    “Our Country Needs a Savior Right Now and Our Country Has a Savior. And It’s Not Me. It’s Someone Much Higher” – President Trump in Dallas on Christmas Week (VIDEO)

    How beautiful! Another familiar place to get the memory genes to kick in. The zoo in the summer (and the Brookfield Zoo) were frequent destinations, but I never spent a Christmas in Chicago. My mother became a raving lunatic (I’m not exaggerating) when we told her we were taking her only grandchild halfway across the country. My dad made us promise we’d always come home for Christmas. I only ever missed one Christmas with my parents their entire lives. We lived fairly close to them that Christmas, and my mom reluctantly forgave me for needing to be with Elliesdad’s mom that year, and I do mean reluctantly. While we were living in the Chicago area, my mom overcame her fear of flying (with a little help from Dutch courage), and came to stay with us for a month in the summer. She loved the zoo, and I think I’ve been in every zoo within a 100 miles of everywhere I’ve ever lived.

      I like the NC zoo. I will probably try to get there this spring.

      I remember driving north on Lake Shore Drive from work at the Medical District when the Zoo Lights at Lincoln Park Zoo (my favorite) first became an attraction. They were stunning and there were plenty of traffic mishaps that year. It was impossible to keep from noticing the wondrous color coming from the zoo area. I think the zoo had to move the display or redesign it so that most of the lights were tucked further back from the visual range of drivers.
      My son and his family visit the zoo every year as an annual family outing. While I’m sorry the lights weren’t even a twinkle in the eye of the designer when my kids were young, I’m happy the lights have become a staple in holiday magic for them and their girls now.

      Thanks for posting this picture, Denise.

      So I guess that means the Feds are already planning their next false coup attempt. they seem to think it is their reason for being.

    Slaton, TX becomes 43rd ‘sanctuary city’ in US, 39th in Texas to outlaw abortion.

    Mayor Clifton Shaw defended the ordinance, saying ‘[s]ea turtles get more respect than a human fetus does in this country.’

      The idea of no one going to work on the 4th is intriguing. I can participate in the “not spending a nickel” part.

      Best graf:

      Why is there absolutely no talk — except in the state of Florida, run by Governor Ron DeSantis — about comprehensive early treatment of Covid? Why is the CDC not setting up early treatment centers around the USA, where people with symptoms can receive monoclonal antibody infusions and kits of well-known, cheap, safe and effective oral medicines that can be used easily at home to defeat the virus? (Those medicines have been surreptitiously outlawed by our own CDC, you know.) Is it outlandish to suppose that the official “Joe Biden” government objective is to allow as many people to die as possible in order to keep the public terrorized? Meanwhile, they’ve provoked the public to line up for Covid tests using a PCR system so discredited for Covid detection that months ago the CDC scheduled it to go offline on December 31st, (And, uh, why the long time-lag between the decision and the action? Answer: it allows the CDC to falsely jack up case numbers until the year’s bitter end.)

        Because the “vaccine” is almost effective enough to keep people with it from dying of COVID (except when they die from the jab) but will still allow them to spread it to the unvaccinated. That way, COVID can be like Marek’s disease in chickens, where you either get the shot or (in 6 out of 1000 cases) die.

        I’m impressed by the fact that the left is so blatant about wanting people to have “free” health care, then make the cost of it your personal liberty, because the unvaccinated should apparently just die in the hallway.

      I love the Venn Diagram. I illustrates just how off the edge they have gone as you can indeed see bits and pieces from all of those example in the mix of crap they are throwing about.

    Speaking of Dystopia…this from my next book, A Circle of Tribes…
    East of Dystopia
    within the walls of Dystopia
    one hears the call of sanity by the sea
    and the growls of muzzled science
    lurching to be free
    as the atlas shrugs

    to the north of Dystopia
    in the embrace of imagined states of bind
    ideas merge with choices gone astray
    as one sits for a breakfast
    of civilization and remorse

    to the south
    are the folds of forgotten glades
    now just solitary forms
    filled with ossified animal parts
    severed by the blades of angry masters
    on their animal farms

    to the west
    an ocean spawns
    creatures of deep intent
    bent on reaching the shores
    of a brave new world

    just to the east of Dystopia

    in the spread of things
    rivers cling to the course of days
    as sounds with wings cascade from the cliffs
    to treble the forsaken shores of discord
    with the broken notes of time

    while the fires burn orange
    with the smell of well-worn books
    and the clocks wind backwards
    in a machine that time has forgotten

    and so we return
    into the heart of Dystopia
    an ember city
    with a horde of flies

    all along the road
    so ever green

    Thinking about Kung Flu 6.0
    Not buying Fauchahauntas and booker testing positive. Reminds me of Tom Hanks at the onset. Nope doesn’t gel with me.
    Things are seeping out about 1/6. Slowly but evidence of gov’t participation is becoming more obvious.
    Retired generals fear mongering about revolution as more and more becomes clear. Just seems convenient that omicron is sucking all the air out of the room.
    How many would be tried for treason if the truth came out? I think they will stop at nothing.

      The trouble is Democrats are unhealthy mentally, Steven, The Fake Historian.

      If we had a healthy body politic, we could have a real conversation as to whether two senators in each state fairly represents our country any longer.

    • 1539days says:

      This is a great example of a sunk cost fallacy. Since 50 Senators + Kameltoe = passage of a once a year reconciliation bill, they think they’re 98% of the way to passing anything they want. In reality, they have 49% of Senators when they need 60% to beat a filibuster, but they already baked trickery into the cake.

      McBride (defense attorney) says spray Nichols allegedly used that day has no chain of custody. Hogan says it doesn’t matter, what if someone handed him a gun? McBride points out the substance in the canister hasn’t been identified.

      McBride says he used unidentified spray to protect others.

      McBride says DOJ hasn’t proven Nichols is a threat to the community or a flight risk.

      Discussing Nichols location inside a conference room in the building–McBride says it was defensive as police were severely beating protesters. Happened after he learned Babbitt had been shot.

      I’m not an attorney but I am shocked at how these pretrial detention hearings act as a criminal trial with judges vetting government evidence not deciding whether the defendant’s past indicates they will flee or pose a threat to their community. I mean, who needs a jury?

    My wife, son, & I visited this museum 10 or 15 years ago.
    It’s immense, & we were the only visitors.
    The staff were very nice, even starting up a replica V8 engine about the size of my fist so we could see it run. It was a true, working gasoline engine, with spark plugs, carburetor, fuel pump, radiator & cooling system. Amazing.

  25. 1539days says:

    The most laugh worthy moment for me this week is the new claim that vaccine + booster + COVID = super immunity. This is after:
    1. Vaccine immunity is better than natural immunity. Then people started getting COVID 3 months after the vaccine rollout.
    2. Some people are getting “breakthrough” cases in rare cases. Then it’s obvious the vaccine is practically useless a few months after the jab.
    3. Okay, we’ll jab you again and that will “boost” your immunity. Oh, and try to mix and match. Whatever you do, don’t take J&J (probably because the kickbacks didn’t come in).
    4. Sometimes, you might still get COVID with the vaccine AND a booster, but if you get COVID, your immune system will be super boosted.

    So basically, you can absolutely get COVID no matter how many jabs you get. Some people don’t fight off COVID as easily as others, which is the whole reason they criticized natural immunity when it was supposedly unreliable.

    The Trump photo book is heavy. It arrived without any corner bumps and in perfect condition, because the shipping box was designed for the book. I’m excited that the Trump-signed book plate will arrive separately, because I plan to frame it with the photo of him hugging the flag.
