The Twitter Files
The big deal right now is the Twitter Files, which from what I’ve seen, seem on the verge of confirming what we already strongly suspected. I’ve only seen 36 parts of the thread; the picture being painted so far is some guy near (but not at) the top making a bad decision and no one in the company having the guts to challenge it. (Note that there is, so far, no real evidence of malicious intent, but plenty of evidence that a decision might have been made due to political bias–i.e., because the decision maker was a leftist, it might not even have occurred to him how badly he was favoring his own side. Not all biased acts are taken with the realization they are biased; that’s why they’re called “biases.”) We don’t know yet who, or what organization, specifically requested the Hunter Biden stuff be suppressed.
There’s more to come.
The biggest part of this is that enough of the Left, and normies, are on Twitter that there’s a decent chance millions of people who have no idea Hunter Biden had anything to do with laptops, will see this.
As Drudge used to put it: developing…
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.

This week, 3 PM MT on Friday, markets closed for the weekend
Rhodium going nowhere, palladium actually down. But remember those metals are used industrially. Them not going up while everything else is, should worry people. Those people, that is, who haven’t already figured out our economy is being fed down the toilet deliberately.
Percentage wise, silver is the big winner, by far. (That’s OK, I’ve got lots of it.)
Platinum has broken a thousand bucks, and gold is close to 1800.00. Indeed it closed above that mark on Thursday.
Apropos of Nothing
Apparently the US Soccer Team got through the first round of the World Cup. This is where the 32 teams are divided into eight groups of four, and each team plays all of the other teams in the group (total, six games). 3 points awarded for a win, 1 for a draw, zero for a loss. The top two teams in each group advance to a more conventional “bracket” of sixteen teams–you lose, you’re done. The United States was the second team in Group B, so it gets to play the first team in Group A. (As near as I can tell the groups are set up by random draw with some restrictions to try to make the members not all from the same multinational league.)
The first of those games is tomorrow at 8AM Mountain Time, and it’s the one between the United States and the Netherlands.
Also Apropos of Nothing
The previous is a USA Today story (yeah, I know), but it’s regarding the team that found the SS Central America. It’s behind a subscription wall but it looks like the video will play even without one.
The Central America sank in 1857. It was one of the vessels that carried people from the East Coast to Panama, where the passengers could then cross the skinny part of North America and take another ship to California. Or vice versa. The transcontinental railroad was still twelve years in the future, but the Gold Rush had been going on for eight years.
People went in both directions. Gold came west-to-east. The Central America encountered a hurricane in September 1857 and went down in well over a thousand feet of water. Of her 578 passengers, 425 perished. In terms of lives lost, this was one of the largest US disasters up to that point.
The ship was under the command of Commander William Lewis Herndon, veteran of the Mexican-American War and explorer of the Amazon Valley. He went down with his ship. There is a statue of him at Annapolis; I recall hearing that was the only peacetime hero so honored. And he was a national hero; the last national hero before the Civil War. (His daughter later married Chester Alan Arthur–yes, that Chester Alan Arthur. And, Herndon, Virginia, is named for him.
There were 13,600 kilograms (!) of gold on board–13.6 metric tons. That was about 8 million dollars worth back then, and roughly 750 million dollars today. (It should be noted that this is well under a cubic yard of gold.)
The loss of the gold actually triggered an economic crisis. All money back then, even highly leveraged/fractional reserve bank notes, was ultimately based on gold; a bunch of money had literally disappeared.
But in 1988 Thompson’s group sent down an ROV (basically a drone), and over the next couple of decades a lot of that gold has been recovered, as well as artifacts, such as photographs, clothing, guns, brass items, and on and on. Much of that will be auctioned off this weekend (according to the story).
Just for instance, there is this Daguerrotype found in the wreck, nicknamed the Mona Lisa of the Depths.
I’ve actually seen this picture in person since it and many other artifacts was exhibited at the last American Numismatic Association convention. I got to talk to Bob Evans, who is the chief scientist of the team that recovered everything; and he is the man in the video in the linked story (where I saw it earlier today, it was not behind a paywall).
Much of the recovered gold was in bricks–several hundred ounces, much larger than the standard 400 oz bars you see in the movies–but much had been minted into coins in San Francisco.
US gold coinage issued before 1866 does not have the motto “In God We Trust.” (And the $2 1/2 quarter eagle never did.) Otherwise, the Liberty Head designs used in 1857 were used from 1840 or so through 1907 (a remarkably long run for a design in those days). But if you’re on a middle class budget with some disposable income, and you collect coins, you can’t collect gold by date. But you might want one gold coin with the motto and one without the motto. The problem is the $5, $10 and $20 without the motto are scare at best, and very challenging to find in uncirculated condition. It’s not that they didn’t make many, but that they got used. People weren’t about to set ten or twenty whole dollars aside back then, that was real money. If they actually got their hands on one of these, they ended up using it.
Except for the 1857-S double eagle. Those are relatively available in uncirculated condition, and that’s because hundreds of them were “saved” at the bottom of the ocean, in alkaline water.
The above image is a coin graded MS-66 (which is a pretty high grade on the 1-70 scale used for coins) and is worth roughly $30,000. Many of the other dates simply do not exist in this grade, so as I said, relatively available. (The best ones are in MS67+.) I do own one of these, but in a lesser grade that was quite a bit less expensive (however the absolute lowest a double eagle, even a dog-butt-common one in low grade, will cost today is about $2K mostly on account of the gold content).
It isn’t quite true that gold coins don’t react; here’s another one of a different color (in MS67). I find this color more appealing, to be honest.
Why Mars Sucks
Of all of the other planets in the Solar System, Mars is by far the most Earthlike. Yet it’s dry, has a thin atmosphere (0.6% of our sea-level air pressure) almost entirely made of carbon dioxide, and frigid, mostly colder than Antarctica, averaging -80 F or -60 C. Also, the surface gets blasted with solar radiation…not at a huge rate, but you wouldn’t want to deal with it long term.
Not the best real estate, but with a lot of equipment, we could possibly make a go of it, growing food in pressurized habitats. Oxygen is available, carbon is available, hydrogen is available too if you dig; there appears to be plenty of buried ice there. Contrast with the Moon, where ice can be found in some few places, but which is otherwise just a big freaking rock. Rocks contain plenty of oxygen (though it would take a lot of energy to extract it), but that’s about it for native resources for sustaining life.
Yes, Mars could be settled at great effort and at great expense, and the colonists could never, ever go outside without a pressure suit, and even then they probably won’t want to spend all of their time out there. Antarctica is benign by comparison: you won’t get radiation sickness and you can breathe. Even the Himalayas are vastly better than Mars (and people don’t live high up in them, but down in the relatively lower elevations well under 20,000 feet).
Yet we know Mars once had liquid surface water…which implies a much more congenial temperature and an atmosphere which a much higher pressure. Depending on what it was made of (probably not oxygen!), you might have been able to live there with nothing more than an oxygen mask.
If it was so much more livable then, why does it suck so much now?
The atmosphere went away.
The old atmosphere was thick enough to keep the planet warm. Yes, that means “greenhouse effect.” (It’s real; Earth would be a frozen iceball without it.) The current atmosphere isn’t thick enough to keep water from boiling away, but then the water is likely to freeze first because it’s so dang cold. But then it will sublimate–turning directly from solid to water vapor.
The atmosphere also does little to stop cosmic rays and solar particles from hitting the surface, too. Much of that crap is blocked by our atmosphere.
Well, okay…but why, then, did the atmosphere go away? We know there used to be one, why isn’t it there any more?
That’s a combination of Mars’ low surface gravity and its lack of a magnetic field.
The surface gravity means that atmospheric molecules, which are zipping around at varying speeds (but with an average speed directly related to the mass of the molecules and the temperature), will sometimes be travelling faster than Mars’ escape velocity; if that happens to a molecule in the upper reaches of the atmosphere, it might leave Mars for good. Since the average speed depends on temperature it’s only a matter of time before some molecule in the upper atmosphere, rebounding from a collision with another one, busts the escape velocity and goes away. Or think of it this way: Mars is a gravity trap for gas molecules, but it leaks because the gravity isn’t strong enough.
(Even here on Earth, which much more surface gravity, we lose some water this way–it’s a lighter molecule than oxygen or carbon dioxide, thus will travel faster on average at the same temperature.)
What’s left is the heaviest atmospheric molecule of them all…wait for it…carbon dioxide.
I said it was partially due to the surface gravity; the other factor is the solar wind. This is a constant stream of charged particles blasting out of the Sun; it’s part of the radiation load people on the surface of Mars (or the Moon) would have to endure. There are also cosmic rays, very high-energy particles that were blasted out of supernovae or…well I don’t think they know everything yet about where they come from. But: same story, they hit the Martian surface.
They would hit us here on earth, too, but with the exception of some cosmic rays, they’re almost entirely blocked.
On Mars this radiation isn’t blocked, and eventually, over tens or even hundreds of millions of years, strips the atmosphere away, hitting atmospheric molecules and giving them a big boost in speed, accelerating the process I just described.
This shouldn’t be confused with coronal mass ejections. The solar wind is always there; a CME can be thought of as a gust…a big gust.
What blocks the solar wind here, and why isn’t it happening at Mars?
What blocks it here is Earth’s magnetic field. The charged particles get deflected as they move through the magnetic field.
Mars has no magnetic field. Your compass would be useless for direction-finding. So without a magnetic field, Mars loses its atmosphere…and sucks.
But we’re going to keep digging. Why does Earth have a magnetic field? Why doesn’t Mars have one?
The Earth’s magnetic field is generated by our liquid iron outer core; eddy currents in all that molten iron generate a magnetic field.
Mars doesn’t have a liquid iron core.
Why not? Because it’s colder inside, and Mars is colder inside because it cooled off more rapidly than Earth after it was formed. And Mars cooled off more rapidly for one simple reason: It’s considerably smaller than Earth.
So, in the end, the reason Mars sucks is, it’s too small.

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.

“the picture being painted so far is some guy near (but not at) the top making a bad decision and no one in the company having the guts to challenge it.”
Sounds like every police department in the country.
And the military.
DOJ, FIB, IRS…
That’s not the picture I see.
What I see is a conspiracy of leftists, mostly unknown to the CEO, with too much power over content, making a decision to use a policy as an excuse to censor a story they knew to be true, that would tank the candidacy of their preferred guy.
That’s what I see.
And I’m sure this scenario played out in various ways many times before this one.
I have a hard time believing the top guy didn’t know. Even if the underlings acted on their own, how could the top guy not see what was happening and look into it. He may not have ordered the censoring, but he had to know it was happening.
Plausible deniability is being tossed out there to see if it sticks.
Yup. He let it happen. Controlled. He went along. Took orders from somewhere. Read the tea-leaves put in front of him. He let it happen.
His eyes are weird, drugs or something. Almost dead eyes.
Perpetually on drugs of some sort.
What a waste …
Known “rasta” boy. Massive toker.
In other words continually wasted .. 😑🤚
They have sold their souls to the devil, and eternity is the price they will pay.
The top guy looks like he’s stoned on a regular basis.
He’s a figurehead at best. Always has been.
That’s my reading, too. He was put in to let the commies run wild, take money, and deny, deny, deny that anything was going on.
Jack was utterly convinced of his own genius, and he hung out with the “edgy thinkers” on Twitter, but it was all show and no go. He couldn’t even add an edit button.
His own genius?
Dude, Jack went to Bishop DuBourg HS here. That’s one of the Catholic HSs of last resort. If he was a genius, he would have gone to Priory or St. Louis U High (SLUH or the U High, where two of my brothers went).
The guy is normal…and most likely stoned.
… and now a half-fast version of Cheech & Chong … and he’s not funny ..
You would think. But I’ve seen the Deep State in action.
Censoring WAS, IS across all (damned near all) platforms.

True. Palatable, if only to to low-info voter.
You don’t see it like that becaus eyou’re not looking at the painting. Tiabbi is making it sound like mass incompetence rather than malice–that’s the point I was trying to make.
We know it’s malice. He won’t say it.
I think Tiabbi is walking the very thin line of actually just reporting what happened without commentary.
I hope you’re right.
Exactly. He can’t come out and say that the Twitteroids SCRUBBED EVIDENCE before Elon got there, but IMO they did.
I think they most likely did.
A unknown person to the CEO who had an Eric holder and DNC connection?
Heard this on Tim Pool.
I think CEO had no choice.
Maybe I heard it on Bannon? I am busy and just catch here and there info.
Yes – this was in APPLE, but I’m theorizing that Twitter had its own DOJ-bot.
Apple had Eric Holder’s ex-chief of staff as the head of their “Trust and Safety” (read CENSORSHIP) department. She’s moved on, replaced by a lesbian with no paper trail.
The commies are everyplace.
Might be he had no choice.
“Whatever you think justice might be, this ain’t it!”
Ayn Rand, speaking as the little fish.
So, when Olympus Mons was formed, Mars may have had a liquid core, and thus a magnetic field, and thus a nicer atmosphere?
Yes…but very likely no plate tectonics. Which is why that sucker got so big. Imagine how big the big island of Hawaii would be if it included all the old vulcanism of the Emperor Seamounts in its history.
Realtors would be ecstatic.
Hey, now — Mauna Loa is working on it…..
It’s already moving past the hot spot that let it get as big as it has gotten. The most active volcano now is Kilauea (to the southeast; i.e., still over the hot spot) and there is another sub-surface volcano to the southeast of that; wait a few hundred thousand years and that guy will be the Big One.
IIRC, with Earth, we had the fortunate circumstance of being in the same orbit with another Mars-sized collider body. When it collided with the Earth, besides giving Earth its distinctive tilt and seasons, the densest materials settled into the Earth while the rest spun back into orbit and reformed into the Moon.
So the Earth is denser and has greater gravity, a nice tilt, an ~24h rotation (technically shorter, but meh), and a sizeable lunar body in orbit, providing us with handy tidal properties that help keep the water moving and not freezing. Also, the Moon is moving away from the Earth, but at the moment, it is at just the proper distance from the Earth to make spectacular solar eclipses. Oh, and the Moon helps deflect stray asteroids and comets, too.
The dense materials included heavy metals of the nuclear fission variety, so the Earth’s core is heated by a giant nuclear reactor keeping all the iron moving fluidly and sustaining an impressive magnetic field for such a small planet.
By contrast, Mars had none of these benefits. Its density is too low, and likely the core isn’t near as energetic as Earth’s, hence the lack of a magnetic field. While we did get a picture of a Martian eclipse for the first time – a rarity for humans – in the grand scheme, it doesn’t compare to a total solar eclipse on Earth and appears more like a satellite transit.
For my part, I’d instead colonize the Moon first. Or Greenland.
LoL at Greenland.
Can we not just adjust the standard minute a little tiny bit so that we do not need a leap day every 4 years???
Just asking for a friend. 😎
We’re having too much fun with it, so no.
Well, they just had a confab to agree not to do leap seconds, so there’s that….
That might be considered to be disrespectful to the ones who established the sexagesimal system and could have far reaching consequences that might actually result in a ripple in time and could possibly spill over into other established areas that could ultimately disrupt world order and plunge us all into unfathomable chaos. Best not to touch that as I’m stupid enough as is. 🙃
Besides I enjoy being blissfully unaware for hours, days, weeks and on rare occasion even months at a time not knowing the rest of the world has either jumped ahead or simply paused as it offers me numerous excuses to have done or not done something I should have in a timely manner. 🧐🤔🙄😏😖
That is a big part of the rub since our concept of timekeeping originated from astronomical observation, and by extension, very precise geometries of degrees inherited from classical times.
If we were counting the vibration of cesium atoms without trying to make them match with arc-seconds of the Earth’s rotation, we could assign an SI time unit any value we wanted based on those vibrations.
The problem with the calendar, which is really independent from how the day is subdivided, is that there is a non-integer number of daily cycles (day plus night, or from one noon to the next) in the yearly cycle (throughout the four seasons, from one spring equinox to the next).
By careful measurements, this is found to be something like 365.242219 on average, so by adding a day every 4 years gives 365.25, which is slightly too much, so by refraining from adding that day three times per four centuries brings the ratio to 365.2425, which is still slightly high but good enough for a long time.
The historical division of the day+night into 24 hours, each 60 minutes (minutiæ primo — first subdivisions) each into 60 seconds (minutiæ secondo — second subdivisions) was retained because everyone already agreed on using it. Alternate divisions based on powers of 10 have never got much traction. 86400 seconds to the day it became and remained.
The parts of the metric system that did become successful did so because they proved to be more useful than the previous alternatives when everyone had their own size of what they called inches or ounces.
I concur about colonizing the Moon or Greenland first. Much easier to change one’s mind than colonizing Mars.
“because the decision maker was a leftist, it might not even have occurred to him how badly he was favoring his own side.”
The guards at Auschwitz and all the other Nazi death camps likely used the same excuse.
So the Nazis at Twitter are in good company.
Personally, I can’t pretend that Nazis don’t realize what the Nazis are doing, or don’t realize that what they’re doing is so far beyond wrong that it’s a crime against humanity.
It doesn’t matter if some Nazi doesn’t realize it’s a heinous act of evil to herd human beings into a gas chamber, or whether he claims that his ‘bias’ clouded his judgment.
‘Bias’ is not a defense.
Death penalty applies either way.
To be clear, I wasn’t saying it was a defense, just that that could have been his frame of mind, and that’s what Tiabbi seems to be describing
I understand 👍
I guess I just don’t understand how his (or any criminal’s) frame of mind is relevant, unless they intend to utilize the transparent ploy of pleading insanity.
I don’t understand why Tiabbi would effectively throw a life-preserver to these thugs.
The enemy never makes that mistake, it never even occurs to them, but our side always does, like some kind of pathological imperative to do whatever is possible to make sure evil is never punished.
I don’t understand it.
I don’t know if it’s virtue-signalling, or self-hatred, or a traitorous nature, or if people are just sick in the head.
All it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to remain silent.
On the rare occasion that our side speaks up, it’s usually to make excuses for the enemy.
I think it’s a kind of psychological training that has happened through media over the last 50-60 years, and possibly longer. The virtue-signaling is a PRODUCT of the training. It’s almost reflexive – almost instinctive. People just do it almost automatically.
That’s my theory.
WE DO NOT KNOW what other communication was happening.
We also do not know if an unknown person was working and paid by Mr Global and there by muddied the visible trail.
We DO KNOW that people like Biden and Klaus Schwab are PUPPETS so having a mid-level “SPY/SABOTEUR’ inside Twatter makes very good sense.
This IMO is a great undiscussed issue about our side, the relentless virtue signaling born of brainwashing. Much (but NOT all) of it harmless or trivial in itself, but a frame of mind which is very detrimental. It is a part of what holds our side back in attaining the required consciousness.
Absolutely. It takes work to resist. I found that getting back on Twitter and being exposed to the left kicks a lot of the training back into play.
It’s a self-defense mechanism. Typical of narcissism but not only narcissists have it.
Start with this, you aren’t a very good person
But you believe you are a good person (internal lie)
You do something bad b/c you don’t care
You get caught
You get used to blame deflecting by talking about what a good person you are
Multiply this by every childhood experience and a lifetime of making excuses and cover up
Inevitably you get someone whose self-righteous lying is just part of wh they are – a hollow shell that TALKS AND LIES constantly. Whoopie.
As an adult, it reaches the point where literally every word out your mouth is bullshit. Not just adding a little bullshit here and there, not I mean their mouth is a flowing river of verbal diarhea, a whole Cream of Bullshit factory line.
They have no concept of “truth” or “virtue” because all they have is a lifetime of lies and lawyering – abusing words language and speech in a hollow effort to prop themselves up.
Sure, you can get some MK training for that, but I’m 100% convinced that has nothing, NOTHING, on good old-fashioned Narcissistic Personality Disorder.
Sounds exactly like Creepy PERVOTUS,
It begins in toddler-hood and never ceases. The majority of children today are simply never told no. They’re constantly redirected, accommodated, or put in a time-out corner for two minutes – and even that is not enforced. No rules, only suggestions. It goes without saying that these same out-of-control kids never get a swat on the behind.
What they DO get is constant, ridiculous, contrived, over-the-top praise, for anything and everything. From toddler-hood through college. The world revolves around THEM.
And there you have it, the narcissist conveyor belt.
Sorry for the rant. 🙄
I see it all the time. Kid does something Stupid/Dangerous and you say something? The Parent ends up YELLING AT YOU for saving their kid from harm.
Don’t YELL at Johnny like that, he is SENSITIVE! (After kid punches the pony…)
Don you DARE touch my child! (After you moved the kid from directly behind the pony where he was pulling it’s tail,,,,)
The end result is a Mike Brown type idiot who tries to take a loaded gun from a cop and gets SHOT.
Absolutely. When there are no boundaries regularly set, because the parents don’t want to deal with the pushback and discord that comes with setting boundaries – all their interaction with the child becomes defensive in nature. Like trying to catch the tennis balls flying out of the machine, rather than turning it down or off.
I think that the entire media-entertainment-leftculture complex teaches this. “You are good because of your identity group, or because you support all the approved identity groups.”
Your discourse, while brutally honest, is ROTFLMAO funny. 😂
LOL … I felt like I had to add some color to get a picture of how disgusting these people are.
Seriously. These people LIE for a living. These people are PAID to LIE, and LIE, and LIE. You could apply every weasely lawyer joke to the professional intelligencia class.
Maybe in a few years I’ll have enough material for a George Carlin sketch?
I agree, but state of mind has been introduced into the courts, which has been supported with decisions through the years.The participants in the game or business of law, depending on perspective, would rather bend it than have absolutes.
Which is one major reason why we are what we are today.
“Not the best real estate, but with a lot of equipment, we could possibly make a go of it, growing food in pressurized habitats. Oxygen is available, carbon is available, hydrogen is available too if you dig; there appears to be plenty of buried ice there.”
Won’t happen, at least not for long.
In any system where one person could go nuts, sabotage the system, and kill everyone — sooner or later, somebody will go nuts, sabotage the system, and kill everyone.
The problem with a fragile system is that anybody can break it. Breaking things is easy.
At 140 million miles from home, it would be a miracle if everybody didn’t go nuts.
On the other hand, they’d be far, far away from Biden. And Obola. And so on.
ON THE OTHER HAND, such a crew would probably be *picked* for wokeness and thus would *already* be nuts.
How many ‘other hands’ are there? We’re now up to three so maybe this is some sort of Indian religion.
At the end of a long day following a short sleep, there are as many hands as I can forget about having invoked in the prior sentences.
I swear that reading and commenting on this blog day after day gets me high. Especially comments like yours.
SIMPLES: Just send the WOKE crowd so WE are relieved of their stupidity here on earth.
… 👍 ..
Better yet, send them to Venus.
Mars actually might be useful real estate someday.
Some people will still line up for the opportunity. 😆🧑🏼🚀🚀
Shhhhhhhhh 🤫 …
Sometimes the hard stone-cold Truth can be so hilarious! 😂 😂 😂
Yeah, it’s not like you can go to the shopping malls … that’d drive me crazy .. wait
And that is key. I don’t think the degree of the bias or whether the person realized the extent of his favoritism really matters. If someone is acting out of political bias, they are fighting for one side over the other. This case happens to be one of the most consequential in that it has affected not only this country, but the world. Because certain facts were not allowed to be known, people were deprived of the knowledge they needed to make an informed decision. I don’t think the importance of this can be overstated.
I wasn’t trying to excuse it. But Tiabbi might be.
Yes. I don’t know anything about him or his point of reference. He seems to be trying to appear unbiased in his reporting.
From his Substack:
Matt is definately on the left but he is fairly honest and very intelligent. I had some of his Rolling Stone articles bookmarked.
Being on the left for this task makes him an important credible choice.
IMO why he was chosen. Plus, he has been honest in his assessments these past several years, like Greenwald and Dore.
Oh, I agree he is a very good choice. I have a lot of respect for Matt.
Liberals like him eventually see enough garbage they become moderates and finally conservative.
This will be a good experience for him.
Very interesting account of the Central America and the gold! I wonder how many of the people in the photos were on the ship.
Elon Musk just friggin’ nuked ’em on Twitter! Must watch Tucker Carlson with James Woods.
I know some may see that as hyperbolic—but not me. Thousands of pages have been released—I am betting of much better quality than any of the thousands of pages of FBI dumps and other dumps sending us off on wild goose chases.
Guess what??? NO FRIGGIN’ REDACTIONS! 😎
Excellent! The TRUTH is coming out.
Nuked as in set himself up as the sole arbitrator of right and wrong by publishing the truth thus leaping over a whole system of woke and evil string controlled judges and politicians that will now have to further tie themselves into knots to remain relevant. Almost god like and should provide much entertainment far into the future.
Have to wonder why the Crims ever allowed the sale of Twitter to go through.
Their armies of lawfare agents could easily have stalled and delayed and poison-pilled in perpetuity.
This is why I don’t believe Elon is controlled. For that to be true, then all of these reveals would have to be part of a plot that would somehow benefit the leftists. I don’t see that being the case. On some issues Elon is not in alignment with strictly conservative beliefs. In this case, the issue of freedom of speech, he is acting on his own volition and his principles do generally line up with ours.
“Guess what??? NO FRIGGIN’ REDACTIONS!”
Let the sunshine in! 😁
👍 🎵 🎶 🎵 🎶 🎵 🎶
Trivia, but notable. Woods, immediately prior to the interview with Tucker. Woods had just come back from the, range. (Practicing 2A citizen.)
G R E A T interview. Please listen in as scrolling about…
I THOUGHT it might be the same James Baker!!!
Crooked FBI Lawyer James Baker – One of the Architects of Spygate – Was Involved in Twitter’s Decision to Suppress Hunter Biden Laptop From Hell Story
December 2, 2022, 8:02 pm by Cristina Laila
As soon as that Tweet dropped—Jim Baker???
And this is only the beginning. Stay safe Elon!!!
Yup. We’re getting close to the SHADOW GOVERNMENT.
And they’re all Obama alumni, surprise, surprise.
This is blowing up. This dude told them to keep the story buried!!!
Damned right it is blowing up! I am so charged that I have not slept a wink!
Yeah, I need Zs now. See you later, bro! I’m taking a break!
BIG DAY IT WAS!!!
Somebody “updated” his Wikipedia page! LOL!!!
Should update “and served as” (sic) to “and by serving as” for accuracy
That’s golden !!
Guessing “treason” gets scrubbed from Wiki or is seriously watered down.
^^^ Hope I am wrong.
Deep State is formulating damage control. WH handlers, “watching” TW, Elon.
Apparently there’s at least one white hat mole at Wiki…
😂 🤣 😂 🤣 😂 🤣 😂
Anyone can edit a page. And anyone else can come by and edit it back.
Will the edit stick around? This one didn’t. The word “traitor” appears nowhere on his page as of right now. And I suspect someone is watching that page right now to “correct” future insertions of “traitor” just like people are parked watching the climate change pages.
Oh I am sure that someone inserted the word, took a screenshot and then posted it around.
It is still hilarious because it is TRUE.
We’ll know things have truly changed when the edit stays in.
Just now had a look and it’s gone.
“This page was last edited on 3 December 2022, at 02:46 (UTC).”
Their fast enough when it comes to themselves.
AND there is the Spy/Saboteur — Operative I was talking about a few minutes ago.
Laura Ingraham does a decent job of filling in the backstory on Hunter’s laptop—great to share to people who are just now asking “What about Hunter’s laptop?”
Helps as a refresher too. 😎
Excellent refresher. Still listening.
The infamous “4AM Talking Points” were alive and well at TW.
wereare alive and well at FB, YT, Google…
The same “4AM Talking Points” Censoring
wasIS going on within Pravda News. Fox News, CBS, ABC, NBC, CNN, MSNBC…
Wish someone would ask Laura about the synchronized “4AM Talking Points” across Big Tech AND Pravda news platforms.
They were so eager for him to buy them….
As Steve reminded me earlier—there were Republicans involved too. Just because it was not a 50/50 endeavor does not mean that the Republican contributions—the total heavy in the minority—were insignificant.
Would love to see those R names.
Just to clarify, requests were honored from the Trump WH as well—BUT, CONTEXT DOES MATTER.
Would love to see those R names who were possibly siding with the Ds or even conducting their own assault on Trump/MAGA.
McCain’s spokes buddy, Miss Lindsey..
This is Matt Taibbi’s thread about the Twitter release. I inserted a space after the last slash because I didn’t want the whole thing to post here.
Someone made a more readable version:
Donald Trump Jr.:
Imagine the FOIA – Freedom Of Information Requests, soon to be dropped on the WH, DOJ, FIB, HLS…
Judicial Watch is going to have a field day. 🤣
Good grief, these commies look for anything to bitch about.
If Brucie didn’t want his butt ugly mug plastered all over the place, he would have confined his dress-up fetish to private places.
What’s supposed to be wrong with that?
Bruce makes an ugly elderly impersonator and they don’t want too many people to know it. Seriously, how many hot senior citizens are there? Not many and he ain’t one of ’em.
I’m not sure. I mean, he was a man who “transitioned” to what he considers a female. Maybe they just don’t want it to be brought to the forefront. I would think they’d be proud of his “accomplishment.”
He hasn’t produced any evidence of transition. No doctors’ names, no rehab facility invoices, and most of all no specific statement that certain body parts are no longer present.
He’s a common cross-dresser or drag queen. And certainly not worth the free publicity provided by this Texas bar.
All true. I suppose it depends on what the definition of “is” is. Does having fake breasts implanted count?
We don’t even know if that happened. And no, it doesn’t count because it is reversible.
Well, I was just going by the poster on the door.
It’s interesting that that’s reversible, but if a woman “transitions” by cutting hers off, that is permanent.
There are cosmetic things you can do to partially reverse a mastectomy, but it won’t be actual breast tissue. If done for health reasons (e.g. breast cancer), care is taken to secure the “underpinnings”; by contrast, in trans “top” surgery, the objective is to obliterate the “underpinnings”. In the first case, prosthetic implants may be blended-in.
He’s a dude!
Next someone is gonna imply, Bruce could have a period, get pregnant, have a baby and nurse the infant.
STOP! I CAN’T BREATHE! 😂 😜
Bruce is still a guy. Can’t change that. A fucked up in the head guy, but a guy.
Whatever publicity Bruce gets out of the pictures, IMO, is folks laughing at Bruce’s ignorance. I’m good with it.
Who knows? It may be Bruce’s ambition to join the library circuit. It is not a lucrative league yet but circumstances and cultural fads change. One TV contract could change everything. I realized after learning about Professional Corn Hole and Ax Throwing that America has an appetite for just about everything.
You have educated me to the infinity of possibilities in this area.
wasIS a man…
My understanding is there are boys and girls.
All that other stuff, including Bruce Jenner, transition BS, IS make believe, woke BS.
Check this out. Intersectionality!
That made me laugh bigly! We got our own intersectionality now!
WE HIP! 😜
Does that involve traffic at intersections and and traffic lights ..
This Twitter Nuke and the lack of sleep has me LOLing at everything this morning!
Now THAT SHIT IS FUNNY!!! 😂 😂 😂
Marjorie Taylor Greene:
This Twittergate laptop stuff is just the beginning.
There is a thread by Sundance that Musk may now be aware of. Basically, Twitter employees were setting people up for the Feds on Twitter.
And remember what happened to TRUMP on January Sixth. No way that wasn’t coordinated. So what does that mean? If they don’t find what I think they’re going to find at Twitter, it means that the information was SCRUBBED before Elon took over.
Yeah. Things are going to get good. Start here……
I hope it wasn’t scrubbed! This needs to come out, with names attached.
Yes. I will bet that SD has enough to start legal proceedings.
I will be disappointed if he doesn’t.
Beside which, if he doesn’t fight back, he’s basically rolling over and telling these dirty actors it’s open season to attack him.
Do not be surprised if any minute now Trump drops just one single tweet:
“My fellow Americans, the Storm is upon us…….”
For him to tweet at all would be huge. For it to be that one would be YUGE!
A couple of weeks before the 2020 election, Trump’s WH press secretary and the Trump campaign team were locked out of Twitter.
Oh, yeah. There is going to be a LOT of “hair on fire” in D-VILLE.
I sure as HELL HOPE GANNET GOES BELLY UP!!! They are NASTY —
Personal experience with one of the Gannet’s — [As a kid I was an eyewitness to theft and bribery now the person is a State Attorney General 🤔 ] and also the personal experience of my roommate with the corporation. Enticed to leave her permanent job to work as a short term employee and then ‘Let go’ They wanted better workers than they could get from somewhere like Kelly temps so they offered permanent employees better pay and then fired everyone after about a month.
She lost her apartment so I had her move in with me.
Elon on Twittergate……
‘Splodey heads all over the place! What a night!
I can’t isolate this tweet, but Posobiec went to Mar-a-Lago tonight.
Jack Posobiec 🇺🇸
It’s gonna get huge.
Jack Posobiec 🇺🇸
Expose them all — intel community, 3-letters, Congresscritters, Twitter employees, foreign influences, JB White House influences, etc.
Slow it down guy! I can only absorb so much in a 24hr day!
Covid files, including Covid Injections.
Ukraine Russia files.
I got two bans for 10 days in twitter for covid disinformation. And I am a nobody. It will take years to dig through.
Screw the ‘Red Wave’…..
You can run but you cannot hide—here comes the Ultra-MAGA Wave biioootches!
RUCK THE FAGIME
Sounds like the laxatives have had a chance to take their effect because these people are crapping themselves in force.
Daily, Shaggy wins, “Bullshit Bingo”.
As does Kirby.
I really can’t listen to the rude being with the Shirley temple hair talk, it’s like accidentally stepping into a steaming pile of shit. Barfy, smelly, odious, rude, haughty, foul tempered punk ..
That’s all I can come up with atm …
Oh wait …
… Homer Simpson huge burrrrp
….and plenty of time to let this all play out before 2024.
Timing is everything.
And again Wolf nails it!
