And Joe took showers with his teenaged stepdaughter. Who's now completely fucked in the head, cheated openly on her husband, and is continually pulled over -- but let off -- for drunk driving.

The Biden clan saga ranks up with the imperial accounts of Suetonius.

The child's mother had forbid Hunter from seeing the girl, accusing him of face-time-ing the child nude and smoking crack in front of the child.

Hunter and the child evaded the mother's wishes and exchanged emotional texts about how much they missed each other. Hunter asked the child her location. The child said she was at the mall near her home. Hunter suggested folding clothes with the child in bathroom at Whole Foods.



Hunter Biden still walks free. He still owns his stake in a billion-dollar sweetheart deal with China's Communist Party. The media suppressed the story of statutory rape, as well as Doctor Jill Biden's second husband's role in the cover-up.

Speaking at a Jewish event in Delaware in 2015, a few months after Beau Biden's death, Joe Biden told a Joe Biden story, about trying to seduce a girl: "“I was the Catholic kid. She was the Jewish girl. I still tried. I didn’t get anywhere." That girl grew up & had daughters. And grand-daughters.

Joseph Robinette Biden The Third (known as "Beau Biden")-- forever trying to live-up to Joe Biden's bragging about Joe Biden-- married one of those daughters. And, after Beau died, Hunter Biden moved-in with one daughter, rented a house with the other, and did sexytime with both.

And, according to Beau's widow, Hunter was also sexually inappropriate with the under-age granddaughters. Texts show that Jim Biden & Joe Biden told Hunter they would "shove it down her fucking throat" in response to the concerned mother's 2018 claim.

Texts also show Hunter discussing 'folding clothes' in a Whole Foods Bathroom with the 14-year old grand-daughter. 'Folding clothes' is slang from a 2017 J. Cole rap song about sneaking-away to have sex.

Lovely family.
Hunter is the apple of Joe's eye and it brings a tear to said eye that he's gone into the family sleaze business. The family is so obviously corrupt. It takes a special set of tinted glasses not to see that when you look at the decades long history of money paid to family members by influence peddlers at opportune times. It beggars belief that he can claim not to know what Hunter is up to with such a long history of graft. He would have to be stupid or blind.
Beau was Joe's favorite, and was tapped to continue the Biden crime family's legacy. Hunter was always coddled, cuz he got more fucked up in the car crash, and Joe always felt a little remorse for being away that night getting a blow job from Jill.

Back when Biden was merely an obstacle to Lizzie Warren, the media published exposés like this:

Biden Inc.: Over his decades in office, ‘Middle-Class Joe’s’ family fortunes have closely tracked his political career.

However. The way this piece of shit twice 'answered' Rand Paul's question. With a shameless word-for-word recitation of pre-fab bureaucratic condescension? That's where I draw the line.

What is he going to do? Is he going to bring back production to the US? Surely that's all Trumpian dreaming, holding out false hope to the white supremacist insurrectionist peasants? Is he now admitting that China are not friends of the US? Has there ever been an administration so intent on erasing the previous one and trash talking it to a ridiculous degree while taking credit for it's achievements?

I don't see much reference to Cho Bi-Ding's Munich "ni**er" slip. TBF I think he fumbled an attempt to say "eager" rather than uttering a touretty N-word. He also went on to slur the word "chancelor" so I think it indicates where the US media are that this isn't being treated as a worrying sign. Maybe Kamala thinks it too soon to declare Biden hunting season.

My wife got her first shot of the Moderna vaccine yesterday. I don't know why they gave her a shot except that she has all her medical records in an automated system at the local hospital. She has heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, fibromyalgia, and is obese. Maybe they looked at her records and said... "Fucking hell... this bitch needs a shot". I don't know.

But all went well. She didn't have a reaction, but she did sleep all day today.... which is kind of normal. Anyway.... that is good news. When she texted me that she had the shot I cried. Next dose in late March.

Thanks Trump.

Today, GF heard a commotion under our window. She looked out & saw 2 men fighting. They kept fighting, even as a copcar approached.

Soon, her 'Citizen' app reported the men had fled, one was caught-- one got away. According to snippets of police radio, the one who was caught was a suspect in the shooting, a few days ago. I wonder if the fight was due to the other guy trying to capture him?

The police radio chatter was a mess. Someone-- either the dispatcher or the cops on the street-- described the fighters as Possibly Armed. So, afterward, when the street cops said the guy they caught was suspected of being 'involved in the shooting', the Central dispatcher got confused & didn't know if shots were fired today/ or if the cop was referring to the prior shooting.

The cop kept replying to Central, using the word 'shooting', but not clarifying if shots were fired today. Central kept asking the cop for clarification--whether shots were fired to day. Which led to Traffic 7 thinking that Central was affirmatively stating that shots were fired today.

An hour or so later-- I went downstairs to help GF haul-up bags of groceries. And two shaggy white guys were hanging out in front of the nail salon...

in FULL BLACKFACE. Ears, hands... their coats & sneakers looked like they were all coated with brown -stuff-. Like chimney sweeps. They looked like derelicts, but if you were fully dusted in weird brown grime, you'd probably look homeless/ now matter how respectable you looked beforehand.

They looked like Dan Ackroyd in Trading Places.

I couldn't tell if they were crazy, pranksters, assholes, profoundly-misguided undercover cops.

Speaking of 'disinformation', I was just watching PBS News Hour report on Congress's hearing-- regarding the security fail on 1/6 at the Capitol.

At this point, I shouldn't be surprised at anything emitted by Yamiche Alcindor. And yet... I was still startled by her claim of 'disinfo' from Sen. Josh Hawley.

Apparently Hawley asked questions about leftwing infiltration & incitement on 1/6. That's factually true. BLM activist John Sullivan's involvement is well-documented, for example.

(By the way-- 7 days ago, the post reported that Sullivan sold video footage of 1/6 to CNN and NBC for $35,000
https://nypost.com/2021/02/17/accused-c ... o-nbc-cnn/ )


Yet PBS firmly accuses Hawley of spreading misinformation:

This is the real motivation behind the racial division media complex IMHO. Nice chart of racism references in the media over time and it shows a big uptick immediately after the Occupy demos.


Would have placed such claims about Wall Street influence in the wingnut category not so long ago but the Trump era has been a rude awakening. I'm always giving my 2 cents about political and social trends but beyond the obvious political moves by the usual suspects I don't think your average Joe has a clue about who is really pulling the strings and why. Social and political movements with their own motivations but the real power brokers can decide whether they thrive or die.

Happy to report to GySgt Brive results from my range experiment to compare speed of the Uberti Winchester 1873 with the Martini-Henry and Lee-Metford video test. My GF had me go first.

My shooting pasture only extends to about 75 yards, but we were firing .357 pistol rounds, not .303 or .402 Saturn V's, so I think the comparison is valid. Our target -- through buckhorn sights -- was an 18" Shoot'n'C roundel, again a fair equivalent to the torso-shaped, cardboard Tommy in the video. Lamentably, I eschewed cosplay for T-shirt and jeans.

The Winnie was preloaded with 12 rounds in the magazine, chamber empty. Timing started the instant I ran the lever to chamber a round. Timing stopped when I raised rifle to port arms, executed a sharp wheel to the left, and saluted. Yeah, right.

Results: 12 rounds in 40 sec and change, all shots on target, including three bullseyes. So 3.33 seconds per round, slower than the Lee-Metford in the video, though I was considerably delayed on two occasions when I had to dump the casings that had ejected into the palm of my trigger hand. The 1873 ejects upwards, and I've had casings hit me in the nose, bounce off the brim of my cap, and generally dance in front of my eyes. OTOH, for the Lee-Metford, 8 rounds were fired from the mag, then 2 by hand.

My GF fired 8 rounds at just under 3 sec per, but her group was shit.

Didn't test the Henry Golden Boy. It's highly accurate as fast as you can run it -- which is very fast -- but the .22, especially the short, do begin to drop beyond 30 yards. I saw no point in timing the Mini-14 semi-auto, although a comparison between running one 10 rd mag vs. two 5s might be interesting. Inserting mags is a bit of a pain.

My neighbor just snagged a CA-compliant AR-15 and will be bringing it over soon. I predict he'll get off 20 rounds in 2 seconds, every one a hit somewhere among my pine trees, and whoop in glee.

To be quite honest, I'm more of a "swords 'n' sandals" kinda guy (really setting myself up with that, huh?) although I'm a "high fantasy" nut as opposed to "shit ages" fiction. Got to be dragons, orcs, pointy-eared wussies (elves, obviously) and a vast, supporting cast of rogues, barbarians, buxom wenches and evil wizards.

Over the last few days, I read Heinlein's 'Farmer in the Sky' to GF, while she cooked. In honor of Texas freezing. I smiled when I saw the words "An unseasonal freeze in Texas..." on the page, given as an example of disaster with unforseen consequences. And he used the term 'greenhouse effect' in 1950.

The good parts held up. But reading it aloud revealed how dry Heinlein's scientific exposition can be. Theoretically, it's wonderful & kooky that he made literature out of that stuff. But sometimes it's just work to get-thru. Also the book was originally serialized in Boy's Life magazine, and the pacing was probably tailored for that format. Some sections shoulda been 4 pages, but were probably 12 or 16 so they could stand alone in the magazine.

Oh Ok. Hyperbole. So how about basic CPI increases - just as an insult to what the fattened middle-ware private sector gets.
I agree that many teachers work their asses off. But, they will get few medals. This is part of my point. Teachers portray themselves as heroes. Many teachers act like heroes as well. But, when the teachers in Chicago will not return to work under current circumstances they really dig themselves a hole. They lose the ability to claim they are heroes.

This doesn't help the occupation nor does it help bring reform to the education system.

I tried like crazy to talk my daughter out of becoming a teacher. It is a shit job. The pay sucks... the rules are getting worse and worse. No doubt. My daughter had completed a full year of business school with straight As. She is very driven and clever and would have made a great buyer in industry. Good looking... good communicator. Six figures and a management job in 5 to 8 years... for sure. We really had a good knockdown on this topic... but... she switched to teaching.

and now.... she bitches about the rules, and the parents, and the bratty kids, and the shitty pay.... and I am like... yes... you knew this going in. So, her solution is to work with younger kinds in a private school. She brings in about $35k but she has the summer off and she never takes any work home.

Brive - maybe you can explain this to me. Why do so many people (especially women) decide to become teachers? Do they really think they are being heroes? Do they think it will match their work-life balance goals? Am I missing something?

If you populace simply doesn't-want such devices, you better not allow any immigrants who do like such weapons.

Matt Cavanaugh wrote: Our county was bragging on FB how it'd finally vaccinated every public school teacher -- while we've been allocated but a tenth of the total doses needed for seniors and other at-risk groups. I commented that was a terrible prioritization, as the virus poses virtually no risk to children and teachers' age group. One lady scolded, "What an uninformed comment! Would you care to cite your source?" So I did:

https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#demographics


Some dude stated, "many teachers are at risk." I replied, "Quantify 'many'."


Another lady simply couldn't accept I hadn't gotten this crazy idea from a "youtube or a tweet", "some conspiracy theorist" instead of "trusting the data and the experts." I replied my data were from the CDC and I was reading research conducted by epidemiologists. Who were her 'experts'?

None have replied. Ignorance is Strength.
Teachers are one of those groups who are always fishing for compliments and acting all heroic. Makes me want to puke.

There are several occupations that go for the hero story.... nurses.... cops... and teachers. Teachers post shit like "If you can read then thank a teacher!" Like that particular bitch was so fucking heroic.... if she didn't show up for work that I would somehow be a retard. Fuck you bitch. How about.... if you drove to work today thank and engineer.... or auto worker..... or if you have heat today thank a petroleum worker. It is just such fucking shit.

and... I know why this is. I have had a revelation on this.

Certain people have great power over your life because they are hard to fire... and... they can really fuck up your life. If you fuck with your nurse while in the hospital she will never help you. She will label you as difficult or wrong... uncooperative... or even racist. You fight with your nurse at your peril. So, they go around making demands and asking you to worship their dedication. Then, they have the fucking balls to claim they are nurses because of how much they love to help people. Yeah... see how much they love to help people when you criticize them.

Teachers... same shit.... except they will fuck with your kids. You can't fire a teacher. You can't usually even get your kid into a different class. So, everyone goes along with this goddamned hero story.... "Oh god.... teachers are such heroes... what would we do without them?"

I am close to many teachers. A sister-in-law, a niece, two best friends, and my daughter. I understand. It is a shitty time to be a teacher. On-line teaching sucks and the bureaucrats are making teaching a big bunch of red-tape. I get it. But the teachers are the ones hurting themselves. The unions only protect bad teachers. It lowers the standards for all teachers. Rather than pushing for excellence and creativity in teaching they push back against change. Their performance sucks. So... they can't demand greater pay. It remains a poorly paid job because there are to many trained teachers and their standards are low.

I make this point to my teacher friends. They all say that we need more teachers. I don't know why they say this. I think they buy the bs from the universities that always predict a teachers shortage. The unis love to graduate teachers. It is a five year degree and almost any bimbo can qualify. When a position opened up at the local grade school for a teacher they received over 100 resumes'. 100! WTF. When I try to fill a position for an engineer I am lucky to find five potential candidates.... after posting for months.

and - ultimately - the biggest reason it is a bad time to be a teacher is that everyone hates teachers right now. Ohh... people will not say it out loud.... (see reasoning above)... but teachers are not really seen as heroes at all anymore.
My wife is a teacher in the Australian public system.

Apart from a brief period back in April or so last year, they have been BAU while the rest of us sheltered in place 'working' from home and hiding from public transport and offices.

They have been jerked around by government indecision, they have recalibrated countless times while continuing their normal workload. They have put up with BS draconian government lock-down edicts for the 'normal' people - with a completely different line of BS for them. It would have been better if the govt had honestly just said "we have no idea what the risk profile is but you are potentially expendable for the greater economic good".

This on top of SNAFU. Shit hourly wages. Buck shifting from the Government for their own failed policies. Imposed woke curriculum. A ridiculous attempt by Govt to introduce Dilbert style management regimes to independently managed people driven by calling ....

Not to mention general fuckwits who never got over their own school days but who just love to dry-wank while bagging teachers ...

People make a mistake when they think learnt professional skillsets and passion can overcome the suffocating shackles of government public service.
They also make a mistake when they conflate their own comfy coffee and cake fueled cubicle experiences with RL classroom management.

Bad teachers exist as in any profession. And they typically suffer for their sins. Great teachers typically crash and burn out of the system. Good teachers (and even just acceptable) who preserve through the long term deserve a fucking medal.

Oh Ok. Hyperbole. So how about basic CPI increases - just as an insult to what the fattened middle-ware private sector gets.

To be expected. While Biden is almost certainly shaky on China the anti-Trump press are happy to create some kind of room for him to act a little tougher. They don't have to worry so much about giving credence to Trump's position on China now he's out of the way.

Q. According to those Education programs... those 'Cathedrals', what-is-it that qualifies a novice to be a teacher?

A. The would-be teacher is taught to defend the Big Education cathedral itself. Teachers are oh-so essential, and paying them is oh-so essential, and the schools and administrators are oh-so essential, and the teachers-who-teach-more-teachers are essential and all must be endlessly funded with taxes.

A huge slice of this essential-ness is the holy mission of civilizing the masses in the religion of the woke, saving the masses from their original sin of racism, misogyny, homophobia, transphobia, islamaphobia, all-the-isms.

Obviously, I'm combining Moldbug's notion of 'the Cathedral' with McWhorter calling woke-ness a 'religion'.

And I wanna point out a hairy aspect of religion: there's no 'off-switch'. These armies of religious extremists being churned out by the Big Ed cathedral... have 'I am a teacher' and 'I'm doing what teachers ought to do' carved into their self-image and sense of purpose. They're know-nothings who don't even know how ignorant they actually are. So they're going to keep replicating bad indoctrination into students/ and being activists in favor of big the corrupt, voracious, destructive Cathedral.

On a similar note...

I think the Biden/Kamala presidency is off to a shaky start. I think the public at-large is displeased with their performance.

At some point-- the big corporate news media is going to have to choose: either continue to shill on behalf of a wildly-unpopular presidency/ with a hostile relationship to the viewing public--- trying to change their minds. Or else the media will side-with and pander-to their angry viewership/ turning against this administration.

Which way will the Fake News jump? Like the teachers above, the corporate insider media class has their own sense of purpose & identity wrapped-up in the idea that they're doing-God's-work by shilling for the Democrats and kneecapping other political stripes. But is there a tipping point, where the media turns-against the fatcat Dems?
