Saint George of the Holy Fentanyl says, "I ate too many drugs."


 

The lunatic, on-tilt media can't stop obsessing:


Brotherfuckers Posting Their L's Online:


Unfunny ugly zealot Samantha Bee explains that there's nothing funny about Biden -- not his Sundowning, and not his Busy Fingers -- so of course this alleged professional comedienne feels no pressure to "make jokes just to make jokes:"


Bee joined journalist Dan Rather on his SiriusXM program and the left-wing veteran newsman asked, "Do you, or do you not, find yourself sometimes at least tempted to kind of pull your punches?"

"In other words, you, myself, and a lot of people, more or less free-swingers against President Trump," Rather continued. "But now that Biden is in, I don’t know, do you find yourself sometimes saying, ‘Oh boy, there’s a nasty comedy bit I can unload on Biden,’ but saying to yourself, ‘I approve of him so much I’m going to pull this punch?’"

"I can’t deny that that has happened, I think that’s probably true across the board," Bee said. "You’re like, ‘OK, well, we could be making jokes about the infrastructure plan,’ but in general, I’m like, ‘Wow, this is great.' Why would I purposefully undermine something that seems to be a great idea, pretty much across the board?"

Two Yemeni Terrorists Arrested at Mexico Border, Despite Assurances from Democrats and Media That This Is All Republican Propaganda
— Ace



At least two Yemeni nationals who were placed on the FBI's terror watchlist have been arrested in California after crossing illegally from Mexico into the United States.

The two unnamed men - one 33, the other 26 - were detained over the last three months in the Calexico area of California.

The captures were made by U.S.Customs and Border Protection agents assigned to the El Centro Station.

CBP said in a statement on Monday that the two men were on a U.S. government watchlist for terrorism suspects, and were also named on a 'no-fly' list.

'Part of the Border Patrol's mission states we will protect the country from terrorists,' said Chief Patrol Agent Gregory K. Bovino.

'These apprehensions at our border illustrates the importance of our mission and how we can never stop being vigilant in our everyday mission to protect this great country.'

The news will likely be seized upon by Republicans, who are using the current surge in migrant arrivals to attack Joe Biden, and who have always warned that terrorists could be among those entering illegally and evading detection.


So much seizing.

Asa Hutchinson Cvcksplains His Corporate-Friendly Position on Chemically Castrating Children
— Ace

As Tucker Carlson accurately tells him: "You're pro-choice on chemically castrating children. What changed?"




Jazz Shaw at Hot Air writes:

Hutchinson tried to argue with Tucker over the contents of the bill, saying that if the bill only addressed chemical castration (puberty blockers), "I would have signed the bill.” He went on to expand that definition, saying that if the bill were only about "procedures… sex reassignment surgery, I would have signed that bill.” But what else of any significance is left in the bill aside from those procedures? He kept describing the bill as being "overly broad” and coming between a doctor and a patient. But that’s precisely the line that Democrats use when arguing against laws limiting or banning abortions. And isn’t a prohibition against surgical procedures or the prescription of drugs also "coming between a doctor and their patient?” (The things he claims he would have been fine signing off on.)

Tucker really hounded the Governor on this, returning to questions about the lack of research data on the long-term effects of these procedures on children. But as much as Hutchinson tried to claim that he "would have signed” a bill that only prohibited the surgeries or drugs, he then went on to give a textbook liberal explanation of why it’s "important” for parents and children to have these options. Honestly, my head was spinning by the time the interview was over and Tucker Carlson was obviously disgusted by the time he signed off.

Shaw notes that Hutchinson is "term-limited" and therefore politics are not a reason for this.

No, but the fact that he'll be needing a new high-paying job next year very much holds a clue to his behavior.

For anyone who's a governor, the only possible future career paths are the presidency, the academy, or, of course, serving on the boards of corporations.

Sure, mere Congressmen can become sleazy lobbyists, but that's too low-rent for a former governor.

Hutchinson has never been discussed as a potential president and has no entree into academia. Particularly now that the academy has purged all non-Marxists. Certainly you can't be a Republican serving in a university's administration.

That leaves the Corporate Parachute for Asa.

Now, you're not going to believe this wild coincidence, but one of the largest retailers in human history, Walmart, just happens to have its headquarters in Arkansas, and, you're definitely not going to believe this next coincindence, Tom Walton, an heir to the Walmart fortune, has very strong -- oddly strong! -- opinions on the gender of children.

Could there possibly be some connection here? Certainly Tucker Carlson seems exceptionally skeptical -- he says as much -- when Hutchinson claims he was not contacted by any corporate interests, not a single one, on this issue. Including, specifically, Walmart.

And yet Hutchinson knows Tom Walmart and Tom Walmart is extremely interested in children's putative right to participate in genital cosplay.

The Ruling Class, like the Ruling Class all throughout history, is extraordinarily focused on the sexual liberation of children.

And as was almost surely the case with Kristi Noem -- the word was passed to Hutchinson that his future corporate career could be derailed in a hurry if he didn't play ball with the trans lobby.

Whether the word is being passed by a corporate donor himself -- doubtful -- or, more likely, one of his lobbyists or lawyers, the word is being passed. Big money if you veto this bill, no job prospects if you don't.

This is a system of direct bribery of high public officials by megacorporations and it must be stopped.

And also, someone at some point has to record the threats and promises being made to him or her by corporate fixers.

And then a lot of very wealthy people need to go to prison for ten, fifteen years per conspiracy and bribery charge.

Public corruption is one of the many crimes the FBI and DOJ no longer bother prosecuting. 

Because the Ruling Class forbids it.

And no one can be considered for president who has not proven his willingness or even eagerness to tell the suborners and bagmen of the Ruling Class to go fuck themselves dead.

Publicly.

The Morning Rant 04-07-2021 [OregonMuse]
— Ace Open Blog


The rant is going to be somewhat abbreviated today as I seem to be spending most of my time wrestling with this new software.

I don't know about you, but I'm really getting tired of this:



So, just like Kristi Noem did last week, Hutchinson managed to invent a reason why the very issue the progressives were hitting on the hardest is not worth fighting. Or, perhaps, it is worth fighting just as long as someone else does it, not them. And aren't they supposed to be the best of the conservative wing of the Republican party? Not like those namby-pamby RINOs like Romney and Collins and Murkowski, Hutchinson and Noem are supposed to be rock-ribbed conservatives with spines of steel, right?

Maybe. But not when it counts. Never when it counts

Just when you need them the most, they're nowhere to be found. Just like Mike Pence during the post-election brouhaha. At the precise moment when his voice might have counted for something (his political future, if nothing else), he disappeared. He was last seen running for the tall grass. I can't wait until he runs again in 2024. It'll be fun watching him getting jeered at and heckled at every campaign event.

"This not the hill to die on" they loudly proclaim as the country continues to slide down the slippery slope. (h/t Pi Man)

The Morning Report - 4/7/21 [J.J. Sefton]
— Ace Open Blog


Good morning kids. Wednesday and while there are so many things being inflicted on us that in their own right could send even a marginally aware low-information observer into paroxysms of foaming-at-the-mouth rage, this morning, after reading the lead story, I'm just beside myself. It's the world's oldest hatred and once again, tragically and horrifically, it comes straight out of the flapping upper chin exhaust hole of a Jew -- in name only:


"American Jews are now part of the ownership class," Weingarten said. "Jews were immigrants from somewhere else. And they needed the right to have public education. And they needed power to have enough income and wealth for their families that they could put their kids through college and their kids could do better than they have done." 


"What I hear when I hear that question is that those who are in the ownership class now want to take that ladder of opportunity away from those who do not have it," she said.


Does this filthy shit-whore not even realize that what she just spewed is in the top five (among scores) of the most hideous anti-Semitic tropes? The fact is, it's not that Weingarten is unaware of her lineage but that she is absolutely aware of her politics. To go into an exploration of why those born Jewish become the worst kind of atheists and totalitarians would take days (I refer you to a well-known work on the subject by Norman Podhoretz Why Are Jews Liberals), but there is one underlying factor that I think plays a not insignificant part and also explains the current festering plague of woke consuming society: self-preservation. 


No doubt Randy Weingarten is a true believer. While her bilge is of the lowest variety, intended to resonate with the lower classes that are beholden to her fiefdom of the AFT, specifically the non-white urban poor, (see also Hank Johnson referring to Israeli Jews as "termites", Trayvon White claiming Jews control the weather to make money and oppress blacks, and of course the many musings of Sharpton, Farrakhan, Wright etc. ad nauseam), there is no real difference to what she says and does to that of, say, George Soros who moves in a more upper crust milieu, shall we say, when he denounces and actively works for the destruction of the State of Israel. And for those new to this site, we add the prefix Nazi collaborator to Soros' accursed name for good reason; as a teen in Nazi occupied Budapest in 1944, he and his father who had both renounced their Judaism years before actually profited off the expropriated money and belongings of their Jewish neighbors that they helped ship off to Birkenau. 


Self-preservation. "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em," if you will. And there's no better way to "join 'em" than to out Joo-hate the gentiles at it. Is this what we are witnessing with the BLaM-tifa garbage? Forget what the Democrats have given them under and in some cases over the table directly from the US Treasury; they have a war chest (emphasis on the word "war") upwards of $1 billion direct from the CEOs and CFOs of some of our biggest corporations. Yes, as I have speculated in these pages, that there are indeed braindead true believers in the C-suite, but there are also those who fork over the dough-re-mi in the hopes that the tiger will eat them last. 


Whether it's Delta's Ed Bastian blasting voter integrity laws as racist, Coca Cola's James Quincey insisting on racialist brainwashing for his employees or Randy Weingarten vying for "Kapo" di tutti capi among the Jew-hate set, the motivations are essentially irrelevant. With the SPLC now defining "hate" as anyone and anything opposing everything Democrat-Socialist, we are all Jews now.

Fauci Once Again Predicting Death to Red States Permitting Normie Activities
— Ace

Texas dropped the mask requirement a month ago.


Fauci predicted a spike in covid infections in two weeks.

It didn't happen.

He now says -- like any prognosticator of Doom, telling his cult followers that the end is nigh -- that Judgment Day is still coming, we just have to give it some more time.

It's late, but it's on the way.

He says that the situation is "complicated."

Strange, the situation was very simple and easily forecasted when he issued his earlier false prophecy.

But now it's "complicated."

Meanwhile, the left continues giving no fucks about massive BLM Arson Parades, nor the daily scrum that antifa gets into with cops and citizens trying to drive to the supermarket.

Prune-Faced Leathren Whore Lisa Murflonski Now Trailing Republican Challenger Kelly Tshibacka By Ten Points
— Ace

As a commenter alerted us a month ago, Alaska changed its voting system to a jungle primary, in which every candidate competes against each other in the primary, regardless of party, with the top two vote-getters advancing to the general election.

There's another twist, too: You can indicate your *second* choice, and if your first choice doesn't have the votes to go to the top two, your vote will go to your second choice.


This seems almost designed by Alaska's establishment to make sure that the liberal Democrat posing as a Republican Lisa Murflonski always advances to the top two run off, because Democrats will naturally choose her as their second choice.

So she's probably guaranteed a position in the top two.

But the actual Republican in the race is beating her by a fair amount, a Republican polling company finds.

At the Daily Mail:

Alaska GOP Senator Lisa Murkowski is now TRAILING her Republican challenger by nearly 15 points after voting to convict Trump in his second impeachment trial

...

Polling from theGOP polling firmCygnalfound thatTshibaka was leading in an all-party primary, taking 33.6 per cent of the vote, compared to Murkowski's 18.8 per cent.

Al Gross, an independent who was the Democratic nominee for Alaska's 2020 Senate race, came in third with 17.6 per cent.

 


 

 

Tshibaka, Alaska's Commissioner of Administration, is viewed favorably by 61 per cent of both Trump voters and Republicans.

 

 

Murkowski, on the other hand, is only viewed favorably by 10 per cent of Republicans, the poll found. Another 87 per cent of Republicans have a negative view of the incumbent.

 

 

With voters from all parties, Murkowski is viewed favorably by 33 per cent and unfavorably by 63 per cent.

 

Maybe Murflovinski is now regarded (accurately) as simply a Democrat so that we can expect she will get the usual Democrat vote share, plus a bit because she's an incumbent and because her face looks like the cover of the Necronomicon.

Recently Resigned Matt Gaetz Aide: I Left Gaetz's Employ For Personal Reasons. But the National Media Lied and Said I Was a Witness to Sexual Improrpieties.
— Ace

I really wish those on the right who are joining yet another political op against a Trump supporter would put their own sexual hang-ups about unmarried men being required to live like celibate monks until marriage.


Matt Gaetz has ZERO accusers. Zero. This  bullshit seems to come from people who are trying to extort him.

And the op includes putting out rumors to the press that a guy who left Gaetz office for entirely unrelated reasons actually left because he was witness to unspecified perversions.

I would think by this point that people would begin to be at least suspicious that they might be watching another Kavanaugh Op in action, but some people just seem to want to vindicate their own notions of sexual chastity, and join with the left when the smear someone with unproven accusations.

Unproven accusations? Shit, these accusations are currently *unaccused.*


Reported by @mattzap:

I spoke via phone with retired Air Force Capt. Nathan Nelson, Rep. Matt Gaetz's former director of military affairs who is scheduled to hold a press conference now-ish on a recent contact he had with the FBI. Here's what he told me:

On Wednesday, a day after the NYT reported on the Justice Dept.'s investigation into Gaetz, Nelson said two agents came to his home in Northern Florida. They told him they had info from the "national media" that he knew of illegal activities involving Gaetz & had quit over it


But by Nelson's account, that was not true. He told me he had no knowledge of Gaetz being involved in illegal activities, & had left the office for other reasons. "He’s always been very, very professional in his public life,” Nelson said of Gaetz.

Nelson said he invited the agents in and they talked for two hours. "I went into detail about the extent of my relationship with Congressman Gaetz, from the time he was a state rep, and when we first met, to my tenure as director of military affairs," he said.

He said the agents did not tell him what "illegal activities" they believed he knew about involving Gaetz. "I was convinced that ... when they left, I felt they were convinced I had no knowledge of any illegal activity," Nelson said.

The agents were from the local FBI field office in northern Florida. Nelson said after the interview, he contacted Gaetz's office to ask if there was anything more he should know, and to tell the office what the FBI had asked him about.


Nelson said he wanted to hold the press conference essentially to pre-empt what he viewed as a false report that he knew about illegal activities involving Gaetz. He told me, though, that no media had contacted him about such a report; he was hearing that 2ndhand from the FBI


At the presser, which just ended, Nelson seemed to draw a parallel between the secondhand allegation about his knowledge & the allegations against Gaetz. "I'm saying the allegations that named me were baseless...that kind of reflects on the allegations against Congressman Gaetz

Nelson also told me he believed other former staffers and interns were being contacted by the FBI, but he could not provide any names. He said he was not upset with the FBI reaching out, but instead, was concerned that media would report something about him.

At the press conference just now, Nelson said he remains "loosely affiliated" with Gaetz's office as a "military advisor," but has not spoken with the congressman in several months. He said he's had no contact with the FBI beyond that which occurred on Wednesday.

Maybe we should all wait until there's one actual accuser before all running like panicked horses every single time the left starts shooting off (blank) pistol shots to get us running in the direction they want.
