GIVE TIL IT HURTS!

Another crash ‘n’ burn

You may have noted pRetend “pResident” Pedo Joe’s mangling of Thomas Jefferson’s famed “Tree of Liberty” quote in this post from last night. Or maybe you didn’t, I dunno. But either way, it inspired me to try my hand at making a meme out of it—which didn’t turn out as well as I would’ve hoped, thanks to my complete lack of any real GIMP-fu.

In fact, it was such a struggle and took so long to produce even the sub-par result below that I very nearly went into my daughter’s room to do the thing on the now-retired iMac, which still has a working copy of P-shop on it from my days working for the magazines (the new-to-me iMac won’t run any Adobe products at all thanks to some legacy 32-bit code tucked away in ‘em somewheres, a fact that still astounds me no end).

Understand: GIMP is good software, don’t get me wrong, and Lord knows the price (free) is right. But the learning curve for someone that’s been using P-Shop and Illy since, oh, about 1998 or so has turned out to be steep indeed. The nomenclature describing various tools and their functions is very different, and some things—like, say, the “Stroke” option, among others—just aren’t there at all; they don’t exist in GIMP, near as I’ve been able to determine. Others, such as “Drop Shadow,” “Bevel and Emboss,” “Find Edges,” and various text effects work in quite unexpected ways.

So y’all will just have to cut me some slack with this piss-poor meme, if you can find it in your hearts to do so. I’ve definitely come a long way from where I was when I first tried GIMP out, but I still have a long, long way to go with it yet. On the other hand, if I was the kind of guy who could pass up a chance this good to poke fun at senile Grampy Gropey just because my GIMP skills fall far, far short of the ideal, then hey, you probably wouldn’t be reading this damned blog in the first place, now wouldja?

TJefferBiden web

A sleazy, two-bit con artist like Bribem really ought to keep the immortal Jefferson’s words out of his lying mouth anyhow. Funny, don’tchathink, how he left the word “tyrants” out, ain’t it?

Aww, my heart bleeds for the poor fellows.

Part 4: What’s Jail Like for Two Accused Child Rapists?

This is Part 4 of a four-part investigative series.

Part 1 laid out the horrifying facts of the child-prostitution case, Part 2 explored the LGBTQ pedophile ring’s reach, and Part 3 shined a spotlight on the state’s failure to protect the two little boys from suffering through serial sexual abuse allegedly committed by their gay activist fathers, who became their adoptive parents thanks to Georgia’s courts and child-welfare system.

Today’s fourth and final piece details what life is like in jail for these two alleged child rapists each facing over nine life sentences.

An out-of-county transfer placed Zachary “Zack” Jacoby Zulock in Barrow County Detention Center’s “maximum” security unit “due to the nature of the charges.” Zachary appears to be experiencing what’s colloquially called “jail justice,” part of an honor code amongst inmates and a brand of justice directed at offenders who would harm children in any way: child murderers, rapists, and molesters, a.k.a. “ChoMos.” In terms of the lock-up’s pecking order, they’re the lowest rung on the hierarchical ladder.

The other scumsucker doesn’t seem to be having it nearly as tough in stir (yet), which is a crying shame, and reflects quite poorly on his fellow Greybar Hotel residents; hopefully, they’ll get with the program and redeem themselves soon. Then: a sock full of 3/4-inch nuts and bolts, and it’s BLANKET PARTIES FOR ALL!!!

Why we call it Once-Great Britain

So very much wrong here it’s tough to know where to even start.

Britain’s top food watchdog recently warned that bringing cake to the office is comparable to subjecting coworkers to second-hand cigarette smoke.

So-called “second-hand smoke,” like so much else these days, is the bunk.

Professor Susan Jebb, chair of the UK’s Food Standards Agency, told The Times Health commission, “We all like to think we’re rational, intelligent, educated people who make informed choices the whole time and we undervalue the impact of the environment,” adding that “If nobody brought in cakes into the office, I would not eat cakes in the day, but because people do bring cakes in, I eat them. Now, OK, I have made a choice, but people were making a choice to go into a smoky pub.”

Yeah, thanks be to God that you took care of that whole “making a choice” problem for good, eh?

“With smoking, after a very long time, we have got to a place where we understand that individuals have to make some effort but that we can make their efforts more successful by having a supportive environment,” Jebb argued. “But we still don’t feel like that about food.”

Oh, so THAT’s what we’re calling “authoritarian meddling” now, I gather.

Well, maybe that’s because food in the office only affects the individuals who eat it — unlike second-hand smoke, which is inhaled by everyone in close proximity to the smoker.

Sorry, but again: no.

Jebb went on to say that junk food ads are “undermining people’s free will,” yet claimed that restrictions are “not about the nanny state.”

Oh my NO, perish the thought. Sheesh.

These are the same people who are trying to make us eat crickets and believe that cauliflower tastes like rice. And the same people who told us to eat margarine for our health before reversing course and saying it will kill us, and now claiming that it’s good for us again.

And they have the exact same right to do so now as they did then: none whatsoever. Which is the REAL point at issue, not whether they’ve ever gotten a damned thing right, since ever. Or it ought to be, anyhow.

But yeah, you Limeys go ahead and forego that cake, it’s bad stuff. Plus, it’s difficult to eat with those bendy, non-scary plastic knives and forks your NotANanny State has forcibly relegated you chumps to.

A Republic, if you can keep it

It’s beginning to be quite dispiriting, the way so many of these stories seem to be coming out of Texas nowadays.

Kyle Rittenhouse Fires Back at ‘Woke Crowd’ after Snub: ‘Disappointing to See That Places Continue to Censor Me’

Constitutional rights advocate Kyle Rittenhouse has fired back after his event was canceled because his “values” conflict with those of the “woke crowd.”

A brewery in Texas canceled an event featuring Rittenhouse because the venue claimed the event doesn’t reflect its values.

Southern Star Brewing Company in Conroe, Texas, canceled the “Rally Against Censorship” featuring Rittenhouse on January 26.

The brewery said: “Southern star brewery is an apolitical organization.

“But we feel that this event doesn’t reflect our own values and we could not in good faith continue to rent our space for the event on 1/26.

“We don’t do rallies, we make beer for people who like beer.”

Uh huh. So, “apolitical,” then…except when you aren’t.

Rittenhouse fired back: “It’s really disappointing to see that places continue to censor me and not allow my voice and many other voices to be heard because they bend to the woke crowd.

Rittenhouse had another big, fat grenade to lob at the brewery Wokesters, who after all had booked the damned event in the first place, belying their anguished wails of being “apolitical.” And lob it he did, bless his stout young heart.


You keep right on a-rockin’, Kyle. Here’s hoping he sues the rotten bastards right into penury for breach of contract without adequate notice, and winds up owning their precious little brewery outright—lock, stock, and, ummm, barrels.

Screw Woke, and all who sail in her.

Update! Since I usually don’t proofread my posts until after they’re up live and in color on the page—not necessarily slackness on my part, everything just looks different to me on the actual site than it does in the WP editor—it wasn’t until just now that I noticed that part of this one had somehow been automagickally expurgated in transit from hither to yon by WP.

It was only a paragraph, but I still thought it important enough for losing it to bother me a little. Luckily, the missing part was retrievable from an earlier saved draft, so I went a-digging and got it back. Here t’is, in blockquote format so as to distinguish it from the rest of this update.

The operative phrases here are “Constitutional rights advocate Kyle Rittenhouse”; “Rally Against Censorship”; and “this event doesn’t reflect our own values.” Which, I’m perfectly sure it doesn’t. After all, shitlibs are steadfastly, unequivocally opposed to the US Constitution and the rights enumerated therein, and are all FOR censorship. Freedom of speech and individual liberty both being anathema to such as they, the “apolitical” Wokester brewery’s sudden attack of “conscience” should therefore come as a surprise to precisely nobody.

Apologies for the screwup, folks.

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?

SHOCKER!

Annnnd once again, it’s Muslims.

Man Who Stabbed Two Cops in Times Square Left Chilling Manifesto
19-year-old Trevor Bickford stabbed two cops with a machete in Times Square on New Year’s Eve, and authorities are scratching their heads and wondering why. According to the UK’s Daily Mail, “an investigation was underway to pinpoint a motive for the attack.” That investigation, however, may be more the result of officials not wanting to recognize Bickford’s obvious motive, rather than a matter of his real intentions being unclear. Bickford himself left behind a “manifesto” in which he made his perspective and intentions quite clear. But since neither he nor his attack fit the establishment media/Biden regime narrative about the “white supremacist” terror threat, they’re unlikely to get much attention.

The New York Post reported Sunday that when he was arrested after the stabbings, Bickford had a handwritten note in his backpack, asking his family to “please repent to Allah and accept Islam.” The backpack also contained a “collection of religious material” that was unlikely to have been gospel tracts. Bickford wrote: “To my family — specifically, mother — I’m sorry for not having been a good enough son.” But then he gets down to brass tacks: “I fear greatly that you will not repent to Allah. And therefore I hold hope in my heart that a piece of you believes so that you may be taken out to [sic] the hellfire.”

Bickford addressed the same hope to his brother: “To Travis. Of anyone I’ve known who I have felt is closest to faith — it’s you. Of anyone I’ve ever wanted to accept Islam with me — it’s you. Please repent to Allah and accept Islam. I fear for you.” To his other brother, who is reportedly in the U.S. Marine Corps, Bickford wrote: “To Devon, there was a time when we were close, but that time has passed. You have joined the ranks of my enemy. And for that I can give you no kind words – return to Allah.”

The New York Post also noted that Bickford wanted to attack “a uniformed officer” or “someone with a gun,” as he believed such people to be an “enemy of the state.” Which state? The New York Post, as willfully ignorant as the rest of the establishment media, shows no curiosity about this question. But clearly, Trevor Bickford, after he converted to Islam, was no stalwart American patriot. He wanted to target a uniformed officer as an enemy of the Islamic state. He had no kind words for his brother Devon because Devon had joined “the ranks of my enemy,” that is, the U.S. military.

WELL. I sure didn’t see that coming. Too-obvious alternate headline: FBI remains BAFFLED as to possible motive behind latest Moslem terror attack.

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.

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.

Romney rubs it in

A pluperfect example of GOPe “thinking.”

Mitt Romney Tries to Explain the Omnibus Vote, and It’ll Leave You Punching Walls

Far better to punch Romney, if you ask me. Certainly more productive, and easier on the hands too.

On Thursday, 18 Republican senators joined hands with Democrats to pass yet another massive Omnibus spending bill. This time, it cost US taxpayers $1.7 trillion, setting spending baselines that will now be used for the next two years via continuing resolutions. All of this happened mere weeks before the GOP was set to take over the House of Representatives, meaning that the power of the purse that was just won has been conceded without anything resembling a fight.

Luckily, we have Sen. Mitt Romney around to explain that this wasn’t actually a betrayal of what was promised during the last election. In fact, you are just too stupid to realize that this is actually a good thing.

Romney begins by saying that he’s “convinced that this will cost less money than if we kick the can down the road until next year.”

So let’s just kick the can down the road this year instead. Hey, makes perfect sense, I guess, for certain values of the word “sense.”

He then cites the fact that the House GOP hasn’t selected a speaker yet to bolster his argument, saying that he’s “not sure they’re going to be able to take on the budget for this as well as the next year.”

In other words, you absolute rubes who voted for Republicans during the last mid-terms can’t be trusted to have your votes actually mean anything. Instead, you must be protected from yourself by having GOP Senators nuke the power of the purse before Republicans even take control. And you should be thankful that Romney and the rest did that for you.

The Utah senator then goes on to point out that even if House Republicans put together a budget, Democrats wouldn’t vote for it. Well, yes Mitt, we know. We are all well aware that Democrats actually keep their promises and hold the line. Why can’t the GOP do the same thing? Why can’t they lead and dictate instead of constantly reacting and bending the knee?

Oh, they can, right enough. Trouble is, they don’t want to. They know their prescribed role in this putrid little charade, and are content to stick with it.

As if all that wasn’t bad enough, Romney then does what establishment Republicans always do, which is to suggest that military spending justifies all manner of domestic insanity. That’d be the same military currently instituting a preferred pronouns policy and that hasn’t won a war since the early ’90s. To end the video, he then lists out all the pork he’s bringing home to Utah.

To sum it up, the Republican Party deserves to lose, and parties that deserve to lose rarely win. There is no point in winning elections if the results are the same. The GOP had a chance to stand up here and at least demand the inclusion of funds to secure the border, and they couldn’t even get that done. And in the midst of being fed that turd sandwich, we are told it’s actually smoked brisket.

Heh. Brings to mind a bona fide classic from years ago, which featured now-irrelevant Milquetoast Conservative and bland Vichy GOPe shill Hugh Hewitt smacking his lips in gustatory delight and declaring, “My, this shit sandwich sure is tasty!” Can’t recall now who posted it originally—the Onion, maybe, back when they were still worth reading, which sorta tells you how long ago this was—nor which issue Hewitt had folded like a cheap accordion on, even. Trust me, though, it was a good ‘un.

Christmas ruined by panic-ninnies

An awkward little Christmas.

Have Yourself an Awkward Little Christmas…
Christmas will never be the same again. For the same reason that America will never be the same again. Millions of us will never be able to look upon some of our fellow Americans – including some of our friends and family members – as we once did, ever again.

The ones who turned their backs on us – and worse – for questioning what we rightly identified as a mass hysteria they embraced. Who feared and loathed us, because we would not wear a “mask” – which we didn’t because we knew that putting it on only fueled the mass hysteria. We didn’t wear the things for their sakes as well as our own. For the sake of calm and common sense. To show normality rather than “masked” insanity. For doing that – often at the cost of being denied not merely service but our ability to earn a living – we were abused as pathologically selfish, granny-killing ne’er do-wells.

They told us we weren’t welcome in their homes at Christmas. That we weren’t welcome, period. Unless, of course, we bought in to their hysteria and played along.

We who questioned – and disobeyed – were cast out, by those who did not question and mindlessly obeyed.

Some of these friends and family members would have supported more than just excommunicating us from their  homes and lives and from society, generally. When the drugs that aren’t vaccines were rolled out, many were in favor of everyone being forced to take them. Tens of millions of people were effectively forced to take them, being under duress. They were told to take the drugs – or take a hike. Lose your job – or lose your bodily autonomy and your self-respect, having bent knee to a violation of your body for the sake of grubby money.

Some of the most hysteric wanted (and no doubt still want in their secret hearts) to see everyone forced to take the drugs they took, perhaps for the same vicious and ugly reason that some people resent people who “get away” with not being made to do what they were made to do.

They then blamed us when they got the sickness they’d been “vaccinated” against. The illogic of that escaping them.

Logic? What is this “logic” of which you speak? Shitlibs and Fauxvid panic-ninnies (BIRM) know not of this phantasmagorical “logic.”

Now we are supposed to pretend it all never happened and sit down for Christmas dinner with these people. It is not quite sleeping with the enemy but it’s not that far from it, either. For, no matter the superficialities, the feigned pleasantries of our previous association, they regard us with suspicion and contempt.

Just as we so regard them.

They know we know what they did, just as we know they know what we didn’t do. They perhaps feel ashamed, some of them. In which case, it would help things greatly if they were to say so – and ask our forgiveness for what they did to us and supported being done to us. We might then be able to forgive them.

But can we ever trust them again? Would George Washington have given Benedict Arnold another command, if he’d apologized for betraying Washington’s trust? Only if Washington were an idiot.

Are we?

Quite the thorny little conundrum, I’d say. Sadly, we have our answer already, and for all too many of us, that answer can only be: Yes. Yes, we are.

Situation Normal: All Fucked Up

Mollie Hemingway calls Yertle McTurtle “the single biggest obstacle to GOP success,” which statement is founded on a wholly erroneous premise: that what’s been going on with the Vichy GOPe for lo, these many years is somehow NOT something they consider to be “success.”

Au contraire, mon frere.

GOP Can’t Be Successful Until Mitch McConnell Is Gone
The Kentucky Republican claimed giving more money to Ukraine is “the No. 1 priority for the United States right now, according to most Republicans.” The new $1.7 trillion Democrat spending bill he enthusiastically supports would give Ukraine another roughly $45 billion in assistance, bringing the total over the past eight months to more than $100 billion, a staggering figure even if it weren’t happening during a time of inflation, looming recession, and other serious domestic problems.

The comment about Republican priorities is so false as to be completely delusional. Among the many concerns Republican voters have with Washington, D.C., a failure to give even more money to Ukraine simply does not rank.

Another comment from McConnell also shocked Republicans. Of the $1.7 trillion left-wing spending spree McConnell is working so hard to help Democrats pass, he said, unbelievably, that he was “pretty proud of the fact that with a Democratic president, Democratic House, and Democratic Senate, we were able to achieve through this omnibus spending bill essentially all of our priorities.” As an indication of how deeply sick and broken and unserious the Senate is, no one had even begun to read the lengthy bill, which was put forward just hours before votes began.

Senators don’t read ANY bill beforehand, nor do “Representatives”; for a long while now, that sort of lowly scut-work gets delegated to staff underlings, who then recommend a yea or nay vote to their bosses depending on certain factors—none of which includes whether it might be of help to the American people, or is something they actually desire to see implemented.

Update! Bill just comes right out and says it:

Sure, We’re Gonna Vote Our Way Out of This

Not this, nor anything else, actually.

Perhaps the biggest, most in-your-face insult of all regarding this latest act of Republicrat treachery and betrayal is, the omnibus smash ‘n’ grab “vote” wasn’t even close. Not by a long yard, it wasn’t. The number to forever remember, graven onto Real American memory until the end of days? The number which, to swipe a fine old phrase, shall live in infamy? Eighteen. Not one, not two or three, nor five or six, even. Eight. Fucking. Teen. Again, Bill just comes right out and says it.

Fuck. Them.

Fuck. Them. All.

Not one more vote. Not one more dime. Not one ounce of support in any way, shape, or form.

If we’re going to end up with a commie dictatorship no matter what we vote for, well, bring it on, the sooner, the better. Let’s drag the whole stinking, totalitarian mess onto the table and see how long it takes for the whole thing to collapse in a welter of fraternal blood.

Oh, I’d say the commie-dictator ship has long since sailed, Bill. Now we’re all just waiting around for the inevitable collapse. In fact, the former Assistant Sec of Housing for Bush 41, Catherine Fitts, says that ship has already sailed too.

CAF predicts, “If you look at FTX, my question is how much of the money sent to Ukraine got laundered right back for the (2022 midterm) election? So, to me, Ukraine is not a destination point, it is a through put point…At this point, and I hate to say it, but we are in full scale implosion. The corruption is that bad. That’s why I am telling you what we need is sovereignty. The federal government is not going to deliver…The financial coup has reached a point where if you want sovereignty, the only person who can deliver that is your state governor and your legislature…If you’ve got a great state AG, if you have great legislature, if you have a great governor, you better start supporting them. They are the people that can protect your sovereignty. You need governmental sovereignty if you are going to have individual sovereignty, and you better do it now. You have no time to be entertained by Joe Biden, Trump and Hunter Biden.”

The federal government corruption was turbocharged in 2019.  CAF says, “While everyone was focusing on the teenage sex life of the Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh, the House, the Senate, the White House, Democrat and Republican, both sides of the aisle got together and approved Statement 56 of the Federal Accounting Standards Advisory Board (FASAB) which said they could keep secret books. That was everybody—together. So, there is no Right vs Left. There is no Trump vs Biden. There is a machine in control of a spending machine that is financed with our taxes, and debt borrowed in our name, that is being sold into our pension funds and retirement accounts…That machine, to keep balancing the books, is implementing a depopulation plan.  That is the reality that has to be faced and changing the President won’t matter…If you want to make real progress against the machine, you’ve got to talk turkey about where your money is going, who are the local leaders and who are your state legislators who are going to support you when this machine fails you completely. If it doesn’t fail you in 2023, it will fail you in 2024. So, you better be ready.”

Prognosis: GRIM.

Obscenity update! The great Julie Kelly joins Bill in just coming right out and saying it.

Traitors
The omnibus package itself is one insult after another to the American people. As Rep. Dan Bishop (R-N.C.) detailed in a December 20 tweet thread, generous funding to secure the borders of other countries is included in the bill with little more than crumbs to protect our southern border, now dangerously wide open to human smugglers and drug runners. Billions more will be spent to promote gender equity, fight “structural racism,” expand access to abortion, and construct buildings and parks named after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, retiring Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ark.) and former First Lady Michelle Obama among others.

Perhaps the most outrageous provision in the bill is a hefty budget hike for the Department of Justice. Attorney General Merrick Garland, who spends the majority of his time and resources targeting Donald Trump, his associates, and his supporters, will receive a nearly 10 percent raise next year, bringing the Justice Department’s annual budget to $38.7 billion. More than $212 million is earmarked to hire almost 100 temporary government lawyers to help prosecute January 6 protesters, a caseload now nearing 1,000 Americans with promises to add another 1,000 more.

The Federal Bureau of Investigations will get $569 million more next year as that agency’s budget exceeds $11 billion for the first time. Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray have made it clear by word and deed that the imaginary threat of “domestic violent extremists,” i.e., those who dare to criticize the regime will remain their top priority. This means more predawn FBI raids of Capitol “trespassers,” more indefinite incarceration for those awaiting trial, more prison sentences for nonviolent offenses, more misery, and more destruction of Constitutional rights.

And that’s just fine with the overwhelming majority of Republicans in Washington who’ve been silent in the face of this unprecedented form of government retaliation against Trump supporters. In fact, outgoing Senator Roy Blunt (R-Miss.) explained that the Justice Department really needed the big funding boost. “I’ve always been for prosecuting anybody who violated the law on January the 6th,” Blunt told NBC News this week. “And there are, like, 800 cases already. So I can’t imagine that they don’t need some extra money.”

Good riddance, you clown.

The FBI, particularly in light of recent revelations of the bureau’s collusion with Big Tech to suppress coverage of Hunter Biden’s laptop and criticism of mail-in voting, should be dismantled and defunded, not rewarded for its interference in two presidential elections among other malfeasance. Nor should the agency receive $375 million in capital funding to build a shiny new headquarters in either Virginia or Maryland as the bill also provides.

But that didn’t stop 18 Republican senators, including McConnell and two-time presidential loser Mitt Romney, from voting to pass the omnibus bill on Thursday. Another “yes” vote was from Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), the former chair of the Senate Judiciary who promised for years to “get to the bottom” of numerous Justice Department scandals.

No group of politicians has licked the boots of President Zelenskyy more than Republican senators. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is among Zelenskyy’s biggest supporters, insisting this week that “providing assistance for Ukrainians to defeat the Russians is the number one priority for the United States right now according to most Republicans. That’s how we see the challenges confronting the country at the moment.”

And there you have it. One of the most powerful—albeit most unpopular—leaders in Washington thinks lining Zelenskyy’s army-green pockets with more U.S. tax dollars is a greater need than tackling any number of ongoing crises roiling the country right now.

Because of course he does; after all, one of those things he cares deeply about; the other, meh, not so much.

Not to be jumping down the throat of a fine writer whose work I genuinely admire and enjoy or anything, but I noted the other day that Ace had (for the fourth or fifth time so far this year, or thereabouts) announced himself done forever with the Republican Uniparty wing—that never, ever again would he advocate for them, contribute to them, or *gag* vote for them. I’m not gonna go dig up a link, because as you all know, hey, I’m a slackass like that.

Now, Ace can say and/or do whatever he likes without reference to what I may think about it, natch. But unless and until enough of us awaken fully to the sordid facts about this sorry situation and resolve to act forcefully on that knowledge, we must expect that we’ll go right on being used as a sort of filthy, encrusted cum-rag by TPTB. They can only get away with this shit for as long as we allow them to, and not one moment longer. It’s high time we figured that out, I think; Lord knows, it’s been staring us right in the face for long enough by now.

Sorry, don’t care

Let’s try something a little out of the ordinary here: a fisking done entirely via FIFY (Fixed It For Ya).

A man who allegedly entered the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021 is being persecuted by the patently illegitimate system without ever having committed an actual crime, is now being accused of conspiring to kill FBI agents Ordnungspolizei thugs.

Edward Kelley, 33, has been charged with conspiracy, solicitation to commit a crime of violence, and other charges committing acts of patriotism and righteous justice, according to a criminal complaint ginned up pack of risible lies unsealed on Dec. 16.

“Today’s allegations ineptly-contrived falsehoods that individuals sought to attack and hurt or kill FBI personnel jackbooted Stasi goons are sickening heartening and encouraging to any right-thinking Real American. FBI employees honorably insidiously perform their duties lawless acts of intimidation, violence, and soulless perfidy against guiltless Americans protecting the American public and upholding the Constitution oppressing the American public and flouting the Constitution and they should be able to execute these duties without threats of violence must be resisted at every possible turn, by any conceivable effective means,” FBI Amerikan Gestapo Director Christopher Wray said in a statement another of his regularly-scheduled attempts at misdirection, blame-shifting, and deceit.

It still just galls the living hell out of me that Trump ever hired this asshole in the first place, it really does, another of his myriad self-damaging bad decisions that both puzzles and infuriates at once. As for Herr Wray’s obnoxious, self-serving whine, I’m with Bill on that.

Yeah, yeah. Nobody believes your crap any more, Director Liemore. Anymore than I believe this faked up arrest has anything to do with the way you are reporting it.

You cloud people want a low trust society? Well, you’ve got one.

Indeed. May they have joy of their choice, and that right soon.

Disrespect for marriage act

These are the times we live in, alas.

Biden Invites Drag Queen To Attend Bill Signing At The White House

President Joe Biden invited drag queen Marti G. Cummings to attend the signing of the Respect for Marriage Act at the White House.

Because of course he did, that’s why. After all, nothing says “respect for marriage” quite like drag queens, no?

I swear, at this point it’s as if they just can’t help themselves anymore; they simply must—MUST—jab a thumb into the eye of all normalcy at every imaginable opportunity. It’s like a compulsion these days with these assholes, they couldn’t stop even if they wanted to. Which, they assuredly do NOT.

Both the House of Representatives and the Senate have greenlit the legislation, which enshrines same-sex marriage protections into federal law in accordance with the Supreme Court’s opinion in Obergefell v. Hodges. Democratic lawmakers recruited 39 Republicans in the lower chamber and 10 in the upper chamber to support the bill, which is expected to be signed into law on Tuesday.

Cummings shared a screenshot of the White House invitation on social media and expressed thankfulness toward the Biden administration.

“To be a non-binary drag artist invited to the White House is something I never imagined would happen,” the drag queen said. “Grateful doesn’t begin to express the emotions I feel.”

Same here, sicko, on both counts.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) remarked in a statement that he voted against a motion to advance the bill because its “religious liberty protections” were “severely anemic and largely illusory.” The lawmaker had expressed concern that religious individuals and organizations could be exposed to litigation and the loss of nonprofit status under the new law.

Biden nevertheless praised the final passage of the Respect for Marriage Act, saying that “millions of marriages and families” have been put at ease following the Supreme Court’s ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which overturned Roe v. Wade and other previous opinions purporting a constitutional right to abortion.

“On this day, Jill and I are thinking of the courageous couples and fiercely committed advocates who have fought for decades to secure nationwide marriage equality at the Supreme Court and in Congress,” he said. “While we are one step closer on our long journey to build a more perfect union, we must never stop fighting for full equality for LGBTQI+ Americans and all Americans.”

Because hey, what could possibly be more critical, more absolutely, positively vital, to the well-being of any conventional married couple and/or the institution of marriage itself than unfettered baby-murder and the promotion of sexual confusion and deviancy? The next bit is as predictable as yesterday’s sunrise.

Cummings also conducts activism on behalf of the “queer youth population” in New York City, according to Out. “I also think we need young people at the table. We need new, fresh voices,” Cummings continued.

Le sigh. Gee, bet you didn’t see that coming, now did ya?

“FLY, you fools!”

Looks like a lot of San Franciscans have been heeding Gandalf the Grey’s urgent admonition to the other Nine Walkers from the Bridge of Khazad-dum, right before he smote the Balrog and descended into the deepest pits of Moria along with his foe.

Why no one is buying downtown San Francisco’s luxury condos

Underneath the headline is a photo taken from one of those luxury high-rise apartments, overlooking what was once one of the most physically-glorious cities in all the world, now tragically reduced to a shit-encrusted, unlivable pit of despair, blight, and iniquity by decades of ultra-liberal misrule.

These days, a luxury high-rise in downtown San Francisco with units that appear to be mostly empty isn’t an uncommon sight. As a cooling real estate market continues to impact the city, downtown condos might be some of the hardest-hit properties around.

Patrick Carlisle, Compass’ chief market analyst, said that while economic headwinds are affecting real estate markets everywhere, downtown San Francisco’s condo market has been hit especially hard.

“That market has been hit hardest in the city,” Carlisle told SFGATE. This is due to a few different factors, he said, one being the mass abandonment of downtown office spaces since the start of the pandemic.

IE: all part of The Plan, then.

Speaking of tech workers, Carlisle said the uncertainty brought on by mass tech layoffs has also affected property sales downtown. He added that an increase in homelessness and crime in downtown areas has affected the “quality-of-life ambiance” for people in those areas, presumably buyers who are reluctant to live among the city’s unhoused populations.

This condo market, Carlisle said, is separate from the luxury condos located in areas like Russian Hill, Nob Hill, Pacific Heights and the Marina District. Condos in these areas tend to be built in older, smaller buildings located in less urban neighborhoods and have taken much less of a hit than their glossier counterparts downtown.

“The downtown market has been hit much, much harder than the luxury condo market in these older neighborhoods,” Carlisle said. “I’m not saying there haven’t been effects in places like Russian Hill and Nob Hill and Pacific Heights because there have been. The market has softened there also, quite significantly, but not to the degree that the downtown market has.”

According to a recent report from Compass, the median sales price of a two-bedroom condo in downtown areas has dropped by 16% since 2021, compared to a 7% drop in the price of two-bedroom condos outside of that area. The report also states that condo inventory in this area is more than twice as high as the rest of the city — which explains the seemingly empty high-rises looming everywhere downtown.

In October, one 45-story luxury high-rise made news after it was revealed that only 13 of its 146 units had been purchased in the two years they’d been up for sale. Rumors that Steph and Ayesha Curry had purchased a unit at the property, named the Four Seasons Private Residences, turned out to be false. The development features units that range from studios to $49 million two-story penthouses.

Ah well, “what goes up must come down” still applies, I guess.

Despite these trends, Carlisle said that for some, this downturn may act as a chance to purchase a condo at a lower price.

“Of course, there are people who see this as an opportunity to get a good deal,” Carlisle said. “There are condos selling in the newer luxury developments in the South Beach and Yerba Buena areas at large discounts from what people paid for them three, four years back. You know, we’re talking gorgeous units with spectacular views in ultra-luxury buildings.”

Views that also feature feces-strewn, used-needle-clogged streets and sidewalks; reeking stewbums, junkies, thieves, and miscellaneous thugs; and the ever-dwindling handful of affluent, smarmy shitlibs stubbornly determined to ride the SF disaster out to the bitter end somehow.

Yeah, thanks but no thanks, bub. Having been to SF many times on tour with the BPs over the years, I loved the place for its beauty and once-myriad charm, but no longer. I wouldn’t go back there now if I was being paid by the hour, and obviously I am by no means alone in that sentiment. It’s truly sad, a latter-day American disgrace, that’s what—a pluperfect example of what inevitably results each and every time shitlibs are allowed to run things.

Pedophile story hour

Maybe it’s time we just start calling a spade a spade here.

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, and self-control. But the fruit of public libraries is faux diversity, drag queens, and rejection of the sexes — which is why the taxpayer-funded cesspools are “not interested” in giving Kirk Cameron a storytime slot to read his new children’s book on the fruit of the Spirit to kids.

The actor, writer, and producer “has not gotten a single ‘yes’ from the 50-plus public libraries his publisher has contacted so far,” Fox News reported in a Wednesday exclusive. According to Cameron’s publisher and Fox’s scouring of the libraries’ websites, “Many of the same libraries that won’t give Cameron a slot…are actively offering ‘drag queen’ story hours or similar programs for kids and young people.”

It’s not only drag queen story hours, where adult men derive pleasure from strapping on prosthetic breasts, painting theatrical contour all over their masculine faces, and sporting fishnet tights for an audience of children. These libraries reportedly host queer book clubs, a series called “Every Month Is Pride Month,” and so-called “get free help” events where attorneys and other volunteers help patrons fill out legal paperwork to change their names, record themselves as the opposite sex (or sexless entirely), and alter birth certificates, Social Security cards, driver’s licenses, IDs, and passports. But if you want to read to kids about gentleness, goodness, and kindness, it’s a hard no.

The self-important and self-appointed “principled conservatives” have expended much energy lecturing right-wing culture warriors who resist this debauchery. When conservatives took offense at libraries using their tax dollars to sponsor sexualized events that spit in the face of their deeply held religious beliefs, The Principled Conservatives™ were there with a finger wag and a condescending, First Amendment! Tsk! Viewpoint neutrality!

Barring people from doing sex shows for kids in publicly funded venues is not against the Constitution, and it’s specious to argue that if you insist there are constitutional limits on speech and this is precisely one, that you’re somehow a proponent of “big government” or “against the free market.” There is no free market for children. And there are ways to establish reasonable and constitutional limits on speech — such as withholding government funding from events and venues that peddle books and activities about sex for children — something many conservatives are striving to do even if the self-described principled wing is too lazy or too cowardly to do that intellectual and ground-game work.

At this point, the only way Cameron stands a chance of equal access to public libraries across the country is if he dresses up like a prostitute, gyrates around a reading room, and prods children to shove singles in his underwear.

The thing people like Cameron — or Jack Phillips or Barronelle Stutzman or Lorie Smith — understand but many establishment Republicans and “principled conservatives” don’t is that the left hates us and all the values we claim to be conserving. They don’t care about playing by a certain set of rules because their method is lawlessness (see: unpunished Black Lives Matter riots, brazen election meddling, illegal student loan bailouts, or unconstitutional vaccine mandates, to name a few). They scoff at viewpoint diversity because their aim is groupthink (consider: Big Tech suspensions for dissenters on a number of topics, or mass firings of health-care professionals who held unfavorable opinions about the jab). And they laugh at appeals to the First Amendment because they abandoned it long ago.

As my colleague John Daniel Davidson recently wrote in these pages, “[A]ccommodation or compromise with the left is impossible. One need only consider the speed with which the discourse shifted on gay marriage, from assuring conservatives ahead of the 2015 Obergefell decision that gay Americans were only asking for toleration, to the never-ending persecution of Jack Phillips. The left will only stop when conservatives stop them.”

Standing athwart history, yelling “stop” — or “viewpoint neutrality” or “free speech” — might have been enough to preserve liberty in the ’50s, but it’s almost 2023. If you want to know how well it’s working today, ask Kirk Cameron.

Or, y’know, anybody else who’s been paying attention and has even half a lick of sense.

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

"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."
