Thought for the day

"All the time—such is the tragi-comedy of our situation—we continue to clamour for those very qualities we are rendering impossible… In a sort of ghastly simplicity we remove the organ and demand the function. We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful." -- C.S. Lewis, The Abolition of Man

She’s getting her joys from the great beyond.

Joy Behar shocked “The View” when she revealed that she’s “had sex with a few ghosts” while the panelists were discussing footage of a woman who claimed to have “sexual ghosts” in her home.

“If you have sex with a ghost, can you get pregnant?” Sara Haines asked.

“I’ve had sex with a few ghosts and never got pregnant,” Behar revealed — to the surprise of everyone.

FILE - A voter fills out a ballot during the Pennsylvania primary election at the Michaux Manor Living Center in Fayetteville, Pa., May 17, 2022. As the 2022 midterm elections enter their final two-month sprint, leading Republicans concede that their party's advantage may be slipping even as Democrats confront their president's weak standing, deep voter pessimism and the weight of history this fall. - Sputnik International, 1920, 16.11.2022

While polls projected a major red wave for the recent midterms, the vote showed different results. Democrats managed to maintain narrow control over the Senate, while the lower chamber majority is projected to go to Republicans - but only by a small margin.

Sputnik discussed the intricate details of the past midterm elections with Patrick Basham, head of Democracy Institute, a politically independent research organization based in Washington and London.

Sputnik: US bipartisan observers suggest that the expected "red wave" has not materialized. Would you agree that the Republicans "underperformed"?

Patrick Basham: In terms of voting, the red wave materialized exactly as we predicted. Our final Democracy Institute/Express.co.uk poll forecast the Republicans would win the popular vote by five percent. The Election Day exit poll also found a five percent win by the Republicans. With ballots still being counted in several western states, the Republicans popular vote lead is fluctuating between four and five percent.

Deflection Queen At It Again: Jen Psaki Makes A PATHETIC Attempt To Defend Biden

Former White House press secretary Jen Psaki is trying her best to deflect away from the advanced age of President Biden.

Many are concerned about his age and mental capacity at this stage. However, Psaki tried to counter that by calling Donald Trump old. For the record, Donald Trump is a few years younger than Joe Biden.

Biden is already the oldest President in American history and will be 82 years old on Inauguration Day 2025. Biden continues to insist that he intends to run for re-election despite the concerns of many people within his party.

Atomic Weapons Were Not Needed to End the War or Save Lives

Like all Americans, I was taught that the U.S. dropped nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in order to end WWII and save both American and Japanese lives.

But most of the top American military officials at the time said otherwise.

The U.S. Strategic Bombing Survey group, assigned by President Truman to study the air attacks on Japan, produced a report in July of 1946 that concluded (52-56):

Based on a detailed investigation of all the facts and supported by the testimony of the surviving Japanese leaders involved, it is the Survey’s opinion that certainly prior to 31 December 1945 and in all probability prior to 1 November 1945, Japan would have surrendered even if the atomic bombs had not been dropped, even if Russia had not entered the war, and even if no invasion had been planned or contemplated.

General (and later president) Dwight Eisenhower – then Supreme Commander of all Allied Forces, and the officer who created most of America’s WWII military plans for Europe and Japan – said:

The Japanese were ready to surrender and it wasn’t necessary to hit them with that awful thing.

Former US President Donald Trump’s son Donald Trump Junior has called for cutting off funding for Ukraine in the wake of the Polish missile incident.

"Since it was Ukraine's missile that hit our NATO ally Poland, can we at least stop spending billions to arm them now?" he wrote on Twitter.

On Tuesday, a missile fell in the village of Przewodow in eastern Poland on the border with Ukraine, killing two people. According to Polish President Andrzej Duda, it wasn’t a deliberate attack on the country. Warsaw explained that it most probably had been an S-300-like missile made in the 1970s, which had been fired by Ukrainian air defense forces. The Russian Defense Ministry branded claims by Polish media outlets and officials of alleged Russian missiles falling on Polish soil as provocations since no Russian strikes had taken place near the Ukrainian-Polish border. The ministry pointed out that the photos of the debris from the incident site published by the Polish media had nothing to do with Russian weapons.

Belarusian border guards have shot down an unmanned aerial vehicle intruding into the republic’s airspace from Ukrainian territory, the press office of the Belarusian State Border Guard Committee reported on Wednesday.

"Pinsk border guards spotted a quadcopter 100 meters from the Belarussian-Ukrainian border heading for the territory of the Republic of Belarus from the Ukrainian side. The incident occurred today, November 16, in the Kobryn district," the statement reads.

"The drone was shot down by an on-duty border guard squad from a Kalashnikov automatic rifle. The quadcopter was outfitted with a video camera and was used for conducting reconnaissance and surveying technical border protection facilities on the territory of Belarus," the press office said.

A preliminary NATO assessment showed that an S-300 missile that fell in Poland was Ukrainian, but it was not Kiev's fault as Russia was responsible for the incident, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said on Wednesday following an emergency meeting of the North Atlantic Council at an ambassadorial level on the incident concerning the fall of a Ukrainian missile in Poland.

The German authorities decided to nationalize Gazprom's former subsidiary Gazprom Germania. It changed its name to SEFE Securing Energy for Europe GmbH in June.

The German government will acquire 100% of SEFE shares and increase the company's loan to 13.8 billion euros, Bloomberg reports, citing a statement from the country's Ministry of Economy (it has not yet been published on the agency's website). In September, Spiegel reported on plans to nationalize SEFE.

Soon, the Ministry of Economy announced that the German government will acquire 100% of SEFE shares and increase the company's loan from the state bank KfW from 11.8 billion euros to 13.8 billion euros. A significant part of the loan must later be converted into equity. The state-owned company Securing Energy for Europe Holding GmbH will be used for nationalization, which will buy the shares of SEFE Securing Energy for Europe GmbH for 225.595 million euros.

When it was first published in 1949, George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four was a dystopian satire aimed at the left. In 2022, the novel seems to have become an instruction manual used by the left. For example, in Orwell’s satire the worst of all offences is thoughtcrime, the denial of official ideology and rebellion against the self-proclaimed wisdom and virtue of the state. The modern left have invented many forms of thoughtcrime to justify censorship and their own control. And the supreme form of thoughtcrime today is racism. In Britain, leftists have concealed and even collaborated with decades of organized rape and child-prostitution because the criminals are brown-skinned Muslims and their victims are White.

Rape is merely a crime against the body, after all. Accepting that Muslims – and other non-Whites – are much more likely to commit rape would be a crime against the central leftist principle of racial equality. But in fact that principle is routinely betrayed by leftists themselves, because they use what Orwell called doublethink, the “holding of two opinions” that cancel out, “knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them.” It’s a central principle of leftism that there’s only one race – the Human Race. We’re all the same under the skin, capable of exactly the same high achievements and exactly the same misdeeds. At the same time, leftism clearly acts on the belief that Whites are innately vicious and non-Whites are innately virtuous. Critical Race Theory demands, inter alia, that Whites be stripped of power and punished in perpetuity for enslaving Blacks, despite the fact that all races have practised slavery and only one race – Whites – ever sought to abolish it.

Target stores are getting looted, and it’s taking a huge bite out of profits.

The discount retailer told reporters on a call to discuss its third quarter earnings results that inventory shrinkage — or the disappearance of merchandise — has reduced its gross profit margin by $400 million so far in 2022 compared to 2021.

“At Target, year-to-date, incremental shortage has already reduced our gross margin by more than $400 million vs. last year,” Target CFO Michael Fiddelke said on the earnings call, “and we expect it will reduce our gross margin by more than $600 million for the full year.”

Fiddelke detailed how there are “a handful of things that can drive shrink in our business and theft is certainly a key driver. We know we’re not alone across retail in seeing a trend that I think has gotten increasingly worse over the last 12 to 18 months. So we’re taking the right actions in our stores to help curb that trend where we can, but that becomes an increasing headwind on our business and we know the business of others.”

Last Monday I received an email from NewsGuard, “an independent organization that rates and reviews news outlets based on nine apolitical journalistic criteria.”

The analyst asked me to comment on two statements in my columns in which I am accused of “advancing false and unsupported claims.”

One false and and unsuopported claim is “a March 2022 article titled ‘Ukraine Hosted Illegal US Biowarfare Laboratories,’ repeated Russian and Chinese propaganda about the presence of U.S.-run bioweapons labs in Ukraine, which has been repeatedly debunked by fact-checking organizations and refuted by U.S. government officials.”

The alleged “fact checker’s” claim that I made a false and unsupported claim is incorrect for two reasons. One is the fact that a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the Defense Threat Reduction Agency produced official US government documents that state that the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, a component of the U.S. Department of Defense, funded anthrax laboratory activities in a Ukrainian biolab in 2018. The US government’s records also show over $11 million in funding for the Ukraine biolabs program in 2019.

In July, Joe Biden’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, told CNN the southern border is secure. Of course, this was an outright lie and everyone knows it including Secretary Mayorkas.

Over 5.5 million illegal aliens have entered the US in the first 20 months of Joe Biden’s administration.

There are no barriers keeping out illegals and they are welcomed into the US as soon as they step foot into the country.

On Tuesday, after a week of counting ballots in an obviously fraudulent election where Republican voters were blocked from voting when they went to the polls, Blake Masters conceded his race to far left Democrat Mark Kelly in Arizona.

Arizona was a dependable red state until Democrats and secret sleeper Republicans turned the state over to mail-in voting, ballot harvesting, and broken and fraudulent voting machines, and election tricks by the communist left.

In his online statement, Blake Masters pointed out that he was outspent by $70 million dollars in his race.
