Biden's White House continues to blatantly lie ... even about facts that are transparently FALSE to anyone with an IQ above 80.

They pushed out a Tweet on May 12th, stating how there was "no [COVID] vaccine available" until after Biden was sworn in as Resident.

https://twitter.com/WhiteHouse/status/1524868269148192779

The next day, they "corrected" their Tweet, but only after Twitter and the media blew up over such an obvious disinformation attempt -- saying whatever sounds good for Biden with no regard for the actual truth.

https://twitter.com/WhiteHouse/status/1525239715372359681

Given that they included that "non-factual factoid" in a Tweet that was clearly meant to praise the economic "growth" seen under Biden's watch, I think most people are smart enough to figure it out.

If they can't get the little things right, how can we trust them when they spout off statistics and results that contradict what we are seeing in our daily lives?




I'd give them the benefit of the doubt had these nuggets not already existed on Twitter which totally destroyed their narrative about vaccines.  BTW, Biden received not just the vaccine, but ALSO A BOOSTER PRIOR to his inauguration!

Apparently, there is enough baby formula to satisfy demand, but it's not available in the areas that need it most. 

No comment from the White House -- the same people who are busily sending billions of our dollars and weapons by the thousands to Ukraine.

Maybe this is Biden's way of taking a position on Roe v. Wade.  If you don't abort your baby, it'll starve to death.  Your "choice."

Political Discussion / It's Hogg Season ...
« on: April 04, 2022, 04:15:22 PM »
Couldn't decide if this belongs here, in Legal & Activism, or Drunken Posting,   :crazy:

David Hogg is at it again -- talking before realizing how stupid it sounds.

"If you need a license to kill deer why don't you need one to kill humans?"

The context of his post is the 25th state about to enact Constitutional Carry, where you can carry openly or concealed without a mandated training class and without a state-issued permit (license).

I have no words.  He's lost.

The Federal Elections Commission fined the Democrat National Committee and the Hillary Clinton Presidential Campaign for their failure to truthfully report the money they paid to Fusion GPS for opposition research.  That research was in the form of the Steele dossier which became the basis for the Russia-Collusion Hoax the FBI "investigated".

The DNC and Clinton's campaign tried to argue that the expenditures were indeed for "legal advice and services," because they paid the money to another law firm Perkins and Cole.  They tried to obscure the real reason for the payments -- opposition research -- by funneling the money through another law firm.  The FEC did not let them slide on that technicality.

The amounts of the fines were relatively small:  DNC owes $849,407.97, and Clinton's campaign owes $175,000 for a total of $1,024,407.97.

Size of the fine aside, I hope the government can leverage that FEC finding and make the DNC and Clinton repay the taxpayers for the Mueller Investigation and all the FBI crap that resulted in no "Russia Hoax" related charges.

Funny.  I Googled "FEC Russia Hoax", and not a single MSM organization showed up among the pages and pages of results.   :rofl:

Remove the "Russia Hoax" term, and replace it with "Fines Hillary Clinton," and the MSM starts to pop up, but not in large numbers.  They are framing this as a rules violation related to reporting the expenditures incorrectly.  They are trying to water down the fact these people PAID FOR LIES to smear Trump and started a witch hunt on our dime.

Resident Biden promised to nominate a Black Woman to the next Supreme Court vacancy.  Honoring his promise, he nominated Ketanji Brown Jackson.

When asked in the Senate hearing to define "woman", she said, "I can't."

If that's true, then how the hell did she even get the nomination?  Biden said he was nominating a WOMAN.  I guess she'll identify as one if she wants the job.

On a related tangent, by promising to nominate someone based on gender and skin color/race, he preemptively cast doubt on her qualifications to be on the court.  The same problem exists with any affirmative action program.  If someone is hired based on a demographics, it's assumed they may not have been qualified enough to win the job on their qualifications and experience.  The cloud of doubt exists, even if the person is the best qualified of all candidates.

Such a horrible thing to do to the more-qualified people who didn't fit the demographics, to the fully qualified candidates who get hired/nominated and happen to fit the desired demographics, and to the people following  these appointments and expect the process to be fair and legal.  It's illegal to discriminate based on race and gender.  Racial and gender preference IS discrimination against those who don't fit those categories.

The media is saying resisting the announcement of this nominee, which was based on her race and gender, somehow is "racist."

Unbelievable!  Pointing out a race-based nomination is racist!   :crazy: :crazy:

Off Topic / Be aware of what's happening in your neighborhood
« on: March 22, 2022, 07:55:34 PM »
Today, my neighbor caught me in front when I checked my mail.  He said he called the Cops to report suspicious people.  After he described what happened, two Cop cars rolled up and checked out the white van he reported the 3 masked individuals were focusing on.

I checked my video footage from the street, and here's what I saw:

A small black car with a sunroof approached and parked next to the house next to me ... left as I face the street.

3 people got out.  All wearing what I considered inappropriate attire for today -- long pants, long sleeves and/or jackets, and either ski masks or the balaclava style masks police and military sometimes wear.

They crossed the road and walked further down the street opposite side from my house.  My camera lost them past a tree that blocks its view, but the neighbor said they crossed the next intersection and were doing something around an older white work van parked there.

After a minute or so, video showed them all 3 running back to their car.  The driver took 3 reversals to complete a 3-point turn to go back the direction they came from when I first recorded them.

The whole thing took about 3 minutes from pulling up, parking, walking to the van, running back, and turning around to leave.

My cameras are in the 720 resolution range, so I can't get much detail on the car such as plates.  Just an older black sedan, probably a Nissan or Lexus.  Might have been lowered, too.  The three looked like males, all pretty lean, and looked rather young the way they moved and ran.  Not much chance of getting a better description from the video, but the neighbor told me they all 3 appeared Black.  One seemed like he might walk up the neighbor's driveway until he saw the 12-inch screwdriver he'd picked up.

Anyway, I'm checking my motion sensors more frequently when they notify me, and I'll be monitoring the road out front in case I see them again.

Stay frosty.   :geekdanc: :shaka:

I don't know how I missed the news, but I just saw today that Meat Loaf, the singer, passed away January 20th this year.  He was 74.

There was no cause of death included in the announcement, but his family posted later it was due to complications from COVID-19.

A very talented performer and artist.    :shaka:

Political Discussion / Resident Biden's 2nd State of the Union Address

Roman Catholic priest, the Rev. Andres Arango of Phoenix, baptized thousands of worshipers over 20 years using the same words spoken during the baptism. 

Now, the baptisms have been ruled invalid over the use of one word in place of another.

When baptizing someone, usually a baby or young child, the priest used the words, "We baptize you in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit."

In fact, the words he should have used are, "I baptize you ..."  The difference is minor, but the meaning is not.  "I" indicates that Jesus Christ is baptizing you.  Christ is the only person through which someone can be baptized.  Saying "We" changed the entire meaning and purpose of the baptism.

Now, all the baptisms he performed have been deemed to not be actual baptisms, and should be properly performed again to be valid in the eyes of the Church.

And I thought pronouns were only related to gender-diversity.

As a devotee to the art of making pancakes, as you might guess from my screen name, I started out in Boy Scouts and at home using Bisquick mix.  It was a versatile product used for pancakes, biscuits, and even Dutch Oven fruit cobbler recipes.

Later, I sampled some of the other pancake mixes from Aunt Jemima, Betty Crocker, etc.  I settled on Krusteaz, since it was easy, okay-tasting, and available at Costco and most other markets.

Today, I tried out a recipe I found online.  It claimed to be a copy-cat recipe for IHOP's pancakes.  After making sure I had fresh supplies of all the ingredients, I tried it out.  It takes an hour for the batter to rest in the fridge before cooking, so plan accordingly.

The result?  Fantastic!  I think I'll cut back a little on the sugar next time, but the texture, flavor and general appearance is from my memory pretty darn close to IHOP!

It's the second scratch recipe for pancakes I tried recently, and it's by far much better than the first.

Here's the link to the recipe.  If you like sugar, don't change it.  If you don't like an overly sweet pancake that adds extra sweetness on top of any syrup or other toppings you use, then I'd reduce the 1/4 Cup of sugar to maybe 50% to 75% of that much, plus or minus. 



I've made my own buttermilk in the past with vinegar and whole milk for things like crispy fried chicken strips, but this time I bought a quart of cultured buttermilk from Times.  The recipe for that is online at many sites.  Pretty basic, and you can can use vinegar or lime juice, maybe other additives to turn regular milk into buttermilk.  Since I I wanted everything to be according to the recipe as closely as possible before I start deviating, I went with store-bought this time.

By the way, I also read if you have a quart or less of cultured buttermilk, and you see that you'll need more than that, you can use that buttermilk to make more.  It takes about a day, so give it time.  Put a certain amount of buttermilk in a certain larger amount of whole milk.  In 24 hours, the cultures have created buttermilk from the regular milk.  Pretty cool! 

Let us know if you have a chance to try this, or of you have a secret family recipe you'd love to share with the Inter Webs! 

Aloha!

Off Topic / Super Bowl LVI
« on: February 11, 2022, 07:47:40 PM »
I just looked it up, and apparently Super Bowl LVI is this Sunday, Feb 13th.

Seems year after year, it get harder to remember we still have that thing happening.

Looks like the LA Rams and Cincinnati Bengals are playing. 

I noticed a very over-the-top production for a couple of ads on YT this week, so I assume they may be previews for Super Bowl Sunday ads?

The one with Scarlett Johansson for Amazon's Alexa is pretty funny.  The other with two women trying to best each other over things they bought like it was a poker tournament was just stupid.

Anyway, if you're interested in this event, thought I'd post a reminder and comment of some ads that I think might be related.

Ever since the players made the game political, I think a lot of fans just stopped caring.

Political Discussion / Best Movie Music
« on: January 05, 2022, 01:52:36 PM »
Sometimes, the best soundtracks are in movies which are ABOUT the music:

La Bamba
The Buddy Holly Story
That Thing You Do
Bohemian Rhapsody
Walk the Line
The Blues Brothers

Other movies are just not the same without the music that drives it:

Halloween
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
Star Wars
The Godfather
Raiders of the Lost Ark
Superman
Rocky
Jaws
Back to the Future


Then there are the musicals, some with original songs, and others that incorporate already popular songs:

Moulin Rouge
The Wedding Singer
All That Jazz (Roy Scheider)
Chicago
The Music Man
The Wizard of Oz
The Sound of Music
Singin' in the Rain
Grease
Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory

And, of course, there are the animated movies:

Frozen
The Little Mermaid
Moana
The Lion King
The Nightmare Before Christmas

Any additions, subtractions, other categories?

Thoughts and opinions on what you think are best or worst in these lists?

Someone mentioned recently that music is not a big part of his life.  I think whether it's movies, TV, commercials, radio ads, or celebratory events, music is what makes it special, and what will bring back memories when a song we hear reminds us of them.

I think music is a big part of our lives whether or not we appreciate it.

Last night, about 1 AM Kentucky time, a single storm generated tornadoes that touched down and traveled some 210 miles across 5 states.  Many other storms that were part of the same storm system generated tornadoes and high wind, creating damage in many parts of those states.

Joe Biden gave remarks this morning on the devastation and took questions from the press.  They took this opportunity to ask him about Climate Change.  Of course -- they would, wouldn't they?

Rescue and Aid efforts are still underway, and these asshats need to push a political agenda.  Never let a good crisis go to waste.

Our media is broken.

Biden uses tornado tragedy to push
climate agenda, suggests storms
are ‘consequence of the warming’


President Biden on Saturday addressed the fatal weather that ravaged parts of the South
and Midwest and used the tragedy to further his own beliefs on climate change.

While speaking to reporters and virtually assessing the tornado damage from Wilmington,
Delaware, Biden was asked whether he "could conclude that these storms and the intensity
have to do with climate change."

"All I know is that the intensity of the weather across the board has some impacts as a
consequence of the warming of the planet and climate change," Biden said. "The specific
impact on these specific storms, I can't say at this point."

"I'm going to be asking the EPA and others to take a look at that," Biden added. "The fact is
that we all know everything is more intense when the climate is warming. Everything. And
obviously it has some impact here, but I can't give you a quantitative read on that."

This case drives home the fact that there just aren't enough hate crimes being committed in the US to satisfy the Left.  They have to manufacture hate crimes in order to draw attention to the "problem" and themselves.  But, I digress...

Smollett was found guilty of the first 5 charges and not guilty of the sixth.
Quote
The 39-year-old "Empire" alum was charged with six counts of disorderly conduct related to
false statements to Chicago police officers in regard to a 2019 hate crime against himself. In
2019, he claimed that two men attacked him due to his skin color and sexual orientation.
Quote
Since being accused of staging the attack, Smollett has maintained his innocence and said
during his two-day testimony that "there was no hate crime hoax from my standpoint."

Prosecutors, however, argued that Smollett carried out a "dry run" of the attack the day before
it occurred in 2019.
Quote
The charge is a class 4 felony that carries a prison sentence of up to three years, but experts
have said if convicted, Smollett would likely be placed on probation and ordered to perform
community service.

We'll have to follow up with the sentencing after it's official.

White privilege?  More like "politically and celebrity connected" privilege.  Same thing that got the charges dropped and the records sealed the first time...
