Highlights of the News

ITEM 1: Has anyone thought of moving Disney World to Epstein's Island to avoid the wrath of that mean old Ron DeSantis?

Or Kandahar. I mean who ever heard of a 9-year-old having a fiancรฉ? 

The price of Biden surrendering Afghanistan to the Taliban keeps going up. 

ITEM 2: The San Francisco Chronicle reported, "After decades of negotiation, the largest dam-removal project in U.S. history is expected to begin in California’s far north next year.

"The first of four aging dams on the Klamath River, the 250-mile waterway that originates in southern Oregon’s towering Cascades and empties along the rugged Northern California coast, is on track to come down in fall 2023. Two others nearby and one across the state line will follow.

"The nearly half-billion dollars needed for the joint state, tribal and corporate undertaking has been secured. The demolition plans are drafted. The contractor is in place. Final approval could come by December."

A state that faces rolling blackouts in the summer and water shortages year-round is blowing up its hydroelectric dams.

You know how to fix the national grid? Remove California because it is an energy-sucking machine. If Californians want to live in the 19th century, let them.

ITEM 3: Media-ite whined, "Almost 70% of Republican voters say the House of Representatives should impeach President Joe Biden if their party takes over the chamber in the 2022 midterms — doubling the number of all other Americans who say the same.

"Former President Donald Trump was impeached twice, the second time for inciting the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol. Overwhelming majorities of Americans believe the actions surrounding that event are a crime — over 71% in one recent poll.

"A roughly equal percentage of Americans (66%) do not believe that President Biden should be impeached if Republicans retake the majority in November — perhaps as a consequence of the fact that Biden has not been credibly accused of any crimes in office."

Hunter Biden collected millions in bribes for his father.

Clown Media like Media-ite pretend that a rally of 200,000 people at the national mall was an insurrection while decades of international corruption are no big deal. 

ITEM 4: The Sun reported, "Monkeypox outbreak explodes across Europe as cases in Spain and Italy traced to island festival with 80,000 revelers."

It was a gay pride festival.

Now we know why Pride is a deadly sin.

ITEM 5: A longtime reader wrote about Glycogen Storage Disease and Biden’s incompetence. His grandkids have this ailment.

The reader said, "GSD is the short term for it. Years ago if kids got it they just died  Now with advancements kids can have a normal life. A Doctor David Weinstein is working on a cure with stem cell therapy. But until a cure is put into use (experimental stage now) to survive the kids need ingestion of cornstarch once every four hours. Reason being is with this disease the body cannot store sugar.

"Cornstarch is used because it is slow to digest and can last four hours. Five hours without cornstarch -- the kids go into convulsions. Six hours they are dead. It’s been a long haul and we are hoping for cure in five years. It affects about one birth per 100,000.  Jimmy is now nine and Anna is five. Found out this weekend in addition to baby milk shortage, there is a cornstarch shortage. Has not reach critical state yet but I would like to know what the hell is going on?"

He sent pictures. They are beautiful children.

The elitists don't care. We are dirt to them. Black, white, male, female, LGBT -- the elitists do not care. They just want power.

ITEM 6The media continues its anti-Semitic streak.

The IDF goes out of its way to fight an actual insurrection with a minimum of collateral damage. A fair, just and impartial press would give the IDF the benefit of the doubt.

That is not the media we have, however.

ITEM 7: A reader wrote to complain about Item 10 in Saturday's Highlights of the News about Ukrainian wheat.

He said, "Ukraine's annual wheat production is about 26 million tons a year. Sounds like a lot and it puts Ukraine ahead of Germany but behind Pakistan. 26 million tons is not nothing but it is close. It is about 3% of total world production and less than the normal year to year variability in total world production."

He's right.

I will be more careful in the future.

But the numbers raise the question: If wheat is so important to Africa, why are so few African countries growing any?

We are being misinformed on food production, just as they misinform us about climate change, covid and this Russo-Ukrainian war.

ITEM 8: The masquerade continues.

The fall of the American empire will come without emperors. Just old goats.

ITEM 9: The Pennsylvania primary was six days ago. Still no winner because Democrat judges ignored the law and allow mail-in ballots without postmarks to come trickling in.

President Trump tweeted on his social media outlet, "So, what’s going on with Pennsylvania? Five days now, and watched over by incompetent Democrat Gubernatorial Candidate Josh Shapiro. The entire Nation of France was done during the evening of the ONE DAY Presidential Election. USED PAPER BALLOTS, no discrepancies. ARE WE A THIRD WORLD NATION??? Are we becoming Venezuela (YES!)."

We need to go back to voting at the courthouse or on Election Day at the polls because both parties can watch the votes being cast and object to any that seem illegal.

ITEM 10J.D. Rucker wrote, "Progressive HBO show host Bill Maher is sounding more red-pilled every day. By no means am I suggesting he’s suddenly conservative or that he’ll be joining Elon Musk in switching to voting for Republicans any time soon. But the leftist show host has not stayed silent about the Democrats’ increasingly radical agenda, especially when it comes to the fact that they’re using our kids as lab rats, attempting to indoctrinate them into embracing a LGBTQIA+ lifestyle.

"'According to a recent Gallup poll, less than 1% of Americans born before 1946, that’s Joe Biden’s generation, identify that way, 2.6% of Boomers do, 4.2% of Gen X, 10.5% of Millennials and 20.8% of Gen Z, which means if we follow this trajectory, we will all be gay in 2054,' he said on his show. 'I’m just saying that when things change this much this fast, people are allowed to ask, 'What’s up with that?'"

It is grooming. America needs to stop it. Either public schools ban LGBT indoctrination or we ban public schools.

ITEM 11: Fox reported, "Elon Musk moving Twitter to Miami would be the icing on the cake, says Miami mayor."

Mayor Francis Suarez said, "So the pitch is you want to move to the city with the lowest taxes, lowest crime rate. Best quality of life that embraces success. You know, cities across America are pushing out-famously- New York pushed out Amazon not too long ago and San Francisco pushed out Elon Musk, we are a city that is fundamentally pro-free market. 

"We believe that the American dream is one where people can do whatever it is that they want to do and be successful. That's not something you should be ashamed of, it's not something you should, you know, you should run from or hide from. And so I think that's one of the things that's made Miami so unique. We've brought so much capital to scale and grow companies here. 

"We just think that, you know, Elon's acquisition of Twitter would be a perfect sort of icing on the cake if he were to move it to Miami, because Miami is the freest city in America, the most successful city in America. And I think him bringing Twitter here and revolutionizing Twitter to make it, you know, a better platform is something that would dovetail nicely with Miami."

He's a Republican. 44. The next DeSantis?

ITEM 12: Elon Musk tweeted, "Tesla is building a hardcore litigation department where we directly initiate & execute lawsuits. The team will report directly to me. 

"Please send 3 to 5 bullet points describing evidence of exceptional ability.


"My commitment:

"- We will never seek victory in a just case against us, even if we will probably win. 

"- We will never surrender/settle an unjust case against us, even if we will probably lose.

"Looking for hardcore streetfighters, not white-shoe lawyers like Perkins or Cooley who thrive on corruption. 

"There will be blood."

Republicans need to do the same. The party need to recruit tough lawyers for their next administration because they must learn from last time.

ITEM 13: Jonathan Turley reported, "National Science Teachers Association Guide Advises Against the Use of Parent, Male, Female, Mother and Father."

Science, eh?

Under Disney ownership, ABC would cancel Ben Casey today.

ITEM 14: Notes From The Bunker reported that boneless skinless chicken breast started the year at $1.98 a pound at the local store and hit $2.78 last week.

That is a 40% increase in 5 months.

Oh and the store limits people to 4 packages. 

Well, my investment in an S&P 500 index fund should keep me abreast of rising chicken prices. (Checks portfolio. Down 18% since January.)

We are so screwed.

ITEM 15: The Washington Free Beacon reported, "Whitmer Pledged To Cut Her Pay for Duration of Pandemic. She Gave Up After Five Months. Michigan Democrat ended her salary sacrifice even as her pandemic restrictions dragged on."

A reader said, "To be fair, that’s just because she’s dishonest, selfish, and awful."

ITEM 16The New York Post reported, "A sidewalk accordion player is making Upper West Siders sing the blues. Russian-born Vadim Klimenko set up shop on West 74th Street and Broadway about a year ago, cranking out classics such as Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head and America from West Side Story for hours on end."

Rachel Rodgers told the paper, "I didn’t sign up for this when choosing to live here and I don’t think the noise level is appropriate."

The story said, "Rodgers said she filed a complaint with the 20th Precinct last year about the maddening polka-geist."

The story included a picture of NYPD officers talking to the musician, Meanwhile, violent crime is soaring in New York.

Remember, Highlights of the News is your source for accordion news.

Oh and curling too. The Curling News reported, "Japan and Scotland are the World Junior curling champions for 2022." Japs got the women's title, Scots the men's.

ITEM 17: Meanwhile, on Twitter, the hypocrisy continues.

"Gregg Gonsalves works at Yale focusing on operations research/epidemiology for infectious disease. In the real world: been an AIDS activist for ~30 yrs. Assoc. Prof YSPH."

He tweeted that his critics are homophobes. Sure Jan.

ITEM 18: Fox reported, "SF Examiner editorial board demands Pope remove archbishop who barred Pelosi from communion over abortion."

To show the pope they mean business, the editorial board members can hold their breaths till they turn blue.

ITEM 19: KPLC reported, "Marijuana violations have taken over 10,000 truck drivers off the road this year, adding more supply chain disruptions."

Legalize pot, they said.

Pot taxes will pay for schools, they said.

What harm could it do?

FINALLY, Todd Starnes reported, "The Wisconsin GOP state convention straw poll voters this weekend favored Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis over former President Donald Trump for the 2024 presidential nomination.

"DeSantis drew a 38% plurality of support, while Trump came in second at 32% and former South Carolina GOP Gov. Nikki Haley was third at just 7%."

Americans like new.

Also, DeSantis is kicking it in Florida. He has Disney and the LGBT crowd on the run.


  1. For his own safety I recommend Greg Gonsalves invest in a HANS device. A HANS device (head and neck support device) is a type of head restraint, a safety device in motorsports. Head restraints are mandatory when competing with most major motorsports sanctioning bodies. They reduce the likelihood of head or neck injuries, including the often fatal basilar skull fracture, in the event of a crash. There are many such devices on the market today, but the HANS is the original and the most common.

    1. I had a COL (chuckle out loud) when Mr. Yale-Gay-lousy writer used the term "pampered status"

    2. I had to punch up John Lee Hooker’s “It Serves You Right To Suffer” after reading that item. Now we know why gays groom. Duh. Extinction Rebellion!

    3. I read on a news site that the CDC has no idea why the monkeypox is spreading- mysterious.
      Call Dr. Fauxi, our modern Ben Casey.๐Ÿ™„

    4. They may be homophobes, but it doesn't mean they're wrong.

  2. Opener, she voiced her jealousy when she saw him petting his favorite goat.
    #4. A pox on those who monkey around.

    1. I'm surprised they haven't tried this story to the obuma pic next to the ape pic (those racist bastards!)

  3. #11. Don, I'd suggest you take a closer look at Mayor Suarez. I live in South Florida; there is no way anyone elected to office in Dade or Broward counties could possible be a budding DeSantis. The electorate would never permit it. The Miami and Fort Lauderdale "newspapers" blast DeSantis several times a week.

    1. Tom: Absolutely. And bear in mind that Mayor Suarez is currently attending the World Order conference in Davos. This is NOT the kind of person we need when considering who is good for America.

    2. Hey Brian: Yes he is. Note, however, that anyone having Trumpish views is not electable in either county. Miami-Dade is gradually drifting to the right but there is no sign of that in FtLaud-Broward. Similar to the tightrope that Collins has to walk in Maine; one mis-step and there is a Dem Senator replacing her.

    3. Tom, good point re the ancient Collins.

  4. 4 - Prepare for calls for lockdowns. Resist we much.

    5 - I will pray for a cure and fuck Joe Biden.

    6 - I had to shower after following the link. What a site. Must be the first stop each morning for Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.

    12 - “There will be blood”. I think so more and more each day.

    13 - under Disney today, Dr. Ben Casey would transform into Dr. Bennetta Casey, a specialist in addadicktome’s and chopadickoffame’s (thanks Rush).

    17 - I am an idiotphobe. Mr. Gonsalves is an idiot.

    1. I make more then $12,000 a month online. It’s enough to comfortably replace my old jobs income, especially considering I only work about 11 to 12 hours a week from home. I was amazed how easy it was after I tried it…
      AND GOOD LUCK.:)


  5. As can be gleaned from ู‚ู†ุฏู‡ุงุฑ the city of Qandahar begins with the Middle Eastern Q as opposed to K. Q is pronounced by running the hard g and k together.

    But only try this under the supervision of a licensed speech therapist, or you could discombobulate your entire speech center and end up talking like Joe Biden. Im a trained proffessional, so I can actually make this sound

  6. Saw someone else post this elsewhere, but when pronouncing Monkey pox, remember that the K is silent.

  7. FINALLY: Your "Americans like new" is getting old.

  8. 5 - I’ll pray for a cure. And fuck Joe Biden.

    6 - I had to shower off after reading that site. It must be the first stop of the day for Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.

    12 - “there will be blood”. Seems truer every day.

  9. 13 - the show would be renamed Dr. Benetta Casey, Trans-surgeon. Specializing in addadicktome’s and chopadickoffame’s (thanks Rush).

    17 - I’m an idiotphobe. Gonsalves is an idiot.

  10. I feel for those folks with children who have to have that corn starch. I do have to say that if my children had this disease, I'd have at least a years supply on hand and more if there is the money for the storage. You can't expect other people to provide your solutions all the time.
    It's nice when they do and in the US that's something that happens almost automatically. Nonetheless you must be prepared if you know you have a mandatory requirement then you are responsible for securing a supply.

  11. It's gonna be fun when folks start showing up with those lesions on their face, hands and legs. It will be obvious who has this disease and I think there will be problems. We'll see how compassionate and discriminatory the left/Gay really is.

  12. Item 16: For you Gary Larson fans, remember his cartoon with God welcoming people to heaven and the devil welcoming people to hell.
    GOD: Welcome to heaven. Here's your harp.
    Devil: Welcome to hell. Here's your accordion.

  13. Item 16: it's Karen Rodgers, not Rachel Rodgers.
    Item 14: in my little corner of Western NY there were always a few houses that had chickens in the yard and a coop off to the side. This year it's multiplied by a factor of 10. Same thing with gardens.

  14. "SF Examiner editorial board demands Pope remove archbishop who barred Pelosi from communion over abortion."
    There are 25 Catholics in the US Senate. 14 voted to codify Roe. All Dems.

    1. There are 9 Ashkenazi Jews in the Senate. All Dems. All voted to codify Roe.

    2. Yes, but only one Archbishop Sal altho I see his brother in Denver publicly supported his decision. I've seen nothing from the other American bishops.

  15. The price of Biden surrendering Afghanistan to the Taliban keeps going up. "

    The Afghanistan Papers are a set of interviews relating to the US war in Afghanistan prepared by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) and published by The Washington Post in 2019 following a Freedom of Information Act request. The documents reveal that high-ranking officials generally held the opinion that the war was unwinnable while keeping this view hidden from the public.
    Due to the difficulty of creating objective metrics to demonstrate success, information was manipulated for the duration of the conflict

  16. #7. Rhodesia was once the breadbasket of Africa. Then it became Zimbabwe. What changed? White farms were confiscated. Now Zimbabwe is the basket case of Africa. The same thing is happening in South Africa. This is why Africa can't grow wheat. - GOC

  17. (Checks portfolio. Down 18% since January.)
    We are so screwed."

    Get out of the stock market! The greatest finance bubble in history is deflating. High flying tech stocks will crash 90%.
    Commodities will continue to boom.

    1. Diversify always. Oil has done pretty well. If you want to play grain futures go for it, but make sure you know what you are doing. If you screw up you actually have to take possession. LOL!. I would not recommend selling a stock portfolio unless you just have to have the cash. It will eventually rebound, why sell at a loss. In a few months there will be opportunity to buy.

    2. Disagree. Stock market is terrible during commodity booms. Check out the 1970's and 2000-2008. Commodities are severely under-invested.

    3. RIde it out. This has happened before and the stock market always comes back. Now...if you need the money that is different.

    4. Most people have no idea on how to do commodities. They are tricky and open to huge swings.

    5. Back in the 70's, someone I knew had stocks that tanked. 25¢ and the cost of selling made them less than zero. When he got his dividend check, it was something like $20 a share. He had over a thousand shares btw. They offered him the option to purchase additional stock. He reinvested half. By 1987 when I heard the story, he was a multi millionaire.
      Unless a company isn't keeping up with technology, ride it out.

  18. Item 7 - The problem just isn't Ukrainian wheat production. Russian wheat production is higher I believe - at number 3. And right now not much of it can get out because of restricted shipping. Ukraine only comes in at the 8th highest in the world. Losing it by itself would be manageable; added with Russian wheat being essentially off the market, and India hinting it will seriously restrict exports (number 2 producer). And of course it was already expected that fertilizer issues will reduce the harvest. China is the largest producer, and how much they export I don't know, but they don't show up on a top 15 list I just searched on.

    Two of the top 5 wheat exporters are Russia (#1) and Ukraine (#5). So I'd say losing most of what these two countries export will be a significant worldwide problem.

    The only country who can really flex our harvest is US and maybe Canada - the 4th and 5th biggest producers. And the fertilizer and fuel issues impact well.

  19. Item 14 - boneless chicken breasts.

    They're the best cut of the chicken. For many years, I watched the law of supply and demand at work, as wings were cheaper than boneless chicken breasts. It changed a few years ago, but it was interesting to see how the worst part of the chicken was more expensive than the best part.

    1. Boneless chicken breasts are getting expensive and hard to find, however, spineless congressional pu**ies are still readily available and can be bought cheap.

    2. It's all a question of how much China is willing to pay for a chicken shit congress critter.

  20. Donald John Trump is still our president.

    1: The price will be paid by the Afghans.

    5: They just want power.

    The people of the world are revolting.

    8: And what about gloves? Isn't shaking hands one of the dirtiest things you can do?

    The fall of the American empire will come without emperors.

    Bring back the American republic. It's been gone for 157 years.

    12: Wave of the Trumplican future.

    In the immortal words of Robert Rogers, "Kill 'em quick, kill 'em dead, and kill 'em all".

    16: Well, it is, after all, an accordion.

    PS Woman's name ought to be Karen.

    19: Toldja. And guess what?

    Every statistic you could imagine that could be collateral damage involved with marijuana has gone through the roof.

    FINALLY: I don't think Ron is done in FL and, as far as new and old, I'm betting another The Donald-Brandon race goes to The Donald. As did the first.

    But we still need him now, not in 3 years.

  21. Google pay 97$ per hour my last pay check was $8500 working 1o hours a week online. My younger brother friend has been averaging 12k for months now and he works about 22 hours a week. I cant believe how easy it was once I tried it outit..
    :) AND GOOD LUCK.:)


  22. Republicans need to do the same. The party need to recruit tough lawyers for their next administration because they must learn from last time.
    does Constitution allow tough lawyering?

  23. #10. We watched a movie called 'better nate than ever', a musical about a boy trying to make it into show business. When a girl tried to be his girlfriend, he said, "I am not like that." He bought a rabbits foot with the gay flag colors on it, prominently displayed on his back pack. I forget the third comment, but it was pretty blatant. No grooming. None at all.

  24. "Money pox." Sounds like a Federal Reserve program in 2022 to enhance financial inflation.


  25. I get paid over 190$ 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. Heres what I've been doing..
    :) AND GOOD LUCK.:)
