·        If you read only one post in today’s blog, it should be this one. Victor Davis Hanson: The coup we never knew. I fervently hope there is a reckoning of biblical proportion coming.

When did we assume the FBI had the right to subvert the campaign of a candidate it disliked? Was it legal suddenly for one presidential candidate to hire a foreign ex-spy to subvert the campaign of her rival?

·        You will remember Biden’s reaction to the fact that President Trump had classified documents at Mar-a-Lago. He may now be the definition of ‘being hoist by his own petard’ as Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmented Information, including material related to Iran, Ukraine and the United Kingdom has been found in his office at the Penn Biden Center, a “think tank” funded by the Chinese that paid Biden $1 million/year. The mainstream media is, of course, running interference for him, but there may be a new sheriff in town, the Republican House. Biden Explains. Update: More classified documents found in another location.   

·        Utility Scale Solar Energy Is Useless. Good for sailboats, though.

·        The Climate Is In Great Shape. That doesn’t fit the narrative, though, so don’t look for it to be widely reported in the mainstream media or by feckless politicians.

But the most important point is that the alarmists’ models are wrong. All of the predictions of doom that we see constantly are based not on observation–the actual facts of climate are benign–but rather on model predictions. But we know for a fact that the models are wrong. A model that is refuted by observation is a bad model. Period. It cannot be a basis for public policy.

·        Did Powell just throw the Climatistas under the bus? In what might be regarded as “turning the knife” he made his comments in Sweden, home of high school dropout and noted climatista idiot, Greta Thunberg.

·        Gilmer County, GA: Armed citizens foil robbery attempt. 39-year-old Shawn Sutton pulled a gun on the clerk at the Ideal Mart in North Georgia only to be met with three customers, all armed. Doesn’t sound like a good county to try and pull an armed robbery.

·        Hilarious! A Ladies Guide to Landing a Plane in an Emergency Situation. Roughly half of men polled are confident they could land a passenger plane in an emergency situation. Only 1 in 5 women say the same. Frank is there to help.

·        Is there anything these people told the truth about? It doesn’t appear so, does it. New study debunks Hillary Clinton’s favorite conspiracy theory. Face it, Hillary, the real answer is that no one likes you.

·        Great headline: FDA Fast-Tracks New Alzheimer’s Drug in Boost to Biden’s Reelection Bid.

The president is going to need all the help he can get to mitigate the rapid deterioration of his brain before Election Day in 2024, which is probably why his administration fast-tracked the new Alzheimer's drug, Leqembi, using its "accelerated approval" designation. 

·        So, that explains it. LOL.  AOC, who cooks with gas stove, says gas stoves cause brain damage. Biden Admin Mulls Declaring War on Stoves. Pure Junk Science.

·        You know you are over the target when people like Andrea Mitchell and Jeh Johnson are spazzing in place.

·        Sounds like it is time for King Charles to exercise his power as head of the Church of England and can some folks. Woke Church of England Offers £100M in Reparations Payments for Role in Slavery.  

·        Biden Gets the Papal Blackball. The first Roman Catholic President since John F. Kennedy specifically non-invited.

·        Some things the new Congress should consider. How the 118th U.S. Congress Could Deliver Lasting Results.

·        Sounds like Shaq got some bad advice. He made a bet that he would eat a horned frog if TCU lost to Georgia. He did specify that it had to be “cooked fried frog” but that’s small solace. Hopefully, he only has to eat the legs.

·        Project Veritas Strikes Again: Pfizer scientist admits the unthinkable on hidden camera…they all knew…Before this is all over some people need to go to jail.

·        Seattle school teacher Dan Jewett not likely to miss any meals after being married to one of the richest women in the world for a year. Bezos’ ex getting another divorce a year after marrying second husband.
