Highlights of the News

ITEM 1Ace of Spades reported, "New Hunter Biden Emails Disparage 'Fa**ots' and 'D*kes.'" That is on top of calling his lawyer the N-word.

Hunter learned those words at home from his father. The rotten apple doesn't plop far from the tree.

ITEM 2: The Daily Mail reported, "Even the Biden administration appears to be baffled by Kamala Harris' trip to Guatemala and Mexico to address the border crisis.

"White House insiders were 'perplexed' by her answers to her questions over whether she would visit the Rio Grande and 'hoped her first foreign trip would be a success', CNN reported. 

"White House also fear that any progress she made during her meetings with the Guatemalan and Mexican presidents may be undone by her mixed messages and terse encounters with reporters. 

"Harris' trip was meant to focus on the 'root causes' of migration that have led to families and unaccompanied children heading north to the border."

If you cannot fake concern over our border, maybe you should not be a Democrat vice president.

Can the 25th Amendment be used to replace her?

In the meantime, let us replace "Hail, Columbia" as the ceremonial song for the vice president with that Fleetwood Mac song, "Over My Head."

ITEM 3: A reader responded to my remark about Harris in yesterday's highlights. I wrote, "Her staff is sabotaging her. She must be a monster to work for."

He said, "Bingo!" Then he told me about a sale he made last fall. It was " to a woman who had worked in Harris’ Sacramento US Senate office.

"This woman is in her 60s, an attorney and a life-long Democrat. She quit because working for Harris was simply intolerable. She told me that the staff turnover in Harris’ offices was horrendous, even in Sacramento, which Harris (still a Senator at the time) rarely visited. She told me that Harris keeps her staff stirred up and at each other’s throats and is a profane abusive tyrant. This woman told me she was voting for Trump because she had seen what Harris is really about."

Hillary.

Michelle.

Kamala.

ITEM 4: The Department of Interior's inspector general announced, "At the request of then Secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior David Bernhardt and Members of Congress, we reviewed the actions the U.S. Park Police took to disperse protesters in and around Lafayette Park in Washington, DC, on June 1, 2020."

The protesters had set fire to St. John's Church the night before. 

The IG said, "We found that the USPP had the authority and discretion to clear Lafayette Park and the surrounding areas on June 1. The evidence we obtained did not support a finding that the USPP cleared the park to allow the President to survey the damage and walk to St. John’s Church. Instead, the evidence we reviewed showed that the USPP cleared the park to allow the contractor to safely install the anti-scale fencing in response to destruction of property and injury to officers occurring on May 30 and 31. Further, the evidence showed that the USPP did not know about the President’s potential movement until mid- to late afternoon on June 1—hours after it had begun developing its operational plan and the fencing contractor had arrived in the park."

The media said the area was cleared for a photo op.

Once again, the press lied.

This makes me so angry, and I get in trouble when I write in anger. So let me skip to the next item.

ITEM 5: Real Clear Politics reported, "When Fulton County, Ga., poll manager Suzi Voyles sorted through a large stack of mail-in ballots last November, she noticed an alarmingly odd pattern of uniformity in the markings for Joseph R. Biden. One after another, the absentee votes contained perfectly filled-in ovals for Biden — except that each of the darkened bubbles featured an identical white void inside them in the shape of a tiny crescent, indicating they'd been marked with toner ink instead of a pen or pencil.

"Adding to suspicions, she noticed that all of the ballots were printed on different stock paper than the others she handled as part of a statewide hand recount of the razor-thin Nov. 3 presidential election. And none was folded or creased, as she typically observed in mail-in ballots that had been removed from envelopes.

"In short, the Biden votes looked like they’d been duplicated by a copying machine."

But the media says this is a big lie.

The media says this has been debunked.

Just like they debunked covid 19 coming from a lab in Red China.

ITEM 6: AP reported that Josef Biden "dropped Trump-era executive orders intended to ban the popular apps TikTok and WeChat and will conduct its own review aimed at identifying national security risks with software applications tied to China, officials said Wednesday.

"A new executive order directs the Commerce Department to undertake what officials describe as an evidence-based analysis of transactions involving apps that are manufactured or supplied or controlled by China. Officials are particularly concerned about apps that collect users’ personal data or have connections to Chinese military or intelligence activities."

Hunter must have already collected the million-dollar bribe that will rake in billions for Red China.

ITEM 7: Crain's New York reported, "Sales of plexiglass tripled to roughly $750 million in the U.S. after the pandemic hit, as offices, schools, restaurants and retail stores sought protection from droplets that health authorities suspected were spreading the coronavirus.

"There is just one hitch: Not a single study has shown that the clear plastic barriers actually stop the spread of the virus, said Joseph Allen of Harvard’s Chan School of Public Health."

There was no study that showed masks or social distancing worked.

HCQ worked.

The FDA banned it.

ITEM 8: Newsweek reported, "Former Democrat Jessica Gomez has entered Oregon’s 2022 gubernatorial race as a Republican candidate.

"Citing last summer’s riots in Portland, which went on for more than 100 days, and one of the state’s most destructive wildfire seasons, Gomez said it’s time for new leadership in the Beaver State."

The story also said, "Four other Republican candidates have declared their bid for the governor's seat: former Republican nominee for governor Bud Pierce; Sandy Mayor Stan Pulliam; former U.S. Senate candidate Paul Romero; and business owner Darin Harbick. Pierce lost by nearly seven percentage points to Brown in 2016.

"While no Democratic candidates have formally announced their run, the state hasn't had a Republican governor since 1987."

Democrat Governor Kate Brown cannot seek re-election. This may become interesting.

ITEM 9: The Evening Standard reported, "Mother of Sasha Johnson demands answers as police reveal no guests at party shooting have come forward."

The story said, "None of the 30 guests at a party where black equal rights campaigner Sasha Johnson was shot has come forward to give a statement, police said as they appealed for information."

Black lives don't matter to BLM.

Not even their own.

ITEM 10: Quote of the day from Josef Biden, "I Keep Forgetting I’m President."

Ho ho ho.

I am beginning to believe the dementia thing is all an act to make him seem harmless.

ITEM 11: The Daily Caller reported, "Two Boston public school officials resigned over texts they sent each other disparaging white people from a local neighborhood, the Boston Globe reported Monday.

"Boston School Committee Member Lorna Rivera resigned Friday before the text messages from a conversation with the committee’s chair Alexandra Oliver-D├ívila were about to be made public."

Why do people keep electing racists to public office?

ITEM 12: Breitbart reported, "The sanctuary state of Colorado will begin allowing illegal aliens to obtain professional licenses, funneling them into white-collar American jobs.

"This week, Gov. Jared Polis (D) signed into law a plan that will give out professional licenses for jobs in education and health care, among other industries, to illegal aliens. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s FWD.us had lobbied state lawmakers to pass the legislation."

Don't bother with medical school.

Just go to Colorado. Tell them you are an illegal alien, and they will give you a medical license.

And some other advice: Avoid Colorado hospitals because you no longer can trust the state's licensing board.

ITEM 13: Real Clear Politics reported, "On MSNBC, former president Trump has received 129% of the coverage of President Biden, followed closely by CNN's 118%. On BBC News London, Trump has received 83% of Biden's mentions, while on Fox News Trump has received just 55% as much coverage as Biden."

That explains their ratings trouble. They are stuck in the past.

Meanwhile, Fox is beginning to cover Biden's presidency and its ratings have improved.

Matt Drudge has not mentioned Hunter calling people the N-word, dykes, and faggots. Maybe if Drudge did, he would regain some of that 60% drop in traffic he experienced since turning on Donald Trump.

ITEM 14: CNSNews.com reported, "Shalanda Young, acting director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, told the House Budget Committee on Wednesday that the president’s budget referred to mothers as birthing people because 'there are certain people who do not have gender identities.'"

She is from Baton Rouge originally.

Why do all the crazy people wind up in Washington?

ITEM 15: CNBC reported, "Inflation has been warming up this spring, and it’s expected to hit historical levels for the month of May.

"The consensus forecast for the core consumer price index, which excludes food and energy, is 3.5% on a year-over-year basis, according to Dow Jones. That’s the fastest annual pace in 28 years.

"Economists expect both core and headline CPI rose by 0.5% in May. Headline CPI is expected to jump 4.7% year-over-year, the highest rate since sky high energy prices spiked inflation readings in the fall of 2008."

This is a tax on the poor, who will pay for all that excess borrowing by Washington.

Under President Trump, the income gap between the poor and the rich shrank for the first time since Reagan was president.

The rich now laugh at all the fools who voted for Biden.

Suckas!

ITEM 16: Fox reported, "More than 180,000 migrants were encountered attempting to get into the U.S. via the southern border in May alone, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced Wednesday -- the latest sign of a continued and unrelenting crisis at the southern border.

"CBP said that 180,034 migrants were encountered along the border, a slight increase over the 178,000 encountered in April and 172,000 were encountered in March – all representing the highest numbers in years. March saw a big increase from the 100,000 migrants encountered in February."

I don't want to hear one Republican in Congress complain because when they had the chance to fund Trump's wall, they refused.

Republicans also refused to repeal Obamacare.

ITEM 17: The New York Times uttered, "A court on Wednesday designated Aleksei A. Navalny’s political movement as extremist, a remarkable broadside by President Vladimir V. Putin that also sent a message to President Biden ahead of their meeting next week: Russian domestic affairs are not up for discussion. 

"The court decision — almost certainly with the Kremlin’s blessing — seemed likely to push the resistance to Mr. Putin further underground, after several months in which the Russian government’s yearslong effort to suppress dissent has entered a new, more aggressive phase. Under the law, Mr. Navalny’s organizers, donors, or even social-media supporters could now be prosecuted and face prison time."

No.

The message was Putin is every bit a totalitarian as Josef Biden, who has hundreds of January 6 dissidents in jail right now.

ITEM 18: The Herald reported, "Abertay University student Lisa Keogh cleared after being investigated for saying women have vaginas."

The 14-year-old me would have loved to have been on that investigation.

Of course, the 14-year-old me lived in the 20th century when men were men, and women were happy for it.

ITEM 19: Capitol Hill Seattle reported, "City says won’t permit Juneteenth celebration in Cal Anderson on anniversary of CHOP formation."

Why would Democrats celebrate the freeing of slaves? They opposed the original Juneteenth.

ITEM 20: Mark Thiessen of the Washington Post had an interesting take on Joe Manchin.

He said, "They need to decide: Do they want Manchin to be their party’s John McCain (R-Ariz.) — a maverick who went his own way on issues but stayed within the party fold? Or do they want Manchin to become their party’s Jim Jeffords, the Vermont Republican who became the first senator in history to hand Senate control to the opposition by switching parties? In May 2001, Jeffords announced he was leaving the GOP to caucus with the Democrats. Then, as now, the Senate was split 50-50 — which meant his defection put Democrats into the majority."

I do not see Manchin becoming a Republican. Ever.

But if I were Chuck Schumer, I would not push my luck.

ITEM 21: News Max reported its coverage of Trump's speech to North Carolina Republicans on Saturday night drew 1.8 million viewers.

That may not sound like much, but less than half the country can access it on cable.

Fox beat it, but News Max topped MSNBC and CNN. That's nice.

FINALLY, Zubu Brothers reported, "It comes as no surprise to readers that dozens of Baltimore City businesses, located in the Inner Harbor, in a stretch called Fells Point, are threatening the new city government, run by Mayor Brandon Scott, with not paying their taxes because they’re fed up and frustrated with the outburst of violence. 

"In a letter titled Letter to City Leaders From Fells Point Business Leaders, addressed to Mayor Brandon Scott, Council President Nick Mosby, Councilman Zeke Cohen, Madam State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, and Commissioner Michael Harrison, the 37 restaurants and small businesses are threatening to stop paying city taxes and other fees until 'basic and essential municipal services are restored.'"

I would like to see some civil disobedience for a change instead of the mostly peaceful protests that burn buildings in the middle of the night.

So she requested another referral and months later saw a cardiologist who was wonderful, caring, knowledgeable. Also a native American. I don’t care about people’s color or ethnic background, but I do care whether they speak understandable English and how good they are.

  11. Item 3 - Always ask yourself who benefits from exposing the Harris incompetence. Ron Klain is sabotaging Harris. As Biden’s chief of staff, he effectively owns the power of the presidency given Biden’s weak mental condition. The only threat to that is the installation of Harris as POTUS, which would likely eliminate him.

    As long as Klain can put the incompetence of Harris in the spotlight there will be little if any pressure to install her as POTUS. Klain retains his power as long as Biden can fog a mirror.

  14. ITEM 5: Mailed-In Ballots “duplicated by a copying machine” is what some people refer to as “Ballot Harvesting.”

    It was an understatement that took me a long time to grasp.

    If Republicans can’t ensure the legitimacy and validity of elections — one person legally authorized to vote = one vote — the USA’s Constitutional Republic is done.

    The reason why it’s obvious Republicans are not capable of “Ballot Harvesting” (what blunt people call cheating like there’s no tomorrow) with the same high-level of distain for actual democracy and gusto as the Democrats.

    In addition, Republicans know that under the USA’s two-tiered “injustice” system; enforced by America’s Gestapo (FBI) even when a nominal Republican (Bushie) is the Attorney General (Bill Barr, damn him); they will end up in prison for the same acts Democrats are celebrated for in the media.

    1. Ballot Harvesting has had one meaning: The practice of allowing political operatives and others to collect voters’ ballots and turn them in en mass to polling stations.

      Delete
    2. GOP registered voters actually vote. Dem's do not, especially in the blue urban hellholes. They wait until the polls close, determine who hasn't voted, and make up a ballot for them voting for the dem candidate. This was the danger of creating loose unsecured mail in ballots. It made it really easy to do this fraud.

      So the GOP has fewer ballots to do this with than the dems, substantially fewer. Yes there are other scams, "helping" elderly mark their ballots, pretend your soliciting for GOP and then put down the dem, etc.

      What our dem friends should remember, is that most of the GOP voter base does not trust our voting system any longer, and in red states you see politicians listening to this concern and strengthening voting integrity. Once GOP voters conclude their vote is meaningless, and they can do nothing legally to change that, I wouldn't want to be any employee of the federal government going into "enemy territory". The likelihood of not returning home will increase exponentially. And enemy territory is not just red states, it will be pretty much anywhere outside blue urban areas. I'm assuming eastern Oregon will be a dangerous place.

  21. #11 - because school board/committee elections are pretty much captured by the teachers’ unions. They have funding, they control the local PTAs and they run nice “for the children” ads. They get motivated voters while most other voters don’t pay a lot of attention to minor races and vote on name recognition and “for the children”. This is why we need school choice. Political solutions are always suboptimal and subject to political manipulation. Imagine what we’d get if grocery stores were operated in the same manner as public schools.

  29. [Re: Finally]

    I was a university student back in the day, tending bar in Fells Point (before yuppies ruined it) when the eclectic groups of: out-homosexuals, college students, off-duty Johns Hopkins Hospl. Docs and nurses, tranvestites, artsy-fartsies, bikers, jazz aficionados --- all came out on the weekend nights and converged in a get-along mood, as they all mingled on the street that became a pedestrian plaza, on the way to their favorite bars and pub haunts, that catered to their particular groups; at the 'Foot of Broadway' (as my Mother [having grown up in the City], referred to it [the street bisecting Fells Point, ending at the waters of Baltimore Harbor]--- btw, it was deep enough there that the USN moored a missile frigate, at the time, I was working.
    It always had a violent undertone, because it was the city. My Mother always warned me that even as young woman, she was told to avoid that unsavory part of the City. My co-bartender and our doormen were ex-cons [good guys, though] and my boss/owner kept a .45 and a bat under the bar. He took care of (e.g. paid off [$$] the local precinct), so that whenever a fight broke out, we just dialed 911, and placed the receiver on the counter (we never needed to talk into it) and the cops showed up within a minute.
    I used to walk to my car at 3 a.m. (after close/cleanup) waiting at times for a pipe to strike me [as who is on the on the street at that time except someone carrying his/her tip $$?!]. However, it sure was pretty though__ there was a collapsed building of rubble where I parked, and on a warm clear quiet night, I just looked across at the big Domino Sugar sign, like the scene right outta Diner. The City was actually beautiful at that moment. Now, I wouldn't go back there, even with a police escort. ZB
