Politico: 12 Different Political/Economic Models of Voter Behavior Predict a Trump Victory in 2020, and Not a Small One



President Donald Trump has a low approval rating. He is engaging in bitter Twitter wars and facing metastasizing investigations.

But if the election were held today, he’d likely ride to a second term in a huge landslide, according to multiple economic models with strong track records of picking presidential winners and losses.

Credit a strong U.S. economy featuring low unemployment, rising wages and low gas prices -- along with the historic advantage held by incumbent presidents.

...

"The economy is just so damn strong right now and by all historic precedent the incumbent should run away with it," said Donald Luskin, chief investment officer of TrendMacrolytics, a research firm whose model correctly predicted Trump’s 2016 win when most opinion polls did not. "I just don't see how the blue wall could resist all that."

...

"Even if you have a mediocre but not great economy -- and that's more or less consensus for between now and the election -- that has a Trump victory and by a not-trivial margin," winning 54 percent of the popular vote to 46 for the Democrat, he said. Fair's model also predicted a Trump win in 2016 though it missed on Trump's share of the popular vote.

15 This doesn't make me any less nervous. Trump is a black swan. Historical models, even when accurate, often don't apply to 6+ sigma events like Trump was and remains because black swans confound most models.

"Conventional wisdom" applied little in 2016, and the only prediction I feel comfortable making is that it will continue to apply little in 2020.

28 I'm gonna be Ee-yore on this because my pessimism is my armor; but the fact is Trump won in 2016 because turnout was relatively low and his opponent had all the appeal of a root canal.

The Democrats learned in 2018 the power of a fully operational turnout and fraud machine. And the GOP, which doesn't like Trump anyway, will be standing around with their dicks in their hands, as per usual, while the Democrats field a few million Soros-funded "volunteers" to harvest every loose ballot like a cocaine addict looking for flakes in the bathroom tile.

The Democrats have as part of their platform:

- Jew hatred
- infanticide
- support for Hamas
- no US borders
- abolition of the ICE agency
- shitty schools
- giving illegal immigrants greater rights than US citizens
- more infanticide
- weird sex and gender bullshit
- pederasty and NAMBLA support
- drag kids parading their ass in gay bars
- Communism
- AOC
- media corruption
- censorship
- hatred of the military
- constant war
- this idiot Beto
- destruction of free speech on college campuses
- blacklisting conservatives from education and employment

So, the Dems are moving way to the left, and the media is going along with them.

This is another factor. I said in #15 that I am suspicious of "conventional wisdom" in 2020 because Trump is a black swan. This is another one. The Dems have become completely unglued and desperate and, unlike the RNC, they spent 2018 learning what they can get away with.

Desperate people, though, don't usually walk up to the line - they cross it. Depending on how they cross it, that could easily land us in black swan-type territory, too, on the other side.

Trust nothing in 2020. Don't trust the models, don't trust the polls, don't trust the commentary. Throw it all out. This is not the same game, and the same rules can't be used to predict its outcome. Go campaign and vote and keep hawk-like eyes on potential corruption and do what you can to publicize it it. Beyond that, I got nothin'.

If I were a voter in a traditional Democrat state that comprises their "blue wall," I'd be pissed. If I were a Democrat, I'd be pissed that they take my vote and me for granted in their machine. If I were a Republican, I'd be pissed that they don't really give one whit about my state or me because they take it for granted.

The "blue wall" crap is deeply offensive to anyone with a brain. There are rotten boroughs like California, but most of the "blue wall" states aren't gimmies.

76 I have a pretty solid record on predicting Presidential elections. All else being equal, I don't really see a "path to victory" for any of the flotsam and jetsam in this Dem field this year.

That said - everything hinges on aggressively tamping down fraud efforts in places like PA, WI, MI, GA, FL, etc.

Those places where the fraud machine is going to be cranked up to 11.

I haven't seen any inclination by Trump to prepare for this. Hopefully, there are preparations, and it's just being done quietly, to avoid the shrieks of "rayyyyycism." I can't imagine he doesn't see this coming a mile away.

The first point, full of imputation, means nothing. His "twitter wars" are in fact an asset for him. The "bitter" is a lazy adjective also meaningless.

"Metastasizing investigations" is vacuous and self-referential term. First, who's "metastasizing" them? and second, metastasizing zero equals less than zero (i.e., more damaging to the investigators than the investigated.)

The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

"White Nationalism" is what Orwell warned us about. Do not let the Left take control of the language and the terms, because that is their first step in the totalitarian dance, and they know the moves and music very well.

If there is any one phrase to describe it, perhaps "American Nationalism" is appropriate, because the melting pot concept is one that is tried and true and helped to create the greatest economic engine in history, and one that worked quite well for a very long time.

There are plenty of 6th generation Americans who can trace their lineage to Mexico, and there are plenty of 2nd and 3rd generation Americans who can trace their lineage to pretty much anywhere in the world...and that's great! But the operative word is "American." Assimilate, embrace our political institutions and Exceptionalism, and presto...instant American.

And that is "American Nationalism." It is not color...it is love of country. But I guess that's too simple a definition for some.

The Modern Miracle of Air-Conditioning

temperature and humidity have a strong influence on labor productivity. For example, in machine shops, labor productivity is at its peak at 65 degrees Fahrenheit with humidity between 65 and 75 percent. Productivity is 15 percent lower at 75 degrees Fahrenheit and 28 percent lower at 86 degrees Fahrenheit. Moreover, accident rates are 30 percent higher at 77 degrees Fahrenheit than at 67 degrees Fahrenheit.

Peanut Tillman Is Building A Row Boat With His Bare Hands and Sailing It Across Lake Michigan For Pediatric Charities
Tillman won't be making the trek by himself. He's teaming up with a tech executive named Jacob Beckley, who has rowed across Lake Michigan before but vowed to never do it again. Tillman had to convince Beckley to go through the whole ordeal a second time.

As for building the boat, well, that was done to cut down on costs. In order to buy a boat appropriate for rowing across Lake Michigan, the two would have had to pay $80,000.

A Tara Ross TweetStorm that is very much worth reading.
I’m not big on Tweetstorms, but I suppose if I am ever going to do one, now is the time. #ElectoralCollege. Been studying it since 2001. Yesterday, E. Warren came out against the E.C., as you’ve prob. heard /1

She said: “My view is that every vote matters and the way we can make that happen is that we can have national voting and that means get rid of the electoral college -- and every vote counts.” The audience broke out in applause. /2

Well, no wonder. Most have spent a lifetime hearing that the #ElectoralCollege is evil (slavery) & outdated (we have airplanes/Internet now!). None of it's true, but people have heard it so often that they simply don't know. Here is the truth: /3

The Founders created the #ElectoralCollege because they knew several things we have forgotten: (1) Simple democracies are dangerous. Bare or emotional majorities can tyrannize even large minority groups. Two wolves & a sheep voting on what’s for dinner is not a good system. /4

(2) They understood: Humans fallible. Power corrupts. Ambition, selfishness, greed are dangers. Some claim Founders were elitists who didn’t trust the people. NO. They didn’t trust ANYONE. Not the people, not elected officials, not states or feds. Checks & balances on EVERYONE /5

Carol Berkin states this wonderfully, noting that delegates to Const’l Convention were the most likely men to be elected to 1st Senate or as 1st President….. Yet they still sat and debated how to put checks and balances on those offices bc THEY DIDN’T TRUST THEMSELVES either. /6

#ElectoralCollege serves us well: It has several benefits that go unrecognized: 1st: It makes it harder to steal elections. Can’t steal election unless you steal votes in right state @ right time AND national election fairly close. /7

With a National Popular Vote system, obviously, any vote stolen anywhere affects national outcome. This is true even if the vote is easily stolen in a very safe blue or red state. This is a dangerous situation that the #ElectoralCollege protects us from today. /8

2nd, the #ElectoralCollege rewards coalition-building. Perhaps that sounds weird, after 2016? But NO ONE focused on coalition building that yr, not really. The result? A close election: One party lost. The other mostly avoided losing. But, yes, there was a coalition. & it won. /9

Coalition that won in 2016 = group of voters who are tired of being ruled by DC elites. They don’t feel heard. They see DC insiders living by one set of rules while we live by another. They are tired of being told what to think. Tired of being called names simply bc disagree /10

Some of this coalition voted for Trump enthusiastically. Some held noses & voted. But the coalition all agreed he was most likely to upset status quo in D.C. So they voted for him. Right now, Dems are very focused on eliminating #ElectoralCollege that caused them to lose /11

Better off focusing on why they lost in first place. How can Dems reach out to those who have been feeling ignored? How can they find middle ground? How can they focus on things that bring us together instead of things that drive us apart? How can they regain voters’ trust? /12

How can they run campaign more like FDR? If Dems find that nominee, they will win in a landslide. Similarly, Rs don’t have to be stuck in world where barely win. They, too, should find middle ground. How can they build coalitions? Earn trust? Reward = Reagan-like landslide /13

I wish that everyone would quit going off into their partisan corners. Quit pointing fingers at the other side. Quit blaming #ElectoralCollege for your party’s own failures. What did your own party do wrong or right in 2016? /14

1st party to take hard look inward & fix its own flaws will start winning again. In landslides. We’ve been here before. Aftr Civil War, country was sharply divided bw North & South. Because of #ElectoralCollege, both political parties were forced to move past that division /15

Pretty much whether they wanted to or not! Dems in South simply couldn’t win w/o reaching a hand across the aisle. Rs could win in reliance on their safe areas, but just barely. Both sides had incentives to look at own mistakes, figure out how to build better coalitions. /16

By the 1930s, of course, Dems were winning in repeated landslides. The lesson? Remember that we live in a big, diverse country! Don’t force people into one-size-fits-all thinking. THAT is the lesson the #ElectoralCollege has taught over and over again, throughout our history. /17

Getting rid of the system now, when we are so angry and divided…. Well, it’s the worst possible solution. We’ll be stuck in this angry place forever. We are better off trying to remember why we have the #ElectoralCollege in first place. End of tweetstorm. /18

But mostly, the electoral college was put in because the Founders were building a FEDERAL government, not a national one - a federation of sovereign STATES.

America doesn't do national referenda ... or national anything - which is a good part of why Barky's idiotic and un-American "national petition to the King President" idea was so un-American ... even apart from the fact that it made pretend that the Executive branch does anything it wants to do.

America is a federation of individual states. We have no "national" government. That is how this nation was built.

They know it. When I was in high school, the "social studies" ("civics" is for worn-out old folks) teachers were pushing a new line I never heard before and have rarely heard since because it was stupid and lacked brand power.

They were talking about the "melting pot" concept that the old (read: regressive) leadership pursued with assimilation, etc. with a focus on the industrial assimilation efforts from the likes of Henry Ford. Then they talked about the progressive, better, new way we do it now called the "salad bowl" where groups live together in the country but remain distinct and keep most or all of their cultural proclivities.

There is another word for this, of course: Balkanization. The trouble is, that word has a negative connotation for very good reasons. The "salad bowl" sounds better, fresher, healthier. Bah.

39 FLT: 399 340 Stupid question but why didn't this guy immediately start screaming that they needed to ground these death traps?

I'm sure we'll find out that he did report the incident. (Trying to think, is there any conceivable way of running an airline where you wouldn't report that? I don't know)"

The Dallas Morning News has reported that there were at least 5 American Airlines pilots calling for the new 737's to be grounded before the last crash, for these exact same reasons, and that Boeing, and the FAA, and their own management dismissed their warnings as unverified. (or something)

It reminds me of the Challenger Space Shuttle crash, where the team that built the boosters was screaming "don't launch! don't launch!" and Nasa said "aw what are you scared of, ya big babies."

40 I was pushing "Americanism" before Trump adopted it. It is a unique form of nationalism, as our founders put individual liberty ahead of government. "Inalienable Rights" from God.


This is unique in the world, afaik. It was formed mostly by WASPs, but was certainly not based in race or ethnicity (except to the extent they were mostly WASPy looking to escape tyranny ... from other WASPs)

The "melting pot" concept is good in most ways, but the current trend is toward building the globalist class by inviting the world, not to melt in, but to divide us and conquer us, on behalf the new world order globalists. (who are anti-American, anti-sovereign state).


Americanism works better for me, leaving out the "nationalism" part, which in many nations, is commie or totalitarian, or class based, or hate based. One nation under God ... rather unique, with our bill of rights and all.

Where are they rowing from?

Muskegon to Chicago?

Luddington to Green Bay?

Lake Michigan is frikkin' cold most of the year, and a big way could easily capsize a boat, and end up killing the rowers with hypothermia in about 10 -15 minutes. I would assume they would wear wet suits, unless it is a blazing hot day (water still cold).

The boat has to be able to resist capsizing easily, and probably has to be able to be covered at times. This isn't about a 12 foot dory that you can row.

Radio gear, flashing indicator lights, etc.


But again, there are no sharks in Lake Michigan, and it is salt free.

I *do* hate her. I have more enmity for her than for most politicians. The reason for this is that she *is* smart. The is very smart. Her earlier work on financial and economic matters was extremely lucid. I didn't like some of her suggestions for fixing problems (she is a Dem, after all), but she was cogent and able to identify a lot of the structural problems. Her analysis was generally good.

That she then went on to be the chief architect of the extortion and power scheme called the CFPB, her hardcore Socialism, etc. cannot be attributed to foolishness or naivete. She let the cat out of the bag before doing those things. No, her behavior can be contributed only to actual malice.

I wish she were stupid. She's not. She's evil.

62 The push by Dems for no Electoral College is simple to understand, and she touches on it in her tweetstorm - if there is no EC, then they can have California turn in 40 million votes for the Dem (who cares how they count them) and have New York turn in 30 million votes for the Dem (again, who cares how) and with 70 million "popular votes", nothing done in the other 48 states will even matter, they will have picked the President.

Probably the only way to combat this will be for Texas to report umpty-million votes for their candidate.

Anyway, none of the versions of Jamming with Edward available for purchase include Memo from Turner. The wiki article listing every recording of Memo from Turner does not place it on Jamming with Edward. There is absolutely no evidence that the song was ever on that album.

It wasn't supposed to progress that far. Intersectionality's purpose is just to divide people into fractious tribes that would be at each other's throats over small slights, until society destabilised, creating a national emergency.

That's why Hillary losing screwed them. She was supposed to be the one to start throwing her weight around "for the duration of the crisis".

I really liked that graphic, missed commenting on it at the time. Here's some real geeky science trivia - starting on the east coast near DC, you can trace a "J" shape running down through the south and then hooking back up through Mississippi and into Arkansas. The reason is because those are the counties that are the best black-dirt farmland throughout the south, and they have a very high percentage of Black voters for historical reason, and it's known as the "Black Belt", originally for its soil but also for its voters.

And the reason that the good farmland is located in a shape like that, is because that is roughly where the shoreline of North America was located in the Cretaceous, back when T Rex roamed the land. Look at the map that way, and you can see it.

++++++++++
Also, people wanting to dismiss the electoral college misunderstand (either deliberately or because they're ignorant) the structure of US power. There are lots of nice, practical consequences to the EC system, many of which were well discussed in the tweet storm.

The US, though, is a federal union of individual states. Power is devolved to the Federal *from* the States - not the other way around. The reservoir of power is within the states, not the central government. The Electoral College is one of key parts of ensuring that devolution of power to the executive comes from the source of executive power, which are the states.

This same concept is why the direct elections of senators was such a bad idea. The people were supposed to have one house (the people being the source of state power) to directly represent them in the federal, and the sates were supposed to have one house (the upper house, as it were) to maintain state interests within the federal. Now the people have two houses and the states - the source of federal power - have none.

If you do not assimilate and tear down any markers of your culture and religion, and humbly allow other cultures to supplant yours, you will be demonized.

107 Civic Nationalism is a wonderful ideal and it warms my heart. It sounds great. It feels even better. It inspires, it leads, and makes everyone into one.

But it's a heartbreaking lie. A Nation is a People, it's not a political entity that's called a State, it's not a land that's called a country, its not a belief system that's called an ideology. And not a State issued piece of paper that says "Yuo iz duh citizen Mr.Chungus"

It's in the root of the Latin word for Nation. By birth, breed, stock, tribe. Blood.
It's in the Constitution "Our Posterity". For God's sake it's in the Bible - bringing all nations and assimilating them into one is literally the Evil of The Tower of Babel.

I wish it wasn't so, but I can't live the lie anymore. Taking an ideology and declaring that "This Ideology shall henceforth be a Nation instead" and backing it with the force of government doesn't make it so anymore that calling a man a woman or a dog a cat.

A nation is a people.
A belief system is an ideology.
A political entity is a state.
A citizenship is a piece of paper issued by a state.

Although I did not experience this, an example of this melting pot I have heard about is Thanksgiving. You would see all kinds of immigrants that would bring their native dishes to the table but they and their kids also demanded Turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce. They wanted to keep some of their cultural heritage, but they came all this way to be Americans!

As long as the EC is in place, the fraud is much, much harder to make work.

141 "intersectionality" gives points for every anti- (traditional) American trait. That is all it is.

Diversity and multi-culturalism are their other terms intended to divide. Diverse trumps superior quality. We have to hire diverse people, not the most qualified people.


But when the minority becomes over represented ... (as with government hiring, school admissions) ... then "minority" trumps diversity. It is a one way street, always against traditional America. And fully backed by the conquered (by the commie march) institutions ... news, Hollywood, schools .. and now even banking and especially internet giant corporations.

Disagree. We'll always be stuck in an "angry place forever" because leftism is a genetic defect that will keep recurring in the human population, like near sightedness or mental retardation. There will always be a segment of the population who, when confronted with some wide spread problem, will always think "The solution is government coercion!", and they'll lack beliefs in moral rules that apply to everyone, so they'll always be willing to redefine words and engage in hypocrisy in order to achieve their results, since they value pragmatism above moral behavior, even if their method never even gives them the pragmatic results they want.

Most if not all modern ethnic groups are the result of blending several different groups together - the English most notably, but the Scottish (Irish/Scotti, Picts, Angles, Norse), French (multiple Gaulish tribes, Romans, Franks), Italians (Lets see - Eutruscans, Samnites, Romani, Greeks, Gauls, Germans, Norman-French, Arabs, eggplants...), Germans (multiple once separate and distinct tribes, plus miscellaneous Slavs and Celts), Greeks (Mycenaeans, Dorians, Slavs), Spanish (Celts, Romans, Carthaginians, Visigoths, Arabs, Berbers) also spring to mind...

People do kayak on lake erie quite a bit, but really only in good to very good conditions. Most don't try to go far from shore. The wind can be a huge factor.

Erie is actually fairly shallow. The wave action, therefore, can be highly irregular. Like being in a bathtub, the waves can come at you from all sides in the "right" or wrong conditions and can be additive with rebounds from the shore.

It is not magic dirt, but imo our only choice from here, is the of/by/for the people nation. But we need to unite around self reliance and the individual, which would require massive educational reform. There is a globalist effort to destroy traditional America ... and to form their own "intersectional" absurdity people.


imo we could conceivably swing back to preposition nation, back to individual morality of the home, away from statist control. But it requires red-pilling ... not open border opioid pilling.

This is a myth, it does not happen, and that is why it is a deadly lie.

The "melting pot" was a concept introduced for a few decades in the twentieth century. It was a nice idea. It didn't exist earlier - Americans, as a nation, are a mix of Britannic/German/French, three very closely related ethnicities - and it experimentally has not existed since. No, you can't bring up the Irish and Italians; they DIDN'T "melt" into the broader population until multiple generations had passed. They're a clear and absolute disproof of the concept.

Ourselves and our posterity. That's who Founding Fathers established the country for. Not "ourselves and anybody from anywhere on the planet who comes here saying the right things".

If the guy working two jobs could cover his expenses with one job only it actually would be better for the country -- if more people worked that are now on the dole. I constantly watch the labor participation rate, which had plummeted for nearly 20 years.

You'd think with unemployment rates this low some people would decide to give the labor market a try and the labor participation rate would begin to rise again. All I'm seeing is a flat line. The percentage of people who wish to work are now working. The percentage who don't want to work are not working.

true, some of the new groups brought bad heritage traits. I'm not sure "organized crime" ever went away, even if Giuliani cleaned up the streets. But CurrentAmerica will have to teach the basics anyway ... the internet will help accelerate the learning ... and heritage actually is "diversified" (watered down) in general.


The path forward will be different than what the founders sought, imo, as far as "ourselves and our posterity". But it requires a 1920s style stop to massive immigration, all stop to illegals, and a stop to the globalist gangsters running the current coup and DeepState. no small thang.

Take any and every "bad old thing" and just insist that those chauvinist and racist attitudes and ideas are *better*... and magically the ideology becomes "progressive."

One way you can increase the labor participation rate is to vet your immigrants carefully, and also preclude them from going on the dole for a set period of time. Pick the best and brightest, the most eager to work for the rewards this country has to offer, as opposed to their homeland.

When Trump talks about allowing good people in, I think this is his thinking.

It's that simple. Some people lack the drive to work. I don't know if it's innate, or a learned thing (I suspect it's a combination of both).

Those people, given an opportunity to not work, will work very, very hard at not working. Harder than if they had a job.

If you make work necessary for them, most of them will rocket out of government dependency so fast your head will spin.

Worth noting - in this political environment the sacrificial lambs sometimes win.
Harris County TX lost it's longtime, effective County Judge this past election to straight-ticket voting. A 27 yo SJW activist with no executive experience whatsoever now is responsible for the lives and well being of about 1.8 million residents. It's going about as well as one might expect.

The County Judge is like the Mayor for the unicorporated parts of Harris County. There is also a Commissioners Court which is like a city council. In Texas' form of government, the Judge and Commissioners have to go to Austin in order to get any legislation passed. Ed Emmet, the R incumbent for County Judge, did a bang up superb job during the flooding of Harvey and previous events back to Katrina and earlier.

Cohen criticized the Electoral College's origins, saying, "When the Constitution was drafted, a lot of it had to do with slavery."

As a Texan, I know a fair number of ethnically Hispanic people who are as American as anybody, many with roots going back to the Revolution.

The idea that people from other races can't blend in here has been disproven completely.

Ain't no magic dirt, ain't no magic blood.

American is a state of mind, it's a desire for as much liberty as you can possibly get without sliding into anarchic chaos.

If you want to be ruled, you're not an American. If you don't, no matter where you are, you've already taken the first step to being one.

CA is a slave state. When I declare this, they have their illegal aliens counted as people for representation which dilutes citizens voting and allows slaveholders a disproportionate vote (because slaves do what they are told). Let's all go back to the Federalist Papers and redebate it.

I guess she didn't need a refund of her withheld taxes, if any.

368 Speaking of immigrants of the past ( I'm first generation), in the Detroit area we had a small town called Hamtramk which was all poles. If you went there in the morning you would see old and young polish wives out washing their driveways and the streets in front of their houses. The churches were unbelievably beautiful, and the stores sold the best baked goods and meats. Now the town people are in full burka, the streets are filthy and the stores are mostly closed due to high crime. And the call to prayer is on speakers. No assimilation.

This. So much.

And those Hillary Soccer Moms are the ones going out of their way to signal how "woke" they are by demonizing any notion that perhaps immigrants should TRY to assimilate.

And if their children are being taught in school that America is evil and that there is no understood definition of "American exceptionalism" or a uniquely American ethos... even those who *want* to assimilate are going to be hard pressed to figure out what that means.

But, the Doge wanted it in the daytime, so he stiffed Dahl. Dahl tried to unload it elsewhere and finally found a buyer in Denmark. Not hard, since the Danes are notoriously early to bed and had no idea what Copenhagen harbor looked like at night.

That is, easily, the brightest moon I've ever seen. It looks much more like the sun covered by clouds. That ain't no moon.

And "harbor" is spelled without a "u" ... friggin danes ...

74 Copenhagen Satisfies - a limerick



There once was a Dane named Hans Gruff

Who gave up cigarettes in a huff

Quitting smoking was a cinch

Twixt cheek and gums, just a pinch

His friends all told him "'Snuff is 'snuff!!"

Oh, it does. We think of Europe as being over there (*points sideways*) but it's really over there and way up.

It's lovely in the summer when there's twilight on the river at 10 PM, but in the winter when you go to work in the dark and come home in the dark it is darn depressing.

However, with lights on in only one building I have eliminated the 4 PM hypothesis and decided on early morning.

======

I've heard that's more or less how the semiauto ban in Australia went down: in the "buyback" (aka confiscation) the govt. only got about 1/4 of the privately owned semiautos thought to exist in country. Rather than push the argument, the govt. proclaimed "mission accomplished" and left it at that. Sort of like the NY's "Assault Weapons" registry which got less than 10% compliance (most of which were LE connected firearms).

153 In light of Trump retweeting an article by John Solomon yesterday that highlights the interference in the 2016 election by Ukraine and his seemingly out of the blue hammering of McCain, you might find this article from March 2018 interesting.

https://bit.ly/2TWu0lq

It's starting to look like the Russia collusion crap was at least a partial cover for interference by Ukraine and an attempt to trash Russia for the benefit of Ukraine.

McCain and his uniparty colleagues throughout the government including the CIA and State Dept were deeply involved in the conflict between Ukraine and Russia and almost universally came down on the side of Ukraine including installing much of their government after the revolution in Ukraine in 2014 that deposed pro-Russian president Viktor Yanukovych.

One of the foreign dignitaries asked to speak at McCain's funeral, a funeral Donald Trump was pointedly not invited to attend, was the current president of Ukraine and longtime McCain friend Petro Poroshenko.

It has happened before on the 737. British Midlands Flt 92 suffered engine problems. Crew was not familiar with the changes in the then new model 737-400. They shut down what they think is the faulty engine and problems vanish, until landing and the 'working' engine grenades.

https://youtu.be/NKxjPzqpFj0

Ironically, that's basically the plot of a pretty good 1964 Glenn Ford movie, "Fate is the Hunter". He's an FAA investigator trying to learn why a plane with one good engine crashed.

Boeing's problems are getting worse each day, because it's looking like this wasn't just a "crew error" problem. It was reported yesterday that the airplane involved in the Lion Air crash in Indonesia should have crashed the day before, except by chance there was a senior, experienced pilot riding along in the jump seat, and he knew how to quickly disable the autopilot when the plane started to nosedive. The next, day, different crew, no one in the cockpit knew what had just happened the day before.

It looks like Boeing has built a plane where Otto the Autopilot is a psycho serial killer, and he tries to take over whenever the human pilot looks away.

237 "Trump know's all that McCain did.We don't.Yet."

This is my thought; he gets briefed on things that aren't general consumption yet, and what CAN be said gets embargoed by the "news", and he goes off on twit with things that remain incomplete by necessity.

and the "news" goes nuts, not only because it's an opportunity to shriek Orangeman crazy, but they know what he's actually talking about.

238 I really don't understand all the serious discussion of Democrats proposing to get rid of the electoral college. This is a Constitutional provision. To change the Constitution, you need to follow the amendment process in the Constitution. This requires (1) 2/3 of both the House and Senate to agree to propose an amendment and (2) 3/4 of the States to agree to the change. I can't imagine small and midsize states agreeing to give up power and let California and New York decide who the President is. It's a nonstarter. Yet "serious discussion" without any mention of the Constitution's amendment hurdles. I just wish some "reporter" would specifically ask the Fake Indian why the smaller states would ever in a million years agree to this and, once she's agreed they wouldn't, ask her why the fuck she is wasting everyone's time with a DOA proposal?

It's the Popular Vote method.

Bottom line is they want the most populous states, such as CA, to control the country, because through open borders and other policies that attract serfs (govt. entitlements) they are ensuring they have the highest populations.

First of all, states are not allowed to enter into any compacts with one another without Congress' approval.

Secondly, I would say that it is clearly a violation of the Constitution's main purpose of creating a "federal" government, not a national one.

And thirdly, it would certainly dilute the votes of the states' citizens. Normally, this would have been meaningless with the old idea that each state has full control over how it selects its Presidential electors ... but with the suffrage amendments that passed later that became, mostly, inoperative (as it was rendered less than meaningless for state Senators, too).



Therefore, I predict that the SCOTUS will allow the states to circumvent the Constitution and claim that the Constitution, itself, requires that.

305 When will somebody take them to court for unconstitutionally disenfranchising their citizens?
Posted by: ALH
Hopefully never.

Since the Supreme Court is barred from making "advisory" decisions, no case of this kind can go before them until after it actually has taken effect, and an election has been affected by it.

What it means is that, if this ever is used, and if it affects the income of a Presidential Election, then we'll have a situation making Bush v. Gore look like tiddlywinks, where the entire nation is on edge for months waiting for the Supreme Court to elect the next President.

and that's yet another reason why who controls the Supreme Court now determines who will control this country.

306 Atrial flutter.....anybody had one? How did you treat it?


********


I once did a DC cardioversion (electric shock) on a young dude, sort of a country boy, redneck, hillbilly type with atrial flutter. Sedated him with propofol, applied the (low dose) paddles and shocked him. He sat bolt upright in the gurney, yelled, "Holy motherf*cker!", plopped back down on the gurney. Everybody in the ER heard him. I swear he almost came out of his cowboy boots. He had no recollection of the event afterwards.

His rhythm was normal afterwards.

It hinges on a very isolated reading of the Constitution that depends on an understanding that States have the absolute unquestioned power to determine how electors are allocated.

Thing is, Courts have ruled in the past that, among other things, you cannot take one part of the Constitution and ignore the rest of it. So in this case, we have an Equal Protection guarantee and something done cannot ignore that. In fact, Courts have ruled in the past that the Federal Government does indeed have a substantial interest in the electoral college mechanism and can step in when necessary.

Frankly, doing away with the Electoral College is fantasy on a number of levels, however it does hinge on a judiciary that has no problem in swatting down frivolous arguments. That it's getting the play it's getting does concern me though.

383 378 Until they get 271 electoral college votes allocated this way, isn't the only effect going to be to reduce attention and campaign spending in the smaller states that enact this? Therefore reducing the voter turnout to more dedicated (rabid) types who pay attention. Might that be good for us?

The Dallas Morning News has reported that there were at least 5 American Airlines pilots calling for the new 737's to be grounded before the last crash, for these exact same reasons, and that Boeing, and the FAA, and their own management dismissed their warnings as unverified. (or something)

It reminds me of the Challenger Space Shuttle crash, where the team that built the boosters was screaming "don't launch! don't launch!" and Nasa said "aw what are you scared of, ya big babies."

The Morning Report - 3/21/19

wasthtb.jpg

Good morning kids. Thursday and after going an entire winter without so much as a sniffle, I come down with something before the first full day of spring is even over. Oh well, let's get right to the links.

Immigration: The illegal alien animal who murdered Mollie Tibbetts is getting money to pay for an expert witness at his trial (corrected for accuracy, jjs) - on how to be an illegal alien and get away with murder, no doubt. Meanwhile the amount of money reported as remittances is huge, and if you were to slap a tax of say 90-95% on it, that might put a serious crimp in the incentive to invade the country in the first place as well as perhaps de-incentivizing the upwards of 30 million illegal aliens already here to remain. Meanwhile, Maine GOP honcho Nick Isgro is being smeared by the usual gang of Leftist scum for speaking the truth about the national crisis of open borders and while the SCOTUS ruling a few days back is a big win, we are still losing the war to preserve our national identity and sovereignty.

Democrat-Sanctioned Joo-Hatred: The anti-American front group known as MoveOn is calling on all Democrat 2020 prexy candidates to boycott AIPAC. And first out of the gate to take that call seriously appears to be "Blotto" O'Rourke who sees horns on Bibi's head and a halo over Abbas'. Feh. If none of this does not tell you that the driving forces in that party are officially and openly anti-Semitic, you're not paying attention. Finally, two pieces on the possibility of a "Jexodus," one from Daniel Greenfield and the other spotlighting the Jewish Maxim model (and total hottie) Elizabeth Pipko who has been taking flak for outing herself as not a braindead Leftist pod-person.

To politics where, starting off in Civil War 2.0 category, Meathead "Rob" Reiner continues the incitement of violence by comparing President Trump to cancer. And not unrelated, the rabid ignoramus is linked to a cabal that is engaging with the same players to continue to pimp collusion propaganda to a more-than-eager media for immediate dissemination.

Looking at the Democrat Scandal Sheet, an octogenarian film-flam man may be behind bars for the rest of his life for bilking gullible Bernie and Beto boosters out of big bucks and then trying to pull a Bialystock and Bloom on them, while No-Shot Jello-Brain Gillibrand stammers and stutters out a lame excuse about her aiding and abetting the sexual abusers among her key staff.

The big story in politics, which is really just the coming out of the closet, if you will, is the Democrats full-throated pushing for the abolition of the electoral college and the packing of the SCOTUS among other things as a means to secure permanent political power. They know, as we do, that even in today's fractured society, they cannot easily advance their agenda electorally or even legislatively. So do away with the safeguards that protect against majoritarianism and essentially, America will be ruled by Santa Monica and the Upper West Side. Forever. In any case, as the lead article illustrates, all of these schemes require a Constitutional amendment, but that presupposes a) Democrat States and leaders abiding by the Constitution and b) a John Roberts-led SCOTUS that will do its duty and strike down these attempts to overthrow the process.

Elsewhere, despite all of this, the latest polls show Trump handily beating Beto and Bernie and the RNC made a massive haul in campaign bucks last month, Donna Brazile hated McCain before she loved him, Palsi Pelosi tries to tamp down the impeachment talk, No-Shot Gillibrand deflects from her own slimy behavior by promising free money and citizenship to illegal alien invaders, Tank Abrams (the poor man's Lauren Hutton) is still bitching and moaning, Andrew "Out-the-Ying" Yang is one sick pup, Rabbi Fischer on Kellyanne Conway's domestic disturbance, V.D. Hanson on Trump's 2020 outlook and two fine essays on the totalitarian progressive menace.

Mueller/Congressional Coup: McStain was instrumental in the collusion hoax and the attempt to revoke Jared Kushner's security clearance.

Abortion: Big crowds expected for Illinois anti-baby killing rally, abortion is going to be murder on 2020 Dem prospects, of all people, Kermit Gosnell has misgivings on legalized third trimester infanticide, and a feminizazi is caught stealing crosses from a pro-life display.

First Amendment and Fake News Fakery: The National Laughingstock Washington Post lets Turk Turdogan, the world's biggest jailer of journalists, write a vile op-ed, CNN spouts utter lies about the electoral college and James Madison, Jeffrey Lord on the Tu-Ca persecution, and two essays on breaking up Big Brother Big Tech.

Guns: The tone-deaf hypocrisy of the Colorado AG is staggering; calls for the firing of sheriffs who refuse to confiscate guns in violation of our second amendment while the country is lousy with sanctuary cities and states for allowing illegal alien criminals to roam freely. Get fucked, jerk-off.

Foreign Desk: An Indian oil company is flouting our embargo on Venezuela, Mexico's Obrador is steering that country towards Venezuelan doom (if it ain't already there), 2020 Dems are hot and horny to allow the Farsis to nuke up, and more on the Poland holocaust dust-up. Meanwhile a US general is risking his career by telling the truth about identity politics.

We-All-Slam-For-I-Slam: Malkin exposes CAIR for the terrorist-enablers they are and "Bro-Fo" Omar votes against a bill allowing insurance companies to deny claims to relatives of terrorists. Shocking.

Domestically, the IG reveals the DoJ covered up for a rotten turd with an FBI badge, some hope for reform with the new FDA commissioner and let's expand the welfare state even more with family leave - not. Meanwhile, the widening of the Panama Canal kneecaps the economic and sometimes political stranglehold that west coast longshoremen's unions have on Asian trade.

Crime and Punishment: Chi-Com national sentenced for pimping killer pills, a look at leftist prosecutors and their undoing of law and order in big cities and Lee Boyd Malvo, the younger half of the DC terrorist sniper duo is up for parole. What will SCOTUS do?

Education: The incoming USC chancellor led the war on Confederate monuments at UNC, a twist on reparations as Harvard being sued for using pictures of slaves, the case against a leftist college forcing a conservative student to participate in activism heads to court and Chiquita Khruschev AOC is in hot water again, this time for attending a conference to end standardized testing and lying about it.

Red Greens: Hack-in-black Obama stooge puts kibosh on Wyoming oil drilling, US cities ending the money-wasting recycling scam, the journal Science goes full Lysenko, and 10 years after the Climate-Gate scandal, global warming is all but debunked. Meh, the story was mostly embargoed by the agitprop media and it's still an article of faith by the Donkey Chompers set.

Feminazism and Transgender Psychosis: British authorities threaten to take an autistic teen away from parents if they refuse to cut off his penis and put him in panties and garter belts.

Hither and Yon: Christian Toto ponders the Left's reaction to Best of Enemies, a look at Shrill in context to abortion, the long and horrid rap sheet of the SPLC and Socialism's bloody body count. And still counting.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

NOTE: The opinions expressed in some links may or may not reflect my own. I include them because of their relevance to the discussion of a particular issue.

I originally thought that until I started to engage many of the targets of this action.

You don't want to ride that train.

Many work here and send the money home because they don't really want to live with us, they want to live among their own people and culture. And, quite frankly, it is far too damned expensive to live in the US.

I spent time in a quaint central Mexico city and was enjoying symphonies, museums and $15 high end steak dinners.

If we penalize them for sending money home that will only encourage them to bring their families and culture up here and the problem gets much, much worse as our nation and culture is finally dissolved away never to be seen again.

26 how do you tax remittances without taxing all outgoing dollars from anyone?

It just sounds cool when you say it, but implementation is a detail left to others.

What I found interesting in Mexico is the difficulty in converting dollars to pesos. American visitors can do it, but passports are required and only certain banks will even do it. Mexican citizens have to undergo an anal exam because of the huge amount of drug dollars that come in.

So there is all kinds of tracking of US currency into Mexico - the problem is, its being done by the Mexican government, not the US.

Again, to better understand how the world works, it helps tremendously to use the template that our government, at every level, is an occupying hostile enemy force that enjoys inflicting pain while plundering the conquered vassals.

No offense, Great One, but just like Sodomite "marriage" and a host of other atrocities inflicted by the deviant on to the Normal population, there will be Herculean efforts by the usual suspects to not only provide those bennies, but to also put them in the front of the line with some sort of variation of the Reparations claim.

And as for voting rights, they are voting Right Now. If not directly, they are having their votes cast for them because their numbers are calculated in the apportionment of voting districts, and those who can legally vote are always the Gerrymandered Left who will use that vote multiplier of their counting as if they are citizens to vote "the right way" for them.

69 Morning horde.

Read the intro, but before I get to following the links, I have two podcasts to recommend. Both are at Ricochet (and new there.)

1. They've added Derek Hunter to their lineup.

https://tinyurl.com/y425s8x2

2. Even more, they've now got an American Mind (Claremont related) one. The first is Michael Anton.

https://tinyurl.com/y6mm7mdl

I don't think Anton gets enough mention here. He is, after all, the Flight 93 guy. And for money, he's about the best of the pro-Trump intellectuals. Unlike Hanson and Kimball, he has a strong sense of what is, and what is not, in his wheelhouse. (The former two, much as I like them, are spreading themselves thin nowadays.)

Anyway, the Anton interview is really excellent. Highest recommendations (though of course, as he's a Straussian, I have some reservations. Of course, that's from an avowedly premodernist perspective.)

Ricochet is an example of something I'm noticing. There is a real breakup going on among the anti-Trump Potemkin Cons.

When I first started going there, it was mostly a lineup of Never Trumpers. I think Goldberg and Nordlinger had 4 shows each, at least it seemed that way. Many of them were, effectively, audio porn of cuck-on-cuck homo sex.

But more and more they are adding our side. (And I note their commenters - all subscribers - tend to approve of this.)

They do have a warped sense of proportion, though. I have nothing against Dave Sussman, as libertarians go, he's quite sane. But why do they give video of him, but not of Bridget Phetasy? That's just wrong.

The rally was yesterday, literally across the street from me, and BIG crowds showed up -- so many that they literally couldn't fit any more people inside the capitol building!

Actually there were two rallies going on at the same time -- Moms Demand Action (the anti-gun group) was there also, and between both groups there were at least 3,600 people in the capitol building when they had to start turning people away -- but I believe the pro-life rally was the larger of the two.

We used to get 5,000 to 10,000 a month crossing, now we're getting 80,000 - 90,000 a month.

Tariffs are imposed on incoming stuff, not outgoing. And even if you could pass legal muster to single out remittances to certain countries like Mexico to tax, by the following week there would be 300 businesses set up in Romania etc. to receive the remittances, charge 2%, and forward the dough to Mexico.

He's just as vile as Ted. The only good thing about him is that as the corruption as progressed, his intellect has declined.

136 That's why I said to any foreign country. Plus it costs way more to wire than a $5 or $10 "fee".

I'm sure that various minds have been working on a way to do exactly what you propose as one way to curb the drug and contraband smuggling trade.

What advice would you give to a US headquartered operation that has branch offices in foreign countries?

How would you treat Ford or Boeing when they invest billions in foreign manufacturing operations?

There are legions of legitimate operations that need to move money in and out of the US.

Are you also proposing that the US imposes a fee on every outbound banking and investment trade performed across borders?

A roach motel approach like this will guarantee a repeat of the mistake Argentina made.

149 If taxing remittances won't work, how about a "fee" added to every remittance to a foreign country. Let's call it the "border security fee". Something like $5 or $10 a transaction and limit transaction amounts to a certain amount per transaction....

You know that money is easily wired. So there is a fee attached to remittances on money sent to countries A, B and C. (despite the obvious an immediate death to that by a US court decree), nothing prevents sending the money first to country X, Y or Z and having it forwarded from there.

This is money laundering 101.

If the money leaves the US PERIOD, it's taxed at 80% unless you are a registered business and it is being transferred bank to bank.

1. Requiring bank to bank transfers removes Western Union as the major money transfer.

189 WRT this "remittance" thing, something I noticed some years ago back when I was working the 11a-8p shift (preferred it as I'd miss the morning and evening traffic). Each day the cleanup crew, composed of illegals, would show up around 6pm. Over time I'd noticed that the same bunch would be there every day for several months....then they'd disappear for several months. Still more time would go by and damned if some of those who had disappeared would reappear.

After a while of watching this, I started asking around among the cleanup crew about why this was happening. A lot of the illegals (to be sure not all of them, but a lot nevertheless) would come up here, work for several months, shipping most of their income back to Mexico. Then they would go home and kick back, living on their accumulated money, until the money ran out, then they'd come back up here and do it all over again. (Keep in mind that in Mexico, the cost of living is such that you can live like a king on less that $10 a day, so this little scheme worked quite well for them.)

And oh yes, if you go to the Mexican neighborhoods, you will see lots of storefront operations with names like "Banco Popular", which is where the illegals wire their money back to Mehico. Pretty simple, really....

Is it possible the money they are sending was derived in part from taxpayer-funded entitlements? Illegal business activities, such as drugs?

Banks in the US go through govt examinations at least three times a year, and for large multinational banks they generally have a full-time govt examiner sitting there. Part of the exam program has to do with looking at wire transfer activity.

I think a lot of this stuff is something the Federal Government is already looking at. Speaking from experience, a big red flag would be looking at regular wire transfers from a bank customer, looking at that customer's accounts, and seeing that there's no activity other than the transfers.

256 You have to look at house prices regionally - there is so much disparity between what's happening on the coastal states and what's happening in the middle than any "average" for the country is meaningless. It's like trying to figure out something by knowing the "average" height of a group of basketball players mixed with a group of jockey's.

From the best current numbers I can find, California median home price is currently $525,000. Texas median home price is less than half of that, sitting at $234,000

The primary difference, as always, is the amount and availability of new supply coming on to the market. In 2018, if I read my Census chart correctly, Texas built about 123,500 new homes. California only built 62,000, less than half that.

Imagine that - if you provide twice the supply, the result is half the cost. Someone should do a study about that, maybe call the relationship a Supply-Demand Equation, or something like that.

We went to see Steve Miller in Greenville last night. What a great show. At 75, he still sounds like he did during his height of popularity.

If anyone is familiar with "Wild Mountain Honey," he told the tale of its Ravi Shankar-like guitar sound. He said 50 years ago (!) when he was just starting out, he was paid $250 for a show. He went to Manny's (famous music store) on 48th St. in NYC to buy a Les Paul. He quickly found out he couldn't afford one of those, and started walking out the door. He passed a big box of guitars with just the necks sticking out. A bargain basement-type assortment...for $250/each. He grabbed one, pulled it out and bought it. It wound up being a sitar guitar and from there, he wrote that song where you can hear its sound so well. He brought that same guitar on stage last night and played Wild Mountain Honey with it. Fun show.

Quite so. I'm retired now and have had to make a few trips to the Social Security office in Conroe, Texas. And a good 2/3 of the people in there on a given day are not retirement age Americans signing up for their SS and Medicare.

Most of them are illegals signing up for their government bennies, all quite young and healthy looking. And oh yes, they are not all from south of the border either. You have plenty of Asians (Chinese and the like) and Africans as well. ICE would have a field day if they were to show up at that office on pretty much any day.

In order to enforce a ban on remittances, you have to grant the Federal Government the right to inspect *every* piece of mail, *every* electronic communication, and *every* financial transaction to make sure the populace is not coming up with a way to daisy-chain money transfers. (which still happens even in totatitarian dictatorships, who do all of those things)

You give the Feds the power to do that, and the next time a Kamela or an AOC is elected, they're going to have all the statutory power they need to "inspect" every piece of YOUR mail, every electronic communication YOU make, every financial transaction that YOU make.

Yes. As I said to @sbg1, to understand Trump "you have to look at everything through the prism of his narcissism." Once you do that, pretty much everything makes sense.

He lies even when it makes no sense to lie. As one of his lawyers once told me, Trump couldn't be allowed to talk to Mueller because "he'd lie his ass off."

The only qualifier to this is that his compulsive lying is also important to understand. He lies, as we have seen, about everything, about matters big and small, about things that matter and things that don't.

So the two keys to understanding Trump are narcisissm and compulsive prevarication.

Yes. He's worst kind of dumb.

In between these tweets he's retweeting other people trashing Trump, i.e., Ana Navarro, Brian Stelter, Bill Kristol, etc.

all this talk of some sort of reset or jubilee on debt (forgiveness?). Bennies go right to the rich, as the poor are enable to buy the tech and services (Amazon, Netflix, hardware, etc.) And they can buy the drugs from Mexico and points south.

And legals and illegals send remittances around the world, as well as US Dollar corporations pushing dollars into foreign lands by moving there, and by that money going into our markets ... (where inflation really IS showing up)


But Americans depending on the pensions would maybe riot, if they get the 50% they probable deserve (since they got it by bribing the Dem mafia for outlandish golden early retirement parachutes).

No, you're wrong. He is being allotted that money to *PAY FOR AN EXPERT WITNESS*. He is NOT being paid to BE and expert witness.

Good! It would give us a great reason to finally invade Mexico, destroy the cartels, incorporate Mexico as US territories, then states, and turn them into a halfway decent place to live. I'm betting we could at least make them better than Mississippi. Definitely better than Puerto Rico.

  • When vaping is outlawed only vapors will be outlaws. San Francisco where needles are discarded on sidewalks and the streets filled with shit.

  • Once again Leftards make the case that single payer health care is ridiculous.

  • What came first the egg or the global warming. Settled science my ass.

  • Outstanding. Instead of being high energy and adventurous, this shop will be fat and lazy. Kickstarter to unionize.

  • The nice thing about living in America's Dairyland is I don't have to eat this weird shit. Wonder if CBD will try this?

    No need to ask for directions when you're a Genius Award Winner.

    PORT HURON, Mich. - A man who was allegedly attempting to transport meth from Montreal to Calgary was busted when his iPhone navigation took him to a border checkpoint - Port Huron's Blue Water Bridge.

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection inspected a Canadian vehicle at the bridge on Wednesday, driven by a Canadian citizen, Constantine Xethalis. Two others were in the vehicle.

    After they were unable to provide proof of citizenship, the vehicle was searched. Officers found approximately 10 pounds of meth in tablet form.

    77 O?T and I know I'm early but I want to ask the Horde to pray for two men. One a Kittitas County sheriff deputy, Ryan Johnson. 42 killed last night by a criminal who opened fire on him during an attempted traffic stop. He leaves behind a wife and three children. Wounded in the same event was Kittitas City police officer Benito Chavez, 22. He was airlifted to a Level One trauma center in Seattle with a shattered femur. He will be, eventually, okay. He and his wife are expecting their first child.
    The criminal, who you can do with what you will, Juan Manuel Flores Del Toro, 29 died at the local hospital. Deputy Johnson was a 15 year veteran. Officer Chavez was only hired in December. I'll ask prayers for them and their families.

    A "Slapweasel" will rid your homestead of Weasels, but you should never allow it entry into your House, Proper.

    Just finished the remake of "Suspiria" and I think I like it even more than the original. Instead of the lurid colors and jump scares of the 70's version, its all dreary muted neutrals slashed by blood red. And it has one of the most gruesome black magic scenes ever.

    I'm still fuming about a nightmare I had with MS tech support this morning. My problem was that my copy of Windows 10 Pro on my new system deactivated itself. This was a $200 full copy I bought back in Dec. I just bit the bullet and did it, since I had no upgradable version(well, that would work) of Windows for what became the new system.

    Now, this ASR mobo is based on the new Intel z390 chipset, so new and cutting edge and some bugs and rapidly updated BIOS as those kinks are worked out.

    I have flashed 3 new BIOSes (BIOi?) since I put it together in Dec. During one of those flashes, one of the MAC addresses on one of the (3!) onboard Ethernet controllers was wiped out.

    No problem -- ASR tech support emailed a link to download a tool to reflash those addresses.

    I did that last night -- you had to open up the case to read the original factory MACs off some stickers on the mo/bo.

    Well, that flash operation changed something, some damn checksum or something in the (secret) algorithm Windows uses to computer a unique hardware ID.

    It would not reactivate, doing about a dozen different things to do it. So, time to call tech support. I was not going to throw away a $200 license.

    .....

    My call to tech support, after going through a long winded automated thing, connected me to some Indian woman.

    I could not understand a damn word she was saying. Her accent, cadence, inflection etc, was so off it sounded like gibberish. Unintelligible.

    I got frustrated and just said sorry, can't understand, and hung up.

    Fooled around with the same shit for another 30 minutes with no success, and, determined not to blow that $200, called again.

    Got another Indian woman. Still couldn't understand a damned word. It took over 30 minutes, but I finally got her to understand and she connected me to someone up the chain.

    Not native American, but much better accent. No problem. Well, that took another near hour. We finally got my $200 purchase verified, and me verified.

    She then sent me up the chain to some Windows guy. He was American, and knew a bit what he was about.

    The trouble was some glitch didn't generate a proper key for the full retail purchase. It thought it was an upgrade, the free kind for previous Windows that aren't transferable or something.

    He had to generate a new key. First he had to get authorization from his superiors to do that. Then it took 15 minutes for the system to generate said new key.

    He then gave me the key, and voila, she activated.

    Over 3 hours total time on the phone this morning.

    No. But what are now called flip flops used to be called "thongs." As every 'Ron here knows, "thongs" are now very skimpy under panties.

    When my daughter was in college I attended a tea at her sorority. The girls were all wearing flip flops although the weather was cold.

    I said--why on earth are all these gals wearing thongs? The silence in the room was deafening, and I gave my daughter yet another thing to tell her therapist!

    I ceased using it within a day or two and sold it within a month. Foolhardiness need not be engaged with at each and every possible venue.

    We had some new kids move into the neighborhood who were skateboarders, We live out in the boondocks, with nowhere really to skateboard. I didn't see a point, dirt bikes on the other hand, loved making ramps and other crazy crap without helmets.

    This Indian accent thing blew my mind. Those two women were unintelligible. Now, back in college I had a Mechanics professor who was Indian. It took a little getting used to, but his accent was actually enjoyable. SOrt of sing-song cadence, and rather fun to listen to.

    For example, "Moment of intertia" would sound like "momentum inertia". He pronounced moment, "moMENT". And "fuel" like "foo-el" (rocket equation stuff).

    And during collision problem lectures (standard 200 undergrad mechanics) he'd get all animated with diagrams of the billard balls. "Dis fellow go dis way, and dat fellow go dat way!"

    And he'd take his chalk and write on the walls when he ran out of room on the blackboard. He also drew on the door to the classroom, using it as a radius, "R -- dis is 'r', drawing a radius vector", then swinging the door back and forth to illustrate torque and such.

    He was a trip. And fun. Quirky accent, but lovable.

    These tech support MS outsourcees were not anything of the kind.

    Turns out from what I was reading that difference between my Mechanics prof and those tech support gals was, to put it bluntly, one of class.

    The former was a well educated, higher class Indian. He was a Ph.D in physics, educated in English. He though and spoke in English, using it conversationally from an early age and with native speakers. He then came over here to get the Ph.D and further honed his English.

    His native cadence was still there, but it was with real English, spoken by real speakers.

    Not so much the tech support gals. They are taught English, well "English" spoken by other Indians and completely removed from any native speakers of it.

    It's an odd affected artificial language really. It's not real English at all.

    275 We don't have Springtime in Alaska. We have breakup. Three weeks of filthy slop and precarious walking surfaces, wet feet and crabbiness, and usually a nice Chinook wind from the south at, say, 90 mph, intermittently.

    We are hip deep in breakup just now.

    The foot thick layer of compressed ice that made up my driveway is now several foot deep potholes full of filthy water and the rest is resisting chipping with everything the frozen ground can muster.

    Crossing the parking lot at work involved hip boots or maybe water skis.

    I've been behind enemy lines in MN since '90 - both our kids live here with their spouses so leaving anytime soon isn't an option. But we all keep our noses clean and do what we can. I have a trip to Maui in two weeks with the spouse of 29 years, a permit to purchase under review after a move to a twin home and a work move today to a corner cube with no one looking over my shoulder so life is pretty damn good.

    I've known enough Sheriff's dep't employees and other LEO's to say, your friends are right to be worried. Respond, but do it anonymously and in an untraceable manner.

    We do not live in a country, or a society, anymore where you can simply "trust" any Government official to be honest, or to "follow the rules". ESPECIALLY Law Enforcement - it's sad, but it's true.

    Remember the Houston case where a "Drug Raid" ended up getting a whole bunch of cops shot and both of the middle aged homeowners killed? The cop who got that warrant has now admitted that he faked all of the info that he gave to the Judge to get that warrant. But don't worry, he'll get a Sternly Worded Reprimand in his personnel file.

    I just read an interesting piece at the Daily Mail on the Titanic. There's more about the coal fire.

    That was something that came out a few years ago. There was a smoldering coal fire in some of the bunkers. This was a common problem with the coal burners. Anyway, it was known, and documented from testimony.

    But the claim is that it contributed much more to the sinking than thought. They claim that the fire had heated some of the bunker walls red hot and they have warped and weakened. When it hit the iceberg, it allowed it to break the water tight seals on the bulkheads.

    And second they were going pretty fast, stoking the furnaces pretty fast to try to get rid of the smoldering coal as fast as they could. Thus they hit the iceberg at a much greater speed than otherwise.

    388 Thanks for the ONT.

    Something interesting: I have been playing The Division 2 and it has been mostly quite good. There have been some cultural quibbles: The paramilitary enemy faction immediately starts acting like a mafia and executing it's own for desertion (although I have less issue with that last than they probably intended.)

    The part that made me go 'Huh?' was a mini boss that pops up if you do a side quest chain. The mini boss is supposed to be a 'direct descendant of Thomas Jefferson' who starts kidnapping people and forcing them to work for him as 'slaves' (remember this is after an epidemic has wiped out something like 95% of the world population.) The Division guy tells you 'Go make sure he cannot continue his ancestor's legacy of slavery.'

    Now, I am not a big Thomas Jefferson fan, but really? THAT is all you are going to take away from the author of the Declaration of Independence? Come on now, children.

    470 The new claim is they turned hard right, per naval rules to avoid collision, but the ice berg's mass was to the right. They then turned back to port, but it was too late.

    Posted by: publius, Rascally Rapscallion of a Poperin Pear at March 21, 2019 12:13 AM (f1Vqw)

    Turning hard right (to starboard) to avoid collision, only makes sense if the impending collision is with another vessel under way, with the helmsman also trained to turn hard to starboard in such circumstances. Icebergs are under way; they drift with the current, and cannot take evasive action if they even wanted to.

    I think there were a few hundred Bill Frick Studillacs made. I don't know if good records were kept. I might have seen one, but don't know if it was a Frick car. Pretty easy to make a clone, and a pretty easy engine swap to do, given that the Caddy engine of the day was dimensionally almost identical to Studebaker's V8.

    I think there is an SDC member in Georgia or the Carolinas with an actual Frick Studillac.

    499 The Studebaker club had a member who was keeping a registry of every known Studillac. This is a popular and honored pursuit among the odder products, like, for instance, the Packard Hawk. AFAIK his records are gone: he was a college prof, and on the day he retired he walked out of the ivied walls and keeled over dead.


    Usually that club's magazine is a real gold standard of historical accuracy. They did have one slip-up, though. They ran a detailed and admiring article on the work of the late Bill Frick.


    The next month, there was a good-natured letter to the editor, fromBill Frick.

    The Texas City Museum has an epic display, replete with hundreds of photographs, and artifacts.

    It was far worse than the mere statistics can portray.

    I've met survivors of the event.

    That kind of history, told by those that lived it, carry a kind of force that no mere textbook or photograph can convey.

    Every time I drive across the Galveston Causeway, I look out over the water at Texas City, and the ships moored at the exact same docks.

    552 I wish there were a conservative alternative to Youtube. Yeah I know, there should be conservative alternatives to all the big net platforms. But there are alternative search engines, browsers, and even web mail. There should be a Youtube alternative that draws content. I know there is some French option but it is not the same thing.

    Youtube pushes leftist videos relentlessly. I don't think there would even be an SNL if Youtube did not put them at the top of trending videos every freaking Sunday. And they will not stop putting this John Oliver video at the top of trending. I finally watched it after what seems like a week and I did learn something. John Oliver is hot garbage. If this is what people find interesting and worthy, God help us.

    One more thing I noticed from Youtube. If you search "Medal of Honor" and late night shows, the interviews seem to end around 3 years ago. I can't believe the late night hosts are so petty and so partisan that they wont interview MOH recipients from the present administration. That is some really weird stuff.*
    * Fallon, who seems to be the most normal of the group, did honor four recipients last year and at least one received the medal during the Trump admin. But I have not seen a single recipient interviewed like they were during the Obama admin. It is not a big deal in some ways, but it is a big deal in others. I mean, what the crap!
    I could have missed the interviews but sure can't find them.

    555 Back. Messing with my Chinese Mystery Pistol. It looks as though I made the firing pin too short. It dimples the primer, but did not set it off. I was using a cartridge from which I removed the bullet, and dumped out the powder, so no danger of a nasty accident.

    But I did get the extractor to work, so there's that. The firing pin I made is a short length of drill rod, silver-brazed into the end of the striker. I was aiming for about .050" of protrusion past the face of the breechblock, and I came up a little short. No biggie. I can heat the striker, remove the short piece, and braze in a longer one easily enough. But not tonight.

    lecturing rarely works. It depends of course on the stage of the disease but there is pretty much nothing sadder than watching people argue or even try to reason with a dementia patient at a certain point. And this is what you see all the time. It is human nature, it is how we are taught to interact.

    I am not going to give any medical advice but from my experience people are going to eat what they want to eat and when they are hungry. I recall hearing that dementia patients take a lot more time to eat so you have to account for that as well.

    I know one patient that would chew his pills like candy. It did not matter that some of those were designed to dissolve over time. My point is there are just some things you can't control. There have to be other ways to give them vitamins, roughage, or whatever the doctor thinks is necessary.

    Since he can no longer drive, I've been able to keep the Ho-Ho's, Little Debbies and Potato Chips to a minimum.

    ...so he has taken to eating my Clearly-Labeled, Low-Sodium food. I'm actually laughing right now because if I didn't, I'd be insane.

    578 Every situation is different, some are worse than others, and it is nobody's fault. You play the hand you are dealt. What worked for me was giving them the calmest, happiest, and most active situation possible. What I mean by active is physical exercise and mental stimulation when appropriate. Sitting around does little good for anyone.

    If the patient got fixated on something that was not reality, it is best not to argue, but to find a way to get their mind off that. In other words, to change the subject.

I think my next step is to use the depth gauge on my caliper to measure the actual firing pin protrusion, and if it is much less than .050", I will redo it. If it is .045 or better, I will try the factory ammo first (removing bullet and powder, of course).

    Time for me to call it a night.

    you have to laugh, gallows humor and all So much of this stuff requires creativity and love. You mentioned he doesn't drive anymore. That can be a real obstacle, a real challenge to get past. One thing that can help is letting them keep their keys but just not a car key. If you take away all their keys it takes away a sense of freedom and control they have had most of their lives. There is nothing good about this God awful disease, you just do your best. And you are voicing your concerns and trials, that can't be a bad thing. If you didn't you would not hear other's ideas.

    You might want to check into a care taker's support group if you have not already. I didn't do that, but that is no badge of honor. The care takers in some ways suffer more, but then again, I don't think many would trade places. Good luck to you Slap and all dealing with this disease.

    599 Listening to Vox Day's definition of Gamma Males right now. I have no idea where I fall in the socio-sexual hierarchy because it hasn't been Fully Explained, but I've got The List...

    -Alphas: They'll "conquer" anything, including chicks.
    -Bravos: They can easily take-charge, but they'd rather follow an Alpha.
    -Deltas: Competent, loyal, Hard-Working Individuals who never want to lead, but complete tasks at every challenge.
    -Gammas: Unless you are asking them about their Field of expertise, they will undermine and derail everyone to whine about how They Should Be In Charge, until they are.
    -Sigmas: Friendly, romantic individuals who don't take well to Alphas, but will complete tasks and are better Left-Alone, even though they need cajoling every now-and-again.
    -Omegas: Menial laborers with No ambition to Rise in Rank.

    I find this Breakdown fascinating. I refuse to Self-Diagnose because that seems silly. After all the definitions have been 'sussed', I'll rely on my Buddies to tell me where I fall.

    It's an excellent short story. My sister has a book of Sci Fi short stories and this was one of them. I had no idea it was made into a movie but not surprised they f'd it up.

    That Ikea drill story never gets old. He has a strong will to be able to post about that.

    He did mention, one time, that he is up to shelving project 4, and that they are bomb proof. IDK if this is Maggie McCain snogging bomb proof (which was always Allahpundit's dream), but he seemed pretty satisfied.

    Most of the pain associated with tooth issues is because of inflammation or swelling causing compression of nerve endings. In my experience, a small tab of aspirin in the area does away with 90% of the pain.

    Aspirin tastes like shit though.

    718 I mentioned this before and it is only for educational purposes. I had a couple of root canals over a period of two years. Then i got another fistula near my last root canal.

    I went to a new dentist with crazy high yelp ratings. He told me I was in for some serious oral surgery, and it would be way worse than a root canal and cost a lot more. He sent me to an endodontist and the guy could not determine where the infection was coming from. He put me on antibiotics and said let's see what happens. The infection went away and I didn't have to get a a procedure of any kind. That was a couple of years ago.

    I have an appointment with the endodontist next week. It's just an initial visit but I hope this infection is gone by then and that I don't have to get another root canal done. I may just have him pull the tooth if it is still messed up and get an implant. That might be the best plan in the long run.

    It puzzles me as to why US customer serving companies don't hire American workers, but would rather infuriate and frustrate their customers who don't want to explain their problem to someone on the opposite side of the planet.

    It would seem to be a natural fit for wheelchair bound people, or with today's telephony and scheduling equipment/software, those who can only work for short spans of time.

    Maybe its our culture. You call up already frustrated about a problem with the company's product, and two minutes into your conversation, the American "customer service representative" on the other end has hijacked your time so that they can talk about themselves.

    732 It puzzles me as to why US customer serving companies don't hire American workers, but would rather infuriate and frustrate their customers who don't want to explain their problem to someone on the opposite side of the planet.

    I've spoken with some very good reps on the other side of the world. But, it seems most often the phone connection is crappy, I can barely hear them (yeah, I'm over 29), and many seem to mumble.
    Irritating as hell.

    734 "I am not saying that is likely or even possible, just telling about a specific experience"

    Same
    thing with me, had an infected tooth, went in, had it numbed, took
    xrays, Dentist explained what we needed to do (spend a ton of money),
    gave me a prescription for antibiotics, I didn't do anything with it,
    never had an issue since. That was probably 15 years ago.

    A similar thing happened with our older dog. She scratched her eye playing in the rose bushes and it was pretty bad. Took her to the local vet for treatment for two weeks with no results. They sent us to a doggy eye specialist, cost $160 just to walk in the door.


    He was trying to get us to do some big expensive eye treatment where they scrap her cornea flat pack antibiotics in her eye and then sew it shut for two weeks. We said we would have to think about it.

    Two weeks after that her eye had fully healed by itself.

    735 Dentist will always recommend trying to save the tooth, it's up to the patient to do the cost analysis.


    Do I need a haircut? *to barber*

    Do I need a shoeshine? *to shineologist*

    Do I need a fitness coach? *to personal trainer*

    For some unknown reason, the answer is always 'Yes!'

    It would seem to be a natural fit for wheelchair bound people, or with today's telephony and scheduling equipment/software, those who can only work for short spans of time.

    Maybe its our culture. You call up already frustrated about a problem with the company's product, and two minutes into your conversation, the American "customer service representative" on the other end has hijacked your time so that they can talk about themselves.

    The human body (and apparently dogs too) has an amazing ability to heal itself given time.

    I remember a bunch of years back when Ebola was a big, big thing. I read up on how some people died while others survived. I came up with a theory that the end-stage blood coagulation was the cause of death. That a widely available prescription drug would keep the blood from coagulating and give the patients body time to fight off the Ebola. Somehow my internet theory got to some health care peeps.

    It is now considered a 'controversial' treatment.

    741 They are trying to make it sound like acceptable trade off for all of the good things they do!

    Like that one student that flummoxed Bobby Occasio Cortez by asking for specifics rather than platitudes, it seems that our betters are particularly skilled in avoiding details and stating problems or solutions in the most ambiguous and amorphous ways.

    Some of the oddest metaphors and abuse of the language come out of them trying to explain how to stand a puddle on its edge.

    Sort of like listening to streaming radio where the only advertisers are "male enhancement" products, and because everyone know that what they are selling isn't even good enough to earn the title "snake oil", the FTC and legal department has created a unique niche of marketing that has someone talking up a product without ever making any actionable claims.

    "Our customers rave about..." You are supposed to trigger on the word "rave" and eisegete "are happily excited and can't stop publicly praising" when "rave" can also mean "talk wildly or incoherently as if one were delirious or insane".

    That is how advertisements are to me now. I listen to all of the marketing techniques and the ways they skirt being sued for false advertising, or for words and phrases that are deliberately deceptive but not out lying.

    Sadly, this skill is also one of the top talents to have to be a Leftist today.

    Perhaps. The $15-20 would likely have to factor in total desk costs, management overhead, etc. I would think that some of that could be mitigated by work-at-home and that the native English speaker could get the job done in a third of the time due to not having to repeat themselves or completely missing the cultural elements within the conversation.

    There is some merit in the work at home thing as it does bring down costs to the employer. We are seeing an ever increasing number of Federal Government "virtual" jobs advertised on USA Jobs.

    What is often referred to as 'Pricing yourself out of a job'

    I almost look forward to the time when a fast food brand becomes so selective that they refuse to wait on anyone who will/can not use the kiosk.

    The office is literally 3200 steps away from my door, yet I work nearly 100% remote. I don't use traffic as an excuse because of the short distance, but traffic in CTX is awful and getting worse by the day because of the Seattle levels of mismanagement, NIMBY and incompetence at play.

    I turn down new opportunities several times a week because it would require me to go out in that mess, then go to an office full of disruptions, exposure to every kid's disease (brought to work through their parents), and pointless meetings that I have to feign interest in.

    I like the ability to work outside "standard" hours.

    Yeah so here's the clip from the Ellen DeGeneres show.

    The "strictly mishly" Cory Booker even laughs about the possibility of getting married to a (checks notes again) woman before or during his completely, laughably hypothetical presidency.

    Boy this Down-Low Brother sure Found Love with a (checks notes for the third time) woman just at the right time, huh?

    Thanks to Jane D'Oh for the story and "strictly mishly."

    The couple will soon announce which store they'll open their gift registry at. They first have to find a place that honors gifts given ironically or sarcastically.

    Credit: I knew I hadn't come up with "The Fiercely Heterosexual Cory Booker," but I forgot who did. My apologies -- that's the Deplorable Jay Guevara's "joke."
