Once Again, The One And Only Post

September 28, 2021

The Nullification Of Individual Humanity By Woke-ism

Women aren’t even people any more. They’ve given up even being “people who can menstruate” and are now merely mobile vaginas.

“Historically, the anatomy and physiology of bodes with vaginas have been neglected.”

The new Woke Overlords have changed the language once again.

This time, instead of women, it’s “bodies with vaginas.”

Again, not a joke.

We just saw the folks over at the ACLU change a quote about women’s rights from Ruth Bader Ginsburg to edit out any reference to the female gender. And when I saw that I thought, “how much further could the gender madness go?”

Well, we got our answer.

Progressive wokesters have gone full circle, far past their own Handmaids Tale dark sexual domination fantasies, past their 50 Shades of Grey. Now women have been reduced to mobile penile sheaths; not even ambulatory wombs. Just vaginas. Wasn’t that the assumed attitude of sexist pig misogynist males back in, and before, the 60s that got the whole Women’s Rights movement started? “Hey, my eyes are up here!” “I’m not just a sex object!!”

This really isn’t such a big surprise.

Progressives progress backwards. Always have. Because they’re Regressives.

They’ve regressed back to censored speech.
They’ve regressed back to segregation and racism (either reverse or the low expectation kind).
They’ve regressed back to tribalism, by destroying nationalism, unity, patriotism, and pushing sacrosanct victimhood and identity politics, which are both also dehumanizing.
They’re all hot for limitless central government power, so they’ve regressed from individual freedom.
And now they’re demanding you get your vax jab, or be put out of work, denied medical care, shut out of public spaces, and become a total pariah. Hey, wasn’t “my body my choice” the ultimate Progressive slogan just a couple years ago? No they’ve thrown away the rule of law and have regressed back beyond the most basic freedom concept of personal physical sanctity.

One lone home surrounded by lava flow from La Palma volcano

MADRID, Sept 27 (Reuters) - The Cumbre Vieja volcano on Spain’s La Palma island is again expelling lava and smoke, researchers said on Monday after activity had slowed to a near halt earlier in the day.

The Canary Islands volcanology institute confirmed the emission of lava via Twitter while TV footage showed a column of white smoke rising from the cone after several hours of calm.

A volcano on Spain’s La Palma island began ejecting lava again on Monday after a lull, while hundreds of people in coastal villages hunkered down in anticipation of lava emitted in previous days reaching the sea and releasing toxic gas.

Spurts of vivid lava emerged from the Cumbre Vieja volcano in the early evening and snaked down the dark mountainside after a period of several hours without explosions, according to Reuters witnesses.

The hiatus and new explosions came eight days after lava started pouring from the mountain range on the island, which neighbours Tenerife in the Canary Islands archipelago off North Africa.

“Activating and deactivating is logical, natural in the evolution of Strombolian volcanoes,” said Miguel Angel Morcuende, director of the Pevolca response committee, referring to the type of violent eruption that emits incandescent dust.

His Pevolca colleague, Maria Jose Blanco, said lower levels of gas and a reduced supply of material within the crater could have caused the drop in activity.

Since Sept. 19, black lava has been slowly flowing down the volcano’s western flank toward the sea, destroying more than 500 houses as well as churches and banana plantations, according to the European Union’s Copernicus disaster monitoring programme.

Looks Like Biden Missed This Boat Too

Remember those 10,000 - 20,000 - 30,000 illegal Haitians under that bridge in Del Rio TX? All gone now.

Remember how Biden and “Peppermint Patty” Psaki said they were all being sent back to Haiti, except for the few thousand who learned that and went back to Mexico? Yeah, a lie. Again.

DHS Mayorkas: We released 12,000 Haitian into the US

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas admitted on Sunday that more than 12,000 Haitian migrants who had been camped out under a bridge near Del Rio, Texas, have been released into the US and more may follow them.

He told “Fox News Sunday” that there are about 12,400 Haitians in the process of having asylum claims heard by an immigration judge, while around 5,000 are being processed by the Department of Homeland Security. About 3,000 are being detained.

“Approximately, I think it’s about 10,000 or so, 12,000,” Mayorkas responded when asked how many migrants have already been released.  He added that the number could go beyond 5,000 as other cases are processed.

“It could be even higher. The number that are returned could be even higher. What we do is we follow the law as Congress has passed it,” Mayorkas said.

The secretary said the administration “will make determinations whether they will be returned to Haiti based on our public health and public interest authorities.”

He also bristled under questioning by Fox News’ Chris Wallace who said DHS figures show the “flood” of illegal immigration has gotten worse under the Biden administration.

“I wouldn’t call it a flood,” Mayorkas said.

He’s right. It isn’t a flood. It’s a damn tidal wave, caused by some senile idiot in DC who broke Trump’s effective control system, because it was Trump’s system. According to TX Rep Tony Gonzalez, it’s 100 times worse than you think.

Where did these people get sent? None of your business. Will they come in for their hearings? Probably barley half of them. Ain’t that wonderful? Oh, and they got the ‘rona too, probably.

Many of the migrants being released into the US may have coronavirus because the Biden administration is not requiring them to be tested or be vaccinated after they enter the US illegally.
The US deported about 2,000 of the migrants in flights to Haiti and roughly 8,000 voluntarily returned to Mexico.

[ Fox News’ Chris ] Wallace pressed Mayorkas on how many of the migrants being freed in the US will remain and pointed out that the Justice Department estimates that about 44 percent of those released will miss their immigration court appearances.


I didn’t miss this boat.

Semper Paratus, Semper Esurientem

( always ready, always hungry )


The US Coast Guard on Diner Patrol around the corner from me this morning. Hey, Coasties gotta eat too!

As far as I can tell, the patrol boat they were towing is an RB-S B class, the B model of the Defender Class 25 foot Response Boat, Small. With 2 Honda 225hp outboards and a 105 gallon gas tank, it will zip along at over 46 knots. The B class boats got better shock absorbing seats, which I’m sure were needed.

The USCG does patrol the Delaware River, but I don’t know if they come up to the part near us. More like Camden and Philly, and down the bay to their Indian River base in Rehoboth Beach Delaware.  Must be nice duty when the weather is good, ticketing drunk boaters and swimmers without flotation vests. But the Coast Guard is more about when the weather isn’t good. You always have to go out, but you don’t always have to come back.

Proof Positive Humans In New World At Least 23,000 Years


White Sands NM is only about 70 north of El Paso in western TX. It’s about 4,000 miles from there to the Bering Straits, across some serious mountains. A generations long walk for people who hadn’t even invented sandals yet and who didn’t know where they were going. It’s only about 400 miles if you come in by boat from Baja California, and the land is much flatter that way.

David Bustos heard about the “ghost tracks” when he first went to White Sands National Park in New Mexico to work as a wildlife scientist in 2005. When the ground was wet enough at certain times of the year, the ghostly footprints would appear on the otherwise blank earth, only to disappear again when it dried out.

It wasn’t until over 10 years later, in 2016, that scientists confirmed that the ghost tracks had been made by real people — and it’s only now that some of the ancient footprints at White Sands have been dated as the earliest in North America.

“We’d been suspicious of the age for a while, and so now we finally have that it’s really exciting,” Bustos said. “One of the neat things is that you can see mammoth prints in the layers a meter or so above the human footprints, so that just helps to confirm the whole story.”

The footprints at White Sands were dated by examining the seeds of an aquatic plant that once thrived along the shores of the dried-up lake, Ruppia cirrhosa, commonly known as ditchgrass. According to research published Thursday in the journal Science and co-authored by Bustos, the ancient ditchgrass seeds were found in layers of hard earth both above and below the many human footprints at the site, and they were radiocarbon-dated to determine their age.

The tracks at one location have been revealed as both the earliest known footprints and the oldest firm evidence of humans anywhere in the Americas, showing that people lived there 21,000 to 23,000 years ago — several thousand years earlier than scientists once believed.

“It’s the earliest unequivocal evidence for humans in the Americas,” said the lead author of the study, Matthew Bennett, a professor of environmental and geographic sciences at Bournemouth University in the U.K.

Fossilized human footprints have now been found throughout the east of the national park, where the bed of a “paleo-lake,” which is now dry, supplies the gypsum-rich earth that is eroded by the wind to create the enormous white dunes for which the region is famous.

Any traces of early human habitation had been disputed because they relied on what seemed to be stone tools that might have formed naturally, Bennett said, or on artifacts that might have moved from their original stratigraphic layers.


helpful artwork shows strata across time, the animals present, with people already there

While White Sands is desert land now, 20,000 years ago it was a lush and fertile area, with abundant wildlife and its own large lake.

The scientists’ study of the New Mexico footprints revealed they were embedded with the seeds of a plant known as Ruppia cirrhosa, or more commonly as ditchgrass. The seeds were deeply engrained into the footprints, as the young people who made them had been stepping on ditchgrass as they ran or walked across the soft ground. As a result, radiocarbon dating of the seeds would tell the geologists exactly when the footprints were made.

Overall, seven footprint sites were found and dated. Radiocarbon testing produced different results at different sites, allowing the scientists to determine that humans had lived in or visited the area for at least 2,000 years. The oldest site produced the 21,000 BC reading, but the dating from each of the sites was old enough to conflict with the previous timeline for the arrival of the First Americans via the Bering land bridge [ the Beringia hypothesis ] .

The implication is that a) either the glacial record is wrong, or wrongly understood (glaciers tend to destroy all kinds of evidence, even mountains that get in their way), which means the Beringia hypothesis has flaws, or b) people came here by boat way way way earlier than they’ve been given credit for.

You see, the last Ice Age wasn’t static. Glaciers came and went. The Bering Straits land bridge theory had to be extended into a “standstill” hypothesis when it was learned that the path across from Siberia, into Alaska, and then out into the rest of the continent was blocked by massive, impassable mountains of ice for tens of thousands of years. So the science just assumed that people sat in place for 1000 generations, doing nothing, waiting until the ice melted. Build kayaks, go back to where there are trees and build boats? Learn how to sail, even if you just hug the coast? Nah, never. Not those simple minded cavemen.

And let’s ignore that with the lowered sea level of the Ice Age, and cooler climate everywhere, the water trip from Africa to South America was a good bit shorter. Which could explain those cave dwellings down in SE Brazil that have been dated to 30,000 years ago. Or, with lowered sea levels, the people who migrated to Australia and the closer islands of the South Pacific (they obviously had boats, probably ones with sails) could have kept right on going ... island hopping to the east, perhaps following the edge of the antarctic sea ice, which may not have been all that far south of Tasmania, all way across to South America, where modern excavations have dated finds in Monte Video to at least 14,500 years ago. So no, the Clovis folks weren’t the first.

I found this interesting. A lot of the information has been dribbling out for a decade or so; people have been living in the New World for far longer than the stiffs in academia have been willing to admit. They found those Clovis design knapped flint spear points a long time ago, and made their theories based on them, and then grew the theory like a spider web, all based on those finds. First Peoples got here 12,000 years ago, and that’s that. Other finds were ignored or denigrated. Now it’s fully come to light that undeniable proof exists that the Clovis people weren’t the first ones here, not by far. Thousands of years late to the party, perhaps 18,000 years or more. I am not the least bit surprised. Not that I think the paleo crowd are a bunch of stiff necked stuffed shirts, arrogantly assuming that ancient peoples were hardly better than tall chimpanzees. It’s just that the world is a big place, and people have been around a long long time, and pre-metallic cultures, along with pre-agrarian ones, don’t leave a lot behind.

You noticed the camels in that painting? That’s because there were still camels here at that point. The camel evolved here. Once upon a time, long long ago, there was a giant “cameloid” called a High Arctic Camel. Big critter, lots of fur. That’s the one that went the wrong away across the land bridge, and later evolved to be the two kinds of camels that now live in Asia and the Middle East.

Later on, in the Ice Age era of the Mega Fauna, there was an even bigger camel living in that area and to the south. This one was the Yukon Giant Camel, as big as a bull moose, weighing a ton. This may have been the same creature as the High Arctic camel. As the creatures moved south to warmer areas, the slightly smaller Western Camel evolved. That one was very much like the modern Dromedary camel (the one humper), but with longer legs, and it lived all over what is now the western USA and down into Mexico. They must have been pretty tasty, as the last ones were eaten up about 10,000 years ago.

Overall, pretty cool. And no Covid or politics whatsoever.


Ok, I guess the post above is more paleontology than archeology, but that’s kind of close. And since archeology posts here always come with a redhead, it seems right that paleo posts should have one too. Or one who is close. Auburn. Good enough

A Stolen Post. Some Comments Are Too Good To Ignore.

This is a comment from an online comic strip. Ok, it’s a right wing comic strip, but I think it mostly exists so that the author can draw pictures of naked women. So, lowered expectations, right? WRONG.

Similar to MERS and SARS, the current Wuhanic Plague has pretty much run its course. It has just taken a lot longer because unlike MERS and SARS, the CCP managed to engineer toxins on the.spike of the rhinovirus delivery vehicle in addition to the toxins engineered on the rodent virus payload. The spike and its toxins were then instantiated in the experimental jabs (as directed by Fauci, a working vaccine would have used a fragment of the genetic sequence between the 5’ end and the S1 region of the spike to capture the coding for the viral envelope, AND the CCP was unable to engineer toxins onto that portion of the rhinovirus delivery vehicle) greatly delaying the natural base pair deletion mutation process that will result in the extinction of this particular Franken-virus.

Meanwhile, Fauci continues unabated in his efforts to make Mengele look like Mother Theresa by funding additional gain of function research with the CCP, who are building more bio research labs with ineffective security measures, and getting smarter about how to make their bio-weapons deadlier thanks to all the data they have obtained from 23 and me,, and other genealogy “research” sources.

Trace the arc from MERS and SARS to the current Wuhanic Plague to get an idea as to how much more virulent the next CCP bioweapon will be. Then increase your estimate by a few orders of magnitude, and you will be close to what will happen.

Based on MERS, SARS, the current bioweapon, and the six other times we have gone to China and helped them clean up after a release from their labs, we probably have less than a year before the next accidental or deliberate release by the CCP. IF we cannot immediately seal our borders and cut off all trade and interactions with China (our economy will survive just fine, foreign trade is less than. 15% of GDP, making us essentially a “closed” economy anyway, the Chinese economy will be obliterated), the results will be far worse than smallpox, the Spanish flu, and the current CCP sh*tshow combined.

The good news:

Due to how the bioweapons are created, and just as with MERS, SARS, the Wuhanic Plague, and the six other accidental “spills,” Azithromycin, Hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin, Doxycycline, steroids, D3, Zinc, et al, will continue to be effective treatments (as Fauci well knew, see his emails), providing you are willing to curbstomp any politician, bureaucrat, doctor, pharmacist, or liberal who attempts to get between you and those treatments.

Wise individuals will stock up now.

Also in that comment thread was this link to 30 Facts You Need To Know: Your Covid Cribsheet.  Every one of them is linked to at least one source document. I’ve been pretty extreme with the Covid reading for over 18 months now, and I learned several new things, especially about the illegal (coerced or fraudulent) use of DNRs in hospitals and nursing homes. That’s some serious heinous shit right there, and if you’ve doubted that this whole thing is about global population elimination and wealth centralization into the pockets of the few, then this information will give you pause. Or convince you. And break your heart and sicken your soul. And it went on all over the world. And perhaps is STILL going on.

And the newly created verb of the day (VoD) is “de-assing” (or to “unass"). Love it.


High Tech Chicken News

Boy, this sure sounds appetizing. Researchers have figured out how to use a 3D printer to make blobs from mashed chicken, then fry them up with laser beams. Mmm, mmm, I can’t wait.

Who hasn’t dreamt of coming home after a long day and simply pressing a few buttons to get a hot, home-cooked 3D-printed meal, courtesy of one’s digital personal chef? It might make microwaves and conventional frozen TV dinners obsolete. Engineers at Columbia University are trying to make that fantasy a reality, and they’ve now figured out how to simultaneously 3D print and cook layers of pureed chicken, according to a recent paper published in the journal npj Science of Food.


A Long Slow Swim To The Car Dealer, An Afternoon In The Waiting Room

My service appointment for my Mazda was yesterday at 3pm. The dealership is over in PA, so it’s a 30 minute drive, highway the whole way. Except we had another Great Deluge rainstorm yesterday. I put the new tires I ordered in the trunk and left extra early. It was barely raining, just a fine sprinkle. It takes me about 90 seconds to leave here, go down the hill and get on the highway. Before I got as far as the next exit, 3 miles west, the sky had unzipped, visibility was down to maybe 50 yards, and traffic was almost at a standstill. And in mid-afternoon it’s mostly trucks. So it was a thrilling crawl all the way out there, but the rain had let up to merely heavy by the time I pulled in, right on time. Took me almost an hour. When I first hit the traffic, I went to pull up Waze on my phone, to see how bad things were. And that’s when I realized I had left my phone on the dining table. Oops.

I was there almost 4 hours, sitting around in the empty waiting room, with a muted TV playing endless episodes of a terrible game show from the 70s. Match Game PM? It’s was so old that Betty White still had light brown hair. There wasn’t a magazine in the place (because Covid!!) but I did find the Boy Scout handbooks from 1940 and 1944 to read. My goodness, how times have changed, how scouting has changed, and not for the better.

Oil change, fluid and filter check, got my new tires installed, new wipers, lube and tighten the bits here and there, check battery etc. Got a 4 wheel alignment done, first one since the car was new in early 2017. Might not have been necessary, but it seemed like a good idea. They came and talked to me; the brakes were worn down to nothing. Gak. I knew they were going; cars are built these days with an assumption that they’ll be leased for 3 years/36K miles, so the tires, brakes, rotors last about that long. New brakes and rotors, ka-ching!! At least the shocks and struts are in great shape. For now.

Several more intense rain squalls came through in the time I was there, but it was only lightly raining by the time my car was ready. Paid the bill, ouch. It started raining harder the moment I got back on the highway, of course. So I drove home carefully, noting that the new tires were every so much better in every way than the old OEM tires. Handling is instant and sharp, they ride nice, they didn’t hydroplane at all. And the brakes were Right Now.

So I’m poor but happy. Got home, hungry and tired. Found that the mechanic had texted and emailed me a video of him going over the car, showing that the brakes were done. Never had one of those before.


Yeah, it was time for new brakes

Gee, Oops

A total non-surprise. We saw this coming back in early March. The richer you were the earlier, faster, and further you ran. Problem is, it’s worse than anyone thought at the time.

NYC Ship Sinking, Rats Long Gone

New York City is home to 118 billionaires, more than any other American city. New York City is also home to nearly one million millionaires, more than any other city in the world. Among those millionaires some 8,865 are classified as “high net worth,” with more than $30 million each.

They pay the taxes. The top one percent of NYC taxpayers pay nearly 50 percent of all personal income taxes collected in New York. Personal income tax in the New York area accounts for 59 percent of all revenues. Property taxes add in more than a billion dollars a year in revenue, about half of that generated by office space.


The budget for a city as complex as New York is a mess of federal, state, and local funding sources. It can be sliced and diced many ways, but the one that matters is the starkest: the people and companies who pay for New York’s poor are leaving even as the city is already facing a $7.4 billion tax revenue hit from the initial effects of the coronavirus. The money is there; New York’s wealthiest individuals have increased their net worth by $44.9 billion during the pandemic. It’s just not here.


While overall only five percent of residents left as of May, in the city’s very wealthiest blocks residential population decreased by 40 percent or more. The higher-earning a neighborhood is, the more likely it is to have emptied out. Even the amount of trash collected in wealthy neighborhoods has dropped, a tell-tale sign no one is home. A real estate agent told me she estimates about a third of the apartments even in my mid-range 300 unit building are empty.


Fewer than one-tenth of Manhattan office workers came back to the workplace a month after New York gave businesses the green light to return to the buildings they ran from in March. Having had several months to notice what not paying Manhattan office rents might do for their bottom line, large companies are leaving.

The ‘Rona Song

Leave it Country music to be perfectly topical and metaphorical at the same time

When the dogwoods start to bloom
And the crickets hum their tune
That’s usually about the time
That I feel most alive

But the news has all been bad
And the whole world seems so sad
I ain’t had much else going on
So I sat down and wrote this song

I miss my mom, I miss my dad
I miss the road, I miss my band
Giving hugs and shaking hands
It’s a mystery I suppose
Just how long this thing goes
But there’ll be crowds and there’ll be shows
And there will be light after dark
Someday when we aren’t six feet apart

Follow Me !

One of the benefits of our universally computer driven modern world is package tracking. Mated with theoretically optimized routes and warehousing, we now can get our deliveries much faster than in decades past. For the impatient, most of the deliver services allow you track your boxes or letters step by step as they wend their way in your direction. [ OTOH, this also allows you to watch the Post Office send your stuff all over the country willy-nilly, leave it at distribution centers for days or weeks at a time, and sometimes take days to move something just 7 miles from one center to the next, and then take a full week to deliver it a whole 42 miles away. Sorry, my pet peeve, after recently pulling my hair out when a letter took more than a month to get delivered. Just wait until the whole country tries to vote by mail this November. Guaranteed disaster. ]

Now UPS has brought out “Follow Me”, a real time, self-updating, GPS driven mapping application, that let’s you see the big brown truck driving all over with your package in it. Not sure if this is going to help or hurt, because most people won’t realize that there are 300 other boxes in that truck, and yours is almost guaranteed to be last in line. It was already a bit frustrating just following the data, watching my box go from Florida to Edison NJ in hardly over a day, but then on to Allentown PA, right past my home, and then have to go on to another truck to come back to NJ days later and to get delivered ... later today?  Maybe. “Out for delivery” for 3 days? Oy vey.

eye candy, high plains edition


I thought I posted this the other day, but it seems to have evaporated. Whatevs.

Anyway, this is actress Kelsey Asbille Chow. She had a small but regular role in the One Tree Hill drama a few years back, and was in the 2017 film Wind River. Currently she has a supporting role on Paramount’s cowboy drama / Kevin Costner vehicle Yellowstone.

We watch Yellowstone, it’s great, and it’s interesting to see her character developing from a whiny liberal into someone more normal. That’s going to be long journey. She is super attractive though.

Flowers For Algernon?

Leftist InstaHate For COVID Flower Cure

because Trump mentioned it


Funny, I kind of thought it was the President’s job to keep people aware of new possibilities and to give them even temporary hope. But the Left may be right on this one. Like the blind squirrel ...

Most Americans have been praying for a cure to the Chinese Communist Party virus. Such a prospect turns out to be horrifying, however, if you are a Deep State bureaucrat, someone invested in open-ended and lucrative research into unpromising medicines or vaccines and/or a political opponent of President Trump.

Hence the vehemently hostile response of a leftist publication called Axios to information about Oleandrin, a natural supplement that has proven in clinical experiments and limited human trials in Texas to crush the CCP virus. Rather than celebrate this development and call for an urgent effort to validate such findings with widespread, life-saving trials, Axios touted the uninformed criticisms of naysayers determined to snuff further work on this apparent breakthrough.

To the alarm of some government health officials, President Trump has expressed enthusiasm for the Food and Drug Administration to permit an extract from the oleander plant to be marketed as a dietary supplement or, alternatively, approved as a drug to cure COVID-19, despite lack of proof that it works.

Driving the news: The experimental botanical extract, oleandrin, was promoted to Trump during an Oval Office meeting in July. It’s embraced by Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson and MyPillow founder and CEO Mike Lindell, a big Trump backer, who recently took a financial stake in the company that develops the product.

OMG, if Mike Lindell is behind it, you know it’s deathly anathema.

Oleandrin is an extract from the oleander plant. Researchers have suggested that it could be useful to treat cancer because of the way it affects cells, and that it could enhance the effects of other cancer therapies.

Professor Sharon Lewin, the director of the Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity at the University of Melbourne, is an international authority on antiviral drugs and has a laboratory working on COVID-19.
Asked about oleandrin’s potential efficacy as a COVID-19 treatment, Lewin told Axios, “Oleandrin looks to have antiviral activity at high doses in a test tube model. You’d certainly want to see more work done on this before even contemplating a human trial.”

A July 2020 study from the University of Texas at Galveston shows, in a laboratory setting, that oleandrin can inhibit the coronavirus in monkey kidney cells. This study has not been peer reviewed and one of the authors of the study, Robert Newman, is chairman of Phoenix Biotechnology’s scientific advisory board — the company developing the oleandrin product.

The bottom line: Scientists around the world are in a race for cures, treatments and vaccines for COVID-19. Government regulators are investigating hundreds of products. When a biotech executive like Whitney can take his case directly to the president, it casts doubt over the scientific rigor of the drug development process.

From the research study:

Using Vero cells, we found that prophylactic oleandrin administration at concentrations down to 0.05 μg/ml exhibited potent antiviral activity against SARS-CoV-2, with an 800 fold reduction in virus production, and a 0.1 μg/ml dose resulted in a greater than 3,000-fold reduction in infectious virus production. The EC50values were 11.98ng/ml when virus output was measured at 24 hours post-infection, and 7.07ng/ml measured at 48 hours post-infection. Therapeutic (post-infection) treatment up to 24 hours after infection of Vero cells also reduced viral titers, with the 0.1 μg/ml dose causing greater than 100-foldreductions as measured at 48 hours, and the 0.05 μg/ml dose resulting in a 3578-fold reduction.The potent prophylactic and therapeutic antiviral activities demonstrated here strongly support the further development of oleandrin to reduce the severity of COVID-19 and potentially also to reduce spread by persons diagnosed early after infection.

In years past the FDA has been dinged for major slow walking and foot dragging when it comes to testing and approving new medicines. Many drugs are available to the rest of the world that are not yet available to us. With this pandemic that slowness has become an issue, but I don’t think the best idea is to throw caution to the wind and let anything fly. That way leads to snake oil. There has to be some level of significant proper, fair, testing.

OTOH, the Axios article does mention how this could easily be marketed as an herbal supplement, which could NOT focus on any curative ability. To which there’s an easy work around; “We’re NOT ALLOWED to mention that this cures Covid, and thus cannot recommend a dose of 2 pills a day for 2 weeks. This product is for dietary supplemental use only, and we bear no responsibility for it’s use in any other manner.” kind of advertising.

OTTH, shouldn’t President Trump know by now when to keep his fat mouth shut?

Oleandir is poisonous !!! !! !

Consumption of even one Nerium oleander leaf can be fatal. Onset of toxicity occurs several hours following consumption. Symptoms include vomiting, abdominal pain, cyanosis, hypotension, hypothermia, vertigo, respiratory paralysis and death.

However, a carefully controlled tea made from the flowers could be an effective cancer and AIDS treatment. But more trials are needed!!

A hot water extract of the plant, known as Anvirzel™, has been developed as a potential treatment for cancer, AIDS, and congestive heart failure. It consists of a mixture of oleandrin and the glycone oleandrigenin. Experiments suggest that a combination of Anvirzel and cisplatin may be more effective than cisplatin monotherapy . In an earlier study, Anvirzel appeared safe in humans when injected intramuscularly, although adverse effects such as injection site pain, fatigue, and other GI symptoms were reported.

Anvirzel™ is not an approved cancer treatment in the United States. Until more data regarding its efficacy and toxicity are available, this product should not be used outside of clinical trials.

Anvirzel may be a modern version of a medicinal extract of oleander that goes back to the dawn of history.

Historical records prove that Oleander plant has healing powers; thus it was highly regarded by the Mesopotamians in the 15th century B.C. During the age of the Babylonians up to the Romans it was used as a relieved for hangovers. To the Arabs it has better worth since the plant was used for cancer medication in the 8th century A.D.

OTOH, the Romans also used it to commit suicide.

I looked up the entry at Wiki ... and I think I’ll pass on this one. There may be too much risk in a cure made from just a little bit of deadly poison.

The Death Of NYC?

This is what happens when you elect a communist as mayor. One who encourages rioting and lawlessness. Riots after weeks of extended lockdown. Retail is dying. Populations are fleeing. Violence is everywhere, at unprecedented levels. It’s anarchy and depression.

Beirut DeBlasio


De Blasio’s New York has finally hit an all-time low: the once bustling city is now on the verge of looking like a demilitarized zone. Between the pandemic and the riots in the city, iconic 5th Avenue now looks more like a dystopian nightmare in a recently shot video posted to Twitter.

The video follows a car driving down a deserted 5th Avenue, with almost all of the area’s high end stores boarded up and shut down. There are few people seen on what is usually a busy street.

“Look at everything. Everything’s boarded up. Even the hotel. Boarded up,” the video’s narrator, who is obviously fed up with how the city looks, says.

He continues: “This is all Manhattan, boarded up. Have you ever seen Manhattan look like this? The media will not report this.”

“Everything boarded up. They don’t want to show this to you people because they’re afraid. Saks 5th Avenue - boarded up from end to end. They put up barbed wire. Everywhere you see boards, windows are gone. Look at New York City - what happened,” he says.

The video runs over 2 minutes and shows dozens of boarded up businesses.

Check the video. Manhattan is boarded up. Block after block of high-end retail closed down and barricaded.

This isn’t exactly new. Similar video from more than a month ago.

No, it’s not a war zone — it’s Manhattan.

Video shows once-bustling Big Apple streets nearly deserted and dotted with boarded-up, spray-painted and bashed-in buildings after days of looting.

The footage taken Tuesday and Wednesday in Midtown and Soho shows the windows of popular stores shattered while others — such as Burberry, Sephora and Sunglasses Hut — are covered in plywood to protect against looters.


Only a handful of masked pedestrians and police officers are seen walking on eerily empty sidewalks. Some plywood panels put up by shops were tagged with graffiti reading, “Justice for George Floyd” — the black man who died after a white Minneapolis police officer pinned him to the ground for nearly nine minutes.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, many Big Apple retailers have been closed for months prior to protests over Floyd’s death.

These riots happened at the end of May ...

Sidewalks across the SoHo neighborhood, Union Square and Fifth Avenue were covered in broken glass. Multiple police cars had been burnt to nothing but ashes. Stores, including a Duane Reade, Urban Outfitters and Swatch, were looted. Banks were ravaged. An Equinox gym had been broken in to. Graffiti covered retailers’ logos up and down some of the glitziest shopping districts, which normally would be hosting a hotbed of tourist activity this time of year.

The New York Police Department has since said it arrested almost 350 people Saturday evening, following protests across parts of Harlem, Brooklyn and Staten Island. NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea said in a press conference held Sunday that more than 30 officers suffered minor injuries due to clashes with demonstrators.

It’s now the middle of August. More than 11 weeks later. And these businesses are still closed, still boarded up. Whatever stock that wasn’t looted has been sold online.

Do you really think these storefronts are coming back? Even if the beneficent dictator of NYC allows them to open, with 25% customer capacity and ridiculously paranoid levels of isolation and plexiglass protection inside the stores? Somehow, I kind of doubt it.

Greatest city in the world, killed by policy in half a year. This was not an accident.

Very Funny Officer

So I got another ticket yesterday. Me and my red car manage to get pulled over a couple times a year. Yes, I’m an inveterate speeder, but I do it properly. I don’t tailgate, I don’t cut people off, I use my turn signals, I almost pass anyone on the right, and of course my car is in perfect working order and my papers are current. And I don’t go flying around corners on two wheels, or anything close to reckless driving. I’m just an impatient driver, like everyone else in the state.

In NJ, everyone speeds. Everyone. Nearly everywhere. The only place we make up for it is in those 25mph zones near schools, parks, and downtown. People generally do about 17 in those.

NJ has a scheme in place on the highways. They “let” you drive 65mph, but fines are doubled. Should there be a traffic cone by the side of the road, or a permanent sign saying that bit of highway is also a construction zone, fines are doubled again. So getting a speeding ticket on the highway can be a darn costly experience.

Generally, highway traffic moves at 75mph in good conditions, even in the slow lane, but on the weekends it flies. 85 is typical, 95 is not unheard of, with cars maybe two lengths apart traveling in packs.

And NJ keeps points for 5 years, with a big long list of how many points for whichever of the 65 or so moving violations they have. Get more than 6 in a 3 year period, and get an extra fine to pay. There are a fair number of 0 point offenses, but they are not on the list. Good luck trying to find them, although we all know that the seatbelt one and the red light camera one are no-pointers.

How many points are on your license? Like many other states, you have to pay the DMV to find this out. Gosh, wouldn’t you think that this would be part of their regular job? Available online for free, given that this is a microscopic database inquiry? Heck no.

But there’s a game involved. There are a good number of offenses that don’t have points. Just a fine. So most cops short circuit the plea bargaining process, and give you a break and just write you up for some 0 point offense. It puts donut money in their coffers, nobody wastes time going to court, an you just go online and pay the fine with your credit card.

So I got pulled over for doing 85 in a 65 zone on a demarcated highway. I wasn’t racing, or playing artful dodger, or zooming down the road alone. I was just cruising along with traffic. The Statey did his job in about 2 minutes and I was back on my way.

He wrote me up for the 0 point offense of Delaying Traffic.

Haha, very funny.

Rhubarb !!!

She came home from work with an armload of rhubarb that a coworker had brought in from their garden.

I haven’t had rhubarb in ... probably 45 years. Pretty sure my parents used to grow it in the vegetable garden, but that’s loooong ago in the past.

So we’re making strawberry rhubarb pie, and, since we have so much of the stuff, we’re making a strawberry rhubarb crumble as well. Both are a great excuse to get hold of some good vanilla ice cream.

Rhubarb has an unusual taste, but it’s one that I’ve always loved. Can’t wait to get to baking things up and trying them out. Might even have enough to send her to work Monday with another crumble.


Oh goody, and I guess I’d better go look outside. Amazon says my copy of Law of Nations and John Locke’s Two Treaties of Government were delivered today. Along with my new Solo 2L hand sprayer, as the old one died after a decade of use.

Fauci Gets One Right

Fauci: Voting In Person OK If Social Distancing Done

Dr. Anthony Fauci, chief medical adviser for the White House coronavirus task force, said this week that there is “no reason” Americans are not able to vote in person for the 2020 presidential election in November.

Fauci emphasized that voting in person would not need to be avoided as long as voters followed CDC guidelines and maintained social distancing.

“I think if carefully done, according to the guidelines, there’s no reason that I can see why that not be the case,” Fauci told ABC News. “If you go and wear a mask, if you observe the physical distancing, and don’t have a crowded situation, there’s no reason why shouldn’t be able to do that.”

Fauci noted, however, that those who are at high-risk if exposed to coronavirus or have a compromised immune system should stay indoors and use mail-in voting.

OK, 99% right. I think most absentee ballots should be dropped off well ahead of time at the polling centers, logged in, and signed for ... once proper ID and voter registration is checked. The USPS is highly leftist, so I would not trust them too much.

toldja so

As reliable as the coming dawn, the willfully stupid and the left biased media and “the experts” have once again yelled real loud to subvert the proper understanding of the law. And that noise will do the job.

I said it yesterday: This application of the Constitution will be ignored and denied by the media and everyone else. Because “birthers”. People are so terrified of being called a name that they are willing to ignore the law, the history of the law, and the true meaning and intent of the law. That’s beyond sad. It’s beyond cowardly. It’s apathetic, pathetic, and bathetic.

And here it is.

Trump slammed for not rejecting conspiracy theory Kamala Harris is ineligible for vice presidency
Biden campaign calls Trump comments ‘abhorrent’

That’s right; it’s a conspiracy theory. And he’s abhorrent. Because he referred to a statement made by somebody about the natural born issue, and then said he didn’t know if that was correct or not. So slam him for even implying that this could be a problem.

And then the lies come out by the bucketful. And the overwhelming noise of indignation and implicit raycis drown out the truth, once again. We are totally fucking doomed.

President Trump would not reject a conspiracy theory Thursday that Kamala Harris is ineligible to serve as vice president because her parents were born outside the United States.

Asked about the unfounded and widely refuted claims during a press briefing at the White House, Trump responded, “I heard it today that she doesn’t meet the requirements” before adding, “I have no idea if that’s right.”

Harris is a United States citizen born in California in 1964, making her eligible to serve as president or vice president under the Constitution. [ Fox you are wrong ]

However, a professor of law at Chapman University, John C. Eastman, wrote a piece for Newsweek this week after she was named to the Democratic ticket questioning whether Harris is a “natural born citizen” because her mother was born in India and her father was born in Jamaica.

[ Editor’s note: Some readers reacted strongly to this essay, seeing it as an attempt to ignite a racist conspiracy theory. ]
The fact that Senator Kamala Harris has just been named the vice presidential running mate for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has some questioning her eligibility for the position. The 12th Amendment provides that “no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States.” And Article II of the Constitution specifies that “[n]o person except a natural born citizen...shall be eligible to the office of President.” Her father was (and is) a Jamaican national, her mother was from India, and neither was a naturalized U.S. citizen at the time of Harris’ birth in 1964. That, according to these commentators, makes her not a “natural born citizen"—and therefore ineligible for the office of the president and, hence, ineligible for the office of the vice president.

Newsweek also ran a counter essay by noted lawyer Eugene Volokh. IMO, as its typical for greasy lawyers, and all lawyers are greasy because the law is merely a tool to them, and not something held sacrosanct, Volokh makes his counter from the wrong direction. He’s throwing shade and puffing smoke, and emphasizing aspects that have no real bearing. Argument by non sequitur. 

Some people have argued that Kamala Harris is ineligible to be vice president of the United States. The Constitution requires presidents and vice presidents to be “natural-born citizens”; Harris was born in the U.S., but her parents (who had come to the U.S. to study) weren’t U.S. citizens at the time. Does “natural-born citizen” include Harris, and others like her?

It does. “Natural-born citizen” was a familiar legal phrase to the Framers—an adaptation of the English term “natural-born subject.” Sir William Blackstone, an English treatise writer who (in Justice Scalia’s words) was “the Framers’ accepted authority on English law and the English Constitution,” explained:

Natural-born subjects are such as are born within the dominions of the crown of England, that is, within the ligeance, or as it is generally called, the allegiance of the king. ...The children of aliens, born here in England, are, generally speaking, natural-born subjects, and entitled to all the privileges of such.

It’s possible that “natural-born citizen” has since been broadened to include children of U.S. citizens born overseas (a 1790 Act of Congress specified that, “The children of citizens of the United States, that may be born beyond sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural-born citizens").

He is wrong. It is not an adaptation of natural born subject, even though natural born citizen shares two of the three words with the other concept. Oh, and that 1790 Act was overturned in 1795, which he fails to mention. Even the best lawyer is a weasel dick. They argue for or against a topic. Searching for and declaring the actual truth has nothing to do with it.

What is a natural born citizen? It is someone born in this country whose parents are already citizens of this country. Period. Full stop. And that’s all there is to it.

I am a natural born citizen because I was born in this country and both my parents were born here as well, and their parents were citizens when they were born which thus made them natural born citizens. All my grandparents were born here too, although one of them might not have qualified as natural born because her parents came here from Germany, and I have no idea who things worked in the 1890s and I don’t know if they were naturalized citizens by the time granny popped out. But that was generations ago, so it isn’t germane.

It seems we go through this every presidential election cycle. I think what is needed is a SCOTUS decision. And that will never happen, because an honest decision, true to original intent would also torpedo the anchor baby concept that’s been around for 4 decades now. And probably squash the legality of dual citizenship too. And we do not have brave, honest, true Americans on the Supreme Court who are willing or able to make bold, proper decisions. Without the slightest doubt in my mind, this should be a 5 minute, 9-0 decision, made for clarification purposes alone - not delayed forever until some case with standing worms it’s way upwards.

I’m going to add this to my list of life truths:

•  Sulfur is properly spelled sulphur.

•   Eohippus is the Dawn Horse. No other taxonomy name is correct. There is no relation to the rock hyrax, so putting the original horse in the order Hyracotherium was a mistake.

•  The big long dinosaur was a brontosaurus

•  A shark is not a fish, dammit, it is an elasmobranch. Real fish have scales, gill pumps, and a swim bladder. Creating a new intermediate order called “bony fishes” to include both is cheating, especially if you don’t also include dolphins who, by that redefinition should also be fish. Fish who are mammals. No, this is wrong.

•  Ok, I now grudgingly nearly accept that Pluto is not an actual planet, “merely” a dwarf planet or planetoid, because somebody either moved the definition goalposts or because science has advanced enough to go there and find out how big the thing actually is. Pluto 1473 miles across, 2/3 the size of our moon. Mercury still counts as a planet. Mercury is 1516 miles across, a whopping big 43 miles larger. Oh puh-lease. So my grudgingly is very grudgingly. OTOH, given that Pluto has 5 moons, one moon called Chiron which is half the size of Pluto, perhaps it should be called a double planet or a multi-planet.

•  A natural born citizen is someone who is born within the desmenses of a country and both of whose parents are already citizens of that country.

I got so worked up about this yesterday I went out an bought a copy of Law of Nations, and while I was at the digital bookstore I got a copy of the writings of John Locke.

Of course she isn’t, but you’re uninformed and intellectually lazy so she’ll get away with it

Here we should be going again with the natural born citizen thing. And just like Obama, Kamala Harris does not qualify as such.  Not that most anyone else can understand the concept, or knows that it is very important to care about this and why. So should be going won’t even get off the ground. This will not even be brought up in passing, much less discussed, debated, and ruled on. It. Does. Not. Exist. Because ... raycis!!!

Les ancres ne sont pas les naturelles

( The anchors are not the naturals )

“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.”

14th Amendment, Section 1, 1868

It is abundantly clear that “subject to the jurisdiction thereof” means exclusively subject to the jurisdiction thereof, which means not in any way beholden to the whims or powers of a foreign government. This was clearly understood by all until fairly recently.

Yes, she was born in the USA. Neither of her parents were citizens at the time. This makes her an anchor baby. According the the 14th Amendment, anchor babies are not citizens. This isn’t a “strict” reading of the amendment, it is a plain reading thereof. Original intent is easy to find in the Congressional Record of the day. The only “reason” that they are considered such these days is due to a single footnote in the 5-4 1982 SCOTUS decision Plyer v. Doe, added to the majority opinion by Justice Brennan:

“no plausible distinction with respect to Fourteenth Amendment ‘jurisdiction’ can be drawn between resident aliens whose entry into the United States was lawful, and resident aliens whose entry was unlawful.”

This weakening of the meaning of jurisdiction within the 14th - that it sees the term as meaning subject to the laws of this nation, and not solely subject to those laws (ie not being also subject to the laws of some other country, as is the legal situation of illegal immigrants) - was a part of the Plyer case, which dealt with Texas’s claim that school funding should not be granted to illegal immigrant children. And of course, Brennan’s footnote comment overlooks that such illegals have no right to be here at all.


Harris’ parents were a citizen of India and a citizen of Jamaica. While she herself was born in California, and shortly thereafter went to Canada, where she spent nearly all her formative years, she qualifies as a citizen by the anchor baby misconception. Being a citizen does not make you a natural born citizen.

The entire concept of natural born citizen comes from a French book called The Laws of Nations, which was written in 1758 and is the only book or exterior document referenced in the US Constitution. It was used extensively by the Framers, far more than the code of English Common Law, which they strongly felt did not apply to the USA, although they borrowed large parts of it ... as our own law.  Anyway, in The Laws of Nations it says:

“Les naturels, ou indigenes, sont ceux qui sont nes dans le pays, de parens citoyens”

A direct translation is “The natural, or indigenous, are those who are born in the country, of parents who are citizens”.

While there was an 1797 update to the english version of the book, which clarified that line to read “The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens.”

This is a rather strict definition. To be a natural born citizen, you need to be born here and both your parents need to be citizens when you are born. Not just born here, and not with just one parent a citizen, regardless of where you were born.

Later extensions to the concept allowed “here” to include territories of the country (eg Guam and Puerto Rico), areas controlled by the country (eg military bases), land considered part of the country that was in other countries (eg consulates and embassies), and things controlled by the government of the country (eg military aircraft and ships that happen to be outside the confines of the country at the moment of birth). This is how John McCain, born at a military base in another country, was deemed a valid candidate.

[ “naturels” is the masculine form of the word, “naturelles” is the feminine form. French is so sexist, but both words mean the same thing. ]

Merely being born to two citizen parents is insufficient. Merely being born within our country is insufficient. This is a precise and sharply focused concept, and about the only time it every applies is when someone is considering running for President or Vice President, although it should probably apply to any elected representative who could possibly be in the chain of succession.

This application of the Constitution will be ignored and denied by the media and everyone else. Because “birthers”. People are so terrified of being called a name that they are willing to ignore the law, the history of the law, and the true meaning and intent of the law. That’s beyond sad. It’s beyond cowardly. It’s apathetic, pathetic, and bathetic.

Read more if you want, in great detail with clear explanations of case law over the years, plus how we’ve now been lead astray, when and by whom:

Walter White Moved To Holland?

Netherlands Cops Find Giant Crack Cocaine Lab In School


Dutch police have uncovered what they described as the biggest cocaine laboratory ever discovered in the Netherlands, leading to the arrest of 17 suspects from Colombia, Turkey and the Netherlands.

The drug lab was hidden at a former horse riding school in Nijeveen, some 75 miles from Amsterdam, police said in a statement Tuesday.

Police raided the riding school on Friday, discovering tens of thousands of liters of chemicals and 220 pounds of crack cocaine. Sleeping quarters and recreation areas were also found at the site.
The facility was equipped to produce up to 440 pounds of cocaine a day, officials said.

“This is the largest cocaine laboratory ever found in the Netherlands,” police chief Andre van Rijn said in the statement.

Van Rijn said the lab was equipped to produce 330-440 pounds (150-200 kilograms) of cocaine a day, with a street value of $5.3-9.4 million (4.5-8 million euros).

TLH? Typical Leftist Hypocrites

This sounds like it could be one of those urban legends.

How Dare You!!

An anonymous poster on Reddit’s “Am I the A--h---” subreddit said he started a meat-eating club at his job in response to a coworker’s vegan-only club.

He claimed that one of his colleagues started a vegan dinner club exclusively for their coworkers following a vegan, vegetarian or pescatarian diet. Other coworkers “will not be able to join the club,” the poster said the group’s “statement of purpose” read.

In response, the poster claimed that he and some other meat-eating coworkers started a burger and steak club to go out and try new restaurants each week. They only allowed meat-eaters to join. However, members of the vegan club filed a complaint with the company’s human resources department.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.
