The truth about the real crimes of the last 10 years is out there and most of it is already in the hands of various law enforcement and intelligence agencies but it will never see the light of day and they wonder why we mean to keep fighting for our second amendment rights.

The top levels of the Justice Department, Federal Bureau of Investigation, National Security Agency and CIA conspired to remove President Trump from office. At a bare minimum they are guilty of treason and they are clearly guilty of conspiracy.

Faces of Treason

The highest echelons of the FBI, NSA, CIA and Department of Justice conspired to overthrow the President of the United States in a coup.  They really need to go to jail.

Yesterday would be soon enough to find all of them locked up and I include the liars who ran the National Intelligence Directorate, CIA and NSA and when you think about it for two seconds and know that they record every single phone call and every bit of internet traffic then you know that they had the information at their fingertips to disprove all the bogus allegations made by the Clinton re-election forces and Fusion GPS and they didn't lift a finger to stop the hysteria and lies.

They all need to be charged with conspiracy to overthrow the President of the United States and then go directly to jail forever.

I'm sure that our communist/socialist leadership have considered the benefits of sticking to the old ways when it comes to carbon reduction and facilitation of transportation of goods and people. Who could possibly be more green than that great benefactor of the people, Joseph Stalin. Oh sure, he followed where better men had gone before but if one simply steps back a century or two there are all kinds of ways to eliminate the climate destroying transportation networks of the modern era by, wait for it......building canals and using mules to draw the barges up and down the canal networks. Nobody ever talks about mule farts so they're OK and therefore won't be contributing to the greenhouse gasses that are killing our planet.

Bernie and Alexandria and all the never Trump people think that the people who voted for Trump could best be employed in digging those canals, by hand and it would almost certainly lead to full employment although a lot of people will be missing when they decide to take our guns away, for the children, in the name of the People.

It's about time.

Office of the Press Secretary
– – – – – – –
     The current situation at the southern border presents a border security and humanitarian crisis that threatens core national security interests and constitutes a national emergency.  The southern border is a major entry point for criminals, gang members, and illicit narcotics.  The problem of large-scale unlawful migration through the southern border is long-standing, and despite the executive branch’s exercise of existing statutory authorities, the situation has worsened in certain respects in recent years.  In particular, recent years have seen sharp increases in the number of family units entering and seeking entry to the United States and an inability to provide detention space for many of these aliens while their removal proceedings are pending.  If not detained, such aliens are often released into the country and are often difficult to remove from the United States because they fail to appear for hearings, do not comply with orders of removal, or are otherwise difficult to locate.  In response to the directive in my April 4, 2018, memorandum and subsequent requests for support by the Secretary of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense has provided support and resources to the Department of Homeland Security at the southern border.  Because of the gravity of the current emergency situation, it is necessary for the Armed Forces to provide additional support to address the crisis.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, by the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including sections 201 and 301 of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.), hereby declare that a national emergency exists at the southern border of the United States, and that section 12302 of title 10, United States Code, is invoked and made available, according to its terms, to the Secretaries of the military departments concerned, subject to the direction of the Secretary of Defense in the case of the Secretaries of the Army, Navy, and Air Force.  To provide additional authority to the Department of Defense to support the Federal Government’s response to the emergency at the southern border, I hereby declare that this emergency requires use of the Armed Forces and, in accordance with section 301 of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1631), that the construction authority provided in section 2808 of title 10, United States Code, is invoked and made available, according to its terms, to the Secretary of Defense and, at the discretion of the Secretary of Defense, to the Secretaries of the military departments.  I hereby direct as follows:
Section 1.  The Secretary of Defense, or the Secretary of each relevant military department, as appropriate and consistent with applicable law, shall order as many units or members of the Ready Reserve to active duty as the Secretary concerned, in the Secretary’s discretion, determines to be appropriate to assist and support the activities of the Secretary of Homeland Security at the southern border.
Sec2.  The Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of the Interior, the Secretary of Homeland Security, and, subject to the discretion of the Secretary of Defense, the Secretaries of the military departments, shall take all appropriate actions, consistent with applicable law, to use or support the use of the authorities herein invoked, including, if necessary, the transfer and acceptance of jurisdiction over border lands.
Sec3.  This proclamation is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this fifteenth day of February, in the year of our Lord two thousand nineteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-third.

It looks to me like he is planning to use the military construction and engineer units to build the fences along the border. I can only hope he gets a more responsive and willing response from them than I ever did when I tried to get Prime Beef or Red Horse to lift a finger and build stuff in Korea or anywhere else on the planet.

OTOH, the two Naval Construction Battalion Centers are in Port Hueneme and Gulfport so they're pretty close to the border and I've found that one can actually get See Bees to build stuff in a timely fashion if you ask right. I'm not sure about Army Engineers. 30 years in and I never saw them anywhere. I spent a week at Fort Leonard Wood once on my way to Korea the first time and I don't recall seeing any Army engineers there either which is odd when you know that Fort Leonard Wood is home to the Army Engineer School. OTGH, I spent that week dealing mostly with the Transportation Corps and the rolling wheel of shame. A full week endlessly doing the same thing over and over again until their CO figured they'd got it right. We were just fodder for the mill.

NASA finally admitted that the Opportunity rover has finally, after 15 years of work on Mars, come to the end of the line. It was one heck of a good run.


I saw this while scouting around the internet this evening and I thought it was a clever thing to propose and perhaps a very clever thing to do.

On the other hand, they're all destructive parasites. This one simply has very little impulse control and is willing to blurt out her hatred for people she doesn't even know at the drop of a hat. OTGH, whenever I think about the handful of sick, twisted, vicious, loonies we have just like her in this country, I feel a little pity for Europe which is rapidly filling up with millions of 'refugees' just like her.


1922 The scientists went to a hospital ward with diabetic children, most of them comatose and dying from diabetic keto-acidosis. This is known as one of medicine's most incredible moments. Imagine a room full of parents sitting at the bedside waiting for the inevitable death of their child. The scientists went from bed-to-bed and injected the children with the new purified extract - insulin. As they began to inject the last comatose child, the first child injected began to awaken. Then one by one, all the children awoke from their diabetic comas. A room of death and gloom, became a place of joy and hope. Photo Credits- Library and Archives Canada
Insulin was first discovered by researchers in 1921 and was first used to treat diabetes in 1922. This is roughly 1 year from discovery to use as medicine. Imagine if they had in place back then the same sort of bureaucracy we have today. Insulin may well not have been used until some time in the 40's. One could say that much the same thing would have happened with the discovery of penicillin.

No, this isn't about the nonsense being carried out by the special prosecutor and his team of Trump hating lawyers, this has to do with the truly sad state of American higher education. "The problem is real. It’s documented by George La Noue, professor of Political Science and Public Policy at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, in his forthcoming book, Silenced Stages: The Loss of Academic Freedom and Campus Policy Debates."

 I will find and read the book but this one quote is all you need to see that liberals and progressive fascists have killed debate and reason at just about every institution of higher learning in America.
La Noue concludes that: “For most students in American higher education, the opportunity to hear on-campus debates about important public policy issues does not exist.” A few elite universities and law schools were somewhat better at sponsoring policy debates than the great majority of other schools, but although environmental and health policy were frequent topics, “immigration, abortion, government financing, international trade, speech, sexual assault, affirmative action, and even gun policies were almost never debated publicly on campus in 2014 and 2015.”
In my experience it is literally impossible to discuss any of those topics across political lines or across strongly held beliefs opposite to one's own beliefs. Again, in my experience it is the people who supposedly are liberal and progressive that simply will not hear a word spoken if it contradicts what they believe in and they don't use any absence of facts to deter them from attacking anybody who disagrees with them and not just a little attack. There is spittle flying from their lips and their gestures become frenzied as they attempt to make the point that they'll kill you before they'll listen to you contradict them and they believe that they are being reasonable and open to new ideas as they do this thing every single time.

From time to time I run into a like minded open-to-reason type of guy and we will converse quietly in a crowd and make statements contrary to the strongly held beliefs of those around us and they will start to close in and start hissing and then they get ugly. I remember one time at the library at the top of the hill coming up Washington Street from Shakespeare's Pub in San Diego that the girl standing behind me and the man I was talking to about tax policies on the ballot literally couldn't control herself. Practically every sentence we finished got a forceful HMMMMPPPPPPHHHHHH from her and they got louder and louder. I think the guy I was talking with finally decided to see if we could get her to scream in rage. Success!

I wouldn't spend a penny on anything except studies in STEM. The liberal arts are as dead as the Roman Empire.

I find these irresistable. I know that the Democratic Black Caucus gives her a run for the money with their own unique ignorance and stupidity and as far as I know Ocasio-Cortez doesn't actually think an island can flip over if it is overloaded with too many Marines but still, she is dumber than dirt.

Future Democratic Party Congresspersons

Others no doubt picked up on this before I did but this is the first time I've seen him write down that he plans to run for President. I didn't really think he wouldn't because that kind of power is hard to let go of once you get it in your grasp and it costs him nothing to try. Also, I think he really likes campaigning against the slow-witted buffoons the Democratic Party tosses up to run against him and if he has to slag a couple of Republicans along the way, he's OK with that too.


Our planet hunting space-based telescope has shot its last frame shortly before it ran out of fuel after 9 and a half years and finding over 2,600 planets beyond our solar system. It was a remarkable achievement for a satellite designed to last just 3.5 years. I love when our space contractors design and fabricate incredible machines like Kepler and our Martian rovers, not to mention the Voyagers. I sure wish the Air Force would hire them and then get the hell out of the way when they design and build the satellites we use in space to study the earth.

Have the global warmist gang ever wondered, “gee, we could completely reverse global warming with a thermonuclear war and the resulting fimbulwinter?”

Probably not. They like to have forever problems and never even try to fix anything.

You will laugh out loud at the Power line pictures of the week. So enjoy.

I saw this obit last night and was impressed with how foolish NBC makes itself look whenever it puts it's thoughts down on paper or in pixels. They have most surely fired every single one of their copy editors.

Not every man is surrounded by his wife when he dies. That almost sounds like some barbarous custom from some 3rd world country.

Feb. 7, 2019, 9:18 PM EST
By Rebecca Shabad
Former Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich., the longest-serving member of Congress who played a key role in many pieces of landmark legislation, has died. He was 92. He was diagnosed with prostate cancer last year. 
"Congressman Dingell died peacefully today at his home in Dearborn, surrounded by his wife Deborah," the office of his wife, Rep. Debbie Dingell, said in a statement. 
"He was a lion of the United States Congress and a loving son, father, husband, grandfather, and friend," the statement said. "He will be remembered for his decades of public service to the people of Southeast Michigan, his razor sharp wit, and a lifetime of dedication to improving the lives of all who walk this earth." 
Dingell first arrived to Congress in 1955, taking over the seat held by his father John Dingell, Sr., who had died earlier that year, and the younger Dingell continued to serve in the House for more than 59 years. He announced in 2014 that he would not seek re-election and instead his wife, Debbie Dingell, ran for his seat and is now serving her third term.
I really despise these House Seats that become fixed in one house and one family. I despised the Kennedy's and all the rest who pass along their status as a representative of the people as some kind of legacy they are allowed to leave to their own family. That's more Roman Empire than a Republic and it doesn't belong in our civilization anymore than nepotism belongs in government hiring.

He sounded like a good man, if a little off the beam on some things, but I urge you to read the entire article. It doesn't take long. It looks like he might have been the last real man in the democratic party.

Just about everybody has read the Harry Potter books except me. I bought them for my daughter and she loved them from a tender age but I never so much as tried to read any of them and I like the genre of the sort of books these purported to be but I just never got into it. I never saw the movies except I sometimes glimpsed a few minutes of them whenever I visited the Exchange at Yongsan Main Post where they were always on all the televisions for sale, year after year after year.

And now I know why.
LONDON, U.K. — In a controversial Tweet this morning, Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling revealed that you, the reader, have been gay ever since the release of the best-selling children’s series.
“When writing, I always envisioned the reader as gay,” Rowling wrote. “This has been the case since the first page of Philosopher’s Stone, and as the dictator of canon, what I say is now established lore.”
It's an interesting admission for any author to make to her adoring fans over two decades after penning the first of the books read by millions. I really have no idea why she would feel the need to say it now unless she meant to be malicious.


Saw this at Wirecutter's.

They left out Castle Anthrax.

I can't imagine we'll see films like this again in my lifetime.

Found at Ace of Spades.  The only news I caught about his appearance was that De Blasio dropped the poor little guy in New York and zoo officials concealed that the drop killed the poor little groundhog. I guess this is what really happened.


It might be time to call for the doctor and read Candide again. Voltaire's joke about a degreed academic looking at the world through particularly stupid glasses is looking more and more prophetic. It's not now that they claim again and again that this is the best of all possible worlds but that they now declaim again and again that we are the worst country in history and the worst people ever. It's really getting old.
