This is another of the W.O.O.D. series of semi-regular
Weekly Occasional Open Discussions.
(i.e. if I forget and skip one, no big)
Immediate prior one here:
and remains open for threads running there (at least until the ‘several month’ auto-close of comments on stale threads).
Canonical list of old ones here:
I’m deprecating the use of “tips” pages. As the open discussion pages caught on, tips dropped off. For a month or two now I’ve not had a “tips” page put up, and nobody seems to have noticed. Then this last month folks started using the last TIPS page again. So do I need to bring them back? All the old ones remain for historical reference:
What’s Going On?
Hyperventilating Impeachment Follies Begin
The hyperventilating and emotionally unstable Dimocrats have decided to impeach POTUS Trump for doing his job.
Why? Because they want to cover up that Joe Biden helped his kid graft off about $Billion (mostly as investment funds but with at least $Millions to the Biden pocket) AND to have a distraction from the AG report pointing out their illegalities, malfeasance, and flat out criminality in the 2016 election and prior. All in my opinion, of course.
What did Trump do? Asked for help with the 2016 “Russian Interference” investigation (CroudStrike) and the “Russian” interference that started (in the origination) from Ukraine. He also did due diligence to feel out if the Ukrainians were still as corrupt as they were prior to the present President, found them not corrupt, and released the aid money (ALL Without the Ukrainians knowing about any delay in funding). Then, when the Ukrainians had brought up the issue of corruption and prosecutors, basically said it was OK with us if they wanted to investigate the corruption, including that of Biden.
NONE of those is a crime of any sort and certainly not a “high crime”. Under the US / Ukraine treaty on mutual support in investigations they are, in fact, required duties.
So now we will be treated to the most extreme histrionics, most hyperventilating press reports, and most abusive “House Committee Investigations” on Earth, all over a completely fabricated hit piece in the Soft Coup by the Democrats
I hope the Republicans can gather enough courage to actually do something about this extraordinary abuse of power. IF they do not, I’ll only be voting for those who do support Trump. The rest are worthless.
It has become very clear that the D.C.Swamp is way more corrupt, immoral, and evil than thought. Felon Hillary gets not even a nasty letter, while Trump is roasted in the docks for doing his job? OK, noted.
For the first time ever I feel like jumping in the car and standing in front of Congress with a sign saying “You lying, cheating, immoral bastards.” Frankly, if some other country decided to bomb congress. I’m pretty sure I’d not lose much sleep over it now. It isn’t like NYC where people felt some connection. I’m very very slow to anger, and I’m not prone to much emotional state at all, really.
But right now? Right now I have zero respect for any Democrat Politicians or their Media Lap Dogs and I’m getting a “slow burn” going toward the House Democrats. Watching Pelosi, Shiff, and Nadler is like watching an Evil Three Stooges. They wouldn’t know a moral pang if they felt one. I’ve not seen a single Democrat stand up and say “This is wrong” or “This is an illegal railroading” or even “This is stupid, we are already campaigning for the next election”.
The Evil goes way deeper than Epstein.
BREXIT – Or Ought I Say Surrender Bill?
Parliament is back, the Supremes are on side, HM Lizzy is taking a nap, and Boris is up in the polls while reviled in London.
In theory, this is the last month of this mess. The British people are sick of it with Just LEAVE now polling almost 60%.
I suspect if an election were held now Boris would be crowned Princeling rather than just elected.
So we’ve got a Deep State / Globalist battle running from the USA to the UK and on to other nations, too.
FUD Watch – Fear, Uncertainty, & Doubt
Gargoyle Gretta was screwing up her face and trying mightily to look evil, pissed, and like an angry God. Hard to pull off as a young girl, it came across as petulant, nagging, and emotionally disturbed. But Afraid, yes, very Afraid.
I thought child abuse was illegal?
Space: The Last, and Next Frontier
SpaceX Starship prototype is fully stacked. Likely about a month more of interior work before they can start test hops.
Watch that space space.
Saudi War Escalates?
Anyone remember when war in Yemen, attacks on a Saudi Oil facility happened, and Syria was a thing?
Strange how they have just fallen entirely off the radar. Yet they have not gone away, have they?
Seems to e running down with a whimper. Still possible, but I think it’s time to start looking at snow season.
We’ve got massive snow dumps starting. So many I’m not tracking them. From Alaska to Montana to Colorado. Even had a bit of early snow in California.
It’s looking to me like this is the year that the winter starts early and hard, and stays late.
LOTS of midwest crops were planted late, and many don’t fully ripen until the end of October. This early start to snow means some of those will be lost, many will be frosted early or harvested runted. There will also be a lot of fall / winter crops and planting that won’t happen as there isn’t time between the end of harvest and the start of snow.
I don’t expect a food panic yet, but we will likely see the start of the change to shorter seasons and larger “one crop a year” areas.
Deep State Skate
Rumor (on the news) is that indictments will happen “Real Soon Now” and that something like 130 “Staffers” have had some kind of notice of wrongdoing with sending email to Hillary Clinton on a private mail server or misclassifying documents.
One can only hope this section expands. Soon.
Yeah, it is still “a thing” even if not top of the non-news MSM.
