Dear KAG: 2021-05-07

Another Friday, and time to gather at Wolf’s Pub. Welcome, and sit back for the smackdown! I’ve had it with the liberals. Enough is enough. We are long past niceties.

Our drink special today is a dose of Liquid Liberty, aka Hard Cider. Americans were cider drinkers from before we became the United States of America. The Founding Fathers were drinkers and fermenters of hard cider. It was pretty much the drink of choice for a long while, until ale and beer slowly supplanted hard cider, and it fell on hard times. The Revolution, birthed partly in the many taverns of the colonies, was fueled on alcohol, according to this article.

John Adams for instance, enjoyed his hard cider:

“It’s tough to say, but John Adams may have been the biggest drinker of the Sons of Liberty. He began every day with a draft of hard cider before breakfast. He drank three glasses of Madeira, a wine fortified with rum, every night before bed. During the bad old days under British taxation, Adams wrote to his wife, “I am getting nothing that I can drink, and I believe I shall be sick from this cause alone.” He died at 90. Of old age.”

A bar tab at the time of the Constitutional Convention included eight bottles of hard cider, among an astonishing amount of other alcohol:

“It is impossible for Americans to accept the extent to which the Colonial period—including our most sacred political events—was suffused with alcohol. Protestant churches had wine with communion, the standard beverage at meals was beer or cider, and alcohol was served even at political gatherings. Booze was served at meetings of the Virginian and other state legislatures and, most of all, at the Constitutional Convention.

Indeed, we still have available the bar tab from a 1787 farewell party in Philadelphia for George Washington just days before the framers signed off on the Constitution. According to the bill preserved from the evening, the 55 attendees drank 54 bottles of Madeira, 60 bottles of claret, eight of whiskey, 22 of porter, eight of hard cider, 12 of beer, and seven bowls of alcoholic punch.”

Speaking of George Washington, from an article about the history of hard cider in America:

“George Washington won his election into the House of Burgesses in 1758 after serving up 144 gallons of hard cider and other beverages to voters.”

Keep on reading that article for some fun information about the “hard cider candidate” for president in the 1800s. He won. Ahem.

I had no idea that hard cider was served at the Battle of Concord. Yep.

Here’s a quirky and fun video on how to make hard cider:

Here’s a lovely article on drinking hard cider for Passover (it’s gluten free), with some info on the Founding Fathers. Gives some nice suggestions for cider choices today.

And check out Cider Scene for a history lesson on the Way Back history of hard cider.

Today, hard cider has made a big comeback. Funny how things come round at just the right time. Angry Orchard is probably one of the best known hard ciders today, but then it’s owned by the Boston Beer Company, which also owns Sam Adams. Here’s a page of ciders for your perusal.

There are many local breweries that also make hard cider. You should check out your own area. You might find a delicious cider made locally.

Head over to the bar for a nice selection of hard ciders. Then we can get down to brass tacks.


We’re supposed to be civil…with each other. Wolf’s rules are simple and finite:

If the American Revolutionaries can keep it together drinking hard cider during a battle then we can, too.

The Utree is for the knockdown stuff and to reconvene in case of emergency. On to the business.

An Open Letter to Liberals

Dear Liberal Friends (or not),

This letter has been rolling around in my head for awhile now, and I guess it’s time to let you know how I really feel about your politics. I’ve been quiet around you. I don’t share much because I know how it will cause division, and you’ve already caused enough division in our country. But I guess we are well past that now. I have seen how you treat others who are more open with their support of the Trumpian America First agenda.

You’re downright mean, nasty, uncivil, immoral and bullying. You are Anti-American. You are Un-American.

I want to address the hollowed out bubble you have lived in for many years. Some of you went to Ivy League schools. You got great jobs, met all the right people and settled in the typical enclaves of the elites. You live, work, shop, and educate your kids in these places where the people of color you see are often as educated and wealthy as you are. Have you noticed there’s no shortage of minorities in all sectors of our institutions? Surely, you see that. I mean, it’s right in front of your faces.

The hospitals in your area have lots of minority nurses and doctors. And yes, some of the more mundane jobs are done by minorities, like the landscapers, grocery clerks, and pool cleaners, and those who wipe the bottoms of the old people in nursing homes.

But somehow, you don’t see that plenty of white people are doing those mundane jobs, too. To you they are invisible. Just the color of their skin makes them not worthy of your paternal attention because…white privilege.

You’ve been convinced to feel guilty about your wealth and societal privileges. To feel better about it, you denigrate the great masses of working- and middle-class white people, who you call rednecks, racists, bigots, homophobic, ignorant and downright stupid.

You believe the traditional American values of patriotism, adherence to the Constitution, religious values and egalitarian tendencies are passé. You are a firm believer that the people in your economic and social class are the ones best suited to rule this great nation.

Pardon me, but YOUR ignorance is stunning. If only you would hear what Stephen Balch is saying:

What’s more, because our elites’ mentality derives from Cloud-Cuckoo Land, they can’t deliver good governance, protective diplomacy, or material prosperity.”

Toward a National Liberation Movement

If only you were somehow compelled to get to know the regular working-class and middle-class individuals that fill the everyday lives of MOST Americans. I wonder if you would be surprised to know that we all get along just fine.

Our communities have been integrated for decades. We have intermarried and raised kids together. Few think a thing about it. We appreciate each other’s diverse cultures. We work together, worship together and hob nob with each other.

Yes, there are Spanish-language masses on Sundays (that liberal dioceses have added), and there are Baptist churches that cater almost exclusively to blacks, but that is a choice we are all free to make. Are there still racist people? You bet. And they are as likely to be people of color as whites.

Your group of people has been very busy bringing back racial division. It’s you and your fellow Democrat/Socialists who are the racists and always have been. How terrible, and what an indictment of your political ideology. You have made everything about race, just when America was on the verge of making nothing about race.

The strategies of the politicians you favor have divided our national house like no other. You sit back in your wealthy enclave, protected from the outcome of these racist and divisive policies. Do you really think that you are improving the lot of anyone?

The liberal policies of the Great Society created an underclass of minorities (with TRILLIONS OF TAXPAYER DOLLARS), the descendants of which populate sections of our largest cities. Fatherless, directionless, these lost populations have turned to drugs and gangs and trafficking. It is this group of people who have most been harmed by liberals such as yourselves.

And your planners have been whipping up anger and despair in order to effect a revolution against the people who have done more to make America a prosperous and free nation—the plumbers and soldiers, and teachers and machinists, the waitresses and small business owners, the office workers and homemakers (people of all stripes). In short, the people who support an America First agenda, the Deplorables. A name with which your High Priestess, Hillary Clinton, baptized us.


In order to consolidate your power as elite rulers, New World Order citizens, you have given up even the pretense of a traditional morality. You know Joe Biden didn’t win. But the ends justifies the means to those destined to rule, eh?

Well, let me tell you something. You have lost any claim to a moral authority, let alone the authority to rule over us. And we aren’t going to give up our right to have an equal share in the governance of this great nation. You are not our betters. In fact, your nihilistic death-cult politics has put you far beneath the Average Joe.

You are the ones who are touting post-birth abortions, the mutilation of gender-confused kids, the eugenic fantasies of the academics amongst you. You are the ones who give the masses depraved entertainment that glorifies violence and hedonistic sex, and then point fingers at the mess society has become.

You have the money to mitigate the problems your politics and policies cause on a personal level (your kids are a mess, by the way.) The rest of us are left having to deal with the carnage on the ground with little resources to fix things.

For all your education and connections, you don’t know much at all. I consider you the useful tools in this revolution to overturn our Constitution and usher in a tyrannical world government. History tells us the useful tools always get consumed in the end.

However, the Deplorables will win and you will be saved. But I know you won’t be grateful. You’ll go to your graves lamenting the loss of authority and power of your tribe. The wokeness of the ruling class is a laughable testimony to your gullibility. Mark Twain once said, “All schools, all colleges, have two great functions: to confer, and to conceal valuable knowledge.”

My liberal friends, you have had hidden from you this valuable knowledge:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Your whole political identity is based on the lie that education, money, and position confer intrinsic worth. And that the higher you are in the Ivory Tower (of Babel), the more godlike you become.

I am no longer astonished at your blindness. It’s all been written about before in that Book you either willfully misinterpret or reject outright.

God have mercy on you all. You’re going to need it.

Most Sincerely,

One of 85 Million Deplorables

Thanks for the great post! Hard cider is on my list of things to do with my apples this fall. I am ordering the auto-syphon from the video. I am tired of racking wines the old-fashioned way!

Gail Combs

Just squeeze with skins on and bottle it. The yeast is naturally on the skins of the apples. (We found that out the hard way.)

This is the bubbler you place on the top to keep the air out so it dies not go to vinegar.

How to Make Hard Cider in 5 Easy Steps
We had a cider press like the one pictured when we lived down the street from Johnny Appleseed’s birth place.


We found the hardware to build a press online. We used oak. It is beautiful and works awesome!


Alternatively, you can treat it like brewing beer and pitch yeast into it — depending on your appetite for risk, before or after heating it to a near boil (beer goes through about an hour of rolling boil to extract carbohydrates from the malts).


Navarro will continue his interview (he’s been killin’ it, as always) in the next segment.

Right now, on War Room.

Hmm…maybe it’s just me, but it looks like something is MISSING here:


Lofo’s don’t read the fine print.

The fact that there is, indeed, an “insert” … is good enough for them.

Plausible deniability push – “printing error”.



Strangely enough before I come here I was watching this.
So if this guy is genuine we may soon know what is in it.

I hope you find & share the follow-up results on these tests…Thanks for this very important & interesting info!

OMG. Well alrighty then.

And now for something silly. Keep scrolling if wild theories offend you.

Today I was introduced to the “Melinda Gates is really actor Kevin Kline” theory. Apparently the ex-girlfriend Bill Gates spends a weekend with every year is married to Kevin Kline’s brother, and Melinda bears some resemblance to the Kline family. Not saying I believe this, although I don’t put it past these lying weirdos, either. Only posting this because I find it amusing in the same way I find “Donald Trump is John Titor” theories amusing.

The musculature of the torso – the shoulders, and the arms!

It looks like this individual could get in the boxing ring …

Proportions are wrong, IMO.

They LIKE putting it in our FACE, yes?

Austin Powers (real movie quote?): “That’s a man, baby!”


The hands….no way is that a XX.

Deplorable Patriot

My SIL has hands like that.

But, still, this person pumps heavy iron, that’s for sure.


Let’s say that ones sibling is a fantastically famous – and rich – actor.

From what I know of siblings, of massively disparate means, those who strike it rich (“success”) – and pay the price for it – don’t give a *hoot* about any other “family”.

Suddenly, the opportunity presents itself to that sibling to “play a role”, and cash in oneself. (There is such a thing as envy.)

The initiation cost is to get rid of ones Adam’s apple, surgically, so that the voice and look signal “femininity”.

Too much to pay? Maybe not, in order to “live the life”.

The sibling joins the *guild* of actors – all of whom must play whatever role is offered to / required of them. No compromise, nor refusal, is allowed. It’s a one-time, one-way ticket to fame, and to fortune (and on the back-end, to hell).

But they don’t think about the end, the afterward – just the “now”.

So they become rich, they have all sorts of percs, and they are suddenly part of the “in” crowd. The life-long suffering in the shadow of the “success” of ones brother / sister is near-instantly dispelled.

No more envy, no more coveting – *finally*, one can capitalize on ones family relationship. One finally has “worth”, in the eyes of others.

The psychological benefits can be most tempting, most alluring. Yet they ignore the final costs.

At last, one earns membership in THE BIG CLUB.

They LIVE the comedy, in the material world … and disregard the consequences of eternal TRAGEDY, in the next.


But they made their own bed, yes?

Gail Combs

Whatever ‘IT’ is, ‘IT’ is really ugly!

Cuppa Covfefe

Since they’re all in the Gore-Bull warming scam too, I posit that this is yet another Kline relative, Heidi D. Kline…. 🙂

(gal who looks like a Mann…)….


That has to be a photo-shopped head of Melvin Gates on someone else’s body… 😂 🤣 😂

Sylvia Avery



I always suspected she was a dude!

Deplorable Patriot

There’s another Kline brother and a sister. Could be one of their offspring, too.


LOL! Kline is 6’1″; she is 5’5″.

But nowhere did people cheer more wildly than in America 👍


Only the ungodly celebrated, Scott!!! On a daily basis, we can see their disdain for America and Americans.


Well, since Washington, D.C. appears to be the heart of the Beast and the center of all evil, I was thinking it was the Godly people, and all the people who are not on the side of evil, who cheered 🙂


Oh, ok – slow brain operation this AM – gotcha!


Donald J. Trump10:11am May 7, 2021
At 6:31 in the morning on November 4th, a dump of 149,772 votes came in to the State of Michigan. Biden received 96% of those votes and the State miraculously went to him. Has the Michigan State Senate started their review of the Fraudulent Presidential Election of 2020 yet, or are they about to start? If not, they should be run out of office. Likewise, at 3:42 in the morning, a dump of 143,379 votes came in to the state of Wisconsin, also miraculously, given to Biden. Where did these “votes” come from? Both were State Election changing events, and that is on top of the other corruption without even including the fact that neither state got Legislative approval, which is required under the United States Constitution.

Donald J. Trump9:03am May 7, 2021
The Federal Election Commission in Washington, D.C., has totally dropped the phony case against me concerning payments to women relative to the 2016 Presidential Election. It was a case built on lies from Michael Cohen, a corrupt and convicted lawyer, a lawyer in fact who was so corrupt he was sentenced to three years in jail for lying to Congress and many other things having nothing to do with me. I thank the Commission for their decision, ending this chapter of Fake News. Between two sleazebag lawyers, Michael Avenatti and Michael Cohen, we were all able to witness law and justice in our Country at its lowest!


We know. We know, already. And we’re way past any solution that involves the equivalent of a time out chair.

2022/24 will not happen without 2020 made right.

And if I were him I would not have even acknowledged the dropped case. The people who know what’s up never cared, and the other side will reference it forever anyway. It’s kissing up for no reason.



It is the weapon of the Enemy.


Exactly. They don’t want us to think that there’s anything we can do so that we’ll do nothing, thus conceding all control of our lives to them. NEVER.


A real problem with keeping on top of things like we all do here, is managing the frustration.

Brave and Free

Is he letting them know that they have the totals already? Not that that helps any I guess when you have corrupt judge’s who will rule in their favor anyway.

Cuppa Covfefe

From the sound of the soy boy, especially when he mocks her for being pregnant, I would say he’s not likely to be interested in women or fathering at all.

He could well be a transister (self-)named KAREN…..

GOD Bless, strengthen, protect, and guide that woman and her baby, and may she have many more, something else the soyboy and his ilk don’t want.

I have to congratulate her on her restraint, too…. She had every right to read him up one side and down the other, but didn’t.

“…thinking themselves wise, they became fools” comes to mind…

P.S. Interesting in that tomorrow is Mothers’ Day (at least it is here). So HAPPY MOTHERS’ DAY to all mothers, grandmothers, great-grandmothers, great-great-grandmothers, mothers-to-be, and mothers-by-actions (those who “mother” by word or by deed).

GOD BLESS you all!

Jenna Ellis, Peter Navarro launch the Election Integrity Alliance…
Posted by Kane on May 7, 2021 12:57 pm

Newly Formed Alliance Will Evaluate the Integrity of Elections in Key States
The American Greatness Fund announced this week the creation of the Election Integrity Alliance. Jenna Ellis, a lawyer for former President Trump, will serve as Chairwoman of the Board. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and former Trump campaign adviser Peter Navarro will serve as Co-Chairs.

[Excerpt] Read more at the link above…(Videos)


Nothing matters but fixing 2020. Because if that isn’t fixed, and we can once again speak and act from a position of STRENGTH it’s all for naught. They’ll be looking for donations in 3, 2, 1 . . .


It will happen – of that I am certain!!!


It will happen?

Asking for donations OR 2020 will get fixed/corrected? OR, BOTH?

2020 really has to get fixed, OR it’ll happen again in 2022, 2024, 2026…


No way that the “wizards and warlocks” – who’ve planned this out from 20 years ago at least – are “unaware” of the consequences of waiting until 2022.

The idea has been to fix *everything* – that’s the goal, IMO.

“We won’t make it to 2022!”

They know. They’ll act.

It is WE who must prepare for their (our) offensive – and it is WE who must have trust and faith that they’re covering our six.




Cuppa Covfefe

Agreed, except for the wizards and warlocks thing.

It can and will only happen with GOD’S help and direction.
II Chronicles 7:14 says (and many, MANY people noted this back in 2015/2016; why not now):

14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

And Ephesians 6:10-18:
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

This is a battle with abject evil, the likes of which hasn’t been seen on Earth since the Tower of Babel (n.b. the identical twin headquarters buildings of the EU both are modeled on an unfinished Tower of Babel, which the EU wishes to complete – viewed from above, the atria contain the eye of Horus!).

Looking at the YouTubes and work of Ronald Bernard, the Dutch Financier, the highest of the biz and political world have CHILD SACRIFICES at their meetings.

That’s calling down demonry, and they’d call down Satan himself if they could – then again, he’s the one leading them…..


👍 especially that last sentence.
“hasn’t been seen on Earth since the Tower of Babel“ not seen but highly active in all that time.
We’re in a time where the machinations of the cabal are becoming more and more visible with each passing day.
(The Ronald Bernard video is an education in itself.)

Cuppa Covfefe

This might be a surprise, but Revelation 12:9-10 says:

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

Just like the DEMONRATS (Satan’s tools), who accuse and abort innocents, and project their evil, as it the innocent did it instead of them…

The DEMONRATS go clear back to the Serpent in the Garden of Eden; yet they claim to want to make their heaven on earth….. just like Satanists, they invert and pervert everything…..


It must happen or there will be no credible 2022 election, Kal!!! Why vote if it can be fixed?

The truth will be revealed in one way or another and the perpetrators of fraud will pay the price – I believe God is going to move in a mighty way!!! Keep praying…


Gingersmom, I believe $$$ just night be an issue, even w orgs such as this, which is likely to be above board.
The Rs have done a Terrible Job of dinning people for $$$, with no way of figuring out where the $$$ goes…AND with absolutely no ROI. I do not know a single person who would donate one red cent to RNC.

And even the Acc’ts for Trump are, in the fine print, redwin, which few trust.
There has never been one single instance where Trump has stated ALL donations go to HIS Fund. if he stated this, he would be doing himself, as well as us, a Huge Favor.

This effort by Ellis might be an opportunity to make a Statement ab the use of any donated funds.
Given the tardy nature of this announcement, imo, I might be more inclined to support it if they were Adamant ab disclosing their financial structure.
Once or twice burned is enough.


Jenna Ellis always struck me as a lightweight. And just yesterday, McEnany – that everybody worshipped – comes out with a glowing review of Bruce Jenner’s platform/views. Good Lord, just keep your mouth shut instead of jumping at any chance to pander.

I wrote Trump at the 45office site saying I had sent him a good chunk of $$ in 2016 and 2020 but will never donate another dollar to winred.


Gingersmom…good for you!
over at .win (thedonald), there seems to be a competition as to who can return/refuse RNC requests for $$$ in the clearest fashion.
They all have most definitely shot themselves in the foot!!!




Donated hugely to WINRED, Trump & R-Cons in 2019 & 2020. Well, in my world hugely, $1,200.

R-CONS largely abandoned Trump, AND EACH OF US. Still pissed at the R-Con asshoes.

NOT A PENNY MORE till 2020 gets fixed and R-cons bottom blow the turncoats. NOT holding my breath.


kalbo, yeah I did the winred thing, too…until someone raised my suspicions. Pi$$ed me off!!!
I am w you…no more $$$ until there is guarantee my coin is going where intended…and oh yes, Joe Biden didn’t win.


kalbo…agreed…and I too am still pissed…i expect deception from our enemies…but not from our supposed allies!


She disagreed with President Trump on specific issues but always stood by him in the big picture and did not publicly argue with him, much less attack him.

She is a moderate who reflects her district. She is a strong spokesperson who can hold her own against the media, dems and deep state/fed gov employees.

yes, there are many with more conservative voting records but that is not the primary purpose of this position and she is far more support than many of the more conservative representatives. Of those likely to win (not of all of those in Congress) President Trump thinks she is the best candidate.

The issue is seen as one of being a spokesperson and of going forward. Cheney insists on continuing to critisize President Trump which harms the GOP unity and ability to win going forward.

From the linked fox article:

“Stefanik is highly popular in the Republican conference, as she has a history of helping raise money for other incumbents. She notably also helped a number of House freshman Republican women in the 2020 elections.

Stefanik gained notoriety in the past few years as a fierce defender of Trump during the House impeachment hearings in the fall of 2019. She was eventually named the honorary New York chair of Trump’s reelection campaign in early 2020, despite her voting record that didn’t always align with the former president. 

But she’s stood strongly with Trump in recent months, as the president repeated false claims that he won the presidential election and backed a barrage of failed lawsuits challenging the election results.

“Liz Cheney was put on notice when our conference held a vote to remove her in February,” Rep. Lance Gooden, R-Texas, said in a statement. “Her role is to lead House Republican messaging, but she is totally unaligned with the majority of our party. We cannot fight for the America First agenda with her in a leadership position.”

Others, however, said the increase in sentiment against Cheney was less about votes and more about messaging and Cheney’s regular barbs against Trump. 

There’s no concern about how she voted on impeachment, that decision has been made. I have heard from members concerned about her ability to carry out the job as conference chair to carry out the message,” McCarthy said on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday. “We all need to be working as one if we’re able to win the majority. Remember, majorities are not given. They are earned. And that’s about the message about going forward, combating Joe Biden.”

McCarthy continued to say that Republicans should “all work together instead of attacking one another.”

One source told Fox News, “She continues to raise issues with the former president” and added that “if you’re out of sync with Trump,” you’re not in sync with the Republican conference.

The role of conference chair, notably, is considered fundamentally a position with a focus on messaging. 

An aide for a moderate Senate Republican, meanwhile, told Fox News that it is unclear what Cheney’s end game is as she continues to battle with Trump over the election.”


FYI – Not my first, second or third choice either … but she is President Trump’s choice and he must have his reasons …

Some endorsements were mistakes in retrospect. Hope this isn’t one of them.

I think he is endorsing who he likes best of those who an win

Wolf Moon

Stefanik is loyal to the party AND super-MAGA AND a SMART fighter against Dems and the Deep State AND she knows how to fight the media AND she doesn’t get caught in traps. I think she’s a brilliant choice!


Can’t see McCarthy being an effective tool in protecting Cheny any longer giving the recent bunk buddy news (Him and Luntz).

Agrees on Stefanik. The NY’s 21st District includes Ft. Drum, thus the vote against military funds being used for the wall given all the noise that the money would come out of base housing, which was likely bs but try telling that to the people who elected you. Meanwhile how useful can she be as a Cheny replacement if she has to bow to north east regional issues. Then again the position of conference chair is not supposed to be impacted by regional issues as it involves representing the republican party and is reason why people want Cheny gone as she can’t separate her personal politics from the job as chair and is thus causing unneeded fracture.

Wolf Moon

Excellent points! And this explains it – Stefanik is a SHARP PARTY PLAYER, whereas Liz is pissing in the pool despite promises to be nice. A party CANNOT have somebody with that level of lack of control in a key spot.


Cheney is a hormonal old bat most likely in menopause. It doesn’t affect all women that way, but some I have been around turn into raging bitches with no brakes, even when it is in their best interest to pump them.

Wolf Moon

Ah, that would explain a lot!


🚨 🚨 🚨


So why exactly did he fall all over himself to endorse her. Thanks Lou, you have sense. 👍🏻

Wolf Moon

It’s a fair question, BUT it is likely something that Trump gets.

Cheney is in a district where she could be, very safely, a hard-core Trump backer AND SHE’S NOT, whereas Stefanik is in an almost blue district supporting Trump vocally but having to compromise to stay in office (Dems are always trying to get rid of her).

But Lou may have a point. IMO it depends on the exact votes. If she stays with him on the big stuff, good. If not….. hmmmm…..


Trump is a kind man. I believe he had (has) hopes for so many and projected that into believing in people that he should not have. Remember, he let Omarosa in the door and gave her a job, and got burned.

Wolf Moon

True. Trump gives people a lot more chances than he admits to doing. He says he wishes he was more forgiving, but frankly he’s more forgiving than warranted.

The thing for me is, Stefanik snagged Comey and busted Spygate, IMO. I suspect she has helped Trump in other critical ways.


yes 👍🏻


There is always a built in tension between the need to trust people in given situations and the seemingly incessant human drift toward perfidy.
I can’t blame DJT for other’s disloyalties.
One remarkable attribute he has is his ability to quickly change directions, find new people to get the job done even while being stabbed in the back by plants like Kelly, Maddis, McMaster etc. etc.
It’s a wonder that he has accomplished as much as he has when his opposition has been entrenched since…well who knows…

Excellent point! Trump is a master of the broken tool – the beater screwdriver trying to fall apart, blade from handle.


This is strange one. You need to read it all the way down to get it all.

Also according to the tweet she was supposed to return to Switzerland to testify. Not sure that was clear in the GWP story.

Things like this could jeopardize O’l Joe ever getting a chance at a Nobel.

Thank you for posting this link.

This report is a MUST READ. It names names, dates, places, and funding.
Turns out that the Wuhan Institute of Virology (Dr. Zheng-li Shi, the “Bat Lady”) was working on Gain-of-Function viruses that could infect humans back in 2014.
Shi came to the U.S. to work with Ralph Baric at his lab at the Gillings Institute of Public Health at UNC, Chapel Hill, in 2015. Baric and Shi worked on GOF for the SARS-2 virus. Shi then returned to Wuhan WITH HER RESEARCH.
The Wuhan Virology Institute AND the Baric Lab BOTH got funding from Dr. Anthony Fauci’s NIAID and the NIH, specifically for GOF research in viruses.
The Wuhan lab, touted as a BSL-4 level of safety facility, was in reality only practicing BSL-2 safety level protocols — the same levels that your dentist office uses. Therefore, it is completely possible that the Wuhan coronavirus had opportunity to escape the Wuhan lab.

Not sure if this means anything, but the Couch Commando was out in the valley earlier (aka Gumbo Flats along the Missouri River) and saw a C-130 land at Spirit Airport which is one of the commuter airports in this region. I didn’t realize that runway was long enough for one of those.


C-130 does short landings and take offs and can land on a dirt airstrip. Strange thing might be it’s landing on a commuter airport though.

If the bug and/or the super-spreader self vaccinating shots don’t kill us, the anxiety related to both just might.

I was out earlier, and a few minutes ago looked down at my arm and there were these brownish blotches that were there out of the blue. After a moment of panic, and feeling the surface which seemed to be rough, I went to the kitchen sink just to be sure it wasn’t just on the skin, and it was something just on the skin. All that’s there now is a freckle I’ve had for a while.

Sadie Slays

I’ve got relatives who want to visit soon. They were vaccinated and had bad reactions. I genuinely don’t know what to do. I don’t want to shun them, but I’m not really comfortable with this upcoming visit, either.

Deplorable Patriot

Check into a hotel?

Wolf Moon

How long has it been? They should stop shedding in a few weeks max.


If the RNA jab is into muscle and changes DNA to produce spike proteins, wouldn’t it shed spike protein until the modified cell dies? Skeletal muscle cells last 10-15 years (but, on average, will have already lived half their lives before the jab).

Wolf Moon

I don’t know how long the cells would ACTUALLY express the protein, but it would be there in the genome of those cells until and unless it was “silenced”.

The infected cells may be killed by white blood cells. If not, then yes, there could be cells cranking out dangerous spike protein.

Sadie Slays

They were vaccinated back in March, so I hope that’s the case. If I’m being honest, I’m not sure what to believe regarding the whole vaccine shedding topic at all. It’s the uncertainty that makes this hard to deal with.

Wolf Moon

I hear you. The LOGIC says that the cure – as far as genetics – is no worse than the disease, where we KNOW that RNA embeds as DNA and then comes back out as RNA fragments which trigger tests. The Koreans who figured out the fragment shedding probably have the best time data on how long people can shed.

Sadie Slays

Thank you for the links! I really appreciate it!

Wolf Moon

Glad it helped!!!


Today, I got a minor scratch from my cat. I immediately got several big red blotches under the skin. They haven’t gone away. I had something similar happen last week when I was working in the garden.

I definitely have either a covid after-effect, or have been exposed to an injected person.

Damnit. Not sure what I can do other than take care of myself until somebody releases the antidote, or I find a TENS unit.

Cuppa Covfefe

FWIW, it could be cat-scratch disease, as discussed here:

Here’s an excerpt:

Getting scratched by a cat can be more than just painful—the wounds can bleed, sting, swell, become infected, and, in some cases, make us sick. Minor cat scratches usually can be treated at home, but certain wounds may require special care and attention.

Like many animal doctors, Los Angeles-based holistic veterinarian Dr. Patrick Mahaney has dealt with his share of aggressive cats and is well acquainted with the damage they can cause with a swipe of the paw. A cat’s claws are generally sharper than those of a dog and are more likely to cause significant trauma, Mahaney explains. The greater the trauma, the greater the potential for swelling, exposure to the blood supply, and chance of infection, he adds.

According to Dr. Matthew Levy, an associate professor of emergency medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, there are factors to consider immediately following a cat scratch. “Some things to consider include wound location, wound depth, considerations regarding the cat itself, and medical factors about the person who was scratched,” he advises.

Treating Cat Scratches

When treating superficial scratches, it’s reasonable to wash the wound with soap and water, Levy says. “If the wound is bleeding, apply pressure with a clean, dry gauze pad,” he says. “If the bleeding doesn’t stop despite holding pressure, then medical attention should be sought.”

Wounds to the hands and feet can be more prone to infection, Levy warns, and scratches to the face or other areas of the body can cause cosmetic damage in the form of scarring. A scratch to the eye needs immediate care. The risk for infection is higher for people with weakened or compromised immune systems, Levy says.

An over-the-counter antibiotic cream can be applied and the wound covered with a dry, sterile dressing until it heals, Levy says. It’s crucial to keep an eye on the progression of the wound, he adds, and watch out for warning signs that it’s time to call your doctor.

According to Levy, signs of an infected wound include changes around the wound site, increased redness, warmth, swelling, tenderness, pain with movement, or pus drainage. Signs of a generalized body infection include fever, chills, body aches, fatigue, and swollen glands. Swollen glands (lymph nodes) that develop within a week involving an area of the body that was scratched can be an indication of a bacterial infection.

[end excerpt]

Hope this is of some help (and that you get feeling better soon)…


Believe it or not, I have had “cat scratch fever,” and it was about the sickest I have ever been. 104 fever, chills, and a lymph node in my groin swollen the size of a golf ball. Horrible stuff.

This weird “blood rash” came INSTANTLY. No development at all, just boom. Very weird. And it spread a couple of inches from the scratch in an instant, too. Also strange, it wasn’t much of a scratch. And the scratch itself looks fine, no swelling or excess redness, or anything.


Thanks for looking that up for me!

MilSpecOpsMonkey went through some info on surveillance on his sitrep today. REALLY interesting stuff begins right before the 20 minute mark.

Will watch later when it’s quiet here. Have you heard any mention at all of the 2-9000 747, last info I saw is that plane had not been used since 11/30. And still been no AF1 callsign with the 8000?

Deplorable Patriot

If this is correct, the Gates “divorce” is both a distraction and a communications device.


Remember that EO about confiscating money&property from certain types of miscreants? Has that anything to do with the divorce and him trying to get his money safe

Deplorable Patriot

IF it’s really happening, and I’m not so sure it is.

Wolf Moon

I agree – something is up with the Gates “divorce” and it could be anything. I strongly believe that the ChiComs were helping him with rumors of the affair with the translator.


Yeah, I find it hard to believe that any woman would be so hard up to sleep with that evil old fossil, no matter how much money he has.  😎

MAGA GOP working hard and getting ‘er done in OH!

“Shannon Burns, president of Strongsville GOP and a memeber of the state central committee, motioned to amend the resolution to call for the resignation of Gonzalez, as well as his censure. The call for his resignation passed as well, according to
Max Miller, who is looking to primary Gonzalez said, the vote was to “hold Anthony Gonzalez accountable for abandoning his constituents, his promises and the Republican party.”

Wolf Moon

IMO the rumors coming out of Arizona must be extremely solid. People now realize that Trump was screwed by all the named bad guys, and the media LIED AGAIN.


Opinion and Analysis: The GOP must be hemorrhaging donors. These actions in Ohio, Arizona, and some other red states indicate a political class on edge.

Wolf Moon

Good thinking.


We also had county GOP elections for new Chairs and other officers across the nation and state GOP meetings, including electing new state GOP Chairs.

Elections have consequences, including inside the county and state GOP organizations.

In addition to elections, we are seeing a tremendous amount of grassroots activity and increasing membership and meeting attendence.

Yes, some have dropped out, including some leaders … and yet their “stand” is only hurting the MAGA movement within the GOP as fewer MAGA members and fewer MAGA members just leaves more work for the rest of us.

But enough new members that its working out in most county parties. GOPe lost many elections, at least here in TN! And I hope in states/counties elsewhere if MAGA voters turned out and voted.

Meeting in nearby county, a mid size TN county: 14 first time visitors, many recently moved to that county. 3 or 4 from CA and one family from Wisconsin and other states that I don’t remember. They are coming for the freedom and want to make sure TN stays red and free.

Lost two leaders in that county (maybe more I don’t know about – not my county).

One leader discouraged because of our TN Senators 1/6 votes and one who was pretty conservative but ran into trouble because of his anti Trumper protesters stand on 1/6 … kind of opposite.

But first leader no longer in leadership but More active now than before (stepping down from leadership freed them to be VERY active and forming grassroots groups etc.).

Plus many new people coming out to get involved in every county GOP event I have attended since 1/9, just days after 1/6.

So, IDK what motivates all of the State leadership but grassroots efforts and New leadership are key in TN. The TN GOP, writ large, is not the same people as in 2016 when they were unsupportive of President Trump or the same people as even last year. Elections make a difference and so does grassroots activism.

It didn’t even play for me on Telegram! I’ll just have to take your word for it!


I think he pulled it. I tried to watch it again and couldn’t find it. Salty language in abundance, maybe he thought better of it. 😄


I can’t access it, and I’m very curious to know who the person is!


You have to be on telegram to get it. (Sorry) 🙄


I can’t get to the link but I was able to click through that link to this link … but its a full hour …
What is your clip about?


no that’s the Sanders story. It seems no one can get the video. Have to be on telegram, because when you click it tells you the media is too big and has to be viewed in the channel. It’s a drag.

If you are at Pulitzer’s channel, just scroll around to the video that’s just him talking. It’s from earlier today.

Well now it looks like he took it down. I can’t find it either. There was a lot if salty language. 😂


Yeah! Official 2020 stats from Major Cities Chiefs Association. Murders up 25% in Urban Areas. I guess the Dem/BLM/Anifa push and related mayhem to defund the police is working. They should be so proud. Of course if you stop any of these weasels in the street supporting all this nonsense they’ll just deflect and say, “well it got Trump out of office”. At which time you can respond back, ‘ no, even the division you caused wasn’t working so you actually had to steal the election to do that”.


Absolutely pathetic. Add to this the fact that the DA’s and courts are barely charging/enforcing the law and many many of the crimes are by repeat violent thugs released from jail or prison.
Was reading about more horrific attacks on Asians by multi repeat offenders roaming around free to stab or other brutalizing.
Who the gave the green light on this? I find it hard to believe that all of a sudden blacks across the country got it in their heads at the same time. .


BLM and Antifa along with the Dem party are spurring this on but remember there were all those videos from China on how the Chinese were abusing their African Belt and Road African workers that went to China for work. The vids shown the Chinese beating blacks in China, forcing them from homes in the middle of pandemic, and other various harassments and were shown widely on some Black twitter feeds.

All that fed into the usual Asian / Black hysteria and exacerbated feelings and then all of sudden the narrative had to change to protect BLM so it was white guys being accused in the media, but John and Jane public ain’t buying that no more and the dems are clueless on how to shut it off while China is laughing their head off and ruing for the day they can march across America with bayonets fixed.


I’m blanking on those vids .
Agree with you…they’re patiently waiting for that march across the USA


Yes, thinks we may of both read this article, or one like it, likely a duchess drop. Very telling. No American should feel comfortable after reading this.

“Wuhan” is trending on Twitter. Even some of the blue checkmarks are willing to publicly hint that the virus came from the lab there. The Overton Window is shifting.


Finally. It’s been a full year since Gail brought us the full information from Dr Boyle and her own research. All the supposed new information is just confirmation on the old with little bits of new stuff tossed in.


Well, I have to just post a funny. 😄 I wonder if it’s Carpe Donktum cranking out these videos?

This guy brings the heat to Cheney! A pleasure to read

From the link:

“As CNN, the Washington Post, and the rest of America’s finest propaganda outlets lecture Republicans that Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) must stay in GOP House leadership because she is a “truth-teller” (or whatever miserable lie they’re currently peddling), voters know she’s just a useful idiot of the Left. She brings nothing to the table for Republicans except lies (the Russian bounty hoax), ignorance (the 2020 elections were free and fair and January 6 was an “insurrection”), mediocrity (a miserable fundraiser and communicator), all of which are smothered with a heaping serving of neocon warmongering gravy. There is absolutely no constituency for someone like Cheney inside the Republican Party, except maybe at a table also seating Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) and Meghan McCain. 

The propagandists, of course, are doing propping up Cheney for a reason. How better to distract from the far-Left misery of the Biden Administration than to gleefully highlight the No. 3 Republican in the House going on MSNBC and CNN to bash the caucus she’s supposed to be promoting? 

Cheney should never have been reelected to leadership in January, but thanks to the backing of gutless wonder House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), she was reelected. She then proceeded to go on a four-month rampage undercutting her colleagues at every turn.

Cheney’s whiny temper tantrum at the party rejecting her nation building-forever war idiocy is really a microcosm of where the party used to be and where it’s at now: she’s a throwback to the GOP of 2006—so out of step with today’s party she has no business representing one of the strongest Republican districts in the country, much less leading the party.

As this all plays out, with Cheney’s forced departure from leadership perhaps imminent, it’s vital that Republicans not lose sight of what they must do in the immediate future: they must take back at least the House in 2022 to stop the complete and utter madness of the un-American Left, and by that I mean the Democratic Party.

But for Republicans to do that, they must paint a bright and bold picture of the differences between themselves and the Democrats for the voters.

It’s not a good dynamic, to put it mildly. For a change, wouldn’t it be nice to have party leadership that actually reflected the base? There’s a reason Donald Trump and his America First agenda had a 95 percent approval rating with the Republican Party. The ideas of prioritizing the American people on trade, immigration, jobs, and other issues are really just common sense—something in short supply among Republican establishment types. 

But here’s another problem if we’re being perfectly honest: One of the reasons that we don’t see more America First leadership in the party is that most congressional members are more afraid of their party leadership than they are of their own voters. Why? Because the party leadership controls their committee assignments, their fundraising prospects, and their chances for reelection. It really is a calculation based on fear and self-preservation: the overwhelming majority of elected officials are experts in self-preservation and respond to what they fear the most. 

We need congressional members who are more afraid of their constituents than they are of leadership. I mean, we are the ones who elected them to serve, not the party. So if you’re tired of the party abusing you, you need to make a conscious decision that you’re going to do something about it, and with enough people, change can happen. A party is what people say it is, so let’s become the dominant force in the party. Push the pendulum in the direction of America First policies. Engage in primaries. Show up at party conventions. Run for precinct chair.

In the 2022 primaries, find the champions of America First and support them.
Imagine if we do the right work, create the right machine, and can finally exorcise warmongering tools like Liz Cheney from the party? It would be a great day for the Republican Party, but even more, it would be a great day for the country.”


I have shopped very little in Davidson and Williamson county since wuflu started and have stayed out of the larger counties. Stayed in counties with no mask mandates for the majority of my errands and activities. last week went to a target in Williamson. SO weird to be surrounded by people in masks … even in the parking lot!

I really can’t imagine what those in mask mandate and fully shutdown/stay in your homes states have experienced. Can’t not imagine that kind of loss of freedom.


Some MAGA voters have such built up expectations that President Trump can’t possibly live up to the results some are expecting. If we remember he is 1 human man, expectional but not with actual super human powers, he is impressive and has accomplished so much for our country. Some have built him up so much that when he doesn’t live up to the fantacy people are actually disappointed in this great man. I don’t agree with everything he does or says but he has Already done too much good to ever leave me disappointed.

From the link:

“It’s amazing the expectations people put on Trump. As president, that made some sense. As a private citizen, there’s really only so much you ought to expect the man to do, and he’s doing a lot. Trump is raising a pile of cash, he’s recruiting fearless, passionate conservatives for the 2022 midterm elections, and he’s doing battle with a frightening, holistic left-wing political and corporate regime bent on driving him out of the American cultural mainstream. No ex-president who has zero to prove and is well past retirement age would be expected to do more. Give the guy a break.

The real concern is that nobody else is picking up the slack. Well, that’s your responsibility. Get involved. Find a way you can contribute. You don’t have to score touchdowns. First downs add up, so find a way you can get one. Be a leader in your own right, and look for that first-down line with all the decisions you can make.”


From the same link, interesting take on Cheney:

“But everything Liz Cheney is in trouble for, Liz Cheney did to herself.

The thing to remember is Liz Cheney survived her vote to impeach Donald Trump. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who has his own problems and really doesn’t need to take on Liz Cheney’s as well, took her side and kept her around after the first wave of acrimony surrounding Cheney’s Never Trumper outbursts.

It’s when she refused to shut up about Trump that she made herself untenable.
As Mollie Hemingway noted on Twitter, it isn’t the hardcore Trumpers in the House who are getting rid of Liz Cheney. It’s the Republicans who are trying to move past Trump who want her gone. Liz Cheney continuing to run her mouth about how Trump is pushing some sort of Nazi Big Lie surrounding the 2020 election makes that impossible, and the conference chair is supposed to be the one who makes everybody get along.

Cheney’s defenders seem to forget that she stinks at that job.

The conference chair is supposed to raise money. Who wants to give Liz Cheney money? She’s a walking political corpse back home in Wyoming, for crying out loud — it’s almost a sure thing she’ll lose reelection if she even runs.

The Washington establishment loves Republican losers, which is why Liz Cheney is a star to them now. That they don’t love Trump is an indication they might actually think his Big Lie about the 2020 election isn’t so big after all. But they’ll never admit that.”

I don’t fully agree with this take. She is a dead man walking in WY *because* of her impeachment votes. She survived that vote in DC but that is WY she is now unelectable in WY and why she is poison to the voting base, the vast majority of which are MAGA.


Yet another take on Cheney

From a different article than that quoted above:

“She acts a fifth columnist within the Republican Party for a non sequitur, nonstarter return to the Team America, World Police version of the GOP that prevailed in the immediate aftermath of 9/11. Though close in terms of calendar, the anachronistic Bush–Cheney Republicanism, which left the party in tatters after the needless shedding of blood and treasure in pursuit of the fool’s errand of transforming the Muhammadan inhabitants of Mesopotamia into Vermont-style town meeting members, enjoying a resurgence seems about as likely as the Fighting Bob La Follette Progressive Wing or Roscoe Conkling’s Stalwarts mounting a serious challenge for control of the party.

And this affinity for both the “lost cause” and the “wrong cause” ironically unites Trump’s destructive case of sore loseritis that handed Democrats control of the Senate and Cheney’s attempt to revitalize the muscular Wilsonianism that nearly strangled the Republican Party to death in its fealty to it during John McCain and Mitt Romney’s presidential runs (before Trump returned the party to its people by untethering it from the trade, immigration, and foreign policies of the party’s recent past and reconnecting it to the principles of the party’s distant past).

Cheney seems intelligent enough to realize a return to the salad days of Team America, World Police requires the invention of a time machine — or at least that such an unlikely de-evolution takes more than a few election cycles. So what does she really chase? Her refusal to rule out a presidential run to the New York Post last week hints at the answer. She wants to play spoiler to prevent anyone who embraces a Trumpian foreign policy of restraint from again winning the presidency. Given her family name, conservative credentials (she boasts a solid voting record in the House), and this orchestrated martyrdom, she figures to pose a more challenging roadblock to overcome than, say, Evan McMullin did. Whether Cheney–Romney or Romney–Cheney or whatever displaced dauphins or dauphinesses of dynastic politics runs, the nation-builders now seek to meddle not in Iraq or Syria or Libya but in the internal workings of the Republican Party, an entity at least as foreign to them by this point as Afghanistan.”


She should have gotten booted during voir dire.
