Well.... yeah, kinda



Catch you later.

I knew this. You knew this. EVERYONE knew this!

There was never any Trump-Russia collusion

There was never any collusion. The entire debacle has been a Deep State plot to depose a president. The Deep State-promulgated disillusionment about our country’s true power nexus and electoral process has done much to erode the faith of a generation not yet baptized in the fires of partisan destruction. 
(.....) 
California Congressman Devin Nunes has battled back with legal countermeasures related to congressional oversight from the very beginning. America’s Mayor and Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani, though at times muddling the defense narrative on his cable news appearances, never wavered in his conviction that the entire trope was a lie. In his cable appearances, Trump legal adviser Joe diGenova could barely contain his scorn for the debacle that was taking place. Even liberal Alan Dershowitz has called out the unprecedented prevarication used to float what credible analysts have labeled an “attempted coup.”

The entire Trump-Russia hoax was designed to damage Trump and the GOP.  Nothing more.  It was a Democrat Party fever dream that they pushed for the sole purpose of trying to reverse the 2016 election, aided and abetted by the Democrat Media Complex.

I don't think the vast majority of Democrats even thought there was ever any collusion.  I think they were pushing the narrative just as a political action in order to damage the GOP.  There might be a few people who are stupid enough to think it actually happened, but the rest of the people pushing this hoax are simply amoral, evil people who use lies in order to gain political power.

It's that simple.

Congressional Jihadi Caucus flies to California to fete with terrorist-lovers CAIR

Also, I don't want to hear one damn word from the Democrats about my carbon footprint, or how we're all gonna die if we don't stop using fossil fuels.

Newly elected Rep. Ilhan Omar will jet off to Los Angeles next month to keynote a fundraiser for the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), a terror-tied organization that was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorist financing case in U.S. history. 
On March 23, Omar will speak at CAIR-Los Angeles’ 4th Annual Valley Banquet, where tables will cost $500.

Hamas-loving terrorist supporting Somali from Minnesota?  Check.
Terrorist supporting organization?  Check.
Same political party that wants to ban plane travel for Normal Americans flying across the country for a banquet?  Check.

And that's the group who controls the House of Representatives, and huge chunks of every major city in America.  And they are nuttier than squirrel turds.

St. Valentine is also a martyr. Just so ya know.

Once again, I don't celebrate Valentine's Day.  It's a made-up holiday.  A made up day that spawned an entire industry of buying things you don't need or should already have.  (Don't need flowers.  Should already have chocolate.)

So as I did last year, here's a brief synopsis of who St. Valentine actually was.

Valentine became famous for marrying couples who were in love but couldn’t get legally married in Rome during the reign of Emperor Claudius II, who outlawed weddings. Claudius wanted to recruit lots of men to be soldiers in his army and thought that marriage would be an obstacle to recruiting new soldiers. He also wanted to prevent his existing soldiers from getting married because he thought that marriage would distract them from their work. 
When Emperor Claudius discovered that Valentine was performing weddings, he sent Valentine to jail. Valentine used his time in jail to continue to reach out to people with the love that he said Jesus Christ gave him for others. 
He befriended his jailer, Asterious, who became so impressed with Valentine’s wisdom that he asked Valentine to help his daughter Julia with her lessons. Julia was blind and needed someone to read material for her to learn it. Valentine then became friends with Julia through his work with her when she came to visit him in jail. 
Emperor Claudius also came to like Valentine. He offered to pardon Valentine and set him free if Valentine would renounce his Christian faith and agree to worship the Roman gods. Not only did Valentine refuse to leave his faith, he also encouraged Emperor Claudius to place his trust in Christ. Valentine’s faithful choices cost him his life. Emperor Claudius was so enraged at Valentine’s response that he sentenced Valentine to die. 
Before he was killed, Valentine wrote a last note to encourage Julia to stay close to Jesus and to thank her for being his friend. He signed the note: “From your Valentine.” That note inspired people to begin writing their own loving messages to people on Valentine’s Feast Day, February 14th, which is celebrated on the same day on which Valentine was martyred. 
Valentine was beaten, stoned, and beheaded on February 14, 270. People who remembered his loving service to many young couples began celebrating his life, and he came to be regarded as a saint through whom God had worked to help people in miraculous ways. By 496, Pope Gelasius designated February 14th as Valentine’s official feast day.


So we have a guy who was violently executed because of his Christian faith.  Now who wants some chocolate?

I'd like to point out that under Democrat rule, there's a good chance that being a martyr might just start being a thing again.

We've been fed lies for so long that the sound of truth is jarring to the ear.

And it is the truth.

(W)hen men ran the world and women ran society we had a chance to conduct our lives in some semblance of balance, but women have abdicated their running of society and thus, it has collapsed dramatically. Women forced their way into the running-the-world deal and now we have a world gone mad. And the beautiful society which we Western women built is in tatters. Moms decided they were the same as men so they deserted the home and babies to grab their briefcases and rush out to run the world.
By the way, the person talking is the sister of a Feminist "hero".  Apparently someone decided to try to get a happy word from the sister of this feminist icon.

Tapson: In obituaries upon Kate’s passing, the news media wrote largely glowingly of her influence, but what do you think the good and bad of her feminist legacy has been? 
Millett: As I scan the wreckage of our beautiful America, knowing that my own sister was in great part responsible, I feel as if my heart has been kicked down the stairs. So, on pondering this question about the good and the bad of militant feminism, it reminds me of the joke in which the reporter asks, “Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you enjoy the play?”

And reflecting on the mental illness of the feminists and their leftist allies.

Most everyone on the left is atheistic, depressed, dark and miserable, and they want us all to be miserable. Winston Churchill said, “Socialism results in the equal sharing of misery.” They detest happiness. Nothing makes them more miserable than another’s happiness. There is no more comedy! Since they swooped in and took over Hollywood and Broadway, everywhere you search for comic relief is dark, dark, dark. Surf through 200 TV channels and it is grim, grim, grim and then there’s a dismemberment. Our “entertainment” has become death, terror, horror and filth.


Just read it all, if only to give your brain a wash of truth to help cleanse the filth of leftist nihilism from it that builds up like barnacles on a ship's hull.

The FakeNews folks are working overtime this week to protect the Democrats

Oddly enough, there's also no screaming hysterical cries coming from Hollywood demanding that Democrats resign.  Gosh, I wonder why?

The same game is being played with the Green New Deal proposal. 
“I really don’t like their policy of taking away your car, of taking away your airplane rights, of let’s hop a train to California, of you’re not allowed to own cows anymore,” Trump said in the El Paso speech. White House Bureau Chief at The Washington Post Philip Rucker let his 340,000 followers on Twitter know that this was “false” and that “no one” had proposed any such thing. David Weigel, another well-read political reporter at The Post, who had earlier co-bylined a piece with the misleading headline “Ocasio-Cortez retracts erroneous information about Green New Deal,” retweeted Rucker’s falsehood to his 450,000 followers. 
First of all, even if Ocasio-Cortez did walk back her pitch, it was proposed. This might be inconvenient, but it’s also indisputable. Simply because a politician pulls a proposal that’s been dragged across the entire internet and beaten senseless does not mean its existence has been expunged from the record. 
The authors of the Green New Deal were very clear that their plan was a “massive transformation of our society” with “clear goals and a timeline.” Those goals included eliminating “combustion engines” and air travel and beef. It was the bill’s authors who wrote about “economic security” for those who are “unwilling to work.” They simply hadn’t come up with all the nuts and bolts yet. And, yes, a bunch of presidential candidates endorsed these ideas, while the FAQ was up. 
Secondly, Ocasio-Cortez never really walked back her proposal, anyway. A journalist with access to the celebrated socialist congresswoman might want to take a break from running interference and ask her if the schemes found in the original Green New Deal factsheet are still worthy goals. Instead, they’re letting Ocasio-Cortez write their copy for them.


Truth #1:  The media is nothing more than Democrat Operatives with bylines.
Truth #2:  If it weren't for double standards, the Democrat Media Complex would have no standards at all.

Clarity

A former transgender wakes up.

I believe that gender identity is a fraud perpetrated by psychiatry, the likes of something the United States and other nations hasn’t experienced since the lobotomy era. As a result, I have returned to my male birth sex. 
On January 25, 2019, in the State of Florida, the Marion County Department of Motor Vehicles in Ocala, Florida issued me a male driver’s license. Ocala, Florida has been my home since July 2018. 
In the days ahead, I will be taking further steps to restore my birth sex to male more formally.

Now this guy apparently looked around, realized that the whole tranny thing was BS, and went back to being a guy.  I'm genuinely happy for him.

But what about the kids who are being given hormones blockers or testosterone and allowed to chop off their wienie or lop off their boobs because the Left wants to weaponize mental illness?

Anyone out there still think that's a good idea?  Because I have a two-by-four that just needs a few more dents in it....

Went running this morning

Holy cow, I've lost my wind.  I guess since I really haven't been able to go running since the middle of October, that's four months without running.  It's amazing how much you lose in that time.  Luckily I have access to a gym at work, so I've been making sure I don't turn into Fatty McFatcakes, but dang it, I've got a couple of months to get back to where I was before all of this crap with my foot started happening.

Yep. Pretty much

Linda Fox writes about people leaving the San FranSicko area, and a few truths they need to understand.

So, 1 by 1, this women’s social circle is developing gaping holes in it. In her naiveté, she implores the residents who see fleeing CA  refugees to realize that they are good people, just hoping for a better life. 
And, I’m sure she believes that. 
They may have ‘good hearts and big dreams’, but what the resistant old residents of the new locations are wary of is the newcomers’ refusal to recognize several important things:

Go read the whole thing.  Understand that as a guy from Idaho, we have a rather visceral reaction when we find out that Kalifornians are moving in next door.  This reaction is a learned response.  There's nothing quite like having people move in who

1 -  Don't respect property rights (tear-assing around on four-wheelers, including through YOUR pasture land, and they don't even bother to close the gate behind them when they trespass)

2 - Demand that YOU conform to THEIR standards (when their standards are the reason they fled whatever stinking hellhole they came from)

3 - Sneer down at anyone local and label them as "hicks" or "rednecks" (but we were smart enough to not impose stupid legislation on our neighbors and make the whole place unlivable, much like Kalifornia did)

4 - Generally act in such a manner as to make yourself a pariah with anyone who's from the location.  (Loud statements of "Oh I love the scenery but have you seen the way they DRESS here?" do not help your cause)

Having lived in Los Angeles, I can honestly say that there's maybe four or five people out of the entire millions that I would welcome into my home town.  As for the rest, they need to stay there.  Don't pollute my home.  I would tell Kalifornians who are thinking about moving to Idaho to go read Fox's list, but I doubt it would do any good.  I've seen the kind of people who live in the San FranFreakShow area, I've worked with them, and I don't think they have the capability to actually learn anything from that list.  Arrogance and Ignorance combined, weaponized with Marxism, inflicted on America.  These are the people who allow drug addicts to shit on their streets.  And now they want to move to my town?  Why?  So they can let drug addicts shit on the streets up there?

I've come to agree with more folks that we're not voting our way out of this mess.

Ow. Knees hurt

Lots of pomp and ceremony yesterday. Which means lots of standing.  "BRING YOUR UNITS TO ATTENTION!"  Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.  The more rank being moved around, the more you stand at attention or parade rest or at ease.  Anyways, lots of standing.  Standing for that length of time used to hurt a little bit when I was younger.  Now that I'm not some young buck, standing for hours on pavement now hurts the next day.  Gah.  And I have good boots with good insoles.  I'm going to see a lot of people limping around today.

Attended a retirement ceremony yesterday

Another pal gone.  It's the way of things.



One day it'll be me.  I'd be lying if I said I wasn't kinda looking forward to it.  The body's starting to give out, little by little.  I'd like to enjoy my time after the military while I still have the physical capabilities to do so.
