Highlights of the News

ITEM 1: According to Hanna-Barbera's bio, George Jetson was born on Sunday. Congratulations to Mister and Missus Jetson on the birth of their son.

Ah, The Jetsons cartoon show. People bemoan the fact that today there are no flying cars that fold into briefcases.

But as much as I hate this century, cars soon will drive themselves. Maybe the electric vehicle boondoggle will develop a nuclear-powered car. I have my doubts about it folding into a briefcase. But it could fly itself.

There are people who are making it possible to fly to Mars. Videophones are far better than the cartoon depicted. That treadmill he keeps slipping on is a relic compared to the exercise machines we have today with magic mirrors featuring a personal trainer.

The cartoon reminds me of a line from Frank-N-Furter in The Rocky Horror Picture Show, "Don't dream it, be it."

The Jetsons dreamt it. Rocket scientists are working to be it.

ITEM 2: The Hudson reporter reported, Democrat "Jersey City Councilwoman Amy DeGise will not resign from office despite calls to do so after CCTV footage released by the city shows she struck a cyclist at an intersection without stopping afterwards."

Will there be justice?

The story said, "DeGise was elected last year as an at-large councilwoman on Mayor Steven Fulop’s slate in the City Council elections, unseating then-Councilman Rolando Lavarro after he had run as an independent and was no longer an ally to Fulop.

"She was also the chairwoman of the powerful Hudson County Democratic Organization for four years until a few months ago, and is the daughter of Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise."

We will see if the bicyclist is charged with scratching the paint on her vehicle.

ITEM 3: The Epoch Times reported, "Twitter Stops Censoring Epoch Times Content After Outcry."

Elon Musk's bid for Twitter unmasked it as a bastion of liberal fascism that seeks to shut down any and all dissent from the narrative. Activity on Twitter is down. Reporters are taking their accounts private.

This recession will bring many companies down to Earth. Twitter is on that list.

ITEM 4: This is CNN.

The 5 cops protested her Defund the Police mentality. Imagine that.

ITEM 5: The Daily Caller reported, "Early in July, the Food and Drug Administration added a warning to multiple gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists, drugs often used as puberty blockers in gender-confused youth.

"The FDA identified six cases where there was a plausible link between GnRH agonists and a condition called pseudotumor cerebri, which is caused by elevated fluid pressure in the brain. According to the FDA, all six cases were identified in biologically female children between the ages of 5 and 12; five of the six were being treated for early puberty, and the sixth was undergoing transgender care."

This is Mengele Medicine.

Ban it.

Send its practitioners to prison.

ITEM 6: Dr. Donald diagnoses our president.

His presidency is elder abuse.

ITEM 7: Zero Hedge reported, "It'll probably come as zero surprise at this point, but New York City's DA has decided to take it easy on a 16 year old that was caught on film last week attacking and assaulting a police officer.

"The juvenile was stopped by the officer after he hopped a subway turnstile. The altercation then turned physical, with the youth engaging in a prolonged physical altercation with the officer before finally being controlled. 

"And of course, New York City prosecutor Alvin Bragg is defending his office's decision to release the youth -- who has three felony arrests in less than four months -- and try his case in family court instead of Manhattan Criminal Court, according to Fox News.

"In family court, the youth will face rehabilitation instead of jailtime -- and the DA's office will no longer have any jurisdiction over the crime."

Meanwhile in Illinois, two cops decided not to become a statistic.

The cops are delivering the whupping his dad should have.

For what it is worth, I never spanked my kids. They never pulled a gun on a cop.

ITEM 8Judicial Watch announced, "FDA Officials: Biden Administration Vaccine Booster Timelines 'Make No Sense.'

"We can confirm that the FDA’s decisions on Covid booster shots were not entirely about science.

"We received 112 pages from the Food and Drug Administration that show top officials being pressured by 'companies and, for that matter the Administration, who try to impose timeless [sic] that make no sense.'"

The pages are from an FOIA request of government records.

The only thing boosted was the profits of the companies.

ITEM 9: The same FDA that granted the vax makers immunity from civil suits is cracking down on suntan lotion.

Ah, the Food and Drug Administration. Once upon a time it protected consumers. Now it protects Big Pharma.

If you use the lotion, you might get cancer. If you don't, you might get skin cancer.

ITEM 10: Axios blathered, "President Biden has slowly but substantially re-engineered significant parts of the American economy — achievements obscured by COVID, inflation and broad disenchantment. 

"Why it matters: Love it or hate it, piece by piece, Biden has pumped billions into infrastructure projects, helped revive the domestic semiconductor industry, and accelerated U.S. viral research and vaccine production capabilities. He might be on the cusp of the biggest domestic clean-energy plan in U.S. history."

Nonsense.

President Trump's policies made America energy independent for the first time in 50. Trump already revived the domestic semiconductor business. (Intel announced it will build a $10 billion plant in Ohio.) And Trump left Biden with three covid vaccines. Biden blew it by making them mandatory.

Axios also said, "Biden hasn't done a dazzling job explaining this to the public."

He has dementia. He is in lala land. 

But the new Democrat narrative is intriguing. They want Biden  to take credit for what Trump accomplished.

ITEM 11: Nikki is getting fried.

A woman that attractive should be able to attract a real man, not an NPC.

ITEM 12: Human Events reported, "On June 17, Rep. Lois Frankel (D-FL) was caught on video shouting at a local diner owner and threatening retaliation for his daring to hang a campaign poster for her potential opponent, Republican Primary candidate Deborah Adeimy.

"Richard Kline, owner of City Diner in West Palm Beach, Florida, says that he has happily served Frankel for many years as a customer, despite completely disagreeing with her politics. 

"Kline believes Frankel was made aware of the poster by a customer who questioned Kline’s son, who works at the diner, about the poster shortly before Frankel arrived that day.

"The campaign poster includes a line that reads: 'Retire Lois Frankel.'"

She's 74. Her state has changed. She has not.

ITEM 13: The Ministry of Propaganda strikes again.

The public tires of the manure media.

ITEM 14: KTLA reported, "California is a great place…to go broke; Golden State second-most broke U.S. state."

The story said, "If you’re trying to fill that piggy bank, it might be best to stay out of the Golden State. California is No. 2 in the United States for going broke living on savings alone, according to Consumer Affairs.

"The consumer platform reports that it would take 64.4 days for an average Californian to go broke living on only savings. This number was arrived at by taking the average amount of money Americans have in savings ($9,647) and calculating how quickly it’d deplete while paying a mortgage or rent, utilities, gas and food, based on survey data."

Once again, the blue states are doing it wrong while the red states have people who save money and live within their means.

ITEM 15: The Carolina Journal reported, "The U.S. Supreme Court will hear the case of Moore v. Harper in late 2022, with a decision expected about a year from now in the summer of 2023. The case is being pursued by Republicans in the North Carolina General Assembly that argue the North Carolina State Supreme Court’s Democrat majority violated the state constitution’s elections clause by twice rejecting congressional districts enacted by the legislature and eventually imposing court-drawn districts on the people of North Carolina."

Chief Justice John Roberts said in upholding Obamacare, elections matter.

Well?

FINALLY, John Nolte had a nice tirade about Hollywood.

He wrote, "The headline reads, 'More Than 400 TV Showrunners Demand Netflix, Disney and More Offer Safety Protocols in Anti-Abortion States,' but I think we all know what it really means….

"More than 400 fully grown adults, who also happen to be wealthy, helpless, neurotic, and angry crybabies, got together to demand the Hollywood studios make them feel safe in anti-abortion states."

They are not crybabies.

They are cry-bullies. They can get all the abortions they want in Hollywood.

No, what they want is to force everyone to conform to their lifestyle.

    1. To her credit, she's 44, has no children, and will likely reach menopause without creating spawn.
      Remember the old joke, what do liberal women use for birth control? Their personalities. In her case, it appears to have worked.
      As for being pretty, I find her to be repulsive. To each his own, she has managed to attract a drug pusher for a boyfiend who allegedly struck her after a car accident. It was witnessed by security guards but she denied it happened.

  11. 14 - are they counting the 0 - 21 year olds in the savings statistic? Are they not including investments other than bank deposits? I know a fair number of adults don’t have much saved, but $9,647 sounds very, very low. I don’t believe it.

    1. SL - I've heard a stat that something like over 50% of American Adults couldn't handle a $1,000 surprise expense... So I was thinking the number was high. Average may be skewed, I'd like to know what the mean is.

      Delete
    2. Randy says: That number likely includes only bank/CU savings accounts, not CDs, stocks/bond, IRAs, brokerage accounts, etc. Since saving accounts are currently paying an average of 0.1% interest, anybody with more than a few thousand wouldn’t stash it in a savings account.

      Delete
    3. I don't believe that Canadians or Americans have much savings to deal with an emergency. Most people who have some money have it invested and not in a savings account.

    4. There are 64% of people living payck to payck - https://money.usnews.com/credit-cards/articles/how-many-americans-are-living-paycheck-to-paycheck. That includes a lot of 'rich' people who dont save. So I actually was thinking the $9.6k was high. I imagine they dont take out the statistical outliers like billionaires either. Stats will say anything.

  12. #4 - Yup, this is CNN. Fox next. I read on Citizen Free Press on the weekend, that Lachlan Murdoch wants Fox to be more like CNN. Apparently, the family has disavowed Trump and Trump hasn't been on Fox since April. The New York Post, which I like, and WSJ, have run editorials saying Trump is unfit to be president. So those are so-called conservative friends. This is going to backfire bigly.

    1. Randy says: You’re right, LuAnn. Look at the folks who said Trump is unfit to be president in 2016. Bill Kristol’s Weekly Standard shut down, Rich Lowry’s National Review suffered a 40% decline in subscribers in the 2 years following their “Against Trump” issue, congressional Never Trumpers continue to bite the dust in R primaries… and on it goes. It’s a shame OAN and Newsmax have their own problems, because either one could be the next Fox if they’d just get their act together.

Back in 2000 when "hanging chads" were an issue in Florida the Speaker of the House said he didn't care what the courts ruled, the constitution gave him the authority to certify the election and that was what he was going to do. If the courts ruled the opposite way this issue might have been settled then. Courts should not take away the legislative authority under any guise.

  20. Item 9: Check Banana Boat's political campaign contributions. I'll bet they lean Republican, explaining why the FDA sees fit to claim their products cause cancer.
    Item 12: Don claims Florida has changed but Frankel hasn't. Actually, Florida has been a dark red state for 3 decades now. The state legislature has been majority Republican every year since 1986 and during that same time Republicans have been elected governor in all but two elections. It is just the national presidential elections that have been close due to cheating in Dade and Broward counties.
