Redhead recently adopted two little manx cats: a brother and sister. they HAD to be kept together because the little sister was too frightened and fragile to be left on her own. Her big brother was there to protect her and his job was to keep her safe.

Well, that turned out to be a bit of a swizz.

Or, as we say here on patriotrealm.... a bit of a swoosh. Let me explain.

I do not know how many of you remember BK - a poster who always said hard truths.

I found an article he wrote back in 2020.

Well worth a read. Written some years ago and all too true....

The story of what became arguably Britain's last stand as a major global military power.

World history has recorded a lot of rulers who have attempted to use a small war to gain a popularity boost but overestimated the strength of their forces and reaped disaster instead of triumph. One of the clearest examples of this was the late 20th century conflict in the Falkland Islands.

In 2021, the government of Australia colluded with three vaccine manufacturers to oppress the Australian people with various levels of discrimination, coercion, propaganda, unlawful detainment, segregation, digital compliance systems and broader threats to individuals’ livelihoods. These totalitarian actions were not rooted in any data or science and provided no public health benefit. These actions were designed to break people down psychologically, to subdue their body autonomy and personal beliefs and force experiments into their bodies.

 New research published in The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) suggests that a novel form of monoclonal antibodies could be a safe and effective cure for cancer.

The results of the small trial are already being hailed as “remarkable” and “unprecedented” because all 18 participants are now cancer-free, thanks to receiving dostarlimab every three weeks for six months.

One of the patients is now two years out of the trial and still cancer-free, which Dr. Luis A. Diaz Jr., the study’s author, told The New York Times “is the first time this has happened in the history of cancer.”

Kiev claims Tolstoy’s masterpiece “glorifies” the Russian military.

Leo Tolstoy’s ‘War and Peace’ and other works that supposedly glorify the Russian military will no longer be taught in Ukrainian schools, Kiev’s ministry of education announced on Tuesday.

Americans today are once again the victims of price inflation brought on by runaway government spending and printing of unbacked paper money..

According to the most recent polling data, the American public’s approval of Congress stands at a dismal 21 percent. Almost four times as many people disapprove of the job it’s doing.

That’s par for the course in recent decades. It’s the major reason the Washington sausage grinder earns so little praise. To be fair, though, let’s review an occasion when lawmakers got something right. I’m prompted to share this story now because its lessons are especially relevant considering today’s concerns about rising price inflation. The year was 1875.

“And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.” (Rev 12:9 NASB)

As the world plunges toward the last few years of time as we know it, the ruler of the cosmos (the world) sets the greatest trap of all time. It is a Bible prophecy that cannot be altered or dismissed – it is pre-written history.

Politicians are inviting electricity chaos in Australia by promoting closure of coal-fired power stations, but also promoting more electric cars – more demand, less supply.

And Green energy is a wild bull in the electricity china shop.

If you believe in the tooth fairy, or vote Green, you probably believe that hydrogen is the magic rainbow gas that will banish global warming, replace wicked hydro-carbons in electricity generation, fuel tomorrow’s trucks, planes and heavy equipment, and earn unlimited export income.


There is one big problem – unlike coal, oil and gas, there are no hidden pools of hydrogen we can tap. Every bit of hydrogen has to be manufactured from water or hydrocarbons using huge amounts of energy.

The energy content of liquid hydrogen is about 70% of the energy required to produce it.  Burn it in a combined cycle gas turbine (energy efficiency 50%) and see that energy return drop to around 35%. Use it as vehicle fuel and see energy efficiency fall even further.


The density of liquefied hydrogen is much lower than that of natural gas - thus the transportation costs will be higher. And because the tiny hydrogen atom finds any small leak, the safety risks are very high - imagine a road accident involving flammable lithium batteries plus explosive hydrogen gas.

Most hydrogen is made directly from coal, oil or natural gas and the main process produces hydrogen and . . . more of the dreaded CO2.


But hydrogen is loved by Big Greens and little children because it has been named in a rainbow of pretty colours: grey, brown, black, green and blue.


Grey hydrogen comes from natural gas, brown from lignite (brown coal), and black hydrogen is made from black coal (no surprises there).


Green hydrogen is produced by electrolysis of water using intermittent green energy like solar or wind power. It requires heaps of fresh water and electricity neither of which can ever be fully recovered. Every tonne of hydrogen uses nine tonnes of water.

Blue hydrogen is any of the above but the CO2 by-product is stored in carbon cemeteries, making blue hydrogen stupidly expensive.

President Zelensky hopes to “one day” host the song contest in Mariupol, currently controlled by Russia.

Kalush Orchestra music band has won the Eurovision Song Contest 2022, after making a plea from stage to help save Ukrainian fighters holed up in Mariupol, and receiving landslide support from European public in phone and online vote.

Long before the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) was ushered in as a global plandemic, psychological terrorists from the United Kingdom were quietly invading Australia and New Zealand and manipulating their respective governments into setting up “nudge teams” to influence public sentiment about things.

 These days it seems that Saul Alinsky has taken over the Democrat Party. This is no longer the party of JFK—not even close. JFK said in his Inaugural Address, “the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God.”

There is no God, says Saul Alinsky (1909-1972), the Marxist community organizer par excellence from Chicago. He perfected many of the “by any means necessary” tactics the left is using today—tactics on full display these days in the wake of challenges to Roe v. Wade.
