    Interesting read on the Saint

    I gave Mrs Coldwarrior gifts on our first Valentine’s together…in typical Russian fashion she says:

    “What did you do wrong?”

    She thinks it’s a stupid day (a ploy to sell cards, flowers, chocolate, and dinners) so we don’t bother.

    Enjoy yinz’s weekend?

      Barr has been a disappointment. Unfortunately, this double-tiered justice system is going to backfire on the elites. They should take a few lessons from history and understand some of the causes of vigilantism.

      @ coldwarrior:

      Joe DeGenova is speculating that the issue is the jury pool in D.C. Only 4% voted for Trump and prosecutors generally don’t bring cases they don’t have a good chance of winning.

      My response to that is, if the process if the punishment, process the fucker.


    8. eaglesoars
      8 | February 14, 2020 4:25 pm

      Well, maybe not the jury pool. Maybe the JUDGE. Who is, quite obviously, anti-Trump

      Reggie Walton, who is handling the FOIA case, had publicly pressed prosecutors to make a final decision about the McCabe prosecution and had set a deadline Friday for them to disclose previously-secret records related to the FOIA litigation.

      The newly-disclosed files showed that in private, Walton was even more stern with prosecutors, warning them that Trump’s complaints about McCabe would taint any decision they made.

      “The public is listening to what’s going on, and I don’t think people like the fact that you got somebody at the top basically trying to dictate whether somebody should be prosecuted … I just think it’s a banana republic when we go down that road,” Walton told government lawyers behind closed doors in September. “I think there are a lot of people on the outside who perceive that there is undo inappropriate pressure being brought to bear … It’s just, it’s very disturbing that we’re in the mess that we’re in in that regard.

      “I just think the integrity of the process is being unduly undermined by inappropriate comments and actions on the part of people at the top of our government,” added Walton, an appointee of President George W. Bush. “I think it’s very unfortunate. And I think as a government and as a society we’re going to pay a price at some point for this.”

      But Trump’s tweets came AFTER McCabe admitted to lying, IIRC

      The Department of Justice has tapped an outside prosecutor to review the case of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, Fox News has learned.

      A senior Justice Department official told Fox News on Friday that Jeff Jensen, the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri, has been assigned to Flynn’s case.

      Jensen will be working hand-in-hand with the lead prosecutor of Flynn case, Brandon Van Grack, according to the official.

      7×70 Schizo Maduro. Cigar cooler is holding a steady 60-65 with minimal humidification right now. Turns out that Rocky Patel Edge boxes are the perfect size for shelves. Will throw in a crystal jar next week for humidification and it should be perfect. It was a great score and will be a perfect cigar cooler. Can’t believe how well it worked out.

      Chinese economic numbers shows the country cratering.

      https://www.zerohedge.com/economics/china-disintegrating-steel-demand-property-sales-traffic-all-approaching-zero

      Remember that because dodgy CCP economic counting techniques combined with a housing sector that sports a 40% BS factor due to corrupt Provincial build data that include building for demolition to meet CCP Five Year Plan requirements. To put it simply that means that the ACTUAL Chinese GDP is factored 6% higher than its real GDP.

      Given that China has had ZERO GDP Growth since 1015 and it’s looking down the barrel of MINUS 7% for 2020’s Q1 with no likelihood of any rebound for Q2 as the numbers continue south in an apparent freefall.

      Don’t expect the West go get away from this recession scot free either. Being joined at the hip to china as many in the West are means that many western economies will feel China’s economic pain. In particular the US , EU, and Australasia, not to mention all of those Africal economies who sold their should to become China’s quarries.

Throw on the jumper cables turn the key. “Well, I guess if you need me to, I’ll fire up.” Lol. Unbelievable. Loved the look on my ex and her wifes face. Filled the oil, changed the tire, put water in the battery and off they go.

      I agree that the US is better set up than most as it is and has been an isolationist economy with economies of scale and markets to survive alone if necessary.The US has always been just an amateur trader who indulged for a sideline hobby. Bad luck for all of those economies who need to trade for their survival.

      Bad luck especially for the Aussies who allowed china to use them as its quarry. Given that the both sides of Australia’s political elites are determined to gut Australia’s energy sector and destroy Australia’s energy dependant industries for the sake of an utopian Green Dream, will only compound the pain in Oz.

      I’m forecasting that China will be officially in a deep recession officially by mid year.

      I am starting to understand why some people go insane, wear tin foil hats, (In fact you cannot get tin foil any more, it is now aluminium foil and probably does not protect as well as tin used to, but I digress ) and refuse to be near any electronics and live in the remote parts of Wyoming.

      Several weeks ago I met a friend for lunch. After lunch we sat in friend’s car for a while and discussed electrical kitchen appliances. I think it was either crock pots or air fryers. Anyway the actual product is irrelivent but the store my friend advised me to look at was… and as my friend spoke the name of the store my mind interpreted it as “Coles”

      Later that evening I started seeing adverts on web pages for “Khol’s” Hey what a coincidence!!!! And that is how Coles is really spelt.

      Today, lunch again and we both sat in friends car after and talked about coronavirus and the cruise ship that had 3000 on board for weeks. Talked about crieses in general and both agreed that it was not something either of us would do, or like. Except maybe Alaska.

      I also said Mediterranean may be good as you just get on ship, it sails four hours and you get off and visit a place, get back on, eat sleep and next day another new place to visit. But again I am rambling….

      Got back to my apartment, got on the Internet and I bet you will never guess what adverts are appearing.

      Mediterranean cruise $2,999

      Next time I meet my friend for lunch I am going to use sign language.

      And like the Black Death in Europe it freed up the market and allowed people to market their skills which eventually sparked the Renaissance.
      One hopes that this for all the coming pain will free the Chinese people to reach their full potential.

      @ Aussie Infidel:

      Here’s another article on the global impact

      https://www.guggenheiminvestments.com/perspectives/global-cio-outlook/coronavirus-impact-on-the-global-economy

      Yet as a major economic problem looms on the horizon, the cognitive disconnect between current asset prices and reality feels like the market equivalent of “peace for our time.” The average BBB bond yields just 2.9 percent. A recent 10-year BB-rated healthcare bond came to market at 3.5 percent and subsequently was increased in size from $1 billion to $1.7 billion due to excess demand.

      For those investors who perceive the disconnect between risk assets which are priced for a rosy outcome and the reality of the looming risks to growth and earnings, any attempt to reduce risk leads to underperformance. It is a mind-numbing exercise for investors who see the cognitive dissonance

      That’s exactly what happened. 1/3 to 1/2 half of Europe died. Housing became cheap and plentiful and the standard of living rose. Labour was less accessible so the price went up and people had more disposable income and ate better food. Education began and especially tertiary education causing an increase in skills and enterprise. Crafts arose to protect new gained freedom of work conditions, but also created the idea of unions.

      It’s an ill wind that blows nobody any good!

      It certainly is. The ‘official GDP growth’ hovered around 6% since 2015, so when you factor in the 6% raised base due to Chinese accounting chicanery and fraud. That makes it effectively zero GDP growth for the past 5 years, all financed by printing presses and a fiat currency that he’s been artificially propped up.

      Now that we are in negative actual GDP Growth territory that whole’ fiscal house of cards’ is being placed under impossible strain!

      This is not your run-of-the-mill antibiotic scenario.

      Cytokine ‘storms’ are not as rare as you might think, it’s suspected in my auto-immune hepatitis, post-e.coli infection and we think we may be looking at onset of one in Mia, post-bacterial infection. They can be a bitch to manage.

      Ahhh SHIT !

      The virus can hide for up to 24 days!

      Bugger

      Daughter and associated Chinese students who have been quarantined just got out of 14 day quarantine last Tuesday. That means that they can still be asymptomatically infectious. Shit! That puts them as potentially infectious up until Feb 20 ! And there are about 50 Chinese students living in various school dormitories at St Cuth’s as we speak!

      What are the odds?

      The very first act that every individual performs upon enlisting in the Armed Forces of the United States is promise to uphold and defend The Constitution.

      For the Army the oath of enlistment was this:

      I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.” (Title 10, US Code; Act of 5 May 1960 replacing the wording first adopted in 1789, with amendment effective 5 October 1962).

      All of us who served in the Armed Forces made this promise to the nation.

      And every one of us who has served has broken that promise. Every one of us has allowed traitors and murderers to rule over us and every one of us has obeyed every order the traitors and murderers have issued.

      We deserve to punished for this. We really do deserve to be punished for this.

      All of us who served the United States in the armed forces took an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution. The time has come to keep that promise.

      Tom Steyer was just on with Martha Radditz. This guy is profoundly weird and babbles gibberish.
      He tried to sell that the economy is poor and even Martha Radditz pushed back. Steyer got all huffy and accused her of defending Trump. Say what? This woman cried on air when a Trump was elected.
      Out of curiosity I googled Steyers Wiki page. He comes from private equity just as I figured.
      Trump created wealth and thousands of jobs. Steyer however moved money around destroying lives and jobs while creating no new wealth. Vulture capitalism ala Pierre Delecto.

      Today a new newspaper was delivered. World Journal, which appears to be a Chinese newspaper, as I can’t read a word of it. I can see the terms CDC and WHO and World Journal. That’s about it.

      We have a lot of neighbors from other countries, but not one from China. Korea,yes, no China, no Japan. And no one’s name, i.e., customer id/address, is printed anywhere on a label, etc.

      What I want to know is WHO was on the Telecommunications Advisory Group overseeing the implementation of 5G networks for the UK, and who advised PM Boris Johnson to allow Chinese 5G anywhere neat the UK’s communications system.

      Surely some ‘cub reporter’ from the British Telegraph group can easily dig up the names of these so called ‘experts’. By even suggesting that peripheral systems can be isolated from the Core Systems in a 5G network is delusional, as by its very nature processing is spread to peripheral systems to increase speed.

      There is a need to expose these ‘advisers’ to the cold light of public investigation before any recommendation can be accepted. Vested interests these days are the ‘coin of the realm’ and corruption run deep and crosses international boundaries.

      We all need to know who is who in these advisory groups that suggest such outlandish and dangerous paths to follow. Surely some news hound with his salt can name and expose these so called ‘experts’. We need to know their histories before we can weigh the value of their suggestions.

      And have you noticed that the Pentagon has objected to Trump cutting off Huawei? Their objection supposedly is our telecom suppliers would be cut off form subsidiary suppliers or something, but if you want my opinion – and of course you do – follow the money
