Wednesday News Roundup: Sessions Slammed, Cannon Fired, and Florida’s Covid Frauds Caught

Adios, Jeff! – While Tommy Tuberville is certainly not the most reliable conservative thinker in the world – especially on illegal immigration issues – I have to admit to being in a celebratory mood last night as I read about the election results in the great state of Alabama. There, Tuberville shellacked former Senator and do-nothing Attorney General Jeff Sessions by a whopping 24% of the vote.

Sessions, who was a fine U.S. Senator from Alabama for many years, did this to himself when he sand-bagged President Donald Trump by recusing himself from anything having to do with Russia the day after accepting the AG job under the dubious rationale that he had held one meeting with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. while he was still a sitting senator.  Sessions then sat back and did nothing while Rod Rosenstein and Robert Mueller’s band of leftist thugs ran roughshod over the constitution for two solid years before the President finally, blessedly, fired him.

Thus, while Sessions might – might – have become a more solidly reliable conservative vote than Tuberville, it is still quite pleasing to see him suffer such an ignominious defeat at the hands of Alabama voters.

Sessions defended his recusal decision in his concession speech last night, saying that “I leave office with my integrity intact,” and that he “saved the President’s bacon” by doing it.

Good riddance.

Adios, Nick Cannon! – At least from ViaComCBS, which terminated its relationship with this mysteriously popular entertainer who has aspired to be the Black Ryan Secrest. Cannon formerly hosted “America’s Got Talent,” and currently serves as the host of Fox Television’s “The Masked Singer.”

After Cannon was revealed to have made heinously repugnant anti-Semitic comments on his YouTube podcast about Jews, ViaComCBS released him yesterday, and issued this statement:


That’s great and well-deserved. Too bad the Democrat Party refuses to do the same kind of thing with its blatant anti-Semitic members of congress like Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. But that would require intellectual honesty and integrity, attributes no longer possessed by the Democrat Party.

But back to Mr. Cannon: Everyone needs to carefully read what he actually said and understand he was not making despicably bigoted and racist remarks only about Jews. In the course of his comments, he characterized every white person on earth as sub-human and “closer to animals.”

Here are actual quotes from his rant:

“When you have a person who has the lack of pigment, the lack of melanin that they know they will be annihilated, therefore they know that however they got the power, they have a lack of compassion, melanin comes with compassion.”

“Melanin comes with soul, that we call it soul, we soul brothers and sisters, that’s the melanin that connects us so the people that don’t have it, are, and I’m going to say this carefully, are a little less and where the term actually comes from, and I’m going to bring it back around to Minister Farrakhan, where they may not have the compassion.”

“When they were sent to the Mountains of Caucasus, they didn’t have the power of the sun. The sun started to deteriorate them. So, they’re acting out of fear, they’re acting out of low self-esteem, they’re acting out of deficiency, so therefore the only way they can act is evil.”

“They have to rob, steal, rape, kill and fight in order to survive. So these people who didn’t have what we have, and when I say ‘we,’ I speak of the melinated people, they had to be savages, they had to be barbaric because they’re in these Nordic mountains, they’re in these rough torrential environments, so they’re acting as animals, so they’re the ones closer to animals, they’re the ones that are actually the true savages.”


Note that ViacomCBS limits its condemnation of Cannon’s inclusively racist remarks about all white people to his attacks on those of the Jewish faith. Apparently, Cannon would have been perfectly okay had he just gone after generic white folks.

Note also that Fox, Cannon’s other current employer in his role on the highly-rated “Masked Singer,” remains studiously mute on the matter.

Cannon engaged here in rancid, racist hate speech, pure and simple, just as Louis Farrakhan does in every speech he delivers. I had fully expected both of these media giants to simply ignore this incident, but now that ViacomCBS has at least partially stepped up to the plate, it’s hard to see how Fox can remain hidden away in a corner of the dugout. But hey, you should never ever underestimate the mendacity and lack of integrity of a big media operation, so don’t hold your breath.

News you will definitely not see reported on CNN or in the New York Times. – Dozens of Florida testing sites and hospitals were revealed yesterday to have been dramatically over-reporting their positive COVID-19 testing rates. Independent journalists – not working for any  major media outlet, obviously – became suspicious when the state’s reported number of “cases” spiked over the weekend, and found that more than 50 testing sites were reporting at 100% or near-100% positive rates, a statistical impossibility.

As reported by Zero Hedge:

Journalists scouring the reams of daily data for discrepancies have apparently happened upon bombshell they had been hoping for: Orlando Health has just confirmed that some of the data it shared over the weekend were wrong, after journalists reported more than 50 labs showing 100% positivity rate, or roughly around there. One local Fox affiliate looked into the numbers and contacted a few of the labs to confirm that their internal data matched the public data released by the state.

As it turned out, some of these discrepancies were pretty extreme: Orlando Health, one of the organizations contacted by Fox, confirmed that it’s positivity rate was actually 9.8%, not the 98% that had been reported to the state.


You’re being lied to about this virus, folks. Systematically and massively lied to and brainwashed by the money-grubbing medical community and the corrupt news media. Somewhere in hell, Joseph Goebbels is smiling with pride at this continuation of his heritage.

That is all.

There has to be more to the Gsessions story than just being confirmed to the AG spot and then recusal.
He must have had biome discussion with Democrat senators prior to the appointment, that they would defend him against Trump if he recused himself, or if he would just stand aside from the plot to take out the President, his friends would protect him.
Sessions had to recuse himself for the Russia plot to move forward.
Did Sessions ever say anything about the Russia plot as soon asMueller finished his investigation.
It would have to have been necessary for Sessions to get out of the way for the Manafort, Stone, Flynn prosecutions to go forward.
There needs to be a closer look at what Sessions was up to. Maybe he’ll write a book, or try to get in on another impeachment, because I certainly expect more, probably an October surprise, some pretext, maybe something about the pandemic.
The reason isn’t important, because the Democrats are just using it as a scorecard now about how many impeachment’s they had to get their base and campaign donors stirred up.

Anyone seen any national reporting on this story, at all?


Surely you jest Sir! National news cover this?! Anymore than they would this?

And no mention of the color of the man who hit him, but the neighborhood this happened in is predominately occupied by our dark skinned brethern (hate using the term black anymore as it reminds me of blm) and was Portland’s ghetto for years until the 90’s when things started to turn around. There are still pockets of poverty and gangs there and most residents of Portland know this hence no mention of the murderers skin color.

A once vibrant, truly tolerant and diverse city gone blue and socialist where the least affluent will suffer even more. And they will still mostly vote dem in the election. *sigh*


So Kanye ‘campaign’ has gone dark… oh man… now who are people going to vote for?!?

phineas gage

Well, it did seem a bit dubious. He’s a self-promoter. Trump had a few false starts himself.


You’re gonna need more straight jackets…

The fact that feckless jeff still thinks he saved the Presidents ‘bacon’ is really telling of the disconnect these lifetime parasites develop. Term limits should be imposed which would go a LONG way to keeping the shiffheads, puglousies, mittens and Mcstains from trashing the country while enriching themselves.

What else is mind numbing is the lefts blatant lying and hatred. There is zero attempts at even marginally hiding their contempt for God, Constitution.and the average person. The hatred alone is driving them so far into the looney bin that they themselves don’t know the difference between friend and foe. Right will become wrong and wrong will become right… read that somewhere, looks like we have arrived.

Its a war…


I just don’t understand much of what is going on in the country today. I am referring to the Breitbart article on Whatfinger claiming “live updates” on the elections in AL, ME, and TX, and all I saw was a bunch of twits from all over.

One from Michelle Malkin really praised Sessions thanking him for his dedication to his state and the country and urged him to keep fighting for #America First.

Huh??? Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Michelle? Have you gone south on Trump too?

And Coulter did the same and added her now standard anti-Trump vitriol in her twit.

But my main issue with Breitbart in this case is twits from largely unknown people IS NOT “NEWS” and is NOT Election “Coverage”

As the resigned liberal from the NYT said yesterday Twatter is not on the NYT masthead, but has become the main driver in what pretends to be ‘journalism’ in today’s America.

I don’t do Twatter and haven’t logged on to fraudbook in years and even when I did I was just as a ‘voyeur’ and not a contributor. I soon saw what a waste of time it was even before all the reports of big tech censorship came out.

I’m glad that the President is able to effectively use his Twitter account to his advantage and that it causes so much chagrin to the left, but I heard on Rush awhile back that less than 25% of the country actively engages in social sewer that is Twatter.

To Breitbart and Whatfinger, a series of twits is not a live updating of election coverage – most are brief blurbs, many which make no sense, and written without of any sort of context and are largely meaningless.

What I want in election ‘coverage’ are real numbers and real returns, not a bunch of ass-blanks vomiting stupidity and vitriol.

phineas gage

Breitbart is not what it once was.


There is not a single totally unbiased News outlet in ALL of America. Some are close, however there is not a single outlet that gives equal time to both sides of the argument. The MSM has become so toxic that the Conservative sites have had to take the opposite stand. NOT ONE SINGLE NEWS OUTLET GIVES AN EQUAL UNBIASED POLITICAL OPINION IN AMERICA! That should scare the shit out of any person who believes that they are a free thinker.

phineas gage

It should scare the traditional media, who will soon be going out of business


Noticed that the headline is going clickbait. Articles start out in the first paragraph supporting the headline then quickly devolves into a support article for a leftist position.

Anyone else noticing this?? Seems like a drudge event happening there…

phineas gage

You are spot on. The Drudge comparison is apt (although rumor is that Drudge sold the site and signed a non-disclosure).

Once the leader is gone, in this case Andrew Breitbart, the organization begins to fall apart.


Yeah, it really does amaze me that since Trump, many more ‘trusted’ people and sites have joined the dark side than have come over to the right. Drudge, FOX News, Coulter…, who is next? Hannity? Rush? Just kidding, but I don’t see any of the supposed ‘objective’ “news” organizations coming to our side which is weird when one considers a real ratings bonanza for more outlets like OANN.

It can only mean that they are all in the tank to GS and China etc., and they are being well funded to keep their (left’s) extreme message going even when fewer and fewer people are actually listening or watching. There is no way any sort of for profit business model supports this trend and the near consistent move to the hard left.

As Dave has repeatedly said there has to be some way to force these media outlets from constantly spouting outright lies.

What happens when you get to 100%? Unlike the guitar in Spinal Tap that ‘goes to 11’, there is nothing left after that. Which means the media propaganda push is reaching hysterical top end saturation.

What usually follows is tuning out (in physiology we call it adaptation). I can only surmise that they have ramped it this high because they are not getting what they want. They are now looking simply ridiculous, and that invites scorn. It also means state politicians are less likely to cave than before.

The media have screwed up in an all-too-predictable way in the age of Trump. They cannot control themselves and they push too far.

Well, I was way off base with my Sessions prediction–I said it would be close because of his long history in Alabama, and it was anything but. Here’s hoping that Tuberville, assuming he defeats the Democrat incumbent as expected, does not turn into a RINO in DC. That is the last thing we need from Alabama, of all places.

So it closes the book on Sessions political career. He is going out a somewhat sad, tragic figure. It didn’t have to be this way, but he did it to himself.



I would like to hope that Tuberville rewards Trump’s support with loyalty since arguably he would not have beaten Sessions without Trump’s endorsement. I am not (and never have) asking Tuberville, or any politician, to be a Trump sycophant, I just want fair and honest conservative political representation for a conservative state. AL is a deep Red State, it should have conservative representation, unlike the McLames and Grahamnestys of Utah and South Carolina.

We in TN have a slightly different situation in our August Primary.

Trump has endorsed the former ambassador to Japan and businessman Bill Hagerty and he is being opposed by a well funded outsider trauma surgeon Dr. Manny Sethi. Unlike Sessions, Hagerty is the apparent insider candidate, and has had Trump’s strong endorsement for over a year to replace the (thankfully) retiring Lament Alexander (RINO) TN who is 80 years old.

While I really want to appreciate Trump’s endorsed candidate, however, so many of his picks and appointments have been real lemons. It is a real dilemma for many conservatives. I’m going to vote for the ‘outsider’ because I want outsiders to serve in DC. Campaign propaganda commercials don’t normally sway me, but Hagerty’s commercials just seem too canned – rustic Tennessean walking through a farm with a rifle on his shoulder – seems to be trying to be too much like us. Remember Lurch in camo going to a store in Ohio saying “Can I get me a huntin’ license here?” in 2004. That is how Trump’s pick strikes me. He says all the right things: pro life, pro conservatives judges, and only mentions Kavanaugh (not Gorsuch) for the SC, and pro 2A, etc..

Dr. Sethi’s commercials just seem more real and genuine, and many of my friends whose opinions I respect are all in for the outsider Dr. Therefore, I am voting for Dr. Manny Sethi.

My only fear of ‘outsiders’ is they have no real record. In 2018 there was a four way race in the the GOP governor primary as our former Governor (RINO) Haslam was term limited. The eventual winner was ‘outsider’ businessman Bill Lee, who faced the sitting Assembly leader, a sitting congresswoman who was a former state senator and rode the TEA Party wave to victory in 2010, but proved to be a Boehner buddy, and the fourth choice was a Haslam Hack who did his best to hide that fact. Lee easily won the general, but has been a mediocre (IMO) governor. Not terrible, but not like Noem (SD), Kemp (GA), or DeSantis (FL).

I hope the Tennesseans who read this add some commentary here; I’d like their informed perspective.

Thanks for the TN info. I think Trump has made some mistakes with admin picks and endorsements because he has had a very steep learning curve as a businessman coming into the cutthroat world of national politics.
