Formerly Unconscionable Connections

News item: Former Police Officer Recounts Witnessing ‘Industrialized’ Organ Harvesting in China The following are questions our society would almost certainly have insisted be asked in another era. Have you asked what is the source of your life-saving organ? To what soul or grieving family may you direct thanks for it? If you asked, did …

Our Happy Birthday Weekend

This is going to be a bittersweet year. Like “celebrating” your beloved relative’s birthday, shortly after they got the news that their cancer is back again. You will see the candles through a veil of tears, find your voice quivering, as you realize that this may well be the last time you will sing those …

Reversing the Exodus

(This post is modified from its original appearance at GraniteGrok.) I am a Zionist Jew interested in the goings-on in Israel, my spiritual home, and thus subscribe to a variety of news sources.  Some are on the Right, some are on the Left, some are a mix, a couple are wingnut, but I peruse them …

The F-86 Sabre jet.

This is from an interesting article about air combat in Korea: As in the [case] of Spitfires during the Battle of Britain, F86s were fighting against heavy odds in Korea. Approximately 800 MiGs were based in Manchuria and China. The Soviet Union had supplied China with more sweptwing fighters than the United States had even …

Steps to Returning to Normal

Last night, I took a new step on the Road to Normal. I went to my ham radio clubhouse, and just hung around for a while. I’d originally had some purpose in going – I needed to pick up a couple of coax cables, and also to run my Fundraising Committee monthly meeting. But, rather …

Now we know.

The fed hasn’t started to end QE yet. In fact, it hasn’t even set a date to start the taper. All the fed’s money printers have done is admit that they have begun to discuss when to think about a time for the start of tapering $120b per month in asset purchases.[1] And that’s definite. …

Quick Takes

—– “White Americans who have never had a racist thought in their lives are tired of being constantly accused of racism.” Agree. I try and want to live by those famous and noble words: —– —– I really want to.  But, dammit, it’s getting harder and harder to do so when I see instance after …

An Off-the-Wall Idea

Right now, Trump is getting large – even Yuge! – crowds wherever he appears in public. Many are hoping for another run in 2024. Now, I basically like Trump. He brought in a freshness of viewpoint to the Oval Office, and Washington itself. He certainly deserved to be returned to office again in 2020 – …

Cartoon: Jabbed vs. Unjabbed

This should not need much introduction, whether on the subject matter or the source / inspiration of. —– —– And, as is my wont, reprising an older one: —– —– Which, really, defines the vast majority of the Left’s argument. Envy is one of the most corrosive of sins, whether in the Ten Commandments or …

The Babbitt Family Should NOT Settle…

…unless that involves a COMPLETE public release of ALL information in the case. I do understand the natural tendency of families to want to just get things over. To ‘bring closure’ to the death. However, they should remember that Ashlii was with those protesters, because she believed that the integrity of the Republic was a …

True up to a point.

In conclusion, I think it abundantly clear that what we have been told about what took place [involving Sergei and Yulia Skripal] on 4th March in the beautiful city of Salisbury is not, in fact, true. It is clear that something else happened, and much of what we have seen since then has been theatre …

Pearls of expression.

On the topic of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace views on equity and antiracism in nuclear policymaking: So, nuclear power is now racist. Poor [Deputy Russian Foreign Minister Sergei] Ryabkov, poor [Russian Foreign Minister Sergey] Lavrov–now you understand why Lavrov is a chain smoker? You would become one when you have to deal with …

Hitler’s Missing Speech

So I’ve “gotten into it” any number of times about Hitler being a Socialist, that you can’t say NAZI without understanding it comes from “National Socialist German Worker’s Party”, and so on.  And there is plenty of evidence that he was, indeed, a Socialist. —– —– I was born and raised in the “People’s Republic …

Liberty’s last gleaming.

Suffice it to say that when and if a true history of the FBI is ever written, it will not only track the rise of the American police state but it will also chart the decline of freedom in America: how a nation that once abided by the rule of law and held the government …

Eternal hostility to legacy Americans.

In the 1960s, African American’s opposed to the Vietnam war adopted the slogan “No Viet Cong ever called me n1g.ger” — the real enemy, they surmised, was white people at home in the United States. Legacy Americans must make a similar realisation: “No Chicom ever called me racist”. The biggest threat today isn’t Russia or …

Quick Takes

So I needed blood drawn today.  Went to the local lab clinic and there were “You must wear a mask” on signs everywhere. I didn’t. Nobody said anything.  Maybe they assumed I’ve been Jabbed.  But it didn’t say anything about “If you’re vaccinated, no mask” just Thou Shalt Wear a Face Diaper plastered everywhere. F …

Who is this toad?

As of September 2020, there were 31 Soros-backed DAs in the United States. That might not sound like a lot, but it includes the DAs of Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Portland, San Francisco, and St. Louis. All told, tens of millions of Americans are now victims of the Soros racket in the form …

I’m OFF!

Nothing major, just a quick trip to visit family, and look for a 2nd house closer to them. The summer heat really exhausts me, we’re missing out on time with the grands/great-grands, and I’d feel better if I have access to different parts of the country, if the need to GOOT – Get Out Of …

Just Give Me Yavneh

The title is opaque; this is deliberate.  All will be clear by the end.  And my apologies – the length got away from me. —– 29-ERS On my old blog I wrote several essays, primarily focused on gun control but not exclusively, to the effect that so many people I know – especially, bafflingly, my …
