I don’t like the Pauls

By Patrick Van Roy On February 1st, 2021 at 2:46 pm

But like a broken clock they tend to be right on occasion, this is one of those twice a day moments.

Friday, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) appeared on FNC’s “The Ingraham Angle” to criticize the National Guard presence on Capitol Hill, which he likened to what one might see at a “major army base.”

The Kentucky Republican said the sooner the fencing was taken down from the Capitol grounds, the better.

“[I] mean, when you look at the Army encampment that we have now, it really looks like a major army base there,” he said. “There are still 5,000 troops this huge perimeter with razor wire. This isn’t really a great image for a free country or for our country. So, I say the sooner it’s torn down, the better. Who’s making these decisions, I guess, they’re unilaterally being made by Nancy Pelosi, maybe Chuck Schumer. But I think also Democrats need to look in the mirror a little bit. They very quickly assumed that the enemy within is Republicans, and they’re potentially violent. But nobody really looks in the mirror for the Democrats. They’re not really very self-aware.”

“Kamala Harris said contribute to the Minnesota Freedom Fund to bail out some of these protesters,” Paul continued. “Well, one of the protesters that they bailed out soon as he got out, cracked someone’s skull, fractured someone’s skull, and caused a brain injury. And that was because Kamala Harris, not specifically her on that issue, but she was encouraging the bailing out of these violent protesters. But no one’s called for her impeachment. No one’s saying that she should be held responsible for her speech. Maxine Waters, Cory Booker, they say get up in your face. They say mob them. So, it seems to be sort of a double standard that the enemy within only these Republicans apparently, and none of the things that Democrats say seem to be of concern to them.”

There is another POINT that needs to be talked about with this show of force.

As our Capital looks like the Capital of any Dictators, Barbed Wire and Gun Emplacements, it has proven something beyond a doubt. We can use the National Guard to seize control  of the streets of a major metropolitan city without any problem or civil rights violations.

There has been Zero crime in the area of Washington DC where the troops are.  They have brought crime to a halt.

As cities like Portland continue to burn with Anarchy, and Cities like Chicago suffer from 700 murders, and 4000 shootings a year, gas station owners have had to hire their own Security to protect customers from car jackers, think of what 4 weeks of peace to the citizens of those cities  would feel like to them.

There is no threat to DC, crazed Qanon rightwing loonies aren’t coming to storm the capital. No one is, no one ever was, but we have this farce playing out this theater act for the Nation with DC as it’s stage and our threatened fearless leaders are working under siege, a siege caused by the Enemy within……

Stop the Farce in D.C., send the National Guard to Chicago and Portland where the Citizens are under Siege from lunatic Democrats.

Long live the artisans

I love my food, I love to cook and, in my opinion, the most essential ingredient in any kitchen is good butter. For flavour, texture and to cook with it’s worth every penny. Once you’ve had proper butter you won’t buy cheap spread again. In my opinion the best butter comes from Brittany. In fact that butter is the subject of this fascinating report. I discovered “Le Buerre Bordier” on a French road trip some years ago and had never tasted a butter so creamy. I can’t find it in the UK so a friend of mine sends me a block each month. It’s she who texted me the link to the film.

Jean-Yves Bordier, who makes it, is a reassuringly insane Frenchman who says that making butter is all about “emotion”. It’s also about making it in a traditional method. There’s no industrial mass production going on here. It’s butter made the old way, with emotion, by a mad Frenchman, and if you ever see it on a shelf then get some, and tell me where that shelf is.

Captain Sir Tom Moore has been admitted to hospital with coronavirus, his daughter has said.

The 100-year-old, who raised almost £33m for the NHS, was taken to Bedford Hospital after requiring help with his breathing, Hannah Ingram-Moore said on Twitter.

She said he had been treated for pneumonia over the past few weeks and last week tested positive for Covid-19.

Mrs Ingram-Moore said her father was not in intensive care.

Everyone hopes he pulls through of course. If he doesn’t the angst will be another Diana-fest. He’s had a good innings but fingers crossed because he’s a 100 year old man with pneumonia.

Protests have been taking place in Polish cities for the third night in a row following the introduction of a near-total ban on abortion.

Abortion is now allowed only in cases of rape or incest or when the pregnancy threatens the life of the mother.

It’s a compromise, but one which is about right. The BBC has been keen to report on the protests, but a Catholic people elected a party espousing Catholic policies, and it enacted a law based on Catholic moral teaching. That’s democracy, for good or ill.

Maybe the protestors should just set up their own country.

The UK will apply to join a free trade area with 11 Asia and Pacific nations on Monday, a year after it officially left the EU.

Joining the group of “fast-growing nations” will boost UK exports, the government says.

The Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership – or CPTPP – covers a market of around 500 million people …

Members include Australia, Canada, Japan and New Zealand.

Brunei, Chile, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam are also founder members of the bloc, which was established in 2018.

“In future it’s going to be Asia-Pacific countries in particular where the big markets are, where growing middle-class markets are, for British products,” International Trade Secretary Liz Truss told the BBC’s Andrew Marr.

It rather stretches the definition of Pacific, but Liz Truss has been a very effective Secretary of State. The CPTTP is the third-largest trading area. A key advantage is that Vietnamese judges will not be supreme over British courts. I hope we get even more decent grub out of it. I love my Asian food.

Funny or an Outrage ?

LONDON (REUTERS) – British police are searching for the vandal or vandals who painted a COVID-19 face mask on the figure of a mysterious giant carved into a hillside in southern England.

The Long Man of Wilmington, a 235-foot high chalk outline holding a white stick in each hand, is protected by law as an ancient monument. Its exact origins are disputed but many archaeologists date it to the Anglo-Saxon or medieval periods.

“Whilst this damage may have been perpetrated for humour or some other reason, the actions that have been taken are unacceptable,” said Tom Carter, a sergeant with Sussex Police.

“The Long Man of Wilmington is protected by law as a Scheduled Ancient Monument for its historical significance.”

This is a repeat but….

This is about the Reddit/GameStop incident. Dave Portnoy of Barstool Sports gives a great take on the corruption that took place that is well worth hearing.

We’ll have troops on the ground in a year…

Washington (CNN) The Biden administration has paused arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates as it conducts a wider review of agreements worth billions of dollars made by the Trump administration, sources familiar with the matter told CNN Wednesday.

Secretary of State Tony Blinken confirmed that pending arms sales are under review, as is typical at the start of a new administration, “to make sure that what is being considered is something that advances our strategic objectives, and advances our foreign policy.”


The Biden Administration is in the process of reopening negotiations with Iran. They are dangling the lifting of sanctions off the Head of the Snake of Terror Iran, but before the Iranians can even laugh and throw their first lies at the Biden Administration they are given the gift of vulnerable enemies as we freeze Arms Deals headed to Iranian targets.

Mind you at the same time this is playing on one side of the table…. on the other side Biden just crushed American Oil Production to levels below what they were before Obama making us instantly dependent upon oil from the Middle East.

We will move the fleet from the China Sea back to the Persian Gulf and we’ll have Troops on the ground by next Spring as the ME burns and we have to keep the Oil flowing as O’Biden reignites the fires in the Middle East.

I could barely believe what a young lady said to me today. It was as delightful as it was surprising.

The scene is me wandering around Sainsburys this morning. I have everything except candles. I like a smelly tealight and they do a lovely Madagascan vanilla. But I couldn’t find the candles. They’ve moved things around and I was stumped. A young (in her teens is my guess) Sainsburys lady walked past. “Excuse me” I said, “do you know where the candles are?”

Yep, she said it. She actually said it: “Fork handles?”

I laughed. She laughed. I told her she looks far too young to know that scene. She said her father raised her properly, i.e. by watching The Two Ronnies. Then she pointed out the candles, about five feet behind me. For those in the colonies wondering what on Earth I’m going on about, it’s this:

The Real President never needed Censorship by the back door

By Mike Cunningham On January 30th, 2021 at 6:25 pm

Long time back, well, just over three months ago, the dead hand of censorship commenced its stealthy reign in what was, once, the Land of the Free. Cancelling, doxxing, removal of legitimate speech; we’ve seen it all before, but never as blatant as in the rule of the new God-King, China Joe Biden.

There were well over fifteen hundred allegations of outright vote theft, tampering, machine violations, none, repeat none of which got anywhere near a hearing in a real Court. Every thing was negated, hushed up or just plain ignored. Its all too late now, the Electors have spoken, and the new God-King is in the Oval Office, trashing nearly everything which had even the shadow of President Trump cast over it. And are they all happy; are they relishing their new found approval rating?

It seems that at least one YouTube video, the actual recording of Biden’s Inauguration has been, over a 24 hr. Period tampered with. As is shown, in this post from a seriously smart lady by the name of Zoe Phin, the ‘dislikes’ outnumbered the ‘likes’ by some 130,000. And, as demonstrated by this dead-clever lady, the YouTube Swat Team deleted all 130,000 dislikes over a 24 hour period.

One timeline example, before the deleters got to working, can be found at 

The published video shows 1.2 k Likes, and 3.4K Dislikes. The saved video (Unable to embed) shows 4.3K Likes, and 48K Dislikes.

Say it ain’t so; Joe!

 Within six hours of posting a video, the dislikes were nearly ten times high than the likes — but then the magic eraser of unpopularity gets to work.

It’s just like voting, right?

Strange, I believe we were all told he was ‘The Most Popular President of All Time.
