We’ve Ditched Twitter – and Glad to have Done It

Looking at the Flyover page, you may have noticed that there are headers for Twitter threads for Rob and myself. The feeds are gone. We both quit Twitter. Good riddance.

In my case, I ended my account when oddball Jack Dorsey cancelled President Trump’s account. That was the last straw. Prior to that, beginning in July 2020, my 15,500 thousand-strong account was deboosted by Twitter. I wasn’t being singled out, though.

Will the Pentagon’s “UAP” Report Shake our World?

Sometime in late June or early July, the Pentagon is mandated to release a report on the astonishing subject of “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP),” which is the latest terminology for UFOs – “Unidentified Flying Objects.” The report is expected to be a compendium of declassified information on the topic. Will the report prove a bombshell or a bust? That all depends on how forthcoming Uncle Sam is. In a critical sense, the Pentagon, via recent declarations, has already dropped a bombshell. It acknowledges that UAPs are the real deal. Does a bigger bombshell await?

Liz Cheney’s Pratfall

By J Robert Smith

On Wednesday morning by a voice vote, U.S. House Republicans ousted the odious Liz Cheney from her leadership position. Republicans really had no choice. Cheney’s unconcealed loathing for Donald Trump and her notorious vote to impeach him back in January played very poorly with the party’s base voters, who remain intensely loyal to the ex-president. When is backstabbing regarded by anybody as a stellar quality?

Trump’s Out at Facebook. Let’s Stop Chasing Big Tech Platforms

The Facebook Oversight Board ruled earlier today that former president Donald Trump is gone from its platform – for good, it appears. Throw in Instagram.

The statement released by the Board is a bunch high-minded sounding goop. Read the decision here. Bottom-line: Banishing Trump when he was president was a powerplay. Keeping Trump off Zuckerberg’s platforms is – yes, you guessed it – a powerplay. It’s a powerplay premised on a Big Lie.

The Inflation Bombs are Falling

Here’s the line coming from the very big brains out of DC and Wall Street: Inflation worries are… inflated. The economy is rebounding – in fact, beginning to surge (thanks to former President Donald Trump’s economic recovery policies, but don’t expect the establishment to give him any props). Hence, with demand climbing, supply chains are being hard-pressed. Higher demand + crimped supply = higher costs. But, no worries, that’s only a short-term phenomenon. Once supply catches up to – or exceeds – demand, costs will level off and decline.

Biden Threatens to Cancel July 4: Celebrate it Anyway

Updated: Apr 24

Joe Biden’s string pullers in the White House are tenacious in trying to punish us for wanting to exercise our freedoms as Americans. Yesterday, their marionette (none other than the oft befuddled Joe Biden) threatened to deprive us bad boys, girls, and trans of July 4 celebrations this summer if we don’t knuckle under and be vaccinated.

Springtime for Mask Tyranny

If you live in a red state – Florida, Texas, and Mississippi are on my mind – where your governor has decided that lockdowns (even partial) and mask mandates are pretty much wastes of times, count yourself lucky. If you live in a blue state – oh, say, New York, Pennsylvania, California, New Jersey – with a petty tyrant for governor, an inert or rubber-stamp legislature, and courts controlled by make-the-law-up Democrat judges, you’re still being forced to knuckle under, to one degree or another.

2020 Election Fraud is a Fact

Well, yes, it happened, and fraud expert Jay Valentine remains hot on the trail. Some folks may say, “Does last year’s elections fraud matter now? Trump was deposed. Biden is in the White House. Democrats, the left, and plutocrats are trying to destroy our freedoms, ripping apart our social fabric, and wrecking the economy. Shouldn’t all that be our focus?”

Did Biden’s News Conference Put His Competence Issue to Rest?


By  J Robert Smith

Joe Biden’s much anticipated news conference was held Thursday afternoon. Why was it much anticipated? Because Biden is into three months in the White House and hasn’t had a presser prior to yesterday’s event. By contrast, President Trump made himself available to the media routinely and without reservations. He sparred and battled with the nitwits who makeup today’s uber-biased – yet gravitas-free – press corp. That’s what a real leader does.

When a Handful of Crises Isn’t Enough For Joe Biden’s Cabal

This article originally appeared at American Thinker.


The Biden administration has enjoyed no honeymoon. The cabal that addled Joe Biden fronts really didn’t want one. Bridge-building, comity, and compromise are passé. What Ron Klain, Susan Rice, and a knot of plutocrats and “progressives” who pull Joe’s strings want are crises. Manufactured crises are just as good as the real deals. They’re opportunities not to be wasted.
