Disney – On the March

(from Zerohedge) You should read the entire article if you haven’t.

This week Mandalorian actress Gina Carano – who played former Rebel Alliance soldier Cara Dune – was fired from the show and dropped by her agency, after she shared a TikTok post comparing the current divided political climate to the treatment of Jewish people in pre-WWII Germany, saying that “the government first made their own neighbors hate them simply for being Jews.”

Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbors…even by children. Because history is edited, most people today don’t realize that to get to the point where Nazi soldiers could easily round up thousands of Jews, the government first made their own neighbors hate them simply for being Jews. How is that any different from hating someone for their political views”

 

 

I thought…

Of turning my firearms over to the government, but I did a background check and found that none of them were mentally stable.

 

Tornado Etiquette 

Every Midwesterner I know has been properly drilled in tornado safety from a young age and knows exactly what they should do to keep themselves safe. And yet they do exactly as pictured in the bottom image (above) every time a tornado comes around.

 

Life in the Swamp

The rank and file are one sort of American, but the brass are quite another (more here).

As the President himself pointed out, many of the Generals and national security bigwigs have their fortunes tied to the continuation of precisely the never-ending war policies that Trump successfully ran against in 2016.

One thing is certain. War is a racket.

And fuel prices are creeping up faster than Biden on a twelve-year old.

So, there is no choice.

 

Elites

Tsar Nicholas II and his cousin, King George V, wearing German military uniforms, Berlin, 1913. Elites love to dress up in military uniforms, wearing medals that they received for being elite. I expect that we’ll see the Silicon Valley types in garish and expensive uniforms soon. Maybe Bezos and the Cuomo brothers? Bill Gates may end up as a Fleet Admiral because he always fancied the sea.

 

Watershed

Watershed of Río de la Plata covers an area of approximately 3,180,000 km², making it the fifth largest in the world. There is a as much swamp in Brazil as there is in DC.

 

Costa Rica

When the Americans invaded, they brought their electric cars with them. Here is a map of charging stations in Central America.

It’s very progressive.

 

Globally

Ten million people contracted tuberculosis in 2018. Of those, 1.5 million people died.

Did you know? (do you care?) Were you afraid for your life? Did you wear masks, were schools canceled, small business closed and was the economy shut down?

No?

Why?

Because you weren’t goaded into being afraid. The disease was not weaponized for political gain.

Pablo’s Paperwork

The one day siege killed half of Colombia’s 25 Supreme Court Justices. It is as though that Pablo Escobar funded the assault.  His criminal records (originals and copies, kept in separate locations) were among those destroyed of the course of M-19’s occupation of the building and the police assault.

  1. Good to remember the “elites” killed several hundred million people last century, all for perfectly good glorious causes no one can remember now. And now they are getting ready to do it again.

  2. “And fuel prices are creeping up faster than Biden on a twelve-year old.”

    Best line I’ve heard all week. Beauty. Praying his EO pen runs out of ink.

    Over at Adrianne’s she said (while in Costco), “Looks like a TB ward in here.” TB was reintroduced here from southern border infiltrators…crickets.

    Biden has announced masks until 2022 now. What a piece of… Next week he may start wearing a pseudo military uniform, with sword. I say,”Go for it, man.”

    • I like sci-fi, and I have traditionally liked Disney. That includes the Mandalorian. But at some point you have to draw a line, if only for the sake of your own dignity. Disney wants to be at the very heart of the swamp. They work at it. I don’t know Gina’s family well, but I met most of them in Reno back when we were running high end drone tests at Stead Field, north of town. They have money, they have balls, and they’re patriots. The apple didn’t fall far from the tree.

      • What killed Disney for me was the humanization of all the Disney villains. Sorry, Disney, but fairy-tale villains are villains for a reason.

        Take out the Moral passion play that fairy tales are supposed to be and you remove the message.

        Screw Disney.

        They started getting weird(er) after Disney died.

        • There were a lot of gender-confused people who moved into creative management roles once Walt took the big bounce and while creative, they were also weird.

  3. War is a Racket. General Smedley Butler.
    Col Benjamin Howard USMC Ret’d (blogger Mustang) and I talked about him and the topic a couple shows ago.
    Biden is running the racket that Trump tried to stifle.

  4. Part of my job description is to position ourselves to watch for adverse weather. Hail bigger than a dime, rotating cloud formations, and wind speeds higher then 58 mph. (When the Johnson grass in the ditch lays completely over). Our job is made infinitely harder by morons out storm chasing and rubber necking. The trick is to put yourself where the storm isn’t going. No easy feat.

    • Midwestern storms are legendary.

      Which is why people enjoy putting themselves in harm’s way.

      Thanks for doing what you do.

      • Weld County, CO is something like #2 or #3 in the country for tornadoes.
        Fortunately they are usually F1 or F2. As they move East into Nebraska and/or Kansas they get stronger.
        In May 2008 a EF3 went by Windsor, CO. I had a truck parked about 1/4 mile from the North edge and the combination of hail and flying junk severely damaged it. Not a huge loss financially, it was a 1986 Mitsubishi Mighty Max, but a decent little truck.

        I’ve driven by tornado damage in the Midwest and South. Glad I wasn’t there!

        • I haven’t heard progs say that the weather tax will stop tornadoes, but they’re always on about how they can stop hurricanes. No problem, just add money and when you’ve paid enough…”Trust me, I’m from the government.” It always reminds me of a preacher in a tent show/service – with fake healings, fire, brimstone, and buckets to take your cash – Just like Jesus??

    • The constant spew of lies and wickedness only works if the fiction of the clothed emperor remains.

      War is Peace
      Freedom is Slavery
      Ignorance is Strength

  5. I liked the tornado/storm warning infographic. That’s me! Right there on the porch, watching it come down like Ahab.

    Nice SAS moustache photo too. The PFC’s trying to emulate it… kyrie eleison…

  6. Top panel of the tornado cartoon reminds me of a Richard Scarry children’s book, specifically the grocery store where the bin has exactly 5 apples, and there are exactly two bunches of bananas, etc. As a wee child I was concerned for the poor animals doing their shopping in that store — stuff would run out right away! ☹️

    Anyway, if your supplies consist of exactly four tins of food, and what looks like a gallon of bottled water, total, you’re doing it wrong. Same with having a single flashlight.

    I commented on Gina Carano elsewhere, so I’ll keep it short here. They’re out to get her personally for various things, including mocking the “pronouns” insanity, but it’s also a proxy war between the forces (allusion unintended) of Woke Star Wars (the Kennedy camp) and Star Wars for normal people (Favreau camp). Personally I liked the original three movies, but was never a real fan the way some people got into it. They were fun space fantasy that happened to get the archetypes right, but they were lousy science fiction (which doesn’t at all make them bad movies).

    #cancelGina has turned into #cancelDisney+. Apparently the honchos at Disney are stunned by the backlash. Too bad, so sad.

    • Maybe the threat of global warming isn’t as severe as advertised and we won’t all die in 4 years from burning to death?

      Can we pay less tax?

      • We can always wish, but when listening to the climate congregation with their eschatological message I guess there is no way we will experience reduced tax and duties.

        • Our leaders assure us that the only safety is in more taxation, because they are like parents to us, they know what’s best, and they are so much better at spending our money than we are.

  7. I approve of the Midwesterners on the porch. It’s not as though the tornado is moving across the ground at Mach 5; there’s plenty of time to go downstairs if necessary.

    Hiding in the basement because some yo-yo working for Our Masters turned on a siren seems like a bad plan, to me. Plus, why didn’t those urban-looking college kids bring the guns downstairs with them? Geeze.

    -Kle.
