Man, that’s a damn odd side effect, doc. – Watch out for that Moderna vaccine, folks. Turns out it does weird stuff to your eyes, according to Dr. Qanta Ahmed, who appeared on Fox & Friends Saturday morning:
Ok, that’s a joke. Everyone get it? Don’t send me any nasty emails like some of you did in response to that bit of satire I posted about Nakatomi Plaza on Christmas eve. Thanks.
I’m just waiting for the FBI to tell me what happened so I can know for certain sure what didn’t happen. – That’s honestly how I feel about the FBI “investigation” into the bombing in Nashville that took place on Christmas morning. Whatever the FBI tells us, we can be pretty much 100% certain that it is not correct. Whether it’s just out of gross incompetence or outright lying, we can all rest assured that the FBI under Christopher Wray will put out a narrative about the bombing that will be false. Because that’s what the FBI does in the 21st Century – it is the Bureau’s true core competency.
Nashville PD sent out this tweet late Friday Night identifying what they believe is the vehicle that exploded:
BREAKING: This is the RV that exploded on 2nd Ave N this morning. It arrived on 2nd Ave at 1:22 a.m. Have you seen this vehicle in our area or do you have information about it?

It looks like about a 30-year-old RV, which means this could all be the plot of some network TV show gone terribly wrong. [Seriously, you can always predict which car on a network TV show is going to be wrecked, run off of a bridge or exploded simply because it is always the only car shown on that particular episode that is more than 15 years-old. The networks do not blow up or wreck brand new automobiles because they’re too expensive. However, they do wreck or blow up brand new cars on cable or Netflix. It’s a rule or something.]
Ok, no, obviously this is a serious deal and it’s just a damn shame our country no longer possesses a serious and competent federal law enforcement agency to investigate what was clearly a terrorist attack of some sort anymore. What we will get instead is some narrative written on the 7th floor of the J. Edgar Hoover Building and fed to the hundreds of FBI/Intel Community plants that work in all of the national media outlets once the agency figures out that this attack on one of America’s great cities was committed by some clown or group of clowns that they’ve had under surveillance for several years and did nothing about.
Because that’s what always happens with attacks like this and the FBI-led “investigations” that follow. It’s all butt-covering all the time at your FBI.
This is the only time anyone in congress pays attention to a presidential budget request. – Democans and Republicrats in congress are out in the corrupt news media claiming – as NY Cong. Peter King did yesterday – that all of the pork requests contained in their $2.4 trillion looting of the U.S. treasury were contained in the presidential budget request.
Yes, friends, that would be the same presidential budget request that basically every member of congress declared to be “dead on arrival” when it was issued back in February or March. But that was then and this is now, and now they want to pretend that a $2.4 trillion package that contains less than $350 billion in actual COVID relief funding is an emergency for the constituents back home, constituents who these very same members of congress helped to put out of work.
San Fran Nan and Chuck Schumer are out there pretending to be trying to accommodate the President’s demand to beef up the amount of one-time payments to certain Americans from $600 to $2000 by proposing legislation that would do only that. They of course ignore President Trump’s demand that all the billions in wasteful spending be cut out of the legislation at the same time.
Because, let’s face it: Pork spending is how members of congress buy favors from foreign governments and domestic corporations. That $150 million that congress approved to spend on “gender studies” in Burma is in that bill because some member or members of congress want to bribe the Burmese government in exchange for some future favor, such as the ability to buy in to some sweet real estate or other business deal at a bargain basement price. That’s why that money is in that bill, not for any altruist reason.
This is how members of congress whose only visible means of making a living is the ~$175,000 annual salary the receive manage to become fabulously wealthy after just a few years in public “service.” It’s how Dianne Feinstein and her husband have managed to become worth upwards of a billion dollars. It’s how San Fran Nan can afford that palatial, walled-un San Francisco estate, and $30k worth of refrigerators. It’s how Harry Reid, who was near-dead-broke when first elected to congress, retired as a hundred millionaire.
Pork spending, and the favors it buys at taxpayer expense, is what makes serving in congress worth doing for most of the people who ended up getting elected to one of those 535 seats.
President Trump doubled down yesterday on his demands to beef up the COVID payments and cut the pork. Anyone who believes congress is going to give up that pork spending doesn’t understand why these people ran for those jobs in the first place. The Democans and Republicrats will gladly just keep trying to shunt blame off onto the current President for the next 25 days and then pass the same set of bills all over again when the next president is installed on January 20.
Because, if that next President is China Joe Potato Head Biden, they know without any doubt at all that those bills will be signed, albeit with a gentleman’s agreement on the understanding that the “Big Guy” gets a cut of the future kickbacks.
That is all.
