16 Not news, but this is one my schedule for today. I am going to write a letter to the President of the school which my son graduated from and tell him that I liked
the graduation ceremony, was glad there were no protests, that I appreciated the students speaking instead of an "imported" speaker, and that maybe next time in the interest of DEi they could have a white male speak since the majority of their students or pretty close to it ( there may be more women than men) are white males and golly gee, white men are capable of doing good and great things.

10 Evening and morning to all the early risers and late toilers out there!

Dream story: I was wandering with Miss Linda around a college campus that was unfamiliar to me. Apparently I had a job interview. The building I was supposed to meet the guy in was fenced off. For some reason we had to traverse a catwalk outside the building -- an engineering building, of all things -- a narrow catwalk with no handrails, just flimsy netting on both sides that blew around in the wind.

So I call the guy. In my dream, I was aware he looked and sounded like Newt Gingrich. I hoped he'd reschedule, but he asked me to meet him at a bar in the nearby shopping mall. We had to discuss something about money to be transferred to a bank account. I had about twenty minutes, so Miss Linda and I went over to the mall, which was connected to this college campus in some way, and it looked empty and closed up too! And then . . . I woke up.

Thus expressing the futility of modern life?

40 And, in that same article:

"In one high-profile incident from January, nonconsensual, pornographic deepfakes of Taylor Swift went viral on X, with one of the most widespread posts receiving hundreds of thousands of likes, and 45 million views. Social platforms like X have historically failed at protecting women from these circumstances — but since Taylor Swift is one of the most powerful women in the world, X intervened by banning search terms like “taylor swift ai” and taylor swift deepfake.”

Oh no, poor little things! Men haven't been protecting you!

59 The sustainable aviation fuel thing* has a telling line: “To bring these fuels to the scale needed would require massive subsidies".

To be fair, he has other objections which get closer to the mark, but the real point is that scaling them is impossible. Unlike the alternatives added to car fuels (ethanol and biodiesel) the SAFs currently being tried do mostly seem to be "sustainable" and not harming other sectors like food production. The downside of that is of course that they are just not scalable. At first glance there is literally no way to do it.

If I can get the backing and funding I would like to research this, but that seems unlikely given the politicisation of research resources.

It would be pretty easy overall.

The richest 1% consume/contribute something like 20%+ of all "carbon" whatever (and more than something like 60% of the not-as-rich combined).

All the people who say they care about this silliness would have to do is pretend they care about this silliness and it would IMMEDIATELY do more to have an effect on what they pretend to care about than anything they insist you and I do.

But they don't care because it's not real. Like you pointed out, it's simply a way to make money.

The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“The court will enjoin the sale as requested because, one, the real estate is considered unique under Tennessee law,"

"And in being unique, the loss of the real estate would be considered irreparable harm." chancellor Joe Dae Jenkins


Quote II

“I have every confidence that it’s going to get done,”

“No one should worry, they’re going to be able to vote for the president or the former president, whoever they want to vote for.

“You know, this is not going to be a situation where the president’s name is not on the ballot. Republican Gov. Mike DeWine


Quote III

“One out of every 10 federal student loan borrowers approved for debt relief means one out of every 10 borrowers now has financial breathing room and a burden lifted, Education Secretary Miguel Cardona

The previous quote leads into the perfect story below the fold.

How Victimhood Became America’s Most Valuable Currency

Being a victim used to be a bad thing — something we tried to avoid, and rarely wanted to admit. As a nation, we strove to rise above obstacles and adversity, not wallow in our own self-pity. Yet today the most powerful people in America are the ones who scream loudest about their own victimization.

The Daily Caller’s latest documentary, “Demand for Hate,” exposes how this happened — and how it gave the worst people in America the power to ruin the lives of innocent people. America has now become all too familiar with hate crime hoaxes as the desire to be victimized far exceeds the supply of hate and oppression

So when are the working men and women recognized as victims from the waste, abuse and theft from government?

Self startup restaurants have challenges.

What Percentage of Restaurants Fail? Restaurant Success Rate
Approximately 60% of restaurants fail within the first year of operation and 80% fail within the first five years.

These numbers may seem off-putting, but the remaining 20% of restaurants go on to find long-term growth and success.


Where every cent of $1 goes at one L.A. restaurant, explained

My industry has always been as difficult as it is magical. In the post-pandemic era, challenges are categorically higher.

The threat to restaurants during the pandemic was obvious; it was a given that many wouldn’t come out the other side. In 2024, restaurants are back! No, restaurants are dying! No, restaurants are (sometimes) busy! It is whiplash, day to day.

For many, including my restaurant, Botanica, solvency is more elusive than ever due to the elevated cost of doing business. Since opening Botanica nearly seven years ago, our labor costs have risen 40% for hourly workers and 25% for salaried management, the result of minimum-wage increases and market-rate pay increases. Our rent has risen 17%. Our sales, on the other hand, have grown only 2.3%.

Just because it's someone else's local news doesn't mean that it isn't interesting.

Bizarre crash on Route One leaves driver waiting for answers from Trenton Police

TRENTON — A strange series of events left several damaged vehicles, a fire, and a driver who fled the scene on a busy section of Route 1.

One of the drivers involved, James Green, told The Trentonian that he is still waiting for answers and the accident report from Trenton Police so that he can get his insurance squared away.

Complicating the situation is the fact that the driver who struck his car drove off with his car on fire, then got out and fled on foot.

Techies Build a Carless 15-Minute “Dream” City for the Peasants
By M DOWLING -May 22, 20240

California progressives create the problem of housing with bad policies, and then they come up with an even worse solution. Such is the 15-minute city some tech giants are building. They are trying “to build a dream” in California. Is it a dream or a nightmare?

A secret group is purchasing lots of farmland. As it turns out, the group comprises the richest people in the world. Silicone Valley leftists are buying the land. They have a website called “California Forever.”

Move to California? What are you, fvcking nuts?!?

Clark came off a winning college basketball season and ended her college career by breaking a list of women’s basketball records not to mention doing her part to wildly increase viewership on TV and in person for women’s college basketball games.

If she isn't the Queen of Resting Bitch Face She is tonight's Genius Award Winner.

After departing her home on Peaceful Lane, Sandra Rodgers "engaged in a verbal argument regarding [the victim's] water usage," investigators report.

MAY 22--Angry about the amount of water her 72-year-old neighbor was using to clean his motorcycle, an 80-year-old Florida woman allegedly spit on the man and yanked on his beard, according to cops who arrested the octogenarian on a felony battery charge.

Investigators say that Sandra Rogers was in her apartment Friday afternoon when she spotted John Faraone scrubbing his wheels. Rogers lives on Peaceful Lane in the 55-and-over Palm Lake Village community in Dunedin, a city west of Tampa on the Gulf Coast.

Manitoba Farmer Gives Away Millions Of Potatoes To People In Need

Today's good news story comes from Manitoba, Canada.

Manitoba farmer Isaiah Hofer faced an unprecedented challenge this year when his potato harvest yielded an exceptional surplus. With nearly 100,000 bags of potatoes—each weighing 100 pounds—Hofer was left contemplating the unfortunate fate of letting millions of pounds of nutritious food go to waste.

37 Victimhood is popular now because it confers virtue on those who claim it (or have it claimed for them). If you're a victim, it means your failures aren't your fault; you have inherent dignity and potential, but were denied the opportunity to demonstrate them.

Much as we blame CRT and Cultural Marxism (and rightly so), the fact is that victimhood speaks to the innate human desire to half-ass everything.

I know the camera is much closer, but the PAK 75 seems much more violent than the 88. I wonder if they reduced the charge on it.

I'm not sure if the 88 had more than a blank round in it. The 75 certainly did; you can see the impact.

One time we went to a restaurant - which we had enjoyed previously - right after they changed their menu/service format. I ordered the crab bisque, which had always been quite good in the past.

After one taste, I told Hubby that it "tasted like Butt". Now, I really don't have the first idea what "Butt" tastes like, but believe me when I tell you that if Butt had a taste, it would have been this soup's taste. Kind of like a dirty diaper (the kids were young at the time, so we knew from dirty diapers).

He didn't believe me, so I made him taste it.

He proclaimed that it did, indeed, "taste like Butt".

Restaurant went out of business not long afterward....

175 Achievements are ephemeral, they can always be surpassed by someone more athletic, intelligent, or talented. But the achievement remains historically.

Victimhood, on the other hand, is eternal. It can never be satisfied, and it can always be brought out to conclude an argument.

181 I had to get an estimate on unblocking my sewer line today. while talking to the dispatcher, I had a number of things I was hoping to have considered, and since I am not young and stupid as I once would, I ended with the comment, "and I suppose I also want a pony"
Dispatcher laughed and she said the area rep would be out to give me an estimate.
When he showed up he said the office lady sent me something, and handed me a picture of a pony.

Funniest thing that happened all day.

199 Not necessarily the end of civilization, just American civilization.

We're just arriving at the turn of the cycle a little earlier.

*SHRUG*

Just as the Western Roman Empire did not so much fall as gave rise to kingdoms that became France, Spain, Portugal, etc., we'll have leaner and meaner polities that center on more important things than allegiance to the Empire.

History has told us ad nauseum that there's something of a maximum efficient scale for countries, especially when something less primal than nationality is necessary to hold the operation together and maintain loyalties.

213 Borehole is a book published by a couple wack jobs several years ago, the author was a proponent of self-trepanation. He drilled a hole in his head, with a drill. After taking a tab of LSD.

Apparently, drilling a hole in the skull is actually pretty tough and this was his 2nd or 3rd attempt. He claimed there were certain health benefits to doing so, and had an evangelist enthusiasm in trying to get others to do the same. He was barred entry into Britain by the Home Office, I guess they already had enough problems.

226 After watching tonight's SpaceX launch, and the boring Blue Origin launch earlier this week, I figured out how Blue Origin could make their launches more interesting. Instead of using a rocket, they should make a railgun to launch the capsule up to 300,000+ feet, or even put satellites into orbit. Besides the sabot or capsule, depending on payload, everything stays on earth.

They could use a nuclear power plant for power, or burn thrown out CVS receipts for electricity.

The new Portland DA sounds like a real upgrade. Career state prosecutor for more than 20 yrs, IIRC. So he's paid a lot of dues & never made much money.

268 I find it interesting that in a rock era where the 35ish Stones of the time were considered amazing dinosaurs that both Debbie Harry and Ric Ocasek, considered fresh young stars of the next generation, were close to the same age, and it was not known among us teens of the time
Posted by: Azjaeger


Harry never married, but shacked up for a while with Blondie's average-looking guitarist, Chris Stein.

Despite being less handsome than me, which is saying something, Ocasek married supermodel Paulina Porizkova. After marriages to two other cute-but-non-supermodel women.

Being in a rock band works better for dudes, I guess.

He gave them some sage advice including that even if you are happy doing something that you are very successful at, don't be afraid to try something new.

The Ramones had an "artistic director" Arturo Vega, because they thought it important.

the chamber of deputies has a lot to say about that. As it is, however, Argentina is mostly unofficially dollarized, everyone keeps savings in dollars and figures prices in dollars, but are forced to make payments in pesos by the government, so everyone takes a bath on the exchage.
However, the black market price of the USD is listed in all the main papers, it is called the Dollar Blue. There is also a foreign price listed, that is the price of the USD in pesos listed in foreign banks, and there used to be a price listed specifically for Montevideo Uruguay.

The directive Milei put down stated that any currency, gold or other form of barter would be sufficient for making binding contract, this was shot down by the Chamber vote.

307 “Rhode Island and California both get two senators.”

I followed a discussion online with the lefty strategist types probably 30 years ago. First they need to get rid of the Electoral College.

Then, this “2 senators” per state business. They really hate that, maybe more than the EC. They allowed that will take a while.

The EC is fast becoming moot. They know how to game the system, by careful strategy, a few key precincts in a few key states, and Bob’s Yer Uncle.

I was always impressed with the old school electoral wonks. Before computers. You could ask them any county in the country, say “Polk County, Iowa” and they could tell you how it went in every election going back decades.

That’s why they parked those guys in the back room on election night. They knew what “bell weather” counties to look at, almost proprietary information, because they knew who the ultimate winner would be at the end of the night, just by looking at a specific county or two. “Uh-oh”….

At the time, it was probably a good idea, because they had no way of knowing what the future would hold. And the government wasn’t leaving anything to chance.

Logistics and money wise, lumber, materials, construction. The cost must have been enormous. In a highly rationed environment (You couldn’t buy a tube of toothpaste without first turning in the empty) it is silly to suggest this was done simply out of racism, as is the current twaddle.

He had the executive order voted down, so I think the first step he is taking is to do what he can on the executive side, which includes cracking down on the protests, and getting the people who are suffering under inflation on his side. with what he is doing they have turned inflation down from ~30% to ~3% in five months, and it looks like he is getting traction.
He is an odd duck, he is a very good speaker and so far he has a smart cabinet behind him so far, who are interested in doing what they are doing. Bullrich was a candidate for pres who ran on law and order, so he made her his justice and security minister for example.
His view on dollarization is similar to Jesus Huerta de Soto in that the only benefit to dollarization is that it takes money printing away from the central bank and the politicians. I think he would be happier to use any hard currency or have all of them to set up a market of sorts instead.

In my neck of San Diego, I see announcements on a building for a restaurant, then nothing for months...then the start building up the inside...then nothing for months. It takes almost 2 years from the sign going up saying a new restaurant is coming to when they finally open. Why? I would guess Gov't red-tape. The above talks about "first year of operation", but how many bleed out before they can even open due to Gov't interference?

Posted by: mnw

Japanese had exclusion zones on the west coast. They could pretty much be or go anywhere else. Most people there were in fact citizens of Japan or minor children. Unlike most immigrants those from Japan kept citizenship for home nation legal reasons. The camps were not prisons / POW camps and had job boards if people wanted to leave and wanted a job when they got to where they were going. There are Ansel Adams pics at shorpy dot com that documented this.

However, there was one camp that held those that affirmed their support for Japan. Just like Japan interred Anglos in occupied territory... but were not worked to death.

355 My Uncle was a corporal who fought in Europe during the “Big one”, including the Bulge.

He said the 88 was a real MFer, because it could be used for anti-aircraft use, or spin it down horizontally and really fuck up your day. He also said the Wermacht were absolute masters of camouflage, very hard to find them.

He was also pissed off about the gunpowder GIs had in the cartridges. It was a fairly dirty burning powder, and made a lot of smoke, giving one’s position away. He said the Germans had a very high quality smokeless powder, and you couldn’t see where they were firing from.

He said another advantage they had at that level of fighting was they had a very, very good NCO corps and made them punch far and away above their weight.

Spain has recalled its ambassador to Argentina because Argentine President Milei went to Spain to talk to a conservative group there, and neglected to talk to the Spanish government, and in his speech he accused the prime Minister's wife of corruption, which was typical of the socialist politician.

My first language was Basic. Instructor was the best I ever had in any subject. He took us through the history of programming and computers before diving into the writing (as is was called prior to coding). Punch cards was part of that historical journey. You paved some road.

And I did the same, though from naught more than a High School Diploma, some intuitive guidance, and an assist from the (then) new, Boston Graphics software suite.

When I "sold" the first T-1 comms line to the Corporate Suite? I HAND DREW the graphics, photographed those with a Kodak film that rendered those as dark blue fields with white text (i forget the nomenclature), and presented the stack as a Slide Show, to illustrate the channelization of 24 lines on a single, twisted copper pair.

$37k for the T-1, and the Mitel T-1000 switch, and associated gear. The CEO told me my ass was on the line. My figures projected a 26 month R.O.I.

It paid for itself in just over SIX months.

One CAN ascend to a Director level position in a NYSE, Fortune 1000 Corporation. Gotta have the right poker hand, and the exact WRONG telcom consultant, as an opponent.

1988, actually. Inside nod. San Antonio, TX was one of the first FOUR cities in the U.S. to get a FIber Backbone in the Telcom world.

Reasons: 1. Hemisfair World Fair '68. They had to have it for the AT&T Pavillion. 2. FIVE major miltary bases then in San Antonio. The critcal one was Kelly AFB, with it's USAF Communications Security Command H.Q., being there. One of THE bedrock crypto and listening post componds, anywhere.

Even regular "base cops" had Shoot to Kill orders for any intrudters inside the first of three barbed wire/chain link fences.

Did WELL, until the Telecommunications Act of 1996 kicked in in 1998. Gutted telco revenues like a fish.

Add an October '98 motorcycle wreck, and divorce not a year later (she hated not to be able to go shopping!).... Divorced in 1999.

486 Morning, fellow insomaniacals!

I have a dream story involving someone who looked and sounded much like Newt Gingrich. Maybe I'd better save it for the Tech Thread, though.

More worrisome is that last evening, my air conditioning ran steadily and never got the temp below 72. This is bad; if this goes on my power bill will be vicious -- and the heat coming up this weekend will be just as horrible. I'll call the office today, but I have a distinct feeling nothing will be done and I'll have to pay for a service call out of my own pocket. I've been dealing with this nightmare possibility for several years.

On the other hand, the shingles outbreak is just about gone, so there's that.

I don't, and there's no way to get cross breezes either. It's A/C or nothing. The unit *is* cooling, and in fact this am it was reading just a hair under 70 before I edged the needle up. Bit that 70 is only about eight degrees under the outside temp right now.

I could go to Walmart like a lot of my neighbors and get a couple of small window units. But the air here usually works very well; I shouldn't have to do such things.

Kind of like a big alley.

If you're not cheating', you're not tryin'.

Do not taunt the Big Mattress.


Bears routinely cool off in a family's pool.

Polar bear drive-through.

Grizzly bear just sits next to a guy.

The world's smallest bear.

Big fat bear "Hank the Tank" partially cleared by DNA evidence of breaking into people's homes to steal their food.

Bear climbs into an enclosure to try to eat a pig, but finds out that pigs are tough customers.

More of the dog who WILL NOT BE IGNORED!!! He does not discriminate based on gender; all will be bothered and harassed.

England has its share of eccentrics.

This is insane.

Future Republican voter. Current Republican voter. Wait, what am I saying, it's a cat, obviously it gets recorded as a Democrat vote or six.

Riding a huge wave.

Cat is a surrogate mom to ducklings.



America used to build buildings. That was a good America. I miss that America.

Have you ever heard of the "Skyscraper Effect"? It posits that the building of "the tallest or most whatever" buildings precedes an economic recession. some schools of economics feel this is due to the creation and collapse of a business cycle , which (according to some reviled economic schools) is a cycle of credit creation, inflation, malinvestment due to the magically appearing money having little risk due to easy credit, with the greatest mis-investment being just before everything goes boom.

Russia has been buying lots of gold and has been acting to back the Ruble with gold to prevent economic leverage from the West. It has been doing this for a good 20 years. A hard money has trouble generating massive business cycles.

NYT: Since the first American shipments of sophisticated weapons to Ukraine, President Biden has never wavered on one prohibition: President Volodymyr Zelensky had to agree to never fire them into Russian territory, insisting that would violate Mr. Biden’s mandate to “avoid World War III.”

But the consensus around that policy is fraying.

Quite frankly, he had the most frightening resume of all the Soviet Premiers, up till Putin took the Big Chair.

Cold War KGB Spymasters, with body counts.

Damn good thing that Andropov didn't last very long. He was a very smart man, with very dark experience. Hence, dangerous.

Putin is in some ways, Andropov with a better P.R. team.

Oh, and I do not forgive the U.S. Press, for portraying Andropov as a "modern" Soviet, with a penchant for Jazz and other inconsequential bits of "Westernisms".

Hey you stupid pleb, this year you've got 3 cents left each month after you pay for all necessities, because your wages went up due to inflation-based COLA! Last year you only had 2 cents left each month! Invest that Joe-provided extra penny in a savings account at your bank and in a million years you'll have the down-payment on a 40 sq ft house!

CNN's ratings are now at the lowest level since the f'ing first Gulf War.



CNN primetime ratings hit three-decade low as Mark Thompson searches for a strategy: 'He's thrown in towel regarding cable'

By Social Links for Alexandra Steigrad

CNN suffered its worst ratings among primetime viewers in the most coveted demographic by advertisers -- dealing a gut punch to embattled new boss Mark Thompson.

The cable channel, which touts itself as "the most trusted name in news," drew just 83,000 viewers aged 25 to 54 during the week of May 13-19 from 8 to 11 p.m. -- its lowest-rated week since 1991, according to Nielsen.

LOL, 83,000?!


By contrast, Fox News garnered more than the twice the audience in the key demo, with 186,000 viewers, according to Nielsen. Left-leaning MSNBC was a distant second with 111,000, the data showed.


"Thompson better get his act together before he completely destroys CNN," a top TV news producer told The Post.

"It seems like he's thrown in the towel regarding cable."

CNN's three-hour primetime block during the week features the network's highest paid anchor, Anderson's Cooper, with his show "AC360" at 8 p.m....

There was a rumor some months ago that these high-pay, low-ratings boat anchors would have to take a haircut on their salaries if they didn't want to be fired.

But of course CNN doesn't have the balls to do that.


Its total viewership for the week was also paltry with 494,000, compared with 2 million for Fox News -- which shares common ownership with News Corp, the publisher of The Post. MSNBC pulled in 1.1 million, according to Nielsen.

"CNN's new name is Cancelled Network Now," a media insider quipped.

"Young people are as interested in Anderson Cooper as they are in Liza Minnelli."

Coincidentally, they share a hairdresser. I don't mean the same guy cuts their hair, I mean they both share him.

...


Another media insider said Wednesday: "I know it's cliché to say but Thompson is rearranging the deck chairs on The Titanic. He has no new ideas yet. But maybe his old media playbook will work. "

Last month, Thompson said the network faces an "existential crisis," as it deals with cord cutting and the shrinking cable TV business.

Creep Warning:

Karine Jean-Pierre says that Biden won't use his actual power to act unilaterally to eject illegal aliens from the country. Now she demands Congress act, and the congressional action she wants is authorization for more visas and work permits for illegal aliens.

In other words, Biden doesn't want to kick out illegals unless he gets amnesty for a lot of illegals. He's acting as an agent for illegal aliens, unwilling to deport any without major concessions of amnesty for the rest.

A reporter points out that he has acted unilaterally in this field before -- to undo Trump's orders to deport.

So why can't he "act unilaterally" now?

Again, he can, he just wants to something in exchange so he can prove he Delivers for Illegals. You know, all the illegals won don't vote (wink!). It's important that he impress all of these millions of non-voters (wink) before an election.

Q: Biden has power to take executive action on border security, so why doesn't he?

JEAN-PIERRE: "Why should he have to do it unilaterally?"

Q: "He took unilateral action before to undo [President Trump's border security]!"

JEAN-PIERRE: Well, uh, yes -- true.

By a DA that “won” her race by 207 votes with 9,000 votes left they refuse to count.

This is what the gestapo look like. The best way to show people just how “legitimate” the 2020 election was is to intimidate, harass and try to imprison lawyers who filed legal challenges about its legitimacy.

“By the way, Trump’s doing it in the South Bronx not to make a point but because he’s got court. And the man practically has the legal version of an ankle bracelet around him, and he can’t leave the 5 boroughs because he always has to be in court. So it is truly an embarrassment to him. And I am looking forward to the response of everyday Bronxites talking about how they feel about him coming to their backyard.”

40 Nearly three in five Americans wrongly believe the US is in an economic recession, and the majority blame the Biden administration, according to a Harris poll conducted exclusively for the Guardian. The survey found persistent pessimism about the economy as election day draws closer.

Talk up how great Biden's unemployment numbers are when in line at the grocery store and like places. The link has charts and like explanations. Share than with any MAGA or independent you know.

bad idea IMO. biden's successes are nothing compared to the price escalation at that store.

Here in Northern Ohio which has struggled for years, there are new factories. Biden saved two Ford plants and GM Parma which was in trouble. Many jobs here were saved. Unemployment is at a 50-year low...we don't have inflation. We have greedflation. This is a great economy...everyone in my family is employed at a decent wage.

And what you say is a right-wing talking point. I know you don't mean it to be. But the reality is that this is not a Bad economy It is bad enough to see such things in Right-wing media and newspapers which are lies, must we read such things here?

-Plastic cutting board-> Wood. Easy switch. Huge reduction. (PMID: 37220346)

-Remove carpet/polyester furniture which increase microplastics in the dust in your home. (PMID: 3175667

-Rinse dishes before you eat off of them-minimize home dust ingestion, see above.

-Indoor air filter (see above)/ Open windows as much as possible. HEPA air filters should remove most indoor microplastics.

-Limit seafood (PMID: 3011699. This one will be controversial, but between PFAs, microplastics, and heavy metals do you really still think a pescatarian diet is ideal?

I watched her 'we don't give a damn' act live today. It was infuriating. Reporters pressed her hard (for White House reporters) with about 8 questions about the reasons for, and the fairness aspect, of Old Joe's continued yute vote buying through loan cancellation.

She had no answers to those questions. She had lots of talking points bullshit about Joe wanting to give every American personal budget 'breathing space" and student borrowers being 'crushed!' by loan payments, but no actual reasons why, other than Joe promised he'd do it. She never attempted to say why this crap is fair.

This student loan forgiveness horseshit should have made 3/4 of Americans gather together and storm the White House to install Joe's head on one of the spiked fence posts. But, nope. We're doomed to the 5th power if Joe is re-elected.

119 Just saw the edited video of five Israeli women soldiers that were captured by Hamas. Reportedly, parents (only one was present & spoke during the aired piece) of the women wanted the video released to put pressure on hostage negotiations, to have all 123 hostages released.

I always wondered why turning in - and over - the leaders, planners, perpetrators of October 7, 2023 wasn't a primary demand of US negotiations, prior to any humanitarian aid. Is there no property in the US and/or funds in markets and investments owned by those monsters & their organizations? Surely there is.

Now, it's the best economy in 50 years. Because, while you're struggling, your neighbors down the street may not be.

Of course, who can forget "McJobs" to deride good employment numbers.

We've Got a New "Trust the Science Experts" Update, and It's a Doozy: Study Links Fluoridated Water to Behavioral Problems in Kids, and... Autism-Like Symptoms

Perfect.

Just perfect, guys.

Give yourselves all $5 million bonuses for sciencing so fucking good.

David Strom writes Fluoride. Autism. Linked.


The case for putting fluoride in water has always seemed particularly weak to me, not because there is no evidence that fluoride can strengthen teeth but because of its topical application mechanism. Consuming fluoride is actually bad for your bones and hence, your teeth, at least in higher quantities. It is called fluorosis. The NIH has a paper on the positive and negatives regarding fluoridation, which helps explain why it is very uncommon in Europe, where most countries have ceased the practice of adding the substance to drinking water.

...

Fluoride as a neurotoxin has been proven in several animal studies. A 2006 National Research Council report stated that it is apparent that fluorides have the ability to interfere with the functions of the brain and the body by direct and indirect means.[19,20] This finding was confirmed by a study where groups of children exposed to 8 ppm fluoride in water were found to have lower average IQs, less children attaining high IQ, and more children affected by low IQ.[21] While 8 ppm is much higher than the fluoride level added to water in fluoridation programs (0.7--1.2 ppm), these results are in congruence with previous studies[22] from China that indicate that fluoride may affect IQ at lower levels.[23]


As you can see from this quote, the evidence that putting fluoride in water as opposed to mouthwashes or other topical applications is not just weak; research seems to indicate that too much fluoride is a positive danger.

I bet you never read that. I have refrained from writing about the subject because any reference to the dangers of fluoride are used to automatically discredit you. In fact, I have long suspected that the American obsession with debunking fluoride skeptics is rooted in a desire to not admit that the critics were right.

I will never trust government "Science" ever again.

They don't know what the fuck they're doing, and they're killing people and making kids autistic, just to justify their fucking salaries.

Robert Loibl and his wife, Louise, hold 10-milligram capsules of DDT which they took in front of witnesses for 93 days at lunch time, June 10, 1971. Loibl said their total dosage was more than the average person consumes in 83 years. He said his wife’s dandruff disappeared, their appetites perked up and they feel better.

"In 1971 two people in North Hollywood started eating DDT pills every day. That’s right, they willingly swallowed 10mg of poison every single day for three months. In front of witnesses.

From the Associated Press:

Robert Loibl and his wife, Louise, hold 10-milligram capsules of DDT which they took in front of witnesses for 93 days at lunch time, June 10, 1971. Loibl said their total dosage was more than the average person consumes in 83 years. He said his wife’s dandruff disappeared, their appetites perked up and they feel better. Loibl said they just wanted to call attention to the public that DDT was safe."

On the other hand, if the origin story is true, that they had piles of something laying around and decided to see what would happen if they put in the water supply.... who the hell knows??

And I'll also just go ahead and say that I am at that age where my friends are having grandchildren, and I really am stunned at the amount of shots these kids get.

I am by no means anti- vax, but I had no idea how many more they get now.

I didn't get the coof jab and I admit that I have been giving serious side eye to some of the ones they give kids now. Don't get me started on that hpv one.

Nothing wrong with asbestos until it turns into micro fibers that go airborne. That generally happens with age or when someone disturbs the asbestos.


I spent 3 years on the Midway CV-41 and slept on the top rack on the O2 level right under the number two arresting wire. I would wake up with my face and blanket covered in white asbestos powder. Every time a plane landed and trapped on that wire a fine cloud of asbestos dust would rain down on us from the overhead.

179 When I started going to the dentist again after turning 29, my dentist told me I had so few cavities, I must have grown up in an area that fluoridated the water.

“I grew up in the middle of nowhere. We got our water from a well.”

“It must have been high-fluoride groundwater.”

At which point I knew fluoridation was a religion regardless of benefits or drawbacks.

(This was in San Diego, which at the time did not fluoridate. Since then, California law has overridden local law, so I think they do fluoridate now.)

Fluoride salts convert the superficial layer of teeth from hydroxyapatite (a calcium phosphate compound containing a hydroxyl group) to fluoroapatite (in which a fluoride ion replaces the hydroxyl group), which is considerably harder and less prone to decay.

274 I mentioned in an earlier thread that my second oldest son was developing normally until he got the MMR vaccine. A couple of days after getting his shots when he was about 18 months old he passed out with a high fever and almost died.

Afterwards it was basically ground zero in development. He started stimmy behavior (hitting himself), ecolalia and other autistic behaviors.

Years later we did a genetic test and found he had a gene problem that leads to Dravit’s syndrome, the only known genetic link to autism.

I have wondered if the vaccine and genetic code worked together to lead to autism in some people.

301 >>Rachel Carson, Ken Kesey and Upton Sinclair have had far too much influence in our modern world. They wrote stories that were more compelling than accurate.

Carson wrote Silent Spring because she read a letter to the editor in a newspaper from a woman who claimed she had less migratory birds in her yard because they were spraying for mosquitos.

That's the kind of sciencing that gave us global warming.

302 While 8 ppm is much higher than the fluoride level added to water in fluoridation programs (0.7--1.2 ppm)
Can no one actually read? This study basically is the same crap they do with things that "cause cancer" - if you give the rats something equivalent to 10 times the "safe" level it's going to cause problems.

303 As soon as I heard the term "on the autism spectrum" I discounted all measurements of autism. People with no autism are on the spectrum, way over on the normal side. I'm to used to advocates in any field redefining the limits on everything downward so what was rare becomes common because the doctor decides so.

Being socially awkward is now “on the spectrum”. If you are walking around (absent weird piercings, etc) and little kids don’t stare at you like there is something wrong with you, you aren’t on the spectrum. When I’m out with my autistic son, if there is a young child around they instantly begin staring at him.

304 After they began fluoridating, people started getting bigger and bigger. Now the average-sized people, including the kids, are fat. There are some skinny-to-normal people, but they are the minority now.

315 I believe (but I could be mistaken) that fluoride applied to teeth can strengthen the enamel. As far as I know, there is no benefit from swallowing fluoride. In fact, the reason your toothpaste package says to see a doctor if you swallow the toothpaste is because the toothpaste contains fluoride.

Don’t know. Sometimes I think it was maybe just the fever itself. He was just standing there one second, then sat down then flopped to the floor. He was burning hot, stopped breathing and his lips turned blue. Maybe that was enough to damage some of his brain and the result was autistic behavior. Thankfully he is only moderately autistic, can communicate verbally and can take care of his basic hygiene. But he (20 yo) has limited comprehension skills and all the typical stimmy and vocal issues.

A lady I used to work with had a similar thing happen to one of her children. He let out a strange "howl" immediately after his mmr vaccine, and was all but vegetative after. The nurse had seen it before and grabbed him and ran with him to the ER. I didn't know the lady well enough to ask her for details, but he was in a nursing home from then on.

Posted by: Tammy-al Thor at May 22, 2024 06:40 PM (Vvh2V)

337 Honestly, I’ve pondered if the rise in autism (and food allergies) might be because the people who have them would have previously died of childhood illnesses, and there is some sort of shared gene predisposing somebody to both one and the other. (Alternatively, perhaps the illnesses themselves could lead to onset, if the infant survives - which they now do much more often.) That could explain why, for example, vaccines meant to immunize children from illnesses that could kill them before the age of 5, could be followed by the onset of autism. I imagine that the nasty ear infection I got when I was 18 months old or whatever, would have killed me a century ago, and then I wouldn’t have to worry about either my peanut allergy or my Asperger’s because I’d be kaput.

Nope, this was for hard sciences. Someone did a citation tree study to find papers that made a huge difference to Science, but most did not. Doesn't make them suspect or frauds, of course, just unimportant to science in general.

A similar thing is the Burgess Shale fossils. These basically sat in a drawer from 1915-20 because the guy doing the dig became an administrator and never really looked at them. In like 1970 someone opened up the drawer and actually looked at them and made all sorts of exciting discoveries that I am unconvinced would not have been seen at the time of discovery. Steven Gould thought different, but even the dudes he was praising for being forward thinking thought his analysis of the situation was wrong.

It is. It's chlorine GAS that is bubbled into drinking water for sanitization purposes, whereas it's fluoride ION that's is sometimes added for dental purposes.

I've read that in some parts of Europe they bubble ozone into drinking water for sanitization purposes, but ozone is so reactive that it is removed rapidly, leaving the water susceptible to bacteria.

In fact, he was quite peeves that The Jungle just led to the FDA.

One reason the Pure Food and Drug Act really took off was that the companies who could afford the regulations took advantage of it drive their competition out of business. H.J. Heinz was one of the beneficiaries, IIRC.

354 After the covid madness, I decided to finally go to listen to Dr Andrew Wakefield for myself. He is the Doctor Who first noticed a correlation between Autism and the MMR vaccine given to children at age 18 months. A friend of mine who works with mentally retarded children says that after they started giving the kids that shot she couldn't tell me how many mothers over the last 30 years or so have come to her and said that their children developed autism within 48 hours after having that injection.

So I finally listened to his interviews on Rumble and the man is the farthest thing from a quack. Brilliant and thoughtful and soft spoken and very meticulous about what he claims and does not claim --- but of course he's been smeared is a conspiracy theorist.

The British Health establishment stripped him of his medical license even though his original article had 12 co-authors who were all distinguished doctors and scientists and it was peer-reviewed five times before it was published in the Lancet.

He is viewing the massive red pilling about vaccines that has been going on with a certain wry and bitter satisfaction.

357 One reason the mental hospitals/institutions were shut down was because they were full of folks who just had autism but had been diagnosed with 'psychosis'. In France they still treat autism as 'psychosis' and it's cruel. Look at pics of 1800s 'Bedlam' in London - a bunch of people with severe autism symptoms. The 'rise' is a matter of rationalising and simplifying diagnostic criteria.

359 The Bradford Hill criteria for causation are not satisfied for fluoride. This is just correlation. The hidden variable is childhood vaccinations. Childhood vaccination and brain damage does meet all the Bradford Hill criteria for brain damage. Timing and location. Dose dependency. Biological Plausibility.

Vaccine is a term created by Jenner, as the Latin name for cow is Vacca, so injecting filth from a diseased cow was called a vaccine by Jenner to prevent smallpox. In this century, we use filth from E. coli bacteria containing all kinds of DNA plasmids along with the programmed psuedourindine modified mRNA and call it a covid vaccine. Neither worked nor are working.

The childhood vaccines contain "adjuvents, AlOH" that triggers the immune system against all antigens and sometimes against self proteins and cause autoimmune disease. Sometimes the child just develops lifelong hay fever if the jab is given during ragweed season.

The aluminum adjuvants, salts, upset the delicate zeta potential of the blood. Red blood cells have a negative charge, so they repel each other and remain in suspension. The +3 charge of Aluminum ions destroy that suspention - microclots.

Alan Derschowitz: Judge Merchan is a "Tyrant" and the Worst Judge I've Ever Seen; He Threatened to Strike All of Bob Costello's Testimony -- Depriving the Defendant of His Defense Witness -- if Costello Raised an Eyebrow Over His Insane Rulings

"Hand-picked" judge.

I have observed and participated in trials throughout the world. I have seen justice and injustice in China, Russia, Ukraine, England, France, Italy, Israel, as well as in nearly 40 of our 50 states.

Nearly 40? I think you can safely go right ahead and name the number, Alan. We can handle numbers as large as 39 or 38 without having to round to the nearest ten.


But in my 60 years as a lawyer and law professor, I have never seen a spectacle such as the one I observed sitting in the front row of the courthouse yesterday.

The judge in Donald Trump's trial was an absolute tyrant, though he appeared to the jury to be a benevolent despot. He seemed automatically to be ruling against the defendant at every turn.

Many experienced lawyers raised their eyebrows when the judge excluded obviously relevant evidence when offered by the defense, while including irrelevant evidence offered by the prosecution.

But when the defense's only substantive witness, the experienced attorney Robert Costello, raised his eyebrows at one of New York Supreme Court Justice Juan Merchan's rulings, the court went berserk.

Losing his cool and showing his thin skin, the judge cleared the courtroom of everyone including the media.

For some reason, I was allowed to stay, and I observed one of the most remarkable wrong-headed biases I have ever seen. The judge actually threatened to strike all of Costello's testimony if he raised his eyebrows again.

That of course would have been unconstitutional because it would have denied the defendant his Sixth Amendment right to confront witnesses and to raise a defense.

It would have punished the defendant for something a witness was accused of doing.

Even if what Costello did was wrong, and it was not, it would be utterly improper and unlawful to strike his testimony -- testimony that undercut and contradicted the government's star witness.

The judge's threat was absolutely outrageous, unethical, unlawful and petty.

Moreover, his affect while issuing that unconstitutional threat revealed his utter contempt for the defense and anyone who testified for the defendant.

The public should have been able to see the judge in action, but because the case is not being televised, the public has to rely on the biased reporting of partisan journalists.

The judge has repeatedly allowed Michael Cohen to testify that he pleaded guilty to campaign finance charges, insinuating that those are the actions under dispute in this trial.

The defense wanted to bring in a witness to explain that those charges have nothing to do with this trial.

Judge Merchan refused.

Merchan says that only he gets to tell the jury what the law is -- even when he misstates it, or schemes with the Soros DAs to falsely imply that there are proven campaign finance abuses here.

BRAD SMITH: WHAT I WOULD HAVE TOLD THE TRUMP JURY.

In recent days, it has become clear that the Trump trial, in which Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg seeks to imprison former President Donald Trump for a maximum of 136 years over allegedly false bookkeeping, will somehow come down to federal campaign finance law. In this way: Trump is charged with falsifying his company's business records regarding his payment for a legal nondisclosure agreement with the porn actress Stormy Daniels -- and doing so with the intention of committing another crime. But prosecutors have never specified what that other crime is.

In various court filings, however, prosecutors have suggested they plan to argue that Trump intended, along with the false bookkeeping, to violate a state law that bars promoting a political candidacy "by unlawful means." That's the other crime, prosecutors will say, and the "unlawful means" will be a violation of the Federal Election Campaign Act, or FECA, the 1970s-era law that regulates political fundraising and spending in federal elections.

That would create a weird situation: a local district attorney in New York prosecuting federal law. "One would say Bragg is outside of his lane, but in this case, he's on a completely different highway," George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley told Fox News in March. "This is an effort by a state official to effectively prosecute a federal crime, a crime that the Department of Justice decided not to prosecute."

But that's what Bragg apparently plans to do. And that led the Trump defense to consult an expert in federal campaign finance law to be ready to testify in the event that Bragg's prosecutors do indeed characterize the Trump case as based on a violation of federal election law. The expert they chose was former Federal Election Commission Chairman Brad Smith, who is certainly one of the leading authorities in the nation on the application of FECA.

Smith has been an outspoken opponent of what he views is the overapplication of campaign finance law. Specifically, as this newsletter noted a couple of weeks ago, Smith "has argued that there are all sorts of things a candidate can spend money on that are not legally classifiable as 'for the purpose of influencing any election.'" Among those things would be the nondisclosure agreement Trump reached with Daniels.

The problem for Trump is that Judge Juan Merchan does not want to hear from Smith. Early on, Merchan barred Smith from testifying about virtually anything that had anything to do with the Trump case. He barred Smith from testifying about the campaign finance laws at the heart of Bragg's charges against Trump. He barred Smith from testifying about anything except general facts about the job of the FEC or the definition of some common campaign terms. In the end, the Trump team decided it was not worth calling Smith to testify under what amounted to a judicial gag order.

So Smith left the courthouse without testifying on Monday. As he headed home, we had a phone conversation about what he would have told the jury had Merchan allowed it.

Hit the link for his full would-be testimony. Basically, he wanted to explain that when people hear legal terms like "unlawfully influence," they will read their own common sense plain-meaning definitions into the term.

But he wanted to point out the FEC had made many, many rulings on what unlawful influence is -- and what it is not -- that are the controlling meaning.


Smith offered another example. "Go back to 1999. Hillary Clinton buys a house in New York. She bought it clearly to influence the election -- I mean absolutely, right? -- because she had to have a residence in New York. It is totally indisputable -- that is a reason why she bought it. But it's not a campaign expenditure. It doesn't matter. People buy houses. We would have wanted to inform the jury about the notion of personal use and talked about the idea that what is a campaign expense is an objective test, not a subjective test."

When it comes to the details of the Trump prosecution, knowing how campaign finance law works has led Smith to believe that what is alleged to be the core violation in the case, that paying Daniels amounted to a campaign contribution or a campaign expenditure, is simply not true. "I can tell you my personal belief is that clearly paying hush money, or paying for a nondisclosure agreement, does not constitute a campaign expense," Smith said. "To use an example I've often used, it's not a campaign expense if a businessperson is running for office and his businesses are getting sued, and if he goes to his company lawyers and says, 'I want to settle these lawsuits against us. We've got some wage employment lawsuits and a woman is alleging sexual harassment. We've got 36,000 employees, but we've got these three complaints and the press will make a big deal about them. So I want you to settle these.' And the company lawyers say, 'No, these are great cases we should win. We shouldn't settle them.' He says, 'I don't care. I'm running for office. I don't want press stories on it. I want you to settle them quietly.' Well, he cannot use campaign funds to pay that settlement, even though he is clearly doing it for the purpose of influencing his campaign."

"It's kind of similar to what went on here," Smith continued, referring to the Trump case. "So my personal belief is that this clearly would not have been a campaign expenditure, never had to be reported, and therefore was not misreported."

Smith stressed again that he did not plan to testify about the specifics of the Trump case. Instead, he hoped to "lay out some of the factual work of the law -- how does the law work in practice?" But that's not going to happen.

As I've mentioned before: Even though Merchan made illegal donations to Biden and the Democrats -- I guess judges aren't allowed to do that in NY -- he was "hand-picked" to oversee the Trump Lynching Party.

"It is very clear, they say you can't make political contributions and he did," Turley said on "Fox and Friends" after co-host Ainsley Earhardt mentioned the donations. "And the fact it is 'de minimus' or small, really, I think, misses the point. You make donations to show your support, that is what that $15 did."

"What's also concerning for many is that Merchan was not randomly selected, he was hand-picked as the judge for this case, and many of us don't understand it," Turley continued. "You have a judge who is donor to the president, whose daughter is a major Democratic operative, you would think this would be an easy call, there are plenty of other judges."

Loren Merchan, the judge's daughter, works for a firm that helped Democratic causes raise $93 million off Trump's indictment in the case centering around a $130,000 payout to porn star Stormy Daniels, the New York Post reported. Merchan expanded a previously-issued gag order April 1 after former President Trump posted a link to the New York Post's report.

From the beginning, everything that has been done to Trump has been perverted to charge him with a crime even when no crime has been committed. For there to be fraud someon had to be harmed. But no one was harmed in the RE trial. How can a person be brought to trial when there is no crime?
There was no state crime committed and yet Trump put on trial for a Federal crime that the Feds said wasn't a crime.
He was sued for calling Jean Carrol a liar when she called him a rapist but couldn't remember when the rape took place.

Posted by: Blake
--------
No power in criminal trials for a judge to issue a guilty verdict. They can set aside a guilty verdict by the jury or dismiss the case before it goes to the jury via a directed verdict but not give a directed verdict to the prosecution.

The closest thing in a criminal trial is unfairly distorting the law in the instructions to the jury but even a judge cannot overrule a jury verdict acquitting the defendant nor can appellate courts. Nor can a judge force a verdict if there are holdout jurors and those jurors cannot be forced off for alternates unless they refuse to deliberate at all.

If the game is rigged, you cheat-- you don't follow the rules.

Worse: The conviction is guaranteed. The one and only way Trump wins is a mistrial that pushes this past the election.
So bring the witness the judge barred, have him testify, let the defense object, tell the jury the defense only objects to hide facts from them, that the judges is helping them hide facts--piss the judge off so much right in front of the jury, that he can't help himself and calls a mistrial.

Take the sanctions, the admonishment--but you still won by scuttling the trial.

148 "But when the defense's only substantive witness, the experienced attorney Robert Costello, raised his eyebrows at one of New York Supreme Court Justice Juan Merchan's rulings, the court went berserk."

Yes. IT WAS PERFORMATIVE, the equivalent of an attorney banging the table because the State's got nothing! The point was to blow up at the perfect defense witness in front of the jury to purposefully taint him and rehabilitate the prosecution at the final stage before the jury debates.

This isn't rocket surgery.

Steve Cortes @CortesSteve 3h
🚨Wow. @AOC accidentally says the quiet part out loud. She mocks President Trump for holding a rally in the South Bronx and brags about how the Democrats’ lawfare is forcing him to stay in New York City:

“By the way, Trump’s doing it in the South Bronx not to make a point but because he’s got court. And the man practically has the legal version of an ankle bracelet around him, and he can’t leave the 5 boroughs because he always has to be in court. So it is truly an embarrassment to him. And I am looking forward to the response of everyday Bronxites talking about how they feel about him coming to their backyard.”

Trump with his past history has never been one I would compare with Cromwell or Franco among others. Don't think he wants to be the cause of a new civil war but it might happen anyway depending on what happens in the next several months. Fanatics, once they start down that road, pretty much force the issue and can drag even the reluctant portions of the Deep State with them.

Trump lawyer Christina Bobb says when she switched to being counsel for Trump as it relates to election integrity she has had US Marshalls show up at her house, the FBI, she was interrogated by Biden’s DOJ twice and now she is facing up to 50 years in prison for helping to bring election challenges in Arizona.

By a DA that “won” her race by 207 votes with 9,000 votes left they refuse to count.

This is what the gestapo look like. The best way to show people just how “legitimate” the 2020 election was is to intimidate, harass and try to imprison lawyers who filed legal challenges about its legitimacy.

This is America. This is happening in America. Are people getting where we are?

Never in the history of our country have we seen a judiciary as corrupt as New York's. They have ignored the SCOTUS ruling on Bruen, subverted the state constitution and the will of the people on gerrymandering, and have continued to bless every bit of misconduct including this kangaroo court.

Sorry, NY gets what it deserves and I hope they continue to get it good and hard. They also better not come to my neck of the woods and get in trouble. They'll get the same kind of "justice" they're giving.

182 The judge has repeatedly allowed Michael Cohen to testify that he pleaded guilty to campaign finance charges, insinuating that those are the actions under dispute in this trial.

The defense wanted to bring in a witness to explain that those charges have nothing to do with this trial.


As a matter of legalities, a witness is not the tool to use to inform a jury of the distinction between the case Cohen pleaded guilty in and the present case.

That said, if the inference could be drawn by the jury that Cohen had already been found guilty in Trump's case, then it was most definitely the obligation of the judge to disclose in open court that the Cohen case was not the Trump case, and to admonish the jury that Cohen's guilty plea had absolutely nothing to do with Trump's guilt or innocence.

All you do is increase the number of pissed off opponents over time as you ramp up the idiocy. So people go around, under, above, and through the facade of the regimes created.

Especially since the Prosecution has yet to show that Trump was made aware of the payoff.

223 Whig, I am minded of the assassination of Diem which solved nothing. seizing the top spots is relatively easy, it is dealing with the elements that want things to go on as they were is what is hard.
It can be done, the Soviets almost made it a century, but the basic difference between a dictatorship and a franchise democracy is the number of people you have to keep happy. That is more of a societal thing than not.
Posted by: Kindltot
=======
It took the Soviets over ten years to consolidate their regime and that was after a relatively popular revolution spearheaded by workers and soldiers. Took something similar in Mexico after the last revolt in 1910. However, in both cases, it was the end of killing that was most popular not the revolutions per se. From what I gather about the Chinese Revolution and the Cambodian one, that is true of them as well. Both regimes though went too far after consolidation with the Khmer Rouge and the Cultural Revolution which ended the Khmer Rouge regime and damn near ended Mao when the PLA told him to end it or else.

So, the question now is how many deaths will come from the regime collapse, not whether it will collapse or not.

"The FBI is a U.S. version of the Russian “State Police”; and the FBI is deployed -almost exclusively- to attack domestic enemies of those who control government, while they protect the interests of the U.S. Fourth Branch of Government. That is the clear and accurate domestic prism to contextualize their perceived mission: “domestic violent extremists pose the greatest threat” to their objective.

Put another way, “We The People”, who fight against government abuse and usurpation, are the FBI’s actual and literal enemy."

Fair enough. I consider it an ecological fallacy--they equate a society with a family but regardless of what people tell themselves, you can only truly love what is within your own circle of family and close friends. A functional family will follow from each according to their abilites and to each according to their needs because of love of their children. That love and sacrifice attenuates as the relationship becomes more and more distant. Can one love a whole town population? An oblast/state? A region? A nation? The world?

It is a utopianism that does not follow the real behavior of individuals and creating new soviet man of socialism uber alles including family was always doomed to failure.

the last two ended because the command economy was collapsing in spite of repression and no one was willing to play, everyone including the power brokers knew the end was coming and they could feel the breeze beneath their heels.
Soviet union ended the same way, first came the need to fix the shortages, then came the need to deal with the hyperinflation that the shortages were hiding, then various SSRs said they wanted out and were willing to either deal or fight. (the deal was Federation of sorts)

IIRC Allende's tenure in Chile ended in a similar way, and every time there is a revolution or coup in Argentina it is because their controlled economy craps the bed, yet again.

No, it has not been to date...and it maybe inconsequential to Merchan in the end, he's certainly counting on that financially. He played the cards for what might profit him. And no one in NYS, those in a position that ought to know better, have thought to reign him in as of this date. They'll suffer to make him a rich man, I guess...

But it is, and will be, devastating to NY. The state voters or their idiotic citizens, may never realize it, or recognize it, or even care...but unless they course correct judicially immediately...it's the end of them as a state that will attract any future business concerns or influx of wealth...in that regard, they are about three years behind CA...but that gap is closing fast.

Bill Melugin: Groups Comprised of Nothing but Men from Iran, Pakistan, China, and Turkey Are Now Slipping Past Our Border, With Nary a Mexican in Sight

Video below.

Meanwhile, Chuck Schumer is presenting the already-rejected fake border security bill. You know, the bill that hands out visas and work permits to tens of thousands of illegals, but offers no actual border security.

Republicans in both chambers of Congress are preparing to band together to block any hope of a Democrat-backed border bill getting to the finish line.

In a letter to senators dated Sunday evening, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., revealed his plan to bring an immigration bill to the floor once again after it was rejected primarily by Senate Republicans in February.

"We are hopeful this bipartisan proposal will bring serious-minded Republicans back to the table to advance this bipartisan solution for our border," he wrote.


...

The White House promptly backed Schumer's plan, with press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre calling on "every senator to put partisan politics aside and vote to secure the border."

Republicans were quick to push back on the majority leader's characterization of the bill. "The fake border bill will fail, again, because it does nothing to seriously secure the border -- just cement outrageous levels of illegal immigration," wrote Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.

"Ironically, some Democrats will vote against it, because even pretending to limit illegal immigration is a step too far for them," he added.

The bill failed a test vote in February, by a vote of 49-50, short of the 60 votes needed to proceed.

Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., slammed Democrats reviving the bill as "political theatre."

"He thinks this vote will make you think Republicans are to blame for Biden's border crisis," he wrote on X.

Biden's White House, filthy with lies and cocaine, is claiming that if you don't vote for this bill, which officially sets a permissible level of 120,000 illegals per month entering our country before deportation is even considered, that means You Love Fentanyl.

Just last week, Biden admitted he was lying when the claimed he "needed" this bill to deport illegals. The fake border security measure in this bill gives the president the power to deport illegals if daily illegal crossings exceed 4,000 a day for several days.

Only then will deportations begin.

But Biden already has this power to deport, which he just admitted when he announced last week that he would implement this policy without the fake security bill he claims was necessary to take this step.

And yet-- Republicans are scheming to find a way to vote in favor of the fake security bill

Senator Barasso is proposing we use unspent covid funds to build some of the wall.

Sound good? It's not. He's proposing this as an amendment to the terrible fake border bill that guarantees us 120,000 illegal aliens every month.

I think this is intended to sweeten Comprehensive Amnesty for Republicans.

More left-aligned "Republicans" Conning the Rubes.

A new bill could designate unused federal COVID-19 funds to be used to continue the construction of the southern border wall as an illegal immigration crisis continues and voters cite the issue as one of the most important going into the November elections.

Senate Republican Conference Chairman John Barrasso, R-Wyo., introduced an amendment on Tuesday to a Democrat-backed border bill that is set to come back to the floor later this week.


Titled "The Build the Wall Act of 2024," the measure would create a "Southern Border Wall Construction Fund" and instruct the Department of Homeland Security to use unobligated funds that were initially authorized for pandemic recovery.

"Border walls work. Before President Biden came into office, we were well on our way to a secure and safe southern border. But on his first day in office, the president and Democrats rolled out the welcome mat for millions of illegal immigrants to come into our nation," Barrasso said in a statement.

If you're serious about border security, propose it as a stand-alone measure. Don't just propose it to provide cover to Republicans for voting in favor of f*cking amnesty for the thousandth time.

I really hate these people. I hate them more than I hate the Democrats.

Hmm. There's a term for this kind of thing. I'm trying to think of it.

What's it called when there's flashy legislation proposed to either appease the base or pretend to respond to a problem, but it has no chance of winning yet nonetheless creates lots of press coverage, think pieces and great soudbites while generating increased political donations from the people they're duping?

Damn, I wish I could remember that term. It seems appropriate here, especially since "both sides" are doing it simultaneously with the same piece of legislation.

33 But Biden already has this power to deport, which he just admitted when he announced last week that he would implement this policy without the fake security bill he claims was necessary to take this step.

And yet-- Republicans are scheming to find a way to vote in favor of the fake security bill

This is who they are.

And that's probably why they want the bill - to tie Trump's hands, not force Biden's.

I consider the push for this another minor piece of evidence that the Party is considering letting him win.

117 It's only a question of time before these fit, capable, military-age men from countries other than Mexico activate.

An ordinary person watching the news can see what's going on and believe there is a high probability of an impending terror attack in the US similar to what happened in Israel, albeit far larger and more destructive in scale. In a sane world, our government would reach the same conclusion and act. Our borders would be immediately sealed, with a host of federal agencies mobilized to find out who and when.

All conjecture of course but I can't help but think Biden's handlers want such an attack to happen. Maybe they see a cataclysmic terrorist attack as the last-ditch means by which they finally stop Trump.

This would be counterproductive. A major terror event due to a border crosser would be a disaster so extreme that even the cheat might fail. Unless it's to be used as an excuse to cancel elections and just openly transform into an open dictatorship - an extremely high-risk strategy that likely has more risks than benefits given current conditions of unfettered power anyway - they probably want to *avoid* a major terror event before the election.

This would be counterproductive. A major terror event due to a border crosser would be a disaster so extreme that even the cheat might fail. Unless it's to be used as an excuse to cancel elections and just openly transform into an open dictatorship - an extremely high-risk strategy that likely has more risks than benefits given current conditions of unfettered power anyway - they probably want to *avoid* a major terror event before the election.

Afterward, it might be useful. But before? Risky. Extremely risky.

Who were the "ultra right wing" across the span of history? Perhaps you can articulate that for me. I seem to remember left wing Democrats hanging people because of their skin color, and forcing them to use separate facilities. They also blocked schoolhouses and polling places. Their upper echelon blocked legislation proclaiming the civil rights that were already in our Constitution, but had to be restated in federal law because the "ultra left wing" still didn't get it even after a civil war that killed more Americans than any other conflict.

Yeah, falling apart. And yes, there is a correlation between the number of homeless and the number of crimes committed. I've talked with a few, and they fall into a few categories (not mutually exclusive):
1) Crazies
2) Addicted
3) Lazy folks who don't want to work

The Torricelli Option Is On the Table: Leftwing Bloomberg Begins Polling Trump v. Kamala Harris, Anticipating a Biden Departure

Hilarious.

Obviously, Trump thumps Kumala.

But why even ask? What are they hearing?

One number I don't like is the tie in Nevada (between Trump and Biden, not Kumala). They're tied at 47%-- but then Trump goes out to a five point lead when RFKJr. and "others" are included. Trump is definitely losing some of his blue-collar white former-Democrat voters to RFKJr.

MXMNews:

Former President Donald Trump is leading Joe Biden in key battleground states, according to the latest Bloomberg/Morning Consult poll. Voters overwhelmingly trust Trump to handle the economy and immigration over Biden.

Key Details:

Trump leads Biden in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Nevada, Arizona, Wisconsin, and North Carolina.

Top voter issues: economy (35%) and immigration (14%).

Voters trust Trump more on the economy (50% vs. 37%) and immigration (51% vs. 34%).

Reminder:

I don't expect that publicizing this will win back Trump-to-RFKJr. voters, because they're Democrats and probably don't like the Tea Party.

Jim Geraghty considers Biden's line that #ThePollsAreSkewed and wonders: But if they're not skewed...?

Biden's up by a percentage point in Michigan, 46 percent to 45 percent. Perhaps the best news for the president is that this survey shows a tie in Nevada, where previous polling has had Trump ahead, sometimes by a wide margin.

But at the very end of the article, it reads, "The statistical margin of error is plus or minus 1 percentage point across the seven states; 3 percentage points in Arizona, Georgia and Pennsylvania; 4 percentage points in Michigan, North Carolina, and Wisconsin, and 5 percentage points in Nevada."

Ah. So they barely called any Nevada voters, and the MOE Is large.

He recaps the Biden spin that the polls are skewed, and the claim that there's a Secret Surge for Scranton Joe that the media are hiding.


Does that sound right to you? That the press doesn't want to write about a Democratic incumbent having momentum against Donald Trump?

Now, both nationally and in swing states, there are a lot of pollsters in business. Indisputably, some are better than others. And you can definitely find outliers that have Biden in better shape here and there.

But every pollster has Biden's job-approval rating in lousy shape. This morning, the new national Reuters-Ipsos poll "showed just 36 percent of Americans approve of Biden's job performance as president, down from 38 percent in April. It was a return to the lowest approval rating of his presidency, last seen in July 2022."

If only a bit more than a third of Americans think Biden is doing a good job, would you expect him to have a lot of momentum in the presidential race? Yes, Trump is a deeply flawed candidate, but he's also the most likely alternative.

Ezra Klein is among those on the left side of the aisle trying to sound the alarm for the Biden campaign: "To the extent polls have been wrong in recent presidential elections, they've been wrong because they've been biased toward Democrats. Trump ran stronger in 2016 and 2020 than polls predicted."

Is Biden campaigning like a guy who's well ahead? Maybe Biden's latest round of race demagoguery is standard-issue for the man who told African Americans that Mitt Romney was going to put them back in chains. Does cutting off aid to Israel seem like the kind of move you make when everything's going well? Does the administration's obsession with forgiving student-loan debt suggest confidence in the likely turnout among young voters?


I know that poll posts are as disliked as Disney posts. I'll post another one more quickly than usual.

42 CIA Prevented Hunter's Hollywood Tax Sugar Daddy From Becoming Federal Witness: Whistleblower

"They could not pursue Hollywood lawyer Kevin Morris as a witness based on information received from the CIA."

In a Wednesday statement, the House Ways and Means Committee wrote that whistleblower documents indicate "In 2021, Assistant U.S. District Attorney Leslie Wolf told investigators they could not pursue Hollywood lawyer Kevin Morris as a witness based on information she received from the CIA. Investigators were never provided the same information that AUSA Wolf received."

"From whistleblower-provided evidence, we know Hunter Biden and his business associates made millions from selling access to Joe Biden and the quote ‘brand’ that is Joe Biden around the world. We know President Biden’s denials of any knowledge or involvement are not true," reads the letter. "We know the Department of Justice tried to undermine, stonewall, and block the investigation into the Biden family, including President Biden."

50 Do they ever poll about Biden's social unrest or nah bro?

Seems to me if Trump wa president and his voters were out blocking roads, beating Jews, and calling for their death, there might be a survey or two about it.

But probably nah bro.

54 Trump is definitely losing some of his blue-collar white former-Democrat voters to RFKJr.

Unpossible!
Oh wait no that is possible and very predictable since RFK makes a lot of sense to those voters. He’s the only one ever addressing real issues like the corporatization of housing. Has Trump ever said anything about it?

Posted by: Montec at May 22, 2024 02:35 PM (Y6Wgg)

55 One number I don't like is the tie in Nevada (between Trump and Biden, not Kumala). They're tied at 47%-- but then Trump goes out to a five point lead when RFKJr. and "others" are included. Trump is definitely losing some of his blue-collar white former-Democrat voters to RFKJr.
++++
Then how does he go out to a five-point lead when "others" are included? Or are the other "others" peeling off more Democrat votes than RFK pulls off Republican votes?

58 Dr. David Morens, an Ex-NIAID senior scientific adviser to Dr. Mengele, American Edition Fauci, was coached by the NIH "FOIA lady" about how to avoid having to comply with "smoking gun" FOIA requests by using GMail, deleting emails, hand delivering documents, and the always go to method of destroying evidence. All in the name of "The Science" related to Covid.

Not spelled out in the NY Post article is who, besides Dr. David Morens, was also involved with stonewalling probes into Covid, but it should be noted he worked under Dr. Fauci from 1998 to 2022. So it would be premature to state that Dr. Fauci was involved with the creation of Covid, beyond funding the research, the subsequent coverup, and that he was the key figure in the death of millions. That would be just wrong as would thinking he should be hung after given Trump style show trial.

62 I'm not seeing Kamala as viable. However, just voting Democrat is in millions and millions of people's DNA, as it's been put. Not so, of course, with Republicans.

My guess is that there might just be enough turned off Democrats that would not vote for Biden or Harris to lead to a narrow win for Trump.

But I also think if you plug virtually ANY Democrat at the top of the ticket other than one of these two, they would win.

Not easy to accomplish with the politics involved, but just watch them work.

I still haven't heard why I should trust public polling from anyone.

Or what incentive public polls have to be accurate.

They were horrendously wrong in 2020, and we're supposed to forget it.

75 Does that sound right to you? That the press doesn't want to write about a Democratic incumbent having momentum against Donald Trump?

I think I've seen that line of delusional thinking on DU:

NYT inadvertently indicates that Biden is probably pulling away. The New York Times must have access to some data showing that Biden is starting to pull away (or perhaps that Trump is falling behind), because their Saturday online “front page” is working hard to drag Biden down. Here are the “above the fold” stories up right now:

Headline: In His Beloved Philadelphia, Biden Faces Wariness From Black Voters
Headline: Biden Flipped Georgia in 2020. This Year Could Be Different.
And the top Opinion piece is: Why the Manhat
