Highlights of the News

ITEM 1: President Donald Trump proved the experts wrong. His Operation Warp Speed brought two covid vaccines by the end of the year using capitalism to cure the communist virus.

On Wednesday, the Biden administration made sure that won't happen again.

NBC reported, "The Biden administration said Wednesday that it would support waiving patent protections for Covid-19 vaccines after weeks of pressure from the international community as cases surge brutally in India and other countries."

Our fascist government will strip away the patents from Pfizer and Moderna, the companies that developed the vaccines. There goes the incentive to find a vaccine next time.

Not only did the deep state through Tony Fauci help finance the development of the Communist Covid by Red China, now the deep state wants to seize the vaccine.

The 21st century is making George Orwell's vision of 1984 look tame.

ITEM 2: Breitbart reported, "Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) says that unlike other states trying to defund their police departments, he is offering bonuses to every police officer, firefighter, paramedic, and emergency medical technician (EMT) in the state.

"During a press conference on Wednesday, DeSantis announced that as part of the state’s budget that he will sign into law, police officers, firefighters, paramedics, and EMTs in Florida will each receive a $1,000 bonus following a year of unrest spurred by the Chinese coronavirus and anti-law enforcement riots."

America's governor said, "Some want to defund the police. We’re funding the police and then some."

Police in clown towns such as Minneapolis, New York, and Portland need to move to Florida where All Lives Still Matter.

ITEM 3: The New York Post reported, "A heartless father accused of abducting his infant son used the boy as a human shield during a shootout with Mississippi police, according to a report.

"Eric Derell Smith, 30, allegedly kidnapped 4-month-old La’Mello Parker on Monday after police say he fatally shot his ex-girlfriend, Christin Parker, 32, and her 26-year-old nephew, Brandon Parker, near Baker, Louisiana, WALA reported.

"Smith was later spotted on Interstate 10 near the Louisiana-Mississippi state line, setting off a police chase that ended in Harrison County with him using his biological son as a human shield from officers’ gunfire, a law enforcement source told the station."

Smith is dead. The mother is dead. The child is dead. A nephew is dead. A Biloxi police officer and a sheriff's deputy are on administrative leave. Sad story. Pray for the cops who had to kill Smith. Pray for the Parkers.

ITEM 4: The South China Morning Post reported, "US defense contractor Honeywell has been fined $13 million for harming national security after sharing technical information about American fighter jets and other military aircraft with China and other countries. 

"The State Department said on Monday it had reached a settlement with the company on 34 charges relating to 71 drawings it shared with Beijing, Taiwan , Canada and Ireland between 2011 and 2015. The documents included the specifications of parts for the F-35 joint strike fighter, B-1B Lancer long-range strategic bomber and F-22 fighter aircraft, as well as gas turbine engines and other military electronics."

Fined?

I want the company banned and its CEO imprisoned, along with any and all personnel involved in this spying for Red China.

ITEM 5: The Washington Times reported, "Heading into the May 18 primary that will likely decide Philadelphia’s municipal elections, George Soros-backed District Attorney Larry Krasner is facing voters who are deeply concerned about soaring crime and homicide rates, a new poll finds. The poll of likely Democratic voters in the overwhelmingly Democratic city found nearly half—48%—named public safety and the homicide rate as an unprompted answer to Philadelphia’s most pressing concern."

Soros does not care.

Homicides rose 40% last year and hit a 30-year high. Mission accomplished.

By the way, the Fraternal Order of Police parked a Mr. Softee ice cream truck in front of the DA's office.

ITEM 6: Just the News reported, "Oral arguments before 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Tuesday provided a hint that the panel may be disinclined to strike down an Idaho law that bars biological males from competing in female sports.

"When a judge last week threw out a lawsuit by female student athletes against a Connecticut policy on transgender participation in athletics, he noted the transgender track stars that prompted the challenge had already graduated.

"Until biologically female athletes face male-bodied athletes again, U.S. District Judge Robert Chatigny ruled, the litigation couldn't go anywhere.

"The 9th Circuit floated the same mootness option when reviewing Idaho's Fairness in Women's Sports Act (HB 500), which would allow the law to finally take effect."

Enough with trans rights.

Protect cis rights. We were born this way, too. 

ITEM 7: Fortune reported, "The lumber shortage is getting worse. On Tuesday, the price per thousand board feet of lumber soared to an all-time high of $1,359, according to Random Lengths. Since the onset of the pandemic, the price of lumber has skyrocketed 280%. 

"For weeks, Fortune has relayed a similar message to readers: The price of lumber is likely to continue posting new all-time highs this spring. To the ire of home builders and DIYers alike, that prediction continues to be right."

Lumberjacking is the most dangerous job in America.

It pays only $41,230 a year.

Looks like America will have to increase the pay by $20,000 -- which would make their salaries the same as those of teachers.

Don't like paying $1,359 for 1,000 board feet of lumber? Get a chainsaw and really do it yourself.

ITEM 8: Reuters reported, "A federal judge on Wednesday threw out the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s nationwide moratorium on evictions, a setback for the millions of Americans who have fallen behind on rent payments during the coronavirus pandemic."

The judge is Dabney Friedrich, a Trump appointee. She wrote, "The question for the Court is a narrow one: Does the Public Health Service Act grant the CDC the legal authority to impose a nationwide eviction moratorium? It does not."

A pandemic does not void the Constitution, either.

We fought the War of Independence during a continental small pox epidemic, which killed one-third of the people who contracted it.

ITEM 9: The New York Post reported, "Rep. Liz Cheney’s days as the No. 3 House Republican may be numbered, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) said Wednesday.

"Jordan, the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, told Fox News Primetime that the votes are there to remove Cheney as House Republican Conference chair and added that such a vote will happen, most likely, next Wednesday.

"Cheney survived a vote to remove her from the leadership back in February."

Good.

I will have more at 11 AM.

ITEM 10: The Blaze reported, "Meghan McCain defends Liz Cheney in fiery tirade, warns GOP of dire consequences if she’s ousted."

There is the least surprising development of the day.

Daddy's daughters have to stick together.

Besides, if she leaves Congress, Liz will be free to replace Meghan on The View.

ITEM 11Voice of America reported, "The South Carolina House voted Wednesday to add a firing squad to the state’s execution methods amid a lack of lethal-injection drugs — a measure meant to jump-start executions in a state that once had one of the busiest death chambers in the nation.

"The bill, approved 66-43, will require condemned inmates to choose either being shot or electrocuted if lethal injection drugs aren’t available. The state is one of only nine to still use the electric chair and will become only the fourth to allow a firing squad.

"South Carolina last executed a death row inmate 10 years ago Thursday."

Firing squads are humane. Listening to Kamala and Hillary cackle for an hour would be considered a cruel and unusual death.

ITEM 12: The Arizona Republic reported, "The U.S. Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division is asking Arizona Senate President Karen Fann to respond to concerns the department has about the security of ballots and potential voter intimidation as the Senate’s contractors perform an audit of November’s presidential election in Maricopa County.

"In a letter sent to Fann on Wednesday, Pamela S. Karlan, principal deputy assistant attorney general in the division, asked for Fann’s response to its concerns with an explanation of 'the steps that the Arizona Senate will take to ensure that violations of federal law do not occur' during the audit.

"The department’s concerns may have been prompted in part by a letter it received Thursday from three organizations, including the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, asking the department to dispatch federal monitors to oversee the audit. That letter raised the same concerns that the department said it has, regarding the security of ballots and potential voter intimidation."

Warning: The Arizona Republic and its owner, Gannett, oppose the audit. This taints its coverage of the audit.

Imagine the uproar if the Trump administration pulled a stunt like this.

ITEM 13: Just the News reported, "White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain say the administration's chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci, has warned officials that herd immunity is likely a phrase that doesn't apply to COVID-19. 

"While all have been encouraged to get the vaccine in order to create herd immunity, the goal of a communal protection to the virus has been faded by the nation's health leaders."

So why did I bother getting vaccinated?

Throwing herd immunity under the bus is pretty dumb.

And evil.

ITEM 14The Daily Mail reported, "Fact-checking website PolitiFact only conducted 13 checks on Joe Biden in his first 100 days - compared to 52 for Donald Trump, a new study has revealed."

It won a Pulitzer, which is the Democrat Party Seal of Approval.

ITEM 15The Hollywood Reporter reported AT+T subsidiary Warner will make a black Superman movie.

Isn't that cultural appropriation? 

ITEM 16: Answer: Anderson Cooper's ratings.

Question: What is Trumpenfreude?

The Daily Wire reported, "Looks like Sony Pictures Television won’t be asking Anderson Cooper to permanently take up the Jeopardy mantle any time soon. The silver-haired CNN anchor pulled the least viewers of any guest host since Alex Trebek died of pancreatic cancer last November at age 80. In fact, Cooper scored the smallest audience of any guest host in the show’s history.

"According to ratings information obtained by The Wrap, with the 53-year-old Cooper at the helm, the long-running series dropped 7% from the week before when Green Bay Packers’ QB Aaron Rogers stood behind the iconic podium. Even Dr. Oz, who Variety columnist Daniel D’Addario accused of giving the show a black eye, attracted a bigger audience — putting up a 5.2 share in his first week to Cooper’s 5.1.

"Worse for Sony, Cooper’s stint cost the syndicated show its position at the top of the game show heap, causing it to fall behind Family Feud."

Once again, a CNN host has lost at Jeopardy.

Baby.

  6. 1 - Xiden’s thug regime is acting like communist China.

    10 - the threat by McCain will change a lot of votes. Hahahahahahaha. This Self important loser would be nothing without her last name. Maybe she’s seeing her future as a Senator go up in smoke.

    13 - the goalposts haven’t been moved. Fauxci has torn them down.

    16 - Cooper was horrible. Not as bad as Couric, though. The leftist parade continues this week and next with 60 Minutes’ Bill Whitaker, with Savannah Guthrie, Sanjay Gupta, George Stephanopoulos, Robin Roberts and Joe Buck upcoming.

    I may stop recording the show. I still haven’t watched the last 3 Cooper shows or the Whitaker shows. Not motivated.

  9. 7. I worked with a guy who had logged over in Idaho. He said the federal government ruined the industry. Mills in Canada were allowed to have enough timber to run their operations, but timber sales in this country are automatically fought by environmentalists and the mills often ran out of feed stock. Democrats hate America and its workers.

  10. 13: Fauxi continues to amaze. His sentences so often are colorful mush, as in this case re herd immunity. He is and always was a schmoozer, as in talking his way to an expensive government position (he parlayed the whole HIV thing).

  11. Item 4: Honeywell should be shut down and its management jailed for "30 years to life" (and NOT in "executive quarters".

    Item 12: As I keep saying, the media and the Dems sleep in the same bed.

    Item 13: Fauci is a faucist, and totally untrustworthy,

    Item 14: "Politifact" should be read as "Democratifakenews". Harsh? DESERVED!

    Item 16: I gave up on game shows yearrrrrrrrrrrs ago, just like network news. I don't miss it.

  12. Item 3: La’Mello? Is that a Scandinavian name? Just can’t trust those violent blue-eyed blondes.

    Item 4: “Honeywell has been fined $13 million” At less than $200K per drawing, Beijing is getting quite a deal. I’m sure Xi is more than happy to pay Honeywell’s fine. The Defense Department should clear all of Honeywell’s facilities, then hit them with precision air strikes. Level the company’s headquarters, offices, and production plants, and maybe they’ll get the message.

    Item 7: It’s about to reach the point that it’s more profitable to dismantle a house and sell the lumber piece by piece, rather than put it on the market and sell it as real estate.

    Item 9: “the votes are there to remove Cheney as House Republican Conference chair” I had to laugh when I read the spin the NeverTrump rag, National Review, put on this news. The essence was that Cheney would lose her position for “telling the truth” about Trump.

    Item 13: “Throwing herd mentality under the bus is pretty dumb.“ It’s just another reason NOT to get the vaccine. So now, you still have to wear a mask, even though you’re immune, AND you will no longer serve as a “control rod” to the COVID chain reaction.

    Item 15: “Warner will make a black Superman movie.” Maybe next they’ll do a “Superfly” remake with a white man in the title role.

  13. Donald John Trump is still our president.

    1: 1984 didn't have armed resistance.

    5: Nice touch.

    13: Toldja. If enough people are "vaccinated", then, supposedly, we have herd immunity. Sio they need something else to scare us.

    And the Deep State Dwarf will have been proved wrong yet again.

  15. #6 Liberal judges and courts do this more and more. A case can be postponed until after the person is no longer affected and the court can rule it moot. It's a nice easy, lazy way to conduct business.
    Heck, the Supreme Court even did this one better in cases dealing with the 2020 election. Parties brought cases before the election and it was decided they couldn't rule since no party had yet been affected. After the election the court ruled the election was over and the matter was moot.
    I have to believe that at least at one time we had a real judicial system in this country.

    1. Try again, Jeffery.

      Trump can be reinstated, so the issue is anything but moot, but Roberts & Co had been bought, so they passed.

      They can also be impeached for malfeasance and nonfeasance.

    2. Ed, while you’re technically correct, (I for one would love to see it) the de facto prognosis seems distant.

      I think that ruling the election fraudulent and therefore vitiated, reinstating Trump as the real winner—-also vacating every EO and appointment since 1/20—would be the right and robust thing to do.

      That scenario seems starkly bright but distant against the grimy reality of the humans we’ve got on hand to do it.

      If only...

  18. ITEM 1: Don, you’re not going to get me to shed a tear for Pfizer. Pfizer threw Trump under the bus by waiting until just after the election to announce their successful COVID vaccine.

    In case your memory is hazy, there was much contemporaneous reporting, most of it mocking President Trump (no surprise); one example:

    https://www.mediaite.com/election-2020/trump-accuses-pfizer-of-holding-vaccine-announcement-until-after-election-to-keep-me-from-winning-big/

    So in short, I have no problem with the Biden* Regime giving it to Pfizer good and hard.

    Your broader point is still valid, but I could care less if these drug manufacturers support Democrats. They can be hosed over by Democrats 24/7/365 and I won’t help them. Especially because they think they are much smarter and superior than a deplorable such as myself.

  22. Item 7 - I own a commercial construction company and we are paying about $1500/1000 for 2x4 and 2x6. Sheet goods are also crazy. 1/2" ply is about $2000/1000 sqft. About a year ago, 2x was about $500/1000 and 1/2" ply was about $600/1000. Lumberyards are starting to allocate quantities. That has never happened in the 30 some odd years I've been doing this.

    I see it getting worse. There are a lot of projects that went on hold when covid hit. Rubber band effect is now hitting bigly. With the labor shortages here in the Pacific NW, production is going to remain stifled throughout the building season this year and likely into next. Crazy days!
