It was a German colony.

Perhaps Aryanism is a thing in southern Africa.


:D

And they are sneaky too. Pretending to be a black guy in Africa until after the election. :A Banana Sad:

I thought he was last seen in Georgia disguised a a Jewish senator from New York. He revealed his true identity when he claimed to the world "today we take Georgia, tomorrow the world.

I saw a article the other day that rated Colorado the most stoned state in the USA.

And the way that residents are voting I have to agree

Can't believe they top Oregon. Before anyone thinks I'm bashing Oregon, it is one of the most beautiful states I have visited.

The politics here are unbelievable.
I live on the east side of the state and work on the west side. My wife and I looked at moving west to cut down on the commuting but there are tons of marijuana grows and the place stinks so bad in the fall. So unfortunate.

But.... Here was my view right off the bat while working today. Minutes before I saw a really nice 4 point blacktail... Not quite Boone and Crockett.

I've only been to Oregon once, in 1996. Flew up to Medford for some software training. Seeing Mt. Shasta for the first time from the air was spectacular.

The one above is Mt McGloughlin.
Here is Shasta as viewed on one of my last deer hunts before da Covid. I had to hike out of that spot while the onset of shortness of breath and fatigue was coming on. Wasn't nearly as bad as the next 48 hours.

Anyone see the Newsmax interview with (I think, Biglots) CEO who had his computer nerds on the task of Dominion system analysis? BTW, what happened with the argument that non state legislature changes to allow voting past Nov 3rd are on their face unconstitutional; that would be enough to overturn the election by itself. How does Alito not see the unconstitutional process, and thereby rubber-stamp other means of change--Gov's, election boards, judges etc.??!!

If China is proven to have been directly involved in our elections, is that a new path to election nullification, with new election maybe warranted.

This IT Security nerd looks at some of the videos and thinks to himself "no way is Dominion so incompetent." I could see incompetence at county and state level of the election machine, but not this degree of incompetence.

The surreptitious thumb drive handoff raises quite a number of questions, and they all point to malice, not incompetence.

1. it is normal practice in most large organizations to use a Group Policy to disable ALL* external data ports. in this case, even rolling back the GPO won't undo the change. Either an individual user would have to make a registry modification, or a new GPO published which makes that regedit at the enterprise level
* - except possibly sales/marketing
2. it is normal practice within many large organizations to use Zero Trust endpoint agents like Bit9 and CyberArk to do what can be done with that Group Policy. Not to mention that both Bit9 and CyberArk will ***only*** allow execution of those programs which have been expressly permitted to execute. Both of those tools are a Default Deny on ***everything***. As a frame of reference, I am the Bit9 owner where I work, and also do lots of work in CyberArk.
3. all large organizations use SIEM tools (we use splunk). SIEM tools are good aggregators from all activity for all security tools, for event logging, and a number of other things.
4. there may be some that don't and I am not aware of them, but EDR sensors are deployed which will track Every. Single. Thing.: file executions, file modifications, network connections, registry modifications, memory abuse, and quite a number more. Some EDR (endpoint detection and response) tools, like the one we use, actually give me reverse shell to every single PC and server in the entire enterprise. If a user has mounted a personal OneDrive or Google Drive to Windows Explorer, I can see all of the contents of his Google or OneDrive.

With the tool set we use where I work, there is literally nothing I cannot see and audit anywhere in our enterprise, with the exception of database content (Oracle, MS SQL Server, MySQL, MongoDB, et al).

It is quite a stretch for me to believe none of those sorts of tools were in place anywhere because of incompetence.

I think we are actually saying much the same thing.

Clearly, some Antifa members have "armed" themselves, but it would be a stretch to call them a true armed wing of the progressive movement. Yes they have created havoc in places where local government has tolerated it, and they have been quickly cowed where it hasn't. I would suggest fully half of them are middle to upper middle class delinquents behaving badly for a socialist lark as opposed to any real commitment to some ideology. They are able to do it because parents underwrite them and bail them out of trouble just as they did when they were 12. Where they don't, sympathetic government all too often has done so.

The looters are who they have always been. The urban mob seizing the opportunity for early Christmas.

ANTIFA will not attack private homes in localities where citizens still have the right to defend themselves and their property - at least not more than once. And I fully agree a single trained infantry veteran can easily see off a small mob of these adult children. We had a pathetic little riot in Austin. An ANTIFA acolyte threatened a man in a car with an AK. The man in the car (an active duty Army NCO) but three rounds fatally into the punk's chest and didn't even spend a night in jail even in progressive Austin. All that is a long way around to say that they will continue to mainly terrorize democrat run cities.

Corporations, government and individuals have been bullied through twitter and other social media. Unfortunately, most of the elected officer's, owners, and managers of those entities are not particularly tech savvy, and have yet to learn the virtue of ignoring the noise. The virtual mob always moves quickly on to the next outrage. The online thugs threatening boycotts don't have any money anyway.

We can either look at this as part of a long slide into Marxist oblivion, or as a call to "arms" - political and social. "When the political landscape in America is changed forever ....." it is already way to late. It also pointless to dream of an America where nothing changes. The country will continue to evolve as it has over the last 250 years. However, the forces arrayed to accelerate that change are indeed greater than ever. We must fight back and we must do it now or it won't matter how many thirty-round magazines we have to be confiscated.

These chaotic, dangerous cities should be seen as political opportunity. What resident really wants to live under such conditions - whatever their self-imposed white guilt may be. The congressional success in California, and the slow shift among working minorities to the republican party should be a bell weather for the future - particularly in a redistricting year. The republican party should be set for a 20 seat house majority in '22. The pendulum does swing and we had better be ready to exploit that swing. The senate is right before our noses next month.

Social change will be harder. After all. liberal academics have been working on our children and grandchildren for two generations. But we need coherent plans of action to take back curriculum from these ideologues. Coming out of Covid restrictions, Universities will be fiscally desperate. I have seen nothing from any conservative commentator, think tank, or political leader about leveraging that to achieve a more balanced social and historical courses of instruction. Now is the time to kick 1619 to the curb where it belongs, or to modify its mythology so that it reflects actual history.

This won't be easy. Right now the "vast majority" of Americans actually do not identify themselves with deplorables, red necks, racists, whatever. Based on the last election, they see us correctly as a minority. Now, we can either stay that way, nursing our outrage and awaiting the punks to show up at the door or we can go on the offensive. And I do not mean through some quixotic militia movement, but through hard nosed political effort and grassroots engagement with schools and local government. And while we are at it, we individually might pay as close attention as possible to those grandchildren.

I am simply saying, that for me, these are the battles and battlefield that truly matter.
I agree 100%. Having said that, unless we keep the Senate now, I have NO hope for the strategy you outlined. IMHO the strategy you put forth is a generational one that should’ve begun in earnest 40-60 years ago and now there’s simply not enough time. Too little too late. Still a noble cause and still worth fighting for but again too little too late. Biden is going to be President unless a miracle happens, which is possible. As for the midterms and the next presidential election, I’ll believe it when I see it. Without the Senate in Republican control for the next two years I think the damage that could be done would be irreparable.
