Bullet Points

* The corporate media is propagating another campaign to stow fear over another COVID variant as the federal government attempts to use the bioweapon to perpetuate an indefinite state of emergency. BA.5, an Omicron subvariant, also known as ‘Ninja,’ is now the dominant coronavirus strain in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control… be afraid, be very afraid. Wear your obedience mask when you’re home alone or driving alone in your car or it will get you. It’s a good idea to follow the rest of the lemmings into the surf.

* Ed Morrissey at Hotair reports on a piece from far-left Politico where Democrat governors are finally waking up to the Biden nightmare.   Biden’s policies are a nightmare and his messaging is worse.  No wonder they’re worried. Who says America can’t find its way to a national consensus? Republicans have considered Joe Biden intellectually bankrupt for decades.  Remember, he was the life insurance policy for the Half-Blood Prince. Now Harris-the-Ho is the life insurance policy. Who knew there was somebody more inept than creepy, corrupt Joe?

* Reposting a comment from BillB on the Friday blog: TPTB will have to outlaw the knowledge of guns, gunpowder, and projectiles. They tried it with rocketry. In the mid-1960s, I bought a book named “The Handbook of Amateur Rocketry”. A lot of good information on building your own rockets from scratch. I can’t find anything like it still in publication. I heard that the BATFE somehow outlawed that genre of books, maybe not outright (1st Amendment, but…); however, at the least, they pressured the publishers to quit publishing “dangerous” information. I’m sure that BATFE would feel more comfortable burning the books at 451 Fahrenheit.

* Drug Smuggling: ‘I was a mule carrying drugs to Morocco‘: As Cameron Diaz comes out of retirement, the actress claims she was once ‘used’ to smuggle substances – weeks before landing a life-changing role in The Mask. A guy that I wrote screenplays with was in drug rehab with Cameron Diaz.  We sold two screenplays. The best one to Maverick Films (Madonna) was never made. The other was hacked up by the buyer/producer/director/star David White, filmed but didn’t even make it to video.

* Former Vice President Mike Pence has made an interesting move in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision overturning Roe v. Wade and handing the issue back to the states for them to decide. Team Pence’s political action group has dramatically increased its digital ad spending, signaling that he will be running to try and beat President Trump in 2024. Many view Pence as a species of weak traitor. It will be interesting to see how that turns out. Pence would finish 9th in a 10 person primary, two votes ahead of Chris Christie.

* There was a time when I would have written the GPPP off as a conspiracy theory but that does not appear to be the case. Key members of the Brandon Regime including the Hollow Man himself tout the program as the way forward.

 

Sunday is Range Day during Gun Pride Month

You can pray at the range. In fact, many people pray HARDER at the range than they do elsewhere.  That makes the range a species of church – stands to reason.

  1. Bullet Points. There will always be a new variant of COVID just like there are annual variants of the flu. We will see how many years it takes to convince people that masks have a deleterious effect in the long run. I have long thought that it seemed as the world’s population went up the average IQ of the entire population decreased. No data to back that up but it sure seems like it is the case.

    Outlawing knowledge. Hard to do. I do agree with you that a lot of books on “interesting subjects” regarding energetic materials are harder to find now than they used to be. Used book stores are a good source though. At least guns are focused in their effect. There is a lot of dangerous stuff in the world that could cause wide spread casualties.

    • I hadn’t seen this website before. Don’t know whether to thank you or ask for a loan, sigh.

      I’ll go with thank you for now.

    • The Handbook of Amateur Rocketry is available on Ebay & Amazon. The latest edition I see is 7, published in 2004, updated by the original author’s son. The 6th edition can be had for under $6.

    • I did get the name wrong. It is just “Handbook of Amateur Rocketry”. I found and still have a pdf photo copy. boron, a couple of those books appear to be by the same author and maybe the same information. Thing is, those are all used books. The issue is the information seems to be suppressed. I did find one book on Amazon that described how to make your own solid rocket motors.

  2. Pretty sure I checked out The Handbook of Amateur Rocketry from the High School library…because it was cool subject and I loved making and launching my own versions of Estes Rockets (stacked ‘D’ engines could put stuff into the stratosphere, or so we tried). If this book is “banned” I suppose The Anarchists Cookbook is REALLY banned. Teacher in High School (mid-70’s) showed the class his copy, didn’t see another until a friend showed me his, ex law enforcement. Knowledge is critical to success…in combating the anarchists, that is.

    GPPP- Nothing would surprise me anymore with these people drunk on their own self importance thinking they can/should run the world. God will have the last word. In the mean time continuing to expose their nefarious activities may help stall them.

    Covid Variants – Can these people get any more transparently stupid? Do they still believe half population is that conditioned to accept this as gospel? Oh wait, scratch that last part, half are that easily led.

    I believed Pence was a good man, and thought the Trump/Pence team was effective. Now, hard to tell, but certainly wouldn’t vote for him, we need a pit bull in there, not a Boy Scout.

    Haven’t been to a formal range in a while, apparently I am missing out on…ahem…church (small ‘c”).

    • M 80s securely taped to the front of an Estes booster engine to ignite the fuse and balsa fins glued right to the engine was a lot of 1960s fun.

      The Anarchists Cookbook. Careful some of the recipes are not completely correct and might be a bit more touchy than what you would desire.

      • Hehe, we tried that! Some rockets we never found, likely got plowed under in the cornfield or landed in some tree half a mile away.

        Yeah, I’m beyond amateur “chemistry” these days. Managed to not set the house on fire as a kid. Good to verify when someone writes down recipes for such things.

          • Nothing better than going to the hobby store to pick out the newest model, build it, then try to finish it perfectly (always that one kid who’s rockets were top notch or got to build the Apollo II Saturn V). And the launch sound: ffpppsstt. We learned skills.

          • Amateur model rocketry was just what we did and you’d save up for new motors providing that your rocket didn’t just fly off – I had that happen a couple times.

          • Paul,
            when not all of the three main engines of that Saturn V ignite at launch, it does a credible copy of some of those Soviet rockets, minus the command detonation sequence. End result resembles a piledriver effect when it buries itself while still under thrust. Might have reached 100 feet apogee. Fortunately my sister’s mouse was not resident in the capsule for the first (and last) test flight, although the chicken egg stand-in actually survived impact. Nothing of the rocket stages was salvageable, after digging it out of the school athletic field. Home was literally a hop over the side fence of that field.

  3. Retired Lt. Gen. Gary Volesky, the Army’s former top spokesman, responded to a tweet from Jill Biden that said the rights of women had been stolen in the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

    “For nearly 50 years, women have had the right to make our own decisions about our bodies. Today, that right was stolen from us,” Jill Biden tweeted. Jill Brandon-Biden is an alleged birthing person.

    “Glad to see you finally know what a woman is,” Volesky said.

    “Lt. Gen. Theodore Martin, commanding general of the Combined Arms Center, has suspended retired Lt. Gen. Gary Volesky from performing duties as a Highly Qualified Expert — Senior Mentor pending the outcome of the commander’s inquiry,” the Army told Fox News.

  4. The Obama > Biden > Harris hierarchy is like that story about the wish-granting object that has to be sold at a cheaper price than what you bought it for. It’s hard to imagine a person more sadly inept than Harris, yet she’d have to find such a person to serve as HER life insurance policy. And that she rose to her current office essentially through prostitution is no excuse. I know literal drug addicts turned-to-prostitution-to-support-their-habits who have more sense than Harris.

    Not often I’m part of “many” but I do tend to view Pence in that light.

    • Xavier Becerra HHS Secretary slated to be Harris’ stooge. He’s dumber and yet at the same time more corrupt.

  5. The difference between the two objects is that one is expected to get lost, and the other one is a 10mm 6-point socket.

    “Stow” fear, or “Stoke” fear?

    Democrat governors are finally waking up to the Biden nightmare.

    Buyer’s remorse? Are they afraid they’ll get Sri Lanka’d?

    Model Rocketry is very regulated and restricted. Anything other than the little “Estes” rocket engines requires a license to possess, AND get reloaded. A good Boeing Buddy of mine has been into that for about 20 years now. He’s gone supersonic, and is knocking on the door of 100,000′ altitude.

    Too bad Chris Farley’s estate doesn’t get royalties….

    • Back in the ’60s when I bought the book there weren’t so many regulations. Doing a little research, those didn’t come along till the 1970s relating to explosives and therefore rocket motors.

  6. Regarding the Covidiocracy, went to my wife’s doctor last week and the Kabuki Theater was in full force. People at the door asking the same damned stupid questions, taking temperatures and masks required. Private business, need the doc, so we ‘complied.’

    Unfortunately the masks did not filter out the smell of unwashed and overly perfumed people, including the two complete idiots who were at the door asking the stupid questions.

    I swear the doc’s company is keeping the Covidiocracy up because the practice can’t fire the two very diverse individuals who were acting all Cerebus at the door.

    Elsewhere in Free Florida only the pathetic leftist idiots (of which there are far too many in my area, being Gainesville, FL (Home of the Gators, the Danny Rollins serial murders and Charlie Pell)) are still doing the maskrova. Including a fair number of double maskers and glovers.

    Gah. Meanwhile the only people suffering from Der Kovid are idjits who have destroyed their immune system taking ‘flu vaccines.’ Yeah, right.

    Pence is dead to me. He did a mostly good job of being VP, which requires the stooge to stay quiet and sit in the corner and not cause any problems for the sitting president (a job which Biden did veeeeery pooooorly) until he blew it on the election thing. Dead to me. McStain is more alive, that’s how dead Pence is to me. It’s either Trump or DeSantis or Trump and DeSantis.

    As to the wymyn’s sportsmoneyballplayer…. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAaaaaaaaaa…. Love it. Especially since I consider the movie “Midnight Express” to be a light-hearted comedy romp (doesn’t make it to Rom-Com status because they don’t get into the whole ‘dropped soap’ thingy much in the movie.) Yes, I really love the movie and have laughed myself silly the 3-4 times I watched it, until they get to the sad part when the human waste disposal unit gets let out of prison.

    What a spectacular twit. Expects her color and her sportsmoneyballstatus and her sexual proclivities would make her untouchable in zenophobic and racist and homophobic Mother Russia. She’s lucky that the Soviets still aren’t in power so that her chance of being shipped to Siberia are only about 15% or so, depending on how much of a maggot she acts in prison.

    And as to Fumbles McPuddingbrain, the resident-in-chief, I know people who still support him over even a rotten avocado, and those people are now dead to me. I’ve got their addys ready so when things go sideways I can raid and add to my stash. And I’ll get away with it by self-identifying as a LGBPDQRSVP BIPOC member of the NFAC so my local State Attorney (who is a wimp) won’t charge me even if I get caught.)

    • Shave your legs, walk like a duck, put on the uniform of a full admiral, national health service and I think you have transactional immunity.
