Commentary: Trump’s Triumphant Endorsements

The primary results from Arizona, Kansas, Maryland, Michigan, and Missouri raise a fascinating question about the gap between the propaganda media analysis of President Donald Trump and the scale of his achievement as a national Republican leader. 

To understand President Trump’s impact on the Republican Party, consider the most famous political purge attempt in modern times – President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s effort to topple three conservative senators from his own party in the 1938 elections.

Hey, when you gotta go, you gotta go

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (WPEC) — A man was brutally beaten after a group cut in line to a public bathroom in Hollywood on June 19 and it was all caught on video.

The wife of the victim told officers the fight broke out after two couples cut in front of them in line to the bathroom. The woman said she was pushed by one of the women in the group, and that's when her husband stepped in to protect her.

Living out that childhood fantasy

SALT LAKE CITY - Authorities said they have arrested a man they believe stole an excavator from a construction site and drove it for nearly a mile before ripping up the ground at a local grocery store. 

Salt Lake City Police in Utah said the incident happened Saturday just after 12 p.m. local time. They said they were called to 828 South 900 West where the suspect was digging into the ground. 

Because that's how they roll in the East Bay

A mourning family at a funeral of an elderly woman got slammed into by vehicle driven by an uninvited family member at a Northern California cemetery on Saturday. 

The uninvited attendee, who may be the son of the deceased woman, was allegedly fighting with his sister at Rolling Hills Memorial Park the time of the incident. 

The son then got into his car and attempted to hit his sister. Instead the unidentified man hit another funeral attendee who suffered injuries.

*****

If he wasn't the Black Sheep of the family before, he damned is now.

Your Feel-Good Story of the Day

A Tennessee officer is being recognized for his good deed after a bystander captured the sweet moment and shared it on TikTok. 

Officer Lance Hofmeister with the Murfreesboro Police Department figured he was just doing his job when he helped escort 84-year-old Elizabeth Goode to her hair appointment in April. But unbeknownst to him, his good deed did not go unnoticed.

On the morning of April 29, 2022, Hofmeister was patrolling his designated area when he saw Goode walking on a very busy stretch of highway.  

"That’s part of my zone that I work every day and I just observed her walking down an extremely busy road with her walker," Hofmeister told FOX TV Stations. 

Your Thursday Morning Florida Report

“Meth is legal now.” 

That is what Enzo Zabala-Cardozo, 31, “advised” Florida cops who caught him, glass pipe at his lips, attempting to light up early yesterday in a St. Petersburg alleyway, according to an arrest affidavit.

Good Morning


 Man, I love that Spitz smile. Reminds me of CharlieGodammit.

It took her FIVE days to decide to help herself out??? FIVE DAYS???

MANTUA, Utah (KUTV) — A 64-year-old woman who was last seen in July has been found alive after she endured a harrowing journey to safety, authorities said. 

According to a statement from the Box Elder County Sheriff's Office, the Brigham City woman was reported missing July 26. 

It turns out she had crashed her car into a steep ravine in an area where no one could see her. She spent a total of five days at the bottom of the gorge before deciding she would need to find her own way out.

See what happened when your brother fucked up?


 

Hmmm, the name 'that asshole dog Jack' didn't even place

Time for America’s dog owners to start getting more creative. 

A new study has determined that “Luna” is the most popular name for dogs in a whopping 35 states. Nationally — and not surprisingly — Luna was also the most common name for dogs in general, followed by Bella, Max, Cooper and Daisy, according to the findings.

*****

Luna? I've never heard of a single dog named Luna. Who names a dog Luna, anyway? Sounds like a fucking New Age or hippie name to me.

All those people naming their dog Luna..... reminds me of about 40 years ago when Brandon and Brett were real popular names for baby boys in the Central Valley. I personally knew of 3 different couples that had boys named Brandon or Brett.

Kids, don't try this at home!

Harbor Freight's Dirty Little Secret - How Their Tools are so Cheap and Which Ones You Should Avoid

Harbor Freight has a secret. This secret is the key to how they are able to make and sell their tools so cheap. When you understand how it all works, you will know what tools you should buy from Harbor Freight and which Harbor Freight tools you should avoid.

VIDEO HERE  (9:11 minutes)

*****

I had a fair amount of HF hand tools for the job when I worked out at the ammo plant. Oh sure, I had good tools as well from the Snap-On truck that came out once a month, but there were those hard to get to nuts and bolts, and there was no way in hell I was going to heat up and bend or chop and weld a good wrench - that's what the HF tools were for.
That and loaners - if you came up and wanted to borrow a wrench, guess what I'm going to hand you?

I did buy a stick and a mig welder from HF when I decided I wanted to learn to weld. I wasn't sure I was going to stick with it, so I didn't want to spend the money on Lincoln welders. The HF cheapos served their purpose for that.

And the generator out in my shed is a Predator from HF that I bought when we first moved out here because I couldn't afford a Honda that would cost me 2-3 times as much but only delivering half the wattage. It's a 4000 watt generator and I don't think it cost me but maybe $350 back then.
I just now checked for a 4000 watt Honda and they're 1900 bucks. I don't recall what they were back then but it was more than I wanted to pay.

It's served me well for 6 years now, no complaints. The only time it's ever failed to fire up on the first couple pulls was over some bad gas. I drained it, filled it with fresh gas and it fired right up just like it's supposed to.

Father Whose Son Developed Myocarditis Gets Pharmacist to Admit They're Omitting the Truth

It's now been over a year and a half since the vaccine rollout, but this may be the most important conversation you've heard on the subject yet. During a phone call with a distraught father, a pharmacist admits the truth out loud, recorded for all to hear: parents are not receiving fully-informed consent on the not-so-rare, severe side effects. 

To ease the ability to follow along, I have provided the full transcript:

Spain Bans A/C Dropping Below 80°F, Threatens Massive Fines

Citing “a real risk of a natural gas shortage during the coming winter," the Spanish government has decreed that all shops, department stores, cinemas, hotels and public buildings cannot have air conditioning set below 27 degrees Celsius (just below 81 degrees Fahrenheit) in the summer, heating above 19 degrees in the winter (66 degrees Fahrenheit).

Living the Life of Riley

The Los Angeles City Council on Friday voted to put a controversial hotel housing proposal on the November 2024 ballot. 

The measure proposes that L.A. motels and hotels take in homeless people and provide rooms for them alongside paying guests.

*****

The article goes on to say that the program wouldn't be voluntary but what I'm wondering is who's going to pay the owners for the damages you know they'll incur, and who's going to foot the bill for the eradication of vermin after each 'guest' checks out, the taxpayers or the owners?

Markets Think Biden Administration Faked Gas Demand Data To Force Prices Down

WTI crude has lost ~9.5% over the previous week, landing at $89.26/bbl, losing essentially all the gains it had made since Russia invaded Ukraine. It was the largest one-week percentage decline since April, amid growing fears that oil demand could collapse if there were to be a full-blown recession.

Commentary: We Need Trump and DeSantis

First, a caveat: this Trump versus DeSantis debate that pops up here and there really isn’t as big a thing as the legacy media and some of the old-school political trolls want to make it, because there is no rivalry of any real note between Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis.

Santa Monica nursing home tells wrong patient’s family about death

A mix-up of residents at a convalescent home in Santa Monica has upset a woman’s family after they were told she was dead, only to find she’d been confused with another patient. 

A nurse at Santa Monica Convalescent Center — which is changing its name to Sunset Park Healthcare — told the family of 83-year-old Isabel Valencia that she had died. However, it was a different resident who had died, according to Valencia’s son-in-law Mike Fanous.
