  • TikTok users are retarded and so is the tech press that reports on the issue. (Tech Crunch)
    Still, TikTokers point to the distinction between sharing data with a private Chinese company and the Chinese government.
    None. The difference is none. All Chinese internet companies are entirely under the thumb of the Chinese intelligence agencies.
    For its part, TikTok has tried to appease U.S. officials with a plan called Project Texas, a $1.5 billion undertaking that will move U.S. users' data to Oracle servers.
    Which simply proves that TikTok is acting in bad faith. The company has claimed for years that US user data is held separate from and inaccessible to Chinese operations, but all of TikTok's internal tools have backdoors to allow China to spy on foreign users. (BuzzFeed)

The Saturday Night Joke


Brenda and Steve took their six-year-old son to the doctor. With some hesitation, they explained that although their little angel appeared to be in good health, they were concerned about his rather small penis.

After examining the child, the doctor confidently declared, “Just feed him pancakes. That should solve the problem.”

The next morning when the boy arrived at breakfast, there was a large stack of warm pancakes in the middle of the table.

“Gee, Mom,” he exclaimed, “for me?”

“Just take two,” Brenda replied. “The rest are for your father.” (H/T TNDeplorable)

Saturday Evening Movie Thread [moviegique]: A Man For All Seasons

—Open Blogger

The extended award season, finally receding into the future haze of "What won for best song in 2023?"*, always tends to pique me: What is great? From school, you'd get the idea that "great" is what a professor dozens or hundreds of years later thinks about your work. And however vile academics are today (and however mediocre they've historically been), we have both Shakespeare and Bach today because some academic recovered them from fickle pop culture. If someone can dig up your work hundreds of years later and people can still embrace the aesthetic, that's a measure of greatness.

However, I do think there's great "in the moment". Tons of, e.g., '80s culture was the right mood (as the kids say) for the time. This is true of every era, of course, and what's remarkable about the '80s is that a lot of the stuff dismissed as ephemera at the time still holds up today—in contrast to the late '60s/early '70s, which was absolutely convinced of its own immortality and is the very definition of "cringe" today.

From a narrative standpoint, however, a great story (by my lights) is the one that tells the tale that truly is eternal which brings us to A Man For All Seasons, 1966's Best Picture Oscar winner.

Weekend Hobby, Crafts and Bodging Thread

—J.J. Sefton

Greetings gang. Well it's spring on the calendar but old man winter just decided to dump about eight inches of snow on us here in the midwest. It's a great excuse to stay indoors and get creative.

NOTE: This thread is limited to discussion of hobby-related topics. Please leave other topics, especially politics, at the door.

I'll start with some sad news for model railroad enthusiasts. Malcom Furlow, whose name is instantly recognizable to anyone who's been in the hobby for any length of time, passed away earlier this month at the age of 77. Click here for a full obituary.

For most of the 80s, his byline was a mainstay in the modeling press for his wonderfully imaginative narrow gauge modeling as depicted on his HOn3 Denver & Rio Chama Western. Probably the most popular of his numerous articles were two start-to-finish layout construction series: the San Juan Central and Carbondale Central, both appearing in Model Railroader in 1984 and 1988 respectively.

Yet, as quickly as he burst onto the modeling scene, he all but disappeared to devote his time building a reputation as a fine artist, becoming a renowned painter of vivid, semi-abstract works depicting mostly southwestern themes. I was a big fan of his talents and mostly his wonderful sense of imagination that gave his models character. More than that, Malcolm Furlow had the ability to transform a simple train set on a sheet of plywood into a true miniature world.

Here he is in his heyday. RIP and thanks for the memories.

Gardening, Puttering and Adventure Thread, March 25



Happy Spring, everybody! I hear that there is still some cold weather in parts of the country. Around here, in Central California, we have some road closures from flooding, but it's not raining today!

Sometimes someone in The Horde has some excitement in the yard or garden. Usually not this much excitement:

Critical Consciousness



Critical consciousness in education

Troublemaker James Lindsay is trying to get people to move beyond the use of "critical race theory" and "queer theory" to explain wokeness, and return to the Marxist roots of today's woke revolutionary movement. I find this interesting, because he co-wrote a book explaining how some of the grievance studies included a lot of postmodern nonsense. It's deep reading. He's going back to basics, it seems.

They're trashing the word "Woke" and conservatives for using it because it has become a gigantic liability that their ideology has a name now. Keep going.

Woke means Critical Consciousness. Critical Consciousness means the cult beliefs and activism of Critical Marxism. It means denouncing the existing world to make way for a "utopian" alternative.

Saturday Morning Coffee Break & Prayer Revival

3 24 coffee break.jpg


My friend and fellow Cob CBD is always looking out for you Morons. I'm sorry to announce the following: The Saturday Morning Coffee Break perpetuates racism.

Is coffee racist? How drinking coffee perpetuates white supremacy
Created by Black people for Black people—and now a pillar of white supremacist capitalism. If you consume coffee, you are helping an industry built on racism.

If you’re a person of color, you know what I’m talking about. You walk into a new coffee shop and your senses are overwhelmed with whiteness and you get the glare from the Karens. The white hipster barista lines herself up between you and the bathrooms, ready to tell you non-customers aren’t welcome.

Trump warns of "death & destruction" if he's indicted.

I think he just set himself up for the next prosecution.


I've mentioned the possibility that Democrats are driving us all towards violent conflict, too. But it's a different when a political leader talks this way. A second-tier blogger's warning is just a warning; a political leader talking about this sounds like he's commanding his troops.

I really do think he just guaranteed himself an indictment here -- just to f*** with him -- and possibly another charge for incitement. And of course the Soros prosecutor will bring that charge.

Trump has been through an awful lot. An awful lot. The Deep State betrayed America to undermine and eject a candidate they did not give us permission to elect. As much as we feel the unfairness and treachery of this, Trump must feel it worse.

That said, Trump is not bearing up well under this pressure. Unless he really intends to lead a violent overthrow of the US government -- and as far as that goes, I'm listening -- he needs to stop with this crap that just gets him and his supporters into trouble without doing anything positive for them.

And of course the left will play this hoax powder to the hilt.

Russian email accounts sent several hoax bomb threats to the Soros-backed communist DA, so the media will be shrieking about "RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE IN MUH TRIALS" all week.

We're now so respected on the world stage that Iran has been launching Rockets of Friendship and Approval at our troops for hours. Thanks, NeverTrump!

Via bonhomme.

Kevin McCarthy is now almost as popular with Republicans as Trump is. Mitch McConnell is not.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has moved into rare political space, reaching an approval rating higher than typical for a top party congressional leader and challenging former President Donald Trump's approval among Republicans.

With a 52% favorability overall and 71% among Republicans, McCarthy has erased whatever it was that some House conservatives didn't like about him during the drawn-out, four-day, 15-ballot speaker election controversy in January.


In a Rasmussen Reports survey, McCarthy maintained a 52% somewhat to very favorable rating and 36% unfavorability among all likely voters. With Republicans, his 71% favorability towers over his 18% unfavorability.

Trump, meanwhile, holds an equal 52% favorable rating, but 44% of all likely voters disapprove. And among Republicans, 77% view Trump favorably to 22% who don't.

McConnell's.... favorable rating is 31% to 60% who view him unfavorably, and Rasmussen said just 32% of Republicans view him somewhat or very favorably.

The military defends woke diversity training, claiming it helps soldiers feel seen.

Top military officials in the Biden Administration recently attempted to defend far-left "diversity" training in the military, claiming that such sessions make all soldiers feel more "included."

As the Washington Free Beacon reports, Air Force Chief of Staff General C.Q. Brown gave an interview for Defense One defending the practice of diversity training, claiming that "when people join our military, they want to look around and see somebody who looks like them."

"They want to be part of a team, and feel like they're included," Brown added.

Brown praised the practice for its alleged efforts to build "cohesive" teams for all service members, "no matter their background."

Similarly, General David Berger, Commandant of the Marine Corps, claimed that he has seen "zero evidence" of any negative impact from such left-wing policies when it comes to the end result of making stronger Marines.

House Republicans are currently attempting to cut funding for such far-left practices in the military; other examples include a program in the Army for training soldiers on how to use "gender pronouns," and a similar training video for the Navy discussing pronouns and "safe spaces."

Earlier this week I wrote a post stating that TikTok could download people's information, even if they've never used TikTok. But I left out the article making this claim. It's here.

Cybersecurity company Feroot Security released a new report last week claiming TikTok can mine data and track people even if they have never used the social media app before.

TikTok, owned by Chinese company ByteDance, uses trackers called pixels to retrieve "tons of information," according to the report obtained by Fox News. This information includes usernames, passwords, credit cards, banking information, and personal health details. The pixels can pick off data from any website containing an embedded TikTok video, the report claims. Even if the TikTok app is deleted, it will continue to collect and transfer data.

ByteDance is required to submit any data collected by TikTok to the Chinese government. "Therefore, your data can be shared with the Chinese government and used to spy on you or spread misinformation about the American people," Fox News explained.

Went to the Onion for the first time in 20 years. Bottom of the shit barrel doesn't even describe it:

Conservative Historian Claims Diversity Ultimately Doomed Third Reich


“Sadly, had Hitler and his Nazi generals not been so obsessed with the ideals of diversity, equity, and inclusion within their institutions, the Third Reich as we know it would still be around today,” said Reed, adding that Nazi Germany would have easily defeated the Allied forces and conquered all of Europe had it not been so focused on making people of all races, genders, and sexualities feel included, valued, and safe.

Fruit Roll-Ups is forced to issue statement for the benefit of our increasingly stupid youth that the plastic wrapper is not actually edible, despite claims made on TikTok.

Snack brand Fruit Roll-Ups has forewarned people on TikTok to not eat the plastic that the fruit leather is wrapped in after someone on the platform claimed that the plastic is edible.

The video is one of several TikTok clips making the rounds about unique ways to eat the classic snack. In one, users freeze the Fruit Roll-Ups for an icy and sweet treat.

Others are even putting a chunk of ice cream in the fruit leather's center for a brain-numbing delicacy.

The fruity label debunked a user on TikTok recently -- named hollyberry09 -- who stated that it was perfectly fine to eat the plastic when the snack is frozen.

The Combination of Covid Infection + Covid "Vaccine" Actually Damages the Body's Immune Response, Study Claims


Hunt-and-kill anti-cancer cells deliver "spectacular" results.

Immune checkpoint inhibitors such as Keytruda and Opdivo work by unleashing the immune system's T cells to attack tumor cells. Their introduction a decade ago marked a major advance in cancer therapy, but only 10% to 30% of treated patients experience long-term improvement. In a paper published online today in The Journal of Clinical Investigation (JCI), scientists at Albert Einstein College of Medicine describe findings that could bolster the effectiveness of immune-checkpoint therapy.

Rather than rally T cells against cancer, the Einstein research team used different human immune cells known as natural killer (NK) cells--with dramatic results. "We believe the novel immunotherapy we've developed has great potential to move into clinical trials involving various types of cancer," said study leader Xingxing Zang, M.Med., Ph.D., the Louis Goldstein Swan Chair in Cancer Research and professor of microbiology & immunology, of oncology, of urology, and of medicine at Einstein and a member of the Cancer Therapeutics Program of the Montefiore Einstein Cancer Center.

Immune cells are coated with receptors called "checkpoint" proteins, which restrict them from attacking healthy cells while allowing them to attack and kill dangerous cells. But most cancer cells have proteins which trick immune cells into treating them as healthy, so they don't attack the cancer cells. Immune checkpoint inhibitors are antibodies which interfere with cancer cells' ability to trick immune cells into leaving them be.

The new treatment is designed to allow "natural killer (NK) cells" also see through cancer cells' disguise, bringing them into the fight against cancer cells along with T-cells.

In studies involving humanized animal models of several types of human cancers, the researchers showed that their monoclonal antibody against KIR2DL5--by blocking the KIR2DL5/PVR pathway--allowed NK cells to vigorously attack and shrink human tumors and prolong animal survival...

Now that Piers Morgan has alienated the left so much he can only get work at "right"-leaning outlets like Fox, he says he's changed his mind, and vaccine-refusers are not selfish bastards who want to murder grandma.

But he's not apologizing, because, you see, "everyone slightly lost their minds" during covid. Not just him -- everybody.

Piers Morgan said during an interview with "Triggernometry" that he was wrong about his previous rhetoric regarding COVID because the "science changed."


"I've changed my mind on a few things with COVID because the science changed," Morgan said. "I'll give you an example, and I'm quite happy to admit this and talk about it and people are like 'ah, there you go.' Like yeah, because to me, it changed. I, when they said the vaccine couldn't transmit the virus, I said right, so in that case everyone who doesn't have the vaccine right now represents a clear and present threat to spreading this virus and getting killed. You're selfish bastards, I'm gonna call you out. And by the way, if you do have the vaccine, they should have more freedoms because they're not gonna transmit it once they've had the jab. You are, you don't get."

Morgan said everything he had said about the vaccines was "completely wrong" once scientists said vaccinated people could get infected with the virus. He changed his views to believe that getting the jab is a "personal choice."

"Everyone slightly lost their minds and people were sort of banging on about freedom, where were you for the freedom of people to espouse these you didn't agree with on COVID?" Morgan said. "And it's a tricky one when a lot of people are dying but the whole point of fighting for freedom is sometimes, a lot of people die for freedom. So I totally accept that."

Right. Now that you have no one else to work for except corporations which play to freedom-championing conservatives, you "totally accept that" people have freedom over their own bodies. Wow, what an intellectual hero.

Not wearing a mask is racist, abelist, and classist, "professor" claims.


She looks fun.

And of course she claims to have "more than one disability." That's the new hotness for boosting your Oppression Quotient.

Queer professor decides she'll also identify as "disabled."

During a Mar. 6 panel discussion, professor Sami Schalk of the University of Wisconsin-Madison gave an account of an epiphany she had while researching disability studies. Before conducting this research, she did not think of herself as disabled. After, however, Schalk realized "there was a part of [her] that knew" she had a disability, similar to her self-realization that she was queer.

Schalk, besides being a professor of Gender & Women's Studies, describes herself as "polyamorous and a pleasure activist." She has also "twerked" with Lizzo.

Schalk spoke with Vilissa Thompson, a social worker, on the CUNY Graduate Center YouTube channel about Schalk's research and book titled "Black Disability Politics."

"So I took this [disability studies] class, and it blew my mind. Just fireworks going off in my brain ... I had spent so much time thinking about race and gender and class and sexuality, and I had just not been thinking about disability with the same critical lens," Schalk said of her first experiences encountering the discipline in college.

"I had to grapple with my own privilege within the disability system, because at the time I didn't understand myself as disabled," she continued. She then added, "[T]here was a part of me that knew, just like there was a part of me that knew I was queer."

The disabilities she claims include, according to her book, is "depression, disordered eating, chronic pain, and anxiety." She claims this makes her "unquestionably disabled."

A blind man just said, "You got it so bad, Honey."

I guess mental illness is a disability.

Reminder that people spend $100,000 per year to send their children to be molded by lunatics like this.

Keep this in mind for the next story: Histrionic women are making it a real habit of claiming any fashionable Disability Identity that comes along.

Surprise: "Long covid," if it's real, is associated with unhealthy life choices.

Older, heavier women who smoke and are unvaccinated are at significantly higher risk of developing so-called long COVID than people with healthier lifestyles, a study has found.

Nine public health researchers published the meta-analysis of 41 studies covering 860,783 patients Thursday in JAMA Internal Medicine. It is the first study to summarize all comorbidities identified in long COVID research published in leading medical journals as of Dec. 5.

Researchers found that while being female and over 40 were the top risk factors for contracting long COVID, also known as "Post-COVID-19 condition," others involved preventable conditions for all patients -- such as being unvaccinated, overweight and a smoker.

They noted that patients who received two doses of a SARS-CoV-2 vaccination were 43% less likely to develop the condition, which the World Health Organization defines as acute symptoms lasting at least three to five months after infection.

CNN ran this story but decided to suppress the fact that being overweight or a smoker (or female) increased the chances of "long covid." Instead, they claimed that the report's finding was:


Just absolute nonstop lies and propaganda. The notion that there are health interventions, like exercise, diet, and quitting smoking, that can protect against bad cases of covid is something the propagandists are determined to suppress and censor. The only option they will allow to be discussed is the non-vaccinating vaccine.

If anyone has had long covid, you have my sympathies. It's not so much that I doubt the syndrome entirely, it's that I think a lot of people who don't have long covid are just claiming they have long covid to stay out of work and collect disability. It's a very vague diagnosis that depends heavily on the patient's claims about what she's feeling. (And it is mostly women claiming to have long covid.) As Ryan Long points out, it just seems that people claiming to have long covid tend to be people who were previously claiming to have other problems that kept them from working or going into the office.

Meanwhile, a study says that people who had covid-19, and then got the vaccine anyway, as "Doctor" Anthony Fauci demanded, actually wound up damaging their body's natural immune response.

People who contracted COVID-19 before they got vaccinated appear to have damaged a key part of their immune-cell response, Stanford University researchers have found.

The study, published last week in the journal Immunity, reported a "major reduction" in the body's quantity and quality of CD8+ T cells -- known as "killer T cells" for their ability to kill infected cells -- in people who had survived a bout with COVID-19.

"You have damage that, even in recovery from the infection, you haven't really recovered your ability to make those CD8+ cells. So something happened in the course of infection to prevent that, to damage your response," Stanford professor Mark Davis, head of the university's Institute for Immunity, Transplantation and Infection, told CBS News.


The researchers found that vaccination of people who had never been infected with COVID-19 sparked robust CD4+ and CD8+ T-cell responses to the virus' spike protein.

But people who had survived a COVID-19 infection before vaccination produced spike-specific CD8+ T cells at considerably lower levels -- and with less functionality -- compared to vaccinated people who had never been infected.

This study must be one of those Right Wing Fake Science studies.

The study was co-funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which is part of the National Institutes of Health.

That's of course "Doctor" Fauci's former agency.

And Fauci denied the power of natural immunity post-infection, and demanded that all people, even those with post-infection immunity, get vaccinated.

And it turns out that this was, as usual, the exact wrong course of action.

I wonder if long covid is caused by the combination of infection followed by vaccine -- maybe the vaccine is suppressing their "killer T cells" enough to allow covid symptoms to persist.

And wouldn't that be a fine valedictory from the most incompetent and corrupt -- and lethal -- bureaucrat who ever lived.

Victoria Alonso Confirmed Fired; and a Review of Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves


Variety confirms what everyone already knew. Victoria Alonso did not just decided to leave Marvel on a Friday without any warning and without any new job lined up.

She was fired.

The veteran Marvel Studios executive and producer of the nominated film "Argentina, 1985" was stopped on the red carpet, posing for photographers assigned to capture top executives on Hollywood's big night. But something shocked her.

"Look at this! Two women!" Alonso said of the female photographers hired for the gig (as in most corners of Hollywood, women are outnumbered by men on the photo line). Emotional, Alonso insisted the pair put down their cameras and pose for a photo with her in front of a giant Oscar statuette. As they all smiled, she told them, "We've worked so hard to get here and we're not going anywhere."

Eight days later, she was fired as Marvel's president of physical production, post-production, VFX and animation, three individuals familiar with the matter told Variety.


While the cause of Alonso's termination is unclear, the sources said, the decision was made by a consortium including human resources, Disney's legal department and multiple executives including Disney Entertainment co-chairman Alan Bergman (to whom all of Marvel Studios reports). Alonso's longtime boss and Marvel chief creative officer Kevin Feige felt mired in an impossible situation and, ultimately, did not intervene, one source added. Alonso was blindsided, another insider added.

A representative for Alonso declined to provide comment for this story. Marvel Studios had no comment.

The article flacks for Alonso by noting it was Disney's top executives who ordered Marvel to flood the zone with crap, just to have "content" of dubious value on Disney+.


That breakneck distribution schedule, a product of the pandemic and the need to constantly feed Disney+, was not of Alonso's making. Marvel was far from the only studio tasked with delivering feature-level content for a newly launched streaming service. But it was Alonso's job to get each of those titles through Marvel's gargantuan post-production process. By the summer of 2022, cracks began to show in the company's seemingly impervious armor.

Starting on Reddit, followed by a series of stories published across the internet, visual effects artists began to loudly complain about Marvel's demanding post-production schedules. Complaints ranged from unrelenting overtime to chronic understaffing to the inability to avoid delivering substandard work due to constantly changing deadlines. Some singled out Alonso as a "kingmaker" who would blacklist artists who have "pissed her off in any way."

One visual effects artist recently told Variety that the biggest issue for them was Marvel's inability to provide clear guidelines.

"The show I was on really struggled because it was an established character whose powers they were reconceiving for the MCU," the artist said on the condition of anonymity. Most complaints, they said, came down to one refrain: "Marvel doesn't figure shit out beforehand."


[T]the drumbeat that Something Is Rotten in the State of Marvel Studios only grew louder with the release of "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania," a film that finished shooting over a year before it was due in theaters and still weathered repeated criticism for "generic" visual effects that looked like "CGI glop" and were "very flat and cruddy-looking." Even more critical: The movie has grossed $463 million globally to date, the worst performance of the "Ant-Man" franchise and a figure that means that it will struggle to break even in its theatrical window.

Regarding Dungeons and Dragons, I got an exclusive offer to see this movie early. By "Exclusive Offer," I mean Amazon offered tickets to an advance screening to anyone with Prime. I thought "What the heck, I can get a post out of it," and bought a ticket.

The movie opens up for common plebeians like yourselves on March 31.

There are some background reasons to not see this movie, and I don't ever want to recommend a Corporate Enemy-Comms Product without warning people.

But I'll deal with that stuff after the actual review. And this will be a long one.

On the merits of just the actual movie -- putting aside the background stuff -- it's a recommend. I'd almost say an enthusiastic recommend.

If you liked the tone of the trailer, or the Speak with Dead clip, then you will like the movie, as the movie maintains that level of humor throughout.

One of the first scenes, featuring Chris Pine trying to convince a board of pardons to release him from Fantasy Mega-Prison, is laugh-out-loud and puts you in a receptive mood for what comes later.

Newly-Revealed Emails Show That Biden's Praetorian Were Successful in Convincing the Media to Refuse to Run Any Negative Stories About the Invalid Candidate


One aide bragged that she convinced an alleged journalist to "not use" any negative information about the Biden family unless "her editors held a gun to her head."

Newly-released records from the National Archives prove that attempts to bury any negative stories about the Biden family began long before the 2020 election, and even predate efforts to suppress the infamous Hunter Biden laptop story.

As reported by Just The News, the emails in question were released as the result of a lawsuit filed by the nonprofit group America First Legal. The emails date back to the Obama Administration, in the year 2015. In one email, an aide to then-Vice President Joe Biden claimed that she convinced a reporter to "only use" negative information on the Biden family "if her editors hold a gun to her head."

Others in Biden's office at the time actively worked to censor negative stories surrounding Hunter Biddn's involvement with the corrupt Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings, especially in the context of Vice President Biden's trip to Ukraine in December of 2015. At that time, Joe Biden himself personally approved quotes to address the matter of his son's foreign business deals, even though Biden has since tried to claim that he was unaware of Hunter's activities.

"VP signed off on this -- will give this quote to both reporters in my name shortly," said Kate Bedingfield, who at the time was a press official in the office of the Vice President.

"Really frustrating," Bedingfeld wrote in another email in regards to reporters who began asking questions about Hunter's business deals during that time. "That said, so long as it doesn't elevate and trigger someone else to write, it's actually a good and straightforward response."

"Joe Biden and the Biden vice presidency were intimately involved in the Hunter Biden Burisma affair," said Stephen Miller, the president of America First Legal, on Thursday in response to the revelations. "They were intimately aware of it. They were intimately aware of the ethical objections, and they were intimately involved in trying to spin and control the press about it."

"What we are now all learning is that the National Archives has a deep state that is radically committed to stopping the public from accessing these documents, and also clearly is radically committed to attacking anything or anybody that they believe is contrary to their agenda," Miller added.

As the Biden family faces numerous investigations from the Republican-controlled House of Representatives, Hunter Biden's affiliation with Burisma remains at the heart of the corruption scandal. Most infamously, then-Vice President Biden threatened then-President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko as then-Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin began an investigation into Burisma, a probe which would have eventually involved Hunter. Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion of American aid to Ukraine unless Poroshenko fired Shokin, which he ultimately did.

Jonathan Turley points out that the National Archives have also disproved Biden's claims to have "never" spoken to Hunter about his filthy foreign influence peddling.

For years, President Joe Biden has maintained a Sgt. Schultz defense to allegations that his family has profiteered on influence peddling with foreign countries and companies. Despite mounting evidence to the contrary, Biden maintains that he "knows nothing, nothing" about Hunter Biden's business deals. He recently doubled down on this defense by even denying that family members received money from foreign sources. He repeated his denial even after the release of financial transfer reports from his own administration showing millions transferred from China. Now, emails have emerged that show that Biden personally helped draft responses to the controversial deals in 2015 when he was Vice President. It also appears that Biden officials like former Biden Communications Director Kate Bedingfield knew of his role as the President continued to deny any involvement.

The National Archives has released emails that show that then-Vice President Joe Biden approved an official statement in December 2015 about Hunter Biden's position on a Ukrainian energy company's board.

Biden has denied any knowledge or involvement in these business dealings at least seven times as a presidential candidate and as president.

For years, the media has continued to report President Biden's repeated claim that "I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings." At the outset, the media only had to suspend any disbelief that the president could fly to China as Vice President with his son on Air Force 2 without discussing his planned business dealings on the trip.

Of course, the emails on the laptop quickly refuted this claim. However, the media buried the laptop story before the election or pushed the false claim that it was fake Russian disinformation.

Some in the media have repeated those denials, including most recently the Associated Press which, in 2022, falsely stated that there was no evidence Biden ever discussed the deals with his son despite an actual audiotape proving that claim to be false.

The audiotape showed President Biden leaving a message for Hunter specifically discussing coverage of those dealings:

"Hey pal, it's Dad. It's 8:15 on Wednesday night. If you get a chance just give me a call. Nothing urgent. I just wanted to talk to you. I thought the article released online, it's going to be printed tomorrow in the Times, was good. I think you're clear. And anyway if you get a chance give me a call, I love you."

Some of us have written for two years that President Biden's denial of knowledge is patently false. It was equally evident that the Biden family was selling influence and access. There are emails of Ukrainian and other foreign clients thanking Hunter Biden for arranging meetings with his father. There are photos from dinners and meetings that tie President Biden to these figures, including a 2015 dinner with a group of Hunter Biden's Russian and Kazakh clients.

Biden Allegedly Wakes Up and Orders a Retaliatory Air Strike Against a Suspected Iran-Funded Base in Syria


This was after the Iran-funded base used a drone to attack and kill a US contractor.

Boy the world sure is afraid of Biden. He really has returned America to its pinnacle place in the world, as NeverTrump promised he would.

The US conducted an airstrike in Syria against what it said were Iranian-affiliated facilities after a suspected Iranian drone on Thursday struck a facility housing US personnel in the country, killing an American contractor and wounding five US service members.

The contractor was an American citizen, a spokesman for US Central Command confirmed, and an additional US contractor was also wounded in the strike. An official familiar with the matter told CNN that the injured service members are all in stable condition.

"The intelligence community assess the UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) to be of Iranian origin," the Pentagon said.

In response to the strike, President Joe Biden authorized a precision airstrike "in eastern Syria against facilities used by groups affiliated with Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC)," Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said in the statement.

The US, according to the Pentagon statement, "took proportionate and deliberate action intended to limit the risk of escalation and minimize casualties."

Wow that certainly sounds menacing. I'm sure Iran will be on best behavior now.

I wonder if the strike killed any Austere Religious Scholars, as the Washington Post said of Trump's airstrike that took out the top leader of the Revolutionary Guards. You know, when the left screamed about an effective strike against Iranian interests in Syria.

Kari Lake's Election Fraud Lawsuit Can Go Forward, Says Arizona Supreme Court


Kari Lake's lawsuit against Maricopa County, alleging that the Democrat-run county violated state law for verifying signatures, is allowed to go forward.

Arizona Supreme Court Chief Justice Robert Brutinel wrote that the court would decide whether or not Lake could prove her claim -- that Maricopa County did not comply with Arizona election law regarding ballot tabulation. Lake must also prove that there were enough potentially fraudulent votes to affect the outcome of the election based on a "competent mathematical basis to conclude that the outcome would plausibly have been different, not simply an untethered assertion of uncertainty."

Lake announced in January that she had three whistleblowers who claim 130,000 votes had been rejected because of bogus signatures, but "higher-ups" insisted they be counted.

This judge is guilty of Misinformation in the First Degree -- there is never any justification to accuse Democrats of vote fraud. NEVER.

Biden's Approval Falls to the Thirties. But He Has a Secret Weapon


He's now down at close to the lowest level of his ill-gotten "presidency."

The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll out today shows just 38% of Americans approve of Biden's performance as president -- barely above the 36% the president scored last July.

Biden has either made most Americans unhappy or has disappointed them. His policies have generated fierce opposition from Republicans and independents, while many on the left say they're disappointed that Biden hasn't done more.

Biden's marks on the economy are even lower. Just 31% approve of Biden's stewardship of the national economy, about where it's been over the course of the last year.

He'd actually recovered a bit to 45% over the winter.

AP notes that only a quarter of Americans agree that the national economy is good, or that the country is headed in the right direction.

That's about two thirds of the partisan Democrat base.

But comes a hero: Kamala Harris is putting out word that she will campaign "extensively" for Biden.

Vice President Kamala Harris is preparing to campaign extensively when President Biden launches his much-anticipated re-election bid, despite concerns in the Democratic Party that her performance in office, criticized by some as uneven, has made her a liability.

Ms. Harris plans to visit urban centers of swing states to persuade Black voters, young people and other liberal constituencies to re-elect Mr. Biden, according to people familiar with discussions about her campaign efforts. She will lead the administration's advocacy for abortion rights, tout the administration's climate investments and echo Mr. Biden's pledge to protect Medicare and Social Security.
Some top Democratic lawmakers and donors have been questioning Ms. Harris's future behind closed doors for months, saying they don't think the vice president has used her platform effectively, according to attendees at these events.

At one recent Zoom event organized by a former speechwriter for Mr. Biden, one of the Democrats aired frustrations with Ms. Harris, questioning whether she would be a liability to the 2024 ticket, according to people familiar with the call. Former California Sen. Barbara Boxer responded saying they could share concerns with Mr. Biden if they wanted. CNN earlier reported the event. The exchange during the call spurred further private discussion on the topic among some who had attended, those people said.

Kamala Harris and her "backers" -- who I think are just Kamala Harris wearing a mustache and affecting a funny voice -- defend her by invoking the Two Pillars of Kamala Apologism.

1, people are racist, and 2, she's not being "positioned for success" by white men.

Her backers said Ms. Harris, the first woman to hold her position and the daughter of Indian and Jamaican immigrants, is being held to a different standard from past vice presidents, including Mr. Biden.


Cynthia Johnson, 67, a retired teacher from Laurinburg, N.C., who pointed out she attended an HBCU, like Ms. Harris, said she had been hoping for the vice president to play a bigger role in the administration. "At this point, she is kind of sidelined," Ms. Johnson said. "And I don't get it."

Yes that's right, white men are "sidelining" her.

Say, has she visited the border? She is the Border Czar, you know.

Her backers say she's hanging back... so as not to outshine Biden.

Like most vice presidents, she has little agency in setting the White House agenda and cannot publicly get in front of Mr. Biden on policy or be seen as outshining him, Ms. Harris's allies say.

But Kamala has a lot of big victories that people just don't know about.

Like this one:

She has pushed for changes--big and small--at the White House that have rankled administration officials. Ms. Harris lobbied national security officials to change the way they described female foreign leaders in their briefings to avoid sexist language, such as "prickly," according to those people.

Wow. What a stateswoman.

Meanwhile, Biden has an explanation for why Kamala is "sidelined." Namely, that she has sidelined herself, refusing to actually do anything in the job.

Aides say he's "frustrated" that Kamala just won't "take anything off his plate."

Not the tapioca -- he wants that for later.

WASHINGTON -- Two former White House officials said President Biden is frustrated with Vice President Kamala Harris' performance -- even if he remains committed to keeping her as his running mate in the 2024 election, a new report reveals.

The 80-year-old Biden, who has gone out of his way to praise Harris in recent public remarks, reportedly has griped about his No. 2's reluctance to take on risky assignments.

"A point of tension in their relationship is that I don't think that the president sees her as somebody who takes anything off of his plate" due to a "fear of messing up," one former White House official told Reuters.


Biden has made a point of praising Harris recently -- after prior reports that he's been frustrated with her apparent reluctance to embrace an assignment to reduce record-breaking illegal immigration.

Well, again, that's actually Biden's fault.


The president vented to a friend about Harris in 2021 after he got word that her husband, Douglas Emhoff, was complaining about the tasks assigned to her, including mitigating migration and pushing for a federal voting-rights law, Whipple wrote.

"Biden was annoyed," the book says. "He hadn't asked Harris to do anything he hadn't done as vice president -- and she'd begged him for the voting rights assignment."

It goes without saying that Biden's handlers aren't relying on Kamala Harris to deliver an election win.

Instead, they're banking on what "won" them the election in 2020: rigging the the elections again, by ordering federal agencies to work with third-party megadonors like Mark Zuckerberg to turn out the vote... in Democrat districts.

Roughly two years ago, President Biden issued an executive order that went relatively unnoticed and has been mostly forgotten by now, but which endangers the integrity of our elections.

Executive Order 14019 instructs federal agencies, some of which are unrelated to election administration, to collaborate with external private groups to "promote voter registration and voter participation."

As innocuous as this sounds on its face, the White House is emulating billionaire Mark Zuckerberg's efforts to influence the 2020 election and turning it into a publicly-funded operation. That's right: who needs Zuckerbucks when taxpayers like you can fund Democrat voter outreach?

And before you say that's unconstitutional, since when has that mattered to the radical left that feels entitled to power and will do anything to preserve it?

Naturally, the Biden administration has been deliberately vague about the specifics of how government agencies will collaborate with these private groups to engage voters. But the 2024 election is fast approaching, and the White House has quietly disclosed some of the details of how it will repurpose government agencies into a massive taxpayer-funded "get-out-the-vote" operation for the Democrats.


Don't forget that there's nothing preventing the White House and partisan bureaucrats in federal agencies from hand-picking groups that favor "get-out-the-vote" activities for Democrats, ensuring their electoral victories for years to come.

As grim as this situation sounds, we can fight this. Just as state legislatures have banned or restricted Zuckerbucks, they can do the same here. "To start, state legislatures can pass laws requiring approval before any new federal funds or new election administration guidance can be accepted or followed by state agencies," explain Tarren Bragdon and Madeline Malisa at our sister site, Townhall. "Legislatures can also require state agencies to notify them when a federal agency tries to contact them through a backchannel." Congress can similarly refuse to fund these agencies and their efforts to boost Democrats.

THE MORNING RANT: Global Electric Vehicle Sales Are Collapsing & Periodic Update on Other EV Follies

—Buck Throckmorton

EV on Fire for Header - Cartoon.JPG

Electric vehicles are a niche product with limited appeal, and it has become quite clear that massive subsidies are the only way to get their sales volume above those of other exotic and novelty cars.

EV Sales Collapse As Subsidies and Tax Credits Come to an Abrupt Halt

The global electric vehicle (EV) market is reeling from one of the most dramatic collapses in monthly sales to date, with Rystad Energy Research showing that only 672,000 units were sold in January, almost half of December 2022 sales and a mere 3% year-on-year increase over January 2022. The EV market share among all passenger car sales also tumbled to 14% in January, well down on the 23% seen in December.

Governments literally have to pay people to buy EVs. Without massive subsidization, people choose gas-powered cars. In Germany, the market share of EVs dropped from 55% in December to 15% in January when the government reduced the amount of incentives it was paying consumers to buy EVs.

Electric Car Sales Plummet in Germany Following Subsidy Cut

Registrations of new electric vehicles collapsed in Germany following cuts in buyers’ premiums at the beginning of the year. Registrations for battery electric vehicles dropped about 83 percent to 18,100 in January from 104,300 in December…

The share of e-cars fell to 15 percent in January from more than 55 percent in December, while total car registrations dropped three percent…

Why did the government cut incentives?

The government decided in mid-2022 to reduce support payments for new e-cars, arguing they had become increasingly attractive for buyers even without support payments.

That’s funny. No, EVs are not attractive without support payments. There is not enough perfume or lipstick that you can slap on EVs to make them attractive without massive government subsidization.

EV sales are collapsing in China too…

Tesla Rivals Cutting Prices Amid Major Sales Slump In China; Ford and Volkswagen Are Both Offering $6,000 Discounts on EVs

The Wall Street Journal reports that manufacturers and dealerships in China are facing a sales slump. Ford, GM, Volkswagen, and others are now running EV promotions and cutting prices.

Ford has knocked $6,000 off its Mustang Mach-E, which puts the base model at around $31,000. This came after just 84 of the electric crossovers were sold in China in January 2023, as compared to around 1,500 in December 2022.


So let’s say you bought an EV thanks to the generous government subsidy. You still have to insure it.

Electric Car Insurance: Why It Costs More [Forbes – 01/04/2023]

Insuring your EV will cost you a little more than a regular car, about $100 or so per year. Maybe you’re cool with that.

But what happens if you’re in a fender bender. You better hope there isn’t so much as a scratch to the battery case.

Scratched EV Battery? Your Insurer May Have to Junk the Whole Car [Reuters – 3/20/2023]

For many electric vehicles, there is no way to repair or assess even slightly damaged battery packs after accidents, forcing insurance companies to write off cars with few miles - leading to higher premiums and undercutting gains from going electric.

Why not just replace the battery?

Big scoops from Kamran Pasha about Disney
According to his source "sparrow" who has proven reliable in the past, and who is he has confirmed the identity of, Bob Iger has ordered a full audit of Kathleen Kennedy's Lucasfilm. He's suspicious about the spending going on over there, and why Kennedy could only offer an insulting $5000 payoff to a producer she offered a job to, and then withdrew the offer. Iger wants to know why money is so tight that only $5000 was offered in a breach of contract case where a more typical payoff would be $500,000. Apparently Lucasfilm offered to do their own internal audit, and Iger said no, he wanted Disney's own accountants to audit Lucasfilm. Sounds like he said, "I'm ordering a complete Shut-Down of Star Wars until I can figure out what the hell is going on down there."
Pasha also says that there will be more big names being fired at Disney. Not as big as Victoria Alonso, but part of the point of that is that when the next big names get fired, the press won't be as interested because it's a let-down after Alonso's firing
That former San Francisco police commissioner and would-be politician just deleted one of his tweets telling someone complaining of having $10,000 and passports stolen from a car to go back to the suburbs, p*ssy.
He kept the first tweet up, though.
Meanwhile San Francisco will probably jump at the chance to elect him DA
Report/Rumor: Panic in the halls of Disney as the Wokies awake to a new reality in which they can be fired for poor performance; Iger orders executives to make the already-announced 7000 layoffs on an accelerated basis and start firing people now
Iger is a woke monster. He's only doing this because Disney is losing billions, and he has an activist investor who will stage a proxy fight unless he gets this woke disaster straightened out fast.
Kathleen Kennedy suffers a brand new string of humiliations and failures
Discussion/speculation: Victoria Alonso had been set on a glide path to a "soft exit" back in 2021
The key idea here is that Alonso's position was made-up only for her. The position did not exist before they gave it to her, and it almost certainly will not exist now that she's gone. They're suggesting that she was "promoted" to a non-vital job as part of a plan to eventually get rid of her. But after the huge cost overruns of Marvel's latest flops, they decided to push her out sooner rather than later. Although she's in charge of VFX, she's also in charge of "physical production," meaning the actual shoots (and re-shoots, and re-re-shoots, and re-re-re-shoots) of Marvel movies.
Note that it's been previously rumored that both Marvel and Lucasfilm have taken to a shooting technique they call "scrapbooking," where they film multiple possible endings and multiple plot-exposition scenes which will lead to those possible endings. Then they choose which movie they want to assemble after test screenings. And because audiences haven't liked these movies lately, they wind up having to do re-shoots and more re-shoots later. This is obviously very costly. I don't think that's Alonso's fault, though: Having a good script in hand isn't part of physical production, it's part of development. And ultimately it's Feige approving this "scrapbooking" CYA strategy rather than just getting the script into proper shape before shooting and saying, "The script is the story, period."
Not positive this is actually happening, though. But multiple channels report on it.

Your weekly reminder that the left supported Russia for 100 years exactly (1917 to 2017) and took its side in every dispute, arguing against every military system designed to deter them or shoot down missiles, arguing endlessly that we should concede the entire world to the Soviet Union, even laughing in a 2012 presidential debate at the notion that Russia was a "global foe."
But then in 2016 Russia spent $150,000 on FaceBook ads to stir up political trouble which a failed alcoholic lesbian claimed was "stealing the election."
At that point, the left became the absolute most unhinged of Dr. Strangelove level Russia hawks, and began attacking anyone who didn't now want to start a nuclear exchange with Russia a "RUSSIAN AGENT."
Just forget about those previous 90 years, eh, comrade? Like when the Democrat party was made up of front groups directly funded by the KGB?
Leftists have no patriotism, except to leftism itself. They championed Russia when it was invading the world and funding terrorist groups to attack Europe, Israel, and the US. They finally decided that Russia might be a Bad Guy when they ran $150,000 in ads on FaceBook that Hillary Clinton said "stole" the election from her.
