Highlights of the News

ITEM 1: The Daily Telegraph reported, "100,000 North Korean soldiers could be sent to bolster Putin’s forces fighting Ukraine."

That's 100,000 soldiers, 10 million medals.

ITEM 2: The Tampa Bay Times -- which runs the silly Politifact site -- is upset that its George Soros-funded prosecutor is gone. DeSantis suspended him for failing to uphold the law.

Imagine that.

So it ran an editorial, "DeSantis: You’re not king of Florida. Removing a Hillsborough prosecutor amounts to overturning two elections."

The state constitution allows a governor to suspend public officials for malfeasance, misfeasance or neglect of duty.

The editorial ended, "The case now goes to the state Senate. Will the Republican-led chamber dare to defy DeSantis, dare to do the right thing, or will it hold a show trial to remove Warren from office? This was a terrible day for the rule of law, for the image of Republicans and area law enforcement, for democracy in Florida — and for what it says about the fate of abortion rights in America’s third-largest state."

Ah, abortion.

It's all about abortion. Florida limits it to 15 weeks, which is the same as the Mississippi law that the Supreme Court upheld 6-3.

I understand Southern newspapers also had a problem with the Supreme Court's de-segregation ruling in 1954.

ITEM 3: Blaze Media reported, "Democrat congressional staffer poses as FBI agent at Trump rally, leads Secret Service on chase in DC, steals $80,000, gets arrested in Georgia after T-shirt tips off law enforcement."

Sterling Devion Carter, until recently Democrat Congressman Brad Schneider's operations director, not only posed as a federal agent but when confronted, he fled the scene. 

Meanwhile, he forged signatures to get himself an $80,000-a-year raise.

When caught, he was allowed to resign rather than be fired. 

This case began in November 2020. He pleaded guilty in February.

Carter admitted in court that he openly carried a firearm in the District of Columbia – where it is illegal to do so.

The Daily Beast reported, "Federal prosecutors dropped the law enforcement impersonation charge, and he narrowly avoided prison time (When Carter pleaded guilty at 24, he barely made the age cutoff to take part in a local District of Columbia prison diversion program for young first-time offenders, according to his lawyer)."

He was not placed in jail. In fact, he is still walking DC free as a bird. He will begin his mere 9 month sentence later this month when he gets around to it.

No FBI raid at dawn. No perp walk. No press conference by the police.

Must be nice to be a Democrat in DC.

ITEM 4: Speaking of the FBI, the Daily Wire reported, "Leftists Dominate FBI Top 10 Domestic Terror List, Despite Warnings About Far Right."

There are a few black nationalists and a bunch of commies on the list. There is even a dead woman. But no white supremacists, even after sending 15 FBI agents to look for a NASCAR noose.

ITEM 5: Vice reported, "A Trump-loving Californian visiting Anchorage for a MAGA rally last month showed local police a novelty white privilege card after she was pulled over for swerving in her lane.

"But instead of citing or ticketing the woman for failing to show her driver’s license, cellphone video taken by the motorist shows officers had a laugh, took a selfie with the woman, and let her go.

"'You like my white privilege card?' the woman, Mimi Israelah, asked Officer Nicholas Bowe, while holding the card that reads 'White Privilege Card Trumps Everything.'"

It all was fun and games until she posted it on Facebook. The officers were put on administrative leave for 11 days. They violated some rule. 

Maybe it was the fact that she was Filipino and not white, right?

ITEM 6: NYT reported, "A man charged with murder last month in the killing of a Chinese food delivery worker amid a dispute over duck sauce was found dead on Friday after shooting himself in his Queens apartment, according to two people with knowledge of the matter."

 (The link is to a third party.)

One less trial, but nobody wins. Never cave in to your anger.

ITEM 7: The Daily Mail reported, "People will be 'blown away' by Tesla's Optimus humanoid robot, claims Elon Musk, who says it could serve as a companion or do menial tasks after it debuts at AI day on September 30."

Blown away?

Dear Lord, don't arm the thing!

ITEM 8: Come back to the five and dime, Jen Psaki.

What does she even mean?

ITEM 9: I blogged on it yesterday, but I have another thought about Dick Cheney's ad for his daughter that trashes Trump.

Why is Cheney attacking a man who received 69% of the vote in Wyoming two years ago? Trump did better than Liz. Is Dick that out of touch with his former state?

Maybe he believes this will endear him to the liberals who wanted him tried for what they called war crimes.

ITEM 10: NBC reported, "The last time tensions soared between Beijing and Washington over Taiwan, the U.S. Navy sent warships through the Taiwan Strait and there was nothing Red China could do about it.

"Those days are gone.

"Red China’s military has undergone a transformation since the mid-1990s when a crisis erupted over Taiwan’s president visiting the U.S., prompting an angry reaction from Beijing."

The hawks are pushing for a trillion dollar military.

As long as we have Milley and other pansies running the show, no thanks. Let Raytheon find some other sucker to buy its missiles.

ITEM 11The Army Times reported, "The Army is working on a tactical bra."

Just ask Austin Powers how it is done.

Oh behave!

ITEM 12The New York Post tattle-taled, "NY Times real estate writer sued, accused of owing $35K in rent dispute."

If that's the NYT standard, I want to cover banks for it.

ITEM 13PhysOrg reported, "South Korea joined the stampede to the moon Thursday with the launch of a lunar orbiter that will scout out future landing spots.

"The satellite launched by SpaceX is taking a long, roundabout path to conserve fuel and will arrive in December.

"If successful, it will join spacecraft from the U.S. and India already operating around the moon, and a Chinese rover exploring the moon's far side."

We had a 50-year lead. Liberals talked us into solving problems here on Earth instead. The problems are still here. Our lead is evaporating.

Put a man on the moon? We now have a Supreme Court justice who doesn't know what sex she is.

ITEM 14: Reuters reported, "Scientists say that climate change is increasing the likelihood of lightning strikes across the United States, after lightning struck at a square near the White House, leaving three people dead and one other in critical condition."

Actually, lightning deaths have fallen. The data is hard to find but in the 1950s and 1960s, annual lightning deaths ranged from 59 in 1950 to 153 in 1959.

Now, the National Weather Service reports they average 27 a year!

But as with the Great Barrier Reef, global warming propagandists lie. 

Far from dying, the reef is more vibrant than it has been in 36 years.

ITEM 15: The Asheville Citizen Times in North Carolina reported, " In response to the Texas school shooting that left 19 children dead May 24, the local school system and Sheriff's Office are rolling out some beefed up security measures in 2022-23, including putting AR-15 rifles in every school.

"Madison County Schools and Madison County Sheriff's Office are collaborating to enhance security in the schools for the upcoming school year after the Uvalde, Texas, tragedy revealed systemic failures and poor decision-making, with responding police disregarding active-shooter trainings, according to a report from the Texas state house."

Better to have a rifle and not need it than to need a rifle and not have it.

ITEM 16:  Variety reported, "A judge has ordered Kevin Spacey to pay House of Cards production company MRC nearly $31 million for alleged sexual misconduct behind the scenes of the Netflix White House drama.

"Spacey, who played Frank Underwood, was kicked off the series during its sixth season after facing allegations that he had sexually assaulted and preyed upon young men, including a House of Cards production assistant who said Spacey groped him, prompting MRC’s investigation."

Sexual assault is a polite term for rape. He deserves a quick trip to a long stretch in prison.

ITEM 17: And now, a message from the Florida Republican Party.

Fact-check: TRUE.

FINALLY, Via Just the News, Ted Cruz told CPAC Texas, "We've got out-of-control inflation, and the cost of everything is going through the roof. Cost of food – through the roof. Cost of electricity – through the roof. The cost of healthcare – through the roof. The cost of gasoline – through the roof.

"It's so bad ANTIFA can't afford bricks." 


  1. Randy says: Item 11: “The Army is working on a tactical bra.” In the 1950s they were called “bullet bras.”

    1. Randy says: And only actual women wore them.

    2. LG - You'd need a JFK magic bullet to shoot your eye out from there!

    3. When you have tits like a tac, getting a guy to tickle em aint easy. Course there are men like me who appreciate small breasted women.

  2. 3 - this story truly shows the divide between conservatives and democrats.

  3. 7 - Blown away? Maybe it is the Kamala model.

  4. Item 15: It is better to have a rifle and not need it than to have dozens of rifles and not use them...

    1. How many of those cops have been charged with accessory to murder?

  5. #10 China still can't all that bluster and saber shaking and Nancy came and went.
    I still think they are a paper dragon.

    1. One other thing is if the Russians get 100,000 Norks they won't have them long as they will be over the hill as soon as the see the west. 2DC

    2. Randy says: I’ve heard that the Nork population is riddled with disease and parasites, due to immune systems destroyed by years of malnutrition and unsanitary living conditions. It’s difficult to get accurate information out of N. Korea, but the handful of defectors that have made it to S. Korea have provided insights. I don’t know why Russia would welcome 100K people in such dire need of medical attention, much less send them to the front lines, where they would spread their disease among the Russian troops.

    3. Through her mask, Pelosi spoke the usual unintelligible gibberish in Taiwan: “Benjamin Franklin, our presidency” & “freedom and democracy in one thing, security here.”

  6. 12 - 35k in rent owed? In NYC, that means he is just one month behind.

  7. FINALLY - luckily for ANTIFA, George Soros supplies the bricks.

    Can the price of roofs go through the roof?

  8. 8. Mobius logic:
    It's like bragging how you put out the fire that you set.

  9. 9. Dick might get some votes for Liz (short for Lizard), if the ad goes something like:
    'Vote for Lizard, or I'll shoot this lawyer.'

    1. He isn’t going to swing many votes her way. Not because he doesn’t have any residual respect. It’s because she is just an unlikable creature. Kinda like Kreatcher, Sirius Black’s house elf in the Harry Potter films.

    2. He would have better luck if he said that for every thirty thousand votes, he takes a liar err lawyer hunting.

  10. It means move along these are not the gas prices you're looking for...or something like that.

  11. Item 8: Biden's administration bragging because gas prices are down a few cents is like a fire fighter claiming he's a hero for running into a burning house to rescue puppies -- when he's the one who started the fire.

  12. #1 .. We should not scoff at items like tactical bras, for if TV and Marvel Cinematic Universe has taught me anything, its that woman are every bit as good at fighting as men ... Probably better, cause they never lose

    Thats why there is a separate women's category in MMA. Four our protection. A man could die going up against a woman

    1. Ha! So the deluded think. That’s why men get to swim with women and get trophies they weren’t good enough to win swimming against men. Think that’s how it works.

  13. "Despite Warnings About Far Right." I'm still looking for a sane definition of what that is exactly. I have a flag with a alligator on it that says "Don't tread on my Florida." Does that make me far right?

    1. Anything that doesn’t adhere to the far left orthodoxy makes you far right. Catch up. 😂

    2. Far right is far right now. Right is far right. Moderate is far right, left leaning moderate is far right....

  14. "Far from dying, the reef is more vibrant than it has been in 36 years."

    What about the ozone hole? Can we get an update on that? And, have they found a cure for mad cow disease yet? Is it possible they've allowed these two crises go to waste?

  15. #17. CALIF= Come And Live In Florida! FGN

  16. 2. Ironic that the tribune talks about the rule of law while protesting removal of a prosecutor who won't prosecute.

    3. Too bad DiSantis can't fire that prosecutor, too.

    5. That card won't work for anyone anymore.

    6. Next, on to the McDonald's murder.

    7. Or, play chess with it.

    9. Maybe President Trump can solve that when he is reelected.

    10. They can't restaff the military we have and they are firing some who won't take the jab.

    15. This time the AR-15's will be in the hands of the good guys.

  17. 2 - Tampa Bay Times says - Who?

    3 - I stole $80,000 and all I have to show for it is this stupid t-shirt.

    6 - Mmmm, duck sauce!

    7 - Someone go make sure Sarah Connor is okay.

    8 - A nurse, a teacher and a firefighter walk into a bar for breathing room... and that's all KJP remembers from the joke.

    9 - I'm good with charging Dick Cheney with war crimes.

    11 - Just wondering where the clip goes and how many times you can reload her.

    13 - Bill Gates is already working on a vaccine to depopulate the moon.

    14 -
    Bartender: He's been struck by lightning... how many times has it been now, Reg?
    Reg: S-s-s-s-six-six-six-six-sixt-sixt-sixt-sixty-sixty-sixty-sixty-six times. In-n-n-n-n-n-n-In-n-n-n-n-n-n-In-n-n-n-n-n-n the head!

    15 - Doesn't matter what kind of guns you have if the cops are a bunch of cowards.

    1. 9 - I'm good with charging Dick Cheney with war crimes."

      Bush43 condemns 'unjustified and brutal' invasion of Iraq, instead of Ukraine, in speech gaffe LOL

    2. And if YOU don't have a gun they will shoot you.

  18. #5 -I actually read a different article on that incident. The cops did verify she had a valid license, just not on her. They were doing DUI checks at the time. Not having a license gets you a citation. Not usually given if they can verify your license. She was not intoxicated by anything. The cops did what they usually do in that situation but because of the 'White privilege' card, they got punished. If they couldnt have verified the license, she would have been cited and the car towed. Everyone has gone stupid with no common sense.

  19. Donald John Trump is still our president.

    1: Participation trophies.

    3: At least he goes to jail. Somebody must be concerned.

    4: What I just said. All the stuff on the Internet, especially places like this, must be having an effect.

    9: It's his daughter. You'd stand up for your daughter.


    10: Red China's last war was against MacArthur and they lost. Their army is for show.

    15: Better to have a rifle and not need it than to need a rifle and not have it.

    Unofficial motto of the LRRPs.

    FINALLY: Droll.

    1. 10: Red China's last war was against MacArthur and they lost. Their army is for show.

      Ret. Col. Douglas Macgregor in an interview with Tucker Carlson on Monday said "posers" are in charge of America's foreign policy and lamented the lack of statesmen that advance the interests of America. Macgregor argued that the U.S. is not prepared and the military does not have the "logistical infrastructure" for war with China.
      "We are grossly overstretched," Macgregor said. "We don't have the logistical infrastructure

  20. “ITEM 7: 
    Dear Lord, don't arm the thing!”
    Too late, sir. There was a report out of Japan last week that a robot shot and killed several people.

  21. #6 Headline should be ACCUSED MURDERER OUT IN BAIL WITH A GUN!

  22. #2 "I understand Southern newspapers also had a problem with the Supreme Court's de-segregation ruling in 1954."
    It might be worthy to note that these southern newspapers predominantly leaned left (Democrat).

  23. Off Topic : SCOTUS will rule on election law this fall.
    Moore v Harper

    >The US Constitution’s “Elections Clause,” Article I, Sec. 4 states:
    “The Times, Places, and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time by Law make or alter such Regulations, except as to the Places of choosing Senators.”
    >North Carolina state court redrew the legislature's congressional map.
    >2020 Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruling required state election officials to count mail-in ballots received within three days of Election Day.
    >Under the Constitution, only the legislature has the power to regulate federal elections, without interference from state courts.


  24. #9. Wyoming isn't his home state. Whether Nebraska wants to claim him is up to them. His dad was a government worker who got an assignment there when the dickhead coward was in highschool. For all intents and purposes he is a carpet bagger who moved there in 2000 so he could be Bush's running mate.

  25. #14: Interesting... who was in the 'square near the White House" that the powers of Heaven wanted removed?

  26. But as with the Great Barrier Reef, global warming propagandists lie.
    Liberals can't keep people from defecating on the streets, but want more money to save the climate. Clown world.
