    44BC, Caesar murdered by Senators.

    Spurinna warned the dictator that his life would be in danger for a period of 30 days, which would expire on the 15th of March.

    Beware of self interested Senators.

      Speculation yet again that the Mueller Report drops TODAY.

      I thought it hilarious that Weissman resigned from the Special Counsel’s staff in order “to work on behalf of the falsely accused.”

      I imagine he’ll be very busy visiting all the Enron collapse defendants he’s prosecuted over the years then. Unfortunately, that Senator in Alaska is no longer available.

      Just so there’s no misunderstanding about how the massacre in NZ is going to be played, here is the headline from the UK Daily Mail

      At least 49 people are killed and 48 injured in multiple Christchurch mosque massacres involving an Australian terrorist, 28, who live-streamed himself opening fire on worshippers – as a man in his 20s is charged with murder

      That’s how it reads now. THIS is how it read 30 mins ago.

      FORTY-NINE worshippers are slaughtered and dozens injured at two New Zealand mosques after Trump-supporting white supremacist opens fire and live-streams the massacre: Woman and three men – including one in a suicide vest – are arrested

      But they’ve kept the sidebar headline: ‘Trump is a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose’: New Zealand gunman’s sick manifesto reveals he supported the president and wanted to spark ‘a civil war in the U.S.’ by massacring dozens`

      re: the assassination of Julius Caesar. I dip into Roman history a bit and found out there is some speculation that Brutus was actually his biological son by Caesar’s one true love, Servilia. They never married, but she was his long-time mistress.

      I didn’t listen or watch any of O’Rourke’s blathering yesterday but Levin played several clips on his show last night. Geebus – the guy sounds like a hysterical 12-year-old. Our economic crisis? WHAT economic crisis? Unemployment is down, tax revenues are up, salaries are up, jobs are plentiful. Oh and that “tell the truth about slavery and segregation”?

      Okay, folks, just for grits and shins….

      It looks like “Popehat” and the Avenutti have engaged in some sparring over on Twitter and the results are rather entertaining. Thread is here:

      I was surprised by the comments – it would appear that the Popehat is really not well regarded by many – I always thought he was popular and I’ve followed him in the past. eagles – do you know anything more about him. I just know he’s an attorney and has had interesting takes on legal items in the past. But he’s no Legal Insurrection, for sure.

      An excellent Canadian researcher show how tens of millions of American FOUNDATION grubby money lobbied heavily to lock in the crucial Canadian oil and gas resources. In Alberta alone, 100,000 direct jobs have been lost. These are skilled well paying jobs which have the usual ripple effect.

      This kind of money worked to get the unemployed moron elected as Prime Minister. Believe me, I hold the citizens of Canada collectively guilty of voting for a known name and nice hair. Obama was just up here spouting nonsense and people paid to see him in person.

      Judicial Watch has filed an ethics complaint against Rep. Adam Schiff (D(ouche). – California):

      http://www.judicialwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/Complaint-against-Rep-Adam-Schiff-03-11-19-2.pdf

      It alleges witness tampering. Schiffty has a real problem, since the offenses alleged against him are similar to the ones leveled at Nunes and Sessions vis-a-vis non-disclosure of meetings with individuals.

      I have seen people mention a few alternatives like GAB. It’s hard to fight these behemoths. Opening retail bricks and mortar stores is losing to online outfits. Kylie Jenner, the 23 year old make up seller has managed to open successful real stores while still offering online sales. This proves that girls still wanna have fun. 🙂

      She’s 21. The youngest self-made billionaire ever. (You can argue against the ‘self made’ part, but I think you can do that with any of them)

      And the idea that she’d be a nobody but for the sex tape is one I disagree with. 2 of the Kardashian sisters and their brother ARE nobodies, Courtney, Khloe, Rob You’ve heard of them, but they don’t actually do anything outside their reality show.

      I have enormous respect for that Klan. They’ve made billions out of thin air. You can laugh and point if you want, but the fact is they have business success few other people have managed and they did it out of just a couple ideas – based on aspirational envy, the life force of every teenage girl in western civilization. They aren’t people I’d want to hang out with, but I’d trade an MBA from Stanford for 6 mos working for Kris Kardashian if that’s what I wanted out of life. I suspect Warren Buffet’s got nuthin’ on her.

      @ eaglesoars:

      What I mean is that would Kylie Jenner or any one of them even attracted national attention without the TV show? And the TV show is there because Sis is, essentially a frickin’ slut. That’s what I meant. The girl does hustle, but I seriously doubt she would have had the opportunities to hustle without the TV show. Kendall has not been nearly has successful in the modeling and manufacturing world as Kylie, and yet I think she’s the more beautiful of the two.

      Of course, eagles, you have to wonder — Would Bruce still be “Bruce” if he hadn’t been able to become a world-wide transgender star while transforming?

      True, but also unfair. BILL GATES wasn’t as successful as Kylie at that point in his life. Nobody has been.

      Jesse Holmes and Lance Mackey are in to Nome after 11 days, Lance w/11 dogs, Jesse with 9. They came in together, placing 27 and 28 respectively.

      You may know Jesse from “Life Below Zero”

      If you’ve watched the movie “The Great Alone”, you know of Lance.

      He is the only person to ever win the Iditarod and the Yukon Quest in the same year. Twice. He’s won the Iditarod 4 times. The man is a savant with dogs.

      Lance is a cancer survivor. He has no salivary glands, his vascular system is hosed from the cancer/treatment and his extremities are never warm.

      He makes the word ‘legend’ inadequate.

      THIS is interesting re the mosque shootings. I have found ‘bare naked islam’ to be reliable over the years.

      https://barenakedislam.com/2019/03/15/new-zealand-fake-news-media-intentionally-mislead-re-names-on-the-christchurch-mosques-shooters-weapons/

      Fighting back against international battle against all kaffirs. Is there a right way to do it? Politicians, the media, and the globalists have sided with islam. Tommy Robinson has been told he is on trial again for actions he has been cleared of. So, the British “justice system” found another way to word the old charges. Seriously, infidels are surrounded on all sides.

      The media makes no mention of the ongoing slaughter of Christians in the Middle East and Africa. The fact that there are no Churches who dare to publicize this fact is a giant something burger.

      A little reminder of islam 101:

      “As a muslim,” explains Anjem Choudary, “I must have hatred for everything which is non Islam”. Islam indoctrinates hatred and contempt for non-muslims. They are labelled with a special pejorative term — kafir (Arabic plural kuffar): “We hate the kuffar,” stressed Usamah Ath Thahabi (Channel 4 Undercover Mosque, 2009). The Koran, which forms part of Islamic law, gives the instructions. Kafirs are “unclean” (9:28), “the vilest of beasts” (8:22), on a level with faeces, urine, corpses, blood, semen, pig and dog (islam-laws.com). Jews and Christians follow “remnant cults” of no validity (Manual of Islamic Law, w.4), and are as “apes and pigs” (5:60), “the most despicable” (98:6). Women are instructed not to shake hands with a kafir.

      Muslims inhabit “Dar al Islam”, the House of Islam. Kafirs, on the other hand, inhabit “Dar al Harb”, the House of War: Islam is in a permanent state of war with kafirs. “Kill them… Fight them,” says the Koran, over and over again (www.TheReligionOfPeace.com). The Koran claims that the Jews did “alter the Scripture” (3:78), and the Christians “forgot a portion… so We caused among them animosity and hatred.” (5:14) Both have thus “chosen” not to follow the true path (Arabic “sharia”, path) and are therefore not innocent. If he does not embrace Islam the kafir is available to be killed, his property appropriated, his womenfolk and children enslaved (Koran 9:29; Bukhari 1: 2: 25).

      I am immune to charges of islamophobia. More muslims are killed by other muslims than any other cohort. It’s like Chicago.

      But I AM averse to ascribing a political ideology to thugs who are looking for an excuse – even a fake one – to be thugs.

      —————

      Thankfully (if you’re a leftist with a poor grasp of economics) the team behind Alexandria Ocasio-Ortez’s viral video campaign have come to the rescue. In an interview with Jacobin, Means TV co-founder Nick Hayes explains:

      Means TV is a post-capitalist subscription-based streaming service. It’s cooperatively run, and it’s a direct challenge to capitalism and the establishment entertainment structures. The best parallel is something like Netflix or Hulu. We’re a network that creates original content and acquires content from other people that we feel aligns with our values. We’ll produce and distribute that content with the goal of providing a cooperative platform for socialist writers, filmmakers, comedians, and entertainers.

      I just read a post on another blog by someone in California.

      They’ve had Investor Owned Utilites, IOUs. A new entity has been legislated into existence, the Consumer Choice Alliances. The CCAs are replacing the IOUs and simply taking over their customers. But not the actual provisioning. The actual electric power service, including powerline and grid maintenance, distribution, and billing, is still provided by the IOU.

      The CCAs are committed (ordered by government) to go full renewable. But this guy’s CCA has exactly ONE contract for renewables that involves all of 6 wind turbines to provide 10% of power reqs. And his bill has already increased by 10%. The CCA office is a few people in a month-to-month rental. It’s a shell, charging for a product it doesn’t have and can’t deliver. Total scam.

      From the Daily Mail:-

      Factually in error and I’m sure that they must understand that or confess to be faux- journalists. There was NO suicide belt.There were two explosive devises connected to two vehicles. This moron was not and never has been a Trump supporter. If the dreks at the Daily mail had just read this moron’s manifesto they would have read that his poster boy was President Xi and his ideal nation was none other than the neo-Fascist communistic Peoples’ Republic of CHINA. But the dreks at the Daily Mail were telling political LIES again because the truth would have blown their whole narrative to hell.

      The Daily Mail was FAKE NEWS and was pushing a false narrative that is linked to increasing attacks on the US First and Second Amendments. These covert communist news hounds will tell any lies necessary to advance their perfidious agendas.

      The spokeswoman for ‘Justice Democrats’ clamed to have received 1o,000 applications to get support to run for Congress. She said
      that they got that number down to 79 who they primaried. AOC was one of the 7 who ended up winning seats. That’s BIG money, not just some socialist media start up. I smell Soros & comrades money splintering into different small entities. Soros always takes over countries from the INSIDE. See Justina Trudope, Crystia Freeland, Gerald Butts (eco-facist multimillionaire known as Trudope’s brain)

      This model is meant to be used over and over until they own the meanest most aggressive Commies in Congress. It is a recipe for getting the younger demographic to vote and think they are saving the earth. They want to lower the voting age to 16 up here.

      How many times will subscribers tune into so called comedians who haven’t told a funny joke for over a decade? How many times will they be screening ‘Battleship Potemkin’? How will they COMPETE with free entertainment/ Maybe they will force the comrades to watch with clamps on their eyelids (a la 1984) holding their eyes open!

      We just had a ‘student demo ‘ here in NZ yesterday (somewhat dominated by the massed shootings by a self describer authoritarian Peoples’ Republic of China fanboy) where about 6% of students attended.

      The push here is also to lower the voting age as the education unions have the whip end in socialist indoctrination of the young.

      how old? college or younger? because we just had a bunch of high school kids go ‘on strike’ for the day over climate change.

      I wouldn’t be surprised if soros is behind the curtain. Would be even less surprised to learn he’s not alone.

      My brother is taking Macroeconomics right now. They are talking about Marx and Mills. Hoping maybe they throw in some Smith and Keynes. (Friedman would probably be too much to hope for).

      @ Deplorable Martian Overlord:

      I forget where I heard this. It was the perfect reponse to AOC and her ilk’s idea that the gov’t will just print more money to pay for everything.

      If the gov’t can do that, why are we paying taxes?

      bedtime. ite.

      So does Nancy Pelosi. Works great for the democrats because 16 year olds are perfectly aged to buy into the state-run school indoctrination and rebel against their parents’ positions. Also, I will bet that voting is going to be considered worth school credit, so the turnout will be large

      Primary 5-12year olds as well as intermediate 13-14 and secondly 15-18. The ‘student organiser was 20 so either she is a’ ring in’ adult activist or a really really thick high school student. The Usual Green / Labour socialists / Neo-Marxists were there in droves ‘controlling their little charges.

      They good news is that 94% of schoolies stayed in their classrooms and out on the street the demos fell flat when the cops sent everyone home or to secure locations because of the shooting. That totally stole the oxygen away from the demo., and the whole thing disintegrated.

      The Rumjacks‘ “An Irish Pub Song” is “a piss take at the explosion of Irish Pubs in Australia and the bastardisation of a culture.
      From the lyrics posted on the Utoobage:

      There’s a county map to go on the wall,
      A hurling stick & a shinty ball,
      The bric, the brac, the craic & all,
      Lets call it an Irish pub.

      Caffreys, Harp, Kilkenny on tap,
      The Guinness pie & that cabbage crap,
      The ideal wannabee Paddy trap,
      We’ll call it an Irish pub.

      You get the idea. On the other hand, my favorite Irish rebel song was a broadside set to music: Nell Flaherty’s Drake. It’s got some of the best snarky curses I’ve ever read. Here’s The Clancy Brothers’ version.

      Just 30 hours after this terrorist attack the NZ elites are promising to change the already rigid gun ownership laws. It looks likely that all semi-autos, either rifles or shotguns will be made illegal.The security agencies here have been getting hits in the head because they didn’t have any file on this killer. Ummmm That’s what happens in a free society when someone doesn’t do anything illegal…. until he does! It’s the price of freedom I’m afraid. The options are to begin files on ALL citizens and go to a Chinese Authoritarian society. I know that the left would LOVE that sort of power. Then they could bring charges of ‘Pre-Crime’ against anyone who might harbour thoughts that go against State policy.

      That is what is happening in China as we speak.

      John McCain has been gone long enough to acknowledge that he was a heroic young man , but morphed into a nasty old corrupt quisling.

      @ RIX:

      We knew McCain was made aware of the dossier while on a trip to the UK and that after he came home, he dispatched an aide back there to get a copy. We never knew the name of the aide. He publicly admitted he gave it to the FBI. It’s always been suspected he was one of the leaks but nothing direct.

      Another story that’s being pushed as ‘new’ is this little doxxer prick whose from the Hill from a family w/ties to Feinstein. That’s been known for over a year, I remember posting about it, it’s not until now that the MSM has picked up on it.

      I’ve been racking my brain for a few days after listening again to AOC saying ‘ambition’ is viewed as naivite, ‘moderate’ is cycnical, etc. etc. The whole schtick is so familiar. I’ve heard it before, in a more militant form, but I’m old enough to remember ‘back in the day’, when the bombs were going off for real. And I could place it, couldn’t nail it down.

      And, as I was falling asleep last nite, it bubbled up.

      Protest is when I say this does not please me.
      Resistance is when I ensure what does not please me occurs no more

      Ulrike Meinhoff

      Her packaging is a bit more pleasant, but every now and then, the corners come loose and you hear “Until then, I’m the boss, how about THAT”

      The Today show aired another piece on my musher, Blair Braverman, this morning. I have to say, Harry Smith has been charming about covering this as has his producer. They check in with us to clarify things and we told him he HAD to cover the charity work we’ve been doing if he did another piece. So he did.

      Here’s this morning’s piece on #uglydogs

      Ulrike Meinhoff! I can’t believe you remember those mostly affluent violent German thugs. Another iteration is Bill Ayers (“Guilty as sin. Free as a bird.”) when his fancy lawyers got him off of murder charges as a Weatherman. From the Rockefellers to the Clintons, these foundations live tax free while subverting democracy.

      At least the Mafia didn’t claim to be Philanthropists.
