Highlights of the News

Oh sure, now you want us fat old white men with beards.

ITEM 1: The Lafayette Daily Advertiser reported, "A Louisiana U.S. district judge blocked a federal covid 19 vaccine mandate for health care workers Tuesday, issuing a nationwide injunction in another setback to President Joe Biden's effort to require wide segments of the population to be vaccinated.

"Louisiana Western District U.S. Judge Terry Doughty's decision follows an identical ruling Monday from Missouri U.S. District Judge Matthew Schelp, but Schelp's decision only covered 10 states.

"Doughty ruled on the lawsuit led by Republican Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry and joined by 13 other states, but Doughty added a nationwide injunction in his ruling.

"In his decision, Doughty wrote the Biden Administration doesn't have the authority to bypass Congress in issuing such a mandate."

Trump judge.

 ITEM 2: The New York Post reported, "With just four weeks left in office, Mayor Bill de Blasio is opening the country’s first supervised shooting galleries in Upper Manhattan — amid a spike in overdose deaths and disturbing scenes of junkies shooting up on public sidewalks."

The argument is the War on Drugs failed because people still use drugs.

Under that argument, Chicago should open an actual shooting gallery as the War on Murder has failed because people still kill one another.

DeBlasio calls his shooting gallery an Overdose Prevention Center, Chicago could call its a Murder Conviction Prevention Center.

Democrat DeBlasio is doing all this last-minute stuff at the behest of the new Democrat mayor who can blame DeBlasio.

ITEM 3: WTOP reported, "For the second straight year, enrollment in Virginia public schools has dropped, with 46,000 fewer students enrolled since the start of the covid-19 pandemic.

"According to data from the Virginia Department of Education, the largest school district in the commonwealth, Fairfax County, saw the largest enrollment dip — more than 10,000 students, or a 5.4% difference between fall 2019 and fall 2021.

"The second-largest school district, Prince William County, had 2,135 fewer students enroll, or 2.3%. The third-largest district, Loudoun County, enrolled 2,422 fewer students this year, or 2.9%."

These are liberal DC suburbs. 

People are voting with their feet against CRT, masks, and a boy in a skirt raping girls in the girls' room.

ITEM 4: Drudge's Banner headline, "EPSTEIN PILOT SAYS TRUMP FLEW ON 'LOLITA EXPRESS.'"

Zero Hedge's headline, "Epstein's Pilot Names Names, Recalls Shuttling Clinton, Trump, Spacey And Prince Andrew."

The pilot also named John Glenn and Mitch McConnell.

Zero Hedge said, "Trump and Epstein were known to have associated with each other in the 90s as New York City playboys and successful entrepreneurs. As the Daily Mail reports, 'It was previously reported that Trump had flown on Epstein's plane from Palm Beach, where both had homes, to Newark, in 1997.  Epstein is also said to have flown on one of Trump's private planes.'

"Trump is said to have severed his relationship with Epstein and banned him from Mar-a-Lago after the pedophile was reportedly trying to recruit a towel attendant in the early 2000s - prior to his conviction for soliciting child prostitution."

Friends until Trump discovered the awkward truth.

But liberals will ignore the truth, and believe what liberals want to believe.

ITEM 5: The Washington Examiner reported, "More than 6 million illegal immigrants in the United States would be granted amnesty and allowed to obtain government benefits by House Democrats’ Build Back Better Act, according to a review by the Congressional Budget Office.

"The CBO concluded in November that approximately 6.5 million noncitizens who live in the U.S. largely as a result of illegally crossing the southern border before January 2011 would be granted parole and immediately go from being unlawfully present to lawfully present. The proposal would be the largest-ever amnesty, double the size of the one that went through during the Reagan administration in 1986. The term amnesty refers to being pardoned, in this case for the federal offense of illegally entering the country between ports of entry and residing in the U.S. without permission."

Kick them out.

And by that, I mean Biden, Harris, and every other Democrat in Washington.

ITEM 6: Summit News reported, "University of Oxford Professor Jim Naismith asserts that despite England dropping its mask mandate in July and Scotland keeping its rules in force, official data shows this 'has made no meaningful difference' to infection rates.

"Naismith goes on to argue that new face mask mandates imposed in England today are “unlikely to have much of an impact” in fighting off the spread of the Omicron variant.

"Despite flatlining case numbers and declining deaths, partly achieved because England chose to lift lockdown restrictions in the summer unlike many European countries, mask mandates are once again back in force."

Well, "has made no meaningful difference" applies to just about every government aid program nowadays. 

ITEM 7: We Are The Mighty reported, "The Royal Navy’s stealth sub can stay submerged for 25 years."

Maybe the Brits can take Kamala and AOC on a little sea cruise.

ITEM 8: Breitbart reported, "Actor-comedian Dave Chappelle won another small battle with his woke detractors after his former high school announced it would rename its theater after him despite the backlash.

"Washington D.C.’s Duke Ellington School of the Arts announced that it is going through with naming one of its theaters after Chapelle, one of its most famous alums."

This whole Cancel Chappelle sounds phony to me.

When did Netflix stop being PC?

ITEM 9: Via Press California, Forbes magazine reported, "‘Yes, the vaccine changes your DNA. A tiny bit. That’s a good thing.’"

Forbes has gone from being a capitalist tool to being a deep-state stooge.

ITEM 10: The New American reported, "The 'Arctic is screaming,' a U.S. government warming-alarmist scientist famously stated in 2010. It turns out this may be true, but what it’s saying is, 'I’m freezing!'

"In fact, in yet another refutation of the man-caused global-warming (AGW) narrative — and contrary to alarmist predictions — Arctic ice is poised to be its thickest in a generation."

Folks, we may be headed for an ice age.

ITEM 11: The Daily Mail reported, "Chris Cuomo's colleagues in the liberal media have turned on him in the wake of bombshell records revealing how he conspired with his brother's team to undermine sexual harassment accusers, and are now among those calling for him to be fired."

The story also said, "Journalists and some politicians are now calling for Cuomo to be fired immediately, calling his actions 'deeply unethical'.  CNN's hosts and reporters are pussyfooting around it, only saying Cuomo was 'more intimately involved than previously known.'"

Three things are fictional: Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, and Ethics in Journalism.

But CNN suspended him, making him the first TV news guy to lose his job for something other than sexual harassment.

The real reason he's gone? He no longer has a brovernor.

CHYRONS OF THE DAY: Tucker Carlson may never top "Creepy Porn Lawyer" but...

...he keeps coming close.

ITEM 12: AP reported, "A 14-year-old Philadelphia boy waiting for a bus to take him home from school was shot 18 times and killed Monday afternoon, police said.

"Samir Jefferson was waiting at a bus stop shortly before 3:30 p.m. Monday in a North Philadelphia neighborhood when two unknown shooters fired at least 36 shots, a Philadelphia police spokesperson said in an emailed incident report.

"Police said Jefferson was shot 18 times throughout his body. The boy died at a local hospital a short time later."

Killadelphia.

Well, he was outside during a dangerous time: In broad daylight.

ITEM 13: The Washington Post reported, "Lara Logan draws outrage for comparing Fauci to Nazi doctor Josef Mengele on Fox News."

Where was the outrage when people called President Trump Hitler?

ITEM 14: The Wall Street Journal reported, "Alumni Withhold Donations, Demand Colleges Enforce Free Speech. Some baby boomers push back against what they see as liberal indoctrination at their schools."

Money talks. Shit gets tenure.

ITEM 15: CNBC reported, "Cyber Monday online sales drop 1.4% from last year to $10.7 billion, falling for the first time ever."

CNBC also reported, "Black Friday shopping in stores drops 28% from pre-pandemic levels as shoppers spread spending throughout the season."

Red may be the new black for retailers this year.

ITEM 16AP reported, "Oklahoma’s Pardon and Parole Board voted 4-1 on Tuesday to reject clemency for a man convicted of killing two Del City hotel workers in 2001, with two members noting the particularly heinous nature of the killings.

"The vote paves the way for the state to execute 45-year-old Donald Grant on Jan. 27 unless a court intervenes.

"Grant admitted killing Brenda McElyea and Felicia Suzette Smith, both employees of the LaQuinta Inn in Del City, so that there would be no witnesses to his robbery of the hotel. Both women were shot and stabbed, and court records show Grant also repeatedly bludgeoned McElyea as she begged Grant to spare her life."

Execution is more humane than life in prison. Perhaps the pandemic panic brought that point home.

ITEM 17AP also reported, "Dr. Mehmet Oz, the celebrity heart surgeon best known as the host of TV’s Dr. Oz Show after rocketing to fame on Oprah Winfrey’s show, is planning to run for Pennsylvania’s open U.S. Senate seat as a Republican, according to three people familiar with his plans.

"Should Oz run, he would bring his unrivaled name recognition and wealth to a wide-open race that is expected to be among the nation’s most competitive and could determine control of the Senate in next year’s election."

I have the campaign slogan.

Send Oz to Oz.

ITEM 18: Instapundit reported, "Fifteen states, led by West Virginia Treasurer Riley Moore, are prepared to yank an estimated $600 billion in funds from financial institutions contemplating defunding the oil and gas industry in the U.S, according to The Federalist.

"The 15 states include in addition to West Virginia, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Louisiana, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Carolina, South Dakota, Utah, Wyoming, Alabama, Texas and Kentucky. Hmmm, wonder why Oklahoma — where Harold Hamm, the guy who invented hydraulic fracking, grew up — is not on that list?"

Nice to see West Virginia lead instead of follow.

FINALLY, reader comments yesterday made me reconsider donating to the Salvation Army after its apology. I have some time before Christmas. OK, what are the alternatives to helping the neediest cases?

    3. After Epstein's trial, when the government pretended he only sought sex with one hooker who was underage, the victims retained Bradley Edwards to sue Epstein. Trump was the only major figure who came forward voluntarily - without subpoena - to tell what he knew about Epstein. Edwards praised Trump for stepping up and being helpful. https://youtu.be/iWvOyrf_OQs

      Note also that Trump kicked millionaire Epstein out of Mar A Lago around 2005 on the word of a 16 year old girl. That's right. He believed the victim before it was politically correct.

  4. 9 -- Forbes then proceeded to stealth-change the headline about changing DNA, as documented at The Blaze, changing it to "Covid Vaccines Don’t Alter Your DNA – They Help Choose Cells To Strengthen Your Immune Response."

    The Blaze then claimed, "the old headline was accurate. COVID vaccines do alter your DNA — indirectly, by triggering the body's natural response to fight off disease. It's not harmful; in fact, it helps people by reducing the chance that you'll become seriously ill from COVID-19."

    Unfortunately for the Blaze, there is ample evidence that the jabs reduce overall immunity against viruses in general and all too often have frightening heart-related and other side effects.

  5. My recommendation? I think Samaritan's Purse is good. Also, your local food bank. NOT United Way. And there's always denominational programs and even local church work. There's a Baptist group called Eight Days of Hope that does disaster recovery with 99% volunteers. There may even be a local shelter, even one run by the Salvation Army (like Union Mission in Memphis, TN) that could use help directly.

  9. Your local Visiting Nurse Association always has families who need help with shelter, heat, clothing, or food. They act as a go-between for donor and recipient to provide anonimity on both sides. I've never heard of them siphoning off any "operating expenses". Local food banks accept cash donations, which they turn into grocery store gift cards so folks can buy some ground beef to go with all of the Hamburger Helper that gets donated. Toys for Tots by the Marine Corps is a very highly rated charity. The Gary Sinese Foundation helps wounded veterans. I like to start as close to home as I can so that's the order I listed may favored charities in.

  13. Don, assuming your local United Way has not gotten into defunding the scouts aways back, they are always a good consideration. Low overhead, roughly 90% of dollars getting to the agencies who can provide help. And if you have someone you need to not get funding, they will make sure your funds are not co-mingled into that agency - like for instance the S.A.

    2. Actually they are exceedingly efficient with roughly 90% of donated moneys going to programs and agencies. One of the actual best. This is not to say there may not be a local chapter that does worse.

  19. Finally: “what are the alternatives to helping the neediest cases?” I suggest using CharityNavigator.org. They make it easy to find good charities with their “Top Ten Lists” and “4-Star Charities” links, or if you want to donate to a good local charity, you can use their Advanced Search to locate local charities by type (religious, human services like shelters and food banks, etc). For example, a search for “human services” in WV brings up six charities: one with 4 stars (the best), one with 3 stars, one with 2 stars, one with 1 star, and two with a “High Advisory” (likely scams). Searching for a religious charity in WV brings up only one, which has a “High Alert.”

    What does Charity Navigator say about the Salvation Army? “We don't evaluate The Salvation Army. Why not? Many religious organizations are exempt under Internal Revenue Code from filing the Form 990. As a result, we lack sufficient data to evaluate their financial health.”

And, as it turns, out it was the right approach. The rest of the western democracies chose lockdowns and other restrictive measures and the results never really changed anything. They were only "we are doing something" measures and the problem is they want to keep going back to them.

    4. T.O., I think 2018 was a dry run for the 2020 election fraud with both Florida and Georgia. Both Gillum and Tank Abrams were adamant that they had won. I'm sure they were told it was a sure thing. In 2020 Florida wasn't in place to put up with the shenanigans that Georgia did. It would have been great if they had tried. DeSantis would have blown the roof off the Dems country wide scam!!!

  32. FINALLY, what are the alternatives to helping the neediest cases?

    Filed under "Charity Begins at Home", for some years now, our choice has been to help the needy through our Church. Local churches are far better able to keep a watchful eye on those asking for assistance. (As an aside, when my wife chaired our Benevolence Committee, we made it a policy to NEVER give people cash. Assistance was always provided via gift cards or direct payments to creditors, ie, power, phone, etc.) Never forget, the Welfare State made huge strides when the Churches decided to forgo the Biblical mandate to care for the poor and needy and relinquished their responsibility to The State.

  36. In response to Don's call for good causes that support our neediest cases, my lovely wife and I serve with Uplift Northwest, which helps transition homeless people in Seattle to housing through jobs.

    https://connect.clickandpledge.com/Organization/upliftnorthwest/Campaign/P2P2021/Fundraiser/AnneSchlosser/

    Amidst Seattle's crisis of more than 10,000 homeless, Uplift Northwest is one of only a couple of bright spots in the community's efforts (the other is buying bus tickets for homeless people to go where they have family to take them in). Uplift Northwest is the region's largest temporary staffing agency and helps thousands of people a year, including hundreds who move into stable housing, with jobs, job-training services, food, laundry and hygiene facilities, job-specific shoes and clothes, transportation, and eyeglasses.

    It's easy to support Uplift Northwest -- one of the few programs that's actually making a difference.

    "Uplift Northwest is making a difference to people experiencing homelessness and poverty in the Seattle area. By providing jobs and job readiness services, they help individuals build stability and self-worth. I believe in this mission -- so I provide my time and talent as a board member, and personal funds -- to help change lives."

    Amazon is sponsoring the 2021 We Believe campaign to support Uplift Northwest's successful approach to Seattle's homelessness crisis.

    1. I have a concrete block that can stay submerged for 100 years. Easy to submerge a sub for 25 years, as long as on one is in it.

    2. Good point Fellers...the Edmund Fitzgerald has been down for 41 years now. I'm thinking it could be a few more years before it surfaces!!! Call Gordon if it does...

  40. #3: demographics are also a part. At least here in Wisconsin, we're seeing a 'birth dearth' going back about 20 years. Lots of implications for colleges, except for tax-supported ones, which will remain open with only ONE student.

  42. Contributions:
    Start with local. Your local church. Check with friends about good food pantries, veteran organizations, etc.
    I'm Catholic but have stopped anything going to national-level (or even diocesan-level) Catholic charities. Samaritan's Purse gets a share that would've gone to them.
    As much as possible everything is local.
    (As an aside, when I was in grade school our family was recipient of food baskets and gifts at Christmas from the Knights of Columbus. First time I ever saw my dad cry.)

  43. I checked the camp out with a little girl who had a heart transplant not long after her birth. She loves the camp and the only requirement to attend is to sign up.

  44. When I was really sick with cancer 10 years ago somebody organized a go fund me which really helped me and my family. I survived and recovered. Since that time I’ve been giving it back little by little and have given back more than I got. Find a couple of them at random that are worthy. You know exactly where the money is going and aren’t paying for some bloated CEO salary.

  45. I'm near the navy town of Bremerton, home of PSNS, the largest of the public shipyards. There are a lot of horror stories about the United Way with respect to the Federal Combined Charity campaign. Dedicated donations to a charity would be included in the % of the general donation, basically discounting out the dedicated ones. They gypped the Scouts regularly when they were good. The local United Way chapter is run like a fiefdom with the head of a Charity getting over 200K. Please avoid them. Look for organizations that get great bang for the buck.

    One I have supported for decades is Hospice, typically all of the nurses are volunteer so the donations pay for supplies, greatly extending the dollars given.

    Yes Forbes was great when Malcolm ran it, the son was OK, but he was the one that opened the gates, turning a great magazine into another Newsweek.

    Rush had those parody ads where the guy bought Newsweek for $1, not the issue but the entire magazine - cracked me up.

  46. I’m making over $15k a month working online. I kept seeing how some people are able to earn a lot of money online, so I decided to look into it. I had luck to stumble upon something that totally changed my life. After 2 months of searching, last month I received a paycheck for $15376 for just working on the laptop for a few hours weekly. I was amazed how easy it was after I tried it. Copy below webOpen This Website ↠↠↠ Www.live124.com

  47. In Item 4: "But liberals will ignore the truth, and believe what liberals want to believe."

    Fair enough viz how liberals will view Trump no matter what.

    I don't get the feeling most liberals are willing to countenance the notion that the Clintons are world class perverts and criminals so I suspect they will give Trump a pass too.

    Or maybe they can both deplore Trump travelling with Epstein to NYC whilst simultaneously ignoring Clinton's far more frequent flights to Pedo Island.

    In which case what you wrote is doubly true: "But liberals will ignore the truth, and believe what liberals want to believe."

  50. I get paid over $87 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I'd be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless.
