The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

"I saw with tears in my eyes how the mob desecrated crosses on the roofs of the churches and in graveyards and ruined church buildings. They burnt so many Bibles and altars... The condition in Pakistan is very bad... So much hatred, jealousy, envy and enmity from the Muslims towards Christians. It seems that we Christians are like animals to them. Whenever they want to kill, they kill, and whenever they want to spare, they give free hand." Rev. Deacon Daud Irshad

Portland School Superintendent: The Real Problem Isn't That There's a Violently Insane Boy Dressing as a Girl and Beating the Hell Out of Girls, The Problem Is That Those "External to the Community" Noticed

—Disinformation Expert Ace

The transgender girl-pummeller is the real victim here.

Sure, the superintendent admitted that the Hazelbrook Middle School boy wearing a girl's crop top and long hair was in the wrong for beating up a girl, but the situation had gotten outsized only because parents had made a beating at school such a big deal.

Sniveled Superintendent Sue Reiki-Smith, "Because the video of the assault eventually went viral on social media... there were issues raised by the outside community, not internal to the district but external to the district... adults nationwide," and this was a problem, she said, because they were "calling out the student's gender ... [and] that is the hate we're dealing with right now."

It takes a special kind of gall to attempt to divert attention away from the real victim of hate here -- the girl -- to mollify the trans mafia, and this effort was beyond heinous considering what she was trying to paper over.

Sure it's too bad about the girls getting concussions and living in terror... but the real issue is Trans Acceptance.

Insurrectionist Who Obstructed an Official Act of Congress Jamaal Bowman: I Know Who the Real Fire-Alarm Activtor Was -- "Nazi Republicans"

—Disinformation Expert Ace

Kick this motherfucker out and prosecute him.

If you didn't hear about it, Jamaal Bowman pulled a fire alarm to stop a vote on the debt deal.

He then lied and claimed he thought that a fire alarm opened doors.

Bowman's press secretary, Emma Simon, said the signs confused him. "Congressman Bowman did not realize he would trigger a building alarm as he was rushing to make an urgent vote. The Congressman regrets any confusion," she said, according to Axios' Andrew Solender.

But the signs that perplexed Bowman were deemed to be readable at a third-grade level, according to readabilityformulas.com's Automated Readability Index.

"Today as I was rushing to make a vote, I came to a door that is usually open for votes but today would not open," Bowman, the founder and former principal of a public middle school in the Bronx, said in a statement. "I am embarrassed to admit that I activated the fire alarm, mistakenly thinking it would open the door. I regret this and sincerely apologize for any confusion this caused," he continued.

He knows who's to blame for his profound learning disability, however -- Republican "Nazis."

Democratic Rep. Jamaal Bowman sent out a list of talking points for his colleagues Monday blaming Republican "Nazi[s]" after he set off a fire alarm as the House of Representatives was in the process of approving a spending bill to avoid a government shutdown, according to a memo.

Republicans called for Bowman's impeachment after he was caught on camera hitting a fire alarm during a crucial vote on a funding package Saturday, despite his claims that it was an accident. Bowman's office distributed a memo to fellow Democrats, with suggested talking points on the "extreme reach" of "MAGA Republicans" and the "Nazi members" of the GOP, according to the document.

"I believe Congressman Bowman when he says this was an accident," one of the prompts reads. "Republicans need to instead focus their energy on the Nazi members of their party before anything else."

The memo was first reported by Politico.

Another talking point claimed that there are "multiple insurrectionist supporters in Congress" and that focus on Bowman was designed to "minimize January 6th," according to the memo. Several points blamed the GOP for trying to "distract from the fact" that they almost "shut down the federal government for no reason."

Bowman argued in a statement Saturday that the signs for the doors leading to the House floor had confused him, leading to him flipping the wrong switch. The signs in question read "Emergency Exit Only" and "Push Until Alarm Sounds."

"Today as I was rushing to make a vote, I came to a door that is usually open for votes but today would not open," Bowman said. "I am embarrassed to admit that I activated the fire alarm, mistakenly thinking it would open the door. I regret this and sincerely apologize for any confusion this caused," he continued.

In the District of Columbia, it is illegal for any individual to "willfully or knowingly give a false alarm of fire," according to district law. As a result, Bowman could potentially face a misdemeanor charge and be sentenced to up to six months in prison with a fine of no more than $100.

Either this motherfucker goes to jail or every J6er gets released from prison and paid $10,000 for each day they were detained.

Breitbart reports he was spotted pulling signs down before pulling the alarm. Possibly attempting to prepare a defense before committing the crime.

Someone pointed out this this confessedly-stupid ignorant man used to " " " teach " " " public school. He spent years " " " working " " " in a government school but is mystified about the function of a fire alarm?

"The View" has figured out what really happened:

Just like They did to Brother O.J.!

"I don't want to call it a stunt yet. There's going to be an investigation," Sunny Hostin said. "I know Jamaal, and so again, I'm a little biased, but the doors that are normally open so that he could get to the chambers to read were somehow miraculously closed. How did that happen?"

"Sometimes you're freaking out and you're in an elevator and you're pressing all the buttons," Hostin continued.

So you're saying he's a very low-IQ individual with essentially animal intelligence?

"Journalist" Who Downplayed Violent Crime in Philadelphia Is Shot and Killed in Own Home

—Disinformation Expert Ace

Try not to laugh.


The Post-Millennial:

BREAKING: Leftist journalist who downplayed violent crime gunned down in his Philly home

Kruger called a man an "idiot" for suggesting one would die of a gunshot in Philly rather than Covid.

BREAKING: Leftist journalist who downplayed violent crime gunned down in his Philly
Josh Kruger, a leftist journalist and activist who was based in Philadelphia, was shot and killed inside his home on Monday. Kruger had a long history of downplaying violent crime in the city, often openly mocking those who expressed concerns about homicides in Philadelphia.

"Look, it's that lawless land of liberals in Philly where shootings are...dropping to levels not seen in years," read a past post by Kruger.


The 39-year-old Kruger was shot seven times at a residence in the 2300 block of Watkins Street around 1:30 am Monday, reports 6 ABC.

He was a "community activist," too, reportedly a "strong advocate" for the (shock) "LGBTQ Community."

I don't want to prejudge the obvious situation but I'm going to go out on a limb and predict that a member of LGBTQ Community turned out to be a "strong advocate" for ventilating his guts.

Axios: "Some Democrats" Worry That Biden Is Wrapping the Biden Economy Around His Own Neck

—Disinformation Expert Ace

Axios reports that their Democrat friends and sex-partners are getting worried about Gammy Biden.

Why It Matters: Axios is Politico for Kidz! (TM) and millions of children 13 and under form their political opinions based on what Axios lies about.

The Biden re-election campaign's decision to brand the economy under the president's name (Bidenomics) is looking like an early blunder that misread the public's deep pessimism about how things are going on that front.

Why it matters: Despite some encouraging economic trends -- unemployment is low, inflation seems to be tamed -- polling shows that Americans' overall perception of the economy is sour.

Driving the news: Some prominent Democrats are now openly criticizing the Biden campaign's strategy, arguing that it appears to be in denial of Americans' economic reality.

"We have to do a better job framing this not so much for one person -- for the office of the presidency -- but for the people," Rep. Steven Horsford (D-Nev.) told Politico.

"I've never understood why you would brand an economy in your name when the economy hasn't fully recovered yet," Michael LaRosa, a former spokesman for Jill Biden, told the publication.

"Whatever stories Americans are told about the strength of the economy under President Joe Biden, they are not going to be persuaded to look past the issue of their own living standards," liberal economist James Galbraith wrote.


His campaign ads laud the passage of COVID emergency funds, the bipartisan infrastructure law, the Inflation Reduction Act and funding for semiconductor manufacturing.

But so far, the message isn't resonating -- especially among the working-class Americans he's trying to win over. Polling indicates that college-educated voters are generally satisfied with the state of the economy, but voters living paycheck to paycheck are disillusioned.

By the numbers: Only 28% of Americans said they were "very" or "somewhat" satisfied with the state of the economy in a new NBC poll -- the lowest level of economic satisfaction in nearly a decade of the network's polling.

Biden's economic approval rating sits at 37%, with 59% of respondents expressing disapproval of his performance.

The NBC survey showed that Republicans hold a whopping 21-point advantage over Democrats on the economy (49%-28%), the largest lead Republicans have held in 32 years.

The poll also shows that Democrats only hold a 2-point edge (36%-34%) on looking out for the middle class, an area in which the party typically holds a significant advantage.

What Comes Next: Democrats begin asking "how do we get grandpa to step down from his role as the country's CEO?"

The Wall Street Journal reports this morning Democrats' "fears are growing" that voters may not buy their spin that Joe Biden is mentally competent enough for this term, let alone another. And they wonder how -- and if -- they can pull the plug to salvage the 2024 electoral cycle:
Conversations with more than a dozen leading Democrats revealed the pervasive, but mostly private, sense of worry that hangs over the race. Some compare this moment to the 2016 cycle when many top Democrats brushed aside Hillary Clinton's vulnerabilities only to watch her ultimately lose to Trump. But this is in many ways a different case--a sitting president facing clear frustration from voters, including those within his own party.

"It is a little bit like your grandfather running the company and you know that he's at a point now where the heirs could suffer value if we don't change management at the top," said Philip Levine, a former Democratic mayor of Miami Beach, Fla., who has expressed support for No Labels, a centrist group that has suggested it may run a third-party candidate. "And this is very difficult. How do we get grandpa to relinquish the CEO role?"

Other Democrats would only echo those sentiments in private. Said one member of the Democratic National Committee: "It would be irresponsible for us to not be concerned at this point. People can be hopeful about what the result is going to be. But we don't have any evidence as to why we should be hopeful. The polling is bad. The approval ratings are bad. We know about concerns about both the president's age and about the vice president if she were to take over."

Zoom Out: Biden is old as f*ck and is aging like summer milk.

Poll: 52% of Country Is Done with Covid Non-Vaccinating Vaccines

—Disinformation Expert Ace

The leftwing group Kaiser claims that the 46% of the country who will get the vaccine constitutes "most of the country."

Never trust a man who will lie to you about things which are self-evidently false.

Among U.S. adults, 52% say they will "probably" or "definitely" not get the new COVID-19 vaccine, according to the latest KFF (Kaiser Family Foundation) COVID-19 Vaccine Monitor poll.

Conversely, 23% of adults "definitely" plan to get the vaccine -- while another 23% will "probably" get it.

Among the people who said they "definitely" or "probably" will get the new shot, most are Democrats and/or at least 65 years old, the poll found.

Seventy percent of Democrats plan to get the new vaccine.

That's compared to just 24% of Republicans.

The survey, which was conducted between Sept. 6 and Sept. 13, polled 1,296 U.S. adults via online and telephone polls.

Based in San Francisco, KFF is a self-described "independent source for health policy research, polling and journalism."

"The poll shows that most of the nation still trusts the CDC and the FDA on vaccines -- but there is a partisan gap, and most Republicans don't trust the nation's regulatory and scientific agencies responsible for vaccine approval and guidance," KFF's president and CEO, Drew Altman, said in a press release.

Less than 50% of the country is now "most of the nation"? 46% of the public (23% will "definitely" get the new vaccine, 23% will "probably" get it) now counts as a majority?

Oh -- they meant what hateful progressives always mean. They mean that most of the people who we count as "people" agree with the left.

There is also a partisan divide in terms of COVID precautions, the poll found.

Among Democrats, 58% are likely to take extra precautions -- including wearing masks, forgoing travel and avoiding public gatherings -- amid rising COVID cases.

But just 16% of Republicans said they would be likely to do the same.

Among the people who said they "definitely" or "probably" will get the new shot, most are Democrats and/or at least 65 years old, the poll found.

Regarding giving the new vaccine to children, more than half of parents say they "probably" or "definitely" will not do so -- despite the fact that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends it for children 6 months and older.

In other words, "most of the nation" trust the CDC, according to KFF.

Note that those pushing Regime Propaganda are permitted to spread lies and disinformation. In fact, the Regime rewards them for doing so.

McCarthy Caves; No Money for Border Security in Stopgap Spending Deal

—Disinformation Expert Ace


Rep. Byron Donalds, R-Fla., says Speaker Kevin McCarthy is "in trouble" after the last-minute vote to fund the government this weekend, saying the deal was a victory for Democrats.

Donalds made the comments during an appearance on "Fox News Sunday" with host Shannon Bream. He said Republicans "did not get anything" from Saturday's short-term funding agreement. The GOP firebrand fell short of saying he would vote to boot McCarthy, R-Calif., from the speaker's office but said Republicans in the chamber are deeply divided.

Bream referenced comments from House Democratic Leader Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., who declared Saturday that "the extreme MAGA Republicans have lost."

"Look, I'm gonna be honest. We did not get anything out of this continued resolution," Donalds said. "The border is still unsecured in our country. Why is that? That's because Joe Biden and the Democrats got their way. The Democrat members are very happy with what they got. I think this is a terrible deal for the American people."

"Cutting this government's spending down must happen. Inflation is still running rampant. That's not MAGA Republican, that's common sense. Having a secure border -- that's not MAGA Republican, that's common sense," he added.

Bream then pressed Donalds on McCarthy's status with the Republican caucus. Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., has threatened repeatedly to file a motion to vacate against the speaker.

"I think he is in trouble," Donalds said. "There has to be some level of strong leadership in our chamber, I'm just gonna be totally blunt. There are a lot of trust issues in our chamber right now, where people feel on both sides of our conference that everybody's not gonna hold hands and continue to do this work together."

Donalds nevertheless fell short of saying he would vote in favor of a motion to vacate against McCarthy. He also said he can't predict whether Democrats would vote in favor of such a motion.

AOC says she'll vote in favor of it.

There is also no money for Ukraine. But Biden will of course spend money on Ukraine whether it is authorized by Congress or not.

Below: The border is wide open. A group of hundreds of illegals had gathered on the US side of the Rio Grande but were halted by a fence erected by Abbott.

So Border Patrol cut the fence, and fist-bumped the illegals as they invaded the country.

THE MORNING RANT: A Couple of True Anecdotes About “Range Anxiety” – the Insurmountable Hurdle for EVs

—Buck Throckmorton

For all the problems that electric vehicles have, the greatest impediment to them being widely adopted is their range limitation combined with the lengthy time it takes to re-charge…if a functioning charger can even be found.

I would like to share two true anecdotes about “range anxiety” today:

1) A co-worker (“Zeke”) returned to the office from an out of town trip and was greeted by co-workers who asked him how it went. He replied that it was great until the journey home, at which point he stated loudly, ”I will never, EVER, buy an electric vehicle.” This obviously got my attention, and I joined the group of employees listening as he related his odyssey.

On his flight home, Zeke and his wife were supposed to change planes in Atlanta, but weather caused the plane to put down in a smaller city in a neighboring state. This other city was just under 150 miles away from Zeke’s home, so he and his wife decided to just drive the rest of the way home. They went to the rental car desks in the hope of renting a car, only to find out that they had been cleaned out of all vehicles…except for a couple of EVs. Zeke said he’d love to rent an EV if it could get him home, so they rented him one, which showed a remaining range of almost 200 miles.

It was a hot, Southern, summer night, and with the AC blasting, Zeke soon noticed that the difference between remaining range and the miles to get home was steadily decreasing. When halfway home, he realized this was getting serious, so they turned off the A/C and started searching their phones for charging stations. It was late at night, and they didn’t really care to stop for an hour to get a sip of electricity, but they prefered that to losing all power. Unfortunately, they couldn’t even find any charging stations.

When they reached the outskirts of their hometown, they had less than 15 miles of range left, maybe enough to get home, but not enough to get back to a charging station the next morning. They parked the EV at a facility with a charger, then called an Uber to take them the rest of the way home. The next morning they had to return to the parked EV and spend an hour trying to get some juice in it before finally being able to turn it in at the local rental car office.


2) It was Spring of 2021, and my wife and I had just arrived in Hilton Head for a short getaway vacation when news broke of the ransomware attack on the Colonial gas pipeline. That attack pretty much put a halt to gasoline deliveries in much of the eastern seaboard, including the state of Georgia, through which my wife and I would have to drive to get back home when our stay ended.

I immediately topped off my tank. We were 425 miles away from home. With mostly highway driving, that tank of gas might take us about 400 miles, close enough to home that someone could come fetch us if necessary.

But while in the Low Country, we had also planned to visit Savannah. That round trip would consume about 65 miles of our "range." Plus, we wanted to just slowly drive around Savannah to look at the live oaks, moss, and architecture. That was going to burn more precious range.

The Morning Report — 10/2/23

—J.J. Sefton


Good morning, kids. A few interesting things making waves this morning. First, in the wake of Friday's official fossilization of Feinstein and her soul taking the express elevator all the way down, I had hoped to use the headline "Choosy Mothers Choose Schiff." Alas, as I had suspected would be the case, the greasy governor of California chose a black woman. Shocking right? Meh, had he not done that as he had promised, whatever his chances at winning the Biden replacement derby would have gone right down the same Atlanta toilet that floated the demented criminal into the Oval Office in 2020.

So, congratulations to Senatrix Laphonza Butler. Her experience? Aside from melanin content, chromosomal makeup (which is fast becoming obsolete since leftists don't really know what exactly the definition of a woman is these days) and most crucially, anti-American bona fides, she served as president of Emily's List. Per the invaluable Discover the Networks:

EMILY’s List (EL) is a political action committee that raises millions of dollars each year for Democratic, pro-choice, female candidates running for elected office. The organization strives to make these funds available to the recipients as early as possible in each election cycle, so as to give them every opportunity to gain maximum public exposure and credibility, and thus to access additional campaign donations from a wide variety of sources thereafter. “EMILY” is an acronym standing for “Early Money Is Like Yeast,” which, as EL’s slogan puts it, “helps the [political] dough rise."

In this case, more like a yeast infection. Funny that they refer to dough rising, since it's kind of close to the antithetical "bun in the oven." And what the hell kind of name is Laphonza? But I digress.

As for the real focus of this story, Gavin Newsom, a) he kept his promise and did not alienate blacks, dames and lezbos, and thereby totally sabotage his chances should he decide to seek the Dem nomination, b) it's only to fill out the remainder of Feinstein's term which is up this coming cycle, so Karen Bass, Schiff-for-Brains and whoever else can fight it out amongst themselves thereby allowing Newsom to keep his hair perfect like a London werewolf, c) this makes no difference to the already doomed state of California but courtesy of the 17th Amendment, it affects the rest of the nation just as the framers of the Constitution never intended it.

Another interesting little tidbit about this broad, from just this past June:

EMILY’s List — an organization whose goal is to elect pro-abortion Democrat women to public office — told Politico over the weekend about its plans to promote the epically incompetent VP, whose approval ratings have teetered around the low-40s and mid-30s for much of [so-called quote-unquote "president"] Biden’s first term. . .

. . . President of EMILY’s List Laphonza Butler told the outlet that the PAC wants to “push back against the massive misinformation and disinformation that’s been directed towards [Chlamydia Harris] since she’s been elected.” The PAC previously supported Harris in 2020 after she was announced as Biden’s running mate, and Butler also helped guide Harris’s failed presidential bid while working for a leading California political consulting firm.

So, maybe it's a case of "friends close, enemies closer" for Newsom or else an indicator that he believes Harris is on the outs, or promoting an ally of hers as a means to influence her loyalties?

Meanwhile, back in D.C., as the GOP fights tooth and nail to maintain its position as a sham opposition party, during the vote to prevent a dreaded shutdown of the government, this horrid assclown pulled a less than cunning stunt. Emphasis on the word "pulled":

“Rep Jamaal Bowman pulled a fire alarm in Cannon this morning,” House Administration Committee Chair Bryan Steil (R-Wisc.) said in a statement. “An investigation into why it was pulled is underway.”

A spokeswoman for Bowman told Axios that the congressman “did not realize he would trigger a building alarm as he was rushing to make an urgent vote” and that he “regrets any confusion.”

It doesn’t seem that Republicans are buying that story. Reps. Harriet Hageman (R-Wyo.) and Lisa McClain (R-Mich.) are both drafting resolutions to censure Bowman, and Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-N.Y.), has already drafted a resolution to expel Bowman from the House.

Censure appears more likely, as it only requires a simple majority, while expulsion requires a two-thirds vote, meaning that a significant number of Democrats would have to join with Republicans to expel a member of their party. And that’s not likely to happen. According to the report, there is footage of Bowman pulling the alarm, and at least one Democrat is all but denying that it is, in fact, Bowman. . .

. . . According to sources who spoke with Fox News Digital, the alarm was pulled right shortly after House Republicans made the announcement they’d be expediting a stopgap spending bill, commonly referred to as a continuing resolution (CR) to extend government funding for 45 days, for consideration on the House floor on Saturday. According to the report, the announcement caught Democrats off-guard, and they complained that they weren’t given enough time to read the bill.

Based on a publicly released photo of the incident, it is clear that this was not an accidental pulling of the fire alarm but instead a ridiculous effort to delay the vote averting a shutdown.

It's funny because all the multi-thousand-page catastrophes written by lobbyists are shoved down our throats without time to read or debate them. And anyone who objects is viewed as a heinous, uncaring racist who wants to throw grandma off a cliff and see little children starve.

As for Jamal Bowman, in a nest of anti-American, anti-Semitic, sub-literate, shrill, shrieking Maoists, he's about as low a scumbag as you can find. And that's saying something. Then again, look who his biggest booster is:

Anchor Jake Tapper said, “There was an interesting moment over the weekend when your New York colleague, Congressman Jamaal Bowman, he’s under investigation for this now after Capitol Police say he pulled a fire alarm in one of the House office buildings. Democrats were trying to delay a final vote on the bill. There he is, pulling the fire alarm. He says it was an accident. He thought pulling the alarm would open a door based on the fact that the doors to his right there was locked, and there was a sign that I think someone said it was confusing. I’ll be honest. It doesn’t really make sense to me, his explanation. Have you talked to him?”

Ocasio-Cortez said, “I think if you actually do see some of the photos of the signs, I think there’s something to be said about the government’s about to shut down, there’s a vote clock that’s going down, the exits that are normally open in that building are suddenly closed.”

So, he's too stupid to know what a friggin' fire alarm looks like? More like Titty Caca thinks we're too stupid to discern a bald-faced lie. From what I understand one of the reasons they pulled this shit was because the CR did not have any funds going to pay off Zelensky.

In any case, what Bowman did was indeed the dictionary definition of what all of the innocent dupes who were caught up in the FBI/DOJ false flag sting operation on January 6th have been accused of – many of whom tried, convicted and sentenced to long stretches in federal prison. And what he did was worse as it could have led to actual physical harm. As opposed to the crime against humanity of walking around with a police escort dressed as Chief Wild Eagle or putting your feet up on Malig-Nancy Pelosi's desk. The horror. The horror . . .

In a completely bizarre decision, Dem. Rep. Jamaal Bowman (NY) committed a misdemeanor and potential felony in order to stop the Constitutional function of government. I kid you not. . .

. . . We are talking breaking the law here, an act apparently performed with the goal of disrupting Constitutional congressional work. This is a Constitutional crisis because he intended to upend our Constitutional order and to topple our democracy. And stuff. Isn’t that how this works? I think so, according to the Democrats’ own rules, so this felony needs to be pursued and this man held accountable.

He won't be held accountable, because Democrat. If he actually were held accountable, cities would burn.

The Epoch Times video titled "The Real Story of January 6 "reveals the truth that has been hidden from the American people.  While a narrative has been set that what took place that day was an insurrection, key events and witnesses have been ignored until now.  The documentary takes an unvarnished look at police use of force and the deaths that resulted in some measure from it."

Robert Spencer asserts that "it is by now abundantly clear that the Jan 6 "insurrection" was not the work of Trump supporters, but of Leftist plants in the crowd at the Capitol[.]  Any lingering doubt about this has now been put definitively to rest by the revelation that those who ran the House Jan. 6 Committee show trial did not preserve mountains of evidence that apparently disproved the left's official narrative about what happened on that fateful day.  Like the Stalinists they are, it looks as if they framed their enemies and then destroyed the evidence of their own crime."

Christopher Roach points out that "there is now a very clear hierarchy for those caught up within the federal criminal justice system.  Left-wing offenders are the least culpable, and they get prosecutors to argue for downward departures.  Then come street criminals, who are sentenced within the guidelines.  Then there are those on the right, who face novel charges and get the book thrown at them."

There is some precedent for this. Soviet dissident Alexander Solzhenitsyn wrote in the Gulag Archipelago how political prisoners were treated worse in the Soviet system than regular criminals, whom the regime used to terrorize its political enemies. We also know how the Soviet Union, like other totalitarian regimes, created a whole class of pseudocriminals, who were given extremely harsh sentences for things like telling the wrong kinds of jokes or convoluted claims of sabotage and hoarding.

Between censorship, rigged elections, relentless propaganda, and two-tiered criminal punishment, the system is not leaving many ordinary political options for its opposition.

. . . The prisoners in the District of Columbia Jail have stated that they are "all but slowly murdered in every way except for their very soul being ripped from their famished chests on behalf of this mercilessly sinister institution."

Speaking of "burning," and as to Solzhenitsyn . . .

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

  • Richard Fernandez: "Corruption may be extensive in Washington, and there is no reason to suppose it is confined to one party. The problem is that you need a clean rag if you’re to wipe a table. If all the rags are dirty, then you’re only moving the dirt around. If the extent of corruption is unknown then where the clean rags are in Washington will be a basic problem. Perhaps the only reliable way to clean the mess up is turnover. That is to churn Washington, to turn everybody in the capital out of office after a certain period, from every party, regardless. But even that might not be enough."

  • Can generative AI solve the greatest problem in computer science? No. What are you, stupid? (ZDNet)

    "Researchers" are trying to use GPT-4 to prove one way or another whether P = NP.

    Broadly speaking, the question is, for a given mathematical problem, if you can prove that a correct answer is in fact correct, is there always an efficient way to find that answer in the first place? (Though "efficient" in some cases might be relative to the lifespan of the universe.)

    Nobody knows. Nobody knows if it is possible to know. But we do know that you can't find out by asking ChatGPT.

    The only good part of this is that you're not paying for it. The "research" is funded by Microsoft (which owns a big chunk of ChatGPT creator OpenAI) and China.

Quote II

Govern? Oh please. While we are drowning in debt, being overwhelmed at the southern border and inflation is spiraling you want to govern and play footsie with the Dems. When the proverbial shit hits the fan, these grifters will be set up with their insider deals while us Common Men suffer. Fuck you Kev is not harsh enough.

Food Thread: A True Smorgasbord

—Misanthropic Humanitarian



Good afternoon Foodies. The Honorable CBD is on a secret mission. If I tell you anymore I will have to ban you. So let's avoid that shall we.

Today's opening photo is Mamma Misanthrope's "Crazy Cake".

My Mother grew up in the great depression. This cake was from that era. She made it frequently as I was growing up. But, I haven't had it in years. As can happen with families when parents pass on or move into nursing facilities her recipe card box and many of her cook books end up missing.

Fast forward to 2023. One of my cousins came to visit Casa Misanthrope this year. In her possession were several recipe card boxes which had been her Mother's. Long story short: As we were going through the boxes I found the recipe for Crazy Cake in my Mother's handwriting. She had written it out and had given it to my aunt.

The handwritten recipe concludes with the following sentence: "I use to put caramel or chocolate frosting. Now I buy the cheapest can in the store."

That piece of cake in the photo has no frosting. But, if you want to make a delicious frosting for it. Simple and tasty chocolate ganache FTW.

Now that you saw the cake and have frosting idea I suppose you want to make Crazy Cake. Here goes:

In Memoriam: Diane Feinstein...With Thanks


Commenter "rd" said it best!

US Senator Diane Feinstein died.

The dedicated Gun Grabber can go to her grave knowing that she made that "Evil" AR-15 rifle the most popular firearm in the United States of America. Thanks to that ill thought out Clinton Era "assault weapons ban," Americans in unison raised their middle fingers to Washington DC, and preceded to buy, make, and import millions of semiautomatic rifles.

Building and modifying and rebuilding your own AR patterned rifle became a rite of passage for freedom loving Americans. We took a standard.223 caliber rifle, and invented a bunch of new rifle rounds like .300 Blackout, .338 Lapua, and a dozen more for it. We made short barrel rifles, pistols, and even T-shirt launchers out of them.

The AR-15 went from a niche product of Colt Firearms to being a popular, well selling product built by almost every US Firearms manufacturer, with dozens of start up companies building their own versions, and hundreds of companies getting into the business of manufacturing parts for AR rifles.

Thank you Diane Feinstein. Without your ham-fisted "Assault Weapons Ban," millions of Americans would never have became firearms enthusiasts.

  • Betteridge Falls: How overly-convenient Obama-era psychological research continues to unravel, to the point that it endangers the entire field. (New Yorker)

    I've mentioned Dan Ariely and Francesca Gino before, and how their research data appears to have frequent disconnects with reality. A team of researchers called Data Colada has been doing a deep dive into over a decade of papers authored or co-authored by the two, and found a lot of problems.

    I say that because Data Colada is now facing a $25 million defamation lawsuit for daring to question Gino's methodology, even though it increasingly looks closer to masturbation than rigorous science.

    Speaking of which:
    George Loewenstein, a titan of behavioral science and a co-author of Ariely's masturbation paper, has refashioned his research program, conceding that his own work might have contributed to an emphasis on the individual at the expense of the systemic. "This is the stuff that C.E.O.s love, right?" Luigi Zingales, an economist at the University of Chicago, told me. "It's cutesy, it's not really touching their power, and pretends to do the right thing."
    CEOs and Democratic presidents.
    At the end of [Joe] Simmons's unpublished post [for Data Colada], he writes, "An influential portion of our literature is effectively a made-up story of human-like creatures who are so malleable that virtually any intervention administered at one point in time can drastically change their behavior." He adds that a "field cannot reward truth if it does not or cannot decipher it, so it rewards other things instead. Interestingness. Novelty. Speed. Impact. Fantasy. And it effectively punishes the opposite. Intuitive Findings. Incremental Progress. Care. Curiosity. Reality."
    It also cannot reward truth if the auditors can be sued into silence.
