A Malthusian timeline

| No Comments

Malthusians are never right - their predictions always turn out wrong.
A little list:

    • 1960’s no more oil in 10 years
    • 1970’s another ice age in 10 years
    • 1980’s acid rain will destroy all crops in 10 years
    • 1990’s The ozone layer will be destroyed in 10 years
    • 2000’s Ice floes will be gone in 10 years.
    • 2000 Y2k (millennium) will destroy everything!
    • 2001 Anthrax will kill us all!
    • 2002 West Nile virus will kill us all!
    • 2003 SARS will kill us all!
    • 2005 Bird flu will kill us all!
    • 2006 E. Coli will kill us all!
    • 2008 The financial crash will kill us all!
    • 2009 Swine flu will kill us all!
    • 2012 Mayan calendar will end. We will all die!
    • 2013 North Korea will start the 3rd world war. We will all die!
    • 2014 Ebola will kill us all!
    • 2015 ISIS will kill us all!
    • 2016 Zika will kill us all!
    • 2018 Global warming will kill us all!
    • 2019 CO2 will kill us all!
    • 2020 Corona will kill us all!

Fear kills us more than these.  These are just bullshit.

I thought he was an OK guy - this kow-towing is simply beyond the pale - from Taiwan News:

John Cena apologizes to Chinese fans for calling Taiwan a country
American professional wrestler and actor John Cena apologized profusely in Mandarin on Tuesday (May 25) after Chinese netizens became enraged over his reference to Taiwan as a country.

A bit more:

A press conference prior to the premier slated for May 18 in Shanghai was canceled due to "threats," reported Apple Daily. Fearing an impact at the box office revenues in the lucrative China market, Cena posted a video on Weibo in which he lamented in Mandarin that he had done many interviews to promote the movie and during one of them had "made a mistake."

He then stressed that "I love and respect China and Chinese people." Cena went on to say that he was "very sorry for my mistake" and reiterated his love for China and its people.

More at the site - such a fscking sell-out...  Taiwan is an independent nation. A free nation. It is the real China.

I buy a lot of machine tools from that part of the world and the difference in manufacturing quality is stunning. The same thing made in China versus made is Taiwan are worlds apart. The communist model can not produce the same quality of product so they measure on quantity.  

The capitalist free-market model emphasizes all the Right Stuff: Quality, Production Values, Competitive Price as well as after-sale metrics like reparability, availability of parts, support.

Are you getting these screens all of a sudden?
Just the stupid children working for the deep state trying to be our nannies again.
These sites are clean - they are just trying to "nudge" our behavior again.

Self-centered elitists.  Entitled. Useful Idiots in the truest sense of the word.
Crawl back under your StarWars© blankie in your mommies basement and have a good cry you incel little wanker.

The joke is, once the people like AOC, Pelosi, Schumer, Harris finally manage to seize power, these people will be the first to be lined up and shot. They think they are a component of a coming revolution.  They are its cannon fodder - nothing more, nothing less.  Their graves will not be marked.  They will not be remembered.  They will have no legacy. They are a pawn.

Two stories that caught my eye:

Wonderful. If he was innocent, why did he bug out from NYC to Florida?

Black Lives Matter is a big grift by some die-hard marxists.  They are in it for them and for nobody else.
Witness their founders real-estate dealings. Now this - from Daily Caller:

BLM Co-Founder’s Jail Reform Group Dropped $26,000 At Luxury Malibu Beach Resort

    • A Los Angeles-based jail reform group led by BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors dropped nearly $26,000 for “meetings” at a luxury Malibu beach resort in 2019, campaign finance records show.
    • The payments were made on behalf of Reform LA Jails by a consulting firm owned by the co-author of Cullors’ 2018 biography, Asha Bandele, campaign finance records show.
    • Cullors, a self-proclaimed “trained Marxist,” raked in upwards of $20,000 a month serving as chairwoman of Reform LA Jails in 2019, the Daily Caller News Foundation previously reported.

A Los Angeles-based jail reform group led by BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors spent nearly $26,000 for “meetings” at a luxury Malibu beach resort in 2019, according to campaign finance records reviewed by the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Reform LA Jails dropped $10,179 for “meetings and appearances” at the Calamigos Guest Ranch and Beach Club in Malibu, California, and another $15,593 at the Malibu Conference Center, a corporate conference facility owned by the resort, according to the records, which covered the time period between July and September 2019. Guests at the 200-acre resort, where rooms start at $600 a night, have exclusive access to a private five-acre strip of the Malibu coast.

The records show that the payments were made on behalf of the jail reform group by a consulting firm owned by Asha Bandele, a longtime mentor of Cullors and co-author of her 2018 biography, “When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir.”

Must be nice to be rollin' so high.  Wonder how much money they are saving?  What will happen to them when their little scam crashes and burns like these always do? What is their exit strategy? Do they have one? Have they thought that far ahead?

The stupid.  It burns.

We are dealing with some real winners here - from ABC News:

Vandals target Barry Brodd's former home after testimony in Derek Chauvin's defense
The former Northern California home of an expert police use-of-force witness who testified last week for the defense in the Derek Chauvin murder trial was targeted over the weekend by vandals, police said.

And you read the past-tense correctly:

Police in Santa Rosa, California, said the vandalism occurred early Saturday morning at the former home of Barry Brodd, a former Santa Rosa Police Department training officer, who moved out of the residence several years ago and no longer lives in the state.

Nice job checking to see if your information was correct.  Several months ago might be just a slip-up but several years?  Tax records are online - how simple is it to check those. These liberals are simply not that bright.  That is why marxism sounds good to them - they do not comprehend its innate flaws. They lack the mental horsepower.

Sometimes, blogging takes curious turns. Some of these include litigation.

Their sense of entitlement is gross. From The London Daily Mail:

Is Meghan Markle already preparing a bid to be America's first woman President? Duchess of Sussex will 'use furore over Oprah interview to launch political career as she networks among Democrats', claims senior Labour figure with strong links to Washington
Meghan Markle will use the furore over her interview with Oprah to launch a political career which could take her all the way to the White House, if rumours circulating around Westminster last week turn out to be accurate.

One senior Labour figure – a veteran of Tony Blair's Downing Street administration with strong links to Washington – claimed to The Mail on Sunday that Ms Markle, 39, was networking among senior Democrats with a view to building a campaign and fundraising teams for a tilt at the US Presidency.

Talk about living in a bubble. She is an idiot.

Those RINO Senators who voted for impeachment?  From One America News Network:

Nearly All Republican Senators Who Voted To Convict President Trump Now Face Censures
Nearly all of the Republican senators who voted in favor of convicting President Trump during his impeachment trial are facing censures.

Reprimand came quickly for Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) who was censured by Louisiana’s Republican Party shortly after President Trump was acquitted. While speaking to reporters Saturday, he claimed the President’s legal team had a luck-luster defense strategy.

Typical - blame someone else for your screw-up.

Murkowski (RINO-Alaska) has not been censured yet but she is up for reelection in 2022. Primary her a**.

Barbera Boxer's time as Senator (D-CA of course) was 24 years from 1993 to 2017 (a perfect case for term limits). Since retiring, she is now working for a consulting business.  From Just the News:

Ex-Democratic Sen. Boxer registers to lobby for Chinese firm blacklisted for surveillance of Muslims
Former California Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer has registered as a foreign agent for an American subsidiary of a Chinese company blacklisted by the U.S. government for conducting surveillance of Muslim Uyghurs in China's Xinjiang province.

Boxer, who spent nearly 25 years in Congress before leaving the Senate in 2017, has joined Hikvision USA, The Daily Caller reported Tuesday.

The 80-year-old Boxer has registered to work through Mercury Public Affairs, a lobbying firm she joined early this year as a consultant.

Boxer's registration form, filed through the Justice Department under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, says she will be "providing strategic counsel" to Hikvision, which produces surveillance equipment for the Chinese government and Chinese military, the Daily Caller also reported.

In October 2019, the Commerce Department added 28 Chinese firms — including Hikvision — to a trade blacklist, saying they have abused Muslim minorities in China's northwestern Xinjiang region.

Question: Has she no decency? No shame?
Answer: Bro - you should have warned me.  I had wine snort out through my nostrils all over the keyboard.

Barry's Nobel Peace Prize

| No Comments

Some curious details coming out - from Norwegian media outlet DNMagasinet:
(Sweden selects all of the Nobel Prizes except for the Peace Prize. That one is selected by Norway)

BILL GATES AND JEFFREY EPSTEIN MET WITH NOBEL COMMITTEE CHAIR
December 2019: Berit Reiss-Andersen, chair of the Nobel Committee, had a question for the members of the committee. Queried by the Norwegian business daily DN, she asked whether they had ever had contact with Jeffrey Epstein, the convicted sex offender and well-connected financier.

Former chair Thorbjørn Jagland, by now a regular member of the committee, was among those answering no.

It turns out the answer was yes.

Not only did Jagland meet Epstein, he hosted him at his lavish residence in Strasbourg, France. At the time, Jagland was the sitting chair of the committee, which awards the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize. Also present: a philanthropist touted as a possible Prize recipient.

I have said before that BillG is not that smart.  He is incredibly competitive and his fortunes with Microsoft came about through a lie and being in the right place at the right time. If you are looking for a modern day Nikola Tesla (one of my personal heroes), Elon Musk is your huckleberry.

Much much more at the site - this is excellent investigative reporting.  Basically, President Obama's Peace Prize was bought and paid for. A fascinating read - it shows that our cultural "elite" are just as stupid as the 50% of our general population that is below average. These people have position but they do not have morals or wisdom. They think that they know what is best for us but they have never experienced life outside of their cushy bubble.

Robert Anson Heinlen said it best:

“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.
Specialization is for insects.”

I am missing:

    • plan an invasion,
    • butcher a hog (although I have butchered chickens),
    • write a sonnet,
    • set a bone and
    • die gallantly.

Doing sixteen out of twenty one is not bad. I wonder what BillG can do?

From ABC News:

Trump booed while visiting Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's casket at Supreme Court
President Donald Trump was loudly booed by members of the public on Thursday while visiting the casket of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who has been lying in repose outside the Supreme Court.

Trump, accompanied by first lady Melania Trump, stood behind the court's massive columns at the top of the court steps as people from the bottom of the steps loudly booed him and chanted, "Vote him out!"

Members of the public have been waiting for hours to file past the flag-draped casket, which will on Friday be moved to the Capitol building where Ginsburg will lie in state.

No sense of common decency. They are profoundly mentally ill and are nothing more than meat-puppets of their social media and the progressive narrative.

Trump Derangement Syndrome - Bob Woodward

| No Comments

Of course, from the New York Times:

Trump admitted to Bob Woodward that he intentionally played down the threat of the coronavirus
President Trump acknowledged to the journalist Bob Woodward that he had knowingly played down the coronavirus earlier this year even though he was aware it was “deadly” and vastly more serious than the seasonal flu.

“This is deadly stuff,” Mr. Trump told Mr. Woodward on Feb. 7 in one of a series of interviews he conducted with the president for his upcoming book, “Rage.” The Washington Post and CNN were given advance copies of the book and published details on Wednesday.

“You just breathe the air and that’s how it’s passed,” Trump said. “And so that’s a very tricky one. That’s a very delicate one. It’s also more deadly than even your strenuous flu.”

That was a vastly different story than Mr. Trump was telling the public.

Fake News on display. Trump Derangement Syndrome is a real thing.

Trump Derangement Syndrome is a term applied by some writers to critics of US President Donald Trump, accusing them of responding negatively to nearly anything Trump does. Justin Raimondo accused the president's persistent critics of using hyperbole and buzzwords such as "Hitler" and "normalize". Fareed Zakaria likened saying something slightly positive on Trump to "endorsing Trump as pope" to those he describes as having Trump Derangement Syndrome. The term has been used by some journalists to call for reflection, and used by other commentators to describe habitual criticism of Trump.

I still think that liberalism - as it is practiced today - is a mental illness.

California - wildfires

From the New York City ABC affiliate:

California wildfires: Pyrotechnic device at gender reveal party blamed for Southern California blaze
A smoke-generating pyrotechnic device used during a gender reveal party sparked a raging wildfire that's charred more than 7,000 acres in Southern California, officials said Sunday.

The El Dorado Fire burning in San Bernardino County was caused by "a smoke generating pyrotechnic device" used during the party in El Dorado Ranch Park, according to the Cal Fire San Bernardino Unit.

"Cal Fire reminds the public that with the dry conditions and critical fire weather, it doesn't take much to start a wildfire," the agency said in a press release. "Those responsible for starting fires due to negligence or illegal activity can be held financially and criminally responsible."

Not saying they should not have had a party but... Sheesh - setting off a firework during a time of fire danger is just stupid.

Some sick people out there - MAP

| No Comments

Justifying their mental illness as a simple sexual orientation. From The Post Millenial:

Pedophiles are proudly posting their faces online
In a world where everything is becoming politically correct, pedophiles on social media have seized a new opportunity to rebrand themselves as MAPS (“minor-attracted-people”). The MAP community and movement are growing in size and picking up steam particularly on social media apps like Twitter, where the problem is becoming increasingly worse. They’ve constructed their own flag and often describe their attraction to children as a sexual orientation, rather than the scientifically recognized mental illness that pedophilia is.

The goal is the MAP community is to normalize pedophilia and convince those who are “woke” enough to begin to accept them and view them as a marginalized class. Their intent is to follow the blue-print of LGBT acceptance, with some even insisting that pedophiles should be included within the acronym.

With the insidious growth of MAPs online, more and more of these individuals are feeling brave enough to post their faces and attitudes toward those who hate them. Traditionally, MAPS have always hidden behind cartoon profile pictures, as anonymity was the only shield they had against (rightfully) major backlash. That’s changing though, and we can now see these individuals willing to show their true selves.

Wonderful news - this document from The White House (published yesterday):

EXECUTIVE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT - OFFICE OF MANAGEMENT AND BUDGET
MEMORANDUM FOR THE HEADS OF EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENTS AND AGENCIES

FROM: Russell Vought - Director

SUBJECT: Training in the Federal Government
It has come to the President's attention that Executive Branch agencies have spent millions of taxpayer dollars to date "training" government workers to believe divisive, anti-American propaganda.

For example, according to press reports, employees across the Executive Branch have been required to attend trainings where they are told that "virtually all White people contribute to racism" or where they are required to say that they "benefit from racism." According to press reports, in some cases these training have further claimed that there is racism embedded in the belief that America is the land of opportunity or the belief that the most qualified person should receive a job.

These types of "trainings" not only run counter to the fundamental beliefs for which our Nation has stood since its inception, but they also engender division and resentment within the Federal workforce. We can be proud that as an employer, the Federal government has employees of all races, ethnicities, and religions. We can be proud that Americans from all over the country seek to join our workforce and dedicate themselves to public service. We can be proud of our continued efforts to welcome all individuals who seek to serve their fellow Americans as Federal employees. However, we cannot accept our employees receiving training that seeks to undercut our core values as Americans and drive division within our workforce.

The President has directed me to ensure that Federal agencies cease and desist from using taxpayer dollars to fund these divisive, un-American propaganda training sessions. Accordingly, to that end, the Office of Management and Budget will shortly issue more detailed guidance on implementing the President's directive. In the meantime, all agencies are directed to begin to identify all contracts or other agency spending related to any training on "critical race theory," "white privilege," or any other training or propaganda effort that teaches or suggests either (1) that the United States is an inherently racist or evil country or (2) that any race or ethnicity is inherently racist or evil. In addition, all agencies should begin to identify all available avenues within the law to cancel any such contracts and/or to divert Federal dollars away from these unAmerican propaganda training sessions.

The President, and his Administration, are fully committed to the fair and equal treatment of all individuals in the United States. The President has a proven track record of standing for those whose voice has long been ignored and who have failed to benefit from all our country has to offer, and he intends to continue to support all Americans, regardless of race, religion, or creed. The divisive, false, and demeaning propaganda of the critical race theory movement is contrary to all we stand for as Americans and should have no place in the Federal government.

Puts a big smile on my face. Round up all the Social Justice Warriors and drive them into the river. Mock them. Bring back the Pillory. Tar and Feathers. Make this kind of divisiveness and stupidity hurt so much so they will never attempt it again.

There is so much racial enmity in the united states that race warlords and poverty pimps have to invent it.
Latest example comes from Denver Colorado:

Denver councilwoman falsely accuses police of pulling gun on her, other protestors
Tensions continue to run high between one member of the Denver City Council and the Denver Police Department — with the latest battle playing out on Twitter.

Candi CdeBaca, who represents District 9 on the Council accused a Denver Police officer of pulling a gun on her and others using a video taken at a recent protest as evidence. The video she retweeted on Twitter drew dozens of responses, most against CdeBaca.

See if she gets re-elected to her position. Classic progressive politician - lying to support the narrative. Ignoring the truth.

From The Gateway Pundit:

Chicago BLM Militant Issues Threat: “We Have Demands and They Need to Be Met…You Can Listen to Us Or Get Ran Over”
A Black Lives Matter militant in Chicago this week issued what many have interpreted as a terroristic threat.

Taylor Norwood this week unleashed on Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot during a press conference for allowing the police to arrest her ‘innocent friends’ who were just exercising their Fist Amendment right.

Norwood accused Lightfoot of protecting the whites in North Chicago from blacks in Southside Chicago by blocking off exits to the north following back-to-back weekends of BLM terrorists looting Magnificent Mile.

“This is our city and we’re taking our shit back!” Norwood said. “We have demands and they need to be met and I feel like I’ve been saying this too much — we’re not asking you anything. We’re telling you what’s about to happen with your permission — or not! You can listen to us or you can get ran over.”

Always tearing down. Never building. Always trying to re-write history. Never learning what really happened. Being stupid really hurts. That these people are being willfully stupid makes it even worse. The real history is not going to be kind to them.

Got another one - Russian spy

| No Comments

From the United States Department of Justice:

Former Army Special Forces Officer Charged in Russian Espionage Conspiracy
According to court documents, from December 1996 to January 2011, Peter Rafael Dzibinski Debbins, 45, a former member of the U.S. Army, allegedly conspired with agents of a Russian intelligence service. During that time, Debbins periodically visited Russia and met with Russian intelligence agents. In 1997, Debbins was assigned a code name by Russian intelligence agents and signed a statement attesting that he wanted to serve Russia.

“Two espionage arrests in the past week — Ma in Hawaii and now Debbins in Virginia — demonstrate that we must remain vigilant against espionage from our two most malicious adversaries — Russia and China,” said John C. Demers, Assistant Attorney General for National Security. “Debbins violated his oath as a U.S. Army officer, betrayed the Special Forces and endangered our country’s national security by revealing classified information to Russian intelligence officers, providing details of his unit, and identifying Special Forces team members for Russian intelligence to try to recruit as a spy. Our country put its highest trust in this defendant, and he took that trust and weaponized it against the United States.”

Life in prison. Hope that was your desired exit strategy because that is what you are looking at.

Projection - loud and clear

From CNS News:

Obama’s CIA Director John Brennan: 'Donald Trump Personifies Political Corruption & Malfeasance’
Former Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan sent out a tweet on Aug. 5 saying that President Donald Trump “personifies political corruption & malfeasance.”

More at the site. From the entry for Psychological projection:

Psychological projection is a theory in psychology in which humans defend themselves against their own unconscious impulses or qualities (both positive and negative) by denying their existence in themselves while attributing them to others. For example, a person who is habitually rude may constantly accuse other people of being rude. It incorporates blame shifting.

Brennan is as dirty as they come. He sympathizes with Communism. He is at the heart of Obamagate. More?

Her fifteen minutes happened about 20 years ago. Please. From FOX News:

Hillary Clinton suggests she's willing to serve in Biden administration: 'I'm ready to help any way I can'
Hillary Clinton's days as a public servant may not be behind her.

Speaking at The 19th Represents Summit on Thursday, Clinton was asked if she would accept a job in the Biden administration.

“I’m ready to help in any way I can," Clinton responded, "because I think this will be a moment where every American -- I don’t care what party you are, I don’t care what age, race, gender, I don’t care -- every American should want to fix our country... So if you’re asked to serve, you should certainly consider that.”

That termagant is what is wrong with America. She and the rest of the deep state have no love for this Nation, they see it as an opportunity to personally profit and to gain power.

Now this will be a fun read - new book

From National File:

Jill Biden’s Ex-Husband Exposes Joe’s Adulterous Affair, Lies, And Campaign Bribery
Jill Biden’s ex-husband Bill Stevenson has completed an autobiographical book manuscript to be published before November’s election in which he devotes 80 pages to new bombshell details about Joe and Jill Biden, NATIONAL FILE has exclusively learned. The book claims that Joe and Jill began their romance in Delaware earlier than they have publicly stated, while Jill was still married to Stevenson, and that their affair led Stevenson to break up his marriage to Jill.

A few bits:

Bill Stevenson also blows the whistle on a bribery scheme in which Joe’s brother Frank took $3,000 from Stevenson ahead of Biden’s first Senate race to hand to the boss of the teamsters union to ensure that copies of the Wilmington News Journal, which endorsed Biden’s Republican incumbent opponent J. Caleb Boggs, were delivered three days late — after the polls had already closed.

And this:

Joe Biden has a close friendship with John Cochran, the former CEO of the Wilmington, Delaware-based credit card company MBNA, which was absorbed by Bank of America in 2006. Cochran purchased Biden’s Wilmington-area house from Biden in 1996 for $1.2 million. Cochran now chairs the University of Delaware Board of Trustees, where he is fighting to keep Biden’s records stored at the university from coming out in the public as concerned parties try to find information in the records pertaining to Tara Reade, the woman who has accused Biden of sexual assault.

Hmmmm - going vegan...

Leave it to the vegans to do something like this - from FOX News:

Man starts controversy with meat-only club after coworker has vegan club
This story about a workplace food dispute has people online going bananas.

An anonymous poster on Reddit’s "Am I the A--h---" subreddit said he started a meat-eating club at his job in response to a coworker’s vegan-only club.

He claimed that one of his colleagues started a vegan dinner club exclusively for their coworkers following a vegan, vegetarian or pescatarian diet. Other coworkers “will not be able to join the club,” the poster said the group’s “statement of purpose” read.

In response, the poster claimed that he and some other meat-eating coworkers started a burger and steak club to go out and try new restaurants each week. They only allowed meat-eaters to join. However, members of the vegan club filed a complaint with the company’s human resources department.

Emphasis mine - probably complaining that the meat eaters were not being tolerant. The irony escapes them. 4,500+ comments - fun to read.

Maroon? That great philosopher B. Bunny

From The New York Post:

Barack Obama’s half-brother rips ‘cold and ruthless’ ex-president
A “cold and ruthless” President Obama abandoned his Kenyan family in their greatest hours of need, according to a new tell-all by estranged half brother Malik Obama.

“He got rich and became a snob,” Malik, 62, told The Post via Skype from his home in the Kenyan village of Nyang’oma Kogelo. “What I saw was he was the kind of person that wants people to worship him. He needs to be worshiped and I don’t do that. I am his older brother so I don’t do that.”

The book, “Big Bad Brother From Kenya,” a self-published memoir which Malik Obama spent 22 years writing, hit Amazon with little fanfare on July 11. In its 435 pages, Malik covers the long and gradual falling out between him and the former President, which culminated in Malik publicly endorsing Donald Trump for president in 2016.

Both Malik and Barack Obama share the same father, Barack Hussein Obama Sr., a Kenyan economist who died in a car accident in 1982. Malik first met his half brother in 1985 when Barack was a 24-year-old Chicago community organizer, and they enjoyed warm relations for more than a decade. Malik spent years working in the United States, where he has dual citizenship, and frequently traveled between the US and his homeland. Malik was the best man at Barack Obama’s wedding in 1992. When Barack became president, Malik was a regular visitor to the Oval Office. 

A good long review with some photos of the two of them. Lots of anecdotes. President Obama is not a nice man but we knew this already. On order at my local library.

I had noticed that the State of Washington's authority for the COVID lockdown sunsetted on November 5th, 2020. Here is a screen cap of the document:

Got one of them - from National File:

Feds Identify Shirtless Antifa Arson Suspect Identified by Tattoo of Last Name on His Back
Police arrested a suspected a shirtless Antifa arsonist, who they identified after the suspect revealed a distinct tattoo on his back containing his unique surname, Schinzing, while setting fire to the Portland Justice Center in May.

Edward Thomas Schinzing, 32, faces up to 20 years in federal prison after taking part in an arson attack to the Portland Justice Center. He was given away by his self identifying tattoo.

Priors? Why... Funny you should ask:

At the time of the incident, the suspect was on probation for battering his girlfriend in front of her 8-year-old son.

Just the man to take home to meet the parents. Or maybe not:

Schinzing was reportedly homeless for the past two years, and has racked up seven misdemeanor and two felony charges.

A real peach. There were 30 civilian employees inside the building trying to shelter when he set it on fire. 20 years in the slammer is a good start.

Heh - two memes from Woodsterman

Disagree? Change my mind.

Breaking at Breitbart - this is crazy. It dwarfs any kind of foreign interference (Russia, China, etc...)

Election Interference: Google Purges Breitbart from Search Results
A few days after the 2016 election, at an internal meeting later leaked to Breitbart News, top Google executives, including Sundar Pichai, Sergey Brin, and Kent Walker lamented Trump’s victory, comparing Trump voters to “extremists,” and discussing their desire to make the Trump’s election and the populist movement a “blip” in history.”

True to their word, four years later, Google is deliberately working to interfere with the reelection of President Trump in 2020.

There are several ways in which Google is interfering in the 2020 election, but this article will focus primarily on one of them: political search bias.

Google Has Been Purging Breitbart Content from Search Results Since the 2016 Election
Search visibility is a key industry measure of how findable a publisher’s content is in Google search.  New data shows that Google has suppressed Breitbart’s search visibility by 99.7 percent since 2016.

On April 4, 2016, Breitbart ranked in the top ten search positions (i.e., on the first page of Google search results) for 355 key search terms; but now, as of July 20, 2020, Breitbart ranks in the top ten search position for only one search term.  And, on April 4, 2016, Breitbart ranked in the top 100 search positions for 16,820 key search terms; but now, as of July 20, 2020, Breitbart ranks in the top 10 search positions for only 55 search terms.

Moreover, organic Google search traffic to Breitbart (measured by unique visitors) is down 63% when comparing the first half of 2016 with the first half of 2020.

Much more at the site. They deny of course but the numbers do not lie. There are a lot of independent web metric sites out there that are independent of both Google and Breitbart. They bear this out with the same exact numbers. Time to use DuckDuckGo and leave the Goolag. The Brave browser is really good and very privacy oriented.

A case of sour grapes?

Sure looks like that. Great observation of his cognitive abilities too. From the New York Post:

Lincoln Project co-founder met with Trump for campaign role in 2016
Well, this is a little awkward.

Steve Schmidt, one of the co-founders of anti-Trump political action group the Lincoln Project, met with then-candidate Donald Trump and tried to join his campaign during a 2016 Manhattan meeting, sources with knowledge of the conversation told The Post.

But the Republican operative — best known for his work on John McCain’s failed presidential bid before becoming one of the faces of the “Never Trump” movement — failed to get the gig because Trump thought he was a “total idiot,” one of the sources said.

And a bit more:

Fast forward to today and Schmidt and his Lincoln Project pals are some of the most vociferous opponents of Trump — a profitable gig for a group of people whose eyebrow-raising legal woes have sparked questions about motive and were documented by The Post last week.

In a buzzworthy New York Times op-ed last December, the band of conservatives painted themselves as noble crusaders against a “bogus prophet,” and their splashy ads deliberately designed to bait the president have raked in $20 million in fundraising cash.

Perhaps no one in the group has been more critical of the president than Schmidt who has described Trump as a “con man,” “idiot,” “imbecile,” “rancid and wretched fool,” “lethally stupid,” “grotesque,” and a “racist disgrace.”

But it wasn’t always this way.

More at the site. Glad that Schmidt never got hired. Right now, he is causing damage to Trump's election for the sole purpose of sour grapes and personal gain. This is without any morals or conscience. He is a spoiled little six-year-old throwing a tantrum. Veruca Salt comes to mind if you want a cultural reference. Fscking Paaaaathetic...

We Asked Our Readers to Send Photos of the Democrat Party Sanctioned Destruction and Rioting in their Community — We Were Shocked at What They Sent In

And here are just two - stunning. This is not a protest, this is anarchy and fascism trying to get control of America.
