Joe Biden didn’t win. This is our Real President:
AND our beautiful REALFLOTUS.
This Stormwatch Monday Open Thread remains open – VERY OPEN – a place for everybody to post whatever they feel they would like to tell the White Hats, and the rest of the MAGA/KAG/KMAG world (with KMAG being a bit of both).
And yes, it’s Monday…again.
But we WILL get through it!!!
So shine your light for all to see (or feel, as appropriate)…..
Put on your dancing shoes…..
And prepare for the ride of your life!
WHEATIE – OUR WARRIOR ANGEL
Please forgive us, Wheatie, we did not know
That you had left us with armor in tow
We had no idea with what you dealt
We did not know the pain you felt
And now we can only imagine
With you what really did happen
Cause rarely did you complain
And/or share your personal pain
Of one thing we are most certain
You are flying high behind the curtain
Watching over us above the crowds
Our Warrior Angel above the clouds
Thank You, Wheatie, for caring for us
While you were here among the fuss
We miss you dear you have no idea
Since time began in the pangaea
With you there was no time
In your wisdom you would chime
To clarify and magnify
The what where how and why
We did not question when you left
We were not slightly bereft
But over time we wondered why
You did not at least stop by
Now we know where you have gone
With the break of this new dawn
We could be angry but are not
Tho with an arrow we’ve been shot
Rest peacefully Warrior Angel dear
Send us a sign that you are near
A butterfly a flower a kiss of rain
From your love do not refrain
God sends Angels to watch over us
And now we have an Angel Plus
A Warrior Angel of Magnificence
From today and forward hence
- No food fights.
- No running with scissors.
- If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone.
Boilerplate, more or less, but worth reading again and again, if only for the minor changes, and to stay out of moderation.
MINOR CHANGE NUMBER 1
Give them nothing.
Play smart. Every minute, the COUPISTS who stole the election – who lied – who deserve to be at the business end of the very same laws they are using so wrongly against the January Sixth defendants – are trying to set you up. Don’t be a chump. Turn everything back against THEM. Every day, every hour, every minute, every second.
LIKE SUNDANCE DID HERE.
Occam’s Razor – Fed Entrapment
YOU are responsible for your own comments, if they come knocking. YOUR choice. Just remember this…..
OTHER THAN THAT…….
The bottom line is Free Speech. Theories and ideas you don’t agree with must be WELCOME here, and you must be part of that welcoming. But you do NOT need to be part of any agreement.
Bottom line – respect other people’s FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS.
Our only additional requirement is that you do so NICELY. Or at least try to make some effort in that direction.
SO….. [ENGAGE BOILERPLATE…..]
We must endeavor to persevere to love our frenemies – even here.
Those who cannot deal with this easy requirement will be forced to jump the hoops of moderation, so that specific comments impugning other posters and violating the minimal rules can be sorted out and tossed in the trash.
In Wheatie’s words, “We’re on the same side here so let’s not engage in friendly fire.”
That includes the life skill of just ignoring certain other posters.
We do have a site – The U Tree – where civility is not a requirement. Interestingly, people don’t really go there much. Nevertheless, if you find yourself in an “argument” that can’t really stay civil, please feel free to “take it to the U Tree”. The U Tree is also a good place to report any technical difficulties, if you’re unable to report them here. Please post your comment there on one of Wolf’s posts, or in reply to one of Wolf’s comments, to make sure he sees it (though it may take a few hours).
We also have a backup site, called The Q Tree as well, which is really The Q Tree 579486807. You might call it “Second Tree”. The URL for that site is https://theqtree579486807.wordpress.com/. If this site (theqtree.com) ever goes down, please reassemble at the Second Tree.
If the Second Tree goes down, please go to The U Tree, or to our Gab Group, which is located at https://gab.com/groups/4178.
We also have some “old rules” and important guidelines, outlined here, in a very early post, on our first New Year’s Day, in 2019. The main point is not to make violent threats against people, which then have to be taken seriously by law enforcement, and which can be used as a PRETEXT by enemies of this site.
In the words of Wheatie, “Let’s not give the odious Internet Censors a reason to shut down this precious haven that Wolf has created for us.”
A Moment of Prayer
Our policy on extreme religious freedom on this site is discussed HERE. Please feel free to pray and praise God anytime and anywhere.
Thus, please pray for our real President, the one who actually won the election.
You may also pray for our nation, our world, and even our enemies.
In honor of dear Wheatie, we now present some music to soothe, inspire, invigorate, or relax.
FIRST – in “epic music”……
Now – remember my favorite country mash-up?
Well, the author did his own composition from the mashup. Enjoy!
And what the heck – YouTube suggested my last song again!
Call To Battle
Our beloved country is under Occupation by hostile forces.
Daily outrage and epic phuckery abound.
We can give in to despair…or we can be defiant and fight back in any way that we can.
And this is the best bust of the phony phed Patriot Front yet, as an Alinsky operation which even has globalist and Demmunist backing.
Joe Biden didn’t win.
And we will keep saying Joe Biden didn’t win until we get His Fraudulency out of our White House.

ENJOY THE SHOW
Have another great week!
This guy’s lookin’ good! Trump cabinet for sure!
He has been very impressive, and I hope he won’t do something disappointing.
Exactly. The LEFT has to fear and loathe the guy, because he very effectively NORMALIZES the entire Trump agenda.
I really like him and I hope, as These Truths does, he continues to ‘impress’
It is obvious after how he handled the Trump court case that HE IS NOT DUMB… Unlike DeSanctimonious.
I wonder if he is running to get Trump’s notice. Remember Ben Carson ran and was included in Trump’s Admin.
I hope Dr Ben is also included in Trump’s cabinet picks… AND THIS TIME GETS THE RECOGNITION HE DESERVES!
Florida is keeping the WOKE out of required Holocaust teaching in schools!
Even MORE great DeSantis moves.
Please note that I’m not pushing him for President, but DAMN – he just keeps getting the right things DONE.
Doing those things in a state, especially a state with a Republican legislature, is not terribly difficult. All one has to do is have the thought to do it. And I believe it is entirely possible that the powers that be are whispering “do this” in DeSantis’ ear to convince people he would be a great President.
But would Putin listen to him, fear him, respect him? Would the Saudis stage a sword dance to flatter and honor him? Would he fearlessly step across the border into North Korea, having first labeled the leader he walked in with “Little Rocket Man?” For me, I highly, highly doubt it.
The President of the United States is not a governor-type job. Our President must be respected and feared on the WORLD stage. When he isn’t, well, we end up where we are right now. Or in Afghanistan and Iraq. Or Vietnam. You know the drill. I just hope the rest of America does. Wind Sock Ron would be a disaster as President. He is just another weak Repuke failure waiting to happen at that level. He doesn’t have the balls for the job.
Yup. Trump has an enormous amount of international experience that DeSantis lacks. Plus he has 4 years of presidency. HUGE advantage.
Nonetheless, I think that governors like DeSantis are leading the way on HOW Republican governors need to govern! Good stuff.
Or in other words, DeSantis needs to stay where he is.
For now, YES!!!
If DeSantis needs to be anywhere else, I trust TRUMP to know where that is.
Unfortunately the very first thing Trump can legitimately be faulted for is poor personnel selection.
The question in my mind is whether that stemmed from having a poor selection to choose from, or not.
I think he was DENIED many of his best potential choices, by many means. And of those he chose, many were driven off by the left.
It’s a relentless war.
I agree. The things that were done to Dr Peter Navarro, would have driven off a lesser man.
Oh Yeah, the Shadow Government (Senior Exc Service) had the knives out not just for POTUS Trump but for ALL the honest patriot people he tried to bring in.
Sundance mentioned that resumes were intentionally lost.
I also remember Security Clearances were denied and POTUS Trump had to actually hand them out himself AND THE FAKE NEWS WENT NUTZ AS A RESULT.
It will be no less bad when Trump goes back in.
Until he FIRES THE BASTARDS!
I hope he sets up a lot of offices in the interior of Maine and Alaska.
Fort Wainwright sounds about right.
The first time he was given by the GOP not chosen by him. He was new in DC and had to rely on others. This time he is in charge.
Sure. That I get.
File this thread under “don’t let your children grow up to be insane self-mutilating trannies who attack abortion protesters while recovering from mutilation surgery”.
The “trans man” who attacked anti-abortion protesters along with Antifa radicals gets tossed back to the Antifa side by police (having snuck past police lines) and screams about recovering from surgery.
Mammas, don’t let your babies grow up to be trannies…
You have to be dumb as a box of rocks to attend athletic events — including vigorous protests — when you’re supposed to be recovering from surgery. Any kind of surgery.
Maybe if his stitches ripped he might gain a little wisdom.
Isn’t that person technically a she regardless of surgical mutilation?
We’ll leave that verification to you …
so why is our side playing fictional pronoun word games? “It’s Ma’am!!!” LOL
No it’s Loony Tunes…

Maybe the “dick” will fall off. It would probably be a blessing in the long run.
Is that a new word?
That’s what happens when you take out the va-va-voom…
It was new to my brain! I don’t recall ever seeing it anywhere else.
I thought about using “abwhores”, too, but two neologisms at a time, tends to decrease the effect of both – and it wasn’t an ideal place for Number Two. 😉
Kids have to be absolutely warned about this stuff. The devastation of transition is a reality that most have no idea they’re getting into.
My grand kids I hope are past the stage to be influenced. The youngest is 19.
I noticed the worse the culture get my kids return friendly loving kind 🙂
I am wondering if they are waking up just as so many younger people in their fifties are ? There is a change happening I can feel it.
The Illegals storming the border is waking up those with misdirected compassion. God is good 🙂
Yes, it is slow but I can FEEL the change and so can others. We are impatient but it takes time for the Sheeple to finally catch up with us.
It took a long time to get us where we are and it will not be fixed over night. I think it will be fixed just as slow as it crept up on us.
“My pronouns are thee, thine.” 😂
It’s supposed to be blatant, that’s a feature. It’s part of the humiliation ritual.
When the Left and normies pretend not to see it, it’s a whole other level of stupid.
They’re SUPPOSED to see it. They’re supposed to be ashamed and humiliated by it, but they’re too far gone to see it 😂
Kyle Becker is a journalist who used to be a producer and writer at Fox.
All some brave soul needs to do is dress up like one of these guys and slip into the group. They could then follow them all the way back to where they came from.
Maybe they could get In but could they Ever get Out, except in a pine box?
About time. Way overdue.
The Autists and even Matt Taibbi spotted them a mile away! 🤓
Full video of the explosion in Ukraine. Or at least “fuller”.
Huge. I can’t imagine brething that smoke, let alone the threat of radiation from uranium. I wonder how this will affect battle strategy.
If they lost all the DU stuff, then yeah – there is no hope of pushing back the Russians. Not that there ever was, but still – it should be more obvious to the bozos now.
Using depleted uranium for dumb weapons is a crime against the future anyway. There is SO MUCH ENERGY in it, just waiting to be unlocked. In the future, people will be cold and starving in various places, and just shaking their heads in disbelief that people were so foolish as to throw away perfectly good years of energy for measly gains in conventional warfare.
Wouldn’t you know it, all the checkstubs from the first year of US financial aid were kept in the same building. Damn shame it won’t be auditable now…..
Shades of 9/11
Wow, look at all of those American tax dollars.
It blowed up real good.
On the bright side, it didn’t kill any Russian-speaking former Ukrainians on behalf of Ukrainian Nazis and their Jazi bosses.
A boom with a view….
(and, softly playing in the background, “Always look at the bright side of life, da dum, da dum, da dum de dum de dum”)….
They’re using and doing everything they can to insure Stavros Satan Schwab’s ideal of “you vill have nothink and you vill like it”…..
Dershowits was beside himself on Saturday claiming Trump allowed in his hotel a Nazi to be a speaker. Later he had to recant and said ” the guy was kicked out of the hotel ”
I like to hear why he is not upset for our government to send billions into the Nazi run Ukraine?
It blowed up real good.
Well, YEA. It was designed to blow up. (Just not there.)
After the criminals took their share of the money 🤔
Best part of my Monday. Which has been superb. 🙂
Winds are blowing steadily towards the West. Towards Poland. 😮
Poland was helping Ukraine… Their gov’t was not innocent although the people certainly were.
Maybe it is time to take all these ‘Leaders’ and toss them one by one into a cage fight with Putin instead of killing innocrnt people.
There have been several stories printed recently and in the last few months about radiation levels going up in Poland for this that and the other thing. Obviously they figured something like this might happen and wished to disarm any panic before something happened. And now something has happened. Winds take any fall out from explosion site directly toward Warsaw.
I went looking for stories about fall out in Poland. Found none, but found several other stories about why no one should be alarmed about fall out from this that and the other thing.
The air borne dust is the major problem. Since plutonium is VERY HEAVY, which is why they were using it in the first pace, I am not sure how far the contamination will spread and in what concentration.
Prof. Zbigniew Jaworowski, former Chairman, Scientific Council of Central Laboratory for Radiological Protection, Warsaw, Poland He was the representative of Poland in the United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR), and in 1980 – 1982 was the chairman of the Committee. (17 October 1927 – 12 November 2011)
He looked for radiation from bomb testing in glaciers. So he might have been able to answer the question if he was still alive.

Regarding this tweet from the open:
So Fox is covering this. I don’t know if any other cable news outlets are. I’m wondering what Fox’s news philosophy is. Report just enough to keep conservatives tuning in?
I think that Sundance is right, that this is just chaff and countermeasures.
A Stunned Maria Bartiromo Discovers the Chaff and Countermeasures Committee
May 14, 2023 | Sundance | 271 Comments
They all make money on “outrage theater”.
I no longer believe in their stupid system at the federal government and national media levels. It’s a GAME.
Fight locally. Get on the local school boards. Get on city councils. Create a blog. Become a digger. Make memes. FIGHT. Because at the top, it’s all Roosterhead.
The criminals control DOJ. Real justice is over until DOJ is cleaned out and replaced.
Holding my nose and reading the article now. It starts with:
“Mrs. Maria Bartiromo is good at pretending, very good.”
What is that supposed to mean? Does SD know her personally? If not, how does he know she’s pretending? Has there been any evidence that she doesn’t hold the views she appears to believe in?
🙄 Like the last time he was going to Washington to expose and change some things? If he has some kind of influence, then I wish he would just wield it.
Yes, by SD himself. 😂
The investigations ARE part of the oversight. Exposing fraud, corruption, and criminality IS part of oversight. As for accountability, I would like for SD to list specifically what measures this particular committee can take to hold people accountable. Oh, the House Oversight Committee is just being USED to make accountability seem like the goal? Then list the measures that the rest of the Repubs in the House can take to force the AG or the DOJ to do their jobs. The House controls the purse strings, but I don’t think using that as leverage is going to force someone to indict, try, and convict the criminals. So exactly what would SD have the committee members do?
I do not believe for one second that Jim Comer, Jim Jordan, MTG, and Lauren Boebert are pretending to be accomplishing things in order to raise political funds.
I’d better stop there. I generally avoid SD because this happens almost every time I read over there.
He’s just pointing out the reality that pretty much all the House can do is investigations.
Nobody can force a corrupt DOJ to do anything, IMO.
They will investigate school moms as terrorists, but they won’t do anything but stall on the Biden crime family.
Yes, and his habit of stating the obvious as if he has some kind of insider knowledge that we lack, and as if we can’t see all that he says and more, is what makes me 🤪.
And in the process, he claims to know the motives of, and casts doubt upon the reputations of, people who are working hard to reveal things that would never otherwise come to light.
You and I are on the same paragraph, let alone the same page.
It is complete bullshit for anyone to claim to know someone else’s motives without direct knowledge.
I wouldn’t want to share a foxhole with sumdunce.
Right there with you,
Oof, boy howdy. He is NOT a team player.
AND THAT IS WHY WE HAVE THEQTREE.
Wolfie on the other hand is a team player and a great leader. 😍
I do not see wolf as team player I see him as like minded and great leader 😃
I am using “team player’ in that he allows the rest of us to actually write articles. That is NOT something Sundance or other will do.
I noticed that Sundance is the only author . I very seldom look at his forum only when someone here posts URL on article .
” He is NOT a team player.”
Those are famous words in Industry when people are not able to be controlled.
I personally do not want team players GOP uses that term also.
He is BLACK PILLING to make himself feel big when what we need is optimism for the future AND PLANS!
I was around for the Tea Party, but the Tea party had no real leadership, no real plans. Today I see something different. I see PLANS and LEADERSHIP lots and lots of plans .Lots and lots of leadership and better yet MOVEMENT.
Yes we have problems but you can not fix them until you see them. Look how far we have come! We NOW SEE THE PROBLEMS and more important so do a lot of normies.
Even a couple years ago, we might have thought the gov’t was behind censorship but NOW WE KNOW IT IS!
So the House does something, potentially meaningful…
Impeach biteMe, Hoe, Garland, Mayorkis, Idi Amin…
I truly don’t understand your consistent defense of SD, actually to the point of glorification of him … have you researched him? I did …
won’t post what I know because it would be judged an attack … but I don’t understand your loyalty to him.
I would appreciate you sharing your research. There are plenty here at the Q-Tree who have lost their awe of Sundance quite a while ago, especially with the banning of so many of us who became Q-Treepers subsequently.
What you’ve uncovered could help us better understand who/what Sundance is & aide in our analysis of his work, & I think the Q-Tree could handle any subsequent “controversy”.
… awe of Sundance …
Now that there is downright funny. 😂
LOL, I was feigning diplomacy but am seriously out of practice 😉
I won’t defend him, but I will read him. He’s nothing but another data point to be sifted, considered, and either accepted or rejected, to me.
Sometimes I agree with him, sometimes I don’t. Often he is full of shit. I don’t particularly like Ms. Bartiromo’s schtick, never have. I don’t trust media personalities. She seems as fake as most of them, to me.
well said! He’s a data point, often with decent content. I really don’t care about the emotional reactions others have to his style or background.
For me, it’s not an emotional reaction to his style. It’s a visceral objection to what I feel is manipulation as I read. Regarding the piece we’re talking about here, you couldn’t find a better example of material that could be used in a demoralization campaign. It’s subtle enough that (I suppose) many don’t see it. But what that article leaves us with is that no one in our government, even the so-called good guys, has good motives, that they are all part of a money-making machine and are reporting their findings to us for that purpose only, and that none of it matters. He doesn’t state that last part outright, but that is the impression the article leaves.
Well, bummer. [Insert Eeyore here.] Nothing encouraging, nothing uplifting, no gratitude that finally someone is exposing the corruption (which would not be happening if Repubs did not have a House majority).
Most importantly, no analysis of what the revelation of the information that is coming out might have. Because, despite that fact that no law enforcement is going to do an early-morning raid on the JB family, it IS earth-shattering and IS having an effect on the political landscape, here and internationally. It is a huge step in the right direction that will have far-reaching consequences.
I object to someone on our side assuming the role of demoralization officer for no good reason that I can see.
YOU ARE RIGHT!
It is one of the reasons I do not read OT much every more.
We do not need demoralization. It is the first step used in making us SLAVES.
Phoenix – I’m going to say this as kindly as I can. I am not unemotional in our fight, but (whether it shows or not), I practice – when I choose to invoke it – complete control of my emotions. “Logical thinking”, as Q always advocated.
I can “go Spock” at any time I choose. And when I do, I can see other people’s emotional errors. This is extremely useful.
Take the Russia / Ukraine conflict. I choose this example because this is one of your most emotional topics.
It is incredibly useful to analyze materials related to it while being able to get past emotional attachments to one side or the other. I can call propaganda by either side exactly what it is – propaganda. People who can’t do that – who bristle at the mere calling of propaganda for what it is, when it is coming from “their” side – cannot see certain things. And I’m being very blunt in saying that many people on both “sides” can’t see certain things. They may be right about a subset of things, but IMO they cannot be correct about many things, that a purely logical position CAN be aware of.
I am utterly and completely aware of every criticism of Sundance that people make here. It’s not like I ignore their comments. EVERY comment that I “like”, has been READ and UNDERSTOOD, and usually agreed with, to some extent, from some perspective. I actually USE those thoughts and criticisms to carefully evaluate what Sundance says.
However – and it pains me to say this – I see SO MUCH uncontrolled emotion here, regarding Sundance, and I see it blinding people. Because of that emotion, I can see people “reacting badly” – ignoring things that favor their own viewpoints – or even more bizarrely, adopting positions that contradict their normal inclinations. And – as far as I can tell – it’s due to emotion.
I have also seen people (some of whom are no longer here) get very smart when they “got past” Sundance’s “triggering qualities”, and began to pay attention to his key points in spite of their feelings.
IMO, this is part of why Christ advocated forgiveness – to enable us to see more deeply into problems, where the enemy truly lies.
Sundance – like most of us – is a very flawed person. However, he does certain things well, if one digs past all the stuff that people criticize. I choose to dig past that stuff – just like I do with everybody who has an opinion.
Logical thinking helps me do that.
I’m not saying that anybody here has to be any less emotional, or more logical, than they are. I’m not even saying that they SHOULD be different in any way. Freedom means that people can be exactly the way they are, and nobody can legitimately tell them to change.
I’m just explaining why I see the importance in so much of what Sundance says, while utterly ignoring all the negatives that do exist for many people, and send those people into a rage.
I hope that explains why I’m neither “loyal” nor “disloyal” to Sundance.
I am in complete agreement. I go to SD’s site for information, not to ‘follow” him. Sometimes he is spot on with something I agree with or brings stuff I did not know about. Other times he sounds like a petulant child and will beat a dead horse into glue. He’s a guy with a keyboard and a following.
As an example I’m not particularly enthralled with his “silos” concept. It’s a cop out. Each alphabet and department knows what the others are doing. Some even share staff and operatives. All of the staff attorneys and IGs of each agency and department talk with each other because many of the duties overlap or otherwise connect. Many of the govt employees change jobs between departments frequently throughout their careers. They go to lunch ,dinner, parties ,etc. together. It’s a big club with smaller groups within the club performing functions that keep the club in power.
Been there, done that. He’s not going to sell me on the silos.
I disagree on the silos. On that, I am quite sure he is correct. It’s a turf war playing into the pissing contest concept. Basically, sand box level.
On some other stuff, not so much. I don’t think anyone in the media is surprised by much at all.
I think it is like any other corporation or large group. You have in groups, cross overs spying and in fighting BUT over all that you have this attitude that THEY are the government and WE are lower than whale Schiff. You saw it in the Peter Strozk email about Walmart.
I had a boss who came out of the government, I have never worked for a nastier more cut throat person in my life.
DOJ is bought and paid for why else would they behave the way they do.
What they, Jordan et al are doing, is REVEALING the corruption.
We keep forgetting you can not govern WITHOUT A MANDATE TO GOVERN.
The French revolution and many others proved that. When people get too pissed off they WILL REVOLT. (China is worried about that too.)
The oversight committee’s job is to REVEAL the corruption as ordinary people feel the pinch of the Biden Policies.

I spent an exorbitant amount of time tonight blocking YouTube on the boy’s laptop.
I mean, how hard can redirecting http://www.youtube.com to 127.0.0.1 be?
Apparently a whole lot harder than anyone thought. I kept adjusting setting and testing, adjusting settings, testing…
Started blocking “yahoo.com” and it wasn’t getting blocked either…
Flushed DNS, ran updates, rebooted, checked again, got the laptop kicked off my wifi network and that stopped Youtube. But I turned wireless back on and still coming back…
Checked my pings and they were all going to loopback, working exactly as expected, but the webkit-based browsers were still determined to bypass
Clicked the site settings, and set “Your device use” to explicit BLOCK – which should take the hammer to it, and deleted all cached data … “That should do it” nope…
I’m not the only one having the problem, clearly…
Finally I came across this Google help page:
I ended up blocking the aforementioned domains in uBlock Origin and the system hosts file, since blocking them through the mesh wireless wasn’t doing the trick. Something about HTTPS and QUIC mumble mumble.
I guess I just needed a bigger hammer.
But I’m not the only one:
Burn Google to the ground
And homeschool your kids
Don’t let them rot their brains on Youtube – even “for schoolwork”
WOW. Ugly! And makes sense.
There are a variety of means to d/l youtube videos.
Using a “master” computer, d’l all instructional videos appropriate for your kids and host on YOUR OWN SERVER.
Using something like pi-hole, send your kids to a monitored private DNS.
In general, I would seek to kill it in the router rather than let the browser play guessing games.
Bifurcate your network — kids / not kids. Maybe have a kid router.
Whitelist the internet on the kid network. Follow Sturgeon’s Law — “Ninety Percent of Everything is Crap.” Don’t try to blacklist 90%, just whitelist curated content (much self-hosted — it’s not like storage is expensive these days).
I am of the opinion a kid gets his FIRST cell phone and FIRST computer internet connection at AGE 18 AND HE BUYS HIS OWN WHEN HE LEAVES HOME!
I have also been advocating Homeschooling for over 20 years. My attitude towards computers and kids comes Dr Robinson. I thought he was spot on about making kids learn reading writing and math BEFORE allowing them access to a computer.
Robinson Self-Teaching Curriculum
This is Dr Robinson’s story that we who got the ‘Pink News Letter’ followed in real time. His wife died suddenly and he was left with 6 children to home school and a business to run. His curriculum is the outgrowth of that tragedy.
As an aside, he was in PA when his youngest became ill. He took the child to the emergency and the other 5 waited in the car. A nurse noticed, found out the children were courteous well mannered and well behaved… AS A RESULT SHE CALLED THE COPS! After all they HAD to have been ABUSED if they were well behaved. Dr Robinson had to stay with his youngest 24 hr/7 to KEEP THE STATE FROM TAKING THE CHILD. Once the crisis was past, he beat feet. I think he is still ‘wanted’ in PA.
Is it a Chromebook? Then the various “Alphabet” kingdom addresses are probably baked into the OS.
Most browsers out there use the Chrome (don’t get ya home) Engine as their base engine; it seems that that has been forced as an industry standard. Firefox doesn’t use the Chrome Engine, and there may be one or two more, IIRC. Except for that and any other non-Chrome-Engine browsers, those likely have Garble products/companies/addresses baked in.
And then there are some code bits that bypass the hosts file. Micro$haft is notorious for that, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Gargle does the same thing.
I hate the thought of getting a hardware/DPI/edge router/firewall, with all the added configuration and rules headaches, but sometimes I’m mad/frustrated enough to get one.
Almost…. not there yet, but I can see well enough again to research it…
EU is ready to destroy open-source software.
Instead of banning it, censoring it, or blocking it, they’re going to it the way only the EU knows how: make open-source authors liable under international law for security vulnerabilities.

Europe is capable of fucking up anything.
Just like Brandon. 😠
Tag Team, coordinated effort.
Wolfie, You forgot the word DELIBERATELY..
Americans are going to have to realize that there is a REASON most Americans come from families with ancestors that FLED Europe, or were slave-traded BY Europe.
Europe sucks. It has for thousands of years. The serf/peasant/gentry/nobility/royalty class system is entrenched to the bone.
We’re AMERICAN. Screw Europe.
“Our ancestors were kicked out of every decent country in the world.”
The EU is really chasing the Dark Ages with all their might….
I don’t think they’ll have to worry about FOSS very much while they’re shivering, starving, with the lights out.
And has invited in, with open arms (and other appendages, say the cynics) the prime darkness of the dark ages, the Mohammedans…
Coudenhove-Kalergi, Cloward-Piven, they’re pretty much the same. Destroy normalcy, install socialism/marxism/Nazism/etc. Rebuild the tower of Babel into an unHoly Roman Empire…
They’re trying to get rid of contractors/independent developers, etc., too. The UK has all but killed off self-employed programmers/designers/architects/etc…
I think this is worth watching, no matter what your viewpoint is on the fight in Ukraine. Yes, it’s Ukraine / NATO propaganda, but I think it’s a good insight into the reality of war, and the dangers to troops. Bear in mind that it’s the same on the other side.
You will notice that there is remarkably little “amazing GoPro footage” and lots of “morale-building interview” by the Western journalist.
But for two short two second bursts that show him with some dirt on his face and hands the rest is hollywood. The talk/attitude is about right but lacks the element of delirium that really makes it fun. My guess would be this was pieced together after talking with troops in the thick of it but if you filmed them you might scare the normies.
Yes, they don’t want to scare people. IMO they want to further the delusion that the war is winnable by “Ukraine”.
What assholes. Our blue-eyed protagonist is supposedly willing to fight and die so Nazis can keep killing the Slavic Untermenschen in the Donbass. Yay, team! Evil Russians! Scripps can GFT.
Propaganda is one thing, but this is horribly insulting.
Mind you, Ukraine has about 25% blue-eyed people — https://www.worldatlas.com/articles/countries-with-the-most-blue-eyed-people.html — but Russia has notably fewer (except in Saint Petersburg, which used to be Swedish).
So, what are the chances that the people who have been shelled since the 2014 Nuland Revolution are the darker-eyed Ukrainians?
I made it for 30 seconds.
The “Hollywood” journalist voice, the carefully-selected youthful face of the GoPro-kid, etc. just screams propaganda film to me. “Realities” of war? I doubt it. No thanks.
I got some really good information about Ukrainian tactics out of it, actually. But that’s all I’m saying on the subject. I don’t want the Nazis and Jazis to know how and what information they’re leaking.
This is why I encourage people to bring propaganda here. There is always an enormous amount of useful truth buried in it.
You sound like Burning Bright. He loves to dissect the propaganda the Fake News puts out to see what REAL information they let slip.
He also uses it to show the shifting of the ‘narrative’ in the information war.
It is why I watch him and Just Human.
Maybe that’s his day job. 😆
Oh, I’m sure there is, for the discerning eye. I just don’t have the patience for it.
You will be shocked to read this from an academic source.
Should Academic DEI Programs Be Abolished?
Even so, Mac Donald gets a pass because her cross-examination of Karith Foster was the most effective of the night [53:00]:
HM: Do you have an example of a black faculty member who was not just turned down because of his race, but was not considered for his race?
KF: I am not aware of that.
HM: Okay. And of black students, do you know of any black students who have not been admitted to college because of the color of their skin?
KF: Personally, I do not.
Oh. Are we finally allowed to say it out loud? That the whole DEI “racket” (Mac Donald’s description) is an expensive, wasteful, misdirected, and divisive “corrective” to a ginned-up moral panic over a non-existent problem?
Yes, I think we can. And we damn sure better get moving with it.
DeSantis doing good work there! Wish DeWine would follow!
In my eyes he would be more efective if he comes out and says ” not running for President”. Since he is not I take everything as suspect.
That may yet happen since he has not said he IS running.
We have to see and wait what happens.
It’s all about the money.
Maybe, his plan is a Senate run. (Then POTUS)
That is a possibility.
Every Conservative governor should be echoing Windsock Ron.
He gets so much spot on, when he is NOT auditioning for POTUS.
Even if repeating, this is worth drilling in…..
KEY WORD KNOWINGLY…
We’ve Entered the Vaxx-Regret Stage When Comedians Can Make Fun of Themselves for Getting Jabbed
Worth listening to the end!!!
That was excellent. He even says he (people who got vaxed) would not have stood up to the Nazis.
Yes – THAT is a crucial observation.
THAT IS a key. Jabbed really, really need to WTFU.
WHO is the enemy of the American people, and so is any government agency that supports them.
Read what WHO is saying parents should do. I’ll bet that Pedo Joe is just fine with it, too.
Beware a push against “hate” right now. IMO it’s cover for advancing TRANS to support WHO, as well as many other nasty agendas.
Elites manufacture fake “hate” crisis as pretext for mass spying, blacklists, and censorship
Target saw Bud Light, and said HOLD MY BEER…..
Yet another example of a corporation doing the EXACT OPPOSITE of the goal of any business; attempting to make money.
There is no rational explanation for this. NONE. You can’t alienate 2/3 of your customer base and continue to make money.
Ancient gods or demons. Call it what you like. But something supernatural is at work in this world. I wish I could deny it, but I can’t.
It’s deception, which is Satan’s specialty.
Companies are using “ESG” considerations to make moves directly against their own custormer-based interests (meaning, their interests with US), but which appear to offer a financial interest with those who hold the purse strings “above” themselves – meaning the financiers.
ESG is a pernicious idea that cuts PEOPLE out of the equation.
44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

I was wondering how long this list would be.
You must have left a lot of people out.
At least 1/2! IIRC several years ago it was well north of sixty. LINK
(Boy did I have trouble finding that list!)
An awful lot of dyin’ goin’ on.
Not my list, just copied at that link. I just posted a meme that gives a different take above…
I am continually amazed at the sorts of things I get in the mail since I started listing my occupation as “Consultant” about 30 years ago.
One example is the 2023-2024 Travel Catalog from National Geographic Expeditions.
The gist is that you go to places and use the National Geographic on-the-ground connections…..or can go full boat and have one of the National Geographic authors as your guide.
Mind you, I have my own connections to many of the places I might like to go. If I were going to Costa Rica, I might consult with Dr. Ron Coleman; if I were visiting the Zambian Coast of Lake Tanganyika, I’d want to coordinate with Ad Konings…..but NG has little trips to Costa Rica starting at $5,495 for nine days. This is far more reasonable than prior years.
Of course, they still do the prior year versions — e.g. “Cultural Wonders of Africa / A Journey by Private Jet” — 23 days starting at $99,995. How the blazes they tagged me as someone potentially willing and able to shell out a hundred grand for such a trek is a complete mystery. I don’t even subscribe to National Geographic anymore.
And, seriously, “Yosemite National Park / Private Expedition” — 7 days from $5,195? How can you possibly splurge over $700 per day in Yosemite? I have to suspect there is some toe-sucking involved…..
