Not to bright - car thief

| No Comments

Talk about not being that bright - from Florida's First Coast News:

Lake City man steals car, tries to trade it back to same dealership days later
A Lake City man tried to trade in a vehicle this week, but instead of a new car, he ended up with multiple charges.

On Monday, the Lake City Police Department was dispatched to 4325 W US Hwy 90, Lake City Chrysler Dodge Jeep, to a report of a stolen vehicle.

Upon arrival, officers spoke to employees who advised that an individual came to the dealership and was attempting to trade his current vehicle for a new one.

However, employees say upon checking the vehicle’s VIN number, they discovered the vehicle was stolen from the dealership’s lot just a few days prior.

How did he think he was going to deliver the title. Unreal.

Project Veritas - Part 2

| No Comments

The hits keep on coming.  Part 1 of their COVID whistleblower series was Monday the 20th.
A whistleblower came forward with some inconvenient truths.

Today: Project Veritas - Part 2

FDA Official: ‘Blow Dart’ African Americans with COVID Vaccine is ‘Where We’re Going...Just Shoot Everyone’ … Calls for a ‘Nazi Germany’ Style ‘Registry’ of Unvaccinated Americans: ‘Think About It Like The Jewish Star’

    • Taylor Lee, FDA Economist: “Go to the unvaccinated and blow it [COVID vaccine] into them. Blow dart it into them.”
    • Lee: “Census goes door-to-door if you don’t respond. So, we have the infrastructure to do it [forced COVID vaccinations]. I mean, it’ll cost a ton of money. But I think, at that point, I think there needs to be a registry of people who aren’t vaccinated. Although that’s sounding very [much like Nazi] Germany.”
    • Lee: “Nazi Germany…I mean, think about it like the Jewish Star [for unvaccinated Americans].”
    • Lee: “I’m gonna go door-to-door and stab everyone [with the COVID vaccine], ‘Oh, it’s just your booster shot! There you go!’”
    • Lee: “So, if you put every anti-vaxxer, like sheep, into like Texas and you closed off Texas from the rest of the world, and you go, ‘Okay, you be you in Texas until we deal with this [pandemic].’”
    • Lee: “All of the wealthy white people are getting vaccinated because they're educated.”
    • Lee: “There are political appointees [at the FDA] that are generally scientific advisors or are appointed by the president or the commission…They're being paid based on if the other people are staying in power.”
    • Lee: “Unfortunately, everyone ends up playing politics, but I don't think that the career scientists are -- I think that it's the people that they're unfortunately having to report to because these political appointees are being put in place and that’s part of like -- the Senate confirms the people to then just pick their people.”

Project Veritas released the second video of its COVID vaccine investigative series today exposing U.S. Food and Drug Administration [FDA] economist, Taylor Lee, who was recorded calling for forced COVID vaccinations and a registry for all unvaccinated Americans.

Lee said that U.S. Government policy could emulate Nazi Germany when it comes to the COVID vaccine.

“Census goes door-to-door if you don’t respond. So, we have the infrastructure to do it [forced COVID vaccinations]. I mean, it’ll cost a ton of money. But I think, at that point, I think there needs to be a registry of people who aren’t vaccinated. Although that’s sounding very [much like Nazi] Germany,” Lee said.

“Nazi Germany…I mean, think about it like the Jewish Star [for unvaccinated Americans],” he said.

“So, if you put every anti-vaxxer, like sheep, into like Texas and you closed off Texas from the rest of the world, and you go, ‘Okay, you be you in Texas until we deal with this [pandemic].’”

Lee said that due to a large portion of the African American community being hesitant to take the COVID vaccine, the solution would be to “blow dart” on them.

And again, much more at the site.  Part 3 coming soon?  Part 4? Can't wait.

Back to the island

Sucessful day.  Boaty McBoatface set sail this afternoon.  I got it for a buck from a guy who never had the time to rebuild it.  Sat on it for three years and now a new guy will make time to work on it. Engine needs work but the hull is solid and nobody stripped it - it has the original Dickenson Force-10 Heater, the Ships Bell, galley stuff (stove and fridge), electronics, etc...

20210922-boaty-mcboatface.jpg

The Maple Tree in the background will be getting a trim around the edges this coming weekend and a whole bunch of dead lawnmowers, a pressure washer, roto-tiller, etc.  got hauled away by a guy who fixes small engines. Place is coming together again.

Stopped off for a burrito bowl at Taco Del Mar and home and unpack.  Surf for a bit.  Busy day tomorrow and then the weekend at the thrift store.  The fun never stops.

And nuttin' to report

Heading out for coffee - meeting up with a friend there.

Off to the farm - got appointments set up with three people.  Getting rid of some junk and having a tree looked at: very old Maple in danger of falling down. Get some nice wood out of it...

More later - probably returning to the island tonight.

You will never get a handle on Carbon Dioxide (otherwise known as Plant Food).
From SciTech Daily:

Deadwood Releasing 10.9 Gigatons of Carbon Every Year – More Than All Fossil Fuel Emissions Combined
Decaying wood releases around 10.9 gigatons of carbon worldwide every year, according to a new study by an international team of scientists.

This is roughly equivalent to 115 percent of fossil fuel emissions.

Co-author of the study Professor David Lindenmayer from The Australian National University (ANU) says it’s the first time researchers have been able to quantify the contribution of deadwood to the global carbon cycle.

“Until now, little has been known about the role of dead trees,” Professor Lindenmayer said.

“We know living trees play a vital role in absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. But up until now, we didn’t know what happens when those trees decompose. It turns out, it has a massive impact.”

Yeah - photosynthesis takes in Sunlight, Water and CO2 and uses these to create the complex carbohydrates that the plants need to thrive.  When the plant dies, the left-over materials are recycled back to nature.  The CO2 is freed up for the next plant that needs it.  Earth once had CO2 over 9,000ppm - we are currently at 450ppm or thereabouts.

And gone to ground - farm

At the store office - got someone house-sitting the farm so spend nights here. It was originally one of the apartments for the building so one bedroom is for storage and the other bedroom is for me. Uneventful drive up except for a lot of traffic - the road I usually take  was closed and the detour was snotted up with traffic.

Busy but productive day tomorrow. Surf for a bit - see what's happened in my absence.

Someone out there on the internet needs my advice.  I just KNOW it...

Lunch and then on the road

Had to do some paperwork and load up.  Actually taking the Highlander today - not bringing a load back.  Re-prioritizing my triage operations.  I have a building on the property — the DaveCave(tm) — that can be used for sorting so will start using that.

Quick sandwich and then heading North.

Looks like a whistleblower came forward with some inconvenient truths.
From Project Veritas:

Federal Govt Whistleblower Goes Public with Secret Recordings: ‘Government Doesn’t Want to Show the [COVID] Vaccine is Full of Sh*t’; ‘Shove’ Adverse Effect Reporting ‘Under the Mat’

    • Dr. Maria Gonzales, ER Doctor, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: “All this is bullshit. Now, [a patient] probably [has] myocarditis due to the [COVID] vaccine. But now, they [government] are not going to blame the vaccine.”
    • Dr. Gonzales: “They [government] are not reporting [adverse COVID vaccine side effects]…They want to shove it under the mat.”
    • Deanna Paris, Registered Nurse, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: “It’s a shame they [government] are not treating people [with COVID] like they're supposed to, like they should. I think they want people to die.”
    • Jodi O’Malley, Insider and Registered Nurse, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: The COVID vaccine is “not doing what it’s purpose was.”
    • O’Malley: “I’ve seen dozens of people come in with adverse reactions.”
    • O’Malley: “If we [government] are not gathering [COVID vaccine] data and reporting it, then how are we going to say that this is safe and approved for use?”
    • O’Malley: I’m not afraid of blowing the whistle “because my faith lies in God and not man…You know, like what kind of person would I be if I knew all of this -- this is evil at the highest level. You have the FDA, you have the CDC, that are both supposed to be protecting us, but they are under the government, and everything that we’ve done so far is unscientific.”
    • O’Malley: “At the end of the day, it’s about your health, and you can never get that back -- and about your freedom, and about living in a peaceful society, and I’m like, ‘no.’ No. This is the hill that I will die on.”

Project Veritas released the first video of its COVID vaccine investigative series today featuring an interview with U.S. Health and Human Services [HHS] insider, Jodi O’Malley, who works as a Registered Nurse at the local Indian Medical Center.

O’Malley told Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe about what has been going on at her federal government facility. She recorded her HHS colleagues discussing their concerns about the new COVID vaccine to corroborate her assertions:

Much more at the site.  And, given Project Veritas' track record, if they are releasing this, they have a bunch more waiting in the wings. We need to turn over all of the rocks and expose what our government is doing. Get the truth out.

Balkanization - an object example

| No Comments

The Obama and the Biden administrations have been Balkanizing us.  Dividing us into camps - us and them.
They then invent reasons why we should be at each others throats (thaaaass raaacisssss).
This works in their favor as we waste our time there instead of unifying and forcing the Federal Government to reform itself and our elected representatives to stop feeding at the trough and to start doing their jobs and representing us.

An object example of this from Dale Coverly:

20210920-torch.jpg

He passed in 2018 - one of the best of the best.  His collection is up for sale this October 27th at Sotheby's:

The Ricky Jay Collection
Magician, actor, scholar, author: the range of Ricky Jay’s accomplishments were as varied as are the formats and subjects of the material in his celebrated Collection: books, pamphlets, posters, handbills, broadsides, prints, ephemera, objects, and apparatus documenting the histories of magic, circuses, jugglers and acrobats, automatons, remarkable characters, learned animals, limb-deficient artists, con men, and scores of other related, if arcane, topics. Featuring characters of the greatest celebrity to the utmost obscurity, The Ricky Jay Collection will offer an astonishing variety of material in a sale that is truly without precedent.

Ricky Jay is one of the very select company of persons who assembled a collection of the very first rank in a field in which he was not only a world-renowned practitioner, but also a scholar of considerable note. Jay documented his collection in a series of books that both highly entertaining and thoroughly erudite, including Learned Pigs & Fireproof Women, Jay’s Journal of Anomalies, Extraordinary Exhibitions, and Matthias Buchinger: “The Greatest German Living.” Jay’s source material for these and other publications will now be available for the elucidation and entertainment of other collectors—as well as the legions of Ricky’s admirers—at Sotheby’s auction of The Ricky Jay Collection, October 27 and 28, 2021. We invite you check this page often for updates.

I would want to go there just to watch people. Here is just one small taste of Ricky's work - more can be found on YouTube

Enough social media.  Screw public opinion. Ignore the media. Cultivate that which is within. Polish your heart. Do not feed the state - let it wither and die. Celebrate your neighbors, your community. Live life. Breathe.

Today's "media" on yesterday's "riot"

From Newsweek - talk about a howler:

Trump's 'Waning Influence' Shown in 'Very Small Crowd Size' at 'Justice for J6' Rally: Ted Lieu
As a sparse crowd gathered in Washington D.C., to support the January 6 Capitol rioters on Saturday, Representative Ted Lieu said the "Justice for J6" rally's poor attendance shows that former President Donald Trump's influence on the Republican Party is finally waning.

"The very small crowd size at the #JusticeforJ6 traitorous rally shows the waning influence of the former President," the California Democrat tweeted.

The "Justice for J6" rally concluded Saturday afternoon without any known major instances of violence. Due to concerns of such possible threats, authorities ensured a hefty police presence at the rally, which was attended by 400 to 450 protesters in support of those who were charged in connection with the Capitol riot earlier this year, according to Capitol Police.

Ted Lieu represents California's 33rd District (the wealthy part of Los Angeles). No mention of nation of origin but his official biography states:

Looking for a better life and opportunity, Ted and his family immigrated to the United States when he was three years old. 

Infogalactic has him born in Taiwan.

Continuing from the Newsweek article:

One man allegedly wielding a handgun was detained at the rally around 1:30 p.m. and charged with unlawful activities, reported Capitol Police.

"At this time, it is not clear why the man was at the demonstration," authorities said.

Actually, it was very clear - the man was an undercover agent.  He was stopped, he presented his badge and was released.  He was not charged with anything.

800+ comments - some fun reading. 

The author was Senior News Editor Christina Zhao.  The link goes to her other stories - she writes with a certain bias to say the least. She is educated in England (read the Law) and practiced law in New Zealand.  No word as to country of origin.  Odd that two Chinese names be involved in an article so slanted against conservatism and American Greatness. Christina should have picked up a phone and done a little research first - find out what actually happened.

Looking back, I think that this bias is wonderful.  Keeps them in the dark until the shit does hit the fan.
They will be caught unawares and helpless. Easy pickins...

Every indication was that this was a false-flag operation designed to advance the narrative that Constitutional Conservatives (as well as President Trump's followers) were a bunch of crazed right-wing lunatics. Finally found the "official" name for the event and that makes this perfectly clear.

From Zero Hedge:

J6 'Chaos' Total Bust For Media As Cops, Journalists And FBI Appear To Outnumber Protesters
Saturday's "Justice for J6" rally appears to have been - in the words of Donald Trump, "a setup" - after police, journalists and FBI agents appear to have been the main attraction, while just a few hundred protests appeared to support those who were detained following the Jan. 6 Capitol breach.

Excuuuuuuuuse me — "Justice for J6" rally

No conservative would EVER use the word Justice in that context.  That use of the word Justice is owned purely by the liberals.  They are using it to bully moderates when they do not roll over and yield to the liberals' Marxist/Statist demands. You are against Justice?

The Elite's shit does not stink.  From Breitbart:

No Vaccine Rules for Big U.N. Meeting: Free Pass for World Leaders
The U.N. General Assembly will ignore vaccine requirements for attendees at next week’s big meeting in New York, snubbing NYC rules for convention centers and public gatherings.

Presidents, premiers, monarchs, dignitaries, diplomats and their traveling staff members have been told by organizers they won’t have to show coronavirus vaccination passports or other proof of inoculation on arrival at U.N. headquarters on Turtle Bay, Manhattan.

Instead attendees plus their staff will be waved through and allowed admission free of any checks with more than 100 heads of state and government and over 20 foreign ministers signed up to speak in person.

An honor system — and only an honor system – means dignitaries won’t have to show vaccination cards or other proof of inoculation as they’ll simply attest to it by swiping their ID badges at the assembly hall.

I keep thinking that this is a target-rich opportunity. There are probably only about 500 people who are actively steering us towards world communism.  Remove them and a lot of our problems go away.  The UN could be rebuilt somewhere in Botswana and the Manhattan site could be turned into a Trump Hotel.

It's morning. Time for my routine.

Update on down under

From Australian tech website Ambient Irony:

Speaking of company towns, bit of a kerfuffle in Melbourne today. The old-school working class socialists have had quite enough of the new-wave managerial class socialists and decided to break things.

Safe prediction: The Victorian government, which collectively has the decision-making capacity of a week-dead wombat, will promptly step in to make everything much worse.

Update: That was indeed prompt. Victoria has just announced lockdowns won't be lifted until 90% of the population is fully vaccinated.

Riots it is then.

The "riots" are happening in several places - they are just getting started reclaiming their freedom.
From Sundance at Conservative Treehouse:

Australian Freedom Fighters Battle Totalitarian Tyranny and Government COVID Lockdowns, Protestors Overwhelm Police Efforts to Beat Them
Things are getting spicy in Australia, specifically the town of Richmond in the Melbourne area.  Righteous anti-lockdown protestors took to the streets against thousands of armed police and heavily geared riot squads prepared to beat them into submission and stop their march {Direct Rumble Link}.

As the government stormtroopers corralled the peacefully marching protesters into an ever smaller dead end where there were blocked in all directions, a valiant member of the resistance opened a gateway through a housing division enabling the crowd to continue amassing, assembling more supporters and continue marching.

The police then formed a battle formation in the street attempting to cordon-off the remaining roadway and block the march from continuing.  However, after a few tense minutes of standoff the protesters rushed the police and fought their way through.  Google is attempting to block this video.  WATCH:

Regarding Google's censorship, I love the line from Tyrion Lannister:

They did catch one guy with a gun there.  This excerpt from The Gateway Pundit:

Police surrounded a masked man who was armed with a firearm.

The masked man told officers where his gun was and pulled out a badge.

“Without disarming or handcuffing him, police extract him from the event.” Ford Fischer said.

“Are you under cover?” the officers asked as the man pulled out a badge.

Video and several other descriptions of the event at the link.

I love how everyone knew this was going to be a false-flag event and just stayed home.
Beclowned all the undercover agents and FBI shills.
That's what you get for trying to push a false narrative against smart people...

Nothing happening out there. I love that there were more media and police than protestors at today's "big" rally. Figured it was a false-flag operation and now all their planning and our money went for naught.  See if they try it again.

Checked the rain guage - got 1.7" of the wet stuff in the last 24 hours.  That is the most that I have seen here in the three years I have been living at this place.  A lot of rain. Even more in the mountains - no word on the snowpack yet but we should have made a good start.

Australia is starting to push-back.  From Reuters:

Australian police clash with anti-lockdown protesters, arrest nearly 270
Australia's police arrested 235 people in Melbourne and 32 in Sydney on Saturday at unsanctioned anti-lockdown rallies and several police officers were injured in clashes with protesters.

Victoria police said six officers required hospitalisation. Several officers were knocked to the ground and trampled, the police said and television footage showed.

About 700 people managed to gather in parts of Melbourne, as 2,000 officers made the city centre virtually a no-go zone, setting up checkpoints and barricades. Public transport and ride shares into the city were suspended.

In Sydney, riot squad officers, highway patrol, detectives and general duties police were also deployed to the streets, preventing large gatherings.

Here is a video of the action:

Nice to see people waking up all over the world.

Was wondering what would happen at today's false-flag operation. 
The FBI spending our tax dollars trying to re-write the American Narrative.
From the London Daily Mail:

Protesters outnumbered by police: 'Justice for J6' rally ends as just a handful of demonstrators turn up after cops launched massive operation to ensure there was no repeat of January 6

  • A sparsely attended 'Justice for J6' rally on Saturday featured more police officers and press than protesters
  • U.S. Capitol Police said there were 'approximately 400 to 450 people were inside the protest area today (excluding law enforcement)
  • About 700 were expected to attend rally to protest the federal charges being faced by the January 6th rioters
  • Police broke up protesters and counterprotesters at the rally, around the Capitol building, moving people apart before fights could break out
  • One person with a knife was arrested as were three others throughout the day
  • Hundreds of U.S. Capitol Police and federal law enforcement lined up around the Capitol building Saturday morning

A sparsely attended 'Justice for J6' rally on Saturday featured more police officers and press than protesters as a few hundred demonstrators gathered in the shadow of the Capitol building to show support for the January 6th rioters who stormed it.

A heavy police presence - officers in riot gear, plain clothes police, law enforcement on bikes and horses - awaited the crowd. Also there were counterprotesters, who carried homemade signs - one read loser which was a reference to Donald Trump, its carrier said - and 'Black Lives Matter' flags. One small group stood on a street corner, blaring the song 'FTD (F*** Donald Trump).'

Police broke up shouting matches between the two groups, moving people apart before fights could break out. There were no reports of violence amid fears the day could turn into another insurrection. One man with a knife was arrested on a weapons violation charge.

A total of four people were arrested on Saturday.

Good - they were looking for provocation.  Something to blat out on the media - those nasty right-wing fascists.

Giving them nothing was the perfect thing to do. Steal their thunder and make them look stupid.

The storm blew over last night - cool and heavy overcast this morning but no wind or rain.  Puget Sound Electric has 56,433 customers without power - a lot around Bellingham and Tacoma area. Island and Snohomish are down to 531 - South Camano Island is toast again.

The total for WA State is 59,195, Oregon is 16,080 and California is 14,179.  BC Hydro is around 4,300 customers.

First big storm of the season.

Heading to bed now - long day today and same for tomorrow.  Two nights of not sleeping very well so dragging my sorry ass right now. Get through tomorrow and sleep in on Sunday.

The wind has let up substantially - still lots of power outages but much lower than two hours ago. The power crews up here are really good.  Farm looks good - some outages in the next town down the road but Maple Falls is pretty unscathed.

False flag action - tomorrow

| No Comments

September 18th is supposed to be a day of "peaceful protest" for those still incarcerated because of the January 6th insurrection and coup attempt at the Capitol Building.  President Trump had these words at The Federalist:

In Exclusive Interview, Trump Calls Sept. 18 Rally A ‘Setup,’ Says GOP Senate Should Fire ‘Disaster’ McConnell
In an exclusive interview with The Federalist on Thursday, former President Donald Trump called for Senate Republicans to fire Mitch McConnell and elect a new leader, unloaded on “radicalized” left-wing Democrats, blasted former President George W. Bush as “one of the worst presidents ever,” and criticized current President Joe Biden’s “grossly incompetent” handling of America’s withdrawal from Afghanistan. Trump also called the planned Sept. 18 rally at the U.S. Capitol a “setup” and said media would use it as an excuse to bash Republicans regardless of its outcome.

Tomorrow's rally:

Trump also characterized the planned Sept. 18 rally at the U.S. Capitol as a “setup” meant to denigrate Republican voters regardless of what transpires.

“On Saturday, that’s a setup,” Trump said, referring to the rally. “If people don’t show up they’ll say, ‘Oh, it’s a lack of spirit.’ And if people do show up they’ll be harassed.”

I would go even further and suggest that it has all the hallmarks of a false-flag operation.  There will be the Democrat brownshirts (paid by the FBI - your tax dollars at work) dressed up in MAGA gear and breaking the law. Causing damage and hurting people.  They will be "arrested" and there will be a show trial.   Can't trust those right-wingers - look at the violence they were doing. Must clamp down on them even further. Tactics out of the 1930's coming to life again before our eyes.

Strange times...

Gonna be a long evening.
Puget Sound Energy (Whatcom county and Whidbey island) is showing 37,825 customers without power.

Snohomish PUD (including Camano Island) is showing 3,331 customers without power.

Both South Whidbey and South Camano are totally without.  My power is bumping a lot - momentary interruptions less than a second. Enough to cycle the UPS but not enough to require resetting the microwave or oven clock.

...if people were not getting murdered at an increasing rate.

Chicago is having a record year for gun violence:

Year to Date
Shot & Killed: 567
Shot & Wounded: 2764
Total Shot: 3331
Total Homicides: 600

And Mayor Betelguese has a plan - from the Chicago, Ill FOX affiliate:

Mayor Lori Lightfoot wants to sue Chicago gangs, seize their assets
As Chicago's gang violence spirals out of control, Mayor Lori Lightfoot is coming up with a new plan to fight back.

Lightfoot wants to hold the gangs accountable by allowing the city to sue the very people who are pulling the trigger.

Authorities want to take away the guns, cars, jewelry and money from gangs to eliminate their profit motive.

'Scuuuuuse me but the Asset Forfeiture Program has been a tool of the United States Department of Justice since 1984. I do not think that they will take kindly to Mayor Groot stepping in and trying to claim the booty for herself. More here: Asset forfeiture

Another example of someone who is perfectly credentialed for the position: Lightfoot is black, gay, knows the right people, went to the right schools.  Lightfoot is totally unqualified for the position and there is a huge difference between the two.

Signed today 234 years ago.  A good run and let's hope that we get back on track for another couple hundred years at least.  Been sidetricked recently with corruption and Marxism.  Need to get the adults back in the room again.

Two headlines with links to get you started:
