Did you think that Ice Hockey was “safe” for white men?

The NHL released a “diversity & inclusion” report on Monday declaring its commitment to implement hiring practices related to “racial demographics,” “gender identity,” and “sexual orientation.”

I wonder if it would be cool if the white men on the team just self-identified as Brittney Griner?

In Arizona

(Brietbart) Arizona Governor Doug Ducey (R) is weighing options before responding to an order from the Biden regime to remove shipping containers from the Mexican border. The governor ordered the barriers along gaps in existing border walls earlier this year.

The U.S. Department of the Interior wrote a letter to Governor Ducey, demanding the removal of double-stacked shipping containers placed on federal land near Yuma. The letter also demanded no new containers be placed, the Associate Press reported.

In mid-August, state contractors began placing more than 3,000 double-stacked shipping containers to fill gaps in the Arizona border with Mexico left by Biden’s inauguration day order to stop the building of barriers, Breitbart Texas reported.

“Inaction by President Joe Biden has led to the worst border crisis in over 20 years,” Governor Ducey said in a signing letter in June. ” We’ve taken numerous steps to help resolve the chaos, including deploying the Arizona National Guard, signing legislation to address human smuggling, and transporting migrants on a voluntary basis to Washington, D.C.”

Some will be upset that they went to the wrong college at the wrong time. Beginning September 17th, 2022, the University of Southern California (USC) held its first sex week. Sounds like a great use of tuition money. But at the very least, we now can understand why they call their sports teams the Trojans.

Personally am not against sex. To be honest, I don’t even object to college students having sex as long as they know if their partner has an STD and they use some form of birth control. If a college had seminars on those items, it would make sense.

According to USC Annenberg Media.

“We felt it was the right time to help openly address that young adulthood is when many people have sex, or are thinking about what type of sexual identity, practices, community, gender really fits who they are,” USC Student Health said in a statement to Annenberg Media.

When your Pension Fails

(BRM) (and here too) The real problem is that every pension fund in the world has implemented some sort of Wall Street securitization/leverage concoction, intentionally designed to make the managers look good in their quarterly reviews, intentionally designed to use short-term leverage against long-term obligations, intentionally designed to use the math of the past thirty years to obfuscate the risks of a regime change not found in the past thirty years.

Wall Street has infected some pension funds a lot with their words of riskless return through the magic of securitization and leverage. Wall Street has infected some pension funds a little with their words of riskless return through the magic of securitization and leverage. But Wall Street has infected ALL pension funds.

I know you’re thinking, Good old creepy, demented, corrupt, pedo Joe will have them just print more paper money and I’ll be fine.  But when the canary in the gold mine dies, it’s good to have a plan.

A person I know says, “you can’t eat guns and ammo.” True, but guns and ammo can get me something to eat.

 

Life in a Soviet Republic

Arthur Koestler remembers that food was scarce, especially if you tried to buy it with the regime’s ration cards and nearly worthless paper money, but for some reason, the same paper would purchase an abundance of Commune-sponsored vanilla ice cream, which his family therefore consumed for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

(My comment: I’m sure that creepy old Joe would support this)

He mentions this curiosity, he remarks, ‘because it was typical of the happy-go-lucky, dilettantish and even surrealistic ways in which the Commune was run.’ It was, Koestler thought ‘all rather endearing – at least when compared to the lunacy and savagery which would descend upon Europe in the years to come.’

Bullet Points:

* Inflation caused the IRS to raise tax brackets, and the standard deduction by 7%. FJB – How kind of them! Social Security gives 8.7%, not even half the real inflation rate, and the IRS generously gives 7%. How special! And Congress won’t adjust the threshold for making social security benefits taxable- it’s been the same since the 80s. “Let them eat ice cream!”

 

Special Operations Forces – Retasking

U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM), which has grown to become the world’s top counterterrorism force over the past 20 years, is now facing some changes in mission and reductions in personnel under the Biden administration’s National Security Strategy.

During that period, SOCOM grew from about 45,700 military and civilian personnel in 2001 to about 73,900 in the fiscal year 2021.

SOCOM Commander General Richard Clarke and Assistant Secretary of Defense for Special Operations Christopher Maier announced last April in their Vision and Strategy statement, Special Operations Forces (SOF) must evolve “from the world’s premier Counter Terrorism (CT) force into one optimally suited to support the Joint Force and the Nation as part of integrated deterrence…”

The implication is that it’s time to send US Special Operators to Ukraine to fight Russians as part of America’s Third World War strategy. Let’s go Brandon!

 

The Australian Titanic

Built in England in 1853, the three-masted Blackwall Frigate Dunbar was intended by her own Duncan Dunbar to be used as a cargo and passenger ship, but this was not possible as the Royal Navy hired her as a troopship for the Crimean War. It was not until 1856 that she began her proper duties and started carrying passengers to Sydney.

The Dunbar, 1853, by Thomas Goldsworth Dutton 

On Sunday 31 May 1857, under the command of Captain James Green, the Dunbar set sail from Plymouth for what was only her second crossing to Sydney. On board were 63 passengers and 59 crew members. The cargo included engine parts, furniture, coins, cutlery, food, and spirits.

On Thursday evening, 20 August 1857, the Dunbar arrived at the entrance to Port Jackson, Sydney Harbour, after a voyage of 81 days. As the ship approached the harbor from the south, heavy rain and fierce high winds made navigation difficult. In the storm and darkness, land could hardly be made out. The lights of Macquarie Lighthouse were sighted to port, so Captain Green assumed that he had already passed the headland at the southern end of the entrance. It is also believed that Green mistook a nearby cove called The Gap for the harbor entrance. He altered course accordingly and had a blue signal light set to indicate the Dunbar’s arrival to the pilot of Port Jackson.

Shortly before midnight, the ship was only about six nautical miles from the harbor. When huge breakers were sighted directly ahead, additional scouts were posted. It was realized on board that they were too close to the shore, so a maneuver was initiated to move away from the land. However, there were too few sails set and there were rugged rocks on a direct course. Before the Dunbar could move away from the shore, she hit the rocks south of Sydney Heads between Macquarie Lighthouse and The Gap bay. The force of the impact was so strong that the Dunbar almost capsized and the stem was torn away. Several massive walls of water rolled over the starboard side one after the other, taking people, lifeboats, and the masts with them.

Wreck of Dunbar, South Head, by Samuel Thomas Gill c1862-1863 

The force of the churning sea and the storm literally smashed the ship lying on its side. Water rushed into the hull and drowned passengers in their cabins before they could rush on deck. Out of 122 people, only one survived. His name was James Johnson and he was part of the crew. He only survived thanks to a wave that washed him up on the cliff and he was able to climb up from where he was rescued two days later. At first, no one knew anything about the accident itself. It was only when the Grafton a steamer, drove through a debris field that it became clear that an accident must have happened there. From then on, a rescue operation began in which Johnson could be saved, bodies recovered and cargo salvaged.

Some of the bodies showed traces of shark attacks. They were finally buried on 24 August 1857 at St Stephens Church in Camperdown Cemetery in O’Connell Town (now Newtown), a suburb of Sydney. The funeral procession to the cemetery was attended by an estimated 20,000 people and the day itself was declared a national day of mourning.

The identified victims were given individual graves, while 22 unidentified victims were buried in a mass grave. A memorial to the victims still stands in the cemetery today, with a salvaged anchor placed next to it.

Johnson remained in Australia and became a harbor pilot in Newcastle, where he rescued the sole survivor of the Cawarra in a similar accident in 1866.

The Admiralty Anchor recovered from the Dunbar wreck site in 1910 and later displayed at The Gap at Watsons Bay as a permanent memorial to those lost in the tragedy. 

The wreck itself was not found until 1955 when divers found only the remains, but many treasures such as coins and jewelry. However, these disappeared into private collections. The wreck has been protected since 1976.

  1. Pensions. Those evil capitalists of WallStreet are at it again. If only Congress, I mean the UK Parliment since “Epsilon Theory’s” ex-academic investment founder is talking about the UK pension system, would only pass legislation to direct what pension funds in the UK could invest in. As to central banks, how could an ‘expert’ fail to mention the City of London or Davos involvement in market manipulation. LIBOR rates rigged, that’s so old news it doesn’t deserve mention.

      • LIBOR, being a standard upon which almost all derivatives seem to rely, is one of those things that is easily manipulated for results both political and financial.

        • LIBOR is being replaced by the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR), which is controlled by the FED. One more loss of control for Europe.

  2. Caught an MSNBC Black woman blurb on Tucker last night…immediately I felt strange (ok, more strange than normal). In a few moments my mind became clear, the scales were off my eyes, and I realized Joe is RIGHT, the best president ever…and that:

    – The economy is super strong, especially since he took office.
    – Fuel prices are low.
    – Inflation is the lowest in 40 years.
    – We are not in a recession.
    – The SPR is safe because “he’s been doing this for a long time” and who needs a fuel backup, he must know.
    – Jill is a Doctor and a stunning lady.
    – The VP is brilliant and articulate and black.
    – Drag Queen Story Hour is not grooming and better than real education.
    – EV’s powered by wind and solar are the wave of the future to save our planet.
    – Bernie is a moderate.
    – Big Oil are thieves and making the biggest profits ever.
    – Big Pharma have our best interests in mind.
    – Dr. Fauci is a genius.
    – The FBI and DOJ are honest hardworking folks and any dawn raids they do are righteous.
    – All Migrants are asylum seekers and deserve free everything since they will do jobs nobody else can.
    – This country was built by slaves and is still overtly racist.
    – White people are scum, especially the men.
    – Christian’s are deluded and the true evil ones.
    – A baby in the womb is not human.
    – Boys and girls are a construct and interchangeable and surgery to correct God’s mistake is appropriate without parental knowledge.
    – Tank…err (had a breakthru there)…Stacy Abrams will make a great governor and that the new voter law is keeping the vote down and even if she doesn’t get the most votes she should be the winner…again.
    – America is the suckiest country ever.
    …and the newest…Ice is racist because it’s white.

    Oh, almost forgot…I’m now scheduled to get the Covid Vaccine and 4 boosters plus the new ‘fully tested on 8 mice’ version all at once to catch up to the rest of my new homies.

    That is what these clowns want you to believe. Everything they spew is delusional propaganda…nothing but sociopath’s working for Satan, the Father of Lies.

    Other than that, it should be a great day in America…but it’s early.

    • Glad to learn you got your head right.
      Now when we are herded onto the train you will get to ride in the first-class car to the camps 🙂

      • First Class train ride seat secured with Google Mindnumbed Tracker App. Heard there will be snacks.

        That MSNBC bit was gawd awful insane. A shot of good bourbon snapped me out of the stupor, proving adult beverages are good for you.

      • Yup, would have said “Absolutely!, and then some!”, then included all his business dealings were on the up n up and The Big Guy knew nothing, The Laptop is for sure Russian disinformation, and Joe isn’t a cretinous pedophile. Thankfully the adult beverage brought me to my senses.

        What’s worse (like I have to even say it), the “list” was the short version. And worse than that is we get to deal with the destructive aftermath and there seems no end in sight. Bad news everyday from these bums (many R’s included).

        • Ashley is a liar and all those sexual obsessions she’s dealing with as an adult didn’t come from Old Joe molesting her as a teenager. The diary is the product of a twisted and disturbed young lady and has nothing to do with model parents.

          • All of those accounts of Old Joe raping women who worked under him, all of the groping of women and girls, the sniffing and squeezing are pernicious lies told by Republicans who are jealous of his exalted position and his erudite thoughts.

          • Joe is largely unappreciated for his service in the Obama White House. He was the wind under Barack’s wings – the brain trust that saw that regime blossom and bloom. Without Joe, there would have been no Barack because as Joe said so eloquently, “behind every successful black guy, there is a white guy, telling him what to do.”

          • The list is getting nearly as long as those who “didn’t hang or shoot themselves, twice”. Looks like Ol’ Joe is fairly competitive and wants to beat The Clinton’s at their own nefarious game. Everyone needs a goal.

          • I seriously doubt that FJB has the cognitive gray matter to formulate an actual goal beyond the next shot of amphetemines to keep him moving, a bowl movement and maybe a cup of stewed prunes (not necessarily in that order).

  3. Ducey should gin up a version of the Gonzales “come and take it” flag with a shipping container instead of a cannon.

    • He’s about to be replaced by Kari Lake in this election unless it’s rigged again. Kari would fly the Gonzales flag…no doubt.

      • I think she’s going to win despite the obvious fraud that’s happening as we speak. She’s mucho impressive and the dems are in a panic, as they should be. I hope Ducey stands fast against the Biden thugs.

  4. I have quarter that says Biden is no where near the nuke button, I don’t know who has that power but I’ll bet it’s not him… “They” wouldn’t allow her near them either….

  5. If Kama gets her fingers on the nuke button, would she be tempted to nuke Calif in retaliation for Nelson’s willie?

  6. Special Operations Forces – Retasking
    A two prong operation. Neuter long term capability and short term kill off all the operators.

  7. I always wondered when “they” would come after hockey…

    Did Harris really say that? I mean, I know she’s dumb/stupid/ignorant, but geesh…

    Good for Governor Ducey. We need more like him.

    Ah, USC….University for Spoiled Children.

    • Yes, Harris said that. She’s America’s best, a woman of color, an equity election, most popular vice president in American history. California’s brain trust.

  8. When will NFL, NBA, DC Metro and other similar organizations declare and affirm their DEI goals? Asking for a friend…

  9. And there are lots of people who want us to go to a sail-only merchant marine system as it would be better for the environment. Yeah, no. The golden age of sail was full of pain and woe and death and destruction. Steam power and then diesel power have been far more safer for everyone and everything.
