    WHAT is a 7 day free trial on Amazon? EPIX? How does that even work?

    On the Amazon Prime Video homepage, either on your computer or on your TV, you should see a row of “channels.” It should have a link to add more channels. Most of them have a 7 day free trial. If you don’t cancel, they bill you accordingly. I think Epix is $5.99 a month.

    It’s 34C at the MCG in Melbourne and the Yarpies are melting into the ground. They were skittled in their first innings for something ridiculously low score. It’s not looking flash for the Hitler Youth! 🙂

    The new Blackcaps (Kiwi) spinner looked lethal in Karachi but the pitch dried out and flattened out as well and stopped taking spin, and the Pakistanis are about 340 for 5 and looking dangerous.


    We finally had our family Christmas with ham off the bone Turkey that Mrs. AI began cooking at zero dark 30 this morning. Beautiful sunny day here with 26C and the beach with swimmers and boaters aplenty out the front. Dessert was by #1 son … dark chocolate log with freshly whipped cream and champers.

    Good day

    BREAKING: Supreme Court Keeps Immigration Rule Title 42 in Place Indefinitely

    Not that it will make any difference, as this admin has been ignoring it anyway

  36. eaglesoars
    38 | December 27, 2022 7:08 pm

    @ eaglesoars:

    That headline is misleading.

    The Supreme Court said on Tuesday that a pandemic-era health measure that restricted illegal migration at the southwestern border would remain in place for the time being, delaying the potential for a huge increase in illegal crossings at the southern border.

    In an unsigned order, the justices refused to throw out Title 42, which allows Illegals who might otherwise qualify for asylum to be swiftly expelled at the border.

    The court said that it would hear arguments in the case in February and that the stay would remain in place until it issued its ruling. The justices said they would only address the question of whether the 19 mainly Republican-led states that had sought the stay could pursue their challenge to the measure.

    Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, Neil M. Gorsuch and Ketanji Brown Jackson dissented.

    Great Reset: German Govt Wants to Remote Control Home Heat, Electric Car Charge

    Germany’s Federal Network Agency, a government watchdog responsible for the regulation of electricity and gas in the country, has announced a new plan that will allow power grid operators to remotely limit the use of heat pumps and electric car chargers in Germany next winter without the user’s permission.

    With the plans set to be put in place by January 2024, the measure has been described as a way of ensuring energy grid operators have the ability to artificially curb electricity demand should consumption outstrip supply.

    According to a report on the new scheme penned by Die Welt, the plan has been drawn up in response to the German energy grid being put under more and more strain by an increasing number of electric car chargers and people using more ‘environmentally friendly’ but electricity-intense heat pumps in their homes.

    Voices From The Line: Larry Lonero
    What happened to Southwest Airlines?
    I’ve been a pilot for Southwest Airlines for over 35 years. I’ve given my heart and soul to Southwest Airlines during those years. And quite honestly Southwest Airlines has given its heart and soul to me and my family.
    Many of you have asked what caused this epic meltdown. Unfortunately, the frontline employees have been watching this meltdown coming like a slow motion train wreck for sometime. And we’ve been begging our leadership to make much needed changes in order to avoid it. What happened yesterday started two decades ago.
    Herb Kelleher was the brilliant CEO of SWA until 2004. He was a very operationally oriented leader. Herb spent lots of time on the front line. He always had his pulse on the day to day operation and the people who ran it. That philosophy flowed down through the ranks of leadership to the front line managers. We were a tight operation from top to bottom. We had tools, leadership and employee buy in. Everything that was needed to run a first class operation. When Herb retired in 2004 Gary Kelly became the new CEO.
    Gary was an accountant by education and his style leading Southwest Airlines became more focused on finances and less on operations. He did not spend much time on the front lines. He didn’t engage front line employees much. When the CEO doesn’t get out in the trenches the neither do the lower levels of leadership.
    Gary named another accountant to be Chief Operating Officer (the person responsible for day to day operations). The new COO had little or no operational background. This trickled down through the lower levels of leadership, as well.
    They all disengaged the operation, disengaged the employees and focused more on Return on Investment, stock buybacks and Wall Street. This approach worked for Gary’s first 8 years because we were still riding the strong wave that Herb had built.
    But as time went on the operation began to deteriorate. There was little investment in upgrading technology (after all, how do you measure the return on investing in infrastructure?) or the tools we needed to operate efficiently and consistently. As the frontline employees began to see the deterioration in our operation we began to warn our leadership. We educated them, we informed them and we made suggestions to them. But to no avail. The focus was on finances not operations. As we saw more and more deterioration in our operation our asks turned to pleas. Our pleas turned to dire warnings. But they went unheeded. After all, the stock price was up so what could be wrong?
    We were a motivated, willing and proud employee group wanting to serve our customers and uphold the tradition of our beloved airline, the airline we built and the airline that the traveling public grew to cheer for and luv. But we were watching in frustration and disbelief as our once amazing airline was becoming a house of cards.
    A half dozen small scale meltdowns occurred during the mid to late 2010’s. With each mini meltdown Leadership continued to ignore the pleas and warnings of the employees in the trenches. We were still operating with 1990’s technology. We didn’t have the tools we needed on the line to operate the sophisticated and large airline we had become. We could see that the wheels were about ready to fall off the bus. But no one in leadership would heed our pleas.
    When COVID happened SWA scaled back considerably (as did all of the airlines) for about two years. This helped conceal the serious problems in technology, infrastructure and staffing that were occurring and being ignored. But as we ramped back up the lack of attention to the operation was waiting to show its ugly head.
    Gary Kelly retired as CEO in early 2022. Bob Jordan was named CEO. He was a more operationally oriented leader. He replaced our Chief Operating Officer with a very smart man and they announced their priority would be to upgrade our airline’s technology and provide the frontline employees the operational tools we needed to care for our customers and employees. Finally, someone acknowledged the elephant in the room.
    But two decades of neglect takes several years to overcome. And, unfortunately to our horror, our house of cards came tumbling down this week as a routine winter storm broke our 1990’s operating system.
    The frontline employees were ready and on station. We were properly staffed. We were at the airports. Hell, we were ON the airplanes. But our antiquated software systems failed coupled with a decades old system of having to manage 20,000 frontline employees by phone calls. No automation had been developed to run this sophisticated machine.
    We had a routine winter storm across the Midwest last Thursday. A larger than normal number flights were cancelled as a result. But what should have been one minor inconvenient day of travel turned into this nightmare. After all, American, United, Delta and the other airlines operated with only minor flight disruptions.
    The two decades of neglect by SWA leadership caused the airline to lose track of all its crews. ALL of us. We were there. With our customers. At the jet. Ready to go. But there was no way to assign us. To confirm us. To release us to fly the flight. And we watched as our customers got stranded without their luggage missing their Christmas holiday.
    I believe that our new CEO Bob Jordan inherited a MESS. This meltdown was not his failure but the failure of those before him. I believe he has the right priorities. But it will take time to right this ship. A few years at a minimum. Old leaders need to be replaced. Operationally oriented managers need to be brought in. I hope and pray Bob can execute on his promises to fix our once proud airline. Time will tell.
    It’s been a punch in the gut for us frontline employees. We care for the traveling public. We have spent our entire careers serving you. Safely. Efficiently. With luv and pride. We are horrified. We are sorry. We are sorry for the chaos, inconvenience and frustration our airline caused you. We are angry. We are embarrassed. We are sad. Like you, the traveling public, we have been let down by our own leaders.
    Herb once said the the biggest threat to Southwest Airlines will come from within. Not from other airlines. What a visionary he was. I miss Herb now more than ever.

    Regulator wined and dined by SBF and FTX out at the SEC.

    It comes after the Washington Examiner revealed Berkovitz cozy relationship with SBF and FTX thanks to emails obtained by the watchdog Protect the Public’s Trust. “If ever there were a scene to conjure up a vision of a D.C. rigged toward corrupt insiders at the expense of the little guy, it would be difficult to top this one,” Michael Chamberlain, director of Protect the Public’s Trust, told the Washington Examiner. “Not long before its collapse and a raft of fraud charges, SBF and his gang were wooing one of their would-be regulators no doubt to try to manipulate the regulations to their advantage.”

    Bankman-Fried, FTX General Counsel Ryne Miller, and then-FTX President Brett Harrison met with Berkovitz at a luxury restaurant in Oct. 2021 amid discussions by the SEC and CFTC to determine the best methods for regulating cryptocurrency. While it is unknown what was discussed, the presence of Berkovitz at the dinner illustrates Bankman-Fried’s efforts to schmooze lawmakers and regulators in D.C. and promote his view of crypto regulation.

    SBF even presented FTX as the “natural choice” to be “umpires” of the crypto industry to Berkowitz in emails.

    They’re doing it again. I think the rationale is if they have to suffer, they’ll make sure the rest of the world suffers too.

    China finally ended its idiotic zero-COVID policy, which was an absolute disaster. People were sealed into their own homes, sometimes even welded in. As China lies about pretty much everything it’s almost impossible to know how many died as a consequence. It estimates that 250 million are now infected with COVID since the end of its zero-COVID restrictions. The country is now going through what everyone else endured two years ago, except that now they are again willing to share.

    Pay attention to this. Ed Dowd is a very serious guy who was an analyst with Blackrock.

    Warning From Ed Dowd: 7,500 Americans Are Killed or Disabled EACH DAY as Jabs Take Heavy Toll

    Ed Dowd, author of Cause Unknown (available at and other book resellers) joined me for an interview last night to share updated — and slightly horrifying — numbers about post-vaccine excess fatalities and excess disability claims.

    The short version of that conversation is that each day in America, there are about 2,500 excess deaths and 5,000 excess disability victims due to covid-19 vaccines. This means, on average, about 7,500 Americans are removed from the potential labor pool each day. Granted, not all 7,500 are currently working, but most of them theoretically could contribute to the work force if they chose to.

    Our conversation goes way beyond the mere numbers, however. We look at the macroeconomic implications of this daily removal of 7,500 people from the potential labor pool and what it means for America’s economy and military security, among other things. To hear the full conversation, listen to the interview below.

    The decivilization of the USA
    One of the more startling realizations in all this is that the United States of America is suffering the early stages of a “decivilization” event, not merely a temporary bump in the road. That term refers to the dismantling of the critical, complex pillars of a modern advanced civilization, rendering it unable to function.

    This is pretty much how the bronze age became the iron age. There was a massive decivilization process in the east at about 1177 B.C (or maybe 1189 B.C., Egyptologists keep changing the date).

    World Economic Forum Cancels Twitter, Directs Followers To Use Chinese Social Media Instead

    Twitter is noticeably absent from the entities listed on the WEF’s “How to follow Davos 2023” social media pamphlet, and that appears to be no accident.

    The Dossier reports: To stay up to speed with all that is happening within the invite-only doors of the ruling class confab, the WEF recommends following along through a handful of social media sites. They include the U.S.-based narrative-compliant Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, and YouTube, along with the Chinese social media apps TikTok WeChat, and Weibo. Twitter, which has freed itself from the grasp of the WEF-endorsed censorship-compliant social apps, is no longer included.

    Through its founder Klaus Schwab and partner organizations, the WEF has a very cozy relationship with the Chinese government. Davos recently revealed that their China office now has 40 full time staffers. Moreover, every year in Beijing, the WEF hosts its “Annual Meeting of the New Champions,” which facilitates partnerships between international businesses and the Chinese Community Party. In 2018, the CCP awarded Klaus Schwab with its China Reform Friendship Medal, a medal for non-Chinese people who do the CCP’s bidding overseas.

    “She’s a smart woman. She’s a Harvard law grad. She knew we lost the election, but she made a calculation that she wanted to have a certain life post-Trump that required staying in his good graces.”  

    She said McEnany wasn’t a “true believer” in the idea that former President Trump actually won the 2020 election. 

    After leaving the Trump administration, McEnany secured a job as a contributor on Fox News. Farah Griffin pointed to her new cable news spot in her interview with the panel, saying, “She got her FOX News gig. It worked out precisely how she’d always planned for it to, but she knew better.”

    Long long ago (and far far away) I posted a paper I was asked to write for a German/English blog on the EU. It sucked as I was restricted in length but to write it I had to do my research and it meant reading every. fucking. iteration. of the EU docs from the Rome Declaration onward. I think I’ve only posted three threads here, one on Ninon DeLenclos, [THE EXTRAORDINARY WHORE], one on hygiene in ancient Rome and that paper. It was called This Miraculous Conception or something. Maybe Bunk can find it, he found all the Iron Fist stuff, but he’s got brain fog going on and you’re not missing anything not reading it anyway. It was for a German audience.

    Anyhoo, the origins of the EU are post WW I. Not the 1950s. The administrative agency was established in 1952 but that’s not the ultimate origin.

    One of my best resources back then was the blog EU Referendum, which I used to read like a nun reads a Bible. That site has changed radically but here is one of their articles that I used as one of my sources.

    Thus, Loucheur came to reflect, industrial organisation was the key to waging war. From this he developed the idea that, if key industries from different countries, above all their coal and steel industries on which modern warfare so much depended, were removed from the control of individual nations and vested in a “higher authority”, this might be the means of preserving peace.

    From this beguilingly single concept came the spur that led Jean Monnet, 34 years after the battle of Verdun, to suggest to Schuman the idea of a European Coal and Steel Community, which in turn was to lead to the European Economic Community and thence the European Union.

    In that sense, the intellectual father of the European Union was not Monnet, much less Schuman, nor even Spinelli � all of whom are honoured in the hagiographies of the European Union. The greater claim to being the “father of Europe” rests with that almost totally unknown Frenchman, Louis Loucheur, whose work undoubtedly provided the inspiration for Monnet.

    The great tragedy though is that the idea picked up by Monnet in the 1920s (and translated into institutional format by the English civil servant Arthur Salter) was out of date by the time it came to be implemented in 1950.

    An idea born out of the carnage of the First World War, intended to prevent future wars, was a model in fact designed to prevent the Second World War. In 1945, however, when peace was finally imposed, the geopolitical situation had changed beyond all measure. That 1920s model was totally out of date and no longer appropriate.

    And I suspect, this is also the germ of The Great Reset

    They would all be pretty bad, but from what I’ve seen teachers would win by a landslide. Of course that may because there are more teachers than the other categories but it’s really bad. The schools also have a system in place to cover it up. Teacher gets accused, school shuffles them off to another district where they can hide until they do it again.
