  • Saturday ICC Opening Round Open

    The ICC World Cup is on in England and Wales. Yes, Cricket. Cricket is the progenitor of baseball. This can be seen quite clearly by some of the shared rules, especially if the ball is caught on the fly, the batter is out. I won’t get into the details of the game at this time as that would lead to a few hundred pages of unneeded writing…and yinz wluldn’t read it anyway. 😉

    The ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 is scheduled to be hosted by England and Wales, from 30 May to 14 July 2019.

    The ICC Cricket World Cup (CWC) takes place every four years, featuring 10 teams and is the culmination of a global qualification process that runs over a 5-6 year period.

    The top eight teams in the ICC one-day rankings at the given date (approximately 18 months prior to the CWC) qualify automatically. The final two teams come from the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier which takes place in the year prior to the Cricket World Cup. This event is the culmination of the ICC World Cricket League series and regional qualification events which provide the opportunity for every ICC Member to progress through the qualification process and participate in the CWC.

    All teams play each other in a full round robin format with the top four teams progressing to the semi-finals and the winners contesting the CWC final.

    Here are some highlights of the West Indies destroying Pakistan

    I watched the entire match. The fans for Pakistan were mostly angry bearded men. The fans for the Windies were men and women dancing in the stands and having a great time. The difference was quite telling.

    Cricket, like Rugby, would be completely dominated by Americans if we played these sports. The US won the Gold Medal in the Olympics in 1920 and 1924, and then football gained in popularity. Another blow to cricket in the United States was the formation of the Imperial Cricket Conference in 1909. As the name implied, this was meant to be an organization for cricketing nations in the British Empire. Countries such as Australia and South Africa were able to continue playing internationally, while the United States was left out.

      I was wondering when the US Communists were going to go there. When the health care “debate” took place where the communists argued that health care is a “basic human right”, my question was, what about housing and food? People need that more often than health care.

      This is an interview w/Sidney Powell on the Mueller report. But she also talks about something else. At about the 16 min mark she brings up the OIG’s declination to prosecute the deputy AG for misconduct that we talked about the other day. She says the decision needs to be revisited and she doesn’t know whose decision it was. It may have been the U.S. attorney for the district of Columbia who just HAPPENS to be the same person who let the Awan brothers walk.

      Barr said he (Huber) has been working on ‘clinton’ stuff but then Durham is also working on that.

      As soon as Toensing said her client hadn’t been contacted, let alone interviewed, and others said the same, you knew it was a feint. And as far as anyone can tell, there’s no grand jury either.

      I’d love to be surprised, but it would be one helluva surprise.

      I think this will be coming here soon if the BDS crap isn’t stopped

      ——-
      Pro-Palestine activists have been conducting a ‘campaign of intimidation’ against Jewish shops that sell products from Israel for years

      The Palestine Solidarity Campaign, which is supported by Corbyn, has forced two Jewish businesses to close and activists have threatened others

      Other groups targeted a British Jewish shopkeeper in Ireland and Scotland, forcing him to relocate three times and eventually flee Britain

      A new film, Hounded, has been released by anti-racist campaigners to draw attention to how British Jewish shopkeepers have been living in fear for years

      of course she is,

      and this is how it always works, i’m out of town that day and monday, back tues PM (then off 3 weeks). i am off wed, thurs fri sat of the week before the show

      its a conspiracy. and it almost always works like that. i swear to god these bands psychically have my schedule months in advance and book shows so that i cant go. really, i’m serious. if yinz only knew the crap that goes on if i want to see a concert, its NEVER during a time when i have 5 off in a row, oh no. why should that happen? I WORK LESS DAYS THAN I AM OFF!!!! therefore, it is statistically impossible that this keeps happening OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

      i have to plan concerts months ahead of time because there is never a chance that i am off even though i work less than i am off, unlike a normal 8 hour human who works 5of7.

      you know why this is? i do. it’s payback for me seeing hundreds and hundreds of shows in my past. the karma bomb is hitting now. payback from the great croupier in the sky. i get it. time for me to lose to the house for the rest of my life.

      i have vented.

      harumph.

      mmmhmmmmm

      Yet the elephant in the room remains hiding in plain sight in the corner of the room. Trump’s lack of ability to consistently select qualified and trustworthy staff, especially the senior members of his administration’s cabinet.

      Trump’s Chief of Staff should take him aside and suggest that Trump needs to delegate that responsibility to some totally trustworthy bad ass who can select trustworthy staffers and fire the arses of those who transgress. There are many known offenders who wilfully slow-walk Trump policy decisions and seem to place themselves and their personal opinions above that of the CIC. Sure staffers should openly argue their positions but when the boss says jump their immediat reaction should be … how high?

      🙂

      This is a major Trumpian flaw in his character.

      Thanks mate. Now for some serious opposition in the Pakistanis

      I was also given ticket to a corporate boxon Friday night for myself and Mrs Aussie Infidel. Watched the Auckland Blues vs the South African Bulls. Pissed down as the game kicked off with freezing rain. Then a front went through that decreased the temperature another 6 degrees C due to wind chill. Both sides looked like they just didn’t want to be there. Lots of unforced errors. The Blues actually looked blue from the cold and wet. VERY ordinary game with the Blues up 10 points at half time. LOTS of more unforced errors in the second half with the Blues missing two kicks from right in front of the posts. The score was finally 22 all as the siren sounded with a middling difficult still waiting to be taken by the Blues. It never looked as if it’s go over the bar and flew across the face of the goal. So 22 all draw was the final score and neither side looked as if they really wanted to win.

      That leaves the Blues with an impossible task to move onto the championship stage of the competition, with the Bulls still holding onto their chances by their fingernails.

      The free parking, food and drinks were GREAT!

      oh, great

      DoD bought phony military gear made in China, including counter-night vision clothing that didn’t actually work

      The U.S. military, government agencies and other purchasers bought more than $20 million worth of Chinese-made counterfeit goods designed to look like domestically produced gear from a company that defrauded the government and helped to orchestrate the counterfeiting process between January 2013 and October 2018, Justice Department officials said last week.

      The counterfeit gear included 200 specialized parkas designed to counter night vision goggles that would have been used by U.S. Air Force personnel stationed in Afghanistan.

      But the Multicam APECS Parkas sold to an unnamed U.S. Air Force base supply center didn’t actually do that, which could have put troops’ lives at risk.

      Christopher Balding: China Short on Dollars, Reserves Looking Small

      Devaluing is going to be very difficult… They can’t devalue by any significant amount because of the amount of US dollar debt they have coming due in the near future. If they devalue, then foreign investors aren’t going to be inclined to roll that debt. So they’ve basically backed themselves into a corner… I don’t meet anyone in China who says ‘Oh we’re doing fine, don’t believe the headlines…’”

      see this part? So they’ve basically backed themselves into a corner…

      And they do it every time. This entire Belt/Road thing they thought was going to be their way of getting the world by the shorthairs – they forgot you can’t get blood out of a stone. They built this dam in Ecuador and it was built with the usual Chinese attention to structural integrity, which is to say, zero. Not being an engineer, I don’t know, but it sounds like, once again they were in a hurry and didn’t let the cement dry. It’s under water now and – how do you fix that? China wants to be paid for the dam regardless, Ecuador wants it fixed, they going broke just on the installment payments and it looks like default is the only option. And all the bad blood that comes with it. Some of it was to be paid in oil and we know what the price of oil has done. Ecuador promised (I think) something like 90% of it’s exported oil to China. China now has the reputation of being the devil you don’t make deals with. They aren’t getting paid what their economy needs from all these Belt/Road projects, everybody hates them, and their demographics still suck canal water. If we’re halfway lucky, they’ll make the same mistake the USSR did and break their economy on their military.

      They’re putting out a white paper today I have to find. It’s all about how they’ve never stolen anything in the entire history of the Chinese people and all the tech innovation is due to the purity of the Communist Party and its ideals. Also, Orange Man Bad.

      Announcement from another blog.

      Major outage for Google. Google mail, cloud storage and most other services are out apparently world wide. So much for depending on the cloud to keep your important stuff when it suddenly goes off line. This has been off for over 3 hours.

      “We continue to experience high levels of network congestion in the eastern USA, affecting multiple services in Google Cloud, G Suite and YouTube. Users may see slow performance or intermittent errors. Our engineering teams have completed the first phase of their mitigation work and are currently implementing the second phase, after which we expect to return to normal service.”

      I was supposed to work all day today. I went in at 8, and at 9, our entire network went down. Then I remembered that they were doing scheduled maintenance most of the day.

      When our network is down, we don’t just lose internet access. Our computers don’t work at all. I can’t even write a Word document, because nothing’s stored on my computer.

      And our phones don’t work, either. And of course, we aren’t allowed to have cell phones.

      I spent the morning shredding stuff and cleaning my office, and went home at lunchtime.

      On Rare Earths that aren’t particularly rare at all.

      It’s just the processing that is fairly restricted to china and Australia/ Malaysia. The commercial ‘edge’ that the Chinese have is that they do NOT have any environmental safeguards. Call me shocked !

      🙂

      They also manipulate the price of Rare Earths for political and not market reasons.

      Here is a wrap up…

      There are only 4 people allowed to have cell phones in the facility: The warden, assistant warden, chief of security, and chief of unit management.

      She resigned AFTER Merkel pulled her support as the next Chancellor. And from what I can tell, she really is an idiot, the question is why Merkel supported her in the first place. Which leads to the idea that they’re not working with a deep bench here.

      Here’s an article on our dependence on China for our pharmaceuticals. It’s not a new story but it’s come up again. It’s not just the manufacturing and it’s not just China, I remember reading several years ago that a lot of testing is done off-shore also. I used to need a med that was made by ONE company here in the states and the FDA shut them down because they wanted to change the formula slightly. And it was for the FILLER. Very simple drug made from desiccated pig thyroid. I had to go to essentially a black market/specialty pharm that had it stockpiled, the plan B was Canada. Our pharm industry is a mess.

      Ran across this years ago. You may have already seen it; I found it fascinating as it gives a view of the USSR from a Russian one generation removed from that evil system. Also, the pictures are fascinating.

      Only 530 semi-automatic guns handed over, police say

      New figures show gun owners are holding back on handing in their firearms, because they’re waiting to hear how much the Government will pay for them

      Figures released to Newstalk ZB by the New Zealand Police showed that, as of Sunday night, only 530 guns had been handed in since the ban on semi-automatic guns was finalised in early April.

      There are around 250,000 licenced firearm holders in New Zealand and it’s estimated as many as 300,000 guns could now be illegal.

      It comes as gun owners are waiting on any details around compensation for their guns.

      Police Minister Stuart Nash said in April that regulations, including a price list, would be considered by Cabinet by the end of May.

      Nicole McKee, Secretary of the Council of Licensed Firearm Owners, told Heather du Plessis-Allan that there had not been any communication from Government about prices for the buyback.

      “If they are being serious about their considerations and ensuring that there is fair and reasonable compensation, then firearm owners will wait a bit longer to make sure it is just and it is fair when it is received.”

      She said that people were likely to still be considering if they would claim their firearms as heirlooms or sell them to collectors.

      McKee expected most people would comply with the laws, but she said that there was no trust in the system whatsoever among firearms owners, and that people felt blindsided and blamed.

      “We are effectively being punished for the acts of a foreign terrorist, and we want to make sure that our personal and private property is adequately compensated when it is confiscated.”

      The semi-automatic weapon ban was instituted after 51 people were killed in mass shootings at two mosques in Christchurch.

      Semi-automatic weapons were banned within a week of the attack, with legislation rushed through Parliament and passed within a month. At the time, the Government said they aimed to purchase all firearms back by September 30th, but McKee did not believe that would happen.

      “There has to be costing around how they will implement the system as well,” she said. Factors such as how they would destroy the firearms also had to be considered.

      McKee said firearms owners were looking for compensation for parts as well as the weapons themselves.

      Walter Lübcke: German politician from Angel Merkel’s party found dead in ‘mysterious’ circumstances

      Walter Lübcke, who led the district government in Kassel, reportedly died of a gunshot wound to the head in his own garden. Police say no weapon was found at the scene.

      The police in the state of Hesse, of which Kassel is a constituent district, are understood to be treating the 65-year-old’s death a murder investigation.

      doesn’t sound all THAT mysterious, he took a bullet to the head.

      Someone knew too much about something. Bribery and blackmail are in epidemic mode during these turbulent times. I’m seeing zerohedge stuff everyday that show the tug between various elites as they panic. Last week the head of the “plunge protection team” unexpectedly resigned as did another guy under him. This is the small sneaky market manipulators that buy millions in stocks to keep the stock market going up. Or, at least try and control the volatility so as not to scare the sheeple and keep the social order running.

      Trump and his stunning first lady got off the plane in England accompanied by Steve Mnuchin, the Treasury Secretary. The heads of the Central Banks in the US. and England (a Canuck) will be spending quality time trying to maintain financial stability. NY and London are still the major financial centers, and events are roiling the markets. Remember, Deutsche Bank is teetering, and it owns massive derivatives on its books that could explode European banks.

      People who hold great power are not going to give up a bit of it no matter what they have to do.

It’s the net, but he sure knew a lot about Bill’s sex addiction and gave convincing quotes about how Bill talked and acted when he could say anything he wanted. Yeah, he sounded like a hillbilly hound. Makes sense that they would only have to trust one person through the years. Again, it’s the net. But the NYT is the NYT.

      It was about a year ago. I can’t remember what it was but I quit listening to Levin about a year ago too, he was off on some kind of tangent for a while and was just irritating me.
