In Case You Missed It. 

🚨 The Senate dismissed all impeachment charges against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

🥇 Anthony Fauci was awarded the Stearne Medal this week for his “commitment to evidence-based decision making.” Ah-hem.

🇨🇦 Airplane caterers went on strike in Canada this week so you’ll have to find a stale $12 sandwich somewhere else. Or pack your own!

🤦🏻‍♂️ President Biden said that his veteran uncle was shot down in New Guinea and fell victim to cannibals. That did not happen. His uncle did die in a plane crash over the ocean and the body was never recovered. Perhaps by "cannibals," he was speculating about sharks? 

👮🏻 A lost child mistook TV cops for real cops in New York City during the filming of “Law and Order.” She saw the badge on actress Mariska Hargitay and asked her to help her find her mom. The crew stopped filming and did indeed help the lost child. 

🇵🇱 President Trump visited with Polish President Andrzej Duda on Wednesday in New York City.

🌋 Indonesia is experiencing volcanic ash rain after days-long volcanic eruptions, causing hundreds of people to be evacuated from their homes.

Lead: COVID Narrative Was Built On A Giant Pile of Lies

credit: x

You know it's bad when they've even lost Dr. Phil. 

Dr. Phil isn’t buying the Covid narrative any longer. Admitting that Covid policy was not based on science is no longer conspiracy. It is uncomfortable but easy to find. 

“They knew better,” he said on a recent episode of his show, referring to health and public policy experts. In fact, a lot of data shows that “they” did. 

Explaining he’s “not some conspiracy theorist,” Dr. Phil noted, “I’m saying we need to think about whether we’re going to rely on science and how we’re going to react when the government comes in and starts telling us what we can and can’t do.”

For instance, on masks. We sent children to school and sports in masks for days on end and pretended we didn’t know they were toxic. There were already studies showing that masks could be toxic to children before the pandemic.

Another example is natural immunity. We knew that previous exposure to a virus increases immunity to it. We just pretended we didn’t. Doctors have testified to Congress that this undermined trust in other vaccines. 

And that whole stay six feet part from other humans? We also know from Dr. Fauci’s Congressional testimony that that “just sort of appeared.” And yet Dr. Fauci was awarded the Stearne Medal this week for his “commitment to evidence-based decision making.”

Dr. Phil says that the pandemic should show us that "we need less government. I think if they would step back, we tend to have a way to work these things out.”

More Money For Ukraine and Israel

House Speaker Mike Johnson may just die on this hill: more war aid to Ukraine, no money for the U.S. border. The speaker put forward three bills totaling over $95 billion in war aid for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan, even though it may very well cost him his job. 

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has put forward a motion to oust Johnson as speaker and says that support for this motion is growing.

Johnson's package includes $95 billion in war aid for Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan, which he says is "America’s national security interests.” None of the bills include any aid to secure the southern border but a fourth bill is supposedly coming which will, according to, “include a TikTok ban over unfounded allegations that the popular video-sharing app is a Chinese spy tool [and] give the federal government the power to sell off frozen Russian assets to make more money available for Ukraine, which would amount to outright theft.”

President Biden supports these bills because, as Representative Thomas Massie says, “Johnson’s plan is Biden’s plan.” 

They both suck.

Russian Sanctions Having The Opposite Effect

Western sanctions have not hurt Russia, according to the Washington-based International Monetary Fund (IMF). In fact, the IMF has raised its forecast for the Russian economy, saying it is expected to grow by 3.2% this year. 

That is even higher than the Russian Economy Ministry expects of itself, which is 2.3%. The economy grew by 3.5% last year. Isn’t it funny/not funny that the World Economic Forum predicted that the Russian economy would decline by 6% in 2023? 

Given that sanctions have only acted as a boomerang and hurt the countries that imposed them on Russia, you would think that policy leaders would re-think the idea of putting them on Iran now, right? You would think that but you’d be wrong. 

The White House says this about new sanctions plans: “In the coming days, the United States will impose new sanctions targeting Iran, including its missile and drone program as well as new sanctions against entities supporting the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and Iran’s Defense Ministry.” 

What's Trending?

Sydney Sweeney is trending because some jealous Hollywood producer said that she is “not pretty” and that she “can’t act.” A rep for the actress responded: “How sad that a woman in the position to share her expertise and experience chooses instead to attack another woman. If that’s what she’s learned in her decades in the industry and feels is appropriate to teach to her students, that’s shameful. To unjustly disparage a fellow female producer speaks volumes about Ms. Baum’s character.”

Nelly is trending because he is engaged to singer Ashanti and they are expecting a baby.

Red Lobster is trending on news that the chain is filing for bankruptcy. 

News By The Numbers

Trillions. That is how many cicadas will emerge next month in the U.S. Experts say that a “13-year periodical cicadas with Brood XIX and 17-year periodical cicadas with Brood XIII will sync up and emerge simultaneously for the first time since 1803” and that it will be loud.

“An enormous sum.” That is how much actor Hugh Grant will get from the publisher of the Sun. The two parties settled a case based on accusations that the Sun hacked his phone. 

 28. That is how many people were fired at Google for their participation in a 10-hour sit-in to protest the company’s ties with Israel. 

First Amendment Day

September 6 is now ‘First Amendment Day’ in Eastpointe, Michigan! The city agreed to establish this annual day in a settlement after the mayor shouted down residents in city council meetings. 

Video of the former mayor haughtily refusing to hear her constituents went viral and the four constituents teamed up to sue with the help of free speech legal foundation FIRE. The city settled the case and each plaintiff will get “$17,910 — a sum representing the year of the First Amendment’s ratification (1791) — plus attorneys’ fees, for a total of $83,000." 

“The First Amendment protects every American’s right to criticize government officials,” said FIRE attorney Conor Fitzpatrick. “With this settlement, Eastpointers can have confidence their voices will be heard and local governments can be left with no doubt there are serious consequences for violating the First Amendment.”

Loving this outcome!
