Highlights of the News


Way down yonder in Jim Crow Georgia, CBS reported, "Hideki Matsuyama makes history as first Japanese man to win golf major."

Korea's Si Woo Kim finished tied for 12th.

Trump-hating Rory McIlroy failed to make the cut. A year ago, he was the No. 1 golfer in the world. Then he dumped on Trump.

ITEM 1: The Associated Press reported, "It was supposed to be a unifying weekend for a Republican Party at war with itself over former President Donald Trump’s divisive leadership. But Trump himself shattered two days of relative peace in his closing remarks to the GOP’s top donors when he insulted the party’s Senate leader and his wife.

"Ahead of the invitation-only speech at Trump’s new home inside his Mar-a-Lago resort, the former president’s advisers said he would emphasize his commitment to his party and Republican unity.

"Trump veered sharply from prepared remarks Saturday night and instead slammed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., as a stone-cold loser and mocked McConnell’s wife, Elaine Chao, who was Trump’s transportation secretary."

Not mentioned in the story was Chao's resignation from the Cabinet two weeks before the term ended in protest to Trump's rally at the mall on January 6.

When Trump needed her most to stave off impeachment, Chao was in the crowd cheering Democrats on.

Politico headlined its report, "Republicans not pleased with Trump’s fiery Mar-a-Lago speech."

Well, voters are not pleased at all with the Republican performance. Actions matter more than words.

"We need unity," Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson said.


ITEM 2: Speaking of unity, via Pajama Media, CBS Sunday Morning’s John Dickerson asked John Boehner about his book he is promoting. Dickerson said, "You call some of these members political terrorists."

Boehner said, "Oh, yeah,” Boehner replied without hesitation, “Jim Jordan especially, my colleague from Ohio. I just never saw a guy who spent more time tearing things apart – never building anything, never putting anything together."

No Democrat speaker would do that to his own party.

But Republican congressmen prefer to be in the minority.

ITEM 3: The Associated Press reported, "Iran on Sunday described a blackout at its underground Natanz atomic facility an act of nuclear terrorism, raising regional tensions as world powers and Tehran continue to negotiate over its tattered nuclear deal.

"While there was no immediate claim of responsibility, suspicion fell immediately on Israel, where its media nearly uniformly reported a devastating cyberattack orchestrated by the country caused the blackout.

"If Israel was responsible, it further heightens tensions between the two nations, already engaged in a shadow conflict across the wider Middle East. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who met Sunday with U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, has vowed to do everything in his power to stop the nuclear deal."

If I were  Bibi, I would not give Austin the time of day because, as Chairman Xi's puppet president, Biden is siding with Iran.

After all, Democrats and Iran share the same goal: Death to America.

ITEM 4The National Pulse reported, "A significant majority of Representative Matt Gaetz’s constituents believe the congressman shouldn’t resign in light of allegations of sex trafficking or that he is guilty, according to a new poll.

"The April 10th poll comes from Victory insights and finds that less than one in five of Gaetz’s constituents believe the congressman is guilty and over 60% feel he is innocent."

No polls have been taken of whether Democrat Eric Swalwell's constituents want him to resign after we discovered he bedded Red Chinese spy Fang Fang.

ITEM 5The New York Post reported, "A New Yorker who wants to marry their own adult offspring is suing to overturn laws barring the incestuous practice, calling it a matter of 'individual autonomy.'

"The pining parent seeks to remain anonymous because their request is 'an action that a large segment of society views as morally, socially and biologically repugnant,' according to court papers."

On May 28, 2015, Rolling Stone ran, "10 Completely Vile Things Rick Santorum Has Said."

No. 2 on its list was "If the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual sex within your home, then you have the right to bigamy, you have the right to polygamy, you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery. You have the right to anything."

Lefties mock you only when you are right.

ITEM 6: Breitbart reported, "A Michigan judge ruled last week Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson (D) broke state law when she unilaterally issued rules related to absentee balloting, legitimizing a key claim made by the Trump campaign in its legal challenges to the 2020 election.

"Benson issued several unilateral orders during the 2020 election including sending absentee ballot applications to all registered voters. She also issued guidance on how to evaluate absentee ballots, a move Michigan Court of Claims Chief Judge Christopher Murray held violated the state’s Administrative Procedures Act."

37 states.

12 were stolen.

ITEM 7: The Washington Post reported, "More than 100 corporate executives hold call to discuss halting donations and investments to fight controversial voting bills."

Obama is able to put the arm on them because of white guilt.

This is how a fascist state operates with the corporations in bed with the government to control the people.

ITEM 8: Breitbart reported, "A top aide to Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) traveled to Florida for spring break this week, according to photos she purportedly posted on Facebook.

"Tricia L. Foster, who was appointed by Whitmer as the state’s Chief Operations Officer, posted several photos from the Florida Keys, according to screenshots obtained by Breitbart News."

Democrats don't follow the law or any other rules in Michigan.

Fascism is not only using muscle to enforce draconian edicts, but also to flout those very fiats.

ITEM 9: CNN reported, "A new Reuters/Ipsos poll finds that 55% of Republicans falsely believe Joe Biden's victory in the 2020 presidential election was the result of illegal voting or rigging. Additionally, 60% of Republicans incorrectly agree that the election was stolen from Republican Donald Trump."

Hahaha.

From the same bozos who gave us the Russian Hoax comes a lecture on passively accepting election results that defy logic.

ITEM 10Twitchy reported, "As Twitchy readers know, Jake Tapper was being well … Jake Tapper about the location of CNN’s headquarters, deflecting, pretending he’s reporting on the facts of a story when in reality he’s pushing an agenda to help Democrats who look like total doorknobs having supported moving the MLB All-Star Game from a Black-majority city to a White-majority city look less stupid. When Ted Frank pushed him further on this topic, specifically about CNN being headquartered in Georgia, the back and forth got pretty heated."

Frank is a lawyer who sued class-action lawyers and won concerning legal fees. 

It was not a pretty exchange because onions have thicker skins than TV presenters do.

ITEM 11Politico reported, "Four times in recent weeks, members of the White House press corps have relayed questions to press secretary Jen Psaki from someone claiming to be a fellow reporter who was not able to be there in the room due to Covid protocols.

"That colleague, who goes by the name Kacey Montagu, doesn’t exist — at least not as an actual reporter.

"Since late last year, Montagu has taken on the identity of a White House correspondent extraordinaire with a fictional outlet to boot: White House News, shortened in emails to WHN.

"Montagu started two real-life Twitter handles, which are followed by some top White House officials and journalists. Montagu has filed Freedom of Information Act requests and obtained Psaki’s personal financial disclosure form, along with the disclosure of at least one other official, the president’s national security adviser, Jake Sullivan.

"In communications with confidants, Montagu has posed as a member of White House Correspondents Association, claiming to be a reporter for The Daily Mail, the British tabloid known for its gossipy coverage of celebrities and political figures. Montagu also communicates regularly with top White House reporters and has had several exchanges with White House officials.

"But Montagu never joined WHCA and The Daily Mail. There is no Kacey Montagu, except as a digital impersonation of a White House correspondent."

Worst White House ever. The fish rots at the head, and this one forgot how to swim.

ITEM 12: Freedom First reported, "If you want to make a mainstream media “journalist” or Democratic politician laugh, tell them about Antifa. They treat the domestic terrorist group with such little interest that we have to assume they think they’re a joke. But things have turned deadly, again, with their latest terrorist attack, this time in Portland.

"The Neo-Marxist group barricaded the doors of the Portland Immigration and Customs Enforcement building, trapping everyone inside. Then, they lit the building on fire."

The mainstream media ignores the insurrection because it sides with the anarchists.

ITEM 13: The New York Post reported, "A 12-year-old boy is expected to survive after being shot in the chest while walking on a Brooklyn street Saturday night, according to police and sources.

"Shots rang out at around 9:50 p.m. as two groups were fighting near Malcolm X Boulevard and Madison Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant, the NYPD said.

"The boy heard the gunfire — and then felt pain and realized he’d been hit, cops said."

If you name a street after Malcolm X, expect violence.

ITEM 14: WND reported, "President Biden is sending migrant children to the Los Angeles County Fairgrounds, which was used during World War II as an internment camp for Japanese Americans.

"The chairwoman of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, Hilda Solis, confirmed the decision was made after discussions with the Biden White House, reported Press California.

"The flood of migrant children coming across the Mexican border illegally began in January as Biden prepared to take office with a promise to reverse Trump policies that addressed the 2019 border surge."

They are not migrant children.

They are largely invading swarms of teens.

ITEM 15: The Associated Press reported, "The family of a 20-year-old Minnesota man told a crowd that he was shot by police Sunday before getting back into his car and driving away, then crashing the vehicle several blocks away. The family of Daunte Wright said he was later pronounced dead.

"Officials from the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension said the agency was on the scene of a shooting involving a police officer in Brooklyn Center on Sunday afternoon. Meanwhile, the Wrights demanded answers from police."

Paragraph 5 said, "According to a statement from Brooklyn Center Police, officers stopped an individual shortly before 2 p.m. Sunday after determining the driver had an outstanding warrant. Police said when they tried to arrest the driver, the driver reentered the vehicle and drove away. An officer fired at the vehicle, striking the driver. Police said the vehicle traveled several blocks before striking another vehicle."

Rioters turned this into an excuse to hold another mostly peaceful protest.

The insurrectionists do not realize that they serve the very people who will be their slavemasters.

FINALLY, the British media used the death of Prince Philip at 99 to bash him one last time.

The man was brilliant with a wry sense of humor who used his position to say what others could not say. The Daily Star ran 100 quotes it disliked. Some were horrible, no doubt. In 70 -plus years in the public spotlight, one is bound to put his foot in his mouth. But the man also had a great sense of humor. My favorites were:

On Princess Anne, 1970: “If it doesn’t fart or eat hay, she isn’t interested.”

After being told that Madonna was singing the Die Another Day theme in 2002: “Are we going to need ear plugs?”

To Simon Kelner, republican editor of The Independent, at Windsor Castle reception: “What are you doing here?” “I was invited, sir.” Philip: “Well, you didn’t have to come.”

“People think there’s a rigid class system here, but dukes have even been known to marry chorus girls. Some have even married Americans.”

Using Hitler’s title to address German chancellor Helmut Kohl in 1997, he called him: “Reichskanzler.”

(He fought on all three fronts in World War II and never forgave the Germans for killing some of his relatives.)

On stress counselling for servicemen in 1995: “We didn’t have counsellors rushing around every time somebody let off a gun. You just got on with it!”

To Cayman Islanders: “Aren’t most of you descended from pirates?”

To a Scottish driving instructor, 1995: “How do you keep the natives off the booze long enough to pass the test?”

While watching robots collide: “They’re not mating are they?”

While stuck in a Heriot Watt University elevator: “This could only happen in a technical college.”

To the General Dental Council in 1960: “Dontopedalogy is the science of opening your mouth and putting your foot in it, which I’ve practiced for many years.”

He made the queen laugh, which is why she kept him around.

    6. Mutnodjmet - You're right. RINOs are the lowest form of life in politics. From Don's Item #1, I sense an epic battle going on between Trump and the RNC. The clue was Trump going off script to bash McConnell and his Chinese wife. After that, I expect to see more news about the Southern District of NY going after Trump's business. I can only imagine the pressure he's under. God bless the man! And a pox on the house of the RNC!

    9. Re: Anything DeSantis 2024, it sounds great, but we can't wait that long (for liberation in 2024). As I've said many times, we need governors (and smaller-jurisdiction officials) who simply will not allow violations of the plain-and-ordinary meaning of the Constitution by the illegitimate junta in DC to be operational in those jurisdictions. Most of the world is top-down - the US isn't so we can run with that.

      One reason that Kristi Noem (remember her?) crashed and burned so spectacularly is because she totally did-not-grasp this immediate need. As Mark Steyn (that name again!) put it this morning, "So she's done as a national figure, because her cowardice has made her insufficient for the times." That's what we need right now - courage sufficient for the times. So far, Gov. DeSantis appears to have it... and I'll judge him on how he actually DOES stuff, not how he talks (as positioning for 2024). 2024 is going to be a reward for anyone who fights the fight NOW.

    10. Mutnodjmet,
      I am of the same mind. That's why I don't get too worked up when I hear talk about how bad Clinton and Obama were. They would lie to your face, but you knew they were lying. And they knew that you knew they were lying. If you want to get my blood pressure up, talk about the two Bushes. The Uniparty thrived under their leaderships and did more damage to the country than any Democrat.

    4. See, Ed, here's how it works. Leftists go in lockstep, since (a) collectivism is the core of their ideology, and (b) few people sincerely believe any of that BS. Thus we find that once one of them comes up with a catchphrase or nickname or whatever, all of them start using it in unison. By contrast, the right is more individualistic (consider the actual grassroots Tea Party vs. the Astroturfed Coffee Party), so different people come up with different nicknames and slogans and suchlike on their own, and others may adopt them if they like them, or not do so if they don't. Which means that if you don't find anyone else using, say, Bidet* as a nickname for the FICUS, what of it? There's no edict from on high that this nickname must be used and that one is verboten.

      (Now, "conservatives" of the National Review stripe may perhaps be another matter, but then they're little more than leftist fellow travelers.)
