and irascible head groundskeeper at the Policy Werkes is David Blaska, former has-been, 33-year card-carrying RINO, recovering know-it-all journalist. Holds the record for banishment on the NextDoor social media app. Aging gracelessly at Stately Blaska Manor on the SW side of Madison WI, the Emerald City.

Why Mark Pocan, D-Madison, voted against the debt limit deal
“Forget the debt ceiling. The Biden-McCarthy compromise is a big deal because it is a spending compromise. An important provision of the deal is that if, by the end of the year, the House and Senate haven’t passed 12 appropriations bills (the long-forgotten way budgeting is supposed to work), all discretionary spending would become subject to an automatic 1% cut. This is what is known as a “sequester.” A sequester is to Democrats what garlic is to vampires. …
“The truth today is this: The modern Democratic Party — the party of Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and the House Squad — won’t cut or slow spending for any existing federal program, ever. Now, Mr. McCarthy’s negotiators have managed to create a wedge against the left’s massive opposition to spending reforms.”
— Daniel Henninger, Wall Street Journal.
It is to laugh
“Clarence Thomas, resign or be impeached”
Like Kevin McCarthy’s House of Reps is going to impeach Justice Thomas! (!!!) 😛

Question of the Day
What ‘Deep State’?
Rachael Rollins, the US attorney for Massachusetts, leaked sensitive Justice Department information to a journalist in an effort to influence a local election, lied to investigators and improperly attended a fundraiser with Jill Biden, according to two critical federal reports released Wednesday. (More here.)
How can anyone take them seriously?
Charles C.W. Cooke asks at National Review.
“Rachel Maddow made a career out of spreading lunatic conspiracy theories on MSNBC, as did Chris Hayes and Nicolle Wallace (who is still, today, rejecting all evidence that contradicts her fever dream). Adam Schiff lied relentlessly from his official perch on the United States House Committee on Foreign Affairs, and is now gearing up to run for the Senate.”
I just took Tucker to task on my blog for spreading vaccine disinformation. That must be why he was booted!! I take credit!!
I watched Carlson occasionally, particularly when he was questioning the dominant narrative on the jab. I was very happy to see someone willing to stick their neck out for what has generally proven to be accurate information on the subject.

NOW it’s clear; good one!
Two dishonest media hucksters down, only about 374 to go. At least Tucker wasn’t afraid to call out the fanatical transgender cultists/groomers.

And After Further Review, The BiPolar bares** Still Suck!
Will the great awakening in media continue with the ousting of the likes Joy Reid, Al Sharpton, Joe Scarborough and his wife Mika, etc.?
Wouldn’t THAT be something!
Anywho, to paraphrase Charlie from Death Of A Salesman: A Righty Is Got To Dream, Boy. It Comes With The Territory.
I wish we could also expand it to Colbert, Kimmel, Noah, Oliver, Bee, and others who are bastardizing political discourse for audiences of millions. Unfortunately, degenerate clowns like them and the verbal sewage they spew are the price of free speech and capitalism.
Somewhat unrelated but what happened to The Drudge Report? I’ve seen it drifting leftward over the last couple of years but between TDS, Musk Derrangement Syndrome and anti-Fox position, it’s all but unreadable now.
Musk was a mere big media curiosity until he made his political views known, which were counter to theirs. Then they looked for every last opportunity to slime and berate him. No such vitriol toward his wealth equal but political opposite Zuckerberg though, even though his metaverse experiment has lost Meta/Facebook $300B in market value and cost thousands their jobs.
Indeed. Not to mention the $400 million in Zuckerbucks. I wonder what the media would say if Musk donated the same amount but towards right-leaning candidates/organizations?!
