Thanks Capitan once again for sending along Rich’s insights! Always SO informative!
Kamala visits Guatemala
Well, this did not go well. Instead of a reception by crowds of fawning locals, she was met with signs demanding she ‘go home’ and ‘Trump won’, and suggesting she fix her own house, and stay out of the house of Guatemala. No one was buying her talking points about addressing the ‘root causes’ of immigration, legal or illegal. Well, she did not handle this graciously. The president of that nation noted that while he had cracked down on crime and other problems, Kamala is ignoring those issues in her own back yard. It is safer to walk in Guatemala than in many US cities. That is saying something since just a few years ago, Guatemala had the highest murder rate in South America.
Judge James E. Plowman, jr. ordered the school that fired a teacher named Tanner, for expressing his views that allowing transgender men to compete in women’s sports was discrimination against actual women, against his faith, and an offense to God, to reinstate the man. The judge said that Tanner had First Amendment rights to speak his views, and that the school acted in a way that was ‘unnecessary and vindictive’. The school countered that they did not fire Tanner for his views, but because his expression of those views caused ‘disruption’. The judge did not buy that poor excuse.
In Boone County, Judge Richard A. Brueggemann struck down the edicts of Governor Andy Beshears regarding Covid mandates. especially masks. This was a permanent injunction, not subject to appeal or review or reinstatement after making minor changes. All of these actions were declared ‘unconstitutional’ and void.
Now, these mandates were set to expire Friday, anyway, and the Governor did not plan to extend them. But this ruling is important as precedent for actions all over the nation.
Trump revoked the right of TikTok to operate here, since it was an agent of the CCP. Biden just revoked this ban.
A man was filmed wandering down a residential street, trying door handles to see if he could enter. He appeared very drunk, and overweight. He went down one side, and up the other, as pedestrians watched, and moved away. Finally, someone opened their door, and this man lunged at the resident. The resident, however, was prepared, and armed. He shot this intruder, killing him. No charges will be filed, thanks in part to the clear video evidence.
This was the stuff used in the Colonial Pipeline hack. Crypto currency is not issued by governments, and governments hate this stuff – since they cannot control it, or steal it from citizens. Things like Bitcoin or Dogecoin are examples. Smaller scale things like coupons, bonus points, and rewards points are also examples of non-traditional currency. We should expect to see a lot more activity in alternative currencies.
He will not give up on his plan to vaccinate everyone, whether they want it or not. He just gave a ‘starter’ payment of $100,000 to Hiroyaki Matsuoka of the Jichi Medical University to develop mosquitoes infected with vaccines to be released into populated areas, and ‘vaccinate’ just about everyone. If successful, a million-dollar grant will follow. Of course, if this can be done with medicines, it can also be done with poisons. Both the Japanese and Germans did exactly that back in WWII. Japanese biowarfare experiments killed at least 250,000 Chinese, and continued to kill people for generations. Germans flooded areas that would breed mosquitoes, and unleashed diseases on the locals. They also poisoned crops, affecting others.
Bill , who is not a doctor, is intent on reducing the world population by 15%, to ‘save the planet’. Perhaps he might do well to remember that even though there are a lot more people on the planet today than a few years ago, food supplies and distribution has kept up, and in fact, more people are better fed today than at any time in known history. Most people do not live at subsistence levels today, when for most of recorded history, they did.
Bill is treading on dangerous ground. The unintended consequences could be beyond horrific. Back when I was a child, I lived overseas in a mosquito infested area. Every evening, the jeeps would come by spraying clouds of DDT, to control the mosquitoes. Of course, that effective chemical was banned a few years ago. Never mind that mosquito borne diseases kill ten times as many people than the DDT did. I, for one, do not want to breed ‘genetically modified mosquitoes’, even for good causes.
Did I already say this one? Seems that Burger King wants to celebrate Gay pride month. So, they took some cheap shots at Chick-fil-A over their stance, and Sunday closings. Then, to top it all off, they said that Burger King will donate a sum of money to gay pride groups for every Chick-fil-A sandwich sold. Anyone hungry for a chicken sandwich?
Fargo, North Dakota
This hotbed of racial strife saw one 23-year-old Arther Prince Kollie attack 14-year-old Daisy ‘Jupiter’ Paulsen. She was stabbed 25 times, beaten and strangled by this man. Then, he stole her backpack and phone. He was later captured, and she later died of her injuries. Wonder how the judge will rule in this case?
In another incident, a young black man was yelling racial slurs at an Asian police officer. When confronted over his behavior, the man said that ‘blacks cannot be racist’. Didn’t we hear Obama make that same argument?
President Macron was doing a meet and greet with the public, when a man slapped him across the face, yelling bad things about Macron’s policies. That is a serious insult in French culture, and, police took down this guy, and I think a couple of others with him, very fast. Guess the president is learning that at least some of the public does not agree with him.
Parents are getting concerned about Critical Race Theory in the schools. Many do not want their children indoctrinated with racism. Some have spoken up at school board meetings, and the board members have tried to shut them down. But, now, there is a new handbook for these parents, with instructions on how to fight this battle. It is called “Combatting CRT in your Community”. It comes from Parents and Citizens for Renewing America. Bet the leftists are getting worried, and plotting in dark back rooms how to fight back.
During the riots that followed a police shooting of a man found dead drunk at Wendy’s, where the Wendy’s was burned down, there were also many other injuries. Eight-year-old Secoriea Turner was shot and killed, as she sat in her parents car. Her family is suing the city, the mayor, and others for negligence, for allowing the riots to proceed without intervention. They did not agree that ‘armed vigilantes’ should be allowed to run rampant in this city. This could be a real landmark case. If the parents win, mayors all over the place will not sleep well – like Portland and Seattle.
Three years in the making, an FBI sting has sprung. This operation was known variously as ‘Ironside’, ‘Greenlight’, or ‘Trojan Shield’. It involved undercovers selling encrypted satellite phones to criminals, which the FBI had the keys and codes for. This allowed them to track and monitor the activities of more than 300 criminal gangs, in 18 countries. More than 800 people were arrested, and literally tons of drugs, weapons and cash were seized.
Meanwhile, back at home, the ATF is trying to re-define some guns. For many pistols, you can purchase a ‘stock’, so that it can be fired like a rifle. This improves accuracy. The ATF, with their devotion to disarming Americans, but not others, wants to classify such weapons as ‘short barreled rifles’, and apply restrictions to their sale and use. These guys never give up trying to bypass the Second Amendment.
He was planning to release his new self-praising book this November. It was to be called “Expect the Unexpected – Ten Lessons on Truth, Service and the Way Forward”. The irony of this, in light of all the email revelations and his endless flip-flopping, was just too much for the major retailers. Amazon and Barnes and Noble have dropped this book like a hot potato.
Did you know that the ‘excuse’ to do all these mandates was based on a PCR test to show the presence of Covid. Sadly, the test was badly flawed, with up to 97% false positives. Add in the ‘creative reporting’ of deaths, (how anyone could sell a gunshot wound to the head as a Covid death really stretches the imagination), and the distortion of cheap, alternative cures to expensive experimental vaccines should have made more people skeptical. HCQ had been a proven anti-malarial drug for 60 years or so, and effective on Covid, used in a timely fashion, at a dose of 200mg daily for 10 days. But, to discredit this treatment, tests were conducted using 8800 mg, and that was a toxic dose. Add to that, all the new regulations banning this as an over-the-counter drug, and requiring a prescription, then barring doctors from prescribing it, and you have a genuine conspiracy. But I digress. The evidence against both Fauci and ‘the cure’ is overwhelming, except to the superstitious and gullible.
Woke gone wild. The Seattle Department of Finance, in a rant produced by David Holmberg, called all cops ‘white supremacists’. Cops took exception to this, as you can well imagine. How long can that city stand, divided against itself?
Next time you hear someone claim “It’s all Trump’s fault” – ask them how they know this, and will they offer the proof. Those conversations could be interesting. Of course, the answer will always be ‘You is a racist’.
