  • QAnon Shaman Jacob Chansley is released 14 months early from prison after Jan. 6 footage showed him being ESCORTED into Senate by cops

    Good. He seems a bit unbalanced, but that’s not a crime. My own personal view is that he did nothing more serious than trespassing (if that - what protest is ever done that didn’t affect someone else’s rights to some extent?). At most, he was guilty of a misdemeanor and should have been released after a couple of days or weeks in prison. Unfortunately, he now has a felony record and an FBI file - his life will always be affected by this nakedly political prosecution (as will many others).

  • Uncommon Senselessness: Who Are These People?

    “I’m afraid that when they control the schools and the mass media, “calling them on it” is woefully inadequate.”
    I am not quite so pessimistic. Parents are beginning to take back the schools, and with Musk having liberated Twitter from Leftist Fascism, there is a glimmer of hope. Neither of these battles is in anything but a very early stage, but the Left has been so over the top for so long, and with such horrible results, that people are beginning to get tired of it. Never give up hope, that is when you are defeated.

    The Democrats/progressives/Leftists are, at the same time, both hypocrites and well trained users of a very effective psychological technique. They do what they do to shame the rest of society into giving them the power that they so badly crave. When it looks like the tables are turned, they go into “horror mode.” They accuse anyone opposing them, or investigating them, or exposing them, of doing exactly what they had been doing previously. Here are some examples:

    When they have been guilty of rigging elections, and are called on it, they accuse us of exactly the same. Similarly, when we call for election integrity laws to stop vote-rigging, they accuse us of racism for “trying to stop minorities from voting.”

    When we catch them lying and abusing the power of the federal government, including constitutional processes like impeachment, they recoil in horror, and accuse us of “undermining democracy” or “undermining the Constitution.” Chuck Schumer is ALWAYS there, lying his slimy, smarmy, ass of, together with fakely threatening to cry about what the horrible “right wing extremists” are doing.

    There are many more examples, both on a governmental and personal level. Just remember, our Leftists are no different than those that controlled the Soviet Union back in the day. When the United States was accused of something in Pravda it was an absolute guarantee that the Soviet Union had been, and was doing, exactly the same thing. This is how they roll, this is how criminals psychologically disarm their victims. It is up to us to first realize what is happening, and to then call them on it - every single time.

  • French raid Paris banks in €100 billion tax fraud probe

    Macron is desperate to turn attention away from his action to increase the age for receiving their Social Security. While I have no doubt that this kind of corruption exists, the authorities are usually blind to it until it becomes inconvenient to be blind. Otherwise, why do this in the midst of what’s beginning to look like a replay of the 2008 banking crisis? Methinks that Macron doesn’t care about anyone or anything other than his power.

  • The Republican Party of Reagan would be Ukraine’s strongest supporters

    “ack to the main subject. Agreed. Reagan never would have been sucked into a Ukrainian war for had his policies proceeded after his terms, Russia would have been treated like any other beaten enemy, such as Japan and Germany. Today Japan and Germany are our allies. There is no reason Russia could not have been turned into an ally too.”

    Agreed. We had a unique opportunity to gradually turn a generations-long enemy into a powerful friend over the course of a couple of succeeding generations. We didn’t just blow the opportunity, we rushed with gusto to destroy any vestige of a chance to accomplish this goal. We and the Russians share a lot in common: we are both continent-sized powers with immense natural resources; we are both Western countries (in terms of science) with large numbers of highly educated people; we both have sizeable minorities; and we both share 2 powerful and implacable enemies: China and radical Islam. SURELY there was lots of room to find ways to cooperate for our mutual interests, and to turn that cooperation into respect and, ultimately, friendship over a few decades. But the War Party didn’t want that, and they killed that dream.

    “The Republican Party of Reagan would be Ukraine’s strongest supporters”


    I proudly voted for Reagan 4 times (primaries and general in ‘80 and ‘84), and while people like me would have supported fighting the Soviet Union in every possible way...the Soviet Union has ceased to exist. That’s not to say that Russia hasn’t and isn’t doing bad things - of course they are - but understanding the degree and nature of the threat is a thing.

    Back then, you had a seemingly all-powerful and highly aggressive USSR trying to undermine and ultimately take over the West. Now Russia, the core of the USSR on every level, is bereft of not just its client states, but also of many of the former Soviet “republics.” Russia has an economy the size of New York State’s, it has a rapidly declining population, and it is incredibly vulnerable to foreign enemies. It is, basically, a Turd World country...except for those thousands of nukes.

    The idea of seriously risking a nuclear exchange with the USSR was anathema to Reagan - and it is he (with Bill Casey) who engineered the bloodless fall of the evil Communist regime that ran/owned Russia for 75 years. Now there is even less reason to risk such a civilization-ending conflict - Russia simply wants to return to the physical security that it had 30 or so years ago, at a time when they know that they will never be able to field a truly large army again to defend themselves. Their incredible weakness in military technology and in the effective use of whatever manpower and equipment that they have, is a source of great insecurity for them, and us sending tens of billions in equipment plus supplying training and intelligence to Ukraine only makes that worse. You really, REALLY do NOT want a nuclear superpower to be insecure - that’s a recipe for having things turn out anything but well, and I am 100% confident that Reagan would be opposed to what Biden and the War Party (both Dems and Pubbies) are doing. He’d be negotiating a deal that would leave Russia very secure...within a box that they couldn’t leave. They are no threat to us, only to their neighbors because of insecurities that we have purposely exacerbated.

    Sean Youra is a Climate Tard.

    Yes, we all like clean air, clean water, a wide variety of animal and plant species, forests, etc. - and we SHOULD do reasonable things to keep (or obtain, if we don’t have them) those things that we want. But the idea that Mankind alone is responsible for shifts in the climate and large-scale natural disasters is completely absurd - so much so that you need to be a particularly stupid and gullible tard, one nearly completely ignorant of scientific knowledge, to believe those things.

    While I was, and remain, disappointed in some of what Trump did, and in some of what he didn’t do, I have a couple of responses to this article:

    1) Trump was severely handicapped from Day One because of the universal spewing of hatred toward, and lies about, him from the media and EVERY SINGLE DEMOCRAT. Further handicapping him were significant elements of the (so-called) Republican Party, who either failed to support the President of their own party or outright stabbed him in the back.

    2) He came to DC as a legit outsider, yet still had to put people into place in order to be able to run the government. Virtually the only people that he could rely on for advice, as well as to fill those positions, were DC insiders of one stripe or another - and many of them pretended to agree with him and his stated objectives, but lied to him and undercut him (and therefor us) at every opportunity. When/if he goes to DC again, this particular handicap will not be there to anywhere near the same extent.

    3) There is really no one who has both the vision of what our government should be doing (and what it shouldn’t be doing), as well as the charisma and force of personality to realistically be able to make that vision a reality. I like DeSantis, and will certainly vote for him if he wins the nomination, but he is Trump-lite. Sometimes the things that he says make me doubt whether he’s a true believer in limited government - though he’s better than any other Republican on that score...other than Donald Trump. Finally, Trump has the unique gift (among pols) of making quick and unpredictable decisions. This is particularly important in the area of foreign policy, and has the effect of making our enemies back down because he induces a complete sense of uncertainty for them.

    Is Trump perfect? Nope, just like anyone else. But he is unapologetically pro-American, and he understands how the economy works and how human psychology works better than just about any other pol that I’ve ever seen. He is STILL, despite his flaws and past mistakes, the single best person that we have to occupy the Oval Office.

    I graduated from GU in 1983. There was none of this woke crap there back then - it was pretty much the university that it had been since its inception, which is to say that the goal that the Jesuits had when they set the place up was to teach young people certain skill sets and teach them how to think so that they could more easily learn after they left the place, thereby preparing them to enter the real world as functional adults.

    I do not recognize my alma mater, except that on those few occasions when I’m in the DC area and visit, the physical infrastructure looks very familiar. I think that I gave one donation shortly after graduating, and nothing since then. I am reasonably sure that I’d rather have my fingernails pulled out with a pair of pliers, than give GU a single red cent of my money.

    This guy is the personification of evil. To openly admire that inhuman maniac, Lenin, as well as the genocidal and dictatorial Chinese regime, is all the evidence that one needs. The fact that he is a German who is putting together a fascist world state is either the height of irony, or the cruelest joke on humanity, in nearly a century.

    That is why, at least years ago, all of the airlines had a cooperative arrangement to allow any pilot to ride free, to encourage them to be on planes as passengers, in case something of the sort occurred. I don’t know what the policy is now, but of course it makes sense for somebody with the requisite skill set to replace the pilot who fell ill. This honestly should not have been news, it should only have been news if it was found that the guy didn’t go into the cockpit.

    Why is that relevant to anything? Do you think that Trump knew what ATF was doing to a particular person, let alone ordered it? You never heard of rogue agents or agencies - meaning that they have their own agendas and intentionally violate policy for their own reasons?

    Shoot it down? With what? The Dems and faux-Republicans over the last several decades have prevented us from having any kind of ABM system that could actually protect us...and have also made any kind of national shelter system impossible with their arrogance and condescending ridicule of the concept. They’ve left us completely unprepared to face a purposeful EMP attack or a solar storm like the Carrington Event that would destroy our civilization and kill hundreds of millions.

    “Godfather 1 and 2 are on my list of all time favorites,...”

    Ditto. I had the good fortune about 4 years ago on a Saturday to have 2 kids glued to their tablets, dogs that were just fine being outside all day except for a short break to eat, and my wife busy out of the house with work. Soooooo, I proceeded to watch 4 of my favorite movies in a row:

    The Godfather
    The Godfather Part II
    Tora, Tora, Tora

    Much popcorn was sacrificed that day, and it is the single best entertainment day of my life, so far.

    As far as the topic, Pacino really grew into the role over time. He truly is a great actor.
