  1. Worlds greatest scam, covid19?

    “Now that Covid-19 is supposedly so bad everywhere, how come not one lab in the world has completely isolated and purified this virus? That’s because they never really found the virus. All they ever discovered were small pieces of RNA that were not identified as the virus anyway. So what we’re dealing with is just another flu strain, just like every year. Covid-19 does not exist and is fictitious.

    We report, you decide.

    1. Oh, I wouldn’t say that they’re absolutely worthless:

      I got to walk into a bank wearing jeans, boots, a black hat, and a mask while wearing a gun, demand money from the teller, and didn’t get arrested, so they’re at least good for a laugh and a few “desperado” wisecracks. 🙂

        1. Heh. I won’t say that it was a lifelong ambition, but I did take full advantage of the opportunity once it became available. 🙂

    1. I now realize that most people that opposed Huck were opposed to his Religious Views. Strangely enough the biggest supporters of Trump were the more religious types.

      Maybe we have to reappraise. I’m opposed to legislating a religious viewpoint and so SoCons do worry me, but if they’re ok with not Legislating national religious values and simply stick to religious freedom for all, I’m fine with that. Many of the stances on issues religious people have can also have a justification in secular humanist terms.

      1. I’m not quite sure why I didn’t like Huckabee, probably the religious deal. I have no problem with the extra religious, just don’t trust them to hold office, until they have proven otherwise. My respect for him grew during the primary season of 2016 when he was one of the few that recognized Trump for what he was.

        1. Only thing I remember about Huckabee is his releasing the violent offender who then massacred several cops at a coffee shop. I’m thinking “Parkland cop massacre” for some reason, but I don’t know if that’s the right one.

  2. I see the headlines: Biden to raise capital gains tax to 43.4 %.

    I wonder how he can raise taxes unilaterally. Don’t they have to enact Legislation anymore or is the Demented Fool’s Backers thinking they’re Dictators now?


    Even more, I wonder why Fox Business doesn’t point this out upfront. The way they are reporting it they sound like they think he can do this and it’s just a bad idea.

    It’s a Very Bad Idea but it’s even worse if he just does this without going to Congress.

    Capital Gains and Dividend and Interest taxes are on capital that has already been taxed once as Income. It’s double taxation and Unconstitutional. The Income Tax Amendment only allows for Income to be taxed once.

      1. That’s what would need to happen.

        It’s just the odd way it’s presented in the media. In the past it would be presented thusly:

        President xxx Proposes Capital Gains Tax Hike to 43.4% and Believes He Has The Votes To Pass It.

        Instead it’s:

        President xxx Will Raise the Capital Gains Tax to 43.4%

        First off, the 50/50 Senate and the Filibuster make any Legislation in doubt. Or it should.

        I think this is another sign of them ditching the Filibuster. I can’t see them standing still for long while 6-10 House Bills die in the Senate because of the Filibuster. Capital Gains Taxes is a Core Tool of the GOPe to keep their Big Money behind them.

  3. Over the last month or so we have seen negative media pieces slamming granny-killer Cuomo (governor, NY) over sex harassment claims — something that normally never gets press if the pol involved is a Dem. A recall petition looks like it will reach a public vote on Newsome (governor, CA). Now we have media stories claiming John Kerry (cabinet level idiot, former Dem pres candidate) sold out Israeli military ops to the Iranians.

    Am I the only one getting the feeling that somebody behind the scenes is clearing the field of potential Dem contenders? I am not sure who, or even for what office exactly; replacement VP when Biden gets the 25th hook? 2024 pres nom? But it is interesting that some big Dem names are siddenly getting hammered in the media, rather than getting the usual ‘they are Dems, ignore it and blame the GOP’ treatment.

    1. Yep, it’s all part of a plan, by who, for what I don’t know. I’m certain it is the same puppet masters operating the Kamala Biden clown show, but I don’t know who they are either.

    2. Sounds like the Bolsheviks are purging some Mensheviks.

      Chicago Political Mafia and a Coalition behind 0 is behind Biden Harris and wants no NY or CA Power Plays trying to take over the Vote Machines.

      1. It does seem like some of the different power centers/factions within the Dem party are finding opportunities to undermine one another, doesn’t it? With the huge primary field the Dems had in 2020, there were plenty of people wondering why there were not better options available. I think a lot of it was that those better options had been pre-emptively nuked before the primary process ever started. And now we are seeing that same pre-emptive nuking now, ahead of…something. 2024 is a very long ways off in political terms, but there is a very solid chance senile Joe does not last that long.

        1. Perhaps one faction is going after Kerry to get back for someone going after their guy, either Cuomo or Newsome.

          Perhaps there are more than two factions.

      2. I’m certain much of it runs through the obama team, but they are not the power. Who is that? – is what I would like to know.

        1. Start with Soros and trace the connecting lines between the figures and organizations.

          The powers are never the politicians: they’re just talking heads and pretty faces for the public. For relative values of “pretty”.

          1. Soros gets the label of villainy and he has a large hand in a lot of things.

            Still, I think time and tech have run by him. He’s given away most of his fortune. Forbes says he’s worth 6 billion now.

            Like you said though, look at the tentacles.

            Plus look at the Intelligence Agencies. Comey, Barr, Wray, Strozck, and all those guys are lackeys for someone too. Probably CIA or ex-CIA/FBI that are out of the limelight but still in control.

            0 had ties to several orgs that had CIA ties, including his first job out of college. Someone groomed him and there is a radical black power past like Ayers in there.

            Then there’s the Daley machine in Chicago. Pelosi and Co have their CA faction.

            But back to Soros. Gates and Buffett are worth 250 Billion together now, and their Foundations have about that same amount at hand as well. Several other businessmen are involved there as well.

            Finally, don’t count out the ChiComs and other Foreign enemies (like Iran, who definitely had a hand with ValJar in running 0).

            Finally, who is still funding NeverTrump Media Cucks?

            Koch Brothers? Others?

            Then there are people who have never heard about. Ever hear of the Dart Brothers and their family wealth?

            1. Sorass is a player, just not the real power IMO. As I say, I don’t really know, but I’m guessing the chinese working with a couple of very rich men…

              Were it me, I’d start by dismantling the CIA, FBI, and DOJ, then start fixing the military by promoting sergeants to general and getting rid of most of the rest.

              Every government agency should be eliminated and ones that are actually useful restarted.

              I figure my remaining life would be measured in minutes, not days 🙂

              1. Remaining life would be limited.

                I didn’t realize Reagan was shot so early in his term (March 1981 less than 100 days in). Definitely a Deep State attempt.

                I figured the only reason for not killing Trump was Trump bad his own security plus Big Tech gave them a better way to deal with him.

                1. My own opinion is the bastards were afraid of making Trump a martyr, afraid of the deplorable reaction.

            2. There are definitely multiple factions active in the Dems. A California faction, lots of tech money and Hollywood money. A New York faction with Wall Street money. The Chicago machine. The unions and their money. And the government bureaucrats/Deep State types, including the intel agencies. There is a fair bit of overlap with some of these.

              The Clintons had a machine, but after Trump defeated Hillary a lot of the foreign money dried up for their global slush fund.

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
Daniel Webster

“When I was young I was depressed all the time. But suicide no longer seemed a possibility in my life. At my age there was very little left to kill.”
Charles Bukowski

“A slave is one who waits for someone to come and free him.”
Ezra Pound

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”
Frank Zappa

“The right of a nation to kill a tyrant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.”
John Adams

"A society of sheep must in time beget a government of wolves."
Bertrand de Jouvenel

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged."
GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free."
Donald Surber

"The only way to live free is to live unobserved."
Etienne de la Boiete

"History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid."
Dwight D. Eisenhower

"To put it simply, the Left is the stupid and the insane, led by the evil. You can’t persuade the stupid or the insane and you had damn well better fight the evil."

"There is no better way to stamp your power on people than through the dead hand of bureaucracy. You cannot reason with paperwork."
David Black, from Turn Left For Gibraltar

"If the laws of God and men, are therefore of no effect, when the magistracy is left at liberty to break them; and if the lusts of those who are too strong for the tribunals of justice, cannot be otherwise restrained than by sedition, tumults and war, those seditions, tumults and wars, are justified by the laws of God and man."
John Adams

"The limits of tyranny are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress."
Frederick Douglass

"Give me the media and I will make of any nation a herd of swine."
Joseph Goebbels

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.”
Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it."
NC Reed, from Parno's Peril

"I just want a government that fits in the box it originally came in."
Bill Whittle
