We just got back from a cruise on the Majestic Princess traveling from San Pedro (Los Angeles) to Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlán, and Cabo San Lucas. We had a wonderful time, but there was one thing that was strange. While at sea, the first day, we were told to set our clocks ahead one hour, to adjust to “ship time.” Now this was convenient, for the ship, but seldom consistent with the time zone in which we were actually traveling or sometimes the time zone on shore. Then on the way back to San Pedro, the captain asked us to change it back to California time. Right now, it is 8:02 am in California. In Puerto Vallarta it is 10:02 am. In Mazatlán and Cabo San Lucas, it is 9:02 am. So, the Captain chose to change the clocks only once, regardless of the actual time zone. This worked fine on a cruise ship, but it also meant that for much of the trip, ship time was inconsistent with the time zone for the actual geographical location. I am not complaining, just explaining. It did drive us nuts trying to get our Apple Watches to show the right time.

Joe Biden gave us another example of daylight savings time. But this time, with a whole new meaning. There has been tremendous pressure on Biden to hold a real press conference. During the entire campaign and for most of his Presidency, he has been sheltered from the media and any tough questions. His few press appearances were largely staged, where he read off a Teleprompter, poorly, then if he answered any questions at all, they were from carefully selected reporters, with predetermined questions and rehearsed answers. He didn’t even do well during these events, but it was a lot better than what we saw during his full press conference.

While it is easy to cherry pick this and find occasions where Joe Biden appears to have gotten lost or where he gave confusing answers, that was not the biggest problem. The real problem is that many people got to see the real Joe Biden, without the filters, and few were impressed. His comments regarding Russia and Ukraine were so bad the White House has spent the last couple of days trying, and failing, to do damage control. The more they try to explain, the worse it gets.

People saw a Joe Biden who is not only not very impressive, but he is also a bitter and angry man with a delusional view of the real world. He literally cannot grasp the obvious fact that people are rejecting his policies. He cannot understand that the skyrocketing price of gas affects all of us, that inflation is real, and that the only thing we know for sure about COVID is that it has been grossly mismanaged. Nothing they have done has worked. We have all these people vaccinated, we destroyed our economy, we are paying people to stay home, we are forcing people to wear masks and forcing people to get a vaccine, which some of them feel is dangerous and others feel, for them, it is unnecessary. The latter group was right, by the way, the CDC reluctantly admitted that people who have had COVID and recovered have more protection from natural immunity than available from any vaccine. But most important he feels the need to demonize anyone who dares disagree with him.

Most people don’t realize that Bill Clinton had a worse first year in office than Biden. It was Bill Clinton’s performance that resulted in Newt Gingrich and the contract with America. But Bill Clinton, for all his faults, is not stupid. He realized that people were rejecting his policies, so he changed. As a result, he managed to stay in office for another seven years and by collaborating with Republicans rather than demonizing them, he managed to take credit for things actually done in spite of him.

But Joe Biden is not smart. He is not capable of learning from his mistakes. He is not even capable of recognizing mistakes which results in total incompetence. Harvard Business School did a study that showed that one fundamental problem is that “most incompetent people don’t realize they are incompetent, which is why they are incompetent in the first place.” Many of us have dealt with this personally, reporting to someone who is incompetent and who does not realize they are incompetent. It is difficult, if not impossible, for this situation to end well. After this “performance” a whole lot of people have been confronted with the reality of Joe Biden’s incompetence. Even the MSM, which loves some of his socialist ideas, has started to turn on him. They realize that their socialist dreams are going down the drain with him. Most of all, they realize he is hopelessly incompetent.

They often say it is darkest just before dawn. I think that is true today. For a long time, people were in the dark about the real Joe Biden. The MSM covered up for him and fawned over him and his staff was able to keep him under wraps most of the time, hiding the reality of this human disaster. But the darkest night is always followed by a new dawn. Joe Biden gave a press conference, primarily because he had no choice. He, predictably, botched it. But he also put himself in the direct sunlight where he was exposed for the entire world to see the reality of the real Joe Biden. The first step to solving any problem is understanding that there is a problem and to start working on a solution. We have now reached that point. Everyone knows that change is necessary. I call it “Daylight Savings Time.” There is a bright new dawn already on the way.



My grandfather used to love Friday night fights. So did a lot of other people during the 1960s. Watching boxing on TV was a really big deal.

I will never forget watching Emile Griffith fight Benny “Kid” Paret. This happened on a Saturday, March 24, 1962. It was broadcast as the ABC Fight of the Week.” Benny “Kid” Paret was the reigning Welterweight champion. This was actually the third fight between these two. Griffith won the first match; Paret won the second and this was the rubber match. This took place in Madison Square Garden. The fight lasted 12 rounds and even that round started out slow. Then Griffith his Paret with a solid punch, backed him into a corner and started pounding him. It was later determined that Paret was hit with 29 unanswered blows. Paret, who was still standing, slowly slid to the floor, and collapsed. Actually, his trainers basically pulled him down to the floor. At first, all the attention was on Emile Griffith celebrating winning the world championship. Then it started to become obvious that Paret was seriously injured. He was carried from the ring on a stretcher, and he died 10 days later.

This all happened in just a few seconds. While some argued that the referee should have stopped the fight sooner, if you watch this on video, not in slow motion, the speed at which this happened is amazing. The referee did stop the fight, but it was too late to save Benny Kid Paret. Now, of course, we realize the cumulative trauma that many of these boxers experienced as the result of being hit in the head so many times. Ultimately, as a result of this and other incidents, people stopped watching boxing matches

When Davey Moore died after a fight with Sugar Ramos in March 1963 the end was near. By December 1963 ABC announced that it was cancelling the “Fight of the Week.”  The last of the Friday Night Fights was September 11, 1964, when Nigerian middleweight Dick Tiger defeated Don Fulmer.

This is a reminder of how quickly things can change. Prior to the death of Benny “Kid” Paret it was hard to imagine something as popular as boxing almost disappear. But that is exactly what happened, and it only took a couple of seconds. Today there are increasing signs that Joe Biden has taken a few too many punches and he is down for the count. Even the MSM media parasites that worked so hard to defeat Donald Trump and put Biden in office have had enough. They have turned on him with a speed that is astonishing. Although they still coverup the obvious signs of dementia and they still downplay his serial lying, his performance is too bad to ignore. His speech calling Republicans racists for demanding fair and honest elections was a bridge too far. The man who promised to unite us has instead divided us even further.

In the 1960s, the solution was pretty easy. They just stopped broadcasting boxing matches and significant steps were taken to make the sport safer. But the Biden dilemma is far more challenging because there is no visible means to fix this. If Biden were removed from office today, his replacement would be Kamala Harris, who is decidedly worse. If both were replaced, we would get Nancy Pelosi, which would make both of them look good in comparison.

We are now at the point where change is inevitable. Even the MSM wants change. Unless something intervenes, Republicans will run the table in 2022. That will matter more than you can imagine. Democrats promoted a hoax to investigate Trump. Then they tried to impeach him over a phone call with Ukraine that they couldn’t even begin to define as a crime. Finally, they tried to impeach him again, with 24 hours left in office. This set a new, extremely low standard for a congress to directly challenge a President. It is hard to imagine Republicans ignoring this opportunity.

The only thing certain is that Joe Biden is down for the count. The only thing certain is change. Unprecedented change.



For the past year Democrats and their fawning supporters in the MSM have been trying, and failing, to convince people that January 6th, 2021, was a failed attempt at overthrowing our government led by Donald Trump. VP President Kamala Harris compared this to the December 7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor and the September 11, 2001, attack on the World Trade Center. That is patently absurd. Other than the usual suspect talking heads on TV I don’t know of anyone who is even talking about this, including a lot of liberal friends.

Here is what Joe Biden said today:

Madam Vice President, my fellow Americans: To state the obvious, one year ago today, in this sacred place, democracy was attacked — simply attacked. The will of the people was under assault. The Constitution — our Constitution — faced the gravest of threats.

Outnumbered and in the face of a brutal attack, the Capitol Police, the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department, the National Guard, and other brave law enforcement officials saved the rule of law.

Our democracy held. We the people endured. And we the people prevailed.

Just a wee bit of exaggeration here. Then, after lecturing us about the need to tell the truth, Biden lied.

The Bible tells us that we shall know the truth, and the truth shall make us free. We shall know the truth.

Well, here is the God’s truth about January 6th, 2021:

The he looked right into the camera and lied.

For the first time in our history, a president had not just lost an election, he tried to prevent the peaceful transfer of power as a violent mob breached the Capitol.

We saw it with our own eyes. Rioters menaced these halls, threatening the life of the Speaker of the House, literally erecting gallows to hang the Vice President of the United States of America.

But what did we not see?

We didn’t see a former president, who had just rallied the mob to attack — sitting in the private dining room off the Oval Office in the White House, watching it all on television and doing nothing for hours as police were assaulted, lives at risk, and the nation’s capital under siege.

A riot was declared at 1:50 pm. Trump responded at 2:30 pm

At 2:38 Trump tweeted: “Please support our Capitol Police and Law Enforcement. They are truly on the side of our Country. Stay peaceful!”

At 3:13 Trump tweeted: “I am asking for everyone at the U.S. Capitol to remain peaceful. No violence! Remember, WE are the Party of Law & Order – respect the Law and our great men and women in Blue. Thank you!”

At 4:17 Trump uploads a video to this twitter account saying the following:

“I know your pain, I know you’re hurt. We had an election that was stolen from us. It was a landslide election and everyone knows it, especially the other side. But you have to go home now. We have to have peace. We have to have law and order. We have to respect our great people in law and order. We don’t want anybody hurt. It’s a very tough period of time. There’s never been a time like this where such a thing happened where they could take it away from all of us — from me, from you, from our country. This was a fraudulent election, but we can’t play into the hands of these people. We have to have peace. So go home. We love you. You’re very special. You’ve seen what happens. You see the way others are treated that are so bad and so evil. I know how you feel, but go home, and go home in peace.”

At 6:01 Trump tweets: “These are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously & viciously stripped away from great patriots who have been badly & unfairly treated for so long. Go home with love & in peace. Remember this day forever!”

One may argue that Trump should have done more, but what Joe Biden said is a lie. A lie told on national television. A lie that is easily discredited. Wise people do not believe people who deliberately lie, particularly about something so material and so well documented. But then, Joe Biden is already famous for this.

He also lied when he said:  “Rioters menaced these halls, threatening the life of the Speaker of the House, literally erecting gallows to hang the Vice President of the United States of America.”

There was a “makeshift” gallows erected, but no one in their right mind could possibly view this as a serious attempt to hang Mike Pence. But then Joe Biden said this, so there you are. Black Lives Matters protestors did put a Donald Trump effigy in a guillotine outside of the White House in August 2020. If Joe Biden noticed, it didn’t consider it important.

I believe Democrats have made a huge mistake. By exaggerating what actually happened on January 6th, 2021, they have made it impossible to ignore the true significant of this event. The more we learn about this and the events that led up to it, the more obvious it will be who is lying. The more obvious it will be who is the real threat to democracy and the more likely people will become united in demanding this be fixed.

Let’s do have a real discussion regarding what happened on January 6th, 2021. It is about time.



2022 is going to be an interesting year. It is already starting out bad, with COVID soaring, gas prices soaring, empty shelves and higher prices. But wait, there is more. We had a snowstorm in Northern California, which is actually quite predictable. But this took down powerlines and there are people who have been out of power for days if not weeks. They are not happy. In Virginia, there was a snowstorm that resulted in people trapped in their cars for hours. The Governor, outgoing Democrat Northam, said they should have paid attention and stayed home. That is not playing well anywhere. U.S. Senator Kane was trapped in his car, for 27 hours. While trapped in their cars, those with radios could have heard Kamala Harris giggling about how Build Back Better has America moving again. It is increasingly harder to blame snowstorms and freezing weather on global warming.

The CDC just admitted that the current tests cannot distinguish between COVID and the flu. There are hundreds, no thousands, no millions of people who have no symptoms in long lines waiting to receive a test, which doesn’t actually work, to see if they are sick. This is very unlikely to end well.

Here is Northern California gas is already north of $4.00 and surging. Some gas stations have signs showing prices north of $5.00. Ground beef, at Walmart, costs $4.43 per pound, for 80% lean, if you can find it. It doesn’t appear to be available in stores. At Safeway, you can buy a pound of ground beef, 85% lean, discounted from $9.49 per pound to $7.99 per pound. If you buy about five pounds you can save money at Sam’s Club. Everyone, but Joe Biden, knows that this is problem. The only question regarding inflation is “how much higher?”

Crime is surging everywhere, because of defund the police policies and idiotic decisions to stop charging people for shoplifting and, incredibly, to stop charging people for resisting arrest. Everyone who voted for this nonsense should be sentenced to watch 5 hours of COPS to see how this works in real life.

The only store doing well in Hollywood is the single store selling guns. It turns out even white liberals are buying guns. Other people are buying guns too, like the government in Canada that is trying to buy back ARM 15 type guns. There is just a minor problem, few people are selling, and a few are saying: “go ahead, try and get it.” This is obviously not good news to anyone other than reporters on CNN like Don Lemon and Anderson Cooper.

Donald Trump wisely cancelled his news conference for January 6th. Joe Biden is going to speak to the nation telling everyone about the insurrection and the greatest threat to Democracy since the Civil War. Does anyone really expect him to knock this out of the park? This is more likely to end up like the Congressional Baseball game where he described coming close to hitting a ball out of the park, which would have been more believable if he had actually played.

He has problems. One is that he lies so much few people believe anything he says anymore. Another is that the actual facts do not support his case. He is horrible at reading a script and cannot even pretend to answer a question coherently. He is far more likely to make the case against the insurrection than anything Donald Trump could do or say. Trump now has an event scheduled for the 15th. All he needs do is play a video of Joe Biden and then laugh and ask if anyone is taking this seriously. Mary Hamm taught us that the best way to respond to a joke is to laugh.

In the meantime, since the CDC admitted it can’t tell the difference between COVID and the flu, it decided to just find a new variant that is, conveniently, a combination of the two. Since they are unwilling to ever admit error, they are planning to scare everyone by replacing COVID with the flu. The only way to describe this is “FLUEY.”



2021 was a horrible very bad year. Everyone agrees with that. The only question is who to blame. The finger pointing is already underway. Democrats are in charge, so they will get most of the blame and they appear to be doubling down on disaster. Good luck with that.

For example, there was a major snowstorm in Virginia. People were trapped on I-95 for hours. That included Democratic Senator Tim Kaine. Everyone involved was furious. They shrieked about how this shows a total lack of leadership. The new Republican Governor, Glen Youngkin absolutely failed his first leadership test. He should have called out the national guard or done “something.” Oops. Glen Youngkin is not the Governor of Virginia. That would be Democratic Governor Ralph Northam. Glen Youngkin does not become governor until January 15th, 2022. Nice!

The Problem with Liberals Blaming Glenn Youngkin for VA’s Response to Monday’s Winter Storm (

Then there was AOC who got caught partying, in Florida, without a mask. She immediately fought back by saying this was because she was so hot, Republicans wanted to date her. This was literally insane. Many people realized that AOC is not actually that bright and she has a lot of really dumb ideas. But perhaps a couple of extra margaritas convinced AOC she should write her own tweets proving this beyond all doubt.

Mary Katherine Ham, who actually is smart, shut her down so badly that even the CNN hosts were cracking up.

WATCH: Mary Katharine Ham Mercilessly Mocks AOC For Claiming Republicans Just Want To Date Her | The Daily Wire

First, what AOC stupidly wrote:

“If Republicans are mad they can’t date me they can just say that instead of projecting their sexual frustrations onto my boyfriend’s feet. Ya creepy weirdos,” 

 “It’s starting to get old ignoring the very obvious, strange, and deranged sexual frustrations that underpin the Republican fixation on me, women, & LGBT+ people in general. These people clearly need therapy, won’t do it, and use politics as their outlet instead. It’s really weird.”

Mary Ham knocked it out of the park with the following:

“First of all, I woke up like this. So I have authority on people being sexually frustrated by my mere existence,” 

“I’m glad to be able to discuss this with you. The plight of the super hot in America has long been ignored. AOC has started a national conversation about this. You know, I know we have all dealt with it … You know, we can start an organization or something.”

The mental decline of Joe Biden is becoming increasingly obvious. The following link is to the virtual meeting Biden had with Ranchers and Farmers yesterday.

President Biden Holds Virtual Meeting with Ranchers and Farmers |

He walks into an empty room, wearing a mask, with the only other people in the room, several feet away, also wearing masks. He tries to claim that his administration has done a wonderful job in changing the direction of the economy. He looks awful and when he has to answer questions, at the end, he looks lost and confused. There was a desperate attempt to cover this up, with Biden reading from a script and other people doing all of the talking. Then, as soon as there was the hint of a real question, the meeting was cut short, and everyone was promptly escorted out. The problem is the problem is beyond obvious.

The January 6th, 2021, commission has an impossible mission. It’s goal is to prove that there were no possible issues regarding the legitimacy of the 2020 election and that January 6th, 2021 was the equivalent of the battle at Gettysburg.  If you check the polls, fewer and fewer people are buying that nonsense. The more we learn about January 6th, 2021, the more obvious it will be regarding who is and is not lying about almost everything.

2022 will be a long year, but multiple things have reached the boiling point and change is already on the way. This is impossible to predict, but one thing is sure. Lies will be exposed, including the myth of deadly peril from global warming. None of the predictions by the climate change alarmists have come close to being true. I cannot predict the weather but can easily predict who is most likely to be wrong. For example, people trapped in a snowstorm in Virginia are not thinking about how great it would be to be driving an electric vehicle designed to stop global warming.

This will be a leap year. Where we leap over the smothering ashes of what used to be known as the Democratic Party. Enjoy the ride, this is going to be fun to watch.



You can’t make this up.

“After December 31, 2021, CDC will withdraw the request to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of the CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel, the assay first introduced in February 2020 for detection of SARS-CoV-2 only. CDC is providing this advance notice for clinical laboratories to have adequate time to select and implement one of the many FDA-authorized alternatives.

In preparation for this change, CDC recommends clinical laboratories and testing sites that have been using the CDC 2019-nCoV RT-PCR assay select and begin their transition to another FDA-authorized COVID-19 test. CDC encourages laboratories to consider adoption of a multiplexed method that can facilitate detection and differentiation of SARS-CoV-2 and influenza viruses. Such assays can facilitate continued testing for both influenza and SARS-CoV-2 and can save both time and resources as we head into influenza season. Laboratories and testing sites should validate and verify their selected assay within their facility before beginning clinical testing.”

This means the PCR test, which so many people have been required to take, cannot distinguish between COVID and the flu. The CDC just admitted that. That sure explains why the flu suddenly disappeared when COVID hit. It also raises serious red flags regarding who is providing misinformation. All of us have been inundated with the daily drumbeat of new COVID cases reminding us of why this is so very serious. Now we learn that the CDC does not trust the PCR test, which means NONE of the data being reported on the MSM and by the CDC can be trusted. The truth is we don’t even know how many people actually had COVID and we certainly don’t know how many of the 800,000 COVID deaths were actually caused by COVID. We already know that many of them were cases where people died “with COVID” but not necessarily “from COVID.” Now we learn that we aren’t even sure they had COVID at all. I suspect even the MSM is going to be shocked when they realize the extent of deliberately misleading information used to justify extreme measures that clearly did not work. They MSM has proven itself to be incredibly naïve, but this is insane.

So, while COVID is all too real, the reporting by the CDC has been very unreal.

It gets worse. Yesterday, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said testing at the end of quarantine is no longer needed because PCR test can stay positive for up to 12 weeks.

Dr. Rochelle Walensky explains why CDC doesn’t require testing at end of isolation – ABC30 Fresno

The newly updated CDC guidelines don’t require testing at the end of isolation because PCR tests can stay positive for up to 12 weeks, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky told “Good Morning America” on Wednesday.

So, weeks after you had COVID, and recovered, and represent no risk to anyone, you can still test positive on a PCR test. Isn’t that special!

The alternative to a PCR test is an antigen test. Well, it turns out the PCR test is significantly more reliable than the antigen test. Wow!

COVID-19 PCR vs. Antigen Test – Which Is Better? (

“RT-PCR tests are the most reliable of diagnostic tests available, with at least 94% peak accuracy. Unlike antigen tests, PCR tests can detect the coronavirus even at low viral loads and at nearly any stage of the infection.”

It is now official. Those people who have been arrogantly lecturing us and micro-managing our lives for nearly two years, by following the science, were themselves ignoring the science. Incredibly we are at a point where we just may know less about COVID today than we did in March of 2020. The only thing we know for certain is that the people who demanded we trust them have proven themselves unworthy of that trust.

Combine that with wholesale testing of people who don’t have symptoms, with a test known to be faulty, and firing them if they don’t comply and this is a perfect storm. Just when you thought things could not possibly get worse, they got worse.



In 1666 Sir Isaac Newton discovered gravity. The legend is that he discovered this when an apple fell from a tree and hit him on the head. There is no actual evidence of that. But it is true that he figured out what gravity was by watching apples, among other things. It was actually quite simple. He noticed that when an apple on a tree moved from a resting position, it fell to the ground. He realized that “something” was making that apple fall. The result was his law of gravitation. Sometimes the most important discoveries happen just like that. Someone just sees the obvious and then tries to figure out why this is happening.

This reminded me that when we first learned about COVID all the really smart scientists came to the exact same conclusion. They said we could never hope to stop COVID from spreading, but we could flatten the curve. You may remember all the charts and graphs that showed how locking things down, for a while, would flatten the curve. That would allow hospitals to gear up with PPE, additional ICU beds and ventilators. That, by the way, is exactly what happened. Remember how during the peak of the COVID outbreak in 2020, Governors Newsom and Cuomo both admitted that the Trump administration had geared up to prepare for the peak and they had to admit they had EVERYTHING they needed. That was remarkable considering the fact that both Governors are liberal Democrats who hate Trump.

Then I heard something interesting. In South Africa, where the COVID omicron variant appears to have originated, Doctors there reported that while omicron spread amazingly fast, it was not very lethal. So far, I am aware of only one omicron death in the U.S. and the doctors in that hospital were quick to report that the person who died did have the omicron variant but that is not necessarily what killed him. He turned out to be extremely sick before he got COVID.

This caused me to ask a simple and obvious question that no one else seems to be asking at all. What if, with this version of COVID, we shouldn’t stop trying to flatten the curve, but rather shorten the curve. Actually, golfer Phil Michelson said something similar to that recently. Right now, everyone is freaking out that COVID is spreading very rapidly because of the omicron variant. But what if that is actually a good thing. What if the rapid spread of a mild version of the omicron variant is a good development, and not a bad thing at all. Think about this. If this spreads really rapidly, then the illusionary herd immunity that real scientists embrace and the Dr. Fauci’s of this world ignore, solves the problem. So, I did five minutes of research, which means I googled this. Here is what I found. Decide for yourself:

Below is a graph of new COVID cases In South Africa, where the omicron variant first appeared.


Notice that each cycle had a spike followed by a rapid decline. The difference is that the length of the cycle for the omicron variant appears to be much narrower. In other words, it peaked faster, and it is declining faster. Now look at the same graph for the U.S.

Note the obvious difference. We did flatten the curve in the U.S. But ultimately appear to have pretty comparable results, just at a later date. Now we see this rising rapidly, as it did in South Africa, and it seems logical that the decline will also be very rapid, as is already happening in South Africa. If this is correct, that new COVID cases in the U.S. will start to decline very rapidly. That might be happening already if we weren’t so desperate to test people who have no symptoms. But even in the U.S. it is bound to happen, for the exact same reason. When you flatten the curve, you get comparable results over a longer period of time, but when you shorten the curve, you also get comparable results only over a much shorter period of time. When you combine the fact that so many people in the U.S. have been vaccinated and the documented, but ignored, facts of natural immunity, the faster COVID spreads the faster we get herd immunity and the sooner it is gone.

I think a lot of people may be shocked to see this happen in a noticeably abbreviated period of time. It seems possible, if the pattern holds true, that we will start to see new COVID cases drop in half almost daily. And the good news is the faster it spreads now, the faster it goes away. Ironically, by Joe Biden giving up and saying there is no federal ability to manage this, he may have accidentally done exactly the right thing. Doing nothing may turn out to be a brilliant strategy. I doubt that he understands that. I am sure his fawning supporters in the MSM do not understand that and I am even more certain the Dr. Fauci’s of this world will try to pretend this is not happening.

But what goes up, must come down. The speed at which it goes up equals the speed at which it comes down. Sir Isaac Newton figured this out in 1666. How long will it take us?



In December 1970 it snowed a lot. Donner Pass got 179 inches of snow. The people promoting global warming ignored the fact that this was a record and seized the day. They ignored historical patterns and assumed that since there has been less snow, since 1970, that this is irrefutable proof of global warming. Actually, it is only proof of ignoring history. Historical records show that sometimes it snows a lot and sometimes it doesn’t. When it snows a lot in one decade, the next decade tends to have less snow. It is important to understand that we don’t actually have good records regarding snowfall. It was only recently that someone started measuring the snow at the same time using the same equipment.  First, they started measuring by using a stick and then a snow board. So, the truth is we really don’t know how much snow there is now compared to the past. What we do know is this. Since 1900, there was a period during the 1920s and 1930s where there was less snow. There was a period during the 1960s and 1970s when there was more snow. Global warming alarmists like 1970, because they can say: “See, there has been a less snow ever since 1970.” They pretend the 1920s and 1930s didn’t happen.

Oops. It is now reported that, gasp, Donner Summit has more snow, as of today, than there was in 1970. December 2021 is officially the snowiest month on record at Donner Summit. In 1970, there was 179 inches of snow. So far, as of today, Donner Summit has already received 193.7 inches of snow and it could go over 200 inches.

They are already starting to release water, gasp, from Folsom Dam. Just this summer people were posting pictures of Folsom Lake and remarking about the lack of water. I am sure many of them thought this was proof of global warming. Today, not so much. But something else has changed, more than the weather. This time people are paying attention to who is managing the water. The obvious question is how much of the drought was the result of weather and how much was the result of the “whether.” Meaning whether or not to release water rather than save it for future dry periods. I personally think everyone involved should be required to read about Joseph and his advice to Pharoah.

So far, the weather pattern seems to be continuing. It probably depends on the Jet Stream. One thing is certain, if it looked like a warmer, drier winter, you would already know. In October 2020 forecasters were predicting worsening drought conditions, because of La Nina. Oops. What? La Nina. Don’t we have a La Nina this year too. Isn’t the La Nina supposed to bring warmer drier weather? What is going on here. The sad reality is that far too many forecasts and projections were based on politics rather than science. They wanted you to believe in global warming. They needed you to believe in global warming. So, everything that happened was considered proof of global warming, but they changed this to “climate change,” to prevent anyone from developing a false sense of security. That way anything that happens is equally dire.

But there is a problem. Although COVID locked a lot of people down and made them wear masks, the masks didn’t actually cover their eyes. People can see what is going on, and the only thing certain is that the politicians in charge are mucking things up. We put up with the masks, the lockdowns, the mandatory vaccines, the cancellations of sporting events because we were told this was necessary to stop COVID. But it didn’t work. COVID is still here, it is still spreading, and the thousands of people attending football games are obviously not the problem. The problem is that players, with no symptoms, are testing positive for COVID, so they can’t play. The primary risk to people attending games is disgust at the poor performance. Then, sleepy Joe accidentally told the truth, that he can’t possibly manage our way out of COVID.

For the record, there has been global warming, since around 1600. It started getting warmer long before the industrial revolution. So, what changed? Easy, the Sun. You see in the 1600s they had what is called the Maunder Minimum.

Maunder Minimum – Wikipedia

The Maunder Minimum, also known as the “prolonged sunspot minimum”, was a period around 1645 to 1715 during which sunspots became exceedingly rare. During a 28-year period (1672–1699) within the minimum, observations revealed fewer than 50 sunspots. This contrasts with the typical 40,000–50,000 sunspots seen in modern times over a similar timespan.

So perhaps people should reflect on Solar Cycle 25. What? Solar Cycle 25. What is that? It this some new kind of exercise bike? No, actually it is all too real.

Note one prediction is of a slow slide to a Maunder minimum like state. The truth is no one knows. What we do know is this. God has a lot more impact on things than anything done by mortal man. The best made plans of mice and men like Al Gore can disappear overnight if God is not amused. I certainly don’t speak for God, but he doesn’t seem to be amused. Only one thing is sure. We have a lot of snow on Donner Summit, and it won’t necessarily go away anytime soon. What will go away, thankfully, is the current class of leadership. We may not know how to fix all this, but we sure know who has created more problems than solutions.



By now everyone is really sick with all the COVID stuff. Many people, like us, have been vaccinated and had their booster shots. Others don’t want a vaccine they believe has not been properly tested. In addition, some of these people do not feel very vulnerable to COVID. This may be because they are younger and have no co-morbidity issues or it may even be because they had COVID and considered themselves immune.

Yet, none of this matters, we are still dealing with lockdowns, mask mandates, school closures and more. The President of the United States is scolding everyone to get vaccinated, but Senators Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren recently tested positive for COVID even though both were fully vaccinated, and both had their booster shot. This makes a lot of us wonder what is going on here.

It is increasingly difficult to have any confidence in what is being reported about COVID. For example, there are at least some people who believe that many of the COVID deaths are not “from” COVID, but rather “with” COVID. That at least some of these people would have died anyway. But more important, it is increasingly obvious that there are serious problems with the testing for COVID. The initial tests were awful, where they put a q tip down your nose pushed it down far enough to test your stomach contents and then jerked it back out. Then the next day, you would get the result. Now they have tests that give results in 15 minutes. But are they accurate? We know that Donald Trump had a COVID test, which was positive, and the same sample was later tested again, and it was negative. Which test was right? If they can’t figure out whether or not the President of the United States has COVID, how can we trust the results. Add in all the athletes who test positive on Monday, negative on Tuesday, and are cleared to play on Wednesday. Did they really have COVID in the first place?

Then there is the hysterical shrieking about the Omnicon Variant. But the only way to test for a COVID variant is to do a genome sequencing test. The following article in the Ohio Times explains the problem:

Delta variants can be detected by genome sequencing – Ohio News Time

It obviously takes a lot of time and effort and specialized equipment to identify a COVID variant. Now they are testing a lot of samples, but it still takes three days and special tests. So how do we know that Delta spread so fast and that Omnicom spreads even faster? The answer was in the last paragraph:

Dr. Ameshua Darja, a senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Health Security Center, supports the Texas DSHS statement.


“For all purposes and purposes, if you are infected with COVID-19 in the United States today, you can consider it to be a delta mutant because it is the predominant version of the virus here. “


Let me translate: “If you test positive for COVID, even though the test clearly results in a lot of false positives, you are considered to have the Delta variant (now the Omnicon variant), even if the sample is not tested for the Delta or Omnicon variant, because that is what we expect.”

From the CDC website:

COVID Data Tracker Weekly Review | CDC

“*The median time from specimen collection to sequence data reporting is about 3 weeks. As a result, weighted estimates for the most recent few weeks may be unstable or unavailable. CDC’s Nowcast is a data projection tool that helps fill this gap by generating timely estimates of variant proportions for variants that are circulating in the United States. View Nowcast estimates on CDC’s COVID Data Tracker website on the Variant Proportions page.”

Translation: “We don’t have actual data, so we are guessing.”

Then anyone who dares hint at a problem is shouted down for spreading misinformation. My personal prediction is that we are surprisingly close to the end of the pandemic, not because anything has really changed, but because they are going to just stop testing everybody. Then, if they stop testing people, particularly people who have no symptoms, the sun will come out again. The NFL already figured this out and will no longer test NFL players who have been vaccinated and who have no symptoms. Sadly, they still refuse to recognize or even consider natural immunity, which is scientifically proven to be better than a vaccine.

The real problem here is that we rushed to develop tests and we rushed to develop vaccines and forgot the most crucial factor, to evaluate the results and make sure they are accurate. Instead, there was and is a rush to judgment based on questionable and sometimes hypothetical data which we are required to embrace as “following the science.”

I personally think if they stop testing people who have no symptoms, that the COVID panic would quickly fade away. If someone has symptoms, then test them so we know how to treat them. As of December 17, 2021, the number of people testing positive is 7.3% and most of them have no symptoms. 72.4% of the total US population has been vaccinated and 61.2% have been fully vaccinated. I think it is time to consider whether testing people with no symptoms for COVID is doing anything more than testing our patience when we should be testing our patients.



Donald Trump has announced he will hold a press conference on January 6th, 2021. The media is describing this as another attempt to push his false claims of election fraud. We can expect massive coverage of this event because the press just cannot look away. I do not know what Trump will say nor what evidence he will present but somethings are obvious. He has a lot more evidence than the MSM has reported.

One problem for Democrats, the MSM and the January 6th committee is that they have been repeating lies easily discredited. For example, they report that there was at least five deaths connected to the riots and more than one hundred police officers were injured. There were five deaths, most of them Trump supporters and the only police officer who died suffered a stroke, after the event. They continue to allege that many of his supporters brought weapons. As far as I can tell three people were arrested on gun charges. Think about that, three people. If you did a search of a Walmart on a Friday night you would probably find more guns than that. This does not excuse those who possessed firearms illegally but calling this an armed insurrection is and was absurd.


The other lie is that every allegation by Trump regarding election fraud has been discredited. That it not true. Sadly, the truth is that most of them were never investigated, by congress, by the courts, by the DOJ, by the MSM, even by the RNC. This is like someone standing on the shore, with a huge tsunami wave behind him, saying: “what wave?” Refusing to look does not mean there is nothing to see. Sometimes it only takes one person pointing the obvious before everyone sees it. One recent example was when an NBC reporter tried to pretend that the crowd behind her following a NASCAR Race was not chanting “F Joe Biden,” but rather “Let’s Go Brandon.” Even the winning driver, Brandon Brown, knew this was nonsense. So did everyone in the crowd and anyone watching on TV. The result is that “Let’s Go Brandon” has gone viral. This is so bad that one can easily cause insult with an innocent gesture. For example, I am a San Francisco Giants fan, and the two best players are the shortstop and the first baseman, both named “Brandon.” So, I have a hat that says “Let’s Go Brandon” which I wear in support of them. Incredibly some people had expressed concern to me that this hat may have a different meaning. When that happens, I politely explain the purpose of the hat and apologize if they have interpreted it differently.


Democrats are hyperventilating because Trump is holding a press conference on January 6th. They are doing everything possible to continue the myth of a Trump inspired insurrection. But the problem that they often are the ones either lying or deliberately misrepresenting things. Following is an example from Forbes, which used to be a credible news source:


Trump Plans Press Conference On Jan. 6 Anniversary To Rehash Fraud Claims (


The headline itself is a lie because it implies that Trump is just making things up. That is far from true, and that news conference has the disclose information that is beyond explosive. At a minimum, the MSM will have to respond to the allegations made by Trump, something they have refused to do up until now.


Numerous recounts have showed Biden’s win was legitimate and all court challenges failed. 


Actually, the recounts were merely retabulating vote totals with no effort to determine if the votes themselves were legitimate. Everyone knows that unless the vote total is extremely close there is zero chance any recount will change the results. But recounts are vastly different from actually investigating serious allegations of fraud.

One fundamental problem is that we insist on secret ballots, which means we don’t want to know how anyone voted. But, in this case, votes were counted but it is far from certain who cast those votes. There was massive mail-in voting, and the absolute refusal of Democrats to accept voter ID. That alone raises legitimate questions. Almost every poll shows that a majority of voters want voter ID, and they want more secure elections. Some polls show that an incredible percentage of people, who are not delusional Trump supporters, seriously question the results of the 2020 election.


82% of Fox News Viewers Believe Election Was Stolen: Poll (


While the usual suspect discount this poll, because they believe only delusional Trump supporters watch Fox News, it is actually stunning. It is important to note that while some Fox News personalities, such as Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson routinely question the election, others like Brett Baier and the now absent Chris Wallace did not do that.


This also points out part of the problem. The MSM would have you believe that FOX News only reports misinformation designed to appeal to delusional conservatives. Yet, while the MSM routinely has to correct inaccurate reporting, it is actually rare for FOX News to do that. Anyone who has ever tried to watch the reporting by CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, The Washington Post, The New York Times or any other MSM outlet instantly realizes that this is a classic case of the pot calling the kettle black. There are numerous times where the MSM deliberate distorted things said by Trump, including the ridiculous claim that Trump recommended people drink bleach to stop COVID. What is truly rare is reporting in the MSM that even attempts to be objective regarding anything Trump.


This is hard to predict, but people are really angry. Virtually no one has any confidence in Joe Biden anymore and the entire DNC increasingly looks like a train wreck, headed toward November 22 with no brakes and no off ramp. We have learned that for all his faults, it is never smart to underestimate Mr. Trump. There is a reason he draws enormous crowds and those who choose to ignore that do so at their own peril. January 6, 2021, was a date to remember. January 6, 2022, may be equally explosive.
