The last post worked, so I guess I'll try to post another one like that.







In the below excerpt, the guy says that the American elite started trade with China selling as something that would get China to "open up" and change its repressive government.

Instead, American elites found themselves admiring the "efficiency" of the Chinese tyranny.


That explains why we're where we are.

China must be made pariah. It's the only way to keep our repulsive,  traitorous "elites" from imposing tyranny on us.

They can't be trusted to have intercourse with China just as the "elites" of the 30s, 40s, and 50s couldn't be trusted to have intercourse with the Soviet Utopia.

Go figure that our "elites" went abroad and, like Kim Philby before them, found themselves with the treacherous desire to sell out their home country to their fabulous foreign frenz.

3 Comparing fully restricted N.Dakota with no restrictions S.Dakota is an interesting study. Especially when you learn that S.D had a 9 day bike rally event in August with ~500K attendees yet their case patterns fared better than their northern partners.\ ===========

16 It is sort of fascinating just how easily the "elite" are corrupted into admiring the autocratic systems in other countries. Maybe this is simply built into the human genome and American ideals are the anomaly. (I mean the idea of "America", since I'd say that a majority of people who live in America simply aren't Americans in any meaningful sense of the word.)

22   I was just looking at some "oligarch report" stuff last night. China is now the oligarch capital of the world. There is a "cities with the most billionaires" statistic, and Beijing now tops that list, with 100. NYC comes in at #2 now, with 99. In the top 10 list, China has three cities, and the US has only two. 
    China's three cities are Beijing, Shenzen, and Shanghai. Hong Kong is also in the top 10, and if you count that, China has four. In the US, NYC is one. Care to guess what the other one is? 
   It's clear the global oligarchy is seeing the future in China and are setting up shop there.

If all my hopes are dashed I at least hope each city gets thier own rooftop koreans, who keep the burning contained to the areas all these criminals are from,  and if they stray outside the get a dose of justice to the head.

Our whole state went to Phase 3 on March 22 (I think) which is 50% capacity at restaurants, in-person spectator events at 25%, some other stuff I can't remember. Phase 2 busts us back down to 25% at restaurants and other events.

I've been doing my best in my own way to do that for years. I've always tried to buy American first, and failing that "not made in China" second. It isn't always easy, but I redoubled my efforts a year ago.

No he didn't, you lying cocksuckers. He said that every American can get the vaccine by April. Because he is not of the authoritarian left and he didn't have it in his mind that the way to go was to force everyone to get the vaccine whether they wanted it or not.

Hang the first 50.  Make the next 50 dig the graves by hand.  Make the next 50 carry the dead bodies (without body bags).  Hang every one that complains and work your way through the list.

Offer the survivors as chattel to the gangs at Federal prisons.
Soon, no more people wanting to be traitors.

88 My city which is not leftist by far is also trying to get rid of single family homes. But it is not for political reasons. It is for money. Developers can make more building up than out. Take a 1/4 acre lot and put 1 house on it vs putting 2 triplexes on it. If you are a developer you are salivating at this. And since developers run city councils what they want is what they get.

101 From below thread,post by Alberta Oil Peon. The DC medical examiner said that Ashlii Babbitt died of a gunshot wound to the shoulder and it was a homicide. 
That it was a homicide was never in doubt, she was deliberately shot with a handgun at close range. Gunshot wound to the shoulder seems odd, unless the bullet went through one of the major arteries.

Lefties have a severe "belong in the club" mentality. I don't know what it is, but they really need to feel accepted, and you can see this behavior manifest all the time. That's why they always talk like they just KNOW everybody agrees with them. So, they'll start talking about how shitty Trump is, or that you've got to be an idiot to believe in some guy in the sky.

That's also why they're the first to start groveling if they think they said something wrong. Being cancelled is a fate worse than death for them. I'd assume I'm not alone in that I'll happily tell somebody to go fuck themselves, and not give a rat's ass what they or anybody else thinks about me.

117 88 My city which is not leftist by far is also trying to get rid of single family homes. But it is not for political reasons. It is for money. Developers can make more building up than out. Take a 1/4 acre lot and put 1 house on it vs putting 2 triplexes on it. If you are a developer you are salivating at this. And since developers run city councils what they want is what they get."
and here's how that plays out - the Developers and their pals on the City Council all make millions; they all use their money to move far far away to the coast or something, and in 30 years or so, being a city of nothing but low income renters who have no incentive to keep up their property, the place turns into another shithole like Gary, Indiana.
The people doing it know this, and they don't care, because they're planning to get the hell out as fast as they can.

123 The house I grew up in was built in the 70s and yeah the streets were much wider compared to suburban streets today. The cost of land relative to today was much lower, even adjusted for inflation. So developers could give you that extra foot or two width on a street. Today that extra land costs too much to do that.

Speaking of which - don't know what gas is going for in the sane parts of the country, but here in CA we're around $4.50 in parts of the bay area now. I'm guessing that we'll be seeing $5.00/gal by June.

It's stabilized at about $2.45 in my area of Texas. But it's that generic slop, not the artisanal craft gasoline you sophisticated Californians use.

USNI :

The Navy is considering changes to how it recruits sailors – including offering its aptitude test in another language – after receiving feedback from the fleet.

Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Mike Gilday said today the service is weighing the possibility for potential recruits to take the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery test, required from all recruits, in Spanish.

"Everybody has to have a command of the English language to serve in the U.S. military, but some people might do better in a written exam like that if it’s in Spanish,” Gilday said during a virtual forum hosted by the Center for New American Security.
"And so, why not offer that to get a better sense of what their attributes are – what their aptitude is – so that we place them in an optimum career path in the Navy that turns it into a win-win for them and for the institution.”

In addition to adding a Spanish-language option, the service is evaluating how it uses standardized test scores to screen candidates for its ROTC program. Gilday noted that the current SAT score average for the program is 1450, but the requirements may have inadvertently hindered the service’s recruitment of minority applicants.


What could possibly go wrong?   I'm glad I served long ago.  I could stomach this BS Navy now.

For the past few days EVERY talking head on the MSM "finance" shows has been talking about how the squeeze is over, and the Reddit types are selling their shares--obviously coordinated (and false) message. 
 They're panicking because this is going to bankrupt all the bad players--it should have already, save that Yellin/Powell are making dumb, desperate moves trying to drive the price down so as to save the hedge funds.
But it aint working; the retail investors are holding and waiting it out.

178 BLM bitch better be prepared to be disappointed, because Chauvin's lawyer is chewing up the prosecution's case, which so far amounts to little more than a bunch of idiot bystanders crying about how the cops were so mean to George Floyd, and some clueless "experts" who don't know what they're talking about (which also applies to the bystanders, BTW).
The prosecutors haven't even presented a coherent theory about how Floyd died, and we're already in week two of their case. Either Floyd was "crushed" to death (by a 140 pound cop who left no trace of any injury on Floyd's neck), or he died from positional asphyxia -- that is, he died because the cops kept him lying down and wouldn't let him sit up.  (Never mind the fact that Floyd complained seven times that he couldn't breathe while he was still on his feet, and never mind that the tox report showed he had 3x the known lethal amount of fentanyl in his system, combined with methamphetamine, and that he had a severely diseased heart with 75% blockage in one of the arteries, and his lungs were filled with fluid on autopsy, fluid that would not have magically disappeared even if cops had let Floyd sit up).

Makes perfect sense. Who needs to hear, understand and acknowledge orders and communicate problems using a common language? It isn't like there are any stresses during combat that would result in such issues becoming deadly instead of merely inconvenient.

Did you know that to fly internationally - anywhere, not just in the US - you have to speak English at least enough to communicate with ATC? And that if you're on ATC at international airport, you have to speak English at least enough to communicate with pilots? That if anyone uses a language other than English, either party can demand English and it must be used? This is because air travel is dangerous and rapid, clear communication and coordination helps prevent disasters.

But that's just commercial air travel. Moving around city-sized ships, launching airstrikes, shooting missiles off and storming beaches is much easier and less error-prone, apparently.

That they may hear?

Behold, their ears are closed

And they cannot listen.

Behold, the word of the Lord has become a reproach to them;

They have no delight in it.

255 Re: Fauci and masks. He's a moron, plain and simple. Actually, he's either a moron or evil.... or probably both. Anyone who's flown commercial in the last year (I've done so more than 10 times) can see the BS on every flight. Airline flights were NEVER stopped or even restricted. Despite the anomalies that make the news, on most flights nobody cares if you take your mask off... to eat, drink.... whatever. And all passengers are crowded elbow-to-elbow for 2, 3, 4 or more hours; right next to total strangers. This condition persisted for the entire pandemic. Yet, Faux-chi doesn't want us to dine indoors at a restaurant? Where we'd only be for 2 hours tops; and where you always have much more distance from total strangers. The hypocrisy and gaslighting are epic and infuriating. Also, don't forget last summer when all the so-called "experts" said it was wonderful and okay that thousands gathered in the streets to protest. Disgusting double standards....

258 I don't think any of that actually matters.  For this trial at least.  I suspect they already have the guilty verdict decided and wouldn't be surprised if the defense figures that too.  And all they're doing is laying out the case to get it overturned on appeal.
____________

I don't think Chauvin will be acquitted, even though the prosecution is doing a shitty job of making a case against him.  There are too many "social justice" wannabe types on the jury, people who wanted to get picked so that they could vote to convict the raaaaacist cop who "murdered" poor George Floyd (no matter what the evidence showed) so that they could brag to their lefty friends about how they were "part of history" and made sure there was "justice" for poor George Floyd!
But I do think that a hung jury is a real possibility.  There are a few jurors who might actually realize that there is no case here, and the only reason George Floyd is dead is because he swallowed a pocketful of fentanyl/meth speedballs when he saw the cops approaching him to question him about the fake $20 he had just used in the convenience store, and his badly diseased heart just couldn't cope with the drug onslaught.
It only takes one juror to hang a criminal jury.
