Fishers run for lives as Tongan tsunami
hits New Zealand, warnings continue

A New Zealand Civil Defence warning to stay off beaches was lifted just after 7pm on Sunday night due to reduced marine activity, but people were warned strong and unusual currents and surges could continue for another 24 hours. The advice for New Zealand beach and marine areas came after tsunami waves swamped low-lying areas of Tonga on Saturday following an underwater volcanic eruption. A group of people fishing in Northland’s Hokianga Harbour had to run for their lives early on Sunday morning as waves from the Tongan tsunami unexpectedly surged around them. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii, US, confirmed the eruption generated a tsunami late on Saturday night

Comments:

If it was bad in New Zealand, imagine what it was in Tonga. Nobody's heard from those guys for running on two days now.

The YT channel Mary Greeley News had some terrifying footage and still shots of this eruption yesterday. I cannot believe that there were idiots with their cameras trying to take footage of this tsunami and standing right in the middle of it. But then there were surfers taking advantage of the huge waves as well. Hubby calls it a cleansing of the gene pool. Prayers for the citizens of Tonga, this has to be terrifying for them and the survivors.

I noted that same silly, awkward writing as #1. A fisher is a fur bearing animal of the northern forests, a large weasel. Like a marten but larger. Fishermen are people who fish. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fisher_(animal) Destruction of a language for political reasons isn't a pretty thing.

Re #7....you've never been diving around barracuda or sharks if you say "defenseless fish". I can assure you that some of them are VERY well armed. As a matter of fact, one of my college roommates has a really impressive set of scars on both forearms where a great white did a 'taste test' on his hands and part of his arms when snorkling and fortunately didn't chop really hard, just cut all the muscles and tendons to the bone. He was lucky not to bleed to death, and many surgeries later, except for one little finger that doesn't work quite right, is pretty much OK....except for the really impressive scars.

Boats bashed into a quiet harbor in Southern California, a remote island was battered in Japan by four-foot waves and two women were swept to their deaths on a beach in Peru — some 6,000 miles from an undersea volcanic eruption so powerful that the tsunami it set off churned ocean waters halfway across the globe. But on Sunday, as reports of the volcano’s impact trickled in from far-flung countries, there was little word from Tonga, the island nation just 40 miles from the site of the extraordinary explosion. As concerns grew, the nation of about 100,000 remained largely cut off from the rest of world,

For a political hack supposedly steeped in the ways of politics dating from the days of the Partridge Family, Joe Biden sure hasn't learned much. Three days after insulting his congressional allies who opposed his bid to federalize elections as being on the side of "Bull Connor," "George Wallace," and "Jefferson Davis," he's now getting a wet mop in the face from his targets -- Sens. Kyrsten Sinema, Joe Manchin, and three other Democrats from swing states.

In a major news story, four hostages were freed after a standoff at a synagogue in Texas. The incident occurred a little before 10:40 a.m. local time, yesterday, when the police received a call about a gunman storming into the Congregation Beth Israel synagogue in Colleyville, near Fort Worth, during morning Shabbat prayers. The service that was live-streamed via Facebook was eventually taken down. The terrorist was heard on the livestream demanding the release of Islamist terrorist Aafia Siddiqui who was sentenced to 86 years in prison in 2010 for assault and attempted murder of a U.S. soldier.

The first images have started to emerge from Tonga a day after volcano eruptions triggered a tsunami, damaging communication lines in the process. Boats and boulders were swept inland and volcanic ash has left water undrinkable. The full extent of the damage is as-yet unclear as power outages and damage to the main undersea communications cable cut communications links to and from the country. Photos and videos of the damage in Tonga have started to filter through on social media, while the New Zealand government is yet to make official contact with the Tonga government.

Another Joe Biden calamity we've never seen before is now upon America. Piracy. We've got pirate problems now. Comparable to our border, our unguarded interstate rail trade is facing unprecedented robberies as its cargo moves to its destinations. It's literally being raided, pirate-style, by likely the same gangs that have raided retail stores with zero fear of prosection. Why raid a mere store when you can get the whole freight train of goods and get away with it? America's freight trains carrying goods are now under attack. The stunning report from a CBS photo journalist who went out to check a tip shows the picture of how bad it is:

For a so-called loser who's out of power and supposedly irrelevant, President Trump sure does seem to be triggering changes among the jellyfish who otherwise make up the Republican Party leadership. It's not just that candidates who emulate President Trump's agenda are doing well in elections, as did Glenn Youngkin in Virginia's governor's race, or those who yell about Trump are washing out. (Memo to Liz). It's not just that all of a sudden, congressional representatives and senators are deciding to stay in the House and Senate, as did Sen.

An awful lot of people are making a very dangerous assumption about the COVID-19 jabs: that the manufacture of them is pristine. Everyone seems to tacitly accept that every vial of a given jab is perfect and identical to every other vial of the same thing and that it is delivered to the injection site in perfect condition. I don't think so. Bad batches? There are press reports of localized clusters of bad jab reactions, such as a huge spike in stillbirths in Scotland. See here and here. Scotland is not the only place. The U.S. has the same issues in some areas. Japan had some real issues
Joe Biden's most disgusting, dishonest speech 9 replies

If you like dishonesty, and dollop after dollop of general disgustingness, Joe Biden had the speech for you. Here he was for his big Jan. 6 moment in front of Congress, denouncing his predecessor, President Trump, defending voter fraud, demanding more of it, and calling it 'democracy.' His speech was ultimately an argument for his own right to power, by fair means or foul. Andrea Widburg has an excellent piece describing the Academy Awards quality of the whole wretched specter here.

Congressional Democrats and their allies have been blowing a lot of hot air about the Jan. 6 "insurrection," a pathetic crowd-control failure brought on by Capitol police incompetence, crossed wires among those charged with security, and quite likely some FBI pot-stirring, through agents provocateurs. It's bee ess. The whole show is about discrediting President Trump to keep him from running for office in 2024, because, well, they know he won the 2020 election and a lot of voters would like to get their votes' worth in 2024. But that's precisely why they keep blowing the incident up into an "insurrection." According to leftist Rep. Hakeem Jeffries

Did the Twitter punks who banned mRNA vaccine inventor and bona fide vaccine expert Robert W. Malone, M.D. just set off the Mother of all Backfires? Kind of looks like it, now that they've drawn so much public interest to the man that they've apparently broken the Google algorithm for censoring stories about him. It started like this: Shortly after Malone was banned on Twitter, he did an long interview with bigfoot podcaster, Joe Rogan, arguing that the disinformation and repressed information on COVID vaccines was something resembling mass psychosis. That term, and related ones, created widely divergent results between Google and its biggest rival, the more objective DuckDuckGo search engine.

Get a load of this from Legal Insurrection: The Native American population in the U.S. grew by a staggering 86.5% between 2010 and 2020, according to the latest U.S. Census – a rate demographers say is impossible to achieve without immigration. Birth rates among Native Americans don’t explain the massive rise in numbers. And there certainly is no evidence of an influx of Native American expatriates returning to the U.S.

It’s official: Democrats are the biggest drama queens on earth. In 2022, Democrats will be faced with a very difficult problem. They have no issues and no accomplishments on which they can run successfully. By next November, the economy will be a political dry hole for Democrats as it’s very unlikely that inflation will ease, and chances are getting better for the double-whammy of inflation and a slowing economy. Domestically, their agenda is stalled and doesn’t appear to have much chance of getting through the Senate.

Interpreting the late civil rights leader’s I Have a Dream speech, Yellen said: “Dr King knew that economic injustice was bound up in the larger injustice he fought against.” In her comments, recorded for delivery at the Rev Al Sharpton’s National Action Network breakfast in Washington, Yellen noted the financial metaphors the Rev Martin Luther King Jr used in his address, delivered on 28 August 1963, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial

A judge in the state of Wisconsin ruled on Thursday that the use of ballot boxes in the 2020 election was, in fact, illegal. Joe Biden was declared the winner over Donald Trump in the state by 20,682 votes. Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Michael Bohren issued the decision in a lawsuit that had been filed on behalf of two voters by the Wisconsin Institute of Law & Liberty (WILL). WILL argued that the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) had unilaterally issued guidance to election clerks, authorizing the use of ballot collection boxes, in contradiction of state law. “The guidance from the Wisconsin Elections Commission on absentee ballot drop boxes was unlawful.

Citizens of the Old Dominion are learning that elections have consequences. Specifically, in this case, they’re learning that electing Republicans means returning to pro-American and pro-law and order policies.First, they saw Youngkin launch an anti-Covid jab mandate blitz that was paired with a series of executive orders that struck back at the mask mandates and CRT lessons pushed onto Virginia’s schools by the agents of the former, leftist governor.Now, they’re getting a reminder of what it’s like to have a real attorney general rather than a social justice warrior that crazy leftists like George Soros want in the AG’s office so criminals can be freed and law-abiding conservatives punished.
