Bullet Points:

* File under – wow, that’s likely. – Kiev, Ukraine — Russia’s foreign minister on Tuesday warned anew Ukraine that it must demilitarize.  By that logic, the American public should hand in its firearms so that Old Pedo Joe can protect them better. It’s like trying to convince patriot Americans that their FBI is there to protect them and to deliver justice…

Yeah, and I have a bridge that I’ll sell you for a big bag of one-ounce gold Krugerrands. Russia has shown itself to be so honest and caring for its Ukrainian brothers. Who wouldn’t trust them?  Go ahead and disarm. That would be very woke.

* Fuel – The summer of 2023 might not bring the national average up to $5/gallon for unleaded again, but GasBuddy warned that as “most major U.S. cities will see prices top around $4 per gallon” as winter turns to spring, “areas of California like San Francisco and Los Angeles could again experience near $7 gas prices again in the summer of 2023 if refineries struggle under mandates of unique formulations of gasoline.”

As Townhall reported earlier in 2022, California’s Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom tried to blame the refineries and gas companies for high gas prices in his state, but got slapped down by Valero which explained that Democrat policies mandating different formulations of fuel were actually to blame.

* Why didn’t that happen before now? (Gateway Pundit)

Migrant crossings have plummeted in a mile-long stretch of Downtown El Paso where the Texas Army National Guard has set up concertina wire and portable fencing along the Rio Grande.

The guard began setting up the barrier last week at a gap in the border wall west of the Paso del Norte port of entry. In the space of eight days, the barbed wire has nearly reached the second port of entry and the chain-link fence anchored by sandbags extends even farther. The result is that asylum seekers can no longer walk across ankle-deep water in the Rio Grande and turn themselves into waiting for Border Patrol agents in that area.

* On a year-over-year basis, pending home sales collapsed 38.60%, the largest annual drop ever. Outside of the COVID-Lockdown collapse, this is the lowest pending home sales index level ever.

* “It’s difficult to free fools from the chains they revere.” – Voltaire

* ZeroHedge – In a move that absolutely nobody could have seen coming, New York City is scrapping its brilliant idea for electric garbage trucks after finding out the truck simply “aren’t powerful enough to plow snow”.

Sanitation Commissioner Jessica Tisch told the NYC city council earlier this month: “We found that they could not plow the snow effectively – they basically conked out after four hours. We need them to go for 12 hours. Given the current state of the technology, I don’t see today a path forward to fully electrifying the rear loader portion of the fleet by 2040.”

 

 

I started to Worry

(GP) What will the democrat party do without a laundering operation in place to redistribute all of that Ukraine foreign aid back to the DNC?

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky announced a continuation of a partnership with the investment management company BlackRock for rebuilding Ukraine from the ruins of war.

My faith has been restored.

 

What about some Memes?

 

 

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

    • We’ll see.

      BlackRock will be more efficient at laundering and hiding the laundered funds. It’s as corrupt of an organization as you’ll find on the planet and they’ll demonstrate significant acumen at their trade.

  1. Home sales collapse: nothing is more sensitive to the prime interest rate than mortgages. The Fed has had to dramatically increase interest rates to compensate for the stupidly increasing money “printing” that caused all the inflation. Both housing and new car sales collapsing is as predictable as the sunrise, yet they pretend it’s all a surprise.

    They hurt us by creating inflation and then hurt us again by causing a recession to stop it. Tell me again why we don’t have real, stable money? It’s just so politicians can give handouts and get reelected?

    • That’s why. Hand-outs for the purpose of maintaining power.

      “One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power.” – Orwell – “If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—forever.”

  2. SiG beat me to it. We saw this back in the 70s too, except people were buying ‘affordable’ used cars, which aren’t available today… And that Obummer meme just keeps on giving… LOL

  3. BlackRock is a criminal enterprise with special status, meaning “un-prosecutable”. Must be nice. 10% for the Big Guy…still. And Mitchy is in on it otherwise he’d be calling him out.

    The proverbial “chickens are coming home to roost”. What is unfolding is a manifestation (planned??) of The Lockdown and destruction of the rule of law in this country…the whole intentional chaotic mix by the Dem’s. [Not] Green energy is just another lie to cripple our grid and line the pockets of adherents. The Southwest debacle is a massive red flag indicator, but the news was rabid how it’s all THEIR fault. Not even close. Employees – what remained after a pile were let go over “The Jab” then Weird Uncle Petey’s demand they diversify regardless of qual’s – simply did not come to work. Why?

    Now, Ol’ Joe is has formally vacated the Oval Office to a cushy spot on St. Croix to drink adult beverages with little umbrellas in them and Hunter can get free ganga…all while America burns and We The People suffer. He’s a proven liar for most of his life, but Santos gets hung for the same idiocy. Yeah,he’s a bum and total tap-dancing putz, but goose-gander apparently doesn’t apply “equitably”, it’s one-directional.

    Been to St. Croix…MrsPaulM has a Danish family acquaintance there as it WAS Danish and still has that flavor. It gags me Pedo Joe went there, only because as a grifter he got a freebie kickback place by one of his Dem-Doner acolyte/handlers (in exchange for what??). I have come to despise the activist bored wealthy.

    The island is only 28 miles long but he’ll tie up the entire place. Maybe his driver will get confused, go the wrong way on the LH drive roads. If he and the Mrs. go to Rhythms at Rainbow Beach I’ll puke. Probably do a photo op with the aviators at Captain Morgan’s so he can show he’s a “real cool guy”. Maybe the island will tip over due to his massive ego. Unfortunately hope is not a plan.

    • You KNOW that they shut the island down for Pedo Joe and his coterie crooks, sexual deviates, all elite, and confident in the knowledge that they’re better than anyone else living there.

      • Probably. The Ex-Pat Danes usually don’t give much quarter to grifters and morons so maybe they’ll extend some cold shoulder, even at The Buccaneer.

        Maybe with all that criminal element having descended on such a small footprint IT WILL tip over…washed clean. That’d do the rest of us a huge favor.

          • THAT would be fine with me. Even better than the Cuban’s, the Ruskies. Macarthy is in a tougher battle than Mitchy expected, I say give The Nan what she wants, might as well see this nightmare through, which may just end the Democrat party and at least half the R’s.

            Seems to be a lot of foreign powers keeping Addled Joe alive, apparently still useful to their plan to undermine America and bring her to ruin. I’d like to know who he is meeting with on the island..might be telling.
