Those were the instructions the head of scammers at the fake Climate Research Unit at East Anglia gave his minions as he tried and did bolster the fading hockey stick dream of that other scammer who invented the myth of global warming by cherry picking the data he used. He never has identified the essentials of the science behind his myth-making lies but never mind. We had the global warmists hiding the actual decline in Earth's temperature. We are faced again with repugnant and stupid liars trying their very best (a very poor best) to hide the mental decline in a president who was never all that clever or smart to begin with. Now they (the news media and democrats) go way far out of their way-- to Mars even, to hide the fact that Biden has the mental agility and acuity of a 5 year old without the vocabulary. If there was ever a public figure utterly lost to reason it is Biden and he proves it every time he speaks in public and forgets to read the words written for him to say on the teleprompters surrounding him.


I kind of left Peggy Noonan in my wake several years ago. She leaped enthusiastically over the shark and headed for nowhere as a columnist who could call the future or even deal with the present. Her latest column in the WSJ has these words which I find prophetic and sadly amusing. She won't get it.
“The pandemic has changed everything.” It has. Never have we needed visionaries more than now—people in politics, and out, who have an outsize creativity and a deep knowledge of human beings, who can come up with reasons people want to be here, have to be here, would be happy nowhere else.
There was a man for these times who carved out a unique niche for being a bold visionary with outsize creativity and a deep knowledge of human beings. His name was Donald Trump. Try and get Peggy to wrap her head around that.

Look forward to them. I assure that I am. It will not be too many months now, I give it one, and we'll hear from those faultless pickers of presidents that they elected a dud with dementia and he now has to be put out to pasture. At that moment they seal the deal for Trump's second presidency and a complete Republican wipeout of Congress in the next two elections at least. Right thinking people will be able to simply say, "perhaps you dimwitted morons that elected a man who clearly had dementia and couldn't find his way out of a closet should have no vote in any future elections because you are clearly too stupid to vote. Best of all, we can tell them that the press and other media who are well known for their balanced and thoughtful investigations of everything don't come off looking very bright or useful since they ALL completely failed to notice that Joe Biden couldn't outthink a 5 year old.


Many of us have had them. They are that significant swerving departure from your plan that upsets or changes your life unexpectedly. I don't think we normally count in advance on those years when surprising things happened good or bad that might have left us scratching our heads a little during and after the facts. I would have to count the last 10 years or so as 'crazy years' and not at all of the good kind. I really stay out of the trivial trials of politics but I think the wheels are coming off now for us, the country and the world.

Only by dint of the most massive universal coverup has the world failed to notice the wheels wobbling violently over the last few years. It's not just us people, it's the rest of the world.

A virus so clearly weaponized was released on the world as if it might be a cure for a problem none of us talk about. Isn't it amazing how the top US CDC researcher funded the chinese lab to turn out COVID and isn't it curious how it is almost tailored to kill the elderly? You know the ones I'm talking about, the ones with most of the money, resources and goods not owned directly by the 20 wealthiest men in the world? You know the elderly right? They're the ones that absorb something like 90% of all health care spending in the United States. They're about the last ones that can actually afford it. Those that most needed help from their families to get their affairs in order were denied all human contact with family members which leaves their estates in the hands of probate and suchlike. You see how the wealthy escaped to the free world before the doors were slammed on the remainder of us. Does that remind anyone of what happened to the Jews who failed to make it or didn't try to get out of Europe before 1939?

An enormous illegal immigrant workforce here that has kept wages stagnant for decades even as the cost-of-living creeps up.

Every institution in this country has been taken over lock stock and barrel by the barking mad left who have so confused the nation's youth that they can't tell what sex they are and make it the passion of their lives to ensure they maximize your pain as they deal with their silliness and idiocy.

High Schools turning out kids that can't read, write, do math or think. I just read that public high schools in many areas are turning out black students with under 20% able to read above the 3rd grade level. Their math skills are even worse. What does a first world society have to offer people this ignorant, stupid and ill-informed? What can they possibly contribute?

Can you imagine any sane democratic government based on our Constitution allowing tycoons to order the President to shut up? That it would then stand idly by and not even offer a tut tut ole man that simply isn't done here? That would tell the rest of the world he lied and connived and investigated him since the day he took office and FOUND NOTHING?

I was going to go on and on but it's too depressing.

I listened a lot to the music of the past. It raises memory but also puts it to sleep and tucks it into bed. My reach exceeds my grasp. I make a real effort to forget some music. It kind of forces an old man to raise new music up and hear it for the first time and no, I'm not talking classics. There is still and always will be music I hear that takes me right back to Paris or San Diego when I was a bachelor knight. Pretty harmless. To evoke is the compelling magic of music. Sometimes it is better to let all the sleeping dragons doze away the afternoon. I used to listen to talk radio driving up the 5. It was a 50 mile ride home and John and Ken could wile away the hours. Driving up the 5 to the ends of the earth was harder. FM range doesn't compare with AM range. I enjoyed many of the hours when wossname used to talk the night away and sometimes have the deer in the backseat safe in his bunker somewhere near Las Vegas. My music has changed just now to the one from Fort Riley long ago when I misheard the words. I frequently do that.

The lashing of the white men will not continue anymore. I've had enough. Let American Thinker explain it.

The books were there for the reading as I grew up, even spending many nights at home away from home, where the books were in their seried ranks on the book shelves in the back room. They were all over the house to be honest but still the back room resonated with the awesome power of bookness. The shelves were filled with books for boys since they dominated that place long ago. I'm not sure what my mother read growing up there but I suspect The Chestry Oak was one such. War, pilots, submarines, it was all there for the taking. Not the bitter glory stuff, that was for later. We didn't read Leon Uris until we were in the 3rd grade and Exodus was a book one didn't put down.

I currently have them all. The ones I need to read. Lee's Lieutenants and the hundred other books that made up the professional reading of a West Point man prepping to fight the Cold War even as the Korean War raged around him.

One could learn so much from reading history. I'm surprised nobody does it anymore.

When one thinks about it, some people have been dodging the whole african american is black thing for generations.... Yep, that's right. The USN trumped them all when it chose for its very SS looking uniforms, navy blue. See what they did there? Yep, another horse of a different dark bay color.

Here it is the depth of winter and when I was asked if I wanted to go out into the bright light of a snow swept day my answer was immediate and positive. I had thought about calling my brother in California but I'm sure he'd tell me it dropped into the upper 50's and he and the family were sheltering at home in Albany. I decided that the best bowl of amazing French Onion Soup plus a 3 meat pizza 20 miles away in Berea was the way to go. Off we went. It went as well as it always does, except that one time..... they were holding a private party and we were forced to eat Thai next door, dammit.

The TV was on for what value that adds I no longer know. It might have been a BB roundup or pure all commercials all the time. I'm sure we both felt that every time we looked over it was some dumb ass commercial. Hey! Rozzers! I couldn't tell you the name/type/brand of a single product you paid millions to advertise. Buy some smart advertising and mix it up a little why don't you?

The drive home was an advert for knowingly getting a little lost. One simply doesn't care anymore, given a full tank of gas, limited mileage before running into a lake or Michigan,(God help you) or PA, and again, (God help you). One way or another we'll find our way to the major lake lying to our north and we can always get home from there. It doesn't much hurt that all the rivers, streams, brooks, creeks, burns, etc flow north leading one inevitably to the metroparkcentralis and barring your arrival in the places you really will survive better never going to, your finding your way home is assured, provided you live roughly where we do.

The Congress tossed a woman marginally less offensive than Maxine Waters or most of the black Congressmen, some of whom are unaware that Pacific islands don't flip over when overloaded with Marines. They decided she was too #%@ something for the job. Mind you, they didn't find her too stupid for the job, just not their loyal focused minion. Poor bitch will now be stripsearched every time she tries to appear on the floor to check her for nail bombs, plastique or EFP. My advice? Check the shoes.

I use 'focus' from time to time. It's in a book I think worth the reading. Fire Upon The Deep by Vernor Vinge. It tends to make clear the next step expected of us by the progressive thieves.

Senate impeaches President!!!!!

Biden forced to step down as Senate impeaches President. Poor benighted bastards didn't know that there is only one president and the only one that can be impeached is the sitting president. Democrats violently angry now and claim Trump put up very weak defense and demand he be impeached.....again. Harris is violently opposed and asks, "have those stupid morons learned NOTHING!???"

I just wrote on a neighbor's blog,

"triumph like a Nazgul," about a family member in California.

I do hope not.

The sea is calm tonight. The tide is full, the moon lies fair Upon the straits; on the French coast the light Gleams and is gone; the cliffs of England stand, Glimmering and vast, out in the tranquil bay. Come to the window, sweet is the night-air! Only, from the long line of spray Where the sea meets the moon-blanched land, Listen! you hear the grating roar

Of pebbles which the waves draw back, and fling, At their return, up the high strand, Begin, and cease, and then again begin, With tremulous cadence slow, and bring The eternal note of sadness in.

Sophocles long ago Heard it on the Ægean, and it brought Into his mind the turbid ebb and flow Of human misery; we Find also in the sound a thought, Hearing it by this distant northern sea.

The Sea of Faith Was once, too, at the full, and round earth’s shore Lay like the folds of a bright girdle furled. But now I only hear Its melancholy, long, withdrawing roar, Retreating, to the breath Of the night-wind, down the vast edges drear And naked shingles of the world.

Ah, love, let us be true To one another! for the world, which seems To lie before us like a land of dreams, So various, so beautiful, so new, Hath really neither joy, nor love, nor light, Nor certitude, nor peace, nor help for pain; And we are here as on a darkling plain Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight, Where ignorant armies clash by night.

It's the last line that summons Loki and Thor.


Oh, well. I didn't think Space Force could handle Admirals and bossy captains anyway.
WASHINGTON — It’s now official: There will be no admirals in the U.S. Space Force.

The Space Force on Jan. 29 revealed its new rank structure for officers and enlisted personnel. The service for the most part is adopting the U.S. Air Force ranks.

The only change the Space Force made is in four categories of Air Force enlisted ranks called “airman.” The equivalent ranks in the Space Force will be “specialist.” All the officers’ ranks stay the same as the Air Force, said the Jan. 29 memo. The new ranks are effective Feb. 1.

I guess the Space Force will have to muddle through without any input from the Navy or Army or Marines who have limited to no space background or technology at stake in space. As I recall, it took the Army and Werner von Braun to get the Air Force into space. They cleverly hid all that backbiting by creating the precursor to NASA and hiding the names of the guilty. When the USAF got desperate enough to finally build a real ballistic missile they got a Brigadier, gave him a budget and told him to head to the hills to make it happen without the internecine help from his helpmeets in the Pentagon and DC. They'd be well advised to stay the hell away from Huntsville though. MDA was run by an ignorant thug for too many years for it to be a one-off. I suspect that line of 'thought' still runs deep in Huntsville.


President Biden orders three USN Carrier Battle Groups to North Arabian Sea to conduct massive search for missing Osama bin Laden who Biden believes is still swimming around out there waiting for rescue after falling overboard from one carrier conducting operations off the Afghanistan coastline. work with it, we're talking biden and other dim and ignorant democrats who don't actually know where Afghanistan is beyond, "it's not on this side of the Hudson."


Truth so obvious a turtle could see it even though twas perched on K2.
