"Oh, How The Years Go By" (opens in separate window)

is the whole gov't in on it?

friday, january 1st, 2021

Every once in a while, most of us wind up in situations where we are completely baffled. It may be a simple situation, such as having looked literally everywhere for our reading glasses, and not having found them. Did they violate the laws of physics and just vanish? One knows that that cannot be true, and yet, as the old saying goes, once one has ruled out every logical possibility, only the illogical remains, no matter how unlikely it is.

[Full Title: "Is the whole government in on this fraudulent election?"]

Another situation is the one we are in now. Any informed person, with a modicum of sense, can see that the presidential election results, at best, are not to be trusted and at worst are rampantly fraudulent. Yet it seems that court after court, and investigative agencies one after the other, are turning a blind eye. Are they violating the laws of physics?

It turns out that the reading glasses did not disappear; they were in place, but pushed up, on one's forehead all along. There was a logical explanation after all.

And sadly, it turns out that the courts and government agencies were not turning a blind eye. They have been, all along, part of the fraud. No matter how unlikely that seems, it is the only answer remaining.

In other words, we lost this battle a long time ago. As soon as Trump was elected president in 2016, the dark state realized that it had blundered. Its members had underestimated the degree of fraud it would need to defeat him. This time, they removed all possibility of failure, and even then, they needed vastly more fraud than even they had anticipated. Stuffing the ballot boxes was not enough; they had to call time out, for a few hours, so they could print yet more ballots. Indeed, they printed so many more that the sheer number of them made it obvious that they were cheating.

One might think they overplayed their hand, that they had used a sledgehammer to swat a mosquito. In doing so, they removed all reasonable doubt — the election was clearly rigged. But the dark state was so desperate that its operatives cared nothing for how it seems to the informed observer. Nothing. They just had to make absolutely sure that there would be no way that Donald Trump would be declared the winner.

The culprits were not merely the usual suspects — the Adam Schiffs and Eric Swalwells and their ilk. As profoundly and obviously corrupt as they are, they are weak. They could not have pulled this off without some heavyweight criminals in high places, including the courts, the premier law enforcement agencies, the intelligence bureaus, and the private sector communications companies.

It is certain that President Trump has been a wrecking ball against the dark state. He came at it with courage, resolve, and a level of acumen that the left had dangerously underestimated. The 2020 election was, as the establishment saw it, the last and final chance to remove the threat he poses to their power. Had the election been honest, Trump would have won so overwhelmingly that the Democrat Party, for one, would have become a thing of the past. Trillions of dollars were at stake worldwide, including in China. People go to war for that kind of money and that level of power.

It is unsurprising, then, that there was nothing, literally nothing, from which the dark state would refrain, in its attack — not even if it destroys the republic. This was the final banzai charge. It was do or die.

There is only one remaining backstop that can defeat the dark state. It is we, the people, the heirs of 1776. In that year, the Founders declared their concerns not only for themselves, but for their as yet unborn "posterity." They cared about us. Will we care as much for our descendants?

A Day In The Life.

Up at 8a on Friday, Christmas Day, it was only 32° outside, still raining – had a couple smokes in the garage while the coffee brewed, did my DR (Type 1 Diabetic Routine - Blood Sugar Level Test and Sliding-Scale Insulin Shot), applied the CBD Hemp Ointment to my neck and shoulder, had simple toast for breakfast, and checked the weather and news.

We had very cold temps al day, flurries and the coming forecast called for 30s-40s-50s. No complaints from me; I don't want or need 18-20" of snow, or a worse blizzard, thankyouverymuch.

Becky came over around 12noon for Christmas Dinner, Spiral-Cut, Honey-Glazed Ham, Peas and Mashed Potatatoes with plenty of leftovers, and to visit with me to catch-up. She took the hambone and lots of meat home to make her famous and delicious Ham & Bean Soup. I grabbed a few hours on the couch, after the big meal, got back up around 6:30p, made a tiny dinner after my DR (I have to eat something after each insulin shot) and watched "History's Greatest Mysteries" on History, until 10:30, and unplugged.

Up at 5:30a on Saturday, to a bitter 13° and 1" of snow outside, I fired-up the furnace, made coffee, did the morning DR and made Scrambled Eggs, Ham & Toast. I ran some errands, down to Red Lion to the cleaners, who were still closed until Monday, and to a drive-thru exterior carwash, Rite Aid to p/u some waiting Rxs and back home by 12:30p. I did the midday DR, had a Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup, listened to a "CP Show" Podcast on local WSBA-FM until 2p, and had a short nap on the couch.

I'm still having problems with it getting dark so early, since Dec 23rd was the Winter Solstice, we're now mocing toward the Summer Solstice and the days will slowly be getting longer. I had dinner, watched "Gold Rush" until 9p, and bagged it for the bitter cold night ahead.

Sleeping-in until 9a on Sunday, it was 21° outside, but at least no snow and the sun was out. After coffee and breakfast, I worked on paperwork, paying utility bills online, until Becky stopped by with 3 large containers of her famous Ham & Bean Soup, and visit for a while. I went out for a short walk until my back started hurting, and drove down to the drive-thru carwash to get the Jeep cleaned-up. I caught a 2-3hr nap on the couch, had dinner and watched "Ancient Aliens" until 10p, and pulled the plug.

Awake at 8:15a on Monday, I hated to get up; I could have slept until 11 or even later. After the morning DR and breakfast, I posted the "Chris Plante Show" to FR, returned some voicemails, checked the weather and news. I had a call from the couple who bought my Ol' Nursery & Garden Center, asking if I could come down and see what they've done, and give them some ideas for new buildings, gardens and parking lots. I told them I could do it after lunch.

I arrived at the 20ac complex, and didn't recognize the place, Everything except the Main Greenhouse wth its cement floor, and 2 out-buildings were gone. I was stunned as we walked what was left of the once-magnificent property. I offered suggestions, and left at 4:30p. Disappointed, yes, but it's their property and they paid me a LOT of money, so it's their decision.

Home by 5p, I did the evening DR, had dinner, and watched some episodes from the "MotorTrend Channel", and quit arount 10:30p.

Up at 8:30a on Tuesday, I barely made the "CP Show" post on FR, did the morning DR, had coffee and breakfast, and did some errandds. I'm still getting 5-10 days/ gal of unleaded, ethanol-free 90oct gas. Heh.

Another day of nowhere to go, nothing to do, and my back was hurting, so I found plenty of light, undone chores at thw condo to do. By 8:30p, I was tired, and needed some sleep, so I shut down and hit the sack.

Up at 7a on Wednesday, I did the usual morning routine of DR, coffee and a small breakfast, before going out to get some errands done. I knew traffic in the stores, and on the roads, would get heavy, so I wanted to get as much done while it was still relatively light. I got back in time for lunch, Sherry stopped by to visit and spend 3hrs w/ me, making my day. I took a short nap on the couch, had dinner and watched some new show on Discovery; just can't remember the name of it, until 10p. Lights out.

Awake at 8:30a on Thursday, I hurried to post the daily final "CP Show" for 2020, do the morning DR, have coffee and Creamed Chipped Beef on Toast w/ Peas for breakfast. My cell had 3 messages on it, mostly from Rite Aid, so I went over to p/u the disbetes Rx crap refills. Thye place was packed with people trying to get in medical purchases before the end of 2020. Whot the hell cares?

After lunch, I had paperwork and filing to do, a few utility bills to get paid online and The "Rush Show" graphics posted to FR. Oh Gaaaaaawd, PLEASE, someone kill this racist nigger bitch! If I could get the shot, I'd take it.

I watched one of my favorite Discovery Cgannel series, "Serengeti", until 10p, then called it a year

See you next year...

Covid Relief Plus The Kitchen Sink Bill Bullshit.

The $900 billion stimulus package COVID-19 "relief" bill is exactly what one would expect from a dysfunctional, tone-deaf Congress: a pork-filled cluster filled with anything and everything that has nothing to do with the coronavirus pandemic or relief.

And in the swampiest thing ever, the bill, which is combined with a $1.4 trillion omnibus spending bill, is 5,593 pages long, or 5,583 pages too many, was given to lawmakers six hours before a vote to review what exactly is in it (hint: more pork than a Tyson Foods plant).

It harkens back to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) once explaining that a bill needed to be passed in order to find out what was in it. In a related story, our government is broken.

The top-line from the bill says a mere $600 per adult and $600 per child goes to those eligible, which is half of what adults received in another relief package passed earlier this year (the per-child payment was $500). Not hard to see that this amount is hardly enough to keep those struggling from staying out of poverty.

So where is the rest of the $1.4 trillion going?

Glad you asked.

Exhibit A: "Of the funds appropriated under title III of the Act that are made available for assistance for Pakistan, not less than $15,000,000 shall be made available for democracy programs and not less than $10,000,000 shall be made available for gender programs." Yep. $10 million. For gender programs. In Pakistan.

Exhibit B: Funds for "Resource Study of Springfield (Illinois) Race Riot." That riot occurred in (checks notes) 1908.

Exhibit C: "Statement Of Policy Regarding The Succession Or Reincarnation Of The Dalai Lama." We'll just leave that one there.

Exhibit D: There's actually a commission tasked with educating “consumers about the dangers associated with using or storing portable fuel containers for flammable liquids near an open flame."

Exhibit E: Another $40 million will be allocated "for the necessary expenses for the operation, maintenance and security" of The Kennedy Center, which received $25 million in another COVID-19 relief bill earlier this year. Also in a related story, the Kennedy Center has been closed.

Exhibits F, G, H, I, J: $86 million for assistance to Cambodia; $130 million to Nepal, $135 million to Burma, $453 million to Ukraine, $700 million to Sudan.

Exhibit K: The bill creates a Women's History Museum and an American Latino Museum as part of the Smithsonian. Overall, the Smithsonian gets (checks notes again) $1 billion.

You get the idea. It's the oldest trick in Washington: Take a bill that symbolically is overwhelmingly supported by the American people on its title alone (COVID-19 relief for those struggling due to the pandemic). Then attach every pet project possible, in this case by combining it with an omnibus spending bill, and away we go.

Then there's the gall of Pelosi, who politicized this process in stalling negotiations since the summer with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin until after the election to ensure her party’s presidential nominee got past the finish line.

“That is a total game-changer – a new president and a vaccine,” she said. “We have a new president – a president who recognizes that we need to depend on science to stop the virus.”

The kind of science that creates (checks notes once again) multiple vaccines in record time as was done under President Trump's Operation Warp Speed?

"Congressional Democrats have reached an agreement with Republicans and the White House on an emergency coronavirus relief and omnibus package that delivers urgently needed funds to save the lives and livelihoods of the American people," Pelosi wrote on Twitter on Sunday.

Again, using words like "emergency" and "urgently needed funds" that have been an emergency for many and urgently needed for months are the highest levels of insult.

Party power is always the goal with Pelosi. It may explain why her approval rating currently sits at 33 percent while Congress’s sits at 21 percent.

Another year, another spending bill stuffed with pork.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.
