Southern California Covered In 6 Feet Of Global Warming
ANAHEIM, CA — The Southland was turned upside down this week as an unexpected weather pattern left the region blanketed by what experts were only able to call “massive amounts of Global Warming.” Residents were told to remain indoors to avoid making direct contact with the Global Warming.
“Our world has officially ended,” said California resident Luis Garcia. “We’ve been hearing about Global Warming for years now, but it has now fallen upon us and brought destruction with it.” Though the final numbers were not yet reported, it is feared that perhaps dozens of people have been inconvenienced by this new outbreak of Global Warming.
Thank you, DePat, for a scrumptious Thursday thread.

Diversity advocates have abandoned poor & minority children and focus on virtue signaling to their peers
I am more heartbroken about the poor child who won’t graduate high school than a twitter list
. . . The reason the COVID-19 response broke my heart is that I know that these children will be further left behind. They will live shorter and broken lives because our experts were too stupid to know that cutting children’s safety net is far worse than the virus.
Ultimately, all kids got COVID anyway. Most got it before they were vaccinated, but poor & minority kids were also dealt a blow to their lives. School closure also did not slow community spread. It was a total blunder. The blame rests with us— a lot on Fauci & other misguided experts— but on all of us who stood by and did nothing.
. . . Recently, I saw yet another online prostration that reminded me why conservatives hate liberals. It’s because we care more about optics, our image than actually tackling the problem. (PS that’s why I can admit, as a liberal progressive, that Ron DeSantis did more for children during COVID than Gavin Newsom, who failed kids— except his own— who went to in person private school).
. . . What is wrong with us?
In a forthcoming publication, I will strengthen this case, and show a pervasive pattern of medicine’s relative indifference to the plight of poor, minority children in America, and obsession with the plight of faculty members in the academy. (Paper under review), but for now let me just remind my fellow progressives that we are failing.
We are policing things that don’t matter— twitter lists posted by trainees— and ignoring things that do matter—the unsafe living conditions, poor pre-K education, and limited nutrition programs for young children. Early life course interventions matter more than a trainee who decides to recommend others to follow on twitter.
If you want to argue that this is not an either-or, we can work on both projects. First, stay tuned for our paper, and second, time is limited. Every hour of outrage about a twitter list, is less time spent on young kids. And worse: having a brain that operates so poorly that it cannot make sense of data on masking, on school closure, and thinks this kid should apologize for a random list that a handful people read— is a liability. It threatens us going forward on all issues.
It does not escape my attention that medicine drifts further from science and reasoning, and is sucked into the gravitation pull of empty virtue signaling. We pushed masks because it is a symbol— not because the evidence is good. They failed by any convention measure. Boosting children— who don’t need boosters— and vaccinating kids who had covid— who don’t need vaccines— is another example of virtue signaling over a sober analysis of data. (PS many European nations have entirely abandoned vaccinating anyone <50).
A loud contingent pushes these views to signal to their colleagues that they are the “virtuous” people. Their favorite pastime is scolding each other for not being virtuous enough. Yes, this son of immigrants’ trainee’s list was 64% minority, but it was only 32% women. Let’s spend the day discussing that rather than the catastrophic blow we delivered to children in America— the single greatest discriminatory act in 25 years.
This will destroy us
The end of progressivism is when we all sit around in our mansions sipping wine and lamenting how our colleagues aren’t pure enough, and how our promotions are unfair because the only scholarship the university values is peer reviewed and not tweets— while poor children have their futures robbed of them, and we do nothing to heal that process. This behavior is sad. It isn’t liberal. It is self-destructive.
Many people in society have failed poor minority children, but the greatest failure is the incompetent progressive who pays lip service to actually caring.
Lip service = ass kissing.
They can all beg God for forgiveness ’cause I ain’t got any.
Virtue signaling and obfuscation.

Thanks, DPat for consistently excellent links & tweets … but especially your editorial comments 😄😄
That presentation of “Lord Jesus, Think on Me” is both beautiful and grounding. The stillness of the clouds and the movement of the waves provide such an effective backdrop.
This is a stupid argument on so many levels. Is he saying that everyone should carry wheelguns? Pump shotguns? Bolt-action sniper rifles?
He does say “I need them”. I imagine we would have quite a polite society if more people carried some form of projectile self-defense mechanism.
Heinlein called it: “an armed society is a polite society.”
I ran into an exhibitor at a gun show one time, and he commented that it was weird how everyone was so pleasant and accommodating there — he got more backtalk and stress going to the supermarket. So I whipped out the Heinlein quote, which made him go, “hmmmmm……”
The reason everyone was pleasant and polite is because they were around others who shared their same culture — probably in many ways, but certainly gun culture.
They have a common interest, and it’s fun to be around other people who like the same things we do.
It’s about the easiest environment in the world to make friends almost instantaneously, because you already know you have at least one big thing in common 👍
He doesn’t have the first clue what he’s saying.
He also clearly demonstrates that he doesn’t grasp the concept or purpose of the 2nd Amendment.
Which means he’s a government lover, which is to say, ignorant of even recent human history, much less all the rest of human history.
The thing is, he says he “carried semi-automatic weapons”…..but clearly doesn’t understand them. Were they in boxes? Did he ever do enough range time to be certified competent?
Yeah, it makes no sense.
First, if he’s speaking of rifles, he better have been carrying a fully automatic weapon in the military.
If he is talking about a semi-automatic pistol, then you need it for the exact same reason as you would need a revolver, and there is practically no difference in stopping power between a revolver and a pistol of the same caliber.
So no matter what he was talking about it, it doesn’t make any sense.
But the honest answer to the question “what do you need them for” is:
First: to overthrow a tyrannical government, which the Declaration of Independence says is not only the Right of the American People, but it is their duty. That means it’s Kenny Akers’ duty too, if he claims to be an American.
Second: self defense
Third: everything else
Tench Coxe said: “Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birth-right of an American…
…The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.”
George Mason settled the question of militia by asking and answering: “Who are the militia? They consist of the whole people, except a few public officers.”

Noah Webster said, “The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword, because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops.”
“And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms… The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” — Thomas Jefferson
Writing in the Federalist Paper No.46, James Madison said, “The Constitution preserves the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation … (where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.”
In Federalist Paper No. 28, Alexander Hamilton said, “If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is no recourse left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all forms of positive government.”
Richard Henry Lee said, “To preserve liberty it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them.”
Joseph Story (Supreme Court Justice) said: “The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of a Republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers…” – excerpt from ‘Commentaries on the Constitution’ (1833).
“This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing Government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it.
I cannot be ignorant of the fact that many worthy and patriotic citizens are desirous of having the National Constitution amended. While I make no recommendation of amendments, I fully recognize the rightful authority of the people over the whole subject, to be exercised in either of the modes prescribed in the instrument itself; and I should, under existing circumstances, favor rather than oppose a fair opportunity being afforded the people to act upon it.”
— Abraham Lincoln, inaugural address, March 4, 1861
Declaration of Independence:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”
“But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
Definition of Unalienable
1: impossible to take away or give up
• unalienable rights
It’s even more basic than that. The colonists had declared independence and gave many reasons to do so on July 4, 1776. They then took on the world’s greatest Empire at the time, using only their own arms (including, it should be noted, privately-owned cannon) and made it stick by 1781.
How would it make any sense whatsoever that the Constitution of 1789 would disarm these citizens, in whole or in part — especially considering that perfidious Albion would attempt a “do-over” in 1812?
The Bill of Rights were meant to clarify the Constitution, not extend it — there was significant debate as to whether they were necessary at all. Nevertheless, they were enacted in 1791 — ten years after citizens forced the British to yield. How stupid would the Founding Fathers have to be to say, “that’s all right then, we haven’t had to use ’em in 10 years, let’s give ’em up”?
And note it is ARMS not guns not rifles, not piastols ARMS!
Collaborative International Dictionary of English.
Arm Definition & Meaning | Britannica Dictionary
Note that it is ONLY when speaking of the 2nd Amendment they qualify the world arms to mean firearms. However the Constitution and bill of Rights did not use that qualification!
And yes private citizens had cannons at the time.
Were those cannons used to hunt? [asking for an idiot]
If you lived in a situation where you might be attacked by a mob, cannons were very handy to have around. Mind you, this mob might be displaced aboriginal populations, populations of the urban unemployed, would-be socialists desiring to seize the means of production from you, or anyone else.
It lets them know that you are prepared to kill and/or wound large numbers at each volley. Sort of putting up a large “FAFO” billboard.
They purposely chose the word ‘arms’, not guns.
Guns might be surpassed by a superior weapon at some point, so ‘arms’ covers the category of ‘weapons’ without limiting it to ‘guns’.
“YOU CAN’T HUG YOUR CHILDREN WITH NUCLEAR ARMS !”
(Hell, it’s hard enough to hug them with SMALL ARMS !)
Be glad you’re not a T-Rex. 😅
excellent! Thank you!
I carried that list in my wallet for years. Only had occasion to use it once (so far).
Destroyed an anti-gun snowflake with it, who claimed the Founding Fathers never intended for Americans to have guns.
It was hard to contain my smile, as I reached for my wallet… 😂
Maybe I’m reading into it, but I took it as an argument for people being armed with whatever weapon(s) they choose and that protection from government zombies is one reason for being armed.
My take also.
Unfortunately, Feds ARE infringing on our Rights.
Protection from government zombies (tyrannical government) is the primary reason. Because without that reason, no other reason matters.
And it is generic on purpose, so the government cannot have a weapon so superior that it changes the dynamic of the whole people being armed to be a check against government tyranny.
So if handheld Star Trek phasers become available, the gov’t can’t claim “Oh, you can’t have those, because the 2nd Amendment only guarantees your right to a gun!”.
The 2nd Amendment guarantees our right to “ARMS”, and a Star Trek handheld phaser most definitely qualifies as ‘ARMS’.
I don’t know this person and can’t vouch for this, so take it for what it’s worth.
“Dr. @MartyMakary: Public Health Officials Are Proposing Annual mRNA Vaccinations for All People”
If Trump does not get elected we will have a cabal ruling us demanding that everyone gets the jab otherwise you cannot shop travel or be under other people. I know it sounds extreme but the cabal showed us the future a year ago.
“If Trump does not get elected we will have a cabal ruling us demanding that everyone gets the jab otherwise you cannot shop travel or be under other people.”
No doubt they would attempt exactly that.
And they will fail.
Because I won’t do it, and neither will anyone else here, and neither will a significant percentage (hopefully a majority) of the American People.
But even if every other person in the country submitted, I still can’t, so I won’t.
That’s ground zero. The starting point. The shot is a death sentence, and there is no benefit or privilege TPTB can offer that is sufficient to exchange my life for death.
It doesn’t even make any sense.
Gov’t: “Here’s this great widget, all you have to do is take this poison (which will kill you) to get it.”
Substitute literally anything for ‘widget’ and the answer is always “No, not now, not ever.”
It removes any hesitation or doubt.
And I know things 😂
Things like… the gov’t has no right to restrict my freedom of travel, or make my freedom of travel conditional upon acceptance of anything.
Same goes for shopping or anything else.
They can threaten it, they can attempt to coerce, and as we saw during covidiocy, lots of people went along with it.
But lots of people didn’t, too.
Now that they have tipped their hand, and now that everyone has lived through their totalitarian fascism, and now everyone has seen they were WRONG — both in their so-called ‘facts’ and their lawless tyranny — there will be a lot more people who say “NO!” the next time they try it.
I will be saying “NO!” every time they try it, any time they try it.
Not because I’m brave, but because consent is not an option.
When what the gov’t ‘offers’ is ‘death’, what kind of ‘offer’ is that? 😂
If one understands the ‘offer’, it’s not possible to accept it. It’s an offer for suicide.
And unless the gov’t can guarantee access to “shop, travel”, etc. in the afterlife, then whatever they’re promising in exchange for the jab is FRAUD, because we won’t be ALIVE to enjoy it.
So it’s just nonsense.
It’s a hard pass, with lots of mockery and laughter to help make the point 😁
“Not because I’m brave, but because consent is not an option.”
That is a PERFECT sentence.
Well you don’t have to rub it in… I mean, you never know, I could be brave… a little… sometimes… if it was really necessary 😂
I was talking about ME! Lol, for all I know, you’re a retired Navy Seal or something!
Well, you don’t have to insinuate that I’m over the hill… I mean, you never know, I could be an active Navy Seal… just don’t go betting the farm on it… 🤣

Alas, I could never, ever, ever qualify to be a Navy Seal….although if they ever have try-outs for Navy Walrus, I might consider it….

As long as we understand the Bidenese are allowing this to happen to gin up the angst against China and the CCP.

A great distraction for them likely coming with a pending trade war that will result, we can expect the economic devastation to hit strongest among the middle class.

GREAT Life lesson here.
Thanks, Scott for bringing it.
I love it! Thanks for posting it. I just played it for my 15-year-old granddaughter.
You must be a Very Young grandma! My oldest grandchild is 8 months & my youngest is due to be born next month! Well I didn’t actually have any kids until a few months before I turned 30 🙂
I am 58. Not so young!
Well I just turned 59 last month 🙂
Aha. Well, I did have my first when I was twenty. Pretty young.
Several years back, on my birthday, I got a phone call from my mom. She said, “so, Cooth, you’re now twenty-two….”
I replied, “yep, that’s right.”
She continued, “do you know what I was doing when I was twenty-two?”
Now, my mom has done a lot of things over the years — racking up a couple of graduate degrees, moving from place to place in California, working a variety of jobs….so I go, “hmmm….not exactly sure here….”
And she said, “I had you.” Then the phone clicked and I got dial tone.
Lol! I like your Mom!
& My first was a couple months before I hit 30. I’m guessing you might have been done by that age. All 4 of my kids are in their 20’s & my oldest turns 30 near the end of this year. How many do you have, if you don’t mind sharing?
I have three. I had my last when I was 31.
Wow so yours were pretty spread out. I had 4 in 4 1/4 years, but twins were in the middle 🙂
Jeez. Yeah, mine were pretty far apart.
so how many grandkids do you have? Our granddaughter will be about 10 months old when our daughter’s baby comes next month so we’re pretty new to the grandparenting gig 🙂
Two so far. Girl, age 15, boy, age 12.
LOL My husband is Still the biggest Teenager in any room he shows up in 😉
I once had a mail-carrier who was a grandmother at 32.
OMG! That’s nuts.
The apple didn’t fall far from the tree.
I was just informed that a friend from Ace’s, Westminster Dog Show, has passed away. She was a fun and funny person and I am sorry to hear.
so sorry for your loss, may the Lord provide His comfort for all who are grieving
I’m sorry for the loss of this lady. May she rest in peace. 🙏
I’m sorry for your loss … 😔🤚🥀
Me too, Coothie.
May she rest in eternal Peace under the Wings of the Almighty God, and may her family and friends find comfort.
I’m sorry for your loss. That’s sad.

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.

Complete unedited interview of Dowd by Tucker Carlson.
He prayed to God to be of service and was answered when Dr Malone went to Hawaii and he got a chance to talk to him.
Ed Dowd needs a crash course in the globalist Depop agenda. It’s real, there are tons of facts to support such, and it’s happening. Build Back Better is for them (the one in fourteen) not us.
Reading the article at the link above, will happen later today.
With that stated, I’d bet Ed Dowd knows, DePop is in play.
When talking to normies you have to be careful NOT TO SCARE THE SHEEP. So you feed them ONE piece of data at a time and hope they can digest it.
We here are much further along because we already know there are nasty satanic psychopaths in control of much of the world. Data that fits that working hypothesis is not a real shock to us.
The problem with normies is they do not want to admit they made a mistake of judgement or that they not know something. To me that is a character flaw because it takes humility and grace to admit these things about one self.
Very true. You have to have good self esteem and also be humble to admit you are incorrect.
When you are dealing with screaming karens who smugly think their being correct gave them license to bully others, I doubt they would admit they were wrong even on their deathbeds.
Some people see admitting to be wrong is a failure. The problem is it is through failure we learn but in our culture giving everyone a trophy to not let kids see failure they do not know how to handle it.

I can’t bring myself to post this directly.
However I can post this directly (I archived it)
Human trafficking – aka slavery – is more prevalent today than in any other era.
Very true and Saudi Arabia did not abolish slavery until the 1970s.
A Saudi Princess actually had a slave with her when she came to the USA for a visit! (California dropped the charges)
It’s not an accepted fact, but it’s true. There were far more Irish slaves than Africans in the colonies, and no, they were not all indentured servants.
The End of the English Major
Well, well, well, Looks like high school students are WAKING UP and deciding to major in courses that can EARN THEM MONEY!
When I went to collage I minored in education, figuring I could teach Chemistry if all else failed. We had one class were ALL of that years education majors were gathered in a large auditorium. We were seated by major.
500+ English majors
700+ History majors
~50 biology majors
~10 math majors
7 Chemistry majors
2 physics majors…..
One of my childhood friends was a history major. He ended up as an insurance salesman, English majors ended up as secretaries….
And that was BEFORE they flooded the job market with student loan affirmative action types.
Having a bachelors in African transgender dance gets you a job asking “Do you want fries with that?’ And the younger generation is learning that from older sibs and friends.
I switched from biology to chemistry because a friend, 4 years my senior, told me about how flooded the job market was with bio majors.
I got a BS in Education with a major in English and a minor in Mass Comm. I ended up as a Tech Writer/Editor. It is a perfect fit for me. I am fascinated by tech, have a glass-half-full attitude toward explaining complex subjects, and always loved reading and writing. Tech has opened up a lot of opportunity for writers and graphic artists. I would only suggest a degree in anything if you enjoy the subject matter and would miss it if it was no longer part of your day. Tech keeps me humble and always learning new things. I remember digging through large display boxes of old tech docs at Weird Stuff Warehouse to see if there were spare copies of books I’d written. Usually, I only get one printed copy of the earlier docs and my docs since 2004 are at a higher level so it is rare I get to share.
As I check the current market to pick the next thing I want to write about, I notice the highest-paying contracts for tech writers are ones in the medical field. Sometimes as much as $40k higher and there are many options. I imagine that was not true when you were forming your career path. Hard to predict where we will be in 20 years. I hope we will have today’s problems resolved in humanity’s favor.
Hubby is a tech writer but his degree is in physics. The people who were in his department (computer company) generally had PhDs in tech fields. In other words they could write and they were proficient in science. One did have a PhD in English but she was also technically competent.
They had gotten those Phds when you didn’t have a computer to help. (He is 80)
When I got my Master’s (Christian Counseling) in the 80’s many of my grad school classmates were married men who had their wives type up their papers on word processers. I had never used a computer at that time so was typing my papers on likely the earliest version of an electric typewriter invented (had to return the carriage manually). Since my parents had bought this gem used it also was missing the “e” key, only the most used letter in the English language! My typed papers looked pretty strange with Every “e” handwritten in & whiteout & carets &/or arrows for corrections. Amazingly for that 2 year MA program I got all A’s & just one B. My papers Looked atrocious, but I guess the content was pretty good 🙂
fascinating journey–thanks for sharing!

I got this link from Lucianne. I remember Naomi Wolf as the one who suggested Earth tones to Gore.
I do not endorse every aspect of her very thoughtful essay, but definitely think she is discussing an important aspect of present reality. As weird and disturbing as life has been trending for many decades now, the bizarre intensity of the last few years is off the charts:
Thanks for this Tonawanda. Naomi has been very active in analyzing problems with the jabs. I agree about the “bizarre intensity” and keep coming back to the idea that we are going to need more insane asylums.
Naomi often appears on Warroom with Bannon.
I can hardly believe she is the same person who worked with Gore.
I’ve come to admire her greatly.
Shows she is a strong character and ethical compass. She also has humility to see and admit the how wrong the left is.
Naomi has an open mind, integrity, intelligence, critical thinking skills, educated and can NOT be intimidated.
She’s not the same person, any more than you or me are the same as we were in high school. We are grateful she grew in the proper direction.
Texas Celebrates Independence Day
By Jonathan Richie – Senior Staff Writer
Mar 2, 2023
The Lone Star State declared its independence from Mexico on this day in 1836, after years of fruitless attempts to reconcile conflicts with the government of Antonio López de Santa Anna.
The decision to declare independence came as General Santa Anna besieged the Texas battalion at the Alamo. Such a step was not taken lightly, however, and came after years of struggles with the Mexican government.
The direct cause of the war occurred in 1835, when Santa Anna usurped Mexico’s 1824 constitution, which guaranteed certain rights, liberties, and privileges. Prior to this, Texans had petitioned for a redress of other grievances for years, holding conventions in 1832 and 1833.
Following the abrogation of the constitution, the conflict became inevitable. In October 1835, Texans defended the now-famous “Come and Take it” cannon against confiscation by Mexican military authorities in the Battle of Gonzales.
Other states within Mexico also fought against Santa Anna’s regime, including a failed rebellion in Zacatecas, the creation of a temporary independent state in the Yucatán, and open resistance in Monclova.
On November 7, 1835, Texas sent an explanatory declaration to the Mexican government justifying its armed resistance to the new regime. It claimed that Santa Anna “and other military chieftains, have, by force of arms, overthrown the federal institutions of Mexico.”
Therefore, “the good people of Texas, availing themselves of their natural rights … have taken up arms in defense of their rights and liberties.”
This November document added that “they hold it to be their right during the disorganization of the federal system, and the reign of despotism, to withdraw from the union, to establish an independent government … but that they will continue faithful to the Mexican government so long as that nation is governed by the constitution.”
. . . MORE . . .
Happy Independence Day, Texas!
I like that.
In Texas, they don’t need wheels or any support structure for their cannons.
They just hold it.

The U.S. has announced a weapons package to Ukraine which includes the JDAM bomb system. The JDAM system is basically an adaptation fitted to older style Vietnam-era Mark 80 series ‘dumb bombs’ (no guidance) which turns them into guided bombs.
There are so many wrong-headed generalizations and jumps to conclusions about these upcoming weapons systems. Let’s explore what this actually means for Russia, and what real consequences can be expected, point by point.
That site has got another article up now about the terrorist attack on the RF. Ukraine has always done terrorism but tried to justify it previously, this latest instance being blatant shows sign of panic, and or trying to irritate the RF into making a rash move.
Interestingly it mentions the Joker, and I would take that as a verification that the Joker is genuine. I could never make up my mind about the posts from Joker.
And on that note here’s a couple of his posts…
“Interesting news came from my spies from the SBU. The Ukrainian soldiers who are now in Bakhmut, against the background of total losses, made the right choice and made a collective decision not to obey Zelensky’s will and not to die. It turned out to be an armed rebellion, but life is more expensive and right now they are thinking how to escape from the closing cauldron. Zelensky stomps his feet and demands from Zaluzhny to stop the attempt of rebellion and to stop disobedience. But Zaluzhny himself understands that in that situation they cannot cope with Wagner. I think that tomorrow we will have pleasant news. And the clown Zelensky, as usual, will say that it was his decision, there was no mutiny and flight, but there was a planned retreat under his sensitive paternal guidance. Ah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha…”
“This morning in the center of Bakhmut, the fighters of the Wagner PMCs performed the “Tango of Death” for the fools who stood in their way. To make it clear to everyone, according to Ukrainian documents, the AFU outnumber the Wagner PMCs in this sector of the front by at least 3 times. But the guys from Wagner don’t care at all.
The main thing is that the meaning of the message reaches our common enemies – everything will burn! Ah-ha-ha-ha-ha…”
Yes, Andrei’s blog has a lot of info on this … I didn’t post bec there doesn’t seem much interest in geopolitics… if you go here you will also fin a statement from Rus MoD …
at the top of comments thread, on right side you will find an option for oldest or newest go to oldest for news on attack

“US is giving Ukraine a Long-Range GPS-Guided Bomb that can Hit Targets Miles Away.”
We could use some of those.
Why don’t they give us some of those?
I especially like the part about how it can hit targets miles away. At least one mile away is good, two is better. It’s always good practice to have bombs go off somewhere that you’re not 👍

Excellent… that means I did it right! 😁

Woody Harrelson Doubles Down, Slams COVID Mandates: US Is “Not A Free Country”
Following a 30 second bit on SNL where he branded big pharma as a ‘cartel’ forcing it’s drugs on people with government consent, actor Woody Harrelson has further spoken out against COVID mandates.
In an interview with the New York Times, Harrelson warned that America is no longer a free country, branding COVID protocols as “rather absurd.”
^^^ Great stuff.
Woody on Tucker for a couple minutes would be great also.
Good news out of Colorado
Colorado Mom Fights Back Against Government Tyrants Who Tried to Kidnap Her 2-Year-Old Son – Wins $3 Million Lawsuit
Danielle Jurinsky, an Aurora city councilwoman, spoke out on a radio program and criticized the city’s chief of police, Vanessa Wilson, back in January of 2022.
The next day, police chief Wilson’s lover, a child welfare social worker, made an anonymous call to Child Protective Services (CPS) falsely accusing Danielle Jurinsky of sexually molesting her 2-year-old son. When CPS opened a case against Jurinsky, the social worker who made the anonymous call, Robin Niceta, requested that she be given the case.
Her intent was to apparently take permanent custody of Danielle Jurinsky’s two-year-old son.
But Danielle Jurinsky was not intimidated, and as she later stated: “You picked a fight with the wrong person!”
Jurinsky found out that it was Robin Niceta who made the call, and called her out publicly, which resulted in Niceta resigning from her position. She was later arrested on criminal felony charges, which allowed the local media to report on the story bringing even more pressure to the story.
Being in the public spotlight now, other families came forward to report that Robin Niceta had taken similar actions against them. In fact, one of Niceta’s reported MOs was to approach a mother under investigation with sexual advancements, and if the mother resisted, she ended up losing her children.
So what at first appeared to be just a political retaliation story soon blew up to a systemic problem within the county child welfare department, and soon a local attorney had over 40 families making complaints in what has now become a class action lawsuit.
. . . Jurinsky did not stop there, however. While waiting for the criminal trial to begin, which is scheduled for later this year (2023), she filed a $1 million defamation lawsuit against Niceta, and a few weeks ago a judge ruled in her favor, awarding her $3 million in damages.
. . . MORE . . . including how to fight back
Also it is happening in Florida.
Has Florida Become the Top State in the U.S. for Medical Kidnapping and Child Trafficking?
As we have reported numerous times over the years, the #1 source for child trafficking in the United States is the corrupt child welfare program that funds foster care and adoptions in the U.S. You can learn more about this corrupt system of child trafficking that imperils all of the nation’s children every day on our Medical Kidnapping website.
Thanks to some good local reporting in Florida, many families who have had their children taken away from them illegally by the State of Florida are fighting back and suing the State of Florida, naming Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, Secretary of the Florida Department of Children and Families Shevaun Harris, Executive Director of the Florida Department of Health Dr. Joseph Ladapo, Bureau Chief of the Florida Department of Health Child Protection Team Patricia Armstrong, and Executive Director of the Florida Guardian ad Litem Program Attorney Dennis Moore as defendants in the case. (Source.)
In spite of this lawsuit and the exposure by some in the Florida media of widespread corruption in the Florida child welfare system, Governor DeSantis’s wife is recruiting more investigators to go on the state payroll to look for more children to put into the system, and they are recruiting these investigators from military veterans and former law enforcement….
First Lady Casey DeSantis also announced recently that the State of Florida was giving away free government money to Foster and Adoptive homes who were taking care of other people’s children to “fight inflation.”…
But if you’re a family struggling with your own biological children and not part of the child welfare system, you don’t qualify.
How is this not “child trafficking,” when biological families who are struggling get no support from the State, but those taking care of other families’ children who have been taken away by the State, often illegally, get “free money?”
According to Business Insider, Governor DeSantis took this money from COVID-19 relief funds…
Taking children away from parents is so communist and Nazi. When parents are poor they should be allowed to keep their children unless their is abuse or drugs in the home. Yes parents should get financial help if need to take care of the kids until parents get back on their feet or get a subsidy to take care of the children. . I always say this country is not very child friendly. Housing, clothing and food and loving parents is essential for a child to grow up .
“…. this country is not very child friendly. “
I saw it change from the 1960s where the church and community took care of it’s own, to LBJ’s ‘Great Society’ where women were PAID to be unwed mothers and the black families were destroyed.
As I said in my recent articles, the 1970s were the inflection point where the Eugenists got the crisis they wanted to convince world leaders to climb on board the population control/depopulation wagon.

In May, the Washington Post reported Ukraine is infamous for black market weapon sales. “The US government is well aware of the country’s challenges with weapons proliferation, though it has been vague in describing the precautions it’s taking,” the outlet wrote.
Yet … Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Colin Kahl claimed Moscow was capturing American weapons and selling them on the black market. “Our assessment is if some of these systems have been diverted it’s by Russians who have captured things on the battlefield, which always happens,” he said.
And the headline reads ‘Pentagon Admits Russia Captured American Weapons In Ukraine
When truth is DoD is providing weapons to NAZIs – against US LAW.
Rep Gaetz is questioning DoD rep, but disinformation is what is received by American public.
See how that works? And… nothing will be done about the gov’t supporting NAZI’s …
Rather sure the US sells or gives away captured Russian weapons.
Must be OK for Russia to sell captured US weapons.
“Rather sure the US sells or gives away captured Russian weapons.”
Cool, Americans should get first dibs.
How do I get on the list for free Russian weapons?
So, Sen. John Fetterman is “still in the hospital and undergoing treatment for major depression.”
Meanwhile, he is (or, was) “well and competent” enough to CO-SPONSOR this new bill in the Senate about railway safety? He supposedly “co-sponsored” this bill along with Sens. Hawley, Vance, Casey, and Rubio. (per Sen. Josh Hawley’s office)
“Railway Safety Act of 2023”
There’s NO Senate bill number at the top of the document.
There’s NO date which lists where the bill is “referred to the Committee” on the document.
Was this bill written up BEFORE Sen. Fetterman checked himself into Walter Reed?
Someone read it to Fetterman and asked him to nod his head?
Some dope, manually nodded Fetterman’s head up and down.
Blink once for yes.
