Georgia: $100 million for voting software???

Try an Excel spreadsheet and a couple of bean counters. Or a couple of bean counters and a clerk with an adding machine if you don’t want to pay for the Microsoft Office subscription. Each election day could be done for less than a thousand bucks, because you can bet you wouldn’t have to pay the Democratic and Republican watchers to stand by and watch the bean counters.

In small business, at least, if you are going to survive, you don’t go for all the bells and whistles. Bells and whistles break, then you need “experts” to fix them, then on top of a subscription you have to pay for a maintenance contract, then you are down the whole time you can’t get hold of a technician, then it’s all on the frickin’ cloud so it can be hacked, and on and on and on.

K-I-S-S – “Keep It Simple, Stupid.” Get the job done with the least amount of expense and time and move on to the next thing.

But of course this is government we’re talking about, even if it is Georgia with a Republican administration. There are no doubt kickbacks involved, whether to the Governor or Secretary of State or lower down the food chain, Democrats and Republicans alike. And the bottom line is, the $1oo million they spent has left a big hole in their credibility.

Sidney Powell is shining a big light into that black hole the Georgia country club Republicans and big money Democrats have created with $100 million spent on highly suspect voting software. Hopefully she will have time and attention to make her case. Americans’ trust in their democratic institutions is at stake.

And after all, all we’re talking about here is an accurate count of beans.

Movie Review: “World War Z” gets it mostly wrong.

The most interesting thing learned in the past year is that viruses are not biological organisms. No one knows how they got started. They are some sort of otherworldly code whose only purpose in life is to find healthy biological organisms and disrupt or destroy them.

 “World War Z,” the 2013 virus thriller starring Brad Pitt, gets the otherworldly part right. And it brilliantly portrays and portends the Wuhan Virus Damnpanic that has swept the world this year. In “Z” infected humans are a metaphor for viruses themselves, each with one purpose: find another, healthy human and ruin him. If there’s not one, they just stand there, waiting for one. Once a healthy host is detected, they attack it like a cruise missile and within seconds, a healthy human host becomes another virus.

Everything else is laughably wrong.

The first thing we learn is that the President has died and it’s up to a lone emissary from the United Nations (UN) to find a solution to the existential threat to humanity. This he does with the help of the World Health Organization (WHO). In reality this year, the WHO was complicit with the Chinese Communist Party (CPP) in covering up the Covid 19 virus. And the real President, who should have been vulnerable by age and health standards and did get infected, was back in action in no time.

A scientist in “Z” mentions another virus that originated in Taiwan. Viruses do not typically (if ever) originate in Taiwan. Taiwan is a free democratic republic and it has been an example to the world of how to squelch the virus. It seems in fact that most known viruses originate in fascist Red China, and in reality this year, the CPP concealed the existence of Covid 19, promoting its spread around the world by restricting travel within Red China but allowing travel outside the country.

In real life it was not a bogus international public health organization like the WHO that found an antidote to the virus as in the movie, but capitalist pharmaceutical companies which came up with therapeutics and now a vaccine to neutralize it. It was not a UN hero but the Trump administration that created Operation Warp Speed.

Oh, and Israel’s walls keep the virus out quite well in the movie until the liberals get carried away letting refugees in and the virus gets so excited by the noise that it surmounts the wall. The screenwriters had no idea they were going off-message, so please don’t put them in reeducation camps. Trump didn’t start pushing the wall until 2016.

People were dying left and right in “Z.” Not so much with the real virus. The media has gone to great lengths to scare the bejeezus out of everybody and certain corrupt health officials have buggered the statistics to keep the numbers moving up, yet the actual death rate is hardly more than a bad flu season.

 “World War Z” was in the bargain bin at Wal-Mart. It was Saturday night’s entertainment. Not too bad for four bucks. It might bring back a dollar or two at McKay’s.

A very suspicious outcome.

In case you think you are having a case of déjà vu lately, consider this post from a couple of years ago at our previous location on Blogspot:

December 13, 2017

A very suspicious outcome.

When I called it a night about 9PM central time, 70% of the precincts had reported and Roy Moore was leading Doug Jones by over 60,000 votes. This morning they say Jones won by some 20,000 votes. That means that the Democrat precincts were held for counting until the end. If the election results were corrupt, that’s exactly what the manipulators would have done: waited to the end to see how many votes they needed to manufacture.

I don’t know much about Roy Moore. I am not a passionate supporter. But I don’t like trial by innuendo. I’ve been in that position myself before. And I don’t like the good ol’ boys network. From my perspective that’s exactly what teamed up against Jones to do him in by whatever means necessary, the boys being McConnell and Schumer and Ryan and Pelosi and their puppets.

The fix was in on Roy Moore from the beginning, just as it was on Herman Cain before him, and Bernie Sanders, and Fred Thompson, and maybe going all the way back to Al Gore, though I shed no tears for him. Before that I think we had vulnerable but overall reasonably honest elections.

Today, I’m not so sure.

The software accused of monkeying with vote totals in this election has been around for many years and has no doubt been used not only by the DNC, but also by establishment Republicans to freeze out candidates they don’t like.

Election integrity is at the very root of democracy. If America cannot ensure it, so goes the world. And there are most certainly forces at work in this world who will take advantage of a disaffected American electorate.

The most urgent priorities of a second Trump administration

Presumably, as of this writing a second Trump administration hinges on the outcome of the legal efforts led by Rudy Giuliani with the able assistance of Sidney Powell and Lin Wood. To any Trump supporter, there is no question that the election was rigged and the results are false. Trump opponents are whistling past the graveyard.

They are whistling past the problem that there was no blue wave. Republicans actually gained seats in the House. And barring a miracle or wildly reckless corruption considering the eyes of the world will be upon Georgia, the Democrats will not win control of the Senate. And yet, considering how poorly they did in down-ballot races, somehow Trump did not win? Not believable. Hopefully the good lawyers will get enough traction in short time to expose the wrongdoing.

They say about Trump that he is like U.S. Grant in that he always looked like he was about to lose a battle just before he won it. We shall see.

So looking forward once President Trump has nothing at risk (i.e. another election), he should attack the following priorities head on. Why these? Because as goes America, so goes the Free World, and it is now more at risk than ever – yes, ever – from both internal and external enemies who would like nothing better than to take it down for their own empowerment. These isues are problems that risk America’s standing as the beacon of freedom for the world:

1. Finish the Wall. Good fences make good neighbors. Mexico is beginning to figure this out. Without helping secure our border, they will never get a handle on the drug lords that threaten the country’s present and future. Then, institute prudent and efficient immigration policies.

2. Institute rock solid election reform. The 2020 presidential election has been a disaster, just as President Trump predicted. No one on either side has any confidence that it wasn’t rigged. If Americans can’t trust that their votes have full value, the cynicism will poison the social fabric.

3. Face down China. The CCP is the most effective fascist government yet seen in modern history. We cannot let them take Taiwan, at any cost. And until and unless they clean up their act on human rights, we should ratchet down our trading relationship with them until it hurts.

4. Clean the old guard out of the GOP. Whatever its flaws, we have a two-party system and it does no one any good if the conservative party is run by spineless hacks. They have pretty well revealed themselves by sins of commission – that would be the Never-Trumpers – and omission, by those who appease and cower before the identity politics of the DNC.

5. Deep six the Deep State. Justice, State, DHS – they are mortally compromised. Even with good leaders like Barr and Pompeo, little progress has been made. President Trump ought to sic Ted Cruz on the problem. He seems to have more C.O. Jones than the rest of the Senate put together.

6. Balance the budget. Eventually the Piper has got to be paid or the country will be weakened by compromised finances. It is a law of nature.

Hopefully that graveyard which President Trump’s opponents are whistling past has a few empty urns available for the ashes of the DNC’s promises of higher taxes, increased regulation, open borders, abortion on demand, mask mandates and shutdowns, and especially, the Green Raw Deal. May they rest in peace. If on the other hand, the Biden team prevails, then that graveyard will fill up with the ideals that make America stronger and the urgent objectives for a Biden presidency will be all about damage control.

ABC News Radio Should be SHA News Radio

That would be, Shameless Hussy of the Airwaves. They were bad enough leading up to the election. Now their spin is out of control.

This morning ABC News Radio reported at the 4:00 hour that “the current resident of the White House” refuses to concede although he fell five million short in the popular vote count.

What they failed to mention is that President Trump’s margin of loss was five million votes in California alone. That means he was dead-even in the rest of the country, and that’s before accounting for the fraudulent vote totals in favor of Biden. The left is taking every opportunity to delude itself that Biden got a mandate and Trump has no case.

Just a wild guess here, but it sounds as if somebody at ABC News Radio is booking for a job in an FCC run by a hoped-for “new resident of the White House.”

It ain’t over ’til the fat lad sings.

Joltin’ Joe Biden was supposed to give his big “president-elect” speech Friday night, but oops, that afternoon a ruling came down from SCOTUS that Pennsylvania had to segregate all votes received after 8PM election day. That touched off a furious debate within the upper echelon of the DNC over whether it was bad form to declare victory before anybody else did, what with formal acknowledgment that something smells rotten in the state of Pennsylvania… not to mention several other states.

The Biden cadre wanted to do the speech to gain the momentum, to seize the upper hand, but they needed Fox News to capitulate first so that the self-aggrandizement had an air of legitimacy. Those of use who have watched Fox News deteriorate into more of the same as the rest of the media, know that it means no such thing. Finally after intense pressure, Fox obliged and everybody else pitched in Saturday. Thus the speech was Saturday night.

Ever since, all you can hear about is “President-Elect” Biden followed by dismissive reports of Trump’s accusations of voter fraud “WITH NO EVIDENCE.” I have never heard news delivered before where they qualify every single thing by one politician and never challenge the other in even the least way. The DNC scrounged for three years to find even a smidgen of evidence of collusion with Russia for impeachment and yet the media never qualified Schiff & Co.’s wild accusations.

Anyway, since Biden’s faux self-promotion, there has been dancing in the streets and a collective spiking of the ball by both the crazy left-wingers and the GOP Never-Trumpers.

The filings this week will throw cold water on all that. And the DNC is actually counting on it. They know they’ve committed Grand Theft POTUS and they have intentionally, cynically gotten the hopes up of their entire base in order to ensure that when the pushback of justice comes, there will be chaos in the streets. Their miscalculation is that their followers’ throwing fits matters. EVIDENCE is not owed to the media. EVIDENCE is presented in court, and courts will decide what was done right and wrong in the vote counting.

President Trump, uncharacteristically, has been very quiet. I can imagine that nothing makes his opponents more nervous. He knows when to hold ’em and knows when to show ’em. He has withstood constant, fallacious, and vicious attacks for four years and neutralized all of them. My money says he will serve the DNC and the Never-Trumpers a guano sandwich once again.

So the fat lad ain’t singing yet. I suspect it won’t happen for another four years. Buckle up. As Jack Bauer used to say, “This is gonna hurt.”

Why did so many Jews stay too long in Nazi Germany?

You would think, by the time their shops were being vandalized in the early 1930s and certainly by 1939 when they were being forced to wear the Jewish Star, German Jews would have figured out that it was time to flee the regime at any cost. Fighting was not an option. Gun ownership was banned and they were too few and scattered anyway. The “good” Germans were scared to death, too. Helping a Jew hide or escape was tantamount to a death wish.

Many German Jews did flee, of course. At great cost and danger. Nowhere is this depicted more vividly than in Herman Wouk’s great work, The Winds of War. And nowhere is the failure of so many Jews to flee depicted more tragically than in the followup work, War and Remembrance. If you want to understand World War II, those two works – or the television miniseries based on them if you can find a copy – will not only give you an understanding of the history but will transport you to the horrors – and humanity – of the Holocaust. The characters are relatable, normal people young and old, simple and sophisticated, like you or I. Real people.

For me the need to prepare for disaster came home as I watched what happened in New Orleans when Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005. If you were stuck there, you were hopeless. Besides the rain, the wind, and the flooding from the government-mismanaged levies’ failing, there was widespread looting and rampant unchecked criminal behavior. In the midst of this, the government had the lamebrain idea of going door to door confiscating legal weapons, depriving citizens of the right to defend themselves when the police were too busy even to respond to crimes, much less prevent them!

It was shortly after Katrina that I started looking for land away from the city – way out Charlotte Pike, so to speak, which is U.S. Route 70, running across Tennessee from Memphis through Nashville to Knoxville. When the Nashville flood hit in 2010, I redoubled my efforts and finally in 2012 I closed on 28 secluded acres with shelter and a natural spring about an hour from Nashville. You would not believe how affordable it was. Finally I had an escape but better than that, I had my own little piece of Paradise. The many hours I have spent since then improving that property, enjoying the flora and fauna and serenity of the environment, have been a priceless antidote to the stress of working, financial uncertainties, up and down relationships, you name it, that we are all prone to face as part of normal life.

The soul singer James Brown – whom I once met, by the way, but that will be a story for another time – was a raucous entertainer but a meticulous, hardworking man who did not tolerate slackers lightly. He once said, “If you stay ready, you ain’t got to get ready.”

So get ready. People who do that are called preppers now. It is easy to make fun of preppers but it is not so easy to be one. For one thing, it is hard to know what to prep for. Earthquake? Tornado? Flood? Or bigger… EMP? Civil War? Fascist takeover of your country??? I don’t know, either. But I do have a place to go and I’ve got a bag packed in case I have to go there. I don’t cower in a cave and I haven’t become a hoarder; in fact quite the opposite. But I am getting readier all the time so that when all else around me fails, I can stand on my own two feet, help out my family and my fellow man rather than being a burden to them, and hopefully get by until things get better.

How are you getting ready?

Take a few minutes to think about it. This might just be a good time. If nothing else, let the Jews who did not get out while the getting was good be an example to you of the consequences of not getting, and staying, ready.
