Emmer Out

Timothy Birdnow

Tom Emmer is out as Speaker,  not staying in for one single day.

Frankly I say don't let the door hit you Tom, but that's just me.

The GOP Speaker nominees are starting to resemble Joe Louis' Bum of the Month Club.

His name was open for some fun though. When he pushed a bill we could've said "Emmer some big bills you got Tom!

The Stinking Speaker Nominee

Beverly McCauleff Goff

This "non-profit” is another left wing work around of our constitutional right to free speech! The government can’t censor us they farm out their censorship to organizations like Newsguars to do it for them!

Lawsuit accuses NewsGuard of working with Department of Defense to 'coerce news organizations to alter viewpoints'

Emer-yboard Tom the Squeeker Nominee

Timothy Birdnow

The GOP has nominated RINO Tom Emmer of Minnesota to be Squeeker of the House.

Emmer was one of only two nomimees to vote to certify Joe Biden as President back in 2020. He's worse than Kevin McCarthy.

Emmer still has to win 217 votes to take the gavel, so it may be he won't get the nod.

According to Forbes:

Emmer is arguably the most moderate of the nine candidates—he was the only one who voted in favor of legislation to federally recognize same sex marriage last year, he supports aid for Ukraine and he voted alongside Democrats and a handful of Republicans in September for the short-term budget to avert a governments shutdown"

Why can't we actually have an opposition party that opposes? The GOP is supposedly "moving to the radical right" yet we get these me-too types who go along with every radical idea floated by the Left. And THIS is the best we can do?

I hope Gaetz and company take this guy down. The RINO wing needs to suck it up and give us a true opposition leader, not another go-along to get along creep. America is dying because of such.

Home Repair and Improvement

Timothy Birdnow

So I went into our upstairs bedroom to change a light bulb...

Our upstairs is a finished attic space, and has a low ceiling so it shouldn't have been a problem. The accursed LED bulb was flickering strobe-fashion, and I didn't want my poor wife to stroke out from the stupid thing, so I took the globe off and as I was pulling it down the whole fixture came with it!

DRAT! The fixture had apparently been attached with drywall screws into - drywall. The drywall began crumbling and the whole thing came down, hanging by hot wires and nothing more.

There was no good way to resecure the offending fixture. At a minimum I would have to rip it out and put in new drywall over some sort of board. What should have been a thirty second operation was turning into a major production.

Now, I used to do all that stuff when I was younger, but since my health issues I do very little home repair and improvement. But I do still have the skills gleaned from my cabin-building days, which means the ability to jury-rig any sort of construction project, and most of the time it even worked, sort of.

So I got out the tape. I used standard duct tape and taped the whole fixture up (sans globe, the heaviest part). It fell within minutes. So I got out the superglue, and squeezed glue all around the edge of the fixture. Since it wouldn't stay in place long enough to stick I got some Elephant Tape and taped the fixture up along with the glue. it took quite a bit of tape and when I was done the thing looked utterly horrid; a bunch of black tape in a crazy pattern holding the thing up. But it worked.

Cathy needs that light. She spends most of her time in that room and has vision problems and needs to be able to see. So I got the thing fixed, sort of. It looks like Frankenstein's monster, mismatched, ugly black patches holding it up, but it hasn't fallen. It even has electric contacts much like Frank's neck.

I know eventually I'll have to hire someone to come in and fix it. But for now it'll have to do.

My whole house is getting that way. It was built in 1927 and is really starting to show it's age. I used to maintain it pretty well but find any such effort increasingly difficult. So it is becoming a mass of jury-rigging. I had a bunch of cracks in the foundation and by the back door which I imagine let the mice in, for instance. My solution? Spray foam insulation. So I have a bunch of orange bubbles all around the foundation of the house. It's going to be tough to resell this place.

I just pray the toilet doesn't go; not sure how I can rig something to get by without THAT!

Goodbye America

Timothy Birdnow

Just to put things in persepctive:

President Joe Biden’s deputies welcomed at least one economic migrant into the United States during the last 12 months for every American newborn or high-school graduate.

More than 4 million economic migrants crossed the southern border during the government’s October-to-September budget year, according to federal data released October 21.

In contrast, 3.67 million Americans were born during the matching 12-month period in 2022, according to the Census Bureau. That 2022 number includes at least 400,000 births to illegal migrants.

The inflow also creates vast economic competition for the 3 million American youthswho graduated from schools in the 10 months up to October 2022, the bureau reported.

One predictable result is that the new migrants are pricing ordinary Americans out of housing.

And Biden says the border is secure.

Shall Not Be Enfringed

Chet McAteer

"While the people have property, arms in their hands, and only a spark of noble spirit, the most corrupt Congress must be mad to form any project of tyranny.”
Rev. Nicholas Collin, Fayetteville Gazette (N.C.), October 12, 1789 Episcopal pastor, friend of Benjamin Franklin

"As civil rulers, not having their duty to the people before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as the military forces which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow citizens, the people are confirmed by the article in their right to keep and bear their private arms."
- Tench Coxe, Philadelphia Federal Gazette, June 18, 1789

"On every question of construction of the Constitution, let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invent against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.”
Thomas Jefferson letter to Justice William Johnson, June 12, 1823 more...

Former German Chancellor: U.S. Blocked Ukraine Russian Peace Talks

Timothy Birdnow

Former German Chancellor; Biden wouldn't let Ukraine take a peace deal with Russia.

From Breitbart:

In an interview with the Berliner Zeitung newspaper, Gerhard Schröder, who served as Chancellor of Germany from1998 to 2005, claimed that hundreds of thousands of lives could potentially have been saved if not for pressure exerted on Kyiv by Washington to reject peace negotiations with Moscow.

Schröder, who has faced criticism over his friendship with Vladimir Putin and his business ties in Russia, including as a broad member of the Nord Stream 2 AG, revealed that last year he was asked by Ukraine to act as a mediator with Moscow to seek a peaceful end to the conflict after the Russian military invaded the former Soviet state.

"The only people who could settle the war against Ukraine are the Americans,” the former chancellor said. "At the peace negotiations in March 2022 in Istanbul with [now-Ukrainian Defence Minister] Rustem Umerov, the Ukrainians did not agree to peace because they were not allowed to. They first had to ask the Americans about everything they discussed.”

"The war could be ended if geopolitical interests were not at play,” he added.

If anyone still thinks to support Nikki Haley for President I offer this to disabuse you of so foolish a notion.

Haley wants to bring Palestinians into America.

Now THAT'S a brilliant move!  She'll win the Palestinian vote! Lose all the rest of us but...

I knew Haley was a New World Order dufus.

The Dying Climate Hoax

Timothy Birdnow

John Hindraker at Powerline examines the latest nail in the coffin of CO2-driven climate change.

FTA:

Statistics Norway, the government agency that produces official statistics for that country, released a report last month titled "To what extent are temperature levels changing due to greenhouse gas emissions?” The report concludes:

he results imply that the effect of man-made CO2 emissions does not appear to be sufficiently strong to cause systematic changes in the pattern of the temperature fluctuations. In other words, our analysis indicates that with the current level of knowledge, it seems impossible to determine how much of the temperature increase is due to emissions of CO2.

The report looks at the last 400,000+ years of Earth’s climate history:

The preceding four interglacial periods are seen at about 125,000, 280,000, 325,000 and 415,000 years before now, with much longer glacial periods in between. All four previous interglacial periods are seen to be warmer than the present. The typical length of a glacial period is about 100,000 years, while an interglacial period typically lasts for about 10-15,000 years. The present inter-glacial period has now lasted about 11,600 years.

So sometime relatively soon, the Earth is going to start getting really, really cold. This accompanying chart shows that history, based on ice cores:

Similarly, on the time scale of recent millennia, current temperatures are nothing unusual:

Similarly, on the time scale of recent millennia, current temperatures are nothing unusual:

Kobashi et al. (2011) have reconstructed Greenland surface snow temperature variability over the past 4,000 years (until 1993) at the GISP2 site (near the Summit of the Greenland ice sheet) with a new method that utilizes argon and nitrogen isotopic ratios from occluded air bubbles (Figure B4, Appendix B). These data indicate that warmer temperatures were the norm in the earlier part of the past 4,000 years, including century-long intervals nearly 1°C warmer than the decade (2001-2010). Therefore, it appears that the current decadal mean temperature in Greenland has not exceeded the envelope of natural variability over the past 4,000 years. Schönwiese (1995) has reconstructed temperatures from ice cores in Greenland for the last 11,000 years (Figure B5, Appendix B). These reconstructions show that during the past 10,000 years temperatures over long periods were higher than they are today. The warmest phase occurred 4,000 to 8,000 years ago and is known as the Holocene Climate Optimum or the Atlantic Period.

This chart, included in the report, shows the last 4,000 years, based on Greenland ice cores:

CO2 and Climate Change

Richard Cronin

The following statement is the first sentence in the Abstract from the 1956 paper by Gilbert Plass "The Carbon Dioxide Theory of Climatic Change”

The initial point lays out the Effective Climate Sensitivity (ECS), "provided that no other factors change which influence the radiation balance.”

Comments are welcome.

"The most recent calculations of the infra-red flux in the region of the 15 micron CO2 band show that the average surface temperature of the earth increases 3.6° C if the CO2 concentration in the atmosphere is doubled and decreases 3.8° C if the CO2 amount is halved, provided that no other factors change which influence the radiation balance.”


The Carbon Dioxide Theory of Climatic Change
onlinelibrary.wiley.com


Tim adds:

The weasel words in the end "if no other factors change". We know other factors change. Shoot; if the planet's temperature rises it means more water vapor in the air. How does that affect climate? Does that make more cloud cover to cool the planet or does it increase warming? The whole point is the Earth's atmosphere is very complex and dynamic and to narrow it down to just CO2 is silly.dds:

Pfiser Covid Shot Tainted with DNKA

Timothy Birdnow

Health Canada admits the Pfister, er Pfiser Covid clot shot is chock full of undisclosed DNA.

It includes Simian Virus 40 (SV40) among others.

So we got a nice dose of animal virus with our vaccine.

Pfiser claimed the vaccine only contained messenger RNA but it turns out to contain entire plasmid sequences.

There is the potential for permanent damage to the DNA of recipients. And cancers.

Pfiser did not disclose this "ingredient" and only now admits they used these strands of DNA.

Why did they lie about it?

Judge in Trump Fraud case Threatens Jail for Violating Gag Order

Timothy Birdnow

So the judge in Trump's fraud case has fined him $5,000 and threatened him with jail time for violating his gag order. Trump apparently left a disparaging remark about the judge's staff on his website.

Judge says Trump risks jail time after violating gag order in civil fraud trial

Judge Erdogan said Trump's comment

"in this current overheated climate” incendiary posts can and have led to harm."

Ri-ight...

What harm, pray tell? Who is it who created the "incendiary climate" in the first place?

Talk about blaming the victim!

At any rate this story was written before the judge slapped Trump with the fine so it's not mentioned here.

The fact ist his judge has  no constitutional right to impose a gag order on Trump and he knows it. This is but election tampering; it stops Trump from defending himself before the court of public opinion during the campaign.

This guy needs to be run out of town on a rail.

Hell's Bells

Richard Cronin

The AC voltage input to a Tesla Supercharger is 480 V. Standard primary distribution is 11 KV or 33KV.

To supply a bank of Supercharger stations will require a dedicated 11KV to 480V transformer or 33KV to 480V.

If loads are added rapidly (more EVs charging simultaneously) the rectifier step ( AC to DC) is notorious for creating harmonics. The technical term for harmonics in electrical circuits is that they are "Hell’s Bells”.

But I’m certain that they have this all figured out.

The Real Estate Grab

John Madric

This is Vanguard, Blackrock, or State Street, buying up homes by the millions. They have a strategy, and that is to make nearly all Americans renters for life. Not us old farts, but the young ones just getting started. Two things this tells you. 1. They plan on eroding away the middle class. 2. Real estate remains an excellent investment going into the future. Don't buy a house, buy real estate. Learn the difference..

Steven Chase adds:

The trillions of dollars in new credit have been asymmetrically distributed: the most creditworthy with the highest incomes and collateral are the top 10%, so they scooped up most of the credit. Since real estate is so heavily dependent on credit (20% down and 80% borrowed, not like stocks and bonds), this massive influx of low-cost credit led to the top 10% accumulating investment housing.

Given our gov't fiscal policy, there was no way the wealthy wouldn't end up with the lion's share of "surplus housing," just as they ended up owning the lion's share of stocks, bonds, precious metals, cryptocurrencie

Goldberg Thinks Israel and Ukraine are the Same War

Timothy Birdnow

The neocons are at it again. Their latest is to try to conflate Israel with Ukraine, arguing they are the "same war".

The sometimes brilliant and more often imbecilic Jonah Goldberg makes that case in the liberal L.A. Times.

Goldberg, you may remember, lost his marbles over Donald Trump some time ago and continues to promote worldwide warfare and Trump hatred across the globe.

This has brought rebuttals from actual Conservatives. See here and here.

The main similarity is that both Russia and Hamas are resisting Western nations. But beyond that they are as dissimilar as they come.

Russia is resisting Western encroachment on their borders, as well as attempts to economically manipulate them. They do not want to be part of the global banking system run by Western plutocrats. And they do not want NATo encroaching on them militarily.

Hamas is different. It wants to destroy Israel because it is a "crusader state" - a non-Muslim entity that has drive the Muslims out of a large section of Palestine. They consider the whole world theirs and especially any place that has become Islamic. It enrages them that Jews are living under their own laws there; they can live there provided they acknowledge Sharia and accept Muslim domination and pay the Jizya tax.

So the "Palestinians" are waging war against a Western-supported nation of Israel. Nothing will satisfy them short of driving Israel into the sea. This is just a continuation of the war they started in 1948, nothing more, nothing less.

Russia and Ukraine have been at each-other's throats too for a long time - centuries in fact. But the current crisis there stems from modern issues and decisions, not from the same old ones, as we see in Israel.

And Iran is the primum mobilus here, moving the pieces with money largely obtained from the American taxpayer.

Now, I agree that Putin probably gave the green light to Iran to authorize this attack. I suspect Putin wanted this war in Israel to draw our attention and money away from Ukraine. And he owed us one or two. But he's not the prime mover in this.

I think Goldberg and the other neocons are crazy. They are willing to start WWIII, and that with nukes on the table, to promote their vision of a world run by the same Ruling class that gave us the U.N. and fouled up the end of the Cold War.

It's time Jonah Goldberg retire.
