  • America held hostage under Chinese Viceroy Biden: Day Six

    We are now at day six following the installation of the senile Chinese viceroy by a corrupt Chief Justice, what organized action has been organized to protest the loss of the Republic guaranteed by Article IV, Section 4 of the United States Constitution? I continue to advocate an economic boycott. Save your money so that we can minimize the "Biden recovery" when the Blue State governors re-open their economies. Refrain from purchasing things that aren't necessities. Boycott the "big box stores" and Chinese manufactured goods. Keep the sales tax revenues down. Don't do anything stupid.

    As we drove through Warrenton, Virginia (population 9,913), it struck me and my husband, Scott, at the same time. In a quarter mile stretch of road, there was every major chain that has come to define the American fast-food landscape. We were hungry. We didn’t want to get COVID-19. I had forgotten the frozen pizzas in our rush to get out the door. And neither of us had tried the famous Popeyes’ Chicken Sandwich that had sold out across the country in 2019. We set our minds to our new mission. First, we devised rules: At every venue, we would...

    Carnival Cruise Line has released a major update on ship deployments. This includes several changes for when ships will return after their dry dock and some deployment changes. Unfortunately, most of it is not so good as the cruise line has already announced a further suspension until May and further delays ships.

The global pandemic and the impact on the industry are not making it easy, so ships have...

    I believe the time has come to realize or at least consider; whatever reaction one may or may not have; that the people in power are going to keep some variation of CV-19 going for a long, long time. Today, Newsom (CA) stated that 50% of the new cases in Los Angeles are of the new, UK, more contagious variety. It's isn't a matter of whom you are gonna vote for, or whom you wish to blame. It's a matter of the swamp et al realizing that they can now control the masses with a word: "Hey, there's a new...

    It takes him just eight seconds to pry out her passenger side window. A couple more seconds to grab bags containing at least $5,000 worth of property from her front seat. And less than 30 seconds total. “It was definitely an organized crew,” the victim’s girlfriend told us Saturday. “You can tell from that video it’s not the first time he did it.” “I thought having it on video, they would wanna see if it’s anyone they’re looking for,” he said Sunday. “Apparent not. Oh well, lesson learned.”

    Hello, I was unsure how to get in touch so I thought this might get a mod's attention. It seems my posts are now being held back. If I have violated a rule I am sorry. If posting less can restore what I consider to be a great website that would be great. I believe in your mission and as a monthly donor put my money where bandwidth is, so to speak. Happy to back off posting a little, it's just your site is a little addictive. Did not mean to upset.

    Scrambled eggs might be a simple dish but it can be surprisingly hard to get right. Everyone wants a fluffy texture and to avoid the eggs going too rubbery. And one chef says the key is his secret ingredient – mayonnaise. Food scientist Alton Brown says the condiment gives the dish a creamier and more delicious texture.

    NEW YORK (AP) — For the first time since 1983, when Anheuser-Busch used all of its ad time to introduce a beer called Bud Light, the beer giant isn’t advertising its iconic Budweiser brand during the Super Bowl. Instead, it’s donating the money it would have spent on the ad to coronavirus vaccination awareness efforts. Anheuser-Busch still has four minutes of advertising during the game for its other brands including Bud Light, Bud Light Seltzer Lemonade, Michelob Ultra and Michelob Ultra Organic Seltzer. Those are some of its hottest sellers, particularly among younger viewers. But the decision to not do...
  • Hindsight: Jacques Parizeau, the Elmer Fudd of Quebec

    01/25/2021 8:24:11 AM PST · by Scooter100 · 3 replies
    In 1995, Quebec's Premiere, Jacques Parizeau, called it correctly after losing the Quebec [separatist] referendum to secede from Canada. In an interview the following day, according to Jackie-Poo, he lost because of "big money and the ethnic vote".In the strangest of twists, it was Quebec's leftist French parliamentarians who, for years, had pushed for Multiculturalism's wide-open immigration, a la Pierre Trudeau, that Euro-centric, arch-globalist and China-lover! How delightfully ironic! The massive ethnic influx that diluted the Quebec separatist vote was, in fact, all their own fault! Parizeau and the "Pur Laine" shot themselves in the face, like Elmer Fudd in...

    Both Hank Arron and Larry King took the vaccines right before they passed. I am not saying it was the vaccine that killed them. Nevertheless, it should be noted.Here is a compile of Social Media accounts (see link below) that took the vaccine. This is from the peoeple that the MSM will never show you. Thought you may want to take a look at this long list. For the record, I have had vaccines in the past, and I am not an anti-vaccine. Although this does not automatically mean every vaccine is safe. This was rushed out in 9 months...

    Indivisible.org is a DC-run organization with (I believe) several regional "corporate offices" that gather, manufacture and spread messaging in all communities, right down to the smallest of rural civic entities. It is responsible for generating election infrastructure, organization and messaging for their chosen candidates. Check out the local chapters. The chapters all have different, bland-sounding names. If you weren't aware of this, please research and become your own local activist. Find out who are local members. Many members are usually long-standing members of your community. Note that they will be the ones to show up at your county, city and...

    NRA Family ^ | Tuesday, September 24, 2019 | Frank Melloni
    Fewer experiences in life are more frightening than looking down the muzzle of a firearm. Funny thing about muzzle control, it’s not instinctive. In fact it’s about as hard a discipline to learn as any of the fundamentals of marksmanship. Learning how to ALWAYS keep the firearm pointed in a safe direction takes a little bit of time, discipline and, of course, desire. The same holds true for keeping your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot and only loading the gun when you are ready to shoot. The NRA’s three-step model is very simple indeed,...

    email from friend | 1/25/2020 | unknown
    WHAT IS GASLIGHTING? The term originates in the systematic psychological manipulation of a victim by her husband in Patrick Hamilton’s 1938 stage play Gas Light, and the film adaptations released in 1940 and 1944. In the story, the husband attempts to convince his wife and others that she is insane by manipulating small elements of their environment and insisting that she is mistaken, remembering things incorrectly, or delusional when she points out these changes. The play's title alludes to how the abusive husband slowly dims the gas lights in their home, while pretending nothing has changed, in an effort to...

    As Robert Mueller was ramping up his Russia collusion probe in spring 2017, then-acting Director Andrew McCabe was summoned to the Justice Department for a high-level Sunday morning meeting led by then-Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. McCabe showed up thinking it was a "coordination and logistics issues" meeting for the new special counsel probe, but soon he found he himself was to be the subject of discussion, according to newly declassified notes that McCabe recorded of the gathering. Rosenstein wanted McCabe to recuse himself as FBI director from the Russia probe because McCabe's wife had run for office in 2015...
