So a TV show about cops is adopting the BLM mantra that cops are systemic racists? SMH

UPDATE: A friend emails:

Thought experiment. There are five Democrat justices on the Supreme Court. There was a Democrat president who just ran for reelection. He supposedly lost, but virtually all Democrat voters believe that massive fraud in several Republican controlled states caused him to lose. Many Democrat attorneys general file a lawsuit in the US Supreme Court, essentially identical to the one that is pending now.

Does anyone believe for a second that those five Democrat justices wouldn’t do absolutely anything necessary to make sure the Democrat control of the presidency was maintained? Democrats care about power. Democrats do not care about process, or rules. Now we are being asked to be so meticulous about adhering to the rules, that we are to allow a laughably egregious fraud to succeed, and to permit our own throats to be cut by turning over the executive branch to the people who just committed the biggest political crime in history. I hope five US supreme court justices will show just a tiny bit of the creativity, to put it politely, which Democrat justices had when they, for example, found an imaginary abortion right in the US Constitution. We’ll see what happens.

Narciso,

WHY do people have their septa pierced and wear those nose ring things, which as far as I know were only used on male cattle (bulls) hence the "led around by the nose" saying.

Repulsive. And we do not have a poet laureate for Indianapolis, unless Hogsett has appointed one since winning the mayor's race (probably using a Dominion server).

Olayiwola is a 30-year-old Jamaica Plain resident, born and raised in Chicago. When she first moved to Boston in 2010, she was working as an AmeriCorps VISTA member for the National Coalition for the Homeless. It was a volunteer position, so money was tight. She also didn’t know anyone in the city. So she would clean her apartment, have a glass of wine, write some poetry, and then clean a little more.

For about three years, Olayiwola

The federal investigation into President-elect Joe Biden’s son Hunter has been more extensive than a statement from Hunter Biden indicates, according to a person with firsthand knowledge of the investigation.

On Wednesday, Hunter Biden said he had been contacted about a tax investigation out of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware.

In addition to Delaware, the securities fraud unit in the Southern District of New York also scrutinized Hunter Biden’s finances, according to the person with direct knowledge of the investigation. The person said that, as of early last year, investigators in Delaware and Washington were also probing potential money laundering and Hunter Biden’s foreign ties. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.

In addition to the probe into Hunter Biden, federal authorities in the Western District of Pennsylvania are conducting a criminal investigation of a hospital business in which Joe Biden’s brother James was involved. Federal officials have asked questions about James Biden's role in the business, according to a second person with direct knowledge of that investigation, who said it remains ongoing.

https://news.usni.org/2020/12/08/cmc-berger-outlines-how-marines-could-fight-submarines-in-the-future

"The Marine Corps is all in on shifting its spending, personnel and operations to support the Expeditionary Advance Base Operations concept, which would spread out smaller units of Marines across vast expanses of ocean and islands, maneuvering them around to make them tougher for an adversary to target as they conduct their missions.

Commandant of the Marine Corps Gen. David Berger has laid out an idea that, if the Marines are going to pursue their strategy of establishing these EABs to do things like rearming and refueling, air defense and offensive strike, they may as well also help the Navy by searching the local waters for enemy submarines."

My "friend" - call her J - said the following 2 things to me:

~SCOTUS rejected Emergency Injuction for Parnell/Kelly because it was not "outcome determinative" (e.g. 20 EVs).

~If SCOTUS grants Emergency I for TX, it is because it IS outcome determinative (e.g. 62 EVs).

After Nagorno-Karabakh boffins assumed the end of armor. The tank is dead, long live the drone.

Well, yeah, if stuff is flying around out there that you weren't aware of and can't defend against, that makes sense.

You don't have to abandon armor if you have the ability to hide it, camouflage it or defend it with anti-drone measures.

I'm not so sure of sharing anti-drone technology though. I'd rather we gave them blow-up tank decoys like those that were used in Britain in WWII. I guess nowadays we'd have to provide them with a heat source to fool the drone sensors.

KK,

The Jim Biden news is not new. This is from March of this year.

https://www.politico.com/news/2020/03/09/james-biden-health-care-ventures-123159

"The Federal Bureau of Investigation raided a health care business linked to Joe Biden’s brother in late January, seizing boxes of documents.

The raid of an Americore Health hospital represented a deepening of the legal morass surrounding James Biden’s recent venture into health care investing at a time when questions about the business dealings of Joe Biden’s relatives, and their alleged connection to the former vice president’s public service, continue to dog his presidential campaign."

John Schroeder on the California lockdowns.

"The California lockdowns are in some ways very mysterious...Yet not only is California continuing with them, in a apparent fit of pique, since many in the state are ignoring the edicts, they used the Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) system yesterday to tell everyone to “STAY AT HOME.”

"Bailouts for states like California have been at the heart of the debate over stimulus in Congress. California needs that money. (They shouldn’t get it, but they truly need it.) One has to wonder if those ordering these unnecessary shutdowns in California are doing so purposefully to worsen the fiscal crisis to a point where the federal government will have no choice but to act."

That jibes with my thinking. Oh, goody Biden is the new president, it's time to unleash the atomics on our economy so we get a bigger bailout.

https://wattsupwiththat.com/2020/12/09/anthropocene-human-made-materials-now-weigh-as-much-as-all-living-biomass-say-scientists/

"The idea of a natural world that dwarfed humanity and its creations long persisted, even into modern times – only to run, lately, into concerns that climate was changing, and species were dying through our actions. How could that be, with us so small, and nature so large?

Now a new study in Nature by a team of scientists from the Weizman Institute in Israel upends that perspective. Our constructions have now – indeed, spookily, just this year – attained the same mass as that of all living organisms on Earth. The human enterprise is growing fast, too, while nature keeps shrinking. The science-fiction scenario of an engineered planet is already here."

I blame China's "growth spurt."

Manuel Transmission

This came over the transom without attribution:

Now you understand why there was never any action against the Clintons or Obama, how they destroyed emails and evidence and phones and servers, how they spied and wiretapped, how they lied to FISA, had conversations on the tarmac, sent emails to cover their asses after key meetings, how Comey and Brennan and Clapper never were brought to any justice, how the FBI and CIA lied, how the Steele Dossier was passed along, how phones got factory reset, how leak after leak to an accomplice media went unchecked, why George Soros is always in the shadows, why Romney and Paul and Bush and McCain were all involved, why they screamed Russia and pushed a sham impeachment, why no one ever goes to jail, why no one is ever charged, why nothing ever happens. Why there was no wrongdoing in the FISA warrants, why the Durham report was delayed. Why Hunter will walk scott free. Why the FBI sat on the laptop. Why the Biden’s connection to China was overlooked as was unleashed the perfect weapon, a virus that could be weaponized politically to bring down the greatest ever economy and usher in unverifiable mail in voting. Why the media is 24/7 propaganda and lies, why up is down and down is up, right is wrong and wrong is right. Why social media silences the First Amendment and speaks over the President of the United States. This has been the plan by the Deep State all along. They didn’t expect Trump to win in 2016. He messed up their plans. Delayed it a little. They weren’t about to let it happen again. Covid was weaponized, Governors helped shut down their states, the media helped shame and kill the economy, and the super lucky unverifiable mail in ballots were just the trick to make sure the career politician allegedly with hands in Chinese payrolls that couldn’t finish a sentence or collect a crowd, miraculously became the most popular vote recipient of all time.

You have just witnessed a coup, the overthrow of the US free election system, the end of our constitutional republic, and the merge of capitalism into the slide toward socialism. What will happen next? Expect the borders to open up. Increased immigration. Expect agencies like CBP and INS and Homeland Security to be muzzled or even deleted. Law enforcement will see continued defunding. The electoral college will be gone. History erased. Two Supreme Court Justices might be removed. The Supreme Court will be packed. Your 2nd Amendment will be attacked. If you have a manufacturing job or oil industry job, get ready. If you run a business, brace for impact. Maybe you’ll be on the hook for slavery reparations, or have your suburbs turned into Section 8 housing. Your taxes are gonna go up, and businesses will pay more. I could go on and on. There is no real recovery from this. The elections from here on will be decided by New York City, Chicago, and California. The Republic will be dead. Mob rule and appeasement will run rampant. The candidate who offers the most from the Treasury will get the most votes. But the votes voted won’t matter, just the ones received and counted. That precedent has been set.

“Benjamin Franklin was walking out of Independence Hall after the Constitutional Convention in 1787, when someone shouted out, ‘Doctor, what have we got? A republic or a monarchy?’”

Franklin responded, “A republic, if you can keep it.”

Ladies and gentlemen, you will now lose your Republic. You turned from God. You turned from family. You turned from country. You embraced degeneracy culture. You celebrated and looked to fools. You worshipped yourselves selfishly as you took for granted what men died to give you. You disregarded history and all it teaches. On your watch, America just died a little. It’s likely she’ll never be the same again.

Bongino is especially valuable to me because he worked as a policeman before going to work with the Secret Service and is very good at explaining procedures and investigative stuff.

Dilley is a young guy, probably in his late 30's, who is a true Trump supporter and has made a business with his podcast, and has a sense of humor.

Yesterday both he and Bongino were so incensed at You Tube for their blatant censorship that I may have to locate where they migrate to.

Three lines from the David Horowitz writing Iggy linked:

"Real socialism hadn’t been tried, and therefore hadn’t failed. Nothing could capture the invincible arrogance of leftists so clearly as this pathetic sophistry to cover up their crimes."

"...virtually every page of his book testifies to the fact that the Panthers were a black mafia, and that their ethical code was that of common thugs and killers, masked by their political aura."

“ '[Fanon] states that it is the oppressed people’s right to believe that they should kill their oppressor in order to obtain their freedom,” writes Forbes. “We just modified it to mean anyone who’s in our way.' ”
