Highlights of the News


Donald John Trump is still our president.

ITEM 1: A reader wrote, "In the morning I will get up first, feed the wild quail in the front yard and make coffee to take back to my Personal Goddess.

"By then she will have the tablet open to your blog and I will enjoy her company as we sip coffee and she reads your thoughts.

"But I lay here awake now thinking about how Donald Trump did not lose the election nor have it stolen from him. The Presidency is not a prize to be won but an office to be elected to. It is not his. It is ours.

"The election was stolen from the 70 million plus voters who followed the ever changing rules, trying to do the right thing to the best of their ability.

"And the thieves did not just steal the office, in doing so they stole our present and future tax dollars. They stole the educations of every student in the education system from pre K through post grad.

"They stole our faith and trust in the government and in the system we trust to maintain the integrity of that massive government. They stole our hope for a safe and honest future.

"I hope they are caught and their wrongs are corrected.

"In my opinion, there is no punishment harsh enough for the people who seek to enslave us.

"They are not trying to steal the election from Donald Trump. They are trying to steal it from me.

"I am not happy with that."

No one is.

ITEM 2: The New York Post reported, "The assassination of Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was carried out by a highly trained hit squad of 62 people — pouncing in six vehicles after the local power supply was cut, according to local reports.

"The killers — who Iranian officials have insisted were sent by Israel — included a team of 50 giving logistical support to the dirty dozen who carried out the actual ambush Friday, sources told leading Iranian journalist Mohamad Ahwaze.

All involved had entered special training courses, as well as security and intelligence services abroad,' Ahwaze tweeted, as translated by ELINT News."

ITEM 3: The Department of Justice announced "senior law enforcement officials from the United States, El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras announced criminal charges in Central America against more than 700 members of transnational criminal organizations, primarily MS-13 and 18th Street gangs, which resulted from a one-week coordinated law enforcement action under Operation Regional Shield (ORS).

"ORS began in 2017 and is a Justice Department-led initiative to combat transnational organized crime that brings together gang prosecutors and investigators from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico and the United States.  Through quarterly meetings, this group has coordinated multi-country investigations and simultaneous takedowns throughout the region. 

"Authorities also announced the arrest of 36 individuals in El Salvador and Honduras involved in human smuggling networks that span Central America and the United States.  Among those arrested in Honduras, include one police commissioner, one police deputy inspector, and three law enforcement agents.  All arrestees were charged with human smuggling, money laundering and illegal association to commit a crime.  The charges were announced by U.S. Attorney General William P. Barr, Attorney General Raul Melara of El Salvador, Attorney General MarĂ­a Consuelo Porras Argueta of Guatemala, and the Attorney General of Honduras, Oscar Fernando Chinchilla, through the Public Ministry’s Press Office."

The key words are ORS began in 2017.

Democrats protect MS-13 as they do most gangs. Crime pays -- and pays off Democrats.

ITEM 4: CNBC reported, "Online sales on Black Friday are on track to reach a record high this year, as bargain hunters combed websites for deals and avoided stores during the corona virus pandemic, according to preliminary data from Adobe Analytics.

"As of late Friday, online sales were on pace to amount to between $8.9 billion and $9.6 billion, an increase of between 20% and 29% from last year, depending on how many shoppers make purchases late into the night. Nearly 42% of sales came from smartphones as of 4 p.m. ET, a 7% increase over last year."

CNBC also reported, "Traffic at stores on Black Friday fell by 52.1% compared with last year, as Americans by and large eschewed heading to malls and queuing up in lines for shopping online, according to preliminary data from Sensormatic Solutions.

"For the six key weeks of the holiday season this year, traffic in retail stores is expected to be down 22% to 25% year over year, an earlier forecast by Sensormatic Solutions said."

Retail is dead.

The whole nation is on a lockdown. Amazon is the prison commissary.

ITEM 5: Breitbart reported, "New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D) has put immense pressure on businesses with her abrupt lockdown order — forcing non-essential businesses to close and creating what has been dubbed modern breadlines —  with people waiting 2-4 hours to enter essential retailers, former GOP Senate candidate Elisa Martinez explained during an appearance on Breitbart News Saturday.

"Martinez, a former U.S. Senate candidate and Trump campaign surrogate, said that there has been a lot of downward pressure on the economy and people of New Mexico due to ridiculous mandates pushed by the governor, imposing some of the strictest lockdowns in the country. Martinez discussed the governor’s abrupt November 13 announcement, which put residents under another lockdown, closing businesses deemed nonessential."

Groceries are non-essential.

Democrats are achieving their goal of turning us into Venezuela.

Maybe charities in Red China can raise money to send us food.

I don't want anyone knocking toilet paper hoarders again.

ITEM 6: Just the News reported, "Whole Foods founder and CEO John Mackey argues that socialism is a failed system that impoverishes everything.

"Referring to the criticism of trickle down economics, Mackey said socialism means trickle up poverty.

"'We have to recognize that some of the progressive insights are important and they shouldn't go away, but we can't throw out capitalism and replace it with socialism, that will be a disaster,' he said during a discussion on Tuesday organized by the American Enterprise Institute.

"'Socialism has been tried 42 times in the last 100 years, and 42 failures, it doesn't work, it's the wrong way. We have to keep capitalism, I would argue, we need conscious capitalism.'"

Yo, Mackey, do you know the way to Santa Fe? How about moving there and running for governor?

ITEM 7: The Associated Press reported, "Biden’s win hides a dire warning for Democrats in rural U.S."

Odd.

I don't recall a previous story where winning the presidency hurt a party.

The press knows the election was rigged because the press participated in it.

ITEM 8: The Washington Examiner reported, "Facebook fact-checker issues correction to censoring of Candace Owens post after she threatens legal action."

The enemy just blinked.

Fasten your lawyers; it's going to be a bumpy night.

ITEM 9: Chris Donaldson reported, "If it's Sunday morning then Dr. Anthony Fauci is making the rounds on the news shows that serve as launching pads for the week's propaganda talking points

"This morning the career bureaucrat turned resistance rock star made his first stop on NBC where he engaged in fear-mongering with host Chuck Todd on the peacock's flagship Meet The Press program. 

"The perturbed Fauci was unhappy that Americans didn't comply with his calls to limit travel on Thanksgiving and to forsake the traditional family gatherings and the prophet of doom warned of a spike in COVID cases in the coming weeks. 

"In responding to Todd's softball questions, the anti-Trump celebrity doctor amped up his apocalyptic rhetoric by prognosticating that the nation is about to experience a "surge super-imposed" on the current surge that may or may not include seasonal flu infections. 

"Dr. Fauci also provided political cover for the ravenously authoritarian Democrat governors who already imposed severe restrictions on Thanksgiving to lock down their suffering citizens through Christmas as well."

Every day is Groundhog Day to Fauci.

Every day is Groundhog Day to Fauci.

Every day is Groundhog Day to Fauci.

ITEM 10: The New York Post reported, "A Kenyan man who had falsely been declared dead made an unexpected return to life Tuesday as he was lying on a table in a morgue about to be embalmed, according to reports.

"Peter Kigen, 32, shocked onlookers as he screamed when morticians sliced his leg open to start the embalming process hours after his family members were told he was dead, according to The Standard.

"Kigen had been taken to the hospital after collapsing with a stomach ailment. His brother said a nurse told him he had died long before he arrived at Kapkatet Hospital."

Lazarus nods.

ITEM 11: United Press International reported, "Archbishop Wilton Gregory will be the first Black American to hold the rank of cardinal in the Roman Catholic Church on Saturday, when he officially becomes a member of the College of Cardinals.

"Gregory is currently self-quarantining in Rome as he waits for the induction. The archbishop, known for his outspokenness on many issues challenging the church, Gregory said he was surprised about the promotion.

"He made welcoming diversity to the church, including members of the LGBTQ community, one of his keystone missions." 

He is the priesthood's Obama. He castigated President Trump for mean tweets but is cool with Biden, dismissing Biden's advocacy of abortion as a little dispute.

ITEM 12: The Department of Justice reported, "Self-christened campaign guru Ravneet (“Ravi”) Singh was re-sentenced in federal court today to one year in prison for conspiring with Mexican billionaire Susumo Azano to make almost $600,000 in illegal political contributions to candidates Bonnie Dumanis and Bob Filner in the 2012 San Diego mayoral campaign in an effort to buy 'a friend in the Mayor’s office.'

"U.S. District Judge Michael M. Anello also ordered Singh to pay a $10,000 fine. Singh’s re-sentencing brings to a successful end this long-running investigation into corruption in local San Diego politics."

That friend -- Mayor Filner -- was a serial sexual harasser but as a Democrat, he reached a plea bargain and 3 months of home confinement.

ITEM 13Just the News reported, "Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear has filed an emergency appeal seeking to permit him to close religious schools throughout the state following an earlier ruling dictating that he lacks the authority to do so. 

"Beshear, a Democrat, last week ordered all schools within Kentucky to close down in the hopes that doing so would curb the state’s recent spike in positive covid 19 tests.

"Following that order, however, U.S. District Judge Gregory Van Tatenhove ruled that Beshear lacked the authority under the First Amendment to shutter private and religious schools. 'In an effort to do the right thing to fight the virus, the Governor cannot do the wrong thing by infringing protected values,' Tatenhove said."

The biggest death from covid 19 is the Constitution's.

ITEM 14The New York Post reported, "The record surge in corona virus cases across the US is likely far worse, with an estimated eight infections unreported for every one infection counted, according to a government report — which would put the true tally closer to 100 million."

Let's see, fewer than 300,000 deaths out of 100 million infected means the survival rate is 99.7%.

End the lockdown with an executive order, Mister President.

ITEM 15: The Department of Justice announced "Cognosante, LLC has agreed to pay the United States $18,987,789 to resolve allegations that it violated the False Claims Act by using unqualified labor and overcharging the United States for services provided to government agencies under two General Services Administration (GSA)) contracts, the Justice Department announced today.  Cognosante, which is headquartered in Falls Church, Virginia, provides health care and IT services and solutions to federal agencies.

"GSA’s Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) contracts allow the federal government to leverage its buying power to achieve favorable pricing.  Under MAS contracts, contractors negotiate with GSA to set maximum prices for goods and services subsequently ordered by agencies across the federal government.  These contracts provide streamlined access to the federal marketplace.

"The settlement resolves allegations that Cognosante overcharged the United States for services performed under two GSA MAS contracts, including by providing false information concerning Cognosante’s commercial discounting practices during contract negotiations.  It also resolves allegations that Cognosante charged the United States for labor that failed to meet the qualifications in one of the contracts."

$19 million.

About enough to run the federal government for 3 seconds.

ITEM 16: The Washington Examiner reported, "The FBI, apparently and finally eyeing voter fraud claims, has requested the files from an independent investigation of people who allegedly voted in several states.

"The attorney conducting a Voter Integrity Project investigation for the conservative Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society that has called into question hundreds of thousands of potentially problem ballots said the FBI has asked for his key files."

No excitement without an indictment.

These are the people who sat on Hunter Biden's laptop for a year.

ITEM 17: The Daily Caller reported, "Democratic Colorado Gov. Jared Polis and his partner both tested positive for covid 19 and say they will continue to isolate in their home."

So his lockdowns, his masks, and his social distancing all FAILED.

    2. Yes, they were given copies. So far the courts seem to be worrying about throwing out the honest votes with the illegal ones since these Democratic states have set it up for no audit trail or destroyed evidence. But for Covid, all must suffer to protect those of us like me who is 75. Makes no sens!

    3. amr, see my comments last week about spoliation and spoliation laws. Too many people have been conditioned that they could flout them with impunity - just need to enforce them this time.

    5. they were going to wipe the GA voting machines, then it was stayed, then not stayed. Then Lin Wood reminded them that in court spoilage - i.e. destruction of evidence - is as good as guilt. Now stayed again. You don't destroy evidence [spoilage] unless you are guilty, in law.

  5. Talking with Maria Bartaroma yesterday, the President was defiant yet disheartened about the election. He wasn't sure if SCOTUS will take up the case. Still praying but when Newsmax and Laura Ingraham tell him to concede, its getting hard. Done with Ingraham.
    Meanwhile, Biden fractures his ankle after slipping in a pool of his own urine. They say that he'll be wearing a boot. That's what Harris wants to give him. The Boot!

    1. Don't get down. Neither Newsmax, nor Laura, have any influence on the election, nor the POTUS.

      The POTUS is only disheartened at the cabal of elitist fraudsters, because they allow their hubris to govern their actions. When one is getting ready to win a major battle, the victor has the choice to destroy his enemy, or let them surrender. Trump is so far choosing the second option, which includes the courts. If he is forced to, he WILL destroy them, as he has the evidence, and the means to. That will cause civil unrest, like none of us have seen in our lifetime. He'd rather not do that. Hence, his appearance is frustration, not disheartened.

    2. Many Thanks, FLOlsen!! Keeping hope alive. These days, both Mr. Surber and Citizen Free Press are my sole sources of news. My wife frets over every item sent to her from her liberal friends (the ones that she has left as she has cut ties with several). When she says that the source is either NYT or WAPO, I just laugh at her.

    2. The USA has done many seemingly impossible things, met tremendous challenges head-on, etc. and it could be that this moment in its history is the challenge to beat all other challenges. Can the USA save the USA? Can you institute a federal voting system where one state can absolutely TRUST the results from neighboring states? Can you take on and defeat the loathesome enemies within? It's now or never, I fear.

  13. Meanwhile, back in Venezuela where it all started...

    BBC: "The electoral council in Venezuela says a fire in its main warehouse near the capital, Caracas, has destroyed most of the voting machines held there. Almost 50,000 voting machines and 582 computers used in the country's elections went up in flames, electoral council chief Tibisay Lucena said. She did not say if parliamentary elections due later this year could be affected by the loss of the machines. She also asked prosecutors to investigate the cause of the fire.".......

    The cause of the fire is Socialism, lady. Just like it causes destruction of evidence here. It buys off crooked officials, it burns down cities and it steals elections. And eventually puts take-out windows on dumpsters.

    On the other hand, maybe some Venezuelan patriots set the fires because they were tired of voting on Chavez' crooked voting machines.

    We know how they feel.

  18. 1. The Democratic Party Is, Has Been, and Always Will Be, the Party of Slavery.

    The only thing that changes is who they think they'll enslave.

    2. The Iranians might want to learn about the Raid On Entebbe.

    Choose your friends wisely and enemies wiserly...or something.

    4. Somebody should investigate possible collusion between the beneficiaries of the house arrest of most the nation and the politicians implementing it.

    Think some money might be changing hands?

    7. The 1st Amendment does not provide immunity from other laws, like sedition.

    If the Democratic Party Propagandists of the Press had walking orders from and coordinated with the seditionists, they're guilty, too.

  19. #1, does it bother anyone else that not a single democrat cares enough about this country to even ask whether the vote was stolen? I guess the end justifies the means, no matter what. How about the fact that no one in the FBI raised a red flag and no one in the IRS did either.
