Sarah Hoyt completely nailed the problem with the entire Trump vs DeSantis argument in twelve words

I STILL SAY NONE OF THIS MATTERS AS LONG AS FRAUD REMAINS

I suspect the primary reason Trump won is because Dems who had been stealing these states for years figured they didn’t have to that time around


I remember an old skit from the pre-python show “Do Not Adjust Your Set” where everybody in a criminal gang turned out to be an undercover policeman. I thought of this when I saw this piece at Hotair:

The FBI had more people in the Proud Boys than the Proud Boys

Clearly this Administration’s demand for violent opponents of this administration from the right clearly exceeds the supply. So the idea is “do it yourself”

And of course who cares about the norms of evidence when there are political opponents to defeat.


Former soldier Kurt Schlichter notes trust in the leadership of the Military continues to sink as the mission is now wokeness

Why the hell should anybody join the military right now? Don’t tell me that it is “to defend the United States” because that’s not what the military’s primary occupation appears to be anymore. Let’s review. We just had former admiral and current Biden Baghdad Bob, smarmy State Department Spokesperson John Kirby, announce that a “core part” of United States foreign policy is “LGBTQ+ rights.” You know, not a lot of normal people particularly want to suffer and bleed for that blue coastal fetish. Maybe they do in the rich liberal neighborhoods where Kirby’s masters live – actually, they are happy for your kids to suffer and bleed for it, not their own.

I guess Remy is right on China not needing to worry


At Don Surber’s substack today he notes how Trump played Allen Bragg and the media like a fiddle concerning an indictment. The best part of it is this:

NBC said, “Law enforcement agencies are prepping for a possible Trump indictment as early as next week.”

As early as next week!

Politico said to Trump, I’ll see your Tuesday and raise you a Monday.

Reuters reported early last Monday, “Former U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to be indicted by a grand jury late Monday or on Wednesday in a hush payments case involving a porn star, Politico reported on Monday, citing three unidentified people involved in the deliberations.”

The walls are closing in!

When the walls had not moved on Monday, Politico changed its story

It seemed that the media had plenty of sources ready to say the indictment was coming this day or that day or some other day but it just never came.

Yeah maybe Trump tried to game Bragg but every media outlet was ready quickly had sources to say something that didn’t come was coming.

amazing.


Finally former Magnificent Seven Writer Juliette Baldilocks Ochieng has the must read piece of the day on her substack on what she saw in CA during the early days of the “lockdowns” :

That first day when I went I out and headed east on I-10, I knew. 

I-10 West was pretty much at a dead stop. Taking brief glances over the median, I could see that the traffic consisted mostly of work trucks. Construction workers, gardeners, handymen, plumbers, pool service. Free agents and companies. You name the type of worker, and they were chilling at 0 MPH on the I-10 at 6:30 AM on February 3 March 19, 2020. Bumper to bumper. 

I-10 West leads to the 405, and obviously to all points west of that like Santa Monica, Venice Beach, and Beverly Hills. And the 405 North leads to cities where people of means live: entertainment professionals, actors, producers and the like – in other words, rich people. So, all these fine, working gentlemen were heading out to service the houses of these people – to cut their grass, to service their swimming pools, to fix any construction and plumbing issues, and so on. You have to remember how afraid everyone was back then – that some kind of new, virulent disease was destined to kill us all. But the rich did not believe it, and neither did I.  

Juiliette might not be writing here but she’s just as worth worth reading as she’s always been.. Go over and subscribe if you haven’t yet.

A lot to do this morning so three quick things.

If you’re the least bit of a Trek fan you will want to take 20 minutes and watch Ladd Ehlinger’s bit on Star Trek 2 as the counter Trek that saved the franchise.

I can’t like and subscribe as I’m banned from Youtube but if you’re in a position to do so you can.

The Don Surber blog is still up but they’re already digging out old posts to give his strikes on (basically how they killed me on Youtube) but his substack account has been putting out winners daily including today’s post: “Invest in New Mexico, not Ukraine” which produced my pick for the “Quote of the Day”

Oddly enough, Biden’s sanctions pushed Putin to seek Xi’s help, reversing Nixon’s successful strategy of pitting the USSR against Red China. But then again, Biden has been wrong on every foreign policy for 50 years.

I say oddly because I do not know if this was the true goal of Biden because I don’t know who offered the bigger bribe.

Don is definitely worth a subscription if you can afford it you might consider a paid one.

Finally I don’t do a lot of tip jar shaking and given the state of DaTipJar it shows but let me instead make a pitch in a different direction.

Old Friend Zilla could use a buck or two. We’re hoping the bring here back here and she is trying to very slowing rebuild a life that has, to put it mildly, been shaken up

The tip jar has not gone up on the new site but it works fine on her old one so if you can top over and drop a fiver in there I’d consider it a favor but not as big a favor as she would .

In Tyrie Nichols the MSM/Left has finally found a case of black on black violence that they find newsworthy enough to publicly disapprove of


There are a lot of fine blogs and substack accounts out there worth making a free or cash subscription to, (I humbly suggest considering mine as I have writers to pay) but the best case I’ve seen made by someone to hit the button lately has come from Don Surber this morning with his spectacular piece on the better of the John Kennedys who served in the Senate:

  • “You will never win—never—the uber-woke sweepstakes. I understand that the pressure to run that race is fierce. You will never win it. Nothing you do will ever be enough. The uber-woke people in positions of power in this town think America was evil when it was founded and it’s even more evil today. You’re not going to convince them otherwise.”

He spoke that truth to power at a hearing on September 22, 2017, to Charles W. Scharf of Wells Fargo & Company, Brian Thomas Moynihan of Bank of America, Jamie Dimon of JPMorgan Chase & Co., Jane Fraser of Citigroup, William H. Rogers Jr. of Truist Financial Corporation, Andy Cecere of U.S. Bancorp and William S. Demchak of PNC Financial Services Group.

If that line alone doesn’t get you loving Senator Kennedy nothing will and if this piece doesn’t get you to subscribe to Mr. Surber’s substack nothing will


This week Project Veritas put out what was likely the single most important video it ever did, catching a Pfizer exec going on about mutating the COVID etc. It’s the type of expose that can change the narrative.

Within two days Youtube banned the video and gave him a strike. It “violated their guidelines” not because it was false, but because it was true.

This is going to cost people their lives.

One must under the rules of Christianity love your enemies but as Youtube is a corporation and not a person I don’t think I’m violating rules by awaiting the day of the company’s fall with some anticipation.

Remember once upon a time AOL ruled the roost too.


Went to the local comic store today to pick up Groo and Usagi Yojimbo. The only two comics I still read new. Their creators eighty five year old Sergio Argones (Groo) and sixty nine year old Stan Sakai (Usagi) have been doing their respective two comics for over 45 years (Sakai actually got his start lettering Groo and still does). I don’t go there much as there is a large sign on the door nothing CDC mask recommendations and suggesting people wear them (when I went yesterday nobody had one on) which turns me off but there was one thing worth noting.

Back in the 1980’s when I owned a comic store there were a couple of reprint series out there (Marvel Tales immediately comes to mind) but today it seems every third comic featured is a reprint of a comic from the 60’s or 80’s or 90’s.

Comic stores have apparently figured out they need something other than woke to sustain a business.

Still highly recommend both Groo & Usagi


Finally Yesterday I was watching an old Cary Grant Movie Father Goose (1964) a comedy about a drunken coast watcher who gets stuck with a 30 something year old woman and a bunch of kids from a girls school.

It’s a quaint movie but I don’t recommend watching it right after watched Mark Felton’s audio about the treatment of captive women by the Japanese in World War 2.

The movie gets very serious when you consider what happens if they’re caught.

I was at work and away from any kind of radio or TV when Damar Hamlin went down during the Bengals/Bills game.

When I got home I went to youtube to look at the video but what was pushed up front wasn’t the hit, which I would have expected to be front and center as a trending popular choice, but a video of a doctor, complete with labeled charts insisting that this particular hit was just at the right time in the cycle of the heartbeat to cause this issue and INSISTING that nobody should speculate about vaccines.

Don Surber is invoking the 24 hour rule which is sensible but this Doc obviously had this up and ready within 4 hours and youtube coincidently made it a point to promote it to me last night.

I can see why, you can have all the hashtags you want about “died suddenly” even on the new free to speak twitter but nothing gets the attention of the public then an athlete in seemingly peak shape suddenly collapsing in front of one of the largest TV audiences of the week after a hit that looked like nothing special.

No word on if the Doc has any comment on the sudden death of 38 year old former Jaguars guard Uche Nwaneri from acute heart failure. I presume nobody hit him.


Don Surber notes quite the coincidence of Joe Biden’s latest vacation to the Virgin Islands corresponding with this:

After successfully settling a $105 million lawsuit against the estate of Jeffrey Epstein in early December, U.S. Virgin Islands Attorney General Denise N. George then filed a lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase saying the “bank knowingly provided and pulled the levers through which recruiters and victims were paid.”   

Attorney General Denise N George has just been fired.

Given this and the democrats sudden public support for drag queens shaking their genitals in the faces of kids It seems more and more likely that the entire party is simply a grooming gang.


Apparently Mastodon, the platform that a lot of high profile leftists and journalists migrated to after leaving twitter is according to this piece, a haven for child porn but does their best to hide that fact.

See my final comment from the previous block for my thoughts.


There was a conversation about electric cars on twitter than I joined making the following point:

Like COVID, ESPTEIN etc if people were just straight about things it would be much better. Given time electric cars may overcome their limitations, after all the internal combustion engine of 2022 is far superior to that of 1968, but they’re not there yet.


Apparently the push to make us panic about Monkeypox now called M-Pox has fizzled as no about of fearmongering or spin was able to convince people that a person who doesn’t engage in either

  1. Gay sex with a man
  2. Sex with someone who engages in gay sex with men

will catch it.

Oh well I’m sure they’ll manage to unload the various vaccines over time.
