Report From The ‘Rust’ Belt.

Well we made it to another Caturday.

My mood is somewhere between this:

cat terrified

and this:

evil white cat“Go ahead, make my day, punk.”

…with a definite prejudice towards the racist cat on the bottom. It’s not my fault the insanity continues unabated.

So I leave you with this:

Kyle Rittenhouse meme of the day

What under any other circumstance would be a rhetorical question now passes for legitimate cross-examination in show trials.

When I look at that supercilious soy-boy prosecutor, Binger, all I see is another politically ambitious hack looking to become a household name in order to advance his career. His ambition vastly outstrips his skill, knowledge or integrity; in other words he’s the perfect politician.

It is with great embarrassment that I note this punk prosecutor received his JD from the University of Michigan, which was once one of the greatest law schools in the land. Another great heartland institution allowed to turn to ‘Rust’.

How It Started and How It’s Going

CA extends state of emergency past 2 year mark...

Governor Gavin Newsom today extended for the third time the state of emergency in California related to the threat that Covid poses. Today’s executive order stretches declaration through March 31, 2022, at which time it will have been in effect for more than two years.

Can we stipulate to the fact that after 2 years it’s no longer an emergency? Rather it’s another real danger in what has always been a dangerous world. Only difference is that in the past every individual/family was required to determine how to navigate the dangerous shoals for themselves. That’s no longer the case. You don’t get to do that for yourself, somebody else will do that for you.

government emergency

Newsom warned that the virus could potentially spike again because “winter is coming” and with it the flu and  COVID season; no surprise there. And thus it will be from this year forward. It is the new normal and both individuals and systems need to learn how to cope and overcome not crawl under a rock and hope for the best.

My favorite part of all this autocratic nonsense is the fact that the very people who complain about the evil of the “patriarchy” are ever so keen to embrace rules forced on them by a paternalistic (minus the goodwill) government.

How it started: the Major of New York tells you what size soda he will allow you to buy.


How it’s going:

no jab no job

No Jab, No Job. Or dining, or entertainment, or surgeries, or leaseholds, or…

Veterans Day November 11, 2021


Today we remember all who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces; they deserve our respect, honor and gratitude.


Sadly today’s military is not your Dad’s (or Mom’s) military. Rather than the proficient, disciplined, skilled and adept vets of yesteryear the overlords want current recruits to be woke and poked. They will turn our proud military into a joke unless steps are taken to reverse this foolishness. Don’t look to our current Commander in Chief to spearhead that effort.

joe biden with bloody eye chairman mao haircut and jacket and face mask like girl with the pearl earringHe seems to travel to the tune of a different piper altogether.

Fortunately previous generations of men and women were able to carry on in the face of adversity without requiring trigger warnings, safe spaces and grief counseling. We are equally fortunate that there are still some who - despite our overlords best efforts – still do.


While the face of freedom’s enemy may morph over time, it never goes away. Which is why we’ll always need people on the wall, willing to do whatever is necessary to keep the malignancy at bay; people who don’t need safe spaces and for whom “trigger warning” means something altogether different than hurt feelings. It is why today we honor all those who have responded to the call to serve. Please accept my heartfelt gratitude for helping preserve the last best hope of the world.


"You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done."

Beware The Meme: More Deadly Than Prosecutorial Malfeasance

gaigegrsomethingrittenhouseAlleged Victim Gaige Grosskreutz Implodes, Admits Had Glock Pointed At Kyle When Shot, Lied to Police About It

If there’s a smoking gun in the Kyle Rittenhouse murder case, it’s going to be the one fired by the prosecutor.

FDsMW9JUYAkuzcAAt hit his foot, apparently

Defense: “When you were standing three to five feet from him with your arms up in the air, he never fired, right?”

Grosskreutz: “Correct.”

Defense: “It wasn’t until you pointed your gun at him, advanced on him, with your gun — now your hands down — pointed at him, that he fired at you, right?

Grosskreutz: “Correct.”

There is no government misconduct quite as bad as prosecutorial malfeasance. It can take your liberty, even your life. Pay attention and if your city/county’s prosecutor is an elected official who abuses the office in order to advance their own political ambitions (most do) vote them out.

But I’m glad our overlords are worried about more important things, like memes: US Surgeon General Warns Against ‘Misleading Memes’.

So I leave you with this, as a nod to Feather Day around here: Beware the Palsy-bird meme.

Keep ‘Em Coming: I’m Here All Week!

It’s still early but these two stories will certainly be contenders for this week’s most ludicrous headlines:

1. Alec Baldwin calls for police officers on movie sets to supervise gun safety.

Yeah Mr. Alec-de-fund-the-Police-Baldwin, that’s the trick: let’s put all you movie types under constant adult supervision so nobody need be responsible for anything, ever. 

“It Wasn’t My Fault!”

That pretty much sums up the left’s vision for America, where “gentle giants” are never responsible for their crimes but the police hired to protect us from criminals always are.

not my faultThe get out of jail free card: what’s in your wallet?

2. US-Mexico Border Reopens After 20 Months of COVID Disruption

Ok, this one’s just a joke, right? I mean, it’s not as if we even have a US-Mexico border anymore. Even CNN acknowledges that:

illegals crossing border2US on track to encounter record 2 million migrants on the southern border, government estimates show.

Border-CrisisKeep ‘em coming: US border open round the clock

But don’t vote just yet because as I mentioned the week is young.

It’s The Supply Chain Stupid! And OPEC. Let’s Go Brandon!

Joe Biden thinks Americans are too stupid to understand the “Supply Chain Crisis.”

“If we were all going out and having lunch together and I said let’s ask whoever’s in the next table, no matter what restaurant we’re in, have them explain the supply chain to us. Do you think they’d understand what we’re talking about?”

Actually many of us understand perfectly well that the “supply chain problem” is due to the long hand of COVID-induced mania and the stupid government policies and mandates implemented along the way.

It costs nearly $100 to fill up your gas tank these days and all the Brandon Administration can do is this:

chubby cheeked frozen foehead granholmUm, I think that’s OPEC, which is not really very opaque

Send out a Botoxed chipmunk-cheeked Energy Secretary Granholm* to laugh at us as maniacally as the VP-ho-ho-ho. And then carry on a dismissive, even derisive, discourse on how oil prices are determined by a little foreign cartel called OPEC, and there’s not one thing the Brandon Administration (BA) can do about it. (Note: that was Friday, by the Sunday morning shows she totally walked it back, as is the custom of everyone in the BA: speak the truth by mistake then claim you never said what you said and let the MSM fix it for you.)

Seriously though, one would have hoped that our Energy Secretary would know that the U.S. is a major oil producing nation and was once (way back during the Orange-Man-Bad Administration) our primary source of said oil.

But no, the BA is committed to squelching U.S. production further and driving gas and oil prices even higher. So why not back Governor Whitmer’s order to shut down another major oil pipeline from Canada? Last November Whitmer ordered the DNR to revoke the operating easement Michigan granted Enbridge more than 70 years ago to operate the twin pipelines in the Straits of Mackinac (pronounced Mack-i-naw for you non Michiganians). Because the environment…and climate change. Danger! Danger! Danger!

Enbridge has been wrangling with the Michigan DNR and the Governor ever since. And now Michigan’s Indigenous Peoples are asking the Brandon Administration for support in shutting down Line 5, claiming treaty violation.

“We view Line 5 as an existential threat to our treaty-protected rights, resources, and fundamental way of life as Anishinaabe people of the Great Lakes.”

Meanwhile, Enbridge is invoking their own treaty rights but since they are not indigenous they aren’t as valid.

While the fake climate controversy surrounding the safety of the line – already years old - rages on it delays the building of a tunnel under the Straits for the pipeline which Enbridge has proposed in order to ensure the  line’s integrity. The anti-Line 5 folks would rather have a disaster so they can say “see, I told you so.” It’s essentially a lose-lose, so good job Dems.

Do liberals not remember the pain inflicted when the Colonial Pipeline was closed for just 5 days? Closed gas stations, inflated gas prices, propane shortages…and that was during warm weather.

If the Federal government shuts down another pipeline I guarantee that Americans will understand the “supply chain” problem a whole lot better than any of the ho-ho-hos and idiots in the Brandon Administration.



*Another one of Michigan’s great female Democrat governors. Man, can we pick ‘em or what!?

Advantage: USA!

I’ve already wasted my extra hour as I just slept through it. That’s how you know for sure I don’t have a cat.

alarm clock laughingLOL indeed: It knows it’s really 8:07

So on this fine first day of non-daylight saving time, I have nothing on offer. The best I can do is showcase a charming little story out of New Zealand. It seems a couple found this huge potato growing in their garden. Since they didn’t plant it they’ve no idea how it got there. Colin explains that their gardening technique consists of “throw(ing) a bunch of cow manure and straw onto their garden and see what happens.” Showcasing their giant potato however has proved more difficult than expected, due to rapidly decaying conditions:

As the couple showed the potato off, it began drying out and losing weight. Mold started growing from its wounds. "He was getting a bit pongy," said Colin, referring to the potato's smell.

So he stuck it in the deep freeze and plans to turn it into vodka, which seems a sound plan. 

Still, weighing in at 17 pounds, they believe the potato - which they’ve named “Doug”- is the world’s largest.

giant 17 lb potato

To which I say “hold my beer New Zealand…”

handlers drop the strings while you're still on stage joe biden

Our sniffy spud – who we’ve named Joey - has your pongy potato beat by a country kilometer.


But not every country “elects” one to the highest office in the land. Although honestly, New Zealand does seem to give us a run for our money on that front as well.

Of course our Potato can yell at reporters with the best of them, so I still claim advantage: USA!
