Muldoon: A Last Limerick
NeverTrump hero Evan McMullin: Hillary Clinton is right, Tulsi is a Russian agent
Everyone who disagrees with the liberal DC consensus is a Russian, a Racist, or a Russian Racist.
Dancing in the Streets, No Music Silent Video Version
Really funny. It's old, but still funny.
Mitt Romney, who is America's number one geopolitical foe, claims Turkey is a "small country"
Kyle Sheideler responds that he is anti-Turkey and doesn't wish them to be a part of NATO, but Mitt Romney should stick to giving gay kids haircut rapes, because Turkey has the second largest army in all of NATO, after only the US. If that's "small," what would "big" be?
When I was in Beirut, I was surprised to learn that Arabs felt insecure because there was not a single Arab great power capable of doing much more than defend its own borders (if even that). No Arab powers-- not even in the Middle East? No, I was told by a professor. There are three great powers in the Middle East, but not a single one of them is Arab. One is Israel -- obviously not Arab. One is Iran. They're Persians. And one is Turkey, who are not Arabs but Turks.
Anyway, it's strange to hear Mitt Romney, America's Number One Geopolitical Foe, get something so absurdly wrong as to call Turkey, one of the three Great Powers of the Middle East, a "small country" that we don't need to pay no mind to.
Quick funny story from Tim Pool, explaining why social media "fact-checking" is trash -- it's because they rely on trash outlets, like CNN and MSNBC (and the SPLC and Snopes!), to decide what is true and what is not true, despite CNN and MSNBC being absurdly biased and wrong more often than right.
The quick story he tells (about a minute long) is about Wikipedia's insistence that he himself "invented a zeppelin" -- something some trash outlet made up. It's not derogatory -- who wouldn't want to be credited as a zeppelin inventor? -- but it's completely false and without even a some distorted factual basis.
But no matter how many times Pool tells them "I never invented any zeppelin, you should delete that," they keep the false zeppelin-inventing biographical point, because Tim Pool is not considered a "credible source" on Tim Pool's zeppelin-inventing career or lack of same.
HuffPo says you invented a zeppelin, and who are you compared to the warriors of truth we know as HuffPo?
PBS "News" Hour "journalist" is very, very angry that Trump... posted a respectful remembrance of Elijah Cummings?
Psst, little open secret: It's the Paul Ryan types who keep PBS and NPR funded. Everything for the Suburban Wine Moms.
Video about your eyes' and brain's own color-correction function -- in other words, explaining the "What Color Is This Dress?" controversy
Even if you remember the gist of the explanation about the blue-black or white-gold dress, this video is still sort of illuminating (pun intended)
They gimmicked up another case of colors looking different to different people. This video can help you see something in ambiguous lighting in two different ways.
By the way, it worked for me.
SJW Fascist: Let's ban children's Stormtrooper costumes Because Nazi and Because Trump
This is inspired by Ivanka Trump's son wearing the costume. Now it's #problematic and must be #cancelled.
Tim Pool: YouTube is suppressing all videos which mention James O'Keefe's sting videos, imposing Chinese-style speech restrictions to make James O'Keefe officially Unmentionable and erased from all public discussion
All hail our Social Media Monopoloy Overlords. Who just happen to be working to protect Legacy Media Overlords.
Tim Pool also notes in this video that Twitter is refusing to give primary challengers a Blue Check, which the incumbents already have, delivering a huge advantage to incumbents and a big disadvantage to challengers.
Cvckshed Query: My girlfriend is going to meet her favorite niche-band rock-singer from the 90s, and then she's going to fvck him until she sees crooked and can't walk right. Am I being a dick for being upset about this?
Hmm, the letter is signed "Definitely not JG [insert Simpsons reference]."
I wonder what that cryptic hint could mean. oh well I guess we'll never know.
Vid: "Hysterical" and emotional child Greta Thunberg needs to grow up some
Someone else made this point: Greta Thunberg is a sixteen year old girl. Yet her parents insist on dressing her as if she's 8. Including the little-girl braids. Is this part of the stagecraft?
The CW's heavily-promoted Batwoman -- a character blurbed by the network as "armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind" -- plummets in second week ratings, becoming the CW's lowest-viewed superhero show
Supergirl, which I also hear is a #WokeFest, also tanked in ratings.
I'm going to guess all of these shows are slipping in ratings. They're just not good. Update: Yup. The Flash show dropped in ratings too.
Let's check the difference between #Woke internet reviewers and the audience at Rotten Tomatoes: 69% positive for Batwoman from #Woke Mary Sue types, 12% from the audience.

New Blogroll Additions: A Ginormous Update

A lot of people say they're happy to add new additions to their blog rolls. Personally, I think that's a lot of bullshit.

Basically, linking other bloggers means giving attention to your direct competitors. When I go into a GM dealership, the salesman doesn't walk me over the Toyota lot and suggest that I check out the new Camry. And yet, in blogging, I'm supposed to just graciously deflect away all the attention and validation I so desperately crave to some other dude.

Oh, well. Just another one of those crazy "rules" our so-called "society" imposes on us, like the requirement that keep their pants on in mixed company. On this one point, I'm in perfect agreement with Ted Kennedy. It's not always a sexual thing-- sometimes it's just about comfort.

And convenience.

All of the new bloggers get the Ace of Spades HQ stamp of approval. They've got good links and interesting ideas. Some are analysts; some are humorists; some are incorrigible rapscallions. Unless I'm mistaken, there's even one or two ribald jackanapes on the list.

And some are Hugh Hewitt who, apart from being a fine commentator and an important voice in the conservative movement, could probably also finagle me Ann Coulter's phone number.

A few of these bloggers already are getting a lot of attention; others are going to garner attention. Some of these people might even wind up as beloved television hosts. Meanwhile, I -- long-suffering I -- will languish in unrewarded obscurity; the closest I'll ever come to celebrity will remain the time I inadvertently received a cable bill addressed to Tacklebury from the Police Academy movies.

If I didn't link you and you think I should have, drop me a line. I'm sure I missed people here and there. Also, some of the people I "welcome" below have actually been on the list for a couple of months, but I never actually welcomed them, so I'm welcoming them now.

For one blogger -- Sydney T of Sydney T's Weblog -- I offer both a welcome and an apology, for, although I've had her "linked" for months, I had a non-working link in the blogroll, which is sort of like having an Orbitrek in your apartment-- it looks nice and all, but it's utterly useless, except perhaps as a poorly-conceived towel-rack.

At any rate: I'm now pleased (not really) to welcome the following new additions to my blogroll.

(Musings of a) Fat Kid**

* Not who you think it is. A different Fat Guy. One who's actually worth reading.

** Also not who you think it is. A different fat kid, with better musings. Fat Kid has known relationship to Fat Guy, except perhaps that the first lives in Metropolis while the latter remains in Smallville.
