Open Thread

Democrats in the House and Senate are moving forward with legislation to add 4 Justices to the Supreme Court. I rate their chances pretty low at the moment – it is a huge step and it isn’t at all popular. But if they are going to do it, they have to do it by, say, September or not at all. Their margins are very narrow and by Fall the Red and Purple Democrats will be looking for political cover. But it shows what they want – to simply ram through whatever they desire. It is a plain fact that the Rule of Law is dead in the United States – all that matters is what you can do if you have the power to do it. It is past time for all non-Democrats to wake up to this fact and act accordingly – only the complete removal of Democrats from any position of power will keep liberty alive.

Now that they don’t need the issue any longer, Biden is ordering a withdrawal from Afghanistan. Way past time – but do keep in mind that the only reason Trump couldn’t get us out was because the Deep State threw up every roadblock they could.

Governor Ricketts (R-NE) declares Nebraska a “2nd Amendment Sanctuary State”. This is good stuff and excellent as a pushback – but it also shows that we really are becoming two entirely different nations only kept together, for the moment, because the Left doesn’t want to let us go (they need people to hate and oppress) and we don’t want to take the risk of secession. I still hope for a peaceful settlement or separation…but the future is very cloudy.

Cop accidentally shoots a man with a warrant: cop charged. Cop deliberately shoots a Trumpster who, at worst, was guilty of trespass: no charges. We are second class citizens.

CNN is an arm of the DNC. You already knew this, but Project Veritas confirmed it.

    Maybe it’s time to stop fretting about secession and start talking about expulsion. I’d vote to kick out California, Oregon and Washington as well as Minnesota. I’m tired of them, and they are giving the United States a bad name.

      I’m not sure exactly how an expulsion would work. There’s no Constitutional mechanism for it. I do think we’re in the midst of some major demographic shifts, though. People are leaving New York and California in droves. Some states are obviously more free than others. People who want to be taken care of will migrate to states with massive social welfare programs, and people who want to work, raise families and generally just be left alone will migrate to the states where that is the prevailing mindset. Those states will prosper, and the states that are dominated by people who don’t want to work and authorities who don’t want to enforce laws will collapse. I don’t see any other likely outcome at this point. I would have originally thought something like this might take a generation or two, but we’re watching it unfold right before our eyes. Whether or not it happens relatively peacefully depends on whether the Biden Administration attempts to disarm us. If we were keeping a social collapse clock, similar to the nuclear war Doomsday Clock, it would be somewhere around 11:30 PM.

        It’s called the Second Amendment lol

      • Retired Spook April 15, 2021 / 2:41 pm

        Yeah, that’s the ultimate expulsion mechanism, for sure.

    • Amazona April 16, 2021 / 8:39 am

      Oh if only we had a sarcasm font

      You should send your fawning approval directly to Joe himself. As one whose mental state is one where he can hide his own Easter eggs, he can read it every hour and think it’s a new fan letter.

      • fieldingclaymore April 15, 2021 / 1:31 pm

        Wouldn’t that be CNBC’s fawning approval?

      • Amazona April 15, 2021 / 6:32 pm

        What’s the difference? Butt-sniffing and bootlicking are the same whether done by the Agenda Media or mindless fanbois like you

  2. Cluster April 15, 2021 / 1:44 pm

    Wow … the bar has been lowered. Increasing retail sales is now I guess something to applaud and attribute to the deft hand of the POTUS. Who knew? Rational people would be embarrassed to post such drivel but then again Fielding has proven to be the “good German” so no level of slavish devotion is low enough.

    Meanwhile Komrade Kamel Toe sleeps her way to the top and then immediately proves herself to be in way over her competence level effectively diminishing the many advances women have made over the last century. Kamala did it the old fashioned way.

    • fieldingclaymore April 15, 2021 / 1:57 pm

      Without the relief bill passed by the Democrats with zero Republicans these good numbers would not have been achieved.

      “Slavish devotion” from your maw. Ha

      • Cluster April 15, 2021 / 2:20 pm

        Oh it was the relief bill was it? LMAO …. will the wonders of the corrupt incompetent ruling class ever cease?

      • Amazona April 15, 2021 / 6:35 pm

        “relief bill” = handouts to try to generate public approval of a disastrous administration.

        Related to vote buying by promising people money if they vote the “right” way

      • fieldingclaymore April 16, 2021 / 9:41 am

        Like the billions 45 gave to farmers during his easy to win trade war with China?

      • Amazona April 16, 2021 / 10:41 am

        Fielding, please cite the wording of Trump or any of his associates promising checks to farmers if they voted for him. How much would each farmer get? After all, Georgia voters were promised $2000 each for voting for Warnock.

        And then try to get that old TDS out of your system. It was toxic then and now it’s just rotting away in your brain.

      • Amazona April 16, 2021 / 10:42 am

        I’d be happier to see retail sales going up if only the people doing the buying weren’t spending my money

      • fieldingclaymore April 16, 2021 / 11:31 am

        Also 45 wanted to give people 2k too. As I recall.

      • Retired Spook April 16, 2021 / 11:37 am

        Would someone hand Fielding a shovel.

      • Amazona April 16, 2021 / 11:59 am

        Does he need another shovel? He seems to be doing pretty well with the one he has.

        “crop insurance payments” and “new programs compensating farmers for lost sales during the U.S.-China trade war” are, doncha know, exactly the same as offering $2000 to vote for a Democrat.

        Or offering cash to illegals who make it across the border

        Poor Fielding, can’t even field facts as they fly right past him while he’s scanning his phone looking for some Agenda Media site to tell him what he “thinks”

      • fieldingclaymore April 16, 2021 / 12:07 pm

        you forgot to mention that 45 wanted the 2k too, funny that.

      • Amazona April 16, 2021 / 1:35 pm

        ooooooh. More than six weeks after the election Trump advocated for sending out relief checks that had aleady been approved. So sinister. It’s a good thing Detective Fielding is on the case.

        Of course, there is that nugget of information right in the link he posted: There is nothing taxpayers need to do to receive the payments

        Hmmm. Nothing anyone needed to do to get the payments—like vote for a Democrat first, or anything.

        Now that you mention it, Spook, he’s been digging so fast and furiously he may be wearing out that shovel. He passed the stratum of “Wanna see how dumb I am?” a couple of posts ago and is still digging away.

      • Amazona April 16, 2021 / 1:37 pm

        But fielding does love his Contains Nothing But Crap, doesn’t he? It is such a good fit.

      • fieldingclaymore April 16, 2021 / 2:24 pm

        Was there an important election on 1/5/21?

      • Amazona April 16, 2021 / 4:35 pm

        Was there an important election on 1/5/21

        What the hell are you blathering on about now? Trump was not running for office, he was talking about a payment he had always supported, and you have already established your Idiocracy Cred so I don’t know why don’t just settle down and quit digging yourself in deeper and deeper into blind drooling hate-driven stupidity.

        There is nothing taxpayers need to do to receive the payments advocated by Trump. No one was told they had to vote for a Democrat to get them.

    • Amazona April 15, 2021 / 6:34 pm

      You have to admit, the mentality that gets giddy over the sequence of (1) give someone money followed by (2) that money spent on something is one that is pretty easily impressed.

      • Cluster April 16, 2021 / 8:12 am

        Exactly. Print some money for the serfs so they can buy some brightly colored Chinese garbage and this is hailed as a POTUS achievement. Like I said, the bar has been lowered significantly.

  3. Cluster April 15, 2021 / 2:21 pm

    I was just outside and man there are a lot of white supremacists walking around out there. Be careful and wear your masks.

    When I have tried to talk about societal attitudes and their trickle down effect on behavior, Lefties have hooted and sneered. OK, that’s what Leftists do, but that doesn’t change the fact that I believe there is a climate of what society will accept and when that climate shifts so do the behaviors of people.

    I first started to think about this when abortion became socially acceptable, and at the same time it seemed that child abuse was increasing. I started to wonder if the societal attitude that children have no inherent value, and that their treatment and very existence are completely dependent on the attitude of the adults around them (the basic attitude that excuses the killing of unborn children in often gruesome and brutal ways) had permeated the subconscious minds of a lot of people.

    Now I am wondering if the societal acceptance of violence as a legitimate response to some sort of grievance is related to the spate of mass shootings. If we as a society say that we tolerate—-and in some cases condone or even praise—-violence as a reasonable and legitimate response to a perceived grievance, who is there to draw the line and say “but only in street riots, not in the workplace”?

    The Left wants to say that street violence is OK if the people involved feel—or at least claim to feel—that it is in the name of protest against something they find offensive, but they don’t want to take responsibility for what happens if people inclined to violence take that to mean they, also, are justified in violent actions against people whose actions have upset them, but in places other than the context of riots in the streets.

  5. Cluster April 16, 2021 / 2:47 pm

    Isn’t it strange how when a “gun” bill is in front of Congress there’s always mass shootings in the media?? Weird how that works. It’s important to note though that in each of those cases …. the gun did not act alone.

    And who knew Marxism was so profitable? There’s a lot to digest here:

    Patrisse Cullors responded to criticism saying it is ‘categorically untrue’ and ‘incredibly dangerous’ to suggest she used organization funds for her homes. Cullors described the scrutiny over her property empire as a ‘racist and sexist’ attack by the ‘right-wing media’ in an interview for Black News Tonight Thursday. The 37-year-old broke down in tears as she revealed she has ‘spent the last week with security’ after her homes were first pictured in the media. She also shielded criticism from some on the left who have questioned whether her ownership of four homes contradicts her ideology as a ‘trained Marxist’ saying she has invested in the properties to provide for her family and sees her wealth ‘as my family’s money, as well’. It emerged last week that Cullors had bought a $1.4 million home in the largely white district of Topanga Canyon, Los Angeles. The New York Post reported that Cullors also bought three other homes since 2016 at a total cost of around $3 million. On Tuesday the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation said it had not paid toward her homes and she had not been paid by BLM since 2019.

    First of all, does anyone know what channel White News Tonight is on? And isn’t calling for the defunding of police yet hiring private security somewhat of a contradiction? Asking for a friend on this one, but I have to admit that I was impressed with their “Global Network Foundation” because I am guessing that the good people of Nigeria are wondering just exactly how oppressed American black families are, and what they can do to help.

    • Amazona April 16, 2021 / 4:43 pm

      In all Leftist governance schemes the elites make out like, well, like bandits. Which makes sense, given that their wealth is taken from the people who were stupid and gullible enough to put them in power in the first place.

    I’ve written about the time someone from a black grievance group spoke at a high school in Denver and “explained” to the students, among other things, that the word “Negro” comes from the root word “necropolis” so is a code word meaning “I wish all black people would die”.

    Since then the Grievance Community has come up with some other whoppers, all based on a toxic mix of ignorance and determination to find something to whine about. The latest is a hoot.

    Some “university lecturer” is whining about songs. She has embarked, doncha see, on a personal journey of redemption in which she has felt called to purge from her list of songs anything connected to racism, slavery or—evidently—ANYTHING.

    The funniest, if by “funny” you mean sad and tragic as it represents a level of ignorance equaled only by the person’s pathological dedication to grievance, is her take on “Jingle Bells” and why this glaring example of brutal racism simply has to GO.

    Because, you see, the “jingle bells” refer to the bells allegedly attached to slaves back in the day so the eeeeevil masters could always tell where they were.

    Of course they do.

    She claims to have done a lot of research to help her unearth the sinister underlying messages in much, oh so much, music but she seems to have completely missed the tradition, in every country where sleighs were used, of putting bells on the sleighs or horse harnesses. Her deep dive into music referring to bells seems to have missed any other references to sleigh bells, and of course she doesn’t touch on the fact that sleighs, with or without bells, were not usually used in the climates where they might have borrowed some of those nasty old slave bells, or the fact that sleigh bells predated slavery by oh, maybe a century or two.

    Oh, she has also banned “Baa Baa Black Sheep” because, in her overheated mind, it HAS to refer to a black person. Of course the actual words of the song don’t even begin to hint at that. They don’t even accommodate a delusional twist. It’s “an English nursery rhyme, the earliest printed version of which dates from around 1744” They are about sheep of different colors, with their wool used for different things. The three bags of wool from the grey sheep are:
    one for the kitten,
    one for the cats,
    and one for the owner,
    to knit some woolly hats.

    I’m sure there is some sinister racist dog whistle in there somewhere.

    What is it about these shrill and strident Grievance Hysterics that they feel compelled to strut their bizarre delusions with such pride?
