He was against taking out Bin Laden, why should I believe he wanted Al Qaeda leader Ayman Al Zawahri taken out?

President Biden announced Monday that the U.S. government killed the leader of al Qaeda, Ayman Al Zawahiri in a "successful" counterterrorism operation in Afghanistan that removes the terrorist from the battlefield "once and for all," and degrades the terror network's ability to operate.

The United States government, on July 30 at 9:48 p.m. ET, and 6:18 a.m. Kabul time, undertook a "precision counterterrorism operation," killing Al Zawahiri, who served as Usama bin Laden’s deputy during the 9/11 attacks, and as his successor in 2011, following bin Laden’s death.

Biden, in an address to the American people, Monday night said "justice has been delivered," and warned those that seek to do harm to the United States.

Or is this some misdirection Bullshit to take our mind off $2.50 loaf of bread?

Well of course he is mentally ill.

The man who authorities say planned to assassinate Justice Kavanaugh in a bid to impact the Roe v Wade decision identified as a transgender female called Sophie, according to court documents.

Nicholas Roske traveled to Kavanaugh’s home after the address was leaked by leftists on social media armed with a gun and a knife.

A transcript of a conversation Roske had on Reddit confirms that he actually planned to kill at least three Supreme Court judges in a bid to “stop roe v wade from being overturned” and permanently alter the balance of the court in favor of liberals.

President Trump is attempting to be cute. And I for one wish he would play golf and chase his wife around his mansion.

On the eve of the hotly contested U.S. Senate primary election in Missouri Tuesday, Former President Donald Trump has finally announced his endorsement.

“There is a BIG Election in the Great State of Missouri, and we must send a MAGA Champion and True Warrior to the U.S. Senate, someone who will fight for Border Security, Election Integrity, our Military and Great Veterans, together with having a powerful toughness on Crime and the Border,” Trump said in a post on Truth Social Monday afternoon. “We need a person who will not back down to the Radical Left Lunatics who are destroying our Country.”

I would love to know the Full Story behind this. Wouldn't you?

A disgruntled excavator operator who allegedly got fired by their employer recently took revenge by destroying several luxury homes in Ontario’s exclusive Muskoka Marina.

A 59-year-old man has been charged with mischief and slapped with a $5,000 fine after a viral video circulating online showed him using an excavator to severely damage several properties in Muskoka Marina, a popular summer retreat of the rich and famous in Ontario. Police officers who arrived on the scene just after 9 p.m. on July 21st discovered “significant damage” to the marina on Lake Rosseau in Muskoka Lakes Township, but no suspect. It was only after a video recorded by a local went viral on Twitter that the 59-year-old perpetrator was identified. He is now scheduled to appear in court and risks spending time behind bars.


Can't you just hear this in the Canadian's nicest voice, "Fvck it, eh?"

How does it feel to wake up a lying, stupid, Affirmative Action pick? Just ask White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre. Or not, she's too stupid to realize any of her attributes.

Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy pressed White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about the raise in taxes in the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022.

Doocy asked Monday if President Joe Biden will rescind his support for the Inflation Reduction Act, a budget reconciliation bill proposed by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Democratic West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, given that Biden promised not to raise taxes on anyone making $400,000 a year.

If there are any Horde members over in the UK, please tell your Overlords they are a bunch of pussies, they talk like fags and their shit is retarded. UK Vet arrested for causing anxiety. FFS!

his is the moment an army veteran was arrested by police for 'causing anxiety' after retweeting a picture of a swastika made out of Pride flags on social media.

Darren Brady, 51, has slammed Hampshire Police for 'impeding his right to free speech' after he was placed into handcuffs on Friday at his home in Aldershot for sharing a meme.

Footage of the arrest was widely shared on social media and showed an officer who told Mr Brady he was being apprehended because his post had 'caused anxiety' and been reported to authorities.

The image Mr Brady retweeted was of a swastika that had been digitally manipulated and was made out of four LGBT pride flags.

In the video, shot on a mobile phone, Mr Brady can be heard asking the three police officers: 'Why am I in cuffs?'

One officer responds: 'It didn't have to come to this at all.'

I bet these cops would fit in at the Uvalde, TX police department.

Crazy stunts in a 3rd World Country, what could go wrong? On the bright side, at least he was with her when she passed.

“My wife was crushed before my eyes,” said Alexander Tkachenko.

Yevgenia Leontyeva, 33, had been reluctant to make the leap from a hotel rooftop, even though she had done so before.

The mother-of-three let her female friend go first, and this ‘rope free-flying’ leap was successful, a court was told in Karaganda, Kazakhstan.

Witnesses said Yevgenia had appeared “afraid” - but they heard instructor Alexander Muznikas, 33, urging her to jump.

Whey you're a parent with a child on an air flight: Is it that damn hard to watch your tax exemption child? Obviously it is.

Surviving a flight on a packed plane, especially when there’s serious air travel chaos going on in the world right now, can be a daunting mission. Luckily, a can of Coke, headphones, and a movie you downloaded on your phone can make it if not exactly enjoyable, then pretty much bearable.

Just because you finish at the bottom of your medical school doesn't mean you can't strike it rich. At least until you are arrested.


CLEARWATER, Fla. (CBS12) — Investigators say a doctor in central Florida preyed on addicts for years by writing hundreds of fraudulent prescriptions.

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office said Dr. Neelam Uppal, 62, even sold illegitimate prescriptions for Promethazine Codeine Syrup and Oxycodone to undercover narcotics detectives, without examining them or speaking to them. Detectives paid $650 in cash for each codeine syrup prescription and $450 in cash for each Oxycodone prescription. Detectives believe she sold more than 550 of these prescriptions since January.

***SNORT***

A Seattle activist was upset that the city swept a dangerous encampment. In response, she offered up her own home for the homeless to sleep in. Hours later, she reportedly regretted that decision.

City workers cleared an encampment in SoDo that created dangerous, untenable conditions for both residents and nearby businesses. Activists, socialist city councilwoman Tammy Morales, and staff at The Seattle Times complained this move was taken “during a heatwave.” Apparently, you’re supposed to keep vulnerable people outside to suffer in the scorching heat, rather than bring them into air conditioning, offering them access to electricity and clean, running water.

24 So, a few threads ago, I commented: "Move along, little corgis." My way of saying nood, and hell yeah, I thought that was clever. In a moment of curiosity, I googled to see if anyone else had ever used the exact same phrase, and unexpectedly, I discovered that I had said the same thing once last summer. I'm not sure what the moral of this story might be, except, maybe, encouraging kids to drink more scotch, so they're not stupid enough to remind themselves of things they've said before.

26 "We stand by Serbs living in Kosovo. We believe that [the demands of Kosovo's authorities] are absolutely unfounded,"Kremlin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov

Oh boy. The Europeans managed to learn absolutely zero from two World Wars, didn't they? Just blamed both on nationalism, washed their hands and then kept on believing the things they did before the wars (except that after WWII they temporarily hid their hatred of Jews and love of eugenics for a couple of decades).

28 I voted absentee on Friday for Schmitt. He's been great as MO's Attorney General, so I was highly ambivalent about losing him on the state level; but however guilty or innocent Greitens might be, I don't want to risk what should be a safe Senate seat. Considered Hartzler, but I don't think she has much of a chance.

And like MisHum, I wish Trump would stay out of it.

74 I was with the Navy as a Corpsman in the Bay Area (Oakland)
at a Regional Medical Center during the "Great Coming Out" in the late 70's. Bath Houses, Drugged up Clubs in the Castro District. getting the "Oral" history of every weekend's flaming debauchery from my then room mate "Ricky" in the BEQ.

Frankly, he was the first Ghey person I ever knew and I grew to tolerate him even though there were some of my fellow shipmates that just wanted to take a baseball bat to him. I declined every offer to go with him and the Fag Hags..(who just so happened to be the most stunning Waves on base) into San Francisco to party.

He died the next year. In fact, every Ghey Nurse I have ever worked with are all dead.

Monkey Pox is very much a "Ghey" thing....and this generation have been bringing back the Bath Houses and the clubs. I am totally floored that the media/CDC/Administration are pussy footing around so as not to “OFFEND”????. What a bunch of EFFIN LOSERS!....or,

He definitely preferred watching The Joker to whatever my wife was seeing in her seat. After she caught him looking at my screen, she told me to turn it off.

Just read in A Man Called Intrepid that the British SIS encouraged Tito to revolt if the king decided to allow Hitler to move troops through Yugoslavia. The idea was to delay and fuck up Hitler's timetable to invade Russia, hoping they wouldn't get far until winter hit. Stalin was being an idiot and didn't think Hitler would invade. Turns out Germany was indeed delayed by a critical number of weeks.

Read the lyrics, without the music playing along.

Straight up, legit poetry there. Way up at the top of the scale for emotional insight, intelligence and not often found in music, pretty close to correct grammar. Which is difficult as F to consistently do when setting words to tunes.

"Softly", is worth a read. Give it a read.

371 "If Zawahiri was killed by a CIA drone in Kabul, that means the CIA has people in country, right?"

20 years of presence (military, large intel) in a country tends to create a base of assets that is still quite functional a year after you scoot.

Even without this, the agencies had quite a few impressive gets in Paki tribal areas and other places. But the, well, "commercial culture" of the region is also actually very helpful in buying, or renting, cooperation, just enough to get what you need.

I met a local nurse that had moved from the conflict region back in the day, nice woman, didn't ask her details of whether her parents made it out.

So many atrocities, hard to keep track. But the only motive I can see for our CIA and their color wars is to keep others fighting each other .. but now they did it here in the USA ... against MAGA, constant upheaval in order to (?) form their New World Order, Build Back Brandon (CIA terrorism) world ... they formulated the KoolAide ... then served it up to us (via mRNA and all the other genocide ops, like their Trump/Russia or Social credit score, health card/chip ops).

Dan Crenshaws, writ many and large. Eyepatch accessories sold extra.

yeah, and we need to identify the enemy so we can fight them. Russia, yeah, OK. China .. yes, the greatest external threat. ... But "DeepState", or the internal bureaucratic cartel and their criminal cartel associates (drug/human traffickers, banking cartels, BlackRock, etc.) are the Big Threat.

And that is not Big enough, they are in control .. not a "threat" (not a "threat" if they already took control), they are the junta in charge, who must be identified as such before we can attempt to remove them. There is some awakening going on as they move on complete fascism/commie control of speech ... but they feel they can overwhelm us with their "lightning war" (not military, but bureaucratic).

428 President Trump is attempting to be cute. And I for one wish he would play golf and chase his wife around his mansion.

He's a natural born multitasker, Mis Hum. Iianm, Eric Greitens was already slightly ahead in the polls, and Trump does love winning. Endorsements are one of 'his things'. And Eric faced scurrilous charges from a Dem AG; this happens pretty often. See Rick Perry as TX gubner for a good prior example.

430 I was probably about 3 or so, and oftentimes in the summer we'd go over to Grampa and Grandmas house and he'd always fill up one of those plastic backyard kiddie wading pools.

Then, one summer we went up to Minnesota, to Ten Mile Lake to stay at some rustic cabins, go fishing. Kapok life vests, night crawlers( Zebco, etc. Grampa and Grandma were there too.

We were all out chillin' and grillin' by the lake, I barely remember it, but the lake looked like a shitload of water to me, and I actually kinda got scared thinking about it.

"Did Grampa fill the lake with his hose?!"

I asked, and everybody roared with laughter, never heard the end of it even years later.

seems nice enough, and pushes some mild "conservative" points. But we (the real world "conservative") need real voices, not those that play footsie on the edges as the evil ones continue their junta, which includes shut down and even prosecution of free speech.

Her looks? idk, I don't care ... like Coulter, who the eff cares about their looks .. Carry the Message (finish the mission) ... if they do that, I don't care if they are too boney, or whatever. imo Coulter was right to challenge Trump as he backed off his border security and moved toward "tax cuts for the rich".

457 Zawahiri's death almost had to be misdirection, like MisHum alluded. The guy had to be like 90 years old by now. He's not mobile, and probably hasn't been for a decade. It stretches credibility to think that they suddenly discovered him when this country is being eroded by an official recession, rampant inflation, obvious election fraud, a kangaroo court prosecution of peaceful protestors, appalling levels of crime, supply shortages, and the monkeypox disease destroying the gay community.

My guess is that they've known his location for quite some time. And they've kept it in their pocket when they wanted to boost their image and distract from the fact that this country is at its lowest point since the depression.

Now this being MS not NJ, when an unincorporated area becomes a new town or acquired part of a town, they FORCE you to shut down your well and hook to town water. Ignoring their order leads to Very Large Fines.

After Katrina, my FIL rehooked up his well as city water just wasn't available. But he had had to shut 'er down once city water went online again.

468 Walter Freeman, you axed earlier about this, I'm nowhere near MN, but near the border (well, sort of a border) in America's Finest City.

I haven't asked around lately, but likely very few are old/attentive enough to know the origins of that municipal slogan.

In 1972, Richard Nixon was going to have his re-election convention in San Diego. I was alive but a bit younger at the time, but I gather the RNC/WH freaked out over very unimpressive threats/indicators of unrest (remember, 1972, DNC Chicago convention was still an open wound) - so they switched to Miami Beach, which has geographic features allowing total access control to the convention site (then).

Out of "wounded" pride*, somebody came up with the idea of the slogan "America's Finest City" as a response.

* wasn't pride, was awareness, that in '72 San Diego was about the nicest place to live in CONUS - all the natural factors like climate of course present, but a relaxed, inexpensive, medium-sized city, where growth/crowding were really the only focus of concern

Posted by: rhomboid at August 02, 2022 12:48 AM (OTzUX)

469 they are the junta in charge, who must be identified as such before we can attempt to remove them. There is some awakening going on as they move on complete fascism/commie control of speech ... but they feel they can overwhelm us with their "lightning war" (not military, but bureaucratic).

Posted by: MiklosWatch at August 02, 2022 12:52 AM (fXe1m)

475 Oh - and the hidden double irony (if that's a thing) of the slogan - America's Finest City - was that at the time, like much of CA, the municipal govt. was, in fact, very well run. City services were fine, taxes were not high. City (and guvamint in general) employees were not paid highly, but had great benefits and job security, and (literally) delegations of government people from the world over came to CA to learn from the excellent agencies like Caltrans and others, re public administration.

Well, just a few years after, things began to tip, and you know (or have heard some version of) the rest of the story. (San Diego itself only is still in the process of tipping - last non-idiotic major urban jurisdiction on the coast)

But to live it, and see the contrast, between then and now .....

At first it was gotta lose the well, $1500 and will set you up with city water. He said no. Some time later, look you really gotta lose the well, but now its $2000. He said no. Some time later, look asshole lose the fucking well, and now its $2500. He finally relented. Good for me, I would have never bought the house had it been on a well. Septic, oil heat and well?

Septic is not that hard, but regulation can make it expensive. Sometimes government can be helpful (on requiring safe installations, for example), but if they get bought by the mafia, only paying an extra $25K or so will satisfy the corrupt system.

I do want to use the cistern again for soft water from roof collection, and sure, soft water is better for washing with less soap. And I use reverse osmosis for my coffee maker ... but hard water does not quickly corrode pipes to the point of stopping flow, in my experience.

591 Well I finished the last of my renovations for a while. I got 2 weeks before the kitchen gets here. Hit a milestone tonight, annnd I'm out of bourbon. Typical. I finished trimming the french doors, and planed the 2-3 degree taper in them for a perfect fit. I used a #5 bailey type 9 plane made between 1902 to 1907 to do it. I had such a shit run with power tools last week I went total old world tonight. Was cool really, there is nothing like edge tools.

FUN FACT

Of the years that I learned Spanish, in the US, in Europe, in Yucatan, I never heard "ese" until in the US a few years ago.

I do not like this word.

Gutter Spanish, lower by far than the Tex-Mex spoken in (where else?) Texas.

"ese". origin, So Cal '70s low rider culture, harking back to the greasers of the '50s and zoot-suiters of the very late '30s.

Such lingo is a gatekeeper of codewords, as to "who is in or who is out", as to current jargon. Say the wrong words at the wrong time or in the wrong way, and you're in deep shit, ese.

Unbeknownst to me one of mine horked on my flat-bed scanner so I had to clean dried up cat-food vomitus before I could use it. Then Windows 11 recognized it but no driver. It was originally a WinXP vintage but it worked with Win10. HP no longer kept a download (they used to have a site for legacy drivers but no more it seems). Fortunately I'm a magpie and still had the HD from my old Toshiba laptop (died when a cat peed on the keyboard). It still had the full installation file for that scanner. Worked like a charm.

I got up to Span 3 in HS and 2 more years of it in college. But it was all pretty much the reading track. I could never assemble a sentence very well in conversation and was always fumbling for words and constructions in the "If only it were English" method.

I don't regret it. It taught me a lot about languages like Latin in general and (strangely) about English in particular.

My first year, 9th grade? Horrible. I got through it by brute memorization. It got easier after that.
