·        Keeping up with all the crazy that is currently dominating and being promulgated by a mainstream media see themselves as opinion makers and not reporters has become overwhelming. It’s getting harder and harder to look into the burning forest and find some trees that aren’t on fire. The coverage of President Trump’s speech at Mt. Rushmore is a good example. Britt Hume commented that “I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a dishonest and biased coverage of any event.” He’s been covering such events for 50 years.

·        Those most affected by the insanity of defunding police are beginning to push back. These people can speak loudly in November.

·        From friend. Meme of the Week. Asked my doctor today how long he thinks this COVID thing will last. He responded with: “How should I know. I’m a doctor not a politician.”

·        Tucker Carlson’s takedown of Tammy Duckworth was a thing of beauty. Watch the clip. It is very good.

·        Something is going on in Iran. Someone is hitting Iranian nuclear and conventional weapons and IRGC facilities practically at will.  

·        Another example of sanity in academia. I’m sure he’ll pay a price as he is assailed by the sheep who signed the letter.

·        Now we know why the feckless mayor of Seattle finally allowed her police to clear out the CHOP zone. Trump had given her an ultimatum that he was going to go in and clear it out.

·        The authors of a study that shows white cops are not killing more blacks has withdrawn it despite standing behind its findings. The reason was that it was “misused.” What does that mean. It means it was cited by a conservative commentator.

·        Finally, an adult in the executive suite of a major U.S. corporation. Ford CEO tells employees who demand they halt the development and manufacture of police interceptors to pound sand. And another who has learned to never apologize to the wokerati.

·        I saw Jason Whitlock on Tucker Carlson’s show. What a breath of fresh air! He outkicked the coverage by a wide margin.

·        This Supreme Court case wasn’t really on the radar of most people until the ridiculous decision was handed down. It was enabled by Justice Gorsuch siding with the liberal faction of the court. Chief Justice Roberts rightfully castigated the opinion. It could have far reaching impact. It flies in the fact of legislation and is seemingly a clear case of the Judicial branch of government overstepping their bounds and making law. It will be interesting to see how this unfolds.

·        This is a sword that cuts both ways. The left might want to re-think calling for a boycott on anyone who doesn’t toe the party line. Somehow, I don’t think this one will gain much traction. There is evidence of support for President Trump by both black and Hispanic voters. If the shift is significant, it can be a real game changer.

·        The Wuhan Virus has pushed climate alarmism off the front pages for the time being and relegated a Swedish schoolgirl to the obscurity she so richly deserves, but there are a few interesting developments. Here is an update.

·        Judge Emmet Sullivan has appealed to the D.C. Court of Appeals for an en banc hearing. Meanwhile more information keeps getting released that undermines the whole premise of the government’s case. One question remains, though, and that is why it took three years for the truth to come out? It looks more and more like the person who should have been indicted is Andrew Weissmann, Mueller’s ethics challenged deputy.

·        Lt. Col. Vindman retired from the Army on Wednesday. Apparently, his next assignment as CO of the Arctic Command wasn’t that appealing to him.

·        Another fake hate crime. I have yet to see one of these that turned out to be real.

·        I highly recommend that you listen to this clip form Dennis Praeger on the importance of honoring your parents.

·        Where could President Trump get his ideas on illegal immigration. Here’s where. I’d like to see this played on national TV, wouldn’t you?
