THE QUOTES OF THE DAY


Quote I

"People should just tell the truth: ‘This is the wrong black guy; he has to be destroyed.’ Just say it. Then now we’re at least honest with each other. The idea was to get rid of me. And then, after I was there, it was to undermine me."Associate Justice Clarence Thomas


Quote II

“I don’t want to be PC. For all of us in the stand-up world, all of us are seeing this and feeling this, and it’s a little dangerous and uncomfortable that there [are] things you can’t say because they might hurt people’s feelings.” Tim Allen


Quote III

There is no mosque in America that performs gay marriages.Dave Rubin


Quote IV

“Expressing an opinion does not come at zero cost, but freedom of expression has limits.

“Those limits begin where hatred is spread, they begin where the dignity of other people is violated. This house will and must oppose extreme speech otherwise our society will no longer be the free society that it was." German Chancellor Angela Merkel


Quote V

“I tried to find a way that would prevent the president from further involvement while trying all avenues to get Gallagher’s file in front of a peer-review board,”Former Navy Secretary Richard Spencer

Related to Quote II, comedians are facing pressure from SJW. Going to perform an offensive set? Comedian Pete Davidson makes fans sign non-disclosure contract before their entrance to the show.

Guests at Pete Davidson’s latest stand-up show were forced to sign a non-disclosure agreement before attending the performance, The Independent reported.

The NDAs barred fans from giving any interviews or posting their opinion of the show on social media, which took place at the Sydney Goldstein Theatre in San Francisco. The legally binding agreement stipulated that audience members were subject to paying $1 million if violated.

Those who had purchased tickets were reportedly emailed about the NDAs just a few hours before the show, and were encouraged to “save time at the venue” by printing and signing the documents ahead of time. Customers were told that anyone “unable or unwilling” to sign would not be allowed to enter the the show, and would receive a full refund.

There are comedians who offend me. I just ignore them. After all we have the "Freedom of Speech".

Speaker of The House, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, is supposed to be one of the smartest people in our country. She's never heard of Skype, Face Time or Go To Meeting.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will fly out Sunday with a large delegation of congressional Democrats heading 3,781 miles across the Atlantic to the United Nations COP25 climate change conference in Madrid.

A key element of the conference will seek to place financial penalties on global commercial aviation to stop people flying and making “unnecessary contributions to atmospheric carbon dioxide pollution.” The Pelosi delegation will join almost 25,000 people and 1500 journalists flying into the Spanish capital to attend the meeting.


When "our betters" start behaving like there is a climate crisis I might be concerned. Until then...........

There are different ways to get bounced off of Twitter, just ask CBD or myself. Challenging Rep. Ilhan as a traitor and requesting the death sentence is a sure way to get bounced.

Danielle Stella, a Republican congressional candidate running for Representative Ilhan Omar’s seat in Minnesota, found her “@2020mncongress” account permanently suspended by Twitter after issuing a tweet about potentially hanging Omar for treason.

As BizPac Review reported, a Florida court heard that Rep. Omar is a “Qatari asset” who had been recruited by a foreign government to pass along “sensitive information through intermediates to Iran.” It was this story that prompted Stella to tweet: “If it is proven @IlhanMN passed sensitive info to Iran, she should be tried for #treason and hanged.”

Although I'm not Catholic, our branch of Pot Luck Lutherans believe the same thing. Lesbian judge denied communion at mass.

A Michigan district court judge was asked by her Catholic priest to not partake in the sacrament of Holy Communion because of the fact that she is married to a woman.

Michigan’s 63rd District Court Chief Judge, Sara Smolenski, told CNN that the priest at St. Stephen Catholic Church in Grand Rapids called and asked her to “not come to communion” because of her same sex marriage.

The London Bridge terrorist attack had an ironic ending. Convicted murderer was out on work release when he came upon Usman Khan.

Among members of the public who confronted London Bridge attacker Usman Khan were former prisoners attending a rehabilitation event at Fishmongers’ Hall, including a man convicted of killing a young woman.

James Ford, 42, was out on day release when he joined those who chased Khan out on to the street before he was pinned to the ground on Friday afternoon.

Ford was jailed for life with a minimum of 15 years in 2004 for the murder of Amanda Champion, who had a mental age of 15.

It is thought Ford rushed to the scene and tried to save the life of a female victim of Khan. Sources said his actions during the attack had probably saved lives.

But Ms Champion’s family expressed concern that Hall had been allowed on day release from prison without his victims’ relatives being informed in advance.

When a leftie defies a law they are considered progressive and enlightened. What will conservative law enforcement officials be called? Convicts?

Law enforcement also isn’t sure how the system will work if some agencies refuse to implement the law, as some sheriffs have threatened. For example, what happens if Denver police contact a suicidal person who they believe should be the subject of an order but that person — and that person’s guns — are in Weld County, where the sheriff has said he will not enforce the law?

“A lot of it we’re just going to be feeling our way through,” Montoya said.

The law has earned the scorn of a number of Colorado county sheriffs who said it violates residents’ constitutional right to bear arms and cited fears about false reports leading to gun confiscation. If the sheriffs follow through with their threats to defy the law and judges’ orders, each judge will have to decide how to proceed.

Why does an obnoxious small minority get to screw everything up? Durham, New Hampshire scales back its Christmas festivities.

A small New England town has decided to scale back its annual holiday celebration due to concerns about religion, according to Boston CBS affiliate WBZ-TV.

As is common around the country, the town of Durham, New Hampshire, held an annual festival that featured a heavy Christmas theme.

As the name would suggest, the event formerly known as the Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony was centered around a formal tree lighting, complete with wreaths hanging on lamp posts and an appearance by Santa Claus on a firetruck.


This year, the event will be known as the Frost Fest, and the appearance of Santa Claus, albeit without the firetruck, will be the only apparent reference to Christmas.

Frost Fest? Why not change your town's name to Pussyville?

Hey Libs, why have gun control laws when you won't enforce those laws? The real truth about why gun violence is the way it is in Chicago.H/T Hank Curmudgeon

Two years into an “affordable bail” initiative that is allowing most accused gun offenders and even accused murderers to be released from jail to await trial, Cook County’s chief judge says the program is working fabulously.


“It’s not by magic that we haven’t had any horrible incidents occur using this new [bail] system,” Chief Judge Timothy Evans said during county budget hearings on Nov. 4.

There are likely many people who would disagree with Evans’ definition of “horrible incidents” — if they were still alive to do so.

• On Feb. 9, Daryl Williams violated the terms of a court-ordered curfew, secured an illegal handgun, and then fatally shot 45-year-old Daniel Smith in the back of the head, prosecutors allege.

THE ONT MUSICAL INTERLUDE



Born on this day: 1 Dec 1944
John Densmore, drums, The Doors, who had the 1967 US No.1 & UK No.49 single 'Light My Fire' & 1971 single 'Riders On The Storm'. Densmore allowed 'Riders on the Storm' to be used to sell Pirelli Tyres, in the UK only and later stated that he "heard Jim's voice" in his ears and ended up donating the money earned to charity. In 2002, Densmore vetoed an offer by Cadillac for $15 million for 'Break on Through (To the Other Side)' because of Morrison's vehement opposition to licensing the Doors' music for commercial use. via thisdayinmusic.com

The ONT would call Ronald Cyr a dumb a$$. However, we can't as he is our Posthumous Genius Award Winner.

VAN BUREN, Maine - During the early evening of Thursday, November 28th, the Van Buren Police Department was dispatched to a residence on St. Francis Avenue, answering a 9-1-1 call from a male reporting that he had been shot. Officer Chandler Madore and the Van Buren Ambulance Service arrived on scene, assisted by the US Border Patrol, and provided emergency medical assistance to the injured man, identified as the homeowner, 65-year-old Ronald Cyr.

While on scene, officers discovered that the front door of the residence had been outfitted with a device designed to fire a handgun, should anyone attempt to enter the door. Other unknown devices were also discovered, alarming investigators to contact the Maine State Police Bomb Squad.

Following an extensive investigation that lasted into the early morning hours by the Maine State Police, the Maine State Police Bomb Squad and the Van Buren Police Department, it was determined that Cyr had been shot as the result of the unintentional discharge of one of his homemade devices.

Perhaps bull shit reporting/commentating will have some repercussions. 1st Runner Up - Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

As Legal Insurrection readers are aware, President Trump spent his Thanksgiving in Afghanistan serving Thanksgiving dinner to our troops and personally thanking them for their service to our great country.

Meanwhile, over at Newsweek, one of their reporters published an article that claimed Trump would spend Thanksgiving “tweeting and golfing.” The internet blew up over what was widely perceived as lazy/inaccurate and even biased reporting.

Apparently, Newsweek took notice because they have since let the reporter go.

She no longer needs to walk up hill to and from work. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Adrianna Edwards walked 14 miles a day in order to get to work.

"I have bills to pay," Edwards told KTRK. "I've got to eat. You've got to do what you've got to do."

When a couple dining in the restuarant learned Edwards' story, they returned hours later with keys to a 2011 Nissan Sentra they had just purchased from a local car delearship.

15 I was slowly scrolling the ONT, and saw two ropes around a thick tree branch.

At first I thought they finally got a couple of Progda propagandists and did what they have coming to them for their active destruction of a free and Constitutional America.

Then I continued to scroll down.

Yes, frankly, I was disappointed when I saw it was a swing.

30 Infidel, if you're out there, sorry I missed your follow-up messages on the Food Thread. I can understand about loving a restaurant but being unable to remember to remember the name, it's maddening.

When I was about 7 years old, my family took me and my oldest sister (who's two years younger than I am; my youngest sister wasn't born yet) to a cabin in the woods, somewhere in Northern California. It was three stories high, brand new and from my 7-year-old perspective, HUGE.

To this day I'd like to find that cabin and see if it can be rented again, but no one can remember exactly where it was. I believe it was either Shasta Lake or Shasta Lake, but alas, the address is long gone lost from my parents' memories.

44 Re: the violence in Chicago - why is gun violence bad and violence by all other means OK?

One of the characteristics of blue cities is that while they scream for more draconian gun laws, they don't bother to enforce the existing gun laws on the books against criminals - prosecuting felons for being in possession of a handgun, for example.

That's because blue city politicians don't particularly care if criminals have firearms - it's law-abiding people with firearms that they hate.

51 As a longtime Doors aficionado, I don't understand why the drummer had control over the use of Doors music.

Morrison died young & intestate (because...of course!)

Why didn't Ray Manzarek have a say in this decision about the tire ad, or did he?

After he died, Morrison's future royalties went to his wife Patty, who OD'd a few months after Jim did. She died intestate also (because... of course!). So Morrison's future royalties went to his in-laws... who had always detested him.

54 Pic up top, first impression is deep memory...

When I was just a wee tad, there was a red wooden rocking horse swing hung from an oak branch. That oak tree right out there; that branch there. The hooks in the tree branch are almost all grown over with bark now, but I can still see one.

The rocking horse swing is long gone of course.

And good riddance. The dang thing never swung straight, always tried to veer into the tree trunk, trying to kill me. (At least I wouldn't be going down the cliff in the pic.)

Most of my earliest memories involve unfortunately skewed trajectories.

Watching CBS news Sunday night, for some unknown reason, probably because I left the TV on a while ago and that's what is on now.

They just reported that AAA said that TG travelers increased by 1.6 million this year from last year.

Why would it be such a big increase? All that travel has to be paid for, somehow.

Maybe because so many people have jobs, and others have improved their jobs, or because of increased hours, have overtime money in their bank accounts?

Now who could be responsible for all that additional money in people's pockets?

Swift writes her own stuff. She also writes songs for a number of other people.

Usually their first tracks, to make their name and get a deal.

People like that awful Ed Sheeran. In his case, he went ahead and poached tracks from others who weren't quite so willing to sell, like the estate of Marvin Gaye.

And basically the reason Prince changed his name to a symbol for a decade.

But no it was because of those mean sexist men. I think they wound up relenting, probably because their lawyer told them whatever their contract was isn't enforceable for a live tv performance, or that they realized the performance could generate some sales and money for them.

163 Still watching the CBS national news feed.

Now they are interviewing an Italian wine grape grower, blaming "climate change" for a shorter growing season and some white wine grapes being affected.

Since it is China and India, and some 3rd world countries burning massive coal, wood, and other pollution sources (not the US, where gasses have decreased), I am waiting for their segment on how Western societies are ramping up their war footing to attack said countries. To stop their "climate change" attack on Mother GAIA, of course.

And basically the reason Prince changed his name to a symbol for a decade.

------

Yep. IIRC, her old man signed a deal with some other country singer (Tim McGraw, maybe?) to get her a deal.

They struck out after her first couple albums and did their own thing, and then she got butt-hurt over her original hit singles not returning ca$h on the radio/live performances.

The first man says "Last minute shopping" in an attempt to make small talk.

The second replies "Yeah. You too?"

The exec says "Yes. I bought my wife this expensive diamond tennis bracelet and a gift card. That way if she doesn't like the bracelet, she can go pick something out herself."

The second says "Yeah, I pretty much did the same thing. I got my wife a new vacuum cleaner and a dildo. If she don't like the vacuum, well...."

Unfortunately, I can't see them ever giving up. In the late 2020s, when the the world isn't starting to burn up, they'll say, "We've done enough CO2 emission reduction to buy Earth some time past 2030, but if we don't get to zero emissions in 7 years, we'll all die by 2037."

China and India together have nearly double the CO2 output of the US and the European Union. Under the terms of the Paris Accords, neither of them have to do a damn thing until 2030.

And if you point this out, environmental organizations will defend China and India.

The point is to have the government take over the economies of the West, of course - "climate change" is just a convient excuse.

270 That was coming down the track like a freight train with Cankles.

From the Portland mayoral candidate's platform:

Prevent right-wing extremists from feeling welcome in Portland. The City should take an earnest and innovative look into all legal avenues to prevent hate groups from crossing state lines in an attempt to commit violence in Portland. Before and after all legal avenues have been exhausted, the full support of the City should be with groups standing up to bigotry.

Leftists in Portland think that the First Amendment doesn't apply if you cross a state line (the northern suburb of Portland is in Washington).

Too bad that the Southern sheriffs facing the civil rights marches in the '60's didn't know that that was a rule.

What I didn't point out to this little bitch to her face : #woke leftists like her took over Kabul in the 1970s in a coup and, when nobody in the countryside recognised said coup, Brezhnev sent a huge army into Afghanistan, which set about to doing what Russians usually do in Central Asian regions what don't want 'em. Namely, a lot of murder and rape of anyone wearing hijab.

I went to the American Museum of Science & Energy in Oak Ridge, Tennessee this last week.

I saw that people there beamed with pride over their little town's contribution to the Manhattan Project, and their later scientific achievements in atomic science and materials technology.

And then I saw their inert B-83 bomb on display (for which they'd manufactured the cores) and I beamed with pride for them, and my country.

I remember when my old man worked at Rocky Flats and the SAC ran operations out of Cheyenne Mountain, and I used to feel the same way about those places.

All of that is gone now, and now it's all California here. Leftist California. No pride, no patriotism. Just California in Colorado.

That's why I want to move to TN. Or somewhere. But not here.

Yep - she's very openly pro-Antifa.

When the people stand up, the mayor should stand with them. The demonization of antifascism is dangerous for democracy. Antifascism in practicality does not look like the black-clad protesters that are often highlighted in the media, but rather moms, teachers, nurses, union members, and other members of society that wish to live in a just world.

She may well win - there are already two cop-haters on the city council, and if she wins, they'll have a majority.

I bought a suburban house close to Portland, in part because of Portland city politics, but I didn't predict how bad Portland city politics would get in less than a decade. When I moved out of Portland, there were no cop-haters on the city council.

For the ones who died for oil in Iraq

And their son who they named Barron

Not Clark County (they're in Washington and have no police authority in Portland) - the two other suburban counties (Washington and Clackamas). The initiating event was the an armed man was barricaded in a house in Portland, and the Portland SWAT team was off training, so Portland asked the Washington County Sheriff SWAT team to come handle it.

The SWAT team killed the armed man, and a Portland jury awarded the family of the armed man more than a million bucks, payable by Washington County.

The sheriff then said eff this - I'm not exposing my deputies to Portland juries. Clackamas County then followed suit.

They have resource pages, including lists of starting and ending serial numbers and engine numbers for each model year. It's not unusual for old pickups to have pieces and features of several years added onto them, since there was a high degree of interchangeability.

Abby: did you make good-faith attempts to go to Mass and to attend Reconciliation during this period you weren't in the parish? Catholicism isn't just about tithing.

511 It's weird to me that a church would ever refuse to baptize a baby or child. Whatever the issues of the parents, if you think baptism means something, you think it would be extended to a baby or child on demand because they have no control over things like church attendance or much else.

TxMoMeet temps were about right for me, all in all. Warm enough through the day to be warm.

Just enough bite in the air at night, to make the fire pit inviting.

Alas though, like a dolt, I didn't hydrate (or eat) enough through the day, to carry me late into the evening.

And worked my ass off all through the day, while neglecting the drink and calories.

DUH. me.

But it wasn't the temps.

IDEAL temps, are warm trade winds across a summer sea, so that on a beam reach from one island to the next at 3 am, the helm is still comfortable in shorts and a tee shirt.

That said, I'm a happy camper in 20f deer blind on opening day.

520 506,

Even if you were outside the parish, had you been attending regular services and going to confession at that church, the pastor would have made considerations on your behalf.

Are you being completely truthful here?

I've had all my kids baptized at a parish that was geographically outside from where we lived, but because we attended regular Sunday service, went to confession there and...attended regular church functions, the pastor was fine with baptizing all of my kids. So it seems to me something is missing here.

526 bear : since Abby hasn't responded I'm currently having to assume that she wasn't in a state of grace at the point she requested her girl's baptism.

Personally I don't even think that a "refusal" to baptise is a Problematic. Remember that in Christianity it's not a refusal - it's a delay, at worst. And G-d in His mercy does not toss unbaptised babies into Hell.

I was baptised (Anglican) as an adult myself. I went through RCIA last year, at 29+ years. [This is one of the points where I have sympathy with the Baptists: the kid has her own spiritual race to run and it starts with baptism, which choice she might well prefer to choose herself.]

Anyway Abby really does need to provide more information here before I get into a blast against the Church.

Well, the immediate issue was something large enough to haul a 'gun triggered' weapon. The B-29 existed, but wasn't well-developed, nor could it carry the bomb without substantial modifications.

As an aside, all of the B-29B's were produced at what is still called 'The Bomber Plant' in Marietta Georgia. I lived for years just 1/2 mile off the end of the runway.

The B's rolled off of the line in '45, the bomb had been under development since well before that.

535 Our B-29s dropped two nukes over Japan to bring WWII to an end.

All for it.

Technical questions:

At the moment of release, both the Enola Gay and Bock's Car made hard, descending turns away from the drop-bearing.

What were their airspeeds at release?

How much speed did they lose in the turn?

How much altitude did they lose in the turn?

Did they complete a full 180 degree turn away, before the blast(s)?

How much distance did they put between themselves and the detonation(s)?

And given that those aircrew all seemed to have survived and produced families, it seems "how far" was really "far enough".

In radiation terms, at least.

How much of the blast wave "rocked" either or both of those planes?

And all of the above, with some slight alteration, applies to the pre-drop meteorological B-29s, as well as the Battle Damage Assessment B-29s which followed soon after.

The radiation factors for subsequent mid-and low-level recon aircraft though?

That's the nightmare fuel, right there.

"What's the point of denying a baby or child baptism? What principle is vindicated?"

The principle that infant baptism is for Catholic families in communion with the Church.

As mentioned, baptism is open to Catholics at any time. It's open to Christians at any time. I wasn't baptised in a Catholic communion. The Church didn't water my head a second time. They just had me affirm the Church's dogma for First Communion.

550 Well, today I did some cleanup work on the Studebaker axle for my Lark in Arizona. Scraped off decades of crud, washed the exterior of the gear housing with solvent, to ready it for a coat of paint. Why not?

Took the rear cover off. No oil inside, save for dregs. But gears are in nice condition, no indication of them having run dry and overheated. There was a hole punched in the lower part of the cover, with a rubber plug in it. I think it may have been drained, and then plugged before it went into stock somewhere. I cleaned the oil dregs out of the housing with paper towels, and cleaned the cover on the wire wheel, and welded the punched hole closed. Replaced the cover, using silicone gasket maker instead of a gasket. I will let it cure for a day or two before adding oil to the case.

Next step: service the brakes.

And I am going to go to bed. About in a food coma after eating three bowls pork pot roast with taters and turnip, cooked in the slow cooker. It was good.

Well, once the bomb has been released, any straight-line flight puts miles between the plane and the fireball. Presumably, they would choose a direction that avoided concentrated AA fire. Time spent making a 180 degree turn is too much time spent in proximity to all Hell breaking loose.

557 Account of unauthorized visit to Nagasaki in Sweeney's memoir, "War's End".


Quite an amazing story. The 509th, of course, lived a separate and special existence, so having the stones to just take a few transports and visit Japan [first American forces just tentatively arriving and setting up at the time] may not be that unexpected. But a great story anyway. Recall Sweeney wrote that upon arrival at Atsugi, freshly occupied by the first American forces in Japan, he was told to move his planes out of the way or have them bulldozed. They found a place to park them, hitched a ride downtown, and partied.

Answered all of my questions, and illustrated the facts on the ground in a way that most of the history books (of my era) failed to do.

So, I'll follow on with this.

Given the post-detonation "survivability" of the WWII Japan nukes, what might be the modern, even cleaner nuke of similar yield to use in today's hyper-media'd environment?

I'd have far rather nuked Bin Laden's valley redoubt, than to have let him escape into Pakistan, when we knew *exactly* where he was, and when.

And to HELL with "collateral damage".

Same as they thought when the plunged the planes into the towers.

Well, I cannot comment on infant baptism because I have no experience with that but I CAN think of a rational reason a preacher might refuse to dedicate a baby. When a baby is dedicated, the people presenting the baby for dedication, usually the parents, have to promise to raise the child in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. I can imagine circumstances where a preacher knows that the parents have no intention of raising the child in Christ and, so, might refuse their request. I say I can imagine circumstances like that because I do not know if it has ever actually happened. I think parents who are that far away from Christ would not bother to pursue baby dedication in the first place.

562 AOP there wasn't much chance of AAA after the drop at either target. Don't believe there was much AAA there anyway, but whatever was there was, well, rather disrupted. Hiroshima had become habituated to recon aircraft - they had ceased even going into "air raid" mode a bit earlier.


In the Nagasaki case, don't recall any AAA either. Biggest problem for Sweeney was fuel. They barely made it to their "bingo" field, Okinawa. Pretty hilarious account of the landing [fired all their flares to clear the runway, notice was taken at the last second by those on the ground, averting disaster]. And the crews had to eat chow there, and not say a word, even as the chatter all around them was about Hiroshima and the Japanese maybe surrendering.

568 AOP there wasn't much chance of AAA after the drop at either target. Don't believe there was much AAA there anyway, but whatever was there was, well, rather disrupted. Hiroshima had become habituated to recon aircraft - they had ceased even going into "air raid" mode a bit earlier.


In the Nagasaki case, don't recall any AAA either. Biggest problem for Sweeney was fuel. They barely made it to their "bingo" field, Okinawa. Pretty hilarious account of the landing [fired all their flares to clear the runway, notice was taken at the last second by those on the ground, averting disaster]. And the crews had to eat chow there, and not say a word, even as the chatter all around them was about Hiroshima and the Japanese maybe surrendering.

I was thinking more that the chosen escape route from the blast would have to avoid any localities that did have functional AA guns.

575 Jim today's nukes are naturally far more efficient, meaning among other things less fissile products remaining - the source of persistent radiation and the active ingredient in "fallout". Actually forget efficiency of current designs, Little Boy was quite low, Fat Man a bit better.


But not actually sure nukes were a good call at Tora Bora [you want to KNOW if you got him]. Actually using your whole menu of options in terms of conventional forces, and maybe in ways showing a bit of confidence, aggression, and anger, might have been the call. The operators on horseback were a good touch, lots of leverage.


A massive airborne assault on key locations, and securing airfields and flying in more muscle, might have been better. *Act* like a superpower that's been back-stabbed by a cockroach. This might have kept "Torabora" an obscure place name by pre-empting the whole thing.

Carter's outrageous [but little-known] actions out of office will be ignored, as will his fondness for anti-American tyrants and antipathy for Israel. Clinton?

587 I'm just going to say that Baptism is a ritual that I merely see as something for those inclined to follow a Tradition. -Nothing Wrong With That.

It is truly in The Spirit of Our Lord, should you choose to be Baptized later in life.

Yeah. Yeah, I am.

Cause I judge them Righteously, as to who and what they are, and eventually "were".

UNLESS that is, they have humbled themselves before God. Repented. Begged is Forgiveness. Sought Salvation in Christ. And changed their actual ways.

701 I mark the end of the Republic with the election of pbho. No one defended the Republic when he ended it. The looting began with a much higher baseline for the budget and continuing resolutions.

The CRs have been going on since 'W', and are only a symptom to the real disease.

The "end of the Republic" should be noted when the tipping point was crossed where the majority went from preferring a Constitutional Republic to a kleptocracy.

A marker for that would be looking at Congress and seeing when plundering the treasury was more important than a functional nation.

I'm of the group that says the Republic ended at the passing of the 16th Amendment - it was when the Republic was forever destroyed. Prior to the 16th Amendment, We the People had a government and the Constitution placed limits on what the government could do. Post 16th, the Government became slave masters and We The People surrendered to be forever treated as chattel.

Will see. Just the other week it was revealed that Durham had expanded his criminal investigation to the DOD ONA. It appears to be James Baker, the guy who was running Stefan Halper.

Don't overestimate what Horowitz' report is all about. He is going to layout what he has found in a detailed and exhaustive fashion. There are rumors that a large cache of documents will also be released to help give context.

Horowitz will give a good overview and accurate recording of what happened but Durham and Barr are where the rubber meets the road. They don't require Horowitz to make a referral to begin a criminal investigation and I don't think Durham is making all these trips to Europe and expanding his investigation here at home for show.

All of the potential targets are talking and building their narratives with the same old CNN, NYT, WaPO, MSNBC, etc. They lied for over three years about Russia collusion so I don't give them any credibility at at all.

It freezes perfectly. I used some I made last year to save the watery squash soup we made for Thanksgiving.

753 And real fraud control on government systems. SS
pays out billions to people with NO SS. Medicare fraud is guesstimated at about 10%.
______________

There's enormous fraud in Medicaid too. CA alone has hundreds of thousands of ineligible people on it. Then there are the tens of billions of dollars that the IRS pays out in "tax credits" every year to illegal alien filers who don't pay any taxes. And there are the millions of illegal aliens who are receiving food stamps, even though they are not supposed to get them. The amount of money being pissed away in this country every year is staggering.

754 On New Hampshire, An old service Buddy from New Hampshire emailed from Manila Philippines, I asked "What are you doing there?" he said, "I wanted to get as far from Woke New Hampshire as I could get and be on the same planet, plus there is no snow."
Thanksgiving, My Sister-in-law the freeloader never worked any job longer than a year and none since then. Said she was voting democrat this time, she was all in for a living wage for FREE, yes she said for FREE.I thought and then said, Get a job.
