Out walking today past a park pond, and here's the fire rescue people practicing pulling someone from the pond.
As the "victim" was wearing a full exposure suit, it was pretty clear it was an exercise.
On this date in 1845, Texas annexed the United States:
For their next trick, Texas will revive Louisiana borders to cover
the original area, and rename it Texas Republic. Consolidation with the
Republic of Dixie and the Republic of Roadrunner will follow.
Frontpagemag has a nice historical piece on the meme going around regarding Stalins quote about counting versus voting. Also contains a historical note that possibly explains the origin of Boris Badenov. A commenter is asking for a bumper sticker. O.K.
I have it on unimpeachable authority that the first thing President Biden will be signing will be an unconditional pardon for Ghislaine Maxwell.
The sigh of relief from Washington is expected to affect weather conditions as far away as South Carolina.
Mr. Biden will be told that the document is the lease agreement on the White House.
Sock-puppet-elect Biden says he'll reverse the Trump policies on immigration, by adding "guardrails". Presumably this means the 4-lane overpasses spanning the border wall will now include OSHA-approved guardrails to prevent any
unregistered democrats invading foreign infantry immigrants from falling off the edges and requiring Obamacare in the U.S.
Suggestion: He could avoid the bad publicity of ICE having to detain all those folks while paperwork is being processed by simply proposing legislation to grant statehood to all the Mexican states which would automatically make the entire population of Mexico eligible to vote. This would add some 120M new voters, and 32 new states, presumably all Democratic. Admittedly some are effectively run by violent drug cartels, but these would fit in nicely with Illinois which is run by Chicago gangs.
Epoch Times is reporting that the Chinese spat with Australia is having repercussions in the Chinese homeland as several cities in Chinese southern provinces are suffering from electricity shortages as a result. Of course the Chinese have alternative sources of energy but...
Zhang explained that the thermal power plants were lacking coal; hydroelectric power plants were facing low water levels; wind power plants could not operate fully due to frozen ice on the windmills; and solar power plants could not generate stable and sufficient power.
As a result, all buildings in Hunan had to set their heaters at 20°C (68°F) or lower, and elevators had to stop service. Streetlights were also cut off.
So the Green New Deal isn't working out exactly as advertised, eh? This explains the Chinese now importing coal from North Korea without even pretending that they're observing any sanctions on the country.
N.Y.Post has an article by a Yale prof speculating that once we get past the Chinky-Pox plague, the world can look forward to sex-crazed orgies and a period of wretched excesses. Sounds like fun.
At the same time, the President of Brazil. a medical authority in his own mind at least, is suggesting that the vaccines may have side effects including the feminization of men, women growing beards, and people generally mutating into Crocodiles. Kind of paints the upcoming orgies in a new light, no?
Keep your social contacts up, and keep the batteries in your phones charged as video of the above might become the next hot product. I'm visualizing a fancy house with my own lagoon where I can mate with/drag under and eat the supply of bearded bikini babes this will attract.
Stacy (Tank) Abrams has announced that Georgia currently registers 7.7M voters. This is an impressive number as the census department counts 7.8M adults in the state and this is a raw number which includes everyone with a pulse and respiration.
Somewhat more than that is usually required to legally vote, at least in most states, and no one has bothered to ask what number of those 7.7M voters might be either metabolically or ethereally challenged. Again it varies by state, but most states disenfranchise these sorts of people, at least to some extent.
Not to worry, as I expect that if someone in Georgia is disinclined to go to the trouble of filling out and submitting a ballot, there will be lots of people there who will be pleased to do it for them, and as many times as might seem prudent to insure that the persons preferences are properly expressed.
At this point I would be completely unsurprised to hear, on Jan 6 (or 7th, or 10th or whenever) that Georgia had elected 2 senators with a record setting turnout of 105% or more of the states eligible voting population.
Dr (very important) Jill Biden produced a paper back in 2006 on retention of students in community colleges that contained this gem, found at Gateway Pundit:
"Three quarters of the class will be Caucasian; one quarter of the class will be African American; one seat will hold a Latino; and the remaining seats will be filled with students of Asian descent or non-resident aliens."
Now we all know that Harvard has been trying to reduce the number of Asian students enrolled there for the last few years by one subterfuge or another, but here's a scholarly paper on how to do it.
Looking at how this election was stolen, and the efforts everywhere to cover the deed up by studiously investigating everything but the actual cause, let's look into what needs to be done to put a stop to this, or at least cause the crooks to develop better methods.
How about a mandatory forensic audit of all voting machines used in any election that includes federal office or federal level questions?
A quick plug in test to assure that what goes in is in fact what comes out would be a start although that immediately brings to mind the on-board computers in Volkswagens that can recognize a test probe and reset themselves to give the right answers. At this point it seems that a plug-in to a voting machine makes anything at all possible with the implication that the presence of a plug-in might also trigger a complete software delete and reload depending on who wrote the plug-in.
Joe Huffman has described flummery detection software as fairly easy to write, and flummery prevention algorithms as something any honest programmer could include in his work. I suspect that if such software were submitted for approval to a less than honest purveyor, that said purveyor could take that as a starting point and have his own people write the flummery into the program while carefully skirting the obvious trip wires.
Whatever, tamper resistant software is sorely needed and needs to be ready in time for the 2022 elections. 2 years should be sufficient to develop this. The big danger to Dominion &Co would be that the new programmers might discover the mechanism used in this election, blow the whistle on it, and somehow find an honest hews reporter who might publish it which would lead to jail time for someone and possibly serious imprecations for some elected officials. Might at least be fun to watch.
UPDATE: Jim Bennett emails: “My theory is, Kamela will want Joe to stay for two years and a day, so she will be eligible for that second full term in 2028. She wants the 10-year presidency, second only to FDR. And after all, Joe’s just window dressing. No harm in keeping him around longer. Also, blame him, not her, for the red tide of the 2022 elections.”
I have my doubts already about any red tide in '22 as afyer the Dem wins in Georgia coming up*, the fix should be comfortably in in time for the next elections.
*NOTE: Georgia is using the same Dominion voting machines and software that gave the state to Biden. This time there are only 4 candidates on the ballot for 2 offices. My prediction is that both Dems will win by about 2% which is high enough to not trigger recounts. The big question is not who will win, but by how much. Too big a sweep will trigger investigations, and too close a win would trigger recounts and possibly audits. Can't have that.

Here's a headline from an article by a respected (they pay him) writer:
The answer is yes. My explanation is that they're humoring him. As soon as he's inaugurated, he'll be given a "lateral promotion" to "Executive Manager of Policy*", and President Harris will move all her picks in and get down to the business of running the country into her favorite ditch. So you see, it doesn't really matter who Biden picks.
*Terry Pratchett described a situation in which the devils in Hell ran a coup d'état against an incompetent manager in Hell. They announced that as a reward for his exemplary work, he was being promoted to Policy Manager or some such. He was given a big office with a big desk and a pile of blank sheets of parchment a pen, and 2 slots in the wall marked In and Out. His new job was to write new Policy and put it in the out slot. The same paper shortly came back through the In slot, which he then would mark up and correct and send back Out. He never noticed that the slots were connected or that his office had no doors. He was very happy.
Here in Colorado, the power company, Xcel energy, has been asked to begin setting up a wide network of charging stations for the anticipated surge in electric vehicles. Zcel has estimated this would cost some $130M to do and suggests that the cost simply be blended into everyones utility bill.
I eagerly anticipate a requirement for a statewide network of gas stations to supply free gas to motorists, paid for by a tax on the O&G industry.
Having seen enough evidence to convince anyone, the Arizona legislature has filed notice that its electoral votes will be apportioned by its legislature.
This rather historic event is being roundly ignored by the MSM. Imagine my surprise.
Seems in Georgia, the Trump people got a Dominion machine to examine, and after entering an equal number of votes for Trump and Biden, the machine took 37 votes away from Trump and added them to Biden. This from a modest number of test votes.
Looks pretty shifty to me.
I found an interesting article at medical express today suggesting that a new drug might be a quick cure for numerous debilities of mental decline. I've seen reports of breakthroughs of this sort before but nothing ever seems to come of them. Presumably the drugs are doled out to highly placed politicians which keeps them in office for abnormally lengthy periods and accounts for them only leaving their office feet first.
One of my friends wondered if this might be speeded up in time to do Slow Joe Biden any good, and if it did become available, if the VP would attempt to interfere. This could set up a behind-the-scenes catfight between the VP and the 1st lady.
There's the basis for a good political thriller: The 1st lady invites
the female VP over for tea, and shortly thereafter the VP succumbs to
something which the surgeon General labels "Covid". Said Surgeon General
then moves into the VP slot and rumors begin to circulate that he and
the 1st lady might be more than just friends. The president, who is
doing well to remember his wife's name, provides distractions and comic
Not being a big fan of this sort of literature, I have no idea who might be qualified to write such a thing. Might even make the basis for a dark sitcom along the lines of "Fresno".
The curve is now back to about the shape one would expect, just 156% of what one might normally expect.
