        Look at the people living in the Powderhorn neighborhood. Won’t call the police, have had numerous robberies and several rapes and now a homeless encampment, drug dealers are using the area because it’s cop-free, and they’re afraid the criminals’ lives might be at risk if they encounter the police.
        What about their own lives and the lives of their children.

      The only problem is that nobody knows the extent of dispersion of the Iranian Nuclear Infrastructure, since 2016. With allot of help from external sources such as the EU, Russia and China, my concern is these strikes look good but how effective were they??

      Even in the relatively crude conditions of WWII, the Nazis actually increased production of of key weapons using dispersed manufacturing and assembly. Thankfully they had no transportation, fuel and people to deploy and use them.

        They were able to increase production of some things but never to an optimal level to achieve any tactical benefits. Plus they never had the Ural bomber


        • thedoc00 says:

          As usual spouting off to show your ignorance and not reading the comment. The point is they built key weapons and allot of them, especially tanks and planes, were not able to us it due major looses in key areas needed to actually use them.

          That being said, the the Iranians have been dispersing the manufacturing for WMD for a long time and hopefully this hit a key node in that dispersal.


      • Robert Smith says:

        After the Israeli Secret documents trove they moved out of Iran I assume Iranians see all past sites as at high risk. So a whole new raft of facilities have been and are being built.

      Lolli, it’s true. The TADA, or Texas Advanced Directives Act, gives the hospital death board all the power over patient, family, or doctor. Should the patient be incapacitated, the hospital can pull the plug anytime. You don’t have to be in a vegetative state either, btw. It’s whatever capacity the patient is in that the hospital sees as their right to pull the plug or, as they usually do it, by denying nutrition and hydration.

      If the patient or family don’t like this death order by the hospital, then they have only 10 days to try to find another hospital or facility to move them to. The Texas Right to Life organization here has been fighting this battle for patients on this front ever since this law has been implemented since 2015.

      You are right, it’s all about the money. This TADA is backed by the Texas AMA, the powerful Texas Hospital board, even the TCCB, the Texas Conference of Catholic Bishops (don’t ask me why they support this law…it has to be the money).

      TADA came up for a vote in the last Texas legistlature for revision. It asked for the representatives to extend the 10 day rule to 45 days for the patient to find a new facility to move to. It lost.

      So it’s best not to be in Texas if you are very sick and need to be in a hospital. You may not come out alive.

          Lolli, I don’t know about having to be in the hospital just to have the HCQ cocktail…that would be new info to me, if that’s true. There are a couple of Texas doctors on the internet, Dr. Lorenzo, Dr. Proctor, that have videos about how they are using HCQ cocktail to treat their patients when symptoms just appear with 100% successful cure rate.

          There is another Texas Doctor Richard Bartlett that has found a very common, plentiful asthma medication given early on to patients will have a 100% successful cure rate. His video is here…

      Treepers, this is such important information. The Chinese-Arab alliance puts Chinese military power at the disposal of the jihad. China, of course, couldn’t care less about giving power to Arab nations. China is merely using the “shared future” stratagem to further their goal of dominating the world. While I believe a physical battle between Chinese forces and the last vestiges of Western Civilization is not imminent, it is only a matter of time until the total physical battle will be on.

      It is absolutely and completely vital that our President, Donald John Trump, remain in office. He is standing in the gap against evil forces which are guiding China. May God bless him and have mercy upon America.

      China and Arab states adopt Amman Declaration to deepen cooperation, establish “shared future in the new era”


      As China allies with Arabs and Russia with Iran, America stands as their chief obstacle, a free democratic country that because of its very freedom must be destroyed, particularly now while it is under the leadership of Donald Trump.

    CCP virus death counts are fraudulent – reported by racially-oriented organization!!

    The number of deaths reported publicly come from the Covid Tracking Project.
    From their web site:

    “COVID-19 isn’t affecting all communities equally. We’ve partnered with the Boston University Center for Antiracist Research to collect the most complete racial data anywhere in the COVID Racial Data Tracker.

    We’re tracking racial and ethnic data from every state that reports it—and pushing those that don’t to start. Together with the BU Center for Antiracist Research, we’re analyzing this data to uncover the true impact of the outbreak on vulnerable communities.


    Check the last graph at the article linked below — they report deaths by date of REPORT, not date of DEATH, so they add deaths from previous months to this week’s deaths !!

    Orange bars are deaths by DATE OF DEATH, blue bars are deaths by DAY OF REPORTING

    If we allow this kind of overt criminality to go unpunished we will doom the USA too 3rd World status. By the same token, if we are able to flush these subversives out of the system we can again surge forward for all of mankind and the West specifically.

      I have a better idea. The gubt who pays for the schools anyway puts together real classes online. One class taught to all, one curriculum. We may need a few teachers, but not many, and we certainly won’t need all the schools, boards or other ankle biters. That’s also how we get rid of their unions.

    I think the MSM is really on our side. I know this because they have identified 2 strains of the virus. There was one that was in the states that “opened too early” (Georgia, Florida, Texas, Arizona etc…). The incubation period is approximately 3 months in these states. And then the shorter incubation period like the virus that thrived at President Trump’s Oklahoma rally.

    MSM is working hard on the BLM incubation period, but we can all be grateful that the media is looking out for us on when society should be locked down or opened up .

    Wear your mask, take your vaccine and get ready for homeschooling guys. Corporate media says we gotta conform or we are racisit. Thank gosh they know how to interpret the data.

    I stole this from a commenter called BDavi52 at Reason because IMO it is a good summary of what America is up against:

    This comment is about an article regarding the 153 liberals (some now recanted) who cosigned a letter published in Harper’s (IMO a pretty limp call for sanity with the usual swipes at Orange Man Bad). The ‘Revealed Truth’ portion is the meat of it.

    ‘“There’s just no sane connection between the text of the letter and such a reaction.”

    C’mon now….of course there is.
    As R.G.Collingwood noted, if decisions & actions are not intelligible — if they seem insane — then we must conclude that either the Decider is mentally ill (highly unlikely)…OR….that we ourselves have not yet truly understood the nature of the position they hold such that their actions can be seen as rational. History is opaque to the extent that we fail to make that internalizing leap.

    So clearly, when we see & are shocked by the tidal wave of outrage which greets the exceedingly pablum-like declaration that speech is and should be free, we have failed utterly to understand the nature and the depths of the totalitarian intolerance which characterizes the Woke Progressive.

    The Spanish Inquisition, however, provides us with some critical insight.

    It is rightly argued by the West and more particularly by the Enlightenment as given voice by the Constitution that Truth is a function of dialogue and discovery. This dialogue, this discovery is only possible given freedom of speech. In turn, that freedom enables challenge, enables learning, and inevitably moves us closer to Truth.

    So — why would anyone NOT wish to engage in such dialogues that can lead to an improved understanding of Truth?

    Because they already OWN the Truth, as did Tomás de Torquemada, the Grand Inquisitor.

    The 15th century Church — and in particular — the Holy Office of the Inquisition had no need for dialogue or free-speech-driven doctrinal challenge. No! Indeed, such was heresy punishable by death. There was and is no need to improve an understanding of the Revealed Truth because it IS the Revealed Truth (understood most clearly by its Priests and Progressive Potentates)

    So when 153 Heretics band together to publicly suggest that the Revealed Truth can be challenged … OF COURSE that generates not just bloody outrage but the Mob, complete with pitchforks, tar, feathers, and lots of pikes upon which can be placed all the heretical heads.

    We’re not dealing with a Political Philosophy given voice by the Left, we’re dealing with True Belief and Religious Fervor, hair shirts, self-flagellation, and the ongoing auto-da-fe. Welcome to the New Inquisition; say hello to the New Red Guard.’

    Ricky Gervais: ‘If You’re Mildly Conservative on Twitter People Call You Hitler’
    12 Jul 2020


    The creator of The Office, Ricky Gervais, has called out the online “fascists” that want to shut down freedom of speech, saying that “if you’re mildly conservative on Twitter people call you Hitler.”

    Continuing on his press tour marking the nineteenth anniversary of The Office, Gervais followed up his criticisms of cancel culture with an attack on the idea of so-called “hate speech”.

    “There’s this new weird sort of fascism of people thinking they know what you can say and what you can’t and it’s a really weird thing… that there’s this new trendy myth that people who want free speech want to say awful things all the time. It’s just isn’t true, it protects everyone,” Gervais said in an interview on talkRadio.

    The British actor and comedian said that people trying to shut down free speech in the name of combating “hate speech” are “fascists” who “behind this bit the shield of goodness”, saying: “we’re good, we’re social just warriors, we’re doing this for good and what we say goes… and they don’t realize how corrupt and wrong that is.”

    Mr Gervais said that while he backed certain caveats on freedom of speech, such as libel and slander laws, he said that countries should never criminalize speech that “someone, somewhere, might find offensive… because someone, somewhere might find everything offensive.”

    “Just because you’re offended it doesn’t mean you’re right,” he added.

    He went on to say that in today’s culture the phrase “I’m offended” has replaced the need to craft an argument or use reason.

    The comedian explained that it will be impossible to police “hate speech” as there is “no consensus on what hate speech is” and therefore it becomes dangerous for one side to determine the rules around it, as “the people who think they want to close down free speech, because it’s bad, are the fascists.”

      There’s no point in making arrests if the suits are just going to let them walk. They’re openly INVITING chaos and lawlessness while setting these precedents (OK to vandalize/destroy a church)… I expect it to get worse.

    Everything IMO since Feb 4, 2009 until Jan 20, 2017 has been about……..

    Gathering data (dirt) on thousands, including judges to use as Blackmail to ensure their Destruction of America Plan would move forward unopposed and funded via massive kickback and money laundering schemes.

    And here were the key data gathering tools used IMO.

    1) Hammer Spying Program – 2009-2012

    2) NSA Contractor Spying Program – 2012-2016

    3) Sex Trafficking Program

    4) Congressional IT Spying Program

    And here were some of the funding programs used IMO:

    1) $21 Trillion in missing DOD funds – 1998-2015

    2) Kickbacks and Money Laundering via NGO’s

    3) Iran Kickback

    4) Ukraine Money Laundering

    5) Various Foundations & Money Laundering Schemes

    6) Uranium One Kickbacks

    The sad part IMO is so many in DC have dirty hands and due to their sins and blackmail will never step forward and tell the truth.

    But IMO the evidence is there to expose it all if only PT would push for it but the problem is PT and Barr are focused on the cover-up (i.e. Russia Collusion fraud)

    This will not get them to the top dogs and exposing the real crimes and real objective IMO.

    Focus on the earlier spying and why it occurred and who orchestrated as it will lead you to the real crimes, which will then lead you to the money laundering funding schemes.

    Focus on….

    1) Deposing Montgomery
    2) Reviewing the 47 hard drives
    3) The Wiener Laptop contents and those missing emails
    4) Conduct a COMPLETE audit from 2012-2016 of the contractors who conducted thousands of non compliant NSA searches via the FIB computers.
    5) Squeezing Maxwell
    6) Re-opening the Congressional IT scandal using honest investigators
    7) Re-opening Uranium One Investigation and begin by deposing the 2 WB
    8) Use the NSA database to track down coup plotters communications and work backwards
    9 Exposing all the unmasking from 2012-2016 and who ordered them

    All of this has been virtually white washed and ignored. WHY??

    Because these things hold the keys to the truth and the real crimes and exposes their real plans while also leading to their funding schemes.

    So yes the coup on PT Is big and ballsy as I say but there is something much, much more sinister and bigger behind the coup coverup, if people would just step back, look at everything above that has transpired since 2009 and how they all connect and feed to where we are today.

    Think about it…

    It “possibly” explains……
    1) why the three letter agencies were weaponized
    2) why no IG oversight of the DOJ/NSD
    3) why the mass retirements in DC
    4) why the weak outrage by so many in Congress,
    5) why the infamous database comment
    6) why the recent strange actions by some judges
    7) why so many critical people have mysteriously died

    I so wish I could get PT to see this much bigger criminal activity which has spread like a virus for years and has now permeated across all branches of our Federal Government IMO and it all began with one simple concept….

    Gather dirt to use as blackmail leverage to move your agenda forward virtually unopposed while using money laundering schemes as the ongoing “drug” to control everybody and fund everything.

    They knew once many, many key hands were dirty there would be no going back and they had the ultimate protection from any future exposure or investigation.

      BF, I take exception to your notion that PDJT is “letting it slide” as suggesting that he is forgetting about all of the corruption and evil. I believe that he underestimated the extent of the Deep State and is having to spend more time marshaling his support than he expected. I pray that a tsunami in 2020 gives him the mandate to stop the Judicial from Legislating, empty the Deep State and most of Congress, and put patriots in charge of the military. To accomplish that, most of the coup members will need to be harshly reoriented.
      Making Soros and more than a few of his friends get familiar with RICO, and taking slander, libel, and fraud attacks on the media to a level that would embarrass Lawfare would be a priority also.

I don’t think he was aware of what he was doing but when presented with the facts, she had no where to hide. it was a thing of beauty to be hold. He said there is plenty off PPE, ventilators, open ICU beds. He has people on call form CO if he needs them but since they know how to treat the virus successfully now there is no need for additional personal at this time.

    Also, Chris Wallace showed the chart of cases rising and deaths falling was down and yet they are still trying to paint the picture of the sky is falling.

    No doubt it all about the election and on November 4th like magic COVID will disappear, I am hoping it disappears before that but even if it does the fake news won’t tell anyone.

      This guy’s business contacted every single state in the country and compiled Wuhan CCP Virus statistics. Out of 130,000 deaths, 110,000 were people over the age of 65, especially with per-existing conditions. We know what to do and who to protect.

      Further, 98% of media reporting was negative on cases rising etc., and only 2% was on death rates decreasing and other positive results.

        The “Out of 130,000 deaths, 110,000 were people over the age of 65, especially with per-existing conditions.” statistic is important when one looks at the overall mortality rate in the US. Why? Because the stats for our general mortality rates pretty much match those of Covid.

        Without playing the gamed “age adjusted” mortality rate that is published and using the full and truthful numbers the US had a overall mortality rate of 864 deaths per 100,000 population or 2,839,205 deaths in 2018. Now can you guess how many of those deaths were 65 or above? The answer is 2,103,469 or 5,762 per day or average of 3,996 per 100,000 per population of those that age.

        Welcome to your “Golden Years’-the average mortality rate per age group above 65:
        65-74= 1783.3 per 100,000
        75-84= 4,386.1 per 100,000
        85+= 13,450 per 100,000

        The inverse is 735,736 or 2,015.7 deaths per day or average of 268 deaths per 100,000 for those under age 65.

        Now, is COVID truly “attacking” the sick and elderly more than those under 65 compared to average mortality rate? The answer is no. Curious as to the average annual mortality rate in US Long Term Care facilities? Somewhere in the neighborhood of 31% +/-3-5%.

        Starting to get the feeling that a lot of the “normal/usual” elderly and nursing home deaths are being hidden in the Covid count or rather visa-versa?

    My friends, I have this theory about the uni-party and what will follow, after the second term of President Donald J. Trump, and it goes a little something like this:

    (Disclaimer: Very sorry if it seems a little crass, normally I endeavor to be a gentleman at all times, but I am a little bothered by both the RINOS and the left this morning.)

    “Time for America to have its ultimate political ticket, which based on the use of vowels at the end of the name, we have rightly dubbed the STRIPPER TICKET. What happens when you combine the the global experience of Nikki Haley with the interesting past of Tulsi Gabbard?

    You get the Nikki / Tulsi STRIPPER TICKET, which we believe could last a full sixteen years if these ladies simply switch positions each term. Who needs polling data, when we simply have poles for exotic political dancing. Let it rain money, all donors wanted and private, backroom deals, are always allowed (just no touching).”

    I could go on an on with puns and such, but I will stop here out of respect to the entire community that adds to this blog. You do not even want me to get into the song selections for the uni-party convention.

    Carter Page had a FISA warrant taken out on him in fall of 2016, but he had previously been the target of a FISA warrant in 2014 regarding a Russian spy case in New York City. How many bad guys would be referenced in two separate FISA warrants and have zero culpability in those cases? What are the chances? I had never heard of FISA prior to CTH.

Yet, they have branded us as “a bastion of white supremacy”, so now they are going to bring their issues here. I’m willing to bet that more black people are killed in Oakland every single week than have been killed in Martinez in it’s 144 year history. In fact, I can’t even think of a single one. I don’t see BLM saying a single word about the carnage that is ongoing in their own communities, yet they want to slander us and come here to cause trouble. The especially frustrating thing about it is that they will get away with it because of media bias and a Soros funded SJW as the district attorney.
