Parler getting booted off Amazon servers today is a big deal. But this just means more server networks get started up in opposition to the self-regulated ones, making their actors and incitements even harder to expose and and even stronger at solidifying ...
The US voter middle long since vanished.
I'm struggling to see much downside for Republican Party yet. Twitter and Facebook have just handed massive amounts of market share to 8Chan and OAN. I'm looking forward to a decent poll shift. So far MSM response isn't shifting them. Trump will rightly ...
I'm waaaay prettier than those scrote-faced permaculturalists.
Riverton Tavern pull their Blue Cod straight off the boat. Also you can air freight whole Stewart Island Salmon up. Wrap in tinfoil and pack half a cup of couscous around them. Its a big reveal at the table.
Just passed Bowalley Road heading on coast to Kakanui.
More preservatives than Lancome.
Not crowded. OMG. Wanaka? Queenstown? Whangamata anyone?
Vegan boysenberry Trumpet works ok.
Slightly harder for a new party to form. But still plenty of supportive base. Almost like Lindbergh being deserted in 41 after the anti-Jew speech (except he never got elected).
Try out the Catlins good people. Sealions and Terns. Rata in bloom to the roadside.
Goldwater was chosen as the Republican neocon standardbearer but in 1964 was trounced by LBJ. He was supposed to rebuild the Republican Party in the face of the New Deal. The revival/split failed. The next election was a Republican gift because LBJ didn't...
68% of Republican voters see the election as so illegitimate that armed intervention is acceptable. Salon has it. This is a powerful revival - and with over 60% of Republicans in Senate and Congress challenging the Presidential vote its already a more ...
Curfew is holding fine. As civil unrest its was mild - the rest is where it happened. There's no law and order problem. And really there's no politics either. Senate and Congress are in recess until after inauguration so there's no live politics for 13 ...
What a beautiful two weeks it is going to be for the Democrats. The Republicans have self-identified who can work with the Democrats. And who won't. Call me optimistic but all those senators and representatives who challenged the Presidential vote ...
Threat my ass. Congress, Senate, and White House have democratically elected people in them. Supreme Court rejected the appeals. Conservative commentators unanimous in condemnation. Order restored. What will Biden do with this political gift of a crisis?
Looks more like a very effective renewal. Splits usually signal restless fire in the base. All polls signal strong majority of Republicans view this US election as stolen. This is a movement ready to rock.
This is the hard right symbolic and visual triumph that the new militant movement needed. They are going to rise fast now in 2021 - House majorities be damned. Maybe Albright's commentary on rising fascism was right.
Huge thanks to the Guytons for their hospitality and communitarian vigour. Make sure you visit Riverton good TS people.
My guilty pleasure Boxing Day film is The Name of the Rose.
Hey Sanctuary put your pants on and do a post on the media lowlights this year.
The Kepler from Boxing Day, then off to visit the Guyton's on the 1st.
Supply chain resilience sounds useful, but I'd like to know some details about whether this agreement will defend them from anything.
The conclusion of the article you cite is that "...with the spirit of ‘60s utopianism: maybe we should ask not what other countries can do for us, but what we might do for them ... And yet - when the alternative is watching with pity and smugness as ...
A reasonably smart Prime Minister of Australia would renegotiate ANZUS and the Five Power defence arrangement and re-settle the whole thing into something a bit more coherent. A defence pact that included Australasia, Malaysia, Singapore, and the ...
When you take into account the Realm sea defence and fisheries management areas of Tokelau, Niue, Cook Islands and Antarctic claims, we are simply going to need a whole bunch more maritime patrol aircraft than the ones we have on order for 2023. But that's...
It enables many hundreds of New Zealanders who would otherwise be displaced from doing great walks by foreign tourists to have an epic nature adventure within our national parks. You can't get to any of them without internal travel.
On light rail I see Twyford more as a victim of major state entity infighting.
Even the Neanderthals had staff
