How This Page Works

I post M-F and throughout the day news items that you’ll most likely not read elsewhere.  Typically I start posting around noon CST and up to about 6 pm.  Think of this page as an informal journal where you will find breaking news items every day.  Please SHARE and help me grow.

Let’s Get Started

17 Seconds

From the time the officer pulled up until it was all over.  That’s not enough time to think anything through much less when you’re faced with saving the lives of other people.

 Daily Roundup

  • The DOJ could be shooting themselves in the foot as the saying goes.  They have released known BLM protestors who charged the Capitol on Jan 6th.  By demonstrating prejudice in their actions they are opening up the door for courts to order the dropping of all charges for all protestors.  It’s called the 5th and 14th Amendments.
  • OK passed a law that protects drivers who hit protestors on highways.  It also penalizes those protestors with up to one year in jail and a $5,000 fine.  Way to go Oklahoma!
  • Pennsylvania Republicans sent a letter to Governor Wolf informing him that they will not approve any nominee to the Public Utility Commission so long as he continues calling for a carbon tax.  This is how you fight the good fight of faith.
  • Alaska joined Florida in suing the CDC for issuing a no sail order which prevents the luxury liner industry from operating in the U.S.  Other nations have already started their cruise line industry again.
  • SCOTUS rejects an appeal from a Mississippi man who was convicted of killing his grandfather when he was 15.
  • “For New Yorkers, the combined state and federal capital gains rate could be as high as 52.22%. For Californians, it could be 56.7%.” – Zero Hedge
  • “A BLM mob stormed the Oklahoma Capitol, causing lawmakers to go into lockdown and forcing police to clear the protestors out of the building I wonder why this isn’t national news? Why isn’t the FBI tracking them down and interviewing their relatives? Where are the charges?” – Charlie Kirk
  • TN man convicted for selling $120m trade secret to China.  NOTE:  The man’s last name is YOU so don’t take it personally when reading 🙂 
    • Following a twelve-day trial, Dr. Xiaorong You, aka Shannon You, 59, of Lansing, Michigan, was convicted of conspiracy to commit trade secret theft, conspiracy to commit economic espionage, possession of stolen trade secrets, economic espionage, and wire fraud. You was originally indicted in February 2019 for trade secret offenses and wire fraud, and was charged in a superseding indictment with  economic espionage and conspiracy to commit economic espionage in August 2020.

      According to court documents and evidence presented at trial, You stole valuable trade secrets related to formulations for bisphenol-A-free (BPA-free) coatings for the inside of beverage cans. You was granted access to the trade secrets while working at The Coca-Cola Company in Atlanta, Georgia, and Eastman Chemical Company in Kingsport, Tennessee. The stolen trade secrets belonged to major chemical and coating companies including Akzo-Nobel, BASF, Dow Chemical, PPG, Toyochem, Sherwin Williams, and Eastman Chemical Company, and cost nearly $120,00,000 to develop.

      According to court documents and evidence presented at trial, You stole the trade secrets to set up a new BPA-free coating company in China. You and her Chinese corporate partner, Weihai Jinhong Group, received millions of dollars in Chinese government grants to support the new company (including a Thousand Talents Plan award). Documents related to You’s Thousand Talents Program application were admitted at trial; those documents, and other evidence presented at trial, showed the defendant’s intent to benefit not only Weihai Jinhong Group, but also the governments of China, the Chinese province of Shandong, and the Chinese city of Weihai, as well as her intent to benefit the Chinese Communist Party.

  • Biden’s White House hosts a virtual climate summit because not one world leader accepted his invite to attend in person and I doubt they are attending virtually.
  • “DC statehood can only happen by constitutional amendment. The founders designed the district because federal government needs to have independent control over the seat of government. Imagine federal government beholden to California or Texas for its needs.” – Jenna Ellis NOTE:  Everyone knows that to make DC a state it would require a constitutional amendment.  This is why they desire to pack the Supreme Court.
  • Biden to propose Capital Gains Tax as high as 43.4%.  Did you know the income tax came into being because legislators promised farmers that an income tax would end their tariffs?  After the income tax passed farmers had the highest tariff rate in history plus an additional income tax.  If you play with the devil he will own you.
  • MI State Representative state Jewell Jones, D-Inkster drove his car into a ditch because he was driving drunk in his home state.  Troopers investigated and then arrested Jones but Jones decided he would wrestle with the officers first.  During the conflict, Jones said, “If you hit me, it’s going to be very bad for you. I’ll call Gov. Whitmer right now.”  He later told the officers that what they were doing was going to be bad for them because he was in charge of their budget.  The troopers had to tase Jones twice and finally resorted to pepper spray.  Jones refused to give a breath test so the troopers acquired a warrant to draw blood where Jones’s alcohol content was twice the approved limit.
  • “REMINDER: Green New Deal Year 1 Household Costs: Alaska: $100,505 Florida: $73,010 New Hampshire: $72,463 Pennsylvania: $72,439 New Mexico: $71,910 GND would cripple American families.”  – RSLC
  • NH Governor Sununu (R) has one of the highest approval ratings for a governor in the nation standing at 69%.
  • The pressure is mounting in Michigan as Governor Whitmer’s lies are being exposed.  The GOP located an interview with the governor and media where she outright lied about her travels.
    • Reporter: “Have you had any days off for the last year? That’s the question I want to know.”Whitmer: “Um, I didn’t do much of anything, you saw me, I was here in town the whole time.”
    • “the whole time.” was found to be a lie as she secretly travelled to Florida during spring break even though she issued lock down travel orders for the rest of the state and complained about how everyone was visiting Florida and bringing back the virus.
  • “Many California students still can’t return to the classroom. But, hey, it’s great to see the maskless, indoor Oscar party is a go!” Rep. Issa
  • “China is building new coal plants at three times the rate of the rest of the world. The Paris Climate Accord doesn’t require them to lower emissions until 2030. This is a joke.” Senator Cassidy
  • The House votes to make Washington D.C. the 51st state of the union by a vote of 216-208. The reason the founders never wanted D.C. to be a state is because no state should have preferential treatment because it’s home to our nation’s Capitol.
  • Maricopa Co. shipped 2.1m ballots and additional election materials to the Memorial Colosseum on Wednesday and will continue on Thursday.  I’ll have the live video feed of the audit on this site starting Friday.
  • Attorney General Merrick Garland announced a federal investigation into the police practices of Minneapolis managed by long time Democrat leaders.  
  • 4,000 incidents of violence are reported every day in our nation’s schools.  This is one problem a political office can’t solve but they sure can exploit it.
  • Facebook is accusing the Palestinian Preventive Security Service, which is loyal to President Mahmoud Abbas, of using its system to persecute dissidents within the region.  The anti-human rights intelligence agency dressed spies up as journalists and then created a fake app for citizens to submit anti-Muslim or anti-Palestinian stories to.  Then the spies did their dirty work. 
  • Global Economic Growth Predictions for 2021
    • US 5.9%
    • Eurozone 5%
    • UK 5.3%
    • Japan 2.4%
    • China 9%
    • India 9.8%
    • Singapore 7.5%
    • There’s a significant backlog of computer chips from Taiwan due to Covid which will boost that nation’s economy this year.  However, several nations have started looking for other options to ensure a solid supply chain.  The lack of computer chips has hampered the growth of many industries.  Taiwan’s largest chipmaker announced a $10b investment in new plants.  However, the nation’s longest and hardest drought on record will hamper those efforts.
    • Global consumers amassed nearly $6T in additional savings during the pandemic and they will be itching to spend it once travel resumes this year. 
  • Israel
    • Rafael Advanced Defense Systems and UAE’s Group 42 have signed an agreement to research and build new defensive weapons to help protect their combined interest.  The growth between the two nations is astounding, to say the least, and creates hardships on other Muslim nations who might attempt to invade or attack Israel.
    • 150,000 Israelis have now visited Dubai since the two nations signed a historic pact allowing for travel between the two nations.  
    • A manufacturing site in Israel that builds the Arrow 4 ballistic missile system had an unexplained explosion yesterday with a large mushroom cloud visible for miles.  No official word on the cause.
    • “A surface-to-air missile was fired from Syria to Israel’s southern Negev. In response, we struck the battery from which the missile was launched and additional surface-to-air batteries in Syria.” – Israeli Defense Forces
    • Joins Greece in joint military training excercises.
  • “The video shows that there’s more to this. It requires us to pause take a close look at the sequence of events…we have to ask ourselves what information did the officer have, what did he see, how much time did he have to access the situation, and what would have happened if he took no action at all.” Ned Pettus Jr, Director of Public Safety for Columbus OH
    • This quote was from a press briefing regarding the police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant.  Ma’Khia was attempting to stab several bystanders with a knife as clearly seen in police body cam footage.  She came real close to ending the life of another woman when the officer made the lightning fast decision to protect the innocent by shooting the guilty.  Dr. Pettus is an older black gentleman whose presence is reassuring and it was refreshing to hear someone speak the truth in a sea of lies.  Should we say that an officer can no longer shoot someone attempting to end the life of another person?  According to BLM who rushed to judgement that’s exactly what they are saying. It would have been ok for Ma’Khia to have stabbed and killed another black woman but it wasn’t ok for a white officer to step in to protect that other black woman.  Typically I stay away from these events because of the various circumstances behind the cases but I’ve watched 3 different bodycam’s footage and the officer made a courageous choice to save the life of a black woman.  Even the black women were heard on the body cams saying the girl was trying to stab them.  We must not shrink back from protecting the innocent just because of Marxist extremism that has invaded some of our cities.
      • Meanwhile, a 13-year-old girl stabbed another 13-year-old girl in Cincinnati over words.
