Highlights of the News

Donald John Trump is still our president. Alas, poor Jemima. I knew her well.

ITEM 1: Start the day with some good news.

The Daily Mail reported, "FBI tracked down white woman who set cop cars alight by tracing custom t-shirt she wore at a Philadelphia demonstration to Etsy -- which led them to her LinkedIn and Poshmark accounts."

She should have worn an Etsy-betsy, teeny-weeny yellow polka dot bikini.

She faces 80 years in prison.

Notice, they mentioned she was white. The press has moved on from Name That Party to Name That Race. Adjust your reading accordingly.

ITEM 2: The hits keep coming.

The Wheeling Intelligencer reported, "Bethany College on Wednesday removed the name of the late U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd from its student health center, saying the college can no longer allow the Byrd name to represent how we lead in today’s world.

"Byrd, a U.S. senator who represented West Virginia for more than 50 years, died in 2010. He was [an organizer for] the Ku Klux Klan in the early 1940s but later in his career denounced the organization.

"Bethany College President Tamara Rodenberg, in a written statement, said this is a chance for the college to move into a new shared future."


One down, and all this idolatry to go.

ITEM 3: Did Dan Rather return to CBS?
The difference between 1968 and 2020 (besides 52 years) is Cronkite did not encourage violence.

ITEM 4: Gateway Pundit reported, "On Wednesday night as many as 56% of Atlanta police officers called off of work after Officer Garrett Rolfe was charged with felony murder in the shooting death of Rayshard Brooks.

"Several calls went unanswered in Atlanta last night due to the shortage of police officers.

"On Thursday morning the Atlanta Police Foundation announced it was giving every police officer in Atlanta a $500 bonus.

"The Atlanta Police Foundation is a private organization that provides support to the mayor, the Chief of Police and the Atlanta Police Department."

As politicians sacrifice officers at the altar of the mob, the cops fight back.

I am with the police on this one.

Hat tip: Pro Trump News.

ITEM 5: The fascism continues.

Breitbart News reported, "Facebook removed an ad from the Trump campaign earlier today attacking Antifa, citing its policy on 'organized hate.'

"The ad, now removed by Facebook, denounced Antifa, the decentralized movement of far-left agitators known for acts of domestic terrorism and political violence.

"During the George Floyd riots, Attorney General William Barr described the actions of Antifa as domestic terrorism, and President Trump has also confirmed that he intends to label Antifa a domestic terrorist organization.

"The now-deleted Trump ad featured an inverted red-and-black triangle to symbolize the Antifa movement, which uses the red-and-black color scheme in their badges, flags, and propaganda as a form of ideological identification. Red-and-black are the historical colors of the anarcho-communist movement, and red triangles are an Antifa symbol according to products available for purchase."

Retaliate, Mister President, because if they can do this to you, the rest of us have no hope.

ITEM 6: PJ Media reported, "Rioters burned down the very club where George Floyd had worked. They also wreaked havoc on the local community, black and white alike.

"Black business owner K.B. Balla broke into tears while recounting the destruction wreaked upon his sports bar in Minneapolis. 'I don’t know what I’m gonna do, I worked so hard to get here, so hard,' he said. Balla, a fireman, had invested his life savings into this Scores Sports Bar. The bar had planned its grand opening in the spring but coronavirus lockdowns put it on pause. As a GoFundMe page explains, 'Scores Sports Bar was LOOTED, VANDALIZED, and DESTROYED.' Looters cleaned it out, twice, destroying his life’s work.

"Thanks to the generosity of Americans, however, this is not the end of Balla’s story.

"A GoFundMe campaign for Scores Sports Bar aimed to raise $100,000 to help rebuild the business. It has raised $1,142,720, and more than 37,000 people have contributed.

"Yet for every Scores Sports Bar, there are hundreds of businesses that did not receive enough attention to raise $1 million. Cities like Minneapolis will struggle for years to overcome the destruction of these riots. It is absolutely heinous that speaking out about this destruction is considered anathema on the left."

Businesses destroyed by the riots should sue the BLM foundation, which has raised 30 times as much as Balla did.

ITEM 7: Washington Free Beacon reported, "New York governor Andrew Cuomo (D.) told NPR on Monday that if a community doesn’t want its current police force, 'they shouldn’t have it.'

"'What the community is now saying, all across this nation, We don’t want this type of police force. And if they don’t want it, they shouldn’t have it,' Cuomo said."

Now do the lockdown.

ITEM 8: The Associated Press reported, "The Supreme Court on Thursday rejected President Donald Trump’s effort to end legal protections for 650,000 young immigrants, the second stunning election-season rebuke from the court in a week after its ruling that it’s illegal to fire people because they’re gay or transgender."

The Constitution be damned.

John Roberts must stop the Orange Man because the Orange Man is (pause for the irony) a threat to democracy.

I try not to hate too many people, but the chief justice is going out of his way to be despised.

ITEM 9: The Los Angeles Times reported, "Gov. Gavin Newsom on Thursday ordered all Californians to wear face coverings while in public or high-risk settings, including when shopping, taking public transit or seeking medical care, following growing concerns that an increase in corona virus cases has been caused by residents failing to voluntarily take that precaution."

We fought a revolution amid a smallpox epidemic that killed one-third of those infected.

We cannot surf because of a virus that presents a near zero threat to healthy people under 65?

ITEM 10: NBC reported, "House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., on Thursday announced that she has ordered the removal of portraits of four House speakers who served in the Confederacy that are on display at the Capitol."

The story did not mention that all of them are Democrats.

ITEM 11: WCCO reported, "The Minneapolis Park Board has voted in favor of making all city parks places of refuge for people experiencing homelessness.

"The vote comes after weeks of upheaval for the homeless community. A Midtown hotel was being used as a sanctuary, then was cleared out last week. Since then, hundreds have been living in Powderhorn Park in south Minneapolis.

Covid-19 apparently does not spread among the homeless.

Or rioters.

Or looters.

Only people who attend church or are Jewish must wear masks and stand 6 feet apart.

ITEM 12: Christopher Barron reported, "Rick Wilson was a little known Republican operative before 2016. A little known operative with mountains of crushing debt. A guy desperate for a reinvention to rescue his career."

Wilson became the No. 1 go-to Never Trumper on cable news.

Barron wrote, "The only problem for Wilson is that the real fan of the Confederacy and white nationalism isn’t President Trump. It’s Rick and his wife.

"Photos of Rick and his wife’s cooler – emblazoned with a giant Confederate battle flag and the phrase THE SOUTH WILL RISE AGAIN – emerged on social media. Wilson initially deleted the picture from social media. Then, he claimed it was fake. Unfortunately for Wilson, more photos of the racist cooler emerged from his wife’s social media."


We shall see if the liberal media cans him. Likely not. "Coon Man" Northam (as he was called in college) is still the Democrat governor of Virginia.

ITEM 13: Fox reported, "Chick-fil-A’s Dan Cathy asks white Christians to repent of racism."

Capitalist success enables CEOs to afford communism. I only go to Chick-fil-A on Sundays now.

ITEM 14: Business Insider reported, "Some of Wall Street's most prominent names have donated thousands of dollars to Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez's opponent in the upcoming Democratic primary in New York, data from the FEC shows. Federal Election Commission data shows that donors including Goldman Sachs' CEO David Solomon, Blackstone's Stephen Schwarzman, and hedge fund behemoth Paul Tudor Jones have given to the campaign of Michelle Caruso-Cabrera."


Looks like AOC is in for a fight.

The story also said, "Caruso-Cabrera trails AOC significantly in the fundraising stakes, raising just over $2 million, compared to Ocasio-Cortez's $10.5 million."

It's Bambi versus Godzilla time in politics.

ITEM 15: Fox reported, "The Senate on Thursday voted 51-42 to confirm Trump nominee Judge Justin Walker to the second-highest court in the country, marking the 199th Article III judge confirmed to this point in the president's term. The vote was nearly along party lines, with only GOP Maine Sen. Susan Collins joining Democrats in opposition."

52 of the nation's 179 appeals court judges are now President Trump appointees.

That's 52 more than Hillary appointed.

Also, she never got to appoint Justices Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch.

ITEM 16: SEC suddenly discovers 12 of its teams are from states that were in the Confederacy.
Ban them all from championships.

Signed the University of Missouri and the University of Kentucky.

ITEM 17: The Associated Press reported, "Nursing home residents account for nearly 1 in 10 of all the coronavirus cases in the United States and more than a quarter of the deaths, according to an Associated Press analysis of government data released Thursday.

"As federal data collection becomes more robust, a clearer picture is emerging of the ravages of covid-19 in nursing homes. About 1.4 million older and medically frail people live in such facilities, a tiny share of the American population that has borne a crushing burden from the pandemic. Most residents have been in lockdown since early March, isolated from families and friends, even in death."

So why did we shut down the schools?

The churches?

The restaurants?


Fire Fauci.

FINALLY, June is Accordion Awareness Month.

Every day is Life Appreciation Day.


  1. The ONLY thing I don't like about Trump is his "Law and Order" schtick. While I agree whole heartedly, it would sound better if he said, "Equal Justice under the Law."

    1. Without Order, there is no Justice.

      Just a rope and a mob.

  2. Item #1: Why Antifa wears all black.

    Item #2: From the impressive Wikipedia list looks like Robert "King of Pork" Byrd was good at spreading the wealth around.

    Item #13: So very clever of Don to only do Chick-fil-A on Sundays so as to avoid the crowds.

    Item #14: With AOC the amount donated from within her district is likely tiny. At one point it was 1.4%. But she's the national darling of the Socialists so rakes in money from across the country.

    We'll see how that plays out on Tuesday.

    1. The owner of Chick-fil-A know says you need to shine a blacks shoes. Just in. Look it up when you aren't on you knees shinin shoes.

  3. Glad to know that both Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben's faces will be replaced by Greta Thunberg's.

    1. They're hiding out in Uncle Tom's cabin and praying they won't be found by the p-hat wearing virtue signaling sjw.

    2. They can have cream of wheat for breakfast. Uncle Tom makes a good bowl.

    3. Ever notice that grits are produced by Quaker?so are grits racist?
      BTW even in my trying to be healthy life I indulge in
      my favorite breakfast biscuits-n-gravy with a side 'o grits.I just made myself hungry..

    4. Grits are a Southern food. Southern foods are racist. Therefore Grits are racist. And hominy. And sugar cane. And rice. And hogs. And . . .


    5. Actually, can't put St. Greta [sic] on there - she's white, and that would be a lack of "diversity" [sic].

      Here's the problem.

      You can't put non-white faces on these things because that's racist.

      You can't put white faces on these things because that's not "diverse."

      So the only way to untie that knot is to forbid the placement of any images of living creatures on such things.

      Which means that the screaming morons are heading for the adoption of Sharia law on this subject.

      Good grief...

    6. Rumor has it that Mrs Butterworth's syrup will be repackaged and rebranded. In the fall it will be introduced as Aunt Jemima Butterworth syrup.

  4. Gotta wonder at this point if the REAL goal here is to prevent the SEC from continuing to KICK EVERYONE’S ASS in football.

    1. No you will see that the goal is to remove everyone who is WHITE from participating. Problem is that the majority of those who still care about it will be locked up for being in the violent riots. More intelligent individuals can still view the stars on most wanted posters.

    2. The ass kicking will continue Z. The last threat came from the SEC commissioner.

      There is a move on internally to change the flag. This time it is not being driven by outsiders but within the state. The funny part is the leading contender for a replacement flag is known as “The Stennis Flag” designed by the granddaughter of Senator John Stennis. Look him up!!

  5. ...Snickered at #13; lol'd at #15! ZB

  6. 13-
    Unfortunately, they're not the only ones going all-in on virtue signalling. John Deere announced a foundation to donate money to naacp, aclu,united negro college fund and other racially exclusive organizations. I guess it's just not 'virtuous' enough to give to united way, boys and girls club, ymca and other places that actually benefit an entire community regardless of skin color. Building quality agro equipment, servicing their customers, and providing good jobs isn't ethical enough anymore.
    (I wonder if they'll stop making cotton pickers because they're racist?)

    1. You have answered your own question.

    2. Now wait a cotton-pickin' minute!


  7. One conclusion that I have come to as to why black men seem to hate WHITE men. It may be because as we get older we can still do comb overs with our hair but they cannot.

  8. I am going to guess Aunt Karen syrup tastes like bile.

  9. Deplorable Don: "I only go to Chick-fil-A on Sundays now."


    1. Evangelicals are many times a problem rather than a solution. The best rules to follow are Natural Laws of men.

    2. Refusing to listen Evangelicals is a serious problem. It's why you have the chaos and mayhem we have all seen over the past few weeks. Natural laws of men is exemplified by a rope and a mob.

  10. #13 - After all the support they got from Christian conservative churchgoers when they were the target, they decide to kowtow to the BLM mob and turn their back on their supporters. Time for agree with the LGBT idiots and boycott them. I don't care how tasty their chicken is.

    1. Next they will only serve Hiatal chicken.

  11. ITEM 4: "On Thursday morning the Atlanta Police Foundation announced it was giving every police officer in Atlanta a $500 bonus.”

    $500? You couldn’t pay me to go on that job. What’s $500 when you’re unjustly charged with 1st degree murder by just doing what you’re trained to do?

  12. #8. I've been calling him the supreme injustice of the court for a very long time. He is as disappointing as Stevens.

    1. #16. Look up the history behind the Tigers. Mizzu is just another racist hole hiding it's past.

  13. 3: The difference between 1968 and 2020 (besides 52 years) is Cronkite did not encourage violence.

    Unless it was against US troops and the South Vietnamese people.

    6: Businesses destroyed by the riots should sue the BLM foundation, which has raised 30 times as much as Balla did.

    And then sue Dr Evil and Fake News. that's where the money comes from.

    11: Only people who attend church or are Jewish must wear masks and stand 6 feet apart.

    Yellow stars are next.

    17: So why did we shut down the schools?

    Ya got me, but they're going to regret it. All those kids staying home with Mom and Dad, getting homeschooled.

    They've lost a generation, they say.

    And a lot more than that.

    1. The blm foundation is actually a pro-cop group who has been showered with money lately because people think it is the blm movement group. The blm movement group are the ones behind all the riots

  14. 8. Actually, the third rebuke. The scotus refused to hear the case that would require california to follow immigration law. So, that's two immigration defeats in ONE week!

    Notice they didn't rule on the EO. They determined it would inconvenience the daca people. F them!

    I think President Trump should impose 100's of Executive Orders with everything on his wish list. Let them sue. Overwhelm the courts. Start with electors from states that wholesale mail in ballots don't count.

    If the democrats and scotus think EO's are fine let them regret that decision.

    11. Tests conducted in la on the homeless determined very few had the chicom virus. That was when they lived outside. The garcetti decided to put them into recreation centers during the quarantine. I wonder how many would test positive after that??

    16. Time to find a new commissioner. What does an athletic association have to do with a state's flag?

  15. This will all be over when they use special forces toreturn Ghislaine Maxwell from Israel and then find out why her people killed Epstein.

    1. Did I say this is only in my dreams. If it happened we would not even need to vote the incumbents out, they would all be removed for the crimes they continue do because of the videos of all of their involvements in Epstein's Mossad blackmails.

  16. #2 I think US Senator Chris Coons should have to change his last name!

  17. I laughed at Item 16. BTW, Missouri and Kentucky were slave states, and stars for them are on the Confederate flag. So now it's the whole SEC that goes down.

  18. 4. The Atlanta mayor tells the police to remember their commitment while conveniently forgetting his oath to uphold the Constitution that guarantees innocence until proven guilty and a whole host of other things he denies them.

    A one day strike is insufficient. Make it a week. Let the people of Atlanta get what they voted for, good and hard.

    5. Nationalize it. They're communists. How can they complain?

    6. BLM, Antifa, and anybody who funds them. (Look'n at YOU filthy rich liberal billionaires)

    7. Instead they'll get the Mexican model of rival street gangs warring over turf. You get the police force you deserve...good and hard.

    8. The United States is a kritarchy. Rule by sovereign judges. Only the judiciary is above appeal. And judges routinely overturn popular initiatives voted for by the people who are supposed to be sovereign.

    The states should demand the ability to overturn Supreme Court decisions. Constitutional amendment? Probably.

    9. My recommendation to the police in California. They might want to consider who's side their going to be on in the upcoming civil war and if they really want to piss off someone who might be on their side...or stick with the side that will betray them in a second.

    10. The Democratic Party Is, Has Been, and apparently always Will Be, the Party of Slavery.

    The plantations have changed. The desire to own people as property remains.

    11. HA-HA-HA-HA-HA......HA-HA-HA-HA-HA. You know how cold Minnesota parks get in the winter?

    I'm not talking about for the homeless people. I'm talking about the the people who vote for this nonsense and are about to make Detroit look prosperous.

    12. One of the principle characteristics of a so called "Progressive" is projection.

    Christians project their sins onto a savior who asked for it. So called "Progressives" absolve their sins by projecting them onto anybody walking by. Yes. So called "Progressivism" is a religion.

    13. On Sunday? Why so often.

    Always enjoyed their cow billboards. Have eaten there precisely once. Not going to be rushing out to change that now.

    14. Trump proved money doesn't by elections. Doesn't matter what AOC rakes in if she hasn't done anything for her district and they know it.

    15. How many of them are Roberts and Gorsuches?

    16. They should start their own conference.

    The Liberty League.

    J in StL

  19. Cronkite did incite violence and was Just as bad as Rather

  20. #7 I guess I missed it when all those communities held referendum votes on what kind of police forces they want.

  21. #10
    The story did not mention that all of them are Democrats
    That should be
    The story did not mention that all of them were Democrats

    Because them refers back to the speakers not the portraits.
    Because portraits can’t be democrats
    And the speakers are all in the past
    Because they’re all dead.

    Doesn’t mean they’re not still voting, though.
