The analysts appeared reluctant to have their analysis on China brought forward because they tend to disagree with the administration's policies, saying in effect, I don't want our intelligence used to support those policies," Zulauf described.

122 Remember this isn't about Trump, it's always been about you.

Democrats want you silenced and dead. They want you destitute and dependent.

It isn't Trump they are trying to silence by the thousands on social media. It isn't Trump they are trying to silence every day in the media.

It is the voice of opposition to their despotic agenda that is coming, and coming fast.

In a few short days, President Trump will be gone from office. Then all their hate, vitriol, attacks and destruction will turn to you.

Can't speak for the man, but: Bak was definitely a surrealist, and covered different topics, but with these kind of darker images, he was usually making a metaphor his family's life during the depredation of Lithuania by the Nazis. I'm nearly certain this one falls into that category. What exactly he's driving at, you'd have to ask him.

Miss Delilah was Best in Show yesterday at Nolan River under Mrs. Inge Semenschin. There were 1600 dogs competing yesterday and she beat some high rollers, considering there are only two clusters in the US this last weekend.

To put her win in perspective, there are some 1000 all-breed shows a year and it's a very tiny number of dogs that go BIS in all those events. Lila has joined that elite. Her grandmother Lacey was a multiple BIS winner as well. Blood will tell!

Rev Taylor was a medical missionary for years in China and had to deal with handling a large operation of people and correspondence and while there he experienced sickness, death of family members and crises in China including family and revolt. He got strength from regularly resting in God and reading Scripture and often he would be up late a night singing bits from his favorite hymns. Once, a co-worker heard him whistling the tune from the words of this hymn:" "Jesus I am resting., resting in the joy of what thou art; I am finding out the greatness of thy loving heart. The younger co-worker said to Mr. Taylor, "how can you whistle when our friends are in so much danger. Hudson Taylor replied quietly: "Would you have me be anxious and troubled? That would not help them and would certainly incapacitate me for my work" I just have to roll the burden on the Lord."

277 @240 - It is in St. Pete, in a big ass concrete museum repurposed from aviation or something like that and capable of withstanding a CAT 5 hurricane.

It was in Ohio before that bc the owner of Dali's portfolio (a plastics magnate) was concerned that if he kept it in his personal collection the IRS would come calling bc he paid Dali a lot of money but far less than market value. The same thing had happened to the owner of the Picasso portfolio a few years prior so it was a well-founded concern.

The St Pete museum has a bad ass VR experience with sight and sound where you go into one of his paintings (forget the name but it's a beach scene with two towers). You can go into the towers, walk up to the cliff face and look around, etc. ... occasionally monstrous elephants with daddy long legs walk by when you're walking the beach. Very bizarre.

295 Repeating for the daywalkers.

Miss Delilah was Best in Show yesterday at Nolan River under Mrs. Inge Semenschin. There were 1600 dogs competing yesterday and she beat some high rollers, considering there are only two clusters in the US this last weekend.

To put her win in perspective, there are some 1000 all-breed shows a year and it's a very tiny number of dogs that go BIS in all those events. Lila has joined that elite. Her grandmother Lacey was a multiple BIS winner as well. Blood will tell!

they'll adjust how they calculate it under a Biden admin.

also, the tech revolution has actually held inflation somewhat in check. It hasn't reduce the price of eggs, milk or cereal, but Big Screen TV's used to cost 10, or 20k. Now you can get one for a couple of hundred bucks. Price of oil down, but you don't notice it as much because the states all stepped in to jack up their gas taxes.

_________________

People will just change the name of the rallies to something other than MAGA, and the law will have to label as "domestic terrorists" any rally where the speakers defend the U.S. constitution, advocate for domestic and foreign policies that put American interests first, argue for the necessity of secure borders and equal application of the rule of law, etc.

So how long before words like "United States of America," "constitution," "bill of rights," "national sovereignty," etc., get officially classified as "hate speech"?

We are surrounded by worldly evil. They are in charge. This is their domain. It has been this way in the past and will be in the future. There is nothing you have that isn't already theirs but yourself, your immortal soul god given spirt and your connections with loved ones. Even these things can be left fragile and need care but are at least beyond their dominion.

Note that many of those are leftists following others to continue the harassment and shit in that bed.

Parler is another story. They don't have servers, only data and are looking for someone, anyone to house them. I don't recall where they're looking or what hosting farm has accepted them.

Lastly, just because Gab and/or Parler find homes, increase capacity doesn't mean they'll survive. ISP's like Comcast, ATT, etc. can decline to provide networking capabilities to either or both, thus keeping those sites offline for millions of people.

Yeah, well that's water under the bridge, if they can't get anyone to host them then they are going to be down for a while as building out your own data center, replication and distribution infrastructure is going to take a while.

Lead time on the iron they need is at a minimum 3 to 6 months.

Lead time on the pipe is at a minimum 8 weeks before order to circuits being switched on.

Let alone securing the physical space that can support a data center.

Welp, we'll see what happens, but it doesn't look good.

I don't know enough about VMs but I was wondering if it would be possible to set things up so that folks could volunteer to let an outfit like Parler put a VM on their computer and connect it to other voluntary VMs across the country to provide services. I think in these days of lots of people having high speed internet to allow streaming movies the bandwidth is out there to allow this.

These tech companies are structured to arrive at a single future point, being bought out by a big company. They do whatever they can to keep working along that line towards being gobbled up. They're like a plant that evolves methods to get eaten by another creature. They don't plan so much for quality or future capability as they do looking good to passing VC guys to get them to bite. Scaling potential is only talked to in order to increase interest but it isn't implemented.

Community open source dev is done differently, communities often plan better but it is also often slower. I believe that it is time for inherently non-leftist dev-communities. It shouldn't be this way but it is. They've already started kicking people out of os groups based on politics. So here we are.

507 The more Big Tech squeezes its political enemies, the more alt-tech gets boosted and hardened. You can't squelch the political beliefs / thoughts of 75 million American citizens. The more the pressure increases, the greater lengths to which people will go to be able to express themselves.

Big Tech is in the process of destroying itself.

508 The 1/6 protesters were on the receiving end of unjustified deadly force. Ashli Babbitt was an unarmed 100 pound woman, and she was surrounded by armed cops standing right next to her who could have each taken one of her arms and cuffed them behind her back if they felt she was a threat. Instead a cop on the other side of a door shot her in cold blood.

Several dozen innocent people have been murdered, and a trillion dollars (or more) property damage has occurred because of George Floyd's death. Floyd was being arrested for lawbreaking. Over and over we've been told how this was an innocent man murdered by cops. Well Ashli Babbitt was an innocent woman murdered by cops.

What is the covid number so far? Then take that a divide into Spanish
flu.



The WHO estimates the flu kills 290,000 to 650,000 per year. Covid
has 1.9 million worldwide deaths attributed to it so far. So its not a
myth, not trivial. However the math does not work out 7 to 8 times
either.

People may also have to break themselves of wanting instant responses and conservatives go back to list serves, but I don't think the list serve model scales to a very big group of people like gab, parler and the commie twitter and FB allow.

541 Stop it Chi-town Jerry,
You do know that they have strict rules for who actually dies from flu versus the loosey goosey reporting of Covid death and government funds ride on a covid diagnosis.

The usual complication for flu deaths is bacterial pneumonia developing. However, the deaths are reported as pneumonia, NOT the flu. NCHS has the combined stats and it is about 58000 per year die of flu+pneumonia. Took all of a couple of seconds to google it.

For the very old, particularly those in nursing homes or rehab hospitals, it is very deadly but then again so is the flu but a lot of that is due to immunity resistance being ineffective for the old and being confined in an area where viral loads are probably greater than an casual encounter in a bar. Neighbors on both sides around my house had it go through their families and no deaths or serious complications. One of the reasons that lockdowns are simply not working is you are now confining people to a house in constant contact--one gets it, they all get it.

377,000 which would be in range you calculated. That would not address the "attributed to" vs. "caused" issue. 1.9 million WW deaths, is now where near the Spanish Flu.

Do you have any details on the age, or health status of the individual who died? I can tell you the only people who died in my wife's large practice were immune comprised. 3 people. Plenty of folks got sick and got better. Some hospitalized but very few.

Your own health my be at risk from more than a covid infection. You can get help. You don't have to live with crippling anxiety.

544 There is also the unseen number of deaths caused by people with anxiety about Covid and avoiding or being prevented from accessing crucially needed medical care such as cancer and heart followups.

It is not good to live life in fear from incomplete information that is cherrypicked to support your personal fear. If you are that worried about it, sign up for the vaccine but that has risks (unknown right now) of its own including that you might still get it and transmit it--just a lighter case.

_____________

Yep, Floyd was not only passing counterfeit money, but his death was the result of his own decision to shove a 3x lethal amount of fentanyl up his butt before the cops even detained him.

And as the trial (if it ever gets held) is going to show, the cops followed their training exactly. When confronted with a suspected drug addict subject demonstrating symptoms of excited delirium (as Floyd clearly was), they were trained to restrain the subject prone on the ground, with their knee on his neck, and call EMTs. The reason for the restraint was that addicts experiencing excited delirium can thrash around and injure themselves. The training manuals even contain a "how to" photo of a cop doing this exact restraint.

Is a MN jury going to be willing to send cops to prison for doing exactly what they'd been trained to do by the black Democrat-run PD?

Not exactly - for example in 2017 2018 there were 61,000 flu deaths. 2014 2015 50,000 or so. It depends on the year but 60K is high. 400K would very high if they were all the same cause. you really have to compare the total deaths with this years deaths to see because there is no flu being diagnosed, because they stopped testing for it. I think it will be within 10% of last year. We won't have the final numbers until February probably. It has gone up a couple of percent for like the last 10 or 15 years I think. So the increase would be maybe 7% of around 2.8 million. Not a small number.
