So beautiful.

Know what a U.S. Marshall is?

U.S. Marshalls operate independently of mayors, cops, sheriffs, councilmen, governors, etc., and they serve federal, United States Justice Department indictments and they make federal arrests not subject to any local interference.

No fraudulent Russian interference investigation, no amateur impeachment shitshow, no Scamdemic and no engineered race war will stop what is coming.

Nothing can stop what is coming.

 

 

US Marshals operate with the permission of the local sheriff.

Not that permission would be denied.

Same, same for the FBI and DEA.

It is intriguing.  I've been fairly obsessed for about a year with thinking about details.  I find microbiology fascinating. I wouldn't be wise, however, to talk about details.  The schemers are

Oh Hi, Billy.

You think it funny that respected men in suits own the cartels and not the short fat thin-mustached greasy guys with no shirt who "eluded the police of the world for decades" who were the actual billionaires behind it all?

You have always bought the latter, haven't you?

You are a painfully simple person, Billy.

Search Romney Mexico drug dead

Is it strange that they moved to Mexico in 1880s but they send George to Michigan to be Governor and Mitt to Massachusetts to be Governor and maybe President of the US, but they stay living down there in Mexico to grow chiles, and surrounded by dangerous drug cartels?

Search Mitt Boston cartel Bain

Is it strange that Mitt shows up in Boston from nowhere (wait no, not from nowhere, from the Mexican chile farm he was born on) shows up in Boston with Billions of dollars and goes on a Wall Street acquisition binge?

Maybe they have to inform, so that there are no mishaps, but I would be surprised if actual law is that a County Sheriff can say no to U.S. Marshalls who are the armed police of the Justice Department.

In the current case, the District has no Counties or Sheriffs. There may be neighbor Sheriffs present with permission of the District of Columbia, but the District itself has no Sheriff to say no, even if Sheriffs really can reject them.

Seen how Democrats are trying frantically to diminish, delegitimize, defund and eliminate police?

They don't want to clean up the police anymore. They don't want to weed out the bad anymore.

Now it's: We don't need any police. Minneapolis City Council is trying to disband its police department wholesale.

Is that extreme?

Do ordinary explanations do well at explaining extreme events? Ordinary such as, they want to end police racism, they want to punish the racist police, they want to save taxpayers money, etc.

Or should you expect an extreme, shocking, maybe even hard-to-accept explanation, for extreme events?

They want to eliminate police departments.

Try to make it make sense. ou are a Democrat. You and your Party have ruled the city, every office, for decades. You and your Party built the police and commanded its direction, for decades. And now you desperately want it disbanded and scattered to the winds. Tey hold the offices they hold and on paper they control the police, but do you believe they still have control? Why would they be clamoring to disband organizations of power and authority that they still control? Are the departments infiltrated by Army Counterintelligence and under Trump's control now? Are the police, YOUR POLICE, who covered up your crimes for decades, who know some of what you've really been up to for decades ...

You laughed at the warrantless claims I made about Epstein, too, until the world learned they were true.

You are a moron with a conspicuous record of defending evil.

Oh no, it was untrue! The mass-murdering piece of shit may vote for President Trump, after all.

Spokesman, what a pussy. Or, maybe he has been at gitmo since the day this picture was taken at opium Poppy Bush's funeral.

I don't even remember what article he wrote for that National Embarrassment, but, at this point, I doubt he wants it remembered as one of his finest hours...

Have any of you checked in on Dr. Comrade Sonia lately?

She has drifted substantially from objectivity and rationality.

If you read enough of her tweets and retweets, certain patterns emerge, and take on psychologically revelatory significance, and I it think lends some perspective to her oddly public behavior over the years.

Who hurt you so badly, Dr. Comrade?

OANN did a piece, as far as I know,  taking apart the innocence of the 75 yr old demonstrator in Buffalo.

Leaving aside the feint push.

He was filmed talking with the photographer who later filmed his fall.

He was waving his phone near the holstered gun of the leo.

He tweeted F the police. He was on an anarchist website.

His name is Martin Gugina.

Heres a piece echoing OANN news. https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/06/06/buffalo-officials-duped-by-professional-antifa-provocateur-arrest-

In other news......OANN filed a defamation suit against R Madcow. An Obama appointed judge found her comment saying OANN is a communist network news, to be a personal opinion, she's not a journalist an entertainer.

Jon,

Elitist to the core. Always was.

Even when she pissed off Peikoff & Co. and lost her claim to Objectivism fame.

I have several other observations about her that leave me mildly curious, but nothing nails it yet.

Besides, I want to think about other things that are relevant to my life. She isn't.

So, for me, I'll leave it at this:

Not my kind of people.

If anyone wants to talk about her, though, have at it.

Let me amend that.

I only thought of this just now. Diana's personality is a very good template for a Randian-like villain for my fiction-writing. Not the Toohey type. More like the Lillian Rearden type--just switch out phony love and replace it with phony friendship and the throughline beats are similar. Not all friends, just prominent people she targets for damage (like Lillian did with Hank). With lust in her heart, at that. 🙂 

So there. Nobody is useless. Diana might work as a template for me. Granted, that's not much, but at least it's relevant to my life.

🙂

She seems to genuinely struggle with some things, which she shares on her Twitter, and over which I genuinely feel for her. Depressive days, for example. Great fear during the height of the Scamdemic. It is especially hard to watch knowing as I do that the side she so energetically supports is responsible for affecting so many hundreds of millions of people around the world the way she was affected.

Unrelated, we both live in Colorado. There is a sweet little slopestyle bicycle park with pump tracks and whoop-de-doo sequencesin her town. I took my daughters there when they were like 10 and 12. We earlier descended Boreas Pass on bicycle and my girls were calling it Boring Ass Pass and then they were impatient at the bike park so I only got to ride it a little. The ones in my towns are better anyway.

"n order to ferret out any underlying philosophical causes of these systemic problems at TOC, I also re-read... Truth and Toleration, for the first time in 10 years. .... strong disagreement with critical elements of the arguments on almost every issue: moral judgment, tolerance, sanction, and Objectivism as an open system. None of my disagreements are minor. All seem to bear upon... disturbing trajectory over the years. But I regard the last, that Objectivism is an "open system," as the most widely misunderstood, deeply flawed, and practically dangerous of the lot -- and as the basic source of my own unhappiness....." 2004

10 Years after and 10 yrs since. Boy, what a decade flying Solo makes.

Just a cursory reading makes note of how far the once mighty public intellectuals have fallen.

Polls are fake news. The irony is they help the targeted fakees for the bad guys believe the shit the other bad guys write.

Jon,

I hear you about feeling sorry for Diana. I used to feel for her myself since she is very good at expressing hurt feelings and vulnerability. Part of my initial interest in her was that empathy and the feeling she was honestly trying to grapple with ideas.

I changed when I saw her trash innocent people without mercy or any consideration of fairness, both personally and idea-wise. She can switch to full outrage feather on a dime and she has shown every sign of liking it. The devastation she has left behind doesn't exist for her. At least, I have never seen her try to make things right, even when she later owned up to being wrong.

When she went to ARI and owned up to being wrong big-time (so she believed), she gave lip service to apologizing more or less, but in action, she did nothing. It was all power play. She started by aping Peikoff's form and manner of speaking in his podcasts in her own early podcasts. And it got worse until a few ARI underlings finally threw her out through that weird site they made about 8 or 9 years ago called Checking Premises. She tried to run something Objectivish on her own with email lists and so on, but it floundered and she moved on to other things. (I believe she does athletics or something like that now.)

Back then, if I remember correctly, there were more articles and posts against her on Checking Premises. Now there are a few since a few other topics have been added (mostly stuff by the standard top ARI folks like Peikoff, Binswanger, etc., but also a broadside against Stephen Speicher for some reason). The stuff that remained against Diana is--as I remember it--just as harsh today as it was back then.

At any rate, that empathy you feel for her goes only one way, from you to her. It will never go back in your direction even if she should run over you and your bike with a truck--by accident or otherwise.

Michael
