Strange Daze: Yeah, we’re goin’ to the Roadhouse

Speaking of hearts, there is the current heart-of-the-matter, the Covid-19 engineered bioweapon being used internationally to suppress formerly free citizens of formerly democratic republics. It becomes more obvious each day that everything connected to this extravaganza is other than it appears to be. Chiefly, the vaccine is not a vaccine and it will probably end up killing more people than the Covid-19 disease and its variants. A lot of those deaths will be caused in the months ahead by damage to people’s hearts and other organs from spike proteins generated via mRNA shots. The reported official numbers are all lies of one kind or another, issued by agencies primarily concerned not with public health but with covering asses at the highest level, so do not trust them. If you haven’t had a vax shot, better seriously consider steering clear of your government’s desperate attempts to get the job done.

Inside the new woke time capsule is a snapshot of a nation on the verge of another civil war.

The Kabul NEO was a Total Failure –We not only failed to accomplish the mission we lost eleven Marines, a navy corpsman, and an army sergeant in the process and under circumstances which were completely avoidable. The Pentagon contends the losses came from one suicide vest IED. That is a blatant lie, there is not an explosive compound in the world that could generate that much blast power with the quantities used in a suicide vest. ISIS never sends a single suicide bomber anyway; they send multiple bombers and men with guns to shoot into the crowd of first responders. But that is one minor lie in the flood of disinformation fed us by our legacy media and amateur hour administration over this debacle.

Not sure if this counts as “the left is eating itself”, but the (unofficial) Brandeis Suggested Language List now recommends students not use the term “trigger warning” because it is “violent language”.
For Islamists, war is indeed forever. For such fanatics, defeat is only ever temporary. For the west, however, there are no “forever wars.” Its wars are either won or lost; there are victors and vanquished. What fuels the jihad is the power of an idea. That idea is the cult of death.

Portland mayor calls for funds to rehire retired police officers amid crime spike

China Ghost Cities: KANGBASHI: THE GREAT GRANDDADDY OF CHINA’S NEW CITIESThese villas, built in the New City of Kangbashi in Ordos County, Inner Mongolia, were designed to be exclusive dwellings for wealthy families who would send their children to the “model school” envisioned to nestle beside the man-made lake in this Gobi Desert town. The lake was built and yachts sold to float on it. No word on whether the school ever opened.

Decades of falling crime rates, mean that half the country is too young to remember the bad old days. Politicians, activists, and young people contend that because crime rates have been so low, we can afford to decarcerate, depolice, and deprosecute—giving up, in other words, the tools that got us here. Root-causes thinking is back. “Progressive prosecutors” like Baltimore’s Marilyn Mosby and San Francisco’s Chesa Boudin harp on it. Editorialists dredge up the false wisdom of the 1960s and regurgitate it as though it’s something new.

The Phoney War was the eight months at the beginning of WWII when nobody was doing large-scale fighting. Everyone had different clever puns making fun of this: the British called it the Bore War; the Germans called it the Sitzkrieg. Anyway, be careful what you wish for.

Rest In Peace  Liberty’s Torch A great man died yesterday: Dr, Angelo M. Codevilla, who was walking home from church when he was hit by a drunk driver. He was taken to a hospital, where he died of his injuries… The following, from a 2010 essay, neatly encapsulates his conclusions:

Our ruling class’s agenda is power for itself. While it stakes its claim through intellectual-moral pretense, it holds power by one of the oldest and most prosaic of means: patronage and promises thereof. Like left-wing parties always and everywhere, it is a “machine,” that is, based on providing tangible rewards to its members. Such parties often provide rank-and-file activists with modest livelihoods and enhance mightily the upper levels’ wealth. Because this is so, whatever else such parties might accomplish, they must feed the machine by transferring money or jobs or privileges — civic as well as economic — to the party’s clients, directly or indirectly. This, incidentally, is close to Aristotle’s view of democracy. Hence our ruling class’s standard approach to any and all matters, its solution to any and all problems, is to increase the power of the government — meaning of those who run it, meaning themselves, to profit those who pay with political support for privileged jobs, contracts, etc. Hence more power for the ruling class has been our ruling class’s solution not just for economic downturns and social ills but also for hurricanes and tornadoes, global cooling and global warming. A priori, one might wonder whether enriching and empowering individuals of a certain kind can make Americans kinder and gentler, much less control the weather. But there can be no doubt that such power and money makes Americans ever more dependent on those who wield it. Let us now look at what this means in our time.

Today’s blacklisted American: Garden hoes banned by Facebook! They have now reached the point where no rational discussion is possible, since their positions have become insane. Gardening hoes must be banned as well as any discussion by gardeners about killing garden pests.

What is UN Agenda 21? – This plan is a whole life plan.  It involves the educational system, the energy market, the transportation system, the governmental system, the health care system, food production, and more.  The plan is to restrict your choices, limit your funds, narrow your freedoms, and take away your voice.  One of the ways is by using the Delphi Technique to ‘manufacture consensus.’ Another is to infiltrate community groups or actually start neighborhood associations with hand-picked ‘leaders’.  Another is to groom and train future candidates for local offices.  Another is to sponsor non-governmental groups that go into schools and train children.  Another is to offer federal and private grants and funding for city programs that further the agenda.  Another is to educate a new generation of land use planners to require New Urbanism.  Another is to convert factories to other uses, introduce energy measures that penalize manufacturing, and set energy consumption goals to pre-1985 levels.  Another is to allow unregulated immigration in order to lower standards of living and drain local resources.

      Sure, sure, sure. I’ll tell all that to a friend of mine who spent 3 weeks in ICU with Covid-19 and still can’t walk too well and gets breathless after slight exertion 4 months later. Oh, and went from type 2 to type 1 diabetes at the same time, so has to use an insulin pump now.

      • MMinWA September 29, 2021, 5:39 AM

        Tough luck for your friend. Especially since he was in good physical condition with no issues like overweight or a heart problem. Oh wait, diabetes…hmmm.

        And despite having taken an injection, right?

        Have you morphed into blaming the unvaccinated yet?

        • Mike Austin September 30, 2021, 3:05 AM

          Someone needs to inform ‘Fletcher Christian’ that anecdotal evidence is inadmissible in the court of Logic. What may be true about his diabetic friend is not true about the populace as a whole.

          It still surprises me that perhaps 40 percent of Americans have bought in—and continue to buy in—the rabid COVID nonsense promulgated by the US Government, an entity not known for veracity or honor.

  • Dirk September 28, 2021, 8:12 AM

    Hiring more popo, in Portland Oregon,,,,,, this has got to be the height of hypocrisy. What was once the belle of the ball “ Portland”, is the shithole the elected leaders envisioned they wanted.

    Riddle me this,,,,, how do these leaders these representatives have any honor, any standing, in future shots called for The City of Roses.

    You the people of greater Portland got the communist leadership you deserved. Fuck You,


    • Mike Austin September 28, 2021, 9:35 AM

      I lived in “The City of Roses” off and on for 27 years (1959 – 1993). I took time off from the craziness there to wonder around south of the Rio Grande and parts even more yonder. I watched its decline and decay up close and personal. One who was not living in Portland during its halcyon days (c. 1970 – c. 1990) would have no idea of how lovely and beautiful the city once was.

      But Leftism is a disease that hates the Beautiful and the Lovely. The rot both civic and physical began in the 1980s. Normal folks began to depart around then, to be replaced by the tattooed, the blue haired, the sexually degenerate, the drug addicted, the gender confused, the vocal fryers, the beta males, and yoga masters searching for their inner lesbian.

      What I saw on the streets of the City of Roses toward the end of my time there cannot be accurately described by me; that is, I do not wish to recall such things. One incident stands out, however, and will serve to define the rest.

      It was the summer of 1993 in downtown Portland. The city was having its annual ‘Gay Pride’ parade. The streets along the route of this event were packed with Portlanders eager to demonstrate their “progressiveness” to each other. I happened to be in the area, and stopped to gawk at this public nuisance that would have embarrassed Fellini. I spotted a young father who had his daughter on his shoulders. She was maybe five years old. They were both watching a “show” on one of the floats. On this portable stage were two males, one dressed as a nun, the other as a priest. The “priest” was publicly sodomizing the “nun”. The girl was clapping as her father beamed with pride.

      Enough. To cleanse myself I moved to Argentina for the next ten years, and then hid in the Andes and the jungles of South America for another year just to make sure.

      Dirk, you ask “how do these leaders these representatives have any honor”. They do not. Honor is another one of those words—Chastity, Modesty, Charity and decency are others—that “progressives” hate. The leadership of Portland reflects the Portlanders themselves.

        old airplane pilots’ wisdom:

        is a good landing.

        • PA Cat September 28, 2021, 4:28 PM

          I grew up with the Casey Stengel version of that wisdom: “Old timers’ games, weekends, and airplane landings are alike. If you can walk away from them, they’re successful.”

          old airplane pilots’ wisdom:
          any landing you can walk away from,
          is a good landing.

          Preach it, brother. As the resident airline pilot here, I dunno how many thousand landings I’ve got, but I do know that I’ve got a bit more than 24,000 hours flying airplanes for the last 42 years. The key to my success? Making sure that my logbooks show at least as many landings as takeoffs.

          And jumping out of an airplane on purpose is nuts. Jumping out of an airplane on purpose, and without a parachute is insane.

          • EX-Californian Pete September 28, 2021, 6:40 PM

            AZL- a pilot? 24,000 hours?
            Damn, that’s both awesome and jealousy-generating.
            All my “piloting” has been on hang gliders (back in the 80’s and 90’s) and once in an ultralight- a trike, kinda powered-parachute thing. Maybe around 340-370 hours total.

            I did one skydive back in the early 2000’s- once was enough for me. And I had 2 parachutes. Yes, jumping with no chute is insane!

    Why the anti-Christian quote from Asimov on the sidebar?

    • James ONeil September 28, 2021, 10:26 AM

      Free speech and you can’t counter an argument if you simply ignore it?

      The two paragraphs preceding the quote:
      “Creationists make it sound as though a “theory” is something you dreamt up after being drunk all night.

      Properly read, the Bible is the most potent force for atheism ever conceived.”

      As Gerald posted it, w/o those two paragraphs, I’ve no trouble substituting anyone in D.C. and most holding any public office in the U.S., for the creationists Asimov was panning.

    I’ve been harping about Agenda-21 in comment sections and on my old blog for over a decade. The end game is everyone living in skyscraper hovels depending on public transportation, while the elite have free travel and use of the new Biospheres.

    Places like Chico, CA, Vail, CO, and my little town, Walhalla, SC, will basically become ghost towns, abandoned like the old gold and silver mining towns of the old west.

    That is the future the NWO has planned for us all.

    • Mike Austin September 28, 2021, 12:14 PM

      “The end game is everyone living in skyscraper hovels depending on public transportation, while the elite have free travel and use of the new Biospheres.” Sounds like New York City today. Only, one needs to add public defecation, rats running wild, and rampant criminality.

      “That is the future the NWO has planned for us all.” Bond Villain Klaus Schwab and his fellow vermin at the pompously named “World Economic Forum” can plan all they like. They never learned that in war, the enemy—you and me and our Tribe—always get a vote.

      Hey Klaus! I hope you like surprises. I really do.

  • Callmelennie September 28, 2021, 1:58 PM

    When I heard that a suicide bomber had killed over 100 people my first reaction was also, “They must mean a car bomb, no walking suicide bomber could walk into packed crowd and kill 100 people. Twenty maybe, because the shredded bodies of the people immediately around the bomber would absorb the blast and shrapnel and heat and act as human shields for the rest of the crowd.

    So I knew there was more to the story; just as I knew that the lack of a name and corroborating video debunked the idea that the Pentagon had “nailed” a leader of ISIS-K (which, BTW is not a “k” sound at all but a Mideast variant of “h”)

    Sheesh, these people cant even get Middle Eastern consonants right

    • Snakepit Kansas September 29, 2021, 5:20 AM

      Good point. Casey and Ghost would know much better than I, but a 155mmHE round dropped in a packed crowd might not kill 150 people like this reported “suicide vest” did. Had to have been something very large and brought in and assembled from truck(s). It had to have been huge and brought in close enough to the front lines to kill Marines and other servicemen. It was well coordinated, with planned logistics and cooperation from the Taliban. The Marines were face to face with the crowds outside. There should have been a 100 meter DMZ/buffer zone between the two at minimum. The media reported that US intelligence knew something big was going to happen two days prior to this bombing, yet Marines were left at point blank range with the enemy. I blame the Commander in Chief.

      13 US flags remain posted in my front yard.

      • Casey Klahn September 29, 2021, 8:08 PM

        It’s just a matter of the size of the Ker’Splosive used. The crowded KZ was ripe for the bomber’s evil task. I won’r argue re: the absorption of blast by a loosely cohesive swarm of human bodies. I know a whale body has a cohesive mass that needs like a crate of TNT to fling whaley debris hundreds of feet. If you look at those cartoon drawings of suicide bombers with red dynamite sticks all around their rib cage: that’s a case of TNT. But, without recreating the scene (like the CSI or Myth-busters TV shows do), nobody can predict a loosely packed crowd would absorb and defeat a blast radius. My suspicion is the blast would decimate a large radius because there is air between the bodies. Even if they were asshole to elbow they weren’t a mass, per se. A 155mm arty shell will fuck up lots and lots of shit, and the blast radius (going by memory) is probably in the 60meters all directions, and possibly 90 meters. You may survive an airblast of a 155 right above your head (I know a guy who did), but if it chucks debris and the shrapnel cuts into you, there isn’t much to be said for your chances. Another mitigating factor is the Earth, which may absorb and direct the blast up instead of out. Concussion may be survived at 60 or 70 meters, but if you have lived on goat and rice you may crump at 100 meters.
        If I were a talib., and I had planned said event, I’d have attacked with a series of bombers.

  • John A. Fleming September 28, 2021, 2:28 PM

    I reckon that guy has lots of target jumping trials, so that he is skilled in judging his lateral position relative to a ground target and then flying to a location directly above it. He has to be completely set up probably at that 6000ft beep in his helmet, as there will be very little time to make any more gross adjustments in position after that. And of course, he has to do that jump on a day with zero winds aloft from the ground to his commit point, so the wind doesn’t push him away from the net.
    I think the novel part is when he flips on his back, he has to be configured such that his body positioning doesn’t cause additional unwanted (!) lateral drift. I reckon he practiced a number of times with a GPS unit beforehand.

    Even so, he almost missed. Eventually somebody will miss and crater. I think that will be rarely attempted. I think the wing suit guys will figure out how to adapt his net for their purposes.

    Men do these risky dangerous things, and women watch. When men have made it safe enough, then women try it. It was that way in rockclimbing. When I started, there were very few women rockclimbers. The necessity of having to run it out on bad rock with manky protection on a desirable route kept nearly all the women and a lot of the men safely on the ground, sometimes me too.

  • Dirk September 29, 2021, 8:10 AM

    Balls, that fella has a set of balls 12 ft tall. That is a leap of faith. I use to “ jump” recreationally from lil airplanes. That it was fun unti I experienced a chute malfunction titled, “Line Over”. Was a Modified T28 with panels, extra cut, for maneuverability! Yea right

    I did everything right, climbed it, shook it out, was unable to cut away. Left shoulder pin wouldn’t come free. The right side was free, I was hanging at an angle, back then a piece of line was tied from the main to the reserve handle, this “ Stevens Cutaway” line pulled the reserve toggle, deploying the reserve.

    Was a miracle it deployed correctly, hit hard, tumbled forever. At 20 popped us, gathered my kit, and jogged to the recovered vehicle.

    I partied like a rock star the rest of that day. Cheated death, well the truth is,,,,death cheated me. A associate who Jumped right after me, also had a malfunction, landed straddling a barbed wire fence.

    To this day he swears it cushioned the crash landing. Turns out a FNG, had packed our chutes commercial facility at the Lincoln Airport, early 70s. Cost 25.00 awack. Did a few more, but was headed for the USN.

    My last jump was a round chute out of France, was a highly maneuverable.

    Being practical back then, I recognized I could not afford all my hobbies, bird hunting, MX, and jumping, something had to go. So I quit jumping. The other big money saver was zero girlfriends. God they were expensive. Fun or love? Back then easy choice. Fun fun fun.

    My retired mil friends and me have talked of jumping again. These guys are retired SF, hundreds of jumps. Then we sober up, and it’s like we didn’t have that dumb idea to go jump again. My back simply wouldn’t take a hard landing anyway.

    Anyway having dabbed at it, I admire this gent, Biggly


  • Casey Klahn September 29, 2021, 8:18 PM

    Here’s a fun fact, militarily speaking. If you’re a second lieutenant, and your mortar base plate, or your Hummer steering wheel, or your rack of M4 carbines go missing, woe unto you. Woe the fuck unto you. You will endure the shit storms of hell, and say goodbye to beer on payday because your pay is docked like a navy ship of stinky seamen. I knew a general who was paying for a tank he’d misplaced in Vietnam.
    Now. General MacKenzie, whose command in Afghanistan just gave up epic military supply . Oh my mental stability. It’s unimaginable. He owns that shit, legally. He’d better crawl up Biden’s ass so far as humanly possible, and turn out the lights.

    • Snakepit Kansas September 30, 2021, 5:43 AM

      I have a Ben Franklin that says at least some of the bombing materials used to kill the 13 Americans and 100+ Afghans was some of the ordnance of US manufacture, left behind.

      Tambien, over 400,000 fully automatic M4s and various machines guns were left behind and now in use by the Taliban. Not crap-o made AK47s by the Chinese and Romanians. These things will be used against US forces for years to come.

      • Casey Klahn September 30, 2021, 8:04 AM

        Very true, and the M4 requires steady and constant maintenance, but it’s within the capability of many in the Stan. By the time you go up the technology chain, however, you will find that maintaining that military extravaganza will become impossible, and in short order. The smart money is on the rapid black market sale of much that we donated to the enemy.

    This morning, Chroma has decided that I need permission to get onto AD. Every enter keystroke needs advanced access permission.

    Here is my wife’s report from her week and a half trip to Seattle and the Puget Sound area. The inner city of Seattle is a homeless encampment; they drove by Pioneer Square and noted it was a tent camp, and their walk from the SAM to the Farmer’s Market was an intimidating walk through garbage and human detritus and scary people.

    Her friends live in West Seattle, which has an artificial valve that involves closing the bridge except to locals during a few hours at night. The homeless apocalypse is lessened for the wealthier suburbanites. I wonder if Magnolia Bluff has the same setup? My lovely and smart wife noted that the denizens of West Seattle were dancing in the streets because they were told that their burb has, now, an 85% compliance rate with the vax.

    There is a palpable, white-hot death rage in Seattle, against the un-vaxxed. The un-vaxxed are the reason for every Covid death, the lockdowns, the mandates, the economy. Seattlites would just as soon see you murdered and then eviscerated as go out in broad daylight, without THE VAX.

    Never mind that it’s not a vaccine, and the epidemic is not an epidemic. Never mind that immunity is not provided by the vax, nor are the vaccinated incapable of transmitting the disease. The simple question: why do I need the vax? has no answer, in science., nor reason.

    Oh, and before I forget: Trump is a white supremacist. She learned that West of the mountains.

    I don’t need any stinking vaccine. I need a generator, fuel storage, ammo, a garden.

    When I press enter, now, Chrome will make me jump through hoops to post this.
