Poisonous Ukrainian politics.

The European Union was unable to promote the implementation of the Minsk agreements—on the contrary, it did not react when Ukraine was bombing its own population in the Donbass. Had it done so, Vladimir Putin would not have needed to react. Absent from the diplomatic phase, the EU distinguished itself by fueling the conflict. On …

Sums it up perfectly.

Further, the Democrats’ program of crazy nostrums such as Modern Monetary Theory—just print money!—and Green Energy (free wind and solar!) have resulted almost overnight in rampant inflation, severe energy shortages and skyrocketing prices.[1] The article from which this is taken is interesting, if for no other reason that its author has an interesting take on …

What is left of Western moral authority?

It became clear [after the author’s research] that what’s been happening in Syria was not a spontaneous, organic, popular uprising against a tyrant, but a proxy regime-change attempt war in the works since the mid 2000’s against the quite popular Assad. This effort was spearheaded by the US, UK, France, and Israel, using Sunni violent …

Parental Rights, From the Perspective of a Parent

You’ve likely heard about the Dread “Don’t Say Gay” bill. That’s the name bestowed on the bill by its vehement opponents. Other than some organizations that are explicitly Christian – and, of a traditional Christian POV – you’ve likely heard little. That’s because the media is going out of its way to find the most …

Life Has Been Eventful

Mostly good, but sometimes stressful. My dog has recovered. He is elderly, though, and likely won’t live for more than 3-5 years more. He is, however, a wonderful addition to my life. He gives me a reason to get up in the morning (something that I’m not always thrilled with – temps in Lorain, OH …

From The Hollow-Laugh Files

     Legislators continue to ignore a law they greatly dislike. They dislike it because they can’t think of a way to repeal or modify it. But ignoring it is a short cut to disaster. Among other things, it makes plain the fatuity of their pretensions:      Democrats’ environmental activism continues to backfire, as evidenced by …

Start here.

Here’s the real story: Russia’s invasion is the end result of 14 years of provocation by the West, including repeated declarations that Ukraine will join NATO and a U.S.-backed coup d’état in 2014 that displaced a pro-Russian president. “Rickards: I’ve Never Heard So Many Lies.” By James Rickards, ZeroHedge, 3/31/22 (emphasis removed).

The U.S. propaganda deluge.

In foreign relations, here we are today: the US is in a de facto but undeclared war with Russia. No one calls it that, but that’s what it amounts to when the US is providing armaments through intermediaries to the forces that Russia is battling on its border. This intensifies and escalates conflict, same as …

Pearls of expression.

Me and Musk are on the same wavelength. Except for him being born in a different part of the world, growing up to create the largest online payment system and eventually create re-usable rockets that launch into space and land vertically while seeding the lower Earth orbit with satellites that decoupled the internet from the …

The Mrs. Jellyby syndrome.

Here’s a good description of our Iraq misadventure: America has made plenty of blunders as a global superpower, but the Iraq War was the worst. It was entirely optional, easily avoidable, strategically worthless, hideously wasteful, and far too often, morally compromising. As bad as a mistake as Iraq was, in the moment it can be …

Prep for This Year’s Elections

The FIRST task: Let your party know, in clear and unmistakable terms, that NO Representative will be returned who voted to impeach Trump for Jan. 6th events. NONE. Specifically, wave a check in front of them, and inform them that you will NOT be handing it over, should they nominate one of those Quislings. Further, …

Is This a New Thing?

I had need to consult with senate.gov about a committee membership. I noted that many of the Senate biographical information does NOT provide information on party membership, other than listing the members of sub-committees as Majority/Minority. Is this something new? I seem to remember several years ago, it was common to find party affiliation.

Synonym for Leftist

Clueless Elitist. I saw this, and had to respond directly. My answer:

The circus freaks who run the U.S. government

In August 2020, the Washington Post published an opinion piece, “What Americans should learn from Belarus” as part of a flurry of articles setting the narrative that Trump was doomed to lose the election and that he would attempt to seize power by authoritarian means when he did. It directly drew parallels between the BLM …

Fundamental atrophy.

While the war [in Ukraine] is of huge importance geopolitically, it would, however, be misleading to overstate its economic effects, given all the other enormous economic challenges already in place. For example, the Financial Times claims that the war has ‘shattered hopes of a strong global economic recovery from coronavirus’. But this implies that a …

How to Reform Education

As a retired teacher, who experienced a variety of working situations, from very good to unbelievably bad, I developed some ideas about how to both reform the delivered product to American citizens, and how to reduce that cost. Let’s start with the level that is perhaps the most debased from what any sane person would …

Today’s biology lesson.

Here we take a closer look at the rare Siberian fox, Russia’s answer to Bronx Tina or Marjorie Taylor Green: It’s just an image not the usual video link. Click here to go to the South Front page where I found this gem. Sometimes SF pages are unreachable for some strange reason but this link …

Satire to the rescue.

Deranged, loose-cannon Putin: I’m referring, of course, to Putin’s inexplicable and totally unprovoked invasion of Ukraine, a totally peaceful, Nazi-free country which was just sitting there minding its non-Nazi business, singing Kumbaya, and so on, and not in any way collaborating with or being cynically used by GloboCap to menace and eventually destabilize Russia so …

News of the Weird-o

Me. My strange ways of interacting with fellow humanoids caused me no end of torture in childhood. Strange men and boys are tolerated – a little – because of the reputation of scientists of being able to invent something massively profitable (a reputation almost completely undeserved, BTW). But, Nerdy Girls? Nerdy Women? Please! It makes …

The reckless malevolence of the political class.

People intend the natural consequences of their acts. The burgeoning trade deficits are not the result of bad trade deals or ineffective tariff policies. They are the result of a deteriorating U.S. economy which is no longer one of production, but of consumption and debt. A growing economy creates trade surpluses not deficits; it produces …
