GIVE TIL IT HURTS!

Lying, or just delusional?

With Pedo Joe, it’s damned near impossible to know for sure.

Joe Biden believes he is honest, and that anyone who disagrees with him is lying, or is ignorant, or has been deceived by liars.

So deeply convinced is Joe Biden of his own honesty that he thinks his very name is synonymous with truth-telling:

“I give you my word as a Biden: I will never stoop to President Trump’s level.”

— Nov. 20, 2019

“I give you my word as a Biden: If I am elected president I will do everything in my power to protect our children from gun violence.”

— March 10, 2020

“I give you my word as a Biden: When I’m president, I will lead with science, listen to the experts and heed their advice, and always tell you the truth.”

— March 18, 2020

When I first noticed him using this “my word as a Biden” phrase during the 2020 campaign, I was puzzled. Has the Biden family been so prominently associated with honesty that when Joe says this, most Americans say, “Well, that settles it”? Of course not. In fact, Biden’s first presidential campaign, in 1988, collapsed in disgrace specifically because of Joe’s dishonesty, when he was caught plagiarizing others — most notably British Labour leader Neil Kinnock — in his speeches.

Joe Biden lies about a lot of things, including his own biography. It is fair to say he is notoriously dishonest, and yet he seems to believe that nobody knows this, and that he enjoys a reputation as a truth-teller.

“My word as a Biden”? It is to laugh. And laugh, and laugh, and laugh, and laugh.

The last American hero

Verily, a man among men.

Over the moon! Buzz Aldrin marries on his 93rd birthday: Astronaut legend ties the knot for a fourth time as he shares sweet photos with new bride Anca Faur, 63

The second man on the moon has married for a fourth time, with astronaut legend Buzz Aldrin announcing he’d wed his longtime girlfriend on his birthday.

Mr Aldrin, who turned 93 on Friday and was part of the historic first-ever moon landing mission, made the sweet announcement to his new bride, who is 30 years his junior, on his Twitter account. 

‘On my 93rd birthday & the day I will also be honored by Living Legends of Aviation I am pleased to announce that my longtime love Dr. Anca Faur & I have tied the knot. We were joined in holy matrimony in a small private ceremony in Los Angeles & are as excited as eloping teenagers.’

Dr Faur, 63, currently works as the Executive Vice President of Buzz Aldrin Ventures LLC, with her LinkedIn page listing her as having worked for the company since 2019.

What a badass. There are photos, and Buzz still looks great. No word at post time on whether he gave any pesky, moonshot-denier punk-ass bitches in the vicinity that patented Aldrin right cross straight in the fucking mush. But no matter; we’ll always have the memories.

Schweeeet. WeirdDave also hips us to this gem:

I’ve heard stories that Buzz and Neil Armstrong used to tell each other really unfunny jokes about being on the moon at parties, and when they were greeted with an awkward silence they’d say “Well, I guess you had to be there”.

Heh. Yep, like I said: badass. Happy birthday to you, Buzz. May you and your lovely bride enjoy many happy years together.

The road to war

Will be paved by KBR contractors.

Along with the comment: “WW3 is a go, KBR is hiring civilian workers for the war zone.”

Unfortunately, from my own personal experience, he’s probably correct. I went to the KBR website and check out the ‘local job hiring’ that’s going on for LOGCAP. LOGCAP stands for LOGistics Civilian Augmentation Program, i.e. using civvies to fill in the blanks that the Army no longer does, shit like cooks, base support (HVAC and AC stuff), Logistics coordination (my old job when I worked for them back in 06 for 6 months in Tallil.) I quit for two reasons…one, a Better job running Gitmo opened and two, I purely hated the company and the shitkickers who were in charge. Now…

A BIG part of what they did was assist in building and maintaining ALL the FOBs in Iraq and Affy.  Forward Operating Bases that is…unless they were waaaaay out in the hostile boonies that is. Wouldn’t want to get kil’t now Aye? But as far as the main bases like Victory and Mortaritaville? KBR baby, ALLLLLL KBR allllll day long.

Now, not for nothing, I checked to see if this was a legit thing. Went to KBR’s website and pulled the following by doing a search for Germany first (only two job openings there) and then Poland, ‘cos IF we’re going to be staging and running a full period fucking dot war in the Kraine, the staging area’s going to be like Kuwait was for Iraq in 2003.

Link HERE

Sure as fuck:

They started back, near as I can tell, setting this up in August by some of the job posting dates.

Breaking it down:
Construction Services: They’re the ones who build base infrastructure. 44 jobs.
Logistics and Gov Services: Warehouse/Supply guys…Cooks and shit, HVAC guys, support services. Truckers too….Those are the BIG ones, and to start with, they want 57.
The rest listed above are your basic ass’n trash jobs, with leadership and planners included.

Doesn’t sound like much, but considering a couple of months ago, the grand sum total of jobs for and by KBR was in the single digits? There’s something coming. Poland doesn’t need a whole hell of a lot of initial support as they -are- either a second world or maybe a first world country that as of yet hasn’t been blow’d dafuq up.

Stress on the word YET

So, Komplete Bumbling Retards is now ramping up.

This is a thing of badness.

I’d have to say so, yeah. As Big Country goes on to say, KBR wouldn’t be doing this in the first place if there wasn’t, and I quote, “literally a metric fuckton in weight of money to be made.” Given that pRetend “pResident” Joey Bags has so magnanimously sent his co-conspirators in the government of the Ukraine D卐M☭CRAT Party ATM™ what, over a hundred billion-with-a-“b” US smackeroos since the Rooskie invasion, they aren’t wrong in that no-brainer assessment, either.

Taking security seriously

Biden clearly did, at the palatial Delaware mansion—easily affordable on a Senator’s salary, obviously—where he left top-secret classified documents laying around in cardboard boxes.

No Visitor Logs exist where docs were discovered: report
The White House Counsel’s Office revealed in a statement today that no visitor logs exist for President Joe Biden’s Delaware home where classified documents were discovered. This information came out when a pack of Republicans wanted the visitor logs after classified documents were found in Biden’s garage, but the White House had to give GOP members the bad news – that no visitor logs exist for that home, according to Biden lawyers.

So? No big deal; the visitor signatures in ’em would have all been in Chinese, so nobody would have been able to read ’em anyhow.

My heart bleeds

Aww, that’s a shame, I hate it for ya.

NYC mayor Eric Adams says the city is at ‘breaking point’ as 400 asylum seekers arrive EACH DAY – and submits an emergency aid request to Gov. Kathy Hochul to help shelter hundreds of migrants
New York City Mayor Eric Adams said the city has reached its ‘breaking point’ as 400 asylum seekers arrive at the Big Apple every day.

Adams has submitted an emergency mutual aid request to the state and Gov. Kathy Hochul asking for immediate help over the weekend to house the incoming migrants.

‘We are at our breaking point,’ Adams said. ‘Based off our projections, we anticipate being unable to continue sheltering arriving asylum seekers on our own.

‘Our initial request is for shelter to accommodate 500 asylum seekers, but, as New York City continues to see numbers balloon, this estimate will increase as well.’

Yeh, yeh, yeh. Tell it to El Paso, or any other of a huge number of Texas border towns, whydon’tcha.

The plea for help comes a week after Colorado joined the list of states busing migrants to New York City to alleviate the burden for those near the southern border and to get the asylum seekers to their preferred destination.

Adam’s office noted that the city has received more than 3,100 asylum seekers in the previous week, averaging about 400 each day, with 835 arriving on Thursday alone.

‘All this is pushing New York City to the brink,’ Adams said. ‘Since last spring, the city has stepped up to welcome approximately 40,000 asylum seekers, providing them with shelter, food, and connections to a host of resources.

Which still amounts to a mere drop in the proverbial bucket of the tsunami of illegals the border states have been inundated by, for years now. This next bit of blue-on-blue, friendly-fire aggression, though, is something kinda new.

The mayor also appeared to take a swipe at the Biden administration and federal lawmakers over the lack of solutions at the border, which saw a spike in illegal immigration in recent months.

‘The absence of sorely needed federal immigration reform should not mean that this humanitarian crisis falls only on the shoulders of cities,’ Adams said.

Sez you, Mr “In this house, we believe that no human being is ‘illegal’.”

‘We need support and aid from our federal and state partners and look forward to working together to meet this crisis head-on.’

Always with the beggar’s-hand out with these smarmy asshats, innit. Quelle surprise, that.

Later in the piece, Mayor Whinezalot bleats and moans about how very, very “unfair” it is that Colorado is joining the ever-lengthening list of much-put-upon states who have decided to shift a mere tithe of their wetback burden to NYC, but “unfair’ is hardly the right word here. Forcing self-proclaimed “sanctuary” cities like NYC to put their money where their self-righteous yaps are at last and share in a problem they did a great deal to help create is the very definition of “fair.”

Lying liars gotta lie

That would, of course be the lyingest liar of them all, Pedo Joe Bribem.

🧵 THREAD: 21 MADE-UP STORIES BIDEN HAS TOLD ABOUT HIMSELF AS PRESIDENT.
1. Biden claimed — on multiple occasions — he “used to drive” an 18-wheeler.

Biden **rode** in an 18-wheeler once nearly 50 years ago. He’s never driven one.

2. Biden claimed multiples times he spoke to the “inventor” of insulin.

Multiple scientists are credited with discovering insulin; two died before Biden was born and there is no evidence Biden met the others.

3. Biden claimed he “had a house burn down with my wife in it” and said they “almost lost a couple firefighters.”

In 2005, Biden’s house had a “small” fire that was contained to the kitchen and “there were no injuries.”

4. Biden claimed he was “raised in the Puerto Rican community” of Delaware.

There is no evidence of this, of course.

In Delaware in 1970, only 2,154 people — 0.39% of the state population — were of Puerto Rican descent.

Oh sure, but what about in 1904, when Old Jaux was born?

5. Biden said he remembered “spending time” and “going to” the Tree of Life synagogue after the 2018 shooting.

The synagogue said Biden never visited.

6. Biden claimed he served as a “liaison” to Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir during the Six-Day War.

Biden was in law school during the war and Meir wasn’t even prime minister.

Plenty, plenty, PLENTY more where that came from, and even this, voluminous as it is, is by no means a comprehensive list. The Twitchy folks close out their article with the apposite question.

So is he lying? Or is he too damn old to remember what is and isn’t a lie?

Maybe we should just embrace the power of AND.

Hey, that’s MY line.

What a worthless piece of shit pRetend “pResident” Pedo Joe is. May every single minute of every single day he spends in the office he usurped and now besmirches burn him like scalding water. After pursuing it with single-minded, fanatical dedication for many decades, may his time there be a resoundingly miserable experience, yielding him not one whit of happiness or peace.

Heads. On. PIKES

They’re just blatantly rubbing our noses in it now.

Joe Biden Awards Infamous 2020 Election Workers With Presidential Citizens Medals

Ruby Freeman, the notorious election worker who was caught on surveillance video engaging in highly suspicious activity during the 2020 election in Atlanta, Georgia, was awarded the Presidential Citizens Medal at the White House on Friday.

During a White House ceremony recognizing the 2nd anniversary of the January 6 riot, Biden honored Freeman, her supervisor daughter Shaye Moss, and ten other individuals.

The White House portrayed Freeman as voting rights heroine who had suffered cruel right-wing harassment in the aftermath of the election.

“Inspired by the voting rights legacy of her beloved Atlanta, Lady Ruby Freeman viewed her civic duty as a Fulton County Election worker as a sacred mission so the people of Georgia could exercise their fundamental right to vote freely and fairly,” a White House staffer said during the award ceremony Friday.

Freeman and her daughter were seen on the surveillance video pulling boxes filled with ballots out from under a table at State Farm Arena after supervisors had told poll workers they had quit for the night.

After Freeman, Moss and another election worker retrieved the ballot boxes from underneath the table, the video shows Freeman and Moss scanning and rescanning stacks of ballots into an election computer.

The presidential race in Georgia in 2020 was decided by less than 11,900 votes. Election investigators estimated at the time that the late night ballot scans added between 20,000 to 40,000 to the overall vote totals.

It’s long, but be sure to read it all; it truly, truly beggars belief. So much so, it’s bound to leave you absolutely slackjawed, the final two ‘graphs especially.

Rock in a hard place

I can agree with most of this. But not all of it.

From Vinyl Roofs to Classic Vinyl
REVIEW: ‘The Lives of Brian’ by Brian Johnson
Brian Johnson joined AC/DC in 1980 after the death of the band’s original singer Bon Scott. Before we proceed to Johnson’s amiable rockography, The Lives of Brian, we should clarify the musical technicalities. AC/DC are not a heavy metal band. They are frequently hard rock, but essentially they are a rock ’n’ roll band. Like Motörhead, and like the early punk bands that shared their energy and glee, they are the last, late progeny of ’50s rock ’n’ roll. They are loud and bluesy, and have more in common with Johnny Kidd and the Pirates than with Metallica or Def Leppard. The boogie in their early albums carries echoes of the age before Elvis. Like Motörhead’s Philthy Phil Taylor or The Damned’s Rat Scabies, the drumming of AC/DC’s first drummer Phil “The Stud” Rudd swings with the ghost of Gene Krupa and Buddy Rich.

Second, AC/DC are Australian. Formed in 1973, they came up the old way, which is the hard way, on the Australian pub circuit. The “pub” part might evoke cozy and ramshackle British country inns, but Australian pubs, according to those who have visited them and survived, are cavernous beer halls full of raging drunks. These bracing conditions made AC/DC what the Irish call a “show band,” playing other people’s hits, and entertaining the punters like a very loud vaudeville act. Hence their guitarist Angus Young dressing as a schoolboy, complete with satchel.

Third, Bon Scott was and always will be AC/DC’s singer. This is the Raft of Theseus part. Scott had been with the band for six years before he choked on his own vomit after an especially exuberant night out in South London. Brian Johnson replaced him in 1980, and freely admits that he is a singing caretaker, preserving Scott’s songs and the band that made them. Johnson’s 42 years on the job begin where The Lives of Brian ends. This is the story of what Johnson did before he became famous, and what he did to become famous. It is, as Bon Scott wrote, “a long way to the top if you want to rock ’n’ roll,” but the scenic route is much more interesting than the rock star’s cycle of arena shows and private jets.

“Caretaker”? Like hell. No slight of any kind to the inimitable Bon Scott intended, of course, but AC/DC has done some of its very best work with Johnson up front and center. I’ve been fortunate indeed to see Oz’s gift to real rock and roll live four times over the years, including my first time shortly before Scott passed on, and I can say without fear of contradiction that Johnson stepped up and filled some unimaginably oversized shoes with aplomb, class, and style. He never tried to make anybody forget about Scott, or to supplant him; he made the wiser choice to go his own way and add to Scott’s legacy instead, which is greatly to his credit both as a singer and as a man.

Yes, Bon Scott was AC/DC’s singer—WAS. But now Brian Johnson is, and not just the band itself but all of its fans have benefitted greatly from that. And if you try to tell me that this doesn’t stand on its own, no reference to the late great Bon Scott needed, well, I’m gonna tell you you’re as full of shit as a Christmas turkey.


WHOA, that’s good squishy.

Banana republics gotta banana republic

What the J6 “insurrection” probably SHOULD have looked like. At least, in the early going.

Chaos in Brazil: Protesters Storm Capital, Destroying Supreme Court and Congress

Thousands of opponents of socialist convicted felon President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva stormed his offices and the headquarters of the Congress and Supreme Federal Tribunal (STF) of Brazil on Sunday, reportedly demolishing the facades of two of the three buildings and causing “irreparable” damage to priceless artifacts in the chambers.

The riot in Brasilia occurred while Lula himself was in Sao Paulo state assessing the damage of recent floods. Lula, in a public statement following police action to subdue the protesters, announced an official “federal intervention” in Brasilia – consolidating the public security powers of several agencies into the hands of a hand-picked, top-level official – and accused police of acting in “bad faith” in failing to prevent the protesters from storming the buildings.

The incident is an offshoot of months of protests following the October presidential election that saw Lula narrowly defeat then-incumbent President Jair Bolsonaro in two rounds of voting. Most protesters support Bolsonaro but, more broadly, oppose Lula’s victory as illegitimate on several grounds, including his multiple convictions on charges of corrupt acts occurring during his first two terms as president. An audit of the 2022 runoff presidential election, which featured only Bolsonaro and Lula as candidates, by the Armed Forces of Brazil concluded that no guarantee could be made of the absence of fraud or irregularities.

Protesters also accuse the STF, particularly its head justice Alexandre de Moraes, of intervening in the election by censoring mentions of Lula’s corruption case and silencing Bolsonaro supporters through fines and police raids.

Well, gee, that last bit doesn’t sound AT ALL like how we found ourselves stuck with dear old Pedo Joe as pRetend “pResident,” now does it?

Lula’s inauguration on January 1 occurred without major incident and Lula used his powers to immediately begin undoing Bolsonaro policies, most notably sharply limiting civilian access to firearms.

Proving yet again that gun-grabbing shitlibs are the same the world over.

Last month, Lula’s pick for justice minister, Flavio Dino, referred to anti-Lula protest groups as “incubators of terrorism.”

Nope, still not ringing any bells for me. Don’t know about you guys.

Many of the protesters convening in Brasilia on Sunday are part of a movement demanding that the nation’s military oust Lula. They insist that their demand is not for a coup d’etat, but for a “military intervention” they say the Brazilian constitution provides for in the event of an illegitimate election.

Some protesters shared videos on social media during the event on Sunday urging the military to “save us from communism.”

Sorry to be the wet blanket here, but I’m afraid that’s on y’all, same as it is here in the US. Vote your way in, shoot your way out, all that jazz.

All in all, I can only agree with JJ.

With that, fresh off the two-year anniversary of “the most devastating attack on our precious democracy (*vomits*) than the Civil War, Pearl Harbor and 9/11 combined,” the brave citizenry of Brazil have a few things to say about Socialist/Globalist rigged elections. And I’d be lying to you if I said what’s happening down South American way isn’t making my mouth water.

Ditto, brother. Mega-MAGA dittos, you might even say.

Update! Kunstler tots up some of the striking similarities between thither banana republic and yon one.

A great mob of many thousands went apeshit in Brazil over the weekend in that country’s weird, geographically isolated capital, Brasilia, a horror of 1960s-style Modernist city planning. They stormed the national congress and trashed the offices within to protest the fishy election of President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva over the former incumbent Jair Bolsonaro. As in our own country, the quarrel was over the mysterious behavior of voting machines and the unwillingness of election officials or courts to verify the results. The New York Times offered a thumbnail of Mr. Bolsonaro, who is sitting out the current action in Florida:

The resulting picture showed an elected leader, first as a congressman and then as president, who has built a narrative of fraudulent elections based on inaccuracies, out-of-context reports, circumstantial evidence, conspiracy theories and downright falsehoods — much like former President Donald J. Trump.”

Get it? There’s no way fraud could have happened, just like in our country. And Bolsonaro is another Trump. It explains everything. All complaints are “baseless,” “false,” and “conspiracy theories.” End-of-story…. Are these shopworn tropes maybe losing their mojo? And is The New York Times embarrassing itself, a little bit, to trot them out as if they are actually arguments against anything?

The truth is more that Mr. Lula is another Hugo Chavez, poised to wreck Brazil with a fresh attempt at nationalizing all enterprise, ramping up a Marxist police state, and inviting China to partner-up in the action, including new Chinese military bases in the western hemisphere — an interesting challenge to the Monroe Doctrine (if anyone remembers what it says). And so, Mr. Lula has arrested hundreds of protesters and declared a national emergency.

Don’t expect it to stop there. The protesters are asking the army to intervene, as Brazil’s constitution actually obligates them to do in election disputes. Also, unlike the USA, Brazil has plenty of prior experience with the army removing elected leaders. Sometimes, electing yourself into tyranny is not the best way to solve economic problems. For the moment, Mr. Lula borrows a page from the American Left’s playbook for destroying a society. It will matter a lot if he doesn’t get away with it. That’s why the US political Swamp, and its errand boys in the news media, look on the action in Brazil with alarm. Unlike the January 6 protest in Washington, the Brasilia mob represents a genuine insurrection aimed at overthrowing a communist seizure of power.

All well and good, until we go off the rails entirely, in the usual fashion.

Before long, the House is going to impeach Mr. Biden over this fiasco and quite a few other matters. He may not be convicted in the Senate, with its slim Democratic Party majority, but they will be compelled to hold a trial, at least, where a lot of dirty laundry will get aired, and pressure will mount for the old grifter to resign.

Hoooooo-KAY, then. Don’t let’s anybody be holding their etc waiting for THAT Skittles-pooting unicorn to turn up, that’s my advice.

Delusional is as delusional does

Good riddance to some extremely bad rubbish.

Just when one thinks one has heard everything…one is proven wrong.

Outgoing speaker of the Blouse Louse (what, no Souse?—M) House Nancy Pelosi recently wrote her last “Dear Colleague” letter to her Democrat co-conspirators/comrades. In this missive, she stated, “During the 117th Congress, President Biden and Congressional Democrats have put forth a shining vision of justice for all. Together, we have worked tirelessly to infuse this value into our legislative efforts. We can all take immense pride in our achievements toward that goal, which is making a real difference in the lives of the American people.”

Justice?  For all? Tell that to all those still rotting in prison, without conviction or charge, for strolling through the People’s House on January 6, 2021. Tell that to those who were snatched from their homes in the wee hours of the morning by armed feds when a simple summons to appear would have sufficed. Tell that to all those whose jobs were considered unessential. Tell that to all those in the military who were discharged because they wouldn’t accept an experimental substance into their bodies. Tell that to all those who have lost loved ones to violent crime, rates of which skyrocketed in the past two years due to Democrat policies — or to those who have lost loved ones to fentanyl because Democrats absolutely refuse to police our southern border. And tell it to America’s rapidly dwindling middle class, beset by historic inflation, supply chain problems, and rising taxes.

“Democrat” is to “justice” as “atheist” is to “faith.”

Or, as I like to say, as garlic is to vampires. But wait, it gets even better from there, if you can believe it.

Before closing, Pelosi penned what should be a shoo-in for the Most Preposterous Statement of the Year…if not in recorded history. She wrote: “One final thought that I wanted to leave with you is my belief that the House Democratic Caucus is the greatest collection of intellect, integrity and imagination assembled for the good of the American people.”

She was referring to the likes of Adam Schiff, Maxine Waters, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Jerrold Nadler, all of whose I.Q.s wouldn’t add up to Thomas Jefferson’s.

Nor Clarence Thomas’s, for that matter.

You could find a greater collection of intellect in any daycare center in America. You could find a greater collection of integrity in any whorehouse or prison. Imagination? Well, Pelosi might be closer to the truth on that one…given her statement on House Democrats’ intellect and integrity.

Heh. Nothing to add to that dead-on assessment. So long, you raddled old dingbat. Don’t let the door hit ya where the Good Lord…ugh, I don’t even want to finish that thought, it’s completely nauseating. Instead, let’s go with: don’t let the hammer hit ya where it did your bum-blasting boozehound of a “husband.” How’s that?

Pattern of (mis)behavior

Gee, quelle coincidence.

U.S Virgin Islands AG Fired during Biden Visit after Vowing to Expose Epstein’s Powerful Friends

The attorney general of the U.S. Virgin Islands has been fired just days after vowing to expose Jeffrey Epstein’s powerful friends and accomplices.

Denise George was reportedly “terminated” by the territory’s governor during Democrat President Joe Biden’s official visit to the islands.

Deceased child sex trafficker Epstein infamously owned a private island in the Virgin Islands where many of his victims have alleged the abuse took place.

The island, Little St. James, was known by locals and authorities as “Pedophile Island” and was visited by Epstein’s powerful friends.

The news of George’s firing comes just days after she made global headlines by moving to bring justice to those complicit in Epstein’s crimes.

And well into Bribem’s extended “vacation” there, no less. Which, apparently, was something of a working vacation, looks like. Lest we forget:

Joe Biden bragged about getting a Ukrainian prosecutor fired.
The president said that he instructed the then-president of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko, to fire the prosecutor general in efforts to tackle corruption.

On January 23, 2018, during a Council on Foreign Relations discussion, then Vice President Joe Biden was asked about Ukraine’s prospects for peace. Biden pursued an anti-corruption policy in Ukraine in 2016 that included a call for the resignation of the country’s top prosecutor who had previously investigated Burisma.

Biden recounted a story in which he allegedly told then-President Petro Poroshenko that the U.S. would not release $1 billion in loan guarantees unless Poroshenko fired the prosecutor general as part of anti-corruption efforts. Buzzfeed reports: “‘I looked at them and said, ‘I’m leaving in six hours,’” Biden told the crowd, taking a long look at his watch for effect. “‘If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.’ Well, son of a bitch.” Here the audience laughed. ‘He got fired.'”

Son of a bitch is right. That this corrupt old filthbag has somehow gotten away with fifty years of such sleazy, slimy maneuvering is as good an indicator as anyone ought ever to need of just how deeply embedded the rot in the US federal government is: all the way down to the fucking bone.

Hell in Winter

All hail the Battered Bastards of Bastogne.

Battle of the Bulge

The Battle of the Bulge, also known as the Ardennes Offensive, was the last major German offensive campaign on the Western Front during World War II. The battle lasted from 16 December 1944 to 28 January 1945, towards the end of the war in Europe. It was launched through the densely forested Ardennes region between Belgium and Luxembourg. It overlapped with the Alsace Offensive and subsequently the Colmar Pocket, another series of battles launched by the Germans in support of the Ardennes thrust.

The primary military objectives were to deny further use of the Belgian port of Antwerp to the Allies and to split the Allied lines, which potentially could have allowed the Germans to encircle and destroy the four Allied forces. Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler, who since December 1941 had assumed direct command of the German army, believed that achieving these objectives would compel the Western Allies to accept a peace treaty in the Axis powers‘ favor. By this time, it was palpable to virtually the entire German leadership including Hitler himself that they had no realistic hope of repelling the imminent Soviet invasion of Germany unless the Wehrmacht was able to concentrate the entirety of its remaining forces on the Eastern Front, which in turn obviously required that hostilities on the Western and Italian Fronts be terminated. The Battle of the Bulge remains among the most important battles of the war, as it marked the last major offensive attempted by the Axis Powers on the Western front. After their defeat, Germany would retreat for the remainder of the war.

The Germans achieved a total surprise attack on the morning of 16 December 1944, due to a combination of Allied overconfidence, preoccupation with Allied offensive plans, and poor aerial reconnaissance due to bad weather. American forces bore the brunt of the attack. The Germans attacked a weakly defended section of the Allied line, taking advantage of heavily overcast weather conditions that grounded the Allies’ superior air forces. Fierce American resistance on the northern shoulder of the offensive, around Elsenborn Ridge, and in the south, around Bastogne, blocked German access to key roads to the northwest and west that they counted on for success. Columns of armor and infantry that were supposed to advance along parallel routes found themselves on the same roads. This congestion, and terrain that favored the defenders, threw the German advance behind schedule and allowed the Allies to reinforce the thinly placed troops.

The farthest west the offensive reached was the village of Foy-Nôtre-Dame, south east of Dinant, being stopped by the U.S. 2nd Armored Division on 24 December 1944. Improved weather conditions from around 24 December permitted air attacks on German forces and supply lines, which sealed the failure of the offensive. On 26 December the lead element of Patton’s U.S. Third Army reached Bastogne from the south, ending the siege. Although the offensive was effectively broken by 27 December, when the trapped units of 2nd Panzer Division made two break-out attempts with only partial success, the battle continued for another month before the front line was effectively restored to its position prior to the attack. In the wake of the defeat, many experienced German units were out of men and equipment, and the survivors retreated to the Siegfried Line.

The Germans’ initial attack involved 410,000 men; just over 1,400 tanks, tank destroyers, and assault guns; 2,600 artillery pieces; and over 1,000 combat aircraft, as well as large numbers of other armored fighting vehicles (AFVs). These were reinforced a couple of weeks later, bringing the offensive’s total strength to around 450,000 troops, and 1,500 tanks and assault guns. Between 63,222 and 98,000 of these men were killedmissingwounded in action, or captured. The battle severely depleted Germany’s armored forces, which remained largely unreplaced throughout the remainder of the war. German Luftwaffe personnel, and later also Luftwaffe aircraft (in the concluding stages of the engagement) also sustained heavy losses.

From among the Americans’ peak strength of 610,000 troops, there were 89,000 casualties, including about 19,000 killed. The “Bulge” was the largest and bloodiest single battle fought by the United States in World War II and the third-deadliest campaign in American history.

Number one being Normandy earlier in that same year, as one might expect, and number two being the Meuse/Argonne offensive towards the end of the War To End All Wars, in late 1918.

The thing that I’ve always found striking about this pivotal moment in the history of not just the US and/or Germany, but of Western Civ itself, is the photos of the dauntless American GIs who fought in it. Look at them: these aren’t boys here, they’re men. In comparison to today’s simpering, overly-feminized boy-men, these men have been there and done that, and it’s written all over their war-weary faces.

This is not merely a matter of chronological age, understand—the average age of an enlisted US infantryman in WW2 was only 22. An old but evergreen Austin Bay post might help to explain some of the differences between then and now.

Captain and medical doctor James E. Kreisle’s Dec. 6, 1944 letter, posted from Clervaux, Luxembourg, begins with a chest thump: “Dear Mum, Dad and Peg: I’ve just returned to my outfit after a leave which allowed me two days in Paris.”

Leave? Impossible, Captain. Fall 1944’s cold, wet weather and illness kept Army doctors busy, especially surgeons in “separate” units like Kreisle’s 14th Cavalry Group. Then luck struck. The young Texan viewed his Paris trip as a wartime idyll. He hit a nightclub, the Lido. He managed “Christmas shopping”; perfume for Mum and Peg “six dishes” for the family in Austin.

Forty-eight Parisian hours compensated for the “chilly” to and fro in a deuce and a half that bounced him through Belgium and France, and then returned him to the 14th Cav, the Allied covering force in the Western front’s quiet sector, the Ardennes Forest.

Lean, white-haired Kreisle introduced himself to me in 1996, in an Austin, Texas, barbershop. He said he enjoyed my books. I might appreciate his WW2 letters. “I was in the 14th Cav,” he said. “You know where we were Dec. 16 (1944)?” Yes … Losheim Gap. He said: “I survived The Bulge.”

“Of course, it wasn’t really quiet,” Kreisle told me, after I read his letters and his tragic account of the Battle of the Bulge: “we thought we were close to winning the war. 14th Cav, in the Losheim Gap, scattered from Vielsalm (Belgium) to Germany (border). …We had the 106th Infantry Division on a flank — very green. On the German side, Sixth SS Panzer Army was assembling. We didn’t know it. Until December 16th.” Bulge “was a psychological about-face.”

The defense of Bastogne made the 101st Airborne the world’s most famous division. Bastogne was the Alamo as a victory. However, critical battles erupted throughout the “bulge” Hitler’s gamble carved in allied lines. Some of the most critical occurred Dec.16 and 17 as elements of 14th Cav, 99th ID, 2nd ID, 7th Armored Division and the ill-fated 106th ID delayed Panzers for five minutes here, 10 there. The 28th ID soldiers made a stand at Clervaux, surrendering after a Panzer broached the castle walls. Troop A, 14th Cav engaged 1st SS Panzer at Honsfeld. Panzers, Kreisle wrote, “immune to our light weapons, rolled right into the village and leveled their guns at the command post, which had apparently been pointed out by civilians.”

Jim Kreisle’s Bulge was escaping under fire in an ambulance. “One sensed an atmosphere of suppressed panic,” he wrote. He commanded a surgeon’s retreat over forest trails, west from Herresbach — through snow, mud and sporadic artillery fire. His medics directed wounded men tasked with carrying more severely wounded men “in this gloomy place.”

Dec. 24: clear weather, U.S. aircraft strike German columns. Dec. 27: As remnants of two 14th Cav troops counter-attack, Kreisle writes, “Dear Folks … the German tide has been fairly well stemmed.” Dec. 28: After 13 days of continual action, his ambulance and aid men are relieved.

“I’m glad you liked the memoir,” Kreisle told me. “The battle was … confusion. The setback really stunned us.” His letter home of Dec. 15, “the day before,” thanked relatives for sending him tamales and chili, food so “reminiscent of Texas.” His favorite Bulge history: Robert Merrimam’s “Dark December.” Dr. Kreisle died in 2002. God bless him, and the brave soldiers of his generation.

A most hearty “amen” to that. We shan’t see their like again, and must remain eternally grateful that we ever did at all. I’ve said it many times: if we had to rely on the contemporary generation to fight off another Hitler today, we’d best be learning to sing Deutschland Über Alles in the original German toot fucking sweet.

Clean bill of (mental) health

OHHH yeah, this toxic little mass-murdering homunculus is perfectly normal, no doubt it.

Fauci exit interview: retiring NIAID chief shows off home filled with Fauci portraits and bobbleheads, talks in third person

Incredibly, there are pictures. Me, I’d be so afraid of anyone else ever finding out that I was as incurably egomaniacal as this dwarfish toad Dr I AM The Science™ is, I’d never allow anybody anywhere near my home, much less actually inside it to get photographs of my shame for publication purposes.

“The walls in Dr. Anthony S. Fauci’s home office are adorned with portraits of him,” writes the NYT’s Sheryl Gay Stolberg.

An embarrassed Fauci is uncomfortable with her being there and witnessing all of these bobbleheads and portraits in his house, she writes, because he believes the “far right” will now attack him as an “egomaniac.”

Appropriately enough, asshole. Because, y’know, YOU ARE.

Regarding the book, I recommend the unauthorized edition: The Real Anthony Fauci.

  • Fauci yet again talks about himself in the third person

“What I would like to do is make it a real memoir, which is a life story of which Covid is a part. Because if you look at what Tony Fauci was and is, Tony Fauci is not defined by Covid.”

No, of course not, perish the thought. There’s also your intentionally-deceptive mishandling of the AIDS scare; your greedhead self-enrichment via quiet, quasi-legal investments in Big Pharma companies and drug patents throughout your entire career; your patently evil foray into animal cruelty and torture; and your brazen lies concerning the funding of gain-of-function research over the years to consider as well.

“What really, really concerns me is the politicization of public health principles,” Fauci starts.

He then politicizes public health principles:

“How you can have red states undervaccinated and blue states well vaccinated and having deaths much more prevalent among people in red states because they’re undervaccinated — that’s tragic for the population.”

Yet another lie.

  • Fauci is asked what people don’t know about him

He replies:

They don’t know hardly anything about the physician aspect of me and how sensitive I am and empathetic towards illness and suffering.”

Again, appropriately enough. I mean, how much of an “aspect” can there really be to know about regarding a “physician” who went straight into FederalGovCo “service” after med school, and has never seen, diagnosed, or treated so much as a single patient throughout his entire career as a “doctor,” prithee tell?

But hey, he “identifies” as a doctor, as “sensitive” and “empathetic,” which these days seems to be good enough. Y’know, for government work, as the saying goes.

Get over yourdamnedself, Fraudci; you’re not a real doctor, regardless of what your diploma might claim. You’re a fucking bureaucrat, not a jot or tittle more, an especially maleficent one to boot, and history is going to remember you exactly as you deserve to be remembered. If you find that at all puzzling, think “Dr” Josef Mengele. That ought to help give you a clue.

It’s time to check your kid’s toys for grooming materials

They keep saying no one is grooming your kids but here we are once again.  Multiple toy companies have gone full groomer.

Our Weekly Clown World newsletter brought to your attention some of the groomer toys available to children — Fisher Price’s “RuPaul Drag Race” trans doll set for toddlers, Walmart’s body pillow shaped like a penis advertised for adults and children while the picture of the item showed a very young girl snuggling with the massive penis. And you might have thought, toys like that are rare and they slipped through the production cracks, but you would be wrong.

With the recent news that American Girl Doll books are encouraging your daughters to transition we’ve been getting a lot of submissions regarding toys. So, just in time for the biggest toy holiday of the year, we decided to take you for a walk down memory lane of how they are grooming kids via toys.

Earlier this month American Girl, an extremely popular doll company, released a 96-page book “A Smart Girl’s Guide: Body Image” with a section titled “Gender Joy”. This book recommended on Amazon for fourth graders through sixth graders is encouraging children to delay puberty.

“If you haven’t gone through puberty yet, the doctor might offer medicine to delay your body’s changes, giving you more time to think about your gender identity.”

Scarier yet, they are grooming children to circumvent their parents!

“If you don’t have an adult you trust, there are organizations across the country that can help you.”

Although this is outrageous and we are certainly seeing an uptick in transgender ideology being pushed on minors, it is important to remember this is nothing new!

Hasbro Trolls Poppy doll has caused an uproar from moms who were horrified at the sexual sounds that came out of the doll when you pushed the button that was suspiciously placed on her private parts. Of course, Hasbro claimed it was an oversight.

Ahh, but of course. Isn’t it always?

This is a truly sick, sick society we’re living in. More disgusting still is that, as the lady says, the sickness gets even worse and more staggeringly grotesque from there.

FREEDOM!!!

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
Daniel Webster

“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."

"To put it simply, the Left is the stupid and the insane, led by the evil. You can’t persuade the stupid or the insane and you had damn well better fight the evil."
Skeptic

"There is no better way to stamp your power on people than through the dead hand of bureaucracy. You cannot reason with paperwork."
David Black, from Turn Left For Gibraltar

"If the laws of God and men, are therefore of no effect, when the magistracy is left at liberty to break them; and if the lusts of those who are too strong for the tribunals of justice, cannot be otherwise restrained than by sedition, tumults and war, those seditions, tumults and wars, are justified by the laws of God and man."
John Adams

"The limits of tyranny are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress."
Frederick Douglass

"Give me the media and I will make of any nation a herd of swine."
Joseph Goebbels

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.”
Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it."
NC Reed, from Parno's Peril

"I just want a government that fits in the box it originally came in."
