    High Gas Prices

    If you read this newsletter, then I assume you are an intelligent person with excellent taste and a keen mind, so I shouldn’t have to debunk the really ludicrous claims from the left. For instance, I assume you would never buy that it’s Trump fault that Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars. Or that gas prices have been rising for 15 months because Putin invaded Ukraine four weeks ago.

    But just in case you have some unfortunate friends or relatives who get their news from sources like CNN, here’s something that might help dispel one of those delusions above.

    The Republican Study Committee put out a list of 81 separate actions that this Administration has taken over the past 15 months against the US oil and gas industries that have made it harder and more expensive for them to produce fuel, leading to shortages and higher prices. Accompanying these actions are the average prices of a gallon of gas each week, showing how it has steadily risen from $2.38 a gallon on Inauguration Day to $4.24 last week.

    In other words, you’ll get more accurate news about gas prices from one of those Biden “I Did That” stickers on gas pumps than you will from the White House or liberal “news” outlets.

    Of course, if Biden still wants to blame Russia for high gas prices, then we could invent a fictitious Russian conspiracy story and claim it was responsible for him becoming President. But who would be dumb enough to believe a tale like that?

    DeSantis signs Parental Rights in Education bill

    If there was any doubt about the veracity of that anonymous letter from Disney employees claiming that a small cabal of leftists were terrorizing any conservative or Christian employees who didn’t embrace their radical LGBTQ+++ agenda, this should settle it:

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed the Parental Rights in Education bill into law. Falsely dubbed the “Don’t Say Gay” bill by leftwing activists, the law actually doesn’t say “gay” anywhere in it, nor does it bar parents of LGBTQ children from discussing it. It just bars schools from exposing children in kindergarten through third grade to graphic sexual content and gender politics without parental consent.

    And the Disney Corporate leadership, which has been critical of the bill up until now, doubled down with a statement declaring that the bill should never have been passed or signed into law, and “Our goal as a company is for this law to be repealed by the legislature or struck down in the courts, and we remain committed to supporting the state and national organizations working to achieve that.”

    So they’ve made it clear that when you spend money on Disney products, that’s how they’ll use it. Overturning this bill to protect children is their "goal as a company." Funny, I thought their goal as a company was to create wholesome entertainment for children and families, not to support indoctrinating small children with inappropriate sexual content without their parents’ consent. That buzzing sound you hear is Walt Disney spinning in his grave.

    Maybe we shouldn’t be surprised at these misplaced priorities, since Disney doesn’t exactly have a sterling track record on protecting children from sexual exploitation, as this story from 2018 reminds us:

    More recently, a Florida crackdown on human traffickers and child predators resulted in the arrest of 108 people, including several Disney employees. Maybe it should be their goal to vet their work force a bit more carefully.

    In addition, a Daily Wire poll found that 67% of Americans think Disney is wrong to oppose this law. Among Disney customers, 61% disagree with Disney’s stance.

    And a survey last year found that 66% of Americans, including more than half of Democrats, think that corporations should not take political positions. In short, if Disney’s CEO thinks he’s on the right side of this issue, then he’s truly living in Fantasyland.

    Revealed: Shocking collusion between the media and the government

    This story about a former media figure revealing how the government intimidated and colluded with the media to enforce its COVID narratives and silence any dissent or questions is from Great Britain. So it doesn’t exactly reflect what happened in the US, but it’s close enough for government work.

    You pay for it

    While I agree that President Biden’s idea of lowering the deficit by taxing “billionaires” while raising spending is economically illiterate pandering that would harm the economy while not lowering the deficit in the long run, I must admit that blogger Don Surber has a good point:

    He says that billionaires who expect conservatives to automatically rush to defend them from Biden tax increases should’ve thought of that before they gave so much money to elect Biden and other Democrats and to undermine every American value we care about (Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerburg, Jeff Bezos, the Twitter and Google gang, etc. etc. etc.) Surber’s message to them:

    “If the billionaires aren't with us in opposing abortion, pedophilia and CRT, then why should we be with them on taxes?” And “We are for limited government and therefore limited taxes. But if the rich are now for unlimited government, then I have four words to say to them:

    You pay for it.”

    Oscar Follow-up And Slapback

    By “Huckabee” pop culture guru Pat Reeder (

    First, a couple of quick corrections to my hastily-written Oscar report: The co-host was Regina Hall, not Regina Bell (missed it by two letters!), and the underwhelming movie about Lucy and Desi was “Being the Ricardos.” I was thinking of “Lucy and Desi,” the excellent Amy Poehler-directed documentary I’ve seen since, and that I strongly recommend over the Aaron Sorkin dramatization.

    Now, on to “The Big Story.” Judging from the wall-to-wall coverage, Will Smith slapping Chris Rock was a more shocking and newsworthy assault than Russia bombing Ukraine (it actually knocked Ukraine out of the headlines.) I’m from Texas, where that wouldn’t even count as a punch. Chris is hardly a brawny guy, and he just shook it off and went on with the show. Some commentators are saying the notoriety could help revive the Oscars’ ratings. Only if next year’s show is like the WWE, with Kenneth Branaugh smashing a folding chair over Dame Judi Dench’s head.

    Personally, I thought it was just disgustingly immature behavior of a type that sadly typifies our age. Try to imagine Cary Grant doing that to Spencer Tracy on “the most glamorous night of the year.” Not just the punch, but the cruel and tasteless joke that sparked it, and the very loud F-bomb afterward. It’s the type of classless, boorish behavior that’s been fostered by the Internet, described by Mike Tyson as the place where people say things to others that they only say when they know they won’t get punched in the face.

    The latest developments are that the Academy is holding a meeting to discuss revoking Smith’s Oscar (prediction: they won’t. These are the same moral giants who gave an Oscar and a standing ovation to Roman Polanski. And they didn't even have the excuse of being surprised; they'd known what he did for years.) Also, Smith released a statement covered with the fingerprints of professional crisis management consultants, in which he finally remembered to apologize to the guy he hit.

    Now, how about an apology from the Academy for not having adequate security, or from all the celebrities who keep preaching to us that “words are violence” and we peasants are intolerant examples of toxic masculinity, but who not only applauded a man whom they’d just watched assault someone, but who frequently make it clear that they believe violence is perfectly acceptable if you disagree with what someone says? That ranges from Kathy Griffin holding up the severed Trump head to Sally Field threatening to assault the Governors of Florida and Texas, the latter of whom is in a wheelchair (“Stupid is as stupid does.”) And that violent intolerance is hardly limited to celebrities.

    Finally, how about explaining why they think Will Smith shouldn’t be charged with a crime, but some granny who walked through an open Capitol door and took a selfie on January 6th should spend the rest of her life in prison? Never mind: judging from the scripts of last year’s movies, that would take far more creativity than currently exists in Hollywood.

      Dear Mike,

      Unfortunately the gas pump stickers have it wrong. They should say, "If you voted for me, YOU did that!"

      This is the message that should be constantly transmitted like a drum beat. Of course those who DID vote for the geriatric, diaper-clad moron currently occupying our White House and willfully destroying our Constitution, our economy and our moral compass will just say as you noted, that Putin did that or Trump did that. They are delusional and can't be reasoned with. That's what makes them so dangerous to our society.

      Is it possible, maybe just possible, no accusations made yet, that this entire debacle was prearranged, rehearsed and planned?

      Haven’t watched the Oscars for years, BORING. At one time there were actually funny people hosting, winners at least tried to be humble and women covered that which in polite society is usually covered. If the lady in question was that concerned about her lack of hair there are beautiful natural wigs available. Actually she looked stunning. Can you imagine what would have happened had the slap been reversed. White guy beats up on black guy. The whole thing was as tasteless as the Oscar’s have become. And who really cares!

      Judging by your fine article it seems to me that some Disney employees are upset that children won't be indoctrinated into becoming their under aged harems.

    McConnell will step down as Senate Republican Leader in November

    Mitch McConnell announced Wednesday that he will step down as Senate Republican Leader in November. He is the longest-serving party leader in US history. He did not say if this has anything to do with the criticism he’s received from conservatives or with his recent health issues that caused him to freeze up in mid-sentence a time or two. But while he will no longer be the GOP leader, he intends to continue serving in the Senate at least through the end of his current term in January 2027.

    And here’s a surprise: Robert Kennedy Jr. suggested that McConnell be replaced by Sen. Rand Paul. RFK Jr. tweeted, “It’s time to promote leaders in Washington, DC, who won’t kowtow to the military contractors or push us deeper into foreign conflicts. We need representation who will prioritize American wellness over all else. I believe Rand Paul would be an incredible successor. He’s shown great judgment and has the grit to put hardworking Americans first.”

    Get Out

    Law Professor William A. Jacobson of the Legal Insurrection blog has been watching the politicized lawfare against Trump and conservative businesses and organizations in New York, and the unprofessional threats and ugly gloating by Attorney General Letitia James about how she’s going to destroy Trump. He analyzed the situation in light of assurances by Gov. Hochul that if your business isn’t doing anything wrong, you have nothing to fear. And he arrived at this conclusion: 

    “Get out of New York, if you can.” And if you can’t leave now, “Develop an exit plan before you need it.

    Pray for the Panhandle

    Please join me in prayers today for those in the path of the huge wildfires in the Texas Panhandle and neighboring Oklahoma. There are five wildfires that are causing school closures and evacuations, including the evacuation of a nuclear power plant. The largest of them, the Smokehouse Creek Fire, covers 800 square miles and is now the second-largest wildfire in state history.

    This is a link to live updates on the fires from the Weather Channel.

    No test?!?

    The White House announced Wednesday that President Biden is making an unannounced trip to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for his yearly physical exam…which will NOT include a cognitive test. Press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dismissed questions about a cognitive test, saying Biden proves his cognitive abilities "every day [in] how he operates and how he thinks."  I’m confused, is that an argument for or against a cognitive test?

    Talk about a delicious irony

    One of the strongest arguments for overturning the ruinously large fine on Trump in his New York real estate fraud case is the Eighth Amendment protection against excessive fines. The Supreme Court ruled 9-0 in 2019 that that protection does apply to state courts. And one of the strongest arguments for Trump to cite came from liberal icon Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who said:

    “The prohibition embodied in the Excessive Fines Clause carries forward protections found in sources from Magna Carta to the English Bill of Rights to state constitutions from the colonial era to the present day. Protection against excessive fines has been a constant shield throughout Anglo-American history for good reason: Such fines undermine other liberties. They can be used, e.g., to retaliate against or chill the speech of political enemies.”

    I might not have agreed with many of her rulings, but judging from this, there’s no doubt she was psychic.

    Public Service Announcement

    Public service announcement to anyone thinking of donating to Harvard or sending their kids there: The co-chair of Harvard’s anti-Semitism task force resigned Monday because she has no confidence that Harvard will implement any of the task force’s recommendations to stop Jew hatred on campus.

    Related: Stephen Kruiser at PJ Media has a news round-up illustrating how bedbug crazy these pro-Palestine dingbats are and how they “have more vocal cords than brains,” from calling Jerry Seinfeld a “genocide supporter” to literally setting themselves on fire.




    Private School For Me, But Not For Thee

    Two Democrat Governors, Roy Cooper (North Carolina) and Andy Beshear (Kentucky), co-wrote an op-ed for USA Today condemning Republican attempts to give low-income parents vouchers to send their kids to the schools of their choice. They painted this as a racist conspiracy to loot the budgets of our precious public school system and set our schools back for a generation (as if the COVID lockdowns and the focus on woke politics and LGBTQ activism hadn't already set public school students back a generation.) 

    One problem: Both Democrat Governors send their own kids to elite private schools. But that’s okay because, hey, they can afford it.


    The Best People

    President Trump was roundly condemned as a racist and a xenophobe for saying of illegal immigration that other countries were not sending us their best people. So just to clarify, here’s an example of one of those best people that Joe Biden let in.
