Usual Response

When the Left wins elections (even through fraud), conservatives mutter darkly and go back to work.

When it’s conservatives (“right-wing”) who win elections, the Left goes all hair in fire, e.g.:

French police across the country have launched tear gas at furious activists protesting the far-Right’s massive gains in the European Union elections over the weekend.

Marine Le Pen’s hardline National Rally party won a sweeping victory on Sunday night, taking home 32% of the vote during the election, the first time the continent has voted since 2019.

Of course, the French are revolting (“Always have been, dear heart” murmurs Mr. Free Market) as their collective temper has a hair-trigger at the best of times.  Hell, I remember a time when the loss of an international rugby match got ten thousand angry Frogs parading around the Parc des Princes stadium, screaming “Demission au selecteurs!”

So it can hardly come as a surprise that the Frog Commies would be the first to lose their shit, just at the possibility that their “progressive” agenda may be interrupted by the will of the people.  (Note that it’s only a possibility;  I’ve read the National Rally’s manifesto and it sounds like something JFK’s Ted Sorenson might have written.)

It makes the prospect of a Trump electoral victory in November all the more inviting, dunnit?

Killer Drug

Why did I have to read about this incredible news in the ghastly Brit paper The Sun ?

An immunotherapy drug could spare bowel cancer patients the need for surgery and chemotherapy after results showed it was effective in 100 per cent of cases.

Jemperli, also called dostarlimab, showed “unprecedented results”, maker GSK said, with no evidence of disease in all patients treated.

Granted, it seems to work in just one form of bowel cancer (so far), but really?

I guess that US “newspapers” are too busy with more important news, like gloating over Trump’s specious conviction or Rupert Murdoch’s latest marriage.

Quote Of The Day

From SOTI:

What is white American culture?  According to the Smithsonian, white culture is characterized by individualism, hard work, objectivity, the nuclear family, progress, respect for authority, delayed gratification, and more.

“More”?  Allow me to expand on the above and/or add some more aspects of White American culture (note the caps) because those soft pinkos at the Smithsonian obviously have a problem doing so.

  • self-reliance
  • personal responsibility
  • religion, or at least firm adherence to Judeo-Christian principle
  • respect for our Western European cultural heritage and its institutions
  • clearly-defined masculine and feminine personae, and their respective roles
  • protection of self, family, the community and the nation against all enemies, foreign and domestic
  • reverence for the nation’s flag, and the principles for which it stands
  • belief in and support for the Founding Fathers and our nation’s founding principles as enumerated in the Constitution and Bill of Rights
  • deep suspicion of, or even hostility towards people and institutions who do not support, or actively try to subvert any of the above.

…and that’s just off the top of my head.  And by the way, all the above are precisely why I left the country of my birth and became a U.S. citizen, a White American.

Changing The Playing Field

I have to say that I like this move:

Thirteen fed-up counties in liberal Oregon have voted in support of measures to start negotiations to secede from the state and join conservative Idaho.

The proposal seeks to move the Oregon border 200 miles to the west, meaning that 14 counties and several partial counties would fall under Idaho state lines.

Here’s what the redrawn boundaries would look like:

I have no idea how all this would work, but it sure beats back the tired old “If you don’t like it here, then leave”  trope, to be replaced with “Sure we’ll leave, but we’re going to take all that farmland and our tax dollars with us”.

Needless to say, the Washgov (not to mention the feddle gov) is going to fight against this tooth and nail.

Get to it, guys, and git ‘er done.

Getting Burned

Loyal Readers will remember this happy event:

Seems as though this Old Phartte popped his clogs at age 91, and decided that because his grandchildren had never bothered to visit him while he was in hospital, that they weren’t worthy of getting any of his loot once he was gone. So instead of cutting them out of his will, he left them each only a few bucks.

Needless to say, the grandchildren sued the estate, claiming that they were “entitled” to a third, rather than the 0.0001% thereof specified in his will.

Anyway, this group of ingrates lost their case, and a damn good thing it is too.  And for the record, they’re as ugly as they are greedy.

I know, I know:  you loved the outcome as much as I did.


Five granddaughters who were handed just £50 each of their grandfather’s £500,000 fortune because he was ‘hurt’ they never visited him have been ordered to pay £220,000 in court costs.

I love a story with a happy ending.  Especially when it comes to greedy assholes getting their comeuppance.  Like this lot:

Commonsense, Swedish Style

When even the Swedes come to realize it’s all bullshit:

Sweden is now looking to build more nuclear reactors after its parliament formally abandoned its 100% renewable energy target to meet net-zero by 2045.

On Tuesday the country modified its net zero targets to 100% “fossil-free” which its right-leaning government creates the conditions for the return of nuclear power to the country’s energy mix.

“We need more electricity production, we need clean electricity and we need a stable energy system,” Finance Minister Elisabeth Svantesson said in parliament.

Observers said the decision implicitly acknowledges the low quality of unstable wind and solar, and is part of a general collapse of confidence in the renewable energy agenda pioneered in the Nordic countries and in Germany.

Here’s the wake-up call:

“Living close to Russia focuses the mind, and the Swedish people not only wish to join NATO, but also to ground their economy in an energy source, nuclear, that is physically sound and secure, unlike renewables which are neither.”

I should point out that the vast majority of Sweden’s electricity generation comes from hydro-electric dams already, so calling converting the tiny fraction left into “fossil-free” generation is not only eminently doable, but largely irrelevant.

Also, a reminder from a little further south:

German energy giant RWE has begun dismantling a wind farm to make way for a further expansion of an open-pit lignite coal mine in the western region of North Rhine Westphalia.

I should point out that the above operation was okayed by Germany’s Green Party, surely the most eco-addled political party in Europe.

Guess that Russian gas pipeline closure hurt.
