UN Secretary General Thinks You are an Earth Killing Meteor

Tue, 2024-06-11 12:00 +0000

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres is not shy about who he thinks is to blame for the UN not raising enough revenue. It’s you. His NGO allies, friendly governments, and corporatist allies are all in desperate need of more cash. To get it, more of it, he is comparing you to an earth-killing meteor.

You are SMOD.

“Like the meteor that wiped out the dinosaurs, we [humans] are having an outsized impact. In the case of climate, we are not the dinosaurs; we are the meteor. We are not only in danger; we are the danger.”

“But we are also the solution,” he added.

“We” needs a good deal of clarification. When Guterres says we, he is not accusing black, brown, or yellow people. There is no racist inference that the issue is a result of second and third-world countries putting record-setting amounts of “emissions” into the atmosphere from the burning of dirty coal. Scrabbling out of poverty without any regard for the sorts of complications alleged by the UN’s Climate Pharisees is not what it hurtles toward earth, presaging its doom. It is white people. Westerners. The places that are burning cleaner, emitting less, and still somehow lifting people out of poverty (though less so since the climate dogma consumed the political liturgy of the day).

When Guterres says ‘We,’ he means Americans (mostly) and not because we’re the biggest emissions threat. That is China. India is close behind. Africa is emitting at a higher rate and as likely as not to catch up to China in part because the Sino-African alignment is the source of so many mining operations to extract the metals the Chinese need to make cheap “green” components to cripple the Wests energy infrastructure.

Parts and technology are manufactured with energy from burning massive amounts of coal. made cheap by low-wage or slave labor, the violations of whose human rights is a convenience the same Pharisees see fit to ignore.

Ignore it like the bulk of earth’s inconvenient climate history.

Ice core researcher Jorgen Peder Steffensen, from the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen, said that his research has shown that temperatures in Greenland 6,000 years ago “were 2.5 degrees warmer on average than today.”

Since temperature recording started at one of the coldest periods of the past 6,000 to 8,000 years, rising global temperatures are to be expected as part of a natural pattern.

“I agree completely that we have had a global temperature increase in the 20th century,” Steffensen said. “But an increase from what? Probably an increase from the lowest point we’ve had from the last 10,000 years.”

“And this means, that it will be very hard indeed to prove whether the increase of temperature in the 20th century was man-made or it’s a natural variation.”

We had arboreal forests in Greenland long before the invention of the UN or the SUV, but the Climateers deny that science is relevant. And so they must. If they were to agree that their science was not settled, that it had holes, and that the computer models were not accurate or even capable of proper projections, the money train might dry up. And this is all about money. Your money, controlled by them, by any means necessary, and a global climate catastrophe has been the preferred vehicle for decades.

Comparing you to an earth killer isn’t hyperbole to them, but it is ironic. The UN and the globalists are destroying the planet by their pursuit of global socialism through climate policy. More people will be miserable and discontent, and the earth will be in worse shape, absent the Western Democracy that it was with it.

It is the Climateers who are the earth-killing meteor, not you.

Morning View: Baseball – Black And White

Tue, 2024-06-11 10:00 +0000

NEWS ITEM: Major League Baseball announced on May 29 that it incorporated the statistics of more than 2,300 Negro Leagues players from 1920 to 1948 into its records, which are now available in a newly integrated online database.

“Today’s announcement is the first major step that makes the achievements of the players of the Negro Leagues available to fans via the official historical record,” the MLB said in a statement.

Sometimes, it’s still hard to imagine, even in 2024, that African-American baseball players were banned from Major League Baseball prior to 1947. It was what it was. How and why segregation was what it was can better be examined/explained by historians and sociologists. But baseball was certainly enriched when things finally opened up after Jackie Robinson’s 1947 debut with the Brooklyn Dodgers. His #42 was later retired by every MLB team.

To be sure, blacks played baseball before 1947. And while the old Negro Leagues didn’t have the financial resources that MLB did, the teams were rich in talent. Sadly, the times being what they were, there is a dearth of film records to document the wonderful action involving the Kansas City Monarchs, the Birmingham Black Barons, the Indianapolis Clowns, or the Baltimore Elite Giants, et al.

But while there’s not much in the way of You-Tube videos of Negro League action, there do exist numbers and statistics. And more than any other sport, baseball is about stats. And these numbers are cause for eternal, unresolvable debate. Could Ty Cobb have compiled a lifetime .367 batting average if he played in the 21st Century? Could Barry Bonds have enjoyed a 73-home run season in the dead ball era?

MLB’s inclusion of Negro League stats into its all-time records and statistical database naturally invites discussion.

Serious baseball fans have long considered Ty Cobb’s .367 lifetime batting average as one of MLB’s all-time unassailable records. But now, suddenly, the new record is Josh Gibson’s lifetime .373 average.

Who knew? Probably not many.

Back in the 1930’s Gibson was a star Negro League catcher for the Homestead Grays and the Pittsburgh Crawfords. By some accounts he hit around 800 home runs, but Negro League records credit him with 168. MLB recognizes 174 Gibson dingers. He hit .466 in 1943, easily surpassing the previous single-season modern big-league record of .424, set by Rogers Hornsby in 1924.

Hornsby’s .424 was another one of those supposedly “unassailable” big league records. But Gibson’s .466 in 1943 didn’t even win him a Negro League batting crown. That title went to Tetelo Vargas, who hit .471 that year during WWII. So, .471 is the new .424.

Traditionalists point out that Cobb played 3034 MLB games. Gibson is credited with only 602, which is less than four full MLB seasons’ worth. Cobb stole 897 bases in his 3034 games. Gibson stole 40 bases in his 602 games.

Unfortunately, there are stat gaps in the Negro Leagues’ record books. A full accounting of baseball achievements in those leagues can never be achieved.

And sadly, Gibson passed away at the age of 35 in 1947, four months before Robinson broke the color barrier.

Baseball fans—for whom the record book is a bible with all-time stats being chapter and verse— must suddenly embrace a new holy book with official text replacing old names and numbers with “new” ones. It’s not easy for some. Just as racial integration was sometimes a difficult process in the 20th Century, so too is statistical integration in the 21st Century.

Josh Gibson, Tetelo Vargas, and company are long gone. But the recent incorporation of Negro League numbers into MLB record books helps immortalize many underappreciated and underacknowledged players. Mentioning Gibson and Vargas here keeps their memories alive.

And while most of these stars never saw Fenway Park, MLB’s new statistical integration means their spirits are now present at that old ball yard—along with Babe Ruth’s and so many other baseball immortals.

Night Cap: Did The EU Just Make the Net-Zero Transition Illegal?

Tue, 2024-06-11 02:00 +0000

The European Union’s (EU) cabal of meddling ministers has passed a resolution “requiring firms and their upstream and downstream partners, including supply, production and distribution, to prevent, end or mitigate their adverse impact on human rights and the environment.”

“Today’s vote is a milestone for responsible business conduct and a considerable step towards ending the exploitation of people and the planet by cowboy companies. This law is a hard-fought compromise and the result of many years of tough negotiations. I am proud of what we have achieved with our progressive allies. In Parliament’s next mandate, we will fight not only for its swift implementation, but also for making Europe’s economy even more sustainable.”

The goal, at least the intention of these pointy-headed climate zombies, is to use the law to force private businesses to execute their climate doctrine. If you are not a responsible planetary partner, you’ll get fined. Ribbons of shame! But did anyone stop to think how all that supposed-planet-saving stuff meant to replace the irresponsible bits gets made? Most of it comes from China, the world’s leading emitter, polluter, and human rights violator.

If you want wind or solar power, getting it built without Chinese involvement in some portion of the procurement or fabrication process is difficult and expensive. Many rare earth metal mines operate with few or no environmental controls, polluting the people and their “indigenous” lands to a degree that makes them toxic and uninhabitable. You can’t grow healthy crops, and local water supplies are poisoned.

This also applies to the companies with which EU companies do business and to companies outside the EU that do business in the EU.

These firms will have to integrate due diligence into their policies, make related investments, seek contractual assurances from their partners, improve their business plan or provide support to small and medium-sized business partners to ensure they comply with new obligations. Companies will also have to adopt a transition plan to make their business model compatible with the Paris Agreement global warming limit of 1.5°C.

You will do homage to a false god whose world-ending mythology is a lie by admitting to an original sin that isn’t the cause and whose mitigation is not the cure. Failing to do so will result in mandatory tithing and a stern talking-to while making the other goals of the same EU ministers impossible to achieve.

I can only assume that somewhere in the fine print, we will find papal-like dispensations for violations as long as they advance the approved Net-Zero initiatives. Either that or this is just a scheme to bilk every business in the world with a pinky toe of traction among EU nations—more climate money laundering.

It’s stupid, is what it is.

What Is Morally Justifiable

Tue, 2024-06-11 00:00 +0000

There Is no such thing as “morally justifiable” except in the minds of Liberals. If we continue to let the Left enjoy a majority rule, we will continue to see our rights and privileges erode and have no one to blame but the face in the mirror. If you need proof that the electorate is ignorant of reality, you must look to Pennsylvania in 2022 and New Jersey in 2024. The voters elected two representatives for reelection who were dead. Pennsylvania Rep. Tony DeLuca was re-elected in the midterm elections even though he died a month before the election, and Rep. Donald Payne Jr. won his New Jersey primary more than a month after he died.

The reason I am detailing a lack of judgment on the Left is it is these folks who are deciding your rights they should restrict. We already see how they have gone after our cars, implementing unrealistic mandates when we will all be driving EVs regardless of the infrastructure not prepared or the demand in place. These folks are after our gas stoves, air conditioners, hot water heaters, washers/dryers, and dishwashers. The alternatives they recommend are, at best, inefficient and, at worst, use more energy than the item they replace.

The Left is forcing the population from the suburbs back into the city, making it too expensive to commute from a bedroom community to the metropolitan area to work. Their purpose is to make it easier to control the population when they have brought it closer together. They also see the suburbs as public land for solar and wind farms. Rather than addressing our failing existing power grid, they want to turn the countryside into a “Green” power grid. Can you picture the Rocky Mountains or Grand Canyon covered in solar panels and the skyline a massive row of windmills? That is what the Left calls beautiful, but it will not matter as we will not be able to afford to visit our natural wonders, or our travel will be prohibited.

The Greenies have targeted 2030 as the point in time when they will begin to restrict our air travel. Your right to free movement is being curtailed by the Left’s hypothesis that we are killing the planet and that America alone can fix the problem. These are the same people who said the Hunter Biden laptop was Russian disinformation and that Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide. Voluntary air travel will no longer exist, and flying will be restricted to only morally justifiable trips. Just as government censorship should never exist, nobody in public service at any level could, or should, determine what is morally justifiable for anyone but themselves.

Our freedoms are derived from God and guaranteed by our Constitution. Unless you are successful in transforming America into a grass-fed socialist country, then you go where you want to, and I will choose where and when to go my way. And another thing: I’ll drive my combustion engine vehicle to the airport.

In closing, what is morally justifiable? Is it aborting a fetus up to the moment of birth? Is it allowing 30 million illegal migrants to enter our country? Is it subjecting our children to transgender counseling and treatment? Is it using your Justice Department to target your political opponents? The Left has many issues to clean up before they can preach the high ground to the world.

Navigating the Modern Totalitarian Hellscape

Mon, 2024-06-10 22:00 +0000

Today’s global society is totalitarian. This is not really an opinionated statement, and the better that one understands its actuality, the faster we will be able to emerge from this dark age.

What is totalitarianism? This is a characterization of political, social, economic, and cultural factors that lead to a centralization of power. It is authoritarian in the sense that the powerholders wield authority maximally and violently. It is often akin to tyranny, where leadership exercises power unchecked, with abandon, with great prejudice, and destroys all dissent. What has brought us here?

There are many explanations and realistically this is a situation where the many conditions were ripe for the present power structure to arise.

One of the main causes is the technological dictatorship that is pervasive worldwide. A small handful of companies control massive flows of information. The individuals who own and direct these corporations have permitted their own ideological opinions to sway the direction of society. They are socialists and communists— products of the hard left. These individuals seem intent to project their worldview with such harsh application that they even prevent competition.

Competition itself is incredibly important for markets to work. Without it, the population essentially becomes slaves. Climbing the socioeconomic ladder becomes all but impossible, as kt depends not on merit and skill, but on identity and one’s ability to suck up to powerholders. It is dependent upon ego, rather than entrepreneurial talent.

Ego, itself, is typically the bane of a prosperous, happy society. When the individual ego of the executive— in the case of the state this is the monarch, president or prime minister— is expressed maximally and treated with sycophantic fanaticism, it becomes extremely dangerous for peace and order. If a leader lacks morality, as is the typical case in the USA and many English-speaking countries that have abandoned ethics in practice, the society burns and collapses.

We are seeing this now from the Washington-London-Paris power axis. A total embrace of totalitarianism has gripped the current generation of leadership, and they appear intent on allowing no opposition. Look no further than Mexico, where political opponents ha e been outright killed during the current federal elections. This is the dream of the hard leftist— to engender violence in order to secure power.

Washington, itself, has allowed itself to be consumed by Big Tech, Big Pharma, and Big Defense. These three corporate sectors have fused with the government in a virulent form of fascism. The current federal executive, which took power essentially as a junta, represents this modern fascist state.

Under this regime, citizens are kept under a heavy surveillance blanket. Freedom as a concept has been redefined to include guardrails against any action that might upset the status quo. It is all but impossible for the private citizen to prosper, to establish or grow entrepreneurial business venture, or even to have a family. Dissenting voices have been imprisoned. This is straight tyranny.

Modern US society is divided sharply into the capital holders, who mostly benefit from the technological infrastructure in place, and a vast underclass of workers who are forced under a glass ceiling. Using the power of the surveillance state, the corporatist bureaucracy has squeezed citizens’ savings maximally, while preventing real wage growth by sparking wild inflation.

The inflation itself through monetary debasement has been combined with actual attacks on agricultural and transportation infrastructure. The purpose is twofold— to destroy productive enterprise in order to limit supply, and to generate opportinities for disaster relief.

Simultaneously, the federal executive and its political apparatus has propagandized the population through outright lies and dishonest falsehoods about the state of the country. True information is suppressed in favor of narrative-based news that promotes racial division and foreign war.

Altogether, this amounts to an absolute hell for the ordinary citizen. To consider that some individual has dreamed up this campaign is so farfetched given the absolute evil a group of people must be possessed by in order to want to do this to their own countrymen. The alternative is that there is no definitive leadership, so in the chaos and anarchy of feeble attempts at progress, the end result is total disarray and destruction.

Through it all, there is no clear indication whether foreign influence plays any role. Realistically, given modern techniques in warfare, the level of control that can be exercised through digital internet-based screen-centered technologies combined with other forms of signals intelligence is at a point where individuals, small groups, and large crowds can be manipulated unless they are acutely aware and vigilant.

Awareness and vigilance is totally lacking.

The technocracy has seen to it that individuals rarely communicate information through spoken conversation. Instead, they are encouraged and forced through an array of aspects— a financial system that has been structured to minimally benefit private individual citizens, an infrastructural system that requires total obediance to state authority to utilize, a cultural system that prevents free travel through wealth restriction, a society that encourages blind zealotry favoring the fascists in government and corporations.

Through it all, if the individual citizen attempts to speak and participate in public discourse, one will find there are censorships in place. Individuals do not want to cooperate to build together, instead in favor of chasing fame or fortune on their own. Powerholders have no attention for the individual’s concerns, instead listening to whomever is the wealthiest, because that is a way the politician can gain wealth. Recently in Washington at a congressional hearing on the weaponization of the justice system, a private citizen attempted to speak and participate in discourse. A Democrat Party member on the committee rudely shouted down that civilian by saying, “You cannot speak here.”

What democratic society does not allow private citizens to speak in the federal legislative sessions? This is totally outrageous. The fact that nobody is speaking out about this reality shows clearly how bad the situation is. The citizenry has totally lost perspective on what a democracy is and how democracy is practiced— or even how a civil society functions.

Look at these congressional committees, where a sheepish audience sits perfeclty quiet and says nothing and reacts not at all to highly politicized conversation. There is no outcry when officials say the most ridiculous or outrageous things— even lies and falsehoods are allowed to air with no rebuke.

There must be leadership that can restore the actual practice of democracy, the power of the individual, and the cultivation of local communities.

“Useful Idiot”

Mon, 2024-06-10 20:00 +0000

“Useful idiot” describes someone who is manipulated into supporting a political cause, and who is too naive to see that he is being manipulated. It describes Terry Roy … yes, THAT TERRY ROY … pictured below preening for the camera with Alissandra Murray.

I understand that Roy is dependable conservative vote, which makes the above … normalizing the abnormal … even worse.

When Roy stands shoulder-to-shoulder, all smiles, with a person who believes that chemical castration of children, puberty-blockers, child-mastectomies of children are “gender-affirming medical care,” he is normalizing the abuse and exploitation of children. He is normalizing boys participating in girls sports … abortions of seven, eight, even nine-month old unborn babies … grooming in public schools … CRT in public schools. I could go on and on … but I assume you get the point.

It’s sad … really sad.

What If Statewide Candidates Need to Win a Majority of Counties Instead of Votes to Get Elected?

Mon, 2024-06-10 18:00 +0000

What if a candidate for statewide office needed to win a majority of counties? Each county is decided by its popular vote, and a majority of counties won in the state determine the victor—a form of Federalism at the state level.

Ties in states with even numbers of counties (NH has ten, for example) would probably go to the candidate with the most total votes statewide, pending other means of muddying up any process with too much clarity.

I like the idea in principle.

The practice would mitigate the effect of densely populated liberal idea ghettoes deciding elections. You can’t just win the counties with a big city in them. You must win enough counties to carry over 50% of the total.

The Texas GOP is thinking that this is a good idea.

Texas Republicans are working diligently to reverse the state’s inglorious slide into blue-state status:

Yay! Sorry. Most of the Democrats who run for elected office hate their state or America and want something less free, so I’m inclined to take an interest in ways that protect individuals and individual rights from collectivists and collectivism.

So?

If a state were to decide to use this system to allot its electoral votes, the political Left would find itself locked out of the presidency indefinitely. In perpetuity, the GOP would also maintain a supermajority in the US Senate and governor’s offices. The lower chambers would continue to be messy and subject to shifts in one direction or the other.

No, I doubt the idea would survive the media carpet bombing or the so-called justice system. But it’s a nifty idea to deal with a problem we discuss often. How do rural majorities protect their rights from electoral discrimination created by densely populated, primarily progressive cities?

If the landowners are not permitted to control the government that rules them simply because they own land, then why do what amounts to renters who own no land have the right to control them and their land? Yes, every legal vote should count, but absent the valve of a Republic, Democracy is nothing more than mob rule, which is why Democrats can’t shut up about it (democracy, I mean).

States like California, New York, Oregon, Washington State, Arizona, and New Mexico – to name but a few) would all turn Red at the state level overnight under such a scheme. No, those states will never vote on putting such a plan into place, but it makes me smile thinking about the left losing its mind anywhere it is tried.

I hope Texas finds a way to pass it and defend it. We don’t need a Blue Texas.

They also believed that their immediate responsibility would be to protect against what they called the counter revolution and they felt that this counter revolution could best be guarded against by creating and establishing reeducation centers in the Southwest where would take all the people who needed to be reeducated into the new way of thinking and teach them how things were going to be.

I asked, well, what is going to happen to those people that we can’t reeducate that are diehard capitalists and the reply was that they’d have to be eliminated. And when I pursued this further they estimated that they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers. And when I say eliminate I mean kill – 25 million people.

I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people most of which have graduate degrees from Columbia and other well known educational centers and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people and they were dead serious.”

Things You’ll Never See On Alissandra Murray’s X … The Nashville Manifesto

Mon, 2024-06-10 14:00 +0000

In Alissandra Murray’s alternative universe, she is being relentlessly hunted by Nazis, Neo-Nazis, MAGAs, etc., … and so is her “community.” She’s constantly telling us on her X (twitter) how courageous she is for carrying on in the face of all this. One thing you won’t see on her X, however, is the Nashville “manifesto” … obviously because it doesn’t mesh with the alternative universe that Murray chooses to live in:

The Jabbernaughts Will Do Anything to Protect the Right to Mandates

Mon, 2024-06-10 12:00 +0000

There is growing excitement about a recent 9th Circuit Court ruling in which the case was remanded to the lower court. The Court cited the plaintiff’s claims that the COVID-19 vaccine is a therapeutic (not a vaccine that prevents spread), and as such, the infamous Smallpox decision in Jacobson v. Massachusetts cannot apply.

“[T]he district court misapplied the Supreme Court’s decision in Jacobson v. Massachusetts, 197 U.S. 11 (1905), in concluding that the Policy survived rational basis review. Jacobson held that mandatory vaccinations were rationally related to preventing the spread of smallpox. Here, however, plaintiffs allege that the vaccine does not effectively prevent spread but only mitigates symptoms for the recipient and therefore is akin to a medical treatment, not a “traditional” vaccine. Taking plaintiffs’ allegations as true at this stage of litigation, plaintiffs plausibly alleged that the COVID-19 vaccine does not effectively “prevent the spread” of COVID-19. Thus, Jacobson does not apply.

Evidence demonstrates The Jabs’ inability to prevent infection or spread (and I’m not convinced it prevents severe COVID disease). The pandemic of the unvaccinated narrative is more proof. The Jabbed continued to get COVID, some multiple times, spreading it to other Jabbed in their cultish little passport-wielding cabals. But if the Jab prevented either infection or spread, they would be immune to the unvaccinated, especially if it were anything at all like the 96% effective vaccine they claimed. It was not and as we’ve reported previously, it appears to have increased the likelihood of reinfection.

The cure was (in reality) a highly effective magnet for the disease, which affirms the idea that if a vaccine, by definition, can effectively prevent the spread, this was not that.

The court isn’t saying it isn’t a vaccine; it is merely saying that in the context of the case before them, the plaintiff’s presumption invalidates the lower court’s use of Jacobson in its decision (at least that’s how I read it). The problem then becomes whether the CDC’s reimaging of the definition of a vaccine can overcome its own historical interpretation.  From “a product that stimulates a person’s immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease” to “a preparation that is used to stimulate the body’s immune response against diseases.” The former assumes the potential for infection prevention (like the smallpox inoculation). The latter expects infection but presumes to mitigate the severity.

The old definition is a fully operational border wall with guarded checkpoints and enforced restrictions—the new one claims some ability to mitigate problems after they are already in the country.

Small Details Matter

This may have no bearing on the case, but the COVID-19 “vaccine” was never tested to determine if it could prevent infection or spread. Another in a long list of lies pried out into the open to prove that advocates had no intention of honest or full disclosure pre-jab.

The evidence suggests neither it nor its booster offspring are capable of preventing infection or spread. A growing body of research tells us that in all but a few demographics, the health risks likely exceed any potential benefits. We know that natural immunity is superior, and the jab interferes with the acquisition of natural immunity. The long-term consequences of the Jabbed are a subject of ongoing research and debate.  We know a lot of bad things but we won’t know all of them for perhaps decades.

What we do know is that while COVID treatments do not meet the traditional definition of a vaccine (and that the court is acknowledging plaintiffs claims in context), the Public Health Industrial Complex will, moving forward, insist that in the name of science (to protect the power to mandate pharmaceuticals), vaccines don’t necessarily prevent infection or spread. This would give them an end around to any claims that to be a vaccine, they must.

So, the band plays on.

Morning View: Future Senator Emily Phillips the Underdog.

Mon, 2024-06-10 10:00 +0000

I will start by reminding the readers of what an abject disappointment our senate is, but to complain about problems is human.  Focusing on solutions is divine and freshman Rep Emily Phillips plans to be part of the solution by primarying Senator Gannon, a “Sharon Sheeple” in Senate Judiciary and a lawyer.

Our legislature is loaded with lawyers, and that’s a problem.

Just ask tireless RTK crusader Laurie Ortolano, who regularly laments the need to reform the courts, and she will tell you all kinds of stuff about that. It’s comparable to the situation of much-needed term limits and our federal legislature. It ain’t gonna happen, at least not in the ordinary way.

Anyway, back to our state legislature and lawyers, let’s take a trip down memory lane and review the race for the seat currently occupied by freshman Senator Murphy. Murphy is a well-liked businessman who stepped up as a team player to fill the void created by Mike the Russian’s untimely withdrawal.

Mike was a Hooksett rep well-liked by all but clearly expected to stay on “his side of the wall” by the establishment elite.  Yeah, keep up the good work as a rep, but you’re not welcome in the country club, um, I mean, Senate.  Mike was in a primary with former House Election Law Chair, Attorney Barbara Griffin, who was a cranky old hag when it came to good bills and how they were handled throughout the House process.  Another thing about her was her donors including lots of elite members of the in-club.  I don’t have that info readily handy, but anyone interested in digging will find donations from Senator Giuda, Ruth Ward, Clegg, and various other well-known people, businesses, and lobbying entities.  And it wasn’t just money because even my Senator had her as a guest on his show, but not Mike.

To be fair about that comment, I never followed up with him on whether or not she was invited or requested it. And I don’t think Mike made an appearance, nor do I know if he sought one or turned down an invitation. Either way, my point is that Barbara Griffin was the chosen favorite, and Mike the Russian was the underdog, but guess what! Underdog always saves Sweet Polly Purebred, and Mike won the primary.

I should also point out that the incumbent was not a candidate, and therefore, no advantage was to be had in that matter.

And here we are, back to the present, and Senator Gannon has the incumbent advantage.  Not only that, but I heard word on the street that Kelly Ayotte is paying for his campaign.  Readers are encouraged to fact-check that as they see fit.

Emily plans to visit Scanlan’s office at 9:45 am Thursday to file her candidacy right before the House meets for what’s expected to be an interesting and exciting day.  If you can make yourself available to cheer her on as she walks the hall to the SoS office and wave a sign, please do it.  If not, that’s understandable, but you can still show her some love with a donation or willingness to volunteer in one or more of the variety of campaign efforts.  Draining the swamp is an all-hands-on-deck mission.

Night Cap: Divided We Fall

Mon, 2024-06-10 02:00 +0000

The notion that we are a land divided isn’t something surprising to most of our readers. They see it and accept that it is a deliberate act by the political establishment, with the understanding that they (the uniparty) are dividing us to cement their ongoing rise to power.

But most Americans, and I’d add most non-Americans, given there are tens of millions of those loitering about unaccounted for, don’t have a clue about any of that. They get up, pay more for coffee, shake their head as they fill their tank with gas, and otherwise try to keep their head down. After all, look what happened to those parents at the school board meeting and so on. No, we don’t think you should be talking to children about sex in grade school, but we still have to live here.

The Dem-led uniparty knows which is why examples are made. So the rest of the prairie dogs stay in their holes. Rising costs and crime keep them seeking cover while rising taxes and prices rob their lifestyles from under them. And now you can’t go on vacation because when you get back, your home may have been absconded by foreigners.

These are the days in which we live, and even the duck and cover crowd is being divided into factions who, when they dare to suggest something outside the approved uniparty narrative, are labeled as extreme.

Konstantin Kisin, in a piece about “political extremism,” observes how the political left has corrupted Western culture.

It is not considered extreme to throw open the borders resulting in more people coming to Britain in 11 years of the Blair Government than came into Britain between the Battle of Hastings in 1066 and 1950.

It is not considered extreme to double Sweden’s foreign born population since the turn of the century. It is not considered extreme that this has resulted in Sweden having the highest rate of gang killings in Europe. It is not considered extreme that the governor of the Bank of Sweden was forced to acknowledge in an interview with the Financial Times that the growing crime problem is so serious, it risks damaging the country’s long-term economic growth.

It is not considered extreme that the United States has had over 8 million illegal immigrant “encounters” under the Biden Administration, with over 1.7 million known gotaways (illegal immigrants who evaded border patrols) currently residing in the United States without proper documentation or being vetted by immigration.

It is not considered extreme to introduce overtly sexual content into schools up and down the United States.

It is not considered extreme to promote the idea that children are capable of consenting to life-changing surgeries and hormonal interference in their bodies to treat mental disorders.

It is not considered extreme to replace pedestrian crossing lights in central London with LGBTQ+ signals.

It is not considered extreme to teach several generations of children to hate their country.

It is not considered extreme to prosecute and imprison people for making offensive jokes in private WhatsApp messages.

It is not considered extreme to put male rapists in female prisons.

It is not considered extreme to pass speech-restrictive legislation that could result in the police arresting comedians for jokes.

What is considered extreme is pointing out that there is a problem with any of this. As my readers know, objecting publicly to any of this will immediately earn you the dismissive label of “culture warrior.” Because destroying your country’s history and culture is not considered extreme, but defending it is.

You can probably manage a few more examples on your own, but I think this gets the point across and then some.

Social psychologist Jonathan Haidt reminded us in a soon-to-be-released TRIGGERnometry interview that human societies have historically been united by three things: common blood, common gods and common enemies.

Mass immigration and the endless celebration of what we euphemistically call “diversity” is increasingly eroding two of these. We do not have common blood in the way that our societies used to within living memory. As for common gods, our own growing atheism might have been sustainable had we not been busily importing people who have a very strong sense of faith in gods that are quite different from ours. Absent common blood and gods, we increasingly look for enemies within rather than uniting around the challenges we face from outside.

If by outside you mean outside our communities but inside or governments. So-called leaders are wholly responsible for the planned chaos. In the case of the US, they chose to ignore the law (borders, crime) to destabilize society. A practice I have long insisted has a deliberate purpose. To force the middle class to demand order, to which the Federal government will respond by nationalizing as much of the law enforcement apparatus as it can, followed by systemic auditing and cleansing of anyone in authority who doesn’t toe their line.

They did it in unions, Schools, Churches, universities, and lately, every branch of the armed services. They are doing it to the National Guard in states where they control it and would gladly use the same tactics on county and local law enforcement (Obama started working on this plan during his two terms).

If they succeed, no one will be permitted to dance to any tune but their own, and if that happens, the march to Marxism will be difficult to halt. Two-tiered justice from sea to rising sea and no one to stop armed federal agents because they will all be armed federal agents. You can’t have a proper despotism without it. So, they divide us from within and without, and being human, we find ourselves playing along. Overwhelmed by a deliberate lawlessness whose intention is to make it impossible for us to have anything in common but our disdain for each other.

I am not, by nature, a doom blogger, so I’d like to say we are about to turn a corner, but ‘They’ will do anything to prevent that, especially if it might ignite an actual insurrection. Nothing would please them more than civil war – it would give them the excuse they need. The problem there, however, is that we’re very close to the point where some meaningful number of divided Americans see it as the only way to restore the Republic, and I don’t have nearly enough range time in for that.

And November is Coming.

Take Your Hat Off … And Speak English

Mon, 2024-06-10 00:00 +0000

Check out the screenshot below … Jason Bonilla wears his cowboy hat while hectoring the Board of Mayor and Alderman. Not removing the hat is an intentional act of disrespect, which of course is the point.

Bonilla’s message is that the Mayor and the Aldermen … even the “allies” on the Board … are his moral-inferiors, not worthy of even the common courtesy of Bonilla removing his hat.

I am sure one or more of you bitter-clingers, who insists on denying that the Left loathes and despises you, is thinking … HOW DO YOU KNOW HE’S HECTORING THEM; HE’S SPEAKING IN SPANISH.

Speaking in Spanish is the hectoring, bitter-clingers. The message is “my community will NOT assimilate … we are and will remain a country within a country … with all the rights non-community-members have and additional rights and privileges to redress the wrongs the “colonizers” perpetrated on my community”:

Bonilla, obviously, is a Woke-Communist. But he also obviously is a grifter. His position and power depend on stoking grievances and pitting people against each other on the basis of ancestry, race, sex, etc. etc., etc.. Treating people as INDIVIDUALS and not simply as members of this aggrieved-community or that aggrieved-community is anathema to Bonilla because it is against his self-interest.

Cleansing the Rot in Washington

Sun, 2024-06-09 22:00 +0000

Appalachian folk musician Oliver Anthony hit the charts with the fire track “Rich Men North of Richmond” in 2021. To many Americans suffering under the tyrannical yoke of the authoritarian communist Biden junta, the song struck a nerve.

Ironically, its adoption by the Republican National Committee at the first presidential primary debate drew chagrin from Anthony, himself, who skewered Washington leadership as part of the problem the song identifies among established US powerholders.

The refrain goes:

Lord, knows they all just wanna have total control—

Wanna know what you think, wanna know what you do,

And they don’t think you know but I know that you do

This perfectly encapsulates the current power paradigm in the US and, more broadly, at the global scale. We live in a tyrannical governing system where the lived reality of the citizen is beset on all sides by guardrails, checks and balances, and invasive surveillance. There is no avenue for protection against the corporate/government surveillance apparatus short of total disconnection from society, compromising livelihood, and any chance at growing wealth. Simultaneously, citizens are squeezed from all directions to sacrifice hard-earned capital.

It is systematically almost totally impossible to accumulate capital. Citizens receive stipend-like salaries with little opportunity to focus on generating other forms of revenue and wealth. The system is designed so that salaries barely cover living expenses, and no politician has the intelligence or will to act to recalibrate the system. This must change.

We live in an era where the government has almost total control. This has been built by generations of establishment government officials consolidating power. They believe that any step in any other direction is a loss to them personally. Driven by endless greed, they persist unchecked, destroying any obstacles to inevitably consolidate their own power. Eventually, events will snap back in an explosive and violent way if they continue to persist.

The alternative is for these deep statist bureaucrats to step aside. Pursuing power for decades has left them dangerously short of wisdom. Many refer to them as children playing with fire. A sign of maturity is knowing when enough is enough and when to step aside peacefully. It’s time.

The quickest and easiest way to achieve this is to build consensus within the population. People must understand their own individual power to speak up and create. This process mist be supported by communities who already enjoy a perspective and level of personal freedom that allows disconnection from the tyrannical regimes in Washington, when they arise as they inevitably will in the natural ebb and flow of centralized political ideology.

Washington must be cleaned out. Must like students of George Washington University, Howard, Trinity, or Georgetown spend only several years living in Washington before moving on, so must be the political apparatus. The country overall will be stronger, wealthier, and happier if the political establishment is shattered and scattered nationwide than continuously allowed to rot in the swamps of Foggy Bottom.

Whose job is this? The responsibility lies with the citizenry, for certain. People must communicate with each other and vigilantly watch the federal government to ensure it is checked, and that the rotten ones are removed and sent back to the countryside— literally anywhere besides DC. The power currently rests also with the military-corporate surveillance apparatus and the Intelligence Community.

This collective group has brought rise to the notion of the deep state in its very own refusal to follow wise courses of action, instead favoring political ideologies and outdated doctrinal methods of population control. In the digital information era, dishonesty and deceit doesn’t work in the domestic sphere. It accelerates and catalyzes corruption, as we have seen in the disasterous Biden years. It’s the role of the IC and the military-corporate surveillance apparatus to root out corruption at the federal level and remove it from the governing system.

Total control is different than total awareness. In the latter, we can be aware, as a nation, of the ongoings and developments worldwide, but we don’t have to intervene. Certainly, no intervention is necessary on the homefront, and it is counterproduxtive, especially when undertaken along partisan lines. Awareness allows us to follow political, cultural, social and economic trends, but we must allow others to grow on their own.

Critically, the Washington rot must be removed in order to allow the national political system to operate democratically. That is how the country was built, and it might be maintained as such, for the betterment of America, and for the entire planet.

Governor Burgum Would Be an Enormous Mistake By Trump For Vice President

Sun, 2024-06-09 20:00 +0000

As an education researcher, I see Republican Governors fall for education fads pushed by education reformers all the time. Competency-based Education is one of those fads in New Hampshire that does nothing to improve the quality of education in our public schools.

When private schools reject these fads, there is a reason for that. If these fads were so great, homeschoolers and private schools would already be incorporating them into their school day.

Governor Doug Burgum is supposed to be on the short list of Vice President choices by Trump. This would be an enormous mistake because of what he did in North Dakota. Read about that here.

During Obama’s presidency, he said he was going to redesign public education. Most people probably missed that but those of us who know what this means, were not pleased. He was going to redesign public education into a workforce training model.

The workforce model is the dumbing down of public education which started with the Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards. After 14 years of this nonsense, our students still cannot compete with students in high-performing countries. But maybe academic excellence wasn’t the goal of  Bill Gates, and the other education reformers.

Federal law (Every Student Succeeds Act) pushes more technology on students in the classroom. Where has this helped improve academic outcomes?  It does profit the technology industry. Not only does the Ed Technology Industry benefit from the sales of its products, they are also able to data mine information on your children through the software.

If you look at the privacy policies attached to the Ed Tech Vendors, they are NOT private. It is true that Ed Tech Vendors follow the student privacy law, FERPA, but that law now has a LARGE gaping loophole in it. Schools are required to keep personal information private but there are now “exceptions” in the law. This makes it easier for tech companies and others on that list, to access your child’s personal information. The Federal Government is already set up to collect massive amounts of personal data on your children.

What does this have to do with Governor Burgum? Answer: He’s facilitating all of this in his state of North Dakota.

In a blog post from 2018, They’ve got trouble, up there in North Dakota, it goes through Burgum’s education policies while serving as Governor. It’s important to note that Burgum was elected with the financial assistance of Bill Gates:

A self-styled outsider candidate, Burgum won the governorship in 2016, with financial backing from Bill Gates, his largest campaign contributor.

Why would Gates put so much money into Burgum to serve as Governor? The same Gates who was working with disgraced Governor Cuomo to implement his workforce model in New York? The same financier of the failed, and dumbed down Common Core Standards?

In this article, you can see how Gov. Cuomo was working hand in hand with Gates’ to shift public education towards technology. Gov. Cuomo was implementing “Education Reimagined,” Which is the blueprint that Gates would like to implement in all local schools.

This blueprint would eliminate teachers who would be replaced by facilitators.  That shift has already started because this pedagogy is pushed in our Schools of Education, and many grant organizations require it. You can see that on page 10 in the column “role of adults.”  Some might think this is a good idea but there are many reasons why we should avoid this.

As technology replaces a teacher in the classroom, more information directed at children will come from their digital device. Parents already have a disadvantage by not being able to examine textbooks. What are their children learning? Screen time has become a bigger issue that concerns many parents. How do they take away the device in the evening if this is how they have to do their homework? It’s used as a way for students to cyber bully, and share naked photos of each other. Digitalized books are available through the school library APP that includes pornographic and obscene content.

You might be surprised to find out that the heads of the two largest teachers’ unions in the country signed on to Education Reimagined. Go to the last page and you will see signatures from Randi Weingarten, President of the American Federation of Teachers, and Lily Eskelsen, President of the National Education Association.  Most teachers have no idea that their union representation signed on to making the teaching profession obsolete.  These were the same people who fought to keep public schools closed during the pandemic. It makes you wonder why they were so eager to close public schools and send kids to the YMCA with a facilitator. Oh wait, that’s in the plan!

I suggest reading through this article on Burgum. Everything he did in North Dakota appears to follow the Gates education agenda. They even admit in the short video that this is an experiment on your children.

When I began researching education over two decades ago, everything led back to money. Who will profit from these changes and fads? This isn’t about what’s good for children. It’s about how much profit these vendors will make off of your child.  What will the federal government do with all of this information on your children, especially since they can now share that data with the U.S. Department of Labor and other agencies?

Technology is a good thing, but that can be taught in a separate class. Right now, the 1:1 Chromebooks and iPads are creating new problems for students. No one is willing to discuss any of this. Old computers are causing an enormous amount of waste for landfills, and are costly to maintain and replace.

Bill Gates got Common Core WRONG. But did he? If he never intended to improve public education but instead dumbed it down for workforce training, then he is right on target. Common Core was adopted in New Hampshire in 2010. You can see on the national assessment NAEP, there has been no improvement in public education. This was a big failed experiment on your kids.

 

Screenshot

Instead of learning from this mistake, they are doubling down. If Burgum becomes Vice President, it looks like Gates’ investment in him will really pay off—not for your children.

Voter ID For ME & The Dinner Table

Sun, 2024-06-09 18:00 +0000

I have the pleasure of being involved with The Dinner Table and their petition initiative for a Voter ID law in Maine. I have had a lifetime career in sales management and team activity. The organization and teamwork that I have seen over the last few months are nothing short of remarkable. Maine Representative Laurel Libby and Alex Titcomb are the creators of The Dinner Table, and they brought in a dynamo, Lana Hall, to coordinate the volunteers and activities. It is a fantastic team, and they are in complete sync. They stress the positive aspects of everything they do.

What is The Dinner Table all about? The Dinner Table (TDT) is a member-based, grassroots political action committee dedicated to advancing limited government, free enterprise, personal responsibility, and individual liberty. Our mission is to achieve a Conservative Majority in the State House of Representatives. The name is derived from a quote by one of the greatest conservative presidents in our lifetime, Ronald Reagan, who said: “All Great Change in America begins at The Dinner Table.” In Maine, we love to sit around the table and solve the world’s problems.

Two of the issues that are key to TDT, and the team has worked tirelessly to impact the future of these issues in The Pine Tree State, are Late-Term Abortion Bills and Voter ID. Members of the team spent countless hours at the statehouse during deliberations on the most liberal abortion laws in America, and although the outcome was not what we wanted and prayed for, we will continue the fight to see abortions at the time of birth happen no longer in Maine. Voter ID for ME is the current focus of TDT, as we have a big day coming up next Tuesday. June 11 is Primary Election Day in Maine, and an army of volunteers will be manning every polling station in Maine to request voters to sign our Voter ID petition. The petition aims to get Voter ID on the ballot, where the people can use their vote to decide its merits. The Maine legislature has repeatedly refused to act and strengthen our elections via legislation like Voter ID. Still, we have recourse provided through our First Amendment right to petition our government. We, the citizens, can do what the legislature will not and take the question directly to Maine voters at the ballot box!

This movement is not about preventing irregularities in the election process but to add credibility to my vote. For years, I have been offering my Driver’s License voluntarily when I vote because I am proud to be a citizen, realize that voting rights are unique to citizens, and ensure the concept of one person, one vote.

At The Dinner Table, we are about protecting and preserving our Rights, which are detailed and guaranteed in our Constitution. Requiring an approved ID when you pick up your early voting ballot or go to the polls on Election Day adds credibility to the voting process. We all need to feel confident in the outcome of our elections, and Voter ID is a step in that process.

When you visit the polls in Maine on Tuesday to cast your vote, look for our volunteer wearing a t-shirt with the Voter ID for ME logo, sign the petition, and feel good knowing you are taking action to ensure the legitimacy of Maine’s elections.

If you want to know more about The Dinner Table and become a member of the team working to bring back a conservative Maine, visit our website for more info at: https://dinnertableaction.com

Someone Poisoned Tractor Supply’s Watering Hole …

Sun, 2024-06-09 16:00 +0000

Every June, we learn things we didn’t want to know about businesses to whom we regularly give our customs—bastions of what we assumed to be common sense and Christian values or – at the very least – sensibly neutral enough to avoid divisive political fads. Just sell your wares and stay out of crazy town.

Only to find, Bam! Someone at corporate took them down the #woke road, and no one had the spine or balls to say no.

Read the whole thing, including the suggestions for how to proceed in the wake of this disappointing news.

• Don’t take it out on your local store — the vast majority of them are conservative and hate that corporate is pushing this on them.

• Email/Call corporate to respectfully state your position as a customer after learning this information. Let them know where you stand. Here’s their corporate office number that’s listed publicly: (615) 440-4600 — here is their executive team if you’d like to write them or leave them a message at the corporate number. Again, please be respectful: https://ir.tractorsupply.com/investor-relations/governance/executive-management/default.aspx — If anyone has more info on contacting them at publicly available emails, please reply in the comments but no doxxing private info, it violates X rules and it’s not right.

• Start buying what you can from other places until Tractor Supply makes REAL changes and shows that they respect the majority of their customers enough to not spend the money we give them on causes we’re deeply opposed to. As someone with a farm, I know this isn’t easy but if we don’t show them who their customers are then they’ll just keep doing this.

Lastly I want to thank those who’ve reached out to me in distress about the direction of the company. This post is for all the workers who wish they could speak out but fear losing their jobs.

As always, be nice. Threats and insults are not well-suited to the goal unless it is to get them to ignore your concerns—a tactic that applies universally when we’re trying to persuade. Don’t be the guy or gal they are talking about when they say they’ve gotten threats.

You can still be outraged and polite about it.

Pulpit Polity: The Only Catholic to Sign The Declaration of Independence

Sun, 2024-06-09 14:00 +0000

I hope your Memorial Day Celebrations were filled with honor and respect for our fallen warriors. May we never forget the millions of men and women who have given their lives so that we may enjoy our freedom today.

Let’s continue with a look at some of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. Studying the lives of these men will hopefully quicken in our hearts the love of the history of our country and the price they paid to create it.

Charles Carroll was one of the wealthiest signers of the Declaration of Independence and the only Catholic involved in its signing.

His father, Charles Carroll, also known as Charles Carroll the Settler, was from Ireland and migrated to America near Baltimore around 1659. He became prominent in the earliest stages of the city’s growth and purchased a large plantation. He served under Lord Baltimore as a judge and land office register. His son Charles Carroll was involved in the Political structuring of the new-found Nation.

He served on various committees for the cause of freedom but was not allowed to hold public office because he was Catholic.

He was famous for a series of articles he published in The First Citizen, decrying the abuse of the Governor of Maryland at the time. From this series of articles, he was labeled “a most flaming patriot.”

He is quoted as saying, “Without morals, a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying Christian religion (whose morality is so sublime and pure)…are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments.”

He missed the actual vote for the Declaration of Independence on July 2, 1776, but arrived ten days later to take his seat in Congress. On July 19th, Congress adopted a resolution to write the Declaration on parchment with attached signatures. This was a most serious step, for if they lost the war, they would lose everything, including their lives. Carroll was a millionaire, and this was a huge step for him and his family.

When signing he was questioned by John Hancock since he signed it Charles Carroll. Hancock noted that. “we could not tell which Charles Carroll is signing it” because he had the same name as his father. Charles took the pen again and finished it with the words “of Carrollton,” the name of his estate in Maryland.

He was the longest-living signer, dying at the great age of 96 on November 14th, 1832.

Until next time…

Steve Bannon Headed To Prison … And Trump Will Join Him In July

Sun, 2024-06-09 12:00 +0000

Trump ally Steve Bannon is headed to prison … quite conveniently for the BidenX-Regime at the height of campaign season. So he has been silenced. As Donald Trump will be silenced in July when “Judge” Merchan “sentences” him for all those “felonies” … effectively ending his campaign for President. It may be prison; it may be some type of house-arrest … but it’s coming.

How did we get here? A big part of the reason is that since January, 2021 the BidenX-Regime has been conducting political-prosecutions of its political enemies … and the Right (for the most part) has just, at best, SAT ON ITS ASS and done nothing. But just keep telling yourselves … IT CAN’T HAPPEN HERE! THEY WOULDN’T DARE! WE HAVE THE GUNS! Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.
