Twitter started a “Community Notes” function which allows third parties to attach a statement to Tweets making certain claims of fact. As far as I know, any account can be subjected to such notes and there is a process for doing so…and then everyone can comment and vote on the Community Note. The main thing is that its beautiful – after years of Right Twitter getting banned for posting facts, Left Twitter is now finding that when they make the egregious lie, someone puts a Community Note on it – and the best are when they quote back to the Lefty their own previous words! The Left is, of course, going ballistic about this; often with the usual threat of leaving Twitter but as we on the Right found over the years, there’s nothing better than Twitter for fast-paced commentary with a big reach. It is still a relatively small thing – it doesn’t stop them from lying – but it does put out there the fact that they are, indeed, liars.

The newest St George Floyd of Fentanyl has dropped – a lunatic named Jordan Neely. He was, as per usual in such, a bum and drug addict with a long rap sheet (42 priors and when he was killed he was wanted for assault). On the NYC subway he started acting like an aggressive, lunatic drug addict and so a former Marine did what any decent man would do – he took him down. Because Neely was a drug addict this ended up killing him. Naturally, the Usual Suspects are all out there shouting “racism” and “no justice, no peace” while the MSM – pretty much all of it, including the parts you might think aren’t far Left fanatics – are trying to paint Neely as some sort of street artist beloved by all; failing that, they are trying to work up sympathy over the fact that Neely’s mother was quite brutally murdered some years back – as if that excuses being a violent, drug addicted lunatic. We’re all waiting for the Manhattan DA to charge the Marine with murder…and its 50/50 on conviction. A lot of Manhattanites are getting fed up with the rampant crime and disorder in NYC but they also know that if the Powers That Be want to punish a jury for coming to the “wrong” verdict, it will be done; their names and addresses would be “leaked” so that lunatics could hound them.

Joe Manchin looks ever more like electoral toast next year in West Virginia. He’s nobody to blame but himself. He could have triangulated himself into a life seat by ditching the Democrats to become an independent who caucuses with the GOP. He’d have had to do this some years back, but if he had done it the Senate would still be split and none of Biden’s legislative agenda would have passed. But instead he stuck with the Party and in return for just some really small time pork nobody in WV cares about, he empowered the far Left in the Biden Admin to totally screw over blue collar West Virginia.

Joe Biden is monumentally unpopular. I’m starting to wonder if now so unpopular that even a weak and divided GOP might have a shot next year? I’m still doubtful – especially as the MSM will prop Biden’s corpse up if they have to. I’ll use as my marker this: if RFK stays in and score 20% or more in the NH primary, then Joe is done. And it would be funny as heck if its a like father, like son replay of 1968.

Jesse Kelly has been ringing the alarm bell on what the Establishment plans for Trump – the Manhattan indictment is just the start. They are going to go nuclear on him with all the really bad stuff pouring on if he wins the GOP nomination. Now, if Trump fails in the primary, nothing to really worry about but if he emerges then its a problem. And not just an electoral math problem: if they can really destroy Trump with a series of bogus indictments, then they will destroy everyone who challenges them. Hate Trump all you want, but you must stand up for him in this matter…the charges are all lies. He’s being persecuted, not prosecuted. And it may come down to we have to nominate and elect him just to make sure their effort fails.

    I’ve no idea where Tucker Carlson is with his current contract with Fox but that doesn’t stop new offers from coming in.

      They gave him an offer over at Newsmax for 200 and something million a year to run the whole news station. We’ll see what he does.

    America doesn’t have a mental health problem at all. Why just read through this recent address by a “trans” person to the SF Board of Supervisors. It’s well thought out and reasonable. She is definitely the product of teacher unions.

    ”I live in [District 6]. I hate a lot of people on this board… for the reasons that led up to Banko Brown’s death. So, often I prepare something — maybe it’s a little historical, may even be a little poetic, whatever. There’s a lot of performative people on this board who will say one thing and support Black people, homeless people, trans people, and then immediately stab you in the face — being racist, transphobic, anti-homeless. So I don’t have any words prepared today. I just want you to feel our pain. I don’t know if you can at this point, based off your policy choices, but I have to pretend you have some form of empathy left. So, I am going to spend the next minute screaming cause that is what is going on in here. That is what the trans genocide in this country, in this city, has brought me to.”

    And then the screaming began….for almost a minute. LOL

      One of the militia groups in Kurt Schlichter’s newest book, Inferno, is a trans group who make it their life’s work in recently liberated California to seek out and assassinate doctors, teachers, parents — anyone who pushed them to mutilate their bodies in the name of gender affirmation. I could actually see it happening in real life.

        You might recall that guy we talked about some while back who wanted the girls at the salon to wax his testicles because he was a “real woman” and so the ladies couldn’t possibly object. Well, credit to that guy for having the courage of his convictions: he went and had it whacked off and a they surgically created a “vagina” for him…with the slight problem being that a vagina is a complex organ which is carefully regulated by female physiology…it most emphatically isn’t a mere hole in the body…but that’s was a surgical vagina is…a hole. You know: a wound. And so the guy’s body keeps trying to heal and close the wound. The guy apparently now has a gaping wound described as something that an axe would do. The flip side of this is girls who get a surgical penis which is made by ripping off tissue from other areas of their body leaving massive damage in its wake…all to get something which doesn’t even work.

        How in hell did these procedures get approved for use on humans?

        I pointed out elsewhere that the people do these procedures aren’t doctors…they’re mechanics who know how to cut and sew, but they aren’t doctors. Doctors have grounding in philosophy and theology and so have a mental conception of not just what can be done, but what should be done. What we’ve done in our medical schools over the past few decades is turn out 10,000 Mengeles who will do anything probably mostly just to see if it works. It is hideous and future generations will condemn us just as much as we condemn those who didn’t stop the Nazis.

      Did they give her a standing ovation?

        lol I wouldn’t be surprised. That’s what passes as “intelligent discourse” now amongst teacher union students.

    I wonder how Corporate Media propaganda is so effective when viewership is so abysmal. In the ratings chart linked below, The Five pulls in most viewers in the key demo of 25-54 which totaled just 242,000 viewers. I am guessing the number of 25-54 year olds currently living in the country has to number around 60 million people at least, and yet just 242,000 of them watched The Five and this is considered a win. How in the hell does this make sense?

      The Founders risked their “lives, fortunes and sacred honor” for liberty, and subsequent generations of Americans have gradually thrown much, if not most of it away, but for the last decade or so the throwing has been on steroids. It’s as though Evil knows it has victory in its grasp and is pulling out all the stops.

        But what hit the accelerator and disabled the brakes was the ascension of the Left into the power of the presidency. I have always thought this was an amazingly strong and resilient nation, but to see the degree of erosion of its most basic principles in two short years is nothing short of frightening.

        It was also the slow and insidious creep of Leftists in our schools and federal bureaucracies. It’s become a cancer and the way back will be difficult.

    Why is it so difficult for conservatives to be optimistic and encouraged by the prospect of DeSantis as POTUS while at the same time knowing Trump needs 4 more years? This is not an either/or prospect. We can have both if we do it right.

    Pulled from Twitter … this guy nails it

    Everyone wants to know why the “Epstein Island” list has never been revealed.

    It’s bc the rabbit hole 🐇 🕳️ goes deep…

    Jeffrey Epstein was a fake billionaire. That’s why no one really knows how he got so rich.

    His island was set up to trap, compromise & blackmail influential people such as celebrities, doctors, scientists, politicians, etc., so they can force them into using their influence to put out propaganda.

    Why do you think almost all celebrities are in favor of the most insane policies ever put forth?

    Why do you think politicians do nothing to stop the destruction of America?

    Why do you think the media never reports on ANYTHING harmful to the Liberal extremist cause?

    There are many people compromised.

    Scientists told to disavow a medicine such as Ivermectin, even though it won a Nobel Prize in medicine.

    Scientists told to say masks work even though they prevent nothing.

    Scientists told to say a vaccine, with virtually no evidence, is safe and effective.

    Celebrities told to shun anyone who is “anti-vaxx”.

    Media told to vilify anyone against the “narrative”.

    Elections stolen? The media will make it not so. Vaccine deaths? The media will make it not so. Democrats laundering money in Ukraine? The media made that story go away instantly.

    Once you have the celebrities, athletes, politicians, scientists, doctors, teachers and mass media in your pocket, you control the narrative. You decide how you want the world to see things. You play with every mind in America.

    The Epstein Island intelligence operation was brilliant. It was the last piece of the puzzle that the WEF needed in order to push the 2030 agenda back on track.

    When Trump was shockingly elected in 2016, it took away 4 years that the WEF had to push their agenda. That’s why it’s suddenly ramped up into overdrive and everything is happening at once. They can’t afford another 4 lost years.

    They can’t let Trump win. I wouldn’t be surprised if they assassinated him like JFK.

    MAKE NO MISTAKE…the WEF is who is controlling everything. They are the ones who put forth the Epstein island operation. They are the ones who put forth the Covid plandemic to oust Trump and push radical policies like lockdowns.

    Everything is in place for them now.

    The question is, what are YOU going to do about it…?

    • Retired Spook May 7, 2023 / 2:12 pm

      Kinda dovetails with this meme:

    • Mark Noonan May 7, 2023 / 3:22 pm

      Lets leave aside a conspiracy that particularly large – the bottom line is that is is obvious that Epstein was compromising very prominent people and once they were compromised, they had to do not just what Epstein said, but whatever was said by those Epstein told. It is the perfect op – one with a very long history and greatly refined by the old USSR (in case you ever wondered why prominent people in the West during the Cold War were always willing to soft-peddle Soviet crimes). And these days it can’t just be conventional adultery – that has been so normalized that it isn’t really a scandal any longer. But pedophilia is still outside the pale, so that’s what they used as the means of control.

      But now step outside the op: these people – these Masters of the Universe – have a huge sense of entitlement. That is the aspect of Schwab which is most disturbing: you can see in his actions a sense that he believes he’s a superior person with a moral obligation to reorder the world. People who believe that about themselves do not hold themselves to be bound by any moral code and they also believe they have earned the right to whatever pleases them. And if this means some young boy or girl has to be abused for their pleasure, that is just the way it will have to be. But they are fearful right now…a lot of things are swirling around out there. They can rely on the traditional media to shield them but they know that there’s still that chance revelation will emerge and the common people will find out and demand an accounting…and so the push for transitioning of minors: if a minor can consent to a double mastectomy (and, better actually, if the minor’s parent or guardian can consent for them) then they can consent to anything.

      For most of us, it still all seems too fantastic. People aren’t like that! But most people still don’t realize what it is like to be a human being alienated from God. We still think in terms of someone being a Nazi or a Communist and it is the Nazism or Communism which makes them bad. It isn’t: it is being opposed to God which makes them bad. And a person who has rejected God can be the holder of prestige degrees, be from ancient and noble family, be perfectly dressed and possess perfect manners…and still work for the most hideously anti-human objectives. They are contemplating the mass impoverishment of the Western world and are eagerly promoting policies which will collapse global population. Their vision is a world in which 99% of the people live crammed into cities, living in high rise Life Pods and getting around on foot or by public transport…with no property, no family, no religion. Meanwhile, they – the Elite – will sill have vast country estates and all the finest areas of the world will be reserved for them, as will a selection of Prole children for them to abuse.

    The optics of this had me laughing out loud: (from Jeff Childers)

    The eight-week session’s phenomenal list of legislative gains is undeniably sensational. Nothing like it may have ever happened before. It is a unique and wonderful phenomenon, like spotting a rare tufted Alaskan squirrel in Nancy Pelosi’s hair, except even better.
