Yesterday was a very good day. American Greatness (AG) ran that post I wrote on the possibility of a multi-ethnic country preserving American constitutional freedoms. And on top of that, Whatfinger linked to both the AG article and the post about it that I put up on OCF. That drove a large amount of web traffic to OCF and to AG. And the comments at both sites were very lively. The AG commenters were a mixture of dissidents, conservatives and even a couple of progressives who took a lot of flak. I think the discussion was interesting. And I hope it pointed some new readers in our direction. After all every website needs some new blood to make up for attrition. By my accounting I only need 9,997,000 more readers to reach my goal of domination over the right-wing blogosphere. But Rome wasn’t built in a day. I’ll bide my time.
All the heat will be on McCarthy going into the budget wars. We will hear the media declare him a monster who wants to destroy the United States by defaulting on the US debts. I’m very interested in seeing how much courage he can muster in the face of the attacks coming his way. I wonder if he will replace Trump as the new Hitler. It’s probably inevitable. The upside is that Biden may actually stroke out during one of his demented harangues. If he does it on live tv that would be wonderful theater.
But I haven’t figured out if Biden randomly dropping dead is better or worse for the Democrats’ succession plan. Think of it. Harris becomes president. That level of stupid controlling the most powerful country on the planet might drive us to the singularity we’re always hearing about. Starting at the point where she tries to repeat the oath of office, the White House could be sucked into a black hole of negative intelligence followed by the rest of the solar system. Alpha Centauri should be relatively safe.
I wonder what that would be like. After we each crash through the event horizon would our quarks meld into Harris’ and would our essence then become as stupid as she is through quantum entanglement? It’s too frightening to consider. Or would our consciousness remain distinct but trapped for the rest of the life of the universe with someone endlessly spewing out drivel about a little girl sitting on a school bus. That’s pretty close to hell.
But I digress, as usual.
We’ve run out of Chinese balloons but there’s no shortage of Russian artillery. It appears that the long anticipated Russian offensive in the Donbass is beginning. First up is a town called Bakhmut which over the last few weeks has been very gradually encircled. Real information is hard to find but apparently even the Ukrainians are beginning to prepare their side to the eventuality of Bakhmut’s capture by the Russians. After that it looks like more consolidation and then the next encirclement, probably Siver’sk. Boy, these Slavic placenames are difficult to figure. And I noticed several towns close to each other with the same name. That can’t be right. There must be some modifiers to allow the locals to distinguish between these places. Anyway, it looks like the pace is picking up in this slow-motion war. More misery.
Well, that’s enough for now. Let’s see what’s the next big thing this week. Have a good night.
