1.Sri Lanka: Protesters Enter President’s House
NY Times – The demonstrators are demanding the resignation of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, whom they accuse of running the island nation’s economy into the ground through corruption and mismanagement.

Protesters in Sri Lanka entered the president’s residence and his office on Saturday, as thousands descended on the capital, Colombo, to register their growing fury over his government’s inability to address a crippling economic crisis.

The protesters are demanding the resignation of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, whose family has dominated politics in Sri Lanka for much of the past two decades, accusing him of running the island nation’s economy into the ground through corruption and mismanagement.

Sri Lanka has run out of foreign-exchange reserves for imports of essential items like fuel and medicine, and the United Nations has warned that more than a quarter of Sri Lanka’s 21 million people are at risk of food shortages.

DML: The whereabouts of the president is unclear according to the Times. But when they find him, things are likely to get ugly.

2.Police arrest two people for lighting man on fire
Fox News – A man and woman have been arrested in California after another man was allegedly lit on fire, according to police.

Patricia Castillo, 48, and Leonard Hawkins, 43, are facing charges of attempted murder, arson and conspiracy, the Sanger Police Department wrote on Facebook.

Police responded to an incident regarding an injured person at about 9:15 p.m. PT on Thursday at a park in Sanger, California in Fresno County. Officers spoke to a man who had suffered severe burns when they arrived at the scene. The man said a woman had lit him on fire.

Investigators used video surveillance and witness testimony to identify Castillo and Hawkins.

According to police, Castillo had approached the man and threw a cup of liquid on him. The two then appeared to argue before Castillo sparks a lighter and lights the man on fire.

DML: She looks like a real winner, no? People in California are deranged.

3.Furious mom slams American Airlines for LOSING her daughter
DailyMail – A Georgia mom has slammed American Airlines for losing her 12-year-old daughter when she flew alone from Tennessee to Miami.

Monica Gilliam, 39, a photography professor, blasted the airline after Kimber was not escorted off the plane and disappeared.

The youngster had been flying solo from Chattanooga to Miami last week to see her father for a three-week trip. Her mother had forked out an extra $150 for her to be chaperoned through both airports and wear a badge information cabin crew she was not with an adult. But when she got off the aircraft they simply smiled and waved at her and let her wander around the airport before finally being found by her dad.

It came amid general chaos at airports across the US, with hundreds of flights canceled and thousands delayed over the July 4 holiday.

DML: Amazing. When the airlines want to place masks on two-year-olds, they are right on top of it. But when it comes to truly keeping a kid safe they drop the ball. American Airlines sucks, they are another woke company focused on all the wrong things.

4.Analysis: Twitter has legal edge in deal dispute with Musk
Reuters – Twitter Inc has a strong legal case against Elon Musk walking away from his $44 billion deal to acquire the U.S. social media company but could opt for a renegotiation or settlement instead of a long court fight, according to legal experts.

Delaware courts, where the dispute between the two sides is set to be litigated, have set a high bar for acquirers being allowed to abandon their deals. But target companies often choose the certainty of a renegotiated deal at a lower price or financial compensation rather than a messy court battle that can last for many months, three corporate law professors interviewed by Reuters said.

Musk’s main claim against Twitter is that the San Francisco-based company breached their deal because it will not share with him enough information to back up its claim that spam or fake accounts constitute less than 5% of its active users. Twitter has stood by this estimate but also said it’s possible the number of these accounts is higher.

DML: Twitter sucks. They lie. They censor.  Example.  Last night I included @Twitter on a tweet about this very subject.  I don’t do a lot with Twitter, but when I did I would have thousands of likes and retweets.  Now they censor me.  Look at the tweet below, it should have thousands of likes and retweets considering I have near 40,000 followers.  As of writing this post here, which is 12 hours after I posted my tweet, I have 4 LIKES.  Clearly, I am censored.

5.NYC Pushes Indoor Mask Advisory for All as ‘Worst’ Omicron Strain Fuels 6th Wave
News4 NY – All five boroughs of New York City are back in the CDC’s high-risk category for COVID community spread as of the agency’s Friday update, a reflection of the increasingly infectious national climate as the “worst version” of omicron yet holds its dominance.

Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx and Staten Island had all been in the CDC high-risk category for the latter half of May and transitioned to medium risk through June as viral rates and hospital admissions associated with that wave ebbed. The relief was short-lived, though, with all five boroughs now in a heightened state of risk.

That means face masks are recommended for everyone indoors and in public settings, regardless of vaccination status — again. It comes as some neighborhoods in Manhattan and Queens are seeing 25% positivity rates (again). City health officials renewed their indoor mask advisory on Friday in light of the updated COVID data.

DML: I told you this would happen, it’s getting close to election time.  Start in NY, carry through to California, get the COVID spreading everywhere in between.  But instead of telling you to boost the immune system, they want you to wear a mask which hurts the immune system according to some doctors.

MY PARTING WORDS:  Boosting the immune system with DML CBD is a powerful thing. And now you can do it for the cheapest price ever.  DML CBD MINTS have always been a popular product for people on a tight budget.  They work great when it comes to boosting the immune system, helping people sleep better, diminishing aches and pains, and curbing the anxiety that hampers so many lives.  Plus, they taste great!  Each bottle consists of 30 mints, each having 15mg of CBD, and it will not break your wallet.  Typically, DML CBD MINTS cost $37 for one bottle.  But starting today and going thru to July 31, we are offering 60% off.  Meaning, if you buy a single bottle, instead of paying $37, your cost is around $15.  That’s incredible.  And because we always discount larger buys, you can save even more.  Meaning, if you buy a 3-pack, you save another 10% for a total of 70%.  If you buy a 10-pack, you save another 20% for a total of 80% off.  This means you would pay as low as $10 per bottle when buying a 10-pack.  These prices are below my all-in cost.  I am doing this to give back to my supporters, listeners, app users, and customers.  I want to help you and your family boost the immune system at a time when it’s most important to do so.  Therefore, only a silly person ignores this promotion.  I will NEVER do this again with DML CBD MINTS.  This is beyond generous, and it lasts until July 31 or when product runs out.  Go to and use Coupon Code JULY at checkout to get the 60% off.  Go now.


  1. Not all people in Ca are deranged! Granted there are quite a few but sanity does exist. Please don’t make blanket statements like that one. You just came from NY which is no better than Ca. and the same argument can be made. Also, I follow you on twitter, I very rarely see any of your tweets, if any. I actually thought Twitter had blocked you.

    Keep up the good work DML! America needs you.

  2. Angela is correct….All People in California are NOT deranged. The sane people daily fight the battle against evil. It is a fact that sometimes other states send their Mentality Deranged people, by a one way ticket, so taxpayers can care for them. Mental health issues are rampant in the streets in California.

  3. Thank you to Angela & Patti T for also stating that not all of us in Calif are deranged!! I was born & raised here in Southern Calif. & cannot believe what they have done to my once Golden State. Rampant cheating in elections has made this very apparent. Who would support Maxine Waters all these years? Gavin Newsom should have been recalled & the list goes on…do not let your state go to top 2 vote getters, or it will end up in partisan hell with top two Dems out here. Yes, as far as the FAKE mask mandates, they are begging for cover for their Antifa & BLM goons to go out & riot before the Midterms…when everyone is masked up, less chance of identifying the culprits!

  4. Democrats know they are in deep trouble this November, even deep blue states. The fix is started and will be ramped up next two months to mandate mail in vote, especially drop boxes so the mules can stuff as many as they can.

  5. Wow looks like you have a lot of California followers DML. There are actually many large swaths of sane people here.
