    I wonder how long it took to mill just one of those conrod ends?

    • Darin says:

      Probably a couple days,they were usually milled out of solid steel billet rather than forged,so everything not a Conrod had to be removed from a solid block.And of course it’s not the machining itself that adds up,it’s the setup time.

      Because so many Republicans have as much to fear from anything like true democracy as the Dems have.

      So Session was a Deep State Plant all along…These are his true – the color green – the money is better in the Swamp. Whore. TRAITOR! Mark him down on the patriot proscription list. He will not survive the civil war.

        It’s a deal they have – we won’t investigate yours for criminal wrongdoing if you won’t investigate ours. This is where law enforcement needs to be politically independent and get this lawlessness, and corruption, out of American politics. It doesn’t look good to an outsider especially when the USA likes to promote democracy around the world.

        • Ronbo says:

          I agree.

          The American Republic has become the latter day Weimar Republic complete with Storm Troopers we call, “Auntie Fa” (Antifa) who break up political rallies of opponents of the fascist anti-fascist neo-Nazi government waiting in the wings to take total control of the nation.

          And as if this weren’t enough, we are following in the sorry example of the Weimar Republic in another critical area: The punishment of criminals due to their political connections with the New Nazi Party – also called “The Democrat Party.”

          Finally, there is the puppet master pulling all the strings in this takedown of The Leader Nation of the Free World (America) – One Barack “The Magic Negro” Obama – the black psychopathic racist Fuhrer in waiting only two miles from The White House.

          Yes, it’s impossible for him to return to power as president…However, I don’t think he wants to be bound by a constitution anymore than Hitler wanted to be limited by law.

          …and if the Weimer Republic is the example, he could simply order Congress to cede all authority to “The Supreme Leader” in an “Enabling Act” after a putsch in Washington, D.C. that seized control of the government-.

          Yes, constitution may still be in effect – on paper – but real authority would belong to Der Fuhrer Obama and the Fourth Reich of Amerika founded.

          SEIG HEIL!

          And Trump? He would suffer the same as the last republican Chancellor of Germany who stepped aside for Hitler in 1933 – Tango Uniform. Toes Up. Dead.

    Australian Soldiers in World War 2 singing Waltzing Matilda

      • Ronbo says:

        The “Death Before Dishonor” song because rather than surrender to the cops and go to jail for stealing the sheep, the happy wanderer jumps in the pond and drowns himself….So for Aussies soldiers to sing that particular song on the way to the front would steel the determination of the troopers even more.

    It’s been such a rich harvest of anti Trumpism since last November. So much to enjoy.

    My theory is that they had the spell book upside down. The binding spell became a Winning! spell.

    • Ronbo says:

      You can always tell when Trump sticks the knife deep into the guts of the Left and twists it, because they start to say and do the most silly shit!

    • Ronbo says:

      Reminds me of the repairs my younger brother made to my stuff after he always broke it doing something stupid with it…I wanted dad to dock him his allowance and give it to me so I could buy new stuff for replacement, but that never happened….Years later when I was in the Army and stationed in Augsburg, Germany when brother flew the Atlantic to visit me. He borrowed my six month old BMW sedan for a few hours – and wrecked it when he lost control going down hill on a curvy road too fast, however, this time he didn’t attempt repairs because he totaled it.

      Some people never change, heh?

    Teen who began gender transition at age 12 reveals why he decided to change back-

    “His mother, Alison, made the decision to give him puberty blockers before she allowed him to take her own oestrogen hormones when he was 13 years old.”

    ” Now Patrick is sure he is male, his mother said doctors were wrong to ‘pigeonhole him so quickly’ when he was diagnosed with gender dysphoria.”

    Okay,so why didn’t you seek treatment for the dysphoria instead of giving him hormones that have impacted him for the rest of his life????

      Ancient History Week – Questions


      “”””Fighting through the dense jungles of South America, the unlikely pair were seeking an even more unlikely goal: a remote cave system where, legend had it, they would find a trove of ancient mystical texts written on gold – and conclusive proof that aliens had once visited the Earth

      “Published in 1974, it outlined a theory that extraterrestrials visited the Earth in ancient times.””””


      Genesis 6:4

      “The Nephilim were on the earth in those days–and also afterward–when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.”

      Rev 12:9

      “And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. ”

      Revelations of the Pyramids


      Some questions are best left un-asked lad.

    Read the date codes folks-

    It’s partly the mother’s fault for not reading the date before feeding her child and partly Tesco’s fault for not training or checking up on their employees.It’s called residuals,or unsold inventory after restocking.It’s always moved to the front of the shelf while the new inventory is rotated to the back of the shelf.

    NZ elections are coming up…and Wabbit just sent this email to Winston Peters:
    “You just lost the vote of both myself and my wife, and I had previously signed up as a NZ First supporter.
    The reason is this article:
    Seems your privacy is important, but not ours. “These things can be computerised” you said, while declining to state when you last had a prostate check. If you think our details on any government database are private, Winston, I have a very fine bridge to sell you at a bargain price.
    The totalitarian urge is always just below the surface here in little socialist NZ, and I’m sad that you had me fooled, thinking you might be an exception. I’m sure they have all kinds of “good reasons” to trash citizens’ privacy in North Korea, too.
    Government’s relationship with liberty only ever goes one way, whatever weasel-words politicians may use to pretend otherwise.”

    • mawm says:

      Winston lost me when he touted raising the minimum wage by a significant amount. It was an out and out bribe of Clarkian proportions to get a certain sector to vote for him despite all studies showing that raising the minimum wage decreases employment and results in small businesses closing down. It also showed his socialist tendencies and disregard for the free market.

      This election is about keeping the little marxist tart out of power and stopping her CGT, donations tax, death duties and raising the top tax rates and probably GST as well. I’ll just have to swallow a dead rat and vote Nat, they are the least worst and the best chance to do so, ….and fight the TPP later.

      • KG says:

        I see Ardern still hasn’t laid out a clear tax policy and of course she has no need to, since hero-worshipping little tarts will vote for her regardless. She’s promising lots of “free” stuff and that’s enough for a whole lot of people. They have no idea of what will pay for it and they don’t care anyway.
        As for the Nats…..they’re captives of the business lobbies such as “education” for foreign students and propping up the real estate leeches at the expense of Kiwis. The necessary infrastructure will be paid for by the victims of their policies, not the assholes profiting hugely from them.
        Think Venezuela with a veneer of self-righteousness….
        All that voting for the hoped “least worst” gets us is more of the same with a smiley face and a different brand of bullshit.

          Ho-Hum ditto for America and the rest of the Anglosphere!

          Yes, the names of the players are different, the accents are different, the form of representative democracy different, the names of the political parties different, but the language of oppression is still English – and everywhere in the Anglosphere a Deep State Oligarchy rules against the Will and Permission of We The People – the rightful owners of our countries – and if we are not reduced to outright slavery, we are most certainly reduced to the status of serfs the Masters make jokes, mock and call “The Deplorables.”

          The Oppression is the same old English model of “Top-Down” tyranny as existed under King Henry VIII, where a few people on top command and control 90% of the population.

          Yes, they dressed up the tyranny in “elections” that are meaningless since the real power of states exists in the bureaucracy commanded by an oligarchy that hardly ever changes…

          Like the old 60s song goes, “Sitting on a sofa on a Sunday afternoon – listening to the candidates debate – laugh about it, shout about it, when you got chose, anyway you look at it you lose.”

    Heads up, Crusaders! The new Woodpile Report is published and as usual, Uncle Remus has found some interesting links which adds weight to some of the things I’ve said – for example – that Trump may rise to be a strongman like Julius Caesar.

    “Donald Trump didn’t risk all for the Iron Throne to let Goldman Sachs and the military run the show. He has allied with those power centers, but he’s calling the shots. Trump has allied with another power center: state and local police departments. He has given them fulsome, vocal support, encouragement to be more brutal, rescission of President Obama’s civil asset forfeiture rollback, and promises of more military gear. This is what one would expect of a ruler bent on consolidating his power—secure the praetorians. The Bill of Rights won’t stand in the way of sealing that alliance. ”

    The man says much better than me that the real struggle today is what type of country America will be at the conclusion of this Cold Civil War – The Oligarchy has tried and failed to stop Trump from becoming president and staying in office. He has moved to secure his personal safety and that of his family. Obama has already moved the presidency in the direction of rule by decree (Presidential Orders) and was dictator in everything but name. I predict Trump will build on that and if America sticks with the elective dictator model of government, Trump has produced a dynasty of potential presidents.

      Grandad on pop’s side was working on the farm and tending his own yard right up till a couple days before he passed at age 96 and even then we think he really died of loneliness after losing Grandmother a few months before.I can only hope to make it that far.

      On a side note, I haven’t seen an Oliver 1850 in years

    mere prettiness is now a “cultural wonder” :shock:

    Natural landscapes are not cultural artifacts.

      UNESCO=all about walling of human access to resources.They did it in parts of South America,where villages of people sit in abject poverty within eye sight of mineral rich mountain ranges that could support mining jobs and build wealth.Instead there is an “illegal” mining problem where local and UNESCO officials take bribes to look the other way.It’s all about corrupt UN officials and their local sycophants padding their nest.

    Intolerant deviants:
    ‘PoliticsNow: Gay marriage homosexual union advocates are demanding tougher laws on ‘hate speech’ to include sexuality and gender identity…’

    Of course it’s a push to make telling the truth about the negative mental and physical effects of homosexuality and gender-shopping a crime. But it’ll be sold to gullible fuckwits in the name of fairnesstolerancedecencyaompassionfluffyunicornsandrainbows….

    Ann Coulter: No Amnesty Is a Good Amnesty
    ‘President Trump is the last president who will ever have a chance to make the right decision on immigration.
    After this, it’s over. The boat will have sailed.
    If he succeeds, all the p@ssy-grabbing and Russia nonsense will burn off like a morning fog. He will be the president who saved the American nation, its character, its sovereignty, its core identity. But if he fails, Donald Trump will go down in history as the man who killed America.’

    • Darin says:

      Nothing will fix this except all out civil war and a massive blood soaked culling that will make the Civil War look like the fallout from a college frat party.

      • KG says:

        Concur. The only question that matters at this stage is; will it happen?
        Although I still think that very carefully planned widespread and selective targeting of key opposition figures could prevent massive bloodshed, especially if the targeting were to be compressed into -say- ten days or so.

  18. KG says:

    Wabbit would very much like to see honest and open discussion on this subject, from both sides of the debate.

  19. Ronbo says:

    Speaking of honest discussions – You do realize all of us have fallen for yet anther Big Media Lie? TRUMP DID NOT CAVE ON THE BORDER WALL! In fact, he gave absolutely nothing to the Democrats – however, the Leftist Media and Democrats went into overdrive in lying with the express objective of separating Trump from his supporters, because legalization of the “Dreamers” DACA and not building the Wall would drive a wedge between the Base and Trump.

    Nice try Lying Leftist Media, but no cigar. Nearly nine months gone. Trump is still president. While you shiver in your safe spaces in fear at night, the Right grows stronger by the day. And, yes, Snowflakes – we are coming for you!

    • KG says:

      I’m unconvinced. And absent concrete evidence to the contrary, I’ll stay that way. I’m done making excuses for Western politicians who play footsie with the enemy.
      Speaking of which, did you hear him mention islamist terrorism on 9/11?
      Me neither.

      • Ronbo says:

        Trump is on double secret probation with the Base…And me…Breitbart is pooping all over The Don today…Whatever…We both know this ends in tyranny – no matter what path the politicians take.

  20. KG says:

    ‘Why I’m Saying Goodbye to Apple, Google and Microsoft
    …Control is moving back to the center, where powerful companies and governments are creating choke points. They are using those choke points to destroy our privacy, limit our freedom of expression, and lock down culture and commerce. Too often, we give them our permission—trading liberty for convenience—but a lot of this is being done without our knowledge, much less permission.’
