Gonna be working all weekend

 Just a head's up, won't be much posting this weekend as I'm going to be busy doing the Army thing.

Blogroll is to the right.

Facts matter

And the fact is that the media has been lying in overdrive for years regarding Trump, but the January 6th reporting has been straight out of Pravda.

In fact, the only source for this claim is the New York Times story, which relied on unnamed officials. And even the Times has since been forced to add a note at the top of that story saying that “new information has emerged … that questions the initial cause of (Sicknick’s) death.”

There’s other evidence to show that the media had it all wrong. ProPublica reports that Sicknick texted his family Wednesday night to say that “he had been pepper-sprayed” (he didn’t say by whom) and “was in good spirits.” CNN later admitted that investigators have been “vexed by a lack of evidence that could prove someone caused his death.” More tellingly, a Capitol Police statement said Sicknick returned to his office after the melee and only later went to the hospital. So what caused his death? Nobody knows, but it clearly wasn’t caused by a hell-bent Trump mob.

Why is this important? As Greenwald explains, “Without Sicknick having his skull bashed in with a fire extinguisher, there were no deaths that day that could be attributed to deliberate violence by pro-Trump protesters.”

 But without the lies, the National Socialist Democrat Workers Party couldn't push for their dreams, could they?

Trump tells Haley to pound sand

 Why in the hell should Trump help the people who shit on him?  He shouldn't.

NIKKI HALEY reached out to former President DONALD TRUMP on Wednesday to request a sit-down at Mar-a-Lago, but a source familiar tells Playbook that he turned her down. The two haven’t spoken since the insurrection on Jan. 6, when Haley blasted Trump for inciting his supporters to storm the Capitol.

The GOP rode Trump's coattails in 2020, and the GOP establishment repaid him by stabbing him in the back at every opportunity.  Trump should use his clout to primary the hell out of the bastards, or in the case of Haley, just let her rot in obscurity.

Stole this from 90 Miles

Because it's appropriate

When they turn the pages of history
When these days have passed long ago
Will they read of us with sadness
For the seeds that we let grow
We turned our gaze
From the castles in the distance
Eyes cast down
On the path of least resistance

Cities full of hatred
Fear and lies
Withered hearts
And cruel tormented eyes
Scheming demons
Dressed in kingly guise
Beating down the multitude
And scoffing at the wise

The hypocrites are slandering
The sacred halls of Truth
Ancient nobles showering
Their bitterness on youth
Can't we find
The minds that made us strong
Can't we learn
To feel what's right and wrong

Well, shit

 Rush Limbaugh has died.

After getting his diagnosis, I'm amazed he lasted as long as he did.  He was a trail-blazer.  Every single conservative radio show owes their existence to Rush Limbaugh, and up to his last day on the air he was still the best.

I had an inkling this was coming sooner rather than later, after I heard a show in January where he admitted that he was having to speak from the back of his throat instead of using his diaphragm.  So I had my sad feelz then.  

This will cause a massive shift in daytime radio from here forward.  I don't know if anyone is capable of filling the hole he leaves.

Couple of linky love posts here

 An update on the Kung Flu, with a quote I thought to be appropriate.

As I and others have also been saying now for months, the federal government’s policy of awarding doctors more money if they report all respiratory disease as COVID has apparently cured the human race of the flu. (People might still be getting the flu, but doctors are reporting it routinely as the coronavirus.)

A quote that I heartily agree with:

...if we wanted to really be violent, there would have been special elections. - Christopher Greenstein

Bingo.  If the right had truly wanted to be violent on January 6th, there wouldn't be anything left standing.  

A primary for Mittens?  PLEASE!  DO IT!

Hannity brought the former Utah Congressman and Best-Selling Author on to talk about January 6th events and who was responsible for the breach. While interviewing Chaffetz, Hannity pressed him on whether he would consider running against Senator Mitt Romney in 2022.

Romney needs to be sent packing, almost as much as McConnell.

I'm teleworking today, so I might actually post stuff throughout the day as it goes along.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy Trump ripping Mitch McConnell a new ass

 Because fuck Mitch McConnell and every squishy establishment asshole along with him.

Mitch is a dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack, and if Republican Senators are going to stay with him, they will not win again. He will never do what needs to be done, or what is right for our Country. Where necessary and appropriate, I will back primary rivals who espouse Making America Great Again and our policy of America First. We want brilliant, strong, thoughtful, and compassionate leadership.

Prior to the pandemic, we produced the greatest economy and jobs numbers in the history of our Country, and likewise, our economic recovery after Covid was the best in the world. We cut taxes and regulations, rebuilt our military, took care of our Vets, became energy independent, built the wall and stopped the massive inflow of illegals into our Country, and so much more. And now, illegals are pouring in, pipelines are being stopped, taxes will be going up, and we will no longer be energy independent.

This is a big moment for our country, and we cannot let it pass by using third rate “leaders” to dictate our future!

Mitch McConnell needs to understand that this is not his Republican party any more.  This is Trump's party, and the reason it's Trump's party is because back-stabbing pieces of shit like John Boehner, Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell gave the GOP voters nowhere to go other than Trump.  So McConnell wanted to give a speech that essentially regurgitated DNC talking points on the Senate floor?  Seriously?  Fuck that traitorous piece of crap, and fuck anyone who supports him from this point forward.

Good on Trump for pissing all over Chuck Schumer's little bitch boy.

And here's yet another example of why I don't trust the "experts"

 Because they're anything but actual experts.  Or, if they do actually happen to be experts in their field, they abandon their expertise in favor of whatever will get them political power.

Some of those first 40,000 dead would have died due to lack of knowledge of how to mitigate the risk and treat vulnerable people.  That sucks but was unavoidable since we did not know which pharmaceutical and nutritional agents were effective.

95% of the rest, and 95% of those who get the virus and die today are doing so as a direct result of intentional actions by State Governors, the President of the United States both past and present, the CDC, the NIH and every single so-called "public health" institution including the hospitals, teaching and research universities including but not limited to IHME, Vanderbilt, Johns Hopkins and countless more.

No matter how bad you think the government is, it's worse.  Far worse.  

Our government -- including Federal, State and Local officials, in concert with both the medical system and our alleged "public health" agencies deliberately spread disease and caused death for the last year, directly and through depraved indifference, killing approximately 400,000 Americans thus far and is killing thousands more every single day.  We knew how to stop the death in nursing homes in February of 2020 and we knew how to stop 95% of the deaths in the general population this summer using cheap and available nutritional supplements and off-patent medications.  Rather than fulfill their legal duty both by their oaths of office and in the case of non-profits and public health organizations the duties set forth in their charter and the reason for their tax exemptions they instead conspired with commercial interests to allow and even promote such death so as to inculcate fear in the population for the purpose of political, ideological and financial gain.

Do I think the government allowed people to die in order to get Orange Man Bad out of office?  Yes.  I also think that there were parts of the government that were too stupid and ignorant to read anything about the success stories regarding this virus, and how to duplicate them.  I also think that portions of the government are so ideologically blinded that if their God, Dr. Fauci, flip-flopped yet again and said that they all need to drink camel urine to prevent the Kung Flu, they would be on a plane to the Middle East to get it straight from the source.

At best - and I do mean the absolute best case scenario, our government was so worthless and stupid that it allowed hundreds of thousands of people to die because they couldn't figure out what when doctors used Ivermectin or Hydroxychloriquine and it worked, you should give that a try.  That's the absolute best case scenario - complete and utter incompetence.  

But I don't think they're that incompetent.

Thomas Sowell on Why the Left HATES the Nuclear Family Structure

I stole this from 90 Miles from Tyranny.  When you look at the actions of the left, if they seem incomprehensible to you it's because you probably grew up in a stable family, while they're trying to destabilize the family.  A stable, nuclear family is abhorrent to the Left, because it gets in the way of their control.  Hell, listen to Sowell explain it, he does a better job than I can.

Stinking to high heaven

 We have some neighbors who seem to truly enjoy their highly scented laundry detergent and fabric softener.  I don't know exactly what houses are the worst offenders, but I can smell them drying their laundry from two blocks away.

As a guy who doesn't use scented soap or any fabric softener at all, it kind of makes me gag.  Just the massive, chemical-soaked aroma is enough to drive me inside.

True words, alas

 "Alas, it would appear that the spine McConnell had from 2017-20 was merely on loan from Trump."

I keep coming back to something my friend and colleague Kira Davis has been saying a lot lately: the 74+ million Trump voters aren’t simply going to go away, so dismissing and ignoring us is futile. The Democrats haven’t gotten that at all since the election. They’re perpetually obtuse, so that’s understandable.

It’s a shame that McConnell doesn’t get it. He spent a few years giving us a glimpse of what he could be but, sadly, he is who we always thought he was.

Mitch McConnell was a worthless, backstabbing sack of shit prior to Trump.  He was forced to actually do what the GOP voters wanted him to do not out of some sense of duty or obligation to the actual voters, but because he would lose his status as Majority leader if he didn't.  And now that Trump is gone, he's reverted right back to the same spineless swamp-dwelling piece of walking garbage that he was prior to Trump's election.

I expect the same from quite a few of the RINO Uni-Party shitstains.  Of course, Romney is nothing but a huge ego in an expensive suit with no convictions other than what gives him more inside-the-beltway status, but people in Utah are already trying to get him recalled.

I did not know this

 But I do now.

John Moses Browning receives the patent for his newest automatic pistol, chambered in a 45 caliber.  Yep.  The 1911.

Saint Valentine's Day

 A little historical context.

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.

Just a little reminder.
