Getting that time of year where I like to have pea soup – and what I like to have with my pea soup is muenster cheese. Sure, not the most popular sort of cheese in the world, but also not some rare commodity. No muenster cheese in the grocery store. No beef bologna, either.

Our Ruling Class and the corporate class are deliberately making America a land of shortages so that prices will go higher and we’ll get used to being poor. They hate American prosperity. Makes us independent and willing to fight…they want us all barely scraping by so that our only concern is daily survival.

Pudding Brain is having great difficulty getting his agenda passed – mostly because the Left is acting like they won a 1932-style victory last year and have been given carte blanche to do whatever they want. They have run up against the reality that when you only have 50 Senators and some of yours are extremely vulnerable, you can’t do anything unless you get the other side on board. They’ve done nothing to get the GOP on board (and it wouldn’t be hard: just throw us a bone or two) and so Cocaine Mitch has said, “work it out amongst yourselves”. We’ll see how they do.

Sinema and Manchin are ever more the Bad Guys in this morality play of the Left: they are furious the pair won’t go along. But as I noted before, SineManchin is just the front for a larger body of Senate Dems who want nothing to do with this. But, even if they were, the reality is that Manchin represents a State that went 40 points for Trump last year and even putting the most rosy Dem picture on AZ, it is a swing State. Anyone who goes too far Left is going to lose. Manchin has point blank said he’s not a liberal, never has been. Sinema is more of the Left than Manchin, but she’s also not entirely easy to categorize and, worse for Dems, she doesn’t seem to care what anyone thinks of her. Most pols who go to DC become desperate for the approval of other pols and power players. Sinema doesn’t seem to have this psychosis. Don’t, of course, trust her on policy – but our job is to work with her where we can.

New Zealand has had some of the tightest restrictions in the world since Covid began. Now, cases are spreading…and their reaction is to impose even tighter restrictions. Its almost like the definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing hoping for a different result.

Over in Australia they are essentially under a military dictatorship – and Big Tech has taken to censoring on the sly any videos of Australian cops beating the sh** out of people to keep them healthy. Make no mistake about it: the Global Ruling Class is, indeed, Global. They are all alike everywhere. The only reason every government (outside a few run by people who are sane – such as Brazil) isn’t treating us like the CCP treats the Chinese is that they don’t think they can. Yet. Their goal is to do to us exactly what has happened in China. They don’t want any of us peons pestering them further.

Trans weightlifter named female sportswomen of the year. This is really on you ladies: just how long will you put up with this?

Playboy’s October cover features a man. We’re supposed to be all shocked about this. Mostly, we’re bored. But, also, talk about losing the plot! Hugh Hefner’s program – a rather vile program – was to make it socially acceptable for middle aged men to seduce young women. The path to this was a magazine which featured boobs and interesting articles (and, yes ladies, we did read the articles…only after the boobs, of course: but back in the day, they did feature a variety of interesting articles). Nobody – not a single person – is interested in a man dressed in a bunny suit. I’m gonna bet that even gay men and women – if they had to choose – would rather see a good looking man on the cover rather than a skinny dude in a bunny costume.

    We were coming back from the grocery earlier this afternoon, and I noticed that the car a couple hundred feet ahead of us had a BIDEN decal in the rear window. You don’t see many BIDEN decals in this bright red, rural farm town, but when we got closer, it turned out to be this:

    Below are pieces I took from an article prior to it being removed. It is long but highly informative.

    David Martin, Ph.D., who has done a phenomenal job uncovering the paper trail behind the virus now known as SARS-CoV-2. As it turns out, this is not a novel virus at all, as patents and government grants detailing key features of the virus go back two decades.

    In 1998, he founded a company called M-CAM International, which is focused on finding ways to bring intellectual property into conventional finance. M-CAM also started auditing the U.S. patent system at the request of the U.S. Congress.

    In the early 2000s, M-CAM worked with the Senate Banking Committee and was a contractor for the United States Treasury to expose white collar criminal activity around intellectual property and tax fraud. In doing that work, Martin also discovered something else.

    “Quite alarmingly, we found an enormous number of patents [detailing] biological and chemical weapon violations,” Martin says. “That was not something we were looking for. I let people know this was not something we set out to find. This is something that landed in our lap.

    I developed a technology a decade earlier called linguistic genomics, which is a means by which you can look at unstructured text data and find the metaphoric meaning inside of what is being communicated. As you can imagine, if people of ill intent are trying to do something, they often hide what they’re doing in plain sight, but they use language that is not conventional.

    So, when you find a patent, for example, on a blast-resistant pathogen from a rocket-propelled grenade — did you hear what I just said? ‘A blast-resistant pathogen from a rocket-propelled grenade.’ Does that sound like it’s a common way to inoculate a population or does that sound like [a bioweapon]?

    The biggest alarm bell was published February 12, 2016, by EcoHealth Alliance president Peter Daszak1 who, according to Martin, has been “the money laundering agent” for gain-of-function research coronaviruses after the U.S. implemented a moratorium on that kind of research in 2014. Rather than close it down, this research was simply moved over to China instead. In 2015, Daszak stated:

    “To sustain the funding base beyond the crisis, we need to increase the public understanding of the need for medical countermeasures, such as a pan influenza or a pan coronavirus vaccine. A key driver is the media and the economics will follow the hype. We need to use that hype to our advantage to get to the real issues. Investors will respond if they see profit at the end of the process.”

    That statement was made by Daszak in 2015, and was published in the spring of 2016. The statement “set off alarm bells very loudly within my organization,” Martin says, “because when you have somebody who is promoting gain-of-function research, and clearly blurring the line on what is even legal … saying we need ‘media to create the hype’ … and ‘investors will follow if they see profit’ … that doesn’t sound like public health.

    To me, that sounds like organized crime. That sounds like racketeering, and we need to raise this issue.”

    In all, since 2002, some 4,000 patents have been filed on the genome, vaccines and detection of coronavirus. According to Martin, this is alarming, “because you don’t file patents on something that you don’t intend to commercialize.” Evidence of intended commercialization can also be found by looking at the dates of certain patents by certain companies.

    April 28, 2003, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention filed a patent on the genome of the SARS coronavirus. Five days later, Sequoia Pharmaceuticals received a $935,000 grant and filed U.S. Patent 7151163 for a treatment for that same virus. How can you file a patent for the treatment of a virus that was only discovered five days earlier?

    “That sounds like an inside job,” Martin says. “Because you cannot have a pathogen identified and a cure for it in five days, when all of the information was held from the public, because when the CDC filed its patent on the genome of coronavirus, it paid to keep that patent secret.

    So, somebody somewhere knows that this thing was going to turn out to be a moneymaker … The proliferation of proprietary controls around SARS Coronavirus probably exceeds at least by two or three times most other pathogens …

    So, while we’ve been told that SARS-CoV-2 is something we’ve never seen before, there are 4,000 patents and patent applications that say otherwise. The same can be said for the testing and the COVID shots. For example, Pfizer filed the first S1 spike protein vaccine patent on coronavirus in 1990 — 30 years ago.

    How did we get to a point where taxpayers are funding research on pathogens that are being designed to sicken and kill us, only to drive profits into the drug industry and all these various patent holders, which include the government itself?

    In large part, it goes back to the implementation of the Bayh-Dole Act of 1980, which allows the beneficiaries of federal grants to file patents on work derived from federally funded research. The idea was that the economy would benefit by allowing scientists to be entrepreneurs first, rather than simply publishing their research.

    This piece of legislation has undermined health care by bringing the patent office, the FDA and CDC into an unholy trinity that serves and promotes private pharmaceutical concerns. So, what we have now is an insidious funding loop.

    “Corporations and pharma lobby to get people elected. Once they’re elected, the lobbyists flow an enormous amount of money into the various NIH programs. In the case of NIAID, since Fauci took over [in 1984], $191 billion have gone through his fingers. Now, is that because he’s successful?
    No, as a matter of fact, under his watch, allergies and infectious diseases have increased over 60 times. Yet somehow or another, he’s still the director of a failed [agency] that’s gotten $191 billion to solve a problem that is getting worse every single year.

    If it was a company, we would have fired him. The problem is, it’s not a company. It’s a money laundering agency. It moves public funds through the hands of a federal agency into the research laboratories, which ultimately are going to conduct research that is then licensed back to the benefactors, which are the pharmaceutical companies that paid to get people into office in the first place.

    While we’ve been told COVID-19 caused excess deaths in 2020, one way to double-check that is to look at the number of life insurance policies paid. And in 2020, there were actually fewer life insurance policies paid out than normal, according to Martin.

    “Whose numbers are you going to believe? Are you going to believe the CDC who’s trying to pump and dump this terror campaign of people dying, and therefore you need to have your mask on, you need to socially distance, you need to vaccinate?

    Or are you going to believe the numbers from the people who actually pay claims when real human life ends? It turns out that if you look at the audited financial statements of the world’s largest life insurance companies, we can find no excess death evidence. Is COVID so smart that it only kills the uninsured?

    So Merck is developing a new pill to counter Covid. Much like Ivermectin, with the exception that I heard this new pill will cost about $700 per dose versus the 10 cents that Ivermectin costs.I am also waiting for our health experts to to identify Theraflu and Alka Seltzer night time cold as other remedies to this pandemic.

    Fauci wants to cancel Christmas again. And with all the shipping containers stranded out at sea, do you think the ruling class is trying to demoralize the population? Does it seem like they’re trying to dismantle Judeo-Christian traditions? Or is that just me?

    And let me state for the record that Trump won AZ. That’s just a fact. But we are dealing with completely dishonest people who cheated and stole the election. I think Sinema understands that and I will give her credit for that. I also respect that she doesn’t cower to the Leftist mob so she has won my vote if she keeps this up. The only alternative would be to vote for a weak Republican like Doug Ducey and I can’t bring myself to do that anymore. My vote for Romney was my last vote for any establishment Republican.

      Here are some thoughts on supporting your immune system.

      Prescription drugs Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin are ionophores. Ionophores are compounds forming lipid-soluble complexes that act as vehicles for transporting ions across biological membranes. There are other non-prescription ionophores that can do the same thing and can be bought OTC (over the counter) such as, Quercetin and Resveratrol. Both of these compounds are plant pigments (flavonoids) found in many plants and foods, such as grapes, red wine, onions, green tea, apples, and berries. The skins of these plants primarily contain the flavonoids. They have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects that help reduce swelling, kill cancer cells, control blood sugar, and aid in preventing heart disease.

      In treating bacterial and viral infections, the trace mineral zinc is key to combating the effects of biological threats and one of the elements transported into the cell with the ionophore. It provides an integral component of approximately 10% of the human proteome, and encompassing hundreds of key enzymes and transcription factors.

      In conjunction to these treatments, vitamin D plays a significant roll in lowering the negative effects of disease. One of the reasons why vitamin D is so important has to do with its influence on T cell responses and is said to help speed up viral clearance by producing surfactants in your lungs that aid in fluid removal. One of the reasons dark skin people tend to suffer greater negative responses to COVID and other viral infections is due to their lessened production of natural vitamin D. A Spanish study found giving supplemental vitamin D3 to hospitalized patients with PCR-confirmed COVID-19, in addition to standard care, reduced ICU admissions by 82% and mortality by 64%.

      Vitamin C, in particularly the whole vitamin C compound and not just the fractional portion – ascorbic acid (almost always synthetic), is also an antioxidant that aids in strengthening your body’s natural defense. It helps reduce the risk of chronic disease, manage blood pressure, regulate cholesterol, believed to reduce blood uric acid levels and help prevent gout attacks, helps prevent iron deficiency, boost overall immunity and protects memory as you age.

      Iodine is believed to be among the body’s first line defense. It’s a bactericidal agent, which penetrates bacterial cell walls, and although its precise killing mechanism is uncertain due to its extensive halogen reactivity, it’s likely related to retardation of bacterial protein synthesis, disruption of electron transport, DNA denaturation or membrane destabilization.

      I was talking with a friend yesterday about Arizona. She isn’t very political yet—give me time—but she was telling me her husband is there now, as they have had their business there and he still has to spend time there. This is in the southern part of the state. He has said he doesn’t want her or their son to go to Arizona, period. He says it is too dangerous. He is seeing gangs of illegals walking along the sides of the road, carrying guns.

      This made me look up the actual wording of our Constitution. The Preamble says (emphasis mine) We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. I’m not finding a nation invaded, with the blessing of the president and his party, to be conducive to “domestic Tranquility” and for damned sure not paying attention to “the common defence”.

      Going on, we find the delegated duties of the federal government. That is, what is assigned to the federal government by law as its required job. Article 4, Section IV, says The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion…. Congress (that is, the federal government) is also required to ” provide for the common Defence”.

      I think hordes of foreigners swarming across our borders in violation of our immigration laws and then marching into the interior of the country carrying weapons sounds a lot like an invasion, yet about half of Congress and the entire Executive Branch are ignoring these delegated duties. They are not optional. They are why the federal government exists in the first place.

      (The president) shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:– I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

      The U.S. Constitution, Article VI, clause 3, states “The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution.…………. We may lack the will to say we want the oath of office to be a condition of service, but the Constitution does—it specifically says shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution.. And it emphasizes the fact that all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States are BOUND by this and the other delegated duties and responsibilities.

      Why do we tolerate a two of our three branches of government giving tacit approval and even protection to the violation of our own Constitution?

      Hopefully enough people will understand the need for majorities in both houses of Congress to overlook the emotional attraction of someone from the opposition party (Identity Politics) and work to establish the kind of solid foundation necessary to move forward with productive legislation, vacate dangerous prior legislations and protect the sitting president.

      A “weak Republican” is still a Republican when it comes to numbers. So a “weak Republican” governor and statehouse still count as a Republican vote if the House ever has to choose a president. A “weak Republican” Senator or Representative still factors into the total of which party has the majority in either chamber of Congress. That is, refusing to vote for a “weak Republican” might keep Schumer as the head of the Senate, or Pelosi as Speaker of the House (which is, I remind you, third in line for the presidency) or lead to a House selection of a Democrat for the presidency.

      Mitt Romney is a weasel who prostrates himself on the altar of acceptance by the Left. Yet he voted with Trump 81% of the time, and even his egregiously offensive votes, like voting for impeachment, had no meaningful effect (which he understood) and were just theater to establish his “bipartisan” image. His presence as a nominally Republican Senator still adds to the total of Republicans in the Senate, forcing a tie breaking vote in an evenly split decision. Maybe he is an annoying placeholder, but he does contribute to the numbers necessary to be able to accomplish anything in Congress. So I would vote for nearly any Republican over Romney, but vote for Romney over ANY Democrat.

      It is so much worse than just being told the “vaccine” would protect us when it doesn’t—-it is that the “vaccine” seems to be toxic, with adverse consequences ranging from sudden death within days to long-term (as in lifelong) damage to health.

      Combine those with the absolutely stunning focus on forcing everyone in the country to submit to the experimental drug and you have a real mess.

      Under the guise of protecting Americans this administration, along with its obedient lapdog media minions, is actively working to harm and even kill us by demanding, with the threat of severe punishment for failure to comply, that we subject ourselves to something that won’t help us, might kill us and, according to recent data, is very likely to permanently damage or even cripple us.

      Are we supposed to believe that the people in this administration don’t have access to the same medical and scientific data we have been seeing? Are we supposed to believe that “journalists” haven’t read the same reports we have? So what is the logical conclusion? To me, it is either that they are totally blinded by bias and simply dismiss it or that they support the idea of killing and/or crippling a large portion of our population because that allows them to exert complete control over us. Feeble people will depend on the government to take care of them, so enfeeble as many as possible seems to be the strategy.

    The largest and most corrupt political scandal in this nations history is simply being ignored …

    Fiona Hill said on Tuesday she did not believe President Vladimir Putin had any compromising information on former President Donald Trump, whom she served as Russia expert on the National Security Council for two years.

    Speculation swirled throughout Trump’s presidency that his soft line on Russia and deference to Putin were the result of kompromat – potentially embarrassing information held by Moscow.

    “Speculation swirled” ???? There was no speculation about it. The Media, The FBI and every Democrat lied through their teeth for four years convincing America that Trump was a Russian agent. They divided this country, they impeached him twice, and they unleashed bio warfare to get rid of him … and now that’s called “speculation” ???

    I hate these motherfuckers and I will never let them forget just how vile and reprehensible they are.

    • Amazona October 6, 2021 / 11:03 am

      The “speculation” was entirely invented by the Left and dumped into every media outlet—even the few not part of the Agenda Media reported that the others were making this claim.

      And make no mistake about it—this was a media event. The Agenda Media were fully behind it, they were part of adding to the narrative when they found some idea they could tack onto it to make it even more dramatic and salacious. They were not reporting on something, they were part of creating it and then spreading it. This was a complete lie, not just an exaggeration stemming from a small fact but a total invention from the get-go, spawned in the fever swamp of Democrat dirty tricks and birthed by the complicit FBI before it was presented to the American public as fact by media so thoroughly corrupt to their cores that there are no excuses for them.

      Without the Agenda Media, few if any of the problems and issues we are seeing now would exist.

        Without the Agenda Media, few if any of the problems and issues we are seeing now would exist.

        That’s a fact

      • Amazona October 6, 2021 / 1:52 pm

        I’ve been trying to focus on identifying a problem to look for a way to solve it—my comments on military problems calling for military responses and political problems calling for political solutions as two examples. Here I see a media problem. Not just a propaganda problem—that’s another area where I am always lecturing about the need to meet messaging with better messaging. No, this is quite specifically the issue of a significant number of media platforms working actively to foment dissension, create and exacerbate conflicts, create and spread lies and work together to hide or deny facts with the specific goal of defeating any resistance to hard-Left control and governance. In a way it’s related to propaganda, but it is different in that it is specific to, for the most part, television platforms. There are a couple of print media culprits, like the New York Times, but for the most part it comes down to CNN, MSNBC and the alphabet networks of ABC, CBS and NBC.

        I believe these spewers of hate and lies could be defanged if we had a strong media platform of our own with the backbone to take them on and the ability to formulate a strategy and stick to it. Some of us were talking about this the other day, and I made my argument that the fight has to be taken to them, instead of us always being on the back foot and playing defense. I am most definitely not talking about being “mild mannered” but about being downright vicious.

        In my ideal response scenario, we would have a platform—ideally having bought out CNN as they are failing and in financial trouble—- firing everyone there and putting together a kick ass and take no names strategy. In this scenario there would be something like a Moron Of The Day segment, where someone would be called out by name and have the hide ripped off him or her for some egregiously stupid statement. I’m talking about something like “Just how stupid do you have to be to state that President Trump, or anyone in his administration for that matter, ever advised anyone to inject bleach? As stupid as Jen Psaki, that’s how stupid, (Play her statement.) Now we can consider the possibility that she knows better and is purposely lying, because we have seen her lie before. But if she doesn’t want to cop to being a liar we have to go by what we see, which is that she is today’s Moron Of The Day for saying something so blatantly stupid.”

        There would be great wailing and gnashing of teeth, tears and temper tantrums, accusations of bullying and sexism and racism and so on. But people would tune in every night to see this segment, and more to the point it would make these talking heads very twitchy after a while. They would be afraid to say anything that might put them on the spot with commentary on the utter stupidity of what they said. This is accountability—being held accountable by what you say, or print. If it’s not factual and you can’t back up, saying it should be dangerous. It SHOULD snap back and hit you in the face, on prime time television.

        There could be an hour called something like “Accountability in Media” that would address lies told in the print media, again calling out authors and publications by name, and the Moron Of The Day could be part of that. People don’t know the sordid history of the NYT, of Walter Duranty covering up for the brutality of Josef Stalin by lying, through that newspaper, about the millions being starved to death by Stalin. Just uncovering the participation of the NYT in Leftist atrocities over the past century or so would make for really interesting viewing, and there couldn’t really be much legal pushback because the facts are there.

        It would take balls and a backbone to say “We’re not racist. We’re not saying Joy Reid is stupid because she is black. We’re saying she would be just as stupid if she were white. We don’t associate skin color with stupidity, or dishonesty—we have plenty of white liars and dunces to discuss, and we will. Stay tuned.”

        We need to take on the Agenda Media, by identification and by name. We need to stop the weasel wording of “mainstream media” which implies that they represent “mainstream” America, and “legacy media” is too vague for a lot of people to understand, mostly because it doesn’t mean anything. We need to break their hold on American thinking and beliefs.

        There is no more fragile foundation than one built on easily disproved lies and innuendo, But it takes a platform not only ready and able to point out that the emperor has no clothes but that he is butt-ugly and has three nipples.

  6. Amazona October 6, 2021 / 2:18 pm

    As you can see by my posts I am not only convinced that the so-called “vaccine” is dangerous if not deadly I think the government is complicit in developing it so quickly and then demanding that it be forced on everyone.

    When I think of the inevitable explosions when this all comes out, I have to consider the blowback onto Donald Trump. There is no way that the Dems are going to accept responsibility for this without going back to “It’s All Trump’s Fault”.

    A bigger man than Trump would get out in front of this and make a formal, well-written prime time statement where he would take responsibility for listening to Fauci, believing the lies about masks and “social distancing” and accepting the idea that as president he had to seek out experts in their fields and listen to their advice. And he would say it was the biggest mistake of his life, he regrets it even though looking back he doesn’t know what he could have done differently because he acted on the information given to him by so-called experts he should have been able to have confidence in.

    He would get this out there and then move on, to talk about how the current administration has access to the same data that the public is starting to learn, yet it is ignoring it and risking killing or injuring millions of Americans because it refuses to give up its grip on controlling the people. He wouldn’t have to go into all the details that are coming out about the chemicals in the “vaccine” or the science behind its defects, but he could and should talk about the fact that information about the possible dangers of the drug are being hidden, while government-complicit media are actively lying about the truth of information people are trying to share.

    He could, and should, just say things like “How many people have died as a direct result of getting these shots? We don’t know—-and we SHOULD know. Why don’t we know? Because this administration, and its lapdog press and social media friends, are trying to hide that information. How many people are crippled by side effects like blood clots or enlarged hearts that may kill them in the future? We don’t know, and we should know.” And so on.

    He doesn’t have the bully pulpit of the presidency, but he does have the bully pulpit of being Donald Trump. And he should be out there taking a stand. Every drug we see advertised on television has a list of possible side effects and warnings, but this “vaccine” doesn’t. Why not? He should lay it all out, saying he is not denying that the shots might help some people but that the questions are too serious to ignore—–and if the “vaccine” does not really impart protection then there is nothing to lose by calling a halt to its use at least till it is adequately tested.

    There are many reasons for him to do something like this—-civic duty, moral responsibility and political expediency to name some. He IS the one who pushed the fast development of this drug, he IS the one who touted it and encouraged people to get it, he IS the one who presented Fauci as the expert we should listen to. It’s going to come back on him anyway, with facts and with lying skanks like Psaki inventing things, so now is the time to act—before we poison millions of children, destroying their futures by burdening them with blood clots, enlarged hearts and so on.

Seems coordinated to me. Never underestimate the Left’s evil … if they have to throw one of theirs under the bus they will in a heartbeat to further an agenda. These are people who have no morals or decency.

        Looking at her comments a little more closely, it seems that she thinks it is not OK for Facebook to suppress and censor information because it should be the government doing this.

    It’s all about your health. Big Pharma and the US Government are very concerned about your well being and hope to keep you safe. And in that effort, a new remedy is now out for Covid complications so run right out to your nearest bank and see if you qualify for a loan.

    A five-day course of Merck’s experimental COVID-19 drug, molnupiravir, costs $17.74 to produce but the company is charging the Biden administration $712 for the same amount.

    Re: Covid … why don’t we just let Darwin’s theory play out? It would be much better for future generations to get rid of the weak now.

        They are the main benefactors of not living by Darwin’s theory. If in fact the strong do survive, and the weak perish, then they wouldn’t even be around.

    Democrats in the media seem surprised by the fact that if you threaten someone’s livelihood, you can force compliance. Who would have thunk it? But Trump was the fascist, always remember that.

      I’m amazed, though, how many people are quitting their jobs rather than be forced to take a vaccine that they either don’t need or don’t want.

        That is a positive trend

      • Amazona October 7, 2021 / 8:14 pm

        Or maybe that scares them as they start to learn how much the government has been hiding, which leads to the inevitable question of “why”. Every drug ad on TV is upfront about listing possible side effects, even when they include possible death, yet to hear those adamantly pushing this “vaccine” on us there are none associated with it.

        And even through this coverup information is coming out about myocarditis, blood clots and side effects of both. This coverup is not going to collapse—it is going to explode.

      It’s not just Afghanis refusing to properly use toilets. I have written here before about going into a brand new Super Walmart in a nice neighborhood in Denver and feeling that I had wandered into a 3rd World country. Every toilet was full to overflowing with urine, feces and toilet paper, as if no one understood how to flush. Toilet paper was strewn all over the floors. In the store, loud Mexican music was blasting from several radios while adults visited and their children literally trashed the store. They pulled things off shelves, opened boxes, dragged clothes off racks and piled them up and played in them. It was a very purposeful F-You to America, by Mexicans who were probably here illegally.

      When I heard someone complaining about automatic-flush toilets, I commented that they were really Mexican toilets, because evidently Mexicans don’t know what the lever on the side of the tank is for. She clutched her pearls and gasped in horror, but the people who heard this chimed in with their own stories.

    Getting that time of year where I like to have pea soup

    I’m partial to crockpot chili this time of year — all throughout the winter, actually.

    • Amazona October 7, 2021 / 8:11 pm

      I like pea soup better than chili, if it has plenty of ham shank in it and a good shake or two of Tabasco. Chili is OK, but I can keep going back to the pot of pea soup for days if I am smart enough to make enough and one or maybe two days of chili is plenty.

      I’ve never associated pea soup with any kind of cheese, though. Freshly baked bread or cornbread, yes.

      Tucker played the clip tonight of Biden during one of the debates last fall in which he said if Trump had been doing his job ALL THE PEOPLE who died of COVID would still be alive. Tucker then went on to cite figures that more people have died of COVID since Biden was inaugurated than died in all of 2020, EVEN THOUGH THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE POPULATION HAS EITHER BEEN VACCINATED OR HAD COVID. Let that sink in for a moment.

  14. Cluster October 8, 2021 / 8:46 am

    Let this sink in …

    Joe Biden said Thursday the ‘bigger story’ isn’t that thousands of people are losing their jobs, but that the new mandates are increasing the percentage of Americans in the workforce who are vaccinated against COVID-19. ‘These requirements work,’ Biden lauded during a speech at a Clayco construction site in Elk Grove Village, Illinois. The new Executive Order mandates that all businesses with at least 100 employees require those workers to provide proof of vaccination or be subject to compulsory weekly testing.

    Where are you Watson, Casper, Rico, Freddy? Please enlighten us again about how tolerant, open, and free thinking the progressive democrats are. You are all ignorant weak pieces of shit undeserving of the air you breathe.

      Mexico, if looked at objectively, is richer than the United States, in that it has massive reserves of oil, gas and minerals. It has a more temperate climate, thousands of miles of beaches, and should be a productive country where people can work and make a good living. Yet most of it is a hellhole, with people barely getting by, uneducated and without prospects for better lives. This is because of its government, which is one which consolidates power in the hands of a few

      • Cluster October 8, 2021 / 10:58 am

        No question about it … Mexico is a beautiful country with all the natural resources for it to be the richest, most desirable country in the world to live in but because of the violent cartels, including the government, it’s a hell hole. And I will point out that it is all because of misogyny and brown supremacy too.

    Last month it was reported that the office of Kamala Harris would be expanding its team of senior advisers in an attempt to help the VP when it comes to public relations and likability.

    The new advisers might have done if these videos of Harris speaking to a group of students about the Space Council are any indication:

    So again I am in need of someone to explain this progressively damaged world to me. On one hand it’s apparently ok to teach our children about sexual positions and gender fluidity, and in the name of equity we are releasing violent criminals from jail, yet on the other if an adult woman gets a little flirtatious in a bar she could lose her job??? I guess this is what happens when we allow inferior men to govern the country, right Casper?

    The 24-year-old woman who was filmed ‘grinding’ with NFL head coach Urban Meyer has been placed under investigation by her employer and may lose her job – while Meyer, who is married with three children, will likely away from the scandal scot-free. What’s more, the woman, who has yet to be named and works at an Ohio-based marketing company, is afraid to leave her home after facing abuse after the video went viral on the internet last week, her mother told USA Today Thursday. ‘I’m worried for her emotional status right now,’ the woman’s concerned mother told the outlet’s sports faction. New Horizon Media Group, the firm where the woman works, has begun an internal investigation within the company into the female employee, after the video her dancing with the Jacksonville Jaguars head coach emerged on social media and quickly went viral. The video, shot at Urban Chophouse in Columbus, Ohio, also shows the coach appearing to fondle the woman from behind. The company says the investigation’s purpose is to discern whether or not the scandal surrounding their female employee will effect operations at their company – which does business with Urban Chophouse – which is owned by Meyer.

      But I thought twerking was cool. When it is shown on TV there should be a warning, I guess: “The twerkers shown here are professional exhibitionists paid to engage in disgusting behavior in public. Anyone else attempting this kind of behavior may be fined, fired, or otherwise punished.”

      The “scandal” of course is only about the single woman, not the married father of three who evidently encouraged whatever it was that got her bosses looking for fainting couches.

    I find it rather hilarious listening to Democrats talk about creating jobs when in reality their constituents simply do not want to work.

    Massive civil disobedience is required right now … pull your kids out of school, start keeping cash at home and out of the bank, don’t be friends with Democrats, don’t travel, don’t frequent corporations for anything; shopping, dining etc. and instead frequent the small local business, don’t go to concerts, don’t go to movies, stop buying from Amazon, stop watching Netflix, and of course never listen to their insane decrees and simply dismiss them as being anything other than a fascist reprobate.

    • Amazona October 9, 2021 / 12:41 pm

      I think it is past time for us to stop participating in the destruction of America and feeding the companies that are contributing to it. I admit, it is hard. I am on the road a lot and use a credit card for nearly all expenses—-I don’t want to carry cash and I like the convenience of not hiking across a gas station lot to pay cash and guess how much fuel I am going to need. Aside from Amazon, which I am using less, I do support local businesses, don’t go to concerts and refuse to go to politically Left movies, don’t use Netflix and ignore everything the Left says.

      Speaking of credit cards—-last week I had my Frontier Airlines card, though Barclay Bank, shut down on me—-again. It’s usually because being in a different state will trigger a panic attack, sometimes because the chip doesn’t work, but in general the card sucks. Now it has a balance of $3.00 not due for a month. The reason? They needed me to confirm a charge of $66.00 at a filling station from January 6, 2021. Keep in mind this conversation was on October 6, 2021. I went through several Barclay Bank robots who could only read from scripts—I was driving, so had time for this nonsense—-and just kept being told that this was part of their fraud prevention system. No one seemed to grasp the concept that if they were, in October, verifying a small charge from January, that meant that if the card had been stolen the thief had had ten months to use it. Huh? “What if I refuse to verify it because it was TEN MONTHS AGO and I buy fuel at least twice a week?” Well, they would have to shut down that card and issue a new one. When I pointed out that I have had two new cards issued since then—one lost card and one where the chip wouldn’t work—-so the card I am using now is not even the same number as the one that now has them so worried, it was the same lack of comprehension. I finally said “Fine—-send me another new card, I’ll put it in a drawer and charge just enough on it to keep it active till I’ve used up my miles, and let Capital One get my business.” It’s bad enough that using Frontier miles means flying on Frontier, but learning that their “fraud prevention program” is ten months behind does not make me confident.

      It’s downright scary to see how incompetent our financial systems can be. That, and the new IRS regs the Dems are trying to push through, are making me reconsider the Folger’s can buried in the back yard as my new banking strategy.
