October already! Time flies. Of course, the reason why it flies is that as each year goes by, each of them is a smaller percentage of our life. To a ten year old, a year is 10% of life…seems like forever. At my age of 56, it is 1.7% of my life. Bad news: you’re much closer to dying.
But, cheer up! I’m still writing. Actually on the first draft of Book VIII of the Mirrors series. The other day, my granddaughter insisted that I needed a dragon…and this has now started to generate the children’s book, Aleste and the IceCrystal Dragons. Amazing the imagination abilities of children! I’ve ripped it from the Mirrors series with Aleste being the daughter of one of the main characters and so set it in Lontaria. It’ll be Princess Aleste and her two friends as they play with the IceCrystal dragons and thwart the designs of an evil witch yet to be named.
Nancy and Chuck are having some difficulty getting their Graft and Socialism Act of 2021 passed – Democrats came in with this idea that they would just do what they wanted as they had won an astounding victory in 2020. Never mind the fraud! But even if we want to call the election legit, the fact of the matter is they barely won…and unless Pudding Brain remained popular, getting anything large through was doing to be difficult as Purple District/State Democrats warily eyed the 2022 midterms. I’ve loved watching Left Twitter explain that this midterm would be different because Reasons and so those Democrats need not worry. I don’t now if these morons believed it, or simply hoped the at-risk Democrats would. Well, they’re not.
Officially, all problems rest on the shoulders of Manchin and Sinema – but that is just a dodge. They actually represent about 5 Democrat Senators in total and about 20 House Democrats…those most at risk of getting destroyed in 2022 if the Progressives agenda becomes law. Naturally, Democrats have been looking for an assist from the GOP…to get enough Republicans on board to allow cover to these Democrats in peril. But, so far, even people like Romney and Murkowski have shown little interest in pulling Democrat bacon out of the fire. And, honestly, why should they? Sure, they’d get a glowing write up in the Post, but that’s worn thin. They know that it actually harms them with the base to get a glowing write up in the Post. Eventually, something is going to pass – but I bet it is a lot smaller than the $3.5 trillion Bolshevik Boondoggle the Progressives want. There are already rumors out there that Nancy is promising a vote on the Prog agenda in 2022 in return for their votes today. Like that would happen in an election year!
An eco-terrorist has been confirmed by the Senate as head of the BLM: so, look for us here in the West to take huge hits in the timber and ranching interests as this nitwit tries to Save the Planet.
Team Pudding Brain is really determined to end Trump’s remain in Mexico policy, even if it means working around Court orders. This, to me, is where we see Leftist ideology trump reality. The policy is reasonable. it makes sure that real refugees can get in while keeping out the line jumpers and the criminals who prey upon them. But that it was created by the Bad Orange Man is all that matters…it has to go, no matter how popular it was with the public and how horribly unpopular Biden gets on border security. It is like the Democrats want us to have a massive triumph next year in Texas, New Mexico and Arizona.
Durham seems to be chugging along. Now, I’m confident that Biden’s “Justice” department will sabotage any prosecution…but props to the man for keeping at it.
Bush’s 2004 campaign guy, Dowd, is running for Lt Governor of Texas as a liberal Democrat. A wag asked the other day if any of Bush’s people, including Bush, are still Republican? Honestly, other than Condi Rice and a couple others, not many. We really do know why we kept mostly losing – and why, even when we won, we never got anything: all of our “Conservative” leaders were actually liberals who merely told us what we wanted to hear.
Meanwhile, the Latino vote in Texas and California continues to swing towards the GOP. And I mean, a lot. In Texas, it could lead to a rare political triumph next year…in California, it is just starting to pick up steam. It seems that Latino voters don’t like being called “Latinx”, aren’t in favor of open borders, and would rather have jobs, good schools and police protection rather than carefully crafted pronouns. Make no mistake about it, guys, to really nail down the Latino vote, we will have to go along with some Big State items…but our future depends on a coalition of white rural and Latino/POC urban voters.
Lawyers for Daleiden, the founder of the Center for Medical Progress, asked (U.S. District Judge William) Orrick to recuse himself from his case several years ago after learning of the judge’s connections to the Planned Parenthood abortion chain. However, Orrick refused.
Daleiden shared the Wall Street Journal investigation on Twitter this week, reminding people about the judge’s conflict of interest in his case as well.
Judge Orrick, who founded a Planned Parenthood abortion referral clinic that fed pregnant patients into fetus-harvesting program with @StemExpress, is among the federal judges implicated here. Orrick censored hundreds of hours of undercover footage of #PPSellsBabyParts,” he wrote.
Federal law requires judges to recuse themselves from cases in which they have a financial interest or the “ownership of a legal or equitable interest, however small.” However, the Wall Street Journal noted that the law does not penalize judges for violating the law.
The Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts responded to the investigation Tuesday by saying the findings were “troubling,” and the office is “carefully reviewing the matter.”
Orrick, an appointee of pro-abortion President Barack Obama, is presiding over one of the lawsuits against Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress, which shocked the nation with their undercover investigation of Planned Parenthood’s aborted baby body parts trade.
In 2015, Orrick issued a gag order stopping Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress from releasing an additional 200 hours of video footage. Later, he and a federal jury awarded Planned Parenthood a $16 million verdict against Daleiden and his organization. They are appealing.
As I have repeatedly noted, a law without a penalty is pretty much the same as no law at all. In our current system, judges can and do violate laws regarding conflict of interest and other ethical issues, as well as routinely violating their oaths of office, without the slightest repercussions.
It is within the jurisdiction of legislatures to make such violations punishable. My solution, imperfect as it is, is to make the oath of office binding, meaning that a proven violation would result in the loss of the position and all its attendant benefits.
We can complain all we want about lack of accountability at the highest levels of government but it is the blatant violations of laws meant to protect us in our daily lives that have the most impact on us because there is no accountability—-and I mean NONE—-at the judicial level.
America thinks the unthinkable: More than half of Trump voters and 41% of Biden supporters want red and blue states to SECEDE from one another and form two new countries, shock new poll finds
I am all for this. And I wouldn’t open up trade relations with them either lol.
Did you read those cockamamie questions on this “poll”? What utter crap. Given the insanity that seems to define Virginia these days any poll from “The University of Virginia’s Center for Politics” is lacking credibility as far as I am concerned. Combine that with the lefty Daily Mail and I don’t think you have anything you can count on as being accurate or representative.
This “poll” does seem intent on “proving” that Republicans are as crazy about top-down tyranny and discarding the duties and restraints of the Constitution as the Dems are, and I don’t buy that.
However, talking about secession, I think it would be a disaster. I prefer the idea of splitting some states to create 8 or 10 new states. We’ve been talking forever about how California is and should officially be three states. Eastern Oregon and Washington are fed up with the Left Coast antics in their states, so carve off the eastern parts of those states and create a new state called Olympia. Illinois hates being dominated by Chicago politics, so cut that state in half and come up with a name for that new state. The rural areas of eastern Colorado and western Kanas and Nebraska are not well represented by the cities in those three states so combine the rural areas into a state called Centennial. New York is not well represented by Manhattan so upstate New York should be its own state. I’m not that familiar with Michigan but I’m sure it has similar representation problems, and no doubt some other state would benefit by division. I’d go for 60 states, and if the Left insists on adding Puerto Rico that would be balanced by the other 9 new states on the continent. (Texas should be split but I’m not up for another war.)
This would retain the identify of the United States, get us back a lot closer to true representation, diminish the tyranny of leftist urban centers over the Heartland, and also BTW add new red states.
I agree secession wouldn’t end well but we are starting to see this play out. Republicans in blue states throughout this country are moving to red states and I believe this pattern will continue. I can’t imagine any sane and rational person wanting to stay in CA. Right Watson?
I love the idea of the Left putting up their brilliant idea for getting four more Dem Senators by pushing for Puerto Rico and D.C. becoming states and first being reminded that the only way D.C. can become a state is to amend the Constitution and then hitting them with the idea of adding another 8 or 9 states and not just one. The sound of Leftist brain cells exploding would be heard across the land. Once they did the math and realized that their scheme to add Dem Senators just led to an expanded plan that would probably add 15 or 16 Republican Senators the backpedaling would start.
But all joking aside, our House of Representatives is simply not representative. In California a single member of the House represents about 750,000 people. Wyoming’s single Representative has a constituency of just over half a million. But the original concept of the House was that there would be at least one Representative per state and that no more than one for every 30,000 persons. Clearly the idea was that a Representative’s constituency would be small enough for him or her to have the ability to communicate with them.
So we now have massive constituencies per Representative, and we also have unequal representation with so much population concentrated in urban areas that more rural areas have less voice in what happens.
A wag asked the other day if any of Bush’s people, including Bush, are still Republican?
The decline started with his Dad, George. H. W. Bush and his “new world order” speech. The Bush’s are deep state, chamber of commerce type republicans … the very worst kind.
This is what happens when Identity Politics replaces ideological politics. If we can define “Republican” as being the party supporting Constitutional governance which includes a federal government restricted as to size, scope and power with most authority left to the people, we can see that the Bushes seem to be using a different definition.
When you start to think of the role of government as being a massively powerful Central Authority charged with solving the problems of the citizens using government controls and powers, regardless of the delegated duties of the federal government and the Constitutional restrictions on it, you are no longer a Republican no matter what that little initial on your lapel might say.
Remember the effort to make a big deal out of Eric Trump meeting with a Russian woman during the campaign? I’m a little ashamed to admit that at the time I didn’t take it upon myself to do any research to find out anything about the topic of the meeting—-something about Russian orphans and the Magnitsky Act, Then a year or so later a casual friend told me about knowing a guy named Bill Browder and how interesting he is, and over the next year or so I kept running into hit pieces on Bill Browder, calling him a nut and a conspiracy theorist and so on. So over the past few years these fragments of information have been bouncing around in my head.
Well, I just finished listening to Bill Browder’s book Red Notice and found it riveting. As a young guy who had been fascinated by Eastern Europe he did a lot of research into investing in the new Russian economy after the government decided to privatize industry and made billions, ran into Russian corruption, got sideways with Putin and saw a good friend arrested on bogus charges after he became a whistleblower about government corruption and then tortured till he died. The friend was named Sergei Magnitsky and his brutal death launched Browder into a campaign for justice, ending in the U.S. Congress passing a law preventing corrupt Russian officials from coming to the U.S.—the Magnitsky Act. In retaliation, an enraged Putin refused to allow Americans to adopt Russian children. It’s a fascinating story ranging from high finance to walking the tightrope of dealing with people who kill people who get in their way to the human interest story of his friend’s death at the hands of a brutal regime, and the unexpected result of getting American politicians to back the only way to impose any accountability of any kind on criminals from Russia.
And one of the things that kept running through my mind as I listened to this book was the ugly reality of life under Leftist rule, and how it desensitizes people to corruption and brutality, tainting an entire population.
I highly recommend the book in any format.
More stuff on the “vaccine” from a doctor who calls it “the clot shot”.
And then there is this: Denver Police Officer Speaks Out About the Devastating Impact the City’s Vaccine Mandate Has Had on Him
Have you ever been reading something that sounds like you agree with it and then suddenly slam into something that is the opposite?
Kurt Schlicter said, in an article about Fauci: Everything would have been much, much easier if they hadn’t, you know, lied to us from the beginning. I heard an interview with my pal Hugh Hewitt and Anthony Fauci the other day, and Hewitt said, perhaps, you know, it hurt your credibility when you lied about masks early on and said they don’t do anything. Here’s an idea. Don’t lie to people — leadership 101.
I like Hugh and usually agree with him so I’m just cruising along till I hit this: it hurt your credibility when you lied about masks early on and said they don’t do anything. Suddenly he has turned this upside down, because in my mind Fauci was (and is) lying about masks by saying they are effective. In my mind the lying started after he admitted that masks “don’t do anything” when he decided he wanted the control of being able to make everyone in the country run around wearing face diapers.
It just illustrates how people can have a completely different take on the same thing. I have often heard Hugh make a comment and thought “how the hell did you get there from here?” I’m sure he would say the same thing about me.
It is astonishing how overtly racist MSNBC has become. Why does the media, and I believe a large chunk of the black and brown populations, consider themselves to be so inferior? I’ll never understand that.
My read on this is that Democrats in general have gotten used to seeing certain media platforms as “good” and have stuck with them, mostly because they have entertained Dems by bashing Republicans. And most of our darker-skinned fellow Americans have been generationally Democrat.
But I see a couple of things starting to edge the status quo in a different direction. One is the gradual realization that Democrats are full of crap, and one is that they really have no true respect for, as the put it, People of Color. We’re seeing some prominent black people commenting on the racism of assuming that black people just aren’t smart enough to get photo IDs, for example.
What we have to do is give that slight inclination to question the Dem talking points a good solid nudge to speed it up. I’d like to see more than a nudge, but I have learned that my fellow conservatives simply lack the ability to do so. So we will undoubtedly continue to be unable to hit these slow balls tossed over the middle of the plate. We’ll continue to fail to ask why Democrats assume that people with dark skin are too stupid to know how to get photo IDs. We’ll continue to fail to ask why Democrats assume that people with dark skin will automatically vote for Democrats even when the policies of the party are so obviously damaging to them. We’ll continue to fail to ask why people with dark skin tolerate being treated like ignorant children who can’t think for themselves.
There still are a couple of good Democrats out there and thankfully one of them is AZ Senator Sinema, who I plan to vote for
A Democratic senator from Arizona is slamming leaders of her own party over their ‘inexcusable’ failure to hold a vote on the $1.2trillion bipartisan infrastructure plan. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, taking to Twitter Saturday, called the canceled vote ‘deeply disappointing’ and a betrayal of the trust of the American people. ‘The failure of the U.S. House to hold a vote on the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act is inexcusable, and deeply disappointing for communities across our country,’ Sinema wrote. ‘Denying Americans millions of good-paying jobs, safer roads, cleaner water, more reliable electricity, and better broadband only hurts everyday families.’ House Speaker Nancy Pelosi canceled the vote on the Senate-passed infrastructure bill on Thursday as several far-left caucus members vowed refusal to back the measure unless lawmakers reached an agreement on the proposed $3.5trillion social spending bill. Although Democrats did not have enough votes to pass the infrastructure bill, Sinema argues that cancelling it was ‘an ineffective stunt to gain leverage over a separate proposal.’ ‘My vote belongs to Arizona, and I do not trade my vote for political favors — I vote based only on what is best for my state and the country,’ she said. ‘I have never, and would never, agree to any bargain that would hold one piece of legislation hostage to another.’
I like her, too—but if I were in Arizona I would still not vote for her.
The conservative talk show host Mike Rosen, who was BTW the voice that led me out of the darkness to the conservative side, always said “Party trumps person”. By that he meant the invaluable advantage of being the majority party.
Being the majority party doesn’t just mean having the votes to pass legislation, it means committee chairmanships and other elements of power I don’t even understand.
I’m glad Sinema seems to be starting to see the light, regarding Pelosi and perhaps her whole party. But she is still a Democrat. Reelecting her will still tilt the balance of R vs D in the Senate toward the D side.
And if we let that cynical voice in most of us have a chance to speak, it will ask if Sinema is angling for Republican and Independent votes by taking this stand. Sure, she knows the bill is awful and stupid and a disaster for the country, but she is also probably looking at the swing toward the Right taking place all over the country and calculating what it will take to ride that out and keep her seat—which would be to appeal to enough conservatives to get them to vote for a Democrat.
Who would be running against her? Does Arizona have a good solid conservative who could consistently bring the right political and cultural values to the Senate for years to come, giving the Republicans a better sense of confidence in our ability to do what we have to do? I see that as a much better choice than electing a Dem because she stood up to her caucus on a bill or two and then spending the next 6 years wondering which way she will go on every bill and issue that comes up.
Has Hillary Clinton Lost Her Mind?
Gee, I don’t know. Is it a day that ends in “Y”?
But it’s a good observation of the cluelessness of the Left
More U.S. air carriers—American Airlines, Alaska Airlines, and JetBlue—have announced they will be requiring employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
Evidently the executives of these companies are too busy pandering to the radical Left to pay any attention to what is being published outside their bubble. One example:
Physician and Army Lieutenant Colonel Theresa Long has an excellent article on the dangers of the “vaccine”. From her article:
Numerous Soldiers and DOD civilians have told me of how they were sick, bed-ridden, debilitated, and unable to work for days to weeks after vaccination. I have also recently reviewed three flight crew members’ medical records, all of which presented with both significant and aggressive systemic health issues. Today I received word of one fatality and two ICU cases on Fort Hood; the deceased was an Army pilot who could have been flying at the time. All three pulmonary embolism events happened within 48 hours of their vaccination.
Yeah, I really want to fly on an airplane where the pilot has been forced to take an experimental drug known to have a side effect of myocarditis which can suddenly and fatally result in a pulmonary embolism.
Dr. Long focused on a now widely recognized health impact of current COVID vaccines, saying “vaccination with mRNA increases the risk of myocarditis.” “Research shows that most individuals with myocarditis do not have any symptoms. Complications of myocarditis include dilated cardiomyopathy, arrhythmias, sudden cardiac death and carries a mortality rate of 20% at one year and 50% at 5 years. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, U.S. National Library of Medicine, “despite optimal medical management, overall mortality has not changed in the last 30 years.’”
‘We must establish a screening program to identify those at increased risk of myocarditis, i.e., those that have, received mRNA vaccinations with [Pfizer] or Moderna, or have any of the following symptoms chest pain, shortness of breath or palpitations”
With regard to the Pfizer vaccine, “One of the primary ingredients of the Lipid Nanoparticle delivery system is “ALC 1035.” This is a toxic material. It “comprises between 30-50% of the total ingredients.” Among a number of serious possible effects is this reality: “Caution: Product has not been fully validated for medical applications. For research use only.” Also noted: “Other journals and scientific papers also denote that this particular ingredient has never been used in humans before.” The Colonel correctly notes “My assessment is that ALC 1035 is a known toxin with little study, specifically restricted to ‘research only’ and effectively has no prior [medical] use history.”
Another ingredient in the vaccine is a known toxic chemical: “Polyethylene Glycol is the active ingredient in antifreeze.” There have been countless cases where people have been fatally poisoned with this chemical. This comment by the Colonel is especially impressive: “I cannot discern what form of alchemy Pfizer and the FDA have discovered that would make antifreeze into a healthful cure to the human body.”
Another important point is that “Moderna’s key ingredient, SM-102… is significantly more dangerous than the Pfizer ALC 3015.” Noted is that “This Moderna ingredient is deadly.”
People are starting to pay attention, though. From the comments section of the article on the airline mandates:
it’s a good thing there are 2 pilots who can actually fly the plane as. it’s very likely we’ll see at least one of them having a severe adverse reaction at some point on some (or several) flights after they’ve all been forced to take the death jab.
Wait until pilot gets multiple blood clots at 30k feet!!! God help us!
Sorry. 30 thousand feet is not where I want to suddenly discover my fully jabbed pilot is having an “adverse event”.
SO, some of the military is not allowing its pilots to fly after the jab, but it’s okay for civilians?
This doesn’t surprise me at all ….
What surprises me is how so many people are so easily manipulated by social media.
So Democrats are finally being honest. The question is, are Americans paying attention? First, Terry McAuliffe at the VA Gubernatorial debate said that “parents should not have a say in their childs education” and now we have this …
Pennsylvania Democrat Christopher M. Rabb sent out a memorandum to all House members regarding his legislation that will enforce reproductive responsibility among men. The bill will force ment to undergo vasectomies within 6 weeks from having their third child or their 40th birthday, whichever comes first.
Covid is the flu and it was weaponized worldwide for ultimate population control. We are living through possibly the largest organized effort by the worlds elite to amass ultimate control and power. Will free independent people stand and resist before it’s too late?
I keep hearing from members of the Biden regime and its willing accomplices in the corporate media that people like me are the biggest threat to the security of the country, but I’m not seeing any evidence of that. And I would think that if it were true, it would be above-the-fold/lead-off-the-broadcast news. The two instances that, at first glance, seemed to have been orchestrated by far right militia types, the attempted kidnapping of that nitwit governor in Michigan and the January 6th fiasco at the Capitol, are turning out to have been largely run by undercover FBI agents. Sooner or later it’s going to be put-up-or-shut-up time. Or maybe the goal is simply to push real patriots into doing something stupid. If that’s the case, it hasn’t worked.
The “insurrection” on Jan 6 was an FBI led insurrection.
What we are witnessing is the real orchestrated effort by the worlds ruling class to demoralize western countries and their populations. Individual freedoms must be brought to heal if “human infrastructure” is the goal …. and that is the goal. A world of those who rule and those who are ruled.
There may be a few at the top of the Leftist food chain who have a plan to make that happen, but the vast majority of footsoldiers are in for a rude awakening when they discover that the plan involves large numbers of them dying. I’m not the least bit afraid to lay down my life for the cause of liberty; in fact, I can’t think of a better way to go. But I can’t imagine a lot of useful idiots voluntarily putting their lives on the line for economic, climate, social and racial justice.
I can’t imagine a lot of useful idiots voluntarily putting their lives on the line for economic, climate, social and racial justice.
They won’t have the physical energy to even consider putting their lives on the line for anything other than basis survival, if the predictions of some vaxx critics prove to be accurate.
If the mortality rate of myocarditis is 20% in the first year and up to 50% by the fifth year (Complications of myocarditis include dilated cardiomyopathy, arrhythmias, sudden cardiac death and carries a mortality rate of 20% at one year and 50% at 5 years. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, U.S. National Library of Medicine, “despite optimal medical management, overall mortality has not changed in the last 30 years) a huge proportion of these kids subjected to the clot shot in this new frantic push to give kids the shots are going to be dead or disabled. When the micro clots start to clump together what is the effect of that going to be on our population?
History won’t be able to say the United States was destroyed without a shot being fired, it will have to say it was brought down by one or two or three shots. An enfeebled population can’t defend itself or even support itself.
Are citizens of China or Russia being forced to take this experimental drug? Put another way, are these nations going to be similarly crippled? Or is it going to be mostly North America and Western Europe seeing two whole generations destroyed?
….an otherwise healthy 15-year-old teenager was found dead by his mother. The teenager had received his second dose of the Pfizer vaccine two days prior.
From the Death Investigation Synopsis Report, courtesy of Reopen California Schools:
The decedent was found unresponsive in his bedroom after his mother was checking on his welfare long after he was supposed to wake in the morning. The decedent was pronounced dead at the scene due to obvious death. The decedent had been in good health with no medical history and had received his second Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccination approximately two days before his death.
The CDC is aware this is not an anomaly. Back in July, they investigated the death of a 13-year-old Michigan teenager who died two days after receiving his second shot of the Pfizer vaccine. As early as June 2021, reports out of Israel saw a link between the second shot of the Pfizer vaccine and complications, particularly in young men under 30.
After emergency personnel pronounced the young man dead on the scene, his body was transported to the Sonoma County morgue facility, and a thorough post-mortem exam was done by a forensic pathologist.
After extensive research, additional testing, and collaboration with numerous other entities, the cause of death was determined to be: “STRESS CARDIOMYOPATHY WITH PERIVASCULAR CORONARY ARTERY INFLAMMATION (hours to days), due to, UNKNOWN ETIOLOGY IN SETTING OF RECENT PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINATION (days).” There were no other significant conditions contributing to the death listed.
If I made a list of the people in government whom I most admire, Kash Patel would be in the top 10. Good guy.
Read this, Please read this. And then wait to see it makes the Agenda Media “news” cycle.
