  1. “Good evening, Vietnam”


    And this quote from “The Ancient Engineers” has a familiar sound about it –

    “But, to Greek writers, Xerxes – in real life no worse than most despots and better than some – was one of the world’s greatest villains because he had attacked Greece. Hence the writers were eager to blame him for the misdeeds that he committed but also for many that he did not commit.”


    1. The Ancient Engineers was one of the most interesting books I ever read.

        1. For now. The Ukrainians have better equipment and are far more accurate. But they don’t have Russia’s numbers. The fact that the pocket in the east has never collapsed 80 days in is telling.

  2. It’s a mystery.

    Feds and media ignoring doubling of mortality among young and middle-aged adults in latest data


    “Something is killing off large numbers of 25- to 54-year-olds in the United States, and the powers that be in government and the media are pretending it is not happening. There is no visible effort to study the alarming statistics gathered by actuaries for the life insurance industry, which keeps track of deaths because they directly impact their bottom line through claims from the insured.”

    1. DB, anyone with a functioning brain knows the experimental gene therapy shots are the reason people are dying. People believe the liars and deserve the pain they have brought to us all. Had rational thought been employed when this fraud started it would never have gained ground and destroyed millions of live and families. It is going to get much worse.

      1. VOWG, I agree. I have yet to discern their end game, however, in the sense of how are they going to justify all this? Are TPTB going to feign innocence or admit to outright malice? This will all come to a head at some point and the majority (not just the minority, like now) will be pissed.

        1. DB

          They won’t Justify anything..and up here no one will push the issue…truly CANADA is a Land of Docile Eloi. Brain dead NPC’s enslaved to their iPhone13…and WILLFULLY unaware of the virulent evil that surrounds them.

          Said PTB, are fully aware of the Mass apathy strangling the Canadian cranium….in fact they bank on it.

    1. I’m not sure how important the logic of who or what they attack is to them anymore. These people just seem addicted to hating and bullying. To many of these losers, being a woke activist is probably their first ever taste of power.

      I would suspect that the ‘old school’ liberals of just 10 yrs ago now have more in common with we conservatives than they do with their own far-left brethren. Amazing times.

      1. CO, from what I’ve seen of these idiots, logic simply does not enter the equation. It’s all about the feelz. Hence my continuous screed on the futility of trying to “Logic a Prog”.

        Over beers earlier this week, a buddy & I were discussing the continuous shift of the spectrum to the left. The left pushes left, keeps pushing, & pushes some more. Occasionally that shift will be put on hold while the right gets in, but it never moves back again. The right gets voted out & the inexorable leftward shift continues. What used to be regarded as extreme leftist policy is now conservative platform.


  3. Serious?! Balls the size of dumpsters. An amazing story.

    Pardo’s Push: An Incredible Feat of Airmanship


    “Flying at 300 miles per hour, Pardo carefully brought his plane’s nose up under the rear end of the other plane to nudge his inch-thick glass windscreen against the tailhook. Any pushing had to be done with utmost care. If the glass broke, the tailhook would smash into Pardo’s face. Pardo cautiously began to push his windscreen against Aman’s tailhook for a few seconds at a time, in each instance just until the force of turbulence thrust his plane aside. Nonetheless, Aman’s rate of descent began to slow.”

    1. That was used in an episode of the TV series JAG. At the end, there was an explanation that what was shown was based on an actual incident.

        1. If I recall correctly, it was one of the episodes that dealt with the bombing campaign in the Balkans over 20 years ago. I guess I’ll have to watch my DVDs to find out which one it is…..

      1. Welcome! The creativity of mankind to both solve problems and to survive never ceases to amaze.

      1. Short answer, nope. How are they supposed to.care if they never hear about it?

      2. VOWG, I doubt it. I realize that we’re all pretty much preaching to the choir here, but perhaps posterity will show that we weren’t the idiots they think we are.

  4. “Germany Poised to Become LNG Powerhouse”???

    “Germany’s Federal Cabinet gave the green light to draft legislation to cut the approval process for such facilities to a 10th of the usual time. Germany has long snubbed American LNG — touted as “freedom gas” by the Trump administration — miring past efforts to build terminals in lengthy bureaucracy. ”

    Maybe there is hope for Canada. We just need Russia to attack us to get a pipeline completed, to override the bureaucracy.

    1. You would accuse them of dual loyalty anyway, no matter what government document they carried.

      Russians understand perfectly that the globalists want Russia destroyed and her people enslaved or exterminated as punishment for supposedly thrusting Donald Trump into office.

      They are acting accordingly.

      And they are not ashamed to defend their right to exist. Not should they be.

      1. As usual, everything you have said is utter nonsense, Konni.

        “The difficulty in understanding the Russian is that we do not take cognizance of the fact that he is not a European, but an Asiatic, and therefore thinks deviously. We can no more understand a Russian than a Chinaman or a Japanese, and from what I have seen of them, I have no particular desire to understand them, except to ascertain how much lead or iron it takes to kill them. In addition to his other Asiatic characteristics, the Russian has no regard for human life and is an all out son of bitch, barbarian, and chronic drunk.” ~ George S. Patton

        1. A quote from Patton in no way supports your obvious dislike for Russians. Do you hate Jews as well?

          1. A quote from Patton reflects my own feelings towards the Siberian
            Mongols. It does not support, it reflects.

            As for your question: I like Jews very much. I like them as people and I like their country Israel. Also, I like Jewish pastries.

            Now kindly explain, what made you imply that my dislike for Siberian Mongols is driven by anti Semitism? Coincidently, you are aware that russians, are, and were for centuries, rabidly anti-Semitic? Right?

    2. Since February the same old blah, blah, blah from you and your mortal enemy TAT. Maybe you two need to settle this man to man, presuming your genders, rather than these continual screeds

      1. T(w)AT is not my mortal enemy. I have no mortal enemies. He is just a frustrated loser and a failure in life (both professional and family). His sexual impotence turned his wife lesbian and she left him for a woman (his words not mine). That’s is why he idolizes the rapist horde. He’d like to be like them. But he can’t. I like to remind him of that.

    1. Hey, Jagbert, you foppish dandy! A far wiser man than you, Harry S. Truman, once said, “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.”

      1. Jughead has his nose so far up TurdHole’s ass, there is no way he could tell he was being heckled. The oxygen deprivation alone would prevent him from coherent thoughts.

    2. Never trust a politician (especially a socialist) whose wrist-watch costs more than half the population’s annual salary.

  5. And more rolodex journalism from Telford’s stable of presstitutes.
    “Former PM Campbell questions direction of Conservative Party”
    More on HOW CONSERVATIVES CAN WIN!! from a 90’s diversity hire who lost her own seat and reduced a majority into two seats. How could this clown ever be called conservative and how is she still (or ever was) relevant?

    1. It’s really unfortunate for Canada that someone as dumb as Kim Campbell has been the only female prime minister in Canada. I’m sure that train wreck threw Canadians off voting for women by 100 years. When intending to buy her Liberal Party membership she got into the Conservative line by mistake. That’s how dumb she is.

      1. Dim Kim! could give Climate Barbie a run for her money for the title of the dumbest woman in Canada.

    1. The picture of the ham and his daughter shows a vintage radio which I can’t identify. That’s what’s often referred to as a “boat anchor”.
