Highlights of the News

ITEM 1: The NFL had a game in Munich on Sunday. The crowd sang Country Roads

Danke, M√ľnchen.

Outkick explained, "Each year, from late September to the first weekend in October, upwards of six million people gather in Munich to consume nearly more than a million liters of beer at the world’s largest Oktoberfest. The crowd that gathers is international, so while there are plenty of sing-a-longs to German music, a few American hits also get their play. John Denver is one of them.

"They know every word in Munich and that was evident when the audio cut out and the fans went a capella."

ITEM 2: Coin Desk reported on March 14, "Ukraine Partners With FTX, Everstake to Launch New Crypto Donation Website.

"FTX is converting crypto contributions to Ukraine’s war effort into fiat for deposit at the National Bank of Ukraine."

Actually, FTX was laundering money to go in the pockets of the oligarchs who run the kleptocracy with kickbacks to politicians in those NATO countries.

Post Millennial reported, "Ukraine invested into FTX as the Biden administration funneled funds to the invaded nation, and FTX then made massive donations to Democrats in the US."

FTX CEO, Sam Bankman-Fried, donated hundreds of millions of dollars to Democrats before emptying FTX's vault. He's the Jeff Epstein of crypto.

But Zero Hedge said, "we do wonder just how much crypto money-laundering between the US and Ukraine will emerge as a result of the bankruptcy discovery, and how long until we can safely claim that 'Sam Bankman didn't fry himself'?"

ITEM 3: Democrats kept the Senate and likely will keep the House. I underestimated Biden who has never lost an election in 50 years of politics.

McCarthy and McConnell are relieved because this leaves them nothing to do but mark time. They learned from the Tea Party. They do not want the power to do anything but cut taxes. That's all they did under President Trump.

ITEM 4: Daily Beast reported, "Romania’s media market is engulfed in a pay-for-play political scandal which includes newsrooms using the brand names of CNN and Newsweek.

"CNN’s Romanian affiliate, Antena 3 CNN, has a TV broadcasting license which precludes it from taking money from political parties outside of designated election campaign periods. Yet that is reportedly exactly what the biggest names in Romanian news media have been doing through their websites, which are unregulated."

CNN has a long history of cozying up to dictators. Only when American soldiers were at the gates of Baghdad in 2003 did CNN admit that its Baghdad bureau was a PR shop for Saddam Hussein.

U.S. law forbids companies from paying foreign bribes.

But the rule of law no longer applies, does it?

ITEM 5: CNBC listed the most regretted college majors.

No. 1 was journalism.

87% regretted getting a J-degree.

Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be journalists.

Let 'em be goat-herders and such.

ITEM 6: Legal Insurrection reported, "In early October, biological girls on a Vermont high school volleyball team were banned from their own locker room for objecting to changing in front of a transgender teammate who is a biological male.

"A couple of weeks later, the father of one of the girls was suspended from his job as a middle school coach for defending his daughter on social media and ‘misgendering’ the trans student.

"Then Alliance Defending Freedom got involved and threatened a First Amendment lawsuit and now the school is backing down."

Fight the bullies!

ITEM 7: I said in 2020: learn to ballot harvest.

I say it again in 2022: learn to ballot harvest.

Also, learn how rank voting works. They changed the rules. We must learn them. Crying foul has them laughing all the way to Congress.

ITEM 8UPI reported, "Slovenia elected its first female president NataŇ°a Pirc Musar on Sunday following a run-off election."

Strange but true: They voted and counted the votes on the SAME DAY!!!

ITEM 9: Just the News reported, "Amid the mixed returns notched by Republicans in what was expected to be a red-wave blowout, the 2022 midterms nevertheless saw notable conservative gains at one key level of local government: school boards. 

"Long a relatively staid and unremarkable quarter of the political world, school boards have increasingly become a nexus of debate and strife, particularly as public educational practices have become more and more publicized throughout the country.

"A growing number of individual parents and parental groups have begun turning up to school board meetings intent on criticizing board members for controversial curriculums and demanding an end to extreme classroom content such as sexually explicit materials and racially inflammatory lessons. 

"Board members and educators have often pushed back, asserting their prerogative as educators to determine what children will learn in the classroom. At times, politicians at higher levels of government have stepped in to the fray. This week, Democratic California Rep. Eric Swalwell openly derided the idea of parental oversight of education, claiming that giving parents more control over school material is the equivalent of putting 'patients in charge of their own surgeries' and 'clients in charge of their own trials.'"

Patients do get to decide if they want surgery and clients do get to decide if they want to go to trial or settle.

ITEM 10: CNBC reported, "Disney plans to institute a targeted hiring freeze as well as some job cuts, according to an internal memo sent to executives."

Learn to code, sure, but really learn not to groom.

ITEM 11LMT reported, "Twitter verifies account for Jesus Christ."

That's because He no longer fears being put in Twitter jail under Musk management.

ITEM 12: The Epoch Times reported, "Consumer sentiment fell last month while expectations of inflation among the general populace rose, according to a University of Michigan survey that is closely followed by the Federal Reserve.

"The Index of Consumer Sentiment came in at 54.7 in November, down from 59.9 in October, data from the surveys of consumers conducted by the university showed. On a yearly basis, the index decreased by 18.8%. With the decline, the index has erased roughly half the gains recorded since the historic low registered in June."

A slowdown may ease inflation.

ITEM 13: The LA Times said, "Is California on its way to banning rodeos? Behind the growing movement to buck the event."

Maybe they should change the street's name from Rodeo Drive to Petting Zoo Lane.

But while the LA Times and its friends worry about the treatment of cows, thousands of pup tents occupied by drug-addicted humans line the sidewalks of LA. Virtue signaling over hamburger on the hoof does not help them.

ITEM 14: AP reported, "Naomi Biden, the granddaughter of President Joe Biden, and Peter Neal are getting married on the South Lawn on Saturday in what will be the 19th wedding in White House history."

Biden is so excited because he looks forward to the bridal shower.

No one has the heart to tell him what that really means.

ITEM 15: JD Rucker reported, "Bombshell: Body Cam Footage Showed Paul Pelosi Opening the Door so Why Did the Department of Justice Lie About It?"

Everyone knows the answer.

It is the same reason they won't release all the J6 video.

FINALLY, in case you missed it, "If I Were The Devil, updated," posted on Substack on Saturday.

    14. "I see the I'm Quitting Don Surber Squad is up early this morning."

      The Never-Trump sequence of disagreement degenerating into pique is uncanny. Hope Don arrests it before it alienates his entire readership!

      Not a single Never Trumper started out as a hater but was driven to that inevitability by incrementally allowing each unintentional progression to make the disagreement personal.

      The Trumper-Going-Wobbly makes his self-declared "brave" stand, he is called out on that self-righteousness, and he mistakes that criticism as a sign he is over the target, making the "tough call." (Even worse, his critics compound the confusion by processing their feelings as a substantive attack.)

      But it *is* personal. Because it is a character flaw wholly independent of the disagreement. If calling out Trump is the principled thing to do, Don wouldn't even feel tempted to insult loyal readers as a hypocritical "I'm Quitting Don Surber Squad."

      The next stage of the progression is increasing criticism about Trump over increasingly smaller flaws ("the vanity of small differences") to cover up this character issue, rather than addressing it squarely with the people who feel betrayed -- and more importantly, rather than addressing it squarely with oneself.

      Again, they may not have been betrayed. But to *feel* betrayed and then dismissed for feeling it is separate from the issue and accelerates the spiral. Didn't see this coming in Don (despite some hints in retrospect after the 2020 steal), but it is a serious temptation designed by the devil *precisely* to afflict the genuinely virtuous, the genuinely principled, like Don is. People like Mike Pence.

      Because they genuinely are so close to genuine righteousness, they are open to the idea that one little lapse into self-righteousness can't hurt, can it? But that is the only thread the devil needs to eventually unravel the whole sweater.

      I'm literally praying for Don to resist. He has obviously has the stuff for it.

    15. So now surber is getting a taste of his own medicine.

      The pesky critics are mother's milk to the loyal to the blog faithful.

      After all, so boring to just always be patting each other on the tushy.

Randy says: “Don wouldn't even feel tempted to insult loyal readers as a hypocritical "I'm Quitting Don Surber Squad.” The ‘anonymous’ ones calling Don Surber names are not ‘loyal readers.’ I’ve been here for over a year, and never before have I seen these rhetorical patterns (like impatiently insisting Don answer their specific questions or ending with “Thanks for playing”) or formatting patterns (like making each sentence a separate paragraph). Far from being ‘loyal readers,’ these people are just super-annoying flying monkeys from Conservative Treehouse or some other Trump bootlickers’ blog, dispatched here to stir up trouble. Maybe if we treat them like the work-from-home spammers, they’ll get tired of getting no reaction and just go away.

    1. I spent over 35 years in tech including 22 at a well known computer manufacturer in roles such as network engineer, senior consultant, and others. I’ve thought about this on and off and I can’t think of a way to design these vote tabulation machines such as they are both foolproof and more importantly fraud-proof.

      There’s simply no way to ensure a legitimate count without either a). reviewing the source code (though still not 100%), or b) auditing the ballots through external means such as a hand count. With so much on the line for our country, why is there such trust in something that is susceptible to fraud?
      Exhibit A: Dekalb County Ga primary – In a Democrat primary, one candidate, Michelle Spears, who came in 3rd place noticed that no one in her own precinct had voted for her despite both her and her huband’s votes. Upon a hand recount, her vote totals shifted from 3031 to 6651 giving her the win. The machine tabulation was 12,639 and the hand count was 15,449. How did this happen? If you look at the totals, it seems there were not only 2600 votes lost by the machine on election day, but a lot of votes were shift from Ms. Spears to other candidates. Again, how does this happen? Even if it were an accident, why are we not at least doing spot audits/statistical sampling to ensure a proper outcome?

      https://decaturish.com/2022/06/breaking-hand-count-in-district-2-dekalb-commission-race-changes-runoff-picture/

      Given this and the bullshit excuses they gave for the initial outcome, I for one totally distrust anything that is not spot audited.
      As to the failure of the feckless GOPe to win these races, well of course they took a dive. Between the failure to create and execute a strategy to things like McTurtle undermining senate candidates, it’s pretty obvious they weren’t in it to win it. You just can’t be that stupid. Why? There are a lot of theories such as getting rid of the orange man, elevating Desantis, and others, but the elections as far as I’m concerned are compromised and frankly, I don’t know how we ever get them back give the lack of interest/opposition to machine count fidelity coupled with massive ballot harvesting, and whatever else might be going on…

    2. Yep. Between the computer programmers and the massive manufacturing of fraudulent ballots the GOP can't overcome the fraud. And with all due respect to Don, it's not simply that dems legally or illegally depending on state "harvest" ballots better. They manufacture ballots. They also sabotage machines or ballots (sharpies) that then identify majority GOP votes, and during the "curing" process replace GOP vote with a false ballot

    3. Randy says: In my Florida county, paper ballots marked by the voter are inserted into the scanner by the voter. The poll worker never touches any completed ballot before the vote is counted.

      However, and this is important, how does the voter know what the scanner saw? Or even if scanned correctly, for which candidate the scanner upticked the counter? The scanner could be programmed to uptick candidate B for every tenth vote for candidate A. That’s why the source code needs to be examined by IT professionals from both parties, then the machine locked until after the results are certified.

      I suggest another cross check: Have the machine print a “receipt” indicating the date, time, precinct, and serial number, then the vote for each office, such as:
      Pct: 123 Serial No: 4567
      Governor: DeSantis
      Senator: Rubio
      Representative: Jones
      School Board: Smith

      Retain Judge White: Yes
      Retain Judge Brown: No

      Amendment 1: Yes
      Amendment 2: No
      Etc.
      The receipt would be printed by the scanner for the voter to check that the votes on his ballot were scanned and credited correctly. If the machine read the ballot incorrectly, the voter could challenge the scan right then, the precinct supervisor could eject and shred the misread ballot, decrement the counters, and the voter given a fresh ballot. For mail-in ballots, the receipt would be stapled to the ballot for auditors to spot-check.

      For in-person voting, only the voter would see the receipt, which he would retain. The scanner would also log the votes by precinct and serial number, which would be freely available online a few days after the election. If my receipt shows I am voter 4567 in precinct 123, I could enter those numbers online and verify that the votes recorded for me were correct. This would prevent shenanigans where the machine prints the receipt correctly then upticks the opposing candidate internally.

      We need more accountability in the voting process. My scheme would not stop 3 am ballot drops, but at least each real voter could be assured that his vote was counted correctly by the machine, even if he used a sharpie.

    5. Excellent comments, Mileyinfl and Trump's owner. As a former CPA and auditor, the MAIN problem is the fraudulent use of voting machines that have no audit trail and all the other methods of fraud used with the ballots. THIS is where everyone's heavy focus should have been last week, not on the suicidal "circular firing squad".

      The answer is not for us to learn to ballot harvest etc. The machine fraud would still succeed. And our elections would disintegrate even further into an utterly chaotic fraudfest that the most vicious bully wins.

      No, we need to stick to pushing the only auditable mode of voting--paper ballots which are retained in an organized manner to allow proof by audit, in-person voting on election day only with voter ID, absentee voting only for very limited and defined purposes, equal bipartisan poll watching, etc.

      It would also be good to get the big public accounting firms to step up with one voice and and propose these reforms and other specific measures. We could even begin requiring audits of each election by certified public accounting firms. Heck, publicly traded companies have to be audited to sell their stock on an exchange to protect investors. Our elections are at least as important as this.

      Every American who cares about a true democracy should be in favor of trustworthy elections. Without such trust, the country will be pushed to civil war.

    9. Randy says: You’re right, TPG. But in blue states, the lack of an audit trail is a feature, not a bug. Remember, these are the states that passed laws prohibiting poll workers from asking for voter ID.

      This is not going to change unless/until we get an R president and R congress to pass voter ID laws, set the parameters for federal elections (absentee voting, ballot harvesting, drop boxes, etc), and create a Federal Election Integrity Department, patterned after Florida, with the authority to audit every state, county, and precinct and remove crooks. Unfortunately, this will never happen, because due to our current crooked election system, we can never again get to Step 1, electing an R president and R congress.

    10. I am sad to say that I don't think any Republican, including DeSantis, will win in 2024 or after that unless the system is cleaned up and is fair. The way it is now, it's basically over for Republicans. Instead of "learning to code," learn to fight back and change things.

    11. We don't even have scanners to scan the votes. There are poll workers from all parties, or at least the two main ones, where you vote. Your address and ID are checked. You are handed your ballot to make your choice. You come back to where you are supposed to put it in the box and the poll workers watch you do this. It's simple and practically foolproof, except for the fools voting for Justin. Votes are counted when the polls close at 8 p.m. local time. Winner declared that evening. Your country never should have ventured from this system.

    SF General has improved in the last several years (given the millions that Benioff (SalesForce) donates to the hospital). The point is that there are many top-tier hospitals in Pacific Heights.

    2. This whole thing sounds like a john/prostitute trick gone bad.

    5. I got the J degree because at the time I couldn't have entered the news business without it in Canada. Such were the times in the 80s. Even people with regular degree with getting a Masters in journalism (Ridiculous). However, I know it's worthless and always did. It proves nothing and didn't make me the journalist I was. At this point, it's just another credential.

  11. Visited Munich 42 years ago in summer. One night while carousing in Schwabing, the entertainment district, I saw some German dudes in full football uniforms gallivanting about. Apparently, there was a German amateur football league .. and why wouldn't there be? Football seems agreeable to German culture and they'd pick it up from American servicemen

  13. Daughter won a scholarship to a prestigious journalism school 10 year ago, but was shrewd enough to know that journalism was no longer the domain of "speaking truth to power" or the bulwark that keeps democracy from "dying in darkness"

    So she specialized in public relations and quickly got herself a job after graduation. Which job allowed her to weather the COVID lockdown storm, even tho she had a comorbidity (iron deficiency) that could have caused serious problems

  17. The election - The rest of the story:
    "In House contests, 11 percent of voters indicated they were Hispanic. In both polls, they voted 60 percent for Democrats, 39 percent for GOP ones. In 2018, nearly seven in ten Hispanics voted for Democrats. Democrats also appear to have lost significant ground among Asian voters. In 2018, around 80 percent of them supported Democrats. In this election, it was around 60 percent.

    Obviously, well over half of Hispanics and Asians still voted for the Democratic candidates in 2022, but changes in ethnic party loyalties are usually glacial, and so rapid a shift is really quite remarkable."

    1. "The Democratic Party has done everything it could to spur an ethnic war between the black and Asian populations. You see that here in New York by the attacks on the subways, on the street, mainly by blacks against Asians. The Democratic Party, by pushing this ethnic identity, has pushed ethnic hatred. That’s why the Democrats are surprised that the Hispanics and Asians are moving towards the Republicans. The Hispanics and Asians realize that the Democrats have a race-hatred policy, much like the Nazis. I don’t believe that any political progress can be made in the U.S. until the Democratic Party, certainly the current leadership, is swept away. There cannot be any progress in America today led by the Democratic Party, which is today the ideologically Right-wing party that has turned what should be an economic problem into an ethnic and non-economic problem."

  20. In Nevada, Republican Lombardo handily wins Governor, yet Laxalt loses? Cortez Masto won the same way she did 6 years ago with the late night dump of 30K votes in clark county. If republicans cant fix the system they need to learn to cheat in a better manner. Since they didn't this election, it is clear they are in collusion with the Democrats.

  24. That Vermont high school volleyball story contains good news and bad news. The bad is that the school district favored a cross-dresser’s “rights” over those of normal girls. The good is that those who were suffering under the school district’s sexual discrimination policy sued, and forced the district to step back from its policies.

    It is sexual discrimination for cross-dressers to be allowed into any space where they can satisfy their twisted sexual desires by ogling those of the sex that the cross-dressers are claiming. More than that, when they do that, they should get a legal choice: (1) get qualified medical help or (2) go to jail, do not pass go.

  33. Not leaving Don. Signed up for your substack. I do not have to agree with you on every item.

    Still a Trump supporter. Desantis is purchased.


    But remember the Braveheart movie.

    Desantis, like William the Bruce, might want to do the right thing, be purchased to do the wrong thing, do the wrong thing, and do the right thing after.

    Ballot harvesting is acceptable, even laudable for Democrats (like rioting, looting, burning, attempted assassination) but will prove to be quite illegal when pursued by Republicans.

    Shoving [Republican] Senators up against the walls of the Capitol is acceptable speech [for Democrats]. [Republicans] Parading down the halls of the Capitol will get you years of pretrial detention on a dungeon.

    You want me to ballot harvest? I am a Republican . If I do it, I will end up on prison.
