          They simply tried it in the wrong place with the wrong kind of people. Those who do not provide their own food cannot possibly live without government. Those with violent tendencies will always become violent. The movement used violence to acheive their goals. More like socialism then anarchy.

            Did you know that we don’t eat that in Kentucky? We have Lee’s Famous Chicken instead

          2. Sapper 9

            Lee’s is way better than KFC.

            We have a local bar and grill that serves all you can eat fried chicken on Tuedays and that is cheaper than a tiny box of kfc.

          3. Weary Traveler

            KFC hasn’t been good in a long time. I’ll take Chick-Fil-A or Raising Cane’s over KFC any day.

          4. Sapper 9

            We have a raising caines and a Huey Mcgoos , but I haven’t tried either of them.

            I used to like Chik-fil-a, but I stopped eating their after the CEO said that we need to shine the shoes of black people.

          5. Sapper 9

            I used to make a big lunch order weekly with Chik-fil-a , but that has ended and one of the local bar and grills now fills that order.

          6. Weary Traveler

            I remember Kanye making a similar comment, but he said that Jews should have to work for Xtians. Isn’t that the very definition of slavery?

          7. Weary Traveler

            It’s a good thing Kentucky was also highlighted. I’ll just leave it at that. LOL

  1. bill smith

    I don’t know which, disqus or WP, but they are really annoying when they just end our comments on a given page.

    1. Weary Traveler

      If it was Disqus, W3P would be having this problem too, but they aren’t.

      Just here. I’m guessing it is WP.

      Now lets investigate the collusion of TaliBiden and his family with the Chinese Communist Party

  2. Tanto Greenberg tg)

    So, Nancy Pelosi and her chauffeur were out for a drive in the country, and as there were no other vehicles on the road they were going more than a little over the speed limit. Suddenly a cow wondered in their path and BAM! Hit her broadside. The chauffeur stopped on side of the road and Nancy said that since he was driving he should get out and check the cow. When got back into the limo he said, “It’s dead, but it was an old cow. Nancy then ordered him to go to the farmer’s house and tell him what happened which he did. He’d been gone a couple of hours and when he came back to the limo he was drunk as a skunk. His clothes were disheveled, his hair was a mess. Nancy asked “What happened to you? He said when the farmer answered the door I told him what happened. He shook my hand, invited me inside and while we drank a bottle of his best whiskey the farmer’s wife prepared the best steak dinner I’ve ever had, then his daughter made love to me. Nancy asked “What did you say to him?” Well, I told him that I was Nancy Pelosi’s chauffeur and I just killed the old cow.

    1. Weary Traveler

      HA!! I can see that happening. Except, Nancy would never be honest enough to have the driver alert the farmer to killing one of his livestock. Instead, she would try to find a way to pin it on Trump, or any of the Trump kids, even Baron.

    1. Weary Traveler

      What kind of a sicko actually practices that kind of…. “self-love” at work? Other than someone who voted for Biden.

      Good GAWD!! LOL

        1. Weary Traveler

          It IS a mental illness. And it is being celebrated by the evil among us that want depopulation in order to take us back to feudalism.

    2. Proud Conservative Mom

      GEVALT!! 😱😱😱😱😱😱

      These people aren’t just missing a few screws. The entire toolbox is gone.

      I cannot BELIEVE the world we live in.



    1. Weary Traveler

      What an idiot.

      I think Trump said it best at the CNN town hall with that stupid little twit who kept trying to bait him in to picking sides, when he said he wants a peace deal, no more war.

      Unfortunately, the powers that aught not be want war, and they want to bankrupt the west in the process.

      They would actually really love to bring that war here if they could, but only after disarming the population so we can’t fight back.

      I agree with the false flag angle. It wouldn’t surprise me if she turned out to be some patsy like Oswald.

        1. Weary Traveler

          The left is only good at one thing which is gaslighting.

          Just like they love weaponizing guilt. Just as they like trying to convince you it is your fault that there are starving kids in Africa, and it is your job to do something about it, and you have no right to your creature comforts, they use a similar logic with regards to mass shootings.

          Now they are making it sound like it is every gun owner in America’s fault that Ukrainians don’t have guns to defend themselves. Oh, wait…. It’s not about defending themselves, it’s is about fighting Zelensky’s BS war.

          Gee… What happened to all the weapons we already sent over there? Oh, that’s right; Zelensky sold them o the black market.

          1. Weary Traveler

            At this stage, I wouldn’t be surprised if he had more than enough money to make Elon Musk look like a charity case.

        1. Weary Traveler

          Of course. Because she made herself the strawman caricature they want to paint of those of us who are opposed to “the message”.

          How dare I not stand with Ukraine, and not be willing to sacrifice my lifestyle for a corrupt warlord like Zelensky. And how dare I not regard him as a modern day Winston Churchill. I must be one of the most awful people alive. Because, well, just look at that clown.

          It reminds me of why the Liberal media loves to focus on those losers from The Westoboro Baptist Church. “Look!! Here’s some awful people we can all agree we hate, right? They hate gay people, so they must be conservatives. Hey, let’s all beat up on them together.” “Hey, Conservatives… You don’t want to be like those awful people do you? S you better support gay marriage with us, otherwise we will just say you are with them.”

          1. Proud Conservative Mom

            I concur absolutely!

            Indeed, they have to depict us as being haters.
            Heck they call us Nazis.

            How dare we want this country to be governed via the Constitution?

            As Sarge once said: “The Constitution 24/7/365, no excuses.”


        1. Weary Traveler

          Funny thing is, the other day my mom was pointing out how much more my stepdad is helping out around their property after she laid down the law a few months back, letting hm know how exhausted she is.

          My answer to that was; “So I take it then you guys will be selling the house sooner rather than later, and he’ll be saying he wants to move back to the Bay Area.” She got a laugh out of that one.

      1. Weary Traveler

        They have to be the stupidest people on the face of the Earth. They defend those who embody all that they claim is evil about the west.

        I only wish I could send all the alphabet people to “Palestine”. It would certainly do us all a huge favor.

    1. Weary Traveler

      And neither one is a very good option. A lot more people are in therapy than you might think.

      Me personally, I would rather take the road that leads to questioning the status quo and defying what is wrong with it. I think it is called Punk Rock Ave. Or Counter Culture BLVD. LOL

  3. Weary Traveler

    The whole Mental illness defense is the lamest excuse ever. No one has a right to inflict their mental illness on to others.

    The left wants us to just let things happen to us because they hate us, and get off of the suffering of us “little people.” The real crime here in their eyes is really; “how dare you think you are a human being, and that you have, or even should have any basic rights at all.”

    Their only purpose is to make a Hell of Earth while they pass themselves off as saintly. They are the kings of gaslighting. They are very aware of their own hypocrisy. It’s part of how they like inflicting their cruelty on the rest of us.

    And the people that just stood there and watched a woman get raped… Seriously? May they all rot in Hell forever, and SOON!! Right along with the rapist.

    1. Proud Conservative Mom

      You positively NAILED it.
      The crux of the matter is, they don’t want us to have any rights at all.

      I don’t give a heck what anyone else says, about us not protecting our loved ones.
      They MUST be protected.

      1. Weary Traveler

        Even a stranger. Sickening that a bunch of people would just stand by and watch a woman get raped as the reported towards the end. Wasn’t the victim a human being? Wasn’t she someone’s loved one?

        And they would just stand by and let THAT happen with their dead glazed faces, no wonder they let the politicians get away with abusing them, and why we have the kinds of politicians we do.

        1. Proud Conservative Mom

          That really sickened me.
          It didn’t dawn on any of them that this woman is someone else’s loved one; that she is a PERSON.

          This is another side effect of being domiciled in Sodom and Amorah.
          We’re surrounded by evil, callous lunatics on every single level.

          1. Weary Traveler

            It reminds me of some of the stuff I read about Ancient Rome during its decline. When you have a corrupt society, life becomes very cheap.

        2. george linker

          Rape is a form of control, one exerting power over society. It is a standard form of military intervention.

          1. Weary Traveler

            And speaking of the Romans down below…. They are a classic example of how rape is a form of control. It was standard MO for their soldiers when they invaded. It was used to demoralize the men of the nations they conquered = raping their women.

          2. Weary Traveler

            Obviously not. For the sake of others, I will spare the graphic detail, but the alphabet people are proof that some are still stuck in the jungle.

    2. george linker

      Insanity is not only a defence it is also becoming the go to demand, accept my insanity. They are saying the insane are normal. It is an effort to undermine society and replace it with demonic control.

      1. Weary Traveler

        Right? It’s like Jr. High School logic.

        If a popular kid picks a fight with a geek, and the geek turns out to be a third degree black belt, and beats the crap out of the popular kid, leaving him with two black eyes and coming to school the next day on crutches, somehow the geek lost the fight, and got his ass kicked by the popular kid.

        It’s actually much worse than that with these people. But that’s your typical Democrat = the brain of a 12 year old.

    1. Weary Traveler

      Whenever these people are about to get nailed for something, there is always a false flag that leads to the death of many innocents. The Oklahoma City bombing is one example as is 9/11.

    1. george linker

      Mistakes like this are not mistakes they are efforts to manuipulate elections. A percentage of the people will now use the wrong ballots as planned. The election for which the ballots were printed shoud not happen is the only real remedy. Anything less is election manipulation and downright fraud. The democrats are up to shit again.

      1. Weary Traveler

        It’s the only way Democrats can win because they lost the people.
        Whoever they didn’t lose during the Trump years, they sure lost because
        of their tyrannical COVID policies as they showed themselves to be dictators. Only a very small handful of crazies would still vote for them.

    2. Proud Conservative Mom

      Of course, this was all fraud and cheating.
      We KNEW it.

      What troubles me is that I don’t see any legislation being put out to counteract it.

      I’m cheering Kari Lake on.
      She’s a real fighter.
      Of course, the election was stolen from her as well.

      1. Weary Traveler

        The elections were stolen from many. Dr. Oz, Tudor Dixon…. Among many others. But they just concede instead of fighting. Imagine if more of them tied up the courts like Kari Lake is.

    The Battle Against Inflation Is Nowhere Near Won

    The worst part is that inflation is actually very easy to tackle. One, cut spending. Two, back the currency with a solid tangible asset. Going back to the gold standard would be the best bet.

    The only reason this never happens is because of career politicians who get rich laundering money as they wait to collect their all too generous government pensions. We are basically glorified serfs. We work harder and harder for less and less each year all so degenerates like Hunter Biden can smoke crack and screw underage hookers.

    1. george linker

      It seems my resposes are showing in the wrong questions. I deleted it and now it does not let me respond in the right question,

    2. Proud Conservative Mom

      I told what you posted, earlier to someone on Twitter who was insisting that the U.S.S.A. has to pay its bills and raise the debt ceiling.

      It didn’t shock me that inflation is at a record 47%.
      One has to be opulent to purchase basic food.

      “The debt ceiling crisis is now the permanent condition of the nation’s fiscal governance because there is simply no political will to take on spending where it counts. That is, the $1.3 trillion national security budget and the the doomsday machine embodied in the automatic expenditures for the entitlements and mandatory spending accounts.”

      The Left is very purposefully doing this, along with the RINOS.

      NONE of this had to happen.

      On another note, the Gemarah talks about food prices being insanely high before Moshiach comes.
      It’s all coming to a head.

      It also talks about evil being very clearly defined (among other things) that is transpiring in real time.

      1. Weary Traveler

        People like the one you talked to do not realize our debt is a huge illusion and the whole thing is a giant ponzi scheme. A real audit of the Federal Resrve would prove this beyond any reasonable doubt. It only doesn’t happen because congress are the beneficiaries of the scam.

        But let’s go with the US has to pay it’s debts. Who took out the debts? The politicians. So why are we being made to suffer? How abut we start by going after their pensions and assets then?

  5. Proud Conservative Mom

    A new law has been introduced into New York’s state legislature with the goal of preventing tax-deductible donations from supporting Israeli settlements in Judea and Samaria, commonly known as the West Bank.

    The “Not on our dime!: Ending New York funding of Israeli settler violence” act was put forward by assembly member Zohran Mamdani (Queens, N.Y.-District 36).

  6. Proud Conservative Mom

    @dr_darko:disqus, I had an insidious missionary try to convince me that I don’t understand the meaning of the verses in TANACH today.
    FYI, the brainiac admitted to not understanding Biblical Hebrew.
    (This is so typical, I don’t even blink anymore.)

    I asked him if he even understood how ridiculous he sounds.
    I am positively fluent in Biblical Hebrew.
    I don’t have to rely on the translations of anyone.

    (THANK G-D, for these people. I don’t know how I managed all of my years without their teachings. /sarc.)

    I am so @#$_&-+ sick of all of them (pardon my language).


    Apologies for venting.
    He was going after a Jewish person.
    I wasn’t going to take it sitting down.

    1. John Gillis

      Ugh! Good afternoon, Rivka. I hate these missionaries. I’ve seen them in college and all I could do was roll my eyes. Jews for Jesus was especially egregious. But that aside, there was a church called “Boston Church of Christ”, and they had the worst reputation for recruiting on campus. The worst thing was that they tried to convert others to join their church, but like the Scientologists, they demanded exorbitant sums of cash from their new members.

      A rabbi who taught religious studies at the university gave them a bitter scolding for having the chutzpah for being stupid and arrogant enough to challenge his knowledge of Judaism and he made them look pretty foolish.

      1. Proud Conservative Mom

        Jews for J are relentless.

        Missionaries are constantly infiltrating Jewish groups on college campuses.

        It’s a huge problem.

        Good for the Rabbi!

    2. Weary Traveler

      You are going to love this… I came up with a great way to shut these people down you would appreciate. I tried this on Truth Social a month or two ago, and the thread got deleted when I angered the missionary so much that I got his true colors to come out, and his account got zapped because he was praising Hitler and Islam. In other words, he was an interloper from a troll farm, and I got him mad enough to drop the act. LOL

      Here’s what you do, which is basically what I did; Point out to them how amazing it is that a dog is capable of understanding the word “no” better than many humans, apparently. Then go on to say that it is probably because it is acceptable to whack a dog on the nose when saying “no” to them when they do something wrong, which is probably it sinks in. And then ask these missionaries if that’s what you need to start doing to get it through their empty little heads, which is start whacking them on the nose with a rolled up newspaper.

      I would love to see their response to that.

      1. Proud Conservative Mom

        I thought so as well.
        Two of the pictures are of the Kosel (Western Wall).

        FYI, Hashem swore that this wall would never be destroyed.
        As I always say, his track record is impeccable and proven.

    1. IsraelReader

      I heard firsthand, that there are developers want to do it, but many residents have no interest in the plan.

    1. IsraelReader

      It looks like, that unfortunately, “Alex”, has not come “full circle”, yet.
      He started out as a Chassidic boy, and today, sadly, appears to be bald-headed, without a kippa, and his “peyos” (side-locks) totally shaved off.

  7. bill smith

    Always after a crash of our comments section, a notice….
    “WordPress was updated to version 6.2.1 on your Managed WordPress site. “

      1. Weary Traveler

        All because a bunch of over-paid engineers don’t want to do their jobs properly.

    1. Weary Traveler

      I couldn’t get past the first paragraph. Of course, this is Medium so I am not surprised as they are known for drivel.

      I am certainly no “early bird”, but this is the most ridiculous thing I ever heard.

      There have been multiple studies regarding the primary differences between morning larks and night owls like myself. If anything, the world needs both, and the personality traits of both, along with the many variations in between.

      I have never looked at either or as being some inherent fault.

        1. Weary Traveler

          You got further than I did.

          I can’t believe people actually get paid to write such myopic drivel. Give me the paycheck. I’ll write a much better piece.

    2. Weary Traveler

      I was also just thinking… I bet a lot of leftist are not really night owls as they are just lazy. Which, BTW, bothers me as a night owl that I get to be branded along with those bad actors. Which is the whole point of the stupid we are made to live with in this life.

      So of course, it would make sense if they are being attacked for being lazy, that they would have to make the opposite = being productive, as a sign of something negative. And in the eyes of a leftist, nothing is worse than being a “racist”. Never mind that is what they all actually are in reality, and just like projecting on to others hoping we wont notice their own moral failings.

    3. Sapper 9

      A leftist city council person from Washington was demanding free housing for pedophiles, calling them a “vulnerable population.

      1. Weary Traveler

        They deserve to be “vulnerable.” The only housing they should get is inside a crematorium.

    4. Proud Conservative Mom

      I stopped reading halfway through the article.
      I couldn’t handle the insanity of it.

      Moreover, as @algorithmicanalyst:disqus stated, it is ABSOLUTELY shallow thinking.

      I was always an early riser and hard worker.
      I’m obviously a white supremacist. 🙄🤦

      EVERYONE has to be a victim.
      The bigger the victim the better.
      These fruitcakes keep on trying to shame us.

      It won’t work for anyone who has any modicum degree of intelligence.

      The sheeple will buy into it.

      1. Weary Traveler

        It’s been so lopsided lately thanks to the clowns and the Aspies, a MAJOR over-correction is needed.

        I would really like to enjoy paradise on this side of Heaven if possible.

  8. Weary Traveler

    He raises some really good points here.

    Especially since the whole self-esteem movement of the 1970s, there certainly is a lot of faux positivity, and the self-help gurus. I have always been one to say that “life coach” is a euphemism for “unemployed.”

    It is actually amazing how is you look up anything related to psychology online, it is all pop psychology, and offers no real solutions to anything. The way they over generalize people is dehumanizing in itself. What is scary about this that we haven’t yet seen the full effects of the PTSD that has been inflicted on our society from the mass psychological abuse that was inflicted on us with the COVID hype.

    If all we have is pop psychology and these self-help gurus, we’re in a lot of trouble.

    1. bill smith

      3 basic types of people… producers, assistants and thieves. The peddlers of false hope are a sub-category of thieves.

      1. Weary Traveler

        Agreed. I also love his other point at the end about the warped morality of leftists. What they peddle as compassion is actually cruelty. Cruelty towards the person they are saying they are helping, and to everyone else in society that gets to deal with the consequences, i.e., needle exchange programs.

    2. george linker

      I put that man in the same category as all the others he talks against. He is selling books to tell people how to live.

      1. Weary Traveler

        He even addresses that. The difference between him, and I would even add Jordan Peterson to the same group as he, and the others is actually offering reality based solutions as opposed to the pop psychology drivel that is so widely available everywhere.

        Rabbi Lapin has one also where he uses the Exodus story as an example of working past your problems.

          1. Weary Traveler

            Exactly. When you get down to it, Rabbi Lapin’s video podcasts are about self-help/improvement. But it isn’t the fluff you get from the pop psychology of today.

            Ever notice how he not only uses biblical examples, but examples from philosophy and literature, even movies, and real life anecdotes? He does that to show certain truths really are simply just objective realities. And that self-improvement isn’t usually as easy as just thinking nice thoughts, but actually making real effort, that often times can be difficult.

            It’s what people need to hear as opposed to just what people want to hear.

            He’s pragmatic, not new-agey.

          2. Proud Conservative Mom

            Rabbi Lapin is most definitely not fluff!

            Exactly. He gives examples from all over.
            I opine it’s because he thinks that he will be able to get more people to relate this way.

            Yup. Self-improvement takes real effort and can be very difficult at times.

            BINGO. He’s very pragmatic and not new-agey.

      1. bill smith

        It’s amazing what people can learn to like after becoming familiar. Giving my son a ride to school everyday, I thought his taste in music was complete crap… but day after day, I began to actually like much of it even to the point of listening to it by choice. Now at one of the pools I go to, the lifeguards are shocked and amazed…. when I arrive, they ask me what music they should play on the swimming pool system… I suggest some of the songs I learned because of my son and it actually freaks them out.

        1. Weary Traveler

          Marty and I have been talking a lot about acquired tastes and what not, and can you really acquire a taste for something, or not.

          And, is it ever worth it to.

          My view is, no, it is not worth it, even if having a taste for something means that you are more widely accepted either by society as a whole, or among certain circles.

          I have the “just be you” attitude. Someone doesn’t have to enjoy all the things I enjoy, or even certain things I enjoy to be my friend and hang out with me. We like what we like.

          1. Weary Traveler

            I think a lot of people work that way to a certain extent. Like my dad has his friends from the music world from his days as a DJ and promoter/producer, but also his friends from his motor rail car group, and the baby racoon rescue work that he does.

          2. Sapper 9

            It would be very dull to hang out with them otherwise, it would be like hanging with yourself but in volume.

            I am considered by most to be a life of the party type, but, a little of me goes a long way; I could not imagine a group all like me, it would be pure insanity. Lol

          3. Weary Traveler

            Yes, I try to be a better version as well. In spite of all the negative influences.

          4. IsraelReader

            Do like to drink beer?
            If yes, did you always like beer, even as a kid, or did you acquire the taste for it at some later time in life?

          5. Proud Conservative Mom

            There are definitely some things that a person can acquire a taste for it over time.

            For myself, broccoli, spinach, and cauliflower are perfect examples.

            With regard to music however, I opine that is different.
            That’s just this one woman’s opinion. 🤷

            I only like music that makes me feel connected to Hashem.
            I only listen to Jewish music.

            My sons have introduced me to beautiful songs over time.
            (It’s very hard to keep up with all of the singers.)
            Obviously, I don’t care for every song.

            Most of the time I do.
            I was introduced to Nolda this week.

            It moved me to tears in a very good way.


          6. Weary Traveler

            My whole thing is once I don’t like something, I am pretty much done with it. Maybe I am petty, but when I tell some people that I do not like a particular item, and they happen to like that item, they will say, “that’s because you haven’t had when it was prepared right.”

            1.) How would they possibly know how it was prepared?
            2.) It feels like I am having something pushed on me I do not want. Hence, the whacking the dog on the nose with the rolled up newspaper starts to come to mind. LOL

          7. Proud Conservative Mom

            Oh yes.
            The “you just haven’t prepared it right” line.
            I’ve heard that ad nauseam.

            That analogy regarding the dog really made me laugh out loud.

            On another note, Ben Shapiro and his wife had a healthy little boy today.
            Amidst the congratulations and Mazal Tov wishes, someone wished him Congratulations and then said that perhaps he’ll introduce this one to J.
            I advised him that Ben is an Orthodox Jew.

            He said he knew that, but it wasn’t impossible.
            After all, he saw an Olympic winning Decathlon male change his gender.

            I told him that Ben is a very proud Orthodox Jew.
            He is very solid and proud of his religion and heritage and it will never happen.

            I took a preemptive strike and said that he wouldn’t ever make any leeway with me either.

            These scum are like cockroaches.
            They’re everywhere.

            I have to remember to use your material next time.

          8. Weary Traveler

            First and foremost, that is so awesome Ben had a baby today. That is so awesome.

            Yes, leave it to some a-hole missionary to ruin such a beautiful moment. I am so sick of it. I have actually had to drop a few F— JC’s on these people.

          9. Weary Traveler

            Since I cannot whack them on the nose with a rolled up newspaper… LOL

            I did have to go that far once. Again, because some people don’t take “no” for an answer. It’s only two little letters. How hard can it be?

          10. Proud Conservative Mom

            There are definitely some things that a person can acquire a taste for it over time.

            For myself, broccoli, spinach, and cauliflower are perfect examples.

            With regard to music however, I opine that is different.
            That’s just this one woman’s opinion. 🤷

            I only like music that makes me feel connected to Hashem.
            I only listen to Jewish music.

            My sons have introduced me to beautiful songs over time.
            (It’s very hard to keep up with all of the singers.)
            Obviously, I don’t care for every song.

            Most of the time I do.
            I was introduced to Nolda this week.

          11. Weary Traveler

            I used to like it, but not all of it. The big domestic brands always tasted like swill to me. I was more partial to German beer. But as of the last ten, almost 15 years now, alcohol makes my stomach queasy, so I haven’t had any kind of an adult beverage since.

    1. bill smith

      Billy Joel just turned 74…. and as far as I remember, Mic Jagger is about the same age as Bidet.

          1. Weary Traveler

            I would not have guessed you were 50 just looking at you. I would have guessed early 40s.

          2. Proud Conservative Mom

            That’s very kind of you.
            I’ll take it. 😊😊😊

            You are aging very well yourself as well.
            I would think ten years younger.

            Life is going by so very fast.
            It’s crazy.

          3. Weary Traveler

            With how crazy everything has been, I am surprised my hair didn’t turn white. LOL

          4. Weary Traveler

            I got highlights too. I like mine. I think they look cool. But my hair is also so dark brown that it is almost black, so to me it looks kind of cool.

      1. Weary Traveler

        BTW; I notice he and I obviously shop through some of the same vendors. I have that exact shirt he’s wearing.

          1. Weary Traveler

            Keep in mind, in the independent music world, if they are able to be full time musicians, and live comfortably, it means they are living in middle class neighborhoods like yours or mine.

            Someone like Moorings is certainly not rolling in money like Mic Jagger.

            Now, although that is a specialized line of clothing that you are not going to find in a department store, you are talking specialized boutiques for brick and Mortar like my good friend, Terri owns down in LA. Or online boutiques, or even through the makers themselves. It’s not Nordstrom expensive, but it isn’t Kohl’s cheap either.

            Depending on the maker, and style, a button-up men’s shirt like that can run anywhere from $40 to $80. Mine cost me $60.

          2. Weary Traveler

            Indeed. I used an online retailer based in Lithuania. When I was working, I certainly expanded that portion of the wardrobe. Considering what I spent, I got a good amount of shirts and pants, and even a nice pair of boots.

            I’m laughing a bit right now because I can just hear what Marty would say in the conversation. You say “not bad” he would say “that’s a lot of money for a shirt.” Keeping in mind, and I am not trying to be mean, that this is guy who does his clothes shopping at the bargain bin at Costco. LOL

          3. Proud Conservative Mom

            It’s all relative.
            I tend to shop when things are on sale.
            I hate paying full price.

            On average, my shirts from Lands End cost me $20-34 dollars per shirt and I always scour the internet for discount codes in addition.

            I have also done extremely well on ebay.
            I have gotten timeless and classic looks for a “song.”
            No one knows any better.
            They’re new and I receive alot of compliments.

            Of course, I never have an outdated look and will add a couple of things that are the current trend (sans the insane “Little House on the Prairie” look that was in this year.
            I wish I was joking.
            I’m not.)

          4. Weary Traveler

            Land’s End is a good one. They have some nice stuff.

            Marty, OTOH, has never been one to care at all about style, just comfort.

    1. Weary Traveler

      FDR was a failure on many other levels.

      Biden is no one to criticize though. Not only is he a failure as both a president and as human being, I will never forget his dark red speech, and other speeches similar to that he has given since.

      He sounds nothing at all like say, Winston Churchill. But he does sound a lot more like Hitler.

      As far as I am concerned, no Democrat should ever be allowed to talk about the holocaust ever again. Because they are the problem. The only way they could make anything right at this point would be public suicides.

      1. Proud Conservative Mom

        Agreed on all fronts.

        Indeed, no Dem should be allowed to talk about the Holocaust.
        They make me sick.

        I opine that Bidet* would’ve been a Neville Chamberlain.
        He always was a fool.

        1. Chief Mac

          The reason I do not agree with the allegorical comparison with Neville Chamberlain is that he was a good man that was stupid enough to believe he could make a deal with evil for the good of the people. TaliBiden is an evil person that will make a deal with anybody for the good of his bottom line. He just doesn’t give a damn

          1. Chief Mac

            He is evil not naive and he makes Chamberlain positivity brilliant in comparison

          2. Weary Traveler

            I have to respectfully disagree. I have a very hard time believing that pacifists are “good” people on any level. Even if stupid, stupid people tend to be far more destructive than those who are intentionally evil.

            Either knowingly or not, they weaponize our empathy and kindness against us, and do nothing but evil while claiming some moral high ground. I simply have zero use for people like that.

          3. Proud Conservative Mom

            That was my first reaction.

            (I’m temporarily a bit insecure regarding my reasoning skills. 🙈🙉🙊) I always felt that about pacifists like Chamberlain.

            Moreover, he was very evil because he made a deal with Hitler.
            He was a fool for not understanding that Hitler wouldn’t be satisfied with just the Sudetenland.
            These monsters never are satisfied with something relatively small.
            They want it all.

        One other thing is, bombing the railways would have helped the Allied war effort, by diverting German resources from other railways that were being used to shift troops back and forth, etc.

      I remember this one

      Theodore Landon “Ted” Streleski (b. 1936) is an American former graduate student in mathematics at Stanford University who murdered his former faculty advisor, Professor Karel de Leeuw, with a ball-peen hammer on August 18, 1978. Shortly after the murder, Streleski turned himself in to the authorities, claiming he felt the murder was justifiable homicide because de Leeuw had withheld departmental awards from him, demeaned Streleski in front of his peers, and refused his requests for financial support. Streleski was in his 19th year pursuing his doctorate in the mathematics department, alternating with low-paying jobs to support himself.

      It is, oddly I have parts of my life that keep circling around as if I have been guided to it.

      It has recently happened again, with a donation from a local restaurant to a special Olympics event that my youngest daughter was helping to put together.

      My professional life had just circled through her business in the oddest way; then my daughter told me that every year her business has provided a donation of catering the event.

      The story is long, but, that is the most recent chapter in this. Lol

        That’s wonderful!
        There is no such thing as a coincidence.

        On another note, my husband is giving a presentation in your state (in St. Louis).

    The Israel Defense Forces confirms reports of a suspected car-ramming attack in the northern West Bank town of Huwara.

    Troops are scanning the area for the alleged assailant, who is thought to have fled toward the Nablus area.

    One Israeli man lightly hurt in the suspected attack is taken to the Beilinson hospital in Petah Tikvah, the Rescuers Without Borders emergency service says.

    “US President Joe Biden said Russia had suffered more than 100,000
    casualties in Bakhmut, the destruction of which
    Zelensky compared to the
    US World War II atomic bomb attack on Hiroshima, in Japan.”
    Reasonable to assume that there have been Ukrainian losses.
    This war is an insanity. Who on either side would want it.I find it ditticult to continue supporting Zelensky whether or not he is doing the right thing’

    1. Weary Traveler

      Consider this; if Russia was really as bad off in this entire conflict as we have been told, then why has the war continued for over a year and half, and the west has had to spiral itself in to further bankruptcy leading to hyper-inflation, and deplete its own resources for so little to have changed?

      As you know, I have no favorable view of Zelensky. I would go as far as to say that everything that has been said about Putin actually applies to Zelensky + 1,000.

      If I am going to forced to choose a side in this, then I would have to say “I’m rootin’ for Putin.” Because it would be very bad news for NATO and western intelligence, who are far worse actors than Putin.

        1. Weary Traveler

          I do admit that I do have somewhat of an “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” mentality. I truly despise NATO and our three letter agencies with a passion, and that included the top brass at DoD who love wars and acting like little emperors to justify their inflated budgets, while gaslighting us by saying that to question them and their motives is somehow “unpatriotic”.

          But overall, and even that aside, it is the west and NATO that have been violating their agreements with Russia since the Cold War ended. The people propping up Zelesnky would love to see the US and Russia fire nukes at each other, and see both countries destroyed. They are really no less evil than the evil fanatical mullahs in charge of Iran.

          Donald Trump says he can solve it all in 24hrs, and I believe him. But again, there are those who don’t want him to, and not just because it would make Trump look good. They are literally willing to burn down the whole western hemisphere just to keep their own crimes from being exposed, and themselves from ever having to face the firing squad they so deserve to face.

            THANK YOU.
            I had this argument with someone who read what I wrote about cutting spending (I named several ways).
            He said that we have to be responsible, pay our bills, and raise the debt ceiling.

            I responded: NO. Just NO. We’re in debt many trillions of dollars and it’s unsustainable.
            The spending has to be drastically slashed.
            For starters, all of the duplicate departments in the federal government should be shut down. The IRS agents that keep on being increased to weaponize the government against We the People, should be fired. The pork barrel legislation has to end, and promises regarding it need to be walked backwards.
            You get the idea.

            In the private sector the credit cards would have been cut a very long time ago.

          2. Sapper 9

            No one could map all of the agencies and what they do.

            First cut all the grants to the “non-profits” and “ngos” , make every agency account for where every penny went of last Years budget , stop the free handouts to the world, stop defending Europe, let them pay for their defense.

            Not a single penny to illegals.

            Recently the Bidet regime gave a $60,000 grant of our money to a drag queen that writes children’s books.

            Go back to the enumerated powers .

            Raising the debt ceiling allowing our government to borrow to pay it’s bills makes our government a ponzi scheme.

          3. Weary Traveler

            I would also take away the pensions and healthcare benefits to the politicians. And to all government workers for that matter. Just to make a point. Okay… Just to be a jerk. …to them. LOL

            Borrowing money devalues all other currency in circulation including the dollars that are paid back, it is a form of default.

            I will make a very simple explanation; if I borrow a dollar and pay 3% interest on it , then devalue all other dollars by creating 8% inflation, the dollar I return is worth $.92 + .03 interest = $.95 , shorting you $.05.

            At some point no one will loan us money at reasonable terms

    Democrats Eye Transplants For Illegals – NYT

    NY legislators are planning to make Americans’ organ donations – especially kidney transplants – available to migrants ahead of thousands of US citizens – making Social Security Numbers pointless.

    A bill which is under consideration in the State Legislature would add kidney transplants to the limited menu of emergency medical services provided to undocumented immigrants without insurance, the NYT writes.

    8,500 people in New York state are waiting for transplants, but because illegals “face major impediments” to the operations, they should be given greater access, it’s claimed.

    In 2021, 820 Americans died while waiting for a donor because they became ill “before an organ became available,” an official report states.

    🚨New – European officials are quietly preparing for the possibility Biden loses the next election

    There’s still more than a year to go before U.S. voters head to the polls, but at the heart of the European Union, officials are already racing to get as much as possible done before any potential change of leadership in the White House.

    “There is unprecedented close cooperation and coordination between the EU and the current U.S. administration. It goes from official levels to the highest levels,” an EU official, who preferred to remain anonymous due to the sensitive nature of the situation, told CNBC.

    “The EU is aware that this [cooperation] is not a given and such approach might change when there is someone like [former President Donald] Trump in the White House again. And the EU tries to use this momentum to advance [a] number of files, topics where there are shared interests,” the official added.

    Shavua Tov, everyone!

    Question, and maybe you’ll have some insight. I fear that since God has been removed from our society, it has degenerated into an abyss that seemingly matches the Jerry Springer Show. At times, I feel like Lot, before leaving the city of Sodom, and opine whether or not I should leave the US. The only reason I would not leave is because this nation is still the most gun-friendly nation (feel free to correct me if I’m mistaken), and I think at least I can fight if and when the s*** hits the fan.

    Is America still worth fighting for? I’d like to believe so. I would like to believe that there are enough Americans who feel as I do and would fight back against the idiocy that has been perpetrated on our society by the Marxists.

    Thoughts? If I were to give up on the US, I’d head to Israel, at least to give support to the IDF in any manner I could.

    Pardon my rant, but seeing too much of the gender nonbinary nonsense, the border flooding and every stupid kid getting a gender studies degree has me beyond disgusted.

      Why do you think it is just America ? Sitting here in the U.K., it’s just the same.This sex-change insanity is invading our schools, our government is revolting.
      and protests by idiots are all over the place, and it seems to be the same in most other countries. It’s not America that’s going down the drain, it’s everywhere.
      Running away never was the answer to anything.

      1. george linker

        The world is in a downward spiral of sin that will not end short of gods return. There is nothing anyone can do about it when evil is in control of the world.

      2. Proud Conservative Mom

        I concur with the concept overall, but with one quid pro quo.

        Sometimes it’s time to leave.
        Our passports are updated in case we have to leave at any moment.

        Never Again won’t be Never Again until Moshiach comes.

    2. Weary Traveler

      My short answer is, we have no other choice but to fight for our homeland. Not just our country, but our states and cities.

      Indeed America is still worth fighting for, and is because of our Bill of Rights and Federalist papers. Most other parts of the world are actually in worse shape than us.

      I will tell you exactly what I say with regards to blue state vs. red state, and if leaving your blue state for the seemingly greener pastures of a red state. First of all, the same interlopers who ruined blue states like my home state of California, will not rest until they have taken all states, even solid red states like Florida, Texas, Idaho, and South Dakota, all of which, I might add, have blue pockets in their larger cities.

      They don’t want to keep it confined there. Just look at Nevada and Arizona right now. Nevada went from red to swing, to now blue. Same thing in Arizona, and both states were popular destinations for California expats fleeing the likes of San Francisco Democrats which actually run the state because San Francisco has its own Tammany Hall. Even more so than LA. Just look at the top leadership in state government here, from elected officials like the governor, and top appointed officials. More come from the Bay Area, namely San Francisco, than even Los Angeles which is a much larger city.

      This alone should be very telling that things are not on the up and up here.

      The way you are told the story is that blue state expats move to red states, fail to learn their lessons and like locusts, vote the same way and ruin those states. Although there is truth to that narrative, it is not even half of what else is really happening, and how it is all by design. It’s called “displacement.” Empires have carried out similar tactics when they would conquer one region as they would displace the local population, and replace them with peoples from another conquered territory, so that no one would have any connection to the land in which they were domiciled, therefore they would be less likely to defend it.

      It’s another aspect of the divide and conquer technique, and we are seeing it play out domestically right now. But between states and our fellow citizens instead of whole countries, with domestic politics being the vehicle.

      You would think people in red states would be stoked about conservative refugees fleeing their blue states for red states, but I can tell you that is not really the case. I have brought this up before, and it bears repeating. Whether I go on Truth Social, or even YouTube at some realtor’s channel talking about a popular destination in a red state, most of the feedback from the locals, even to their fellow MAGA patriots is all the same = “Don’t come here, we’re full.”

      I am going to make a few recommendations to you on some things to look in to regarding this topic, and have you get back to me with your thoughts on this because I think this is a very important conversation we should all be having. Consider it a homework assignment, and I am assigning to anyone who is asking themselves the same questions you are right now, and really wants a grasp on what is happening right now.

      1.) Look in to a book called “The Road to Somewhere” by David Goodhart.

      I have talked about this very book here before, and for good reason. I highly recommend looking for interviews with the journalist talking about it. He is the only person on the left I know about who has not demonized Trump voters and Brexit supporters. He makes some excellent points that I think are very noteworthy for discussion.

      2.) Take the time, if you have not already, to watch the video I just posted below from the Epoch Times interview show, California Insiders where they interview a former San Francisco City Supervisor. As a local, I can tell you he is hitting the targets a lot more than he is missing them. Take some time to digest what he is saying, and let me know what you think.

      3.) Check out this short clip from Crossroads, where he interviews the host of California Insiders.

      It’s not a very long interview, but I would also add that I highly recommend checking out the documentary mentioned here. I did watch it, and it is very telling.

      Now, I realize a lot of what I told you is very California-centric, however, keep in mind that Cali is the canary in the coalmine. Meaning, that other states will follow suit as well, if this isn’t stopped in ALL 50 states. Not just the red states.

      1. Weary Traveler

        As long as there are people around who still believe in G-d, G-d has not been totally removed from society. Remember in Genesis the story of Lot in Sodom, where G-d was more than willing to spare the city if Lot could find just one other righteous man in the city. Just one. There is far more than just one here in America, and even other parts of the world.

        Man can turn his back on G-d, but cannot remove G-d. The world still belongs to Hashem as it is His creation.

        1. george linker

          In the story god did not save the cities, he removed the ones who still believed destroying the cities when they left. The cities were not given yet another chance. It was enough is enough. America has fewer then most people think and the ones that are left are under constant attack.

          1. Weary Traveler

            Fewer than anyone thinks? I disagree. We have a corporate media that loves to amplify the crazies and bad actors making them seem much larger in number than they are.

            It’s part of the mass psychological warfare they have been conducting on us for years. There are still far more good people than bad.

            The biblical story is that G-d doesn’t punish the innocent alongside the guilty as many Xtians like to claim when they push their end time BS, or use any thing they can to scare people in to worshiping JC and in to their churches, like when Jerry Falwell claimed 9/11 was G-d’s “judgement” on America over Roe V. Wade. I am pro life and I find that statement of his evil and disgusting. And funny enough, the Muzzies who supported and carried out the attack agree with him.

            I know that’s not who G-d is.

          2. george linker

            I put the numbers in america of those who follow god below 10 percent of the population. God can destroy an entire region leaving the one house of good people.

          3. Weary Traveler

            I would argue the numbers are far greater than that. Ten percent might be more applicable if you are talking about the truly lost and truly evil.

          4. george linker

            I was actually being generous. I find few really believe in god any more. It is little more than window dressing.

          5. Weary Traveler

            I would argue that what is actually happening now is more people questioning *religion* and and being more turned off by it, especially the church, as Xtianity is still the world’s largest religion with nearly one third of the world’s population identifying as some variation of one.

            As I have stated here in the past, Xtianity is more of a default position in the west when it comes to religious beliefs. And that is because for better or worse, and there are plenty of arguments to be made for both, Xtianity has been a very influential part of western civilization.

            With that said, since the COVID scam, ALL institutions are being questioned more, including religion, with the church taking a bit of a nose dive in regards to dwindling attendance. That does NOT however, necessarily equate either becoming an Atheist, or even going completely the other way and getting in to the big LARP called Satanism.

            If anything, when people question religion, they become more agnostic. Where they go from there depends on many factors that are unique to each individual. It stands to reason with so much of the stuff people were told in churches over the years, or even how the church’s baggage has surfaced more and more.

            Whether it is more people questioning the church, religion itself, education, “the science”, government, etc., it is actually a healthy thing because it means that things are coming to a head, and we can finally start separating the wheat from the chaff, and because of the mass corruption in all the above institutions, there is a lot of chaff in need of being purged. Once enough people can get past the hurt and the resentment, more will find their way.

          6. george linker

            Most don’t even know their religion has been replaced by the religion of science thru life long indoctrination. People don’t question science they believe science. It is totally evident with vaccines with the masses pushing for laws to mandate vaccines. It is the greater good of public health that is being invoked.

          7. Weary Traveler

            The problem was after the 30 Years War, people correctly was how ridiculous the church was, and where it lead, but the falsely believed that only religion had that flaw when taken to its extreme. They didn’t think science could do that, but that was also because they had not yet seen how science could be so abused and its ugly side had not been fully revealed yet. Especially like it is now via the COVID tyranny and climate hysteria.

          8. george linker

            It is society that is the problem. According to sociology religion is what ever society is worshipping currently. Religion is what ever society assigns excessive belief in. The real problem is no one knew what religion was in the past.

            Hero worship is foolish or excessive admiration of someone

            Worship is to honor or respect (someone or something) as a god


        2. Proud Conservative Mom

          Actually that’s erroneous.
          Hashem told ABRAHAM that He would save Sodom and Amorah if ABRAHAM was able to find TEN righteous people.

          Your closing paragraph is extremely spot on.

          1. Weary Traveler

            Didn’t it start with ten, and then bargained down to just one?

            If I recall the context correctly; G-d already knew there wasn’t a single soul in that city that was salvageable, but allowed Lot to see for himself. However, the fact that Lot was being warned to get out first, also proves G-d’s word correct, as he wasn’t going to destroy the city until Lot and his family left, i.e., He was not going to punish the innocent along with the wicked.

            Unless I am getting something wrong, that is how I recall the story.

          2. Proud Conservative Mom

            It started out with 50 and Abraham bargained it down to 10.
            Hashem allowed ABRAHAM to see for himself that there wasn’t even a quorum of ten righteous people.
            Hashem didn’t communicate with Lot at all.

            Lot was not a righteous person.
            He was willing to protect his guests by offering up his own daughters to the angry mob.
            (Who would do such a thing?! 🤦)

            Lot and his family were saved due to the merit of Abraham.
            He wouldn’t have been saved otherwise.

            Lot’s wife didn’t follow instructions so she was turned into a pillar of salt measure for measure as a result of her evil actions.

            She went around to her neighbors asking to borrow salt because she needed it for her guests.

          3. Weary Traveler

            “He was willing to protect his guests by offering up his own daughters to the angry mob.”

            I never understood that part either. That’s the kind of situation where a high powered machine gun comes in real handy. LOL…

            I know the mob were a bunch of “pillow biters”, and maybe that was to make some point, but still… Like one really needs to go that far to prove said point.

          4. Weary Traveler

            “Pillow Biter” is a euphemism for a homosexual, since Sodom was supposed to be like the San Francisco of its time, but even worse.

          5. Weary Traveler

      Good afternoon.

    Montana’s governor on Saturday signed Senate Bill 458, which states there are only
    two sexes – male and female – and they are assigned from birth
    The bill allows transgender people to ‘identify with whatever gender, but not sex, they wish’
    Montana follows a lead set by Tennessee, Kansas and North Dakota: The Human

        Only 10% of the mate to female transvestites are homosexuals, the other 90% just like to play dress-up, it is a perverted sexual fetish and voyeurism

        1. Weary Traveler

          What is terribly sad about it, is that it just goes t show how much sexual confusion and sexual trauma is out there. “Let it all hang out” they said. Things really went down hill from there.

    It’s Not Really About the Data

    “If these debates don’t go anywhere, it’s because the two sides aren’t really arguing about data. They’re arguing about the type of world they want to live in.”

    BINGO!! This is why I was saying early on, at the very beginning in fact, that it was a human rights issue. Even if the virus was as deadly as they claimed, and the biomedical tyranny was the only way to live, I would rather just have died from the virus. Because their world was not one worth living in at all.

    “By the same token, those of us who oppose indefinite masking did not stumble on our position because of this or that study. Our deepest objections spring from such data-agnostic arguments as: masks dehumanize us, interfere with communication and connection, and place a disproportionate emphasis on keeping people safe from each other. Even if high-quality masks give us an increment of extra protection from a virus, a perma-masked world does not strike us as mentally, socially, or spiritually healthy.”

    Because not only is it unhealthy, it is Hell on Earth. The bit we experienced was too much, and I am beyond disgusted by the fact that it happened in my lifetime, and that I was alive to experience even a nanosecond of it.

    I remember Andrew “Mr. Nipple Rings” Cuomo saying “there is nothing worse than dying.” I disagree with him. Not living is worse than dying. In a world run by evil petty little tyrants like him, Hair Gel Newsom, and Gretchen “Mega Karen” Whitmer, suicide is salvation. That is because those people hate humanity and all that make us human. That means our relationships. They really wanted to outlaw meaningful relationships because it pisses them off to see people happy together. Whether it is friends laughing together or a couple in love, it pisses them off. Because it holds up a mirror to them and shows what miserable worthless pieces of shi*t they really are. Pardon my French. But they are a-holes.

    1. george linker

      Debates are never about the data anyhow. Debates are about the conclusions drawn from the data. Data is in itself meaningless until applied to something in specific. In fact there was no debate with covid. The ones who believed attempted to force their beliefs on those who did not agree with them. It was really an effort to force the religion of science onto everyone. It was the belief that science could improve the human body with fake elixers and paper masks. It was the forced control by the medical establishment. The who is meeting right now to exert even more control over the people.

      Their own words:

      The World Health Assembly is the decision-making body of WHO. It is attended by delegations from all WHO Member States and focuses on a specific health agenda prepared by the Executive Board.

      1. Weary Traveler

        It’s not even about science or improving the body. It never was. That’s just the hook they like to use as a facade to mask their true evil intent. It is always about control. Whether done in the name of religion, science, or security, it is all totalitarianism.

          1. Weary Traveler

            Perfect example of what I am talking about. It’s totalitarianism. And like all tyrants, they are weaponizing our own fears, and even our empathy for others against us to gain more and more power, and to keep it indefinitely.

          2. george linker

            And the pandemic was the tool, the plan set in motiion. Even the article you posted alludes to the next event with its closing statement (below). They fail to see they are implementing totalitarian government by science. And it is being implemented under the illusion of saving the planet and public health.

            How can we protect grandma while also safeguarding dignified and purposeful living in the free world? That’s the data-agnostic discussion our politicians and public health advisors should be having the next time around

          3. Weary Traveler

            Exactly, it was a tool much like terrorism was used as a tool to strip away our fourth amendment rights, and and start endless wars for the sole purpose of money laundering.

            The “what abut poor grandma” is a great example of weaponizing guilt and empathy. It’s the whole evil notion of “sacrifice for the greater good”, which actually originated with the pagans. It’s evil disguised as compassion. It’s all a means of control.

            The way I see it, if I have to make sacrifices for the greater good, then the “greater good” is a failure that doesn’t deserve my sacrifice.

          4. Weary Traveler

            Agreed, there is no such thing as the “greater good.” As the article states, it is always about control, and by those who do not have our best interests in mind.

          5. Weary Traveler

            As you know, that phrase makes my BP shoot up every time I come across it.

    2. Proud Conservative Mom

      Just checked this out.

      This was about control.
      We knew this.

      Covid was the Trojan Horse for Marxism.
      This was about control and taking away our autonomy over our own bodies.

      The insanity is that there was no data for a while.
      Covid came out of nowhere.

      To quote Dr. Kimberly Schottland: “The only Covid science is that there is no science.”

      She told me that when I contracted the Delta Variant.

      She further added that anyone who tells me otherwise is lying to me.

      What she DID have a track record for was the tremendous success of Dr.
      Zelenko’s protocol.

      She was very against the jabs and the lockdowns as well.

    The Sovereignty Movement held another Sovereignty tour, this time in honor of Jerusalem Liberation Day. The tour was led by the director of the movement If I Forget thee, Haim Silberstein, and the purpose was to become familiar with the unique challenges faced by Israel’s capital along with possible solutions and ways to implement them.

    The tour included a number of observation points and strategic sites that tell the story of the city since the liberation of its eastern and northern parts in the Six Day War 56 years ago. A view from these points reveals in depth, the magnitude of the miracle that took place with the unification of the city and the liberation of the heart of the Land, Judea and Samaria and the Jordan Valley.

    Silberstein presented to the participants of the tour the complex demographic balance of Jerusalem, as well as the dramatic implications expected to arise with the continual rise in the Arab population of Jerusalem. This rise is turning the trepidation over an Arab majority in the city council or even an Arab mayor in Israel’s capital into a real and worrying possibility.

    The data shows that the demographic ratio between Jews and Arabs is currently about 60 percent Jews versus 40 percent Arabs, while in the past the ratio was 70 percent versus 30 percent Arabs. The main reason that leads to the alarming change is emigration of about 7000 people from among the Jewish population who leave the city every year due to lack of supply of apartments for living in the city and lack of employment. An answer to the housing crisis could come in the construction of about 6000 additional housing units every year.

    The participants were also exposed to the concerning phenomenon of neglect by Israeli authorities of dealing with illegal Arab building, estimated at tens of thousands of housing units and worsens the lack of governance in the city in various ways.

    From the various outlooks visited by the group it was easily possible to see the territorial contiguity that the Arabs are creating from Ramallah to Beit Lehem through Jerusalem’s east. A contiguity that is part of the organized and orchestrated plan by PLO officials, which at least as of now, goes unanswered in any significant way by the Israeli government. Silberstein defines this trend as a demographic Trojan horse of Arab building in the heart of Jerusalem.
    In response to the increasing demographic concern Silberstein presented the Greater Jerusalem plan, which expands the municipal borders of Jerusalem in all directions and allows the establishment of more Jewish neighborhoods, more industrial and tourism parks for the capital and adds hundreds of thousands of Jewish residents to Jerusalem.

    When the group arrived at Atarot, Silberstein also presented his concept how to deal with the village of Kafar Aqab and the Shuafat refugee camp, which today, are included within Jerusalem’s municipal jurisdiction, although the security fence leaves the village of Aqab outside of Jerusalem itself.
    In each of these neighborhoods live over seventy thousand Arabs who live in illegal construction and the law is not enforced against them. This is while in the past only a few thousand Arabs lived in each of them.

    In his opinion, it is appropriate to check the possibility for them to have an independent Arab municipal authority under Israeli sovereignty, which would help to preserve the Jewish majority in Jerusalem.

    In contrast, the participants also met with the Deputy Mayor of Jerusalem Aryeh King, who presented a different concept of how to deal with Aqab and Shuafat. In his opinion, bringing these areas outside Jerusalem’s borders would set a dangerous precedent for the future. And this is besides the possibility that if a leftist government arises in the future, it might view this step of separation as a basis for transferring these two areas and their residents to the control of the Palestinian Authority, which would be a de facto division of Jerusalem, a move that Silverstein also strongly opposes.

    King also warned against the possibility where the very existence of a plan to transfer territory to the PA would cause the Arabs of Aqab and Shuafat to search for and find opportunities to move to the western neighborhoods of Jerusalem, as has already happened in the past on a smaller scale with Arabs preferring to be under Israeli sovereignty rather than under the PA.
    King and Silberstein agreed that in order to protect Jerusalem and keep its Jewish majority, one must expand Jerusalem’ borders as soon as possible and include within it hundreds of thousands of more Jews. Both also agreed that one needs to build many more Jewish neighborhoods.

    Silberstein places special emphasis on the importance of establishing the planned Jewish neighborhood in Atarot, whether for demographic reasons, because of the additional 9000 housing units, to increase the governance and expand the border of Jerusalem northward or the historical reason, by returning a Jewish presence to a place that was acquired by Jews and was inhabited by Jews.

    As we know, the new neighborhood was approved by a local committee of the City of Jerusalem, was transferred to a district committee and “got stuck” there due to an environmental quality review that had not yet been completed. The practice by which a review can exist concurrently with approval of the neighborhood, was not carried out. It is thought, by various elements in the Jerusalem municipality, to be a result of political considerations at the time when Tamar Zandberg, then Head of the Meretz Party, served as Minister of Environmental Protection. Now, says Silberstein, the expectation is that Minister Idit Silman will approve the review and will allow building of the neighborhood to proceed.

    Silberstein also told of the intention to turn the terminal building of the airport in Atarot to a museum for civil aviation and the neighborhood’s heritage and its past.

    During the tour, the participants went to Beit Orot Yeshiva, where they met the Head of the Yeshiva, Rabbi Chen Halamish, who spoke about the place’s past, about establishing the neighborhood and the yeshiva and about the importance of the continuing struggle to redeem and build Jerusalem in a practical way.

    Another important matter that Silberstein views as critical is the matter of international involvement in Jerusalem’s doings. Hostile elements such as the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, Fatah and others along with Jordanian, Turkish and other governmental elements each do as much as they can to increase their presence in Israel’s capital using hundreds of NGOs that undermine Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem and seek to provide alternative services to the city’s Arabs in the areas of culture, education, welfare, tourism, etc. And among these NGOs there are sometimes terrorists with Jewish blood on their hands.

    The Sovereignty Movement summarizes this latest tour too with mixed feelings. “The challenges involved in Israeli sovereignty over its eternal capital are increasing, but tours of this type increase Jewish consciousness of the need to strengthen governance and sovereignty in Jerusalem. Our movement will continue to promote in every possible way, whether through hasbara on the Israeli street or working with decision-makers, the vision of Greater Jerusalem, to lead to the desired change in the capital of Israel.

    1. Proud Conservative Mom

      I have many thoughts on the matter.

      In summation: The former Leftist government turned a blind eye to the illegal building by the Arabs.
      Moreover, the Leftists curtailed the amount that the Jews were allowed to build.
      That created a terrible infiltration of Arabs brazenly being domiciled in Yerushalayim and reduced the amount of Jews being allowed to reside there.

      The Arabs must not be allowed to have even close to a majority in Yerushalayim.
      That would make a divided Yerushalayim Heaven forbid, closer to a reality.

      1. bill smith

        It’s not even just the former government, it’s the unelected leftists bureaucrats in all the governments, past and present. They cannot get elected, so the implement their policies is an underhanded manner. This is why judicial reform is so important.

        1. Proud Conservative Mom

          Most definitely.

          There is tremendous infiltration by those who cannot get elected.
          The Left is relentless and will always continue to create loopholes.

          This is why the Leftists are fighting tooth and nail to attempt to prevent judicial reform from transpiring.
          The judicial reform would prevent this from occuring.

          HP is pretty confident that it will happen.
          I really hope he’s right.

            Radiation, chemotherapy, and surgeries that can remove localized cancer.

            Too little, considering the amount of research that they’ve been allegedly doing for years.

            Think of how much money would be lost if a cure for cancer would be discovered?
            For starters, no more cancer research.

            That would take away big salaries from quite a few people.

    New – Russia says intercepted two US military jets over Baltic

    Russia said Tuesday it had scrambled an Su-27 fighter jet to “prevent violations of the state border” by two US Air Force strategic bombers flying over the Baltic Sea.

    “After removing the foreign military aircraft from the Russian state border, the Russian fighter went back to its air base,” the Russian defence ministry said.

    The two aircraft were B-1 strategic bomber belonging to the US Air Force.

    The army prevented the violation of the border, according to the statement.

    The ministry added, “the flight of the Russian fighter was carried out in strict accordance with international rules for the use of airspace.”

      Roger Waters sparks backlash after comparing Anne Frank to Abu Akleh

      Former Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters, known for his vocal anti-Israel campaign, is facing criticism after images from his last week’s show in Berlin emerged online.

      During the show, the names Anne Frank and Shireen Abu Akleh were projected side by side, apparently drawing an equivalence between the teenage Holocaust victim and the Palestinian journalist who was accidentally shot dead while covering Israel’s operation in the West Bank last year.

      The Israeli Foreign Ministry – “Good morning to everyone but Roger Waters who spent the evening in Berlin (Yes Berlin) desecrating the memory of Anne Frank and the 6 million Jews murdered in the Holocaust,” the Foreign Ministry’s tweet said.”

    The non-profit’s latest Form 990 shows that a loss of just over $961,000 was logged on a securities sale of $172,000. The disclosures suggest a year of missteps for the foundation, as well as a dramatic drop in donations.

    Iranian official threatens ‘no red lines’ if Israel attacks nuclear sites

    A Warning to Those Who Seek Power

    Very good question here… What is power exactly?

    “You don’t use power. Power uses you.”

    “People express power to other people. Or inflict it upon them. Or submit to it. It certainly appears that power is the thing exchanged, with humans as the actors. “

    Not that my opinion is worth much, but the way I see it, we do have power, but surrender it to other people, ideas, institutions or even things, and it is really our own power being used against us to oppress us.

    What “power” would any of these people or institutions really have if enough of us just said “no” and held our ground? None. The whole thing would collapse.

    I know I am not interested in power, but empowerment to live my own best life possible. None of that has to do with prestige, or getting off on bending others to my will.

      I think so too. I know I say “Asperger’s” a lot thanks to the blank stares and how cold and distant so many people are. Yes, it’s mostly my friend Carolyn’s description of the zombie-like behavior of so many people. I repeat it so much because it perfectly applies to their zombie-like behavior and their disconnect from reality.

      But she is probably more right on than either of us might now. I bet a big reason so many people exhibit signs of being on the Asperger’s spectrum has a lot to do with vaccine side-effects. I know another friend of mine who works in the medical field is very certain that is what is behind a lot of it.

      On that same note, it is very interesting, to say the least, that there seems to have been a bit of an increase of autism in children since vaccines were pushed. And there are cases of children having autism as a side effect. There is a man in my neighborhood who has that very issue with his son, who is my age, and can never take care of himself. Hence, his adult son will never be able to live a normal life, and give him grandchildren.

      The worst part is, this guy knows one of the vaccines he gave his son caused his son’s autism, and he still got the COVID jab, made his son get it, and supported the mandates. So much so, he said awful things about the Trucker convoy in Canada. These are the kinds of friggin ding-dongs I have been sentenced to live around for some stupid reason. It would be much easier deal with if I could just take a bat to these peoples stupid f***ing faces without going to jail.

      But unfortunately, stupid people get to have rights they don’t deserve. What they DO deserve, is to have every single bone in their bodies broken in several places and be denied any kind of medical treatment.

    Hat tip my sister Chaya

    On February 10, 1962, the world-famous boxer
     Muhammad Ali was “knocked down” for the first time in his career (- when one receives a blow, which knocks him down, and he has ten seconds to return to the match, and if not – he loses). The referee knelt down next to the fallen Ali and started counting backward: 10, 9, 8… Despite the blow and pain, Ali gathered his strength and said to himself:
    *”The floor is no place for a champion.”*
    He got up and delivered such a blow to Sonny Banks, his opponent, that I think he regretted knocking Ali down.
    That day Ali proved to himself and the world that
    *It is not the fall that defines you but how you rebound.*
    I’m not a boxer, but we occasionally get a “punch” that knocks us down; the question is: what is your comeback?

    We have arrived at the most crucial day in human history.
    The day the Creator of the world revealed himself to the people of Israel at Mount Sinai and gave them the Torah.
    An event unlike any before and which has not been since.
    *This is Shavuot.*
    Seven weeks following the exodus from Egypt, the people of Israel ascended to the highest spiritual peak.
     The lesson you must learn from this is that no matter what you’ve been through – Egypt, slavery, or descending to the lowest place spiritually – you can break free! And with hard work, you can reach the loftiest places in the world. It is, for this reason, the book of Ruth is read on Shavuot.
    Ruth was a convert with no lineage or prestigious education, and despite that, she was privileged to marry the greatest of the generation at that time – Boaz and be the grandmother of King David. 
    *The past will not define the outcome. It is the actions you take in the present that will shape the future.*

    In this week’s parashah, it says, “Carry up the head of the sons of Gershon and others” (Bamadbar 4:22). “Carry from the verb “lift up.”
    Raise your head and remember: my friend, you are a champion,
    And *”Champions don’t stay on the floor.”*
    May we be blessed with a remarkable renewal of Shavuot as one people, with one heart, with one Torah.
    Chag Sameach 
    Shabbat Shalom

    My Parents Brainwashed Me

    The first annual Bronx Youth Poetry Slam was held in May 2013 at the Kingsbridge Library in the Bronx, NY. When a young Jewish boy, Ethan Metzger, stood to recite his poetry titled, “My Parents Brainwashed Me,” no one expected the words that came out of his mouth. The video of his poem went viral within days. Ethan’s poem captures why G-d wanted the youth as the guarantors for Torah:

    One day I was in school, in class,
    Explaining my Judaism
    When this person has the audacity to exclaim,
    “You know you’re only Jewish because your parents force you to be.
    I mean, it’s all fake. You don’t pray to God because you want to,
    You pray to God because your parents made you think you have to.
    You don’t keep any of the laws of your own free will,
    Your parents just made you feel guilty if you didn’t keep them.”

    My classmates smirk.

    “Your parents brainwashed you your whole life,
    Made you think you were doing God’s work,
    But they were just imposing restriction upon restriction;
    You don’t have any real conviction of your own.
    You don’t really know anything about anything.”

    A silence swept over the class and
    I could sense all my friends look at me as to how angry I am…

    The more I thought, the more I realized
    That this student actually had a very valid argument.
    I thought to myself,
    “You’re absolutely right. My parents did brainwash me.

    From the time I entered this world, my parents brainwashed me.
    As early as I can remember, my parents were brainwashing me
    To have respect for other people, for their belongings, for myself.

    When I was little, they corrupted me into thinking that I need to treat everyone else how I would want to be treated,

    No matter what. My parents programmed me to believe that I should stand up for someone if that person were being picked on and that I shouldn’t be a bystander if
    I could stop bullying from taking place.

    My parents brainwashed me?

    Yeah. My father twisted my infant brain in such a horrific way
    That he made me value my integrity, and
    To make matters even worse,
    He led by example.
    And my mom? She incessantly told me as a child
    Again and again and again to ‘do the best you can; ’And that idea has become so ingrained in my mind.

    That I don’t define success as whether I get an ‘A’, but whether I gave it my all.

    My parents perverted my way of thinking…
    They contaminated my childhood with models and actions about
    Love and Faith and Character, and
    Yes, Religion, too.

    And I’m sorry for you that your parents
    Really didn’t infect your DNA with any of these ideals.”

    But, I didn’t say any of that.
    Because my parents also polluted my conscience
    Into believing that I shouldn’t judge someone until I walked a mile in their shoes
    Which makes me think that God must run marathons each day.

    Quite frankly, I don’t have the stamina for that. But here’s what I did say, “You can call it brainwashing if you want. That’s fine.

    I call it: Teaching.

    (Hat tip Rabbi Y.Y. Jacobson)

    1. Weary Traveler

      I try to have empathy whenever possible, i.e., “walking a mile in someone’s shoes.” Which none of us can really truly do. Even if having the same experiences, we can only experience them as ourselves, and not the other person. Therefore, we can never experience and/or interpret the experience exactly the same as they do, even if the general consensus is the same = good or bad.

      However, with that said, if I were in the position of that Jewish boy in the story, I would not hold back, and would have given him that “what for”, and probably a little worse. Better to say it all aloud than internalize it. Regardless of the other kid’s story, even if a sad one, doesn’t give him the right to inflict his misery on to others.

      Like Savage would say when he would get carried away on a rant; “I better stop before I say something I really mean”. LOL

      As it is, the other kid already passed a judgement on the Jewish boy, and would be fully deserving of the verbal gut punch that could have been delivered.

      The problem with today’s world, is that not enough rotten people are made to feel rotten about themselves for being rotten. But good people get to be made to feel bad all the time. And that has to stop.

        “I try to have empathy whenever possible, i.e., “walking a mile in someone’s shoes.” Which none of us can really truly do.”

        The great Hillel the Elder said in Tractate Avos: “Don’t judge your friend until you have reached his place.”
        Absolutely, that’s always impossible to do for the very reason that you described.
        Hillel knew it!
        (All wisdom comes from Torah.)
        One can never have live someone else’s exact life.

        You would have definitely told his classmates off royally.

    Israeli forces arrest terrorist behind shooting attack on IDF soldiers

    The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) and the Shin Bet domestic security agency announced on Thursday that they had arrested the terrorist who carried out a shooting attack on IDF soldiers in September 2022.

    In a joint operation the Israeli forces detained Maher Aseid, a resident of the West Bank village of Wadi Burkin. According to Israeli intelligence, he “planned and carried out the shooting and attempted arson attack against a soldier bus in the Bekaa and Emekim region on September 4, 2022, along with his son (who was killed) and his nephew.” Six Israeli soldiers were wounded in the attack.

    Maher was arrested in the West Bank village of El Yamon, not far from Jenin, by the IDF soldiers and the Special Forces. He was handed over for further investigation by the Shin Bet.

    🚨New Explosive Report – How Google manipulates search to favor liberals and tip elections

    While the focus has been on Twitter and Facebook’s censorship and liberal bias, the worst Big Tech culprit of all has been getting a free pass — and now it’s coming for our children.

    That’s the warning from research psychologist Dr. Robert Epstein, a Californian Democrat with a Harvard Ph.D, who has spent the last decade monitoring Google’s manipulation of newsfeeds, search results and YouTube suggestions.

    Epstein’s research shows that Google has the power to change minds and move elections to suit its liberal corporate worldview.

    Shifting 6 million votes

    You thought Twitter and Facebook censoring The Post’s Hunter Biden laptop stories was bad?

    How about 6 million votes shifted to Joe Biden by Google in the 2020 election by manipulating what we read and see online?

    That’s the electoral impact Epstein, 69, claims Google secretly had in 2020, using biased algorithms which skewed search results towards positive links for Biden and negative links for Trump, as well as Get Out The Vote messaging on Google’s home page targeted primarily at Democrat voters.

    Preliminary results from Epstein’s new project, monitoring how Google’s massive psy-op is targeting children through YouTube and other products, show liberal bias is even more pervasive.

    🚨Just In – Target loses $9B in week following boycott calls over LGBTQ-friendly kids clothing

    Target has lost $9 billion in market value since angry social media users called for a boycott of the Minneapolis-based retailer over its rollout of the “PRIDE” collection featuring LGBTQ-friendly clothing for children.

    A week ago Wednesday before the controversy erupted, Target’s stock closed at $160.96 a share, giving the big-box chain a market capitalization of $74.3 billion.

    As of early trading on Thursday, however, shares of the company were trading off 1% at $141.76 — capping a weeklong tumble that has shrunk the “cheap chic” discount retailer’s value to $65.3 billion.

    That amounts to a 12% drop that has shaved a whopping $9 billion off the company’s market capitalization.

      They are all such scammers. And that’s even the ones who bother to show up to work at all, and aren’t out on some BS “stress leave.” Take their jobs, seize their pensions and every dollar they grifted putting them out in the street, and use that to start paying down the deficit with the savings.

      They act like a government shutdown is the end of the world. We have had so many of them already, and they had zero effect on life.

          Chip Roy’s closing statement perfectly summarizes why we were never supposed to have professional career politicians in the first place.

          They were supposed to be just private citizens performing a civic duty, and would have to go out and live under the very policies they created without exemption.

          This is a point that is brought up all the time on that show I watch, California Insiders, as to how we have such a tone deaf legislature. But it’s worse than that, because it isn’t just that they are not negatively impacted by their own policies, but actually benefit from them.

    Associated Press surreptitiously drops claim about ‘violent confrontations’ over Target Pride merch

    What I am seeing here is just how corrupt and deep state Corporate America really is.

    They are trying to influence the culture, to influence politics to maintain the status quo that has allowed them to fleece and rig the system for years. It’s no accident that companies got more “woke” right after Occupy Wall Street, and how quickly that fizzled out after. The more woke the company, the more crooked. They would rather go down with the sinking ship, apparently.

    Not that we should ever forgive them if they ever dropped the woke crap.

      Trump is now the racist? How is that?

      If anyone is killing Ukrainians, it is that androgynous leather queen, Zelensky. There is only one reason Biden protects that guy by giving him our money and that is to protect his money laundering operation and his crackhead son. Meanwhile, our own veterans are living on the street and Americans are getting poorer funding Zelensky’s opulent lifestyle so Joe and Hunter can stay out of Gitmo.

      The ones who support this stupid war are the ones who should pay for it. And through the nose like the rest of us are.

      As for myself, I only wish I could personally hand Zelensky over to Putin myself, which ultimately would lead to Joe Biden and his inbred white trash family, and collect a nice big reward that I could comfortably retire on, and put an end to all this bullshit.

    The Best Life Lesson for a Teen Is a Job

    As much as I hate the work world, and not because I hate work, but because I hate how our government and their toadies in Corporate America have done everything possible to make working for a living both thankless and soul crushing, having a job is one of the best things young people can do because earning a living is empowering.

    I would even argue that instead of going straight to college right after high school, that spending two to four years in the workplace would do them a lot of good. Not only would they learn the value of a dollar, but would be so much less susceptible to the BS coming from leftist professors should they still decide on college after that.

    Fewer probably would decide on college, which would be great because ultimately the cost of tuition would go down and Bachelor’s Degree would be worth something again instead of just being the new HS diploma.

        That’s true going back to its founding. Its form of government was one that has never been tried, even though it is technically a republic. It is the only government that was designed with a bottom up approach rather than the conventional top down approach.

            I have been a Shriner for over 15 years, it is mostly a public service organization and a way for some husbands to get away from their wives for debauchery.

            There are co-organizations that women belong to, definitely NOT a SF, our organization has it’s own tavern that is a popular place for all, shriner and non shriner alike.

            The shriners have conventions that are “interesting ” to say the least.

            I became a member for the professional connections and I like the public service part; however, it has many womanizers and those with low moral value.

          5. Weary Traveler

            Definitely not my cup of tea.

            I did briefly belong to a organization once for professionals. No membership fees, and everyone just met up once a month at a local watering hole in the Folsom Gulch area of South of Market = SoMa. We just ordered whatever food or drinks we wanted, paid our own tabs, and just talked shop.

            Sounded okay, and I went to a few meetings. I was introduced to it by a lady that worked in the same building I did, as her husband was the organizer. They were mostly developers and software engineers, but really wanted artists like myself that use compositing and animation software for collaboration. Sounded perfect.

            However, the sad reality is that designers and developers rarely ever speak the same language so there was a huge irreconcilable disconnect already. But beyond a very small common interest, there was really no there there. There just wasn’t enough in common for me to make any kind of connection, professional or otherwise. No one seemed to have any interest in much of anything other than talking code. After four meetings of that, I just stopped going.

            All in all, I would rather hang around those geeks than the people you just described.

          6. Sapper 9

            It isn’t exactly professional organization, but, members from various fields look after each other. Lol

          7. Weary Traveler

            They usually do. Unfortunately for me, I have never done well with any type of group or organization, so I was never able to make any real connections that could ever be of any type of service to me later on.

            And that is in spite of half the groups I ever joined being professionally oriented.

            The one I enjoyed the most was a local Photoshop group. It was cool because they had an arrangement with Adobe, so we did get to see new product launches, and had the meetings at Adobe’s SF HQ, and they provided free beverages and pizza.

            That is accurate, however, I have managed to convert the thinking of a few and I am perceptive enough to avoid those that a a waste of time.

    Trump’s Freedom Cities and American Greatness
    A Positive Vision For American Ingenuity In An Age Of Stagnation

    “Perhaps the greatest plague affecting America right now is a crisis of stagnation, which pervades nearly every aspect of modern life: as seen in the diverse arenas of politics and technology to economics and culture to the general malaise of the country at large.”

    Glad I am not the only one who has noticed this. It’s like the Aspies have taken over the world like the aliens in the movie, They Live. Seems to me there has been an ongoing war against nuance, beauty and joy, and that only the bland, boring and stupid is allowed to flourish.

    “In sharp contrast, the modern city is at best an extremely vulgar counterfeit of its classical alternative. To the extent it resembles the classical version at all, it may only be in name. This in large part goes to the semantic shift that has fundamentally transformed the underlying referent by which the term “city” is understood.

    Well put. It actually amazes me just how ugly, and therefore atomizing and soul crushing our cities are. And they shouldn’t be, and don’t have to be. Around my area, it doesn’t get any better when you leave the immediate Bay Area going further inland. Just worse with those GAWD awful cookie-cutter homes and strip malls with the same corporate conglomerates in them. And that is on top of the hellish climate you encounter on the other side of the hills going in to the East Bay Valleys, or worse the Central Valley beyond that. It’s enough to make me pray to G-d for another 1906 to put it all out of its misery and mine.

    “The proposal by Trump, however, would seem to draw from the best of America’s former spirit of competitive ingenuity, and thus would likely invoke those model cases aforementioned. For that reason, the Freedom Cities stand fundamentally at odds with the current philosophy of managed decline that typifies cities throughout the Western world. One can only begin to imagine the possibilities for a city spared of the stultifying bureaucratic and regulatory largesse that now makes building another Trump Tower, let alone another Manhattan, impossible. If the spirit of American innovation were allowed to operate unencumbered in the sorts of regulatory-free citadels envisioned by Trump’s program, the possibilities of what might develop are limited only by the powers of man’s imagination.”

    This touches on another thought I have almost every day and everywhere I go; which is what our cities, and even towns, could be without the Kafkaesque Bureaucracies standing in the way making what could be a paradise in to the dystopias we are subjected to everyday.

    “Regrettably, the destruction of the modern city is as much by intentional design as it is due to administrative incompetence.”

    More like administrative MALICE*. As I keep saying, callng these people stupid, naive, or even incompetent, is giving them a benefit of the doubt that they clearly do not deserve. Call them what they actually are, which is evil, malevolent, psychotic, sadistic, sociopaths. Once we start calling them what they are, we can finally start dealing with them accordingly. Enough of this “turning the other cheek” nonsense.

    “There is no fundamental law in nature that says we must resign ourselves to forever decline.”

    THANK YOU!! I am so glad I am not the only one saying this. I am glad that I am not alone in that sentiment.

    All in all…. This is Trump’s alternative vision to the control freaks at the WEF and their “15 Minute Cities.” Without a doubt, I would much rather live in a “Freedom City” than a “15 Minute City”. But, personally, I do not want to live in either or.

    Trump has proposed using federal lands to build these Freedom Cities, whereas the WEF sociopath scum want to transform our existing cities to 15 Minute Cities. I would say, take from the WEF and take our cities and metro regions back from these genetically inferior little worms, and just send the globalists to Gitmo where they belong. We can rip down the ugly post-modern structures they built, and replace them with great structures. And even better, we can seize all the assets of the globalists to help pay for it, financing the visions of real creators and visionaries who were kept out by all the treasonous sociopaths and the Aspies in Corporate America.

  53. Weary Traveler

    It’s not a death of patriotism, but the death of globalism. Most of us are sick to death of being worked stupid to take care of the world while our own quality of life suffers.

And we are all sick and tired of the gaslighting.

    What the Bud Light Fiasco Reveals about the Ruling Class

    This article raises many good points, but here are some that I think are missing. It all boils down to hatred toward us, the so-called “unwashed masses.”

    First and foremost, the more “woke” the company, the more corrupt it is. Most of this all started during the Occupy Wall Street movement from over a decade ago. The Corporations quickly learned that if they had a good “social credit score”, the stupid mobs wouldn’t look in to their corrupt and illegal business practices. Does anyone really believe that Bill Gates or Warren Buffet are humanitarians because they are labeled as philanthropists?

    Anyone who believes that they are at worst, just well meaning morons, seriously needs to have their heads examined. Probably even check their family tree for any possible inbreeding. They are both liars and thieves who benefited benefited from corrupt system, and still do, and therefore continue only to fight to protect that corrupt system while gaslighting the rest of us pretending to be such humanitarians.

    That’s the first part of this. The second part, they are more than happy to employ these arrogant privleged little college girls on Prozac, like that now former Marketing Exec at TRANheuser Busch, who deserves to be canceled along with Mulvaney, is because they share Corporate America’s hatred for the rest of us. They do this to rub it in our faces. Much like why Brandon hired that circus freak, Sam Brinton, or why they install these idiots in to office like Fuaxcahontas, AOC and Hank Williams in to elected office, is because they figure, if we will listen to these idiots and put up with them, we’ll put up with anything and they can abuse us as much as they like. And if we don’t, they will scream every made up “ism” and “phobe” they can think of, while calling us the “domestic terrorists.”

    They are not “elites” by any means, just elitist. They are no different than an abusive spouse = just petty and hateful genetic defects.

    1. John Gillis

      No thanks is a perfectly legitimate answer. At least they resonded. Don’t know what this guy wants. This guy was being the asshole.

      1. Weary Traveler

        Professionalism. An abrupt “no thanks” is such an Asperger’s answer, and/or a passive aggressive F-U.

        Even if the other guy were to say “I don’t want to be associated with your program because it is too controversial” is at least letting the other person know where you stand.

        1. george linker

          I don’t see a no thanks as anything other than a response. I see no agression in a simple answer. The person responded. They could have said nothing and never responded.

          1. Weary Traveler

            It’s an appropriate response if you are telling a JW to go away. Not in the professional world.

          3. Weary Traveler

            The professional world has nothing to do with feelings as it does professional relationships. And regardless of industry, each is smaller than you might think, so it is also abut reputation. Reciprocity is key for that reason.

            For certain it’s about reciprocity.
            Moreover, treat someone else the way you would want to be treated.

            It is not that difficult to do the right thing — especially in this case.

            I love the A-1 response! 👏👏👏

          5. Weary Traveler

            There was an article I was reading years ago from a radio industry publication and it was about getting through the massive layoffs in the industry and made a point very similar to this.

            It’s nice to have a “Rolodex” full of contacts, but wont do you much good if they only hear from you when you want something. It’s a good way to get what we nowadays called “ghosted.”

            Instead you want to maintain those relationships, check in on them and even invite them to lunch when you don’t need something. People are more likely to come through for you then.

          6. Proud Conservative Mom

            Exactly, it’s not how many names of contacts one has.
            It’s about who can be counted on to come through for you.

            Business relationships need to be nurtured.
            It’s very critical.

          7. george linker

            Polite would be to have never ever metioned it at all in a podcast. The man was attempting to manipulate with psychology, albiet really bad psychology.

          8. george linker

            What I see is a psychologist attempting to place shame on someone for not accpeting his invitation. He is being using his podcast to be rude to someone who turned him down. He even goes on about spending 25 minutes of his day working up the request.

          9. Weary Traveler

            If you are seeing that, then you are seeing it because you want to see it.

            If he were really trying to “shame” the guy, he would have mentioned the name, which he didn’t. As that would not be very professional. He used this as an example of a lack of courtesy that is become all too common.

            As PCM and I were discussing below, when a professional reaches out to another professional, time is money. Not taking the time to properly reciprocate, he is saying that Professor Saad’s time is worth less than his. It is essentially giving him the middle finger.

            The entire point of the video is to illustrate how to deal with people who do not reciprocate respect you have clearly shown it to them.

          10. george linker

            Actually there was no need to metion his name, everyone involved already knew what is was. Some people do not have the time to spend on long answers. In fact, I view long answers as a deception. Saad chose to use as much time as he did and does not have the right to expect the same in return. No person is obligated to long responses that are nothing more the excuses. I do not need someone’s excuse for turning me down. A simple no thanks suffices.

          11. Proud Conservative Mom

            Long answers as a deception?
            To what extent?
            We’re not talking about writing a dissertation.

            As busy as I have been professionally, I always took a few extra minutes of my time to respond accordingly.

            It engenders further respect and future courtesy, even though I do it because I was raised this way.

            Please don’t take it as a personal attack.
            I don’t conduct myself in that manner.

          12. Weary Traveler

            Long answers? I really don’t think you understand what is happening. We are not talking about deciding on a grant proposal here, or writing another book like War and Peace.

            When you are doing professional correspondence, time is money. What we are talking about is proper communication. Even in email format, you are not writing like you would in a discussion forum like this where you bang out a few paragraphs in a few minutes as it is just casual conversation.

            The time spent writing the correspondence is not just on typing, but editing, reviewing sentence structure, messages conveyed, and who your audience is and how you want them to perceive it, and more importantly, how you want them to perceive you.

            So yes, one can easily spend a half hour writing a letter that has no more than three paragraphs.

          13. george linker

            Anyone writing books is long winded saying very little. The man is simply projecting his desire onto someone else. I suspect that any answer would have been derided other than accpetance.

          14. Weary Traveler

            “Anyone writing books is long winded saying very little. “

            Surely that is some figure of speech, because I can’t see you arguing that books are bad.

            You are assuming too much, and I suspect, by some of your other responses, simply because you do not like the man’s profession.

          15. george linker

            Got nothing to do with his profession. He could have nerver metioned the encounter and just let it blow by. Instead he chose to deride the person. Most people who write books run out of words on the first page of each chapter. Good writers know shorter is better


            Universities teach against wordieness


          16. Weary Traveler

            Yes, I have gone to college and have written college papers, so you are not telling me anything I do not already how. We are talking about what was roughly — on average — three paragraphs here.

            Let’s put it another way; if you apply for a job you send a cover letter with your resume. You do not write “please hire me”, you tell them something about yourself. You extrapolate further on your experience and skill set, and further highlight any accomplishments explaining why you think you are a good fit for the job.

            A situation like this is no different. He researched the person, made some notes, and introduced himself, and explained how he thought the interview could be mutually beneficial. Just as any broadcasting professional would when reaching out to a potential guest to book for an on-air interview.

          17. george linker

            And then the man tried to to shame the one who turned him down. He was the one who was mistreating people.

          18. Weary Traveler

            Correction; he pointed out the other guy’s unprofessionalism, and used it as an example of of the kind of disrespect that should not be tolerated, and how to give it back to those people with style.

            The other guy should be ashamed of himself.

          19. george linker

            The guy doing the podcast is the one who should be ashamed of his actions. He attempted to shame the guy into the show. The man has a background in psychology. Guess we can all see why the other guy said no thanks. When proper answers are called disrespect something is bad wrong.

            Saad said his unapologetic positions regularly result in anger and threats from all manner of irate activists, some of whom he dubs the “tofu Taliban,” but he never lets it sway his approach.

            “There are no sacred cows for me,” he said. “I will go after any ideology that I think is nonsensical.”

            The available information says that gad saad is a opinionated jerk.


          20. Weary Traveler

            “Saad said his unapologetic positions regularly result in anger and threats from all manner of irate activists, some of whom he dubs the “tofu Taliban,” but he never lets it sway his approach.

            “There are no sacred cows for me,” he said. “I will go after any ideology that I think is nonsensical.””

            I would call that a good thing. Sounds like the complaint all the TDS sufferers share about Trump = “He’s not very presidential.” Who cares? He gets results, and pisses off the real jerks who have been making all of our lives too miserable for too long.

            I’ve been called an “opinionated jerk” and far worse myself for speaking truth to power. It’ “opinionated jerks” like myself and Professor Saad that are what stands between the rest of us and full blown totalitarianism. You’re welcome.

            If this is your “gotcha” then you got nothing on the guy.

            Like I said, you are more triggered by his profession than anything else.

          21. george linker

            The guy is an asshole and brags about it, he has a reputation. All he was doing was trying to force someone onto his his show.

          22. Weary Traveler

            No, there was no trying to force anyone on his show. There is a polite/professional way to decline an invitation. The other guy chose the Asperger’ way, which IS the asshole way. And he got punked for it. Good for Gad Saad.

          23. george linker

            You and me are as different as night and day with this event. The talk show host was the asshole.

          24. Weary Traveler

            “Anyone writing books is long winded saying very little. “

            Surely that is some figure of speech, because I can’t see you arguing that books are bad.

            You are assuming too much, and I suspect, by some of your other responses, simply because you do not like the man’s profession.

            All I saw was the man whinning about someone else’s resonse like a little child who had is sucker taken away.

          1. Weary Traveler

            And that’s exactly it. In the professional world, time is money. So if some takes the time to reach out to you, that is a cost to them.

      2. Proud Conservative Mom

        As @dr_darko:disqus wrote precisely!
        That response was very disrespectful and unprofessional.

        ABSOLUTELY, I would only say “no thanks” to those like JWs or any other relentless missionaries.

        1. george linker

          I use no thanks all the time and never intend any disrespect. When one add thanks behind the word no they are being polite. The dictionarys show the following. The wrong people at my do I just shut the door.

          no thanks informal
          used to say politely that you do not want something

          A short way of saying “Thank you, but I’m not interested

          A polite refusal of something. (Despite being polite in form, it can be used in an impolite manner.)

          thanks but no thanks

          used to say that you are grateful to someone for offering something but that you do not want to accept the offer

          1. Weary Traveler

            You are obviously not understanding the context here. “No thanks” is an appropriate response if say a coworker made popcorn, and offered you some, but you are not interested. Or you are walking through Costco, and a salesperson is offering to do a demonstration of a product being promoted that you are not interested in buying.

            It is appropriate in that type of casual setting. Not in a professional context like this.

          2. george linker

            I see no difference in settings. That is just people attempting to make mountains out of mole hills.

          3. Weary Traveler

            And you probably never will be able to understand the distinction either.

            By your own admission, you are unable to understand the context. You stated clearly that you see no difference. I have worked in enough professional settings, and had enough senior rolls in the workforce to know from experience.

            You can be very good at what you do, but attitude towards others also determines how far you go. One of the reasons there are extremely talented people out there, who struggle, or are out of work even under the best circumstances is because of bad attitudes like that towards others. And like I said earlier, each industry, no matter how many millions of people are employed in it, are much smaller than you realize.

            Think the rule of six degrees of separation. Word travels fast. If you are too difficult to work with, no one will want to work with you. Regardless of how talented you may be.

          4. george linker

            I don’t divide the world into one group over another. All are the same. None are more talented then another and they deserve no extra respect. The podcast guy is the one with a bad attitude. He could have never mentioned the event. He chose to put the person down.

          5. Weary Traveler

            Once again, you fail to grasp the point. No, not all are the same, and not everyone has the same level of “talent” in any profession, or at any skill or trade. I have actually been in the position where I have been involved in hiring decisions, and interviewing potential vendors. And I have also managed teams for projects.

            I can tell you from actual real world experience that not all are the same as you put it. Sorry, but no.

            We are not all equal, other than being created by G-d in His image.

            You apparently missed the reason that I even mentioned talent in the first place. Again, actually having been in a position to influence hiring decisions, and having trained many new hires in my professional life, I can tell you that attitude trumps talent every time.

          6. george linker

            All people are equal. From the dumbest to the most educated all are the same. The educated usually become more arrogant thinking themselves better and above others.

          7. Weary Traveler

            “From the dumbest to the most educated” by definition is not equal. Your closing statement actually made my point for me about how attitude trumps any skill or talent any day of the week.

          8. Proud Conservative Mom

            I would never do that professionally.
            I never have.
            This also applies to my family members.

            @dr_darko:disqus posted precisely what I would have added as well.
            He positively NAILED it.

            No thank you (for me it’s no thank you, not no thanks – albeit no thanks is acceptable), is what I say if someone offered to share a snack with me, make me a tea, etc.
            I also tend to add “that was very kind of you to think of me.”

            One never loses out by going the extra mile.
            (This is not a personal attack, Heaven forbid. I don’t do that.)
            It’s how I was raised.
            It’s that simple.

          9. george linker

            I don’t draw different responses for different actions. The same response is polite in any situation. I need to explain myself or my reasoning. The other person should simply accept it and move on.

      1. Weary Traveler

        This is the reason I love this guy. I like his “don’t turn the other cheek” attitude. Turning the other cheek is by default an endorsement and only encourages more of that kind of thing. If more people took his approach, we wouldn’t have so many people running around exhibiting symptoms of Asperger’s. Because the behavior would not be rewarded, and would make life more difficult for the people acting so cold and distant.

    How Lockdowns Bolstered an Industrial Cartel

    ” I’ve tended to think that this was all an outgrowth of disease panic and bad thinking. Well intentioned policy that went very badly. But what if it wasn’t? What if the whole point of the industrial segregation and cartel creation was to run a real-time test of the full vision of a corporatist state? It’s not a crazy speculation.”

    Indeed it is not crazy to speculate such. There was nothing “well intentioned” about any of it. All of it was malice of forethought. And his speculations only touch the tip of the iceberg. The rest of it was depopulation to kill off as many of us “useless eaters” as possible through deaths of despair. And death by a thousand cuts is the cruelest way to kill someone.

    And let’s not forget who coined that phrase “useless eaters” referring to all of us that weren’t good enough and think they know better than G-d. Henry Kissinger. And that good for nothing son of a bitch lived long enough to celebrate his 100th birthday? Can someone PLEASE explain that one to me?

    1. Proud Conservative Mom

      Indeed this was all malice aforethought!

      Naturally corporate America didn’t give a heck that small businesses were tanking.
      They were thrilled.

      It was simply impossible for most small businesses to survive because of the lockdowns.

      I remember @dump_boehner:disqus saying that he lost many thousands of dollars per month and had to fire most of his staff.

      Regarding your query about Kissinger, for anything that he did good (no matter how small), he was rewarded for it in this world.
      Hashem recompenses evil people in this world so that they can 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥in the next world for all eternity.

      Tehillim 92:8 “When the wicked flourish like grass, and all workers of violence blossom, only to be destroyed to eternity.”

      1. Weary Traveler

        Too much blood sweat, tears in vain with too many dreams dashed, and for what? If anyone is a “useless eater”, it is the Kissingers and Schwabs of the world.

        There is something terribly wrong with this picture.

        The only reason a business should lose money is providing a subpar service/product. That’s it. Not because of some elitist’s ego.

    2. Sapper 9

      The lockdowns created many billionaires, the riots and the lockdowns destroyed many small businesses and shifted their market share to the big competitors.

      The corporations that donated to BLM also benefited from the destruction caused by the BLM/ANTIFA communists violence in the streets; the government expanded it’s hold on the people and it’s operating budget during the lockdowns and the REPUBLICANS have agreed to fund the government at POST COVID levels and have even given the swamp an increase.

    WHO Power Grab – Totalitarian Proposals Run Roughshod Over Sovereignty

    Sweeping new powers could see the Gates- and China-funded organisation impose lockdowns, mandatory vaccine passports, quarantine and border closures on the UK, under pandemic treaty proposals.

    The move is an “evident” ambition “for the WHO to transition from an advisory organisation to a controlling international authority,” Tory MPs wrote in a letter.

    Other proposals would force the UK to set aside 5% of its health budget for another ‘virus outbreak,’ and would compel countries around the world to hand over vaccine recipes.

    DeSantis Says He Would Pardon Trump, J6ers as President If Found to Be Targets of Persecution

    Republican presidential candidate Ron DeSantis recently stated that he would be willing to pardon former President Donald Trump if an examination of the facts showed that Trump was a victim of political weaponization.

    DeSantis explained that upon assuming office, he would assemble a team tasked with reviewing potential cases for pardons. He made the remarks on the “The Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show.”

    The Florida governor stressed the importance of ensuring evenhanded justice, particularly in cases where similar actions by different individuals resulted in disparate treatment.
