The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

Once I’ve finished with my song and I release it then I don’t mind who makes what interpretation of it. At least, for me, they’re thinking about it. They’re free to think it means this, that or the other. If they ask me what it means I’ll say, “OK, well this is what I think it means but you’re free, feel free to think of it as anything you wish.” Paul McCartney

Quote II

You are capable of more than you know. Choose a goal that seems right for you and strive to be the best, however hard the path. Aim high. Behave honorably. Prepare to be alone at times, and to endure failure. Persist! The world needs all you can give. E. O. Wilson


Quote III

Forgiveness is not always easy. At times, it feels more painful than the wound we suffered, to forgive the one that inflicted it. And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness. Marianne Williamson


Quote IV

“But for those who voted for Biden, that’s what you’re going to get, and for Republicans, and Christians who voted for Biden, this is on your hands. To be sober, I just want them to realize that.” Focus on the Family (FOTF) President Jim Daly


Quote V

“When I am asked to provide strategic advice to help a company operate in a more responsible and humane manner consistent with U.S. law in spirit and letter, it is an opportunity to make things better while helping protect and create American jobs.” Former Senator Barbara Boxer

Quote VI

“A lot of people are migrating to OnlyFans out of desperation. These are people who are worried about eating, they’re worried about keeping the lights on, they’re worried about not being evicted.” Angela Jones, an associate professor of sociology at the State University of New York at Farmingdale

The relationship between NYC and Trump Org. will be interesting to watch. The Commie mayor of New York is in a dick measuring contest using tax dollars.

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio announced this morning the city will terminate three contracts with the Trump Org in response to the storming of the U.S. Capitol last week.

Per Fox News “The mayor said that City Hall would notify the Trump Organization that it will be canceling agreements to operate the carousel in Central Park, two skating rinks and a golf course. He said the agreements for the carousel and skating rinks will be ended in less than a month, but that the golf course could take longer.”

De Blasio said “In light of this criminal act, the city of New York has determined that it is within our power to terminate all contracts with the Trump organization…So, goodbye to the Trump organization.”

You attract more flies with honey than a high powered firearm.

They say that dogs are man’s best friends, and it would make sense to see people do anything for their dogs. But cats? Have you ever heard of someone getting charged with kidnapping, false imprisonment, burglary, and weapons charges after allegedly threatening a 23-year-old woman with a loaded assault rifle because he wanted to get his cat? Well if not, meet 44-year-old Tony Wittmann.

There was nothing to apologize for. Actor Bruce Willis apologizes to the Mask Nazis.

Pictures emerged of the Die Hard actor walking through a Rite Aid pharmacy in Los Angeles, California on Sunday without a mask or any kind of covering over his face. He wore a bandana around his neck but Bruce did not use it to cover his mouth and nose. Amid criticism for not adhering to health and safety measures during the coronavirus pandemic, the actor released a brief statement to People which said: ‘It was an error in judgment. Be safe out there everyone and let’s continue to mask up.’ It had been reported by Page Six that Bruce, 65, was asked to leave the store by an employee due to him not wearing a mask. Cases of Covid-19 continue to spike in California, where over 31,000 people have died from the disease. More than 2.8 million cases of coronavirus have been confirmed in the state, which is currently under a stay at home order.

Oh my Erik Erickson is worried about right wing circles. The only thing he knows about circles are circle jerks. He still isn't going to land a gig on CNN.

The Newspaper of Record is now operating as the CDC.

“Football coaches do it. President-elects do it. Even science-savvy senators do it. As cases of the coronavirus continue to surge on a global scale, some of the nation’s most prominent people have begun to double up on masks — a move that researchers say is increasingly being backed up by data,” the paper writes.

The Times cites Linsey Marr, an expert in virus transmission at Virginia Tech, who said “if you combine multiple layers, you start achieving pretty high efficiencies” of blocking viruses from exiting, and even entering, the nose or mouth.

Of course, there’s a drawback: “We run the risk of making it too hard to breathe.”


Progressives are so stupid.

Are new cars getting out of reach price wise for the average consumer?

Average new car price crosses $40,000 in 2020 and that's nuts

The latest analysis shows new car buyers not only paid more, but coughed up larger down payments to make a purchase happen.

Kids want transparency. Teacher gives it to them and becomes our Genius Award Winner.

A lecturer was left red-faced after uploading a video to a shared portal showing herself calling students 'absolute idiots'.

In the video, senior lecturer Dr Helen McCarthy complains to Cardiff University colleagues about a student sharing a petition during her lecture.

She said the student 'p***ed me off' and joked about there being an 'uprising'.

The clip was accidentally recorded and uploaded to the student portal with Bioscience students at Cardiff University discovering it among lecture recordings and sharing it widely.

Aryana Chopra is Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Aryana Chopra said she wanted to spread a little holiday cheer to those who could not be with their families.

When Aryana's mother, Shachi, saw that her daughter was hard at work designing the cards, she called a local nursing home and asked how many residents lived there.

"They told me the number was 200. I went back to Aryana and asked, 'Will you be able to make 200 cards? She was like, 'Yes, Mommy, I can do that," Shachi recalled.

"For her, at a little age, to be thinking this way, my heart totally melted."

15 Ps35

Plead my cause, O Lord, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me. Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help. Draw out also the spear, and stop the way against them that persecute me: say unto my soul, I am thy salvation.

Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul: let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt. Let them be as chaff before the wind: and let the angel of the Lord chase them. Let their way be dark and slippery: and let the angel of the Lord persecute them....

28 Does Mable Peabody's have an online site?

And MisHum, Ellen Foley is an interesting music choice. There was a type of brash female singer that seemed to only have been popular in the late 1970s and early 80s; Bonnie Tyler was another of them.

There was also a great one who's on the Grease soundtrack, Cindy Bullens. Unfortunately she went crazy (see her Wiki page).

35 If you voted DNC this year for President you literally voted for anybody but Trump.

Because you voted for the party that said you're getting 50-year political veteran Joe Biden, but Biden revealed on national television that he has made a promise to a previous President that he will "fake an illness" and step down if he comes into conflict with his VP.

To be clear, that's a woman who couldn't win a single primary.

You voted for a party that lied to you about exactly what you were voting for.

90 A whole LOT of grannies kept .25 Ravens as their nightstand guns. All they could afford on Social Security and food stamps.

Know what? God BLESS 'em. An armed Granny is the Best Granny!

And God Bless Raven/Jennings/Bryco for cranking out so damn many of those pot metal piles of near-junk. Funny thing though, those guns really would work as intended, through a box or two of rounds, anyway. And I'll betcha Granny never even fired off a practice mag at the range. Would they be my choice for a carry gun? Next to never, unless there was NO other choice. Then, yes. More immediately useable rounds on board than a Liberator, anyway.

I've always bought to own, since my idea of car maintenance is a sometime thing, and I store trash and dirty tools or gear in it from time to time. (Hey, I gave a hoot and didn't pollute.) So leasing isn't the way for me. At the current prices though I'll be buying my next car from Junior Samples.

My latest is a station wagon, into which I put a decent set of all-weather tires and I patched some of the interior. I paid $2K and have driven it for three years. It probably will go one more year, and then on to the next one.

I hate car payments. My car isn't my penis substitute, so I don't care if it doesn't turn heads. It also doesn't get stolen or broken into. So, there's that. And I can load an entire Costco run, three hockey players with equipment, and two dogs into it and still have breathing room.

My latest is a station wagon, into which I put a decent set of all-weather tires and I patched some of the interior. I paid $2K and have driven it for three years. It probably will go one more year, and then on to the next one.

I hate car payments. My car isn't my penis substitute, so I don't care if it doesn't turn heads. It also doesn't get stolen or broken into. So, there's that. And I can load an entire Costco run, three hockey players with equipment, and two dogs into it and still have breathing room.

Word. I'm also a cash buyer. But, holding on to my truck - it's a 2005 with a bazillion miles on it. Still in great shape, (RPM instrument busted) and leaks a little oil - like I care.

Agree, primary the hell out of them, but work for a Dem opposition candidate? Not only no, but, Hell, NO!

Get a Dem elected and you've given Pelosi or Schumer another minion to order around. The Ds, unlike the Rs, are really good at "party discipline". Whoever the Dem nominee you'd be working for is, you can be sure that the party didn't allow some independent, undisciplined rando to win their primary. The only Dems that get uppity are ones that have been there long enough, like Manchin.

Work for an independent, a libertarian... hell, run yourself.

176 If Trump sues on January 21 for defamation and due process violations, SCOTUS will say "Too late, laches!". If Trump sues to protect his due process rights before the inauguration, SCOTUS will say "No jurisdiction, the Senate has sole power to try impeachment."

.380 seems a bit small for an APC. Sorry, I had to do it. In all seriousness, enjoy it. My only issue with .380 is it can often cost more than 9mm. I get that there are few 9mms that are as compact as some .380s. I once had one of the heaviest .380s you could find, a Beretta 85, before it was called a Cheetah.

According to the 22nd Amendment (if the Constitution even matters any more) she can serve out Biden's last two years and still run for two more - for a total of ten years.

260 231 Jim,
Trump found out the hard way through Kelly, Mattis, McMasters, etc. that our flag officers just are just politicians in a military uniform. Part of it is the military education systems for advancement which has deteriorated including the honor code across the board.

If a president by some miracle is conservative, the best thing they could do is reduce the flag ranks to that of the Army and Navy of 1940. Even years ago, it was getting ridiculous with the ratio of generals to troops or admirals to ships compared with the command ratio in WWII.

I would also make every officer serve as an enlisted man for at least two years including the academies and the direct commissions. Air Force should bring back the warrant officers as well.

As one might suspect, about the only ammo they had left on the shelves was not the high-demand stuff. If you needed a box of .338 Win Mag, you're in luck. 5.56? No way. Same for primers, powder, and boolits. There were shotguns and bolt guns, and a handful of revolvers, but pretty much no semi-autos. And this is in a mid-sized southern Oregon town, in a store that has been reliably well-stocked for most of the past 15 years.

I think one thing that PDT was trying to do is get the growth rate up so fast that we would basically outrun Monty's doom scenario which could have been possible if Congress had actually wanted to invest smartly in infrastructure etc. rather than spend money on grifting opportunities for them and friends.

I've completed the Second Official AoSHQ Classical Music Playlist of Sedition and Domestic Terrorism (TM), consisting of 800 pieces by 800 different composers. You can see the list here:

http://soyaraborzoi.com/Playlist2.htm


Almost 90% is new over the first playlist and the carryovers are pretty much ones that you'd be surprised if they weren't there. If you have the first playlist, you'll still be getting a lot from this one.

The pieces stretch from the 14th to the 21st century. The bias is toward the Classical and Romantic periods, so all you afficianados of plainchant, Renaissance sackbuts, progressive exercises, dodecaphony, serialism, aleatory, and minimalism are SOL.

Same terms as before. Write me at monsalvat 61 at gmail dot com with your mailing address if you'd like a flash drive with these works. While I am not making claims to good taste, I think previous recipients will testify to the value of someone like me serving as an aggregator.

293 115 I buy my cars with cash. No payments. That means I buy road-worthy but not all that lovely older vehicles, and maintain them. My latest is a station wagon, into which I put a decent set of all-weather tires and I patched some of the interior. I paid $2K and have driven it for three years. It probably will go one more year, and then on to the next one.

I hate car payments. My car isn't my penis substitute, so I don't care if it doesn't turn heads. It also doesn't get stolen or broken into. So, there's that. And I can load an entire Costco run, three hockey players with equipment, and two dogs into it and still have breathing room.

You are more optimistic than I am. But we have enough FUD going on Right Now that we don't need to fuel the anxiety further.

So while some economists were pimping SDRs as the replacement for the dollar as the world's reserve currency, I'm not seeing the movement in that direction.

China's financial system is the opposite of transparent, so while they are now the global hegemony, their currency isn't up to the task.

I'm trying to figure out what will be the international medium of exchange. Multiple currencies will just encourage runaway arbitrage.

Some of the most spring-loaded in the patriot position people i've ever encountered, are warrant officers, mustang officers, and NCOs. Once they get that batallion staff school under their belt, the rare ones stay that way. The NCOs seem to go at a lower rate when they get the CSM school in the army. Most Warrant Officers, only see ANOC, before becoming a Warrant. And they deal daily with the NCOs and lower EM, which keeps most of them centered and focused.

A lot of them can be readily identified, but voters just don't care. Primary challenges to incumbants don't work because voters see one name they recognize and have voted for for 30 years and the other is a nobody.

Even more informed voters don't want to admit that their previous votes were a mistake, so we just run into the "I hate Congress, but I'll happily re-elect my Congressman" effect.

Anyway it's not his character it's his bluntness, his impolite manners and his willingness to say what others won't.

There is not one thing anyone can point to that shows him as some tyrant or dictator. NONE. It's all innuendo and misinterpretation by those who are in the lower echelons of politics and are also very young. Too serious and too full of themselves.

Then look at government policy no matter who is in charge. There's only one logical conclusion: they don't represent their voters; they are working for someone else. You can't fight that via one-offs in the primaries. Even if you succeed here and there, and you often won't, they'll go to a DC where virtually everyone else is against them. If you are gonna solve the problem, you're going to need to acknowledge its scope.

380 I think gold has been a standard of value for thousands of years for a reason. There is a limited supply and people through history have always wanted it. Even compared to jewells and other high priced items, they can always down sell you and tell you why it is not worth what you think, etc. The market is bad, there are flaws, it is ugly, whatever. But with bullion, the price is the price.

i am not saying it will make you rich, far from it. But if we are talking a standard store of value, you could do worse than gold. But everything goes up and down in value so there is that.

398 371 318 BifBewalski, I agree that was and hopefully still is the core of the military--the ncos, warrant officers in branches that have them, and mustangs in my experiences. The few ring knockers that I came across struck me as products of nepotism where they were learning to network for glory rather than how to handle troops. ROTC officers were uneven in quality. Direct commission officers were clueless.

Then again, I was enlisted but came from a military family of officers albeit different branches.
Posted by: whig at January 13, 2021 11:20 PM (pO7gM)

ROTC are hit or miss- concur. As for service academy officers? I found them to be either outstanding or total douches- never in the middle. Former enlisted turned officer via OCS were either outstanding or sham masters. I have a lot of officer friends of all stripes- and 99% are hard core conservatives. Its a hard road for a kid at 23 to learn the ropes and know jack and shit and be responsible for a platoon of soldiers who have more experience than the leader. So take that for what you will.

I was looking at a lease return GLS-63 since new they are $130k+ and if you look well enough can find one in the low 60s.

What makes this work despite the potential of being a high maintenance cost vehicle is that it is a vanity car and the wealthy person who had it is unloading it because one can't just show up with a three year old luxury car. Also the AMG part of it make it highly unlikely that this was given to the wine Mom or the maid to drive around and pick up the kids from the academy.

This is an interesting strategy. While it would be great to jettison the entire GOP and start again - and I would like to - we need to have a rational strategy to change the party.

Starting a new party will be incredibly difficult. You may get some help from Dems because they'll use them as a stalking horse to get rid of the GOP themselves, so you'll have help getting on the ballot in some states, but it will cost a lot of money. Expect any money raised to have a significant portion of it grifted away.

Target the entire GOP, and the ones you don't pick off will be emboldened to screw the base more. You need them scared. Pick off the weakest ones, and you put fear into the others. Rinse and repeat every cycle. Every cycle.

I have come to peace with the knowledge that the former United States is a Communist Country and will remain that way until the economic reset and then it will get far worse.

That is at the national level. We may have a few more years before the worst part of it hits mainly because our overlords are stupid, dysfunctional and lazy but even more important is that they will have intramural rivals, palace intrigue and purging of immediate threats to ultimate power.

While they are screwing around with that level of housecleaning, I want to find an honest sheriff who will likely continue to win continual community support.

The Republican Texans could do more to protect the state's political heritage. No one thinks Texas is more conservative today than it was 20 years ago. Sure it is not easy, you want people to want to move to your state. Ask PA or upstate NY about people abandoning the place.
But Texas is a concern. If the politics there were more like Oklahoma, I would feel better. I still think Texas will keep its traditions but then again, in a million years, i would not have predicted GA of today.

First, recall that the dollar is not simply a reserve currency, it is the de-facto currency behind the vast majority of transactions world wide, and there is no viable replacement in sight. When we go down, everyone goes down with us, even China.

I think we will see a world wide, civilizational collapse. Not just the collapse of our government, but the collapse of almost every government in existence, simultaneously. And then, war, because war always follows events like that. Curiously, it appears to be about time, since this seems to happen every 1500 years. (5th century AD, 10th century BC)

Their reputation is eschewing work, shamming, and trying to convince everyone of their superior "technical knowledge." Very few have impressed me. One went so far as to tell me as a CW4 he was a "field grade warrant." This struck me as most unusual as i had never heard of such a nomenclature. So i said, "field grade, huh chief? Okay."

Against ballistic thrests, a 10cm aim point accuracy, over 100 kilometers slant range distant, at closing velocities approach___ 8000 meters per second ain't bad either.

Everything that I reported as needing fixed, or changed, got upgraded after GW1. I got to be the warrant for the test battery for all the upgrades between 90 and 92, when i resigned. Then i wrote the requirements for today's Patriot between 92 and 95. Now, i just do systems engineering on today's stuff and train junior engineers to do the same.

454 re officers serving as enlisted men. I understand the sentiment. I also came from a family of officers but served as enlisted. Some of the people I respected most were NCO's.

But some officers have served as enlisted men. We had one family friend who was an infantryman in Korea and an officer aviator in Vietnam. We also had a close friend who became a Major but to us, he was always "Gunny".

I think in the end the real issue is training. You require the most from officers and enlisted, you get the best. You start teaching SJW theory, and weed out those who are outdated, and you get what you get.

Almost no one seems to realize that the only reason CNN was in airports was because CNN paid THEM to allow them to be on the stations. (and then they used the fake viewership numbers from people they paid to watch them to boost their claimed audience share) It's been a long running scam, and the reason no other network would get in was because they all said "are you crazy? We're not going to pay people to pretend to watch us."

So, CNN ran out of money for that particular bit of idiocy, finally. Well it served it's purpose, they might even let it die now.

465 422, Good question. A lot of the gyrations of the current economy come from a fiat currency effectively as it has no intrinsic value other than a medium of exchange. That is why fiat currencies eventually fail and are replaced. To do that, you pretty much have to some kind of way to restore trust to the currency--backing it with something of intrinsic value is one way to do it. I have formally studied economic theory back in the day including econometrics and macro economics. Over the years through experience, I have realized that micro economics can more or less be modeled but most of the assumptions underlying macro economics are simply fictions dressed up with numbers. Glad I left that field of study for something a bit more real.

One value of energy to back a currency is that it is just easier than trying to find gold deposits and control them across the globe. Given enough atomic energy,one can actually transmute and make something like gold.

If you manufacture gold like an alchemist, that gold will not be valued as highly. It is the same with diamonds and other gems. Some can be manufactured and be called x.y.or z. But those in the business know the difference and they are priced accordingly.

If the economy crashes and the dollar loses value because the Harris regime goes full Venezuela or the mixed-lines civil war is endangering commerce, we will take the developed world with us in a great down spiral. In 1929 our Great Depression hit Europe and Japan hard. The PRC ought to be telling their bought & paid for politicians in D.C. to go easy, and make sure we can still buy their slave labor crap. If not, then they'll have worse trouble than us. Don't know if the Harris regime will listen though...

One
of their bits of evidence is that the NG in DC is armed with lethal
weapons, commanded by a 4-star with lots of combat experience, and the
'state of emergency' they're operating under runs from two days ago (the
11th) through the weekend after Inauguration Day (the 24th). That would
make a lot of sense if Trump is going to be reinaugurated on the 20th,
and doing it in a big public ceremony to rub the criminal Dems' noses in
it. He would need 20,000 armed men to fend off the screaming mobs of
Antifa freaks who would be swarming downtown D.C., and it might take an
extra 4 days to crush them.

503 451 Jack Burton,
Oh yes the pilots in command. Our unit was involved in the big Organizational Readiness Inspection and we were at a northern tier base in the Winter about when it started with freezing rain then to sleet, then to snow with 70 mph winds.

The ground was frozen solid and our unit was to place temper tents for the flight crews for the inspection. The pilots insisted on putting the heated and cooled tents on the flight line. We told them they were nuts but the command went out and the tents were placed on the flight line as requested weighted down with sandbags because we could not obviously stake to concrete. The wind fired up and some of the tents went sailing down the runway, others had their metal frames so twisted from the winds that they were junk. Our commander did pretty well because he insisted that the order be in writing. The commanders of the wing, not so much.

Then keep changing the oil, it will go 300-400k and get a little over 20 mpg. You will also be able to see out of it, get a more comfortable ride, fix a lot of little problems yourself, and pay no comprehensive insurance.

It seems insurmountable because Repubs either gave up or got rolled on the issue.

If we are going to do this and keep a semblance of America, it is going to take hard work. The Left did it somehow. Maybe their way is easier as people naturally align with failed Leftist policies. But still the way out of this is political victories, no matter how small and where.

Commercial contracts can have provisions that allow for termination for image reason so long as that isn't race/gender/etc.-based. Depending on the contracts and what has to happen to completely separate NYC from Trump, either party may have to initiate litigation.

I do worry about Trump fans who seem to be a little too eager to start armed resistance, without even waiting a week to see if Trump has anything up his sleeve. He likes to quote Sun Tzu about counterfeiting weakness to deceive the enemy and then striking like lightning, and someone's found an old tape of him saying he'd like to "lose everything" so he could find out who his true friends are. Hmmmm. As I said, we shall soon see.

564 548 President Trump is not going to be re- inaugurated. The problem at hand is the problem we face. I wish I had an answer but I do not. I have said all along we lost the culture and the real battles are at the school board and local levels. The only way to move forward is to fix the voting system and the only way to do that is to win victories and decide on voting law. It seems insurmountable because Repubs either gave up or got rolled on the issue.

If we are going to do this and keep a semblance of America, it is going to take hard work. The Left did it somehow. Maybe their way is easier as people naturally align with failed Leftist policies. But still the way out of this is political victories, no matter how small and where.

Quint, you're right, of course. I am not so hopeless about our period on defense. I think for the next few years we can fruitfully tie up and delay some of the bad policies through lawfare and just plain disobedience, and I think the red states are going to be the primary leaders in this area.

IF that had happened, and I am fully willing to stipulate it was not likely... especially after McConnell and Pelosi agreed to rules that defaulted to the fraud if the Senate and House could not agree... it absolutely would have been legitimate to over half the country. If the fraudulent EC was not accepted, it would have either a) defaulted to a contingent election as laid out in the Constitution or b) resulted in an actual investigation of the fraud. The protesters were not the ones committing a coup that day. The congress inside the Capitol was.

So, I wasn't down with the last minute ditch to invalidate the EC vote.

But when the Demedia tried to turn something a whole lot less violent than the riots of last year into something a whole lot more grave, and the Republicans turned on Trump to blame him for an "insurrection", that's when I noticed the world re-entering my sphere of expectation.

586 WARNING: Bad Actors Are Setting Up Fake Election Protests

Doesn't matter. If the media wants to sell that it's Trump supporters, it "will be" Trump supporters.

Sullivan was clearly a bad actor and even tweeted out his embedding in the "enemy" ranks.

But all of that will go unnoticed, it seems.

Interestingly, I read a lawyer's argument that another Supreme Court decision states that Congress cannot outsource a private company to suppress the rights that they cannot suppress themselves. The special powers they gave to social media companies, may make Twitter and Facebook arguable as government standings acting to suppress the free exchange of ideas.

The SCOTUS has accepted thinner arguments, from what I've seen. That would not make "private company" quite the impenetrable shield that private absolutists think it is. Because T and FB as simply *not* playing by the rules of the rest of the market.

You're saying "convinced". That's not the nightmare scenario the Demedia complex is presenting. I always look at the exact scenario presented by the opposition to assess the reasonability of their claims. Without that, you are just sneaking in your own assumptions again.

We agree--especially from some of the first-hand accounts that I heard from people at the rally. There was no attempt for Trump to be "installed". I haven't seen any evidence that fits that. Nonetheless, I think that's what the whole "insurrection" claim implies.

Government is not about what *I* prefer, so my decisions aren't about what *I* prefer. I can *vote* for my preference and I can *speak* for it. Part of dismantling the fevered dream of the opposition is *speaking* against the fevered dream.

610 "we caught 'em", I'm fairly sure, referred to the coup plotters of the FBI, DOJ, etc. Trump used this phrase going back long before the election, maybe even years before.

And with all the fun and joy of the last 2 months, it seems everyone's forgotten about that epochal *actual* assault on the constitution and rule of law.

And it's one of the enormous blows to the country from Trump being removed from office.

By far the greatest and most important govt. scandal in our history will result in nearly Zero consequences, even public knowledge of it. Weaponizing the most carefully safeguarded powers of the federal govt. for political purposes - continuing that even into a campaign to hobble or remove a sitting president - that's a new baseline for the power-mad authoritarians. Just as mass mail-in ballots with zero security measures, and brazen violation of state election laws.

Just popping in for one thing. Lace wigs and the machines one are legendary spam. I have been trouble getting to sleep (trying to get to first shift) and was playing a bit of Bloodborne. I went to look something up and came across well, I am not sure if it was meant to be satire or a serious scam. Become a vampire.

Here is a snippet:
Being a vampire has certain limitations, but it can also be a ton of fun. Your extra strengths and abilities can make you successful in almost every endeavor you participate in and before you know it the money and acquaintances will come streaming in. You can build wealth and gain prestige and notoriety and attempt things you may never have even considered as a human. One thing you will definitely have more of is time.

There's more. There's even an email address.

617 Gorbachev was a lawyer and a shiny rising star in the party, hence his ascent to power at the relatively young age (for contemporary Soviet experience). Very sharp. Don't recall the disdain from the arts or intellectual set, but that would almost be required, as Gorby was still the top commie, however reform-minded he was.

But when Van Cliburn played "Moscow Nights" on the piano in the East Room during Gorbachev's first Washington visit, Raisa sang along, and it was clear Gorby couldn't even fake anything past the second line. Was watching it live on TV and cracked up when he started the mumble thing. So some gaps in popular cultural background were indicated, for sure.

I am very comfortable saying it even if you are not. Enough fraudulent votes have been directly identified in more than enough states to turn the election. Quite frankly fraud under the guise of unconstitutional rule changes moved far more votes than necessary to decide the election in far more states than were the subject of law suits. MY state of Virginia for instance. If only legal votes that were not declared void by black letter law were counted, Trump won Virginia handily. Instead the Democrat government illegally changed rules and then ignored the Constitutional mandate that no ballots were to be counted or canvassed in secret by denying observers access to counting rooms. You can bet I feel very comfortable saying fraud decided this election. That should not be the standard though. Tolerating any fraud at all lead us here to a place where one party figured out who to create unlimited fraudulent votes.

I realize all that. Again, "moral legitimacy" is simply a highbrow version of, are you ok with what's going on? A government you do not want governing you is illegitimate, to you. That's kind of universal. Rights come down to whether they can be exercised. If they can't, you don't have them. You may have a claim to them, an argument for them, but you don't have them. So we come down to, can the government you want to govern you enable the country to produce such that it can satisfy a certain minimal demand by the people. Revolutionary/activist governments rarely succeed in providing or setting up the conditions to provide because those are antithetical to their raison d'tre.

You may be prepared to accept a fraud and so will others here and elsewhere for a variety of reasons. Many people will not and the government will become increasingly jackbooted trying to force people to acceptance it. It will not work and it will end badly.

Obama rejected how much the Republicans "provoked" Putin. I have a Brookings Inst article from ~2010 that explains that the Obama admin saw the guy they have now turned into a Scooby-doo villain as a "pragmatist", and that the Republicans were queering the deal.

That's what the "Reset" was about, to show the allies-since Clinton made it official, that we wanted to work with them. The Reset lifted all sorts of tech bans and allowed our information technology to freely flow into Russia. The OA rewarded tech sponsorships and mentoring to create a "Silicon Valley in Russia".

They fucked up royally in putting all this technology into the hands of Putin. And given Russia such a catch-up in technology.

And then they wanted to blame it on Trump. (But this is what the Dems try to do with all their monumental screwups).

All voter fraud should be prosecuted but I know they have spent years making it so that will not happen. And the reality is Virginia has changed, the country has changed. If we only focus on fraud and not the underlying issue, we will be ceding way too much to those who want to ruin what has come before.

637 I flirted briefly with the idea of getting into .32s, because there are about 29 different calibers that can be used in some of the guns (OK, just 2 or 3, but still). And I figured that maybe the Boss would find a .32's mild recoil appealing. Hmm, why did I not do it? Probably because I was becoming leery of having too many guns that were out of production, and old, for reasons of maintenance and longer term support.

Long not-seen Moron retropox has an amazing collection of .32s. Of course it's an actual collection. I was thinking something easy to shoot and reload.

I would like to interject here and say that the first national government we had was the Articles of Confederation. It was about as far from the Georgian government as Congress could get and still function as a deliberative and legislative body. But it failed because just about everything we accept as good and proper national government today was nearly all in the hands of the (dis)united States. So there had to be enumerated and respected rights, but the new nation had to be able to function and make "e plurbis unum" a reality. The Constitution was never about protecting the individual in all ways or empowering the national government. It was always intended to be a balance between the two positions. Finding that balance while dealing with the needs of the present age has been the task for over two centuries.

It speaks to the lock step ability of totalitarians to speak as one. Hearteningly, it also shows how little control they have over the actual flow of information that they seek to monopolize. After a week of demonizing Trump and conservatives, Trump's approval ratings in the press's own polls plummeted from 52% to... 48% (and then 49% apparently today). They do not control the vertical and they do not control the horizontal no matter how much they lust for that power they might have.

They are panicking and they are overreaching. I do not know yet what the effect will be of that overreach but I know it will shake something loose.

648 The standard for calling an election into question is not a beyond-reasonable-doubt demonstration of X votes being tossed out or changed so that the official tally has a different winner. That's not why a House race in NC was tossed 2 years ago, that's not how a House primary was tossed in NY state this past summer. And so on.

In those races, and usually at state level, you literally re-do the election - everyone gets a do-over.

Presidential's different. Thus the multiple fail-safe mechanisms (state legislatures, Congress, and the added but not unreasonable one of courts).

And that's why I've been saying we have had a *comprehensive* systemic collapse here. None of the safeguards designed to deal with hinky presidential election processes were used - they were barely even dusted off. Each one of them discredited itself spectacularly, from state legislatures to SCOTUS to Congress.

There was another argument I made when the Dems were going apoplectic about November.

Gore never recovered enough votes to change the outcome in any of the 3 completed counts, or the projected outcome of the 4th recount.

So "not significantly enough" was not a principle that was used here. Instead, it was: if a single dimpler or stray marker, or a Democratic voter who simply "forgot" to vote for Gore was not counted when they "intended" it for Gore was an *individual* disenfranchisement of *that* voter.

So, that argument can carry that if somebody voted for themselves and their dead relative, then that illegal vote for the dead relative canceling out your vote is a single act of disenfranchising you.

the .32 is a nice round and the guns are mostly under appreciated as "mouse guns" I personally have sold a few guns in my day but almost never a mouse. Anyway, some of the smallest legit firearms in existence are .32s. If I were to give you some advice, I would look into Fiocchi 73 grain FMJ as a standard round and also check out .32 "rim lock" regarding hollow points.

Valid and Honorable, even though his are all in .32 ACP chambering, and mostly all a century or more aged. You want a .32 with a purpose, go with the .327 Federal Magnum, likely in a Ruger revolver. Now you're good to go with that cartridge, or the .32 H&R Magnum, or the .32 Special, or the pathetically weak .32 S&W.

That .327 Fed Mag will fuck some shit up something above the hottest .38 Special +P and the venerable .357 S&W Magnum. .327 Fed Mag is not something to be trifled with. Taurus and S&W made bunches chambered for it too, IIRC.

You know, I haven't been able to fully buy in to the idea that they're feeling *that* fearful. This show of force with the National Guard tends to move me in that direction, but it could also just be theater.

Some dipshit incel LARPers were let into the capitol and they dinked around for a bit. It was pretty fucking dumb, but no one should have been surprised and fuck the police for basically entrapping them.

But I'm supposed to believe that was some organized insurrection with command and control? GMAFB

Very smart people have already tallied the fraud. All you have to do, just as all the left had to do and all the courts had to do, was look at it. You are responsible for your own level of ignorance or knowledge on this subject. Not looking is a piss poor justification to say I don't know on a topic this important.
You say Virginia has changed and the nation has changed. I say prove it. The fact that they had to cheat as big is they did (2.7 million illegal absentee votes in Virginia alone) indicates you are wrong.

I've seen some flawed arithmetic as well. And I didn't say it wasn't more widespread, I just said that you can reuse the same argument as Gore did.

If you use the "significant" argument, Gore failed that one: there were not significant enough to *change the outcome*. Yet the same people still want to bleat "Selected, not elected" (which is stupid because Bush won the Presidency by EC the way that every president has won the presidency). The SCOTUS simply overruled an inferior court that was keeping certification and slate selection open, just like Trump was asking. And the Rehnquist court ruled that it was violating its own Constitution to do so, and interfering with an executive function. Once the Florida supreme was barred from further interference, the SoS certified the vote that was there and the slate was chosen for Bush.

If you believe the narrative of the piss-stream media, a guy with a helmet had his helmet knocked off from a shovel-pass of a fire extinguisher (it wasn't swung and it wasn't hurled) and later went to the office and died.

It was a stupid ass thing to even shovel-pass an (empty?) fire extinguisher canister at a cop, but all the same, it lacked a lot of ferocity that people have tried to read into this.

693 648 And that's why I've been saying we have had a *comprehensive* systemic collapse here. None of the safeguards designed to deal with hinky presidential election processes were used - they were barely even dusted off. Each one of them discredited itself spectacularly, from state legislatures to SCOTUS to Congress.
=====
Well see, the Presidential election got all the safeguards because Madison & Hamilton knew that a potential Caesar would go for the presidency, the one true national office. The system collapse, it should be pointed out, was as much a part of the corrupt election as the Dominion and mail-in ballot fraud. The safeguards were all invoked in order, and somehow were all found to be wanting or inapplicable. In a way, the safeguards didn't fail, because they weren't tried. No one wanted to take a stand and support the true recount or challenge the certification of said non-recounted total. It was a fraud, everyone knew it was a fraud, but the fraud was held up to be a legitimate victory. It's not a system collapse, it was human malfeasance, which doesn't bode well for 2022 or 2024.

I mean it was just so fucking disingenuous. Fredo and LeMon told us flatly that Antifa had a proud heritage of punching Nazis to the point that if they punched you, you could *only* assume you were a Nazi.

And then a couple of Dems dissembled about a "myth" or "idea" and the press took that over-claiming there was no organization, where they had *claimed* before it was an upstanding, if violent, organization.

Good evening, horde. Have we talked about the Los Angeles DA and his contest with Chesa Boudin of San Fran to get as many criminals on the street as possible?

Maybe you remember the walk-up cop shooting that happened last September in which a lady cop was shot in the face and miraculously survived. Well, the would-be killer will not get any special enhancements for great bodily injury or use of a gun, meaning that even if he gets the book thrown at him, he'll be eligible for elder parole in 20 years.

Similar leniency for someone who decapitated 2 kids.

I contacted the DA of my county yesterday and asked whether she intends to grant jurisdiction to this bastard in any multi-county cases and amazingly, I got the answer I wanted. Cali DAs are suing the bastard. It's curious to me my local DA referred to him as "the elected District Attorney of Los Angeles."

Nice work, Angelenos (assuming they actually elected him, but I'm not cutting them any slack). I predict a bright future for this bastard, no sarc.

How are we not already overwhelmed?

The lefties have had the education system so long that we're losing the ability to refute their arguments by attrition. I was reading an interesting data analysis last night, and there were some Lefty types making some damn good arguments in the massive comments section.

They did a pretty good job taking the authors to task. And whenever the Righties chimed in, it didn't take them long to fold like cheap suits and start name-calling and going way off track. There were a couple of Righties who did an okay job, but it was a bloodbath overall. Depressing.

The Left has such an ideological stranglehold on Academia that were not getting anywhere near the amount of quality people we used to.

728 The latest GA fraud count from early Jan was something like 450,000 illegal votes.
The Biden margin was about 11,000 votes.
Underage voters. Dead voters. Voters that moved to a different county and did not re-register. Out of state voters. Criminals with a record and no ability to legally vote.
All of the contested states have similar stories, and the proven illegal votes are many, many times of what the margin of victory was.
And for those that say "you can't go back to each vote". No, but you can see the margin of victory in each individual precinct, for the weeks of early voting, and the day of voting, and then the Pallets of Ballots that came in at 98% Biden in the wee hours of the next morning.
Just take the massive late night vote and apply the precinct percent to it. Trump will handily win every state, plus a couple more, including Virginia. Courts have done this before.

Hadn't thought about it in years but back in the 80's we had a gunstore and sold a lot of Ravens and Jennings made by Davis Industries. Cheap guns, you couldn't pay me to shoot one, but half the ladies in our northeast PA coal town had one in their purse. One evening a guy came in with bandages on his face and right hand with a Raven he had recently bought. From what I could tell the top cartridge in the mag had exploded and blew the side out of the gun. He just wanted a replacement. I called Davis and after I explained the situation I was immediately connect to a lawyer asking about the extent of injury,etc, to which I replied you don't understand: the guy just wants a new gun. The lawyer ask where the damaged one was. I replied I have it and will send it to you. The replacement piece was sent immediately.

A) It wasn't a riot by any stretch of the imagination. The people who would have made it a riot were remarkably well behaved because the crowd was policing their behavior. and B) The push to get into the Capitol started longer than half an hour before the president finished speaking. Trump was 45 minutes to an hour late starting his speech and I would estimate that the push at the Capitol started before Trump even started speaking.

To quote Senile Placeholder: "c'mon, man!"
How is "a valid certificate of birth abroad" not a birth certificate? You know what I meant. I'm speculating they are not *identical*. It sounds to me like a functional equivalent. You're the lawyer, not me, so you had a greater understanding of variations of legal documents that would have met the criteria I mentioned, which I'm guessing is maybe in the high-90%.
Now do you understand why so many people hate lawyers with a passion? You could have helped, instead you did the opposite. Instead of clarity, you obfuscated.
I mistakenly thought we were on the same side of politics. That we both wanted a fair and just voting system.

Show me the video of a cop being killed. Go ahead, I will wait.

752 A lot of them can be readily identified, but voters just don't care. Primary challenges to incumbants don't work because voters see one name they recognize and have voted for for 30 years and the other is a nobody.

Even more informed voters don't want to admit that their previous votes were a mistake, so we just run into the "I hate Congress, but I'll happily re-elect my Congressman" effect.

Another problem is finding a competent candidate to challenge. We always seem to end up with amateurs or kooks. If you want to see the GOP fight tooth & nail against an opponent, see how they treat their own candidates that manage to primary an incumbent R.

And as each layer of supposed checks and balances failed, we said well surely this will be stopped by the next failsafe. Each of those failsafes proved to be not only corrupt but blatntly so. So we are left with where we are.

Remember, redbanzai, this was no accident. Democrat lawyers spent 2 years and over $200 million dollars to upend and nullify local and state election laws that were meant to insure a secure election.
And then D Guvnors and D state Supreme Courts covered for their illegal actions, in defiance of their own state constitutions and laws. And the few times it got to the USSC, they dodged their responsibilities like they were in a snowball fight.
The failures over and over again were a result of these actions.

772 I get the anger. I wish I had an answer. If I did, the Left would have not taken over in states I have loved for decades. But i do know the Left used this as an excuse to ignore the argument. Some people played into their hands and now that argument is dead it seems. Yes flat out wrongs were committed if people simply doing their jobs were hurt. But also, the entire play wrecked everything Trump, Rudy, Trump JR, and all the rest were saying.

I get some are ate Defcon 1. I understand why that is and in no way am i a "so called conservative" But what might have been if this did not end this way? What if people demonstrated peacefully in even larger numbers?
Again, I wish I had the answer. If i did, things would be a lot different in this country.

my personal view is conservatives/nationalists/Trump voters spit the bit in 2018, That was the real time to show up in droves and if they did, none of this would have happened.

It all depends on his conditions of parole. A judge has a lot of power and leeway.
But if the judge never mentioned that he can't drink beer, or hang with Proud Boys he knows, or whatever restriction Kyle didn't break, then I totally agree.

It's at least misdemeanor. He's free on parole. You don't get to commit more crimes while you on parole. He was asking to be thrown in jail. He basically told the judge he's a dumbshit. And he is. Kyle Rittenhouse should have been as far from there as he can legally and safely be, and should've kept as low a profile as he could. His gene pool will almost certainly make it to Idiocracy.

808 You can't charge a person for "perjury in their plea" because 1) coerced confessions discovered after a plea could be charged with perjury, and 2) anybody pleasing innocent and found guilty would be liable for any add on sentence.

But Judge Sullivan tried making this argument after real discovery was enough to allow Flynn some room to reverse his plea, and the case against Flynn pretty much consisted of his plea.

So credit Judge Sullybench of making a pretty good try at a show trial in the modern age. Close, but not close enough.

849 Tapper can keep getting promoted by Communist News Network. But he probably lost more than most over Trump's term in office. There was a time Repubs would kiss Tapper's arse because he threw them a crumb from time to time. He also played up the pro military thing. Fine, great Jake, you are a hero for saying what we all know, those that serve are better than you.

But this guy showed his ass and can never take it back. It doesn't matter what he thinks he accomplished, he knows he has been diminished. Anyone with a clue would steer far from this fraud. He is a charlatan and a fake news reader.

And these soldiers, who swore an oath to defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic, are going to stand around and watch Tapioca Diapers and the Heels Up Ho being sworn in.

Wow.

Then again, our Pentagram finds nothing more important than making sure we have transgenders in our officer corps, our recruits can't do ten pushups, and require stress cards to get through basic, and Seattle has been surrendered to a small group of meth-addicted trannies, so, I guess this all makes sense.

Posted by: CN at January 14, 2021 06:51 AM

It's hard for me to get my head around the idea of anyone believing anything the MSM tells us, after day by day by day of the most outrageous lies, things we know are lies.

YET - by the same token it appears to me that most have lost their faith in Trump, a man who - to my knowledge - has been a straight shooter with us for the last 4 years and proven himself to be someone who is a master strategist, someone who will fight for us (how many times have I heard hm say that), and someone who absolutely loves America and what it stands for.

Simply, why would someone with those attributes toss in the towel and fade into the sunset?

Add in the EO's we've seen, the flurry of activity still coming out of his administration, the 20K troops, the ALamo speech, and I don't see how it isn't as clear to everyone as it is to me that he has a few cards left to play. And maybe the Kraken, that eight tentacled monster, is not as fictitious as we believe.

931 Simply, why would someone with those attributes toss in the towel and fade into the sunset?

Easy - because he's a man obsessed with going to court and obeying the same. He can't comprehend that the legal system is rigged. Or, more likely, won't.

His fatal flaw remains his belief in credentialism. Very common both in his generation as well as his region. The man has never met a doctor, lawyer, judge, general, or Ivy League grad that didn't initially impress him.

He's a Dershowitz, when we need a Franco or Pinochet.

What grinds my gears is people who talk about "authentic Mexican" Sure it exists in the USA but most don't really want it unless they are from there. And the so called Mexican places in the South, wow. I am glad so many love them because that is all they know. If you like it, fine, why would I piss on your parade?

Sitting meekly aside - for the moment - is exactly what Trump has specifically asked us to do. I am willing to do exactly that, as he as asked of us. If - and that's a very dubious 'if', Biden is sworn in, then sitting by meekly is off the table. But for now, I am content to be still and watch this unfold. Further, if Biden is sworn in I fully realize I am going to be on my own, or with as many of my kind as I can gather, to hunker down and survive as best I can what's coming.

Hebrews 6:-9-12.

In addition to the NIV which Grammie recommended and the Life Application Bible which i recommended, another good one is the Bible in modern English from the American Bible society, not because it contains a lot of explanatory notes (which the others do, although it has an introduction to every book) but because it contains a lot of suggestions of what to read when you're feeling all kinds of emotions or are dealing with different situations.

Perhaps people here who are Jewish can recommend a version of Scripture they like to use which contains helpful introductions and explanatory notes for the Hebrew Scriptures.

982 my fave is the KJV because there has been more literature derived from that version than any other. Even if you are a non believer, at least back in the day, the KJV was required for anyone who was a student of the English language.

My second choice is much more rare, it is the Revised Standard Version. This was the standard Bible for Main Stream Protestants for decades, until they added a bunch of PC nonsense.

I enjoy the back and forth and study of different Bible versions. But a famous Biblical scholar was once asked which version is better. His response was, "the one that you read". A lot of truth in that.

This bastard also states that whether the govt in the US is fascist or not or even likely to be is "beside the point". Any one not in line with the open borders, open immigration view is a racist and therefore a fascist and nazi.

991 I enjoy the back and forth and study of different Bible versions. But a famous Biblical scholar was once asked which version is better. His response was, "the one that you read". A lot of truth in that.

I always wondered about how people would view the plethora of English translations and how that harmonized with "Inerrancy".

If there is nothing wrong with translation X then why do we need translation Y?

So I just read from the original language. Took a lot of work, but is worth it and is transformational.

Good point. The honorable Mike Rogers. I would trust our nation in his hands, or in Flynn's.

994 The entirety of the "message" of the Left since at least 1992 (and probably much earlier) is "kill whitey". I just don't know what more needs to be said to people who refuse in 2020 to accept that.
_______________

I don't get the white wine-moms who nod along with this. Do these fools think they'll be spared because they wore a BLM t-shirt? Do they think their kids will be spared because they wrote an essay in school decrying their "white privilege"? It's maddening how stupid these people are.

995
"the Most Decent, Honorable, Pure and Righteous Election of All Time."

Observer that will only come when we outlaw voter machines with anything but a read out. and mail in ballots and have Iraq nationals with purple ink
at the polls watching the count and inking the fingers...

997 921 PDTS issued a statement last night

Had a hostage vibe to it. I suspect his treacherous allies in Congress had something to do with it.

McConnell and McCarthy are scum and have to be dumped.

that is a discussion for another time. I don't think I have been involved in a religious debate here in ages. There is a good argument there though. There are arguments on both sides as to how that might work.

Ditto - I would back the play of either - with more than just a vote.

Trump ? I dunno'. He's proven inadequate, maybe to an impossible task - so I'm not sure how fair it is to judge. But his inability to stay on task, and refusal to see the Deep State for what it is, really pisses me off. As I said earlier - we need a Franco. Seems like we got a Dershowitz.

1000 Bearing false witness is one of the top ten no-nos. Do these people calling Trump Bin Laden and Hitler not realize that they will literally have Hell to pay for this?
Posted by: Jmel at January 14, 2021 07:34 AM (qHxux)

You can't be serious. You think these antifa people, and I'd include Pelosi and Schumer, really believe in any semblance of God? They don't. So let go of the idea that a peek at the Bible will change their attitude or lead to repentance. "Antifa" is highly anti Christian as the Church is a fascist motivator.

1002 951 Nancy breaks the rules:

I stand before you as a 1)wife, a 2)mother, a 3)grandmother, a 4)daughter. A 5)daughter whose 6)father proudly served in this Congress.

6 times in opening statement
Posted by: rhennigantx at January 14, 2021 07:20 AM (5QBw6)

Nope.

If approved by vote, the rules package would not prevent the use of gendered language, but would rename certain official language. Included in the changes, the Office of the Whistleblower Ombudsman would become the Office of the Whistleblower Ombuds.
