    I agree that if Riley Gaines were my daughter, I’d insist on going with her to speaking engagements at places like UCSF, as personal bodyguard. If they want to give her any trouble they’d have to get past mv first.

    As more & more women’s spaces nationwide are opened to men who pretend to be women, we will see more & more scenes like this. A “trans” student beats up (or sexually assaults) one or more Genotype XX teen girls. In what was once a safe space for these girls.

    And someone, like this Genotype XX teen girl. like Riley Gaines, like the father of one of the girls who were raped at Loudoun County, VA schools, or JK Rowling will have the courage to stand up & speak out that these spaces used to be safe for girls. And they should be again.

    JK Rowling in particular is incredibly brave. She is a left-wing fanatic on any other topic, but on this she makes some good common conservative sense & she is suffering millions of dollars in losses & additional costs, because of her position. She is in show business & they are trying to cancel her.

    We need allies wherever we can find them. And we need to give them support whenever we can.

    Wow. Just ... wow.

    We’ve spent $78 billion on a war we have no business getting involved in (Ukraine). That $78 billion could have put an average of three armed security guards, one metal detector, 3/4 mile of chainlink fence & 10 armed teachers (annual bonus of $10,000) in every one of the public schools in America.

    That’s an average. More for bigger schools, less for smaller ones. I like killing two birds with one stone. Secure schools & more money for underpaid teachers. Hire unemployed vets as the security guards & we can make it three.

    But Democrats are too stupid to value our children’s lives as much as they value traffic court clerks. Every courthouse in the country has the same security.

    ChiCon, I’m right up the road from you in the NW suburbs. Part of Planne Parenthood’s business model was putting an abortion clinic in every black neighborhood. So these girls didn’t have far to go to kill their babies.

    Because a lot of Red states have outlawed abortion now, that will naturally cut down the number of abortions by tens of thousands. Because these girls either don’t want to travel, or don’t have the resources. I don’t think Walz has anything to worry about.

    "The 2020 general election was the most secure in American history."

    Democrats are in the habit of giving you a half-truth & pretending they told the whole truth.

    It was the most secure against Russian interference, because that's what the Democrats wanted everybody to be scared about: Russian influence in our elections. As far as they're concerned, Chinese influence is perfectly okay (Google the names John Huang & Charlie Trie).

    But even better, as far as Democrats are concerned, is domestic interference. Every media outlet from CBS News to "The View" was practically chanting, "Vote for the Democrats!" Fifty intelligence officials pretended that Hunter Biden's laptop was "Russian disinformation."

    And of course, there's the whole question of Dominion & the practice of shutting down the vote counting in the middle of the night with Trump ahead, then reopening in the morning & somehow, Biden pulled ahead.

    That election was stolen. Very little doubt about that. But it was definitely safe from "Russian interference."

    Ah, the checkered history of the “South Slavs.” Confusing at best, totally random chaos in its natural state. They’ve been victims of the Greeks, the Romans, the Turks, the Austrians, the Magyars (Hungarians), the Nazis & the Communists from Moscow. Constantly divided against each other.

    The conquering empires surrounding them would use one religious or ethnic group against its neighbors. For example, the Turkish leaders would draft a troop of Bosniak (Muslim) peasants in one village, arm them with spears, clubs, torches & knives, then send them into neighboring Serb (Orthodox) or Croat (Catholic) villages in the middle of the night to loot the houses, murder the men, rape the women, steal the livestock, then burn it all to the ground.

    Then they’d go to the Croat villages & do the same to the Serbs & Bosniaks.

    Then they’d go to the Serb villages & do the same to the Croats & Bosniaks.

    Then they’d crank up the spin cycle. Lather, rinse, repeat.

    Within just a few years, these three ethnic groups — who all share the same language, the same customs, the same traditional clothing & music & foods & taste for plum brandy — hated each other’s guts more than they hated the Turks.

    Which was the goal of this entire plan. If you can get these subjugated people fighting each other furiously, they’ll never unite in a revolution against your Empire.

    Later conquering empires — particularly the Hungarians & the Nazis — capitalized upon & continued this divide-and-conquer tradition, to the point that reuniting these feuding factions under the Kingdom of Yugoslavia was doomed to fail long before it was started.

    The Communists introduced atheism in an attempt to quell these intra-ethnic hatreds, but it was far too late for that.

    Stanislavjevic & his “Mountain Birds” were just a manifestation of this between the wars.

  • Actor Woody Harrelson SNL monologue blows up Pfizer… ( Watch Video)

    Philo1962 to Celerity

    And I'm sure you remember why the lunatic left-wing fringe was screeching about it. Everybody knew that Big Pharma was making billions off of HIV medications & "the search for a cure" or "a vaccine." And the media made sure everybody heard about it. Because it was homosexuals who were dying -- not children or some other demographic group -- so that Big Pharma could make billions.

    So Big Pharma bought the media with billions in advertising. And now the media haven't let out one whimper about COVID vaccines, or the suppression of perfectly safe off-label antivirals -- ivermectin & hydroxychloroquine.

    After hating Big Pharma with a white hot fury for so many years, it's amazing how quickly the lunatic left-wing fringe & Big Media jumped into bed with Big Pharma, sucking even more enthusiastically than Stormy Daniels.

    Notice also that Big Pharma engaged in "regulatory capture," a term first coined by the lunatic left-wing fringe to screech about what the oil& coal industries were doing to the Dept. of Energy. So now, Big Pharma did the same thing to the CDC, FDA, NIH & NAIAD. High level leadership at all four agencies is packed with former Pfizer executives, who got enormous portfolios chock full of Pfizer stock as part of their fringe benefits while at Pfizer. It is not in their personal best interests to come down hard on Pfizer.

    A few inconvenient facts for the vaccine advocates:

    1. Ivermectin won the Nobel Prize in medicine -- not veterinary medicine -- in 2015. It has been prescribed over 1 billion times successfully. For humans.

    2. HCQ is an antimalarial prophylactic -- which means you take it on a regular basis to avoid getting malaria when in the tropics. Just about every medicine cabinet in Sub-Saharan Africa has a bottle of HCQ in it. They call it the "Sunday pill" because you're supposed to take it once a week. It is no coincidence that WHO has named Sub-Saharan Africa the "least affected region" by the COVID pandemic every month, in spite of its sparse, primitive health care systems.

    3. The previous COVID pandemic was called SARS, in 2003. (The actual scientific names for these two pandemics are SARS-COV-I & SARS-COV-II.) It was scary. The government went so far as to have DARPA develop a plan to fight the next COVID outbreak. And they did. This plan was distributed to the CDC, FDA, NIH & NAIAD. Early versions used HCQ as a prophylactic. The later versions (from 2016 on) also used ivermectin as an early treatment medication.

    4. A peer-reviewed study done in Brazil proved that when administered early after the onset of symptoms, ivermectin cuts the COVID fatality rate by 91%.

    5. Another peer-reviewed study, this one in Dubai, showed that the vaccines have no significant advantage over natural immunity. (Published in the New England Journal of Medicine, June 2022.)

    "Dubai? Brazil?" you ask. "Why do these studies have to be done in Third World countries? Why can't they be done in the United States?"

    Why, indeed.

  • Teacher's thread claiming sex between adults and minors is not 'intrinsically harmful' HORRIFIES Twitter

    Philo1962 to NetAddicted
    Took me a while to check out “her”’Twitter page. “She” is pro-drag queen story hour, and pro-transgender mutilation medicine for minors, plus pro-porn for children. This “woman” must be lying on “her” Twitter & linked in pages, cuz “she” would be fired so fast.

    Republicans took control of the House in January, so we need to at least try to make the month of May "LGBTQ Disease Awareness Month." Any school, from K thru grad school, must teach the following bullet pointed curriculum in every classroom for 1 hr every Friday for the last four weeks before summer, or lose all federal funding.

    Any government unit trying to make up this loss of funding also gets its federal funding cut off. Any high school or college student who fails to sign in at the beginning of each class & sign out at the end is ineligible for graduation. Any teacher who refuses to teach this curriculum, or lets students cut class will lose teaching credentials.

    The LGBTQ community is at high risk for the following:

    • HIV & Hepatitis C. Both are incurable & always fatal. Lifetime medical costs for either of these are $400,000. After 40 years of "safe sex" education, about 90% of all new HIV cases still come from the LGBTQ community.

    • Syphilis, gonorrhea & other "standard" STDs. In 2014, the CDC reported that 84% of new syphilis cases were gay/bi men (who make up 1% of the population).

    • So many LGBTQs have both HIV AND hepatitis C -- or HIV, hepatitis C AND syphilis -- that the medical professionals have coined a new word to describe this phenomenon: "syndemic." A synthesis of epidemics.

    • Rectal Foreign Bodies (RFBs). Trauma center personnel are acutely aware that about 90% of these patients are gay/bi men. All sorts of objects, from potatoes to tennis balls, get shoved up in there for a thrill. Then they can't get it out. The worst case I've heard of was a wine bottle that broke off. Every time they tried to pull it out, it just cut the patient more. They had to do emergency abdominal surgery, then two weeks of recovery & industrial strength antibiotics, to fight the inevitable E. coli infection.

    • Giardiasis, shigellosis, amoebiasis & other infections of the intestinal tract. Without treatment, all are fatal if they spread to the liver. Identifiable symptoms do not appear until the disease is well advanced. One study showed that 41% of gay/bi men have amoebiasis. In the US straight population, it's 0.01% -- and most of those got it by doing something like "a year of missionary work in an East African village, where the village well was contaminated by raw sewage & animal manure." Okay, after having said all that, you don't have to be Sherlock Holmes to figure out how a homosexual who never left San Francisco might catch it.

    • And now ... Monkeypox & Meningitis C.

    • Sharply elevated risks of alcoholism, drug addiction & mental illness.

    • Increased risks of domestic violence, sexual assault & being targeted for other types of predatory crimes (robbery, con artists, etc.). Women are more likely to become victims of domestic violence in lesbian relationships than in straight relationships.

    The price tags for all of these diseases are subsidized by normal people like you & me. For example, when a patient gets HIV at 21, he's probably not going to make it to 40 & there is absolutely no way anybody is going to get $400,000 worth of health insurance premiums out of him. Obamacare was custom designed for the LGBTQ community. There was no way they could get health insurance any other way. And a disproportionate number of them are on Medicaid anyway.

  • Miss Jacques' Typing Class (1978-1980)

    Hey stranger. I don’t stop by here at FR much these days — I’m WAY too busy — but your username happened to catch my eye as a blast from my past (1999 or so). I had a girlfriend spot welded to my hip (or so it seemed) in all four years of high school, so I didn’t see any class as an opportunity to pick one up. Football, wrestling & baseball for me.

    I did happen to write for the student newspaper & became their copy editor. So I did the hunt & peck thing.... and got good at it. I have to look at the keyboard & still type with a few fingers (index & middle fingers on both hands), with a thumb for the space bar, but I was doing 65 WPM by college.

    This skill has always served me well. I was the copy editor on a weekly community college newspaper, then a big four-year university daily. And we always got All-American awards from the Associated Collegiate Press. At both papers, I was the only conservative on an editorial board packed with people ranging from liberal to total flaming socialist.

    For my senior year, I had a weekly opinion column. It was scheduled for Monday publication intentionally, so that the openly bisexual & nominally female editor-in-chief could publish virulent attacks on me for the rest of the week, in op-eds from the left-wing professors & letters to the editor from all those socialists at the Progressive Students’ Alliance.

    In October, I wrote a column criticizing the homosexual group on campus. I didn’t even say whether I supported their list of demands or not, or didn’t care. Instead, I zeroed in on their totally dishonest, histrionic tactics. For example, on “Blue Jeans Day” we were supposed to wear blue jeans if we supported the homosexual agenda. There was very little advance publicity, on purpose. But they were sure to take a lot of photos (to be published in a centerfold photo spread in our paper) of crowds of oblivious students unwittingly walking around in blue jeans, not even realizing that they were “showing support,” because as you know, it was pretty much our uniform from the waist down in those days.

    My column didn’t get published, but I did save a copy. And I started raising hell about it. It took a couple months & I had several slightly less controversial columns published in that interlude. Finally, I appealed this decision to our faculty advisor, who was (of course) a liberal, but remarkably fair-minded. He summoned the openly bisexual, nominally female editor-in-chief into his office & I just sat there & tried not to visibly smirk.

    “You gave this gentleman an opinion column, correct?”

    “Yeah, but —”

    “Then he is entitled to an opinion. I know you don’t like it. That’s why we call them ‘opinions.’ It doesn’t have to be the same as yours. I’ve read it. I don’t see anything wrong with it. Publish it.”

    And it was published the following Monday. And the delay most likely saved me a lot of grief.

    Because it was the middle of January by then & the campus was completely frozen over. There would have been a huge mob picketing the student newspaper office if it had been printed in October. But it was so cold that they could only get a few True Believers in The Cause to show up.

    One of them actually came in, stood in front of my desk & started ranting. I did an early version of Nick Sandmann. I just sat there, smiled at him & sipped my coffee.

    Then I stood up & took my glasses off. That was back in the day when the first Superman movies were coming out with Christopher Reeves. My nickname on the football team was “Clark,” as in “Clark Kent.” And he-wanna-be-a-she was about 5’8” & 140 lbs.

    Needless to say, he-wanna-be-a-she left about 15 seconds later. And 10 minutes later, I didn’t even remember a word he-wanna-be-a-she had said.

    This was typed at 65 WPM. I still got it.

    E. Pluribus Unum: China.

    Williams: The democrats are owned by the cartels and Red China. Couldn’t be any more obvious.

    CodeToad: China makes them and Mexico distributes them.

    China is manufacturing roughly 10,000 times the amount of fentanyl that is needed for legitimate medical use. This is not rocket science. They know what they're doing, and where it's going.

    Let's call it what it is. It's a "slow walking" weapon of mass destruction. Fentanyl is killing 300 Americans per day. In four years, it kills roughly the same number of people as the "Little Boy" atomic bomb that we dropped on Hiroshima.

    It also makes hundreds of thousands of addicts completely unproductive. In fact, counterproductive. They can't hold a steady job. They collect welfare and live in public housing, draining our tax dollars by the billions. To support their habits, they turn into burglary, or drug dealing, or low rent prostitution (with the diseases that are spread), or some other type of predatory criminal career against the rest of us, and our children.

    And eventually, they overdose too.

    If they were firing missiles at us that killed 10,000 Americans a year and incapacitated another 100,000 ... do you really think we'd take it laying down like this?

    Now, about these "rainbow fentanyl" pills. These have been created specifically to target our children. How many kids are going to find these in the sock drawer of Mommy's new boyfriend and think they're candy, then eat four or five of them?

    The leaker is most likely Amit Jain. He’s an immigrant from India and a clerk for Justice Sotomayor. His resume reads like a “how to” manual for turning an immigrant into a flaming left-wing partisan. At law school and immediately after graduating, he was involved in projects that are all near and dear to the shriveled hearts of the lunatic left-wing fringe.

    That only narrows it down a little bit, since all of the clerks for Sotomayor, Kagan and Breyer have resumes like that.

    Specifically for Jain, the original leak of the Dobbs decision went to Politico. Jain was interviewed by a particular reporter at Politico a few months earlier. Then the very same reporter started publishing leaked info, that was clearly coming from somebody who works for the Supreme Court.

    I don’t trust coincidences. I’m not going to say “I don’t believe in coincidences.” They do happen. But I don’t trust them when they’re this convenient, and this closely dovetailed.

    ... but 7 years seemed excessive, considering that some murderers get far less prison time.

    Here in the lovely Blue State of Illinois, the average sentence for a first offender on a first degree murder charge is 7 years. Many get far less. This is one of the reasons why Chicago street gangs use 13-year-olds as their trigger men when they plan to kill somebody.

    The other is that under Illinois law, they simply are not allowed to keep a juvenile offender in prison past his 21st birthday, for any crime. Even for a mass shooting which could (theoretically) have produced dozens of murder charges. The only avenue for prosecutors is to charge them as adults, and that's subject to a left-wing judge dismissing the charges and insisting that the defendant be charged as a juvenile. Either way, a 13-year-old gets out by his 21st birthday, every time.

    I've seen a manslaughter charge, where a drunk driving 17-year-old girl (whose wealthy family hired an excellent lawyer) got PROBATION. The terms of her probation were pretty harsh, but come on, man. She went home to the family mansion, when she should have gone to prison.

    There have been literally tens of thousands of cases like this over the years. Blue State lunacy.

    I want some sanity in cases like this. The feds need to be able to step in and charge such defendants with federal crimes, that carry mandatory minimum sentences. Unfortunately, current federal laws for violent crimes only protect federal employees and the like.

    When the Republicans take control of Congress in January, it should be seen as an opportunity to create some common sense violent crime laws for such offenders.

    For many years now, the Democrats and their propaganda mills (CNN, MSNBC, NYT) have attacked us as "the party of old white men." And in case you haven't noticed, the Biden Administration seems to have very few white males -- at least, heterosexual ones.

    We need more female candidates. And Kari Lake is hell on wheels, as this interview (and others) demonstrated. She rhetorically takes hold of a left-wing propaganda minion, and tears his legs off without breaking a sweat. My kind of woman.
