Don’t have my Wuhan swab back, Mrs Coldwarrior is positive, I feel great…surgery on the blown shoulder next week…can’t go back to work until I get the swab results back, add that to pending W/C surgery on Wednesday, and well…I’m in covid jail. Made some excellent Stromboli on the new smoker today…putzed around the joint…made a great martini and had a nice cigar…I abide.

 

Enjoy this open

    this is where i miss my 77 bronco with the lift kit. bt its ok, we’ve got a lovely old beater explorer outfitted just for snow. a waste you say, yeah… g’ma and pappap live in the middle of the snow belt and i’d rather not trash my benz or mrs coldarrior’s new ride trying to get in there versus a lake erie gale.

    the lakes wont freeze over this year, all of the weather is coming out of the south / west this time instead of the north/northwest. this is what they guys predicted for the winter some sort of nina or some such

    i just wonder, are the dems trying to push the normal american voter into going for fascism? and i dont mean the left wing crap that hitler was into, but something akin to il duce or the falange were into like national syndicalist production and ‘religious’ nationalism.

    Political suicide in slow motion

    Let’s get some truth on the record: @Liz_Cheney has a hell of a lot more backbone than most, & is a principled leader with a fierce intellect. She will continue to be a much needed leader in the conference, with my full support.

    We can disagree without tearing eachother apart.

    after 2 years of trump, they were all rah! rah!. god, the arguments i used to get into in the men’s grill. but…now i;m right. and a few of them want me to run for office.

    no fucking way in hell. BWAHAHAAAAAAA!!!!

    One of the reasons I’ve said that I’d never live in a place like NYC. If something shuts down the transportation system (like an EMP, for instance) for more than 3 days, they have no food. I haven’t seen a lot of farming going on in Manhattan.

    https://www.marshall.senate.gov/newsroom/press-releases/breaking-sen-marshall-proves-fauci-lied-by-obtaining-previously-unpublished-financial-records/

    U.S. Senator Roger Marshall today obtained Dr. Anthony Fauci’s previously unpublished financial disclosures from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The NIH released the documents to Senator Marshall after a HELP hearing earlier this week where Dr. Fauci misled the American people and said, “My financial disclosures are public knowledge, and have been so. It is totally accessible to you, if you want it. To the public.” Since the disclosures were not public, on Wednesday, Senator Marshall sent a letter to Dr. Fauci formally requesting his un-redacted financial disclosures by 5:00pm Friday, January 14th. In response, Dr. Fauci produced these previously unpublished documents.

    “Dr. Fauci lied to the American people. He is more concerned with being a media star and posing for the cover of magazines than he is being honest with the American people and holding China accountable for the COVID pandemic that has taken the lives of almost 850 thousand Americans,” said Senator Marshall. “Just like he has misled the American people about sending taxpayers dollars to Wuhan, China to fund gain-of-function research, about masks, testing, and more, Dr. Fauci was completely dishonest about his financial disclosures being open to the public – it’s no wonder he is the least trusted bureaucrat in America. At the end of the day, Dr. Fauci must be held accountable to all Americans who have been suing and requesting for this information but don’t have the power of a Senate office to ask for it. For these reasons, I will be introducing the FAUCI Act so financial disclosures like these are made public and are easily accessible online to every American.”

    With extreme prejudice. He has been a real disappointment. … and over such a stupid thing. He chose defending Liz Cheney as the hill to die on? Really? One of his caucus who sided with Nancy Pelosi over a political witch hunt? Nothing principled in that at all.

    @ eaglesoars:
    I’ve been keeping eyes on prices and stocking up on canned goods as they come on sale. Was in work today to grab a few small items, (I’ve been off for the past week taking care of the squire due to school closures), and ended up walking out with a picnic shoulder of pork for $25 CAD. I wept at the lack of storage at home. Wife went to Costco this week and picked up two boneless pork loin tubes for around $20. Needless to say the picnic shoulder is at least three to four times the size of the pork loins.

    Everything else is just crazy expensive. Cheap bacon goes for about $7 for 350 grams, regular cuts start at over $10 a kilogram. Butter? looking at $6 a pound. Some sales aren’t even really a proper sale.

    Had my smoking game upped a huge notch. Youngest brother sent me a probe kit with a wireless thermometer. Four probes, an injector and clips. Can get a true reading of the interior and constant readout on three cuts of meat. Used it on the Christmas turkey and it came out perfectly. Also smoked two batches of cheese when it was cold outside and now they are aging in vac sealed bags.

    Next on my smoking agenda is Canadian bacon. Have some pork loin curing in the fridge currently to be smoked before freezing. Will be doing a cold smoke. Figure I will save a good chunk of change doing that.

    oh, listen…i started on the smokers in 92 after i got out of the army. i had to drive to viginia from PGH to get one. this unit is my 4th? i still have my last beast, an ungodly heavy oklahoma joe side smoker…full on fire, smoke, and meat. i have that mapped out perfectly and can use it almost mindlessly. the drawback, if i want to do a brisket for a saturday party i have to man it all night friday night…ok when i was younger, but jeeze, i need to sleep!

    so, a few years ago i got a pit boss vertical pellet smoker as proof of concept, yinz know, set it and forget it. well, i wrecked it after using it 3-4 days a week for 4 years. it wasn’t built for what i did with it.

    so for christmas, my girls bought me the trump version of he pit boss horizontal pellet smoker, its YUGE and heavy!!! i’ve used it a few times but i’m not at the temp mapping accuracy that i need yet for an expensive piece of meat like a prime rib.

    dude, i have several temp probe units, an IR gun, and this beast has 4 probes and wifi…it will get to 500F plus in 35F ambient.

    i’m still learning how to use the reactor.

    General Electric Suspends Vaccine Requirement After Supreme Court Ruling

    General Electric, one of America’s largest employers, announced on Friday that it has suspended its coronavirus vaccine or test requirement for its employees after the U.S. Supreme Court blocked Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate for large businesses this week.

    “The maker of jet engines, wind turbines and medical scanners confirmed the decision Friday via email,” Bloomberg News reported. “GE is the first major company to announce a halt after the court’s decision Thursday to block the centerpiece of President Joe Biden’s push to boost Covid-19 vaccinations.”

    Google Executive in Charge of ‘Tackling Disinformation’ Becomes DHS Senior Leader

    Jon Feere, who was the senior advisor to the director of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) during the Trump administration, has raised concerns about the appointment.

    “The Biden administration is fully aware that their anti-borders policies 
are wildly unpopular, so their selection of a person who has spent her time 
eliminating opinions online is certainly suspect,” Feere told The Epoch Times via email.

    “She’s now playing a key role in the release of thousands of criminal aliens into our communities and will naturally see a lot of pushback on this horrific agenda,” he said.

    “It wouldn’t be surprising to her see former Google colleagues help her out by expanding their definition of ‘anti-migrant’ and further stifling speech online,” he continued.

    ‘Grateful to Be Alive’: What We Know About the Synagogue Hostage Rescue

    The authorities have identified the suspect, a British citizen, who was killed when the hostages at a synagogue in the Dallas-Fort Worth area were freed on Saturday night.

    The F.B.I.’s hostage rescue team freed four hostages from a Texas synagogue on Saturday night after a harrowing day of threats, negotiations and prayers.

    The suspect is dead, officials said, and his motives are still under investigation.

    His motives are still under investigation? Seriously?

    Another asshat from the FBI said that there was no apparent connection to the “Jewish community.” Nope…we have no idea why a crazed Muslim would take Jews hostage. Must be a Trump supporter or something.

    It’s snowing! Big, fat flakes, lovely.

    This is a great article about the impracticalities of electric vehicles. Funny as hell, too. Well, if you like schadenfreude.

    “If you’ve got cars coming into a petrol station, they would stay for an average of five minutes. If you’ve got cars coming into an electric charging station, they would be at least 30 minutes, possibly an hour, but let’s say its 30 minutes. So that’s six times the surface area to park the cars while they’re being charged. So, multiply every petrol station in a city by six. Where are you going to find the place to put them?”
    .
    .
    In particular, the latest UK chargers will be pre-set to not function during 9-hours of peak loads, from 8 am to 11 am (3-hours), and 4 pm to 10 pm (6-hours). Unbelievably, the UK technology decides when and if an EV can be charged, and even allows EV batteries to be drained into the UK grid if required. Imagine charging your car all night only to discover in the morning that your battery is flat since the state took the power back.

    Newly Discovered Type of “Strange Metal” – Material That Shares Fundamental Quantum Attributes With Black Holes

    https://scitechdaily.com/newly-discovered-type-of-strange-metal-material-that-shares-fundamental-quantum-attributes-with-black-holes/

    Now, a research team co-led by a Brown University physicist has added a new discovery to the strange metal mix. In research published in the journal Nature, the team found strange metal behavior in a material in which electrical charge is carried not by electrons, but by more “wave-like” entities called Cooper pairs.

    While electrons belong to a class of particles called fermions, Cooper pairs act as bosons, which follow very different rules from fermions.

    End were all taught totally misleading theories that involved atoms looking like small solar systems with electrons orbiting the nucleus. This was total bunk and those who taught it knew since the early part of the 1900s that it was bunk. For crying out aloud they even taught us about the famous twin slit experiment which undercut what they were saying about electrons that looked like hard little ballbearings. When we asked how come…. we were a cunning bunch …. the conversation was immediately CHANGED!

    Sheesh…

    I was lecturing kids from 4 P (as in A,B,C,D,E,F,G…… at Auckland Grammar year before last. They were the bottom of ALL pecking orders but they were able to hoist aboard the basics of Quantum theory, they realised that electrons were a manifestation of a probability wave, and we discussed where Hawking radiation came from around Black Holes. They were able to understand a whole lot as long as it was explained clearly and in basic language. Things like electricity doesn’t travel down wires but that wires acted like railway tracks that located an energy field in space. Electrons do NOT travel at the speed of light, in fact they are rather slow and drift slowly amongst the atoms of copper in the wire.

    People REALLY underestimate kids and their ability to understand things that are assumed to be way beyond them.

    🙂

    We used to fly through the curriculum stuff, so that we left time to go running barefoot through Astronomy Physics and chemistry going wherever the conversation and questions led us. The kids really loved these free ranging discussions and worked their butts off getting past the curriculum stuff, to leave time for our end of session period talks that ranged all over the place. Just throw in some subject and the questions and thoughts about where those questions came from and suddenly we were away, and the talk swept across huge slabs of science.

    It was quite wonderful to see the 4P class kids (14 year olds) getting really excited using their brains and imaginations.

    Michigan Democrats criticized after dismissing parents’ role in public education

    The Democratic Party blasted the idea that parents should have a voice in what public schools teach, saying in a Facebook post over the weekend that public education teaches kids what society “needs them to know.”

    A Saturday post made by the Michigan Democrats on their official Facebook page criticized the parents who want to play a role in what public education teaches their children. The post was deleted Monday morning after intense criticism.

    “Not sure where this ‘parents-should-control-what-is-taught-in-schools-because-they-are-our-kids’ is originating, but parents do have the option to send their kids to a hand-selected private school at their own expense if this is what they desire,” the post read.

    “The purpose of public education in public schools is not to teach kids only what parents want them to be taught,” the Michigan Democratic Party’s post continued. “It is to teach them what society needs them to know. The client of the public school is not the parent, but the entire community, the public.”

You pick out a card, then see another one you like better and try to remember where you got the first, rejected, card and try to put it back correctly.

    If you can’t locate where you got the now rejected card from you put it back in somewhere there is a space. At least they try to get the correct section.

    Fresh off the presses regarding the Aussie Tennis ……

    From Quadrant article….

    Immigration Minister Alex Hawke :
    “I have given consideration to the fact that Mr Djokovic is a high profile unvaccinated individual who has indicated publicly that he is opposed to becoming vaccinated against COVID-19,” Mr Hawke writes.

    “In addition, I consider that Mr Djokovic’s ongoing presence in Australia may lead to an increase in anti-vaccination sentiment generated in the Australian community, potentially leading to an increase in civil unrest of the kind previously experienced in Australia with rallies and protests which may themselves be a source of community transmission.”

    As to the actual threat to public health posed by an uninfected individual who happens to be in superb physical condition and can be assumed to have a degree of immunity as a result of a recent COVID infection, Minister Hawke has the good grace to concede it is below negligble.

    But the real infection — the mere possibility that Australians might dare to question officialdom’s COVID policies — well that is the genuine peril as far as Mr Hawke is concerned.

    Who knows where it might lead if Djokovic were to be permitted the right to knock balls about Rod Laver Arena?

    By Mr Hawke’s account, there might be an upswelling of resentment at two years lost to contradictory policies, hollow assurances, closed-border chaos, curfews, lockdowns, fines, false promises, closed schools, shuttered businesses, ruined lives and, especially in Victoria, unrestrained and officially encouraged police thuggery.

    CEO of Moderna says for future yearly boosters, the plan is to have one single vaccine combined with the flu shot.

    This will help with “compliance issues.” as he mentions people don’t want to take 2-3 shots per winter.

That third woman was 18 at the time of the Bahamas trip, but investigators are also looking into whether she was 17 when the sexual relationship began.

    ** they are going to try to determine the date he first had sex with the 17-18 year old and also if he paid any expenses for any of the three women for the trip. An old associated of his was convicted of trafficking last may.

Under the extreme state of emergency that our loser governor has stated that if parents do not comply with any order that comes down from him, their children can be taken away from them. Idahoans would lose all their parental rights. You would not know where your kids are, what they would be given and all building code rules would be null and void and that can house thousands of kids in deplorable circumstances. Dont worry, we are just stupid Idaho. Idaho is not a red state anymore.

    Michigan Democrats criticized after dismissing parents’ role in public education

    The Democratic Party blasted the idea that parents should have a voice in what public schools teach, saying in a Facebook post over the weekend that public education teaches kids what society “needs them to know.”

    A Saturday post made by the Michigan Democrats on their official Facebook page criticized the parents who want to play a role in what public education teaches their children. The post was deleted Monday morning after intense criticism.

    “Not sure where this ‘parents-should-control-what-is-taught-in-schools-because-they-are-our-kids’ is originating, but parents do have the option to send their kids to a hand-selected private school at their own expense if this is what they desire,” the post read.

    “The purpose of public education in public schools is not to teach kids only what parents want them to be taught,” the Michigan Democratic Party’s post continued. “It is to teach them what society needs them to know. The client of the public school is not the parent, but the entire community, the public.”

    Loved that little bit in there about parents can send their kids to private school at their own expense whil they still have to pay the taxes for public schools

    White House Pursuing Joe Biden Communications Reboot as Polls Collapse

    The White House is planning a new communications strategy, as President Joe Biden faces a total collapse of his approval ratings.

    Citing “senior administration officials,” NBC News reported Tuesday the White House is exploring new ways to communicate directly with the American people.

    Advisers expressed the need for Biden to “talk to more people directly,” instead of “one-dimensional” speeches from the White House, the report revealed, citing “his greatest political strength” as “empathy and an ability to connect with ordinary Americans.”

    Their request was filed to Justice Neil Gorsuch, who handles emergency applications arising in several Western states, and he referred the matter to the full court. The justices denied the request without comment or noted dissent.

    Diabetic liberal Justice Sonia Sotomayor, 67, is attending Supreme court remotely because Republican Neil Gorsuch ‘refuses to wear a mask’

    Last fall, the court resumed in-person arguments for the first time, and none chose to wear a mask except Justice Sonia Sotomayor

    When the court returned to the bench following the Omicron surge, Sotomayor made it clear she did not feel safe unless her colleagues were masked

    Roberts then reportedly asked the other justices to mask up so that Sotomayor could return, but Gorsuch, who sits directly next to her, remained obstinate

    Putin may ‘have a go’ in the Ukraine, around May, when the ice has melted and the mud has dried. He’s currently moving landing craft out of the Baltic but it’s a VERY long way for landing craft to transit… across the baltic, into the North Sea, down the North Atlantic coast, turn left at the Gib and into the Med, across the Med and through the Strait into the Black Sea and finally across the Black Sea to Crimea or the Sea of Asov to collect their passengers. That will take some time! I’m guessing May at the earliest.

    With Germany looking more like a vacuum than a leader of the EU, France and Macron with elections in a few months, Italy looking for German leadership and finding zip, but with Russian gas supplies keeping Italy warm. Only the Poles and the Balts seem ready to support the Ukes. Putin will brush them aside. The US has been having overflight problems with Berlin because their C-5 are carrying ATGMs for the anti-armor forces in Ukraine. With Biden out to lunch permanently and with 2022 US elections still 9 months away this is Putin’s opportunity.

    People saying Russia is at the threat level of a Spain, but the US succumbed to the threat level of rural Afghanistan. All Russia has to do is say they will look away if China threatens Taiwan. In exchange for China getting its Gen Miley asset to redirect defense money. China could also just release another virus variant into all these Olympic Athletes and take territory while the Karens complain.

    THAT is a serious possibility. With Xian (13.2 million population) and a dozen other cities in serious lockdown and a new Covid variant within 120 Km of Beijing, the Winter Olympics is an ideal opportunity to spread this new virus globally. This isn’t the first time that China has followed this scenario. Remember the October Military ‘Games’ in Beijing in 2019, where many of the participants from the US and Europe, took home not just prizes but the Covid-19 virus as well. Not well reported but it’s out there.

    Xi figures if the ‘long noses’ are dumb enough, why not do the same thing to them again? This time it’ll not be soldiers who bring the infection home, it’ll be athletes.

    It is not yet true that every state is a border state but it is true that Texas, NM, et. al. are and their governors are in the cross hairs

    Video footage recently surfaced on Twitter showing C4 explosives being dropped by a drone near a town in Michoacán, Mexico, reportedly by members of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel, following hours of clashes between armed groups.

    In the video, a small explosion hits a woodland camp, a cluster of tents amid dense trees and dirt roads. Men scatter, running for cover. Another volley of explosives is released. When it hits, the camp erupts in flames. The drone lingers, its camera darting around, zooming in and out over the camp as it burns, like it’s looking for something. Seconds later, the drone is shot out of the sky.

    It’s the kind of video clip that surfaces on social media now and then, offering a glimpse of outlandish happenings in Mexico. Most Americans have no way of making sense of these videos, or imagining what they portend.

    Yup:

    California Democrat McNerney won’t seek re-election, opening seat to Rep. Josh Harder

    Rep. Jerry McNerney, the long-time Democratic representative for areas surrounding Stockton in the San Joaquin Valley, will not seek re-election in his home district at the end of his term, his office announced.

    “I will keep working for the people of my district throughout the remainder of my term and look forward to new opportunities to continue to serve,” McNerney said in a release.

    McNerney’s decision not to run in California’s 9th Congressional District opens the door for Rep. Josh Harder, D-Turlock, to run for re-election in a fairly safe Democratic seat. It holds San Joaquin County in a stretch from Collierville to Manteca and Tracy.

    Harder’s seat centered on Stanislaus County changed significantly through California’s once-a-decade redistricting process. He had been representing parts of San Joaquin County that are set to be in what would be McNerney’s district.

    “Jerry, thank you for your incredible service to our community,” Harder said in a release following McNerney’s announcement. “Today, I’m humbled to share I will be running for reelection in CA-9 which encompasses parts of mine and Jerry’s districts. More than 150 years ago, my great-great-grandpa joined a wagon train to California and settled in Manteca to start a peach farm and raise his family.”

    Harder leaves the 13th Congressional District that holds much of his hometown of Turlock, parts of Modesto and Merced. It is rated as a tighter election by expert analysts, though one that leans Democratic.

    NEW: A statement from Justices Sotomayor and Gorsuch:

    “Reporting that Justice Sotomayor asked Justice Gorsuch to wear a mask surprised us. It is false. While we may sometimes disagree about the law, we are warm colleagues and friends.”

    oh, THAT Frank. Sorry. Even tho I’m mostly ambulatory, brain fog is hanging around. I rarely get colds and when I do, they’re about a week or less. This one is slowly dying at 13 days or something.

    Awww. Sorry to hear that. Loads of lemon and honey hot drinks and Vicks inhalations will fix most colds. Head colds are easy to kill off.

    My 90-year-old mothers COD was listed as Covid.

    I’ll buy Covid as a contributing factor, but at 90 after having intestinal surgery, it just seems unlikely that’s the main reason. Still, FEMA will reimburse for her cremation, so I just have to fill out some paperwork.

    I can’t get pork. So, home made is the only way to go. But, pigs feet only run about 10 bucks for 2 or three and that boils up a huge pot of stock so, pretty cost effective. Just the time put in that is a problem, but if I have nothing better to do…

    Montgomery County MD council just got the dragon treatment from Bethany Mandel. Pure. Fire.

    So everyone here is going to tell you why this is bad for businesses and for residents. I’m here to tell you why this is bad for you as politicians. This is gonna be the end of your cushy government bureaucratic careers.

    Here’s the thing. The seats for this council are up for a primary vote in June. That’s the deciding election in this county. An election the only truly motivated people bother to vote in during off-election years. Unfortunately for you, you’ve made us care. And we’ve filled these speaking slots within three minutes of them opening.

    For those of you who are facing term limits, we’re coming for your seats. For those of you who plan to run again, we’re coming for yours. This resolution is the final straw for a number of businesses, groups and individuals in this county who have seen you come close to destroying everything they’ve built.

    They’re willing to put money behind getting a council who won’t try to bankrupt them and, by extension, the county. If you’re a business or individual looking to make change, contact me. And if you’re interested in running for one of these seats, contact me too.

    We’ve started contacting lawyers about a legal challenge to this poorly thought out law if you pass it. The SCOTUS just knocked down the OSHA mandate. Do you want the black eye involved in national tension on this amateur attempt at lawmaking?

    Why is the FBI at the home of Rep. Cuellar?

    The FBI is conducting what it described as “court-authorized” law enforcement activity at the Laredo home of U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar…

    “The FBI was present in the vicinity of Windridge Drive and Estate Drive in Laredo conducting court-authorized law enforcement activity,” the [FBI] statement read. “The FBI cannot provide further comment on an ongoing investigation.”

    At Cuellar’s home, located in the 8200 block of Estate Drive, federal vehicles were seen with cases and other items taken from the congressman’s home as over a dozen agents filed in and out of the residence Wednesday afternoon.

    Supermarkets Report Food Shortages After Canada Imposes Trucker Vax Mandate


    Overwhelmed supply chains and truck driver shortages worsened when Canada imposed new border mandates prohibiting unvaccinated American truckers. With low vaccination rates among US drivers, Canadian supermarkets are already reporting rising food inflation and shortages of certain products, according to Bloomberg.
    .
    .
    The situation will only worsen on Jan. 22 when the US begins imposing its vaccine mandate on Canadian truckers. The Canadian Trucking Association warned the mandate would sideline up to 16,000 truckers.

    Canadian truck drivers are furious with the US decision and have blocked the highway near the US-Manitoba international border to protest the new mandates. Videos posted on social media show the chaos playing out on the other side of the border.

    No clue where Buttigieg is on this…..

    We are the hostage negotiators on behalf of America to discuss with the government about what to do since no one else has volunteered. We have to talk to the government about a return to normalcy because they are not going to do it. They are too cowardly. So it’s up to us to actually say this is what we want. February 1st, we are done.

    The latest aircraft radar altimeters are not effected. However older aircraft radar altimeters ARE not as shielded and the 5G signals cause them to give false readings …. just when false readings are the LAST thing you need, as the ground approached the undercarriage to break your fall!
    🙂

    In bad weather … (like now in the US, where old aircraft fly)…. aircraft need instrument approaches like ILS (Instrument Landing System) to get aircraft back onto the ground in crappy weather. 5G messing with radar altimeter signals can have ‘unfortunate’ results !

    🙂
