      I got into the office Monday, went straight for the coffee. A young coworker came in. I said, “You know what’s a drag? Going to sleep Friday night and waking up Monday morning.”
      He asked, “So what did you do this weekend?”
      I said, “I slept.”

      J-Box walks into a Starbucks, orders a pitcher of distilled espresso. The barrista says, “Wow, dude. That’s a lot of caffeine. Why do you want so much?”

      J-Box says, “I gotta get wired.”

      That’s an electrician joke.

      morning y’all

      – June 3, 2019. Our Monday morning update.
      – This is Foreman Mike with WeBuildTheWall, Fisher Industries, Jobe Concrete and our favorite suppliers.
      – Just want to let you know that the gate is being installed to the Rio Grande Dam, which will completely seal off this critical half a mile.
      – Over the course of the last 10 days we’ve had zero crossings due to the wall being placed by Fisher Industries and Jobe Concrete
      – Additionally, we’ve already got 1,100 feet of concrete poured in the last 24 hours coming up the mountain. We expect to have the speedway for the DHS and Homeland Security complete up to the top of the wall by Wednesday, Thursday at the latest.
      – We’ve got to talk about a couple of things. It’s been brought to our attention that we have some fake media producing fake stories that DHS, Homeland Security, etc. do not believe in this wall; that it’s, according to the Governor of New Mexico, nonsense. This is entirely untrue.
      – We have had at least a minimum of 100 agents, section chiefs, federal people, the DC gang, Water Commission; everybody is out here in full support of this effort.
      – We have cut off, as I’ve said again, 19 major footpaths in one half a mile. So don’t listen to the fake news. This is a reality. It is happening. We’re stopping the cartels. We’re stopping the human trafficking right here, right now.

      INSANE: Cartel Gunmen Reportedly Brandish Rifles, Intimidate Border Wall Construction Crew

      ShareTweetFlip
      Brian Kolfage, the veteran who started the viral We Build The Wall organization, revealed that cartel gunmen approached border wall construction crews brandishing rifles last night, seeking to intimidate them and prevent them from continuing the border wall construction.

      Kolfage, the triple-amputee Air Force veteran and Purple Heart recipient who started the viral We Build The Wall campaign on GoFundMe, posted a tweet earlier today revealing that “15 armed cartel members with rifles dressed in camo approached our border wall last night intimidating construction crews”, and suggested his organization’s security was able to thwart the intimidation attempt.

      Facebook shareholder revolt gets bloody: Powerless investors vote overwhelmingly to oust Mark Zuckerberg as chairman

      Some 68% of ordinary investors, those who are not part of management or the board, want to oust Zuckerberg as chairman and bring in an independent figure to chair Facebook’s board. This was a significant increase on the 51% who voted in favor of an almost identical proposal last year.

      This is going to be interesting. Roger Stone got what are called The Crowdstrike Reports as part of the discovery process for his defense. However, they;re so heavily redacted, he can’t use them, so he’s asked the court for unredacted versions.

      https://www.usatoday.com/documents/5996642-Compel/

      The request says the docs could show the Russians didn’t really hack anything, which, at least in some cases, I’ve suspected for a long time, and I think Crowdstrike was part of the fraud

      Stone is a grifter and a fraud in his own right, so I’m hoping he’s not as naive as the Page/Papadopulous duo have been.


    11. 11 | June 4, 2019 10:45 am

      @ eaglesoars:

      Totally agree. Assange has said from jump street that he did NOT receive the emails from Russia and the NSA forensics show that the data transfer rate was too fast for a hack but perfect for direct data transfer. There has always been speculation that it was Seth Rich, who was disgusted to learn about the duplicity in sabatoging the Sanders’ campaign.

      And I think the DNC KNEW it was a inside job – else why not turn the servers over to the FBI? We have only CrowdStrike’s word that this was a Russian job. And aren’t they affiliated with some high DNC mucky mucks to begin with?

      I’m surprised Jack Dorsey hasn’t also been ousted from Twitter. I seem to recall he was installed as Chairman after it was revealed that the Twitter Gulag for conservatives was indeed a real thing and the stock started teetering.

      It wasn’t Seth. If it had been Seth, Crowdstrike would have given the evidence. But it wasn’t and manufacturing the evidence would have exposed fraud (I’ve thought this thru, trust me).

      If it wasn’t Crowdstrike as an org, it was people in the same circle. Shawn Henry (I think his last name is Henry), who heads up Crowdstrike, was FBI and appointed head of Cybersecurity by – wait for it – Mueller.

      I have YET to see any evidence of Russian ‘interference’ other than post-election FB posts.

      As for Binney – I’m not sure his test was valid. It probably IS, but I don’t understand how he did the benchmark of transmission rate. What happens in a lab almost never happens over a live network.

      Dorsey and Zuck are, at the least, monstrous egoists who are convinced their superior intellect will be more than sufficient to keep the screeching peasants at bay. They will be convinced of that right up to the nanosecond the pitchforks gut them.

      @ eaglesoars:

      I heard him explain it in an interview. My understanding is this: when you transfer data it leaves a footprint. They were checking the transmisison timestamp from one file to the next and calculated based on file size and realized the data rate transfer was rather fast – at a speed of direct disk transfer.

      Looks like Google and Amazon are about to be hit up by Justice for anti-trust. Google I might be able to understand – they did the same thing with Microsoft back in the 90’s and early 2000’s. But AMAZON? I can’t figure that one out at all. Amazon isn’t gobbling up other online shopping outlets as far as I know.

      Good question. I should think it HAD to be Assange. Of course, the $64,000 question is how did Assange come by them? He’s always broadly hinted it was an inside job.

      The other $64,000 question that has never been answered sufficiently (if at all) is WHY the Democrats refused to turn the server over to the official government investigating agency, the FBI, and instead funded a private investigation. Manipulation of the results, maybe?

      Crowdstrike is an appendage of the FBI without the oversight responsibilities to Congress.

      Remember, they told Donna Brazille they had to leave everything turned on overnite otherwise data would be lost – from RAM. Because Brazille doesn’t know anything about computers, she didn’t understand what she was being told and that it was a bullshit reason.

      They left that system wide open just like Hillary left hers. Isn’t that interesting.

      oh ffs. For those of you who didn’t catch Chernobyl, you missed a fantastic history on unbelievable heroism and sacrifice. Those people most certainly saved Europe, they may have saved the world.

      But the Russian nomenkultura don’t see it that way. They’re pissed. A bunch of Americans honor the heroes Russia can’t admit exist because global nuclear disasters don’t happen in the utopia of Soviet Man. In order to right the world, the Russians are going to tell the story of Chernobyl from their side. You’re gonna love it.

      the CIA sent an agent to the Chernobyl zone to carry out acts of sabotage. … “One theory holds that Americans had infiltrated the Chernobyl nuclear power plant and many historians do not deny that, on the day of the explosion, an agent of the enemy’s intelligence services was present at the station.”

      From the comments, a POV that hubby concurs with. That what is now AI was called ‘expert systems’ in the 70’s.

      Think for a second about what the cloud computing model really is – it’s just the old IBM mainframe model from the 1970s. For an amusing historical interlude on this issue, and on how AWS is attempting to revive this model, allow me to share the 1984 Apple Macintosh ad with you:
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=axSnW-ygU5g

      So, what was the IBM model? You don’t get a computer, you get a terminal. From your terminal you log into the IBM mainframe, a shared user environment, just like the AWS virtualization system. The cloud server farm is analogous to a mainframe, isn’t it?

      And, of course, the NSA and CIA and FBI will have backdoors into the AWS cloud mainframe, won’t they? You also have to assume that the AWS virtualization software is impervious to cross-channel hacking. . . I mean, you have to live on the same RAM-CPU van Neumann system, and all you have is AWS ‘guarantees’ that nobody has figured out how to breach those barriers. . . sure, sure, we have total confidence in that, don’t we?

      no.

      I don’t even know where to start, but when you say ‘mainframe’ you are talking about an operating system architecture that is as far from distributed processing as you can get.

      The first ‘distributed’ technology was in software, in an IBM package called Customer Information Control System, aka CICS, that was developed by IBM people in either Cambridge or Oxford, I forget. And THAT required development of software to manage the disk hardware. All of this interfaced with mainframe OS that eventually had to go downstream. ‘Remote terminals’ were, originally, typewriters that needed their own addresses.

      This was the dark ages. I wrote software for those environments and made a TON of money because CICS developers were pearls. The only language you could write code for the screen display was assembler and you can fuck stuff up in assembler faster than you can say ‘load address’. Which is always the 1st instruction.

      “Judgment in Moscow” by a Soviet dissenter has 5 reviews on Amazon.
      So, who is ever going to read it and develop a counter narrative to the anti Trump forces? Nobody.

      “At last, a book in the West that describes the Red Empire as seen by we who had to live under it.”
      —Mart Laar, former Prime Minister of Estonia and recipient of the Truman-Reagan Medal of Freedom

      From an editorial review:

      “Judgment in Moscow” is an essential warning of the dangers of collaborating with authoritarian regimes. It’s also a timeless reminder that evil doesn’t die, but must be battled back constantly. The crimes of the Soviet Union were enabled by appeasement and rationalization by politicians in the free world who ignored that the lesser evil is still evil. Today we are witnessing a similar plunge into the depths of moral equivalence and convenient deals with dictatorships. As Bukovsky writes in Judgment in Moscow, using a word much in vogue today, “any sane person knows full well when he has entered into collusion with evil.”

      Cloud connected devices, say your microwave (or nuclear power station) is connected to the cloud. You put a frozen pizza in your cloud connected microwave and say to the microwave “please cook my pizza”

      Your microwave accesses the cloud and the vast array of processing power tells your microwave that your Red Barron medium crust supreme needs 5 mins on full power, then 2 minutes rest time and then another 3 minutes full power.

      Great, your microwave and the cloud cooked your pizza to perfection.

      Now try cooking a pizza when the Internet is down. No cloud.

      [Francis Ford] Coppola told the chairman of Goskino of the USSR that he had a discussion with the President of the United States, J. Carter, who expressed an interest in the making of a joint Soviet-American film on disarmament. According to F. Coppola, the president linked this project with the forthcoming summit meeting in Vienna and the signature and ratification of the second treaty on the limitation of strategic arms (SALT II). The American side feels that such a film would promote the growth of mutual trust between the Soviet and the American peoples, the formation of a positive international appraisal of this treaty, and serve the further development of Soviet-American cultural cooperation.

      😆

      One wonders if that was before or after the Russkies invaded Afghaistan. Coppola acting as a back channel between the U.S. and USSR is an amusing image but I suspect Coppola wrote the script, not Carter and CERTAINLY not Brezhinsky.

      I’m about to lose my mind with computers right now. My computer runs perfectly for just about anything but if I try to run any game (except 1) the screen goes black and the fans spin up loudly after anywhere between 5 minutes to an hour. I can’t figure out what is happening and I consider myself skilled. The troubleshooting is going to cost me a fortune. First I have to replace the power supply, then go with a liquid cooling system, and then if those don’t work I have to try a new video card. If that doesn’t fix it then it can only be the processor or motherboard.

      Ahh, pulling my hair out. Unfortunately, in my town we don’t have any experts to find these problems and repair them, just people that charge you a fortune not to find the problem.

      I miss the days I could just put a post card in the system and read the output to find the issue.

      Completed on May 30th, SpaceX’s latest Falcon 9 booster recovery smashed several internal speed records, unofficially cataloged over the years by watchful fans.

      In short, as the company’s experienced recovery technicians continue to gain experience and grow familiar with Falcon 9 Block 5, the length of booster recoveries have consistently decreased in the 12 months since Block 5’s launch debut. Already, the efficiency of recovery processing has gotten to the point that – once SpaceX optimizes Block 5’s design for refurbishment-free reuse – there should be no logistical reason the company can’t fly the same booster twice in ~24-48 hours.

      : ‘The sun has been without spots for 16 consecutive days–a sign that Solar Minimum is underway.

      Sadly, this is very unlikely to be true because the sun follows an 11-year cycle, meaning it will simply spring back to life in the coming years.

      When the sun leaps back from its minimum after roughly 11 years, we’re likely to see more and more ferocious explosions on the sun.

      yes he has.

      spending as a % of gdp is down. is it down enough? nope. congress could help out hf they were so inclined.

      the only numbers for govt spending are % of gdp adjusted for base year dollars.

      debt/spending denominated in anything else is bullshit meant to mislead you.

      Why is the quack still licensed?

      Democrats are planning to host a Capitol Hill event featuring psychiatrists who will warn that President Trump is unfit for office based on his mental health.

      The event will be led by Dr. Bandy Lee, a Yale School of Medicine psychiatrist and editor of The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump, a book that argues psychiatrists have a responsibility to warn the public when a president is dangerous. ..“The president’s condition has been visibly deteriorating to the point where there’s a lot of talk right now about his mental state beyond mental health professionals,” Lee said. “It no longer takes a mental health professional to recognize the seriousness of the current presidency.”…In April, Lee and other psychiatrists wrote a report using the former special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian election interference to make an assessment about the president’s mental health. They at first refrained from issuing a conclusion and gave Trump three weeks to undergo an evaluation. After they didn’t hear back, they released a conclusion that Trump “lacks mental basic mental capacity for duties of office” and recommended his access to nuclear weapons and war powers be curtailed.

      I have no idea how you use the Mueller report to evaluate anyone’s mental health except Brennan’s and the fact that these people thought it was ok to give POTUS an ultimatum tells me the mental illness lies elsewhere

      Here’s the report

      Now where have I heard that before>

      Oh Yes….

      In the last decade of the Soviet Union the corrupted psychiatric services were weaponised to incarcerate anyone who they felt were a danger to their communist dream… that was rapidly going pear shaped under the weight of reality.

      This is just another activist progressive specialist determined to use his calling to bring about a political result that would be a soft coup.

      Sorry ‘doc’. We are on to you and your nefarious plans. Eat it arsehole!

      JUST IN: The Trump administration is canceling English classes, recreational activities, including soccer, and legal aid for unaccompanied migrant children who are staying in federally-contracted migrant shelters.

      the legal aid thing might raise a constitutional issue but I’m not sure due process = taxpayer funded
