‘What A Coincidence’: Massive Donations Come To Light After AOC Defends TikTok From Possible Ban
An organization that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is a member of has accepted sizable donations from ByteDance, the Chinese parent company of the social media platform TikTok, which the democratic socialist recently defended from a possible nationwide ban.

Jake Denton, a technology policy expert at the Heritage Foundation, noted that Ocasio-Cortez is a member of the advisory council for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute, a nonprofit entity that received $150,000 at the end of last year from ByteDance, according to a lobbying contribution report. “What a coincidence,” Denton said on social media.

IRS sent agent to Twitter Files journalist’s home on day of House weaponization committee testimony
House Judiciary Committee chairman Jim Jordan is probing an unannounced, in-person visit by the IRS to the home of Matt Taibbi on the same day the “Twitter Files” journalist warned of a sprawling “censorship industrial complex” in testimony before the subcommittee on the weaponization of the federal government.

In a letter to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and IRS Commissioner Daniel Werfel on Monday, Mr. Jordan said that while Mr. Taibbi was testifying before the committee on March 9, an IRS revenue officer appeared at Mr. Taibbi’s New Jersey residence and left a note telling him to call the agency in four days.

Not the first time.  More at the site.  I have nothing against the town of Adak on the Aleutian panhandle but it does seem to be an appropriately remote place to relocate the FBI central offices. They are looking at building a new office building with more square feet than the Pentagon (most sq. ft. of any office building). I would suggest that a smaller facility in Adak would suit them better until they come to their senses.

Do not forget that Mr. Taibbi is a very liberal journalist and even he is upset by all that is being disclosed.

Breaking a bit early - working at the farm getting ready for my departure to North Carolina.

Looking forward to the move - WA State just instituted a 7% capital gains tax on selling securities.  Not real estate but that will not be long in coming.  There is no state income tax but our sales tax is about 9%.  The government is nickel and diming its citizens to death. Meanwhile, they are building small houses for the professional homeless for $800K each.  We need to reopen the asylums.  Worked then, it will work now.  Mutter mutter mutter grumble...

Was wondering why President Trump was being so hard on him recently.
This might have a lot to do with it - from Conservative Treehouse:

Political Consultant Mark Simone Admits Team Bush and Karl Rove are Group Behind Ron DeSantis Effort….
Put a fork in the opposition denials to what was increasingly obvious; it’s over.

Last summer we saw the fingerprints of the professional republican apparatus all over the construct that was creating the Ron DeSantis 2024 effort. The data was all going in one direction, all of the constructs were identical to the Karl Rove playbook with the single addition of the Republican Governor’s Association as a participant. As the months moved forward the Rovian elements became more and more clear. The DeSantis supporters tried to deny it, but the truth of the issue is just too obvious.

Now, insider republican political consultant Mark Simone admits that Team Bush and Karl Rove are the specific organizers of the DeSantis 2024 effort. Appearing on Fox Business, Larry Kudlow asks directly, “who is behind the DeSantis campaign?” Simone admits, “yeah, it’s Karl Rove – Karl Rove has been advising DeSantis, that’s why he’s been getting a little bit better every week.”

200+ comments at the site - we do not need a RINO in office. I would give DeSantis another couple of terms in office as Governor and then see how he does.  President Trump needs to come back and clean up the swamp. Finish what he started with better people this time.

Karl Rove just needs to go away.  He does not "get" what this Nation needs.  Only in it for himself. Not that smart.

How conveeeenient... Railroad CYA

Looks like Norfolk Southern Railroad is engaging in a little Cover-Your-Ass action here. 
From the Columbus, OH ABC affiliate:

Norfolk Southern wiped out most of video leading up to East Palestine derailment
Norfolk Southern wiped out most of a video in the train cab that could have provided crucial information about the East Palestine derailment, the head of the agency investigating the crash says.

While the camera in the locomotive has 12 hours of recording time, “all of that – except 15 minutes before the derailment and 5 minutes after – was overwritten after the accident because they put the locomotive immediately back in service,” Jennifer L. Homendy, chair of the National Transportation Safety Board, told ABC 6 On Your Side.

That means everything except for those 20 minutes around the derailment was recorded over. And thus, investigators cannot check video from the inward-facing camera to see what the three-person train crew was doing earlier in the trip.

If the camera is anything like any other camera out there, it stores the video on an SD-RAM card or some other form of portable media. Standard proceedure for any accident would be to preserve evidence - in this case, pop out the memory, spend $20 at WalMart for a new card and preserve the old one.

Ms. Homendy is perfect for leading the investigation - excerpts from her bio:

    • she served as the Democratic Staff Director of the Subco...
    • held positions with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters
    • also Transportation Trades Department of the AFL-CIO
    • involved with the Norman Y. Mineta Research and Special Programs...

Could not be happening to a nicer bunch of propagandists.

Used to listen to them a lot 20 years ago but their hectoring and bias is unlistenable today.
They are playing to a very small minority - biting the hand that used to feed them.

From The Washington Post:

NPR cancels 4 podcasts in biggest wave of layoffs in decades
NPR said it would stop production on a series of podcasts, including “Invisibilia,” an early hit, as part of a broad cutback it signaled was coming last month.

Faced with a projected $30 million decline in revenue, the Washington-based audio and digital-news organization began laying off about 100 employees, or 10 percent of its staff, this week — among the largest reductions in its 53-year history. Managers have set aside three days this week to notify those affected across a number of departments; Thursday was the newsroom’s turn to get the bad news.

The programming cutbacks disclosed Thursday appear to reflect NPR’s decision to protect its core news programs that remain highly popular on its national network of public-radio affiliates, including its two daily newsmagazines, “Morning Edition” and “All Things Considered.”

Good - maybe their management will wake up to the fact that they are pandering to 5% of the US population.
Time to reassess their mission...

Do not forget this from October, 2019

Turning into a Democrat shithole - this is by design, not by accident. From the Arizona Daily Independent:

Woman Killed, Man Beaten As “The Zone” In Phoenix Grows More Violent
Phoenix homicide detectives are seeking information about another deadly incident that occurred this week in Phoenix’s homeless encampment called “The Zone.”

On March 21, a man was burned alive after at least two suspects placed his body in a dumpster and lit him on fire. According to sources, his moans could be heard by homeless individuals who occupy “The Zone,” but fear of reprisal stopped any attempts to intervene.

On Wednesday, March 22, Phoenix officers responded to a shooting call at about 8:11 p.m. When officers got to the scene, they contacted the 911 caller who had obvious injuries to his head. The man told officers he was hit in the head with a gun by an unknown male. The victim also reported that his female friend was shot by the same person that attacked him. Officers checking the area of 800 West Madison Street located the female victim suffering from gunshot wounds.

Officers provided medical aid until Phoenix Fire arrived to take her to a local hospital where she died from her injuries.

The suspect remains outstanding.

The Democrats want the general public to feel hopeless.
This way, there is minimal resistance when the tyrants step in with their "solution"

Nothing but the Cloward-Piven Strategy on a state-wide level
The progressives keep using it because it still works - not enough people stand up to their bullshit.

Judge Throws Book at Chicago Carjacker Who Boasted He’d Be ‘Out by Sunday’
A Chicago carjacker boasted that he’d be released from jail in just a few days after being arrested for a violent robbery following a police chase.

However, Jordan Henry, a career thug with a lengthy rap sheet, made a huge mistake when he was chased by police.

During the pursuit, Henry left the soft-on-crime city and drove into Will County.

Will County State’s Attorney Jim Glasgow said Henry was an arrogant criminal who bragged when arrested, “I will be out by Sunday.”

Glasgow said: “I think it’s important this case be highlighted since it did occur in the City of Chicago, if he were arrested there, looking at his past history, he probably would have been back out on the street in a short period of time, just like he bragged.

“But not this time. Justice was done,” Glasgow asserted,

Waiting for the applause to die down...

Curious news from Yahoo/Australia:

Warning after Qantas flights reportedly interfered with by Chinese warships
An Australian defence expert is warning the federal government to watch out for repeated communication interference after Chinese warships were suspected of messing with GPS systems on board Qantas flights.

In a note issued to pilots, Qantas confirmed some flights had experienced interference on VHF channels “purporting to represent the Chinese military,” the Guardian reported. The national carrier claimed ships off the northwest shelf of Australia are to blame for GPS jamming.

Professor Sam Drake from the Centre for Defence Engineering Research and Training at Flinders University says “unfortunately it is very easy to do”, but warned the Australian government might want to step in if the issue continues.

Jamming a GPS signal is a trivial matter.  Makes me wonder if they are planning to move on Taiwan.
Makes sense with our military in such a flaccid state and zero leadership.

Cool clear water- infrastructure

Here's what happens when you fail to maintain your infrastructure.
The money is soo tempting to earmark for social gimme's but...
From Yahoo News/NY Times:

A Water System So Broken That One Pipe Leaks 5 Million Gallons a Day
JACKSON, Miss. — On an abandoned golf course, overgrown with shrubs and saw grass, you can hear the rushing water from 100 yards away.

Near Hole 4, past the little bridge and crumbling cart paths, what looks to be a waterfall comes into view, pouring down through the brush and into the creek below. Except the torrent of water gushing up through the mud isn’t from a spring-fed stream or a bubbling brook.

It is spewing from a broken city water line.

Yes, it's THAT Jackson, Miss. From CNN August of 2022:

The water crisis in Jackson, Mississippi, has gotten so bad, the city temporarily ran out of bottled water to give to residents

Life in Democrat-run urban America. Their water crisis has faded from the media as the Democrats do not want their failures brought to light. The poor residents are paying their property taxes and utility bills and are not receiving drinkable water.  Instead, the city "leadership" is virtue signaling with all sorts of festivals and parks.

Bread and circuses. From the entry:

"Bread and circuses" (or bread and games; from Latin: panem et circenses) is metonymic for a superficial means of appeasement. In the case of politics, the phrase is used to describe the generation of public approval, not through exemplary or excellent public service or public policy, but through diversion; distraction; or the mere satisfaction of the immediate, shallow requirements of a populace, as an offered "palliative." Its originator, Juvenal, used the phrase to decry the selfishness of common people and their neglect of wider concerns. The phrase also implies the erosion or ignorance of civic duty amongst the concerns of the commoner.

Got to love the phrase: "diversion; distraction; or the mere satisfaction of the immediate, shallow requirements"
Perfect description of how to make a liberal voter happy.
Worked since the time of Christ.

Are we expecting too much of the modern citizen?
Maybe it is time to bring back the poll tax and a very stringent registration process.

Smoking gun anyone?

Looks like the Manhattan DA has egg on face.  From the London Daily Mail:

EXCLUSIVE: Is this the smoking gun? Letter from Michael Cohen claiming Donald Trump did NOT reimburse him for hush money paid to Stormy Daniels appears to fly in the face of the star witness's grand jury testimony

    • Bombshell document, exclusively obtained by, could cripple prosecutors' pursuit of criminal charges against Trump
    • Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer, is the star witness in the case over which Trump reportedly faces imminent arrest for campaign finance violations
    • But in a February 2018 letter Cohen’s attorney wrote that ‘Mr. Cohen used his own personal funds’ and that ‘neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign reimbursed Mr. Cohen'

Michael Cohen claimed he was not reimbursed by Donald Trump or his organization for hush money payments to porn actress Stormy Daniels in a 2018 letter to federal authorities, contradicting his recent grand jury testimony,

The bombshell document, exclusively obtained by, could throw a wrench in the works of prosecutors pursuing criminal charges against Trump over the payments.

Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer and the star witness in the case over which Trump reportedly faces imminent arrest, claims that Trump got him to pay $130,000 to Daniels to keep her quiet about her alleged affair with the real estate mogul, just days before the 2016 presidential election.

Much more at the site.
So Cohen lied before the Grand Jury.  Oopsie...

They want him soooo bad but they have nothing.

From Business Insider:

Trump indictment grand jury not 'likely' to meet Thursday either after Manhattan DA paused Stormy Daniels case Wednesday

    • A Manhattan grand jury meets Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays in the Trump 'hush-money' case.
    • Wednesday's grand jury session was canceled, Insider first reported.
    • The panel is not 'likely' to reconvene on Thursday, sources said.

The Manhattan 'hush-money' grand jury, after being told by prosecutors not to come in on Wednesday, is not 'likely' to meet Thursday either, law enforcement sources told Insider.

Wednesday's cancellation came on the brink of a possible historic indictment of former President Donald Trump.

Add to the nightly list - from Pearls Before Swine:


Just wonderful - from Ars Technica:

Google tells users of some Android phones: Nuke voice calling to avoid infection
Google is urging owners of certain Android phones to take urgent action to protect themselves from critical vulnerabilities that give skilled hackers the ability to surreptitiously compromise their devices by making a specially crafted call to their number.  It’s not clear if all actions urged are even possible, however, and even if they are, the measures will neuter devices of most voice-calling capabilities.

A bit more:

“Tests conducted by Project Zero confirm that those four vulnerabilities allow an attacker to remotely compromise a phone at the baseband level with no user interaction, and require only that the attacker know the victim's phone number,” Project Zero’s Tim Willis wrote. “With limited additional research and development, we believe that skilled attackers would be able to quickly create an operational exploit to compromise affected devices silently and remotely.”

You read that right - the attacker just needs to know the telephone number.  I am sure that a patch will be forthcoming soon but sheesh...
