The US is not Ready for a Peer to Peer Fight in Europe The G. W. Bush, Obama, Trump and Biden Administrations, the US Department of Defense, and our Congress have been derelict in their duties to provide America with ready and peer defeating ground combat unit capabilities. Rather – we have a ground combat armed force so woefully ill-equipped to fight and win against our peer level threats, such as Russia, that the National Strategy/Policy question is: What they have been focusing on, if not such a vital national military capability? A safe bet would be that one or all of these are their exclusive focus (es): Domestic politics? Their re-election? Increasing their personal celebrity and wealth? Not their concerns or interest?
Noted in Passing: In America are vast piles of Deadwood and Tinder Just Waiting for a Spark UPDATE: Shooting in Rose City Park Neighborhood, One Deceased and Multiple Victims Injured A preliminary investigation into the February 19, 2022 shooting near the intersection of Northeast 55th Avenue and Northeast Hassalo Street indicates this incident started with a confrontation between an armed homeowner and armed protesters. The scene was extremely chaotic, and a number of witnesses were uncooperative with responding officers. Most people on scene left without talking to police. Detectives believe a large number of people either witnessed what happened, or recorded the incident as it unfolded. This is a very complicated incident, and investigators are trying to put this puzzle together without having all the pieces. Detectives ask that anyone with information or video please contact Detective Scott Broughton at Scott.Broughton@portlandoregon.gov (503) 823-3774 or Detective Rico Beniga at Rico.Beniga@portlandoregon.gov or 503-823-0457. The case number is 22-47502.

The Barcelona Sants station will have a urinal that will measure the hydration of users –This system “allows us to improve hydration non-invasively and in real time through urine” and will offer the user the hydration score on a screen installed in the same basins. Thus, the toilets will include this new service for the same 1 euro entrance fee and, at no additional cost, the user will be able to have access to both the urine analysis provided by the urinal and to drink water at the free hydration point of the facilities.
Why Progressives Don’t Care For Black Lives What has occurred in San Francisco and other progressive cities is the triumph of evangelical Wokeism over evidence-based medical care. Many progressives are well-meaning. Others, like the San Francisco Coalition for Homelessness, defend open drug scenes, including ones populated by pregnant addicts. Radical Left activists at the Coalition, openly at war with “capitalism,” use appeals-to-emotion, and bullying, to demonize those who advocate mainstream addiction medicine and psychiatry.
We are seeing the same thing with the Canada trucker protest. The whole system has been mobilized to address what it views as an attack. Banks, corporations, and the media are doing much of the heavy lifting. Outside of Canada, there is close to a media blackout as a defense against possible protests. The American media is refusing to cover a story north of the border because they view it as a threat. This is something that the paleocons never anticipated. They saw the administrative state as a leviathan that served the interests of the managerial elite. The network of people at the top had control of the system. Instead, it seems to have evolved into an organism that has agency of its own. The people at the top are not masters of the universe steering the system, but captives hanging on for dear life.
Mother Tackles Suspect Accused of Punching 4 Year Old Son in Times Square –
NYPD arrest Babacar Mbaye for punching 4-year-old, kicking cop Mbaye — who was on supervised[??] release in connection with other recent random attacks – was charged with felony assault, reckless endangerment and resisting arrest, according to police and prosecutors. He has three open misdemeanors for assaulting strangers dating back to the summer, including two in the past month, one where he allegedly pushed a stranger and punched her twice in the shoulder and the other where he punched a stranger in the head, prosecutors said.
We are accustomed to the tired trope of the pristine Disneyland-style perfect Utopia where all is not right and people are miserable under the clean surface. But what about the opposite?

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: “I would like to see an all trans DMV before things totally collapse.”
The media is not activism but simply an activity that is an instinctive part of the leviathan. That old idea of the media being the fourth estate has been replaced with a new model where all four estates are assimilated into the whole. The leviathan is the source of secular authority, moral authority, public consensus, and the flow of information throughout the empire.
While part of the enthusiasm for compulsory vaccination comes from a very real propaganda effort by the establishment, there is a kind of barely concealed glee that almost always comes out of people who are vocally in favor of these measures. You can see how they frequently begin by affirming the necessity of these vaccination campaigns, thus affirming the established view. But after that comes the glee of envisioning what will happen to those who refuse, talk of what the consequences should be for them and so forth. Since these people depend on the repression of society to feel powerful, any increase in repression equals new opportunities for them to enjoy the misery of their peers. I believe this behavior serves in part to explain the frequent occurrence of tyranny throughout human history – many are happy in the labor camps as long as those who are there with them are not.

Olympic skier suffers frozen penis during cross-country race Lindholm’s penis became frozen over the weekend for the second time in a cross-country skiing race following a similar incident in Ruka, Finland, last year. Lindholm, who spent under an hour and 16 minutes trekking the course in freezing winds, needed a heat pack at the end of the event to thaw out his body part.
Secrets Of The Great Families When the Darwins weren’t marrying each other, they were marrying others of their same intellectual caliber. There is at least one Darwin-Huxley marriage: that would be George Pember Darwin (a computer scientist, Charles’ great-grandson) and Angela Huxley (Thomas’ great-granddaughter) in 1964. But also, Margaret Darwin (Charles’ granddaughter) married Geoffrey Keynes (John Maynard Keynes’ brother, and himself no slacker – he pioneered blood transfusion in Britain). And John Maynard and Geoffrey’s sister, Margaret Keynes, married Archibald Hill, who won the Nobel Prize in Medicine. And let’s not forget Marie Curie’s daughter marrying a Nobel Peace Prize laureate.
What It’s Like To Ride The World’s Fastest Zip Line! ZipWorld Velocity 2 in Wales catapults you down over an old slate mine at over 100mph! It is the longest in Europe and the zip line fastest in the world! Here is what it’s like to go down it, from the journey up to the top to the disembark at the end. A birds-eye view. It’s absolutely incredible. It is definitely even higher and quicker than it looks here when you do it in person!

In regards to the lake trout ice fishing incident. He seemed to take it well. Hilarious!
If you live in Minnesota, outside the Twin Cities, you will hear many ice fishing house stories. Many of these are true. Two stories with central heat, kitchen and bedrooms? True. One needs a permit to have one on the lake? True. That’s because if you don’t get it off the lake before the thaw, and it falls in, you will be fined for the costs of hauling it back out. So-and-so was conceived in an ice fishing house on Long Lake? Most likely true. In Minnesota a gal who will hang out with you in the ice fishing house is, well, appreciated.

I normally refrain from making comments about another’s physical appearance. However, in this case, I see another wretched display from someone who, is at heart, miserable with herself and eats to deal with her psycho/sexual emotional pain. Women like this were not uncommonly sexually abused as children. She has made herself unattractive and undesirable, thereby perpetuating her psychic pain, ensuring her captivity in a negative feedback loop.
Her rant is utterly predictable and, I believe, predicated on her bitter misandry.
apply as needed.
King County: again, with the bigotry of low expectations. I mean, if you can steal a bike, you can certainly steal a helmet.

Now we wished we’d been the meanest mother fuckers on the planet, with advanced armaments and soldiery oozing out of every crevice of our nation. Instead, we got trannies. When I saw the NATO defense ministers of 4 northern countries, and they were all female hipsters in pant suits, I shook my head. When I noted that Sweden took the penis off of their military heraldic lion, I saw what the future held. Every vid clip of the Ukrainian front has to feature a female in army gear, waddling up the road, because: thighs.
Combat readiness is everything but the pap they’ve been doing. My only hope is that there are 19 year-old men with an excess of testosterone in the ranks of the 82nd Airborne (which I hope doesn’t get in the fight, but every day we show weakness the chances become greater) and on the HarryAss Truman in the Med. BTW, I use profanity because my mind was warped in the infantry when I was 17 through 27 years of age and I had to train for the Soviet onslaught expected during the Cold War. It’s a warfighter mindset and I think you’d like some warriors around, especially in the armies West of the Uke-Ru border.
I suppose many don’t know what happened in Finland in the winter of 39-40. I know for a fact the command-level of the US Army has forgotten. Stalin killed off his army officer corps in the 30s, as a commie thing, and then decided to invade Finland. He had tanks out the ass, plus numbers of troops and artillery – it set up as a complete overmatch and a push-over. What nobody expected was Finnish skiers, and -45 degree temperatures. In those days, Finnish skiers wore such good gear that they never froze their peckers off. (coughs). At any rate, the Russians, poorly led and pompous, had to use narrow forest roads (Finland is flat and gently rolling country, with lakes and forests and a fukton of snow – it is not mountainous like Sweden and Norway) for their tank columns. The Finns would ski through the forests, in winter whites, and get on the flanks and in the rear of the tankers. They destroyed armor and the supply trains using ranger tactics. They sniped at individual soldiers to the degree that it became epic, and the Rooskies were shitting their pants daily in fear. The Winter War was so incredible that even though the Russians eventually pushed through with numbers, they accepted terms with Finland with the advantages Finland earned by being war gods of winter.
All good things to keep in mind. never give up.
Oh – I keep reading how this war is either the fault of the US, or actually a US war. That is stupid, and does it even require a refutation? Some will say NATO wants the war to keep its credibility or reason for being. Uhhhhh…say again?? I’ll admit to some warbucks daddies in smoke-filled rooms somewhere, but it’s a stretch to believe you want to go into the room with the bear because: its good for you. No. It’s not good for you. It’s your worst fukn day.
Hey, that analogy is good. What we need is a guy like Grandpa Walton who leads a grizzly at full speed into his house and closes the back door on him. We need guys like the big arctic explorer Gerard posted the other day, whose manliness knows no bounds. We need guys in Ukraine who “stay behind” as the T-76s roll past and then they close the door on the bear.
BTW, there is a barracks law in the infantry that has a cure for LGBTQ in the ranks. Don’t make me spell it out.
Whatever it is it is well to remember that fragging is much too good for them.
always a worthy reminder-
That’s the guy who personifies what happened, but I wanted to flesh it out as to the whole war – I’ve seen evidence that the West has forgotten it, but you can bet your ass that the Russians remember it very well. Sniper accuracy is a bitch, but ski troops are a mother fucker.

I’ll spell it out.
I was in from age 19-23, and it was balls out front constantly with no letup. That’s what you have when you place dangerous young men seeing distance from the wall and tell them to stand there for however long it takes. Our unit was “The Top of the Rock” where the wind blew hard off the hawk tac site and the snow was deep much of the year – we were the winter soldiers and we played hard.
Soldiers constantly come and go in permanent parties and when the young negro showed up everyone knew its gig, especially the other negro’s. The silent word when out and it was gone in 3 days. If it hadn’t gone down that way it would have gone down another way. You simply cannot mix a drop of estrogen into an Olympic swimming pool of testosterone. “YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH!”
I see the newsreels (YouTubes) of the All Americans camping out in Poland, and I can imagine some All American youngsters not willing to be made fools of. How long will those wimmins last in the ranks when the balloon goes up? To the rear, march! There are plenty of hard and essential tasks well back in the combat trains. Grab your shit, and don’t forget to write.
There are lots of tasks like LP/OP duty for the limp-wristed men, and it’s interesting how the unit can pull out and the LP/OP stay behind and become lost for a week or two.
Then, there’s the violent solutions.
GEN Milley is irrelevant in wartime. But, on Monday next, GEN Austin will turn up at his SecDef office and find his desk shit in a box; his mug and his challenge coins and his ceremonial sword all stuffed in sideways. The office assistant will say, “General, didn’t anyone tell you you’ve been replaced?” Inside the closed inner office door he’ll hear a guy on the phone, yelling into the receiver like it was a sound-powered field phone. Invectives, growls and lots of “fucks!” Austin will carry his shit box down the hall, and office staff will be running in circles, peeing themselves. He’ll get on the elevator, and shake some dew out of his own trouser leg. GEN Austin, the warfighters are here.
Give me: 1 reinforced Ranger battalion, and one pissed-off national guard division, and we’ll see how NATO ought to be.
Re. the CS Lewis quote:
Aristotle, Politics, from Oxford University Press, 1995
That is true, because the tyrant inwardly knows his limitations and that he is cowardly, thus he is resentful of the man that does not suffer as he does. What a tortured soul. It would be justice to set it free from these earthly bounds so that it might soar as it’s due. Do the right thing.
Amusing times news? What a joke. Not a word spoken of China, everything is sad indeed. Nothing on a thousand no maybe a hundred thousand military-aged boys and men from around the world, crossing our border. Seem pretty fit to me.
The fence around the capital, perfect to keep the scum in, let ‘em feed on each other.
If your counting on anybody from govt to lead you, feed you, provide for you, you’re absolutely fucked.
Ukraine isn’t our business, Canada, we’ll Canada is gone, who hasn’t seen this coming. While I’m very proud of the truckers, nothing changed. Perhaps the best thing to occur is the truckers pushed the lil faggot to show his cards.
Now you have mayors, police chiefs threatening to sell off protesters’ property. I think not
gwbnyc-that roiling,mushrooming clownface is exactly how the cremains would look if DC were nuked.

I find the urinal thing a bit creepy and way overpriced but not a completely outrageous idea.
One of my Industrial clients does something similar but cheaper and less creepy.
Over each urinal at eyeline they have a small poster 8×10 or so.
It has a paragraph about how important hydration is then 6 or so color blocks ranging from deep yellow to clear with legend saying what each color says about your hydration state.
I try to stay hydrated and know that pee color is an indicator. I’d never paid proper attention before when peering. Now I do.
I used to think my pee was absolutely clear, it always looked perfectly clear.
Then I had my cataracts removed, and suddenly my pee was yellow. The yellowing cataracts change the color of everything; blue shirts didn’t look greenish anymore.
