Sunday Rant – 3918

PN:

Joe’s Comment – The onset of non-summer weather often exacerbates a feeling of dread in me.
My days (and nights) of loving snow and cold and bleak are long past.
My days (and nights) of liking snow and cold and bleak are also dim memories.
Conversely, my days (and nights) of resenting snow and cold and bleak grow with every Celsius degree the temperature drops.
There might be a connection with age….. or memory….. or desire……
However, I’m never without a Plan® –
As McWatt says (in Catch-22), “Oh well, what the Hell”.
Come on April!

 

United Nations
Joe and I have been pretty well disgusted with the discrepancy between the noble, lofty mandate of the UN and the actuality of down dirty corrupt UN reality.
Since the appointment of Nikki Haley as UN Ambassador, our view has become more hopeful.
This week, the UN received a double barrel blast from America.
Here is an incredible address from POTUS, DJ Trump:

There are (finally!) adults in the room.
Cockroaches start scurrying…..

 

SCOTUS Redux
Joe and I have watched with growing disdain the character assassination of Brett Kavanaugh by the Democratic Party.
These people are right on the border of not being people.
Their 11th hour attempted character assassination of a good man AND his family, not to mention the abuse of “just pawn in life”, Dr. Ford, tells us how low and desperate the Demonrats are, how craven their lust for power.
Literally, the Democratic party will stoop to the lowest low to achieve their political goals.  Literally, the Democratic party believes that any means to an end is fully justified, fully legitimate, fully defensible.
Watching the event unfold in real time led Joe and I to believe that the adults in the room were by and large Republican.  The Democrats, idealists to infinity, behaved like emotional meat puppets.  Logic, rationality, sequential timelines be damned.  Women MUST BE BELIEVED!…. Well, this particular woman.  Never mind the dozens of ladies sluts women who accused Bill Clinton of much worse behavior when he was a much older man with more gravitas and power.  To a woman, they were smeared, denigrated, threatened, belittled or prosecuted by that world class harridan, Hillarious Clitwon and her murderous band of ambulance chasers.
Who can forget the blue dress?
Joe says he wasn’t there and he knows all about it.
Yet Dr. Ford can’t remember even one salient detail of the most traumatic event in her life.  Outside of pointing at Judge Kavanaugh.
When you saw Dr. Ford “testify” did you not see that she is incapable of rational thought?  By the by, her “crowd funding” appeal has paid off quite handsomely.  Yikes!  Bad choice of words, Joe.  Better say quite beautifully…..
Joe says the Dems were simultaneously building their retreat (in the event they didn’t come across as the Defenders of Women™ they falsely promote themselves to be) by coaching this unstable woman with two lawyers legal assassins.  This  enables a plausible withdrawal of accusation, based on outcome.
Joe is a cynically biased bastard of a cynical cynic.
You don’t want to hear Joe’s response to the next two accusers.
A serial gang rapist?
A drunkard serial gang rapist?
Dear doG Democrats, go fuck yourselves.
You really do believe that destroying the Republic one brick at a time is in the best long term interests of “We The People”?
After 235 years of stellar performance, all of a sudden if a Democratic house, senate, and executive is not supported by a Democratic judiciary the world will end?
This sounds to me and Joe like the oft quoted line from Shakespeare – “the lady doth protest too much, methinks” (Hamlet, Act III, Scene II).  The emotionally driven Democratic Party is an hysterical woman, with vengeance in mind.
Another quote that seems apropos – “Heav’n has no Rage, like Love to Hatred turn’d, Nor Hell a Fury, like a Woman scorn’d.” (Act III, Scene II) from The Mourning Bride – William Congreve  (note 1: if you click the link, the line is the last of the scene, note 2: also Act III Scene II – co-inky-dink?)
Enter Hillarious Clitwon and the dark forces of the Foundation.
Joe and I watched many videos and read thousands of words after viewing the live interrogation.  The outrage of Sen. Lindsay Graham, the Judge Brett Kavanaugh righteous defense of his reputation and his family, the cold reptilian Democratic logic deniers – we saw it all.
Hand wringing aside, abuse of woman(en) aside, man’s inhumanity to man aside, what can we learn about what we cannot know because there is no evidence whatsoever that is conclusive…..
Another quote from The Mourning Bride – “Musick has Charms to sooth a savage Breast,” (Act I, Scene 1)
So what musick helps sooth Joe’s breast?
The commentator which we resonated with most (so far….) is Stefan Molyneaux.  Two videos, in this order:

Stefan M. has a logical approach that we found refreshing.  Good forensic review.
Joe says and I make the following points about what we’ve seen and heard and deduced –
– Dr. Ford has a mental problem, an illness (aside – who’s clinical psychoanalyst publicizes your personal information), an infirmary.
– If Brett Kavanaugh is who they insist, Joe and I have no idea of how to judge character.  The man is just whom he says he is in our estimation.
– So much for Christian belief (on the Demonrat team).  What is the primary teaching of Jesus’ followers?  Love.  Love and forgiveness.  Love your neighbor.  Love your enemy.  Pray for the salvation of souls.  Forgive them (and us!) our trespasses.  Seems that’s what Brett’s family was raised to do.
– So much for “reformation” and “rehabilitation”.  Even if two three (she was inebriated too, da?) drunken teenagers were goofing off and someone got frightened, seriously frightened, is this a “can’t change your spots” moment, or a bad choice made by young people who learn from a mistake?  Like the time we locked Ricky D. in the trunk of a car….. not knowing of his incipient claustrophobic tendency…..
Foul!  Shame! Learn!  Don’t do it again.
Joe says the progressive view is that criminals can be re-engineered into model citizens.  Except (of course) those that cannot be re-engineered into model citizens.  And who (or whom) determines who (or whom)?  The Demonrats of course.
Joe and I are not insisting nothing happened to this woman.  Joe and I are insisting she is not mentally stable.  Can’t fly?  Evidence says otherwise.  Can’t remember where, when, and how many, but knows beyond doubt who?  “Lie detector test” where she is asked only two questions, but nothing about Brett Kavanaugh?  Life long Demonrat with family ties to the nasty side of “collusion”.  WTF?
Where is this nasty coming from?
Try this on for size.
Someone is connecting dots….
This article shows a very ugly very deep very nefarious manipulation by the Clinton mob.
An honest (read: constitution focused) Supreme Court would make mincemeat of the bad dudes and dudettes (Joe is sexist!) if this information became public knowledge.  Read the article and be afraid.  Be very afraid.
A bit of the article –
…….”Now who is LISA BARSOOMIAN? Let’s learn a little about Mrs. Lisa H. Barsoomian’s background.
Lisa H. Barsoomian, an Attorney that graduated from Georgetown Law, is a protégé of James Comey and Robert Mueller.
Barsoomian, with her boss R. Craig Lawrence, represented Bill Clinton in 1998.
Lawrence also represented:
Robert Mueller three times;
James Comey five times;
Barack Obama 45 times;
Kathleen Sebelius 56 times;
Bill Clinton 40 times; and
Hillary Clinton 17 times.
Between 1998 and 2017, Barsoomian herself represented the FBI at least five times.
You may be saying to yourself, OK, who cares? Who cares about the work history of this Barsoomian woman?
Apparently, someone does, because someone out there cares so much that they’ve “purged” all Barsoomian court documents for her Clinton representation in Hamburg vs. Clinton in 1998 and its appeal in 1999 from the DC District and Appeals Court dockets (?). Someone out there cares so much that even the internet has been “purged” of all information pertaining to Barsoomian.
Historically, this indicates that the individual is a protected CIA operative. Additionally, Lisa Barsoomian has specialized in opposing Freedom of Information Act requests on behalf of the intelligence community. Although Barsoomian has been involved in hundreds of cases representing the DC Office of the US Attorney, her email address is Lisa Barsoomian at NIH.gov. The NIH stands for National Institutes of Health. This is a tactic routinely used by the CIA to protect an operative by using another government organization to shield their activities.
It’s a cover, so big deal right? What does one more attorney with ties to the US intelligence community really matter?
It deals with Trump and his recent tariffs on Chinese steel and aluminum imports, the border wall, DACA, everything coming out of California, the Uni-party unrelenting opposition to President Trump, the Clapper leaks, the Comey leaks, Attorney General Jeff Sessions recusal and subsequent 14 month nap with occasional forays into the marijuana legalization mix …. and last but not least Mueller’s never-ending investigation into collusion between the Trump team and-the Russians.
Why does Barsoomian, CIA operative, merit any mention?
BECAUSE….
She is Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s WIFE!”
Joe and I are not conspiracy theory fans.
But…. something is way beyond coincidence.  Let the sun shine in:

 

Prager U
Joe and I love us some Prager U.
We find Dennis Prager somewhat pompous for our liking, but Prager U freedom videos are an awesome force for liberty and free speech.
“Who is Karl Marx?” is presented by Paul Kengor, professor of political science at Gove City College:

 

Super Surfer
Joe and I tried “riding a wave” many years ago when we were agile, robust, athletic, and stupid(er).
What a ride!
After we recovered consciousness on the beach, shook the sand out of our shorts, ass, hair, and spit out a gallon of water, we concluded it wasn’t as easy as some make it look.
Here’s a surfer pro that makes you want to try, try, try again:

Sunday Rant – 3818

PN:

Joe’s Comment – I have never been a confident “think on your feet” person when it comes to social grace.  There is a program that runs in my head that makes me speak my version of truth before I think the situation through.
Upon reflection, a punch in the face might not be strong enough medicine.
Perhaps duct tape across the pie hole would serve.

 

The Tide Turns
Joe and I were alive during the presidential bid and final success of Ronald Regan.
Like most unthinking non-political busy workers raising a family, we followed the “main stream media” coverage and demonized Mr. Regan.
By the end of the ’80’s we were staunch advocates of his policy assessment of the Russian politburo –

Joe and I have learned a thing (or two) since then, and are happy to share with all y’all.  Dovery no provorey.
Give a little.  Prove a lot.  Make a judgement.  Rinse and repeat.
Donald J. Trump (for the infinite iteration) was not Joe’s or my first or second choice.  Then again, Baryuck Obarnyard wasn’t a choice at all or ever.
After every election, Joe and I are guilty of the same adage tumbling over our tongue and off our lips – let’s see what they do before we condemn them to eternal scorn and condemnation.
It is now late September 2018.
Donald Trump has held the office of POTUS for close to 1 year 9 months.
What has he accomplished?
How is the general public reacting?
What say the pundits and sages and financial wizards?
This link is to an article in the Financial Post written by Lawrence Solomon.  Mr. Solomon argues that contrary to MSM hysteria, President Trump is NOT unpredictable.  Indeed, he states that there has never been a president more predictable, more steadfast, more constant than Donald J. Trump.
These are more than fighting words to the left / progressive mobs who have not accepted the election results of 2016.  Indeed, the left is frothing at the mouth in a tormented rage of disbelief.  Their extremist adherents act this out daily.
A few quotes to whet your appetite to read the article –
…..”Trump’s predictability can best be seen by his formal record in keeping promises. By the end of his first year, according to the Heritage Foundation, he had kept a stunning 64 per cent of the 334 promises made in his Mandate for Leadership pledge. Criticize him for his policies or his personality or his hair — that would be defensible. Criticize him for being unhinged and unpredictable in executing his policies and you’re the one who needs a checkup.
…..Trump’s critics mistake his tactics, which are short-term and subject to change, for his strategy — getting to the long-term deals that he’s after. He’ll threaten a country with tariffs, then zig with an offer to negotiate, then zag by threatening it with doubled tariffs, all with the ultimate end in mind. Or he’ll publicly browbeat his military allies, threatening to end treaties, and using trade relations as leverage, to convince them to contribute more to their own defence, and to the common defence of the free world. These tactics may be diplomatic no-nos, but they succeeded, and in short order, in contrast to the decades of failure endured by Trump’s White House predecessors. If it’s unpresidential to keep America safe and return it to prosperity, America can use more unpresidents.”
The presidency of Donald Trump is a lesson for all to see.
What Joe and I see is the following:
–  He is totally self funded and beholden to none other than “We the People” by choice
–  He believes the American worker and American citizen can compete with anyone anywhere anyhow in the world.  Period.
–  He loves his country.
What Joe and I wish is we could have such leadership in Canada, for in the real world there are leaders and there are sheep followers.
A pox on the bureaucracy.
A curse on the shadow government.
A hex on the deep state.
Joe and I side with the individual, the person, the citizen.
Fuck the state.
(Said like a true non-theoretical Libertarian!)

 

Greater Male Variability Hypothesis (GMVH)
Very interesting theory that attempts to explain why there are more male geniuses and more male idiots than female of either extreme.
Joe and I say it’s hard to disagree.
The number of prison inmates and loony bin captives supports the theory:

 

OK!
This is an interesting short vignette about the origin of the expression “OK”.  Joe and I think it is an okay explanation, and we accept it:

 

The Carnivorous Human
Joe and I continue our carnivorous diet.
The weight loss continues, but ever so slowly (beer factor & our incredible efficiency metabolizing carbs…. OK, and the number of beers consumed, too).
Mood is stable and consistent.
We have been scouring the Internet for information……
The following presentation by Amber O’Hearn is chock full of interesting data about the human digestive mechanism.
Velly interesting:

Another interesting video about the carnivore diet, questioning how complete a nutritional source is meat, is all meat equal, what about fiber, and other mysteries of the gastrointestinal miracle:

Joe’s Comment – Gotta love the humor of Gennadi Ouzounian.  Even the name of his website “jean ouzounian and his super secret blog” cracks me up.  His byline says super unimportant stuff.  I couldn’t pick a favorite so here are two excellent examples.

 

The Religion of Peace™
Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a hero.  Or heroine.  Pick your choose you feminist bastards.
Joe and I would love to meet this brave and fearless woman.
Her path in life has brought her from being a “true believer” in the heart of mid East Muslim life to a life as an independent free woman, living in the United States.
If this woman doesn’t know what she is talking about, there are no “experts”.
Period.
This Prager University video may or may not be permitted by YoubeTube – who knows how much repression is in their future:

 

British Nincompoops
Tommy Robinson is an English hero.
The country that gave us “English Common Law”, the foundation of law in the UK, Canada, Australia, the United States has foundered.  And floundered.
The courts have handled Tommy Robinson’s “transgressions” abominably.
In their (whomever was representing the Crown) haste to disappear him, Tommy’s legal rights were ignored and transgressed.
During his struggle to be freed, Ezra Levant of Rebel Media was helpful.  Ezra started a crowd funding drive that helped provide legal aide to Mr. Robinson.
This interview of Tommy by Ezra is recent.  Mr. Robinson still faces legal repercussions that will be addressed by the Crown in the near future:

 

Sheila Gunn Reid
Ms. Reid continues to delve into the details and facts about Canada’s Syrian “refugee” program.
Very sobering information.
If Canada just has to extend this mercy to Syrian “refugees”, where (oh where?) in the wide wide world of Muslim sports are the Christian and Jewish refugees?
(The U.N. camps are closed to non-Muslim “refugees”).
How do border crashers become “refugees”?
(These “refugees” illegally crossed into Quebec from New York).
Why would you try to hide the costs of this jumping the shark idiocy of Chief Rainbow Socks and his merry band of morons?
Jesus H. Christ…..
Why is our military embarrassingly underfunded while we piss away tax dollars to virtue signal how virtuous pristine and holy the Trudeau cabal behaves?
How much more incompetence is required to prove Mr. Dress-Up & Co. are not up to the job of running this country?
Joe says his diet and years of drinking beer haven’t caused diarrhea or hemorrhoids or bloody stools even once.
Another 4 years of this child-King will give Joe bowel cancer:

According to this video, large numbers of these “refugees” were happy where they were.  They are, as Mongo so concisely stated, “only pawn in game of life”:

Alas, Joe thinks that the only game the Turdeau Gang is capable of is “we hate Trump” as a sub-set of the larger “we are better than Americans” bored (pun) game.  Joe is well passed bored bordering on alarm.
We realize that half of Canadians are below average in intelligence (if you don’t understand this, you may not qualify for Mensa).
How come more than half of voters act like they are below average in intelligence?
The world is full of mystery…..

 

Patrick Moore
This man is a Canadian hero.
He is not a “one trick pony”.
His broad view of 500 million years of earth’s existence in today’s reality has a resounding validity.
This link is to a conversation between Patrick Moore and Grégoire Canlorbe dated March 13, 2018.  A quote from the article:
“I was reading Richard Lindzen saying this morning, that the temperature has risen by a 1°C approximately in a last 150 years. During that time, every single measure of human welfare has improved, including environmental quality, especially in the wealthy countries, where we can afford to build the technology to clean the air in the smokestacks from the coal plants, and in our exhaust from our cars. These days what comes out of the exhaust of a car is almost all water and carbon dioxide, both of which are essential to life. So what I like to say, most people gasp at this, the fact is fossil fuel, coal, petroleum, natural gas are 100% organic, as in the scientific meaning of organic. Organic chemistry is the chemistry of carbon, in other words, the chemistry of life and all the fossil fuels are made from life, so they’re 100% organic. They were made 100% with solar energy. That was the only energy input.”
Patrick Moore speaks truth to fiction.
A rational man is wonderful to find.
Well worth the read.

 

Charlie Kirk
The organization TPUSA (Turning Point USA) is the brainchild of Charlie Kirk.
This conservative 24 year old is well spoken and thoroughly versed in the conservative / Libertarian mind-set of freedom for the individual and free trade for commerce.
This video is a tour de force of current conservative inspiration:

 

Bill C75
Oh! Canada!
The more Joe and I study the American Republic and the founding documents that frame their constitution, the more we realize how weak and vulnerable the Canadian approach to governance can be in comparison.
A new bill proposed by the Liberal government, Bill C75, makes changes to the criminal code of Canada.
An opinion of Bill C75 written by MP Ted Falk (Conservative – Manitoba) warns against weakening the criminal law in Canada and cautions about the motivation behind the bill.
Another opinion from Pamela Geller’s website Geller Report suggests these changes pave the way for Sharia law in Canada.
Corrections / adjustments / refinements to the Youth Criminal Justice Act, The Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, The Supreme Court Act and another nine legislative fields are the target of the bill.
A quick Google or Duck Duck Go search (maybe you use Bing?) brings you dozens of opinions about C75: good, bad, ugly, and every possible in-between.
We found this article from Robichaud’s Criminal Defense Litigation informative.
Joe and I are (theoretical) libertarians.  We are not (shudder!) lawyers.  We have never had a migraine headache, but if we had to wade through 300 pages of legalese to understand this bill for sure we’d have the mother of all migraines.
We side with Shakespeare re: attorneys and their litigious profession.
We, in our “perfect world”, don’t want any government, and certainly no laws, lawyers, or an armed organ of the state to enforce the laws.
Let us explain.
In our perfect world, everyone minds their own damn business and keeps out of the business of others.  Furthermore, everyone’s business focuses on activities which lead toward a better life for the individual with no penalty to the “common good”, i.e. betterment not at the cost of the general public, neither financial, environmental, wellness, or freedom.  (A tall order for 7.5 billion souls).
Joe and I argue that to exist in our perfect world would speak volumes about a certain homogeneity in people: that they would be motivated by good, not evil intention.  Which begs the question what does “good” mean……
The body of law in any western country is vast.
Joe and I caution: any law written not for the “smallest minority” (i.e. the individual) is fraught with peril, for this is pandering to the needs of a group, not an individual.
