Did you think that Ice Hockey was “safe” for white men?
I wonder if it would be cool if the white men on the team just self-identified as Brittney Griner?

(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.’

* 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.
Newspaper who reported about the accident
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.
