I authored this paper for an individual who wishes that the name be removed.  The name has been redacted from the copy provided here. In order to assist the reader with a framework for understanding this paper, it should first be emphasized that it is written from a very specific theological perspective.  The necessary presuppositions are outlined at the beginning. It could of course be objected that there may be other (what I am calling "committed Christians") who do not hold one or…… [read more]

Joe Biden And The “Palmist”

BY Herschel Smith

What a goober.  Every second grader knows how to pronounce the word Psalm (second grade at the latest).

The man is a colossal embarrassment.  If it weren’t for the awful things he and his administration will do over the next four years, I’d almost wish he was elected for the sake of having something to lampoon.

Just So You Understand The Stakes In The Upcoming Georgia Election Runoff

Breitbart.

Breitbart News reported Ossoff’s proposed ban on the sale of semiautomatic rifles, citing his campaign website, where he says, “I support a ban on the sale of semi-automatic rifles (“assault weapons”) and high-capacity magazines to the general public.”

During an MSNBC interview Ossoff expounded on his views, citing his support for a license requirement in instances where a semiautomatic firearm–rifle or handgun–is already privately owned. He said, “For semiautomatic weapons, whether they are rifles or handguns, we need strict licensing requirements.”

What on earth happened to the state of Georgia anyway?

The runoff elections in Georgia (it’s a stupid rule anyway) will make the difference in whether fraudster election Biden’s team makes life exponentially more difficult for firearms owners.

Election 2020: More Evidence Of Voter Fraud

Dogs who vote.

And in case anyone claims to you that there is no evidence, when someone swears an affidavit in court, that’s a big deal.  They are risking prison time for perjury if they are lying.

Rolling Civil War

Via WRSA, this.

The Fox News/ New York Post angle is particularly enticing. Why are they suddenly supporting Biden? Way beyond internal family squabbles worthy of the Successionsaga, Rupert Murdoch made it very clear, via the laptop from hell caper, that he has all sorts of kompromat on the Biden family. So they will do whatever he wants. Murdoch does not need Trump anymore.

Nor, in theory, does the GOP. Former CIA insiders assure of serious backroom shenanigans going on between GOP honchos and the Biden-Harris gang. Trade-offs bypassing Trump – which most of the GOP hates with a vengeance. The most important man in Washington will be in fact GOP Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell.

[ … ]

So this has nothing to do with governors, not to mention the media. It’s up to GOP state legislatures to act accordingly. The drama may roll out for weeks. The first step of the Electoral College procedure takes place on December 14. The final determination will only happen in early January.

Meanwhile, talk of a New Resistance is spreading like wildfire.

Trumpism, with 71 million + votes, is firmly established as a mass movement. No one in the GOP commands this kind of popular appeal. By sidelining Trumpism, the GOP may be committing seppuku.

Oh I think so.  Furthermore, none of this is going away.  I think the entirety of America may be committing seppuku.

Best And Most Succinct Explanation Of The Coup I’ve Seen

BY Herschel Smith
11 months, 1 week ago

This is what they had planned, as well as what went wrong in their plans (via WRSA).

The plan was simple.

Saturate the media with polls showing a blue wave and an inevitable victory. Discourage people from voting in person. And then, after tabulating the paltry votes of those who defied the media to vote in person, dump all the tampered, altered, and harvested ballots for Biden in key cities.

Even before Election Day, the Democrats knew their plan was going awry. Suddenly, instead of urging their base to use mail-in ballots they were, just as loudly, telling them to vote in person.

Why? Too few Republicans were voting by mail and too many were going to vote in person.

If the Election Day numbers tilted too decisively to President Trump before suddenly going Biden’s way, the election would look rigged, and there would be an outcry from Republicans.

Despite last minute efforts urging Democrats to vote in person, that’s exactly what happened.

Once again, Democrats had overreached, committed a massive crime, and have been left with no choice except to ride the tiger. That’s what happened last time when the Obama administration allied with the Clinton campaign to eavesdrop on its political opponents. And then doubled down with investigations and indictments, not of the perpetrators, but the victims.

Despite the blatant irregularities in key battleground states, they’re doubling down again.

The American Coup is underway. In classic Leninist fashion, its initial goal is to control the propaganda and the process. The media has declared Biden to be the winner while mass celebratory gatherings cheer the new order. Big Tech censors any skepticism about the election.

And the same faction that declared four years ago that casting doubt on an election was patriotic and the best defense of democracy now claims exactly it’s treason.

The only Democrat rule is that it’s patriotic when they do it and treason when their opponents do. That’s not how ‘democrats think. It’s how dictators rule.

All of this is a sideshow. What really matters is the process, not the propaganda. The propaganda is meant to divert attention from how implausible the media’s numbers are.

Republican turnout rose, instead of falling, in in-person voting, and the GOP also went into Election Day with clear leads in mail-in ballots in key battleground states, including Wisconsin and Michigan. The tide of Biden ballots that arrived during the night resulted in implausible turnout figures. The photos, videos, and whistleblower accounts of poll and postal workers tampering with ballots didn’t take long to show up. And just as quickly to be censored.

The odd numbers mostly came out of urban areas run by notoriously corrupt political machines. And the race between those trying to steal and unsteal the election began with a power struggle. In Philly and Detroit, efforts were made to keep Republican observers out of view.

In Philly, it took a court order to even get the observers within sight of the ballots, while the city continued to fight the ruling. In Detroit, windows were covered up with cardboard, and Republican observers were locked out. Potentially tens of thousands of ballots were illegally transposed with no Republican observers. In Pennsylvania, Democrat operatives had been illegally given access to rejected mail-in ballots so that they could arrange for provisionals. And back in Detroit, workers were told to backdate ballots that had arrived after the election.

In Wisconsin, thousands of witness statements may have been illegally altered.

Meanwhile the glitches, errors, and irregularities began piling up.

He encapsulated it very nicely.  Once in, they had to “ride the tiger.”

Professor Mann of Penn State was trying to prove something he couldn’t prove about global warming.  Most people misunderstand the intent of his seminal (but falsified) paper.

He wasn’t really trying to prove that the globe was warming, although that was one outcome.  He was trying to prove that there was correspondence between tree ring data and global temperature (which would then allow him to show global temperature rise).  Since global temperature has only recently been measured and tree ring data has been around for much longer, he wanted to show similar graphs.

The trouble for Mann was always that it was false.  The tree ring data stayed on course in a relatively similar direction, while global temperature actually decreased during this tree ring data graph.  He had to “hide the decline.”

So that’s what he did.  For years he refused to release his raw data.  Unfortunately for him, it was leaked and researchers finally saw what he had done.  He adjusted the data to hide the “hockey stick” decline in global temperatures.  He was, and always will be, a complete fraud, just like his global temperature model.

Joe Biden is a fraud, and the hockey stick vote tally, common around the country in swing states, is one more instance of the Mann proposition: If you can’t be truthful and win, just lie.

His Fraudulency, Joe Biden

BY Herschel Smith

Insty.

MEET ‘HIS FRAUDULENCY,’ JOE BIDEN: Presidents sometimes get unflattering nicknames. John Adams was known to some as “His Rotundity” and John Tyler, who only succeeded to the presidency upon the death of William Henry Harrison, inevitably became “His Accidency.” I just heard “His Fraudulency” suggested for Joe Biden.

Very well.  I’m convinced.  From now until I pass away from the earth, Biden will be known to me as “His Fraudulency, Joe Biden.”

I will pass it own to all of my family, friends, loved ones, and readers.  I will never stop using the appellation.

Biden The Bewildered

News.

“It’s estimated that 200 million people will die probably by the time I finish this talk,” claimed the 77-year-old career politician.

Correction.  “It’s estimated that 200 million more of my brain cells will die probably by the time I finish this talk.”

Grumpy Old Man Biden On Guns And Everything

Just remember these words: “Biden’s blonde leg hair.”

The most amazing thing about this, though, is the reaction from David Frum.  This is no joke.  I initially thought this was some sort of parody, but it’s not.

Kind of amazing that anybody thinks this video makes Biden look anything other than terrific. He shushes the aide who wants to lead him away – and then engages a hostile critic face to face, fact to fact. Impressive.”

Hey David, when did you sell your soul to the devil?

The Court Jester, Joe Biden, Weighs In Again On Shotguns And AR-15s

BY Herschel Smith
8 years, 6 months ago

Washington Examiner:

“You know, they make fun of my saying about use a shotgun if someone’s invading your home – guess what, use a shotgun  someone invading your home and you don’t kill your kids – use an AR-15, it goes through your wall and it can kill your kid in the bedroom.”

Now I point you to Box O’ Truth concerning shotguns and rifles through drywall.  I’ll let you read the whole thing, but the bottom line is that rifle rounds and shot penetrate drywall.  To be clear, my opinion is that if this had been tissue (or ballistic gelatin), the AR-15 rounds would have begun to fragment because the drag coefficient is so much higher.  They are after all frangible rounds and they are designed to do this (except for steel core such as PMC green tip and similar rounds).  But if you miss, drywall is no protection regardless of what you’re shooting – handgun, rifle or shotgun.

Know you backstop.  Use of a gun anywhere is dangerous, and you must observe the rules of safety.  It is a gun. It is dangerous by definition. And for heaven’s sake, don’t listen to the court jester concerning anything.

Joe Biden On ARs and Shotguns

BY Herschel Smith
8 years, 8 months ago

Crazy uncle Joe in his own words.

“You don’t need an AR-15, it’s harder to aim, it’s harder to use,” he stressed.

Biden indicated that he has given his own wife the same advice. “I said, ‘Jill, if there’s ever a problem, just walk out on the balcony here, put that double-barreled shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house,’” he said, and urged viewers, in closing, “Buy a shotgun, buy a shotgun!”

Right.  Hand a double-barrel (I assume, 12 gauge) shotgun to a potentially small frame woman, tell her to shoot both barrels into the air, wasting her shots and leaving her defenseless, and dispense with actually aiming a weapon.

My dumb-ass dog is smarter than him.  Seriously.  Folks, do … not … ever … take an approach like this in situations of threat to your person.  Ever.  There are so many things wrong with this it’s hard to know where to begin.  First of all, do not ever leave yourself no means of egress if you are under threat, and do not ever approach the person who is threatening you.  In Castle-doctrine states you don’t have to retreat in your own home, but that’s different than recommending that someone walk out of their home.

Second, the choice of weapons should be up to the shooter, but a 12 gauge shotgun has some kick, and she may not be able to handle it.  The 5.56 mm round has much less recoil, aided by the buffer spring in the AR which absorbs much of the recoil.  Finally, no self defense expert recommends warning shots.  In fact, forget self defense experts.  No serious person anywhere recommends warning shots.

Just please.  Seriously.  Do not ever do what he is recommending.  He’s just crazy uncle Joe being himself.
