  1. Right on the money regarding your ‘Fatass’ poast, brother Mike!!! I personally consider MM to be the second coming of Jabba The Hutt – apologies to Jabba. YMMV. These fu**ckin’ morons don’t know what they wish for.

    Oh yeah – me too!

    1. Thanks, Pat. I absolutely cannot stand that fat, smarmy son of a bitch, and never could. He’s worked my nerves hard ever since Roger And Me came out, the prick.

  2. I’ll just note the end here since the other Daily is caput.

    UNC lost to Arkansas 4-3. Arkansas will go on to win the NCAA championship.
    Tennesee, the number one ranked team and number one seed, lost.
    ECU, the number 8 seed, lost.

    So all three of the teams I would like to see make it to Omaha are finished.

    1. Arkansas will go on to win the NCAA championship.

      #2 national seed and #2 ranked Stanford got routed by Arkansas 17-2 in game 1.

      I said Arkansas would win the championship for a reason.

  3. The economic outlook I have always had has been one of the remarkable resilience of the American economy. Recessions occur, but most people are still relatively wealthy in a sea of worldwide poverty. Corrections / adjustments take place and the economy comes back around. Most people suffer only mildly, if at all.

    This always assumed the people with their hands on the economic levers were just bumbling fools and the great design of our economic system would correct / adjust even those fools. History would suggest this is true.

    What happens if the people in control are not “bumbling fools” but determined wreckers of all things American?

    Jimmy Carter was a bumbling fool. We recovered.

    Joe Biden is a mirage, not the man in charge. A sinister cabal of dedicated anti-Americans is running the show. Recovery, if it can even occur, may be a long time in coming. It’s a new experiment, one unseen before IMO.

  4. The Price of Gas and Friend/Enemy Distinction

    Written by: Pastor Andrew Isker

    We are now back to a national average gas price of $5.00/gallon. This is a subject of serious concern for almost everyone. Conservatives will (rightly) point to the Biden Administration’s hostility toward domestic oil production and distribution as the primary cause of the growing crisis, yet struggle to frame the problem in terms other than “the naïveté of environmentalist policy.” While the American ruling class is indeed dominated by extremely stupid people, its environmentalism is not “oh whoops we accidentally made gas cost way too much, who could have predicted that!”
          Allowing it to be framed that way while giving conservative satirists plenty of low-hanging fruit to work with, is a massive mistake. It is easy to poke fun at the stupidity of people like Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and AOC. And that’s entirely the problem. These people are not sincerely-yet-naively attempting a solution to what they see as a truly apocalyptic disaster. It is a major mistake to assume they are ever operating in good faith. None of these people actually believe this stuff. They all have massive multimillion-dollar homes on coastlines they say will not exist by the end of the decade. It has been demonstrated ad nauseum that these people fly around in private jets, expending more fossil fuels in a single vacation than the average person will in their entire lives. You have to understand these are deeply cynical people. They do not care about the stuff they say they do. But what do they care about?
          The most important filter to understand politics, especially politics in the Current Year, is Friend/Enemy distinction. Do not look at what these people say, look at what they do. And, look at who benefits from what they do or who is harmed by what they do. Who are the enemies of the occupational regime? Obviously, they will never explicitly state who it is they seek to destroy. Unless the pharmaceutical cocktail that allows the current president brief moments of lucidity is badly messed up, you are never going to hear him say “we want to totally impoverish and destroy the American middle and working class.” But every single day the actions of the regime speak as clearly as possible.
          You need to stop giving these people the benefit of the doubt. They are not stupid, at least not the ones that truly matter. They are not misguided. They are not simply mistaken. They are intentionally malicious. It is not the naïveté of bleeding-heart liberals who get teary-eyed at the thought of punishing violent criminals that have caused the ruling regime to empty prisons and violent crime to exponentially increase. Yes, the naive liberal useful idiots who give them power are easily deluded by propaganda, but those who wield power know exactly what they are doing. They want the people they hate to be punished.
    They want white women and their babies to be run over by violent criminals who never should have been let out of prison. They want violent criminals to be released back into the wild, they want police to be terrified to fight them, and they want you to go to prison if you ever have to defend yourself against them. These are not accidents caused by well-meaning-but-naive libs—this stuff is by design.
          “Climate change” is no different. For his entire presidential campaign, Joe Biden read carefully crafted scripts about reducing the use of fossil fuels, cutting oil production, increasing “clean energy,” etc. That the cost of gasoline is nearly triple what it was when he took office is not some accident of the inscrutable forces of the free market. The people who rule the American people want gasoline and diesel to be unaffordable for most of the country. Regular people—with jobs and families and mortgages—those people are the enemies of the regime. They want things to be more expensive for you. They want you to suffer.
          They not only don’t care if you are impoverished, but it also brings them sick pleasure. You are their enemy. They want to destroy you. This should have been evident during the Wuhan Flu, the Mostly Peaceful Summer of George, and the Most Secure Election in History. What were those events, in truth? Whether you believe those events were 100% organic or they were operations of alphabet agencies and aligned NGOs or (most likely) some mixture of both, it doesn’t matter. What matters is both who benefited from these events and who was harmed. Who benefited from the lockdowns?
    Megacorporations, especially trillion-dollar hedge funds like Blackrock, which got the overwhelming majority of newly printed trillions (while you got a couple of tiny checks). In short, the greatest constituency of the regime benefitted from everything that happened in 2020. Every industry got hundreds of billions for almost nothing, Big Pharma got a huge boon, and the military-industrial complex now likewise gets to cash in on an absurdly expensive (even by War on Terror standards) proxy war with Russia. Everyone who was already filthy rich got even richer, all at your expense. Wall Street, Big Tech, Big Pharma, and especially billionaire retailers like the Waltons and Bezos raked in the dough while their competitors were shut down.
          And who was harmed by the events of 2020 (and beyond)? The greatest enemy of the regime, that’s who: the middle class, the people who have spent their entire lives toiling away to build businesses that provide services and goods and jobs for their neighbors, who donate to the things that make their communities worth living in, churches, local sports teams, youth activities, and service organizations. The regular people who have a stake in the places they live, who love their country and their neighborhoods, who want to live in peace and quiet, who simply want good order. That is who the regime hates the most.
    The few Norman Rockwell Americans who have the audacity to still exist. The regime was happy to allow your businesses to be locked down, while their billionaire friends could stay open. The regime was happy to allow organized violent revolutionaries to burn down your neighborhoods with almost no arrests and no investigation into the machinations behind the scenes. All of this while spending years holding men without trial in solitary confinement for walking through wide-open doors to the U.S. Capitol and spending years investigating an understandably overly exuberant protest of a fraudulent election. You need to filter everything that happens today through the friend/enemy distinction and politics becomes absolutely crystal clear.
          This is why it cost so much to fill up your car and your grocery cart. The people in power hate you and your family. They are stupid and incompetent, but even worse, they are malicious. If you are a normal person, who just wants to have a job and home and family, who loves his country and loves his God, the people in power do not want you to exist. They want to make life as hard as possible for you. They do not want you to have children. And if you somehow can even have children, they want the children you do have to be groomed into disgusting freaks. You have an enemy that hates you. Do not ever forget it.
          But you also have friends. The good news is that more and more people are starting to see they no longer live in the America they grew up in. More people are beginning to see that the America of “at the end of the day everyone is an American on the same team and we just disagree about some things” is dead. And while this is a great tragedy it is a necessity. We have to realize the thing we love is gone before we can begin to bring it back. And many people are now beginning to have that realization.
          This is the very first step in things being made right again. Now you can organize around this principle, knowing who your friends are and who is on your side. From there you can build churches, build neighborhoods and towns, build communities dedicated to rebuilding Christian civilization, communities that will have the strength to weather together the difficult years to come. One in which you can recognize who your friends are and who your enemies are, only then will you have the ability to fight and build.

  5. If you’re concerned about the coming shortage* of 5.56/.223 ammo commonly used in the AR-15 platform consider going to another caliber upper. Ironbear and I had settled on the 300 blackout as a very good round for hunting out to 200 yards, even 300 in a pinch. And of course as a personal protection caliber it exceeds the impact of the 5.56 by quite a bit. Several others are available so check them put.

    *yea, I know. But you can get it now, it’s just pricey. With the feds shutting down excess mil production for general sale it’s going to get scarce and expensive until the private companies can ramp up, if they can ramp up (lots of government caused issues including lack of lead).

  6. “I’m Eric Greitens, Navy SEAL, and today we’re going RINO hunting. The RINO feeds on corruption and is marked by the stripes of cowardice. (Flash bang grenades explode as military team and Greitens enters home.) Join the MAGA crew. Get a RINO hunting permit. There’s no bagging limit, no tagging limit and it doesn’t expire until we save our country.”

    No limit. Some days are just more encouraging than others.

    1. It seems many start out this way until they have ‘the talk” in DC. I believe the rinos/republicants want to lose, they like being the we can’t we don’t have the votes minority and specialize in fundraising. I honestly think they hate us more than the commies.

      1. I honestly think they hate us more than the commies.

        Of course they do. They ARE commies and we are the ENEMY.

        Will Greitens sell out? Can’t say, but there are those that don’t and SEALS have the fortitude to resist. It comes down to their individual moral character, just like it does for everyone else.

        OTOH, not many start out suggesting “RINO Hunting” with no bag limits…

        1. Right on the money Barry. While hope is definitely not a plan, we can be hopeful. OTOH, I’d like to see that hunting permit happen! Yeah, I know – being a bit wishful here.

          And yer absolutely right – they ARE Commies, and they DO want us dead.

          Y’all take care – and keep yer pow…. ya know the rest.

          1. Hey Patrad.
            Yep, we must always maintain hope. Otherwise it will be over.

  7. My wife pointed this out to me this morning:

    This is just North Carolina. Imagine there might have been a few billion more robbed by other hospital systems in other states?

    If you are a doctor, hospital administrator, or a nurse that knew, and didn’t speak up about the scam being perpetrated by the government and aided by the medical system, then you are lower than dirt.

      1. Don’t know why but that link ends up as a blank screen.

        Lets repost it and see if it works better:
        No, same thing, so lets provide it in quotes:

        So, you can copy that and paste in your browser or just click the blank window of Kenny’s link.

        It breaks my heart to read that. The government payed the medical system to murder people.

        1. Just to be clear – they couldn’t kill Trump because they were afraid of the consequences, so they murdered tens of thousands instead.

          And the republican party has aided and abetted it all.

  8. Geez, I was hoping to wake up to a burnt down DC this morning. Throw in LA, SF, Chicago, and a few others and it would be a bonus.

    Maybe those pussy hats are powerless.

    1. Equally bummed here, too, Barry! We can think positive, though!! ;-}

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion.

"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.
