Requiem for Grandma

Growing up on ‘Holt Hill’ in Vendor, Arkansas, I was truly blessed. I had a touch of the ‘Old South’ that I now have oft read of; a true, closed community of my own people who endured hardship, drought and war, and came out stronger as a result.

Of the many giants who walked through my childhood, there is one I feel I have neglected to mention in my past scribblings, one who held the family together through loss and gain, through thick and thin, through hardship and privation and good times and excellent years: my great-grandmother. But I just always called her grandma.

Kwanzaa Is A Fake Holiday Invented By A Criminal Marxist

 Via Cousin John


Spanning from Dec. 26 to the first of January is Kwanzaa, the invented African American holiday celebrated solely by white liberals and clueless public school teachers. Overblown by leftist claiming the holiday has immense cultural significance, a survey by the National Retail Foundation discovered only 1.6 percent of Americans celebrate Kwanzaa.

Over 200 Marines Kicked Out for Not Taking Coronavirus Vaccine

 U.S. Marines and sailors of the 1MEF (1st Marine Expeditionary Force) salute the flag prior to the arrival of U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney during a campaign stop July 27, 2004 in Camp Pendleton, California. Vice President Cheney is on a campaign tour of California as the Democrats hold their …

More than 200 Marines have been kicked out of the Marine Corps for choosing not to take the coronavirus vaccine, the Marine Corps announced Thursday.

“To date, 206 Marines have been separated from the Marine Corps with the vaccine refusal discharge code,” the Marine Corps said in an a press release Thursday morning.

With thousands more unvaccinated, more discharges are likely on the way.

The deadline for the active duty Marine Corps to comply with the Biden Pentagon’s coronavirus vaccine mandate was November 28, aligned with the Department of the Navy’s deadline.

Podcast Updates


I'm posting this update to let all those on the blog know what's happening. There are a few people who have helped me try to get the word out about the status of the nation since the fight over Obamacare and one of them is Concerned American at Western Rifle Shooters Association (WRSA). I interviewed CA for Episode #3 of Texas TL in Exile. I'm going to link all of the episodes up to date, but the third one is one that should interest most of those who read this blog.

Submit For Your Consideration  

 This has got to stop. I'm talking about the criticism based upon them not adhering to real science. Stop expecting them to adhere to scientific method or principals thereof; this entire bamboozle was never founded upon science. It has bred purely political since the beginning. Just because they ramble on about science this, science that should not conjure the expectation that it is anything to do with science.

They have created an illusion which has played to the perception of anyone who had thought or, especially, those who still cling to the perception that the perpetrators do practice science although wrongly.

To reiterate, this scheme has nothing to do with science. It is the art of the manufactured lie. And you're hooked into it by believing and hoping 'if they would only turn back to science/the truth/admit their errors. Stop it!

They have made no such error. Sure, there have been mistakes but not as you think. Their error is they have lost the chance to hoodwink all the people.

(Perhaps their greatest error was to think they could. Yet why wouldn't they, have you looked at society lately? How wayward must we get.)

However, the single greatest error is of those who have thought the perps have simply strayed, therefore let us show them their error. Again, they have made no such error. 

It is the bonehead who thinks good fruit can be gotten from the corrupt tree. Worse, such thinking marks one as a cultural illiterate patsy.


God Bless you Rick.

Nailed it.

This is Orwell writ large. The perversion of language and marking of the 'intellectual battlespace', kills us every time - you get sucked into a non-sensical debate about the effectiveness of a mitigation strategy instead of arguing that the atrategy isn't needed in the first place!

That's right, argue about masks in public, not whether they're needed at all.

Argue about 'the current definition of vaccinated' instead of the disturbing fact that they do not work as a 'vaccine' in the first place (see how they did that there?).. the jab isn't a vaccine, its mRNA gene therapy adopted from cancer treatments, but you use their word when arguing about it don't you? Guess who's NOT going to win that debate?

Robert E. Lee monument, other Confederate statues could go to Richmond’s Black History Museum under deal

 Via Billy 

Despicable as the Lee family continues to run scared.

 City and state officials have reached an agreement to transfer ownership of the statue and pedestal of Gen. Robert E. Lee to the Black History Museum and Cultural Center of Virginia, which has also agreed to take possession of all the other Confederate memorials removed from Richmond since last year.

Under this arrangement, Richmond’s Black History Museum would work in partnership with the Valentine museum — which has chronicled the city’s history for more than a century — and local community members to determine the fates of the stone and bronze symbols of the Confederacy.

Southern Patriotism and Foreign Military Interventions


Is it un-patriotic for Southerners to question American military intervention? This is a perplexing question for those raised during the Cold War. For us, it was a battle to defeat atheistic communism—an evil power attempting to force its will upon the world. We were raised and educated by the World War II generation for whom patriotism was intricately linked to America’s military power. “America! Love it or leave it,” was our motto. But is Cold War “patriotism” appropriate today?

I Submit For Your Consideration

Joe Martin's Ghost

We now come to the close of the second year of what I like to call "The Great Pandemonium." (TGP) A year marked particularly by irrational behavior brought about by irrational and, more often than not, contradictory public policy as a reaction to, again what I like to call the "Sino-Lung-Rot." (SLR)

But there's this question that is increasing nagging me. As the "Social-Fascists" (Stalin's term not mine) ramp up their hate campaign against the unvaccinated it's rational becomes less tenable by the day. (Seriously legislation was proposed in New York to confine the unvaccinated to camps.) 

Consider the following.

1. After two years the unvaccinated are just that unvaccinated and to this point for all intents and purposes healthy. They can be broken down as follows.

(a) The infected and recovered with natural immunity. (b) The "New Hermit Class"(NHC) that cowers in their basement and have everything delivered. (c) Those who were never susceptible to the SLR in the first place.

2. Even the CDC and the "poisonous dwarf" (Hitler's staff's unspoken nickname for Dr. Goebbels) Fauci admit that the vaccines don't prevent either infection or retransmission of the virus. In spite of this painful exercise in cognitive dissonance we are told "but they are milder infections". Excuse me but isn't the survival rate for those under 80 something like 99.93% And the younger you are the higher the survival rate.

3. Increasing the numbers of active cases of the newest attenuation of the virus in many areas contain more vaccinated than unvaccinated.

I can only conclude then with questions. Why then should the unvaccinated be considered as some lurking, "Typhoid Mary" like repository of pestilence and death? Isn't the vaccinated that are the victims here? Especially given that they remain just as suspectable to infection and unwitting vectors of spreading the infection to others? Isn't that the definition of what the infamous Typhoid Mary was?

Science has never been advanced by a one size fits all, not decent or contrary opinion allowed approach, never. Scientific progress only comes through open, honest debate and most importantly experimentation that explores alternative possible explanation and solutions to problems. The likes of Fauci and the leftist medical and political mafia are no different than the Papacy that "cancelled" and imprisoned the likes of Galileo and Tycho because their theories (based on actual observation and rigorous calculation) exposed the fallacy of the Aristotelian universe.

Unless and until we reject the idea that the scientific and medical universe revolves around the so-called experts like Fauci et al there are dark days ahead.

School Board Unanimously Approves Plan to Pay Non-White Teachers More

If you feel like you live in an alternative universe where reductionism replaces logic and superficiality trumps character, here’s more evidence that you may be right. We might just be living in a racist version of The Twilight Zone.

The Mankato School Board in Minnesota voted unanimously to pay non-white teachers “additional stipends” based only on the color of their skin, according to BizPac Review. If you happen to be born black or Native American and teach for the school district, you ostensibly deserve to be paid more than your peers.

Biden Admin Sparks Uproar with Plan to Rip Emergency Aid from Rural Areas, Funnel Toward Cities

Rural areas are about to be hit by a Biden administration policy that puts the wants of major cities over the needs of small towns.

Rental assistance that was part of the coronavirus aid package has been spent in an uneven fashion, according to Politico. The Biden administration is planning to take what has not been spent — about half of the $46.5 billion allocated — and give it to areas that have spent the most money, which effectively means major cities.

Wyoming, Montana and the Dakotas are among the states that are expected to be hard hit.
