Last thing before I sit a while and then hit the sack:

I need to find more information on double rifles.  I'd like to have one, but I'd really like to take, say, an old side-by-side receiver for a start and build one.  Something not too hard to feed, like .30-30.

Yes, I know, like I need one more thing to distract me from- well, crap I really should be doing.

7th Night again, with what that brings

Which is a combination of "Hey, it's not bad out there, and tomorrow's supposed to be better!" and "Crap, in a couple of days it'll be damn cold again."  In other words, January and early February.

Oh, and the data dump, that got done.

From the same bastards pushing tens of thousands of illegals across the country...

BERMAN: Why should Americans care about what’s happening in Ukraine?

FINER: Because it goes to a very fundamental principle of all nations, which is that our borders should be inviolate, that our sovereignty should be respected.

Coming from these lying bastards.
An agent pressed Mayorkas on how DHS can reconcile saying border security is the main mission for Border Patrol, yet agents are unable to patrol the border due to the policies the Biden administration has in place. Border Patrol agents are being utilized to process the thousands of illegal immigrants.

Mayorkas said he “appreciated the candor” and explained he is working to ensure agents have the personnel, funding, and equipment they need to do their job. The agents replied they have been hearing that answer for years.

Worthless lying backstabbing bastard.

And some clearance to go along with it

Friday, with the weather moderating before

another mass of arctic air next week.  Ah well, it's January about to turn February.

And it's time for some imaging of nice subjects to take your mind off your difficulties for a while.

And now, we wait for spring

When the storms start, and I found out about the new roof.

We had some really nasty winds a while back, and coming home one day I glanced up and "Bleep, there's a shingle missing!"  Which led to calling someone for a recommendation, and the insurance stuff.  During all that, some more winds and "BLEEP, there's another missing- and part of another, over there!"

Not that long ago I could think "Comes to it, I might be able to do this myself."  Maybe badly, but might be.  Now, not a chance, as- among other things- I really don't want to fall off, it being a bit steep.

But it's done, so I can try to not worry about that anymore; I'm sure there'll be something else that will require it.

Remember, though, All Cultures Are Equal!

Associated Press reported that Tariq “was arrested in September at Camp Upshur in Quantico after Marines observed him fondling the girl, who was not related to him, above her clothes on her private parts.” Since there were witnesses, the conviction was not hard to obtain, but Tariq was surprised that anyone would object: “According to court papers, Tariq tried to explain through interpreters that his conduct was acceptable in his culture.” His defense team, apparently aware of the explosive implications of this claim, tried to have this telling detail thrown out of the record, but “efforts to have his statements suppressed were rejected by the judge.”

And while lots of people who'd worked with us and were supposed to be priority on Afghans being evactuated, lots of them were left behind and people like this brought in.  Because Biden and the Woke Generals are fucking idiots.

And there've been how many rapes and so forth, so far, that we know of?

In which the Capitol Police overreach again. Probably at the orders of Pelosi

...It was only three weeks ago Capitol Police Chief J. Thomas Manger testified his security force was plagued with severe staffing shortages.

“The biggest challenge I have is the staffing problem,” Manger told the Senate Rules and Administration Committee. “You can’t do training if you’re so short of staffing that you can’t pull people off of posts and send them to do training.”

But you've got enough people to do this surveillance crap that you're not authorized to do?  I think you're full of crap.

Let the investigation of the Democrats pet clowns begin.

I'd have thought bigger,

but I'm pretty sure they can measure better than my guess.
"This is a preliminary estimate, but we think the amount of energy released by the eruption was equivalent to somewhere between 4 to 18 megatons of TNT," Jim Garvin, chief scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, said in a statement.
Whatever the number, BIG boom.

I should've just put all this crap in one post in the first place

Can you say 'Moving the goalposts'?
I knew you could.
Wonder what the clowns will 'pivot the language on ' next?

At this point change President Lawdog's plan for the UN in one way: leave the bastards in the building when you blow it.

Ah, Californicated, you never fail to disappoint.  
Bureaucrats who need to be fed to sharks.

And now, to lighten the mood, courtesy of Wirecutter,

One more teacher who we need some more information about

Like "How many times have you done this before you got caught on camera?"  And "Any of the others doing this?"
The North Penn School District in Pennsylvania apologized after a photo emerged of a teacher at Pennfield Middle School taping a mask to a child’s face:
An image taken in one of our classrooms last week and circulating on social media does not represent the universal values that the North Penn School District strives to instill in both our students and staff. After an immediate investigation, it was determined that while the incident was isolated and no malice was intended, the actions of the teacher were entirely inappropriate and unacceptable, no matter the context.
'The matter is being addressed'.  Unless that includes firing or a long suspension with no pay, that means "Don't get caught doing this, it makes us look bad."

Here's one of the reasons the Senate killed that sanctions bill

Anyone surprised there's corruption involved?
Affiliates of two European companies that fund Russia's Nord Stream 2 pipeline contributed to the campaign of Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.), who Republicans say has blocked sanctions on the Kremlin-backed project.
Block, it, block it, "Oh no, we want to save that as a last resort of Russian invades."  Bullshit.

Fauci and Collins belong in jail, and should be sued by all the doctors and researchers they tried to ruin

The damage they did, both to the science they claim to champion and to lots of people, is huge.
Note the irony: to 'stop conspiracy theories', they created a conspiracy to hide the truth.
Bold mine:
Andersen reported to Fauci that “after discussions earlier today, Eddie, Bob, Mike and myself all find the genome inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory.” Eddie is Edward C. Holmes of the University of Sydney; Bob is Robert F. Garry of Tulane University; Mike is Michael Farzan at Scripps Research. In their unanimous view, the virus didn’t come from nature and may instead have escaped from a lab.
You might think that the senior administrators present at the conference would have rushed to investigate the startling inference that their expert advisers had drawn. But just one day after the teleconference at which his experts explained why they thought the virus seemed manipulated, Collins complained about the damage such an idea might cause. “The voices of conspiracy will quickly dominate, doing great potential harm to science and international harmony,” he wrote on February 2, 2020, according to the new emails.

Even after the March 2020 Nature Medicine article, which made the natural-origin theory the mainstream view, Collins still fretted that the lab-leak idea had not been sufficiently suppressed. “Wondering if there is something NIH can do to help put down this very destructive conspiracy,” he emailed Fauci on April 16.
So what induced these virologists to such a radical change of view? “The February 1, 2020, telecon sent a clear message to participants that Fauci and Collins regarded discussion of the lab leak possibility, even though plausible on scientific data, to be politically unacceptable and something that had to be blocked,” says Richard Ebright of Rutgers University, a molecular biologist and a leading critic of gain-of-function research.

Fauci oversees a large portion of funds available for virology research in the U.S. It is not unreasonable to suppose that virologists keen on continuing their careers would be very attentive to his wishes. Both Garry’s and Andersen’s labs receive large sums of money from the NIAID. “Telecon participants with current and pending grants controlled by Fauci and Collins could not have missed or misunderstood the clear message,” Ebright says.

They've repeatedly lied under oath, they went through games to funnel money to the PRC for what boiled down to biological warfare research.  They tried to ruin- DID ruin some- anyone who pointed out the elephant in the lab.  And they may well have been instrumental in the deaths of one hell of a lot of people.  And THEN they pushed a vaccine at any cost and trashed the idea of other treatments.

Jail.  At the least.
