ITEM 1: CBS reported, “A private, off-the-record gathering of conservative leaders and wealthy donors will convene this week in Sea Island, Georgia, with appearances by a Biden White House official and several critics of former President Donald Trump.“Trump was not invited to the exclusive event, which will be attended by some of the Republican Party’s biggest donors, according to two people familiar with the event who were not authorized to discuss it.

“The conservative American Enterprise Institute’s annual World Forum this year will be held at The Cloister, a high-end hotel complex in Sea Island, and feature invite-only discussions, meals and access to miles of private beach. The schedule for this year’s forum was obtained by CBS News.”

Trump also was not invited to MSNBC, the DNC convention and Chairman Xi’s Lunar New Year’s bash.

AEI is not a tank and there is not a whole lot of thinking going on there.

ITEM 2: Deadline reported, “Disney Boss Bob Chapek Says Company Won’t Slam Florida’s ‘Don’t Say Gay’ Bill Directly, But Still Committed To Inclusion.”

That shows Chairman Xi must not like homosexuality.

The bill does not ban saying gay. It bans grooming children.

ITEM 3: The Daily Caller reported, “Trans Activists Funded By Big Pharma Push Biased Research Promoting Medical Transitions For Children.”

Peddling opioids and killing off Appalachians by the thousands was not enough for these ghouls. Now these drug pushers are attacking children with their witch doctoring. 

We are creating a generation of emasculated men and deformed women to feed Big Pharma’s profit lines. If the FDA were any danged good it would shut this down.

ITEM 4: The New York Daily News reported, “Rowdy teens repeatedly wreck East Village deli, assault workers who say NYPD has done nothing.”


When you describe rioters as rowdy, you are excusing their evil.

Expect more violence, New York.

ITEM 5: Zero Hedge reported, “Saudi Crown Prince Gives Biden The Cold Shoulder: ‘I Do Not Care’ What He Thinks.”

He makes a good point. The West treats him as if he murdered Jamal Khashoggi, a dissident who had two columns published in the Washington Post, which somehow made him a journalist.

The prince said, “I feel that human rights law wasn’t applied to me. Article XI of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that any person is innocent until proven guilty.”

So let us sum this up. Biden stopped U.S. drilling and made pariahs of the rulers of two leading oil-producing countries.

Those “I Did That” stickers on gas pumps tell the truth.

ITEM 6: Politico reported, “Ahead of the midterm elections, Democrats are expanding their scope far beyond congressional contests and on to governor races in battleground states, seeing them as existential for the party’s presidential prospects, if not democratic governance itself.

“Party leaders, deep-pocketed donors and leading super PACS were already planning to prioritize November’s gubernatorial contests, which have long been an afterthought on national election maps. But their focus has intensified this past year after Republicans attempted to undermine and overturn the last election and Democratic-led federal voting rights legislation went up in smoke.”

That proposal was the Save The Steal bill.

Democrat governors locked the country down. Now they should pay at the polls.  

ITEM 7: PJ Media reported, “Florida Will Be First State to Recommend Against COVID-19 Vax for Healthy Kids.”

Ron DeSantis is doing the job that the FDA should be doing.

ITEM 8: Just the News reported, “Durham filing raises prospect history might have changed if Clinton lawyer hadn’t lied.

“Prosecutor suggests FBI might not have proceeded with key part of Russia probe if Michael Sussmann had told the truth.”

Sussmann will take one for the team, eh?

ITEM 9: The Hollywood Reporter reported, “The U.S. Supreme Court announced Monday without comment that it would not review Bill Cosby’s sexual assault case, leaving him a free man and ending a two-decade legal drama that shifted the cultural landscape, destroyed the groundbreaking Black actor’s reputation, and sent him to prison for several years in his late 70s.

“The high court — whose nine members include two men [FALSELY] accused of sexual misconduct themselves — declined to review a stunning decision out of Pennsylvania that released Cosby from prison in June over the word of a former prosecutor who said he had made a secret promise with Cosby’s lawyers that he could never be charged.”

The prosecutor gave him immunity from prosecution in exchange for a confession.

The new prosecutor reneged, and used the confession against Cosby.

He should never have spent a day in jail because of that agreement.

ITEM 10: The Daily Wire reported, “Alec Baldwin Hopeful ‘We Will Not Be Held Criminally Responsible’ For On-Set Shooting Death.”

The fix is in then.

ITEM 11: Radio Free Asia reported, “The Chinese government has demolished a third Tibetan Buddhist statue in what sources told RFA is the latest example of official efforts to stamp out the Tibetans’ religious traditions.

“The statue of Padmasambhava, also known as Guru Rinpoche, is the third verified by RFA as having been destroyed by Chinese officials since December. It once stood three-stories high at the Chanang Monastery in Drago (in Chinese Luhuo) county of the Kardze (in Ganzi) Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture. It was razed in late January, sources living in exile and satellite imagery revealed.”

The New World Order erases all history just like the Taliban did — and for the same reason: control.

ITEM 12: Flashback to November 21 on how a canal turned a desert into a forest.

Sometimes unintended consequences are good. Good? They’re gggggggreat!

ITEM 13: The Daily Wire reported, “An anti-COVID-19 restriction trucker convoy circling the nation’s capital will not be entering Washington, D.C. — at least not yet, organizers said Monday.

“Organizer Brian Brase spoke to members of the convoy early Monday morning at Hagerstown Speedway in Maryland, where the convoy had camped out for the night. Brase told the assembled crowd that the convoy would not be entering the capital yet out of fear that it would be cast in the same light as the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol Riot.”

Smart move.

The FBI has effectively ended the First Amendment right to peacefully assemble for conservatives.

The bureau however has not sought to infiltrate violent leftist rioters such as Antifa.

ITEM 14: Via Twitchy, Kamala the Mattress Girl said, “We have the ability to see what can be, unburdened by what has been. And then to make the possible actually happen.”

Willie Brown slept with a stupid girl and 25 years later, she became vice president.

Damn him.

ITEM 15: According to the Quinnipiac Poll, the most popular politician in America is…


…Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. He is at 66% favorable/6% unfavorable.

He’s the Tony Fauci of warmongering.

By the way, Fauci fell to 31% in 18 months. The more you know a politician, the less you like.

ITEM 16: The Daily Caller reported, “Democratic Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley, who has repeatedly pushed to defund the police, spent thousands of taxpayers’ dollars on private security, according to newly released Statement of Disbursements of the House records reviewed by the Daily Caller.”

The story said, “According to the new Statement of Disbursements of the House records, Pressley spent $63,000 of her Member Representational Allowance (MRA) on security service in 2021 — spending $28,000 between Oct. 1, 2021 and Dec. 31, 2021 and $35,000 between May 2021 and August 2021.”

And of course, she works in the most heavily policed city in the country, Washington. That does not include the Capitol Police which has 2,200 officers to guard 535 members of Congress and their staffs.

ITEM 17: Outkick reported, “The NFL announced Monday that they have suspended Falcons receiver Calvin Ridley for the entirety of the 2022 season.”

The commissioner said in a letter to Ridley, “For decades, gambling on NFL games has been considered among the most significant violations of league policy warranting the most substantial sanction.”

Those decades ended last August, when it announced, “it has reached agreements with FOX Bet, BetMGM, PointsBet, and WynnBET to become Approved Sportsbook Operators for the 2021 NFL season. These agreements make all four operators eligible to purchase NFL in-game commercial units and other select NFL media inventory.”

His only mistake was betting on his team to win. The Atlanta Falcons are awful.

ITEM 18: NBC reported, “The Supreme Court should take another look at whether federal law grants social media sites like Facebook broad legal immunity when they are used to commit crimes, Justice Clarence Thomas said Monday.

“Thomas’ comments came as the court declined to take up an appeal from a Texas woman who was friended when she was 15 years old by a man on Facebook who turned out to be a sex trafficker.”

I wonder how much Internet oligarchs paid for this permanent Get Out Of Liability card.

ITEM 19: The National File reported, “The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) released its report on worldwide food prices for February and found that prices hit a record high last month. The February FAO Food Price Index reached a new high of 140.7 points, which reflects an increase of 3.9% from January. The index has increased by 20.7% since this time last year and could be further increased by the conflict in Ukraine, as the country is one of the world’s primary exporters of grain.”

Inflation kills the middle class which is why every socialist system promotes it.

ITEM 20: AP reported, “About 10,000 mail ballots were tabulated but not counted in Texas’ most populous county on the day of last week’s election, officials said, adding to the delay in determining some winners in the nation’s first primary of the 2022 midterms.

“Election officials in Harris County, home to Houston, said late Saturday that an oversight led to 10,000 ballots not being counted. Those votes — 6,000 Democratic and 4,000 Republican — will be added to the final tallies Tuesday.”

Houston, we have a problem.

ITEM 21: Defiant America reported, “Reddit Loser Gets Ukrainian Soldiers Bombed After One Of The Soldiers Revealed That They Are Using Schools For Bases.”

Geneva Conventions ban using human shields such as schoolchildren.

Also, the New York Post reported, “Captured Russian officer apologizes to Ukraine for ‘genocide,’ begs for mercy.”

Geneva Conventions ban humiliating POWs.

Cries of war crimes ring hollow when you do these things.
