Highlights of the News

ITEM 1: Connecticut state troopers for the win.

Trooper Lipert showed solidarity with his homeland.

Happy National Police Week!

ITEM 2: AP tweeted, "Elon Musk boasts that he’s acquiring Twitter to defend freedom of speech. But he has long used the platform to attack those who disagree with him."

Um, AP, that is what free speech is about. People say mean things to one another and disagree.

AP opposes free speech online because its clients -- Big Media -- see Twitter, bloggers and the rest as a threat to their power.

We are.

ITEM 3: Joe Manchin just saved the nation from Satan by voting with 50 Republicans to stop making Roe v. Wade the law of the land.

My understanding is the proposal contained many more abominations from the party of the purple-and-green-haired freaks.

I TWEET, THEREFORE I AM.

ITEM 4: Salena Zito asked, "Who is Kathy Barnette?" Incredibly, Barnette won't answer. 

Zito wants to know:

  • The name of her hometown.
  • Where was she an adjunct professor and when?
  • When was she in officer candidate school?
  • What financial institutions did she work at and when?
  • When did she move from Virginia to Pennsylvania? (She says in her book bio from 2018 that she lived in Virginia, so what year did she move to Pennsylvania?)
  • And a confirmation that the college she graduated from was Troy State University.

I suggest Barnette answer them quick because the clock is striking 12 for this Cinderella.

ITEM 5: AP reported, "A U.S. appeals court ruled Wednesday that California’s ban on the sale of semiautomatic weapons to adults under 21 is unconstitutional.

"In a 2-1 ruling, a panel of the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Wednesday the law violates the 2nd Amendment right to bear arms and a San Diego judge should have blocked what it called 'an almost total ban on semiautomatic centerfire rifles' for young adults. 'America would not exist without the heroism of the young adults who fought and died in our revolutionary army,' Judge Ryan Nelson wrote. 'Today we reaffirm that our Constitution still protects the right that enabled their sacrifice: the right of young adults to keep and bear arms.'

"The Firearms Policy Coalition, which brought the case, says the ruling makes them optimistic other age-based gun bans will be overturned.

"The ruling was not a total victory for gun rights advocates, who had sought to block the state from requiring a hunting license for purchases of rifles or shotguns by adults under 21 who are not in the military or law enforcement."

Judge Nelson is a Trump judge.

ITEM 6: The New York Post reported, "A series of ads for the new Adidas sports bra was banned from the UK for showing images of women’s bare breasts.

"The ad campaign — which was launched in February of 2022 — features the bare flesh of dozens of women in various skin colors and sizes to promote the sports bra’s 43-size range, according to the BBC."

Given the amount of money manufacturers and retailers spend advertising on these garments, the mark-up on brassieres must be fantastic.

ITEM 7: Biden called us Ultra MAGA on Tuesday and Trump the Great MAGA King on Wednesday.

Stop, Biden. All these compliments are going straight to our heads.

ITEM 8: All it took was one Samaritan to do the right thing to make all Samaritans look good for the next 2,000 years.

God bless, Floridians.

ITEM 9: Outkick reported, "ESPN couldn’t make the Kentucky Derby about race, so they switched to politics.

"On Wednesday, during an Outside the Lines episode, ESPN host John Barr interviewed Eric Reed — owner of Mercury Equine Center, which houses reigning Kentucky Derby-winning horse Rich Strike — and asked Reed if he had ever tweeted anything remotely negative about Vice President Kamala Harris.

"In typical ESPN fashion, the host had a tweet in question hiding in his back pocket after a considerable investigation over a matter that no one would care about if not for the hard-hitting journalism at ESPN.

"Barr’s tweet in question, posted back in January, poked fun at Kamala Harris by stating that her only qualification for the role was being 'good on her knees.'"

Once again, telling the truth gets you in trouble in America today.

ITEM 10: I could never serve on a federal grand jury.

I no longer believe the FBI on anything.

ITEM 11: That the biggest distributors of porn to children are the public schools.

School boards work for parents, not superintendents. Sadly, too many boards have it backward.

ITEM 12: After Tuesday, Trump is 58-1 in primary endorsements.

How did Matt Drudge play it? "BLOW TO THE DON: Pillen wins Nebraska gov primary..." and "Losing More Races Than He'd Like You to Know..."

Trump's endorsements are historic because no one has backed so many winners before. 

98.3% of those he backed won.

ITEM 13: Congress voted to give $40 billion to "Ukraine."

Much of that aid will come back to the USA in kickbacks, bribes and military sales.

ITEM 14: Politico reported, "In what may prove to be Florida’s last stand as a battleground state, Democrats are launching a $15 million voter organizing effort ahead of this year’s elections.

"Democratic candidates up and down the ballot — even those running in contested primaries — have agreed to pour in money that will be used to hire at least 200 organizers and open as many as 80 offices as part of a coordinated effort to pump up turnout across the state.

"Florida Democratic Party Chair Manny Diaz contends Blue Shift Florida is the start of an ambitious, institutionalized year-round effort that he has been touting since he took the helm of the battered party soon after Democrats were routed across the state in the last election. The idea, he said, was to create an operation that will remain intact after the elections and will be in place for the next presidential election in 2024."

$15 million?

That's about 50 cents per resident in Florida.

I see a party waving a white flag, and it isn't the Republican one.

ITEM 15: Did you ever wonder why Harvard Law School sucks? Consider this logic from a recent Harvard law professor.

The majority won.

ITEM 16: The New York Post reported, "An actress who starred in Marvel’s Doctor Strange was convicted alongside her husband Tuesday of repeatedly having sex with a 13-year-old girl over a three-year period.

"Zara Phythian — a martial artist who played a sorcerer alongside Benedict Cumberbatch in the 2016 Marvel flick — was unanimously convicted of 14 sex offenses against a child aged 13-15, the Nottingham Post said.

"Her husband, fellow martial artist Victor Marke, 59, was also found guilty of the same charges, as well as three others against another young girl.

"The husband and wife were remanded in custody and warned that they will get a “considerable period in custody” when sentenced on Monday, the local paper said.

"Their victim said she was just 13 when the couple plied her with rum and made her have oral sex with Marke after Phythian, then in her early 20s, first taught her how to do it, the paper said."

Doctor Strange is a Disney movie.

Forget yanking its copyright on Mickey Mouse. How about a RICO investigation into the grooming by so many Disney employees?

ITEM 17: Just the News reported, "Support for a Democrat-backed measure to expand the number of justices on the Supreme Court — a practice known as court-packing — has regained some momentum following the leak last week of Justice Samuel Alito's draft opinion signaling the court will reverse the Roe v. Wade decision on abortion.

"Since the leak, five additional House Democrats have added their support to the bill introduced last year.

"Reps. Brendan Boyle of Pennsylvania, David Cicilline of Rhode Island and Californians Nanette Diaz Barragan, Mark DeSaulnier and Jimmy Gomez have attached their names to the legislation, bringing the total number of sponsors to at least 56."

When they are back in charge, Republicans should expand it to 11 and pass a constitutional amendment limiting it to 9 but allowing sitting justices to complete their lifetime terms. This would rob Democrats of appointing a justice for decades.

ITEM 18: Bay Street reported, "Average U.S. Mortgage Rate Hits 5.53%, The Highest Level Since 2009."

Take it from a baby boomer, today's buyers are not even halfway to where the mortgages will top off.

ITEM 19: MSN reported, "A Florida state judge has thrown out the congressional map passed by the Republican legislature and pushed by Governor Ron DeSantis, ruling that it violated state law by drawing Black voters out of a north Florida district.

"Circuit Judge Layne Smith ruled Wednesday that the enacted map violates the state's constitutional amendments on redistricting because 'it diminishes African Americans' ability to elect candidates of their choice' in Florida's 5th District."

Democrats sued because they just cannot let segregation go. They demand congressional districts for coloreds and districts for whites.

ITEM 20Life News reported, "Leading pro-life U.S. Sen. Steve Daines called out Democrats’ abortion extremism Wednesday, saying they want sea turtle eggs to have more rights than unborn babies."

The actual quote was, "Under this radical abortion bill, an unhatched sea turtle would have more protections than an unborn human baby. Why do we have laws in place that protect the eggs of a sea turtle or the eggs of eagles? Because when you destroy an egg, you’re killing a preborn baby sea turtle or a preborn baby eagle."

Good point.

FINALLY, the Daily Mail reported, "An air traffic controller printed out a picture of a plane's cockpit controls to help a passenger with no flight experience land the plane in Florida so he could visit his pregnant wife.

"Robert Morgan, who has worked in the industry for 20 years, was on his break Tuesday afternoon reading a book outside after switching shifts with a colleague, when he received an emergency call that a passenger with no flight experience was trying to land a flight safely after the pilot suffered a medical emergency and fell unconscious.

"Morgan had never flown the Cessna 208 Caravan plane before, WBPF reports, but is an FAA-certified flight instructor with around 1,200 hours of flying time under his belt.

"He quickly decided to print out a layout of the cockpit, which he used to guide the passenger through the steps of flying and landing the plane as he struggled with the navigation system."

They should make a movie of this story.

  1. 4. PENNSYLVANIA LIBERAL ALERT!!
    Kathy Barnette is a bomb-throwing liberal paradimg as a conservative. Check out Greg Kelly's report on Newsmax (may 11).
    She says she was in the Armed Forces Reserves and Officer Candidacy School. There's no such things. She has no DD-214, She's on video saying how she would've been supporting the George Floyd (he died of a fentanyl overdose) rioters, and whines about slavery and equity.
    I don't envy you Pennsylvanians on your choice of candidates, but Kathy Barnette is PURE POISON .

  2. #3 Even if congress were to codify Roe, if the draft opinion were to issue as written, that is the court saying that the subject is not one that belongs at the national level. Regulation authority would remain with the states.*

  3. #1 -- Yes, happy National Police Week. Back in the late summer of 1980, literally just weeks before I was to head off to J school, we used to get the evening paper. There was such a thing then. I came home from my summer job and picked up the paper to read about Lech Walesa and the Solidarity movement. I was fascinated. I still remember reading that article and hoping it was the beginning of the end of communism. Yes, at the time, young people knew about the dangers and rot of communism. What a wonderful story about that state trooper and Walesa.

    3. The slimy hand of Soros emerges in abortion protest outrages
      This isn't a grassroots movement. This is a network of paid protestors serving as shock troops and goon squads for leftist billionaires like Soros and this Silicon Valley fanatic, Ramakrishnan. These billionaires not only have boots on the ground but they also pull puppet strings politically, which would explain a lot about why none of these bounders have been arrested

  18. Congress voted to give $40 billion to "Ukraine."
    The return of Vindman, clamoring to start World War III

    His previous claim to fame was as a witness who testified about former president Donald Trump's call to Ukrainian officials in the second impeachment trial of Trump.
    Vindman has now taken to the pages of Foreign Affairs to urge U.S. policymakers to "embrace the goal of Ukrainian victory" against Russia by throwing caution to the wind.
    The United States should provide Ukraine with weapons that can reach far inside Russia to destroy "militarily relevant targets" there.

      We have an exceedingly important and high level strategic interest in having Russia bloody itself in Ukraine. And it is key that the Ukrainians do the fighting. Not us. We've spent alot more money on stupider things. As much as I look at this administration as incompetent, some one does realize the importance of keeping Russia in a Ukranian quagmire.
