  • The Lion, the Witch and the Daytona 500

    Okay, cut me some slack. The only other way I can wrangle politics into the title of a column published on the day of the Great American Race would be to mention the National Anthem, and frankly I’m a little “Oh say I can’t see” at this juncture.

    The Good (Daytona 500):
    Today marks the OFFICIAL start of the NASCAR racing season, with the running of Dayton 500 LXI (Pfffft NFL! We can do it too). It’s amazing that unlike every other sport on the planet, stock car racing BEGINS with the premier event, and everyone gets a chance to compete through qualifying runs. If you ain’t in it, it’s on you and you didn’t press the pedal on the right correctly. I hope it’s a good race. I don’t need a repeat of the year Dale Earnhardt died or the year a sinkhole caved in 8 feet of the track or the year that it took 9 hours to complete because of rain. I want sunny skies, safe drivers and a track with structural integrity.

    Thank goodness Fox has the race this year.  For those unfamiliar with the dipso duo broadcasting that is NASCAR, the season is divided in half – the first half, through the road course at Sears Point in late June, is broadcast by Fox; the second half, starting with (usually; they keep mixing races around) Second Daytona through the final race at Homestead, is broadcast by NBC.  However, because the Daytona 500 is the Crown Jewel and by the end of the season everyone has stopped even CARING who wins the championship at Homestead, Fox and NBC alternate the 500 broadcast (in years it goes to NBC, Fox then broadcasts Second Daytona).

    While NBC has improved its coverage over the years, I’ve never been a great fan of it.  It’s almost as if they were embarrassed that they had to get their visas to travel down to redneck country.  I do give them credit for snagging Dale Earnhardt Jr. for the booth – he’s infinitely better than Fox’s prize – Jeff Gordon (who is – sorry, homeboy – AWFUL).  Note to Fox.  Retire Jeff and Dale Waltrip – put in Carl Edwards and Tony Stewart).

    The Lion
    Donald Trump has had a most excellent two weeks.  He knocked it out of the park with the State of the Union, and the GOP got plenty of marvelous footage of Democrats sitting on their hands while he talked about the best economic news in a decade, decried the abortion laws of New York and pressed for better border security and … the WALL.  Overwhelming approval of the speech, especially from independents.  He gave the Democrats an opportunity to sit down and do the right thing.  Instead, a 1500 page spending bill hit the tables, which, like the ACA, no one has read but will vote on it.  And the Republicans in the Senate, who we thought had developed a spine (Grassley, et al.) after Kavanaugh and prior to the election, caved like a deflated football.  Oh, they gave him money for a border wall – 55 feet and so many damned restrictions attached that even chicken wire would probably have breached the terms.

    But the President will not be cornered and on Friday declared a national emergency, which really pissed every Democrat off.  Personally, I think he’s had that money squirreled away all along.  And I think the supplies are in a nice warehouse or arriving by ship.  And now that he’s declared his emergency and all the focus will be on the courts and grandstanding by the Dim-o-crats, no one will be paying any attention to what’s going on down there.  If the courts side with the Dims, fine and good.  Except the Wall will be built anyway since the money was already allocated elsewhere.

    Meanwhile, he’s now got just about every prominent Democrat on record as saying there should be no border restrictions or increased security.  On tape.  On video.  And that’s going to be hard to combat in 2020, especially when Trump will be working working and will reveal, no doubt, “YUGE” sections of Wall that were built and the statistics showing reduction in crime, in crossings, in drugs and human trafficking.  Shake your head about that again, Horizontal Harris…

    The Witch
    Nancy Pelosi?  Of course it is.  Any doubt?  I just wanted to take this opportunity to give present her with her lifetime achievement award.  Walls are immoral.  Walls are wrong.  We care about these poor people more then the safety of American citizens.   Nancy, you aren’t going to be able to harvest enough votes to keep those seats you mysteriously won in California come 2020.

    And you know, I have to say, I am really rather disappointed in my compatriot conservative Game of Thrones fans.  One of the major plotlines in the book series involves the huge ice WALL that keeps out the Night King and his zombie minions in the north and away from the good people in Westoros.  At the end of last season, the evil Night King and his Zombie dragon destroyed the wall and the evil minions were going to be pouring in to destroy the country.  If that isn’t fodder for a good parody video or a T-shirt line I don’t know what is.  Featuring Nancy Pelosi as the king of the Zombies and Chuck Schumer as the Dragon.

    And of course, this is your open thread for Sunday.  After hearing that a Congressman on Wednesday did a comparison of AOC to the Fyre Festival, if that Game of Throne thing pops up, I just want you to remember, you read it here first.  And damn me for not learning how to Photoshop.

      The seemingly endless forces of evil are at work whenever Biden opens his piehole. Those long years of Obozo included ‘lunch with Biden’ while you knew the magic black guy wanted to watch TV. White House Dossier published Zero’s schedule every week. Started late and ended early.

      Biden’s bloviations reveal an Ozero administration that refuses to leave office. The soft Coup against the real President oozes out again.

      yeah, fuck Biden and fuck Munich. Keep your eye on Warsaw.

      It’s amazing, to us at least, that so little comment is being issued in respect of the Warsaw meeting on the Middle East. What comment there has been out of Europe has mainly related to the Munich conference, where America was subjected the usual condescension from France and Germany — capped off by a nauseating speech by Vice President Biden saying America had become an “embarrassment.”

      What a contrast with the parley in Warsaw. Ministers from all sorts of countries came together in what Secretary of State Pompeo called a “testament to our seriousness.” Said he: “Arab and Israeli leaders were in the same room, sharing a meal and exchanging views. They all came together for a single reason, to discuss the real threats to our respective people emanating from the Middle East.”

      Wow. Jussie Smollett was lynched. Something needs to be done to make lynching illegal. It’s about time.

      On Thursday, the U.S. Senate passed a bill that would make lynching a federal crime.

      The bill, which was introduced in June by Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Tim Scott (R-S.C.), had previously passed in the Senate in December, but did not pass in the GOP-majority House before the end of the 115th Congress. The Hill reports that the bill passed Thursday with a voice vote.

      Fiat money allows wars with no real cost to governments, which makes detestable bloodthirsty chickenhawk scum like @MaxBoot & @BillKristol, who’ve never faced costs for their warmongering, the perfect “foreign policy experts”.

      interesting case in the ER today, an Entamoeba histolytica infection of the brain. otherwise healthy 55 year old shows up with some weird neurological manifestations…ok, easy sez the doc, CT head and go with stroke protocols.

      except the manifestations do not match normal stroke symptoms. the ct scan confused the doc…well, after 2 years on a world class stroke unit, and seeing this twice before, i told the doc…its amoebic or bacterial or both. its an infection that you are looking at causing these varied abscesses. there was no way to get those varied abscesses in the brain by hemorrhage or blockage of the vessels (stroke). the vasculature and anatomy do not match the damaged areas.

      he dismissed my read immediately, nicely…until the read came back from radiology stating exactly what i just said almost to the word.

      he then asked, how did yu know that, i simply said…sometimes the nurses know more that you think, and left it at that.

      Pied Piper Brain Tumor Device Receives FDA Breakthrough Status

      The danger of cancer lies in the fact that it aggressively multiplies in the body, but what it if multiplied outside of the body? According to a recent Duke University article, a team of scientists has developed a biomedical tool that tricks tumors into migrating into an external reservoir rather than spreading throughout the brain.

      Appropriately named the “Tumor Monorail,” it acts as a highway through which aggressive tumors can pass outside of the brain where they’re collected and removed. The FDA believes in the lifesaving ability of the device and just granted it a breakthrough designation to expedite its development and review. It has been successfully tested on rats, and now the team must prove it is safe for human trials, which they hope to do by the end of the year.

      Well, yes and no. I’ve tried it, and frankly it’s all in chinese to me. Managed to make 10 dollars disappear. All I was doing was trying to buy Etherium to transfer over to XNK. The whole process went to hell and now I have like 6 bucks left since I had to transfer it between three different cryptocurrency exchanges, and still can’t manage to turn it into xnk. The whole thing is a mess.

      sanctimonious arrogant bureaucrats in suits and ties used their government agencies to seek to overturn the 2016 election, abort a presidency, and subvert the U.S. Constitution. And they did all that and more on the premise that they were our moral superiors and had uniquely divine rights to destroy a presidency that they loathed.

      McCabe said that the thought that they had two cabinet secretaries thst would support invoking the 25th Amendment.
      If I had to speculate I would Gus’s Rex Tillerson & Dan Cotes.

      @ RIX:

      McCabe is lying. The reasons he gave for opening the investigation are just weird (“a strange affinity for Russia”, etc.). He had more grounds for opening an investigation of John Brennan. He’s lying about that, too.

      McCabe is admitting to crimes that would imprison him for life. So, I don’t believe him. No one admits to that unless it’s to deflect from something else.

      What is it? He’s giving red meat to the mob, but where’s the actual corpse?

      I think we finally are seeing actual evidence that ISIS is Syria is defeated and not regrouping/reforming.

      In 5 days I’ve seen 5 different western women from 3 countries begging to be allowed to come home after running away to be ISIS brides.

      They are out of options. Nowhere to go. One woman from the UK has been widowed 3 times. There aren’t any men left to marry.

      We won.

      This is a long, fascinating article about Pierre Omidyar. Who? You may have heard of him as the founder of ebay and, more recently, the financial backer of some of Bill Kristol’s political outlets. It turns out there’s a LOT more. A LOT. None of it good.

      I have one problem with it. The authors. The 1st, Alexander Rubinstein, I don’t know but he’s formerly of RT and his current beat is American prisons. The 2nd I DO know and he’s a pig. Max Blumenthal.

      However, this piece is useful at the very least as background info about the spider’s web this guy is weaving and it even has a diagram.

      So, FWIW….

      How One of America’s Premier Data Monarchs is Funding a Global Information War and Shaping the Media Landscape

      Through his purchase of influence over the daily flow of information to American media consumers, a dizzying array of connections to the national security state, and a media empire that shields him from critical scrutiny, Pierre Omidyar has become one of the world’s most politically sophisticated data monarchs.

      The corrupt rotten systemic screwing over of the rest of Canada has finally risen to the top. They steal, lie, cheat, everyone except Quebec voters. The only thing they produce are collectivists who have pillaged the manufacturing, mining, oil and gas, agricultural industries. Then they give Quebec voters the lion’s share of health, educational, and welfare benefits. I tried to find a new doctor for months. My friends in Quebec get literally overnight services. One friend calls an ambulance (FREE) to take her to the emergency services at her local hospital if it is night or a weekend. Ontario
      gets ‘hallway medicine’ at most city hospitals. You wait for hours on a hallway cot in order to get anybody to look at you because…illegal Muslim immigrants dumped into Ontario.

      I could go on. The POS under Trudeau Ottawa insiders are one degree of separation from Soros. Over 100,000 jobs have been lost in the Alberta energy sector alone in the years of Trudeau’s anti-Canadian diktats. We only have a population of 36 million people.

      The lies of politicians are erupting internationally. The Catholic church is acknowledging the sins of gay Priests everywhere. Even in the Vatican. It’s earthquakes of secret information so strong that they even get out into the mainstream media.

      From Armstrong on who should be able to vote.

      The Supreme Court has agreed to hear the Trump administration’s plan to determine who is and who is not a U.S. citizen during the 2020 Census. The justices agreed Friday to squeeze the controversial case on to their April calendar, because the decennial Census questionnaire is scheduled for printing this summer. A federal district judge in New York struck down the plan last month, ruling that Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross exceeded his authority when he announced the inclusion of the citizenship question. The district judge’s order is very strange and it appears to be really off the charts. He wrote:

      “The evidence at trial, including from the government’s own witness, exposed how adding a citizenship question would wreck the once-in-a-decade count of the nation’s population.”

      “The inevitable result would have been – and the administration’s clear intent was – to strip federal resources and political representation from those needing it most.”

      What is very strange here is that the Constitution does not state that non-citizens have any rights whatsoever to vote. The press has really clouded this issue and made it seem that Trump is some sort of racist because of this issue. However, as it currently stands, even a legal immigrant with a Green Card has the right to vote if over 18, but they can only vote in local and state elections that don’t require you to be a U.S. citizen. Unfortunately, green card holders are already prohibited from voting in federal elections – but they do pay taxes to work here in the USA. I lived in London and even had a British drivers license. I paid taxes there but never had the right to vote.

      The right to vote is RESTRICTED to citizens. Even someone legally present in the USA cannot vote in federal elections. The seats in Congress are allocated according to the census which is to be taken in 2020.

      um……..I’m creeped out

      Researchers studying the brain have stumbled upon a mysterious, previously unknown form of neural communication that has stunned the scientific community.
      Despite major scientific breakthroughs, the brain largely remains a mystery, and the team from Case Western Reserve University have added to it with their latest paper on a self-propagating ‘wireless’ communication they encountered that can jump across different sections of the brain.

      While we’re asleep, the cortex and hippocampus in the brain send out mysterious neural ‘waves’. Scientists have previously observed a low-level, slow periodic activity in the brains of decapitated mice by studying slices of their hippocampuses.

      “We’ve known about these waves for a long time, but no one knows their exact function and no one believed they could spontaneously propagate,”says neural and biomedical engineer Dominique Durand from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio.

      This slow periodic activity can generate electric fields which ‘switch on’ neighboring cells briefly, allowing for chemical-free communication across gaps in the brain. The team managed to simulate communication across completely severed brain tissue while the separate pieces remained in close proximity.

      ‘Jaw-dropping moment’: Scientists discover mysterious new communication mechanism in the brain

      so the brain is doing this wireless thing.

      bullshit. That question used to be part of the census for years. The last time it was used was 1990 I believe. I actually researched this for our work a few years ago and worked with some really good/helpful/nice people at the BLS.

      The calculation they do now to determine the number of illegals isn’t even a SWAG – it’s just a WAG.
