McHENRY, N.D. — According to court papers, it was not an accident but apparently a politically motivated attack.
The fatal vehicle-pedestrian incident happened early Sunday morning, Sept. 18, in McHenry, North Dakota, about 120 miles northwest of Fargo and 54 miles north of Jamestown.
Prosecutors allege moments before he was killed, 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson called his mom to come rescue him because 41-year-old Shannon Brandt was chasing him in the city of McHenry, where the street dance had just wrapped up.
By the time she could get there, her son was dead.
Brandt was officially charged Monday with vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of a deadly accident.
“He was the one who called 911 to report the crash,” said North Dakota Highway Patrol Capt. Bryan Niewind.
Court papers show Brandt called 911 around 2:30 a.m. Sunday and told the 911 dispatcher that he just hit Ellingson, claiming the teen was part of a Republican extremist group and was calling people to come get Brandt after a political argument.
This sort of thing just keeps right on happening, again and again and again, which will continue until we finally decide to do something about it. Sorry and all, but that will NOT involve archly pointing out the violent, hate-filled Left’s boundless “hypocrisy”; patting ourselves on the back for being “better than they are”; or, God help us, “VOTING HARDERER!” at them. But hey, we should cut the vile waste of skin a little slack, maybe. After all, he was only following the marching orders explicitly laid out by our Pedophile “***pResident***” for him. As Sefton notes:
Like the steering wheel that was in this bastard’s hands, or the rifle that was in James Hodgkinson’s hands, or the Molotov cocktails that were in Antifa’s hands, and so on and so on and scoobie doobie doobie. This attack was not a one-off just as Biden’s call for what amounts to a national pogrom, horrible as they were and unprecedented in coming from the occupant of the highest elected office in the land, were not one-offs. In one form or another, the rhetoric against us has been building in volume and intensity for years now.
Recall in the aftermath of the horrific attack in Oklahoma City, Bill Clinton blamed talk radio in a gossamer-thin veiled indictment of Rush Limbaugh. When confronted by the lie, Clinton attempted to walk it back by blaming some yahoos in the wilds of Michigan somewhere, who were speaking on “ham radio.” And before Kurt/Forrest Gump or some other troll attempts to tie us at the hip to Timothy McVeigh, he was resoundingly and loudly disavowed, as was the mass murder he committed as soon as the news broke that day.
We abhor violence. We detest it to our core. We beg and plead just to be left alone to live our lives as we want, within the constraints of our faith and our morals, and in return we gladly afford the same to anyone else. It is the anti-American Left and their party, the Democrats, that believe exactly the opposite. It is they who are the purveyors of death, violence, hate and incitement in the name of accruing absolute power. Even in the wake of this horrific attack, which you can bet your ass is only the beginning especially in the run up to the midterms, Joey opened his trap again:
During comments at the ironically titled “United We Stand” summit last week, Joe Biden declared that “hate” runs throughout American history, and once again singled out those who don’t agree with his politics as ‘violent extremists’.“
There’s a through line of hate from massacres of indigenous people to the original sin of slavery,” Biden declared.
He continued, “The terror of the clan, to anti-immigration violence against the Irish, Italians, Chinese, Mexicans. So many of those laced through our history.”
“There’s a through line of violence against religious groups anti semitic, anti Catholic, anti Mormon, anti Muslim, anti Hindu, anti Sikh,” Biden further asserted.
Biden vowed to expose “hate-fueled violence”, directly citing Trump supporters and conservatives in general.
“Unfortunately, such hate-fueled violence and threats are not new to America,” Biden proclaimed, adding “hate never fully goes away, it only hides.”
Projection — in this case projectile vomiting — ain’t just a river in Egypt. Make no mistake, Biden’s revolting words at Independence Hall were not just a call to arms for braindead lefties like the goon in the car that ran down the kid or even Antifa and BLM. He is fully marshaling every single arm of this illegitimate and corrupt government to turn it into a massive police state that is hell bent on crushing the life out of us.
Naturally, the scum-gargling piece of quasi-human debris bonded out with a quickness, a real deal at only a paltry 5k.
He’s only being charged with vehicular homicide — not first-degree murder, which is what he actually confessed to.
Vehicular homicide is not a murder statute — it is a manslaughter rap. It is about an unintentional homicide by vehicle, when under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
THIS GUY HUNTED THIS TEENAGER DOWN, DELIBERATELY RAN HIM DOWN, THEN LEFT HIM BLEEDING IN AN ALLEY TO DIE.
That is intentional murder.
He admitted as such.
And he’s only charged with a drunk driving Oopsie?
No FBI investigation launched, even though his crime is a textbook Domestic Violent Extremist murder of a teenager.
As I noted, this Domestic Violent Extremist murder of a teenager occurred just 19 days after Joe Biden branded any Trump supporter an enemy of the state, inciting the Democrat faithful to hatred and violence.
And now a murder of a teenager — and rather than being held with no bail offered, he’s allowed to walk by putting up a mere $5,000. The bond is $50,000 but a bail company only requires you put up 10% of the bond; they put up the other 90%.
You all already know it, but I gotta say it anyhow: if somebody on Our Side had done the exact same thing to a fucking Libtard, the bond would have been a million dollars if not more—as Miguel at GFZ reminds us, bail for young Kyle Rittenhouse, accused of the heinous “crime” of acting in self-defense against an armed, bloodthirsty mob in hot pursuit of him, was set at TWO MILLION DOLLARS, ferchrissakes—assuming bond was even offered at all. You know it, I know it, and most important of all, THEY know it. BCE notes the crossing of a crucial line, with a little compare-contrast thrown in:
John Wilder of Wilder, Wealthy and Wise does his Civil War thing every week… pretty much calling it as he sees it, along with some very very good ‘punny’ Memes, and some that he needs to be taken out back and beaten with a club like a baby seal for. Anywho (Hi John! 😉 ) The whole ‘genocide’ thing has been on a LOT of peoples minds, especially anyone who believes in normalcy, sanity, two genders and maybe even that America is a nice place? Seems believing in these and a slew of what used to be nominally ‘normal’ (for the sake of the non insane people out there) makes you a Terrorist right up there with Bin Laden or Carlos the Jackal.
The line of which I speak happened on Sunday. A fuckhead Leftard (age 41) used his car to do a hit and run on a 18 year old kid…
This fucking scumbag had the audacity to say he was ‘in fear of his life’ and was somehow justified in squishing a kid. He was unsurprisingly intoxicated (DUI) when he did it… so IMO, the very fact that not only does this guy run over and kill a kid ‘from the other side of the political spectrum’ he openly admits it and then gets bonded out.Meanwhile, the January 6th Trespassers (misdemeanor at best) sit rotting the fuck away being tortured by the fucking nigger guards, who by all reports have been ‘encouraged to reeducate the vile rayyyyyycist Republican bastards’… I also think that’s a BIG reason they’re not letting anyone out… if word gets out for really reelz on just how fucked up the J6 kids are being treated, Lynch Mobs might just actually make a reappearance. Any bets that the few who got released are forced to sign some chickenshit Ironclad Nondisclosure Act to stay out of the hoosegow?No takers? Yeah… I thought so too.They hate us and want us dead
It can’t be said enough, and now? In North Dakota, which is possibly the. last. place. I’d thought I’d ever see some fucktardation like that happen? If that happened there, it sure as hell is going to spread, especially if things start getting tight(er) over the next few. Stay strapped or get clapped and be the Gray Man with a Head on a Swivel.
Try as I might, and I am, I can conjure no good reason why this murdering excrescence should be allowed to survive to see the opening day of his “trial.” I assure you without hesitation that, should any shitlib even attempt to do such a thing to my child, I would do absolutely everything in my power to see to it that a spell in prison would be the very LAST thing he needed to worry about. All in all, this seems like the perfect occasion for another Captain Mal rerun, I do believe.
I hope he’s mistaken, but I fear he isn’t.
At SteynOnline we no longer observe the 9/11 anniversary, for reasons I outlined last year:
The war is lost, at home and abroad. On the domestic front, we doubled the rate of Muslim immigration to the west and began assimilating ourselves with Islam’s strictures on freedom of expression and the like. The decade-and-a-half since the Danish Mohammed cartoons has been one long remorseless surrender on core western liberties. When a school teacher gets beheaded in the street, there is no outrage at the act, just a mild regret that he should have been foolish enough to provoke his own fate. Even the milder jests from the immediate post-9/11 era – the cartoon of the woman trying on new burqas in the changing room and wondering, ‘Does my bomb look big in this?’ – would not be published today:
In the broader society, our rulers quickly determined that it was easier to punish us than our enemies. The post-9/11 security state surely helped soften up western populations for the ChiCom-19 lockdowns, in which entire nations have been reduced to TSA-administered airports.
As for the war overseas, it ended with a military that can do everything except win handing the keys to Afghanistan back to the guys who pulled off 9/11 – and apologizing for the two-decade inconvenience by gifting the mullahs with some of the most expensive infrastructure on the planet plus an air force, approximately five assault rifles for every Taliban fighter, and express check-in for the forty-seven per cent of the Afghan population that apparently served as US translators.
I thought I could not despise the men who brought us to this pretty pass any more than I do. But here ya go:
CBS News has confirmed military prosecutors and defense attorneys are negotiating potential plea deals that could take the death penalty off the table for the five defendants accused in the 9/11 attacks.
That would be the hairy-backed mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his four marginally less hirsute co-conspirators. So, after two decades of leisurely legal jousting back and forth through, this is how it ends. Don’t worry, the plea deals are premised on the quintet being given “substantial sentences” – which one assumes means something less than life without the possibility of parole, else why not say so? In addition, the men will receive “treatment for alleged torture they experienced while in CIA custody“.
Oh, really? How about financial compensation?
Gotta hand it to KSM: He fought the law, and he won. He was captured in Rawalpindi on March 1st 2003, which is nineteen-and-a-half years ago – or twice as long as the First and Second World Wars combined.
If you were about to roll your eyes and sneer “Is there nothing this sclerotic pseudo-republic can do?”, hey, not so fast. Per MSNBC’s finest:
September 11 was a terrorist attack.
January 6 was a terrorist attack…
Both were attacks on America.
And we must seek justice for the latter as we did for the former.
Er, are you sure you got that the right way round? In the time it takes KSM’s lawyers to file a motion of reconsideration of their motion to continue the scheduling conference to schedule the reconsideration of their previous motion to continue, the January 6th “terrorists” have been banged up in solitary, railroaded into copping a plea, and led off to the Big House. It would no longer surprise me if the men who plotted the murder of the 2,977 good souls lost that day were out and strolling the boulevards of Jalalabad long before the 1/6 “insurrectionists” are freed.
Wouldn’t surprise me either, not in the least. But then, why would it? The Left despises us far more than they ever will their unlikely-seeming ally and confrere KSM, whose abiding hatred for America and individual liberty they share, if from a secular, libertine perspective instead of the barbarian-savage pseudo-religion one. And make no mistake, it’s the Left who are in charge here. “Desperate,” “panicked”? Sure, pull the other one, whydon’tcha. It has a bell on it.
Sorry, Joe, we heard ya just fine the first time.
Joe Biden on Friday walked back his attacks on the millions of American citizens who support former President Donald Trump, telling reporters that he doesn’t consider “any Trump supporter a threat to the country.”
This comes less than a day after he called Trump supporters “MAGA forces,” and warned that they are a “threat to this country.”
The Biden White House in recent weeks has sharpened its attacks against its political opponents, calling Trump supporters a far-right “extremist threat” to Democracy who are motivated by an ideology of “semi-fascism.” That disturbingly harsh rhetoric culminated in a Hitleresque diatribe Thursday night, shocking and horrifying at least half the nation.
“Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our Republic,” Biden bellowed during his speech at Independence National Historical Parkin Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He went on to assert that “there’s no question that the Republican party today is dominated, driven, and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans,” and repeated his claim that they are “a threat to this country.”
Doubling down on this message, Biden’s Twitter account sent out the following tweet just before his address: “Donald Trump and MAGA Republicans are a threat to the very soul of this country.”
Following an event on the American Rescue Plan in the South Court Auditorium on the White House campus, Friday morning, Biden denied that he called Trump supporters a threat to the country.
“I don’t consider any Trump supporter a threat to the country,” he said in response to a question from Fox News reporter Peter Doocy.
In fairness, as conservative commentator Auron MacIntyre quipped on Twitter: Biden “may legitimately not remember that he gave a speech last night.”
Yup. Even more important, we must all bear in mind that—last night, today, and EVERY day, until he finally assumes room temperature and joins the Choir invisible at long, long last—the marginally-ambulatory rutabaga was only saying what he’d been told to say. Deb closes out her post with some bitter truth from, of all places, the RNC.
Here’s something Joe Biden DOES NOT want you to see.

Sadly, the comments section abounds with depressing hoo-raw like this:
Biden is not allowed to walk back his assertion that half the country is deplorable, dangerous, evil, criminal.
We will highlight his speech all the way to Election Day.
Uh huh, that’s nice. And then, when they rig it just like they already did in 2020…?
Personally, I think it amounts to adding insult to injury when the addled-pated old fraud pokes out that forked tongue of his to announce that hey, gang, I really don’t consider y’all a threat like I said I did last night. For the sake of this beleaguered, virtually extinct nation, we’d all better hope like hell that there are still enough of us out there who DO pose a credible threat to the Power’s Sacred Democracy™ (GAG, SPIT) to save our bacon in the end.
We stand at the crossroads, ostensibly “led” by a corrupt, senile pedophile who is stumbling through history without the vaguest clue of who he is, what he’s doing, or where he’s going.
The meat of the speech was no better than Biden’s health. He kept repeating the term “MAGA,” painting those who voted for Donald Trump as evil fascists that pose a direct threat to the very well-being of the nation. That’s ludicrous, and as I’ve shared before, it’s also incredibly dangerous. When you begin attack tens of millions of Americans as scum, suggesting they are going to destroy “our democracy,” that justifies just about anything in response, doesn’t it? Someone is going to get hurt based on his incitement.
For sure and certain, which is perfectly meet and just. After tonight, it is absolutely imperative for Real Americans—or, put in the way I plan to use from here on out because fuck Joe Biden, that’s why, MAGA Americans—to see to it that it’ll be shitlibs doing most of the hurting, not Our Side.
Some may see this as a sad or lamentable situation, but I must admit that I no longer can. Let our course of action henceforth be the one commended to us by our Founding Fathers as the only just and proper way to deal with tyrants like Biden and his vile Democrat Party. Contra Pedo Jaux and his forked-tongue blather, when anger is righteous, it should be embraced not with reluctance or regret, but pridefully, even joyously. The solemn American duty to offer stiff resistance to all tyranny for the sake of ourselves and our posterity is no burden; it’s an honor.
All that aside, though, Biden’s brazen call for violence, bloodshed, and hatred was not entirely without its moments.

Heh. That’s the spirit. Resist we much, fuckface.
Update! STILL not getting it.
Tonight’s speech was a dark moment in American history. It shows a man desperate and gasping at straws as he sees his presidency—and the country he claims to love—crumbling around him.
“Desperate”? No, no, a thousand times no. What I saw was a cocksure, aggressive usurper blatantly doing battlespace prep, urging his Satanic followers on to war against their erstwhile countrymen. Unless and until we recognize what’s taking place right before our very eyes, we can never truly be ready for what’s coming.
Gotta be this one, from Reagan’s pal Gorby.
Imagine a country that flies into space, launches Sputniks, creates such a defense system, and it can’t resolve the problem of women’s pantyhose. There’s no toothpaste, no soap powder, not the basic necessities of life. It was incredible and humiliating to work in such a government.
Funny, our own domestic baggers de douche don’t seem at all embarrassed about it.
Okay: first, this happened.
DeSantis on Fauci: “I’m just sick of seeing him. I know he says he’s gonna retire. Someone needs to grab that little elf and chuck him across the Potomac!”pic.twitter.com/zB20gKOiZZ

Needless to say, being a diehard DeSantis fan myself as well as someone who despises the malignant, lying dwarf Fauxci with every fiber of his being, I thoroughly enjoyed Da Guv’s statement—as did his audience, who apparently responded with, as noted crawly-thing David French sniffily sniffed, “wild cheering.” Unsurprisingly, French was hardly the only dainty and sanctimonious NeverTrumporrhoid who found DeSantis’ laugh line upsetting; Ace posts several other like examples of dudgeon most high, before uncorking a hilarious fusillade of his own.
Two interesting points about this Fake Upper-Crust Sensibility thing:
First, it’s fake. This is a competition among weak and inferior men to prove themselves strong and superior. They can’t prove themselves strong and superior in actual strength or superiority, so they change the criteria to better fit them, that is, a more feminine sort of competition they could actually beat other men at. Namely, “refinement,” taste, and a capacity to be offended and terrified by tiny things like humorous jibes and mice skittering across the kitchen floor.
There are actual objective criteria to determine who is the strongest, the smartest, etc., but it’s up for grabs to say who has “the finest taste.” So Noah Blum can compete in the Princess and the Pea Olympics and have a very good chance of winning, especially because most actual men would not compete in such a delicate contest.
Second, this is again just a game of showing hatred for the dreaded Lower Orders. David French and Noah Blum and the rest of the Fake Aristo Swells are always straining to discover exciting new Class Distinctions they can adorn themselves with to prove they are not like the raucous and unseemly Working Classes. A feather of delicate sensibilities worn behind the ear, a ribbon of refined taste in Marvel Movie Appreciation dangled over the heart.
Anything to show that the New Nobility is different than and superior to those thick-fingered White Niggers that vote for Trump and think that a nation’s borders should be enforced.
Fuck off, fairies. Go knit a doily for your wife’s boyfriend to put his drink on.
Oh, and French: Have the lambs stopped screaming, French?
Heh. SIDE NOTE: Ace decided to asterisk-out the N-word in his post, likely in the interests of politesse. But as CF Lifers will already be aware, I’m hindered by no such compunctions myself, so I went ahead and just said it right out loud, in front of God and everybody.
As for Fraudci: physically, literally booting his worthless ass across the Potomac of right ought to be the very least of that good-enough-for-government-work rectal polyp’s worries. The damage he did during his overextended sinecure as a top-level FederalGovCo stooge calls for one hell of a lot more, and worse.
They won’t stop.
It’s Inevitable: Trump Will Be Indicted
Americans should prepare for the spectacle of Donald Trump pleading not guilty to charges brought by the Biden Justice Department.
It now appears inevitable that the Justice Department will bring criminal charges against the former president. FBI Director Christopher Wray’s stunt at Mar-a-Lago on August 8 is part of creating the optical illusion that Donald Trump is guilty of any number of crimes related to January 6 or the mishandling of secret government documents—or both. On Monday, the Justice Department subpoenaed another Trump White House lawyer as the legal momentum accelerates.
As evidence mounts that Trump supporters cannot get a fair trial in Washington—surveys of prospective jurors conducted by defense counsel show a heavy bias against January 6 protesters—D.C. District Court judges have denied each change of venue motion. Coverage of the January 6 select committee hearings undoubtedly has amplified that bias, especially for high-profile defendants such as members of the Oath Keepers. The committee has focused on the roles of both the Oath Keepers and Proud Boys, airing videos of their conduct that day and attempting to tie these alleged militias to Donald Trump.
A week after a former member of the Oath Keepers testified before a televised hearing in July, defense attorneys representing the Oath Keepers filed another motion to delay the trial and move it out of D.C. “The main point we have to consider is that you have a congressional committee that goes out and paints the Oath Keepers as white supremacists,” one defense attorney explained to Judge Amit Mehta, another Obama appointee.
Ahh, there’s another of those hunnert-and-ten-percent all-American names again, like I mentioned the other night.
Mehta rejected the argument and took umbrage at another attorney’s suggestion the committee’s work was political. “This is not a forum to express your political views or your views about the motivations of the committee,” Mehta scolded. “I don’t think they’re hosting the hearings just to interrupt this trial.”
He denied the motion; the first Oath Keepers trial begins next month. It’s possible the Justice Department will charge Trump for conspiracy for allegedly working with the “militias” to attack the Capitol.
This is the legal and judicial circle of hell now fired up to come for President Trump—a vengeful Justice Department run by Obama loyalists working with a weaponized FBI to bring criminal charges against hundreds of Trump supporters who then face the wrath of enraged judges of both political parties. There is no way out.
And at this point, there’s no way out for
MerrickLavrentiy (FIFYA—M) Garland, either. Democrats have raised expectations that Trump soon will be in handcuffs; failure to do so will result in a harsh backlash by their own voters this fall. After six years of promises, Democrats better deliver the goods on Trump or face intra-party revolt.
Americans should prepare for the inevitable—the unprecedented sight of a former president pleading not guilty to crimes he is alleged to have committed by a Justice Department run by his successor and potential rival in the next presidential election.
Fair enough, I suppose, as long as the filthy, fascist Do(In)J is fully awake themselves to the need to prepare for an appropriately, umm, kinetic response when they fit Trump for the shiny chrome bracelets.
Of course, Jules is right, although by pulling up short at “indicted,” she didn’t take the thought quite as far as she should have. At this point, can anybody still seriously imagine that Trump is NOT headed directly to prison, via any stratagem, pretext, or ruse the federal juggernaut can gin up for the purpose? In the immortal words of good ol’ Mike Ness:
The man who was one half of “The Lovers,” as President Trump called them, disgraced FBI investigator Peter Strzok, Mr. Russia Collusion hoax extraordinaire himself, has implored America to trust the FBI on the Mar-a-Lago raid.
Strzok appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe program to argue in support of the integrity of the FBI because they really mean it this time.
Host Joe Scarborough caused a spit-take when he said in passing that “we never believed” the Steele Dossier “from the start.” But the dossier turd was polished by Scarborough’s own guest and Strzok’s on-the-side honey, FBI Attorney Lisa Page. Joe’s bloviation continued and he eventually got to a question, sort of, with the pronouncement, “the FBI makes mistakes, the church makes mistakes, people make mistakes. Should this be any reason for Americans not trust what the FBI and DOJ are doing now in pursuit of protecting classified documents? [sic]”
Sit down, because you’re not going to believe what Strzok said. “Well, yes, Joe, absolutely the American public should trust what the FBI’s doing.” He continued, conflating the “Midyear Exam” — Hillary Clinton’s email scandal — with “Crossfire Hurricane” — the fake Russia Collusion scam — and the raid on President Donald Trump’s home. “You know, I think back on the year and a half I spent with the team looking at Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server. There was no concern, there was no outrage on behalf of any Republican.” Which brings to mind a question: Why would any Republican be upset about the investigation into the chardonnay-swilling Secretary of State keeping a non-government server on which she did sensitive government business at home? For all the world’s sophisticated spy agencies to read secret State Department files — and, of course, Hillary’s Yoga poses and Chelsea’s wedding plans? In that case, Republicans asked for an investigation, not an invasion.
“We used search warrants and conducted a very invasive investigation…It’s not that the FBI is targeting any one side or the other.” Scarborough sat stone-faced as Strzok went on, “What you see is the FBI going out on a day-in and day-out basis, objectively investigating allegations of law.” Joe never followed up with a query about the FBI raiding Hillary’s Chappaqua manse, which didn’t happen.
“Trust us,” is it? Die in a fucking fire, Government-man. The very fact that you still walk the Earth a free man is a shame and a disgrace, one which befouls the very concept of decency and honor.
The government is NOT your friend.
Well, of course it did. And why the hell wouldn’t it? Every good soldier knows that to be effective, an army trains for the enemy it expects to be fighting.
The training was featured in the 2021 IRS annual report, which shows agents at the agency’s National Criminal Investigation Training Academy (NCITA), which is located within the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) in Brunswick, Georgia.
Training also includes “physical fitness conditioning and use of force training, which includes firearms, weaponless tactics, and building entry,” according to the report.
“In addition to SAIT, NCITA assists in providing advanced training to special agents in use of force, firearms instruction, defensive tactics, and building entry.”
The training simulation is likely to prompt concern following the revelation of an IRS job posting that announced it was looking to hire people who are ready to kill.
The job ad listed one of the “major duties” of IRS agents to be able to “carry a firearm and be willing to use deadly force, if necessary.”
Oh, be assured that they’ll always deem it “necessary.” And in a less upside-down, inside-out, topsy-turvy America, liberty-loving patriots would diligently see to it that it WAS, too.
(Via Wes Renegade)
FBI Director Christopher Wray gave remarks in Omaha, Nebraska today. He was questioned about reaction to the FBI raid on President Trump’s home and noted threats circulating online against federal agents and the Justice Department are “deplorable and dangerous.” “I’m always concerned about threats to law enforcement,” Wray said. “Violence against law enforcement is not the answer, no matter who you’re upset with.”
Director Wray also noted that FBI agents should be “valued and cherished” for their willingness to “put their lives on the line” to protect the institutions of government.
Yeah, you just hold your breath waiting on that, you sniveling, puke-a-licious douchenozzle.
This is the same agency that refused to prosecute any FBI agents involved in the cover-up operation to protect rapes of U.S. female gymnasts, and the same FBI agency who conducted a four-year corrupt investigation of false Trump-Russia accusations manufactured by Democrat political operatives.
Which barely amounts to even a trifling litany of FBI transgressions, an infinitesimally tiny drop in a staggeringly capacious bucket.
The collapse of institutional credibility has nothing to do with deplorable Americans and everything to do with their own conduct.
Precisely so. You reap it, you sow it, dorksnort. None but the most wilfully purblind of self-deluded ninnyheimers would put any faith or trust at all in you at this late stage of the game. Die screaming, whydon’tcha. Or, to tweak a grand old Irish locution a wee dram, may you descend into Hell an hour before the angels know you’re dead. Now please excuse me for a sec while I go look for that World’s Smallest Violin I know I got lying around here someplace.
Root. Branch. Bough.
The solution to the abuses we now endure is not just to subject the FBI to another fruitless inspector general investigation but to dismantle it completely. The bureau cannot be the focus of yet another congressional hearing. FBI Director Christopher Wray, like his predecessors, is more than happy to sit smirking while a handful of grandstanding congressmen and senators pound the table and yell on C-SPAN. Then he’ll jet off for a holiday vacation on a taxpayer-funded private jet while the same congressmen vote to increase his budget. Again.
No, the FBI must be rendered into component parts and distributed to the four winds.
The bureau has always had its problems and its detractors. Since the days of J. Edgar Hoover keeping his own “private” files on elected politicians and famous persons, the FBI has had a political streak. As an agency it has always been savvy about its reputation, bureaucratically out-dueling federal departments that sought to infringe on the bureau’s perceived preeminence in the fields of federal law enforcement and counterintelligence. But most of the FBI’s politicization had to do with maintaining its own administrative superiority and independence, not serving as muscle for a particular political party.
That’s no longer the case.
The FBI’s actions over the past six years make perfectly clear that the FBI is more than willing to serve as the enforcement arm of the Democratic Party. It serves as its patron’s shield in matters large and small. It exonerated Hillary Clinton for her illicit server. It raided James O’Keefe and Project Veritas when Joe Biden’s daughter lost her diary. It eliminated investigation into Black Lives Matter and other black identity extremists because those pursuits annoyed the Democrats’ Congressional Black Caucus. It refuses even to utter the word “Antifa” while churches and pregnancy centers are fire-bombed. It continues to cover up for Hunter Biden’s corrupt dealings with enemy nations, along with his indulgence in criminal prostitution and drug abuse.
But the FBI has also served as the Democrats’ sword as well. It knowingly laundered the Russian collusion hoax, lying in order to secure FISA warrants. It ambushed the president’s sitting national security advisor in a nonsense perjury trap. The FBI hunts down January 6 protesters while dodging congressional inquiries about the role of federal agents in provoking the incident. The FBI ginned up a fake kidnapping plot in Michigan to instill fear of right-wing terrorism, manhandled the former president’s lawyer, and shackled one of his former high-level aides.
And it has now raided the former president’s home under a mere pretext, while the Democrats openly crow on cable news about using a political prosecution to prevent Trump from ever again being able to serve in office.
Other attempts to rein in the FBI short of its abolition have failed. The FBI shows nothing but contempt for those authorized to oversee it. It routinely ignores inspector general investigations. It fails to prosecute or punish those who overtly violate established policies. It refuses to answer legitimate questions from Republican committee members. It doesn’t even respond to congressional letters of inquiry. It punishes FBI whistleblowers and seeks to purge from its midst those agents who aren’t in lockstep with its new praetorian guard role.
Never gonna happen, of course, for all kinds of reasons, not the least of which can be inferred from what I said last night: “At long last, Real Americans must recognize that our FBI problem doesn’t begin and end with the FBI alone; what we have here is, in truth, a big government problem, encompassing the damnable Federal edifice entire.” Even Reagan couldn’t eliminate the Dept of Education way back when, an agency of acutely dubious Constitutional remit which was only two years old at the time, nothing like as securely dug into the FederalGovCo corpus as the FBI is today. All that being so, I still think it’s important that a case be made for killing it off nonetheless, if for nothing more useful than an intellectual exercise, what Heinlein used to call “skull sweat.” Certainly, Shideler has constructed an airtight one here.
A few bad apples update! Panty raid!!!
FBI agents scoured Melania Trump’s wardrobe and spent several hours combing through Donald Trump’s private office, breaking open his safe and rifling through drawers when they raided the former First Family’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida Monday morning.
Oh, I just bet they did at that. Wonder how many sets of Melania’s criminally-dangerous frilly unmentionables wound up taken into Bureau custody strictly for private sniffing-session purposes back at Quantico by these pud-pulling Fibbie scumsacks?
An eerily prescient piece from Joy Pullman.
The FBI And DOJ Criminalizing Opposition To The Regime Is How The Republic Ends
A two-tier justice system is not a justice system. It is a totalitarian system. Its purpose is not justice but population control.
On Thursday, Barack Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder decided it was the time to bring the subtext of the Jan. 6 show trials and related domestic security state activities into the open.
“My guess is that by the end of this process, you’re going to see indictments involving high-level people in the White House, you’re going to see indictments against people outside the White House who were advising them with regard to the attempt to steal the election, and I think ultimately you’re probably going to see the president, former president of the United States indicted as well,” Holder told SiriusXM host Joe Madison.
Holder noted that the U.S. Department of Justice he formerly headed is working with the illegally constituted Jan. 6 Commission towards this goal. We know these entities are also working with the FBI, whose head bit his thumb at congressional oversight repeatedly in a public hearing last week.
An indictment of former President Donald Trump would be a breathtakingly authoritarian turn. It would amount to the U.S. security state refusing to accept “no” from America’s voters yet again. An indictment would be an unelected and unaccountable federal agency overruling voters’ two-time rejection of impeachment through their elected representatives.
This is the core danger of the administrative state: Its now open propensity to go rogue. It is apparently hellbent now on turning the United States into a banana republic.
The Deep State’s muscular veto over Who Will Rule is being flexed right out in the open with its implacable, fanatical, systemic persecution of Trump both during his nefariously derailed White House tenure and back on Civvy Street.
Democrats called Donald Trump a fascist, authoritarian, and wannabe dictator for chants at his rallies of “Lock her up,” referring to his opponent Hillary Clinton. At the time, leftists pointed out that imprisoning, interrogating, investigating, and otherwise using government resources to harass and prosecute one’s political opponents was the mark of tyrannical regimes such as Vladimir Putin’s and Adolf Hitler. “Democracies don’t lock up political opponents,” the Washington Post editorial board told us in 2016.
Anybody foolhardy, naive, or gullible enough to still believe that Amerika v2.0 is a “democracy,” please find a thick, plush towel to dry yourself behind the ears, mmmkay? It’s the most bitter irony I know of: the easiest way a “democracy” can be subverted, weakened, and eventually brought crashing down with the barest minimum of bloody conflict is to blind itself into torpor and inaction as the erstwhile Loyal Opposition is busily transitioning into full-blown Enemies, Domestic™.
That is still true when the ones pushing the interrogations, investigations, entrapments into committing felonies, show trials in unusual venues with no cross-examination or due process, early morning home raids, excessive detainment, and asymmetrical punishments are Democrats.
Sorry, no. The very moment when those “political opponents” first begin “pushing the interrogations, &c” is when said Democracy MUST act vigorously in defense of its own continued existence, else it will surely be destroyed.
Rigid adherence to principles and ideals such as “Democracies don’t lock up political opponents” when you are under assault by revolutionaries who are cunning enough to weaponize those very principles for use in overwhelming and toppling your noble democracy is hapless idiocy of the purest ray serene.
The Demonrats have openly proclaimed their intention to supplant the limited central government envisioned and created by our Founders under their Constitution and replace it with an intrusive federal monolith possessed of unlimited power, inhibited by no shame, compassion, or decency, answerable to no outside authority or ombudsman. Our Founders were completely direct and plainspoken about what must be the response of a free people to such clearly predatory depredations. Their prescribed remedy assuredly does NOT mention meticulously maintaining strictest observance of the full rights and privileges for turncoats who are no longer due the privileges and courtesies they long ago squatted and shat upon.
Cross the line from legitimate dissent into outright sedition, as a majority of the Democrat Party incontrovertibly has done for years? Man up, own it, take your lumps without cavil or complaint, then. Don’t act as if the concepts you’ve denounced and the country you’ve betrayed owe you anything more nor less than a fair trial, followed by a first-class hanging.
Bitter Centurion ain’t sure about it, but I certainly am.
I read an article yesterday on Substack by the ‘2nd Smartest Guy in the World’ that got me thinking:
In the article, he is essentially saying that we should feel sympathy and show compassion towards those who took the clot shot because we need them on ‘our side’.
Y’know…I’m not sure I have it in me, to be totally honest.
The reason being is because of the sheer cruelty that a good many of the ‘vaxxed’ exhibited towards the people who chose not to subject themselves to the shot, not because they actually went and got the shot. I’m about as indifferent to that as I am to that same person taking a hit on a crystal meth pipe.
It was not more than eight months ago, just in Canada, I saw that a good number of the ‘fully vaccinated’ were more than okay with:
the state, and private businesses in accordance with the state, impeding the right of the unvaccinated to assemble and move freely in various establishments, and also in and out of the country.
the unvaccinated being denied health care services as doctor’s visits, dental work, and various surgeries.
grocery stores denying unvaccinated people the right to go into grocery stores to buy basic necessities, such as food.
the idea of the police and health establishment forcibly vaccinating people by way of assault.
the idea of the unvaccinated being arrested and forcibly relocated to camps or other such facilities where they would be segregated from the rest of society.
the Prime Minister of Canada going on television and asking whether the unvaccinated “should be tolerated” because they, in his words, “take up space”.
Indeed, there was not much empathy or compassion to be found among those who gleefully submitted themselves to the ‘clot shot’. Those who weren’t so obnoxiously leading their self-righteous charge against the ‘filthy unvaccinated’ chose, instead, to remain silent and kept their heads down rather than stand up against what they knew was wrong. I didn’t see a hell of a lot of it, anyway.
So now that it’s come to light that this…vaccine (which isn’t a vaccine) is not only completely useless in keeping people well (which it was clearly stated it was supposed to do), but is now lethal to people who have taken it, there’s quite a few people who now have ‘egg on their face’, metaphorically speaking.
I’m not sure I have a lot of sympathy or compassion to spare. The ONLY reason the narrative has shifted, we are no longer in the ‘State of Fear’ we were in eight months ago, and people’s attitudes are changing is because the truth of all of this has come out a lot quicker than it was anticipated by those who engineered this ‘scam-demic’. It is only due to their incompetence that everyone is learning the truth of the origins of COVID-19, the coordinated pandemic response measures of individual governments, and the true nature of the vaccines.
Had none of this come to light when it did, I wonder if I would not be sitting in front of a computer right now, typing this blog entry. I wonder if my children would not be playing in their yard, in the sun and fresh air, as my wife tends to her small garden. I wonder if we would have all been subject to arbitrary arrest and detention, sent off to some goddamn camp in some place that’s miles away from anywhere.
If that were the case, I think it’s probably a safe bet that nobody – least of all those who I’m told I should be feeling sympathy and compassion for – would have shown any sympathy and compassion for the unvaccinated whose rights were being relegated to nothing. I doubt they would have shown the courage needed to stand up and help them and try to stop this latest incarnation of man’s inhumanity to man.
We’ll never know how far this would have gone, but we can certainly say that the scam-demic didn’t stop in its tracks because those who dutifully got vaccinated and unquestioningly complied with the system suddenly grew a conscience. Far fucking from it, in fact.
The ‘2nd Smartest Guy in the World’ asserts we need them on ‘our side‘. Do we? Seems to me, if there was a time we needed anyone on ‘our side’, it was eight fuckin months ago when everyone was showing their true colours. Now? Why the fuck do we need them now? Why the fuck should I care that they’re full of ‘regret’ and are scared of dying because we, the unvaxxed, were right all along and they were wrong? If ever there was a time we needed those people to stand and be counted, it was when the ‘powers-that-be’ started acting like tyrants and bullies and brought in the goddamn mandates. That was when we truly needed them. It was at that time where they had their chance to prove that they had a pair of brass balls; they had the chance to be heroes, and they fucking blew it!
Agreed, right down the line. Having shown themselves to be the petty, craven, easily-manipulated dimestore dictators they so truly are, they can be grateful if a distinct lack of sympathy for their plight is the worst their betters choose to visit upon them. Fuck them all, every last one of them. With “friends” like those pusillanimous pissants, we’ll never want for enemies. Liberty-minded people won’t ever “need” such as they, any more than I need another hole in my fucking head. They’re despicable, that’s what. Let them all go die in a fire for all me.
Looks like I was only off by about a year, year and a half or so.
President Biden tested positive for COVID-19 Thursday morning, the White House said.
The president is experiencing a trio of mild symptoms, his doctor said in a letter.
Biden’s symptoms are a runny nose, occasional dry cough and fatigue, Dr. Kevin O’Connor, physician to the president, wrote in a letter.
Biden went to bed feeling fine Wednesday night but did not sleep well, Dr. Ashish Jha, White House COVID-19 response coordinator, told reporters.
The president has begun treatment with the drug Paxlovid, which is currently authorized for the treatment of “mild-to-moderate COVID-19.” The antiviral drug has been proven to curb the worst effects of the disease, showing positive results of direct viral testing for those at high risk of progressing to severe COVID-19, according to the FDA.
As you folks may or may not remember, after the DemonRats had stolen the election and fraudulently installed “Joe Biden” in the White House as “pResident,” I predicted it would be announced by no later than June 2021 or so that the mouldering, gibbering old fool had “died of Covid,” initiating a national paroxysm of “grief” that would be every bit as phony as “Joe Biden” himself had always been. Alas, it didn’t work out quite that way, at least as far as my anticipated timetable went. But hey, better late than never, right? More from the NY Post.
President Biden on Thursday tested positive for COVID-19 — one day after giving a gaffe-filled speech that spurred health concerns and less than a week after returning from meetings in Saudi Arabia with killer Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman.
Biden, 79, is the oldest-ever American president and his advanced age puts him at elevated risk of serious illness or death, though he has received four shots of Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine, reducing the risk, and is being treated with antiviral drug Paxlovid.
The president’s physician, Dr. Kevin O’Connor, said in a morning statement that Biden “is currently experiencing mild symptoms, mostly rhinorrhea (or ‘runny hose’) and fatigue, with an occasional dry cough, which started yesterday evening.”
Biden’s health was widely discussed on Wednesday when he shocked listeners by claiming during a speech in Massachusetts that he has cancer, using the present tense. The White House hastened to clarify that he was referring to skin cancer from before he took office. In the same speech, Biden referred to male Rep. Jake Auchincloss (D-Mass.) as “she” and said that the city of Glasgow is in England, before correcting himself to say Scotland.
Sheesh. Covid, cancer, asthma, whatever. Sick or unsick, he’s still hardly what people usually think of when they use the word “alive.”
Update! The bottom line.
There’s a reason that all leftist policy is about transferring responsibility from individuals to groups.
Biden may be the least popular president in history—but that’s good for Democrats. Just as it’s good that he thinks he has cancer (or asthma or whatever). If the Democrats can force him not to run for a second term, they can make him the scapegoat for all the suffering wrought intentionally by the leftist agenda. It gives them a clean slate. As long as America is willing to buy it.
I don’t mean, of course, that America might be willing to buy into wrapping this trainwreck around Biden’s neck. They have known from the start, even Biden’s voters have known, that he was never really in charge. They knew that other people were standing in the shadows and pulling the strings. Some Democrats voted for a third term of Barack Obama. Some Democrats voted for a first term of Obama consigliere Susan Rice, et al. But no one, or almost no one, really voted for Biden, who, remember, largely ran his campaign from his basement.
Americans have to be willing to buy into the theoretical possibility that Democrats could win the next election. They know it’s vanishingly unlikely that a majority of the voters in the country would choose the Democrats. It’s even less likely now than it was in 2020. But the question from Democrats’ perspective is not whether they can win, but whether America will accept being told that Democrats have won.
When America wakes up again, after going to sleep election night with Republicans in the lead across the nation, and they’re presented with another “red mirage”—with the result of millions and millions of votes magically appearing at 4 o’clock in the morning in all the most crucial districts—will they accept it? Will they be willing to suspend disbelief, as voters in New York City and Chicago and San Francisco already do, when they are told that despite the disastrous tenure of the Democrats in office, the voters have decided to extend that tenure?
The Democrats can’t hope to win. They can only hope that getting rid of Biden will make a win seem plausible. They can only hope that, when they cheat, Americans will let them get away with it rather than coming after them with pitchforks.
Prognosis: negative. Or so we must hope; there’s a clock ticking here, and time for retrieving whatever we possibly can from the ashes of America That Was grows short. If all it takes to put things right is pitchforks, I’d say the rotten bastards are getting off way light.
Rebound update! About this Paxlovid substance.
Fauci Says He Had Paxlovid Rebound, Worse Symptoms
June 30, 2022 – Anthony Fauci, MD, the chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden, said Tuesday that he went through a “Paxlovid rebound” that can occur after taking the antiviral to recover from COVID-19.
The symptoms that he had after he completed the treatment were more severe than those he had at first from the coronavirus, he said.
“After I finished the 5 days of Paxlovid, I reverted to negative on an antigen test for 3 days in a row,” Fauci said during Foreign Policy’s Global Health Forum event.
“And then on the fourth day, just to be absolutely certain, I tested myself again,” he said. “I reverted back to positive.”
Fauci then began a second course of Paxlovid when symptoms returned, which were “much worse than the first go-around,” he said. During Tuesday’s event, he said he was feeling “reasonably good.”
Aww, that’s a shame. Hate to hear it, I truly do. Bill would like a word about all this.
Embroidering this tinfoil hat a bit further:
If FJB were to succumb to Covid leading into the last part of this election season, it would solve more than a few problems for the Democrats. First, it would short-circuit all the problems likely to arise from further reveals on how thoroughly the Ukrainian oligarchs had corrupted the White House. (Old news. Besides, Joe, he daid.)
Second, it would serve to demonstrate that (whatever variant of covid they would say got him) was still deadly, and would justify heavier restrictions and measures – like lockdowns (which would crater the cost of oil, just as they did the first time around) and maybe even mandated mail-in ballots (which was how the election was fraudulently stolen from DJT, and both GOP candidates for Senator in Georgia).
Finally, President Kamala Harris. And…Vice President Michelle Obama?
Of course, this would all have to be accomplished before the election itself…
A Harris/Obama regime? Oof. The one thing we know for absolutely, positively certain, though, is that they’ll do whatever they damned well please, dare Real Americans to do one damned thing about it, and laugh in our damned faces when we don’t.
From my regular Libs of Tik Tok email:
ANTIFA summer camp for 10-year-olds being held in Portland
If the Drag Queen Story Hours and Critical Race Theory aren’t enough for your little progressive tike, you can now send your child to ANTIFA summer camp!
Budding Roses, an anarchist organization in Portland, will hold a social justice camp for children in 4th to 8th grade. The organization brags about the children who attend their free camp later participating in protests and encourages them to be anti-fascist “social justice activists.”
The curriculum provided by Budding Roses includes a plethora of ANTIFA-style protest documents including “Tear Gas for Portlanders” which teaches campers on what to do if they come in contact with tear gas and to donate to bail funds to help the cause.
Children who attend the ANTIFA summer camp will be taught chants about “killer cops” and the “rapist government” as reported by Daily Citizen.
They definitely got some balls on ’em, we gotta give ’em that much. But as I’ve said so many times, and will go right on saying: there should never, EVER be another pAntiFa shindig—in any American city, be it great or small—where at least one of these worthless oxygen thieves isn’t left lying on the ground bleeding out, courtesy of a scoped, big-bore rifle situated a good, safe distance away from the main event. Suppressors can be considered optional, although they DO make it extremely difficult to place the direction from which the shots are coming from.
At LEAST one. Far as I’m concerned, no riot should truly be considered complete until then.
Correct me if I’m wrong here, but wouldn’t this be, like, an actual insurrection?
The Morton’s madness isn’t the only recent case of protests going too far. Two weeks ago in Arizona, protesters tried to invade the state capital, according to the Arizona Department of Public Safety. “As groups realized the state legislature was in session, they attempted to breach the doors of the Arizona Senate and force their way into the building.”
Police had to use tear gas to get the riot under control — but not before “significant criminal damage impacted” a number of memorials and buildings. Where are the Democrats condemning this insurrection?
Yeah, I wouldn’t be holding my breath waiting for it if I were you. Is there more, you ask? Hey, these are shitlibs we’re talking about here; of COURSE there is.
Lefties now think they can do whatever they want when they’re angry about an issue. It’s not just Kavanaugh and it’s not just abortion.
On the July 4, environmentalists blocked the DC Beltway. A video showed one motorist begging them to open a lane. “One lane, I am asking, one lane,” he said, explaining he was on parole and would go back to jail if he was late for work. The protesters couldn’t have cared less. After the agitated man got physical with the road-blockers, he was arrested.
A few weeks ago, a group of environment nutjobs slashed tires on 40 SUVs in New York City.
Funny, innit, how this sort of thing never seems to get reported on the 6 o’clock news, or anywhere else.
These protesters don’t care about the rest of us, but only their own emotions. They’re mad, so we have to deal with them disrupting our lives.
These babies have so much power and control over the rest of us because Democrats cater to this with soft language and even frequent defense of these unacceptable protests.
If those targeting a Supreme Court justice, or constantly stopping traffic to get us to pay attention to their concerns, were on the right, every Republican politician in the country would be asked about it ad nauseam. It’s long past the time that Democrats get the same treatment.
“The same treatment” is the very LEAST they should get—that, and a whole hell of a lot worse besides. The miserable curs need to be made to hurt—physically, severely. It’s the only way to put a stop to this arrant horseshit.
“Who controls the past controls the future,” writes George Orwell in 1984. “Who controls the present controls the past.” Were he with us today, Orwell would be getting tired of being right all the time, but he has just been proven right again: Thomas Jefferson’s famed mansion Monticello has been turned into a fount of woke propaganda that denigrates Jefferson and treats unsuspecting visitors to an over-the-top orgy of victimhood and white guilt regarding slavery. The Left hates America and wants very much for you to hate it, too.
Jeffrey Tucker of the libertarian Brownstone Institute said Saturday that “the whole thing has the feel of propaganda and manipulation. People on my tour seemed sad and demoralized.” That’s exactly the goal, Mr. Tucker: make Americans sad and demoralized and vulnerable to those who would have them believe that this nation has been evil from the beginning and is in drastic need of a thorough overhauling of its political system and society in general. Tucker added that when he was at Monticello, his guide was “surly and dismissive” of Jefferson’s remarkable achievements.
Monticello is no longer about Mr. Jefferson’s achievements. According to the New York Post, Monticello’s “new emphasis is the culmination of a 10-year effort to balance the historical record, officials of the Thomas Jefferson Foundation, the nonprofit that owns the estate, have said.” “Balance the historical record”: that’s a calculated and clever way of saying “Do everything we can to denigrate Thomas Jefferson and make those who admire him enough to visit his home come out hating him.”
Accordingly, the Post reports, “visitors complain that employees go out of their way to belittle Jefferson and his life.” One visitor wrote on Facebook that “the tour guides play ‘besmirchment derby,’ never missing a chance to defame this brilliant, complex man.” Another wrote: “Always enjoyed visiting Monticello in the past. The workers are super friendly and helpful. Unfortunately on this guided tour, we were lectured more on slaves and Sally Hemmings than the man himself. Half of the comments on Jefferson were critical. I expected for, the price, to have enjoyed it more. Even my 11 yr old daughter noticed the bias. We all are aware of the tragedy of slavery during the early part of this country’s history. Please center your presentations on the man and his accomplishments rather than promoting guilt.” Not a chance.
A third visitor said: “Visited a few years ago and had a great experience and got to learn a lot about Thomas Jefferson. This time every video slandered his name and the entire focus was on his mistress. Very disappointing and shocking to see how they are trying to rewrite history to make it seem like the founding fathers were terrible immoral creatures that happened to start a country.” Ah yes, now you’re getting the idea.
At this point, Monticello might as well be renamed Guilt Plantation. The Post noted that even the ticket booth to the place gets into the act: it’s “decorated with a contemporary painting of Jefferson’s weeping slaves.” In Jefferson’s music room, “a grim modern painting of a faceless figure with a matte black head now looms over the room, positioned so that it directly confronts visitors as they enter the mansion.” This masterpiece, according to Monticello guide Susan Woodward, was “commissioned in honor of Juneteenth” and was intended to be “quite provocative.” A card next to this painting explains that its “hands and face of featureless tar” are meant to signify “the faceless lives of all who served in bondage, witnessing but never recognized.”
I’m sure you’ll all be every bit as shocked as I was to learn who’s behind this vile desecration.
Not surprisingly, “The Thomas Jefferson Foundation is run by a roster of big-money Dem donors and former Democratic officials.” Monticello’s descent “has largely been funded by left-leaning philanthropist David M. Rubenstein, who donated $20 million toward that effort in 2015. Rubenstein is “on the boards of the globalist World Economic Forum, China’s Tsinghua University, and the Council on Foreign Relations, among others.” Now it’s beginning to become clear why all this is happening.
The endgame is not just to make Americans despise Thomas Jefferson, but to make the average American ashamed of being American. That’s what this has been about from first to last.
But of course. It’s who they are. It’s what they do. The bottom line:
Jefferson is just the sort of man whom the fascist thugs of Antifa, busy smearing ACAB on the sides of buildings and hurling obscenities at police in pursuit of their vision of socialist utopia, and their moneyed backers would despise and fear. They want a docile American populace, frightened into submission to their authoritarian vision. The example of Thomas Jefferson could inspire Americans instead to pledge their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to preserve our hard-won freedoms. Can’t have that. Jefferson’s name must be made anathema to Americans.
The scumsuckers will never get it done—not here, they won’t. Speaking strictly for myself and nobody else, I’ll see every last man Jack of them in Hell first.
Being what they are, doing what they do.
The Administrative State Moves To Show Who’s Boss On Energy Policy
Last Thursday, June 30, the Supreme Court issued its decision in West Virginia v. EPA, holding that, absent a further explicit statute from the Congress, the EPA did not have the authority to orchestrate its planned fundamental restructuring of the electric power generation sector of the economy. More generally, the Supreme Court stated that in cases involving “major questions,” including regulations that affect large portions of the economy, the government must demonstrate “clear congressional authorization” to support a sweeping effort to regulate.
Do you think that such a Supreme Court decision might cause the various regulatory bureaucracies to slow down and reconsider a little before plowing ahead with other dubious plans for fundamental economic restructurings? That’s not how these bureaucracies work. And such is most particularly the case with regard to regulators of the energy sector, sometimes known as “climate change” arena, where the bureaucrats are burning with a righteous religious fervor that they believe entitles them to cast the evil sinners into the fires of hell.
And thus, contemporaneous with the Supreme Court’s decision, several agencies promptly doubled down on efforts to strangle the oil and gas industries with regulatory restrictions, essentially daring the courts or anyone else to stop them. Thousands of pages of statutes give them thousands of arguments to claim they have the “clear congressional authorization,” any one of which arguments might stick. They are now out to show who’s boss.
EPA Administrator Michael Regan wasted no time in getting a statement out on the afternoon of June 30. Excerpt:
[W]e are committed to using the full scope of EPA’s authorities to protect communities and reduce the pollution that is driving climate change…EPA will move forward with lawfully setting and implementing environmental standards that meet our obligation to protect all people and all communities from environmental harm.
In other words, we will just have to find other ways to implement the restrictions that we want to implement.
Oh, I can think of at least one really good one right offhand, although things might get a little messy, so to speak, before all’s said and done. Alas, the EPA is hardly alone in their lawless defiance of the Supreme Court. That’s life under a power-drunk government gone rogue, believing itself to be above all sanction, restriction, or oversight.
One can only stand back in slack-jawed wonder at the sheer, unmitigated gall of the EPA’s brandishing of the word “lawfully” up there, waving it in our faces like a billy-club even as they’re so arrogantly disregarding its meaning. All under the holy “climate change” rubric, natch; honestly, is there ANYTHING it can’t do at this point?
Via BRM, who adds:
That’s typical of bureaucrats, of course. Don’t like a Supreme Court ruling? Defy it. Circumvent it with every paper-shuffling, buck-passing trick at your disposal. Deny, delay, obfuscate. Ignore complaints. It’s not just Democrat administrations that do it, either. The entrenched bureaucracy that implements (?) the decisions of every administration (the so-called “Deep State”) plus the political appointees of every President have always sought ways to do what they want to do, rather than what they should do or what the law says they must do. Lincoln’s abrogation of the right of habeas corpus comes to mind, to cite just one example.
I don’t know what can be done about this. The courts, up to and including the Supreme Court, can issue rulings and injunctions for all they’re worth; but if the powers that be are determined to ignore or circumvent them, there’s no immediate remedy for that. The rule of law is already honored more in the breach than in the observance in many ways in these formerly United States. Nowadays, it all too often depends on one’s politics to determine whether or not the law will operate in one’s favor.
Just don’t expect the Biden administration to be bound by the rule of law, or the decision of courts of law, from the lowest to the highest. It’s partisan in the extreme, and ruthless in its determination to do whatever it wants to achieve its objectives. It won’t be stopped by laws or lawsuits. It’ll need stronger measures than mere words.
Indeed it will. As the filthy bastards go from bad to worse to worse still, they make those “stronger measures” look less dreadful and more and more appealing.

Divemedic knows the score as well as you do.
The reason for this, at least to me, is completely obvious. They WANT some looney to assassinate one or more of them. Such an act would allow Biden to name their replacement. This is nothing more than a group of people who want to commit murder but don’t have the balls to do it themselves. They know that there are people in their movement whose screws are loose, and are hoping that they can spur them into action by broadcasting the location of their desired targets.
I am willing to be that there will be a serious assassination attempt on a SCOTUS justice before the end of the year, with more copycats, and I would give you a 50% chance that at least one of those attempts will be successful before the 2024 election.
I must confess, I’m kinda surprised one of these filthy scum hasn’t had a go at offing the great Clarence Thomas long before now. Another of these depraved groups, Now or Never, boasts that “conventional tactics are not enough” and that they feel it’s “time to escalate.” For my money, I can only agree with them: it’s time, and past time, for Real Americans to “escalate” right on up to killing these baglappers in job lots.
Update! Ted Cruz lets ‘er rip, most righteously.
US. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said attacks against Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and his wife after the court overturned Roe v Wade are “despicable.”
“The racist hatred directed at Justice Thomas and his family is despicable,” Cruz said. “Absolutely vile.”
The senator made the comment in response to a photo published on social media of a protestor’s sign reading, “Ginny Thomas is a 21st cent. slave owner,” referring to Thomas’ white wife.
Cruz, a former Supreme Court clerk, warned in May that President Joe Biden’s refusal to condemn activists’ targeting of justices’ homes was “literally threatening the lives of these justices.”
Since then, some have called for Thomas to be assassinated and threats and disparaging remarks continue to be made about him.
A female protester recently called Thomas a “swine” and “illegitimate pig.”
And a politician, media personality and actor have called him “an Uncle Tom,” conservative commentator and former Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder noted. He told Fox News LA that using the racial slur is “outrageous. You can disagree with somebody without making a racial slur like that. It’s unfair what he’s been called.”
Well said, Ted, and good on ya for having the stones to come to our greatest Justice’s defense this way.
The J6 Inquisition and its scores of innocent victims must not go unavenged.
Americans are witnessing something unprecedented: a congressional committee handpicked by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi working seamlessly with a highly partisan Justice Department to criminalize political dissent. Contrary to the solemn insistence of known liars like Schiff and Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), none of it has anything to do with the four-hour disturbance on Capitol Hill more than 18 months ago but everything to do with dragging America into banana republic-style territory complete with political prisoners, kangaroo courts, secret police, forced confessions, and nonstop propaganda under the guise of “news.”
As this Democratic Party crusade has unfolded over the past year and a half, most Republican officials have been silent as the regime flagrantly flouts the Constitution and the boundaries of decency and tradition. Some leaders, most notably Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), have embraced the description of January 6 as an “insurrection” and blame Trump for what happened that day.
While congressional Republicans bury their heads in the Democrats’ latest pit of political quicksand, their voters are not as gullible. According to a report this week by Axios, a GOP-led House is planning to retaliate for the conduct of the January 6 selection committee by launching an investigation into the committee itself—not necessarily because top Republicans have the stomach for the fight but because they are getting an earful from their constituents. “The base is out for blood on subpoenas,” tied to investigations of January 6, Hunter Biden, the coronavirus response, and the Afghanistan withdrawal, a House Republican aide told Axios.
One would be hard pressed to find McCarthy criticizing the FBI even after agents arrested Trump trade advisor Peter Navarro at Reagan National Airport and placed him leg shackles on a contempt of Congress charge: ditto for FBI harassment of former Justice Department official Jeffrey Clark and Trump campaign lawyer John Eastman. Yet McCarthy was quick to call for Rep. Jeff Fortenberry (R-Neb.) to resign after a California jury found him guilty of lying to federal investigators in a clear case of FBI entrapment. (Fortenberry is appealing the verdict.)
Some members of McCarthy’s caucus, thankfully, are taking a more aggressive approach. Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) and a few others are demanding justice for the January 6 detainees and condemning D.C. correctional officials for harsh treatment of Trump supporters in custody. Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.), who lost his Republican primary last week, asked Capitol Police and Pelosi’s office to preserve all documents pertaining to January 6, accusing Pelosi of obstructing “Republican access to House records relating to the security preparedness of the Capitol complex.”
But sternly worded letters and empty promises won’t do the trick this time around; rank-and-file Republicans won’t be fooled again. After a much-hyped Durham probe ends with a whimper, House Democrats ratchet up their public pursuit of Trump associates, and the Justice Department continues to arrest Capitol trespassers and seek lengthy jail sentences for minor offenses, the base’s appetite for political blood will only increase. GOP leaders will need a cutthroat approach if they retake power next year.
I wouldn’t be holding my breath waiting on it, Jules. One thing we can say about the Vichy GOPe wing of the Uniparty: once they’ve been bought, they stay bought. Which means that if Real Americans truly want to see justice done for this monstrous travesty, they’re gonna have to stand up on their hind legs and do it themselves.
Tucker rips Benedict Biden a new one.
Tucker Carlson: Biden should be impeached for sending our natural assets to our enemy China
So, it’s hard to hear anything Joe Biden says because it’s hard for him to say anything, but if you listen carefully or read a transcript, you will learn what he just said is we’re releasing a million barrels per day for a total of more than 180 million barrels from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, which is held in caverns in a couple of states. How much is that? It’s a staggering figure.
So, let’s put it in context. The reserve can hold more than 700 million barrels total, but it didn’t have that because Congress, by the way, as you haven’t been paying attention, has been selling off our Strategic Petroleum Reserve to pay off debt. So, by the time Joe Biden arrived, there was far less than that. There was about 568 million barrels of oil in the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Now, no president in American history has ordered a drawdown this large.
In 1991, the beginning of Operation Desert Storm, which was an actual war with real American soldiers involved, the U.S. government released 17 million barrels of oil as a way of assuring a stable supply of global crude. The U.S. released just 20 million barrels after Hurricane Katrina destroyed parts of the Gulf Coast where so many refineries are. But now we’re releasing many times that figure from the reserve all to protect the Democratic Party from getting what it deserves in the midterm elections in November and as a result of that unbelievably reckless, in fact criminal decision, our oil reserves now at their lowest level in nearly 40 years, and they are dropping fast. None of this needed to happen. There was no reason to tap our Strategic Petroleum Reserve when we could produce the energy here and were in fact producing it until Joe Biden took office.
But at the same time, you have to be honest. Principles of supply and demand would suggest that this would work in the short term. Releasing all this oil should have lowered gas prices until the reserve ran out, which it will. You inject more petroleum into the market and prices for gas should drop, but here’s the amazing thing. That’s not happening. Since Joe Biden started releasing all this oil from our reserves, which he does not own, you do, we do, what has happened to gas prices? They haven’t dropped. They’ve kept going up. Huh? In mid-June, the price of both regular unleaded and diesel critically hit all-time highs, well over five bucks a gallon nationally. How could this be? It really was a mystery. It violated the most basic rules of economics, but now, thanks to a new report in Reuters, we know why.
It turns out the oil being released isn’t for us. It’s going to India and China. According to Reuters, and we’re quoting, “more than 5 million barrels of oil that were part of a historic U.S. emergency reserve released to lower domestic fuel prices were exported to Europe and Asia last month.” The piece continues “cargo of SPR, crude (oil from our reserves) we’re also headed to the Netherlands into a Reliance refinery in India, an industry source said. A third cargo (buckle your seatbelt) headed to China.” To China!
So, as gas prices set records in this country, as American citizens who were born here and vote and pay taxes cannot afford to fuel their own cars, the Biden administration is selling off our emergency oil reserves to China. That’s not an indictable offense? It’s certainly an impeachable one and they should impeach him for that.
Impeach him, hell. With the attempt to save his saggy, decrepit hide politically by selling American strategic oil reserves to China, then lying to the American people about why he did it, Joe Biden has given aid and comfort to the enemy—a clear and indisputable act of high treason as the crime is explicitly defined in the US Constitution. Sorry, Tucker, but impeachment is nowhere near harsh enough for this corrupt, self-serving traitor. Joe Biden must, and of right ought to be, hanged by the neck until he is dead, the fitting and proper punishment for such a heinous crime.
Yes, yes, I am aware that there isn’t a snowball’s chance in Hell of this happening; as we all already know too well, Biden will face no just reckoning whatsoever for his treason, not of any sort or severity. But that’s equally true of impeachment, which is no more likely than executing the repulsive scoundrel is. So as long as we’re just spinning ridiculous fantasies here, why not go balls to the wall with it? Hang Joe Biden treason, I say, and right straight to Hell with the rotten cocksucker.
Oh, and just in case you thought this wasn’t disgusting enough for ya yet, there’s another emetic twist.
I wish I could honestly say I found it shocking in the least that a brazen act of treason wouldn’t be quite sleazy enough to suit the egomania of a career grifter like Traitor Joe Biden. No, he felt he just had to class things up even more by tacking on some of the tawdry grift he’s been notorious for his whole life, too.
What a guy, eh?
Give the dirty son of a bitch one thing, though: nobody has ever considered Joe Biden to be an outstanding or superlative example of…well, of anything at all, really. Even in the Vice and Corruption category, he wasn’t ever going to bring home any awards. The stupid, fumbling stumblebum was strictly a mediocrity, nothing particularly notable or special about the oxygen thief. But by compounding high treason with the Biden Crime Family’s trademark grubby, bargain-basement peculation, Traitor Joe has raised the bar on cheap graft and embezzlement higher than its ever been before, against all previous expectations. May he and every one of his repellent clan be long remembered for their patriarch’s feat.
