Highlights of the News

ITEM 1: Matt Drudge bragged that he had 594,114,300 page views in May.

That is down from 1,470,000,000 page views in July 2016 when he supported Donald John Trump. That's a 60% drop in 5 years.

For links to breaking conservative news stories, try Citizen Free Press, Instapundit, Lucianne, and Pro Trump News,

For the latest BS from MSM, go to the Drudge Report. Pretend it is still July 2016.

Remember, Drudge did not just dump on Trump. Drudge dumped on Trump's supporters.

ITEM 2: The Jerusalem Post reported, "Hamas worked on a device to disrupt the Iron Dome missile-defense system in the same Gaza building that housed the Associated Press and was bombed by Israel during Operation Guardian of the Walls, Ambassador to the UN and US Gilad Erdan said Monday night.

"He relayed the information, in coordination with the IDF, to AP CEO Gary Pruitt and the news agency’s vice president for foreign news, Ian Phillips, in New York.

"Hamas had intelligence and technological research and development offices in the building Israel struck last month, Erdan said. Israel gave advance warning for the strike, and no one was killed."

Hamas never warns anyone when it indiscriminately fires rockets at Israel, knowing at least one in 10 rockets will misfire and kill at least one Palestinian, often a child.

ITEM 3: We Love Trump reported, "Kamala Harris Hands Out Cookies Made in Her Own Likeness, Gets Mocked by Twitter."

She looks like an NPC!

Her staff is sabotaging her. She must be a monster to work for.

ITEM 4: India Today reported, "Hydroxychloroquine, the malaria drug touted as a magical Covid-19 cure by former US President Donald Trump last year, has been found effective in a prophylactic study published in the Journal of The Association of Physicians of India (JAPI) last week.

"The study showed that hydroxychloroquine, popularly known as HCQ, could prevent SARS-CoV-2 infection in varying degrees depending on its dosing regimen. The highest prevention rate of 72% was found among those given hydroxychloroquine over six weeks or a longer duration.

"The study said, 'when adjusted for other risk factors, HCQ dose as per government recommendations, 2-3, 4-5, 6 or more weeks reduced the probability of Covid positivity by 34%, 48% and 72%.'

"The study was conducted May-September last year when HCQ was still part of the Union health ministry’s recommendation in treatment protocol for Covid-19."

600,000 people died in the USA because of covid 19.

Easily 10% could have been saved by HCQ.

The media and the FDA lied, and 60,000 Americans died.

That's more than the number of American men killed in Vietnam.

That is 20 times as many Americans as died in 9/11.

No shame. No apology. They are power-mongers who see Donald John Trump as their enemy, not Chairman Xi.

They may be evil, but they are not wrong. Trump poses a threat to the Maoists in the media.

ITEM 5: Power Line reported, "Hence ProPublica’s blockbuster story out today on the taxes of the super rich ought to be raising not just eyebrows (for its economic illiteracy), but a major Department of Justice investigation as to how ProPublica came into possession of supposedly private and confidential IRS data on individual taxpayers."

IRS records are supposed to be private.

In breaking that confidentiality -- this time the victims are Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, Rupert Murdoch and Mark Zuckerberg -- the IRS put the entire citizenry on notice. No one is safe.

This was not a leak.

This was a warning from Josef Biden, comrade.

ITEM 6: NBC reported, "A Virginia teacher must be reinstated from leave after telling the school board he wouldn’t address transgender students by their pronouns, a judge ruled.

"The court granted Tanner Cross’ request for a temporary injunction, saying the school district must allow him to return to his position and stop banning him from Loudoun County Public Schools property.

"Judge James E. Plowman Jr. wrote that he granted the injunction because Cross' rights to speech and religious liberty are central to the case."

Elected judge.

That is the best way to go.

UPDATE: Appointed.

ITEM 7: Glenn Reynolds reported, "Ford Building More Mustang Mach-E EVs Than Gas-Powered Mustangs. Maybe someone should start building electrical power plants to power these."

Good idea.

I have no intention of buying one because I prefer a safe, clean, efficient internal combustion engine.

The only place fit for one of those AC/DC automobiles is driving down the Highway to Hell.

ITEM 8: Not the Bee reported, "Whiteness is a 'parasitic condition' that has no 'permanent cure,' according to a new paper in the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association."

The only systemic racism in America is against white people.

Hitler scapegoated the Jews. Scapegoating white people will not end well.

ITEM 9: Word of the day: Faucism.

The use of junk science to impose a totalitarian state on the people.

ITEM 10: Just the News reported, "A federal judge has approved a lawsuit by a group of Virginia parents who alleged a new racial-diversity admission policy by one of the state's top-ranked high schools is discriminatory.

"Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, in northern Virginia, overhauled its admissions process in March, with processes to admit students based on racial diversity. 

"The school is ranked the best U.S. high school last month by News and World Report, according to The Daily Wire.

"A parents' group of mostly Asian Americans, the Coalition for TJ, alleges Asian students are disadvantaged by the new admissions policy.

"U.S. District Judge Claude Hilton on Friday approved the lawsuit, saying, 'Everybody knows the policy is not race-neutral, and that it’s designed to affect the racial composition of the school.'"

Brown v. Board of Education is still the law of the land.

Reagan judge.

ITEM 11: News Medical reported, "No point vaccinating those who’ve had covid 19: Findings of Cleveland Clinic study."


Also, masks with holes 10 times larger than the virus do not stop the spread of covid 19.

ITEM 12: Via Breitbart, Obama said, "I think we have to worry when one of our major political parties is willing to embrace a way of thinking about our democracy that would be unrecognizable and unacceptable even five years ago or a decade ago. When you look at some of the laws that are being passed at the state legislative level where legislators are basically saying we are going to take away the certification of election process from civil servants, secretary of states, people who are just counting ballots, partisan legislatures who may or may not decide a states electoral votes should go to one person or another. And when that’s all done against the backdrop of large numbers of Republicans having been convinced wrongly that there was something fishy about the last election, we’ve got a problem."

He should just shut the hell up.

He is an anti-American Marxist who hates white people, and like his pastor, Jeremiah Wright, he hates Jews and believes America deserved 9/11 because of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

By the way, Tucker Carlson trounced Obama in the ratings. 3 million watched Carlson. 

1.4 million watched Obama on CNN in their head-to-head matchup.

ITEM 13The Epoch Times reported, "Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who has signaled opposition to several Democrat-proposed voting bills and ending the filibuster, said he won’t budge on a sweeping bill to overhaul federal elections after he met with civil rights groups.

"'There was nothing basically for or against … basically everyone’s position was discussed,' Manchin told reporters on Tuesday after meeting with NAACP President Derrick Johnson, Al Sharpton, National Urban League president Marc Morial, and others.

"When asked about whether he would support the For the People Act bill, the Democrat senator said, 'No, I don’t think anybody changed positions on that,' according to The Hill."

One theory from readers is Manchin is not alone and that other Democrat senators silently support him.

Democrats should regret rigging the January 5 runoff elections that gave the party the Senate. I told readers I did not care who won control of the Senate, but now I love watching progressives go berserk over holding Congress and being unable to get anything done.

ITEM 14: The New York Times lied, "Senate Republicans on Tuesday blocked debate on a bill to combat pay discrimination against women and L.G.B.T.Q. workers, the first in a series of votes set up by Democratic leaders this month to highlight the power of the filibuster to stop even the consideration of legislation.

"The Paycheck Fairness Act, which failed, 49 to 50, was never going to get the 60 votes needed to overcome a filibuster and bring it to the Senate floor under existing rules. The bill, which passed the House in April, has been on the Democratic wish list since 1997."

Equal pay has been the law of the land since 1963.

And if this bill were on the Democrat wish list, why did they not make it the law in 2009 or 2010 when they controlled both houses of Congress.

I look at people who believe NYT with amusement. They always are so smug, and so sure that they are smarter than the riff-raff.

ITEM 15: The New York Post reported, "Vice President Kamala Harris on Tuesday snapped at an interviewer when he pressed her on why she hasn’t visited the southern border in the 76 days since President Biden put her in charge of the record-smashing illegal immigration crisis — snarking that she hasn’t been to Europe, either."

Dimmer than Biden.

ITEM 16: The Daily Mail reported, "EXCLUSIVE: Hunter Biden addressed his white lawyer as 'n***a' multiple times, used phrases like 'true dat n***a' and bantered 'I only love you because you're black,' in shocking texts unearthed days after Joe's emotional Tulsa speech decrying racism."

Once upon a time, the Drudge Report would have been all over that story, which would have forced MSM to carry it.

I hope he got more than 30 pieces of silver.

ITEM 17: Slate reported, "Los Angeles County officials have decided that they’ve had it with peacocks. Southern California residents have long considered the feral population of beautiful blue birds a nuisance, and the onset of the pandemic meant that peacock relocation programs were paused for months, leading the population to grow even more.

"As residents have spent more time at home in the past year, the peacocks have become increasingly visible (and, to some, annoying), and many Pasadena residents are at wits’ end. According to the Washington Post, Los Angeles County officials are now preparing to prohibit the feeding of peacocks in an attempt to curb the population."

NBC hardest hit.

ITEM 18: How do we know the UFOs are from Red China? Marik von Rennenkampff wrote a column for The Hill denying it.

He wrote, "clues are beginning to emerge that a leading theory for the military’s UFO encounters – advanced Chinese aircraft – is increasingly unlikely."

He served as an analyst with the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of International Security and Nonproliferation, as well as an Obama administration appointee at the U.S. Department of Defense.

Which means he is as big a liar as Tony Fauci, who covered up Red China's use of covid 19 as a biological warfare weapon.

There are more Maoists in Washington than there are in Beijing.

ITEM 19: Breitbart reported, "Alyssa Milano is considering a bid for the U.S. House of Representatives in the state of California in 2024.

"Milano, a staunch supporter of President Joe Biden, teased her potential campaign in an interview with The Hill published Tuesday."

Her opponent would be Republican Congressman Tom McClintock.

Well, we will see who's the boss next year.

ITEM 20: CNN reported, "Lordstown Motors, the startup electric truck maker, warned Tuesday it is close to running out of cash and may be forced out of business in the next year."

Bu-bye, 1,500 manufacturing jobs.

Meanwhile, Mountain State Spotlight reported, "With the Mylan plant closing, Morgantown wonders what’s next?"

That's another 1,500 manufacturing jobs.

Under Donald John Trump, factories opened.

Under Josef Biden, they close.

ITEM 21: The Akron Beacon Journal reported, "Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost has filed a lawsuit asking a court to declare Google a public utility that should be regulated as such."

While they are at it, add Twitter, Facebook, and Reddit to the list of regulated utilities.

ITEM 22: BizPac Review reported, "Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich and Scottsdale, Arizona residents are furious over the Biden administration converting a local hotel into an ICE detention center that will house hundreds of illegal aliens.

"Brnovich castigated federal government leaders over the move that positions the facility near schools and a senior living facility. Two hundred angry residents protested Saturday against the development and no public input was requested. The Scottsdale Police Department didn’t even get a say in the matter and were only notified of the decision the day before the illegal aliens were transferred."

They would not be furious if Brnovich had done his job, safeguarded the ballot box, and kept Democrats from stealing the election.

This is just showboating.

ITEM 23: Breitbart reported, "Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) released a video Tuesday highlighting that Vice President Kamala Harris has not visited the U.S. southern border since being tapped more than two months ago to oversee the border crisis.

"Boebert was in McAllen, Texas, with a delegation last week where she created the video depicting the Colorado congresswoman walking along a border barrier carrying a cardboard cutout of Harris in lieu of the vice president’s real live visit."

Laughter is the best medicine.

Mockery is the best politics.

ITEM 24: The Washington Times reported, "Washington state is offering free marijuana joints this week to residents who get their COVID-19 vaccine shots. The state’s Liquor and Cannabis Board is temporarily allowing state-licensed cannabis retailers to give one joint to adults who receive a shot at an in-store vaccination clinic under the Joints for Jabs promotion."

A disease so deadly that you have to get people stoned to vaccinate them.

ITEM 25: Jacob Palmieri reported, "A new primary poll for Alaska Senate found RINO Senator Lisa Murkowski down big.

"Her challenger Kelly Tshibaka (R) is at 39%.

"Murkowski sits at only 19%."

She may wish to consider retirement.

FINALLY, Mara Gay of the New York Times told MSNBC about a traumatic experience this weekend.

She saw a pickup truck.

Not only that, but it had an American flag.

Its driver seemed to be a Trump supporter.

Gay said, "The reality is here that we have a large percentage of the American population -- I don't know how big it is, but we have tens of millions of Trump voters who continue to believe that their rights as citizens are under threat by simple virtue of having to share the democracy with others. I think as long as they see Americanness as the same as one with whiteness, this is going to continue. We have to figure out how to get every American a place at the table in this democracy, but how to separate Americanness, America, from whiteness. Until we can confront that and talk about that, this is really going to continue.

"I was on Long Island this weekend, visiting a really dear friend and I was really disturbed. I saw, you know, dozens and dozens of pickup trucks with expletives against Joe Biden on the back of them, Trump flags, and in some cases, just dozens of American flags, which is also just disturbing, which essentially the message was clear, this is my country. This is not your country. I own this.

"And so until we're ready to have that conversation, this is going to continue. What really is concerning to me as well is, it's not just Democrats in Congress. I think there's a large percentage of Americans, even some of my colleagues in journalism, who are invested in some way in pretending that this isn't the threat that it is. That is the real concern. Because, you know, the Trump voters who are not going to get onboard with democracy, they're a minority. You can marginalize them, long-term. But if we don't take the threat seriously, then I think we're all in really bad shape."

NYT Inc. tried a cleanup, tweeting, "New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay's comments on MSNBC have been irresponsibly taken out of context. Her argument was that Trump and many of his supporters have politicized the American flag. The attacks on her today are ill-informed and grounded in bad-faith."

The problem for NYT Inc. is that we took her in context.

We have a problem, America. Too many liberals are too self-righteous and too unwilling to compromise on anything, so sure that they are right about everything. That is the real threat to our beloved constitutional republic.

By the way, whatever happened to minority rights?


  1. Honk if you used to love Alyssa’s boobies.

  2. 14 - the NYTimes is so bad, I don’t think I would believe their crossword puzzles anymore.

    15 - there were two dummies in that interview. Lester Dolt was the reporter. Horizontal followed her answer with a cackle. Disgusting.

    FINALLY - see item 14.

  3. minority rights have disappeared like so many other things that was a part of our Republic. Joe Manchin's email format actually says Republic yet he can't bring himself to say the word. How much more must we take before we despise democracy as our for fathers did?

  4. The Democrats made up at least 20 million Biden/Harris votes out of thin air, as will eventually be proven.

  5. Item 15 - I’d bet a lot of money that Harris has been given this assignment by Ron Klain, Biden’s chief of staff who effectively operates as POTUS. His objective is to retain his power and the best way to do that (as long as Biden is alive) is to make Harris appear incompetent.

    While that is an admittedly easy task, putting her in charge of the border spotlights her incompetence. Klain is like most people - once given power one never wants to let go of it.

    1. Exactly! No one will dare invoke the 25th Amendment against Biden with Harris waiting in the wings.

    2. Harris is Biden insurance as Biden was Obama insurance

  6. And if this bill were on the Democrat wish list, why did they not make it the law in 2009 or 2010 when they controlled both houses of Congress.
    AND 60 votes in the Senate - filibuster proof.

  7. Item 16 - Imagine if the name Hunter Biden was replaced by Donald Trump, Jr…..

  8. #18 - Advanced Chinese military aircraft? So who did they copy it from - the Martians, the Grays...?

  9. Item 1 - I like 'The Liberty Daily'. It's like the old Drudge in steroids.

  10. W would strongly recommend The links there are very newsy, free of excess, and well presented. I like it better than I ever did Drudge.

  11. Finally. Displaying the Flag is politication.
    Burning the Flag is speech.
    Who woulda thunk

  12. Item 14: As i keep saying, I despise, detest, and totally distrust the media, and especially the NYT and the WaPoo.

    Item 17: I lived in a place some years ago near where some people had peacocks. Peacocks SCREEEEEEEECH.

    Finally: I live in a rural area. We sold our cars and bought a pickup. Put a magnetic US Flag on the drop-down door. Mary Gay needs a long vacation. I'd bet she'd LOOOOOOVE a two-week vacation in Moscow.

    1. Then two weeks in China or better yet, North Korea, then send her to Venezuela.

    2. I'm told that peacock is all white meat. Is that racist?

  13. Item 4: “hydroxychloroquine, popularly known as HCQ, could prevent SARS-CoV-2 infection” For prevention, the dosing regimen is 200 mg once a day for 5 days, then once a week, according to Other preventative measures can be found here:

    Item 5: Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, Rupert Murdoch and Mark Zuckerberg are among those paying zero income tax. Biden has promised to double these billionaires’ taxes.

    Item 15: Yes, Harris is dimmer than Biden. But remember, these two are the best the Dems have to offer for President and Vice President.

    1. Two times zero is still zero.

    2. Oh for the day when nothing was worth nothing, but it was free.

  14. I saw an American flag on Monday and cried.

    It was draped over the casket of a WWII Navy vet who passed away at 95. I held it together until they removed the white cloth in the Catholic church and a retired naval officer replaced it with the flag that he fought to protect with his life.

  15. “Politicized the American flag.”

    1. As many have noted in recent years, the left intentionally gave up the flag; we didn't, and now they complain about the outcome of their own actions (again).

  16. 'Morning, fellow curling enthusiasts...

    3 - "She must be a monster to work for." This is actually something that just always prints - leftists are egocentric jerks who are awful to the people around them (both regular and incidental), while conservatives are great to the people around them. I've heard that from so many "people around them" over the years - both in the US and in the UK.

    5 - "This was not a leak." Whatever it was, as Prof. Reynolds noted yesterday, have you noticed how these leaks/breaches are always helpful to the left?

    8 - "Hitler scapegoated the Jews. Scapegoating white people will not end well." And Stalin (and Kaganovich) scapegoated the kulaks. One reason I mention that is because that's an interesting shift for the left - they used to scapegoat people only on class/social grounds (like Stalin and the kulaks), but were always insistent that THEY didn't scapegoat on RACIAL grounds - yet now they do; among other things, this demonstrates that contrary to leftist self-propaganda, communism and nazism are two peas in the same pod. (And note that the nazis scapegoated the Jews on social/class grounds rather than racial grounds... long story but the left tries to change this history for their own benefit.)

    9 - "The use of junk science to impose a totalitarian state on the people." I also call it an effort to turn "science" from a search for truth into being a streetwalker for marxism...

    10 - "Brown v. Board of Education is still the law of the land." Racial quotas are also explicitly banned by the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

    13 - "... go berserk over holding Congress and being unable to get anything done." Well, be sure to tell them that we feel their pain on this one... :-)

    15 - I still think that if they decide to defenestrate sniffy, they will defenestrate giggles first - they will put their actual choice in to the VP slot in place of giggles before defenestrating sniffy, not after.

    20 - The problem though is that these aren't "real" jobs - in the sense that they respond to real market demands and real investments. They are jobs subsidized by an ideological attempt to override the laws of physics. Stop this nonsense and let's have real investment (and real jobs), please.

    23 - Rep. Boebert has clearly studied her alinsky well. Hopefully she is now preparing for the next phase by studying chairman mao's "little red book"...

    25 - Hopefully it can work this time; she got primaried-out a few years back, but then ran as an independent and (with leftist votes) won. Alaska deserves better than her.

  17. A more important point about the HCQ regimen. Not only does it prevent Covid, it also, if administered when first symptoms manifest, CURES Covid. And it does so with minimum disruption to a persons life

    What this means is that this pandemic could have been ended by Autumn of 2020. What should have been done is maintain quarantine of the most vulnerable, say, everyone over 65. Then make HCQ readily available to everyone else. And then tell everybody to go about their daily lives without restrictions
    And the instant the obvious flu-cold symptoms of Covid manifest, do the HCQ regime. Voila, herd immunity!!

    Of course, older people, to include my elderly self would also have access to HCQ, but there are some elderly whose immune system are so weak, that Covid would get them eventually .. so some quarantine would still be necessary

    1. Survival rate is 99.7%.

      No pandemic, Jeffery. Hardly a bad cold.

      Call it what it is. The Faux Joe Plague

  18. Isn't it rather racist to assume all pickup drivers with flags are white? Trump had/has plenty of non-white supporters!

    1. Hispanic Trump supporters are white Hispanics. Asian Trump supporters are White Asians. Black Trump supporters are Uncle Toms, and White Trump supporters are Nazis.

  19. Item 6. Virginia doesn’t elect judges. They are appointed by the General Assembly.

  20. Re #1: Drudge is down 60 percent? That is shocking. I thought it would be more, much more. He is doing a much better job of holding onto his audience than the Oscars or the NBA.

  21. remember HQC was BANNED as a treatment by the AMA and CDC (i may have my groups mixed up but it was banned) those that banned it should be tried for murder

    1. I had a conversation with my PCP early in the pandemic. It went something like this:
      Me: Are you prescribing HCQ for COVID symptoms?
      Doc: I’m not allowed to.
      Me: It’s a drug approved by the FDA. You can prescribe any approved drug for any off-label use.
      Doc: Insurance won’t cover it.
      Me: It’s 20c a tablet at full retail price. I can afford that.
      Doc: No, MY insurance won’t cover it. I’ve received a letter from my insurance carrier saying that if I prescribe HCQ for COVID and the patient has an adverse reaction or dies, my malpractice insurance won’t cover me.
      Me: Okay, so if I start coughing and running a fever, I have to come in with a complaint of malaria?
      Doc: Yep, THEN I can prescribe it to you.

  22. Donald John Trump is still our president.

    3: She also has 2 (ahem) pearl necklaces.

    4: Trump poses a threat to the Maoists in the country.


    5: the IRS put the entire citizenry on notice. No one is safe.

    The average working stiff knows it already. As with the Deep State Dwarf, this is for the Zucks who think they are immune.

    8: Scapegoating white people will not end well.

    Tell me.

    Except for Lefties, white people are armed.

    9: Ya gotta love it, right?

    12: They're scared. We didn't crawl into a hole. We fought back. You hear the word, reinstatement, these days.

    When in the course of human events...

    13: I love the smell of schaudenfreude in the morning.

    15: This just keeps getting better. She's actually starting to show the wear and tear of being President of Vice.

    19: Nifty.

    21: A lot of thinking in this direction has been going on.

    23: No need. Chlamydia is a cardboard cutout.

    25: Welcome to the party, pal.

    FINALLY: Makes ya proud to be an American, don't it?

  23. #3. Our VP has No staff member who has been with her for longer than a year or two, in spite of being in public dis service for years and years.

    It tells you she is a b1tch to work with.

  24. Federal Wealth and income taxes are prohibited by the constitution.

    It took a constitutional amendment to allow an income tax. Only on the rich, of course.

    Does anyone think there is any chance at all to pass a constitutional amendment permitting a wealth tax?

    Until people start talking about an amendment, it is just ignorant or duplicitous talk. Or maybe ignorant and duplicitous talk

  25. #25 Murkowski has been down this road before. When she lost her primary then, she ran as an Independent and won. I wouldn't count her out as much as we'd like to.

  26. Thank you Don for a terrific column. I especially appreciated ITEM 1 both for its reporting of the fleeing of readers from the Drudge Report and your suggested alternatives.

    I also have one other observation.

    In regard to ITEM 24, I’m surprised the very Progressive/Liberal Federal Government and/or some of the more Liberal/Libertarian dominated states have not begun offering “free” BJs (aka oral sex) to those willing to take the vaccination.

    I’m certain several of your readers are aware of a certain VP who appears to be in way over their head who is more than capable (some may even claim the VP is a pro) at this particular activity.

    Just wait, in less than 10 years prostitution will be legalized, heavily taxed, and those tax funds “earmarked” for public schools, because it is “all for the children.”

  27. 4. "600,000 people died in the USA because of covid 19."
    Please stop parroting this myth. We will never know the exact figure because of the conflation of "died from/died with" conflation, but it is definitely much lower by orders of magnitude. Probably in line with the seasonal flu.
