Spectator columnist (Chadwick Moore) got banned for speaking to others on FB like he does in real life. Then for linking his own articles published in the Spectator on Facebook. Horribly offensive things like "Rednecks are the least racist people in America" and explaining why with research by Thomas Sowell and historian Colin Woodard. Or the latest, "The death of the bulldyke" -- which while the headline is a bit edgy, the article itself is not-offensive and appreciated defense of the working class lesbians who are being overshadowed by trans women. In all these cases Facebooks appeal process is a bad joke that offers no consistency or transparency and is slower than the DMV when their computers are down. His amusing attempts to figure out his tormentors identity and limits is somewhat amusing -- but the definition of allowing some groups to use some words, but not for him, is exactly the type of bigotry that Facebook pretends to be defending against. If they got irony, they'd fix this. But then again, if they could see themselves in the mirror, they would have banned themsleves. more...
Project Veritas undercover video caught Bernie operatives (Kyle Jurek, Iowa Field Organizer, Sanders Campaign) saying things like:
  • I’m an Anarcho-communist…I'm as far left as you can possibly get...There’s a lot of me’s in the @BernieSanders campaign...
  • [Opponents] should be placed in Gulags or be put to death
  • If Bernie doesn't get nomination "Milwaukee will burn"
  • You Should Expect a Violent Reaction. And You Deserve a Violent Reaction more...

Greta's Dad (Svante Thunberg gave an interview where he claimed that Greta was depressed and unhappy until she found a cause, and that he and her Mom were against it, and this is all her, and she drives them. Of course someone that's using her as a false front for their own activism would say that too, so there's no way to know if that's true... me thinks thou doth protest too much. Then due to a Facebook update (and a bug/glitch) that showed which admin is actually editing posts, it is exposed that her Dad does the editing/updates. Greta replied to the "scandal" that she does Twitter and Instagram and an Indian guy just does the reposting to Facebook using her Dad's account. Since it's hard to know who is the puppet master, and the intellectual maturity of her tweets do match that of a teenager or climate activist, the reply is plausible. But it's also plausible that Greta is just a tool and a figurehead for her Daddy and others agenda, which might explain her anger, immaturity and depression at being a tool. And she is a tool, we just don't know who the operator is. more...

During an interview, fanatical pedophile and trans-activist Jessica Yaniv pulled out a taser and demonstrated that it worked (to the shock of the host) -- which is a crime in Canada, and she was charged. When going to court over this event, a reporter was asking the radical trans-activist an uncomfortable question for her, "would she be pleading guilty". After evading a couple times, Jessica lost her shit and assaulted the reporter for the high crime of following her and asking her again. Sorry, it sucks to be a public figure and have the press harass you -- but that's a consequence of making yourself a public figure/activist. I'd say grow a pair, but I think she still has hers. more...
AustralianFires.jpg
The media loves to sensationalize the Australian fires and blame them on Global Warming. Facts?
  • The latest 50 years are wetter than the prior 50.
  • 40% of fires are deliberately lit and 47% accidental: thus 87% are not Climate but manmade.
  • 183 people have been arrested for lighting 103 of the bushfires over the last few months.
  • Australia's firebug problem scaled up after gun confiscation (or in spite of gun control) and new poor land management polices.
Hey Climate, you're doing it wrong. The truth is that it's more a consequence of Gun Control (crime control) and poor land management. more...
It is quite common for clueless lefties that learn I have Iranian blood to question me with their Howard Zinn version of History and mentioned, "The U.S. is at fault for everything in that region, because: Mosaddegh", then give me their silly distorted version of Iranian history about the Democratically elected pro-liberty Mosaddegh, and the evil CIA that overthrew him and put in our puppet (the Shah). Of course all of that has a tiny, smidgen of almost reality in it, but it's wrapped in so many distortions and misunderstandings and errors, that's it complete garbage. In here, I explain what actually happened. more...
IranPayback.jpg
After a dozen attacks by Iran, Trump killed a really, really bad guy (that ran their terror operations). OrangeMan is bad (to the far left and their media). Thus this was a bad thing that was going to cause WWIII, and it was all our fault. Whether intentional or through blind bias/incompetence, those that railed against this action demonstrate that they are anti-American trash that would rather see America burn, or our enemies thrive, than admit Trump did something right. more...
To show you what FakeNews and how self deluded The Atlantic has become, this quote sums it up. While discussing the final demise of Tom Brady and the Patriots, Scott Stossel (National Editor) said, "He’s like Thor, or Superman, or Greta Thunberg—when everything looks lost, he arrives to save the day." Two are fantasy characters, Scoldilocks (Greta) hasn't achieved except ditching school and lecturing people that know more than her on a cause she doesn't understand, while Tom Brady actually achieved something in real life (cheating at football and cheating on his wife). Apparently the Atlantic can't tell the difference between those things. more...
After Keith Thomas Kinnunen (43) pulled out a shotgun and killed two people, Jack Wilson (71, Hero, NRA member and Trump supporter) quickly shot and killed the Texas church shooter a few seconds in, ending the confrontation and saving countless lives. The video of the event went viral because it was being live streamed and of how fast it all happened at the West Freeway Church of Christ, in White Settlement Texas (a Dallas/Fort Worth suburb). Multiple other people in the congregation had pulled guns and were prepared as well, which caused USA Today and other leftist outlets commented on how scary it was that so many churchgoers were armed and didn't die like good little proles. The shooter had a long criminal record, in multiple states, thus the gun was illegally owned (gun control didn't work). A few months ago, Democrats like Joe Biden had mocked Texas Governor Greg Abbott, for signing a bill into law that allows people in churches to be armed, preferring a much larger massacres to liberty and trusting your fellow man, this event proves them wrong. CNN and other FakeNews outlets misreported Jack Wilson as a cop -- while he was former reserve deputy sheriff and an owner/trainer of a firearms training academy, he was a civilian and not law enforcement. more...
At the 2020 Golden Globes, Ricky Gervais did a monologue that finally told the self-important Hollywood elites how the rest of the country (and world) see them and their sanctimonious speeches at masturbatory award shows. It was the best award monologue ever. He trashed Apple, Amazon, Disney (perhaps unfairly), and the Hollywood elites sanctimony (completely deserved). It took a while to get to the punchline, but the whole thing had its moments, especially watching the Hollywood elites being uncomfortable with finally seeing themselves in the mirror. It almost made me regret not watching the rest of the show. more...
Maxine Waters was pranked by Russian trolls with a fake call to Greta Thunberg about how the Fake Climate Activist had dirt on President Trump. Anyone with a triple digit IQ would have seen through advocating for the protection of the fictitious "Chon-Go-Chango" islands, and went on to imply all sorts of nefarious things Trump said to Scoldilocks. Unfortunately, nobody has accused the Hypocrite from Southern California of having a triple digit IQ, so she gobbled it up and tried to setup a meeting to create another mock scandal. more...
ThatsWhatSheSaid.jpg
The Daily Star had an outraged headline, "We just blew £183m on a five-inch gun, but it’s ‘a good value for taxpayers"... the premise seems to be that they think a 5" gun (Naval Diameter Canon), is just 5" long handgun. You can tell because the subhead was, “the length of a toothbrush.” After getting resoundingly mocked, they since corrected the story, but they point isn't just that a staff writer was that stupid, but that the Senior editors and fact checkers were also that dumb so that no one caught it. That says what you need to know about about their collective wisdom on anything gun related. more...
The far left (like CNN) is outraged that Trump is "Cyberbullying" Greta, by pointing out that a spoiled little school ditcher has "anger management" issues, and she should probably just relax and watch a movie, after she calls for Politicians to be put against the wall. Ignoring that's not really the criteria for cyberbullying (to the reasonable non-CNN watchers), Greta claims it was just a misunderstanding between Swedenglish (a mistranslation) that's the root of the problem, even though she's said worse a dozen other times, in many different ways. Oh, and they claim that Melania Trump is a hypocrite for wanting to protect her non-activist younger child from the ravages of a venomous Press, because she won't criticize her Husband for attacking political figures who made themselves the voice of a cause and attack him first. It's eye-rollingly dumb, but then again, this is CNN. more...
GretaTrain.jpg
Greta keeps getting caught being dishonest, and whenever someone points it out, her fans yell about her superior victimhood status (that she's a special needs child, so you can criticize her lying). In this case it was her tweet about sitting on the floor of an overcrowded Diesel Train (“Traveling on overcrowded trains through Germany. And I’m finally on my way home.”). Yes, after a hard day scolding us about our carbon footprints... and it turns out she really was in first class most of the trip, but took an opportunity to sit with the underclass and whine about how hard she has it. Her allies were mad at the train company (Deutsche Bahn (DB)), for reply tweeting about thanking them for the first class accommodations she was sitting in most of the trip. more...
Culmination of escalating assaults, harassment and bullying, five black students (among 8 involved in the assault) were charged in Florida Friday for assaulting (beating) a 14 year old white kid on his school bus for the high crime of having previously worn a MAGA hat and being a Trump supporter. The Police were forced to act when the video went viral on Twitter and and was retweeted 17,000 times. more...
Articles that touch on Sexual Harassment. I'm pretty sure the crusade against sexuality is working in some cases. I'm also pretty sure that it has had many unintended consequences, and not all of them are for the better. more...

This subsection in their person of the year demonstrates what Time has descended to: a DNC leaflet for disinformation. A bunch of fraud witnesses and activists come forward with disinformation, in a Scampeachment, using here-say and lies, and Time celebrates them, because they were working with the DNC to undermine our democracy. All because they don't like President Donald Trump. They'd be embarrassed if they had any integrity left. more...
There's a new attack by the far-left on anyone that is rational (conservative or libertarian) that they must be a Russian Bot. Maxine Waters used it, even BezosBlog (WaPo) is known for doing this. I've been accused a few times. The following facts come to mind:
  1. Sure, the Russians are ones that want to protect America's borders, our economy, and our freedoms from the marxists on the far left.
  2. What the Russians did was a minuscule fraction of what Soros, the media, and the far left threw at the same issues. The left imagines some small army, but the numbers I saw was like $50K in ad buys, and a handful of trolls. And most of their support was for folks like Bernie Sanders, Black Lives Matter, Occupy Wall Street, Antifa, and things that aligned with the left, and undermining American liberty. Compared to hundreds of thousand of leftist zealots undermining our interests for free? (Not to mention the bias of those Social Media outlets themselves).

Why pay people to undermine our interest, when they have the DNC as their allies? I know which I have more concerns about. more...
There are real civil rights, and faux civil rights. The idea of increasing opportunity or freedoms for all, is real civil rights. The idea of helping some groups over others in the name of Social Justice (or other excuses) or renaming Social Programs (like Healthcare, Housing, Foodstamps, and so on) a "Civil Right" is not a real civil right. You can't have a right to other people's time or property, that would enslave them and real civil rights don't take anything from anyone else. more...
There were allegations that Jennifer Agostini and swimsuit model Prendinellys Garcia were allegedly attacked by a group of about 10–15 black women for being white, with racial comments during the beatdown including: “white motherfuckers” and “dirty white bitches”. The Manhattan bar (Sky Room) where the fight broke out, released footage of the attack in question earlier this week, and took to mocking the Women as not being real professionals, and for making what they claimed were fake allegations. more...

Dickinson.jpeg
So I get Apple TV+ for free, because I buy their computers and phones. I tried the Dickinson show, and OMG this stunk on ice (for me). While it got a 71/91 on Rotten Tomatoes, I couldn't get past the first episode. Basically it's was like Hamilton (the Play), let's imagine kids in the 19th century using modern vernacular and attitudes, and turn it into a teen dramedy suitable for The CW. It was complete with lesbian kissing scenes, and a complete cool/progressive fiancé/BF that totally gets Emily's free spirited 21 century feminist routine. It's like 90210 with more cheese and less depth and hitting every snowflake hotbutton it can find. more...
TheMorningShow.jpeg
So I get Apple TV+ for free, because I buy their computers and phones. Thus I decided to watch the best they had to offer (the premier show), called The Morning Show. Basically, it's a fictionalized story of Matt Lauer / Mitch Kessler (played by Steve Carell) getting caught in a MeToo scandal, and how his cohost Alex Levy (Jennifer Anniston) and the rest of the cast handles it. I figured with such a snowflaky topic, that Apple might go full snowflake and make complete SJW tripe. They didn't. For the most part, it was a fairly mature take on a fairly complex subject, and they didn't play Matt, er Steve Carell, as the caricature character they might have, and it brought up some reasonable discussions and was somewhat entertaining. So it was worth watching, even if it wasn't the best thing on TV. more...
Ford v Ferrari.jpg
Any racing enthusiast knows the basics of the story. But I'm not really a racing enthusiast, and get a little bored with Hollywood's track shots (which isn't usually about the strategy/tactics of driving, but more about rubbing tires and flaming crashes). Still I was familiar enough with the basics, but I wanted to see it put on digital celluloid. Plus the reviews from friends were coming in that it was really good. While the race scenes were about what I expected, the story was well done and it was an entertaining couple house. Basically it tells the story of '66, '67, '68 Le Mans, where Ferrari insulted Ford, so Ford created the GT40 (with the help of Carol Shelby and Ken Miles) and kicked their Italian asses. more...
Midway (2019).jpeg
Midway is a 2019 American war film based on the 1942 Battle of Midway during World War II. This was a turning point in the war in the pacific that signaled the beginning of the end for the Japanese empire. Since I'd seen the 1976 version of the film, and read a bit of History on the topic (especially around the code-breaking that enabled us to know where the Japanese were attacking and when), and my grandfather had fought in WWII and talked about this, there was little new or unexpected. But it was still a good, if somewhat Hollywood'ed version of what happened. more...
Richard Jewell Poster.jpg
Richard Jewell was a security guard and police officer famous for discovering a backpack containing three pipe bombs, and helping to evacuate the area and save lives at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia. But the media (NBC, CNN) did a "trial by media" that crucified him, until he was eventually exonerated, won a lawsuit/settlement, and the real bomber was caught (Eric Rudolph). This is a Clint Eastwood (Director) movie about these events. Good movie, that got lousy reviews and viewership -- but was definitely a story worth telling (and watching). more...
TrayvonHoax.jpeg
This is a book and documentary where Joel Gilbert (investigative journalist) goes over the well documented parts of the Trayvon Martin fraud - where he was a drug dealing thug that ambushed a latino guy, and was beating the shit out of him when he was shot in self defense and not some innocent tween shot for wearing a hoodie. But it adds in his own research where he details that Rachel Jeantel was not Trayvon's real girlfriend (Diamond Eugene), and the prosecutors were either incompetent or perpetrated the fraud out of malice. A fascinating watch. more...
Special k sausage quiche.jpg
Costco had a sale on these things, and I like a Quiche. While I love the crust, a crustless one was only 170 calories: so a pretty guilt free breakfast. I gave it a try. Wow. I had a little Tapatío for heat / added flavor -- that's the best f'in 2 minute egg I've ever had. Fast, easy, and fairly healthy. That and my new Keurig coffee maker (after swimming my laps in the fastest time ever), makes for a great start to the day. more...
