Miss M, the same climate forecast people said 12” of snow in this storm last night. Changed it to 2” at lunchtime, and now say 3” delivered with 2” more to arrive overnight.

They must spell genius “I D ten T”

Not all sources of electric power are equal.

It takes 2 coal workers, 169 solar workers or 1,100 wind workers to equal 1 natural gas worker for the same electric power flow.

.I am reading Raven 5, the autobiography of Ed Connor, who flew as an air/gunner out of North Eastern Australia in WWII. Ed writes about skip bombing, which is the same principle as throwing stones across water. Ed writes that, one day two aircraft skipped bombed a ship and they were so low that the ship's log book flew into the bomb bay of the second aircraft.

Radio operator/gunner. Sorry.

The Iranians are having a tough year with those heavy losses. An unfledged dhow was just stopped in the Arabian Sea carrying a ton of heroin.

I wonder where that came from?

The narcoterrorists, the Iranians, the ISI, the Chinese and the Russians are all financing their adventurism with the drug trade. Funny how not one major American politician has called out the Chinese for the fentanyl crisis. That's where the precursors come from.

China is a police state. Nothing moves without their knowledge or support.

Hey, diddle,diddle, the cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon,
The little dog laughed to see such fun
And the dish ran away with the spoon.

And with that I say howdy and slaap lekker all in my final thoughts before I succumb to sleep!

"What an awful year this was."

2021 is Over at Last. Thank Goodness

Government credibility is so last year. Thanks Clarice.

clarice,

Excellent column! Thanks for finding Sheryl Atkisson’s list as it will help me point out to my wavering daughter how she has been bamboozled. Coupled with Dr. Malone’s interview, it’s a one-two punch.

And you are quite right to warn everyone to be on their toes. Evil never sleeps.

Tom Bowler

Great Pieces, Clarice. And when you warn that Democrats will use every trick in the book this year, you are right on the money. I never dreamed they would be so blatant about stealing the presidential election, but then I naively believed there would be someone, somewhere who would blow the whistle on it.

I have no idea what they will do this year and in 2024, but I'm certain that whatever it is, it will eclipse election night 2020.

Anyway, thanks for those Pieces.

And on that note, Happy New Year everybody!

clarice

Thanks! I reproduced Attkisson's very long list because it is so thorough and so damning.

Visiting friends. This morning they happened to have CBS Sunday morning on the tube while getting breakfast ready.

I didn’t say a word, but I could have done a two-hour seminar on the dissembling "reporting" designed to misrepresent the presidential election counting last year. Clearly on purpose. Clearly a disservice to viewers.

Permits illegally obtained?

We are often told to “trust the science,” but the science of trust is to earn it; you can’t force people to trust you. "

Money crunch doesn't mean you can stop paying the graft.
