How to “back up” a blog?

Hearing that WordPress has de-platformed ConservativeTreehouse made me think about my own WordPress blog at RushBabe49.com.  How might I “back up” my 10-year-old blog, in case they come for me too?  Now, my presence is way lower than theirs-I only have 433 followers and get about 80 views per normal day (which I would really like to increase!).  Is there any way to save all my posts and photos, short of copying all the text to a file on my new 6Tb external hard drive?  I post photography as well as politics, so my followers aren’t just political junkies.  I do, of course, have all the photos on my home computer already.

Any ideas for me?  Thanks!

This Week’s Book Review – 1637: No Peace Beyond the Line

Looking for a good read? Here is a recommendation. I have an unusual approach to reviewing books. I review books I feel merit a review. Each review is an opportunity to recommend a book. If I do not think a book is worth reading, I find another book to review. You do not have to agree with everything every author has written (I do not), but the fiction I review is entertaining (and often thought-provoking) and the non-fiction contain ideas worth reading....

Technological Breakthroughs

In the “Suckers-R-Us” thread, we wandered off into a discussion about technology.  John Walker posed a thought-provoking question:  “But what’s the last significant technological breakthrough you saw coming from the U.S.?”

Scratching my head about this, I came up with 3 examples:... [Read More]

Before We Go – Amazon Book-Banning

When I learned that Evil Amazon had banned a book, I of course had to buy a copy to find out from what Amazon was protecting our fragile minds.  I paid an unsuccessful visit to AbeBooks – forgetting that in this highly competitive world Abebooks is owned by … Amazon.  Now my dander was up!  OK, it is possible to buy the book directly from: https://www.texemarrs.com/

The book in question is by James Perloff, “Covid-19 and the Agendas to Come”, ISBN 978-0-9668160-4-4, published by Refuge Books.  So what is the fuss about?  What does Evil Amazon not want us simple-minded easily-confused people to see?... [Read More]

A more perfect union.

OK, now I am thinking that unless Trump’s legal challenges overturn this horrible state of affairs, I am ready to begin thinking about secession and how to re-form an American remnant without the Blue Cities.

They would not be a viable entity on their own.  Do we have to abandon our rural brothers in the blue states in order to form a more perfect union?

Caligula’s Horse

OK, we need something to balance Hypatia’s unaccustomed bout of depression.  So let’s have some fun thinking what we should call Sniffy Old Joe if his theft of our election is successful (in large part because too many Romneys & Bushes are so quick to drop to their knees — they need to learn how to do the full kow-tow, because the Chinese Communist Party is standing right behind their candidate Biden).

Everyone knows the story about Roman Emperor Caligula making his horse a Senator, although the sources are a little vague about whether he actually did this or only talked about doing it.  There are also historians who suggest that Caligula was not mad, simply making the point to the Senators that they were worthless.  Which brings us back to Creepy Joe....

Do Results Despite Inherent Disadvantages Suggest Optimism?

As I write, we don’t know the result of the Presidential race, but it doesn’t look like Trump will win. The fact that it is even close and that we will likely hold the Senate and unexpectedly pick up House seats limits the damage which can be done by a president (sic) Harris (IMO, Biden will not last 6 months in office if he does win). In reflecting on our  (meaning Republican/conservative/libertarian) inherent disadvantages when it comes to winning elections, I am tempted to at least consider the possibility that my ever-mounting pessimism just might be buffered a bit.

Each of the following is worthy of extended analysis, but I lack the time (I must continue splitting my logs to finish splitting the winter’s firewood supply) and probably the knowledge to do the topics justice. Thus I will simply list the chronic problems (and one acute one – the pandemic) we face in actually winning elections.... [Read More]

Swamp Denizens = A Cancer on Society

Lest you doubt the existence of a swamp centered on Washington DC, note the Presidential vote in that perfectly-square geographical contrivance: 95% Biden vs. 5% Trump. Only Saddam Hussein and his ilk used to enjoy such majorities and this has inescapable implications as to the ideology and practice of our governance.

The ethos of those in power – thousands of small, petty fiefdoms whose arcane rules insinuate themselves into every aspect of our lives – resembles metastatic cancer cells. Only their expansion of control and parasitic nutrition at the expense of all else is operant.... [Read More]
