I remember when Forbes used to be a reputable magazine

 My dad is and was a financial whiz.  So having a magazine devoted to finance and investing to him was a no brainer.  That was actually my first introduction to Thomas Sowell.  Every edition of Forbes had an essay by Thomas Sowell on the very last page.  I spent a lot of time in my single digits asking my parents to tell me what a word meant because I had read it in Sowell's essay and I couldn't understand it.  They eventually introduced me to a dictionary so that I would stop bothering them.

After I moved out and joined the Army, my dad paid for subscriptions to both Forbes and National Review for my brother and I.  Every duty station, every new place, I had a Forbes magazine and a National Review showing up in my mail box.  

I can remember when he said he was stopping the subscription of National Review.  It was right after the "After Trump" edition came out, when NR exposed themselves as the Democrat fellating shitbag beltway swamp slugs they truly were.  Dad and I talked about it, we were both disgusted, and so we said "adios" to National Review after that.

In that span of time, Forbes also underwent a change for the worse.  They dropped Sowell, they picked up some newer writers, and the focus of their magazine changed.  It was less about how stocks were trending, and which area of investing was hot or cold, and it became more about the "Look at this new thing!  It's new!"  A lot more politics started coming into play, creeping into their supposed investment advice like mold over a wall.  The lists of the "Hot New Thing (under 30!)" or "Up and coming players in the investing world! (under 30!)".  Lots of "influential" people on that list, meaning that they were politically connected to the Obama administration. They would have multi-page sections talking about investment opportunities in places like Dubai or some other country that were actually advertisements, but they didn't identify themselves as ads.

I think it was when one of those popped up, talking about how great it is to move your manufacturing to China, that dad and I once again had a talk, and he mentioned that he wasn't getting any real good information out of Forbes anymore, and so it was time to cut the subscription.

Anyways....  All of that popped in to my head when I saw this:

The link goes to Instapundit, who has a whole compendium of how badly Forbes has screwed the pooch with their supposed reporting.

What is hilarious about this–actually there are many things hilarious about this–is that FTX is actually a darling of Forbes Magazine, who helped it vault to the top of the crypto world. Forbes hyped the company, hyped Sam Bankman-Fried as a genius, and along with the New York Times turned SBF into a hero, genius inventor. To the extent that Caroline the fraud was enabled, Forbes, Fortune Magazine, and the New York Times were the chief enablers.

The Times even listed Fried right alongside Janet Yellen, Zelensky, and Mark Zuckerberg as a speaker at a conference to be held…next week. After the collapse of the company–and their coverage of the firm’s collapse has been pathetic and sycophantic to SBF. The Times is covering its own ass, and Forbes has decided to do the same.

Right now I wouldn't take ANY investment advice from Forbes.  I'd rather trust Wall Street Bets on reddit.  I'd rather take the ramblings of a crackhead in Seattle as investment advice instead of listening to Forbes.  THEY PUSHED FTX AND ITS FOUNDER AS A SOUND INVESTMENT!  And if anyone, and I do mean anyone had bothered to due any kind of diligence in checking out a massive, multi-billion dollar crypto currency company, they would have found that the entire thing was a scam.














Sam Bankfraud-Fried was touted as some sort of financial genius.  But every picture I've ever seen of him makes him look like a fat, sloppy retard.  Looking at that list up there, detailing just about everything wrong with FTX and how it "operated", I would bet that I'm far more correct than the people who touted him as a genius.

But that didn't matter to Forbes, did it?  Especially with all those millions and billions of dollars being laundered through Ukraine and FTX back to the Democrat party.  Oh, you didn't hear about that?  The US Government under Democrat control (with stupid dipshit fuckstain party support) was giving it's billions to Ukraine.  Ukraine was "buying" FTX.  Billions of dollars worth.  And Sam Bankfraud-Fried was in turn giving at least 40 million dollars back to the Democrats.  And also the six stupid dipshit fuckstains who voted to impeach Trump.  Funny how that works, eh?

Anyways....  there's a trip down memory lane with me, tied in with current events.  Don't trust Forbes magazine.  They're converged, and they have been for quite some time.  And never, ever ever EVER allow yourself to be tricked into investing into a company that all the "smart people" tell you to invest in.  Because that's how FTX was allowed to happen.  In a just world, the people who pushed this scam would be publicly flogged and then hung from the neck until dead.  But we don't live in a just world, alas.

Yet another reason to jettison McConnell and McCarthy

 These so-called "leaders" do nothing but fill their pockets while playing failure theater.

What is most upsetting about the Democrats’ triumph — with youths preferring that party over Republicans by a whopping 28-point margin, according to exit polls — is that unique from most cycles, Republicans had one important advantage with young, particularly college-aged, voters: Democrats had spent the last two years uniquely torturing Gen Z with ineffective and abusive Covid policies.

Unfortunately, neither McConnell nor McCarthy did anything to capitalize on the incredible circumstances. They had zero plan for recruiting Gen Z voters, opting essentially to hand 10 percent of eligible voters to Democrats, which the left took full advantage of.

It's not just that the GOP establishment is a bunch of back-stabbing two-faced traitorous pieces of shit, because they absolutely are.  It's that they've been living in their bubble for so long that they're clueless about anything and anyone outside that bubble.  What's their strategy to court Gen Z voters?  They don't have one.  And right now I think that Gen Z has the chance to be the most conservative generation since the Reagan youth.

The Covidiacy fucked Gen Z over hard.

Student Loans, and pushing kids to get worthless degrees while accumulating hundreds of thousands of dollars of debt.  You could attack the university system in America AND court Gen Z at the same time.  Win-win!  But the GOPe can't, or won't.  Or they don't even understand why it's an issue.

The Democrats are about to get us sucked into WWIII over Ukraine, which is nothing more than a money laundering spot for US politicians.  Who's gonna fight that war?  Gen Z.

Hell, there's three right off the top of my head.  Give me a day to sit down and think about it and I could come up with a lot more reasons why Gen Z should be voting conservative.  But Bitch McConnell and McCarthy couldn't be fucking bothered.

All of the GOPe needs to be excised, like a gangrenous limb.

What's it called when a politician accidentally tells the truth?

 Because Chuckie Schumer, one of the most vile, evil, slimy pieces of shit to ever infest D.C., just did that.

Conservatives blasted Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer on Wednesday for comments he made supporting a path to citizenship for the nation’s illegal immigrant population.

The pro-abortion Democrat lamented the shortage of workers in the U.S. and pointed out the U.S. population is “not reproducing on its own with the same level that it used to.”

He argued the "only way we’re going to have a great future in America is if we welcome and embrace immigrants, the DREAMers and all of them, because our ultimate goal is to help the DREAMers, but get a path to citizenship for all 11 million or however many undocumented there are here.”  

If you were to point out that Democrats want to replace patriotic Americans with easily manipulated immigrants, you were called a conspiracy theorist.  Or as I like to call them these days, "prophets".  Because here's Satan's left-hand man calling for just that.

Of course, Chucky the Schmuck's big problem is that between the genital mutilation, homosexuality, abortion on demand and general anti-humanism on the Left, they're not reproducing.

Odd how religious folks on the right don't seem to have that problem.

And really, how many Leftists do we need to keep the country running?  Not very many at all.  You can't say the same for farmers.  Or roughnecks.  Or truckers.  But Leftists?  Sorry, I don't think we're going to miss it if a whole bunch of gender-studies degree holders suddenly disappear.  

What to Make of the Midterms?

Yep. Toldya

 Penis-loving Paul Pelosi didn't call an emergency, and he opened the door for the cops.

Gay hooker.  Drugs.  Paul Pelosi.  Mix well together.  The only question is how long this has been going on and the media covering it up.

Maybe this will help my grammar.


Let's just disband the DNC's Gestapo

 The Fucking Illegitimate Bastards admit that they raided Trump's house for nothing.

Not only did the FBI not find any nuclear bomb codes, but they also found no evidence that Trump was looking to “leverage, sell or use the government secrets.”

So Trump wasn’t selling nuclear secrets on Craigslist after all. Who knew? Everyone. And that likely includes the Department of Justice and the FBI.

Needless to say, WaPo couldn’t just admit the “Trump has nuclear secrets for sale” flapdoodle was the latest Hail Mary pass to send Trump to prison and that it proved to be another flaccid member of the “get Trump” orgy. They threw the idea in near the very end that they still might come up with something juicy:

The Fucking Illegitimate Bastards need to go.  We all know that nobody in the organization is going to be punished for any of the shit they do.  It's corrupt from the top down.  There's no accountability, especially to the American people.  From pushing the Steele dossier to holding on to Hunter's laptop to the raid on Mar a Lago to the SWAT teams handcuffing pro-life protesters in front of their families, every action the FBI has taken for YEARS has been partisan in nature.

Time to zero out their budget.

So the doc says I have the Kung Flu

 I'm calling bullshit.  I've had the Hong Kong Fluey before, and these symptoms are rather different from what I experienced the first time.  Knowing that the PCR tests pretty much detect any kind of viral RNA, I figure I have an upper respiratory infection of unknown origin.

"B-b-b-b-but DAAAAVE!  The doctor said so!"  Yeah.  I know.  And at this point, any diagnoses the doc gives me gets double and triple checked because after the past two-three years my level of trust in the medical system is fucking ZERO.  If you really need me to expound on that, go find all the quadruple jabbed people who are still coming down with the Peking Pox.

I'm hitting it with Musinex and ivermectin.  Yeah.  That stuff.  Daily doses of it.  Musinex to help my body clear out the crud in my chest, which it seems to be doing today in copious amounts.

Oh, and I don't have a fever.  In short, other than the crud in my chest, I really don't have any of the symptoms of the Beijing Bug.  So yeah.  I'm calling bullshit.

An open letter to the Holy See

 Not that it'll do any good, what with the Anti-Pope Jorge Bergoglio and his cabal of homosexual predators in control.

The Church, in expressing a moral evaluation of the vaccines, cannot fail to take into consideration the many elements that contribute to formulating an overall judgment. The Congregation cannot limit itself to the general theory of the moral lawfulness of the drug in itself – a lawfulness that is completely questionable given its ineffectiveness, the absence of tests of its genotoxicity and carcinogenicity, and the evidence of side-effects. Instead, the Congregation must speak out about this fact as soon as possible: Now that the complete uselessness of the serums “to stop or even prevent the epidemic” has been demonstrated, it can no longer be administered, and indeed there is a moral obligation for health authorities and drug companies to recall it as something dangerous and harmful, and for the individual faithful to refuse inoculation.

The thing is, I think that Archbishop Vigano knows that this letter is going to fall on deaf ears.  He knows that Bergoglio is a heretic.  He knows that the Vatican is being run by evil men.

So this letter isn't for Bergoglio, it's for us.  It's a reminder that we who have maintained our faith were right to do so.  We who refused to be guinea pigs for the elites were right to do so.

It's his way of reminding people like you and I that we were right, and there are more people like us than we can know about.

Thank you, Your Excellency.

And I'm sick

 Some sort of chest crud.  No fever.  No loss of smell or taste.  Just a bunch of crud in my chest that I can't cough up.  I'm on musinex right now.  And the military wants to give me a test to see if I have the Hong Kong Fluey.

Yeah.  Even if it says positive?  I don't have it.  Natural immunity, baby, coupled with the fact that those tests show positive for damn near anything.  Wave it in the air, test it, it comes back positive.  But I get my brain poked for Uncle Sam.

So I get to lay on the couch and watch a movie.  Yay.

Yes, the midterm elections were stolen

 The Red Wave fizzled because the GOP learned NOTHING from 2020 and left the Democrat fraud apparatus in place.

But the real proof the midterm was rigged and stolen is…FLORIDA.

In Florida the GOP won a landslide. DeSantis and Rubio and everyone else in the Florida GOP won in a red tsunami. The same one the polls showed was happening in the entire country.

Guess what Florida has? Florida has strict Voter ID, strict laws against voter fraud, severe prison terms for anyone caught trying to commit voter fraud, no mail-in ballots sent to every voter, no ballot drop boxes, no ballot harvesting, no ballots accepted for days after Election Day, no counting for days until the desired result is achieved by the Democrat Party.

Isn’t it a funny and strange coincidence that in that state, with all of those strict rules against cheating, the GOP red tsunami happened as predicted? But everywhere else, where there are no strict laws against voter fraud, and they allow all that cheating, the red tsunami fizzled. 

I'm looking at you, Arizona.  The pathetic shitshow of the Secretary of State being allowed to count the votes while she's running for Governor?  After being behind in the polls by 5 or 6%?  And now she's supposedly "winning", but the voting STILL isn't done yet?

Fraud.  It's fraud, plain and simple.  The voting machines being down in Maricopa county, all the bullshit, all the delaying tactics, they're not counting votes in Maricopa county they're just manufacturing them as they need them, and THAT is why it's taking so long.  And that's despite having a GOP governor, a GOP legislature, and a GOP AG for two years.  They did nothing to fix the problems they had in 2020, when the Dems stole that election, and so now the Dems are stealing this one too.  Hell, I've been saying for decades that Democrats only win the elections that they steal.  They were perfecting their ballot drop technique when I lived in Seattle.

John Brain-Damage Fetterman anyone?  Do you really think he won the election in Pennsylvania?  Well, that's quite possible given that the voters elected an actual dead guy there, but I could chalk that up to fraud as well.  Get those votes made!  Er, counted!

The GOP will never win at the federal level as long as they allow the Democrats to cheat and steal.  The solution is simple, which is why the GOP probably won't do it.

The only chance we have of recapturing our Republic is to return to real voting: one day, one man, one vote, in person, with identification, on a paper ballot, and getting a purple finger in return to prevent Repeaters. No early voting, no late voting, no drop boxes, no "curated" votes, no harvested votes, no absentee ballots for any reason other than active-duty military overseas. If you're sick and can't get to the polls, tough. If you've moved out of the country, tough. Anything else is not an election, but a rolling plebiscite whose parameters can be adjusted on a whim and which therefore renders elections functionally meaningless. And if you don't think so, ask yourself why, with control of the House of Representatives currently on knife edge, votes are still being counted in Democrat-friendly California.

As it is, we've seen that the GOP is just as corrupt as the Democrats are, and are more than willing to be the minority party so long as nobody pushes their snouts out of the trough.  

I'm buying more ammo.

I'll believe it when I see it

 When McConnell gets sent his walking orders, then I'll buy what you're selling.

“The old party is dead. Time to bury it. Build something new,” Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) wrote on social media. A day before, Hawley said Republican Senate leaders are failing to back initiatives that are supported by their voters.

“Washington Republicanism lost big Tuesday night. When your ‘agenda’ is cave to Big Pharma on insulin, cave to [Sen. Chuck] Schumer on gun control & Green New Deal (‘infrastructure’), and tease changes to Social Security and Medicare, you lose,” Hawley wrote over the weekend.

The GOP establishment is such a pack of two-faced backstabbing pieces of shit, and has been so for so long, that a large swath of people who vote R only do so because they can't stomach voting for the Anti-American Communist Democrats.  McConnell is pure establishment.  He's needed to go for decades.  So when the GOP actually tells him to take a hike and elects someone else as Minority Leader (as it's looking it will be), then I'll start to hope that maybe someone is going to take the concerns of this country seriously.
