Highlights of the News


Chairman Xiden's inauguration speech was so boring, Clinton nodded off. A reader observed, "It was the first time Bill slept next to Hillary in 40 years." 

Congresswoman Lauren Boebert asked on Gab, "Is the fencing in DC to keep Joe from wandering off?"

ITEM 1: Breitbart reported, "The National Guard said Thursday it is working to return some of the troops who came to Washington, D.C., to protect the inauguration, but that thousands will remain on duty.

"In a press release, the Guard said 10,600 will remain on duty for the time being to continue the mission of assisting federal law enforcement authorities in protecting the Capitol."

Are they sure they have enough empty parking garages to house them all?

ITEM 2: OANN reported, "President Trump gave thousands of National Guard troops permission to stay at his Trump Hotel in Washington, D.C. after Capitol Police kicked them out of the Capitol Building.

"On Thursday, 5,000 Guardsmen brought in to protect Joe Biden’s inauguration were forced to take shelter in an underground parking garage after they were told to vacate the building.

"The move garnered intense backlash after it was revealed the soldiers were forced to sleep on the ground in freezing temperatures and had just one bathroom as well as one power outlet to share."

Citizen Free Press posted a video, "DC police chilling inside Trump hotel."

The man America re-elected in November remains awesome.

ITEM 3: David Begnaud of CBS gushed on Twitter, "Biden says on day 1 he’ll order FEMA to set up covid 19 vaccination centers around the country to vaccinate millions. He wants to give 100 million shots in his first 100 days."

That's a million a day.

Timothy P. Carney of the Washington Examiner reported, "On Trump’s last day, 1.6 million vaccines were administered. Compared to that, Biden’s talking about slowing down vaccinations by 35%."

West Virginia leads the nation in vaccinations. The National Guard is largely responsible for this. Instead of having Guardsmen sleep in parking lots in DC, why not send them home to give people covid 19 shots?

ITEM 4: The Washington Post reported, "U.S. Scientist Sees New Ice Age Coming."

The report was on July 9, 1971. (Scroll down to see it.)

ITEM 5: The National File reported, "A leading medical journal has issued a retraction of their endorsement for a study that concluded the anti-viral drug hydroxychloroquine was ineffective against the COVID-19 virus. This retraction appears to validate the claims then-President Trump made about the medication being a frontline drug in the battle in the pandemic.

"The Lancet, a respected online medical journal, issued an apology to its readers in an edition last year after the retraction. 'We deeply apologize to you, the editors, and the journal readership for any embarrassment or inconvenience that this may have caused,' the publishers of The Lancet said.

"Compared to the significantly more expensive medications being used to treat the virus, hydroxychloroquine – a drug widely used to treat malaria – is relatively inexpensive and universally available. Hydroxychloroquine ranges in price from $0.30 to $6.63 per dose depending on location."

Inconvenience.

Fact check: True. 300,000 people have been inconvenienced in the USA because they cannot hold funerals for their relatives who died of covid 19 for lack of HCQ and zinc.

ITEM 6: Donald Trump Jr. tweeted, "Also worth noting it doesn’t end oil transportation it just forces oil companies to spend more money shipping oil on Warren Buffett's rail lines. 

"See how that works? It’s not environmental policy it’s a kickback to Democrat donors and nothing more."

I have railed against the Buffett railroad monopoly in North Dakota, which is third among the states in oil production.

Obama bent over for Buffett. Now Chairman Xiden does.

ITEM 7: Caleb Hull tweeted on an Oval Office exchange. 

REPORTER: "You said you set the goal at 100 million vaccines. Is that high enough? That's basically where the U.S. is right now."

BIDEN: "When I announced it, you all said it's not possible. Come on give me a break, man!"

He also plans to take credit for moving the embassy to Jerusalem, for the stock market recovering in record time, and Kansas City winning Super Bowl 54.

ITEM 8: United Press International reported, "A group of three dozen House Democrats signed a letter Friday asking President Joe Biden to commute the death sentences of all federal death row inmates and work to dismantle the form of punishment at the federal level.

"The plea comes on the heels of 13 executions carried out by the Trump administration since July, a legacy the Democrats described as 'one of carnage and unrestrained violence.' They called on Biden, who has voiced his opposition to the death penalty, to emphasize rehabilitation for offenders in his Justice Department, not execution."

When it comes to "carnage and unrestrained violence," nothing comes close to what is happening in the cities controlled by Democrats. Murder rates are soaring, and Democrats side with the murderers.

ITEM 9: Josh Blackman reported, "Texas has sought the first nationwide injunction against the Biden administration. Texas has challenged the 100-day moratorium on deportations. You can download the Complaint and Motion for a Temporary Restraining Order. This case differs from past suits in one significant regard: on January 8, DHS and Texas reached an agreement that limited changes to immigration policy. In effect, the Trump Administration tried to place handcuffs on the Biden Administration." 

Thank you, Democrats, for showing us how to stymie a new president.

ITEM 10: The Truth About Guns reported, "Aero Precision, one of the nation’s leading firearm parts and accessories manufacturers, warned Tacoma, Wash., city officials their proposed punitive gun and ammunition tax would have consequences. Officials passed the proposed increases and instituted the taxes and fees.

"Aero Precision answered back. The company and its 800 employees announced plans to expand and grow their manufacturing base in nearby Lakewood, Wash. Instead of investing in more jobs, more infrastructure, and more taxes paid to the City of Tacoma, Aero is literally sending their business elsewhere."

Why are they still in Washington state?

ITEM 11: Amy Graff reported, "699 people died of drug overdoses in San Francisco last year compared to 235 from covid 19."

The masks may be working but the free needles aren't.

ITEM 12: Breitbart reported, "Senate Republicans are reportedly firing warning shots ahead of the looming impeachment trial for former President Trump, suggesting that they will no longer be able to support Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) as leader if he votes to convict the former president.

"McConnell has yet to determine how he will vote in the upcoming Senate impeachment trial, stating in a letter earlier this month that he intends to 'listen to the legal arguments when they are presented to the Senate.' His refusal to reveal his leanings and recent determination that Trump and “other powerful people” essentially 'provoked' the January 6 mob have appeared to cause a bit of unease among Senate Republicans."

There is no legal argument to listen to.

This impeachment is a joke.

Do they really want to give Donald Trump a national forum?

He has nothing to lose. He is no longer president, too old to run again, does not need the pension, and can afford his own personal security.

He can tell the truth, and watch Congress melt like the Wicked Witch of the West when she met a pail of water.

ITEM 13: Lady Gaga sang the national anthem at the inauguration, but Chairman Xiden should have asked Chrissie Hynde to sing it.

They have a lot in common.


They are both Pretenders.

ITEM 14: Just the News reported, "Former President Donald Trump said on Friday in his first public comments since leaving office that he is planning to make a comeback, but he was short on details. 

"He told Rob Crilly of the Washington Examiner that 'We'll do something, but not just yet.' Trump was dining at the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida when he made the comment. 

"The comment was similar to what he said Wednesday morning in his last hours in office, just before leaving for Florida, when he said that he would be back 'in some form.' "

In some form.

Hmm.

Trumpzilla would be my first choice for that form.

Oh, hon. There goes Washington.

Trumpzilla!

ITEM 15: Zero Hedge reported, "After spending months on the campaign trail criticizing the Trump administration's COVID-19 response and promising to 'crush' the virus with a comprehensive action plan, President Biden now says there's 'nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next several months.' "

Like Antifa, Chairman Xiden no longer needs the virus to gain power, and so it fades away.

ITEM 16: Amanda Terkel reported, "House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) attracted attention last week when he said in a floor speech that former President Donald Trump “bears responsibility” for the deadly Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

"But since then, he has seemed to walk back his criticism. 

"On Thursday, he told reporters that he didn’t actually believe Trump had “provoked” the mob of his supporters. 

"In an interview airing Sunday on Gray Television’s 'Full Court Press With Greta Van Susteren,' McCarthy insisted he wasn’t changing his tune.

" 'No, I have not changed in that,' he said.

"He stood by his assertion that Trump does bear some responsibility for what happened. But, he added, so does every other person around the country."

This is what passes for conservativism in Washington. He is blaming society instead of the individuals who decided storming the Capitol was a good idea.

ITEM 17: New York Daily News reported, "A former ADT employee admitted Thursday that he hacked into the video feeds of more than 200 Texas customers to spy on naked women and couples having sex inside their homes. 

"Telesforo Aviles, 35, logged into customers’ accounts more than 9,600 times over a four-year period 'in order to view their footage for sexual gratification,' he admitted in federal court."

Chairman Xiden will put his job application in to ADT when his presidency ends.

ITEM 18: The Epoch Times reported, "A sex trafficking victim has filed a lawsuit against Twitter in a U.S. district court in California, alleging that the social media giant knowingly received and distributed child pornography from which it could benefit.

"According to the court filing, John Doe said he was solicited and recruited for sex trafficking as a minor. After his escape, material depicting his abuse was disseminated on Twitter." 

Put me on the jury. 

Twitter bounced the president but showed child porn.

I really want to be on that jury.

ITEM 19: The Blaze reported, "The New York Times fired an editor after one tweet she posted that appeared to express joy and excitement over the inauguration of President Joe Biden.

"HuffPost contributor Yashar Ali reported that two sources confirmed on Friday that the Times had cancelled Lauren Wolfe’s contract after an outpouring of ridicule over her tweet.

"On Tuesday, Wolfe tweeted that she had chills from seeing the landing of Biden’s plane in Maryland ahead of his inauguration."

What was the problem? Did she not cheer hard enough?

UPDATE: The answer is the story is bogus. She was let go but not for this reason. The Times ain't disclosing it.

  4. Item 6: Keystone Kickbacks. Don S. recently pointed out that CNN toes the left wing agenda because AT&T, the owner, fears big government, which means they fear the left. Perhaps it is time for Big Business to start fearing the right.

    The Attorney General of North Dakota should launch an investigation to see if there is corrupt influence bribery in the closing of the Keystone pipeline. If Xiden did not cut off the importation of oil from Canada, the logical conclusion is Xiden or his operatives have a financial stake in this alleged corruption.

    The AG can also throw in potential environmental degradation due to the high spillage rate of freight transportation of oil compared to the safer use of pipelines.

    Big Business is not free market capitalism; it is an arm of big government. See Twitter and Facebook restriction of free speech. Time for Big Business to start fearing Conservatives instead of treating us as the useful idiots we have become.

  7. Fact there are still a lot of obstacles for getting hcq for Covid treatment in the us. There were more obstacles that have been removed.

    I’ve been amazed at the amount of dishonest, no just evil actions to stop the use of hcq in the us. Fda, state governors, pharmacy association, media, etc.

    It cuts the death rate tremendously. Switzerland stopped using it due to the discredited study, death rate went up, started during it again, death rate went down.

  12. "West Virginia leads the nation in vaccinations."


    No it does not. Texas has vaccinated more people than any other state (last time I checked) and even if it is no longer first it is WAY ahead of tiny West Virginia in total numbers.

    Percentages don't mean much with tiny sample sizes. Any statistician will tell you that.
