Dear KMAG: 20230703 Joe Biden Didn’t Win ❀ Open Topic

Joe Biden didn’t win. This is our Real President:

AND our beautiful REALFLOTUS.


This week, we begin a new half-year of Monday posts.

I am returning the post format to “Wheatie-style brevity” while sometimes adding short topics or notifications.


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!

We will always remember Wheatie,

Pray for Trump,

Yet have fun,

and HOLD ON when things get crazy!


We will follow the RULES of civility that Wheatie left for us:

Wheatie’s Rules:

  1. No food fights.
  2. No running with scissors.
  3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone.

And while we engage in vigorous free speech, we will remember Wheatie’s advice on civility, non-violence, and site unity:

“We’re on the same side here so let’s not engage in friendly fire.”

“Let’s not give the odious Internet Censors a reason to shut down this precious haven that Wolf has created for us.”

If this site gets shut down, please remember various ways to get back in touch with the rest of the gang:

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.

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.


Word of The Week:

Glock switch

noun

  • a device which people can (most often illegally) attach to handguns, particularly Glock pistols, to turn them into fully automatic weapons
  • technically, the device is a kind of “auto-sear”
  • causes nearly instantaneous depletion of the magazine
  • leads to extreme inaccuracy
  • results in frequent killing or wounding of innocent bystanders
  • leads to increased federal involvement and anti-gun rhetoric
  • can be made with 3D printers, but most are imported
  • like fentanyl, mostly made in China

Just in case you missed that:

MOSTLY MADE IN CHINA

Pictures of ONE typical Glock switch:

For your enjoyment, some epic heroic orchestral music in Wheatie’s favorite style.


I will soon be publishing a statement on the end of Affirmative Action in university admissions. I thought that I might include that statement with this open thread, but I wish to do a better job and not rush it into print. Please bear with me.

Thank you, and God bless you all! -W


ENJOY THE SHOW

Have a great week!

Thanks to Valerie for this and other images.

PS – may you have a very, very patriotic Fourth of July!

I’m looking forward to your post on affirmative action, and God bless you, too!

kalbokalbs

Same here.

Barb Meier

Me too! I tried to find Rush’s comments about it to share with one of my gradeschool acquaintances who is clearly repeating the leftist opinion. I decided I am not up for that discussion with her. I did find comments by Rush about it, but not the one I remember hearing one Saturday that was so pitch perfect.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

I know that feeling.

Sometimes just coming back two hours later makes me realize there’s a much cleaner way to explain the concept.

Not that anyone who doesn’t already understand it bothers to read my science/math stuff!

cthulhu

Even when I’ve had a vague understanding of things, there have been numerous occasions where my understanding has been enhanced by your articles. Don’t sell yourself short.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

But you pretty much know this stuff; I’m just putting polish on.

I was saying those who didn’t know it at all probably aren’t bothering to read it.

cthulhu

Judging by the discussions afterward, you are reaching more people than you are giving yourself credit for.

Appreciation of the beauties of actual science, and actual mathematics, is not always easy to begin — especially when knowledge of both have been so rudely abused by education over the last several decades. Fortunately, such beauties can be approached by numberless paths. Your articles have covered a number of such approaches very well…..and I think they have provided a way for people to glimpse the beauties therein.

And if they are enticed by such glimpses, there are many ways to continue one’s approach.

Nicely stated, and I agree.

litenmaus

I literally have never seen some of the math/science stuff that you write about but I look forward to your “dissertations”…

Not only that, you have such a lovely way with insults :0) I love what you bring to the QTree Steve…Thank you!

Barb Meier

I do better with the science stuff than the math stuff where I often get overloaded. However, I always enjoy seeing the ensuing discussion by those of you and try to absorb what I can. You give us so much, Steve, and I really appreciate your body of work here. Thank you!!!

Barb Meier

If you, Gail, and Wolf agree, I would love to include links to your Science/Math Series and to Gail’s Depop Series. Those headings aren’t hot links but might link to the first linked article in each series?) Dropping the general puplic into our daily threads might be a little overwhelming for those long propagandized. Your posts would be great categorized in a new Science/Math filter plus also in Homeschooling (thanks para! Great suggestion; I replied in yesterday’s thread to your comment 1119838).

Also, when I think about adding local events search details, it crossed my mind that a possible unintended risk might be how black hats could use data like that to more easily cause harm to innocents. First time I’ve needed to consider that type of risk.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Go Ahead. Unfortunately, in my case they’re going to also end up seeing the “salty” political commentary…which may render them unsuitable for your purposes (that’s your call of course).

Barb Meier

Thank you, Steve!!! hehe… I will add you next. I just added Homeschooling and the Adams letter which opens up the National Archives, Founders Online to site visitors. That seemed very valuable and I had not known about it. If I remember correctly, you stay on target in the science/math series. If not, readers just need to hold onto their big boy/girl panties and go for the edu ride.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

The actual section of the post that has science and math in it is pretty clean…I take an occasional swipe at the left, but it’s clean.

But they’re almost always part of a bigger post that often *starts* with a nasty little rant for our entertainment.

Some of the early ones that predate the big physics series are probably exceptions.

TheseTruths

Not that anyone who doesn’t already understand it bothers to read my science/math stuff!

I will at least skim it, and in doing so will pick up things that are new to me and that expand my basic knowledge base. I appreciate that very much. Just getting an idea of the depth of subjects that I am not well versed in, is enlightening: the vastness of the universe, an inkling of how facts about its size and age are determined, how mathematics and science are used to affect our lives in ways that so many of us are not aware of, etc. Many times I don’t comment on the technical aspects because it is clear to me that I don’t have the depth of understanding to do so. But that doesn’t mean I am not gaining from the information.

kalbokalbs

Everyone one article gets a good, try. Guessing 10% truly sink in.

Absolutely enlightening. Numerous, ah-ha moments. Stuff I never would have guessed, or thought of.

All appreciated.

With all due respect to pics of the Framers gathered to sign the Declaration, I doubt that they were dressed so formally in July, in Philadelphia, with its muggy summer weather and 90+ degree temps.

Since they were all men and the hall was closed to avoid eavesdroppers, they might have all been undressed down to their skivvies.

cthulhu

Sounds like a Dylan Mulvaney fever-dream, brought on by overconsumption of Bud Light.

cthulhu

The really pathetic thing is I could have easily done a Bud Light commercial featuring Dylan Mulvaney that wouldn’t have caused such an uproar.

Scene: Bud Light beach party, featuring “frat boy” types despised by what’s-her-name. DM staggers in, one heel off a shoe. “Oh, goodness — can I get a cold one?” Gulps part of it down, then explains that was making a delivery of Bud Light to a Goth party up in a dark forest, but truck broke down. A couple of mechanics hike up to the road and fix the truck.

DM drives the truck up to a dark clearing and opens up Bud Light. Whiny goths complain that there’s plenty of it, but it’s warm. DM suggests that beach party seemed friendly.

DM and goths show up at beach party, each carrying case of Bud Light. Welcomed in with cold beer. Several vignettes — goth girls with mechanics; goth guys with bikini babes; seriously butch lesbian goth at table asking DM, “what’s it like, being femme?”; bunch of partiers (including goths) doing line dance to Drunkaby.

Big wrap: “Bud Light — bringing people together since 1982”.

It would have been just too easy to sidestep the problems and do a commercial with something for everyone. Instead, the marketing twit had to shower the whole situation with her contempt.

cthulhu

If they really wanted to get meta, they could have included the Clydesdales, including one dressed all in black.

Barb Meier

Ah but the Clydesdales are precious to us Midwesterners and likely to many others.

Aubergine

That’s actually really good advertising! Impressive!

I am insulted, dear sir, that you would equate my comment with such an effete piece of effluent. The honor of my comment shall be avenged.

I challenge you to a duel at sunrise tomorrow.

It might not have been too bad. Here is a page from Thomas Jefferson’s weather records for the first days of July, 1776:

What’s interesting is the musical/movie 1776 (which is actually not that bad on its history) depicts it being swelteringly hot.

Part of a letter from John Adams to Abigail, July 3, 1776:

Yesterday the greatest Question was decided, which ever was de­bated in America, and a greater perhaps, never was or will be decided among Men. A Resolution was passed without one dissenting Colony “that these united Colonies, are, and of right ought to be free and independent States, and as such, they have, and of Right ought to have full Power to make War, conclude Peace, establish Commerce, and to do all the other Acts and Things, which other States may rightfully do.” You will see in a few days a Declaration setting forth the Causes, which have impell’d Us to this mighty Revolution, and the Reasons which will justify it, in the Sight of God and Man. A Plan of Confederation will be taken up in a few days.

When I look back to the Year 1761, and recollect the Argument concerning Writs of Assistance, in the Superiour Court, which I have hitherto considered as the Commencement of the Controversy, between Great Britain and America, and run through the whole Period from that Time to this, and recollect the series of political Events, the Chain of Causes and Effects, I am surprized at the Suddenness, as well as Greatness of this Revolution. Britain has been fill’d with Folly, and America with Wisdom, at least this is my Judgment.—Time must determine. It is the Will of Heaven, that the two Countries should be sundered forever. It may be the Will of Heaven that America shall suffer Calamities still more wasting and Distresses yet more dreadfull. If this is to be the Case, it will have this good Effect, at least: it will inspire Us with many Virtues, which We have not, and correct many Errors, Follies, and Vices, which threaten to disturb, dishonour, and destroy Us.—The Furnace of Affliction produces Refinement, in States as well as Individuals. And the new Governments we are assuming, in every Part, will require a Purification from our Vices, and an Augmentation of our Virtues or they will be no Blessings. The People will have unbounded Power. And the People are extreamly addicted to Corruption and Venality, as well as the Great.—I am not without Apprehensions from this Quarter. But I must submit all my Hopes and Fears, to an overruling Providence, in which, unfashionable as the Faith may be, I firmly believe.

TradeBait2

What a wise man. I am in awe and thankful.

Aubergine

Beautiful. We should give heed to these words in particular in America today:

“And the new Governments we are assuming, in every Part, will require a Purification from our Vices, and an Augmentation of our Virtues or they will be no Blessings.”

I pray God will augment our virtues and save us from ourselves.

Federal Court Delivers Blow to ATF’s Ban on ‘Ghost Guns’
https://www.theepochtimes.com/federal-court-delivers-blow-to-atfs-ban-ghost-guns_5370013.html

A federal judge delivered a blow to the Biden administration’s gun control policy by reversing a federal ban on so-called “ghost guns” and argued that the ATF overstepped its authority.

Texas-based United States District Court Judge Reed O’Connor on Friday ruled that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) erred by saying that unfinished gun parts are guns and can, therefore, be regulated. His ruling said that parts aren’t guns under federal law.

“This case presents the question of whether the federal government may lawfully regulate partially manufactured firearm components, related firearm products, and other tools and materials in keeping with the Gun Control Act of 1968,” wrote O’Connor in his order (pdf). “Because the court concludes that the government cannot regulate those items without violating federal law, the court holds that the government’s recently enacted final rule … is unlawful agency action taken in excess of the ATF’s statutory jurisdiction. On this basis, the court vacates the final rule.”

His order also stated that the ATF is trying to regulate a gun component as a “frame or receiver,” even after the agency determined “the component in question is not a frame or receiver.” Elaborating, he wrote: “It may not. Logic dictates that a part cannot be both not yet a receiver and receiver at the same time. Defendants’ reliance on that logical contradiction is fatal to their argument.”

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

The ATF is itself an overstepping of authority.

Joey is assuming that the Left both understands and gives a flying ratfuck about Aristotelian logic.

No, they use logic whose only rule is that any argument that justifies wokeism/”social justice” is valid, while any argument against it is invalid.

RedLegLeader68

When do we get our statues back?

Barb Meier

Has someone done a statue tracker yet to show where all our statues that were taken down have gone?

para59r

Not that I’m aware of.
Many that have been rescued end up on private property. Might be nice to know where.
Also some municipalities are actually ware housing them in undisclosed locations so might need a “last seen or suspected location”.

Trumps idea of a national statue parks seems crazy that we would have to, but we have too. Therefore brilliant.

para59r

Just like they have nullified the case for Green Energy by wanting to block out the sun. These people are insufferable.

Deplorable Patriot

Hey, all.

Before I get too into gathering up stuff for tomorrow’s daily, I would like to know if you all can SEE this tweet here in the comment section. (The thread dismantles the “France is on fire” narrative.)

https://twitter.com/LezLuthor/status/1675642182580023296

I assume – and we all know the pitfalls of that – that if you can see it without a Twitter account, you’ll be able to see the tweets in the body of the post. The restrictions currently on Twitter are due to a security issue brought on by MASSIVE intrusion into the backside of Twitter to “scrape” info on what people are talking about in order to change/guide narratives to the desired discussion much higher than yours or my pay grade. This is information warfare on the digital battlefield as it is the one and only free speech platform that is open enough to do this. I know there are people dismissive of Twitter, but it is really the only real time vehicle on the internet for getting information out to the masses, and, well, the powers that wannabe can’t have that. I do have a video for the daily that explains all this, but it’s in a tweet and if y’all can’t see it, I would need to do some transcribing to really get a good explanation out there.

So, please, let me know and I will adjust accordingly.

pat frederick

when i click on that link i am directed to twitter where it tells me “something went wrong” try again. trying again does the exact same thing.

the only way i can see tweets now is if you copy/paste the entire wording.

barkerjim

Agreed!

para59r

Didn’t get that. Link opened immediately. Thing though it didn’t post here as a regular twitter post. As I look up and down our thread, I’m not seeing any twitter posts so I’ll repost the link to see what happens when I post.
https://twitter.com/LezLuthor/status/1675642182580023296?s=20

So that done and it did not post as a regular twitter post. Goes to grab some random twitter post too see what happens.

Okay, that posts as a regular twitter post for me at least.

But, you have a Twitter account. That’s the difference.

What’s going on is vital to the information war, but there are a lot of people who aren’t understanding that. It has to do with uncontrolled, real time information dissemination.

The daily body will have more on that.

phoenixrising

Yes … people are attacking Elon … not just here but all over the net

I’m convinced more than ever that the majority of people form an unshakeable ‘opinion’ based on EMOTION …

Deplorable Patriot

And incomplete information.

para59r

Isn’t there someone at the circumlocution office we can complain too? 😮

It’s like we’ve entered into a new and unfamiliar terrain and your right, it’s going to muck up the field if it continues.

Just to be clear, (for my own postings) can everyone see Conservative Mama post as normal with out having to hit the link to open it?

phoenixrising

Yes, I can see a tweet as normal when posted …

Elon is working on the matter as De Pat mentioned … it will take time…

Yes.

Just to be clear, (for my own postings) can everyone see Conservative Mama post as normal with out having to hit the link to open it?

I was able to view it here.

Yes I see it. Did you C/P the whole lot of it or did you just post the link?

para59r

Just did the “copy link from tweet” at the bottom right of tweet (up arrow).

pat frederick

absolutely!
twitter is not just cute kittens and memes.
it’s on the spot videos and information the “news” never seems to cover.
so it absolutely IS vital!

barkerjim

That link doesn’t work for me.

para59r

Which one? Conservative Mama link or Depat’s Lez Luthor status link?

Sometimes I suspect you are not located in the US and have additional filters on what you can and can’t see being applied against you. Not sure if that is right and likely not any of my business so you are under no obligation to say. 😁

I wonder if Twitter put the breaks on concerning access of non members because of the France violence. Wonder who put pressure on him because the violence is going out of control like wildfire in Europe. This could even jump to the US. If people have not not full access to twitter that can stifle the revolution that is happening?
I just find it so strange that Twitter just now changes when France is burning and Belgian is not far behind. Maybe I am just going of the rail 🙂

Cuppa Covfefe

That’s what I’ve been thinking, too. There are two “important” meetings for the globalists going on this weekend- WEFfenSS in RED China (discussing lockdowns, social profiling, digital currency, etc.), and a meeting of the EC/EU in Brussels (maybe someone’s supplying free marshmallows to roast on the car-b-ques)… then next week or the week after is the NATO summit… would be *cough* convenient to have a worldwide news blackout on those events, wouldn’t it???

Seems the Mozzies are heating up the Fondue/Raclette rechauds in Switzerland, too…

Incredible what is happening and truly scary.

I can see the tweet if I click the link, but of course I am on Twitter.

This is an unpopular opinion I’m sure but I think people should just sign up. I have accounts on all social media except Facebook (which is worthless), even though I don’t use most of them.

I want access to whatever digital battlespace the war is on at the moment.

Deplorable Patriot

Actually, for me, FB is invaluable, but it’s where I am and how my family communicates. For example, we had MASSIVE thunderstorms over the weekend, and there’s trees down, power out, etc. The pool and other athletic facility on the same campus were out yesterday. The city put out fantastic communications about closures, asking for where trees were down, etc. It was great.

My problem with it is some people just post away like they have not a care in the world, and we really want to know all the details of their lives.

Aubergine

Yes, I agree for some it is an important piece. It was just one too many for me. And it was too much detail, as you note.

kalbokalbs

Yup. Cities, counties and schools use FB as their, Emergency Alerts, Breaking Gotta Have Flashes…

Sadly agree. On my crap to do list, next week.

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, Amen.

A lot of critical skill sets are disappearing from the USA workforce due to retiring and death. Tool makers, machine builder people who can grab a set of detailed prints and produce on a lathe and a milling machine start to finish on time in tolerance without using a cdc software driven machine. it may sound obsolete thinking but many critical things have to be made by hand at least the first time and those people are becoming harder to find.

Living in the country, I get my water from a well, a 35 year old well and a pump that once in a while needs repairing. Just days ago, a ‘key’ (whatever that is) cracked … water was spewing forth like a fountain. Cut the pump off at the electrical panel and called the people who originally dug the well. They (he actually) came out the next morning (I was in the que!) and repaired. As I watched him, I realized that no young sons have followed in the footsteps of the two brothers who own this company … both brothers are in their 60s .. What will happen when there is no one locally or even elsewhere to repair? I won’t be alive to worry about it, but …

My house needs repairs… try finding a carpenter… or an electrician. Still trying to find one to hook up a generator. How ’bout someone to do yard work? I was in Lowe’s Friday to pick up mulch… young man who works in management was only person available to load my trolley. He told me he had called several employees to come in, none wanted to work. That has been the case for a very long time… I have been observing ‘Help Wanted’ signs everywhere.

Just an ol’ lady here … wondering how lazy, unskilled people are going to survive what is coming.

I have problems getting a house painter even though I have a brick home. Windows and the dorm in the attic need to be painted.
I could buy new windows in but windows are still good. Unless one does painting one self no luck.
Getting my boiler replaced too all summer to find someone. Finally we found someone 2 hours away to put a new boiler in. Cutting grass with push mower my husband does he is going to be 81 this week . One cannot find anyone kids do not cut any longer and professionals do not want to bother unless one has a very large grass cutting yard.
Mind you this Town is depressed no work many people are on hand outs. We used to get people and it stopped 10 years ago. People wanted to work in the past and we always paid a fair wage because I did not like the exploitation.

People are not hungry enough. There used to be a generation who would work to support the family and there was pride in it.

There have been a number of articles recently about the current generation (“on beyond Zebra” to paraphrase Dr. Suess) not wanting to work at all; living at home with their parents, and extending their adolescence into their thirties and beyond….

And their underwater basketweaving/gender studies dual major won’t help them find a job, in any case.

Dewey and Mann (and Rockefeller, et. al.) planned to dumb down America. It seems like their rotten plan is bearing fruit 😡 😡 😡 😡

There’s also Invisible Serf’s Collar, another good site about the ed biz, and quite technical and well-researched… Hmmm. Seems invisibleserfscollar.com has been “parked” by GoDaddy. Drat.

Kalifornistan and Øbløwhøle shut down the largest glass plant in the USA, Owens-Brockway (formerly Owens-Illinois) plant 20 in Oakland, CA. and moved (as it were) the jobs and production to Mexico. That was back in 2015.

Glass has been dying for decades now, even though it’s far better than plastic for many things, and now the anti-plastic/anti-“fossil fuels” movement will put the greengang in a quandry. Glass furnaces and the annealing lehrs require a lot of natural gas in order to melt the glass, and to anneal the bottles after they’ve been formed. No fossil fuels means no more bottles… (I come from an O-I family, so that was a big part of my life back in the day)…

Having said that, Dud Lite doesn’t deserve the privilege of being in bottles; put it in cans, or plastic, to preserve that weak taste 🙂

July 7, 2022 Century Aluminum the second largest aluminum mill in America, accounting for 20% of US Supply can’t afford risen energy prices and will idle the Hawesville, Kentucky mill taking out the biggest of its three US sites

July 11, 2022 – Kaiser Aluminum declares “force majeure” and closes the Warrick Rolling Mill

Kaiser, which acquired the Warrick Rolling Mill business from Pittsburgh-based Alcoa Corp. (NYSE: AA) in April 2021, says the lack of magnesium has reduced its ability to make the products at this time.

[Force majeure clauses are provisions in contracts that release the obligations of parties, either temporarily or completely, due to circumstances beyond their control.]

During 2022 Aluminum plants in Norway, Slovakia and Germany were closed due to high energy prices

And in March of this year, Canada, the US and the European Union sanction Russia and forbid the importation of aluminum from Russia.

Cuppa Covfefe

Almost all of the metal and chemical industries have either left Germany or have plans to do so, including some that are HUNDREDS of years old…

Any energy-intensive industry (and most are) is bound to have a tough row to hoe here in Germany, as GangGreen are hell-bent on killing our economy, if not our entire native population, to be replaced by Süd-süd-südländers, i.e. the refauxgees/terrorists from MEA (the Middle East and Africa)…..

Come to think of it, they could make bottles for other customers, indeed for other markets. When I was at Owens, they had job changes, mold changes, and color changes. Anything from salad bottles to baby food bottles, to jelly jars, to wine bottles, to champagne bottles, to beer bottles, to soda bottles, you name it.

Being a captive vendor is never a safe business practice; it could be that that factory has been circling the drain for a while. And two machines is not a lot; plant 20 had five furnaces, each with up to seven or so machines popping out bottles 24×7… the machines nowadays are bigger, but still they should be able to change molds and do something else….. Also wonder if it’s just a layoff; that used to happen from time to time in the early 1960s due to market fluctuations. In any case, I hope and pray that the displaced or laid-off workers find other jobs.

And AB-InBev learn and turn…

Hmmm. Since Coors and Miller are seeing their volume increase by about the amount that DudLite has decreased, THEIR suppliers probably need help, depending on their capacity. It’s approaching summer, so the fruit/veggie/jam/ketchup/etc. runs will be coming soon… I can still smell the DelMonte ketchup factory “aroma” in my head 🙂

Larry’s latest:

IS MOSCOW BURNING AS PRIGOZHIN’S VAST NETWORK OF SIDE BUSINESSES IS EXPOSED?
2 July 2023 by Larry Johnson 60 Comments

FTA

“Looks like Hitler was 79 years too early. Yes, many parts of Paris now are blazing as well as buildings and cars in other cities, and there is no end in sight. Yet the West is treating this as sort of a ho-hum business and none of the major media outlets are warning that Macron is on the ropes and on the precipice of being forced from office. So let me posit an alternative question — can you imagine the orgasm the Western media would be enjoying if the chaos that now shakes France (and reminiscent of the rioting that gripped the US during the summer of 2020) was occurring in Moscow?

I suspect the media — print, social media and the major TV channels — would be doing wall-to-wall coverage about Putin losing his grip on power and announcing that Russia was headed towards the cliff of dissolution. Be still my beating heart.

This is not a good look for the upcoming NATO meeting in Vilnius as the second most important European NATO member after Germany is wracked by a massive wave of violence. And while I’m beating a dead horse let me reiterate a point I made in my last article — Sweden’s attendance at the meeting will be a major distraction, at least for Turkiye, which is likely to excoriate Sweden for allowing the Koran to be desecrated. The Organization of Islamic Cooperation held an emergency meeting on Sunday in Saudi Arabia on the margins of the Hajj and issued the following joint statement:

“We must send constant reminders to the international community regarding the urgent application of international law, which clearly prohibits any advocacy of religious hatred,” OIC Secretary-General Hissein Brahim Taha said.

I would not be surprised to see Turkiye’s NATO representative insist that NATO issue a declaration in support of the OIC. Since Turkiye’s military is the second largest in NATO, after the United States, its position on this issue cannot be ignored.

Shifting gears, there is a fascinating and expansive article in the Wall Street Journal detailing Yevgeny Prigozhin’s massive, formerly hidden, business empire. Here are some salient points from that piece:

Before Prigozhin fell from the Kremlin’s favor, he built one of the world’s most complicated and unaccountable corporate structures, a heavily-sanctioned spidergram of hundreds of companies in Russia and other jurisdictions that often paid their thousands of workers, mercenaries, line cooks, mining geologists, and social-media trolls in cash.

Many of the deals Wagner-linked companies struck with African governments were informal, reliant on smuggling and illicit transfers and personally negotiated by Prigozhin himself, Western, Arab and African officials say. 

One company employee said in text messages reviewed by the Journal that Prigozhin had transferred some of his holdings to employees in the weeks before the mutiny, potentially making them even more complicated for the government to requisition. 

I am struck by the level of detail in the article, which leads to the question — why is this info coming to light now? I’m inclined to believe that the Russians are leaking this info to Western sources in order to further sunder Prigozhin. (I do not follow Russian-language news media and wonder if this is getting any play in Russia — let me know.) However, can’t discount possibility that this comes from MI-6 and it is being freely shared through liaison channels. In any event, it does expose Prigozhin as working a lot of side deals outside the boundaries of his Russian Government contracts and raises the prospect that he was sharing some of the wealth with his GRU handlers.

Andrei Martyanov has reported that the alleged close relationship between Putin and Prigozhin is a gross, erroneous exaggeration. Prigozhin, the consummate name dropper, used his alleged relationship with Putin to build his credibility over the last two decades with the GRU and MOD in order to boost his standing. At least that is what he was doing last year prior to his recent self-immolation.

So to the top part of the story, although the globalists are keeping low information types in the dark as to what is happening in France, Belgium and Switzerland, you just got to know Joe Biden and Obama too are happy and gleeful as can be as all those who use alternative media effectively are engrossed with what’s happening in Europe and thus not engaged with his misdeeds and it would not be a stretch to think they are directly responsible for what is happening.

Regarding the appearance (after a 20-gap) of malaria in Florida — there’s an article today at http://www.theburningplatform.com/ on this subject that led to:
http://www.news-medical.net/news/20221201/Two-experimental-mrna-vaccines-highly-effective-in-reducing-malaria-infection-and-transmission.aspx
Yours Truly: the research for these mRNA-based “vaccines” came from the NIH and from George Washington University, where the research was performed.
Both of these “vaccines” use an mRNA plasmid that is part of an LNP (lipid nanoparticle— sound familiar?)
Both of these “vaccines” showed that were “highly effective” in reducing infection and transmission of malaria (“highly effective”—sound familiar?)
The research paper title:
“mRNA – LNP expressing PfCSP and Pfs25, two leading vaccine candidates targeting infection and transmission of Plasmodium falciparum”, and is found at Research-Square.
Not trying to link the current malaria cases to the above, but it does seem interesting that TWO mRNA-based “vaccine candidates” against malaria were funded by the NIH and George Washington University.

TheseTruths

They’re not going to give up on the model of scaring the people, then providing their “solution” that furthers their other goals.

The people are wiser, to the scam.

Future compliance, will never be like Covidiocy was.

But yea. There will be a re-run, tweaked of course.

  • CBDC to some degree, likely also in play. Complicating life for us.
RAC

It grows easy enough and is free…

“The antimalarial chloroquine, which was in the past a mainstay of malaria control, is now ineffective in most malaria areas and resistance to other antimalarials is also increasing rapidly. The discovery and development of artemisinins from Artemisia annua have provided a new class of highly effective antimalarials.”

https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/18977424/

Smiling a bit.

Clearly, I am not literate in the technical aspects, of vaccine conversations.

Them tone deaf, dumb bunnies at NIH and GWU, think this fool will ever trust a mRNA vaccine.  😂   😅   😂 

I do recall, a QTreeper shared, mRNA has some goodness in the medical world. Can’t recall what it is.

Zip, zero, nada goodness in vaccines with mRNA, is my take.

—-

Looking forward.

I expect some mRNA vaccines will dictated mandatory by WHO, CDC, health ninnies in states, counties and cities. WILL BE A HUGE ISSUE in America.

  • Vaccine passport of some sort mandated.
  • Access to health care, supermarkets, etc.
  • CBDC over anyone receiving Federal income. Employment, retirement, contracts, welfare. I guess the latter is State. Still gonna be CDDC, in my estimation.

Americans will massively push back. Say NO, firmly, emphatically, along with wide spread civil disobedience. <<<

  • It will also be a test of where LE stands. Will LE stand with the Constitution, We The People or with Dictators.
  • While I don’t look forward to this , I do believe it is inevitable. When it arrives, I’ll be up for it.

TX College Fires Professor for Defining Sex

https://dallasexpress.com/education/tx-college-fires-professor-for-defining-sex/

A professor of biology at a college in Texas who was allegedly fired for telling his class that X and Y chromosomes determine sex believes his First Amendment rights have been violated.

Johnson Varkey had been an instructor at St. Philip’s College in San Antonio since 2003. He had taught more than 1,500 students in that time, according to a letter his attorneys at First Liberty Institute wrote to the college, demanding his reinstatement. First Liberty Institute is a law firm that specializes in religious freedom cases, as noted in a Texas Scorecard report about Varkey’s firing.

According to the demand letter, on November 28, 2022, four students walked out of his class after he gave the chromosomal-based definition of sex.

In January of 2023, an email from Randall Dawson, vice president for academic success at St. Philip’s College, informed Varkey that a complaint had been filed against him and that his school access privileges had been suspended. Two weeks later, Varkey received a termination notice. The notice referenced “numerous complaints” lodged against Varkey.

“The complaint[s] contained several reports of ‘religious preaching, discriminatory comments about homosexuals and transgender individuals, anti-abortion rhetoric, and misogynistic banter,’” reads the demand letter.

The lawyers went on to assert that although Varkey is a devout Christian and holds many beliefs that would be considered socially conservative — such as “one’s sex is ordained by God” — he has never mentioned or preached about his religious beliefs in class. Therefore, the letter states, “the allegation that he conducted ‘religious preaching’ is unsubstantiated.”

The letter accuses St. Philip’s College of violating Varkey’s rights under the Free Speech Clause and Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment, citing a number of judicial decisions. It also accuses St. Philip’s of violating Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, which prohibits termination for religious beliefs and protected speech.

A few personal updates . . . prayers requested

A couple weeks back my doctor put me on new meds. I think they’re making me fatigued. Yesterday I had a long nap in the afternoon and then fell asleep again after dinner. This is not cool b/c I have schoolwork to do – 3 cr hour summer course.

At least it’s nice having a holiday, and I took a PTO day from work Friday.

On my 45 yr old friend who passed away – the “widow” has updated her fundraising page and provided a picture of where she intends to put the burial plot. But no location! No details on the memorial or the service. She hasn’t told the parents either. Typical par for the course behavior.

It sounds like he did not have a substantial life insurance policy. I can’t believe it, with four kids, how do you not have a $1M term life policy? Well, talking with others it could be that he knew she wouldn’t use it well . . .

I did find our old d0main from the dot com days, AFAIK it was still being used as an email host. I checked whois, it has privacy protection with GoDaddy turned on, but the domain is scheduled to be ECLIPSED later this year.

A-I posted some updates in chat

My Grandfather was in emergency surgery having his aortic aneurysm repaired Friday night. Two stents total, one in either side of the groin. My parents sent a picture Saturday. For being in his 80s and out of surgery he was looking good, awake, and responsive.

My parents visited again Sunday after church. He is clearly very confused today and very tired it was difficult to get him to respond. They spent some time talking with the nurse, and it seems like everything in Florida requires talking in circles with people to get traction. He’s obviously not ready to be discharged but they hospital wants him out; the nurse says my parents should be engaging with the case manager. So then nurse stated that the case manager had been trying to contact the family for several days. My mother asked what number they were contacting, and were they calling or just sending texts? Not every phone gets text messages. Finally got a message left on the house phone.

The Case Manager and social worker says my parents need to start coming up with a plan for discharge. But don’t ask them for assistance and getting a place to live that offers the level of care he needs now.

I’m so sick of these people dumping all these problems on my mother – who is the daughter-in-law. They just expect family to pick up all the slack and don’t care.

I was very irritated, the nurse asked about the family and there are two daughters, one in Oklahoma and one in California, and she asked so where are they? Seriously? Butt out, you don’t know the family dynamic. My mother, the daughter-in-law, has MPoA! But they don’t know that, can’t seem to find the paperwork, and keep stonewalling when my mother talks with them even though her signature is on all the authorizations because they can’t wrap their heads around the situation. “Well if you aren’t family we can’t talk to you!” None of the forms have “daughter-in-law” so she’s just been checking off “daughter” – but that also keeps confusing the nurses. . . .

Meanwhile, he needs another surgery. It’s a holiday weekend so I don’t expect that will move forward before Wednesday. So the next 24 hours with the discharge and medicare appeal will be critical.

My brother-in-law said when Pa was in the hospital, a nurse friend told us if we believed they were rushing the discharge to “ask for medical form from Medicare to stay in the hospital.” She indicated that if the form is filed, they get a messy investigation that all the staff is afraid all the way to the hospital’s top officials. Does anyone know what that form might be?

Meanwhile, I’m trying to get details on my great-uncle’s memorial – he passed away a few weeks ago from a stroke and was 80. The memorial was supposed to be last week . . .

But his son, as I understand, suffered a stroke and last I heard was still in the hospital being treated . . . not very many details being released . . . so everything is delayed . . .

Michael — to be done, stat:
FAX a copy of the Medical Power of Attorney document that your mother has to the hospital. NOW. Then —
Get an attorney to call the hospital chief of administration (yes, there’s one of them always there, even on holidays) and tell that person that your family will sue the hospital into the ground if the hospital discharges your grandfather is pushed out.
(You can also make this call yourself while looking around for an attorney.)

Call the CHARGE NURSE on the floor of the hospital where your grandfather is, tell that person there’s a FAXED copy of the Medical Power of Attorney at the hospital, and that YOUR FAMILY DEMANDS THAT YOUR GRANDFATHER STAY IN THE HOSPITAL WHILE A “FAST APPEAL” IS FILED.

The Medicare form I think you need is this one, available from the CMS website:
“Hospital Inpatient Admission Order and Certification”
GET A DOCTOR TO CERTIFY THAT YOUR GRANDFATHER NEEDS TO STAY IN THE HOSPITAL DURING THE “FAST APPEAL” PROCESS. STAT.

There’s a Medicare form for a “Fast Appeal”:
http://www.medicare.gov/claims-appeals/your-right-to-a-fast-appeal/getting-a-fast-appear-in-a-hospital

The Case Manager and the Social Worker at the hospital are NOT your friends. They are NOT advocates for the patients there. Their main job is to get the patient out of the hospital at the earliest possible time, so that the bed can be made ready for the next inpatient.

Call the hospital and get a PATIENT OMBUDSMAN on the case. Stat.

(All of the above are based on Yours Truly’s experiences with very sick relatives who were in the hospital and who were being pushed out due to the “MEDICARE CLOCK” that ALL hospitals who accept Medicare payments run under.)

Great advice! Definitely, the social worker and case manager are not your friends. They are there to get patients discharged, or worse (by placing them on “palliative care,” which is a euphemism for hospice, etc.).

RDS

Remind me to relate at some point how I dealt with a hospital administrator on the phone at 2AM who was trying to get my very ill father discharged later that morning.

Sad truth. Have lived it. ~Thirty years later, details still raw. Siblings and I did not know. Social worker and case manager presented themselves, as advocates for Mom. Never again.

Thanks – pushing that forward

This type of situation is right “where the rubber meets the road” for the family of the patient in the hospital. Right where the patient’s family, especially the one who has the Medical Power of Attorney, has to cut through the BULLSH!T that the hospital staff will give out in order to “keep their butts clean” with the hospital administration. IMO, it’s imperative to let any hospital staff that any member of the patient’s family speaks with (especially hospital administrators and case managers/social workers) know that the family WILL NOT TOLERATE their hospitalized loved one getting “tossed out” due to the “MEDICARE CLOCK.” Yes, one has to be polite and NON-confrontational (the hospital staff has the option to call security / the police, to “escort one out”, in which case it’s VERY HARD to get back INTO the hospital to see the loved one) — but FIRM.
Yours Truly learned quickly, the hard way, to TAKE COPIOUS NOTES when talking to hospital staff. Don’t let them talk at “used-car salesman speed.” Get them to REPEAT things so it can be written down in one’s notes. And — the notes one takes STAY WITH THAT PERSON — never give them or “lend them” to any hospital staff member.
Having said all the above — there HAVE been hospital staff that Yours Truly dealt with who were helpful, who went out of their way to do all they could, and so on. Those personnel were worth their weight in gold.

Great advice.

Learn so much here.

Wish I had known this stuff, ~thirty years ago.

So much going on! Prayers for you and your loved ones. 🙏 It’s shameful that hospital care has become a battleground. Thank you for the links, too. Hoping and praying for the best for you all.

Sorry you are going through this, michael. RDS is spot on from my point of view. Praying for an acceptable resolution and healing.

BOISE, Idaho —  At a private fundraiser in the middle of Donald Trump’s America, California Gov. Gavin Newsom was on a mission to help President Biden.
Newsom, who hit the road during the Fourth of July holiday weekend, told a group of roughly 50 Democrats gathered in the backyard of a mansion overlooking the Boise foothills Saturday to make the “powerful case for why we should be passionate, enthusiastic about Biden’s reelection.”
At a time when states like Idaho, where registered Republicans outnumber Democrats by more than 4 to 1, are enacting laws to restrict abortion, gay rights and advance other culturally divisive pillars of the GOP agenda, Newsom said only one man could be trusted to turn the tide: Biden.

Head of the NATO military committee, Admiral Rob Bauer:

 “About 40,000 troops are on standby from Estonia in northern Romania on the Black Sea.

Under its new plans, NATO aims to have up to 300,000 troops ready for the eastern flank within 30 days .

Bauer emphasizes that all the plans of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and NATO cannot fully take into account the ability of the Russians to turn the plans of the enemy on its head

“We must never underestimate the Russians and their ability to respond”

(but NATO isn’t part of the conflict….)

Cuppa Covfefe

yet…

kalbokalbs

Bauer is a dumbass.

“…NATO cannot fully take into account the ability of the Russians to turn the plans of the enemy on its head.”

Russia ALREADY has plans, contingencies in-place, to deal with NATO.

Russia knows exactly where major NATO forces are.

Russia already knows key logistics nodes, enabling sustainment.

Russia knows NATO, “Centers Of Gravity”…weak links…

NATO engaging Russia is on par with the US engaging Chyna, over Taiwan.

  • Fools errand, doomed for failure.
  • Nuclear all too likely with NATO / Russia fight.
  • Nuclear NOT likely with US / Chyna fight. IMO.

Good grief. Buried way down in the story, info about the 24-year-old firefighter who died in France yesterday, trying to extinguish a fire, this appears:

“Sunday night, Dorian Damelincourt, a young fireman reportedly died of heart attack as he tried to extinguish a fierce blaze in an underground parking garage in the suburb of Saint-Denis, just north of Paris.

“Overnight, while fighting against a blaze involving several vehicles in an underground car park in Saint-Denis, a young Corporal-Chief of the Paris Fire Brigade died despite very rapid treatment by his teammates,” said Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin.”

Of course, there is no mention of the fucking jab.

Maybe I’m dense, but I’ve never heard of a heart attack as a result of smoke inhalation, especially for someone so young…

If the WEFfenSS GEBs can’t kill them by war, they’ll kill them by the clot-shot and the slab-jab….. 😡 😡 😡 😡

Wonder what they’re REALLY talking about at the EU and WEF meetings…

kalbokalbs

Enclosed space, including garages, fireman should absolutely be wearing self contained breathing apparatus. Standard practice.

  • Can’t see smoke inhalation, a factor.

Quite stressful fighting a fire, in particular in enclosed spaces and it IS DARK.

However, heart attack on its own, NOT likely.

>>> Jab induced heart damage, heart attack. We all know it, until proven otherwise.

Fire aside, we don’t know where the heathen muzzies were, in relation to the garage fire.

RDS

IMO, JAB-related unless otherwise proven.
Accumulated cardiovascular damage to the heart walls and the aorta from the “vaccine.”
May the deceased rest in eternal Peace, and may his family find comfort.

Aubergine

I agree.

India starts paying for Russian oil in yuan – Reuters

“According to the sources, India’s biggest buyer of Russian crude, Indian Oil Corp, became the first state refiner to pay for some Russian purchases in yuan last month. At least two of India’s three private refiners are also paying for some Russian imports in yuan, two other sources claimed.

“Some refiners are paying in other currencies like yuan if banks are not willing to settle trade in dollars,” an unnamed Indian government source was quoted as saying.

The sources noted it could not immediately be determined how much Russian oil Indian refiners have bought with yuan, adding that Indian Oil has paid in renminbi for multiple cargoes.

Indian officials have not supported the measures against Moscow adopted by the West in response to the conflict in Ukraine. Though New Delhi decided not to take part in the restrictions, Indian banks and financial institutions remain cautious about clearing payments so as not to unintentionally fall foul of other measures introduced against Russia.”
