Highlights of the News

ITEM 1: The Epoch Times reported, "Just moments before she was shot and killed, Ashli Babbitt confronted the police officers guarding the doors to the Speaker’s Lobby at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, blasting them for allowing rioters to smash the windows and not calling for backup, an analysis of a journalist’s video shows."

Wow.

Her death is sounding more and more like manslaughter or even murder.

A special prosecutor is needed.

ITEM 2: Market Watch reported that Red China's Chairman "Xi Jinping took to the virtual stage at Davos to address Fed Chair Jerome Powell — please don’t lift interest rates."

Chairman Xi said, "If major economies slam on the brakes or take a U-turn in their monetary policies, there would be serious negative spillovers. They would present challenges to global economic and financial stability, and developing countries would bear the brunt of it."

He did not ask. He demanded. We shall see if the West has any heroes left.

ITEM 3: NDTV reported that Red "China is urging people to wear masks and gloves when opening mail, especially from abroad, after authorities suggested the first case of the Omicron coronavirus virus variant found in Beijing could have arrived via a package from Canada."

Thank you, Canada!

Some say that since the virus lasts only 3 hours on paper, it is unlikely to have lasted in a letter that took 4 days to get there. But Canadians know paper better than anyone in the world. I am sure they developed the Everlasting Gobstopper of paperdom.

ITEM 4TASS reported, "The Russian, Iranian and Chinese navies will hold joint naval maneuvers, Russia’s Pacific Fleet reported on Tuesday."

Don't worry. We have more transgendered and more pregnant sailors than they do. Combined!

ITEM 5: Marie Oakes tweeted, "Truckers at the U.S.-Canada border in Emerson, Manitoba, Canada protest against mandates impacting the trucking industry. 

"Canada’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate began on Jan. 15 for cross-border truck drivers.

"The U.S. mandate for all foreign trucker drivers begins on Jan. 22."

This must be done so that a truck driver won't catch covid from himself.

ITEM 6: The New York Post reported, "Reps. Jim Langevin (D-RI) and Jerry McNerney (D-Calif.) announced Tuesday that they will not seek re-election in November, becoming the 27th and 28th House Democrats who will not be back in the chamber after the mid-term elections. 

"Langevin — who was first elected to his seat in 2000, having previously served as Rhode Island’s Secretary of State and as a state representative — announced his decision in an op-ed published in The Providence Journal, saying that he wanted to spend more time with his loved ones."

He's 57. The other guy is 70, or as Pelosi, Hoyer and Clyburn call them, just kids.

ITEM 7: Kane at Citizen Free Press reported, "Debbie Wasserman — Vaccine ID is progressive, Voter ID is racist…"

Wait'll she learns more black people have photo IDs than have taken the shots.

The more this year goes on, the more I yearn for those halcyon days of 2020.

ITEM 8: Breaking 911 reported, "Wild Video Shows Cleveland Browns Star Being Arrested NAKED Near Children’s Learning Center In Florida."

Malik McDowell. Good on the field, terrible off. Even his lawyer says it may be drugs.

ITEM 9: Axios reported that Red "China blocked all four of Disney's Marvel movies from being released in its theaters last year, a grim sign for U.S. film giants being squeezed out of the world's fastest-growing box office.

"The Chinese Communist Party is using domestic films as a key conduit for mass messaging aimed at achieving political goals, leaving little room for foreign views."

Disney has spent more than a decade kissing Chairman Xi's nether regions in hopes of cracking a market of 1.3 billion people. I said all along Red China would cut them off. Now it has.

ITEM 10: Rasmussen announced, "Democrat Voters Support Harsh Measures Against Unvaccinated."

In summary:

  • 55% support fines against unvaxxed
  • 59% support house arrest
  • 48% support prison for questioning vax efficacy on social media
  • 45% support internment camps
  • 47% support surveillance
  • 29% support the state taking their kids

The vaccine mandates are not about public health. They are all about punishing nonconformists.

ITEM 11: RT reported, "Will Prince Andrew’s U.S. sex abuse trial spell the end of the British monarchy?"

It survived Edward II (King of England, 1307-1327), George IV (1820-1830), and Edward VIII (January-December 1936). It can survive Prince Pedo.

ITEM 12: James O'Keefe sent a letter (via a reader), which said, "In a mind-blowing new development, I’ve been made aware of Department of Justice Freedom of Information/Privacy Acts (“FOIPA”) response letters which appear to confirm that there is some level of communication between the FBI and pharmaceutical giant Pfizer about Project Veritas.

"The letters, which were originally obtained by Judicial Watch resulting from FOIA requests made by the legal watchdog group, reject the request for the specific exchanges between Pfizer and the FBI about Project Veritas -- citing separate reasons for the rejection.

"It is troubling, not just that Pfizer apparently believes it can rely on the FBI to squash truthful reporting via investigations into law-abiding journalists, but also that they appear to be right in thinking the FBI will willingly target dissenting press with unconstitutional raids.

"There should be no place for such retaliatory attacks on journalism in America.

"I call on ALL JOURNALISTS to take a stand on this. The time to defend the First Amendment is NOW."

The Fascist Bureau of Intimidation.

ITEM 13: Manchin ain't budging.

Manchin ain't budging.

ITEM 14: Life News reported, "New Poll: 52% of Millennials Want Abortions Banned After Unborn Baby’s Heart Starts Beating."

OK, they are not as totally hopeless as I thought.

ITEM 15: NFL star Ndamukong Suh tweeted, "I’ve been involved in the hospitality industry for many years, both as an investor and operator. It’s never been as bad as this. Here’s what’s happening to restaurants you love.

"The pandemic hit everyone hard, but restaurants struggled more than most. How much more?

"42% of independent restaurants who didn’t get government relief are in danger of filing for bankruptcy. Even among those that did, 20% are in danger of going bankrupt.

"This goes far beyond you not being able to get your favorite meal. These issues will create generational scars for restaurant owners, their families, and their staff. To stay alive they are having to sell their homes, defer education, or take on enormous personal debt.

"So what’s really driving this? A few big things.

"1/ Operating hours are being severely impacted by new variants. Fewer open hours means less revenue, customer confusion, and lower profit.

'2/ Sales have been impacted dramatically. Many restaurants have reported sales decrease of 20%+ in recent months.

"3/ Operating a restaurant in 2021 was harder than ever.

"91% reported difficulty hiring.

"89% reported raising prices.

"42% reported removing all seating, indoors and outdoors. Just these three alone are enough to shut somebody down."

"Despite all these challenges, I’ve seen the restaurant community be some of the most empathetic around. Those that could, took care of their own.

"84% of restaurants raised wages.

"37% added paid sick leave benefits.

21% added paid vacation.

"Here's how you can help. Today is the national day of action to save restaurants. The Independent Restaurant Coalition is working to get Congress to replenish the Restaurant Revitalization Fund. This will give more funds to restaurants in need."

Good post. He was publicizing this petition to Congress.

Suh used his celebrity not to scream and shout, but to calmly make the case for his industry. How I wish others would take this approach. By the way, his mother is a teacher born in Jamaica, and his father is a mechanical engineer from Cameroon. Suh has a degree in engineering.

ITEM 16The New York Post reported, "The Federal Aviation Administration said on Tuesday it was withdrawing proposed conditions that could have allowed delivery company FedEx to install a laser-based missile-defense on jet-maker Airbus A321-200 airplanes."

I guess sharks with freaking laser beams are a no-go, too.

ITEM 17: NBC reported, "Sen. Bernie Sanders suggested Tuesday that he’d support primary challengers against Democratic colleagues Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema, further intensifying a political battle pitting members of President Joe Biden’s party against one another."

Maybe he can get Little Stevie Wonder to run.

ITEM 18AP gushed, "In tiny Wyoming town, Bill Gates bets big on nuclear power."

It said, "Until recently, Kemmerer, Wyoming, was little-known for anything except J.C. Penney's first store and some 55-million-year-old fish fossils in quarries down the road.

"Then in November, a company started by Bill Gates, TerraPower, announced it had chosen Kemmerer for a nontraditional, sodium-cooled nuclear reactor that will bring on workers from a local coal-fired power plant scheduled to close soon.

"The demonstration project comes as many U.S. states see nuclear emerging as an answer to fill the gap as a transition away from coal, oil and natural gas to reduce greenhouse gas emissions."

Bu-bu-but Three Mile Island!

ITEM 19: George Papadopoulos tweeted, "Biden will not back an athletic boycott of the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, but backed a boycott of Atlanta by the MLB All-Star Game."

Maybe if Atlanta gave Hunter a billion dollars to "invest" like Red China did, Biden would have backed the game.

ITEM 20: Via Kane at Citizen Free Press, the Great Lakes Wire reported, "An overwhelming majority of Michigan voters are in favor of increased election security, including measures requiring photo identification to vote, a recent poll by the Remington Research Group found.

"The poll, commissioned by Americans for Citizen Voting, surveyed 1,011 likely General Election Michigan voters. Among results, it found more than 75% of participants supported a requirement to show a government-issued photo ID in order to vote, while support among Black residents was even higher at 79%."

Does this mean 79% of black voters in Michigan are white supremacists?

FINALLY, Mike Cernovich had an interesting observation. By my, he means may.

  5. Interesting bit on Alphabet Suh .. He always came across as a bit of a bad actor and cheap shot artiste on the field. But then again, part of my impression would have been shaped by the sports media

  8. 2 - Methinks that chairman xi and sniffy are on the same page on this one. The grand plan, endorsed by a surprising number of economists (sic?), has been that as long as "the federal government" keeps flooding the landscape with "stimulus money" and the Fed keeps interest rates at zero (so as to make the cost of the borrowing to create the "stimulus money" zero), then all will be well. One can't help but think that the furious inflation that this has set off is reality's way of getting back at the people who actually have believed their own b.s. on this stuff.

    14 - Anyone born after 1973 could easily have been aborted - but wasn't; that affects the way may folks think about this issue.

  9. Item 18: “In tiny Wyoming town, Bill Gates bets big on nuclear power.” I’m all for widespread nuclear power, but I’m not sure Bill Gates is the best person to develop it. Will the engineers use CTRL-ALT-DELETE to reboot the reactor when it crashes?

    3. LuAnn, he's planning on making the peasants eat veggies and bugs while he gets to eat real food. Just as worrisome is the fact that China has bought just as much farmland. China has also been making loans to everybody in Africa and of course getting the land, factory or airport when the loans ate defaulted on. One if the few semi conductor factories outside China that was in England is now owned bty China. The rare earth metals are in Africa and Afghanistan in addition to China. Guess who owns them now?
