The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

The current unrest in Iran is simply the boiling over of bitter resentment of a repressive regime doing what it always does, combined with the flagrant and unapologetic murder of an innocent. The people of Iran have been abused since the beginning of the mad Mullahs' reign, and only by brutal repression and refocusing their attention on external threats (The great Satan (America) and The Little Satan (Israel)) have they retained their power.

But it isn't only the people of Iran who have been injured...the entire world suffers from the terrorism that Iran exports wherever it can, and it is not just bombings and assassinations...it is terror directed at entire countries.

But is there an end in sight?


As Melanie Phillips describes:

As has been demonstrated by the suspension of the head of the morality police and the announcement of an inquiry into Amini’s death, the Iranian tyrants have been showing nervousness at this fresh eruption of street protest. As well they might: few know better than a revolutionary regime how fragile is the control it wields through brutality. If enough people have the courage to face that down, the regime falls.

Until now, the protests that have periodically erupted and have been viciously suppressed — including the “Green Revolution” that followed the disputed 2009 presidential elections — haven’t achieved the critical mass necessary to bring the regime down. But under the hardline president Ebrahim Raisi — who has presided over the execution of more than 300 people this year for political crimes — and the increasing privations of economic collapse, with an approximately 300 per cent increase in the cost of basic goods, public fury and desperation have been increasing.

Well, not if the Biden junta has anything to say about it! They have bent over backwards to accommodate Iran in the negotiations for restarting the nuclear deal that will guarantee a nuclear weapon for Iran in short order. And not just a relaxation of the sanctions, but the release of a huge amount of cash that will bolster the regime just when it is under significant pressure from within! Time and time again the Biden junta has acquiesced to most of Iran's demands, making clear to Iran and the world that America is comfortable with the Mullahs having the ability to threaten the entire region with nuclear war.

State Department made 'calculation' to prioritize Iran nuclear deal over human rights issues

"We are doing everything we can not only to support the human rights and the aspirations for greater freedom of the Iranian people, but also to hold accountable those within the Iranian system that are responsible for … violence against the Iranian people," Price said. "When it comes to Iran, though … there would be no greater challenge to the United States, to our partners and to the broader international system than an Iran with a nuclear weapon."

Price argued that any challenge Iran poses would ultimately grow more severe if Iran attained a nuclear weapon, citing the country’s support for terrorist groups and proxy militias in the region as examples of threats that might grow more severe.

Except that the nuclear deal will provide everything Iran needs to create a nuclear weapon and anyone who thinks otherwise is simply carrying water for the accommodationists in the West Wing and the state department.

It is the perfect time to support the anti-government protesters in Iran with regular public announcements and perhaps private support that could include communications assistance and even arms. If the Mad Mullahs are rocked back on their heels by country-wide protests against their rule, it is incumbent upon America to pause the negotiations and shift the world's focus on the abysmal human rights record of the Iranian dictatorship.

Why not let the people of Iran do the work for us...and the world? Aside from the pesky little fact that the Biden junta is for all intents and purposes on the side of the Mullahs, that seems like a great idea!

Too bad that they see Iran as a perfect foil against those filthy Jooos in Israel and their disgusting desire to be safe from their enemies. The administration and its handlers in Kalorama would rather see a nuclear-armed Iran that promptly launches against Israel, than a safe and prosperous Middle East with Israel as the militarily and economically dominant player.

Probably not, but an easing of the domestic situation there could be. Fully a third of the Iranian people are pro Western. Further, a large number of the rich and elite of Iran have had their kids going to schools in Europe and even the US. These kids are now adults and those who haven't figured out a way to stay in the West (where a lot of the families have hidden their wealth) then they are returning and not the least bit interested in living is a third world shit hole.

Interestingly, Iran is one of the few countries that can field whole Armies. And they do so yearly for their annual Field Exercise. These are Armies...made up of multiple Corps which are made up of multiple Divisions. Only the Chinese can do this today (if memory serves...India too maybe?) We certainly cannot and the Russians are gaining some real world experience in understanding just how hard this is.

She would wait on the same young Medicaid customers for years and became a working friend, getting to know their supposed difficult financial lives. . Anyway the Pharmacy put in a drive thru when it became a thing and those customers started to drive thru. Mom said everyone of them had a newer and better car than she had. She never looked at them the same.

Back in the day I worked nights and would go to the grocery store after I got off. One day a lady got into the line in front of me with two full carts...no biggie...it happens. Lots of expensive food.

Then she paid for it with her food stamp card (whatever they're called)...huge diamond ring on her finger...went outside and loaded it all into her new Cadillac.

He'll do it if it means he can ensure the vote to be Speaker of the House. He may be promising some of the more conservative members that he'll totally do it to make that happen. He's a weak quisling, and a successful impeachment vote in the House that leads to a quick acquittal from the Senate (because there's no way on earth they're getting 2/3 of the Senate to convict) is the sort of empty gesture he would be willing to do.

I have a very dim memory. I was maybe 4-5 (had to have been.) I was sitting in the cart seat and we were at the checkout. Mom got these colorful pieces of paper and handed them to the clerk.

What I put together much later: Food stamps. We moved into the newly built house when I was about 3, then the project Dad was working on at RCA got shut down suddenly. He was out of work for several months (I am not sure how long- and they do not really talk about it.) It took a while before they got back on their feet, but they got off food stamps as quick as possible because I do not have other memories of seeing them. I do remember for several years Mom was adamant that I could not get any toys or candy when we went to the grocery store. I was a little shit, but I understand why now that things had to be tight.

He was out of work for several months (I am not sure how long- and they do not really talk about it.)

I was on food stamps in the late '80s, back when they still had the slips of paper. I got off them as soon as I could. The only other time I had such a benefit was right after Katrina, when benefits were being handed out to all the refugees. The allotment was pretty big for 2 people, Miss Linda and me, and so we continued to use them up when we came back to Da Swamp. When that card expired, naturally I didn't try to renew it, as I was working.

You can't do like we do.

You might want to read just a bit more as the media in general is junk. Trump had a standing executive order on declassification. For what it is worth, you might actually read Youngstown Sheet and Tube v. Sawyer as to how the courts process executive claims versus congressional powers--it is a three part test. There is a hierarchy of laws--Constitution is first and that includes exercise of constitutional powers, then treaties, then statutes, then regulations, then policies, and so on.

Yeah there is some of that. But most don’t care about getting ahead. That’s the point. They are content and don’t make themselves miserable constantly chasing the unattainable like we do. And I dare say they’re happier than us.

309 For its entire history, Europe has viewed "trying to get ahead" as a serious character flaw. It's just not how they are wired. "Know Your Station" is more their ethos. The brutal bloody excesses of the 19th century, Europe's very own Sengoku Jidai, was just the steam valve popping off a bit. And now, a century of revolution and a century of world war later, they're right back to "Know Your Station", same as it ever was.

She is the celebrity of the GA Democrats. She's a grifter through and through, and if Democrats don't think Kemp has a chance of losing, they're happy to still promote Abrams to keep one of their bases happy while also taking a percentage of a lot of her donations.

Yes; I understand that there are people who are not afraid who are not people of religious faith, but they are conservatives and don't feel a need to have big government get power by controlling every aspect of peoples' behavior.

319 whig as usual with the wisdom.

But it's unfortunately become the case for almost any topic. And few have the background, time, or patience to, in effect, do all the of the press's jobs for them. Nor should they. That's the failure of the press and associated institutions in clear view.

We see it right here this morning with the Ukraine discussion. It didn't start Feb. 24, and "winning" and "losing" aren't remotely questions of territory or short term PR mojo, and on and on.

And on the classified material topic, both Bush II and Obama also issued EOs regarding presidential authority/procedure WRT declassification, which I think remain in effect. Not sure how they relate to the present case.

But the concept that a president has to follow the bureaucracy's declassification rules or druthers - unless an extant EO sets that out - is revealing and ridiculous.

It is work and that is what the media and manipulators count on. Assuming that everyone is lying is what is called a naive assumption that is simply a heuristic (mental shortcut) to evaluate information as to its validity. I tend to be slower on coming to any decision and part of that is evaluating information instead of using all information is good or bad shortcuts. Most problems outside of math and science are not black and white (a fallacy by the way) but probabilistic in nature so any bit of information can improve your track odds in prediction including knowing that you are getting information from a poisoned source. In that case, look for statements against interest in the information source as do attorneys questioning a hostile witness.

Now in America you need a upper middle class job to get that...with the 50+/hour week commitment. In Europe they no longer even try.

Why did this happen? We took all that value created by increases in productivity and pissed it away on welfare, corporate welfare, foreign aid, and poorly thought out foreign wars.

Without chasing anything we're a lot better off. I think what you are speaking to is more state of mind than people's physical circumstances. Whichever way you cut it, we're better off by the latter measure.

In most of the world you can be jailed for uttering something the government doesn't like. Makes you circumspect.

IIRC, someone got jailed for pointing out the grooming gangs in the UK. Mentioning their existence was considered worse than the girls being raped.

Reality does not care what people want. Which is what Roald Dahl was getting at. Time for resolution is what it is because any such actions come from the interactions of a large group, not a single person. More people in the loop, longer processing time for information and laws, regulations, court actions, etc. can make it even longer because each player in the game is trying to manipulate information to their advantage.

391 At some point though ya kinda have enough. Compared to only 50 years ago the average middle class person lives a life of luxury today. So if you’re happy, why work yourself to an early death to get that little bit more? The marginal benefit of “more stuff” today isn’t worth what it once was. You have a 50” hd4k tv. Do you need the 90 inch version? Not really. You have a car that is more technologically advanced by orders of magnitude vs 30 years ago for $40k. Do you really need the $80k version? Not really.

And that’s the general Euro attitude. I live well doing the bare minimum. I don’t need to go nuts to get maybe. A bit more stuff I don’t really care about. My time to spend and enjoy life is more valuable.

452 We took all that value created by increases in productivity and pissed it away on welfare, corporate welfare, foreign aid, and poorly thought out foreign wars.

One man's "pissing away" is another man's control of the revenue streams, the percentage which reaches its destination, and which destinations are friends and donors.

Heh. As a writing technique, I treat it as a lump of clay on a potter's wheel and mold it over successive rewrites. I use it to avoid writer's block worries about generating a perfect paper in a first draft. Those sometimes come if my muse is generous and I am marinated in the subject. Problem then is length as you don't want to be Gibbons where a lot of his best writing is in the footnotes.

The movie described the mass efforts to move the lemmings in a way that didn't cause massive traffic jams that affected production in the insurance company and other companies in the skyscraper.

Having one person there to manage the buttons to ensure the right kind of movement when that's a concern seems like a valid use of company funds.

I believe the movement up and down was manual. It wasn't pushing a button and getting to the next floor, it was manually navigating the thing to the next floor.

Don't want normies doing that, I imagine.

537 323 Thanks flounder but Michael Crichton got to it before me with his Murray Gell Mann Amnesia hypothesis.

Basically, Crichton notes that experts in a field in reading a media article immediately recognize that it is almost entirely a work of fiction. But, then the expert turns the page and reads stories outside of their expertise and assume that the account presented is valid.

Best to always be a skeptic, not cynical, but skeptical and mentally vet any media story just as you would an anecdote from a stranger.

Whig, this is the truth, right here. Whenever I've made a significant mistake in my opinion, 99% of the time it's because I trusted a source, rather than looking at the primary source myself. In my defense, I don't have the time to do all the research into everything I opine on (I'm a Moron, after all), but still.

Here in rural Northern AZ, I'm constantly getting text alerts & emails from the local community college (where I took some tennis classes from a great pro there) warning about ... wait for it ... coyote sightings (and not the Mexican cartel kind).

Maybe they should rename it Snowflake Community College. For all I know, masks are STILL required just walking around the campus (and they closed the new multi-million-dollar tennis courts for two years owing to covidiocy).

If you mean private citizen CN, I can't do a damn thing.

As for the silly idea of a kill switch, it didn't help Epstein, and it won't help the Trumps. None of it helped us. We have 2-6 more years of this. Maybe longer. Barr, Rosenstein. Huber, Sessions, and Horowitz were all pure fantasy on our part. The whole thing stinks.

564 @107 "I am really losing patience with Trump. Again, terrible judge of character. He had a staffer tell him that he need not take any official action to declassify documents. The very action of him taking them to MAL was enough to deem them declassified. A person with a lick of common sense, who has been under a damn microscope for 5 years, should have said "Well, let me sign a memo just to be thorough"

I sort of agree with the sentiment, but the caveat is that neither you nor I have ever been President. Presidents have to hyper-delegate and don't make a lot of their own notes, or they'd have time to do almost nothing else. A lot of what (I think) a President does is someone gives him some input and the President says "make it happen" and relies on supposedly competent minions to fill out the forms.

But the hidden data point is especially interesting: In states where Trump got involved and endorsed, primary turnout was up bigly on the GOP side. In states where he didn't get involved, the Demofascist turnout was up a hair (R+14 % versus D+2 %).

614 I haven't seen "The Caime Mutiny He was also not a nice guy in "Double Indemnity" but I didn't see that or "The Apartment" till I was in my late teens.

-----------------------
The Caine Mutiny is a decent book but an excellent movie with a stellar cast. It was based on a composite of several typhoons that hit the US Navy's Pacific Fleet causing loss of life and ships close to the war's end. I think the last typhoon blemished Halsey's service record and put paid to the career of John McCain's grandfather who was a key subordinate of Halsey. McCain was relieved of command and went home basically to die in short order. That in part was the grudge that McCain had against the US. His father was over the Pacific fleet as admiral when McCain was captured as a POW.

625 The novel Caine Mutiny emphasizes how the war matures Keith, turning unserious boy into serious man. The movie not so much. The book has lots of excellent grunt-level detail of mine-sweeper life. The movie not so much. OTOH, it takes only two hours to watch the movie, so do both.

Didn't know anything about him until I watched the recent biopic film. Born in Zanzibar (now part of Tanzania)?

What a voice -- like a musical instrument. I thought it was interesting they theorize he had extra teeth in the upper jaw, hence the overbite, that make his singing and range so unique.

The literary work also goes out of its way to show that there is a lot of shades of grey in war.

Keefer is the actual coward not Queeg see it turns out that Queeg had PTSD from being a navy man in the Atlantic during the German "Happy Time."

Queeg's sin? He did not want to lose any more sailors or merchies.
