Oh My: Climate Scientists Admit Past "Models" Were Wrong, Admit That the Rapid Warming Predicted by Models Hasn't Been Seen, and Revise the Schedule for the Apocalypse to Put It Off for 20 Years

Defining doomsday down.

The National Laughingstock (the SJWashingon Post) sheepishly confesses:

The new research, thus, seems to potentially empower a critique of climate science that has often been leveled by skeptics, doubters and “lukewarmers” who argue that warming is shaping up to be less than climate models have predicted…

Overall, the dispute raises questions about how widely the carbon-budget concept has proliferated -- and just how much we actually understand it.

“It goes to show, this carbon-budget approach is still much more, let’s say, immature scientifically than what we often assume,” [Center for International Climate Research’s Glen] Peters said.

Now they're swimming in grant money cash and have the ear of presidents and prime ministers.

122 No, not a question of "maturity" of any of the concepts. Lack of any fundamental basis to the *entire* concept - that CO2 concentration (whatever the source) can, or ever has, driven the (dubious in itself, as a concept) of "global climate".

And recall that many "skeptics" (itself a bizarre and fatal indicator that there's no "science" happening - skepticism and focus on empirical verification *is* science) have stipulated these fundamental, unproven, premises that are not just *not* indicated by the geologic record, but contradicted by it.

But there is a clear lack of energy, vituperation, and bluntness in the overdue push-back against this non-science. Even in pulling out of the Paris accord, the administration stupidly framed it in terms of details, and relative financial burdens. There needs to be a political and PR offensive to crush this idiocy, exploit its vulnerability. And reject all of the premises from the outset.

134 FFS, they used to teach this stuff in 8th grade Earth Science class.

Now it's politically inconvenient to do so.

It's called an Inter-Glacial Warming Period, that period of time between Glacial Periods. The cycle is about 25-30 thousand years. The Earth has been through this cycle about a dozen times in recent geologic time.

The current Inter-Glacial Warming Period has been going on for about 10 thousand years, a steady rise in temp with some occasional deviations up or down from the general warming trend.

Calling this normal climate change human-caused is the exact same nonsense as a witch-doctor claiming the volcano is rumbling and going to erupt because the gods are angry over the evil ways of the people.

Well!

Young lady, the "GLOBAL PROBLEMS" are a shadow of what they once were, and the fixes for pollution were set in motion in the 1970s, well before this bullshit global warming crap arrived on the scene.

I defy any Moron to find a place in the United States that is more polluted than it was in the 1970s, or, for that matter, even close to as bad.

And with the exception of China and Russia and a few other autocracies, the rest of the world is doing quite well.

They always try to walk the narrow line between "it's almost too late" and "it's already too late, but we can stave off the worst". Their model's credibility pendulum had swung too far into #2, so they have to reset to #1 to keep up the line-walking.

Remember that uncertainty empowers them.. traditionally. If they can claim uncertainty *only* about whether it's already too late, they can stampede people, because uncertainty breeds fear just as well as it saps credibility. But they waited too long for a correction, lagged too long in the "OMG IT'S NOW AND WE'RE DOOMED" side of things.

238 They are walking it back because what they have said would happen has not and is not happening. This despite the outright distortion of weather and temperature data by NOAA and NASA GISS. The massive gain in the Surface mass balance of the Greenland ice sheet and the fact that Arctic sea ice has grown 40% since it's most recent low in 2012. The fact that new glaciation is starting. The fact that the Great lakes this year are running 2-3 deg F below average temp. And so many more metrics once claimed to be the "canary in the coal mine" are defying the dire predictions made for them.

And the fact that people, sane everyday people, just aren't buying what they've been selling plus tons of other factors just can't be ignored or covered up anymore like the fact they failed to get into the US coffers when Trump refused to play ball on the "Paris Accords".

"Climate Change" was never about the climate. It is the ideal tool for the justification of the implementation of a socialist agenda. The UN IPCC was never a scientific body but a political one. Every single word in the many IPCC reports are parsed by politicians before the report was released. And it was the IPCC reports upon which the claim of a consensus was founded.

262 That sounds like my old happy fun church. I loved it - felt very close to the Lord during worship time. Previously I was in a more traditional evangelical church, and was initially reluctant to switch - but happy fun church was where my daughter's family was, and I wanted us all to be together. Surprisingly, I liked it. Although I had to get used to the pastor preaching in jeans and a T-shirt. That, I could do without. But hey.

First Earth Day concerned about global cooling. Settled science.

That idiot and well known oceanographer Ted Danson in the 1980s predicted the oceans would be dead in ten years. Settled science.

Ice caps shrinking, polar bears floating on ice cubes, caribou herds increasing (only because they were near the warmth of pipelines). Predictions of ever worse hurricanes (that didn't appear for over a decade). Settled science.

Gradual and grudging exposure of the methods and motivations of the climate scientists who refused to release their data, were caught admitting they lied about all of it, wanted control of economies because they are Marxists so everything is justified, constant and more frequent use of 'concensus' when their lies are revealed, and a growing realization by the public that fluctuations in weather have been happening for several billion years. But settled science.

Reliance on societal and personal attacks on those who want proof of their predictions of catastrophe before disrupting the most successful country in history. Concensus and settled science shouted ever louder and more violently.

What a relief they got it right this time. Phew!

The Man Who Saved the World

Stanislov Petrov has died. Who is Stanislav Petrov? According to his obit in, of all places, the Guardian, he once saved the world from nuclear annihilation:

Stanislav Petrov was on duty in a secret command centre outside Moscow on 26 September 1983 when a radar screen showed that five Minuteman intercontinental ballistic missiles had been launched by the US towards the Soviet Union.

Red Army protocol would have been to order a retaliatory strike, but Petrov – then a 44-year-old lieutenant colonel – ignored the warning, relying on a “gut instinct” that told him it was a false alert...Instead of triggering a third world war, Petrov called in a malfunction in the early warning system. But even as he did so, he later admitted, he was not entirely sure he was doing the right thing.

Turned out the error was caused by a satellite mistaking sunlight reflections off of the tops of clouds as missile launches.

Holy crap:

He also served rayciss collard greens and cornbread.

Now, as a cornbread-lovin' honkey, I have to ask: WTF is rayciss about cornbread?

And I bet a lot of my white southern friends would be surprised to find out collard greens are rayciss.

66 The claim is always made that you can't legislate morality. What's important to understand is that you *can* legislate ethics - indeed, that's nearly the whole operative mode of law. You can't legislate in such a way that it makes clear that pedophilia is wrong, except insofar as agreed law states that there is an understood *ethic*. We have a rule that you do not have sex with kids.

The left are incapable of handling rules that don't fit what they want to do - they wish to be made to do what they want to do (and others made to join in), and for themselves and others to be forbidden from what they don't want to do. There are no real morals outside feelings, they reject the position of anyone who has them, and must degrade any societal ethic that respects a conscientious morality.

Moral decay and ethical decay are complementary. If the prevailing morals of even some of your own side (of habit) resist your favorite new degradation, the rule is easier to attack. Find the exception to "nobody has sex with kids", find the most attractive mercy cases, pry, pry, pry away at the edifice.

As a bonus, once the ethic is degraded, any moral argument is robbed of the lazy fallback - and most people are lazy. The Air Bud clause comes into effect - "well, there isn't a rule that...".

A) take the issue seriously, always.

B) determine to the best of your ability whether or not there is any truth to the statement. If it did happen, then you are on shaky ground and need to be seen to be "doing something" to dissociate your company from the behavior. (hate to say that, but it's today's corporate reality)

C) but there is also a possibility that 1) this never happened, or 2) it was just someone who got one of your t-shirts and who has nothing to do with you.

At least Manafort is fighting back.

It's about time the Trump people start calling out this shit for what it is: Obama was illegally spying on his political opponents, and using the NSA as his cover, and now his minions are trying to find some sort of crime (any crime) by some Trump-connected person, so that they can use it to try and justify all of Obama's illegal political spying.

95 Hoping that Ace or one of the co-bloggers will provide more insight into the Manafort surveillance. Was FusionGPS tasked with providing both the Russian dossier and initiating the 6/9/16 meeting with Don Jr/Manafort/Kushner to provide substance for Obama's FBI to ask for the first FISA warrant in June on Trump and, later, the one on Manafort? (Browder, Magnitsky Act creator, says it was the Russians who paid for its creation, which would be mind boggling, if true.) No doubt Obama's Admin spied on everyone, but wondering: needed the FISA to use as a "legal" reason for it for leaks? And, has anyone ever explained why the NYT reporter (Sexton) says he had been chasing the Trump Tower meeting "for a year"? Did he see the FISA request? How deep in the third-world politics did the previous Admin go?

128 The reason the slippery slope *possibility* should never be ignored is quite simple - most wrong is a corrupted, twisted version of something acceptable or even noble, and most wrongs are reached in stages.

Impossible to reach "have sex with eight-year-olds in stages"? Inadequacy. Lack of authority and control. Loss of innocence. A fetishized attraction to the ebullience, cheer, curiosity of youth, all those things that occurring naturally in women are reminiscent in any way of a child, and all the things about an adult woman that could become off-putting. All those things, each related to something right or good, one added after the next like a "how many t-shirts" contest until it's a full-blown paraphilia, *which never reaches a final destination, and grows*.

Besides, the only "trigger warning" they'll hear from me, is the subtle "click" of the safety being switched to "FIRE".

And if I want more cotton, I'm about 1/8th mile from a part of the Moody Compress facility here on Galveston Island.

Moody Compress runs about a half-million square ft. of warehouse and transshipment facility for bales and truck-sized rolls of cotton from all over Texas and the region. A major percentage of the Nation's cotton flows through these warehouses.

Harvest season sees literally hundreds of trucks per day, 24/7, rolling down 46th St. and 50th St. & Broadway, to offload their cargoes.

And I don't hear complaints from the dozens of black gentlemen who run the forklifts and cart-trains, as they cash their Moody Compress paychecks on a regular basis.

I would think they'd be rather pissed at anyone seeking to separate them from those jobs, which have existed here in Galveston, going all the way back to the 1880s, when the Moody family first established here in Galveston.

But then, I don't expect any know-nothing lefties to have such a grasp of history or reality, either.

152 The Slippery Slope fallacy isn't because its always wrong, but because in a structured debate or when using logical rhetoric, it fails in its task.

That is, it doesn't support your argument or defeat one's opponent, it simply demonstrates that something can go wrong in the future. That makes it a logical fallacy, but not a falsehood. Its a failure in its goal of the debate.

Like an appeal to authority or a personal attack, these are logical fallacies, even though they may be right. Your opponent very well may be a silly doo-doo head, but that doesn't mean his argument is false.

propaganda then the politicians will get on board.
---

I hate to say it, but i think that most people are really, REALLY susceptible to social pressure from their liberal friends and acquaintances.

You don't want to argue with them about something that doesn't impact you at all (let's use gay marriage as an example) and they are so passionate about it, you just give in and say "sure, do what you want" just to shut them up. Because these issues don't impact you. At all.

That might happen on a legislative level as well. Republicans just don't care about a lot of these issues, but think (hahahhaha) if they give in on them, Democrats will be their friends and work with them on other issues. BTW... not true.

That's how we get insane shit like men in ladies dressing rooms and the government paying for a lunatic soldiers sex change operation.

However... child sex does impact parents, as did men in the ladies dressing rooms. They will continue to push it (especially since Islam loves child rape) and it will be accepted, but it might take a few decades.

The participants in this wiki have developed an elaborate alternate world history timeline tracking over the past 30+ years how the world attempted to recover from the devastation and how formerly powerful nations, including ours, were reduced to scattered nation-states feebly communicating with one another. If you're into alternate history, looking for ideas for a post-nuclear apocalypse novel, or just contemplating what might have been if Petrov had not been there or made a different decision, check it out.

171 134 Jazz Shaw: "These $200K (NIH) studies are not about treating gender dysphoria, but are apparently more efforts to normalize it. And the taxpayers will foot the bill (including) Studies on puberty blockers for adolescents...

The idea that we have doctors in this country injecting children with foreign substances designed to intentionally retard the normal development of their otherwise healthy bodies is beyond belief. That's not a medical procedure... it's a war crime. These are doctors who not only shouldn't have a license to practice any more but should probably be in jail."

174 "Obama had to spy on Trump to protect himself."

"When we learn the whole truth (if we ever do), we will likely discover that Obama Inc. assembled a motley collection of different technically legal pretexts to spy on Trump's team.

Each individual pretext might be technically defensible. But together they add up to the crime of the century.

Obama's gamble was that the illegal surveillance would justify itself."

246 The Slippery Slope fallacy isn't because its always wrong, but because in a structured debate or when using logical rhetoric, it fails in its task.


It's not self-supporting, so a statement that x will always lead to y is not suitable as a proof.

However, reference to a similar circumstance is the most common type of slippery slope argument that is made: certain x have reliably led to certain y in the past, through steps x1, x2, x3.

It does not count as a formal proof, but it is within the bounds of logic to state that it demonstrates likelihood.

The common refutation, then is to claim that a claim is the full form statement of proof (a straw man), appeal to authority who says otherwise, and then to mock, ad hominem, anyone who states a likelihood claim.

In other words, slippery slopes are demonstrable, and their most popular rejection deserves for anyone making that rejection to receive a c* punt.

My firm got a negative google review from a snowflake who one of our engineers triggered somewhere at a social event. She says one of our engineers loudly proclaimed lesbians are terrible and should be fired, while wearing a shirt with our logo.

I wasn't there, don't know.

At any rate this person has gone after our firm online.

Any experience with this sort of thing? We're trying to prepare an outreach to this person if we can make contact, be nice about it, etc. Anyone know though if that fails if google lets people post negative reviews for statements allegedly made by staff in off hours (though perhaps while wearing a shirt promoting the firm?)

281 "212 >>Any tips of getting rid of a migraine?
Ice pack placed on the back of your next, preferably while supine in a dark room. That's what works for me..."

Also depends on whether you have a true migraine, or just a very bad headache. They're different, and my wife has had recurrent migraines for most of her adult life. Top signs of a true migraine are intense nausea, especially at any exposure to light, odd sensations of smell that come and go, and in many cases some very unusual visual manifestations that overlay normal vision. (crenelations and aura) Combined with intense pain, of course. It's been characterized as an electrical storm in the brain, and it takes time to burn itself out once one is triggered.

For a true migraine, painkillers such as codeine may provide temporary relief, but it will be back as soon as the painkiller wears off. She's found her best relief is Sumitriptan, most popular brand name Imitrex, best taken just as symptoms start to set in. It doesn't work for all sufferers though, nothing does.

Interestingly, Sumitriptan is not a pain killer, and as such does not have much of an effect on what is a bad headache, but not a true migraine.

285 Here's one supporting bit, I'm still digging for FBI data. I had the report in 2011 but its hard to find these days

Titled, "Educator Sexual Misconduct: A Synthesis of Existing Literature," the report says the mistreatment of students ranges from sexual comments to rape.

In fact, says the studies author, Carol Shakeshaft, professor of educational administration at Hofstra University, in Hempstead, New York, the scope of the school sex problem appears to far exceed the clergy abuse scandal that has rocked the Roman Catholic Church.

Comparing the incidence of sexual misconduct in schools with the Catholic Church scandal, Shakeshift notes that a study by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops concluded that 10,667 young people were sexually mistreated by priests between 1950 and 2002.

In contrast, the extrapolates from a national survey conducted for the American Association of University Women Educational Foundation in 2000 that roughly 290,000 students experienced some sort of physical sexual abuse by a public school employee between 1991 and 2000.

The figures suggest "the physical sexual abuse of students in schools is likely more than 100 times the abuse by priests," said Shakshaft, according to Education Week.

Indeed, more than 4.5 million students are subject to sexual misconduct by an employee of a school sometime between kindergarden and 12th grade, says the report.

323 Any tips of getting rid of a migraine?

First you need to determine whether heat or cold brings the better relief. Any relief.

It will tell you whether you're getting too much blood to the brain ( ice will help ), or not enough ( heating pad will help).

Feverfew helps a lot of people, and can help with prevention for some, but it will also depend on what the cause of the migraine is.

It was at a Christian bookstore, titled "How Can I Be Sure?" Tim and Beverly LaHaye I think?

It was a pre-marital counseling guide for couples, but yes, it had a chapter about sex, which was more detailed than I thought a Christian guide would be. Innocous, but detailed (Sample questions: would you like oral sex, scented candles in the bedroom, bubble baths together, etc.)

335 Historically, I recall that one interesting bit of trivia about ancient Egyptian culture was that it considered body hair of any kind to be abhorrent, and all hair was shaved or plucked regularly. All hairpieces were elaborately constructed wigs, for both men and women who were high ranking enough to afford it, and also explains why elaborate head coverings were so common. (it also made Yul Brenner the perfect actor to play Ramses)

One of the cultural reasons that the Egyptians thought the Hebrews were so disgusting was that the Hebrews not only refused to get rid of their body hair, they celebrated it and grew it as long as possible. (hence the beards)

336 Leftists seem to think, "If an urge pops into my head, it is part of my identity, so I must act upon it". That's the fundamental principle of their ethical system.

The "identity" faceting thing is so important, because they really don't know who they are. "I have had urge X, so I can be sorted with this person and these people, so I'm like them".

A lack of self-control is vital to their not collapsing into an ontological singularity.

340 I think it's being normalized via older women/young
men. How often is the response to teachers sleeping with their male
student an attaboy for the guy? It also connects with the '40 is the new
20', cougar power narrative that popular culture is cheering on. Demi
More, Sam Taylor-Wood, etc.. It's seen as OK because it's women catching
up to men dating much younger women.

------------------------------------Teacher-student...
That raises the question as to what the immediate objective is for MOST of those pushing changes to consent laws. Is it primarily to reduce the age of consent to say 15 (or even lower -- wasn't that the position taken by Milo Yxyz?) or actually the acceptance of pedophilia (with prepubescents).
Age of consent laws vary from 12 to 19 in the Western world. For example in Vatican (where homosexuality is legal but as yet still a sin) the age of consent is 12 except in cases where there is a power(?) relationship such as teacher-student or coach-player in which case the age of consent is 15. When the UK initially legalized homosexuality the age of consent set for it was 21.

There is a lot more attraction, I think, to 15 and 16 year old boys among gay men than interest in 6, 9,,, or 10 year old boys.

Yeah, in case no one has said this yet, I'm going to point it out.

It could very well be that gay men turn to the priesthood either to:
1. cure them of their urges
2. give them access to young boys

The church, being "tolerant" doesn't turn these priests away (probably illegal, and they need priests) so they just work around it.

Not non-existent.

From The Message translation.

So you are in IVF. Don't stop trying the regular way. It's still fun (but don't make it an obligation and a schedule and you have to do it right now at 1117 am or else I am going to be mad at you because then it becomes less fun. Just saying.)

I feel for you. We had similar initial results. After many rounds of disappointing IUIs and a miscarriage, we had 5 harvested. 2 viable and to our blessing. One took hold. Our 1st son is now five. Fortunately, after our 1st, we only needed IUI. Keep your chin up - I know it is hard, and I know it does not help to hear. Will keep you in our thoughts.

It is hard to give and receive advice when going through this, because it feels like nobody can relate.

So much hard to tell from this side of the glass. Be assured everything I am saying is hopeful not castigating.

IVF is "work" for a guy, too. I guess maybe it is easier to go to the drs office and ask for the tape with the 2 girls on it than, you know, have actual intimacy, for some people. (Everyone: snark off right now. And I mean Leon the Professional EVERYONE!!!!)

Maybe this is just easy for me to say from outside, but there is a level of commitment that has to be made to go through IVF - monetary, emotional, etc - even for the guy. So maybe this can be an opportunity to rekindle the fun part. Maybe.

Mostly, I say, have hope.

At the grade school level, the comedy movie "Bad Teacher" was not only funny, it was in many ways accurate, and a delightful change from the "Teacher As Selfless Martyr" movies.

I am now seeing a lovely lady who told me, bluntly, she chose teaching because she saw herself as a mommy first, and grade school teaching was/is the ultimate "mommy track" job.

An extended summer vacation is also nice.

As for higher levels, once the Left takes over an instutition, we are *driven out*. I entertained the idea of becoming a History or Poli Sci prof once, but I saw what happened to academia, and I knew I would be effectively blackballed.

That and with the largely Asian student peer crowd I was among (think "Darby O'Gill In The Land Of The Little (Asian) People" here), the rule was if you could not hack Engineering, go pre-med, and if you could not hack pre-med, go Business. I became an accountant. :-}

462 >>>434 Why would someone think shaving would be pedoesque?

1. Old people find anything new, especially sexual, to be weird. For example, old people find oral sex more intimate than vaginal, and wouldn't think of such kinky stuff until after they got bored of regular sex.

2. People want to validate their own sloth. Shaving is a hastle, like losing weight and exercise. So you must love me as I am, full pubed, fat and flabby. And if you disagree - wanting thin clean bodies in athletic shape - the problem must be in you and never me... so you are a pedo or something!

463 OK, I know I'm easily amused but I was reading Genesis 14 in Latin last night (about Abram rescuing Lot from Chedorlaomer) and Melchizedek is described as "rex Sodomorum", literally "king of the Sodomites". I was thinking Barney Frank? Lindsey Graham! Barack Obama?

Although some have identified it with Carthage, the best case I've seen identifies it with the ancient trading city of Tartessos, located in what is now southern Spain, near Gibralter.

Or that it is enjoyable for both parties. It might be for some women, but it certainly doesn't appeal to many of us.

Guys who dread getting their doctor's fingers up their butts during a physical expect women to cheerfully agree to it.

Of course, it wasn't invented yesterday - but I don't remember people talking about it as much in the 70's and '80's as they do now.

Alex is using the term of art "not even wrong". Meaning that a statement depends on things so totally unrelated to what's really going wrong that calling it "wrong" is meaningless. "Jupiter has different rings than Saturn because bears have AIDS" is both wrong in two completely different ways and "not even wrong" in the popular way that the term of art is used.

Its not so much the existence as the "anal is better" push. Just one example; in the film Kingsmen, the princess can't get the hero to help her out, she promises nookie, but then she promises even better: number 2! He's all excited and runs out to beat the bad guys. Its a running theme today: sex is great but anal is best!

I do not grok, and it does seem a bit suspicious in a culture that keeps trying to convince everyone that all guys are a little bit homo and its normal to have homosexual activity, for straight guys!

Hint: no, it isn't.

Seriously, the confluence of glorious, architect-quality drawing and the realistic yet gentle portrayal of the path along the Seine is delightful, and clearly lands on the "art" side of the line.

For those of you who prefer different art, here is something for you that should be less taxing on your artistic aesthetic.

And the French are pissing it all away. Makes me sad.

"it seems Illinois is $16 billion in the hole and still digging. No word of when they'll emerge in Beijing."

Fun fact: the city of Pekin, IL (across the Illinois River from Peoria) allegedly was so named because its 1830s era founders (mistakenly) believed that it was directly on the other side of the globe from Pekin/Peking -- the name English speaking people gave to Beijing in the 19th century. Its high school sports teams were nicknamed the Chinks up until (I think) the 1970s; now they are called the Dragons.

You might like a book called "My Name is Red" by Orhan Pamuk. It is about, among other things, a struggle in medieval Islam as to what kind of art is permitted.

There were strictures on subject matter and things had to be miniatures and our protagonist is trying to break out and do original art. It's an allegory, of course, but it's quite good.

Meh. Mostly it was only the usual suspects, plus an Imam this time. In many ways it really doesn't have a lot to do with them and it's a fool's errand. Most wanted basic stuff, procedural things. Can they catch it from the baptismal, what if they faint etc. Some were interested in ministries but I don't know to what extent.

If everyone received $10k per month, the cost of goods and services would increase astronomically,mas would revenue from taxes, so that within one or two production cycles, the money would be nearly worthless.

It would have the effect of both impoverishing the masses and exploding the size of government.

We were looking to advise residents of the following hazards on their properties that they may not have been aware of, but that pose a life safety threat: damaged structures that rendered them unsafe, unsecured pools with no barriers, electrical hazards (down lines, damaged meters) and gas hazards (damaged meters). If any of these hazards were found, our inspectors gave out a safety notice, which is neither a notice of violation warning nor a citation. That means there is no fine attached. The safety notices given to property owners identify the hazard, steps that should be taken to correct the hazard, and who to contact for additional information.

Like with Somalia, where *all* sides were muslim, except the tiny Christian minority that was wiped out, global media chose to pretend that decades of violence never happened. Their "compassion" is perfectly satisfied to let millions suffer and die if there isn't a narrative-friendly scaoegoat to pin the problems on.

Newman is delish in that photo. I met him and JoAnn Woodward a couple of times in the 1980s at Kenyon College. He is an alumnus and she was involved in the Kenyon Festival Theater, which ran out of funds after a few years because it was run by a bunch of ignorant liberals.

Posted by: Jack Sock


They were proto-Marxists, there's that. In the 20th century, as far as importing Islam goes, all of Europe has been guilty of importing it, not just them. I think the cause of most of the world's problems was Hitler. People were rightly horrified by what he did, but a lot of people who were never associated with anything Nazi felt a misplaced sense of guilt and decided that western civilization needed to be destroyed, or at least diluted. Hitler's error did not so much cause a reaction that was a *correction* as it did a reaction that was simply another error, equally as bad.

242 This is one lovely, pleasant work of art. The level of detail in the spires and other stonework is intriguing. The brown and tan earth colors against the muted blue of the sky is relaxing but not dull. There is activity in the figures but no sense of a frenetic pace. As I said, it is pleasant and simply nice to view.

249 The comment track on the Slapshot DVD is done by the Hanson brothers. They hardly talk about the movie, or movie-making, and mostly about who could skate. Some of the actors couldn't skate at all and were shot from the knees up. The various goons from the other teams were actual minor league hockey players.

Michael Ontkean played for UNH, so he could skate, and apparently hated the Hansons as much as his character did.

A lot of our common understanding of history comes from people celebrating or defending and even justifying atrocities carried out.

History is never that simple, and any history of the French Catholic church that rests on the narrative spun by the Jacobins and their adherents should be suspected from word one.
Most of the histories of the Catholic church in Europe are heavily flavored by various pissing from socialists through the last 200 years. Actually the last 500 years including the hatchet jobs starting during the reformation.

Just to point out that these histories have an odd odor at times.

Then the reply, which now includes my brother says no, no one got hacked, John is a lieing (spelled wrong) cheater. Plain and simple. I was dualy (spelled wrong) informed in detail last night.

307 Why not emigrate Hindus? Or non-Muslim Africans or Asians, if they want to "prove" how much they love diversity and multiculturalism?

The simple and damning answer is that that would be multiculturalism without a goal, and therefore pointless. Their lips say they want multiculturalism, but it is something they reject out of hand unless they are getting something for it.

Promotion of strife against their political enemies, depredation thereof, and alignment of global politics is one such aim, getting everything they want cheaply is another.

It is clearly *not* an intrinsic good as borne out by their actions. Like everything else, a lie to cover malign intent.

Instapundit linked an article after Harvey about whether L.A. could learn anything from the rescue response that could be applied to earthquakes. The author was, probably legitimately, concerned about the lack of "social capital" in California cities, but I think it goes beyond that. With flooding the water goes away again eventually, in fact I was astounded at how fast it went away everywhere but the dam release areas, but that doesn't happen with earthquakes. You are also right that the advance notice, so that the assistance is available to roll in the instant it's safe to do so, is a big deal as well.

Oswald Spengler, "Decline of the West", 1912. He saw it while it was just beginning, explained why it was happening, and predicted in detail how it would unfold over the next couple of centuries. Everyone in academia hates his work, and has little good to say about it - because he was right, and because everything that has happened over the last century has proven him right.

He was one of the first I know of to say, in a convincing and well reasoned argument, that the Islamic cultures were mortal enemies of western culture and would always seek to destroy it, until one or the other was finally gone. He also said that this was not really about religion at all, except to the extent that religion reflects culture, but was due to the way that Islamic Culture at its core was created to be the antithesis of Western Culture, and always would be. It is a conflict that can never resolved except by death. (see why everyone hates him?)

In their clownish attempt to prevent misguided national sentiment from enacting horrors, and to ensure the priority of interpersonal care, they've eroded shared English comity, brought about a forced loyalty to tumors on the state in the form of the NHS and BBC, and nearly eliminated intrapersonal fellow-feeling and connection to the past and tradition.

The exact conditions for a Weimar-style revolution and socialist takeove by mere lip service to something better and tradition. Irony, a bit of it.

The Morning Report 9/20/17

TrumpUN.jpg

Good morning kids. Midweek and above the fold, as Hurricane Maria bears down on Puerto Rico a 7.1 earthquake has rocked Mexico and there are reports of a 6.1 quake hitting New Zealand. Prayers for the victims and if you are on or near Puerto Rico, the governor has said "get out or die." Words to live by; literally.

The big story is President Trump's address to the U.N. General Assembly. For me, it was the most incredible and perhaps significant speech given by an American president at least since Ronald Reagan and perhaps ever. It pulled no punches, had memorable lines and most importantly, it was the pure and unvarnished truth. For me, most significantly was the long overdue public indictment of totalitarian socialism and communism laid at the feet of the criminals, thugs and tyrants still enslaving and destroying the lives of a good portion of the 6+ billion human beings on this planet. If nothing else, this is why I am so grateful that he is president.

In other news, Paul Manafort is up in arms and calling for the DoJ to go after the Obama administration and I assume James Comey for what amounts to thuggery and political persecution that makes Watergate look like a grade school kid boosting a pack of gum at the candy store. Meanwhile, as Trump dazzles at the UN, former national savior and pick for ambassador to Russia, John Huntsman, is pushing the Russia stole the election meme. Sheesh.

The GOP effort to get the Obamacare Repeal/Replace block grant scheme is gaining steam but the big question is will the usual gang of scum and "goniffs" vote to screw the American people (I'm looking at McStain and Murkowski in particular)?

Meanwhile, Jeanne "shabeen" Shaheen sez that Nancy Pelosi was the victim of, get this, Russian agents at that hijacked press conference. Make mine a borscht burrito, please. Keep plucking that pierogi, toots.

Lastly, there is a fine essay about the potential railroading of Officer Daniel Pantaleo in the Eric "Loosie" Garner case. I recommend. Anyway, as always, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

I have a feeling that there never will be a last chapter. The corruption is so vast and all-encompassing, that to reveal it entirely would be the end of the republic. That's why republicans are dragging their heels and merely conducting hearing after hearing after hearing and the FBI and DOJ will never ever indict anyone. Nothing will ever be resolved.

That was one of the reasons why it was so infuriating that they were deliberately letting Central American illegals through their southern border during the Zero administration, but only on the condition that they immediately exit Mexico into the U.S. -- because Mexico didn't want its taxpayers burdened with having to take care of these unskilled, uneducated, welfare-seeking illegal aliens from Central America, but they were more than happy to help dump them on us gringos in the U.S.

156 First off - Happy belated anniversary JJ.

Now - on to hurricane and earthquake matters - is this the point where SJWs show up to point out that Puerto Rico and Mexico "deserve it" for voting for a Trump? Oh yeah - never mind.

Always found that amazing that anyone would do stuff like that- I don't ever recall any conservatives doing any such thing - not like the Left does.

Oh well - Moar coffee!

In the end, it's the only method of passing national law (Constitutional Amendments, at that) which does an end-run around DC.

While the potential for abuse exists, getting all of the state legislatures to ratify something abusive would be a hell of a trick, and even if it were done, it could be repealed by the same method (as with Prohibition, Amendments can be repealed by other Amendments.)

Not true. As of yet, there is no requirement that any citizen carry ID, nor to present it just because you are asked for it. However, you may be required to provide your name (and address) under certain circumstances --

All nine justices agreed that a person who is not behaving in a way that gives rise to an articulable suspicion of criminality may not be required to state his name or show identification. All nine justices also agreed that under the Court's prior precedents, the police could ask a person who has been subject to a Terry stop for his name.

At this point meuller is going to indict someone and when that happens Trumps needs to pardon him and close up meuller and his shop.

Example...

Did you hear what Trump said at the UN?

No, what did he say.

He said he was gonna nuke North Korea.

Wait, what he said he was gonna nuke them? That's crazy! When are we supposed to launch the missiles?

Well, he didn't say he was nuking them right now, but he warned them if they keep test firing missiles and threatening our allies he will nuke them.

Well, I kind of agree with that. I mean we can't let them shoot missiles at us. Seriously though, he said he would nuke them?

Well, I don't think he said nuke them. But he said he would obliterate them.

Oh, well that's not what you said earlier. I guess I probably agree with him. I mean if they threaten our allies we are supposed to defend them aren't we?

246 That really was quite a good article by Caroline Glick (I enjoy her writing) over at FrontPage. The problem of identity crisis in Judaism is also true, IMO of Christianity. Half my family is Jewish. Some of parents born in the 1920's attended temple. Their children did not or stopped after Bar Mitzvah. Their identityis simply culturally Jewish. Sometimes they will have the foods for the holidays, but there's no belief in God and a Jewish identity behind it. They have no real investment in the State of Israel although they'd like it to exist. My Jewish family consists of very successful people, doctors, academics, businessman. Their education was valued. However, they are completely and thoroughly progressive-that is their religion. No wonder why Chabad is growing, They stand for something, emphasize the beauty of the religion and the importance of the family. They believe in God and pray-What a concept! They talk about disciplined devotional practices. This is similar to Christianity in that if it doesn't stand for fundamental Christian beliefs the church becomes what my friend, a retired pastor calls "The Church version of a rotary club".

254 As I wrote/quoted last night Huntsman is right just not right the way everybody, including Huntsman?, thinks.

"During Mr. Browder's testimony the origin of the Fusion GPS 'Russian
Dossier' was discussed. Browder stated the Russian government actually
paid Fusion GPS to create the Steele propaganda dossier on candidate
Donald Trump. That same dossier was used by the FBI in June/July 2016 to
generate the FISA surveillance warrants against the Trump campaign.

FBI
Director James Comey was using propaganda commissioned by Russia,
funded in part by the FBI, to attack Trump, as the framework to launch
his FBI investigation into candidate Donald Trump and Russian collusion.

Expanding
the reality from that testimony. This means the Russian collusion
narrative the U.S. media has been running with for a year to attack
Trump, was actually factual collusion between Russia and the the U.S.
FBI, via James Comey."

The Russian interference was to spread disinformation/confusion into the election and heighten distrust of Americans of their electoral process and their government. Who it helped or hurt was secondary to that goal.

One of the 9-11 commission's "fixes" WAS a common national ID requirement. And they have passed a law for that but it has not been implemented because the bureaucratic requirements of the law and record-keeping are hugely expensive and no funds have been provided to the State to help with it. Add to that the fact that the Democrats hate it and you see why it is not being implemented.

But there is still a difference between almost mandatory, and actually mandatory.
***********

Vic, I looked at that graphic on states with stop and identify laws, and then went to the source wiki:

"Stop and identify" statutes are statutory laws in the United States that authorize police[1] to legally obtain the identification of someone whom they reasonably suspect of having committed a crime. If there is no reasonable suspicion that a crime has been committed, is being committed, or is about to be committed, an individual is not required to provide identification, even in "Stop and ID" states.

302 Still on the loose-

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4) - Police are searching for a woman who has been seen repeatedly defecating in a neighborhood while out running.

Cathy Budde says her kids saw the woman mid-squat and came running back in the house to tell her.

...

Budde says the runner is doing it in her neighborhood at least once a week for the last seven weeks, so they nicknamed her "The Mad Pooper."

"Two other times we've caught her - caught her yesterday - she changed up her time a little bit because she knew I was watching."

I live near Detroit and all summer we were bombarded with commercials about how many children will go hungry now that school is out. The mothers of these children ( very few have mothers and fathers) are getting year round food stamps, so I think that rather than putting all of this effort on getting the community to supplement food for the. Hildren, if even a small effort was focused on teaching parenting and budgeting skills, progress could be made.

337 >>...if even a small effort was focused on teaching parenting and budgeting skills, progress could be made.


We have a big food bank in Denver that provides all sorts of free classes on healthy food prep, buying foods that can be stretched to provide several meals (bags of beans and rice vs. prepared meal from 7-11), budgeting so you don;t run out f food before the end of the month, etc..It is a fabulous organization that employs only one full-time staff person - all of the rest is done via volunteers. They have all sorts of ways to get supplies, such as working w/post office to take the undeliverable baby formula samples that co.'s send to new moms, unused soap/shampoo/tp from hotels and so on. They're eliminating wastes as well as helping the city's homeless and poor.

So, this is happening via private charity. Meanwhile, the government is undercutting that message by insisting on feeding the children 2-3 meals a day 365 days a year AND providing SNAP funds for additional food purchasing (wink, wink).

Nope. They completely accepted that it was mine, and that it was totally legit, but, not acceptable as ID. Why? Because it had expired.

Bureaucracies are mindless machines.

I went through a similar thing with Social Security and a birth certificate. They would not accept the original certificate as ID, because the law says that a certified copy must be presented.

We were in Poland at the time, and sitting in church after the election. The "pastor" began his sermon with a picture of Bush, whom he called a bad man who hated minorities, and then showed a picture of Obama, who he said was a good man. The "pastor" was from New Zealand, with a Russian wife. (Coincidence? I think not!) Anyway, we stood up, said thank you and good bye, and didn't return. The lay chairman of the congregation called to ask why we weren't coming, and we told him. He brushed it off, with "he's got a right to his opinion." And so do we, brother. So do we.

383 Low level bureacrats are always the worst. They have to operate in a climate of mind-crushing stupidity, so they see no reason why you, a normal person, shouldn't have to take a big bite of the $hit sandwich. Part of it is the transition to a management or leadership structure (lack thereof) where no discretion or judgment is allowed. Initiative is punished. Unqualified people are placed in positions they have no place. Consequently there is no reason to use good common sense. Follow the "rules", watch your back - someone is watching! And they'll snitch.

everything our family has gone through. He's certainly been listening to
people as a minister for quite a long time. However, he tends to
monopolize the conversation and make it about his plans and successes.
So, does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can say to annoy him
regarding growth in the church which I serve-that sounds plausible.

Oh, I don't think he's competitive about church size particularly-He's competitive about everything. As with many ministers, we struggle with doing things for our own glory as opposed to the glory of God. I mean, if you're you're convinced you're doing things only for the glory of God you might not be-if you know what i mean. My friend had such an unhappy young life-which he doesn't talk about much-I've just picked that up from hearing him preach or reading some sort of transparent parts in his newsletters-that because he didn't get nurturing as a kid he now needs people to acclaim him. Narcissists are often very talented and hard working people.

406 Heh. My last ticket, the first in awhile, was from the following...

I turn onto a two lane road. Up ahead a cop had pulled someone over and was kind of angled out a little (I'm told they do this so if the cop car gets rear ended the car won't hit the cop standing outside). Nothing unusual, really. OK. So I slow down and pass the two cars.

The cop car IMMEDIATELY pulls out and pulls me over. Said he was stopping traffic to let the car he stopped pull out and I was in trouble. WTF?

I first try the nice approach...Gee, officer, it wasn't clear that's what you were doing because you were behind the other car and didn't have the lane blocked or anything. He said I should have known and he will ticket me. I snark a little and say that he's really reaching for that violation, so it must be the end of the month. Yeah, I was getting a ticket anyway so fuck him.

What was funny was that he intentionally put one court appearance date on the ticket itself, but in the computer system he put in an earlier date. I caught it because I went in the online system after a couple of days and saw that I was supposedly due in court in two days instead of six weeks. Fucker. I called the court and they fixed it.

36 Since I conjured the ONT's appearance (thanks as ever MisHum), I'll re-post this from the end of the last thread -

No, "illegal alien" is better. Foreign national is correct, but ambiguous, since one can have legal status, or not.

blaster
I'm almost allowing myself to believe that the Mueller idiocy will
indeed blow up, to encompass the astounding surveillance story. Almost.

But
recall: there is no press, there is barely a GOP/WH "party" in the
Beltway, the judiciary (and most of DOJ) are not professional, have no
integrity, and get to play to an unbelievably dumbed-down populace (the
only sort that wouldn't laugh/jeer the whole Mueller investigation
concept into oblivion from the get-go).

Oh, Sessions mumbling and
mewling in Portlandia about "sanctuary" crap. I am at the point where I
think nobody in the administration actually understands how the
government works, how appropriations work, how Congress exercises its
control over policy. And they are pretty dim, or don't care, about their
immigration/rule of law agenda. Because they've done almost nothing
about it, despite many tools sitting there on the table in front of
them, and the political wind (more like a gale) at their back.

61 Baby Sister Update

From her good friend Roni:

"So, Joyce has been calling me daily to check up on ME! I stopped over for a short visit and amazingly, Joyce was able to get herself up from the sofa and walk me to the door as I left. She is complaining a little bit more about her peripheral vision, so they will mention this to the doctor tomorrow. She has a new raised toilet seat in her bathroom which is making her life easier. She is very upbeat!"

[To my fellow Hordelings, thank you all in advance for your prayers and well-wishes for my sister and her family]

You see, we had phonographs and headphones so you could listen without disturbing others.
Until the solo came on of course. That's when the table would magically turn into a 9 piece drum kit.

She was very sweet about it to be sure. And always complimentary when I played with the stage band at school functions.

1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups milk
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted

Into a bowl sift together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. In a small bowl beat together milk and egg; stir in butter. Add to dry ingredients and stir just until moistened (batter will be lumpy). Using 1/4 cup measure, pour batter onto ungreased griddle. Bake until top is bubbly and edges baked. Tum and bake other side. Serve at once with butter and syrup.

The first season can be a bit rough, but all the ideas were there. The show was one of the few that really got a lot better as it went along- crazy and dark, but much better story telling, dialogue and acting.

Constellation of Doubt and La Bomba from season 4 are two of my favorites.

"Posted by: rhomboid at September 19, 2017 10:06 PM (QDnY+)"


This, with Comey and the entire DNC/MSM et al, is the most far reaching case of projection I think I've ever seen.

"During Mr. Browder's testimony the origin of the Fusion GPS 'Russian Dossier' was discussed. Browder stated the Russian government actually paid Fusion GPS to create the Steele propaganda dossier on candidate Donald Trump. That same dossier was used by the FBI in June/July 2016 to generate the FISA surveillance warrants against the Trump campaign.

FBI Director James Comey was using propaganda commissioned by Russia, funded in part by the FBI, to attack Trump, as the framework to launch his FBI investigation into candidate Donald Trump and Russian collusion.

Expanding the reality from that testimony. This means the Russian collusion narrative the U.S. media has been running with for a year to attack Trump, was actually factual collusion between Russia and the the U.S. FBI, via James Comey."

No, Trump wouldn't be impeached for it. He'd look like the strong horse.

Why Moreena Baccrin doesn't show up on top 10 most beautiful lists is criminal. Then again, I don't pay attention to that shit so maybe she has.

206 CBD should visit Wal-Mart to view some 'art' they have.

For Halloween movies like Young Frankenstein, Jennifer's Body, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, Child's Play, Black Swan, Killer Klowns from Outer Space, and Poltergeist have gotten some special covers.

The artist is Orlando Arocena. And they all look like Mexican Day of the Dead art done while on LSD.

Young Frankenstein on Blu-Ray is $7. DVDs are $5. And each copy comes with a coloring book of the art.

293 Not for everyone but I really like buckwheat pancakes, made with buttermilk. The way I make them is closer to a crepe. Just substitute buckwheat flour for regular flour or do half and half. The rest of the recipe is the same.

They are supposed to be somewhat healthier but I eat them for the taste.

NO PEANUT BUTTER!

They also go great with crispy bacon and/or GOOD sausage patties.

Not for everyone but I really like buckwheat pancakes, made with
buttermilk. The way I make them is closer to a crepe. Just substitute
buckwheat flour for regular flour or do half and half. The rest of the
recipe is the same.



They are supposed to be somewhat healthier but I eat them for the taste.



NO PEANUT BUTTER!



They also go great with crispy bacon and/or GOOD sausage patties.

I like them and I hate them.

Nothing leaves you feeling emptier, more quickly than a big pancake breakfast.

The high is great, but coming down off of them is too much.
So, I rarely indulge.

Man, there is a place here that has the most amazing gravy and the most god-awful biscuits. It's a sin.

Luckily, the counter girl has an exemplary ass. And if you order a double americano, you get to watch her walk back to the counter after she delivers it to your table...

336 One other pancake point: the syrup should be warm. Also, if REAL maple syrup is not available (yes, such horrors do happen) warm some honey until it has the consistency of warm syrup and stir in a bit of cinnamon. Much as I love maple syrup, I hate to think of all those bees laboring for nothing.

354 I like pancakes OK. Prefer waffles. Whenever I eat breakfast out, however, I never order pancakes, or waffles, or French toast. It's always an omelet or a scramble or something eggy, sometimes with bacon or sausage if included, but always with potatoes of some sort.

Cooking at home, it's usually Belgian waffles or Dutch pancakes (sounds similar to Swedish pancakes mentioned upthread), passed on from my mom. Slop some butter on 'em, sprinkle with granulated sugar, roll 'em up and eat 'em.

That tank top look really gets me going somehow (well, there's a lot of things that get me going -- might be better to just list things that don't get me going).

Basically, a skimpy little tank top like that (in a cold ambient temp, of course) and not much else. Maybe flip flops, or little cute footie sockie thingies, whatever you call 'em.

358 When I was a kid, it was a big deal to go someplace for breakfast like Country Kitchen, because they had syrups other than maple.

Such as boysenberry, raspberry and strawberry. I liked 'em but always thought the colors made the cakes look strange, especially the strawberry, which looked a bit too much like blood IMHO. ;-)
