Highlights of the News

ITEM 1: Basketball player Brittney Griner received a 9-year sentence for smuggling drugs into Russia. While she is listed as a WNBA star, she makes 4 times as much money in Russia as she does in the USA. That is why the WNBA is a summer league. The real money for 6-foot-8 women is in Europe.

Griner refuses to stand for the American national anthem but now wants to come back.

Biden denounced the sentence and promised to trade a Russian terrorist for her.

Meanwhile in D.C., Guy Wesley Reffitt received a 7-year sentence for protesting inside the U.S. Capitol.

Pardon me, but when did we become the Soviet Union?

ITEM 2: I already wrote about DeSantis suspending Andrew Warren as prosecutor because he refused to uphold abortion and transgender laws.

But I was fascinated by how real journalists handled the story.

AP said, "DeSantis suspends elected prosecutor over new abortion law."

The New York Times said, "DeSantis Suspends Tampa Prosecutor Who Vowed Not to Criminalize Abortion."

CNN reported, "DeSantis suspends Tampa prosecutor who took stance against criminalizing abortion providers."

What if he refused to prosecute gun cases?

Would that be a refusal to criminalize gun ownership?

ITEM 3: The Epoch Times reported, "A fifth child is presumed to have monkeypox in the United States since the country’s first two pediatric cases were reported in July.

"California health officials announced the latest presumptive pediatric monkeypox case in a Long Beach child on Tuesday, four days after Indiana health officials confirmed that two children in that state also tested positive.

"Last month, another California toddler tested positive for monkeypox as well as an infant resident of a foreign country who was passing through Washington D.C., bringing the total U.S. pediatric cases to five."

What if gay men are deliberately infecting children so they can claim anyone can get monkeypox, just as they did AIDS?

ITEM 4: The FBI figured out the easiest way to solve a crime is to get someone commit it.

Defund the FBI?

RICO it!

ITEM 5: Zero Hedge reported, "Houston city officials banned 3D-printed firearms at future gun buyback events after one man recognized an opportunity to exploit the system and print money.

"The anonymous man told local news Fox 26 that he made 62 3D-printed guns and handed them over in Houston's first gun buyback event last weekend. He said the city offered him $50 per gun, cutting him a check for $3,100.

"The man said the cost of production per gun was $3, netting a profit of $47 per weapon."

This is America. We have guns. And entrepreneurs.

ITEM 6: The New York Times reported, "Sinema Agrees to Climate and Tax Deal, Clearing the Way for Votes."

Boy, those Democrats are skilled negotiators who can get even Democrats to support them.

ITEM 7Reuters reported, "China deployed scores of planes and fired live missiles near Taiwan on Thursday in its biggest drills in the Taiwan Strait, a day after U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi made a solidarity trip to the self-ruled island."

I thought they were going to shoot her plane down.

Man, are they lousy shots.

They are so bad, they qualify as Star Wars stormtroopers.

ITEM 8: The Austin American-Statesman reported, "Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones must pay the parents of Sandy Hook victim Jesse Lewis damage awards totaling $4.1 million, an Austin jury determined Thursday — far below the $150 million requested."

The jury will determine punitive damages next.

The massacre was 10 years ago. The wheels of justice are too slow.

ITEM 9: Ace reported, "New York Times: It's Not Fair to Send the Illegal Aliens Demanded by East Coast Elites to the East Coast."

The actual NYT headline was, "G.O.P. Governors Cause Havoc by Busing Migrants to East Coast

"Thousands of migrants have been arriving on buses sent by the governors of Texas and Arizona. Many have ended up in homeless shelters and on the streets."

The NYT story closed with a quote from an SJW, who said, "The infrastructure in New York is not built for this. We are not on the border."

NIMBY. 

ITEM 10: The Daily Caller reported, "FBI Director Christopher Wray said during a Thursday Senate Judiciary Committee hearing that payments from China and other countries to Americans like Hunter Biden could be part of a 'malign foreign influence' campaign."

Now you know why Wray sat on Hunter's laptop for a year.

He got a cut of the action.

RICO the FBI and audit Wray.

ITEM 11: DeSantis faces the winner of the Nikki Fried-Charlie Crist Democrat primary.

I don't believe it will be Fried.

ITEM 12: Times Now News reported, "'No Bra Money': Shop tells customers to stop paying sweat-soaked cash stored in bras during heatwave."

It is Mattress Mick's in Dublin, Ireland.

ITEM 13: The Washington Post reported, "Great Barrier Reef has most coral in decades. Global warming could reverse it."

Actually, the increase in carbon dioxide may be causing the build up.

But it is nice of the Jeff Bezos publication to admit the horrors stories about the Great Barrier Reef dying were all lies.

Now to get his rag to admit Russiagate was a hoax.

ITEM 14: Fox reported, "Former Vice President Dick Cheney calls former President Donald Trump a coward and argues that Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming is fearless, as he stars in the latest ad released by his daughter’s re-election campaign."

Politics as an episode of That Girl with Danny Thomas as the guest star.

But neither Trump nor the candidate who will bring Liz down in 11 days started it.

Flashback to January 28, when Politico reported, "Rep. Matt Gaetz fired off a barrage of insults against his colleague Liz Cheney during a rally in her home state of Wyoming on Thursday — a raw embodiment of the cleavage across the Republican Party following President Donald Trump’s exit from office.

"Gaetz’s rally flouted Republican leadership’s appeal to temper the intraparty conflict. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy urged members of his caucus Wednesday to lay off the attacks on each other."

Remember, Republicans then voted to keep her as a House leader after her vote to impeach a Republican president. She got kicked out months later when she wouldn't shut up about Trump.

ITEM 15: The Root reported, "The Kettle Moraine School District of Wisconsin decided to bar their employees from displaying pride flags in classrooms or displaying their preferred pronouns in email signatures, according to The Associated Press. Superintendent Stephen Plum claims the new decision is simply a reinforcement of established policies."

You can't pray in school, you can't gay in school. Teach, teacher, teach.

    10. There's a picture floating around the internet of a topless person playing basketball that looks exactly like Griner. Flat chested with no scars, so no surgery. If you search for topless photos, some articles show up but the pictures are all censored. If Griner is a she, she's the most flat chested woman ever.

    2. McCarthy is not McConnell Lite. If only. He's McConnell Sans Craftiness. He's all the downside of McConnell with none of the upside, which is the intelligent sneakiness to occasionally get passed at least parts of the conservative agenda (such as judges). McCarthy is beyond awful. Still, he's an upgrade from Paul Ryan.

  4. ITEM 1: Meanwhile in D.C., Guy Wesley Reffitt received a 7-year sentence for protesting inside the U.S. Capitol.
    I read that he did not engage in any violence and did not enter the building. The worst part of this is Guy Reffitt's own 18-y-o son Jackson helped the FBI to secretly record his father (and family) for 8 days. The recordings were used against his father. Jackson testified against his father in court, and one of his sisters was subpoenaed to testify. Chris Cuomo interviewed Jackson before he was fired from CNN. Cuomo called Jackson a hero for turning in his Dad.

    3. Two years ago Jackson turned 18 and declared himself a democratic socialist, and a Bernie fan. It was Jackson who contacted the FBI to tell them his father went to DC for the 1/6 protest. Jackson moved out after the FBI raided his family's home "with flash bangs and a battering ram." Like LuAnn, I would not have turned in any family member for that.

    9. "There is an Israeli scientist who claims that monkey pox is a result of the mRNA poison"
      In a way. Since the jab destroys the body's immune system, the person is more prone to picking up nasty stuff. Part of the old HIV stain is used to make the junk.

      Delete
    10. Randy says: That makes sense to me, LuAnn. I think the mRNA shot will be proven to lower the immune system, which is already low in people with HIV.

      Immunocompromised people are susceptible to all sorts of pathogens (viruses, bacteria, and cancers) that would not adversely affect someone with a healthy immune system. I’ve come up with the term VAIDS — “vaccine” acquired immune deficiency syndrome — to describe this phenomenon.

  7. Randy says: Item 5: “Houston city officials banned 3D-printed firearms at future gun buyback events” I guess that project paid for the guy’s 3D printer, but there’s an easier way to make a “gun.”

    A 12 gauge shotgun shell will fit in a 3/4” pipe, so with a piece of pipe and a pipe cap with a screw centered in the end, you have a single-shot shotgun. Videos of making these are all over YouTube. I wouldn’t want to fire one of these things, because the kickback would be horrendous. But it’s a gun, so it qualifies for the buyback. Just make sure the barrel is over 26”, or instead of a $50 bill, you’ll get arrested for having a “sawed-off shotgun.”

  20. Re: Item #3. The first two children to be reported infected in the U.S. were described as an infant and a toddler. I haven't seen any age ranges on the most recent three, but keep in mind that the legal definition of a "child" is anyone under the age of eighteen. It seems likely that some prostitutes, including teenage child prostitutes, are currently infected and spreading monkeypox.
