IT WAS CALLED THE BELKNAP MOD

This is for the earlier post. The men who fought that fire, were real sailors, like most of the rest of them. These things happen and we train to make it something you sail away from, lives intact.

HOW I GOT A CELL PHONE

I was an expectant dad and thought it would be nice of me to appear around the same time Scooter did. It had to work in Canada because my job had me there for some time buying boats for the navy. I'm looking at alternative services to Verizon who bills me every week or two and it suddenly struck me. I no longer need or want a cell phone. I spent most of my life not answering phones and I can do it again. It is funny to me how Verizon has been diminishing their service to me to the point where it takes an hour or two to load a map. I'm not that guy in front of you on the plane landing in Las Vegas who instantaneously downloads 57 videos from his pals and streams them as he walks off the plane. Funny, Verizon turned my face away from cell phones despite all their attempts to get me to buy a thousand dollar phone.

ND

I know there are a lot of people carrying. I never hear of ND from those guys. Cops, they lose guns and mistakenly shoot them all the time but the general pop, carrying, I never hear about them. Perhaps they carry like I would and don't have a round in the spout. Difficult to to with semi-automatics.

THE TURBO

Because someone never saw it before.

CANCEL

I've decided that this blog must cancel racists so fuck off BLM. I've also decided that this blog is canceling woke. So fuck off woke. The world would be better off without global waming losers, so fuck off global warming losers. Try to read outside of the box you stupid fucking lemmings. Every single thing you believe is garbage.

100% OF THE LEFT ARE BARKING MAD

To see and witness the left's complete derangement over the Rittenhouse trial is mind boggling. Yeah, the kid will need to legally change his name in order to get on with his life but the media and the left have just gone insane. I think my favorite passages from my Race have been,

Wake up you woke SOBs. You going all violent and vicious isn't a free pass anymore because now you get to embrace martyrdom. They don't like that. That hurts. I think the days of them hurling insults with megaphones while the sheep look up are just about over. The days of looting, burning and attacking are also probably coming to an end. OTGH, I still get a kick out of the BLM wormtongue claiming that Kyle Rittenhouse and the rest of us supremacists attacked peaceful BLM losers and "THEIR ALLIES." You have to be all kinds of stupid to claim arsonists and pedaphiles as your allies.

Oh and yeah, my race? The race of reason, of course. Oddly enough, Allen Dean Foster captured it very well in one of his books; Bloodhype, as I recall.

It is time to stand up and be counted. On the Other Gripping Hand, I took a look at the numbers on my street here in metroparkcentralis and it looks pretty bad for my team. My street is 91% registered democrat and just 9% rethuglican. 6% of us didn't vote in the latest election. They keep ducedly good records of that sort of thing here in the metropark. On the other hand, I'm pretty sure I know who owns 99% of the weapons on this street.

IN THE AIR

Ever since I lived on an Air Force base my eye has been drawn to the sky when I see an airplane flying overhead. Today, as I returned from the west side on I-90 I saw what looked very much like a fighter jet making an approach to Burke Lakefront Airport and sure enough as I was heading east at 65 mph he was heading into a missed approach or go around heading west at 180 mph. When he broke to starboard and headed out over the lake for the go around I could see the solid blue body that only the Blue Angels flaunt and as he made his final approach I could see it was #7. When I got home I did some online searching and found that they were in town to coordinate the Blue Angels first return to Metropark Centralis since 2018.

I kind of miss driving up 163 or I-15 and I-5 and watching the F-18s and their predecssors flying overhead. The A-7s vanished even while I was at Selfridge Air National Guard Base. They used to come in so low over the golf course I thought I could hit them with a chip shot. The same thing almost at NASNI where one crosses the road over to the beach holes at Sea & Air and finds signs that warn of low flying aircraft and recommend cars stop and let them pass as everything comes together right where the runway begins and the aircraft are given an opportunity to merge with auto traffic.

Next year and it's going to be super hornets.

VICE PRESIDENTIAL NEWS

There are rumors swirling around the sewer called Washington DC that Kamala Harris is out as Vice President and Barack Obamam will be nominated for the office and confirmed by the Senate later this week. Once he's in he will quickly shuffle the brain dead Resident off to a nice covid free rest home and assume his rightful office as head of the Empire.

I'm keeping my eye on things just to see how this comes about.

Oh, OK, I just made it up.

THEY'LL KILL FOR ASYLUM IN EUROPE

It's really kind of funny watching the europeans go nuts trying to rewrap the leprosy known as illegal forced migrations and muzzle the beast they created all by themselves through the powerful office of the Chancellor of Germany. Now the Poles are using water cannons and gas on the invaders attacking their western border. The invaders are now throwing rocks and cutting the fences in order to make the Poles and europeans take them serious as just poor harmless little refugees from Syria, Afghanistan, Lebanon and every other place muslims have turned into Hell on earth.

And of course, we have our new Chancellor of Germany running things in the White House. I'm not sure what that guy's names are but it is clearly an invasion orchestrated by the White House and the democrats in Congress. They are letting the invaders in and oddly enough, many of them are coming from the Hells on Earth they created in the middle east and in Latin America and now they want to bring it to America.

RANGE INTERFERENCE

I keep seeing Bezos and Blue Origin trying to screw up space flight and SpaceX. They've tried the law and been shot down and now they're teaming with NASA to keep anyone from landing on the moon until NASA and their monstrosity are ready for prime time in 2025, maybe, if all goes well although it doesn't sound like anybody has worked any of the bugs out of the lunar return module.

I guess I'm kind of surprised Bezos hasn't taken to parking random ships in the downrange capture basket for SpaceX rockets landing on the drone barge 325 miles downrange from Cape Canaveral. I remember something as simple at shooting at San Clemente Island was often made difficult by the morons that decided to fish in the closed waters on the south end of the island. My concern for them was best expressed by me proposing to use High Explosive Control Variable Time 5 inch frag rounds to clear the range. I figured a few airburst around them would send them on their way quite quickly, one way or the other.

I don't know what kind of stand off clearance SpaceX needs to have around Bob, their drone ship when it is in capture mode but I also don't know how they clear the interference out there if and when people get inside the safety distance. Since we're talking Elon Musk, it wouldn't surprise me if he has a pirate submarine out there to warn off or just sink boats that interfere with Starlink and other missions into orbit.

VETERAN'S DAY

I always remember this day for two things. Neither one of them is really about the Veterans as weird as that is to write. I remember the day because it is Armistice Day and that at 1100 on the 11th day of the 11th month of the year 1918, the guns finally fell silent all along the front in Europe. It was a war that utterly destroyed the civilization that preceeded it and led to the long dark night of depression and then the utterly predictable second world war as the Germans rose up against enemies who had treated them despicably and then forget that vengeance is a fury almost unmatched in hatred and ferocity. We are not making veterans that same way that we were last Veteran's Day and thank God for that. The War on Terror is finally over and we are slipping back into the easy Phony War on Terror which alike with the phony war on Poverty and illegal Drugs is one that we cannot win even if we can lose it. I'd venture to say that we've lost the War on Poverty because we failed to gut the new Educrats and put them in stocks on the school grounds for parents and students to stone for the very notion of social advancement and letting even the kids who cannot read a word, pass out of high school with a diploma and no meaningful skills at all so they form the shock troops of the Armies of Darkness and BLM and the hordes of bloodsucking decvilization types on par with the Mongols known as antifa.

Alike, we lost the War on drugs. It wasn't much of a war but oh how it made the young pay for minor mistakes with their lives destroyed and ruined by things that are not even considered a crime now. It was the law as much as the drugs that ended too many dreams and extinguished any hope for a bright future once it took ahold of one and wrestled them through the legal miasma we call justice.

We aren't doing so well in the Social Wars of the 20th and 21st Centuries. It seems a great pity that our leaders have declared war on the climate. They really seem to think they can defeat it somehow but I'm not sure what they'll use as metrics. 99% of everything they think they know about global warming is a myth and none of it is within the grasp of mankind to change or alter. We will win yet another echoing defeat for the ages when the smart people resume their place and guide and shape the young and guide and displace the stupid and idiotic.

I mentioned two reasons for remembering this Day. Happy Birthday, Mom!

THE QUESTION BEGS TO BE ASKED

Chelsea Boudin, son of parents who both killed policemen in cold blood is the District Attorney for San Francisco where he is notorious for letting criminals get away with murder and not even bothering to charge them for their crimes. In this crime he let a felon kill two more women and let him off without charges. So the question is, why has nobody gotten drunk or high and run over and killed him? It's apparantly no crime to do so and the world would clearly be a better place without him. Where is Dirty Harry when the city needs him?

HAPPY HALLOWEEN

There were some good images this week. Here are some i liked.

WILL

I haven't been this mad since a Master Chief Engineman and Diesel inspector told me I had to hot flush all my main propuslsion engines and generators. I threw that jackass off the ship. I hate liars.

THE HATEFUL TRUTH

Read all about it. Sowell never gets old but the anger and hate is really piling up. He is also the last man in America that can say it without an instant pileon of pigeons screaming that he's a racist. No mistake, there really are stupid pigeons who will have a lash at it.

I've noticed that when enough people set out to break something, they do. Sadly, it really only takes one. The Bonhomme Richard serves as the most fiery case. One man did that. I personally think we broke the country. I don't see it coming back.

This is one battle in a much bigger war, and the stakes are far higher than the governorship of Virginia or the Democrats and Republicans. The stakes are the future of this nation. When school propaganda teaches black kids to hate white people, that is a danger to all Americans of every race. Anyone at all familiar with the history of group-identity politics in other countries knows that it has often ended up producing sickening atrocities that have torn whole societies apart.

If you have a strong stomach, read about the 1915 atrocities against the Armenians in Turkey, "ethnic cleansing" in the Balkans, or the reciprocal atrocities between the Sinhalese and Tamils during their civil war in Sri Lanka.

Do not kid yourself that this cannot happen in America. The relations between the Sinhalese and Tamils in Sri Lanka were once held up to the world as a model of intergroup harmony.

They got along better than blacks and whites have ever gotten along in the U.S. But then a talented demagogue polarized the country with group-identity politics, to get himself elected prime minister.

HOW LONG?

It took this allegedly smart guy over 3 years to learn that the Department of Defense has acquisition labs with senior staffs made up of the biggest/baddest rice bowl protecting people ever and that they will never give up their software engineers even if Alec Baldwin pointed a gun at them and those little critters write the code on their schedule, their timelines, their terms and when they feel like it and oh, go get them a sammich. I remember peering down that particular muzzle wondering why our graphical data fusion system was kluge and could not adapt to new hardware instead insisting that we buy the last 12 microsoft windows 85 compatible 10 year old laptops on the planet by making a special plea to the Irish owners and paying roughly 20 times the going rate for brand new laptops.... It had reached the point in DOD, even 20 years ago, that the only way weapon system acquisitions could or would change is if one sent in Alec Baldwin with an awful lot of ammunition.

MORE GUN DEATHS

Famous now as a killer maniac, Alec Baldwin shot a producer to death on the scene of his movie. He also shot a man but he's likely to pull through and recover. Why did Baldwin decide to murder his producer? The world wonders. I'm sure Hollywood will blame the gun for going off all by itself and hitting and killing someone not even on the set or a likely candidate to be just randomly shot and let's be honest, NOBODY puts real bullets in a prop gun as a joke. Somebody was meant to kill and be killed. Baldwin is sufficiently despicable for either ends of the gun equation.

YET ANOTHER HIT ALFA

I too saw that General Powell was reported dead of covid 19 despite having all the shots. I also wondered if America was able to reap data from the latest victim of the plague. The shots don't actually work. This world wide devestating plague that only kills about .02% of the people that catch it strkes me as the new AIDS. AIDS was far deadlier and yes there was a terrible odor associated with it right up until that Warrant Officer and his kids died of it. At that point some of us learned that it was a blood born pathogen and anybody who got a transfusion could get it and both be a carrier and die from it and it lost that faggoty cachet right then.

It's going to be hard to believe that a whole world entered bankruptcy because of a little tiny percentage of people who died from catching the new flu. It didn't have to be like this and we all know it, those of us who are and remained sane.

WHO COULD FORGET?

A REPOST

I think of it as the swan song for Europe. It sure feels like it. And it's incredibly evocative.

FIRE

I read as much as I could stomach of the report on the fire on USS Bonhomme Richard. It racked everybody for their failures to understand and deal with fires on warships. I mean it hit everybody except perhaps the Navy Image of it's New Woke Self. What I read was a damning indictment but it stopped short of saying that the culture of the Navy itself was to blame. I'm pretty sure the current USN bears little resemblance to the one I served in back in, say, 1988. It was a warzone but you never heard of it. However, the training there was indistinguishable (nice fire word, see how I worked it in....) from the training I mandated on my stateside ship in San Diego. Both ships were old and made of wood and soaked in fuel and lube oil for decades. Consequently, I took fire very seriously and made sure everyone else did too. There was a full scale fire drill every single day. Sometimes 2 or 3 times. Every single time I shut down an engine at the end of the day it was a full scale casualty control drill. Every day I sat in the wardroom and briefed the members of both the Damage Control Training Team and the Engineering Casualty Control Team about what we were going to do to the crew. The only bit of non-realism allowed in the drills was that the men who made up the training teams would be the actual ones in charge when we actually had a fire but this way everyone knew the drill and the DCCT and ECCT played it as real as it gets. We charged fire hoses because maneuvering a charged hose is way different than moving around a flacid uncharged hose. We briefed the team to be 'ON THE SPOT' to keep the crew from lighgting off the devestating fire fighting systems but we wanted their hands to be reaching for the activation switches in every drill whether it was HALON, CO2 or twin agent fire fighting foam. Switchboards got stripped and it was as real as it could be short of an actual fire.

We had a quarterly fire fighting assessment from our Group Staff. We actually passed one inspection as the inspector was walking down the long pier to our ship at the distant end away from the Admiral Kidd Club. There was an electrical fire that broke out as he stepped on the pier and the Officer of the Deck passed the word promptly over the shipwide announcing system. Fire Fire Fire......blah. Class C fire in the blah blah. Then he was phoned by the Electrician of the Watch that power had been secured, He passed that word as the Senior Chief Damage Control man walked up the pier and then passed the word that the fire was out and the reflash watch was set.

If I had timed it exactly as a drill it could not have been better. I knew this all because I was walking down the pier with the Senior Chief having met him in the parking lot. We played inspections like the game they were and gamed the hell out of them but this one was real life. He took inventory of our Repair Lockers and announced himself satisfied before lunch and we went out for a few pitchers at Pure Platinum. What a nice emporium that was. Our sister ship spent the next 2 days trying to pass the same inspection. It was ugly.

The fire fault finding is detailed. It's worth a look if you're in the prevention business. Every single aspect of 'prevention' was unsatisfactory and the sad reality is that it probably still is on every ship in the USN. Training an entire crew of everyone in damage control is made harder when fewer and fewer of them are up to the rigors of it and dismiss it as somebody else's problem. You know, something for the turd chasers to deal with. I'd extinguish that kind of attitude immediately but it is the manifestation from the aviation dets translated over to the pure crew. Not my problem. I think we now have a lot more ship riders than crew on our ships. When I saw the article about how over-officered they were I was stunned. Too many officers not enough indians is the definition of stepping into disasters unseen and unprepared for because it was 'someone else's job.'

HEY MY LITTLE ONE

The words are all here. They're for growing. They always were.

AS I SAID, I WRITE IT DOWN

Every now and then I rip out the page and throw it away. It doesn't pay to remember in anger and keep it bright and shiny when the simple passage of time will pull the sting from just about anything.

I WOULD THAT THIS IS SO

It may be truth but it could be fiction. I do like their burgers and fries though and miss them almost as much as I miss Robertos. Where the governments get off declaring private citizens their enforcement arm escapes me. That doesn't sound much like America and I say that even though they did it with beer and cigarette sales. My favorite always remained the hotel down the street that kept its cigarette vending machine that simply took quarters and never asked for ID decades into the ban on the sale of tobacco to minors. When I would wander over there for a late night purchase when every store in Emeryville was closed, I always recalled the good times when I could tell a long-winded orator on PARKHILL or NAVYRED, "dropped synch, say again".

SEND THE COMMISSAR

Sending the commissar to make profitable an industry or farm is like sending a Democrat to restrain spending.

AND PEOPLE WATCH THIS SHOW?

They must be really stupid people.

TALENT ON LOAN FROM GOD

I had never really thought about it before....but imagine, translating a poem from Latin into English. I dare say that would be more difficult than simply translating a book but perhaps on par with translating a song. Far beyond my meager language skills.

Still, I once served very briefly with a Reserve LT who was riding our ship on his AT and he translated things from the Russian into English. I was quite amazed and asked how well he spoke Russian and his reply lingers to this day, "Can't speak a word of Russian. I just take the articles Navy Intelligence sends me and crack open the Russian-English dictionary and look up all the words.

I somehow sense that American Intel has never really matured from that point and that all of our Intel comes through a similar fountain of mis-knowlege of purpose, intent, plan and deed.

Try some Juvenal and see how it fits today.

EVER WONDER?

Where would our society would be if we hadn't lost Education of the young to the communists 60 years ago? If we had kept on as we had been going after World War II and educated those willing to learn to the high degree we used to educate our young in this country? Somehow it all went to hell around the time, "I'm OK, You're OK" was published. It was all downhill after that and now we teach our regular school kids as if they are all in special education and we have to be mindful not to trigger an outrage storm that disrupts learning for the entire class for hours or days. Learning has kind of come to a standstill in most schools. The more woke the schools the more offended the students and the learning curve accelerates downwards. Now everything is racist all of history populated by racist bigots and rapists prowl the restrooms.

It doesn't have to be this way. We could start by making absolutely sure that nobody with a 'degree' in education ever gets a job in any school ever again, even pushing a broom.

BRINGS TO MIND ALL LEFTISTS

Ripped off from wirecutter. Is this not exactly like watching leftists, liberals, true believers, greens and other assorted idiots. They have exactly the same blind belief in going to a place only they can see and then always and forever ending up in the drink.

THE NAVY BRASS GOES BARKING MAD

The Admirals have decreed, via NAVADMIN 225/21 that all navy personnel will be vaccinated or discharged. The dates are set for termination of those who do not knuckle under and comply for both Active Duty and Reserve personnel. Read it all and weep for the Navy. They start off in full blown crazy ruthless mode. It goes rapidly downhill from here.

2. Policy. In order to maximize readiness, it is the policy goal of the U.S. Navy to achieve a fully vaccinated force against the persistent and lethal threat of COVID-19.

2.a. In support of the above stated policy, and as directed by the Secretary of the Navys lawful order, the Navy has commenced a mandatory vaccination campaign per references (a) through (c). Navy service members refusing the COVID-19 vaccination, absent a pending or approved exemption, shall be processed for administrative separation per this NAVADMIN and supporting references. To ensure a fair and consistent process, separation determinations will be centralized under the CCDA as outlined in the paragraphs below.

So I wonder, will the Navy be issuing a Campaign Medal for this is or is this more like the Combined Federal Campaign?

Let's wander deeper into the illusionary world the Admirals appear to live in. Let us recall from the first line of Paragraph 2 above that the Policy being enforced is to maximize readiness. Let's look at how that plays out.

2.b. Tragically, there have been 164 deaths within the Navy family due to COVID-19, far exceeding the combined total of all other health or mishap related injuries and deaths over the same time period.

The other source of some news about this tragicomedy is USNI. In their article they posted:

Sailors must be prepared to execute their mission at all times, in places throughout the world, including where vaccination rates are low and disease transmission is high,” according to the Navy news release issued today. “Immunizations are of paramount importance to protecting the health of the force and the warfighting readiness of the Fleet.
While this is true in the main it was never the intent that this was always so because that would be insane. Pregnant women are not deployed to combat zones even in this age of equity after a certain point. People get injured in car crashes, motorcycle accidents, sporting accidents, on leave and a thousand other ways that render them unable to execute their mission at all times. We have grown accustomed to that. It's one of the reasons our warships are sailing around undermanned because people are sick, on leave, at navy schools or detached for really stupid reasons like serving ashore in Iraq or Afganistan on Involuntary Assignments to Army jobs. We had tens of thousands of sailors detached from every possible command and squirted off to the desert to meet some infantile and stupid assignment polcy agreed by dumdums in Washington.

More from USNI as food for thought.
"As of Wednesday, 94 percent of active-duty sailors have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, with 99 percent having received the first dose, according to the Navy.

Of the total force, 89 percent is completely vaccinated, while 94 percent have received the first shot.

There have been a total of 83,648 COVID-19 cases within the Navy, including active-duty and civilians, according to the service. Of those cases, 164 resulted in deaths.

There have been 14 active-duty deaths out of 48,231 cases.

There have been more deaths due to COVID-19 than other health or mishap-related injuries and deaths over the same time period, according to NAVADMIN 225/21."

It would be illuminating to see how many sailors and Marines have committed suicide in this timeframe and how many of them have been killed in aviation accidents and other accidents. Disease is part of life and the USN is going to lose thousands of people in unplanned losses at every level if people decide to leave rather than get shot. I see that the worst admirals plan to do for those who refuse is a General discharge under honorable conditions. This will result also in the loss of them all to any Reserve service obligations and how they plan to collect money and benefits paid in the expectations that things would remain the same will be of little interest to me. It is, after all, only money and this is the service that hounded hundreds of naval aviators out of the Navy following the Tailhook 91 debacle. They little know nor care at that level about the personal or personnel costs of their rabid decision making and policies.

AND ON THIS NOTE WE SAY GOODBYE CHRISTOPHER

Lifted from the folks at Powerline. Think how timely such a blog name that is as the power fades away in the West....

COLUMBUS DAY TRIFLE

We seem doomed to forget history so here's a reminder by Robert W. Munson, Cabrillo National Monument Historian.
Like virtually everywhere else on earth in 1542, this is a slave owning society. In a pre-industrial age, the labor of slaves is an operational necessity. The few black slaves are prisoners of war from North Africa; the bulk of slaves here are Mayan prisoners of war. Remember that although the conquest of Guatemala was officially completed five years ago there are still active Mayan cities holding out in the mountains to the east, and raids and counter-raids are never ending. Do not impose 21st century values. You truly believe the Mayans deserve to be slaves because their refusal to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour means they are obviously minions of the Devil. This does not mean you can’t care about them and treat them kindly (if firmly) as shown by your bringing them salvation through Our Lord. For most Poblados the ratio is one female house slave for every three male field slaves.

This is a Roman Catholic society. There is no other true religion. Any other religion’s adherents are at best decent but woefully misguided people, and at worst full-blown followers of Satan. Heresy is a real threat to humankind. We are doing God’s manifest will. This is demonstrated by the fact that in the very year Their Catholic Majesties King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella completed the Reconquista, 1492, God revealed his next duty for his Catholic people by having Columbus discover the New World. A world languishing in the total darkness of the Devil: paganism, idolatry, human sacrifice, and cannibalism.
I happen to think finding the New World was the most significant event in history and all those who think that society is judged solely by its adherence or failure to adhere to modern norms of the white middle class are stupid and ignorant. Just look at the norms espoused by those who despise Columbus and all that came after him. These are the same people practicing infanticide, child slavery, prostitution, sex-trafficking, narcotics dealing and mass murder in the streets of every major democrat run city in North America. Who in the hell cares what they think?

Have a Happy Columbus Day!

WHY DO THEY NEVER SEE IT COMING?

I see that Biden is demanding that President Trump reveal what he was doing while his supporters and FBI agents and informers were invading the Capital Building. President Trump is holding firm on Executive Privilege. Biden insists that we have a right to know. Well, on that subject Joe, just what exactly was Obama doing when Al Quida was massacring our Ambassador and consular people in Benghazi and screaming for help and even getting some from the military before somebody told them to stand down. Who was that Biden? Where was our Secretary of State the mouth-breathing moron Clinton when that attack was going on? These questions having to do with the whereabouts and activities of the National Command Authority have never been answered. Let's hear and see what really happened when America's enemies attacked.

And on that note.....just why have we let China off the hook for inflicting a massive world-wide epidemic on us? Why have we taken no action against China and all their works and kicked them out of civilized society for practicing germ warfare (using a weapon of mass destruction) against the United States et al?

On on that note, why the mandate forcing the unwilling to take a vaccine that NOBODY stands behind with an offer of restitution if the side-effects kill or injure people who suffered themselves to be treated like lab rats for the likes of that foolish imbecile, Fauci?

It goes without saying that I get an enormous kick out of the Southwest Airlines Pilots deciding enough was enough with the crippling mandates and fake labor dictats of the left and simply refusing to fly anymore until the company takes the jab off the table as a condition of continued employment. Control over what one puts into one's body is the very soul of our democracy and way of life.

TIME FOR A VACATION DON'T YA THINK?

I see that our untamed senate democrats are facing redoubled pressure after our idiot=in-chief the zombie has declared that it is worthwhile ending all comity for all time in the Senate and getting rid of even the palest shadow of bi-partisan behavior in the Senate and ending the Senate rules for cloture as they currently exist. They've done it before:
"The Senate tradition of unlimited debate has allowed for the use of the filibuster, a loosely defined term for action designed to prolong debate and delay or prevent a vote on a bill, resolution, amendment, or other debatable question. Prior to 1917 the Senate rules did not provide for a way to end debate and force a vote on a measure.That year, the Senate adopted a rule to allow a two-thirds majority to end a filibuster, a procedure known as "cloture." In 1975 the Senate reduced the number of votes required for cloture from two-thirds of senators voting to three-fifths of all senators duly chosen and sworn, or 60 of the 100-member Senate.
In the old days it took real no-shit bipartisan support to get a bill through Congress. These days there is no compromise and the weaker side doesn't just get sent to bed without supper, they get the bayonett and maybe, if they're lucky it's a clean kill.

People wonder why there isn't more comity and bipartisanship in the Congress? It's because they keep changing the rules in order to eliminate compromise and then whine about it later. I laughed when that idiot Harry Reid used his little nuclear option on all presidential appointments except the Supreme Court and then watched helplessly as the Republicans under McConnell just blew them out of the water and got all of President Trump's judicial nominees in with simply majority votes. The arrogance of the democrats knows no limits and then they get all outraged and surprised when the rules they changed are used against them.
And yes, they're stupid enough to try it again. OTOH, a few of them must know that the 2022 elections are going to be a wipeout. Still, I think if Manchin and Sinema want to come back they should think about going on vacation right about now. They couldn't find a better spot then one of these:

THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE

Here is a little piece of escaped truth.

They aren't even trying to pretend it is a real menace except when they try to kill your rights and liberties.

STRUCK REPEATEDLY IN THE HEAD, STILL WON’T DIE

LAUGHTER, STILL THE BEST MEDICINE

From the Instapundit comes this quick little article. The fun was in the first 18 comments which reflect another level of the underlying reality that still flows through the web today.

IT IS TO LAUGH

Just got home from an extended birthday bash 4 states away from here. It was fun and we enjoyed it. Tonight, after a long drive home I had a chance to see Amanpur and her hate on America show as they interviewed Anita Hill about what a sexist racist bigot that justice was back when she worked for him at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission where she was some kind of powerless slave totally in thrall to the Man and unable to forma coherent plan to deal with what she viewed as outrageous intrusions on her personal life. You get where the laughter comes from when you realize that everybody involved in producing this show totally supports the idea of grown men permitted to use women's rooms and teenage boys allowed to use the girls locker rooms anytime they feel like it.

How a nation of 'educated Americans' ever accepted this nonsense is beyond me. See? And now some of you are wondering which bit of nonsense I'm talking about. Is it the Anita Hill BS or the Blasey Ford assault on another Justice with her deranged obvious lies about a past that only exists between her ears and nowhere else? Or, is it the idiocy of letting men use the same facilities as teenage girls just because they feel like it?

UNHEARD IN AMERICA

This is pretty egregious.
Sixty-six percent of college students think shouting down a speaker they disagree with is acceptable to shut down their talk, and another 23 percent believe violence can be used to cancel a speech, according to a wide-scale survey released this week.

The 2021 College Free Speech Rankings, a follow-up on the first survey in 2020, asked over 37,000 students at 159 top-ranked U.S. colleges and universities to share their views about free speech on campus. Published by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, RealClearEducation and College Pulse, the results show freedom of expression on campus remains a pressing concern. Not only do 66 percent of students say it is acceptable to shout down a speaker to prevent them from speaking on campus, that result is up four percentage points from last year. Another key finding is that nearly one in four students say it’s acceptable to use violence to stop a campus speech — up 5 percent over last year’s survey — with some elite colleges bringing that figure to as high as one in three students accepting of such violence.

Underscoring these findings, more students are keeping their mouths’ shut, even during a year when most campus activities and instruction moved online.

Eighty percent of students reported that they self-censor viewpoints at least some of the time on campus, and another one-fifth of students reported that they do it quite often.
There is something very wrong with education in this country. This kind of thinking and behavior was never allowed and should never have been allowed. It is pretty clear that it will not stop until administrators and faculty kick these kind of students out of the schools and universities and start again by emphasizing civility. Those that like violence and hating their enemies to death can just stick to antifag and BLM where they like an unfair fight as long as they hold the weapons and outnumber the people they are hating on.

CLEAR AND SIMPLE AS THE TRUTH

I'm beginning to think stupidity and ignorance are highly contagious.

Tuesday, September 21, 2021

STUPID AND REALLY REALLY STUPID

I have to admit I laughed out loud when I started reading about the CO2 gas shortage leading to an immediate and drastic crisis in the United Kingdom. You can find some of the background here. I have excerpted a few funny quotes:

Ministers are desperately trying to persuade the millionaire boss of a US fertiliser firm that produces 60 per cent of the UK's CO2 to restart production.

CF Industries, one of the biggest fertiliser businesses in the world, shut its two plants in Teesside and Cheshire after a large surge in gas prices meant continued production wouldn't be profitable.

"The plants produce 60 per cent of the UK's carbon dioxide with the decision to close them blamed for plunging Britain into a CO2 crisis set to decimate the food industry, leading to animals having to be culled and supermarket shelves being empty."

That's funny right there. The owner shut down production because the idiot government let the price of gas go up just a little bit.
It takes really stupid people to destroy an entire national economy over a completely fake manmade fictional tale of woe. It's not just the British policy elite, we got our own morons in government.

"Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng is now holding fresh talks with CF Industries millionaire chief executive Tony Will, 55, in an attempt to persuade him to restart production.

Mr Kwarteng says No10 is considering 'temporarily' subsidising the company to get CO2 production back up and is 'very hopeful' a deal can be done soon.

However, he admitted 'it may come at some cost' after Mr Will is thought to have been unconvinced by the government's offers at an initial meeting on Sunday.

News that CF Industries controls so much of the UK's CO2 supply has prompted fury and disbelief from food industry bosses.

Richard Walker, managing director of Iceland, said yesterday: 'The thing that has shocked me is that 60% of [CO2] production is concentrated in two factories which are both owned by a foreign business.

'This is something that's clearly critical to national security - not just food but also healthcare as well. So it seems quite perplexing that it's at the whim of a private enterprise in terms of whether it's profitable or not and therefore whether they produce the stuff or not.'"

If the ministers were serious about getting the business restarted during the cost crisis all they have to do is offer the company energy at exactly the price it was before it went all pear shaped. I can't imagine any businessman turning that kind of offer down and it's fascinating that in this case, as in most others, the national authority can no longer appeal to the patriotism of the business class since they are rarely patriotic these days and with little reason to be so.

SUICIDE THEN

I caught this item from Ken Burns today who quoted a January 1838 speech by Abraham Lincoln.
It looks very much to me like successive American governments have opted for American suicide. There really can be no other explanation for continuing to let in an unending flood of economic migrants who have no skills at all and instantly go on the dole and turn to crime and get resettled all across small town and small city America. We have all the ignorant criminals we can handle and more every day turned out by our public schools unable to read, write, perform the simplest math and as ignorant of civics and history as a stone. No wonder we have morons clamoring about mythical made up crap like man made global warming and hating nuclear power at the same time. This isn't going to end well. Those apocalyptic movies from the 70s are looking more and more likely to come about.

THE RED CROSS WANTS ME

I received an urgent plea from the Red Cross to give blood. They declared that all donors must of course wear a face mask during the donation for the safety that's in it. It's an interesting take on risk management that something as useless as a paper mask is required but yet they are working day and night to eliminate all barriers to gay men donating blood and are therefore accepting whatever risks there are that some poor recipient downstream could get HIV contaminated blood. It makes for really weird reading as they blend pure ignorance and imbecility with a plea that also explains that they're taking steps to keep everyone safe.

I'll go back to my normal donation cycle when they return to normal and put behind them this ongoing idiocy about a disease so dangerous one has to get tested to know if one has it.

THE UNIMAGINABLE

I watched one of the Tucker Carlson clips about our drone strike on a van load of little children in Afghanistan and listened to the perps explain how it was righteous and done strictly in accordance with the established procedures we have used in Afghanistan since we launched Enduring Freedom and I think with 20 years of that kind of thing we have raised 2 generations of men who will die to kill Americans in any way possible and I can't say that I blame them. Even if we held the men who did these things accountable it would make no difference in the grand scheme of things since men who have lost their family and children to a "righteous" drone strike probably won't be fobbed off vengeance when we strongly resist giving the perps so much as a slap on the wrist.

Contrast the way the Army in both Iraq and Afghanistan treated "righteous" drone strikes or bombing/strafing runs that killed innocent civilians with how the same commanders treated soldiers, sailors and Marines who killed or injured civilians or even terrorists and you start to wonder at the amazing disconnect with reality suffered by officers wearing stars. They find it perfectly appropriate to torment and court-martial men for alleged misbehavior that might have led to a terrorist getting a fat lip but turn a blind eye to "righteous" killings via air strikes.

It was said that war makes monsters of us all. I heard that quote some years ago on a radio show and it was attributed to one of our bomber crew that flew missions with the 8th Air Force in World War II and dropped thousands of tons of bombs in a "righteous" sort of way on anything that moved in Germany and most of the things that didn't. Nobody on our side was ever charged with killing innocent civilians and if you look at the policy in place at the time, while the 8th Air Force conducted day-light precision bombing and paid dearly for it, the RAF and the Pacific Air Force set out to destroy entire cities and again, nobody was prosecuted because the winners don't have to sit through that kind of peak under the curtain. Only the losers get that treatment. Mind you, the 8th Air Force didn't bomb in daylight out of any concern about civilian casualties, the generals just thought they stood a much better chance of hitting the actual targets of the raids if they could see them.

I have the sense that civilization is coming to an end but not as projected by Fukuyama and not as Huntington proposed in his "Clash of Civilizations." The barbarians without and beyond The Pale are not the ones undermining civilization now, it is our own institutions that have repurposed and dedicated themselves to destroying Western civilization to the point that there can be no clash because Western civilization won't be around to show up for the clash. American civilization used to be bred in the bones of its citizens and I think Norman Rockwell reflected what it was like to be a white American as we entered the Cold War. Almost all of that sense of purpose and history is gone now. Only old people have any idea about civics, history, economics, thrift, industry, decency.

What 9/11 brought about, temporarily, was a return to a unity of purpose. All of that was frittered away and no place reflected that more than NYC as the moguls and politicians waged all out war over the replacement for the World Trade Center. It played out in the public eye and I think everyone was revolted by it. The government actions since then have repelled almost all the people who once believed in government as a positive force. Only fools believe that anymore. Government exists to exert awful pressure on citizens in order to turn them into subjects and criminals. It lets the connected insider elite such as Jamie Gorelick or Hillary Clinton get away with murder and it hastily proclaims that all those who have dirt on people like that commmitted suicide when they're found dead, even the ones in federal custody. And we the people, have let them get away with that.

I see Justice Breyer has resisted strong urgings from democrats that he retire right away and give Biden and his idiot Senate a chance to name a thoroughly corrupt creature of the elite such as our current Attorney General to his place on the Supreme Court. Breyer has so far declined and is not persuaded by the fact that Ginsburg also resisted the clarion howls that she resign on Obama's watch and spitefully died on when Trump was President leaving him to fill that seat on the Court. The democrats figure Breyer won't last as long as Biden and fear that the Republican Senate that comes to office next year will reject Merrick or any other communists from taking a seat on the Court. Breyer is a dead man walking. I expect him to turn up dead any day now from some nagging little cough that turned into Ebola or something worse. At any rate, I'm pretty sure they'll off him with Covid. I wonder how many strange men in coveralls have been seen in the Supreme Court building in the vicinity of the air conditioning system with odd little brief cases stuffed full of live covid virus. If the democrats accidently wipe out the entire Supreme Court it won't be any skin off their noses. They can appoint 9 new tame communists and move on with their plans to further wreck the country without any judicial restraint at all. Not that the Courts have really been known for judicial restraint since Roe v Wade.

It doesn't pay to see things like this when the whole Western world seems hellbent on recreating a fascist dictatorship of massive proportions again. Just looking at Australia turned into an entire nation of sheep over a virus that has a 99% survival rate is amazing. I'm appalled.

ON THE GRIPPING HAND

There is some well founded suspicion that this is a bunch of undercover feds looking for trouble at the bogus justice rally. wouldn't it have been amusing though to get some friends to dress like these guys and attend the bogus rally sure and certain that all the LEO types would assume your're undercover feds with absolutely no hint about proper disguise and leave you alone? OTGH, you're a fed ordered to perform undercover surveillance on those Trumpians but you voted for Trump and so did the other guys that look like you in federal LE...

CUE THE LAUGH TRACK

I see that dunderheaded elite foreign policy drones have been so successful in their ongoing diplomatic efforts they have made the French recall their Ambassador for consultations after some clever dicks got the Australians to pony up the dosh for U.S. nuclear submarines built in Australia in lieu of some cheapo French diesel boats. It takes a rare talent to make the French so angry they throw a hissy fit and stamp their little feet. On the other hand, those cheap diesel boats that were going to be built in France by the French were going to cost the Australians $90,000,000,000. Losing that kind of sale is a poke in the eye for anybody.

Now why would I laugh out loud when I read the news about this? Well, somehow there exists somewhere in America some really clever guy who convinced the powers-that-be in Australia that the U.S. really truly would sell nuclear propulsion technology to another country. The Australians will find themselves out $40 billion dollars on submarine production before some jackass here whips the rug out from under them and tells them they don't have the right clearances to see our nuclear stuff after all. We have proved faithless to all our European allies so it won't come as any surprise to them when this happens but won't the Aussies be surprised.

Another thing I find amusing is the Australian Navy. Right now they can only scrape up enough submariners to crew 3 of their existing 6 submarines. It is really unlikely they'll be able to find many more to crew nuclear powered boats. And then there is the school house that they're going to have to attend here in the U.S. one presumes. It will be interesting to see how we handle giving foreign students U.S. SECRET and TOP SECRET clearances. Not saying it cannot be done, it will just be interesting to see how they contort themselves to do it.

It will also be interesting to see if they throw themselves into designing a new boat or if we simply sell them Virginia class submarines. At any rate, I expect this to be a monumental disaster when all is said and done.

EDUCATION, RADICALIZATION, AVOIDANCE

I have been reading a number of articles over the last year or so that show that young white men are avoiding colleges and universities for some excellent reasons. Some of the articles posit that young white males feel under attack by the schools and the toxic racist environment they have created, nurtured and expanded over the last decade or so. There's room to appreciate that argument and I think it is true. There is also the speculation that not only are the colleges racist but they have also turned into enormous bastions of overt misandry and with the absurd and criminal degree that colleges and universities have abused Title IX it is not surprising that young men would prefer to avoid it altogether.

I have another hypothesis that explains young white men avoiding college and it really has little to do with either of the above reasons. Is it perhaps, I wonder, that they have figured out that there is little to no value in going to college anymore unless one is interested in a STEM degree? Why rack up enormous unforgivable student loans that will take years if not decades to pay off? Perhaps young white males are smarter than the average college student.....

MIXED FEELINGS

I liked this book when I read it and enjoy it just as much when I reread it.

"Perhaps the most macabre touch during the long trip was the “casualty pool.” For a five-rand bet, troopers pulled out numbers ranging from 0 percent to 100 percent. On the return trip, half the pot would go to the soldier whose number most closely approximated the percentage of casualties suffered during the operation; the remainder would go to charity.

A hulking farmer’s son in the Iceman’s Support Group, Superior Private Kobus Nicodemus, drew the ticket that equated to 100 percent casualties and observed, “Now I know what they mean by mixed feelings.”"

This came to me as I was looking at a picture of Austin Bay's input to Instapundit.
It is the highlight on a naval officer's career to command. As I look at the picture and imagine the life as CO of one of the LCS I imagine they view their lot much the way Superior Private Nicodemus did in the paragraph I quoted. Yay me! Selected for Commander Command! Oh woe, I get to command a little crappy ship instead of a guided missile destroyer like my peers. I think at that point you could say that your position has been established. It will be the guys that drew the DDG commands that go on to make captain and flag officer.

This then reminds me of a chat I had with the commanding officer of the Naval Brig at Miramar. He was a nice Marine lieutenant colonel who had gone through the same mood swing when he was selected for command. As he said, he thought he'd get an F-18 squadron command as a result. He didn't even know that the brig counted as a command. It does, along the same lines as command of USS Constitution.

Mixed feelings. I'm glad I dodged that bullet. As I came home today from the university I was struck by how the democrats pulled the same trick on the electorate with Biden that they did with Obama. They picked a complete buffoon and imbecile as their VP so the incumbent president would be bullet proof against impeachment. Obama got slow Joe and we got Harris. Isn't it odd how the candidate of fear and trepidation that was to limit attempts to oust Obama has ended up as the figurehead of his party and the country and has found someone even more awful and incompetent to be his #2?

To get rid of Biden we are forced to accept Harris as president.

SLOW MOTION SUICIDE OF THE WEST

One thing alone cannot be replaced by anything under the sun and that is the power that drives western civilization and yet it seems that Europe and the fools here in America are keen to whip that power away and replace it with little or nothing. How can anybody look at thisand not wonder what is going to happen come winter?

I lived in southern California back when ENRON and the ISO were raping their customers and shutting off the power in the north of the state. The only thing that saved us in San Diego from their rapacious greed was the complete lack of high energy transmission lines between our power sources in the south and the users in the north. They could not steal our power to send it away in order to line their pockets with yet more stolen money. It was all down to very bad government, greed, vile lawyers and the usual anti-civilization turds that careen around the world unchecked.

As the world watches, the wheels are coming off western civilization and the fools that live there still don't realize that winter is coming. Yeah, yeah, I read the first 3 books. With winter and darkness comes a drastic cut in solar power and a better than even chance that wind turbines will be braked to keep from over-revving with a resultant loss of power and then the shitkickers in the CDC will moan about upticks in the covid/flu/whatever it to destroy the economy some more.

On the gripping hand, I hear that Hawaii, New Zealand and Australia are screwing it up even more. They're not even waiting for disaster, they're busy making their own.

VERY IRRITATING

As you might guess. I have found almost everything over the last 10 days profoundly irritating. There's little point in rehashing it all here since it has been covered so well everywhere else. We decided to go to Pittsburgh and get away from it all. It's a nice drive which, if you had asked me when I was going to school in the middle of Pennsylvania 40 years ago could happen, I would have denied it. We used the interstate you see. Back then I-80 was ALWAYS torn to pieces and my family wouldn't use the I-76 because my mother hated all the little carve-outs PENDOT made to accommodate the thousands of State Police with their radars aimed at catching motorists and giving them $600 speeding tickets for going 5 mph over the speed limit. There was some animus there and it never faded. She still won't use I-76 to cross the state from Virginia to Ohio. It's a good thing they finished I-68 and Penn Alps doesn't hurt.

The nation suffered a wicked injury when Joe Biden took office and he and his "way smarter than you" cronies have been compounding that felony ever since in every way they can think of. As we wrote earlier, they fucked up and over the schools, higher education, teaching, meaningful infrastructure (roads, reservoirs, prisons, power generation and transmission, little things like that) and now they've screwed up all of that completely and destroyed the military as I knew it.

If only there was some sort of solution to this problem. Something final. Terminal. Angry. It really is the time to do all those things many of the smarter of us are doing. You know, buy ammo, food, medicine, ammo, blankets, ammo, food, tasty stuff that comes in bottles, ammo, etc. But perhaps it is more important now for GOOD PEOPLE to run for every level of office in the land from School Board to Mayor, City Council, Library Board, and yes, even Congress. This isn't going to be fixed until people get up and fix it. That means going out and working at the polls every election and working with the hated other party with cordiality and respect. They're not all evil monsters.

AN INTERESTING READ

An interesting read.

She missed one crucial point. Most guys in the US don't want to get married anymore. There are zero upsides to it now. 8 nephews, none have taken the bait and some are nearing 40. An interesting but unhealthy dynamic. OTGH, I married at 42.

THE CONSTANT NOISE

I live across the street from 3 schools. It just now struck me that I havent heard the voices of little boys in many years. I do, actually, find that a little terrifying. You should too. If you thought your silly incels were bad, wait for it. The last time men were disenfranchised in the West was ugly. People think society changes. It does not and never did.

OUCH

I don't know the man but I think this, in a proper world, would hurt the secnav. I cannot imagine how bad it has become to serve even the USMC in uniform. They were famous for staunch back in my time. yes, I watched his video several times. I know who he is. Sadly, the creatures in the Pentagon don't know a damning indictment if it bit them really hard on their ass.

HARD TO BELIEVE

I've now seen it twice. Read it twice. Biden is clearly demented but the vice president is Kamala Harris and she is just about as brain dead as Biden and then the next one that comes in the failure from the top chain of command is Nancy Pelosi.

Just what did America do to deserve to get this? I see the Marines did as expected and terminated with extreme prejudice the LtCol who dared to call them on their failure to pay the price for failure on a massive scale. Everybody knew that was the only way it would play out since they really don't have any choice on the matter. They still demand loyalty up the chain even if they have long discontinued loyalty down the chain of command and Scheller knew it.

And again, what did America do to deserve general milley and the rest of the joint chiefs of incompetence? I think in the old lexicon it came about because too many people refused to care and left things to the idiots and morons who believe in fairies and that the taliban are thugs of their word and you can trust them not to kill.....

Does anyone else share the sense that civilization is about to collapse again for the umpteenth time? Worldwide collapses of civilization have been rare but they happen.

For me? The truly scary thing? I no longer care. For the first time in almost a hundred years, no family skin in the game. I was the last.

If you haven't watched this before, I find it brilliant and wonderful.

CLEARING THE DECKS FOR A POST ON OUR DISMAL

I am casting about for the words to describe our dismal failure. It looks like joe has outed himself. His handlers totally blew it. and because this just sounded, gratis

IT IS A SONG

And it happens to be how I got to Memphis. It was love. Memphis is a truly horrible city. One would only go there out of love or, if touched, the music. Music touched me once and died. I went for the other reason. It was just as they decided to demolish the ghettos and fully integrate the city. Hideous crime exploded faster than you can even imagine. Overnight the once safe neighborhoods were gone. I've been wondering of late if what civilization has done is to unleash vicious out of control thugs in the vain effort to get the rest of us to man up. We kind of see how that plays out where a black lt of cops gets to shoot and kill a white women and the rest of us get the shitstorm of blm over the death of scumbag george floyd. So yea, I went to Memphis with a 2 year old looking to maybe buy into the place. It was never going to happen. Unlike her, I've lived in the South. She'd last about 10 seconds and she was a rabid republican. She was simply unable to conceal her contempt for everybody. That's really not the path to happiness and goodness. After flunking out of Texas, Portland, Olympia, she has found a new home in the whitest city in America.

SAD

It was sad to see them fade away. I'm talking about the cruisers and the men who commanded them. The bar stools at the Main Brace had the ships names on them so that the men who commanded the cruisers always had a place at the NAVY bar located at pier 2. Yes, back in the day a JO could step in and shoot pool and hobnob with cruiser CO's. I can close my eyes and see that not happening so much these days.

Mind you, these cruiser CO's would be most likely to say, "screw this, let's go close down a real bar with girls." And off we would go.

NOT MAJOR MALAY OR THE FAST

You can safely sign me up with these guys. And no, we are the good guys. Always have been.

KILL

4 posts in under a minute. a new record

rule #17, don't blog angry.

I figure, with trigger control and some deep breathing exercises I can probably make it out of the next 3 years.

We were watching Enola Holmes tonight. It is a wonderful movie for those with some finger discipline issues.

I don't think I'd put money on the first statement. I only just started reading the news.

GONE

Anybody who has been there could see it coming. Entry control is for dead men walking. Only Biden and Milley could screw it up enough to kill 12 American Marines at one blow.... give credit to the new Marine commanders. I'm sure they're as steeped in stupid and dumb as the new Army generals generated under the watchful eye of democrat dumdums. Seriously, did those idiots think that the afghan trait of suicide bombing was in abeyance? What kind of moron thinks that? Oh yeah Milley I know you do and so do your buttsisters that you picked for LTGEN and General.

THE LAST CENTURION

I watched Chris Wallace interview Blinkin and ask him very simply if the president was aware. Blinkin failed twice to answer the question. It suddenly reminded me of The Last Centurion by John Ringo. In that book, the protagonist is stranded behind enemy lines with an enormous arsenal that was abandoned by the US Government as it flooded back to the United States to deal with a global pandemic and "global warming". The story is good and it is surprisingly on target as it brings up the mentally deranged, idiot president who reacts by turning more and more tyrannical.

A good read for the times.

DEAD OR ALIVE?

I just watched the white house spokething declare that there are no stranded Americans in Afghanistan and that the dumbie is going to bring all of them home. It was probably just me and hundreds of thousands of other Americans all wondering at the same time if she meant dead or alive. She was not channeling HAL Moore. She was being remarkably stupid. But then, her voter base is remarkably stupid.

A DEEP READ INTO MILITARY DECEPTION

The Taliban have totally outed themselves now. They are everywhere and in plain sight. Is it possible, conceivable, that the deep strategy of our buffoon leadership both military and civilian, was to cause these trolls to take up their places in palaces where they can be struck instantaneously by huge flocks of Tomahawks?

Naaaah.

We're talking about these guys.
