2021-08-01 Charles Johnson’s Top Twitter Interactions via Chirpty.com

Those are the twitteroids Charles Johnson interacts with the most, by “liking”, retweeting, and/or communicating with. Some unsurprising names on that list, yet some are oddly missing. So how many people blocked the magical jazzy ponytailed Twitterpest? (Hint: There are more than a few.)

    Charles Failure Johnson.

    • Bunk X says:

      He reads Greenwald with socks, then subtweets crap at him. Yeah, Jack allows some people to have multiple Twitter accounts despite being against THE RULES. @lizardoid is still live, but fuckface scraped it. Probably uses it for DMs only.

    • Octopus says:

      Congrats! Funny and interesting stuff. 👍🏻

      • Bunk X says:

        Some math errors in there. 2021 minus 2007 = 14 years, but it’s the 13th blogoversary or something. Brain is misfiring.

        • Octopus says:

          Your brain is fine. It’s the world that’s all tilted on its axis. Time is all screwed up. Why, I just got back from a “three-week vacation,” that lasted about one week, and then I see all these vacay photos of some gray-haired old geezer pretending to be me…and nobody in the family even notices! 😱

    ‘Member when Ayaan Hirsi Ali was an oft-quoted hero at LGF? Now she’d be blasted as a “virulent racist,” for opposing CRT.

    • rightymouse says:

      I doubt Fatso even understands what CRT is about. If his sorry white male ass was hauled into their court of hell, he’d scream ‘BUT I WAS ON YOUR SIDE!’ right before his head was chopped off.

      • Octopus says:

        “Eat me last,” he shrieked. But it was too late. They already had the biggest pot in the village boiling. “In you go, you enormous white matzoh ball!”

        • Bunk X says:

          And everyone in the village puked as the aroma of gamey buttocks filled the valley.

          • Octopus says:

            😂

            Then they dumped it out for the scavengers to get rid of, but even the buzzards and crows puked at the stench. Somebody got the bright idea to blow up the carcass with dynamite, like they did with a similarly-sized beached whale some years ago. Then the real hilarity ensued!

          • Bunk X says:

            Pieces of charred flesh and bone rained down upon the village for hours, dropping pale pink globs of entrails onto thatched roofs and cobblestones. Rot and stench overwhelmed the valley as the villagers left with their meager belongings stuffed in dufflebags and loaded onto wagons pulled by vomiting mules.

            Then came the rats.

          • Octopus says:

            😱😄

  45. Octopus says:

    https://amgreatness.com/2021/08/04/vaccination-weaponization/

    VDH dispels more Big Lies from the Idiot Left, about who’s really resisting being vaccinated. Me, I say anyone who won’t get vaccinated and prefers to roll the dice with the COVID virus itself, has made a choice and must live with the consequences. Just like riding a motorcycle without a helmet, except I don’t think the docs will accept any organs for donation if you happen to come up snake-eyes.

    • rightymouse says:

      My 26 year old son refuses to get the vax. But he may have had it already anyway. He was the one who used my toothbrush while sick with a bad cold over New Years 2019/2020 and gave me a bad cold in January last year that lasted for 3 weeks.

  46. Octopus says:

    https://dailycaller.com/2021/08/04/tara-reade-joe-biden-jen-psaki-metoo-andrew-cuomo/

    Psaki will say any damn thing, knowing the Idiot Left MSM won’t challenge anything. Thank God for the internet, and the relatively few conservative voices that survive!

    Also, to belabor the obvious, what moral authority does Uncle Gropey have to request the resignation of Cuomo? None. And Cuomo knows it. They’ll have to drag him out of the governor’s mansion by the balls, with tasers and pepper spray assisting in his perp-drag. And brother Fredo will be sobbing on the sidelines. 😂

    • rightymouse says:

      The visual of Fredo sobbing while Andrew is being dragged out of the governor’s mansion by the balls made my day!! 😆

      • Octopus says:

        😆

        • Bunk X says:

          The missus saw a clip of Don Lemon on Fredo’s show. Fredo said something like, “We’re not going to talk about my brother.” Lemon immediately jumped to the topic of nursing home Covid deaths in New York.

  47. Octopus says:

    I wanted to find out the source of the saying, “Ignorance is bliss,” a notion I’ve never really believed in. I came across this poem from 1747. Suffice it to say, I now understand the concept, and agree with the poet’s take for the most part. He’s talking about innocent children, unaware of the looming pitfalls of adulthood. These would be privileged children, of course – not the cruelly-neglected poor kids whose parents are too ignorant and/or weak to live righteous, responsible lives. Anyhoo…

    Ode on a Distant Prospect of Eton College
    BY THOMAS GRAY

    Ye distant spires, ye antique tow’rs,
    That crown the wat’ry glade,
    Where grateful Science still adores
    Her Henry’s holy Shade;
    And ye, that from the stately brow
    Of Windsor’s heights th’ expanse below
    Of grove, of lawn, of mead survey,
    Whose turf, whose shade, whose flowr’s among
    Wanders the hoary Thames along
    His silver-winding way.

    Ah, happy hills, ah, pleasing shade,
    Ah, fields belov’d in vain,
    Where once my careless childhood stray’d,
    A stranger yet to pain!
    I feel the gales, that from ye blow,
    A momentary bliss bestow,
    As waving fresh their gladsome wing,
    My weary soul they seem to soothe,
    And, redolent of joy and youth,
    To breathe a second spring.

    Say, Father Thames, for thou hast seen
    Full many a sprightly race
    Disporting on thy margent green
    The paths of pleasure trace,
    Who foremost now delight to cleave
    With pliant arm thy glassy wave?
    The captive linnet which enthrall?
    What idle progeny succeed
    To chase the rolling circle’s speed,
    Or urge the flying ball?

    While some on earnest business bent
    Their murm’ring labours ply
    ‘Gainst graver hours, that bring constraint
    To sweeten liberty:
    Some bold adventurers disdain
    The limits of their little reign,
    And unknown regions dare descry:
    Still as they run they look behind,
    They hear a voice in ev’ry wind,
    And snatch a fearful joy.

    Gay hope is theirs by fancy fed,
    Less pleasing when possest;
    The tear forgot as soon as shed,
    The sunshine of the breast:
    Theirs buxom health of rosy hue,
    Wild wit, invention ever-new,
    And lively cheer of vigour born;
    The thoughtless day, the easy night,
    The spirits pure, the slumbers light,
    That fly th’ approach of morn.

    Alas, regardless of their doom,
    The little victims play!
    No sense have they of ills to come,
    Nor care beyond to-day:
    Yet see how all around ’em wait
    The ministers of human fate,
    And black Misfortune’s baleful train!
    Ah, show them where in ambush stand
    To seize their prey the murth’rous band!
    Ah, tell them they are men!

    These shall the fury Passions tear,
    The vultures of the mind
    Disdainful Anger, pallid Fear,
    And Shame that skulks behind;
    Or pining Love shall waste their youth,
    Or Jealousy with rankling tooth,
    That inly gnaws the secret heart,
    And Envy wan, and faded Care,
    Grim-visag’d comfortless Despair,
    And Sorrow’s piercing dart.

    Ambition this shall tempt to rise,
    Then whirl the wretch from high,
    To bitter Scorn a sacrifice,
    And grinning Infamy.
    The stings of Falsehood those shall try,
    And hard Unkindness’ alter’d eye,
    That mocks the tear it forc’d to flow;
    And keen Remorse with blood defil’d,
    And moody Madness laughing wild
    Amid severest woe.

    Lo, in the vale of years beneath
    A griesly troop are seen,
    The painful family of Death,
    More hideous than their Queen:
    This racks the joints, this fires the veins,
    That ev’ry labouring sinew strains,
    Those in the deeper vitals rage:
    Lo, Poverty, to fill the band,
    That numbs the soul with icy hand,
    And slow-consuming Age.

    To each his suff’rings: all are men,
    Condemn’d alike to groan,
    The tender for another’s pain;
    Th’ unfeeling for his own.
    Yet ah! why should they know their fate?
    Since sorrow never comes too late,
    And happiness too swiftly flies.
    Thought would destroy their paradise.
    No more; where ignorance is bliss,
    ‘Tis folly to be wise.

      I do admit that there are things I found out that I wish I never did.

      • Octopus says:

        As Bob Seger sang in, “Against The Wind,” “Wish I didn’t know now what I didn’t know then.” Meaning, you wish the world had turned out to be different, not that you were an uncomprehending, oblivious idiot like Chonky, or a tree-stump. You know, there are people born with only the ancient reptilian brain functional, without any of the higher cognitive processes of the evolved brain, found in a normal medulla and the lobes. Rude scientists call these people, “stump-enders.” They can stay alive, with help feeding and caring for them, but they cannot think. Again, this brings to mind our poor lost Chonkster. 😢😆

        I’m adding, “Stumpy,” to the list of approved monikers.

        • rightymouse says:

          Am thinking of the time I found out my Dad was having an affair with the maid’s daughter. It destroyed a part of me that I really wish was still there.

          • Octopus says:

            Oof! Men and their awful Little Heads. I never had to deal with any of that cheating stuff, growing up, and I never cheated on my wife, either. A friend of mine said that’s because I’m not Alpha enough, and too insecure to handle the possibility of divorce. Okay, buddy! Having fun with your third wife, who has turned out to be the biggest bitch of them all. And how about those child support payments? 😂

            And now, back to the softcore porn and ogling girls young enough to be my granddaughters. Ladies and Germs, I give you “The Internet!” 😎😇

          • rightymouse says:

            I’m an Alpha female married to a triple Alpha man. We’ve been together for going on 30 years. We have 5 kids and 6 grandkids. They, and our extended family, are who we cherish in our Golden Years. Am sure you feel the same way about your girls. I consider you a loyal Alpha Male husband & Dad. Be proud! 🙂

      • Octopus says:

        But they can hunt, dammit! If you ever had a serious mouse problem, as farmers and warehouses do, you depended on their bloodthirsty nature. Some dogs are fine hunters, too, but it seems nearly all cats will leap into action with their sharp claws and fangs at the slightest hint of smaller-creature trespass.

        I just wonder how long that cat was watching the guy try to coddle that weak birdie back to health, while sharpening his claws with Mommy’s nail file. 🐈👹

    • Octopus says:

      The number of Dummycrats who expressed the same sentiments about the “Trump-vaccine,” and who are now feverishly and angrily demanding that EVERYONE get the jab IMMEDIATELY, is quite stunning. 😄

      I took a deep-ish dive into the numbers last night, and I’m convinced the anti-vaccination people’s Death Numbers are very exaggerated. Not that I trust the government junta, but I do trust my brother-in-law, who’s been deeply involved in the testing and administering of the vaccines since the start of this shit. More people die from car accidents than die from the vaccines, which have been administered to hundreds of millions of people. Of course there are a few bad reactions – people die from allergic reactions to almost everything, in relatively small numbers. You don’t want the Real COVID, if you’re immunity-compromised in any serious way. You just don’t.

      • rightymouse says:

        Your wife’s cousin died last year from COVID, right? IIRC, he had medical issues? My BIL & nephew had it, but very mild symptoms. BIL is in very good shape (works out) and my nephew is under 18. I do not know anyone personally who has died from COVID. Neither does my husband or our kids.

        • Bunk X says:

          Significant? Not in the big picture, but significant to the thousands of fatalities and their families:

          In her statement, the whistleblower said: “On July 9, 2021, there were 9,048 deaths reported in VAERS. I verified these numbers by collating all of the data from VAERS myself, not relying on a third party to report them. In tandem, I queried data from [Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Systems] medical claims with regard to vaccines and patients deaths.”

          Based on her analysis of the data she gathered, the whistleblower said that the true number of vaccine-related deaths as of July 9 is close to 45,000. This total is considerably higher than what was reported in VAERS.

          “Put in perspective, the swine flu vaccine was taken off the market which only resulted in 53 deaths,” she noted.

          • Octopus says:

            I don’t believe that site is trustworthy. That’s my considered opinion, and you’re free to disagree. This is still America.

            My brother-in-law has more personal and professional integrity than anyone else I know, and he was directly involved in testing the Moderna vaccine, to the dismay of his major hospital employer that was dead-set against doing anything that might “help Trump.” I could go on and on about his battles with corrupt and partisan political hacks, but that’s too much info to spew out right now. I saw this headline and story at ChemicalViolence, and this gem alone could have discredited the whole shebang:

            https://www.chemicalviolence.com/2021-07-07-moderna-rebrands-mrna-spikevax-spike-protein-factories.html

            Please. “Spike-protein factories?” That’s a laughable misunderstanding of the science involved.

          • Bunk X says:

            Very few sources are 100% trustworthy these days, and those that are aren’t either.

        • Octopus says:

          My wife’s cousin was 68, obese, had heart issues, and Type 2 diabetes. Smoked cigars daily. So, a walking co-morbidity case.

          Not so iffy was the colleague who died from Covid in the spring this year. He was only 54, and healthy from all accounts. He died in only 3 weeks of contracting the virus, and had been scheduled for his first vaccine shot the week after he got sick. That one really got me.

          • rightymouse says:

            Am curious. Did the virus infect your colleagues lungs? I apologize if this seem personal.

          • Octopus says:

            Yes, it attacked his lungs ferociously. He was on a ventilator after two weeks, and died a week or so later. Whereas, my wife’s cousin was on the ventilator for two horrible months. Ugh!

          • rightymouse says:

            Thanks for the info. It would be interesting to know what meds the hospital used to help him (zinc, hydroxychloroquine etc.) and if he was prone to lung issues when he caught regular colds/flu in the past. When I get colds/flu they tend to settle in my sinuses. Last year when I believe I had COVID for 3 weeks, I had sinus congestion and fever. So am curious.

      There’s video of Hunter smoking crack and fighting with his brother’s widow/girlfriend, but Stumpy goes straight to Don, Jr., despite there being no evidence whatsoever that he’s a cocaine user.

    Going out to dinner at a favorite restaurant for rib-eye steak. Yes 👍

    • Octopus says:

      I think I need a ribeye tomorrow, now that you mention that most delectable cut. I bought a couple of packs of them at Costco the other day, as they looked so juicy, thick and marbled I couldn’t resist. Froze one pack, and the other is awaiting my improving technique on the morrow. Baked potato, or roasties? That is a dilemma. Better sleep on it.

      • ISTE says:

        I like those baby potatoes. Years ago when I used to go shopping Walmart had packs of them the potatoes were about 1 inch in diameter. Expensive per pound but 5 mins in microwave.

        • Octopus says:

          I like the babies, too. But I love potatoes in every form. Roasties are my current fave, especially if they’re Yukon Golds made with duck fat. But…there’s nothing like a nice baked potato, a big one, with sour cream, bacon bits, maybe some diced chives for looks and a little flavor.

          • rightymouse says:

            I can do mashed potatoes. Several times a year, like Thanksgiving or with meatloaf. Small potatoes are for when I do corned beef. Otherwise, I prefer rice. 🙂

          • Octopus says:

            I’m wondering how ISTE, or anyone else, feels about the English dish called Mushy Peas. My Irish future son-in-law made them for us yesterday, and they were delicious. Putting them on my Comfort Food roster, straightaway.

      • rightymouse says:

        The rib-eye was fantastic! Perfect! 🙂 Dinner was extraordinary. Sitting next to us was a lady who was celebrating her b-day. Turns out she is a musician and plays in the same orchestra as hubby’s sister in Cleveland. You should have seen our faces! Small world!!

  61. Octopus says:

    The pics from the Redhead Festival in Dublin are quite stunning.

    Sez Stumpy, who had NOTHING bad to say about the months of destructive rioting, rape and murder from Antifa/BLM. Also, go straight to hell, you disgusting bag of shit.

  65. Octopus says:

    There are two trillion galaxies in the known universe, which is not really known at all. It keeps growing by leaps and bounds. Each galaxy contains hundreds of billions of stars. Each star, a bunch of planets. All of it is made out of the same star-stuff that we come from. And the entire thing, crazy as it may sound, is completely devoid of intelligent life besides the wacky world we inhabit. Does that make sense to you?

    • ISTE says:

      Yes it does. Although God does indeed work in mysterious ways there is no way that God would risk unleashing another Charles Johnson upon the Universe.

      Planet Earth is alone, and always will be. The risk of spreading stupidity into the vast and infinite void of space is too great.

    • rightymouse says:

      I’d agree with you except I’ve seen a UFO before when I lived in northern Virginia close to D.C. Whatever they are, they defy gravity and our knowledge of speed.

    Media hypocrisy.

    • Octopus says:

      Classic juxtaposition!

      The Orwellian state of modern America is startling to behold. How could one man be so right about so many things? People natter on about Nostradamus, but Orwell was as spot-on as Stumpy is way-off. The man knew the human race, and understood the political animals better than anyone, before or since.

      ———————————

      Now I will tell you the answer to my question. It is this. The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just around the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me.

      -George Orwell, 1984

    OAKLAND, Calif. – Hours after Sirmac Javius shared his painful experience of homelessness after he hasn’t received an unemployment check for over a year to KTVU on Friday, someone set fire to his 2007 Chevrolet Silverado.

    He had been living in that truck for the last several months after losing his job as a barber during the pandemic. He said he has yet to collect an EDD check, despite saying he met every eligible requirement.

    “That truck was my everything,” Javius said on Saturday, in disbelief at what happened.

    He has no idea if the arson was coincidental or random. But it occurred just a few hours after his story was broadcast to the public.

    All he knows was that after he was interviewed on TV, he got a call from his friend late Friday night to say that his truck, parked on 12th Street in Oakland, was on fire. He had left it there while he went to San Francisco via BART.

    Since he has been laid off as a barber, Javius, 48, has been living out of his truck, driving it to various day labor jobs, and to take a shower at Laney College. He said he still has to pay off $10,000 for the truck. He shared pictures of the now-damaged vehicle and he said he can no longer drive it.

    “I feel like I’m going crazy,” he said. “But I’ve got to stay strong.”

    He has no idea who would want to harm in such a way and he showed KTVU a copy of the police report he filed Saturday morning. He does have a criminal past, he acknowledged, but that was more than 20 years ago. People who are convicted of crimes are still eligible for unemployment.

    Javius’ tale is a heartwrenching one and is likely shared by countless other Californians.

    He has struggled to try to get anyone on the phone at EDD to help him with his claim. He said he has “certified” for payments, but for some reason, the state agency has not paid him any money. He said he has called more than 80 times and emailed about 50 times to get help. A human has picked up the phone, perhaps a half dozen times, in the last 14 months, he said. About six months ago, he said a supervisor told him that she’d forward his information to the right department to get paid, but that has not yet happened.

    The EDD’s latest data shows that roughly 3.5 million people called the call center during the last week of July, but less than 250,000 calls, or just 7% percent, were answered.

    EDD did not return comment by deadline to respond to these concerns.

    In the meantime, state Sen. Bob Wieckowski’s office has confirmed to KTVU that they will try to assist Javius to figure out why he EDD has not sent him his unemployment money.

    Now, the story so far is this poor homeless man failed to get his unemployment checks.

      This is the key

      He has no idea if the arson was coincidental or random. But it occurred just a few hours after his story was broadcast to the public.

      This burning of his truck came a few hours after a TV report about his homeless plight was broadcast. This is the initial TV report that put him in the spotlight.

      He admits he has a criminal record from ” a few years ago ”

      2001 to be exact.

      • ISTE says:

        Now, I wonder why he did not get his unemployment checks?

        Could they have been sent to the wrong person?

          My point?

          If you go pissing and moaning on national TV about the fact that your unemployment checks have not arrived and you had under age sex with someone’s son or daughter and served ZERO time for it do not be surprised if either the parents of your victim or as it is 20 years later the 30+ year old ( now ) victim finds you because of the TV report and sets fire to your fucking truck!

          Or the poor man’s truck may have caught fire accidentally.

          • ISTE says:

            And final part of this rant. Why did I even know about this unfortunate man’s plight?

            He is in California, This is Fox Houston reporting it.

            But not the fact he deserved to be in the truck.

          • Bunk X says:

            Great fact checking.
            California EDD is a mess with all the exposed fraud, like incarcerated felons applying for and receiving unemployment checks. The EDD went into crackdown mode and made it just about impossible to apply – I know this, I tried. SSI and CA Universal drivers license numbers with scanned copies and a new selfie aren’t adequate.

            Only two responses to the @Fox26Houston tweet. Nice job, @FactChe79059526 whoever you are.
