Jerks Knee Jerking

Nevada Gov: No “off label” HCQ treatments for you. Because Tropical Fish?

Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak has restricted the prescription of two malaria medications that President Trump named as potential remedies for coronavirus, after a man died and his wife was hospitalized for using a fish tank cleaning additive with a similar name as a substitute.

Sisolak, a Democrat, issued an executive order Tuesday prohibiting prescriptions of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine for coronavirus patients after the president mentioned the two drugs during a press briefing.

“While the two drugs have necessary medical purposes, there is no conclusive evidence at this time among COVID-19 experts or Nevada’s own medical health advisory team that the drugs provide treatment for COVID-19 patients,” Sisolak said in a statement.

While addressing reporters, Trump mentioned both drugs as being fast-tracked for use as treatment, touting their likelihood of being effective despite the FDA still testing it for coronavirus use.

The order also limits a prescription to a 30-day supply to ensure it’s available for “legitimate medical purposes” and so that people cannot find a way to stockpile the drug.

Sisolak faced a backlash from Trump allies over the order, as the drugs are in fact being used in trials. They are among a select group of possible therapies the World Health Organization is currently looking at as potentially treating or preventing COVID-19, though the effectiveness of the drugs remains unclear.

The WHO originally did not have the two drugs as part of their trial, but high interest led them to reconsider.

I didn’t post on yesterday’s story about the two idiot senior citizens in Arizona who poisoned themselves by taking fish tank stuff. Because chloroquine and because Trump. Most of the news was about the news; how the various DemMSM media outlets had used this as a cudgel against the President. I did look into it quite a bit, which not one of the media sites has done.

First, the stuff is not fish tank cleaner. It is aquarium antibiotic. HUGE difference.

Second, this stuff generally uses a different kind of chloroquine (the sulphate variant), and often has some other kinds of really strong medicine mixed in with it.

Third, it is really hard to find in the USA in consumer sized amounts, and not all that easy to locate in professional bulk either.

Fourth, in Australia and other areas around there on the far side of the world, prices have been skyrocketing for a week now.

So these two winners in AZ aren’t the only people thinking along these lines. And unless they were major tropical fish enthusiasts, I have a whole lot of doubts about their story. Like, maybe they bought it from eBay in panic. Or maybe this is a perfect murder. He’s dead. She survived. Blame Trump.

There have been media stories about hoarding HCQ, although whatever kind of hoarding that might impact the distribution channels would have to be done at the drug warehouse level to make any difference.

Very little news front page coverage that the Isreali pharma company TEVA has given the USA six million doses. That would be positive news and the DemMSM exists only to fuel the panic in order to bring down Trump. However the story is out there, but it didn’t fit the agenda.

And now we have the Governor of Nevada banning the HCQ / Z-Pack treatment. Because OF COURSE he’s a Dem.

However, the entire chloroquine angle is being denigrated by the Left, simply because President Trump mentioned it. I admit, I’ve spent far too much time digging into this whole coronavirus situation since the very beginning. Aspects of the disease, it’s origins, victims, tests, and treatments. While various forms of chloroquine have been being used for this with pretty good effect around the world for quite some time now, it is not a perfect panacea. Nothing is. But the moment our President mentioned it as a ray of hope, it was instant anathema to a large part of our media who then ran all kinds of negative stories about it. And Governor Sleestak is playing the same tune. Remember this, Nevadians.

[ If you want to stay abreast of the latest news about treatments, trials, and other COVID R&D, the investor pages are your best bet. They put these stories out there without political bias and without drowning you in medical terminology. ]

Add Klobuchar To The Loser List

Amy Klobuchar Drops Out Of Dem Primaries

Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar ended her Democratic presidential campaign on Monday and plans to endorse rival Joe Biden in an effort to unify moderate voters behind the former vice president’s White House bid.

She is flying to Dallas and plans to join Biden at his rally Monday night, according to her campaign.

Klobuchar was the third presidential candidate to drop out of the race in less than 49 hours, following Pete Buttigieg’s departure late Sunday and Tom Steyer’s exit late Saturday. Their decisions reflect an urgent push among moderates to consolidate behind Biden as a counter to progressive rival Bernie Sanders.

Klobuchar outlasted several better-known and better-funded Democrats, thanks to a better-than-expected third-place finish in in New Hampshire. But she couldn’t turn that into success elsewhere, as she struggled to build out a campaign that could compete across the country and had poor showings in the next contests.

You know, this is starting to smell bad. Three candidates quitting just before the Big Vote on Super Tuesday? Kinda smells fishy, don’t it? Why bother to do it now, when in 36 hours they would have known for sure that their campaigns were sunk. Or not. And at least the people - you know, all those citizens the Dems say they care so much about and who’s voices the want heard - at least the people would have made their choices.

But no. Ok, Steyer has tons of money, and two billionaires in the Dem primaries is two too many. But let’s see if Booty-Gig and Klobuchar seem to somehow soon acquire a new dacha or a small tropical island. Do the Bernie Buyout thing, just like in 2016.

Cowards or sell-outs. Or both?

Buttigieg Pulls Out Finally Too

Adios Pendejo

Pete Buttigieg, who rose from relative obscurity as an Indiana mayor to a barrier-breaking, top-tier candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, ended his campaign on Sunday.

The decision by the first openly gay candidate to seriously contend for the presidency — and among the youngest ever — came just a day after a leading rival, Joe Biden, scored a resounding victory in South Carolina. That sparked new pressure on the party’s moderate wing to coalesce behind the former vice president.

“The truth is the path has narrowed to a close for our candidacy if not for our cause,” Buttigieg, 38, told supporters in South Bend, Indiana. “We must recognize that at this point in the race, the best way to keep faith with those goals and ideals is to step aside and help bring our party and country together.”

He didn’t endorse any of his former rivals, though he and Biden traded voicemails on Sunday. Buttigieg has spent the past several weeks warning that nominating progressive leader Bernie Sanders to take on President Donald Trump would be risky.

Buttigieg on Sunday called on supporters to ensure that a Democrat wins the White House in November and that the party’s success carries over to down-ballot races for House and Senate. During previous debates, Buttigieg said Sanders could threaten Democratic seats in Congress.

While some say he’s pulling out early, others say he’s packing it in.

I expected this, but I figured he’d at least wait for the results of Super Tuesday. After all, he “won” Iowa, and tied in New Hampshire, right? And he’s still doing way better than Warren, Klobuchar, and Bloomberg. With nearly 2000 delegates to go. So this seems rather cowardly. Funny thing is, he’s still on the ballot in all those states, so who knows what will happen?

Thanks to Rich K for the heads up!!

coronavirus briefing

President Trump has given the job of leading the corona taskforce to Vice President Pence.

This is a great opportunity for him, and for us. We haven’t seen all that much of the VP so far. This will be a very public task for him, regardless of how much of a figurehead he may be here. Under the microscope, under major pressure, in front of the microphones constantly. Can the former Governor of Indiana manage and coordinate, get people to do their best, get everyone to get along, to pull together? Is he a leader, or merely a Tweeter? Can he be a hero, or will he be a zero? I want to see him become an instant expert, not just a delegater. Perfect training for a possible future President.

Go get ‘em Mike.

Meanwhile, President Trump has said that the $2.5 Billion is a starting point; more will be available if necessary.

It looks like making gowns and N95 masks is going to shift into super high gear, while the President hopes they won’t be necessary. There will also be a big “what you can do at home” info blitz. Internationally, the President is going to play it by ear with travel and trade restrictions. I’m not sure that’s the best way, but slamming and locking the door would trash the global economy overnight, which is something he (and everybody else) wants to avoid.

Looks like international tourism is going to take an even bigger hit in the near future.

an ugly mess

We watched the Democrat debate from Las Vegas last night. What a horrible thing. You can easily find a million news stories, re-caps, live blogging posts and so forth, telling you what happened. I watched because I wanted to see Bloomberg in action. 93% fail.

The whole thing was awful. Desperate angry children without a clue or a plan, soaked in the stench of flop sweat. The moderators didn’t have much control at all. Throw out a softball and let the cat fights begin. Joe Biden was comatose most of the night and was mostly ignored. Bernie Sanders was even angrier than usual. OMG, he’s so old; the osteo has taken his neck and shoulders so much. Lizzy Warren is a really unpleasant person. So is Amy Kloubuchar. Both of them were on the verge of apoplexy, lightning bolts of emotional upset and anger blasting forth. Warren hasn’t much of a plan about much of anything. but she’s got sentiment. Kloubuchar has a plan, but you won’t like it. Pete Buttigig isn’t much better. And Mike Bloomberg stood there on the end, realizing that deep down he’s still probably some kind of Republican, and hating every one of these idiots he was forced to share a stage with. At least he had the smarts to reject the death of capitalism the rest of them are all hot for, saying how this has always failed and the result is communism. A trap which Bernie, the commie, jumped right into. Oh no, I’m not a communist, I’m a Democratic Socialist. Sure, for the Workers. And Mike didn’t bother to land the one-two punch, that the last guy wanting to lead a revolution for the democratic socialist workers party was ... Hitler.

I think a better format would be to give each of them 25 minutes of yap time the day before, with 35 minutes of answering questions about issues their pontification didn’t touch. That way people could maybe find out who they are, or what they say they stand for. Last night was just wall to wall nasty, especially from Warren, and we learned very little about any of them. Other than that Bloomberg, standing there rolling his eyes at the flow of stupid around him, is nearly as impatient and angry as Sanders. There are no leaders here. There are no unifiers here. Merely extreme Leftists and even more extreme Leftists.

I’d say the only real winner was Donald Trump.

Thank God, Or A Nascent Recall

Virginia Legislature Rejects Assault Weapon Ban

Well, they tabled it for a full year anyway. That’s a step in the right direction. A small step.

RICHMOND, Va. — Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s push to ban the sale of assault weapons has failed after members of his own party balked at the proposal.

Senators voted to shelve the bill for the year and ask the state crime commission to study the issue, an outcome that drew cheers from a committee room packed with gun advocates.

Four moderate Democrats joined Republicans in Monday’s committee vote, rejecting legislation that would have prohibited the sale of certain semiautomatic firearms, including popular AR-15 style rifles, and banned the possession of magazines that hold more than 12 rounds.

The bill was a top priority for Northam, a Democrat who has campaigned heavily for a broad package of gun-control measures.

The legislation also engendered the biggest pushback from gun owners and gun-right advocates, who accused the governor and others of wanting to confiscate commonly owned guns and accessories from law-abiding gun owners. Northam has said repeatedly he does not want to confiscate guns, but argued that banning new sales of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines would help prevent mass murders.

Virginia is the current epicenter of the country’s heated debate over gun control and mass shootings. Tens of thousands of gun-rights activists from across the country flooded the state Capitol and surrounding area in protest, some donning tactical gear and carrying military-style rifles.

Northam has been able to get much of his gun-control agenda passed this year, but struggled with the proposed assault weapon ban. Earlier proposals to ban possession of AR-15-style rifles or to require owners to register them with state police have been scrapped. The governor had hoped a watered-down would win over enough Democratic moderates for passage.

Related: VA Senate blocks “unattended weapon” bill.

Don’t celebrate too much. I know the underhanded strategy here. Toss out a whopper of an overreach bill, and let it get shot down. Meanwhile, push through a truckload of nickle-and-dime bills like the one linked above, and hope that most of them fly under the radar. This is slavery by incrementalism, and for too long the people have not put a stop to it. From now on, EVERY damn bill must be scrutinized to the fullest.

Both chambers have passed some of Northam’s proposed gun control measures, and will hash out any differences between their respective versions in coming weeks. Those include limiting handgun purchases to once a month; universal background checks on gun purchases; and a red flag bill that would allow authorities to temporarily take guns away from anyone deemed to be dangerous to themselves or others.

Virginia House Bill 961—“a ban under the guise of compromise”—was tabled for a full year by the state Senate Judiciary Committee. Townhall’s Lawrence Keane warned last week that the bill would have banned “the sale of semiautomatic firearms that are commonly used for self-defense, recreational and competitive shooting and hunting, as well as suppressors.” Worse, “standard capacity magazine possession would become a crime” under HD961—or would have, had it passed. That seemed the likely result just up until minutes ago.
This morning’s vote hinged on four Democrats who broke ranks to side with Republicans in opposition to HB961.

Keep in mind that the bill will come back for consideration in 2021. Since that isn’t a presidential election year, it’s a sure thing Democrats hope they’ll be able to move HB961 forward again—but under the radar.

Stay vigilant.

... like I said.

what a dummy

On Fox News last night or the night before I saw a bit of an interview Bill Maher did with Mark Levin. The interview may have taken place some time ago, and was a prop in a roundtable discussion Levin was having with a couple other people.

Bill Maher was honestly disgruntled that the Senate had only two representatives per state, even though some states have many many times the population of other states. He was not being funny or making a parody. And Levin didn’t smack the crap out of him on the spot.

This is what our education system has created. Sad.

Hey dummy: Congress is divided into two parts: The House of Representatives and the Senate. The House is the People’s Legislature, with Congressmen elected from the several States based on their population. States with lots of citizens get more Representatives, which we call Congressmen, even though Senators are actually Congressmen too. Calling them “Housers” just doesn’t sound right. The Senate is the State’s Legislature, in which ALL STATES HAVE AN EQUAL VOICE. That’s why each State gets 2 Senators, only 2, no more and no less.

This is grade school level stuff. [ I hear AOC was recently lost in the forest, trying to find the 3 branches of government. ]

I will leave it as an intellectual exercise to the adults in the room to figure out what would happen if the Senate was also proportional, but I’ll give you a hint: it ain’t pretty, and it reeks of mob rule.

YUGE news



The Senate overwhelmingly acquitted President Trump on both articles of impeachment against him Wednesday afternoon following a brief trial, in a historic rejection of Democrats’ claims that the president’s Ukraine dealings and handling of congressional subpoenas merited his immediate removal from office.

All Democratic senators supported convicting the president of abuse of power and obstruction of justice, including swing-vote moderate Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., and Doug Jones, D-Ala.

The only party defection was on the abuse of power charge from Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, who declared hours before the final vote that Trump had engaged in as “destructive an attack on the oath of office and our Constitution as I can imagine.” Romney voted not guilty on the obstruction charge.

By a final vote of 52-48 against conviction on the abuse of power charge and 53-47 on the obstruction charge, the Senate fell far short of the two-thirds majority needed to convict and remove the president. Swing-vote Republican senators—including Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Susan Collins of Maine, and Lamar Alexander of Tennessee—voted to acquit on both counts.

Also ahead of the vote, Republican and Democratic leaders addressed the Senate. McConnell warned of “truly dangerous” Democratic partisans, saying they insist on taking down institutions that do not produce the outcomes they desire.

“This partisan impeachment will end today,” McConnell said. “But, I fear the threat to our institutions may not. Normally, when a party loses an election, it accepts defeat. ... But not this time.”

Instead, McConnell went on, top Democrats—including Hillary Clinton and Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif.—have already preemptively challenged the validity of the 2020 presidential election, and blamed their loss on unsubstantiated claims that the president’s campaign colluded with Russians.

Minutes earlier, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., slammed the Senate trial as a “kangaroo court” and a “sham.”

Romney is a McCain level douchebag. Hope he gets primaried out ASAP. He’s an intractable Democrat, just like the rest of them. Vote them all the Hell out of office.

And don’t think for a minute this is the end of their temper tantrum. Oh Hella No.

Is it reprisal time yet?

and the Dems go nuts last night and the morning after

It just goes on and on. The incoherent rabid hatred of our President from the lunatic Left never ends.

Several unhinged Dems “stormed” out of the speech last night, including Rancid tLabia because Trump’s message of unity, exceptionalism, economic prosperity, national security, hope for the future, etc was just “so fake”. Seriously.

AOC couldn’t even bring herself to go, boycotting the event but apparently watching every second of it. She’s having a tizzy over Rush getting the Medal of Freedom, saying how that cheapens this high honor. Granted, President Trump could have bestowed it at a separate ceremony, but doing it during the SOTU forced every media outlet to show it, instead of burying on page 87 and pretending it didn’t happen. But regarding cheapening the thing, how convenient that she seems to have forgotten that Obama awarded one to Joe Biden for ... being Joe Biden. Worse, Obama gave him the award “with distinction” which is an even higher level of honor.  Creepy Uncle Joe was so overcome with emotion at the time that the truth came out by accident, as he repeatedly said he didn’t deserve the medal.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., slammed Rush Limbaugh, who was recently was diagnosed with cancer, as a “racist” on social media late Tuesday, saying he “cheapens” the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

AOC didn’t attend President Trump’s State of the Union address, claiming it would have legitimized what she saw as lawless conduct under his administration. But she offered her thoughts on Limbaugh receiving the honor to her 4.2 million Instagram followers with a streaming video.

“First of all, the Presidential Medal of Freedom is an extraordinarily sacred award. We’re talking about putting someone on the same level as Rosa Parks, for example, in terms of their contributions to American progress,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Rush Limbaugh is a violent racist.”
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Rush Limbaugh “is a violent racist” and “cheapens” the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Rush Limbaugh “is a violent racist” and “cheapens” the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

“To do it in the middle of a State of the Union, and not even dignify it with its own ceremony, as it has, there is all sorts of norms that are being violated,” she said. “Not just for people’s humanity but also, it truly just cheapens the value of it.”

Meathead and other Hollywood idiots are shooting their moronic mouths off today too. They aren’t worth quoting or linking to.

And a large part of normal America is utterly aghast at Speaker Pelosi’s petulant act of tearing up her copy of the speech, which could have been the one delivered to her as tradition demands for the Congressional Record. Contemptuous bitch.

Not that she was alone in her classless disruptive behavior last night. Fred Guttenberg, anti-2A zealot got himself tossed from the event, and the Witches In White tried to start up something at one point, each waving 3 raised fingers, but the President talked right over them and they quickly shut down. I gather this was in support of “the Elijah Cummings Bill” HR3, which is supposed to address the high cost of prescription drugs in the country ... drugs perhaps covered by ObamaCare, or President Bush’s prescription drug plan? Or perhaps falling under President Trump’s mention of his push for lower drug costs? Seems like a meaningless disruptive act to me, when the President is already behind the idea.

When President Donald Trump called on Congress during his State of the Union speech to send him legislation to lower prescription drug prices, House Democrats had a ready response.

The President was highlighting his work taking on “big pharmaceutical companies.” He said his administration approved a record number of affordable generic drugs and the FDA was approving new medicines faster than ever before. Trump also said the cost of prescription drugs decreased for the first time in 51 years.

It was when Trump asked for bipartisan support for lowering drug prices that the Democrats stood up in protest.

“I am calling for bipartisan legislation that achieves the goal of dramatically lowering prescription drug prices, Trump said. “Get a bill to my desk, and I will sign it into law without delay.”

Democrats got on their feet, raised three fingers and chanted “H.R. 3! H.R. 3!” referring to the late Rep. Elijah Cummings bill on drug pricing. Many democrats also yelled “You lie!” The bill was passed by the House in December on a largely party-line vote, but has remained untouched in the Republican-controlled Senate.

So the President, acting in a bipartisan way in support of the American people, calls on the Republican controlled Senate to urge this bill on, yet the Democrats felt the need to protest that, yelling out that he was a liar for supporting their own bill. You can’t win with these idiots.
Granted, having the federal government “negotiate” with Big Pharma [ “nice corporation you’ve got here, would be a shame if anything happened to it” ] strikes of fascism, being antithetical to the whole concept of free market captialism ... another thing the Left is against.

SOTU Homerun

President Trump delivered the greatest State Of The Union address tonight that I’ve even seen. Out of the ballpark grand slam, while Nazi Pelousy sat behind him sucking lemons, dramatically ripping her copy of the speech in half at the end.

“You attack our citizens, you forfeit your life. “ Oh F//// Yeah!!!

And the bitter partisan Dems, sitting there in their idiotic Handmaiden white suits, wouldn’t applaud a single pro-American statement. Not even for the little black girl from Philly who Trump found a scholarship for so she wouldn’t lose out because the fools in PA did education cutbacks and she got wait-listed. They wouldn’t even clap for God. They suck.


And of course, Melania looked perfect.

More Deep State Connections

So John Bolton’s new book is all up in the news. He submitted it to the NSC for clearance, and what a surprise, somehow some of the content got leaked to the New York Times.

How on earth did that happen? Golly, who would have EVER thought that there’d be yet another anti-Trump coup member at that honorable and sacrosanct institution?

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman’s identical twin brother Army Lt. Col. Yevgeny Vindman, a senior ethics lawyer for the NatSec Council is in charge of reviewing book approvals, according to sources who spoke to Breitbart News.

Recall, Alexander Vindman, who leaked Trump’s call to the whistleblower because he disagreed with Trump’s foreign policy, showed up to testify in the House hearings against Trump in his uniform.

Vindman testified that his twin brother witnessed Trump officials move the transcript of Trump’s call to Zelensky to a top-secret server.

Barack Obama also used this same top-secret server to secure transcripts of his calls to foreign leaders and nobody cared. It’s only a scandal when Trump does it.

Anonymous sources conveniently leaked to the New York Times claiming former National Security Advisor John Bolton’s book manuscript accused President Trump of tying Ukraine aid to Biden investigations.

Bolton’s team pushed back in a statement Sunday night and said, “It is clear, regrettably, from The New York Times article published today that the prepublication review process has been corrupted.”

Bolton on Monday also denied coordinating with the New York Times.

Yeah. The thing about the Deep State Swamp: they’re all connected. Bolton didn’t have to coordinate with the NY Slimes. There are people who have people who will do that for him, wink wink, nudge nudge, nothing written down or even spoken out loud. It’s how the system works.

And if you buy that “regrettably ... the review process has been corrupted” BS, then I’ve got a bridge in Brooklyn you might like to purchase. This was planned and deliberate. I hope the era of plausible deniability will soon end. This was as accidental as an assassination.

I used to have the greatest respect and admiration for John Bolton, but it’s becoming apparent that he’s just another narcissistic petulant slug in the DC swamp.

Late Night Peach Mint

OMG, I tried watching that crap last night. Endless blather, with the Dems going on FOREVER, getting into hyper detail and lying like rugs when they’re were supposed to be explaining why they wanted to bring in a ton of new documents and witnesses, after the years of the Mueller investigation et al turned up nothing, and the months of the peach mint inquiry turned up nothing, and how their emergency rush to impeach President Trump on totally vacuous charges had to be done right this instant, but then set aside for several weeks so they could all go on vacation, and now Schiff, Schumer, and his hit squad of crazies want to change the rules in the Senate. My run-on sentence was nothing compared to their hours of obfuscations.

In the end, they got Mitch to bend a little, so they’ll get their witnesses but not at the start. Personally, I never would have allowed it. It’s not like they haven’t had years to research and gather everything under the sun. Run what you brung, or go home.

McConnell’s rules, which were eventually adopted in a 53-47 party-line vote at 1:40 a.m. ET Wednesday and largely mirror those from the Bill Clinton impeachment trial in 1999, permit new witnesses and documents to be considered only later on in the proceedings, after opening arguments are made.

Under McConnell’s final, adopted rules resolution, both the Democrats’ impeachment managers and Trump’s lawyers will now have three session days, totaling 24 hours, allocated to present their case.

McConnell’s original resolution had allowed 24 hours of arguments over only two days.

The vote on the Bolton amendment, like the roll call on Schumer’s previous failed quixotic proposals on the day, was not a final determination on any witness or document request, because McConnell’s proposal would allow new evidence to be considered later on in the process.

At 1:30 a.m. ET, Schumer introduced his last amendment to McConnell’s rules-- and he unexpectedly put Roberts back in the spotlight. The proposal would have allowed Roberts to decide the appropriateness of witnesses, which Republicans nixed because the Constitution affords the Senate the “sole” power over impeachment trials.

That last amendment was tabled by a 53-47 party-line vote, just like ten of Schumer’s other proposals.

Which shows me that this avalanche of garbage is entirely partisan. Well, duh. We knew that 3 years ago when they started crying for impeachment almost the moment the votes were tallied.

chips falling from the deep state resistance

Andrew Peek, NSC Senior Director, Escorted From White House Friday And Under Security Investigation

Trump in Davos for World Economic Forum with most of cabinet, but Mike Pompeo is not part of the group, although he was originally scheduled to be.

Andrew Peek had previously worked for General John Allen, who took over the Afghanistan theater after Patraeus left, but held the job for only a short time until sexual misconduct allegations forced his retirement.

General Allen was used by Obama to push his false narrative about defeating ISIS.  Allen spoke at the 2016 DNC convention in support of Hillary Clinton.

Impeachment Inquiry “witness” Andrew Vindman worked directly for Andrew Peek.

Peek got the NSC SD job with the approval of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien.

Sounds like Teh Resistanz planted a mole who got caught being naughty, and now the whole chain of them are having a time-out.

President Donald Trump’s top Russia expert on the National Security Counsel is reportedly on leave pending a security investigation.

Andrew Peek, the NSC’s senior director for European and Russian affairs, was escorted from the White House grounds on Friday, two people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg.

Peek had been in the NSC role for just two months, after most recently working as a deputy assistant secretary of state with responsibility for Iran and Iraq.

He replaced Tim Morrison, who left the position after testifying in the House impeachment inquiry. Morrison testified that the U.S. Ambassador to the EU, Gordon Sondland, had told him there was a quid pro quo in which U.S. aid to Ukraine was conditioned on the country’s government opening an investigation into Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

Morrison’s predecessor in the role, Fiona Hill, also testified as part of the impeachment inquiry.

Peek had been expected to attend the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland next week with Trump and other top aides.

However, he is currently on leave pending a security-related investigation

Peek previously served as a deputy assistant secretary of State for Iraq and Iran, and he was seen as an ally of Robert O’Brien, who took over as national security adviser from John Bolton in September.

Prior to joining the State Department, Peek served as a U.S. Army intelligence officer who worked under General John Allen in Afghanistan. He was also a national security adviser to Senator Gordon Smith, an Oregon Republican, and Senator Mike Johanns, a Nebraska Republican.

Andrew Peek coming from the stable of John Allen tells us everything we need to know about the ideology of Mr. Peek.  There’s no doubt in my mind that Andrew Peek is therefore an ideological member of the resistance similar to another NSC appointment, Alexander Vindman.

Keep in mind, National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien also comes from inside the Dept of State.  So whether Mike Pompeo and Robert O’Brien set-up Peek as a mole, or whether Peek’s activities were discovered without their foreknowledge is an open question.  However, I find it impossible to believe that NSA Robert O’Brien didn’t know the ideology of Peek prior to the appointment.


The bigger question is whether O’Brien and Pompeo will be the next to get the boot.

West Virginia Makes The Play

Dammit, I have to learn to write concisely. That last post took forever, for a really niche story that won’t interest many. Ok, so let’s keep this one short.

West Virginia Offers To Take All Of Virginia’s Second Amendment Sanctuary Counties

A huge “screw you” to the leftists in charge in Richmond.

It started in 1863. Because freedom. Actually, it started in 1775 but nobody paid them any attention.

A huge chunk of Virginia’s counties and their biggest city have now gone Second Amendment Sanctuary.

Last week West Virginia offered to take Fredrick County, half of which went over to West Virginia in 1863.

Virginia is for lovers, so West Virginia is reviving a 158-year-old proposal to ask one of its counties on a date. The answer, apparently, is still no.

The West Virginia Senate adopted a resolution by voice vote Monday to remind residents of Frederick County, Virginia, that the county has a standing invite — from 1862 — to become part of West Virginia. It now goes to the House of Delegates.

The resolution was introduced by Morgan County Republican Charles Trump, whose district borders Frederick County. Trump was born in Winchester, the seat of Frederick, which is Virginia’s northernmost county.

Now West Virginia has upped the ante, and has offered to take ALL the 2A counties.

In a display of pro-Second Amendment solidarity, a group of West Virginia lawmakers have introduced a resolution inviting Virginia counties frustrated by gun control efforts to switch states.

Delegates in the lower house of the West Virginia Legislature put the proposal forth on Tuesday. House Concurrent Resolution 8 would allow certain Virginia counties and independent cities to be admitted to West Virginia as constituent counties.

The group of 20 West Virginia Republicans, and one Independent, introducing the resolution said in the proposal that Virginia lawmakers have repudiated “the counsel of that tribune of liberty, Patrick Henry-who stated to the Virginia Ratifying Convention in 1788 that ‘The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun.’”

“[T]he government at Richmond now seeks to place intolerable restraints upon the rights guaranteed under the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution to the citizens of [Virginia,]” the proposal reads.

If it passes, the Virginia General Assembly would need to approve the resolution as well, and hold an election prior to August 1, 2020 allowing residents in Virginia counties to vote on whether they’d like to join West Virginia.

If this happens, WV will double or triple in size, get lots more electoral votes, take in most of the rural and white population of Virginia, and leave Olde Virginny being little more than a bedroom community around Washington DC.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of leftists.

There. Concise enough?

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
