The Morning Report — 2/29/24

shellgames.jpg

Good morning, kids. Happy Leap Year. Want to know what desperation smells like? If a hack-in-black from Cook County, IL – arguably one of, if not the most corrupt counties and states in the nation that is infamous for the routine rigging of elections – moves to take Trump off the ballot . . .

Remember. This is Crook County. Home of the Daley Machine that coined the phrase "Vote early and often." Where dead people continue to constitute a significant percentage of registered Democrat voters cycle after cycle. If they have to resort to pulling this kind of stunt, that's desperation. It's also disgusting in the extreme but that goes without saying. Papa Doc Duvalier just took a break from being spit-roasted by Pazuzu and Eva Peron with a strap-on to point his finger up at us from the depths of Hell and laugh.

Cook County Judge Tracie Porter issued a ruling Wednesday evening disqualifying Trump from the March 19 Republican primary and the Nov. 5 general election ballots, citing the 14th Amendment’s “insurrection clause.” The Supreme Court heard oral arguments Feb. 8 on Trump’s appeal of the Colorado Supreme Court’s Dec. 19 ruling disqualifying him.

“The arrogance of this is appalling, and waiting until this late in the day to do it, giving the president, the former president just until Friday to file an appeal to the Supreme Court. It is already Wednesday, and then to say at the end of it, she issues an order that says my ruling will be further stayed if the U.S. Supreme Court enters an opinion inconsistent with this order,” Wisenberg told Fox News host Laura Ingraham. “Well, guess what? If they do what most people think they’re going to do, they’re going to enter an opinion that makes it impossible for Illinois to take him off the ballot. So, the arrogance of that is just, should not astonish me, but it does.”

As I said, this is such abject hackery that it can only mean they know that despite all the sham charges and Stalinist show trials being hurled at Trump, they fear he is going to prevail. Even with all the rigged courts and juries arrayed against him, they are all collectively houses of cards built on foundations of sand that will collapse in and on top of Willis, Smith, Chutkan, Bragg, Engoron and all the rest of the soulless amoral scoundrels who have played their part in dragging us down into a cesspool of banana republic tyranny.

Here's another tell that reeks of flop-sweat and panic. Bull dyke Bob's Big Boy-bobbed Rachel Maddow reverberated this bilge off the walls of her poisonous, prolapsing uterus:

“The cravenness of the court is evident in what they are doing with the pacing here. You know, putting this off for seven weeks and sitting on it for two weeks for no reason. Obviously, pushing all of the cases that they can push to a point where Trump will be standing for election before any of us have heard the verdicts in any of those cases. Got it. It is the timing. It is the idea that the immunity thing is an open question. Is presidential immunity and open question? What is the most famous pardon in American history? Gerald Ford for pardoning Richard Nixon once he was resigned and a former president. Why did Gerald Ford pardon him? As a result, occurring before his resignation as president of the meeting as a result of stuff he did while president, quote, Richard Nixon has become liable to possible indictment in trial and whether or not he shall be prosecuted depends on findings of the appropriate grand jury and discussion of the authorized prosecutor.”

She added, “The idea that this is an open question and it might be that a former president can never be tried for something that he did because he was president when he did it is disproven by a plain reading of American history and the whole justification for Richard Nixon being pardoned in the first place. The idea that it has to be taken up is them saying that the sky is green. I think even for the non-lawyers among us to be able to say, this sky is not green even on our worst day. This is BS, and you are doing this as a tactic to help for political friend, partisan patron. For you to say that this is something the court needs to decide because it is unclear in the law is fragrant bullpucky and they know it and don’t care that we know it. That is disturbing about the future legitimacy of the court.”

This is in reaction to the decision by SCOTUS to put a serious torpedo into the attempt to prosecute Trump for the trumped up insurrection charges vis a vis the question of his immunity and crucially prevent him from both running for and ultimately winning a re-RE-election.

The salient point that is lost on Maddow is that unlike Nixon, who may or may not have been guilty of crimes that might have resulted in some form of criminal sentencing, Trump has not only neither been charged nor convicted of any crimes, let alone insurrection (at least not yet), the overwhelming evidence shows that in no way, shape or form did he do anything other than exercise his first amendment rights to peacefully protest what he thought – and what we know beyond any doubt whatsoever – was a stolen election.

Good for SCOTUS for taking this up now and hopefully putting an end to this Stalinist banana republic bullshit. Then again, what actual power does the Supreme Court really have considering that even after ruling Joey Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants' original illegal excusing of a billion or so dollars in student loan debt was illegal, Joey pardoned another billion in a naked vote-buying scheme to attract a youth vote that is abandoning him like everyone else?

I hesitate calling this a constitutional crisis since it is obvious to all that the Junta in power has shredded and burned the bits and pieces of that parchment that it doesn't use to either shield itself or otherwise bastardize it for its own purposes of forcing socialist tyranny down our throats.

Meanwhile, in a not altogether unrelated story vis a vis SCOTUS, Elaine Chao has told her mock turtle husband "you go now!"

I have been waiting for a very long time to write this column, and yet I can’t quite summon up the joy and relief I thought I’d get out of it. We’re speaking, of course, about the long-awaited denouement of Mitch McConnell, the current Senate minority leader and longtime head of the GOP’s caucus in that body for 17 long, brutal, underachieving years. . .

. . . If you’ve been a regular reader of this column, you’re aware of two nicknames I’ve given to McConnell and the brand of “leadership” predominating in the Senate caucus he’s controlled since 2007. I call him “Morphine Mitch,” which isn’t so much a takeoff on as a correction of the “Cocaine Mitch” nickname he earned when a ship owned by his family was found by authorities to have been carrying a load of Bolivian marching powder a few years back. “Cocaine Mitch” might have some validity, but in truth it’s far from accurate. With cocaine, people are energized, or at least that’s what I understand. And nobody has ever been energized by Mitch McConnell. . .

. . . McConnell has actively sabotaged conservatives who have run for the Senate. It started all the way back in 2010 when he did it to Joe Miller, a Tea Party conservative who by all rights ought to be in his third term representing the people of Alaska, and it’s been a mostly unbroken string since. And in 2022, McConnell pulled out every stop he could to ensure that Republicans didn’t capture a Senate majority — especially screwing over Don Bolduc, Blake Masters, Adam Laxalt, and Mehmet Oz, not to mention the GOP nominee Kelly Tshibaka in Alaska, who ended up losing to swamp rat Lisa Murkowski thanks to McConnell’s well-documented machinations there. . .

. . . The Senate never cuts the federal budget. It never defunds, say, Planned Parenthood. It couldn’t unwind Obamacare. It can’t control the border. I could go on all night naming things the majority of Americans want but McConnell has never produced.

But he sure can rally the troops to fire off billions of dollars to keep the Ukraine war going. McConnell is terrific at counting votes, mind you. It isn’t that he’s incompetent. It’s that it’s far more important for Mitch McConnell to have a majority within the Senate GOP caucus than it is for the caucus to have a majority in the Senate. And should Republicans ever stop underachieving in those Senate races, they’d be sitting on 55 to 60 seats. Which would be pretty good for Republican voters. But not so good for Morphine Mitch . . .

. . . McConnell would rather see Democrats elected than more Josh Hawleys or Ted Cruzes who ask rude questions at caucus meetings.

Friend and friend of the blog Scott McKay eviscerates Yertle McChiCom in excruciating detail. And yet, for whatever reasons, he managed to prevent a truly horrid scumbag in the form of Merrick Garland from getting on the Supreme Court. If I want to be cynical, as is my wont, I'd say he made a deal in anticipation of Hillary Clinton winning in 2016 to allow her to name Ruth Bader-Meinhoff's successor. And we all know how that worked out.

While Trump did get three picks to the court, at best Gorsuch, Kavanaugh and Coney-Island have not been of the Scalia/Thomas/Alito bent, have they? And now we have the Trump "immunity" and 14th Amendment bastardizations coming up, as well as the less well known but perhaps equally crucial challenges to Deep State Leviathan in the form of the Chevron case as well as that of attempt to tax unrealized profits.

As far as McConnell's replacement, the name of Rand Paul has been floated by none other than noted conservative stalwart . . . RFK Jr?!

Tell Maddow to load that in her sybian and ride it.

RFK, Jr. should not be supported or attacked from the Right. He's not going to matter in '24, but in the future, he may. He's the Democrats' Trump. I would love to see him become their bete noir that they hate and fear like the GOP does with Orangeman.

82 Mitch McConnell represents the very worst of the GOPe. He wants to have just enough power to make a critical difference in their agenda, but doesn't want to have any actual responsibility for the consequences. That's why he wants a razor-thin minority in the Senate. He *prefers* being in the minority. Then he can throw up his hands and say "We tried!" when the majority goes against him, even though he secretly agrees with the majority agenda.

He's scum every bit as corrupt as Schumer or FJB.

110 When SCOTUS slapped down Colorado's attempt to disqualify Trump they explained in great detail why Colorado was wrong.

Other states, Illinois for example, took note of what was "wrong" in Colorado's case and probably have been working on the specific wording in their complaints to get around that.

For example, Trump hasn't been charged with insurrection. What if he was? Does it matter if the activist judge has no standing?

Porter has jumped the gun here. If she had charged Trump with insurrection first, then did the DQ maybe she would have had a shot.

At least 5 of 9 justices on SCOTUS would likely want to be rid of Trump. They just need someone smart enough to make the case to them.

Strong possibility. Barbour skulked around in the fatter shadows of the halls of power for many years after he formally handed the GOP machine to McConnell. These guys really go away, until death or infirmity carry them off.

But, as you note, McConnell's going braindead at this time. He might not have the faculties to keep his successor at his heel like Barbour did with him. Which would be good - without a smarter or older human botfly to guide him, whichever younger maggot replaces him will have a harder time holding the shell game together.

In any event, whoever it is will be the last powerful Republican, and likely not for long. Their thing is just about over.

It doesn't seem like there is much chance he will lose. The oral arguments made it pretty clear that none of the justices, even the liberal ones, thought this case had any merit.

The IL judge did say her decision could be stayed if Trump filed an appeal to the SC but it had to be done by tomorrow. I think the justices are getting pissed at these lower court whack jobs trying to jam them up.

150 I'm sure there's a high powered Imam who can interpret a Surrah to the point of justifying continuing to fight during Ramadan or whatever it is. Heck, an Imam has already justified the enlarging of the anus through butt sex so the anal cavity can accommodate a bomb.

Oh, yes, numerous imams have justified violence during Ramadan as it furthers the cause of Islam, which is pre-eminent over all.

And I'd forgotten about the other part. I didn't need the reminder...

153 Daily radio propaganda has been pushing some new, updated covid booster. Usually these are a one day panic thing and gone the next but this is their day or fourth day in a row. Why now?

154 Odd. In the first article about interdicting plutonium to Iran, the Spectator mentions it in the article header.

In the body of the article, the only nuclear materials being mentioned are uranium as yellowcake, and thorium.

That's some quality reporting there.

177 >>I appreciate your optimism Jackstraw, but also remember what happened with Hillary and a variety of other issues where we got screwed and NOTHING HAPPENED to the perps.

No so much optimism as what I heard the justices say during the questioning. Alito made one particularly telling point when he asked Colorado's lawyer if she was concerned that giving a state the power to remove a candidate they didn't like would lead to chaos going forward.

The lawyer she wasn't concerned and Alito clearly indicated he did. I don't think some of them particularly like Trump but this case is clearly idiotic and unconstitutional. The SC would lose all credibility if they let it stand and they know it.

LOL. This kind of thing (and there are many of them) is Islam's only redeeming quality... They inherited our obsessive Jewish legalism, but they have far fewer brain cells than us, and they grafted a bunch of nation states on top of it. So it leads to some hilarious theocratic jurisprudence.

As ugly as Obamacare is, it's not a direct challenge to the power of the Supreme Court.

Following the meeting, Thai authorities raided a Bangkok office where Ebisawa had deposited the radioactive materials, which were then sent to the U.S. for analysis. American officials confirmed Ebisawa’s claims that the nuclear materials truly were weapons-grade.

It likely won't matter. There is a hierarchy of outcomes.

Best: Trump is an insurrectionist and removed from contention

Middling: It's an "open question" or a "narrow ruling" by the SCOTUS, and they keep everything open until after the election. If he loses (likely), they expropriate him and lock him up until he's dead as an object lesson to other uppity outsiders. If we wins (unlikely), the continue the prosecutions and the Party uses convictions as an excuse to impeach and remove.

Worst: They lose all the prosecutions but the Party uses these "obvious miscarriages of justice" to justify the next round of eterna-investigations and special counsels and rationalize the next series of impeachments and hopefully removals.

All of this stuff is doing its job and all of the outcomes are acceptable. Not to mention the direct popular politics part, which is turning off as many voters as possible and creating a screen to help make election thefts less obvious ("it should surprise nobody that Trump lost Election X - I mean, voters hate corrupt old criminals!").

200 There is great irony in all the lawfare being waged against Trump by the junta; namely, it’s obviously helping Trump politically. In an alternate universe where Trump has zero indictments and no financial penalties from spurious civil cases… in that universe, Trump would be in the middle of a hotly contested primary instead of cruising easily to the nomination crushing all his opponents. And it’s helping him in the general as well because lots of Americans recognize the fundamental unfairness at work and don’t like it. It makes Brandon’s junta even more unattractive

But they couldn’t help themselves; the hate is so strong they’ll continue to drive forward even if it takes them off a cliff

205 So I’m listening to a Paul Thoreaux book about traveling Africa. He did it in the mid 2000s late in his life. I think he was almost 80. I’ve never heard a greater takedown of a society or region. He literally tears them to shreds.

The funny thing is Paul Theroux has traditionally been considered to be a liberal and atheist by the way. it is an interesting read to hear a liberal atheist dismantle an entire continent, telling truth that would get him excommunicated by the left so quickly his head would spin. Nothing about amazing about it, but it is telling how quickly the Overton window has moved, and how far the left has gone to become this dangerous, absurd thing we are facing so quickly..

There was a video circulating a few days ago about a trucker telling the libs where they could take their policies. He says there are around 350,000 independent truckers in America who are free to accept or reject delivering goods at will. They can easily all choose to reject deliveries to NYC. Though some will still go if the price is right, of course.

In South Africa, trucks are routinely looted by marauders. Mercenaries convoy critical shipments, the rest are subject to highwaymen. The highwaymen get some of them.

Excellent point. The extra costs of delivery will be passed on to customers. The lack of goods will lead to more desperate citizens. They may start hijacking trucks to get the goods directly, which makes it much more expensive to deliver.

The change in camera view happened 10 minutes before the Capitol Police unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) fired a water cannon to disrupt the pipe bomb for the second time in 20 minutes.

After pointing up for a short time, Camera 8021 panned left to show D Street, then zoomed in various directions until settling on a nondescript parking-lot view for the rest of the day.

A third U.S. Capitol Police security camera Camera 8021—located high on the Fairchild Building—is the third Capitol Police camera discovered to have been deliberately turned away from the unfolding pipe bomb drama during crucial operations of the bomb squad.

Yes. This is the real point, and most people don't get it yet.

Gemini's failure is not evidence of the failure of AI systems as such, or of the Gemini team, or of the project's radical manager. Gemini's failure is evidence of a pathological culture within Google.

Of course it was tested. It was extensively tested. Something this big being run by a trillion-dollar corporation doesn't get run in a vacuum. The data set was extensively trained by lots of people at great expense. There were internal releases and testing, including by people well outside the Gemini team. There were demos to executives. This is a huge project, an important new product, and it represents a significant capital and operational expenditure. This didn't happen due to one small independent "skunkworks" kind of operation.

That Gemini is what it is and is so consistently that demonstrates not a problem with Gemini, but a problem with Google. It is a product of Google's corporate culture. Gemini is not some aberration.

240 Why Dropping Most COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates Is Now Ethical

The Association of Bioethics Program Directors (ABPD) represents nearly 100 bioethics centers across North America. The ABPD’s members are leaders in evaluating ethical practices in the health professions and have participated in drafting institutional, statewide, and national health policies. In fall 2021, the ABPD issued a statement and a companion piece for Health Affairs Forefront describing why universal COVID-19 vaccine mandates, with exceptions only for medical contraindications, were ethically recommended at that time. In fall 2023, the ABPD membership approved a new position statement that universal COVID-19 vaccine mandates are not presently ethically supportable.

This is probably a side effect rather than a directly-engineered outcome.

If the AI system rewrites questions to ensure that answers are appropriately woke - and it does - then it will likely have the result of creating similarities between queries that were not initially there. They then get matched to each other as essentially similar in terms of theme and parameters, and then aggregated.

Monkeying with the prompts in similar ways across all queries will create an artificial similarity that the downstream routine will just ingest and refine.

Looks like Biden is now completely out of the loop, and his own negotiators aren't even bother talking to him anymore (because he's not really their boss now). Blinken just calls him every now and then and says "oh sure things are going great!" and then Biden makes up whatever he thinks people want to hear when someone asks him about it.

We are so screwed. We really need to start preparing to resist a possible trump presidency.

There are voters who say they won't vote for Biden over the Palestine. I used to have faith in my generation and younger, but it looks like they have brain rot too. Seriously, what do they think a Trump presidency will accomplish?

making extreme leftism palatable that's their goal. they want to destroy the Democratic Party by any means.

Last night someone on MSNBC said we cannot expect the institutions to hold or save us. We have to get out and vote. The question is will the Republican legislatures allow the vote to count and be the determinative factor in certification of state votes for the Electoral college. This is what frightens me.

"There Is No Use Worrying" might as well be the official motto of the Democratic Party.

(The Five Eyes countries are the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.) This bombshell, reported by a team of independent journalists, exposes a dark chapter in American political history, where foreign intelligence services were reportedly mobilized against a presidential candidate.

Roe was gone once the Notorious RBG finally died. She kept it going for years and years after support for it had evaporated. The biggest legal debate going had become "how do we continue to support Roe in spite of the fact that it is so obviously a terrible, unconstitutional ruling?" That's what those who criticize the decision never address.

Good morning Lizzy. I think we will eventually find out it wasn't so much that Obama ordered the CIA/FBI/NSA, etc, to spy on Trump as it was a mutual arrangement. The deep state IS the CIA and Obama became a full partner.

Our foreign policy for decades has been largely about regime change in one form or another and the intel community has been up to their eyeballs in it. What they were doing in Ukraine became dangerous with some like Trump in office so they tried to stop him from winning and when that didn't work ran a cold revolution on us that is still going on.

All the things we are seeing, the take over of the media, censorship, corrupt DOJ and courts, turning Trump into a corrupt monster .. it's all part of a textbook cold revolution.

He says the natives should continue to get water from a well and hike it around in baskets just like they did 2000 years ago. Society has shown that this method works, and all the other methods that people from outside of Africa try to give them always fail.

NEW: Far-left MSNBC host Rachel Maddow works herself into a panic and claims Donald Trump will remain in office for life if elected in 2024.

I’m convinced MSNBC is actually just an insane asylum.

“When [Supreme Court] inevitably rule that presidents aren't immune from prosecution after they leave office, what that will tell Donald Trump if by then he is president, is that he can never leave the office of the presidency.”

“If he is voted out in 2028, he cannot leave office and he is welcome to commit any crimes he wants to, as long as he is still president, in order to ignore the result of that election and stay in power for life, because otherwise he's gonna go to prison when he gets out.”

This is an interesting point! In working editing in the Balkans I constantly find that academics who were trained in Socialist regimes tend to 'parrot' and even outright copy-paste, as that's what they know how to do. They have difficulty even building original thought-structures, as their entire professional lives were formed by Socialist compression, and they honestly believe their parroting and 'plagiarism' IS academic work and that they should be rewarded for it.

Despite concerning PA and, specifically, a Lancaster county Amish (who, reportedly, have supported #45) farmer, it may be of broader interest.

@ScottPresler
‼️Today, Thursday, February 29th, is the peaceful rally in support of Amish Amos Miller‼️
Amos’ farm was raided by the Pennsylvania Dept. of Agriculture & thousands of dollars worth of food is being detained.
➡️His court hearing is today⬅️ & this case should concern you. If the Dept. of Agriculture is given the authority to stop Amos from providing food to his private association members, it will not stop there.
Make no mistake, the Dept, of Agriculture is waging a war on the Amish, raw milk, & farmers. This is happening across the country & won’t stop w/ PA. State governments could even have the authority to come after anyone that grows food in a garden.

🤝We need as many people as possible to join in solidarity at this rally.

When: Thursday, February 29th
Time: 11:30 a.m. (Rally)
1:30 p.m. (Court Hearing)
Where: Lancaster Courthouse
50 N. Duke Street
Lancaster, PA 17602

First Amos, then US.

America's urban cores are dying. Welcome to the party. It's going to get a lot bigger.

COVID work-from-home and relocations (authorized or not) and the decay of the urban cores into crime-ridden, dangerous, filthy shit holes have both had consequences.

It was at least a year ago that the square-foot price for good office space in suburban Seattle outpriced Class A office space in the Seattle central business district.

Businesses will pay *more* for decent space outside the downtown corridors and inside. Because those downtown corridors are awful. Crime, filth, general danger, instability and even worse government than the blue bastion suburbs that surround them. It's better for business, and makes it more likely that your employees will actually come to work.

And we haven't even gotten to interest rates, foreign capital and REIT problems that big Class A properties are facing yet...

425 And conservative Canada has known about the Red Chinese spies in Winnipeg's pandemic biolab since they were allowed to quit and leave just like you've all known about the spying on candidate Trump and President Trump since it began in 2016.

426 Huh. It's real, just not here. Per Wikipedia:

Lactalis is a French multinational dairy products corporation, owned by the Besnier family and based in Laval, Mayenne, France. The company's former name was Besnier SA.

Lactalis is the largest dairy products group in the world, and is the second largest food products group in France, behind Danone.

429 " This "raw milk" controversy escapes me. Why does the FDA make such a big deal of this? Willing buyer, willing seller, everyone knows the risks." Posted by: The Frumious Follywood

imo there is a need for an active FDA, as there are many bad products that should be regulated, kept off the shelves. BUT whether that is the case with Amish suppliers, idk.

Reuters, US senators have 'deep concerns' over JBS New York listing plans, by Leah Douglas, Fri, Jan 12, 2024

In part, "Those events, plus allegations by environmental activists that the company's cattle sourcing practices contribute to Amazon deforestation, present "deep concerns" about the potential listing, said the 15 senators, who include Democrats Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker, and Republicans Marco Rubio and Josh Hawley.

"Approval of JBS' proposed listing would subject U.S. investors to risk from a company with a history of blatant, systemic corruption, and further entrench its monopoly power and embolden its monopoly practices," they wrote in the letter first reported by Reuters."

431 I had a guy from Pennsylvania that sold cider that was not pasteurized. You could make good hard cider from it, you didn’t even have to add yeast just put it in a carboy with an air plug, boom, hard cider.

I think even that might’ve been illegal though if so, that would be stupid. But stupid was never the basis of making modern laws.

Well, now. I'm not the brightest bulb but I have to think no wonder #45's properties, businesses & $$$ is so crucial to certain governmental administrations.

Surely, our nation's hat didn't pull that out of its a** just yesterday, and without notice to the state and county.

436 Having removed "Sovereign Immunity" from federal agencies, the SCOTUS needs to remove "Sovereign Immunity" for writing unconstitutional laws, and apply that not only to the Federal Government but to state governments. That way, legislators and Governors can be sued for creating such acts. It is very hard to imagine that creating unconstitutional acts is a proper function of any government in this country. The Constitution is written in plain and simple English, there is no excuse for writing unconstitutional "laws". Making legislators and Governors personally liable financially to the citizens for violating their rights will bring their tyranny to its knees. Give them "The process is the punishment".

437 MSNSDAP's Maddow: ‘Craven’ Supreme Court Trying to Help Trump

The SCOTUS decision to hear was inevitable.
The Appellate opinion is .. to be nice .. incomplete.

The appeals court did a complete shit show of an opinion.
Instead of adding value to the various sides of this argument, they left so much unanswered that it will take until the end of the SCOTUS session in June to write a complete opinion.

438 Andrew Weissmann: The Supreme Court has given Trump the win

The Supreme Court on Wednesday laid out a hearing schedule on former President Donald Trump's claims of presidential immunity that raises significant doubts that the election interference case against him will go to trial before the 2024 election. Former Justice Department prosecutor Andrew Weissmann discusses.

... Weissmann seems to miss the irony of an election interference case

441 A rudimentary physics education should clue anybody in that nobody is firing 800 rounds per second of 5.56x45mm from the shoulder. Just rough estimates, that's what, 800 3.5g projectiles at something like 900 m/s every second? That's about 2,500N of thrust, or something like 550lbs.

You don't need a degree from Harvard for that, just high school physics and a pocket calculator.
