    Lo and behold, just days after Berman's being taken out, SDNY's case against Jeffrey Epstein's child victim procurer Ghislaine Maxwell finally proceeds after having been sat on for years. https://jonathanturley.org/2020/07/02/epstein-confidante-maxwell-arrested-in-new-hampshire/

    Remember the people who said Hydroxychloroquine will kill you? That its efficacy was merely anecdotal? Remember the pharmacists who refused to fill Doctor's prescriptions? The Democrat governors who interfered with supplies, hoarded, hid, supplies of the drug? Premeditated Conspiracy to Commit Mass Injury and Death.

    Jon, Just for the reader, here is a bolded headline to that link and some excerpts: Epstein Confidante Maxwell Arrested In New Hampshire [Updated] Here is the indictment if anyone is interested. Also, a video right out of the oven of the official press conference about Maxwell's arrest. This case shows AG Bill Barr's method of working. Re investigations, he's a plodder and keeps a tight ship on leaks. When the time comes he and his staff believe they have an air-tight case, they clean the path (like getting rid of Berman through political channels), then swoop in and arrest bad guys who have no idea what hit them. I bet there are a lot of Deep Staters who are observing this very process and, suddenly as their arrogance turns into bile and goes down their throats with a big-ass gulp, are contemplating a move to another country that has no extradition treaty. And, as you keep reminding readers, the people who disparaged as a conspiracy theory and a sign of warped non-Objectivist epistemology the idea that elites controlled other elites through pedophilia-connected blackmail are silent about this. Reality doesn't fit the story they keep telling themselves where they are the superior good guys. From their words and deeds, they are protectors of science and reason and defenders of decent people of prominence who don't deserve to be smeared. That's the story they tell themselves. In reality, as the investigations are now proving and later prosecutions and jail will prove, many of their public heroes are pedophiles and have been blackmailed for years because of it. Some way to do philosophy and epistemology if it blinds people that much, huh? Let's just say I'm enjoying the show. Michael

    Beginning to test the people's responses to tyranny. Do those in the buildings resist? Do citizens not subject to this lockdown intervene? Learning and practicing for when they release the next bug as pretext for total police state? Food rationing. Necessary? Or normalization of it for near future, much more intense, false flag mass imprisonments?

    Klaatu: I am leaving soon, and you will forgive me if I speak bluntly. The universe grows smaller every day, and the threat of aggression by any group, anywhere, can no longer be tolerated. There must be security for all or no one is secure. Now, this does not mean giving up any freedom except the freedom to act irresponsibly. Your ancestors knew this when they made laws to govern themselves and hired policemen to enforce them. We of the other planets have long accepted this principle. We have an organization for the mutual protection of all planets and for the complete elimination of aggression. The test of any such higher authority is, of course, the police force that supports it. For our policemen, we created a race of robots. Their function is to patrol the planets in space ships like this one ?and preserve the peace. In matters of aggression, we have given them absolute power over us; this power can not be revoked. At the first sign of violence, they act automatically against the aggressor. The penalty for provoking their action is too terrible to risk. The result is that we live in peace, without arms or armies, secure in the knowledge that we are free from aggression and war free to pursue more profitable enterprises. Now, we do not pretend to have achieved perfection, but we do have a system, and it works. I came here to give you these facts. It is no concern of ours how you run your own planet. But if you threaten to extend your violence, this Earth of yours will be reduced to a burned-out cinder. Your choice is simple: Join us and live in peace, or pursue your present course and face obliteration. We shall be waiting for your answer; the decision rests with you.

    btw - Scott has a bug up his ass about President Trump's Mount Rushmore speech being called "unifying." He thinks there are many who don't feel unified by American history, so presenting American history is not effective persuasion. He doesn't see the erasure of history as a bad thing. And he thinks statues have no value at all, symbolic or otherwise. I think I got all that right from the recent videos of him I've watched. It's one of his weirder positions, seeing how he claims to be an expert at persuasion. Michael

    Jon, Scott has a leftie side that blinds him at times. (For example, he thinks men weightlifters who become trans should be allowed to compete in official sports events against real women. Why? Because not all women are small. Blah blah blah...) But, to the crux of his presupposition, President Trump's campaign is defending the American way of life. That could be considered backward-looking. (To me it isn't. Defense against an organized attack is present-looking and future-looking to me.) But one thing is not backward looking even in impression: Rebuilding America's Economy. How is Rebuilding America's Economy and making it even greater than before not future-oriented? If I thought about this a little, I could come up with a bunch of things. Besides, if Kanye West did run for real, many of the blacks who like him like President Trump. So if they migrated their vote to Kanye, how would that help President Trump? This is not one of Scott's best moments. Michael

    There is no impact. It is a typical bad cold. They tell stories that indicate otherwise. Lasting impacts stories. Lies. Shutting down has had enormous negative impacts, but those were not caused by too many old people dying, they were from intentionally shutting down economies, which were political calculations having nothing to do with the new cold.

    When he says, "Why are the press running medicine?" it makes me wonder how many leftists will even comprehend what he's saying. I think a lot of people are literally that far gone that they wouldn't even recognize the risks, let alone the blatantly corrupt actions, of this informal hierarchy of "legitimate" information. I wonder is you asked a leftist, "When has the media EVER agreed with Trump?" and if they would even know what the point of the question was. If they agreed with Trump very rarely, you'd have some evidence that it wasn't purely politics, but if they NEVER agree with Trump? It's truly shocking what they've been able to get away with.

    Both of his statistical claims are vague and false. The USA's 7-day average of daily deaths are down about 77% since the peak (link). Does "fatality rate" mean deaths per million population or deaths/cases? Either way, his claim is false. If it is deaths per million population, the USA's is 7th highest in the world for countries with more than 10 million population (link). If it is death/cases, the USA's is pretty good, but S. Korea's and Taiwan's are far lower.

    In the first nine seconds of this video Trump is asked about his remark about slowing down testing. His response was “I don’t kid.” Will subjectivists MSK and Jon still try to twist and mangle “I don’t kid” into “I was joking” or “It was humor”?

    Jon, I don't feel bad for them and I do hope it hurts them over and over and over. That's a quip, but it's not--not really. I am actually being kind when I say that. I gave up crack cocaine. Had I not done that, I would be dead right now. The only way I managed to do that was to have people around me who did not feel bad for me when I fucked up. They listened, but they did not feel bad for me. And they let me know that it will continue to hurt over and over and over. Each time. They also said I had no one to blame but myself for allowing myself to continue. That there was a path out, but I had to be the one who took it. They couldn't take it for me. Those were the kindest people--to me in my life--I ever knew. Michael

    Big win in the Supreme Court for the Electoral College today. And it was unanimous. Supreme Court rules against 'faithless' electors Here's another article. Supreme Court: Electoral College Must Vote For Their State’s Popular Vote Winner They played games with this in the appeals courts, but the Supreme Court Justices were having none of it. To repeat, unanimous. That's probably why the reporting in the fake news media about this were CYA articles that got little prominence. The Democrats can't game this rule to cheat anymore. That form of cheating, at least, is done. Over. Finished. This is a big deal. Probably the biggest deal that happened in government on this day. It is kinda funny, though. In one of the two cases involved in this Supreme Court decision, three members of the Electoral College were supposed to vote for Hillary Clinton, but instead voted for Colin Powell. Whaaaaat?!!! Yup. Colin Fucking Powell. Michael

    " "Coronavirus" is a wider category than the types of coronavirus which produce common cold symptoms. Severe acute respiratory syndrome, which COVID-19 produces in susceptible people, is in a different league of bad from "a bad cold." " I disagree. It looks to me like every other bad cold I saw in my over fifty years. The bad ones killed the old peope like it was the plague. The rest of us got it and called it a bad cold. The kids got it and didn't slow down. Same as today. Bad cold. Indeed, "bad cold" is exaggeration for 9X% of the population. Worldwide hundreds of millions of us have likely already "had" it and it didn't even make us feel sick. Yes, the 2020 Scamdemic is also mass murder on the grounds of keeping people electively out of hospitals which will result in delayed cancer discoveries, for starters, and deaths (2020 Scamdemic murders.) And their emptiness and the layoffs demonstrate that the nation's resources were never going to be stressed by covid, have not even been challenged in the slightest by covid. All their front line stories are bullshit. The staffs at all the hospitals spent the time making Tik-Tok videos and went home with layoff slips.

    Trump's "slow the testing down" remarks in context: Merlin's tag line: "I expect attack ads aired by Democrats for the 2020 election will exploit Trump's inane remark." I think Michael is likely right about quippage-- and that Trump was riffing, and that he probably does not care a whit about 'attack ads' from the Democrats. On the other hand, the Lincoln Project (a passel of nasty anti-Trumpist operatives who supposedly retain loyalty to Republicanism) have been banging out ads for months. See their YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/TheLincolnProject/videos The Lincoln Project ad including the remarks ... it's hard to know if the Democratic Party ads will rise to this level of emotive reasoning/loaded language ...

    Emphases added .... You say testing is important so that a person can start taking the appropriate actions. For 99.X% of the population the appropriate actions for the common cold are rest and fluids. I think you are making a category error. First, are you suggesting or claiming that the SARS-CoV-2 virus does not differ appreciably from the family of viruses that cause the common cold? Are you claiming that the course of a cold infection is the same as COVID-19 infection? Secondly, can you provide a quote or link from the CDC that supports your basic contentions (that SARS-CoV-2 == Common Cold Virus)? Are you prepared to offer an argument that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is not novel? If you want to use CDC materials to to support your beliefs, you may be stymied from persuading readers. From the CDC's page on Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19): I suggest that this belief is not warranted ... It's a malformed question. I cannot get a test for the common cold in my community, but I can get a test to see if I have a COVID-19 infection. I wonder if your beliefs are influenced by unreliable information. It's not difficult to find unreliable or misleading information these days. For example (from a Fact Check at USA Today The Facebook post featured in the above story, as it stands at the moment.

    My bad. He already signed it on July 3. Just to emphasize the Executive Order, here is another link to it. Executive Order on Building and Rebuilding Monuments to American Heroes There is one hell of a booby trap in this Executive Order for a "National Garden of American Heroes" (the official name given). It is scheduled to be opened in 2026. This means after President Trump leaves office. The booby trap is that it ensnares the president who follows him with a huge project celebrating American history. I predict that the next president will be an American patriot and not an anti-American agent of change, so that is not really a booby trap. But should a leftie or other person with an ideology against American values be elected, this measure ensures a media shit-storm if such person tampers with it. Another interesting thing is the definition of historically significant American. Although some names were mentioned, the number of statues will be vast. Just to be a smart-ass, I bolded something. Also, this National Garden will have a central place to exist, but there will be much more all over the country. The list of people President Trump provided as examples of American heroes made me jump for joy. I think this list was provided specifically because some of these individuals have been attacked or erased from school history books. (My bold.) On a Personal Note I have been bitching about the erasure of Daniel Boone from American history books since 2010. If felt so damn good to hear President Trump say Daniel Boone's name in the Mount Rushmore speech and see his name in this Executive Order. I bet there are a hell of a lot of Millenials scratching their heads and asking, "Who?" Michael

The book was published in 1902 by none other than the J. B. Lippincott Compsny, the company where I was an editor in the 1970s. Here's some of Yarvin's discussion. The Shortest-Way, which he references, was a "black propaganda" pamphlet by Daniel Defoe, full title The Shortest-Way with the Dissenters. Ellen

    All Polls are Wrong. I don't see why any present poll or polling average should give comfort to the Democratic campaign, because it seems like the real campaign hasn't started. About the only areas that might be of concern to the GOP campaign are seemingly 'iffy' contests for the Senate. I will put down a marker here of so-called swing state polls, and return once all the votes are counted in these (maybe) key races. Arizona -- today Real Clear Politics aggregate of surveys suggests that Democrat Mark Kelly is ~11% in front of the incumbent GOP senator McSally. Colorado -- RCP's page suggests (on very very scant data) that the incumbent Corey Gardner is ~10% behind challenger John Hickenlooper. Iowa -- GOP senator Jody Ernst won over her 2014 Democratic opponent by 8.5%. RCP has no information on the present race, but a mid-June Iowa Register survey suggested a three-point advantage to the Democratic candidate Theresa Greenfield. Maine -- up for re-election is Susan Collins, who won her 2014 contest by 14 points. RCP currently shows a slight lead for her 2020 opponent Sarah Gideon. Montana -- RCP has no data to present on the race here between Steve Daines and Steve Bullock. But I include this one to test the mettle of the Cook Political Report, who has put the race in the 'toss-up' column. North Carolina -- the incumbent is Thom Tillis of the GOP. He faces Cal Cunningham. RCP rates this contest a 'toss-up' on scant data. So, if Arizona, Maine and Colorado are lost by the GOP on November 3, then the Senate will be even-steven, 50 to 50.

    The WHO has outdone itself in corruption. They recently started a trial of the drug hydroxychloroquine, intentionally giving patients a near lethal dose so as to – obviously – make the drug look dangerous. Meryl Nass and others saw what they were doing and exposed it. Only then did WHO stop the trial. The following articles are by Dr. Meryl Nass. Even worse than 'Recovery,' potentially lethal hydroxychloroquine study in patients near death WHO and UK trials use potentially lethal hydroxychloroquine dose--according to WHO consultant 1. In the UK Recovery trial, and in WHO Solidarity trials, HCQ is used in a non-therapeutic, toxic and potentially lethal dose. 2. HCQ is furthermore being given, in clinical trials, too late in the disease course to determine its value against SARS-CoV-2. 3. Collection of limited safety data in the Solidarity trials serves to protect trial investigators and sponsors from disclosures of expected adverse drug effects, including death. 4. It appears that WHO has tried to hide information on the hydroxychloroquine doses used in its Solidarity trial. Fortunately, the information is discoverable from registries of its national trials. 5. The conclusions to be drawn ... ... a) WHO and other national health agencies, universities and charities have conducted large clinical trials that were designed so hydroxychloroquine would fail to show benefit in the treatment of Covid-19, perhaps to advantage much more expensive competitors and vaccines in development, which have been heavily supported by Solidarity and Recovery trial sponsors and WHO sponsors. ... b) In so doing, these agencies and charities have de facto conspired to increase the number of deaths in these trials. ... c) In so doing, they have conspired to deprive billions of people from potentially benefiting from a safe and inexpensive drug, when used properly, during a major pandemic. This might contribute to prolongation of the pandemic, massive economic losses and many increased cases and deaths. How a false hydroxychloroquine narrative was created, and more
