  1. Rioting in the Netherlands, Germans are burning coal, and people in poor countries are riding and protesting over high prices and inevitable shortages.

    Enjoy what's going on? It will be much worse this fall and winter. Germany may not have enough energy to heat their homes and to keep their factories running.

    Enjoy what's going on? Thank our stupid, idiotic, venal Western leaders and the global elites

  2. from CTH this am... British Prime Minister Boris Johnson resigned. Days later, former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was assassinated. A few days passed and both the President and Prime Minister of Sri Lanka, resigned and fled the country. Today, with their ruling governments in a state of turmoil, Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas and Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi have both tendered their resignations.

    Looks like the elites rats are abandoning their ships...

  4. Jayhawk... as I told a close friend the other day, for the first time ever, I'm truly unsettled about the US. Rebecca Costa in her book Watchman's Rattle tells the story of ppl who perish because they are unable to figure out a way to solve their problems.

    I'm wondering if that's where we are at now.

    8. Not if they Epps'd the Capitol. It wouldn't be surprising at all.

      I'm fuzzy on some details. Did Ray Epps try to order the Defense Department and FBI to seize voting machines and announce election fraud? Did Epps send Rudy Giuliani to court over five dozen times to harass, delay, and stall election certifications? Did Epps impersonate Donald Trump on phone calls to Georgia election officials trying to get them to manufacture more votes for Trump from thin air? Did Epps persuade Republican lawmakers to submit faked slates of electors to Mike Pence and pressure Pence to violate the Constitution to honor them? Did Epps assault Secret Service security personnel and attempt to hijack a government vehicle to join an armed anti-Pence crowd seeking to execute the Vice-President and other elected officials? Did Epps tell an armed mob that injured over 150 police officers in their incited assault upon the Capitol that he "loves them" and that they're "special?"

      I'm a little iffy on Epps' role in the desperate attempts to cling to power made by the worst President America will ever have. Can you assist?

      Delete

    15. So, Team Trump's efforts to get Defense and Justice to illegally seize voting machines, efforts to tie up the election in courts, efforts to get state election officials to revise their certifications with manufactured votes, efforts to subvert the Electoral College with faked elector slates, efforts to threaten the VP and elected officials with a violent mob to reverse the results of an legitimate election - these were all a massive and efficient conspiracy by the Democrats to discredit Trump supporters and even Trump himself with what? Mind-control lasers?

      The real question, that pops out with resounding clarity, is why the Democrats would expend such a colossal, gargantuan effort of furtively concealed herculean manpower and secrecy to achieve such an overwhelming decisice effect when it's day-glo neon obvious that Trump supporters are dumber than bubbled-wrapped sawdust?

      Delete
    16. Trump was trying to get the above done "legitimately" by dumping unConstitutionally accepted votes and correcting the Electoral voters. There's nothing illegal about that. As for seizing the machines, the much vaunted security of which has been now discounted by the voter integrity unit. Sounds like a seizure would have been the prudent thing to do.

      Facts don't care about your feelings. There was nothing "legitimate" about Trump protesting a loss that was fully and accurately foreseen by pilling data and his popularity being slightly less than that of a shit-clogged overflowing and broken public toilet. He had no case to take to court, and went to court anyway.

      What's Trump's 2024 plan to curb reckless spending and inflation, to move American trade into new and growing markets, to stabilize foreign relations, to improve America's decaying infrastructure, to restore the status quo ante with an increasingly belligerent Russia, to restore faith in civic institutions, to actually make America great again?

      Not sure how Biden removing tariffs on China (or even other countries - Trump was "tough on allies," heh) would make him "weak on China" or suffer much if any politically. It's not like the AFL-CIO is fickle with their conjoinment with the Democratic Party. And it's not like there's a fidget spinner makers union in the US of any level of clout. Biden came into office stating he was holding onto to tariffs on China as a bargaining chip. China has kept on keeping on, making that bargaining chip lose value. US manufacturers and farmers are making money via increased subsidies from the US government without producing or exporting a thing. Tariffs have not hurt China at all. In the US they are the largest cost of living increase ever imposed on the American people. So much for that "Trump tax cut" that went bye-bye when the prices of equity building materials went through the roof *before Covid and before inflation.*

      We need leadership that understands Economics 101 and the economic impact of left-wing government interventions into free trade (such as Comrade Trump's tariffs).

    37. @ Dave Miller,
      That's not what the Secret Service says happened.
      But I don't really give a damn. As FJ has alluded, they are part of the Praetorian Guard and the Praetorian Guard will protect itself first.
      In view of Hillary's antics of destroying cell phones and computer hard drives, I don't see how any "Progressive" has room to even raise an eyebrow over the matter.
      Another thing is that nothing that goes through the Internet is ever truly destroyed, you just have to know where to look. I'd suggest the NSA, it seems as leaky as a sieve at this point in time.

    38. Noted FJ, Bannon left that titled role some time ago.

      It wasn't a limo. It was an SUV.

      As for believing Trump assaulted law enforcement officers (Secret Service personnel are law enforcement) and tried to hijack their SUV to go attack the Capitol cops and trash offices and shit in the Rotunda... why not believe it? It's not like that is the most damning anecdote in the chain of more heavily documented and substantial occurrences in Trump's attempts to overthrow legitimate election results.

      A reporter asking Trump a question has many times proven sufficient enough to trigger that snowflake into blowing a gasket and running to a safe space to hyperventilate. Leslie freaking Stahl can make this guy have a meltdown. Why not the certification of his election loss?


      Delete
  8. TOM... I'm not sure who or what DT is... as for the lunging, right now we have one person saying it happen, one SS officer with a history of struggles with the true saying it did not, and a Capitol Police cop saying he saw an pretty animated conversation in the vehicle.

    During Watergate, the Secret Service testified. We can clear this all up by having the Secret Service once again testify, under oath.

    Right now, I'd say it rings true, but I really have no opinion on the lunging, or even the ketchup on the walls.

    But none of this was part of my question. Silver just straight up answered it. I appreciate that.

    4. The Political Chic asked... "Dave Miller, Do YOU believe that could even happen?"

      I never believed a president would sit idly by while the US Capitol was under attack, was vandalized, US officers were injured, and a woman was killed and not call in a federal response either. So anything I guess is possible.

      But what I believe doesn't determine whether something happened or not. As I said before, I really don't have an opinion on the alleged "lunging" in whatever vehicle Pres Trump was in.

    5. DO you believe it possible that Trump could have been heading to the Capitol to stop the breach and divert the protestors, but that the Secret Service wouldn't let him?

      There's no indication Trump received orders from the Kremlin telling him to do that, no.

      There are plenty of indications (Trump's speech, Trump's attempt to subvert the certification process with faked slates of electors, Trump's attempts to badger state election officials into creating faked vote counts for him) to believe Trump thought being there among the insurrectionists combined with all of his behind the scenes perfidy would turn his ill-conceived coup attempt into a photo op.

      Trump throwing a tantrum and heaving his food against the wall has eyewitness veracity and the precedence of Trump having anger management issues going all the way back to when he used to slap his first wife around.

    10. Upset I'm picking on your hero? The stories of her anger are legion.

      Also of her demanding imperiousness. Knowing what I know about handling classified information from my time in the military, that is what those classified documents on her clandestine toilet server were all about. As SecState, she needed to routinely review Top Secret documents but didn't want to haul her fat ass to a scif, so she made underlings break the law by air-gapping it and sending it over unclass e-mail.

      Before you blast back, none of this defends Trump's unhinged ranting and raving.

      Delete
    11. At least back in the old days, Hellary had a sense of humor about it. From Snopes, referring to a Barbara Walters interview:

      Even so, the last word should go to Mrs. Clinton. As she said to Barbara Walters in a 1996 interview: “I mean, you know I have a pretty good arm. If I’d thrown a lamp at somebody, I think you would have known about it.”

  9. A GOP congresswoman--born in Ukraine and having visited there many times, including 6 times since the conflict began--is under withering attack from Repubelicons and Demoncraps.

    Why?

    In statements and interviews, Spartz has pushed for better oversight of the U.S. weaponry flowing into Ukraine

    She called for immediate action when Russia invaded, and still supports Ukraine, but is concerned about corruption.

    Her gravest sin is attempting to stand athwart the frothy hysteria and yell, "Stop!"

    “Growing up in Ukraine and visiting six times since the war started, I have a comprehensive understanding of the situation on the ground,” Spartz said. “The stakes are too high to be reactive without deliberation — as intended for our institution.”
