Highlights of the News

ITEM 1: Stephen Colbert got covid.

Again.

Bill Gates got it too. They gave the gratuitous I'm-glad-I-got-vaccinated line. The vaccinations were oversold -- by them.

ITEM 2: Republican Congressman Alex Mooney defeated Republican Congressmen David McKinley in the West Virginia primary. McKinley becomes the first congressman voted out of office this year.

It was a musical chairs primary as West Virginia lost one of its three congressional districts in the 2020 Census. The Republican establishment split Mooney's district between the two other districts as it still considers Mooney to be a carpetbagger because he moved in from Maryland.

After McKinley voted for a bipartisan January 6 witch hunt, Trump backed Mooney, who won easily. 

Manchin and Governor Jim Justice endorsed McKinley, who is a nice guy but at 74 he really should go home.

The media and the pundits never do a piece on non-Obama D's.

The Washington Post misinformed readers, "Rep. David B. McKinley (R-W.Va.) lost his bid for a seventh term on Tuesday because he voted for the bipartisan infrastructure bill. His double-digit defeat in West Virginia’s GOP primary, which largely turned on infrastructure spending, best illustrates why President Biden’s governing theory has failed."

No mention was made of McKinley's witch hunt vote. Hey, why tell the truth when you can spin a narrative?

ITEM 3: Slate reported, "Elon Musk’s apparent decision to restore former President Donald Trump’s privileges to post on Twitter if his purchase of the company closes is a dangerous one for American democracy. And there’s one group that has by far the best chance to prevent it from happening and who must organize and act: Twitter’s employees."

These are the same liberals who up until last month insisted Twitter is a private company that can do anything it wants.

This is not a threat to democracy. This is a threat to the deep state government to which Slate and Big Media swear their allegiance.

ITEM 4: WESH reported, "A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed last week against Gov. Ron DeSantis, in reference to his administration's decision to revoke Disney's self-governing power.

"A group of people was suing state leaders over the decision to get rid of Disney's Reedy Creek District, saying it was only passed to punish Disney, and subsequently taxpayers.

"U.S. District Court Judge Cecilia Altonaga explained in a report that she threw the suit out because it's an issue that falls in the state's jurisdiction and because the law won't go into effect until July 2022."

Bush 43 appointee.

ITEM 5: No abortion, no exception.

Here's an idea: adopt a kid rather than push abortion.

ITEM 6: The Tampa Bay Times reported, "For the second time in 11 months, the Florida House voted on Thursday to send a bill to Gov. Ron DeSantis that would strip Florida’s newspapers of legal notice revenue.

"Some lawmakers said the move is a jab at publications that sometimes publish stories and editorials critical of the Republican leadership in Florida."

Third paragraph quoted a Democrat legislator verbatim, "The free press here in the free state of Florida isn’t reporting what the governor’s communications director wants it to report."

Fourth paragraph paraphrased supporters: "Supporters of the measure say it shouldn’t be the state’s job to make local governments subsidize newspapers. They say the measure will make notices more widely accessible to Floridians — who may or may not subscribe to a newspaper."

The headline said, "Did the Florida Legislature pass this bill to punish newspapers? Some lawmakers say yes."

That's not journalism.

That's advocacy.

The people who pay for legal notices largely are citizens probating wills, trustee notices and the like. Post them online. West Virginia does

ITEM 7: Fox reported, "South Carolina man dies of heart attack while burying girlfriend he killed, authorities say."

Me (to wife): Honey, this is why I could never kill you.

ITEM 8The New York Post reported, "A transgender woman who bragged about her light sentence on a kiddie-molestation rap has now been charged with murder in connection with a 2019 robbery, authorities said Tuesday.

"Hannah Tubbs, 26, hit the headlines in January when she pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl in the bathroom of a Palmdale, Calif., Denny’s in 2014 when she was 17."

He's a pervert who should be put away for life.

If he is guilty of murder, that life should be cut short.

ITEM 9: Politico reported, "Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen on Tuesday argued that banning abortion would be very damaging for the economy by reducing women’s ability to balance their careers and their families."

The balance would be 100% career, 0% family.

I see where having a child did not stop her career.

We know why all these big companies (Amazon, Tesla and the rest) are willing to pay for abortions. They want to turn their female employees into childless drones whose life revolves around work, work, work.

ITEM 10Kane at Citizen Free Press reported, "Wikipedia removes Kathy Barnette page one week before election…"

This shows the left would rather face Turkey Lurky Dr. Oz than an actual Trump supporter.

ITEM 11: NYT reported, "A Baby Formula Shortage Leaves Desperate Parents Searching for Food."

The story said, "The shortage became acute with a recall of a defective brand this year after at least four babies were hospitalized with bacterial infection and at least two babies died. But the recall has been exacerbated by relentless supply-chain woes and labor shortages. The Datasembly research found that the national out-of-stock rate for baby formula reached 43% for the week ending Sunday, up 10% from last month’s average.

"Republicans have seized on the widening anxiety among parents to blame President Biden, arguing that the administration has not done enough to ramp up production. On Tuesday, Senator Mitt Romney of Utah sent a letter to the Food and Drug Administration and the Department of Agriculture, asserting that federal officials have been too slow to respond.

"The F.D.A., which is leading the federal response, said officials were working with Abbott Nutrition, the company involved in the recall, to restart production at its plant in Sturgis, Mich. The agency said it had been meeting regularly with various infant formula manufacturers to increase production capacity and urging retailers to consider placing sales limits on infant formula products."

People are starting to believe these shortages (good luck getting canned cat food) are deliberate. There have been 20 fires/plane crashes/et cetera that shut down food processing facilities so far this year.

These were the same people who told me Russian Collusion was a hoax, the vaccine wasn't as effective as advertised, and Hunter's laptop was real.

ITEM 12AP reported, "Actor and activist James Cromwell has gone from Succession’s Uncle Ewan to real-life supergluin’ — pasting his hand to a midtown Manhattan Starbucks counter on Tuesday to protest the coffee chain’s extra charge for plant-based milk."

The man has a net worth of $8 million.

And he is too cheap to pay a little extra for his fake milk?

The manager should have just ignored him and let him figure his way out.

ITEM 13Senator Josh Hawley announced that he "introduced the Copyright Clause Restoration Act, a new bill to strip woke corporations like Disney of special copyright protections. Senator Hawley’s bill would limit new copyright protections to 56 years and make the change retroactive for massive corporations like Disney that have been granted unnecessarily long copyright monopolies."

Bwahaha House of Mouse.

ITEM 14Washington Free Beacon reported, "Around 70 Harvard faculty members slammed the elite college's newspaper, the Crimson, for its endorsement of the anti-Semitic movement to boycott Israel.

"In an open letter sent Monday, the faculty members, including former Treasury secretary and Harvard president Larry Summers, excoriated the Crimson‘s endorsement of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, saying they are 'concerned about the long-term impact of this recent staff editorial on the morale and well-being of Jewish and Zionist students at Harvard.'"

Once upon a time, colleges would expel anti-Semites.

ITEM 15: CNBC reported, "President Joe Biden said he could drop some of the tariffs imposed against Chinese imports to help control rising consumer prices in the U.S. — just as Wall Street braces for another inflation report north of 8%.

"The White House is reviewing the penalties imposed under former President Donald Trump — which raised prices on everything from diapers to clothing and furniture — and could opt to remove them altogether, Biden said in addressing the nation from Washington on Tuesday."

How much did Chairman Xi pay Hunter to get Biden to say that?

FINALLY, Biden called us Ultra MAGA.

Woo-hoo!

My pronouns now are Ultra MAGA and Deplorable.

  28. Mr. Surber, you wrote, “[A]dopt a kid rather than push abortion.” There are a number of reasons why that won’t work.

    Chiefly, those pushing abortion should never be allowed to adopt or have kids. They’ll inculcate their so-called values onto those children. As a result, most of whom will become worse adults than their adopted parents. So, I don’t want abortion-pushers anywhere near children. If I were in charge, they’d have to carry bells.

    Secondly, it won’t work because abortion-pushers believe in abortion to any age you can name. There is no reason to expose children to the dangers of being in a household dominated by an abortion-pusher.

    Finally, abortion-pushers hate themselves and hate everyone else. No child should be that kind of an environment.

    You also said something that I think hits at the core of the problem: “We know why all these big companies (Amazon, Tesla and the rest) are willing to pay for abortions. They want to turn their female employees into childless drones whose life revolves around work, work, work.”

    My pronoun is HRH. Take that, king of England!

  37. The women who abort fall into two very different groups.
    1 group does it because they cannot afford another mouth to feed or take care of for 18 mo. or so till they're older because they work 2 or 3 jobs already and if they're on welfare contrary to popular belief that don't pay for everything you need.

    The other group doesn't want to put a dent in their career or their bod and party time as a kid even if you're going to adopt them out will take up 10 mos of your life and a lot of visits to doctors and being careful of what you eat and drink and also they don't like the prospect of having to exercise and work out in hopes of reducing the skin stretch and the fat that accumulates with a pregnancy.

    This is what makes the subject very emotional as on one hand we have ego and narcissism and on the other we have poor planning making bad decisions on who to let into your bed.
