Highlights of the News


Who wore it better?

ITEM 1: Breitbart reported, "President Joe Biden has put a bust of Cesar Chavez in the Oval Office, even though Chavez was a militant opponent of Biden’s cheap labor migration policies.

"Progressives portray Chavez as a heroic Latino who fought to win legal rights for foreign-born Latinos.

"But Chavez is a hero to American solidarity activists because he and his allies fought the farm industry’s relentless campaign to import cheap labor instead of hiring Americans at decent wages."

Chavez was right.

By the way, can I start eating grapes again?

ITEM 2: The New York Post reported, "President Biden set off a heated identity politics debate less than 24 hours into his presidency when he signed a gender discrimination order that has drawn heat from critics who accuse him of erasing women’s rights.

"Language in the order would allow transgender women to participate in women’s sport leagues."

Progressives now place fake women above real women, dismissing the latter as trans-exclusionary radical feminists, or TERFs.

So after six decades, radical feminism has taken women from serfdom to TERFdom.

ITEM 3: Where are the Republican lawyers seeking nationwide injunctions to stop Chairman Xiden's executive orders?

Don't tell me we confirmed President Trump's judges just so they can sit on the sidelines toasting marshmallows while the Constitution burns.

ITEM 4: Hot Air reported, "Feel The Healing: MSNBC Analysts Discussing Banning Republican Speech, Years Of Detox For The Right."

Attention Never Trumpers: You are not excluded from the punishment.

ITEM 5Katie Hopkins reported, "As I grabbed some coffee before heading to the Capitol Building to watch the 46th President of the United States of America take his title, the lovely lady behind the counter told me she had never seen anything like this in D.C. in her life.

"And all I can say as I stand here now in the freezing cold with a handful of others is that I hope America never has to see anything like this again. Nothing is as it seems. It is just horrible, in every sense.

"There is no one here. And I am not saying that in the weird competitive way people talk about crowd sizes as a measure of popularity. Remember the endless quarrel over the size of Trump's inauguration crowd versus Obama's?

"What I mean is that there is literally no one here. Even pressed up to the gates within sight of the Capitol Building there is barely a handful of Biden supporters -- alongside a small gaggle of media, scratching about, trying to find something to film.

"Residents with the means to do so have moved out. Others stay locked in their homes. And visitors heeded the fear-mongering and stayed away. I was called ‘a moron with a death wish’ for traveling here to document this event. And even though it is perfectly safe, no one is here to bear witness to this event."

It is called martial law.

Soldiers patrol the streets as Washington becomes Pyongyang West.

ITEM 6: Cesare Sacchetti tweeted, "When Joe Biden's motorcade passed, many guardsmen had their backs turned to him. It seems that a part of the military will never recognize this illegitimate and puppet president."

He had video.

They are not supposed to look at the caravan. They are supposed to scan the crowd for possible assassins.

Oh wait.

No crowd.

ITEM 7: Asawin Suebsaeng tweeted, "Mike Lindell, MyPillow creator & sometimes Trump adviser, told us tonight on the story of his alleged romance with 30 Rock & Kimmy Schmidt star Jane Krakowski: 'I have never met that person and I told the Daily Mail that. My lawyers are going after them.' " 

If they think that's bad, wait till her lawyers get hold of the story.

ITEM 8: Politico reported, "Thousands of National Guardsmen were forced to vacate congressional grounds on Thursday and are now taking their rest breaks outside and in nearby parking garages, after two weeks of sleepless nights protecting the nation’s capital in the wake of the violent Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol.

"One unit, which had been resting in the Dirksen Senate Office building, was abruptly told to vacate the facility on Thursday, according to one Guardsman. The group was forced to rest in a nearby parking garage without internet reception, with just one electrical outlet, and one bathroom with two stalls for 5,000 troops, the person said.

" 'Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,' the Guardsman said.

"Politico obtained photos showing the guard members packed together in the parking garage, sleeping on the ground."

Pelosi and Leahy (president pro tem) should publicly apologize in a letter asking commanders to remind Guardsmen that legislators are not in their chain of command.

ITEM 9: The New York Post reported, "Mike Pence fights back tears, thanks Trump in farewell speech."

He is a good man whose loyalty was a bright spot these last 4 years. He's back home again in Indiana.

2024?

We shall see what the Election Fairy brings us.

ITEM 10: Breitbart reported, "Many on the left are promoting a recent video created by novelist and left-wing activist Don Winslow, which calls upon citizens to become cyber detectives to monitor and report fellow citizen Trump supporters to authorities while comparing the work of this army of citizens to that which led to the capture of al-Qaeda founder Osama bin Laden."


In the eyes of these loons, anyone who did not vote for Chairman Xiden is worse than Osama bin Laden. It would be funny if they did not have nukes.

ITEM 11: Just the News reported, "White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Thursday said 'we have bigger issues to worry about' than whether President Biden and members of his family were complying with his own new federal masking mandate after the president and multiple family members were seen maskless at an inaugural event. 

"Psaki was asked at a White House press conference why Biden on Wednesday night was observed maskless while attending an event at the Lincoln Memorial, something that would appear forbidden under the mask mandate Biden himself had implemented via executive order just hours before."

So much for leading by example.

ITEM 12: Via Zero Hedge, Mitch McCain McConnell submitted a schedule for the sham impeachment.

The minority leader said, "When the articles arrive, the House Managers would exhibit (read) the articles to the Senate, Senators would be sworn in as Members as the Court of Impeachment, and would issue a summons to former President Trump. While we do not know what day the Managers will choose, Leader McConnell has asked for this to occur on Thursday, January 28. 

"Former President Trump would have one week from that day to answer the articles of impeachment (February 4). The House’s pre-trial brief would also be due then.

"The President would then have one week from the day he submits his answer to submit his pre-trial brief (February 11). That means former president Trump has 14 total days from when we issue the summons to write his pre-trial brief. The House would also submit its replication on this date.

"The House would then have two days to submit their rebuttal pre-trial brief (February 13).  

"This approach tracks the structure of the Clinton and Trump pre-trial processes. 

"The periods between due dates are longer than in 1999 or 2020, but this is necessary because of the House’s unprecedented timeline."

President Trump should demand more time for discovery, the interviewing of witnesses, and the filing of pre-trial motions. Unlike 1868, 1999, and 2020, there is no rush to convict the president because he already is out of office.

Also, there is the matter of who presides over the trial. The Constitution requires Chief Justice John Wayne Gacy Roberts to preside. He does not want to. Surely the president has the right to file a writ of mandamus to order Roberts to do his job. 

Make the impeachment as uncomfortable and politically expensive to McConnell and Schumer as possible.

ITEM 13: RT World News reported, "Australians could soon be deprived of Google’s ubiquitous search engine, with the web behemoth threatening to cut off service should lawmakers pass a hot-button measure forcing tech firms to cough up revenue to media outlets.

"As Australian legislators continue to debate the controversial law – which would compel internet platforms to hand over a cut of revenues to press agencies for sharing their content – Google stepped into the fray on Friday, insisting the move would make its operations unfeasible in the country."

Once upon a time, countries could ban companies.

Now companies want to ban countries.

For my Australian readers I have three words: Duck Duck Go.

Thanks to Tim Blair, I do have Australian readers.

ITEM 14: Jim Hoft reported, "They Don’t Want the Truth to Come Out: Senate Democrats File Ethics Complaint Against Senators Cruz and Hawley for Challenging Election Fraud."

The charges are lunacy and an attack on free speech.

Democrats are having a nervous breakdown. I believe they lost the election and know it.

ITEM 15: The New York Times alleged, "A teenage employee stole nearly $1 million from a Kroger supermarket in the metro Atlanta area and then went on a shopping spree for guns, shoes and cars, including a Chevrolet Camaro that he totaled, the authorities said on Thursday.

"The employee, Tre Brown, 19, obtained more than 40 refunds on several credit cards for merchandise that he falsely claimed had been returned to a Kroger in Duluth, Ga., the police in Gwinnett County said.

"The transactions ranged in value from $75 to more than $87,000, according to the police, who said that the fraud scheme was carried out over two weeks in December and January while a supermarket compliance officer was away."

Didn't Richard Pryor already do this in Superman III?

ITEM 16: France 24 reported, "Portuguese voters will head to the polls to choose a president on Sunday, with the dramatic context of a coronavirus lockdown creating more headlines than the expected re-election of incumbent Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa.

"The country of 10 million people has this week been breaking daily records in virus death tolls, with 221 fatalities in 24 hours announced Thursday by the national health authorities.

"On Wednesday, Portugal hit a record 14,647 new cases in one day."

Fox has already declared the winner.

ITEM 17: AMN News reported, "A large U.S. military convoy was seen entering northeastern Syria on Thursday, marking the first time since Damascus issued its letter to the United Nations Security Council demanding the immediate withdrawal of American forces from the Arab Republic.

"According to a field report from northeastern Syria on Thursday, the U.S. military convoy entered the Al-Hasakah Governorate from neighboring Iraq, as they were observed entering the Arab Republic via the Al-Waleed Crossing."

Donald Trump was the first president in nearly half a century not to start a war.

This is the legacy the deep state most wants erased.

ITEM 18: Coast to Coast AM reported, "A member of the Oklahoma House of Representatives has filed a bill that calls for the establishment of a Bigfoot hunting season in the state. The audacious idea is reportedly the brainchild of Rep. Justin Humphrey, who reportedly put forward the proposal on Wednesday. The fairly succinct resolution, which can be read here, states that 'The Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Commission shall promulgate rules establishing a Bigfoot hunting season. The Commission shall set annual season dates and create any necessary specific hunting licenses and fees.'

"It remains to be seen whether or not the bill will wind up receiving a vote when the Oklahoma legislature meets on February 1st as, similar to what happened with a Washington state bill aimed at putting Sasquatch on license plates, it could get stuck in the bureaucratic process. Be that as it may, should be resolution pass, it would go into effect on November 1st, 2021. As one might imagine, response to the bill has been mixed with some residents considering it an embarrassing waste of time and others recognizing it as a clever joke which could generate some tax dollars by way of people buying the novelty Bigfoot hunting licenses."

  4. The biggest question in my mind today is will the arrogance of the left be their undoing? They have gotten away with a stolen election, they have gotten away with treason (top secret information on an easily hacked computer, sale of uranium to an adversary, etc.), they have gotten away with murder (Seth Rich, Jeffrey Epstein, Ashli Babbit?, Vince Foster?).
    They are openly contemptuous of people who voted for a legitimate presidential candidate calling us irredeemable, deplorable, and enemies of the state.
    Nancy Pelosi even called for machine guns to be displayed to intimidate peaceful protestors.
    Now, the executive orders coming out and the policy proposals will drive our economy into the ditch with massive unemployment (the real minimum wage is $0).
    Will the people whose daughters must now share a locker room and team bus with boys and compete with them athletically accept this nonsense?
    Will the people whose jobs came back to the US via a magic wand watch in silence and inaction as those jobs go away?
    Half the people in this country thought we were headed in the right direction before the election. Will they agree with the stated objective to reverse Trump's policies?
    At what point will the anger and frustration of half the country reach the boiling point? Will the next revolution be conducted via the ballot box, or will it resemble the French revolution?

    1. And don't forget the impact of shutting down Keystone XL and banning fracking. The only "upside" there is that it may be enough to get red state governor to go "sanctuary city" on this garbage.

      This rancid political class is arrogant, ignorant, and incompetent; they really think that they can destroy the economy of the rest of the country and get away with it? Oh my...

      I've mentioned it before, but for decades the lefties have been fussing that the American Revolution was too gentile and too polite - being all soft-glove about things like restoration of the 1688/89 declarations of the rights of British subjects that had been abrogated by King George III... and how they fantasized about having instead something more like the French Revolution.

      Well, they may get it - but with THEM as the weak, effete, parasitic aristocrats who carted away...

  5. #9. That's a hard NO for 2024. Yes, great guy and loyal to a point. But I didn't see him fight for PDJT when it really counted. And I don't see him fighting for US in the same way Trump did. We need a pit bull not a spaniel.

    1. He only paid lip service to loyalty on a couple of occasions because it was the only choice he had at the moment.

      I will never vote for a Bush, Haley, or Pence.

      State legislatures in the stolen states must clean up their act. Then we get Trump to bury Bidet* in 2024, assuming they prop the latter up that long.

      People are gonna see a YUGE contrast between Trump and this nonsense, which includes Pence. We're done with focus-grouped retail politicians. Trump changed the paradigm with his straight forward way of speaking. The media can cry all they want. The man told it like it was.

  7. 12) we have a kangaroo court. No basis in law or the Constitution. I have read Kurt Schlichter's books about the red/blue breakup of the US. One could believe after a few drinks that the Democrats have used his book's blue state's stupidity and tyranny as a blueprint for their road map to power. One might think Kurt is over the top until Biden opens his mouth.

    He is none of these things and I'll add that he's a coward. He had a chance to potentially save the Republic and he punted.

    He was never on the Trump Train. He was to Trump what Bush 41 was to Reagan.

    6. Snow nailed it when she mentioned Jack Kemp. Word on the political street is that Reagan was threatened to be Goldwatered if he did not choose Bush the former CIA deep state director.

      And then by 1981 they tried to assassinate Reagan! Remember that one?

      It was crystal clear it was a setup. As Reagan left the hotel after a speech they arranged for him to have to walk a hundred feet down the sidewalk....

      RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER OF THE BUILDING!

      And guess who was waiting the Hinckley guy whose father had ties to Bush in the oil industry.

      So hats off to Snow she reminded me of the poison pill Reagan had to take.

    9: No, Pence had his shot at doing the right thing and he sold out. Of all the people who doublecrossed Trump, he's the worst.

    I even took the Trump/Pence sticker off my car.

    2. Item 3: "Don't tell me we confirmed President Trump's judges just so they can sit on the sidelines toasting marshmallows while the Constitution burns."

      After witnessing the lower and Supreme Courts, with three of Trump's nominees/USSC justices cowering under their desks when asked to stop a rigged presidential election, I have no faith in any of the other judges, which Quisling McConnell is so proud of having gotten confirmed, doing the right things.

      Item #7: "Mike Lindell, MyPillow creator... alleged romance with... Jane Krakowski..."

      Jane was quite the looker, in the waning years of World War II.

      If this story is true, then Mike Lindell must be, currently, about 119 years old.

      The Daily Mail, a long time hatchet-job go-to outfit for hits on Trump, is going to find that their unique defense --- that "pillow talk" is protected by the First Amendment --- will not protect them.

    Flynn is a straight arrow and that is quite rare since he's from the intel circles. Looking further into Flynn and you'll see how he hated the way Obama created ISIS to destablize Syria.

    Flynn is a hero but will not be called that in the history books that often called crooks heroes and heroes crooks.
