  1. I doubt anyone can make it but just in case, a bit of WW2 –

    There is a British cemetery on Ocrakoke Island (also near Cape Point in Buxton on Hatteras Island) with British sailors interred from the H.M.T. Bedforshire, sank by a German U-boat in 1942. On Friday May 12th there will be a graveside ceremony.

    I will try to be there but I’ll probably be out of the country that week.

  2. Trump versus Desantis, bwahahahaha.

    It will be Desantis who will lead the red wave just like the last red wave. Bookmark this page to see if I am right or right.

    the selection has begun.

    1. DeSantis led a “Red Wave”?

      Do you have any idea what the vote totals for other republican governors up for re-election were? Here, let me help you out:

      State               Candidate                                      %                   MOV

      High                Wyoming                                                                58.3
      Low                 Georgia                                                                  07.6

      Average          all                                                                           25.83

      IOW’s, DeSantis was below the average republican.

      There were 2 or 3 states uncalled when I made this list, so it’s off a bit, but it is substantially correct.

      The truth busts a lot of bubbles.

      1. I’m sure you’re right.
        Lets start at the top –
        Not owned by the CCP:
        Trump
        Paul
        Jordan
        Gaetz
        Nunes
        Flynn

        Some others I’m sure.

        1. And yet, as we saw with Sessions, we can never truly be sure.

          That is a Most Likely list.

          Rand Paul is the only one I’d say is almost certainly MAGA, and that is because he follows in his father’s footsteps, actually practices medicine, takes honest stands, and he cuts his own lawn!

    1. Except that’s their spin, but she got signature verification checks on all ballots and they won’t jive.

      That’s why they want to arrest her. To stop that.

  3. It has been often stated that Putin/russia invaded Ukraine because they were forced into it by the halfwit joe biden/fear of NATO expansion.

    Which I consider to be 100% wrong. If that is the case then it should be time to admit that it was stupid thinking given the results including the latest:

    https://news.yahoo.com/norway-sweden-finland-denmark-struck-104242982.html

    That is a significant thorn in the side of the putin/nato theory. NATO is expanding as a result of putins “3 day special operation” and now the new members are pooling their resources to make for a better offensive and defensive air force.

  4. Those with good memories may remember that “Jaybo” posted an article about the UNC “Fellowship for Exploring Research in Nutrition program, or FERN” that was seemingly closed to white participation.

    I can tell you that they received complaints, including from myself. And I finally have confirmation the program is now open to all, thanks to the group “Do No Harm”:

Notable Quotes

"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

FREEDOM!!!

"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."
Skeptic

"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
