Today I went to breakfast with DaWife and ended up in front sitting right in front of the TV with the local news on. I don’t do a lot these days. I mentioned yesterday that the March for Life was not newsworthy to the MSM and neither was it for the local Boston news despite many from Massachusetts who traveled there, however an infinitely smaller march in Madison WI in support of abortion was important enough to be covered with film.

For some perspective here is a time lapse of the March For Life this weekend.

I don’t miss local news, I don’t even bother with them for sports anymore, just not trustworthy.


Speaking of things not newsworthy to the local station A member of congress from Massachusetts, and not just any member the #2 Democrat in the house Katherine Clark the house minority whip had her son/daughter/whatever arrested yesterday for assaulting a police officer during Antifa event in Boston Yesterday.

Hey a local member of congress in a leadership position with a kid who is arrested for assaulting a cop in Boston with ANTIFA, that’s GOT to be newsworthy for a Boston station so I watched for it while I was eating breakfast.

Not a mention w

If she had an “R” after her name rather than a “D” it would be THE story trumping even the winter storm.


I did notice that there was a scroll on the screen which mentioned the Monterey Park Shooting. The left had a narrative all in play until the shooter turned out to be an Asian Male and the crime driven by a domestic dispute between a Husband and Wife.

One that became apparent the story suddenly and unsurprisingly became unnewsworthy for the national media. I guess the people who do the crawl for the station didn’t get the updated memo.


There is a lot I can say about the credibility of the MSM but when it comes to discrediting them they do a much better job than I could ever do myself, to wit:

Nothing says “peaceful protest” like a burning police car. David Limbaugh (Rush’s Brother) nails it:

Not if it clashes with the narrative they can’t.


For all the media’s spin on events, dishonest reporting, censorship and pushing narratives, one thing remains true. Reality doesn’t care what the narrative is as demonstrated by this story out of Seattle:

How bad has the rampant crime, spiraling homeless problem, and general dystopian appearance of Seattle, Washington gotten lately? Apparently, the conditions are bad enough that Nike has chosen to permanently shut down its flagship store in the city after 26 years in operation, which it did on Friday. At the same time, Regal Cinemas announced that it would not be renewing its lease on its Meridian 16 multiplex. Neither company has put out an official statement as to their reasons for leaving, but it’s pretty obvious to the residents of the city. Seattle has simply become unlivable over the past couple of years. Between the criminals, the illegal migrants, and the homeless (who are dying in record numbers), the city is almost unrecognizable. 

You can spin violent leftists as the summer of love, you can pretend that there is not problem and the national media can say things are overblown all they want, but in the end business is business and Nike and Regal Cinemas have decided that Seattle is no place for theirs.

Well it’s been 24 hours since the first part of Mia Cathell’s Town Hall’s story about the Zulock gay pedophile ring case out of Georgia:

LGBTQ-pride paraphernalia littered the family’s extravagantly furnished four-bedroom, five-bathroom house (plus a packed three-car garage), including a rainbow Mickey Mouse stuffed animal placed atop a “Love Above All” pillow on the foyer’s loveseat, where Zachary was swarmed by the SWAT team, and a neon “Love is Love” sign that adorned the kitchen’s granite countertop.

And it’s been 24 hours since my post noting the lack of interest in the story not only on the national level (in accordance with DaTechGuy’s 3rd law of Media Outrage) but even on the local level

 it seems that this is not considered all that newsworthy on the local level. If you do a search of the Atlanta Journal Constitution for the name “Zulock” you will find it comes back with no results. (As a control I did a search for “Trump” on the same page and my cup overflowith.)

If fact if you do a duck duck go search for Zulock under “news” the only result under “News” for the name “Zulock” in Duck Duck go is a story in the Walton Tribune saying they are due back in court.

That post has been one of the most popular posts on this site in a while as it spread through Twitter like wildfire (something that didn’t happen much in the pre-musk days for some reason).

Well Mia Cathell is back for part 2 of her series and it doesn’t get any more pleasant:

Law enforcement learned from Lawless there was “a secondary suspect” “producing homemade child sexual abuse material with at least one adopted child who lived in the home with the perpetrator,” Walton County Sheriff’s Office wrote in a press release.

Lawless allegedly met Zachary through a mutual contact named “Blake” on Grindr, an LGBTQ hook-up app, and received “numerous” Snapchat messages from Zachary saying, “I’m going to f*ck my son tonight,” and to “stand by” for graphic visuals of the father raping his child. According to what Lawless told police, Zachary also invited Lawless “multiple times” to engage in sexual acts with him and his two adopted boys, but Lawless denied having had any physical contact with the Zulock boys.

But as to the question of Federal Charges as per the title of the piece: Will This LGBTQ Pedophile Ring Face Federal Charges?

Could the Zulock couple face federal charges? How far-reaching is the pedophile ring and will other members be unmasked?

“We decline to comment,” a public affairs officer in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Georgia replied when Townhall inquired if the U.S. Department of Justice has any interest in investigating and prosecuting a federal case against the Zulock co-defendants. Last year, Georgia’s DOJ office pursued a handful of child sex crimes-related cases in its jurisdiction.

Well in fairness, as the story notes the DOJ during the Joe Biden era has other priorities…

(As Townhall previously reported, the Biden administration’s DOJ is preoccupied with targeting peaceful pro-life leaders and rounding up elderly Christian preachers who stand up for innocent unborn life. One father, who protested outside of an abortion clinic in Georgia’s northwest neighbor Tennessee, was arrested at home by a swarm of armed FBI agents in front of his children.)

In fairness a no comment doesn’t mean no action but with the number of out of state trips this “family” took as far away as Louisiana and Illinois the potential for Federal Charges remains.

But for the purposes of this piece I wondered if Town Hall’s running of the story resulted in any change to the search results that I had done yesterday, so I repeated them today and added a search on Yahoo for good measure.

The result from the Atlanta Journal Constitution, from Google, from duck duck go, exactly the same as yesterday, a whole lot of nothing going on and nothing based on yesterday’s Town Hall story.

Oh and Yahoo, The only result was a single link to a WSBTV.com story from five months ago.

The Blackout is continuing bigger and better than ever, the only question left is will it remain so when all four parts of Cathell’s series is released.

I wouldn’t bet against it.

Once upon a time there was a gay couple that adopted sons and the media absolutely loved them in factr the Zulocks were as Town Hall points out were

darlings of the LGBTQ media. They were part of an anti-gay hate campaign promoting “#NOH8,” and Out magazine, which holds the nation’s highest circulation among LGBTQ monthly publications, has repeatedly asked them if its website’s Pride page can feature their photos taken at the Atlanta Pride Parade.

It turns out they were apparently something else using their adopted sons as sexual playthings:

According to a copy of the 17-count indictment Townhall has obtained, the adoptive dads allegedly performed oral sex on both boys, forced the children to perform oral sex on them, and anally raped their sons. In at least one instance, the anal rape injured the older Zulock child, who just turned 11-years-old in mid-December. Court records indicate that the child sexual abuse stretches back to as early as late 2019 and intensified in January 2021, March 2021, and December 2021, as the offense dates are listed.

You would think it doesn’t get any worse than that. You’d be wrong:

An updated criminal affidavit says the child sexual abuse was filmed by William’s husband Zachary, “with whom he routinely engaged in sexually abusive acts” on the boy. Zachary, the household’s breadwinner, confessed to being the cameraman, and authorities allegedly found a folder on his cell phone—labeled “US”—that contained videos of William sexually abusing the child.

very wrong:

The indictment also charges the Zulock co-defendants with soliciting two other men, through the use of popular social media platforms, in the Greater Atlanta metropolitan region to “perform an act of prostitution” with their child that suffered physical injuries from being brutally raped. Townhall is the first to publicly identify these two alleged members of a pedophile ring in the heart of the Peach State: 27-year-old Hunter Clay Lawless and 25-year-old Luis Armando Vizcarro-Sanchez, both of Loganville.

Now you might think that a pair of gay men using their adopted sons as sexual playthings, making gay porn with them and pimping them out to others just might be newsworthy but also that would violate DaTechGuy’s 3rd law of Media Outrage which declares:

The MSM’s elevation and continued classification of any story as Nationally Newsworthy rather than only of local interest is in direct correlation to said story’s current ability to affirm any current Democrat/Liberal/Media meme/talking point, particularly on the subject of race or sexuality.

At least it would be but it seems that this is not considered all that newsworthy on the local level. If you do a search of the Atlanta Journal Constitution for the name “Zulock” you will find it comes back with no results. (As a control I did a search for “Trump” on the same page and my cup overflowith.)

If fact if you do a duck duck go search for Zulock under “news” the only result under “News” for the name “Zulock” in Duck Duck go is a story in the Walton Tribune saying they are due back in court.

Of course that’s Duck Duck Go. What about Google, the biggest search engine in the world? Well do a google search of “jacoby zulock” one of the suspects in the case and you will get a whopping 12 results, only half of them in English. The top result being the Walton Tribune story, three of them being Town Hall posts on the subject one being a short WGAU radio post from Aug 8th and the other a daily beast post from the same day linking to a WSBTV story from the same day

Now you might think a ring producing and distributing child porn and pimping out kids with enough cameras in a house to make Jeffrey Epstein proud might be a story that would gather eyeballs, but when the narrative is all, the last thing the media wants is this story to be in front of any people at all.

#unexpectedly of course

Update: Can’t believe I missed the link to the base townhall piece, Now at the top. Oh and part 2 of the four part series from Townhall is now out, and as as the Talking Heads would put it, the coverage or lack thereof is same as it ever was

One factor in the use of the government as a weapon against the Political foes of the left that isn’t discussed is that this is the fruit of the Obama years.

Obama was always a cheap Chicago pol and he used his high position to transform the federal government and the system into the Chicago way where government is used to enrich friends and punish enemies.

Till those Obama types are purged we’re not going to see things change.


In his famous appearance on Phil Donahue’s show Milton Freeman when questioned by Donahue on the excesses of capitalism replied: “just tell me where in the world you find these angels who are going to organize society for us?” This is a basic principle of life that people tend of act in their own self interest. And since most people aren’t angels particularly in government the best way to create ethical behavior is to make such behavior profitable.

That’s really the secret, if you make the rewards of honorable behavior strong enough then the risks of unethical behavior are not worthwhile.


CBS has suddenly decided that the Hunter Biden laptop stuff is real.

This in my opinion is a definite signal that they have decided than in a possible match with Trump in 2024 Joe Biden in expendable.

The real question is will Biden fight (Jill that is) I don’t think Joe has much fight in him, but he does know where the bodies are.


The moment I heard that Nancy Pelosi was dropping herself from the leadership but staying in congress all I could think of was the movie Casino with Hakeem Jeffries playing the role of Phillip Green. I suspect that the new leadership will not make any move that is not approved by Nancy as she, like Biden knows where the bodies are buried.

Personally I think the only reason for this is to remove Pelosi and a fundraising meme for the GOP.


Finally it’s starting to get cold and the heat has been on in the house. That means that the first oil delivery of the new Biden season is coming for me and a lot of other folks.

I get about 200 gallons per delivery which is going to likely run over $1000 as opposed to the $500-$600 that it would have in the Trump years.

If this doesn’t change the voting patterns of folks in New England nothing will.
