La Nina this fall, according to the International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI) at Columbia University:
