    What fun to wake up to TRUMP, Guttfeld, and loads of Jadzia posts!

  2. Mothy67 says:

    I find it funny that Trump or his people are brilliant in laying traps for dimocrat toddlers. I am seeing little blips of outrage about Trump saying twitter was nothing before him. They can’t not talk about him. He buys himself billions in free advertising cause they can’t resist. It will be fact checked. Proggies will never accept The Donald but each time they rant about little stupid shit they remind suburban moms how much better it was with him at the helm.

    When I see headlines like this, I’m all “yeah, sure, whatever… ” Biden trampling all over states rights, pretty much what got us into the Civil War. The commies don’t care, it’s control bitches…. 😛

    • taw46 says:

      States resisting Biden now up to 22.

      • lyn5 says:

        It’s time to move.

        • Constance says:

          I agree! It’s time for me to move some place smaller anyway but I found this perfect (for me) condo on the south side of Queen Anne hill. I’ve been looking for a long time. Oddly as soon as I walked in to it I started feeling wrong and sad. When I was in Kalispell MT last year I felt really great and didn’t want to leave. I think it’s the whole west coast Progressive decline depression. It Omnipresent. I feel like if Larry Elder wins CA there is hope for a west coast revival. Otherwise, it’s time to move.

          • jadzia1971 says:

            Queen Anne is a nice place to live, though. I used to live on the Fremont side of the hill, on Nickerson. Walking up and over that hill to get to work was an awesome exercise program.

    Hoping for the right outcome on this one. Makes me ill, what was done to these people because they supported Trump.

  6. DeniseVB says:

    Meet the next great rep from VA-02, God. I. Hope. So.

  7. DeniseVB says:

    Sorry, not sorry… granddaughter’s graduation live streaming from Great Lakes……..I’m all blubbery happy crying 😀 I just love this patriotic pomp ❤

    Every revolution, every civil war, and the only difference between the two is who’s in charge when it’s over, has a tripwire. In hindsight historians can look back and find the moment the people in charge stepped on it and set the war in motion, but at that moment in time it’s not always clear the powerful folks knew they had reached the limit. I sense the Biden administration announced the vaccine mandate at the same time Harris was speaking out against taking away a woman’s bodily autonomy (smh) to get the Afghanistan debacle off the front page just hours before the 20th anniversary of 9/11. Biden himself has stated the federal government hasn’t any legal right to do this, and the legal battle against it began the second the words left his mouth. He did succeed in changing the conversation, but did he “trip the wire”?

    • lateblum says:

      I remember when Obama said there were things he wasn’t permitted to do because he wasn’t a dictator – although it would’ve been easier if he were. He still did all those things he said he wouldn’t and couldn’t do. Nothing happened to him or to his administration. We are still living with the fall out. Biden and his mandates are part of the fall out of Obama.

      • elliesmom says:

        Trump was the response to what Obama did. Now people know they can’t vote the dictators out. What will we do next?

      • 1539days says:

        Obama helped to lose the House to Republicans, then lost the Senate in 2014. He might have lost the White House in 2012 except that the GOP went along with disenfranchising the Tea Party and making Romney their candidate.

        The revolutions have tipping points, but the “war” usually requires a shot heard around the world. Obama did very little to affect people, just make their lives a little worse. This vaccine mandate is intended to make people obey, but if it leads to people losing their jobs, that’s when the revolt happens.

        The Tea Party eventually led to Trump beating Hillary and upending the GOP’s plans. And they began with a guy yelling on CNBC about derivatives.

        • elliesmom says:

          The original “shot heard round the world” happened because the government left the confines of the city and showed the folks out in the countryside they couldn’t ignore what was happening in Boston anymore. They were farmers and artisans largely unaffected by the games the government was playing with sales taxes and tariffs. They considered themselves loyal subjects of the King. If the Redcoats hadn’t marched on Concord to try to blow up the colonists’ munitions, that shot wouldn’t have been fired. That’s not to say the revolution wouldn’t have started in another place on another day, but the chain of events that shot started led to the Battle of Bunker Hill and put the colonists at the point of no return.

          Over the last decades the Left has been encroaching on our individual rights a bite at a time. At some point other folks are going to have to push back or to surrender. The Left doesn’t appear to have any plans to stop.

          • Constance says:

            The Left want’s “full control or death: and the other side aren’t sure if they want “Liberty or death”. But last summer when Antifa/BLM/CIA tried to take it out to the burbs and small towns they ran into obviously armed citizens staring them down, and Antifa/BLM/CIA left and went back to the cities. Leftists and the Biden regime have already pushed too far for anyone but city dwellers. It’s the city dwellers who need to hit the streets like France and England and like the blockade in Australia. When that happens the time has come.

  10. foxyladi14 says:

    The DOJ suing Texas! 😆
    You do know that,The US is made up of 50 states, and each state has its own laws, its own jurisdiction, its own legislature and its own constitution. The US has a federal government, not a centralized government. It would be wrong to be accused of violating the constitution. The question is which constitution?
    Something to think about! 😀

      No, the vaccine is about government BS. It is obvious the vaccine doesn’t work and forcing an unworkable solution on The People is about power.

      • Mothy67 says:

        They have no idea what longterm effects might be. Chantix recently got pulled. I am willing to wear a mask on public transportation and I’ll shop at stores that don’t enforce. I’dvlike to see Cry Macho, but I’m not 16 (although I’ve been told I bear a striking resemblance to Linda Darnell) I can wait 3 months to rent. My fear is pushing it on kids. And I don’t know what data is even real.

        • jadzia1971 says:

          I think I have FINALLY convinced my teenage sons to wait as long as possible until we have more information on the cardio side effects. Unfortunately, the 15-year-old is applying to culinary school for next year, and I’m guessing that they will require it. It’s a lot easier for me, an old who runs her business from home, to be a refusenik than for a kid who just wants to make his dream come true.

  12. lyn5 says:

    • lyn5 says:

    • 1539days says:

      Yeah. They said that shit 8 months ago, before the “booster.” Even if 100% of the US is triple vaccinated (minus the vaccine deaths) this all keeps going because of the rest of the world. Trump tried to close the borders. That’s the real lockdown that works.

  13. Mothy67 says:

    So I did about half the yard with the pole saw and then the chain came off. I called it quits because it’s not a position I am accustomed to standing in. Worked very well, but I’ll be sore tomorrow. I have to cut down the branches to fit in the recycling bags even though they get tossed in same truck. Nazi’s have rules and they will fine you. Forget who made the suggestion, but it was a great buy. It usually (twice a year) runs me a couple of hundred and it takes them forever. They do throw the branches in the chipper, but it’s not like I cut down a Sequoia

    • jadzia1971 says:

      The H-man is going nuts with our pole saw (aaaaand the jokes just write themselves, folks) and is super sore (see: the jokes). We just press the kids into service to take everything up to the goats, so no recycling problems here.

  15. Helen Kenney says:

    random thought
    Remember several years ago, when every once in a while there were news blips about soros backing DAs and school board members for election. Today we are seeing the results and it ain’t pretty and definitely not good for our cities or our country. Too many did not pay attention and it was not a big thing in the news.

    • Mothy67 says:

      The useless republican leaders did nothing. In L.A. they have been instructed to not oppose any parole board hearings. They aren’t even present.

    • Somebody says:

      I have wondered the same thing. No human interest stories, no tearful airport reunions. There have been no family interviews with worried or angry family members of those supposedly still stuck in Afghanistan. You know the mom and dad worried sick for their missionary daughter or their government contractor son. The wife or siblings of a former military member turned private contractor stuck over there. No footage of any of the above reuniting.

      Nothing, nada, zilch. Where are the yellow ribbons? It’s all very odd, very odd indeed.

    • Constance says:

      Wow, that lays it on the line. And it doesn’t even mention the election fraud and the fact that Biden is an illegitimate occupant of the White House. I’m not sure these Democrat ass hats realize what they have set off with their vaccine mandates. Even the ass hat Republican orgs are going to sue.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        There are three or four dozen (depending on the day) on my floor at the office building. The other agencies on this floor are all arms length (sort of) government entities and had all local and state politicians on the boards and most all of NVA is really really really over the top and ready to fall off the progressive’s farthest edge. The hive mind of woke.

    I read that the wall/fence was going back up in DC. Any truth to this?

    • lyn5 says:

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      Many sections never really came down. They avoid letting those areas be photographed and have even tried to pretend they are work zones. with no workers. ever.

      It was all buzz of the day when I got to work. So I have had to listen to lots of dumb comments on it being a rally for the unvaccinated deplorables who evidently are viewed as purple people eating killer zombies.

      • lyn5 says:

        Saw that the vaccination rate in Oregon for minorities is 40 percent and above 65% for whites and Asians.

        • Mt.Laurel says:

          The demographic rates distributions across states are not all the different. The the older age groups have the highest rates in every state.

          I am not sure where people are getting their numbers (twitter?/ The WP?) but many around here think the this area is at 90% + across the board and that those red states and rural counties are at less than 20% for everyone.

        • jadzia1971 says:

          It’s kind of the same thing here. Our biggest minority community is people from the Mahgreb (mostly Morocco and Algeria), and those are the folks who are saying NO, for the most part. (Although I recently had a lively debate with the H-man’s cousin, who can’t wrap his mind around our refusal to get the shots. That said, the cousin grew up in France and is pretty “French” in his mindset.) Conservative white people seem to be uptaking the injections at pretty much the same rate as everybody else (minus the minority community).

          Come to think of it, the only people I know here who are saying no to all this BS and are NOT from North Africa are…. immigrants from America. So maybe it’s an “outsider” thing.

      • Constance says:

        Well I read Gab a lot and listen to a few Patriot pod casts and it is considered that Antifa/BLM/CIA are having a rally that will be a False Flag riot because they will be dressed as Trump supporters so everyone should stay away. Usually there are a number of people begging for money to travel to Patriot events but I haven’t seen anything like that regarding this supposed Jan 6th protest of the Progressive DC Gulag.

  23. Mothy67 says:

    One last thing before I go back to yardwork– took Gracie to vet early this morning. She had to have her ears checked. Beagles are like no breed I’ve ever known. I have had always had misbahaving mutts. I had to carry her out of the car when we got to vets. She would not budge. I had to carry her into building and then to office then to room. She refuses to move. She had been a breeder who I guess stopped making money. My brother’s vet was keeping in her in a cage alone overnight in his office until he could get her a home. My brother said my brother would take her. No I don’t want another dog. Oh well. Boom Gracie. We left the vets walking about two blocks to car. She was happy got ear infection meds. Prancing up the street- we got to my mom’s car and she wouldn’t budge. It’s about a 25 minute walk from vets to my home I thought we could do that. She saw her car on a street lined with cars and would not move, she sniffed it to make sure. my mom was paying the bill Gracie would not move. Ten minutes. She saw my mom and the tale went a wagging and jumped in when the door was open. Got home she jumped over me to get inside her home. I didn’t want her. My God the sweetest thing. I thought maybe she was deaf at first. I’d speak to her yell at her .She stares off sometimes. Just sits and stares. She’s not deaf because if I say treats, outside, or walking she dashes to the kitchen or front door. She was bred and they took her babies away before she was ready and then they just dropped her off with no one to take her. The vet was not putting her down, but I’m sure he can’t take home every sad case. He kept her in the office. Kids want puppies. I walk her and she stops and stares. How many litters did they take away from her before she could part with them? She looks forlorn. People are cunts. She was returned to the vets at least five times to sit alone every night. The vet was doing everything to keep her from shelter. Little bitch reminds me all the time that perhaps I possess a tincture of humanity. I had said no more dogs. I wept hard when my Cammy died- he had been thrown out of a high speeding vehicle and left for death on the road. Best dog ever. Border collie. He sat at my Dad’s door every night as my father faded.
    I said no no no no to Gracie. I lost. I walk down the stairs, when she hears my voice the energy crisis is solved. That tail (also tale) goes a wagging. Just love. Fauci’s team chose beagles because to experiment on because they were docile. I don’t want him tried I want him to be the victim in the most sadistic fabtasies of the Marque de Sade. Experiments might be necessary, but they chose the most docile dogs when the same data was already available which to me says hey we have 500 and my buddy gets 20%. Rot in hell if you can intenteniolly hurt a puppy.

    Just wondering who did not like fauci from day one? I knew of him before covid way back, but when he came out as the Cover Girl model for Kung flu. I thought thisbis so fucked up. The guy has always been a diva. Confess even after all I know I did not expect the chief virologist in the middle of the apocalypse to pose for InStyle while chatting glibly on cnn. He is evil.

    • lyn5 says:

      Fauci’s plastic surgery is better than Horse Face’s.

      • Constance says:

        If horse face is Kamala you are right. She used to be pretty now. since that awful facelift, she looks like The Joker. I can hardly look at her. But for some reason it has always seemed that east coast people have good facelifts that take out tiredness but leave character but California face lifts are just awful.

    • 1539days says:

      I don’t know about Day 1, but he was definitely two-faced early on. A few weeks into the pandemic, it was already obvious that besides changing the story (masks, BLM social distancing) constantly, he was playing a game of “I think the president is doing a fine job (wink, wink)” with the media.

      • Mothy67 says:

        Some of my best friends from college have gone very deep into the dark side. They sold out but are paid well. Make 250 as an attorney in suburbs of Washington and have integrity or suck Soros dick and be able to send your kids to the it day school. I know not one who doesn’t swallow.

        • 1539days says:

          I just saw a “scifi” YouTube show with Alex Jones as a guest. He basically said he was offered a chance to work for the dark side and get his audience to change their minds on the right issues.

    • elliesmom says:

      I didn’t have feelings about Fauci one way or the other at first, My skepticism started with the “14 days to flatten the curve” garbage. There was little rhyme or reason to what was allowed to open and what wasn’t. Then the push for everyone to wear masks that are the equivalent of putting up a chainlink fence to keep mosquitoes out of your yard. Closing schools for a virus that affects children dramatically less than the seasonal flu, which we never have closed school for in my lifetime. When Fauci stood up and said it was following the “science”, I knew he was either a quack or a liar. Then it was just a “follow the money” thing. Who has money invested where? When the censorship of legitimate experts started, then I started thinking “evil”. We’ll never know how many lives were lost because keeping the EUAs valid required suppressing therapeutic treatments.

      • 1539days says:

        The Democrats didn’t act in January because they didn’t want to district from impeachment. By March 11, it was already a pandemic. By definition, you can’t isolate a pandemic. It was too late.

      Me. He made my skin crawl.

    • jeffhas says:

      I am suspicious of EVERY person that has been in government for years. So I automatically thought Fauci was the enemy.

      That’s just how I roll, I assume anyone associated with the government for years is evil trash, and you’ll have to prove me wrong before I change my mind, and that doesn’t happen often if at all.

    • lateblum says:

      From the start I experienced a feeling of revulsion to Fauci. It was his lack of authenticity. At least to me. And it wasn’t the New Jersey accent. That’s the only thing I find real about him.

      • swanspirit says:

        I spent 30 years working with doctors. I have come across some egos, but Fauci, is just revolting. Those lowered eyelids, and that supercondescending ” I cannot be questioned ” tone of voice, arrrrggh. He makes me want to throw up all over him.

        • lateblum says:

          His smug arrogance is what does that to me. And I don’t only want to throw up, I want to throw punches.

  34. lyn5 says:

  35. jeffhas says:

    Lara Logan gets her star turn taking over Tucker tonight.

    As a talking head, I found her slightly stilted and average tonight… but she is such a serious person with serious knowledge I will pretty much follow her for as long as it takes for her to get her own show on real Fox, not just Fox Nation…. I know Hannity’s numbers are too high to move him out, but I could easily switch Laura for Lara – Ingram is just more empty space between Tucker and Gutfeld.

    • Mothy67 says:

      Dead weight for me are brett baier and niel cavuto. Put Shannon Bream on at brett’s hour. Logan at 4 and at 7 do outnumbered with the fun happy normal straight guys. The Cain dude, the handsome weekend guy, let hemmer hang around and have a different woman moderate each day. Pete Hegseth, Kilmeade, Will Cain. Smart guys who aren’t looking constipated talking with a smart woman. Throw in a gay guy but do something that shows straight white men who respect each other are the best are the best. Get rid of blowhard baiet

      • jeffhas says:

        I don’t care enough apparently to watch Brett and Neil regularly, and could care less trying to get them on a pad or computer…. Neil is a complete waste of space. Brett gives Fox some moderate credibility (as if CNN had a right leaning real journalist) so I can stomach him in Not Prime Time – but you probably know better then me.

        Agree with you about Bream – her show is a joy to watch, great combo of straight news and hopeful, uplifting and funny stories that make her show so easy to watch – doesn’t exist anywhere on any news channel.

        Lara Logan is f*cking badass, and she knows sh*t no one else knows. I will follow her anywhere – have been on board with her since she joined FOX. She was fine on Tucker tonight, but if she was on every day for a year or two, she would be as good if not better then Tucker – although I can’t speak highly enough of what Tucker does – it is true heavy lifting and he covers so many subjects that are not in the headlines – and has been covering those kinds of stories for years. Thank God for Tucker… but I want Lara in Prime Time too!

        • Mothy67 says:

          I try to watch Guttfeld and I never get up before Bream finishes her opening if the day was interesting I sit for the show. What I like about her is she reads through whatever the story is quickly and articulatly without emphasis and dramatic pauses. Brett reads things like his voice is the news. Hate to use the term but his tenor, his posture, his pauses are mansplaining. I also find him dull. Bream is what they thought they had with Kelley. I like Laura Ingraham but no spice after Hannity. At this point it’s like wild child at 8, sober daddy at 9 and then mom at ten before the kids are up at 11 with Guttfeld. I try to watch Tucker, go off do some work come back at end of Laura. For me Laura and Hannity are a bit too grown up and too similar. I have already read the stories by that hour. Perhaps the day is new to their regulars. Hannity pissed me off with tick tock. Laura is like going to post At Andrew Breitbart. Hannity at 8 Tucker at 9 followed by Laura in my opinion would work better. I was an assistant to a programmer 20 some years ago. i think about silly things.

  36. Constance says:

    Wow I just popped in over at RDs Confluence. She is all in on the mandatory vaccines. Really down with the blame and retribution. Into the whole “The unvaccinated are giving the vaccinated Covid causing them to need more shots …..because their shots didn’t work or what?

    • 1539days says:

      RD’s experience in laboratories and as a bartender should tell her that spread is occurring between the vaccinated and that since more of the world is unvaccinated than vaccinated, anything that’s done in the US will not block the spread from outside the US.

      Pandemics like this take two years to run their course. This will probably take longer because it’s the least deadly pandemic in history and the world is trying to fight the transmission of it through the human genome, which will eventually happen.

      • Constance says:

        I also worked in medical research labs my whole career. I don’t see how a scientist can be so stupid as to discount natural immunity! And since children haven’t been getting it they should have been allowed free movement and free breath so they could acquire natural immunity since covid is now endemic. Also Hydroxycholoriquine worked in Spain, Italy, Brazil, Mexico, France and Germany and Ivermectin worked in Japan and India so why do they not work here in the USA? RD’s attitude is not scientific it is the attitude of a person who thinks they are elite and wants an A+ in propaganda. I used to like and relate to her.

    • lyn5 says:

      My guess is that the vaccinated thought they were totally immune and never took precautions.

    • lateblum says:

      According to what I saw on Twitter tonight, Psaki verified it when Peter Doocy asked her about US citizens being mandated to be vaccinated, but the illegal immigrants on the southern border are not. Psaki’s answer was, “Correct”.

      • lateblum says:

        And she said it with that smug smirk on her face… just barely able to suppress her delight.
        I didn’t like her much before, but now she has crawled into the “loathed” column in my book.

  37. Helen Kenney says:

    Gutfeld! is great tonight. what a powerful opening

  38. Mothy67 says:

    I thought Guttfeld was great tonight with my President but if the show is going to have legs he needs to give some time to his interesting guests and co hosts. It’s funny once in awhile but Kat and Tyrus are worthy of me as are guests. I’d advise him to watch johny Carson. I got in just in time to see Trump. The last half hour he gave like a minute or two to guests. I find him funny when he is direct. The skits I find painfully sophmoric. They are ok on slow news days but this week I have watched as he gave time to meh tapes. He had fascinating people sitting there. I think it was last night or night before he had pawn shop guy. Share the love Greg. It will only enhance your product.
    Just my thought. I only have one.

    • jeffhas says:

      Solid analysis. I do think Greg’s show is getting better each week, little by little – it used to be early in I didn’t care if I missed it or saw it…. But lately he is becoming more watchable, I actually try to catch it real time. TOTALLY agree about Kat and Tyrus, Kat specifically is VERY lightweight. Greg has never given enough time to his guests – maybe three segments instead of four?… but Greg himself is absolutely finding a groove. I believe his audience is going to continue to grow, and he will continue to get better – already the show is better.

      Re: skits, some are definitely sophomoric and grain worthy, but the ones with the two actual comedians are kinda hysterical if only because of how insanely low rent they are… anything THAT low rent that actually makes it on TV is funny (to me). If his ratings keep going up, better guests will take the chance and come on.

      • jeffhas says:

        groan worthy (f*ck you autocorrect)

      • Mothy67 says:

        His ratings are steady. Colbert is by the numbers leader, but Greg beats him a few times a week. It’s sad about Fallon he went woke and got broke. He was a genial guy. He should have stayed in that lane. What is amazing is FOX which used to be your father in laws channel is now the hippest place to be. I love it because Bill O’Reilly was the Holy Grail for leftist to take down. They extinguished him and got Tucker. Not only did they start pulling in the younger viewers by way of Carlson but they got Fox Nation on top of it. Had the toddlers ignored Bill O it would still be “why is grandpa yelling at the TV” i got fox nation because of Tucker.Cnn looks like cranky pants and all MSNBc has is maddow. She’s like facebook. Worth her weight but youth cares not about facebook.

    • 1539days says:

      He should watch old episodes of his old show, Red Eye.

    My new favorite insomnia show is Bewitched. I loved the show when I was a kid. I was born in 67 so I saw reruns. I would watch all day. I missed everything but it entertained me. When rugrat graduates I want that house. Love the open floor plan. Darren had a full bath in his first floor office. Laundry in the kitchen. Subtle in the corner. Why is mine three stories down and under the stairs. I’d like a bigger yard, but Gladys Kravitz would be best neighbor ever. (Original)
