The Survivalist’s Odds ‘n Sods

SurvivalBlog presents another edition of The Survivalist’s Odds ‘n Sods— a collection of news bits and pieces that are relevant to the modern survivalist and prepper from “JWR”. Our goal is to educate our readers, to help them to recognize emerging threats, and to be better prepared for both disasters and negative societal trends. You can’t mitigate a risk if you haven’t first identified a risk. Today, we take another look at invasive Murder Hornets.

Chicago Charts the COVID-19 Comorbidities

Our Editor-At-Large Michael Z. Williamson sent us this data from Cook County, Illinois: Corona Comorbidities.

Are There More Murder Hornet Nests?

Reader C.B. spotted this troubling news: Destruction of murder hornets nest doesn’t end threat. The article begins thusly:

“When scientists in Washington state destroyed the first nest of so-called murder hornets found in the U.S., they discovered about 500 live specimens in various stages of development, officials said Tuesday.

Among them were nearly 200 queens that had the potential to start their own nests, said Sven-Erik Spichiger, an entomologist leading the fight to kill the hornets.

“We got there just in the nick of time,″ he said.

Still, that didn’t end the threat from the that can deliver painful though rarely deadly stings to people and wipe out entire hives of honey bees.

Scientists think other nests already exist and say it’s impossible to know if any queens escaped before the first was destroyed.

Asian giant hornets, an invasive pest not native to the U.S., are the world’s largest at 2 inches (5 centimeters) long, and a predator of other insects, including the honey bees that pollinate many of the crops in Washington’s multi-billion-dollar agriculture industry.”

Trump Lawyer Sidney Powell Predicts Court Action on Election

H.L. was the first of several readers to send us this: Trump Lawyer Sidney Powell: “We’re Getting Ready To Overturn Election Results In Multiple States”.

Florida Governor Proposes Expanded Stand Your Ground Law

Reader Tim J. sent us this: Gov. DeSantis proposes bill expanding Stand Your Ground law. Here is a snippet:

“DeSantis announced the proposal Tuesday, continuing his pledge from September to “crack down on violent and disorderly assemblies” in response to police brutality protests.

The proposal would expand the list of “forcible felonies” under Florida’s self-defense law to include property crimes. It would also make blocking traffic a third-degree felony and give immunity to drivers who “unintentionally” hit protesters blocking traffic.”

Hikers Find Century-Old Carrier Pigeon Note

A New York Times piece sent to us by regular link contributor D.S.V.: You’ve Got (Century-Old) Mail: Soldier’s Note Is Echo of World War I Era. The article’s subhead:

ATF Director Conspiring with Biden Team on Arm Braces

Pat Cascio wrote to mention that the NRA-ILA had this almost predictable news: BATFE Leadership Push Biden to Target Pistol Stabilizing Braces and Unfinished ReceiversJWR’s Comments:  Please contact your senators and congressmen repeatedly and insist that they draft legislation protecting our lawful ownership pistol and “firearm” arm braces. There were only a few hundred thousand of the banned bumpfire stocks made. But there are more than 4 million arm braces now in circulation. At an average cost of $190 each, that is $760 million dollars worth.  (More than three-quarters of a billion bucks.) So banning them would not be trivial. An outright ban with no grandfather clause would be an uncompensated Federal Regulatory “Taking” in violation of the Fifth Amendment, on a grand scale. And requiring Federal registration would absolutely swamp and backlog the ATF’s NFA Branch — probably for a decade or longer– during which time they’d surely fall farther behind on suppressor registrations. And by requiring a $200 transfer tax, that would essentially double every owner’s cost! This would be a bureaucratic nightmare.

Update on Mutated COVID-19 in Mink

C.B. also sent us this: WHO reports coronavirus discovered among mink populations in 6 countries. Here is a key quote:

“Six countries have reported coronavirus cases among farmed mink, the World Health Organization announced.

Italy, Spain, Sweden, the Netherlands and the U.S. join Denmark in noting the presence of the virus among mink farm populations, the WHO said in a statement.

The concern over mink population infections arises from the recent discovery of mutations in the virus among farmed mink in Denmark.

The “cluster 5” variant, as the WHO labels it, has a combination of mutations that have not been previously observed. The WHO says that “the implications of the identified changes in this variant are not yet well understood.”

“Initial observations suggest that the clinical presentation, severity and transmission among those infected are similar to that of other circulating SARS-CoV-2 viruses,” the WHO statement said on Friday.

However, The “cluster 5” variant has thus far shown to be less inhibited by antibodies than the normal virus is, which authorities fear may threaten the efficacy of vaccines in development across the globe.”

The Conservative Treehouse is Deplatformed

Linked over at the news aggregation site: WordPress deplatforms The Conservative Treehouse for no reason. JWR’s Comment: I recommend that anyone who blogs with WordPress via WordPress-owned servers should immediately migrate their sites to their own servers, as well as a backup server, for good measure. We did this more than 10 years ago, for SurvivalBlog’s hosting.

    1. This article: Are There More Murder Hornet Nests?

      Please note. This is a reminder that there are many things being well-armed will not protect you from.

      Pay attention to the big picture.

      Carry on

  1. Yeah .Gov thinks they are gonna tax their way outta ARs and other weapons and components.
    It should be the tipping point but after seeing the turn in line for bumpstocks and even watching popular youtubers and such make videos and give instructions on how to “because we will win the lawsuit” it tells you where the heads of people are.

    1. Brandon Smith has this up on Alt Market as well. I told a friend about this and their response was along the lines of “well it doesn’t matter for us because it isn’t required for us” I told them no, it isn’t required yet, but it’s coming, and they acted like I was crazy. It amazes me how blind so many people are.

  2. The people of this CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC will NOT be cheated out of their form of government, their Unalienable, GOD-Given rights, their Natural and Inherent rights by a bunch of LYING, CHEATING, THIEVING, LOW-DOWN COMMUNISTS who call themselves “Democrats”. If this FRAUD for Biden and the Left-wing lunatics is not overturned by the courts, it is simply time to lock and load one, thirty round magazine. The true purpose of the 2nd Amendment is ABUNDANTLY clear to any thinking individual. Since the foundation of this country and it’s struggle for freedom, too many lives have been lost, ruined or maimed. Too many properties, homes, and fortunes laid to waste by patriots who would rather live as free men than as slaves.

    1. Agreed.

      Would you shoot an active shooter in a schoolyard? You bet cha!
      Would you shoot a gunman killing motorists from a highway bridge? You bet cha!

      So as Matt Bracken (decorated US Navy Seal) eloquently pointed out do this duty of shooting in increments which doesn’t yield jail. Would you shoot a Molotov cocktail thrower at a public riot you just to happen to be at? You bet cha!

      Happy hunting.

    2. @Thomas Jefferson- +1
      If we do not have free and fair elections, we have no government- we have totalitarian slaveryship. We have no rule of law. Note to Claire Wolfe if droolin’ Joe and his dizzy ho are sworn in on January 20th 2021, – it is time.

  3. I’m hoping that Sydney Powell can work to overturn the phony election results. Hate to sound like a negative nelly, but we’ve heard so much about fraud uncovered, only to never hear of it again, no indictments, no trials, no jail for any of those crooks. Sure hope and pray it works this time.

    1. Prayer is all we have. I felt God speak to my heart and say that this election will be overturned. Trump will remain as standing president. But pray around the clock. My prayer journal is replete with this prayer multiple times per day. God Bless.

    2. Janie,
      I can’t agree more with your frustration about fraud uncovered, only to never hear of it again. It appears there are NO consequence if one is a highly placed politician or under the protection of one. The horns are sounded with political hot air and the press gets their financial interest addressed and then everything fades away leaving those of us with a memory wonder when we will get some results from the system. I have come to the realization that I just shouldn’t expect it until some major changes take place.

      I also noticed how the Congress has televised hearings that appear to only be for showing those they represent that they are actally doing something in DC when in reality they do absolutely nothing and that telivised activity often detracts from doing the job they were elected to do.

      We were called DEPLORABLE and I’m insulted, but when considering the source, I’m OK with it; but when enough of the people are DISGUSTED with the nonsense, perhaps there will be an opportunity for changes. So heaping on the BS will eventually reach a point when the people have enough…..isn’t that what happened in 1776?

      1. Red Rover,

        Here are a few helpful tidbits from the soon-to-be-a-major-motion-picture LargeMarge Rules For Getting Out Of Bed In The Morning:

        * I can only be insulted if I participate.

        * You can only insult me if I take it personal.

        * Your opinion of me is none of my business.
        And in closing:
        * anybody named ‘Biden’ remains always and forever a blithering imbecile.
        This’s my opinion, but hardly anybody named ‘Biden’ takes it personal.
        Do you see the efficacy of this?
        Ergo on!

  4. Having been around for a long time, I am well aware that the only thing that will grab a politician’s attention is the possibility that the people he/she “represents” are getting mad about something and starting to blame him/her for not doing something.
    There is no doubt in my mind that demon rats engineered and pulled off a massive election fraud.
    If you agree, it is more than time that we all join together and send a fiery and enraged email/phone call/letter to our Congressional representative and both of your Senators demanding that they personally stand up and demand an immediate and emergency investigation of the Presidential election.
    I just fired mine off, I am hoping you will too and if you agree with me, share this as far as possible.

    1. Bud,

      That is a good suggestion but it is just a start. I sent my letters off last week.

      The DC Swamp is so deep and foul smelling that it will be a miracle to clean it up peaceably. It has reached the point that politicians fear their political opponents and the main street media more than the voter. This 2020 fraud has probably reinforced the fact that us voters no longer matter too much.

      Stalin said something like: ‘it is not the votes that count, it’s who counts the votes’.


  5. Voter fraud undermines the very fabric of our system and our way of life. The other side alleged voter fraud in the last election, but still stood against voter idendification and other laws that would have guarded against it.

    I’m praying (please everyone who prays pray also) for the truth to be known. That the deeds done in darkness in this election would come to light. irrefutably

  6. About: “Trump Lawyer Sidney Powell Predicts Court Action on Election” = God Bless her and the other lawyers, efforts.

    Other people hoping for a Trump victory have said, ‘The voters have to become involved, and demand a real count of the vote.’

    There’s a video out on YouTube, at the moment. = ~“Drop and Roll” – How The 2020 Election Was Stolen From Donald Trump~ by the Gateway Pundit, November 18, 2020. The video is a little under 4 minutes long; a quick statistical analysis of the crooked vote tabulation.

    ~If this video is censored by YouTube, it will be findable elsewhere on the Internet. … Quite a number of Internet sites has taken this advice from SurvivalBlog: =

    “JWR’s Comment: I recommend that anyone who blogs with WordPress via WordPress-owned servers should immediately migrate their sites to their own servers, as well as a backup server, for good measure. ~~ We did this more than 10 years ago, for SurvivalBlog’s hosting.”
    A lot of people are fleeing the Libtard places. … They’re NOT leaving because of COVID; they’re fleeing because Libtard places are just large Nuthouses.

    1. Worth watching if you have an Hour and Forty-Five minutes to spend watching videos. The current 2020 election ‘steal’ and how it’s being attempted is explained. … If the ‘steal’ takes place, there will be NO MORE USA as we know it.

      ~~~Trump Campaign Legal Team Holds Press Conference in DC 11/19/20~~~
      “Right Side Broadcasting Network
      Thursday, November 19, 2020: Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. will host a press conference in Washington, D.C. with former Mayor of New York Rudy Giuliani and Trump Campaign Senior Legal Advisor Jenna Ellis.”
      The tall women that speaks second is the Lawyer Sidney Powell, in the above article link. … There’s a big attempted steal of our election for President. … The crooked voting machines and the computer program are used here and around the world.

      It was mentioned briefly, there’s a probability that the crooked voting machines have already been used in the USA to ‘steal’ local elections. = The crooked voting machine company takes a ~money payment to ensure a crooked tabulation.

      We need God more than ever.

      God bless America, land that I love
      Stand beside her and guide her
      Through the night with the light from above
      From the mountains to the prairies

      To the oceans white with foam
      God bless America, my home sweet home
      God bless America, land that I love
      Stand beside her and guide her

      Through the night with the light from above
      From the mountains to the prairies
      To the oceans white with foam
      God bless America, my home sweet home

      From the mountains to the prairies
      To the oceans white with foam
      God bless America, my home sweet home
      God bless America, my home sweet home

      1. @GGHD… love that you took time to include the words of this patriotic song!

        IT, along with many songs I grew up singing in worship decades ago, have been showing up in my thoughts throughout the past few months. They not only swell my heart with love for God and country, but also CONSTANTLY remind me to get down on my prayer bones and pray without ceasing for the president, his administration and those behind the scenes working on his and our behalf. We know this battle is not against flesh and blood. There are unseen armies fighting around us, especially for this country and the remnant remaining.

        I embrace the biblical account of the angelic visitors to Abraham answering…”yes, for 100, 50, 10 righteous people in Sodom and Gomorrah, I will spare them the destruction planned.” AND when the destruction went forward, those righteous few still found were led to safety if they were willing.

        As Abraham waited to know if his kin were safe, he probably SAW the firery judgment from where he was…no less apprehensive than we are, waiting to see what’s happened and what comes next…

  7. Are we the prey? The sick libs believe so and treat us as such. So, are we the ones to be sent to camps? I think not.
    The libs belong in camps. They are mentally ill and should be institutionalized, or at least removed from their perches permanently. They should not be allowed to breed.
    The elected libs and Rinos in The Swamp are physically weak…extremely so. They can’t stay off their pacifiers very long. Some have claimed they were war heroes while never having served, and have still been allowed to hold their positions.
    People, there’s something really wrong with that.
    We are the backbone of the United States. Let’s keep it that way. Stay strong. Our time is near.
    Semper Fi

  8. Anyone who’s lived in the US for more than two weeks knows that Trump has zero chance of changing the election outcome. The PTB knows conservatives talk big but never do jack when it comes to action. No matter how much corruption in this election were brought to light, it would make no difference whatsoever. Much of the corruption that the Democrats and the Deep State accomplished in the past four years came to light and what happened? Zilch, nada, zero. That fact won’t change regardless of what election abnormalities come to light. If they found a long email trail outlining exactly how they were going to steal the election, it would still make zero difference.

    We have no rights in this country, only certain privileges which have been dwindling every year since 1776. The idea that we have “God-given rights” is absurd, God is not running this country, a$$holes are and they take away more of our privileges with each breath that they draw and everybody keeps voting them into office. The end of our nation is certain, just like every other empire that has existed and I have no desire whatsoever to put it off. For those of you with no children or grandkids, I can understand you’re wanting to delay it as long as possible. I have lots of grandkids and would much rather fight the last battle on my watch, not leave it to them to fight it on theirs. They’d have much less chance than we would. The only thing that will get conservatives to get their arses in gear is gun confiscation and odds are, even that’s a huge maybe. The only thing that will save humanity is an EMP/Carrington event. You want to pray? Pray for that. Better for 90% of the population to die than to have 100% living in slavery under the quickly-approaching autocratic NWO. God will not save a godless nation and IMO Christians would do better to wake up to that fact and stop spending so much time on their knees and more time on their butts reading the Antifa/BLM/George Soros playbook followed and the Anarchist Handbook, and then getting on their feet and doing what it says. But they’re too nice for that. So they’ll politely watch our country go farther down the toilet. Technology has given governments the upper hand and until that electronic technology is made irrelevant by a worldwide EMP war, we’ve no chance whatsoever. But we can at least show ’em what we’re made of before we go down and take a bunch of the SOB’s with us. And like that line in The Postman, “At least we’ll die with their chains off our backs.”

    1. I agree that nothing is going to change, and even if the election “results” do change, it won’t stop what is coming, even though it might delay it for a little while. And while I just have an infant son and no grandkids, I agree 100% about preferring to go on and get on with things on my watch instead of leaving it for our descendants. Just like a cancer growing, our current problems are just going to keep getting worse, and while I don’t relish the idea of things going down the tubes, I would rather go on and work on removing the cancer now.
      I’d gladly put my life on the line now instead of passing the buck on to my son and the other children who are the future of whatever becomes of this country.

    2. You might be correct. The corruption could now be so deep. I am not counting on Trump staying in power. Either way, I figure the country is coming apart, and at best we can pray for Balkanization. Yet I still pray that the country will hold together a while longer.

    3. I spending time dusting off, and testing my radio gear. By helping people radio up, I’m already in the fight, but I will spent more time doing this: This is what an old guy with an antique rifle can do at better than 1,000 yards. I cannot even see this far.

      Swedish Mauser v Soda bottle @ 1000+ yards

      My favorite rifle is just about this old and shoots the same round, but sports a BDC (bullet drop compensating) military type turret scope.

    4. The Republicans’ NDAA destroyed our Bill of Rights. Not one shot was fired. That was 9 years ago. Yet we still cling to Republicans (and Trump) believing that they are the ‘Good Cops’. Shame on former conservatives. Name one principle of conservatism that Trump consistently supports. Heck, I can visualize today’s fake conservatives supporting martial law! Globalists would love that.

      Professing ‘patriots’ may have hundreds of millions of guns and tons of ammo but do we have anything we will fight for? Yea, it’s that pesky thing about ‘pledging our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.’

  9. St Funogas, with all respect.

    Ephesians 6:12

    “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the powers of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

    That leads to putting on the whole armor of God.

    I do understand and your feelings.

  10. I wish I couldn’t agree with you St. Funogas, but I do completely.
    Pres. Putin and Pres. Xi have zero respect for Biden. This is the perfect time for them to launch a high altitude EMP, during this hectic and directionless transition. Perfect timing alignment with Sun Tzu “The Art of War”.

    1. jima,
      You and I disagree on two points.

      * Russia President Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin is intelligent.
      * President Putin is dedicated to the Russian people.
      * President Putin establishes multiple ‘Plan B’ avenues to ensure the Russia he loves will continue to prosper.
      Additionally, Russia is incredibly rich in natural resources; they have little need for conquest.
      The full-color Russia of 2020 is not the black-and-white 1960 USSR of Engels and plagiarists Marx/Lenin.

      President Putin — and all the other ‘enemies’ fabricated by TheMainStreamMedia — have zero-zero-zero interest in battling Americans.

      The Russian people are no threat to Americans.

      The chinese?
      * They were inbred centuries ago.
      * They are xenophobic mimics.
      Without Americans, the chinese revert to feuding tribes, they cease to exist as a nation.
      * They can barely build dams across rivers,
      * their aircraft-carriers sink upon launching,
      * their garbage islands choke the ocean,
      * their polluting factories reduce life-spans by decades,
      * their bankers loan without collateral and without recourse in case of default.

      The chinese are no threat to Americans.
      Indeed, the chinese are a threat to the chinese.


      My suggestion:
      * step outside the drama du jour.
      Nobody except TheMainStreamMedia give a flying fig about starting more wars.
      As 2020 painfully illustrates, no national economy can support military foreign entanglements.
      Every government at every level down to dog-catcher is bankrupt, struggling to maintain the illusion of maintaining their infrastructure.

      A cheap attack such as an EMP over Kansas?
      Everybody loses, nine billion people… except the Amish and some jungle folk in Papua New Guinea.
      Despite all their fancy hats, militaries are more for parades than protecting anybody back home.


      You and I agree on this point:
      * Vlad and xi aren’t the only folk with zero-zero-zero respect for anybody named ‘Biden’…

  11. I keep hearing Powell, Giuliani, et al talking about how this election was rigged, we have evidence, etc… Great, stop talking about it and show your cards, I cannot for the life of me understand what the hold up is. I’m hopeful that they’re right, but the clock is ticking people, if you’ve got some proof, put it out there so something can be done about it. 2 months and 2 days until Inauguration Day, this needs to be settled long before that. (If not, Pelosi becomes temporary President, does anyone really want that?!)

    1. They can’t present the evidence to us, yet. It needs to be presented in court first. Yes, what they are telling us is tantalizing. But this must get to the courts first before too much is revealed, otherwise our enemy has too much time to cover their tracks. Besides, too many lives have been threatened, literally. Care must be paramount.

      I know there was election fraud (not necessarily voter fraud), without massive coordinated election fraud there was no way Trump could loose, yet he did. I’ve been following the Dominion story for several days now. What I have seen is overwhelming criminality. Look into a man named Joe Oltmann, he has the story on Dominion and Eric Coomer, the exec in the company who actually “arranged” for Trump to loose. The character is AntiFA all the way, also, quite insane. Be patient.

    2. I have seen some conservative videos on that claim the slow process is planned to limit time for countersuits and push the case to the Supreme Court, where they have more legal and standing and a more conservative justices. Hoping for success in turning this election around and getting more preps done before the next one.

    3. @Spotlite- Rudy Giuliani and Sydney Powell do not win by talking on TV or to the press. They are lawyers who must present their evidence in court. A lawsuit is filed, and the court schedules a trial. Then a judge will try the case and the case is decided. Just how do YOU think that the system works ? Think about it.

    4. Spotlight, there is sufficient evidence in the public record, about the 2020 election to understand, that crooked election officials are part of the attempted ‘steal’ of our 2020 election.

      The ~Trump Campaign Legal Team Holds Press Conference in DC 11/19/20~ is worth a watch, if you have an extra couple of hours.
      Plus, “Drop and Roll” – How The 2020 Election Was Stolen From Donald Trump~ by the Gateway Pundit, November 18, 2020. [under four minutes.] A mathematical explanation of the impossible vote tabulation, for an honest election.

      Trump today (11/19/2020) on his Twitter account said: “Look at this in Michigan! A day AFTER the election, Biden receives a dump of 134,886 votes at 6:31AM!”

      Trump also today, (11/19/2020) on his Twitter account said, “Look at this in Wisconsin! A day AFTER the election, Biden receives a dump of 143,379 votes at 3:42AM, when they learned he was losing badly. This is unbelievable!”

      Spotlight used this analogy in his comment: “stop talking about it and show your cards.” … The case of a ‘stolen’ election has now entered the Arena of the Courtroom. The public is sufficiently informed. …. All the ‘cards’ are destined for ‘show’ to a Judge. … A good lawyer will not show his cards too soon.
      +As was said, in the news conference: People are being threatened with death and harm to their families.

      The FAKE NEWS are in the business of destroying Trump and the USA as we know it. … Other more dependable news sources are in the Business of Boosting their own ratings; (They’re NOT practicing lawyers representing Trump).

      The ‘election’ is for the Presidency of the USA, the future of America, and ~trillions of dollars. There’s a reason the Wall Street big-shots, most of the Billionaires here and overseas, and the crooked USA politicians ALL want Trump gone.
      As the Good Book says, The love of money is the root of all evil.

      Sleepy~Crooked Joe is a candidate for the Globalists working to turn America into a Servitude Nation with ‘service’ jobs as our future.
      It’s time to pay attention to advice from people at SurvivalBlog; such as the articles about how to EMP proof vehicles, owning good guns, food preps, and the safe places to live.
      The very wealthy have started trickling out of the Libtard Nuthouse cities. … We shall see in the near future, who will be the next President of the USA. … American might still be open for business, yet (as a Free Country).

      1. An analysis of the ‘big steal’ of our election had this comment today.

        “The reason they don’t want to do Thanksgiving or Xmas has nothing to do with the infinitesimally small chance you’ll get COVID. It’s one of the few times you can talk about facts with your friends and families for hours without them moderating.”
        A plausible explanation. =
        The places were people get together are closed. Many of the Churches have reclosed, on orders from the Government. Large gatherings in private homes are prohibited. … The places were people might gossip have ‘safe distance’ requirements.

        The Gateway Pundit has more information about the ‘big steal’, and how stolen votes were taken from Trump, ‘bounced off’ third party candidates, and then given to Biden.
        It’s a method of concealment of Theft. This type of switching is NOT reported on Election night.

        ~BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: The Steal Was MASSIVE! – Expert Reveals How Hundreds of Thousands of Trump Votes Were Shifted to Biden on Election Night!~ [November 19, 2020. thegatewaypundit(dot)com]

        There’s information in the article, about the bounce technique used during the ‘big steal’ election tabulation. The FAKE NEWS should be called the Concealing News, too.

  12. Hot off the Press, 11/19/20, fron Paul Watson, Summit News:

    Paul here,

    Thanks for reading and sharing my newsletter.

    Shocking footage out of Germany shows Doctor Andreas Noack being raided by armed police in the middle of a YouTube stream for apparently violating coronavirus laws.

    German Doctor Raided by Armed Police During Live YouTube Stream
    Leftists responded to a Twitter thread asking “how do you deprogram 75 million people?” by suggesting Trump supporters should be interned in “re-education camps” and that all conservative talk radio should be banned.

  13. The elections were at the level of 3rd world corruption…. meanwhile the same crooked liberals lecture developing nations on “transparency and independent institutions.” What does it all mean? The ruling class (proletariat, patrician) “we deserve to run things” is REAL in D.C…. the District of Corruption. The District of Criminals. Evidently they’ve got partnerships in Detroit, Green Bay, Las Vegas, Philly and Pittsburg. It’s sad for our nation after nearly 250 years of hard fought liberty.

    I encourage my friends in the 3rd world “your republic is still young- we really have no excuse at this point.” It’s not even about Trump/Biden…. its about honesty vs dishonesty, stolen results. They’ve been stealing for a very long time. Trump only had the courage to face it down.

    1. Mama Bear
      Even if we hosted our own servers, the problem is the “Internet” relies on routing traffic To and From. Routing is easily blocked by the Big Guys (AT&T for one). We should develop alternative means of communication (ie, HAM radio and carrier pigeon). Also develop “code” to communicate with family. Code developed in person, committed to memory, never written down or transmitted via the Internet. We must think like so many others in history who became targets of the regime (Hitler, Stalin, Mao). When having a family in-person meeting, no spy devices should be present (iPhones, smart watches, Alexa, smart TV’s, Internet enabled security gear, etc).

      Over the top? You decide.

  14. Has anyone else noticed the background change for Lou Dobbs?
    He had an American flag and now has a green, red, and white background that resembles a middle eastern flag. Take your pick.
    Muslims run Fox now, including Paul Ryan.
    We don’t watch Fox much now so not sure if other commentators have same changes.

  15. There’s been several posters who have mentioned that America’s best hope for survival is an EMP. If it happens, preppers would be the most likely to survive and survive for years. The anti-American socialist and all the other snowflakes would soon be gone. The down side though is that the elderly would be at high risk as would many children. But at least our country could continue to live on providing that we’re not attacked by some other country. So I never worry about an EMP and sometimes I catch myself wishing it would happen and honestly I feel bad for wishing for it. I just don’t see any other way to be rid of those who long for our destruction or at least long to change us in to a communist country. An EMP may stand for Electra Magnetic Pulse but It also stands for Eliminating Many Progressives.

    1. @Mray- that is total fantasy. Not even rational. Isn’t the Chinese plague good enough for you ? Be careful what you wish for.

  16. Mutated Covid? Nope! The Covid virus was made to infect cats and ferrets used in gain of function research! Mink are cousins of ferrets! What do you think is going to happen?

    If there really has been a mutation, then all hopes of a true vaccine have just gone away! Do we have one for the common cold? Nope! Mutates too quick!

      1. A/L,

        Thank you for the updated post on the great mink episode. The information gleaned is that government officials continue to make decisions that are knee-jerk and usually based on the appearance of doing something and relying on emotions rather then facts. Also, there are ulterior motives.

        Soon we American citizens may know how a mink feels.
