Romney Family Investment Ties To Voting Machine Company That Could Decide The Election Causing Concern …more here.

It’s a long article, but one worth reading. Mitt Romney always seems to come down on the side of the donkeys. Or should I refer to him as “Pierre Delecto“.

There will be Book Burning

You can call it Fahrenheit 451 or you can smack a different label on it.

There is nothing more subversive in the eyes of tyrants than the truth. And with the rise of digital media, books are far easier to delete than pulp books will ever be. Expect it. The vote for American Socialism, Joe and the Ho, will require that books are censored – and destroyed likely under the rubric of ‘hate speech’.

Look how easy it will be to wipe this insignificant blog from history.

The great weapon is not a bomb or a gun. It’s control of information. To control all the world’s information is to control all of the minds that consume it — that’s where all this is heading. And just think, it used to be SciFi. Control of the future requires control of the past.


Memorable Quote: A park ranger at Yosemite National Park offered an opinion on why it was difficult to design the perfect garbage bin that would keep bears from breaking into it.

“There is considerable overlap between the intelligence of the smartest bears and the dumbest tourists.”


From Zero Hedge

“The whole world, or at least the morally superior part, seems to have decided that a president who puts his own nation first and sees to its safety and prosperity is outrageous beyond every measure, and must be destroyed. But no one knows just how bad Donald Trump is as thoroughly as London’s Mayor Sadiq Khan.”

Read the whole article, linked above. I think that Sadiq needs to calm down and eat a pork chop or something.


Who is that Masked Man?

In an op-ed at the Wall Street Journal, UCLA Geffen School of Medicine Professor Dr. Joseph Ladapo made the case that health and political authorities have “oversold” use of masks as a means to prevent spread of the Chinese coronavirus.

“Health officials and political leaders have assigned mask mandates a gravity unsupported by empirical research,” Ladapo asserted.

The UCLA associate professor observed mask-wearing and mask “mandates” have ended up as a distraction from the realities of the pandemic, one of which is that “viruses inevitably spread.”

The public, he stated, actually assumes that scientific research supports mask mandates.

Looking at the actual scientific evidence, however, Ladapo noted Emerging Infectious Diseases reported in May that most completed randomized trials of community or household masking have shown use of a mask “has little or no effect on respiratory virus transmission” of influenza.

Although mechanistic studies support the potential effect of hand hygiene or face masks, evidence from 14 randomized controlled trials of these measures did not support a substantial effect on transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza.

We did not find evidence that surgical-type face masks are effective in reducing laboratory-confirmed influenza transmission, either when worn by infected persons (source control) or by persons in the general community to reduce their susceptibility. However, as with hand hygiene, face masks might be able to reduce the transmission of other infections and therefore have value in an influenza pandemic when healthcare resources are stretched.


The only person who fights harder than President Trump, is a child, taking a photo with Joe Biden.


Biden underperformed Hillary with the exception of a few inner city hells, run by Democrats, where the vote for Biden exceeded the number of registered voters.

Has anyone ever asked why they don’t find ‘missing’ Republican ballots? Or am I over-complicating things?

  1. Romney was Governor of Massachusetts ; enough said.

    That’s why I voted for Barry the 2nd time around – at least he was up-front about being a Communist, instead of telling me he was “on my side”, and “going to protect my gun rights”, and “against Obama-care (which, BTW, I invented) “.


    1. Romney is a small man in many ways. His actions continue to underwhelm me. I voted for him and for McCain, two brothers from another mother rather than Barky. Two horrible choices.

          1. Loathed McCain. Dislike Romney. Like many, held my nose and voted for both. Romney can get things done. Examples are Bain Capital and salvaging the Salt Lake City Olympics.

            A friend tells me Bain has a reputation for total ruthlessness. Since he is the only $8,000,000 a year earning executive I know, I won’t argue with him.

          2. Romney has organizational skills and saving the SLC Olympics gave him big street creds with his church and his state (very close to the same thing if one measures raw power). He’s ruthless enough to run Bain. And he’s enough of a cur to beg Trump for money and then bite the hand that feeds him.

            Romney is scum.

  2. Regarding wearing a mask. Imagine you are a space alien come to Earth. You observe wild dissonance in advice from the medical experts. You try to make sense of it. You conclude either here is an imbecilic human population which does not possess the necessary understanding or that there must be a contrived artificial means at play. But you have observed a long history of stellar technological developments therefore you must further conclude there is something of a forced association, say political in nature, which offers the best explanation.
    Furthermore, that contrivance, which has nothing of note to do with the actual medical problem, has itself become casus belli as the struggle the people face in every facet of their lives acts to foment anger and resentment among them and directed towards the so-called elite.

    Of the map of the Blue Wave, it must be understood that the size of the blue chunk on the west coast is primarily two counties; Kern and San Bernardino counties. Both are large counties, the latter being the largest county in the U.S. Kern County is primarily agricultural which comprises very large fields, the latter mostly large tracts of unpopulated desert. Both counties have relatively small population. This map does not show the actual human populations which would leave one to think Creepy Joe is vastly popular.

    1. San Bernardino County for the most part is kind of a ghetto county. There are islands of nice homes and nice areas like Lake Arrowhead and parts of Chino, but as you say, mostly desert. I don’t think that Joe was particularly popular there but I know of people in that area who voted for him, but they’re socialists out for a free meal.

  3. A wise park ranger…I’ve seen it in action.

    Seems the Left wants to ruin everything American, using a cold virus on par with seasonal flu (actual death rate), to extend their hate for the most of us. Now it’s Thanksgiving and Christmas with shutdowns in most major cities starting Friday, which is obvious it’s their attempt to limit peoples joy and happiness with family and friends. Miserable lot. Best avoided.

    I’m telling you any data, report, story, or factual information regarding placebo face -binky’s will never be believed by the complicit crowd…brain-washed into believing it protects them against all evils. All it does is offer an excuse to hide while out and about.

    Still have hope that by Dec. 9th POTUS wins this thing, and the EC has the final say in the matter.

      1. Yellowstone – if it were to reopen beyond the china flu panic because according to The Fouch being outside is no longer safe – could offer “FREE petting zoo days” instead of “STAY AWAY FROM THE BISON” warning hand outs (some need to be told this will be a problem for them).

        Kidding, but scary true…and they vote for free stuff.

        1. Sometimes I am mystified that the run-of-the-mill donkeys are even smart enough to shit, but since their cities are full of scat and needles, apparently they can do that quite well.

  4. I’ll never enjoy Ding Dongs and Ho Ho’s the same again. Speaking of bears, we have a huge one that hits our little community a couple of times a week. So far, he’s torn the doors off of a few sheds and went straight through some fences. So far he’s only crushed my trash can lid. He used it to get over my six foot fence, and not through it. The can is in pretty good shape. So, buy Rubbermaid.

    1. You know that a democrat has been in your back yard because there is a hole in the fence, your trash can is empty and the dog is pregnant. Because you didn’t mention anything about your dog, I’m guessing that it was a bear.

  5. Forget pork chops. I’m thinking fast food. Very very fast food.

    I was surprised that Joseph Ladapo, MD, PhD would dare come out and say that (I have not yet read the link, so take any commentary with a grain of salt). So I looked him up. Turns out he has a PhD in Health Policy from Harvard. Further turns out that Health Policy is an interdisciplinary program split between six schools within Harvard. HP sounded like something that logically fell under the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health, and TH Chan is fully converged, and it was very difficult to imagine anyone from THC [heh; and trust me, a much worse drug than pot] bucking the collectivist trend. (Having gone through some TH Chan courses, I can tell you that each lecture was an exercise in self-control and “Stifle yourself!” — as Archie Bunker used to say.) Anyway. it just so happens that Dr Ladapo is Black. Hopefully that will give him some protection. Or maybe he’s just decided to end his academic career.

    In the vein of ending one’s career, a Chinese cardiologist in on the faculty of Univ. of Pittsburgh wrote a white paper [ironic, I know] about the probable extremely negative effect of “diversity initiatives” [i.e. forced diversity] on quality and competence in cardiology going forward, and he was crucified. The paper had been published in a respectable mainstream cardiology journal. It was retracted under a tsunami of protest. The editor-in-chief, whom I know personally, though not well, and whom I respect as a researcher and a very decent human being, was forced to grovel and apologize for having published such “hate speech”.

    As to SB County, I had a very nice conversation with a gent who ran his own business up in the High Desert. Of Mexican descent, he was a huge Trump supporter, and despised illegals. “Build the damn wall already. Ship out the ones who don’t belong here. If you want to come here, earn it, do it legally. My grandfather, he was from Mexico. He joined the Marine Corps and served this country. My father same thing, only for him it was Army. Me, I was born here, and I haven’t served, but that’s the way to do it.” Then he told me about his last range day with his son “he has Trump gear all over his truck, and nobody had better mess with him!”

    1. Mike, I didn’t know that the medical establishment was as invested in masks as it apparently is. The same is true of ‘diversity’. It gives me a warm glow that I didn’t go into medicine because as a white, heterosexual, male, I’d have painted a big bull’s eye over my heart. Perhaps if I allowed hospital staff to spit on me (without spitting them) as I passed, I could excoriate the perceived sins of the past hundred or so generations.

      My personal physician is a white, male, heterosexual MD about my age. My guess is that he’s part of a dying breed. If only he self-identified as a female Eskimo or something.

      San Bernardino County has a lot of rednecks. Unfortunately many are felons and are excluded from voting. I’m sure that those who are democrats still vote early and often because the twin tracks of justice tend to avoid prosecuting such “mistakes”. A Republican would naturally, find his way back into prison for such flagrant disregard for voting laws.

  6. I could have sworn I left a message on this post. I’m also sure it was probably brilliant, but damned if I can remember what it was. My gosh, LL – is this the beginning of the end?

    1. Maybe it’s just the end of the beginning in terms of American history? We’ve had a number of crisis points and dark days. The War of Northern Aggression/Civil War was horrible. The Second World War was a tipping point, a two-ocean war. The Cold War had us doing duck and cover drills as children.

      Can we keep the US from becoming a one-party system that would evolve into something like what they have in China? Maybe. It could cut in either direction.
