The one at my house actually flew over the US Embassy in Bagdad back during the Gulf War. One of the benefits of having a brother in the Marines at the time.

All I heard from the Democrats’ prime-time telecast of their J6 Soviet show trial was blah, blah, blah, Americans are racist, Trump’s a terrorist, and Congress must tear up more of the Constitution to save “democracy.” Lights, camera, distraction! The way-off-Broadway tragicomedy produced by State media at once radiated the cheap emotionalism of a soap opera while leaving the ludicrous impression that our exalted leaders are nothing but ventriloquist dummies seeking refuge from a bad vaudeville routine. It was difficult not to laugh at the parade of dour faces glaring intently into the cameras with their punishing nursemaid scowls imploring the audience to take them seriously. Even watched on a phone screen, the staged spectacle reeked of sweat, desperation, and community theater amateurishness.
Like a third-rate Vegas show performed by mediocre magicians, there was no surprise or suspense. Listening to the players read from their corny scripts, I thought they would have been better off just breaking into incantations or hypnotic chants: abracadabra, pay no attention to obscene gas prices or the imploding economy…forget about Hillary’s Russia collusion hoax…never mind that more evidence of a fraudulent 2020 election emerges daily…it is imperative that we take away more of your rights! Free speech is deadly, America. Stop following the man with the red hat. It is Congress that loves you. It is we who will keep you safe. Love us. Worship us. We promise to be good masters.
Just what could compel D.C.’s reptilian ruling class to go to such lengths in its attempt to scramble Americans’ brains with such overt propaganda? Well, this is obviously the only issue Democrats and their masochistic enablers have in terms of a midterm election strategy (aside from another round of late-night mail-in ballot dumps and a compliant judicial system eager to rubber-stamp ballots as “valid” deemed “invalid” by state law). I kept thinking over the last eighteen months that the geniuses running America into the ground would come up with a second or third pitch in their 2022 election repertoire, but that was foolish; this is it; the Democrats are still running on nothing but Orange Man Bad.
Oh, and things heated up at the Supreme Court even if the decision hasn’t been handed down yet.
Note which side is masked.
So, BioClandestine connected some dots:
HOLY SHITTTT!!! WHY IS THIS NOT BIGGER NEWS?!
This is from CBS on Saturday, Nicaragua gives Russia permission for Russian troops to enter the country?!?
For those who don’t know geography, Nicaragua is in Central America, 1600 miles from the Texas border.
Nicaraguan President, Daniel Ortega, signed a decree on 06/08/22, allowing Russian troops to carry out law enforcement duties, “humanitarian aid, rescue and search missions in emergencies or natural disasters.”
Russian spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, made the following statement on the activities in Nicaragua:
“We are talking about a routine — twice a year — procedure for the adoption of a Nicaraguan law on the temporary admission of foreign military personnel to its territory in order to develop cooperation in various areas, including humanitarian and emergency responses, combatting organized crime and drug trafficking,”.
So the Russian Military are moving into North America, looking for organized crime? My first reaction was… “DO WE HAVE BIOLABS IN NICARAGUA?!”.
Lo and behold, we do. And it’s worse than I imagined.
So I started digging on US bio activity in Nicaragua.
As it turns out, not only do we have a BSL-3 Veterinary biolab in Nicaragua, the Biden STATE DEPT added the Nicaraguan government officials to the “Corrupt and Undemocratic List” on 03/09/22, barring them from entering the country.
Keep in mind that’s the same day the State Dept put out their disinformation statement claiming there are no biolabs in Ukraine, right after Victoria Nuland from the State Dept just admitted there were Biolabs in Ukraine, the day before in congressional testimony.
They really are trying to kill us.
New hashtag from American Thinker:
No one should be surprised that these fools are now openly telling us that they are “grooming” the next generation into the evil LGBTMYNAMEISLEGION agenda. We’ve been on this path for years. What was long seen as immoral — and even laughed at by numerous Hollywood leftists — and more recently something that needed to be treated and cured, is now promoted and celebrated.
The Democrat Party seems to be fully on-board with every new perversion the LGBTMYNAMEISLEGION apologists can dream up. In addition to anything they can accomplish legislatively in support of this evil agenda, one of the leading Democrats in America, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, will make a promotional reappearance on RuPaul Andre Charles’ TV show, RuPaul’s Drag Race.
In describing drag, RuPaul has correctly noted that it is a “very, very political” act because it “challenges the status quo.” He further adds, “Drag says ‘I’m a shapeshifter, I do whatever the hell I want at any given time.’” Of course, “I do whatever the hell I want at any given time” is an admission that one fully embraces the godless Pagan philosophy of “Do as Thou Wilt.” This godlessness is the foundational principle of the modern left.
And please, if you are going to try and dress like a woman, men, consult one of us for fashion tips. Rainbow hair and clown make-up will not allow you to blend in.
According to a statement from the bipartisan group of senators, they have an agreement in principle for legislation that includes “needed mental health resources, improves school safety and support for students, and helps ensure dangerous criminals and those who are adjudicated as mentally ill can’t purchase weapons….” More specifically, the senators have agreed on the following concepts, which I’ve listed along with my comments:
Funding for school safety resources. If this means armed safety officers and hardened infrastructure, that’s good. Cynically, I don’t think it will mean that.
Extending background checks to juvenile criminal justice records and mental health records for buyers under 21. This is a good idea and might actually stop some of the crazier 18-, 19-, and 20-year-olds from beating background checks because their juvenile records are under seal.
Expanding mental health and support services in schools. Schools have become lunatic asylums that encourage race hatred and push students to deny biological reality. It used to be that liberal colleges took in bright, normal kids and, after four (or five or six) years of marinating these kids in leftist gender and race theories, graduated basket cases. Now, those same theories are part of elementary school curricula, so I don’t see schools as bastions standing ready to help students’ mental health.
Penalties for straw purchases. Meh. The likelihood of this effectively ending gun crimes is limited at best. Other laws already cover this practice in one way or another and they’ve been ineffectual.
Federal government funds for state and tribe red flag laws. Red flag laws, which deprive people of a constitutional right without due process, are unconstitutional. That’s it. They are. And it’s no use saying “but they might save lives” because they also might cost lives. Imagine a vindictive woman calling in a red flag on her legally armed boyfriend and, once he’s disarmed, killing him.
Blunt’s actually not running again, but the rest of them…yeah.
Meanwhile, the media magnify fears over the mystery of Long COVID. One third of all infected will suffer chronic and debilitating symptoms! Niggling details didn’t make it to press, though, such as how most subjects were the vulnerable elderly and hospitalized for severe acute infection. One in five may develop Long COVID, says the CDC, and vaccination will protect you! Yet the article buried how vaccination can also increase risk of Long COVID and lead to worse outcomes than hospitalization for influenza. Marvel in horror as people lose ten I.Q. points to Long COVID! Never you mind all subjects were severe and critical cases. Long COVID can even lead to death! Actual underlying causes may have nothing to do with Long COVID, but let that not stand in the way of sensational headlines magnetizing clicks.
Nevertheless, actual SARS-CoV-2 infections can lead to actual chronic conditions, but nailing down the prevalence is elusive. Government analysts with the U.K. Office for National Statistics grappling with this issue found that overall, 11.5 percent on average suffer longer-term symptoms out to 5 weeks that falls to around 3 percent at 12 weeks improving afterward. Women and elderly are more vulnerable, including those with the well known comorbidity obesity, itself a “pandemic” estimated to kill 2.8 million per year. Imagine the lives saved if government policies focused on nutrition, exercise, and general health instead of, well, other things.
But what exactly is Long COVID? The U.K. report struggled with three different definitions and three different analyses for the condition. Typical symptoms include difficulty breathing, cognitive decline or “brain fog,” chronic fatigue, malaise, headaches, and runny nose. Yet these things plagued humanity long before the now-vindicated pangolas of Wuhan wet markets unleashed their “never could happen” gain-of-function–in-a-laboratory viral strain on a world bristling with triggers for these symptoms including, of all things, isolation.
Curiously, social stressors such as isolation are linked with inflammation, particularly in the brain, or “neuroinflammation.” Brain physiology is altered by inflammatory mechanisms and implicated in fibromyalgia and Gulf War Illness. Research into this issue predates the pandemic, showing rising risk for mental illness, fatigue, depression, withdrawal, and mood disorders — symptoms that strikingly overlap Long COVID descriptions by the CDC.
I have a cousin who identifies as an unwilling vegetarian and blames her inability to tolerate meat on COVID. It may have been a tick bite, but still.
Not sure that I agree with Revolver on this one, but prior to being occupants of the Oval Office there really is no comparison:
The Biden-Carter comparison is a natural one, and not just because Biden shares Carter’s gruesome approval ratings. Both had to cope with similar problems: Inflation, an energy shock, Russian assertiveness, and the implosion of an American Middle East ally. Both inspired widespread feeling that the American superpower was over-the-hill and soon to be surpassed by foreign rivals.
And then, there’s the personal dimension: Joe Biden was the first U.S. senator to endorse Carter for president all the way back in 1975, when Carter was a longshot dark horse candidate for the Democratic nomination.
Unfortunately for Joe Biden and the American people, however, Joe Biden isn’t half the man Jimmy Carter was….
The piece goes on to tell of Carter and the near nuclear meltdown versus Biden plagerizing and finishing at the bottom of his class at Syracuse Law.
Please, see Mark Twain. Yes, he’s actually a well-known American author.
Tear jerk alert.
This is me on float trips.
Something to remember, always.
Per the boss’s instruction:
I’d throw in a few Rockefellers and Rothschilds also.
Of course, this does not mean committing felonies, but standing up to the forces that want to tear this nation – and humanity apart. The very people XVII told us will be destroyed by the time this movie comes to an end are currently roaming the halls of power…supposedly. It’s a sickening sight.
Your weekly reminder to take the pledge:
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”

1 KINGS 21:17-29
17Then the word of the LORD came to Eli’jah the Tishbite, saying, 18“Arise, go down to meet Ahab king of Israel, who is in Sama’ria; behold, he is in the vineyard of Naboth, where he has gone to take possession. 19And you shall say to him, `Thus says the LORD, “Have you killed, and also taken possession?”‘ And you shall say to him, `Thus says the LORD: “In the place where dogs licked up the blood of Naboth shall dogs lick your own blood.”‘” 20Ahab said to Eli’jah, “Have you found me, O my enemy?” He answered, “I have found you, because you have sold yourself to do what is evil in the sight of the LORD. 21Behold, I will bring evil upon you; I will utterly sweep you away, and will cut off from Ahab every male, bond or free, in Israel; 22and I will make your house like the house of Jerobo’am the son of Nebat, and like the house of Ba’asha the son of Ahi’jah, for the anger to which you have provoked me, and because you have made Israel to sin. 23And of Jez’ebel the LORD also said, `The dogs shall eat Jez’ebel within the bounds of Jezreel.’ 24Any one belonging to Ahab who dies in the city the dogs shall eat; and any one of his who dies in the open country the birds of the air shall eat.” 25(There was none who sold himself to do what was evil in the sight of the LORD like Ahab, whom Jez’ebel his wife incited. 26He did very abominably in going after idols, as the Amorites had done, whom the LORD cast out before the people of Israel.) 27And when Ahab heard those words, he rent his clothes, and put sackcloth upon his flesh, and fasted and lay in sackcloth, and went about dejectedly. 28And the word of the LORD came to Eli’jah the Tishbite, saying, 29“Have you seen how Ahab has humbled himself before me? Because he has humbled himself before me, I will not bring the evil in his days; but in his son’s days I will bring the evil upon his house.”
PSALMS 51:3-6, 11, 16
1Have mercy on me, O God, according to thy steadfast love; according to thy abundant mercy blot out my transgressions. 2Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin! 3For I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me. 4Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done that which is evil in thy sight, so that thou art justified in thy sentence and blameless in thy judgment. 9Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities. 14Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation, and my tongue will sing aloud of thy deliverance.
43“You have heard that it was said, `You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47And if you salute only your brethren, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? 48You, therefore, must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Hosts, by the power of God, cast down to Hell Satan and all his evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
As always, prayers for the fight against that which seeks to enslave us are welcome. Via con Dios.
Is it getting hot in here?
And then, of course, there’s JP.
