Highlights of the News

Donald John Trump is still our president.

DC is still a bipartisan cesspool.

ITEM 1: Ten Republicans voted to impeach President Donald John Trump for holding a rally at the National Mall. 

The 10 are:

Rep. Liz Cheney-WY

Rep. Herrera Beutler-WA

Rep. Katko-NY

Rep. Kinzinger-IL

Rep. Upton-MI

Rep. Newhouse-WA

Rep. Meijer-MI

Rep. Gonzalez-OH

Rep. Rice-SC

Rep. Valadao-CA

I stopped calling them RINOs because they are the epitome of the what elected Republicans stand for. That they are out of synch with most Republicans matters not.

Primary the 10 and remember, Liz Meghan McCain Cheney is the no. 3 Republican in the House. That is the leadership Republicans seek.

ITEM 2: Marjorie Taylor Greene tweeted, "On January 21st, I’m filing Articles of Impeachment on President-elect Joe Biden.

"75 million Americans are fed up with inaction.

"It’s time to take a stand.

"I’m proud to be the voice of Republican voters who have been ignored."

Impeach his wife, too, for posing as a medical doctor when her degree is and Ed.D., which makes her an educrat.

ITEM 3: Red State reported, "On Monday the Washington Post ran a story that Cumulus Media issued a command raising concerns with the on-air talent broadcast by its radio division, Westwood One. Based allegedly on an internal memo that had been leaked, writer Paul Farhi explained the new standard was supposed to be addressing the content on the radio shows in its syndicate, declaring that no on-air personalities would be permitted to continue suggesting the election was fraudulent. Reprisals were promised."

There was just one thing wrong with the story.

The memo exists only in Fahri's head.

But he got a Drudge link and that is all that matters in journalism these days.

ITEM 4: Mitch McConnell apparently is dismayed that he won't get a second impeachment trial.

Via Red State, McConnell said, "“Given the rules, procedures, and Senate precedents that govern presidential impeachment trials, there is simply no chance that a fair or serious trial could conclude before President-elect Biden is sworn in next week.

“Even if the Senate process were to begin this week and move promptly, no final verdict would be reached until after President Trump had left office. This is not a decision I am making; it is a fact.

"The President-elect himself stated last week that his inauguration on January 20 is ‘quickest’ path” for any change in the occupant of the presidency."

Under Senate rules, he would need unanimous consent to bring the Senate back in session. (They are taking a planned vacation.) Cruz and a few others would laugh in his face if he tried this.

A post-presidential impeachment trial is still possible because no one in D.C. follows the Constitution anymore.

ITEM 5: The ABC affiliate in San Antonio reported, "Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton today announced the arrest of Rachel Rodriguez for election fraud, illegal voting, unlawfully assisting people voting by mail, and unlawfully possessing an official ballot. Each charge constitutes a felony under the Texas Election Code.

"Rodriguez was exposed in a Project Veritas video last fall while she engaged in vote harvesting leading up to the 2020 election. The Election Fraud Division of the Office of the Attorney General reviewed dozens of hours of unedited, raw footage, which led to this arrest.

"Rodriguez acknowledged on video that what she was doing is illegal and that she could go to jail for it. If convicted, Rodriguez could face up to 20 years in prison."

The Steal was not limited to the 6 states stolen. They tried and failed in Texas and elsewhere.

That was why Fox would not call Ohio or Texas when President Trump was well ahead because Fox knew Democrats were stuffing ballot boxes in those states too.

ITEM 6: The National File reported, "The CEO of confirmed reports that had been circulating on Wednesday that President Donald Trump was browbeaten out of creating account on free speech social platforms Gab and Parler following his Twitter ban by son-in-law Jared Kushner and social media director Dan Scavino.

"Torba initially reported that he was in contact with the President’s team following last week’s Twitter and Facebook purge, but the President has still not appeared on Gab or now-defunct alt-tech app Parler.

"On Wednesday, reports circulated from CNN and Bloomberg that Kushner and Scavino joined forces to desperately talk the President out of establishing a presence on alt tech."

Gab meanwhile downloaded and posted all of Donald Trump's tweets over the years.

International salvage laws may allow this Gab grab.

But Twitter v. Gab would be an awesome court case.

ITEM 7: The New York Times reported, "Pelosi Pressed Pentagon on Safeguards to Prevent Trump From Ordering Military Action."

Just who does the Orange Man think he is? Commander in chief?

Buried in this story was a nugget uncovered by Flag and Cross.

The story said, "But some Defense Department officials have privately expressed anger that political leaders seemed to be trying to get the Pentagon to do the work of Congress and Cabinet secretaries, who have legal options to remove a president.

"Mr. Trump, they noted, is still the commander in chief, and unless he is removed, the military is bound to follow his lawful orders. While military officials can refuse to carry out orders they view as illegal, they cannot proactively remove the president from the chain of command. That would be a military coup, these officials said."

If true (this is a New York Times report after all) then Nancy is the one breaking the law.

ITEM 8: Just the News reported, "Acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen said in a video statement on Wednesday that efforts are being made to hold accountable those involved in perpetrating the breach of the Capitol building last week, and that any disruption of the upcoming presidential inauguration will not be tolerated."

Unlike 4 years ago when Democrats rioted in the streets while President Trump gave his inauguration speech.

ITEM 9Republican Senator Kevin Cramer of North Dakota went on Shepard Smith's CNBC show. Smith demanded to know if Cramer would vote to convict President Trump in an impeachment trial.

Cramer said, "I’ve read my Constitution many times, and in the country, you are afforded due process, I guess unless you are Donald Trump, and so I don’t default to guilty, because that is going against everything that the Constitution stands for and due process."

How odd that loudmouths like Smith who claim without evidence that President Trump is destroying our form of government are the ones who really ignore both precedent and the Constitution.

A post-presidential impeachment is wrong.


End of story.

ITEM 10: Summit News reported, "Conservative commentator and former baseball star Curt Schilling says that AIG canceled his insurance policy over his 'social media profile,' a new level of de-platforming not yet seen.

He tweeted, "We will be just fine, but wanted to let Americans know that @AIGinsurance canceled our insurance due to my 'Social Media profile.'

"The agent told us it was a decision made by and with their PR department in conjunction with management."

When Obama took office in 2009, he sent busloads of protesters to Connecticut to browbeat AIG officials into giving up their bonuses. That was a lesson learned. AIG is just obeying orders.

Corporate America is run by cowards.

ITEM 11: CNN reported, "Biden aides told congressional allies to expect Covid relief package with roughly $2 trillion price tag."

The story said, "The Biden team is taking a 'shoot for the moon' approach with the package, one lawmaker in close contact with them told CNN, though they added that the price tag could still change. The proposal will include sizable direct payments to American families, significant state and local funding -- including for coronavirus vaccine distribution and other emergency spending measures -- to help those struggling during the pandemic.

"Biden is set to announce the details of his plan in Wilmington, Delaware, Thursday evening."

This will bring inflation and the collapse of the dollar.

Which suits Biden's boss, Chairman Xi, just fine.

I don't know how to stop this runaway freight train. But I know it is coming. The question is when the devaluation comes, whose picture will be on the Billion Dollar Bill: Michelle or Barack?

ITEM 12: United Press International reported, "Lisa Montgomery, the only woman on federal death row, was executed by lethal injection early Wednesday for the 2004 killing of a pregnant woman.

"Montgomery, 52, was pronounced dead at 1:31 a.m. at the U.S. Penitentiary in Terre Haute, Ind., making her the first person executed by the federal government in 2021 and the 11th since the Trump administration resumed federal executions following a 17-year-hiatus last year."

Paragraph 3 quoted her lawyer, who said, "The craven bloodlust of a failed administration was on full display tonight. Everyone who participated in the execution of Lisa Montgomery should feel shame."

This woman killed a woman and tore her baby out of the womb. UPI mentioned that in Paragraph 7.

More executions, fewer murders. Remember, the recidivism rate among the executed is zero.

ITEM 13Reuters reported, "Johnson & Johnson is on track to roll out its single-shot coronavirus vaccine in March, and expects to have clear data on how effective it is by the end of this month or early February, the U.S. healthcare company’s chief scientific officer said.

"Dr. Paul Stoffels in an interview on Tuesday also said J&J expects to meet its stated target of delivering 1 billion doses of its vaccine by the end of this year as the company ramps up production.

"Stoffels said it was premature to say how many doses would be available in March, presuming the company receives emergency authorization from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration."

It will be interesting to see how the Biden administration botches this up.

ITEM 14: Zero Hedge reported, "Exemplifying just how bad things in New York have gotten - and just how willing many are to simply get out of Bill de Blasio's city - a condo on NYC's famed Billionaire's Row sold for a record 51% discount this week.

"The property is a 58th floor apartment in New York's One57 building, according to Bloomberg. The building was once viewed as a symbol of a luxury development boom in New York - a boom that ran face first into the Covid pandemic, as we have written about on Zero Hedge for the last year. 

"The condo in question is a 4,483 sq. foot parcel that was purchased in 2014 for $34 million. It was sold this week for $16.75 million. 

"The deal is the biggest loss by an owner at the building since it has been erected. In 2020, there were four other sales in the building in which the owner took a 40% loss, at least, according to Bloomberg."

No restaurants.

No nightlife.

No Broadway.

You may as well be in Poca, West Virginia.

The city that never sleeps is in a coma.

ITEM 15: The Daily Wire reported, "On Monday, the Supreme Court ruled for the state of Texas and against the Texas Democratic Party as they decided to leave in place a lower court ruling that rejected Democrats’ attempts to let all eligible voters in Texas vote by mail."

Too little, too late.

ITEM 16: Gab announced, "Gab’s Response To The ADL and CNN."

Apparently the ADL and CNN don't like Gab.

Gab said, "Gab has had regular contact with US federal law enforcement for years to ensure our platform is not used for unlawful purposes. Public safety is our top priority.

"The ADL should be calling for an investigation into Facebook, where the protests were actually organized. Gab is great for a lot of things, but it’s not a utility for organizing events. Facebook, on the other hand, has a dedicated Events feature and there were many Event pages organizing the Jan 6th protests on their platform and several massive Facebook Groups as well.

"Facebook has billions of users, up until last week our site only had about 1.5m users (although this is rapidly growing now by millions.) Facebook is also home to Facebook Messenger, which according to data is by far the largest distributor of child pornography on the internet. Funny how the ADL doesn’t seem to care about that."


I won't quote the whole thing but Gab CEO Andrew Torba is taking a Trumpian approach to critics, which makes sense. He markets his company as Twitter without the BS.

So far, so good.

ITEM 17: The Daily Caller reported, "Republican Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert walked around a newly installed magnetometer inside the Capitol on his way to vote, telling the Capitol Police that he cannot be stopped.

"The House installed the new magnetometers Tuesday and requires all members of Congress to walk through them before entering the House of Representatives chamber after rioters supporting Trump stormed the U.S. capitol Wednesday, committing acts of vandalism and violence. As a result of the riot, the electoral college certification process was postponed and members of Congress were forced to evacuate the building."

Ah yes.

Article I, Section 6, which includes the MC Hammer clause: "The Senators and Representatives shall receive a Compensation for their Services, to be ascertained by Law, and paid out of the Treasury of the United States. They shall in all Cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Arrest during their Attendance at the Session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same; and for any Speech or Debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other Place."

Can't touch this.

ITEM 18: The National Pulse reported, "A new poll by Data for Progress and shared by left-wing media outlet Vox reveals 43% of Americans feel that 'allegations of voter fraud have made them question the results of the election and Joe Biden’s victory.' "

Wait until they see Biden act as president. Then Americans will ask how in the dickens did he get nominated?


  1. Ya know, Big D, this shite has even gotten me thinking about people I’ve long held in high regard, like Dick Cheney. It’s like Gene Wilder in Willy there one good politician, one honest politician, left in this country?

    1. One, whose face is on Mt. Rushmore and a great big obelisk is named for him in his city's namesake... 'cept he is looking down, mad as 'ell at what His Country has become... He and Abe probably commiserate over morning coffee about it. zb

    2. ...make that two. Honest Abe, of course.

    3. I think there are some but I’ve been fooled before. Diogenes is on the case.

    4. Some mention should also go to Calvin Coolidge.

      And Ulysses Grant certainly deserves more credit than he got.

      We need some governors who want to be in that league - not by being careerists, but by using their governorships to defend the Constitution and the People.

    5. I have yet to see anything that puts Richard B Cheney in the same bag as his daughter. I'll go with Cal, but forget Abe and Sam.

      James Polk turned out to be a good man. Hated by everybody, but he kept his promises. Sounds a lot like Trump.

    6. "Honest politician" has become an oxymoron.

    7. Although I agree with your sentiment, I don't know, NB. I'm looking at Desantis, Jordan, Stefanik, Zeldin, Noem, etc. etc.

  2. 4 - I wouldn’t be surprised if the turtle and several others (Pierre Delecto (again), Sasse, etc) voted to impeach.

    5 - project Verona’s will be in the crosshairs of the new administration and the justice department.

    7 - Pelosi needn’t worry about the law. She’s a democrat.

    15 - the Supreme Court votes conservatively when it doesn’t matter.

    16 - there should be more CEOs like Gab’s CEO.

    1. I earned $35000 in the ultimate month by using online only for 5 to 8 hours on my computer and this was so smooth that I personally couldn't accept it as true before working on this website. if you too need to earn this sort of huge cash then come and be part of us. do this internet-website online.......­­­­𝘄­­­­𝘄­­­­𝘄­­­­.­­­­𝗯­­­­𝗶­­­­𝘇­­­­𝘀­­­­𝗮­­­­𝗹­­­­𝗮­­­­𝗿­­­­𝘆­­­­.­­­­𝗰­­­­𝗳­­­­

  3. Don, I will hope your DJT is still our President meme is still running on Jan 22.

    1. This comment has been removed by the author.

    2. In our hearts and minds; at least for my remaining days. He may be the last honest man to hold the Presidential Office in our lifetimes. I'd follow him to the Gates of 'ell! zb


    3. And tip the gate-keeper for the privilege.


    4. Donald Trump is my President until January 20, 2024. He is being denied an inauguration so that an imposter can receive an installation.

    5. Right on.

      Don, I will hope your DJT is still our President meme is still running on Jan 22.

      It should be running on 1/21/25.

  4. Item 1: Republicans are not the opposition party. They are the proposition party. They really put out for you if you're a Democrat.

    1. SUPERB! I hear that the hemorrhoid suppository, Proposition H, was named after them.

      ITEM 14: "... a condo on NYC's famed Billionaire's Row sold for a record 51% discount this week.

      "The property is... in New York's One57 building ... a 4,483 sq. foot parcel that was purchased... for $34 million. It was sold this week for $16.75 million. "

      All three "Screech" monstrosities --- I call them "Screech because, like the child actor on Saved By The Bell, they are hideously tall --- are visible from my living room window in the winter, after the leaves have dropped.

      I have hated the sight of them ever since they rose in the sky like poison ivy on vines. They are the physical personification of arrogance, social climbing and greed.

      What a pleasure it is to read now that the ultra-rich morons who bought apartments in them are now willing to accept ANY offer made by a buyer!

      Hell, we escaped, back in 1986. And we didn't have to put $17,250,000 in the Lincoln Tunnel Christmas Tax-Free Slush Fund.

      The most complicated issue was, two or so months later, having to patiently explain to the NYC telephone dolts that the reason why the last phone bill wasn't paid was because, gee, we didn't happen to live there any longer.

      Bonus: We now know who The Moron of The Century is... the buyer of the apartment. He just LOST $16,750,000.

      (The building's name is "One57." The reason for that is, because pretty soon, you see, the price of admission will be $1.57.)

      Trivia Department: Long, long ago, before World War I...

      57th Street in Manhattan --- "Billionaire's Row" (soon to be downgraded to "Thousandaire's Row") --- used to be the city's center of the bohemian arts.

      After WWI, the bohemians migrated down to Greenwich Village, which, a century later, is now, and has been since about 1990, a sterile urban bedroom community infested with Wall Street pimps and the like.

    2. P.S.: Which goes hand-in-hand with the recent news about Neil Young, who just sold his song catalogue for millions of dollars.

      Which, of course, will be donated to the needy farmers whose lifelong champion he has been...

      HA! What will happen, and overnight is my guess how long it will take, is that by 8:16 am next Monday, Young, upon receipt of the money, will have turned into Bill Gates, complete with brand-new, 3D-created fingerprints.

      He might even move into Greenwich Village.

  5. #12: There's a new name for lethal injection. It's called the Moderna vaccine and you don't even have to kill someone to get it.

    1. Marvelous! Just what America needs, a shot in the arm! (they'll miss).

  6. The post by Mr. Surber regarding Pelosi's interference in the Executive branch chain of command in the military (re: #7) baffles me as to why she is not charged by Congress with Sedition...Republican *crickets*. McCarthy the worm is the reason we ended up with Ryan as Speaker, as the majority then rightfully loathed McCarthy, who was openly seeking the position. ZB

    1. She said as well as she tried to get Trump out of the chain of approval for a nuclear strike. Had that been allowed, the anti missile forces in Alaska and California might have been grounded too. That would have been good news for China.

  7. #16. In Torba's written response to ADL, (taken from revolver)the last sentence is "Jesus is King" a man not afraid.

  8. Don you have given me an idea. All supporters should
    send a post card to the White House and say Thank You Mr President. All supporters should send a
    post card to their Senators and Reps saying - WE WILL REMEMBER with an up arrow that we will back you or with a down arrow means Watch out for the Primaries. Might have an impact on Congress on what
    their citizens really think and is a truly peaceful

  9. Item 1: Rep. Herrera Beutler-WA. I voted for her. I won't ever again.

    Item 7: "If true (this is a New York Times report after all) then Nancy is the one breaking the law." And SHE should be impeached, if that's possible.

    Item 17: Yayyyyy, Rep. Gohmert!!

    Item 18: "Wait until they see Biden act as president. Then Americans will ask how in the dickens did he get nominated?" We already know: The Dems done it.

    1. I was surprised to see two GOPers from Washington on the impeachment list. The new Oregon congressman wasn't.

    2. Only federal judges and executive office holders can be impeached. Only the two Houses can kick out their members. No recall allowed by a SCOTUS decision.

  11. 1: Whigs. Dough-faces.

    2: Sock it to 'em. Keep fighting.

    4: If Pelosi Galore wants it, she gets it. Unless Shi doesn't.

    That's the chain of command.

    7: you bring the rope, I'll bring the nachos.

    10: Where's JP Morgan when you need him?

    11: The proposal will include sizable direct payments to American families, significant state and local funding -- including for coronavirus vaccine distribution and other emergency spending measures -- to help those struggling during the pandemic.

    Will white people be included?

    15: Kabuki.

    17: We may have a new Amendment for the Honorables when we regain power.

    18: Try doubling that. I think most people know the lying dogfaced pony soldier has passed the sell-by date.

    And he was appointed, not nominated; appointed, not elected.

    He is not President. Donald Trump will be for the next 4 years.

  12. Item 10 is concerning
    I'm glad Schilling is OK but not all of us have his connections.
    Cancellation of insurance and revoked credit cards are a big deal.
    Maybe cell phone service will be next?

  13. Don, are the Poca WV teams called the Dots? Heard that once

  14. Women wanted to be treated the same as men...

  15. #11: I've seen in many places now that this includes aid to the hardest hit states (better known as bailing them out of bankruptcy). That cost alone will destroy us

  16. Item 1 Adam Kinzinger Ash and trash pilot for the US Air Force. They guy who sold out the party that brought him to power (the tea Party remember them) and is only looking at movie to Central America Costa Rica to retire in the style he has become accustomed to. Good going Illinois Combine

  17. This will bring inflation and the collapse of the dollar.

    So you say $2 trillion stimulus will do that? But when Trump got the $3 trillion stimulus signed into law you never said that did you.

    In fact, you applauded it. So I see you use a different standard based upon who is in power.

    But I already knew that.

  18. I don't know how top stop this runaway freight train. But I know it is coming. The question is when the devaluation comes....

    So Dems are not yet in power and you're talking doom gloom and despair. Yet when Trump ran the debt up $7 trillion in 4 years.....

    It was the best 4 years of your life! Do I have that right? So kindly elaborate: what's changed?

    Not counting who is in power. What ELSE changed?


    Which means nothing else changed its all about who is in power.

  19. #7: I once read a story about a Soviet defector; he was being shown around a city and saw some homeless people. He asked his CIA handler who they were and expressed surprise that there were homeless people in America. His handler scoffed at that and stated that Pravda had run numerous stories about homeless people in America. The defector replied that no one believed Pravda.
    To state that the MSM has zero credibility is to overstate. They have negative credibility - the quickest way to convince me of a lie is to have the MSM report it as truth (and vice versa).
    Also: H.L. Mencken wrote in the Baltimore Sun in November of 1938 that when fascism came to America it would be described as anti-fascism, and the Duce to lead it would claim to be an anti-dictator. This same sentiment can be found to have been expressed by several prominent politicians and writers of the time.

  20. Item 17: The MC Hammer Clause...
    "...can't touch this..." Who Gnu MC read the constitution?

  21. ITEM 2 - Rep. Greene would have a good case against Biden if she charged him with failing to register as a foreign agent of the Chicoms. She should also file impeachment charges against Kamala for promoting the summer riots and arranging the bailouts of rioters.

    ITEM 7 - Rep. Greene should also consider preemptive action against Pelosi, who is third in line to the White House.

    ITEM 8 - Rather than demonstrations on inauguration day, the best response would be to boycott the proceedings. Don't show up in person and don't even watch on television or the internet. What if they gave an inauguration and nobody came?

    ITEM 11 - Socialism fails when it runs out of other people's money. This might happen PDQ.

    ITEM 13 - My doctor advised me to wait for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine to gain approval, since it is based on dead viruses, which means fewer side effects. He took the Pfizer vaccine and felt lousy for about two days.

    ITEM 18 - Biden is the Democrat establishment's sock puppet. Once they won't need him anymore, he will be eased out.

  22. If the Democrats attempt to put Trump on trial after he is out of office, then Obama should face charges as well. But you'd have to have a GOP with some nads, and that seems to be in short supply.

  23. Item 17 - "The House installed the new magnetometers Tuesday and requires all members of Congress to walk through them before entering the House of Representatives chamber after rioters supporting Trump stormed the U.S. capitol Wednesday, committing acts of vandalism and violence."

    What a great idea! Like gun control, the trusted, elected representatives are being scanned to keep the rest of the House safe. Singled out the law abiding, and fine them for questioning authority.

    Yes, we know magnetometers are the correct answer to the storming of the Capitol. All those wishing illegal access will be sure to stand in line to go through the device one-by-one and then create havoc.

    Well, at least we'll know who and how many House members are carrying.

  24. #9) it was done once before to the 1876 Sec of War under Grant who was impeached and tied after he had resigned. He Was not convicted though.

  25. You continue to do a fine job, Don.
    But on inflation, I think you're wrong:
    "This will bring inflation and the collapse of the dollar.

    Which suits Biden's boss, Chairman Xi, just fine."

    Only places which fail in providing milk-break-clothes and the things normal folk want have inflation problems with money printing/ gov't budget deficits. See Japan, 220% national debt / annual GDP ratio - for 30+ years it's been "too high", and each decade since the 90s has been a "lost decade" for growth.

    BUT ... NOT inflation. The printed money is going into the stock market and good-area housing, and maybe bitcoin & crypto & gold.

    I used to think money printing "always" would lead to inflation. Now, I'm not sure - what is the limit of high Dow Jones valuations?

    Second: please consider talking about how the Dems are suppressing the truth about election fraud. Why are terrified of examining the evidence? Because all examined evidence points to fraud. History (55% max 61% vs 67%??? or more likely 62% legal plus 5% Biden fraud), statistics, dead people, folks who have moved, Mickey Mouse, unreadable or no signature on ballots.

    The Dems fear discussion of fraud - because unlike 9/11 conspiracy, or Obama "born in Kenya" conspiracy (despite the dishonest blurb in his early book), or even Holocaust denial, "election fraud" really did happen. That's why it can't be talked about.

  26. Sarah A. Hoyt has an excellent post:
    How To Read The News In Totalitarianism.
    Posted on January 14, 2021.

    People acting at variance with what is being reported. I’m sure my mom knew the president was dead because everyone in power was suddenly acting nervous or sniping at each other. (To be fair, it was possible he was unconscious for days, but you know.)

    In the same way, the current clown car coming into DC tells us they totes won, with the most votes ever, but the way they’re acting, tamping down all dissent, screaming the big, and ridiculous lies, and trying to get us to accept they’re totes legitimate or be punished if we don’t?

    That’s not the way legitimate winners act. That’s the way nervous (and stupid) embezzlers act, when they don’t want you to open the package and find out it contains cut up pieces of newspaper, instead of bank notes.

  27. I used to think elections mattered...Trump's win in '16 was the first true "will of the people" election in years, and will sadly very likely be the last. The deep state always made sure the primaries yielded acceptable (ie, puppets) and didn't really care who won, both were fine....elections just gave the illusion to the rubes they had a say. But Trump snuck by them in '16; nobody expected him to win, all the early big money was going to Jeb! But they started to panic when it began to look like could win, and coincidentally *cough* that was around the time the illegal FISA spying began on his campaign...that was indeed their insurance policy, and they hamstrung him with the bogus collusion SC. Then Ukraine, and then covid. As soon as I heard talk of mail-in voting I knew that would be their plan...just didn't think they would be so blatant....THIS is why they went after Trump hammer and tong from Day One and still are; he wasn't part of the club....can't have THAT

    1. will sadly very likely be the last

      Attitudes like that will make sure its the last. I don't think it is. I have enough faith in people to believe they will get involved in precinct politics.

  28. Nikki Haley has launched a PAC for her presidential bid. The text I received was for a PAC to elect principled conservatives. My immediate reply was STOP. Since the principled neoCONs we have now allowed the steal, I will not support them.

  29. An Ed.D is a fine degree for those who earn it honestly. My Uncle has one in three disciplines (History, Economics, Political Science) and he’s as sharp as any Ph.D you’ll find. OTOH, Jill was given hers as a freebie to grease Bidet*’s palm.

    She has done a huge disservice to the good people with Ed.Ds, though I suspect most of these are not of recent years...

  30. ITEM 17 — In which Don demonstrates he has lost all touch with Reality.
