The Morning Report 4/5/21 - J.J. Sefton
— Ace Open Blog

Good morning, kids. Monday and fingers crossed this is working. A fire in Utah knocking us out sounds almost as wacky as a toilet backing up in Atlanta flooding six states on Election Night. Almost. Unfortunately there will be no editorial this morning. It took me about two hours to completely reformat everything for this site (feh). That said, everything is pretty much self-explanatory so talk amongst yourselves. Hopefully this will be fixed by tonight or tomorrow. You can always go over to my site as well in case this thing is a total FUBAR. I will repost there shortly.


Fingers crossed

  • Our intrepid science reporter with a twofer of some breaking science stories. First, "These would make a total of 5 or 6 leaks found in the 20+ year old Zvezda module... all suggest that the leaks represent a more systemic problem, possibly related to stress fractures from age and wear."  More Leaks Found in Russian Zvezda Module on ISS</a> 
  • Next up, "Science is always uncertain, though some areas of research are more certain than others. Climate science and the future temperature of our Earth falls more on the uncertain end of the scale, no matter what politicians might tell you. It is not only strongly impacted by the Sun and its cycles, there are many other factors (clouds, pollution, volcanic activity, the atmosphere’s complex make-up) whose long term influence on the global climate remain very unsettled Any one of these might easily offset the increase in carbon dioxide that we are adding to the atmosphere, especially because even with that increase CO2 remains an atmospheric trace gas, far less influential on the atmosphere’s temperature than water."  Sunspot Update: Higher Than Predicted Activity Continues</a>

 

CULTURE WARS, NATIONAL SUICIDE


 

 

HITHER & YON

27 I don't dislike New Pixy, if that's what it is. The absence of the sidebar is unfun, though. I hope there are plans to restore it. The sidebar's irreverant madness is a highlight.

47 News fit to print: the formatting syntax is the same. I suspect that the rich text formatting options in the text box - always absent on Chromium-based browsers before - probably work, but I am more than a bit gunshy about it based on my less-than-stellar results with Firefox before. Linebreaks are weird. I need a double space to get a single space in the comments.

Another great thing: Unicode support, finally! You can haz emdash: —

If the GOP were anywhere near as good as the Dems at rallying together and presenting a simple, unified message, this could be a lay-up for "our" side.  The GOP should have chosen this hill - Voter ID / election integrity - as the one to fight for and perhaps die for.  Instead, they have repeatedly chosen to NOT fight for election integrity -- and die anyway.

160 China last week signed a $400 billion, 30-year investment deal with Iran. American sanctions against Iran are effectively nullified. China's state press declared, "As it stands, this deal will totally upend the prevailing geopolitical landscape in the West Asian region that has for so long been subject to US hegemony." As former Indian diplomat MK Bhadrakumar reports in Asia Times, Chinese state media declare that China will trade with Iran and other Central Asian currencies in its own currency, bypassing the dollar-based world banking system. U.S. leverage against Iran is gone. It was obvious for the past year that China might play the Iran card.
President Biden said that he didn't understand the move as he claimed a "hegemon" was a Jamaican gardener.

60 Minutes describes itself as a "CBS News Magazine." Let's break it down:
"CBS" == "Cock and bull story." This is, if you'll recall, the home of "fake but accurate" and Dan Rather.
"News" == controlled narrative construction and maintenance industry. They lie not only out of necessity, but by preference.
"Magazine" == porno (at least in the pre-Web days).

Put it all together and what do we get? Pornography made by liars who have a long history of lying and who try to titillate the public. Consider all of this any time you're considering their produce.

171 From Townhall:  Sen. Raphael Warnock, who once served as senior pastor at the Atlanta church where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. preached, deleted a tweet on Easter Sunday after critics blasted him as a "heretic.”
"The meaning of Easter is more transcendent than the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Whether you are Christian or not, through a commitment to helping others we are able to save ourselves,” he said in the now-deleted tweet.

"US Hegemony?" Really? Surely they mean "Soviet hegemony," right? Or possibly "proxy war space between Western and Soviet interests?"


But then again, I suppose that "As it stands, this deal will reinstate the West Asian geopolitical landscape that was status quo prior to fall of the USSR, where the region is used as a catspaw for both Western and communist interests" would be a bit too honest for the CCP...

202 Doof,  "If the GOP were anywhere near as good as the Dems at rallying together and presenting a simple, unified message, this could be a lay-up for "our" side. The GOP should have chosen this hill - Voter ID / election integrity - as the one to fight for and perhaps die for. Instead, they have repeatedly chosen to NOT fight for election integrity -- and die anyway."
Main reason that GOPe is paralyzed is that the Mitch McConnells, McCarthys, Ryans, and Boehners, have sold out their voters under the aegis of corporations are our friendz as Ace puts it. 
When their corporate donors and corporation grifting is opposite of what the base wants, the GOPe is paralyzed.  They are too lazy for the most part to build up their own individual donor networks and have relied on leadership pacs to save their butts on election day.

214 I flew from NC to Cincy and back last week, my first flights since Covid. Had to wear a mask, and both planes were full to the point of offering vouchers if you'd give up your seat, but the airports were almost empty. Actually a more pleasant flying experience than most I've had. The only noticeable inconvenience (apart from the mask) was that only a few of the food/beverage concessions were open, thus creating long lines at the places that were operating.

227 ...VDH is impressive in his specialty as a military historian of ancient conflicts and a traditional classicist. As a political commentator on the present political mess, not so much in so far as ancient Greece did not share similar problems in governance. 
He is one example of an expert discussing matters using a knowledge base that may or may not be representative for the present case.  NR used him for years as a way to sell to the middlebrow audience about their academic chops along with Sowell.  
In reality, all of the interesting commentators at NR either retired or were forced out by Lowry as editor.  Buckley himself purged or fired a couple of commentators because they would not compromise their views (cough Sobran for example).

245 217 Martini Farmer,  McConnell is busy making sure that Senate Republicans get their snout into the massive spending bills floating out of Congress and arranging special amendments for their corporate friendz.
You cannot have a representative party of their voters when their fundraising is dominated by leftist corporations wanting special favors from government.  One of the reasons that Rand can stray off the reservation is that he has his own individual donor network, I think Cruz has the same.   MTG, apparently is also being smart that way.  Individual donors are vested in their politician's success, corporations just want a cheap whore for skimming fed dollars and stifling competitors as does the RNC.  You see the same thing at the state or even local level with bidness donors having outsized impact on political decisions.

263 Doof,  You asked a good question.  In the old political science research that I have seen, believe it or not, whether a contribution was received in the week of the vote, had a greater impact on a vote than the ideology of the congress critter. 
Donors have more access to candidates and officeholders than do the regular citizens.  If you notice, the strongest voices in the legislatures either come from very safe seats where their voters back them come heck or high water, or seats where the Congress critter has their own funding network and national identity.  
The weakest voices in the legislatures are those that depend on special interest campaign funding and the leadership pacs of Congress represent the worst in selling out to special interests as donors. Follow the money.

The new server is really nice, except for the part where it is currently not working at all.  It's three or four times faster than this one.  More memory, enterprise NVMe SSD, all that stuff.

Posted by: Doof at April 05, 2021 09:28 AM (mZUr4)

315 Is this a factor in the piece of the government corruption that I always find so surprising: how cheaply their bought? If timing is more important that ideology, that might imply that timing is *also* more important than quantity or size. I am always surprised by how cheaply these guys are bought. I don't have access, but I have enough money to buy a representative based on what I've seen. You can buy a representative for less than a decent new car, which never made any sense to me.

Posted by:Joe Mannix

Yes, it is accurate to say that.  The problem with donating all at once is that the representative can take your contributions for granted either close to the election or at the beginning of a term.  

Donating smaller amounts than the max or from different corporate executive donors or splitting your donations between primary and general elections can have an outsized effect on votes on legislation.  There is some reason to believe that these donations can also be tied to markups of legislation in committee.

I believe it. Falls are tough, especially on the elderly. Not only are bones more fragile, falling does something to you. I have seen people who fell and weren't injured but were shocked - disoriented, cold sweats, etc. - for a little while. That's hard on the body and if you're marginal, it can push you over the edge.

328 Hey, Pixy, if you're still around I have a comment on the new blog platform. I'll repost this to the Art Thread after the 100-comment rule expires.

Can you possibly adjust the field ordering without breaking things? If you're in the text box, you can't return to the Name/Mail/Web/Captcha fields with SHIFT+TAB. SHIFT+TAB returns to the comment URLs, and forward (regular) tabbing appears to jump to the top of the page. Being able to SHIFT+TAB back to the captcha field and tab down to the Preview or Post buttons would be a nice-to-have.

D-Day: "War's over, man. Wormer dropped the big one

Bluto: What? Over? Did you say 'over'? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans set fire to those servers in Utah? Hell no!...

It ain't over now, 'cause when the goin' gets tough, the tough get goin'. Who's with me? Let's go! Come on!...

Bluto (returning): What the f--k happened to the Delta I used to know? Where's the spirit? Where's the guts, huh? This could be the greatest night of our lives, but you're gonna let it be the worst. 'Ooh, we're afraid to go with you, Bluto, we might get in trouble.' (shouting) Well, just kiss my ass from now on! Not me! I'm not gonna take this. Wormer, he's a dead man! Marmalard, dead! Niedermeyer...

Otter: Dead! Bluto's right. Psychotic, but absolutely right. We gotta take these bastards. Now, we could fight 'em with conventional weapons. That could take years and cost millions of lives. No, in this case, I think we have to go all out. I think this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part.

We're just the guys to do it...LET'S DO IT!
