The Media Is Treating Cheney Like a Fallen Hero

The lament begins. (Wailing and gnashing of teeth? Probably not that bad.) Rep. Liz Cheney loses her primary in Wyoming to Trump-backed challenger

The media always loves a Republican loser. They love them better when they lose to Democrats, but they take what they can get.

Cheney was first elected to the House seat her father once held in 2016, and she was immediately tagged a rising star because of her background — both her father’s legacy and her experience as a senior State Department official — and her ability to deliver political messages forcefully and succinctly.

If it was any deeper, I would need hip waders just to read the article. And this is not the worst of the few I glanced at.

Of course they love her. She hates Trump, and that is enough for now. They would eventually come to hate her as much as they loathed her father, but that won't come to pass.

There is more about how the impeachment vote and January 6 are not playing well to actual Republicans.

This wasn't hard to predict, and several - many - people did. The Other McCain has some info on what it means going forward. R.I.P., Republican Establishment

Click thru for most of it, but this observation sums up why she lost fairly well.

How strange was it that Liz Cheney, allegedly representing Wyoming in Congress, should be anti-Trump, when no state in the Union gave a greater share of its vote to Trump in 2020 than Wyoming, where Trump came within a statistical eyelash of getting 70% of the vote. In essence, Liz Cheney has been waging war on her own state’s voters.

Personally I expect to see her move to a different state, and then move to a different party saying something about not being welcome in the party of Trump, and then the media will love her even more.

Dark Eyes

Guitarists known mostly as Country Music guys don't get much love. Especially if they were also all around entertainers. I'm not sure that was the case with today's artist, but he was an amazing guitar player.

A lot of Chet Atkins' music is drawn from various genres. Jazz, Dixieland (he recorded a version of St. Louis Blues), and Spanish. He is known mostly as a Country Music player (at least in my opinion) because he doesn't use effects or distortion of any kind. The sound is what the guitar produces. Well, some of it does sound like there is a bit of delay or reverb, and some of it sounds like there is a preamp in the effects chain, but it is not over-driving anything. It is a very clean sound, which is what Country Music players of the 1950s, 60s and 70s were going for.

"Ochi Chornya" is a traditional Russian romance song. Chet Atkins made it his own. Aside from this version, he also performed it live on at least one television show. (That performance is on YT if you're interested.)

This song is "Ochi Chornya" (Dark Eyes) by Chet Atkins. I'm fairly certain that this recording was made in 1955 for the album Chet Atkins in Three Dimensions, but I do know it was included in the 2007 compilation album Eclectic Guitar.

Tuesday Links

A somewhat abbreviated Links post today, in part because every once in a while real life sucks, and then Blogger decides to put a cherry on top of the sundae that is my life, by complaining about links from 15 years ago. It could be a troll, looking to cause trouble, but that only works if Blogger/Google is willing to be the village idiot, and play along. (I referenced one such post/complaint in a post yesterday, but it was not the only one Google decided was a problem. Ain't technology wonderful?)

The Other McCain is up first with It Started With Darwinism. Moved on to other spheres, like Climate Change and COVID-19.

A law professor at Berkeley, Johnson was also the author of Darwin on Trial, and once remarked, “Something about the Darwinists’ rhetorical style made me think they had something to hide.” This is something any intelligent person must eventually notice. The advocates of coincidence as the explanation of everything become rather skittish when confronted by the most obvious arguments against their theory, and tend to resort to name-calling and censorship to discredit or silence their critics.

How Would You Respond to a Bear in Your Home?

I would hope to be armed. 'I saw the bear about 10 feet away and I shot it': Man kills bear that entered his Steamboat Springs home - CBS Colorado

It happened around 2 a.m. Saturday on the north side of the city. Colorado Parks and Wildlife said the near 400-pound bear entered the home through an unlocked door with a lever handle. The bear found dog food, and the commotion of his unwelcome visit woke one of the homeowners.

The wife screamed when she saw the bear in her home. That got the husband's attention.

The husband saw the bear 10 feet away from the bedroom door, and started shoot with a .40 caliber semi-automatic pistol.

At about 5 or 6 feet the bear changed direction and crashed through a banister on the stairs.

"That is within their legal rights to do that if they feel threatened by the bear," Gonzales said of the homeowner's actions.

Gonzales told CBS News Colorado there is no indication the large bear had been in homes before, but all bears are looking for food to fatten up for winter.

I'm guessing that the statement above is the answer to a brain-dead question from some "Professional Journalist." Does the homeowner have the duty to die, since he doesn't have a hunting license, or something?"

The ease of opening doors with lever handles are a problem in physical security, but this was the first time I've heard of a bear using one.

So what would you do if you found a bear in your home?

Apple AirTag - The Ultimate Stalker Tool

Hide one in your victim's car, and you can follow their every move. Jealous boyfriend, who planted a secret Apple AirTag on his ex-lover's car, is jailed for nine weeks | Daily Mail Online

$30 a piece or 4 for $99. The ability to stalk your prey: Priceless.

A jealous ex-boyfriend has been jailed for nine weeks for stalking after planting a covert Apple AirTag tracker on his ex-girlfriend's car.

Christopher Paul Trotman, 41, harassed his ex with constant phone calls and questions, before ordering an AirTag on Amazon and glueing it to her rear bumper to track her every move, a court heard.

Apple knows that this tech is subject to abuse, but apparently doesn't care.

At first he said, 'This is a joke,' before finally admitting: 'I did track her. I still love her.'

He was interviewed and released on bail but later arrested again over allegations of witness intimidation and remanded into custody.

Because nothing says "I love you" like obsessive, controlling behavior.

And 9 weeks is really only going to piss this guy off. It is at this point I usually recommend that victims of this kind of insanity should consider opting for a firearm, a case of ammo, and some training. And a concealed carry permit if such is available in your state. Or required. Constitutional Carry is a thing in Ohio and in a lot of states. But this case is from the UK, so self-defense is not an option. This woman is at the mercy of this asshole and the ability of the police to keep him in line. So, in other words, she's SOL.

If you have an iPhone it should notify you of AirTags that are in your vicinity. If you have an Android phone there are apps you can install that will check for AirTags in your location. Don't ignore this tech if you think you might have someone in your life who qualifies as a stalker.

This is only the most accessible of the tech for tracking cars and people. And its cheap.

Dating in the Feminist Dystopia

I'm not sure why The Other McCain is writing about modern dating, but it is fascinating. Are ‘Higher Standards’ Really to Blame?

He has takes on some things I agree with, and some things I don't. I don't think he acknowledges the pressure from society to NOT form permanent relationships, but then maybe I saw too much of it.

He has advice for young people that I do mostly agree with, and more. I will only quote one of the later things he brings up, the Feminist Take on the dating scene.

If her [Kylie Cheung] goal in life is to be permanently alone, her social-media message is perfect, because I can’t imagine any guy wanting to get with a girl whose Instagram page is so crammed full of Controversial Feminist Hot Takes, interspersed with Gaze-Upon-My-Half-Naked-Body Selfies. Honestly, Miss Cheung, has your mother seen your account? If so, is she more or less resigned to the fact she’ll never have grandchildren?

That a woman would deport herself online in this manner, while simultaneously gloating about “lonely, single men” who “need to fix everything about themselves or die alone,” displays a lack of self-awareness that is truly astonishing. But this just shows what Professor Reynolds said, i.e., “rule number one in articles about dating and relationships is that men are always the problem.” No matter how hopeless a basket case a woman may be — and Kylie Cheung is a complete mess — she is nevertheless assumed to possess an unquestioned authority to expound upon what’s wrong with men.

But then he also brings up the example of Amber Herd:

Indulge me in another digression: One may be entirely sympathetic to victims of domestic abuse while, at the same time, recognizing Amber Heard as a certain type of woman who specializes in wrecking the life of any man foolish enough to fall in love with her. When a woman is so physically attractive, most men are apt to overlook the signs that she’s a destructive psychopath, in the Danger Zone of the “Hot/Crazy Matrix.”

Amber Heard is selfish, dishonest and cruel, and is shrewd enough to manipulate the gullible “feminists” who want to view her as a heroic victim, a symbolic martyr to “misogyny” — in quite the same way as she manipulated Johnny Depp into seeing her as “wife material,” a mistake that poor fool must eternally regret.

Anyway, go read the whole thing.

The End of the Archives 1.0

Google/Blogger have decided to be idiots.

They have decided to make my life difficult because websites I linked to 15 years ago are no longer what I linked to.

Why was your blog post unpublished?

Your content has violated our Malware and Viruses policy. Please visit our Community Guidelines page linked in this email to learn more.

"My content" is a link to another website in a post from 2006.

Color me shocked that links are broken from 15 years ago.

Now it could be a troll looking through old posts, hoping to stir up trouble. Because that is what trolls do.

Anyway I have had to remove access to the Archives 1.0, at least for the time being. Because I don't have time to scrub links going back to 2004 or so.

One

I usually think of Metallica as Thrash, which is not really my thing. But not all of their songs are Thrash, though this has a bit of that in part of the guitars, but a lot of the song sounds more like Prog, or Progressive Metal to me.

Here is a link to the lyrics.

This song is "One" by Metallica from the 1988 album ...And Justice for All.

Anne Heche and Narcotics

Twitter is flowing over with support for Heche's family, and I guess I get that. However... Anne Heche had narcotics in her blood after car crash, police say.

Twitter is awash in stories and posts about Ann Heche. I can't tell if they are coming my way because people loved her acting or because Twitter knows I'm a lesbian. It could be either way, the way Twitter has been screwing with the algorithm lately.

So lots of love for an actress who crashed into a house with "cocaine in her system" and fentanyl - though that may have been prescribed by the hospital - in her system. Not one word for the family of the home she destroyed. I guess because none of them were ever married to Ellen D. their lives and home mean nothing to the press.

Look, I get that it is a tragedy for her family, and even for her ex. But the press is surprised that she didn't have alcohol in her system because she did have alcohol in her car. (Am I the only person flashing on "Rehab" by Any Winehouse?)

The Other McCain also has something good to say: The Tragedy of Anne Heche.

He has info from the press on how her relationship with Ellen DeGeneres impacted her career, if you're interested. But I agree with his final statement.

Just for the record, I don’t approve of cocaine or fentanyl, either, and if any dopeheads feel stigmatized because of my disapproval, tough luck.

If someone on the right died by crashing their car into a home while high on drugs, the media and Twitter would be laughing, not feeling bad for the family. But if it weren't for double standards, the Left would have no standards at all.

He Is Not Husband-of-the-Year Material

The gun-hating part of the Left loves to go on at length about how if you own a gun, you are statistically more likely to shoot someone you know. There is a very good reason for that. Woman shot husband in self-defense, Jessup police say

Aug. 12—A Jessup woman acted in self-defense when she shot her husband in the leg early Friday morning, Police Chief Joseph Walsh said.

Police charged her husband, Eric Stepkovitch, with simple assault and harassment because police alleged he slammed Katherine Groboski to the ground and repeatedly banged her head against the floor of their home, according to a criminal complaint filed by Officer Scott Syryla.

When he was banging her head on the floor, she drew a pistol. She ended up shooting him twice in the leg.

After he got shot, the police showed up and had the paramedics take him to a hospital. (They took her as well, since she had bruises on her head and ribs from the assault.) After the doctors saw to his leg, he was arrested.

But since this is a domestic-violence case, I don't expect that the system will do much. He is only being held in jail in lieu of $10,000 bail. At least she already has a gun for defense.

Self-defense is a human-right, even it you must defend yourself from someone you know.

Amazon Prefers Dead Delivery Drivers to Legal Self-defense

It is another reason I try to avoid buying stuff from Amazon. Amazon driver recalls firing in self-defense at Middletown man with knife

Gino Grove was working his delivery route when he was approached by a guy with a knife. Well, the guy was running "full speed" at him with a knife, while yelling "Knife fight! Knife fight!" I think that qualifies as a threat.

Grove says he shot Roberts in the leg and Roberts barely reacted.

“I’m like, ‘Oh my goodness, this did not work on this man,’” Grove said. “He has a knife in his hand. I’m about to get gutted out here.”

So in order to see his family again, he shot the guy again.

“I had to fend for my life at that moment, because that guy was attacking me with a knife,” he said. “He came at me with a knife. If I didn’t have my firearm, I would not be here today. I know that for a fact. I would not be here today. My family would be planning my funeral.”

After being shot again, Christopher Roberts ran from the scene. Cops picked him up and took him to a local hospital. Roberts walked out of the hospital. Cops found him again and took him to a different hospital.

Roberts is facing charges of felony assualt. Grove is not facing charges, because Ohio is not New Jersey, and self-defense is a human-right.

As for Amazon and their preference for dead delivery personnel over live people who can defend themselves...

Grove says he has been deactivated as a driver by Amazon and, as of now, is unsure where his employment stands as a delivery driver.

This is also true of Uber, Lyft, and several of the large, national pizza chains. Self-defense is bad PR. A dead delivery driver is a chance to say that their "thoughts and prayers" go out to the grieving families. Or something.

This is truly a case of Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.

Self-defense and the AR-15 — Historical Edition

You could say they suffered from a failure of the victim-selection process. 15-Year-Old Hero Used an AR-15 to Protect His 12-Year-Old Sister from 2 Punk Burglars

Two miscreants, one 17-years-old and one 16-years-old, decided to break into a home where a 15-year-old was home with his sister.

For reasons I can't understand, this 10-year-old story is making the rounds. But who am I to swim against the tide of social media? Though the linked article is from the 11th.

Of the famous and infamous firearms in American history, such as the Thompson submachine gun of the early 20th century, the Colt Peacemaker of the Old West or the “Brown Bess” musket of the Revolutionary War era, none have been so maligned by the mainstream media and anti-Second Amendment politicians as the Armalite Rifle model 15, or AR-15.

I suppose that it why it is making the rounds.

This story is about the then-15-year-old son of a Harris County, Texas, deputy who was home alone with his 12-year-old sister in northwest Harris County at about 2:30 p.m. on June 29, 2010.

Two burglars smashed their way through a window after trying the front and back doors according to KHOU-TV.

The young man knew exactly where to find his father’s AR-15 style rifle and he knew exactly how to use it as well. Armed with that weapon and his father’s instruction, the 15-year-old with adrenaline coursing through his veins was able to fire the shots that protected both children that day.

There is more, that is worth your time. The insane things that Democrats and others have to say about the AR-15. Things that are so far from the truth to be laughable, except of course that people believe those lies.

3D Printed Guns in Spain

The original article is in Spanish. This like will take you to the Google Translate version, so the language isn't perfect. This is how a 3D printing weapons manufacturing workshop worked

Agents of the National Police have arrested, in the province of A Coruña, a person for his alleged participation in the crimes of manufacturing and illicit possession of weapons. In the two searches carried out, an AR9 submachine gun assembled with 3D printed parts has been intervened , practically finished, along with other parts of short arms also printed, prohibited weapons and a total of three printers. At the moment in Ceuta nothing similar has ever been detected.

Though the technology works better if you open the original link (below) in Chrome and have the browser do the translation. The language isn't better; your ability to do things like select and copy text works, and is not blocked.

The hat tip goes to Impro Guns: 3D printed gun bust in Spain who has all the photos. The guns are looking pretty good these days. Steel tubes for barrels. 3-D printed parts including what looks like a Glock style magazine for a 9mm firearm.

Here is that link to the original article.

Self-defense Stops Mass Shooting

It would be Florida Man who threatened to shoot the crowd. Person threatens to 'shoot the crowd up', shot and killed by a bystander

An argument between two people escalated into a brawl involving 20. And I bet you thought your family gatherings were off the hook.

So one genius had the idea to go get a short-barreled shotgun out of his car and threaten to "shoot up" the crowd.

The police department says the 22-year-old refused to drop their weapon after multiple people confronted them, that's when the 32-year-old man, fired his weapon, hitting the armed suspect. The man had a Concealed Weapon License and remained on the scene with police to cooperate with the investigation.

No charges have been brought against the shooter because this happened in Florida, and not in Manhattan.

Self-defense is a human-right. (Hat tip to Keep and Bear Arms.)

Europe and the Religion of Environmentalism

Dare I call it Gaia worship? Europe Is Paying the Price for Embracing Environmentalism With Religious Fervor — and It's a Lesson the U.S. Can Stand to Learn

Earlier this year, Canadian scientist and writer Martin Grünn put it this way: “Environmentalism has seeped into nearly every nook and cranny of day-to-day life in the developed world… Compliance is expected, with laggards publicly shamed and/or faced with activist onslaughts.”

But Europe is beginning to reap the consequences of the green embrace, and it doesn’t look appealing. The combination of this enviro-religious fervor and the energy shortages that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine have brought about has created dystopic conditions and dire predictions for Europeans.

Spain put limits on air conditioning. The German city of Hanover issued a ban on hot water and central heating in all public buildings

The future doesn’t bode well for Europeans either. The government of the UK, already dealing with an acrimonious leadership contest among the ruling Conservative party, has developed an emergency plan for an energy worst-case scenario that includes potential blackouts in January.

Unreliable electric service is a sign you are in a third-world country. Modern civilization is based on the availability of energy. From the electric light to the internet, to credit card transactions and cellphone calls, everything in modern life is dependent on electricity.

And while short outages are annoying. What would you do if electricity failed for a week, and your refrigeration stopped preserving food? Most gas ovens today require electric power, though you can usually light the burner with a match or lighter. What would you do if the municipal water supply failed? Yes, they are dependent on electric pumps. Other things dependent on electricity - gas station pumps, 911 centers, etc. Most will have facilities to get by for a short period, but not extended outages.

Massachusetts Gun Sales at Record Levels

I hope they also get training. Gun sales in deep blue Massachusetts hit record levels beginning in 2020, sparked by fear: Report | Fox News

The WBUR analysis published Wednesday found gun dealers in the state sold nearly 276,000 firearms from 2020 through 2021, with the majority of sales being handguns, at 64%, while 23% of the sales were for rifles.

There is a lot of room for growth, as Massachusetts is tied with New Jersey for the lowest percentage of households owning at least 1 firearm.

Massachusetts gun sales overall in 2021 were up 57% from 2019 and doubled that year compared to 10 years ago, WBUR found.

They also cover some of the national trends.

The national surge in gun sales in 2020 was also partially driven by first-time gun owners, including women and minorities. Leary reported similar findings, saying women and minorities are more frequently visiting the shop and added that even his middle school lunch lady made a visit.

Overall it is a good article. They talk of crime, and police response times. They interview gun store owners, and one person who owns a firearm in Deep Blue Mass.

Nicholas John Roske

The Other McCain brings us another episode in the continuing saga of Crazy People Are Dangerous

You may have forgotten Nicholas John Roske, or perhaps you never knew the name of the 26-year-old California man arrested for his failed plan to assassinate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. I hadn’t paid much attention myself until I saw a “Dispatches From Weimar America” item by Ed Driscoll at Instapundit, linking to this bizarre headline.

Well, you need to click that link to see the bizarre. And it is.
