True but Forbidden #39: Issues and Items from a Blissfully Slow News Week

It’s a femboy thing. You wouldn’t understand (And you don’t want to). The Step Mullet Is the Next Big Hair Trend

 CNN reported, “Websites that peddle disinformation make millions of dollars in ads, new study finds.” This is not journalism.This is CNN.

Mark Young tweeted to Elizabeth Warren, “You are the first person in history that actually flunked their DNA test.”

One woman in her 80s — I’ll call her Svetlana — was heartbroken. The fear and horror was evident in her eyes as she talked about her experiences as a young person growing up in the USSR. “I left the Soviet Union to escape communism, socialism, Marxism — whatever you want to call it,” she recalled. “America was and still is the only place in the world you are truly free, and you are losing it. Now the evil is coming here; it is all around us, especially where I live in California. These people are ignorant, they have no historical knowledge, and they are very dangerous. The ideology is seductive to America’s naive youth and always ends up with people dead.”

MICHAEL YON EMAILS FROM HONG KONG:  Yesterday the protest was massive. I have not even slept yet. Estimated 1.7m people. Crowds are notoriously difficult to estimate, but I will confirm it was absolutely massive, stretching for miles in pouring rain. Massive. Hong Kong is China’s brain tumor. Do nothing: the tumor grows. Operate: the procedure could kill the communist party. This is very serious, Gentlemen. Do not underestimate what is happening here.

One more bullet for your anti-electric car position. For obvious reasons, electric cars make more sense in urban than rural settings. However, urban settings are overwhelmed with apartment buildings. And on those streets every night, every parking space is full. So are those electric car owners going to run extension cords out to the street? Does anyone think the apartment owner is going to add interior charging stations = $$$$. And even if a few are added it is first come, first serve – and those there first are unlikely to move their cars once charged. This limitation is enormous and hard to imagine being overcome. Thanks for your excellent presentations.

GOT MILK? Milk drinking = white supremacy, PETA announces If you’re wondering if you’re a racist – and who doesn’t these days? – there is now a simple test. Go to your refrigerator and see if you have any milk. If you do, report immediately to the nearest Ku Klux Klan meeting for induction. Yes, it seems that cow’s milk is a symbol used for white supremacy. At least it seems that way to the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

With the Old Breed Senator Tom Cotton ends his inspiring, much-needed book with a story from Sergeant Major of the Army Dan Dailey, who talked to a foreign military leader visiting Arlington. The guest, after he had observed The Old Guard, sighed, “[N]ow I know why your soldiers fight so hard. You take better care of your dead than we do our living.”

    That last bit is really something. I am awaiting the arrival of our mail carrier who will be delivering the Next Level Training SRI Lasar training pistol today that I won. So take that, Roger, Steve, Adam, et al.

    The hand is on the switch already. I’m sure that the lefties will come to their senses any day now.

    According to the anti-gun owners the solution is to shoot the gun owners.
    I see this sort of thing over and over.
    If you ask them what they are going to shoot the gun owners with it’s like jamming a tankers bar in their gear box. They grind to a halt then explode. They could be dangerous people. Might I suggest you start carrying a fixed blade at least 4″ long when you have to congregate? And a Buck 112 in your ass pocket.

    The “Communists then” photo actually depicts a Polish partisan soldier who fought both Soviet Reds AND Nazi Germans. But the point is valid — I’m sure the hard-assed Red Army troops who dug in and fought tooth and nail during Operation Barbarossa would PUKE BLOOD at the sight of today’s infantile “Communists.”

    Ghost, Can you elaborate on the “Buck 112” so I can be sure to get one/it? Never heard of it. The blade I got covered. Enlighten this GenXer if you will on the last part.

    Dan Dailey was a Marine..Cotton just lost my potential vote in 2024.

    Filed under: PETA, milk & white supremacy: Our neighbor’s daughter was infected with a tapeworm during her visit to Điện Biên Phủ. As a committed vegan, she’s decided to allow it to reside in her intestines until it chooses to leave. She calls it Bernice.

    That “Now” Communist looks like a pregnant transman.

    @Ambiguos Frog:

    A Buck 112 is a folding lockblade knife made by Buck. Very handy for…things.

    I’ve trained my two monkeys & wife to be proficient with firearms as well as 3X/week Jiujitsu. I’ve told my kids to never threaten violence but when it is time to fight, recognize it and engage with no warning. Those jomos talk and talk. They want someone ELSE to come take our guns. They have no intention of doing it themselves, semi-wisely.
    I don’t see a coming 2nd civil war. Worst case I foresee mass non-compliance with gun registration and gun buy-backs if the Socialist Dems take over. The average cop isn’t going to sign up for overtime to bust down doors of known gun toting rednecks. Some states and cities currently ignore marijuana and immigration laws. Don’t think that won’t work the other way when conservatives are targeted with BS laws.
    If it gets too hairy, remember that those with the guns make the rules.

    The Buck 112 Ranger is your “life knife”.
    Where da story iz ghost?
    (Buck link at the bottom)

    The first I ever heard of Buck knives was in Oct 74 not too long after I stepped off the jet to Germany. I had just skarfed down an enormous Jagerschnitzel at the Rod and Gun Club on post at Wildflecken and sauntered into the show room to exercise my ocular glands. About halfway into it I spotted that Buck 112 Ranger sitting over there across the room and I was instantly smitten. I have to have it. NOW. The brass. The walnut. The style. Whoa. ALL knives should be modeled off the 112. After a little more ogling that buck was mine for ever more, as Ted would say. (It’ll come to ya.) I carried that Buck in my right ass pocket next to my wallet every day until about mid June 1980.

    I was in a story for another time, and hitchhiking from Portland Or to Los Angeles CA along I-5 and one night while sleeping in the median strip that Buck slipped out of my pocket. I didn’t realize it til the next day and 200 miles further down the road. I was enormously irritated. Yes, I contemplated going back. But I didn’t.

    A couple months later I was settled in LA, working for Martin Marietta making more money than a non-criminal deserves and I bought another Buck 112. I carried that Buck in my right ass pocket until about 2 years ago when I stupidly snapped the tip off doing something I shouldn’t have. Again, I was very irritated at myself. I did some researching (thank you internet) and found out all Buck knives have a lifetime warranty and that for the price of shipping both ways ($10) Buck will fix me up. I sent that broken 112 off and waited. And waited some more. It took about 6 weeks but the big day finally arrived and I was waiting at the mailbox. “Here it comes!”

    I brought the package inside and opened it and I almost fainted. My old beat up, used to death for 37 years Buck with a broken point was gone forever. In it’s place was what appeared to be an all brand new Buck 112, with the box and bling. I couldn’t believe it. For once something worked out in my favor. But then I paused and the cynical me came to the fore front. Anytime something good happens to me shortly after something horrifying happens. Gotta keep that scale of life balanced doncha know? Well, I don’t remember if something bad happened or not, but that 112 is laying right here on my desk right now, all shiny and brand new lookin’ and every time I leave the compound it is installed right where it belongs. In my right ass pocket.

    I rarely use that Buck now, just for opening envelopes and such. I learned my lesson. It cost me 2 Bucks to have the Buck I have now, and I intend to make it last. My wife will give it to our kid when I pass, with all the other stuff in the grab bag. Until then, the Buck is committed to light duty but rest assured, if the right situation occurs I will def open an antifa from asshole to appetite quicktime, just as the Buck 112 was designed to do.

    Ghost always has the best stories…
    My Dad gave me his life-long Bokker pocket knife when I was a teen, and as a young adult I lost it. I’ve regretted that forever. I still think about it from time to time. I’d give $500 to get that same little two blade pocket knife back…
    I’ve carried a Spiderco Jess Horn for two decades then lost it bow hunting last year. DOH! It had been all over the world on travels with me. Hunting in TX, OK, KS, CO, WV and South Africa. Skinned and gutted a large pile of deer, a zebra, elk, wild boar and more. Carried it somewhat discretely for two years (also while diving) living in the Philippines. I replaced the lost Spiderco with a Bokker automatic knife with half serrated blade.

    As a youth, most every boy in grade school had a pocket knife. We’ve turned our youth into pussies.

  • ambiguousfrog August 19, 2019, 6:56 PM

    Ah yes. I know Buck (had a small one as a kid). Didn’t know “Buck 112”. Had a Schrade Scrimshaw too. Gave that one to my kid. He knows more about knives than I do. I’m glad to say.
    Made in the USA still I see.

  • Terry August 19, 2019, 8:59 PM

    If you cannot carry a gun you absolutely must carry a knife. This applies to everyone. The creeps are all armed with something.

    My Grandfather gave all six of his grandsons a Case pocket knife at eight years of age. I still have it. It has only two blades. My sons gave me a Swiss Army knife with two blades, and some very handy fold out tools. I have had it in my pocket for over thirty-five years.

    I also have carried a serious self defense blade since 1966. The first one was given to me by one of my younger brothers after he returned from Vietnam. It was tested and proven in tunnels he crawled in looking for who knows what. I asked what the 12 little notches were. He said 13 was an unlucky number. I no longer carry that blade (4 inch). It does not have a lock open feature. I currently carry a Schrade 3-3/4″ folder that locks open. This is much safer for the operator. It is in a leather pouch on my belt. I never leave the house without the Swiss Army and the Schrade.

    I have other blades as well. The best defense is a gun. Rifle first. Hand gun second. The bad guys have them but do not know how to operate them. This is a good thing. “Yes officer, he pulled that gun on me. I had to defend myself.”

    Get training on blades. Hoodlums are self trained on blades and quite dangerous. Stay back away from anyone with a knife or firearm. A defensive blade should be at least 3-1/2 inches long and the point sharpened like a razor for penetrating.

    The good old USA is becoming a dangerous place to live. I avoid crowds if at all possible. Something to remember is the leftists receive free lawyers help now as they did in the fifties-seventies.

    The Step Mullet, what fresh hell is this;looks like they need the stomp on the balls Mallet.

  • Jack August 20, 2019, 5:19 AM

    I carried Bucks for years and I still have a few that remind me of my yoot. After I made a little money I began buying from Bob Dozier and from his son-in-law Dan Crotts and I’m always wearing one or the other unless I’m one of my Kimbers. Check them out if you wish. They ride easily along your waist band and they will come out of their Kydex sheaths in a millisecond if needed.

    Buck Knives for American Lives.
    Buy it once, use it forever.
    Made in America and used around the world.
    Styles come and go but tradition lasts.
    Buck Ranger 112, the heirloom knife that stays in the family.

    Trump should promote American made companies to make 30 second mainstream TV commercials lamenting traditional American values. The Buck commercial would highlight the Ranger 112 being used in up close video by dirty hands in all sorts of work and hobby scenarios with streaming Americano backdrops like soldiers, farmers, flags, old trucks, rifles, machinery. Evoke the deeply held emotional values of the traditional mindset of country, home, family, and work. Run the commercials once every hour on all TV channels from now on, like public service announcements. Strike hard, strike deep. MAGA!
