Highlights of the News

There is nothing to buy under Bidenomics.

ITEM 1: Via Kane at Citizen Free Press, Bill Kristol tweeted, "A big spending bill with many new programs has failed in the Senate. Not the end of the world.

"Biden is still president. Democrats still control the Senate. Republicans are still a threat to democracy. Progress can still be made in many policy areas. Keep calm and carry on."

Fred Barnes now knows how Kris Jenner felt when her husband came out as a woman.

ITEM 2: Kristol's plan was simple. Sabotage Trump's presidential campaign and after the debacle, the Weekly Standard would be the voice of the new Republican Party.

The Weekly Standard no longer exists.

ITEM 3CNBC reported, "Former President Donald Trump and his company filed a federal lawsuit Monday in an effort to block New York state Attorney General Letitia James from continuing to investigate his business.

"James’ civil probe of the Trump Organization is focused on claims that the company misstated the value of certain real estate assets to obtain favorable loan and insurance rates, while lowering its tax obligations. Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen originally made those claims in testimony to Congress.

"The attorney general’s investigation is mirrored by a criminal probe being conducted by the office of Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.

"The suit comes nearly two weeks after news that James was seeking to question Trump under oath on Jan. 7 in a deposition for her investigation.

"Ronald Fischetti, a lawyer representing Trump in the New York investigations, told CNBC in a phone call Monday morning that they plan to file a motion to quash that deposition sometime soon after Christmas."

Enough is enough.

The harassment must stop. No one should be under constant investigation like this. Republicans must make Biden, Obama and Clinton pay by investigating their decades of political corruption.

ITEM 4: Politico reported, "Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and President Joe Biden spoke Sunday night after a major blowup in negotiations around the president’s domestic agenda, three people familiar with the call told Politico.

"The conversation ended with a sense that negotiations would, in fact, resume around the Build Back Better Act in some form in the new year. The tone of conversation was cordial and it was agreed that they would speak again on legislative priorities.

"White House staff had given Manchin a heads-up on Thursday that the president was soon to put out a statement accepting a delay in the Build Back Better Act and that it was going to mention the West Virginia senator by name. Manchin objected, asking that either his name be left out or that he not be alone because his family had already been the target of abuse and he didn’t want to be singled out."

Manchin delayed the inevitable. The people who ponied up a billion to elect Hillary and another billion to elect Biden will get their trillion-dollar gift, and there will be a welfare state.

ITEM 5: The New York Post reported, "Woman catches husband kissing his mistress on home doorbell camera."

Half the husbands who read that story are disconnecting their doorbell cameras today.

ITEM 6: Techno Fog reported, "It's official: Durham is investigating the Clinton Campaign."

This special investigation is basically his personal gravy train. Some assistant deputy clerk will get indicted. Maybe.

ITEM 7: She never complained about this when Byrd was in the Senate.

Her native state, Hawaii, has fewer people than West Virginia.

She now lives in California, where people poop in the streets and raid stores with impunity. I'll stay in West Virginia, thank you.

ITEM 8: Rasmussen announced, "Crime: 68% Of Voters Say It’s Getting Worse."

Crime is so high, even Democrats are complaining.

ITEM 9: Why do they call Brian Stelter potato?

Potatoes are useful. They are versatile. And they don't discriminate against minorities.

Biden failed on covid so the media makes people who ignored his bad advice a scapegoat for him.

ITEM 10: ABC said, "Sen. Joe Manchin suggests Child Tax Credit payments would be used to buy drugs."

It's gossip.

The story began, "Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., privately questioned whether parents would misuse Child Tax Credit payments to buy drugs, according to three sources familiar with his comments."

There is no direct quote.

Buried in Paragraph 11 was this statement from Manchin's office, "Senator Manchin has made clear he supports the Child Tax Credit and believes the money should be targeted to those who need it most. He has also expressed support for a paid leave program that has a dedicated, sustainable funding mechanism."

By the way, some parents will use the money to buy drugs.

ITEM 11: Zero Hedge reported, "Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Monday blasted CNN for what he called a pedo outbreak, after not one, but two recent busts involving CNN producers who have been accused of child molestation."

That was the lead paragraph. The next four quoted what he actually said: "One of them is a man called John Griffin, who was just indicted by a federal grand jury for attempting to "induce minors to engage in unlawful sexual activity.

"Then just days after that story, Project Veritas exposed another creep at CNN. They published graphic text messages and video of a CNN producer fantasizing about molesting a child.

"Project Veritas said the producer also allegedly sought explicit photographs of that child.

"As of today there are more accused pedophiles at CNN than Americans who have died of the so-called Omicron variant."

Zero Hedge used actual quotes of his actual words instead of third-hand reports from anonymous people.

Zero Hedge practiced journalism. ABC did not.

ITEM 12: The Epoch Times reported, "A federal judge in Missouri has issued a temporary hold on the Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for federal contractors in 10 U.S. states while litigation plays out."

Is he a Trump judge? No.

A Bush judge? No.

A Bush the first judge? No. No. No.

He is a Ford judge.

ITEM 13: Politico reported, "Rep. Stephanie Murphy, a leading voice of House Democrats’ moderate wing, announced Monday she won’t seek re-election next fall in another stinging loss for her party.

"The Florida Democrat — who flipped a GOP-held battleground seat in 2016 and helped write the party’s playbook for its House takeover two years later — said she is leaving the Hill to spend more time with her family, including her two school-aged children."

I hope she does spend more time with her kids.

She is the 21st Democrat in the House to throw in the towel so far. Albio Sires of New Jersey became No. 22.

That's 22 down with 199 left to go.

ITEM 14: Trending Politics reported, "If GOP Wins House In 2022 Midterms – Minority Leader McCarthy Plans 7 Investigations Into Biden Admin On Day 1."

They did it to Trump, do it to them harder.

Impeach Biden 7 times and his veep at least once.

ITEM 15: Bearing Arms reported, "With Gov. Ron DeSantis seemingly on board with the idea of dropping the requirement that legal gun owners in Florida obtain a government-issued license before exercising their right to bear arms, the prospects of Constitutional Carry becoming law in the Sunshine State are now high enough that we’re starting to see the media freakout over the prospect begin in earnest.

"This weekend, the Sun-Sentinel newspaper had a big feature on the impending fight over permitless carry, and while they note that similar legislation has been filed in recent years only to quietly die in committee, this year the momentum behind the movement appears to be having an impact."

Vermont was the first state to not require a permit to carry a gun. It never did.

Now 21 states don't.

Freedom rocks.

And Glocks.

ITEM 16: Breitbart reported, "President Joe Biden has experienced a tremendous drop in support among the younger demographic — those under the age of 30 — since taking office, a YouGov/Economist survey found."

The Fuck Joe Biden chant turned 18-29 voters from his best supporters into his biggest detractors.

And it was truly a grassroots effort that began in the student sections at college football games.

ITEM 17: A reader liked this obituary.

I laughed and laughed and laughed some more.

FINALLY, I will post on Christmas Day because it is on a Saturday and not a Sunday. I only take Sundays off. 


  1. Items 3 & 14, I like starting the day with laughter, thanks for the jokes.

    1. "It's a big club and you ain't in it."
      George Carlin

      "They did it to Trump, do it to them harder."
      Dream on.
      The Dem establishment and the Rep establishment are in the big club. Trump isn't.

    2. All FUD, all the time; that's Jeffery.

  2. Replies
    1. Yes. Kudos to a good writer. Have to love it when slick comedic timing is installed in written words. I am reminded of George Saunders' "The Barber's Unhappiness".

    2. It is pretty funny in parts, but there's one particularly jarring sentence:

      "Renay took tremendous pride in making 1 gay son and 2 gay grandchildren."

      If it said that she had "tremendous love" for them, wonderful; they're her child and grandchildren, after all. But why the "tremendous pride" in producing biological errors?

  3. "Zionist Kristol's plan was simple. Sabotage Trump."

    Why? Trump was the best friend Israel ever had.
    Why is Kristol a Never Trumper but Zionist Dennis Prager supports Trump? Both supported Bush 43.

    Because Trump is an America-First populist and Bush 43 is a cheap-labor globalist (Communism-lite).
    Turns out Kristol and his friends are more Communism-lite than Zionist.
    Prager is a fierce anti-Communist.

    1. Not smart to alienate yourself and your argument in your first sentence.

    2. Apparently the knives being thrown at "knifecatcher" aren't being thrown quite hard enough.

    3. Jeffery can't make a statement without lying, and his anti-Semitism often comes out.

      Apparently the knives being thrown at "knifecatcher" aren't being thrown quite hard enough

      Apparently, they are. Jeffery just hasn't learned how to lie convincingly.

    4. Knifecatcher would likely find more acceptance and fulfillment on the Unz Review.

    5. Bill Kristol is a GOPe Trump hating, Deep state loving warmongering Idiot. So's Lynn Cheney. Mitt Romney, too I don't see a "Zionist" pattern here.
      As for Nerfcatcher, simply an Idiot. Maybe too much exposure to Jackboot oil.

  4. I watched CHRISTMAS IS CANCELLED on Prime yesterday. It was pretty good. On a scale of 1 - 10, I rate it a 7.

    1. I want to see it, but we ditched prime this fall. It looks funny. I've watched most of the Christmas movies on Fox Nation, however.

      Merry Christmas, Kitty!

  5. Finally the truth comes out about the Durham investigation: Gravy Train! Good one Don.

    1. I think Don pointed that out last year when he began calling him Bullshit Durham. The reminder that this is all show is important though, we shouldn't get caught up in the theatrics.

  6. 1&2 - Kristol’s blue, got no persuasion.

    3 & 14 - the RINOs will never investigate Beelzebubba, Sotero or Xiden. They are guilty of the same crimes, although on a lesser scale. I don’t trust McCarthy.

    12 - I have little faith that the Supremes will end the mandate madness. With so many vaccinated testing positive, the folly of vaccine mandates is apparent to clear thinking people. I don’t think the Supremes are clear thinking anymore. some are Bill Kristol’s with robes.

    FINALLY - Chinese food and Don Surber on Christmas Day!!

  7. #9: If the unvaccinated are getting the vaccinated infected, why are cases spiking to record levels in places that have 99% vaccination rates? Why did Cornell shut down when 900 new cases were reported among a population that was masked indoors and out, social distanced, tested twice weekly and yes, 97% vaccinated?

    #10: I'm not saying that welfare parents are using Biden money to buy drugs, but my daughter is a first grade teacher in Detroit and many of her kids are dropped off smelling like weed because their parents wake up in the morning and light up a joint. One question, do they still call it a joint?

  8. A very pleasant 66 today in the Constitutional Carry state of Arizona! An armed society is a polite society.

    1. When I first was based in Winslow AZ. I remember checking out at a local grocery store. ahead of me was a Cowboy, chaps, spurs, gunbelt, six shooter,dirty, sweaty, tired and his Navajo wife dressed in full dance regala.They went out to the pickup, horse trailer complete with an dirty dusty Pinto, with saddle, and rope.
      NE Oregon where I live still has a bit of that too. But, I could live in Northern AZ.

    2. So you were standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona, such a fine sight to see it’s a girl, my Lord in a flat-bed Ford (with a horse trailer) slowin’ down to take a look at you?

  9. "FINALLY, I will post on Christmas Day"

    Hmmm. I don't know that I approve, however, if your article is VERY short, and you spend most of Christmas day with family and loved ones, I'll approve. Life is too short and family too precious to waste on political sewage.

    Merry Christmas to you and all my fellow readers. And a blessed 2022 as well.

  10. 1 & 2 - It's really strange how so many once-sane "conservatives" have lost it. Even Bill Kristol was once sane. Ten or so years ago, I grabbed a taxi in DC to head over to KDCA (Reagan National) to catch a late flight home. The cabbie had on a talk radio show, and the guest was Bill Kristol. The main topic was how the left tries to call small differences of opinion big differences - what he called "differences that don't matter." His example was growing up in a passionately-Trotskyist household (that was long the excuse that most domestic fellow-travelers gave - that they were TROTSKYISTS and not STALINISTS), and how everyone made a big deal that there was a huge difference between the two... but in reality, the differences were in fact so tiny that they didn't matter. That's useful stuff. What the heck happened to Bill?

    3 - These endless investigations are a rancid legacy of the late 1980s, when the D party took back control of the Senate after the 1986 election. They invented a "right" for perpetual, floating, never-ending, open-ended special-prosecutor investigations of the executive branch any time an R was in the oval office. And they are still doing it.

    5 - Did they capture him telling her that, as soon as possible, he was going to divorce his wife and marry her? Asking for a friend...

    7 - Silly old bette shows what a bubble these people live in. In their bubbled world, they believe that all of their crazy ideas are popular. They aren't. They need to get out more. Maybe she should pay WV a visit. (Note: VISIT, then LEAVE.)

    9 - Calling that guy a "potato" is unfair - to potatoes. If nature on her own produced a miracle food, it's probably the potato - confined to a remote valley in the Peruvian highlands until the Spanish found it. It's about the best single-source of vitamins and minerals, and they keep really well if come someplace cool and dark. They were a big deal for mariners, as they provided good nutrition (similar to the British using limes, but limes are much more perishable) and kept well in the hold. A minimal survival diet for a human of potatoes and milk is the only minimal one that would work indefinitely.

    14 - When the GOP takes back the House next year, it is basically mandatory that they impeach sniffy. You have to do it to lay down the law to the other side - that either they knock off their nonsense, or any time the opposition party controls the House the President will be impeached. They trivialized it, so hit them over the head with a 2x4 about it.

    15 - The Vermont Constitution (1777) guarantees carry (even carry concealed) as a right. Congrats to Texas and Florida on ... finally catching up with ... Vermont...

    1. 9. And potatoes go well with either orange juice or tomato juice in liquid form!

  11. Donald John Trump is still our president.

    Masthead: Except another shot.

    1: Nifty.

    4: Sounds like FUD. They've been trying for more than 80 years and haven't gotten it yet.

    5: Mom saw Daddy kissing Divorce court.

    9: The majority is the one without the shot.

    13: she is leaving the Hill to spend more time with her family

    English translation: When the Rs come back, she's up for an investigation.

    16: 5 gets you 10: They didn't vote for him, either.

  12. #14. Let's make Zou Xiden the first pResident impeached three times. Better yet, make it five or six.

  13. #16. A lot of those kids are not new conservatives. They are neomarxist Bernie Sanders supporters.

  14. #12- How can they have a mandate for something that clear does not work? I found out that the NFL is postponing/rescheduling game because of the "covid reserve list" of some teams. OK- -The NFL has to have some of the healthiest specimens around, probably over 80% vax rate ,too. Now some teams cannot even field a team because of covid? I think it is time to sue the Pharma companies that sold the U.S. taxpayers these fake vaxes into oblivion. I surely will skip these DNA altering vaxes, with lots of unacknowledged side effects being pushed by companies shielded from lawsuits from those they harm or kill.

    1. The more they publicize healthy vaccinated people getting Covid, the more they ruin the narrative of the risk the unvaccinated face/cause.

  15. I am very happy that Stephanie Murphy is dropping out but let's make one thing clear: she CAMPAIGNS as a moderate but votes in full lock step with AOC and the radical left in Congress. The only reason she became a congressman was to help her husband's company secure Chinese money. Mission accomplished!

  16. 3. both parties want to discourage any business man from ever considering running for president again. I hope the next Trump administration gives payback big time and it continues for an additional 8 years under the DiSantis regime.
    9. If the vaccine or "jab" was really effective, they wouldn't need to worry about the unvaccinated. The fact that they do worry means they KNOW it is not effective, but, if they say so, they will be censored.
    13. roybal allard is the 23rd. Tough to keep up with the numbers. Reminds me of the old Woody Allen movie "Take the Money and Run!" Trump should investigate all of them.
    14. I love "what goes around comes around." The democrats were never worried about playing dirty because the republicans never made them suffer retribution. Now it is time for payback, BIG time.

  17. 13. Only tools like those at Politico would claim that House Democrats have a "moderate wing". It's commies all the way down.

  18. "Poor, illiterate, and strung out".

    Perfect description of the streets of New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Chicago, St. Louis, Seattle, Denver, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and just about every other Democratic run shitehole city.

    Hey, Bette! Here's a fun fact for you: West Virginia high school graduates can read, write, and do math at a high school level. NONE of the high school graduates of the Democratic run city of Baltimore can do that and they spend more than the tuition to Sidwell Friends (where Obama's kids went to school) to achieve that level of "excellence ".

    I wouldn't expect a ignorant, indoctrinated, alcohol and drug addled celebutard like you to know that.
