“Rob Henderson is a PhD student at Cambridge University studying Social and Evolutionary Psychology. He coined the term ‘luxury beliefs’ and writes regularly on Substack (https://robkhenderson.substack.com/). He is also a veteran.”

There is this concept among some progressives, that only the people immediately living a circumstance have the most right to talk about it [and everybody else should just “yield the stage”]…because you’re getting the most honest, accurate and unfiltered voices, to represent the real world lived experience.

In so many ways, and possibly because this same principle is never applied equally…it’s often bothered me to see it in practice out in public.

I have to admit though…I think it’s a decent concept…If “this” is not your life…then you don’t talk over the people who live that life…You listen to them, and learn from them…You actively work to empathize.

You respect them enough, to let them represent themselves.

“RECIPE
1 pound (½ kg) pork meat
Salt for seasoning
2 tablespoons (25g) Lard or another oil for cooking
1 ½ cups (125g) chopped spring onion, or leek
2 teaspoons brown mustard seeds, roughly crushed
1 teaspoon chopped mint
1 pound (½ kg) fresh berries
½ cup (120ml) water
½ cup (120ml) mead

1. Season the meat, then heat the lard/oil in a pot on the stove. Sear the meat for 5-7 minutes until well browned. Then remove it and set aside.

2. Add the onion to the pot and cook for 2-3 minutes, then add the water and mead and bring to a simmer. Add the mustard seed and mint and return the pork to the pot. Return to a simmer then cover the pot and place it in an oven at 325°F/160°C for 15-25 minutes or until the pork reaches 145°F. Then remove the pot from the oven and remove the pork to let it rest.

3. Add the berries into the pot with the braising liquid and cook on the stove for 7-10 minutes or until very soft. Mash the berries, then pour everything through a strainer. Return the liquid to the pot and simmer for several minutes or until the sauce reduces down. The sauce will not become too thick without the addition of starch (optional).

4. Slice the pork and serve with the sauce, extra berries, and mint.”

“You might not know it, but Pete Buttigieg is the nation’s Transportation Secretary and not just a guy on the government payroll who twiddles his thumbs and waits for Joe Biden;s senility to get so obvious that Pete can declare his next presidential run without facing blowback. As Transportation Secretary, Buttigieg has been monitoring the ongoing air travel crisis of cancellations and delays and announced that… he’s going to wait and see what happens. Just like he’s doing with Biden’s presidency!

Jimmy and American comedian Kurt Metzger discuss whether the so-called conspiracy theorists were right about vaccine mandates leading to the current problems with airline staffing.”

Why is this idiot even in government?…Based on everything I’ve seen concerning him, he has absolutely no business being there.

Biden Appoints Enemy Of Social Security To Social Security Advisory Board…

“Joe Biden has appointed Andrew Biggs to the government’s Social Security Advisory Board. Despite claiming he’s changed his mind, Agee has a lengthy record of supporting privatization of Social Security, means testing, and other measures designed to weaken the program – bearing in mind that Social Security is the most popular and successful government program in history at reducing poverty, in particular among the nation’s elderly. Yet this appointment suggests that Biden himself has not abandoned his long-held belief in “reforming” Social Security.

Jimmy and American comedian Kurt Metzger discuss Joe Biden’s lengthy history of seeking to undermine and privatize Social Security.”
