  1. In the next-to-latest Substack post, Mike mentions critter lovers. Which reminds me of this little image which I made in response to an article a few years ago:

  2. Everywhere I read these days makes the case that voting is a “joke”. As I have pointed out over and over, if they can get you to stop voting then they will have no need to steal the election.

    As I have pointed out, the state of NC is returning to RED from deep purple and it is occurring because the voters in NC are throwing out the leftists. We now have a super majority in the legislature overriding commie coopers (gov) vetoes, and a supreme court decidedly right that is even overturning its own previous lefty rulings. In NC the supreme court is elected.

    And yesterday in Charleston SC, a city without a republican mayor since 1877 (that’s almost 1.5 century’s), a republican mayor was elected.
    South Carolina gets an even brighter shade of red.

    So, vote. Make them have to work hard to steal it so that it’s obvious what they did to true believer simpletons.

    Stop waiting on the next Civil War. If you will not get out and vote you will not be fighting a civil war.

  3. Hope everyone has a very nice Thanksgiving Day. I’m thankful for many things, among them Mike and Cold Fury.

    Have a good day Mike, and all the rest of you.

  4. Mike, the gab pay seems broken on my end. Beats me what’s up with it but it’s never been very user friendly.
    So I threw in the towel and created a new paypal account. Let me know if you get a small donation just so I can be sure it works properly. I’ll be darned if I’m ever sure these things work beyond seeing my account noting it went out.

    1. Yeppers, got the PayPal thang earlier, thanks VERY much!

      It’s a shame about Gab Pay; I’ve been rooting for Torba and his enterprise all along, but the simple fact is that PayPal does it one hell of a lot better than GP, even though its political cant isn’t agreeable. Or tolerable, especially for those Righties who had the sum total of money in their PP accounts poached because PP didn’t think they were “liberal” enough. But like it or not, in every other way they leave GP in the dust. That’s why I reinstated the PayPal link here. It’s also why I transfer every PP donation I get to my bank as soon as I see it.

      1. Welcome and glad it arrived.
        I really don’t understand people. It’s just not that hard to do. Once gab refused to recognize my password I tried to reset and nope, not working, no link to reset. Then I tried to open a new account and no go, conflicted with the existing account 🙂
        I give up. PP works even if I hate the bastards.

        1. Resetting a password is child’s play in the coding world.

          You do wonder how they can get these little things that are easy, so wrong.

          1. They did make some big change a few months back and you were supposed to log in at the time and reset your account, or something. I’m gussing that is the root of the problem. But it was always a funky way to do things. You first had to move money from your bank to your gab account, then pay from your gab account. I did it in order to not support the paypal. And I may try it again, but it’s just not the day for fighting crappy websites.
            You should see what the Heels have done. They took a decent website and turned it into the crappiest damn thing I’ve ever seen. It amazes me that people willingly destroy something good just to put a new one in place that looks and works like shit.

            1. I hate Updates now. Something works fine and then they “update” it and you can’t find any of the useful information you got right there in the Home Page. Instead, you need to figure out how to navigate through 3 more screens to find the useful info and it’s presented in a crap way anyway.

  5. Another school record swim for the girls –
    by a man of course. A very pathetic and slow swimmer.

    The winning time in the 100 yard butterfly for this man in a girls swim suit was 57.22 seconds. For perspective I can tell you that one of my sons at age 13 was beating that time pretty handily, and busting it wide open in high school. Yesterday at Thanksgiving dinner the oldest grandson mentioned the pain in the rear of some morning practice. His uncle (the son above) told him about the three times a week morning swim practices that started at 5am and the swimming exceeded 5 miles at competitive speed. Those were just the morning practices…

    The mens record time for the 100y Fly in the NCAA is 42.8 seconds, almost 15 seconds faster and that in a short swim. The mentally ill bastard is just simply pathetic and probably couldn’t beat me if I knocked a bit of the rust off.

    tranny swims slowly, beats girls

    1. How can anyone get any satisfaction in “winning” like this?

      It’s like outplaying a 6 year old in one on one back yard basketball…

        1. Agreed.

          You have to wonder how the parents don’t feel the shame for them and try to get them help.

          The mental illness is genetic?

          1. Beats me. I’m guessing the parents are either left wing kooks or they just give up.

            How do you celebrate a college level win when the time is slower than my 13 year old? Or with a bit of practice, mine at age 70 (I think, haven’t done the fly in a while)?

            The fact of the matter is that any male swimmer that was practicing would be faster than that by a large margin, so this is either a physically challenged male that should be in the special Olympics or a lazy SOB. And with mental illness either way.

    1. Any idea what date that took place?

      I notice the 10 year Treasury yielding 4.10.

      It hasn’t been that low since probably August this year.

      1. I didn’t think about when that was produced when I posted, just figured it was very recent. I’m not even sure where I found it. I can’t find it on Fox business with Maria, but they only allow going back a few days.
        I’ll poke around and see if I can figure where I got it and then maybe I can source the date from fox.

        EDIT: Aug 11th apparently. I thought it was a bit more recent 🙂 I can find every marxist website on the planet trying to debunk the truth complaining about it on that date…
        DDG Search

        1. The interesting thing about it is that it could have been made at any time after Nov 5 2020 and still be as relevant.

          If for some reason I hadn’t been paying attention to the ticker I wouldn’t have picked up on it.

"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
