One of the things that has really been revealed by the war in Ukraine is just how weak and unready the Russian Army is. Moreover a lot of Russians were in favor of the war in Ukraine when it looked like it would be a cakewalk to retake the territory that until the breakup of the Soviet Union was part of Russia proper since the days of Napoleon, but once it became clear that it would involve actually fighting, actual causalities and a mobilization the whole pride thing went out the window.

It’s amazing how much harder war is when people are willing to shoot back rather than roll over. I would not be surprised if this lesions the fear of China’s untested military as well.


It’s a tough call for Ukraine when it comes to how the war ends.

They have a good point that they don’t want to reward Russia with any gains but the longer the war goes on the more likely Putin decides to play the tactical nuke game. Ukraine can likely get the best deal it could get right now but in the words of Lincoln if they consider this war for a purpose they see no reason to end it before that purpose is achieved.

Since it’s their blood that being spilled it’s their call, as long as I don’t have to keep paying for it.


This story via Gateway Pundit made me smile:

I predict that in the woke sweepstakes Muslims trump gays, drag queens and transsexuals’ for two reasons:

  1. The Muslim population of the US continues to grow
  2. There have been unfortunate and unhealthy consequences for those who defy those communities

One of the reasons why Sicilian American’s like myself don’t mind people associating us with the mob is it make people less likely to try to mess with us (also we don’t give a damn what others think). With the reputation of Islam backed up by 30 years of shall we call them “incidents” I suspect school committees are going to think twice before they mess with them.


Sometime in the next month we are likely going to see a pivot in tech companies.

Once they decide they can not stop the GOP from winning the House and perhaps the Senate they are going to be a lot more hesitant to oppress members of the GOP when there is a prospect of lawmakers striking back.

Now of course as long as they control the White House and the Justice Department they have a modicum of protection and I’m sure they’ll go all in no matter who the GOP nominee is but most companies don’t want grief and don’t want scrutiny and when it becomes clear who is going to win I suspect these firms will decide to be on the winning side.


Finally a lot of people I know have dropped Paypal like a hot potato. Being a person who is a tad more deliberate I’ve decided to wait till after the first of the year.

This will give me time to decide what I’m replacing it with, to contact donors to see if they wish to switch to whatever service I go over to and to evaluate my opitions.

Also in terms of taxes and their preparation it will be easier to have the account active through at least January.

This does involve some risk but if I’m right about the tech pivot that should give me enough leeway to move deliberately without a lot of worry. If I’m wrong, then it’s on me.

A decade ago Andrew Breitbart offered 100,000 for evidence to support democrats claims accusing the Tea Party of public racism toward members of Congress at the time. The media had made a big fuss but Andrew was having none of it:

He said he emphasized with AP writer Jesse Washington that he was not relying on the one video for proof but rather that it was the mainstream media’s responsibility to offer proof of a racist attack before they published their report. That is why Andrew is offering reward money to anyone who will come forth with video that shows a racist attack actually occurred.

Andrew also wondered why the Capitol Hill police did not intervene if this incident actually happened. If the n-word was screamed 15 times… If there was “a chorus” of racist hate… And, if the tea party protesters looked like they were going to throw rocks at the Congressmen, as one of the members suggested, why would the Capitol Hill police stand back and not intervene?

Andrew added that the Democrats now claim that they want dialogue but that is not what they said when they accused the tea party protesters of a hate crime. It was only after representatives were confronted by Big Government and Andrew Breitbart that they suddenly want to hold a civil dialogue.

Needless to say despite a plethora of cameras and recording devices on the scene no such evidence was ever produced and Andrew Breitbart died with that $100,000 unpaid.

Now history is about to repeat itself;

My Pillow founder and CEO Mike Lindell announced on Wednesday he was offering $5 million to any “cyber guys” who can prove the election data he’ll present at his upcoming “cyber symposium” is not valid.

Lindell appeared on the War Room podcast and said that he’s offering $5 million to any “cyber guy” who shows up at his symposium and demonstrates that the data doesn’t actually prove Donald Trump won the election

Now think about this for a moment. For months we’ve been told that all of these claims are BS, we’ve seen big tech, which employs an army of techies insist that this is all disinformation.

The colleges are full of liberals taking tech courses, silicon valley is full of liberals in the tech field, Facebook, twitter, Instagram, tic-toc etc etc etc have thousands if not tens or hundreds of thousands of tech experts who worship at the altar of the left who would I suspect love an extra 5 mil in their pocket, not to mention hundreds of techies dreaming of financing their startup companies who would love five million dollars seed money.

All they have to do is demonstrate that Lindell is advancing a conspiracy theory, and since all the “smart” and “elite” people are insisting this is the case it should be really easy shouldn’t it?

If they do it will be a triumph for the left, every media outlet will hail them, every cable show will feature them and perhaps Hollywood will even do a movie about them. Their debunking of Lindell would be amplified all over the world.

But as loud as that might be, if they fail, their failure while ignored by the press, censored by the tech companies will speak oh so much louder.

Which is why you will not see them even try.

I suspect that like Andrew Breitbart Mike Lindell will go to his grave with his challenge money still in his pocket.

Unexpectedly of course.

This is how much the tech giants are owned by China these days:

Microsoft Corp on Friday blamed “accidental human error” for its Bing search engine not showing image results for the query “tank man” in the United States and elsewhere after users raised concerns about possible censorship around the Tiananmen Square crackdown anniversary. Users, including in the United Kingdom, Germany and Singapore, reported Friday that when they performed the search Bing returned the message, “There are no results for tank man.”

Let me ask anyone on the left who actually believes that a simple question:

If on the anniversary of the death of George Floyd the initial video that got things rolling in that case suddenly turned up “no results” would you buy the “human error” line.

This is a national and international disgrace. Get Duck Duck Go and Brave and get off of Bing and off of any other site owned by leftists who are trying to spin you.

Closing thought: How many times does this happen on smaller stories without your knowledge? I’m guessing a lot.
