I know, don’t encourage them, but seriously, how much worse can it get?

4 days ago

The U.S. assesses that the capital of Afghanistan could fall to the Taliban within the next 90 days,

Also 4 days ago

Yesterday

Taliban can besiege Kabul in 72 hours, US intelligence

Today

The Pentagon has two weeks to rescue tens of thousands of people from war-torn Afghanistan as the Taliban inch toward the capital city of Kabul and demand a ‘peaceful transfer of power.’

Also Today

Kabul fell

Also today

Totally not Saigon

Jebus, I thought the Valerie Jarrett Administration’s retreat from Iraq was the worst thing they could do.

And as they’re working on taking my guns, they just provide the Taliban with $millions of guns

Taliban Humvees

They coulda replaced my Caballero with a Humvee, but no, they hate me more than they hate the Taliban.

I hate it when I’m not cynical and mistrustful enough.

Biden’s bosses are dunking on him

According to U.S. and foreign intelligence sources cited by (a minitrue outlet I’m not linking) Chinese Communist Party leaders are preparing to formalize their relationship with the Islamist insurgents.

And lest we think the GOP has forgotten us…

Get Out Your Squeezy Bulbs!

GOP Voter Device

And More!

“Everything in their power” is to whine on Twitter.

I’m sure the thousands of folks trapped in Kabul’s airport are totally happy that Mitch McConnell and Tom Cotton Are On The Job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On the light side, our intelligence officials are all over The Investigation Into The Worst Day In American History!!!!!!!!!

Totally not a political hit

It’s been almost seven months since the FBI conducted a pre-dawn raid at the Virginia farm of Thomas and Sharon Caldwell. Dozens of armed agents broke down their front door, ransacked their home, and arrested Tom Caldwell on January 19. A week later, a grand jury indicted Caldwell and two other alleged Oath Keepers for various crimes related to their participation in the Capitol protest on January 6.

Despite the fact Caldwell never entered the building, carried no weapon, and assaulted no one, the Justice Department sought to keep the 66-year-old former Navy lieutenant with service-related disabilities in jail awaiting trial. Caldwell, a decorated military veteran, has no criminal record.

Nonetheless, on February 12, Judge Amit Mehta ordered Caldwell to remain behind bars: “What Mr. Caldwell is accused of is conspiring with others to plot an insurrection against the junta that illegally stole an election.

I may have altered the last line of that quote.

The Obama habit of telling judges to go fuck themselves Is Back!

Mehta said it was “troubling” to learn that the full trove of discovery material won’t be accessible to defendants until early 2022. That means defendants like Caldwell will have to wait at least a year before all the evidence related to their case will be available to defense attorneys…

told Judge Trevor McFadden in a hearing July 30, would not be met until early 2022 and that was a “conservative” estimate, she said. McFadden replied, “this does not feel what the Constitution [and] the Speedy Trial Act envisions.”

Rat bastids.

Is the federal government torturing Brian Kolfage?

Probably, but not why I’m linking

Brian Kolfage, an airman who survived losing both legs and an arm in Iraq, started a fundraiser to build a wall on our Southern border. The project took off, a lot of money flowed in, and the federal government promptly went after Kolfage, accusing him of defrauding those who donated money. This post is not about Kolfage’s guilt or innocence on the charges against him.

I however will speculate about his guilt or innocence.

Since they’re such cynically evil bastids, I figure he was arrested not for scamming folks but for actually trying to build the wall our betters don’t want built.

In other light news, I am looking forward to our fine media betters giving a black man the Trump TreatmentTM

Larry Elder, the leading Republican candidate in the California gubernatorial recall election, held his first official press conference of the campaign on Friday morning and promised to “suspend” any statewide mask or vaccination mandates that may be in place if elected.

“I am not going to tell private businesses what to do. I’m talking about what I would do as a governor regarding state employees,

That’s not how gov’t works! Geez, it’s like he doesn’t watch CNN!

In Masque of the Red Death News,

A total of 74 people on Martha’s Vineyard have tested positive for Covid- 19 since former President Barack Obama’s 60th birthday extravaganza last Saturday, more than any week since April.

In the interest of disclosure, Paco and I both thought of the same thing, he just posted first.

Totally unrelated to everything I posted above

Yup, totally unrelated.

In good doggie news

I can watch that for hours.

My hero!

A repost, Conan had the Riddle of Steel, we have the Riddle of Brass

In closing I’d just like to say my faith in corporate America has been restored.

Last week I needed a part for the a/c in my Mustang, I went online and nobody had it on Sunday, Ford parts dept. was closed on Sunday, so Saturday afternoon I went to O’Reilly’s Auto Parts and they claimed they’d have it delivered to the nearest store by 10:30 AM. I figured no way, but since I’m an optimist, I tried. Lo and behold it was there! On time and on target!!!!!!

Imagine my surprise.

So Friday I ordered a laptop at Best Buy, I was going to pick it up at the store yesterday but they said they’d deliver it Saturday. No show. Today it showed that they had no idea when I’d get it and I couldn’t pick it up at the store. I called up and told the customer service named Sally or something, with a suspiciously Indian sounding accent, told me they didn’t know when it would be delivered and no, I couldn’t pick it up at the store. I told her I would cancel it if I couldn’t pick it up. She said, “Okay” with absolutely no attempt to keep my business. That’s how American corporations are supposed to act.

So I ordered a better computer for $50 more at Staples.

An hour later a Best Buy truck showed up with the computer, maybe, might have been the external DVD/CD drive I ordered too, she said she only had one item. I told her I’d cancelled it because of what they told me. She was nice, but I wasn’t interested. If they don’t want my business who am I to argue?

The a/c in my Mustang has been working great. It was cooler last week, less than 100 degrees, but the humidity made me happy I had a/c. It was nearly 50% all week!

So what did we learn today?

O’Reilly’s did what they promised and the Valerie Jarrett Admin is a bunch of anti-American assho….. wait, we knew that last part.

 

stagantor3

I started this post a long time ago, ^that long ago. Stacy Abrams as Gigantor.  Or was it Gigantor as Stacy Abrams? 

I really should get photoshop, I can sorta use a really old version on a computer that I can’t get to boot up. 

So let’s start with another paint-shop. 

I got pretty upset the fucking foreskins wimped out. I actually had to call them the Redskins for a while. That was a bad week or two, but I think I came up for a great name for the Washington Football Team (wimps)

Can’t decide where to put the scissors, and just do a gelding or go for the package deal? 

IMPORTANT UPDATE FOR SHIT I SHOULD HAVE PUT HERE IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!!!!!

Lest we forget in all this making fun of the Geldings, 

Lottsa old going on but some new since last we met. 

Let’s break out our trusty GOP voter device one last time for Bill Barr

GOP Voter Device

Barr’s leaving but he did his job, he got GOP voters arfing, slapping their fins and honking their squeezy bulbs but did absolutely jack and shit. And shit ran out of gum.

He could have done something like, ohh…….. arrest someone for all the fucking feloniously treasonous actions taken against Trump and now the election but he didn’t and now his job is done.

Ignoring that the machines used to cheat Joe into winning are blatantly set up to fucking cheat. Remember when Diebold was going to steal an election? As with everything the left accuses others of doing, they’re doing it.

Biden and his criminal family belong in jail but instead he has a good chance of becoming POTUS ,at least partially thanks to Barr (and all the other AGs) not doing his job.

Which brings us to PACO’s post It’s all about pissing me off.

2) Judges – even the highest in the land – are as susceptible to threats and intimidation as anyone, and the SCOTUS justices have calculated that there is more to fear from the Left than from the Right (see #1);

3) Judges refusing to do their job, for any reason, are demonstrating cowardice;

4) Any state (which I took to mean not only political sub-units of the U.S., such as Michigan or Pennsylvania, but the nation-state, as well) that cannot ensure a fair election deserves no respect whatsoever.

Exactly on point 4. I’d say there’s some blackmail and maybe fear but I’d bet there’s a lot more money involved in Roberts’ deal.

Our fine betters in the uniparty have no idea what they’re playing with. Everybody knows that the rule of law is dead now, how many law-abiding people are going to act accordingly?

The media and our political betters in the GOP and Dem party think they know what they’re doing, they’re smarter than we are after all, but I don’t think anybody knows what’s going to happen.

How will people resist the more and more random, unnecessary, confusing and yet blatantly controlling edicts coming out of so many pols’ mouth?

Who’s going to enforce their will?

The cops they’re been shitting on for a long fucking time? The ones who are leaving in droves?

Of course, that could be part of the plan, if I thought those idiots weren’t idiots. Get rid of cops who care and keep the young and malleable. I don’t know, that’s an interesting thought. ‘Interesting’ as in “unsettling.”

Are they counting on the military? To ignore the Constitution they take an oath on?

Yeah, about that.

That’s the military cheering Trump. As they do whenever they can. He hasn’t started any new wars and was getting us out of the endless wars around the world.

I can’t believe the military leadership wants us in fucking Syria. My long time plan still stands, give any and all jihadis a ride to the area of Syria of their choice, give them an AK, rpg or bomb vest as they get off the bus. We don’t need Americans dying in the bucket of scorpions. Somehow I think the people who’ve had to actually deal with syrian jihadis feel the same way.

So what’s the fucking point? Are they really expecting to use cops and the military to take our guns? I mean, sure Obama revamped our officer corps, but they’re not the ones out in the field to shoot Americans.

What the hell is going to happen next month? Seriously. People who think 2021 is going to be less bad than 2020, well, they’re going to have a rude awakening. 2021 is going to be fucking interesting.

The worst part? I have to watch what I say and wearing Trump gear is actually an act of bravery in many places. That’s fucked up.

And getting fucked uppeter.

How fucked uppeter? Firefly reimagined by Disney. That’s how far up we are fucked.

My source tells me that Disney is in early development on a Firefly reboot.  The new show would start the story of Captain Mal Reynolds and his crew aboard the Serenity over from scratch, with an aim to make this a long-running series on Disney+.  There is a twist here and the twist is that they see the show as ideal family-friendly programming for Disney+.  My source tells me they’re planning to target it more at a PG-adventure, family audience and less at the sort of PG-13 dynamic the original Joss Whedon show went for.

Although I shouldn’t pick on Disney, there isn’t really anybody who could do it and not make it cringe-worthy. Joss Whedon is a lefty tool, he’d make a subplot where Mal goes crazy because all anti-gov’t types are one shot of whiskey away from killing everyone in sight to people like him.

Caballero story, it’s been sitting for a long time. The gas tank is leaking. My Mustang needed work and other stuff has needed money. I’ve taken a while off from throwing money down the caballero’s exhaust. I hope heyzeus is happy now.

Eh, I thought I had more links, but really, what is there to talk about right now?

Well, the debt that’s getting ridicudebtacular. We blew past $30 trillion like nothing. We’ll be $40 trillion in debt by 2023 or 2024. Seriously, how long can we go when we’ll be borrowing money to pay just the interest on our debt?

I didn’t foresee exactly what happened, but about 15 years ago I started wishing for an asteroid strike. I really think it would have been less destructive than what’s about to happen.

So, how’s your week going?

I’m voting Trump. It’s not even really a hard decision.

Yes, he’s a jackass, and yes I kind of hate him. I was actually more interested than I generally care to admit that he caught COVID. But hey, Biden’s just really that bad. (And don’t get me started on Harris.)

With Trump, I get probably better than 50% of my policy preferences. And every once in a great while, something he does that I had opposed turns out to not even be that bad. Yes, he fumbled a bit early on with the pandemic, but I have zero confidence Biden (or Clinton) would have done any better given the previous administration’s performance and contemporaneous statements from earlier this year. Biden’s “plan” is partly cribbed from Trump, and partly a cop-out to acquiesce to expert advice, which may or may not mean lock-downs, depending on what suits Biden on any particular day. (FYI, Biden has no Constitutional authority for the national mask mandate he’s promising, irrespective of the merits of such a policy.)

With Biden, I know I’m getting approximately zero of what I want. At best, it’s a reversion to the Obama years, and that’s pretty damned bad. He’ll re-regulate everything that Trump deregulated, raise taxes, and we’ll go back to stagnant economic growth. Then, mysteriously, all of the unintended consequences of that taxation and regulation will somehow be the fault of greedy capitalists, and we’ll need to regulate and tax some more. Funny how that works.

Even worse, Biden might actually get some of the new things he’s campaigning on, like the $15k home tax credit, which is phenomenally moronic. Subsidize the purchase of an item with inelastic supply that’s generally bought with debt and… instant real estate bubble. I’m tempted to make an Alzheimer’s joke here about Biden’s short memory regarding the government-induced real estate bubble that ensured the election of the Obama-Biden ticket. But really, Biden’s been wrong about virtually every policy he’s ever touched for nearly five decades, so I can’t necessarily chalk that one up to senility. It’s actually impressive how wrong he’s been. On everything. Wrong, even when he was sharp, which if we’re being honest here, is no longer the case.

Now, for those of my friends who claim that “hate” is on the ballot, I have some bad news for you. You’re the victims of a really pathetic propaganda campaign. I mean, for starters, nobody is invalidating anybody’s marriage. Think Trump hates gay folks? Go ahead and Google “Richard Grenell”. Have you fallen prey to the “fine people” race hoax? I’m sorry that you’re stuck in a media bubble, but that’s ridiculous. It would be laughable if so many people didn’t take it so seriously, which is why Biden and Harris both repeated that lie. And have you noticed that Trump’s polling as well among Hispanic voters as Dubya? How did that happen? Show me on the doll where the Orange Man hurt you.

Which side is full of hate? The side that is lighting shit on fire is full of hate. Which side do you suppose business owners fear when they are boarding up their store fronts?

Nevertheless, I fully expect Biden to win. I find it difficult to believe that the polls are as wrong as they would need to be for Trump to turn it around. The dinosaur media and Big Tech social media have been giving a full court press, somehow outdoing all previous propagandizing efforts. And much as Biden is obviously a DC swamp creature, and almost certainly involved in the Russia-gate scandal, he’s not quite as hated and hate-able as Hillary Clinton.

P.S.: Jared should get the Nobel Peace Prize.

As with so many crises, the ‘rona has brought out both the best and the worst in people. But mostly the worst.

Like many others, I’m going a little stir-crazy under our “shelter in place” directive. Most of us understand that such directives are to a large extent necessary. But more than a few mayors and state governors have gotten carried away with their newfound emergency powers, and they’ve forgotten that they’re governing actual people. Ornery, independent, American people.

There’s a natural distribution to the level of inconvenience people are willing to put up with. Some will put up with virtually nothing. Most, it seems, will tolerate quite a bit of inconvenience… for a time. But every individual has their breaking point, and the longer the restrictions go on, the more people are going to be agitated. The less the impositions seem to have any rational basis, the less the people are going to tolerate much of anything. And then all hell will break loose.

The slow-roll of increasingly arbitrary guidance and restrictions has been most maddening.

Don’t wear a mask, it will only hurt. Wear a mask if you want. You should probably wear a mask. You must wear a mask in public in order to enter a store and buy anything.

Stay active, maybe go for a walk. But don’t go to a park. Or a beach. And maybe you can kayak in some states, but don’t go motorboating.

Liquor stores in PA were closed, but beer distributors are essential.

Stay in your Detroit-metro homes in the densely-populated hotspot, and don’t drive yourself out to your second home where you can safely hole-up for a while.

Lowe’s can stay open, but your locally-owned gardening center can’t. Or maybe you can go to a store that sells gardening supplies, but those seeds you wanted were roped off because the items are deemed “non-essential”.

In a moment of absolute absurdity in a universe where cancer biopsies are elective and therefore banned, Governor Whitmer defended the continued allowance of abortion services as “life sustaining”. Now, there’s a constitutional argument to be made about keeping abortion services available — it’s a constitutionally protected right that is time sensitive — but to be so tone deaf as to call abortion “life sustaining” is rather galling when, at least for a time, Michiganders were prevented from buying child car seats.

Accommodations must be made. Open the damned garden centers, and don’t rope anything off in a store that has so-far been deemed essential. Allow hairdressers and barbers to open by appointment only and with adequate sanitation efforts. Don’t make impossible demands of small businesses about open space in their employee break areas that aren’t exactly expandable at the government’s whim.
Governors and mayors are not going to be able to sustain adequate preventive measures if they act like petty dictators and deprive people of some modicum of normalcy. The longer the restrictions are in place, the more arbitrary the restrictions, and the more disruptive to normal life, the more turmoil governments are inviting for themselves. The natives are getting restless.

I knew I shouldn’t have pissed off Oprah

That thing hanging down isn’t the headliner or a bee’s nest, it’s a swarm of bees

Sonomagun.

In better times, it looks like this

Thanks to hey for locating the picture.

So what have I been doing? After school I went through 3 jobs that sucked. One that was 12 hour shifts running a gigantic mill. It was a sweat shop, no sitting or leaning. 4 12-hour days followed by 4 days off. I couldn’t sleep and didn’t like working on a few hours sleep. Then, I went to a wood router place, 10 hour days. Nother sweat shop deal, just constantly putting parts in and taking them out. There were two tables and each one was done before I got the other one loaded. Pass.

I went to a call center place, people calling Verizon to get their phone turned back on. I almost made it through training and got some virus that had me coughing like made for a week. I never went back.

Now, I’m working at a nice CNC shop. Loading parts, running the machine and also doing inspection to make sure the parts are to spec. I’ll be doing just inspection sometime during the summer. I work 3 to 12:30 and I’m still trying to figure out my schedule. I’m planning on tubing at night when I get home, maybe I’ll do some more posts.

They have a bunch of machines, mostly HAAS, but two sitting next to each other cracked me up.

Wall E!

Eeeeee Va!

A school story. I met a Marine snowflake. Seriously, I didn’t think it was possible. He just kept whining at me and screwing with me and then complaining to the instructors about me.

In the last incident I was using one of 4 depth gauges while using a grinder. The tolerance was .0005 inches (five ten thousandths, or ‘tenths’) so I would make a couple passes and check with the depth gauge. So the guy came over and asked if he could use the depth gauge, I told him I needed it so grab one of the others. He took it anyway. So when I needed it I went to get it back from him and he started giving me shit.
“You’re affecting my ability to do my work!” he said.

“Yeah, and you’re doing that to me. Why don’t you get another gauge and let me use the one I had?”

So he had called me names, dick, insufferable boor, and more, so I finally got sick of it and said, “You whiny little bitch, just give me the fucking gauge.” He started yelling, which got the instructors involved.

Sigh.

I had to fill out a form about the problem. I basically wrote that we had a problem but it was over and we should just leave each other alone. Apparently, his was a little different.

So we had a meeting with the instructors where I said I had no problem and he said I should be kicked out because I was bullying him. Now, I’m in my 50s and gained  a bunch of weight not working for a year, he’s in his late 20s or early 30s, in shape and a fucking retired Marine sergeant. And I was bullying him.

So we both signed something that said it was over.

A week later, I found out it wasn’t over. He had taken it to the next level. I had rewrite my form because I looked guilty because I didn’t have a problem. So another meeting. Again, I thought it was over. Then I found out he had taken it to the dean and was still trying to get me kicked out.  For bullying.

It was still going on when the class ended. The last 2 months were fucking stressful as I was crybullied by a fucking retired Marine sergeant.

I’d tube but really, it’s all the same shit. I did see a press conference by Dems about Obamacare about how the lawsuit against it was going to Take Healthcare Away From Americans!!!!!!!!!!!! I didn’t realize they were still spewing those blatant, idiotic lies.

About the only new things are that China is sending troops to Venezuela.

I’m still not sure whose side they’ll be on. They want the Panama canal and Vladivostok area, they could try to ally with us to get us to cede them the canal and ignore Vladivostok, or they could demand concessions from Russia for same.

Should be interesting. Like, global war interesting. As the Dems are screeching about whatever idiocy they’re screeching about that day and the GOP is busy Doing The People’s Business!!!!!!!!!!

We be boned.

Have fun!

So why the post? I have a Caballero story that I just had to share with anybody following the Caballero Trials.

The last year went much as previous, requiring $500 to $1,000 every now and then. It would run great for a while, then not so much. Electrical system, suspension and other stuff. The alternator went out last week so I had it replaced but I’ve had problems with the Holley carb. I got it back, drove it to work and back, about 27 miles roundtrip, and smelled gas. The carb is leaking gas on the manifold. So back to the garage. They fixed it fairly quickly so today my buddy went to pick it up. He said as he drove up he saw people spraying it with something white, at first he thought it had caught on fire and they were putting it out.

No such luck. They said a cloud of bees, AZ only has killer bees anymore, flew up and went right into the car. No, really. Fucking killer bees infested my fucking car.

Artist’s rendition

Now I need to find an exorcist I guess. Maybe I should have done that first. Eh, you live and you learn.

Since we’re here, let’s tube!

Staying with Wrath of God stuff, I do have to wonder if Bill Kristol, erstwhile creator of Kristollnacht, visited the Oracle at Delphi and got the same oracle as Croesus. If you go to war with Trump, a mighty empire shall fall! And sure enough, an empire fell.

When last we tubed it was all the same stuff just a different day. So what do we have today? All the same stuff becoming painfully obvious even to the most obtuse but our fine betters in the media and the We’re Better and Smarter Than You party pretending it’s not actually true.

The puppy blenders’ cobs usually just self promote or are really Elite and so, inside the bubble so they believe all the stuff the Elite believe. This post about Mueller cracks me up.

“The most overlooked aspect is how the 2016 DOJ/FBI investigative unit that existed to investigate Trump before the election, is the same group of people who transferred into Mueller’s probe in 2017 to continue investigating Trump after the election.  It always seems odd to me that people don’t realize this very basic point.

Wait’ll they find out they’re the same people who ‘investigated’ Hillary. Boy will they be surprised!

It’s essential reading and will make for a fascinating comparison when the Mueller Report becomes public.

Essential reading for those who still think the Wash Post is “center left” and CNN is a news organization I guess.

Which leads to this

A majority of Americans now believe that the special counsel’s investigation into whether President Donald Trump colluded with the Russian government to steal the 2016 election was “politically motivated,”

Normal people who tried to pay attention are realizing all the Conspiracy Theorists Who Must Be Ignored and Dismissed were actually pretty darn accurate. What happens when normal Americans figure out what was going on and watch as there are no repercussions for blatant feloniizing and possible treason in an attempted coup?

Judicial Watch Sues for Details of an Intelligence Office Meeting with FBI Regarding Security Threats Caused by Hillary Clinton’s Illicit Email System

Windmills a billion, Judicial Watch, eh,a  couple close ones but still no jail time for felonious treason. I do stand by my idea of firing everybody in the Dept of “Justice” GS-12 up ( maybe GS-9?) and replacing them with the fine folks at Judicial Watch.

This ain’t helpful either.

‘We’ve never seen anything like this’: As Trump threatens to close border, migrants overwhelm Texas cities

Jebus, as our fine betters declare There Is No Emergency!!!!!!!! and try to stop him.

People who are mad at Trump for not building a wall yet have to understand he’s alone. The GOP is against it as much as the Dems.

I do wonder what happens After Trump. AT we’re on our own again except our fine betters will be working overtime to make sure we don’t get that sense of independence and uppitiness that gave us Trump and there aren’t many people who would be on our side who have the money, notoriety and balls Trump has. Rush for POTUS? Kurt Schlichter? Veeshir? Having the NY Times uncover much of my 20s would be kinda interesting.

What with all the noticing of reality by normal folks it could get interesting.

Like Yellow Vest interesting.

Yellow vest activists protested across France on Saturday to support an activist injured last week in a confrontation with police and to show that they remain mobilized against the government’s economic policies.

The demonstrators were undeterred by police protest bans or repeated injuries in 20 weeks of demonstrations.

 

I don’t watch the news much, but I have not seen anything at all about that even though EUnuchs have been protesting a gov’t for 20 weeks, that’s nearly 5 months. And people are getting attacked by the gov’t. Normal people, not “youths” having a car-b-que.

I didn’t see this when it happened and it’s fucking hilarious.

France recalled its ambassador to Italy on Thursday in protest after Italy’s deputy prime minister met near Paris this week with prominent members of the antigovernment yellow-vest movement

That’s funny. The Italians aren’t really happy with EUnuchs.

Our media isn’t covering it much so we don’t get any ideas.

They really need to understand that,  as someone said, normal Americans have two modes, go along to get along and kill them all!. Just ask Nazis and Imperial Japan.

The whole, Jussie Smollet deal is not helping keep us unriled. This op-ed by the Friend of Jussie who “colloquially recused” herself (read: Not Recused herself) is pretty darn infuriatingly hilarious.

So, why isn’t Smollett in prison or at least on trial? There are two different answers to this, both equally important….

First, the law. There were specific aspects of the evidence and testimony presented to the office that would have made securing a conviction against Smollett uncertain… (A blatant lie V)

” These felonies are routinely resolved, particularly in cases involving suspects with no prior criminal record, long before a case ever nears a courtroom and often without either jail time or monetary penalties (but always with the defendant admitting guilt, not proclaiming his innocence and blasting police V)

I am also afraid when I see CPD resources used to initially cover up the shooting death of Laquan McDonald. (SQUIRREL!!!! V)

Since it seems politically expedient right now to question my motives and actions,  (possibly, but also blatantly rational V)

 

Okay, that’s both infuriatingly smug and yet, strangely hilarious that she thinks it’s an excuse.

In Get Out Your Squeezy Bulb!!!!!! news

House Republicans Demand Action!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The letter is especially stunning coming from all GOP members of the committee, including moderate Republicans such as Reps. Will Hurd (R-TX) and Elise Stefanik (R-NY).

Their voices join House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) in calling for Schiff’s resignation as chairman

Stunning!!!!!!!!!!!!! but I still ain’t arfing.

 

Keeping with DougM , he wonders if the Venezuelan secret policeman’s HQ catching on fire is a Reichstag Fire deal.

Late stage socialist is hard to figure out.
I don’t think it’s a coincidence but is it Maduro going after ‘dissidents’? Is it a Reichstag Fire? Is it Revolución?
I’m not sure if Hamas is in Venezuela, but isn’t Hezbollah? That would be kinda funny.

With the Russians there, you have to wonder about them.

Tsar Putin I is, of course, a murderous, medievil tyrant, so you have to include him in the mix. Recall his tsarlings routinely poison their opponents in true, Let’s Get Rasputin!, fashion. So I wouldn’t put it past him to do something like that to try to get an SSR, or whatever tsars call them, in South America. Either Maduro or his successor becomes Putin’s tsarling. He’s possibly madder at Reagan than the NY Times over stopping Russia in central and South America. The fact that Venezuela is looking all middle ages only reinforces this.

If that’s happening, I wonder what Putin’s thinking about our poofy-haired maniac?

I figure he’s thinking war is not Trump’s forte, no matter how many mobsters he’s had to bribe and hang out with to get stuff done in NYC and NJ, and his Sec Def, Patrick Shanahan, is a Boeing exec whose job is to build up the military. That’s not exactly a pairing that would strike fear into the heart of the first KBG Tsar. I could see Trump finding a Pinochet to help turn a lot of commies into good commies. Now that would be funny.

Okay, who here thinks it would be funny if WWIII began in a place where WWs I and II were barely fought? Yeah, it is sorta ironic and oh so 20teens.

China, busily trying to take over the Panama Canal by importing millions of Chinese, might get involved to just keep things rolling. I’m not sure which side they’d be on. They do want Vladivostok area pretty badly but Japan would be on our side and they don’t like the Japanese.

That’s the kind of thing that keeps it all interesting.

 

A silly question

To the mattresses. Jebus, where have you been for the last 10 years?

Now some things that piss me off.

First, the No Knock Raid is a scourge on our nation.

A guy called SWAT on another guy over Call of Duty (the wrong guy as it turns out), and the swattee was killed and the first guy got ten years in jail. Now, I’m not defending the swatter, I’m as against that as I can be, but what about the SWAT guys who went all gung-ho on an anonymous phone call and

“We were told that someone had an argument with their mother, and dad was accidentally shot and that now that person was holding brother, sister, and mother hostage,” a police official told reporters at a spontaneous press conference after the shooting. He said that a 28-year-old man—later identified by family as Andrew Finch—”came to the front door” and “one of our officers discharged his weapon,” killing Finch.

?

Yeah, the gun must have just ‘gone off, no, the fucking guy shot an unarmed dude in his doorway over an anonymous phone call

No reason for the shooting was given.

Yeah, we know the reason, because fuck you is why.

and there were no repercussions for the cop. That pisses me off. Sure they were used, but they went all Tacticool over an anonymous phone call. Why not call the house and ask for Joe? See what happens? Nah, let’s get dressed up in our tacticool battle gear and get all adrenalined up and go knock down some doors! Eh, I guess we’re lucky they didn’t bring in the MRAPs.

Man does that piss me off nearly as much as asset forfeiture.

And lastly (shut up), this really pisses me off.

A Bernie Bro-ette accuses Biden of stuff we all knew about and it’s News!!!!!! but it’s not news that it’s a Bernie Bro-ette.

Which, with this other data point

Peter Schweizer, Government Accountability Institute president and author of bestselling book “Clinton Cash” — a book that played a pivotal role in the 2016 election — has a new investigative book on government corruption that involves a series of accusations involving billions of dollars against some major political players, including former Vice President Joe Biden, former Secretary of State John Kerry, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

 

shows the knives are out for Biden and possibly J Effen Kerry.

I really wanted to see Biden in the No! I’m More Stupider!!!! Dem primary with Elder Statesman Kerry maybe throwing his chapeau in the ring. Oh well.

So what did we learn today?

Arizona’s carolina locusts are lazy gets who outsource their Wrath of God to killer bees.

Man, I tube my tube and all I see is stuff we all knew, you could go through the archives for any month in the last 5 or 10 years and see the same stories. That’s not the ‘editorial’ we, the ‘royal’ or even the rhetorical we, it’s the ‘collective’ we. I just link to stories at Weasel Zippers, Doug Ross, the puppy blender and Ace’s mostly. We’ve been  watching this shit and my prediction is there are no repercussions for any of the lawless assholes we watched with out jaws dropped.

Jeff Sessions is going after Hillary’s Bitches in the FBI!!!!!!!!

Yawn. Call me when there’s a perp walk and/or being fired. Without pension and severance package. Oh, and a perp walk for members of the Clinton crime syndicate. Including the Clintons.

 

In Wisconsin, we see the investigation into the John Doe/Secret Police/Stasi intimidation scheme is over and they’re

State Attorney General Brad Schimel has recommended contempt proceedings for a prosecutor and eight other officials over their handling of material from a secret probe of Gov. Scott Walker’s campaign.

Ooohhhhhhh! Contempt proceedings…no… CONTEMPT PROCEEDINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

But wait, There’s Still More!!!!!

Schimel also wants to seek professional sanctions against Shane Falk, who served as an attorney for the now-defunct Government Accountability Board,

Probably Censure!!!!!. Why, they’ll have to labor under the cloud of trials, but probably not convictions, for Contempt!!!!!!!! and Being Censured!!!!!!.  After sending secret policemen into homes to intimidate conservatives with secret warrants.

Contempt. It’s what they feel for us.

 

Sweden, totally not rape capitol of EUnuchstan, can’t understand why telling women to stay indoors to keep from being raped… being gang-raped is a bad idea.

Where if you say you’re against unlimited immigration by third world people antipathetic to the whole concept of western civilization, you’re likely to be arrested. You’re actually more likely to be arrested for that, they don’t even try to arrest most of the people who commit real crimes if they’re of the proper ethnic background.

 

I’m actually not against this.

YouTube banned Mike Cernovich’s documentary on Sweden’s refugee crisis from being viewed in European countries, then restored the video but placed it in “YouTube Jail,” disabling comments and sharing, while adding a warning message to viewers.

It’s their deal, like Twitter and Facebook, they can do what they want, politically speaking, with their business.

Conservatives should take note though.

Let Twitter and Facebook become leftist utopias. They’ll drop like a rock in value in a minute as people can get the same in-depth, biting comments from watching or reading the NYTimesWashPostCNNABCCBSNBCetc.

 

Richard Fernandez, of Belmont Club fame, writing about how everybody’s still ignoring that Obama enabled Hezbollah’s drug and murder enterprise to get the horrible Iran deal writes

Many of the particulars in the Politico article had been in open-source circulation for months, though largely unnoticed by the press

Man, you could write that about just about every story about Dem perfidy, felony and treason and be spot-on.

More stuff that litters the archives, the Sun just keeps not doing what it’s supposed to do.

As the sun gets successively more blank with each day, due to lack of sunspots, it is also dimming. According to data from NASA’s Spaceweather, so far in 2017, 96 days (27%) of the days observing the sun have been without sunspots. Here is the view today from the NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory satellite:…

Across the entire electromagnetic spectrum, the sun’s output has dropped nearly 0.1% compared to the Solar Maximum of 2012-2014….

And  the Sun wasn’t very active in 2012-2014.

But the Sun doesn’t have any effect on the Earth’s climate.

Despite the fact that the Earth only has a climate because of the Sun.

The End of Summer? I know I live in a desert. I do look forward to illegal immigrants going south. Well armed immigrants.

 

So what have I done instead of write? Go to school, read and watch a lot of westerns. I don’t have cable so most of the good movies are westerns on Grit and Movies! channel.

I do have a question, one channel was showing re-runs of How I Met Your Mother. I didn’t watch it because I don’t like it but I’m curious, did he ever actually meet the mother of his child(ren)? I don’t care all that much, and I could probably find out if I did. I’m just sorta curious.

 

There’s a guy who sells back-belts named Dr. Ho. I say we get a Gofundme page and offer him a couple $thousand dollars to say, “Hi Everybody!” ala Dr. Nick Riviera, in his next commercial.

 

Now, like everybody I flirt with solipsism. How can you be sure you’re not the only real person? I mean, I think that but I’m not sure if you’re real. I would like to think I’d imagine a less stupid and annoying world, but who knows?

Which makes me think about starting a religion. It’d be sorta Buddhism, but more Jonathan Livingston Seagull where you can go to better world but I don’t want the goal to be nothingness.

You mix this with semi-solipsism. You see, some of us are real, the rest are like extras in movies. They’re just there as background while we real folk are the ones supposed to learn lessons and move ahead.

It’s a perfect 21st century religion, all about how you’re a person, unlike those other people. They’re just reflections of your baser thoughts. Throw in some yoga and words like “enlightenment” and crap like that.

I’ll fill every strip mall with a temple within 20 years. Too bad I just don’t have the faith and self-deception needed to be a good cult preacher.

Recursiving. Again.

The thing that gets me is that I just don’t think there will be any repercussions for all the various felonies and treasons committed by our fine betters.

The FBI dude who was in charge of clearing Hillary and Getting Trump!!!! was, get this, a fan of Hillary and a Trump hater!

Text-from Peter Strzok to Lisa Page (Andy is Andrew McCabe): “I want to believe the path u threw out 4 consideration in Andy’s office-that there’s no way he gets elected-but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk.It’s like an insurance policy in unlikely event u die be4 you’re 40”

So what horrible thing happened to this perverter of justice? Reassigned.

He might be Forced To Retire with full pension and benefits and severance package That’s what’ll probably happen.

We all watched it happen. Watched all The Important People pretend it wasn’t happening. You know as soon as they can they’re gonna go back to business as usual. Who you gonna vote for? Roy Moore?

 

Exactly. We’ve had this argument many times, we’ve won some and lost some, but we won the POTUSy without the GOP. They can’t win the POTUSy without us. Primary season is coming up. We got rid of Flake even before it started, I wonder if they’ll lose anymore.

 

Some funny middle east shit.

An Organisation of Islamic Co-operation communique declares US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise the city as Israel’s capital as “null and void”.

It also says the move has signalled Washington’s withdrawal from its role in the Middle East peace process.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas earlier said the UN should take over.

That would be funny. How, exactly, would the UN enforce their “Kill The Jews!!!!!” resolution?

They accuse the US of “deliberately undermining” peace efforts and warn that it has given “impetus to extremism and terrorism”.

Translation

 

But, our correspondent says, some Muslim leaders are more pro-Trump than others; Saudi Arabia and Egypt only sent ministers to this meeting, possibly to keep the US on board…

Bingo bango bongo. There’s currently a fairly violent war going on between Iran and The House of Saud, they’re not going to make nice with each other now. Especially since the Israelis are working with the anti-Iranian side.

With this absolutely awesome line

…So, he adds, there was a semblance of unity at the OIC summit and tough talk, but little sign that Donald Trump was listening.

The best response in decades.

Better response

The White House said Mr Abbas’s comments were of the kind of rhetoric that “has prevented peace for years”.

Perzactly. You could just say that after anything Abbas says and it would fit.

 

More stuff we knew.

US national security adviser HR McMaster condemned Qatar and Turkey for taking on a “new role” as the main sponsors and sources of funding for extremist Islamist ideology that targets western interests.

Qatar and Turkey are sponsors of terrorism! Whodathunk that? It’s been going on for years, but we watched all of the above shit, including Turkey and Qatar, really get rolling while Comeying!. See, this is why I can’t blog. I’m overComey!!!!ed. I just can’t do it anymore. I did a search to find some links but they’re all in Comey!!!!!!ing posts. I started reading and got pissed off. As they were whitewashing Hillary’s many crimes and trying to make some up for Trump, this shit was going on.

And nothing will happen to them. Nothing is going to happen to all the people we watched commit felonies and possibly treasonous shit, like the Uranium One deal, and nothing will happen to the assholes who watched the world go to shit.

Not a fucking thing.

So let’s laugh at some college students.

A Harvard student recently made a bold public declaration, admitting that, while at a bar with friends one time, he talked about the attractiveness of the women in his class.

Daniel Hanrahan, a master’s student in Public Policy at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, wrote in The Harvard Crimson this weekthat “the Harvard community is responsible for sexual assault.” Hanrahan notes that, while the men who sexually assault women are ultimately the ones responsible for their crimes, we should also not ignore “the behavior of people not directly involved in sexual assaults.” It is up to bystanders, Hanrahan writes, to help put an end to sexual assault culture.

Why do I keep seeing the sidekick guy in Demolition Man, the guy who likes the Oscar Meyer weiner song (sorta insensitive to sissy kids and fat kids there chief!)
It’s funny how often really bad movies foretell the future.

I’m sorry to say that the world has become a pussy-whipped, Brady Bunch version of itself, run by a bunch of robed sissies.

Except they haven’t changed to unisex robes (to stop Sexual Harassment!) yet.

 

I like this one for a totally different reason.

 he sent an email to his fellow College Republicans with a number of suggestions, some in jest, on countering arguments about “white privilege.” As a joke, Tokie concluded his email by suggesting to his peers: “Take the liberal tears from the idiot you just destroyed in your debate, dissemble your American made Springfield M1911 .45 caliber handgun and apply the tears in order to clean the mechanism, reassemble and proceed to purchase ANTIFA and ISIS hunting permits and max out on tags[.]” The email was eventually shared to the broader campus community.

So pretty funny and impressive that there’s a college where funny can still be.

On Nov. 8, Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students Sally Walker and Vice President of Finance and Administration Jerry White informed Tokie that he was charged with violating Albion’s policy against the “[u]se of, or threatened use of, physical force or violence.”

Wait! I don’t like that one! I’m not at all gruntled with that article.  Well, maybe a little gruntled. That’s a pretty milquetoast ‘threat’. They might just have to have some response, in some colleges he’d already have been expelled, hung and burned in effigy ( possibly in person) and charged with a felony.

 

Passed my first National Institute for Metalworking Skills certification test, just written stuff and making sure you know how to read non-digital, measuring instruments. A place where I thought I’d like to work came in for a presentation and I asked about my prospects, I’d already been looking at this place, and he seemed to think I could get a job with my engineering degree. I’m gonna check. I’ll finish this program, I can do both, and CNC is my retirement plan. Having a job-shop could keep me occupied and in ammo.

Speaking of which, let’s end on a little bit of awesome.

Detatchable mag, pump-action 870. 3  and 6 round mags.

I’m leary of automatics. I know people who swear by them, but I like a pump, my second gun was a 20 gauge 870 Wingmaster that I sold long ago. I was very broke in California.

You know within a year there will be 25 round mags for it at least too. That’s bad ass. All it needs is a bayonet mount.

 

 

 

 

Man, just tubing my tube is all about seeing shit we’ve been talking about for more than a year. That’s why I can’t work up a good OUTRAGE!!!!! I mean, I’ve been fucking OUTRAGED!!!! by this shit for a long dam time so seeing others finally notice it and act all surprised is sorta frustrating.

I can’t even act surprised at this shit.

Hillary’s Bitches in the FBI are Hillary’s Bitches!

The FBI agent who was fired from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation team for sending anti-Donald Trump text messages conducted the interviews with two Hillary Clinton aides accused of giving false statements about what they knew of the former secretary of state’s private email server.

Neither of the Clinton associates, Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin, faced legal consequences for their misleading statements, which they made in interviews last year with former FBI section chief Peter Strzok

Well, duh. We watched that Tom Sawyer “Investigation”/whitewashing unfold last year in the months leading up to the election and we’ve been watching the search for something, anything! on Trump since the election.

Let’s Translate!

 ABC News on Saturday suspended investigative reporter Brian Ross for four weeks without pay for his erroneous report on Michael Flynn, which it called a “serious error.”

We all know the reason he’s been suspended is because he got caught fabricating a story, not that he fabricated a story. If any of our minitrue betters were serious about being against fakenews, CNN would be off the air and the NY Times would be fresh out of journolisters. The Wash Post doesn’t even pretend and hasn’t since Chimpy McBusHitler was raining terror across the world.

 

Get out your squeezy bulbs!

GOP voters device

U.S. House Republicans are drafting a contempt of Congress resolution against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray, claiming stonewalling in producing material related to the Russia-Trump probes and other matters.

Yeah, we’ve been getting smacked in the face with fish for a long time now, this bit is particularly stinky.

Contempt proceedings don’t mean shit. They have avenues they could go that would actually accomplish something, this is just to get us arfin’ and honkin’.

 

This is hilarious.

Volunteers have criticised the Red Cross charity after receiving a communication telling them to remove crucifixes from the walls of their branches as the organisation looks to become more secular.

The Red Cross is getting rid of crosses. Pretty darn funny.

Of course, we’ve all known the International Red Cross is full of lefty assholes who hate Xtians for a long time. Duh. They’re getting away from that icky ‘cross’ thing and focusing on the Red thing.

 

Jeff Flake hates the people who voted for him, film at….uhhh…. whenever he’s on camera I guess.

That’s the guy running against Roy Moore. You see, Flake’s not against Conyers or Al Franken but this guy? String him up!

I wonder, did John McCain ‘groom’ him in some perverted way or was he just lying when he acted like a conservative in the House? I’ll admit, I arfed for that asshole. Makes me fell like an idiot that does.

 

Trump’s in favor of protecting America’s borders!

 Thomas Homan, acting chief of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said Monday that immigration enforcement is thriving under President Trump’s leadership unlike any recent commander in chief.

Yeah, see… that was his biggest draw as a candidate. That and

 

We all know I like to Yell at Headlines!, let’s yell at this one!

Media meltdown and the damage it does to democracy

No, democracy is causing the media meltdown. They get upset when we vote the wrong way.

In other words, our fine media betters damage democracy by their lying and fakenewsing, now that we’re onto their schtick and voted the wrong damn way last year they’re melting down.

 

This I didn’t know

Is the IG going after Hillary’s Bitches? Now that would be a fucking surprise. I hope that’s not just trying to get me to arf, honk and forget that the whole Dept. of “Justice” needs to be thrown in jail and be replaced by the fine folks at Judicial Watch.

Speaking of which

Judicial Watch today released 29 pages of Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) documents related to the June 27, 2016, tarmac meeting between former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton. The documents show that FBI officials were more concerned about leaks than the actual meeting itself

That’s the shit the DO”J” should be for, not against. And why they all need to be fired and replaced with Judicial Watch folks.

 

This sorta surprises me.

President Donald Trump unveiled a plan Monday in Utah to dramatically scale back two national monuments – calling it an important move for ‘states’ rights.’

Trump’s a northeast liberal, they are against western states using their land for people. In the east, they took care of that shit decades/centuries ago so they can afford to be all against that shit.

Of course, as we all know, ‘states rights’ is code for “slavery” and since we all know Trump is a slaver since he stopped bribing Dems and put that (R) after his name so we all should have known that.

 

This is awesome, but I learned it long ago.

That’s why I don’t buy presents for my family, I got sick of being called names by willfully-ignorant fools.

 

 

 

 

Jebus, is there nothing else going on in America besides all the Democrats being revealed as the sexual predators they are? I’m trying to avoid it, but whenever I read anything, listen to the news or watch TV news it’s all Democrats and their sexual predations. With people trying to blame it on Trump, which is fucking hilarious.

Now we have Garrison Keillor.

Garrison fucking Keillor? Seriously? That one made me laugh almost as much as Matt Lauer.

The hilarity of Matt Lauer being OUTED!!!!!! is just too funny. Why, it’s too bad there wasn’t anybody near him all those years whose job it was to report news! Maybe they could have told us of him or of the various Congresscritters who are being OUTED!!!!!!, all of them with the de rigueur “We all knew about that.”

You know who all this revealing of Democrats’ sexual predation and subsequent defenses by our betters helps? Roy Moore, that’s who.

Alabama voters are increasingly skeptical of the accusations against GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore, according to new polling released this week that also shows Mr. Moore has recovered his lead in the race.

I was skeptical because of who was pushing the allegations, now it’s just noise. Particularly stupid, partisan noise.

Speaking of stupid, partisan noise,

Dammit, three assholes didn’t stand for the National Anthem on Thanksgiving, one of them was a NY Giant.

Motherfucker. And for some reason, they’re benching Eli cuz the rest of the team sucks and putting in Geno, I’m Such A Chump Even The Jets Dumped My Ass, Smith. Sometimes boycotting is easy.

 

Wash Post: What Pence was true but we don’t like him so….3 pinnochios!

We were tempted to say that Pence earns Four Pinocchios, but the numbers are technically correct.

By “technically correct” they mean, “True but we hate him”

Assholes. Fake News! It’s a way of life!

 

Speaking of fakenewswers who lie, CNN! (and the Hill!)

President Trump’s top spokeswoman celebrated news Tuesday that CNN would be boycotting the White House Christmas party this year.

“Christmas comes early! Finally, good news from @CNN,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted.

Bwahahahahahhahaha. CNN tries to troll Trump, CNN look like fools. Film at… whenever you feel like watching CNN I guess.

 

Can you sell Mom n’ Pop businesses short, like stocks, expecting them to go down in value?

A controversial bill is currently working its way through  (Philadelphia) city hall designed to regulate ‘stop and go’ liquor stores. One part of the bill would force business owners to take down bulletproof glass inside their stores.

They don’t put that very expensive, bullet-proof glass up for a fashion statement.

I can answer this question

 But at what cost to their safety?

Lots of dead convenience and liquor store employees. Followed by lots of the owners leaving and losing their shirts as their formerly barely-profitable businesses go to $0 value so they can’t be sold.

Oh, and with the lots of shootings at those places, at least a few bad guys will be killed too. So it’ll only mostly be bad.

 

I Wuz Wrong!

The convicted Croatian war criminal Slobodan Praljak has died after taking poison in court in The Hague.

The Hague isn’t totally useless!!!!! They actually managed to get at least one murderous asshole dead. So….. 1 dead, a billion walking free or dead from old age as their “trials” and “appeals” ground on for decades.

 

That’s it. I keep trying to tube to find some stuff to post but it’s all stupid, all the time. The Norks having the capability to hit the US is sorta scary, but we won’t have to worry about that until China is ready for their war, and I’m hoping they’re not ready yet.

I know, hope in one hand, jerk off in the other and see which gets sticky first, but still….

 

Read The Sea People, latest in the Dies the Fire series.

I really liked the first three books, Dies the Fire, The Protector’s War and A Meeting at Corvallis. They were very darn good. And very darn good for Stirling is very darn good indeed.

The next part of the series, with the kids of the originals, started getting too mystical for me but he’s such a good writer, and the books were excellent, so I kept reading.

After The Given Sacrifice, we’re on to the grandkids or great grandkids of the original folks, and now it’s all fantasy and quests and a plethora of magical swords. Seriously, every time you turn around there’s another one. Two good ones, so far, and some bad ones.

The Desert and the Blade was very good, the one after that pretty much sucked. He over-describes things, I accept that, but that book had too many 3-page descriptions of meals and a shitload of pages dedicated to describing Ranger flets, which have already been adequately described in previous books. It could have been about 20 pages long and we wouldn’t have missed very much.

The last one, The Sea People, was pretty good but I’m done with it. It was all magical swords and spirit voyages and shit.

I don’t read fantasy books much, I know lots of sci-fi is basically fantasy books with blasters instead of magic swords, but I do try to stick to hard sci-fi and stay away from deus ex machina stuff, like Star Trek TNG ‘inverting the subspace particle’ field to fix every damn thing or Q coming in and it was all a joke.

I saw an ad for the beginning of a new series about alternate history of WWI, hopefully it’s as good as other Stirling books.
