    Re: Firebombing of Dresden
    The Red Army had advanced almost up to that point by February, 1945. German lines were collapsing. The firebombing of Dresden demonstrated to the Soviets (right in front of them) what an Allied 1,000+ plane bombing raid could do and it conveyed a message: “Proceed no further east than Berlin”.

    “Lawyers in Love” – what a brutally prescient vision of what this nation has actually become. From 40+ years ago. Bravo, Jackson Browne.

    Re: Today’s Hopper –
    NOT a bartender. It’s 1926 and there was this thing called “Prohibition” (which didn’t end until 1933).
    Probably a shopkeeper. Perhaps even a Jewish one.

    The CIA had a busy three weeks getting their Vietnam policy sorted out in November, 1963.

    Presidents Ngo Dinh Diem and Kennedy were both assassinated less than three weeks apart.

    Here is what Ho Chi Minh had to say upon learning of Diem’s assassination – “I can scarcely believe the Americans would be so stupid”.[

    Re: John Day’s comment about Michelle Obama –

    “She” does check just about all of the DEI boxes, right?

    Zelensky is about to get the “Ngo Dinh Diem” treatment and then Zaluzhny steps in ala “Big Minh.

    I think professional wrestling is a better analogy than boxing – since it is all fake and everyone knows it.

    @ The Markster – There is a straight line running from 11/22/1963 to where we find ourselves today.

    The RFK, Jr. speech in the Tweet above brought this excerpt to mind.

    “At what point shall we expect the approach of danger? By what means shall we fortify against it?– Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step the Ocean, and crush us at a blow? Never!–All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Bonaparte for a commander, could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years.

    At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.”

    I may have posted this quote here before. Even if so, it is worth repeating.

    “Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never has and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both.”

    — Frederick Douglass

    CDC Director Walensky on the reduction of quarantine: “It really had a lot to do with what we thought people would be able to tolerate.”

    There is a golf course at Etretat with several of its holes laid out spectacularly right along the cliff. I was fortunate enough to play it once with a charming Frenchman named Gaby from Mauritius, who spoke absolutely no English. We enjoyed a couple of beers in the clubhouse afterwards with his wife. A fond memory.

    @Oroboros

    It’s beginning to look more and more as though the virus was released to warrant the use of the “vaccines” – not the other way around.

    If there ever was any doubt that we are ruled by a group of corrupt imbeciles and psychopaths, it has now been completely removed.

    I worked for Irving Trust in that very building for several years back in the 1980’s.
    Believe it or not, that narrow alleyway directly to its left is actually Wall Street.
