Highlights of the News

ITEM 1: State Farm financed and partnered with Gender Cool to put more LGBT material in elementary schools starting in kindergarten. "Like a good groomer, State Farm is there."

But State Farm was not alone in this grooming.

Also partnering were All State ("You're in pedo hands with All State"), General Mills ("The big G stands for groomer"), Dell ("Dude, you're getting a dress"), Capital One ("What's in your undies?"), the USDA (Uncle Sam's Deviant Agency) and 17 other companies.

Change LGBT to Christian values and watch the media rise in anger.

But the backlash against State Farm from parents and grandparents when this story broke on Monday sent the company scrambling.

I suggest the USDA and those 21 companies follow State Farm's lead and dump Gender Cool. CEOs need to wake up to the fact that the days of Woke are over.

ITEM 2The Institute for Energy Research reported, "Petroleum product shortages may be ahead as motorists, truck drivers, farmers and airlines are grappling with increasing demand for gasoline, diesel and jet fuel. Despite refiners focusing on diesel in lieu of gasoline this spring, a global diesel shortage is looming. 

"Refiners are planning to spend the summer increasing jet fuel and diesel production instead of gasoline because refining oil into diesel or jet fuel is currently more profitable than making gasoline despite those fuels historically being the least profitable parts of the barrel. Currently, the profit margin on distillates is nearly $60 a barrel, while the margin to make gasoline is $34. As a result, it is unclear what the availability or price of gasoline will be this summer as Americans increase gasoline demand by taking vacations as school lets out."

Looks like $10 a gallon gasoline by Independence Day.

And now, please rise, as Jackson Browne sings our new national anthem.

ITEM 3: Washington Post reported, "Southern Baptist leaders covered up sex abuse, kept secret database, report says."

As have public schools, Hollywood and Congress.

ITEM 4: The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported, "GOP jumps on Stacey Abrams’ comment calling Georgia ‘worst state to live in.’"

That the newspaper sees nothing wrong with calling Georgia the worst state tells you all you need to know about the paper.

ITEM 5: Columbia Journalism Review reported, "A few weeks ago,  the person behind the New York Times Pitchbot—not a bot at all, but a Twitter account whose posts satirize New York Times headlines and articles."

The story said, "He is a 52-year-old math professor and father of two who describes himself as a 'committed Democrat' of the 'slightly hardcore left.' He is anonymous on Twitter, and asked to remain so for this story, citing personal and professional concerns. (CJR contacted him via email and spoke with him on the phone, verifying his association with the Twitter account over direct message. He shared his real identity with CJR, which we verified with two other sources.)"

If he were a conservative, they would have named him. Of course, how many 52-year-old math professors are there in Rochester?

Outing critics on Twitter is what journalists do now.

I read these stories and hear the sound of dinosaurs as the meteor hits.


Their hypocrisy is so thick it is nearly impossible to parody them.

ITEM 6: i24 News reported, "Sale by Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal of 625 million shares of Kingdom Holding Company worth $1.5 billion

"A Saudi billionaire detained in a 2017 anti-graft crackdown is to sell a 16.87-percent stake of his company to a sovereign wealth fund run by the kingdom's crown prince, a statement said Sunday. 

"The sale by Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal of 625 million shares of the Riyadh-headquartered Kingdom Holding Company is worth roughly $1.5 billion, according to a regulatory filing published by the Saudi stock exchange, or Tadawul."

Pay up or go back to jail.


A reader called it the Batmobile, as if Bruce Wayne could afford one.

ITEM 7: Yahoo reported, "Arby's launches its first-ever burger made with premium American Wagyu beef."

Wagyu sells for $15 a pound.

Or what you will be paying for regular ground beef this fall.

ITEM 8: Life News reported, "A Pensacola, Florida, abortion facility that allegedly botched three abortions so badly that one woman had to be resuscitated and another had an emergency hysterectomy had its license suspended Saturday.

"The AP reports the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration issued the emergency order late last week, noting numerous problems at the American Family Planning of Pensacola that are 'endangering the health, safety and welfare' of its patients."

Roe didn't end back-alley abortions.

It legalized them.

ITEM 9: CNN lost $300 million on a streaming service that lasted less than a month.

Meanwhile, podcasters rake in the loot because they know what they are doing.

Podcast killed the cable-o star...

ITEM 10: The Free Press reported, "The National School Boards Association (NSBA) considered urging the Biden administration to deploy the military to school board meetings to monitor threats against board members in September 2021, according to an independent review conducted by attorneys.

"The NSBA sent a letter to the Biden administration Sept. 29, 2021, calling for the federal government to use anti-terrorism laws, including the Patriot Act, to treat violence and threats of violence against school board members as 'the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes.'

"However, in an earlier draft the NSBA called for the deployment of the national guard and the military police to monitor school board meetings before removing the language, according to the independent review of its decision to request federal authorities to monitor school board activities."

School boards love the public's money, but hate the public.

ITEM 11: Post Millennial reported, "Airlines struggling to find pilots to fill cockpits in planes across the country are considering lowering the bar for qualified fliers, including halving the number of hours required to become a pilot.

"The drop in requirements looks different across airlines. Delta airlines removed the 4-year college degree requirement in January, saying qualified fliers don't need a bachelor’s degree if they have relevant flight experience.

"Representatives from companies like Delta, American, and United have submitted requests to the Federal Aviation Administration to hire pilots with 750 flight hours instead of the customary 1,500."

But without a college degree how will they get their SJW indoctrination?


She would be in jail not for this, but for sending emails with state secrets to foreign governments who donated to her fake charity.

That was the scandal the Obama administration refused to prosecute.

ITEM 12CNN reported, "President Joe Biden said Monday that the United States would intervene militarily if China attempts to take Taiwan by force, a warning that appeared to deviate from the deliberate ambiguity traditionally held by Washington.

"The White House quickly downplayed the comments, saying they don’t reflect a change in US policy. It’s the third time in recent months – including during a CNN town hall in October – that Biden has said the US would protect Taiwan from a Chinese attack, only to have the White House walk back those remarks."

Remember, Joe Biden does not speak for the president.

ITEM 13: The House Ethics Committee announced, "In accordance with House Rule XI, clause 3, and Committee Rules 10(a)(2) and 18, the Committee unanimously voted on May 11, 2022, to establish an Investigative Subcommittee.  Pursuant to the Committee’s action, the Investigative Subcommittee shall have jurisdiction to determine whether Representative Madison Cawthorn may have: improperly promoted a cryptocurrency in which he may have had an undisclosed financial interest, and engaged in an improper relationship with an individual employed on his congressional staff."

Harrumph, harrumph.

Decades of insider deals by Nancy Pelosi's hubby go unchallenged, but a rookie congressman who was primaried will be expelled from Congress.

President Trump or DeSantis should name Cawthorn SEC chairman.

ITEM 14: NYT bragged, "A diplomat in Russia's mission to the United Nations in Geneva quit his post on Monday, expressing shame over Russia's invasion of Ukraine and describing it as a crime against both countries."

One of the amazing things is that after a century of backing Russia, liberals have become anti-Russian these past few years.

Not that I care. Putin is a pig as is Zelensky. I am just fascinated that the same people who sneered to Romney, "The 1980s called. It wants its foreign policy back" are waving the flag against Russia.

Of course, the flag they wave is Ukrainian, not American.

ITEM 15: The Washington Post bleated, "Again: There's no evidence Hillary Clinton triggered the Russia probe."

"There's no evidence" is a non-denial denial. 

The real news is the number of wagons circling to protect Her Hillaryness is down to NYT, NPR and WaPo.

READER UPDATE: The fellow who needs corn starch to keep his grandchildren alive, "Corn starch can be stored for only two months and the it quickly loses its potency for GSD. Otherwise we would have a year supply. It just decays and becomes useless. Doctors tell us to get rid of it if we have it past two months.

"We would have a ten year supply if it was still good." 

He is responding the commenter yesterday who asked why he didn't keep a year's supply.

ITEM 16: He sent a follow up email, "Nine years ago when Jimmy was born. The procedure was cornstarch and to prick his finger and take a blood sample every two hours around the clock. Though highly regulated -- there are always bad batches of corn starch that get through. The blood test was for back-up.  But we do know people who fell asleep and missed the blood text and unbeknownst to them it was a bad batch with little potency. 

"Taking two hours tests on a regular basis is monotonous and easy to fall asleep. So this could lead to a tragic situation.  But boy has it improved and is a lot easier now.  You see those commercials on TV where people with diabetes now where a patch.  It gives you an instant reading.  This can be of further use for GDS kids -- you can tie it into your I-phones -- so if his or her sugar collapses - buzzers go off through the whole house by an alarm system on the phones.  As you can expect - the life expectancy of these kids have risen - I notice there are more of them now.  And the parents can sleep at night - so can grand parents.  I mean this has all occurred in nine years.

"My grandson Jimmy was used as a guinea pig by the doctors and they learnt from dealing with him.  Two improvements due to him. He was basically the first GSD at the Hospital -- they now treat nine -- they live longer."

One of those nine is Jimmy's 5-year-old sister.

What can readers do? Pray. That works.

ITEM 17: Life News reported, "Gov. Ron DeSantis Has Appointed Three Conservative State Supreme Court Justices, 4th Coming Soon."

I am not going to say I want him to appoint a Supreme Court justice.

I am not going to say I want him to appoint a Supreme Court justice.

I am not going to say I want him to appoint a Supreme Court justice.

But I do.

ITEM 18: The Miami Standard reported, "America LAST: US Senate REJECTS $48 Billion Aid Package For Small Businesses and Restaurants Just Hours After Approving ANOTHER $40 Billion for Ukraine – 34 RINOs Voted Yes for Ukraine and No for Americans."

The longer Republicans stay in DC, the more Democrat they become.

FINALLY, Peter Gabriel has a plan for battling the latest pandemic.


  1. 1 - it has been real frustrating lately trying to apply for grants for our volunteer fire department. Money is available for woken causes - diversity, LBFTQRST+, environment, etc. and not for lifesaving equipment and protective gear for volunteers. I hope this signals a massive change.

    2 - fuck Joe Biden.

    10 - Run for office!! We need school boards filled with Surberites.

    12 - Dementia Joe strikes again.

    14 - the left has had the long knives out for Cawthorn since he arrived on the scene. Don’t know what’s true or not, but I don’t believe the media.

    1. I don't believe the media about Cawthorn. He's got his problems, but I just don't believe everything I have read.

    2. Yes, FJB. He is both evil and demented.

  2. 16 - thank you for the update. Will keep praying and hope they can find a cure for GDS. Until yesterday, I’d never heard of it.

    1. I am making $92 an hour working from home. i was greatly surprised at the same time as my neighbour advised me she changed into averaging $ninety five however I see the way it works now. I experience mass freedom now that I'm my non-public boss.
      that is what I do..

  4. #1 - Until wokeness is driven from corporations, the fight continues. Give it to them gooder and harder.

    1. Just dropped my auto insurance company of 40 years and told them off for grooming innocent children. Positive side - new auto insurance is $1,000/yr less for same coverage.

  5. #2 -- re petroleum shortages. Take a look around your home, a store or your office. So much is made with petroleum products that I don't think we would be able to function as a modern society. As for Brandon talking about the difficult transition away from fossil fuels by paying higher gas prices, FJB. No, it will not be worth it.

    1. Plastics are derived from petroleum. A world without plastics? I don't think so.

    2. Forget the number but it is something like 30% goes for gasoline/diesel/oil/etc... and 70% for industrial feedstocks. That 70% gets used to manufacture plastics, circuit boards, fertilizer, medicine, etc... The price of gasoline is just the tip of the iceberg.

    3. Green fantasies for sure.

    4. When the internal combustion engine was in its infancy, gasoline was a waste product from refining the oil.

  6. #4 Stacey Abrams -- If the place is so bad, why does she want to be governor? As a leftist, she would just run Georgia into the ground. Isn't she president of the Earth, or something?

  7. #5 -- re: Outing critics on Twitter is what journalists do now. You are too kind, Don. They are not journalists.

  8. re: Tweet of the Day: Yes, these very important people must fly around the world on their private planes to solve the problem of climate change. Like they say over on Insty: I'll start believing that climate change is a problem when all the right people starting ACTING like it's a problem.

    1. Just a bunch of pretentious hobnobbing between the government staff and wealthy people. Two peas in a pod who are largely insulated from the policies on which they insist are necessary to “save the planet.”

  9. re: READER UPDATE: I am not saying that fellow is wrong. But I am not sure that the two-months date is correct. Surely, it's still good for a while after that? I think the due dates are a guideline, not cast in stone. I have used months old cornstarch, but then my life does not depend on it.

    1. I took that to mean two months to be effective at controlling the blood sugar level. Cooking with cornstarch and using it for health reasons may have completely different requirements.

    2. It could well be. It also looks like you need to be constantly shopping for it and always checking the expiration dates. It is something that you plan for and don't do at the last minute.

    3. I was also surprised by the apparent short shelf life described (have used years-old cornstarch in cooking), but apparently is due to taste issues drinking the starch in solution. Below from University of Florida article on treating GSD -

      Important Notes about cornstarch:
      The cornstarch should be mixed with the fluid just prior to taking it.
      Heating/cooking will ruin the cornstarch.
      Mixing the cornstarch and beverage with a spoon is not recommended as
      cornstarch will stick to the spoon.
      Not all brands of cornstarch are created equally. In the US, the ARGO or
      Kingsford brand has been known to last the longest and taste the best.
      The cornstarch cannot be administered through continuous feeds as clogging
      of the feeding tube will occur.
      Your meal should be consumed prior to taking cornstarch to avoid feeling too
      full to consume your meal once the cornstarch has been provided. Food and
      cornstarch combined work to sustain adequate blood sugars and thus the two
      must be used together for optimal control.
      Cornstarch will go bad/stale after a period of time (approx 1 month). We do
      not recommend buying cornstarch in large bulk amounts that will last longer
      than that period of time. Also once you open a box of cornstarch keep the
      starch in a sealed, airtight container

  10. "Remember, Joe Biden does not speak for the president."

    Therein lies all the problems we are facing today.

    1. As I have said, Brandon is both evil and demented.

  11. re: AD of the day: Trump always gets the last laugh.

  12. #8 -- re: botched abortions. That item also made me think of the butcherer, Kermit Gosnell. Just because they are legal doesn't mean that abortions are always safe.

    1. How can something that kills half of those receiving it be safe? Nearly 100% of the children, and a number of the murderous mothers perish.

  13. #18 - America last indeed. Primary these folks.

  14. #9 - I'm OK with podcasters making millions and making more than cable and TV news hosts. I think media need to become entrepreneurial to survive and redefine as more honest brokers. The one thing I would say about podcasts, though, is that I just can't commit the time to listen to someone for longer than a hour. Even that, I rarely do. Life is very busy for most people. There are enough hours in the day for me, never mind committing to listening to hours of podcasts.

    1. I meant to say there aren't enough hours in the day for me. I am guessing it's like that for most people even as we get older.

  15. re: FINALLY item: I am a huge fan of Peter Gabriel, but I was never crazy about that song, but it does fit.

    1. The Melting Face album (III) is landmark ‘80s Art Punk. Not one cymbal on the whole album!

    2. I don't know about the whole album. I'll take your word for it. I don't hear a cymbal in Shock the Monkey. It is very 80s indeed.

  16. #6: Yes, the $5M Bugatti Bolide produces "INSANE SOUNDS." But is it electric?

  17. The rule requiring 1500 hours for airline pilots was stupid to begin with. It sure doesn't take near that to talk on the radio and turn knobs and push buttons while under the supervision of a more experienced pilot. I could do that when I only had probably two hundred hours. And yes in a pinch I damn sure could land the thing in a emergency.

  18. ITEM 8: I just might have a smidgen of respect for pro-abortion people if they were honest and said they want to kill their unborn babies.

  19. #8 -- re botched abortions -- Reminds of that butcherer, Kermit Gosnell. Just because they are legal, doesn't mean abortions are safe.

  20. re: 18 -- The Uniparty. Primary them.

  21. re: TWEET of the day with the elites flying their private planes to DAVOS to solve climate change: Like they say over on Insty, I'll believe in climate change when all of the right people start ACTING like it's a problem. (sic)

  22. re: Podcasters getting higher salaries than cable and TV hosts. Great! Media needs to be more entrepreneurial and reinvent itself as an honest broker. What I would say about podcasts, though, is that there aren't enough hours in the day to listen to them. Some of them are just too long. I don't want to make the time. I have enough trouble packing in everything I need and want to do every day.

  23. re: AD of the day: Trump always gets the last laugh.

  24. re: Peter Gabriel and Shock the Monkey. I am a huge fan but it's not one of my favorite songs. It looks like monkeypox is a sexually transmitted disease. Reminds of the beginning of the AIDS era. I'll let you all fill in the blanks.

    1. I remember when this was Don Surber's blog.

    2. It is his blog. What's your point? What's the difference if I comment separately or put them all together?

    3. Why not make 100 posts, or 200? Did you close your Facebook account?

    4. You do you. I'll do me. End of your story.

    5. We need Herr Doktor Fauci (PBUH) to take the lead on this. That'll solve the problem!

    6. A Jew must have upset the Knife today. Hope it was me.

  25. --Apologies for being off topic but our Indigenous peoples just told Justin that he is fake. Hahahahahahah!

  29. World Ecommunist Forum? Is that like the Babylon Bee?

  30. Donald John Trump is still our president.

    1: the days of Woke are over.

    They were never really there. Nobody likes any of this and it's been going on for 50 years. It just took people like Trump and Desantis to finally stand up to it.

    8: You noticed.

    10: I can just see a platoon of Rangers called in and taking the side of the parents

    12: Brandon gives loose cannons a bad name.

    13: Harrumph, harrumph.

    I didn't get a harrumph outta that guy.

    Relax your sphincters, sir. Just think of your secretary.

    15: Right up there with I was in Switzerland during that war.

    18: The longer Republicans stay in DC, the more Democrat they become.

    That's because they're Whigs.

  31. Looks like $10 a gallon gasoline by Independence Day."
    Saudi Arabia Signals Backing For Russia In OPEC+
    Saudi energy minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman told the Financial Times in an interview published on May 22 that he sees Russia as an integral part of the OPEC+ group of oil producers, adding that politics should be kept out of the alliance.

  32. Of course, the flag they wave is Ukrainian, not American."

    Thank the Lord I am not Ukrainian.
    The most corrupt country in Europe, headed by a president puppet of the US, with Ukrainians dying in a US proxy war against Russia and home to US built bioweapons labs and Nazi militia trained by the US.

  33. I didn't read all the comments so I can't be sure but I did raise the subject. I'd like to say that I never intended to cast aspersions on the guy doing due diligence for his child. Just checking cause there are so many grifters. Now his position makes a lot more sense. I take it this stuff doesn't freeze or vacuum store either. Man that's a bitch. Does he have an org that is helping him and others that can be donated to? or does he himself have something set up?
    I can relate a little bit I'm in my elder years and it's been brought to my attention that a couple of the chemicals I must ingest to fend off death may become short in supply if we get into a affray with China. And the kinks in the supply chain are also making me aware of how quickly my life (and others) could become very short and very uncomfortable during that time. Prayers for this gentleman and apologies if I inadvertently made him feel worse than he already does. Please excuse my ignorance. I would think Don would post something we could donate to if it's allowed.

  34. Item 14; "Not that I care. Putin is a pig as is Zelensky. "
    So is Biden, Pelosi, Stoltenberg, Corbyn, ......

    1. Can we add Cheney, Murkowski, Romney, Collins and McConnell to that as well? Then never touch pork again?


  35. 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..
