As Senator Palpatine says: “There is no civility, only politics. The bureaucrats are in charge now.”
Never let a good crisis go to waste:
This is also my judgement:
The Left is rabidly personally attacking Trump’s election lawyers:
From my own much more limited experience in political campaigns, this is all too true:
Highly paid cowards:
This decision is a violation of the US Constitution’s requirement that States guarantee a “republican form of government”:
The great PA election fraud of 1994:
The Rotten Peach –Georgia recount fraud:
Ballot signature verification fails in Las Vegas:
Clark County (Las Vegas) Nevada admits election problems requiring a new election in December:
Trump has fired top election security official Kris Krebs for making a grossly misleading statement regarding the 2020 general election security. While cybersecurity may or may not have been okay (HAMMER & SCORECARD?), security in every other respect was terrible, and Kris Krebs’ statement said that it was great. Do NOT confuse likely ‘Cratsymp Kris Krebs with Brian Krebs’ Krebsonsecurity website, which is truly professional, and a fine free computer security education.
Here is a fine article from the Mises Institute on the Deep State and its enablers:
Biden’s Propaganda Czar says, “Having once been almost a First Amendment absolutist, I have really moved my position on it, because I just think for practical reasons in society, we have to kind of rethink some of those things.”
WaPo’s latest big lie – an it is a real whopper:
Everybody knows the MSM are massively faking it:
A two week study on Marine recruits showed that an extreme lockdown and testing regimen was ineffective in preventing China Virus transmission:
If you have a smartphone, please try this out and report what happens:
An all too plausible and (almost) worst case scenario of the immediate future:
The Greatest Bubble Of All Time would have eventually burst even without the pin of the pandemic. Don’t expect even perfect vaccines to restore our economy which has been bloated with malinvestments due to two decades of Fed suppressed interest rates:
Yes, there really is a plague of zombies, their numbers are growing rapidly, and they will eat your assets if you don’t watch out:
The systemic cost of debt – which unlike some alleged systemic things, is very real – and will adversely affect future equity earnings and returns:
Those malinvestments need to be liquidated and the assetts reorganized in a more productive manner, but the Fed, the politicians, and the political doners will do anything to prevent that from happening. Hence here is where we find ourselves in November 2020:
Jim Quinn’s long term outlooks don’t consider the short term stimulating effects of another huge shot of meth – er, Fed liquidity stimulus. The below analysis attempts to do that. No one knows how long the bubble can continue to be inflated, and if Biden cheats to a win and it bursts on his watch, the ‘Crats are not going to be popular:
But the Fed doesn’t dare to cut back on money creation:
Which is why the Fed Barons are so furious that they can’t make the American people and government even more dependent on their money creation magic:
160 proof Russian gallows humor on America’s fraudulent election:
It’s been a very long time coming. I was working on these airborne high energy laser weapons way back in the 1970s, almost half a century ago. I’ve got some water cooled parts of one of these high energy chemical lasers in my Cold War tech collection; they were very special chemical reactors that burned high pressure fluorine with high pressure deuterium with a few trace gas additions – the exhaust would dissolve glass.
But generals tend to fight the last war – or even the war before that. Did you know that the US Army had a horse cavalry at the start of WWII? Yes, II not I. They even had a two-way horsey-talkey radio built into the middle of a cavalry lance, the BC-745 / SCR-511:
Really! The horsey-talkey was a big technological advance between cavalry unit battle communications over bugle signals. This two way voice radio had a range of a few miles. I’ve got a tech manual and some components from this system in my war tech collection. I had nothing to do with its design since it was designed before I was born.
The design was actually quite good, but the use application was about 50 years out of date. The Maxim machine gun had long made the horse calvary literally painfully obsolete, and the Civil War era Gatling gun had made that inevitable consequence clearly apparent.
