Flotsam and Jetsam - FBI Searched Biden UDel Digs, Biden Calls Gov. Moore "Boy"

Balloon activity is dying off, or at least they're not saying anything anymore. According to a NewsMax Source: Biden May Give Speech on Balloon, Unidentified Objects. Yippee! Mary Chastain at LI reports U.S. Tracked China’s Spy Balloon as it Lifted Off of Hainan Island "So they knew all along? What a shock." A podcast at Town Hall, posted at Hat Hair, Ballooning Biden leaves America in the dark. Don Surber opines on The hot air of spy balloons. At Breitbart, U.S. Intel Says Biden Likely Shot Down Three ‘Benign’ Objects. Well, they missed a basically stationary target once, they need the practice.Scott McKay at Am Spec says Nobody Believes John Kirby and Karine Jean-Pierre, "Here’s where a complete lack of credibility becomes a problem." Generally good advice for presidents and press secretaries. 

NYPo reports Biden refers to Maryland’s first black governor, Wes Moore, as ‘boy’ in speech, but I assume our governor groveled properly. But how did he know he was male? Ace, Ex-DHS Head Says That Biden Is Manipulating Border Stats So That Border Agents Don't Know Where to Find the Illegal Aliens "Not only will Border Agents not know where the illegal aliens are, but Biden is deliberately blinding our surveillance system so that it can't detect so-called "gotaways" -- and can then present to the public falsified data showing that "gotaways" have been reduced in number. No, Joe. Gotways will increase -- you'll just reduce the number of gotaways that we detect." Also, Biden's Former Top Official For the Security of Nuclear Materials Is Due to Appear in Court Today "Biden's non-binary top official for the security of nuclear materials -- or ex-top-official -- Sam Brinton is due to appear in court for his theft of women's baggage.  . . . The Biden Administration refuses to cancel Sammy the Sneak-Thief's security clearance. Because honestly, isn't just being LGBTQ the highest security clearance there is?!" Mike LaChance at LI is not amused by how the Defense Department DEI Chief Made Disparaging Remarks About White People on Twitter "“I’m exhausted with these white folx in the [professional development] sessions.” At Hat Hair, David Strom details how DEI ideology creates racism and John Sexton reports CBO: Deficits will rise to $2 trillion per year over the next decade. Thanks, Brandon! Insty, WELL, YES: Equity is Marxism re-branded. At the Free Bacon, House Majority Whip Says Biden Had SOTU Outbursts Coming, "Tom Emmer defends Republican behavior during Biden's speech." A little light-hearted heckling never hurt a politician.

At Fox, FBI twice searched University of Delaware for classified Biden docs and Mary Chastain at LI, FBI Searched U. Delaware’s Library for Potential Classified Biden Documents ‘in Recent Weeks’ "Another search kept secret from us plebes." And if they found more, I doubt we will be told. Breitbart claims an Exclusive—Secret China Donations to University of Delaware Soared After the Opening of the Biden Institute. Jordan Boyd at Da Fed observes that To Distract From GOP’s Biden Family Business Investigation, Media Dredge Up More ‘But Trump’ Excuses. The Free Bacon takes note of Intel Officials’ Fresh Laptop Baloney "After calling the Hunter Biden laptop Russian disinformation in 2020, Jim Clapper and co. set about restoring their tarnished reputations." Some things you just can't unlearn. 

Aaron Maté at RCI, Unchastened by Russiagate, the NY Times Doubles Down in Its Special Counsel Coverage. They would have to be capable of shame. Harold Hutchinson at Da Caller, ‘I Knew The Truth’: Former Intel Chief John Ratcliffe Calls Out James Clapper Over Hunter Biden Laptop Letter. John Sexton continues  Looking back on the media's Russia narrative - part four (The hacked election and the Mueller fizzle): Collusion. Also from Da Caller, Pence Will Use Novel Legal Argument To Fight Special Counsel Subpoena

At JTN, Trump vows to mount major ballot-harvesting campaign 'in every state we can', "Analysts have said Democratic vote-gathering efforts explain major wins, midterm successes" PM, Trump announces he is embracing ballot harvesting,  "Our path forward is to MASTER the Democrats’ own game." Althouse sees "Our path forward is to MASTER the Democrats’ own game of harvesting ballots in every state we can. " "Says fundraising email from Donald Trump, quoted in "Donald Trump Changes Tune on Mail-in Voting, Ballot Collection/After years of attacks on early voting, Trump follows other Republicans in suggesting party should embrace tactic" (Wall Street Journal). Is this really a contradiction? You have to play the game by the existing rules even if you are also attempting to change the rules."You can't unilaterally disarm. Politics is Calvinball. Breitbart hears ‘Ridiculous and Fake News’: Trump Team Refutes Claim He Wants Video Campaign to Hype Firing Squads, Group Executions. Well it was Rolling Stone, not actually known to be a pillar of truth.

At Hat Hair Capt. Ed reports Trump hits Haley: She wants to go after Social Security and Medicare ... and me (Don't act so surprised!), and KT Nikki Haley: We need term limits and competency tests for lawmakers over 75 years of age. Twitchy claims Mary Trump owns ‘racist, anti-American’ Nikki Haley with a giant ‘F**k you, Nimrata. Kurt Schlichter at Town Hall is not a fan either, No to Nikki Harris. Frankly, I think wasting any digits on her is boosting her. 

At Am Think Matt Kane thinks The ‘DeSantis Is Trump Without the Baggage’ Crowd is in for a Rude Awakening, when the press starts to focus on him as the Republican contender. They're not above making stuff up. Tom Jackson at Hat Hair VIP notes DeSantis rejects College Board's New Woke, may take all of Florida's business elsewhere. Starve the beast. Julio Rosas at Town Hall catches a Reporter Caught on Hot Mic Making Embarrassing Admission About DeSantis Coverage,""My job here is to ask tough questions and make him uncomfortable, I guess. I'm gonna try! Gonna try to at least get one," Collins said, adding she would like to run up and yell questions at him." which would be OK if they also treated Democrat politicians the same way.

Too funny to let go, Fox, Sen. Dianne Feinstein appears unaware of her retirement announcement during reporter gaggle: reports and sundance at CTH, Apropos of DC – Senator Dianne Feinstein Says She Was Unaware of Retirement.

Athena Thorne at PJ Media reports SCOTUS Will Decide Whether to Take up a 2020 'Rigged Election' Case on Friday "On Friday, the U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) will consider for a second time whether to hear Raland J. Brunson v. Alma S. Adams, a case that alleges Congress had a duty to investigate claims of fraud and impropriety in the 2020 national election, and that member votes against doing so amounted to treason." That might be a little harsh. WaPoo tries to argue Election deniers face a nationwide wave of pushback "The growing effort by election officials and others is intended to counter mistrust arising from Donald Trump’s claims of a rigged 2020 vote"

At ZeroHedge, Bankman-Fried's Bail Guarantors Revealed. "The guarantors were identified in the unredacted bonds as Andreas Paepcke, a Stanford research scientist......and Larry Kramer, former dean of Stanford law school..." Damn, Stanford Profs must make pretty good bank.

David Strom again,  We don't need no stinkin' science! As the CDC continues to push masking despite new evidence that masks are ineffective.

Now, after systematic analysis of RCTs proves masks don’t work, the CDC is standing firm: toddlers should be forced to wear masks despite the obvious fact that they don’t do anything at all, and toddlers are at less risk from COVID than from SIDS. About twice as many kids die of SIDS in any given year than have died from COVID since the pandemic began. So…masks don’t work, kids don’t die from COVID, and their learning is harmed by masks. Hence we should mask kids. OK.

At the Free Bacon, Virginia's Embattled Loudoun County Votes Against Release of Sex Assault Report and WATCH: Preschool Teachers Drill Students in 'Woke' Gender Language "Teachers told to teach kids as young as four about transgenderism and Black Lives Matter. . . . A group that accredits North Carolina day-care centers encouraged early childhood educators to teach kids as young as four about transgenderism and the Black Lives Matter movement." 

WaPoo whines as GOP targets drag shows with bills in at least 14 states. Ace, Tennessee's Governor Signs Bill Outlawing "Gender Therapy" for "Prepubescent" Children (But Not Any Children Who Have Begun to Go Through Puberty) Kristi Noem Signs a Real Law into Effect
Lot of transgender news today. I didn't make the schedule. Note that the fact that this bill only applies to prepubescent minors means it barely protects any children at all. It's a hoax. It's another Con the Rubes play by our repulsive and treasonous "leaders."

But check out the incredible bias in this AP "news" article about a law that actually aids and assists the cause of Transgenderism for Children. (his bolds)
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- After signing two bills into law targeting transgender people over the past week, Tennessee's Gov. Bill Lee has approved legislation that bans gender-confirming treatment for young minors despite objections that the series of bills unfairly discriminate against an already vulnerable population.

Nick Givas at JTN reports Rep. Jim Jordan to subpoena execs from Big Tech firms: 'First step in holding Big Tech accountable'. Gabe Kaminsky at WaEx, writes of Disinformation Inc: Rubio and Johnson demand investigation into conservative media blacklists. Jonathon Turley fears Free Speech is Futile: Gates Goes Full Borg on AI Censorship "In an interview on a German program, “Handelsblatt Disrupt,” Gates calls for unleashing AI to stop certain views from being “magnified by digital channels.” The problem is that we allow “various conspiracy theories like QAnon or whatever to be blasted out by people who wanted to believe those things.”" SF Gate whines Elon Musk reportedly got fewer views than Joe Biden, so he changed Twitter algorithm. $40 Billion speaks loudly. 

VodkaPundit at Insty, MICROSOFT RARELY GETS IT RIGHT BEFORE VERSION 3.0: Bing’s ChatGPT experiment is deeply flawed, and is the future of search. Microsoft never gets it entirely right, but good enough to take over a lion's share of the market. At City Journal, Yes, This Time It’s Different "ChatGPT and automation come to knowledge work." You can't tell them to learn to code, because that's going to be automated too. What will the robots do when they don't need us anymore?


  1. "WaPoo whines GOP targets drag shows with bills in at least 14 states."

    I think they got who is doing the targeting mixed up in their story.

  2. I forgot at "as" between whines and GOP. Sorry.
