Will you vote for President Trump in November? Here’s a point of view (sermonette).

 

An Update

Elon Musk has agreed (if reports are correct) to host a joint town hall campaign event with President Trump. They will both interact with the audience/town and with each other without teleprompters or notes.  It should be an event worth watching. You know that the mainstream media and the Swamp will be hissing like the demons they are. Then there is Pedo Jo/Ho’s team. How do they respond? Likely, they don’t.

There is talk of Joe stepping aside so Kamala can lead the Democrat Party to victory in November (and save democracy). That would be quite a trick since she’s polling in the 10-15% approval range. Then again, what does it matter if you count the votes?

 

From Levin

Mark R. Levin@marklevinshowMY LEGAL ADVICE TO PRESIDENT TRUMP’S ATTORNEYS: NEXT STEP U.S. SUPREME COURT – This advice was offered before the conviction, but the point stands.

In Bush v. Gore, the United States Supreme Court interceded in the Florida Supreme Court’s deliberations because that Court was changing the Florida voting system on the fly, thereby violating the EQUAL PROTECTION rights of the Florida voters; that is, the state court was establishing new standards for resolving a presidential election.

The Manhattan trial court has done worse. It has taken up a case in which there is exclusive FEDERAL JURISDICTION (involving the Federal Election Campaign Act) even though the federal agencies with authority over enforcing federal campaign laws, the Federal Election Commission and the Southern District of New York/U.S. attorney’s office, declined to bring charges; where the judge is conflicted (his daughter is raising tens of millions of dollars on behalf of her Democrat Party clients); where collateral evidence has been abundant (and has no probative value); where the state or the Court never articulated the elements of the supposed federal offense; the imposition of a gag order on the defendant who is the future Republican nominee for president during the federal campaign for president; and so forth. Moreover, this state court could have easily avoided influencing and interfering with the federal presidential election merely by setting a later time for the case if the court believed it somehow had merit. After all, the state waited years to bring its case.

Therefore, there is not only a federal constitutional equal protection violation in that this state trial court has purposefully interposed itself into the federal presidential election without authority or jurisdiction. It has also violated the future Republican presidential nominee’s federal constitutionally protected due process rights. Furthermore, the voters are to determine the federal election outcome without the interference of a state court attempting to influence the result.

DEI At Work

(Daily Mail) A DEI-fixated dean at UCLA’s world-famous medical school has allowed standards to plummet by discriminating against white and Asian applicants, it is claimed.

The David Geffen School of Medicine in Los Angeles boasts Nobel Prize winners on its faculty and accepts just 173 students out of the 14,000 who apply to it each year.

However, it has plunged from sixth to 18th place in the rankings since Jennifer Lucero was appointed dean of admissions in June 2020 amid claims that the admissions bar for underrepresented minorities is now ‘as low as you could possibly imagine.’

‘All the normal criteria for getting into medical school only apply to people of certain races,’ an admissions officer told the Washington Free Beacon. Lucerno has been accused of flouting California‘s affirmative action ban and hindering the career of a highly qualified doctor because he is a white man.

‘For other people, those criteria are completely disregarded.’ Among the disturbing anecdotes shared are of a student lashing out in an operating room and accusing a surgeon of picking on her after being asked to locate a major artery – a basic medical request.

The Free Beacon reported that the number of students failing tests on basic medical knowledge has increased tenfold in some subjects since 2020.

Most students are now flunking standardized tests on emergency medicine, family medicine, internal medicine, and pediatrics, among some cohorts.

According to one former admissions staff member, the collapse in standards has turned the institution into a ‘failed medical school. ‘

Admitting students on racial criteria has been banned in California since 1996 and outlawed federally since a Supreme Court ruling last year.

But faculty at the school said that Lucero has ignored bans on affirmative action and allegedly told colleagues she wanted a highly qualified white male candidate pushed down the residency rank list because ‘we have too many of his kind’.

The business was suspended for the day in 2021 when a Native American applicant was rejected, and a furious Lucero made committee members sit through a two-hour lecture on Indigenous history delivered by her sister.

She is accused of stuffing the 25-strong admissions committee with her hand-picked members and terrorizing dissenters into silence by implying they are racist and threatening them with diversity training sessions.

‘We were always outnumbered,’ an admissions officer told the website.

‘Other people would get upset when we brought up GPA.’

 

I won’t make you ID it.

After Martin XB-51 lost the Light Tactical Bomber fly-off competition to Canberra, Martin was selected to build the Canberra (designated B-57) under license. In early 1951, Martin Company offered a new blended design that incorporated the top features of British Canberra and its XB-51.

** 70% of Americans (per WSJ) live paycheck to paycheck. I’m not asking how you stack up with your neighbors, but what if the cheese stopped? How would you react? What would you do? Preppers often don’t take that into account as carefully as they should.

** Covid-19 explained.

** Summary: The Biden regime has made a big deal out of constructing a pier on the coast of Gaza, which will supposedly allow the delivery of needed emergency aid to civilians there. Never mind that the real problem in Gaza is that the pirates in Hamas steal all the aid that is delivered. Somebody thought the optics would be good, and we would get points for helping the Palestinians.

A piece of the pier has broken loose and washed ashore. An Army vessel sent to retrieve it has also washed ashore. American military personnel, from what we are told we should still consider the world’s mightiest military, are standing on the beach watching helplessly. Operations at the pier have been suspended indefinitely.

Parting Shot

It’s lawn flamingos for other people. In some places, you can make and paint a big damned rock and place it. Creativity gets extra points. It’s not unlike painting a Bangalore torpedo to make it look like a fallen log. Add a little concrete for texture. The Advanced Performance Bangalore Torpedo uses an aluminum body filled with two kilograms of DPX1 high-density pressed explosive. A unique and patented design feature is incorporated, which, in combination with the DPX1 explosive, provides enhanced blast and fragmentation effects, which provide an enhanced cutting capability against both simple and complex wire entanglements. The APBT can cut through up to six millimeters of steel plating. It makes a damned fine anti-personnel command detonated landmine and makes a Claymore mine look like a child’s toy. We experimented with them at Camp Billy Machen (Niland, CA) in the 90s.

  2. An ingenious Rhodesian farmer came up with a wonderful anti-terrorist ploy back in the 1970’s. He cleared all the brush and trees from around his farm buildings, leaving a 200-300 yard “beaten zone” without cover… except for a few ornamental “rock gardens” here and there. Several times over the next few years, terrorists used those “rock gardens” as cover to creep closer to his farmhouse before riddling it with AK-47’s. He would wait until he was sure there were a few of them behind the rocks, then detonate the dynamite he’d thoughtfully planted beneath the boulders. Next morning, a quick smoothing over with a farm tractor, a few more rocks emplaced, and he had his rock garden back again – until the next group of terrorists arrived. It worked half-a-dozen times or so until the terrorists caught on and began avoiding his place like the plague. According to a friend of mine when I was on deployment up there, his “body count” was well into double digits.

    The plan was adopted by farmers in more vulnerable areas of South West Africa (today Namibia) and South Africa, with similar success.

  4. Teaching booby traps / concealment.

    Back in the 80’s two of us hollowed out a girlee magazine substituted plasticine for four ounces C4 and put a tiny electronic buzzer inside then left it on the floor of our demonstration house ( you could see about half a naked women).

    Trainees went through one at a time. I think we got every trainee with that one.

    1. Back in the late 90’s for me. Buddy and I rigged battery powered booby traps with mostly scrounged materials to show how easy it was.

      Wire was scrounged.
      Electric contacts made with wooden clothes pins and nickle plated thumb tacks.
      Trip wires tensioned with rubber bands.
      Detonation simulated with those old camera flash cubes.

  5. Property perimeter protection Nomes- The Danes call them “Nisse”…they are purported to be mischievous, especially after being filled with tannerite and projectiles. Immediately thought of that cabin scene in Angel Has Fallen…which works too if you have access to such…uhhh…”materials”: Old bull, young bull”, heh…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6arLWo_tD0A

    1. It’s not difficult to do. If yo do tripwires in the mountains, they’re triggered by passing deer and elk. That’s why tannerite is good. You can shoot the key “rock” from a distance.

  6. I would pay one thousand dollars American money to see Levin on that stage with Musk and Trump.
    .
    If the cheese stopped, I would “endeavor to persevere” whilst considering alternatives as suggested by Chief Lone Wattie.

  7. That pier – guess they never read the warning about building on shifting sand. Maybe they thought they’d burst in flames if they opened the Book?

    1. No flowery theological talk, straight to point answers to the most asked questions of man’s existence.

  8. read somewhere, maybe here, they sent 16 trucks of aid into gaza. only 5 made it thru, the rest were hijacked…i guess you could say i’m on govt cheese too since both my retirement checks come from there. that’s why i have a substantial stockpile instead of lots of vacation photos, and means to defend it.

    1. Some certainly did, but then the Germans were also pushing the limits of cutting edge technology. Reminds me of funny story I read.

      Immediate post WWII in Germany. Seems we wanted to move a Dornier Do 335 Pfeil from one airfield to another, but had no pilot checked out in one. So a German pilot was “enlisted” to make the flight. At the arrival field the 335 arrives blasting over the field, pulls up to dump speed, then lands. Pilot climbs out wearing lederhosen. Shortly after, two P-51’s wander over to verify the 335 has landed.

      Between the lines. I’m sure the 335 only had enough fuel to make the flight. Pilot figured what the hell, and went flat out. His two escorts saw no point in giving chase and just followed.

  9. How wars get started? Training grenades. Circa 1960’s the Army had old hollowed out “pineapple” grenades which used a cotton bag of black powder and a cork. They went off with a “pop” and released a small cloud of white smoke. Very anti-climatic. Tom O’Connor and I were doing a sweep along the East German border wire with a SCR 625. Two East German and one Russian officer in their “Parade Walking Out” uniforms were 20′ on the other side of the wire MFing us. To my complete surprise Tom pulled out and tossed in their direction a training grenade. They dove into the mud,; pop went the grenade. They jumped up, presumably using vile curse words, and one in anger picked up the grenade and hurled it at us. Nice, the only evidence left on their side was a cork.

    Aftermath? The next day we were called into an office where an irate Major had questions. We, of course, went dumb G.I. “Huh”?

    1. If there is to be WW3, you’re definitely the one to instigate it, WSF – you and Banner.

  10. Looks like the hiker in the opening graphic is headed Out Where The Busses Don’t Run..
    .
    I’d gladly PAY to watch the Town Hall with Trump and Musk.
    .
    The XB-51 was also used as the “Gilbert XF-120” in the movie Towards The Unknown starring William Holden.
    .
    We have a Trust. SLW is always on top of these things. I’m truly blessed.

  11. I’m most impressed by the above “Rock Garden Defense”! Excellent. But I’m also concerned, your two June posts seems less than happy, per headline. You’re clearly i need of a morale boost, research *Melania Painting Hillary.

    1. LSP was kind enough to call me and ask if I was “gloomy.” We had a nice chat about culture and I assured him that I’m not. That said, the state of the USA is not where I’d like to see it. It’s clearly not the country that I grew up in. The values expressed by the government and their acolytes in the media are far from the values of many and possibly most of my fellow Americans. Long and short, I’m fine. Blogging is sometimes calling it as I see it and sometimes tossing spaghetti against the wall to see what you all make of things.
