  • Saturday Lecture Series: Hydrogel and Trauma

    Filed under Medicine, Military, Open thread, saturday lecture series at February 11th, 2017 - 6:00 am

    Good Morning all, welcome to grand rounds here at Blogmocracy General Hospital, today Trauma Team Blue will be giving the lecture on new ways to stop the hemorrhaging in a trauma situation….Even far from the battlefield, hemorrhage is a serious threat to anyone with a severe wound. Each year, it kills more Americans than those who died in the entire Vietnam war.

    This is going to be a very, very important advancement in trauma and resuscitation.

     

    Scientists in the US have developed a hydrogel-based wound sealant that can be easily applied to stem severe bleeding then gently and precisely removed to allow surgery.

    On the 3 October 1993, Corporal James Smith, a 21-year-old US army ranger on operations in Mogadishu, bled to death from a gunshot wound to his thigh and pelvis. You might already know the story of that night, recounted in Mark Bowden’s book Black hawk down. The harrowing story of Smith’s death highlights how difficult it can be for a medic to control internal bleeding before it’s too late – especially if they are pinned down at night by enemy fire, hours from surgical help. Even far from the battlefield, hemorrhage is a serious threat to anyone with a severe wound. Each year, it kills more Americans than those who died in the entire Vietnam war.

    Now, a new material could both save lives and reduce pain by combating problems that are ignored by current wound treatments. Boston University’s Mark Grinstaff, who led the work, explains that the market for wound sealants has two critical gaps. First, conventional dressings can be difficult to apply. ‘Imagine trying to pack a pre-formed piece of gauze inside a wound to your groin or neck,’ he says. Second, current wound sealants only focus on reducing blood loss, ‘but what happens when a patient reaches hospital?’ asks Grinstaff. ‘These sealants can’t easily be removed.’ After irreversibly bonding to the wound, the sealant needs to be cut out, causing yet more tissue damage. The already injured patient is further traumatized.

    Mixing the dendron with the cross-linker gives a hydrogel that can be dissolved when required

    Grinstaff’s laboratory’s solution combines dendrons with cross-linking molecules. When mixed together, these two components react to form a flexible, thioester-linked hydrogel. Grinstaff explains that the material can be sprayed onto a wound. ‘It gels within one second, forming a soft, clear bandage that sticks to tissue,’ significantly reducing blood loss.

    The bandage can later be removed by adding a solution containing cysteine methyl ester, which dissolves the hydrogel via a thiol–thioester exchange reaction. Unlike the mechanical cutting currently necessary for sealant removal, Grinstaff’s chemistry-based approach avoids tissue damage and could offer surgeons fine control when re-exposing injuries, simplifying operations.

      And here it is. Last nite, I said I don’t believe for a minute that all those people at Jason Chaffetz’ townhall were really his constituents, I’m betting they were bused in.

      Indivisable Guide is the name of the group behind at least some of this.

      The secretary of Indivisible Guide, Angel Padilla, works for the National Immigration Law Center, which is funded by Soros through his Open Society Foundations. And treasurer Matt Traidi is the research team director for the Service Employees International Union, a major donor to and endorser of Democrat politicians, Capital Research Center notes.

      []

      Indivisible Guide boasts that it has disrupted town halls held by Republican lawmakers in Utah, California, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Michigan, and Nebraska. And the group, which amplifies its message over Twitter and other social media, promises it isn’t finished.

      Politico reported that local activists shouted down Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich. Police had to escort Rep. Tom McClintock, R-Calif., at a town hall meeting because of protesters.

      One CNN report presented the disruption of a town hall meeting held Thursday night by Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, as a sign of a “grassroots” reaction to Trump such as the taxpayer-based tea party movement was against the Washington establishment:

      @ Guggi:

      Hi Guggi,

      Ok, you may not know this. See that ‘Agent Name’ listing as ‘Legalzoom’? Legalzoom is an online site set up by one of O.J. Simpson’s lawyers to allow people to do simple legal stuff like incorporate businesses without a lot of money going to lawyers/paralegals. It’s sort of a legal Walmart on the web. I see it was incorporated Aug 8 2016. Trump became the Republican nominee on July 19, approx 3 weeks prior. The addresses given on this website are so boilerplate, they could be post office boxes. The important information we get out of this is that Shannon Coulter is probably not a ‘marketing’ person at all, but a plant of some kind hiding behind a false front.

      Kathleen Parker’s latest nonsense:

      Trump’s two-year presidency

      Good news: In two years, we’ll have a new president. Bad news: If we make it that long.

      My “good” prediction is based on the Law of the Pendulum. Enough Americans, including most independent voters, will be so ready to shed Donald Trump and his little shop of horrors that the 2018 midterm elections are all but certain to be a landslide — no, make that a mudslide — sweep of the House and Senate. If Republicans took both houses in a groundswell of the people’s rejection of Obamacare, Democrats will take them back in a tsunami of protest.

      Once ensconced, it would take a Democratic majority approximately 30 seconds to begin impeachment proceedings selecting from an accumulating pile of lies, overreach and just plain sloppiness. That is, assuming Trump hasn’t already been shown the exit.

      Or that he hasn’t declared martial law (all those anarchists, you know) and effectively silenced dissent. We’re already well on our way to the latter via Trump’s incessant attacks on the media — “among the most dishonest human beings on Earth” — and press secretary Sean Spicer’s rabid-chihuahua, daily press briefings. (Note to Sean: Whatever he’s promised you, it’s not worth becoming Melissa McCarthy’s punching bag. But really, don’t stop.)

      With luck, and Cabinet-level courage that is not much in evidence, there’s a chance we won’t have to wait two long years, during which, let’s face it, anything could happen. In anticipation of circumstances warranting a speedier presidential replacement, wiser minds added Section 4 to the 25th Amendment, which removes the president if a majority of the Cabinet and the vice president think it necessary, i.e., if the president is injured or falls too ill to serve. Or, by extension, by being so incompetent — or not-quite-right — that he or she poses a threat to the nation and must be removed immediately and replaced by the vice president.

      Aren’t we there, yet?

      The funny thing is that she obviously believes that her fantasies about what it’s like in the Trump White House are reality. Trump isn’t foaming at the mouth, screaming out incoherent rants all day.

      There is absolutely nothing “incompetent” or “not-quite-right” about his behavior.

      Here is the info page on #GrabYourWallet, the boycott effort started by ‘shannon coulter’ – that name is in quotes because I don’t believe anything about this woman anymore.

      The goal of the #GrabYourWallet boycott is to motivate companies stop doing business with the Trump family. This is so we can return as customers as quickly as possible! Here are some ways you can make that happen.

      Tell that to the liberal communities in this state. There’s enough of them now that they can sway the vote their way. Between the Granola communities of Bozeman and Missoula, the reservations, and the government home of Helena, the rest of the state are stuck with the jackass. And actually he only vetoed it twice so far, his scumbag predecessor vetoed it once too. We control the house and senate, but the governorship went to the jackass party for the 4th time in a row.

      Tim Blair, The Daily Telegraph

      Attention, Trump haters! You all want to get rid of the 45th President of the United States, and that’s fair enough, but you’re going about it completely the wrong way.
      Honestly, it’s almost as though none of you has any political­ skills at all. Please sit quietly­ for a time and pay careful attention while you read the following idiot-proof seven-point guide to Trump removal.

      Select an opposing candidate who isn’t actively despised by basically everybody.

      Granted, this would have been better advice prior to last November’s US election but will still come in handy some time before the next election in 2020. Last week NBC presenter Chuck Todd admitted reporters always knew Hillary Clinton was considered unelectable by much of middle America, yet they failed to convey that information.

      “Where I think political correctness got in the way of what we all knew as reporters and didn’t fully deliver was how hated the Clintons were in the heartland,” Todd confessed. “I think we underplayed it a little bit out of political correctness fears.”

      They’ve been underplaying it and missing clear evidence on this for years. Back when Clinton first considered running for the US senate in 1999, her supporters produced bumper stickers reading: “Run, Hillary, Run!” These stickers were very popular in the south. People put them on their pickup trucks.

      On the front.

      Vote.

      This cannot be emphasised enough. You’ll save a lot of effort and energy by marching once to a polling booth on election day than by marching through entire cities afterwards.

      Also, you don’t need to make any signs or banners or big, giant puppet heads.

      According to Republican strategist Evan Siegfried, about one million young voters simply didn’t bother to turn up last November. “They decided to stay home, and that’s what really hurt Hillary Clinton,” he told the ABC.

      Great work, kids.

      Give up the marches and demonstrations.

      They don’t work. No, wait; they do work, but not for your side. Donald Trump’s approval ratings have only increased following all of those shouty anti-Trump rallies.

      People don’t like mobs, which is why demonstrations don’t work even on the rare occasions when they’re organised by conservatives. Remember the 2011 Canberra rally against the carbon tax? All it did was give leftists years of ammunition for that vile “Ditch the Bitch” sign.

      Here’s what sunkAustralian Labor Prime Ministers Julia Gillard, and also Kevin Rudd: years of precision attacks on the substance and effects of their policies and on things they did and said. By mid-2013, Gillard was so diminished that she couldn’t survive a Daily Telegraph front page showing her knitting a toy kangaroo for Prince William.

      “That now-infamous photograph of Julia Gillard knitting was, I think, the last straw,” Fairfax’s Mike Carlton wrote at the time. When even old Mike can pick what’s going on, it’s worth paying attention to the underlying strategies.

      Additionally, if you don’t live in the US, don’t march against any of their elected politicians. There isn’t any point.

      Don’t smash stuff.

      If you must demonstrate, please keep things within the boundaries of civil behaviour, or at least be aware of the legal consequences. The kids who got all smashy and burny at Washington’s post-inauguration rallies evidently didn’t check their local statutes. Under Washington DC law, they now face felony charges.

      Attorney Grandison Hill represented some of the alleged rioters last week during a court appearance. He said his clients were worried. They should be. If they’re convicted of felony rioting, they face up to 10 years in jail.

      Riots have other predictable consequences, too. Last week charmingly outspoken libertarian Milo Yiannopoulos cancelled a University of California speaking engagement after leftist students went on a rampage.

      Pre-publication sales of Milo’s book Dangerous instantly increased by 12,740 per cent. On Sunday it was Amazon’s global number one bestseller, having previously been ranked 642nd. Those rioters were a Milo money-making machine, while the man himself presumably just went back to his hotel room, put his feet up and ordered room service.

      Job done. Easy.

      Ditch the celebrities.

      Donald Trump was a viable celebrity candidate because his policies are of a piece with his circumstances. He’s a rich guy who wants others to get rich.

      By contrast, millionaire leftist celebs pretending to have something in common with people who really do work for a living tend to only look foolish and fraudulent.

      Quit making shit up.

      Social media was full of claims last week that zealous airport officials had handcuffed little children who arrived in the US from countries that were subject to Trump’s temporary immigration ban.

      “Here’s a picture from Dulles Airport the other day of a 4-year-old girl and her parents handcuffed,” claimed one Twitter user. “5-year-old handcuffed at Dulles Airport! What has America come to?” wailed another.

      Problem was, the first image didn’t show anybody in handcuffs and the second image was taken at a Kentucky school two years ago — in Obama’s America.

      When you have to make things up in order to attack someone, normal people will assume — reasonably enough — that facts are insufficient to bring that person down.

      Consider your allies.

      Look around you, anti-Trumpers. Are your comrades really the sort of characters with whom you wish to be associated? Examine their track records. Are they winners? Do they succeed more often than they fail? Do they lie a lot? Would you trust them to look after your children, your property, or even a house pet?

      It could well be that the anti-Trump cause isn’t worth pursuing, simply on the basis of all the losers involved. If so, cut your losses and bail out now. You’ll never have to worry about the above points one through six ever again.

      If you told them that would be a consequence, they’d shrug. Their motive is jealousy and spite, pure and simple. I don’t shop much but when I do business at Nordstrom’s there is a group of sales associates I’ve worked with over the years and I would never DREAM of doing anything that would harm their livelihood. They’ve been wonderful to me, especially when I got sick.

      “…but in the end they will be remembered as a bunch of jealous shrews…”

      True, but not enough. Nobody cares a whit for the good opinions of people they don’t respect in the first place. We know this ‘Coulter’ person lied about her work, which means she’s being paid by other means. I wish I knew how to find out. Maybe then somebody could make HER unemployable and then her boycott of Nordstrom’s would be a moot point.

      And the news pooh pooh’s this. It needs to be specifically called out. This is a case where the left is stealing an Alinsky march on conservatives because conservatives are still pre Trumpian. They are afraid to fight. A Republican having any type of town hall meeting should be prepared to isolate the protestors and call them out for their ill intent. I’d rope off a section of the hall and call it Hilary’s shut up and sit down corner. Supply a bunch of diapers and dunce hats. Escort the loud mouths there and take away their signs.

      good article. Wrong premise. Start looking for the banners that say ‘ungovernable’. The simpletons who are just anti-Trump are the useful idiots in this game. Indivisible Guide isn’t sending disrupters to town hall meetings of Congress members because they don’t like Trump. They’re doing that to kill the relationship between the voters and the elected officials.

      I can’t TELL you how many members have told my husband they won’t have town hall meetings anymore. Sometimes it IS just a local crazy that won’t sit down and shut up, but way too many times it’s been people they’ve never seen before who don’t dress or behave like the people who live there. Instead, they have people in the local communities host small parties at their homes where they can meet constituents 20-30 at a time and actually get to listen to them and explain what Washington looks like.

      The 23-year-old Illinois National soldier from Rock Island died in Iraq after a roadside bomb detonated near the truck she was driving, military officials said Thursday.

      Housby’s truck was part of a convoy hauling cargo to a base at the Baghdad airport on Wednesday when the explosion occurred and she was killed, said Maj. Tim Franklin, a public affairs officer for the Army National Guard.

      Housby, a 2000 graduate of Rock Island High School, was a member of the 1644th Transportation Co., based in Rock Falls. Franklin said Housby was serving her first tour in Iraq.

      Drill, Baby, Drill!

      Trump Just Made The Biggest Sale Of Drilling Rights On Federal Land In 4 Years

      The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) made its largest lease sale in four years, marking the start of President Donald Trump’s plans to expand drilling on federal lands.

      BLM sold drilling rights on 278 parcels of public land for $129.3 million. Bids ranged from $2 per acre to $16,500 per acre. The land sold was mostly located in Wyoming — about half of which is directly controlled by the federal government.

      so I made some chicken stir-fry for supper
      I put a healthy dollop of srircha hot sauce on it because I love hot sauce

      the girl (who never missed a chance to give me crap about putting hot sauce on my food)
      asks…will that help my sinuses? (because it’s 60 something degs here in mid Tenn and the plants think it’s spring, and she is having a MAJOR allergy attack)

      I replied, sure, do you dare try some
      she did, and it did. she’s miffed that it works better than allergy meds…and that I got her to eat hot sauce

      but, she’s breathing better

      Water began pouring over the emergency spillway at Oroville Dam early Saturday for the first time in its 48-year history.

      Unable to release enough water from the dam’s heavily damaged main spillway, officials with the California Department of Water Resources announced that water from the storm-swollen reservoir started flowing over the adjacent emergency spillway at around 8 a.m. Department spokesman Doug Carlson said water was pouring over the emergency structure in what initially was a steady but relatively gentle flow.

      Wonderful!

      I’m a heat addict.

      As an aside, I was sick about a month back and my wife bought this after seeing it on The Price is Right.

      http://www.naturesjeannie.com/gargle-away-throat-care/

      I would recommend NEVER, under any circumstance, put this stuff in your mouth.

      It sort of worked until I gagged due to taste. It actually tried it again because I was in such misery (and it did work), but couldn’t have it in my mouth for more than two seconds without retching.

      Ingredients are: Himalayan Salt, Organic Honey, Licorice Root, Apple Cider Vinegar, Mediterranean Oregano, Lemon, and Cayenne Pepper.

      Each of these things work to some extent.

      They should NOT have been combined.

      Not cowardice — full throated support for Hillary and her ideas. They wanted her to win, they were going to do everything they could to make her win. They just couldn’t pull it off. They weren’t afraid, they were doing their jobs — the press is the public relations arm of the DNC and they were doing everything in their power to get her elected.

      Previous resistance efforts were designed to irritate and draw attention to a cause. Yet, since election day, the array of third-world revolutionary tactics unfolding throughout the culture, Congress, the media, along with the mass manipulation and name calling is designed to overturn the voters’ choice, and punish and destroy the opposition.

      I’m too tired to walk downstairs and retrieve it from the bin, so I’ll post it tomorrow. WaPo started a column some months ago called ‘civilities’ written by a gay man about how to address some conundrums of gay life. Today he wrote about Milo and basically blamed his ‘hateful language’ for the riots. I’ll quote from it tomorrow, but it is hilarious. In the context of your point, tho, it’s important because it foreshadows the tactics they intend to you – the right’s behavior is so abhorrent, people are forced into violence.

      The idea of drinking Saki hot… Was invented to make post WWII American military personal look stupid. One of the Japanese’s upper classes passive-aggressive acts of rebellion against the occupying America troops after the war, that didn’t end up working out quiet the way it was planned.

      I thought Sashimi was just fish. Like carpaccio.

      Sushi is sticky rice rolled in seaweed, then sliced into 1/4 to 1/2 inch wheels. Sashimi is raw fish. A very popular form of Sushi has Sashimi on it, but Sushi itself does not have any raw fish in it.

      I asked you because, well, its one of my pet peeves. Most American’s think that Sushi is raw fish, when in fact it is not. Cooking traditional Japanese foods is how my college girlfriend worked her way through college.

      She was a very good cook, and used to tell me the traditions of how the dishes were prepared and the history of the dishes. I’ve forgotten most of what she told me (hey it was 25 years ago) but sometimes little bits of it come back to me at odd moments.

      I understand and respect the traditional preparations.

      I’ve worked in the restaurant industry, but never Asian cuisine.

      It’s why I used the carpaccio reference, but I understand the pet peeve.

      I honestly don’t understand Asian cooking much at all. My experience is in Italian and Americanized cuisine, and on top of that I mostly worked FOH (when I was younger and better looking). But I’ve done a fair amount of prep and line.

      Hamburg airport in Germany was briefly evacuated and at least 50 people were injured by an unknown substance believed to have been in the air conditioning system.

      Both terminals was cleared and flights were halted after people complained of eye irritation and coughs.

      Hundreds of passengers waited outside as officials tried to establish the cause.

      The airport reopened about an hour later and flight operations resumed.

      The alarm was raised after reports of a strong smell in the airport and fire crews set up treatment centres for people complaining of irritation.

      An unknown substance was later found in the security check area, Reuters quoted a police spokeswoman as saying.

      Hillary Confidant Sidney Blumenthal Starts ‘Fake News’ Hit Job Against Trump…

      They’re well-produced, but they’re still “clever fakes.”

      Many reporters were shocked this week after racially charged videos surfaced online purporting to be campaign ads created in 1969 for Fred Trump, the late father of President Trump.

      This particular media feeding frenzy was set off by longtime Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal, who mentioned the videos in an essay published this week by the London Review of Books.

      Blumenthal wrote:

      In 1969, Fred Trump plotted to run for mayor of New York … He made two test television commercials. One of them, called ‘Dope Man’, featured a drug-addled black youth wandering the streets. ‘With four more years of John Lindsay,’ the narrator intoned, ‘he will be coming to your neighbourhood soon.’ The ad flashed to the anxious faces of two well-dressed white women. ‘Vote for Fred Trump. He’s for us.’

      The other commercial, ‘Real New Yorkers’, showed scenes of ‘real’ people from across the city, all of them white. Fred Trump, the narrator said, ‘is a real New Yorker too’. In the end he didn’t run, but his campaign themes were bequeathed to his son.

      Soon after Blumenthal’s essay appeared online this week, the videos he mentioned were widely shared on social media by reporters in various newsrooms. The Washington Post’s fact-checker, Glenn Kessler, was one of the first to circulate the videos on Twitter, and his note was shared by several of his colleagues.

      There is only one problem with the supposed Trump ads mentioned by Blumenthal: They’re fakes.

      Fred Trump never ran for mayor in New York City, and he never had ads made up for his supposed campaign. It’s all fake.

      Unlike some other leaders who would otherwise ignore this activity as “part of being a public leader”, Trump will sue on behalf of his father’s legacy and reputation.

      The alarm was raised after reports of a strong smell in the airport and fire crews set up treatment centres for people complaining of irritation.

      I trust you have heard of the Jihadist plan to create a chemical attack scenario specifically to concentrate emergence workers in a closed environment so that a biological attack can take them out, and spread through the hospital system as first responder casualties are evacuated and isolation facilities were overwhelmed?

      The scenario planning has been in play with first responders for years but the preventative counter actions have never been implemented so we are still vulnerable. Even HAZMAT sets are still being held centrally and only issued after needless bureaucratic hurdles have been jumped, allowing the spread of bio-hazard material to continue unabated amongst HAZMAT crews in a real world scenario.

      Most Aussie HAZMAT teams have only two HAZMAT suits per Fire Rescue unit. One for the driver and one for the SO so the rest of the team have to do the ‘funky chicken dance’ as the chemwarfare agent is released. The rest of the 3000 HAZMAT suits for the State of NSW are held at the RAN naval base at Garden Island and it takes actual signatures of two fire superintendents to issue them … if you can find the superintendents.

      The whole thing is high farce. Don’t get me onto the lack of planning and training for the follow up second stage Bio-attack scenarios targeting the First responders and hospital staffs!

      I’ve worked Hazmat before. I do not know the specifics of medical hazmat procedures, but in the commercial world, there is a requirement for facial hair.

      You don’t have to be clean shaven, but you must be shaven in such a manner that your facial hair does not prevent an air tight seal on your respirator.

      Most guys get around this by shaving their beards on their necks up to a point on their chin where the respirator fits, but not shaving their entire beard.

      @ doriangrey:

      It depends on the type of equipment being used. I assume that you’re referring to a facepiece with filters, like what you’d use for painting or working with industrial solvents. Those do require a pretty tight seal, because they’re negative pressure devices. If you don’t have a good seal, air will come around the edges when you inhale, rather than through the filter (path of least resistance, basically).

      With a positive pressure system that uses supplied air, it’s less of an issue, because the air pressure inside the hood is higher than the outside pressure. It keeps contaminants from coming in, since the air is trying to move out.

      Obama PACs Are Busing Protesters To GOP Town Halls

      Political action committees that fundraised for President Barrack Obama during the 2012 presidential election, bused protesters to Republican town hall events nationwide earlier in February, according to a Sunday report from The Washington Post.

      Democrats nationwide continue to search for ways to oppose President Donald Trump after the 2016 election, and they are digging deep into funding from years ago. An unnamed pro-Obama super PAC organized protests at several town halls, going so far as busing protesters outside the member’s districts.

      Since super PACS were legalized in the 2010 Citizens United Supreme Court decision, this marks the first time that money raised to elect one president was used to undermine another. The town hall protests largely opposed the executive order that limited travel from seven nations identified as potential sources of terrorism.

      Former staffers of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton are also pouncing on the opportunity. The Center for American Progress, operated by Clinton advisor Neera Tanden, worked with pro-Obama groups in February to encourage Democrats to oppose Republican lawmakers, including Reps. Jason Chaffetz and Dave Brat, at several town halls.

      Hal Moore, Legendary American Hero Who Saved Most Of His Men In Vietnam, Dies At 94

      Retired Army Lt. Gen. Harold “Hal” Moore, who saved most of his men in the first major battle in the Vietnam War, died Friday night at the age of 94.

      Moore’s friend, Joseph Galloway, confirmed to the Associated Press on Saturday that Moore passed away Friday in his sleep in Alabama.

      “There’s something missing on this earth now. We’ve lost a great warrior, a great soldier, a great human being and my best friend. They don’t make them like him anymore,” Galloway said.

      Moore’s bravery in the Vietnam War during the Battle of Ia Drang became such a legend that actor Mel Gibson ended up portraying him in the movie called “We Were Soldiers.”

      In the banlieus and elsewhere, Islamist pressure makes it certain that sooner or later the West is going to vomit Stalin’s memes out of its body politic. The worst way would be through a reflex development of Western absolutism — Christian chauvinism, nativism and militarism melding into something like Francoite fascism. The self-panicking leftists who think they see that in today’s Republicans are comically wrong (as witnessed by the fact that they aren’t being systematically jailed and executed), but it is quite a plausible future for the demographically-collapsing nations of Europe.

      The U.S., fortunately, is still on a demographic expansion wave and will be till at least 2050. But if the Islamists achieve their dream of nuking “crusader” cities, they’ll make crusaders out of the U.S., too. And this time, a West with a chauvinized America at its head would smite the Saracen with weapons that would destroy entire populations and fuse Mecca into glass. The horror of our victory would echo for a thousand years.
      []
      The process won’t be pretty. But I fear that if the rest of us don’t hound the po-mo Left and its useful idiots out of public life with attack and ridicule and shunning, the hard Right will sooner or later get the power to do it by means that include a lot of killing.

      Obviously they would like to take part in an attack that causes as much fear and destruction as possible. However, this is not a very viable attack for a society in which “Inshallah” is a daily mantra, a society where firefights involve sending as many rounds downrange as possible — aiming is optional, it’s up to allah for the round to find its mark, and where even something as simple as driving is an adventure in danger. This is not to minimize the danger, but my bet is that we are going to see lots of sick or chemically damaged jihadis while they are learning how to carry out such an attack without killing themselves in an even more entertaining rash of jihadi “work accidents”. With a rational and competent administration, intelligence community, and defense department, the threat should be able to be neutralized. Key words being rational and competent.

      WaPo Style section Saturday, Steven Petrow in the Civilities column

      What you need to know is that Civilities is a column for and about gays and their issues. WaPo started it some months ago. The column is about Milo and whether or not to silence him. [all typos mine]

      Yiannopoulos is one hateful fellow who is rightly called out as a misogynist, racists, transphbtic and – oh, yes – a self-loathing homosexual, and the alt-right is a small far-right movement that seeks a white-only state. But none of these things are why I’m afraid of him, and why you should be, too.

      No, the reason to pay attention to the 33-year-old Breitbart editor lies in his ability to provoke otherwise decent citizens to put profits and publicity before civil discourse, and in how his hateful speech incites many to clamp down on the free speech that is a fundamental right in this country.

      NOTE: Matisyahu is a Jewish/American Singer

      Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions activists in Spain will be tried in court for the boycott and harassment of Jewish American singer Matisyahu in the summer of 2015, a Spanish court ruled.

      In August 2015, Matisyahu was scheduled to perform at the annual Rototom Sunsplash reggae festival that takes place in Benicassim, north of Valencia.

      Following pressure from the Valencia and Catalonia BDS movements, which the organizers of the festival said waged a campaign of “pressure, coercion and threats” against them, the organizers asked Matisyahu to publicly denounce Israel and declare his support for a Palestinian state.

      Matisyahu refused, saying that he was the only artist asked to declare his political position in order to sing, and canceled his participation in the festival.

      The affair was picked up by the international media and triggered a wave of criticism against the festival by the press, the Spanish government, and Jewish organizations.

      As a result, Matisyahu was re-invited, and decided to perform as scheduled at the festival, saying that he “always believed in the power of music to unite all people, regardless of religion, politics or geography.

      []
      In the wake of the court ruling, BDS activists launched an online petition called “Defend Human Rights.”

      “We consider this a flagrant violation of our freedom of expression and an attempt to criminalize and suppress our democratic right to defend human rights at home and internationally,” they wrote.

      In their petition, they continued to vilify Matisyahu, saying they have been accused of committing acts of “threat and coercion” and “hate crimes” for what they dubbed their “peaceful campaigning to convince the Rototom Sunsplash Festival to cancel the invitation of an artist based on his track record of defending war crimes and gross violations of human rights, incitement to racial hatred, denial of the existence of the Palestinian people, and documented connections to extremist and violent fundamentalist groups.

      Assuming we survive what might becoming ‘Mike Flynn’ could replace ‘Benedict Arnold’ as a word for ‘traitor’.

      This is a comment at Right Scoop. This is what passes for logic now at the self described “principled conservative”
      Trump hating blogs. Any reference to Mike Flynn as Benedict Arnold is unhinged crap.

      I’ve worked Hazmat before. I do not know the specifics of medical hazmat procedures, but in the commercial world, there is a requirement for facial hair.

      You don’t have to be clean shaven, but you must be shaven in such a manner that your facial hair does not prevent an air tight seal on your respirator.

      Most guys get around this by shaving their beards on their necks up to a point on their chin where the respirator fits, but not shaving their entire beard.

      Yup, we had a similar requirement for the use of pressurised O2 quick don masks on the flight deck. No facial hair that would render the mask tight fit to the face inoperable. The few who sported facial hair had RAF type handlebar moustaches that fitted inside the mask.

      Before he was tapped for a position by Trump, he wrote an article for The Hill that 100% took Erdogan’s line about the ‘coup’ and about Gulen as the source of the trouble, and saying U.S. was harboring a bad guy.

      The spillway failure will be a small catastrophe, but nothing as dire as a dam failure.

      It looks like people are confusing the two.

      Not negating the impact or anything, just sayin’.

      Lake Oroville is 25 square miles, and the spillway will release 30 feet of depth.

      if you watch the live feed
      excess water is already overflowing on the left PAST the emergency spillway

      the ER spillway is just a dirt hillside that much water release will erode the dam

      Rob Reiner: We Cannot Allow Trump’s ‘Cancerous Presidency’ to ‘Spread’

      Sunday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” actor and director Rob Reiner called Donald Trump’s White House “a cancerous presidency that we cannot allow to spread.”

      Reiner said, “What’s interesting here is that we really have a test, and we are being tested as to whether or not our democracy is going to survive. We have somebody who’s mentally unstable, who is a pathological liar. There’s no getting around that, who’s running our country.”

      “And if we can survive this, that will strengthen us in a strange way,” he added. “What you’re seeing all over the country with protests, I’ve been to many of them, is nothing like what I went through in the 60’s when I protested against the Vietnam War, this is everyone. It’s not just people worried about being killed in Vietnam, this is everyone. And so we’re looking at a cancerous presidency that we cannot allow to spread.”

      Very interesting in regard to Flynn. If in fact he did collude with Erdogan than he is definitely suspect. I would tend to agree with Flynn however when it comes to Gulen. Both Erdogan and Gulan are dyed in the wool Islamists. Erdogan is a what you see it what you get Islamist who punches about half way up the Islamist pecking order. Gulan on the other hand is a covert Islamist who uses guile to infiltrate a society but has a totally focused Islamist agenda and is by far therefore the more dangerous of the two. The fact that the US was bought off by Gulan and his honied words says a LOT more about US elites rather than Gulan who has written about he sees Islam entering the West covertly and through associations with Western elites.

      Erdogan is just another would be Islamist head hacker in training, but Gulan is a far more dangerous entity who can do serious damage to Western civilisation.

      Designer Of The Dress Is An Immigrant

      On Sunday night Joy Villa stunned the world when she showed up to the Grammy’s wearing a Make America Great Again dress.

      The Gateway Pundit was contacted by Andre Soriano, the man who designed the dress, for an exclusive interview.

      Andre Soriano immigrated from the Philippines to the United States when he was only 16 years old to pursue a better life and to pursue his dreams of working in the fashion industry. Andre now owns his own highly successful business named Andre Soriano based out of California.

      Andre got his inspiration for the dress from the Women’s March in Washington D.C. when he heard what was his favorite singer, Madonna, talk about how she wanted to “blow up the White House.” Andre was furious by her statements and called Joy Villa and told her they were going to scrap their initial designs for the dress she was going to wear and were going to design a dress to “unite the country,” as Andre said.

      The dress that Joy Villa wore was made from a Trump Flag. As a huge Trump supporter, Joy was naturally very excited about the dress.

      Andre said “We only have one President and that is President Trump. It’s NOT Hillary.”

      He went on to say in reference to making the Pro-Trump dress that “Just like Rosa Parks, we are going to stand up for our rights as Americans,” noting that “the dress was designed in love, it is all about love.”

      Andre voted for President Trump because “I love America and I believe in America.” Even as an immigrant Andre made it very clear several times throughout our conversation that he is a huge supporter of building the wall. He says that people can come here to build a better life but they have to do it legally. Andre is also a huge supporter of the United States Constitution and believes that people that come here need to support it and not try to change it.

      I haven’t seen any further updates on the Grammies, so I’m assuming people are behaving and Katy Perry isn’t winning anything. This will lead to repeated cries of “NORMALIZATION!!!” by the usual suspects tonight and tomorrow.

      Thanks for the info. I’ve known nothing about Gulen – from anyone whose opinion I felt was unbiased – so I had no opinion about him one way or the other. I also have no opinion about whether the upheaval in Turkey was a coup, then a purge, or just an outright purge using a supposed coup as an excuse. Either way, Erdogan is a bad actor who we happen to need at the moment. It is what it is.

      Johnstown Flood National Memorial was created in
      1964 to commemorate the Great Johnstown Flood of
      1889 and preserve the remnants of the South Fork Dam.

      The earthen dam formed a reservoir known as
      Conemaugh Lake on the South Fork of the Little
      Conemaugh River. Originally a reservoir for the
      Pennsylvania Mainline Canal, in the 1800s the South Fork
      Fishing and Hunting Club used the lake as a resort for
      wealthy industrialists. Following heavy rains, the dam
      broke on 31 May 1889, killing 2,209 people in the flood.
      Historical documents presented conflicting information
      regarding the estimated size of the lake and the
      amount of water released in the flood. An 1891 engineering
      report in Transactions, the journal of the American
      Society of Civil Engineers, estimated the reconstructed
      volume of Conemaugh Lake to be 450,000,000 cubic feet
      (12,744,265 cu m). However, an 1889 article in
      Engineering News and American Railway
      Journal estimated the lake to contain
      640,000,000 cubic feet (18,125,177 cu
      m) of water when the dam burst. Unsure
      which estimate was more accurate, the
      park staff requested technical assistance
      from the Northeast Regional Office and
      the Water Resources Division to calculate
      the estimated volume of the historical
      Conemaugh Lake. Kathy Penrod,
      natural resource specialist at the park;
      Alan Ellsworth, Northeast
      Region hydrologist; and James
      Farrell, Northeast Region GIS
      specialist, conducted a study to
      assess the historical estimates of
      the volume of water held by the
      dam when it burst.

      The GIS study produced a lake volume of 449,093,200
      cubic feet (12,716,900 cu m), which supports the estimate
      from the American Society of Civil Engineers’ report as
      the more accurate of the two historical estimates.

      I hate to say it but Orban has been the only one on the continent with any balls. Hungary still has the Nazi thing going in one form or another, but at least it provided a sane haven for this debacle

      The very anti-Trump JK Rowling, who has been pushing the UK to take in more Syrian refugees has resulted in people pledging to buy plane tickets for refugees to live in JK’s mansions.

      Perhaps Rowling thinks she can just magic them away and isolate herself in her “let the crocodiles of Islam eat me last mansion”.

      Both their 1930s-40s NAZI thingie as well as the 1956 Soviet welcome ‘thingie’ as well.

      But they are at least making an effort this time to make amends!

      No, I think this was a solo act. Somebody may have told him it would be a good idea to get rid of Priebus, but nobody who knows the first thing about Washington thinks this would work. There is no way the WH would dump Priebus after this. Chris is getting hung out to dry, and the crows will be picking at his rotting corpse. The reporters who suckered him into this are just shaking their heads now. And they won’t be returning his calls tomorrow.

      My bad. That’s only 1 sq Mile at 30 feet deep.

      You should multiply that 4 billion gallons by the 25 Sq Miles

      A round 100 billion gallons would be pretty closet and good enough for government work!

      QUEENSLAND MILK COMPANY SAYS GO TO HELL.

      HALAL STAND OFF—THE REAL STORY..!

      Queensland’s Maleny Dairies has come out against the halal scammers and declared they will keep prices down and will refuse to be bullied into paying a halal tax on their product. Their stance has had overwhelming support from everyone except the regularly-out-of-touch Courier Mail.

      The move by the Maleny dairy farmers is an important one because the Halal protection racket that supports dubious anti-Australian and Overseas causes can only be stopped if the Government makes it illegal for Companies to comply with threats from halal certifiers.

      The Maleny Dairies’ Facebook page which has 24,000 likes and 3,000 Shares since yesterday indicates the strength in the groundswell of angry objections from regular Aussies to a tax on Australian food from Muslim opportunists who are demanding certification fees for everything from milk to plastic containers.

      A brief look at their site showed thousands of comments supporting the dairy farmers’ stand with a couple of comments suggesting it was silly because, “milk was halal anyway”.

      The Courier Mail stupidly took this to mean these comments were objecting to the dairy farmers’ stand and falsely claimed, “others had accused the farmers of promoting xenophobia” with this ridiculous one-line headline:

      HALAL: “Maleny Dairies’ Facebook post on Halal certification sparks customer backlash”

      Well, the backlash is on all right, but not from the dairies’ customers. They seem in full agreement.

      The Mafia-style halal extortion racket was up in lights in Perth when police recently arrested a Dr Ratab Jneid, chairperson of the WA Halal certification committee, with $8 million worth of methyl amphetamine and $380,000 cash in his possession.

      Jneid was also charged with illegally carrying unlicensed firearms. Five of his associates from the Muslim Halal organisation, run from the same mosque, were also charged with various drug and firearm offences.

      The Courier Mail unfortunately did not carry this story.

      The Islamist mafia Halal ‘protection racket’ was hoping that the Christian rubes wouldn’t know that and just pay up.

      These Muslim bastards are now facing 14 years in the slammer for drugs related charges.

      Good riddance.

      They are criminals and their civilisation world view is criminal as is their satanic religion.
