Coronado Bridge drive and Tidelands Park

Good evening everybody, tonight’s post is just about the most recent photos and videos I took from the Coronado Bridge and Coronado Tidelands Park on the eastern side of the island. The ride up and down the Coronado Bridge is awe inspiring and quite beautiful at all times of the day and is well worth your time if you ever pass through San Diego. Bridge traffic to and from Naval Base Coronado can be terrible from about 0500-0800 and 1500-1800 on a weekday so be sure to avoid the bridge at those times. The Coronado Tidelands Park is a quite and calming place to spend the afternoon and I’ll have to take my bicycle and explore island and Silver Strand in a more personal way. I’ll leave a few photos below and you can enjoy the rest of them on the dedicated page here!

Toyota Tundra 5.7L engine oil analysis results

A few weeks ago I typed up a post about drawing an engine oil sample from the 3UR-FE in my Tundra and just got the results back a few days ago. It would seem that all is well with my ten year old engine that has 111,000 miles on it even with all of the off-road and idle use I put the truck through. I also had the Total Base Number determined for an additional $10 with a total price of $38 for this oil analysis. The oil analysis seems to be a good way of finding problems prior to a catastrophic failure and I may have these tests performed on my transmission and differential oil as well. I would highly recommend the services of Blackstone Laboratories to everyone.

Mister Metokur watches a Cuckumentary – State of Degeneracy

I recently stumbled across two very insightful videos that she some light on where Western Civilization is at and where it may end up in the near future. The two videos that I’m embedding in this post are simply amazing and as with many such posts there is very little that I could add to the commentary. How should I even feel about what is displayed in the following videos? Sad? Angry? Confused? Maybe I should just get a good laugh out of this…

The first video is rather short:

The second video has a very unexpected ending. This one is worth watching all of the way through:

The previous channel that hosted the video was deleted but I managed to find another copy:

 

“I am not delusional” ~ Stacey Abrams 2019

Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has a message for Republicans and anyone else to the right of Saul Alinsky: “I am not delusional. I know I am not the governor of Georgia – possibly yet.” What a strange and totally non-delusional statement for this woman to make. Just remember guys, voter fraud isn’t real and RethugliKKKans only win because of “voter suppression.” Another sanguine observation from Ms. Abrams at here recent Houston jaunt:

They are trying to erase our democracy, corrode it so much so that we stop believing in it. Because they know that that’s the only way to hold onto the power they have.

Yes, Herr Drumpf and his supporters are tearing the country apart and the Democratic Party is doing nothing but bringing the republic closer together. I’m pretty certain that everyone reading this understands what delusional means, but let’s take a look at the exact definition:

adjective
  1. characterized by or holding idiosyncratic beliefs or impressions that are contradicted by reality or rational argument, typically as a symptom of mental disorder.
    “hospitalization for schizophrenia and delusional paranoia”
    • based on or having faulty judgment; mistaken.
      “their delusional belief in the project’s merits never wavers”

     

Let’s look back at what the Democrats think of those who don’t accept election results:

Never forget folks, voter fraud isn’t real…

TTCF

A strong, independent woman who don’t need no man. Stunning and brave…

It looks like the Democrats are a little bit salty about losing elections and “history” not bending to their arc. Let’s take a look at a few recent stories, the first in Elmwood Park, NJ. It seems that Democratic Mayor Francesco Caramanga has actually resigned for filling out the ballots of registered voters. For our next example of non-existent voter fraud let’s move over to a different corner of the country:

The Texas Attorney General is accusing Mayor Richard Molina of directing voters to change their addresses to residence that they did not live in to include some of the Mayor’s former campaign staff:

According to a news release from the attorney general’s office, Molina directed voters to change their addresses to places where they did not live — including an apartment complex owned by Molina — so they could vote for him. Molina, hailed as an “anti-establishment” outsider, won the election by 1,240 votes, unseating incumbent Mayor Richard Garcia in the South Texas town.

A total of 18 people have been arrested in connection with the scheme, according to the attorney general’s office.

If you believe that the dead never vote from beyond the grave, then don’t read this story from CBS Los Angeles that found several hundred dead people continued to cast ballots for their favorite candidate year after year.

‘He took a lot of time choosing his candidates,’ said Annette Givans of her father, John Cenkner.

Cenkner died in Palmdale in 2003. Despite this, records show that he somehow voted from the grave in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2010.

But he’s not the only one.

CBS2 compared millions of voting records from the California Secretary of State’s office with death records from the Social Security Administration and found hundreds of so-called dead voters.

If you ever decide to think that voter fraud might be real, just stop thinking. It’s just a coincidence, don’t believe your own lying eyes. If you don’t look for it, it just doesn’t exist right?

Toyota Tundra filter and lube oil changes

Good evening everybody, today I recently replaced the engine air filter, cab air filter, engine oil and filter, and gear oil from both differentials. I will be sending the engine oil sample to Blackstone Laboratories for analysis and early detection of any possible problems prior to a catastrophic (and more expensive) failure. Blackstone is even nice enough to send you the kits for free, they just won’t actually give you your results until you pay the $28 fee. I’ll be sure to show off my engine analysis results when I get a response in one to four weeks. I’ll also be posting some photos of the used filters and differential drain plug magnets below along with mileage change intervals.

First of we’ll start with the rear differential gear oil (last changed about 10,000 miles ago):

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I took images with and without a flash of the drain plug and what I wiped off of it with the shop towel. No water came out and there weren’t too many wear products on the magnet. Gear oil never really smells great though…

Next up, let’s look at the front differential (last changed 10,000 miles ago):

The truck is normally in rear-wheel drive so the front differential put very little on the magnet and the oil looked almost new.

Let’s move onto the engine air filter (once again, 10,000 miles):

All of those desert trail miles made themselves very well known with all of the dust I beat out of the filter. The cabin air filter told a similar story:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Last but not least let’s talk about my engine oil sample and draining the filter. When you buy a new filter from Toyota for the 5.7L you receive a drain plug to push into a valve in the filter housing. It always takes a little time for me to get it in their right but it’s much better than just yanking off the filter housing and having oil go everywhere.

I pulled a big-brained move and almost let all of the oil drain out of the pan before remembering to grab my sample bottle. Here’s what the kit looks like after you remove the packaging and take the sample:

I opted to type and print my oil slip rather than writing on the supplied paper to avoid any penmanship issues. The recommended oil sampling procedure may be found on Blackstone’s website but they’re fairly simple. As I said before I’ll be sure to report back on my engine oil results. That’s all for now folks!

 

Mojave Desert Camping Trip – March 2019

In early March I went to the Mojave Desert for a weekend camping trip with a small group of friends. The majority of the group started the trip in the Johnson Valley area and headed north towards camp where I met up with them at night (Friday). One member of our group flopped onto his side in the afternoon prior to my arrival and another truck showed up on the morning on the second day. We drove through the Soda “Dry” Lake, fooled around the Cinder Cones, spent some time beating up our suspensions on whoops, and camped out in the New York Mountains on Saturday night. A good time was had by all. Enjoy the photos and find the rest of them on the dedicated page and Tundras.com!

 

No One’s Ever Really Gone

The Star Wars Episode IX teaser trailer just came out and boy am I amazed at how invested the fanboys are into what has become a soulless Disney product. I don’t get the reaction videos that I’ve watched. There are a lot of good movies out there that I really enjoy but I don’t understand crying to a teaser trailer where people that you thought were dead come back to life. What can I really say about Star Wars that others haven’t already said in a far superior manner? I believe that I can allow the following videos and images speak for themselves…

How soy-filled can one man be?

I feel as though Mister Metokur has a pretty good take on the preceding man-baby:

NPCs of Society – Player

I found a wonderful parody song entitled NPCs of Society while blissfully scanning YouTube for hilarious content. If you search around for it you’ll find a couple of different mirrors for it but I decided to upload a version with some memes to my own site to reduce the chances of it getting deleted. I have written a post previously about the NPC meme and the inability of leftists to find humor in it but I just felt the need to dedicate a post to this song. Enjoy!

Slow Joe Biden gets the #MeToo treatment

Another day passes, another Democratic politician falls to the pound-me-too crowd in the form of former Vice President Joe Biden being accused of sexual harassment/assault. The alleged victim is one Lucy Flores, a Democratic candidate for Nevada Lieutenant Governor at the time of the incident in question during 2014. Ms. Flores penned an article in the New York magazine entitled “An Awkward Kiss Changed How I Saw Joe Biden” where she details an encounter with Slow Joe Biden at a campaign rally in Las Vegas. Let’s take a look at Ms. Flores’ account now:

Just before the speeches, we were ushered to the side of the stage where we were lined up by order of introduction. As I was taking deep breaths and preparing myself to make my case to the crowd, I felt two hands on my shoulders.

Oh man, what comes next:

I froze. ‘Why is the vice-president of the United States touching me?’

It keeps going:

I felt him get closer to me from behind. He leaned further in and inhaled my hair. I was mortified. I thought to myself, ‘I didn’t wash my hair today and the vice-president of the United States is smelling it. And also, what in the actual fuck?’

If he just put a hand on her shoulder or something innocuous this would not be a problem, but we’re talking Joe Biden here:

He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head. My brain couldn’t process what was happening. I was embarrassed. I was shocked. I was confused.

I wonder what Biden considers out of bounds?

I couldn’t move and I couldn’t say anything. I wanted nothing more than to get Biden away from me. My name was called and I was never happier to get on stage in front of an audience.

After that Ms. Flores goes onto complain about white people, privilege, racism, and other social justice talking points. But it’s not really a secret that former Vice President Biden is a lecherous creeper who can’t keep his hands off of any woman near him (no matter what the age). Given the current state of the Democratic Party, the photographic and video evidence of Biden’s degeneracy, and the fact that he’s white it seems that there’s less and less room for Joe Biden in the bloated 2020 Democratic Presidential field. Anyone who thought that Biden would moderate the Democratic Party in the run-up to the election is dreaming and Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren has already turned on him. Time is short until other candidates pull the knives out on Biden.

I’ll embed some pictures and links below, but I have to ask one question of the leftist media complex: Why didn’t any of you point out or question Biden’s obvious lewd behavior during the term of President Obama? Maybe I should do a poll on who looks the most uncomfortable while being loved by Joe Biden…

I think that this little girl looks the most distressed:

Rachel Madcow is sad…

Rachel Maddow is sad and distraught about Mueller’s report and lack of desire for indictments related to conspiracy theories. She’s sad that President Trump is still her President and isn’t going to be impeached anytime soon. She’s sad that President Trump didn’t “collude” with Russian Internet trolls and other components of the “vast right-wing conspiracy.” Rachel wants to know the truth and thinks that the whole country seems to see things with her distorted perspective. It’s almost as though Rachel Madcow has spewed lies, inanity, and conspiracy theories for so long that she actually believes her own invective now. Honestly, this is just sad. Watch:

Perhaps her viewership will fully collapse and she’ll have to “learn to code”? A man can dream right? Rachel and her fellow peddlers journalists should also get mad at the Internet while they’re at it. But they’ll probably hold onto a vain hope of impeaching President Trump instead of doing something useful. I’m sure that any month year decade day the Democratic Party and their media adjuncts will take down President Trump.

postscript: As one investigation goes into the dustbin another rises up in the Ukraine about Hillary. But of course, the galaxy-brains over at the Washington Post can’t take any hits back at their side.
