Alyssa Milano & The 'Blue Cult' of Conspiracy Theories Do CPAC

They're all sharing the same image that they just learned about today. They genuinely think the floor design of #CPAC2021 is a Nazi dog whistle. 
"Having worked with Norse and Elder Futhark iconography for years, I’m quite alert to the glyph shapes and their associations in the modern world and history. So, why is the #CPAC2021 stage an Odal rune, and specifically one with serifs (or wings) that was used by the SS?" 
And what’s a conspiracy theory without Alyssa Milano to help push it on the tweeter machine? After all, she is may be Hollywood's foremost expert at spotting Nazis.
The venue hosting CPAC has been threaten with boycott, but released a statement basically saying shove off.

The mania behind this is laughable and it shows just how easily the impressionable are led down a path by these propagandist.  It’s also a bit concerning that none of these people have enough critical thinking skills at all to understand that’s not a rational conclusion, and they go on to repeat anyway.  It also shows how unfamiliar they are with Republican thought, they only know what they’ve been told.  While you think that CPAC would be a fun event with interesting speeches and things to do, they think it’s a cabal of racists and white supremacists sharing secret symbols built into the stage, and “attacking” Jim Acosta because attendees chanted “CNN sucks” at him, which was why he was there.

These people are unwell. Take away all their hate, and what's left is a bunch of sniveling crybabies. And I'm being nice.

Middle Finger Symphony Theater


Brought To You By BLUESJUNKY: Chair of Music - Middle Finger Symphony Music Director


On the morning of Sunday, October 14, 1962, Juanita Moody exited the headquarters of the National Security Agency, at Fort Meade, Maryland, and walked the short distance to her car, parked in one of the reserved front-row spaces. The sky was a crystalline blue, “a most beautiful day,” she recalled later. Moody had just learned that the U.S. Air Force was sending a U-2 spy plane to take high-altitude photographs of military installations. Moody was worried for the pilot—twice already in the past two years a U-2 had been shot out of the sky. American military leaders and the intelligence community believed that something unusual was up. Exactly what, no one could say. “I went out and got into my old convertible at the precise moment I had been told this pilot was going to get into his plane,” Moody said.

What unfolded over the next two weeks was arguably the most dangerous period in the history of civilization. One of the most extraordinary omissions in this story to date is the central role played by Moody, a 38-year-old during the perilous fall of 1962. Even today her name is largely unknown outside the agency, and some details of her contributions to the nation’s security remain closely guarded.

Moody, who died in 2015 at age 90, and quietly buried at Arlington National Cemetery, was forever discreet. When asked about her past, she would deflect. As one friend remembered her saying, "Oh, I’ve done lots of interesting things for a country girl from North Carolina."

This is a long but interesting read of a time and place much different than our own. A time many of you lived through. I highly recommend you take the time and read her story.

Progressives' Good Riddance Attitude Toward Small Business


Progressives have become increasingly cavalier about the economic consequences of raising the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour. One such disciple of doom to small business is Rep. Ro Khanna (D–Calif.) who said on CNN earlier this week when asked about whether hard-pressed small businesses would be able to absorb the mandated pay hike "I think $15 is very reasonable in this country."

Khanna's seemingly blasé acknowledgment that the Democrats' minimum wage proposal would force some small businesses to shut down sparked immediate criticism. But progressive allies of Khanna claim if a business is unable to pay a $15 minimum, that business should not be considered a viable enterprise. In other words, Good Riddance.

It must be noted here that Ro Khanna is a lawyer and former Deputy Assistant Secretary in the Department of Commerce in Barky Obama's regulation happy Administration, has never produced or sold anything and obviously should, but doesn't, know what small business have to do to stay afloat.  But a callous attitude towards small business owners in light of the difficulties they're already facing amid a pandemic and related public health restrictions is par for the course for these regressive troglodytes.

Given how many mom-and-pop operations would struggle to cope with a $15 federal minimum wage, these progs like Khanna are writing off a huge number of existing businesses that are the back bone of America as essentially worthless.  Nationally, about a third of small businesses have closed since the start of the pandemic.  And even if one isn't inclined to shed a tear for mom-and-pop businesses, it's not like the current lower-wage employees of those businesses would be made better off either. They'd stand to make $0 an hour if their employer shuts down. And even if the business does survive, those employees still risk cuts to their hours.

Grocery stores are particularly sensitive to sudden increases in their labor costs given the typically tight margins those businesses operate on. Even if one thinks it's fine for businesses that pay low wages to go extinct, their shuttering also means fewer job options for low-wage workers and fewer entry level jobs for young adults in poorer communities. There's no social justice in that.

I must also note here, as I have about others in previous posts, that Rep. Khanna is another first generation child of immigrants, who's parents came through the system and immigrated legally, were welcomed with open arms and granted all the advantages and privileges' of the native born, contributed to America greatness and lived a successful life, only to have their regressive douchebag offspring go to work to tear it all down in the name of cancerous progressivism. This putz need to be unseated and sent back to chasing ambulances for a living.

The Card

In a rare public appearance, President 46* pulled out a card made for him so he can remember important facts, like he's the president not a Senator. He forgot he wasn’t supposed to tell anyone about the card.

Beware: New Right Leaning News Platform 'Rightly' Is Brought To You By The Folks At Al Jazeera

According to Politico, Al Jazeera, the Qatar-based news network that has previously sought
unsuccessfully to become a liberal media force in the US, is now going to burn more piles of cash launching a platform to target conservatives.

The new effort, called 'Rightly', will target Republicans who "feel left out of mainstream media".  It will be led by a former Fox News journalist Scott Norvell (?) also of the defuncted news site Heat Street. 

Al Jazeera became a significant presence in the US in 2013, when it launched the left-leaning Al Jazeera America news channel and website.  The network funded by the state of Qatar, closed down the US TV channel in 2016.

Privately, some Al Jazeera staff expressed dismay at the launch of Rightly, wondering how it squared with the network’s previously stated commitments to giving voice to marginalized communities.  Al Jazeera has been seen suspiciously by many on the right for what appeared to be left-wing bias when reporting the news.  Al Jazeera America, launched with great fanfare in 2013 with an outlay of $500 million and hired high-profile journalists from CNN to launch the rivalling CNN, Fox News and MSNBC, only to crashed and burn in three years.

In the current political climate in this country, I don't see an Arab venture into the open sewer of the American news media any more successful than the previous attempt to lure lefties.  Nor would I trust it as a source any more than the Russian 'RT' network.

Merrick Garland: Portland Riots May Not Be ‘Domestic Terrorism’ Because They Are At Night

Nominee for Attorney General, Merrick Garland, took questions in his Senate hearing yesterday in support of his nomination by President 46*.  When asked his thoughts on "assaults on federal property in places other than Washington, DC", he replied in essence that while the attack on the Capitol was domestic terrorism, the attacks on federal buildings over the summer in Portlandia and Seattle likely were not.
"Do you regard assaults on federal courthouses or other federal property as acts of domestic extremism, domestic terrorism?”  
"Well Senator, my own definition, which is about the same as the statutory definition, is the use of violence or threats of violence in an attempt to disrupt democratic processes. 
An attack on a courthouse while in operation, trying to prevent judges from actually deciding cases, that plainly is domestic extremism, domestic terrorism."
So, it seems if attacks on police and federal courthouses take place after hours when court was not in session, it's just a run of the mill vandalism?? 

Look, I spent many an evening and into early mornings watching live streams of large contingents of well organized jacked up black clad, meth enable fascist, when not destroying store fronts and setting fire to a Starbucks, attack news crews, intimidate bystanders, using industrial fireworks, bats, bricks and frozen water bottles against police, and setting fires at doors while blocking other exits to the the federal buildings with police inside in Portland and Seattle. They have killed before. 

In Portland, their main objective were/are the jails and releasing the inmates, mostly of color, held by the racist courts on the upper floors of the court house. If they were to breach the building there wouldn't have been anything like you saw at the capital building. There wouldn't be just ransacking of offices and feet on desk. They were intent on releasing the inmates and burned it to the ground. And you can bet that with their numbers, there would have be more than one dead federal agent as was the case in DC. These are real Domestic Terrorist, Judge.

And no, my good Judge Garland, you don't and never will belong on the Supreme Court with your anti second amendment views.  And if you spend your time and our money chasing small unorganized groups of zealot hillbillies in red hats who most are probably more of a danger to their wives than our democracy, and not removing these  destructive Antifa anarchist off the streets by any means necessary, then you have no business being the Attorney General of the United States either!   *Drops Mic*
