Departures

I’m gonna have to postpone my examination of the TSM piece mentioned below, having unexpectedly run across another one at WRSA that led me to…well, first, we have this obit and remembrance for a legendary Naval aviator:

We wake to the sad news that Snort (Capt Dale Snodgrass, USN-RET, callsign “Snort”—M) died in a crash yesterday. I was honored to interview him in 2000, but it wasn’t our first encounter.

In 1985, I was there in the crowd as a teenager when he awed us all in the Tomcat at the Pratt & Whitney airshow in East Hartford. I have chills this morning thinking of the chills I had then, watching the Tomcat in formation with the other Grumman cats, and I do believe it was a missing man formation.

RIP, Snort. Thank you for taking the phone call from a young writer with no credentials, but who was thrilled beyond words to interview the legend.

I imagine so. Follows, a repost of his 2010 interview with CAPT Snodgrass, which runs below one of the most famed photos of Tomcat derring-do ever captured, which I cannot possibly resist running here.

You can practically hear those jet-jock sized Big Brass Ones all a-clank just looking at that pic. On to the interview.

If you’ve researched information on the F-14, it is pretty likely that the name Dale Snodgrass has appeared somewhere in what you’ve read. “Snort” is virtual legend in the Tomcat community, and with more than 4,800 hours in the F-14, he is the most experienced Tomcat pilot in the world. Over a 26-year career in Naval Aviation, he had moved from being the first student pilot to trap an F-14 on a carrier to commanding the US Navy’s entire fleet of Tomcats as the Commander of Fighter Wing Atlantic. Now retired, Snort is on the airshow circuit, flying a wide range of aircraft, from the F4U and P-51 to the F-86, MiG-15, and MiG-17.

The accolades for Snort’s flying are long and distinguished…twelve operational Fighter Squadron/Wing tours, including command of Fighter Squadron 33 during Desert Storm, the Navy’s “Fighter Pilot of the Year” in 1985, Grumman Aerospace’s “Topcat of the Year” for 1986, a US Navy Tomcat Flight Demonstration Pilot from 1985-1997, and numerous decorations for combat and peacetime flight.

This is all good stuff, well worth reading in full if you’re any kind of military-aviation guy at all. But then we get to the part that stopped me COLD and made my eyes bug out comically.

What was your most tense moment in the 26 years?

From a combat perspective, it was when I had a flameout over Iraq while executing a last ditch surface-to-air missile defense. I was leading a night Fighter Sweep in support of an A-6 strike on a power plant on the north side of Baghdad.

As I said, the story of Snodgrass’ close encounter with an Iraqi SAM, which caused a flameout that in turn brought on a 15k-foot altitude drop, leading to an attempted air-start of the dead engine whilst flying through the middle of a thick triple-A barrage, is all good, gripping stuff for sure. But what slammed me betwixt the orbs was the part I bolded in the last line. Because see, I happen to know a little something myself about that A-6 strike he mentioned. In order to explain it, though, we’re going to need to make a little side-trip here, to another obit from 2015.

Reggie Parks Carpenter, 51, Captain, United States Navy, died from sudden cardiac arrest in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on February 3, 2015. Captain Carpenter, from Cherryville, North Carolina, graduated from the University of North Carolina in 1985 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communications. He was commissioned an officer in the Navy via the Aviation Officer Candidate School, and received his aviator “Wings of Gold” in 1987. Captain Carpenter, also known as “Regbo” to fellow aviators, bravely served in the defense of the United States for 29 years.

He flew tactical missions in three jet aircraft, in four operational squadrons, and over six aircraft carrier-based deployments, including one as an exchange pilot with the French Navy.

A graduate of the U.S. Naval War College with a Masters in National Security and Strategic Studies, the personal highlight of Captain Carpenter’s career was his tour as commanding officer of Strike Fighter Squadron EIGHTY THREE (VFA-83), an F/A-18C Hornet squadron at Naval Air Station Oceana in Virginia Beach, VA. His final tours of duty, which he also enjoyed immensely, were in military diplomacy. He served as Naval Attaché to France, from 2007 to 2011, and to Argentina, from 2012 to 2015.

Captain Carpenter was a highly decorated naval aviator who earned many awards and medals during his career, including the Distinguished Flying Cross. A devoted, loving husband and father, he was also a kind, passionate man with quick wit and boundless zest for life. Captain Carpenter is survived by his wife, Suzanne, and daughters, Avery and Caroline; mother, Barbara Cannon; sister, Kelly Stewart; brother-in-law, Bob Stewart; and many loving friends and colleagues from all over the world.

A funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. on Thursday, April 23, 2015, at Vienna Presbyterian Church, 124 Park St. NE, Vienna, VA. Interment with full military honors will take place at 3 p.m. on Friday, April 24, 2015, at Arlington National Cemetery.

You CF Lifers might begin to see where all this is going, I bet. For the shavetails, nuggets, and noobs, this oughta help clear things up.

The CF community suffered a serious loss yesterday, although most of you might not know about it. My “cousin”, Captain Reggie Carpenter, USN, died suddenly in Buenos Aires, where he was serving as naval attache, capping off a distinguished three-decade career as a naval aviator and diplomat.

He wasn’t really my cousin; he was actually my first cousin’s cousin, but his family and mine had been tightly intertwined for our whole lives; our fathers, uncles, and other kinfolk were all close friends from childhood, and the subsequent generations have all retained a sort of extended-family relationship ever since.

Those of you who have been around these parts a good while may remember him as “Regbo,” his flyboy call sign, or simply as “Cuz.” He did a fair bit of writing for the site back in its early years under those handles; he preferred the anonymity of them, for obvious reasons.

Y’all also might remember a post I did years ago from NAS Oceana, where the band had gone to play Reggie’s change of command party at the O-club there. He was taking over Rampager squadron, VFA 83, after having served as XO of the Sunliners. We didn’t get paid for the gig, or at least not in money; we got paid with twenty minutes apiece in the F/A-18 simulators instead. Which just made it one of the most richly remunerative shows I ever did. Hell, just hanging out at the O-club, meeting and hearing the sea stories of these “casual American heroes” as Reg called them, was payment aplenty.

He was a damned fine pilot, flying the A6 Intruder in the first sorties of the first Gulf War, then F14s, then Super Etendards off the Foch for a year as part of the officer-exchange program with the French. He graduated to the Hornet after that, and stayed in ’em for the remainder of his career. He was invited to join the Blue Angels and even toured with them awhile while he considered the offer; he eventually decided against it, and went to the War College instead. Back in his college days he got one of the highest scores ever on the Navy’s Pilot Aptitude test, and just moved on ever upwards from there.

Reg had a heart attack either on his way to or shortly after arriving at work yesterday morning in Buenos Aires (the family is still waiting for details on that); he’d just returned from an African safari with his beloved family. He was due to retire next spring; in fact, the last conversation I had with him was shortly before he left for the Africa trip. He asked if I wanted to attend his retirement party, and I assured him I did. We were talking about maybe having the band play for the festivities, in fact, and I was looking forward to seeing him again. He was 52, which is way too damned young to lose a guy like him. Hard to believe he’s gone so quick. He’ll be missed by all who knew him.

Rest easy, Reg, until we meet on the other side to pick some guitar and talk fighters and politics again. Your whole family was extremely proud of you, as well they might be, and your friends were glad and grateful to know you. Much love to you and your family, brother.

That, of course, is part of the obit I wrote for Reg right here at CF, which includes a photo of him leaning nonchalantly against his own personal F/A-18 that I took at NAS-JAX during a post-gig visit we paid him there once.

So here’s the payoff: that aforementioned A-6 strike over Baghdad on opening night of Desert Storm? Well, guess who else was out there along with Snort Snodgrass? Yep, you got it: none other than one Reggie “Regbo” Carpenter, that’s who.

Reg later sent a somewhat illicit cockpit video home to his (also my) Uncle Gene from that eventful night, along with a letter detailing a harrowing misadventure when his Intruder was struck by lightning (!!!) on the way back to the carrier, knocking out every electronic gee-gaw and instrument save for the gyrocompass. After being asked by the Midway’s comm shack if he wanted to attempt a trap on the carrier deck—sans all instruments and lights, at night, in a storm, no less—Reg opted for what’s known as “the better part of valor” and diverted to the airbase at Riyadh instead, where he landed his damaged aircraft without further trouble.

And that concludes tonight’s amazing tale of serendipitous coinkydink. You really just never know what you’re going to run across out there on the Innarnuts, do ya?

Men like Reg and Snodgrass are a breed apart for sure—capable men, courageous men, dauntless men, men without an ounce of give-up in ’em. Men whose vocabulary assuredly does NOT include discouraging words like “can’t” or “impossible.” As I so often say around here, we need all of such men we can get, and will never have enough of them. RIP, CAPT Snodgrass, and farewell. You too, Reggie.

That makes two of us

I’m with him.

The trouble with researching anything having to do with Covid-19 is that from the very beginning, the numbers have been falsified. When a person died in a motorcycle accident, who also had asymptomatic Covid, determined by a test that was being improperly used, i.e., at greater than 25 cycles, above that it is wildly inaccurate it, (the PCR test for Covid was usually run at 35-45 cycles) was listed as a Covid death. This was done to create fear and panic, drive lockdowns and mask mandates, all to the benefit of the government, it was a test of the people. As early as May 2020 Colorado had to reduce the number of Covid deaths by 25%. Coincidentally, Alameda County, in California, had to reduce their number of deaths by the same 25%. I doubt that the numbers were inflated by the same rate as a matter of coincidence.

No one knows exactly how many people died of Covid across the nation, so comparing those deaths with the deaths of those taking the injection is impossible. The interest of the state and the medical community pushing the injection leads one to believe that the numbers of those adversely affected by the injection would be similarly corrupted downward as the Covid deaths were pushed upward. But using what we have available from the CDC and VAERS reporting system, of the roughly 500,000 people who have so far had adverse reactions to the injection, 1.7% of them resulted in death. To keep the message clear, 1.7% does not reflect the percentage of people dying from the shot, just 1.7% of the people who suffered adverse reactions to it.

If 161,000,000 Americans have received the injection and there have been 11,000 deaths as a result that’s not that far off as a percentage of those who supposedly died of Covid where they were otherwise healthy with no comorbidities. That was enough to shut down the entire Western world, but a similar 99.993% survivability of the injection is regarded as “safe and effective.”

Either .003% deaths caused by a virus is nothing to worry about or .003% deaths caused by the injection is enough to stop the program in its tracks. It cannot logically be both.

Some of you greybeards among CF Lifers may remember the swine-flu panic of ’76; certain echoes from that clown-car act resound pretty powerfully today.

Swine flu ‘debacle’ of 1976 is recalled
Warren D. Ward, 48, was in high school when the swine flu threat of 1976 swept the U.S. The Whittier man remembers the episode vividly because a relative died in the 1918 flu pandemic, and the 1976 illness was feared to be a direct descendant of the deadly virus.

“The government wanted everyone to get vaccinated,” Ward said. “But the epidemic never really broke out. It was a threat that never materialized.”

What did materialize were cases of a rare side effect thought to be linked to the shot. The unexpected development cut short the vaccination effort — an unprecedented national campaign — after 10 weeks.

The episode triggered an enduring public backlash against flu vaccination, embarrassed the federal government and cost the director of the U.S. Center for Disease Control, now known as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, his job.

The pandemic fears of the time and the resulting vaccine controversy may be fueling some of the public’s — and media’s — anxiety about the current outbreak, said health officials who recalled the previous event.

Do note that the “current outbreak”rferenced above is NOT the Fauxvid scam. It’s actually the swine-flu rerun from 2009 they’re talking about.

Starting to sounding familiar at all yet? If not, just cool your jets, people, we ain’t anywheres NEAR done.

Ward said his family discussed the vaccine in 1976 and decided not to get it. If a vaccine is ordered for this latest threat, he said, “I’m not getting it. I felt back then like it was a bunch of baloney.”

The swine flu brush of 1976 — some call it a debacle — holds crucial lessons for the government and health officials who must decide how to react to the new swine flu threat in the days and weeks ahead.

For starters, officials must keep the public informed. They must admit what they know and don’t know. They must have a plan ready should the health threat become dangerous. And they must reassure everyone that there is no need to worry in the meantime.

Okay, that’s a departure from the past year and a half’s shitshow: instead of trying to “reassure everyone that there is no need to worry,” today’s goobermint “health” and Enemedia apparatchiki have gone well out of their way to sow as much panic as they could.

Officials should be prepared for plenty of second-guessing, especially for any decisions regarding vaccination, which was at the core of the 1976 controversy, said Dr. David J. Sencer, the CDC director who led the government’s response to the threat and was later fired.

Fired, eh? Gee, if only somebody had pulled then-President Trump aside in January of 2017 and quietly re-introduced him to that word. Herr “Doktor” Fauci would have long since been frogmarched to the exit—him, and a whole bunch of others along with him— and we’d all be much better off for it.

“There were good things and bad things about it,” said Sencer, who is retired and lives in the Atlanta area. “People have to make science the priority. They have to rely on science rather than politics.”

The question of whether politics overtook science in 1976 has been the fodder of books, articles and discussions for 33 years.

Whoooa NELLIE. Not repeating, perhaps, but rhyming all to hell and gone. And now we come to the part (bold mine) that’s really gonna ring your bell.

At the CDC, Sencer solicited the opinions of infectious disease specialists nationwide and, in March, called on President Ford and Congress to begin a mass inoculation.

The $137-million program began in early October, but within days reports emerged that the vaccine appeared to increase the risk for Guillain-Barre syndrome, a rare neurological condition that causes temporary paralysis but can be fatal.

Waiting in long lines at schools and clinics, more than 40 million Americans — almost 25% of the population — received the swine flu vaccine before the program was halted in December after 10 weeks.

More than 500 people are thought to have developed Guillain-Barre syndrome after receiving the vaccine; 25 died. No one completely understands the causes of Guillain-Barre, but the condition can develop after a bout with infection or following surgery or vaccination. The federal government paid millions in damages to people or their families.

Got that, folks? In 1976, 25 deaths were all it took to bring a vaccine program to a screeching, smoking halt. But that was then, and this is…not. Today, with untold thousands of deaths caused by the untested, unproven, and extremely shady chemical cocktail which they claim is a “vaccine” but which does none of the things actual vaccines are by definition supposed to do, our FederalGovCo “health” bureaucracy prefers to continue imperiously pressuring rightly-skeptical Americans into taking the NotVaxx; censoring all discussion of the various issues involved; and blacklisting those of us who have absolutely no intention of surrendering to the dubious-at-best mass propaganda campaign and submit to the Jab.

This is what is some call “progress.” Back to TL for the closer.

These globalists feel above the rest of humanity. They have no compassion or interest in letting the rest of us alone. We are a bother and a nuisance. They don’t see the rest of us as human beings, we are just the masses that eat too much, drive too much and destroy everything with our multitude. In their minds, if they could get robots to serve them food, laugh at jokes and fill the jet with fuel, etc., they could get rid of 90% of humanity and wouldn’t it be so cool to ski Aspen with just friends and family?

Keep in mind they have tried to reduce the population with wars and internal conflict, constantly finding ways to divide us. They’ve done it by destroying the nuclear family. They’ve done it by trying to pit white against black, black against Asian, Hispanic against black. They’ve done it with the influx of drugs, the increase in sexual slavery and abortion. Wherever there’s a chance to increase war or reduce population, they’ve facilitated it in any way they could. If a world war won’t do it without destroying everything they want to keep, perhaps a world-wide poisoning would be better.

Trust us, sayeth the goobermint? Not on your life, sez I.

I think it’s easier to eliminate those with such a mindset than to wipe out ninety percent of humanity to accommodate it. But that’s just me.

Not just you, buddy. And at the risk of pointing out something entirely obvious here, allow me to say that—purely as a practical matter—it would be a lot easier to eliminate THEM instead. There are far fewer of ’em, for one thing, which spares our precious Gaia from the serious harm having to dig a bunch of mass graves or burn all those greasy corpses would cause. Plus, in ethical terms it’s no more than what the rotten bastards deserve.

Oldie but goodie

Aesop reruns an old post of his from 2018, a remembrance of the first moon landing on its anniversary, and it’s an inspiring read.

Fifty-two years ago today, and just a few hours from now, is the exact anniversary of when 50,000 steely-eyed missile men, crew-cutted geeks with pocket protectors, test pilots, fighter pilots, and hundreds of metric tons of raw testosterone kicked the rest of the world’s ass right to the bottom of the heap, going back to the dawn of time, from the moment that Eagle landed, to when this guy’s foot stepped off the LEM ladder.

Neil Armstrong, ace X-15 test pilot, and mission commander of Apollo XI, became the first man from earth to ever set foot on the Moon, and if and until we ever get people to Mars, he put every explorer in history, and even every guy to follow, below him on what Tom Wolfe correctly called “the top of the pyramid.”

He was there because he and his sidekick, lunar module pilot, and outside-the-box revolutionary thinker Buzz Aldrin had managed to land the lunar module manually, off course, and with mere seconds remaining for landing before a crash-tastrophe, because you don’t fly 250,000 miles to puss out at the last 12 seconds, just for such piddling concerns as running out of fuel.

As I said, a fine read, well worth a look in. But the real reason I brought it up was so I could rerun something my own self, something near and dear to my coal-black heart: the absolutely immortal vid of eternal badass Aldrin poking one of those stupid-ass moon-landing deniers right in the snoot.



Heh. Fatass gets all up in the grill of a bona fide American hero and defames him as “a coward and a liar,” Fatass gets what he has coming to him without further ado. It’s beautiful, that’s what.

I mean, the nerve of that honking, sebacious tub of goo. If Aldrin had shot the bastard down and left him for dead on the sidewalk, I’da stood up and cheered till my throat was sore. As it is, that footage ain’t NEVER getting old as far as I’m concerned, not if I live to be a hunnert and fitty. What’s captured therein is, basically, everything that’s wrong with America today juxtaposed with everything that was once right about it. They just don’t make ’em like Buzz Aldrin anymore, folks, which is precisely why we are where we now are.

Fly the friendly freaky skies

Al in all, it’s just another brick in the wall.


The story:

The “Woke” and Transgender movements are helping to destroy the country and it just might help to damage Jet Blue.

The airline now allegedly allows male flight attendants to dress up as women.

Jet Blue Airlines, which did announce that they were going to reinvent what it’s like to fly ‘coach,’  appears to have caved to suspected pressure that presumed gay or transgender men have asked to dress like female flight attendants.

Ironically, one of their slogans is ‘Inspiring Humanity.’

What the hell, why the fuck not. Although I do have to wonder if, given the guy in the pic’s overall lumberjack-ish appearance, he really is a mentally-derailed Gender Negotiable type intent on inflicting his degeneracy on Jet Blue and all who sail in her, or instead just some poor male model desperate enough for work to hire himself out to JB and publicly beclown himself in such spectacular fashion.

I have a good friend who used to hang around the H-D shop a lot back in the Aulden Thymes, fella we all used to call Franky Load In The Pants for reasons I shan’t specify right now (trust me, it’s hilarious), who flies 7-7-7’s for Jet Blue nowadays. I’ll have to inquire next time I see him what his thoughts are on this. I can readily imagine, knowing him as I do, but seeing him express himself on this issue is bound to be a real scream.

Then again, maybe I should just leave well enough alone. Frankie has always been known as quite the practical joker, see. He once got suspended when he was flying twin-turboprop puddlejumpers for USAir some years back, for strategically placing several of those plastic fast-food packs of Texas Pete under a toilet seat in the Ladies’ of the USAir office, arranging them in such a way that they’d burst and squirt all over the victim’s legs when sat upon…or so he thought. To Frank’s horror, a burly bull-dagger av-mech went in to take a whiz (standing up, I’m sure) whilst he was standing in the office jawboning with a few fellow USAir employees, all of them just loitering around waiting to see what would end up happening.

What ended up happening: Miz Muscledyke plopped her big, granite-muscled ass heavily down and immediately got herself an agonizing Texas Pete snootch-bath. She was extremely irate about this, because good lord who wouldn’t be. Having one’s delicate naughty parts unexpectedly doused with fire-liquid would sorely tax anybody’s sense of humor, a trait with which angry flatrockers aren’t noted for being overmuch blessed in the first place.

Frank later said the second he heard said man-hater’s throaty, enraged bellows offering perfectly credible vows of swift and deadly vengeance, he ran out the door and away as if he had a no-shit T- Rex on his heels, which in a sense he damned sure did. The offended ladyman knew quite well who was responsible for the painful hot-sauce douche; all the evidence anybody who knew him would ever have needed to identify the culprit was the presence nearby of Frank and a crew of several others standing around, smirking and sniggering each time some poor dame walked even somewhat close to the little goils’ room.

The victim reported Frank’s ass to Higher with a quickness, and said ass very nearly got canned over it. Instead, the airline let him off with a month at leisure sans pay and a black mark on his Permanent Record, to the surprise of one and all. Not long after the Texas Pete incident—plus an unfortunately timed followup episode involving a belly cargo-door that Frank neglected to properly secure, which resulted in a barrage of suitcases and loose freight all over the end of the runway and neighboring warehouse roofs once the aircraft was wheels-up and climbing to cruise altitude—it was up, up, and away to Jet Blue for Pranky Franky, where near as I can determine he seems to have refrained from further actionable mischief. So far.

So yeah, as a preventive measure to assist him in staying out of trouble with his current employers and colleagues, I believe I’ll just keep my trap shut about this revoltin’ development. If Frankie Load has any opinions on it, he can share them with me on his own hook, without any prompting from me. I’m no troublemaker, nosirree.

Update! I should probably point out, in Frank’s defense, that he is actually a very talented and conscientious pilot, having been in the cockpit of one type of aircraft or another ever since he was but a young chap. Frank’s dad was a pilot also, and started teaching his son early on. Frank himself owns a Cessna 172 and has for years, spending a tremendous amount of time slipping the surly bonds both professionally and recreationally. I’ve never flown with him myself, but Goose has and says he’s a very skilled pilot, against all the expectations one might reasonably form from the above tale. My brother, a licensed, multiengine and IFR-rated flight instructor and a natural talent himself, also commends Frank as being one of those people who has that natural gift for it that distinguishes the true pilot from the run-of-the-mill hackabouts who will most likely end up dead someday because they ran out of gas. Frank’s just a goof, that’s all.

Spicy time cometh, and that right soon

Shit’s about to get really, really REAL, folks.

BREAKING: Biden Admin Calls for UN to Investigate ‘Racism’ on US Soil
Biden regime Secretary of State Anthony Blinken has officially called for the United Nations to occupy American Soil in the name of investigating ‘racism’ in the United States today.

“Responsible nations must not shrink from scrutiny of their human rights record. Rather, they should be transparent with the intent to grow and do better. That is why I’m announcing a formal invitation for @UN Special Rapporteur on contemporary forms of racism to visit the U.S.” Blinken tweeted out Tuesday night.

“I urge all U.N. member states to join the United States in this effort, and confront the scourge of racism, racial discrimination, and xenophobia,” the Secretary continued. The seemingly sudden move is in the wake of the UN Resolution to condemn racism and racist police brutality earlier in the day. Secretary Blinken expressed support for the measure.

The unprecedented announcement comes as the Biden Regime advocates ‘anti racist’ ideals as a way of stifling political opposition. National File has covered the Biden Regime’s anti-white practices in the military, economic subsidies, support for critical race theory, and more.

What is perhaps even more troubling is that Biden is inviting the Globalist United Nations to come occupy US soil, with the potential to even propose laws and policies to Biden and the government. As the Biden Regime tightens it’s grip on power, the invitation of foreign agents to U.S. soil may represent a major escalation.

Gee, ya think? Okay, I have questions:

  • SRSLY? I mean, come on, SRSLY?!?!
  • Can they REALLY be this stupid, this oblivious, this blindly arrogant?
  • Do they not realize that the very idea of UN boots—no, nobody’s mentioned actual Blue Helmet gangstas yet, just a Special Rapporteur, whatever the fuck that may be, but does anybody imagine they won’t be bringing it up in due course? Baby steps, people, baby steps—on the ground right here in the US has always been absolute anathema to millions upon millions of Americans, who have long and rightly considered it the final straw, the spark that will set the national fuse alight?
  • Do they just not give a damn?
  • Are they so far gone in wet-dreams of total and unchallengeable capital-P Power that they truly expect us to sit still for this shit without demur?
  • Have they forgotten about the word “intolerable” and the pivotal role it played in America’s Founding? Do they even know what the word means?
  • Can it actually be their intention to instigate armed, to-the-death revolt against the illegitimate FUSAn tyranny? If not, then what would they be doing differently if it was?

Whatever the answers to the above questions might be, our would-be masters know not what they do. Methinks they’re making a bad, bad mistake here. This is precisely the sort of thing that will serve to activate those who have been waiting, ever more impatiently, for just such a provocation to set certain things in motion; to alert those more-cautious types who are still on the fence as to their dire peril; to awaken those who are not yet quite convinced of the harsher realities of the situation, the true nature of The Enemy, and who still cling to the dear delusion of a FederalGovCo worthy of their trust and allegiance.

We’ve all debated, all too many times, propositions along the lines of, “If Americans took (the Russiagate scam, impeachment, FBI/CIA/DoJ criminality, Barr/Durham theater, lockdowns/mask mandates, stolen elections, etc) without acting, then they’ll go along with (the latest outrage) too.” Many of us have speculated on exactly what might be taking Real Americans so long, what more could possibly be required to get them off their duffs and doing the necessary. Looks like we’re soon going to have our answers.

I’ve offered my own ideas on what the straw that breaks the camel’s back might actually be, and have been forced by developments to revise my opinion more than once. At the risk of making myself look even more foolish than I already do, I’ll state for the record that I’m quite sure that the abominable affront of our own fucking government *puke* bringing in proven-corrupt UN officials onto American soil for the purpose of “investigating” guiltless whypeepo on their innate and unacceptable RAYCISS!™ tendencies WILL bring direct and immediate consequences. Count on it.

Preview of coming attractions

Extremely, extremely, EXTREMELY apposite to the FUSA’s domestic situation.

VIDEOS: Armed South African Citizens Engage And Repel Mobs Of Violent Rioters
“Yeah guys, no time to play here. We’re gonna do what we have to do.”

A wave of rioting, looting, and violence tore across South Africa this week after former president Jacob Zuma was jailed, with mobs setting fire to and ransacking every storefront in sight. Unlike the U.S. Black Lives Matter riots in 2020, however, where police often protected looters and where armed citizens were arrested for defending property, citizens in South Africa have been allowed to protect themselves in several neighborhoods.

Video footage shows citizens engaging a massive contingent of looters on a roadway, using shotguns that appear to be loaded with birdshot and less-lethal ammunition. In another clip townspeople can be seen confronting looters with handguns on a busy street.

Due to the widespread nature of the looting, civilians have taken to establishing roadblocks so that rioters may be searched for stolen goods and proof of having been involved in crimes.

Several scenes of the riots were indistinguishable from those that ravaged Minneapolis, Minnesota in 2020.

And if you think that’s mere coincidence, you have a lot more thinking to do. A lot. The photo at the head of the piece should chill every aware and awake Real American to the bone:

How many Normal, workaday Americans are staring into a very similar view, or will be soon? Yeah, it’s been by and large confined to divrsity-overrun shitlib dumps like Portland and Minneapolistan so far, but that won’t last.

USS Batshit grounded on the shoals of reality

I have no words.

Biological Male “Mother” Attempts To Breastfeed Newborn Birthed By His Biological Female “Boyfriend”
“The baby has been able to latch, but I have not been able to produce any milk…”

Thanks captain obvious! Who knew that a biological male couldn’t produce breastmilk?

Determined to shove their depravity down the throat of their newborn, both literally and figuratively, the mentally ill new parents express dismay at not being able to breastfeed their baby naturally. In hindsight maybe “dad” should’ve kept his breasts when he decided to keep his uterus. Just a thought.

The new parents have refused to accept identification documents for their newborn baby because it would require the female who gave birth (wearing glasses) to be listed as the mother and not the male (black hair, pretending to breastfeed) who did not give birth.

Tearful but with a stiff upper lip, the new parent confidently exclaims, “we’re gonna supplement the feeding with formula so that my baby is still getting the nutrients that they need”. 

Perhaps daddy-mama is confused by the word supplement, which Merriam-Webster dictionary defines as ‘something that completes or makes an addition.’ Cant supplement something if you’ve nothing, to begin with. The baby won’t be supplemented by formula, it will be sustained solely by it!

Astonishingly enough, this appears NOT to be a Babylon Bee article, nor is it from the venerable, universally-revered Weekly World News. Which I think is a goddamned shame, for several reasons.

They ARE coming for us

As Francis notes, via a Glenn Beck quote: First they nudge, then they shove, then they shoot.

Why is this administration so insanely anxious to get everyone vaccinated, even children and people who had COV?

More and more, we hear people demanding unconstitutional and mandatory vaccinations. They are just parroting what they hear. Americans have been terrorized into thinking this is appropriate.

Will the government come after us over the flu and pneumonia next?

As has already been demonstrated to at least my own satisfaction, they will use whatever pretext they feel they need to to put you securely, completely, and permanently under the FederalGovCo thumb. Count on it, people.

A CNN medical analyst, Dr. Jonathan Reiner said on Thursday that it’s time has come for private industry to demand that employees take “the jab” or face the economic ruination of themselves and their families.

In other words, you’re a murderer if you don’t do what they say.

CNN’s Erin Burnett asked Reiner about it on “OutFront.”

“Given where things are going, is it time to move on from saying please to mandating?” Burnett asked.

Reiner responded, “I do think it’s time to start mandating vaccines. And I think that the private industry and private organizations will do that. At GW university, where I work, starting in fall, you can’t be on campus unless you’re fully vaccinated.”

“We’re at the part of the pandemic now where the problem in this country is that 150 million Americans are not vaccinated. Half of that number is less than 18 years of age. But let’s look at the adults. Seventy-five-million adults have chosen not to get vaccinated.”

He added, “That choice has consequences. Now, we can’t force you to take a jab in the arm. But there are many jobs, perhaps, that can prevent you from working if you decide not to get vaccinated. So I think we need to be more proactive, and we will see industry take the lead in this.”

To quote Porretto again, the hour of decision is upon us. I can only speak for myself, but I repeat: when the Gestapo swine come to force their Mark Of The Beast injection on me, they better make goddamned sure to bring help along. I do NOT intend to go gently into that good night, and anyone reading this shouldn’t either.

Oh, and speaking of using any pretext they can conjure, no matter how ludicrous, to pimp the 666 Shot.

President Joe Biden’s administration responded to protests in Cuba against the Communist regime on Sunday by issuing a statement through a minor official commending protests “about rising COVID cases/deaths & medicine shortages.”

On Sunday, protests broke out in Havana and several other Cuban cities, during which people chanted “Freedom!” and “Down with the dictatorship!” while marching against Communist Party institutions. The New York Times noted that while the demonstrations were triggered by “food and medicine shortages,” they also “openly protested against the Communist government” for the first time in nearly 30 years. Some activists called it the largest spontaneous popular protest since Fidel Castro took power in 1959, with protesters openly denouncing the regime of Miguel Diaz-Canel.

The administration’s statement ignored democracy and freedom altogether.

Well, of course it did. Why on earth would it not? Both of those are total irrelevancies in the FUSA now, not even worthy of making jokes about.

Cubans do not have the “right to peaceful assembly”; like many rights in the Cuban Constitution, it exists only in theory.

Yeah, well, hate to bust your bubble and all pal, but that applies equally well to certain other toilet-paper Constitutions I could name.

But let’s not beat around any bushes regarding why the clumsily-handled marionette Biden might make such a ridiculous statement. Our Mordor On The Potomac overlords fell short of their July 4 target badly; “vaccination” rates have slowly ground to a halt since; and the Shadow Men are perfectly willing to humiliate both themselves and their witless sock-puppet so as to keep the skeer on us as best they can, for as long as they can make it last.

I will say this in no uncertain terms, so there’s no mistake about it:

  • I WILL NOT SUBMIT to being injected with the phony, dangerous “vaccine” under ANY circumstances, and
  • I WILL NOT willingly, peaceably just sit back and starve because of that perfectly lawful, reasonable, and personal choice; there WILL be repercussions for any such demand, mandate or expectation, whether governmental or corporate, and you WILL NOT like them

Period. Fucking. DOT. I’m happy to take as my inspiration one of the best scenes from one of the greatest movies ever:



‘Nuff said. Bring it, motherfuckers. Just you try.

Busted redux

Imagine my surprise.

Some of the members of a gay men’s chorus that released a controversial viral video in which the singers promised to “corrupt your kids” and “convert your children” appear to be convicted pedophiles, according to research conducted by The Western Journal.

The chorus roster and board of directors of the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus were apparently removed from the group’s website around the time these revelations became public.

The chorus also has an outreach program that “brings [the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus] into elementary, middle, and high schools across the Bay Area to share a message of love, inclusivity, and strength.”

The Western Journal reached out to the group via email and social media on Friday.

The “Contact Us” page on the group’s website also appears to have been removed.

The choir was asked to comment on the accusations, whether there are in fact convicted pedophiles on its roster, why the chorus roster was removed from the website and if the group conducts background checks on members before sending them to places like schools where children are present.

The group did not immediately respond to our request for comment.

No, I just bet they didn’t. And won’t, if they can possibly avoid it. The KiddleDiddle Singers are in full-on defensive-crouch mode now, hoping against hope that this will all just dry up and blow away soon without too much more damage. That unenviable situation is what can happen when one lets the little head do all the thinking for the big head, as the old joke goes.

Great Recession redux

Arthur Sido says it ain’t gonna reset itself, y’know.

Something I return to again and again is that most of our fellow Americans, Democrats and Republicans alike, view politics in a deeply skewed manner. Most garden variety liberals think that Big Business is bad and we need more government to restrain it. Most NormieCons think Big Government is bad and we need more free markets to prosper. What neither side gets is that Big Business and Big Government are the same damn thing. Big Government loves Big Business because Big Business enriches politicians. Big Business loves Big Government because the dot gov types help Big Business to be more profitable. The last thing Big Business wants are free markets. They want state controlled markets that give them advantages in return for political donations. At Executive Board meetings for the National Housing Conference, non-profit types and corporate shills sit side by side and figure out ways to loot the American tax payer.

We are told that initiatives like using Freddie and Fannie to “help” low income Americans is a matter of “justice” and “equity”. The article twice mentions the “the racial wealth gap” as if giving blacks mortgages they can’t or won’t repay will make them wealthier. How exactly does it increase wealth to have blacks and mestizos getting mortgages that they end up defaulting on, thus making their poor credit even worse? Encouraging them to be responsible with credit? That would help. This won’t do anything to help them and in most respects will make things worse. 

What it will do is vastly improve the profit of the major banks and mortgage lenders who will make shitty loans and then dump them onto Freddie and Fannie, and ultimately the American tax payer. In return, these banks and businesses will shower contributions on the politicians who made this windfall possible. As I pointed out before in Everyone Else Should Pay For My Poor Decision Making!, the top leaders in both parties tend to have a lot of campaign cash coming from the financial services sector. If you think that banks and investment firms are giving Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell alike millions in campaign contributions without a firm understanding that no matter which party is in power, the banks are protected, then you are kidding yourself. 

You can see the end result of this from where we stand today. It doesn’t take a crystal ball, just a modicum of awareness. Lots and lots of crappy mortgages being issued to people who can’t handle them. Many or most of those will go into default and the tax-payers will be on the hook, which will be wrapped up into more make-believe money. Of course since “low-income” is often code for “not White”, there will be Congressional hearings and legislation to bail out these good folk who got in over their heads through no fault of their own. More money will flow to help keep them in their homes, magical bullshit money printed up out of thin air. 

With a finite supply of homes and skyrocketing lumber prices making new home construction very expensive, we will have a bunch of new buyers in the marketplace looking to purchase homes. This increases demand and that will in turn cause prices to rise even faster. Next will come pressure to intervene in the home construction business to encourage faster construction. We already saw that in the quote from the article: “…expanding investment that supports the construction of multifamily rental properties”. “Investment” in this case is a fancy way of saying “tax breaks and government subsidies to build apartments and housing”. Groups like the National Association Of Home Builders will certainly support making “investments” as well as making it easier for people to get mortgages. That is where the real power moves are happening. Biden eating ice cream or empty blustering from politicians on C-SPAN? That is meaningless. Where things are really getting done are behind the scenes with regulators, congressional committee staff and lobbyists jockeying for position at the Fed Gov trough, all trying to stick their snouts in the sweet, sweet magical money flow. 

Getting screwed in the deal? Us. Housing prices skyrocketing, inflation spiking. Housing is a huge part of the economy. Not everyone has an iPhone but just about everyone has to have a place to live. 

This is all part of the plan. To enact the Great Reset, things have to be a widespread dumpster fire. People living in a decent society aren’t going to live in the pod. What better way to throw a society into chaos than to mess with the housing market that impacts everyone? Not to mention inflation being another tool for the Powers That Be to accelerate the Great Reset, there will be more on that later. 

While sane people look at this move, which not only seeks to replicate the disaster of the Great Recession but to double down, and wonder what the hell they are thinking, it is critical to understand that torpedoing the economy is not an unforeseen effect, it is the whole point.

Annnnd bingo. In fact, that’s true of so many things happening to and around us these days it’s hard to keep track of them all. But if you still think these nefarious shitweasels aren’t working a Plan here, you need to think again.

A tale of two elites

One of these things is not like the other.

Without a doubt, the founding generation’s leading figures were from the colonies’ elite. Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, Adams, and their fellow preeminent revolutionaries were wealthy and celebrated in their time. These were not hardscrabble peasants yearning to commit regicide and confiscate wealth.

As the Declaration makes clear, they already had their fortunes and honors. They could have ridden out the troubles with the English crown in comfort, occasionally petitioning the king for parliamentary representation or the repeal of offending acts. Thus, their stand for independence and liberty was as incongruous as it is inspiring.

The founding elite rebelled to expand the freedom of their fellow human beings. Patently, the expansion the founding generation sought wasn’t completed in their time. And while many of them tried mightily, they ultimately failed to abolish slavery and grant, without qualification, the franchise to all men and women. But to denounce the seminal victory for human freedom by comparing it to the current blessings it has borne is, at best, preposterous. It is injurious, at worst, because it masks the venality, mendacity, and cynicism of America’s current elite.

In an era resounding with cries against elitists, the current ruling class knows they are in the populist crosshairs—and this targeting is coming from elements within both major parties. The situation is still manageable for them, but only if Left (Sanders supporters) and Right (MAGA) do not combine to curb the elitists in both the private and public sectors.

So how best to divide the opposition? Become strange bedfellows with the only party willing and able to go all the way to crony socialism: the Democrats and their DIE (diversity, inclusion, equity—M) cult.

As noted previously, the Democratic Party’s powerbrokers aren’t democratic. Despite their professed concern for the downtrodden, today’s Democratic Party leaders hold that such “concern” can only be exercised by a top-down administrative monolith governed by a ruling elite who arbitrarily and capriciously dole out patronage and privileges and redistribute wealth to expand and perpetuate their power. The current elite—the vast majority of whom already identify with them and participate in the scheme—could find no better partner than the Democrats’ powerbrokers onto which to graft themselves in the pursuit of transforming our republic into “our oligarchy.”

It is just common sense, however cruel: the current elite must prevent Left- and Right- populists from combining and devising and implementing the means to bring elites to heel; and, consequently, safeguard liberty, equality, and prosperity in our republic.

They needn’t worry themselves overmuch about that. There is no common ground, no shared values, on which the two might unify. There is but one way the conflict can be resolved and the misnomered elite “brought to heel.” It assuredly does NOT involve voting, political compromise, or gentlemanly debate.

In defiance of both parties’ populist movements, one witnesses the incestuous marriage of America’s current elite and the Democratic Party’s power brokers in the temple of the DIE cult. You weren’t invited. But they expect you to visit the registry and send a gift—or else.

Talk about disparate visions. The founding elite risked their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor to rebel against a tyrannical government to expand human liberty. The current elite has protected its wealth, power, and privilege by abetting a tyrannical government to curtail human liberty.

Of course, some may say that the current elite passing themselves off as the protectors of democracy at the very time they covet an oligarchy to curtail American liberty and protect their own wealth, power, and privilege does, indeed, take “balls.” I am not so sure. For even if the current elite fails in their oligarchic aim, they will still retain their lives and much of their fortunes.

Perhaps. But only if they’re allowed to. That one is still very much up in the air and, whether our third-rate “elite” scoundrels realize it or not, the choice won’t necessarily be theirs to make.

Step on it!

Peters mourns the passing of the late, lamented passing gear.

The average new family car has more power and potential performance capability than the average performance car of the ’90s. A 1995 Mustang GT’s 5.0 liter V8 made 215 horsepower; the car could do zero to 60 in about 7 seconds. A 2021 Camry with the standard 2.5 liter four cylinder engine has 203 horsepower and gets to 60 in just over 7 seconds. With its optional 301 horsepower 3.5 liter V6, the Camry can make that run 5.6 seconds, easily blowing the doors off the ’90s V8 GT. Which was one of the top three fastest American cars available back in the mid-’90s.

But back in the ’90s, people who drove Mustang GTs used the performance they were capable of. In the today, people who drive family cars like the Camry with more performance capability seem afraid to use it. The new Camry looks really angry, though – much more so than the ’90s Mustang. Probably because it is so frustrated by its driver.

Anyone who still drives will affirm this observation.

One can be driving a vehicle with very little performance capability; for example, my Old Steady pick-up, a nearly twenty-year-old truck with a four cylinder engine that does not get to 60 in either 5.6 or 7.9 seconds, regardless of my best efforts. In fact,my ’02 Nissan Frontier has about the same performance potential as a new Prius. But I use every bit of potential it does have and that makes me faster than most new car “drivers” who are behind the wheel (sort of) of vehicles with twice the performance potential.

It’s like a guy in a wheelchair winning the Boston Marathon.

A natural consequence of the Risk-Averse Society they’ve foisted off on an effeminized, no-ball nation. Eric is way off with the next part, though.

When these gimps-behind-the-wheel “pass” another car – if they even make the attempt to pass another car – it is done with excruciating lethargy,  kind of slow-motion Safety Dance on four wheels.

First, the wait. These non-driving people have to think about it a bit before they initiate any action.

Then they signal. Always the signal. This having been bored into their minds as the Most Important Thing to do when passing, rather than competently executing the actual maneuver.

Waitaminnitwaitaminnitwaitaminnit. They DO? You mean to say you’ve seen drivers actually bothering to activate a turn signal, not just before passing somebody, but EVER? At ALL?!? Things must be quite different up Roanoke way than they are ’round these parts, because I can assure you that signaling a turn, lane change, or pass is something that just doesn’t happen here, unless I’m the one doing it. In fact, I’ve been wondering if they’d made moving the turn-stick illegal in NC or something.

Then again, just about the only people you see slingshotting around Ma and Pa Kettle on a two-lane road these days are teenagers in Charger Hellcats or 5.0 Mustangs, so there’s that. Most everyone else limits the indulgence of their more adventurous sides to constant tailgating, posting selfies on Facebook the whole time.

Busted

Q: How do you know a Leftist has slipped up and committed a Kinsleyian gaffe—or, put another way, said the quiet part out loud, or accidentally told the truth?

A: he starts tripping over his own dick trying to backpedal, in predictable steps that go from claiming it was all “just a joke,” progressing from there to indignantly spluttering about his remarks being “taken out of context,” then insisting that he’s the real victim because of the “threats” he’s getting from the opposition. Thankfully, brave truth-teller that he is, he moves to the penultimate phase with the declaration that he “will never back down” and intends to soldier on in the noble cause of “Progress,” to eventually wind down with the Left’s reliable old conversation-stopper: RACIST!!

And, well…here we all are.

The same songwriting team that wrote an appalling song for the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus mocking parents’ fears that they’re “coming for your children,” were forced to cancel production of a play last year about the “dancing boys” of Afghanistan after it sparked a massive outcry from Afghans who perceived it as romanticizing sexual abuse.

Lyricist Charlie Sohne and composer Tim Rosser provoked a public outcry this week with their LGBTQ anthem, “A Message From the Gay Community,” which tells parents that they will “quietly and subtlely” convert their children, and “you will barely notice it.”

Their song, which Sohne and Rosser claim is “obviously tongue and cheek,” goes on to mock the horror of parents when they discover that their children are “finding things online.”

“Oh, and you’ll be disgusted (so gross), When they start finding things online That you’ve kept far from their sight (like information…) Guess what? You’ll still be alright!” [See below for full lyrics].

Fear not, America: the KiddleDiddle Choir vows that, like their civil-rights counterparts back in the 60s, We Shall Overcome this vicious onslaught of censorship, homophobia, hatred, and intolerance.

On Thursday, TGP reported on a video where the San Francisco Gay Man’s Choir promised to convert your children quietly and subtly. Their ‘joke’ fell completely flat because it was an eerie reminder of the constant push by media and education to sexualize and pro-trans the kids.

The video had received 88 likes and over 5,000 dislikes before it was made private, according to The Post Millennial.

After massive blowback, the group is now “working around the clock” to take “control of the narrative.” They issued a statement on Thursday night, putting blame on far-right conservative media for taking it up as their “new cause.”

They also cried victim, claiming that the lyrics were taken out of context to support the “intolerant and hateful needs” of conservatives.

They seemed to double down on their “joke” that they are coming for your children by saying that It’s their “turn” to do the indoctrinating.

“After decades of children being indoctrinated and taught intolerance for anyone who is ‘other,’ from using the Bible as a weapon to reparative therapy, it’s our turn.”

Could be, could be. But it’s soon gonna be OUR turn, motherfuckers. This sick shit might fly in SF, but it won’t out here in the heartland. And if you think Real Americans are going to stand still for it after you’ve unintentionally exposed your true agenda of recruiting our children the way you have, I strongly advise you to think again.

STRONGLY.

SO, how’s that globalism working out for ya, anyway?

Not too good.

So, have you heard about the massive international shipping crisis coming out of China, and the accompanying shortage of overseas shipping containers?

Actually, I have, lots of times—seeing as how my brother hauls containers out of Charleston and Savannah for a living, and calls me about five-six times a day, five and sometimes six days a week, to yell about one dipshit “good enough for gummint work” problem or another he’s currently dealing with while he’s sitting in endless lines at the port waiting to get either a container or the chassis the container sits on to pull back to NC. He’s been particularly perplexed over the sudden scarcity of both containers and chassis lately, and we’ve spent a good bit of time on the phone trying to suss out what the reasons for that might be.

Turns out, it’s a pretty complex problem.

Freight shipping is in the midst of a unique and unusual predicament. An unforeseen cascade of events caused by the pandemic has us facing a worldwide container shortage crisis. It’s a crisis because the lack of containers has a ripple effect down entire supply chains, disrupting trade on a global scale.

As the pandemic spread out from its Asian epicentre, countries implemented lockdowns, halting economic movements and production. Many factories closed temporarily, causing large numbers of containers to be stopped at ports. To stabilize costs and the erosion of ocean rates, carriers reduced the number of vessels out at sea. Not only did this put the brakes on import and export, it also meant empty containers were not picked up. This was especially significant for Asian traders, who couldn’t retrieve empty containers from North America.

Then, a unique scenario developed. Asia, being the first hit by the pandemic, was also the first to recover. So while China resumed exports earlier than the rest of the world, other nations were (and still are) dealing with restrictions, a reduced workforce and minimal production.

A consequence of this is that almost all of the remaining containers in Asia headed out to Europe and North America, but those containers did not come back quickly enough. Massive workforce disruptions due to coronavirus restrictions in North America affected not only ports, but cargo depots all across the country as well as inland transport lines. Without adequate staffing, containers started to pile up. As borders tightened, customs became more complicated to clear as well, worsening congestion. In addition, there were rapid shifts in tradelane demands that were challenging for carriers to adapt to. 

Now, that seems a little odd, since it doesn’t explain why containers and chassis would be so difficult to find on the US East Coast at all. In fact, the central premise of the article seems to completely contradict the issue my brother has been dealing with every day, for a cpl-three months now. But attentive readers can pick up at least one solid hint from the piece, involving what happens when instant despots—Just add Covid!!™—start behaving as if economies as sprawling as ours can be stopped and started as easily as flicking a light switch on and off, with no unanticipated ill effects.

Maybe Buck’s next link can clear things up a little further.

Never before has the humble ocean shipping container been this important to American business. If you can’t get one, you can’t move your international cargo — and supply has never been tighter. The cost of global trade is now contingent on how many containers exist, where they are and where they aren’t.

How many containers exist is controlled by China. Virtually every ocean shipping container in the world is built there.

Just three Chinese companies account for the majority of production, with Chinese factories now building more than 96% of the world’s dry cargo containers and 100% of the world’s refrigerated containers, according to U.K. consultancy Drewry.

Ahh, the Dinks, then. Quelle surprise.

Buck has plenty more along these lines, but the above ought to provide sufficient confirmation that allowing FederalGovCo to incentivize nominally American corporations to stab their employees in the backs with their own weaponized tax dollars via relocating virtually all US manufacturing to Red China might not have been such a hot idea after all. His closer:

I’ve got a simple idea that can mitigate a whole lot of these problems. Products that are to be sold in the USA can also be manufactured in the USA. Once manufactured, they won’t be impacted by exotic new virus outbreaks in China, or by a lack of Chinese containers, or by backups in Chinese ports, or even by the ick factor of China’s slave labor.

Even if manufacturing is simply moved from China to other countries, it is way past time to disengage from China.

Do I even need to remind anyone that Trump had made a pretty good start on that during his term, having already secured agreements with major US firms to either keep domestic plants running that they had been planning to shut down, or to build new facilities here? Of course, we all know how that ended up.

No Sooner Is Trump Out Of Office, Ford Is Switching US$900 Mln Investment From Ohio To Mexico
The Ford Motor Company has backed out of a pledge to invest US$900 million in an assembly plant near Cleveland, Ohio and will instead switch production to Mexico.

In 2019 – when Donald Trump was president – Ford had promised to invest in the factory in Avon Lake, which employs 1,700 workers producing the Ford E-series van and Super Duty pickup truck.

As a lifelong Ford fanatic, you can easily imagine how I felt about that. Bastards.

Get off my lawn porch!

How to legally, non-violently respond to Biden’s “vaccine” Armtwister Psych Squads when they come a-knocking.

If a government agent or assignee comes to your property, it will be important to those who wish to protect their privacy and property to KNOW THEIR RIGHTS.

  • You do not have to answer ANY QUESTIONS or make ANY STATEMENTS to ANY GOVERNMENT AGENT or assignee. (5th Amendment of the US Constitution and corresponding section of your State Constitution)
  • Simply asking an agent to identify themselves does not waive your Rights.
  • You have the Right to be free from any government agent or assignee entering your property, your home, or your business without a properly obtained warrant. (4th and 5th Amendments of the US Constitution and corresponding sections of your State Constitution.)
  • Simply demanding a copy of that warrant does not waive your Rights.
  • You have the Right to tell any government agent or assignee to leave your property if they cannot produce a properly obtained warrant. (4th and 5th Amendments of the US Constitution and corresponding sections of your State Constitution.)
  • Simply demanding an agent or assignee of the government to leave your property does not waive your Rights.
  • If a government agent or assignee refuses to leave your property or returns to your property after being warned against entering or returning, that agent or assignee has committed the crime of Trespass and is subject to arrest. (State Law, 4th & 5th Amendments to the US Constitution and corresponding sections of State Constitution as confirmed by Supreme Court Opinions).
  • You have the Right to record through audio, video, or photographic recording of any government agent or assignee on your property, either with or without consent of that agent or assignee. (Multiple Federal Court Opinions recognize that the First Amendment plainly protects the filming of officers and public agents.)

I like the next-to-last one best, myself. KrisAnne also helpfully provides a link to a printable “trespass warning form” that you can hand out to any and all government goons intruding on your personal space like candy on Halloween, which you should. As she says: HAND THE COMPLETED FORM DIRECTLY TO THE AGENT OR ASSIGNEE WHILE TELLING THEM THEY MUST NOW LEAVE THE PROPERTY AND YOU WILL NOT BE ANSWERING ANY QUESTIONS. Which you shouldn’t. Tell ’em to peddle their little shot someplace else, thanks, ain’t no market for it around here.

Although I greatly prefer Wes’s idea myself.

Update! This. This right here.


And that’s what we call balling the fucking jack, folks.

Pressure campaign

With all big-stick wielding tyrannies, there’s an observable progression: first, it’s scolding. Then, pressure. Then, intimidation. Then, threats. Then, commands. Finally, we get around to punishment.

Biden Regime to Go ‘Door-to-Door’ in Effort to Convince Unvaccinated Americans to Get the Jab
The Biden administration announced Tuesday that in the coming weeks federal workers will be sent to the homes of unvaccinated Americans as part of its effort to get more people vaccinated.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said the administration will be seeking out unvaccinated people to educate them on the vaccine’s safety and accessibility.

During the daily White House briefing, Psaki said that they will be targeting communities for “door-to-door outreach to get remaining Americans vaccinated by ensuring they have the information they need on how both safe and assessible the vaccine is.”

I assure you I already do, thanks. That’s your whole problem.

The regime is stepping up efforts to get Americans vaccinated after falling short Biden’s July 4th goal of getting 70 percent of adults to have received at least one vaccination shot.

Only 47 percent of Americans are reportedly fully vaccinated despite an abundance of the vaccine.

“We believe that we need to continue to press to get more people in the country vaccinated,” Ms. Psaki said. “These programs will continue.”

Oh, I don’t think there’s any doubt about that.

She told reporters that there is no federal mandate planned, though some universities and employers are issuing vaccination requirements.

“We leave it up to them to make that decision,” Psaki said.

Gee, how very big of you. I gotta tell ya, though, I only hope one of your Armtwister Psych Squads DOES knock on my damned door. The very least they can expect from me is a red-hot earful they ain’t gonna enjoy a single syllable of.

Degenerates

You will be made to not only tolerate, but endorse. And, yes, celebrate.

The Washington Post published an op-ed by a former prostitute who identifies as “gendervague,” in which the author encourages parents to show their children “kink culture” in the “queer community.”

Lauren Rowello argued in the Post that children are benefited by being exposed to LGBT sexual activity at public parades. Rowello uses her own kids as a backdrop for the story, highlighting how she took them and her transgender partner to a gay pride parade several years ago.

“Just as we got settled, our elementary-schooler pointed in the direction of oncoming floats, raising an eyebrow at a bare-chested man in dark sunglasses whose black suspenders clipped into a leather thong,” she writes. ” …[P]olicing how others show up doesn’t protect or uplift young people. Instead, homogenizing self-expression at Pride will do more harm to our children than good. When my own children caught glimpses of kink culture, they got to see that the queer community encompasses so many more nontraditional ways of being, living, and loving.”

There is no “queer community” in America. Gay people have different views, neighborhoods, and values, just like other Americans. Some LGBT individuals use the month of June as an excuse to engage in inappropriate acts and stroll around in public nude. Many gay people do not engage in this exhibitionist behavior.

In the pages of the Washington Post, then, Rowello celebrates exposing children to extreme sexual behavior and romanticizes this disturbing decision, claiming kids will actually reap benefits. Rowello goes so far as to criticize those who object to child sexual abuse, claiming children can consent to things they do not understand:

Anti-kink advocates tend to manipulate language about safety and privacy by asserting that attendees are nonconsensually exposed to overt displays of sexuality. The most outrageous claim is that innocent bystanders are forced to participate in kink simply by sharing space with the kink community, as if the presence of kink at Pride is a perverse exhibition that kinksters pursue for their own gratification.

Uh huh. Let me see if I got this all, uhh, straight, then. According to you warped Leftists: A) having “kink” waved in our, and our kids’, faces during a public parade does NOT amount to being “forced to participate,” but B) Silence Is Violence!™

Okay, got it.

But kinksters at Pride are not engaged in sex acts — and we cannot confuse their self-expression with obscenity.

Oh, aren’t they? Because I could tell you stories about activities I personally witnessed at the NYC Pride parade—I was walking through the Village one fine afternoon and found myself caught unawares as the parade passed flamboyantly by me—that would thoroughly discredit that assertion. Trust me on this.

Thus, so it goes, there is nothing wrong with kids being potentially groomed or indoctrinated with pride propaganda through prepubescent sexual exposure to even pornographic public acts. Rowello writes that taking kids to witness “kink” at a gay pride parade “opens space for families to have necessary and powerful conversations with young people about health, safety, consent, and — most uniquely — pleasure.”

The argument being made by Rowello aligns with the left’s interpretation of the sexual revolution. It’s exactly why an elite New York private school hosted a pornography training, and why Ohio State University hosted an OnlyFans seminar in March. It’s why Netflix backed the film “Cuties,” and why a Texas school district taught anal sex in “health” classes.

“Kink embodies the freedom that Pride stands for, reminding attendees to unapologetically take up space as an act of resistance and celebration — refusing to bend to social pressure that asks us to be presentable. That’s a value I want my children to learn,” Rowello declares.

I’d like to interject with a few questions, if I may.

  • Why can’t you people just leave the rest of us alone?
  • Why can’t you people just keep your sexual proclivities and/or practices to yourselves, rather than insisting that the rest of us be witness to them?
  • Why is it “unfair,” “unjust,” and “bigoted” that the laws barring public displays of nudity, sexual acts, and lewd behavior apply to gays attending or participating in a parade or other public event, when the fact is that if I walked around waving my goob at all and sundry, spanked my wife/gf’s bare ass with a riding crop, or got caught cuffing my carrot, screwing the ol’ lady, or just meandering around in the raw during the town Christmas parade, I would most certainly be cuffed and hauled off to Riker’s to await trial in a New York minute?
  • Are you really so demented, so profoundly narcissistic, so just plain fucked in the head, that you do sincerely believe that forcing young children to be confronted with open displays of sexual deviance—actually, to any kind of adult sexual behavior at all—is perfectly moral and somehow “good for them” psychologically and emotionally?
  • I really don’t give a damn what ANYBODY does in private, or where you choose to put your dick, excepting children and small animals. I consider that sort of thing to be none of my business, and have no desire to intrude or interfere. Not my circus, not my monkey. So why can’t you be content with that? Do civility, forebearance, and decorum matter at all to you? Why am I expected to stand up and cheer for your every personal sexual inclination?
  • If I derived sexual gratification from coming to your house wearing nothing but a strappy leather bondage harness, squatting to take a fragant dump on your lawn, then closing the show by masturbating to completion on the front porch, would you be good with it? Would you extend me the same courtesy you demand of everybody else via a stamping, whistling, standing ovation? If not, why not? SURELY you wouldn’t think my behavior offensive or unnerving, would you?
  • Where does all this end? When is enough enough?

You just take all the time you need with those answers, pal.

Putting the helots in their place

This benighted country is nothing more than a sick, unfunny joke.

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem took aim at the Biden administration from Mount Rushmore Sunday after federal officials this year rejected her bid to host a Fourth of July fireworks show at the famed monument.

Fireworks were reintroduced at Mount Rushmore for the first time since 2009 last year under Donald Trump, but the National Park Service (NPS) denied Noem’s permit request earlier this year. The NPS cited health reasons relating to coronavirus, wildfire risks, environmental concerns, and ongoing construction at the federal landmark — which is not set to be concluded by the Fourth of July.

Noem, a Republican, filed a lawsuit challenging the NPS decision.

“After telling us they’d ‘circle back,’ the Biden Administration has not responded to our request to uphold the Memorandum Agreement between the State of South Dakota and the National Parks Service to host a safe and responsible national celebration and fireworks show,” Noem wrote.

A federal judge rejected the challenge, ruling officials were justified in their decision.

But weeks after her bid was rejected to host the Independence Day fireworks display at Mount Rushmore, the Biden administration unveiled plans this month to host a similar display at the White House.

“What a hypocrite. President @JoeBiden wants “a summer of freedom” where we “mark independence from the virus by celebrating with events across the country,” Noem tweeted on June 15. “Translation: fireworks are fine at the White House, but not at Mount Rushmore.”

Mark “independence” from TheVirusTheVirusTheVirus!!™ by…banning the Mt Rushmore fireworks display because of TheVirusTheVirusTheVirus!!™, huh? Frankly, that’s about as perfect an in-your-face and upfront confirmation of where we now stand as I can think of. All the ingredients are there:

  • The irrational, supine cowardice of the Branch Covidians being played on by FederalGovCo out of pure pettiness and spite
  • The arrogant muscle-flexing of our patently illegitimate Occupation Government
  • The trotting out of the clapped-out Covid Con yet again as a display of authority FederalGovCo doesn’t lawfully possess but wields nonetheless
  • The smug, nearly boastful show of for-me-but-not-for-thee hypocrisy so typical of these vermin

Yep, this story really has it all.

What Noem ought to do is hoist a big, far middle finger in the general direction of Mordor On The Potomac and all its orcs by announcing she’s going to throw the biggest July Fourth party she can put together anydamnedway, then hold a press conference in which she explicitly dares DC’s dimestore dictators to do something about it. In addition to being riotously funny, a challenge like that from the Gov would be a most excellent way to declare the primacy of the heretofore-abandoned Founding principle of States’ Rights as well. But I won’t be holding my breath waiting for any such thing, and neither should you.

It just goes to reinforce my own long-held conviction that there is absolutely nothing to be celebrated on the Fourth of July, other than maybe to pay our respects to the achievements of much better men than ourselves. It ought to be considered a national day of mourning, until Real Americans have reclaimed their birthright, retaken their freedom, and re-established a national government that at least somewhat resembles the one they were bequeathed. Until such time, Independence Day only amounts to just another day off work, an excuse to throw some burgers on the grill and quaff lots of beer, nothing more.

Losing faith

I hate to say this, I swear I do, but sometimes I really wish that Trump would just shut the hell up already.

Trump issues statement on Gen. Milley; calls him liar, trying to ‘impress radical left,’ calls for resignation
Milley later issued an embarrassing and groveling apology for walking at my side to St. John’s Church, which far-left rioters almost burned to the ground the day before. Instead of denouncing the rioters, he denounced himself—a humiliation for our Military. A year later even the Fake News had to admit that their Lafayette Square narrative was a giant lie. Milley, once again, looked like a fool.

Now, in yet another desperate ploy to impress the Radical Left and keep his job, Milley made-up a false story that he yelled at me in the Situation Room. This is totally Fake News. If he had displayed such disrespect for his Commander-in-Chief I would have fired him immediately.

To further ingratiate himself with Biden, progressive Media, and the Radical Left, Milley went to Congress and actually defended Critical Race Theory being shoved down the throats of our soldiers. This Marxist, racist anti-American propaganda has no place in our Military—I banned these training programs, now Biden and the Pentagon have resumed them. As soon as possible, Congress must defund this racist indoctrination.

Gen. Milley ought to resign, and be replaced with someone who is actually willing to defend our Military from the Leftist Radicals who hate our Country and our Flag.

Understand: there’s no love lost for Milley around these parts—NONE. Not for him, nor for any other of the Politicized Perfumed Princes of the Puzzle Palace. I deeply respect America’s true and faithful warriors, however many of them are left after the recent purges, and hold them in the highest esteem. The wretched, backstabbing Blue Falcons of the higher command echelons—Milley, Austin, and the rest? Eh, not so much.

All that said, there’s a leeeeetle problem with Trump’s richly-deserved condemnation of the Wokester rumpswab Milley. At this point, it should be simplicity itself to guess what it is.

Trump Appoints Gen. Mark Milley Chairman Of The Joint Chiefs Of Staff
President Trump made the announcement via Twitter on Saturday.

“I am pleased to announce my nomination of four-star Gen. Mark Milley, Chief of Staff of the United States Army — as the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, replacing General Joe Dunford, who will be retiring,” Trump wrote. “I am thankful to both of these incredible men for their service to our Country! Date of transition to be determined.”

Trump will attend the Army-Navy football game on Saturday afternoon. On Friday, Trump said he is nominating William Barr for attorney general, and Heather Nauert for U.N. ambassador.

“Ought to resign,” eh? Please tell me, if you can: WHY THE FUCKING FUCK did you appoint the lousy bastard in the first gott-damned place? Or, since you DID appoint his worthless ass, why did he not get the old heave-ho at the first intimation of his clearly duplicitous nature, something that became apparent pretty early on? What the hell ever happened to all that “I’ll hire only the best people” bushwa, anyway?

I know, I know. Trump was naive; he was too trusting; he was in over his head; he had no idea how bad things really were in the Swamp; he was beset on every side, had no support, all that. So stipulated.

BUT.

He was also President of the United States of America. That is NOT a purely symbolic office. While he was certainly hampered and hindered by all the Deep State anklebiting, he was by NO means without recourse, power, ability, or options, not at any point. No President is. Previous ones cleaned Executive Branch house upon first taking office as a matter of course, putting their own people in place throughout. Hell, his odious predecessor did that very thing. Trump swore all along that that’s what he would be doing.

But somehow, incomprehensibly and to not only his own but the nation’s detriment, he didn’t. Worse, even after repeated betrayals he allowed the selfsame scoundrels who had put their knives in his back to keep their cushy sinecures. Which only enabled them to do it again, and again, and again. The only one I can recall him firing right offhand was Comey, and that was well after the damage had been done.

No, don’t tell me why Trump couldn’t have fired these snakes-in-the-grass; he damned sure could have, and he damned sure should have. I don’t care to hear any more about why he couldn’t; what I’m interested in now is why he didn’t. Sure, the media and Demonrats would have screamed blue murder over it. So fucking what? They were going to anyway, and did, and still are.

Whatever the reason, if any, Trump passively let his enemies have their way with him, never lifting a finger to do what so obviously needed to be done: get rid of them. This out-of-character passivity not only cost him the Presidency, it may yet land him behind bars. Complaining about them now, saying they “ought to resign,” when he could have and should have taken action when he had the chance, is starting to sound too much like sniveling for my comfort.

Remember, this is the guy who for years hosted a highly successful and quite popular TeeWee show called The Apprentice, whose first-order raison d’etre was that on each episode…TRUMP WOULD FIRE SOMEBODY’S ASS. So we know that handing out the ol’ pink slips was not something he was ever reluctant to do.

Until he became President.

I still don’t think Trump is stupid. Nor is he weak, timid, indecisive, or incompetent. So I can come up with no reasonable explanation for the failure to exercise his clear prerogative as head of the Executive Branch to remove disloyal underlings who were openly defying and undermining him—many of whom were hired or appointed by him in the first damned place—and installing more trustworthy replacements willing to respect him personally and cooperate with him professionally. It’s beyond baffling.

What the hell is going on here, exactly?

DOOOOOMED!!!

Everybody got their last will and testaments current and their life insurance paid up?

Top experts have likened the COVID-19 “Delta Variant” to the common cold and hay fever. This comes as people like Anthony Fauci, Boris Johnson, and the WHO are pushing for more social distancing, lockdowns, mask mandates, and vaccinations.

Experts in the United Kingdom have compared the symptoms of the COVID-19 “Delta Variant” to that of hay fever and the common cold, according to various reports. The new strain has reportedly been the cause of 99% of all new COVID-19 cases in the UK. “The main symptoms of COVID-19 appear to have changed — with headaches and sore throats now more common than fevers and coughs, according to a warning by UK experts,” noted the New York Post.

Dr. Fauci continues to assert that “the Delta variant is currently the greatest threat in the US to our attempt to eliminate COVID-19,” which reportedly has accounted for 20% of all new COVID-19 cases in the United States. Fauci maintains that COVID-19 vaccines can protect people from the “Delta Variant,” adding that young, unvaccinated people are “more vulnerable than ever.”

However, many Americans are skeptical about the COVID-19 vaccinations they’ve received amid reports of the “Delta Variant” infecting individuals after they’ve been fully vaccinated. As was reported by the Wall Street Journal, “About half of adults infected in an outbreak of the Delta variant of Covid-19 in Israel were fully inoculated with the Pfizer Inc. vaccine, prompting the government to reimpose an indoor mask requirement and other measures to contain the highly transmissible strain.”

On May 13, Joe Biden told America to “get vaccinated or wear a mask until you do,” prompting hundreds of millions of Americans to eventually receive their COVID-19 vaccines.

I will not comply, and you and your grubby little bureau-stooges can all go fuck yourselves. Preferably, with something razor sharp, rusty, and very, very girthy.

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