The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

"It is true that the United States wants to withdraw from the region, but Washington will then have given China, Russia and Iran unprecedented strength.... By removing the Revolutionary Guards from the list of terrorist organizations, Washington will grant Iran the freedom to move and act in the region in the context of a Russian-Chinese-Iranian alliance." Tarik Al-Hamid, Saudi journalist, former editor-in-chief of the pan-Arab Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper


Foreign policy is definitely foreign to the current American regime.


Quote II

"This ability to be able to transform yourself to [a] cat, to disappear and reappear, these things are possible within the dynamics of traditional African religion.

"Although [it] sounds illogical, like old wives' tales, however from what we have seen and heard, these things are possible," Jude Akanbi, a lecturer at the Crowther Graduate Theological Seminary in Abẹ́òkúta


Quote III

“I will go to jail before I pay a penny,” Stormy Daniels

Interesting to see what a bull butch dyke would do to you Stormy.

Quote IV

“Let’s be clear, Kamala Harris may be the dumbest person ever elected vice president in American history and that’s why people keep resigning.” Former Speaker of The House Newt Gingrich


But she knows how to wear knee pads. IYKWIM.

When the burning times arrive: Will the swamp burn? Or is it too slimey?

A Trump-Hating Backer of Biden’s Supreme Court Nominee Is Married to the Top J6 Prosecutor

Fatima and Matthew Graves are just another example of how high-powered interests in Washington collaborate under the radar to seek retribution against their political foes.

So what's his cute name for her, Fatty?

Am I being too harsh? She's a single mom with 2 kids and on maternity leave with what looks like child 3. She can't keep up with her power bill and it's the utility company's problem?

Josie Gagne was stumbling in the dark, sobbing while on the phone with an Enmax customer assistant, as she tried to locate the tiny orange button under the utility meter that would restore heat inside.

It was the shock that got her.

The young single mother with two kids under two returned home one winter day last year to find a note on her door from Enmax. She'd fallen behind on bills; the home was now on a limiter, capping her electricity.

The furnace was off and at that point, she had no idea what a limiter even was.

"I'm freaking out. I'm crying, thinking 'What am I going to do?'" she said.

"It's the middle of winter, it's still cold outside. How am I going to feed my children when my oven doesn't work?"

I have a couple of guesses on the following story. The cops involved were white. And the alleged perp is an inner city Yute straightening out his life.

Prosecutors in St. Louis, Missouri, declined filing charges against a man who allegedly attempted to carjack a marked police SUV while two officers were inside, according to police.

The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department sought charges of first-degree robbery, armed criminal action and resisting arrest against a 27-year-old suspect who allegedly tried to carry out the carjacking Saturday.

A spokeswoman for the police said Monday that the St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s office refused to file charges, the St. Louis Dispatch reported.

You know damn well had it been someone of Kyle Rittenhouse's complexion he would be in jail without bail.

Yesterday Buck Throckmorton had an excellent Monday Morning Rant about local school boards. If you missed it, I would recommend you to go back and read it. Problems with school boards? Thin skin, lack of backbones and unfathomable arrogance.

Watch What Happens When a Mother at a School Board Meeting Tries to Read Explicit Content Served Up to Students


In 2020, Cherokee County, Ga., voted for President Trump by a margin of nearly +30. It is full of families where men do the muscular jobs and own businesses that keep the lights on, the internet humming, and the toilets flushing. It has also seen a steady influx of white-collar professionals with young families fleeing the chaos leaching out of Atlanta. Residents fly American flags in the county as a matter of course.


There are more churches than bars, and high school football on Friday nights is still a thing. Yet viral video of a Cherokee County mom has surfaced. Many people who live there would be shocked to learn that the video below came from their local school board’s March 17 meeting. The parent alerted school board members to explicit content from a book available to students called Homegoing and got cut off by one of the members.


But local school board members aren't the only elected representatives who have a serious attitude problem. I give you the Village of Melrose Park, Illinois and it's mayor of 20 years.

Illinois Town "Issue[s] 62 Tickets to an Elderly Couple for Having Lawn Chairs in Their Front Yard"
Based on the allegations of the complaint, "[i]f this case were a Monell crime scene, [Melrose Park Village Mayor Ronald Serpico] left his fingerprints, footprints, and DNA all over the place.

(Later in the story)

That's when Mayor Serpico completely lost it. He lost his cool. He lost his temper. And if he has any ability to express himself without using expletives, he lost that too.

Mayor Serpico spewed the following missive: "I'm going to tell you something, you're really reaching me. So, do me a f*cking favor and sit down and shut the f*ck up. How's that? You little f*cking pr*ck. Go on, shake your f*cking head. You're nothing but a f*cking punk."

Michael Cozzi responded with a simple question: "What did I do to you?" That innocent question sent Mayor Serpico into the next stratosphere.

What he lacked in elegance—and in range of vocabulary—he made up for in directness: "You're a jag off! You look like a f*cking shine {a disparaging term for a black person} on 15th [avenue] because you're doing it to bust f*cking balls. That's what your doing. So, go f*ck yourself. Go f*ck yourself!"

Spare the rod and spoil the child. Or not? Wales bans physical punishment.

Wales Bans Physical Punishment Against Children, Including Smacking And Slapping

Isn't it strange that in most places the only humans you are legally allowed to hit are children?

As of March 21, all forms of physical punishment against children (such as smacking, hitting, slapping and shaking) is illegal in Wales.


Hmmm. I earned a few spankings over the years. And I deserved everyone. And according to my "Permanent Record" I turned out OK.

Not only does Psaki have the Kung Flu so does The Wicked Witch of New York. Hillary has the Kung Flu.

‘Well, I’ve tested positive for COVID,’ Clinton, 74, tweeted on Tuesday evening. ‘I’ve got some mild cold symptoms but am feeling fine.’

The former Secretary of State credited Covid-19 vaccines for her mild illness.

‘I’m more grateful than ever for the protection vaccines can provide against serious illness. Please get vaccinated and boosted if you haven’t already!’ she wrote.

Quite the wedding night. Make love not war. Genius Award Winners.

Hours after exchanging vows, a North Carolina couple exchanged blows at a Florida hotel, according to police who found the bride in a wedding dress covered in blood and the groom with injuries to his face.

Police were called early Sunday morning to the Hilton in Naples, where they encountered Stefanie Ginas, 32, in the hotel’s Salon room. Ginas’s wedding dress had “several blood spots down the front, and the left strap of her dress was torn,” according to a Naples Police Department report.

Ginas’s “face and chest were covered in blood, and she was crying,” cops noted.

Ginas’s mother told officers that the newlywed was involved in “some sort” of altercation with John Gerhard, 43, the man Stefanie had married earlier that evening.

Ginas told cops the couple had quarreled about her brother while in their hotel room, and that the dispute turned violent. Ginas suffered a “bloody nose, busted upper lip, and swollen eye during the altercation,” police reported.

Gerhard, who said that his wife head-butted him, had a cut on the bridge of his nose, swelling on his face, and dried blood on his pants.

Indiana's spineless governor: Doesn't get it.

Florida's governor does. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

The state of Florida is recognizing a woman who came in second place to Lia Thomas as the real winner of the competition.

On Tuesday, Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a declaration recognizing Sarasota, Florida, resident Emma Weyant as the true champion of the NCAA 500-yard freestyle swimming event she competed in.

Weyant came in second place to Lia Thomas, a biological male, in the Friday event. Thomas has competed in women’s swimming as a transgender woman.

Perusing the news is depressing. Hopefully this lifts your spirits a tad.
