Highlights of the News

July is Patriot Month. A national anthem brings people together. This is why totalitarians in this country hate ours.

ITEM 1: The Redskins still do not have a new name. A reader wrote, "Washington is the capital, therefore Washington Capitalists. Imagine the reactions to that."

I was thinking using DC as the name. Air conditioning made it habitable in the summer.

How about the DC ACs?

ITEM 2: The Washington Times reported, "Brushing aside worries of spurring a new border surge, House Democrats led the push Wednesday to slash ICE funding, saying they were determined to punish the agency for 'willful disregard of Congress’s role' in setting immigration priorities.

"Democrats on the House Appropriations Committee also voted to undo the key Trump policies that helped solve last year’s border surge, including new standards for asylum-seekers and deals with Mexico and Central American nations that helped slow the flow of people headed north. Rep. David Price, North Carolina Democrat, said they were intent on pushing back on 'cruel and arbitrary immigration policies' they say have distorted the immigration system."

Congress sets policy by writing laws.

The president is upholding the laws on the books.

ITEM 3: Discrn reported, "Fox has decided that it will not fire Nick Cannon — as ViacomCBS did — over an anti-white, anti-Semitic rant he delivered during a recent episode of his podcast.

"Cannon will continue working for Fox as host of popular show The Masked Singer, despite the overtly racist remarks in which he, among other things, called people with less melanin 'a little less,' 'closer to animals,' and 'the true savages.'"

Well, the left always said Fox was run by Nazis.

ITEM 4: The Hill reported, "The Supreme Court on Thursday let stand a lower court ruling that could strip voting eligibility from up to 1 million Florida felons who have completed their sentences but have yet to pay outstanding fines, restitution and other fees."

Don't do the crime if you can't pay the fine. (Don't do it.)

ITEM 5: The Washington Examiner reported, "How Attorney General William Barr may yet unleash the power of the Justice Department has House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff unnerved.

"The California Democrat invoked U.S. Attorney John Durham, who is conducting a criminal inquiry of the federal Russia investigation, as he discussed his dread that more serious abuse of federal law enforcement will happen in the coming days."

Schiff need not worry.

Barr and Bullshit Durham are just running out the clock on this one. No indictments despite evidence of 17 times Jimmy the Weasel Comey signed off on lying to a judge to get FISA warrants. That's perjury, which goes unpunished in Washington.

But if you are Martha Stewart, the judges will put you away for fibbing to the investigators even if you were not under oath.

ITEM 6: The New York Post reported, "Surveillance video from outside City Hall appears to show protesters receiving a small shipment of bats before anti-cops activists clashed with officers on the Brooklyn Bridge Wednesday morning.

"The delivery was made by a car parked on the street near City Hall, with one man seen retrieving six bats from the trunk, according to the footage provided by sources.

"Police sources said the bats were delivered so the anti-cop activists could confront a unity rally proceeding over the Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan."

If you believe that was a unity rally, may I interest you in buying that bridge they walked over?

ITEM 7: The New York Post reported, "The Big Apple will restart its planning process to approve the construction of new apartment buildings and other projects as part of the latest effort to get the economy back on track after the corona virus shutdown.

"The announcement from City Hall on Wednesday comes after The Post revealed growing complaints from politicians and affordable housing advocates to get construction moving again."

Between the illegal lockdown and the defunding of police, there soon will be plenty of affordable housing in New York.

By the way, I thought rent control made housing affordable.

ITEM 8: From the Twitter suggestion box.
Instead of sitting around censoring conservatives, maybe Twitter should task employees to protect accounts from hackers.

ITEM 9: I wrote at length about this yesterday.
Black intellectuals are among the shallowest people on Earth. I put them right beside white intellectuals.

ITEM 10: If I were Mike DeWine, I would not have brought this up.
Covid 19 deaths per 1 million population. Ohio: 265. Florida: 218.

ITEM 11: Breitbart News reported, "James Murdoch, the son of billionaire and Fox Corporation founder Rupert Murdoch, and his wife Kathryn have donated $1.23 million to former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign, according to filings.

"New York Times reporter Kenneth Vogel, citing Federal Election Commission (FEC) receipts, first highlighted James and Kathryn Murdoch gave $615,000 each last month to the Biden Victory Fund, a joint fundraising effort between the Biden campaign, the Democrat National Committee (DNC), and state parties."

I predict Tucker Carlson's gig will end this summer. They dumped Bill O'Reilly, didn't they?

By the way, Rupert Murdoch did not found Fox. Vilmos Fuchs did. He was a Jewish refugee from Hungary who Anglicized his name as William Fox. He began the company in 1915. He was a pioneer in moving the film industry from New Jersey to Hollywood. He lost his empire 15 years later, and was convicted of bribery and perjury.

ITEM 12: Remember political humor?

It lives.
If that doesn't brighten your day, I hate to say it but you are a liberal.

ITEM 13: I read this in Gomer Pyle's "Citizen's Arrest" voice.
Impeachment 2 will be lit.

ITEM 14: The older I get, the more I realize success depends not on brains but on doing one's homework.
I never thought anyone would be as good as Sarah Sanders.

McEnany has exceeded her.

ITEM 15: United Press International reported, "Infant mortality has reached an all-time low in the United States, according to data released Thursday by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"In 2018, 21,498 infant deaths were reported across the country, a decline of 4% from the 22,341 deaths reported in 2017, the agency's analysis said.

"Overall, the national infant mortality rate declined to 5.67 deaths per 1,000 live births in 2018, down 2% from the 2017 rate of 5.79 deaths per 1,000 live births, the CDC found."

Not included in infant mortality rates are the million babies executed each year in the womb.

ITEM 16: Another day, another Hate Hoax.
The time has come to punish those who cry wolf.

ITEM 17: Just the News reported, "Goya's Bob Unanue should be able to speak his mind, said Papa John's pizza chain founder John Schnatter while discussing the recent controversy over the Goya Foods CEO's positive comments about President Trump at a White House event."

Schnatter said, "Everybody on the left keeps preaching diversity, unless it's diversity of thought, diversity of philosophy, or diversity of ideology, and if you don't think a certain way, then you get persecuted. That's not diversity.

"Entrepreneurship and creativity and innovation come from independent critical judgment, which is you think for yourself, you believe in yourself, you have independent critical judgment.

"They're trying to paint you in a corner, that if you don't believe 100% in their ideology, then they persecute you, they attack you. And I think that's extremely unhealthy for the country. And I think it's a really bad path for the CEOs to go down. And I think they're scared."

He also praised President Trump for reducing regulations.

Schnatter was culture canceled at Papa John's.

ITEM 18: Dream Team 2020.
They should run for president and vice president of Kardashia.

ITEM 19: The Federalist reported, "When social justice activist and lawyer Derecka Purnell was just 12 years old, she and her sister watched a police officer shoot a young boy in a city recreation center because he had ignored the basketball sign-in sheet. This jarring, emotional, and deeply unsettling story was published July 6 at The Atlantic, in the section reserved for ideas, under the bold, attention-grabbing headline, 'How I Became a Police Abolitionist.'"

Oh good grief.

No one on the planet believes that story.

A police officer shot someone for ignoring a basketball sign-in sheet?

That is absolutely insulting to publish because by doing so, The Atlantic said that every one of its readers is an idiot.

Which may be true, but the story is not.

The Federalist went through deep pains and detail to debunk this wickedly inane tale.


  1. True story: I bought a parakeet in high school because I was so jazzed by the cockatoo Fred in Berretta.

    1. If you bought a parakeet, how could you keep your eye on the sparrow?

  2. Item 16: Cry Wolf - "It's agreed then, The Boy was gotten by a wolf. Right?"

  3. Item 10-
    Billy: I'm scared, Poncho.
    Poncho: Bullsh##! You ain't afraid of no man!
    Billy: There's something out there waiting for us, and it ain't no man....We're all gonna die.

    A related story from whatfinger (Man, I love that site)
    Hydroxy works, masks don't, and we all gotta hide from the bear.

    It falls on deaf ears when I try to explain this isn't the break glass in case of emergency terror the media and politicians make it out to be.
    Ex: Here in Iowa, they had a total of 36 thousand and change total positives, 25k recoveries, 200 or so hospitalized and 750 some deaths.
    So roughly 1% tested positive and 4% of those died. Not terribly huge numbers by any means. This also makes the overall number of active sick to worry about even smaller, only 10k or so and of those only 200 are sick enough to be in the hospital.
    As near as I can tell, these ratios look consistant around the nation.

    1. Oregon's got a $1000 fine if you don't wear a mask in public places. Kate has her black shirted Karens going around checking. Local Wal-mart was hit by a raid and now has one way in and one way out with barricades. If you had to exit the store quickly -you can't the barricades are bolted down. Reminds me of a sheep dip.

    2. It it's a bona fide crisis (fire, shooter, etc.) try going out the back door. The merchandise has to get in the store somehow, there should be a door.

  4. Item 1 I propose the name Deep State Swampdwellers. This gets rid of the Washington name and accurately describes many of those who go to the games.

    Item 13: you mean "Citizens Ayrest, Citizens Ayrest."

    1. Washington Swamp is a lot shorter and more to the point. Or maybe Washington DS Swamp? DS=Deep State. Their new mascot could be the Swamp Thing from the movie.

    2. I think that the Washington Bureaucrats has a nice rhythm.

    3. How 'bout the Washington Communists? Has a nice ring, doesn't it? - Gary B

    4. How about naming the team after characteristics of the team's owner?

      I think "Washington Nancy-Boys" or "Washington Pajama-Boys" would be appropriate...

    5. Survived 18 summers in D.C. and two tours in Vietnam; all without air conditioning. In D.C., we had a whole house fan in a window; blowing out to draw air in through open windows. Not as cool as AC; but, effective. Oh, and my ancestors lived in the same area since the early 1800's (about 1804).

  5. And as to 13, I mean that with the utmost love and respect for Jim Nabors, a talent whose like is rarely seen.

  6. 9. A by product of a black studies major? Imagine if blacks could claim half those attributes.

  7. Kayleigh!!

    1. Absolutely! I'll bet those "reporters" get sick to their stomachs before each briefing wondering if Kayleigh is going to hand them their asses. They can't even be shamed into doing their jobs. - Gary B

  8. Item 20: Chuck Woolery. Trump Effect

  9. 1: The big expose of Snyder turned into the big nothing.

    If there's a season, the redskins will take the field. I figured it was a stall.

    10: DeWidiot is begging for a recall. People are really getting sick of this petty harassment.

    1. There is no recall mechanism in Ohio. You can sue for misbehavior in office, however. DeWine is an idiot, and one court has already said his mask mandate is illegal, but it would be a real crap shoot to sue him on the basis of the stupidity he's pulled.

  10. 12 - must be nice to piss away $1.23 million

    17 - Schnatter was destroyed. Sadly. Glad to hear his voice again.

    19 - Derecka’s story was dreck. Could smell it 500
    Miles away.

  11. Congress sets policy by writing laws.

    Unless its raising tariff taxes! Unless its China!! Surber is a hypocrite he hates the Constitution.

    1. Actually, Congress passed a law that allows presidents to set tariffs.

      This is like the 13th similar comment from you today. Obviously you are obsessed. I don't know who I remind you of, but get help.

      God bless you.

    2. Much like a rabid dog, a religious fanatic, of the liberal persuasion, is beyond help - far, far beyond help. - Gary B

  12. Item 15. In my career in medical lab, I've worked closely with NICU (neonatal intensive care). I've always been impressed by how FEW they lose. Unless they're genetic wrecks, they just don't lose them.
    And then my granddaughter was born over three months premature. She spent those next three months in NICU, and today is a happy, healthy, rowdy six year old with NO deficits whatsoever. NICU nurses are absolute angels in scrubs.

  13. Item 3. Fox would have joined the "cancel culture" if they fired him, which may have been a worse look than keeping him on.
    Item 9. Are we to conclude that (competitive) black athletes are expressing whiteness?

  14. Item 1. Their basketball team used to be the Washington Bullets. I though that was awesome.

  15. Washington WIMPS and Dennis Rodman as Micheal! OH, Is Bruce Jenner pregnant?

  16. I think Kayleigh definitely spends most of her time on the Absurd tab having to deal with the absurd media.
