Highlights of the News

ITEM 1: Robert Clary, 96, is best known as LeBeau on Hogan's Heroes, but was more than a celebrity. He survived the Holocaust. He was 16 when the Germans rounded up his family. The Nazis killed his 14 siblings and parents at Buchenwald.

But he survived and became a song-and-dance man and an actor. Later, he used his celebrity to show the Holocaust was real. RIP to the real hero on Hogan's Heroes.

ITEM 2: KUSI reported, "Vegan food truck owner charged with arson and insurance fraud."

The story said, "The owner, Avonte Hartsfield, then claimed that he would have to permanently close his Rollin Roots food truck after a series of what he said were arson attacks against him. 

"Hartsfield quickly set up a GoFundMe with a $100,000 goal. The GoFundMe description read, 'My food truck (Rollin Roots) was burglarized and vandalized multiple times. Throughout the ordeal I’ve had my power chords cut, my office and truck broken into and items stolen, there was a noose hanging from the door to my office, and finally on October 3rd my truck was burned down completely. The police are in the middle of investigating at this time but no witnesses have come forward and there doesn’t look like much hope for holding anyone responsible.'"

Ridiculous.

The real hate crimes are these hoaxes. Life in prison, buddy. Send a message.

And how about we stop making slavery 160 years ago an entitlement?

ITEM 3Ray Carter reported, "For the second time in a month, a federal court has sided with an Oklahoma father and prevented the Owasso school district from banning the man from campus after he objected to allegedly pornographic material in the school library.

"On Nov. 1, U.S. District Judge John F. Heil issued a temporary restraining order that prevented the Owasso school district from barring Timothy Reiland’s access to campus. On Nov. 14, after another hearing, Heil converted that order to a preliminary injunction."

But wait. There's more.

The Tulsa World reported, "Citing parent feedback, Owasso Public Schools’ Board of Education voted Monday night to formally codify its book selection and review practices to include provisions specifically targeting graphic novels, books that are presented with illustrations throughout.

"Among the policy changes approved by a 4-0 vote was a requirement that every graphic novel will be reviewed by at least three faculty members for 'sexually graphic content and extreme vulgarity' before it is allowed on the shelves at any Owasso campus library."

Boards of education are declaring schools to be No Groomer Zones.

But not in Massachusetts. The Daily Signal reported, "Luis Sousa was ordered not to enter his children’s school after he spoke up at a school board meeting.  

"Now, the father is taking the local Massachusetts school district to court."

Good.

ITEM 4: The Natural News reported, "St. Louis-based chiropractor Dr. Eric Nepute faces federal fines of about half a trillion dollars for allegedly profiting from sales of vitamin D3 and zinc supplements.

"The 27-page complaint filed by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in April 2021 accused Nepute, 41, of profiting from the sales of supplements during the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. He sold vitamin D3 and zinc supplements, which have been proven to address COVID-19 infection, under the Wellness Warrior brand."

I say countersue and make the FTC prove its case in a real court to a real jury.

ITEM 5: Politico reported, "The Senate on Wednesday narrowly advanced legislation to protect same-sex marriage, sending it on to near-certain passage."

Show me in the Constitution where it says Congress regulates marriage.

Better yet, show the Supreme Court.

ITEM 6: The Root reported, "Sorry, the Bar Is Closed: CNN to Cut Back on New Year’s Eve On-Air Drinking.

"The holiday will never be the same without drunk Don Lemon."

Post-Trump, revenues are down. 

Gotta cut back somewhere.

ITEM 7: The New York Post reported, "A Wisconsin man convicted of killing six people and injuring dozens more when he drove through a Christmas parade near Milwaukee last year was sentenced to life in prison on Wednesday at the conclusion of a two-day hearing.

"Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Jennifer Dorow handed down six mandatory life in a prison terms to Darrell Brooks, 40, who was found guilty on Oct. 26 of 76 criminal charges, including six counts of intentional homicide."

Execute and be done with it.

ITEM 8: Republicans in Congress are a mess. Not only did they keep their leadership team in the House but added Tom Emmer to the team. He was in charge of Republican efforts to flip the House.

Despite a 4-point advantage in the national House vote, Republicans barely took the House.

In the Senate, sarcastic congratulations to Mitch McConnell for remaining the MINORITY leader by opposing Republican Senate candidates in Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, New Hampshire, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

ITEM 9: Canada is now a province of Red China.

Justin shames his father, Fidel.

ITEM 10: Now that the election is over, WaPo admitted the raid on President Trump was nonsenses.

The FBI confiscated 11,000 documents. A review showed 99% of the documents were not classified and the ones marked classified were harmless.

The story said, "That review has not found any apparent business advantage to the types of classified information in Trump’s possession, these people said. FBI interviews with witnesses so far, they said, also do not point to any nefarious effort by Trump to leverage, sell or use the government secrets. Instead, the former president seemed motivated by a more basic desire not to give up what he believed was his property, these people said."

Trump had nothing but souvenirs and newspaper clippings.

The FBI had no business doing this.

By their silence, Republicans in Washington are accomplices.

ITEM 11: The Philadelphia paper said, "The Pennsylvania House on Wednesday impeached Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner, accusing him of misbehavior in office and advancing the extraordinary and rarely used process of trying to remove the city’s top prosecutor.

"Although the move had been telegraphed for months by the Republican-led chamber, debate on the House floor was deeply divided and fiery before a 107-85 vote, almost exclusively along party lines. The chamber hasn’t impeached an officeholder in nearly 30 years, and the Pennsylvania legislature has sought to remove someone from office only a handful of times over the last three centuries.

"Republican lawmakers said the action was necessary because Krasner, a Democrat, has implemented criminal-justice reform policies that they say have exacerbated the city’s gun violence crisis. On Wednesday morning, they introduced an amended resolution outlining seven alleged offenses. They include accusations that Krasner has fueled the city’s surge in murders and homicides, obstructed a legislative committee investigating his office, and mishandled specific criminal cases, including the now-dismissed murder prosecution of former Philadelphia police officer Ryan Pownall, who fatally shot a man who was running from a traffic stop in 2017."

Sounds like Philly voters screwed up when they elected the man.

Then again, they elected Uncle Fester too.

ITEM 12: The Daily Caller reported, "Retail giant Target is blaming a surge in organized retail crime for a $400 million reduction in gross profits.

"In a third quarter earnings call, the company cited an inventory shrinkage for a $400 million reduction in gross profit in 2022 compared to last year, Yahoo Finance reported. Target CFO Michael Fiddelke expects the disappearance of merchandise to reach $600 million by the end of the year. He specified theft as a key driver of profit loss in retail that has gotten 'increasingly worse over the last 12 to 18 months.' Target is taking actions to curb the increase in retail theft felt by the store and its competitors, Fiddelke explained."

Target supported BLM financially. It asked for this.

Shareholders should dump the CEO, CFO, COO and the entire board of directors for putting virtue signaling ahead of profit.

ITEM 13: ABC reported, "People who smoke marijuana were more likely to have certain types of lung damage than people who smoked cigarettes, according to a new study that reviewed lung scans of smokers. The researchers who led the study say their findings suggest smoking marijuana may be more harmful than people realize.

"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates at least one-fifth of Americans have tried marijuana at least once. With more states legalizing the drug, it has become the most commonly used drug that is still illegal at a federal level."

Our ancestors banned pot to protect people.

Our generation legalized it to raise government revenues. It's lung money, just like cigarette taxes.

ITEM 14: TMZ reported, "Mariah Carey won't be getting everything she wants for Christmas this year. Her attempt to trademark the phrase Queen of Christmas was just rejected, TMZ has learned." 

Maybe she should settle for Christmas Consort.

ITEM 15: The Daily Caller reported, "Democratic Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney criticized Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott for busing illegal migrants to the sanctuary city, during a press conference Wednesday."

Another sanctuary city complained when illegal aliens arrived.

FINALLY, Rebel News reported, "The two New York attorneys who pleaded guilty in June to throwing Molotov cocktails at a police vehicle during the George Floyd riots of 2020 have been disbarred from practicing law in the state.

"New York’s Appellate Division, First Department retroactively disbarred the two now-former attorneys Colinford Mattis and Oruooj Rahman over the violence amid the so-called “mostly peaceful protests” that engulfed the city throughout the summer."

Wow.

Who would have thought the rule of law would apply in New York City?

    China Mitch on the Primary

    China Mitch, the least capable minority leader since Reconstruction, speaks about the '24 Presidential primary.

    …Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Wednesday vowed to “stay out” of the potentially “highly contested” 2024 Republican presidential primary....

    When he said that, his lips were moving.

    Which means that he was lying.

  2. Suzq22- and these are the RINOS who voted with the left: The 12 Republicans who voted for the bill include Sens. Roy Blunt (R-MO), Richard Burr (R-NC), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Susan Collins (R-ME), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Cynthia Lummis (R-WY), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Rob Portman (R-OH), Mitt Romney (R-UT), Dan Sullivan (R-AK), Thom Tillis (R-NC), and Todd Young (R-IN).
    Burr is retiring and I sure hope NC voters will retire Tillis when he’s up next. We have a supermajority in our state senate and nearly that in the house. A weak expiring governor and an awesome lt gov. These are not the views of NC.

  4. My little sister was a cross of a fre to herselfe spirit and a wild child who was a big fan of Hogans Heroes. Some 40 years ago she did the "Tour Europe via Eurailpass" thing. At some point she muttered "I see nothing, I know nothing" to herself when the elderly woman sitting across from her started and said, "Why did you say that?

    When Kid Sis started to explain that she was a fan of an American show called Hogans Heroes, the woman interrupted, "Yes I know that show, my name is Lotte Klemperer, my brother Werner played Colonel Klink

    Then Lotte explained that Werner was Jewish, and his family didnt approve of a show that made light of the atrocities committed by the German people. Of course, the counter is that all the Germans in the show were portrayed as bufoons, but Lotte certainly has a point

    Well, the upshot is these two females became friends who corresponded for years afterward. What a small world huh? My kid sister channels Sgt Schultz on a train in Germany and becomes a friend to Klink's kid sister

  7. Lowlight of the News!

    The media is quoting DeSantis' liberal billionaire buyer, er, "donor", saying that "Republicans lost the Senate because the Trump-backed candidates in the Senate races were rejected by American voters."

    What a lying piece of excrement.

    Republicans lost the Senate because McConnell pulled Senate campaign funds from Masters in Arizona, Buldoc in New Hampshire, and Laxalt in Nevada, 3 winnable races that we lost. That's at least 3 Senate seat losses on McConnell.

    More, DeSantis-endorsed pro-abortion Joe O'Dea got crushed in the Senate race in Colorado. That's at least 1 Senate seat loss on DeSantis.

    So, McConnell and DeSantis combined for at least 4 Senate seat losses. That's not just 4 seats on McConnell and DeSantis, that's CONTROL OF THE SENATE!

    But ... but ... it's Trump's fault! Right, Don?

  12. For decades the state and federal governments had programs and ads that outlined the dangers of smoking. Even sued the cigarette companies for billions. Now they push pot which is much worse for your lungs. And most pot smokers also smoke cigs when the pot is not allowed. It has and always be about the $. Colorado just legalized magic mushrooms, how soon will users be jumping off buildings thinking they can fly? When the government is involved in the profit of drug sales we are doomed. Remember the CIA was trafficking in heroin during the Vietnam war, one reason Kennedy was killed. And the govt. continues to work with the cartels. Must be in the constitution somewhere, although I cant find a mention.

  24. "By their silence, Republicans in Washington are accomplices."

    By their inaction, Republicans in Washington were accomplices to the illegal changes to election laws made in 2020 by the governors, courts, and secretaries of state of the battleground states (the U.S. Constitution grants to only the state LEGISLATURES the power to regulate how presidents are elected).

    As these changes to the election laws were being made, I recall thinking, "Where is the RNC lawsuit?" Where are the lawsuits by Republicans?" Nowhere, man. The entire Rino Party was good with the changes as they ensured a Biden victory. Disgusting.
