James Howard Kunstler, here's his website, is a very smart guy and a good writer. Who, like thousands of othe very bright guys and gals who are also good writers, has only a small audience among the sane and informed among us who are attempting to save the Republic. Wickedpedia (see what I did there? Using a wiki that tells the truth to expose the wicked wiki that lies all the time) said he "published a debunked vaccine conspiracy theory" (debunked in the minds of the sheeple I suppose, if they stopped grazing long enough) and noted that he "named hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin as "effective" treatments (well, they are effective and suppressing the information and convincing people not to use them - a very energetic propaganda campaign by the cabal - and refusing to allow their use in the medical industry killed many. Thus the above comment is quite appropriate. People are dropping like flies, and at an increasing rate. How long before it finally bites them? Like most everything else, hard to say.
Friend just dropped by. Actually was expecting her, little early. Past lunch time anyway. Smoke (middays are usually Al Capones) and maybe an early libation. Yeah, I know. The general always used that expression, and while I long ago stopped bein' a cigar snob, he had a pretty good show. Smart guy, and didn't just talk about seegars the whole time. And I ain't drivin' any more today. Seeya in a bit.

Okey-dokey. Anyone remember the Martian Manhunter? Long time ago I read a few of the comics. Seemed like someone was always sayin' "Okey-Dokey". Idunno. Like to go read some of them old comics some of'em got collections in reprints, got a few of the Marvel Conan ones way back, pretty good. Most of'em went by the original books. Hate to see what they doin' with it now. Or would Conan somehow survive in woke form. What scares me is he probably would. Pretty much all pop culture is in that pit of ultimate depravity now. If you hear me scream once in a while it's because you're killing me too.
Should I have a snort now? It's after 1600. Probably take a nap afterwards anyway. Get ready for tonight. Brandy for later, how bout a little Irish Mist? Nah, bout same as drinkin brandy. Maybe a little Black Velvet? Still got most of that bottle of peach flavored I got last week. Not bad. Lessee...
OK, whatever I was gonna talk about. Seems Elon Musk is the big story lately. Dumped a lot of the goods on Twitter. Not much we didn't already know or suspect pretty strongly, but he 'brought the receipts' as they say nowadays. Lefties goin' nuts of course. Worse than having their private party crashed everybody talkin' about what dirtbags they are. And they can just shut up and hope it'll quiet down and they can more on to another scam. Nah, gotta whine and say stupider stuff tryin' to be clever than they were before. Fun to watch, but we still got this looming apocalypse, and ain't but a few of us trying to stop it. So we're reduced to preparing to survive it, hope when the dust settles and the fires go out, there's something left that was worth waitin' around for.
Where this'll go anybody's guess. The ones think they're in control ain't, but shaking itself out could be painful. Elon? Well, he got a target on'em. And I mean the kind of target that some serious, desperate and dangerous people are aiming at. The regime is publicly threatening him (not with the 'extreme prejudice' obviously, in public, but it's contingency) and probably can look for the injustice department to start some 'investigations', maybe the senate still bein' in the hands of Satan, they do some harassment.
But Musk got a few hundred times the money Trump has. And he's not tied to the US, in terms of having to be here. He's not running for office, if they wanna try to arrest him, well good luck. How many places in the world he can live as he pleases, no extradition, probably more secure if they do get shooters after him. Try to shut down his operations, again good luck. They're nowhere near smart enough to do anything with this guy.
Some time back people were comparing him to John Galt. More as a symbolic thing. His actions appeal to Randians. I found her to have some good ideas but not a great writer. Of course I was about ten or twelve when I read Atlas. Thirty or forty years later I still think so. Musk is a disrupter for sure, but he seems mostly concerned with keeping things from getting worse, as much as he can. I guess he sees the situation pretty much as it is and knows that the effect he can have is limited. So he does what he can where he can. Only real disagreement I have is the electric cars. He must know, if he bothered to do the math, they aren't possible (not just impractical, impossible) on the scale of automobile usage, which is still growing. They are theoretically possible in the most extreme one-worlder vision, with no more than a few million total population and 95% of that working for their benefit. Fuel cell technology makes electric cars eminently practical (transition would be slow but is at least possible) but in their current form they're not possible. Be interesting to see if he does at some point either ditch Tesla altogether or make the switch to fuel cells.

Our action hero today is a guy named Ehud. He is likely the inspiration for a lot of men in modern Israel being named Ehud, including a couple of prime ministers
Ehud is generally regarded as the second of twelve judges. Kinda like the county judge where most of us live ain't a judge like sits in a courtroom overseeing trials, these Israelite judges weren't either. They were more like militia leaders, who got together a few good men and took care of whatever was the latest disaster their people had incurred through their wickedness. Ehud's disaster was having the Moabites overrun them and make them pay tribute. The Moabites are believed to be descended from the wicked Lot and his two daughters. Look, they did what they did, and it was wicked. One of his daughters anyway produced the Moabites. The other one gave us the Ammonites. When the Israelites came to occupy Canaan they had trouble with both tribes. And when they went astray (again) he let the Moabites have their way with them. So their repentance and prayers for deliverance were answered in the form of on Ehud. A famous southpaw way back, as we shall see.
Ehud bein' a lefty is a subject of some speculation. He was a Benjamite, and that tribe was said to have a lot of left-handed types. Some said they practiced fighting left-handed, even if they weren't naturally, to trick their enemies. Makes some sense considering what Ehud did. Lot of people think it was because it made it easier for him to conceal a weapon in an unexpected location - the right thigh rather than the left were most would. Guess the cross-draw was popular. Some pistoleros say when you're sitting, a crossdraw is the fastest. So you got that. Whatever it was, he had it ready for the obese king he was going to present the tribute. Don't know what the king thought the secret message was, but perhaps relations were decent enough that he'd expect a messenger from the subject people to be likely to do some secret deal that would be to his benefit. Either way. Guess you could say the king was morbidly obese.
So he got away, the servants bein' afraid to see what was takin' so long in the privy.
Ehud' done gone. Back on home turf, he signaled the army and they came down outta the hills and took care of that tribute thing for a while. But it was always just a while. People. Whaddya do?

Clayton's comment pretty much describes the way some people think these days. More than before. Whether that's as it should be or not, it's what will be. It's manifested in various ways, but that's for another time.
Listened a bit (with eyes closed for obvious reasons) as the new diversity hire Supreme Court Justice babbled some inane, well, babble. I guess that would be a diversity appointment, Democrat regimes load the courts up with those. And most brainless tools do check a box or two on the list of "qualifications". This latest tool of the left, installed by Joetato to further the destruction of the Republic, was questioning the lawyers representing yet another victim of attacks on clear constitutional liberty by the state of Colorado. Like the cake baker in Oregon, this lady is being attacked through lawfare, again using the one percent of the population that seems to be responsible for an inordinate amount of the troublemaking. OK, they've consolidated the entire pervert community to make maybe two to three percent. They are obviously tools, albeit willing ones, indeed they are eager to attack decent people.
Thus a lady who designs websites is approached by the provocateur with a request to design a site for a homosexual wedding. She politely declined. As to whether if was possible to do in such a way as to avoid any perceived justification for accusations ("I'm six months behind and can't take any new work now" or something similar) could or should have been tried, I suspect that another way would have been found. The fact is she was targeted, because of her personal convictions, and all such people are marked for destruction by the enemy.
At any rate the case has, like that of the baker in Oregon, has now arrived at the Supreme Court. A supreme court which now includes (due to a successful manipulation of a presidential election) no less than three members who are not only virulent anti-constitutionalists and dedicated to the destruction of all that is good and decent, but also, let me be as polite as I may, far from being of above average intelligence. Which is obviously the objective in installing them. They are tools, and if tools were intelligent they wouldn't be tools.
But the most recent contamination to the court is the most vile of all. And the least intelligent. Sodameyer and Kagan are at least of modest intelligence. Maybe. The new one is beyond stupid. Ignorant as well, as in not knowing. Stupid as in, well, stupid.
Thus we have an exchange (her part no doubt prepared by handlers, and it says something about their intelligence or lack thereof) in which she blathers for a few minutes about an ancient (but well-known) film from 1946 . Aside from the fact that there is absolutely no constitutonal basis whatsoever for the litigation, and that it ever got to the state supreme court is obscene (now why did that word intrude into my thoughts?) her performance (and others that I have heard) are somewhere around the level of an eighth-grader. Like the diversity hire presidential press secretary, they are painful to hear.
What happens if the attackers prevail? In most cases the businesses simply stop offering any products or services that can be used as avenues of attack, which is probably most of them. In the end they are out of business, which is the objective. And the attackers get to crow about their victory. The businesspeople either pursue some other endeavor or move to another state (a lot of that going on already, but federalizing obscene laws ultimately imposes them on the entire country) but if evil wins, the once-greatest-nation-on-earth crumbles a bit more.
Most seem to believe that the court will rule correctly, as the quisling John Roberts is unlikely to go for it, and the other four conservatives are solid. So at worst it would probably be a 5-4 ruling. Let's hope Clarence Thomas survives until a new constitutionalist president is in office.

Sat down to write and girlfriend called, wants to go out for pizza. Likes the Red Barons I do here, but says I hang around the house too much. Easy for her to say, half my age. But... I'll see what she thinks I oughtta talk about.
OK, back to work. Finish up the above. The quota thing's been a problem from the beginning. And how could it not be? An intelligent person would expect it, dumb ones should catch on. Those using it to destroy a social order they hate (because they themselves are mediocrities at best) will continue and amplify it. This is from the 1970s when it was just getting going good. In the late 70s I was in the Air Force, and while the armed services were all in on it already (although racial/ethnic numbers were already at target levels, maybe above) but recruiting and promoting women was the main objective. So that was the main problem with quality being affected by it. If you were black or Hispanic, you could generally be held accountable for your performance because the numbers were there, so the few bad ones (the Air Force was more selective in quality, as was the Navy, as technical ability is almost universally required. Or at least it's needed to prevent submarines from colliding with underwater mountains, or ships banging into each other on the surface. And the rot is pretty deep already, because diversity donchaknow. The wimmin thing was easy enough to predict, both in terms of its effect on the service and on the women who were lured in in much greater numbers than which they would have normally enlisted. But that's another story for another time. So that is what is, and ain't ever gonna be anything other than what is. Wishes or denials don't change it.
Most of us are old geezers like me, and we mostly figure that's not a bad thing, all things considered.
OK, news stuff. Elon keeps the left seething, the government threatening, and may or may not have a serious impact. It'll take a while to see. Joetato threatening us with F-15s and nukes, ain't enough to take out thousands of cells scattered out over three million miles. Think Vietnam or Afghanistan/Iraq on a humongous scale, with even less army than you had then. The biggest danger is, and the most likely thing that breaks it if some kind of sociopolitical solution can be effected. And it's iffy and looks iffier each day. The problem with stupid people is they're stupid. They don't get it. I watch videos sometimes of guys shootin' things. Shootin' wild hogs from helicopters. Sittin' in a moving chopper shooting at running hogs. The diverse army does good to hit stationary silhouettes from a stationary position. And a diverse army of a million only nominally human organisms, 20% of which are actually combat capable, against 30-40 million (probably more) of guys who not only shoot running hogs at night and get three or four kills before they get out of range - these people just don't get it. And when those people, who already are not inclined to suffer fools gladly, are now thoroughly pissed because you just won't leave'm alone, whatever happens next will not be what they were figurin' was gonna happen.
What else? Well, the perv basketball player that took illegal drugs to Russia and got throwed in a probably not very nice Russian prison. Ain't never been in one, don't wanna be. How do people get that stupid? Born that way obviously, and there's no fixin' it. Dunno if people so impressed by basketball players think about that fact that the game was invented and originally played by men about five-six or so. I's in high school, a guy near six feet was pretty good if he was average agility-wise.
Anyways, the regime traded a major arms trafficker that supplied wars all over the world, killed a few thousands I'd guess. Had'em in prison, let him go and we got the ugly druggie lesbian basketball player back. Russians be glad to get him back, get'em back to work supplying terrorists around the world, probably help out some in Ukraine.
Things gettin' bad in Europe. Heatin' and eatin' on a lot of minds. As in they got problems. So taking a cue from our own rulers they staged a false flag, well no attack. Just rounded up a bunch of (right wing terrorists obviously) folks planning a coup or something.
'nother formerly famous celebutard (boy band I bleev) accused of 'horrific rape' way back when. Andy Warhol said in the future everybody be famous for 15 minutes. And anyone who was ever rich and famous will be accused of one or more 'horrific rapes' couple dozen years ago.
Guess it's gettin' about time for the midnight smoke and a brandy. 'night kiddos.

MacArthur's Freehold is a good read for someone of my thinking. Not just because a buddy wrote it. He sneaks some things in, indside jokes for some of us, an average reader might miss, makes it more fun for them as does. I believe the draft copy on this site is near the finished product on Kindle, and it won't cost you 99 cents. He don't care much about money, and .99 is the lowest price for a Kindle. Apparently their royalties are pretty good, if you're interested in money.
December be half over 'fore I know it. What happened last couple of days?
Few little things. They arrested another Lockerbie bombing suspect. Dunno how many they arrested past what is it, 1988-2023, 'bout 35 years. Pretty sure one or two of them got tried and went to prison. And I believe they let one go, while back. Distractions, bunch of junior high level people running the country. If that. And these are all mentally ill, and evil to boot. But whatever they think'll fly. Sometimes it reminds me of the Eric Rudolph thing, blamed him for a few things, including the one they tried to hang on Richard Jewell, and when that didn't pan out they added it to the list of things Rudolph supposedly did. He wasn't around to deny it just then, bein' on the lam. In the woods, eating bugs and berries. Whatever. Years later he conveniently gets nailed by a cop investigating a dumpster diver, there he is. Clean and healthy, dressed like he was goin' out for a beer with the buds. Okey-dokey.
Elon keeps given'em fits. Not sure how much good it'll do. Took the twitter toy away from the commies, regular people can use it now without the shenanigans. Most of the damage is done I expect. You get a Ronald Reagan type in there in a couple years, and a Congress with some balls, and most of the RINOs gone, maybe something. But without a Nuremberg type of justice it's at best a delay, even Reagan need all eight to get a little done, and Bush 41 started throwin' it away as fast as he o could. DeSantis looking pretty Reaganish, tefon and all. But you't need two eight-termers to get much done, and without a major societal shift it would be difficult even then.
Usual stuff out in the real world. Bolansaro tole the army to essentially do what the people want them to do. Which ain't good for the new regime. He said it so he wasn't incitin' anything, but that didn't help Trump, the 'be peaceful and law-abiding' stuff. But Brazil ain't us. Them people in Latin America don't suffer fools as gladly as do the sheeple here. That's probably gonna see some action. Been over a month.
Noise from Serbia and that region. This wasn't settled back in 99 when Slick Willie and NATO bombed then into submission when they tried to keep the Muslim takeover of Kosovo. The cabal just thought it was. Some said then that some time would go by, and the Serbs would go back and finish the job and this time get it done. I was one of them some. Now NATO worse off than ever, dumping resources into Ukraine, maybe in there on the ground if it don't get stopped. Actually, there's considerable evidence that there are already US and some NATO operators in there. Not bueno at all. They get occupied enough elsewhere, Serbia goes for it. And gets it. If they do it'll be ugly in a major way. But the cabal gettin' to where there's more holes in the dike than they got fingers, and too widely separated to plug even the ones they got fingers for. 'bout all I got time for now. Got a book or two of my own to finish up. Late as it is and the workload, guess it's buenos noches.

Word is ITBOTB is finished. Alex is giving access to a handful of his and my disreputable friends. They're mostly the same, since neither of us would have any other kind. Who was that guy, said he wouldn't want to be in a club that'd have him. I admittedly don't know much about Groucho. Some of the before-my-time stuff I never got around to. Some stuff people plum crazy 'bout, I's younger, never quite could get to it. Mostly the humor. Ole movies I like. Just as well, since the new ones ain't worth one of them bad words I don't say 'cause I feel like spittin' after I say'em and that's one of'em. All right? Okey-dokey. There's a link on this site, and I'll put a copy there along with a Kindle link.
Ole movies. Yeah, finally got some time to just fool around and waste time now, watch some of'em. Watched Phantom of the Paradise couple days ago, hadn't seen it in years. Watched a dozen times way back, satellite movie channel running nonstop. Probably watched Roadhouse fifty or so. OK, lot the time the TV on and I'm doin' something else, gets to a favorite part and I stop and watch. Might set some time aside to watch some of the Duke's stuff. Westerns mostly of course, especially the Howard Hawks set ( Rio Lobo, Rio Bravo and El Dorado but several of the non-westerns were enjoyable. Well, actually only Brannigan and McQ became favorites.
But back to Phantom. It was made around the same time as The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The year before actually, if as of just now Wickedpedia isn't lying about old movies too. Don't think it won't happen, if it hasn't already. And they still beggin' for money ever time I look at'em. If they hadn't alienated over half their potential users that wouldn't be a problem. Hell, I'd probably donate and I ain't in a habit of making donations 'cept a couple of reputable and worthwhile charities. I probably need to start checkin' their article on Henry VIII occasionally, see if something about him got under commie skin these days and they mess with'em.
Anyhow, Phantom (an early DePalma effort, believe it or don't) is charming after all these years. Music by Paul Williams, also a costar, and humorous but not a comedy. Rocky Horror was pretty much about comedy, and I guess it wasn't quite my type. Mel Brooks and the 80s stuff like Police Academy was more to my liking. The lovely Jessica Harper, who had a rather sparse career in film. Couple dozen movies and some TV. Think the only other one I saw was Suspira. It seems to have been remade a few years ago with her in some role. Dunno, haven't seen it. Seens she married some executive in the film business.

Not an exact comparison, but figured I'd make some pics. Very cerebral stuff, Blue Oyster Cult. Sense of humor too, great shows back in the day. Caught the laser sets a couple of times while they were doing it. People today see it ain't impressed. Lasers in your pocket. This was the 70s, laser was big old cantankerous things. And the extended jam on VOTPW pretty spectacular, Buck layin' it down with some rhythm from Eric, equal to Free Bird or Green Grass and High Tides. Eric collaborated with Michael Moorcock on that one. Michael fooled around a bit with Cult and Hawkwind back in the day. Checked Wickedpeda just and he's still kickin. Extant at least. dunno how energetic he is. Enjoyed his work as a youngster and was recently motivated by something or other to read the Elric novels again. He's probably my favorite. Jerry Cornelius is another.
As for Dr. Malone, he's obviously commenting on the Operation Covid, which some of the cabal aren't giving up on. Still, in the big picture, it's probably destined for failure as the plans for the unipolar world seem to be going in the opposite direction of where they intended. As for us (the US) I don't believe anyone can say, exactly. I see us becoming a minor player, whether we reform and join the sane community or stick with the crumbling remains of the Empire that Never Ended.
Month about half over. Forgot what I was gonna talk about. Maybe think of it tomorrow.
Most of the images I use are on this or other websites I fool around with. Feel free to steal'em. Here's the text so you don't have to run them through an OCR filter. If you need one, here's one I like:
Finally, they could take your live with false vaccines -- and unlike the Nazis in 1944, get the private sector to dispose of the corpses.
