WW3 CANCELLED!

Shhh, don’t anybody tell David French, the Treasoncrats, or Bill “Kuck Kluck” Krystal. They’ll be crushed.

If you went to bed early Tuesday, you were surprised to wake up Wednesday and learn that World War III has been delayed. No doubt you were also shocked that Iran blinked, oil prices were tumbling and the stock market was soaring.

Once again, the Chicken Little chorus got everything all wrong. The sky isn’t falling and Donald Trump pulled off a huge victory. Oh, and he’s still president.

That last is the part that hurts ’em most of all.

Iran’s decision to pretend it was retaliating for the death of Qassem Soleimani by lobbing ineffective missiles is terrific news for America and freedom-loving people everywhere. So was Trump’s Wednesday offer of negotiations, which he wrapped in even tougher economic sanctions and warnings against any new attacks on Americans.

Over the last week, the president has put on a clinic in seeking peace while projecting strength. Just don’t expect to find the outcome described that way in the New York Times or on CNN.

Comically, the Times tried to turn America’s victory into defeat, with its top headline declaring that “Trump Backs Away From Further Military Conflict With Iran.” Imagine the headline if he had chosen the military option.

Still, if you’re keeping score at home, this marks approximately 1 million times Trump has escaped a doomsday certainty. Alas, his survival only seems remarkable because he has such fools for opponents. And I don’t refer just to the Iranians.

Heh. Okay, that bit’s pretty sweet for sure. But this one’s my favorite:

It’s true that if any Democrat or your average Republican were sitting in the Oval Office, Soleimani would still be strutting around the Mideast, spreading mayhem and death like an evil Johnny Appleseed. But that’s only because no other politicians on the stage have Trump’s America First convictions and the courage to act on them.

And the solid-brass balls not to give a flying fuck at a plate glass window whether his domestic enemies approve or not, too.

Update! Did somebody mention Trump not giving a flying etc just now?

During the rally tonight in Ohio President Trump blasted lying pencil-neck Adam Schiff.

Via 100% Fed Up:

President Trump: “Adam, you little pencil-neck… He has the smallest shirt collar you can get, and it is loose.”

I ask again: how could any Real American not love the guy? The only thing about this that bothers me is that I’m afraid he might’ve said a lot more that wasn’t transcribed, and I missed it.

Down-update! Sinking like a rock—in certain quarters.

U.S.—President Trump’s approval rating among terrorists hit an all-time low today according to a CNN poll. This comes just days after he killed several of them. 

Of those surveyed, only six percent of terrorists–mostly white nationalists–said they approve of Trump’s performance. Of the 94 percent who disapproved, just half said they would like to see the president dead. The others claimed they would be perfectly happy with a pallet full of cash.

I bet so. Actually, though, I’m just fine with sending more pallets o’ cash to Ragheadistan—as long as they’re dropped from high altitude without a ‘chute, directly onto their empty heads.

Publick Notice

Slowly but surely getting things reorganized around here, folks. Haven’t re-established the old posts yet, because the WP Import tool’s file size limit is less than half what the size of the export file actually is. It’s gonna require editing a certain file on the server side to get that adjusted, so I just ain’t gonna bother myself too much about it right now. Lord knows there’s plenty of other things needing done at this point.

Curiously, the Export archive only includes posts up to mid-December, then stops for some reason. Don’t know why that is; doesn’t really matter, I suppose, since I have pretty much everything archived locally in Ecto, the 3rd-party posting software I’ve been using since it came out. So worse comes to worst, I can just go back and repost the oldies but goodies via Ecto, then adjust the times and dates in the WP admin panel by hand. A pain in the ass, sure, but what about this whole ordeal hasn’t been?

Ye Olde Blogrolle links present another conundrum. Apparently, the WP Export file didn’t include those at all, which near as I can figger means they’re gone for good. In a way that might be considered a good thing, since it’s been a minute since I had time for properly policing them to ward off the link-rot. Looks like I’m just gonna have to start from scratch with those.

I installed a few new plugins for use hereabouts, most of them affecting the comments section: editing, like/dislike, subscribe to, etc. As always, let me know what works for ya, and especially what doesn’t. The right sidebar is going to require updating, since the only backup I had for it was from 2017 or so. Why yes, I HAVE been taught a valuable if painful lesson about doing regular backups of everydamnedthing, why do you ask?

One more thing: with the site having been hacked down for damned near a month during the holidays, donations and subs are running pretty anemic. The site doesn’t bring in a whole lot of cash anyway, but what it does garner me can be make-or-break sometimes, most especially when it comes to covering the perennially-late hosting-service bills. All of which means that if you’ve ever considered tossing a few simoleons over this way to express appreciation for my snarling and snapping here, well, now would be a most excellent time for it.

Plastic surgery disasters

Well, this is…unfortunate.

On Monday night’s episode of “Botched,” a show on E! about cosmetic surgery mishaps and how to fix them, a woman named Crystal Coombs came to the show’s doctors because she had pubic hair growing out of her face. It was growing from a skin graft she’d previously undergone in the area to repair a dog bite, People reported.

Coombs said the dog bit her when she was 9 years old. She was rushed to the emergency room, where a plastic surgeon was tasked with repairing the chunk of skin the dog took out of her cheekbone area.

“He suggested the skin graft, [and to] take it from the groin. They did the surgery, and then the hair started growing,” Coombs told “Botched” doctors Terry Dubrow and Paul Nassif. Coombs said that she never recalled her surgeon at the time saying pubic hair growth would be a side effect of the procedure. 

(Manhattan dermatologist Dr Hadley) King said split-thickness skin grafts are often taken from the butt, thighs, arms, back, or abdomen, and according to Medline Plus, full-thickness grafts are typically taken from a person’s chest, back, or abdominal area, not the groin.

“It’s best to match the skin as well as possible, and it’s also advantageous to take it from a relatively discrete area so that the donor site is not a significant cosmetic concern,” King said. “In this case, the donor site is discrete but because of the hair it’s not really a great match.”

Gee, ya think? I was about to say that the still from the vid accompanying the article is about what you might expect, but—well, no. Whatever expectations you might harbor, I assure you it’s much, much worse.

Hear ye my tale of woe…

Y’all may have noticed another round of the blind staggers going on here at Ye Olde CF websty the last two days. Reason being: I went to change back to the usual theme, locking Scrooge Picard back in his closet for another year, and BOOM! Another of who even knows how many cleverly-concealed Trojan time-bombs blew my poor old hogwallow back into smithereens again. I was up until about 5 AM this morning digging through subdirectories of subdirectories, finding bogus file after bogus file just lying there waiting to be invoked so it could start the whole crash ‘n’ burn cycle all over again. It was damned dismaying. Also infuriating.

So we decided on a real deep-dive, Godzilla-style stomping of the entire site, to include setting up all-new database tables, users, fresh WP re-install, ALL directories removed, etc etc. I’ll be working the next cpl-three days on getting things chugging along smoothly around here; wish me luck, people, ’cause I’m gonna need plenty of it. In the meantime, archives will be screwed, image and links both internal and external will be broken, the site will look kinda retarded, plugins and widgets will be disabled, and such-like. It’s just generally going to be more chaotic than usual in this joint until I get things scoured, disinfected, and rejiggered again. If the posts seem even more surly and bitter than usual, well, you’ll know why.

All the marbles

Wow, looks like the gun grabbers don’t give a damn WHO knows they’re fascists anymore.

Breaking: Virginia vows to shut down all gun ranges not owned by the state

Clearly, they are NOT taking the 2A sanctuary movement at all seriously. They must be shown the error of their ways, or all will be lost.

According to House Bill 567, any indoor shooting range would be prohibited by law – UNLESS it was inside of a building owned by the state. 

And any business owners who decided to defy the law could be facing up to a $100,000 fine and potential civil penalties.

According to the bill, which has not yet been voted on or approved, would prohibit” the operation of an indoor shooting range, defined in the bill, in any building not owned or leased by the Commonwealth or federal government.”

For those that would be staying open, the state wants them to act as a data collecting operation, creating a state-controlled list of who is using the range as well as their photo ID and home address.

Let’s be clear. This is a very real threat against the rights laid out in the Constitution. Americans have the right to defend themselves. And the state is literally trying to stop gun owners from training and improving their skills.

This is an attack on our liberties. 

Well, duh! Of COURSE it is. The Democrat-Socialists are vehemently opposed to any and all liberties, and firmly believe that the common serf has absolutely no rights their rulers are obligated to respect. Virginians stupidly voted them into power last time around; now they get to pay the price for that most grievous mistake, by either surrendering their most basic rights…or risking life, limb, and livelihood fighting to preserve them.
