Highlights of the News

A cousin by marriage of Hayley Orrantia (she plays the daughter on "The Goldbergs") asked me to review her new movie, "Christmas Is Cancelled." I get a lot of review requests but I am not a very good reviewer. But the barrel roll in the trailer did make me laugh. I look forward to reviews by readers. 

I'm retired, remember?

ITEM 1: The Hill reported, "Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) announced on Fox News Sunday that he will not vote for President Biden’s mammoth climate and social spending bill, essentially killing the White House's top legislative priority."

Manchin: I cannot vote to continue with this piece of legislation, I just can't. I tried everything humanly possible, I can't get there.

Bret Baier: You're done. This is a no.

Manchin: This is a no on this legislation. I have tried everything I know to do.

This proposal is strictly socialist. It recreates the welfare state while destroying industry with wild green nonsense.

We shall see how this works out, but his resolve on this matter is looking more genuine by the hour. If he holds out one more year, erect a statue. 

ITEM 2: Bernie said Manchin is going to have a lot of explaining to do to the people of West Virginia.

Ed Morrissey tweeted, "That would be the state that had zero counties for Biden in 2020 and has no Democrats in constitutional state offices, right?"

Democrats ruled West Virginia for 84 years. Then Al Gore came along. And John Kerry. And Obama. And Hillary. And Biden.

ITEM 3: Kamala Harris went on Charlamagne Tha God's Comedy Central show and got angry with the comic.

Him: I want to know who the real president of this country is — is it Joe Biden, or Joe Manchin?

Her: It's Joe Biden — and don't start talking like a Republican! It's Joe Biden. And I'm vice president, and my name is Kamala Harris.

For a person who laughs all the time, she has no sense of humor.

Was this a set-up? If so, the staff putting Her Humorlessness on Comedy Central was inspired. Look for Christmas Eve layoffs on Friday.

ITEM 4: Fox reported, "White House clarifies Harris' statement that the admin 'didn't see' delta, omicron variants coming."

Biden said he'd bring the nation together. A year later, he cannot bring his own administration together.

It does not help that he picked a vice president who does not work well with others.

ITEM 5: President Trump said AT&T wants Zucker out at CNN.

CNN has to abandon its blatant bias in favor of the ethos that built it: subdued bias.

ITEM 6: Via Breitbart, "Ron DeSantis announced on Friday. 'Florida added over 50,000 new jobs in the month of November, a much faster rate than the nation, which added 210,000 jobs in November.'"

Florida is growing 6 times faster than the rest of the USA.

President DeSantis would have added 1,260,000 jobs in November -- a million more than Democrats added.

ITEM 7: BBC reported, "A man who targeted the Jewish community by wearing T-shirts supporting proscribed Palestinian groups has been banned from NW11 in north London.

"Feras Al Jayoosi, 34, from Swindon in Wiltshire, was spotted on 8 and 9 June wearing the T-shirts in Golders Green, which has a large Jewish population."

If wearing a T-shirt gets you jailtime, then why aren't half the liberals in England and the world in jail for wearing Chairman Mao T-shirts?

He actually killed 100 million people.

ITEM 8: The Military Times reported, "The Navy is launching a maternity uniform pilot program in 2022 for expecting sailors, providing them with maternity uniforms at no cost."

Free uniforms. There's an incentive to get pregnant. Uniforms were expensive back in the day.

ITEM 9: Media-ite reported, "Sarah Palin Proudly Tells Raucous Turning Point Rally Crowd She Will Get Vaccinated ‘Over My Dead Body.’"

The story failed to note that Palin recovered from covid and now has natural immunity from it.

Meanwhile, Democrat Senators Warren and Booker (Pocahontas and Spartacus) were vaccinated and caught covid anyway.

People are tired of the subject. Vaccines were meant for people vulnerable to the illness, mainly the old and infirm. Enough already.

ITEM 10: CTV reported, "A new study that tested live SARS-CoV-2 against blood samples in a laboratory setting is suggesting that those who survive a breakthrough infection may have some sort of ‘super immunity’ against variants.

"The study, which was published Thursday in the Journal of the American Medical Association, focused on how those with breakthrough infections had a subsequent strong immune response against the Delta variant, which researchers believe is an indication that there will be a strong response against other variants as well."

Palin knows her stuff.

Media-ite does not.

ITEM 11: So I am reading all the over-reactions to Manchin saying no to another $5 trillion of socialism (he has 10 months to change his mind) and I am stunned by how mainstream violence has become on the left. I thought Antifa was a fringe group. No, the thugs in black beating innocents and burning down businesses now are centrists in the Democrat Party.

The Atlantic sent a reporter to Brooklyn's Park Slope Food Coop, which it described as "one of America’s bluest bulwarks," to get a reaction to Manchin just saying no.

Bill Gross said of Biden, "I wish he could twist the arms of Manchin and Sinema—or break them, maybe."

Gross is no unemployable young thug.

He's a 76-year-old retired psychiatrist.

Democrats have become a violent people, encouraged by a media that calls Democrat riots mostly peaceful protests.

ITEM 12: Breitbart reported, "South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) has advanced a bill in the state legislature that would codify her executive orders limiting transgender athletes to competing only in categories that correspond to their birth gender."

The bill carries the Seal of Disapproval from the ACLU.

ITEM 13: News AKMI reported, "A civil rights complaint was filed with the U.S. Department of Education against an Illinois high school after it advertised an allegedly racially-segregated 'students of color field trip opportunity.'

"Parents Defending Education (PDE) filed the complaint Friday against Downers Grove South High School in Downers Grove, Illinois, claiming the school 'discriminated on the basis of race, color or national origin in programs or activities that receive federal financial assistance.'

"At issue is a flier advertising a filed trip in which ostensibly only 'students of color' can participate. The field trip was for those students interested in becoming a teacher, which involved a 'luncheon [to] discuss the importance of considering education as a career as a person of color.'"

Besides the obvious racism of the trip, I ask why am I, as a federal taxpayer, paying for a school field trip in Illinois?

ITEM 14: The Post Millennial reported, "Terryous Jorelle Baker, 27, and Elizabeth Chavez, 24, have both been arrested when a car the male suspect was allegedly driving crashed into a crowd at a Winter Garden parade in Florida, on the outskirts of Orlando, last Sunday.

"Baker has been charged with multiple counts in connection with the incident. Police also arrested Chavez, a passenger in Baker's car, on an outstanding warrant."

The War on Christmas is now physical.

ITEM 15: The Washington Post reported, "D.C. third-graders were made to reenact episodes from the Holocaust. A school staffer member made students pretend to kill each other in mass graves during library class."

I liked it better when third-graders dressed up as Pilgrims and Indians for the Thanksgiving play.

ITEM 16: The Daily Mail reported, "Desperate New York City restaurant owners have been forced to get creative to tackle the city's rodent infestation after rat sightings soared by 40% in 2021 compared to 2019.

"Restauranteurs have blamed lack of regular trash collection and street-cleaning services during the pandemic era staff shortages for the increase in critters."

The cutbacks are designed to turn NYC into a shithole. Upper Manhattanites believe they are immune from the damage this does.

Boy, are they in for a shock.

ITEM 17: The New York Post reported, "NYC COVID inspector booted from bar for failing to show own proof of vaccination."

I would rather they kicked her out for being a covid inspector (also known as someone's unemployable relative).

FINALLY, the New York Post also reported, "A 29-year-old Texas mom is pregnant with her ninth baby, she announced Saturday.

"In a nine-minute video posted Saturday on her YouTube channel, Yalancia Rosario said in a gender reveal video she and her husband Michael Rosario, 36, are expecting a boy, adding another son to eight other male children."

How's the song go? 

Keep your sunny side up, up.
Hide the side that gets blue.
If you have nine sons in a row
Baseball teams make money, you know.


  1. Bernie channeling Ricky Ricardo. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

    1. Item 6:
      President DeSantis won’t be elected until 2028.

      Nothing will be set right in this country until President Trump is rightfully put back in place as President.

      He’s gonna be the first to win 3 Presidential elections.

      If you haven’t been paying attention, those 90 million+ voters he has aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. They’ll be motivated to elect DeSantis as well. As long as he stays on the course he’s on.

    2. My last paycheck was ๐Ÿ’ฐ$2500 for working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging ๐Ÿ’ฐ8k for months now and she works about 30 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. The potential with this is endless.

      This is what I do...... ๐–­­­๐–­­­๐–­­­.๐­­­๐„­­­๐“­­­๐‚­­­๐€­­­๐’­­­๐‡­­­.๐‚­­­๐Ž­­­๐Œ

  2. OMG, that movie trailer is hilarious! YES! YES! YES! I will watch that movie. But what's with the Arabic subtitles?

    1. I asked Don to put those in there so I could bone up on my Arabic. I actually did study the Arabic languageู„ุบุฉ ุนุฑุจูŠุฉู„ when I was in the American Army ุฌูŠุด ุงู…ุฑูŠูƒูŠุฉ in the city of of Monterrey ู…ูˆู†ุชุฑุงูŠ

    2. Very funny trailer. The Arabic subtitles added to the humor - this movie won’t be a hit in Iran.

    3. Hey, Schongy - They don't use Arabic in Iran. They speak Fart-si.

    4. Different languages, with many cognates, especially when dealing with Islamic topics, but same writing system

  3. Big D, doing a movie review is easy peasy, at least if you’re a LibCommie. Take multiple digs at Trump, praise the film’s “message of inclusion,” and above all, do NOT even HINT at ANYTHING that might offend the ChiComms.

  4. Item 11 - There’s no surprise here, as the Dems have become the party of intolerance and hate.

    Item 12 - Rather than lead with this action earlier this year, Governor Noem waited until now to act, following a true leader like DeSantis. If those are her instincts, she’s unqualified to be POTUS. If she was listening to bad advice earlier, that person/persons should be jettisoned from her team, but she still should have known better.

    1. Folks in South Dakota love her. She is playing three dimensional chess to keep the ACLU on her side and supporting women. Avoiding million dollar lawsuits is important when you are a mostly rural state without much industry.
      The lib commies like to use the cost of litigation to their advantage.

    2. RE your #11, Look for Dems to bring back one of their favorite institutions. Slavery. No race card (or vax) required.

      Don't be surprised since cheat by mail and no 2A are the next in their bag of tricks.

    3. 12 - she blew it big time on March. Fear of an NCAA boycott on post season tournaments. Mississippi faced those threats for years because of our state flag. The NCAA is not why we eventually changed it. We had tournament games here despite the threats. Noem is taking the right action now, but hurt her standing big time in March.

    4. Ace noted that the "their birth gender" provides a huge loophole because South Dakota allows birth certificates to be reissued with a change to the gender without any note of the change.

    5. Dede for the WIN!!! Breitbart has been fluffing Noem for a couple of months despite her treachery on the first 'single sex' bill and her double-talk on this one.

    6. You might can change that piece of paper, but you are either "XX" or "XY" . ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

  5. Re 8......Don you got me twisted in knots.... The military will give free clothes to women in the military yet women in the public sphere are encouraged to get an abortion, can't planned parenthood open a clothing store?

  6. Item 10: So the study found that vaccinated people who then got covid wound up with the same level of natural immunity as non-vaccinated people who got covid? Why take the risk of blood clots and myocarditis with the jab? Take your chances with natural immunity.

  7. 3. Did anyone else notice she "blacked up" her vernacular? She sounded like Hillary at a black church.

    1. I watched about five minutes. It was horrible. All racism all the time. What a disaster when speaking. I thought she’d channel Rodham with “I don’t feel no ways taaaaaaaahred”. I pray she is not Agnewed and is the candidate in 2024.

    2. The part that was queued up to the question of who the president is was classic. Her aide tried to shut down the interview when that question was asked.

  8. ITEM 4: It does not help that [Biden] picked a vice president who does not work well with others.

    She ‘worked’ well with Willie Brown.

    1. They "played" well too... ever heard of "Hide the Sausage"???

    2. She also kept good track of his schedule. She always knew when Willie was coming.

    3. She sure would do anything for a big...Dick doesn't understand her. Don,hit that button!!!

  9. ITEM 15: The Washington Post reported, "D.C. third-graders were made to reenact episodes from the Holocaust. A school staffer member made students pretend to kill each other in mass graves during library class."

    Look how far education has come in eight years when a 7-y-o kid was suspended for two days because he chewed his Pop Tart into a shape of a gun.

  10. Christmas is cancelled: It looks funny, and I can relate in a way. My current wife is younger than my two oldest kids. Luckily, they didn't go to school together. They get along fine.
    Too bad I don't watch movies anymore.

    1. This comment has been removed by the author.

    2. Estate planning will prevent a lot of grief later. Seriously.

  11. #3. She has no sense either, common or horse. Just a horse face.

  12. re: item 9 -- I know you said "enough already," but please hear me out. The vaccines, certainly in Canada, were never portrayed as for the elderly and infirm only. Good heavens, the jab is being pushed on five year olds. They were/are for everyone multiple times and for as many jabs as they tell us to get. You might be sick of COVID, but COVID is not sick of you. And, clearly, we are not vaxxing our way out of this.

    1. "we are not vaxxing our way out of this" as long as the "Federal Program of Endless Loot" is showered on "Big Pharma".

    2. Agree, totally. It is in Big Pharma's interests to keep the vaxx cycle going for as long as possible.

    3. Last spring, though, the vaxx was touted as a way out of this. Goalposts always moving...

  13. re: item 11 - Democrats were and are the party of violence. They are just reverting to form.

    1. Yup, 150 years ago they proudly Hung people.

    2. Fifty years ago they were still doing it. Then it became politically inconvenient.

    3. It is shocking how the Ds have managed to hoodwink so many.

    4. The good guys need to turn some of these thugs into sightless quadriplegics.

  14. No, they're not "insane."

    "DEAR AMERICAN PEOPLE, DEAR FRIENDS, for two years now, a global coup has been carried out all over the world, planned for some time by an elite group of conspirators enslaved to the interests of international high finance."
    Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganรฒ

  15. And as Unknown said on the weekend, COVID has a better marketing department than the flu. I'll stop now. Thanks for putting up with me.

  16. The new breed of Democrats are revealing their real world view. Human rights are for humans and the unwoke aren't human to them. You cannot expect them to listen to an inhuman anymore than they would listen to a slug. They will destroy your life without remorse. Resist accordingly.

  17. Christmas is cancelled looks to be a hoot-and not Woke.

  18. I'm not from WV but seeing how Manchin holds responsibility for things that affect my life and livelihood, I'm glad to see there are lines even he won't cross. Having said that, if I did live in WV, he still would not get my vote.

  19. 16 - forced outdoor dining has probably increased the amount of food scraps available to the rats. New York Shitty.

  20. "Breakthrough infection" = vaccine failure.

  21. 11 - I'll say it again - our system was built over many centuries to avoid violence. The left is tearing that all down because for some reason they think that they have an entitled right to violence and an entitled right to not face pushback. If they keep it up, this won't end well for them. A good parallel is the "Dirty War" in Argentina in 1974 - 1975, when leftists were having a grand old time setting off bombs and killing police officers and for some reason thought they had a right to not face pushback. The pushback was ugly - and they still whine about it (worldwide).

  22. Donald John Trump is still our president.

    3: For a person who laughs all the time, she has no sense of humor.

    You noticed that. I've also noticed it's a thing among Lefties. I had a prof in undergrad school who kept calling himself a Marxist who did the exact same thing.

    PS Like the Her Humorlessness. Goes with what they call Brandon on Insty - His Fraudulency.

    4: Biden said he'd bring the nation together.

    He did. Let's Go, Brandon.

    5: How's 'bout no bias at all?

    Or am I asking too much?

    10: Self-made woman.

    11: Gross is no unemployable young thug.

    He's a 76-year-old retired psychiatrist.

    5 gets you 10 he was one of the anti-war crowd 50 years ago. This is the Baby Boom Left. They're used to getting what they want and throwing a tantrum if they don't get it. Another William Ayers (remember his little manifesto?) or Ted Kaczynski.

    They've been doing their dirty work in the dark for 50 years and they still haven't turned the country.

    13: Because Idiot empowered the Deep State.

    15: Library class?

    17: Welcome to the party, pal.

  23. As to Item 13, it's because our state government spent all of our money, our children's money, and our grandchildren's money. We need your help.

  24. 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.

  25. 8. Pregnant sailors are not new. I traveled to a Navy base some years back. I noticed as I was checking in at the front gate office that everyone working there was pregnant. It was a place to put women on light duty.

  26. I am making $162/hour telecommuting. I never imagined that it was honest to goodness yet my closest companion is earning $21 thousand a month by working on the web, that was truly shocking for me, she prescribed me to attempt it simply ,
