Highlights of the News

Donald John Trump is still our president.

ITEM 1: Hot Air reported, "Former Neighbor Recalls Tara Reade Telling Her Details Of Sexual Assault By Biden In The Mid-90s."

The neighbor was Lynda LaCasse.

Here is the weird part. The story said, "LaCasse also says she is a lifelong Democrat and (oddly) that she still intends to vote for Biden despite believing Reade’s story about him."

What a sick woman she is. She is going to vote for Chester the Molester.

When I think of how Hillary, Huma Abedin (Anthony Weiner's wife), and Silda Wall (Eliot "Client No. 9" Spitzer's wife) stood by their man in humiliation, I laugh. Tammy Wynette may have sung, "Stand By Your Man," but she was no doormat. She divorced five times.

And there is more smoke. The Bongino Report said, "Lorraine Sanchez, who worked with Reade in the office of a California state senator in the mid-1990s, told Insider that she recalls Reade complaining at the time that her former boss in Washington DC had sexually harassed her, and that she had been fired after raising concerns."

Whether there is fire with this smoke, we shall see. But LaCasse voting for Biden despite believing Reade is beyond the pale.

ITEM 2: The New York Post reported, "In the latest bid to dispel rumors about Kim Jong Un, North Korean state media on Monday published a purported letter from the Hermit Kingdom’s leader in which he congratulated South African President Cyril Ramaphosa on Freedom Day, according to a report.

"The Korea Central News Agency reported that the missive was dated April 27, 2020, reported CNN, which said it had no way of independently corroborating its authenticity."

Since when is independently corroborating authenticity a problem for CNN?

ITEM 3: The Daily Caller reported, "A lawyer representing the DNC and Clinton campaign provided Christopher Steele with information in 2016 regarding an alleged secret communications channel between the Trump Organization and a Russian bank, the former spy told a British court last month.

"That now-debunked tip, from Perkins Coie lawyer Michael Sussmann, set off a chain of events that led to Steele publishing a Sept. 14, 2016 memo accusing the founders of the bank, Alfa Bank, of having illicit ties to Vladimir Putin. A week after Steele wrote that memo, he had another meeting with Sussmann’s colleague, Marc Elias.

"Steele disclosed the previously unreported meetings with Sussmann and Elias during testimony in a defamation lawsuit filed against him by the Alfa Bank founders, according to a court transcript obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation."

The FBI became the KGB on Obama's watch.

The Trump administration is allowing them to walk. They will do it again. Watch.

ITEM 4: News Busters reported, "The social media mob is not too happy with Jeff Goldblum for his blistering critique of woke liberals who fetishize Muslim culture.

The Jurassic Park and Independence Day star dropped the mic on a recent episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race when, as a season 12 guest judge, he confronted a contestant sporting a hijab for sending a mixed message, pointing out the head scarf may be anti-homosexuality and anti-woman.

"Needless to say, folks on the internet and Hollywood media discounted Goldblum’s point."

I thought they were drag queens not drag pawns.

But I would be lying if I were to say I don't enjoy watching liberals devour their own.

ITEM 5The Washington Free Beacon reported, "At first glance, Las Vegas Public Radio (LVPR) looks like any other local FM radio station. It has local community sponsors, vaguely right-wing talk show hosts, and a website begging for a makeover. But there's a disclaimer on the bottom of that website noting that, contrary to the name, the station is not an NPR affiliate.

"That disclaimer makes no mention of the fact that LVPR, the self-proclaimed People's Voice of Las Vegas, is registered to lobby for Huawei Technologies, a Chinese company widely considered a national security threat to the United States."

Finally, someone in the media is honest enough to admit it is working for Red China.

ITEM 6: United Press International reported, "The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday declined to wade into a Second Amendment gun case it heard months ago after New York City modified the law in question to address the plaintiffs' concerns.

"The high court voted 6-3 to stay out of the case, its first involving gun rights in a decade, because it said the change to the New York law closed the case."

It is called cutting your losses. More people should do that in court.

ITEM 7: The Sacramento Bee reported, "Dozens of oil tankers anchor off the Californian coast near Los Angeles and Long Beach as the reduced demand for oil takes hold. The tankers are acting as storage tanks for oil as demand has reduced throughout the corona virus pandemic."

Dollar-a-gallon gasoline comes at a terrible price: $10 trillion in economic losses so far.

ITEM 8: He didn't duck the question.
He has stopped playing their game.

ITEM 9: NBC reported, "The chairman of Tyson Foods is warning that "millions of pounds of meat will disappear" from the national food supply chain as the coronavirus outbreak forces food processing plants to shutter.

"'The food supply chain is breaking,' John Tyson wrote in a full-page advertisement published Sunday in The New York Times, The Washington Post and the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

"'There will be limited supply of our products available in grocery stores until we are able to reopen our facilities that are currently closed,' he wrote in the advertisement, which was also published as a blog post on the company's website."

And so the American republic dies of starvation because of mass hysteria.

ITEM 10: Dr. Craig Smith of the Columbia Department of Surgery gives a daily update on the COVID-19 panic. His latest included its effect on beer.

He wrote, "During March alone, cancellation of events like March Madness and St. Patrick’s Day have left 10 million gallons of beer stranded in bars and restaurants. Beer spoils in 2-6 months, and can’t simply be poured down the drain. That volume of beer will upset pH balance and reduce oxygen content if dumped into any body of water.

"One company hopes to defoam and pH-balance their stock, then seek permission for dumping. Sam Adams is exploring ways to extract the ethanol for use as a gasoline additive. Another is trying to convert the ethanol to hand sanitizer. There is debate over whether and how the losses should be shared between producers, distributors, and bars.

"Does that sound familiar?

"Each keg represents $100-$120 of sunk cost, and companies will want to show possession of those assets on their balance sheets if they enter bankruptcy.

"A final twist — since they want them back, how do producers reverse-ship full kegs? The industry has well established routines for shipping back empty kegs, but not full ones — it takes three times as many trucks to ship full kegs. Ice to Anchorage."

We're going to starve to death -- sober.

Open the country. Now.

ITEM 11: The Associated Press missed the point.
The story is not that she died, but that she lived for 13 years on borrowed time. What a life!

ITEM 12: A reader wrote, "If the corona virus is as virulent as health experts believe, why is it not sweeping through the third world and causing mass sickness and death?

"Obviously, less developed nations do not have first world hospital facilities and healthcare technology. Nor would quarantines work well in places such as Rio, San Salvador, São Paulo etc... with hundreds of thousands of people living in squalor and packed in slums very close to one another. My goodness, Mexico City has something like 15 million people. One would think  instances of corona virus there would make New York a porker in comparison?

"I’m serious when I ask for your take on this. I respect very much your opinion. I simply don’t understand."


I do not understand it either. Maybe we in the West are just a bunch of whiny people who are too afraid of death to live. Or maybe someone is cooking the books to bring our economy down.

ITEM 13: My favorite Florida Man explains how freedom works.
Your rights end where my nose begins.

ITEM 14: Politico reported, "Mitch McConnell is open to cutting a deal to provide reeling states and cities with relief during the pandemic-fueled recession. But it will come at a price.

"In an interview on Monday, the Senate majority leader said it’s highly likely the next corona virus response bill will aid local governments whose budgets have been decimated by lockdowns and now face spiraling deficits. But to unlock that money, McConnell said he will insist Congress limit the liabilities of health care workers, business owners and employees from lawsuits as they reopen in the coming weeks and months."

That seems fair.

Holding governors responsible for their unconstitutional shutdowns seems just. Ignoring the Constitution should void sovereign immunity.

ITEM 15The Associated Press reported, "New York has canceled its Democratic presidential primary originally scheduled for June 23 amid the corona virus epidemic.

"The Democratic members of the State’s Board of Elections voted Monday to nix the primary. New York will still hold its congressional and state-level primaries on June 23.

"New York Democratic Party chair Jay Jacobs has said that the cancellation of the state’s presidential primary would mean a lower expected turnout and a reduced need for polling places."

Will anyone notice?

ITEM 16: The Hartford sent notices to customers that said, "We have an update on your payment from The Hartford’s COVID-19 Personal Auto Payback Plan. We told you before that you’d see a 15% refund on your April and May premiums in about 2 months. Good news — it should only take about 2-3 weeks, and even less if you paid by credit card or EFT.

"There’s nothing you need to do. The payback will happen automatically. Either you will see a credit on your next bill, or if you have already paid in full, you will receive a payment from us.

"How did we speed this up?

"We created an endorsement for auto policies that allows us to make a payment to qualified customers. Each state had to approve the endorsement, and it happened quicker than we expected."

The quarantine means less driving and fewer accidents.

ITEM 17: Sean Hannity announced he has demanded a retraction and an apology from New York Times, which falsely blamed him for a corona virus death.

His website said, "'In the story you published on or about April 18, 2020, entitled 'A Beloved Bar Owner Was Skeptical About the Virus. Then He Took A Cruise,' available at 2020/04/18/nyregion/coronavirus-jjbubbles-joe-joyce.html (the April 18, 2020 Story), you falsely state and falsely imply a connection between Mr. Hannity’s on-air comments and Mr. Joyce’s decision to take a cruise. But what you fail to mention is that Mr. Hannity’s comments could not possibly have influenced Mr. Joyce’s decision because he embarked on his cruise on March 1 (according to your report), while Mr. Hannity made comments on March 9, which you claim influenced his decision. Moreover, you were fully aware that this was the actual timeline, and in order to mislead your readers and support your false narrative, you withheld the date of Mr. Hannity’s comments from your story,' the official letter said."

Clearly, the New York Times lied.

In Sullivan vs. New York Times, the Supreme Court wrongly gave the press a license to libel.


End it.


  1. #5: "Finally, someone in the media is honest enough to admit it is working for Red China."
    Yet, "That disclaimer makes no mention of the fact that LVPR, the self-proclaimed People's Voice of Las Vegas, is registered to lobby for Huawei Technologies,"

    So they are not admitting to working for China, they are only admitting they aren't an NPR affiliate.

    #14: Still waiting for someone in Congress to suggest they all freeze their salaries until the economy reopens. (And then, if they really need money, they can take Cuomo's advice and become an essential worker.)

    #17. IIRC, the article stated he went on a cruise on March 1, and then reported Hannity's comment from "early in March" -- how much earlier can you get than the first of the month?

    1. Earlier in March; Would that not be the zeroth of March?

  2. 1 - not surprising for sick, hard core liberals.

    I have been sick of this panic for a long long time.
    So many excellent posts reinforce my long held belief that this panic was politically motivated and a major detriment to this country.

    12 - excellent point. Liberals don’t use logic.

    13 - what I’ve been doing all along.

    17 - at some point, one of those egregious lies will be the straw that breaks the camels back.

  3. T.S. Eliot was right about April. End it, indeed.

  4. ITEM 1: "But LaCasse voting for Biden despite believing Reade is beyond the pale."

    Sickening. It is what is wrong with the country. Party politics. In this woman's case, it's a safe bet that abortion is behind her choice.

    ITEM 3: "The Trump administration is allowing them to walk. They will do it again. Watch."

    Agree on both, so far. And what's more, seeing that there are no consequences to what the DS did, they will ensure that a Trump like candidate will never win again, and We the People will be force fed their choice of compromised candidates, if we are allowed to vote.

    ITEM 13: Yep, Mr. White has it right. I have NOT worn a mask since day one. I read articles early on, full of data and facts, and decided, like Mr. White, that this is all BS, jumped on by the DS and the leftist cult, to damage a man who they continue to refuse was constitutionally elected POTUS.

    I also note down in the comments to his tweet, a Georgia fan, who agrees with him. A Florida gator and a Georgia bulldog who agree! Is there nothing the Kung Flu cannot do?

    ITEM 14: "Holding governors responsible for their unconstitutional shutdowns seems just."

    I still don't understand why people were sent money from the entity, the federal government, that did not shut down their state. The states should provide the relief. That would go a long way to holding the governors and the legislators accountable, as the relief required to offset losses incurred from their choice to shut down their economies would wreck their state budgets, thus giving them pause before they make a decision like that. Funny, how in times of crisis like this, the states decide that they are for federalism; shut down decision is their choice, while they aren't; relief for that decision should come from the feds. Accepting and rejecting federalism when it's convenient. And the POTUS and US CONgress go along.

    "Ignoring the Constitution should void sovereign immunity."

    That should have started long ago, as past members of the US CONgress have done this many, many times over the years, yet never were held accountable. Too late now. See response to ITEM 3 above.


  5. Re Chicken Wings - We can't buy them if you don't ship them to the stores! In my area, wings were usually going for the absurd price of over $3 a pound! Get them down to a buck a pound, get them in the stores!

    Item 10: It takes three times as many trucks to return a full keg as an empty one? Doesn't the size of the keg stay the same? It seems odd that the empty keg goes back to the brewery to be refilled (no problem!) but returning a full keg for them to dispose of is suddenly a huge problem? Eggheads!

    - Toby Flenderson

    1. Full kegs are a center of gravity issue. Empties would normally be carried on top. They are full of air. If they are full of beer, they have to be lower.

    2. There is also a load capacity limit truckers can haul. there are 124 lbs. of beer in each keg, more or less. It adds up quickly.


  6. 12 The average age in the partially and minimally developed countries is low. Younger people tend to be less affected. People who have other health problems were more likely to have died from them. In fact the shut down in Africa looks like sheer lunacy in light of the pocket swarms that will threaten them with mass famine, which will feed a vicious loop of compromised immune systems and weakened populations.

    However, Ecuador's getting hammered. That may be due to the sewage in the drinking water. Under similar circumstances, Indians will probably be less affected due to their acclamation to cholera and super cholera. No one is sure yet.

    1. People don't live as long down there. This is an "old folks" flu. Lot's of nursing home and assisted living fatalities up here. Down there, not so much.

  7. This comment has been removed by the author.

  8. 12 Just thought of this search, which could go a long way to explain why bodies lifter the streets of Ecuador:

  9. #1 my dear late Mother was a flaming lefty lib all her life. I could see her taking Joe's side in all of this like she did Ted Kennedy's.
    How she and my Cowboy/Indian /Republican father stayed to together is beyond me..
    #4 How is it that Islam is the only religion with rights in the lefty mind.?

    1. The many must be sacrificed for the benefit of the few.

    2. And the fewer they are, the more must be sacrificed. Because scarcity implies value / sarc

  10. I don't always comment, but I do answer questions

    why is Covid-19 not running rampant through 3rd world countries?

    Answer: It is, we just don't see it and this disconnect is NOT being reported. The 3rd world is getting exposed to Covid-19 and not getting symptoms.

    If Western countries did not have Transplant Patients (on immune suppressants), HIV positive (on HIV anti-virals), Nursing Home patients (on opiates), Obese (on food), Diabetics (not usually taking their meds), Cancer patients (on chemo and radiation). The west would much like a 3rd world country in population and health dynamics.

    Western medicine can treat and extend life in ways only dreamed of in most parts of the world.

    But those individuals ARE vulnerable to new out of the blue pathogens. When Covid-19 came along there was not a debate that this would likely take out a few more people than "the flu" but was basically the same kind of flu effect (that is take out the most medially vulnerable).

    No the "debate" if there was one was about how to panic the mass populace into self quarantine thus protecting the medically vulnerable.

    Even Dr Dooms of the CDC must have KNOWN that most healthy people would skate through a Covid-19 pandemic just fine. The whole BIG LIE was to make people think that ANYONE could be a victim when it was MOST likely that MOST deaths would be medically vulnerable people who WOULD die in a few months or 1-2 years ANYWAY.

    This is a tragedy of epic proportions. Dr Fauci has gone on RECORD saying Covid-19 IS TEN TIMES MORE DEADLY THAN THE FLU (TM)!!!

    Dr. Fauci will snidely mock anyone proposing a treatment that is not "Approved" calling success as "anecdotal". While his assertion of Covid-19 10 TIMES lethal IS ANECDOTAL ITSELF!

    Fauci has NO IDEA of the true CFR Fatality Rate. NO IDEA! Yet we take this man's word as gospel.

    Only with the Antibody tests are we getting a clearer picture of the TRUE case number. As that case number rises so declines the CFR. People ARE NOT DYING like Dr Doom kept claiming they would.

    First it was Millions of Americans would die, Then it was 400k, then 200k now it's about 80,000. AND THAT number is counting every single death that is not anvils falling on peoples head as a Covid-19 death! Heck if a patient has a cough in the hospital and passes they probably say Covid-19 related now.

    I am very Angry about this. I am very Angry that we have Propagandists in the media that ignore reasonable people talking because Orange Is Bad!! And elevating Dr Doom Chicken Littles with barely a word of doubt to their failed Chicken Little predictions.

    1. Stupid Americans.

      Stupid Americans elected Duplicitous Cretins.

      Stupid Americans Empowered said Cretins.

      Stupid Americans use their freedom to fuck themselves.

      For there to still be an America, Republic thereof, Americans must not DO Stupid, even those Americans who ARE Stupid Americans.

      The Duplicitous Cretins exploit Stupid as relentlessly as fire consumes fuel, with Stupid being the oxygen fanning the blaze.




    2. Why would you think they would discount "anvils falling on peoples head" when they count falling out of windows and car accidents?

  11. The nutshell of the law:

    You must.

    You must not.

    Not, you may or may not.

    You MUST or you MUST NOT.

    For the law to = actual, the law must be enforced. Enforced = Imposed upon by Force.

    So, the law = Force being imposed upon to compel:

    Doing what the law requires you to do


    Not doing what the law requires you to not do.

    Thus, ONLY those who ENFORCE the law = you do, and you do not do, as the law requires.


    It all resides in those who enforce, aka impose force upon.

    If you, yes, you, choose to comply, then you are imposing upon yourself.


    Get the fuck off of my lawn.

  12. #10 ship the beer to China labeled as a cure for the virus.

  13. AG, I think many of us are feeling that anger. Right now mine is directed toward the jamoke governor of NY. Hey, let's send the people with the virus to the old-folks homes. That way we can create lots of little holocausts. How's the death rate in NY?

    ...btw: Fauci is NIH, not CDC. Although both are DHHS. SOS.

  14. #13. No, the mask rides just beyond the tip of your nose. Don't give them that micrometer, they will want another inch.

    1. #14. As part of any relief, the local or state government should have to 1. Resign. 2. Turn over the reins of power to President Trump for a period of ten years. Not to the office of the president, To Donald Trump.

  15. Item #3 "The Trump administration is allowing them to walk." That, in itself, is a scandal, or worse, a betrayal. The jury is still out, but time is running short. - Gary B

  16. Replying to DOUGLAS DC, RE ITEM #4 :

    "#4 How is it that Islam is the only religion with rights in the lefty mind.?"

    Because Islam is Anti-American (anti Western Civilization) .

    -Big Red

  17. Coronavirus cases in workers of meat packing plants?: Third coronavirus-related death reported in Brown County, case total passes 900

    Who works at these plants?

  18. #6 - The court should not have Passed the buck back to the lower courts. So NY changed the law (because they knew that the SC would not decide in their favor), what's to stop them from changing the law back? If the SC had made a decision against NY, then NY could not change the law back. Now they can. This was cowardly of the SC and is just "kicking the can down the road". It will return in a few years.
