Beach Report 5/16/21

Some unknown weed, common in the lawn lining the marina. It has pretty blue flowers in an interesting floret. Leaf Snap says Lyre-Leaf Sage (Salvia lyrata).
A Barn Swallow, resting on a dock line.
A clump of Blue-eyed Grass also beside the marina.

The clouds moved in as we got the to beach. We were expecting some rain.
Between Georgia and I we managed about 20 teeth. And the rain never arrived.

Election 2020: She's Gone!

Blessedly little coverage yesterday. Maybe the Washington media was off enjoying the lovely weather. 

On the ongoing Maricopa County audit, from PM, Arizona Senate president claims entire database deleted from election system, but I'm sure it was an accident, like Rose Mary Woods six minutes of tape. Nothing at all suspicious. From Sundance at CTH, President Trump Remarks on The Maricopa County Voting Result Database Being Deleted, Or Was It Always Assembled Off-site

PRESIDENT TRUMP – “The entire Database of Maricopa County in Arizona has been DELETED! This is illegal and the Arizona State Senate, who is leading the Forensic Audit, is up in arms. Additionally, seals were broken on the boxes that hold the votes, ballots are missing, and worse. Mark Brnovich, the Attorney General of Arizona, will now be forced to look into this unbelievable Election crime. Many Radical Left Democrats and weak Republicans are very worried about the fact that this has been exposed.

The DELETION of an entire Database and critical Election files of Maricopa County is unprecedented. Many other States to follow. The Mainstream Media and Radical Left Democrats want to stay as far away as possible from the Presidential Election Fraud, which should be one of the biggest stories of our time. Fox News is afraid to cover it—there is rarely a mention. Likewise, Newsmax has been virtually silent on this subject because they are intimidated by threats of lawsuits. One America News (OAN), one of the fastest growing networks on television, and the “hottest”, is doing a magnificent job of exposing the massive fraud that took place. The story is only getting bigger and at some point it will be impossible for the weak and/or corrupt media not to cover. Thank you to OAN and other brave American Patriots. It is all happening quickly!”

Stu Cvrk at Red State asks the entirely rhetorical question What Will It Take for the Legacy Media to Honestly Cover the Arizona Audit? There is nothing that can make them cover it honestly. Sundance provides the usual Arizona GOP Chairwoman Kelli Ward Provides an Update on Maricopa County Ballot and Election Audit

Sophie Mann at JTN recount how an Election audit in small New Hampshire town could have implications for 2020 results statewide "In tiny Windham, a November hand recount in a state legislative race revealed vote count discrepancies up and down the ballot — all benefiting Democrats."  But WaPoo has found voter fraud worthy of national coverage, Man charged with wife’s murder illegally cast her ballot for Trump, officials say: ‘I just thought, give him another vote’

On Wednesday, a freshman Republican used a House hearing investigating the attacks as a platform to compare the insurrection — which left five people dead, including a Capitol Police officer, and at least 140 officers injured — to tourists going through the building.

Later that evening, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) — whom some Democrats have accused of implicitly supporting the Jan. 6 rioters — stomped out of the House chamber and down the steps screaming at Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) about why she wouldn’t debate her on policy.

That prompted the young liberal star to raise the matter with security officials.

The incidents came as Democrats refuse to let Republicans who did not vote to certify President Biden’s election sign on to their bills. On Tuesday, Republicans took down a noncontroversial measure designed to fight opioid abuse because the lead Democrat refused to allow the previous GOP co-author a prominent slot on the legislation.

Way to Democrats, that'll show em! WaPoo also has a big article on the Jan. 6 incursionists,  A sprawling investigation: What we know so far about the Capitol riot suspects. I love this one: "Member of Super Happy Fun America, a Massachusetts based right-wing group" Sounds like a dangerous lot! At JTN, DHS offers $500k for public-private data sweep targeting 'violent extremists' in law enforcement. Meaning you know who. Anyone who disagrees with Democrats. 

As reported by Just the News this week, the DHS and the Department of Defense have announced internal investigations of "extremism" within their departments, raising alarms among conservative civil liberties watchdogs, as the agencies' notions of "extremism" were vague and appeared to omit from scrutiny far-left extremist groups implicated in widespread political violence in 2020.

Homeland Security to share harvested data with "peers, teachers, community leaders, and law enforcement" in "whole-of-society prevention" network.

Jon Solomon from JTN, FBI reclassifies 2017 Congressional baseball shooter as ‘domestic violent extremist’ From Da Blaze, after considerable brow beating from the right, FBI admits GOP baseball shooting was domestic terrorism after previously deeming it 'suicide by cop'

The FBI has "quietly" admitted that the 2017 shooting by a far-left radical who tried to murder several GOP members of Congress at a baseball field was, indeed, domestic terrorism, The Washington Examiner reported.

Last month, current FBI chief Christopher Wray was confronted by Republican lawmakers over the agency classifying the shooting as "suicide by cop" under a previous director.
What are the details?

The Examiner found in an FBI-DHS report released Friday detailing 85 "FBI-Designated Significant Domestic Terrorism Incidents in the United States from 2015 through 2019" classified the shooting at an Alexandria, Va., baseball field by a supporter of former Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) as "domestic violent extremism."

Fishing Report 5/15/21

Colonel Dziengeleski (aka Andy or Ski) had invited Tom and I on a fishing trip with two of his fellow officers with Walleye Pete. I heard that Tom and I were replacements for a 3 star who had better, or at least more important, things to do, and a best friend. If your going to be second choice, be second choice to the best.

The day started off cool, clear and calm on the other side of the world (the Eastern Shore). This is the CBF conference Center at Bishops Head, on of many places we stopped.
Fishing wasn't hot, but it wasn't exactly, cold either. We managed to extract a few Striped Bass ranging from tiny to mid 20 inch at nearly every point we checked, but never found a big slug of fish. It's the final day of "trophy season", and Striped Bass need to be 35 inches or longer to keep and we weren't expecting to find any.

Ski himself with a fine one.

But Tom took home the prize, the only keeper fish of the day, this 20 inch Speckled Trout.

Gone Fishin'

 But not like this:

Chasing around the islands for Specks and Rockfish with Pete, Tom, Ski, and a couple guys I don't know.

Rule 5 Saturday - From the Lipstick Jungle - Lindsay Price

For this weeks Rule 5 post, one of those faces that you've seen but can't put a name to, if you're like me. 

Lindsay Jaylyn Price (born December 6, 1976)  is an American television actress and singer. She is best known for her roles as Janet Sosna on Beverly Hills, 90210 and as Victory Ford on Lipstick Jungle. She is also known for her work on soap operas such as All My Children and The Bold and the Beautiful.
Price was born in Arcadia, California to William Price, an American of German and Irish descent, and Haeja Diane Price, who was born in Korea. Price's parents were raised together as siblings, as the Price family had adopted the orphaned Haeja from Korea after the Korean War. Kim Hae Ja and her biological brother were abandoned by their mother, who remarried after Hae Ja's father was killed in the war.

Weird, but not incest in any biological sense.  

In 2006, she co-starred on The WB television show Pepper Dennis, opposite Rebecca Romijn, in the role of Kimmy Kim. She appeared in the short-lived American remake of the British series, Coupling, in addition to singing the show's theme song, a cover of "Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps".  She guest starred in NCIS for two episodes as a neurotic fling of main character, Anthony DiNozzo. From 2008–09, she starred in the NBC drama Lipstick Jungle as Victory Ford, an up-and-coming fashion designer in New York City. She guest-starred in an episode of How I Met Your Mother and played Joanna Frankel in ABC's Eastwick, where she once again starred opposite Rebecca Romijn.

Price has also had a career in music. Price wrote and performed on a five-song EP entitled Someone Like Me, which was released in 2007


Election 2020: Insomnia Edition

Well, I'm up early before a fishing trip. Might as well do this. Toysmatrix: Dominion, Maricopa County Rebuff Arizona Senate’s Attempt to Get Election Machine Passwords

Dominion Voting Systems and Maricopa County officials are refusing to hand over passwords for election machines to auditors in Arizona.

Dominion said in a statement to news outlets on Thursday that it would comply with the audit, but Cyber Ninjas, the firm hired by the Arizona Senate to conduct it along with three other companies, is not accredited by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission.

“Releasing Dominion’s intellectual property to an unaccredited, biased, and plainly unreliable actor such as Cyber Ninjas would be reckless, causing irreparable damage to the commercial interests of the company and the election security interests of the country,” Dominion said. “No company should be compelled to participate in such an irresponsible act.”

Cyber Ninjas did not respond to a request for comment.
The Cyber Ninjas

Maricopa County officials previously said that they did not have passwords to access administrative functions on Dominion Voting Systems machines that were used to scan ballots during the election, according to the Senate’s audit liaison, former Republican Secretary of State Ken Bennett.

“They’ve told us that they don’t have that second password, or that they’ve given us all the passwords they have,” Bennett told One America News at the site of the audit in Phoenix last week.

The county is also withholding routers from auditors, claiming security concerns.

Both routers or router images and access to election machines were part of the materials the state Senate subpoenaed late last year. A judge in February ruled that the subpoenas were valid and should be obeyed.

Arizona Senate President Karen Fann, a Republican, recently threatened to subpoena county officials if they didn’t stop their noncompliance with the subpoenas, but backed off the threat in a letter on May 12.

Instead, she asked Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Chairman Jack Sellers, also a Republican, to cooperate voluntarily by attending an upcoming meeting at the state Capitol to go over the audit issues.

Fann said auditors have found discrepancies in the ballot count, including one batch that was supposed to be 200 but only numbered 165. She also said the audit teams found an entire database directory from an election machine had been deleted, and that the main database for the election management system software was not located anywhere on the machine, suggesting that the main database for all data related to the 2020 election had been removed.

 Via the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 05.14.21, Vox Popoli: Fake Election, Fake President

The Arizona audit has uncovered more evidence of fraud, sufficient to prove the statistical evidence that has clearly demonstrated how the 2020 election was faked:
According to the Maricopa Arizona Audit account, they are finding “significant discrepancies between the number of ballots therein and the batch reports included in the boxes”.
We already know exactly how the election results were faked due to the algorithm that was reverse engineered. The same ratio of nonexistent votes were injected everywhere, which is why the number of ballots in Maricopa, or anywhere, will not match the number of recorded votes.

And that's why there were 159,633,396 votes reported cast, compared to the 128,838,342 in 2016, 126,849,299 in 2012, and 129,446,839 in 2008. Occam's Razor indicates there were at least 30 million fake digital votes for which there are no ballots to be found.

When calling the other side racist isn't working anymore, AP, Democrats search for a strategy to combat GOP voting laws

They finally found the clear and present danger of right-wing extremism in the military, Am Mil News,  Marine officer is first active-duty military member charged in Jan. 6 Capitol storming. That was stupid. There goes his career. 

USA Today reported that the U.S. Marine Corps confirmed Warnagiris is on active duty, saying, “The Marine Corps is clear on this: There is no place for racial hatred or extremism in the Marine Corps. Our strength is derived from the individual excellence of every Marine regardless of background. Bigotry and racial extremism run contrary to our core values.”
And just what do "Bigotry and racial extremism" have to do with this? Twitchy, Keep your hands AWAY from his mouth! Matt Negrin LOSES IT babbling about House Republicans trying to murder Dems and GET THE NET. Reminder, the only person killed on Jan. 6 was a woman Trump supporter. Who killed Ashli Babbitt? Sundance at CTH, Anticipate Alinsky-styled Language “Insurrection Deniers” to be Main Element of Current Democrat Narrative
Promoting the January 6th protest in Washington DC as a “domestic terrorist” event; and promoting the protest as an “armed insurrection” against the U.S. government; is the cornerstone of the Democrat’s 2022 election effort. If we watch carefully now we will see an increased emphasis on attacking anyone who might downplay the Democrat narrative.

With their back against the wall on failing and catastrophic policy outcomes; with gas prices skyrocketing; and with the economy stalled due to inflation (ie. stagflation), the democrats are all-in with this “insurrection” narrative as a political tool to distract the voting population from merging crisis of bad policy.
. . .
The Democrats are counting on exploiting the false storyline around the Jan.6th protest. They will work overdrive in the next few days to attack anyone who puts that narrative at risk. Cue the example:
(The Hill) Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.) on Friday began asking Democratic colleagues to sign on to a resolution to censure three House Republicans who tried this week to minimize the severity of the Jan. 6 insurrection. . . 

And for those still following the Liz Cheney saga (I confess, I never really thought about or cared who the third in charge of House Republicans was before this):
