Back to 'Afghanistan the Smaller'

 War-War Joe.

President Biden signed off this month on a plan returning US troops to Somalia — and reversing former President Donald Trump’s pullout of roughly 700 troops from the East African country.

Biden authorized a “persistent” US military presence in the East African country, with an estimated cap of 500 Americans...

Another mistake by Bush the Dumber gets perpetuated.

FJB.

The Great M. Stanton Evans

We read his columns in Human Events for years.  Every one was a grand slam.

Here, Evans gives "The Great Society" exactly what it deserves.  

...President Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society programs were another target of Evans, noting early on that they were turning into a sinecure for “caring” professionals of the welfare state. JFK’s brother-in-law Sargent Shriver, head of Johnson’s Office of Economic Opportunity, complained about an Evans column but proved his point: “I am confident that the new importance the War on Poverty is giving to the helping professions will have a beneficial effect both locally and nationally on the often inadequate salaries in those fields.” Evans understood the war between the Right and Left is really “a war between the permanent government and the elected government.”...

That was in 1963.  

Neither Dick Nixon, Ron Reagan, GHW Bush, Bush the Dumber, nor Donald Trump has done One.  Damn.  Thing.  about the welfare-state promoting "caring" professionals.

Well, those "professionals" DO care.  About their own income, benefits, and retirements.  And to Hell with yours, pal.

Poop Processor Likes Democrats

Not really surprising that someone who processes poop sends large bucks to Democrats, is it?

...Also on the invite list was Kevin Conroy, CEO of Madison-based Exact Sciences and generous contributor to Democratic campaigns, including $25,000 to Evers’ campaign coffers. Conroy also is the brother-in-law of Joel Brennan, the governor’s former Department of Administration secretary....

Would you call that 'laundered poop'?  By its more scatological moniker, it's "s*it" which--come to think of it--is a commodity spewed by Democrats in large quantities.

Yup.  Makes sense.

Priorities? WRONG!!

 Channel 6 headline:

Milwaukee crime, governor's race: Dems want more gun laws, GOP more officers

They're both wrong.

What Milwaukee (but not ONLY Milwaukee) needs is a real prosecutor and several hanging judges.

More cops would be nice, yes.  

As to "gun laws"?--- which ones have the goblins NOT broken?

RoJo Spends on Ukraine (??!!)

Not too surprising; Ron Johnson decided to spend $40 BILLION that the US doesn't have to support Ukraine's bureaucrats--and even worse, the US State Department's spend-spend-spend.

Has Europe spent anything on this war?

Yes.  About one-third of the US spend.  

Cool.

Here's a partial list (military spend can be found at the link):

— $8.77 billion in economic assistance for Ukraine;
— $4.35 billion in humanitarian aid for Ukraine;
— $4 billion for foreign military financing program (run by the State Department);
— $900 million for the Administration for Children and Families for refugee and entrant assistance;
— $500 million for the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development;
— $400 million for the international narcotics control and law enforcement to combat human trafficking and collect evidence of war crimes;
— $350 million for the State Department’s Migration and Refugee Assistance;
— $190 million for the State Department for “Diplomatic Programs;
— $150 million for the Global Agriculture and Food Security Program;
— $110 million for the State Department for embassy security, construction, and maintenance;
— $100 million for the State Department for nonproliferation, anti-terrorism, de-mining and related programs;
— $67 million for the Justice Department;
— $54 million for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to carry out public health and disease detection related to Ukraine;
— $17 million for the United States Agency for International Development (USAID);
— $10 million for the State Department’s “Capital Investment Fund”;
— $4 million for the State Department’s Office of Inspector General;
— $2 million for “salaries and expenses” to provide regulatory and technical support; and
— $1 million for USAID’s Office of Inspector General.

How's your baby formula supply?  Any of your friends or relatives die from drug OD due to the invasion from the South?

Don'cha love how the US Government spends your grandchildren's money?

Red China and Wisconsin Election Fraud

In the way-back of your mind, you knew the Chinese Communists had to be involved in the Wisconsin election fraud.

And they were.

The recently released documentary “2000 Mules” by Dinesh D’Souza shows that there were about 2,000 individuals who received ballots from various nonprofit organizations and delivered them in the middle of the night to many mail-in dropboxes ahead of the 2020 election.

While those organizations’ names were not mentioned in the documentary, Trevor Loudon, who has researched radical left, Marxist, and terrorist movements for more than 30 years, said that there is a network of voter registration organizations set up by the Chinese Progressive Association (CPA) in San Francisco, a “front” organization for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

This network is called “Seed the Vote” and it has ties with a number of organizations set up in key swing states such as Black Leaders Organizing for Communities in Wisconsin, Detroit Action in Michigan, Living United For Change in Arizona, New Georgia Project in Georgia, and Pennsylvania Stands Up in Pennsylvania, Loudon said....

Aside from Red Chinese support for this bunch, there's also the Tides Foundation, a dark-money outfit which supports Left and Far-Left ops.

Currently, the Wisconsin operation is supporting Underly (State Schools Superintendent,) Katie Kegel for Milwaukee County judge, Angela Cunningham for Kenosha County judge, and Kelley and Gokalgandhi for Milwaukee School board. 

When the Communists and Tides (BIRM) support someone for office, actual Americans should vote for anyone else.

The Ritter Switch-View on Ukraine

Only a couple of weeks ago, Scott Ritter (controversial, I know) was of the opinion that Russia was going to prevail in its quest to 'liberate' the two eastern provinces of Ukraine.  Ritter granted that it would take time, as the Russian strategy appeared to be an inch-by-inch clearing of Ukie troops east of the Dnieper; with serious artillery barrages clearing the way of the troops.

Now Ritter has re-thought.  It seems that he now expects a re-run of 'trench warfare' which may not be as deadly as the WWI version, but which will get the same results:  a stalemate.  It's Ritter's opinion that Putin will have to mobilize a far larger army in order to 'push' the Ukies out of the territory Russia wants.

This was discovered by Wauck, who mentions that Lloyd Austin's request for a cease-fire came AFTER the Ritter interview was taped.  But Ritter's intimation of 'stalemate' happens to comport with what the NSA thinks, as we mentioned earlier.

Red China comes up in the video discussion as a friend of Russia, but where Red China is the "big" brother--thus Russia is the "little" brother; an interesting take.  Only 50 years ago that would have been a laughable position to hold.

Things Have Changed, Ain'a?

 

On Certain Public Officials and Horsewhipping

A wonderful little screed from Glenn Reynolds about Certain Public Officials.  Nine years old and even more pertinent!!  His suggested remedies are also spot-on.

“Here’s the problem with public officials — because that’s really [Louis Michael Seidman’s] audience — deciding to ignore the Constitution: If you’re the president, if you’re a member of Congress, if you are a TSA agent, the only reason why somebody should listen to what you say, instead of horsewhipping you out of town for your impertinence, is because you exercise power via the Constitution. If the Constitution doesn’t count, you don’t have any legitimate power. You’re a thief, a brigand, an officious busybody, somebody who should be tarred and feathered and run out of town on a rail for trying to exercise power you don’t possess. So if we’re going to start ignoring the Constitution, I’m fine with that. The first part I’m going to start ignoring is the part that says, I have to do whatever they say.”...

The Wisconsin Election Commission Democrat Vote-Fraud Enabling Commission leaps to mind, doesn't it?

US SecDef Requests Cease-Fire in Ukraine (!?)

This is a telling report, if true.

Ukraine Pleads for Release of #Azovstal Fighters, #Scholz and #Austin Ask for Ceasefire, #Putin Refuses

Not only Austin, but the German Chancellor.   The entire post from Wauck (see link below) includes a number of citations about the general situation in the war.  They are NOT the usual D.C. propaganda--but even if they are Russian propaganda, it's better for you to know all, rather than half.  HintUkraine is not winning this war.

After all, it's YOU who will be a target if Crazy Uncle Joe decides that war with Russia is the right call.

HT: Wauck  

Mom's Law of Supply Chain

Several decades ago, my mom told me that there were very few imported cars in the US because of serious concerns over getting parts if a breakdown happened.  ("Getting parts" is the equivalent of "supply chain" for those of you who don't understand reality.)  That was the result of WWII, of course.

That decades-old wisdom illustrated Law One of Supply ChainsNEVER endanger your supply of critical parts or whole goods.  Pat Buchanan raised the issue back in '92.  Trump brought it up again.  It's not just about your microwave, either:  it's about weapons, supplies, and materials for war.

Denninger reminds us that supply chain laws have not changed a bit since WWII, no matter the propaganda from such as Club for Growth or the US Chamber of Commerce.

If the US gets into a shooting war with any country which counts Red China as an ally....or a country which (regardless of allies) has the capacity to sink cargo ships.......

...You immediately will have no semi-conductor anything, zero lithium batteries for anything at all from electric cars to cellphones, 75% or better of the pharmaceuticals in common use will disappear instantly, finding tires will be nearly impossible, automotive and machine parts, specifically wear parts such as bearings will all become unobtanium and more. Even something as simple as a circuit breaker for your house will not be able to be sourced. ALL of the large transformers used to distribute electrical power in the United States, never mind nearly all of the switchgear, are made overseas in whole or part and thus if they fail, whether due to natural or man-made cause they cannot be replaced in such an event either. Within a few months spares for critical parts that are considered wear items and thus must be replaced on a schedule will run out in our energy generation and distribution system and failures will begin to occur with impact from local areas to entire regions.

Your local gas station and supermarket cash register (never mind most modern refrigerators, HVAC systems and similar) all have chips in them that are only made overseas; there is no replacement available made in the United States. Your much-vaunted heat pump that is so "green" has a defrost control board in it without which it will not function -- if you bypass it (which you can in some cases) once the temperatures get below about 40 degrees outside the unit will fail or be destroyed without it, and there won't be a replacement available at any cost. Even the contactor (relay) in that outdoor unit has no US supply and without it the unit doesn't work. Your gas furnace has an ignitor and control board without which you have no heat, they do fail and, again, there is no US supply. We did this to ourselves with our decades-long stupidity offshoring everything and by doing so made it possible for any nation that can sink even a single container ship to break the United States economy and perhaps even a few million people's survival within minutes....

Denninger didn't mention car and truck chips, but he could have.  On the other hand, who's going to drive anyplace when there's nothing to purchase anywhere?

YOUR Assignment:  in 1000 words or less, tell us whether Red China's sudden lockdown of Shanghai and other industrial-production cities is (or is not) war against the US.  Be sure to document your response.

"Hundreds", Not "Thousands" of Pro-Aborts in Madistan

Weather was perfect for demonstrations, and the Capitol Cops in Madison were muttering about "thousands" of pro-abort demonstrators showing up yesterday (5/14.)

Didn't happen.

There were hundreds.

You know the crowd was small because of the pictures.  Also:  there was ZERO coverage by the Milwaukee TeeeeVeeee stations; if there had been a really significant crowd in Madistan, Milwaukee nooz outlets would have run the story.

(The Channel 3000 pic showed a lot of women who don't have to worry about men's hands being 'on their bodies.')

While the Democrat Party wants the Roe Reverse to be an issue in the Fall elections, it will NOT motivate a lot of people.  Just look at the pictures.

Abbott: 'The White House Lied About Us'

 If you think that the Biden Regime is fighting against U.S. citizens, you're right.  Here's an update on the baby-formula situation.

First off, remember that the Regime knew about the problem in February.  This didn't sneak up on "mind-reader Joe" just last week.

Then recall that a White House 'adviser' flat-out lied about contamination at the Abbott plant in Sturgis, MI--which was peremptorily shut down by FDA and remains shut down to this day.  They lied again in a presser last week.

Abbott isn't taking this lying down, to their credit.

...A comprehensive investigation by Abbott, FDA and CDC found no evidence that our formulas caused infant illnesses....

There were two different contaminants found in a NON-production area of the plant.  After genetic sequencing of the microbes at the plant AND in the homes of the affected children....

 ...Genetic sequencing on the two available samples from ill infants did not match strains of Cronobacter in our plant. Samples from ill infants did not match each other, meaning there was no connection between the two cases. [6/11]

In all four cases, the state, FDA, and/or CDC tested samples of the Abbott formula that was used by the child. In all four cases, all unopened containers tested negative. [7/11]

Open containers from the homes of the infants were also tested in three of the four cases; two of the three tested negative. The one positive was from an open container from the home of the infant, and it tested positive for two different strains of Cronobacter sakazakii… [8/11]

…one of which matched the strain that caused the infant’s infection, and the other matched a strain found on a bottle of distilled water in the home used to mix the formula. Again, neither strain matched strains found in our plant. [9/11]...

The putrid stench of "ambulance-chasing lawyer" is wafting through the air, isn't it?

Finally, even though the investigation totally cleared Abbott, the plant remains closed at the orders of Biden's FDA.

And all BidenšŸ¤” suggests is "Call your doctor."

Stolen elections have consequences.

Fr. Rutler on Moral Education

Another brief citation from Fr. Rutler's book The Seven Wonders of the World (Ignatius, 1993), this about moral education......or lack thereof.

When moral acts are only subjective functions and moral truths are only objective perceptions, moral laws at best will be attempts to coordinate multiple opinions.  [Ed.:  see the upcoming State-level battles over abortion.]  When that happens, opinion polls and legislatures and State courts replace the Church as moral teacher.  Our generation has seen the collapse of the criminal misinformation of Marxism, but, in the practical atheism of any materialist culture, Etienne Gilson's caution is profound:  "If we do not want to awaken some morning on the wrong side of the Iron Curtain, then we ought all to be interested in not letting the liberal State believe that it can indefinitely persist in educating children in view of nothing."  The Berlin Wall has fallen, but the fictitious Wall of Separation between Church and State still is conjured as an excuse for education in moral slavery."

Moral slavery follows from practical atheism, sweetened by the taste of false prosperity--the spoonful of sugar to make the poison go down.

O tempora, O mores!

$58BN for a "Stalemate" in Ukraine?

Yes, it's $58 BILLION.  We already coughed up $18BN or so and except for Rand Paul's standing in the breach (temporarily) we'll ship another $40 BILLION soon.  A chunk of that will pay the salaries, benefits, and pensions of Ukraine's bureaucrats.

(How's your grocery bill looking?  That last fill-up at BP cost you....what....about $60.00?  Checked the price of automobiles lately?)

So what do we get for that?

...There was a critical point made last week by Defense Intel Agency (DIA) Director Lt. Gen. Scott Berrier, that not a single media outlet or politician discussed.  During his briefing to the Senate Armed Services Committee, Berrier was asked “can Ukraine win” the conflict against Russia? Lt. General Berrier replied:

 “That is a difficult predication to make. I think where the assessment is at, is a prolonged stalemate should no factor change on either side. In other words, the Russians continue to do what they’re doing, and we continue to do what we are doing for the Ukranians.” ...

$58 BILLION and counting buys you a stalemate!

WAR-WAR Hannity didn't mention that, did he?  Nor did any Democrat, nor Republican politician.

Nor did the MSM.

They want you to be like a mushroom.  Kept in the dark and covered with poop.

True Dat

 

Pelosi: "Some Pigs Are More Equal..."

Pelosi, who likes to fly home and back using Air Force Gulfstream-5's, thought she'd spread the perks around a bit--to Congressmen and their staffers.

...the House Chief Administrative Officer announc[ed] a new "House Drinks storefront" in the Rayburn House Office Building where lawmakers and staff can buy beverages, wine and liquor....

Oh, HELL no, that's not all!

...multiple members of Congress confirmed to Just the News that the Chief Administrative Officer has also decided to provide all lawmakers, staff and Capitol Police officers with free VIP memberships to Peloton gyms....

(Ashli BabbittSay her name, CapCop bitchezzzz.) 

Diesel fuel will be rationed soon.  Gasoline prices highest ever in US.  Baby formula not available.  Overall cost-of-living up 11% or so since last year.  Nuclear war rumbles in the background, Taiwan likely to be part of Red China this year, and the Federal Debt is UNPAYABLE.

Biden, Nancy and the Democrat Horde eat the substance out of America.

MKE Downtown Becomes the OK Corral

Wow.

Two people were shot outside of the Fiserv Forum after the Bucks game.

Then three more were shot on Water Street.

Then SEVENTEEN more were ALSO shot on Water Street.

No fatalities, mostly because 'gangsta style' aiming doesn't work well.

You could go to Chicago for some (comparatively) peaceful bar-hopping.

Biden Bureaucrats vs. Your Babies

Why are we not surprised that bureaucrats can't get out of their own way?

The Biden administration knew about the baby formula shortage as early as February, the director of the National Economic Council, Brian Deese, told CNN’s “New Day” on Friday morning.

Deese said the administration is working around the clock to tackle the issue from every angle possible, noting the administration is trying to give retailers “more flexibility on the types of formulas that they can sell.”...

What that actually means is 'allowing sale of European formula' in the US.  See, European stuff is the same as US stuff--but FDA doesn't approve the f*n labeling, so your baby can starve.  FDA says so.

 ...Kaitlan Collins then asked Deese what his response to Republican criticism that the administration didn’t act fast enough is.

“The administration has been on this from the get-go. A lot of this emanated from a plant in Michigan that was producing formula that didn’t meet safety standards,” Deese said....

Really?  Abbott insists that the formula was clean, but grants that there was 'some contamination' in OTHER areas of the building.  Deese's statement may result in litigation.

In sum:  it's been NINETY DAYS since FDA shut down the Abbott plant.  They've had NINETY DAYS to 'fix' their bureaucratic bullshit regarding European imports.

And they have failed.  

Then they're surprised when "America First", "Trump 2024" and "MAGA" signs pop up all over the land.

"ESG" in Sri Lanka Gets Results

"Environmentally Sustainable" laws put into place by Sri Lankan government got results!!

But not the results the rulers wanted.

[In] Sri Lanka...protesters angry at the soaring prices of everyday commodities including food, have burned down homes belonging to 38 politicians as the crisis-hit country plunged further into chaos, with the government ordering troops to "shoot on sight."

Police in the island nation said Tuesday that in addition to the destroyed homes, 75 others have been damaged as angry Sri Lankans continue to defy a nationwide curfew to protest against what they say is the government's mishandling of the country's worst economic crisis since 1948.

"Shoot on sight" orders don't mean much to people who are starving to death, ya'know.

The "use manure as fertilizer" gambit reduced the rice crop by about 40%.  That's bad in a country where rice is a staple, not an option.  But it gets worse!!  That "use manure" law also reduced the country's leading export:  tea.  So there were less revenues from export of tea; therefore the Sri Lankan bureaucrats could not  purchase rice on the open market.

The same Green Asshattery is going to be pushed in the US by the Bai-Den bunch.

How do you like your grass soup?

Credible Story from Ukraine?

This is a story from a Ukrainian source.

Ukrainian officials reported on Friday that Russian forces had forcibly deported more than 210,000 children since Russian President Vladimir Putin first launched his special military operation more than two months ago.

According to Ukrainian Human Rights Ombudswoman Lyudmyla Denisova, the children were among the 1.2 million Ukrainian nations [sic] who were deported against their will and warned that Moscow was working to make them Russian citizens, Reuters reported.  --quoted at Weasel Zippers

Smell test, anyone?

Musk Looks at the Teeth of the TwitterHorse

A few of you will recognize the genesis of the headline.

Anyhow.

...Musk learned on Friday morning that fake or spam accounts on Twitter make up less than five percent of users.

The more spambots on the site, the worse its market value is. The less, the higher because it means more advertising capability. No business wants to advertise on Twitter if nearly 30 percent of the eyes that will see it are fake. If Musk is going to spend $44 billion on something, he wants to make sure that every detail about the site is correct and that he knows what he’s getting into.

Do you check your bag of food at the drive-thru before you drive away? Musk is just checking his bag.

Indeed, Musk assured everyone that he’s still committed to the purchase no matter what and this pause is just temporary while the numbers are sorted out....

The reporting here is wrong.

Musk did not 'learn' that spambots were 5%.  He was told that by Twitter management, but he does not trust them--so he's asking for definitive proof.

Bannon has been yelling for Musk to back out of the deal, thus collapsing Twitter's share value--and then moving in again and buying it at a bargain price.  Wouldn't surprise me for a second if this is the vehicle Musk is using to batter down the price of Twitter.

It would be a crying shame if Dorsey (et.al.) saw their share-value drop by 50%, wouldn't it?

Paulie-Boy Ryan Cries About Trump

Paul Ryan, who was House Budget Chair, Joint Finance Chair, and SPEAKER, didn't do one damn thing about Federal spending.  Not One.  Damn.  Thing.

In fact, for the last 6 years or so of his Little Boy in Big-Boy Pants act in the Capitol, he didn't even bother with a budget--it was all continuing resolutions, thus not "fixable".

Now he blubbers and cries that Trump didn't want to take on entitlements.

...Paul Ryan served in Congress for 20 years. During that time, there was a four-year span (2003 – 2007) that Republicans held the House, the Senate, and the White House, which were all led by Paul Ryan’s type of Republicans: House Speaker Dennis Hastert, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, and President George W. Bush.

They were able to push through tax cuts, of course, but when it came to spending cuts, somehow all those GOPe budget hawks just couldn’t find any scissors to slash the funding for toxic recipients such as NPR or the National Endowment for the Arts.

Yet Ryan has the audacity to condemn Trump for not cutting Medicare?!

Paul Ryan also served as Speaker of the House for four years during the Obama presidency. Under the Constitution, he and his fellow House Republicans had the power of the purse and could choose not to fund Obama’s spending priorities. He chose not to use that power.

Again, Ryan has the audacity to condemn Trump for not cutting Medicare?!

And by the way, where is Ryan’s condemnation of Barack Obama? Just kidding. ...

This piece of crap, "Janesville Boy" also left Janesville as soon as he could, having quit Congress.  Yah, he's quite a crybaby.

Who's Demonstrating? Evers Keeps It Secret

There may--or may not--be several thousand demonstrators in Madistan this weekend over the Roe decision.

But you'll never know who they are.

...On Saturday, an even larger rally is expected to bring out 20,000 to 30,000 people, again at the State Street area of the Capitol, Litzkow said. Police are expected in larger than usual numbers between 2 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.

“Expect traffic delays in the downtown area,” the Capitol Police officer warned.

Another rally is scheduled for Sunday at and near the Capitol.

Litzkow referred Empower Wisconsin’s questions to the Department of Administration.

A Department of Administration spokeswoman said she would provide the names of the groups and individuals on the permits and other information, but then advised Empower Wisconsin to file an open records request (a process that can take months to complete with the Evers administration). She did not respond to a follow-up email.

A Madison Police Department spokeswoman did not respond to multiple messages....

Given the notably small crowds demonstrating in front of SCOTUS' members houses and at the Fed courthouse in Milwaukee last weekend, the Madistan events may turn out to be just a zit on the butt of an elephant.

What's far more interesting is the Evers secrecy.  We know that the babykiller crowd are all allies of Evers, which is the best reason for him to keep it a secret, and that's most likely why the silence.

Panic Over Michel's Election Board Promise

This is fun to watch.  Tim Michels wants to fire the entire Election Board and its senior staffers and start over again.

That put a Lefty Lawyer/Election Board Democrat Election Machine member into a panic.

...Democratic chairwoman of the Wisconsin Elections Commission Ann Jacobs said Michels' plan demonstrates he does not understand how elections are run in Wisconsin.

"This is craziness - it demonstrates a total lack of understanding how elections work. There would be no guidance for elections at all? And no staff? Just an empty office? Who will administer registrations? the Wisvote database?" Jacobs said in a tweet. ...

Frankly, Annie, given the outright lawbreaking pushed by you and your ultra-Lefty staffers out there, the State would be better off without you.  The State would be better off with 1,000 monkeys typing novels in that office, Annie.

Do you REALLY want to talk about the 'voter database', Annie??  Really?  The one with "voters" having birthdays at the beginning of the last century?  The one with 4900 voters having ZIP Code of "99999"?

We're not done, Annie.  Following the end of Evers and Kaul--this Fall--there will be criminal investigations and LOTS of prosecutions for the frauds in Milwaukee, Dane, Racine, Kenosha, and Brown Counties.  

It's no wonder that you've instructed the local press (including the TeeeeVeeeee outlets) to totally ignore 2000 Mules.  You don't want to make it too easy for juries to send your pals to prison.

GE: 'No CT Diagnosis for YOU!!'

One of the things that happens when you "offshore" production....

General Electric (GE) Healthcare said on Wednesday a shortage of medical dye caused by a Chinese coronavirus lockdown of its production plant in Shanghai, China, has affected not only hospitals in the U.S. and Germany but also in other regions of the world, Reuters reported....

... Some of the largest hospitals in the U.S. prepared this week to endure critical shortages of medical dye normally sourced from GE Healthcare’s Shanghai factory....

 ...GE Healthcare has been suffering from a shortage of its Shanghai-produced medical dye products since at least mid-April. The medical equipment company issued a letter to customers April 19 in which it revealed it was “rationing orders for its iohexol products after a COVID-19 [Chinese coronavirus] lockdown temporarily shut down its production facility for iodinated contrast media in Shanghai, China.”...

CT scans are used to detect cancer, among other things.

Another issue on which Donald Trump was absolutely correct:  bring manufacturing back to US shores. 

Not to worry, though!!  The Chamber of Commerce thinks China is the perfect place for critical-needs manufacturing.

The United States Chamber of Commerce is hyping job-killing free trade deals such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) as the “answer” to China’s economic dominance worldwide, lobbying President Joe Biden to cut U.S. tariffs across the board....

The concept of "FAIR Trade" never enters the alleged minds at the Chamber, but that's exactly what Trump was driving at when he instituted the tariffs.  See, FAIR Trade would keep jobs in the US, even with the horrific burdens in place due to EPA, OSHA, and taxes.   Also those silly Fair Labor Standards requirements, and healthcare, and pensions, and stuff like that.

How d'ya like that chip shortage?  Feeling OK about not getting your cancer diagnosis on time?

That's what the Chamber of Commerce wants for you, peasant.  STFU and take it.

"How Many Mouths They Feed....."

We think this .........woman......is not too self-reflective.

Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA) claimed that abortion and inflation “reinforce each other.”

According to Porter, abortion was important because with the high prices of groceries, housing and gas, “people need to be in charge of how many mouths they’re going to have to feed.”...

There are 2,700,000+ Federal employees in 732 agencies being paid a total of $215+++BILLION/year in salaries.

Looks like we haven't been "in charge" for quite some time, Katie.  How about you resign and relieve us of the burden YOU place on us?

Who's Paying Off Mark Levin?

This is not the first WAR WAR WAR whoop from Levin.   Kinda makes you wonder why, eh?  Yes, he's a fanatic on defending Israel, but this war (seemingly) has little to do with that state.  Or does it?

(He also doesn't understand the meaning of the title "Utopia" by Thomas More--so he went on an anti-Catholic rant a few years back.  Claims he's a 'scholar.'  OK, Mark.)

McConnell's Challenge to Himself

Here we have the old snake on the record:

“I think we’d all agree the most important thing going on in the world right now is the war in Ukraine,” said Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky...

He said that while hiding behind the Capitol Police and a Marine company down the street, of course.

If it is THAT damned important, Mitchie-Poo, then take an M-4 from the local Marines, get on a jet, and go fight the damned war.

Leave the rest of the country out of it.

Baby Formula for Illegals, Not for Americans

Wonder if Bishop Seitz of El Paso can explain this....

Seems that Biden is shipping pallets of baby food to "welcome centers" for illegals at the border in Texas.

How very generous of him!!  While American (citizen) babies can starve--or just get very sick--the invaders get fed.

Vos: Kill Children of Criminals

If you think that Robin Vos' (and Fitzgerald's) total lack of concern over election fraud is a problem, it gets worse.

Vos now proposes to kill the children of criminals.  Because that's the right thing to do, in his alleged mind.

Assembly Speaker Robin Vos wants exceptions for rape and incest if Wisconsin's ban on abortion goes into effect this summer...

Vos looks more and more like Nancy Pelosi every day.


The REAL Dirtballs Are in the FBI

 Cheryl Atkisson was a target of the Obama/Holder regime because Cheryl Atkisson was reporting the truth about them.

So how did Obama/Holder decide to take her out?

They tried to plant child porn on her husband's computer.

That's the lowest level of dirtball politics, which fits Obama/Holder to a "T", and comports with what we know about the FBI in general.

Think the next Congress will have the courage to de-fund the FBI?

WI Republicans Shove Money Elsewhere

Fitzgerald, Grothman, Steil, Gallagher--all see the need to spend $40 BILLION on Ukraine.  Note that Tom Tiffany still has common sense, voted NOPE!!

It's really money-laundering.  The US (a walking bankrupt) sends money to Ukraine.  Ukraine writes checks to Raytheon, General Dynamics, (etc.)  Defense contractors then send money to Congressional campaign accounts.

Probably to a Biden, as well.

The Eyes of ICE Are Upon You

Think ICE is supposed to be dealing with illegals?

Wrong!!

You are safe and cozy inside your ICE blanket, right?

Although it's supposed to be restricted by surveillance rules at local, state and federal levels, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has built up a mass surveillance system that includes details on almost all US residents, according to a report from a major think tank. Researchers from Georgetown Law's Center on Privacy and Technology said ICE "now operates as a domestic surveillance agency" and that it was able to bypass regulations in part by purchasing databases from private companies. 

"Since its founding in 2003, ICE has not only been building its own capacity to use surveillance to carry out deportations but has also played a key role in the federal government’s larger push to amass as much information as possible about all of our lives," the report's authors state. "By reaching into the digital records of state and local governments and buying databases with billions of data points from private companies, ICE has created a surveillance infrastructure that enables it to pull detailed dossiers on nearly anyone, seemingly at any time."...

It's because Uncle Joe, Barky, and Bush the Dumber, along with McConnell, McCarthy, and Paul Ryan all CARE about you.

See?

FDA Behind Formula Shortage?

There are always two sides to a story.

...The biggest baby formula supplier in the U.S. has denied its Michigan plant is responsible for the deaths of two children despite the FDA closing it down.

The plant was shutdown nearly three months ago after a bacterial infection caused the deaths and other serious illnesses.  

In mid-February Abbott Laboratories issued a nationwide baby formula recall and ceased operations at its plant in Sturgis, Michigan amid reports of babies contracting bacterial infections from its products.

An Abbott spokesperson told DailyMail.com Tuesday that 'thorough investigation' by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Abbott revealed 'infant formula produced at our Sturgis facility is not the likely source of infection in the reported cases and that there was not an outbreak caused by products from the facility'.

However, despite the findings of the investigation, the plant remains shuttered nearly three months later, fueling the nationwide baby formula shortage....

Earlier, we mentioned that the FDA waited two months to interview the whistleblower on this matter, and dawdled for another couple of months with its investigation.

"I'm Here From the Government to Help You."

Uh-huh.

"The Feeeelz" vs. The Truth

Imagine a newspaper finding a way to attack the Catholic church!!  Can you believe it??

When her teenager came out last year as transgender, one Milwaukee mother’s devout Catholic faith wasn’t a cause for conflict. It served as a roadmap for empathy....

The Feeelz.  Not The Truth.  (NB:  no mention of "father" in that anecdote, nor in the anecdote of a St. Robert's parishioner.  Hmmmmmm.)

 ...But a new policy from the Archdiocese of Milwaukee says all Catholic institutions in the area should only recognize a person's sex assigned at birth. It forbids anyone, whether they're transgender or not, from designating their pronouns in speech or writing because that “promotes an acceptance of the separability of biological sex and ‘gender’ and thus opposes the truth of our sexual unity.”...

Note the term "truth" in the Archdiocesan statement.  You won't find it in any of The Feeeelz' proponents.

...Students and staff must wear the uniforms and use the bathrooms that match their sex assigned at birth. Students must participate in the sports [sic] and, if attending an all-boys or all-girls school, attend a school that matches their sex assigned at birth. And no one can distribute or take gender transition medication on archdiocesan property. ...

The truth.

Now for more fun with "journalism:"

...church leaders in local parishes and schools are grappling with how to serve the growing number of transgender faithful, who may feel erased by the policy.

Research shows that transgender people, especially youth, are deeply vulnerable when they are not accepted by their families, peers and faith communities: Between a third and a half of transgender teens have attempted suicide at least once in their lives, a study in Pediatrics found....

"Growing number" means.....exactly.......what?  Any percentages?  Actual numbers?  Nope.

And that 'suicide' thing........umnnnhhhhh........does that confuse cause and effect?  Who knows??

 ...The mother of the Milwaukee teen who came out as transgender doubts the document will actually accomplish what church leaders hope it does.

“I don't think there's somebody who is transgender who's going to say, ‘Oh, well, never mind then, I guess I'll just stay the way I am so I can stay Catholic,’” she said. “No, I feel like it's much more likely to build up these further walls between a marginalized community and the Catholic Church.”...

The Feeelz, not The Logic.  (And again, no "father" mentioned here.   Hmmmmmm.)

It must have killed the reporter to know that a Hispanic (MINORITY!!!) priest wrote the Archdiocesan policy paper.

 ...The Journal Sentinel also asked [Fr.] Bustos about criticism from transgender advocates that the archdiocese policy would push away vulnerable people, whom Catholics are taught to embrace.

“I'm sorry they feel that way,” he said.

The policy is not saying anything the Catholic Church has not already said about gender identity, Bustos said.

“I could see that some people may feel uncomfortable about it, but that doesn't take away the fact that that's our faith, and that’s the truth that we live in in our Catholic Church,” he said. “But again, we are called to help individuals to feel welcome in our churches.”...

It's also 'the truth' everywhere else in the world, in case you were wondering.

More Feeeeelzz:

 

...Late last year, 10-year-old Luna came out as transgender to her mother Carrie Mihal. Since then, the family has switched to using she/her pronouns and has done what they can to be supportive. But life at St. Robert School, the private Catholic school in Shorewood she's attended since the pandemic, has become tumultuous.

School administrators haven't allowed Luna to wear the girls' uniform, or clothing like skirts on no-uniform day, and Mihal often gets calls during the school day explaining that Luna is having emotional breakdowns....

Again, no father quoted nor mentioned.  Odd, that.

Kudos to Fr. Bustos and Abp. Listecki.  Hold fast to that which is good and true!!

Want Drag With That Taco?

Did not know that this is a significant market segment.

Restaurant chain Taco Bell has announced its new "Drag Brunch" events that have been launched at several locations across America.

The events will feature drag queens "performing" while customers eat.

"While you eat."

Got it.

Which CoVid Story Should We Believe?

The dissonance, it hurts.

From the Milwaukee branch office of Pravda Today:

With COVID-19 vaccines and therapeutics now widely available, Wisconsin health professionals are cautiously optimistic that even if cases rise, they won't result in overwhelming hospitalizations and deaths....

Oh, good!

Also from the Milwaukee branch office of Pravda Today:

 ...Data still shows that the unvaccinated are more likely to suffer severe illness or death compared to the vaccinated, but it is clear that vaccinated people made up a significant portion of recent COVID deaths...

So COVID-19 will not result in deaths, unless you die.

Got it.

 

Hepatitis? Yup--The Vaxx

If it's 'never been seen before' you look for 'what changed.'  And 'what changed' is The Vaxx.

...News headlines and mainstream media titles are stating that unvaccinated children are getting hepatitis and liver damage from an unknown cause (or speculating adenoviruses as the cause) but fail to mention that actual case data shows that the WHO classifies children involved in this issue fall under the ages of 0 – 16 years of age, that the majority of cases are in the 1 month – 4 year old age group, and that 100% of the cases in that age range are being active breastfed (or have been breastfed within the last 12 months) by fully vaccinated mothers....

As to the older ones with hep?  Mostly double-vaxxed. 

Surprising that "journalists" haven't found that connection yet, ain'a?

Not Much "War" Over the Roe Thing

Yesterday afternoon a RadioMouth carried on for some time about the Left's reaction to the end of Roe.  To hear him tell it, it was George Floyd all over again.

Was it?  Not really.

This was not the civil war the corporate media and Democrats have promised for the last 50 years.

Oh, I know a few hundred yahoos descended on the homes of a few Supreme Court justices, an out-and-out felony encouraged by this lawless and deranged White House. But a few hundred yahoos will come out and protest anything. If Chipotle raised the price of guacamole, you could get that many yahoos out. This isn’t guacamole. This is the left’s sacrament of abortion. This is the third rail of third rails. This is civil war time. This is — Hey, where the hell is everyone?...

Yes, there was a fire-bombing in Madistan, and Federal crimes were committed against members of SCOTUS, although none were violent.

One is tempted to think that there are other, far more pressing problems, than the Roe thing.  Inflation and the price of fuel--plus the emerging "201-ification" of your 401k, for example.  And the possibility of nuclear war is out there, too.

Democrats are losing the battle, big-time.

The Rackets, Health Version

You knew it was back there somewhere....

...“When an NIH employee makes a discovery in their official capacity, the NIH owns the rights to any resulting patent. These patents are then licensed for commercial use to companies that could use them to bring products to market,” the fact sheet reads.

“Employees are listed as inventors on the patents and receive a share of the royalties obtained through any licensing, or ‘technology transfer,’ of their inventions. Essentially, taxpayer money funding NIH research benefits researchers employed by NIH because they are listed as patent inventors and therefore receive royalty payments from licensees.”...

So are we talking about 'real' money?

...An estimated $350 million in undisclosed royalties were paid to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and hundreds of its scientists, including the agency’s recently departed director, Dr. Francis Collins, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, according to a nonprofit government watchdog.

“We estimate that up to $350 million in royalties from third parties were paid to NIH scientists during the fiscal years between 2010 and 2020,” Open the Books CEO Adam Andrzejewski told reporters in a telephone news conference on May 9....

"UNDISCLOSED".  That's the part which makes one angry.

Corporate Greed? New Bucks Tix Prices!!

Apparently Alex Lasry's chatter about "corporate greed" is just that:  chatter.

He's hiked Bucks season ticket prices by quite a bit; up to a 60++% jump since last year.

...Lasry has been silent as fans have complained about the rising price of season tickets since January, when some said they were hit with increases of up to 60 percent. While some attributed the spike to the team's recent success—the Bucks won the NBA championship last year—many slammed the increase as a money grab and said normal Wisconsinites have been priced out of the market.

The ticket hike could undercut Lasry's class-warrior rhetoric as he works to deflect  criticism of Democratic economic policies and soaring inflation. Lasry, the son of Bucks co-owner and billionaire hedge funder Marc Lasry, has billed himself as a champion for "middle class workers" in TV ads....

Apparently, some greed is better than other greed.  Or something.

Release of Vote "Stash-Houses" Upcoming

Yes, there were illegal-vote "stash houses" in Wisconsin.

And the addresses will be released in the near future.

Of course, neither the Milwaukee nor Dane County DA's will investigate nor prosecute, and you can rest assured that local Pravda will not be too exercised about it either.

But some people will care.

Lying Robin Vos: "We Never Approved Drop-boxes"

You sure as Hell sat on your fat ass and watched, Robin.

Let me help your memory with this from the Journal-Sentinel:

 ...Republicans' views on ballot drop boxes have shifted since 2020. Assembly Speaker Robin Vos of Rochester that year had his attorney write a letter that stated ballot drop boxes were authorized by state law....

No lawsuit from YOU, Robin.  And no lawsuit from Fitzgerald--who is now one of the warmongers poking the nuclear-tipped Bear.


History Lessons

From WRSA today.  About that "Spain" thing--the Marxists were the reason that Francisco Franco was at war; he was fighting them.  Hemingway was on the side of the Marxists; he was one of the first "Woke" Americans.  Naturally, Franco has been slandered ever since.

Fun With BozoLefties

 Stolen from Kevin, no apologies:

Two Views on Ukraine

The rhetorical dissonance between these two essays is a wonder to behold.

Over here at RedState, Streiff goes more than just a little bellicose propaganda-meister:

...When Russian troops crossed the border with Ukraine on February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin set out his goals for his cakewalk to Kiev as 1) removal of the “nazis” and “drug addicts” ruling Ukraine, 2) disbanding the Ukrainian armed forces, 3) banning membership in NATO and requiring permanent “neutrality,” 4) banning “nazi” influences in Ukrainian politics, 5) recognizing the annexation of Crimea as legal, and 6) recognizing the independence of the fake republics created by Putin in 2014. In addition to those demands, Putin demanded that Russian be made an official “second” language of Ukraine because the number of Russian speakers in Ukraine has dropped about ten percentage points since Ukrainian independence, and it is difficult to meddle and create divisions unless you have a pressure point like language.

...Just like Austro-Hungary demands required Serbia to give Vienna control of Serbia’s foreign and domestic policy,  Putin’s terms for ending the war were nothing less than making Ukraine a province of Russia....

If you think that's bellicose, read on!

 ...For the war to end, Russia must withdraw. The one thing Zelensky has been consistent about demanding is that any cease-fire must be accompanied by a total withdrawal of all Russian forces from Ukraine.

Ukraine will not let any of the Russian-created Bantustans for Russian speakers to survive. The fake republics in Donetsk and Luhansk will be returned to governance from Kiev instead of Moscow. This will be a bitter pill for Putin to swallow, but it is getting safer to say that he no longer has the initiative in the war he started, and he doesn’t have the power to impose his will. Western aid, military and economic, will keep Ukraine in the fight longer than Russia can sustain its “special military operation.”

Crimea’s future as Russian territory is less than certain. The best that Russia can hope for out of this is to continue what Kiev views as an illegal occupation and create casus belli for a new war somewhere in the future, a war that Russia will not like.

Ukraine will exit this war as a virtual member of NATO and the EU. Its weaponry, equipment, and training will be standardized with NATO. Its commercial contacts will all be focused on Western Europe, not Russia....

Well, everyone is entitled to an opinion.

In contrast, American Greatness makes the case that--as per usual--the American objectives in Ukraine are vague, therefore useless, except to ONE particular group.

...The failure to think clearly about victory and what it requires matters for the current Russia-Ukraine conflict. The United States is currently a belligerent in all but name, providing substantial financial and military assistance to the Ukrainians. Any form of diplomatic compromise appears to be wholly anathema. Instead, Biden has recently requested $33 billion in additional aid to Ukraine. The president has even said—in remarks quickly walked back by government officials—that Russian President Vladimir Putin could not remain in power. So, is the goal regime change? Total Ukrainian victory? 

In spite of the aid already received, Ukraine appears to be slowly losing the war. The Russians, having started the war with an overly ambitious strategy have since scaled back their operations to something more realistic. Russia’s logistics problems seem to have been sorted out. Russians have already retaken the city of Mariupol. And there is now a genuine main effort in the Donbas. 

Russian forces are now fighting inch by inch and pounding the substantial mass of Ukrainian forces in the East with their extensive artillery. Two months into the war, Ukraine has not engaged in any substantial counterattack. 

So will the United States support Ukraine until it is ground into dust?...

...we have official silence regarding any diplomatic terms and increasingly aggressive talk from Biden, Secretary of State Tony Blinken, and members of Congress in both parties. As in Afghanistan, our leaders have embraced a vague and completely fanciful notion of victory that does not allow any evaluation of or reduction of efforts. 

Advocates promise that more weapons, more money, and more time will yield progress, but we were told the same thing about Afghanistan until its government and military completely and rapidly collapsed.... 

So let's be serious about "who wins" this war.

...As with the Iran-Iraq War of the 1980s, prolonging the fighting is sometimes not a bug, but a feature in foreign policy. While weakening Russia has been an obvious goal of the West since the early 2000s, our dimwitted Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin let the cat out of the bag by saying so explicitly on a recent visit to Ukraine. 

Surely no one can be unaware of the ways the Ukraine war benefits the military-industrial complex. For every Javelin, tank, airplane, or other weapon given away from Western arsenals, there is now a slot in which a defense contractor can sell a modernized and more expensive replacement

Long, indeterminate wars allow a continual stream of income to the highly consolidated defense industry, while also empowering host country officials responsible for disbursing the largesse. In Afghanistan, the huge amounts of American money sloshing around worsened Afghanistan’s already rampant corruption, undermining the government’s effectiveness and legitimacy in the eyes of ordinary Afghans. Since Ukraine’s reputation for financial and political rectitude is little better than Afghanistan’s, why does everyone assume that giving them tens of billions of dollars in equipment and aid will not enrich the corrupt leadership class at the expense of Ukraine’s people? ...

Good question, except asking D.C. that question is pointless, as few in the Biden Regime can define "corruption," for the same reason that a fish cannot define 'water.'  They swim in it and feed on it regularly.

That doesn't exonerate Republican poohbahs; Cheney notoriously joined a defense contractor as CEO immediately after giving up the Vice-President chair, and lots of them are living off the largesse of defense contractors, whether during their terms or afterwards.

So the average US citizen will now be living under the revived and very real threat of nuclear attack--just as will be the average citizens of Western Europe (and Russia.)

Isn't that nice?

Helpful History on Liturgy in MKE

The Pope apparently intends to make war, not peace.

Pope Francis on Saturday blasted Catholics who, hewing to old-school versions of liturgy like the Latin Mass, have made an ideological battleground of the issue, decrying what he described as devil-inspired divisiveness in the church....

... Speaking at the Vatican to instructors and students of the Pontifical Liturgical Institute, Francis said it’s not possible to worship God while using the liturgy as a “battleground” for nonessential questions that divide the church....

(As though a Jesuit has some sort of Special Liturgical Propriety charism.  /sarc.) 

Here's the 'helpful history' part of this post.

After the Great Liturgical Revolution's forcible implementation, one Milwaukee-area pastor refused to obey, and continued celebrating the 'Old Rite' (1962) at his parish church.  This attracted hundreds of people to a church which had been losing members for a decade.  It also attracted a large and well-trained choir and organist.

Eventually, the Archbishop--Rembert Weakland--evicted the group and the pastor from the church.  That group then moved to a dance hall in the far northwest suburbs.  After some expense and a good deal of labor and materials, that dance hall was re-created as a chapel every Sunday morning, and then 're-re-converted' to a dance hall by Sunday afternoon.

The Archbishop and the priest kept quiet.  There were NO public statements about the somewhat irregular situation from the Chancery, nor the priest.  Everything was peaceful.  

The situation became volatile only after the press got wind of it and one of the members of the group opened his mouth to them.  And volatile it was; Weakland could not remain un-involved, partly because there were a lot of other pastors who were on shaky ground with the forcible implementation of the 'New Liturgy' and made that known to the Chancery and partly because of a new threat:  the SSPX.

After a period of turmoil which allowed the SSPX to get a foothold in the area,  a resolution was offered by the same Archbishop--Weakland--who made a seminary chapel available to the group.  This was defense, really; Weakland did not want the SSPX initiative to grow much larger, nor did he want any 'bad press' about 'suppressing' Catholics.  

(Eventually, that group moved into a parish church, then into a much larger and more beautiful church  which is now the property of the Order which runs it.  It attracts a congregation of about 1,000 souls.)

The point here?  The Pope should follow the example of Weakland:  shut up, accept the "trads", and see how successful a peacemaker approach will be.  It worked in Milwaukee.

Think he'll do that?

Oremus.

Biden OWNS the Baby Formula Shortage

Color me Not Surprised.

...Joe Biden promised competence by a bigger, better government. A few days ago, one of his loyal allies exposed a gross incompetence by federal officials on Biden’s watch that defied that promise and inflamed a baby formula shortage now panicking parents nationwide.

Rep. Rose DeLauro, D-Conn., a reliable liberal ally, unveiled documents showing the Biden Food and Drug Administration was alerted by a whistleblower last fall about potential contamination issues at the Abbott Nutrition baby formula factory in Michigan and failed for months to act aggressively....

So what does "not aggressively" mean?

 ....The congresswoman, the chairwoman of the powerful House Appropriations Committee, laid out a four-month-long trail of federal bumbles and stumbles: the report came in Oct. 20, the whistleblower didn’t even get interviewed for two months, the plant didn’t get inspected until Jan. 31 and the recall didn’t get issued until Feb. 17.

“Why did the FDA not spring into action?” she implored during a congressional hearing. “Why did it take four months to pull this formula off store shelves? How many infants were fed contaminated formula during this time, by parents who trusted that the formula they were buying was safe? How many additional illnesses and deaths were there due to FDA’s slow response?”...

The Biden crowd actually specializes in dead babies, folks.  This is just another chapter of the same book.

Baldwin Would Demolish Conscience for Abortion Docs

Tammy Baldwin (D-Madistan) bleats that "her" bill will make abortion legal countrywide.

For someone who is the proverbial lump-on-a-log, that's a lot!

But that's not all!!

...Senator Susan Collins signaled she is a “no” on this draft of the WHPA because it “doesn’t protect the right of a Catholic hospitals to not perform abortions.” Blumenthal responded that Collins was wrong, and claimed that there is nothing in the bill “that detracts in any way from existing protections based on conscience or religion.”

Blumenthal is either lying or ignorant of the text. The bill expressly preempts the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and any law that “impedes access to abortion services.” The latter would include conscience provisions like the Weldon Amendment, which prohibits the Department of Health and Human Services from funding any federal, state, or local government that discriminates against hospitals and other institutions that refuse to provide abortions, and the Church Amendment, which provides that federal funds for health services not be contingent on the recipient’s willingness to perform abortions....

Since Tammy doesn't have a conscience, it's OK by her.

Good Question!

The Upcoming Biden Food Shortage

We mentioned the other day that a BidenšŸ¤” jackwagon called "Samantha Power" is very happy with the fertilizer shortage caused by Biden's War on Russia.  She's happy because the Government will 'transition' farmers to 'organic' methods.

So how does "organic" work out?

Sri Lankan President Gotabaya Rajapaksa promised in his 2019 election campaign to transition the country’s farmers to organic agriculture over a period of 10 years. Last April, Rajapaksa’s government made good on that promise, imposing a nationwide ban on the importation and use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides and ordering the country’s 2 million farmers to go organic.

The result was brutal and swift. Against claims that organic methods can produce comparable yields to conventional farming, domestic rice production fell 20 percent in just the first six months. Sri Lanka, long self-sufficient in rice production, has been forced to import $450 million worth of rice even as domestic prices for this staple of the national diet surged by around 50 percent.

The ban also devastated the nation’s tea crop, its primary export and source of foreign exchange.--AOSHQ quoting Foreign Policy

"I'm here from the Government to help."

Not only a lie.  A Very Deadly Lie.

Ex-UW Prof In a Snit Over RoJo

Oooohhhhh.....a has-been academic gets all snotty about Ron Johnson.

...Patrick Remington, an emeritus professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health, severely criticized Johnson and called his persistent questioning of medical science irresponsible.

"If he had a medical license these would be grounds for malpractice," said Remington, a former epidemiologist for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. ...

Let's talk about masks, Doc--which were useless BEFORE Fauci the medicine-man said "wear them," then "don't bother", then "wear them," then "wear TWO of them."

Shall we talk about the increasing evidence that Teh Vaxx has terrible side effects--not to mention that it's useless against the Chinese Communist weapon called "CoVid"?  How about The Vaxx's effect on pregnant women?

The era of "the doc is always right" is gone, medicine-man--largely because 'the doc' has been caught lying, obfuscating, and side-stepping over the bodies left by your "medicine."

Stay retired and keep your pie-hole shut.  You sound much more intelligent that way.

Bush Calls Zelenskiy "Churchill"

Oh, really?

Former President George W. Bush spoke with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on a video call on Thursday and called the world leader the "Winston Churchill of our time."

The virtual meeting took place at the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas, Texas. The two spoke for "a few minutes," according to Bush, and the former president thanked Zelensky for "his leadership, his example, and his commitment to liberty."...

Apparently Bush the Dumber doesn't keep up with the news.

Under Zelenskiy, Ukraine has become the fourth most corrupt country in the world.

Zelenskiy has also suppressed all opposition parties and nationalized TV news.

That's the sort of "liberty" George W Bush prefers, eh?

Courtesy Reminder

Given the volume and duration of the Screeching Of The Left:
