  1. Trump retweeted this today or late last evening. Sounds pretty straightforward. DO you think he’s bluffing?

    Lin Wood
    President Trump @realDonaldTrump is a genuinely good man. He does not really like to fire people. I bet he dislikes putting people in jail, especially “Republicans.”

    He gave @BrianKempGA & @GaSecofState every chance to get it right. They refused. They will soon be going to jail.

  2. Then there’s this he tweeted:

    68% error rate in Michigan Voting Machines. Should be, by law, a tiny percentage of one percent. Did Michigan Secretary of State break the law? Stay tuned!

    And this:

    Tremendous problems being found with voting machines. They are so far off it is ridiculous. Able to take a landslide victory and reduce it to a tight loss. This is not what the USA is all about. Law enforcement shielding machines. DO NOT TAMPER, a crime. Much more to come!

    A lot of talk there about “crimes” and “breaking the law”.

  3. Kenny, I’ve moved this over here:


    “The vast majority of people weren’t taking it seriously and so the Spanish Government had to Lockdown.”

    Can’t get more clearer than that Wank.

    No Weaseling now.

    First, those aren’t my words.

    Second, summarizing the Spanish government’s reasons for it taking the measures that it did is not advocacy on my part. Are you really that dense to confuse the two concepts?

    Third, re the above, all comments are not opinion; some are just, you know, information.

      1. You answered my question right prompt. You really are that dense.

        Un abrazo,

    1. Nice Leftist move there. Only excerpting one part of the quote I posted.

      One of the main reasons the Spanish government ordered a lockdown was that the vast majority of people just weren’t taking it seriously and weren’t following common sense advice. Every time my MD wife arrived home from work or doing errands she always expressed dismay at how people were behaving despite the virus being such a major topic of conversation almost everywhere she went.

      (The classic example is a small group of grannies chatting away close together while pawing at produce at the grocers without using the plastic gloves that are provided free.)

      That is certainly YOU who is talking. My wife comes home and expresses dismay. I am not sure but my wife is FWIW. Appeal to authority.

      You allowed that the government MAY not be always right, but refrained from saying that directly for the Lockdowns because you were weasel wording it.

      In the end you obviously agree with your wife that people were behaving irresponsibly. So the lockdowns were necessary. I really don’t have any more time to work on this useless weaseling and rewriting of your history.

      1. Fuck you and your precious time. Yes, those were my words up above. Then you go and paraphrase them to be able to draw some conclusions not contained in them. And that somehow made me, according to you earlier, “crazy for lockdowns and masks.” That’s pretty meager stuff for such a strong claim. And I’m just supposed to sit back and take it, along with all the insults hurled at me by you and your buttpal Barry. Fuck that too.

        1. Poor henryKaren. Comes over to pick a fight and gets his nose bloodied by the truth.

          What was it Vox called you when he banned you from his website?

          1. Says the guy who protests the election fraud and all the other calamities brought on by the leftists and does absolutely nothing concrete, zippo, about it but bitch and bellyache over and over and over again. How’s that paper tiger scenario working out for you?

            I expect your ButtBro Barry will chime in on that one at some point.

            1. How do you know what I do or don’t do?

              You doth protest too much. You project like a Leftist.

            2. What I can’t believe that when you say “My wife was right about Lockdowns being the right thing to do” you think that doesn’t mean that you are for Lockdowns. When you complain about grannies not wearing masks and grabbing things without gloves but then try to attribute it to your wife even though you agree 100% with her is a wuss move.

              Do you blame all your faults on your wife? What a man you are.

              1. Kenny, I love how you put–My wife was right about Lockdowns being the right thing to do–in quotation marks, as if those were my actual words, you piece of shit.

                1. Every time my MD wife arrived home from work or doing errands she always expressed dismay at how people were behaving despite the virus being such a major topic of conversation almost everywhere she went.

                  (The classic example is a small group of grannies chatting away close together while pawing at produce at the grocers without using the plastic gloves that are provided free.)

                  Don’t BS us. You certainly are implicitly taking her position and just using weasel words about how you are not sure but “My wife is for it FWIW”.

                  I really don’t like weasels. Own your words. You gave us a whole month of ‘my wife is an MD’ as if you were Kasich making sure everyone knew ‘my father was a postman’. An appeal to authority.

                  You not only wanted Lockdowns and Masks you were implying we should all be gloved up everywhere too.

                  It’s no use talking to someone like you.

                2. Did you know my wife is an MD? Was your father a postman?

                  My wife, who is an MD at a Barcelona hospital, told me today that almost all the Spanish docs that have had to self-quarantine contracted the virus outside of working hours. I found that surprising.

                  1. And where is it that I even mention masks? The only lockdown reference was re the Spanish government. And out of the blue you mention gloves, you lump of turd.

                    1. Hey henryKaren, since you like making comments about other peoples familial relationships, while not knowing one damn thing about them –

                      I don’t think you get along with your doctor wife very well.

                    2. I gave you the quote in the last thread that you promptly “ignored” when you copied your quote here.

                      When I was in HK I never wore a mask during their SARS outbreak. Many people did wear masks but since then we found out it was a waste. The most important thing was avoid the elderly and especially the sick, and wash, wash, wash. We also found it took prolonged exposure to actually pass it.
                      Mass don’t work and it’ been common knowledge for a long time.

                      Right here you are obviously promoting the use of Masks AND Gloves. What did you think would happen if people decided that hey, if the Masks and Gloves work for employees we should make everyone wear them.

                      Yeah, how about all our employees wear masks and gloves.

                      As an aside, everyone in our town that works at places that are still allowed to open wear gloves and masks, and entry onto premises is restricted to 3 or 4 people at a time. Hand sanitizer and gloves are provided at the entry. Pizza delivery guys wear masks and gloves for example.

                      PS your casual remarks about “…places that are still allowed to open” is certainly another sign Lockdowns didn’t bother you.

                      henryKaren, you’re just lying.

                    3. henryKaren doesn’t understand the internet remembers.

                      He is a liar among many other things.

                    4. I mention what’s happening on the local scene for information purposes and Kenny translates that as “obviously promoting”. The mask and glove wearing was voluntary at that moment in time. My wife was dismayed by the lack of social distancing, nothing more.
                      And by the way, green grocers and some other establishments have been providing disposable plastic golves for their customers since long before the China plague hit as general courtesy. Just more info FWIW schmuck.

              1. It’s a very simple thing a man does in life.

                I was wrong.

                Like we all haven’t been there.

                It’s infuriating for someone to insist they weren’t wrong. Not wrong about a little thing. Wrong about something moderately important or more.

                You can never trust a person who insists they’ve never been wrong. That’s like 0bambam.

                Another thing I learned from markets etc is that certainty is not an option. Never assume it is certain that this is a Plague or that it’s nothing Probability says it always lies somewhere in between.
                Of course that is about the future. At the time it is what it is.
                It is our knowledge that is imperfect.

                I leaned towards it being less a problem than it was touted and that Lockdowns were not the answer. I used the knowledge available plus experience plus a healthy skepticism of government.

                I did not actually dismiss the arguments at the time. It COULD have been a big problem.
                All I want at that point is a reasonable discussion of the merits amongst people with different perspectives.

                I felt I was dismissed out of hand. That’s fine. I get over that. At this point to be lied to and STILL dismissed out of hand is not something I’ll forget. Take that as the shoe fits.

    1. I heard something about one file says the Vegas shooting was an FBI sniper. More likely SNIPERS plural.

      Strange though. What’s the rationale for them to do that?

  4. A very weird but interesting year in College BBall.

    Arrrrrgh. SJU lost to Georgetown.  A last minute change. Were we ready? Were they ready? Perhaps not. They shot better but we beat them every other way except blocks. Still we lost by three. The quirks of that game called basketball.

    Shooting is important.

    Chris Mullin was never actually seen on the SJU campus. If he went to class it was unknown. I had him in a class in freshman year. First day was the last day I ever saw him.

    Meanwhile Wennington after the season was finished was the first guy at Friday Band Party and in the local sawdust bar drinking and dancing.

    Mullin lived in the gym. Any gym. When practice was over he found a high school gym where he knew the janitor and spent hours shooting around or foul shooting.

    Mullin became a Hall of Famer, All Star, Dream Team Member, Best Player at SJU ever,  Player of the Year in College, and Legend.

    Wennington spent a long career in the NBA, did very well, hooked up with Jordan and (IIRC) has three NBA Championship rings with the Bulls.

    Life is weird sometimes.

  5. OK, not a twitter person other than looking at the occasional link.

    This one gets a warning: “The following media includes potentially sensitive content”.

    Somebody bleeding, beheaded or otherwise right?

    No, the “sensitive content” is a car with Christmas light strung on it. Christmas lights.

    I don’t want to break up the twitter, I want everyone associated with it jailed. We’re just fucked.

    1. Thanks for that Ironbear. I don’t know who Mrs. Chamberlain is, but she writes well and nailed what a lot of us think.

      1. Yup. That she did.

        Have to give a kudos to Sarah Hoyt, too: she’s been relentless on calling out the fraud and pounding on the “Do not submit” button.

        She’s pretty much the only poster at InstaPundit that hasn’t just shrugged and cucked and decided to accept the new Usurper in Chief as an inevitability.

        1. I made a comment there on one of her posts to the extent that I wished we could get Sarah moved to the daytime posting and send Driscoll to the night posts.

    2. What she is describing in the First Section is essentially what Mussolini came to realize. The rising up of the Masses under the banner of Communism was never going to work. Better to create an all powerful State and “allow” people to think they own their own Property and Lives but in essence the State controls everything about what you can do with your Property and Lives. Much of the time what is “allowed” is only because it is not at odds with what the State wants. So the fiction is maintained. As soon as the State wants another use for your Property or Lives then they “disallow” it. Freedom then becomes a Fiction.

      Liberal Fascism comes to America.

  6. I was doing an image browse in Google today, and I came to a realization:

    Bare is the streetlamp with no politician hanging from it

    There are far, far too many streetlights in this country that have no strange fruit dangling from them.

    1. OK, that was pretty good.
      OTOH, my wife looked at me and said “you’re listening to Taylor Swift?”…
      Me: “beats me, just the devil and some chick named 2020”.

  7. I found the recent public statements by Occasional Cortex about Speaker Pelosi to be interesting, specifically the timing. The current leadership of the Dem party is very old and very white, while the majority of the Dem base (those that actually exist outside Dominion voting machines) are increasingly open about their hatred of Whitey. We all know Joe Biden is going to be disposed of just as soon as the optics look right; I am expecting the rest of the old white leadership to get put on an ice floe and sent out to sea right along with him.

    It might be only a small thing compared to the destruction that is coming, but the looks on Pelosi and Hoyer’s faces as the political knives come out for them should be delightful. Have to find small pleasures where we can in the camps, after all.

    1. It all depends upon the big money backers.

      They liked Peelousy and DiFi because they stayed bought. The reason they picked Biteme and Kamasutra was because they were also malleable and not true believers. That is why Sanders is bought off and Warren and others gain no traction.

      DiFi is probably done.

      Peelousy will be one only of they can get another puppet placed.

      Or else then the tech younger generation will take them over. Who knows? If they think they have the vote manufacturing team down pat they’ll go more radical left then.

  8. While I have opined that I am pessimistic about Trump crossing the Rubicon, or the courts actually repairing a defective election by tossing illegal and fraudulent votes, I still look for evidence that I’m wrong to be pessimistic.

    Vox Day has been upbeat throughout so I find myself going to his place pretty frequently. Today’s post:
    “I expect regular releases of fraud-related news that will become increasingly difficult for the media to minimize and deny. This is analogous to a pre-assault artillery bombardment intended to weaken the enemy defenses.”

    I can only hope.

    One of the possibles that has been bandied about is the role of the VP in counting the electoral votes. From commentor “pyrrhus”, the following link that explains it rather well. “If Trump would be king, Mike Pence could be his kingmaker.”

    1. Those are certainly two separate ways this goes the right way for Justice. The first is a direct crossing the Rubicon.

      How is the second NOT crossing the Rubicon? Pence will open the Trump Ballots despite no Court order ever voting specifically authorizing that and despite the Slate of Electors chosen by the State having voted differently. The “alternate” Electors were chosen by Republicans in the State Legislatures.

      I’m trying to see how it is possible to pick two separate sets of Electors to vote for a State and have them both be Legitimate.

      Maybe I just need further explanation then.

      I’ll read this over again and see.

      1. “The President of the Senate shall, in the presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the certificates and the votes shall then be counted;–the person having the greatest number of votes for President, shall be the President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of electors appointed;…”

        As someone else wrote a week or so back, treat “in the presence of the Senate and House of Representatives” the same as the marxists treated observers in the stolen states, have them about 60 feet away.

        There appears to be no remedy for this. The president, and VP, are who Pence says they are.

  9. “Mecklenburg County Manager Dena Diorio participated in a virtual press conference in which she discussed coronavirus restrictions. She stated that despite her adominishing North Carollina residents to “stay home and only be around those who you live with” during Christmas, she would be “traveling by car to Durham, North Carolina to see some close family, small group.””

    I’m in Mecklenburg County, NC, and I’m just shocked to find a democrat hypocrite in our midst. Shocked.

    “The county manager defended her hypocrisy, arguing that hers is a special situation that should allow her to refuse to follow her own advice.”

    1. These people are not “getting caught” — they WANT the public to know the rules do not apply to them. Rubbing the peasants’ noses in it is the entire point.

  10. In case I get busy cooking or whatever tomorrow and forget –

    Merry Christmas, everyone.

    Merry Christmas

          1. Could be worse. At 11:59 on December 31st, the clock could roll over and…

            It suddenly becomes January 1st, 2020 all over again.

            We’d be stuck in the Groundhog Day loop from Hell. 🙂
