More Unhinged Leftists

While Dining Out With A Rapist’s Parents, Oregon Teacher Goes Off On His Victim

An Oregon teacher was arrested after police say she hurled “various expletives” at a sexual assault victim after approaching the woman in a restaurant last week.

Trisha Ebbs, 50, was arrested for disorderly conduct after police were called to a “Hops N Drops” on Keizer Station Boulevard Friday over reports that the high school teacher verbally attacked the victim of a 2017 sexual assault.

Keizer Police were dispatched to the restaurant around 9:35 p.m. after Ebbs approached a table where the 20-year-old girl, her father and a third individual were sitting. Ebbs had been having dinner with the parents of the male suspect in that case and recognized the victim.

No, the male is NOT a suspect. He is the convicted perpetrator of this sexual assault and another one.

According to police, Ebbs “walked to where the woman was seated and began screaming at her, calling her various expletives attributable to Trisha Ebbs’ belief about the circumstances of the 2017 crime.”

The girl’s father pushed Ebbs and was then shoved by “a group of males” with her.

Witnesses told police that Ebbs was “on top of them.” The altercation ended when employees separated the group.

The relationship between Ebbs and the male suspect’s parents was not immediately known. According to police, the suspect, now 21, was charged and subsequently convicted as an adult for sexual assault against this woman and a second minor female in 2017.

Ebbs has been placed on administrative leave.



And, AS ALWAYS, let’s get the actual details of an American news story from the British press. Or at least the CCTV video and some frames from it. To which I added some identifying captions:

In the video at the link you can see Ebbs and the rapist’s mom coming back to their table, probably from a visit to the loo. She sees the victims at their table and charges right over and starts her rant, right in their faces. The victims father gets up and pushes her away, at which point the four males at Ebbs’ table mob the guy while Ebbs continues her tirade. Eventually the rapist’s mom comes over and shoos one of the guys away, presumably her husband. Then she picks up all their stuff, ready to beat a hasty exit.

I don’t have any details of the rape cases. Perhaps they were violent assaults, perhaps they were statutory offenses with eager willing “victim” participants.

Antifa NYC Subway “Action”

NYC Subway Uprising: Antifa Ready To Destroy To Get More Fascism

Is this for real?

Police in New York are increasing their presence in subways Friday after members of the far-left Antifa movement called for a mass protest against law enforcement and transit fares.

The Police Benevolent Association of New York City issued a strong warning ahead of Friday’s Antifa demonstration, urging New Yorkers to “pay close attention.”

“This is [the] true endgame of the anti-police movement, an end of all policing & destruction of public order,” the group said in a tweet. “Our members have spent their careers—and in some cases given their lives—to bring public safety back to NYC. We can’t go backwards.”

Days earlier, an Antifa-backed social media account shared a video of three masked individuals accompanied by a tweet that read: “The streets are ours. The trains our ours. The walls are ours. This moment is ours.”

The minute-long video showing individuals vandalizing public property and jumping subway turnstiles, calls for supporters of the group to “meet up” and rally against law enforcement and transit fares.

“We encourage you to link up with your friends, your family, and think of the ways you can move in affinity to build and f--- s--- up on J31 all day long,” an unidentified individual said, referencing Friday’s date.

Claiming racism, these fools want the subway to be free and unguarded, with the platforms open to any and all unlicensed vendors and street musicians. Result: instant filth, depravity, and violence. And if the subway is “free”, then the taxpayers will have to foot the bill. And that means an even larger level of government control. If that is even possible, seeing that the feds, the state, the city, and the private government called the MTA already have stringent oversight. Regulated to death and beyond. But that’s the built in hypocrisy of antifa: they claim to be against fascism, which is a form of oppressive heavy duty government, but what they really want is even more government. Violent nanny-staters. Petulant spoiled children crying for more mommy while pitching tantrums and hiding behind masks.

“The mood for J31 is simple: f--- your $2.75. No cops on the MTA, free transit, no harassment period and full accessibility… F--- the police.”

A Facebook group run by the same account shared an event that argued that the addition of 500 more MTA police officers is “a declaration of war against our communities.”

“That money should not be invested in the harassing and brutalizing of Black and brown folks. It should go toward making the MTA free, well maintained, and accessible to all.”

The group continued that it would use a “diversity of tactics” to have their demands met. These demands include eliminating police presence from the subways, free transit, ending the harassment of “vendors and performers” and “full accessibility for people of varying abilities.”

A spokesperson with the NYPD told Fox News in an email Friday morning that it “is aware of the demonstration and will have an adequate police presence in place.”

You know that they are “justified” in this protest; those poor “Black and brown folks” (brown folks don’t deserve a capital B I guess) are so harassed and brutalized; they already comprise about 85% of all fare jumpers. Pinko Mayor “Bill DeBlasio” (not his real name) has already decriminalized fare jumping.

Naturally, Democratic Socialist and anarcho-Marxist AOC supports them fully.

Is this uprising even happening, or is Fox News trying to push people’s panic button by raising a few Tweets from a bunch of jackwad teenagers to national news? Are they purposefully trying to make this happen by giving it front page press?

Oh Yeah, Diversity Is Our Strength

Irish Parents Convicted Of Female Genital Mutilation

Well, when I say Irish I really mean transplanted Somali jihadists, but let’s not let actual facts get in the way.

An African couple in Dublin has been convicted of having female genital mutilation (FGM) performed on their 21-month-old daughter, in the first such case in the Republic of Ireland.

A man and wife of African origin have been jailed after they “aided and abetted, counselled or procured” someone to perform female genital mutilation upon their 21-month-old daughter. The man has been sentenced to five-and-a-half years and his wife will serve a term of four years and nine months.

The couple, who will remain unnamed to protect the identity of the child, pleaded not guilty to procuring FGM, claiming in the trial that their daughter had suffered the injury as a result of falling onto a toy while not wearing a diaper, according to RTE.

Their version of events was disputed health professionals in the trial who argued that it was clearly a case of female genital mutilation. Sri Paran, the paediatric surgeon who performed surgery on the girl to stop the bleeding, said that the injury was not accidental.

Sentencing the African couple, Judge Elma Sheahan said that the child suffered an “appalling act of cruelty” in the “most egregious breach of trust by those presumed to be the protectors of their infant child”.

In October, Breitbart London reported that as many as 6,000 women and girls have had their genitals mutilated in Ireland, with another 3,000 currently at risk of having the gruesome procedure inflicted upon them.

[ October 2019 ] At a conference in Dublin, activists gathered to decry the practice of FGM and called for a national plan of action.
...
the numbers of girls and women cut in Europe, Australia, and North America has started to rise, due in large part to growing migration from countries in which FGM is practised.
...
One of the main issues in ridding the Ireland of FGM is that mothers are often pressured by relatives to return to their country of origin to have their daughter cut.

Easy solution: send them all back. And the ones who go back to get this evil deed done ... Hell, any of these people granted asylum there who voluntarily go back even for a visit ... no more asylum. You were allowed to stay here because you claimed your life was at risk there. If it’s safe enough for you to go back to set up an appointment with the village witch, then you no longer need asylum. Buh bye!!

If You’re This Unlearned You Shouldn’t Write The Rules

The Sound Of Silencers, Differentiating Deer, Red Hot Magazines, And An Assault Weapon Is How You Hold It

And this fool got elected to make the laws in Virginia.


Pro-Second Amendment groups fighting gun control efforts in Virginia have seized on a video showing the author of a sweeping ban fumbling over defining the “assault weapons” he wants to outlaw.

In the video, Democratic Virginia Del. Mark Levine said the biggest difference between hunting rifles and “assault weapons” is “how you hold the gun.”

Speaking at a public meeting, the author of legislation to ban AR-style guns and large, bullet-holding magazines used in semi-automatic weapons also said shooters could use several fingers to pull the trigger and that deer know the sound of a bullet shot through a “silencer” better than humans.

As audience members were heard chuckling in the background, Levine said: “In terms of the differences of the guns, the heart of the difference is how you hold the gun. It makes it a semi-automatic.” He showed his trigger finger moving, and added, “Meaning you can shoot with each finger, not like a bolt-action” rifle typically used in hunting.

Maybe this was another “parody” in the Adam Schiff school of stand-up mode. What an idiot. BTW, this guy was one of the authors of the latest gun control bill working it’s way through the Virginia legislature.

“He knows nothing about what he’s trying to ban,” said Erich Pratt, senior vice president of Gun Owners of America. “Obviously, he’s watched too many movies,” he said, noting that semi-automatic rifles and bolt-action rifles are held the same way.

Phil Van Cleave, who heads the Virginia Citizens Defense League, said, “It’s clear that he’s way out of league, and he’s the one trying to make law.”

Levine did not respond to a request for comment.

Both VCDL and GOA organized this month’s massive pro-gun rally at the Virginia Capitol in Richmond.

While the new Democratic majority has pushed through several gun control measures, efforts to OK a ban on semi-automatic rifles have not moved forward.

Well, at least Levine didn’t mention the infamous and frightening “front part that goes up”.

And I have no idea why a Virginia town hall would be displaying “flags of all nations” but not the American flag nor the Virginia flag. Probably a bunch of anti-American One Worlder commies.

Holy Hole-y

3/4 Mile Long Cartel Smuggling Tunnel Found

image

U.S. authorities discovered the longest smuggling tunnel ever found along the southwest border.

The tunnel originates in Tijuana, Mexico, near the Otay Mesa Port of Entry and extends a total of 4,309 feet long—more than three-quarters of a mile. The next longest tunnel in the U.S., discovered in San Diego in 2014, was 2,966 feet long.

“While subterranean tunnels are not a new occurrence along the California-Mexico border, the sophistication and length of this particular tunnel demonstrates the time-consuming efforts transnational criminal organizations will undertake to facilitate cross-border smuggling,” Cardell Morant, acting special agent in charge of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) San Diego, said in a press release. The investigation that led to the discovery spanned many years and involved various agencies.
A tunnel entry team agent stands by for security at a tunnel spur that went off into a different direction.

The tunnel features a complex cart and rail system, forced air ventilation, high-voltage electrical cables and panels, an elevator at the tunnel entrance and a complex drainage system, according to U.S. Border Patrol.

The tunnel is approximately 5 and a half feet tall, 2 feet wide and has an average depth of 70 feet from the surface. An offshoot of the main tunnel was discovered at around 3,500 feet into the U.S. It traveled several feet and came to an end without breaching the surface. It led agents back to the main tunnel where they discovered several hundred sandbags blocking the suspected former exit of the tunnel.

I don’t know what kind of soil this thing is in, but it’s entirely unbraced: no supports at all anywhere. And there is groundwater present.

Maybe they used children to haul their dope; I know that hole is too narrow and low for me. We’ll never know. Gah, you’d figure by now the DEA would have subterranean sensors all over the place down there. How did they never know this was being built or used?

Brexit, Stage Right

Will It Actually Happen Tomorrow, Finally?

Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage delivered his last-ever speech in Brussels as his Brexit Party MEPs waved their Union Jack flags in defiance of EU rules.

The Brexit Party leader launched a brutal attack on the bloc just days before the UK is due to leave on Friday, January 31.

He said: “This is it, the final chapter, the end of the road, a 47-year political experiment that the British have never been happy with.”

...

Mr Farage said the UK “is never coming back” as he gave his final speech at the European Parliament.

He added: “I’m not particularly happy with the agreement we’re being asked to vote on tonight but Boris has been remarkably bold in the last few months and, Ms von der Leyen, he’s promised us there will be no level playing field.

...

“What happens at 11pm this Friday, January 31 2020, marks the point of no return, once we’ve left we are never coming back and the rest, frankly, is detail.”

Earlier Mr Farage told reporters that he believes Brexit is the “beginning of the end” for the EU.

He said: “That’s because we made such a Horlicks of leaving.

“I think many of the Eurosceptic groups around Europe began to shake their heads and say ‘Oh, perhaps it is not possible to leave’.

“Now it’s actually happening, if we chart a clear path - and provided that Boris Johnson sticks to the very clear promises that he made in his manifesto - then I think all of that will change a couple of years down the line.”


So this is a kind of sorta-kinda situation? They’ll be out, free, but still have to negotiate a bunch of stuff for the next bunch of years? Whatever. Purge your nation, control your borders, and get your economy moving again. Best of luck!

Best line of Farage’s speech: “Populism turns out to be popular!”

I’m not the only one overreacting to the Wuhan thing

The whole damn world is going into lockdown, one small step at a time.

Here’s a link to the WaPo’s running list of coronavirus news.

Air flights canceled. Borders closed. North Korea bans all foreigners from entering. Sporting events in Germany and Florida canceled. Schools shut down in China. Evacuees from China being sent to Isolation Island in Australia. Oil prices impacted.

Others say this is much ado about almost nothing; right wing tinfoil hat folks know this is a world-wide commie plot; a deliberate release of an engineered, weaponized, virus to ruin the global economy to take down Trump.

You Can’t Get There From Here

ITEOTWAWKI Phase 1

United Airlines Suspends Flights To China

United Airlines is suspending some of its flights to China as coronavirus fears have led to a “decline in demand for travel” to the country.
...
On Tuesday, the airliner stated that it will be canceling flights from San Francisco International Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport, Chicago O’Hare International Airport and Washington Dulles International Airport in Virginia for the first week of February.

“Due to a significant decline in demand for travel to China, we are suspending some flights between our hub cities and Beijing, Hong Kong and Shanghai beginning Feb. 1 through Feb. 8. We will continue to monitor the situation as it develops and will adjust our schedule as needed,” said a statement to Fox News.

United Airlines, meanwhile, has also expanded its travel waivers to ticketholders scheduled to fly to Beijing, Chengdu or Shanghai before Feb. 29, waiving the change fee for any travel scheduled before that time.

United travelers with tickets to Wuhan through March 29 are also eligible for refunds — “even for nonrefundable tickets,” the airline writes.

News of the cancellations comes a day after the U.S. State Department issued a Level 3 advisory (Reconsider Travel) for China. The department further issued a Level 4 advisory (Do Not Travel) for the entire Hubei province, the capital of which is Wuhan, where the virus is believed to have originated.

Without a doubt other airlines will soon follow suit. Hell, would you even get on an airplane that has been to China lately? Even if the thing reeks of Clorox and Lysol and they wave around “Level 5 Decontamination” documents ... would you believe them? They’re screwed, and they know it. Cruise ships are no different; expect that industry to be mothballed for a few years at least. Even if you could get in your car and drive to one of those awesome resorts down Mexico way, once the New Plague hits there, will you go? Hell. No.

This epidemic is going to have a world-wide major economic impact. Tourism to the Orient is already drastically lower, losing those nations billions. As the virus spreads global travel will decrease to the newly infected areas. Within a relatively short time imports and exports will suffer as well. The tech industry will be brought to a standstill, as every computer, telephone, TV, and electronic gizmo in the world is made over there somewhere.

I really hope this is a temporary thing, an overreaction is our utterly risk-averse society. If it isn’t, we’re going to see a return to isolationism and a growth of Fortress America. A whole generation has grown up playing zombie apocalypse video games, subliminally preparing them.

Naturally everyone’s economies will tank. Every nation will have to become self-sufficient with food and fuel, and utterly averse to immigration and foreign tourism. Those that don’t will die.

I don’t know where this can go or will go. But I can envision Empty Zones, and sanitizing nuclear attacks if it really goes off the deep end and into the abyss. I can see nations breaking apart and the fall of cities chock full of welfare dependents and recent immigrants. Nightmare scenarios.

Damn, I’m just Pollyanna Sunshine, ain’t I?



UPDATE: British Airways Too

British Airways ceased all of its direct flights to and from mainland China amid the coronavirus outbreak—with the decision coming after the United Kingdom advised against “all but essential” travel to the rest of the country on Tuesday.

When logging into BA.com, the official website for the airline, it currently shows no direct flights to the country—with a posted notice, “Sorry, there are no direct flights for this route, flights with connections are below.”

“We apologize to customers for the inconvenience, but the safety of our customers and crew is always our priority,” BA said in an emailed statement to Reuters on Wednesday. “Customers due to travel to or from China in the coming days can find more information on BA.com.”

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) said the decision to advise against traveling to the rest of mainland China (not including Hong Kong and Macao) was due to the restrictions of movement placed by the government in response to the outbreak.

“It may become harder over the coming weeks for those who wish to leave China to do so,” the FCO said. “If you feel that you may want to leave China soon, you should consider making plans to do so before any further restrictions may be imposed.”



ANOTHER UPDATE: US Evacuees Sent To Military Base. Quarantine?

A plane carrying about 201 U.S. citizens evacuated from Wuhan, China—the epicenter of the deadly coronavirus—has landed in the U.S. after it was diverted Tuesday to California’s March Air Reserve Base “for the logistics that they have,” an official said.

The Boeing 747 with red and gold stripes and no passenger windows was initially headed to Ontario International Airport in California. It landed in Alaska at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport on Tuesday night—before it refueled and took off for California.  Every passenger passed the screenings.

“The whole plane erupted in cheers when the crew said, ‘Welcome home to the United States,’” Alaska’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Anne Zink said.
...
The individuals on board the flight were set to be screened before take off, monitored during the flight by medical personnel and screened again when the plane landed at a fueling stop in Anchorage, AK.

“[The passengers would be] monitored on the last leg of the flight by medical personnel on board; evaluated upon arrival at March Air Reserve Base in Riverside County, California; and then monitored for symptoms post-arrival,” the CDC added.

The lobby in the international terminal of the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport was nearly empty Tuesday afternoon, and an airport employee was seen jogging through though the facility that has closed counters for companies like Korean Air, China Airlines and Asiana Airlines.

More Deep State Connections

So John Bolton’s new book is all up in the news. He submitted it to the NSC for clearance, and what a surprise, somehow some of the content got leaked to the New York Times.

How on earth did that happen? Golly, who would have EVER thought that there’d be yet another anti-Trump coup member at that honorable and sacrosanct institution?

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman’s identical twin brother Army Lt. Col. Yevgeny Vindman, a senior ethics lawyer for the NatSec Council is in charge of reviewing book approvals, according to sources who spoke to Breitbart News.

Recall, Alexander Vindman, who leaked Trump’s call to the whistleblower because he disagreed with Trump’s foreign policy, showed up to testify in the House hearings against Trump in his uniform.

Vindman testified that his twin brother witnessed Trump officials move the transcript of Trump’s call to Zelensky to a top-secret server.

Barack Obama also used this same top-secret server to secure transcripts of his calls to foreign leaders and nobody cared. It’s only a scandal when Trump does it.

Anonymous sources conveniently leaked to the New York Times claiming former National Security Advisor John Bolton’s book manuscript accused President Trump of tying Ukraine aid to Biden investigations.

Bolton’s team pushed back in a statement Sunday night and said, “It is clear, regrettably, from The New York Times article published today that the prepublication review process has been corrupted.”

Bolton on Monday also denied coordinating with the New York Times.




Yeah. The thing about the Deep State Swamp: they’re all connected. Bolton didn’t have to coordinate with the NY Slimes. There are people who have people who will do that for him, wink wink, nudge nudge, nothing written down or even spoken out loud. It’s how the system works.

And if you buy that “regrettably ... the review process has been corrupted” BS, then I’ve got a bridge in Brooklyn you might like to purchase. This was planned and deliberate. I hope the era of plausible deniability will soon end. This was as accidental as an assassination.

I used to have the greatest respect and admiration for John Bolton, but it’s becoming apparent that he’s just another narcissistic petulant slug in the DC swamp.

Another Biden Wallowing In The Money Trough

Joe Biden’s Sister Funneled Millions Of Campaign Bucks To Her Own Firm

Hey, a post NOT about impeachment or epidemics. Sadly, that leaves the Bidens as the only news story, aside from some guy rescuing three frozen kittens up in Canada.

Valerie Biden Owens, the sister of former vice president Joe Biden (D), who served as the campaign manager for his past presidential campaigns, directed $2.5 million from “Citizens for Biden” and “Biden for President Inc.” to her own consulting firm during her brother’s 2008 presidential bid alone

This is probably legal, but just one more instance of the Biden family turning the crank of the political insider’s money machine.

Her role as a senior partner in the political messaging firm Slade White & Company coincided with her participation in Biden’s various political campaigns. She was only one of two executives – the other being Joe Slade White – at the firm and has remained the Executive Vice President for 15 years.

However, the lines between her role as leading her brother’s political campaigns and working at the firm blurred, as the firm “received large fees from the Biden campaigns that Valerie was running,” Profiles in Corruption reveals:

The firm received large fees from the Biden campaigns that Valerie was running. Two and a half million dollars in consulting fees flowed to her firm from Citizens for Biden and Biden For President Inc. during the 2008 presidential bid alone. Keep in mind that Joe Slade White & Company worked for Biden campaigns over eighteen years.

The report demonstrates a pattern, as Schweizer’s book shows, of the complex, albeit largely unknown, dynamics of the Biden family and the financial benefits reaped, which purportedly stem from the presidential hopeful’s varying positions in government throughout his life.

Hey, left handed kudos to Generous Joe who spread the wealth to as many family members as possible.

Exponential Growth Wuhan Virus

The more you have, the faster you get even more.

Today’s This Morning’s Wuhan Virus News

image

China: Coronavirus Numbers Nearly Double In One Day

New reports from the Chinese government indicate that the number of people who have been infected by the coronavirus jumped from 2,700 yesterday to over 4,500 today as the number of people who have died from the outbreak is now well over 100.

“China on Tuesday reported 25 more deaths from a new viral disease, raising the total to at least 106, as the U.S. government prepared to fly Americans out of the city at the center of the outbreak,” The Associated Press reported. “There were 1,771 new cases confirmed on Monday, raising the national total to 4,515, according to the National Health Commission. It said 976 were in serious condition.”

The Washington Post reported that “a scientific assessment of the spread of the disease, assuming an optimistic 90 percent quarantine, still predicted more than 59,000 infections and 1,500 deaths — twice the toll of the 2002-2003 SARS outbreak.”

The New York Times reported yesterday that the rapid spread of the virus led China’s communist government to expanding its quarantine to an “unprecedented scope affecting 56 million people.”

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) raised its travel warning to China to its highest-level, strongly encouraging Americans to not travel to the communist nation.

Outbreak becomes epidemic, epidemic becomes pandemic. And so on, and so on. And these are the numbers that they’re admitting to, even while they try to hide the reality by using different terminology.

Worth reading: a compilation of Tweets from an actual expert, and several other news bits on this story.

•  Dr. Dena Grayson: Having YEARS of experience developing an Ebola treatment, I was concerned about this Coronavirus Outbreak from the outset, because this coronavirus strain is very contagious, causes severe illness, and NO treatments or vaccines are available.

•  Dr. Dena Grayson: Unlike H5N1 “bird flu” (which does not spread easily between people) or SARS (which was spread by only a handful of “super spreaders”), this coronavirus DOES appear to spread easily between people, even after making the jump from an animal (this is not common).

•  Dr. Dena Grayson: In addition to being highly contagious, this novel coronavirus can cause a SEVERE infection that can kill even healthy people. It’s rare to see BOTH of these (bad) attributes in the same novel virus. Usually, it’s one or the other.

The Chinese Embassy in Copenhagen has demanded an apology from Danish newspaper Jyllands-posten for publishing a Chinese flag with the coronavirus on it.

The image by Niels Bo Bojesen featured the Chinese flag with the yellow stars replaced with pictures of the novel coronavirus. The newspaper published the cartoon in their ‘Today’s Cartoon’ section with a disclaimer saying that the cartoon represented the artist’s personal interpretation, which may differ from the position of the paper.

Despite this, the Chinese Embassy in Denmark called on Jyllands-posten and Bojesen to immediately apologize to the Chinese people. The embassy spokesman reminded the paper that the outbreak has so far killed over a hundred people in China, and that all efforts are underway to fight the epidemic. This “satire drawing,” he added, is an insult to China and hurts the feelings of the Chinese people.

Aww, too bad, so sad. Yeah, too bad so sad that Danish is a poor language for intense swearing. And then translating that into Chinese is even harder.

Wuhan virus now in Canada, transmission vector confirmed. Surgical masks selling out everywhere.

Mongolia closes border with China. Hey, maybe they should build their own wall this time??

North Korea and Malaysia have also closed borders.

And now was acknowledged the presence of the Red Death. He had come like a thief in the night. And one by one dropped the revellers in the blood-bedewed halls of their revel, and died each in the despairing posture of his fall.

And the life of the ebony clock went out with that of the last of the gay. And the flames of the tripods expired.

And Darkness and Decay and the Red Death held illimitable dominion over all.

Economic Impacts Already: China-US Air Traffic In Free Fall

Two years ago, the future appeared to be incredibly strong. Expanding visitation, robust discretionary spending on the part of Chinese visitors, and a shortage of adequate capacity all combined to make airlines on both sides of the Pacific enthusiastic.
...
As of now, however, all that is out the moon gate. The bottom has quickly fallen out of the trans-Pacific market between the U.S. and the Middle Kingdom.

It’s due to the coronavirus epidemic, and it is not only killing people, but it’s threatening to put a stake in the heart of what was until now was still thought to be potentially one of the fastest growth sectors in the global air transportation business.

It’s simple. Air traffic between the United States and China is spinning into a free-fall. (It’s also doing so to other international destinations from China, for the same set of reasons.)

To be sure, occasional cases of the potentially deadly coronavirus are being discovered all over the world, including in the USA. But it’s now all across China, big time.

Work Them Harder Now Before They’re All Dead

Apple Increases iPhone Production 10%

Apple Inc. has asked suppliers to make as many as 80 million iPhones in the first half of this year, an increase of more than 10% from the previous year’s output, the Nikkei newspaper reported.

Apple has booked orders for as many as 65 million units of current models, primarily the iPhone 11 series, and as many as 15 million units of a new low-cost model, the paper reported, citing unidentified people.

~~

Apple is reportedly asking its chipmaker TSMC to increase production of the A13 processor due to higher-than-anticipated iPhone 11 demand. Bloomberg reports that the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro are selling particularly well in China.

Without a doubt this is coronavirus related.

Personally, if I was in charge I’d have every single thing that shows up here from China sprayed down with super disinfectant, and then hit with enough sterlizing UV-C light that they glow.

When - not if - this thing really takes off, expect to see a lot of anti-Chinese backlash all over the world. Oh, it won’t be at the government level, no no. But if you get up one day and see that your town’s Chinese take-out place has burned to the ground, you’ll know.

I think I’ll get myself another order of yummy Wor Shu Duck, because I think that might be my last visit there for some time. And I do hope this doesn’t vector into the Thai community, because I don’t want to live without Drunken Man Noodles or chu-chee curry.

Vice President Mike Pence said Monday that the CDC is conducting screenings at 20 American airports that receive 90% of all passengers from China.
The CDC advises Americans to avoid unnecessary travel to Hubei Province. Three dozen US diplomats and their families in Wuhan will evacuate the region to return to the US early this week.
The Canadian government has issued a travel advisory, urging citizens to avoid all travel to the Hubei Province of China. The advisory includes the cities of Wuhan, Huanggang and Ezhou.

The northern Chinese city of Tangshan also suspended all local public transportation services to curb the spread of the virus.
Otherwise, the CDC encourages people to follow flu season protocol: Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, avoid ill people and stay home and avoid public situations if they’re ill. A coronavirus vaccine would take at least a year to reach the public.

If all the airport screeners are doing is taking people’s temperature, then this is just kabuki theater and these screeners are no more effective than anyone else in the TSA.

Nobody noticed the smell?

30 years of turtle poop in the house and nobody noticed the smell. Nor did anybody clean the place up at all in all that time? Seriously???

I Guess I’m Not Such A Bad Housekeeper After All

A family in Realengo, Brazil, found their long lost pet tortoise after they decided to finally clean out the house. Back in 1982, the Almeida Family was saddened to learn that their red-footed tortoise, Manuela, had gone missing.

Their house was being renovated at the time, so the family assumed that the tortoise had slipped out through a door left open by the construction crew—disappearing into the forest near their home.

But they couldn’t have been more wrong. The true fate of their lost pet remained a mystery for the next 30 years, until the father passed away and the Almeida children returned to help clean out his cluttered storage room.

It turns out, the father was somewhat of a hoarder, so the room was jam-packed with things.

While cleaning out the house, a neighbor asked son Leandro if he was intending to get rid of the tortoise, too.

“I put the trash bag on the floor and the neighbor just warned me ‘are you going to throw the turtle away too?’ At that moment, I went white and didn’t believe it,” Leandro told Globo TV.

That’s when the Almeidas learned that Manuela had managed to survive for three decades on her own.

The family suspects she survived on termites which, thanks to all that unwanted furniture, were likely in abundance.

Aye Yai Yaaiii, we found Mr. Turtle!! He was in the living room this whole time, since we were little kids!!!

Are termites juicy? Don’t turtles need a drink of water now and again?

PS - Think this one through a bit. Since the turtle was there the whole time, the implication is that as soon as the renovation was complete the house was hoardered up with junk immediately. Otherwise, wouldn’t the turtle be noticed in the nice new rooms?

Holy cats.  The level of stoopit here is mind boggling.

This is a tweet for for the founders of the gun violence prevention movement started centuries ago by almost entirely black, brown and indigenous lgbtq women and non binary people that never got on the news or in most history books.

We may not know all your names but thank you.

Equally Stupid, Florida Legislature Edition

Florida Bloomberg Republicans pass gun control out of legislative committee

“Bloomberg Republicans”?? Yeah, mini-Mike bought these clowns part and parcel for a mere half million, and now they are troo beleevers and sing his tunes on command.

Can this week’s Florida Man competition be won by their state assembly? Stay tuned.

  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
