Hey, remember 'contact tracing'? Whatever happened to that? Joe Biden's mask mandate never happened, either. What gives? Even Team Gates is falling apart. Did the lunatics at Davos jump the shark?
In this edition of The Editor's Desk, Michael J. Matt talks good news. With mask mandates collapsing all over the country, and Blue state governors losing in court, there's an opportunity to push back against the COVID Stupid.
AmericanExperiment.org: For the first time since invoking emergency orders, Gov. Tim Walz lost a court battle challenging his emergency powers, specifically his orders limiting church worship services, treating them differently than grocery stores, retail outlets and sports venues. The Upper Midwest Law Center (UMWLC) prevailed in federal court this week on behalf of Northland Baptist Church and Living Word Christian Center against the state’s motion to dismiss the case on March 30, 2021. After losing their motion to dismiss, Attorney General Keith Ellison and Walz decided to settle the case, meaning current and future emergency orders can no longer discriminate against churches on capacity limits.
Acting as our benevolent leader, Walz will likely announce later today that churches will be allowed to open to full capacity because his administration has made so much progress on vaccinations and mitigation efforts. But make no mistake about it — any relaxation of church capacity is court ordered.

REMNANT COMMENT: While this news is welcome and encouraging, the conspicuous absence of Catholic priests in the case is a somber reminder of the role that the Catholic Church has played during this 15-month crisis. We'd like to take the opportunity to urge all pastors and priests to pursue a similar course of action to that of these Christian churches, and to reopen their parishes to full capacity, for the good of souls and the greater glory of God.
At the end of April, Rev. Brian J. Shanley, O.P., the new president of St. John’s University—an ostensibly Catholic institution—sent the following email to faculty and staff, under the subject line “LGBTQ+ Climate Assessment”:
Earlier this semester the Office of Equity and Inclusion engaged the Transgender Training Institute to conduct an LGBTQ+ climate assessment. As I read the survey results, I was disheartened to learn about the many negative experiences of our LGBTQ+ students, employees, and alumni: a lack of support, neglect, ignorance, bias, and prejudice. As the report indicates, our non-binary and transgender members have experienced acute distress, and the lack of BIPOC participants leaves gaps in our knowledge of the oppression experienced by those who hold multiple minoritized social identities. It is clear, both from the climate survey and my own observations, that much work needs to be done to transform St. John’s into a place that is equitable and inclusive for LGBTQ+ people.
The following news item is from the Washington ComPost, along with some Remnant Editor's heckling in red:
The Washington Post is reporting that the Facebook Oversight Board, an outside and totally “objective” – yeah, RIGHT!—group funded and created by Facebook—well, of course it is!—to review the social media giant’s thorniest policy choices—I do NAZI it as “thorny” so much as fascist!—has decided to uphold the decision to suspend Trump—surprise, surprise!—. The board announced Wednesday morning that Facebook needed to decide within six months—hey, take your time, Mark, you’re a busy guy!—how long Trump’s suspension would last, or if it would be permanent—Gee, Mr. Zuckerberg, Melania and I sure appreciate that!

Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America
What used to be called The Academy Awards, and now is called the “Oscars”—a far less important and elegant name—had the lowest Television Ratings in recorded history, even much lower than last year, which set another record low.
Here's a 3-minute bombshell from Michael Matt's "Editor's Desk" in which TV personality, Bill Maher, no conservative, destroys the Branch Covidians.
We hope you'll share this with those who believe only "stupid Trump voters" question the science behind the Covid narrative.
Maybe they'll listen to Bill. We hope so, since this country is clearly running out of time.
