In Tyrie Nichols the MSM/Left has finally found a case of black on black violence that they find newsworthy enough to publicly disapprove of


There are a lot of fine blogs and substack accounts out there worth making a free or cash subscription to, (I humbly suggest considering mine as I have writers to pay) but the best case I’ve seen made by someone to hit the button lately has come from Don Surber this morning with his spectacular piece on the better of the John Kennedys who served in the Senate:

  • “You will never win—never—the uber-woke sweepstakes. I understand that the pressure to run that race is fierce. You will never win it. Nothing you do will ever be enough. The uber-woke people in positions of power in this town think America was evil when it was founded and it’s even more evil today. You’re not going to convince them otherwise.”

He spoke that truth to power at a hearing on September 22, 2017, to Charles W. Scharf of Wells Fargo & Company, Brian Thomas Moynihan of Bank of America, Jamie Dimon of JPMorgan Chase & Co., Jane Fraser of Citigroup, William H. Rogers Jr. of Truist Financial Corporation, Andy Cecere of U.S. Bancorp and William S. Demchak of PNC Financial Services Group.

If that line alone doesn’t get you loving Senator Kennedy nothing will and if this piece doesn’t get you to subscribe to Mr. Surber’s substack nothing will


This week Project Veritas put out what was likely the single most important video it ever did, catching a Pfizer exec going on about mutating the COVID etc. It’s the type of expose that can change the narrative.

Within two days Youtube banned the video and gave him a strike. It “violated their guidelines” not because it was false, but because it was true.

This is going to cost people their lives.

One must under the rules of Christianity love your enemies but as Youtube is a corporation and not a person I don’t think I’m violating rules by awaiting the day of the company’s fall with some anticipation.

Remember once upon a time AOL ruled the roost too.


Went to the local comic store today to pick up Groo and Usagi Yojimbo. The only two comics I still read new. Their creators eighty five year old Sergio Argones (Groo) and sixty nine year old Stan Sakai (Usagi) have been doing their respective two comics for over 45 years (Sakai actually got his start lettering Groo and still does). I don’t go there much as there is a large sign on the door nothing CDC mask recommendations and suggesting people wear them (when I went yesterday nobody had one on) which turns me off but there was one thing worth noting.

Back in the 1980’s when I owned a comic store there were a couple of reprint series out there (Marvel Tales immediately comes to mind) but today it seems every third comic featured is a reprint of a comic from the 60’s or 80’s or 90’s.

Comic stores have apparently figured out they need something other than woke to sustain a business.

Still highly recommend both Groo & Usagi


Finally Yesterday I was watching an old Cary Grant Movie Father Goose (1964) a comedy about a drunken coast watcher who gets stuck with a 30 something year old woman and a bunch of kids from a girls school.

It’s a quaint movie but I don’t recommend watching it right after watched Mark Felton’s audio about the treatment of captive women by the Japanese in World War 2.

The movie gets very serious when you consider what happens if they’re caught.

This is huge:

A coalition of outspoken critics and skeptics of the mainstream narratives on COVID-19 has brought an antitrust lawsuit against some of the world’s largest news organizations, accusing them of working in collaboration to suppress dissenting voices surrounding the pandemic.

This is at the Zerohedge (via Insty) The story continues:

“By their own admission, members of the TNI have agreed to work together, and have in fact worked together, to exclude from the world’s dominant internet platforms rival news publishers who engage in reporting that challenges and competes with TNI members’ reporting on certain issues relating to COVID-19 and U.S. politics,” the complaint reads.

The revelations of the Twitterfiles combined with the continuing number of “unexpected” and “excess” deaths particularly among the young and healthy are really going to drive this suit.

When you see parents outside the courtroom with pictures of their dead kids that’s going to have an impact and if this suit succeeds the class action suits that will follow are going to be tremendous, not only by families of the deceased and the crippled but by those who have lost jobs and livelihoods because of the false narratives advanced and the suppression of truth.

I imagine there are lawyers licking their chops at the thought of it. Bezos has very deep pockets.

Don Ward: Well, it happened so quick, 3 guys won; I didn’t have a chance…

Now that Damar Hamlin is apparently out of danger for his life let’s talk about what happened.

I work Monday nights and was completely unaware of what had happened to Damar Hamlin until my boss told me during a break. Having not seen what happened I was:

  1. Shocked the game had not continued, after all when Patriots receiver Daryll Stingley was paralyzed by a hit in my youth he was carted off the play and the game continued (apparently Hamlin expected the same as it’s reported the 1st thing he asked when regaining consciousness was “Did we win?”.
  2. Presumed that the hit of Hamlin must have been a whopper if it made him drop like that.

So when I got home I went straight to youtube to view the hit. As I can no longer log in due to my ban I assumed I would not have to search for it as it would be promoted as one of the most popular viewed videos out there. Instead the first video I saw pushed was this one.

Three things hit me about this rather interesting video right away.

  1. The timing. While the video was interesting and informative what struck me about it was the time was not so much what was in it but when it went up. The video is very professional yet it was up within 90 minutes of the hit. Now granted that if you were looking to maximize exposure for your channel you would want to take advantage of the situation but to have a video this professional up that fast was, shall we say, impressive.
  2. Practically the first words out of his mouth was emphasizes “this has nothing to do with a vaccine” Something that he made it a point to stress a 2nd time at the end of the video. It was almost as if there was an imperative for that to be stressed before anybody saw anything else.
  3. The fact that this video was being promoted OVER VIDOES OF THE ACTUAL HIT. You would think that people would be searching for the hit first but it was as if Youtube was making it a point to make sure people saw this video before they saw the hit itself

Given what we’ve seen and learned of in terms of organized censorship I found all these things suspicious. I became more suspicious when I saw the hit in real time because my reaction was the same as every single other person I’ve talked to: that didn’t seem like much of a hit to cause this.

That caused me to make a supposition.

It’s one thing to post stories about people having sudden reactions and even death because of the vaccine on a blog that gets a few hundred hits a day or even a site that gets millions, or with a hashtag #suddendeaths on the now less censored twitter and to see polls where a quarter of the population know someone who had had a bad reaction to the vaccine or even to be familiar with the VARES data. That can and to a large degree has been “contained” by those who wish it.

It’s quite another thing for a young professional athlete in the prime of his life and in peak physical condition to suddenly drop after a hit that seemed like nothing special during a game on one of the most watched television shows of the week (Monday Night Football) in the middle of a critical game in the most popular sport in the US in front of tens of millions of people. This is something that would get hundreds of millions of people talking.

For that you need damage control STAT! Something like say a video by a medical professional done quickly that quickly denies anything to do with the vaccine and provides an alternate credible explanation STAT!

The next day on my drive into work one of the sports shows I listen to during the drive had an ex player on wondering why we don’t see this happen more often if this kind of hit can cause it, which was just what I had been saying to the folks I was driving in with before he did.

And that when the math kicked into my head. I don’t claim to be a Doctor or a medical person at all, but ‘ve always been a numbers guy and this got my wheels turning.

The doctor in the video said that for a hit to have this result it would have to take place within a few milliseconds of that particular moment in the heart cycle. Now a person not thinking of the math upon hearing this might consider this a tiny window, particularly if they think a millisecond means a millionth of a second rather than a thousandth of a second. Even a few thousandths of a second doesn’t seem like much of a window until you remember that this is a few thousands of a second during each heartbeat.

Lets do the math:

At a heart rate of 100 beats a minute (I use that considering physical activity of a game boosted by the adrenal excitement of a play) that means that the .003 to .005 millisecond window that the doctor says this hit has to take place during to cause this effect takes place between .3 and .5 of a second every minute for every player there.

Now again that doesn’t seem like much 1/3 to 1/2 of a second window during a minute that comes out to a 1/120 to 1/300 chance per minute of a hit being within that window each minute.

But that when it gets interesting.

a football game is 60 minutes unless there is overtime so let’s make some presumptions

Let’s presume an average of 120 plays in a game and at least one hit on a player per play that’s 120 hits per game

(Yes I know there are kneel down plays and out of bounds plays but there are also many overtime games and two minutes offenses where plays are done quickly plus one hit per play is actually pretty low to anyone who has every watched football).

that’s 120 hits per game. Or 120 chances for a hit to be within that 1/120 or 1/300 window PER game.

there are 32 teams in the NFL. On a week where every team is playing that’s 16 games each with 120 hits.

16 games x 120 hits = 1920 hits

Additionally not counting the playoffs each team plays a 17 game schedule with 2 preseason games that’s 19 games per year

1920 hits x 19 games in a season = 36,480 hits per season

Under the current system there are 6 playoff games the 1st week of the playoffs, 4 games the second week, 2 games the third and then the superbowl. That’s an additional 13 games at 120 hits per game per season..

13 playoff games x 120 hits = 1,560 playoff hits

added to our previous result

36,480 hits + 1,560 hits = 38,040 hits per season

of course two years ago the nfl played only a 16 game schedule but with 4 preseason games so before 2022 the base figure before the playoffs would be

1920 hits x 20 games (pre 2022) = 38,400 hits

of course there were two less playoff games

11 games x 120 hits = 1,320 pre 2022 playoff hits

meaning the total number of hits in a season would come to

38,400 + 1,320 = 39,720 total hits in a season (pre 2022)

So let’s take the doctor’s own estimate of the time during which the Commotio cordis risk of heart failure being “within milliseconds of the cycle” of a heartbeat that 1/120th of a minute to 1/300th of a minute and apply the number of hits in a season to it for this season and last season

(1/120 of a second window per minute) x 38,040 hits = 317 hits during the danger window

and to be fair let’s also do the math on the low end

(1/300 of a second windows per minute ) x 38,040 hits = 126.8 hits during the danger window

That means that in each NFL season there are between 126 and 317 hits that take place within that window. But of course the doctor said it has to be to the right which makes this a rather unique event, unless you consider that we haven’t seen this before in the 21st century. Let’s go back to the math.

During the 20th century We’ve had two NFL seasons with the current schedule meaning with the number times that a hit has taken place during the right moment are:

2 seasons x 317 hits in the danger window =

634 hits in the danger window over 2 years

to 2 seasons x 126.8 hits in the window =

253.6 hits in the danger window

and 20 seasons with the old schedule

20 seasons x ( (1/120 odds) x 39,720 hits ) = 6,620 to 20 x ( ( 1/300 ) x 39,720 ) = 2648

Meaning that in the 21th century the number of hits that are timed just right during the danger window to cause what happened to Damar Hamlin were between:

7254 to 2901 hits within the danger window since 2000

So you’re telling me that with 2901 to 7254 chances for this kind of thing to happen over the course of the 22 NFL seasons in the 21st century only one hit was hard enough and in the right place to make this happen?

And again this is the considering the NFL, this doesn’t count college games or high school games or even the Canadian football league. Nor does it count the previous 80 years of the NFL existence. Yet you want me to believe that this was just a freak event this one hit at this time was the only one out of all those game where this happened?

I’ll tell you what. Rather than throwing the sudden death of 38 year old former Purdue and Jacksonville Jaguar’ offensive lineman Uche Nwaneri of sudden heart failure the Friday before the Hamlin hit or the sudden death of 16 year old Ashari Hughes during a flag football the day before Nwaneri’s death (both of them presumably without the benefit of a heavy hit to the chest) in the face of those selling the narrative let’s make a deal.

I’ll ignore the math above and take the official explanation that the Damar Hamlin hit was a million to one or three hundred million to one shot totally unrelated to the vaccine mandates in the NFL as gospel truth, right up until the moment it happens again to another active player.

I’ll tell you one thing, if another active NFL player drops from sudden unexpected heart failure then it will take a lot more than a good youtube video to prevent a class action suit from the players association against the league’s vax mandate, nor will it prevent similar suits from other professional players unions also subject to such rules.

At that point my belief or disbelief will be the least of anyone’s worries.

Update: I didn’t know about Chuck Hughes dying on the field in 71, as I was 8 and the NFL wasn’t anywhere near as big nationally, but John Ruberry saw it, A key note:

Immediately after Hughes’ death, the NFL made it a league rule that there must be an ambulance at all games. Life-saving protocols have since been added by the NFL–each team is required to have an Emergency Action Plan, which was activated after Hamlin’s collapse. Generally, there are over two dozen doctors of various specialties at each NFL game. 

The EAP probably saved Hamlin’s life.

Update 2: Welcome Hotair headline readers, take a look around and if you like what you see please consider hitting DaTipJar keep our writers paid and our costs covered.

Mac Jones can’t win.

Last week he was pilloried by Patriots greats on the air for not doing all he could to stop Las Vegas (had to stop myself from typing “Oakland”) from scoring on that last play that cost New England a game they should have won.

Now a week late he makes a desperate attempt to stop Germaine Pratt from scoring a touchdown on a recovered fumble that if not for the Dolphins falling apart might have ended their playoff hopes and he’s attacked for it and fined by the NFL.

It may or may not be fair but I think that Mac is in a no-win position. He can’t be Brady and will never be Brady.

At least the Redsox Went from the greatest hitter of all time (Williams), to an all time great HOF (Yaz) to a power hitting Hall of Famer (Rice) to a pretty good outfielder (Greenwell) over 25 years easing the blow. No such luck for spoiled Pats fans.


There was a time before Tom Brady when the Redsox ruled this town. Even in the days of Russell, Havlicek and Bird it was a baseball town. Tom Brady made the difference and while David Ortiz kept the flame alive Brady’s timeless success wrenched the city away from the bats and balls and delivered it to the pigskin.

Right now the Patriots are in the lowest point that they’ve been and if the Red Sox ownership was smart they would take this moment to invest heavily to grab back the hearts of the fans from the gridiron and back to the diamond.

The current strategy may be penny wise but it’s pound foolish. The Pats are giving the Sox a huge opening which a wise ownership should drive right through.

However I suspect they are not all that wise.


Just four years ago you didn’t have stories of people “dying suddenly” at young ages. Now it’s so common that if a week passes without such an event it’s a miracle.

The worst of it is that now we have more studies from every inhabited continent that show Ivermectin (.02 a pill) to be effective against COVID. as noted “100% of these have shown positive results.” at the same time the Twitter files have revealed a concerted effort to suppress information and/or opinions from medical experts contrary to the sanctioned positions of the Biden Administration.

These people and those who submitted to their will have a lot of bodies to answer for and they are very lucky that it is no longer considered fashionable for those who have had husbands ,wives, children and parents die from their despicable acts to take personal revenge. It it was, none of those bastards would last a week.


It has been less than twenty years since the Massachusetts Supreme Court by a 4-3 vote legalized gay marriage in the state and then governor Mitt Romney did all he could to keep it off the ballot in order to advance his presidential ambitions.

Now twenty years later we see the results as summarized in a single tweet

All this is by design, the next generation of Jeffrey Epstien’s and the next generation of Prince Andrews and the like who they will serve need to get their fodder from somewhere.

Incidentally I suspect there are more than a few Epsteins out there still serving the same customer base that Ms. Maxwell keeps in her head. Jeffrey just happens to be the one that was caught which makes him the exception.


Finally the single most significant story of the day is likely this one. The drone war in Ukraine and Russia:

In interviews in the United States, Europe and the Middle East, a range of intelligence, military and national security officials have described an expanding U.S. program that aims to choke off Iran’s ability to manufacture the drones, make it harder for the Russians to launch the unmanned “kamikaze” aircraft and — if all else fails — to provide the Ukrainians with the defenses necessary to shoot them out of the sky.

The shift to drones by both sides is a incredibly significant change to the war. The story continues

In fact, one of the Iranian companies named by Britain, France and Germany as a key manufacturer of one of the two types of drones being bought by the Russians, Qods Aviation, has appeared for years on the United Nations’ lists of suppliers to Iran’s nuclear and missile programs. The company, which is owned by Iran’s military, has expanded its line of drones despite waves of sanctions.

The administration’s scramble to deal with the Iranian-supplied drones comes at a significant moment in the war, just as Ukraine is using its own drones to strike deep into Russia, including an attack this week on a base housing some of the country’s strategic bombers.

The widespread use of drones in warfare and the Islamic state of Iran’s ability to produce “Kamikaze” drones should be of great worry to us as that is likely going to be the next tool of international terrorism and it goes without saying the next phase of warfare in general. After all consider the cost of maintaining a single destroyer vs the cost of a drone that can be programed to hit a specific geographical location.

If that doesn’t put a shudder in your spine nothing will.
