I tried a search at amazon for ringo; no joy. i tried a search for John Ringo; no joy. For those of liberal/literal persuasion, no joy, in navalese, means struck out. Amazon tells me there is no author named Ringo or John Ringo. WE really need to school them the way $GME did. It might mean ordering tne small 1500 ton tug shipped and then sending it back. There's a way to be heard loud and clear when the obnixioscenti want to play games.

I was younger then, the jeans were worn by wear and the music was to die for although it has not been a long time since I heard the strings play in person at a private party for friends. I've been to meetups with the 100 relatives time after time and none of us broke out the banjo, fiddle, guitar, etc. I will pass over my relatives next door with their ukeleles and their soi-distant guitar noises. To be honest, they could not wake the dead however well they tried to parlay their limited strumming skills. I should know. I've been there.

Elon Musk took the trouble to write out a few bits of wisdom if not philosophy. Based on my experience over the last 60 years I think he makes some really excellent points that need hi-lighting and I can do that.

Progress, Precision and Profit

Elon Musk Everybody


First, congratulations are in order! We have now completed our third full week of producing over 2000 Model 3 vehicles. The first week was 2020, the second was 2070 and we just completed 2250 last week, along with 2000 Model S/X vehicles.

This is more than double Tesla’s weekly production rate last year and an amazing feat in the face of many challenges! It is extremely rare for an automotive company to grow the production rate by over 100% from one year to the next. Moreover, there has simultaneously been a significant improvement in quality and build accuracy, which is reflected in positive owner feedback.

Starting today at Giga and tomorrow at Fremont, we will be stopping for three to five days to do a comprehensive set of upgrades. This should set us up for Model 3 production of 3000 to 4000 per week next month.

Another set of upgrades starting in late May should be enough to unlock production capacity of 6000 Model 3 vehicles per week by the end of June. Please note that all areas of Tesla and our suppliers will be required to demonstrate a Model 3 capacity of ~6000/week by building 850 sets of car parts in 24 hours no later than June 30th.

Any Tesla department or supplier that is unable to do this will need to have a very good explanation why not, along with a plan for fixing the problem and present that to me directly. If anyone needs help achieving this, please let me know as soon as possible. We are going to find a way or make a way to get there.

The reason that the burst-build target rate is 6000 and not 5000 per week in June is that we cannot have a number with no margin for error across thousands of internally and externally produced parts and processes, amplified by a complex global logistics chain. Actual production will move as fast as the least lucky and least well-executed part of the entire Tesla production/supply chain system.

By having a Model 3 subsystem burst-build requirement of 6k by the end of June, we will lay the groundwork for achieving a steady 6k/week across the whole Model 3 system a few months later.

As part of the drive towards 6k, all Model 3 production at Fremont will move to 24/7operations. This means that we will be adding another shift to general assembly, body and paint. Please refer anyone you know who you think meets the Tesla bar for talent, drive and trust. Between Fremont and Giga, Tesla will be adding about 400 people per week for several weeks.


Most of the design tolerances of the Model 3 are already better than any other car in the world. Soon, they will all be better. This is not enough. We will keep going until the Model 3 build precision is a factor of ten better than any other car in the world. I am not kidding.

Our car needs to be designed and built with such accuracy and precision that, if an owner measures dimensions, panel gaps and flushness, and their measurements don’t match the Model 3 specs, it just means that their measuring tape is wrong.

Some parts suppliers will be unwilling or unable to achieve this level of precision. I understand that this will be considered an unreasonable request by some. That’s ok, there are lots of other car companies with much lower standards. They just can’t work with Tesla.


A fair criticism leveled at Tesla by outside critics is that you’re not a real company unless you generate a profit, meaning simply that revenue exceeds costs. It didn’t make sense to do that until reaching economies of scale, but now we are there.

Going forward, we will be far more rigorous about expenditures. I have asked the Tesla finance team to comb through every expense worldwide, no matter how small, and cut everything that doesn’t have a strong value justification.

All capital or other expenditures above a million dollars, or where a set of related expenses may accumulate to a million dollars over the next 12 months, should be considered on hold until explicitly approved by me. If you are the manager responsible, please make sure you have a detailed, first principles understanding of the supplier quote, including every line item of parts & labor, before we meet.

I have been disappointed to discover how many contractor companies are interwoven throughout Tesla. Often, it is like a Russian nesting doll of contractor, subcontractor, sub-subcontractor, etc. before you finally find someone doing actual work. This means a lot of middle-managers adding cost but not doing anything obviously useful. Also, many contracts are essentially open time & materials, not fixed price and duration, which creates an incentive to turn molehills into mountains, as they never want to end the money train.

There is a very wide range of contractor performance, from excellent to worse than a drunken sloth. All contracting companies should consider the coming week to be a final opportunity to demonstrate excellence. Any that fail to meet the Tesla standard of excellence will have their contracts ended on Monday.

Btw, here are a few productivity recommendations:

– Excessive meetings are the blight of big companies and almost always get worse over time. Please get of all large meetings, unless you’re certain they are providing value to the whole audience, in which case keep them very short.

– Also get rid of frequent meetings, unless you are dealing with an extremely urgent matter. Meeting frequency should drop rapidly once the urgent matter is resolved.

– Walk out of a meeting or drop off a call as soon as it is obvious you aren’t adding value. It is not rude to leave, it is rude to make someone stay and waste their time.

– Don’t use acronyms or nonsense words for objects, software or processes at Tesla. In general, anything that requires an explanation inhibits communication. We don’t want people to have to memorize a glossary just to function at Tesla.

– Communication should travel via the shortest path necessary to get the job done, not through the “chain of command”. Any manager who attempts to enforce chain of command communication will soon find themselves working elsewhere.

– A major source of issues is poor communication between depts. The way to solve this is allow free flow of information between all levels. If, in order to get something done between depts, an individual contributor has to talk to their manager, who talks to a director, who talks to a VP, who talks to another VP, who talks to a director, who talks to a manager, who talks to someone doing the actual work, then super dumb things will happen. It must be ok for people to talk directly and just make the right thing happen.

– In general, always pick common sense as your guide. If following a “company rule” is obviously ridiculous in a particular situation, such that it would make for a great Dilbert cartoon, then the rule should change.

If there is something you think should be done to make Tesla execute better or allow you to look forward to coming to work more (same thing in the long term), please send a note to [redacted]

Thanks for being such a kickass team and accomplishing miracles every day. It matters. We are burning the midnight oil to burn the midnight oil.


A few of the things that struck me as I read this simple email from the boss are:

- short, concise and to the point

- easily understood at all levels of the company and across the supply chain

- lays out the schedule with goals, objectives and timelines

- praise without blame

- An accepting nod to reality. This memo accounts for realities inherent in the system

- A rocket scientist's touch with an ode to precision that matters

- His comments on meetings and communications are right out of our playbook and one we embraced from the moment I found my time compressed by forces beyond my control and had to take action to end the timesucks. To give you and idea, a day job that normally requires 8 hours or more often 12 hours when a ship is inport gets eaten alive when one gets underway and then also spends 4 to 8 hours on watch doing absolutely nothing related to the work that must be accomplished. When it became necessary to stand watch 16 to 20 hours/day, meetings I participated in were measured in seconds and usually consisted of me dropping off my notes/requirements for the rest of them as I passed through Planning Board for Training once a week. There were no other meetings per se. I imagine Musk feels the same sorts of pressure on his time and probably has some of the most able managers in this country working for him at many levels.

My final note concerns the U.S. Government labs. They violate every single principle layed out by Musk in the memo above. They have interminable meetings at which everyone gets to fill the timesuck, people are late to them, unprepared and unwilling to call it quits long beyond the point where everyone should have gone back to work. The labs persist in dogged pursuit of failure beyond the bounds of reason. They will cheerfully study to death anything and pour endless manhours and productivity into chasing a dead rabbit for weeks where there is no possibility of any return on that investment. It doesn't matter to them since they get paid just for showing up. You can see this sort of thing in the NASA approach to space flight and engineering and that of Space X. It could not be clearer that anyone seeking to press the frontiers of science and engineering should stay well clear of government labs.

Here is the list of Rethuglican scumbags who were in favor of impeaching the head of their Party on Monday: So we won’t forget the original Republican reprobates, they were, according to a Jan. 25, 2021 report here at The Epoch Times: Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) Sen. Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska) Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.) Sen. Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.)

The scum in bold face are the ones that decided to carry on with the People's Trial of the Century (2nd Trump impeachment) despite Sen. Rand calling them on their idiocy and lack of shame, knowledge, smarts, intelligence or acquaintance with reality. The rest of the old conteptibles decided to reconsider their support for the sham impeachment. It's interesting how the utter fraud known as Romney keeps getting elected as a rethuglican. I don't think he's ever drawn a single breath as an actual right thinking republican in his lifetime and I expect him to go to his grave without ever seeing the light.

This sort of thing always puts me in mind of Lord Randolph Churchill long ago when he addressed parliament. "Such a series of neglected opportunities, pusillanimity, combativeness at wrong moments, vacillation, dread of responsibility, repression and discouragement of hard-working followers, collusions with the Government, hankerings after coalitions, jealousies, commonplaces, want of perception on the part of the......., no one but he who has watched carefully and intelligently the course of affairs in Parliament, can adequately realise or sufficiently express; and if it be the case that Ministers have lost ground in the country, they have only themselves to blame, nor have they the slightest right to cherish feelings of resentment against the regular and responsible Opposition in the House of Commons."

We could use some more plain speakers in our House and Senate but I doubt we'll see any in my lifetime. To reach true greatness in such an endeavor requires that one treats the other as equals and listens to their arguements and hammers out concessions necessary to move good government forward. We don't have that anymore since the democrats in office listen to nobody except their friends at the NYT.

There was this from today's readings. It was an article having to do with the failure to compromise and hear both sides of any position. It seemed to champion squelching all white supremacists and seditionists and people like that while compelling them to listen to the just positions and statements of regular non-white supremacists who believe they have the sole and exclusive power to control the media/medium and limit contributions by those who hold apostate views. Kind of like now in the Senate and House. We who read history know all about the Great Compromises and Compromisers who did everything they could think of to keep the Union together even as the issue of slavery tore it apart. When you think about them now do you hate them for compromise or wish they'd been able to keep pulling it off until the issue could be settled peacefully without the horrendous casualties on both sides.

This is from Theo and I have seen enough of the left, particularly the peculiarly schooled elites that have argued vociferously that the American flag is an extremist symbol and triggers losers who share this country with real Americans, that I can see agents of the FBI and government going along with this.

Monday, January 25, 2021


I'm really tired of the left and their voices of sage denial of every American's rights as written in our Constitution. The latest bit to ire me comes from a former WSJ military columnist for 17 years named Ricks and it was his tweets that really inspire outrage.

When did the police and the military surrender their rights under the Constitution to protest the actions of their government? Just why is such protests by them condemned as right wing extremism when the media utterly fails to condemn the vicious tyrannical violence of the extreme left wing that is so beloved by all mainstream media shills and every single Democratic government official from the President on down?

I don't understand why the media's altogether imbecility in calling this an insurrection and deadly when it was a cop who shot a harmless unarmed rioter entering through a broken window and the other 4 people died from medical complications brought about by exercising their right to attend a rally to protest the theft of the election and had nothing to do with the break in at the capital or with Trump calling for any kind of insurrection or attack on government. The liars need to be called out every single time they lie.

It's also the time to end the drivel and lie that these morons always recite as they do something they know will gut the country or an institution with their stupid proclamation/justification, that "America’s strength is found in its diversity." If that is so, prove it. All I see is one institution after another torn apart by that idiotic belief.


Can you imagine if Joe Biden had a twitter account and tweeted like a real President?

Yeah, me neither. Jill would run out of words in no more than 2 days and we all know the retreads in the current doofus' cabinet by their slimetrails left over from their time in the Obama Theft Ring. Being the dummies they are, I know they'll try and we'll have, in short order, twits posted by a moron timestamped when the moron-in-chief is in the public eye at some event and manifestly not twitting and just barking about dog-faced-pony soldiers or some other dim-witted thing that idiot comes up with whenever he's off the teleprompter.

Leading to evening, with snow.

Wednesday, January 20, 2021


My plan to shed blood for others got derailed today despite the Red Cross sending me 4 messages on my phone over the last 3 days and actually calling me Monday evening to confirm for the fourth time that I would be at the appointment I set up to give blood in one of the nearby libraries. I conducted some business enroute to bleed for the cause and showed up a little early at the library to find an empty parking lot and locked building. I was a little concerned that this tiny hamlet had two libraries and perhaps I was at the wrong one but it turns out that while I was conducting business my phone was contacted by yet another minion of the Red Cross to inform me that somebody had shown up at the library positive with the dread virus and they had shut down and everybody went home.

All that planning and coordination for nothing.

But at least I didn't roust 25,000 National Guard soldiers out to stand idly about in the capital while other thousands of workers erected miles of steel fencing topped with razor wire in an effort to keep at bay the enormous crowds of loyal Biden voters who otherwise would have turned out to welcome their new masters to the White House. I watched the video of bison dimwit walking into the House chamber and saw that he was basically escorted by one of the capital police who didn't lift a finger to prevent him from making himself at home on Nancy's throne. I suspect that there won't be a trial since the truth will then all come out, just as it did with the pathetic first impeachment.
I will have to give some thought on how one donates blood in a worthwhile fashion in this time of madness and idiocy.


I'm glad I never invested in the facebook scam. I could see the writing on the wall a decade ago and while I created a page it was intended for one purpose and that never really happened so I would go months without looking at it or reading it. I also had some friends who I worked with for many years who were the soul of urbanity, charm and wit and yet turned into raving lunatics on facebook and went way into Trump and Bush derangement syndrome. Too many others went that way too. Here is an author who writes books I enjoy and his take now on facebook.

From what will likely be one of his last posts there:
Larry Correia

I'm paring down my FB presence. For the last week I've only been on for a brief time each day. I'll be taking that down even further. I'll be posting links when I blog for the people who stick around. There's a few groups I use here that I can't get the equivalent resource anywhere else yet (but I'm currently banned from posting in all groups anyway). And that's about it.

Basically, I'm done being a content creator for these censorious pieces of shit. Guys like me write stuff which gets shared hundreds of times and gets thousands of people commenting/participating. FB uses that free content to keep people corralled here so they can mine your data.

And then when us content creators get uppity, they fuck us over with impunity while their ideological allies get a pass. But then we come crawling back again and again, like abused trailer park wives, because we don't want to abandon the kids (as in the communities we spent the last ten years building before the relationship turned abusive).

I've stuck around because I didn't want to hurt my business/sales. This is still the best place to reach the most people the fastest. We made it that way. All us content creators foolishly moved over here back when Facebook promised to be one thing. Now that they've pulled a bait and switch, the content creators feel trapped.

In good conscience, this can't continue. I'm done helping these parasites. Facebook is trash. We all know it. We've all seen it. We're just here because of inertia.

Over the last decade, working with some stupendous moderators and great fans, we built a gigantic, thriving, fun, fan page here on Facebook. It's one of the bigger author fan pages on the internet where the author can still actually talk to his fans. Being able to interact there was great. But Facebook took that from me on a whim. They banned me from my own group because of what I MIGHT say.

However we prepared a fallback. There's another Monster Hunter Nation fan page over on MeWe. I'll be posting there instead from here on. If the fans want to keep posting here, great, but I won't be. I can't even post this to my own FB fan page, which illustrates just how screwed up this situation is.

We'll see how long that lasts, until Big Tech finds some way to squish every place they can't control.

My primary place will still be my blog, monsterhunternation dot com. There is an email newsletter there you can sign up for which is only book related stuff, no politics. I'm on MeWe under my same name. I was on Parler as @monsterhunter45, though I never really used it, and I have no idea if that place is going to survive. I'll be looking into other alternatives as well.

Used to be there were just strange happenings at the Circle K but things seem to have taken a turn for the worse. Now we have them busting out all over in Washington, DC, Washington, Oregon, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia, et al. This was the latest at Instapundit. I find it very peculiar.

Back when I was the Weapons Officer in one of the Navy's Mobile Security Units we had to follow the rules. One of the most important rules was that we did not put automatic weapons into the hands of untrained people and we didn't let them wander around without some means of providing adquate security for the actual weapons. So, you can imagine my surprise that the Army has detailed soldiers to one of the most dangerous cities in America and issued them unloaded weapons so the men and women can stand around cluelessly in the middle of riot season (never seems to end these days) while attractively adorned with a highly desirable M16 that is essentially any criminal's for the taking. That doesn't sound very smart.

The foolishness does not end with the Army and the state governors feeding troops into the empty and deserted nation's capital. No, there's more.

It doesn't seem to dawn on the dimwits that if 80% of the National Guard is white guys and thus 'the Guard doesn't look like America' it might have something to do with the unfailing failure of the dimwits and loser progrs and liberals to volunteer to serve their country. The Guard doesn't just invade other countries, it also responds to disasters and emergencies all over the United States and the world. Why aren't there more of the dimwits in the Armed Forces? I mean, I know what the answer is but the lackwits in the media don't seem to get it.

Kurt Schlichter made an excellent point in his article today. Why do we see pictures of the Guard sleeping rough on marble floors in the Capital? Did their officers fail to provide shelter for them and let's be honest, shelter in the national capital would at least include cots and sleeping bags.

Today I have an appointment to give blood to the Red Cross so at least when the shooting starts and the blood starts to flow I'll be able to say I did my part.

I wonder what part they view as the failure. They sure seem not to recognize inconsistancy when they see it or not as happens in most cases with these idiots. From our good friends at Forbes, again:

Honestly don't you think if the mask actually worked that those democratic dimwits wearing face masks would have been safe from the Wuhan Flu? Did they maintain their six feet of separation or did they cluster and clutch each other like frightened children? If 3 dimwits of the Socialist Party caught the virus, what about the unmasked Rethuglicans? Did they catch the virus too?

I'm sure it won't/doesn't matter but it will be fascinating, as usual, to see the dimwits propose and pass a law and then selectively enforce it against their enemies and never against themselves or their allies.

Google search It takes you straight here:
Click to embiggen.


I have taken recently to saving pdfs of some news files. There is a reason for this of course. It has to do with now realizing that the Left cannot help itself and some left wing social justice thug is always out there spilling the beans and laying out the left's plans to kill your right to speech, seize your guns, ban the sale of ammunition and destroy equal treatment for all under the law. It's also fun to mock them with their own words and deeds and they so often trumpet aloud how delighted they are to see other people thrown under the bus of social justice and 'equitable' treatment under the law. At any rate, Forbes screwed up somehow and actually published an interesting article that they quickly shoved down the memory hole and hope to make go away.

Here is the offending document

Naturally they failed to eliminate the document since the internet is forever until the world converts entirely to wholly natural ecologically sustainable unrealistc power at which point the servers will all be offline; starved of power and air-conditioning. Until then, we can still keep the parts of the left being sacrified in the dark alive by making copies and thrusting them back into the market place of ideas. The article starts out fairly simply. See for yourself how Jim Collins begins:

It is rare a that a public company stretches so far into the realm of abhorrent behavior, but Twitter's TWTR -2.1% actions last week revulsed me more than Union Carbide’s Bhopal, Boeing's BA -0.3% repeated failures with the 787 Max, J&J’s JILL +3.5% Tylenol scandal and really any other corporate action I have seen in my lifetime.

For a social media platform to censor a world leader—while still giving a voice to preachers of hate like Louis Farrakhan Iran's Ayatollah Khamenei and even O.J. Simpson—isn’t just wrong from a free speech perspective, it's actually terrible business. So, Twitter has shown little to no sequential growth in its user base of late (details below) but it is still valued like its Big Tech growth-y brethren. Twitter is not growing, it is shrinking, if measured versus the growth rate of the global economy, and that reduction will accelerate dramatically now that Twitter has offended every Conservative in America with its action to ban President Trump. Only fools in Congress and Big Tech apologists would think that Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act should apply to Twitter. It is a publisher, not a platform. Full stop.

So, first and foremost, here is how to deactivate your Twitter account. I used this excellent article from the Today show last week to kill my account. It took me more than half an hour, and making it difficult to leave is a classic Big Tech strategy for bolstering user numbers, but eventually I succeeded. It was worth it. I will never use that platform again.

But I do stocks, not activism, and even if a new type of conscious capitalism is my investment strategy for 2021, I still need to make some money. Twitter shares are plunging 7% in pre-market trading Monday, and the market will soon realize that this platform is going to shrink dramatically. Even on a good day, Twitter is a cesspool of hate speech, lies (including investment advice) and a “trending" algorithm that seems to have a remarkably consistent left-wing bias. I will not be the last person to cancel it. MORE

I checked Forbes home page and sure enough it shows that Jim Collins latest column is dated 22 December 2020 and not 11 January 2021.

It has well and truly been stuffed down the Forbes memory hole.

It is the sheer hypocrisy that bothers me the most. All the ratbags baying for blood and for Cruz and Hawley to resign their Senate seats and declaring the idiotic assault on the capital building the worst day in history don't appear to even be aware that they've reached the level of madness associated with the kind of people that were stuffed into Bedlam as quickly as they could be rounded up. Authors shrieking for Andy Ngo to be censored and demanding the book stores stop selling his book about anti-fa and the endless every night riots in Portland and Seattle make my teeth itch. Something has to be done.

It is gratifying to see that Jim Collins is a man of his word and he no longer exists on Twitter. It is probably time for every right thinking person to consider if they need to be on twitter. I'm tempted sometimes to get an account simply because it is a true eye into the minds of the deranged socialists and communists educators and politicans who simply cannot keep themselves from posting their every simple-minded idiotic thought using it but I worry that I might fall into the abyss myself. I think I'll stick with blogging.

We learned about KISS as young managers and leaders. We stopped saying it aloud once we understood just how it worked. Keep it Simple Stupid was one of the easiest steps of managing projects.

I watch the paralyzing conniptions Cuomo is putting New York through to get the vaccine and just laugh. Those idiots keep voting for idiots like him and Blasio to fail to get the job done while raking in millions of dollars in bribes donations.


Our little train seems to have jumped off the tracks. I'm not sure anything can set it right again short of another Civil War. I had also thought and hoped that President Lincoln had the last word on Civil Wars in this part of the world.
Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

I think we are heading away from the proposition that all men are created equal at warp speed these days. It doesn't get any stupider when people today cannot tell the difference between men and women, boys and girls and get all wrapped up in the excesses of their libido that probably should be left in the bedroom or at least at home where it belongs.

It's a terrible place where a plutocrat or two can totally squeeze the President of this country out of the market place of ideas and forbid him to speak or write as he wills because they control the media. It also sucks that the idiot that will take over as president has already vowed to scrap the 2nd Amendment. I would not be at all surprised to learn that there are now patriots thinking about how to take the war to the enemy of the Republic and all that it stands for.

I wrote this just now in response to some people cheering the silencing of the voice of 74 million American voters. I thought it was worth putting here as well in case it fails to make it through the moderators.

74 million Americans voted for Trump. Nothing about the events of last week has really changed the mind of a single one of them. Having all the ladies grasping their pearls and shrieking impeachment really doesn’t change the facts and it appears that people here are very intent on ignoring the facts. It was one of Bernie’s supporters who shot up the Republican softball team at practice and it was all of the scum leadership et al of the democratic party that spent most of the year supporting violence and attacks on Federal court houses and yet they walk away and everybody now pretends it neither happens nor matters. You see the problem of course. Trump didn’t say attack the Capitol and it doesn’t seem to matter to anybody that all he did was encourage his supporters to come to town and demonstrate against some egregious voting fraud. We can disagree about it but it’s hard to conceal fraud when thousands more votes are cast in a precinct than there are registered voters and yet they all get counted. It was no single example of fraud but only an idiot can look at how democrats behave both on and off camera and fail to conclude that there were a whole lot of party members devoted to cheating and gaming the election for all they could get away with.

Anyone watching our news service or reading the NYT or WP would be forced to leap to the conclusions they skillfully want you to leap to because their bias and failure to report the actual facts is kind of obvious to those familiar with the system.

Denying a platform shared by the world to people you hate with a madness akin to Bush Derangement Syndrome is over the top and 74 million Americans know that. Not one of us would have heard or read a word Trump said in office were it not for his ability to put his own words across to the voters and the people and bypass the gatekeeping dirtbags in the media. They just blew that up and every one of the tech companies jumped onboard in lockstep to flush everything 74 million Americans know down the memory hole.

Do you wonder that Biden picked a woman from a certain win state even though she polled something like dead last in the party debates and found almost no support from the democratic party voters? And now, by March she will probably be the President because Biden can’t hide in the basement anymore and it is going to be obvious that his brain has wandered away during and even before this campaign started and it only got worse as time went by. Let us not forget Obama’s immortal words.

"Yet searing, anonymously sourced quotes from Obama kept appearing through the race. One Democrat who spoke to Obama recalled the former president warning, “Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to fuck things up.” Speaking of his own waning understanding of today’s Democratic electorate, especially in Iowa, Obama told one 2020 candidate: “And you know who really doesn’t have it? Joe Biden.”


It’s going to be an interesting and historic 4 years. I’m kind of looking forward to it.

Congratulations America. You lost. President Trump was successful to the extent of winning the votes of half the electorate in this country because he had a direct link to his supporters and could communicate instantaneously with all of them via twitter. The tech overlords and communists at twitter have been throttling his conversations over their link for the last 6 months and now they've gone and pulled the plug altogether. There will never again be a platform that a conservative politician can use to go directly to the people and lay out his thoughts and strategies because in line with Conquest's Laws.


I am already sick to death of the hypocrites who run the party political in DC and the news pimps that follow them around lapping up every death defying denunciation of President Trump and of course, every single one of the bastards that voted for him in the last two elections. The yapsters don't seem to care that they have started to piss off the otherwise stayed and patient people who don't live woke lives and don't really care all that much about the pimps, poodles or black lives for that matter. After all, if none of them care that the murder rates in the democratic cities of America is skyrocketing as the blacks murder each other in new frenzies of hatred of other blacks, why should we care? The numbers are staggering and awful yet that never seems to make the news.

And now the secret to better living is to get on with it and go ahead and laugh out loud of the prospect of Biden, may he live forever and Harris in the White House being jammed up in everything they try to do by Pelosi and Schumer. I find it actually kind of wonderful that the democrats who firmly rejected Harris when she was running for president have essentially elected the least liked/favored/intelligent democratic presidential candidate. Gosh, won't they feel stupid when they wake up one day and find that she is running the country much the way she ran the state of California. They sure aren't very bright but then neither are their candidates.

I think we're about to find out how much damage a Republic can take before it turns into the Terror. I'm going to have to brush up on my reading on the history and events of the French Revolution and possibly what really happened to the Duma in Russia. History is often a guide for how things will progress given the same set of circumstances. It might also be instructive to read more on the Weimar period in Germany. I kind of skipped over that because I really didn't want to read how the Germans turned into ravening slathering beasts.

Can you believe some oxygen thief at twitter decided to censor the president because they disliked what he said so much they couldn't help but work their little asses off to expunge his remarks from their record? Yeah, I find it hard to believe too.

One of my favorite passages from Thucydides and The History of the Peloponnesian War. It pretty much defines what we're seeing right now in America. It's interesting that off all the books of antiquity this one survived more or less intact for over 2400 years. Probably the oldest book to remain in print that I know about and have read. I figure this section is worth reading as we close in on yet another massive case of election fraud in this presidential election year.

The Peloponnesians accordingly at once set off in haste by night for home, coasting along shore; and hauling their ships across the Isthmus of Leucas, in order not to be seen doubling it, so departed. The Corcyraeans, made aware of the approach of the Athenian fleet and of the departure of the enemy, brought the Messenians from outside the walls into the town, and ordered the fleet which they had manned to sail round into the Hyllaic harbour; and while it was so doing, slew such of their enemies as they laid hands on, dispatching afterwards, as they landed them, those whom they had persuaded to go on board the ships. Next they went to the sanctuary of Hera and persuaded about fifty men to take their trial, and condemned them all to death. The mass of the suppliants who had refused to do so, on seeing what was taking place, slew each other there in the consecrated ground; while some hanged themselves upon the trees, and others destroyed themselves as they were severally able. During seven days that Eurymedon stayed with his sixty ships, the Corcyraeans were engaged in butchering those of their fellow citizens whom they regarded as their enemies: and although the crime imputed was that of attempting to put down the democracy, some were slain also for private hatred, others by their debtors because of the moneys owed to them. Death thus raged in every shape; and, as usually happens at such times, there was no length to which violence did not go; sons were killed by their fathers, and suppliants dragged from the altar or slain upon it; while some were even walled up in the temple of Dionysus and died there.

So bloody was the march of the revolution, and the impression which it made was the greater as it was one of the first to occur. Later on, one may say, the whole Hellenic world was convulsed; struggles being every, where made by the popular chiefs to bring in the Athenians, and by the oligarchs to introduce the Lacedaemonians. In peace there would have been neither the pretext nor the wish to make such an invitation; but in war, with an alliance always at the command of either faction for the hurt of their adversaries and their own corresponding advantage, opportunities for bringing in the foreigner were never wanting to the revolutionary parties. The sufferings which revolution entailed upon the cities were many and terrible, such as have occurred and always will occur, as long as the nature of mankind remains the same; though in a severer or milder form, and varying in their symptoms, according to the variety of the particular cases. In peace and prosperity, states and individuals have better sentiments, because they do not find themselves suddenly confronted with imperious necessities; but war takes away the easy supply of daily wants, and so proves a rough master, that brings most men's characters to a level with their fortunes. Revolution thus ran its course from city to city, and the places which it arrived at last, from having heard what had been done before, carried to a still greater excess the refinement of their inventions, as manifested in the cunning of their enterprises and the atrocity of their reprisals. Words had to change their ordinary meaning and to take that which was now given them. Reckless audacity came to be considered the courage of a loyal ally; prudent hesitation, specious cowardice; moderation was held to be a cloak for unmanliness; ability to see all sides of a question, inaptness to act on any. Frantic violence became the attribute of manliness; cautious plotting, a justifiable means of self-defence. The advocate of extreme measures was always trustworthy; his opponent a man to be suspected. To succeed in a plot was to have a shrewd head, to divine a plot a still shrewder; but to try to provide against having to do either was to break up your party and to be afraid of your adversaries. In fine, to forestall an intending criminal, or to suggest the idea of a crime where it was wanting, was equally commended until even blood became a weaker tie than party, from the superior readiness of those united by the latter to dare everything without reserve; for such associations had not in view the blessings derivable from established institutions but were formed by ambition for their overthrow; and the confidence of their members in each other rested less on any religious sanction than upon complicity in crime. The fair proposals of an adversary were met with jealous precautions by the stronger of the two, and not with a generous confidence. Revenge also was held of more account than self-preservation. Oaths of reconciliation, being only proffered on either side to meet an immediate difficulty, only held good so long as no other weapon was at hand; but when opportunity offered, he who first ventured to seize it and to take his enemy off his guard, thought this perfidious vengeance sweeter than an open one, since, considerations of safety apart, success by treachery won him the palm of superior intelligence. Indeed it is generally the case that men are readier to call rogues clever than simpletons honest, and are as ashamed of being the second as they are proud of being the first. The cause of all these evils was the lust for power arising from greed and ambition; and from these passions proceeded the violence of parties once engaged in contention. The leaders in the cities, each provided with the fairest professions, on the one side with the cry of political equality of the people, on the other of a moderate aristocracy, sought prizes for themselves in those public interests which they pretended to cherish, and, recoiling from no means in their struggles for ascendancy engaged in the direst excesses; in their acts of vengeance they went to even greater lengths, not stopping at what justice or the good of the state demanded, but making the party caprice of the moment their only standard, and invoking with equal readiness the condemnation of an unjust verdict or the authority of the strong arm to glut the animosities of the hour. Thus religion was in honour with neither party; but the use of fair phrases to arrive at guilty ends was in high reputation. Meanwhile the moderate part of the citizens perished between the two, either for not joining in the quarrel, or because envy would not suffer them to escape.

Thus every form of iniquity took root in the Hellenic countries by reason of the troubles. The ancient simplicity into which honour so largely entered was laughed down and disappeared; and society became divided into camps in which no man trusted his fellow. To put an end to this, there was neither promise to be depended upon, nor oath that could command respect; but all parties dwelling rather in their calculation upon the hopelessness of a permanent state of things, were more intent upon self-defence than capable of confidence. In this contest the blunter wits were most successful. Apprehensive of their own deficiencies and of the cleverness of their antagonists, they feared to be worsted in debate and to be surprised by the combinations of their more versatile opponents, and so at once boldly had recourse to action: while their adversaries, arrogantly thinking that they should know in time, and that it was unnecessary to secure by action what policy afforded, often fell victims to their want of precaution.

Meanwhile Corcyra gave the first example of most of the crimes alluded to; of the reprisals exacted by the governed who had never experienced equitable treatment or indeed aught but insolence from their rulers—when their hour came; of the iniquitous resolves of those who desired to get rid of their accustomed poverty, and ardently coveted their neighbours' goods; and lastly, of the savage and pitiless excesses into which men who had begun the struggle, not in a class but in a party spirit, were hurried by their ungovernable passions. In the confusion into which life was now thrown in the cities, human nature, always rebelling against the law and now its master, gladly showed itself ungoverned in passion, above respect for justice, and the enemy of all superiority; since revenge would not have been set above religion, and gain above justice, had it not been for the fatal power of envy. Indeed men too often take upon themselves in the prosecution of their revenge to set the example of doing away with those general laws to which all alike can look for salvation in adversity, instead of allowing them to subsist against the day of danger when their aid may be required.
