  3. The Baggage Cart ... HA Goodman (who predicted a Trump victory in 2016) has been declaring that Clinton will be on the ballot for almost 18 months. You can catch his latest, "Madam Secretary Commences Nomination Acceptance as Former VP Disparages Millions of Voters" ... Another person with a large YouTube account is David Pakman. He's a so-called progressive who has a reasonable tone and temper (he had a lengthy conversation with Tim Pool) ... "SHOCK: The Case for Trump's Re-Election"

  6. I'll wait till the end of October (surprises?) before I post a final prediction. My last prediction was that Kamala Harris would not be chosen to be on the ticket with Biden ... this should be known in a few days. I am currently stocking metaphorical "crow" ... What makes Lichtman's prediction intriguing or notable is that he has was only wrong once (Gore/Bush), and that his 13 Keys criteria are mostly the same as ever. And that none of the criteria take any notice of polling. Enphases added. Also ... He may be "emotional," but the criteria still remain, Peter. The proof is in the pudding, so to speak, not in the heart of the baker.

  7. Over on the front porch ... I am not persuaded that Kamala Harris had a 'cosmetic procedure.'
  8. Allan Lichtman is the fellow who predicted the 2016 Trump victory -- by using his unique '13 Keys' model. From the description at the YouTube page for the video below: "Right now, polls say Joe Biden has a healthy lead over President Trump. But we’ve been here before (cue 2016), and the polls were, frankly, wrong. One man, however, was not. The historian Allan Lichtman was the lonely forecaster who predicted Mr. Trump’s victory in 2016 — and also prophesied the president would be impeached. That’s two for two. But Professor Lichtman’s record goes much deeper. In 1980, he developed a presidential prediction model that retrospectively accounted for 120 years of U.S. election history. Over the past four decades, his system has accurately called presidential victors, from Ronald Reagan in ’84 to, well, Mr. Trump in 2016."
  9. Doctorow has a way with words. If something like "Magical Thinking" exists ... 'The Apophenic's Curse"! "When people are pedophiles" and "when they are pedophiles" ... relates immediately to accusations and false accusations. How can you tell the difference between a false and a true accusation? Is Chrissy Teigen a pedophile? Every accusation is true and well-founded -- except for the accusations that are false and unfounded. Again, using a cognitive before normative framework, is Chrissy Teigen guilty of child sexual abuse? Yes or no? Magical thinking. The video cued to "it's always gotta be pedophiles." Q is a hoax and a scam.
  10. The 'researcher' did not think to include a link to the patent site from which she took screenshots. This item is accessible via the Patent number, in this case 10,130, 71.

  11. Atrocious stuff from the TDS corps ... ?
  12. What really happened to Kamala Harris's face? I totally missed that.
  13. Is the reigning assumption that Kamala Harris had a facelift? An 'insta-lift'? A 'cosmetic procedure'? I think she is unlikely to be picked, given "Kamala is a Cop," and of mixed heritage, and just not progressive enough for the Berniecrats.
  14. "We are the news now ..." Martin Geddes is one of the erudite QAnon folks out there with a largish support network and using a real-world name.
  15. The President suggests full steam ahead on a vaccine against SARS-CoV-2 ... President Obama coaches Joe Biden through a conversation ...
  16. There is a movie featured on the front porch: Poker and Politics spent some time critiquing "Out of Shadows" ... a fun read for skeptics. More Poker Politics ...
  17. Hammer down on QAnon ... Twitter bans 7,000 QAnon accounts, limits 150,000 others as part of broad crackdown
  18. We'll see how the two candidates deal with each other on September 29 in North Bend, Indiana. By that time the presumptive Democratic nominee will have named his running mate and will have been campaigning with her for two months. I expect we shall discover which particular She is knighted by the first week of August. Biden will be 78 on November 20. I would probably listen to my great-aunt Pat, who is 101 years old and lives in Seattle. It likely would not surprise you to know that Canada as a whole is rather more liberal than the USA, and that surveys show Trump is not popular with a majority of Canadians. In our system you don't get to power without leading a party in a legislature and commanding at least a plurality of seats. Speaking of aged and possibly at risk of dementia, where the heck is Ba'al?
