Reporters

News4Jax in Florida is “reporting” that the Jacksonville Fire Department bought Level IIIA ballistic vests, with soft panels, that weigh…

139 POUNDS. 155 pounds with hard inserts.

This is the same station which reported that Senators “Crickets” Isakson and Perdue represent Florida (hint: nope).

That the sun would set earlier than usual.

That misplaced an active tornado by nearly ten miles. (That one worried me, because their track would have had it about a mile from me, and headed directly at me. Too bad about the folks who though they were safe… until they heard the freight train roar.)

And so much more.

NZ Manifesto

It took a while to find (most links were dead by the time I got to them), But I finally located the manifesto of the New Zealand asshole.

It’s a disjointed mess. Taken at face value, he’s a neo-nazi, Green, socialist isolationist.

If you heard he’s a Trump supporter, you can’t prove it by this document.

As a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose? Sure. As a policy maker and leader? Dear god no

In some ways, apart from the eco-socialist stuff, it’s as though he was checking off all the boxes to be a stereotype of how Antifa views anyone left of Lenin, particularly anyone they think is a Trump supporter. It reads like something Occasional-Cortex would produce if she was faking a “right-wing” manifesto of a person out to save the White Race from those terrible brown invaders.

Again, taken at face value, this could be the work of a greenweenie who finally snapped when he could no longer rationalize issues with uncontrolled immigration from shithole countries.

Or not.

Then there’s weird stuff like this, stuck right in the middle of his attempts to explain himself and what he wants:

I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words.

According all the reports I’ve seen, he’s Australian. No indication that he’s been to America, much less been a SEAl. I suspect he slipped that in just to see if anyone reads his little rant.

As best I can tell, chumbucket is just a racist fuck who decided he wanted to be famous (which he carefully and repeatedly says he doesn’t want. A lot.), and chose a place where they won’t execute his ass for mass murder.

Stop New Yorking my rights

This was particularly amusing to me, from a personal experience.

Hundreds turn out for hearing on Vt. gun control bill
Opponents, many dressed in the bright orange T-shirts emblazoned with the slogan “Stop New Yorking my Vermont Gun Rights!” said a waiting period requirement would block people who have an immediate need of self-defense from an opportunity to quickly purchase a firearm.

Some years back in New Hampshire, during one of the periods of Dimwitr control of the State House, a Dim entered a bill which would have banned possession of a firearm on any publicly controlled (not just owned) property. Buildings, parks, streets, sidewalks…

Yeah, that bad.

Come the day of the hearing, eight or nine hundred people showed up to voice their objection to the bill. I was one.

When it came time for statements from the public, one of the first (might have been the first) was the bill’s sponsor. Now, remember: this was New Hampshire, the “Live Free Or Die State.”

I shit you not, this damnfool woman stood at the mic and explained that we needed this law “to be more like New York,” where she came from.

Holy crap, I thought the Dimwit committee chairwoman was gonna break her gavel and destroy her vocal cords trying to silence the laughter, and travel recommendations.

Victim-disarmament aside, you’d think anyone with a vague recollection of history would know that getting New Hampshire to be New York ain’t happening.

Bump Stocks: An admission that “Acting” AG Whitaker’s signature wasn’t valid

Barr’s history on gun control makes this no great surprise.

New AG rubber stamps illegal bump stock rule change
Scheduled to be published on March 14th, newly appointed U.S. Attorney General William Barr will ratify a final rule from the ATF that determined bump stocks to be a “machine gun”.

This reaffirmation is in response to a federal lawsuit challenging then acting Attorney General Whitaker’s unconstitutional appointment to the position, who originally ratified the final rule.

Clearly, the government felt their defense of Whitaker’s validity was weak (which, having read the laws, I knew). They hope to walk into court and say, “That’s part’s moot Your Honor; the confirmed Attorney General signed it, too.”

But they just opened up another can of worms. Whitaker signed the rule on December 18, 2018. The rule — which the government just effectively admitted wasn’t valid — was officially published in the Federal Register on December 26.

Current possessors of bump-stock-type devices will have until the effective date of the rule (90 days from the date of publication in the Federal Register) to comply.

If Barr has to sign it again to shut down arguments over the validity, it has to be republished in the Register again, now that it has finally been “properly” signed.

And that resets the countdown clock.

So publish it, as now scheduled on March 14, 2019, and start the new 90 day countdown, with a new deadline of June 13, 2019. In accordance with the Administrative Procedures Act.

Made the news again

Got quoted fairly extensively in article about next month’s GPS rollover.

GPS Flaw: Security Expert Says He Won’t Fly April 6
UPDATE: Carl “Bear” Bussjaeger, a New Hampshire-based science-fiction writer, Air Force veteran and former telecommunications network technician, reached out to us via Twitter to say that the link between GPS timing and telecom networks is not direct.

“Networks don’t time off GPS,” Bussjaeger said in a tweet. “They time off internal/master station clocks. Those clocks periodically synchronize off GPS.”

Read more…

I got six paragraphs.

Of course, now that I’ve said that, the rollover will turn out to be a global catastrophe after all. [grin]

Democrats enabling election fraud since…

Well, since there have been Democrats.

This time we have H.R.1 – For Fuck the People Act of 2019.

To expand Americans’ access to the ballot box, reduce the influence of big money in politics, and strengthen ethics rules for public servants, and for other purposes.

It passed the House today. GovTrack says it has an 88% chance of being enacted. If it is, there is absolutely no reason for anyone but a Democrat to ever vote again.

Forget debates over the morality of voting, or whether there’s a candidate who represents your views, or if you can trust a pol to keep his promises. There will simply be no point in voting because Democrat voters will greatly outnumber everyone else.

H.R. 1 essentially legalizes fraud.

I’ve been very busy other issues, so while I expected this to be bad, I hadn’t checked on how bad until I heard the House passed it.

Honestly, I still haven’t read all of it. I’m not going to. I started with the voter registration stuff, realized how fucked we are, and stopped. When you’ve got that terminal cancer diagnosis with a few months to live, there’s not a lot of point in getting a dental checkup.

First, we’re going to have Internet registration. If we’re lucky, most new voters will be Russian Bots, and not the Chinese ones. If you can’t figure out how to submit a signature (which in theory would be matched to your signature when casting a ballot — tricky that, since one option is an “electronic signature” online), no problem Just give ’em one when you show up to vote.

Then there’s the automatic registration. Every agency with a list of people will submit those records to the state’s voter registration office. If the folks are deemed “eligible,” they’ll be informed by mail. Unless the potential voter affirmatively declines to be registered — you have to tell them not to — they get registered.

The problem with that… Pretend you’re Chicago. You have an agency that tracks deaths. Agency submits records. Registration office informs dead voter. Dead voter neglects to reply. Registered! Being Chicago, the only difference is that now it’s legal.

Or maybe it’s a welfare office. Which serves, among others, noncitizen resident aliens. Or, in some states, illegal aliens.

Or driver licenses for illegals, or “city ID cards” like NYC’s.

Folks who aren’t in the system, but want to vote, can register manually; in person or online. Let’s say they’re part of Stacey Abrams’ voting bloc. They can’t fill out the complete form because they don’t when “they” (for which read, “the person they’re pretending to be”) were born, or where they live. Never again will Abrams need to sue to get them counted. So long as the application is “substantially complete,” it’s close enough for government work.

Legalized voter fraud.

Guess who else gets to register: sixteen year-olds. Yes, dumbass high school students, who think limiting magazine to ten rounds would have prevented the Parkland shooting, get to register, too.

On the bright side, the bill allows for purging voter rolls (he said sarcastically). With a hell of a “but.”

No purging a voter who never voted.

No purging within 6 months of an election.

Want to purge someone who’s registered to vote in another state. You can do that. IF and only if the records in both states match perfectly: Exact spelling of the first name, middle name (in full), last name, and last four digits of the SSAN.

One state doesn’t record SSAN? Sorry; record doesn’t match, so you can’t purge. Ditto if one state didn’t list the middle name, or only used the initial. This will be very popular with the Masshole students of the University of North Massachuestts New Hampshire, who go to the NH polls in the morning, then jam the southbound interstate to vote in Mass. En mass.

Given the weasels in the Senate, this is probably going to pass. And that will enable the Crazocracy, which leaves the sane and honest folk with no options but a perpetual hunting season.

No wonder the corrupt scum infesting DC want us disarmed.
