Channeling King Solomon there - from the London Daily Mail:

Lia Thomas and other transgender athletes are banned by world swimming's governing body FINA from competing against women: Separate 'open category' will be set up

    • FINA, world swimming's governing body, adopted a new policy to prohibit transgender women from competing in women's races
    • Under the new rules a transgender women can only compete in women's races if they have completed their transition by age 12
    • They will then have to prove that they are continuously suppressing their testosterone levels
    • A separate open category will be created for swimming competitions in future
    • The decision came after the International Olympic Committee left it up to individual sports federations to develop rules about transgender athletes
    • A task force concluded that biological women 'cannot compete' against anyone who went through male puberty who will have higher testosterone levels
    • The rule will prevent Lia Thomas from competing against women in international events leading up to the Olympics

There 'ya go.  Puberty is when the body starts differentiating so is an excellent demarcation point.  Very good call.

Get WOKE? Go broke... Disney

Looks like the mouse is taking it in the chops...  From Deadline:

Dinosaurs Toss ‘Lightyear’ Out Of Orbit At Weekend Box Office As ‘Jurassic World Dominion’ Feasts On $68M+ 4-Day – Sunday AM Update
Blame the fact that it doesn’t appeal to girls, blame Disney+ for stealing family moviegoers, blame the lack of an ensemble Toy Story cast, heck, blame everything as Disney/Pixar’s Lightyear didn’t do its magic by internal studio or industry standards this weekend with $51M, close to a third below its lowest $70M pre-release projection.

Interesting in that the article runs all over the place trying to explain the poor weekend take.  Not one mention of the lesbian characters or the WOKE-ness in the story line.  The majority of people out there: #1) - don't give a flying fsck about other people's sexual orientation;  #2) - regardless, do not want to have it shoved in their faces and #3) - do not want it as content in a family film.

Simple as that. Wonder if/when the groomers at Pixar will wake up and realize that they are in a very very small minority and not the center of everyone's universe. Narcissism is considered a mental disorder, not a virtue to be amplified.

We all know about it - he was riding with toe clips (stupid move at his age) and his foot got stuck.
From the NY Post:

Joe Biden falls off bike as he rides near Delaware beach home

President Trump had this observation - five seconds of pure video comedy gold.

And America's Newspaper of Record has this worrying news:

Aides Worried Biden May Have Concussion As He Starts Speaking Coherently
Aides are fearful President Biden may have suffered a severe concussion from his bike wreck this morning, as he has suddenly begun speaking coherently.

"He got into the presidential limo and said verbatim, 'I think rapidly adding trillions of dollars in liquidity could be accelerating inflation!'—that's when I knew something was wrong," said Secret Service agent Paul Mancuso. "If he doesn't start slurring his speech and mumbling incoherently soon, we'll have to get him to a doctor."

Reporters on the scene of the crash said Biden could be heard screaming 'Putiiiin!' as his bike toppled sideways. Dr. Jill Biden immediately rushed to her husband, prepared to give a lecture on education. "I'm ok, I'm ok!" said Biden, quickly getting back to his feet. "In fact, I was just thinking how selecting people for nationally significant roles based on intersectionality as opposed to merit will likely lead to harming minorities due to leadership incompetence," said Biden to a stunned crowd. "What? Why is everyone staring at me?"

More at the last site.

Jeff Childers writes the excellent Coffee & Covid morning newsletter and he had this to say:

Yesterday, in a short note, I reassured liberal C&C readers noting that to me, we are all on the same team — whatever you want to call it. Surprisingly, that remark generated the majority of yesterday’s comments. After some thought, I’m betting it resonated so much because it reflects a broader social realignment.

Someone commented that the labels “republican” and “democrat” don’t even matter anymore. They meant a lot of republicans are legacy RINOs who supported mandates and, rather than being principled and values-driven, are rudderless voids following the same corporate-media playbook as democrats.

I generally agree with that, but it’s even bigger. There was a halcyon time before 2020 when we could afford to think of the world in terms like “republicans versus democrats versus libertarians versus greens.” Those traditional parties are gone now, even if most folks can’t see it yet. Now, there are only two teams: human beings and globalist kleptocrats.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a “republican” or a “democrat.” Either way you lose, badly, if the WEF/WHO/UN/CDC/FDA/NIH/WB/Gates/Soros team wins. Unfortunately, and I really mean it’s unfortunate, the democrat party is now 100% owned by the WEF+ team. Republicans are a mixed bag; and we still have a viable chance to replace a lot of the bad Liz Cheney-like ones. That’s why the Republicans are our last, best hope.

Replacement won’t fix the democrat party right now. It can’t. There’s no bench of pro-freedom democrat candidates left anywhere to replace the current ones with. And even if they did pop up somewhere, the machine would snap online and grind them into bits.

Call it what you want, but we’re all on the same team now. Some people just don’t know it yet, but they will, hopefully before it’s too late. I think it WILL happen; I think it is already happening. It’s just hard to tell because corporate media has been WEFfed and they don’t report on their own losses.

An excuse to implement draconian restrictions on its citizenry - from Vice:

Chinese Officials Are Weaponizing COVID Health Tracker to Block Protests
Chinese bank depositors planning a protest about their frozen funds saw their health code mysteriously turn red and were stopped from traveling to the site of a rally, confirming fears that China’s vast COVID-tracking system could be weaponized as a powerful tool to stifle dissent.

A red health code designated the would-be protesters as suspected or confirmed COVID-19 patients, limiting their movement and access to public transportation. Their rallies in the central Henan province this week were thwarted as some were forced into quarantine and others detained by police.

A 38-year-old software engineer was among hundreds who could not access their savings at four rural banks since mid-April. She had planned to travel from her home in Jiangxi province to Zhengzhou, Henan’s capital city, to join a group petition this week to demand her money back. But her health code turned from green to red shortly after she bought a train ticket on Sunday. She said a nucleic test for COVID she took the night before came back negative and her hometown has not reported any infection recently.

How quickly it changed from "for your benefit" to "all the better to control you" - the word you are looking for is Tyranny and we are about a year from implementing this here.  The 'elite' need a second pandemic to drive it home.  Monkeypox is proving to be too little, too late and the wrong demographic.

Turns out that conservative Glen Beck has taken up painting and he is really good at it.
artnet.news unleashed quite the biased report (scroll down - they did not give a link):

Art Industry News: We Regret to Inform You That Glenn Beck Is an Artist Now, and His Paintings Are Just as Bizarre as You Suspected
Glenn Beck Is a Painter Now – We regret to inform you that the latest right-wing figure to reinvent himself as an artist is Glenn Beck (though he rejects the label “artist”). The conspiracy theorist and political commentator picked up painting during the pandemic and is now displaying his work at Park City Fine Arts in Utah. Proceeds from the sales will fund Beck’s charitable work. Subjects include Teddy Roosevelt, a 1936 boxing match between Joe Louis and Max Schmeling, and, um, depictions of Jesus Christ as a prisoner in Mao’s China and a concentration camp. “I don’t want to make [art] about politics,” Beck said. “This history counts to all of us.”

Classic logical falacy - an ad hominem attack.  They can not find fault with his painting which is actually quite good so they resort to calling him names. "conspiracy theorist" ???  really???  These days, a conspiracy theorist is only a few months away from a spolier aleart.  They do link to this article at Deseret News which is unbiased and actually shows some of his work.  The Deseret News story does not tell you what to think; they present the facts, Glen and a few of his paintings and let you decide for yourself:

A dispatch from inside Glenn Beck’s art show
Glenn Beck is dressed comfortably — light-colored jeans and a T-shirt that reads “Love Thy Neighbor,” underneath a dress shirt left unbuttoned to add a hint of formality. This is Beck’s art show, which took place in Park City over the weekend, and the man of the hour dresses as he pleases.

Beck isn’t sporting a hat tonight, though he’s accustomed to wearing his many: radio host, author, controversial pundit. But don’t call him an artist. I made that mistake, and Beck was swift to correct me.

“I don’t consider myself an artist,” Beck says, as we stand in a room with two dozen of his original oil paintings flanking us.

Here are two of his paintings - both of Jesus.  First being put through a Communist Chinese "struggle session" - being indoctrinated, the second as a Jew in a National Socialist concentration camp.

Civil War #2 has been talked about increasingly over the last ten years.  It is happening now in some theaters. Irons in the Fire offers this quote attributed to Soviet Dissident Alexander Solzhenitsyn. Solzhenitsyn grew up under communism.  He knows it inside and out.  His voice is a warning to We The People about the deep-state:

"The most terrifying force of death, comes from the hands of men who wanted to be left alone. They try, so very hard, to mind their own business and provide for themselves and those they love. They resist every impulse to fight back, knowing the forced and permanent change of life that will come from it. They know, that the moment they fight back, their lives as they have lived them, are over.

The moment the men who wanted to be left alone are forced to fight back, it is a form of suicide. They are literally killing off who they used to be. Which is why, when forced to take up violence, these men who wanted to be left alone, fight with unholy vengeance against those who murdered their former lives. They fight with raw hate, and a drive that cannot be fathomed by those who are merely play-acting at politics and terror. TRUE TERROR will arrive at these people's door, and they will cry, scream, and beg for mercy... but it will fall upon the deaf ears of the men who just wanted to be left alone."

Word...

Interesting story but it has faded from the mainstream media.  Quickly - a big splash for a day and then ...crickets...

Well crap - RIP Peter Lamborn Wilson

| No Comments

From The New York Times:

Peter Lamborn Wilson, Advocate of ‘Poetic Terrorism,’ Dies at 76
Peter Lamborn Wilson, a counterculture intellectual, anarchist, poet, musicologist and utopian who coined the term “temporary autonomous zone,” which became a cri de coeur for the organizers behind both Burning Man and Occupy Wall Street — as well as for ravers, cyberpunks and other late-20th-century antiestablishmentarians — died on May 23 at his home in Saugerties, N.Y. He was 76.

The cause was heart failure, said Jim Fleming, his publisher.

Mr. Wilson’s book “T.A.Z.: The Temporary Autonomous Zone, Ontological Anarchy, Poetic Terrorism,” was a slim volume first published by Autonomedia, Mr. Fleming’s company, in 1991. Mr. Wilson wrote it under a pseudonym, Hakim Bey. (He liked to pretend that his made-up alter ego was a real person.)

The book’s central premise was that one could create one’s own stateless society — the goal of anarchy — with simple and poetic acts like creating public art and communal exercises like dinner parties. It quickly acquired a cult following, particularly among those who frequented the aisles of alternative bookstores looking for inspiration on how to sidestep or disrupt the capitalist mainstream.

He was one of the original culture jammers.  Unfortunately, a lot of the pantie-fa crowd are paying lip-service to his writings but they totally miss the point.  Big difference from what Mr. Bey was promoting.  He was one of the good guys.

Canada - circling the drain

Pushing you to eat bugs - from the Vancouver, BC City News:

Health Canada plan to require warning labels on ground beef, pork raises concerns
Health Canada is expected to start putting labels on products containing high levels of saturated fats, sugars, or sodium, but concerns are being raised as two of the most affordable sources of protein are not being granted exemptions.

The agency is not exempting ground beef or pork, a move Sylvain Charlebois, senior director of the Agri-food Analytics Lab at Dalhousie University, feels will deter people from buying those products in general.

They are trying everything in their arsenal to "nudge" people into not eating meat.  Bugs are a good source of protein and can be grown in a factory. Soylent Green - free for everyone.  This "nudge" is nutrition.  Other "nudges" are based on water use, pasture use, those nasty methane farts, etc...

Trust us - we know what is good for you.  Meanwhile, they fly private jets to Switzerland and dine on A5 Wagyu.

Quote of the year - George Orwell

| No Comments

Of course it would be Orwell - he is the man of our times:

“The truth is that, to many people calling themselves Socialists, revolution does not mean a movement of the masses with which they hope to associate themselves; it means a set of reforms which ‘we’, the clever ones, are going to impose upon ‘them’, the Lower Orders.”
— George Orwell

The idea that this is the son of the sitting *Resident should give a case of the blue-blind paralytic willies to every member of Congress, every Law Enforcement Officer, every member of our Military. From Zero Hedge:

Hunter's Hooker Scored $20,000 PPP Loan As Joe Biden Entered White House
A Las Vegas prostitute featured throughout Hunter Biden's abandoned laptop scored a $20,207 Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan for having a "female owned sole proprietorship," right after Joe Biden moved into the White House, according to the Daily Wire.

The woman, Cheryl Deboves, listed herself as being in the field of "Independent Artists, Writers, and Performers."

The Daily Wire article is behind their paywall.  A bit more:

Texts between the two reveal she was trying to help Hunter juggle his excessive whore mongering.

"Honestly babe the problem is you have too many girls there," she texted him in August 2018. "I understand you like a lot of girls but that’s fine do one at a time at the tops to Which is fine but just hire the second girl for like 1 hour."

More texts suggest that the younger Biden and Deboves - who in 2017 plead no contest to a prostitution charge, include references to orgies and drug deals gone wrong.

And Hunter is being Hunter of course:

In one text exchange, Deboves asked Hunter to swoop in and save her from a ruffian.

"Eric keeps threatening me, and now he has someone named keaton threatening me too who just got out of prison or whatever… Can you please help me? Like he scares me a lot. I hate it when men threaten women," she wrote - to which Hunter ghosted her until he wanted sex again.

Nice guy - what were you expecting?  He is a Biden. Deboves and her roommate both received PPP loans.  Both have criminal records.  PPP loans were not supposed to be distributed to criminals.  Our tax dollars at work...

A simple observation really - from One America News Network:

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez Says Congress Is Corrupt, Decayed
Far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), once again, took to social media to disparage US institutions. In a recent Facebook livestream, the New York lawmaker accused her colleagues on both sides of the aisle in Congress of being corrupt.

The Democrat pointed to the failure of the Build Back Better Act, among other progressive legislation, to pass as evidence. Additionally, Ocasio-Cortez claimed she’s not among those influenced by the depravity. However, critics have pointed out her radical policies would alter the very fabric of the country.

Classic case of projection. Everyone is crazy except for me.

Today could be interesting - from Anonymous Conservative:

The Supreme Court stops issuing opinions in late June to early July normally. And if you go here and scroll down to the calendar, today is the last “opinion issuance day” out there right now. Opinions begin being released at 10 AM, at 10 minute intervals, and could include both abortion and some flavor of a right to carry a firearm. If both those came out, expect things to get extra spicy around the nation. Probably worse than the BLM riots.

A long hot summer - ramping up to the November mid-term elections.

UPDATE:  Curious.  Three opinions none of which have to do with Roe v Wade in any sense at all.
This appears to be the last day for issuance - they take July and August off.  Punt?

From the London Daily Mail:

Japanese adventurer, 83, becomes the oldest person to complete a solo and nonstop 5,500 mile voyage across the Pacific Ocean as he completes the trip in a 19-foot yacht in 69 days

    • Kenichi Horie, 83, is oldest person to complete solo, nonstop trip across Pacific
    • However, the Japanese adventurer said he was still 'in the middle of my youth'
    • He spent more than two months alone on the sea as he conquered the waves

Japanese adventurer Kenichi Horie, 83, has become the oldest person to complete a solo, nonstop voyage across the Pacific Ocean — and he said he was still 'in the middle of my youth' and not finished yet.

Horie returned home as he crossed the Kii Strait off Japan's western coast early Saturday, completing his 5,500 mile trans-Pacific solo voyage in 69 days after leaving a yacht harbour in San Francisco in late March.

He has been sailing for a long time:

It was the latest record-setting achievement for the octogenarian adventurer, who in 1962 became the first person in the world to successfully complete a solo nonstop voyage across the Pacific from Japan to San Francisco.

Sixty years later, he traveled the opposite route.

His sailboat was 19 feet long - perfect size.  Big enough to be comfortable and small enough to be able to handle in all kinds of weather.  His website is here: Suntory Mermaid - quite the adventure.

I covered it when it happened in 2004 (here, here and here) as well as a couple times after.
Today is "Killdozer Day"  From Infogalactic:

Rampage
On June 4, 2004, Heemeyer drove his armored bulldozer through the wall of his former business, the concrete plant, the Town Hall, the office of the local newspaper that editorialized against him, the home of a former judge's widow, and a hardware store owned by another man Heemeyer named in a lawsuit, as well as others. Owners of all the buildings that were damaged had some connection to Heemeyer's disputes.

The rampage lasted 2 hours 7 minutes, destroying 13 buildings, knocking out natural gas service to City Hall and the concrete plant, and damaging a truck and part of a utility service center. Despite the great damage to property, no one besides Heemeyer was killed. The cost of the damage was estimated at $7 million.

Zoning problems - small-town politics.  He had purchased some land and the city planners screwed him over. More here and here.

The Doctors weigh in - genders

| No Comments

Now we know for sure - from America's Newspaper of Record:

Report: Despite Attempts To Add More Genders, There Still Seem To Be Just 2 Plus 767 Mental Disorders
Despite decades of research attempting to add additional genders, scientists have finally admitted there are still only two genders plus a growing list of 767 mental disorders.

"Yup, looks like it's still just 'male' and 'female,'" said research scientist Dr. Viggs Vinstone, looking up from his microscope in frustration. "As it turns out, the rest of the genders were really just a collection of mental illnesses and quirky personality traits we accidentally misclassified as genders. Sorry—our mistake!"

Researchers confirmed that the growing list of exciting new genders that include classifications such as "non-binary," "demon," and "cake" aren't really genders at all, but instead a snowballing collection of bizarre personality disorders that continues to grow by the minute as the human race loses touch with reality.

"Wow, this looks pretty bad! How did we miss that?" said Dr. Vinstone. "Maybe we should start helping all these poor confused people!"

Findings also suggested that the vast majority of the 767 mental illnesses can be cured by simply telling people "Science has found there are only two genders." Medical professionals are already modifying their treatment plans accordingly.

UPDATE: At publishing time, scientists confirmed the list has grown from 767 to 829 mental illnesses.
UPDATE: It's now at 932.
UPDATE: 1,326.

Yep - Paul's letter to the Corinthians 13:11 comes to mind:

When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

Speaker Pelosi is a notorious drunk (Senator Boxwine).
Looks like her hubby is cut from the same cloth. From TMZ:

NANCY PELOSI HUSBAND ARRESTED FOR DUI IN NAPA
Nancy Pelosi's husband, Paul Pelosi, was arrested this weekend for DUI ... TMZ has learned.

The House Speaker's spouse was arrested just before midnight Saturday night in Napa County, and then booked hours later into jail on two counts -- driving under the influence and driving with a blood alcohol content level of 0.08 or higher ... both misdemeanors.

No booking photos of course. Swept under the rug in 3... 2.

The People's Republic of Chicago of course - from the Chicago FOX News affiliate:

5 seriously hurt, including 16-year-old girl, after fight breaks out on West Side
Five people were shot in Chicago's West Garfield Park neighborhood Sunday morning.

The shooting occurred in the 800 block of South Karlov.

At about 1:32 a.m., the victims were standing on the sidewalk with a group of people when a fight broke out, police said.

No mention but I am seriously betting that it was black on black violence.  That guarantees that this will never be reported by any of the mainstream media.  Does not fit the narrative.

Looks like some people really messed up on both of them. Too early to know all the details but...
From The Buffalo News:

Authorities investigating if retired federal agent knew of Buffalo mass shooting plans in advance
Law enforcement officers are investigating whether a retired federal agent had about 30 minutes advance notice of a white supremacist's plans to murder Black people at a Buffalo supermarket, two law enforcement officials told The Buffalo News.

Authorities believe the former agent – believed to be from Texas – was one of at least six individuals who regularly communicated with accused gunman Payton Gendron in an online chat room where racist hatred was discussed, the two officials said.

The two law enforcement sources with direct knowledge of the investigation stated these individuals were invited by Gendron to read about his mass shooting plans and the target location about 30 minutes before Gendron killed 10 people at Tops Markets on Jefferson Avenue on May 14.

And from FOX News

Texas authorities respond to question of why didn’t police engage shooter immediately
Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steven McCraw said Friday, when asked why police at Robb Elementary School didn’t engage the shooter immediately, said “the on-scene commander at the time believed that it had transitioned from an active shooter to a barricaded subject.”

“A decision was made on the scene – I wasn’t there -- that this was a barricaded subject situation, there was time to retrieve the keys and wait for a tactical team with the equipment to go ahead and breach the door and take on the subject,” he continued. “At that point, that was the decision, that was the thought process.”

Yeah - all the while 911 calls were coming in from the students inside the school.
Neither of these were handled well at all.

From Peter at Bayou Renaissance Man:

One might think O'Rourke's "outrage" was genuine, until one learns that he had seat-warmers keeping chairs open for him so that he and his party could get close to the stage without security noticing until it was too late, and had photographers and reporters standing by to record his "outrage" for posterity (and for use in his election campaign).

I'm going to use O'Rourke's and Obama's comments as a litmus test for the forthcoming elections.  Any candidate who approves of them, or echoes them, is not worth my attention or my vote.  Anyone who approves of such utter lack of class and compassion is nothing more or less than a waste of oxygen, IMHO.

More at the site.  Obama did not hesitate to tap-dance on the victim's graves for political gain either. A tragedy like this really highlights who the a**holes are.

A connection - SSRI and shootings

| No Comments

Interesting connection being made at Red State:

Could SSRI Antidepressants Be One of the Causes Behind These Mass Shootings?
Mass shootings in the United States have increased dramatically over the last few decades. Those trying to explain the phenomenon have blamed gun laws, social media, white nationalism, extremist politics, pandemic policies—the list goes on. But what if there’s another factor at work here?

Guess what else has soared in the last few decades? The use of anti-depression medication, especially SSRIs. It was in 1987 that the first selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor, commonly known as an SSRI, was developed and it quickly became the standard. You’ve probably heard its name–Prozac. Other SSRIs were soon produced, and SSRIs are now the most prescribed antidepressant in the US.

But this medication has some side effects:

But there’s another side to these drugs, one that must be taken into account. Read the potential side effects that the FDA requires to be printed on the label of every antidepressant:

Anxiety, agitation, panic attacks, insomnia, irritability, hostility, aggressiveness, impulsivity, akathisia, hypomania, and mania have been reported in adult and pediatric patients being treated with antidepressants for major depressive disorder as well as for indications, both psychiatric and nonpsychiatric.

Lots more at the site - this could be a major contributing factor.  Lots of other contributing factors too - broken families, social media, marijuana use.
