Breitbart is Here

Ace of Spades

…First up, I don't want to let Andrew Cuomo's disgusting remarks slide both for their own sake and more broadly what they reveal not only about him but about the Democrat-Leftists in this country as they are today.…

Breitbart is Here

Ace of Spades

…The top story as we head into Thursday is the President's completely justified and long overdue revocation of former CIA director John Brennan's security clearance yesterday afternoon. The reaction from the forces in the Dem-Left-Media complex are predictable.…

JJ fishes the news and brings home the bacon. Wait, what?

Blogging will be even lighter than usual while I'm on the road.

Feeding Ourselves

Yum

…Got 4 Prime ribeye cap steaks from Costco. Salt, pepper, 4-5 min each side in hot cast iron. About 10 min in a low oven, then back in the cast iron to finish them & baste with butter. Served with mushrooms sauteed in the pan drippings, garlic parmesan asparagus, and mashed potatoes.

Yum. Best steak I've ever had, if I do say so myself.…

…On this day in 1248 the foundation stone of Cologne Cathedral, built to house the relics of the Three Wise Men, was laid. Work progressed on the cathedral for 632 years.

…Despite the allegations of abuse about Keith Ellison, he easily won in a landslide for his run at the Minnesota AG slot as fellow traveler and probable perjurer Ilhan Omer won in her bid to take his vacant House seat. Criminality and general mopery are generally seen as resume enhancers for Democrats.…

JJ's got the world laid out for your perusal.

Geezer

…On this day in 1040 King Duncan I was killed in battle against his first cousin and rival Macbeth who then became King of Scotland and the subject of a play by Shakespeare published in 1623. All just so American students could be subjected to it in English literature.

Vic almost forgot, but then he remembered.

…First up, in the wake of the Charlottesville leftist-orchestrated Reichstag fire protests, it is now painfully apparent that the narrative the Democrat-Left-Media complex attempted to establish, starting with last year's deadly debacle, has now blown up in their faces.…

JJ's report - the world unfurled for your understanding.

The Blog Heaper may not be keeping up too well in the next week, due to stuff. We'll see. Only been keeping up sporadically anyway. Is anybody out there?

Ace of Spades

…Nothing like a bloody riot over the anniversary of a Reichstag Fire of a staged event to try and distract from the real scandals going on including Dianne Feinstein's unwittingly (or otherwise) having a spy for the Chi-Coms on her staff for 20 years, the heir apparent to take over Keith Ellison's House seat committing perjury, the Democrat ties to the New Mexico Jihad terror camp, and the continuing revelations that the case against PDT is nothing less than a coup attempt by Obama and Clinton to overthrow the 2016 election.…

Whew. And that's just where JJ starts.

President Donald Trump

…Shortly after the news broke that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) still maintained some ties to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) — a far-left fringe group widely condemned as an anti-Christian “hate group” by critics — Attorney General Jeff Sessions dropped the hammer. …

It's something, anyway. Thanks, Jeff. Now dig deeper.

Cosmology

A rogue planet has been discovered outside of our solar system… skirting the boundaries of our solar system — just 20 light years from Earth… roughly 200 million years old and around 12 times the size of Jupiter… independent of a sun… The surface… is roughly 1,500 degrees Fahrenheit (816 Celsius), sitting “right at the boundary between a planet and a brown dwarf, or ‘failed star…’”

Big City Stories

…Unfortunately for Emanuel, not all Democrats agree with the notion that Chicago should be a “Trump-free zone.” State Representative LaShawn Ford – a Democrat – called on the president to extend his assistance to the city: “Not everyone believes Chicago is a Trump-free zone,” he said, “If he’s serious about helping the people, I accept his help. We can’t turn any help away.”…

It came from the sky

Meteor

…NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory confirmed an object of unspecified size travelling at 24.4 kilometres per second struck earth in Greenland, just 43 kilometres north of an early missile warning Thule Air Base on the 25th of July, 2018.

But is it Art?

…The Parthenon is the single most influential building in Western history, if not world history. As simple as it looks, it is a really complex piece of architecture. Just the art historical concepts alone could fill an entire class lecture. A great introductory video is NOVA's "Secrets of the Parthenon".

Star Trek - less with us

The Enterprise

A classy lady who was always great with the fans, so I've heard. Sad.

…On this day in 1965 rowdy blacks in the Watts area of Los Angeles attempted to burn their neighborhood down. They didn't succeed in burning the Korean stores in the area for some odd reason.

Start with Vic's news and it's all downhill after that. Or is it uphill? Probably uphill both ways, in the snow, barefoot.

…On this day in 1977 in Yonkers, New York, 24-year-old postal employee David Berkowitz AKA "Son of Sam" was arrested for a series of killings in the New York City area over the period of one year. He killed 6 people and wounded 9 others. Why is this asshole still breathing our air today? NY has not executed anyone since 1963 is why.

Vic's cooked up his thoughts and links to share - give 'em a taste.

…As I have said before, it's becoming more and more difficult to categorize specific news items because they all are interrelated. And as time passes, the common thread connecting all of them and in fact becoming the story itself is the attempt by a significant minority of the citizenry attempting nothing less than the overthrow of this nation and the permanent subjugation of the people. …
