Well, Malcom X warned us years ago in unequivocal words to beware of the white liberal. That was Malcom's assessment of the real threat to the black people. Anyway....

More common ground with Bill Maher. Video clip. Start at 5:30 to catch last two minutes. I call the Left ‘glum lot.’ Bill M calls them the fun suckers; they suck the fun out of everything. I give credit where credit is due.

I suppose exhibit A would be the former underground fm station’s News Misdirector going full blown ape because so Bikers for Trump were personally invited to the WH, a few of which wore leather vests embossed. with the i age of a woman proudly displaying her bare naked sweet maiden breasts with a cat fish gun hanging from her firm taunt nipples. Oh, the moral outrage! Ban it! Immoral! The nerve of Trump to associate with those biker vets. Shame, shame, shame.

Gotta love the pure bullshit from Biden and cronies.
Biden's all for "infrastructure". Yet on day one, kills the keystone pipeline.(Hint,,, that's infrastructure)
A major fuel supply system gets hacked... "we don't get involved in private company affaires." See day ONE....

Miss Trump yet?

Don Bessee

Its as obvious as the weakness of the socialist dems -

I’m going to say this: I believe the cyber hacking in the U.S. Southeast is absolutely linked to the Hamas shooting war on Israel. I see it all of one piece, and President Biden is being tested. And so far, he has not shown any strength.

Look, these ransomware cyber hackers are in fact, Russian cyber hackers. As Gen. Keane said earlier today, they may be moonlighting, but make no mistake, they are Russian cyber hackers, and this is their boldest strike yet. And if we don’t do something about it fast, much more is coming. That’s point number one.

As far as Hamas is concerned, Hamas, of course, a terrorist state of Iran. Iran, itself, is a terrorist country. Now, who’s Iran’s biggest backer? You guessed it – Russia. At every turn, Russia makes mischief on behalf of Iran and against the U.S., and Israel, and the Abraham Accords.

By the way, let’s give China some credit too, because they are a large financier and oil buyer of Iran. You may say my view is far-fetched, but I don’t think so. Rookie Presidents get tested, it happens all the time. And so far, I’m not seeing President Biden stand up for Israel. Nor am I hearing him blast Iran. Nor am I hearing him hold Russia accountable. See, there’s a pattern here. They are knocking us back and forth, Mr. Biden is just kinda taking the punches.

Welcome home, Rebanes! Glad you could freely travel as that is not a possibility for many now-a-days.
Be sure (once you unpack and unwind) to pen a few thoughts on the "lockdown" as seen by you on your travels.

Walt. It happened under Trump and Barr’s watch. Where are the prosecutions for the so-called Russian Hoax and Spygate. How come Barr didn’t do anything?.?. (a paraphrase’

Answer: Dud, I think Barr appointed a Special Counsel named Durham to look into the matter. Still on the clock today. No way would Biden fire a Special Counsel looking into things....things that may go back to Uranium One. It’s all the same players. There are a lot folks who have a lot to loose biggy.

Boy, tying one of Hunter’s business deals to a Communist Party Member and bigwig member of the Government of China was kind of sweet. Raid Rudy! The Russians hacked the pipeline! Rudy is under the spell of Russian Disinformation, a tool of Putin! Hillary was right all along, lol. China good, Russia bad. Black and White. Don’t look a China. You must hate Asian people if you darn take a sideways glance that way. Forbidden.

Misdirected misinformation....and always accuse the Republicans for exactly what they are doing.

Anyway.....I did consider the possibility that Earth First! is back in action as one possibility of the pipeline hack early this morning. Once again I am not alone. It’s the spawn of the French Green Party. What’s next? Hey, where are the Underground Weathermen? Guess they have moved to Portland, Seattle, New York, Chicago..someplace, but I digress Earth First!......then mine the other planets.

'Ignoring Lie Emboldens Liar'...

- Liz Cheney


A lesson your father benefitted from mightily!


Buh bye then.......

Bill Tozer

This day in history...two days ago.

‘Book Burning at Midnight, May 10th, 1933’

“At the stroke of midnight on May 10th, 1933, the National Socialist German Students Union ignited a bonfire that—in the American imagination, at least—would never entirely flicker out. Illuminated by floodlights and flames, broadcast live on German radio, filmed by the newsreels, and rewound in archival documentaries ever after, the book burning by the Nazis, a festive confab held at 62 institutions of higher learning throughout Germany, was a picture-perfect metaphor for totalitarian thought control.”....

..... “Emil Ludwig—burned for literary rascality and high treason against Germany!”

“Sigmund Freud—for falsifying our history and degrading its great figures!”


“Eric Maria Remarque—for degrading the German language and highest patriotic ideal!”

And so on. “German education has been purged of smut and dishonesty,” declared student leader Herbert Gutjahr, well-satisfied at the estimated 20,000 volumes being turned to cinders.2

After the incantations by the students, a guest speaker took to the rostrum to deliver the centerpiece flame speech. Dr. Paul Joseph Goebbels—PhD in Romantic Literature, failed novelist, and Reichsminister for Popular Enlightenment and Propaganda—was delighted to officiate at the incineration of the print-based strain of what he called entartete kunst (“degenerate art”).

https://quillette.com/2021/05/10/book-burning-at-midnight-may-10th-1933/

Cancel culture is nothing new. Those frisky students at our institutions......of ‘higher learning’.

re fish 808am - In LizC's favor, she does admit that her attitude toward Trump does not represent the majority of Republicans, and therefore, she did not belong in the the party leadership position she had. She has also promised to continue working against the resumption of Trump's political career.

FCC Commissioner Blasts Democrat Complaint Against Fox News Affiliate: FCC Is Not ‘DNC’s Speech Police’

Money quote: “It is particularly troubling that a public official would work to silence reporters that are investigating her work at a time when federal prosecutors have already opened a criminal investigation into her activities.”
————
Carr’s full statement said:

The State’s Attorney’s Office, led by Democrat Marilyn Mosby, has launched a chilling and direct attack on free speech and journalistic freedom. The complaint her office filed with the FCC asks the Commission to censor a newsroom simply because journalists are doing their constitutionally protected jobs and shining a light on the work of the State’s Attorney. Invoking the power of the state to silence journalists for unfavorable coverage strikes at the very heart of the First Amendment.

It is particularly troubling that a public official would work to silence reporters that are investigating her work at a time when federal prosecutors have already opened a criminal investigation into her activities.

Indeed, the day after the State’s Attorney’s Office filed its complaint with the FCC, the targeted newsroom was awarded four prestigious Regional Edward R. Murrow awards for journalism excellence, including for one of its stories covering the work of the State’s Attorney’s Office.

The State’s Attorney’s Office complaint alleges that there is ‘troubling, abhorrent, and outright dangerous’ conduct going on here. They are correct in this respect—it is the conduct of the State’s Attorney’s Office that is troubling, abhorrent, and outright dangerous.

Yet this complaint is part of a recent and troubling surge in efforts by Democrat officials to pressure the FCC and its regulated entities into censoring news coverage and political speech that Democrats don’t like. The FCC should make clear that it will not operate as the DNC’s speech police. That is why the FCC must dismiss this complaint with prejudice by the end of today. No journalists should have a complaint like this from their city’s top prosecutor hanging over their newsroom.”

The situation with Trump and the Republican party being infatuated with him is a dream come true for the Democrats.

Oooopsie let the truth out about pipelines -


Granholm also said the Colonial pipeline, which runs from Texas to New York and is similar to the recently canceled Keystone XL pipeline, is the premiere way to pump petroleum into communities.

"So this particular area of the country there – this is why we have doubled down on ensuring that there’s an ability to truck oil in – gas in," Granholm said. "But it’s – the pipe is the best way to go."

Granholm sparked backlash online due to her answer, particularly by conservative politicians across the country who are calling the secretary out on Twitter for Biden's decision to nix the Keystone pipeline.

As Gregory points out how the House and Sen. are split,(biggest losses for Lefties in the House) it brings up the argument again,, just how Biden was elected legitimately. If that was really the case,, LIBS should have cleaned the elective table on election day.. The law of statistics and probability point to Biden losing miserably.
No wonder LIBS are trying to stop ANY close look at elections and recounts.

On a lighter topic....

Ad Seeks To Place ‘A Pair Of Destructive Demon Cats Who Stink Up Your Home’

An unusually honest ad for a chihuahua described as “a chucky doll in a dog’s bod” managed to find someone willing to adopt the pet. My neighbor just put out a similarly honest ad for two cats she is fostering that had me laughing each time I read it. Can you help find a home for these cats? Here’s the note.

“Shadow and Midnight are sleek, strong, regal cats. The shape of their bodies, elegant posture, and ceremonial promenading suggest they are long-time descendents of the cats of Egyptian pharaohs or Siamese emperors. They rule the house quietly, only emitting the tiniest of mews. Their thick black coats show a sheen of health. They are good with kids, don’t mind dogs, and appear to be the ideal pets: friendly, playful, loving, loyal.”....

Midnight and Shadow destroy sleep. They always wake up early. Really early. I have successfully sleep trained 3 babies but may have met my match with this pair. No more sleeping in on weekends. Or ever.

The destruction is bad, but the stench is worse. Never have I smelled such foul odors. Their poop reeks in a gut-gripping, gag-inducing way. Toileting these cats has been a continual challenge. We had a cat for 19 years. She had one litter box in the basement. She was petite and neat and it was never a problem. These boys take multiple dumps a day and are finicky about the maintenance and placement of their litter boxes. They have peed on our couch and pooped on our rugs and our beds. We have responded by adding two additional litter boxes and a sheet of aluminum foil to the couch. We scoop each litter box a few times each day, because we fear that if the box is not clean enough, these boys may take their business elsewhere.

And, there is one other wrinkle with this pair. Shadow has pillow paw, a condition that will require daily medication for the rest of his life. Shadow is whip-smart and he does not like his medicine. It is a two-person job: you need one person to hug muscular Shadow, tightly wrapped straight-jacket style in a beach towel and another person to administer the syringe full of gooey greasy yellow medicine. Most times the medicine lands in Shadow’s mouth. Sometimes he spits the medicine in your hair.

Who will adopt this pair? Two families have tried. Both failed.

A search of archives reveals Empty Emery was posting Raw Story links on a daily basis, sometimes multiple times, leading up to the election (especially October) about Trump is a Traitor! and is in Putin’s blackmail back pocket, followed in January 2017 that Trump has no friends, the Republicans will force him to resign, and Trump really did not want to win the election.

I am still waiting for them, just once for Pete’s sake, to get it right. ‘Them’ meaning Raw Story and a former local news Misdirector. Ok, add the Huff-n-Puff Farting Post. Stupid is what stupid does....and continues to this very hour to be like a dog returning to its vomit.

I did like the Raw Stories back the then that the only reason he was even running for President (with 20 contenders) was because he really wanted to start a new cable show or network and running would give him some free publicity. He did not even want to win. Take it to the bank. That the raw facts, Jax.

What is it with the Insane Lefties obsession with Fox??? Obama spent the last 10-14 days of his term bashing Fox on the way out the door. It’s kinda creepy. Very recycled stuff, if you don’t mine me saying. Now the Governor of Florida is the worse person in the world....along with evil demonic Tucker Carlson and currently in the top spot is Josh Hawley...just in time for the release of his new book (heard its goooood) that is in the Top Ten sellers despite the fact that the ‘Finishers’ in the Cultural Revolution Mob getting publisher after publisher to refuse to publish it.

BLAME IT ON THE BUNNY
The Biden administration has struggled to account for April’s dismal jobs report. Yesterday one of Biden’s economic advisers, Cecilia Rouse, tried to explain the awful numbers without referring to any of the obvious culprits, e.g. workers being paid not to work. The problem, she said, was that Easter fell in March this year:

“I don’t know how that would account for a lack of hiring in April, but in any event, Easter was not in March, it was on April 4.

The Biden administration flails incompetently, the the Democratic Party press averts its eyes and pretends that all is well.”

NY TIMES: SLOW JOE GETTING SLOWER
The New York Times has a remarkable story out this weekend that offers its typical “behind the scenes” construction of how the White House operates—in this case, under President Biden. While the story tries to soften the blows with lots of fluff and filler, it paints a devastating picture of Biden for the careful reader. It explains he has a quick temper, takes a long time to make decisions, and needs to be heavily propped up by staff to function. It reminds us that Biden is indeed a creature of the Senate, where he mostly attended hearings, made speeches, fiddled with legislation, and seldom made any decisions that suggested executive skill (Quick—can anyone name a major piece of Biden legislation? The crime bill of 1994? Likely written mostly by the Clinton Justice Department. The bankruptcy reform bill of 2007? Likely written largely by Delaware-based banks. You get the picture.)

The tools of the propaganda ministry get caught again -

But a 2014 piece from the Atlantic written by a reporter in the region detailed a long and questionable history between the AP and the jihadist group, critics observed.

"When Hamas’s leaders surveyed their assets before this summer’s round of fighting, they knew that among those assets was the international press. The AP staff in Gaza City would witness a rocket launch right beside their office, endangering reporters and other civilians nearby—and the AP wouldn’t report it," the article reads.

The journalist at the time claimed that Hamas fighters would regularly "burst into the AP’s Gaza bureau and threaten the staff—and the AP wouldn’t report it."

They way things were going, Biden should have stayed the course. But nooo. Biden’s self inflicted “crises” are of his own making which is as clear to anyone with two brain cells left as the snort on EE’s face.....which he can’t see. Mercy.

When Biden floated his infrastructure bill, it did not mention cybersecurity. Odd. Trillions for other stuff like...well....not what any normal person would consider ‘infrastructure’ by any stretch of the imagination. That is until the Dems hijacked the English language again (common practice) and twisted, contorted, and redefined the meaning of infrastructure.

And yes, this post belongs in Scattershots.

Wicked Gretchen the Power Mad does what Overrulers do.

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer Unveils Plans To Shut Down A 65-Year-Old Pipeline

“Enbridge has refused to abide by Whitmer’s order, citing economic concerns. According to the Enbridge website, Line 5 transports roughly 540,000 barrels of crude oil per day. If the pipeline was shut down and tanker trucks were used to transport the oil, “an estimated 2,100 trucks would need to head east every day from Superior and travel across Michigan to transport what’s carried by Line 5. That’s the equivalent of 90 trucks an hour leaving our Superior Terminal.”

https://www.dailywire.com/news/michigan-gov-gretchen-whitmer-unveils-plans-to-shut-down-a-65-year-old-pipeline

Guess she didn’t get the news that suddenly out of blue, Dems realize pipelines are important. Better for the environment and all that stuff.

On a different topic Bidens approval ratings are solid at +12.4. More importantly they have not budged for three months showing his support is sustaining and solid. This is according to RCP Consensus which includes Rasmussen.

Now thats funny -

Lewis Country Store in Nashville, Tennessee is poking fun at rising gas prices under the watch of the Biden administration.

The store’s giant roadside screen is broadcasting a roll of memes underneath its pump pricing. One meme displays the bombshell image of the president’s son, Hunter Biden, smoking crack in a bathtub next to the caption, "hope gas prices don’t get too high."

Other memes include an image of Fox News host Tucker Carlson laughing and an empty gas gauge, using the "E" in the Biden-Harris logo.

Here Emery,, this is what you call a credible news source?
https://www.foxnews.com/media/cnn-adeel-raja-says-world-today-needs-a-hitler

"Outrage after social media users discover series of Hitler-praising tweets from CNN freelancer
The tweet turned out to be one of many in which Raja has praised Hitler

CNN panel worries about collapse of 'democratic principles' after Cheney ouster
CNN's Dana Bash admits to getting 'dramatic' after Rep. Cheney is voted out of No. 3 leadership spot.

Social media users are demanding CNN respond after discovering that one of their freelance contributors, Adeel Raja, who has written dozens of pieces for the outlet, wrote in a now-deleted tweet that "the world today needs a Hitler." After some digging, it turned out to be one of several messages Raja has posted praising the Nazi leader.

"The only reason I am supporting Germany in the finals - Hitler was a German and he did good with those Jews!" Raja wrote during the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Raja last had a CNN byline on Sept. 16, 2020. He still lists his affiliation with the network on LinkedIn."

And CNN is still REAL QUIET ....

If it's the electorate that you're interested in, the only poll that counts is Rasmussen (likely voters) and they have Biden at -1.

One thing I appreciate in life is brutal honestly from friend or foe, right or wrong. That’s why I like The Ragin Cajon and Bob Beckel.

Getting back for a further look at the polls Gregory always hides behind Rasmussen even though it's the only poll that shows weak support for Biden. They are one of 12 polls that make up the consensus poll that I monitor for movement. Again as of now support for Biden hasn't budged for three months at a solid 12.5 saying job well done. In comparison Trump at the same date of his first year-May 17 2017 in the same consensus poll had a negative polling of -14.4. That's an astonishing 28 point difference from Biden.

You can track down my numbers here. Follow the links to Trumps polling May 2017

And still you Trumpers think he's the one that will win back the Presidency and you are supporting a bogus organization called Cyber Ninjas to lead the recount in Arizona. The company has no experience in elections, and its CEO helped to spread “Stop the Steal” conspiracy theories in the run-up to the Capitol riot. Founder Doug Logan Logan characterized Cyber Ninjas’ participation in the recount and its overall mission as being Christian in nature. “As a Christian company, we also believe we have a responsibility to serve, as Christ served.

Unbelievable but true. Poor Repubs...How low can you go. It's a great gift to the Dems though who are cruising with Biden with solid approval and support.

Here's background from Slate:

Sure Walt. Anything that doesn't support your guy is fake news right. Do you deny that Cyber Ninjas is in charge of a so called recount in one County in Arizona? Direct quote from the founder that they are serving Christ in this endeavor.
