At the Pumps

I have a friend who gave me a lot of grief about President Trump. It’s ok because I’m not an apologist.  For all his flaws,  President Trump is a stellar patriot and it rubbed some people the wrong way.  It’s true, Trump is a New York real estate mogul and some of his NYC-isms rubbed me the wrong way too, but in a field of goats, he stood out as a marble statue of virtue.

Today my friend refers to the 45 presidency as the good old days. Nowhere is that more evident than at the pumps.


Trannies at War in Ukraine

The US military is always telling us how well transexuals fight, which is why they offer free gender reassignment surgery, right?  Let’s see if the experiment works.

If nothing else,  they can be used as cannon fodder to draw fire.


Damaged but not Sunk

March 7, 2022, the Russian Nav’s Project 22160 patrol ship Vasily Bykov was reportedly damaged by a Ukrainian multiple launch rocket system (MLRS).

Vasily Bykov is a patrol boat of the Russian Navy belonging to the class Project 22160, of which it is the first ship built.

The Project 22160-class patrol ship is 94m-long, 14-m-wide, and 3.4m- high, has a standard displacement of 4,550 tons, and can accommodate up to 80 personnel.

The patrol and maximum speeds of the ship are 16kt and 30kt respectively. The ship has a cruising range of 6,000 nautical miles at patrol speeds and an endurance of 60 days.

The Project 22160-class is armed with one 57mm А-220М naval gun on the bow of the main deck. With a rate of fire of 300rpm, the gun is designed to defeat air, surface and coastal targets.

Two 14.5mm heavy machine guns are mounted on the bridge deck. The ship is also equipped with two DP-65 grenade launchers and one Gibka air defense missile turret mount, armed with eight Igla man-portable air-defense systems (MANPADS).


Have you already forgotten about the Canadian Truckers?

Emergency Actor

A song/video about the time an emergency was called for trucks, hot tubs, Canadian flags, & bouncy castles!



Germany, the world’s biggest buyer of Russian gas, gets over half of its gas, about a third of its coal and a quarter of its oil from Russia, according to official figures. They said that they can’t afford to stop buying energy but will send weapons to Ukraine to fight the Russian Army. There is a duality at work and possibly a cautionary tale that might be revisited in the future.


Syrians Fighting with Russia in Ukraine?

Talk about cannon fodder.

WASHINGTON—Moscow is recruiting Syrians skilled in urban combat to fight in Ukraine as Russia’s invasion is poised to expand deeper into cities, according to U.S. officials.

An American assessment indicates that Russia, which has been operating inside Syria since 2015, has in recent days been recruiting fighters from there, hoping their expertise in urban combat can help take Kyiv and deal a devastating blow to the Ukraine government, according to four American officials. The move points to a potential escalation of fighting in Ukraine, experts said.




  1. Even though they are an old enemy, it’s pretty sad to see the mighty Russian Bear hiding behind 3rd world mercenary gangs. That’s as if we invaded Venezuela, and had to hire Mexican Cartel goons to help us fight.


  2. Apparently he needs soldiers experienced in urban warfare, ie: house to house, street to street, down and dirty fighters. At least that’s the prevailing opinion by the so-called experts. Who really knows at this juncture.

    • I honestly don’t know when a boat becomes a ship. Because it’s classified as a “patrol boat”, I would think that it’s a boat. All submarines are boats no matter the size.

      It may be the area of operation too (Black Sea cruising vs open ocean)? There are wiser heads than mine who visit the blog and may wish to weigh in.

  3. I had an interaction in comments yesterday with a guy defending Biden.
    I called him a moron and he called me out on that saying that it hurts rational conversation.
    I had struggled to not call him an idiot.
    I realize now that he is a mind-controlled zombie, but in a spiritual sense.
    He is totally blinded to reality. What other explanation can there be?

    • ed, they reject religion but humans are innately religious, therefor they take on leftism, wokism, atheism etc as their religion unconsciously. their instincts require that they defend it to the death. they cannot be reasoned with. my sister is one. its weird because i know she sees the logic doesn’t add up yet she refuses to acknowledge it. i can sometimes see the battle going on in her eyes as she tries to make sense of it. she tells me not to bring it up, but she can’t stop herself from bringing it up. i’m hoping that whatever is in the water up north will fade out of her system as she has moved back down south now.

  4. I haven’t yet read that note, and before I open that closet door, I’m getting my next door neighbor, a retired LEO, to back me up.
    I’ve seen rumors that Putin may have terminal cancer. I don’t know if there’s any truth to it, but they are out there.

    • There are a lot of theories to explain Putin. The nature of the man himself and the decline of the USA – we sent a really stupid whore to Europe to deal with the war by way of example – gave him a green light.

  5. “Syrians Fighting with Russia in Ukraine?”
    I remember reading somewhere in some book/novel? for Am. Hist. back in college that Lincoln encouraged Irish immigration into the Northern states for the purpose of helping to return the “errant South” back into the fold.
    This was over 60 years ago. Is my memory fogging?

    • I haven’t read that. There were very serious large-scale riots in NY by the Irish when negroes received preferential treatment at the hands of Mr. Lincoln.

  6. Ukrainian tranny’s- How many would cut off their man-parts to not fight? Would prove their psychosis or commitment…can’t have it both ways pal.

    Germany went all-in with [not] “Renewables”…then abandoned it after last Winter as unreliable and are now beholding to Russia while trying to support NATO. Tough darts. The GND/GR folks are trying the same here, obvious infrastructure destruction. What if a local community said “No more [not] green crap here, we’re installing an SMR.”?

    Fuel- The Hologram will NOT open domestic oil production and shut down Russian imports. Gee, any guess how that’ll affect pump prices. Warp speed to the abyss for America at the hands of these cretins. The Hateful Redhead said “there are currently 9,000 exploration/drilling permits not being utilized.” Gee, why would that be Jen, you POS?

    Time for the Keystone boys to restart…tell the Fed’s to eff themselves…sideways…with a rusty pitchfork. (Can you tell I’m ticked, watching this wreckage real time?)

        • Very cool….combine the two for affect, call ourselves The Niebieski Związek Jaszczurczy Group (sounds innocuous enough).

          Knowing The Vacuous One, he’d outlaw blue paint and shoulder patches.

          • The color blue would be construed as racist. Take this for example: William Wallace – “They may take away our lives, but they’ll never take our freedom!” That sounds like Canadian truckers and we know that they were composed of racists and race-traitors.. The Castro bastard reaffirmed that.

            PS – “Stephen is my name and I’m the most wanted man on my island, except I’m not on my island of course.”

          • I’m in full “ignore the idiot leadership mode.

            Piling on with Stephen: “Just when we thought all hope was lost, our noble saviors have arrived.”

            And who might they be for us? Count me in…find out who I really am when rubber meets the road.

  7. Electric vehicles. A Boulder based YouTube vehicle test site recently ran a Rivan towing a trailer from Boulder to Silverthorne on I-70; a standard test they do with all trucks. They had to pause and recharge at a WalMart EV charging site in Frisco just to insure they could get back to Boulder. Point being, real world, EV vehicles are suitable for only short range specific tasks. The likelihood of technology being able to overcome the limitations, is, IMO, as likely as (P)regressives pulling their heads out of their_________.

    • I’m beginning to wonder if the short-range limitation is more deliberate than first appears on the surface

    • Electric car charging technology is slow. The charging stations are not sufficient to support 100% electric. Charging stations are not distributed sufficiently. The grid is insufficiently robust. They don’t work well on heavy grades or pulling heavy loads up grades, etc.

      • Pete Buttigieg is a moron, a complete waste of an empty suit who is so clueless about where energy comes from and the actual size of the USA that he goes on national tv to espouse the EV charade as if it’s some sort of nirvana. “Charging stations across the land!” What a putz. Fewer than 2% of vehicles on the roads are EV or Hybrids, even with taxpayer fueled subsidies they can’t give them away, because they are less than impractical for 98% of Americans. Just another part of their agenda to cripple America. Poxing from a distance on yet another clown with power (learned from LSP that hexing could rebound so sticking with poxing).

  8. Depending on which set of ‘definitions’ you’re looking at, a ship is a large vessel intended for oceangoing or at least deep-water transport, and a boat is anything else. And Xiden is directly responsible for the increase in gas prices, the administration’s dissembling on it not withstanding.

  9. Since this has gone way beyond “people Unclear On The Concept Of Cause and Effect”, I’m saying it has to be deliberate.

    And like all of us, I wonder who’s really pulling the strings….

  10. Wow. Russia made a Littoral Combat Ship that actually can fight. And looks good. Dammit.

    As to Germany? Screw them. They made the bed they are now in. Not my monkey, not my circus.

    As to Syrians? Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. Send radical fundamentalists into an Orthodox country and expect the Orthodox to act mellow about this? And I’m sure Poland is looking at this and going “We’ve seen this before.” How much more insane are the Russkies are going to get? (No, don’t answer that, I can and it’s ugly, as I don’t believe for a minute that the Russkies have gotten rid of all of their chemical and biological weapons.)

  11. Here in Pinkoville, Former State of Rhode Island, home heating oil went from 3 bucks a gallon to 5 bucks a gallon in 2 weeks. Gasoline went up 58 cents in a week. Average regular unleaded price is now higher than the former 2008 record.

    Thank you, Marxism. You definitely have all the good answers.


  12. As far a Russia or Ukraine goes, I don’t have a dog in the fight. Nor do I want one. I have passed through both countries traveling and had no problems with Russia but I felt that I was under constant surveillance until I left. Ukraine was quite different. I had to buy a 2 day visa to stay overnight to catch a flight the next day. At the airport the next day my “papers” were not in order. To get them in order cost me three $100 bills and a very good fake Rolex sub-mariner. To add to my injury, my toolbox got emptied after I checked it at the airport.

    I view this as a neighboring country that is very corrupt, with gangs funneling drugs and sex workers across the border, and unchecked illegal immigration that has had one corrupt government after another has been invaded by their neighboring country that is tired of their crap. Does this sound familiar? What I do not understand is why the Russians are sending in the second string team with very worn war equipment in very limited numbers. This makes me question Russia’s war making ability. I think the big Russian bear is a old, wore out, dancing bear that has been photo shopped in all images to make themselves to look bigger and better than what they are.
