It’s just another daily outrage…
There were outrages during the Trump Administration too. Most of them were caused by turn-coats in his administration and in Congress. Pres. Trump was never and is not a conservative. He’s a populist and in his way, a patriot, still up to his hips in a swamp. I realize that he has the political machine to place him in the lead at this point, but I personally think that he may lack the ultimate momentum to gain the Republican nomination. It’s still very early.
The ancient city of Ephesus
Full of Ephesians who need to be set straight.
** In Wisconsin -Rather than going after criminals stealing cars, the city of Milwaukee is going after carmakers.
This week, Milwaukee Common Council approved retaining outside counsel to sue Kia/Hyundai over rampant thefts of the vehicles. City Attorney Tearman Spencer made the announcement Wednesday, according to FOX6.
The resolution by Alderwoman Milele Coggs and Alderman Khalif Rainey that was approved allows the city to retain outside counsel “for thope purpose of pursuing all potential remedies for damages suffered by the City of Milwaukee as a result of nuisance levels of automobile theft.”
The council members blame the manufacturers for making vehicles without anti-theft systems.
As a result, city leaders say stolen cars are involved in crashes, and the city’s reputation has suffered.”
Their solution is as woke as it is possible to be.
** More on flying cars – Jetoptera’s vision is a world where aerial mobility is commonplace. To help make that vision a reality, Jetoptera has developed a unique propulsion system ideal for vertical and short takeoff and landing aircraft. The Fluidic Propulsive System involves no spinning propellers or fans on the outside of the aircraft and is integrated into a novel airframe. The result is an extremely compact design that Jetoptera believes is highly scalable with many advantages over legacy technologies.
** Negro candidate Phillip Washington withdraws – Republicans argued that Washington, who has served as the CEO of Denver International Airport for less than two years, was unqualified to lead the FAA because of limited aviation experience. Washington also ran transit agencies in Denver and Los Angeles. “Given the significant challenges facing the FAA, this wasn’t the time for an (token) administrator who needed on-the-job training,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), a leading Washington critic, said in a statement Saturday night.
** The FBI – Hunter Biden Connection News broke on Thursday that Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, had an FBI informant named “one-eye,” who tipped off his Chinese business partners about an FBI investigation into their shady business dealings.
The informant reportedly gave information to Biden’s business partner, Patrick Ho, who warned Hunter about the investigation, which allowed Ho to escape arrest. The information was shared on Fox News by Tucker Carlson, who interviewed Miranda Devine, the journalist who originally reported on the story.
** Arizona Governor’s Race (revisited) – Amid a razor-thin win for the Democrat in the last Arizona gubernatorial election, most voters there say they are suspicious of the results. That’s according to a new Rasmussen Reports and College Republicans United survey.
The poll finds that 55% of likely Arizona voters believe it’s “likely” that problems with the 2022 election in Maricopa County affected the outcome, including 35% who think it’s “very likely.”
Republican candidate Kari Lake officially lost to Democrat Katie Hobbs by a margin of about 17,000 of more than 2.5 million votes cast. Lake had been leading Hobbs in some polls by as much as double-digits leading up to the election.

In the Age of Fighting Sail
Spic and Span
When the age of discovery took off in the 16th century, the Dutch built many new ships for this purpose. Their word used to describe their brand-new boats was “spiksplinter nieuw,” which means new in every spike and splinter (spike meaning the large nails used to fasten the ship together and splinter referring to the wood used to build the ship). The British sailors called them “spike and spanew,” and American sailors warped that phrase to “spic-and-span” to mean clean and polished.
