Or, if your pockets are deep enough, there is a place for you at the influence table just inside the White House doors.
Ella Emhoff, VP Kamala Harris’ step-daughter, gets a high-dollar contract with IMG Models. IMG is owned by Silver Lake Properties. Silver Lake is heavily invested in Twitter. Twitter is a company Republicans want investigated for anti-trust violations. IMG is also invested in Solar Winds, an IT company whose clients were hacked in an attack that went unreported for months. Included in the hacks were the Department of Homeland Security and the Treasury Department.
Gunfreezone believes “The controversy over the ugly chick with hairy armpits who looks like she exists on a diet of lattes and fentanyl is a distraction from the fact that a tech monopoly and a hacked IT security firm just bought themselves protection from the DOJ on the cheap.”
Says the model: “There are a lot of people out there that need a lot of help. If I can do anything to help with that, I want to, and I think this opportunity will be really beneficial toward that.”
Translation, “Yeah, whatever.”

Lily Wilder and her dad Richard were walking their dog along Bendricks Beach in Barry when she saw the footprint embedded in a rock.
They took photos of the find and returned to the site with Lily's mum, Sally, and her baby brother George.
Mrs Wilder said her husband "thought it was too good to be true" and added that she was "put in touch with experts who took it from there."
…87% in the DC office quit.
Yea! Hooray! Huzza!
From The Washington Post:
“The reorganization plan reestablished the bureau’s headquarters in Grand Junction, Colo., moved 328 positions out of Interior’s main D.C. office and left 60 jobs in place.
Then the Post complains: “But several experts, including former high-ranking Interior officials, said the shake-up has deprived the agency of needed expertise and disrupted its operations.”
Of course “several experts” and “former officials” complained. They are part of the swamp. They made careers from advising bureaucrats and dictating to landowners. The Post and other MSM organizations would never look for anyone who agreed with Trump’s decision.
Says Daniel Greenfield in Front Page Mag:
"D.C. expertise on events in the west is worse than worthless. I'm going to bet that BLM can find qualified people in Colorado who actually know something except how to look for the next step on their career ladder in D.C. while leaking to the media."

“Cortavion Tyriques Shemerlee Murphy was 15 years old and behind the wheel of a stolen Dodge Charger traveling about 115 mph when he crashed into a tree, killing himself and four passengers, all minors.
The crash that killed Murphy and his passengers — two 15-year-old boys, Jaquarius Hegler and Marshawn Williams, and two girls, Elexus Hillsman, 16,and Deztanee Cobb, 17 — happened around 12:45 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 2, 2017. Shortly before the crash, the Dodge Charger had blown past a police car in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The cop had at first tried to pursue the Dodge, but gave up, telling the dispatcher: ‘Yeah, I’m going to have to terminate it. It’s well over 100 mph.’ The officer continued traveling east on Main Street at normal speed and, about a mile later, came across the site of the flaming wreckage.”
Facts not in the original 2017 account:
“Cortavion’s mother’s boyfriend was doing repairs on this car that was stolen in Detroit, and which had been brought to him by a known drug dealer. The mother’s boyfriend denied knowing the car was stolen, and also denied giving the teenager permission to drive the car, although the keys were conveniently left in it.” The boyfriend also put tags from another car on the Charger.
If this young woman has any direction on her moral compass…
What am I talking about? She is the sitting VP’s step-daughter and has signed a contract with a big-time modeling agency.

Standing in the foyer of the Community Center on a Naples, Texas, Watermelon Festival Saturday night, Country & Western band playing inside, I saw a man and a woman holding onto each other walk through the double doors from the dance floor just as a man by himself walked in from outside. The woman got a sudden “Oh, sh(oo)t!” look on her face. The man who walked in pointed at the woman and said to the woman’s companion, “Is that your wife?” That man let go of the woman and put his hands in the air and said, “She’s not my wife!” I decided outside needed me right then. Don’t know how the scene played out.

‘Alligator Still Seen in Area’
When one thinks of an alligator, you probably picture the Everglades in Florida or an alligator encaged at a zoo. You probably wouldn’t think of coming across an alligator in the wild in Wisconsin. In 1966 however, residents of Clarks Mills were convinced an alligator was among them and just a year later that fear would resurface with reports of another in Door County.
It all started one day when a young boy came running through the streets of Clarks Mills claiming an alligator was “trying to eat his little sister”. The little girl was unharmed by the gator other than be terrified by it. Once away from the gator she reported to her mother that the animal had its tail straight up in the air and its jaws wide open as if it was ready to eat her.
The announcement by the young boy led to searches around the area for the alligator. An alligator hunt was organized which drew farmers with their shotguns and rifles. The search even brought experienced alligator hunters to the area. The search for the animal went on for weeks but only traces of an alligator were found. The actual alligator was never found.
Two weeks before the incident with the young boy and his sister, local fishermen fishing in Lower Cato Falls said they saw either a large catfish or an alligator in the river. Due to the proximity of the two sightings it is quite possible the alligator could have wandered from one place to another. In the weeks and months following the sighting in Clarks Mills, sightings would be reported around the area.
The story made headlines across the state from Appleton to Rhinelander to Waukesha. Not only did the story make statewide headlines but it also attracted national headlines, since alligators are supposed to be in Wisconsin. Postcards began coming in from around the country to a local reporter who had been writing on the events occurring about the alligator. The senders of the postcards became very creative. One said, “Am spending the winter here but will see you again next spring”. The sender of that postcard was from Miami, Florida and signed it “Guess Who”. They even put a little green alligator in the corner.
The story was brought to life again in July 1967 when an alligator was photographed on a beach in Door County by a conservation officer. The gator was eventually captured. Residents of Clarks Mills began to worry again after this sighting and capture in Door County that the alligator which had terrified the young boy might still be around.
So, where did the alligator from Clarks Mills come from? According to an article in the Appleton Post Crescent from August 1966 three small alligators who were being raised as pets disappeared from their owner’s backyard a few months back. It was speculated that the one which terrified the young children may have been one of them.

"You Americans don't know how to fight. All you want to do is slaughter us." – Wounded German officer captured at Mons, Belgium in 1944.
“You’re damned right.” – Sgt. Muriel F. Lehman, Marissa, Ill., tank destroyer TC.
First Lady Jill Biden handed out cookies to about 30 National Guard soldiers as a way of appeasing the soldiers mistreated and politicized by the Democratic Party. With video of "We're sorry" speech.
Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut said Guard soldiers might be needed in DC “for the foreseeable future.” Other stories have said 5,000 soldiers will remain in the capital until at least mid-March.
Here's a guess: Democratic leaders planned on having soldiers in the capital until mid-March to show what need be done in order to keep white supremacist Republican insurrectionists at bay. The monumental screw-ups, though, will lead to FBI and ATF findings of a danger lessened because of decisions and moves by the Biden Administration.

From Moose in the Yard
At least 74 million Americans voted for Trump. They are not ‘loons’, despite what Bill Maher or Katie Couric thinks. Neither are they ‘brainwashed.’ Nor do they have a ‘cult-like adoration’ for Trump. Of course, every movement has its fringe, but the millions who comprise the Make America Great Again movement are, in no way, a passing parade of wackos.
You may believe they are going away. You may be convinced that CNN and ABC are right when they talk about ‘deprogramming and cleansing Trump supporters.’ If you want to follow the leftist Hollywood stars who today vilified Trump voters, go ahead, but you can never say you were not warned.
Above all, consider this: there will be a backlash, and I will explain why, in a moment. What you must understand is that the very first victims of this backlash will be Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. For obvious reasons, I should not even be letting this out of the bag…but railing against Trump supporters will make it impossible for Biden to succeed.
At first there will be a lull. Trump will go golfing and folks will hang up their MAGA hats. For the moment, corporations and banks will give in to woke threats and ban products and try to cancel folks like Mike Lindell, the My Pillow man, for supporting Trump. And, at first, that will work.
74 million people who will not let an issue go is a Congressman’s worst nightmare. They can run, but they cannot hide. And if they want to be reelected, they had better listen.

Counting illegals will give Texas up to three more House seats.
From Legal Insurrection
“Texas was one of the many states whose legislatures Democrats expected to gain in the 2020 election. Their anticipated ‘blue wave; didn’t happen; instead, Republicans made significant gains at the state level, granting them a significant advantage in redistricting.
“Texas has almost 2 million such residents out of nearly 30 million — enough extra people to bring billions in federal largesse over the next decade, and add considerably to its clout in the U.S. House.
“’Don’t get me wrong, I support President Trump and I appreciate what he was trying to do, but this is good for Texas,’ said state Rep. Phil King, a Weatherford Republican who chaired the redistricting committee the last two years. ‘It probably means the difference between getting one and three new congressional seats.’”
"As if it's not enough that he sent an angry mob down the mall to invade the Capitol, didn't try to stop it and a police officer was killed. I don't really know what else you need to know," she explained. "The facts were there, we saw it right there on the platform during the inauguration as you can still see the spray paint at the bottom of many of the columns." – Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar on precedent for impeaching a former president.
President Trump “sent an angry mob down the mall to invade the Capitol…” The president directed the angry mob. The president told the angry mob, “Go to the Capitol. Invade the building. Drive out those people who stole the election from you.”
Proof, Senator. Proof. Oh. That’s just another Democrat lie? The Democrats lied about President Trump? Should not those people be punished for lying? “Do not tell a lie,” parents tell children. Become a Democrat, disobey that rule and maybe you can get a high elected job.
I am consistently amazed at Democrats who believe I am as stupid as they are, that they are convinced I will believe lies as easily as they do.
Painting of pig estimated at 45,000 years old.
From The History Blog.
The image of a wild pig on a cave wall in Sulawesi, Indonesia, has been dated to 45,500 years ago, making it the oldest known cave art animal in the world. The life-sized Sulawesi warty pig (Sus celebensis) was painted in dark red ochre on the limestone wall of Leang Tedongnge cave. It was outlined in profile and filled in with lines and dashes. There are two hand stencils over its hindquarters.
The pig was able to be dated thanks to a coralloid speleothem, a tiny calcite deposit known as cave popcorn, on one of its hind legs. Researchers chiseled the calcite from the wall and conducted uranium-series isotope analysis on extracted samples. The results found the pig was at least 45,500 years old, and very likely older given the time it must have taken for the speleothem to form.

Breitbart had the story first, major news organizations have nothing I can find.
From Election Wiz.
“National Guard troops protecting the Capitol were forced to sleep in a freezing parking garage because of complaints by Democrat Rep. Bill Keating (MA), according to Breitbart.
“Rep. Keating told Capitol building authorities earlier in the day that a National Guardsman was seen in a Dunkin’ Donuts without a mask on.
“After Keating said he commented out loud that masks were required to be worn at all times in a federal building, and a National Guard member responded, ‘I appreciate my freedom,’ according to a source.”
Link at neveryetmelted.com.
Keating said his complaint was not the cause for Guard soldiers being expelled from the Capitol, but on January 15, he had this to say about the January 6 break-in of the Capitol: "That was the mission, as chilling as it is, to kill members of Congress."
I'm not likely to believe anything Rep. Keating says. He has been nothing but a politician since 1977, when at age 25 he was elected to the Massachusetts Legislature.

“Lloyd Austin, President-elect Joe Biden’s nominee for defense secretary, said Tuesday during his confirmation hearing that he would work to rid the military of ‘racists and extremists.’
“We also owe our people a working environment free of discrimination, hate and harassment. If confirmed, I will fight hard to stamp out sexual assault, to rid our ranks of racists and extremists, and to create a climate where everyone fit and willing has the opportunity to serve this country with dignity. The job of the Department of Defense is to keep America safe from our enemies. But we can’t do that if some of those enemies lie within our own ranks.”
He is going right along with Democrats. The military has since the end of World War II been seen by Democrats as an impediment to even more social change than liberals slapped onto the citizenry. The military services eat up far too much money that would be better used in cities, in schools, in organizing movements for more change. Think how much more socialist teachers from Head Start through universities could be paid if we did not have the war mongers taking half the federal budget every year.
A liberal friend once said, “Fifty cents of every tax dollar goes straight to the Pentagon.” I countered his statement with facts, but it was of no use. His mind was set. Social Security, Medicare and DOD together get 33% of the federal budget.

A Twitter read for a time today: “This is the official Twitter account of the U.S. Ambassador to Israel, the West Bank and Gaza.”
A lot of people said, “Do what?” so the State Department removed the somewhat inaccurate, dishonest part and said, “We don’t know why it happened. It must have been a glitch of some kind.”
Riiight. Wasn’t one of President Biden’s new kids throwing the administration’s secret playbook out in the open too early.
Link at weaselzippers.
Twitter locked the account of Michelle Malkin.
When 26,000 Soviet soldiers invaded Azerbaijan on Jan. 19, 1990, their AK-74 rifles “used the infamous 5.45 mm caliber bullets with the shifted center of gravity, which upon entering a body – unlike conventional bullets – travel in sporadic movements spiraling through the organs causing excessive pain and internal bleeding, thus increasing chances of death.”
There were two claims about the M16. One was the 5.56mm bullet tumbled through the air, sometimes the long side striking a human target, thereby causing much larger penetration. The other claim was that the speed of the 5.56mm bullet caused easy deflection and if the pointy slug struck a bone, the bullet could go in another direction, tearing through flesh and organs.
If a bullet tumbles, accuracy is lost, and a shooter would be lucky to hit anything. A "shifted center of gravity" also would cause lack of accuracy. The high velocity deflection is also not true.
President Biden’s speech was far from inspiring. A reader of Fox News said the speech “will be talked about years from now.” Did he hear the same speech I heard?
I remember President Kennedy’s inaugural speech. “Bear any burden, pay any price.” “Let the word go forth, the torch has been passed to a new generation.” Those more than “Ask not what your country can do for you…” I was 15 and malleable. Four years later I was in 1st Cavalry Division in Korea. Five years later I was in the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment at Fort Meade, Md., training for Vietnam. Six years later I had been in Vietnam for seven weeks.
Biden is not likely to call for sacrifices of time and blood. That sort of thing is frowned upon in Democratic Party circles.

The author believes “the COVID response in this country (and in others) is exaggerated and counter-productive.” I agree, and as each day passes with the same news, others are joining the “Wait just a minute” movement. The author also believes responses to COVID are driven by fear, ignorance, money and expectations. I agree.
Incentives in decisions. Political incentives to “do something” about the issue of the moment; politicians always legislate to first-order metrics, never second-order metrics; political incentives to expand power; political incentives not to admit error; if it bleeds, it leads and references to personal circumstances when making national trade-offs.
One of the primary mistakes made by politicians, media and world residents in general is the assumption that “Humans have conquered nature.”

(Again, yesterday was not inauguration day. Today is. Unless the FBI has determined all soldiers are unpatriotic.)
Joseph R. Biden, Jr., the most popular presidential candidate ever, gets sworn in today as the 46th president of the United States of America.
Biden is so popular, he got more votes than Barrack Obama did in 2008 or 2012.
The most popular ever.
Democrats say (hope) "insurrectionists" will try to disrupt Biden’s swearing in. So much so that 20,000 (or 21,000, 30,000, 35,000) National Guard soldiers have been mobilized (federalized) to protect the future president.
Except – Guard troops cannot be trusted to carry out their assigned mission. Three-quarters of America’s National Guard soldiers voted for President Trump. That fact put such a twist in Democratic knickers that the Pentagon got all pussified and “What do we do now?” Not to worry. The FBI stepped in and backgrounded the Guard soldiers in DC.
That has to be real good for morale. “We are from the FBI and we are here to question your patriotism and determine whether you intend to do harm to President-Elect Biden during his inauguration.”
Democrats are looking for some kind of violence from right-wing groups. Right-wing groups are looking for more signs of an un-Constitutional government … doing something bad.
Stay tuned for further developments.

On New Year’s Day, 2021, a farmer in the village of Hidalgo Amajac, in southeastern Mexico’s Veracruz region, unearthed a six-foot statue of a female figure in a citrus grove. On Monday, January 4th, archaeologists from the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) identified it as a pre-Hispanic statue of an elite woman, the first of its kind ever discovered in the area.
The limestone statue depicts young woman, elegantly garbed in a long-sleeved shirt and ankle-length skirt and adorned with an elaborate headdress rising high on both sides of her head. Her small face has hollow eyes that would originally have contained stone inlays. She wears a wide necklace with an engraved donut-shaped pendant known as an oyohualli, a fertility symbol.
It is two feet wide at its widest point and about 10 inches thick. It has survived the centuries in good condition, its features still sharp and complete with its spike, a long tapered structural element extending out from under the feet of the figure that was used to keep the statue upright. Most of the female Huastec sculptures have been interpreted representations of the earth and fertility goddess Tlazoltéotl, but INAH archaeologist María Eugenia Maldonado Vite this figure’s posture and attire suggests that she may have been a ruler rather than a deity.

The head of the United Nations climate office sees a President Biden re-energizing the Paris climate agreement. John Kerry, Biden’s designated climate ambassador is ready to do his part.
“The hopes at the U.N. are high after Joe Biden recently tapped former Secretary of State, John Kerry, to head the White House climate change office.
“’John Kerry is looking to resume climate diplomacy that was disrupted under President Trump,’ the public broadcaster NPR remarked.
“Kerry, who engineered the 2015 nuclear deal, which handed out billions of dollars to the terror-sponsoring Iranian regime, now plans to revive the old climate policies by bringing in a host of Obama staffers (to the) Biden-Harris White House.
“’The contours of John Kerry’s White House climate change office are beginning to emerge, with the former Secretary of State drawing heavily on Obama administration alumni,’ Politico confirmed Tuesday.
Biden “has promised to hold a global climate summit within his ‘first 100 days in office’ to align the U.S. policy to the ones being pursued by the European Union, Canada, and others.”
So, Biden will bring about Unity by aligning US climate policy with the EU, Canada "and others." Whatever theirs is, ours will be also.
I know! Let's be like Europe!
“Spreading peace through the Middle East. Addressing progressive pricing in medical and pharmaceutical industries. Standing up to diversity and exclusion. Working with urban stake holders. Pursuing revitalization, rehabilitation, and reconciliation. Emigration reform to mitigate [catastrophic] [anthropogenic] immigration reform (e.g. “refugee crises”, illegal immigration). Renegotiating trade terms to diffuse incentives for environmental, labor, and regulatory arbitrage. Standing up to the CCP’s aggressive expansion, and calling out their human rights violations. Meanwhile, the CCP, presumably in consultation with Western intellectuals, have adopted policies and language that have evolved from the Great Leap to one-child to selective-child (i.e. planned parenthood), and, unsurprisingly, concentration camps for their deplorables. In retrospect, selective-girl policy was poorly conceived, or forward-looking with excess males migrating to resourceful destinations. The most credible criticism is that there is work undone, and he hasn’t gone far enough. That said, all-American: Pro-Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” – A comment at Legal Insurrection.
My remarks: Having established a pro-American administration and accomplished many of the things we wanted, he was found to be an enemy of the Democratic Party, China and the European Union. All who voted for impeachment must look into a mirror and remember: I voted to rid the country of the most successful president since Ronald Reagan.
That’s what she said. Honest.
“Some members of Congress huddled in ‘a secure extraction point,’ but Ocasio-Cortez said she didn’t feel safe joining because ‘QAnon and white supremacist sympathizers, and frankly white supremacist members of Congress in that extraction point, who I know, and who I had felt would disclose my location… who would create opportunities to allow me to be hurt, kidnapped.’
“’I didn’t even feel safe around other members of Congress, and to be kind of fending for yourself in that way is traumatizing,’ she said.”
There are stupid Democrats, like Georgia’s Hank Johnson, who said he feared too many Marines transferred from Okinawa would cause Guam to “tip over,” and then really, really stupid Democrats, like AOC, who when first elected did not know the three branches of the federal government and who expressed surprise that she would not immediately draw a congressional salary.
Now, she has gone beyond usual stupid Democratic congresspersons.

Go here for a map of what claims to be Oklahoma:
You might be surprised to see the borders of the former State of Oklahoma now contains Choctaw Nation, Chickasaw Nation, Cherokee Nation and then the remainder of the area labeled Oklahoma.
There was a time when all of eastern Oklahoma consisted of five nations, each one of the Five Civilized Tribes -- Choctaw, Chickasaw, Cherokee, Muskogee Creek and Seminole. The Five Civilized Tribes earned the enmity of the Federal Government by siding with and fighting alongside the Confederate States of America.
The US government got payback in the 1890s by parceling out the Nations, giving each tribe member a certain number of acres and then throwing open the rest for white settlement. In 1907, Oklahoma became a state, number 47. All former Nations members were to become prosperous farmers, as decided by the US government.
Still, I do not remember a secession vote in Oklahoma to form the present-day three nations.
Could the three nations apply for United Nations membership?

In 1814, British Prime Minister Robert Jenkinson asked the Duke of Wellington to take command in Canada and win the two-year-old war against America. The duke said he would go to America, but also stated:
“I think you have no right, from the state of war, to demand any concession of territory from America... You have not been able to carry it into the enemy's territory, notwithstanding your military success, and now undoubted military superiority, and have not even cleared your own territory on the point of attack. You cannot on any principle of equality in negotiation claim a cession of territory except in exchange for other advantages which you have in your power... Then if this reasoning be true, why stipulate for the uti possidetis? You can get no territory: indeed, the state of your military operations, however creditable, does not entitle you to demand any.”
How would the victor of wars in India and battles against French armies in Portugal and Spain fared against the often disorganized American armies? Would Wellington and General Andrew Jackson faced each other in the Battle of New Orleans? And, with the victor of the not-yet-fought battle of Waterloo gone to America, who would have led the allied forces against Napoleon? For American history and British, it is good that the prime minister did not insist Wellington take command against the United States.

Last week, my wife and I did two take-away suppers, and we did one tonight.
Chili's. My wife ordered chicken fajitas. Seven minutes to Chili's, seven minutes to home. The Chili's people left out the tortillas. Fajitas are not fajitas without tortillas.
Cracker Barrel. Phone-in order. I ordered gravy and biscuits. My wife drove 15 minutes to Cracker Barrel. She picked up our order. In the car, she checked the order. No gravy. She went back inside and then had to wait more than 5 minutes for the gracy.
Sonic (tonight). My wife drove to Sonic. She and our oldest son ordered cheeseburger, no mayonnaise. The order screen plainly said "no mayonnaise." She drove home. Both orders had mayonnaise.
Our son said, "And those people want $15 an hour."
