Randoland is a Twitter account which details the spending on those gigantic bills they pass out Congress. Example:
The Department of Health and Human Services awarded $1.4 million to Florida State University for a CRT-related program called “TRANSFORMING HEALTH EQUITY RESEARCH IN INTEGRATED PRIMARY CARE: ANTIRACISM AS A DISRUPTIVE INNOVATION”
This is, of course, complete drivel. It is make-work and a complete waste of money – but only from our perspective. From the Left’s perspective, it is money well spent.
You see, what the Left gets out of this is yet more propaganda pushing their views and people with a vested interest in keeping it all going. After all, $1.4 million goes pretty fast. Next year or the year after, the people studying anti-racism as a disruptive innovation will either have to get a grant to provide more anti-racism or they’ll have to get a job. Guess what they’ll choose? And you can rely on it that if people are paid to fight racism they will never run out of racism to fight.
Knock on benefits for the Left here are donations (the people getting these grants will want to keep Democrats in office) and conversion…actual or feigned (and it doesn’t matter to the Democrats which it is: both are just fine): the more this stuff is out there, the more people feel like they have to go along with it. And yet others just decide to get in on the payday and find some racism of their own to fight against.
And this is a huge problem for us – there is so much money flowing out of government and into Leftist hands that we’re a bit overwhelmed. How can we compete with an institution which passes out trillions of dollars, almost entirely un-audited?
The answer is that we can’t. So, we must get in on the act.
It will prove impossible – at least any time soon – to get the Congressional GOP on board with cutting this kind of spending. But I do believe we can get them on board with spending money on us. Sure, I know: long term getting rid of the spending is best. But that’s a pipe dream at present…so, lets stick our hand out. Let’s provide millions of dollars for Conservative studies and programs (which would have the benefit of being something useful). A few million for lesbian poetry reading here, a few million for a laudatory biopic of Pinochet there. See where I’m going? The reason we have gay Superman is because we’re paying for it – so lets pay for a Superman who b*** slaps Commies. Guess which will be more popular, anyway?
That train derailment in Ohio has picked up the hashtag #OhioChernobyl – which does seem a little melodramatic to me. That is, I don’t think its as bad as some are claiming. On the other hand, it is clearly pretty bad. And it is also a tremendously telegenic disaster…it is the sort of thing which would get eyeballs glues to screens. But nobody is covering. Not in any big sense. Some people hadn’t heard about until they saw a social media posts on it. This just shows you that what is in the news is carefully curated. I can only assume that a massive train derailment and chemical spill isn’t in the script right now and so it is just being ignored. And that begs the question: what other big stories are just being ignored because they don’t fit the script? That is, which don’t help Democrats advance their Narrative?
Team Pudding Brain has gotten trigger happy over balloons of late – I guess they got their focus group results on letting the first wander across the country and it wasn’t good. Personally, I just don’t know – I certainly can’t believe the government on it, nor the MSM (which is a mere arm of government). The stories of aliens are probably exaggerated.
The military is having trouble recruiting. The brass says its just because kids are afraid of getting hurt but we all know that’s a lie. Its about the woke stuff. The active strength of the Army is under 500,000. In a nation of 330 million and 4.3 million men coming of military age annually, there there is no possible way we can miss recruitment targets…unless the men just don’t want to serve. And why should anyone? You don’t get to spend nearly enough time getting trained. You have to kowtow to woke garbage all day long – and your career in the military can be ruined if you say something that someone claims offends them. Then, if you go get into a fight, you’re commanded by timeserving cowards who don’t care how many of you die, but who will see to it you’re charged for war crimes if you kill the enemy the wrong way. Screw that! I would never tell a kid to join up these days. And I’m sure plenty of fathers and grandfathers are telling the kids, “its not what is used to be; stay out”.
And that begs the question: what other big stories are just being ignored because they don’t fit the script? That is, which don’t help Democrats advance their Narrative?
Oh I don’t know. Maybe the Biden family selling access to Americas resources and classified information to our adversaries for personal profit. That might be a story.
Re: the Military. Would you fight to preserve this current union? I wouldn’t.
In 50 years guns haven’t changed much. People and the culture have changed a lot. I wonder if Democrats will figure that one out.
I see a lot of anti white rhetoric out there, and a strong anti white media narrative. Should I be offended?
I wonder if Americans will ever grow tired of their ruling class blaming guns for their failures? The ruling class has gutted our manufacturing base and along with it, millions of good paying jobs, they harp incessantly on superficial divisions of race and ethnicity, do not protect our borders and allow an invasion of millions of foreigners, allow lethal drugs to enter our country in mass quantities, mock Christian values, marginalize Fathers, tell men they can become women, strip women of their athletic achievements, and promote people based on the right ethnicity and group think.
This is the most fucked up country in the world, and what happened at Michigan State is entirely the fault of 50 years of hate, division, and failure on behalf of the ruling class and the media that covers for them.
Does there have to be any more F****ING evidence of the complete and abysmal failure of everything Democrat???????
Twenty-three schools in Baltimore are failing their students, according to a new analysis – with not one student at the institutions reaching the required level in math.
NOT ONE STUDENT. And I guarantee you, these “teachers” probably make 6 figures a year. Now tell me, how many of these kids will grow up either drug addicted, or taking a gun to Michigan State University??? Simply because they have no life skills thanks to our ruling class. But it’s the guns fault. I hate these F****ING people.
OK, this is pretty funny.
Have you all seen the “train” of Starlink satellites in the night sky? We had been visiting our granddaughter and her family Sunday afternoon, and arrived home around 7PM, just after dark. Our mailbox is on a county road about 3/10 of a mile from our house. I got out to get the mail and just happened to look up before I got back in the car. This is what I saw.
I have not seen those and that’s pretty cool. I like how Elon told Zelensky to F off when asked to deploy starlink in their ruling class war.
There shouldn’t be anything to worry about here … no need for our stellar Transportation Sec or the President to say anything. After all, that county voted for Trump
‘Don’t tell me it’s safe’: Terrified East Palestine residents demand to know the truth after THOUSANDS of fish go belly up, livestock starts dropping dead and nasty cough spreads after train carrying toxic chemicals derailed
Maybe this had something to do with it. https://ens-newswire.com/trump-removes-oil-train-safety-brake-requirement/
Good catch Casper, it’s Trumps fault. As everything is. Now run along and go play with the cool kids
ROFL – their theme song is I Can’t Get it Out of My Head…they just can’t let Trump go!
For all his preening about how great his life is these days poor Cappy does seem to still feel the need to prowl the Internet looking for anti-Trump fodder for his obsession. And what could fit it better than some sleazy rag claiming “TRUMP DID THIS !!!”
Not a federal agency. Not after extensive research and expert recommendations. No sirree, folks, that decision had big orange fingerprints all over it! Trump sat there in the Oval Office and thought “you know, today I think I’ll single-handedly strip some safety regulations from train cargo shipments”.
But here’s a question Casper evidently didn’t ask—did this change contribute to the crash? To any of the crashes? Proof, please.
The Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act, called the FAST Act, required further analysis of the electronically controlled pneumatic brake requirements, including physical testing, to improve general knowledge and understanding of how much more effective ECP brakes are in comparison to other brake systems. This Act was passed during an Obama term, which would, to be consistent, make him wholly responsible for the inclusion of this mandatory analysis.
It also required the Department of Transport, DOT, to determine whether the electronically controlled pneumatic brake requirements are justified based on the expected costs and benefits.
The updated RIA incorporated new findings from testing this type of brakes conducted by the Federal Railroad Administration, and reviewed by the National Academy of Sciences. It incorporated recommendations from the U.S. Government Accountability Office, and updated costs and benefits of the electronically controlled pneumatic brake provision based on current economic conditions.
The department’s analysis shows that the expected costs of requiring electronically controlled pneumatic brakes would be “significantly higher than the expected benefits” of the requirement, and therefore the FAST Act required DOT to repeal the electronically controlled pneumatic brake requirement.
The law still allows certain High Hazard Flammable Unit Trains to operate using electronically controlled pneumatic braking systems.
Too bad Obama, when he personally implemented this Act, couldn’t see far enough ahead to recognize any future developments resulting from its mandatory evaluation process.
All of which leads us to questions we have already had about Casper: Is he just too bone-deep stupid to process information, or too lazy to even try? Not that it matters—the end result is the same either way. Smug mental sludge
They can not lol. Have you watched MSNBC lately?? Trump leads every segment, and the walls “are still closing in” YCMTSU
“Smug mental sludge”
Best description yet!
Looks like the derailment was caused by an overheated wheel bearing. It had nothing to do with brakes.
Well, obviously once Trump changed the regs on automatic brakes he fiddled with the chemical makeup of the brake lubricants or ordered some elliptical bearings on sale or something. That wily old fella, always tinkering with something!
We joke about the Left being a religion, but it isn’t funny, and as time goes on we see more and more of what can only be described as religious fanaticism. It’s a belief system that is so overpowering it literally shapes their views on EVERYTHING. The dogma is simple but controlling. Just look at this recent little exchange. An accident happened and before any real investigation could take place the belief system fanatics were howling about TrumpTrumpTrumpTrumpTrump. Newswire was citing an AP hit piece (they don’t even pretend to do real journalism over at the AP any more) and of course poor little Casper, sniffing the rear ends of his idols, got a whiff of something anti-Trump and waddled over here to show it off.
It’s a religion. It has its rites (riots and “protests”) and it has its sacrament (abortion). It has its high priests and priestesses and clergy. And it has its evangelicals, who haunt sites like this preaching its gospel.
One of the most astounding revelations from the press conference (watch below) was that the train was not classified as carrying hazardous chemicals.
“I learned today from the PUCO [Public Utilities Council of Ohio] that this train was not considered a high hazardous material train,” DeWine said. As a result, the railroad was not required to notify anyone in Ohio about what the train was carrying.
Forty, you don’t bring anything intelligent to the table. You’re an absolute Statist moron who will regurgitate anything that lays blame on the other side on any issue. You’re transparently partisan, stupid, and boring so there is zero reason to engage you in any conversation.
Good things are happening in AZ in terms of securing elections and stopping the cheaters
3. The ballot images and system log files from each tabulator are recorded on a secure write-once, read-many media with clear chain of custody and posted on the Secretary of State’s website free of charge to the public within twenty-four hours after the close of the polls; ….. The US Constitution gives State Legislatures plenary authority to oversee elections. Senator Rogers says the Legislature does not need approval from the Governor for this law to take effect.
On his radio show either yesterday or Friday Bongino played an audio clip of your new governor. She’s an illiterate, unintelligent nitwit.
As noted before, all Democrat leaders are mere puppets…people put into office by wirepullers because they are pliable.
This relates to the hyperbolic emoting about “conflicts” and so on within the GOP. This could be due to efforts to discredit the GOP but also because on the Left failure to bend the knee to the official dogma is simply not tolerated. To a rigid and totally controlled system, the sometimes rowdy display of independent thought as seen with Republicans expressing their own views seems to be frightening, or at least alien. The Left might be genuinely confused by the spectacle of differing perspectives and the willingness to explain them and defend them, or it might just see this as something that can be weaponized in a propaganda campaign, but in either case it is the antithesis of Leftist obedience to its masters.
When we step back a little for a wider view, we see that this is all part of the same pattern. It is about objecting to freedom of religion, about fighting free speech, about Leftist groups like the J6 Committee trying to criminalize freedom of speech and assembly, so naturally there is going to be a reaction to the fact that we, as a party that reflects a political philosophy, are going to experience differing opinions. It’s the basis for the burgeoning industry of “fact-checking” and “disinformation” organizations. Independent thought is just not tolerated by the Party of Tolerance (//sarc off) or by the Party of Diversity (//sarc off). This is the party that tolerates nothing outside its bubble and accepts no diversity that is not compliant with its narrative.
For examples, look to my link in my previous post.
You’re being too kind Spook lol
So in essence, likely to be a career leftist politician.
Mom Who Was Booted From Education Board, Called ‘White Supremacist’ After Defending Constitution Shares Her Story
Well worth reading
Anyone who says, they’re not comfortable with the US Constitution or the Bill of Rights should be sent to live in a country where they don’t exists. I’d even vote for taxpayer funding of their transportation out of the US. Anyone who says you are personally responsible for the actions of your ancestors should be forced to examine their own history first and be called out on every sin in their family tree, instead of pointing their finger and criticizing others.
According to these people, I am not even responsible for the acts of my ancestors (who came to this country after the end of the Civil War) but for the actions of people unrelated to me, whom I never met or heard of, simply because we share an acceptably low melanin level.
It’s the same twisted mentality that says if a man commits rape his child should be killed.
The American Democrat Left is 100% a religion. People like Forty and Casper worship their “leaders”, never depart from the doctrine, and consider those who oppose them to be evil. This is a religious cult much like the fundamentalist Mormons. Climate change and abortion are sacrosanct and to never be questioned by their followers. And they obey.
1. The belief in and reverence for a supernatural power or powers, regarded as creating and governing the universe.
2. A particular variety of such belief, especially when organized into a system of doctrine and practice.
The left wants to view religion strictly within the confines of the first definition, belief in the supernatural, which would remove what they do from consideration. The second definition clearly puts most everything they do within context of being a religion. We must be bold in this assertion, giving all of their doctrine the same treatment they give to any other religious belief that falls under the first definition. That they adhere to atheist practices should not give what they profess, a backdoor out of being regarded as religious dogma.
In their rush to blame the train derailment on Trump, shouldn’t we be asking these geniuses why they did not restore those regulations in the last two years that Trump has been out of office??? They had total control of the government, and could have prevented this, but they didn’t. They have blood on their hands.
Of course. Rail is interstate commerce and interstate industries which can pose risk to both populations and environment, so the federal gov’t definitely has a role. And what the Trump admin did played no role and had been debated and studied for years. But more importantly, it is just a small potential problem with an infrastructure that is approx. 160 years old. There are lots of problems with many of the rails across the country. I hope some of that $1 trillion infrastructure money is spent on rail
Clean your guns and have them on the ready …
“To me the big question is how are we going to go through this transformation…it cannot be gradual, it has to be driven by a certain shock that will happen”
These motherfuckers are telling us what they’re doing and too many people are just acting like sheep. They want a one world government, aka the new liberal order and it doesn’t bode well for Faith based, God fearing nationalists. So it’s either them or me. One of us is dying.
I think they may be misunderstanding the direction such a shock would drive Americans. They assume it would turn us into meek compliant sheep, and certainly on the coasts it probably would, but I think in the Heartland it would be signal that the gloves are on the ice and there are no more rules. The uprising of Wyoming voters didn’t seem to call attention to the presence of a sleeping giant that might be hard to wake but impossible to stop once it stirs.
I’ve been thinking the same thing. There’s a level of evil at play not seen since the mid 20th century, and it’s permeated groups and organizations that used to be trustworthy, ie., churches, schools, media, law enforcement, the military, and the courts. I sure wouldn’t want to be a kid growing up today.
I’ve had many people comment to me that everything going on just doesn’t feel right, and these are not all conservatives either. My neighbor is a Biden voter and she made the comment the other day that things are not going well and she just can’t understand it. Academia and Media are 90% responsible for the chaos and those institutions need to be completely reformed.
The web site has gone a little wonky so I don’t know where this will end up but it is supposed to be part of the discussion on the upcoming “shock”. It sounds too good to be true, but you have to wonder if this is the “shock” that would push this country, at least, off the bubble.
The U.S. Supreme Court will decide whether it will take up a case that could overturn the 2020 elections and make representatives who voted to confirm the election ineligible to hold office in the future. The case, Brunson v. Alma S. Adams; et al, sues the members of Congress who voted against the proposed 10-day audit of the 2020 elections, alleging that doing so and then certifying the election regardless was a breach of their oath of office.
If the Supreme Court rules against Congress, it could potentially remove a sitting president and vice president, along with the members of Congress involved, and deem them unfit to hold office again at any level of U.S. government. It would allegedly also give the Supreme Court the ability to authorize the swearing-in of the rightful president and vice president.
I think it is essential to start a serious conversation about the legal responsibilities of our elected officials—in this case, our legislators. Is it really too much to ask to demand that they do their jobs? I have been saying for years that the automatic rubber-stamping of clearly uncertifiable vote tallies made that “certification” worthless and so far I haven’t seen or heard of a single public voice discussing the need to treat certification as a serious legal responsibility with penalties for violation.
I think removal, or even just sanctioning, of members of Congress who violated their responsibility if not the word-for-word text of their oaths of office, for treating the certification of election votes so casually would be a major shock. Think about it—-what other act by Congress has an impact on our nation, on its governance and its very future, on the lives of its citizens, as great as selecting our president? And this, the most significant and important act asked of Congress, is treated so casually it hardly seems to rise to the level of consideration. The attitude of state legislatures, and of Congress, seems to be that this process is a mere formality with no liability, no demands for investigation, no room for discussion, and is just a meaningless ceremony.
Hell I’ve read that many reps vote by proxy and don’t even show up. And the 2020 should be over turned. If you listen to the media on this, including Fox, you’ll always hear “there was no widespread voter fraud” which is true and a distraction. We all know it was “targeted fraud”, not widespread. All they needed were five swing states, NV, AZ, GA, PA, and WI, and that got them.
They also reserve the right to very narrowly define “fraud” and completely avoid the corollary issue of rigging the election by restricting the flow of essential information about one candidate while flooding the nation with hostile and dishonest claims about the other.
I think they have mostly focused on denying voter machine fraud, because that’s pretty easy to do. Without free access to all the machines, there is no way to absolutely confirm what was witnessed, and the witnesses are simply disregarded.
But they refuse to admit that flooding a state with unsolicited ballots is a mechanism for fraud—especially when associated acts like extending voting well beyond the statutory limit, refusing to require signatures and signature matching and allowing ballot harvesting dumping tens of thousands of ballots into unsupervised collection boxes are all simply dismissed or ignored.
They refuse to admit that violation of statutes is a strong indication of fraud—last-minute changing of voting rules in violation of statute or even state constitutions, arbitrary changing of cutoff dates. lack of chain of custody for ballots, accepting ballots without signatures, accepting ballots without time stamps, etc.
They just blithely dismiss all of this, focus exclusively on voting machines, and announce “there is no proof of fraud”. And yes, you are right—when there IS proof it is accompanied by the disclaimer of it not being “widespread”.
It’s like the pathetic excuse people like Bill Barr tried to hide behind—“yes, fraud, BUT NOT ENOUGH TO CHANGE THE OUTCOME”. ???????? Who says?
Remember all those people who signed sworn affidavits, under penalty of perjury, about things they saw regarding handling of ballots? The guy hired to haul a truckload of ballots from one state to another? The people who saw boxes of ballots being unloaded in the middle of the night at a counting site?
What ever happened to those people? I’m pretty sure if any of their stories had been disproved we would have heard about it. We would have gotten detailed gleeful accounts. But we didn’t. They just disappeared.
And Democrats are a fanatical religious cult
According to Ball, she criticized Hillary Clinton on the air ahead of the 2016 election and was ultimately called into her boss’s office where she was told all future comments about Hillary would have to be approved by the network president.
Talk about becoming unhinged.
Question – what has Americas Ruling Class done to secure elementary schools in the wake of Uvalde?? Anyone??
The thing is, it would not be hard to secure schools. But it would divert funds from the union funding of always-increasing administrators and essential staff like “Diversity Officer”.
Install a system that will lock all classroom doors from a single control. Also isolate segments of long hallways with auto-locking doors. (This is easy. When my mother lived in a high-rise assisted living facility they had fire alarms all the time, and when one went off doors in the hallways closed and locked, to isolate segments in case there was really a fire and not just another smoking toaster.)
If they really wanted to get creative, every segment that is isolated could then be bombarded with lights turned off, strobe lighting activated and ear-piercing sirens to disorient the shooter. (My personal preference would be to subject the shooter to Whitney Houston songs at high volume, but that’s just me.)
What we see is total bewilderment about the concept of first isolating a problem and then looking for solutions. The Leftist political “solution” is to go out into society at large and try to control what weapons might be available. But real problem solving identifies the problem (here, a crazy person with a gun, in a school, wanting to shoot students and teachers) and then look at how to address it.
Obviously this would start with restricting access to schools. Then it would be to provide safe havens for students and teachers, where no shooter could get to them. Then it would be to figure out how to take control of the shooter. Broken down, each element doesn’t seem that complicated. But none of them have the emotional gratification of feeding into anti-gun frenzy or political expedience.
And every school shooting—every mass shooting—-is an important addition to the narrative. The Left has never fretted about how many lives have to be lost to achieve a goal, and they’re not going to start now by reducing the number of school fatalities.
Besides, there is more important work to be done in schools, like putting porn in the libraries and pushing CRT
Is it just me, or does it seem like every time the ruling class is in a bit of a pickle, there’s a mass shooting??? Is that too conspiracy theory?? lol
All good and easy suggestions to secure schools. But that’s not their focus.
In the Blue States and cities, we’re just seeing more and more of this – the full power of the government brought to bear against anyone who dissents from the Leftist Narrative. Remember: the process is the punishment. Even if they legally can’t do anything to you, they can make your life miserable and that is enough to warn off most people.
The really sad thing is there isn’t much we can do about it – if we don’t have legal power in an area, then the Left can do whatever it wants, even if it is against the law because the Left never punishes its own, and certainly not for oppressing the Right. Even if we got Federal power and passed a law making it a federal crime for agents of States and localities to violate civil rights, that would backfire on as as soon as a Democrat was back in the White House – they’d essentially accuse every Republican office holder of violating civil rights. Our only hope is that all of this will eventually work to alienate the people of the blue States from the Democrats.
MSNBC has yet to cover the train derailment, explosion, and death in OH. Weird coming from people who profess to care about the environment and poor people. They did find time however to cover the Turkey earthquake and how if affected those poor people.
Update – they have covered the story and the coverage was actually pretty good but oddly enough, not one bit of criticism for the administrations lack of attention.
MAGA has never advocated that all “regulations are bad” – but I don’t expect you to understand anything about MAGA. You’re too blinded by WOKE
Well of course, because ALL regulations are the same, aren’t they? You’re a moron
Perhaps give us some examples of good regulations. Donald Trump insisted that for any regulation, two others would have to go. He didn’t seem to care which two, just as long as they were banished. See, that’s the deep thinking that got Trump in trouble with his MAGA base.
He didn’t seem to care which two, just as long as they were banished.
See, that’s the deep thinking that proves that people like you have no interest at all in the truth. You just make this sh**t up. “didn’t seem to care” is just an admission that you don’t know and can’t know.
As for your silly lie getting him in trouble with the MAGA base, that’s another strange distorted perception unrelated to the truth.
Which regulations did he reverse? Why were they important? Should they have been retained? Do you agree that it was OK to have them in place, as de facto laws, when they were not legislated by Congress? What is the ratio of productive regulations to those which inhibit liberty and economic growth?
Democrats elect (install) their best and brightest, don’t they?
John Fetterman checks himself into Walter Reed for clinical depression: Dem Senator receives in-patient treatment after condition became ‘severe’ in recent weeks
Fetterman was always just a human sacrifice. The party thought he would get a lot of the pity vote and some backlash voting after claiming discrimination for the disabled, but knowing that once he was sworn in and shown off for a few weeks as acting like a Senator he could be replaced by the governor with someone who could never have been elected on his or her own.
It’s the same basic back door tactic being used to foist “the first woman president” on us
So it appears as though Biden shot down a $12 balloon with a $400K missile. In a non cult like world, this would be the source of a lot of great late night comedy.
Actually TWO $400K missiles. The first one MISSED!
It’s like the Keystone Cops and the Gang who couldn’t shoot straight teamed up.
