The So-Called Insurrection

If it really was an insurrection, prove it.

House Republicans are demanding the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) release body and surveillance camera footage as well any other footage in connection with the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, according to a letter obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Wisconsin Rep. Glenn Grothman, Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert and South Carolina Rep. Ralph Norman first requested the information from the DOJ in October 2021. Now, they are re-upping their inquiry, asking Attorney General Merrick Garland to release the information since their constituents have a “growing concern” with the DOJ’s “apparent failure” to do so.

“Many Americans question why their government, and the Department in particular, has been so selective in its release of footage,” the lawmakers said in their letter. “We believe all Americans, including Members of Congress, the media, and the public at-large, should be able to view footage from January 6th that the Department has in its possession.”

They need more reactive armor…


The Law is Dead

Leftist activists can come to your house will bullhorns. They can jump fences and film you taking a dump.  They can loot your businesses and burn police stations but the FBI does nothing.

If conservative parents raise their voices at a school board meeting, they are hunted down as terrorists.

Such is the state of the nation.


Before and After avionics upgrade on Bulgarian Su-25s


Bullet Points

* Why is USGOV erasing plague vax history? Nature Biotechnology asserts that the first reduction in the practice of mRNA vaccination occurred in 2000.  This is patently false.  It is hard to believe that this could be an accidental oversight by this scientific journal.  The first in-vivo (animal) experiments reducing this mRNA vaccination to practice occurred in 1989.

* And what about the ‘breakfast tacos?’

* The Brandon Regime sent $44 million to states supporting critical race theory. The outrages continue.


Identify the Tank

It’s on display in Prague

  1. That looks like an expensive avionics upgrade!

    No immediate answer on the tank. I need to blow up the pics, and see if I can figure it out.


    1. Nope, IDK. Something about the hull line and the turret rear look familiar, but I can’t place it. Sure did have a lot of applique armor at one point.


  2. Jan 6 Doings, can’t really call it an insurrection can you. Demonstration turned into small riot perhaps especially when there is clear video of people having doors held open for them by the Capital Police. At this late date all the video has probably been deleted don’t you think?

    Identify the Tank No idea but seeing the picture brought to mind the EOD range at Hunter Liggett in CA. Whole pile of tanks with one hole punched in the turret of each one. Kind of dissuades one from selecting “Tanker” on the job application.

    Erasing history, interesting article, almost as if they are trying to eliminated Dr. Malone’s experiments and conclusions. Can’t have the guy that developed the process say that it is being horribly misused in the current vaccine now can we?

    The tax burden map was interesting, thanks. I do believe it is a bit understated though if it is supposed to include things like property taxes and taxes on fuel though.

    SU 25 upgrade. Glass cockpits are the thing now. Hopefully they have been tested to be at least as durable as what they are replacing.

    1. Seems to me, it was more of a Mostly Peaceful Protest than any of the Mostly Peaceful Protests were.


      1. Absolutely agree. I would say it is a double standard but I don’t know if that is accurate when BLM and their ilk are held to no standard at all.

  3. Tax burden percentages. First thought that popped into my head was “Tithe much?”.

  4. “hard to believe that this could be an accidental oversight”

    There was a time when “physician” was a generally respected, and more importantly, a high-trust profession. No longer. I suspect doctors are now held in lower esteem than lawyers. The trust is gone.

    My personal trust in “eminent” scientific journals is now badly eroded. As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve personally seen cardiovascular epidemiology go from hard-statistics driven to woke D.I.E. nonsense. (I’ve moved to one of the few bastions of CVD medicine relatively unaffected. For now.) It’s now happening almost across the board. Politics and ideology are ascendant.

    But two can play at that. I’m reviewing a manuscript on racial differences in care. They’ve got the statistics crosswise. (The source data appear to be sound, the stats suffer from fundamental misunderstanding of what they are trying to do.) Ordinarily I’d just briefly point out what’s wrong and recommend “Reject”. But this afternoon I’m going to spend at least an hour writing out for the authors not only what they did wrong, but how to fix it, in detail, and recommend “Major Revision” (and re-review updated paper). Why? Because the authors called their paper “racial DIFFERENCES in …” rather than call it “disparities”. (And no, we’re not paid anything as reviewers. It’s considered “service”. I could be doing billable work, but no, I’ll probably have sunk 3-4h into this thing all told.)

    1. I don’t blindly trust doctors as I don’t blindly trust cops anymore.
      I despise health corporations that have devoured local hospitals.

      1. I applaud your service, Mike_C, though on the internet it sounds like one hand clapping. Still and all, thank you.

        1. Pretty sure it should be the other way around and me thanking you, but still: Thanks, guys.

          I’d like to think that even little pieces of pushback add up, eventually. That’s almost certainly not enough, but it’s my fond delusion.

  5. Jan 6th is best known as a trap. It was a funnel shaped ambush.

    Often I have considered the thankless tasks of the avionics technician. Contorting the body in such fantastic positions in order to reach under, over, behind, around panels and instrument clusters would astound a yoga instructor. I love your work, but no thanks.

    Displayed at Prague, burned turret, probably a NATO Ally tank.

    The tax map is a mean average per state. I know there are local jurisdictions where the actual sales tax is at least treble that shown on the map. This is explained by including the fire, flood, school, library, and other assessments. A county-wide tax may include multiple assessments for the schools only. That alludes to the suspect efficiency (bang for the buck) of each assessment. Citizens, er, taxpayers are still on the hook for, say a bond for new aquatic center which was actually not built.

  6. Tax burden map. Colorado Democrats, to get around the State Constitution TABOR Amendment, now label their wish list funding as fees.
    What is the likelihood the November elections won’t happen? Upcoming rail strike prolonged, new and improved COVID, and perhaps a convenient war would allow Xiden to declare a national state of emergency and “postpone” the elections.
    The left knows, even with rigged elections, they will lose big time. This is their only out. They already shown, in ways too numerous to list, they have no respect for the law.

    1. Keep poking the bear until it retaliates on a NATO member. NATO sends missiles against targets in Russia. Russia says we can do that too and sends conventional warheads against the contiguous United States. One second after the first hit, martial law declared and the elections canceled due to the unprecedented threat. All according to plan.

      1. Along with martial law, gut the 2nd Amendment and confiscate firearms.

  7. The whole J6 thing revolts me. What a fraudulent, rigged, faked up, vindictive, despotic, faked up PR scam. From the same reeking stable of lies as “Trump’s a Russian Spy” and “Biden won by 81 million votes!” Or again, Abortion = Healthcare and our ambassador was killed by a youtube video.

    We know who their Father is.

        1. You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
