#Dilbert was cancelled in 77 newspapers this week.— Scott Adams (@ScottAdamsSays) September 20, 2022
ITEM 1: 77 newspapers canceled Dilbert because it will help their ESG scores, which Scott Adams is mocking this month.
A reader said, "Scott Adams will still be drawing Dilbert when many of them fold."
But each paper will save $5 a week and signal their virtue to rich white liberals.
ITEM 2: Just the News reported, "Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis is reportedly continuing his migrant transport scheme, this time sending planeloads to President Joe Biden's summer home in Delaware.
"The governor, alongside Republican peers Greg Abbott of Texas and Doug Ducey of Arizona, have been sending migrants to left-wing strongholds in a bid to highlight the consequences of the Biden administration's lax enforcement of immigration law.
"DeSantis most recently earned notoriety for sending planeloads of migrants to the upper crust left-wing stronghold of Martha's Vineyard, which prompted outrage among Democratic leaders. Authorities promptly relocated the migrants to a nearby military base at Cape Cod."
Make them live by their rules, mate.
ITEM 3: News Busters reported, "On CBS Evening News on Monday, anchor Norah O’Donnell and senior White House correspondent Ed O’Keefe reported on the rolling dumpster fire that was President Joe Biden’s interview on CBS’s 60 Minutes on Sunday evening. As part of the report, O’Keefe noted how many of Biden’s statements needed to be corrected or clarified by his handlers afterward.
"Biden was such a trainwreck that O’Donnell opened with this stunning report: “there is fallout tonight after President Biden's interview with 60 Minutes, comments he made about the pandemic, led stocks of three COVID vaccine makers to plunge, shares falling as much as 9%."
Not to mention his willingness to send troops to fight and die for Taiwan.
But these are not gaffes. These are times Biden told the truth. Remember when he blurted out in 2008 that Obama would bankrupt coal companies?
ITEM 4: AP pretended to report, "A local elected official got court-appointed attorneys during his arraignment on Tuesday in the stabbing death of a Las Vegas investigative journalist who wrote articles critical of him and his managerial conduct."
It was a 986-word article that failed to mention the accused murderer is a Democrat.
Meanwhile, Dana Loesch tweeted, "Telles is a Democrat and the people who always declare that any criticism of the press from conservatives or Republicans is tantamount to violence are strangely silent on this story."
ITEM 5: Matt Henson reported, "Police: Driver admitted to intentionally killing teen at North Dakota street dance after political dispute
"Court papers say 41-year-old Shannon Brandt confessed to a 911 dispatcher and police that he killed 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson due to a political dispute."
The story said, "Court papers show Brandt called 911 around 2:30 a.m. Sunday and told the 911 dispatcher that he just hit Ellingson, claiming the teen was part of a Republican extremist group and was calling people to come get Brandt after a political argument."
The victim had called his mom.
The story said, "By the time she could get there, her son was dead."
ITEM 6: Can you guess what Kamala's word of the day is, boys and girls?
Kamala Harris: “We invested an additional $12 billion into community banks, because we know community banks are in the community, and understand the needs and desires of that community as well as the talent and capacity of community.” pic.twitter.com/PcYOosJ3pW— RNC Research (@RNCResearch) September 20, 2022
If she were a teacher, I would not trust her with study hall.
ITEM 7: AP reported, "The National Transportation Safety Board is recommending that all new vehicles in the U.S. be equipped with blood alcohol monitoring systems that can stop an intoxicated person from driving."
As long as you can opt out, no problem.
Until such time as a Paul Pelosi does a year in prison for DUI causing an accident, the government is not considered to be serious about drunken driving.
ITEM 8: CBS reported, "A group of Venezuelan migrants on Tuesday filed a lawsuit in federal court against Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis and other Florida officials who took credit for flying them to Martha's Vineyard, alleging that they were lured onto flights through gifts and false offers of jobs and services."
Martha's Vineyard won't lift a finger to help them but will get them the best ambulance-chasing lawyers they can find.
Frankly, they'd be treated better at Myrtle Beach.
ITEM 9: Just the News reported, "A quartet of Italian scientists are claiming that a review of current extreme weather data suggest the world is not experiencing a "climate crisis," contra the claims of most scientists and leaders around the planet.
"Activists and experts have long claimed that climate change will bring about an increasingly unstable atmosphere, one that is prone to ever-more-extreme weather events including more severe storms, hurricanes, tornadoes and droughts, among other phenomena.
"In a paper titled A critical assessment of extreme events trends in times of global warming published earlier this year at the European Physical Journal Plus, four Italian researchers claim that 'on the basis of observational data, the climate crisis that, according to many sources, we are experiencing today, is not evident yet.'"
Fermi helped save the world by leading one of the teams that developed the atomic bomb.
These scientists follow in his footsteps.
ITEM 10: AP reported, "The independent arbiter tasked with inspecting documents seized in an FBI search of former President Donald Trump’s Florida home said Tuesday he intends to push briskly through the review process and appeared skeptical of the Trump team’s reluctance to say whether it believed the records had been declassified.
"'We’re going to proceed with what I call responsible dispatch,' Raymond Dearie, a veteran Brooklyn judge, told lawyers for Trump and the Justice Department in their first meeting since his appointment last week as a so-called special master.
"The purpose of the meeting was to sort out next steps in a review process expected to slow by weeks, if not months, the criminal investigation into the retention of top-secret information at Mar-a-Lago after Trump left the White House. As special master, Dearie will be responsible for sifting through the thousands of documents recovered during the Aug. 8 FBI search and segregating any that might be protected by claims of executive privilege or attorney-client privilege.
"Though Trump’s lawyers had requested the appointment of a special master to ensure an independent review of the documents, they have resisted Dearie’s request for more information about whether the seized records had been previously declassified — as Trump has maintained. His lawyers have consistently stopped short of that claim even as they asserted in a separate filing Tuesday that the Justice Department had not proven that the documents were classified. In any event, they say, a president has absolute authority to declassify information."
We shall see if this guy is a good guy or just another John Durham protecting the FBI.
ITEM 11: The New York Post reported, "Look inside a NYC woman’s 80-square-foot, $650-per-month apartment."
Prison cells are bigger.
She should declare herself to be an illegal alien because Mayor Cop would, courtesy of taxpayers, put her up in a swanky hotel owned by one of his donors.
ITEM 12: Fox reported, "The Biden administration is expected to soon finalize a rule banning oil and gas leasing near a Native American historical site despite heavy opposition from local Indigenous leaders, who say the administration's rule would prevent them from collecting royalties on their land.
"The rule, which the Department of Interior (DOI) announced in November 2021, would implement a 20-year moratorium on federal oil and gas leasing within a 10-mile radius of the Chaco Culture National Historical Park located in northwest New Mexico. Interior Secretary Deb Haaland said the rule, which would amount to a withdrawal of 336,000 acres of public lands from mineral leasing, would protect the environment and rich cultural legacy of the region."
What the hell?
Democrats in the 1830s ignored a Supreme Court ruling and seized Choctaw land in Mississippi and Louisiana and gave it to slave owners. It was one of five Indian nations marched to Oklahoma in a series of Trails of Tears under President Jackson, founder of the Democrat Party.
They marched the Choctaw to Oklahoma where they have lived in poverty ever since. They finally got money from oil leases and Biden pulls a Trail of Tears number on them. Biden is using objections from a few Navajo to impoverish the Choctaw.
ITEM 13: The New York Post reported, "Dr. Anthony Fauci crassly mocked ass-backwards restaurant patrons who removed their coronavirus masks when seated — and laughed at the absurdity of his own idea for anti-COVID-19 goggles, according to a new book.
"The inside account is included by former White House spokesman Brian Morgenstern in Vignettes & Vino — out on October 25 — which calls Fauci awful and an egomaniac."
The Dr. Evil cackle is a dead giveaway.
ITEM 14: Breitbart reported, "Arizona Democrat Mark Kelly Funds Campaign of Iowa’s Mike Franken, Now Accused of Sexual Misconduct."
With a name like Franken, he has to sexually harass.
ITEM 15: Mia Cathell tweeted, "So about the Democrat Texas sheriff investigating Ron DeSantis' air-conditioned migrant flights to Martha's Vineyard...
"In June, 53 illegals were found dead inside a sweltering tractor-trailer in his TX county, which DHS deemed the deadliest smuggling case in U.S. history."
The thread is interesting.
Maybe Sheriff Virtue Signal should worry more about the 53 illegal aliens Biden's open border policy killed and less about the 50 sent to a resort city.
ITEM 16: Breaking 911 reported, "Shawn Parcells, uncredited forensics ‘expert’ who performed Michael Brown autopsy, sentenced to prison."
Parcells performed an autopsy on Michael D. Brown and concluded -- somehow -- that he had his hands up in a surrender when he was shot and killed. AP made it world news.
The reality is the officer and Brown struggled over the officer's gun.
FINALLY, CBN reported, "Actress Patricia Heaton Posts Heartbreaking Message About Her Brother's Death."
Her mother died when she was 12, leaving behind four daughters and a son. Patricia was going to follow in the steps of her father, Chuck, who covered the Browns for the Cleveland Plain Dealer. She became an actress instead, but her brother became a reporter at the PD.
The story said, "Michael Heaton, 66, was a reporter, features writer, and columnist for the Plain Dealer. He penned the Minister of Culture column for over three decades and was well-known in the journalism space before his 2018 retirement."
David Gray published a collection of Heaton's work.
Gray said, "Like many other people I was familiar with Michael’s Minister of Culture writings.
"I moved back to Cleveland in 1990. I knew his writing. I was really surprised when we put together his collection of journalism how much hard news and feature writing he had done and how good it was, including his 9/11 coverage. I was bowled over. It had me scratching my head a lot as to why The Plain Dealer didn’t have him write more because he was so good at it. There’s some really good writing in that collection. It’s not that he didn’t write good entertainment columns as Minister of Culture, but his other reporting had some seriousness that most people didn’t associate with him."
RIP, Mister Heaton. Never met you. Wish I had.
