GOP Congresswoman Lauren Boebert is Trash

Yup I said it.  Her behavior at the performance of Beetlejuice was white trash.

First some background Lauren Boebert is a Republican Congress woman from Colorado.  She is very conservative, probably one of the most far right in Congress.  She is famous for being very attractive and she carries a gun.  She used to own a business where the wait staff openly carried as well, the business closed.  She is very outspoken about trans/LBGTQ and other issues.  The left views her as the anti-Christ.  She is a second term congress member, who barely won a second term in a very red district.  I predict she will be beaten in the primary or lose in the general this go round.

Check out her behavior a week ago at said Beetlejuice performance.

Michael Keaton–from the movie Beetlejuice

Two sources also confirmed to 9News that Boebert was vaping, a prohibited action that ushers attempted to address with her several times.

A pregnant woman reportedly confronted Boebert and asked the congresswoman to stop vaping, the New York Post reported. But Boebert refused.

Lauren Boebert says she ‘fell short of values’ after Beetlejuice groping video

I don’t give a crap about vaping, it’s not smart but if a pregnant women (or man, I’m based in CA so can’t assume gender) asks you to stop, stop.  But it gets far worse for Boebert.

The CCTV video also shows Boebert’s guest fondling her breasts after they had taken their seats. Boebert is also seen petting her guest’s crotch in the venue.

Wow.  I saw the video and it is that bad.  Looks like high school first gf/bf behavior.  He (her date, Boebert is freshly divorced) had his hand literally in a full cup over her breast.  If you didn’t see the video imagine her dates hand replacing her bra, it’s that bad, in public at a theatre no less.  As far as her grabbing his crotch, yep that looks bad too, almost appears she is trying to jerk him off.

Boebert and her date were later removed by security in the second act of the musical as their disruptive behavior continued.

The CCTV footage shows a blurred-out gesture that Boebert flashed at theater security as she was escorted out. Business Insider reported that the gesture appeared to be a middle finger.

Wow, the middle finger to security ejecting you after your “behavior” yikes.  But it gets even better, trust me.

According to a report of the confrontation from theater security, Boebert and her guest became argumentative with officials. “Do you know who I am?” the congresswoman allegedly asked, according to the theater security report.

“Do you know who I am” is classic mean girl/boy behavior.  She is exactly what is wrong with our country.  The rules don’t apply to her.  She, like most, thinks she is way more important than she is.  She should be setting a good example, instead yikes.  So, I guess she thinks having lewd behavior in public and vaping is ok?  Wild move.

Oh, it gets even better.

She is one of the most far-right representatives in Congress, widely known for bigoted statements she has made against LGBTQ+ people, Muslims and other marginalized communities.

A report from the Advocate, the LGBTQ+ news outlet, noted that the man who accompanied her to Beetlejuice was a Democrat named Quinn Gallagher who is the proprietor of a bar that has hosted LGBTQ+ events and drag performances, which have often been targets of the political right.

Yup she was out on a date with an owner of a bar who espouses the things she claims to be against.  While I don’t hate her for that it’s a bad look, optics aren’t great. 

Boebert apologized for her behavior in a Friday evening statement.

“The past few days have been difficult and humbling, and I’m truly sorry for the unwanted attention my Sunday evening in Denver has brought to the community,” Boebert, as reported by the Colorado Sun.

Boebert added that her “public and difficult divorce” has created a “challenging personal time for me and my entire family”.

“I’ve tried to handle it with strength and grace as best I can, but I simply fell short of my values on Sunday,” Boebert said.

In May, Boebert filed for divorce from her husband, Jayson, after a long marriage.

Falling short on her values in the understatement of the century.  Her divorce got to her, but her true colors came out.  Boebert should know better she is essentially public enemy number 1 of the left and the media.  When you are wanted like her you have to stay out of the limelight.

Parody site Babylon Bee hit her with: Lauren Boebert Attempts To Smooth Things Over With New Line Of Purity Rings

Here is a little bit of life advice folks.  Fellas if your girlfriend/wife is playing with your crotch in a public setting, aka anywhere outside of your home/bedroom, she is no prize.  Ladies, if your husband/boyfriend puts his hand over your breasts in public he is no prize.  This is white trash behavior out of both of them.  No one wants to see this type of behavior in public.  Honestly if you and your date are this horned up, get a hotel or find a bedroom and do the dirty, its gross.

I truly hope Boebert is able to get her life under control, the video and her actions that night make it appear she was under the influence of quite a bit of alcohol and/or drugs.  She blames her divorce, but folks a divorce does not give you the right to act the fool in public.  Frankly if I can be honest, the only thing missing from her escapades that night was her pulling her dates pants down and giving him a BJ right there in the theatre.

In closing Boebert did say she “fell short of her values” that might be the understatement of the century.

The Drunken Jedi Sentenced

Jorge Riley aka the “Drunken Jedi” was sentenced by Judge Amit Mehta to 18 months in prison for his role in the “Insurrection” on January 6th.  I use air quotes on insurrection because I do not think the Democrats, liberal Republicans or media types actually know the true definition of insurrection. 

As far as Riley’s sentence, color me shocked.  I was thinking 5-6 years in prison to be honest.  Mostly because Jorge filmed a lot of his antics, bragged about it online, and put things all over social media.  As far as I know, he is the only person arrested for his behavior on Jan 6th that claimed to be armed. Riley got one hell of a lifeline from this judge.  Judge Mehta is also hostile towards Donald Trump and his supporters, again I’m shocked Riley is getting only 18 months.

This may seem overtly mean and come off as sour grapes but sentences like this will never change a person.  I see a lot of my sister in Jorge.  They are one in the same; they never learn a lesson, so they don’t change their behavior.  Jorge quite literally had a backpack filled with vodka he sipped from a siphon at GOP meetings and conventions.  I cannot tell you how many times I was treated to the saying “Jesus loves you” at early morning hours at conventions with the stench of booze on his breath.  Many friends of mine who were officers at the functions allowed his behavior to continue.  He is paying for it now. 

The reality of the situation is Jorge never was a guy who made get out the vote calls, knocked on doors or did much to help the party at all.  I will never understand how he always got a pass from leadership.  Even more, they gave him a lifetime achievement award after he was released from jail.  The irony of that group.

Riley got a gift from the judge, compare the sentences of the leader of the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers.  They got decades in prison.  If I were Jorge, I would change my life.  I do not know how old Riley is but the book isn’t closed on his life, it’s just a series of bad chapters so far.  I know drugs/alcohol are prevalent in our prison system, I think it would be wise for Jorge to give up those vices.  I was always told he drank/drugged due to his PTSD from serving in the military, but during one of his hearings he admitted to having never left the USA.  So, what is causing this PTSD?  He obviously didn’t serve over seas.

In closing I will say this, I do not support the actions on January 6th, not one bit.  But it all could have been avoided.  Folks if you live in the Midwest or East Coast, you didn’t see what the blog staff here did.  In every single contested state, Biden would get out to a large lead, and eventually the result would be a Trump win by a couple.  Well around 11:00pm they announced that Detroit, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, and other large cities would quit counting until morning.  Oh, the rural areas would keep counting, just not big cities.  When morning came suddenly Trump would be trailing by about 45,000 votes in each of those states, so basically the opposite effect happened.  Maybe Trump did lose fair and square, but let’s be honest; the optics don’t look great there.  It appears some sort of fraud likely occurred.  Again, if the counting continued, I would say he lost legitimately.

However, it does not excuse the behavior of January 6th.

Fox News Finally Backs Our Prediction about Newsom for President 2024

Yep. After saying it for the better part of two years, Fox News is saying that Newsom is the likely Democrat to replace Biden. No kidding!

Biden already faces competition from Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Marianne Williamson for that nomination, but polling shows that Democrat voters are not enthusiastic about them.

Instead, a well-known candidate with broad appeal to the Democrat base would need to step up.

The most likely candidate is California Gov. Gavin Newsom

Democrats have pathways to replace Biden in 2024, but they are narrowing

They’re Coming for You Barbara: Warning to Idaho Edition

Any societal decay or advancement by Liberals—which is the same thing—is always followed by something even more insidious. Not satisfied that Gavin Newsom has turned all of California into San Francisco, Democrats in the once “Golden State” are advancing a bill that will allow them to use taxpayer money to turn your state into California too.

California may soon lift a ban on state-funded travel to states with anti-LGBTQ+ laws and instead focus on an advertising campaign to bring anti-discrimination messages to red states.

California started banning official travel to states with laws it deemed discriminatory against LGBTQ+ people in 2017, starting with Kansas, Mississippi, North Carolina and Tennessee. Since then, the list has grown to include a total of 26 states, most of them Republican-led, following a surge of anti-LGBTQ+ legislation these past few years.

California lawmakers vote to end travel ban to states with anti-LGBTQ+ laws

Please note citizens of Texas, Oklahoma, Idaho, and other states covered by the current travel ban ( they are up to 26 states that Californians are prohibited from visiting) that instead the State of California will be spending money in your state to try to convince you and especially your children that being homosexual or transsexual is virtuous and something you should do. This is a direct attack on Christianity, families, and Western Values. Oh, this will also be accompanied by lots of political endorsements and campaign contributions to see that this happens. This is becoming a coordinated, Democrat counteroffensive to destroy strongholds of conservatism.

Just so you know, Michigan has also committed taxpayer money for similar reasons. Both states are also heavily promoting abortion thru all nine months of pregnancy as a social good and a women’s rite.

A benefit of California doing this is to help pave the way for Gavin Newsom to be the next President. After all, how can Gavin campaign in a state where travel has been banned by his own administration? Again, I say he will find his way onto the Presidential ballot in 2024.

Please don’t underestimate the amount of money that can be brought to bear on your state. For less than the cost of a contested California congressional race, they could saturate every media market and college in your small conservative state for months on end.

Bottom line: if you think you can just sit on your hands and do nothing because your region/city/county/state is conservative, you will lose what you think you have. Chances are it’s already being eroded and taken from you; you just haven’t seen it yet. Wake-up!

CA Doesn’t Give a F*** about Crime Anymore

The title of this blog says it all. 

A family member of mine passed on a Fox News article saying CA is trying to change a law so if you are doing life without parole you can petition to be re-sentenced.  Yup. 

A bill that would allow killers serving a life sentence without parole to possibly be re-sentenced cleared a major hurdle Friday in California’s Democratic-led state Legislature

The state Assembly Appropriations Committee advanced Senate Bill 94, which now moves to the next phase of voting. The bill would allow California prison inmates serving a sentence of life without parole (LWOP) for certain crimes to petition for re-sentencing if the offense occurred before June 5, 1990, and the completion of at least 25 years of their sentence. 

Those convicted of first-degree murder of a police officer would be exempt. Those who are re-sentenced would have the opportunity to someday go in front of a parole board, which could deny them release. 

In a social media post, state Sen. Dave Cortese, a Democrat who introduced the bill, simply said he was “thrilled that these key bills of mine passed the Assembly Appropriations Committee.”

California Dem-led committee advances bill to let killers serving life without parole request re-sentencing

The State Senator is “thrilled” folks.

The CA GOP had a couple quotes in the article but let’s face it, they are complicit.  They care more about being re-elected than actually doing anything to stop these things.

If they cared, they would have pushed a referendum to repeal prop 47 aka the “shoplift all you want” law.  The prop passed with 59% of the vote, the dirty little secret is I’d bet quite a few Republicans and Independents voted in favor.  This is the America they want.  Crimes that used to be felonies became misdemeanors; misdemeanors became not chargeable. 

Look at the results.

The manager of the CVS near my house told me they get taken for about $2,500 each weekend.  Keep in mind I live in a rural part of town, so the store being hit for that much that often is telling about how much is happening in more populated areas.  The CVS north of me has the liquor locked up, along with other likely highly shoplifted items like razors, and Tide Pods.  The Home Depot near my house? Quite a few items are kept under bars and padlocks.  Yes, it’s like a third world country.  On KCRA 3 news app, there is a story almost weekly of a “flash mob” going to a store and looting it.  It’s not just bad parts of town, it’s happening all over.  Oakland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Sacramento, Jackson, Roseville, and Monterey.  It’s all over.  No store is immune or exempt, Target and Dick’s Sporting Goods are just the 2 most recent to share that millions in inventory are walking out the front door unpaid for.

The dirty little secret?  Even if we started caring about crime and criminalizing it again, we can’t.  You may have missed it, but Gavin Newsom and Democrats in the legislature here have shut down Deuel Vocational institute in Tracy and CA Correction Center in Lassen County.  There is another prison in Riverside closing in 2025, and I believe we shut down a women’s prison, and are exiting the last privately run prison in 2024.  I believe we also have shut down all juvenile facilities and if you commit murder prior to the age of 18 you get out of prison at 25.  I believe there are plans to shut an additional 5 prisons at some point in the future as well.

You see folks during the “plandemic,” aka Covid, you were so scared of catching the flu that you sat by while CA went full libtard.  You allowed prisons and jails to release people “who were at risk of dying from Covid.”  Sentences were reduced, in some cases jail time didn’t even apply any longer.  In my home county of Sacramento, a DUI causing death offender was sentenced to probation, no jail time.  The Attorney General and local District Attorneys allowed rioting and looting during George Floyd protests to go unscathed.  Crimes are no longer prosecuted, worse yet stores are told not to try to stop shoplifters. 

The bottom line, if you don’t charge folks with a crime, and those who you do charge aren’t sentenced to jail time, or you release folks early, let’s face it, you do not need prisons.  The CA Democrats are doing exactly what they wanted.  They scared you into thinking Covid would kill everyone, and we had to be compassionate.  The only ones now not being shown compassion are the “January 6th rioters.”  They are getting/doing years of hard time; some just for using the restroom and then exiting the Capitol.

My Thoughts on GOP Presidential Debate # 1

My thoughts?  I did not watch it.

Yep, that’s right.  I decided just like the Blog Father that no one up on that stage is able to beat Trump.  DeSantis likely could have had a chance but for some reason he went cuckoo.  If I were him, not knowing if Florida has term limits, do another term as governor and run again in 4 years.  I say 4 years because it will likely be an open seat for President, either Biden or Trump will be terming out.  Run again and keep governing Florida as a conservative.  The only real thing that’s an issue in Florida right now is the insurance business and Johnnie Does can blog that one.

Reality is DeSantis is trying to “out Trump” Trump and that will never work.  Trump is a candidate who brands himself as being the “common man” and in more cases than not, he speaks directly for the folks who hate the PC/cancel culture we have today.  DeSantis while he tries his best, comes off as a cheap knock off.  Why drink a Miller Light when you can have a Miller Genuine Draft? 

The others?  Well, I will run through them quickly.

Nikki Haley, she is a former governor, but she worked for Trump as UN Ambassador for 2 years, that makes it hard for her to attack him.  Good story, but it won’t pop.

Tim Scott, I wish he would lean into him being a black Republican. Its odd but I have rarely seen any black Republican do this.  Toast.

Asa Hutchinson and Doug Burgram?  Governors of Ar-Kansas and North Dakota.  No one cares about either of you since quite literally no one lives there.  Weird point of note, the owner of the Oakland Athletics Baseball Team is a mega donor to the North Dakota guy.  Odd because North Dakota is the exact opposite of Oakland, but I digress.

Chris Christie?  I heard they had to roll him onto the stage and roll him off afterwards.  He should be next on my 400 lb. life.  Dude needs help, and he attacks Trump ruthlessly.  He went after Trump so hard he is likely running in the wrong primary.  He should be angling to be a VP with Gavin.

Vivek Ramaswamy, he is an interesting dude.  A millennial, and basically a libertarian.  He has some whacky beliefs (wanting to legalize psychedelics being one, he also wants to unseal the 9/11 docs about who the hijackers really were).  But more strangely he has taken Soros money (Soros kid political money) he went to private school and to Harvard.  I just don’t know where to place him, but he is an interesting guy.  He might make a good VP; he seems to have some attack dog in him from what I read.

Who cares about anyone else running.

I do care about Trump.  I think he made a slight mistake going on Tucker Carlson for an interview posted on X (formerly known as Twitter).  12.8 million watched the GOP debate,228 million watched the Tucker/Trump interview.  For Tucker many of those may not have been live, they watched later.

He made a mistake for this reason, the debate was televised on Fox News only, I think Trump missed a gigantic opportunity to draw even more viewers.  I would have held a rally, maybe in Iowa, or some other fly over state.  I would have done this as the media would have gone bonkers.  The viewership would have dwarfed 228 million, trust me.  Trump is a bakery; he puts buns all over the place.  I would have invited all interested media; Fox would have shown up too and aired it later.  A chance missed.

Oh well.

To those in the GOP debates, good luck when the donor money dries up; you will die on the vine.

Thoughts on President Newsom and the Undermining of Conservatives by Fox News

I still think Gavin finds his way onto the 2024 ballot, but maybe not in the way people normally do it. I had thought that he would run against Joe Biden and force him out of the race in much the same way as Jerry Brown did to Newsom during his aborted first run for California Governor. However, I am rethinking that idea.

I think Gavin will wait until the Democrat Convention to get on the ticket. Will he be the new choice for Vice President, or will he be drafted to replace “the Big Guy”? This gambit is likely already in the works amongst the Elites. Democrats leave nothing up to the electorate except the symbolism of casting a predetermined vote. Having Nancy Pelosi as your Auntie helps a lot in that Party. I fully expect to see Gavin in the White House if the Democrats win in 2024.

In a separate but related prediction, if the race is Biden v Trump, the 2024 winner will resign shortly after the 2026 midterm elections. Both will be “lame ducks” and be pretty long in the tooth. Resigning just after the two-year mark will allow their respective Vice Presidents to be in office for up to ten years—if they play their cards right.

Folks the upcoming 2024 Presidential election will be a big deal: especially, for the Republicans. If they don’t fix the election laws, they will find themselves in demographic oblivion even without further Democrat election night shenanigans.

Fox News Betrayal

Oh, and speaking of shenanigans, is there any doubt that Fox News has pledged their allegiance to Ron DeSantis? Trump is persona non grata on the network unless they can amplify the phony lawsuits or hit him with January 6th and accuse him of lying about the 2020 election being stolen. Trump has been cancelled by this so-called bastion of Conservatism.

Fox holds a debate for the second-tier candidates and then declares DeSantis the winner, how shocking. Next, they will claim Trump’s numbers are going down and Ron has a real shot. Look for George W Bush or Mitt Romney (or some other RINO) to start shilling for DeSantis in the name of Party unity. Once DeSantis has the “Never Trumpers” in his corner, then they will talk about his inevitability—long before any votes are cast. Meanwhile, wanna bet Sean Hannity boards the DeSantis Express after the next debate in September?

Fox News doesn’t give a crap about Conservatives except to the extent that they can make money off of them. Fox is for sale to the highest bidder. When they think nobody notices they push the false Covid narrative of the Establishment—in exchange for money from the government, they promote transgenderism, and other BS. Heck, the other day they were even running ads for Joe Biden because he will reinstate Roe—i.e. abortion for all nine months of the pregnancy. Here’s a screen grab of the ad.

The text reads, ” Get real, Jack. I’m bringing Roe back.”

So Joe thinks he’s Homelander? Scary.

Joe Biden doing his best Homelander impression.
Homelander from Amazon’s “The Boys”

Others on our editorial staff had the same ad on their cell phones too.

I have said before that given enough time, Fox News will end up being like CNN. Its happening before your eyes. Wake up people.

Democrat’s Plan to Reclaim Idaho

Yep, it’s that blatant and that bad. If you took the worst election ideas from California—i.e., the jungle primary—and added the worst election idea from Alaska—ranked voting—and some outside money and boost the whole thing on steroids then you’d end up with the smelly mess of dog poop being put forward by a Democrat shell group called “Reclaim Idaho”.  

Reclaim Idaho is actively collecting signatures for a ballot initiative that they wish to qualify. In neighboring Bonner County, the group is calling themselves, “Idaho Coalition for Open Primaries”.

Here is the first bullet point from the Reclaim Idaho website.

The initiative will end Idaho’s closed Republican primary and create a non-partisan primary system, open to all voters regardless of party affiliation. The top four candidates will advance to the general election.

Reclaim Idaho

The problem is that the Republicans in Idaho are too conservative, and the Dems don’t have the numbers to win in November so the only way they have a chance is to get a different outcome in the election. What is the purpose of the top four going to November except to divide the Republican voters and let more Democrats win. It’s simple math. In a top four, if two or three Republicans are on the ballot in November and only one Democrat then the likely winner in almost all cases will be the Democrat.

Jungle Primaries nullify a two-party system. If you want to know what killed California politics, it was the adoption of the top two vote getters go to the General Election. Republican candidates only appear on ballots in a handful of districts anywhere in the state. They have less than 1/3 of the Legislative seats and zero of the statewide offices. Having a top four system in Idaho will result in the same thing, one party rule and not by the GOP. Oh, California’s top two was funded by two billionaires: a RINO Republican and a Democrat.

Just to seal the deal, the top four will then be subjected to a ranked voting system. Ask Joe Miller how well ranked voting has worked in Alaska.

“Ranked-choice voting was sold as the way to make elections better reflect the will of the people,” Palin said in a statement. “As Alaska — and America — now sees, the exact opposite is true.”

Sarah Palin

Palin argues the voting system effectively disenfranchised 60% of Alaska voters

Sarah Palin condemns ranked choice voting system following election

Compare Alaska’s system to the one proposed for Idaho.

Bullet Points two and three from Reclaim Idaho

In the general election, voters will have the freedom to pick their top candidate and also to rank additional candidates in order of preference.

To make sure the winner enjoys support from a broad coalition of voters and not just a narrow faction, there will be Instant Runoff Voting in the general election (also called “ranked choice voting”). Here’s how it works: The last-place candidate will be eliminated and each vote for that candidate will be transferred to the voter’s second choice. This process repeats until only two candidates remain, and the candidate with the most votes is declared the winner.

Reclaim Idaho

Oh, this idea was on the ballot in Nevada and adopted in 2022

Set to appear on the ballot for the upcoming midterm elections, the initiative — if successfully passed — would amend the constitution of Nevada by implementing a ranked-choice voting system for both state and federal primary and general elections, in which primaries “would be opened up to all voters regardless of political party.” Under such a system, voters would rank their top five preferred primary candidates, with the top five overall vote-getters advancing to the general contest.

In the general election, if a candidate fails to garner “an outright majority (more than 50 percent),” the candidate who has the “fewest first-preference votes would be eliminated, with their ‘votes’ redistributed based on the second preference of those individual ballots.” Such a process “would continue until the final two candidates, or when one candidate reached a majority.”

Ranked Choice voting is a nightmare and its on the ballot in Nevada

Ranked Choice is so bad even some Democrats have rejected it.

According to The Washington Informer, party leaders expressed concern that the implementation of RCV would kneecap voters’ ability to choose their preferred nominee in any given election and result in potential voter disenfranchisement. “We firmly believe that every voter, regardless of party affiliation or independent status, should have the right to freely choose their preferred candidate,” the party’s statement continues.

Ranked Choice voting is so bad for elections even DC Democrats are rejecting it

So there you have it, Democrats are on the record that Ranked Choice Voting—a.k.a rigged choice voting—results in disenfranchisement and kneecapping voters.

Please note that Ranked Choice Voting doesn’t appear in Democrat states, only those that the Democrats wish to flip to their column.

NATO Chief of Staff says the Quiet Part Out Loud

The Ukraine-Russia war/conflict/invasion/special operation, choose your description, it sucks.  Innocent folks are being killed, towns being leveled, young people being conscripted/sent forcibly into battle.  It’s not a fun thing to write about.  We here at the blog have an opinion of this war that will anger most who support Ukraine, specifically NATO and the EU continuing to send out supplies, equipment and cash.

Check out this dudelet (RIP Rush Limbaugh…. this was his term to describe news) from the NATO chief of Staff

“I think that a solution could be for Ukraine to give up territory and get NATO membership in return”

The above statement was made by Stian Jenssen.  He almost immediately was rebuked by Ukraine leadership and walked back his statement.  The reality is he was telling the truth about the war, and neither Ukraine, nor pro-Ukraine people worldwide wanted to hear that.

He said the quiet part out loud.  The Chief of Staff, just like most high level NATO employees and outside influencers, know this to be true.  Ukraine cannot win this war.  Russia has millions of bodies to throw into the fire, they can afford to lose many more troops than Ukraine can.  They are emptying jails, likely rounding up homeless, and drafting young men in the rural areas to fight this war.  Ukraine doesn’t have that ability.  Ukraine is 100% reliant on NATO weaponry, problem is as advanced as our weapons are, they need bodies to operate them, bodies that are piling up daily.

The reality is even if Ukraine came to the table to discuss this with Russia it will not work.  Russia views Ukraine as territory stolen from them when the USSR was broken up.  Russia really doesn’t have much room for expansion, sure they could take Georgia (the country not the state) they took some territory already, they also occupy an area “Transnistria” that is between Ukraine and Moldova.  However, neither of those countries are large enough.  Ukraine is the prize.

The meat grinder in this war is rough, Russia is quite literally throwing bodies at Ukraine front lines to expose positions.  As Ukrainians cheer the dead Russians, they got killed by rocket/missile launches later.  It’s a war of attrition and Russia has far more bodies.  Think of it like a real-life game of Risk: The Game of World Domination.  I have one country; you have the neighboring one.  While you may win a round or two, in the end I win as I have more armies, and more chances to weaken your force.  The only reason this thing is not a total blowout in Russia’s favor is NATO is gifting Ukraine all of our outdated equipment.  Even with that support, Ukraine is hardly moving the needle in their so called offensive.

This war is lost, it’s a black hole and we are throwing endless gobs of money and equipment at it.  Hey, isn’t that the USA doctrine lately?  Throw lots of money at something… have the elected’s/powerful/influencers cash in on the grift, double and in some cases triple down and eventually pull out?

The Chief of Staff of NATO said the part we didn’t want to hear or believe, now we know it’s a matter of time before the rank-and-file NATO countries stop giving equipment and money. 

That being said, I see a “stale mate” similar to the Korean War happening here.  No side declares victory, but we have in essence disputed territory, a large, demilitarized zone, and warning from governments to avoid/don’t travel to the area.

Sorry if I didn’t tell you what you wanted to hear regarding Ukraine, but I think it’s over.

Hurricane Hilary Increases GOP Membership

Yep. There may be such a thing as coincidence but … whether related to the afore mentioned storm, I will let you decide.

Yesterday, I took the wife to the County Clerk’s Office, and we registered to vote. A recent law went into effect in Idaho that prohibits anyone from registering to vote unless the registration address matches a person’s address on their driver’s license. Apparently, this verification must be done by the Clerk. Neither the Democrats nor Republicans were accepting voter registration cards at the County Fair that we attended about a week ago.

Also, we learned that Republicans in Idaho have abolished their Presidential Primary.

Last, I had heard, Republicans were floating the idea that nobody registered as a Republican less than two years could vote in the upcoming Primary. Apparently, that idea was scrapped in favor of an in-person Caucus on March 2, 2024.

If you recall, in 2020, Democrats ripped a page from the Rush Limbaugh playbook and ran their own “Operation Chaos” in the Republican Primaries of several states. They elected Trump supporting candidates that were never supported in the General Election by either Trump or the GOP. In essence, these guys were abandoned, and the seats ceded to the Democrats. Virtually all lost in the November Election. In my opinion, it was shameful that they were sacrificed without any support. In a rational world, this failure should be grounds for not supporting Trump—as would the Covid disaster—but the Democrats have made Trump the GOP frontrunner for 2024; something they will rue if he prevails.

Anyway, Idaho Republicans seemed fearful of Democrats changing registration to select their primary candidates and then reregistering as Dems for the General Election. This was their motivation to push for the two years in the GOP or you can’t vote rule. The Caucus idea was likely a compromise solution. I get a sense that this was one of those divide the conservatives and then get snookered by the RINOs.

Anyway, the wife and I are newly minted members of the GOP for the first time in many years and now look forward to our first caucus.

As for our former state, the so called “republicans” are dumping Life and traditional marriage from their platform.

This is just more proof that people in places like California that think they are conservatives are really Liberals and part of the problem. These are the guys that move to other states and try to make them into California and think they are “Good Republicans” while undermining traditional values. Idaho is free because it rejects California—or more correctly San Francisco—values. Oh, my sister in Texas says the same thing; namely, if you want to turn our state into California go home ‘cause we don’t need you here Quit ruining our state.
