Highlights of the News



President Emeritus Donald John Trump arrives at CPAC.

I want one of them.

ITEM 1: Phil Mushnick of the New York Post wrote, "Coverage of Tiger Woods’ ‘accident’ ignores reality in favor of reverence."

His column said, "If I read or hear one more time that Woods, following at least his third rotten-driving escapade, is 'lucky to be alive,' I’m going to retch. Woods’ good fortune instead again lies in the fact he hasn’t killed anyone, including himself.

"Lucky? At least twice while driving after taking prescription drugs, he was lucky to have not committed vehicular homicide — in 2009 and 2017."

Health tip of the day: If Tiger Woods offers you a ride, turn him down.

ITEM 2: Sky News reported, "ISIS bride Shamima Begum is 'very angry, upset and crying' after being refused permission to return to the UK to fight a decision to strip her of British citizenship.

"On Friday, five Supreme Court justices unanimously turned down her request to be able to return to the UK to fight for her citizenship to be restored.

"Their judgment came six years after the then 15-year-old left east London with friends to join the Islamic State group."

Good.

Her body, her choice.

ITEM 3: Zero Hedge reported, "These 7 States Are On The Verge Of Herd Immunity."

Herd immunity is achieved when the herd hits 70% having been infected or immunized.

Zero Hedge reported, "So far, South Dakota, North Dakota, Rhode Island, Arizona, Oklahoma, Utah, and Tennessee are the nearest."

Make of it what you will.

A calmer and saner approach a year ago would have kept the economy going without trillion-dollar stimuluses every few months. But the media, deep state, and Never Trumpers wanted to use covid 19 to dethrone the president.

500,000 dead Americans meant nothing to them.

That should scare sense into everyone.

ITEM 4: United Press International reported, "President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris marked the milestone of 50 million COVID-19 vaccines being administered with a White House ceremony Thursday, praising the pace of inoculations.

"Biden said the United States is ahead of schedule to meet his goal of reaching 100 million doses administered in his first 100 days in office. Thursday was Biden's 39th day in office, which puts him 11 days ahead of schedule."

President Trump got the vaccine. Democrats take the credit.

ITEM 5: The Conservative Brief reported, "Marc Short, the former chief of staff to Pence, said on Fox News that Pence and Trump speak regularly and plan to play a big role in the 2022 elections to help Republicans take back the U.S. Senate and House.

" 'Despite their differences, the reality is that they’ve had multiple conversations. The president thanked the vice president for his service, told him he did a great job, and they’ve even had conversations since then, including even this week,' Short said.

"Trump thanked the vice president and told him he did a great job while in office, he continued."

Don't give up on Pence. Without second slates of electors, he had to accept the Electoral College vote. The failure was on state legislatures, not him.

ITEM 6: Tristan Justice reported, "Amazon stripped a documentary on conservative Justice Clarence Thomas, the only black justice currently serving on the Supreme Court, from its streaming service during Black History Month."

Black history does not refer to black people but rather the darkening of American history to remove any and all things that are positive.

ITEM 7: WHIO reported, "It won’t be a human taking your order at the Lee’s Famous Recipe restaurant in Englewood, Ohio, for much longer.

"Beginning Monday, the restaurant will be using artificial intelligence to take orders of customers passing through the drive-thru.

"The Hi Auto technology will be used after it was developed with speech enhancement software that eliminates background noise and is able to accurately recognize a person’s voice."

It is a scientific breakthrough. They have figured out how to get a robot to screw up your order just like any high school kid.

ITEM 8: The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported, "A Senate committee passed voting restrictions Friday that would end automatic voter registration and no-excuse absentee voting in Georgia.

"The Senate Ethics Committee voted mostly along party lines to advance the bills, which could reach the full Senate next week.

"The voting limitations advanced Friday are the latest in a series of bills pushed by Republican legislators after record turnout led to Democrat Joe Biden’s victory over Republican Donald Trump. Other legislation advancing in the General Assembly would add voter ID requirements for absentee voting, restrict ballot drop boxes and limit weekend early voting hours.

"Georgia has been a national leader in automatic voter registration since Republican Gov. Brian Kemp, who was secretary of the state at the time, implemented it in fall 2016. Since then, the state’s number of registered voters has increased by about 1.5 million, to a total of 7.7 million."

There are 7.8 million Georgians 18 and older.

Learn to ballot harvest, Republicans. Fight fire with water.

ITEM 9: NBC reported, "Past marijuana use won't automatically disqualify Biden White House staff."

Why should it? In fact, we should encourage these hyper-liberals to do more bong time and less running-the-government time.

ITEM 10: CBS reported, "13 House Republicans are voting by proxy on COVID relief bill, citing pandemic, but they're speaking at CPAC."

Why should they waste time in Washington when Democrats refuse to include them in the legislative process?

ITEM 11: The Associated Press reported, "Lady Gaga’s two French bulldogs, which were stolen by thieves who shot and wounded the dogwalker, were recovered unharmed Friday, Los Angeles police said.

"A woman brought the dogs to the LAPD’s Olympic Community Police Station, just northwest of downtown, around 6 p.m, said Capt. Jonathan Tippett, commanding officer of the elite Robbery-Homicide Division.

"Lady Gaga’s representative and detectives went to the station and confirmed that they were the dogs.

"The singer is currently in Rome to film a movie."

The dog walker, Ryan Fischer, took a bullet to the chest but was able to protect one of the dogs. Fischer is expected to recover. A little good news this morning.

ITEM 12: Deadline reported, "Deadline has confirmed that author Ta-Nehisi Coates is writing a Superman reboot feature for Warner Bros and DC, which J.J. Abrams is producing under his Bad Robot label.

"Hannah Minghella will serve as producer. No plot yet and no attachments despite the fact that we’ve heard how Henry Cavill is eager to get back into the cape."

Cavill?

No. It is time for a black lesbian Superman battling Lex Luthor in orange skin speaking with a slight outer borough accent.

ITEM 13: Greg Sargent of the Washington Post reported, "The GOP's strategy for retaking power is uglier than you think."

I sure hope so. I want to strike fear into these smug, anti-American liberals.
Thy mandates make heroes assemble,
When Liberty's form stands in view;
Thy banners make tyranny tremble,
When borne by the red, white, and blue!
2022 cannot come soon enough.

ITEM 14: Gateway Pundit reported, "Rush Limbaugh was laid to rest Wednesday in a private ceremony at a St. Louis, Missouri cemetery. A photo released by the Limbaugh family shows Limbaugh’s flag-draped coffin attended by a Marine honor guard."

Loan repaid.

Account closed.

He is with The Lord and watching over us.

ITEM 15: Big League Politics reported, "Secret Service agents have told Dan Bongino that President Joe Biden’s mental faculties are in bad shape."

Bongino is an ex-Secret Service agent.

He told Sean Hannity, "They call it the Secret Service for a reason, but I maintain a lot of contacts outside of even law enforcement. And I’m telling you from what I’ve heard from people in my network, everyone knows how bad it is. Everyone. It’s not a mystery. It is the worst-kept secret in the White House and how they can—think about this. We are not only in the second month of this, how bad is this going to be four years from now? This is a serious problem. This is not a joke."

Pray for America.

ITEM 16: DJHJ Media reported, "On Thursday, the Oklahoma House passed bill HB 1236 by a vote of 79-18 which would grant the state’s Attorney General and state Legislature the authority to review Biden’s executive orders in order to determine valid Constitutionality.

"But it’s more than just that. The bill authorizes the state legislature to recommend that the AG review any executive order, federal Congressional action, or any bureaucratic federal agency regulation in order to determine if the state should seek an exemption or simply declare it unconstitutional. If the AG or the state Legislature by concurrent resolution deems the order unconstitutional then all state and local officials, including any publicly funded organizations are barred from enforcing it."

If California can ignore immigration laws and be rewarded with 6 extra congressmen, Oklahoma can ignore edicts to make girls compete with boys in drag in sports.

ITEM 17: The Hill reported, "Donald Trump Jr. used his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando on Friday to rail against President Biden’s first moves in office and criticize establishment Republicans like House GOP Conference Chair Liz Cheney.

"Former President Trump’s eldest son mocked Cheney as Lincoln Project Liz, referring to the anti-Trump GOP group. Cheney was one of the House Republicans who voted to impeach his father.

"Trump Jr. also criticized Biden’s decision to end construction on the Keystone XL pipeline, accused him of caving to [Red] China, and blasted the new administration’s decision to launch airstrikes on Iran-backed militia targets in Syria on Thursday in retaliation for recent rocket attacks in Iraq."

The story also said, " 'Her family has a long history of friendly fire,' he quipped, alluding to the 2006 incident in which then-Vice President Dick Cheney, the congresswoman's father, accidentally shot a man during a Texas quail hunt."

Junior is a hunter, not a Hunter.

  2. Item 16. It will be a big game changer if Oklahoma challenges the unconstitutional fourth branch of government, the bureaucracy. The administratively mandated regulations and fines from those unaccountable agencies are more punitive than what Congress passes legislatively.

    1. Other states are following this same approach. I think South Dakota has instructed the AG to review Executive orders for applicability. President can oversee federal agencies but has no jurisdiction over state agencies. Possibly WY and other states affected by pipeline halt.

    2. I would hope that every state with republicans legislatures and governors would be doing this. If not, I’d question why they aren’t.

    3. I doubt that I was the first to come up with the idea or that anything I said about it spread... but this is indeed the plan that I had in mind way back in November as the appropriate strategy for coping with what would be coming.

      Sane jurisdictions have to refuse to enforce or allow the unconstitutional diktats falling down from the junta in DC. This is simple. The federal Constitution and the state constitutions were written as a vehicle for another one of my favorite attorney-speak phrases - "plain and ordinary meaning." Memorize that phrase and use it often. If courts (like SCOTUS) try to mess with this, tell them to sod off since the Bill of Rights was done in plain and ordinary meaning. Period.

      Real leaders need to do this - not engage in careerism for 2022/2024; we can't wait that long.

      And always keep in mind that the junta's greatest weakness is their lack of means of enforcement.

      (The other thing is jurisdictions taking action to clean up the electoral processes and such. Without that, nothing else will matter. Have you noticed how jurisdictions which clean things up suddenly are redder? I suspect that the left has noticed that...)

    4. And red counties in blue states should also announce a strict adherence to the constitution. MAGA has the numbers, we have the territory and we are the producers.

    1. Keep in mind that the 25th amendment would require a 2/3rds majority. The real GOP strategy should be to simply refuse to go along - you put that thing in there, you live with him. It sure foils the obvious plan to put that thing in the big chair, then "discover" his problems and try to defenestrate him in favor of their real desired person.

      I don't know who that is, but it's not kammy - she's a dud who would be prosecuting cow-tipping cases in some rural California county but for willie brown. Word on the street was that she was not in the loop on the Syria airstrikes and is furious about it - that should tell her that she's just a placeholder as well and is expendable.

    2. How much of a roll did Pence have in selecting Trump's "advisors" and all traitors infesting the White House? A pox on his house. As I've said before, Trump is his own worst enemy. If lets Pence back in, he deserves what he gets. Unfortunately, we don't deserve that.

  5. Item 3: Virus deaths are overstated by a minimum of 40%. Actual deaths are closer to that of a bad flu season (what DID happen to the flu season?).

    Few people know anyone who died of the virus and none who were young and healthy before becoming infected.

    It was all to destroy a presidency, a society and an economy.

    500,000 did not die from a virus. 250,000 of them died from lies.

    Replies
    1. If virus deaths are overstated by 200% that is still 170,000 deaths from Covid which would be nothing less than a horrific flu year.

      I do get your point though.

      Delete
    2. True enough. I actually do know of people who died of the virus combined with other complications. One who caught the virus in ICU and died a week later. In ICU. Of the virus. So the notion that a bikini bottom fabric will stop the virus is total BS. But the numbers they use is exactly what you suggest - a lie. There’s also the story about the nuns who cloistered when the virus hit last year and didn’t let anyone in until someone came to give them the vaccine. Now nearly half the cloister is dead.

  6. Don, you may like Pence and I won't deny that he's a good and decent man, but the fact is in today's environment anyone who was that close to the president and hasn't issued a statement fully backing Trump is suspect in my view. I'll take Matt Gaetz and Jim Jordan any day of the week over a spineless career politician like Pence, who obviously bowed to the swamp when the moment came.

  7. 1 - Mushnick has become a must read. He takes on the kneeling, whining athletes regularly. I am shocked the cancel culture hasn’t taken him out yet.

    7 - I would like to know if they have tested the voice systems on Cajuns (LSU football Coach Ed Orgeron) or a very rural southerner (super deplorable). If they can decipher them, then they will work for anyone.

    8 - a day late and a dollar short. Let’s see if the Governor vetoes it.

    9 - Hunter can be the official dealer to the White House staff.

  8. Pence is a snake. He could have announced how he intended to handle the electoral college vote weeks in advance. He waited until literally the last minute. Had he announced it sooner there probably wouldn’t have been a rally on January 6 because everyone would then have known it would be a waste of time.

    2. Excellent point, if he knew what he would do. And if he did know but deliberately concealed his decision, then he is indeed a snake. But it is impossible to look into his heart and know, so I cannot judge on that point.

      What I can say is that, with state legislatures begging him to delay so they could further investigate credible fraud allegations and possibly withdraw their certifications, his failure to give them the time they needed was a betrayal of the American people and our Constitutional system of elections.

  11. The bad news is we have 500,000 deaths because people refused to mask and social distance. The good news is we've had very few influenza deaths because people are wearing masks and social distancing. Anyone else think we are getting played?

    2. One shame in all of this mask-mania is that there actually *is* a reasonable case to be made that some light mask usage during the winter months when mingling in open settings (like grocery stores and airport terminals) can help to reduce the spread of colds and flu (by confining those to the masked person). Such masking is very common in eastern Asia countries.

      But this zealotry has made a rational consideration of such things impossible - for probably several decades.

      It reminds me of vague memories from childhood of the last vestiges of attempts to get the US to convert to "the metric system." A reasonable argument can be made that it is easier to work with the numbers since the system is rational (rather than organic), and it can be helpful to commerce to harmonize with the world system.

      Oh, but it wasn't marketed that way. The clowns who "marketed" the metric system clearly had never marketed a real product to a real customer - else they would have long ago learned that you don't "market" something by trying to insult the potential customer into compliance.

      The "marketing" (sic) was that basically Americans were SO stupid in using the Sterling system. Yeah, that's the ticket. And it was noticeable that the people doing this were also the same people who liked to insult their fellow citizens for playing and watching "stupid" sports like baseball and football, when we should smarten up and play and watch soccer (ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ).

      If God had wanted us to use the metric system, Jesus would have had ten apostles...

  13. Either a cabal of morally bankrupt, totally corrupt Democrats conspired to drag a 3 time primary loser up to be the presidential nominee by forcing/bribing his competitors to drop out, and then cheated and stole the presidential election, or Joe Biden was elected via an open and honest primary and general election because the American electorate chose to make one of the stupidest choices in history to select a leader.
    Either way, we are in deep shit. It is becoming more and more transparent that Slow Joe is neither physically nor mentally capable of performing the minimum requirements to be POTUS.
    The big question for the Democrat cabal is when do they pull the trigger? Will the Republicans go along? Will Kamala be as easy to control (the recent report of her being upset at being kept out of the loop about Syria indicates that once you make her president she just might use the power of that office to go independent)?
    I just don't see a way out of this that will be pleasant and peaceful.

There has probably never been a larger, more ruthless cabal of thugs anywhere on earth. So, Ms. Harris must know that if she strays too far out of line she will be stopped, whatever that entails. To these creatures everyone is expendable and nothing is off limits. They're on a mission to create a World Government and getting their marching orders from the Devil himself.

    5. Part of the Democrats' strategy for 2020 was its sheer outrageousness. When Trump's teams were pushing the state legislatures to effectively overturn the election, they were presenting the issue to often part time legislatures normally used to discussing paving rural roads. They were simply overwhelmed. The Dems probably depended on that.
