We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

No morning links this week
For a number of good, non-serious reasons, I need a week-long sabbatical from morning links about all the the crazy stuff. Nobody seems to want to take over the duty.

Everyone deserves some "kick back" time.
Here's my contribution to pick up the slack:
New Biden Message: The Economy Is Doing Great, You Just Aren’t Noticing It Who you gonna believe? Me? or your lying eyes?
Sgt Mom on what has happened when citizens no longer believe that the administration of justice is fair and impartial.
BD,(and everyone else at MF) thanks for all you do. A week off won't hurt anyone, the same crazy news will continue.
Go ahead go with a mental cleanse.....wish our country could do the same; sigh
Scientists plan to feed primary school children crickets and mealworms to make the UK greener
Because they want you to eat bugs
The True Believers think eating bugs will help fight global warming.
This is their best chance to get the West to eat insects. Bully and brainwash the 5-8 year olds into eating bugs. If they can get them to accept insects at that age they have a chance to move humans away from eating meat. Eating insects has no appeal to anyone else. It has to be learned from an early age.
The emergence of the Congressional Pogrom Caucus
Jews are waking up to the anti-semitism in the democratic party.
Beto O’Rourke fabricates outrage over dead children for political relevance
He is indeed one sick sonofabitch.
As a teenager, Beto belonged to a group known as the Cult of the Dead Cow – often penning online fantasy blogs under the pseudonym ‘Psychedelic Warlord’. One particular post is exceptionally alarming, raising the biggest red flag of all:
Then one day, as I was driving home from work, I noticed two children crossing the street. They were happy, happy to be free from their troubles….
This happiness was mine by right. I had earned it in my dreams. As I neared the young ones, I put all my weight on my right foot, keeping the accelerator pedal on the floor until I heard the crashing of the two children on the hood, and then the sharp cry of pain from one of the two. I was so fascinated for a moment, that when I had stopped my vehicle, I just sat in a daze, sweet visions filling my head….
The more people I killed, the longer my dreams were….
My dreams grew longer and more vivid. They kept me alive and proved to be the only thing to live for. I had killed nearly 38 people by the time of my twenty-third birthday, and each one was more fulfilling than the last.
Beto’s ‘fantasies’ are demonic – and exhibitive of his moral bankruptcy. Democrat politicians so often point accusatory fingers at lawful gun-owners, suggesting they possess violent tendencies, but the truth is quite the opposite.
From Dr. Naomi Wolf...
Dear Friends, Sorry to Announce a Genocide
This coverup is serious. I'm not sure if it was all about political power or money or both but a lot of people lied and hid data while a lot of people died. We need a special prosecutor and a couple hundred arrested and charged.
Well, if the news (trial data, outcomes, etc.) was good, they wouldn't want to keep it sealed for 75 years, would they?
We are so screwed.
And I know I'm early on this one, but I'm also anti-monkeypox jab...
That depends on whether or not it 's the smallpox vaccine on offer.
Naomi Wold is the shoddy researcher from that pre-covid scandal about claiming that thousands of homosexuals were executed in England in the 1800s because she didn't understand the legal terms in the record. Originally a feminist writer, by 2012 even those sympathetic to her beliefs were shaking their heads at her unsubstantiated claims. She is now just a loon. In the linked essay, she is overdrawing conclusion right out of the gate and it doesn't get better.
She glides over the facts that the supposed child deaths by vaccine include car accidents, drug overdoses, and drownings. She wants you to think otherwise, and so doesn't mention it. Who knew that a vaccine could cause auto accidents, eh?
Some people are determined to believe the truth is always a dire secret that THEY aren't telling us. But who is actually covering up information here? Late-onset paranoid schizophrenia is far more common in women, for unknown reasons. I've known dozens, and she sounds similar.
It was ALL mandated for money, power, and control even though the politicians and the admin state insisted it was all about "public safety".
The Day the Electricity Died
The people of the upper Midwest will pay the price this summer. Their multi-state grid operator, MISO, has warned that it will be 5 GWs short of electricity this summer. California also could be up to5 GWs short, enough to power 1.3 million homes. Texas warned that there might not be enough electricity for last week’s unexpected 90° weather, or for hotter days coming this summer.
What do they all have in common? Increasing their reliance on solar and wind and closing coal plants. A dirty green secret is that coal is full-time power and wind and solar are not. Electric grids must have full-time, on-demand power all the time—plus some—or blackouts are guaranteed.
Hope you enjoy your time away and as always a big 'Thank You!' To the Farm Team for keeping us up to date. Saludos!
For 20 years now I have been telling MF that homosexuality is NOT GENETIC! In the past several months there has been the publication of several serious studies done calculating the expansion of the gay community.
Here is the link to Bill Maher's clear inquiry/explanation.
I recommend Greg Cochran's blog West Hunter on the topic (and others). He is a physicist turned anthropologist (and now mostly retired) who is quite fearless in looking at the research and following it to conclusions. You have likely encountered him in other controversies, though the name may not ring a bell at first.
He also has some top-drawer commenters whose names you might recognise in genetics and intelligence and violence research.

Michael Sussmann has been acquitted
It was a stacked jury:
TURLEY: “I mean, he is facing a jury that has three Clinton donors, an AOC donor, and a woman whose daughter is on the same sports team with Sussmann’s daughter. With the exception of randomly selecting people out of the DNC headquarters, you could not come up with a worse jury”
Conservative Tree House predicted the outcome. It was always Barrs goal to protect the institutions. If Sussmann is not guilty, then the FBI knew all along that the dossier was bogus, however, they were in Hillary's court along with Obama's court and had to cover all the illegal spying they did on Trump and company. CTH always predicted that Barr was the bondo and Durham was the spray paint. The admin state, FBI, CIA, DOJ, State Dept always knew it was bogus but had to keep Trump on the defensive until he was pushed out. So much for preserving the institutions.
But if you are a Republican:
Nebraska congressman found guilty of lying to FBI
The FBI has a long history of corruption going back to J. Edgar Hoover. I honestly don't think it can be fixed. In fact it is probably so corrupt and powerful that any attempt to fix it by presidents or congress would result in either outright assassination of those threatening them or political assassination and jail for trumped up charges. Congress needs to act in a massive overnight lockout and detention of FBI and follow up with a full scale forensic audit of FBI files and a special prosecutor to bring them to trial... Outside of DC, maybe in Iowa or Oklahoma where a fair jury could be seated.
Ditto for the CIA and our other security agencies.
Scientists plan to feed primary school children crickets and mealworms to make the UK greener: You "scientists" should each eat a quart or half-gallon of those crickets and meal worms in front of those kids...who will then say, "that's DIS-GUSTING!!!"
