Since I am off for the coming Thanksgiving week I have been doing work around The Gulch in preparation for the upcoming winter. Much of that deals with rearranging things in the garage, moving things used during spring, summer, and fall out of the way and making sure all those things needed for winter are easy to reach. Not that there’s a lot that needs to be moved, but it’s where it needs to be moved that takes time – from the garage up into the attic and vice versa. A few things will also need to be moved between the garage and the Official Weekend Pundit Storage Unit.
There will also be some last cleanup around the outside of The Gulch, mostly cleaning up the last of the leaves from both the ground and out of the gutter along the front side of the roof.
And then during the rest of the week…
It looks like the kid gloves are coming off as Elon Musk is filing a “thermonuclear lawsuit” against Media Matters and "all those who colluded" for "completely misrepresenting" the real user experience on X.
Musk is saying Media Matters falsely pushed ‘news’ that X was supporting "white nationalist and antisemitic conspiracy theories" when in fact no such support was given or implied. This in turn triggered a number of corporate advertisers to pull their ads (and the revenue that goes with them). Says Musk:
X has seen a number of attacks from activist groups like Media Matters and legacy media outlets who seek to undermine freedom of expression on our platform because they perceive it as a threat to their ideological narrative and those of their financial supporters.It will be interesting to see how well Musk does against the leftist media organizations, the same organizations that have no problems censoring ideas and opinions that disagree with their Marxist doctrine.
I am beginning to agree the only way to salvage the FBI as a law enforcement agency is to fire everyone and start from scratch. It has shifted from law enforcement to becoming the leg-breakers and a 21st century version of the Geheim Staatzpolizei, working on the behalf of the Party, in this case the DNC, SloJoe, and WRBA (Whoever is Running the Biden Administration).
What has me thinking this?
How about this?
On January 6, 2021, the FBI explicitly chose to abandon a sting on a child pornographer in Virginia who was messaging with an undercover agent about having sex with a nine-year-old boy, opting instead to focus on prosecuting Donald Trump’s supporters who stormed the U.S. Capitol. Less than three years later, the FBI discovered the same man living in Alaska where he appears to have been performing sex acts on a 10-year-old boy, according to court documents.Yeah, it was far more important to railroad J6 protesters, particularly those who had done nothing wrong, to let the people know that no opposition to the Party would be allowed.
On December 2, 2020, an internet user with the screen name “gayboy69freak” messaged an undercover agent with the FBI’s Washington Field Office, who was posing as a father pimping out his 9-year-old son, and told him that he wanted to travel to D.C. to have sex with the boy. The man also sent the agent a video of “a prepubescent minor male being anally penetrated by an adult male’s erect penis.” His IP address led the FBI to Brogan Welsh of Glenn Allen, Virginia.
What appears to be a slam-dunk case against a child predator was abruptly abandoned just one month later.
The only way to fix the FBI is to clean house.
As dumb as a box of rocks.
Do these people understand what the people they are supporting would do to them if they ever met?
I’m guessing the answer is a resounding “No”.
Gee, it seems California talks a good game...but they don’t deliver. Case in point: 40% of EV charging stations in LA don’t work.
As Cap’n Teach notes, “One would think that a place like LA would have operational charging stations, considering that California was the first state to mandate all of the peasants having to forgo petrol cars, well before Let’s Go Biden pushed his mandate.” I have to wonder whether those non-functional charging stations are located where most of the neo-serfs live. Only the New Nobility will have access to working EV charging stations. Let the peasants take the bus, or better yet, walk.
Joanna Stern, a WSJ reporter, visited over 120 EV charging stations throughout LA and found many of them didn’t work for one reason or another.
This is only part of the problem.
It won’t matter of charging stations aren’t functional if there’s no electricity to run them. Considering how fragile its electrical grid has become and it’s decreasing generation capacity – caused by California’s obsession with over the top environmental regulations and laws - even working EV charging stations will be unusable because there will be no electricity available to operate them.
As such, one has to wonder if that is the actual intent of California’s Progressive-run government.
And that’s the news from Lake Winnipesaukee, where preparations for Thanksgiving continue apace, pre-winter cleanup continues, and where I don’t have to worry about Monday this week.
