Jump if you're feeling froggy...

 


Do these people screaming for war understand that when that comes, the release felt by folks on the right is going to be damn near cathartic?

I'm guessing no, they don't.  But they'll learn.

Cockroaches run when you turn on the light

 That sound you hear is chitin covered feet hitting full speed.

Social media users noticed Monday the controversial Black Lives Matter organization — the radical business behind the “social justice” movement — deleted its oft-cited “what we believe” page.

Black Lives Matter is anti-Christian. anti-Family, and anti-American.  And everybody knows it, no matter how hard they try to hide it from now on.

Made it back

 Fuck me running, that was brutal.  The last 300 miles was done in the rain on a dark Wyoming interstate at 85 mph.  I think that was the coldest I've ever been on a motorcycle.  But, it's done, and I can say I did it.

And it appears that my youtube links didn't work yesterday.  Sorry 'bout that.

On the open road

 A group of fellows will be doing the Iron Butt Saddlesore challenge today.  I am one of them.  By the time you read this, I'll be hitting I-15 heading South.  Enjoy some music.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg dead at 87

 That whole "No speaking ill of the dead" thing?  Yeah, not so much.  RBG was a progressive anti-American globalist who's sole aim in life was to tear down the framework of the US Constitution until my country no longer resembled a free nation, but instead was a third-world banana republic owned by the progressive Left.

And she succeeded quite a bit.

Ginsburg never had the best interest of America at heart.  Period, end of story, full stop.  And now she's dead

More proof that the FBI is acting as Democrat Party thugs

 They claim that Antifa "isn't an organization".

They have lawyers on fucking SPEED DIAL, you slack-jawed fucksticks!

House Republicans on Thursday tangled with FBI Director Christopher Wray after he said Antifa is “kind of a movement” or ideology but “not an organization.”

Wray told the House Homeland Security Committee that self-identified Antifa, or “anti-facist,” activists were involved in violent unrest following the May killing of George Floyd by Minnesota police, but that the FBI does not consider Antifa a group per se.

Not only is Antifa a group, they are a group of domestic terrorists, a group of anti-American Marxists, a group of domestic enemies of the Constitution of the United States.  But apparently, the FBI can't be bothered to actually watch the fucking news and see what Antifa is doing in real time.  

Oh, yeah, that's hyperbole.  We all know they can watch the news, they just choose not to do so because then they might have to do something that would upset their Democrat Party masters.

I did not know that today was Constitution Day

 But it is.

Not like America follows the constitution any more.  But it's nice to see, kinda like a historical documentation of what used to be.

Fox News panel forbids any mention of George Soros

 Are you fucking kidding me right now?  

I believe it was Melissa Francis who first declares mention of George Soros illegal, to be seconded by a beaming Marie Harf, the former Obama thot who can't believe she now runs an allegedly "conservative" news network.

George Soros has spend millions upon millions of dollars getting anti-American assholes elected in America.  The DA in St. Louis who charged the McCluskeys?  Soros money.  DA Kim Foxx in Chicago?  Soros money.  That douchebag in San Fransicko who worked for Hugo Chavez, and who's now the DA of Sodom on the Bay?  Soros money.

But Fox News says you can't talk about that.

It's unreal just how fast and how far formerly respected organizations have fallen in the past four years.

Where does BLM get their money from?

 Well, partly from China.  Which should come as no shock to anyone, that a Communist country would be funding a Marxist organization who's goal is the destruction of America.

The Black Futures Lab, a venture of Black Lives Matter founder Alicia Garza, is sponsored by the Chinese Progressive Association (CPA), an organization that works with China’s communist government to push its agenda in the United States, according to an investigation by the Heritage Foundation’s Mike Gonzalez.

Gonzalez discovered that the Black Futures Lab donation page explicitly states they are “a fiscally sponsored project of the Chinese Progressive Association,” explaining where donations to Black Futures Lab are funneled.

Black Lives Matter is an anti-family, anti-Christian, anti-American organization.  Don't just take my word for it.  Read it for yourself, in their own words, on their own website.  

So naturally, one America-hating organization will fund another America-hating organization.

Play stupid games and win stupid prizes

 Minneapolis City Council, who voted to defund the police, now wondering where the police are.

Just months after the Minneapolis City Council called for “dismantling” the police department in the wake of George Floyd’s death, they are now panicking that there’s not enough policing to deal with the spike in violent crime. 

During a recent meeting that was supposed to be a study session on police reform, Democratic council members instead relayed the frustrations they’re hearing from constituents.

George Floyd was a criminal who died from a drug overdose.  But that didn't stop the criminal element and their Democrat Party enablers from burning the city down.

I hope the entire city of Minneapolis burns.  I want every Democrat in that city to feel the painful results of their stupidity.  I have no pity left for them.  They deserve every bit of "bad luck" that they get.

Can we trust any "official" information coming out of Oregon?

 I don't really care what the FBI says, given that the FBI is a group of Democrat Party thugs and enforcers.  While the areas around Portland appear relatively sane, there's no way you can trust the official lines of communication if they are at all connected to Portland or the Oregon governor's office.

Rioters are willing to block cops inside a building and set it on fire, so why would the fire-setting criminals of antifa and BLM hesitate to burn down the lives of people they consider to be fascists?

Given that any condemnation of Antifa seems to bring unholy retribution, why should we trust the official narrative?  If people say that they're seeing Antifa setting fires, then my response would be make sure you adjust for elevation before you pull the trigger.

Some linkey love that will probably depress you a little bit

 Reading Kim du Toit, who links to Gun Free Zone, who links to The Silicon Greybeard.

Our training up to know has been CCW as related to violent crime inflicted upon us or our loved ones.  We never trained for organized mobs with legal  (upfront or tacit) government support.

Antifa and the violent leftist mobs have government support from the Democrat Party.  Any Democrat-controlled area allows Antifa and the violent leftist mobs to operate unimpeded.  Any action against Antifa and the violent Leftist mobs will be punished by Democrats.  

There's no way this somehow just ends after the election.

I am not a tactical trainer so my advice counts for crap, but the only solution I see is to accept you will be screwed by the “Law” in some jurisdictions, have a long gun as minimum and a bunch of loaded magazines or easy to reach buck and slugs.  Use cover and engage from a distance.

If you're surrounded by the mob, you're already fucked.  Avoid Democrat cities whenever possible.  If you find yourself in Democrat-controlled territory, get out as soon as possible.  If you can't get out, make plans to protect what area you can.

We're already in a civil war.  Read that quote from J.R.R. Tolkien that I have at the top of the sidebar:  It needs but one foe to breed a war, not two, Master Warden, and those who have not swords can still die upon them. 

No, I don't have a solution.  I have a feeling that most people don't have a solution to this, short of surrounding Portland and burning it to the ground as a warning to the other Antifa groups.

The destruction of the university system continues

 Why in hell would anyone spend six figures to attend a supposed institute of higher learning when the only thing you're learning is emotional flatulence and stupidity?

Apparently a considerable number of future businesspeople, who are going to a leading MBA program, are in a position where they seem to be bitterly offended (in their words, had their "mental health" "affected") by a word that many of them will likely have to hear on many occasions in their business life, if they ever visit a Chinese-speaking country, work around Chinese speakers who might speak casual Chinese to each other, or deal with Chinese clients, customers, or contractors who might do the same.

The people being indoctrinated by the university system in America are going to be highly credentialed, completely uneducated, indoctrinated myrmidons.  Burn the entire system to the ground.  Kill it with fire.

Just a reminder: Google is evil

Don't use Google to search for anything.  And it's not just Google.  I use DuckDuckGo for my search engine.  I can't get straight answers out of Google or Bing.

And this is why the Church is shrinking

 The bishops silence priests and laypeople who criticize Biden, while encouraging people who support him.  The bishops have gone political, without a care in the world about the parishes under their jurisdiction.

So why do the bishops silence priests who criticize Biden and protect his defenders? The answer lies in their lack of faith. Deep down they agree with Biden. Like him, they also want to liberalize Church teaching. They don’t mind the coming attacks on the Church. After all, most of them find the Church’s teachings antiquated too. In the end, a secularized Church (which is what Biden’s persecution will aim to create) doesn’t really bother them. What bothers them are outspoken traditionalists who remind them of their shirked responsibilities. Only then do they throw their ecclesiastical weight around. Only then do they start murmuring about canon law. But for Joe Biden, who couldn’t be more blatantly in violation of it, they say nothing and deliberately give him sacrilegious communion.

Shameless cowardice is now the act of the day for most US Catholic bishops.  

Good Catholics must understand that the Church isn't just going to shrink, it will nigh well disappear in the coming years, with pockets of faith scattered through the country keeping the faith alive while narcissistic sodomites and pedophiles wearing cardinal red caps desperately try to hold on to their influence, as well as the money that influence brings in.  We have an anti-pope who's boyfriend runs a child prostitution ring using orphans and runaways, and bishops who refuse to defend their faith.  This cannot end well.

Find a Traditional Latin Mass.  Find those outspoken traditionalists, because they are the people keeping faith with Christ.  Do not follow the bishops into hell, because that is assuredly where most of them are going.

Yes, they DO want to be lectured

 I predict, here and now, that Kalifornia will elect the very same hypocrites this November, and nothing will change.

Last week we had Salongate when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was caught on security cameras visiting a San Francisco hair salon for a wash and blow-out, despite Gov. Gavin Newsom’s business lockdown orders, and local ordinances keeping hair and nail salons closed during the coronavirus pandemic.

Now we find out gyms located inside of government buildings in San Francisco have been open for months, despite privately owned gyms and fitness centers still ordered closed because of Gov. Newsom’s business lockdown over coronavirus.

If that is not enough, Central Coast Congressional Candidate Andy Caldwell reported to the Globe that the Santa Barbara Unified School District allowed the children of teachers and district employees to return to in-class learning, in a secret carve-out exemption at Franklin, McKinley, and other elementary schools in the district.

No one wants to be condescended to and lectured by foolish politicians who aren’t adhering to the rules and restrictions they put in place.

Yes, they do want to be lectured.  At least the people who live in Los Angeles and San Fransicko do.  They want their government masters to tell them what to do, and to take away all those pesky responsibilities and the freedom that they require.  They're begging the state to put chains around their necks and fetters around their hands, to better scrape and bow to their government overlords.

They will vote for their royal owners, the new aristocracy, and not a single thing will change in Kalifornia.

You heard it here first.

September 11th

 Nineteen years.  I am now in charge of troops who were born after the attacks.  And quite frankly, a huge part of this country has forgotten that they even happened.  They've forgotten the whys and the hows, and they've got back to demanding that we allow a 7th century satanic death cult unimpeded access to this country.  

I don't know what the future holds.  But I know that hard times are coming, no matter what.  Soft men nake hard times, and too many men in America are far too soft.

Never Forget.

Mystery Behind The Man Who Fell From The Twin Towers On 9/11


The only way for Biden to win is massive voter fraud

 His campaign is one big shit show.

TJ Ducklo, Joe Biden’s national campaign spokesperson ventured onto Fox News for an interview with Bret Baier, and it was not good. It seems there’s a reason why this operation has had a bunker mentality. Everyone sucks. 

Biden will win the blue cities, but the corpse of a syphilitic camel could win the blue cities if it had a big (D) after it's name.  Hence Kamala Harris and San Fransicko.  But watching the Biden campaign come apart at the seams should give you pause.  Think about how hard the Democrats are pushing for ballot harvesting, i.e. mail-in voting.  They're going to cheat.  That's the only way they can win, and they think they're going to win.  What kind of fraud are they going to cook up this time, or are they just going to go with ballot harvesting again like they did in 2018 in California?  Granted, they made it legal in Cali first, and the rest of the country hasn't gone that route.

Another "Drugs are Bad, m'kaaaay?" post

 Courtesy of Peter Grant, we find this study that links marijuana use by pregnant women with a 50% rise in the chance of autism.

A recent analysis of more than 500,000 Canadian mothers and their children revealed a 50% increase in the risk of autism in kids whose mothers had used marijuana while pregnant, according to a report published Monday in Nature Medicine.

Daniel Corsi, the study's lead author and adjunct professor at the University of Ottawa, and his colleagues parsed data from all Ontario births occurring from 2007 to 2012.

The 503,065 children analyzed — 3,148 of whom had mothers that had used cannabis while pregnant — were followed for an average of seven years. Exactly 7,125 were diagnosed with varying levels of autism.

Researchers found that the rate of autism diagnoses among children with in utero cannabis exposure was 2.2%. Of those whose mothers did not use the drug during pregnancy, only 1.4% were diagnosed with autism.

Look, I get that some folks use pot for medical purposes.  I understand that.  But the vast majority of people are just using it to get high, and it's going to have long lasting effects that we can't even begin to fathom at this time.  And I can tell you from personal experience that a mother who's constantly high CAN NOT properly parent their kids.  No, not my mom, although for all the crap I've put my parents through they couldn't be blamed for wanting to take the edge off.

The UN is as worthless as ever

 Why the hell are we still spending billions of dollars a year on this fucking piece of crap?

So, you thought COVID-19 came from China? Maybe from a serving of bat soup in a wet market? Or perhaps it escaped from a lab.

According to the United Nations, you’re mistaken. The pandemic was caused by millennia of patriarchy, and we all know it:


I have no words.  I don't know if there is anything that can be said to something that stupid, that grossly malignant, that moronic, that blatantly untrue.  The only thing that needs to be said to that is "Get out of our country, and take your bullshit with you."

Well, that was interesting

 Straight-line winds yesterday.  Gusts up to 75 mph.  The University of Utah recorded one gust at 113 mph.  That made things a little dicey on the interstate, as truck after truck was blown over.  USP eventually just told the truckers to stop, pull over, and don't move because they didn't have enough rigs to pull the trucks upright if they went over as well.

Power down all over the place.  With a good quarter of the local trees laying on power lines, that wasn't a shock.

Today should be better, but still not a motorcycle day.

So, no college football this year?

 I mean, unless you're in SEC territory, it seems like every other conference has decided that it's better to curl up in the fetal position, shit yourself, and cry for mommy.

I say, good.  Close it all down.

College football is the economic engine that runs all the other sports.  No football means no money, and the other sports don't bring in anywhere close to what the football program brings in.

No money, no sports.  Without football, all the sports suffer hits to their budgets.  

When every other sport starts taking hits, it lessens the opportunity for high school graduates to get suckered in to an institution of higher mis-education.  Sure, go ahead and pay six figures for that degree in History or Gender Studies!  You get to play College Softball for the time you're here!  Yeah!  Won't this be fun?  Except you can't have a women's softball program without the money that the football program brings in.

Given that the universities and colleges in this country are the breeding ground for the Marxist, anti-American crap we're seeing on the streets right now, anything that hurts academia can't be all bad.

Let them bleed.

On that Atlantic hit piece

 Whereupon anonymous sources claim that Trump said bad things about the honored dead in a cemetery in France....

John Bolton said it didn't happen.  John Bolton would tear Trump down in a red hot minute if he could.  But John Bolton isn't going to just make shit up in order to do so.

The Democrat Media Complex is throwing everything they have at Trump, lie after lie after lie, hoping that something will stick.  It's all bullshit.  There's no reality behind their accusations, just as there hasn't been any reality behind all the other lies and hysterical accusations they've thrown over the past four years.

Trump supporters know that.  Which is why each more-hysterical accusation falls flat.  Which is why they're going to commit vote fraud on an epic scale, because Gropey Joe can't read a teleprompter speech without drooling on himself.

Bad times coming, my friends.

Cleaning the house today

Gonna be busy, because we're getting new flooring laid in the kitchen and bathroom.  As such, we have to remove everything from those rooms.  It'll keep me busy for a while.

Enjoy some music.

Went on a Veterans Ride today

 


That bike that's pretty much dead center with the rider looking to the right?  That's me and the Mrs.  The dude in front of us riding the double yellow line couldn't stay in formation to save his life.  Must be a squid or a zoomie.  A Jarhead or a grunt would know proper spacing.

It was a good ride, up and over Guardsman pass.  There were some corners that had me reading my own licence plate.  

Demanding the right to watch little boys twerk their money maker isn't a good look for the Left.

You know, if you don't want to be considered a bunch of perverted, sexually deviant pedophiles, maybe you shouldn't be insisting that you have the right to watch little boys dress in drag and shake their ass while you throw money at them.

Well, New Blogger won't let me go back to old Blogger

 Anybody have any ideas about a new hosting service?  I'm willing to pay.  Blogger sucks ass.

I don't know why they decided to fuck around.  It wasn't broken.  The "new" bullshit doesn't improve a damn thing.  It's a fucking sham.  Of course, I don't pay for it, they use me to get information that they sell to people in order to get money.  I get that.  But this new bullshit just pisses me off, and quite frankly, I'm tired of it.

California essentially calls gay people pedophiles

And it's codified!

Earlier this week, California legislators passed a law that, if signed by Governor Gavin Newsom, would end automatic sex-offender registry rules for some adults who commit sex acts with minors. Proponents of this insane bill claim it will end “discrimination against LGBTQ young people on the sex offender registry.”

I know that there are people in California who don't actually want to have sex with young kids.  But they seem to be in the minority.

Antifa commie attains "Good" status

Good on the cops for not letting this piece of crap get away.

The man who appears to have admitted to shooting and killing a supporter of Donald Trump in Portland on Saturday was killed Thursday night as U.S. Marshals moved in to arrest him.

I think the people in charge knew exactly what was going to happen if they let this admitted murderer walk free after killing a man in cold blood.  The next protest would be a bloodbath.  Especially after they arrested a kid for defending himself from a pedo that abused five kids aged 9-11.

There comes a point where reasonable people decide that if they government won't do it's job, then it's time for the people to take back that right of violence.

Found a group that sounds as good live as they do on the radio



I heard this on one of my long drives home.  Seemed kind of appropriate.

What a great way to prove you're not a bunch of tyrannical thugs!

Arrest pregnant women who are tired of the lockdown!  Because arresting pregnant women in front of their other children for daring to speak out against the government is totes not tyrannical at all.

This is how societies die.  It's in Australia, which used to be a sane country.

Why Trump should NOT send in the troops

Well, the guy is a Colonel, so he knows what he's talking about.

But what folks do not understand are the practical problems with Trump using troops (sending federal law enforcement officers presents similar problems, but also a unique and big one – there just aren’t as many federal cops as there are soldiers). The devil is in the details, and the devil here makes Trump pulling the trigger on the troops in the current situation a very bad idea. We should support his strategic patience and not do what the Democrats want by getting mad at the president for refusing to stumble into an ambush.

Every point he makes there is true.  But there's more.  Portland isn't worth one single Soldier's life.  Portland isn't worth sending one single Soldier to jail, and you know damn well and good that it would happen if a Soldier had to protect himself with lethal force that the Portland Star Chamber would lock them up even as they let the Marxist shitbags walk free.

Is Chicago worth one Solder's life?  No.  So why would we send Soldiers in to a situation where their lives are in danger, and they're not allowed to defend themselves?

Seattle?  Ditto.

None of these cities are worth the risk to Soldiers' lives.  Let them burn.

Kenosha?  That might be a good risk/reward trade off.  But not Milwaukee. 

So DON'T send in the troops.  It's just not worth it.

Portland, Oregon is not really a part of the United States

It it hasn't been for a while, it seems.  Let's hope the SCOTUS actually takes a look at this case, because otherwise there's a precedent set that would make a Soviet show trial look fair and impartial.

I wouldn't spend time in Portland if you paid me.  Hell, at this point I won't even drive through that city.

The DNC did a trial run on mail-in voter fraud in 2018

And it worked, just they way they liked it.

Oregon Gov: Hey Sheriffs, come join us in our law enforcement efforts! The Sheriffs: Nah, we're good.

Good for them.  I wouldn't piss in Governor Brown's mouth if her teeth were on fire.  And I sure as hell wouldn't put my officers and deputies in to that flaming shithole known as Portland.

Perhaps Kate Brown should have remembered that Clackamas and Washington Counties had pulled out of mutual aid agreements with the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Department after getting hosed on indemnification:

Let Portland burn.  Keep Portland weird, right?  Burning to the ground is kinda weird.

Sturgis rally Kung Flu numbers are in. The result?

More people died from fatal crashes than from the virus.  The lockdown is a criminal hoax.

You won’t see this reported in the media nationally. It is too much good news. If almost half a million people can gather for an event that spans 10 days with this outcome, it puts their COVID-19 panic porn to rest. The case for mail-in voting would die. We could conduct a safe and secure election as usual. People could go back to work and school without screening tests or masks. And college football would be a go nationwide.

Well, I don't think I care so much about the football, but all the rest?  Yes.

I could actually see this working




I'm willing to bet that we could get quite a few people behind voter ID if we framed it in this fashion.

It was only a matter of time

Given that the Left has almost killed satire by actually doing the kind of outlandish crap sites like the Babylon Bee write about, the Bee has decided to have a site dedicated to the headlines that SHOULD be satire, but are not.

For example:  Americans march through American streets chanting "DEATH TO AMERICA!"

Not satire.

Connections

Do Democrats hate America and want her to die, so they can turn it into a socialist hellhole?  Well, yes.  And that's why so many "liberal" foundations give millions upon millions of dollars to various marxist groups that are sent out to burn this country down.

Antifa has lawyers ready to go when the marxist footsoldiers get arrested.  How do you think they're paying for all that?

So, standard Democrat members then?

Stupid people saying stupid things

Over at Kim du Toit's place, I find a stupid person screaming stupid things in Wisconsin.

A man who addressed the “Justice for Jacob” rally in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Saturday declared: “If you kill one of ours, it’s time for us to kill one of yours.”

I don't think that very stupid person has bothered to think that through all the way.  I mean, given that black on white homicides are twice the number of white on black homicides....

Data straight from the CDC.

The lockdown is a scandal that should have people tarred and feathered.

For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death. 

If you're healthy, you have damn near 0% chance of dying from this virus.

STAY AWAY FROM FERAL HUMANS!

Dammit...

On the 95th day of riots and protests in Portland, Ore., a Trump supporter was fatally shot. He was identified by his "Patriot Prayer" hat and his shooting death was caught by multiple livestreamers.


Look folks, these ferals are cowardly marxist shitbags, right?  They will attack you only if they can run away afterwards and not be discovered.  You know what makes that easy?  Standing in a city full of feral humans after dark, surrounded by the screeching commies.

STAY AWAY FROM FERAL HUMANS!

Now a good man (I'm assuming he's a good man) has lost his life, and the feral humans, shit-throwing monkeys and various other human trash are dancing and celebrating.

STAY AWAY FROM FERAL HUMANS!

Vote Fraud Exists

I wonder, if Bernie Sanders hadn't had the nomination stolen from him twice, if this Berni-Bro would have ever come forward?

The whisteblower — whose identity, rap sheet and long history working as a consultant to various campaigns were confirmed by The Post — says he not only changed ballots himself over the years, but led teams of fraudsters and mentored at least 20 operatives in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania — a critical 2020 swing state.

Back home

So, I've been up at the parents' house, helping out mom and dad with the summer chores that are part and parcel to living out in the country.

Normally dad would be doing them.  But thanks to the Kung Flu bullshit, and in particular, the restrictions they placed on hospitals, and the way the medical community reacted, when my dad had a minor problem, it didn't get fixed.  So it turned in to a major problem.  That still didn't get fixed.  Until it was almost too late, and in the end, dad ended up in the hospital for two months, without any kidney function.

A man who was 175 pounds, cutting down trees and fixing fencelines in May, is now an emaciated man who can't lift a chainsaw.

The good news is that he's home, he's getting better, and it looks like his kidneys are slowly coming back to life.  I can't really talk too much about what he went through without a Red Curtain Of Blood falling over my eyes, so I'll focus on the positives.  He has his mental acuity.  He's as sharp as he was prior to this incident, so there's that.  But physically, he's a shell of what he was, and so that meant that the word around the house needed to be done by someone else.

My brother than I have spent about a month each on the property taking care of things.  The biggest thing is firewood.  My parents heat their home with a wood stove, and it takes 6-8 cords of wood a year.  For those who don't know, a cord of wood is a stack of wood measuring 4 feet by 4 feet by 8 feet.  128 cubic feet of wood.  Luckily, since the property was logged last year, there's plenty of dried wood available.  So we got that cut and stacked, and then I went to work on the logs that we brought down this year.  Here's a little sample of one morning's work.



For reference, the bar on that chainsaw is 20 inches.  After I got done with that, I split a pile of red fir that we took down in July.  Do stuff like that.  Wash, rinse, repeat.

We cleared out the shed that you see behind that wood, which contained about twenty years of detritus from country living.  Reinforced the floor, built a bench for dad to work on.  Multiple dump runs.  Did maintainence on Dad's tractor so it's ready to go for plowing in the winter time.  He can get on the tractor and run it, but he can't crawl underneath to change the oil.  Mom could, but she's not really mechanically inclined. 

Cleaned out the barn.  Cleaned up the property.  Cleaned the chimney, which wasn't too bad since it gets cleaned every year, but still had a lot of creosote built up.  Winterized Dad's boat.

And stacked more wood.  And split more wood.  And stacked more wood.  Mom bought a side-by-side, and the Mrs. was able to find one locally, brand new, that she got a hell of a deal on, so I trailered that up for them.  Dad can now zoom around the property without having to worry about not being able to walk back. 

Cleaned and lubed the rails for the garage door.  So on and so forth.  There was a lot of work that just didn't get done in years past, that my brother and I were able to accomplish.  I'll be taking a week of leave around Thanksgiving and doing even more up there, while the Mrs. and my Mom do whatever it is that women do while men are out working.

I made it back home last night, and today I slept in until 0900, which I haven't done in years.

Anyways, that's why I was out in the middle of nowhere with no real internet.

The Samuel Adams option

I think, in part, many of us are doing this already.

So what did Samuel Adams and other patriots do?
  • They formed Committees of Correspondence—connecting patriots to each other across the different towns and villages within individual colonies and with each other.
  • They developed their own media to promote “the rights of the colonists, and of this province [Massachusetts] in particular, as men, as Christians, and as subjects; to communicate and publish the same to the several towns in this province and to the world as the sense of this town.”
  • They protected themselves from the “cancel culture” of their era by often using pseudonyms and forming secret societies.
  • They used symbolic acts of resistance like the Boston Tea Party to mobilize public opinion.
  • They worked within the system as much as possible—petitioning allies within the British government.
  • They published the names and exposed the merchants who imported British goods and undermined American industry.

This election, with the riots and the cancel culture in full swing, has forced a lot of folks to re-examine what it is they're doing.  And it's hardened quite a few opinions about the Left.

The feral human shot by police in Kenosha was armed with a knife, and had been tased to no effect.

So for extra credit, would anyone out there like to explain to me what it means when you hit someone with a taser and they have no reaction to it?

For those of you who guessed "Drugs on board that make a person violent and unpredictable", you win a prize to be announced later.

My guess is this feral human was on meth, although PCP would give the same type of effect.

Kenosha is burning because a meth-head with a knife was shot by the cops.  A meth-head with a warrant out for his arrest on RAPE CHARGES.  Residents are firing "warning shots" at the rioters.  Fuck that bullshit.  Ammo is too damn expensive.  No warning shots.  The fact that they're invading and rioting and looting and burning and vandalizing is all the reason that people need to put a bullet dead center in the feral humans.

Don't be a victim.  Don't allow your family be become victims.  Stay away from feral humans.  But if you can't stay away from them, shoot them.  Better to be judged by twelve than carried by six.

Good advice

Zero Bandwidth

Folks, if I could attempt to explain why I haven't posted, it's because my internet speeds resemble a 14.4k modem.  The only time I've been in town, where I could get wi-fi, was when I was running crap to the dump.  So please excuse my lack of posting for the next week.  I'll do what I can.  Until then, might I suggest my blogroll over on the right?

Here's a good example of why the magic face diapers of submission don't work




Folks, the reason doctors wear masks is two-fold.  One, they prevent BACTERIAL infection.  Bacteria are much larger than a virus.  Two, they help cover the doctor if the patient gets all squirty.  Ask any ER nurse, and they've had "squirty" patients. 

The magic face diapers of submission to not do a DAMN THING to prevent a virus.

Stop wearing them.  Wash your hands.  Wash your hands again.  Use paper towels to open the doors of public restrooms.  I use hand sanitizer to wipe down any public surface I'm going to be using for eating.  Hell, Purel makes antiseptic wipes, use those. 

But the masks?  It's bullshit.

I used to be able to see the Milky Way from my front yard

Now?  There's enough light pollution in North Idaho that I can see the stars, most of them, but the galaxy is a lost cause.

The packs of coyotes are still here.  They're lighting off every night right now.  It's fun to listen to.

My brother and I have done 3+ cords of wood in two days.  We still have quite a bit of space to fill up, along with other chores that need to be done.  It's been a ball-buster of a week and we're only half through. 

More later.  Once I'm not working all day.

What's that old saying about firewood?

It heats you twice, once when you cut it and once when you burn it?

My brother and I are busting through about eight cords of wood right now for the parents, and I think I drank two gallons of water today trying to stay hydrated.  Holy crap.  The heat can go away now.

Just a gentle reminder

If you find yourself in your vehicle and surrounded by Antifa, put your foot on the gas and do not stop until you are far, far away from them.  And if that means you run their asses over, then you do it.

On Sunday night, antifa rioters in Portland beat up a blonde woman, then followed a truck driver, making him crash. After he crashed, the mob pushed him away from the truck, forced him down on the ground, searched for his keys, and then kicked him in the head, leaving him bleeding on the pavement. The incident involved a man wearing a black bulletproof vest with the word “SECURITY” on the back. Videos showed the same man escorting a man away from an antifa/Black Lives Matter protest, then assaulting a transgender bystander earlier in the night. Rioters indiscriminately referred to their prey with the N-word.

Run them over.  It's your life or theirs.  The guy they beat is unresponsive and in the hospital.  He's most likely going to die, or be brain damaged for life if he ever wakes up.

Run.  Them.  Over.

I've noticed I've had fewer instances of illness since I started taking vitamin D

In fact, I can count the times I've been seriously ill on one hand, when you take out the times I was sick from black mold in Army buildings.

“For each standard-deviation increase in serum 25-hydroxy-Vitamin D, the risk of a severe outcome was reduced eightfold, and the risk of a critical outcome was reduced 20-fold.”

I also spend a lot more time out doors, which has to help as well.  Fresh air and sunshine do more for your health than any amount of pills.

Music for Sunday

I'm back in the woods with little to no internet, so you'll just have to be happy with what I can provide you on limited access.



You're going to want to put this on good speakers.  Trust me.

Update: The FBI is a corrupt Democrat Party organization who will only do the right thing when they have no other options.

Kinda like this:

Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe tried to buy a firearm and was denied a few days ago. He later discovered that he was on the prohibited person list regarding the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). Was this an error? Was this over his investigative reporting? The Federal Bureau of Investigation put him on that list. 

In four years, the FBI has gone from a respected institution to a complete and utter shit show.

Yep

Donald Trump does what professional politicians failed at for decades

Hey, why'd we elect an OUTSIDER, eh?

While it is not unusual in political circles to describe something as a historic breakthrough, it is unusual when the term is justified. Yet that is the right way to describe the three-way agreement announced Thursday by the Trump White House, Israel and the United Arab Emirates.

Donald Trump has actually accomplished the things that "peace-makers" have failed to do.  All the professional diplomats and UN flunkies either could not get it done, or they didn't want it done.  Trump got it done.  Barry Hussein O'Bumblefuck, the jug-eared fuckstain on the bedsheets of America, was handed a NOBEL PEACE PRIZE for merely not being Bushitler, but he left the Middle East in flames.  Literally in flames.  Trump is stabilizing the region in ways that the professional government class could only dream of doing.  And doing it without firing a shot.

Four more years, folks.  At this point I'd crawl over a mile of broken glass to throw the lever for Trump.  Do you really think Joe "Stinky-Finger" Biden could broker that deal?  Hell no.  Joe Biden got to Washington D.C. in 1973.  That's before I was born.  Joe Biden has literally been in politics longer than I've been alive.  Joe Biden IS the problem.

The Government KNOWS Hydroxychloroquine works. And the refuse to admit it.

I think that Dr. Risch is being generous in his estimation of the government's actions:

If Dr. Risch’s assessment is correct, approximately 80,000 people in the United States would still be alive had they been prescribed HCQ in the early stages of the disease. He calls the FDA’s actions unconscionable. I would assert that if wrongdoing is uncovered, it should be prosecuted. 
The bureaucrats at the FDA, CDC, and NIH are supposed to be guardians of the public health. If they are failing in this mission due to conflicts of interest, their scope should be reviewed, and their agencies must be reformed. 

At this point, the US Government should be considered a hostile actor working against US citizens.  Hydroxychloroquine works, if administered early and with zinc.  But nobody can make money from HCQ, so they're not going to push it.

The lockdowns were wrong.  Massively wrong.  The continuing lockdowns are even worse.  The destruction of the economy is a deliberate action taken by the Left against Trump.  The thousands of deaths from the Chinese Chest Cold could have been massively lessened if idiots and morons didn't shove infected patients into nursing homes, or if they had actually used the medicine they had on hand rather than banning it a la Whitmer in Michigan because ORANGE MAN BAD or some stupid fucking commie bullshit like that.

I am sick of the panic pornography.  I am tired of the destruction of our country over a chest cold that could be treated with cheap, generic drugs if the politicians and bureaucrats didn't prevent it.  I am tired of watching business after business shutter for good.  And I'm sick of knowing that all of this didn't have to happen.

Cannon Hinnant

Imagine if a white man ran across the street and shot a five year old black boy in the head at point blank range.  We wouldn't hear the end of it.

But when the races are reversed?  Crickets.

A five year-old boy named Cannon Hinnant was recently shot in the head at point blank range while riding his bike in his yard. The murder was witnessed by his sisters, aged 7 and 8. 
The suspected shooter is a 25 year-old man named Darius Nathaniel Sessoms. The national media’s silence on this story is deafening. Why could that be?

The mainstream media in this country is a collection of garbage humans working for garbage organizations, doing the bidding of a garbage political party in service to a garbage ideology.

On Trump moving Fifth Corps HQ to Poland

Well, good.

Listen, I like Germany.  Beautiful country.  Good beer, lots of cool things and places, nice people.

But Poland?  Ask our troops who've worked with the Poles what they think of them, and you'll hear quite a bit of gushing praise.  And Poland has the bonus of not inviting in millions upon millions of people from a 7th-century Satanic death cult of pedophilia.

My only regret is that I'll be retired long before I get a chance to be stationed there.

Has the College Death Spiral started?

Colleges and universities were already facing mounting financial pressure because enrollment is steadily declining and certain to get much worse in the coming decade (the result of falling birthrates back at the time of the housing crash in 2008-09). Add to this the financial hit they are taking right now because of the virus, on top of the huge loss this year of foreign students who typically pay full tuition rates and subsidize other students, and a large number of colleges and universities face a serious risk of insolvency. 

The vast majority of what is wrong in this country can be traced back to an "educational" system that stuffs the heads of its students with Marxist bullshit rather than an actual education.

I don't have any hope that if the universities collapse, it'll fix the problem.  More than likely they will just reorganize themselves into another cancerous tumor sitting in the middle of America, wreaking havoc on the young and impressionable.  But at least they'll get to suffer a little bit.  At least they'll get just a little taste of pain.

I have been severely unimpressed with the college graduates I've met in recent years.  The few grads I've actually been impressed with have chosen their schools with great care in order to avoid the Marxist bullshit, as they were aware that colleges and universities in this country are indoctrination centers and hive-mind collectives.

Oh, and the K-12 publk skool sistim is a load of hot garbage, and has been for years.

On Saturday, a teacher in Philadelphia started a thread on Twitter lamenting that the virtual-classroom model for school might prevent teachers from having “honest conversations about gender/sexuality” with students because parents might be listening.

Hey, what's it called when adult males have "honest conversations about gender/sexuality" with young children that they're not related to?  Oh, right.  GROOMING.

Southern men understand




Stole this from Kenny over at Knuckledraggin'.

OK, this actually gives me some hope

Trump actually hired someone who isn't a Democrat Party hack/Panic Pornagrapher.

At his press conference yesterday the President announced that Dr. Scott Atlas is joining his team of COVID-19 advisors. 

If you haven’t heard of Dr. Atlas… well, that’s part of the problem. 

Go read it all.  The lockdowns are a massive mistake a best.  Most likely they're a deliberate attempt to destroy this country, all on the word of a life-long bureaucrat and Democrat Party operative who doesn't follow his own advice when he thinks the cameras are off of him.  Fauci can kiss my ass.   It's time for actual doctors to start taking charge, dammit.

Yep

Tell me about my "White Privilege" again

Ilhan "Bro-Fo" Omar will not be prosecuted despite clear evidence of immigration fraud.

Here is yet more evidence of the two-tier justice system we have in the United States. A “veteran insider” at the Department of Homeland Security revealed Wednesday that two different federal agencies have investigated Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Ankara) for months, but decided not to prosecute her for immigration fraud, despite clear and readily available evidence that she married her own brother as part of an elaborate immigration scam.

Anyone wanna ask me again what I think about rules these days?  Especially when the rules are nothing but subjective edicts only enforced on people who aren't part of the National Socialist Democrat Worker's Party?

Cuomo the mob boss doing what mob bosses do.

Being an arrogant, entitled, brainless piece of shit, in other words.

Look, Cuomo is a cheap suit filled with bullshit and hot air.  He's not very intelligent, he's just nasty and mean.  If his daddy wasn't a mob boss and a former governor, both Andrew Cuomo and Chrissy Cuomo would be nothing but drug-dealing back-alley thugs in the Bronx.

But NYFC loves them some incompetent goons, hence we get Nipples Cuomo and Blah Blah deBolshevik running the place into the ground.  I don't think the NY GOP do themselves any favors either.

The damage done to America may be permanent

When you've lost the law-abiding:

I now see the FBI as a terrorist organization, with decades of doing to American citizens of what they are now doing to Trump. I don’t buy into the refrain, 99% of agents are saints and would never do what Comey did. I now believe not only might they do that they are TRAINED to do that. If an FBI agent should ever show up at my door I would look at him or her as the worst agents of China, Russia or Osama bin Ladin. The LAST thing I would do is trust them to want the best for America. I ABSOLUTELY see them as evil and against law and order. 
Why shouldn’t I? Barr and Wray are convincing me American intelligence agencies are allowed to breaks laws on a whim and KNOW they will NEVER be held accountable. As far as I’m concerned the American intelligence services are the worst travesty to be unleashed on humanity and should be dissolved. I NEVER was a radical, and now thanks to Barr and Wray, I have no choice.

I would say the anger at Barr is somewhat misplaced, but only somewhat, given that we have seen example after example of lawbreaking that would never be allowed by us common folks, but politically connected criminals are walking around free.

It took decades to get this bad.  It may never get better.

Years ago, my dad had me read a book

The Soldier's Load and the Mobility of a Nation.  It was a no-bullshit look at how much a fighting man can carry and still be effective.  It was first printed in 1950.  I still have my copy, sitting on my bookshelf.  It expounded on how much gear a troop carried in WWII and what got thrown away in order for the troop to be able to fight.

We ain't learned shit in seventy years.

According to research conducted by Marine Corps Capt. Courtney Thompson at the Naval Postgraduate School, the most a Marine should be stuck carrying into the fight is a comparatively measly 58 pounds. While that may sound like a lot for your average Sunday hiker, for America's warfighters, that's a figure that seems impossibly low for today's combat operations.

It's not uncommon to see 150 pound loads on Soldiers these days.  My basic kit in Afghanistan was 62 pounds - IBA, helmet, weapon, 210 rounds.  That was just the stuff I wore, and didn't include my ruck.  And I was one of the lightest loads I saw, given that my job was running around with a Chaplain and not carrying the baseplate of a mortar or the spare barrel for a 240B. 

No, I don't have any answers.  Nobody does.  The fighting force today is generally better fit, more prepared and better trained.  It's also a fact that testosterone levels have dropped through the generations which in turn affects muscle and how much a man can carry. 

This is the point where I shrug and go "WTF?"

The good news the media doesn't want you to hear

Ignore the panic pornography.

The amount of information withheld from the public is both obscene and horrific. There are plenty of reasons for Americans to be optimistic about the experience with COVID-19 and our ability to develop rational public policy to deal with it. These policies should protect the vulnerable and let the rest of the country live their normal lives.

The mis-information put out by the "experts" should result in said "experts" getting tarred and feathered.

Maybe the reason Americans hold the media in contempt...

Is that with a few exceptions, the media is nothing but garbage people holding garbage degrees working for garbage organizations in service to a garbage political party.

A major survey came out this week showing deep distrust in the media, and then a top producer at MSNBC and a recently deposed opinion editor from the New York Times aired their own biting critiques. The message from all three is that the media has forfeited professional standards and ethics. The message is correct.

Every day I think I couldn't hate the mainstream media any more than I do.  And every day they prove me wrong.

The EPA, fucking over Americans for decades

And then covering it up.  The EPA needs to be destroyed.


The regional office of the federal agency did a number of dishonest and possibly illegal things in and around Yakima, Washington, over the last decade that put local dairy farms out of business. More farms will be driven under if the EPA’s cover-up of its actions is allowed to stand, as activists will be able to press faulty claims in court by citing the agency’s supposed authoritativeness.


I'm old enough to remember the Alar Scare that junk scientists and the government used to shut down apple orchards all across Washington State.  I spoke with many former orchard owners who had been put out of business by that bullshit.  History repeats itself.

The EPA needs to be abolished.

Just a reminder

Courtesy of Kim du Toit:  Modern university degrees are about as worthwhile as toilet paper.  It's a scam.  Every time you hear some tenured idiot screech about "for-profit colleges", just remember that they are ALL "for profit".

Cholesterol meds don't do jack squat.

And cholesterol itself isn't all that bad for you, even the LDL.  Yeah, yeah, I know, BUT DOCTORS!!!!  Docs used to shill cigarettes back when my dad was running full time in the 60's.  So pardon me if I don't take everything they say as the gospel truth.

Hundreds of millions of people worldwide take cholesterol-lowering drugs, like statins, but now a new review suggests that many folks don't benefit from these medications. 
The researchers said the review of 35 randomized controlled trials failed to show a consistent benefit in lowering the risk of heart attack or stroke, or for preventing deaths.

Here's a question that most of the medical community seems unwilling or unable to answer:  WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF CHOLESTEROL?

Cholesterol isn't just something that you get from eating.  Your body produces cholesterol on its own, and your body doesn't just randomly produce things without there being a purpose behind it.  It's essential for your health, folks.  You need cholesterol to live a healthy life.

My grandpa died with his cholesterol levels somewhere around 400 mg/dL.  He died at the age of 93, and I guarantee that his cholesterol levels didn't just spike up when he was 92.  Moreover, the whole "OMG STOP EATING MEAT IT WILL KILL YOU!" line of bullshit is wrong as well.  It ain't the cheeseburger from Wendy's that's doing the damage, it's the super-duper-large sized batch of fries you're horking down that's killing you.  The cheeseburger is probably the healthiest thing to eat at Wendy's.  Except for maybe their chili.  Which is made from left-over burger meat. 

Getting rid of cholesterol will not help you live longer.  Taking drugs to remove cholesterol will not help you live longer.  Eating clean will help you live longer, and by clean I mean hormone-free meats and dairy, fresh veggies, and no processed carbohydrates.  Don't take drugs, just change your diet.

But anyways, what do I know?

At this point, I don't trust any part of the government infected with the Democrat Party to do anything other than cheat, lie and steal.

Whaddya expect? He's a California Democrat

The guy is tailor-made to be the perfect villain, isn't he?

California Gov. Gavin Newsom, one of the most Aristocratic, elite politicians to come along, has some serious, quite large, tax delinquency issues, according to RedState:

This guy is pretty much a stereotypical Marxist.  While the peasants starve, he'll be at his dacha eating caviar and steak.  Rules?  Rules are for the little people.  Just like taxes.  Paying taxes is for the proles and other assorted gutter trash.  Connected Marxists like Gavin Newsom don't have to bother with those pesky taxes, right?

At this point, reading about another fucking Marxist from California not paying taxes, or breaking the law, or cozy-ing up with Castro is turning in to a "dog bites man" story.
