Bullet Points:

** The Trump vs. DeSantis fight feels like a distraction from the fight to stop the election from being rigged. Until we can have clean and fair elections everything is moot.

** The New State Media – We previously discussed the movement in journalism schools to get rid of principles of objectivity in journalism. Advocacy journalism is the new touchstone in the media even as polls show that trust in the media is plummeting. Now, former executive editor for The Washington Post Leonard Downie Jr. and former CBS News President Andrew Heyward have released the results of their interviews with over 75 media leaders and concluded that objectivity is now considered reactionary and even harmful. Emilio Garcia-Ruiz, editor-in-chief at the San Francisco Chronicle said it plainly: “Objectivity has got to go.” 

** A Look at the darker side of music. “boy sopranos”

** An Iranian illegal immigrant whose name is listed on the FBI’s Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB) was caught and arrested at the southern border where he was found smuggled in the trunk of a vehicle.

Alireza Heidari, 29, was arrested last week in Val Verde, Texas, as part of the state’s Operation Lone Star run by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS); four other illegal immigrants accompanied him in the car, Fox News reported.

** In Saudi Arabia…

Saudi Arabia will consider trading in currencies other than the US dollar, the country’s finance minister said on Tuesday, in one of the clearest signs yet that the oil-rich kingdom is open to diversifying away from the greenback.

“There are no issues with discussing how we settle our trade arrangements, whether it is in the US dollar, whether it is the euro, whether it is the Saudi riyal,” the kingdom’s finance minister, Mohammed al-Jadaan, told Bloomberg TV on Tuesday, in an interview in Davos, Switzerland.

Jadaan’s comments are likely to spark speculation about Riyadh’s willingness to conduct oil sales in Chinese yuan.

** Obama will not consent to a search for classified documents among his papers. How interesting! Can you imagine what they’d find? Kenyan birth records. Falsified college transcripts. Tranny documents for Big Mike/Mooch. Emails saying take out Joan Rivers. A subscription to Teen Beat. Oh and of course classified material and coordinating treasonous activity.

** The Pentagon has selected two teams to further develop their designs for a full-scale demonstrator of the Liberty Lifter X-plane. Aurora Flight Sciences (working with Gibbs & Cox and ReconCraft) and General Atomics (working with Maritime Applied Physics Corporation) are pursuing two very different designs for phase 1 of the project, as a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) press release distributed on February 1 shows.

** The New King of Florida? Beans – do you want the job?

** Claudio commented in the e-mail chain that he sends out to some of you, “Good Lord. The UK is defenseless…” They have been for some time. They brigade up with the US to try and look meaningful but the Empire is long gone and prioritized spending goes to social programs.  With the near collapse of the National Healthcare System there, one could say that social spending isn’t working out the way that they hoped. PM Thatcher predicted that they’re run out of other people’s money. In order to remain relevant they fully endorsed the New World Order and while they hope it will give them leverage, they’re just hanging on by their fingernails. You’re right, Claudio. They’re hiring police officers who are illiterate to meet racial quotas. (as discussed)

** (h/t) Claudio – There are problems with the tanks – Russia reported that they had 2,600 tanks available at the time of the February 2022 invasion of Ukraine. There was visible evidence that nearly 1,600 were lost during the first few months of the invasion. While 924 were destroyed, another 664 were damaged and abandoned. Most of these tanks were undamaged and captured intact after their crews abandoned them. These were repainted to identify them as Ukrainian and used against the Russians. Many of these tanks eventually became unusable because Ukraine did not have replacement parts for them. Ukraine used similar tanks but not all of the replacement parts for Ukrainian tanks were suitable for the captured Russian ones.

Russia had a similar problem with the thousand tanks that survived the invasion and over a thousand more that were brought in as replacements. The replacement parts problem was even more acute for the Russians because they changed their tank tactics in the face of the numerous Western top-attack ATGMs (Anti-Tank Guided Missiles) that quickly destroy Russian tanks because of the way these tanks use their autoloaders, which puts many exposed shells and their propellant charges in the turret. If the turret is hit by a top attack ATGM, all those propellant charges explode, killing the three-man crew and often blowing the turret off the tank…continued here.

** There are a lot of lessons to be learned from the Russia-Ukraine War and the big question is whether everyone is paying attention or not. The MASSIVE Russian strategic war reserve turned out to be a junkyard not unlike a pick-a-part. Their advantage in aircraft can’t be exploited because of the horrible, brutal losses they’ve experienced. Russia should have been able to walk through Ukraine and both sides are in a stalemate.

  1. “We were told by current leadership to paint them raging pink but that doesn’t send the right message.”

    1. It looks good but when they fly over Ukraine, they’re shot down. Not ready for war, but they do look good.

  2. in re Saudi:
    why do I get this horrible, queasy feeling that this action could be the first death-knell heard for the U.S. dollar

    1. They don’t need to trade in dollars. Pedo Joe slammed the door on that one. They’re now cooperating with China.

  3. Maybe the Trump/DeSantis kerfuffle is designed to distract people from seeing the new palace the FBI wants to build?

  4. Yes, it IS rather interesting that Obama has NOT been asked any questions about classified, while ‘W’ was… Concur with what would ‘probably’ be found, considering what Billy Boy’s crew left lying around and Shrillary’s actions.

  5. We can never trust anything the Russians have said or say or will say. Obfuscation and outright lying is one of the foundations of Russian character and persona. Part of their mores and morals. Especially when talking to anyone not of one’s family group, which, of course, includes other Russians.

    As to King of Florida? Nah. Feudalism is a sucky way of trying to control a modern society. Of course, since our betters are trying to destroy modern society and replace it with a neo-feudalism, well, I’m willing to be a warlord or something equivalent.

    1. I had you penciled in as Lord High Executioner. You have to realize where your talents are.

  6. can you give any other sources for info on selling children in mexico and or harvesting their organs i received direct info from a doctor in mexico but need some print sources.

    1. I don’t know about organ harvesting. Are you in a position to travel to Mexico directly?

      1. I live in Texas and can travel to Mexico. I go to the Border in Texas, New Mexico and Arizona regularly but as a retired BP if I was caught down there things would not go well, therefore I do not go.

  7. Add title: Hey man hold up… your old lady just called and said you better get home right now!
    Just imagine who the hell is still getting in that nobody knows about yet?

  8. Why does 0bama have to “consent” to search his papers? Is it a courtesy thing so they don’t have to go through the embarrassment of getting a warrant? Sounds like just more theater to me….

    I didn’t expect the Russians to have a cake-walk through the Ukraine, but this is quite, quite different. I remember the stories Viktor Belenko told about “maintenance problems” with the MiG-25, but it looks like things have gotten much worse.

    1. The flight crews used to drink the grain alcohol coolant for those big Turmanski Turbojets.

  9. Thou shalt not be a farkin around with the petro-dollar, it makes the world go round and round. Just ask Ghadaffi….oh wait.
