Highlights of the News

ITEM 1: The FBI raided Mar-a-Lago as the fascist state continues its siege of America. We still have dozens of protesters in DC jails where DC judges oversee show trials and hand out ridiculous sentences for what amounts to parading in the Capitol. 

Hillary Clinton was never tried for using her charity to launder bribes from foreign governors when she was secretary of state. The FBI helped her destroy evidence.

The FBI sat on Hunter Biden's laptop ignoring evidence of bribery, illicit drugs and underage sex.

This is a lawless and unAmerican regime. The devil raised Biden in his own image, didn't he?

There will be no civil war. We neither have that option this time, nor do we want one. The wounds lasted 75 years, healing only when the Japs attacked us at Pearl Harbor.

Pray for our country.

Pray for ourselves.

And then fight the bastards at the polls.

ITEM 2: John Hinderaker responds on behalf of all Never Trumpers.

I think this is unfortunate not only because it betrays our status as a banana republic, as Trump said, but also because it increases the likelihood that Republicans will rally behind Trump and he will be the Republican nominee in 2024. Given the disaster of the Biden administration, many think the Republican nominee will be a shoo-in in 2024, no matter who he or she might be. I disagree. I think that Trump might drag behind him so much baggage that he could be the only Republican likely to lose in 2024–not to Joe Biden, obviously, but to whomever the Dems nominate.

It isn't living in a banana republic that bothers him.

It is the thought that this might help Trump make America great again that bothers him.

He reminds me of the old fakes who decried Reagan in the 1980s. They backed Jerry "Jeb!" Ford.

ITEM 3William A. Jacobson responds on behalf of normal people.

My overall sense of what happened at Mar-a-Lago is that this is a provocation.

If New York Times reporting is right — and they never err on the side of being soft on Trump — then this raid was over documents the National Archives thinks Trump should not have, or perhaps classified documents in his possession. That is not something the FBI raids major political candidates over — See, In Re Hillary Rodham Clinton.

This is a provocation. They are trying to get a reaction that allows a further crackdown.

Calm in the face of evil takes strength. Pray.

Maybe this from the Babylon Bee helps, "Hunter Biden Breathes Sigh Of Relief As FBI Raid Team Passes By His House On Way to Mar-A-Lago."

ITEM 4: Eric Adams, mayor of New York, which is a sanctuary city continues to rail against Texas for sending him two busloads of illegal aliens.

Democrats cry all the way to the bank. Human trafficking of illegal aliens is a $13 billion-a-year business. Don't tell me that Democrats do not get a cut of the action. If they didn't that border would be locked down so tight that the wind would not blow through. 

ITEM 5: Last year, Neil Cavuto insisted time and again that everyone must get vaccinated. He said 99.9% of covid came from unvaccinated people, a statement verified by no one.

In October, he returned to TV after his first bout of covid and told viewers via the Howard Kurtz show, "Life is too short to be an ass. Life is way too short to be ignorant of the promise of something that is helping people worldwide. Stop the deaths. Stop the suffering. Please, get vaccinated. Please."

Well, nearly a year later we realize that the vaccines were not the magic cure. Healthy people also had legitimate reasons to be concerned about the vaccine.

My body, my choice.

Readers know I was vaccinated because my mean old wife has comorbidities. But I said then and I say now you do you.

Cavuto should square things with his viewers and apologize because life is too short to be an ass.

ITEM 6Gallup reported, " The U.S. remains highly fractured over immigration policy, with 27% of Americans saying immigration should be increased, 31% preferring that it be kept at the current level and 38% wanting it decreased.

"While today's attitudes are generally in line with the close division of views seen over the past several years, they mark a return to more Americans wanting immigration decreased rather than increased. That has been the norm throughout Gallup's history of polling on this since 1965."

Wait a second.

For 57 years Americans have said they do not want more immigrants.

Why are we taking in more people then?

ITEM 7By the way, Australian press tycoon Rupert Murdoch's New York Post misled in its headline, "More Americans want fewer immigrants in US for first time since 2014, poll reveals."

No, no, no. More want it decreased than want it increased and have since 1965. The only change is between those who say keep it unchanged and those who want it decreased. Too bad we gave him citizenship because we really don't need him around. We all ready have plenty of goofball leftist media tycoons as it is.

ITEM 8: Remember when Trump offered to buy Greenland? He was right.

CNN reported, "Some of the world's richest men are funding a massive treasure hunt, complete with helicopters and transmitters, on the west coast of Greenland.

"The climate crisis is melting Greenland down at an unprecedented rate, which -- in a twist of irony -- is creating an opportunity for investors and mining companies who are searching for a trove of critical minerals capable of powering the green energy transition.

"A band of billionaires, including Jeff Bezos, Michael Bloomberg and Bill Gates, among others, is betting that below the surface of the hills and valleys on Greenland's Disko Island and Nuussuaq Peninsula there are enough critical minerals to power hundreds of millions of electric vehicles."

Greenland would take easily a thousand years to melt.

But drilling through ice to get deposits is pretty inexpensive and does zero environmental damage.

ITEM 9The Washington Examiner reported, "AOC's district saw 57% increase in major crimes under tenure."

She is not the cause of this effect. She is its symbol.

ITEM 10: Gateway Pundit reported, "Biden Sniffs Woman’s Hair, Gets Touchy-Feely with Girls as He Visits Families Impacted by Kentucky Floods."

So the White House decided Kentuckians have not suffered enough and sent the pedo perv.

ITEM 11: The National Pulse reported, "Joe Kent, candidate for Washington’s 3rd Congressional district, has had his own ballot rejected by the state, The National Pulse can exclusively reveal.

"Kent, who is endorsed by President Trump, submitted his ballot to the county auditor’s office himself, on August 2nd. It was originally sent to him on July 17th.

"The National Pulse has obtained an image of the notification of Kent’s rejected ballot."

There is no such thing as voter fraud. There is no such thing as voter fraud. There is no such thing as voter fraud. 

Nevertheless, Kent knocked off Republican impeachment jackass Jaime Herrera Beutler.

Kane at Citizen Free Press said it was by 257 votes. A recount may flip it. 

ITEM 12: Breitbart reported, "An American company called UniEnergy developed revolutionary battery technology that could theoretically allow a house to be powered by solar energy.

"The company that made this breakthrough ten years ago is dead and gone because the U.S. Department of Energy inexplicably gave its tech to China while preventing American companies from manufacturing it."

Forget Taiwan. Red China had a bigger target to colonize. The USA.

ITEM 13: Resist the Mainstream reported, "Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley on Sunday claimed the 2022 midterms will make or break Republicans, arguing that if the GOP doesn’t win back Congress, there won’t be 2024."

She said, "If we don’t win in 2022, there won’t be a 2024. So we need to stay humble, disciplined, and win that."

What she didn't say is that without Congress there will be no stopping Democrats from using the federal government to suppress all dissent.

ITEM 14: CNBC reported, "Americans really know how to accumulate credit card debt: The U.S. total surpassed $1 trillion at the start of 2022. But there are some states with a more manageable amount of debt."

All are red and redneck. In order they are Mississippi, Arkansas, West Virginia, Iowa, Louisiana, Tennessee and Kentucky.

Living within your means is a sign of maturity.

ITEM 15: The Texas Tribune reported, "The American Civil Liberties Union is calling on the federal government to stop cooperating with Gov. Greg Abbott’s executive order authorizing state troopers to transport migrants back to the border ports of entry – escalating a debate over the state’s authority to enforce immigration laws."

Hmm.

What about EPA rules? Can they be ignored? OSHA? Vaccine mandates?

FINALLY, the Federalist reported, "Liz Cheney’s Husband Is Partner At Law Firm Representing Hunter Biden."

At the end of the day, it is a swamp and Hunter and Liz are the spawn of swamp critters.

    2. Agree that Schlichter is correct. It seems like a very dangerous time for your country. I said yesterday on this blog that I was worried that Trump would be prevented from running for president again. Imagine my shock when I turned on Fox news last night and learned that his Florida home had been raided by the FBI. I don't know where this ends. I worry that prayer will not be enough. I don't know how you put down this kind of evil. I pray that God intervenes somehow.

    3. Randy says: I agree with you, LuAnn. I read an opinion piece this morning that suggests this is the Deep State’s latest attempt to stop Trump’s run for President in 2024. They tried impeachment. They tried lawsuits. They tried tax audits. If they cannot stop him with FBI / DOJ harassment, the article said, the only option they have left is assassination.

    6. I read that the feds had fully auto weapons with them for the raid. Trump wasn't at home at the time, and I've seen some speculation that he might have been assassinated if he had been there. They could come up with any excuse later, like "He lunged for my weapon" (like he lunged for that steering wheel on Jan 6).

      I realize that they're doing everything they can to provoke us for further crackdowns, but just how much are you supposed to take? You can turn the other cheek only so much, and voting doesn't seem to work. What's left? Sorry to be so black pilled, but it is disheartening.

    1. The vaccines at this point actually make you more susceptible to both infection and reinfection. The data out of the UK at the end of last year showed conclusively that it was more dangerous to get the jab than not. If you have significant co-morbidities, consider it. If not, you shouldn't, and get ready to avail yourself of a variety of therapeutics that treat the disease directly. Even evil Pfizer makes one that works. Much better than their vaccine does.

    2. When I started reading the item about Cavuto, I was hoping Don was going to tell me that he was no longer on Fox. The man is unwatchable. But he is indicative of what Fox is becoming. I am so disappointed that Tucker is on vacation this week, of all weeks.

      Delete
    3. Totally agree LuAnn, Tucker sure picked a bad week to go on vacation.
      Or perhaps, knowing of his planned vacation, the FBI picked a good week to raid Trump's home in FL. Not suggesting he is that powerful, but that's one less vocal critic of the DS on duty. And by the time he returns the story will be old news.

Over the years, companies have come and gone. There used to be several in England, but I can’t find any there now. Canadian drug companies want you to email or fax them a prescription, along with your doctor’s name and phone number. Pharmacies in India “ask for” the same info, but they’ll ship “regular” stuff like ivermectin, diabetes meds, asthma inhalers, and eye drops without it. The company I’m using now is AllDayChemist.com. I would never buy meds from China. Hope this helps.

  11. Have to disagree. Everyday I have more and more concern that this is not going to end well (or peacefully) for the United States. The Democrat/Socialist/Communists have been emboldened by the 2020 steal and are fully out in the open now. Elections? Meh. Even if the Republicans were to take the House and Senate in November, how is that going to change anything? The Republicans now, even the so-called "Conservative" ones are just sitting back and not even making an attempt to raise their voices in opposition. Did you hear any of them (with 1 or 2 exceptions) scream bloody murder about the "Disinformation" Board? Have any have them (again with 1 or 2 ineffective voices) said BOO about the J6 protesters being held in a DC Gulag? Are any of them coming out about what the hell the IRS is doing with hundreds of thousands rounds of ammo and hiring 80,000 new IRS agents? What makes anyone think that with a majority things would change? The DC grift is like a siren song and they put on a good show in televised hearings for the rubes back home but in the end, the money changing hands behind he scenes trumps all (no pun intended). Makes me glad that I'm a lot closer to the end then the beginning of my time here. I have no desire to see what this country is going to be like in 25 years. I suspect strongly, it ain't going to be pretty.

  20. On #1--while noise about another civil war is rising, it is not viable. In 1861, the CSA had a mostly contiguous area in one part of the country. In contrast, here is a good map of the 2020 election by county: https://brilliantmaps.com/2020-county-election-map/ Rather than a group of states, the left mostly has a bunch of cities scattered around the country. All those heavily populated cities are an asset in elections; in a shooting war they will be a liability. All those people will be wanting their food, their electricity, their fuel for heat and transportation--and most of it comes from outside the city limits. Yes, there was an airlift for Berlin in 1947--but that was only one city, not fifty or more! The real reason the British lost in the American Revolution was that they could not control the countryside. They could take and hold any city, but not the countryside. And that is still an issue in modern war--it was a problem in Vietnam, and in Afghanistan. Things may still get ugly at times in some places, but the long-term result is more likely to favor the countryside.

  22. Item 13: "She said, "If we don’t win in 2022, there won’t be a 2024. So we need to stay humble, disciplined, and win that." Screw that. Stay humble? That's part of the problem with the Republican Party. They should be screaming from the rooftops about the fraud and corruption in Congress, the White House and the courts like raped apes. Why aren't they? Easy answer...they're in on it. They always have an excuse; we're building more consensus, it's "complicated", you rubes just don't understand the way things work in DC. Excuse me, I think we know exactly how things work in DC. That's why most Congressmen and Senators walk away from DC as Millionaires on a $174,000 a year. Insider trading, lobbyist money, campaign contributions...it's a grift of massive proportions and they're not even trying to hide it anymore.

  23. ITEM 6: Gallup reported, " The U.S. remains highly fractured over immigration policy, with 27% of Americans saying immigration should be increased, 31% preferring that it be kept at the current level and 38% wanting it decreased.
    For 57 years Americans have said they do not want more immigrants.
    Well, yes, more than a third want immigration decreased. One needs to compare that not with OK levels and want more percentages individually, but realize that combined, nearly two thirds are happy with the levels or want more.
    The effect is Americans DO WANT more immigrants. As long as those (illegal) immigrants remain out of sight, those numbers will not change. Gov Abbots brilliant "political trick" of sending these folks to sanctuary cities, like DC and New York, will be effective as shown in the complaints from Bowser and Adams for the bussing and their city services overload. Abbot should step up the transfer of these folks to all sanctuary cities until the populations of those cities rise up and say "enough!" For these numbers to change, these cities need to feel the pain of the border crisis.

  24. #1 - Pray, absolutely. But I fear it will take more than that. And fight at the ballot box - vote but put a stop to the cheating. I read that the raid happened on the day that Nixon resigned in 1974.

    1. LuAnn, I remember that day like it was yesterday. I was a Marine attached to the Presidential Helicopter Squadron back then. We all knew that Nixon was leaving 2 weeks before because we had spent days ferrying personal belongings of Mr. & Mrs. Nixon from the White House to Andrews AFB in Maryland for loading onto AF transports. Interesting times back then but nothing like today.

    2. I was in summer camp. The head of the camp came in to the dining hall to announce that Nixon had resigned. We were between the ages of 12 and 14. Some of the camp counsellors applauded. I did not. I only knew that he had resigned due to Watergate, something my Canadian parents were following. Thanks for you story, USMCMGB. You were part of history.

  25. #2 -- I've been a Powerline reader since its inception. I can't tell you how bloody angry I was last night to read John Hinderaker's post. Indeed, he is a Never Trumper. I thought when Paul Mirengoff left (known to readers and commenters as Mirengoof) things would get better, but apparently not. Done with that blog.

    1. The only thing I read Powerline for now is Steve Hayward's "This Week In Pictures".

    2. Steve Hayward's This Week in Pictures is good.

  26. #6 re: Immigration. Voters prefer controlled (or no) immigration with integration. But our elected betters keep giving us more without ever taking into account the consequences. As I have repeatedly said, we vote for people, get them elected and they don't do what they promised to do. In fact, most couldn't care less about their constituents and work for themselves on the public dime.

  27. ITEM 12 is incorrect. The American banks refused to fund him, and the American corporations refused to buy.
