Once men turned their thinking over to machines in the hope that this would set them free. But that only permitted other men with machines to enslave them. —Frank Herbert, Dune

Twisted transgender sex attacker who used fake penis to trick victims into bed jailed

Singh told one victim he was born a boy, had a sex change to become a woman, and now wanted to be a man again. He told another victim he would be having a sex change to become a woman. The latter victim met with Singh after what she believed was the sex change operation, and noticed that he now had breasts but no scarring.
Describing the sexual contact, one victim said: “He looked like a guy, he acted like a guy.”
The victim only discovered Singh had female genitalia after finding a sex toy some months into their relationship. She told police she felt “so stupid” that she had fallen for such lies.

They want you weak, don’t speak
Don’t question, don’t think
Keep staring at your smart phone
Get dumber every week

Now give up your freedom and shush
Oh Jesus, what happened to us?

Defending Mother Russia’s Skies | Royal United Services Institute The mainstay of KV GBAD capabilities is the 53T6 (NATO reporting name ABM-03 Gazelle) anti-ballistic missile (ABM) system. Deployed to protect Moscow and its environs, the ABM-03 is equipped with a 10-kiloton nuclear warhead. It is designed to defeat incoming ballistic missiles by detonating in close proximity, destroying them in the process. The 53T6’s surface-to-air missiles (SAMs) are believed to have a range of up to 54 nautical miles (100 km). They are thought to be capable of engaging warheads at a maximum altitude of 98,000 ft (30,000 m). Target acquisition and fire control is provided by a solitary Don-2N (Pill Box) Ultra High Frequency (UHF: 420 MHz to 450MHz/890MHz to 942MHz) radar. The 53T6 is believed to be supported by additional, conventional SAM systems. These include three S-300PM1/2 (SA-20A/B Gargoyle) and five S-400 (SA-21 Growler) regiments. These long-range systems are presumably tasked with intercepting warheads not destroyed by the 53T6.

YouTuber sanctioned over Russian ‘propaganda’ A British YouTuber has been sanctioned by the UK government over claims that he has spread pro-Russian propaganda during its invasion of Ukraine. Graham Phillips was condemned in April for filming an interview with captured British national Aiden Aslin. He was banned from Ukraine in 2014, but managed to return to the country shortly after Russian forces launched their invasion in February. He is one of 42 people named in the latest round of sanctions. The move means that Mr Phillips – who says he largely relies on crowdfunding and is currently in the Donbas region of Ukraine – will have his assets frozen in the UK.

    How much does it cost to move a Carrier Battle Group? BTW We’re broke if anybody cares.
    Tell Nancy to park her ass at home or at the paint and spackle shop.

      As to cost: there is no money, there is no FIAT currency — there is only power. But there is a price to pay, eventually. Can you guess who always gets to foot the bill?

    I spent some time in the oilfields and I am familiar with pump jacks of various kinds. I’ve never seen one like that. 450 feet, eh? I worked on wells two miles deep. Thanks for posting that one.

    You’ll own nothing, all right…but the “happy” part is optional: https://www.libertystorch.info/2021/08/29/the-last-of-the-really-fluffy-towels/

    “You’ll own nothing, all right…but the “happy” part is optional . . . ”

    Well somebody’s gonna own it. Maybe the people on the WEF?

  • Dirk July 30, 2022, 8:15 AM

    Have zero intent on owning nothing, my toys make me happy. I’ll not be donating them without a serious throat punch or two.

    How we live is entirely up to us. You believe this bull shit, it’s sure to happen to you. “ Claus slob”means fuckall to me. What he says or thinks even less. He’s a fucking Nazi pig!

    It’s the seed planted that grows, as an idea does. Law enforcement is told they retire at 65, and die three years later. I retired at 50, I’ll be around into my 90s. No one but me gets to make those choices.

    Life is about choices, about learning life’s lessons well, make good choices, live a wonderful life.

    I’m sorry it amuses me to think anybody here believes the bullshit the communists sling. But some do, it’s a form of the big lie, say it loud enough, long enough it’s gotta be true. Fuck that, fuck them!

      You know better’n that Dirk. Most people here at AD are on the ball. Maybe not 100%, and maybe wishing things were diff. But from what I’ve seen over the past few years here is that most everyone is “onboard” to one degree or another. If they weren’t you probably wouldn’t hang here, nor would I. Birds of a feather and all that. I think of AD as part of my “online” tribe. People I could probably get along with in meatspace. I learn stuff here, maybe teach some, exchange ideas, and enjoy. The only downside is that the subject matter we all gather here to discuss for the most part is stuff we all detest. I guess, all of us pulling together, as it were, toward a common goal is satisfying. At least to me it is. Maybe to other it is as well. Where else can you congregate with 20 or more people around the world and everybody pretty much gets along? We get along better’n most fambly’s. lol

      • Dirk July 30, 2022, 4:48 PM

        Ghost, your right, most here do get it, na all get it, sometimes the communist slide one in which resonates. Just may be truth. After heats put on dissolves like sugar in hot water.

        I also learn a lot here. To be frank you sir have educated me for years.

        Measuring exactly where you stand morally ethically and legally is a good thing.

          Dirk sed: “To be frank you sir have educated me for years.”
          Believe it or not I have a text file on my desktop named Dirk.txt and it contains your words in a comment here on 07Apr2022 with a lot of info on AR15 builds. It’s a keeper, for future reference.

    I saw a headline that Vegas is down to 50 days of clean water. 😳

    • ghostsniper July 30, 2022, 6:40 PM
