Dear KMAG: 20240115 Joe Biden Didn’t Win ❀ Open Topic

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!

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.

Wolfie’s Wheatie’s Word of the Week:



  1. In the state of mind where one voluntarily accepts a specific risk.
  2. Willing.
  3. In Latin: wishing, willing, welcome.
  4. Primarily a legal term.
  5. Part of another term, nolens volens (willing or unwilling; willy-nilly).

In law, volens is a state of mind, referring to voluntary acceptance of a specific risk. It is usually pleaded by way of defense, and often employs the legal Latin volenti non fit injuria. The term volens itself is often used in contradistinction to the terms sciens (meaning mere knowledge of the risk, without any voluntary assumption of it).

History of the term

The earliest known use of the adjective volens is in the 1870s. OED’s earliest evidence for volens is from 1872, in Law Journal . volens is a borrowing from Latin.

Exemplary legal usage

Sanjeet Singh Kaila vs Union Of India And Another [2nd May 2017]

In this case it was said that the risk may arise from a defect in a machine which the servant has engaged to work of such a nature that his personal danger and consequent injury must be produced by his own act, If he clearly foresaw the likelihood of such a result, and, not withstanding, continued to work, I think that, according to the authorities, he ought to be regarded as volens. The case may be very different when there is no inherent peril in the work performed by the servant, and the risk to which he is exposed arises from a defect in the machine used in another department over which he has no control.(emphasis supplied)


Start off with some super-classic country re-done by the next generation – twenty years ago.

I always liked Lee Ann, as part of “90’s country” which is currently held in some kind of classic esteem, but which seemed edgy and modern to us back then!

Let’s jump forward ten years to 2014, looking back again.

OK – we’re back to the present, with a recent recording of current country music. It’s poppy, but still very listenable.

Any classic rock fans out there? If so, check out this gigantic medley of Rush tropes to create one massive intro.

I was led to this song from last week’s bagpipe video. Weirdest fusion of genres (Punjabi and Scot) in forever. Then add rap music and stunning visuals. Enjoy!


Yup. The left takes over everything, including Community Notes. “Note” how Milloy has to preemptively defend against abuse.

Some ‘hottest year in 125,000 years’. Just in from

@NOAA: Despite 550 billion tons of global emissions, the US was cooler in 2023 than 2012. So every emission warms the planet except for the US?


Note for

@CommunityNotes censors: My red line is not a trend line. It’s just a line to show that 2023 was cooler than 2012.

Let’s just save that image.

Milloy is using a very effective tactic to make people understand the most basic science – cause and effect. He’s showing that people are right to suspect there is no correlation between what the Climate Commies say affects climate, and reality.

We would expect to see direct connections, but we don’t. Why not? They will have answers, but the answers will ultimately fail to convince, as Occam’s Razor is repeatedly violated by hand-waving excuses and Rube Goldberg alibis, rather than pleasingly straightforward and multi-explanatory science.

Now let’s look at the COVID lies.

Note that Avril Haines is an Obama Girl – one of the Furies – or Harpies as I like to call them. The other two are Susan Rice and Lisa Monaco, also running the country. They’re part of the plot that runs Dementia Hitler as an avatar for Obola, who’s really behind what’s happening to America.

How about something angelic, instead of demonic?


Let’s just save that image, shall we…..

Speaking of SMOKING CRACK…..

Thank God this is America. And keep thanking God if you want to keep it that way.

Meanwhile, the old false gods are crawling out of the grave….

Just sayin’!

Until victory, have faith!

And trust the big plan, too!

And as always….

New Schlichter —

Still a would-be anti-Trumper, but he’s coming around as the election gets nearer.

Gail Combs

I am sure Trump already has picks for all the offices plus alternates.


Schlichter makes no sense to me. He likes bomb-thrower Kari Lake, but not Trump?

Nikki Haley for VP is just stupid.

FBI Director should NOT be Pompeo.

Personally, I think that most of the bureaucrats in DC need to be shit-canned and not replaced, so whomever is in charge of all departments needs to be fantastic at saying two words:

“You’re fired.”

Gail Combs

I think POTUS Trump has a long list of possible bureaucrat replacements from the military personnel who took one look at the Clot Shot and said a very loud HELL NO! and quit.

Most encouraging is Ivan Raiklin even talks about these people having the goal of going after local, federal, state elected seats from dog catcher and sheriff on up.

…we don’t need a Faux Barry.

Which is how Vivek strikes me. He shouldn’t have been running for POTUS anyway. He is not qualified, and he should have been supporting Trump for president while fighting the 2020 steal.

But that aside, he weaseled his way into MAGA by saying the right things, then, instead of gracefully bowing out and throwing his support behind Trump, he reveals that his strategy was to ingratiate himself with Trump supporters so he could convince them that Trump has too much baggage while Vivek is the new shiny thing in the model of the founding fathers. In other words, wait long enough and see how the lawsuits against Trump play out, then pounce and present himself as a substitute for Trump. Since it’s time for the caucuses and primaries to begin, Vivek has to go ahead and play his hand, which denigrates Trump in a humiliating way by basically saying he’s washed up.

He arrogantly says he can “save Trump.” I wouldn’t vote for him for county commissioner, let alone POTUS. Tim Pool needs to wake up.

I can’t think of one time when I’ve seen comments about something Vivek said that was spot on, that the commenter didn’t qualify their admiration by saying, “I don’t trust the guy, but…” There’s a reason for that. People can sense that something is off, in addition to knowing about his background.


comment image


But I don’t trust Shiva either…


It’s funny, people think of Hindus as gentle pacifist ascetics like Gandhi held himself out to be.

Roll back a couple of centuries, and fighting Hindus was no fun — these guys thought they would be reincarnated, maybe next week, based on how well they killed their foes today.

In a bad neighborhood, Hindus were hardcore. If the Brits weren’t as talented as they were in diplomatic backstabbing, they might never have conquered the subcontinent.

Neither do I. If I recall Shiva was from the ‘Untouchable’ lowest Caste.

This hierarchal inheritance-based class (Caste) system you describe above, comes from the disgusting British racist divide and conquer strategy. (They classified some people into different castes, based on the length of their nose and other race-based features)

They took what was called the Vedic Varna system, which was not an inheritance system **, but a merit-based one. and twisted it together with the Jati system (a Guilde-based one) into the Caste system. Many Indians did not even know which Jati or Varna they belonged to at the time.
Caste comes from Spanish and means Class. British society with their Monarchy can even today be described as a Caste/Class system. The name Caste was introduced by the Portuguese, who misunderstood this Varna system for their inheritance class-based system, which was very common in European societies.

Unfortunately, the post-independence British educated (indoctrinated – who William Jones called ‘Brown in complexion but British in taste’) leaders, like Nehru and Gandhi, in their ‘wisdom’ perpetuated this system by enshrining the ‘Scheduled Classes and Tribes’ in the constitution to supposedly help the ‘lower caste’ and ‘neglected tribes’.
What it however really meant is that it allowed institutions and politicians to actually discriminate against the other castes, in perpetuity, under the disguise of helping the former discriminated, instead of getting rid of the system in its entirety and return back to a merit-based system.

**Shudras and other Varnas could become Brahmins if they had an aptitude of transmitting/retaining and teaching knowledge eg. Veda Vyasa who composed the Mahabharat and categorized the Vedic knowledge system into the 4 Vedas we know today, came from a Shudra family.
A Brahmin who couldn’t do this was demoted to a different Varna.

Brahmins generally were also not priests, as is implied these days by calling Brahmins the Priesthood.
The Brahmins were in fact often the poorest and needed to beg for their food (The idea behind this, during the Vedic times, was to prevent them to take advantage of their knowledge and sell it to the highest bidder)
The richest people in India were not even the Kshatriyas (essentially the people who were in control of the government like the kings and queens), but the Vaishyas, who got their wealth by trading.

Thanks for the added info.

“…British society with their Monarchy can even today be described as a Caste/Class system…”

I found that to be very very true when I visited England. While in Germany I caved with a couple of groups of English cavers. Later when I took a vacation in England I found that two of the groups I knew, were in the same village but would not talk to each other because they were not of the same ‘class’ One was working class and the other management/technical college educated.

They also refer to us as colonials… HMMmm

Gail Combs

Shiva echoed what I said yseterday about Vivek.


Vivek behaves as if he is above everyone. He thinks we are stupid.
I agree with others he is a plant to fool us to derail Trump and pull us away from him. Younger people are impressed with Vivek maybe it is the age they relate too maybe his sharp tongue and the wit he displays.
He speaks what we all know about the swamp and just spills it out but it is as if this is the last ditch of the deep state to disconnect Trump’s voters from him. I am glad Trump sees through him.

pat frederick

he has the obama disdain for the “little people”


Yes he does and an Napoleon complex 🙂


‘Zionist hoodlum’ puts this commenter in my No Intrinsic Value folder.



Brave and Free

I agree with you about Vivek.

You could substitute Rob into this statement too, IMO he’s playing the same game.

he reveals that his strategy was to ingratiate himself with Trump supporters so he could convince them that Trump has too much baggage while Vivek is the new shiny thing in the model of the founding fathers. In other words, wait long enough and see how the lawsuits against Trump play out, then pounce and present himself as a substitute for Trump

Rob tried to be PDJT 2.0 in Florida and it worked until he got on the campaign trail and he fell off his boots.


fell off his boots” 😂


“Rob tried to be PDJT 2.0 in Florida and it worked until he got on the campaign trail and he fell off his boots.”



Vivek is a parrot. He is able to repeat what we all know and make it seem it is his idea.


Spelling B 2.0


I am happy you are a good speller 🙂


Vivek is not even pan B.

Trump may decide to use Vivek, which is fine.


If Trump has control over him, maybe.

John Benison, the Assistant Administrator, Office of Civil Rights will be in charge of implementing the FAA’s DEI plan.

comment image

Benison, whose official title is as Assistant Administrator, Office of Civil Rights, ‘is responsible for assuring equal opportunity, and diversity precepts within the FAA’ with his officer overseeing all ‘civil rights, equal opportunity, and diversity matters.’


It appears at first glance Mr Benison has a very narrow view of the world. When it gets that narrow I think we call it myopic.



Cuppa Covfefe

He looks like a bug.

Just like Klaus Satan Stavros Schwab…

Whose WEFfenSS start their meeting in Davos today…. and it’s snowing like mad, fancy that. Hope it RAINS there. Fire and brimstone… or meteors… or both…..  🔥

Eyes too close together.


They’re not even looking the same direction.

Gail Combs

Well that is one way to make sure the people Great Unwashed quit flying unless their corporation forces them too.

All part of the Green New Deal which is even worse that TRAITOR FDR’s New Deal.

Brave and Free

I think they already accomplished that with their diversity hiring. Men who think they’re women, men who steal luggage…..

Gail Combs

Pilots forced to have the clot shot who now can not pass the ORIGINAL heart health screening. THEREFORE the STANDARDS HAD TO BE LOWERED. Not enough pilots so you get rid of the Co-pilot who might be able to fly the plane when the Clot Shot makes the pilot drop dead….

DIE hires that DO NOT DO Aircraft maintenance correctly, or at all….


Oh pshaw that covers the mental illness slots but they’re so many other areas that can use……….fta….”Targeted disabilities are those disabilities that the Federal government, as a matter of policy, has identified for special emphasis in recruitment and hiring,” the FAA’s website states. “They include hearing, vision, missing extremities, partial paralysis, complete paralysis, epilepsy, severe intellectual disability, psychiatric disability and dwarfism.”~~~


I’m feeling prophetic.

Dateline; Sometime in the Future News:

A tragedy occurred earlier today, when a 747 Jumbo Jet, manufactured by Blind, Deaf, and Dumb Industries, Inc., and specially modified for its epileptic, retarded, dwarf pilot, crashed in a cornfield in Iowa.

Passengers were able to get a few messages out as the plane went down. Many stated that just as the plane began to fall out of the sky, the sociopathic and psychopathic flight attendants started to slash the throats of passengers, screaming “I want to kill just one more before I die!”

In other news, the cross-eyed guy in charge of the FAA’s Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity program was quoted as saying “today was a stellar day in the improvement of America’s commitment to the inclusion of any and every handicapped individual, regardless of the outcomes and loss of innocent life.”

Gail Combs

Another reason to NOT enter a US airport.

Done with all of it.

pat frederick

that’s the point, isn’t it?
they don’t WANT you to WANT to fly but if they said that, Americans with their screw you attitudes, would fly anyway or even more. this way it seems like YOUR choice.


Absolutely. Their plan, which is nothing short of evil.

Additionally. My perspective goes further back…

I swore off flying within the US, when I retired in 2015. Would NOT fly in US for personal travel. International, last year.

  • When I was working, if our destination was 800 miles or less, we drove.. More reliable than airlines. Travel time commonly similar.

All the diversity bullshit aside. Long list of reasons to NOT fly.

  • TSA – grope and feel. Long lines. Intrusion on privacy. Disrespecting elderly and handicap.
  • Airlines. Rude employees at check-in, gate… Waiting areas akin to corralling animals. Seating, if available sucks. Small seats. Additional fees to check luggage. Don’t care about Southwest free luggage, with their asinine seating policy. Flights late. Airlines not giving accurate flight delay information. Freebee app FlightAware is commonly more accurate than airlines. Airline food, on a good day sucks. Airline food cost extra?
  • Flying public. Incredibly rude, inconsiderate and self-centered. I don’t care about informal dress. Clean is all that really matters.
Gail Combs

Grope – N – Fly was the last straw for me.

When you are retired (And do not have lots of livestock) you can take your time and ENJOY this wonderful country we have.

My parents and I drove from NY to CA and back in 3 weeks. We stopped every few hundred miles and went sight seeing. That was almost 50 years ago and it is still one of the highlights of my life.

Cuppa Covfefe

Yep. We drove from CA to WV every year but one in the 1960s and early 1970s, around four days each way, stopping at all sorts of interesting places. The last time, in 1972, we took five weeks and went to (it seemed) every national park on the way.

Gas was still relatively cheap, as was food and lodging (though nowhere near as cheap as in the early 1960s), and the education those trips provided was beyond compare, especially when one considers the perverted pablum foisted on today’s students…

TONS of pictures, souvenirs, guide books (AAA and NAC and others)… And, of course Stuckey’s Pecan Log Rolls 🙂 … sigh…

Gail Combs

We hauled a tent trailer and stayed in State and National parks.

The only time I have stayed in a hotel it was with a group and we generally convinced the hotel owner to cut us a deal since we showed up late in the evening in off season.

Having tents is a really great bargaining tool when the lady in the group pipes up. “TOO EXPENSIVE, LET’S CAMP OUT.

The guy on the right has tree climbing gear. The guy in the middle has a coil of static climbing rope (I was given some by lumberjacks I know. They replace it regularly but the used rope makes fine lead ropes for ponies.)

If you look at the far left, there is a pulley with a rope and bucket.

From yesterday:


On Amazon Flex drivers replacing full time employees. 

“…One pair though I’m a bit concerned with. Normally flex drivers work alone, but I have these two middle age guys of fighting age that are not American that drive together in a beat up old car...f I was going to lead an op into such an environment as mine I’d like to get to know the lay of the land. This is what I suspect…”

They are also collecting all the CODES to enter gated properties!

Pgroup2 Replies:

“Only in Ukraine are military aged guys the same as middle aged guys.”

However commanders are usually middle age. Also those over 25 are going to have a fully developed brain and more restraint. They are much less likely to call attention to themselves.

Now add in this:

van on Bards of War (Scott) podcast 1/6/2023

Scott drops a really nasty 😡BOMB😡 at 1:16:00

Unfortunately it confirms something that I have had in the back of my mind.
Scott (Bards of War):

“…Why I think this letter is so dangerous. Flynn himself has stated every single one of these congressman is blackmailed because they do these codels. => Sex with children.

But I am going to read this to you because it is another level of darkness that they are afraid of being exposed.

“This coming for a better life, is our new ‘Safe and Effective; Mega-Lie. IT IS A COORDINATED MILITARY OPERATION. It is not the first time in history a government has hired an army when they knew the citizens would unite against the their own government.”

Here is the deal. These flow of fighting age males and the replacement strategy 

of trying to sterilize and kill off a nation and bring in people who would birth their way in that know nothing of our Constitution. Providing them fast track to citizenship. THESE MILITARY DEFENCE CONTRACTORS ARE CURRENTLY SIGNING IN INK, AFTER CONTRACTS FOR MOVING THESE PEOPLE INTO THE COUNTRY, aND ARE NOW SIGNING THE INK CONTRACTS — AND IT IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW — TO FLY THEM OUT WHEN THERE IS A CHANGE IN LEADERSHIP.

These people are the scum of the earth. There is no possible way this organization, with the ability to move people using private ports of entry, using at night cover. Getting big bus companies to silence their people from speaking. There is no way that did not happen without MASSIVE coordination and massive compliance. That includes unions… We are talking about a level of corruption in this that will blow most peoples minds.

And so what I think, when we start talking about a letter that says accountability with 231 signatures [now 18,463] A letter that should not rock the world….


I stand by my comment – fighting age males [17-25] does not equal middle age [37-54] males. Except in today’s Ukraine.

Gail Combs

Pew Research says. The average age of U.S. military members is slightly over 27 for enlistees, 👉while officers average 34.5 years of age. This is partly because the military has raised the age limits for joining over the years to 👉attract more experienced, mature individuals…

We are dealing with a sample size of ONE here and someone’s estimate of age.

People think I am 10 – 20 years younger than I am.

People who have spend a lot of time in the sun without proper skin care and nutrition are going to look a lot older than they actually are.

I have seen sun worshiping women in their late 20s who look 40. A friend who is decades younger than I is often thought to be my sister.


Why are we arguing this? Lots of people have [and will continue to] described the flood across the border as ‘military aged males’. As you have stated, even the US average is 27yo. In Ukraine, it is a unique 47yo.

Which group is middle aged? I say the latter is middle aged. If the former group is middle aged, is the latter group elderly?

I don’t get it. Maybe I’m just a hopeless geezer [over 70yo].


It also appears to me that the Jab accelerates aging. I noticed on my Ca trip and celebrity types lately.

50-Year-Old Wash. Man Rescued After Getting Trapped Underneath 1,500-Pound Bale of Hay

A Washington man has miraculously survived after authorities said he became trapped underneath a 1,500-pound bale of hayAuthorities said the man did not have permission to be on the hay owner’s property and had not purchased the hay…

Well it IS Iowa…



Today’s hay bales do not resemble the ones I tossed onto the flatbed when I was 14-15yo. 75 pounds if they were dried; 90+ if they were wet.

Those were the days – I was young and strong.

Some think this term describes what RamaSWAMPY is doing.

Ratfucking — political dictionary com

“Ratfucking” is the art of carrying out dirty tricks and crafty maneuvers, usually in the name of winning an election.

Originating from slang used in political circles, the term captures a wide range of activities that could include disseminating false information or even legal but ethically questionable maneuvers like voter suppression.

Origin of “Ratfucking”

The term dates back to the 1960s, when a young man named Donald Segretti was a student at the University of Southern California. Segretti described himself as a “fraternity rat” and got heavily involved in frathouse politics.

He called his brand of take-no-prisoners politicking, which involved ballot stuffing, rumoro-mongering, and other pranks, was termed “ratfucking.”..

Funny, I went to ‘SC and sometimes folks would speak of “RF-ing” someone… never knew that the term originated there. Although, looking back at the HUGE school of International Relations, it was probably a hotbed of RINOs even then…

Ice cores from the Freemont Glacier show it went from Little Ice Age cold to Modern Warming warm in the ten years between 1845 and 1855. Naturally. German inventor Karl Benz is credited with inventing the first true automobile in 1885 so it wasn’t cars that caused the warming.🤔


An ice core removed from the Upper Fremont Glacier in Wyoming provides evidence for abrupt climate change during the mid-1800s….

At a depth of 152 m the refined age-depth profile shows good agreement (1736±10 A.D.) with the 14C age date (1729±95 A.D.). The δ18O profile of the Upper Fremont Glacier (UFG) ice core indicates a change in climate known as the Little Ice Age (LIA)….

<b>At this depth, the age-depth profile predicts an age of 1845 A.D. Results indicate the termination of the LIA was abrupt with a major climatic shift to warmer temperatures around 1845 A.D. and continuing to present day.</b> Prediction limits (error bars) calculated for the profile ages are ±10 years (90% confidence level). <b>Thus a conservative estimate for the time taken to complete the LIA climatic shift to present-day climate is about 10 years, suggesting the LIA termination in alpine regions of central North America may have occurred on a relatively short (decadal) timescale.</b>

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change gives 1.5 W/m 2 for the forcing of anthropogenic CO2 [cf., Reid, 1997].

During the Holocene solar energy reached a summer maximum (9% higher than at present) ~11 ka ago. 9% higher is ~ 122 W/m 2 or 100 times the forcing of anthropogenic CO2.

The sealevel Highstand was 1.5 to 2.0 meters higher than present between 3.5 and 6.0 ka ago.

Over the long term glaciers are growing.

Why ever do you want to DECREASE CO2, the only possible blanket the earth has away at the tail end of the Holocene especially when research shows Carbon starvation in glacial trees recovered from the La Brea tar pits, southern California


I do not have Twatter so someone might want to lay a few ACTUAL FACTS as an answer to that guys gaslighting.

Cuppa Covfefe

Not forgetting that “John-Cooked-the-books” climastrologists are cooling the past and warming the present… And we’re at the second-lowest level of CO² “ever” (ice cores, etc., hopefully not Briffa’s trees)…

Somehow the faulty, evil “science” behind Gore-Bull warming has to be demonstrably, convincingly, clearly, and understandably refuted. Permanently.

As that is the Satan-spawn basis upon which all the other pseudo-scientific lies are based, COVIDIOCY being just one of them. The gangGreen grab…

Gail Combs

It is my theory that the Cabal wants to depopulate humanity back to 0.5 to 2 million.

They want to SAVE coal and oil to provide CO2 for green houses as the oceans cool and suck all the CO2 back out of the air.

WHY? Because they know darn well we are going into either the very bumpy climatic ride between two interglacial peaks (slim chance) OR taking a nose dive into glaciation.

The onset of the Little Ice Age, just after the Medieval Warm Period, was right when the Holocene reached the half precession point, the correct timing for glacial inception. The Modern Warm Period caused by the Grand Solar Maximum has now ended.

The onset of the LEAP occurred within less than two decades, demonstrating the existence of a sharp threshold, which must be near 416 Wm2, …Insolation will remain at this level slightly above the glacial inception for the next 4,000 years before it then increases again.”


That is a heck of a long time to be sitting on the edge of a cliff waiting for other factors to push the earth into glaciation.

Yesterday I posted papers indicating volcanoes are correlated to solar minimums.

And then there is this from the paper Can we predict the duration of an interglacial?

I extracted the 21 June solar insolation @ 65◦ N for several glacial inceptions:

NOW (Modern Warm Period) 479 W m−2

MIS 7e – insolation = 463 W m−2,
MIS 11c – insolation = 466 W m−2,
MIS 13a – insolation = 500 W m−2,
MIS 15a – insolation = 480 W m−2,
MIS 17 – insolation = 477 W m−2,

🧵 1. Those who enter the U.S. without papers and apply for asylum are supposed to be detained until their claims can be adjudicated. That doesn’t happen under Biden.
2. Biden gives them a plane ticket, a work permit, and a mild suggestion that they show up for their immigration hearing, which might take place sometime in the mid-2030s.
3. This works out nicely for the drug cartels, who make billions of dollars smuggling millions humans into the United States, turning them into indentured servants and in some cases subjecting them to sex slavery. It’s really bad for everyone outside the drug-cartel world.
4. Biden speaks as though he’s the victim of our asylum laws—suggesting that he has no choice but to handle asylum applications this way, and that he has no power to restrict the flow of illegal immigrants without a change in law. That’s simply not true.
5. The president and DHS secretary have full discretion to stop processing asylum applications whenever they choose, as the asylum laws say they “may” grant asylum applications when the conditions are met. There is no “shall” language.
6. They should certainly stop processing those applications whenever they run out of bed space or timely processing capacity.
7. Asylum laws are not a border-specific suicide pact. We should stop thinking of them as if they were.

Worth the six minutes folks, this guy is such bad news.

Oh, and the Nano-Particles he sold? That was the component in the Vaxx that created those long white fibrous clots within arteries and vessels that coroner’s were freaking out about, not to mention people were dying over.

He’s also a Tech-Inside-You kind of guy, CBDC under your skin. WTH?

Oh, and the bit about supposedly being involuntarily drafted by the WEF and having to fight to get his name out of their website? Yeah, he was using that relationship as a selling point during his highly improbable wheeling and dealing in windfall riches, he was in their club, conducted panels there, profited of of it, and was promptly and politely removed with an apology from them when it was time to play spoiler I mean American I mean MAGA.

Not only are taxes waaay too high, that isn’t enough money for The Evils. They go and spend money we don’t have and yet to earn, then tell us we owe that money.

A $2T deficit means they spent $2T we don’t have. They put it on our ‘charge card’, They billed us for it. With a population of 350M, that is $3000 for every man, woman and child in the USA, spent and billed to us IN THIS YEAR ALONE! When you break it down to actual tax payers and wage earners, the $3000 basically doubles! That money is above and beyond the taxes you paid!

I’d love to see REALPOTUS add a balanced budget requirement to his policy list.

I rather see him CLOSE THE FED and the Bankster Banks, declare the ‘loans’ null and void. BECAUSE THERE IS NO CONSIDERATION. AND claw back all the REAL WEALTH from these SOBs.



No consideration no Contract : A legally binding contract needs consideration as it is a vital element. So, a valid contract does not exist without consideration. We know that by promise one party give or sacrifice something and other party take something. This type of give and take or sacrifice is called consideration by law. If someone promises without any consideration that is called gift. On the other hand give premise exchange of any consideration that is called contract. So it is clearly seen that to become a valid agreement we need to consider its materiality and the level of voidable.

An agreement made without consideration is void unless it is expressed in writing and registered under the law for the time being in force for the registration of documents and is made on account if natural love and affection between the parties standing in near relation to each other. Agreement must be in writing and registered. If you have an oral arrangement or unregistered agreement although it is in writing, it will not be valid even though it proceeds from natural love and affection and even if the parties to it are near relations to each other. It must be both in writing and registered….

Well we certainly have NO LOVE for the Fed or the banksters. 😋


Those lawyers are in Bangladesh.

Click on the about tab and enjoy their attitude.


The Fed Banks that make up the system are all privately owned. Bankrupt them at the appropriate time. The holders of the debt (bonds) claw back on the assets. Banksters that are apart of the national system go down. Run on the banks occurs if alternative are not already in place. Crypto, gold and silver goes crazy.

Credit unions win. Joe Lange’s state public banks win. The Postal Service banking wins. The Swamp loses. Congress loses. Globalists lose. Lobbyists lose. Clowns lose. Average Americans eventually win big.

No personal incomes taxes is the end result with no market bubbles manipulated by scum balls. War pigs die out.


For every 1% Federal spending is in deficit, 1% of the legislators who vote for it should be burned at the stake. Would fix the problem right up.

Robert Baker

Thank You, Jesus, for blessings received and prayers answered !!!



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.

Old 2016 comment.

…Lawyer-Client privilege means law firms are a great way to launder/hide where funds are actually coming from? That it maybe Soros or someone else who is actually footing the bills and not this law firm?

That this Lawyer-Client privilege also allows the rich to get around campaign finance laws limiting donations to $2,700?

Several eons ago in 2008 I looked at the contributions to several politicians and was struck by just how many lawyers and law firms donated. I swear it looked like 50% or more. In many cases the law firm and then each individual lawyer would donate. It was not possible to check how many wives, kids, cats and dogs did too. (Remember many law firms now are dual function law and lobbyists.)

In a quicky look I couldn’t find an example however the BBC did it for me.

…There have been few candidates more criticised for where their campaign contributions come from than former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. With Bernie Sanders continually questioning the influence of Wall Street on politics, her ties to big banks have been a liability.

Though she has received a significant amount from bankers, she has raised even more from lawyers.

The Clinton campaign has taken in $11m from lawyers and law firms, including $1.33m from individuals who work at seven of the top US law firms. By contrast she has received just over $4m from the commercial banking and investment industries. ….

Seems Hitlery found other ways to cheat on the individual cap on campaign funds.

KlauSS not happy that the rubes are revolting against “Ze Ssysstem”

Gail Combs

Interesting that he goes with Libertarianism. Any Rand viewed them with contempt because they are not realistic. They completely ignore the Thugs on horseback, or in this case boats.

The Brief Life and Watery Death of a 1970s Libertarian Utopia

Once upon a time, a wealthy man set out to establish his own country. He found a shallow reef over which the waters of a vast ocean had lapped since time immemorial. He hired a company to dredge the ocean floor and deposit the sand on the reef. An island would be born, upon which the man had a concrete platform built, a flag planted, and the birth of the Republic of Minerva declared. The monarch of a nearby island kingdom was not impressed. He opened the doors of his kingdom’s one jail and assembled a small army of prisoners. The monarch, his convicts, and a four-piece brass band boarded the royal yacht and descended upon the reef, where they promptly removed the flag, destroyed the platform, and deposed, in absentia, the man who would be king. And Minerva returned to the ocean….

Experiments in libertarian exit—abandoning one’s country of residence for a private territory where social relationships are structured largely through contract and exchange—like the one Michael Oliver undertook were not unusual in the America of the 1960s and 1970s. They proved common enough that writers for the Los Angeles–based libertarian Innovator Magazine priced out the costs of various forms of exit, from “clandestine urban” and “underground shelter” to “sea-mobile nomad.”…


Schwab talks about “the system” as if it were a well-established, respected organism. But it’s just something his ilk created to alter the REAL system of how human beings have lived and operated for centuries, in order to benefit the “elites” who have placed themselves above everyone else and who think they know better than God how the universe should operate. “The system” is his dream which of course needs to be resisted and destroyed.

I just heard on Badlands the RePukes have another trick up their sleeve to cancel Trump. RANK CHOICE VOTING. This bytw is why they are floating so many candidates and encouraging DemonRats to cross over. We saw this in 2016. Sundance detailed it.

So I went to take a look.

In 2024, there are an estimated 2,429 delegates2,325 pledged delegates and 104 unpledged delegates.

To win the Republican nomination, a presidential candidate must receive support from a majority of delegates—an estimated 1,215 delegates.,_2024

Following the pointer:

Delegate selection and allocation
“Delegates are individuals chosen to represent their state at their party’s national nominating convention. Republican delegates may be selected in a variety of ways, including through elections, by the Republican state committee, by state or congressional district conventions, or by virtue of a leadership position within the state’s Republican Party.

There are three primary methods used to allocate Republican delegates (which means to bind them to vote for a certain candidate on at least the first ballot at the national convention):[2]

  • Proportional: States using this method either allocate all their delegates proportionally to the candidates based on the statewide vote or they allocate at-large delegates proportionally based on the statewide vote and congressional district delegates proportionally based on the vote at the district level.
  • Winner-take-all: States using this method allocate all their delegates to the candidate who receives a plurality of votes in the primary election or caucus.
  • Hybrid: The Republican National Committee describes hybrid allocation methods as those that combine other methods. Some states award at-large delegates on a winner-take-all basis according to the statewide vote and congressional district delegates on a winner-take-all basis according to the vote within the districts. Some states directly elect delegates, who are usually bound to a particular candidate on the ballot.

Most Republican delegate allocation rules are set by state parties and state laws, though the Republican National Committee sets some rules that states must comply with. Delegates bound by primaries or caucuses held before March 15 must be allocated proportionally to candidates, either based on the statewide vote or the vote at the congressional district level. States using proportional allocation are, however, allowed to establish a minimum threshold, up to 20 percent, below which a candidate does not qualify for any proportionally allocated delegates. States may also set a threshold of at least 50 percent above which a candidate receives all delegates.[3]
The map below shows a summary of Republican delegate allocation methods by state in the 2020 presidential election.[1]…”

There is an interactive map so go to the page to see it.

There are ONLY 8 states with winner take all delegates.

This comes to mind, for you are Blessed!

Isaiah 54
New International Version
The Future Glory of Zion
“Sing, barren woman,
    you who never bore a child;
burst into song, shout for joy,
    you who were never in labor;
because more are the children of the desolate woman
    than of her who has a husband,”
says the Lord.

“Enlarge the place of your tent,
    stretch your tent curtains wide,
    do not hold back;
lengthen your cords,
    strengthen your stakes.

For you will spread out to the right and to the left;
    your descendants will dispossess nations
    and settle in their desolate cities.

“Do not be afraid; you will not be put to shame.
    Do not fear disgrace; you will not be humiliated.
You will forget the shame of your youth
    and remember no more the reproach of your widowhood.

For your Maker is your husband—
    the Lord Almighty is his name—
the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer;
    he is called the God of all the earth.

The Lord will call you back
    as if you were a wife deserted and distressed in spirit—
a wife who married young,
    only to be rejected,” says your God.

“For a brief moment I abandoned you,
    but with deep compassion I will bring you back.

In a surge of anger
    I hid my face from you for a moment,
but with everlasting kindness
    I will have compassion on you,”
    says the Lord your Redeemer.

“To me this is like the days of Noah,
    when I swore that the waters of Noah would never again cover the earth.
So now I have sworn not to be angry with you,
    never to rebuke you again.
Though the mountains be shaken
    and the hills be removed,
yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken
    nor my covenant of peace be removed,”
    says the Lord, who has compassion on you.
“Afflicted city, lashed by storms and not comforted,
    I will rebuild you with stones of turquoise,[a]
    your foundations with lapis lazuli.
I will make your battlements of rubies,
    your gates of sparkling jewels,
    and all your walls of precious stones.
All your children will be taught by the Lord,
    and great will be their peace.
In righteousness you will be established:
Tyranny will be far from you;
    you will have nothing to fear.
Terror will be far removed;
    it will not come near you.
If anyone does attack you, it will not be my doing;
    whoever attacks you will surrender to you.
“See, it is I who created the blacksmith
    who fans the coals into flame
    and forges a weapon fit for its work.
And it is I who have created the destroyer to wreak havoc;
    no weapon forged against you will prevail,
    and you will refute every tongue that accuses you.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
    and this is their vindication from me,”
declares the Lord.
