Posted by the Idaho murder suspect 212 days ago, it seems:


Brian Entin @BrianEntin

I am told when Idaho quadruple homicide suspect Bryan Christopher Kohberger was in custody -- he "asked if anyone else was arrested."
I'm told he had a "quiet, blank stare."

Was he trying to suggest he had recruited other people into his murder plot?

Police found the Hyundai Elantra they were looking for, by the way. They won't elaborate about it, so we don't know if it's connected to the killer or just belongs to a random innocent.

Speaking of deranged narcissistic psychopaths responsible for many deaths:


The walls in Dr. Anthony S. Fauci's home office are adorned with portraits of him, drawn and painted by some of his many fans. The most striking one is by the singer Joan Baez. The two of them, he said, "have become pretty good friends over the years."

Dr. Fauci seemed a little uncomfortable with people knowing about the pictures. He said that previously, when they were captured on camera, the "far right" attacked him as an "egomaniac." If someone goes to the trouble of sending him a portrait of himself, he said, he would "feel like I'm disrespecting them" if he discarded it.

It was a revealing glimpse into the psyche of America's most loved and hated doctor as he wraps up more than half a century of government service at the National Institutes of Health.

People, including those on the left, are noticing that "Mayor Pete" is just a stuffed-shirt incompetent who likes going on vacation and sitting down for puff-piece interviews with the Identity Politics "press."


That's leftwing pundit David Sirota. Breitbart.com is similarly dismissive.

Three months ago, the Transportation Secretary told late-night comedian James Corden that airline travel would improve by the holiday season.

Buttigieg has reportedly ignored state attorneys general's repeated requests to protect customers and hold airlines accountable for canceling flights in the months leading up to the ongoing holiday travel fiasco.

Breitbart notes that Democrat Congressman Ro Khanna is tired of Mayor Pete's bungling and vacationing.

In a tweet on Thursday, Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA), one of the few Democrats who criticized Twitter's decision to censor the Hunter Biden laptop story, publicly scolded Buttigieg for not sticking to his pledge to hold airlines accountable.

"Nearly six months ago ⁦@BernieSanders⁩ & I called for Buttigieg to implement fines & penalties on airlines for cancelling flights. Why were these recommendations not followed?" the congressman tweeted. "This mess with Southwest could have been avoided. We need bold action."

A Sanders ally, Nina Turner, said of Bootyjudge: "This is incompetence."

I'm not endorsing the government getting involved. I'm just pointing out that the knives are out for Bootyjudge.

A new lawsuit alleges that Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler convinced a woman to give him legal guardianship of her daughter, and then sexually assaulted the underaged girl.

She was apparently 16 at the time. She says she was "powerless to resist" Tyler's seduction. Which is not your classic "assault," but she was underage, so. Capacity to consent is at issue.

Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler is being accused of sexual assault, sexual battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress in a new lawsuit from a woman who claims to have had a relationship with him when she was a teenage girl.

Julia Holcomb is alleging that Tyler convinced Holcomb's mother to grant him guardianship over her when she was 16 years old, which paved the way for a sexual relationship from about 1973 to 1976, according to a Rolling Stone report published Thursday. Tyler, who was born in 1948, would have been in his mid-20s at the time.

Holcomb reportedly doesn't name Tyler in the suit, instead referring to the defendants as Defendant Doe 1 and Does 2 through 50.

The Post has reached out to Tyler's representatives for comment. Tyler, 74, suffered a drug relapse and "voluntarily" checked into rehab in May.

Holcomb alleges in the suit she was "powerless to resist" Tyler's "power, fame, and substantial financial ability," according to news reports.

She reportedly claims Tyler "coerced and persuaded" her into believing they were having a "romantic love affair."

Rolling Stone notes that Tyler's 2011 memoir "Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?" references a relationship with a 16-year-old girl and mentions a Julia Halcomb in the acknowledgments.

The New York Times has a problem with people using the Signal app to avoid surveillance by the government.

The ethical universe, according to Signal, is simple: The privacy of individuals must be respected above all else, come what may. If terrorists or child abusers or other criminals use the app, or one like it, to coordinate activities or share child sexual abuse imagery behind impenetrable closed doors, that's a shame -- but privacy is all that matters.

One should always worry when a person or an organization places one value above all. The moral fabric of our world is complex. It's nuanced. Sensitivity to moral nuance is difficult, but unwavering support of one principle to rule them all is morally dangerous.

The way Signal wields the word "surveillance" reflects its coarsegrained understanding of morality. To the company, surveillance covers everything from a server holding encrypted data that no one looks at to a law enforcement agent reading data after obtaining a warrant to East Germany randomly tapping citizens' phones. One cannot think carefully about the value of privacy -- including its relative importance to other values in particular contexts -- with such a broad brush.

What's more, the company's proposition that if anyone has access to data, then many unauthorized people probably will have access to that data is false. This response reflects a lack of faith in good governance, which is essential to any well-functioning organization or community seeking to keep its members and society at large safe from bad actors.

They take this position, of course, because they know the left owns the government bureaucracy, and will protect their fellow travelers from snooping and leaking.

And they know their fellow leftists will use their power to punish their enemies on the right.

Were the situation reversed, they'd be shrieking.

FBI plant Ray Epps continues being protected by the FBI, despite admitting to having "orchestrated" January 6th:

The "New Science:" A study finds that monkeypox infections in women are similar to those in men.

This is because the "study" included 50% men who claim to be women or "non-binary." It just counted them as women, and then said, wow, look how similar these "women's" infection rates are to men's.

One big difference: Women get lesions around their vaginas, while the "women" in this study got them around their anuses.

A study on monkeypox in women was published in The Lancet recently in which almost half of the cohort being studied were males who identify as women.


Around 90% of the cases reported sex with men, and 27% were living with HIV, with 50% of the males who identify as women also being HIV+ compared to just 8% of the actual women.

The study concluded that the "clinical features of monkeypox in women and non-binary individuals were similar to those described in men," and that anatomically, "anogenital lesions were reflective of sexual practices: vulvovaginal lesions predominated in cis women and non-binary individuals and anorectal features predominated in trans women."

Gee I wonder why.

This is The Science.

Don't you trust The Science?!?!?!

A woman in England stood near an abortion clinic. A cop asked her if she was silently praying. She said she might be. The cop arrested her, because silent prayer is defined as "protest" and you're not allowed to protest an abortion clinic.

That "context" added by Twitter liberals is a lie. It was only the silent prayer that put her crosswise with the law -- so yes, she was arrested for silently praying.
