TODAY'S NEWS, April 16, 2024

The News of Today is the History of Tomorrow


Programming note: I am on the road until next Wednesday, April 24, with the Great Homeschool Convention in Ft. Worth, followed by speeches to the Rio Grande Foundation in Albuquerque and Roswell.





IN POLITICAL NEWS


1) Voter registration is surging for the GOP, which has slashed the deficit to Ds in PA, NC, NV, and expanded its lead in FL (and IA and AZ), which aren't mentioned in the article.


2) In President Trump's so-called "hush money" fiasco of a trial, more than 50 jurors were dismissed because they admitted prejudice. How many lied? Also, the judge prohibited the prosecution from admitting the "Access Hollywood" tape.


3) It appears that a key Patriot Day (J6) witness keeps changing her story via "erratums" to her testimony.


4) Texas's energy regulatory authority, ERCOT, is already putting out warnings about insufficiencies in the power grid for summer (i.e., in April).


5) The Demented Pervert in the White House opposes a standalone Israel support bill. Of course he does. He really doesn't want ANY aid to Israel, only to Ukraine. The addition of the Israeli aid was only to bribe the House into voting for Uke money.


6) The Supes sided with an individual property owner vs. the state of Texas on a claim that the state caused flooding of his land through a program designed to prevent flooding. (Thomas wrote the opinion). And more Supe success, where the Court ruled Idaho can enforce a ban on child mutilations.


7) This will likely hurt President Trump by a couple of EC votes, and is contra-constitutional, but Maine narrowly passed a law saying it will award its electoral votes to the popular vote winner. However, if President Trump wins, watch for them to repeal this quick, fast, and in a hurry.

8) Florida passed five new laws to combat grooming.


9) American Airlines pilots have noted a significant increase in safety issues. DEI at work.


10) Beverly LaHaye, Christian activist, dead at 94.


11) A former Trump adviser was tossed from the Federal Elections Board after a leftoid campaign. 12) Pro-Pale protestors take over a highway leading to an airport, shutting it down. This is utterly evil, criminal, and shouldn't stand for a minute. We need laws that allow drivers to continue their forward motion if there are people who are willingly on the road.


13) Big loss for America as the FISA bill passed again with 117 RINOs voting for.


14) Traitor Tuppence got a new gig at Grove City College, while Nick Knack Paddywhack Give a Uke a Bomb ended up at the Hudson Institute. These are positions that are gifts.


15) This is what happens when the medical community loses all trust: record opt-out of all vaccines in Louisiana.


IN ILLEGAL CRIMINAL ALIEN NEWS


16) Illegal criminal invaders just sail up onto a Kollyfornia beach as nothing happens to them.


17) Long Island squatters who were driving a Porsche were finally evicted by sheriffs who changed the locks and removed their personal stuff.


IN ECONOMIC NEWS


18) The shoplifting epidemic is closing stores---a $69 billion in America annually.


19) The "Buffalo Billion," or how a massive state-directed and funded solar panel plant in Buffalo that was to bring in jobs . . . didn't. Ol Elon Musk sold out as soon as he got his initial money from the gubment.


20) Industrial production is flat year over year, but the demonic administration magically revised last month' production up.


IN INTERNATIONAL NEWS


21) Israel warns that an attack on Iran is "imminent."


22) Ohhh nooo! The earth is spinning faster than it used to. "Climate change."


23) Yet the Nothing But Communists (NBC) channel says the earth is rotating slower because of the melting of the polar ice cap.


24) Communist Cuba is on the verge of collapse. Next up, the ChiComs.



25) We have a great new pic of Greedo Thunderberger.


IN ENTERTAINMENT NEWS


26) National Propaganda Radio (NPR) suspended an editor who stated, correctly, that NPR had lost the nation's trust. No truth allowed at Pravda.


27) The Communist News Network (CNN) bounced Charles Barkley's show after six months.


28) And all the people rejoiced! Another leftist media outlet collapsing.


29) Non woke "Godzilla x Kong" "Kung Fu Panda 4" are major successes.


IN CHINA VIRUS NEWS


30) Cardiac arrest is up 20% in Australia. Now, why in the world would that be?


AND FINALLY . . .


31) Years ago when it first appeared, I watched the entire HBO series "Entourage" all the way through (8 seasons). Produced in part by Mark Wahlberg, it was a show about four friends from Queens who, through older brother Johnny Chase (known as Johnny Drama, played by Kevin Dillon), the younger brother Vince (played by Adrian Grenier) lands a top movie role with the help of their agitated agent Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven). Well, recently I watched the whole series again. It was that good. Until the very last post-credit trailer of a homosexual marriage, the series was remarkably un-woke. Among other things that made this show work was its revelation of how dang hard it is to get a movie made in Hollywood---even when you have some of the biggest stars and producers. People won't work together because someone slept with someone's girlfriend at the time; the movie isn't "gutsy" enough to warrant a star; or other agencies/studios sweep in and steal shows. Jeremy Piven was at his best prior to the #MeTooism,  but ironically none of the other four male leads ever did major movies again except Grenier, who had a small supporting role in "The Devil Wears Prada." One gets numbed to the language and the sex, but what remained was a story of loyalty, friendship, and struggle.
