Sunday Morning Book Thread 05-31-2020

Stockholm Public Library 03 smaller.jpg
Public Library, Stockholm, Sweden


Good morning to all you 'rons, 'ettes, lurkers, and lurkettes, wine moms, frat bros, crétins sans pantalon (who are technically breaking the rules), rioters, looters, outside agitators, and the rest of you standing on the corner minding your own business. Welcome once again to the stately, prestigious, internationally acclaimed and high-class Sunday Morning Book Thread, a weekly compendium of reviews, observations, snark, witty repartee, hilarious bon mots, and a continuing conversation on books, reading, spending way too much money on books, writing books, and publishing books by escaped oafs and oafettes who follow words with their fingers and whose lips move as they read. Unlike other AoSHQ comment threads, the Sunday Morning Book Thread is so hoity-toity, pants are required. Even if it's these pants, which, I need to warn you, are especially bad today, and cannot be unseen. So if you have a weak heart, liver or an otherwise sub-optimal constitution, you'd best just keep on walking and enjoy the rest of the book thread.



Pic Note:

Very impressive for a public library:

Stockholm Public Library includes more than 2 million volumes and 2.4 million audio tapes, CDs and audio books.

The "international library" is the section for foreign languages, housed in two floors of an annex behind the main building... Its holdings comprise more than 100 languages with 17,000 volumes in Persian, 15,800 in Arabic, and 14,500 in Spanish. In 2007 the most borrowed languages were Russian (19,300 loans), Thai, Spanish, Arabic, Persian, Chinese, Polish and Japanese. For some of these languages, Stockholm serves public libraries in the rest of Sweden through interlibrary loans.

Here's the story I always like to tell about Sweden:

A few years ago I saw the Swedish movie Let The Right One In, which plot concerned a bullied school kid finding himself protected by a vampire. He is the son of a single mom and there are several scenes shot inside the apartment they live in, and I was surprised how depressing and shabby it looked. I know she's a single mom and probably doesn't make much money, but even still, we're talking Soviet Union/East Bloc levels of shabbiness. Then there was a scene shot at a municipal swimming pool in the town where they lived and the facility looked absolutely magnificent. No expense was spared in the construction materials. It looked like a swimming pool you'd find in Emperor Nero's palace.

Seeing this library reminds me of that.

What Makes America Exceptional?

This is the question asked (and answered) by America's Revolutionary Mind: A Moral History of the American Revolution and the Declaration That Defined It

When I was a young boy living in Ontario, Canada, I read a children's book that changed my life. It was The How and Why Wonder Book of the American Revolution by Felix Sutton, and when I read it, I knew I was an American born in the wrong country. That was the moment, some fifty years ago now, when I fell in love with the story of the American Revolution and the principles of the Declaration of Independence.

Ha! I remember those 'How and Why Wonder Books' and you can still get used copies of the American Revolution one, but it's rather spendy. Abebooks is considerably cheaper. I'd kind of like to read it for myself, actually, to see how it inspired a Canadian boy to become an American.

But he especially likes the Declaration of Independence. From the introduction:

The purpose of this book is twofold: first, to elucidate the logic, principles, and significance of the Declaration of Independence as the embodiment of the American mind; and, second, to shed light on what John Adams once called the "real American Revolution"; that is, the moral revolution that occurred in the minds of the people in the fifteen years before 1776. The Declaration is used here as an ideological road map by which to chart the intellectual and moral terrain traveled by American Revolutionaries as they searched for new moral principles to deal with the changed political circumstances of the 1760s and early 1770s...

The book reconstructs what amounts to a near-unified system of thought—what Thomas Jefferson called an “American mind” or what I call “America’s Revolutionary mind.” This American mind was, I argue, united in its fealty to a common philosophy that was expressed in the Declaration and launched with the words, “We hold these truths to be self-evident.”

Of course the classic book on this subject is The Ideological Origins of the American Revolution, published in 1967.

National Review (yeah, I know) has a pretty good review by a writer I am not familiar with, who points out that this book is

...not organized in chronological order but in a philosophical order that explains the “self-evident truths” of the Declaration of Independence point by point and demonstrates just how thorough was the colonists’ consensus on those principles. Rather than stopping with familiar quotations from celebrated revolutionaries, Thompson, a political-science professor at Clemson University, musters evidence from scores of writings by lesser-known figures, many never published before, and deftly assembles it all into a logical sequence that begins with fundamentals (one section is entitled “The Meaning of Truth” and works its way up to such concepts as entrepreneurialism and “the ideal of the self-made man.”



Who Dis:

Last week's 'who dis' was actress Eileen Brennan.



Books By Morons

I received e-mail this week from 3 (count 'em) 3 new moron authors:

Long-time lurker Alma Boykin has written many urban fantasy novels and has just released the 12th in her Familiar Tales series. But let me introduce you to the very first one so you can get an idea of what's going on in this universe, Familiar Tales, which is a collection of 5 short stories in a universe in which

...Familiars choose magic workers, and a few others, as their partners. A world of adventure, tax-deductions, bad publisher tricks, and odd veterinary clinics, where wolverines wear glasses and iguanas sing along with the radio—badly—while casting spells and keeping their chosen humans out of mischief.

Or try to.

This intro collection is priced at 99 cents.

So her latest is the novel Horribly Familiar: Familiar Tales Book Twelve, and love is in the air:

Love, romance, curses, and . . . chaperones?

Nothing aside from magic comes easily for two shadow mages. André Lestrang relocates to Riverton just in time for the summer humidity and storm season. He and his fiancée Lelia Chan struggle to balance work, magic, their relationship, and his Army career. When someone sends a magical package bomb to one of their friends, a chain reaction of trouble ensues.

Add in two Familiars determined to ensure that their mages don't get "in trouble" before the wedding, the usual mischief a ring-tailed lemur, kit fox, wolverine, and others can devise, and a dash of new responsibilities to the magical community. Lelia and André discover that the summer starts to feel

. . . Horribly Familiar.

The Kindle edition is $3.99.

___________

Another long-time lurkette has just published her latest science-fiction thriller Going Ballistic:

When her plane tries to come apart at apogee during a hijack, ballistic airline pilot Michelle Lauden handles the worst day she could imagine. After getting down without losing any passengers or crew, though, she finds her troubles have just begun!

The country she's landed in has just declared independence from the Federation. The Feds intended her passengers to be the first casualties in the impending war - and they're not happy she's survived to contradict their official narrative in the news.

The local government wants to find her to give her a medal. The Feds are hunting her to give her an unmarked grave. As they both close in, Michelle's running out of options and time. The only people able to protect her are an accident investigation team on loan from the Federation's enemies... the same enemies who sent her hijackers in the first place.

And they have their own plans for her, and the country she's in!

Only $4.99 on Kindle. Dorothy is also the author of Shattered Under Midnight and Scaling the Rim.

Another lurker recommends

...the 2020 Summer Special of Cirsova Magazine. It includes my story "The Fourth Gift": "Baltasar, one of Ulrik's many Menders, diligently performs his task of recreating the Solar System -- until a mysterious anomaly forming around the Moon threatens the outcome of the Plan!"

Cirsova is in the spirit of the old pulps, as you can tell by its tagline: Magazine of Thrilling Adventure and Daring Suspense.

Pulpy? Boy, I'll say! Just look at the cover:

Moron Recommendations

Amazon informed me that the Kindle edition of Theodore Dalrymple's collection of essays, Life At The Bottom, is selling for $3.99:

The doctor and consultant psychiatrist Theodore Dalrymple looks at Great Britain - the nation which produced Newton and Darwin, Shakespeare and Dickens, David Hume and Adam Smith - and marvels at what it has become.

Its inner cities and council estates are places where 'the whole gamut of human folly, wickedness, and misery may be perused at leisure... abortions procured by abdominal kung fu; children who have children; women abandoned by the father of their child a month before or a month after delivery; insensate jealousy; serial stepfatherhood that leads to sexual and physical abuse of children on a mass scale.'

Other Dalrymple books are selling for cheap, too, such as Our Culture, What's Left of It and The Wilder Shores of Marx: Journeys in a Vanishing World, which is a travelog, published in 1991, of his visits to North Korea, Albania, Romania, Vietnam, and Cuba.

Dalrymple's political observations are insightful and his essays on the British lower class are hearthbreaking to read, even depressing. He is the the modern-day version of Cassandra, a Greek prophetess cursed by the gods to be 100% correct in her predictions, but never believed by nobody. I think the Illiad has her jumping up and down screaming her head off as the celebratory Trojan army was dragging the wooden horse into the city.

___________

Moron 'DIY Daddio' said that The Blood of Others by Rick Mofina is a pretty good murder mystery:

The disappearance and murder of a lonely San Francisco insurance clerk puts a relentless crime reporter and legendary homicide cop on separate tracks in their pursuit of a killer.

The suspect lures solitary women out of their quiet worlds and into his nightmare as he races the clock and travels the globe searching for the one woman who will forgive the unforgivable.

In the course of a widening investigation, Olivia Grant, a shy gift store sales manager who aches to escape her painful solitude, meets Ben Wyatt, an outcast San Francisco cop on the case, Wyatt is a man gripped with self-doubt over the shooting of his former partner.

Blood of Others is a study of loneliness and human frailties; a story steeped in terrifying suspense that threatens to destroy the lives of those drawn into it as it rockets to a heart-pounding conclusion.

The Kindle edition is $4.99

___________

So that's all for this week. As always, book thread tips, suggestions, bribes, insults, threats, ugly pants pics and moron library submissions may be sent to OregonMuse, Proprietor, AoSHQ Book Thread, at the book thread e-mail address: aoshqbookthread, followed by the 'at' sign, and then 'G' mail, and then dot cee oh emm.

What have you all been reading this week? Hopefully something good, because, as you all know, life is too short to be reading lousy books.

10 If you are interested in the Franco-Prussian War, then the Michael Howard book is a good read. I read a lot of military history and the guys who wrote before the 80's were simply top notch in writing smooth flowing books. Too many of today's books have authors pasting quotes left and right, and can't seem to write in a logical progression. Anyways, a couple of interesting tidbits. I didn't realize the first battle losses ended up with the monarchy collapsing and the king fleeing. A new republic then popped up, only to be beaten again and again over the next few months. The Germans were somewhat surprised by their success. They also were looking for some payback for centuries of French armies marching through the German states. Phil Sheridan was the American observer with the Prussian army. Also, this was the last significant European conflict before WWI and everyone forgot its lessons. If you can find it and are interested, I highly recommend it.

18 > I was surprised how depressing and shabby it looked.

I believe that Sweden has approximately the same per capita GDP as Alabama.

That's right: the socialist showpiece state has roughly managed to match one of the poorest states in the Union.

Current reading: The Throne of Caesar, supposedly the last entry in the Roma Sub Rosa series by Steven Saylor.

In this one, Caesar gets assassinated (sorry for the spoiler there), and Saylor's detective character, Gordianus, is apparently assigned/takes on the task of unraveling the true nature of the conspiracy (at least that's where I think it's going... haven't finished it yet).

38 On Friday I went up to a used book store in NH to trade in some old Edward Rowe Snow books I'll never read. In turn, I picked up Screen Acting - Its Requirements and Rewards from 1922, which is a guidebook for aspirants to the movies, with chapters about a day at the studio, what to expect if you're an extra, how to make up, what a rehearsal is like and so on. A great reference source for me.

Which brings me to my own writing news, which I mentioned a few days ago, but here it is for the book thread - I finally finished a first draft of my new Theda Bara book (after more than 10 years!). It's still in sprawling, shapeless form and needs a ton of editing, pasting and expanding, but I finally have a complete end-to-end piece that I can work on.

Hoping to have a beta draft ready for reader suggestions in a few months.

40 Okay, so even though I'm All-Spain, All The Time, last week I got an idea about my next novel.

I was reading the news and thinking to myself: Some of the lockdown restrictions in Michigan make no sense. I didn't dwell on it in an angry way, but began to think through it as a story line.

As in: Who would want Michiganders locked in their homes, forbidden to even be close to one another, isolated and afraid - essentially helpless?

The Vampire of Michigan, that's who.

I want to finish Spain first, but it seems to me that the action in my other novel was just the opening volley of a massive war within the Vampire power structure. Someone has decided to break all the rules and try to rule human society through a proxy, risking exposing them all.

Anyhow, something to think about.

Oh, and some bastard decided to give Vampires a two-star rating. Not verified purchase, no review, just a turd in my punch bowl. What an ass.

49 It's a small thing, perhaps, but I recently got some extra heavy index cards. They are unlined and acid free. Besides the many uses for sketching and light watercolor washes, I use them as bookmarks for my better volumes. A number of my art books and nicely bound editions are printed on acid free paper. These cards keep the pages from getting stains or otherwise deteriorating.

They can be found on Amazon under SUPER THICK index cards. I get the 17 pt thickness.

Pericles was the ultimate hardass regarding people wanting to stop fighting though, claiming that everyone had been behind him at the start were gutless cowards because of personal setbacks. So the fighting kept going on.

As an aside, it was mentioned that both sides would periodically appeal to the king of Persia for financial help; at least so far he stayed out of it but thought the Greeks could make his kingdom precarious if they weren't always fighting among themselves.

57 It's a small thing, perhaps, but I recently got some extra heavy index cards. They are unlined and acid free. Besides the many uses for sketching and light watercolor washes, I use them as bookmarks for my better volumes. A number of my art books and nicely bound editions are printed on acid free paper. These cards keep the pages from getting stains or otherwise deteriorating.

They can be found on Amazon under SUPER THICK index cards. I get the 17 pt thickness.

The Greeks were all about the infighting. A lot of the admonitions of the Founding Fathers were based on the constant recourse the Greeks had to enlisting outsiders to settle domestic disputes.

Lots of tyrants got power by having someone open the postern gate and let mercs into the town.

Based on it having been cited here last week, I bought and read the Kindle version of An Inconvenient Presidency: The Time-Traveling Misadventures of President Al Gore by Eric M. Hamilton. I read it in one sitting. Groundhog Day brought to DC politics is how I'd describe it: Al Gore lost in 2000 for "good" reason. The story had grown tedious well before it ended, which is a serious flaw.

69 Hi Readers. Thanks OM.

Read Joe Foss' book about air combat on Guadalcanal. Quick and easy read, pretty good. Thanks to teh Horde for the recommendation, as always.

Still plowing through the collected works of Sprague, mostly about Conan.

I liked We Were Soldiers, but I think, by comparison, Hackworth's 'Steel My Soldiers' Hearts' is superior, FWIW.

Watching Dragon and ISS do the dance of geek sex. Watching the never-ending YT series on Great War, all 800 or so episodes.

Back to work this week. Radiation starts this week too. Enjoy all.

70 +1 for the Wilder Shores of Marx. Just finishing it today.

I read Damn the Pressure Full Speed Ahead, which was I think recommended here last week. A bit more of a memoir than I was expecting, but it was interesting reading of the life of a boy from Indiana who built rockets in his basement and went on (through a number of twists) be pioneer robotic submarines for oil exploration.

Also read The Brick Moon, a short story which was written in the mid-1800s and has the first depiction of a orbital colony, has flywheel energy storage and launcher, ablative coatings, and what looks like a non-novel depiction of crowd-funding. I guess that's been around a lot longer than I knew.

72 Current reading: The Throne of Caesar, supposedly the last entry in the Roma Sub Rosa series by Steven Saylor. 

In this one, Caesar gets assassinated (sorry for the spoiler there), and Saylor's detective character, Gordianus, is apparently assigned/takes on the task of unraveling the true nature of the conspiracy (at least that's where I think it's going... haven't finished it yet).

98 Business trip this week, so I listened to Larry Correia's excellent Grimnoir Chronicles in the car - an urban fantasy adventure set in an alternate noir 1930s.

Only a handful of people in the world know that mankind's magic comes from a living creature, and it is a refugee from another universe. The Power showed up here in the 1850s because it was running from something. Now it is 1933, and the Power's hiding place has been discovered by a killer.

It is a predator that eats magic and leaves destroyed worlds in its wake. Earth is next.

Also, rioters burned the iconic Uncle Hugo's bookstore in Minneapolis. There's a gofundme - more at Larry Correia's MonsterHunterNation.com blog.

110 Morning Horde. As I promised (or threatened) last night, here goes:

Gordon I

On this day, in 1916, off the Danish coast, the British Grand Fleet met the German High Seas Fleet in the largest battleship action since the age of sail. Jutland is, almost without rival, the most controversial naval battle in history, perhaps the most of all battles, period.

I believe that I have more books that cover Jutland than any other topic in my library; certainly the pile would be a lot taller than I. (Trafalgar isn't too far behind.) And I picked up Andrew Gordon's 1996 The Rules of the Game. Again with the superlatives, it is, if not the best, certainly the most fascinating, if often irritating, on the subject, I'm a bit hesitant to try to discuss it, as it is so very wide-ranging. It even had a small vogue in the business world, for it's analysis of how technology and it's producers can get int he way of the organizations actually doing what they are supposed to do. He concludes with 26 conclusions, many of which are "blinding glimpses of the obvious" which I have seen posted alone. Most of them are hard to dispute.

What triggered it this year was finally getting Scheer's book on the HSF. It's not so good as I'd hoped, and is the least accurate. I don't blame him for the latter as it was published in Sept 1919. Think about that. The Armistice was only 10 months earlier. So he has an excuse (unlike Keegan in Price of Admiralty, for instance.) Just one example: Scheer is vehement that they had sunk HMS Warspite. I think the German destroyermen at Narvik in 1940 might have had something to say about that, or the crew of the Cavour at Calabria, later that year. Or at Salerno. Or Walcherin.

One reason for the rush was the need to justify the German HSF in the war. In comparison with the army, it did little. Add in the mutiny in 1918, the surrender at Scapa, and the scuttling, and he had a lot of 'splaining to do. (Tirpitz too rushed out his memoirs.)

There is some CYA, as we would expect. Jellicoe does the same; so does Churchill. I always expect that, and try to adjust for it. (I am always puzzled by those - mostly on the left, but sometimes on our side - who confront this and decide that all history is fiction. What in the world are they thinking of? Can they not read between the lines, or balance two or more accounts? I recommend to such people that they give up history, entirely, and stick to romance stories. Those will be straighforward enough for such literal and blinkered minds.)

But less forgiveable is the lack of real explanation for two things:

1. He never addresses why he smelt nothing fishy in the Run to the North. This was the phase where he was chasing Beatty until he ran into Jellicoe with the main body. He deflects by continually saying the BCF was heading "northwest". It wasn't. Except for brief maneuvering, Beatty was heading north, or a bit east. It never seems to have occurred to Scheer that this might be odd. NW would indeed be heading back to Britain. N meant toward Norway. That Scheer was surprised to meet the Grand Fleet has always seemed to me inexcusable.

2. After the first meeting of the main fleets, Scheer extricated his fleet very skillfully. He deserves, and has always gotten plenty of, credit for that. But then he reversed course, right back into the jaws of death. His explanations are bizarre and incredible. He says, eg, that doing so would somehow prevent Jellicoe from intercepting him in the morning. He never explains how this is so. Not even that he could run around behind the GF, as happened later in the night. And that last point contradicts the other reasons he gives.

(A side note: I am still pissed off at both the RN and the USN, post WWII. To me it's a crime that HMS Warspite, and USS Enterprise, were discarded and scrapped. Those two are without question the ships that served with most distinction in the war. That they are not memorials is just indefensible. The best I can come up with is that they were discarded in that sunny era of liberal progressivism when the UN was still believed in, and they were seen as remnants of a shameful past. Not good enough.)

113 Gordon II

But to our purpose:

After Scheer, the next important books were Jellicoe's Grand Fleet, Churchill's World Crisis (one chapter only, but very influential), and most of all, the Harper Record. (I might add Bacon's the Jutland Scandal). The bias of the first is obvious. Churchill is vehemently pro-Beatty, Bacon equally vehement on the other side. The story of the Harper record, and his later The Truth About Jutland puts Beatty in a bad light. He was devious & went beyond the limit in casting himself the best possible light. This has not aged well. In general, most historians have sided with Harper, and thus with Jellicoe. Other than H H Frost, virtually any book on Jutland between the 20s and the 60s shows Harper's influence, even if Beattite.

And it matters because the Jellicoe-Beatty feud was the 3rd such feud to split the RN in rival camps, in recent history. And that is central to Gordon's book. The first is that about the collision between HMS Victoria and HMS Camperdown in 1893. This got conflated with the commander, Sir George Tryon's, ideas about signaling in action. Gordon tries to sort this out, and for the most part, is pretty good here. It is, almost literally, the center of his book. But he cannot avoid slipping into hagiography about Tryon. (Hough's Admirals in Collision is worse.) At least he concludes that Tryon was the man responsible, though to strongly enough for me. The 2nd is the Fisher-Beresford feud, in to which he goes in less detail.

And here I have to harp a bit. I justify it that the whole incident, and the 2 issues involved, are the single biggest focus of Rules of the Game. The problem is that (a) Tryon was undoubtedly right about his effort to reduce the reliance on signals in battle - there is one citation of a maneuver in which he used 10 flags, where the Signal Book would have required 202! But he misses vital point. Tryon was ALSO a master of the signal book, and delighted in putting the fleet through complex maneuvers, which no one understood, but which always worked out.

"Tryon often gave us maneuvers that looked dangerous, and so they should have been unless faithfully carried out. I have myself ... thought when I started there must be an accident, but found myself exactly astern of the division following me..." (Quoted in Gordon.)

Now, given that part of Gordon's case is that the Victorian navy emphasised strict obedience, and suppressed independent thought, it's suprising he doesn't see that what Tryon was doing - contrary to his expressed intent - was hammering this attitude in. Tryon also NEVER discussed these maneuvers beforehand. In effect, he was the anti-Nelson. And like Fisher and Beatty, his good ideas were undercut by his personality flaws.

114 Gordon III

The next really important source is Marder's From Dreadnought to Scapa Flow, in the 60s. What I said of Harper above applies here. Virtually all books since draw heavily on Marder, one example being Massie's Dreadnought and Castles of Steel. Starting in the 90s there has been a vogue of trying to deflate Marder's rep. It hasn't come to much; the best efforts (e.g., Jon Sumida) when read closely come down to a difference of emphasis rather than overturning Marder.

Sumida's more important work has been on the Pollen/Dreyer fire control debate in which, once again, was an RN split in which the respective sides in those listed above tended to line up as they had in the others. Here, the central point is that the Dreyer system was unable to handle rapid course changes. (Again, controversial. There is an author, John Brooks, who disputes this. Unfortunately, their exchange is behind a pay wall too rich for my bank account.)

And that last is another point about Gordon. Really, two points. A running theme is the tendency of those who supply technology to end up putting "process" over "product"; to center attention on the use of technology over the ends it is supposed to promote. Really, at a basic level, this is the point of his book. Another way he describes it is as a conflict between "rationalists" and "empiricists", the latter being those who focus on the actual winning of battles, based on experience, and the former those who focus on the means - usually technological - to do so. In Gordon's model - he's big on dichotomies - the latter, once again, end up putting the cart before the horse. And they persistently tend to dismiss lessons of history on the grounds that "it's different now". (Note: one dissonance is that one of Gordon's good guys is Fisher, who was the worst of all in dismissing history, "the record of exploded ideas.")

The other point is the extent that the two sides tended to be the same people opposing and supporting one another. Here he delves deep into social history, which is interesting, but to my mind not wholly convincing. He puts much emphasis on Girouard's Return to Camelot, which he sees as diverting officers from the "rat catching" approach to war, emphasizing victory, to a chivalric ideal in which heroic death and forlorn hopes were the ideal. (He has a digression on Scott's Antarctic expedition here.) Well, maybe. But surely the name of Nelson might come to mind. And Nelson has a foot in both camps. No one was more single minded in defeating the enemy; no one was more obsessed with glory and arguably sought death in battle.

115 Gordon IV

And that brings me to yet another of his dichotomies. He draws heavily on Norman Dixon's On the Psychology of Military Incompetence, with its dichotomy between "autocrats" and "authoritarians". The latter are highly individualistic, the latter organization men. One point about the autocrats is that their attention to dress can be either casual (think Grant) or highly formal, but often with an individual touch (Patton). Gordon gives many examples, leading to the inconspicuous nature of Jellicoe's orthodox uniforms, vs Beatty's personalizing his (6 buttons rather than the standard 8.)

One problem I have with this is that it just isn't clear that there's real correlation here. Custer and Montgomery were thoroughgoing autocrats on this system, while Lee and Wellington would seem to fit the authoritarian model. Which would you choose? To my mind, we have gotten into the lumping/splitting division, between those who tie together distinct phenomena into neat packages, and those who insist that doing so treats unlike things as like, glossing over real distinction. OK, I'll fess up, I am an extreme splitter, with C S Lewis and J H Hexter. Yes, we are a minority, but surely one's alarm bells should start ringing when we see such almost Manichaean contrasts, one of which is all good, the other all bad? (Gordon, to his credit, DOES portray Beatty's character flaws. The account of his treatment of Seymour, his signals officer, is particularly damning.)

But wait, there's more! Yet another feature is Gordon's analysis of other historians, especially N J M Campbell's Jutland, an Analysis of the Fighting. Campbell literally tries to account for every hit he can, and its effect. But Gordon does a very good job in his appendices I - IV in analysing the analysis. The bottom line: taking literally the logs of the battle leads to absurdity. The best example of the problem is shown by HMS New Zealand, where two records were kept, on on the flag bridge, one in the conning tower. "At 5 o'clock, we find Princess Royal 10 1/2 miles from New Zealand's navigator, who is now estranged from the people upstairs by 4 3/4 miles." There is a lot like that. It matters most about the targetting by the HSF during the turn to the north. Campbell's book is very good, but Gordon is an important corrective. (Post-Gordon, the most interesting work I've seen has been by Bill Jurens, but he hasn't written a book. There's a good documentary on youtube in which he plays a major part. Since it's me, no one will be surprised that I'll add Norman Friedman's Fighting the Great War at Sea and British Battleships, pt 2. Friedman comes across as unimpressed by Gordon. But that's fine by me. I want diversity in the actual meaning of that much-abused word.)

I've gone on far too long. I do want to emphasize that this is by far the most subtle and sophisticated of all Beattyite books, which is helped by his not trying to cover the man's flaws and errors. It also includes a very readable account of the battle itself, which I have not emphasized. The passage he quotes on the last moments of HMS Black Prince is truly memorable. He hits on the battles importance in the medical treatment of burn victims.

To anyone who has any interest, I cannot recommend it highly enough, with the warning that one should not take it as gospel. Even for those not interested in the battle, the social history in the chapters beginning with "The Long Calm Lee of Trafalgar" should be interesting.

And I have left much out.

127 I finished "Recreating the American Longhunter" by Joseph Ruckman. At 68 pages it is more of a thick pamphlet but it contains a huge amount of information. The stress is on developing a persona from the best documents available and not letting 21st century mores corrupt the interpretation. The footnotes are worth the cost of the book. It's an excellent starting point for people interested in the period generally or who want to begin in living history.

Possibly the best book based on a movie script we're Elliott S. Maggin's Superman books, Last Son of Krypton and Miracle Monday.

Partly because either there was no script at that point or he wasn't allowed to see it, for the first one, and the formula worked so well they did it for the second as well.

The third book was a fairly bad reproduction of the really bad third movie script.

145 Jesus, some of you guys squat to pee.
The Command Sergeant Major in We Were Soldiers was Basil Plumley.
He was real, actually did everything depicted and quite a bit more, and lived to legendary status and a ripe old age. And you're going on about some actor.

My late uncle was at Ia Drang, and wrote up an account for his local home paper. It didn't have quite the same spin as the reporter's tale in We Were Soldiers, but that didn't come out until later. I was in seventh or eighth grade, and had to do a broadcast journalism project in English, so I used that story as the base, figuring that I had real first-person news to work with here.
Well, the teacher was interested. The other students, in a (remember hard, now) conservative-Democrat town, could not have cared less. They had not heard there was a war on. These were some of the same people who would later run my car off the road because I wasn't "patriotic" enough.

And so far as paying extra goes, since when does Nero stint on indulging his wishes?

Sure, sometimes he leaves willingly, if orchids or food are involved. Sometimes grudgingly, if the law forces him to. A few times out of dire necessity. But a haircut? I just don't believe it.

174 That Swedish vampire movie sounds very intriguing!

Mornin', all. Back from the grocery; got some writing done; even managed to shave.

Picked up a free book last night. In old historic Gretna, right outside the little post office, someone has put up one of those Book Nooks -- a little birdhouse-sized container on a post. You can take a book and leave one or more. I found Bernard Cornwell's The Fort: A Novel of the Revolutionary War (2010). Looked intriguing, and I'd tried one or two of his Sharpe series. Plus, you know, free.

Benedict Cumberbatch, as no doubt earlier posters have said, is the mystery guest today. That pic looks like it was taken when he was 17 or 18!

This Cirsova magazine: Does it pay actual money? What kind of stories does it take? I have a grand idea for a plausible reworking of the Green Hornet.

179 Kindle Direct Publishing How To Promote Your Book:

"You can also... post on message boards, join user communities...
...and if that fails you can identify as a "long-time lurker" who "loves your site" and without having to ever actually engage in the on-line community ask the site administrator to plug your book that "will totally resonate with your readers".

This avoids the time-consuming nuisance of actually engaging with potential buyers of your book and exchanging ideas and finding common ground. This technique works best if you claim to have lurked for a vague number of years, such as "several", "the last few" or "many". Also phrases such as "like-minded", "enjoyed reading the many spirited discussions though I never joined in", "your readers may not know me but I've always enjoyed reading your blog/site/page" and"your zany but lovable commenters". Sales are sure to skyrocket.

(Okay, I'll admit, I added the bit after the first ten words, but you get the gist...)

184 69 Hi Readers. Thanks OM.
Read Joe Foss' book about air combat on Guadalcanal
Posted by: goatexchange

I just finished Guadalcanal-The Island of Fire, by R. L. Ferguson. About the armys 347th fighter group participation during the early campaign. Mostly flying P-39 Airacobra variants. I'd read plenty about the Airacobra not being an effective fighter. This book was the first that made it extremely clear why. The Japanese raids were about 9,000 ft higher than the P-39 ceiling. Even if ready there was nothing they could do.

The Marines made effective use of their F4F Wildcats early on. Otherwise Japanese bombing would have permanently wiped out the Henderson airfield.

I definitely enjoyed the book, very nice overview of the early period from a participant. The Airacobras that were not destroyed did a fantastic job of ground support.

185 One false note Stout hits. I haven't read it recently, and don't recall the title, but I was always bothered by the one set in a barber shop. I just cannot believe that Nero goes out, every other week, IIRC, to get his hair cut. It's New Effing York. I cannot believe he can't find someone who will come to the brownstone to do it. And so far as paying extra goes, since when does Nero stint on indulging his wishes?

Sure, sometimes he leaves willingly, if orchids or food are involved. Sometimes grudgingly, if the law forces him to. A few times out of dire necessity. But a haircut? I just don't believe it.

I'm quite proud to say that I finally finished the most famous book of all last month.

Yes, that book. I set out to read the Bible cover to cover in one year, as my goal.

Did it in about 8 months, reading, usually in the AM having coffee.

It was a peeve of mine that I'd read this chapter or that chapter but never the whole book.

But now that's no longer the case!

189 I'm continuing, at a pleasantly slow pace, the letters of EB White and Edmund Ware Smith. Some humor, some insight to the time (1940s and 50s), and wonderful use of language. The same applies to Smith's stories in "A Tomato Can Chronicle and Other Stories of Fishing and Shooting". Like some of my favorite outdoor writing, Smith can put you into the time and place completely, so it is absorbing and relaxing at the same time.

Yes, Waugh was never "pro-Franco," he just despised the Communists more.

It's also funny how he prefigured today's "fake news" by having the 'famed' American correspondent in Scoop cause a coup in the Balkans because he got off at the wrong train stop.

And when he arrives "in country," he writes his reports without every leaving his hotel room or talking to anyone - and it becomes the authentic account.

211 Made some progress in Simon Schama's Landscape and Memory. Finished a section that started about the first person in the US to see a sequoia, tracking a wounded grizzly from an eastern sierra mountain mining camp and thinking WTF at the giant tree. The narrative meandered all over the place about weird offshoots of Christianity associating wilderness with paradise that upset the traditionalists by getting too close to paganism. From then it went into gothic architecture which bored me immensely. No offense to any Horde architects but anybody writing about it puts me to sleep including Tom Wolfe.

Once that was mercifully concluded, a section on water started with the tale of Joel Barlow being holed up in a Marseilles pesthouse (another pandemic) while working for Thomas Jefferson to buy off the dey of Algiers for merchant marines he captured for ransom. The young nation was stretched far too thin to do anything that threatened that islamic fuck except agree to his term. Anyway Barlow was somewhat of an Orientalism scholar and used that assignment to research myths of Egypt including when Osiris was tricked and murdered, his body was hacked into pieces, all of which were recovered by his sister except the family jewels, which were tossed in the Nile and are the basis for it being the source of fertility. I don't know where further excursions of this section are going but it's a lot more interesting than architecture. Eat shit, Costanza.

Yes! I remember those. The second one in particular. It opens with Pa Kent having a waking nightmare, imagining that Clark with his superpowers might well turn into the world's worst dictator, partly because he, Clark, is not aware of life outside of himself. (You know, like most kids.) "The boy's not ready," Pa Kent thinks.

Then Clark sees a dog run over, and is able with his Kryptonian vision to see how its life actually fades. He goes into a kind of shock. At last he comes out of it, and has clearly grown up.

Pa murmurs to Ma, "I think the boy's ready. . . ."

There's a story from one of my Bennett Cerf joke books that I don't have time to look up that concerns two women on a train. They knew each other, but the first simply could not remember the second's name, no matter how hard she tried.

At last, when the second woman mentioned her brother, the first, still trying to remember where they met, said, "Oh, yes, your brother. What is he doing these days?"

The second woman gave the first an ice-cold look.

"He's still the President."

254 So on Amazon, there is a free digital edition of a Barb Wire comic omnibus. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but it wasn't a Marvel Netflix series with a heroine that wears a bright blue and purple outfit, who tries to keep her bar open while Z-list super-villains burn the city down around her.

It wasn't quite timely when I read it, but the early part of the book has a group of villains go on a rampage, specifically targeting and burning down police stations. But that storyline was dropped, presumably to be handled in another comic book of the time. As I mentioned, Barb Wire herself isn't the most pro-active of 'heroes'...

Heh. Funny story. I used to do mechanical drawing, which became CAD later for a living. But when it was all pencils and erasers, I had to make blueprints.

The ammonia used in the process is 100% industrial grade, which takes the normally yellow paper and transfers the image to it, turning it blue in the process.

Once, because I was not paying attention, I put the new bottle of ammonia on the wrong feeder tube and basically got that crap everywhere.

The machine was right by an AC inlet and sucked ammonia up into the HVaC system.

Long story short, I ran an entire plant full of people out of a building because I'm an idiot.

Thankfully, no one was hurt

And Trump is now being labeled the real murderer of George Floyd.

SECTION 16-11-110. Arson.



(A) A person who wilfully and maliciously causes an explosion, sets
fire to, burns, or causes to be burned or aids, counsels, or procures a
burning that results in damage to a building, structure, or any property
specified in subsections (B) and (C), whether the property of the
person or another, which results, either directly or indirectly, in
death or serious bodily injury to a person is guilty of the felony of
arson in the first degree and, upon conviction, must be imprisoned not
less than thirty years.


(B) A person who wilfully and maliciously causes an explosion, sets
fire to, burns, or causes to be burned or aids, counsels, or procures a
burning that results in damage to a dwelling house, church or place of
worship, public or private school facility, manufacturing plant or
warehouse, building where business is conducted, institutional facility,
or any structure designed for human occupancy including local and
municipal buildings, whether the property of the person or another, is
guilty of the felony of arson in the second degree and, upon conviction,
must be imprisoned not less than three nor more than twenty-five years.

114 I've seen this mentioned in fringe stuff in the last few years, and a moron mentioned it in detail in last night's ONT.

The Mini-Manual of the Urban Guerrilla.

Always good to understand what the enemy is reading, like Cloward-Piven. Learn, adapt, and overcome.


Originally written in 1969 by Carlos Marighella, one of the leaders of the Brazilian guerrilla organization National liberation Action (ALN), the Mini-Manual Of The Urban Guerrilla is probably one of the most famous documents to come out of the guerrilla struggles in Latin America. Widely reprinted and translated into numerous languages, it became a guide for many guerrilla movements around the globe.
With the massive technological changes that have reshaped the world, many parts of the Mini-Manual have become dated and in some cases completely irrelevant. Nonetheless it does serve as a framework for
urban guerrilla strategies and tactics when adapted to the current world situation.

The figures, obtained from police under the Official Information Act, show the rates of gun crime went up in both 2018 and 2019.

Last year, there were 3540 occasions where an offender was found with a gun.

And in both of the last two years, the rate of deadly incidents involving a firearm was the highest it had been since 2009.

226
The first part of the Trump speech from yesterday at Cape Canaveral that no press covered, and to most people never happened. One of his best, ever IMO.



"I want to say a few words about the situation in Minnesota. The death of George Floyd on the streets of Minneapolis was a grave tragedy. It should never have happened. It has filled Americans all over the country with horror, anger, and grief.

Yesterday, I spoke to George's family and expressed the sorrow of our entire nation for their loss. I stand before you as a friend and ally to every American seeking justice and peace. And I stand before you in firm opposition to anyone exploiting this tragedy to loot, rob, attack, and menace. Healing, not hatred; justice, not chaos are the mission at hand.

The police officers involved in this incident have been fired from their jobs. One officer has already been arrested and charged with murder. State and federal authorities are carrying out an investigation to see what further charges may be warranted, including against, sadly, the other three.

In addition, my administration has opened a civil rights investigation, and I have asked the Attorney General and the Justice Department to expedite it.

I understand the pain that people are feeling. We support the right of peaceful protesters, and we hear their pleas. But what we are now seeing on the streets of our cities has nothing to do with justice or with peace.

The memory of George Floyd is being dishonored by rioters, looters, and anarchists. The violence and vandalism is being led by Antifa and other radical left-wing groups who are terrorizing the innocent, destroying jobs, hurting businesses, and burning down buildings.

The main victims of this horrible, horrible situations are the citizens who live in these once lovely communities. The mobs are devastating the life’s work of good people and destroying their dreams. Right now, America needs creation, not destruction; cooperation, not contempt; security, not anarchy. And there will be no anarchy. Civilization must be cherished, defended, and protected. The voices of law-abiding citizens must be heard, and heard very loudly.

We cannot and must not allow a small group of criminals and vandals to wreck our cities and lay waste to our communities. We must defend the rights of every citizen to live without violence, prejudice, or fear.

We support the overwhelming majority of police officers who are incredible in every way and devoted public servants. They keep our cities safe, protect our communities from gangs and drugs, and risk their own lives for us every day.

No one is more upset than fellow law enforcement officers by the small handful who fail to abide by their oath to serve and protect. My administration will stop mob violence and will stop it cold.

It does not serve the interests of justice or any citizen of any race, color, or creed for the government to give into anarchy, abandon police precincts, or allow communities to be burned to the ground. It won’t happen.

Those making excuses or justifications for violence are not helping the downtrodden, but delivering new anguish and new pain.

From day one of my administration, we have made it a top priority to build up distressed communities and revitalize our crumbling inner cities.

We fought hard with Senator Tim Scott and many others to create Opportunity Zones, helping to draw a surge of new investment to the places in our country that need it most. We must all work together as a society to expand opportunity and to create a future of greater dignity and promise for all of our people. We must forge a partnership with community leaders, local law enforcement, and the faith community to restore hope.

Radical-left criminals, thugs, and others all throughout our country and throughout the world will not be allowed to set communities ablaze. We won't let it happen. It harms those who have the least. And we will be protecting those who have the least.

The leadership of the National Guard and the Department of Justice are now in close communication with state and city officials in Minnesota. And we're coordinating our efforts with local law enforcement all across our nation.

In America, justice is never achieved at the hands of an angry mob. I will not allow angry mobs to dominate. It won't happen. It is essential that we protect the crown jewel of American democracy: the rule of law and our independent system of justice. Every citizen in every community has the right to be safe in their workplace, safe in their homes, and safe in our city streets.

This is the sacred right of all Americans that I am totally determined to defend and will defend. My administration will always stand against violence, mayhem, and disorder.

We will stand with the family of George Floyd with the peaceful protesters and with every law-abiding citizen who wants decency, civility, safety, and security.

We are working toward a more just society, but that means building up, not tearing down; joining hands, not hurling fists; standing in solidarity, not surrendering to hostility"....

251 We knew this was coming -- riots in the streets. Or we should have known. This is the Left, after all. They tried the Russia farce. They thought they could fool people, intimidate GOP legislators and destroy Trump with obscurantism and lies at higher levels. That failed, of course. So they turned more legislatively thuggish (naturally) with the ludicrous impeachment lies and "hearings." That failed. COVID came along and that became the ticket. All hands on deck for that collective and covert economic destruction campaign. Now we have the convenient cataclysmic "racist" event to carry us through the summer. Pure, out-and-out chaos and destruction. Just the Left, finding its level.

You want real cynicism? Come sit next to me.

If the left tries - or succeeds - in killing PDT, nothing will happen and no one will be punished. You'll have a modern Oswald silenced by a modern "lone nut" Ruby and a modern Warren Commission to cover it up.

Oh, the right will fulminate on websites and threaten to burn the country down, but in the end, we will be lectured to and beaten down by our betters who will claim that it's not who we are, and we must come together with the new president (a Dem, of course - Pence, too, will be sidelined) and move on past the anger and hatred of the Trump years to restore the better angels of our nature.

Think I'm exaggerating? The Dems damned nearly killed Steve Scalise. Did anyone pay for that? Did anyone investigate Hodgkinson's e-mails to see if he was encouraged by his congressman? Were Dems - and Bernie, in particular - treated as the national pariahs they should have been?

The fcking freak of nature who had her heel on the neck of people for the Flu Manchu hysteria told the cops to not break up any gatherings of protestors. Then she wouldn't allow the NG to be brought in. The savages destroyed the city. And not a word from Jabba. Not one word from that fat POS who ran roughshod over the state with his lock down BS.

Sure seems that way. How convenient since not only is the phony
pandemic petering out and the economy set to take off again, but blacks
have seemingly leaving the Democrat plantation/death camp for the past
few years thanks to Trump. And Trump is now being labeled the real
murderer of George Floyd.



Whatever the hell AG Barr is doing, I'd swing 90 degrees and start

I completely agree with this. Last night I said this is Soro's Tet Offensive. The Flu Manchu lock down didn't kill the economy the way the left wanted and they were afraid it would come roaring back so they decided to burn the economy to the ground. At the same time as blacks are turning their backs on the party of slavery the left are to try to keep them on the plantation because "racist Republicans want to killed them". This is political and economic warfare

The contrast with all these cities and Detroit is amazing. Protesters in
Detroit tried really hard to get riots going but the mayor, police
chief, and NAACP stopped it. A firm hand and several arrests were all it
took, but nobody is interviewing, or even talking to the leaders in
Detroit. Our local news stations were clearly disappointed in the lack
of anarchic and bloodshed. More masks being removed. ==


If that is the case, they are fully aware how this will reflect on the black community. they lost about 100 years of progress and civil rights marches over last couple of days.

St. Paul-based developer Wellington Management Inc. woke up on Thursday morning to find its under-construction, 190-unit apartment project in its Minnehaha Commons redevelopment near the intersection of Lake Street and Minnehaha Avenue in south Minneapolis had been torched and burned to the ground.

The six-story, 190-unit affordable housing project had been slated to open in the spring of 2021. A city of Minneapolis worksheet on the project listed the total development cost at approximately $37 million, including contingency and reserve funds; land and construction costs were about $30 million. The apartment project has been known as Midtown Corner.

Case in point: His reasoning on Newsom's power to discriminate against churches is a weak handjob.

RBG can't croke fast enough to fix this, which will make Alito the swing vote and make Roberts moot.

If RBG crokes soon, it'll get even sportier, no?

They were smashing windows and cop cars in the middle of the day I guess that was the peaceful start.

It's standard operating procedure for the left. They blame conservatives for everything they do.

Blaming Russia is just a continuation of blaming Trump and be assured blaming Trump just means blaming us.

Yes, and the more I study Spain in the 1930s the more nervous I get.

People saying "Let's get it on, already!" have no idea what will happen.

Here's the thing: Spain had no foreign possessions and no foreign enemies. It was an isolated strategic backwater. Foreigners interfered because of ideological sympathy, but no one wanted to partition Spain or permanently wreck it (okay Communism would have done that, but you know what I mean).

What happens if the US does get a "hot" civil war? Does China launch its nukes and lunge at Taiwan? Do we get a general great power war? I guarantee you the rest of the world won't just sit and watch.

That is just a side effect. The main purpose of this chaos is to punish and scare conservatives and the norms, although I don't know how that helps them. Maybe the mostly peaceful protests were the plan and it was hijacked by Antifa.
Posted by: Ripley at May 31, 2020 08:35 AM (sGobE)



I would more or less argue the opposite.

You beat a slave until he/she does what you want him/her to do.

The Democrats/Commies have always considered Black People their personal political property and more important -

"the tip of the spear" for their revolution in America.

Destroying successful Blacks, destroying affordable housing, burning homes and business are all part of the "beating" they Democrats deem necessary to get their "slaves" motivated.

If it scares the norms, it's strictly in a "vote for us and this all stops" kind of way.

A goal, but not the goal.

"I completely agree with this. Last night I said this is Soro's Tet Offensive." quietman

Barr should have enough "troops" to fight on every front, but hard to tell how many inside are actually "The Resistance" (e.g. traitors/seditionists).


It was "interesting" that the first video was of the one cop, knee on neck. Later video surfaced of two other cops concealed behind the car ... so was the first video designed to show white man murdering black man?


It strains credulity to imagine the killer was actually paid to do it, or coerced, but possible I suppose. And sure, Floyd had health issues, but knee on neck for seven minutes, even after he was dead, plays to the audience. (and I'm not sure the knee cound not kill him. stop blood flow, if not just add enough stress to kill a man in duress already. But at the least, the perfect framing gave them The News ... and the officer had a long history of problems ... useful for just such an event perhaps.

471 No, it's a fallacy, proven by history. People have a limit, and there's no clear way to know when it has been reached.

If we do reach the limit, I don't think you will want to celebrate it.
Posted by: Ace-Endorsed Author A.H. Lloyd at May 31, 2020 08:29 AM (cfSRQ)

I don't think "a limit" is an established historical certainty. And saying "people have a limit" is very different than saying groups of people or societies have "a limit." In this particular case, we do not know if there is a collective limit.

Reaching a limit, defining the moment of the limit, requires a "nothing to lose" state of mind. That will be hard to reach in our case.

It is not in the nature of the bourgeois to "snap." People have too much to lose. Homes, jobs, investments, social standing.

And if there is a limit, and a critical mass of people decide to fight back in a meaningful way against a totalitarianism they suddenly and finally recognize, this will most likely be necessary reckoning and therefore, for all its cost and sacrifice, something ultimately to celebrate.

What options do we realistically have? The US is pulling the levers we have, which will further crippled China's economy.

Funny, we all focus on lockdowns hurting us, but China has to be reeling since they live or die by exports.

That's the big variable. China still has actual disease outbreaks, Hong Kong is an urban nightmare to patrol (Stalingrad on stilts), and Taiwan is now getting belligerent.

BTW, you know we sold them a shit-ton of weapons, right? Trump is turning every screw on these guys.

So we're not doing nothing, but short of landing troops, there's not much else for us.

but the trick is how to respond, from the top. For example, I'm sure Gov. Walz in Minnesota would love to sit back and do nothing, and force Trump to look bad while federalizing the response, Well, screw that. Give support to Walz, but let him make all the decisions, and if Walz lets his cities burn to the ground, then they burn. The response has GOT to be by local leadership, in every case.

And if they blow it, then let them lose their cities.

Rahm was terrible but he was bright enough to know that he had to keep businesses in the city and keep certain neighborhoods safe. On weekends they would send mounted patrols to Michigan Ave as the sun set because of the "youths" getting out of hand. Even with that the situation was getting out of hand. Lightfoot on the other hand is a militant leftist. She's out to get even with people. She's Obama on steroids.

Remember that Detroit had to surrender all of its authority to a bankruptcy administrator to a couple of years before the Mayor and City Council were allowed to do anything again. Once he ended all of the money games, there wasn't an incentive for the grifters to try and get into office anymore.

There are less than 20 major YUGE dams that provide most of the power and supply most of the major industrial cities.

Blow up those dams in a proper sequence and you get a massive nation long flood destroying property, lives, and industry.

If you can also, take out the military.

It's a complete knock out punch.

And don't think we'll be helping them build back up.

543 @114 Leftcoast Dawg, thanks for the ht on Minimanual of the Urban Guerrilla. Think Red Brigades, Baader-Meinhof, Black Panthers.

@251 Dan Smoot's Apprentice, absolutely correct.

This is a campaign of urban terrorism that, as I have posted before, is planned and is just beginning. Next up will be assassinations and bombings. ICE and CBP facilities and officers will be particularly targeted, because the radicals want to activate the front groups that favor open borders in order to broaden the coalition beyond BLM.

They have been preparing for this campaign since the Iraq antiwar movement. These are hardcore Communists who are the "revolutionary vanguard," in terms they would recognize. The Bolsheviks were never more than 5 percent of the Russian population, yet Lenin managed to patiently put together a coalition that toppled the Tsar and replace him with a parliamentary government. Only after that did the Bolsheviks set about wresting control of that government from Kerensky. What is Bernie's base of support? Maybe 10 percent of the electorate? How many additional people from the 40 million "army of the unemployed" could be brought over by promises of Green New Deal jobs, universal basic income, Medicare for All, and student debt forgiveness?

When the Democrats are defeated massively at the polls in November, the campaign of violence below the surface, coupled with the campaign of Resistance above the surface, will result in bloody riots designed to demonstrate to the uneducated that the government is not in control. The campaign will have total air cover in news media and social media. I predict an event timed for just before noon, January 20, so that the split screen will show live coverage of the event on one side and PDT taking the oath on the other side. I predict a terrorist attack against a soft target associated with the Inauguration, like the parade or a ball.

We have a long, hard fight ahead of us. We will win, but this is not going to be easy.

Garry McCarthy former Chief had the right of it on WGN last night. c.) she has lost the rank and file officers, completely and totally.

Saturday Overnight Open Thread (5/30/20)

The Saturday Night Joke

The king wanted to go fishing, and he asked the royal weather forecaster the forecast for the next few hours.

The palace meteorologist assured him that there was no chance of rain.

So the king and the queen went fishing. On the way, he met a man with a fishing pole riding on a donkey, and he asked the man if the fish were biting.

The fisherman said, "Your Majesty, you should return to the palace. In just a short time I expect a huge rainstorm."

The king replied: "I hold the palace meteorologist in high regard. He is an educated and experienced professional. Besides, I pay him very high wages. He gave me a very different forecast. I trust him."

So, the king continued on his way.

However, in a short time, torrential rain fell from the sky. The King and Queen were totally soaked.

Furious, the king returned to the palace and gave the order to execute the meteorologist.

Then he summoned the fisherman and offered him the prestigious position of royal forecaster.

The fisherman said, "Your Majesty, I do not know anything about forecasting. I obtain my information from my donkey. If I see my donkey's ears drooping, it means with certainty that it will rain."

So, the king hired the donkey.

And so, began the practice of hiring dumb asses to work in influential positions of government.

And thus, the symbol of the Democrat Party was born.

The practice continues to this day.

It's a Vox link, so you may or may not want to click onto it. The best and worst of streaming services.

The streaming wars are well and truly upon us.

And they’ve become radically more complicated in just the last year. Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon — the big fish in a small pond — are still making big moves (especially in the original programming game). The slightly younger CBS All Access is still the streaming home of CBS programming, of Star Trek, and of The Good Fight (one of TV’s best shows).

But the last seven months have heralded the arrival of AppleTV+, Disney+, and HBO Max, all pulling on their wetsuits to take a dip in a pond that seems to have less room by the day. When you consider that NBCUniversal’s Peacock is yet to arrive in earnest — it officially launches this summer — and that this census of streaming services doesn’t account for the scores of boutique options out there (to say nothing of streaming extensions of TV channels, like the Showtime and Starz apps), you begin to realize just how difficult it can be to figure out where to spend your streaming dollars.

The Saturday Overnight Open Thread. On the verge of being suave and sophisticated as the Mid-Morning Art Thread.
Do you want to give someone a memorable wedding gift? Why not take your inspiration from Renaissance art and give them a painting of a sexy weasel?

In the 16th century, weasels were a catch-all category for many of the furry, long-bodied carnivorous creatures in the mustelid family, such as ermine, sables, martens, ferrets, stoats and mink. These creatures often appear in Renaissance portraits of high-ranking noblewomen, and represent a fascinating language of sexual symbolism. Explore some of the hidden meanings of weasels below!

It must be horrible to go through life being a frustrated fucking bitch. Meet "Karen" Martine Shanchuk, a 40-year-old Sandy Hook resident.

After Shanchuk (pictured at right) confronted the man, he did not reverse course in the aisle. Shanchuk, cops charge, then “just stopped in the aisle to prevent him from continuing down the aisle in the wrong direction.”

Shanchuk “continued to yell” at the man, who was “not listening to her,” police report. She then “removed her face mask and spit in the male's face."

Cops responded to the market after the victim dialed 911 to say that “while shopping at Big Y, he got into an argument with a female shopper about going the wrong way down an aisle and that during the argument, the female spit in his face.”

Arrested for breach of peace, Shanchuk is free in advance of a July 17 court hearing

It does take all kinds to make the world go round. Doesn't it?

A man with a flip-flop fetish has been arrested after being found with more than 100 stolen pairs of them in his possession.

Theerapat Klaiya, 24, stole the footwear from homes in his neighbourhood, and later apparently had sex with each of them after several hours of wearing them.

The 24-year-old was arrested after police received dozens of complaints from confused residents saying their flip-flops had gone missing in Nonthaburi, central Thailand.

The Ace of Spades HQ, a smart military blog and The ONT Is Always Looking Out For YouTM team up to help your odds in a grenade explosion.

Grenades are diabolical little devices that go back as far as the 8th-century when soldiers from the Byzantine Empire began putting incendiary compounds in small stone or ceramic jars and hurling them at their enemies. Today’s grenades aren’t a whole lot more elegant.

There are a few kinds of grenades, with time-delayed fragmentation grenades being the most common in modern armies. Frag grenades are made of steel or some super-hard synthetic, and filled with explosive material. When you pull the detonation pin and release the handle, it triggers the fuse to ignite the charge.

Despite their explosive power, it isn’t the explosion itself that’s harmful. It’s the shrapnel. When a grenade blows up, the steel body disintegrates into a multitude of tiny pieces. Those fragments hurtle through the air in all directions, like a shotgun blast. The bumpy texture on the outside of many grenades (hence the nickname “pineapple” helps them erupt into more effective shrapnel. If one of those pieces catches you wrong, it can be deadly.

Logan Township police say a mother and son have been cited for fighting following a physical altercation that occurred on Memorial Day, according to a news release.

Police say officers were dispatched to a home along the 600 block of Avalon Road in Altoona, just after 9:30 p.m. Monday, after receiving reports of a domestic dispute.

Upon further investigation, officers say the incident began when the 41-year-old mother got into an argument with her 20-year-old son, and his girlfriend, and disconnected the WIFI service.

Police say in response, the son disconnected the power to the entire house, which led to the altercation becoming physical.

88 Per the movie thread:

The MPAA has always been bribed. They show preference on movies by certain producers EG Harvey Weinstein the same as the Oscars do.

Banning smoking seems like mission creep and busybody nonsense that should be pushed back on, otherwise you will get more of it in other categories. I want James Bond to smoke like a chimney. "You will make smoking look cool..." Bond makes assassination look cool and yet here we are.

The MPAA gave the South Park guys a hard time on Team America. X rating for stuff puppets do tells me that this is a racket. Of course for every time Parker and Stone took an edit they would find a non-graphic way to make the movie more profane and uncomfortable.

First thing tomorrow I'll start draining fluids out of the old engine and get the new one on the stand so I can put the new timing belt on it before dropping it in place.

I listened in for about 20-30 minutes and was overwhelmed. Rioting and looting stores and arson everywhere, attacking city hall, setting cars on fire, CTA and Rapid Transit Trains shut down inside the Loop (downtown Chicago).

Well, you may be right, but you gotta sort out what you mean by "bad stuff." Looting is, anecdotally, mostly locals, mostly opportunistic, so you'd expect it to be dominated by the unorganized. Throwing Molotov cocktails is a whole different order of bad. If it turned out that most of the people doing that were white, that would certainly be interesting. Don't know if that's the case, though.

Now in Seattle, the violent rioters have moved on to other blocks, and now looting in the downtown business district is underway and growing.

The local KOMO/ABC reporter says he cannot see a single cop anywhere.

A looter just stood by him and took a selfie while he was reporting.

Many stores, GAP, Doc Martin's, many others are actively being looted right now.

Why do so many looters steal mannequins out of the stores? Because they are. I can understand stealing clothing, electronics, but mannequins?

171 Well, as much as I don't think honorable blood should be spilled to save stupid communists from the governments they have themselves, this has to end. Declare the states with riots that extend beyond three consecutive days to be in a state of rebellion and send the army. A-10s and Apaches lighting up the center of the riot will end it immediately, with massive collateral damage.

They had the chance to contain this. You have a choice: numerical supremacy, cracked heads and paddy wagons all meted out aggressively, or body count.

They've lost control. The supremacy angle is lost.

Not surprised Chicago's going to hell. I recall my brothers and I once making an apocalypse survival plan that added up to "grab our parents and get us all the F out of Chicago." It's just a mess.
I'm sure many morons will be praying for your brother and all the other good cops out there tonight.

Posted by: Rosa Erik at May 30, 2020 10:17 PM

I am just so thankful that my mom got out of there 4 years ago. Retired to Arizona. 4 years ago this past week, ironically enough.

We grew up on the south side of Chicago about 7 blocks from Midway Airport. Was a nice quiet Polish neighborhood in the 1980s and early 1990s. When I went off to college in late 1990s, I came home to them having built the Orange Line RTA connecting Midway Airport to downtown Chicago. Entire area has been in a free fall ever since. Now my old neighborhood is Mexican and gang-infested. It's basically like comparing the Back to the Future 1955 to the new Biff Tannen alternate timeline 1955. Completely unrecognizable.

And thank you, Rosa. I know there is valid anger among a lot of people about police officers. But please know they are not all bad. Most are average people just trying to do their job. My little brother is definitely one of them. And they need our prayers.

I buy that as a premise for some of the locals. Not for the coordinated, widespread rioting. This is an op. Riots in MPLS with maybe a sympathy riot in New Orleans or Chicago, I could write that off as typical riotous madness.

This is something else. It's widespread and coordinated and it reeks of communist street warfare wearing the "racism" skin suit. If we had an FBI that did something other than try to execute coups and actively arm islamic terrorists, I suspect this wouldn't have happened. Who and what Antifa (and its various sisters) are has been known for some time. It should have been destroyed long ago.

Why do we have cops, exactly? And governors? And mayors? What purpose are they serving if they won't keep the peace. Sometimes it's "can't" but in many places - Minnesota chief among them at the moment - it's "won't." Or, it's "wouldn't" but now it's too late.

Actually an excellent question.

IMO it was both, the Vietnam protests were increasingly violent, the RFK assassination (and MLK and other assassinations) were just other examples of out of control lawlessness and hopelessness of the times. After 2 months the DNC convention happened in Chicago that just reinforced the lawlessness.

Earlier today I was at my doctor's clinic and CNN was on. There was some government bozo from Minnehopelis being interviewed wanting the protesters to practice social distancing and wearing masks. I just broke out laughing. Another patient there gave me a dirty look.

315 Report from Flyover Capital, NE Oklahoma, Smallville

Got out to the not-Aldi grocery store today. Just as with Aldi last night, crew was wearing masks (badly) but we saw no customers masked, until right as we were leaving I saw a couple of... odd-looking gents, masked. Probably for the best that they were. !

I really kind-of let loose as we came in. Pointing to every "in this together" and "stand far apart" sign and sticker, I said, not real loudly, "I hate that. And I hate that. And..." But smiling and waving at people.

One aisle didn't have arrows on the floor. I stood there helplessly crying out, "Won't someone tell me which way I'm supposed to go?"

Waiting at checkout, I walked off the short distance between the "stay this far apart" stickers. I said to the couple in line behind us, "I don't think these rows are six feet apart!" AND THE LADY BEHIND ME SAID: "GOOD THING THE VIRUS DOESN'T TRAVEL SIDEWAYS!" She beat me to it!

Made. My. Day.

And this here is why they fail. They had riots last night. It's the weekend now, with loud plans from all corners to amplify.

The time to call up the guard - and do so *loudly* - was this morning or last night, not after it turns out their plans weren't just loose talk.

They are safe in their suburbs twittering that the poor protesters should be allowed to loot and pillage as they see fit. And never mind the black families (such as they are after the Great Society and 6 decades of fatherlessness) that have to live in those communities once the rioters have rioted themselves out.

353 "Did the riots and/or Vietnam bring Nixon a win, or did RFK's death?"

Let's not forget the effect of George Wallace's third party candidacy, which got 9.9 million popular votes and 46 electoral votes from 5 Southern states (LA, AR, MS, AL, GA). The "Solid South" was still Dem or Dem-leaning at the time so I would guess those votes were probably diverted more from Humphrey than from Nixon. I kinda suspect he would have done just as well against RFK, assuming that there were still plenty of Southern Democrats at the time who had a grudge against JFK and RFK for forcing them to desegregate.

Still going on. I saw there was some tear gas earlier tonight. I don't think they've burned any police cars--that seems to be the signature move for the A-list Antifa-freaks hitting other cities.

All day today the stores on the Plaza were all boarding up their windows. I guess they're all closed until Monday.

(The Country Club Plaza is the ritzy up-scale shopping and restaurant area in KCMO, for those who don't know).

Oops, late update from Fox4 News . . . National Guard is rolling into town, more smoke (tear gas?) canisters being shot into the Plaza area. Doesn't seem to be nearly as freaky as in other big cities though. So far.

Then you tell me.

We just spent months under an undeclared martial law over a viral scare that was no stronger than a flu. The martial law was imposed by force of arms on behalf of various state and local governments - while encouraged by some federal agencies.

Now we have riots - conducted under the protection of the same state and local governments - and we sit here cheering because now we may really get a federally enforced martial law.

At some point - some of you may want to consider that "they" are playing a completely different game: With different goals. And instead of looking down your noses at their distasteful gutter tactics - take a peek at who is dictating to who.

And what happens when on cop like Derek Chauvin go hot and a bullet, fired from a black rifle hits a peaceful protester? Because you know that as soon as the bullets start flying, it's going to be the Gaza playbook. The good boy, the good good boy (who happened to be smashing in the windows of a Ferrari dealership) was just an aspiring college kid who had a great life ahead of him. He was just letting out some anger!

Then you tell me.

We just spent months under an undeclared martial law over a viral scare that was no stronger than a flu. The martial law was imposed by force of arms on behalf of various state and local governments - while encouraged by some federal agencies.

Now we have riots - conducted under the protection of the same state and local governments - and we sit here cheering because now we may really get a federally enforced martial law.

The Space Shuttle Orbiters had the capability to be programmed to auto-land. Adequate sensors were already built-into the Orbiter and installed on the planned Shuttle landing runways. All that was needed was to program the software to close-the-loop. The Astronaut Office refused to allow auto-land be implemented, even as a back-up in case of the pilots getting sick or somehow being disabled in flight.

The pilot-rated Shuttle Orbiter astronauts had their pride and they were not going to simply be along for the ride for landing, as they had to be for launch (events, and especially problems, happen too fast for human recognition and proper reaction during the launch and ascent phases).

It's an ongoing string of crises that is meant to solely undermine peoples faith in our institutions - and specifically the man at the head of them.

I cannot understate just how bad this is for a president to be presiding over the precipice of what appears to be a race war. Even if he's done nothing to contribute to it. The media will excoriate him because HE caused it by saying the Charlottesville white supremacists were "good people". (Even though we all know he didn't say that).

While you all might enjoy seeing "blue" cities burn, just realize that the non-educated voter sitting in front of CNN or Fox or NBC is going to hold one person accountable for it come November - and it ain't their local mayor.

Put riot control in the hands of the U.S. Marshal Service. They are woefully undermanned for this? Well, let them deputize people on line. Any adult of good character, who possesses a Concealed Carry permit, or veterans, can sign up on line, and as long as they have a reference from a judge, congressperson, sheriff, etc., they get a badge number by e-mail, and a printable commission. And all Marshals and deputies will have full legal immunity for shooting down rioters in the street. If the Riot Act has been read, or a state of insurrection declared, it's a free-fire zone for Marshals.

An autopsy by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner "revealed no physical findings that support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation," the complaint states.

"Mr. Floyd had underlying health conditions including coronary artery disease and hypertensive heart disease," the report states. "The combined effects of Mr. Floyd being restrained by the police, his underlying health conditions and any potential intoxicants in his system likely contributed to his death."


Sounds like a stress related heart attack to me. Doubt related to minimal pressure on side of neck, which, more likely than not, is what was being applied by the officer.

IMO explains why he allowed himself to be filmed.

Depends. And then we'll see just how well those who are pulling the strings understand the game.

If they hit the trailer parks, the working poor, and the pissed off portions of the middle class - this all ends with the police trying to make enough arrests to save face while they haul off the bodies.

If, however, the mob hits the affluent suburbs that largely support the mob - then the police will get sporty. Which will spur the affluent to support the mob even more - while also begging for more police to keep those who would put down the mob in check.

I thought that too, but then I read up on the actual charge, Third Degree Murder. Doesn't require intent. But it does require that the killing happens in the process of committing another felony (many exceptions about what felony that can be). Not sure how the DA sorts that one out. I suspect he's throwing that over the wall to redirect the heat to somewhere else.

Gov did piecemeal call ups day by day; first, 200; then, 500; yesterday, finally, he called up the entire state. They're still focused on main riot points, but I like to think that frees up the MPD for local enforcement.

I'm literally smack dab in the middle of one the most looted parts of the city. We haven't seen diddly-squat in terms of proactive or reactive police presence.

Only two entrances through the fenced perimeter. Won't take too much to block them off, and they're in the direct view of brick & block landscaping features, at 40 yards range.

Those brick n' block features are about 20" thick, and provide cover for all but .308 AP and above.

We're not going to wait for the cops to help hold things down, if needed.

And not that it matters, but I'll be the only white man in the mix. My heavily armed and attitude-laden neighbors are a virtual U.N. of hues.

Minneapolis is a "weak mayor" system where the city council holds more power. Jacob Frey is likely toast in two years come reelection. Easier for the state party to toss him overboard for another cookie cutter candidate.

In 2018, two long standing business centric councilmen were "surprisingly" voted out in favor of young, transgender candidates. Yes, really.

So, I'm not optimistic about the immediate future of Minneapolis politics. High school student council popularity contest level of seriousness around here.

My read is that Gov Walz finally mobilized the full force of the state guard only after Trump threatened to bring in federal military like Clinton did during the '92 LA riots.

MN pols tried doing the lame, superficial "look we're doing something without really doing something" call ups for two days, and good parts of town got ransacked like no one was watching.

Maybe tonight and tomorrow will be better, but I'm not convinced. Looting around here really seems to pick up in random places around 2am. It's strategic, quick, small target looting that's over before police can respond, when and if they respond, but last two nights, they were told not to respond.

It'll be interesting to see if that pans out, because if that IS true, then that truly does escalate this to a Murder 1 charge. As it is, I see Manslaughter of some level as the appropriate charge based on what we saw. Don't know about Minnesota, but in Texas, Manslaughter with aggravating circumstances can still carry a 15 - 20 year sentence.

888 I was recently YouTube binge-watching Cops, Live PD, Live PD Cam (the best), watched a lot, cops have zero tolerance for friskiness, getting hit or kicked or hurt in any way is not in the job description, they put people down hard and fast and they all pile in, very common to see them kneel on heads on asphalt but did not notice ever any kneeling on necks. I've had neck-related medical problems (resolved) and, as my doctor said, "there's a lot going on in there". I repeat, I never saw any neck-kneeling on a lot of video.

ALSO - we have a lot of colleges in Philly. WHO THE HELL is going to want to send their kid t U Penn, Temple (!!!!), Lasalle (!!!!!!!) or Drexel (!!!!!!!!!) after this?!?! you'd have to be nuts!

Think Ds and MSM will test "Trump didn't react strongly enough"? Make
him look weak and scared in a real challenge. Plus, it might well be
true. But they'll probably settle on their stock in trade, bullshit
conspiracy, and claim Trump decided to let it burn because he's a racist
or something. They'd be better off saying Trump was scared and came up
short in a crisis.

918 @880: "It'll be interesting to see if that pans out, because if that IS true, then that truly does escalate this to a Murder 1 charge. As it is, I see Manslaughter of some level as the appropriate charge based on what we saw. Don't know about Minnesota, but in Texas, Manslaughter with aggravating circumstances can still carry a 15 - 20 year sentence."

Max 25 years here for the third degree charge.

Cop worked bar security for sixteen years, so by that time, he was likely the sketchy, mobbed up asshole sipping drinks behind the bar, looking over the rest of security staff like he was a prince.

Victim was an outside door bouncer for a year and a half.

Owner insists they likely didn't know each other.

I say, victim likely didn't know the cop, but the cop sure as hell knew the victim, and the only question is whether or not the cop recognized the victim during arrest, and if so, then fuck him based on his long record of misconduct and excessive force.

I toured Temple when I was deciding on which colleges to go to. My parents went there. During the tour, they pointed out their extremely numerous (even as compared to other campuses I toured) blue police call posts and mentioned that if you're being pursued, just hit them as you run. The dispatch computers would calculate likely routes and they'd send the cops to intercept you and your pursuer.

And this was in 2003.

So, less than an hour ago, Dow Constantine, the King County Council Executive (county government where Seattle is in the equivalent of Mayor Jenny Durkin is to the city of Seattle), just put out a tweet.

He is bragging that his employees donated 1,000 cloth masks to protesters earlier today, because "we are proud here to protect the right to protest."


This is after all of the destruction and chaos that we have collectively reported here.

971 @929: "929 Minneapolis, cars with no plates - zero tolerance. Really?"

Yes, really. I saw it first hand, from a few years away, as a flash mob ransacked our fully stocked Apple Stock. Most of the car had no license plates, or had doctored their plates with Sharpies to change 3s into 8s and such.

Worse, cars without plates don't travel alone, but in groups of two or three cars. I guess that makes things easier when you've gotta flee a scene.

The working together at the same bar story sounded so weird at first that no one believe it until the bar owner did a local television interview and confirmed.

Yes. Once a state of insurrection has been declared they become, in effect, enemy combatants.

You don't need to arrest them. You don't need to "give them a fair trial". You don't need to give them shit.

And unless they're wearing uniforms or insignia, they're UNLAWFUL combatants, and thus may be shot on the spot under the laws of war. I don't think a pair of "skinny jeans" qualifies there.

If they ARE wearing a uniform, they have to be given POW status, which still doesn't mean they get lawyers or trials (indeed, it is forbidden to put POWs on trial).

After hostilities are over, those who are U.S. citizens could then be charged with treason.

I've been inside of some mildly violent political protests, and know the kinds of people who show up for those events, so I'm willing to cut them some slack.

But, in the spirit of social distancing, I'll say that if you stand within six feet of someone throwing a brick at the police, or someone who smashes a storefront window and goes inside to loot, then you cease being a "peaceful protester", and you become, in fact, a rioter and looter, even if you yourself don't do any real damage.

The people who pretended to be on "our side" like McCain and Romney and the rest were even bigger pieces of shit than the Democrats.

so really, aren't you absolutely amazed that Trump has accomplished as much as he has? The House is corrupt, the Senate is corrupt, the Bureaucracy is corrupt, the FBI is corrupt, the DOJ is corrupt, the CIA is corrupt, most State Governments are corrupt, Courts are corrupt from top to bottom, the Media is corrupt, all of Academia is corrupt - how is it possible that Trump is still standing?

Preaching to the choir.

I have not been part of the GOP for about 25 years.

And before that? yeah, I voted Perot twice.

You have no idea how betrayed I feel. I spent my young adult years overseas doing some REALLY shitty things, to protect this country.

Fucked up my marriage. Ended up a full time single Parent.

Screwed up a LOT of economic opportunity, because I had traveled, and seen that this was a very special place.

Yet somehow the country I fought to protect, no longer exists.

There are still really good people out there. Hell, I think the vast majority, yet somehow we are not heard. Just the idiots.

But again, the left has shit the bed. The guy who was beaten (killed? not sure yet) probably wasn't any kind of conservative at all, not living there. The left, not just in Dallas, but everywhere they are rioting, has just forfeited any sympathy from the middle they may ever have had.

1102 Well, I can report that everything is peaceful and quiet in my AO. I spent 7 hours out in the sun and wind stripping parts off an old car. It got hot and thirsty out, so a couple of beers were consumed. Got what I needed from it, and picked it up with the tractor and trundled it back to its resting place.

Went to town, and bought some groceries, and then took the whiskey road up to the next town, where the hotel bar is open, and had two beers out back in the beer garden in the sunshine, with two tables full of friendly people. No masks or social distancing in evidence. Then I drove home by way of one of the other gravel grid roads. Trees and hedges are greening up real nicely, too. It was a pleasant trip, all but a mile or two on the gravel, in the old Chevy pickup, which runs as sweet as the day it was new.

1123 There are basically two camps, out of those who hold an opinion. Those who look at riots and A) cheer it on as justice, or B) condemn it as evil brutality.


Everyone who is in camp A was already against Trump from the beginning. Those are not votes lost, those are votes that were never in play. And the longer the violence and destruction goes unanswered, the more and more undecideds that are going to slip into sympathizing with camp B. They're not going to slip into camp A unless they've been indoctrinated to believe A well before this.

To the degree, that ABC 13 is airing reruns of a stupid reality show. Other channels have SNL and other crap on.

No live "On Air" of Houston streets or stresses.

I despise the Houston mayor, but he and the HPD Chief, although a gun grabbing California Highway Patrol import.. both have managed this (so far) with just the right, deft touch, so as to tamp down the passions on the Left.

I do not AGREE with statements they've made. But the seem so far, as to co-opted the drive on the left to incorporate it into the "Peaceful Protest" side of the equation.

To be sure, there are MANY ready to rumble Antifa activists in the streets.

But HPD has done TEXTBOOK work with tactics to surround them, isolate them, freeze them and funnel them into non volatile areas.

If Houston and HPD can weather this storm intact, it will re-write many a textbook. A good service for our side.

But the pity is, the assholes will study it too, and know how to breach it at the next opportunity.

You need a warrant for that. Also, you don't get association by default. Also, the contact tracing stuff uses Near Field data, which has a much finer resolution than cell tower data.

The "contact tracing" bullshit requires that you have granted consent to make your location a matter of public record. That opens up the possibility for large-scale data mining.

"Oh, you say you don't know Antifa Thug X? Then why was your phone within three feet of him when he was caught on camera torching this store? And why does the camera only show one other person within three feet of him?"

Like I said, this is a whole different level from mapping tower pings.

1215 Let me give you, what I hope, is some solid (normal) news. My son is a college baseball player. In our part of the state, we have what is called a "semi-pro" baseball league (when i first moved here, even Mitch Williams (post-retirement) was paid to pitch a few innings in this league). In reality, it is "town-baseball". Something like an adult softball league, but baseball. But, with minor league baseball shut down, "semi-pro" is the only game in town. Today, there was no less than three local tv stations at the games today. Something unheard of in this league.

In the stands, not any social distancing to be had. If MLB doesn't get their sh*t together, I wouldn't be surprised if ESPN is at this league's next tournament. Anyhoo, for once in three months, it was nice to feel "normal" again.

Warrant only if you're doing direct god's eye view surveillance, or need evidence for criminal prosecution, but no warrant needed for research, and no warrant need if you buy basic geolocation data from telecoms and third party "quality assurance" companies.

And association is the name of the game in social media and broad surveillance data science. Association is never a black or white issue. It's just another variable in the equation.

Only a question of degree.

1231 You need a warrant for that. Also, you don't get association by default. Also, the contact tracing stuff uses Near Field data, which has a much finer resolution than cell tower data.

That is pretty old. NextGen 911 services work a different way. When you make a call to a 911 center, the first location that shows up is the nearest cellphone tower. Your phone then transmits GPS coordinates and the Phase 2 data from the ALI provides that information.

I can tell what lane of the street you are on with that.

See RapidSOS. They are now partnering with Covid 19 tracers. They know what room of the house your phone is charging in.

1235 Trump really needs to address the nation. Defend the right of people to peacefully protest (even though I think the friggin' protests are stupid) and condemn the rioters. Appeal to Americans of good will who are frightened by this.

Just sending out tweets isn't going to cut it. I appreciate that it's a matter for the mayors and governors to handle (and most are doing a piss poor job) but Americans need to hear directly from their President right now. And I suspect that a good speech will move many in his direction.

1238 > Only a question of degree.

With basic cell tower location you're lucky if you can put someone within a square mile. Could be as much as twenty square miles in a rural location.

With NFC you can locate someone within centimeters.

While it's true that that's a "question of degree", knowing where someone was within centimeters is a whole lot more useful than knowing where they were within twenty square miles.

Exactly so, you're correct.

But I think the HPD Union has somehow managed to get a vice-like grip on his balls, and is steering him accordingly.

HPD has been in the NOT FUCKING AROUND mode for at least 48 hours. And it shows.

Very strong Department of Public Safety deployment here, too.

Most interestingly?

We've not heard a peep out of our Mousketeer of a County Judge Mayor-ette, Lina Hildago.

REMEMBER THIS, and use it as a campaign issue against her.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office and all County Officials, have been completely AWOL in all this, since day one.

That may help with elevation - as in what floor is someone on. But I know of many tales of where the ALI data provided automagically to 911 call centers provided pin-point location data. One happened during a blizzard, the driver slid off a mountain road and was in a place no one could see them. It was only because of the precise GPS location data that the vic was found and rescued.

That comes out of the box.

I should mention also that ever since the WuFlu pandemic started, he's gone from being generally indifferent about the daily news and politics -- he hasn't voted in over 20 years - to a full on red pilled Trump supporter, and absolutely appalled by the actions of the media and the Dems. He's even conducting a sort of one-man war against Planned Parenthood on his (under an alias) Facebook page! (I hesitate to do so because I use Facebook primarily for my business and don't want to alienate potential customers) He would never have voted for Trump 4 years ago but both of us are in the "we'll crawl over broken glass to get to the polls for him" camp this year, and we can't be the only ones...

1270 @My Pimp, 2 nights ago I recommended reading "The Minimanual of the Urban Guerrilla" from that timeframe. I lived through all that and studied this stuff pretty deeply to G-2 these guys back then. 2 nights ago, when it was still pretty much just Minneapolis, I recognized what was going on. The tipoff to me was that the assault on the police station culminated in the gas pipes being broken inside to fill the police station with gas. That's a professional, or at least a well-trained amateur, at work there.

I take no pleasure in saying this is going to get a lot, lot worse. Bombings and assassinations are in our future. Given that BLM is a solid part of the coalition, the next target will be ICE and CBP, abetted and encouraged by prominent Democrats and many in the media, to try to bring folks from south of the border in as fellow travelers.

That is the elephant in the room that everyone is avoiding. Lock everyone up for 2 1/2 months, kill 41 million jobs, let the Media terrorize everyone day and night non stop - we put so much pressure on the system that all of the weak points were bound to blow, and they're blowing.

Engineers sometimes talk about the Design Margin, the space you have to go outside the specified limits of any system and still stay safe. We blew past the Design Margin of our society long ago. Of course it's breaking.

1304 We were doing great 6 months ago and now we're just going to sit back and let the left silt our throats?

the "right" started the slit with the Lockdown.

The Left is just pushing it in.

Both sides are now the enemy IMO.

I'm trying to see a path back to the Constitution.

Not seeing it.

1307 Cities have become unlivable. Urban flight 2.0 is going to happen.

--

Was it Freddie Gray and Baltimore where the left started complaining that blacks in the area were failures because 40 years ago whites wouldn't keep operating businesses in places where this kind of crap keeps happening, blissfully unaware that insurance doesn't cover riots and, unless it's a payday or title loan business that can make a LOT of money to counter that risk, it's not worth it?

Twenty years from now it will be the same here. Racists!!! And not a single thing mentioned about this week.

1308 My read is that Gov Walz finally mobilized the full force of the state guard only after Trump threatened to bring in federal military like Clinton did during the '92 LA riots.

Impossible. Clinton was elected in November, '92 and wasn't inaugurated until January, '93. The LA Riots in '92 took place in April.

1309 @Tom Servo, I really hope you're right, but I don't think so. This has been planned for a long time. The strategy goes back to the Russian Revolution, and in many ways this is a lot like it.

They've been preparing the ground for at least 10 years, starting with the Iraq War protests. They have a Utopian vision of a post-capitalist society with free stuff for everyone powered by solar panels and windmills where people don't eat meat. They believe that human survival depends on it. As with any movement, some are more committed than others, but the "revolutionary vanguard" is really fanatic.

It took the Bolsheviks from 1905 to 1917 to take power, and even in 1917 they were no more than 5 percent of the Russian people. But they assembled a coalition of fellow travelers to overthrow the Tsar, then after the Tsar was gone set about eliminating them from power.

The purpose of this campaign is to demonstrate that the government can't protect its officials and the bourgeoisie. We are in for a fight for the rest of the year, because they have target lists and means to execute their plans.

They think they're winning.

We haven't gone weapons free, as yet.

As to the safety margins? Well, that's a two-way valve now, isn't it.

98% of the "safety" was to protect THEM from US.

So they've blown the 2% margin.

Sucks to be them. Soon.
