Okay, spent last night in my easy lift chair. Bit uncomfortable, but worked out pretty good. Did tell wife this morning, the chair is old and thus not as comfortable as it should be. Maybe we should get a new one? Spent some time changing out pillows and blankets to find the best position with the best pillow.
Then bad news this morning. Wife called to see just when my wheelchair would arrive. It seems like, according to the person my wife has been dealing with, that no order had ever been placed! She told my wife, I could of sworn it was there yesterday. Anyways, it will thus push back the time when I will get a wheelchair to about a week! Good thing my wife called this morning or who knows when I might get one. I cancelled my oncologist appointment set for thursday.

First Woman in Space
June 16, 1963
Valentina Tereshkova flying a solo mission aboard the Soviet Vostok 6 becomes the first woman in space. This also makes her the only woman to fly a solo mission in space.
When asked how she wanted to be rewarded for her service, she requested that the government find where her father was killed during World War II. This was done, and a monument now stands at the site.
“This is no small thing, to restore a republic after it has fallen into corruption. I have studied history for years and I cannot recall it ever happening. It may be that our task is impossible. Yet, if we do not try then how will we know it can’t be done? And if we do not try, it most certainly won’t be done. The Founders’ Republic, and the larger war for western civilization, will be lost.”
“But I tell you this: We will not go gently into that bloody collectivist good night. Indeed, we will make with our defiance such a sound as ALL history from that day forward will be forced to note, even if they despise us in the writing of it.”
Conditions continue to deteriorate, casualties of the experimental drug mount unreported . . . fake presidents, enemies in high places, fake vaccines for fake epidemics; Flag day (Yesterday) goes generally unobserved, today the 246th anniversary of the US Army, presently being purged of Patriots in favor of pansies; America’s honor, history and tradition besmirched and held up to ridicule; 200 pound men competing against 100 pound girls in sports; the flood of Abortions unabated; half the country stoned on some drug or other, Lies, lies and more lies, the patient is terminal . . . the Fourth of July and Bastille Day are visible on the horizon. If we are to salvage anything from this wreck, we’d damn well be about it SOON.
And no, the Audits will not change anything.
A federal judge Thursday afternoon suspended a loan forgiveness program that issues relief to farmers and agricultural workers of color.
Judge William Griesbach of Wisconsin’s Eastern District handed down a temporary restraining order after the conservative Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty (WILL) filed a lawsuit in April. The group alleged in its announcement that President Joe Biden’s relief program was unconstitutional and that white farmers should have been included in the loan program.
While the Democrats continue to pursue an endless lawfare campaign against former President Trump, their confederates in the corporate media are calling for the excommunication of Republicans from American politics. Indeed, they insist that the party of Lincoln now consists primarily of delusional members of the “Trump cult” whose continuing presence in the public square constitutes a clear and present danger to the republic. As MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell expressed it Wednesday evening, “53 percent of Republicans fail a basic mental competency test question, who is the president of the United States.” O’Donnell’s view is metastasizing in the media. Jennifer Rubin passes judgment as follows in the Washington Post:
There is no way to “understand” MAGA voters, nor is there is any possibility of reaching political agreement with them. They are beyond the bounds of rational political debate. Those who comprehend how dangerous such delusions are in a democracy must break away from them, not enable them to win elections.
Charles P. Pierce parrots this theme in Esquire:
There is no longer any reason to try to “understand” these people. Nor should there be any compunction about doing whatever we can to read them out of American politics … They should be considered anathema, as should the entire Republican Party and the modern conservative movement that animates it.
These tirades were part of an avalanche of opprobrium from the commentariat pursuant to the latest Reuters/Ipsos poll showing that a majority of Republicans believe the 2020 general election was characterized by rampant corruption. Fully 56 percent think that “illegal voting or election rigging” produced an illegitimate result, and 53 percent believe that the actual winner of the presidential election was Donald Trump. People like O’Donnell, Pierce, and Rubin profess to be surprised by this poll, despite similar findings by numerous surveys conducted over the past six months. As far back as November 9 of last year, a Politico/Morning Consult poll found that 70 percent of Republicans were skeptical of the election results.
After several more polls produced similar responses, the “Big Lie” narrative emerged and became ubiquitous throughout the media. This claim that all doubts about the conduct and results of the election sprang from Trump’s “seditious” rhetoric serves two purposes: It enables the media to make sly comparisons between Trump and Hitler while portraying his supporters as racist, homophobic, sexist Brownshirts. Such people, the narrative goes, are by definition unfit to participate in a civilized democratic process, and it has now become the duty of every conscientious journalist to shame them into submission. The following hysterics from Ryan Cooper at the Week are the inevitable result of this kind of nonsense:
