Highlights of the News


Donald John Trump is still our president.

ITEM 1: The Daily Mail reported, "Members of Donald Trump's inner circle are 'quaking in their boots' after learning Kellyanne Conway sealed a multi-million dollar deal to write a blockbuster memoir about her time in the White House, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal.

"The outgoing President's once-closest advisor will deliver the most 'unvarnished' account to date of Trump's four tumultuous years in power, according to a well-placed insider.

"Details are being kept under wraps but the deal is expected to net Conway the biggest advance ever for a Trump tell-all, dwarfing the $2 million paid to former national security adviser John Bolton."

The Gospel According to Judas.

Where are the insider books critical of Obama's decision to bomb Libya, to cover up Benghazi, to give guns to Mexican druglords, to spy on journalists, to spy on Donald Trump, to cover up Hillary's sale of state secrets to foreign governments, and to give a big donor $535 million in the Solyndra scandal.

Democrats do not need non-disclosure agreements.

They have Arkancide.

ITEM 2: Pennsylvania attorney Zachary Greenberg tweeted, "To the American Bar Association: A federal court had finally stated what First Amendment lawyers have been saying all along: Model Rule 8.4(g) is an egregious infringement on attorney free speech rights. 

"Please refrain from asking states to impose this unconstitutional rule on their attorneys."

He was the plaintiff in the case.

Judge Chad F. Kenney ruled, "The irony cannot be missed that attorneys, those who are most educated and encouraged to engage in dialogues about our freedoms, are the very ones who are forced to limit their words to those that do not ‘manifest bias or prejudice.'"

President Trump appointed Judge Kenney.

ITEM 3: Rumble reported on Wednesday Hunter Biden's lawyers admitted the FBI is investigating his Access-Dad-For-Cash scheme.

James Rosen tweeted this on October 29.

The news media reports only what Democrats allow to be reported. That the Democrats are allowing CNN to report this means this is Kabuki Theater designed to exonerate him.

ITEM 4: House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy tweeted a group photo of him and every Republican congressman who lost in the blue wave on November 3rd.


Winning.

Without cheating.

ITEM 5: CNBC reported, "17 states whose elections were won by President Donald Trump told the Supreme Court on Wednesday that they support Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s bid to file a lawsuit that could effectively reverse President-elect Joe Biden’s projected Electoral College victory.

"The filing backing Paxton by those states came a day after he asked the Supreme Court for permission to sue Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, all of which Biden won, over their voting processes.

"Later Wednesday, Trump filed a motion to intervene in the case in his personal capacity as a presidential candidate. The Supreme Court has yet to rule on Paxton’s request.

"The states supporting the suit, all of which have Republican attorneys general, are Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, and West Virginia."

Later, Arizona filed, which means this lawsuit is not just Trump states pissed with the outcome. This is about honest elections.

We will see if we have a constitutional republic or are now a fascist state.

Meanwhile, The Hill reported, "President Trump has asked Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) to present a case from his state's attorney general seeking to invalidate the election results of several key battleground states before the Supreme Court should it decide to hear the suit, The New York Times reported Wednesday."

Cruz said yes.

The Cruz 2024 campaign is off to a good start.

ITEM 6: OAN reported, "A Michigan Democrat official made threats against supporters of President Trump and appeared to call for the political persecution of her opponents.

"Michigan State Congresswoman Cynthia Johnson seemed to call on radical left militants to be prepared to attack Republican voters.

"'So this is just a warning for you Trumpers,' Rep. Johnson (D-Mich.) said. 'Be careful, walk lightly. Enough of the shenanigans.'"

The Michigan House speaker and its incoming speaker denounced her in a statement. They stripped her of her committee seats. 

They are Republicans. Democrats will not disown her. Why should they? She speaks for them. They are deadly serious.

ITEM 7: Just the News reported, "A new poll finds that only about half of Americans are all in for taking a covid 19 shot once a vaccine is approved.

"In the survey, 47% said said they would get a vaccine, 26% said no and 27% said they weren't sure.

"The poll, conducted by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, found that 55% of males would get a vaccine, while 40% of women agreed. 

"The findings varied widely by age: 51% of those 45 to 59 would take it, while just 36% of those under 45 said they planned to take a vaccine. 63% said they either wouldn't take it or weren't sure if they would.

"Race also played a factor: Just 24% of blacks and 34% of Hispanics said they'd take a vaccine, while 53% of whites would do so."

76% of black people oppose the vaccine.

60% of women do.

In solidarity with my black brothers and sisters, I am going to refuse this obviously racist and misogynist vaccine. 


ITEM 8: Fox reported, "Eric Swalwell's reported entanglement with Chinese spy ignored by CNN, broadcast networks.

"After years of promoting the Russia probe, the media largely ignored unflattering headlines about the Democrat lawmaker."

He sits on the intelligence committee.

CNN and the rest sit on real news.

ITEM 9: The Federal Trade Commission announced it "sued Facebook, alleging that the company is illegally maintaining its personal social networking monopoly through a years-long course of anticompetitive conduct. Following a lengthy investigation in cooperation with a coalition of attorneys general of 46 states, the District of Columbia, and Guam, the complaint alleges that Facebook has engaged in a systematic strategy — including its 2012 acquisition of up-and-coming rival Instagram, its 2014 acquisition of the mobile messaging app WhatsApp, and the imposition of anticompetitive conditions on software developers — to eliminate threats to its monopoly. This course of conduct harms competition, leaves consumers with few choices for personal social networking, and deprives advertisers of the benefits of competition.

"The FTC is seeking a permanent injunction in federal court that could, among other things: require divestitures of assets, including Instagram and WhatsApp; prohibit Facebook from imposing anticompetitive conditions on software developers; and require Facebook to seek prior notice and approval for future mergers and acquisitions."

The stakes just raised for Fascistbook.

ITEM 10: The New York Post reported, "Carjacker steals NYPD detective’s car in Manhattan"

Car 54, where are you? just got real.

ITEM 11: The Hill reported, "Pepperidge Farm's parent company Campbell Soup warned that cookies could be short in supply this holiday season due to "supply constraints" in its cookie division.

"The supply concerns stem from a combination of labor shortages due to COVID-19 and high demands as people remain at home, surging the cookie-sector challenge, Campbell's Chief Executive Officer Mark Clouse said on an earnings call Wednesday, Bloomberg reported.

"Campbell has also seen heavier demands in its other line of grocery store products, including Goldfish crackers and its soup production, which saw higher demands during the pandemic.

"The company said one of the obstacles with supplying its cookie demand is the production of cookie shapes like its Bordeaux or Linzer variants. The company doesn't outsource to third-party manufacturers to produce them, proving difficult to maintain supply amid a limited workforce due to COVID-19."

Thank goodness that as cartoon characters, the Keebler elves are immune to covid 19.

ITEM 12: Zero Hedge reported, "The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center won't require its health care employees to take the upcoming COVID-19 vaccine, which the medical provider expects to begin offering as soon as this month, according to PennLive.

"The reason are several-fold, according to UPMC medical director of infection prevention and epidemiology, Dr. Graham Snyder. For starters, general uncertainty over the vaccine. And while the $21 billion nonprofit organization (which employs 89,000 people) has a mandatory flu vaccination policy, it's 'based on decades of experience with the influenza vaccine,' according to Snyder."

Doctors don't have to vaccinate.

White Coat Privilege.

ITEM 13: Reuters reported, "Allies of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro won 91% of the legislature’s seats following a vote on Sunday that was boycotted by the opposition and disavowed by the United States and the European Union.

"Opposition leaders and most Western nations said the election was stacked in favor of Maduro, who has been widely criticized for his human rights record and for undermining democracy to stay in power.

"Candidates from the ruling Socialist Party and allied parties took 253 of 277 seats in the new parliament, according to figures posted on the National Electoral Council’s website on Wednesday."

Presenting your 2022 midterm elections if the Supreme Court fails to stop the steal.

ITEM 14: Ezra Levant reported, "Justin Trudeau invited China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) to send its troops for cold weather training at CFB Petawawa in Ontario — and Trudeau raged at the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) for cancelling the training after China kidnapped Canadian citizens Michael Spavor and Michael Kovrig.

"This is only one of many bombshell revelations in The China Files, a 34-page access to information document released by the Trudeau government to Rebel News."

Trudeau is so Maoist he could be the next Democrat secretary of state.

ITEM 15KSTP reported, "A Minnesota baby, born in June after just 21 weeks in the womb, is home for the holidays. Richard Hutchinson was discharged from the Mother Baby Center at Children’s Minnesota on Friday, defying the odds.

"'They didn’t really think he was going to make it and he's coming home now,' said Beth Hutchinson.

"She and her husband Rick Hutchinson went to the hospital in June when she unexpectedly went into labor. Richard came into the world on June 5th, weighing just more than a pound."

Medical advancements and improvements in science have undercut the argument in Roe v. Wade that a baby in the womb is just a clump of cells.

End it.

Abort abortion.

ITEM 16: The Arizona Republic reported, "Last election challenge pending in Arizona courts thrown out by federal judge in blistering ruling."

The story never mentioned Obama appointed the judge.

Ho hum.

ITEM 17: CNN reported, "Chinese state-owned companies are starting to default on their debts. It's a problem that could ripple through the country's financial system, threatening to slam the brakes on the nation's economy and hobble the global recovery from the pandemic.

"State firms defaulted on a record 40 billion yuan ($6.1 billion) worth of bonds between January and October, according to Fitch Ratings. That's about as much as the last two years combined.

"The problem has only gotten worse in recent weeks. A slew of major companies — including BMW's Chinese partner Brilliance Auto Group, top smartphone chip maker Tsinghua Unigroup, and Yongcheng Coal and Electricity — declared bankruptcy or defaulted on their loans last month, sending shock waves through the nation's debt market. Bond prices have plummeted and interest rates have spiked, and the turmoil has even spilled over into the stock market, where shares of state-owned firms have been sinking.

"It's alarming on a couple of fronts. First of all, the close relationships between these companies and local Chinese governments typically make them safe bets in times of trouble. If investors are worried that the state is no longer willing to support them, they suddenly become much riskier propositions."

When Red China collapses, it will take its accomplices down with it.

ITEM 18: Bloomberg Green reported, "The Trump administration is racing to sell oil drilling rights in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge before Joe Biden takes office so the president-elect can’t revoke the contracts.

"The Interior Department announced Thursday it will hold the auction on Jan. 6 -- an accelerated timetable meant to ensure the oil and gas leases are formally issued before Biden is sworn in Jan. 20. Biden has vowed to permanently protect the refuge, but formal leases are contracts with the federal government and are difficult to cancel."

Presidential terms are for 1,461 days. No more. No less.

Besides, who said Biden will be sworn in?

The same people who said he was up by 17 in Wisconsin?

ITEM 19: The New York Post reported, "More than two dozen House Republicans have signed onto a letter sent Wednesday urging that President Trump direct Attorney General William Barr to appoint a special counsel to probe 2020 election irregularities.

"The letter, obtained by The Post, was originally written and sent last Thursday by Rep. Lance Gooden (R-Texas), two days after the nation’s top law enforcement agent said the Justice Department had not uncovered evidence of widespread voter fraud that would alter the outcome of the presidential race.

"Gooden opted to resend the letter this week after dozens of GOP lawmakers agreed to add their names to it, including Reps. Andy Biggs of Arizona, Louie Gohmert of Texas, Thomas Massie of Kentucky and Mo Brooks of Alabama."

The Republican Party is not going to take it anymore.

    3. The troll takes the bait again. It cannot help itself.

      "If we clean things up [like we did in Florida for the 2020 election] we won't need any corrupt courts in 2024 you ignorant parrot."

      You just hate that I use your words against you, to show how contradictory they are to your monumentally stupid "Trump for 2024!" talking point. A monumentally stupid talking point, that is right out of CNN. In order for this to work, your cawing points of "courts are corrupt! and "system is corrupt!" have to just magically go away. Because, regardless of your naïve statement of "we won't need any corrupt courts in 2024", you somehow miss the fact that the courts would be needed to clean up the voter fraud. Do you think dumbocrats will just lay down and let all of the fraud they installed get taken out without a fight? Especially after the fraud helped to get rid of their #1 enemy Trump, and installed the brain dead, corrupt compromised China Doll? And, I haven't even asked about China's influence on all the politicians in the "system is corrupt!" who will also fight this "reform" you think can be magically fixed, like it was in Florida! Yeah! That's the ticket! SMH at the pure idiocy.

      Here's a clue for you jakee. It took two solid and conservative GOPers who WERE motivated due to the fact that they just squeaked by to beat their opponents in the 2016 Florida election, when their internal polls showed they would win big. Add to that, a GOP dominated legislature, a conservative dominated SCOFL, and there were the ingredients to clean up Broward county. It's telling, that I have to explain how Florida was actually cleaned up, yet you keep posting your "we clean things up like in Florida" without including how the clean up happened. And further, how it relates to what has to happen in the swing states, where the massive, in-our faces fraud took place.

      In other words, you have not explained how, for example, Kemp, a RINO, who is obviously compromised, will actually clean up what he helped create. With a legislation that doesn't seem to want to make the right decision with the massive in-our faces voter fraud. And, that is just Georgia. There's Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Arizona, and Nevada. All equal or worse than Georgia's situation. And there is most likely more that we have not found out yet.

      So, before you call someone ignorant, without providing any facts to back up YOUR opinion, you should look into the mirror. You won't like the troll staring back.

    4. continuing:

      "I've got news for you, doofus, Trump is fighting NOW to win elections in the future"

      LOL! I posted that two days ago doofus. See here:

      https://donsurber.blogspot.com/2020/12/global-fascism-in-vaccine.html?showComment=1607461904468#c6544985810103025521

      So, not only are you a troll who posts unbacked opinions, but you steal from me to use in "explaining" the magic behind your opinions. You simply can't explain how Trump, who will not be POTUS, and thus does not have the tools he possess NOW, will be able to lead this clean up. Not to mention how the cabal who ran this steal, will even let Trump run free. I keep telling you, that they have been trying to get him for over 4 years. They just attempted to blatantly steal an election right in our faces, to get rid of him. What makes you think they will just let him go? Especially when they can easily use an EO to declare Trump a national security threat, and detain him, similar to what they did to neutralize General Flynn. They have shown they have no respect for the law, so those are just extensions of what they have already done. Unlike you, Trump fully understands this.

      You keep saying the US is Venezuela. If that is true, how the flux do we as a country not repeat what is NOW happening down there, where Maduro is strengthening his grip on power, via the fraud that was installed before him by Chavez. They too, have "courts are corrupt!" and "system is corrupt!" which perpetuated the fraud. That WILL happen here, if Trump concedes, because both of those will still be there, despite your belief in pixie dust and unicorns.

      Then, you bring up John Boyd's Maneuver Warfare to describe Trump and "territory he's already moved on from." You have no clue what territory Trump has moved on to, because I've tried to tell you, but you refuse to accept it. Hell, you think Trump is too stupid to set up the sting. That he was caught off guard by the fraud. And further, that he would allow himself to loose because of "courts are corrupt!" and "system is corrupt!", without any backup plan. If that is how John Boyd fights and maneuvers, where he cannot out maneuver "courts are corrupt!" and "system is corrupt!", then I don't want his loser tactics. And certainly, Trump would not either. Here's a clue for you, since you still seem unable to buy one. If you are trying to make Trump look smart by pointing out some author on whatever tactics, you can't make that point, and then predict Trump will lose anyway. Because of "courts are corrupt!" and "system is corrupt!" It's contradictory. SMH

      Fortunately for those of us who know better, Trump isn't as monumentally stupid as you depict him to be. And he doesn't need a loser like John Boyd. He planned this this sting. Not to lose, as you keep insisting will happen. But to win. And he will win. Despite your investment in his loosing. And if you refuse to accept that, well, it is YOUR fault you are too stupid to understand what is going on around you, and that you, as you state: "are fighting over territory he's already moved on from."

      The alternative isn't better. You are a troll sent here to gaslight us. As Schlongy posted, you and your sock puppets are gassholes.

      Neither shine a positive light on you, or your so-called intellect. But, everyone knows what trolls are. You did say you were a pilot, who is required to think ahead. If true, based on your posts, I would not voluntarily go on the plane you planned the flight for.

    12 : Thank goodness that as cartoon characters, the Keebler elves are immune to covid 19.

    Good one.

    13: Who says Saddam Hussein is dead. In Latin America, this sort of thing ends with El Presidente's last words, "The peons are revolting".

    14: Trudeau is so Maoist he could be the next Democrat secretary of state.

    Bet he thinks power comes out of the barrel of a gun doesn't apply to him.

    18: who said Biden will be sworn in?

    Exactly.

  17. Yet another move that shows Trump will serve his second term:

    "Pentagon plans to cut most of its support to CIA's counterterrorism missions"

    from:

    https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/pentagon-plans-cut-support-cias-counterterrorism-missions/story?id=74641591

    Now, I wonder why the military is withdrawing its support for the CIA? Would it be because they have aided foreign powers in the stealing of the 2020 election?

  20. Item 5: Cruz is not a natural born citizen. Yeah, I know, it didn't stop Obama either.

    If Trump is alive and well he will be the nominee in 2024 any way so it's moot.

    1. Come on, Jake, put some moxie into these posts. You're writing as if you're already conceding the election to DJT!

      What are the sly, subtle and venomous insults that have certified you as the new and improved Maureen O'Dowd of the 21st Century?

      Where has the love gone, dear?

      My goodness, what will Hunter Biden think if he reads this watered down swill at the same time he's pondering your resume, which just arrived in his office?

    2. Bwahahahaha! Bravo Don Reed! You posted more in your short post than I.

      I realize you are aware of this Don, but still it has to be posted. jakee is a troll. He keeps proving it with posts full of contradictions, his juvenile name calling, and his non replies to anyone who challenges him. Sort of reminds me of what the brain dead, corrupt compromised, China doll, did when he was challenged in his younger days.

    4. One trolls the troll. His lack of a sense of humor, like the inevitability of mathematical conclusions referred to (below), guarantees his doom.

      And he serves a valuable service, to me at any rate. Just as one must play golf twice a week to retain one's skills (however meager they might be, as I personally found out), one's mental knives need sharpening, constantly.

      Jake The Grindstone serves the purpose, most admirably.

  23. Election Day is past.
    Now we find out about Swalwell.
    Hunter Biden's tax problems become known.
    And Biden's brother is under investigation, too.

    The Biden stuff being made public now seems to be a way to force gropey Joe to the curb so CommieLa can assume power.

    "Democrats do not need non-disclosure agreements.

    "They have Arkancide."

    Anyone seen Doug Band lately?

    (ex.-Bill Clinton accomplice, Don Surber story, 12/04/20.)

    Item #11: "... surging the cookie-sector challenge..."

    !!!!!!!!!!!!

    I can just hear some fidgety, fatuous twerp on CNBC slinging that one.

    Almost as good as this month's HUH? Award, written by a sportswriter.

    I paraphrase:

    "Elmer Fudd, Jr. is firmly entrenched in the depth chart as the team's fourth wide receiver."

    Entrenched?! Players come and go from football teams like flies in the horse stalls.

    Item #17: " 'Chinese state-owned companies are starting to default on their debts...

    " 'State firms defaulted on a record 40 billion yuan ($6.1 billion) worth of bonds between January and October... about as much as the last two years combined.

    "... 'major companies — including BMW's Chinese partner Brilliance Auto Group, top smartphone chip maker Tsinghua Unigroup, and Yongcheng Coal and Electricity — declared bankruptcy or defaulted on their loans last month, sending shock waves through the nation's debt market. Bond prices have plummeted and interest rates have spiked... [in] the stock market, where shares of state-owned firms have been sinking.' "

    (We pause to ponder the virtual impossibility of the existence of a Communist stock market.)

    Anyone remember --- ? --- what the insane Walter Wriston (1919-2005, one-time Citibank CEO), had said in the 1970s (paraphrase):

    "Companies fail, but governments [in this respect, South American governments, the sheer-rock Gibraltar of global finance!] never go broke."

    NEVER go broke.

    I had a first hand glimpse of this madness when I worked at a now defunct Japanese bank in the early 1990s.

    I recall fondly one wise and remarkably honest American executive with the bank, shoved into the hastily created "work-out" department (inconceivable in 1989!):

    "They don't even KNOW who they've lent money to!"

    (My emphasis. Spoken softly, which somehow made the statement sound even more dire than one would imagine. This involved the collective $10 billion dollars lost "investing" in American real estate in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles, most of which was later dumped at OMG! fire sale prices. The bank that had bought Rockefeller Center one morning simply left the keys on the receptionist desk and split.)

    Poor darling Martha. She was the non-Japanese donkey (well, she certainly was treated like one) in charge of keeping track of the bonds that were hatched as all of the South American loans to "governments" went belly up.

    I think we were being paid back at the rate of $3/per $1 billion originally loaned out to the Spanish Down Under sharks. That original money, I strongly suspect, spent all of ten minutes in an electronic account in Buenos Aires and then was lobbed by the dapper bank robbers into their individual private Swiss bank accounts.

    The finally irreversible bankruptcies have already started with the equally insane Communists in China, because years ago, when your boss ordered you to lend $100 million to a fatally dying company, you either made that loan, or ended up in the Apple Cell Phone factory/concentration camp.

    (A nice addendum to the Soviets arresting their top scientists during WWII and then forcing them to work in identical camps designing new planes and tanks.)

    Then the Wet Noodles spent five or six years trying to hide the lost money by manipulating the books (keeping double-triple-quadruple sets, etc.).

    Watch for particular bad (to them, good to me) news in this respect December 21-23rd, 2020, the cherry on top of the gaseous, nauseating sundae that we'll all been forced to drink since February 2020.

    Oh, I forgot. Never mind. Hunter Xiden is going to bail us all out, with the change he found under his sofa pillows.

      Not so fast Don. Reed that is. Not our host.

      Anyway, XBiden and Chuck the Schmuck will bail out the college students with loans first. Then the rest of us.

      Nice post. Interesting times you experienced. The maddening world of finance. Where rules are only for the honest, and honest don't much exist.

      Eventually though, math will catch up.

    2. It sure will, no question about it. The interesting times were the result of falling off the high wire in 1984 and five years went by before things got straightened out. Wall Street was the last refuge, I was the scoundrel, and spent ten years watching the apes in suits swinging from the vines.

  25. 1. The Democratic Party Is, Has Been, and apparently always Will Be, the Party of Slavery. The currency of their realm is Power. The only religion is the State, their State. The only option is submission on their terms. Everything Inside Their State. Nothing Outside Their State. Nothing Against Their State.

    5. Once again the United States is divided between slave states and free.

    "...In my opinion, it will not cease, until a crisis shall have been reached, and passed. A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure, permanently half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved -- I do not expect the house to fall -- but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing or all the other.

    Either the opponents of slavery, will arrest the further spread of it, and place it where the public mind shall rest in the belief that it is in the course of ultimate extinction; or its advocates will push it forward, till it shall become alike lawful in all the States, old as well as new -- North as well as South...." [A. Lincoln, Springfield, Illinois statehouse, 16 June 1958]

    History may not repeat, but it sure does rhyme a lot.

    "Your terms are acceptable."

    19. This is why abandoning the Republican Party for a third party vanity project would be a big mistake. Between it's proven strength in the state legislatures, governorships, and the new young lions in Congress it's got a lot of potential. Maybe not the sharpest tool in the shed. So sharpen it. That's what primaries are for.
