Highlights of the News



Donald John Trump is still your president.

ITEM 1Gary North reported, "Walmart's Healthcare Experiment Has Begun, It May Be A Game Changer."

Walmart Health in Dallas, Georgia, will offer:
  • Primary care
  • Dental
  • Counseling
  • Labs & x-rays
  • Health screening
  • Optometry
  • Hearing
  • Fitness & nutrition
  • Health insurance education & enrollment
Capitalism succeeds where government fails.

ITEM 2The Dallas Morning News reported, "Since surviving a 1991 mass shooting at a Luby's in Killeen, Suzanna Gratia Hupp has lobbied for looser gun control laws that she says could have allowed her to save the 23 victims, including both of her parents.

"'I reached for the gun in my purse on the floor next to me,' Hupp told a congressional committee Wednesday during a hearing on the economic costs of gun violence. She recounted the moments after the killer, George Hennard, crashed his pickup into the restaurant where she was eating with her parents and opened fire.

"'But then I realized that a few months earlier I had made the stupidest decision of my life. My gun was 100 yards away, dutifully left in my car to obey the law because at that time in the state of Texas, carrying a handgun was illegal.'

"Hupp's campaign to ease restrictions on guns has spanned several decades. She won a seat in the Texas House, where she served for 10 years. On Wednesday, she told her story during a hearing of the Joint Economic Committee.

"Hupp, a chiropractor, was invited by fellow Republicans, and she focused her testimony on what she called 'the high cost of gun control.'"

In 1991, Texas had 17,349,000 people and 2,652 murders.

In 2016, it had 27,862,596 people and 1,478 murders.

10 million more people, 1,200 fewer murders.

Yes, there is a price paid for gun control. It is paid in the cemetery.

ITEM 3Breitbart News reported, "Tulsi Gabbard, a candidate for the 2020 Democratic Party presidential nomination criticized President Donald Trump’s response to an attack on an oil production facility in Saudi Arabia.

"Gabbard went on to argue Saudi Arabia’s promotion of extremist Wahhabi ideology was a bigger threat to the United States than Iran."

What part of Death to America does she not understand?

The Democrat Party should register as an agent for Iran.

I have criticized the House of Saud but her slander shows that even moderate Democrats now side with the enemy.

ITEM 4:



The Hill reported, "President Trump on Wednesday said he expects the Environmental Protection Agency to slap San Francisco with a violation notice in the coming days related to pollution associated with the city’s homeless population.

"Speaking to reporters aboard Air Force One, Trump again took aim at Los Angeles and San Francisco over the volume of homeless people in each city. But he escalated his rhetoric, saying an announcement citing San Francisco for environmental violations would come in the next week."

Our president said, "There’s tremendous pollution being put into the ocean because they’re going through what’s called the storm sewer that’s for rainwater. And we have tremendous things that we don’t have to discuss pouring into the ocean. You know there are needles, there are other things.

"It’s a terrible situation — that’s in Los Angeles and in San Francisco,” he continued. “And we’re going to be giving San Francisco, they’re in total violation, we’re going to be giving them a notice very soon."

Banning plastic straws while pooping in the ocean tells you they don't give a poop about the environment.

ITEM 5: Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson responded to California's request for billions to fight the homeless.

He wrote, "Your letter seeks federal dollars for California from hardworking American taxpayers but fails to admit that your State and local policies have played a major role in the current crisis.

"If California's homeless population had held in line with overall population trends, America's homeless rate would have decreased. Instead, the opposite has happened, as California's unsheltered homelessness population has skyrocketed as a result of the State's over-regulated housing market, its inefficient allocation of resources, and its policies that have weakened law enforcement."

The state should start by banning pooping in the streets.

Then it can take the federal money it spends on illegal aliens and spend it on homeless Americans.

ITEM 6: The New York Post reported, "During a visit to the US-Mexico border wall, President Trump autographed one of the posts of the wall with a Sharpie."

A Sharpie?

That will be Article 208 in the impeachment.

ITEM 7: Breitbart News reported, "Left-wing billionaire and political donor George Soros wrote an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal on Monday in which he praised President Donald Trump’s policies toward China. He then urged Congress to maintain the president’s firm stand against Chinese telecom giant Huawei – overriding the White House if necessary, should Huawei become a bargaining chip in the larger trade war."

His support does not bother me. He knows Red China is the skunk at the globalist orgy.

ITEM 8American Military News reported, "Colt Firearms will be ending its production and sales of its AR-15 rifles due to lack of public demand amid excess market capacity."

Colt has been a mess ever since a five-year strike in the 1980s. Replacement workers led to a decline in quality that was so precipitous that the Pentagon dropped it as a supplier of M-16s and awarded the contract to a company in Belgium. That led to an appearance in bankruptcy court to save the company.

In 1998, a virtue-signalling CEO came out for a federal requirement for gun training, which led to a boycott. It also pursued "smart guns" which fed the mistrust.

Then it lost its M-4 contract with the military, which landed another trek to bankruptcy court to save the company.

Expect another trip next year. Smart guns ruined the brand.

ITEM 9: On Monday, New York magazine reported, "Kavanaugh’s Impeachment May Have Just Become a 2020 Issue."

On Thursday, Politico reported, "Trump milks the Kavanaugh backlash: The president and his aides are latching on to the new controversy as a hot-button emotional issue that riles up the GOP base."

The media should be more careful of its wishes because our president has a way of making them come true.

ITEM 10: The Hill reported, "The New York Times on Tuesday announced the closure of its Spanish-language platform, NYT en Español."

Failing in English.

Failing in Spanish.

The Times's financial report looks like my old report cards.

ITEM 11: Ace of Spades reported, "Mortifying: Media Invents So Many Convoluted Euphemisms to Protect Justin Trudeau From the Charge of 'Blackface' That Trudeau Himself Is Forced to Correct Them and Say 'It's Blackface, Guys.'"

Even Canada's leader resents Fake News.

  2. Item 2.
    I'll never forget Dr. Hupps testimony at a congressional hearing years ago when she looked Chuck Schumer and his anti-liberty posse of Democrat politicians in the eyes and stated (paraphrasing):

    "And finally, I keep hearing all of this talk about guns and "hunting and sporting purposes". Congressmen, the Second Amendment isn't about hunting or sporting purposes, it's about protecting all of us from all of you guys."

  3. It's funny listening to the gun grabbers celebrating Colt's decision. The fact is Colt, due to price and quality control, accounts for only a tiny slice of the civilian AR market. Everyone is making them. I can't remember the last time I actually saw a Colt version in the wild. At the gun shop they gather dust.

    I do wonder why they felt it necessary to put out a press release about a minor marketing strategy that the gun buying community would have taken several years to notice, if at all. Corporate virtue signalling? It certainly fits their profile. Colt is strangely almost always on the wrong side of 2nd Amendment fights.

    It's not your great-grand-daddy's Colt Firearms anymore. Hasn't been for years. I'll do a drive by tomorrow and hoist a middle finger for good measure.

    2. Part of Colt's public statement may have to do with distancing themselves from any liability for "mass shootings" involving one of their "assault rifles." The way the Left engages in lawfare, it's not a surprising move for a company already in financial distress. ='[.]'=

  7. #5)  California receives for its Medicaid program (MediCal) 59% of its funds from the federal government and gives illegals aged 19 - 25 health benefits under that program

    As to the Wall, it is interesting that the vertical portions will be filled with rebar and concrete to lessen the chances for cutting through the Wall.  That may explain why the federal Wall has a slower construction rate and is more expense per mile than Fisher's We Build The Wall's private portions.

    1. Illegals also contribute to our homeless problem. I can appreciate ICE, but a few weeks after they started dumping illegals in Phoenix our homeless shelters and churches were overtaxed. I started seeing more homeless in the morning that looked like they'd been sleeping in the desert. They were never a pretty sight, but with grass and dirt on their face and in their hair they look like something out of a horror movie. Keeping the illegals on the southern side of the border should make the homeless problem a bit more manageable.

      That's what the CIA did to Iran on behalf of British Petroleum. You folks who live in fear really think this is about security. Its about OIL and GAS and pipelines.

    3. Jim Acosta, smarting over his lack of attention since televised white house press conferences ended, takes to posting his drivel on blogs.

      "I need to stay sharp" Jim explained in a speech to a room full of anonymous sources. "It takes effort to find fault with the most obvious, common sense positions. I have no doubt I will be on camera at some time in the future and have to stay in practice. There are so many reputations to tarnish."

    4. The resident nony states:
      "You must live under your bed you're so frightened of a 3rd world country." Well, it sure beats how you live, what with Surber living in your head, rent free! Oh, and add Trump in there too!

      nony continues:
      "Besides if a foreign nation installed a dictator in the USA, wouldn't you hate them and call for their death?" Now what country in the world could actually do that nony? That is a false scenario. What a ridiculous thing to post. Par for the course for nony the crusader though. The gibberish you post is beyond belief!

      nony continues:
      "That's what the CIA did to Iran on behalf of British Petroleum." I see you regurgitate what you read from Karl Denninger's site. No doubt you don't troll there, as you'd get the banhammer down on your head, but good! Surber probably keeps you around here for his and our entertainment! Or maybe for pity.

      more nony nonsense:
      "You folks who live in fear really think this is about security. Its about OIL and GAS and pipelines.

      The deep state and AIPAC has you completely bamboozled. Tsk tsk" The idiot who lectures others about living in fear, points out the supposed ominous influence of the all powerful AIPAC. nony, thy name is irony!

    5. So, flo, you do it, again.

      Post a comment to vent your spleen in an acceptable manner.

      And the manner deemed acceptable to flo blo??

      Why, it's the same as the comment poster flo blo blows his jo at!!!

      No substance. At least not stated. Merely implied.

      No direct indication of comprehension.

      Nope.

      Just the blow.

      In an acceptable manner.


      The iranians are being fucked by their own religious, societal standards.

      Fucked by their chosen dictatorship, all in the name of an almighty god being.

      Any sane inhabitants of that region are either long dead or long gone.

      Any still stuck there are too few and too cowered to change anything.

      Just submit.

      That is all there is there for them.

      The insane relish their dominance via terrors rained upon any who object.

      Th insane there do not want to jon their almighty god, merely play that almighty god's violent hand of wrath.

      And try to spread their insanity everywhere.

      So, the comment poster who recurringly posts to decry any who see the insane as they are, fucking lunatics, is stuck in the midst of lunatic nations.

      A little blog comment blathering ain't gonna hurt no one but the butt sensitive.

      Grow some bark on that ass, flo blo.

      And try to post something, anything, here that is not you attemptng to prove you are a worthy snark monster.

    Same with drug control as people are forced to use drugs that are tainted and it kills them. Same thing happened in the 1920's with bootleg alcohol.

    2. It isn't that we have a problem with you abusing drugs, it is what you do in order to afford those drugs since working is most often not an option. I have watched several people destroy their lives with drugs and seen how their families suffered through it and after their untimely deaths. We here might celebrate your drug overdose death IF we learn about it. Your mom will be hurt as well as your half siblings if any. Maybe some one will tell your dad... If he even knows about you.

    3. Prohibition is always assine whenever imposed upon not essential actions.

      Prohibit murder: essential.

      Prohibit theft: essential.

      Prohibit trespass: essential.

      Prohibit fraud: essential.

      Prohibit rape: essential.

      Prohibit whatever kills another, harms another and is intrinsic to inducing same.


      Then see if the cure is worse than the illness.


      There is no perfection in a Creation of Imperfection.

      That lovely tree, so fondly considered as the source of imperfection, bore the fruits of both goodness and badness, thus, both life and efil.

      To be your brother's keeper is not to be your brother's owner.

      And vanity is not merely only limited to the pretty ones.

      So.

      Prohibitions of the non essential to be prohibited is stupid.

  11. Item 5: The economic, social and moral failures of California and democrat strong hold cities are lessons in socialism's failure.

    Every shortcoming in can be traced directly to the marxist policies that were adopted with the promise of being more "compassionate" and more "fair" than what they replaced.

    The end result of extreme income inequality, burdensome taxes, corruption, immorality, violence, business flight, infantile adults, economic stagnation and a tyrannical, insulated elite are the same as in socialist countries: USSR, NAZI Germany, Mao's China, Venezuela...

  22. Don Surber said, Donald Trump has a long history of clownishly pretending to run for president, and people, including many on this network, take him seriously, which irritates me. Donald Trump, in my opinion, is a human being's worst nightmare. Blog post writing services are providing authentical and critical blogs for that type of news reporting.
