Random Thoughts July 12, 2020

Note: These “Random Thoughts” have replaced my linkfests.  I like the format – I get to expound more on a few topics rather than “quick hitting” when there are so many places to get lots of info like that, e.g., my I READ… list on the left.  Many of these places are where I get my info from anyway.  Please click through from here so they see traffic coming from me.


Lead-in clickbait image from one of my Rule 5 posts, specifically done to get traffic:

Inspired by the poem:

Mary had a little dress
With a slit way up the side
And no matter how Mary moved
Her leg she could not hide

Mary had another dress
With a slit straight up the front
She didn’t wear it much

Yes, I know it’s clickbait.  Deal with that.  Give me a better way to get eyeballs short of my giving away money, I’ll do that instead.  And please share this post, and subscribe!

Anyone know how to add an anonymous Paypal button?  I don't want to, but I'm investing significant time in these, and nobody's buying shirts or bumper stickers or mugs... OR clicking through Amazon (I had over 100 clicks on links in the last week with not one purchase.  I do these posts for love of America and Western Civilization... but a little remuneration would be nice

And can fellow bloggers please help me make this bumper sticker go viral?


Any link in yellow is a link to a purchase that supports me.  Any link in cyan is to something I’ve posted previously.  And anything in magenta is an organization that – IMHO – deserves a donation or paid subscription.

And please do check out my last five non-Rule Five posts (any multi-part posts count as one; quickie-posts put together and counted as one):

Three blast-from-the-past posts – picked at my whim:

Speaking of the past: Volume I and Volume II.  (If I get inspired I may just fold them all into one…)

Don’t forget my CARTOONS.  Here’s one:

And for those interested, my last two Rule Five posts (again, preview images are clickbait, I know… so sue me) – and a notice on Rule Five posts in general:


RIGHT UP FRONT: THIS.  The Bobby Watson video is absolutely worth it to take the time to jaunt to Irish’s place.

This guy makes an awful lot of sense.


It’s not the first, and certainly not the last, post that will highlight the barking moonbat reaction to President Trump commuting Roger Stone’s sentence.

Stone was utterly railroaded.

But my initial, rage-filled counter-reaction to all these weepy protestations about the “rule of law”:

You mother*ckers cheered and feted that commie POS Barackus and his cabal – Her Heinous the Crone of Chappaqua, Clapper, Comey, Brennan, Page, Strzok, Biden, Pelosi, Schumer, Nadler, Schiff, Kerry, and others – as they *ss-raped the Constitution, the peaceful transition of power, and the rule of law for years... with the planning starting before Trump even got the nomination… and now you discuss the sacredness of the “rule of law”?



And an interesting compare-contrast of the reaction to Stone vs. their reaction to the commutation of sentence of Susan Rosenberg, a member of an actual terrorist organization, by leaving-office President Clinton.

Related to this – how do you coexist with people like this, because it’s clear they have no intention of coexisting with you:

What astonishes me, to no end, is my fellow Jews aversion to firearms; Never Again? Why are most American Jews ignoring history and today's reality?

King Shaul and his son, Yonatan, were said to have received spears from G-d to preserve Israel and maintain freedom and independence.  How dare we – how dare we – not take up arms now to be ready to fight to preserve G-d’s twin gifts: life and liberty?


So I recently got, from my sole-surviving sibling, several family artifacts from our father’s side:

  • Our great-grandmother’s wedding dress
  • The groom’s vest too
  • Our grandmother’s silver salt and pepper shaker, engraved with her married initials
  • One place setting of that same grandmother’s silverware with her maiden initials
I also have a few silver kiddush cups from my mother’s side; my wife identified the markings as being from Russia – my mother’s side having been Shtetl Jews in Lithuania, Belarus, and Poland before making Aliyah to Israel, along with two small candlesticks, and my maternal grandfather’s cigarette case.

I have filing cabinets of family history and genealogy books that I hope to be able to go through soon.  I need to make time to do that.  I have two boxes of daguerreotypes of ancestors who, mostly, I don’t know; alas, they’re not labeled.  Same for several family picture albums whose pictures, if they have labels at all, are things like “To mother, love E”.  Which, I suppose, is a small clue.  But not much.

Based on the lack of labeling of my father’s side pictures, as my late mother and I cleaned out a decades-held storage space we found bags of pictures from her side which I mandated she label to the best of her ability.  After she, too, passed, I found another – unlabeled, dammit – bag but, fortunately, was able to leverage surviving members of the family to help me identify the persons therein.

I’ve joined the Sons of the American Revolution and signed the kids up for Children of the American Revolution (memberships lapsed; I don’t have the spare funds).  I have two confirmed Revolutionary War ancestors, with at least two others that I haven’t confirmed – i.e., done the documentation-trace – yet.  Same for the Mayflower Society.  With my father’s deep Great Migration roots I am sure I have more than the one Mayflower ancestor.

My mother’s side?  Much harder.  There’s a lot of work that I’ve found, but with the Shoah plus everyone being overseas it’s difficult.  Again, I don’t have the funds to hire people who know what they’re doing.  And my wife’s side?  I asked once.  The answer?  “A hundred years ago we were nomads – we don’t have records”!

Talk to your older relatives.  Get their stories.  Get their knowledge.  I’ve been trying to collect, from their still-surviving friends and my still-surviving relatives, stories and anecdotes of my parents and grandparents.  Which reminds me, there are people I need to pester.  And, actually, a few reminiscences I should write.


(HT Gorges)

I recall having posted about having to pay my property taxes before but don’t recall where I said it.  I did post this:

My life lost her job.  My income has been cut by 1/3.  Meanwhile…

My property taxes have not changed by one cent.  Nor have my bills or health insurance.  More broadly, myriad businesses near where I live have closed forever – livelihoods destroyed, life’s work erased.  And our governor and government sail on merrily not paying a price.  Aside from the vague threat at the polls, months away, and a political machine that sneers and says “So, what, you really going to vote third party, so what choice do you have?” they have zero incentive to counterbalance the scale to get things open.



(HT VladTepes)

There was a line in the great sci-fi series Babylon Five:

Only an idiot fights a war on two fronts.  Only the heir to the throne of the kingdom of idiots fights a war on twelve fronts.

Here’s the video clip where that’s said:

[Babylon 5: Londo Molari and Reefa / 4:43]

Going back to the first video… face value, or a ploy between Putin and Xi to spoof the US (and the EU)?  Nothing involving Putin, let alone Xi, can be trusted IMHO.  But in general, is there anyone touching China with whom they don’t have border disputes and potential military clashes?

I’ve said before, my opinion is that the world is littered with stacks of dry tinder, and they’re all connected.  People are out there playing with matches.  And when one goes, they’re all going to go unless we’re very, very lucky.



Can you just feel the wonderful benefits of being diverse and multi-cultural, and want more of them to come to the West?


Not just Zimbabwe.  The world.  The whole world is a house of trembling debt cards and markers stacked well past insanity.  The financial collapse is coming.  The only relevant questions are:

  • When will it start?
  • How bad will it get?
  • How long will it last?
  • What other ripple effects – e.g., wars – might result?
  • What would recovery look like?
  • What can I do to maximize my family’s chances of survival?

And now, after “appearing” something like two trillion dollars – that’s two million million dollars – out of thin air:

[$2 Trillion 2020 US Government Bail-Out Stimulus Visualized in $100 Bills / 1:35]

(HT this must-read article at BayouRenaissanceMan)

There’s talk of another multi-trillion round of stimulus payments; Another Round Of Stimulus Checks Seems Likely—But Fewer People May Get Them.

I never got a first round so I’m not expecting a second one.  But this is folly building on folly.  At some point the bill will come due whether through debt, crushing taxes, or hyperinflation.  Catastrophically due.

I recall, as I write this part, a conversation with a covidiot that I had.  I didn’t come back snarkily in my last email to them – well, OK, not overly snarky – but this adoption of Sam Adam’s famous quote came to mind.  Original in image:

Please grab and use as a NITZAKHON QUOTABLE if you like:

Crouch down and lick the hand that masks you, contact-traces you, isolates and house-arrests you, force-vaccinates you, and may even ID chip and social credit score you.  May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were ever our countrymen!

And kind-of related, and I grumble but must give credit where it’s due even if I don’t like the source, to my utter astonishment I find myself agr… agree… agreeing with Louis Farrakhan on something; Farrakhan is actually right: Anthony Fauci and Bill Gates are trying to “depopulate the Earth” with coronavirus vaccines:

“Dr. Fauci, Bill Gates and Melinda – you want to depopulate the Earth,” he added. “What the hell gave you that right? Who are you to sit down with your billions to talk about who can live, and who should die?”

Echoing what many “truthers” have been saying for years now, Farrakhan went on to curse these globalist monsters, declaring publicly that their “work is coming to an end quickly, because you have sentenced billions to death.”

Now, as I’ve said repeatedly, I am not anti-vaccine in general.  Beyond understanding of vitamins and their importance in human health (e.g., see scurvy), germ theory and antibiotics, vaccines are generally – IMHO – responsible for saving more lives than almost anything else mankind has done.  E.g., see a book I read in high school:

Not just for travelers; everyday awareness.  I’ve just received these two:

And I’ve just stumbled on some videos about situational awareness, which I need to vet before I post them.  Related:

(This is repeated from last time given its importance for safety.)

I fear this may become a necessary reality given their dragging people from cars.


Start buying Goya products (I already do, but I’m switching to them for more).  And do two things:

First, write to Goya saying you support their CEO’s freedom of speech under the First Amendment – AND to say that you’re starting / enhancing your purchases because of his support for President Trump:

Goya Foods, Inc.
350 County Road
Jersey City, NJ 07307

My recommendation is to do it via the website contact to avoid clogging their mail or making them pay for disposal of the physical letters.  IMHO I recommend stating you don’t need an acknowledgement – so as to avoid tying their people up unnecessarily.

Second, reversing things, start sending your physical shopping receipts to the DNC with the Goya products circled:

430 South Capitol Street Southeast
Washington, DC 20003

Clog their mailboxes, swamp their offices, and raise their garbage output.  More


Out of all the cartoons I've had done, this was the first - and is still my favorite!


Quote (bolding added):

Even accepting that given, any objective look at the parameters of the national discussion leading into this election makes it clear that 2020 is not only an important election, but indeed, a domestic existential crisis unlike any this country has seen since 1860 on the eve of the Civil War. For the first time in modern history, the presidential election will be a choice between a party that loves America, and a party that openly hates it.

Worth the time, IMHO.  And I think I’m adding Vern’s Stories to the blogroll next update.  And a question: Will there be a “United States of America” on its 250th birthday?  My personal opinion is a firm NO.  I hope yes, but reality intrudes on that hope.


READ THE WHOLE THING.  I’ve see this guy’s video interviews (and posted him).  It’s chilling what he predicted, and what we’re seeing now.  Remember what I've repeatedly said: these people are MISSIONARIES with a LONG GAME.

There are no guarantees that if Trump wins, and we retake the House, and keep the Senate, we’re safe even for two years.  I do guarantee, though, that if we don’t do a triple-hit win of the above, it’s time for The .223 Solution It will be inevitable.  They're open about their goals now:


Ending on a light note:

  1. This is a great post, at many levels, but I especially enjoy your friend in the red dress. Hey, don't be jealous.

    Oh, btw, SMASH THE LEFT.
