Highlights of the News


Donald John Trump is still our president.

ITEM 1: TMZ reported, "Somebody left Speaker Nancy Pelosi a very disturbing message to kick off the new year and it seems to be related to the ongoing financial struggles of millions of Americans.

"Pelosi's San Francisco home was vandalized overnight. Most of the damage was done to her garage door and driveway. The perp or perps spray-painted 'Cancel Rent!' and 'We Want Everything' in big black letters on her door. And there's also a nod to the failed $2,000 government stimulus checks."

A severed pig's head was left in the driveway.

They messed with the wrong woman.

She is second in line to the presidency. That may make this vandalism a federal crime.

ITEM 2: Zero Hedge reported, "Here Are All The Banks That Paid Janet Yellen $7.3 Million In Speaking Fees In The Past 2 Years."

The story said, "According to Yellen's financial disclosure document, the 74-year-old former Fed chair has raked in a whopping $7.3 million in speaking fees in just the past two years from Wall Street banks and large corporations including Citi, Goldman Sachs, Google, City National Bank, UBS, Citadel, Barclays, Credit Suisse, Salesforce. Did we mention Citadel? We did, but we should mention it again because for some odd reason the high frequency trading firm which was recently busted for frontrunning its own clients (and everyone knows what Citadel has been doing with Robinhood option orderflow) has been Janet Yellen's biggest customer, paying her over $800,000 (!) for three speeches (in Oct 2019, Dec 2019, and again Oct 2010). And yes, this is the same Citadel where Yellen's predecessor at the Fed, Ben Bernanke remains a "senior advisor" although how this man, who has never traded one share in his entire life, is advising hedge fund and trading giant like Citadel, remains a mystery. 

"What isn't a mystery is why all these Wall Street firms, on at least 57 occasions, decided to fork over on average $127,310 to listen to Janet Yellen's confoundingly boring monotone: the reason is simple -- to buy influence from the one private sector individual that virtually everyone knew would soon return to public service under whatever administration followed Trump, and that's precisely what happened now that Janet Yellen will not only be in charge of the Treasury, but effectively in charge of the Fed too thanks to recent quasi fusion between the two institutions, which was required to launch helicopter money/MMT. That alone explains why Citi spent almost $1 million listening to Yellen on at least nine occasions in the past two years."

As Fed chairwoman, she gave them trillions. Now they give her millions as they hope for another big payday. 

ITEM 3: Hal Turner reported, "A politician in New York state has introduced a Bill which would empower the state to forcibly detain for up to 60 days without a court order 'anyone reasonably believed to have been exposed to . . . . or who had contact with' a contagious disease. No Warrant or Due Process necessary!

"Assembly Bill A-416, pre-filed for introduction in 2021 by Assemblyman Noah Perry of East Flatbush, Brooklyn, NY, lays out the forced confinement of -- anyone -- merely because government says so.   And the person being forcibly confined cannot even ask for a court hearing unless and until he's been deprived of his liberty for three days; and at such time, he can request to be heard (as the court calendar allows) and will need a Court Order to be free!" 

Excuse me, but didn't the city just reform bail to the point where anyone accused of a crime can walk out of jail?

If you tell the jailer you killed someone, won't they have to let you out?

ITEM 4: The Daily Mail reported, "'Get it together! Do something with this city!': Andy Cohen leads critics tearing into Bill de Blasio for dancing during NYE celebrations after 'turning New York into a wasteland'."

Cohen hosts shows on Bravo interviewing reality stars and celebrities.

He risked his credibility as a journalist by co-hosting CNN's New Year's Eve celebration.

ITEM 5: The National File reported, "Report surfaced Thursday that Sen. Majority leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) raged at Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) during an early morning GOP Senate conference call, demanding an explanation for why the latter lawmaker had pledged to contest the electoral college results on Jan. 6.

"McConnell was reportedly puzzled as why to why Hawley refused to answer, until ultimately realizing that Hawley had never joined the conference call to begin with."

Look for Hawley's parking spot at the Capitol to be moved to Maryland.

ITEM 6: Zero Hedge reported, "Meeting for a rare New Year's Day session, the Senate voted 81-13 on Friday to override President Trump's veto of the National Defense Authorization Act, which Trump said 'fails to include critical national security measures, includes provisions that fail to respect our veterans and our military’s history, and contradicts efforts by my Administration to put America first in our national security and foreign policy actions.'

"A two-thirds majority was needed to override the veto, which marked the first in Trump's presidency. The NDAA authorizes over $740 billion in military programs and construction, as well as 3% pay raises for US troops. It also contains a provision to rename military bases named after Confederate generals."

The big sticking point was giving Twitter, Facebook and other censoring social media platforms Section 230 protection from libel. 

In a fascist state, the government protects corporations that cooperate.

ITEM 7Breitbart Politics reported, "The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco ruled in favor of President Donald Trump’s order barring entry to legal immigrants until they fund their own health insurance and avoid becoming a 'public charge' for taxpayers.

"The San Francisco Chronicle put the number of migrants who would not be admissible at an estimated 375,000 every year — or about one million every 2.5 years."

President Trump appointed good judges, and ended the clown show that was the Ninth Circuit.

ITEM 8: CNBC reported, "The seven most valuable U.S. technology companies — Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Alphabet, Facebook, Tesla and Nvidia — picked up a combined $3.4 trillion in market cap in 2020, powering through a global pandemic and broader economic crisis.

"Between continued optimism over iPhone sales, Microsoft’s growing Teams collaboration product, Amazon’s ongoing control of e-commerce and the strength of Google and Facebook’s online ad duopoly, Big Tech was neither slowed by Covid-19 nor the rising number of investigations into its dominance.

"Tesla’s wild rally served as the biggest surprise.

"The stock climbed almost ninefold this year, lifting the electric car maker’s market cap from $76 billion at the beginning of the year to $669 billion at Thursday’s close. Despite initial factory closures due to the pandemic, Tesla bounced back to deliver a record number of vehicles in the third quarter."

Meanwhile, a million small businesses went out of business.

ITEM 9: The Hill reported, "Christian singer and activist Sean Feucht held a New Year's Eve concert in Los Angeles County on Thursday that drew around 2,500 guests despite the area's surging number of coronavirus cases.

"The Los Angeles Times reports that Feucht held the event in the parking lot of Higher Vision Church in Valencia, with many of the hundreds of guests attending without wearing face coverings. 

"It was one of many such events held by Feucht in recent days. He has been holding similar concerts across the country as well as a worship protest on the National Mall last October."

The concert truly was a peaceful protest -- to draconian lockdowns that have failed to stop the virus from going viral.

ITEM 10: The Associated Press reported, "A federal appeals court has cleared the way for the only woman on federal death row to be executed before President-elect Joe Biden takes office.

"The ruling, handed down Friday by a three-judge panel on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, concluded that a lower court judge erred when he vacated Lisa Montgomery’s execution date in an order last week.

"U.S. District Court Judge Randolph Moss had ruled the Justice Department unlawfully rescheduled Montgomery’s execution and he vacated an order from the director of the Bureau of Prisons scheduling her death for Jan. 12."

Moss is an Obama judge.

A federal jury found that the woman strangled 23-year-old Bobbie Jo Stinnett with a rope in December 2004, and then cut the baby girl from the womb with a kitchen knife. The murderer then attempted to pass the girl off as her own child.

ITEM 11: The Los Angeles Times reported, "So many frontline workers in Riverside County have refused the vaccine — an estimated 50% — that hospital and public officials met to strategize how best to distribute the unused doses, Public Health Director Kim Saruwatari said.

"The vaccine doubts swirling among healthcare workers across the country come as a surprise to researchers, who assumed hospital staff would be among those most in tune with the scientific data backing the vaccines.

"The scientific evidence is clear regarding the safety and efficacy of the vaccines after trials involving tens of thousands of participants, including elderly people and those with chronic health conditions. The shots are recommended for everyone except those who have had a severe allergic reaction to any of the ingredients."

The next two paragraphs then contradict the scientific evidence argument: "April Lu, a 31-year-old nurse at Providence Holy Cross Medical Center, said she refused to take the vaccine because she was not convinced it was safe for pregnant women. She is six months pregnant.

"Clinical trials have yet to be conducted on pregnant women who take the vaccine, but experts believe the vaccine is unlikely to pose a specific risk, according to the Centers for Disease Control. The agency says pregnant women may choose to be vaccinated."

Take the vaccine or don't.

It is your body, your choice.

ITEM 12: MSN reported, "Rego Park residents in Queens are complaining that a pack of pugnacious squirrels are attacking them unprovoked.

"At least five people in the neighborhood have been bitten or scratched by squirrels on 65th Road and 65th Drive within the last month, according to residents who spoke to Patch.

"They include Micheline Frederick, who had to go to the hospital after a squirrel attack so vicious that it left her hands and arms covered with bites — and her snowy front yard stained with blood.

"'He was angry and he was vicious,; Frederick told Patch of the Dec. 21 attack. 'This was more than just a bite. This thing was fighting with me.'

"Frederick said she was holding her front door open for two movers when the squirrel ran up to her and scurried up her leg. She threw the squirrel off of her, but it pounced back onto her and started biting and scratching her.

"The attack left her pinky finger 'pretty chewed up' and her hand bruised black and blue for days, she said. She had at least eight bites, prompting physicians at a nearby urgent care center to send her to the emergency room for rabies shots."

Queens needs some hawks.


ITEM 13: CNS News reported, "House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) announced today that she has created a new congressional committee—inspired by President Franklin D. Roosevelt—that is designed 'to study and combat the concentration of wealth in America and its role in triggering economic collapse.'"




How about we redistribute their wealth first?

ITEM 14: Breitbart reported, "House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Rules Committee Chairman James McGovern (D-MA) unveiled the rules for the 117th Congress on Friday, which contain 'future-focused' proposals, including the elimination of gendered terms, such as 'father, mother, son, and daughter.'"

Her future has no fathers, mothers, sons, or daughters.

What a sad future that would be.

Better watch Allan Sherman before they ban him, too.

    2. It is scary, for sure. Our squirrels run when they see people. The city told them to hire a trapper, and probably could give them a list of those the city has licensed. If they had done so, the squirrels would be old news by now.

      Where I live in Texas, the city/county will lend us (with deposit) a trap so that we can trap varmints ourselves.

  6. Just finished a new batch of KoolAid fellas! Come and get it.....

    What if, on January 6th, Trump addresses Congress and reveals that Epstein is alive and is going to testify against all the senators and House members who are pedophiles, and that Trump is going to bring the full force of Executive Order 13818 against those who were complicit in pedophilia or the trafficking of children? That would be a game changer. We could theoretically see 100+ members of Congress resign if that information were revealed.
    We don’t know whether this is the real plan, but it’s one possibility. Why did Trump extend EO 13818 for a full year if Trump were planning on leaving the White House on January 20th? Clearly, he’s not planning on leaving. He’s planning, in fact, on prosecuting the traitors.

    Trump might also unveil evidence that shows Joe Biden is a corrupt criminal who has taken numerous bribes from China and Ukraine. He could roll out the financial records in front of Congress, declare that Biden will be arrested the following day, and remind members of Congress that if they are complicit in the criminal fraud and sedition against America, they would face arrest as well.

    We don’t know exactly what’s going down on January 6th, but it’s something big.

    Item 3: I can see it now! Every one in NYC should call in and say "This politician, I am certain. has been exposed to a communicable disease." (Heh, heh, hehhhhhhhhh.)

    Item 5: The National File should change its name to The National Rasp.

    Item 6: "In a fascist state, the government protects corporations that cooperate." And the media will roll over and lie on there backs...and lie about whatever the Dems want them to.

    Item 13: Don's right! Redistribute the wealth AWAY from Congress critters!

    Item 14: What can I say, but, The STUPID is STRONG in these ones...

  8. Item 11: “researchers ... assumed hospital staff would be among those most in tune with the scientific data backing the vaccines.” The researchers are right. The hospital staff are the most in tune with the data backing the vaccine. That’s why they’re refusing it. People in their age group may have a 0.001% chance of severe complications from the CCP virus but a 0.005% chance of severe complications from the vaccine, so their decision is rational. They’re not anti-vaxxers; they’re anti-THIS-vaxx.

    Item 12: I’ve heard that the rabies shot series is very painful. CCP makes a “snake shot” round for a 357/38 Special. It’s like a miniature shotgun shell, with multiple steel pellets, that can be fired from a revolver. I’ve never had to use it against a squirrel, but I’ve dispatched plenty of snakes that invaded the sanctity of my 5 acres. A larger option would be a Taurus Judge, a revolver that shoots 410 shotgun shells. Bigger pellets, more propellant. For home protection, the first chamber could hold this less-lethal round, followed by more-lethal 45 hollow points in the remaining four chambers — just in case the perp doesn’t take the hint of the nine pellets in his face.

    1. Item #12: The people in Queens pay taxes and, no doubt, outrageously high property taxes. If Queens is like many municipalities, why don’t they deploy animal control? It’s their job.

      In another report, I learned that the authorities told the terrorized residents to hire their own exterminator. The women interviewed were the wrong races (Asian, Indian, White) and a lower socio-economic status, however, to be privileged with municipal elections services.

      So much for equity and the elusive commie utopia New York promised.

      Not sure these women can afford hand guns or the ensuing prosecution for using them either.

  11. As Fed chairwoman, she gave them trillions.

    Fact check: True. Now here we have a real story and a cause for genuine concern that transcends the usual partisan political BS. Putting a former FED chair in charge of the US Treasury is a signal to the world.

    That Wall Street and the international banksters will now take over the US Treasury. They are preparing for a new crisis. One they sure won't waste.

    It first surfaced under Omama: where they wanted to require all private pensions, like your 401K, to buy US treasuries of all sorts. Regardless of price.

    They will do this to keep interest rates low. Its for your own good after all didn't you know that.

    The FED is a fascist agency. The 12 FED branches scattered around the country are all privately owned. Held secret is who owns the shares and who is getting those 6% dividends paid ever year.

    We'll never know we're a nation of sheep.
