Highlights of the News

ITEM 1: Government Executive reported, "EPA Employees Told to Stop Pooping in the Hallway."

The pooping in the hallways is in a Denver regional office, not San Francisco.

EPA now stands for Everyone Poop Anywhere.

ITEM 2: National Review lamented, "Why Didn’t Democrats Codify Roe When They Had the Chance?"

For the same reason they didn't codify slavery.

ITEM 3: Just the News reported, "Gas prices continued their modest decline over the past week ahead of the July 4 holiday, coming down from just below a $5-per-gallon average while remaining significantly higher than a year ago. 

"Average national gas prices tracked by AAA put the average gallon of gas in the United States at $4.84 per gallon, down from $4.85 yesterday and $4.92 a week ago."

That's good news for drivers and Democrats. This likely reflects a drop in demand.

ITEM 4: America First Legal announced it is suing Loudoun County Public Schools, its superintendent and its school board on behalf of 11 parents, "for the district’s deliberate, egregious and systemic violation of parents’ rights."

Its allegations include:

  • Requiring schools and teachers as a matter of policy to deceive parents and secretly promote and facilitate a child’s gender transition.
  • Requiring schools as a matter of policy to provide children with psychological or psychiatric counseling and treatment without parental knowledge or consent.
  • Soliciting and obtaining information about student attitudes, habits, traits, opinions, beliefs or feelings regarding sensitive regulated topics such as sex, religion, race, and familial relationships without either express prior parental consent or a direct relationship to academic instruction.
  • Invidiously using racial “balancing” and quotas to favor some children at the expense of others.
  • Illegally hiding information about school operations and curriculum from parents.
  • Illegally charging exorbitant fees and/or claiming legally deficient exemptions to Freedom of Information Act Requests. 
  • Retaliating and discriminating against parents and children whose beliefs do not align with the woke LCPS agenda.

When did schools become the enemy of schoolchildren? We used to complain that Johnny can't read. In the 21st century, Johnny cannot even tell if he is a boy or a girl.

ITEM 5: Fox reported, "Chick-fil-A is America's favorite restaurant for 8th year in a row."

The chain inspired me to take Sundays off.

ITEM 6: Zero Hedge reported, "A WalletHub survey of the largest U.S. cities discovered that the top three worst-run are primarily controlled by Democrats. 

"WalletHub examined the operating efficiency of 150 cities to determine which ones are managed best. They used a Quality of Services score of 38 metrics grouped into six service categories (financial stability, education, health, safety, economy, infrastructure, and pollution), which revealed Washington, D.C., San Francisco, and New York City are the worst three."

America turned its cities over to Democrats, which was a big mistake.

ITEM 7: The Epoch Times reported, "DOJ Has VA Suspend All Benefits of Jan. 6 Prisoner.

"'This is what you have when vindictive leftists get in charge of major parts of the government': Rep. Gohmert."

I doubt any of Biden's Band of Cowards behind this caper served. Biden and the rest stopped the benefits without a trial for charges alleged about a Fake Insurrection.

I want the next president to not only pardon all of them but also to settle their civil lawsuits out of court for $1 million each.

ITEM 8: Fox reported, "Singer Halsey doubled down on supporting abortion rights Wednesday while responding to fans who left upset from her Sunday night concert in Phoenix, Arizona. 

"That night, Halsey criticized the recent Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, prompting some fans to leave the show."

As they say, shut up and sing.

ITEM 9: Foreign Desk News reported, "On Thursday, CNN International’s Christiane Amanpour warned that the U.S. Supreme Court overturning the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling last week would result in the Taliban no longer respecting the United States."

Wait a minute. This self-proclaimed expert on geopolitics believes the Taliban ever respected us?

ITEM 10: The Daily Mail reported, "Climate change activists with a group calling itself Tire Extinguishers are celebrating their first 'action' in New York City- - deflating the tires of 40 SUVs on Manhattan's Upper East Side.

"The movement, which originated in the United Kingdom, seeks to dissuade people from owning SUVs in urban areas, and switch instead to more environmentally-friendly vehicles.

"The SUVs they vandalized had leaflets left on the windshield, which stated: 'Attention: Your gas guzzler kills.'"

One more reason not to live in Manhattan.

ITEM 11: Arizona Democrats show how much they love their country.

Never question their patriotism. They are very patriotic.

Just not to this country.

Meanwhile, Republicans are holding their own event.

Remember, the person with the smallest grouping wins.

ITEM 12: The Post Millennial reported, "When 93-year-old Joe Teague's Los Angeles home was broken into, he leapt into action to defend himself and his property.

"Attempts at peaceful resolution came up fruitless, and when the intruders attacked him, Teague grabbed his gun."

They pulled a fishing pole on him.

He pulled a gun. He shot one of the bandits.

The story said, "Teague held the group at gunpoint as he called the police and awaited their arrival."

ITEM 13: Politico reported, "When foreign ministers from 30 NATO nations met for dinner this week on the sidelines of the military alliance’s annual summit here, their discussions took an unexpected turn to the U.S. Supreme Court.

"At least four diplomats in the room aired concerns with the Court’s decision last week overturning Roe v. Wade and striking down the constitutional right to abortion, according to one of the only two Americans in attendance."

NATO is a military alliance. The USA must leave before the others turn it into EU Junior.

ITEM 14The New York Post reported, "Amy Schumer buys legendary home from Moonstruck, last listed for $11 million."

According to Procter and Gamble, her commercials sold so many tampons that she created a shortage. You would think she could afford something newer than a 114-year-old house.

ITEM 15: Just the News reported, "Former President Donald Trump on Thursday questioned why Jan. 6 committee witness Cassidy Hutchinson is not being prosecuted for lying under oath about her experiences in the White House while serving as an aide to then-chief of staff Mark Meadows.

"The former president and his White House officials have disputed much of Hutchinson's testimony to the House Jan. 6 Capitol riot committee. Trump continued defending himself on Thursday through posts on his platform, Truth Social."

Parading inside the Capitol is a major crime.

Perjury isn't.

DC values are Satanic.

ITEM 16: The Daily Mail reported, "Bill Gates is the largest single owner of US farmland, with some 270,000 acres."

Gates turned into a Bond villain before our very eyes.

Landfinger.

FINALLY, Fox reported, "Viral Burger King employee who never missed a day of work in 27 years receives over $270,000 in donations."

He helped support a wife and 4 kids. Mainly he stayed for the health benefits. It's a union shop.

The story said, "Thinking only of others, Ford said the entire experience still feels new but the reality finally set in when he was flown out to New York to share his story on NBC’s The Today Show, where he was reunited with his grandchildren which he says was a greater gift than money can buy."

Nice.

    1. Looks like most in the top ten are democrat.

      There is something very wrong with the survey. Gulfport, MS is 141 on the list. Chicago is 140. Except for likelihood of having a hurricane, there is NO WAY Chicago would rank higher than Gulfport as being better managed or has better quality of services. The Mayor of Gulfport is excellent. There is something not quite right here. But I do agree with the top three. But Gulfport number 10? Ain’t no way.

  4. Randy says: Item 10: “Climate change activists … deflating the tires of 40 SUVs on Manhattan's Upper East Side.” SUV owners could fight back by putting a bit of contact poison on their tire stems and caps. You probably can’t get enough on a cap to kill someone (unless your name is Clinton, you won’t have access to thallium), but if it makes them sick enough to stop, it’s a win. There are many contact poisons to choose from. Just google it.

    4. Probably one of the most accessible contact poisons is fentanyl. It can be absorbed through the skin (it’s available medically as a patch), and it takes only a small amount to cause severe respiratory distress. The people in Manhattan can undoubtedly buy it on any street corner.

    5. It would be my luck that I would poison the local tire repair guy. Security cameras would catch useful evidence, and eternal vigilance for our fellow travelers. If you see someone, intervene.

    6. Randy says: “911. What is your emergency?” “Someone is letting the air out of my tires.” “Okay, sir, we’ll send someone by within 48 hours.”

      The problem is that the greenies’ action is just “mischief,” a misdemeanor. I’m sure they all know that. You can’t shoot them, because it doesn’t fall into a category that supports a deadly response. So you either ignore the problem or use passive resistance / retaliation.

      The fentanyl solution offered above is a good one. You’d probably want to mix it with some honey as a binder to keep it on the cap, but the first rain would wash it off. That’s a good thing. Just run it through a car wash before taking it to the tire shop.

  13. #4. This is a mess. The suit against the district should be dismissed because the parents are sueing themselves. Instead it should be against the teachers, administrators, school board and the state education association. Each of the defendants should be placed immediately on unpaid leave status and forced to fund their own defense. Make the individuals accountable for their crimes.

  23. Re your lead comment, Big D…we had friends at our old church down in Damascus. He (also named Don!) was the store manager for a Marshall’s in PG County. His stories were grotesque. I had to tell him I couldn’t stand it any longer. In one, he described how one of his employees came to him and said he just could not clean this bathroom in the store. A ladies bathroom. So he went in and found gargantuan logs all over the floor in one of the stalls. Don found out that in certain African cultures, women are taught to STAND ON THE TOILET SEAT to take a shite. Well, obviously, if your aim isn’t good…now you know why Mr. T calls them “shithole countries.” And THAT’S the rest of the story…
