I just added this to the last post. The girl who had a date with Kohberg is under-dramatizing her date because... of Internet weirdoes.

Oh! I just realized-- she's not underplaying it, she's being defensive. The internet being the internet, she's probably getting grief that she didn't run to the police and tell them "I know who the killer is!" based on one date with a weirdo. So she's trying to explain, yes, it was awkward and he was weird, but no, I had no reason to suspect he was a murderer, so leave me alone you weirdoes, and stop speculating that I was "concealing the identity of the killer" or whatever you "Internet Sleuths" are up to.

Anthony Fauci's pal's company, EcoHealth, which almost certainly funded the creation of the Wuhan virus, just got a fresh government grant for $3 million for virus research.

EcoHealth Alliance, the research nonprofit at the center of years' worth of lab-leak theories regarding the origin of COVID-19, has received another multimillion-dollar government grant to carry out research, federal records indicate.

An entry on USASpending.gov shows EcoHealth being awarded a $3.0 million Department of Defense grant in order to facilitate "reducing the threat of viral spillover from wildlife in the Philippines."

The grant began last month and is set to last until December of 2025, the records show.

The group was the center of controversy last fall when it received another government grant to allow it to continue the study of bat coronaviruses in Asia.

Maybe they should research spillover from the Wuhan Infectious Respiratory Virus Lab. I think they might have some real insight into that.

Sam Bankman-Fried paid off the Clintons with a $250,000 donation.

Sam Bankman-Fried cultivated ties with A-list celebrities, politicians and investors alike -- but one power couple in particular was key to boosting his profile in influential and moneyed circles.

Bill Clinton was paid north of $250,000 when he spoke at the disgraced FTX CEO's Crypto Bahamas Conference in April, sources told The Post. At the over-the-top tropical shindig, the ex-US president along with former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair were famously photographed onstage next to Bankman-Fried, who appeared wearing shorts and a T-shirt.

Shortly thereafter, Bill and Hillary Clinton invited the 30-year-old Bankman-Fried -- known as "SBF" in crypto circles -- to speak at their annual Clinton Global Initiative in New York -- an effective endorsement of the former FTX CEO that played a pivotal role in elevating his reputation among politicians and deep-pocketed investors alike, insiders told The Post.

But you say Trump's corporation's accountant may have subjectively overestimated the value of some of his properties when figuring the corporation's taxes, huh? Yeah let's make sure we really get to the bottom of that pit of corruption.

Remember when all the "journalists" quit Twitter to join leftwing utopia site Mastodon? Well the presence of all these wonderful "journalists" has failed to make Mastodon the Hot Place to be, and its growth is stagnant.

This was always ridiculous because Mastodon is a completely free speech site -- it has a huge Nazi user base and is notoriously a gathering place for p3dophiles to trade illegal pictures and videos. Mastodon doesn't ban users; it allows, instead, individual users to select who will be part of their local network. If you don't like person X, Y, and Z, you can ban them from your local list of contacts -- but they're all still on Mastodon.

The other funny thing is that as soon as "journalists" started emigrating to Mastodon, Mastodon's longtime leftwing users began banning the "journalists." They couldn't stand their snobbish, cliquey bullshit.

Mastodon of course has very few users compared to Twitter, so the narcissists and attention whores who call themselves "journalists" couldn't actually get a lot of eyeballs on their stupid snarky bullshit. (That's always a problem with calls to "just to go X competitor to a monopoly" -- yes, you can speak there, but the purpose of political speech isn't just to speak, it's also to be heard.)

And on top of the already limited reach at Mastodon, the existing population was banning "journalists"! LOL! What a wonderful turn of events!

And no one is joining Mastodon just to be able to follow Taylor Lorenz, it seems:

After a couple of months of hype and promises, the social media colonization by a slew of journalists and media figures that took place on the alternative site Mastodon is not exactly flourishing. A study of the site’s analytics finds that the expansive growth it experienced over the past couple of months has not only ebbed but now there is significant constriction taking place. After some impressive surges in new accounts since October, by the start of the new year things have turned, and now the number of active users on the site is on a sharp decline.

This is where I'd usually say "In six months they'll all be doing gay porn" but they're all ugly and probably impotent.

John Carpenter says they've been trying to remake Escape from New York for a while. He says further that the last information he has is that they're trying to remake it with a gender-swapped Snake Plissken, because of course.

The people trying to remake it say they're not really remaking it, so I guess that means they wouldn't necessarily have a character called "Snake Plissken."

But they might have a Stronk Female Badass Hero.

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Villella detailed the project is in its "very, very early stages."

He also informed them, "We're very excited to be working with 20th Century on that. We're developing our take, and hopefully, it will be going to script sometime in the New Year, and just really starting to lay the groundwork for that. But very early stages."

As for what their project actually is, Gillett detailed what it's not, "Not a remake."

He elaborated, "That's one of those properties that you can't [remake], it's sort of untouchable to us, and lives in its own stratosphere in terms of how important it is to us, and how much we love it. So it'll be not unlike Scream, I think, a nod to, and a continuation of, what we love about those characters and that world."


While Deadline's initial report indicated that the film was a reboot and that Carpenter was involved, Carpenter recently told Variety he didn't even know about the project.

When informed they had not cast the film and it was unclear whether it was a remake or a third film, Carpenter responded, "Hey, great. The last I heard was they were developing it where Snake would be a woman. But, no, I haven't heard about this latest thing."

OUT: Hollywood will do anything to make money

IN: Hollywood will do anything to lose money

But it's possible Carpenter is talking about an earlier remake attempt. I want to believe that Hollywood has finally learned its lesson after all the Woke Bombs in the last few years... and yet, they just keep making them.

San Francisco arrested the art gallery owner who hosed down the freely-defecating bum who camped out outside his business -- but not the bum illegally camping on a public sidewalk, of course.

This is the moment that three police officers arrested a San Francisco gallery owner after he hosed down a homeless woman outside his business -- as fuming locals slam the DA for wasting police recourses amid a rise in crime.

Collier Gwin, 71, was caught on camera spraying a homeless woman with a hose on January 9 after she refused to move to allow him to clear the sidewalk.

The owner of the Foster Gwin art gallery in North Beach, San Francisco, was hauled away by three police officers on January 18 after DA Brooke Jenkins ordered his arrest -- branding his actions as completely unacceptable.

This was the DA who replaced Chesa Boudin -- the one who was supposed to bring a law-and-order mentality back to the job.


I don't mean to be alarmist, but we're all going to die:

How to imitate Kamala's Kackle.

Whatever you do, ISIS: don't bomb Davos. That's where all of our beloved leaders are. We could never recover.
