My two cents worth to the 2%. Never stabbed, never tested. I was in the fortunate position that I was not going to starve or be kicked out of my house. I feel for the people that were forced to have the stabs. “My body, My Choice”, only if you want to abort your child.

But I will NEVER forgive the @#$%&$# Police.

When challenged they respond that they can’t be touched as they are bi polar.

I got told the same about a kid with “hyper active” at school.

Also kids who claim to be bi polar who spend the day abusing the teachers yelling and throwing chairs.When challenged they respond that they can’t be touched as they are bi polar.

Surely the first step would be to require a medical certificate to that effect?

The kids have already identified so privacy isn’t an issue.

If certified, off to special school where extra resources are available.

This is the foreperson (sic), emily kohrs, of the Fulton County grand jury which indicted Trump. Fani fuking willis fought to have emily’s report kept from the public. Look at emily’s interview (there are many of them, the bitch loved her moment of fame) and you know why fani wanted what emily said kept from the public.

You look at the people who are prosecuting Trump and thy are, every one of them, the most corrupt, certifiable fukwits going around; but the msm is o blame because it sides with these lunatics.

Last August, the PRC shut down the export of 2 important rare earth metals used in semiconductor manufacture: gallium and germanium.

Ouch. Whatever will the west do?

American Rare Earths Inc announced that the reserves near Wheatland dramatically surpass the Asian nation’s 44 million metric tons, saying it ‘exceeded our wildest dreams’ after drilling only about 25 percent of the property.

The newly disclosed figure of 2.34 billion metric tons of rare earth minerals found southwest of Wheatland, Wyoming by American Rare Earths Inc. could dwarf in size the 1.2 million metric ton estimates in northeastern Wyoming that one of its competitors claimed was one of the biggest discoveries in the world.

“This exceeded our wildest dreams, and we only drilled on about 25% of the property,” said Donald Swartz, CEO of American Rare Earths.

Boom, as they say.

I keep thinking Neil Oliver can’t get any better. And he keeps surprising me. His latest is absolutely brilliant.

Neil Oliver:
On the aged in care homes during the covidocy (at least initially):

… dosed up on midazelam and morphine and hustled to the exit of life.

What if there was no deadly disease at all? … What if Covid was actually nothing new? Just more of the usual rebranded as something new? Given a scary new name. What if? What if all we got were not the consequences of a new disease, but the effects of the measures that were put in place … What if there was no pandemic at all, just a fiction, that enabled people with an agenda to take over the world? To erase freedom. To censure inconvenient truth. To demonise an awkward minority of people that [sic] wouldn’t comply?

Oliver is musing aloud, of course, and he mentions both The Great War and, briefly, Russia-Ukraine and the Klimate Krisis.

Though I’m extremely bitter about the past several years, and truly believe there is NO political party worth supporting (Why do WE support THEM by the way?), I’m also as yet unconvinced by the secret-cadre-of-puppeteers theory.

If you can understand Neil’s accent, he is definitely worth a watch, however.

But I will NEVER forgive the @#$%&$# Police.

Ditto, but my list is MUCH longer.
Apart from perhaps a handful of politicians, who were vilified and ignored by the FilthFilter, not one community organisation or institution that I can think of, raise even timid questions, let alone objections. Those whom, during ‘normal times’ claimed ‘I/we speak for such-and-such…’ simply vanished.

Name the organisation/institution … I have no respect for any of them now. NONE. They all metaphorically spat in my face and screamed ‘Rodent!!!!!’ so eff them all. I will grudgingly, with the greatest of difficulty (and resentment), interact with those individuals and organisations only if is vital for my interests. None of them, however, will receive my support – financial or otherwise – ever again.

I’ve learned that to hang onto hate and bitterness is damaging only to oneself, but I am absolutely committed to a detached, silent resentment towards the Legion of Covidiots who rejected me and others when we needed support the most.

They still roam free, deluded but pristine in their moral purity. I gaze with cold vengeance at their silhouettes.

China has 2363 coal plants and is building 1171 more, a total of 3536.

Australia is planning to shut down it’s six remaining coal power plants in order to save the world!

Chickenfeed.

Olympic Dam has 1% REE in their 8.8 billion tonnes of ore.

If BHP ever announced they were thinking of recovering the REE the price would immediately crater.

They don’t bother since it’s already one of the largest copper, uranium and gold mines in the world. I’ve seen the metallurgical reports though, it’d be easy to do: one extra process step on their U plant circuit.

In general terms I agree with you. I gave away the IPA because they carried on as usual and didn’t say a word about the tyranny we were being subjected to. However, they are now fighting against the “misinformation” bill and, despite the past, that is something worth supporting.

Big surprise.

Russia’s Alexei Navalny, a fierce anticorruption campaigner who galvanized the country’s political opposition, has died in prison, Russian news agencies reported Friday.

The cause of his death was still being established, said prison authorities, cited by Russian news agency TASS.

Navalny had been serving sentences in a penal colony amounting to more than 30 years on various charges. He was 47 years old.

At least he didn’t accidently fall out of a hotel terrace.
