Here is a nice piece about what happens it to you if you have the NERVE to even criticize AOC….

Prepare for that Knock on the door.

WHAT A LIFE

By Pete Moore On April 10th, 2021 at 5:00 pm

Before he became the Duke of Edinburgh, plain old First Lieutenant Philip Andrew of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderberg-Glücksburg attended the Japanese surrender in 1945. He was on a Royal Navy destroyer which escorted the USS Missouri and on which the ceremony took place.

 

OH NO YOU DON’T

Spain has blocked the auction of a painting in Madrid, following suggestions it could be a long-lost masterpiece by the Italian Renaissance artist Caravaggio.

The starting price for Crowning of Thorns was initially 1,500 euros (£1,300; $1,800).

But if it is indeed by Michelangelo Caravaggio, it could be worth up to €150m.

The painting is being examined by experts and declared “not for export”.

I’m torn on these things. On the one hand, by what legitimate authority does the state block the sale of an object? On the other, we don’t want magnificent works of art disappearing into private collections or snapped up by gauche moneymen who might not appreciate them or know how to properly preserve them.

The Over reach will be reeled in….

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled late Friday night that California cannot ban in-home religious services while allowing other similar activities in the secular world, once again ruling in favor of religious liberty in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

The 5-4 ruling was led by the court’s most conservative justices, including newest member Amy Coney Barrett, while Chief Justice John Robert’s once again joined the liberal bloc as he has during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Slowly the assault to American’s Civil Liberties are being corrected, but even in the Courts it’s along Party lines which to me is scary as hell. There should be no politics in our judicial system, but it has always been a political Animal, but it was on a leash of written Law. That written Law is starting to mean less and less and that should make you all worry.

Lot’s of little tin pot dictators have run amok over the last year. The death count of 5 of them is half the deaths from Covid in the U.S. and I will beat that horse until if ever justice is served on it, but there have been a million little trampling’s of peoples Natural Rights.

Not only have peoples rights been trampled but also peoples dignity has been taken. That is what needs to be addressed and never will be.

What makes this country work are the majority that work their 40hr week and live their lives as they each want. You took that from them, and locked them in their homes. Barred their children from school.

Yes it is and was a bad disease, but the damage that has been done by the “Preventative” will in the long-term have destroyed more lives than the disease takes. We will suffer over 100,000 over doses projected this year, suicides in all age categories are off the charts children suicides 12-17 have risen 700%.

No one is addressing these issues and they are the only ones that really count.

ATW FRIDAY NIGHT JUKEBOX

Because Friday night is Music Night

Another week done at the coalface of capitalism and Spring has given way to Winter. I almost took a flamethrower to the ice on the motor the other morning. I don’t mind Winter but by now I’m ready for a bit of sunshine over the bluebells.

It’s amazing how many great songs Bob Dylan wrote then almost murdered with his singing. It’s a testament to his songwriting chops that they could withstand his voice. But there they still are, like the beautiful “One More Cup Of Coffee”.

Have fun whatever you’re up to this weekend. As always, feel free to share your top sounds down below –

COMMIES TO STEAL THE SUPREME COURT

By Pete Moore On April 9th, 2021 at 7:21 pm

President Joe Biden will create a commission to study possible changes to the Supreme Court, including adding seats or instituting term limits, the White House announced Friday.

They say Joe Biden. Everyone knows he won’t be around long. The radicals who would follow him aim to steal the Supreme Court by packing it with radicals, revolutionaries, wrong’uns and weirdos just like them. Don’t bother asking by what constitutional right they could do it. This is about power.

NEVER HEARD ANYTHING SO PATHETIC

By Pete Moore On April 9th, 2021 at 7:14 pm

Dog owners will be relieved to hear that the Home Secretary has responded to public pressure and launched a dog theft government team to battle the rising number of stolen pets.

The UK is enriched by a spike in dog thefts now. Demand for dogs during lockdown has seen prices rise. Dodgy types, the usual suspects, are helping to meet demand by stealing dogs. The Home Secretary has decided that a “dog theft government team” is just the ticket. Patel’s not even pretending to do anything now. Again, if only the useless Tories had a thumping great majority with which to make a meaningful change.

Life without parole.

Dog lovers know how special they are. They know that dogs are fully a part of the family, and they know the heartache and misery of losing a dog. I would impose a tariff of life without parole – minimum – for anyone convicted of stealing a dog. There’s not much worse that someone can do in my book. The crime marks the culprit out as not worthy of civilised society, so out you go for good. And that would be just the start of what I’d do to the filth.

Negligent Homicide, and a Cover up

By Patrick Van Roy On April 9th, 2021 at 3:07 pm

Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s coverup of nursing-home COVID deaths was even worse than we’d thought: It turns out his Department of Health started collecting the key data a full year ago — even as it kept the info secret in defiance of lawmakers’ rights as well as the Freedom of Information Law.

A DOH memo obtained by The Post shows the department began ordering care homes to report both in-home and in-hospital deaths of residents last April. Yet for nine months Team Cuomo refused to share it, with Health Commissioner Howard Zucker insulting legislators with bogus claims the info wasn’t accurate enough to release and other staffers falsely claiming they couldn’t compile the info to comply with FOIL requests from the Empire Center.

 

It’s not the boobs he groped, it’s the Seniors he KILLED.

In a last-ditch effort against Union forces, Confederate General Robert E. Lee realizes the effort is futile and surrenders his 28,000 troops to Union General Ulysses S. Grant at Virginia’s Appomattox Court House. The surrender triggers others across the South, as the American Civil War finally winds down.
