  1. “And what Trump did in office was significant.

    The media likes to ignore, for example, that President Trump moved the American embassy to Jerusalem and secured historic peace deals in the Middle East.

    They like to ignore that he actually substantively and meaningfully reformed the VA, such that veterans like myself noticed a real difference.

    They like to ignore that President Trump pulled out of bad trade deals and renegotiated others, that he cut job-killing regulations, and that he made America the #1 energy producer in the world.

    The list of accomplishments is long, and the American people saw that President Trump was able to get all this done all in the face of sham impeachments, a Russia collusion hoax, a Republican establishment that undercut him at every turn, and a media that regularly and knowingly lied about him and his team every night. ”

    I would add that he got it done in the face of the NeverTrumpers masquerading as “conservatives”. They are fairly easy to identify now, as they always include “I voted for him twice” while making their denouncements. They stand with the people at “National Review” (spit).

    GREITENS: The Scarcely-Mentioned Reason Trump Is Winning So Big.

    1. Thinking further….
      The deal is, kamala runs for pres with newsome as her VP.
      Why? I don’t know.

  2. The NY Post is owned by Murdoch, like Faux news. It is as fake as the rest of the media.

    Example, in an article about Hurricane Lee, presently down in the Caribbean, working it’s way east and north, the NY Post fake news folks put up a picture to show an example of destruction caused by recent hurricane Idalia.

    Notice any oddities about this hurricane damage picture?,1365&quality=75&strip=all

      1. Not Hawaii but not hurricane damage. Yes, it’s a house fire that then got the house next door. Notice the undamaged boats still on lifts, tables and chairs, etc. Only sign I see of high wind is some plants knocked over. The fire might have occurred while a hurricane was in the area, but there is no hurricane damage.

        Probably Florida coast, but it’s unclear. The lack of waves and the wall tell me it’s a canal.

  3. Mike, if you see this –
    The new look and feel is pretty nice IMO. Takes me a while to get a feel for new things like this, but GOOD JOB!

    1. Thanks much, B-man. Still a few tweaks I’m considering, but it’ll do for right now. This theme is one I’ve had for years now and never used; you can kinda tell from the gradient in the navbar, that real-metal look went out of style LONG ago. I still like it, though. All the newer stuff is flat-looking and strictly utilitarian, which just leaves me cold, I ain’t into it. What can I say, I’m old school like that, even when it comes to website design.

  4. Never said any better than this, or
    Why there are no republican candidates other than Trump worth consideration:

    Of course none of them will admit to the flagrant corrupt actions which we all saw, as polling places were “closed down,” Republican election judges forced out of the room, with only Democrats remaining to tabulate the unmonitored ballots, truckloads of “ballots” being dropped at crucial locations, counts simultaneously stopped in all six of the “swing states” (but no others) where President Trump was comfortably ahead, only to re-open with Biden ostensibly taking the lead by razor thin margins in all six. And the list of brazen indefensible corruption goes on!

    In other words, the republican party was in on the steal because there is no squeal. And they continue to be in on the steal, attempting to STOP TRUMP with the foul play taking place right now.

    There really is only one choice this election.

    The “Establishment” Strikes Back

    1. I will note that where the vote counting were stopped DID NOT reopen and then Biteme got a big vote rise. The VOTES came in WHILE NO ONE WAS SUPPOSEDLY COUNTING. At 3am is a euphemism for almost entirely coordinated vote dumps early in the AM hours across time zones in 6 States.

      Note the NC had “stopped counting” and the Steal For Cooper engineered the same way.

  5. Persecuted (murdered, raped, harassed) Christians in Pakistan:

    Some folks think this is just the normal, but it’s not. Back in the 70’s I had friends that backpacked through the mountains and would go down into the small towns and be treated like royalty. As recently as 2005 I was in Lahore and went to a bar, yes a bar serving alcohol, and it was not a part of a western hotel. The place was inside the city and had some security around it, but pretty open. The two proprietors were Lahore natives. I asked how they managed to serve alcohol given their religion and was informed they were Christians. All the clientele were westerners of course, but this was tolerated and it no longer is. Radical Islam is a thing and it is growing. Bangladesh, the other former India country is also majority muslim (85% or so) and has been resisting the radicals. One wonders how long they will be able to keep the secular governing philosophy. Pakistan is done. My prediction is that before 2050 Pakistan will be destroyed by nukes from India in retaliation.

"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
