Once Again, The One And Only Post

September 19, 2020


Newsie things I didn’t get to over the weekend:


Piggy-pocolypse !

Wild crossbred “super-pig” population soaring across the South, millions and millions of them ruining agriculture and forests

The U.S. wild pig population is soaring and rapidly multiplying, which experts describe as a ticking ‘feral swine bomb,’ according to a report on Saturday.

There are roughly nine million feral swine running rampant across the U.S. The invasive species already costs the U.S. an estimated $2.5 billion each year in damages and control costs, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). As their numbers continue to rise, the damage will only get worse.

In fact, the wild pig population has expanded from 17 states to at least 39 over the last three decades, The Atlantic reported.

Sounds like they need every Southerner to get his big rifle and go a-huntin’. Doesn’t matter if the meat gets eaten or sold or left to rot. Ok, left to rot isn’t the best approach, but sometimes what can you do?

Since the hogs travel in packs, group hunts with large capacity magazines sounds like a good idea.

China brucelosis outbreak infects more than 3,000; lab leak at vaccine factory. From using out of date disinfectant. China too cheap, China don’t care, China is asshoe.

More than 3,000 people in China have contracted the bacterial disease known as Malta fever following a leak from a lab last year, health officials said.

The outbreak originating from the Zhongmu Lanzhou biological pharmaceutical factory left 3,245 people sickened with brucellosis, the Health Commission of Lanzhou said
...
People can contract brucellosis — also known as Mediterranean fever — by coming into contact with livestock such as sheep, goats, cows or camels infected with the Brucella bacteria
...
The lab leak occurred last year between late July and late August when the factory was producing Brucella vaccines for animal use, the Health Commission said. The factory was using expired disinfectants and sanitizers and not all bacteria were killed in the waste gas, CNN reported.

China: Fish Thieves Of The Galapagos. Rules? Waa? China AGAIN caught red handed doing heavy fishing in protected waters. Fines don’t stop them. Jail time doesn’t stop them. How about torpedoes?

A marine conservation group published an analysis on Wednesday, revealing that an armada of Chinese fishing vessels carried out more than 73,000 hours of illegal fishing in the Galápagos between July and August, pulling thousands of tons of squid and fish up in the process.

The analysis, carried out by the marine conservation group Oceana, found that around 300 Chinese vessels were involved in “pillaging” the waters of the Galapagos Marine Reserve in search mainly of squid. The report pointed out that squid are “essential to the diet of iconic Galapagos species such as fur seals and hammerhead sharks, as well as for many commercial and recreational fish species, including tuna and billfish, that contribute to the local economy.”

“Oceana analyzed data from fishing vessels found near the Galapagos Islands from July 13 to Aug. 13, 2020. During this one-month period, Oceana documented the Chinese fleet, which was primarily fishing for squid, logged more than 73,000 total hours of apparent fishing,” the analysis explained. “In fact, 99% of the visible fishing activity off the Galapagos Islands during this one-month period was by Chinese-flagged vessels.”
...
Chinese vessels have long been caught illegally fishing in and around the Galápagos Islands.

Protected water! You no fish! You fish, you die!

Bowling blogging

We got totally smeared at Cheap League on Friday. My bowling was terrible, and the rest of my team did even worse. After it was over, Jason, the anchor on the other team gave me some tips and explained them in a way that actually made sense to me. I’ve known him for at least a decade, and not only is he a very good bowler ( he threw a 270 in game 3 when his knee was in great pain ), he’s also a very smart and analytic person. So while what he said was really the same as the “get ‘er out there” and the “come up through the ball” advice the alley guys have been telling forever, the way he that he said it was clear to me. That getting the ball to hook is not a matter of turning your wrist at all, coming up the side of the ball at the moment of release, but a matter of holding your fingers at a certain angle in the ball relative to your index finger and your wrist’s lateral position. That way when you do do the release, it’s the fingers that are pulling the ball around at an angle, a hopefully vertical angle, as the ball both comes off your hand in a forward direction and falls off your hand to the side because of the unbalanced weights within the ball. With your arm swinging straight and the ball tilting off to the inside, it merely looks like your hand is coming up the side of the ball. But it’s actually the ball spinning off your hand the other way. So it was a huge Ah HA!! moment for me.

The Mrs and I had a big discussion about it this morning, and we’re going to try his way. Why not, as I try to reinvent my bowling nearly every year anyway. So with any luck, we’ll get everything done here today early enough to get up to the lanes and do some training and practice tonight. Because, as Jason told me years ago, practice makes persistent; training makes perfection. So we’ll leave “getting under the ball” for another time, and focus on “staying behind the ball” and not “coming over the ball”, with me also trying to stop squeezing the ball with my thumb. That’s a bad thing, and I’ve done it forever. This new awareness/approach may not gel completely the first time. So more training will be needed. But we ought to be able to see right away if his thesis is at least a little valid. We will wear our wrist braces to keep our wrists straight, and eventually try to do the full follow through movement which combines a finger snap ( the result of curling your fingers strongly against the ball ) with a bicep curl and raising your arm all at the same time, hand finishing up next to your ear, upper arm nearly horizontal with the elbow pointing forward. Which is what the alley guys call “answer the phone”.

There are an infinite number of ways to bowl wrong and still meet with some success. But there are only a couple ways to bowl properly, and those meet with much greater success. A 270 game with an aching knee sounds like success to me.

[ some posts don’t make it past my first review. this is one of them. ]

I really do miss good old Steamboat McGoo. His blog was a lot of fun and the comments were witty and energetic.

Sometimes he would post these funny pictures that had less than obvious content. “When you see it, you’ll sh*t bricks !”. He also had this manic way with words creating wonderful pseudo-scientific word salad to explain everything.

So here’s to you Steamy, wherever you may be. Take a peak over at The Feral Irishman. Could this be the hallway at Jack Sprat’s corporate office?

[ the tiny picture at Feral’s made me think that this place had bariatric bathrooms, as the one door is much wider than the other. I couldn’t see if the signs were also marked Men and Women, and that other subliminal methods were used. Because Science!!  But digging up much larger versions showed that the gender subtleties were the result of some minor digital editing compared to the original. But the message is still there if you let your brain work, kind of like the Setters | Pointers signs. Whatever. Not the best idea for a post, first cup of coffee and all that, and I analyzed all the fun out of a slightly naught picture while not even showing it. Lame. So ... moving on ... ]

Snakes On A Bus !!

UK man goes on a bus ride wearing a boa constrictor as a face mask. Nice try. But no.

A man boarded a bus using a snake as a face covering. The commuter and his reptilian mask, which was wrapped around his neck and mouth, were seen on a bus from Swinton to Manchester on Monday.

One passenger said she thought the passenger was wearing a “funky mask” until she spotted it slithering over hand rails.

Transport bosses in Greater Manchester confirmed a snake was not a valid face covering. ... the animal did not seem to be bothering any of her fellow passengers. She said: “No-one batted an eyelid.”

...

Using a face covering on public transport is mandatory, except for children under the age of 11 or those who are exempt for health or disability reasons.

A Transport for Greater Manchester spokesperson said: “Government guidance clearly states that this needn’t be a surgical mask, and that passengers can make their own or wear something suitable, such as a scarf or bandana.

“While there is a small degree of interpretation that can be applied to this, we do not believe it extends to the use of snakeskin – especially when still attached to the snake.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 87

Out of respect for a Supreme Court justice I will not say anything negative about her politics at this point.

But I do hope President Trump can get someone bold and strong, a Christian with intense Originalist views on the Constitution, both nominated and approved by the Republican majority Senate several weeks before the election. And I would want the nominating committee, all of whom are Republicans up for reelection, to do the right thing for the preservation of America, without regard to their personal campaigns.

And while we’re at it, I think it’s high time for a new Amendment, stating clearly that no more than 9 justices ever be serving on the Supreme Court.

Covid Running Hot and Cold

It takes a degree of latitude. Or quite a few degrees actually.

Murmansk Russia May Be Reaching Herd Immunity

The far northern Russian region believes it is about to get group immunity against the virus. A new study finds that 31,8 percent of local participants have developed immunity, the regional government informs.

The researchers found that 972 of the 3,117 participants were antibody-positive. That is among the highest numbers in the country, a representative of the regional Consumer Control Authority (Rospotrebnadzor) says.

In other Russian regions where similar studies have been carried out, the immunity rate is between 4,3 percent and 50,2 percent, the government official says.

The Murmansk area has hit pretty hard, way up north in the land of cold and dreary.

Meanwhile, testing of Russia’s Sputnik V vaccine shows 14% side effects, which is actually pretty good for these rushed vaccines.

Health Minister Mikhail Murashko said more than 300 out of the announced 40,000 volunteers have been vaccinated so far, according to the state-run TASS news agency.

“Approximately 14% have small complaints of weakness, muscle pain for 24 hours and an occasional increase in body temperature,” TASS quoted Murashko as saying. Murashko said the symptoms “level off” by the next day.



Covid Case Growth In India At Exponential Rates, Now Over 5 Million Cases

One day after crossing the 5 million-case threshold, India has reported yet another record single-day jump in coronavirus cases, with 97,894 reported in the last 24 hours, bringing the country’s total to 5.12 million, as the world is roughly one day away from topping the 30 million case mark.

Indian cases are now climbing at roughly double the rate of the US.

Death rate is actually dropping though, currently hovering around 1.64%. Maybe all that HCQ and Ivermectin is helping?

For months, India has been struggling to control the coronavirus pandemic with limited success.

The country of 1.3 billion people has the second-highest number of cases globally (more than 4.4 million), and the third highest number of deaths (over 75,000), according to Johns Hopkins University — and the outbreak shows no sign of abating.

But India’s reported mortality rate — calculated by the number of deaths per 100 confirmed cases — is surprisingly low compared to other countries with high infection rates.

India’s Covid-19 mortality rate stands at 1.7%. For context, the same rate is about 3% in the US, 11.7% in the UK, and 12.6% in Italy, according to Johns Hopkins University.

The Indian government claims India’s lower death rate is a sign of its success in handling the crisis, and has used the figure to support its decision to lift some coronavirus restrictions.

“The average fatality rate in the country is … continuously going down,” said Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a press release in August. “The target of bringing down the fatality rate below 1% can be achieved soon.”

It took almost six months for India to record 1 million cases on July 17. Then, it took another three weeks to hit 2 million, 16 days to reach 3 million, and only 12 days to pass 4 million in early September. [ and then just 5 or 6 days to hit 5 million ]

Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan on Thursday said the government was aiming to bring down India’s Covid-19 mortality rate to less than 1 per cent from the current 1.64 per cent, which is still the lowest in the world.

As I’ve written before, pandemic viruses hit the northern latitudes first and hardest, and then get around to the southern latitudes much later, often at lower severity. This has been known for well over a century.

And try as you might, a virus is going to do what a virus does. There’s no stopping any of them.

India has long had big problems with medical reporting though, so these numbers are at best an educated guess. There’s just too damn many people there. No matter what system they have, it’s always totally overloaded from the get-go.

Much Ado About Nothing ... perfect phrase for Joe Biden

Saw some little bit on Insty about deciphering Biden-speak. While the comments focused more on an episode of Stark Trek TNG, the link was to a goofy music hall song that made me think of Gilbert & Sullivan. Which of course made me look up Modern Major General, one of the best patter songs ever.

And now I do know the difference between mamelon and ravelin. I guess I’d always assumed they were Jabberwocky words.

A mamelon is one of the three little bumps on a newly emerged human tooth that soon wears away. Probably a bit like the egg tooth that baby chickens use to get out of the shell.

A ravelin is a triangular walled, detached extension of an old style fortress, used as a strong defensive platform, placed a short distance ahead of the gates. The idea is that attackers would have to fight past that to even get near the gates. Implied in the concept that ravelin duty could be completley sacrificial, and kamakaze - ish. Oops.

So one helps you break out, and the other hinders you from breaking in.

Of course, the whole satirical point of Modern Major General, is that even large amounts of useless knowledge don’t prepare you at all for the job at hand. However, the reference in it to Aristophene’s The Frogs might be rather applicable to the media “coverage” of Biden; it is a comedy of errors and ineptitude.

And The Quartermaster’s Song referenced at the Insty link, a silly song for kids, points out that countless major problems can’t be seen if you’re not wearing your glasses.

Oh well. Not every Insty post is a work of genius.

Stupid Kid Should Have Said “I Can’t Breathe”
Another hoodrat gets payback for passing funny money

According to a media release from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, Johnson called a taxi for a 25-mile ride in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

Because of the long journey, the unnamed taxi driver requested that Johnson pre-pay for the trip. Johnson reportedly handed over his cell phone to the driver as collateral.

When the driver arrived at Johnson’s requested destination, Johnson reportedly handed over a counterfeit $100 bill as payment. The driver, according to the release, immediately spotted the fake and confronted the 18-year-old over payment.

At that point, Johnson allegedly pulled out a gun, pointed it at the back of the driver’s head, and began shouting. The driver was able to engage the suspect as he was yelling, and a struggle over the weapon ensued.
...
Local residents spilled out of their homes to discover the source of the gunshot and, seeing the scuffle, phoned authorities.

Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrived on the scene a short time later and discovered a wounded Johnson, who was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment of his injuries.

Following his release from the hospital, authorities charged the 18-year-old with robbery in the first degree, assault in the fourth degree, menacing, unlawful use of a weapon, criminal possession of a forged instrument in the first degree, and possession of a controlled, schedule IV substance.

Tip to taxi drivers everywhere: if it’s the middle of the night and your fare has a face covered with tattoos, keep driving.

At this point, no spontaneous riots are planned, as the police weren’t involved in the actual shooting part here.

early week bowling blogging
I bowled terribly at Old Guys League last night. While it’s not actually a senior league - those are usually in the late morning, after the breakfast crowd leaves the Country Crock Senior Breakfast Buffet, I am by far the youngest person on my team. And I turn 60 on Veteran’s Day. G is 67, V is 74, and G is 85 - just a couple months younger than my mother. So let’s just say that they aren’t in the spry, athletic, competitive phase of their lives. We lost all 3 games again, 3 weeks in a row I think. The other team wasn’t even trying in games 2 and 3, which seemed like a good reason for our guys to try even less. A race to the bottom? G didn’t break 100 in game 2, and managed an 89 in game 3. I have to learn to use this league as practice time, and focus on me. Bowling with lousy bowlers can bring your bowling down. I barely made a 400 series last night. Barely. not 600, not 500. Barely 400. Egad.

Out With The Queen !!

Barbados moves towards fuller independence, soon to eliminate Elizabeth II as mascot monarch

Barbados announced plans Tuesday to remove Queen Elizabeth II as its head of state by November 2021 and transition into a republic.

The Caribbean island nation, which achieved independence from the United Kingdom in 1966, said it will now “take the next logical step toward full sovereignty and become a Republic by the time we celebrate our 55th Anniversary of Independence.”

“The time has come to fully leave our colonial past behind,” Governor-General Sandra Mason said before Parliament Tuesday, reading a speech written by Prime Minister Mia Mottley. “Barbadians want a Barbadian Head of State. This is the ultimate statement of confidence in who we are and what we are capable of achieving.”

Barbados gained independence from its colonial ruler decades ago but stayed connected to the monarchy, with Queen Elizabeth II as its legal and practical, but non-political, ruler, according to UK’s The Independent. After establishing its own head of state next year, the nation, like many other former territories in the British Empire, is expected to become a republic within the Commonwealth.

Baby steps. 55 years as a post-colonial and now they’re going “full independent” yet still remaining part of the UK Commonwealth. Maybe in another 100 years they’ll be ready to be an actual country on their own? In the meantime, I think they’ll still get UK social services support, and have their navy on standby if a Falkland Islands situation ever crops up.

So good for Barbados I guess, but they’re mighty slow about going it completely on their own. Maybe if they had some industry, or agricultural production or something. Something more than just tourism and rum.

Honestly though, I would like to see most of the Caribbean islands get some low polluting industries going. Like how Costa Rica makes baseballs. Sure, you might have to build the factories half underground because of hurricanes, but it’s better than sending the business to China, even if it drops the profit margins a little bit. Come on Uncle Sam, help out your neighbors for a change. China is asshoe.

Related to baseball part of the above story is a perfectly American NJ success story that crosses the generations. There’s even a kid’s book about it. Now on hold due to Covid of course.

Step 1: Collect Mud   Step 2: Sell It For Big Profit   Step 3: Successful Business For Generations

4 pounds of mud for $100    1/2lb for $25


For nearly three quarters of a century, a special variety of Jersey muck, Lena Blackburne Baseball Rubbing Mud, has been removing the sheen from baseballs for just about every professional baseball team in the country.

It all began in 1938 when an umpire complained to Lena Blackburne, a third base coach for the old Philadelphia Athletics, about the sorry condition of the baseballs used by the American League. Back then a ball was prepped simply with mud made of water and dirt from the playing field. The result? The ball’s cover was too soft, leaving it open for tampering. Something was needed to take off the shine but not soften the cover. Blackburne took on the challenge.
...
Soon the entire American League was using the amazing gunk. Later, the National League took to using it. Before Blackburne’s death in the late 50’s, his baseball rubbing mud was being used by every major and most minor leagues in the United States.

Baseball’s disappearance amid the coronavirus crisis has hurt untold thousands of Americans. In the headlines, it’s millionaires vs. billionaires as players and owners battle over money and heath worries. Then there’s everyone else – team employees taking pay cuts, out-of-work stadium staff waiting on unemployment checks, fans just dreaming of when they’ll be able to watch Yankees star Aaron Judge crush another 500-foot home run.

But don’t forget about the New Jersey family that’s been literally the closest to the actual baseball than anybody since 1938.

The owner of the Longport company that has supplied the one-of-a-kind mud MLB rubs on every single baseball to improve pitchers’ grip says it’s taken a beating in recent months.

This time of year, Lena Blackburne Baseball Rubbing Mud would be selling thousands of dollars of product a week. Now? Nada.

“We’re not getting any orders,” owner Jim Bintliff said. “It’s a little bit troubling.”

He said he estimated that business was down “about 80%.”

“We haven’t gotten any phone calls in two months on the business phone,” he said. “That’s not normal. We get three or four a day in the normal season.”

Where the company’s mud comes from is a closely guarded family secret, but it’s not far from the Delaware River.

It started when Lena Blackburne, a former infielder and manager, discovered the stuff near where he grew up in Palmyra. Not long after word spread of Blackburne’s mud, the rest of MLB caught on, using it to de-gloss its baseballs. Blackburne eventually passed the business on to Bintliff’s grandfather and the business has stayed in the family.

What makes it special, Bintliff said, is that is has a high concentration of a feldspar, a quartz-like material in the mud that’s “abrasive enough to take off gloss without being so abrasive that it harms leather.”

Will There Be Sanitary Changes Coming To Baseball In This COVID Era? I hope so. For starters, how about $1000 fine every time you spit? In this day and age, AYFKM???

Speaking of spit ...

Chris Van Zant earns part of his paycheck with his spit. An assistant manager for the Braves, Chris is the team’s only baseball rubber. Before each game, he mixes spit with the mud and rubs the factory gloss off of each new ball.

In his 10 years with the club, Van Zant estimates over 40,000 baseballs have passed through his hands.

“It seems kind of funny,” he said. “When you see fans fighting for a souvenir ball that goes into the stands, you’re like, ‘Well, that ball has my spit on it.’ There’s a little kid somewhere with a baseball on his nightstand and I spit on that ball.”

Surrounded by pictures of his kids, stacks of paperwork and articles clipped from newspapers and magazines, Van Zant sat recently in his office at Turner Field plying his trade.

Working up the spit to rub up nine dozen baseballs a game is no easy task, so he makes sure he has plenty of gum and soda on hand.

According to Van Zant, pitchers like the balls darker and hitters like the balls lighter, so the baseballs can vary from stadium to stadium.

“Every guy who does this has his own way of rubbing the baseballs,” Chris explains. “But no matter what, you have to spit.”



Baseballs are covered in cowhide these days, no longer horsehide. And every one of those bits of leather is alum tanned by the Tennessee Tanning Company in Tullahoma TN. Very likely there is no saliva involved at all.

Wonder how bad they’re hurting right now as well?

Michelle Malkin: “Masks off. Fight on. This is the American way.” And The Paving Stones Of The Road To Hell

Good news: The anti-mask mandate movement is gaining steam. Americans yearning to breathe free are waking up from their pandemic stupor. Common sense and constitutional principles, now more than ever, are vital to a sovereign nation’s health.

On Monday, a federal judge rescinded Democratic Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf’s shutdown orders restricting gatherings, forcing “nonessential” business closures and directing citizens to stay at home to combat COVID-19. U.S. District Judge William Stickman determined that the sweeping measures violated “the right of assembly enshrined in the First Amendment.” He noted Wolf’s hypocrisy in severely limiting indoor and outdoor fairs, festivals, concerts and other gatherings and condemning a small anti-lockdown protest of small-business owners (whom he called “selfish,” “cowardly” and “unsafe")—while marching with thousands of non-socially distancing Black Lives Matter radicals in Harrisburg in June.

Moreover, Stickman ruled [PDF], Pennsylvania’s stay-at-home order—a sweeping population unlike any “in the history of our Commonwealth and our Country"—violated the 14th Amendment’s due process rights to travel, association and privacy. Similarly, Wolf’s extreme and open-ended power grab designating and closing “nonessential” businesses undermined due process protections “against arbitrary government action.”

While Wolf’s measures may have been “well-intentioned,” Stickman concluded that “good intentions toward a laudable end are not alone enough to uphold governmental action against a constitutional challenge. Indeed, the greatest threats to our system of constitutional liberties may arise when the ends are laudable, and the intent is good—especially in a time of emergency.”

No, I didn’t post much today. I’ve been too wrapped up in this news story with Chinese escapee Dr. Yan and her claim that the ‘rona was made in China on purpose.

While I think it was too, to be fair, I’ve been trying to read her paper, and several other ones, and frankly, genome sequencing and all that is waaaay over my head. But the holes in the genome remind me too much of that group from India that said something very similar early on, thinking that some HIV DNA had been snuck in there. They were totally shut down by the Wuhan batlady virologist Dr. Shi Zheng Li, the same one from the 2015 Gain Of Function project UNC Chapel Hill lab run by Prof Ralph S. Baric and funded by Anthony Fauci’s NIAID. ( look it up at nature dot com ). The same one who claimed this year to have miraculously found a nearly identical strain in nature years ago, but kept no samples after mapping it, even though collecting bat coronaviruses is totally her thing,and neglected to register this magical anomaly until this year. But as time went on, a whole lot of people looked closely and figured it was a smokescreen.

Dr. Yan’s story is just another layer on story many of us have known about since around Valentine’s Day. Even famous Italian professor Dr. Tritto wrote a whole book on it this Spring, connecting all the dots.

Nothing really new there for me, except for the hard science and genome map graphics. Oh, and the very interesting tidbit ... Dr. Shi Zhengli seems to have been disappeared.

Is it still a paranoid conspiracy theory if it turns out to be true?

But sadly, Hillary’s old quote really does seem to apply; “At this point, what possible difference could it make?”

Good. Leave them to rot in jail, and I hope their trial dates don’t come up for a year or three.

Lancaster Rioters Held On $1 Million Bail Each

Following the suicide by cop death of known knife attack crazy person Ricardo Munoz, “protests” broke out in Lancaster PA. Don’t confuse the city of Lancaster with the county of Lancaster it sits in. The city ain’t Amish.

A Pennsylvania judge threw the book at several protesters accused of rioting — by setting their bail at $1 million each — in the wake of the police shooting of a knife-wielding Lancaster man

Lancaster police nabbed a dozen people and one juvenile for staging the riots around 3 a.m. Monday in clashes that culminated in police deploying tear gas at the crowd.

The overnight violence came on the heels of the death of Ricardo Munoz, the mentally ill 27-year-old who was seen on bodycam footage charging with a knife in hand at a cop. The officer shot and killed Munoz Sunday afternoon outside his mother’s house in downtown Lancaster.

The mob marched from the scene of the shooting on Laurel Street to the police station, chucking glass bottles, rocks, bricks, gallon jugs filled with liquid and plastic road barricades at cops, police said.

A county vehicle parked in front of the station was also damaged.

Twelve adults — Jamal Shariff Newman, 24, Barry Jones, 30, Frank Gaston, 43, Yoshua Dwayne Montague, 23, Matthew Modderman, 31, Talia Gessner, 18, Kathryn Patterson, 20, Taylor Enterline, 20, T-Jay Fry, 28, Dylan Davis, 28, Lee Alexander Wise, 29, and Jessica Marie Lopez, 32 — face a slew of felony and misdemeanor charges, including arson, riot, institutional vandalism and criminal conspiracy.

A 16-year-old boy was also busted on riot, disorderly conduct, possession of instruments of crime, possession of a small amount of marijuana, propulsion of missiles onto a roadway and institutional vandalism charges.
...
Munoz was set to go to trial in October on charges he slashed four people last year.

The blade-wielding Pennsylvania man shot dead by police — triggering destructive protests demanding justice — was previously busted in 2019 for knifing four people in the city, according to his lawyer and officials.

Before Ricardo Munoz, 27, made the fatal decision to rush a cop while waving a knife on Sunday, he was charged with stabbing or slashing two men, a woman and a 16-year-old boy in and near a Lancaster home in March of last year.
...
Munoz was charged with four counts of felony assault, and initially held on $1 million bail, according to court records and Low.

He made the hefty sum a short time later and, until last month, had been ordered held under house arrest at his mother’s home on Laurel Street — the same building from which he charged at a cop on Sunday.

A single officer was responding to a domestic incident at the home when Munoz burst through the front door and rushed at the lawman, holding a knife high, harrowing bodycam video of the incident shows.

The body cam video is at the above link. You can see the officer approaching the residence, at which point a woman comes out the door. Almost immediately Munoz comes charging out, brandishing a large knife and attacks the cop. 4 seconds after coming out the door, Munoz is dead on the sidewalk.

But let’s protest and riot anyway, because a police officer was defending himself against a wildman trying to kill him. Oh bad cop, bad bad. Rioters “mostly peaceful protest” included piling up trash to block a road, and setting fire to the police station and the post office. Because Justice!!

The shooting Sunday of Ricardo Munoz, 27, after a report of a domestic disturbance led to protests one day later in which eight people were arrested.

The cause of death was gunshot wounds to the body and manner of death is homicide, Lancaster Coroner Stephen Diamantoni told CNN.

The Lancaster County District Attorney’s Office, which is investigating the shooting, said officers responded on Sunday to a “reported domestic disturbance involving a person with a knife.”

Lancaster Police said in a news release that a 911 caller had reported that her brother was becoming aggressive with his mother and attempting to break into her house.

Body camera footage shows a family member at the door when the first officer arrives at the scene. The woman soon steps outside and a man, identified by authorities as Munoz, runs out of the home toward the officer. The footage shows Munoz wielding a knife above his head, “in clear view, in a threatening manner,” the district attorney’s office said in a release.

Let ‘em rot in jail. I’m sure you’ve noticed that lately any time a PoC gets shot by the police, no matter how guilty, it’s cause for a riot. Even if the rioters have to pick an incident from many months ago. Because all black people should be exempt from the law and any kind of personal responsibility for their actions. Sure seems like that’s the message we’re getting. Guess what? Ain’t gonna happen.

Faster Than HCQ, Ivermectin + Doxycycline Cures Non-Severe Covid-19 In About A Week

Is “cure” too strong a word? Where’s the line between an effective treatment that allows you to recover fully within a short time period, and an “official cure”? I don’t know. They seem the same to me.
Maybe something that knocks the virus back enough so that you can get over it by yourself should only be a “treatment”. But you get well, and not in the hospital or dead way.  So maybe it’s just semantics.

Iver-what? Ivermectin. One of the three real “wonder drugs” of our age. Discovered by Satoshi Omura of Kitasato University, Tokyo and William C. Campbell of the Merck Institute for Therapeutic research, the drug is primarily used against parasites. Brought to market in 1981, it has been widely used in tropical countries as a cure for river blindness, lymphatic filariasis, scabies, and many other parasitic diseases. For their discovery, Omura and Campbell were awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2015. Merck donates tens of millions of doses of it annually to tropical nations. It is very inexpensive if you even have to purchase it.

Doxycycline is an older antibiotic in the tetracycline family. It works against a host of bacteria, and is also used as an antimalarial. It is also very inexpensive and commonly available.

Multiple studies have shown that Ivermectin combined with Doxycycline does the job againt Covid-19, for mild to moderately ill patients. Results show an almost 100% cure. It has been adopted by the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh as the Covid treatment of choice, replacing the also effective HCQ + azithromycin treatment. It works a little faster, often alleviating symptoms within a day, and clearing the virus ( ie curing you ) about a day faster than the HCQ therapy.

With the addition of zinc, Ivermectin + Doxycycline is now an accepted Covid treatment in Australia.

In the USA, Ivermectin is available in tablet form in the drug Stromectol. While it is quite effective against scabies (skin parasites) and head lice, it is a bit hard to come by here, and is somehow looked down on because we mainly use it for veterinary applications. It’s a de-wormer for dogs, rabbits, horses, cattle and other livestock.

The interesting thing is that the dosage for all mammals is pretty much the same: 200mcg / kg body mass. Doesn’t matter if that’s bunnies, people, or ponies. It’s been around long enough that the right dosage has been found. That same dosage seems to do the job for Covid as well. You take one dose. Once. And Doxycyline for a week, standard dosage (100mg / day).  And that seems to do the job.

There is a possibility that a slightly higher dosage could work better. In the body, Ivermectin is used up in a few days, depleting in a linear manner. So taking another dose 3 or 4 days later could enchance the effects. When used against scabies, the standard is one dose on both the first and second days. Ivermectin does appear to be dosage tolerant; taking it on an empty stomach allows a lower amount of the drug to be absorbed, whereas taking it with a full meal more than doubles the absorption rate. And the body flushes out most of the drug in 3 days, all of it after 5 days. Side effects are pretty minimal too.

Like many other antibiotics, Doxycycline is available without prescription as fish tank medicine. This is the exact same pill, same dosage, same quality, as what your doctor may prescribe for you. It costs about 80¢ per pill. “Not for human use”, but do you really think that the drug makers are going to introduce by-products and contaminants, and ignore quality control, on the same manufacturing line they’ve spent so much effort on to make it sterile and pure? No.

Ivermectin is available without prescription as a livestock medicine. It usually comes as a gel in a dispenser tube. Generally called “horse paste” a treatment large enough to de-worm a 1250lb horse costs under $7, even at Amazon. It’s apple flavored too. This is the exact same medicine that goes in your prescription only pills, but is also labeled “not for human use”. Except that a large percentage of the horse paste is actually used by people fighting scabies.

So what’s the problem? Money and politics apparently. And the heels in the mud, stuck on stupid, denial of reality, dismissive attitude of the FDA and the American medical community. Like every other viral treatment in human history, Ivermectin has been thrown under the bus because large scale, long term, double blind clinical trials have not been done, here and not in some disreputable Third Word shithole filled with stupid brown people, specifically for Covid-19. And yet it works.

Ok, two short quotes, one big quote on Ivermectin, Australia, and the resistance to it here in the West:

Preliminary findings released Tuesday for a U.S.-based clinical trial of anti-parasite drug ivermectin found that the mortality rate for coronavirus patients fell 40%, according to the Medrxiv.org site.

The ivermectin study—it began in March as part of a larger Australian-led clinical study—focused on 280 patients, 173 of whom were treated with the drug at four Broward County, Florida, hospitals.
...
The dose given the COVID-19 patients was the same as the FDA-approved dose used to treat patients with intestinal parasites.

According to Medrxiv.org, the Broward study found that overall mortality among seriously ill COVID-19 patients treated with the drug was 15%. Mortality among patients in a similar disease state who did not receive ivermectin was 25%.

That would equate to a 40% drop in mortality, a statistically significant difference.

“It’s amazing and could literally pull people back from critical COVID-19 illness,” according to board certified emergency medicine physician Dr. Peter Hibberd, M.D.




SYDNEY, Aug 19, 2020 Triple therapy specialist Professor Thomas Borody, famous for curing peptic ulcers using a triple antibiotic therapy saving millions of lives, today released the COVID-19 treatment protocol to Australian GPs, who can legally prescribe it to their COVID-19 positive patients, and can also prescribe it as a preventative medication. Borody says this could be the fastest and safest way to end the pandemic in Australia within 6-8 weeks.

Professor Thomas Borody MB, BS, BSc(Med), MD, PhD, DSc, FRACP, FACP, FACG, AGAF, FRS(N) said:

“The three medications are on chemist shelves right now. GPs can email GP@CDD.com.au to obtain the dosing protocol and COVID-19 treatment information for their patients.
...
“We have a therapy that can fight COVID-19. The medications have been around for 50 years, they are cheap, FDA and TGA approved and have an outstanding safety profile. Why are we just waiting around for a vaccine? To save lives we should be using whatever is safe and available right now. We could lead the world in this fight.



As reported in DNA India and multiple times in TrialSite, ivermectin is being successfully used across India as one economical way to stem the onslaught of the pandemic. Hospitals and institutions from AIIMS, Lady Hardinge Medical College, and Max Hospital to Lok Nayak, now routinely administer ivermectin to COVID-19 patients. The Indian Express reports that the switch and acceptance of ivermectin came as the result of positive results from a study at Agra.
...
DNA India raised a sample study conducted by Xi’ a Jiaotong University centering on 116 subjects who tested positive for COVID-19. The combination of ivermectin with doxycycline produced “far superior” results in the hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin therapy comparator in mild to moderate COVID-19 infections.
...
Often known as the “wonder drug,” the anti-parasitic drug is used to target parasitic infections from head lice and scabies to river blindness and other tropical diseases. The Monash University lab experiment started the interest in the drug as a treatment for COVID-19. In parts of the world where large pharmaceutical companies hold sway, the press avoids discussion of the drug.
...
There is some form of press censorship on the topic of ivermectin. The only rumblings coming out of the U.S. or “West” is that it isn’t proven, used for animals, or could be dangerous in higher doses. No one declares it’s been called the “wonder drug” and that billions of prescriptions have been given in tropical countries. There is an unbelievable lack of intellectual curiosity
...
But the lack of interest, despite numerous data points from around the world, has truly perplexed the mind. Unless the prospect of an economical and available treatment disrupts monetization imperatives? Or perhaps even a more primordial resistance from research elites?

But what if the first generation of vaccines have only limited impact? As reported by CNBC, Dr. Fauci is recently on the record that the chances of a vaccine working well, or being “highly effective,” is “not great.”

The economic, social, and political consequences of not having a broad-based, methodical and effective, multifaceted approach to deal with this pandemic, assuming no vaccine, are too great.



So there you go. You can find more information online.


And no, I’m not AT ALL advocating treating yourself with horse paste and fish tank medicine. But the Ivermectin + Doxycycline treatment does seem to work, and it will only work better with some added zinc. And if you’re really short of money, or one of these doomsday prepper folks, or just hate doctors, then careful use of this off the shelf DIY approach should work too.

I’m running down some research on some research here, but it looks extremely promising. And dirt cheap. And seriously weird. But it tastes like apples!

What if you could cure your entire family of COVID in less than a week for less than $60 total, and do it without any prescriptions?

Yup, study after study has shown that there is a highly effective COVID-19 treatment that is faster than the HCQ approach. It gets no play in Western news. Big Pharma won’t hardly make a dime off this. In fact, they give this medicine away for free, millions of doses per year.

The good news is, Trump hasn’t said a word about it.

While it’s obviously much smarter to get the drugs prescribed by your doctor after a properly professional consultation, they are available off the shelf, even through Amazon. And it’s exactly the same medicine. $60 will treat a family of 5.

And it will also take care of any scabies, ring worm, chlamydia, gonorrhea, gum disease, urinary tract infections, and bot fly you may also have. Who has bot fly anyway?

The only thing you need to do is to carefully measure the medicine based on your weight. From what I have found out so far, this treatment is NOT used as a prophylactic therapy.

Horry Clap. This is so huge, it’s insane. Mind blowing.

Meanwhile, keep taking your vitamins. I’ve added cuercitin and green tea to my regimen. Both are mild ionophores and flavinoid antioxidants.

Airborne Microbes That Fart Stinky Poison Gas: Proof Of Life On Venus?

Something unexpected has been discovered in the cloud decks of Venus, our nearest planetary neighbor. While no one is saying it’s aliens just yet, some sort of alien microorganism is on the list of potential explanations for why a chemical that shouldn’t be floating around above the planet has been observed there for the first time.

The chemical is phosphine, or PH3, a compound made up of phosphorus attached to three hydrogen atoms. On Earth, certain microbes that thrive in oxygen-free environments, like at a sewage plant, are believed to produce the chemical. The gas is highly toxic to humans and smells like decaying fish.

It was identified in observations of Venus made through telescopes in Hawaii and Chile in 2017 and 2019. Specifically, phosphine was found about 33 to 39 miles (53 to 62 kilometers) above the surface of Venus, a world that is known for being brutally inhospitable, with both extremely hot temperatures and crushing pressures.

Interestingly, however, the altitude where the phosphine was detected is one of the more hospitable areas in the solar system beyond Earth, with temperatures and pressure comparable to the surface of our planet. There’s still the problem of the sulfuric acid clouds, however, which would certainly be hostile to much of the life we know and should also destroy phosphine.

Phosphine gas is not at all the same as phosgene gas, which was used to poison hundreds of thousands of troops during World War I. Phosgene gas smells like old hay. Both can kill you.

Slow news is good news? Why is this just getting covered today, 2 months after the fact?

Trump EO: Lower Drug Prices

President Donald Trump announced Sunday he had signed an executive order aimed at lowering drug prices in the United States by linking them to those of other nations.

Trump tweeted Sunday:

“Just signed a new Executive Order to LOWER DRUG PRICES! My Most Favored Nation order will ensure that our Country gets the same low price Big Pharma gives to other countries. The days of global freeriding at America’s expense are over...”

Adding:

“...and prices are coming down FAST! Also just ended all rebates to middlemen, further reducing prices.”

Trump has made it a campaign slogan he is bad for big pharma, rejecting big-dollar ad campaigns from the wealthy companies amid his efforts to lower drug prices to Americans.

The “favored nation” order forces drug companies to give Americans the best price for prescription drugs.

The White House on Sunday provided a text of the executive order, which does not appear to be a newly signed document. It was dated July 24.

The Republican president in July signed an executive order that, among other things, would require Medicare, the government healthcare program for seniors, to tie the prices it pays for drugs to those paid by other countries. Its implementation, however, was delayed as the administration sought to work out a solution with the industry.

Covid Over, Over There: Finland Opens Border, Lapland Tourism Businesses Happy

The Finnish Government on Friday decided to open for Sweden and Finland from next Saturday, September 19.

Removal of restrictions means Norwegians and Swedes can go to Finland for holiday without quarantine. The same goes for travelers arriving from Iceland, Poland, Germany and Cyprus, as well as residents of Australia, Canada and Japan traveling from their home country to Finland.

For tourism, the opening to Japan is important as Finnair flies to Helsinki from several destinations in the Asian country.

Finland temporarily reintroduced travel restrictions on the border to Norway in the north on August 19, with a few exceptions allowing for people living near the border to cross.
...
Tourism businesses in northern Finland welcome a more open border. Late November is the start for the peak-season of Santa Claus and winter adventure travel.


What is it that they say about the Scandinavian marathon?

“When you come to the last Lapp, you must be near the Finnish line.”

[ PC Police: This joke is no longer funny because the Laplanders are properly called the Sámi people. “Lapp” is a derogatory term that means stupid. I hereby denounce myself. ]

Daily Covid Crap

Another Vitamin D Study: Calcifediol (metabolized vitamin D) Cuts ICU Admissions 25 To 1

Our pilot study demonstrated that administration of a high dose of Calcifediol or 25-hydroxyvitamin D, a main metabolite of vitamin D endocrine system, significantly reduced the need for ICU treatment of patients requiring hospitalization due to proven COVID-19. Calcifediol seems to be able to reduce severity of the disease, but larger trials with groups properly matched will be required to show a definitive answer.

From what I can gather, these patients were given a bolus treatment, which means a great big fat dose delivered by IV. D also seems to work prophylactically, although oral D supplements take about a week to work through your system and become effective.

Black and brown people are generally more vitamin D deficient than white people, but in the depths of winter ( and when hiding inside during lockdown ) most of us are at the lower levels at best.

Even “expert” Dr. Anthony Fauci admits he takes D and C. [ insert D&C Fauci joke here ]

“Open air therapy” - getting out in the sun and fresh air - has been an effective wellness treatment since the 1918 flu or earlier. Sunlight activates your skin to make your own D, but not everyone gets out in the sun enough.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iNji13yoW9g
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bga_qG30JyY

Generally 2000 IU of D is sufficient, although if you have other conditions including age, stress, and obesity, your D levels may be very low, so the 5000 IU supplements will get you up to speed sooner. But don’t overdo it.

Opa-Locka Florida Repeals Saggy Pants Laws. Because Raycis !!
image

A south Florida city has repealed an ordinance against saggy pants, after critics argued that the law unfairly targeted African Americans.

The Opa-locka City Commission voted 4-1 during a video conference Wednesday to repeal that ordinance and another that extended the law to include women who exposed undergarments, the Miami Herald reported.
...
The law stood for 13 years, with some critics arguing that it was unnecessary from the beginning.
...
Commissioner Alvin Burke, the only member to oppose the repeal, argued that the law did not “target our young Black men,” but was intended to “uplift” them.  [ or at least lift up their pants ]
...
“As of today, we still have our young men walking around with saggy, baggy pants,” Burke said. “If y’all see fit to do away with it and just continue to let our young Black men walk around into our buildings like that ... then so be it.”

The ACLU of Florida welcomed the decision, calling the original law an “affront to the constitutional principles of fairness, free expression, and due process of law.”

“Criminalizing the way someone wears their clothing serves no one,” the group told the Herald in a statement.

Bullshit. It’s called indecent exposure, and is one of the smallest, most basic parts of a civilization, based on self-respect and respect for others. It ain’t styling. It’s beneath trashy.

Bowling Blogging?

First night of Cheap League last night. It was good to see Jason again, a guy I was on a hardcore league with ages ago. He’s a very good bowler, and a really smart guy. I learned a lot from him. So I was a bit inspired to be bowling near his august presence, and at this point I’m astute enough to be able to watch him and see how he bowls and what it does. So I picked up a bit of a forearm lift from watching him, which improved my game quickly. Lots more rev on the ball. Sweet. I didn’t throw anything great last night, but I finished Game 3 with a 211, giving me a 516 series, which is a few points over my book average, which is used to figure out the handicap for the first couple weeks of the season. Pretty sure we won the first game, but even my nice score in the third game didn’t give us the win. It’s a team effort. Which is why I like Match Point scoring, but that will never happen in this league.

Second night of Old Guys League was Wednesday. I think the challenge for me there will be staying focused and positive amidst the negativity. If you’re not having fun, why are you there? And if your bowling is terrible, make an effort to learn and change. I’m there for the practice time, and for a bit of socializing, if I can get these senile oldsters to actually talk. No, I’m not being snide. There are a few guys on that league that I’m sure are in the mental Depends part of life.

9/11, 19 Years Later

With the 19th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on Friday, the rebuilt World Trade Center has been threatened anew by the coronavirus. Families of those killed and survivors question whether Americans are keeping their promise to “Never Forget,” as the annual remembrance ceremony, like many other rituals, will be reimagined this year due to pandemic-era precautions on gatherings.

Meanwhile, the economy of downtown Manhattan, which was left devastated in 2001 after the Twin Towers and surrounding buildings were destroyed and more than 2,700 were killed by Al Qaeda hijackers, has suffered another unprecedented financial blow as people once again exit New York City.

“People are much more worried about someone coughing on them than someone blowing up a building,” Vishal Garg, chief executive of mortgage refinance startup Better.com, headquartered at 3 World Trade Center on the site known as Ground Zero, told Reuters this week.

The controversy comes about a month after the double beams of light that evoke the fallen Twin Towers were nearly canceled in the name of virus safety, until an uproar restored the tribute. The Fire Department has cited the virus in urging current members to stay away from any observances of the 2001 attacks that killed nearly 350 firefighters.

Meanwhile, downtown Manhattan has seen record dips in rent as apartments remain vacant, and major financial firms keep their workforce remote until at least 2021. A theatre at One World Trade Center remains unfinished and construction on the fourth and final skyscraper to be rebuilt at the site of Ground Zero has been stalled during the pandemic, according to Reuters.

BLM / Antifa Guy Arrested For Starting Wildfire In Washington

Another big surprise. Not. Especially after so many of the fires in Australia last year were found to be set by radicals.

Jeffrey “Jeff” Acord was arrested in Puyallup, Washington, in suspicion of being connected to a fire that started in Washington. Police said on Twitter that he was caught starting a fire and Acord said he happened upon the fire while looking for a lost camera. He was previously arrested during a Ferguson protest in 2014 and he recently posted on social media about supporting Black Lives Matter, but not supporting looting and hurting local businesses. Acord’s name has gone viral on social media posts claiming he’s a member of “Antifa,” but his posts appear to show Black Lives Matter supporter.

On September 9, a 36-year-old man from Puyallup, Washington was arrested on suspicion of starting a fire on SR-167, Q13 Fox reported. Although the article didn’t name him specifically, it did link to a video that Jef Acord posted on Facebook, noting that he was the man arrested and he had been filming live on Facebook before his arrest. In his video, Acord said he happened upon the fire while looking for a lost camera.

He said he pulled over to call the fire in, and told the police that he wished he had a fire extinguisher on him when he pulled up. “I’ve put out fires before man,” he could be heard saying, talking about how it was a house fire back then.
...
Police had a different story about what happened. Ryan Burke, a Washington State Patrol Trooper, told Fox Q13 that Acord was found in the SR 167 median, after police had talked to him earlier when he was walking on the highway while carrying a lighter.

On Twitter, Burke wrote that a 36-year-old Puyallup resident was “caught in the median on SR-167@Meridian setting a fire!”

Bellingham Metro News reported that he was being held on a $1,000 bond and was suspected in other possible fires in the area. Before he was transferred to another jail, his charge was listed as “Reckless Burning 2nd Degree.”

Acord Was Previously Arrested During the Ferguson Protests, & on his video he said it was because he forgot his gun was in his backpack.

It’s 1700 miles in a direct line from Ferguson MO to Puyallup WA, 2087 by road. Sounds like a traveling radical to me. Wonder where else he’s been, and how he afforded all that travel. And all those other fires. Follow the money, his cell phone location log, credit card usage, hmmm?

Meanwhile, Oregon seems to be in denial, telling people to stop saying that antifa is setting wildfires. Well, why would they say such a thing, unless somebody has heard something?  Don’t forget that setting forest fires is what the terrorists have been doing in Israel for some time now, using all kinds of weird methods like firebomb kites.  Do all terrorists operate from the same handbook? Wouldn’t surprise me one bit.

Leftist Heads Would Explode If He Won Twice

President Trump Nominated For A Second Nobel Peace Prize

Unfortunately, there can be only one. Per year.

A member of the Swedish Parliament has nominated the United States under President Donald Trump for a second Nobel Prize in honor of work in Kosovo and Serbia.

The nomination was announced by Magnus Jacobson a member of the Swedish Parliament for the Christian Democrats party.

“I have nominated the US Gov. and the governments of Kosovo and Serbia for the Nobel Peace Prize for their joint work for peace and economic development, through the cooperation agreement signed in the White House,” he wrote in English on Twitter. “Trade and communications are important building blocks for peace.”

The news was celebrated by former Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell, who helped shepherd the economic normalization agreement as a special envoy between the two countries.

“Donald Trump nominated for a SECOND Nobel Peace Prize for historic Kosovo-Serbia Agreement,” Grenell wrote.

On Wednesday, Norwegian politician Christian Tybring-Gjedde also nominated Trump for his work in facilitating a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, as Breitbart News reported.

“For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other peace prize nominees,” he said in an interview on Fox News.

In 2018, Tybring-Gjedde also nominated Trump for the Nobel prize for his work to bring peace between North and South Korea.

This gives President Trump 3 nominations ... so far. That might be a record for national leaders ( I can see his gloating Tweets already, right? ) but he’s nowhere near close to the top; Arnold Sommerfield was nominated 83 times for Nobels in the sciences (physics and math), but never won once. However, at least 5 of his students earned that honor.

Sadly, the Nobel Peace Prize is awarded on December 10. If only they could move it up ... say, to early Fall? October Surprise !!!


UPDATE: CAN HE MAKE IT THREE? OR FOUR BY NEXT WEEK? FIVE???

Bahrain just signed up too. Expect Oman to join in soon. These Horn of Africa oil states are only a few miles away from Iran across the Persian Gulf, and Iran is crazy town, probably with nukes by December.

President Trump on Friday announced that Bahrain has agreed to normalize relations with Israel, another diplomatic win for the president coming after a similar agreement with the United Arab Emirates just last month.
“This is really something special, very, very special,” Trump said in the Oval Office, predicting that the region “will become more secure and prosperous” as a result of the diplomatic moves.

“The sand was loaded up with blood, and now you’ll see a lot of that sand will be loaded up with peace,” he said.

According to a formal statement issued by the three countries, they agreed to “the establishment of full diplomatic relations between Israel and the Kingdom of Bahrain.”

“This is a historic breakthrough to further peace in the Middle East. Opening direct dialogue and ties between these two dynamic societies and advanced economies will continue the positive transformation of the Middle East and increase stability, security, and prosperity in the region,” the statement said.

The statement said that Israel had also affirmed that all Muslims may visit and pray at the Al Aqsa Mosque, and Jerusalem’s other holy sites will remain open for peaceful worshippers of all faiths.

The leaders of Israel and Bahrain also praised Trump for “his dedication to peace in the region, his focus on shared challenges, and the pragmatic and unique approach he has taken to bringing their nations together.”


This is what I call WINNING.

Friday’s statement said that Bahrain had also accepted Trump’s invitation to join Israel and the UAE at a signing ceremony on Tuesday at the White House, where they will be signing a “historic Declaration of Peace.”

The agreement makes Bahrain the fourth Arab country, after Egypt, Jordan and the UAE, to have full diplomatic ties with Israel. Other Arab nations believed to be in the running for also recognizing Israel include Oman and Sudan.

Oooh rah!

20 Top DOJ Mueller Guys “Accidentally” Deleted Phone Data Before Being Investigated

Newly released records from the Department of Justice reveal that multiple top members of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigative team claim to have “accidentally wiped” data off phones they used during the anti-Trump probe.

Many devices were wiped or otherwise disabled before DOJ authorities were able to access and examine them or the records they contained, including that of disgraced former FBI lawyer Lisa Page.

According to email correspondence between the Special Counsel’s Office and the DOJ Office of the Inspector General, Page’s phone had been reset to factory settings, “and therefore all data was wiped from the device” before the OIG received it.
her devices were left in airplane mode with either incorrect or no passwords provided, rendering the data inaccessible.

Probably can’t prosecute them, but maybe they could be posted to northern Alaska for a few years.

Biden’s World ... a different kind of handicap

image  image

Christina’s World, 1948, by American painter Andrew Wyeth

The woman in the painting is Anna Christina Olson (3 May 1893 – 27 January 1968). She probably suffered from Charcot–Marie–Tooth disease, a genetic polyneuropathy. Wyeth was inspired to create the painting when he saw her crawling across a field while he was watching from a window in the house.

A close family member has CMT, but he doesn’t look that good in a dress.

Biden, on the other hand, like last week’s fish, is falling apart from the top down.

Your daily not-exactly COVID crap

The Big HCQ For RA Study Results Are Out

In this large-scale, international, real-world data network study, hydroxychloroquine appears to be largely safe for short-term use in patients with rheumatoid arthritis compared with sulfasalazine, but when used in combination with azithromycin, this therapy carries a relative risk of 2·19 for cardiovascular death compared with hydroxychloroquine combined with amoxicillin. The collective experience of almost a million patients builds our confidence in the evidence around the safety profile of hydroxychloroquine. In line with consensus expert guidance, our findings suggest that a cautious assessment of cardiovascular risk is needed before initiating high-dose hydroxychloroquine or hydroxychloroquine plus azithromycin combination therapy, and in long-term monitoring of patients with rheumatoid arthritis, especially those with cardiovascular risk factors.

This long paper is chock full of heavy duty complex statistical analysises, and covers a multi-source multinational dataset of nearly a million Rheumatoid Arthritis patients over the course of nearly 20 years.

Sulfasalzine is not an antibiotic, it is an inflammatory used to treat ulcerative colitis. This study really has nothing to do with COVID-19, but it does a very thorough job of assessing the risk levels of long term and long term higher dose use of HCQ. And we’re talking years and years of usage.

It turns out, that at least for RA, HCQ is a bit safer for your heart than sulfasalazine in the short run (both incidences were quite low), but HCQ and azithromycin (antibiotic for respiratory infections) are a bit more than twice the risk (2.19 times higher) of HCQ and amoxicillin (a generic antibiotic). Heart problem incidences for both of those combinations were also pretty low.

So don’t go taking big doses of HCQ and antibiotics for your arthritis for long periods of time without getting a good heart workup first, and probably regularly thereafter.

Surely this should put paid to the hysteria of using normal doses of HCQ for a week, two at the most, for Covid-19. But to be fair, there might be a better antibiotic to mate it with, if the patient is found to have heart problems.

Diana Rigg, 82

Dame Diana Rigg, of James Bond and “The Avengers” fame, has died “peacefully” at 82.

The acclaimed actress known for her role as Contessa Teresa di Vicenzo, the only Bond girl to ever marry 007, Rigg was bestowed her “Dame” title in 1994 for her contributions to all things drama.

The iconic Brit suffered from cancer and died surrounded by her family Thursday morning.

“My Beloved Ma died peacefully in her sleep early this morning, at home, surrounded by family,” her daughter, “Bletchley Circle” actress Rachael Stirling, told the Sun. “She died of cancer diagnosed in March, and spent her last months joyfully reflecting on her extraordinary life, full of love, laughter and a deep pride in her profession. I will miss her beyond words.”

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.

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

image

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?



BIG FAT WARNING FROM MEMORIAL SLOAN KETTERING:
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

image

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.

Right.

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.

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.

Biden Picks Kamala Harris For VP

I can’t. I just can’t.

Biden VP Choice: Kamala Harris

“She makes history as the first Black woman to serve as a major political party’s VP pick”

Oh how brave, how strong, how empowering. How false and hollow an accomplishment.

And Fox’s headline ... OMG ... “Biden taps Kamala Harris as running mate”. Heels up!

Kamala Harris, the politically shrewd California senator with a law enforcement background that has caused some tensions with the progressive left, was announced Tuesday as Joe Biden’s running mate.

She makes history as the first Black woman to serve as a major political party’s VP pick. The Biden campaign said Biden and Harris will deliver remarks together on Wednesday in Wilmington, Delaware.

“I’ve decided that Kamala Harris is the best person to help me take this fight to Donald Trump and Mike Pence and then to lead this nation starting in January 2021,” Biden said in an email to supporters.

Biden also tweeted: “I have the great honor to announce that I’ve picked @KamalaHarris — a fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants — as my running mate.”

He added: “Back when Kamala was Attorney General, she worked closely with Beau. I watched as they took on the big banks, lifted up working people, and protected women and kids from abuse. I was proud then, and I’m proud now to have her as my partner in this campaign.”

The Trump campaign also released a statement from Katrina Pierson, a Trump 2020 senior adviser, that said: “In her failed attempt at running for president, Kamala Harris gleefully embraced the left’s radical manifesto, calling for trillions of dollars in new taxes and backing Bernie Sanders’ government takeover of health care. She is proof that Joe Biden is an empty shell being filled with the extreme agenda of the radicals on the left.”

This shouldn’t come as a surprise to any of you. Politico made the call at the beginning of the month, and many others had figured out that from Biden’s limited field of choices, seeing how his search was utterly sexist and racist in demanding a black woman, this one was the least atrocious of a stupefyingly horrible bunch.

Feral Child Killers

The Little White Kid Next Door

A five-year-old boy is dead after a Wilson, North Carolina, man reportedly ran up to the child while he was playing in a neighborhood street and fatally shot the child in the head. According to a report from WRAL-TV, the shooting took place on Sunday.

Cannon Hinnant was playing outside his father’s house on the dusky summer evening when their neighbor — 25-year-old Darius N. Sessoms — charged Cannon, produced a handgun, and shot him in the head.

The child’s seven-year-old and eight-year-old siblings witnessed the murder.

First responders came to the scene and transported the little boy to Wilson Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Doris Labrant, a neighbor, said she witnessed Sessoms running up to Cannon, putting the gun to his head, and firing the weapon before fleeing the scene into his own home.
...
Authorities took Sessoms into custody on Monday night and charged him with first-degree murder.

“5 yr old Cannon Hinnant was executed in front of his sisters for accidentally riding a bike on his neighbors lawn,” producer and director Robby Starbuck posted. “There’s no pain our justice system can impose on his killer Darius Sessoms that‘ll equate to justice. CNN & MSNBC haven’t even covered it.”
