“The Worst Thing Any President Has Done in My Lifetime”

Granite Grok - Sat, 2023-09-09 16:30 +0000

I was going to do a detailed fisking of this, but I’m short on time and long on the need for content (this morning). And the truth is, while you probably come here to get our take, sometimes the thing speaks for itself, and in the case of Victor Davis Hanson, does it well.

Rather than muck it up too much beforehand, I’m going to leave this right here with you and let readers and commenters fill in the blanks.

This is excellent if you’ve not yet seen it and excellent after multiple views. It is at the very heart of how the left has undermined America since Barack Obama was elected in 2008.

The black man who destroyed decades of progress on race on purpose – and why.

Check it out.

Social Justice Policing Replaces Law Enforcement

Granite Grok - Sat, 2023-09-09 16:30 +0000

Many Americans are shocked by proposals to reduce police protection while opioid deaths skyrocket, borders are flung wide, and urban businesses are trashed and ransacked on national TV as political protests.

Yet increasingly, public safety servants are not investigating rape, burglary, and drug use but are enforcing social justice codes.

Police Protect Pride

In New York City, for instance, CNN recently reported that the Hate Crime Task Force is investigating “a criminal mischief pattern” of vandalism against Pride and transgender flags. This despite a 22% surge in major crimes in the city in 2022, including robbery and burglary, according to The New York Times.

Progressive dogma calls for simultaneously defunding and reprogramming police departments. A key ideological initiative is to “decarcerate,” to soften the enforcement of laws and undermine police authority. The kingpin of this jurisprudential experimentation in New York City is Alvin Bragg. According to Daily Signal writer Jarrett Stepman, “One of the crimes his office won’t prosecute is armed robberies of businesses. Suspects in those cases who make off with less than $1,000 in stolen goods will now be charged with the lesser crime of petty larceny, a misdemeanor. Among the other crimes his office will no longer prosecute are resisting arrest, fare beating, prostitution, and trespassing.”

The Pride flag destruction in NYC is part of a national spate of such incidents during Pride Month, even as San Francisco and other major cities succumb to a scourge of drugs, gang activities, and related crime. A recent burnout by a car on a Pride-flag crosswalk in Kirkland, WA, garnered national attention, as the once speech-tolerant left called for criminal sanctions for “hate speech.” USA Today reported on June 8:

“In the past week alone, Pride flags have been stolen, slashed or burned in at least five states, including California, Utah, Arizona, Nebraska and Pennsylvania. That’s on top of similar incidents in California and New York in May, including a man that defecated on a pride flag in Manhattan.”

Those defacing Pride and BLM insignia are expressing their political discontent with the government-imposed domination of the ideologies those symbols represent. This is free expression, clearly protected from government criminalization by constitutional law (unlike burglary, armed robbery, and business burning).

Ironically, when it comes to torching flags in political protest, the American flag has featured prominently as a controversial symbol. The Nazi flag is legally protected political speech, unquestionably hateful though it be. But the same liberties that permit the display of a Confederate or Nazi flag also permit the burning of Old Glory. Government is restricted in the United States from regulating citizens’ religious and political expression, and this includes extending special favor to the national flag.

As Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy observed in his concurrence in Texas v. Johnson: “I agree that the flag holds a lonely place of honor in an age when absolutes are distrusted and simple truths are burdened by unneeded apologetics. Though symbols often are what we ourselves make of them, the flag is constant in expressing beliefs Americans share, beliefs in law and peace, and that freedom which sustains the human spirit. The case here today forces recognition of the costs to which those beliefs commit us. It is poignant but fundamental that the flag protects those who hold it in contempt.”

Penalizing those who disagree with the symbols of rainbow-gay pride, trans-rights, LGBTQ2+, or skin-color-focused sloganeering displays intolerance. It is “poignant but fundamental” that these flags do not protect those who dare whisper discontent.

This was similarly expressed by the Supreme Court in United States v. Eichman: “Punishing desecration of the flag dilutes the very freedom that makes this emblem so revered, and worth revering.” Just so, punishing desecration of Pride and BLM flags dilutes the very freedoms symbolized by the American flag.

The government is bound by First Amendment shields from regulating expression, yet that is exactly what government protection of social justice symbols constitutes. In a recent case of Pride flag desecration in New Jersey, Harrison Township Mayor Lou Manzo exhibited the dangers of government censorship. In a Courier Post report: “’This incident also serves as a reminder that hateful minds still exist and simply ignoring it actually enables this behavior,’ [Manzo] continued … Township police have started a ‘full investigation,’ which includes contacting the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office and filing a bias incident form, the mayor said in a statement.”

A bias incident form is not likely to be seen for publicly burning an American flag. Burglars are not pursued or imprisoned, but stolen gay flags merit “full investigation.” The government now regulates “hateful minds.”

Social Justice or Real Justice?

In words that apply to Pride flags (even when burned hatefully), the 1989 Johnson decision warned: “If we were to hold that a State may forbid flag burning wherever it is likely to endanger the flag’s symbolic role … [w]e would be permitting a State to ‘prescribe what shall be orthodox’ by saying that one may burn the flag to convey one’s attitude toward it and its referents only if one does not endanger the flag’s representation of nationhood and national unity. To conclude that the government may permit designated symbols to be used to communicate only a limited set of messages would be to enter territory having no discernible or defensible boundaries.”

New Jersey, New York, Vermont, and other states enforce woke orthodoxy in a nation that permits its own flag to endure burning as a symbol of liberty. These other state-erected, protected, or endorsed ideological flags are symbols of political oppression, of freedoms denied. To say so by objecting to their public display by burning them is verboten.

America’s police are being employed as Taliban-like enforcers of the state woke religion, replete with criminal investigations of anyone who defaces the reverence extended to the rainbow flag. This while rising numbers of burglaries, rapes, and robberies go uninvestigated or are unpunished once proven. In this upside-down woke world, law enforcement is policing citizen expression to enforce the woke cult at the expense of public safety and free speech. Perhaps this new face of police abuse merits defunding.

The Time has Come for NH Towns to Ban Mask And Vaccines Mandates …

Granite Grok - Sat, 2023-09-09 15:00 +0000

It is naive of us to hope that we or they learned any lessons after the debacle of the original response to COVID. They aren’t reading the docs forced out into the public from Pfizer, the FDA, or the CDC. They don’t know what the experts had to admit was true.

That information needs to find its way into the hands of those who might listen because there is no debate about whether or not New Hampshire’s towns and cities have the authority to prohibit mandates. The governor refused to deny them that power during the last dance, claiming it was a matter of local control. No emergency orders were issued to protect your medical autonomy or health freedom. And there was no specific legislation to prevent towns from mandating masks (of which I am aware).

So, if you can mandate masks, you can also mandate that there shall be no mandate. That’s what happened in Huntington Beach, California. Yes, California.


Mayor Pro Tem Gracey Van Der Mark, who agendized the item, said during the council’s meeting that there have been reports of a possible COVID-19 resurgence, which could lead to more mandates.

“The City Council of Huntington Beach should take a stand against government imposing on individual liberties and broadly imposing response measures on individuals that have been proven to have little or no effectiveness,” Ms. Van Der Mark said while reading from the agenda item during the meeting.


The opposition responded with what I can only call an absurd response.


“None of us are public health experts, none of us are research experts. I’m the only person up here with a science and engineering background. For us to be making public health determinations when we’re a public policy board is wild,” he said.


The political reaction to COVID included elected or public officials (many) with no public health experience or expertise who openly disdained credentialed health experts who challenged or contradicted their approved response. More than a few of those elected officials went out of their way to call the testimony or public statements of experts on epidemiology, virology, and even air quality misinformation.

It was a very political response to an alleged public health issue because nothing about what happened after the first few weeks in March of 2020 was anything but political. Public health had nothing to do with it, so prohibiting top-down mask mandates in their jurisdictions is a critical act of local governments.

They exist to keep power closer to the people to protect them from tyranny if they are willing or able. Sadly, most are neither.

But individuals, and even business owners, should be free to decide if they want to mask up and let consumers and employees choose whether or not to take their “business” there or elsewhere.

It will become apparent, very quickly, how the people feel when they are allowed to vote with their feet, and anyone who trumpets the notion of local control needs to accept that this applies to every political unit down to families and individuals. And that by passing any mandate, you are denying them that.

From Cradle to Jihadi

Granite Grok - Sat, 2023-09-09 13:30 +0000

Every child who arrives into this world is a helpless infant at the mercy of others, not only to be fed, cleaned, and protected but also to be informed about the bewildering life we face. The parents, caretakers, and immediate family can teach the newborn only what they know and believe in themselves, which was handed down to them by the adults who raised them.

The development of a newborn in any family is influenced by many factors, among them how hands-on the parents are, how religious they are, and how they manage him to make him a good person, but also a person better than they are.

From its inception, Islam discovered the crucial secret of getting to the young mind early by adhering to the dictum: instruction in early childhood is akin to carving in a rock. Similarly goes the Jesuit saying: “Give me a child until he is seven, and I will give you the man.” The immense importance of getting early to the young mind is also emphasized by non-religious doctrines as diverse as the Freudian psychoanalytic theory and Watsonian behavioral psychology.

Thus, millions of infants annually end up in the care of people who themselves are imbued with a pathological Islamist belief system rooted in the mores and practices of the primitives of the Arabian Peninsula.

From very early on, the young child is indoctrinated in the belief that there is an omniscient, ever-vigilant Allah who observes everything a person does and even everything he contemplates. Nothing whatsoever escapes this omnipresent, all-knowing being. Allah keeps tabs and bestows incredibly desirable rewards if one behaves as told while dispensing unimaginably tortuous punishment if one strays.

The very young Muslim begins with questions at every step, with fears and hopes entangled with the need to survive and thrive. He is curious to know who he is. What is this world all about? What is he supposed to do, and how? Where is he headed? People die. Where do they go? And on and on. The information booths available to him in the fairground of life provide answers that may help relieve his innate existential anxiety. Here, the Islamic religion plays a critical role and holds great appeal. Muhammad’s religion offers a surefire answer for those willing to take it on faith.

These are precisely the kind of people Western countries, including the United States, have brought from the 7th century to 21st-century America and settled across the land without any consideration for the safety and security of the American people. What did they expect would happen once they rejected the West and declared jihad against all infidels? In no time at all, America, the greatest superpower on the planet, loses its power from within to these future jihadists, and out of fear of the racist label, Americans look the other way and remain silent.

Islam is a powerful magnet for the masses who are unable to deal with the uncertainties of life and death on their own. It is from this population, many already thoroughly indoctrinated from birth, that most die-hard jihadists emerge.

According to his religion, it is the bargain the jihadist makes. He surrenders totally to the religion of surrender in exchange for blanket security. Islam gives him all the answers he seeks for dealing with this world and promises him a lush and eternal paradise of Allah once he leaves it. It’s a bargain that some buy-in whole and some in part. Some refuse it and seek other means of dealing with their questions and unrelenting existential anxiety.

It is foolish to underestimate the dangers of Islamic mental manipulation. All Muslims share an Islamic cognitive repertoire with considerable variations. As with any population distribution, a significant majority forms the middle while minorities populate the extremes. Islamic apologists and many Muslims point to the middle as true Islam, thereby disassociating themselves from the two extremes and may even denounce those extremes as not being Muslims.

At one extreme are the nominal Muslims. These Muslims adhere loosely to the Islamic precepts and practices that ordinarily pose little threat to non-Muslims and may even reject some aspects of the religion.

At the other extreme are the die-hard fanatical jihadists, who present severe threats to non-Muslims, the so-called moderate Muslims (Muslims in name only), and the nominal Muslims.

Nothing is out of bounds to this extremist group in furthering its cause. Dissimulation, deception, and all manner of violence are their Quran-sanctioned tools. As part of their scheme, this evil group has adopted highly effective strategies for subjugating the West, its people, and its culture. In keeping with their supremacist racist cult, their god, Allah, is proclaimed the greatest god — Allah-o-Akbar. Yet, in English, one hears only the deceptive translation: God is great, and not the actual Arabic; Allah is the greatest.

History documents the pivotal role of small groups, even individuals, in precipitating monumentally important events. It is the energized, dedicated militant minority that often sparks movements and directs the course of human events. And it is the minority of Muslims, militant and highly motivated soldiers of Allah, are on the march to defeat the non-believing world and establish the Islamic caliphate.

Where Mandated Smart Meters and Appliances Become Tools of the Tyrannical State

Granite Grok - Sat, 2023-09-09 12:00 +0000

About a decade ago, give or take, smart meter “upgrades” caught the attention of many. Some folks said this was all in preparation for throttling your energy use, typically when you needed it most, and they were right.

Then came smart appliances accessible via Bluetooth or WiFi; many said these are not conveniences but contrivances. If you hook everything in your home to the internet, the powers that be, licit or illicit, could control anything they wanted. From thermostats to stoves, fridges, and dishwashers to home security (including cameras), it’s all wired together—even your TV.

Feel free to decide whether that’s likely to pose a problem for you, but in the UK, ‘Ministers’ are talking about mandating smart appliances so the Government can better manage the electric grid they’ve wrecked with unreliable wind and solar. An effort by The State to force you to make their failed policy “work.”


  • Ministers are pressing ahead with new legislation that could see families made to adopt “smart” appliances to ease pressure on the grid. Tory MPs are opposing the proposals, contained in the contentious Energy Bill which will come back before the Commons on Tuesday.
  • The Government insisted it was “in no way asking people to ration electricity” and that consumers will benefit in the form of cheaper bills.
  • Property owners who fail to comply with new energy efficiency rules could face prison under government plans that have sparked a backlash from Tory MPs.
  • Ministers want to grant themselves powers to create new criminal offences and increase civil penalties as part of efforts to hit net zero targets. Under the proposals, people who fall foul of regulations to reduce their energy consumption could face up to a year in prison and fines of up to £15,000.
  • “The ones we’ve found most offensive are where a business owner could face a year in prison for not having the right energy performance certificate or type of building certification.”


Years from now, much the way NZ PM Chris Hipkins insists that getting the COVID vaccine was your choice (or you could be quarantined in an armed detainment camp), UK MPs will laugh over cigars and brandy about how you were not made to ration electricity. It was your choice to have Smart appliances they could control … or none.

As Jo Nova notes.


Are they your appliances or the state’s? If you don’t control the power switch you know the answer.

When they call something “smart” we know it’s stupid — and the mind-boggling complexity of central agencies switching on and off ovens and heaters across the country to “fit” with the weather is a dystopia we don’t need to have. Do you need 90 minutes to roast a chook, or 120? It depends on the wind strength in Scotland. If the kids can’t get to bed early, or you can’t wash their clothes, they can just miss the first hour of school right?


You paid for them with money the Government let you keep, so we know whose appliances they think they are. It is also the Government’s infrastructure (even though they make the utilities pay for it) and their electricity (because they allowed generators to tap it and sell it, which the government taxes).

It sounds increasingly like communism with Chinese Characteristics, which works well if your home security, baby monitor, or pet peeping cameras are wireless. Big Brother will be able to snoop on you while Alexa, Google, and Facebook listen, and if you try to stop them, they’ll turn off your fridge or lower your thermostat a few degrees too many in January.

So, how does the beginning of that look? A lot like this.


“ERCOT entered emergency operations tonight due to a drop in both operating reserves and frequency. By entering EEA 2, ERCOT was able to utilize additional reserve resources to protect the reliability of the grid. No power outages associated with the ERCOT power grid were necessary. The Weather Watch remains in effect through Sept. 8 due to continued higher temperatures, high demand, and the potential for lower reserves.

Over-reliance on wind power in Texas during a heat wave. The wind stopped blowing, as it often does, especially where it gets hot. Frantic providers begged homeowners and businesses to use less, or there would be blackouts. With a bit of motivation from “regulators” or ‘bureaucrats,” or the right sort of politicians, the Government could tap into networked home appliances and make adjustments for the good of the community. Or, better yet, in the name of public health or something.

Mark my words, if we stay on the current trajectory, not long from now that’ll just happen, and you won’t be able to do a damn thing about it.

I wonder what the fine will be for turning off your router, and will they send a Bearcat and a SWAT team to your home to turn it back on?

Alejandro Mayorkas Is The Illegal Alien Union Boss

Granite Grok - Sat, 2023-09-09 10:30 +0000

Alejandro Mayorkas is supposed to be our Secretary of Homeland Security. By his title, you would think his job might be to keep illegal aliens out of our country, but not the inept Secretary. He is now offering the six million illegals who have crossed our borders during the Biden Presidency a work permit.

By their title, these people are in our country under illegal terms, but Mayorkas has told them to come on in, he would give them work permits, and the kicker assured them he would find them a job. Our Homeland Security Department is now a job placement agency for law-breaking non-citizens who should not have been allowed into the United States. Sometimes, I feel like a fiction writer, but you cannot make this stuff up.

Now, I cannot call these people asylum seekers; if they were, they would have applied for asylum in the first country they entered when they left their homeland. They did not because these people are not oppressed or threatened in the over 150 countries they have come from. They want to come to America, and a bogus asylum claim is their ticket. Biden, Harris, and Mayorkas are just the ticket-takers at what used to be our Southern Border.

There are currently six million Americans and hundreds of thousands of people who have given up and fallen off the list of unemployed. Mayorkas has not promised to place any of these Americans in paying jobs, but he has the illegals. These illegals have registered with that government to seek asylum. The backlog for these people to have a hearing is now three years. These people will be floating around the country, but now with a paying job, for years before they know if they can stay or be returned to their homeland. Does anyone think for a minute that any of these people will be deported? Of course not. They are now permanent inhabitants of America and overloading our social services, housing, and schools. They will drive down the wages of low-skilled labor and compete with Americans for a job. They will have the advantage here because they are proud customers of the Mayorkas Employment Agency. This insanity needs to stop.

The debacle situation at our Border is impacting every state in our union, and even Blue states are criticizing Joe Biden’s flawed immigration process. New York Mayor Adams is throwing his fury at the “Madman Governor” of Texas but is furious at Joe Biden. On Thursday, he falsely claimed he had turned the city around in his short term, but the influx of illegals is destroying his city. He says the city has been taking in over 10,000 illegals per month, and 21,000 non-English speaking students showed up at New York schools this week. Washington (Biden) is telling New York it is the teacher’s responsibility to bridge the language gap.

This action by Mayorkas will be tested in the courts, but he has all but assured his impeachment. He may be out of office before he ever has to place an illegal alien in their new job at McDonalds or Burger King.

The Dangers of K-12 Public Education

Granite Grok - Sat, 2023-09-09 01:30 +0000

Parental control, along with teachers, have long been victims of “government force” used as tools to target our children minds with anti-America, bureaucratic curriculums created by the U.S. Department of Education and UNESCO.

The Dangers of K-12 Public Education will be exposed by Shawn McBreairty at the Marion Gerrish Community Center, 39 West Broadway in Derry, NH on September 28th, 2023 – 6:30pm to 8:30pm.

A great book that challenges government schools called “Crimes Of The Educators” co-authored by Alex Newman and Sam Blumenfeld, reinforces McBreairty’s facts that back up witty cultural critic Henry L. Mencken’s prophetic statement (1880-1926):

“The aim of public education is not to spread enlightenment at all; it is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality.

We want to thank Russ Payne for this Contribution – Please direct yours to
You can review our ‘Op-Ed Guidelines‘ on the FAQ Page.

McBreairty has appeared on Tucker Carlson, the Ingrahm Angle, and Steve Bannon’s War Room, among many other TV and radio engagements. And look for his podcast called the “Maine Source of Truth.” He’ll be covering many of the crimes of the educational establishment, such as hyper-sexualization grooming in the classroom and CRT. Do they think parents are so naive that these will replace Godly – family disciplines, and core values needed to educate?

Elections Aren’t the Only Thing Joe Biden Steals

Granite Grok - Sat, 2023-09-09 00:00 +0000

I confess that the title is a bit hyperbolic only in that it will set a certain set of individuals who are themselves election deniers in denial (Democrats) into a rage, and that’s never a bad thing. But it’s true. Joe Biden is a crook and a thief, and it’s not just money or public office.

Related: Candidate Joe Biden Caught Plagiarizing Again and Again and Again

He is notorious for lying (sometimes referred to as embellishment when it is a Democrat) as well as lifting the work of greater men and women and claiming it (always accidentally and without malice) as his own. Until 2020 it was one of many flaws that left Joe Biden in a different basement with his own primary voters. He never managed more than 4% of their support prior to the great awakening.

Sadly, much like Biden, it was all bullsh!t. The man has committed more crimes of various sorts than perhaps any elected official in recent memory (perhaps only becasue the Clintons are better at choosing associates who like to commit suicide). One of which is plagiarism, an academic crime, one also of copyright violation, bad form, and poor judgment.

Not the well-known incidents chronicled here, nor the more recent ones recounted here, but a new one.


“Cite-checking involves formatting case citations under highly prescribed rules and searching Westlaw to make sure the cases haven’t been overruled or superseded,” Severino explained. “Because I was interested in the article’s topic (civil rights), I read a bunch of the cited cases all the way through.”

Severino said that at this point, he noticed that “a certain turn of phrase” in one of the opinions he was reading sounded “oddly familiar.”

“So, I turned back to Biden’s article, and there it was,” he said. “He had lifted language straight out of a [Supreme Court] opinion, changed a couple words, and called them his own. There were no quote marks and no footnote or anything else attributing the court as the source.”

“I then read the piece through again, and multiple other phrases sounded familiar,” he continued. “Turns out they, too, were plagiarized from opinions. I believe this merited rejecting the article outright for plagiarism, so I emailed the lead editor and presented the indisputable proof.”

The Harvard Journal on Legislation’s editors “covered for Biden,” according to Severino.


People have been covering for Joe Biden for 50 years, and we can’t help but wonder what else has managed to slip past or been massaged for then-Senator, later VP, and now President* Biden. You don’t suppose any of that was in Jonathan Alan’s latest Biden book, ‘Luckey.’ You’d think it might be but sales of the thing have been, much like the President’s* head, a bit soft.


The author of Joe Biden’s book “Lucky” sold so few copies that he did not even tour with it. Recent books about Joe Biden and his wife have failed to sell at all.

Jonathan Alan, the author of “Lucky” how Joe Biden won (stole) the 2020 election was only able to sell 10,000 books and skipped his tour.

Yet, they want us to believe this groper got 81 million votes!
Sorry, we’re still not buying it.


And neither is anyone else, the book, I mean. That other thing (the election) is still up for debate, though not open for it. The Left has done such a bang-up job ensuring that, much like racism, sexism, tokenism, elitism, and hypocrisy (to name but a few), election denying is something only they are allowed to do—just one more example of them covering for Joe Biden.

We Need To Normalize Slut-Shaming Again

Granite Grok - Fri, 2023-09-08 22:30 +0000

Young girls are growing up in a time where love and beauty are confused for sexual gratification. Rather than dream of their future husband and four children, they post videos dancing to songs about orgies. These girls have no idea what the lyrics mean, but all their favorite people are participating, so they do, too.

It is the same when puberty hits like a ton of bricks.

Overnight, they notice that boys and men change how they look at them. These girls are confused and nervous about the new attention and will naturally look for other women as role models. It’s easier to navigate the new playing field when you have virtuous women around you to guide your decisions or even celebrities who hold themselves to a certain standard in public that can be emulated. That’s not what is happening anymore.

The best modern women have to offer is Doja Cat invoking demons and Cardi B bragging about how she lured men with the promise of sex before drugging and robbing them.




With no female guidelines to follow, these girls will look to men. They’ll watch what men find funny, attractive, repulsive, etc., and use the data to model themselves as a suitable mate. Unfortunately, modern men have just as little to offer these girls as their counterparts. What are these girls to think other than that men find slutty women attractive after witnessing them spend their days lusting after Instagram models, subscribing to OnlyFans accounts, and consuming copious amounts of porn?



Our oversexualized society has warped the idea of feminine sexuality. The vapid hook-up culture is constantly pushed over love and marriage, leading women to believe that casual sex has no consequences. Almost no mainstream voices tell them there is another way to live that doesn’t involve sexualizing themselves for the enjoyment of strangers. Movies, music, and influencers are all selling women the same narrative – saving yourself for marriage is not a realistic goal. (ROOKE: Selfish Delusions About Purity Lead Men And Women Down A Lonely Rabbit Hole)

Not only are women incapable of containing their sexual urges, but men would never date a virgin even if they were. Instead, they encourage women to have sex with every Tom, Dick, and Harry in the bedroom until they find the right fit. Then, when men are done consuming these women like an all-you-can-eat buffet, society laughs and calls them used.

The cycle must stop. The women led into porn and OnlyFans don’t need to be mocked or denigrated. They need to be redeemed. Society, as a whole, needs to be “slut” shamed into caring about how we hold ourselves around the next generation of women. If not, we risk allowing them to join the others who have been oversexed and unloved.

There is an opportunity to show young girls that a different life is available to them. Life does not have to be marred by one-night stands. Good and honorable men are out there looking for the same in a wife.

We can teach them to be virtuous women by demanding high standards in our approach to sex and marriage — and it starts with simple things, like how we dress.

Dartmouth College is One of The Worst Schools in the Nation for Free Speech on Campus

Granite Grok - Fri, 2023-09-08 21:00 +0000

The Foundation for Individual Rights In Education has released its latest College Free Speech Rankings, and much attention is being paid to Harvard. It is, after all, Harvard. Out of 248 schools, it came in dead last for free speech, but Dartmouth College wasn’t much better.

The heart of Hanover notched an unrespectable 240th (out of 248).


  • 26% of students say shouting down a speaker to prevent them from speaking on campus is never acceptable.
  • 49% of students say they have rarely or never self-censored on campus.
  • 42% of students say they are not worried about damaging their reputation because someone misunderstands something they have said or done.
  • For every one conservative student, there are roughly 4.4 liberal students.


A quote from one student sums it up.


“there is no room for anything that doesn’t fall into the ‘hyperliberal’ category and people are not willing to see or understand other people’s perspectives.” – Class of 2025

This is not new or unexpected, but it is tragic. Dartmouth is an elite school and, as such, should honor the foundations of education, including debate. Suppose the only opinions anyone can express on either side of an issue (without fear) are the same. In that case, your graduates will be one-dimensional and ill-prepared for the real world.

Near the opposite end of the FIRE rankings is the University of New Hampshire. FIRE rated them at #72, making it a slightly more tolerable campus environment for opposing opinions, but not really. While UNH gets points for not going out of its way to suppress or oppress center-right opinion, it sounds like the student body and staff are allowed to do it anyway.


“In the past I was discriminated against by other students for having stickers on my laptop that expressed certain political ideologies. I was purposefully excluded from activities that occurred within class based on these stickers.” – Class of 2023


I’ve had past issues with FIRE’s favorable ranking for UNH, but likely because of things they are not measuring in their ranking. You have to choose what matters that can be measured across the board, so I don’t fault them for that – even though I think they have given UNH better grades than it deserved.

As for Dartmouth, they still have some work to do if they’d like to be the least tolerant campus in America regarding free speech. It shouldn’t be that hard. Hanover is filled with narrow-minded, intolerant leftists, and I feel confident they can get there from here.

Is Hunter Finally Becoming The Hunted

Granite Grok - Fri, 2023-09-08 19:30 +0000

Many people have protected Hunter Biden, but it appears that the walls around the infamous First Son may be crashing to the ground. Hunter has had his Dad, the Senator, Vice President, and President, covering for the depravities of the Son. With what we knew and are now learning about Joe Biden, the Son has not fallen far from the tree.

Whether his years of drug use, pornography production, womanizing, denouncing his illegitimate daughter in Arkansas, his tax issues, or his illegal gun possession, he has always had his Father and the system to keep him from accountability. When the Arkansas court was looking to serve papers on Hunter for a paternity suit involving his ex-girlfriend and their daughter, Hunter hid in the White House for weeks to avoid being served.

When he did not pay taxes on millions of dollars of income for two years, he blamed it on the illness of his drug use. He had the help of the IRS, the Justice Department, and a friendly special prosecutor to drag the tax case past the statute of limitations. Hunter thought he had escaped the Federal gun charge last month when his plea deal fell apart. He had tried to get immunity for any future charges as part of the deal. A Federal judge said no way. Hunter Biden is now looking at being indicted on the gun charges by the end of September. And the long-told story by Hunter of one gun has actually been proven to be two illegal handguns. The penalty for his crimes could amount to ten years in prison.

Weiss, who crafted the original plea deal, has done a 180 and is now pressing the case against Hunter. Many see these actions as an effort to protect the President at the expense of Hunter. Hunter may become a sacrificial lamb in this sordid case of Biden corruption. Will Hunter play along or show his true colors and turn on “The Big Guy?” Time will tell, but maybe this is all part of a master plan by the Democrats to solve the issue of Biden’s age and mental health. It could be that the 61% of people who do not want to see a Biden second term are finally being heard, and a Hunter Biden conviction on a gun charge could end the team of Biden and Harris for 2024.

In addition to Hunter, two other lambs may be brought to the sacrificial table. Attorney General Merrick Garland and Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas may also fall on the sword for Joe Biden. Both men have been proven to be a part of the Hunter Biden escape from justice. After decades of uselessness, Hunter may now serve a purpose, but only to his Father, The Big Guy. Hunter has to go down for this crime, or the Democrats will never be able to live it down. This scenario is a test for two of their biggest causes: gun control and equal use of the law. Maybe we can look forward to some of Hunter Biden’s best work from behind bars. Prison porn and lousy art are two of prison’s best products.

Atlantic Throws CAT 5 Hurricane Lee Toward the Eastern US

Granite Grok - Fri, 2023-09-08 18:00 +0000

There are currently two storms making their way across the Atlantic. Lee (currently a CAT 5 hurricane) and Margot (Tropical Storm). The estimated track for Margo suggests she will wander north away from land, but Lee is headed straight for us.




NOAA has indicated that the continued track of this storm is unclear, and it is too early to project, but it is expected to slow down.




I’m no hurricane forecaster, but Lee looks like he’s headed straight for Georgia and South Carolina. But that’s not guaranteed. The storm could suddenly kick north or south and fool around for a bit before deciding where to go.

Whatever happens, stay tuned for the regularly scheduled climate hysteria. There’s no stopping that.

Memestream News: Friday Edition

Granite Grok - Fri, 2023-09-08 16:30 +0000

To all those who are sending in memes, thank you!  Keep them coming please, as it helps me gather weaponry to fight the Left.  Please do share this post, and if you share an individual meme, consider mentioning you saw it on the Grok!

Speaking of, from this week, Monday Edition and Wednesday Edition.


*** Warning, a few possibly off-color ones, in case tender eyes are about ***









Because, for the most part, people like living and interacting with those who are similar, not “diverse”.




One of the “old saws” of the anti-gun movement was that the Founding Fathers didn’t anticipate repeating firearms.  To which I respond with this video.


The 2nd Amendment : For Muskets Only?!



Unfortunately I’ve never had any anti-gunner take me up on my bet that repeating arms were in existence before the American Revolution – I’ll propose that before the video if I show them at all.  Maybe it’s the fact that I try to make a $10,000 bet?  They definitely don’t want to put their money where their mouth is.

Of course, my other reply – especially for people on the internet – is to tell them to put any further replies onto a hand-crafted piece of parchment, written in cursive with a quill pen, and have it delivered to me by a guy on a horse.














Margaret Thatcher DISMANTLES Leftist Ideology in Less Than 30 Seconds



Incredible woman.  Like Reagan was an incredible man.  It’s my impression, though, that both would get chewed up in today’s environment… maybe I’m wrong but back then, the vast majority of those on the Left had at least some honor and decency.  No longer.  Both Thatcher and Reagan would get chewed up by the mob.




Specifically on Covid / medical – because it’s that important to highlight:


Masks – They’re Back! – American Thinker




The real reason, of course.





Don’t forget this video – Pfizer and the FDA and CDC knew:



And here’s another safety signal – not just ignored, but silenced.

Lest, in all of this, we forget the real Infection Death Rates.




Warning – OOH, this is about four minutes of your life you won’t get back.  OTOH, and IMHO of course, it needs to be watched.


That people can earn money doing sh*t like this, especially big money, tells me that – broadly – society is doomed.  Related:



Look, I appreciate needing to de-stress and relax.  I get it.  I understand the need for “mental bubble-gum”.  Again, I get it.  I also get the nostalgia for being a kid and not having a care in the world aside from whether your mother made casserole for dinner (yuk), or it was another pizza ordered (yum).  At one of my kids’ birthday parties I slapped on some roller skates – uh oh – and managed to do OK.  Fun.

But this is another step past that.

When adults with responsibilities attempt to completely disengage, that’s bad.  Being an adult – especially being a parent – is not easy nor is it meant to be.  IMHO, among other things, it is meant by Hashem to be a tempering experience to the steel of your soul.




Following up on my essay about depopulation is this bit of scholarship:

CHUDOV highlights the fantastic scholarship by Rintrah Radagast as it relates to IgG4 immune tolerance ‘class-switch’; can immune tolerance (Irrgang’s study) explain excess mortality tied to boosters? (

Remember the Cleveland Clinic study that found the more Jabs you take, the more often you catch it.  (And fascinating how many articles were up attempting to debunk this one; again – never believe anything until it’s been officially denied.)  And more:

Study: Boosted People Slowest to Clear COVID-19 (

All fairly technical but they all point to the same thing: the more Jabs you get, the more your immune system – ignoring all the other deleterious effects the Jab has on the immune system – gets trained to ignore the spike protein.  That’s double-plus ungood if that spike protein is attached to a live, wants-to-reproduce virus.

Closing: more about the culture of death emerging, e.g., in the UK:

British Court Rules That Competent & Conscious Patient Can Be Denied Life-Sustaining Treatment Against Her Will | ZeroHedge

She’s conscious, she communicates… she wants to try an experimental treatment to try and save her life.  Doctors simply want her to “accept” her fate and die.

As I understand it, they’ve already used AI to take the genetic sequence of the viruses to pull out what the spike protein is and how it looks.  Then used AI to “design” a modRNA sequence to – supposedly – force the cells to produce that structure.  So we’re already a couple of layers deep into AI use here.

Yes, I like learning details and having argumentation and all.  But what use is that when people are, literally, immune from any facts?




Collected links with commentary, very mildly organized:

What’s fascinating to me in this collection is the diversity of news stations all saying the precise same thing.  To the word.  I see CBS, ABC, Fox… surely NBC and others are there too.

If you want to know the truth about what’s happening in the world today, read widely, compare reports, and distrust sources that merely echo each other and parrot the “party line”.  Try to find those with a genuinely independent view of the situation, compare and contrast them to each other, and you’ll be much more likely to understand the situation.

I agree.  The problem is that this takes time.  A lot of time, and checking of notes and correlation.

Our First Crack-Cocaine Fueled, Androgynous-Identifying President?

Granite Grok - Fri, 2023-09-08 15:00 +0000

So Tucker Carlson recently interviewed a man who claims to have done crack-cocaine and had sex with Obama back in 1999. Here’s the interview. Make your own judgment. And an even more important thread, in my opinion, from Kyle Becker. Obama was a “Manchurian candidate” … he adopted Communism willingly and his mission was to bring down the American system. Americans, however, by-and-large refuse to accept this (like some in the NHGOP refuse to accept that New Hampshire is a Blue State and how New Hampshire became a Blue State (because that would mean it will take decades of hard work to turn the ship around)) and refuse to accept how successful Obama has been.

New Zealand PM Chris Hipkins Gives a Master Class in How to be a Gaslighting A**hole

Granite Grok - Fri, 2023-09-08 13:30 +0000

In the wake of the FDA’s insistence that it never told doctors not to prescribe Ivermectin or how their “not” doing that discourages patients from requesting or using it, New Zealand’s Prime Minister Chris “Resting Bitch Face” Hipkins may have gone and outdone them.


New Zealand PM Says the Government Didn’t Force Anyone to Take the Vaccine “In terms of the vaccine mandates, I acknowledge that it was a challenging time for people but they ultimately made their own choices. There was no compulsory vaccination. People made their own choices.”

You can watch as he delivers this bald-faced lie here.


While the Jab had scores of side effects, memory loss (apart from that which happens with incapacitation or death) was not one of them. Oh, and there’s that internet thing. COVID-19 “vaccines’ were mandated all over New Zealand. They were so enthusiastic about getting everyone jabbed that Chris Hipkins (himself) publicly stated that the government thought it so important that it would look for people who’d not been vaccinated to make sure they’d heard about how great it was and then get it, or else.



COVID-19 put the Zeal in New Zealand. They were earnest, eager, fervent fanatics. The government removed the requirement for a warrant to enter or search vehicles or premises in the name of public health, something New Hampshire’s dear leader, Gov. Sununu, did here in New Hampshire (not sure which came first, the Sununu or the New Zealand). The nice folks in NZ also had detainee centers and confinement facilities for the unvaccinated (they called it quarantine) and then ordered 500 members of their defense force to secure those areas so that no one would voluntarily sneak in (what other purpose could they have /snark!?).

None of which did any actual good, anyway. But according to Hipkins, it was always your choice (as in, you chose to be quarantined under armed guard?).

Like I said, gaslighting a**hole who will likely clarify his remarks at some point becasue we misunderstood what the word mandate means. Let me guess: it’s a nickname for a testicle? You were actually lobbing a gender slur about to lighten the mood in the detention centers and not insisting everyone receive an experimental pharmaceutical product with inadequate knowledge of its ingredients or side effects.

You could choose to get that vaccine or have all your liberties revoked—your choice.

Well, you got one thing right. Those were challenging times for the people.

Are You Ready for Project Blue Beam?

Granite Grok - Fri, 2023-09-08 12:00 +0000

If you’re a regular consumer of mainstream news you will have noticed this past year has seen a sharp uptick in talk of alien craft littering the skies of the world, especially the western world.  Just this past month the United States congress held committee meetings to hear the testimony of government personnel, including military aircraft pilots, who offer detailed accounts of their observations.

Testimonies include seeing orbicular craft approach and turn at speeds that defy the laws of physics as we know it.  Some accounts having seen the craft speed into the ocean and disappear with nary a ripple. A growing body of personnel claiming to have suffered irreparable brain damage from close encounters has found its way into our court system.

What is going on?  Are we really being visited by beings from elsewhere in our galaxy or the universe?

Despite the overwhelming scientific evidence that Earth is likely the only planet in the observable universe able to support human life, the vastness of the cosmos leaves room for the possibility we aren’t alone.  As of late, the United States government has gotten a sudden crisis of conscience and decided to come clean with the people after decades of tightly guarded secrecy in the area of alien encounters.  Or has it?

Area 51 is one of the most guarded and tightly controlled military bases in the world.  Rumors have floated over the years that it warehouses alien spacecraft, alien bodies, and an underground network of tunnels that resemble a subterranean city where top secret meetings take place among visitors from another galaxy or even dimension.  A small cadre of military and government personnel are allowed to communicate with these “superior” beings and the secret consensus is the world is not ready to meet them as we are poorly evolved and need a spiritual upgrade to handle both their presence and technology.

Who knows really?  The level of security surrounding Area 51 is so severe the signs outside the base say you will be shot on sight if you breach the perimeter.  You will be met by armed guards if you so much as disturb the surrounding terra firma within a few miles.  Whatever is going on there is deadly serious to the powers who oversee our government.

Enter Serge Monast.  Mr. Monast was a Canadian born investigative journalist, poet and essayist now famous for publishing a book titled “Project Blue Beam”.  In the early 1990s he started writing on the theme of the New World Order and conspiracies hatched by secret societies.  Back then his theories sounded crazy.  His story ends tragically when his children are taken from him by Canadian authorities claiming he was abusing them by keeping them out of government schools.  He was also accused of involvement in “networks of prohibited information”. Shortly after they are taken he is jailed then dies suddenly of a heart attack after being released, despite having no history of heart problems.  He left behind a wife and two children. He was 51 years old when he passed.

Eerily his co-investigator of these government exposes dies of a heart attack within a week.  He too had no history of heart problems.

What is Project Blue Beam?

Monast tells us it’s a four phase operation intended to move the world to accepting a new one world religion that is vital to achieving a new world order.  The culmination of which includes a leader he says will be the Anti-Christ.

Phase one sees “hoax” natural disasters, such as earthquakes, accompanied by hoax discoveries that unearth new archaeological finds revealing our knowledge of current religions to be erroneous or misunderstood.  These “proofs” are intended to call Christianity and Islam in particular into question while pointing us to this new spiritual enlightenment.

Phase two involves the “big space show in the sky”, meaning sudden and pervasive encounters with alien space craft.  Monast’s claim is they are “three dimensional holograms” accompanied by sounds and laser projections made possible by using the “sodium layer” in the atmosphere about 60 miles above the earth’s surface.  This may explain why these craft appear to defy the laws of physics – because they aren’t physical.  Included in this claim he explains the Soviets had developed super computers, essentially A.I., where they can program the internet to receive the knowledge of the new world order “messiah”.

A darker capability he says they’ve developed is being able project and induce suicidal thoughts into people’s brains.  Though once the stuff of 90’s comedies like “Real Genius”, Monast says this is critical to shaping the behaviors of people around the world.  His claim is they can personalize these attacks by targeting and individual’s unique frequency using a variety of ELF, VLF and LF waves.  This phase three method will allow the controllers to send God-like messages to people intended to deceive them into hearing a voice of “God” convincing them it is time to embrace this new spiritual enlightenment.

Rather than the theoretical ramblings of a mad-scientist follower Monast provides receipts.  He cites multiple U.S. Defense Department publications: ‘The Electromagnetic Spectrum and Low Intensity Conflict,’ by Captain Paul E. Tyler,  Medical Commandant, U.S. Navy; ‘Low Intensity Conflict and Modern Technology Edict,’ by Lt. Col. David G. Dean, USAF.  Apparently a Gen. Leonard Perez was involved with major defense contractor Loral Electro-Optical System out of Pasadena, CA in actually producing this capability.

In addition to the ability to control minds he says the economies of the world will be forced into a collapse around the time paper money is moving toward a digital currency.  This collapse will be the perfect pretext to establishing one, such as the CBDC that is currently being tested by the Federal Reserve.  This will give them the ability to control movement and resources, which he believes is the ultimate end-game.

Phase four may be the most difficult to believe because it’s the most difficult to pull off.  Monast states the United Nations will be behind a false attack from these aliens who target major cities around the world.  This draws nations to activate nuclear warfare, which then leads to a disarmament by the U.N.  This will be coupled by a false rapture event.  What is the rapture?  The rapture is known to Christians as the moment when Christ removes His church from the earth prior to the great tribulation period of seven years whereby He judges those who remain for having rejected His offer of salvation.

Of note, the rapture has become a popular teaching over the past one hundred or so years however it is hotly disputed among the faithful with many saying it’s only recently been taught.  Coupled with Monast’s theory and it causes one to wonder if the rapture wasn’t introduced for this very end-times event reason.  Who knows?

What we do know is this investigative journalist was making claims about things in the early 90s that weren’t even on the horizon, yet all now suddenly emerging around the same time:

  • Alien encounters now affirmed by the government
  • The rise of digital currency
  • The advent of A.I.
  • ID chips in animals and people
  • An increase in mind control techniques known to governments
  • The term New World Order used by multiple world leaders
  • The rise of communism which states it’s goal is to replace Christianity & Islam as the world religion
  • An increase in suicides and people claiming to “hear God”
  • A push to abolish traditional families & national borders
  • A rise in the knowledge and activity of secret societies
  • An increase in apparently manufactured natural disasters (forest fires, Maui DEW, weather modification)

Surely Serge Monast sounded like a crank to most of the people who bothered to entertain his theories back in the 80s and 90s.  However, thirty years later are his detractors looking like the foolishly naïve?

“The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.”

Masks Do Not Work, But Put It On

Granite Grok - Fri, 2023-09-08 10:30 +0000

There is no evidence that masks work at preventing the spread of COVID. It does not matter if it is cloth or paper. No one can give you definitive proof that a mask covering your nose and mouth will insulate you from the COVID-19 virus, but put it on.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the man in whose hands we put our lives for the duration of the Pandemic, admitted there was never any evidence that masks prevented the spread of the Pandemic and is now concerned that people will not adhere to mask mandates. Where in God’s name is the logic here? Don’t waste your time looking. It does not exist.

Jill Biden tested positive for COVID this week, and the President immediately reached into the top draw of the Resolute Desk, pulled out his trusty mask, and put it on. What a brave example for America and the World. When your wife or loved one contracts a bug, throw on the useless mask. The irony is the mask the President wore yesterday appears to be cloth. We were told during the Pandemic that cloth masks were useless. Also, Biden awarded the Medal of Honor to an octogenarian veteran. During remarks, the President and Captain Larry Taylor wore masks while they were apart on the stage. When it came to the actual presentation and the two men were in close proximity, both removed their masks—evidence of the masks’ farce and the sham perpetuated by the President.

This situation with the President comes as more than 100 universities and some school districts have implemented Mask Mandates. Some elementary school mandates are for the next ten days with no explanation of the time frame. That lack of explanation is probably because there is no logical explanation. There is a buzz and fear in Washington that the President may parlay these circumstances into a reason for him to declare a National Health Emergency. This would be a gold mine of opportunity for the hapless President and give him powers far beyond his office. This may even include him continuing to try and push through his Studen Loan Forgiveness Program. The Supreme Court has already ruled his attempt unconstitutional, but an emergency may trump the SCOTUS decision.

There are no facts or data to justify rash decisions made by President Joe Biden, but going into a Presidential Election Year, Biden will pull out all the tools at his disposal to steal the election from the Republicans. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have deplorable approval ratings for themselves and their policies. Over 75% of voters think the President is too old and unsuitable for his office. This Executive pair has no chance of winning a fair election and will do whatever they can to secure four more years in the White House. Legalities be damned!

Is It too Soon to Report Even MORE Bad News About Electric Vehicles?

Granite Grok - Fri, 2023-09-08 01:30 +0000

Before I impart the new bad news, yesterday, Rob Roper looked at Vermont’s ridiculous, misguided spending decisions regarding school buses. They don’t have enough drivers, so when they got some money, they ‘invested it’ in electric school buses (for whom they still don’t have enough drivers).

But Rob skipped or did not have room for a point I wanted to make here.

A regular diesel school bus, the extended version you typically see, weighs 15,000 pounds empty and about 30K full (give or take). An Electric school bus weighs 33-36 thousand pounds … empty and presumably 40-45K loaded. The wear and tear on roads and bridges will be greater, and while I’m not familiar with all the roads and bridges in Vermont, there are likely a few of them you could not legally cross in an EV school bus becasue of the weight.

What’s the answer to that? If I had to guess, our V-bros to the Left would want to spend millions to rebuild any bridge or road that can’t manage the weight. I’m unsure how they plan to do that without fossil fuels, but that’s not my problem. But I bet they’ll find an excuse and no mention whatsoever about the other shortcomings like EVs not being green, reduced range in the cold (and it gets cold in Vermont), as well as other issues like fire risk, battery life, replacement cost, end-of-life carbon footie prints, and so on – to which we can add this.


An electric vehicle abruptly stopped in the middle of a busy road near Salisbury, England, and remained immovable for most of the day, causing a nine-hour traffic bottleneck. …

A team of workers was unable to move the stranded EV because “the handbrakes of electric cars, and some other modern cars, are controlled electronically, unlike those of traditional petrol and diesel cars which are mechanical,” the report said.

“This means that the handbrake often locks when the power fails and the car cannot be pushed or towed,” it said.


One hefty 75,000.00 Dollar brick. Heavy as hell and stuck. This one blocked traffic for nine hours before they managed to get it out of the way, which – if I had to guess – resulted in a ton of unnecessary emissions from the backup. Another win for team green, to which we can add – don’t damage the thing while you’re trying to move or tow it. The slightest dent or damage could result in a costly repair.

My second “Is it too soon for a bit of bad news about EVs?” is this.


25 refrigerators.

That’s how much the additional electricity consumption per household would be if the average US home adopted electric vehicles (EVs).

Congressman Thomas Massie—an electrical engineer—revealed this information while discussing with Pete Buttigieg, the Secretary of Transportation, President Biden’s plan to have 50% of cars sold in the US be electric by 2030.

The current and future grid in most places will not be able to support each home running 25 refrigerators—not even close. Just look at California, where the grid is already buckling under the existing load.


That’s a lot of additional electricity that no one can deliver. We lack the generating capacity and the transmission infrastructure, but hey – 2030 is six years away (plus a few months). Why should we doubt that the same people who can’t get anything else right will have it solved in time? Because they won’t or can’t, and they probably know that too.

It’s like that other EV fail we discussed last year (Hurican Ian) that showed its ugly face again as hurricane Idalia drifted across the American Southeast. Lithium Car batteries do not respond well to being drenched, be it seawater or freshwater incusions. They can corrode quickly, fail, catch fire, or explode.


Electric vehicles catch fire after being exposed to saltwater from Hurricane Idalia

“Saltwater exposure can trigger combustion in lithium-ion batteries. If possible, transfer your vehicle to higher ground,” the Palm Beach fire department wrote in a Facebook post.

Two electric vehicles in Palm Beach, Florida caught fire after being exposed to saltwater from Hurricane Idalia, according to reports.

Officials from the fire department said that both cars were Teslas and stated that the rechargeable car batteries might combust if exposed to saltwater.

“If you own a hybrid or electric vehicle that has come into contact with saltwater due to recent flooding within the last 24 hours, it is crucial to relocate the vehicle from your garage without delay,” the department wrote in a Facebook post. “Saltwater exposure can trigger combustion in lithium-ion batteries. If possible, transfer your vehicle to higher ground.”

The warning also extended to other vehicles with lithium-ion batteries such as electric golf carts, scooters and bicycles.


As I noted ironically in 2022, how do they plan on classifying forest fires started by compromised EV batteries, regardless of the cause? Lithium batteries burn hot, fast, and furious, igniting everything around them. And how planet-saving is it when every time you have suitably inclement weather, every shoreline-loving prog (despite the threat of catastrophic sea-level rise) has to drive their EV (in an EV exodus traffic jam becasue all their neighbors are greenwashing along with them) to higher ground to ensure it doesn’t ignite and emit tons of toxic metals into the fragile biosphere.

Do we need special parking? Will they have to park 15 feet apart to avoid igniting nearby vehicles? And how will they get home and then back to the EV after the storm, and how much CO2 will that emit?

And how amusing it is that the solution is to buy a cheaper, increasingly more friendly combustion-engined vehicle.

My Laundry List of Reasons to NOT Vote for Vivek Ramaswamy

Granite Grok - Fri, 2023-09-08 00:00 +0000

With our First in The Nation Primary a few months away, inundated as we are with campaign events for, and emails from, various candidates for the Republican presidential nomination, this writer, initially a Ramaswamy supporter, thought it might be useful to examine some of the statements and positions taken by one of the so-called “leading” candidates, Vivek Ramaswamy.

Unfortunately, the result has been a laundry list of reasons NOT to vote for him, as follows:

It seems that he lacks any meaningful understanding of the Mideast- equating Israel with Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman & Indonesia. He says that he wants to cut previously promised aid to Israel and make sure that the surrounding Arab countries (and Indonesia) are given the same level of US foreign aid. But he fails to recognize that Israel was promised the level of US aid it receives to induce it to give up to Egypt the Sinai Peninsula and its revenue-producing oil wells. And make no mistake, the Islamic and highly anti-Semitic regimes of Saudi Arabia (the country of origin of most of the 9-11 terrorists), Qatar, Oman, and Indonesia are not real friends of the US and should not be “equated” in any way with the only US true friend in the Mideast, the State of Israel.

Ramaswamy’s insipid attempt to walk back his policy statement on Israel’s aid in an interview was so weak as to be pitiful.

It is a mystery why he would, in essence, provide Communist China (our greatest adversary in the world today) with a timetable under which it could try to take over Taiwan without US interference. Some might call this an unforced error on his part. It is completely unnecessary and actually quite dangerous.

Why would a serious candidate, the youngest in the current field, turn his back on young voters aged 18 to 24 by proposing to raise the voting age to 25? There is no realistic chance that the voting age will be increased to 25. Again, a completely unforced error indicative of a lack of thought.

In the same vein, why would a serious candidate propose requiring the passage of a citizenship exam for younger voters in order to qualify to vote? While it might be a good idea for anyone to have to pass such an exam in order to be eligible to vote, it is not going to happen, whether for young people or anyone else. Another unforced error. And such an exam requirement might actually be unconstitutional, sort of like a poll tax.

A Call to Unmask the Modern Comintern

Granite Grok - Thu, 2023-09-07 22:30 +0000

For any intelligent, clear-thinking US citizen, the very definition of an authoritarian society is along the lines of hell on Earth. In the history of the country, citizens have waged an incessant war to make certain that their children do not have to live in such a way— that the republic is kept.

Tens of thousands have migrated to the US to escape from the horrors of socialism.

This is not a partisan political statement. Whether or not you are one party in the USA or another does not change the reality of how a government functions. A republic is characterized by a parliamentary or legislative assembly governing affairs, as opposed to an autocratic or monarchial system where there is only one individual, a specific family, or a small group of oligarchs. The distinction to recognize is not by political affiliation but by knowledge and understanding of civics— regrettably, this field has been thrown under the bus. Present generations in many states lack an understanding of how to engage positively in society.

Hayek, in the early 1940s, wrote Road to Serfdom, a pivotal text in terms of economic and political understanding. In it, he argues that socialist systems inevitably gravitate towards increasingly totalitarian decisions unless the society is intentionally and directly steered back towards free market, democratic norms. Everything is subverted by the powers that be in their attempts to enrich themselves and maintain their power. These ideas are very relevant today.

Look no further than Deep Blue cities in the USA— these are places where one-party rule has been permitted to sustain for decades. Neither citizens nor the federal government have provided the necessary oversight to check a seemingly deliberate slide into a socialist hell. San Francisco, Chicago, and New York City have reached such a state of tyranny that basic necessities at CVS are kept under lock and key. This is no joke.

US citizens in these jurisdictions might argue it is necessary for this reason or that. It doesn’t matter what the reason is. The reality is as it is. This is no way to live. The drug epidemic in the rotting urban cores of these cities is similarly extreme. Needles litter the sidewalk, and intoxicated homeless vagrants stumble around in a zombified stupor. But who are the zombies— the addicts or the citizens who have allowed this reality to be manifested? The everyday citizens distracted by their screens and social circles must try very hard to remain ignorant of the increasing decay and rot.

The old adage of boiling frogs is terrifyingly accurate. The lived experience of US citizens has increasingly worsened, but at such a pace and in such a way that most Americans do not take action to stop it. They don’t see how bad it actually is and do not think of solutions. They are happy to think that there are no solutions at all. When turning off the fire is as simple as collectively organizing to revitalize municipal legislative bodies, taking the reigns of power away from the stupifying forces of the Democrat Party’s ideologues, citizens have largely balked in favor of attempting to carry on chasing dollars, swiping at their screens, or everything but engaging with their governments. The water is boiling and the frogs comment that it’s nice the place has been turned into a hot spring. They are unable to see, for whatever reason, the reality around them.

Socialists’ final grab for power before they are destroyed is always the lurch toward killing off all opposition. When it becomes apparent that they have lost public support and the people who are not in power turn against them, the answer is war— first attempts to conscript civilians into fighting in faraway battles where they are out of the way; then civil war to attempt to remove them from the picture entirely. The socialists lose because there are too few of them and enough of everyone else to ensure others endure to the next generation of leadership.

The workaround, again, is collective action. The caveat to remember is that these socialists are not simply a faction of US citizens. It is a global clique— a cabal— who have abused political angst to pull levers of power. The Comintern— the Communist International. A loosely affiliated group of similarly minded folks in New York, Geneva, Nairobi, Beijing, London, and a handful of other cities. It is, in many respects, forces outside the USA that are acting to install incompetent or intellectually subverted individuals in government positions.

That is why it is of paramount importance that in the USA, citizens work together to identify and restrict individuals associated with the modern Comintern. Those communists, as we can call them, do not have US citizens’ interests at heart. They only want to enrich themselves and their networks, typically at the expense of everyone else. They want to destroy everyone else’s prosperity so that they can prosper.

The modern Comintern represents a US national security threat. It must be exposed, and its members clearly shown for what they are on the public stage. There are better ways to manage progress so that everyone can prosper, not just that group of looters, warmongers, and robber barons.
