Dirty Science

Not just on the paranormal, which is huge, but on global warming/climate change, also. Which President Turnip Head will now enshrine in our taxes. With Lurch playing majordomo.

FEMA slow as ever

Now that the Texas electric grid is stabilized, FEMA is sending diesel generators. Bottled water would help more.

UPDATE: Finally, millions of bottles of bottled water, with the help of the Defense Department and the Texas National Guard

Bronco’s third term

Navarro: DOJ slow-walked Trump’s executive orders while fast-tracking Biden’s. No surprise. Obama had eight years to stock the DOJ with loyalists and these Dimocrat bureaucrats are now on his third term. You didn’t really think that dumb-as-a-rock Biden was running things?

The Vanishing Documents

The long reach of the Deep State

Or else it was an inside-Fox job. Chris Wallace, maybe?

UPDATE: UPS found the paper documents but still can’t locate the flash drive containing them and more, according to Tucker Carlson.

Resign, Milley, resign

Imagine it. The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Army four-star Mark Milley, whacks President Trump in the NYSlimes. Officially interfering in the 2020 election.

You sorry, insubordinate paper soldier and swamp creature, you should resign immediately if not sooner. G-d help us if you’t.

UPDATE: PJMedia’s Joel Pollack: “For months, retired senior military leaders have made public comments suggesting that Trump ought to be removed from office, “the sooner, the better.” Last week, former Secretary of Defense James Mattis joined the others.

“With violent protesters surrounding the White House, these statements were ill-timed, at best. But the question remained how deeply the effort to delegitimize Trump pervaded the military leadership. [Milley’s] apology suggests a troubling answer…As a result of his needless apology, no matter what happens in November, the losing side will blame the military.”

1968 deja vu

Pentagon officials, the Secdef and even some retired generals are fussing about using active-duty troops to put down rioting, burnings and looting.

Back in 1968, when the race riots after Dr. King’s murder were much worse than what the George Floyd protests have spawned, we in the active-duty Sixth Armored Cavalry Regiment at Fort Meade, Maryland, were training to put down riots in Baltimore and DC. We were never called.

In early 1969, we spent all day at the DC Guard armory, with rifles, pistols and bayonets, waiting to be called to protect President Nixon’s inauguration. No retired generals were fussing about it then that we ever heard. It turned out we were not needed. But we were ready to go if we were.

Of course, in those days, the National Guard was full of insubordinate draft-dodgers and pretty useless. Today’s Guard is full of combat veterans. And, in 1968, the press wasn’t as adversarial as it has been since President Trump was elected and retired generals weren’t as outspoken against the commander-in-chief. It’s unlikely the 1968 press would have given them much publicity if they were. Today, every anti-Trumper is a hero to the Leftist news media. And the Pentagon knows it has a competent Guard.

Vote Dim Get China

The House’s $3 trillion stimulus bill contains a nasty twisty surprise.

“Chapter 83 of Title 41, United States Code is none other than the Buy American Act. That 1933 law prioritizes American manufacturers over others when the government makes purchases. The Trump administration strengthened the Buy American act last year. The Democrats’ bill would waive it permanently, allowing the government to purchase more goods from overseas, unrestricted.

“Advantage: China, the world’s manufacturing hub. Disadvantage: Americans who want to work making things.”

Somebody on the take much? You betcha.
