Pearls of expression.

If our government took foreign terrorism seriously, we would not have a porous border.[1] But look for more hand wringing over the threat of “terrorism.” And let’s generate more terrorists by killing hundreds of thousands of foreigners becase we’re special. Notes [1] “The War Comes Home.” By Gregory Hood, The Unz Review, 8/20/21.

Must.

Any political settlement that the Afghans pursue to avert bloodshed must include having women at the table. ~ Nancy Pelosi, Statement on Afghanistan, 8/14/21.

More pearls of expression.

This person of apparent European heritage should be charged with cultural appropriation! Comment by Efficacy on “Unusual weapon in road rage…“

Pearls of expression.

It’s no surprise, certainly around here, that the Taliban has won the war without firing a shot, if you don’t count the last 20 years. Comment by gottlieb at Moon of Alabama.

The enemies of our liberty.

Sam Jacobs has provided a disturbing and compelling picture of the Great Reset.[1] In times when words and politics have broken loose from their moorings in common sense, history, custom, and decency, it’s important to educate yourself, at the very least, about how government has completely abandoned the idea of salus populi and its responsibility …

Timid, feckless, useless, peckerwood Republicans.

He [Christopher Roach in The Salazar Option ] only wants to tell us that the revolutionary Left is relentless and ruthless, today just as much as a hundred years ago, and won’t be defeated by gentlemanly forbearance and appeasement—which has basically been the posture of the Republican Party in recent decades. As he comments: Thus, …

Much ado about el zippo.

After all, the average (IFR) death rate of covid is a mere 0.26% of those infected (this is a stat that the media consistently and deliberately refuses to mention to the public). This means that 99.7% of the public is in NO danger from covid whether they are vaccinated or not.[1] Actually, the source reports …

Objective truth.

In the 1960s, students fought for free speech but as a means to give voice to their cutting-edge progressive sensibility, which included contempt for the logic and achievements of existing institutions and for the wisdom contained in old books and ideas. Today’s students, sustained by a campus culture in which that progressive sensibility prevails, wish …

Pearls of expression.

In a “60 Minutes” interview the devious duo [Bill and Hillary] was trying to spin their way out of Jennifer Flowers tattling on her long-term affair with Bill. . . . Bill and Hill were supposed to come off as a normal, wholesome, devoted-to-each-other married couple instead of the more accurate picture that was coming …

Two narratives about Franken-19.

Raúl Ilargi Meijer nicely contrasts the control/manipulation v. common sense thinking about The Virus: “A Tale of Two Narratives.” By Raúl Ilargi Meijer, The Automatic Earth, 7/27/21. I still find the deception and malevolence behind the control narrative astonishing. It’s a great tragedy that such an infestation of evil thinking occurred in the United States …

The giant middle finger from the toads.

The passage of the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 was a classic demonstration of how America works, or doesn’t, depending on your point of view. While we focus on differences between Republicans and Democrats, it’s their uncanny habit of having just a sliver of enough agreement to pass crucial industry-friendly bills …

A giant uncontrolled experiment.

I have the feeling that the story about Covid and the vaccines is about to change dramatically . . . . That is, we will be moving from “the vaccines will save you” to “the vaccines may kill you”. And I don’t mean through unintentional and unfortunate adverse effects, though those are bad enough, and …

Idaho Governor’s Message to Californians.

Poll.

H/t: The Burning Platform.

A concept more honored in the breach of it.

Lead Engineer: It is obvious now that the intelligence agencies are now doing more to undermine the country than to protect it. These agencies need to have a top to bottom process engineering review to see what the objectives are, how work is being managed and who is working on what. Anyone and anything not …

Pearls of expression — covid edition.

Why these [totalitarian] measures when the HCQ and Ivermectin cures are available and when the deaths and cases claimed for Covid were exaggerated in order to increase fear? Why are dissenting scientists and medical professionals silenced? The entire “pandemic” has been conducted outside the realm of evidence. That should tell you that very much is …

Pretty amazing.

But the plot thickened once German authorities realized that Franco A.’s fingerprints matched exactly those of the Syrian immigrant, David Benjamin. They then realized Franco A. and David Benjamin were one and the same person. “German army officer led double life as Syrian immigrant, planned to kill politicians.” By Joseph Fitsanakis, Intelnews.org, 5/21/21.

Iron laws of arithmetic — Part MMMMCCLIX.

If they [the Fed] could have nipped it [inflation] in the bud, they would have done it. The reason they haven’t done it is because they can’t. And because they can’t fight inflation, that’s why they have to pretend that it’s transitory. Because if they could fight it, now is the time to do it. …

Tinkerbell to the rescue.

There is a fallacy that government spending, on infrastructure or anything else, creates jobs or economic growth in the aggregate. Murray Rothbard addressed the issue in great detail in his article “The Fallacy of the ‘Public Sector.” In summary, there is no such thing as the Infrastructure Fairy that takes government spending and magically turns …

The great John Wayne.

Despite his reputation as a stern and stoic man, the Duke was not above laughing at himself. In 1973, Wayne was invited by satirical Harvard University newspaper, The Harvard Lampoon, to receive the “Brass Balls Award.” What started as a joke at his expense became an Army convoy complete with an armored personnel carrier for …
