Highlights of the News

ITEM 1: The Washington Free Beacon reported, "The Biden administration last month warned of a Chinese Communist Party front group that seeks to "co-opt" state leaders as part of Beijing’s sprawling foreign influence operation. Emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop show the first son and his business partners helped the organization gain a foothold in the United States while his father was vice president.

"In 2015, Biden’s partners lobbied the State Department to publicly approve a partnership between the Chinese People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries and State Legislative Leaders Foundation, a nonprofit group that hosts forums for state legislators and corporate leaders. Hunter’s team portrayed the initiative as a boon for U.S.-Chinese relations.

"But emails show they hoped the U.S. government’s recognition of the partnership would help the foundation establish an office in Beijing. It is not clear why the partnership—or the Obama administration’s blessing of it—would have helped Hunter Biden’s business prospects. What is clear is that he and his colleagues believed it would: Biden associate James Bulger wrote in a July 17, 2015, email that the Beijing office would be 'a great business driver' for a joint venture they sought with Harvest Fund Management, a Chinese investment firm led by Henry Zhao, a businessman and reported member of the Chinese Communist Party."

Red China means a lot of green to Biden and plenty of other politicians in DC.

ITEM 2: American Conservative reported, "Dark-Money Groups Push Vote by Mail. The Audacious Project is another left-wing attempt to make vote by mail permanent."

What is audacious is Republicans won't ballot harvest.

Go to Democrat areas, help Democrats with their mail-in ballots -- and then mail them in a month after the election.

Just joking.

ITEM 3: I stand by the right to protest without The Man interfering.

Stick to your principles, oh Looney Tune Lefties.

And stick to the statue as well.

ITEM 4: KATV in Little Rock reported, "In a plea deal filed Wednesday, a former FBI agent pleaded guilty to paying a business to wipe his computer to make the hard drive unavailable for forensic examination.

"According to court documents, former agent Robert Cessario was charged with 'corrupt destruction of record in an official proceeding' in connection to the corruption trial of former state Sen. Jon Woods of Springdale."

The FBI agent faces up to 20 years in prison. 

Woods is serving 18 years for his 2018 conviction.

RICO the FBI.

ITEM 5: In breaking news, The Hill reported Trump's favorite McDonald’s meal is Big Mac, Filet-o-Fish, fries and a vanilla shake,

It cited Jared Kushner's new book, Breaking History.

Sounds like a Best Snoozer.

My favorite McDonald's meal is to go over to Checker's and order a fully loaded fries.

ITEM 6: Meatloaf had the perfect song for this couple's love.

I'm praying for the end of time

It's all that I can do

Praying for the end of time,

So I can end my time with you!

ITEM 7: The Washington Free Beacon reported, "Oregon Democratic senator Ron Wyden warned early in the pandemic that wealthy business owners could abuse the Paycheck Protection Program. Financial disclosures suggest his wife did just that.

"Nancy Bass Wyden, the multimillionaire owner of New York's Strand bookstore, received $2.7 million in Paycheck Protection Program loans between 2020 and 2021 and nonetheless went on to lay off 180 employees. Small businesses were eligible for the federally forgiven loans on the condition that they used a majority of the funds to keep employees on the payroll. In October 2020, Bass Wyden told CBS News that the Strand would not rehire many of those employees and that the store would 'have to give back part of the loan due to the forgiveness rules.'

"But as of September of last year, the federal government had forgiven both loans, ProPublica reported. The Small Business Administration declined to comment and the Strand did not respond to the Washington Free Beacon's requests for comments on the loans."

Those 87,000 new IRS enforcers should go after Congress first. That is where the money is.

ITEM 8: NYT reported, "Kacie Margis, a model and artist, first learned about Dan Price in 2020 the way many people do: through social media posts that celebrated his progressive politics.

"Five years earlier, Price had propelled himself to an unlikely position for the head of a 110-person payment processing company when he told his employees that he was raising their minimum pay to $70,000. His announcement was covered by The New York Times and NBC News. Esquire did a photo shoot. He made appearances on The Daily Show and at the Aspen Ideas Festival."

He was the Woke White Man of the Year.

He cut his pay to $70,000 a year to help the firm raise everyone else's pay to $70,000 a year.

The story also said, "Soon, they were talking regularly. Price visited her near San Diego and flew her to Seattle. But what started as a whirlwind courtship ended three months later with an accusation of rape.

"On Monday, police in Palm Springs, California, said they had referred Margis’ case to local prosecutors, recommending a charge of rape of a drugged victim. Prosecutors in Seattle earlier this year charged Price with assault in another incident."

Michael Avenatti. Andrew Cuomo. Dan Price. The media really knows how to pick heroes.

ITEM 9: Yahoo reported, "Alec Baldwin feared he would be killed by Trump supporters over Rust shooting."

That's good to know. Next time I shoot and kill someone, I will say Biden supporters want to kill me.

ITEM 10: The Hill reported, "Former President Trump on Friday hinted at taking legal action in response to the FBI search of his Mar-a-Lago property last week.

"Trump said in a post on his social media platform Truth Social that a major motion related to the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution will soon be filed related to the search. He claimed his rights have been violated at a level rarely seen before.

"The Fourth Amendment protects people against unreasonable searches and seizures."

Such a case would be heard by a Florida jury, not a Democrat-dominated DC one.

ITEM 11: Breitbart reported, "Five candidates backed by former President Donald J. Trump won their primary races in Wyoming and Alaska Tuesday night, growing his overall endorsement record to 209-17 in 2022."

There is no doubt who leads the Republican Party.

ITEM 12: The Daily Mail reported, "A former high-level National Security Counsel official running for Rep. Elise Stefanik's New York seat claims to put 'country before party,' but former colleagues say he put 'party before country' with wild and raunchy workplace behavior, DailyMail.com can reveal. 

"Matt Castelli, a Democrat who used to serve as a director of the counterterrorism division for the National Security Council, is selling himself as a moderating voice within politics - an 'alternative' to 'extremism' plaguing both sides. 

"But Castelli knew no moderation when he worked for the White House - multiple former National Security Council colleagues say that Castelli was known to drink on the job, and often to collect overtime pay while doing so, and had sex with multiple of his coworkers."

After he loses in November, he should move to Finland. He would fit right in.

ITEM 13: The New York Times reported, "The Constitution Is Broken and Should Not Be Reclaimed."

That was its headline for a column by law professors Ryan D. Doerfler of Harvard and Samuel Moyn of Yale.

If you need a lawyer, don't get one from those Stalinist schools.

ITEM 14: The Wall Street Journal reported, "It Now Costs $300,000 to Raise a Child."

Worth every penny.

ITEM 15: Fox 31 reported, "Colorado is the nation’s cocaine use capital."

This comes a decade after Colorado and Washington became the first states to legalize the recreational use of marijuana.

Don't tell me it isn't a gateway drug.

    1. Republicans are less than worthless, until they prove they're not. I don't want them to "vow" to hold hearings; I want indictments and trials. Like I said, they're less than worthless and have been for decades...decades. Trump is blowing the lid off the RINO two step. I hope it's enough.

    2. We've never had a former president expose and threaten the very long-standing DC cartel's game of printing hundreds of billions so they could steal hundreds of millions. They will do anything to keep shaking down American taxpayers. It's just too darned easy and no one ever goes to jail for this massive theft. It's why they exist. "My learned colleague"...give me a break. Thieving pedophile is more like it.

  12. Look I like Trump but his endorsements are largely self-serving because most, not all, but most, of those candidates would win their primaries anyway. If Trump wants to show he really counts, he better show up in Alaska, Arizona, Ohio, and Pennsylvania for example, because those general elections are hanging by a thread. Georgia, too.

  14. Item 13: I have a better idea for the communist Harvard & Yale law professors: how about we keep the U.S. Constitution, reclaim and reinstate common law and toss the purposely-confounded political law they teach in the trash bin?

    Although the two America-hating professors would never do it, they could even buy some Uncle Eric books by Richard Maybury to refreshen up on the simple concept.

    2. Randy says: The whole “gateway drug” schtick is absurd. Taking one substance before another does not mean taking the first substance caused you to take the second. It’s the cum hoc ergo propter hoc logical fallacy. Otherwise, milk is the “gateway drug” to all other drugs, because everyone drank milk before imbibing alcohol, cocaine, heroin, meth, etc.

    3. Randy, you're normally spot on, but that analogy is ridiculous. Last time I checked, milk isn't a habit forming drug.
