From the article linked below:

The message of intimidation will last longer than the public’s outrage, which is exactly what the Biden administration counted on.

The whole point to the FBI, IRS and DOJ actions over the last few years is INTIMIDATION.  Pure & simple.  A fearful populace is an OBEDIENT populace.

And it is due to get worse as the credit card companies fall in line to start tracking purchases that will weigh against your SOCIAL CREDIT SCORE.  Guns & ammo tracking are just the start.  Soon every purchase made electronically will be added or subtracted from your Social Credit.  And your “Rights” & privileges will go up or down accordingly.

While I don’t believe the GOP will stop, let alone reverse, the damage Democrats have and are doing if they win in November.  I do KNOW that if the Dems somehow hold both Houses thru some “October Surprise” (see: “Reichstag Fire”), they will accelerate their domination through intimidation.

I weep and fear for the future of this country.

    Two considerations and an actionable process:

    * Liberals access abortion services considerably more than conservatives. Borrowing a line from ‘Braveheart’ — “If we can’t get them out, we can breed them out.” Or shall we say the inverse, let them abort themselves to nonexistence.
    * Following bullet one, in order for liberalism to survive thru the generations they need converts. Otherwise the family political mindset takes hold, and Leftism is left in the dust.


    1) Purely on a political basis leave planned parenthood alone. (I leave the moral argument for the reader.)
    2) Do not put your children in public school. The indoctronation begins here.
    3) Assist your children who desire to go to college to at least stay away from places like Oberlein and their ilk. Make sure the degree earns $$ and not some virtue signalling device.

    The way to get low-info people to support the income tax: take the money out of their paycheck all year long. Then give a REFUND to return a small bit when you file taxes.

    How to get low-info people to support climate change taxes: add to the cost of their monthly utility bill all year long. Then give a REFUND to return a small bit once a year.

    This October* your electric bill will include a credit identified as the “California Climate Credit.” Your household and millions of others throughout the state will receive this credit on your utility bills.
    The California Climate Credit is part of California’s efforts to fight climate change. This credit is from a state program that requires power plants, natural gas providers, and other large industries that emit greenhouse gases to buy carbon pollution permits. The credit on your bill is your share of the payments from the State’s program.
    The California Climate Credit is one of many programs resulting from landmark legislation called the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006. Together, these programs are cutting pollution, creating jobs and investing in cleaner energy and transportation.

    A friend came back from a trip to the Right Coast. He said that here in SFO mask wearing was about 50% but in Logan (Boston) 95% of the people are masked. Planes are packed full and he got out of paying $35 for a wheeled carry-on by agreeing to let the airline check that bag.

    A resident of northern Virginia notes that they are becoming … California. The local politicians are all Dems even though the state Gov is Repub.

    Arlington County Police will no longer respond in person to car break ins, including ones that involve property damage and theft. If (when) your car is broken into, there is an online form to be filled out to generate a police report. I spoke to a Sergeant at the ACPD and he told me, in so many words, that they have more important things to do.

    Sen Ben Sasse leaves the US Senate. Maybe Trump can find a Nebraskan to be a candidate.
    The comment about platitudes is a keeper 🙂 🙂

    from Ace:

    “Sasse’s specialty was avoiding confronting Democrats about difficult issues or taking difficult positions. He wasted valuable time in committee not asking probing questions, but instead offering pious but gauzy homilies about vague notions like “citizenship” and “a duty beyond self.” Things no one could really disagree with because they sounded nice and were fundamentally… devoid of actual content.

    To call them platitudinous would be a gross insult to platypuses.

    He made these speeches because his goal from day one of his senatorship has to promote himself to run as a “centrist, moderate” candidate for President, a “different kind of Republican” who can “unite us instead of dividing us.”

    He took second place to no man, including Barack Obama, in a contest of self-regard.

    A major part of establishing his bona fides on that score was to side with Democrats as often as possible, and to avoid taking positions which put him too firmly on the side of his, how do I put this delicately?, his disgusting, gross voters and constituents.

    He’s like David French with 20% less paunch.”

    Sounds … pretty Soviet.

    Canada – Doctors Told To Give Drugs To Or Refer People To Psychotherapy Who Don’t Want COVID Vaccines
    ‘The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario is encouraging doctors to offer drugs or psychotherapy to patients who don’t want the COVID-19 vaccines.

    The updated guidance provided by the college (CPSO) on Wednesday includes a FAQ section, which gives advice for when patients request a medical exemption from the COVID-19 vaccine.

    The answers details how exemptions should be extremely rare. It also suggests patients who don’t want vaccines — or endless boosters — require prescription drugs and psychotherapy.

    The CPSO further issued a veiled threat to doctors who may stray from its orders.

    “Your comments or actions [on social media] can lead to patient/public harm if you are providing an opinion that does not align with information coming from public health or government.”

    Earlier this year, 40 doctors from Ontario were under “investigation” for their COVID-19 related decisions that went outside the province’s orders.‘

    always one of IP’s favorite quotes:

    Winston: “Does Big Brother exist?”

    O’Brien (Party Apparatchik): “Of course he exists. The Party exists.
    Big Brother is the embodiment of the Party.”

    Winston: “Does he exist in the same way as I exist?”

    O’Brien: “You do not exist.”

    Good ol’ former MI Gov Granholm.
    And in the end Biden was rebuffed by OPEC. … llenberger
    In early September, United States Secretary of Energy, Jennifer Granholm, told Reuters that President Joe Biden was considering extending the release of oil from America’s emergency stockpiles, the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR), through October, and thus beyond the date when the program had been set to end. But then, a few hours later, an official with the Department of Energy called Reuters and contradicted Granholm, saying that the White House was not, in fact, considering more SPR releases. Five days later, the White House said it was considering refilling the SPR, thereby proposing to do the exact opposite of what Granholm had proposed.

    The confusion around the Biden administration’s petroleum policy was cleared up yesterday after a senior official revealed that the White House had made a secret offer to buy up to 200 million barrels of OPEC+ oil to replenish the SPR in exchange for OPEC+ not cutting oil production. The official said the White House wanted to reassure OPEC+ that the US “won’t leave them hanging dry.” The fact that this offer was made through the White House, not the Department of Energy, may explain why a representative of the Department called Reuters to take back the remarks of Granholm, who has shown herself to be out-of-the-loop, and at a loss for words, relating to key administration decisions relating to oil and gas production.

    The revelation poses political risks for Democrats who, in the spring of 2020, killed a proposal by President Donald Trump to replenish the SPR with oil from American producers, not OPEC+ ones, and at a price of $24 a barrel, not the $80 a barrel that the Biden White House promised to OPEC+.

    “… Granholm, who has shown herself to be out-of-the-loop,…”

    More to that than one suspects. The entire planet is not Woke, especially the Sauds. Any administration that puts a woman in the DoEng in a world still dominated by a producer culture that still has women living in the 8th century is not reading the tea leaves.

    Bank of England and Bank of Australia already in a soft central bank pivot due to financial instability caused by raising rates.

    There is a new academic paper that posits (that’s come up on bloombergs news a lot lately) that if interest rates are held too low for too long, then r** will fall(a new concept that denotes the rate of interest rates that will cause financial instability.) Essentially r* and r** are usually about at the same level but lately we are seeing this instability number, the latter number, become separated from the former and become much lower.

    This is kind of putting what ppl have been discussing all over the internet into concise terms for the Fed.

    Minsky said “financial stability begets financial instability” or in other words if you keep financial conditions too easy for too long markets become addicted to this excessive leveraged risk taking and associated increased vulnerability when the rates then begin to raise again (R** decoupling from R*.)

    Hence eventually the central banks may have to cry uncle here.

    Update on countries who are backing away from mRNA vaxxing for Covid.

    The section on Oz is perhaps most interesting

    Australia has quietly stopped recommending more Covid vaccines for almost everyone under 50

    Australia’s change is arguably the most striking, because Australian states put extraordinary pressure on their people to submit to Covid vaccinations last fall and winter.

    Mandates for work were only the beginning.

    In November 2021, for example, Victoria – Australia’s second-largest state – decreed that only vaccinated people would be allowed in gyms, bars, restaurants, libraries, and “non-essential” retailers like bookstores and hairdressers. Two months later, the Northern Territory briefly placed unvaccinated people under a “snap lockdown,” confining them to their homes.

    The pressure succeeded.

    24 out of every 25 Australian adults received a primary two-dose Covid vaccination last year, mostly with mRNA shots from Pfizer and Moderna. Australians were also very accepting of boosters, with more than 7 out of 10 adults getting a third shot.

    Yet 2022 has proven disastrous for Australia, both for Covid and public health generally.

    Covid has torn through Australia this year, causing far more deaths than in 2020 or 2021 – and nearly all the deaths are in the vaccinated and boosted. Last week, the state of New South Wales reported only four of 75 deaths occurred in the unvaccinated, while 62 occurred in people who had received at least one booster.

    Worse, overall deaths are up almost 20 percent and hospitals have faced serious strain.
