The days having rolled around again to one of those evenings,

you have a good idea what's below the fold

Oh, this has the Didn't Earn It people in an uproar

Supreme Court Rules 9-0 That Reverse Discrimination Is Good Cause for Lawsuit; Left Frets That This Ruling Will "Complicate" Their Desire to Discriminate Against Straight White Men
"You can't discriminate against someone because they're white, or male, just because you claim you're 'trying to make up for past discrimination'."  Which has all the Usual Suspects crapping themselves.

DEI offices and consultants and other racists hardest hit.

Hey, remember Pres. Gropey's order to build a dock in Gaza

to give Hamas the stuff to keep killing Israelisfeed the poor abused Gazans?  How's that going?
Last October I wrote about the potentially catastrophic state of our country's maritime support system, the U.S. Maritime Support Fleet. Biden has someone in charge right now they mockingly refer to as "The Ghost Admiral." We have already lost the capacity to mobilize a tanker fleet to fuel our naval vessels at sea in event of a large scale conflict. 
What this exercise attempting to cross the Atlantic has proven is that we may not need tankers. Our poorly maintained and continually neglected naval vessels, be they Navy or Army, may not be capable of making it to the conflict to begin with.

Read it.  Calling this a cluster would be raising it in status.  And the personnel trying to do something with all this mess are screwed.  

And so are we.

On this day in 1775

On April 19, 1775, British forces were returning to Boston from the Battles of Lexington and Concord, the opening engagements of the war. On their march they were continually shot at by American militiamen.

Whittemore was in his fields when he spotted an approaching British relief brigade under Earl Percy, sent to assist the retreat. Whittemore loaded his musket and ambushed the British grenadiers of the 47th Regiment of Foot from behind a nearby stone wall, killing one soldier. He then drew his dueling pistols, killed a second grenadier and mortally wounded a third. By the time Whittemore had fired his third shot, a British detachment had reached his position; Whittemore drew his sword and attacked.[7] He was subsequently shot in the face, bayoneted numerous times, and left for dead in a pool of blood. He was found by colonial forces, trying to load his musket to resume the fight. He was taken to Dr. Cotton Tufts of Medford, who perceived no hope for his survival. However, Whittemore recovered and lived another 18 years until dying of natural causes at the age of 98.

Speaking of treacherous, backstabbing politicians,

The Heritage Foundation's Oversight Project posted an image on X of what they say is a flyer from a non-governmental organization operating in Mexico encouraging migrants to vote for President Biden once they arrive in the United States.
"RCM bills itself as an operation which houses functions for Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS), which helps illegal aliens enter the United States," Oversight Project said, adding that disgraced Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas "is a former board member of HIAS, which received numerous grants from Soros' Open Society Foundation over the years."

And the Democrats and their hounds in the intelligence agencies and 'Justice' Department will keep giving him a pass

I just reviewed a portion of Biden’s classified documents that were taken from his basement by Special Counsel Hur.

They were HIGHLY CLASSIFIED and relevant to current national security threats.

We need an immediate damage assessment from the Intelligence Community.

On the latest "Let's make up a law" crap,

Irish has a rundown.

If you're in a state where it may do some good, yell- politely- at the Congresscritters, because the more noise made about this, the better.

"That's right, she's hot,

now keep your distance."

My, such an incestuous group

 The ‘whistleblower’ who sparked Donald Trump’s first impeachment was deeply involved in the political maneuverings behind Biden-family business schemes in Ukraine that Trump wanted probed, newly obtained emails from former Vice President Joe Biden’s office reveal.

Even if I had no other problems with the World Health Organization,

this crap would be a deal-breaker:
WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus and any of his successors would have unrestricted authority to implement WHO regulations.

The treaty would provide “a framework for international cooperation and solidarity” and address issues like surveillance systems and responding to outbreaks, Ghebreyesus said when announcing the treaty during a March press conference. “The world cannot afford to wait until the pandemic is over to start planning for the next one.”

The World Health Organization “global pandemic treaty” includes a plan for a mandatory, universal digital passport and ID system. Article 4 of the draft outlines the treaty’s overarching “principles,” including “universal health coverage,” “equity,” “transparency,” “inclusiveness,” “gender equality” and “diversity. “ Also, the treaty targets “misinformation” and “disinformation.”

Throw in all the other crap, and there's a simple response:

It would appear that there's not punishment enough for the bastards who helped create the Wuhan flu

And God only knows how many people are dead or dying because of their doing so, and their efforts to hide their part in it, and pushing a vaccine that's... bad.

I doubt anyone not connected would get the same consideration

Carroll testified in court in January that she had the "high standard revolver, nine chambers" and ammunition near her bed. "I still do not have a license," she said of the firearm while testifying.

The local police who paid the February visit to Carroll's home said she surrendered the firearm after authorities "offered to secure the weapon at the police station's property for safekeeping" until Carroll obtains a New York pistol license, per NBC News.

Bleep, what a load of crap.

"I caught it!"

 "Shut up, dog."

If there's a war and they're involved, the Brit Navy is screwed

Britain's £6billion fleet of Royal Navy destroyers have gyms where land attack missiles should be due to the weapons being too expensive to buy.

The lack of weapons on the Type 45 warships has raised concerns the Navy is falling even further behind the United States, with drastic shortages of sailors also prompting warnings.

Well, you crap on your military, want everyone all woke or gone, and decide you'd rather spend on social(ist) crap than keep your forces ready, what do you expect?

Like our military, in fact.

'Anti-War' my ass: as long as someone attacks the US or Israel,

they're as pro-war as can be.

With this shit proving it:
A smile creeps across her face as she tells me: “They’re part of the arc of resistance because the enemies are Israel and the USA.”

(about the tag: this may not meet the legal definition, but that's what this is)

The new head of NPR: New boss,

same and just as leftist as the old boss.

You can just feel the desire to report both sides of things, can't you?

Have to wonder if one of the reasons for the Iranian drone/missile attack

was to tell President Gropey "Screw you, we'll do what we want.  Now give us more money."

One of my least favorite people in the country,

Rashida Tlaib, who's made it to the House, is a member of the Squat, constantly bitches about how bad a country this is, and it seems would start handing out candy and dancing in the street* if a big terrorist attack hit us.

That big rally in Dearborn where the lead speaker went through is 'worst country, shouldn't even exist(ever notice these people never leave, though?), and then the chants of 'Death to America!' broke out.  Such wonderful people, aren't they?  Well, somebody actually committed journalism and asked her about this, since it was in her district:
Fox Business' Hillary Vaughn had caught up with the congresswoman, who, before even being asked a question, screeched "I don’t talk to Fox News! I don’t talk to Fox News!" As Vaughn managed to communicate that "at a rally in your district people were chanting 'Death to America,' Tlaib once more replied "I do not talk to Fox News!" before Vaughn could ask if the congresswoman condemned the phrase.

When Vaughn was able to get a word in to ask, Tlaib changed her answer, but only slightly, and it wasn't to offer any sort of condemnation. "I don’t talk to people that use racist tropes," she said.

"Why can’t you just say whether or not you condemn people chanting 'Death to Amer…' Why are you afraid to talk to Fox News," Vaughn continued to ask.

I'd say she's not afraid to, she's pissed that someone actually asked her about this, and made it worse by not backing down she the started the standard leftist line about 'racism'.  Because, apparently, quoting people is a 'racist trope' when she doesn't want to respond to a question.

If you want to see this, here's the X link.

The real question about this is why someone from Fox was the only Professional Journalist who asked her about this.

*As long as she thought she wouldn't be seen or the compliant media wouldn't report on it.
