Anyway, none of them compare with Drudge in its heyday, but it's an interesting list.

I kind of like (or got used to) the Drudge format, if not the content. I hate pages like Whatfinger that have photos for every story, so you can only see the 8 or 10 they choose to put at the top of the page, and then I have to keep scrolling down. Pro Trump News copies the Drudge format, so that's good. I don't necessarily want biased news one way or the other, but I'd rather have that bias than TDS-infected pages.

Good afternoon! Cold and rainy here,at least the snow melted! I took a nap and just now catching up,there are three links to Dov Fischer,so I read his article. Very powerful.
I broke quarantine yesterday. :) I went to Walgreens. Not to worry,I wore a mask.

Rand Paul comment:

Based on the idea that recovering Corona virus patients are developing immunity and that it can be beneficial as donated. Studies show that the recovering covet 19 patients from the asymptomatic to the very sick are showing significant antibody response. Studies show that SARS and MERS also viruses induce immunity for at least two to three years, and yet the media continues to report that we have no evidence that patients who survive coronavirus have immunity. I think actually the truth is the opposite. We have no evidence that survivors of coronavirus don’t have immunity and a great deal of evidence to suggest that they do.

Does SEN Paul's comments indicate there has been a scientific study where those patients who have gotten sick from COVID 19 and survived it have been intentionally re-exposed to the virus and displayed immunity from getting sick again?

Infinite money printing: Fed now buying ETFs

Just when you thought they couldn’t come up with any more crazy ideas, the Federal Reserve announced last night that they will start buying Exchange Traded Funds, effective immediately.

Just to be clear, this means that the Fed is going to conjure money out of thin air, and then use that new money to buy ETFs.

But not just any ETF. The Fed is specifically targeting ETFs that own corporate bonds.

The key idea here is that the Fed is trying to bail out bankrupt companies across the Land of the Free.

Jane, the more interesting question about Flynn's bill at Covington is how trivial that $4 million might be when he sues for damages caused by mal-representation and undisclosed conflict of interest if some of those rumors pan out. Too bad we can't all buy stock in that claim.

I wonder if he'll go there OL. They will lose a ton by not being able to represent any of the unmaskers, as well.

GHW Bush declared Project Mockingbird "closed" in the 70s and it wasn't an eavesdrop outfit. It was in the news placement biz.

Ig-

Yes, much talk of the PLAN to buy ETFs, again. Just like a few short months ago.

And yet, they still have bought nothing in that area. Nothing.

You want a legit alternative to Drudge?

Go to Rantburg. It is primarily focused on WOT but pages 3,4,5 And 6 are great aggregators of the rest of the news. The commenters are a lot of ex-grunts of varied services but spit bullets from time to time.

Here's a somewhat odd story.
A friend from my men's bible study texted a day or two ago to say their dog keeled over and croaked for no apparent reason after several minutes of some type of acute respiratory problem.
He has two teenage sons so their doc instructed the whole family to go to Quest to get Covid antibody tested.

I have it!

The answer to contact tracing. Everyone will carry around an old style library card and a personal stamp.

Every time you get within six feet of someone you get to collect their personal stamp.

We could have contests on length of card or ingenuity of stamp design.

I tell you people would want to get back together again just for the sport!

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

A song to not mess with cowboys is presumably warning strangers, mostly men presumably, not to tangle with cowboys because they're tough guys.

Mommas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Cowboys which I think Willie Nelson actually wrote was a warning to mommas that her son would be different and lonely and have a difficult time so he ought to be a doctor or a lawyer instead.

I got a better answer to contact tracing. Everyone carries around a shotgun.
Sure as shooting people will keep their distance and be polite about it. there won't be any contact and there won't have to be any tracing.

The ones that don't abide by the rules will not die of covid.

Yeah Dave I thought so because I've been watching him at 7:00 but hearing he's on at 5:00.

I'm watching him now. No one - NO ONE is better at talking about the stuff I want to hear about (Obamagate) and he has the best guests every single night.

Oh and did you hear the latest about Lindsay Graham. He says there is no reason for the Senate to call either Obama or Biden as witnesses.

He needs a republican opponent for the election. He sucks.

I still say the shutdown Dems haven't thought this through.

For example, do they think Elon Musk is a Republican? The guy's threatening to move his plant to Texas. What are the chances he'd vote for a Dem this November?

They're creating Trump voters. California could even be in play this year.

So officially CA is in Phase 2 which as far as I can tell doesn't mean a whole lot.
However counties without many cases can attest to their worthiness and the Sac empire will allow accelerated Phase 2 stuff like sitdown restaurants that allow half the fire marshal rating or seat every other table and most retail can reopen.

Since we have had 8 cases which are all recovered I hope we can be good enough little boys and girls to keep the feudalists in Sac happy.

I have a new financial instrument for the Feds to buy.

I call them International Overdraft Units. I can issue them in various currencies and market them in Euros, dollars or bitcoin.

They will be used to purchase appropriate real estate and be secured through a series of Cayman Island, Panamanian and Bermudan banks.

Any takers? Paging Messers Powell and Mnuchin.

Honest, it's a sure thing.

Extraneus

Well the Tesla employees are probably paying close attention, since they know they're not all moving to Texas.

And what will all the students do in LA? Get jobs at Walmart or Home Depot? Stay home with mom and dad?

Republican states will be wide open before the start of the Fall semester, and large gatherings will return.

Hmmm...

Maybe they're afraid of Trump holding rallies in blue states?

Treason: the crime of betraying one's country, especially by attempting to kill the sovereign or overthrow the government.

Sedition: conduct or speech inciting people to rebel against the authority of a state or monarch.

Lindsey Graham does suck.

It wasn't just Democrats amping up the pressure. Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said a special prosecutor should be appointed if investigators find any evidence of wrongdoing by the Trump campaign, adding that Sessions should recuse himself from any investigation into contacts between the campaign and Russia.

https://web.archive.org/web/20170302051151/http://www.politico.com/story/2017/03/graham-sessions-trump-russia-235597">http://www.politico.com/story/2017/03/graham-sessions-trump-russia-235597">https://web.archive.org/web/20170302051151/http://www.politico.com/story/2017/03/graham-sessions-trump-russia-235597

And who was the first person McCain showed the dossier to, Graham.

Extraneus

From the Hirsanyi piece:

It is not conspiracy-mongering to note that the investigation into Trump was predicated on an opposition-research document filled with fabulism and, most likely, Russian disinformation.

SMH. Everyone should suspect by now that the Russian disinfo angle is just prep for legal defenses.

"Your honor and members of the jury, my client - a devoted husband and father - after many years of exemplary service in high positions of responsibility, was simply carrying out his duty to protect America and all that she stands for. If, in his zeal, he was fooled by the clever ex-KGB agent Putin's disinformation, he apologizes unreservedly. But he was doing his job faithfully, and political thoughts were the farthest thing from his mind."

Drop the disinfo angle is my advice, and that was Lee Smith's idea, not mine.

He is allowed a jurist differentiation on this point, he is a federal district court judge and not a some local county or state court jurist - but his career is over at that point and he'll get a sharp rebuke that would be a professional embarrassment at the appellate level - its crazy to think that any judge would go forward and deny the prosecution motion to dismiss.

That’s about the kindest way to put it.

Sullivan should have been removed from the bench for allowing all the crap that went on with the Stevens persecution.

Extraneus

After he called Flynn a traitor and then had to backtrack after a brief recess, yet never faced the slightest consequence, I realized that judges have no supervision. Whatever boards or higher courts people may tout are b.s. He should have been removed from the case and probably the bench right there and then.

Maybe a white judge would have faced some consequences, especially after the Stevens hit, but obviously not old Emmett.
