Quote of the day: And a appropriate quote for the day it is.

It all combined into a vast fog of disappointment that obscured the plain and simple fact that while government employees were working 24 hours a day printing more money, nobody anywhere was printing more time.

Thorium Reactors, interesting to some, boring to most.

Why didn’t the US Government promote Thorium in 1945?  Because you can’t make a bomb with it.  The only Thorium reactor in the world today is in China, using American designs from the 1950’s.

Cancer in the DA offices.

LA’s New Soros Prosecutor is the OG Soros DA — the Guy Who Pitched Soros the Idea of Destroying the United States Through a Communist Corps of DAs

—Ace

Vanguard.

Over the last year or two, the plague of “Soros DA’s” has become somewhat well-known across the country. Philadelphia’s Larry Krasner was sworn in then immediately cleaned house; Chicago’s Kim Foxx inexplicably dropped charges against Jussie Smollett; St. Louis’ Kim Gardner charged the McCloskey’s for defending their own home against a Black Lives Matter mob; and Contra Costa County, California’s Diana Becton issued a guidance mandating that her deputies determine whether someone “needed” an item before they could be charged with looting.Let’s not forget San Francisco’s Chesa Boudin, son of Weather Underground bombers who was raised by Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorn, who looks the other way for most crimes.

Boudin was elected after longtime San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon decided to move “home” to Los Angeles and challenge incumbent DA Jackie Lacey, who wasn’t quite radical enough for LA’s burgeoning Black Lives Matter scene. What most people don’t know is that Gascon is the Original Soros DA, and that it was at Gascon’s urging that Soros plunged the first $50 million into what I’ll dub the Progressive Prosecutor Project — through the ACLU, which funded shadow groups to move the money through, of course.

Are we allowed to mention facts like this or nah?

Spoiler: the answer is “no,” we’re not allowed to criticize Nazi collaborator George Soros or his communist, anti-American DAs.

In fact, the ABC news station in LA just ran a critical piece about this Gascon bacteria.

After threats from Gascon, they pulled the critical article and put up a puff piece in its place.

Jennifer van Laar reported that Gascon had offered a “sweetheart” deal to a gang-member murderer.

ABC reported on that sweetheart deal — but Gascon began making threats against ABC behind the scenes.

And then they memory-holed their report.

Donald Trump is the essential man.

Commentary: Donald Trump is The Essential Man – Tennessee Star

by Bruce Bawer

Once upon a time, there was a president called Ronald Reagan – a model of decency and probity, at once great and self-effacing, who, above all, was truly in love with America and saw it as his sacred mission to preserve and strengthen American freedom. During his eight-year tenure, he revitalized the U.S. economy, snapped us out of what his disastrous predecessor had referred to as “our malaise,” and helped bring down the Soviet Union.

Then he walked off into the sunset. And for the next seven presidential terms, we had to make do with mediocrity and self-dealing. Both parties were dominated by crime families – sorry, I mean political dynasties. The Bushes were uninspiring. The Clintons were pure slime.

The 1960s had introduced a toxic counterculture rooted in reflexive oikophobia. It had grown apace ever since. The Bushes did nothing to resist it; Clinton himself was very much a part of it. In a famous speech at the 1992 Republican convention, Pat Buchanan warned that America was in a “culture war” – a “war for the soul of America.”

He was right. But he identified the primary enemy as gays. In fact, the culture war had nothing to do with gays. It was about, among other things, professors who praised Marx and kids who wore Che t-shirts. After 9/11, it was also about people who, not knowing a thing about Islam, whitewashed it and claimed that America had deserved the jihadist attacks.

Buchanan’s speech was a great gift to the counterculturists: it enabled them to paint the GOP as a party not of freedom but of bigotry. He wasn’t alone. There were plenty of Republican politicians who, instead of being clear about the nature of the culture war, lazily played the anti-gay card.

Meanwhile the real enemy within grew, all but unopposed.

Then along came Barack Obama. He was the enemy within. His memoir Dreams from My Father suggested that he had far more affection for Kenya and Indonesia than for America. His mentor, Jeremiah Wright, was a virulent America-hater.

During the 2008 campaign, Obama posed as a healer of America’s oldest wounds. He turned out to be a divider. Soon after taking office, he ran off to Cairo to tell pretty lies about Islam.

In the years that followed, the enemy within cemented its control over large swathes of academia, big business, and the news media. Poisonous academic notions about group identity, victimhood, oppression, and white supremacy went mainstream.

And instead of using his unique position as America’s first black president to resist all this, Obama encouraged it.

A Hero Rides In – On an Escalator

All seemed lost. Then Donald Trump came down that shiny escalator, introducing a campaign with a simple slogan: “America First.”

At first his candidacy looked like a stunt. But his performance in the primaries opened our eyes. For the first time since Reagan, we saw a worthwhile alternative to cowardly careerist politicians with no convictions and no cojones – pols who were, at worst, aggressively pushing a divisive, anti-American agenda and, at best, quietly overseeing America’s managed decline.

Media commentators, themselves products of the post-1960s counterculture, pronounced Trump a buffoon and a vulgarian; millions of Americans, however, looked at him and saw a potential savior – a real warrior who shared their love of America and who, it seemed, might just win the culture war.

Like Reagan, Trump actually seemed to care about ordinary Americans. The Bushes and Clintons had gotten rich as “public servants”; Trump, a billionaire, stood only to lose money by throwing his hat in the ring.

A longtime New York fixture, he was famous for hiring smart people regardless of their sex, race, or sexual orientation. He supported same-sex marriage long before Obama or Hillary Clinton did. During the campaign, unlike GOP candidates before him, he never came close to gay-bashing. Yet the Left portrayed him as a bigot, and veteran GOP bigshots accused him, hilariously, of having sullied a party that had once oozed dignity and class.

Meanwhile, Obama, Clinton, and Biden conspired to destroy the Trump campaign and then the Trump presidency with lies about nefarious foreign ties. In fact, it was Hillary and Biden, all along, who had the nefarious foreign ties.

The four years that followed Trump’s inauguration were crowded with triumphs, domestic and foreign, of the sort that no president in our lifetimes—not even Reagan—had dreamed of achieving. And every day, the media, in lockstep, deep-sixed those triumphs while bashing Trump.

Quite simply, over the course of the Trump years, what had once been the counterculture, became the dominant culture, and went mad. Word went out that everything was racist; that there are dozens of genders and that you are whatever sex you say you are; and that police departments should be defunded. The death of a previously obscure Minneapolis thug led to months of destructive riots all over the country, and even abroad.

The culture war had finally come to a head. In George Floyd, the former counterculture had found its unworthy martyr. In Trump, law-abiding Americans had found their hero. And the enemies within had shed their mainstream masks and were doing everything they could to bring the president down.

A Lone Hero

During his presidency, Trump has seemed almost to be acting alone, with members of his own administration and party lined up against him. Except in the final days of Richard Nixon’s presidency, when have we ever seen a president so alone? When in recent American history, except during the New York mayoralty of Rudy Giuliani, had so positive a turnaround been so obviously attributable to a single individual?

Yes, the idea of a country being saved by a single “great man” can be dangerous. In the last century, it led to the dictatorships of Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and several others. But facts are facts: Trump, today, is America’s essential man. Though surrounded by enemies in the White House, on Capitol Hill, and all over Washington, he’s enjoyed an unprecedented level of public support.

Never – and this assertion seems unarguable – have so many Americans loved their president so much, or trusted him so implicitly, or been so certain of his genuine concern for their welfare. Watching Trump rallies on TV, I’ve often found myself thinking: if only Adams or Jefferson or Franklin could see this!

Because this wasn’t by any means a Communist-style cult of personality, with people feeling scared not to cheer. This was the real thing – a good thing – a democratically elected leader being applauded by ordinary citizens from every imaginable kind of background for keeping his promises and for serving his people.

Uniformly, the counterculture-bred “journalists” who “reported” on these peaceful patriotic events depicted the participants as scum. Then, toward the end of Trump’s term, cities around America erupted in violent riots by members of what once would have been called the counterculture, and the same “journalists” depicted those participants as heroes.

Finally, the ultimate culture war atrocity: a manifestly stolen election.

The theft was breathtaking in the insane lust for power, and the contempt for opponents, that made it possible. It was stunning in its brazenness. Which made sense: for decades, as it had advanced apace – in what has been called “the long march through the institutions” – the counterculture had grown used to easy conquests. It apparently hadn’t expected much in the way of resistance this time, either.

The whole scenario is quite clear. They’re just like schoolyard bullies. Because Trump supporters are honest, good-mannered, and peaceable, they take us for wimps.

And alas, some old-line Republican members of Congress, who at this point are perhaps all that’s standing between us and a Biden presidency, are wimps – prepared to roll over to maintain a factitious peace.

The majority of our Supreme Court justices – who, against all logic, denied that Texas has standing to challenge the presidential vote in another state – are wimps, too.

But we can’t let their passivity prevail. We need to make it clear that, peaceable though we are, we’re not wimps – and we’re not suckers. In this climactic battle of our decades-long culture war, we need to win – or be prepared to lose in ways beyond imagining.

Quote of the Day from 2012

Someday us old folks will look back and remember a time when mail got delivered twice a day, a high school education could get you through life, factories in the USA made the products we used, and our health care and military were second to none.

All of that is true.  Then the Democrats destroyed our country.

Resist!

First in Nashville, where a business went to the trouble to manufacture and install this on their front door.

Then, in good ol’ Stockton, CA., the state, seeking to oppress a small business in that town, found out to their dismay, I’m sure, that the local authorities would not help them.  This includes the local DA, who will not prosecute.
Pomp Hair Salon in Stockton California was raided by state officials who cited the salon for continuing operations [media story here].  The subsequent misdemeanor citation comes from the state.  However, local law enforcement and county prosecution say they will not participate in the enforcement mechanism.
This creates an unusual dynamic as the state has threatened to revoke licenses for the salon and the workers; but what “enforcement” action could the state undertake?

It is so much easier to enforce the law on people who are natural law abiders.  Enforced on people who habitually pay the taxes and professional fees that fund the pensions these police enjoy.

The rock solid pillars of the community, and indeed the state itself.
  Already many local police entities, recognizing this dynamic, are, like here, refusing to obey, but the authorities more distant from the daily life we all lead are still attempting to enforce compliance. But the day will come, if the idiot politicians have their way, when folk like those you see here, and that includes this policeman, turn and bite back, and when that day comes…

Most of the local, state and federal governments have become nothing more than parasites… parasites that think they are more important than the host.

Time for the bug spray.

The President should fire Fauci.

Admission he lowballed estimated herd immunity threshold follows earlier acknowledgement he misled on efficacy of masks.

When pressed in June on why he had initially argued against masks, Fauci said that the public health community was “concerned that it was at a time when personal protective equipment, including the N95 masks and the surgical masks, were in very short supply.”

“And we wanted to make sure,” Fauci continued, that the scarce PPE was reserved for “the people

He’s a liar and a sleazy politician.

A whine about wine.

“All of a sudden, Ms. Duke, a vocal critic of ‘mommy wine culture’ and a member of the Sober Mom Squad, a virtual community created during the pandemic, was fielding questions…”

“… about alcohol from friends and acquaintances. Was two bottles of wine a night a bit over the top? How much was too much?… ‘No one is talking about glasses of wine anymore,’ said Ms. Duke, who works for a dog grooming app and lives in Manhattan with her two teenage sons. ‘People are measuring by the bottle,’ she continued. ‘That scares me. I know too many women who went from one or two glasses to two bottles of wine to vodka in your coffee cup.’…
‘Being inside all these months was extremely confining,’ said [Natalie Silverstein, a marketing manager in media who lives in the East Village]. ‘I needed something to relax. I looked forward to drinking because it broke the barrier.’ For her, a glass of wine signaled the end of the day. Anxious, tired and stressed, it helped her sleep. It also helped her socialize and connect. ‘In New York, drinking was an activity. In isolation it helped us gather,’ she said.
‘My team would do Zoom happy hours, and everyone had wine or a cocktail. That became habitual. It felt like drinking was the one thing holding us up.'”

She works for a dog grooming …APP?  How the hell do you groom a dog with an app?
