  1. If anyone felt Chauvin was guilty and not railroaded should pause upon hearing this news about one of the jurors:

    REVEALED: Chauvin juror who promised judge impartiality now says people should join juries ‘to spark some change’, wore BLM shirt in 2020.
    A juror on the Derek Chauvin trial who told the court that he had no prior knowledge of the George Floyd civil case was photographed last August wearing a shirt that read “Get your knee off our necks” and “BLM.” He stated last week that he saw jury duty as a means to “spark some change.”

    1. BTW if they placed this person inside the jury then how much you want to bet they spent the whole time intimidating the rest to vote guilty and pretty much telling them of the consequences of not following orders?

    1. “He also accuses Carlson of hypocrisy for having acknowledged — over a year ago — that masks work.”

      Well, he gets one thing right.

      Carlson: “Dozens of research papers have proved it”
      I remember when he said that, It was strike one or two. No research paper has ever shown any such thing. Bullshitters say it’s true based on a complete fabrication of evidence. Or because they say so.

      “Does [Carlson] have a death wish — for the rest of us?” Petrow asks.
      I’m not sure about that wimp, Carlson, but I certainly do.

      “Fox News should fire him before his dangerous rhetoric turns deadly, exactly the way Trump’s did on Jan. 6.,” he concludes.

      Deadly. Got that. Protestors that were unarmed, and caused little to no destruction were “deadly”. In fact, the only death came at the hands of a government chimp that murdered Ashli, one of the very peaceful protesters.

      Good for Tucker. Perhaps I’ll start calling balls as well, and if we get to a 4th I’ll tune in again.

      1. Buy they’re really doing their best to hammer home that “deadly January 6th riot” narrative, aren’t they?

        1. Yea. Deadly alright, deadly to us. Their time is coming though if they keep this up. They, the lying press, have just been irritating for many years, but now they’re starting to piss off people.

          Damn lamppost’s are looking real lonely.

    1. Excellent. The first one is actually ZZ Top before they became famous. The beardless Beard is in the back seat, out of view.

      1. Well just damn. I would never know that.

        Some good pictures in there. My 20 pound going on 100 pup thinks she’s looking in the mirror apparently…

    1. “‘Come on in. This space is not so different from your neighborhood Starbucks,’ they write.”

      Well, there’s the problem.

      1. In a nutshell.

        “Wow. You mean I can have all of the overpriced burned tasting coffee I want and Social Justice, too? No thanks.”

        I just want a friggin’ cup o’ Joe when I go out for coffee. Black, or with Half-N-Half. No mocha, latte, soy, or nuthin’, and NO SJWism.

        1. I despise Starbucks, first for what they call coffee, and second for thinking they need to tell me anything.

    2. “How dare those peasants talk back to us when we are preaching at them? HOW DARE THEY!!!!”

        1. Well, this is true. I am however thankful you provide the information to everyone else 🙂

  2. Trapped on the Island. Gasoline is officially out down here. I filled up on Monday night, no lines, plenty of gas (sometimes my wife is right 🙂 ). Today, all the stations in Buxton (Cape Hatteras) are out as are the stations south and north. Avon had one station with premium and a 2-3 hour wait in line as of 2pm. Pulling the cargo trailer this time and no way I can make it home on a tank. Even without the trailer it’s cutting it close unless I drive about 50.

    However, I have been informed I have gas available from an emergency supply in an undisclosed location a little past halfway home due to my eldest son’s having emergency equipment at the ready.

    Renters supposed to be in on Saturday but it’s looking like a lot of them may not make it. We’re hearing there are empty stations along the eastern seaboard.

    It’s the Biden economy stupid.

    Explains what he was doing visiting the peanut man doesn’t it, getting advice on the best way to destroy the economy.

    1. Yeah, I was noticing that over at Breitbart just now.

      Here are the current outages reported by GasBuddy, as of 12:37 Eastern time.

      North Carolina – 65%

      And, shit. They still don’t have that hack fixed yet? The hell did they do to that pipeline system, anyway?

    2. Everywhere was out here yesterday. Today some stations must have gotten some deliveries because I saw lines waiting.

      I filled up by happenstance on Sunday. The other car also has a half a tank. So I’m good for driving for a while, but I don’t have any gas in the lawnmower or the gas can. Luckily I cut the grass on Sun and Tue.

      1. We’re still around $2.49-$2.59 here, but we’re on a different pipeline and source. We’re not on the “hacked” pipeline.

        * Scare quotes because, given the state of what I’ll laughingly call our “information flow”, how do we know there was even a hack?

        1. Pump prices have been rising for 6 months here anyway. They were 2.72 per gallon here only last Fri. I filled up at 2.75 this weekend. I saw 2.88 but most stations had no gas. I think of stations have any it’s 3.00 here.

          Today’s CPI report came in at 4.0% year on year and that was end April data. Biteme and the Pandemics is biting us in the inflated ass already.

          I saw Biteme and The Inflated Asses open for The Flaming Lips in 1986. It had gotten old even back then.

    1. It is remarkable that the current junta has been in place (officially) for less than 4 months…and already we are seeing rapidly rising inflation plus plenty of things (semi chips, gasoline, etc.) are now unavailable at any price.

      Welcome to the third world, America! I hope getting rid of those mean, mean tweets from the BadOrangeMan was worth it.

      1. I saw Mean Tweets open for Stolen Election in Nov 2020. The opening act crushed the headliner. but the headliner stole the show.

  4. When I try to connect to Cold Fury using Brave, Mike, I get a Red Page O’Death with the message:

    Deceptive site ahead
    Attackers on may trick you into doing something dangerous like installing software or revealing your personal information (for example, passwords, phone numbers, or credit cards). Learn more

    If you click through, you get a second Red Page O’Death that says:

    Google Safe Browsing recently detected phishing on Phishing sites pretend to be other websites to trick you.

    You can report a detection problem or, if you understand the risks to your security, visit this unsafe site.

    Not sure what your site has to do with “,” but I’ve seen this on a couple other sites I link to from the aggregator News To Keep You Out of the Camps today.

    1. REALLY? Damn, that’s…interesting, since I’m not even on Blogspot, and never have been. Ever. Weird.

    1. I’ve been using Dissenter for 6+months and it is nearly perfect. I *think* it may be a fork of brave?

      Anyway, I’m not seeing what you see. Is it the browser?

        1. Oh, and the main guy behind Brave, Brendan Eich, was really really butthurt about Dissenter and especially about Dissenter being a fork of his code. I don’t know if he got over it yet.

          1. OK, thought I recalled it was. I can’t imagine a browser much better, the ad blocking and tracking blocking alone is worht the price*.


      1. It’s only Chrome and Chrome-based browsers like Brave. Edge doesn’t do it. I don’t even have Firefox on any of my machines.

        Anyways, things seem back to normal now.

        1. I have edge also but never use it anymore. So, a test from the fascist google? Or did lefty sites get the same treatment?

  5. Well, we made it home without requiring the emergency gas supply. Several of the stations on the island that were out took delivery’s before I left. I topped up last night so had a full tank leaving.

    At the Alligator River / Intercoastal waterway bridge there is a marina and gas station. Regular gas at 3.10 a gallon so I filled up again, about 7 gallons. That would give me some leeway in finding enough to get home. In Rocky Mount I started checking out gas stations, went through about 5 that were empty and then found one with premium only at 4 bucks a gallon. That brought me home with a quarter tank left. Wife’s car is full and my spare car, the Suburban is about 3/4 so we’re good for now. The situation is improving I’m told…
    An extra 1.5 hour drive, but not all for gas. 45 minutes were wasted in Bojangles drive through’s, for orders that were f’d up beyond recognition. Left one stopped at another, same result. Never will I go there again. Apparently they are all run the same sorry way.

"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards."
Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do 'Til the Revolution

Claire's Cabal—The Freedom Forums


"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
