RINOs an Endangered Species?
According to Wikipoo, et. al., the Northern White Rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum cottoni) is a critically endangered species. Apparently two females live on a wildlife preserve in Sudan, and no males are known to be alive. So basically, this species is dead as soon as the females die of old age. Presently they are watched over by armed guards 24/7.
Biologists have been trying to cross them with the other subspecies, Southern White Rhinoceroses (Rhinoceri?) without success; and some genetic analyses suggest that perhaps they aren’t two subspecies at all, but two distinct species, which would make the whole project a lot more difficult.
I should hope if the American RINO (Parasitus rectum pseudoconservativum) is ever this endangered, there will be heroic efforts not to save the species, but rather to push the remainder off a cliff. Onto punji sticks. With feces smeared on them. Failing that a good bath in red fuming nitric acid will do.
But I’m not done ranting about RINOs.
The RINOs (if they are capable of any introspection whatsoever) probably wonder why they constantly have to deal with “populist” eruptions like the Trump-led MAGA movement. That would be because the so-called populists stand for absolutely nothing except for going along to get along. That allows the Left to drive the culture and politics.
Given the results of our most recent elections, the Left will now push harder, and the RINOs will now turn even squishier than they were before.
I well remember 1989-1990 in my state when the RINO establishment started preaching the message that a conservative simply couldn’t win in Colorado. Never mind the fact that Reagan had won the state TWICE (in 1984 bringing in a veto-proof state house and senate with him) and GHWB had won after (falsely!) assuring everyone that a vote for him was a vote for Reagan’s third term.
This is how the RINOs function. They push, push, push the line that only a “moderate” can get elected. Stomp them when they pull that shit. Tell everyone in ear shot that that’s exactly what the Left wants you to think, and oh-by-the-way-Mister-RINO if you’re in this party selling the same message as the Left…well, whythefuckexactly are you in this party, you lying piece of rancid weasel shit?
It says “Justice” on the picture.
And I’m sure someone will post the standard joke about what the fish thinks about the situation.
But what is it?
Here’s a take, from a different context: It’s about how you do justice, not the justice that must be done to our massively corrupt government and media. You must properly identify the nature of a person, before you can do him justice.
Ayn Rand, On Justice (speaking through her character John Galt, in Atlas Shrugged):
Justice is the recognition of the fact that you cannot fake the character of men as you cannot fake the character of nature, that you must judge all men as conscientiously as you judge inanimate objects, with the same respect for truth, with the same incorruptible vision, by as pure and as rational a process of identification—that every man must be judged for what he is and treated accordingly, that just as you do not pay a higher price for a rusty chunk of scrap than for a piece of shining metal, so you do not value a rotter above a hero—that your moral appraisal is the coin paying men for their virtues or vices, and this payment demands of you as scrupulous an honor as you bring to financial transactions—that to withhold your contempt from men’s vices is an act of moral counterfeiting, and to withhold your admiration from their virtues is an act of moral embezzlement—that to place any other concern higher than justice is to devaluate your moral currency and defraud the good in favor of the evil, since only the good can lose by a default of justice and only the evil can profit—and that the bottom of the pit at the end of that road, the act of moral bankruptcy, is to punish men for their virtues and reward them for their vices, that that is the collapse to full depravity, the Black Mass of the worship of death, the dedication of your consciousness to the destruction of existence.
Ayn Rand identified seven virtues, chief among them rationality. The other six, including justice, she considered subsidiary because they are essentially different aspects and applications of rationality.

Justice Must Be Done.
Trump, it is supposed, had some documents.
Biden and company stole the country.
I’m sure enough of this that I put my money where my mouth is.
The prior election must be acknowledged as fraudulent, and steps must be taken to prosecute the fraudsters and restore integrity to the system. (This doesn’t necessarily include deposing Joe and Hoe and putting Trump where he belongs, but it would certainly be a lot easier to fix our broken electoral system with the right people in charge.)
Nothing else matters at this point. Talking about trying again in 2022 or 2024 is pointless otherwise. Which is not to say one must never talk about this, but rather that one must account for this in ones planning; if fixing the fraud in the system is not part of the plan, you have no plan.
This will necessarily be piecemeal, state by state, which is why I am encouraged by those states working to change their laws to alleviate the fraud both via computer and via bogus voters. If enough states do that we might end up with a working majority in Congress and that would be something Trump never really had.

The Eagle in The Nebula
A number of people seemed to have trouble seeing the eagle in M-16 the Eagle Nebula.
(M-16 stands for Messier 16; Charles Messier was an astronomer in the 1700s who was interested in comets. He made a list of about 100 objects in the sky that were not comets because he kept hitting them over and over. M-16 is one of that list. It’s also redundantly listed as NGC 6611 (there are exactly 7000 objects in the New General Catalog…which isn’t all that new anymore having been compiled in 1888). NGC objects were typically nebulae, only about 40 years later did they realize that many of the nebulae were actually galaxies.
Anyhow, here’s a picture of the Eagle Nebula similar to what you’d see in a really BIG earthbound telescope, without any false colors. (You’d probably, even so, need a long camera exposure.)
What you can see, even in a dinky little six inch (diameter!) telescope is the central structure (and absolutely no color at all). Most of the orange area is basically black, the blue area looks white. (I know this, because that’s what I see in my dinky little six inch telescope.) You can see the three “pillars of creation” there, but note that the one on the left, the tallest, is less visible than the other two. So what you see is a zig-zag and that bit off to the right that looks like a T on its side.
OK, so I said something like “turn it 90 degrees clockwise to see the eagle” and that still didn’t work for some people so I did five minutes of really crappy drawing with a mouse to produce:
Which I hope makes it clearer. It’s not a perfectly well proportioned eagle like the actual eagles at the top of the Saturday posts, but it’s there nonetheless. (There’s no freaking way the talons should be in front of the wings, just for instance; wings are the forelimbs, the legs are the rear limbs.)
It’s one of those things that once seen, cannot be unseen.

China is in the White House
Since Wednesday, January 20 at Noon EST, the bought-and-paid for Joseph Biden has been in the White House. It’s as good as having China in the Oval Office.
Joe Biden is Asshoe
China is in the White House, because Joe Biden is in the White House, and Joe Biden is identically equal to China. China is Asshoe. Therefore, Joe Biden is Asshoe.
But of course the much more important thing to realize:
Joe Biden Didn’t Win

Nice drawing. It is actually quite helpful.
Sorta reminds me, sylistically, of Johnny Hart’s “B.C.” comic strip.
Yes, I can see it now.
This is weird, but in the top photo, the one not turned 90 degrees, when I enlarge it (not by fancy means, just expanding the view on my computer), the “eagle” looks like some kind of bird/lizard creature standing up and holding something in its talons. The portion beneath it looks like the head of a rino, and behind it is a camel’s neck and head.
Now I’m probably fired from ever commenting on space pics again, LOL!
RINO and Kamel-hoe…. that’s a start 🙂
well prepped for Rorschach though! 😂
C’mon over into today and give us a report on your son’s Canadian adventure!
When I actually hear from him. He’s not expected back until pretty late on Sunday…& he doesn’t live here any more so I don’t see him much…occasionally get tidbits from Hubby’s texting adventures, but you know how much men like to share details with their women–Ha!
His O’Satan-ness was in town shilling for Gretchen Witchmer Saturday–spit!
The sippycup got a holder. Nice.
That was Catturd’s reply to Keith Olbermann saying this:
^^^ Hilarious. ^^^
I think it’s terrible to joke about someone who was attacked and hospitalized…but it was too good to resist.
Until we get a narrative that makes sense, light ridicule is entirely appropriate. This isn’t a situation like Rand Paul where his neighbor charged him while mowing his lawn, blindsided him, and left him needing surgery. This is a case where he was wrestling a guy clad in underwear for a hammer at 2:30 AM in San Francisco, AKA Perv Central.
A number of people on patriots. win are speculating that there was some kind of relationship between Paul Pelosi and the perp. The story is so bizarre that it could go in several directions. If the perp is a total nut job, which seems likely, it could just be a totally improbable, but real, occurrence. A (former?) nudist could very well be going around in underwear. He could also have been high on something. That would account for some of the weird behavior, like allowing Paul to use the bathroom, from which he called police.
I don’t know how much of the reporting has been accurate. They say it was a welfare check. Then who asked them to do that? I think the police just came when Paul called them.
I doubt we’ll ever know the whole truth. And I don’t see how this helps Dems in any way before the election.
Could have been Nanzi. Maybe she was watching a security video feed on her cell phone and saw a problem.
Keep in mind that it might not have been Paul drunk driving that night. Could have been her but she couldn’t afford politically to be nailed as a drunk driver. So he took the fall for her.
Could be..I can see nanzi learning lessons from HRC and giving old Paulie the Seth Rich sidewalk temperature treatment. She has a lot to gain with him out of the picture. No doubt in my mind they both have ugly secrets on each other, It’s how mobsters roll.
Personal preservation comes first, even in a marriage of convenience there are limits.
They can’t help themselves.
And she’s a-singin’
“If I had a hammer,
I’d hammer in the mor-or-nin’
I’d hammer in the evenin’
All over your head”…..
“I’d hammer ’bout Whiskey,
I’d hammer ’bout sub- zero,
I’d hammer ’bout Jan’war six,
Livin’ out here in the sticks,
I’d hammer ’bout votes we “found”,
Never nuff to go around
All over this la-a-and,
Woo ooh ooh ooh”…
(staggers over to get a refill on her Vodka float)…
Well they are certainly trying to make it work for them. Biden was in Philadelphia today and pretty much as predicted and he sympathy card and angrily blamed the attack on on J6rs.
Biden Blames Republicans for Attack on Paul Pelosi (Video)
Commentators are saying expect a big false flag attack coming up fast. Makes sense, the better to confuse the public.
Almost every commenter has reached the same conclusion I did; this was a tryst gone wrong.
Yup. You were definitely leading on that.
It’s how Demoncrats roll. Blame it on the other guy.
Accuse Them of what You are actually doing…
Ultimately no trial for freak from Berkeley. Everything was consensual, until it wasn’t.
But politicians, Piglosi specifically will hide this shit, “as if it never happened”.
Wait, didn’t Yours Truly see something about this “hammer guy in underwear” being married?
So the situation is about two married men having a tryst?
Paul and Nanzi and Fred and Alice??? 😮
And, softly in the background, a tranZelensky imitator from the TwinPeaks area is imitating (poorly) Chubby Checker singing “trysting the night away”…..
The J6 angle is too crazy to be taken seriously, IMO. Of couse, there are crazy people out there…
“I doubt we’ll ever know the whole tlruth. And I don’t see how this helps Dems in any way before the election.”
Helps to solidify the freak vote just days before the election.
They had been slipping away… but after this episode, they’re all coming back 👍 😁
It seems Biden wants them back, seething for real blood.
It was either the DOJ or more likely FIB that put out the warning that they were expecting violence at the polling places. Of course that seemed to be aimed at MAGA as the instigators. No doubt that Biden is trying to change that, but they will attempt to keep the blame casting focus on MAGA.
Liberals are whining, law suits over drop box watchers in AZ.
So far courts are allowing Freedom.
Have read some drop box watchers wear masks and are armed. AZ is an Open Carry State. Masks, NBFD with all the Covidiocy pushing masks. of course the masks are stoopid on steroids.
3, 2, 1…
Soon, FF in AZ, blamed on drop box watchers.
You mean these guys??? 😀
Close, except dressed like women, or wearing rainbow colored ass-less leather chaps 👍😂
One of hubby’s former bandmates, a drummer, played in another band with a similarly clad “ass-less leather chaps” person playing guitar in front of him…swamp butt on stage…at eye level for hours! Massive gag!!! 😉 🎼 🙄
Just look up images for “Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers” and/or Shel Silverstein and you’ll find plenty of both 😀
(NSFW territory so I didn’t post any of them)…
In college we LOVED these comics, and the others which sprung up those days. They were vulgar, lewd, and hilarious. Not even close to possible to publish that sort of thing nowadays.
Didn’t realize it didn’t have a header… those are the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers by Shel Silverstein and another fellow (who I can’t remember at the moment)…
I once had the entire collection, believe it or not.
Guessing. David, (bad guy). Invited in Piglosi home. Was clothed on arrival.
Vintage Frisco, Berkeley, Bay Area trashy behavior.
A stereotype, that fits.
LOTS of people are thinking that. It looks very bad.
“LOTS of people are thinking that. It looks very bad.”
Which, counterintuitively, for Sodom by the Sea voters, actually looks very good 👍
“This is a case where he was wrestling a guy clad in underwear for a hammer at 2:30 AM in San Francisco”
It’s really not that strange.
I mean, who among us can say that’s never happened to them?
In my case, we were fighting over the last Klondike Bar….
What would you do?
“What would you do?”
Not much… and definitely not that 😁 😂
Oh hell NOOOOOO!!!!
Is that a Klondike bar in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
… yuk … chocolate “stuff” …. 🤢😑🤢
And, rather than yelling EUREKA! (Eureka what?), he yells thate other legendary SF Treat, “IT’S IT! “….
(two oatmeal raisin cookies with a [round] slab of vanilla ice-cream in between, coated in chocolate… OK, it’s too good for those creepy critters…)….
Nothing terrible joking or laughing at the latestest Piglosi family ignorance.
Now I’m reading, Paul “Hammered” Piglosi KNEW the hammerer freak. David.
Guessing, this is a case of disgusting kinky sex went bad.
All the things they’re trying to “normalize”…. Pretty soon it’ll be
LGBTQIA+H (as in Hammered)….
*sigh* again, a typo.
In fairness, at the time, the originator was, hammerred.
Yeah, you’re probably right! 😀
Just like Hitlary’s phones.

Back to square 1.
But we have excellent precedent …
Investigate Biden. His demonic speech and his calling out J6rs for blanketing blame upon Republicans for the alleged odd ball attack on Paul tops a long list Dem tricks. Dis/Misinfo is writ large across that.

PRAYING ON THE ARMOR OF GOD
Father God, I now follow your command to put on the full armor of God, because my battle is not against flesh and blood but against rulers, authorities, the powers of this dark world and against spiritual forces of evil in the unseen world.
I first pray on the Belt of Truth that it may be buckled around my waist, may I be centered and encircled by your truth dear Lord. Hem me inside all that is true and right, and may I be protected and held up by the truth of your living word, in my Lord Jesus name.
I pray on the Breastplate of righteousness, please protect my vital organs and my inner man, cover my integrity, my spirit, and my soul. Guard my heart for it is the wellspring of life, please strengthen and guard the most vulnerable places in my life with that which is right, good, and noble that I might not receive a fatal blow from the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.
I pray on the Gospel Shoes of Peace. I choose to stand in the shoes of your good news, and on the firm foundation of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the solid eternal rock. All other ground is sinking sand, I pray that I will not slip or fall, but that my feet would be firmly fitted on your lordship, my Lord Jesus. I choose to stand on you, so that the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus, the eternal Rock of Ages. I receive your holy peace now my Lord, from the sole of my feet to the crown of my head, in my Lord Jesus name.
I pray the Shield of Faith into my hand now. As I take up the shield of faith, I ask that you might extinguish every dart and arrow, that is launched from the enemy to take me down spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, and every attempt of the enemy to destroy my joy. I ask that my faith in you would make it flame out. Extinguish every flaming arrow that would come against me, my life, my family, my home, or my ministry. May my faith always be out in front of me like a shield. Give me the courage to “faith my fears” by choosing to walk by faith and not by sight, in my Lord Jesus name.
I pray on the Helmet of Salvation, that you might protect my mind from the thoughts that can lead me astray. I choose to take every thought captive, and arrest all intentioned ideas and motives that would harm others, or distract me from your holy will for me. I submit every captured thought to the Lordship of my Lord Jesus Christ, and ask that you would imprison those thoughts that are not of you my Lord. Transform my mind and renew my thinking that I may think God thoughts, and have a sober mind that is focused on your glory. Please protect me from being double minded that I may allow my mind, I reject to live an earthly life, because I choose to live a holy one, governed by you My Lord Jesus, the prince of peace, please have my mind to be saturated with the holy mind of Christ, in my Lord Jesus name.
Finally, I take up the Sword of the Spirit which is the holy word of God, I pray this powerful offensive weapon into my hand, and ask that your holy word would be fitting for every encounter I face. As the enemy gets close to me, please give me the insight, wisdom, and skill to wield the word of God to drive away the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.
May the enemy and his team flee from me, upon hearing the word of God spoken by the power and direction of the Holy Spirit. Give me the sword of the spirit to cut through the wiles of the devil, so that I may discern the schemes of the enemy when he is near.
With all kinds of prayers, supplication, and intercession I pray to you my Lord God as the one who fights my battles. Now that I’m in your holy powerful armor, I walk away covered and ready to face my day as you go before me, and please protect me in the midst of the spiritual warfare in this unseen world, in my Lord Jesus name.
Thank you my Lord, for the spiritual weapons of armor and prayer that you have given me. It is written no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and you will refute every tongue that accuses me.
Thank you Father God, my Lord Jesus and the Holy Spirit, that I am more than a conqueror in my Lord Jesus. I pray all of this in the mighty name of my Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ.
PLEASE PRAY FOR ONE ANOTHER
Probably somewhere around here 🙂

Wait a moment…the bread is absolutely optional, as well.
Cracking up, while listening…SPOT ON MESSAGING.
Thank You Kal!
I am flummoxed that so many here do not see what a brave and wonderful thing Musk has done in buying Twitter, not to mention the money involved 😉 Not to mention that he and his family are in danger.
Yup, so far, all great news, TW wise.
I think most see the great changes in Twitter and recognize the money Elon has spent. I have not heard about his family being in danger because of it, but it would not surprise me. At the same time, I have seen enough other news about Musk that I am cautious about giving him the degree of trust that I afford someone like PDJT. But I am thrilled about what I see about Twitter so far and am hoping for the best.
I think we often get burned when we jump on a bandwagon without sufficient knowledge. It has happened when people have supported a number of politicians in the past whom they didn’t really know. In the meantime, I’m enjoying the liberal tears and the reports of followers being restored, etc.
TT … I don’t give anyone (public figures) the degree of trust I gave POTUS… and sadly, I no longer ‘trust’ as much as I once trusted Trump . I don’t see appreciating Musk’s moves wrt Twitter as a bandwagon …. and I don’t anticipate perfection in the future with regard to twitter.
I am watching what folks DO … and not what they say they will do. And that includes Trump.
There’re rumbles among the anons that the DIMs/Neocons will move next week to cancel the election. Don’t know if it is true or not… but I have expected it for a year now. Our Country experienced a coup on Jan 20, 2021 … they can do whatever they like and what can we do about it?
I don’t either. I appreciate what he is doing tremendously while being cautiously optimistic.
Gregg Phillips unequivocally says the election will proceed as usual. Of course, no one can know that 100%, but I believe he is correct and am not worried at all.
There’s a great deal we can do, especially now that more people are awake. I’m not going to list possibilities because I don’t want attention to be drawn to that kind of speculation here. But I think the people are empowered now.
Another factor is that whatever measures they might take to stop the election would adversely affect them as well. Are they willing to take that risk at this time of complete political weakness? One might say that because they are weak, they would risk it. But IMO, that would entail a complete takeover of the U.S., overthrowing the Constitution, and I don’t see them as being ready to do that now in such an overt way.
I also believe we have people working behind the scenes to mitigate the kinds of disasters we imagine could happen. I know Trump has a team of people working on policy, and I continue to trust him.
We are the majority, and we do have power.
Bottom line for me: make personal preparations for any kind of disaster, be alert and aware, pray, and trust God. Worrying is counter-productive. 😊
I am skeptical about Musk, but totally agree he has done a brave and wonderful thing. He is like DeSantis, you can have different opinions about his actual connections and motivations, but the the ACTIONS they take are objectively good things, very good things.
ANYONE who lives in a “hippie collective” is by definition NOT MAGA.
There is nothing GREAT about living in a “collective.”
When you grow up in a family of 7 kids you never grasp/accept that insanity, you’ve already lived it. Some evening’s the living room was the ring for amateur night a the WWF … it only took one misspoke word/action/or look to light that fire. The smart
ones left the area quickly after turning the volume up on the tv 📺 … so they could at least hear what they were watching before the rumble started. The one you never ever ever mess with was the first born and the first of only two girls, my big sister. She’d make the nasty nazi ⚡️ ⚡️ younger brothers look and act like scaredy-cat sissy’s .. I’m not kidding. Survival entailed hasty exits from the unfolding crime scene.
Experience is a hard master/cough ..
Lol! I had 32 first cousins. All hillbillies like me. That really WAS like a cage-match sometimes!
LOL … I my case it looks/feels better in hindsight …but family – aunts/uncles, grandparents were great. Cousins on my Dad’s side were alway fun/trouble, my Mom’s side were a touch verklempt publicly but when the parents/aunts-uncles weren’t around they cut loose too, and never got caught as much as my brothers and sister. LOL
Dad’s side German Lutheran or lutern with the accent, Mom’s side Alabama baptists .. we always got ourselves in trouble at church .. it was more physically painful than spiritually awkward.
I used to get the “thigh pinch” if I misbehaved in church!
Oh yeah, what is it with mothers (?) are they genetically engineered to pinch so hard!?
All efforts to quiet the misbehaving kid is lost as soon as the kid starts wailing in pain, during the sermon no less. Then the parent taking the kid out into the vestibule.
Fambly tree didn’t branch 🙂 ….
(JUST KIDDING!!!!! )….
I have a few first-cousin marriages in my family tree. There just weren’t that many people around to choose from, I guess.
One set of Elvis’ grandparents were 1st cousins too, iirc 😉
Lol, Elvis is IN my family tree!
We are 7th cousins, twice removed!
A sibling has half your DNA
A cousin has a quarter.
“Second cousin” means you have one common pair of great grand parents, third cousin one common pair of great-great grandparents, etc. A seventh cousin ought to have six “greats” in that sentence, and usually “twice removed” means one person has the same 6-greats-grandparent couple as the other has, for an 8 greats-grandparent couple.
Going from a cousin to a seventh cousin is six generations, so that’s 1/64th, so do the multiplication (1/4 x 1/64th) and you get…
A seventh cousin has 1/256th. Twice removed (assuming that means one of you is the tenth descendant of the couple the other is the eighth descendant of) brings it to 1/1024th.
And this assumes no half or steps, or milkman-is-actually-the-daddy anywhere in either chain.
Yep. Very, very distant. And not something that shows up in the DNA studies people generally get.
I rely on documentation for genealogy, as DNA is rarely a useful tool for it, as you have so ably demonstrated! Add in the occasional “milkman,” and it really is pretty useless!
Yep. Well at this distance, it’s basically no relationship at all, really.
You clearly are not Southern 😉
Once forcibly 😆
That’s awesome!!! I’d have to check Relative Finder to see if I Might be related to him too! 🌹
As Steve points out, it’s not a close relation. But then, how closely related am I to my 6th great-grandfather? But it’s still cool to know who he was.
It’s always a fun rabbit hole to explore those twisted family ties! <3
The bigger issue is the likelihood that he’s not actually your 6th great grandfather gets fairly high–lots of milkmen and plumber possibilities in there.
But yes it’s cool to know your *nominal* ancestry.
Yep! Though w/ some of the DNA stuff that’s happened you can potentially increase the odds of the paper trail & bloodline coinciding…or if it diverges you can Sometimes rather reasonably deduce that inflection point.
I love doing it.
Me too, when the mood strikes ☺
All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.
Ah yes, “the circle of life …” bwahahahahaha
What goes around – comes around.
Thank you Steve, fabulous as always 😉👍‼️
“Today at 4.20 am, the Kiev regime carried out a terrorist attack on the ships of the Black Sea Fleet and civilian vessels that were on the outer and inner raids of the Sevastopol base.
Nine unmanned aerial vehicles and seven autonomous marine unmanned aerial vehicles were involved in the attack.
As a result of the operational measures taken by the forces of the ships of the Black Sea Fleet, all air targets were destroyed.
During the repulse of a terrorist attack on the outer roadstead of Sevastopol, four naval unmanned vehicles were destroyed using naval weapons and naval aviation of the Black Sea Fleet, three more vehicles were destroyed on the inner roadstead.
The sea minesweeper Ivan Golubets received minor damage, as well as a boom in Yuzhnaya Bay.
It should be emphasized that the ships of the Black Sea Fleet that were subjected to a terrorist attack are involved in ensuring the security of the “grain corridor” within the framework of the international initiative for the export of agricultural products from Ukrainian ports.
The preparation of this terrorist act and the training of servicemen of the Ukrainian 73rd Special Center for Naval Operations were carried out under the guidance of British specialists located in the city of Ochakov, Mykolaiv region of Ukraine.
>>>According to available information, representatives of this unit of the British Navy took part in the planning, provision and implementation of a terrorist act in the Baltic Sea on September 26 this year to undermine the Nord Stream-1 and Nord Stream-2 gas pipelines”<<<
WOW. So Russia is fingering the BRITISH for attacking the pipeline.
Am so pissed off with these bastards, without any debate or discussion, by your leave or kiss my fucking arse they slithered into this war. It’ll take a generation maybe two, if ever, to get straight again with the sane half of the world.
At least you’ve got a chance with PDJT, here they’re all in thrall to the nwo globo shite, there is literally no one, or party against it, to vote for.
While unlikely, a combination of R-Cons taking the House, R-Con super majority in senate AND Trump as Speaker, I see hope.
Yea. Unlikely. OK, zero chance with Uniparty.
My crystal ball sez a Biden Impeachment may happen after Rs take both houses.
I think it is a play by Ds/Uniparty to have that happen, so they can claim victim. They must keep JoBlo upright and reasonably coherent or hidden until then. It is a race …
25th Amendment is more likely than an impeachment, IMO.
Yeah, saving Britain is going to be a problem again. This time the Nazis came in really slowly, singing racial kumbaya, and disguising their agenda in service of minorities, instead of against them. But ultimately it’s the same totalitarian mentality, Orwellian as all hell.
I see some hope, actually, and not that far off, but we will have to fight hard and kill the rot here in America, at the same time.
Trump and Brexit happened together for a reason.
Saving Europe in general is going to take a lot, and the people aren’t necessarily going to want to do what it will take.
“…British specialists located in the city of Ochakov, Mykolaiv region of Ukraine.”
^^^ Them Brits are “fair” targets, as they are belligerents in the fight. As any other foreign nationals in Ukraine, coordinating / executing the fight between Ukraine /Russia.
>>>According to available information, representatives of this unit of the British Navy took part in the planning, provision and implementation of a terrorist act in the Baltic Sea on September 26 this year to undermine the Nord Stream-1 and Nord Stream-2 gas pipelines”<<<
^^^ Assuming russia has it, looking forward to Russia presenting evidence in the UN. AND, demanding “International Agreements and Rules” be followed.
Same as Russia has done with Biolabs in Ukraine.
Let the chips fall where they may. This shit needs to stop.
Dr. Peter McCullough is being progressively stripped of his medical credentials – The Burning Platform
No more youtube for him now that they are demanding credentials blessed by WEF critters.
The second part – that letter of resignation – was fascinating.
Saving my comment that I left.
That letter of resignation contains a beautiful example of how China takes over scientific journals as part of the Chinese takeover of Western scientific organizations – by a strategy which includes what amounts to “science dumping”. That is the obvious part. The hidden hand of organizational manipulation is much more personal and deadly. This is ultimately the source of McCullough’s fall. Beijing.
Thus, from initial capture, the CCP promotes flawed, politically correct, pro-China, “woke” dummies as “leaders” in the West. Those airheads are easily controlled and manipulated.
Whatever bamboozles the Westerners is used. Money for some, power for others, and always the slow boil of grievance and censorship through psychological manipulation and crisis theater.
All the while, making sure that the audience never associates a Chinese face with the takeover operation.
Why, that almost sounds like the Democrat party – another target.
Good job, Xi Jinping!

“Whatever bamboozles the Westerners is used. Money for some, power for others, and always the slow boil of grievance and censorship through psychological manipulation and crisis theater.”
I’d bet there’s some FangFang in there too …
Oh, yes. Definitely. And what is interesting is that it is almost never exposed. Fang-Fang was the exception.
Panda face or what was it, Dragon face.
Dr. McCullough now has few options to continue to practice medicine, since his board certifications are revoked — that means, among other things, that his hospital privileges are likely gone too.
IIRC, Dr. McCullough is “vaccinated”, as is Dr. Ryan Cole and other doctors who are speaking the truth about the “vaccines.”
However, the “establishment medical profession” can’t / won’t accept the truth. Even as they themselves begin to sicken (and, in the case of the Canadian doctors, die from) the effects of the “vaccines.”
Yours Truly now understands why her own MD son and DIL will not go against a “mandate” or “requirement” that they be “vaccinated and boosted” in order for them to keep their jobs. At some point, they may well pay a high “price” for their compliance. God help them.
It may be an idea to save, archive, or print out, any papers and articles that are written by doctors who are speaking the truth about the “vaccines.” Ditto with moving videos they make from You Tube to Rumble or to Bitchute.
Spot on thoughts.
At some point MD son and DIL may put their health, and their children, all vaxed IIRC, above a paycheck. Not being judgemental here. It is their choice to follow logic, or…
With TW allowing free Speech, perhaps truth will expose Covidiocy in general and Covidiot Injections for the sham they are.

Six months later, Gonzalez’s brother Nebosvod started to remember their father “physically and sexually abusing me and my brothers, which started when we were very young and continued until around 2008, when [Gonzalez] was 7,” she recalled.
Looking more and more like an Ed Buck kind of thing.
Okay, this is WEIRDER by the minute. Look at this image from the article:
The 2008 Thanksgiving article names “Gypsy Taub, David Dupape, and their three small children.”
THEN, the 2013 article shows Dupape “officiating the wedding of Gypsy Taub and Jaymz Smiths.”
And Gypsy is from MOSCOW.
There is some wild shit going on here.

Intentional Government FRAUD in [Market-Ticker-Nad]
“Taking into account the terrorist act carried out on October 29 by the Kiev regime with the participation of UK specialists against ships of the Black Sea Fleet and civilian vessels involved in ensuring the security of the grain corridor, the Russian side suspends participation in the implementation of agreements on the export of agricultural products from Ukrainian ports.”
The WEF forces manipulating Washington and London knew this would happen.

Putin: ‘The Situation Is, to a Certain Extent, Revolutionary’
Putin in fact did nail where we are: on the edge of a Revolution.
In an all-encompassing address to the plenary session of the 19th annual meeting of the Valdai Club, President Putin delivered no less than a devastating, multi-layered critique of unipolarity.
From Shakespeare to the assassination of Gen Soleimani; from musings on spirituality to the structure of the UN; from Eurasia as the cradle of human civilization to the interconnection of BRI, SCO and the INSTC; from nuclear dangers to that peripheral peninsula of Eurasia “blinded by the idea that Europeans are better than others”, the address painted a Brueghel-esque canvas of the “historical milestone” facing us, in the middle of “the most dangerous decade since the end of WWII.”
Putin even ventured that, in the words of the classics, “the situation is, to a certain extent, revolutionary” as “the upper classes cannot, and the lower classes do not want to live like this anymore”. So everything is in play, as “the future of the new world order is being shaped before our eyes.”
Way beyond a catchy slogan about the game the West is playing, “bloody, dangerous and dirty”, the address and Putin’s interventions at the subsequent Q&A should be analyzed as a coherent vision of past, present and future. Here we offer just a few of the highlights:
“The world is witnessing the degradation of world institutions, the erosion of the principle of collective security, the substitution of international law for ‘rules’”.
“Even at the height of the Cold War, nobody denied the existence of the culture and art of the Other. In the West, any alternative point of view is declared subversive.”
“The Nazis burned books. Now the Western fathers of ‘liberalism’ are banning Dostoevsky.”
“There are at least two ‘Wests’. The first is traditional, with a rich culture. The second is aggressive and colonial.”
“Russia has not and does not consider itself an enemy of the West.
Russia tried to build relations with the West and NATO – to live together in peace and harmony. Their response to all cooperation was simply ‘no’.”
“We do not need a nuclear strike on Ukraine, there is no point – neither political nor military.”
“In part” the situation between Russia and Ukraine can be considered a civil war: “When creating Ukraine, the Bolsheviks endowed it with primordially Russian territories – they gave it all of Little Russia, the entire Black Sea region, the entire Donbass. Ukraine evolved as an artificial state.”
“Ukrainians and Russians are one people – this is a historical fact. Ukraine has evolved as an artificial state. The only country that can guarantee its sovereignty is the country which created it – Russia.”
“The unipolar world is coming to an end. The West is incapable of single-handedly ruling the world. The world stands at a historical milestone ahead of the most dangerous and important decade since World War II.”
“Humanity has two options – either we continue accumulating the burden of problems that is certain to crush all of us, or we can work together to find solutions.”
What do we do after the orgy?
Amidst a series of absorbing discussions, the heart of the matter at Valdai is its 2022 report, “A World Without Superpowers”.
The report’s central thesis – eminently correct – is that “the United States and its allies, in fact, no longer enjoy the status of dominant superpower, but the global infrastructure that serves it is still in place.”
Of course all major interconnected issues at the current crossroads were precipitated because” Russia became the first major power which, guided by its own ideas of security and fairness, chose to discard the benefits of ‘global peace’ created by the only superpower.”
Well, not exactly “global peace”; rather a Mafia-enforced ethos of “our way or the highway”. The report quite diplomatically characterizes the freezing of Russia’s gold and foreign currency reserves and the “mop up” of Russia’s property abroad as “Western jurisdictions”, “if necessary”, being “guided by political expediency rather than the law”.
That’s in fact outright theft, under the shadow of the “rules-based international order”.
The report – optimistically – foresees the advent of a sort of normalized “cold peace” as “the best available solution today” – acknowledging at least this is far from guaranteed, and “will not halt the fundamental rebuilding of the international system on new foundations.”
The foundation for evolving multipolarity has in fact been presented
by the Russia-China strategic partnership only three weeks before imperially-ordered provocations forced Russia to launch the Special Military Operation (SMO).
In parallel, the financial lineaments of multipolarity had been proposed since at least July 2021, in a paper co-written by Professor Michael Hudson and Radhika Desai.
The Valdai report duly acknowledges the role of Global South medium-sized powers that “exemplify the democratization of international politics” and may “act as shock absorbers during periods of upheaval.” That’s a direct reference to the role of BRICS+ as key protagonists.
On the Big Picture across the chessboard, the analysis tends to get more realistic when it considers that “the triumph of ‘the only true idea’ makes effective dialogue and agreement with supporters of different views and values impossible by definition.”
Putin alluded to it several times in his address. There’s no evidence whatsoever the Empire and its vassals will be deviating from their normative, imposed, value-laden unilateralism.
As for world politics beginning to “rapidly return to a state of anarchy built on force”, that’s self-evident: only the Empire of Chaos wants to impose anarchy, as it completely ran out of geopolitical and geoeconomic tools to control rebel nations, apart from the sanctions tsunami.
So the report is correct when it identifies that the childish neo-Hegelian “end of history” wet dream in the end hit the wall of History: we’re back to the pattern of large scale conflicts between centers of power.
And it’s also a fact that “simply changing the ‘operator’ as it happened in earlier centuries” (as in the U.S. taking over from Britain) “just won’t work.”
China might harbor a desire to become the new sheriff, but the Beijing leadership definitely is not interested. And even if that happened the Hegemon would fiercely prevented it, as “the entire system” remains “under its control (primarily finance and the economy).”
So the only way out, once again, is multipolarity – which the report characterizes, rather vaguely, as “a world without superpowers”, still in need of “a system of self-regulation, which implies much greater freedom of action and responsibility for such actions.”
Stranger things have happened in History. As it stands, we are plunged deep into the maelstrom of complete collapse. Putin in fact did nail where we are: on the edge of a Revolution.
And Vlad seems to be the sane one in the room, a la One Flew Over the Coo-coos Nest.
Yes Pgroup …
Remarkable but true! Astonishing, even!
Putin’s entire speech is on the Solzhenitsyn level of insight and analysis. RAC posted the entire thing a couple days ago, a long read but well worth it.
THE GUY WHO HAMMERED NANCY PELOSI’S HUSBAND IS YOUR QUINTESSENTIAL SAN FRAN LEFTY WEIRDO
28 October 2022 by Larry Johnson 29 Comments
And Paulie P’s lover.😉
If only they’d use some of that fancy snooping technology…ya know to get the bad guys….Paulie’s late night activities and friends might prove to be highly entertaining
Ohh I believe that! Paul Serran’s T’gram had Jordan Sather’s description and his connection of the dots make sense.
“SO a guy in his underwear that’s been in a nudist wedding was in Nancy Pelosi’s house with her husband while she wasn’t home and the police were called for a “wellness check” (not a “home intruder”) and found them arguing and wrestling over a hammer?
Sounds like a lover’s quarrel.”
Probably answered an ad by Paulie P on Grindr…
From Gab ;
Nancy Pelosi, daughter of mob crime boss and married to gay money manager Paul who at age 82, runs a San FranSicko money shop, Financial Leasing Services LLC, has a very bad day and goes home to blow off some steam with a gay hooker who is apparently an incestuous pedophile. They get to arguing over drugs in their underwear at 2AM (at age 82 in the home of the third in line to be president mind you… meaning secret service were there). Nancy’s fake faggot husband calls the police to report a domestic disturbance and they send over the VIP squad to handle it tactfully because that vengeful bitch would ruin the career of anyone who would not. Then while the cops were there the gay prostitute picked up a hammer and cracked Paul’s skull open in front of cops in the home of the speaker of the house. He is rushed to a hospital for emergency brain surgery and the media hacks at Rolling Stone run cover blaming MAGA white domestic extremists. Welcome to Weimerica circa 2022.
