    Disordered thoughts on the National Cockatoo’s latest antics. One: The aghastment and horrilation about the terrible, appalling, shocking etc nature of gas warfare is nonsense. There is nothing unusually hideous about the use of toxic chemicals. Hideous, yes, but not unusually hideous. Boring old workaday artillery, that nobody criticizes, leaves children watching as mommy frantically...

    JJ, I understand your anger, but I would be happy if just the major perps would be convicted. Sunday the Austin American-Statesman ran a comprehensive story commemorating the entire incident as it unfolded. Basically it was your Federal government at its worst. Yesterday the same paper ran an article concerning the lessons learned from that debacle, many years too late and millions of dollars too short. In the article one of the FBI agents there, now retired indicated he believed Hillary was the one who actually gave the go ahead to set fire to the compound.

    I would like every one of the the war criminals, from top to bottom, hanged.

  • Wednesday’s criminal referral by 11 House Republicans of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as well as several former and serving top FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ) officials is a giant step toward a Constitutional crisis. Named in the referral to the DOJ for possible violations of federal law are: Clinton, former FBI Director...
  • @NoseytheDuke
    I'm on the other side of the planet but a friend in the Mid-West sent me this and I thought I'd ask if anyone else had seen it?

    Is there corruption in DC?

    From 2001 to 2005 there was an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation. A Grand Jury had been empaneled. The investigation was triggered by the pardon of Marc Rich ..

    Governments from around the world had donated to the “Charity”. Yet, from 2001 to 2003 none of those “Donations” to the Clinton Foundation were declared.

    Guess who took over this investigation in 2002? Bet you can’t guess. No other than James Comey.

    Guess who was transferred in to the Internal Revenue Service to run the Tax Exemption Branch of the IRS? Your friend and mine, Lois “Be on The Look Out” (BOLO) Lerner.

    It gets better, well not really, but this is all just a series of strange coincidences, right?

    Guess who ran the Tax Division inside the Department of Injustice from 2001 to 2005? No other than the Assistant Attorney General of the United States, Rod Rosenstein.

    Guess who was the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation during this time frame??? I know, it’s a miracle, just a coincidence, just an anomaly in statistics and chances: Robert Mueller.

    What do all four casting characters have in common? They all were briefed and were front line investigators into the Clinton Foundation Investigation.

    Now that’s just a coincidence, right? Ok, lets chalk the last one up to mere chance.

    Let’s fast forward to 2009. James Comey leaves the Justice Department to go and cash-in at Lockheed Martin.

    Hillary Clinton is running the State Department, on her own personal email server.

    The Uranium One “issue” comes to the attention of the Hillary. Like all good public servants do, you know looking out for America’s best interest, she decides to support the decision and approve the sale of 20% of US Uranium to no other than, the Russians.

    Now you would think that this is a fairly straight up deal, except it wasn’t, I question what did the People get out of it?? Oddly enough, prior to the sales approval, Bill Clinton goes to Moscow, gets paid 500K for a one-hour speech then meets with Vladimir Putin at his home for a few hours.

    Ok, no big deal right? Well, not so fast, the FBI had a mole inside this scheme.

    Guess who was the FBI Director during this time frame? Yep, Robert Mueller. He requested the State Department allow himself to deliver a Uranium Sample to Moscow in 2009, under the guise of a “sting” operation – (see leaked secret cable 09STATE38943).. while it is never clear if Mueller did deliver the sample, the “implication” is there ..

    Guess who was handling that case within the Justice Department out of the US Attorney’s Office in Maryland ?? No other than, Rod Rosenstein.

    Remember the “informant” inside the FBI ---- Guess what happened to the informant? Department of Justice placed a GAG order on him and threatened to lock him up if he spoke about the Uranium Deal. Personally, I have to question how does 20% of the most strategic asset of the United States of America end up in Russian hands??? The FBI had an informant, a mole providing inside information to the FBI on the criminal enterprise and NOTHING happens, except to the informant – Strange !!

    Guess what happened soon after the sale was approved? … 145 million dollars in “donations” made their way into the Clinton Foundation from entities directly connected to the Uranium One deal.

    Guess who was still at the Internal Revenue Service working the Charitable Division?

    No other than, Lois Lerner. Ok, that’s all just another series of coincidences, nothing to see here, right? Let’s fast forward to 2015.

    Due to a series of tragic events in Benghazi and after the nine “investigations” the House, Senate and at State Department, Trey Gowdy who was running the 10th investigation as Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi, discovers that the Hillary ran the State Department on an unclassified, unauthorized, outlaw personal email server.

    He also discovered that none of those emails had been turned over when she departed her “Public Service” as Secretary of State which was required by law.

    He also discovered that there was Top Secret information contained within her personally archived email. Sparing you the State Departments cover up, the nostrums they floated, the delay tactics that were employed and the outright lies that were spewed forth from the necks of the Kerry State Department, they did everything humanly possible to cover for Hillary.

    Guess who became FBI Director in 2013? Guess who secured 17 no bid contracts for his employer (Lockheed Martin) with the State Department and was rewarded with a six million dollar thank you present when he departed his employer. No other than James Comey. Folks if I did this when I worked for the government, I would have been locked up – The State Department didn’t even comply with the EEO and small business requirements the government places on all Request For Proposals (RFP) on contracts -- It amazes me how all those no-bids just went right through at State – simply amazing and no Inspector General investigation !!

    Next after leaving the private sector Comey is the FBI Director in charge of the “Clinton Email Investigation” after of course his FBI Investigates the Lois Lerner “Matter” at the Internal Revenue Service and exonerates her. Nope couldn’t find any crimes there. Nothing here to report --

    Then of all surprises, in April 2016, James Comey drafts an exoneration letter of Hillary Rodham Clinton, meanwhile the DOJ is handing out immunity deals like candy on Halloween.

    The DOJ didn’t even convene a Grand Jury. Like a lightning bolt of statistical impossibility, like a miracle from God himself, like the true “Gangsta” Homey is, James steps out into the cameras of an awaiting press conference on July the 8th of 2016 and exonerates the Hillary from any wrongdoing. As I’ve said many times, July 8, 2016 is the date that will live in infamy of the American Justice System ..

    Can you see the pattern?

    It goes on and on, Rosenstein becomes Asst. Attorney General, Comey gets fired based upon a letter by Rosenstein, Comey leaks government information to the press, Mueller is assigned to the Russian Investigation witch hunt by Rosenstein to provide cover for decades of malfeasance within the FBI and DOJ and the story continues.

    FISA Abuse, political espionage..... pick a crime, any crime, chances are...... this group and a few others did it.

    All the same players.

    All compromised and conflicted.

    It may be that Trump knows exactly what he is doing and has tricked the neo-cons/noe-liberals in to thinking he’s tough on Syria and Russia while behind their backs colluding with Putin to avoid ww3 and working to pull out of Syria regardless.

    The strike was really just a $150million advertising opportunity for Russian missil defense systems. The idiot general that announced 100% success should be fired as spokesperson for the pentagon-deep state. His ploy might have had a chance at being credible with a 93% success rate but 100% was never going to be credible!

    As for Bolton and Pompeo, keep your enemies close so you know what they are doing, tell them what they want to hear, let them imagine they are powerful and then take them down when they least expect it.

    Anything is possible here. Ya can’t just mate the king in a castled position. Ya have to pin, skewer, fork and threat to win. Bolton could be neocon prophylactic . He could be Sheldon brand ,TM oven mitts for red hot neocon buttons. Maybe he will toss Bolton after this at some point. I mean to do neocon stuff without a Bolton would tend to stick more to Trump. That would be really Machiavellian stuff….

    It would also be really kind of funny if Russia baited this for their arms industry. What will really be telling is their sales of these systems in the next few years. It was a weapons demo.

    As for domestically?

    scenario #1
    Our missiles are crap and need to be updated?
    They are? Prove it.
    Fire some missile at Syria and see what happens.

    scenario #2
    Sheldon has some cash.
    for what?
    You have to take in Bolton and take his advice.
    Trump does so with disinterest , an lobs a few..

    scenario #3

    Trump had a spicy meal last night….

    scenario #4
    He has eyes for Bibi and his playboy life style is just a front….or he is a regular old crypto-zionist.

  • This is one of unz.com’s more muddled efforts, like something from Mother Jones during the Reagan Administration. The Soviet Union blew up along with its efforts to install or support Marxist regimes in the Americas, so the author’s fever dreams about Trump–one year in office–funding “death squads” and masterminding coups are really dated. Central and South American countries are artificial, post-imperial constructs which historically lurch between clumsy pseudo-fascism and crude bolshevism. They probably always will. They’ve also always been easy marks for cheap credit and bad economics, long before Trump.

    The Monroe Doctrine is perfectly rational in the same way that Russia and China–the only other two countries that actually matter–seek their respective spheres of influence. It only seems less relevant since the old European powers were kicked out long ago and the Soviets are gone and no longer funding Trotskyism. I’m sure the Chinese have a lot of activity southward but it doesn’t seem problematic for the US so far.

    If anything, US national security and foreign policy institutions are too disengaged from Central and South America because they’re chasing dragons all over the Middle East.

    Mueller’s past is so laden with misfeasance and malfeasance that he should have been disbarred a few decades ago.
     
    Wrong. I will take the word of the judge who handled the case over Dershowitz, the legal clown, smears any day. As she says .... “You’re entitled to your own opinion but not your own facts.”


    A Harvard face-off in the court of public opinion

    By Mark Arsenault
    Globe Staff April 20, 2018

    Some spirited sniping between two Harvard Law School giants might be funny in some context, were the fate of Western democracy not potentially tottering in the balance.

    In an Ali-Frazier battle of legal minds, former federal judge Nancy Gertner this week smote celebrated legal scholar Alan Dershowitz in the opinion section of The New York Times, accusing him of falsely smearing Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election and whether or not the Trump campaign was in on it.

    Gertner and Dershowitz are longtime friends, but the highbrow exchange had an edge. Gertner, a senior lecturer at Harvard Law School, lumped Dershowitz, the loquacious Harvard law professor emeritus, in the same paragraph with partisan mouthpieces Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity.


    Dershowitz, in his defense, suggests Gertner is in the throes of an anti-Trump fever, clouding her judgment.


    Their argument is over Mueller’s role as a federal prosecutor in Boston, where he served in several positions from 1982 to 1988, including acting US attorney.

    The dispute is hardly academic. It involves the Russian investigation and the ongoing probe into President Trump’s associates, which could potentially upend the Trump presidency, as well as the gathering threat of a constitutional crisis if Trump orchestrates Mueller’s removal and shuts down the investigation.

    Trump’s defenders have alleged that Mueller looked the other way and allowed four innocent men to languish in prison to protect the cover of an FBI informant, in a notorious case from the era of the agency’s corrupt relationship with mobster James “Whitey” Bulger.

    The Globe reported last week that there is no evidence linking Mueller to the case of the men wrongly imprisoned.


    Gertner’s column quotes Dershowitz on a recent New York radio show calling Mueller “the guy who kept four innocent people in prison for many years.” Though Gertner didn’t quote it, Dershowitz went on to say, “Those of us in Boston don’t have such a high regard for Mueller because we remember that story.”

    “There is no evidence that the assertion is true,” Gertner wrote, explaining that as a judge she presided over a federal lawsuit against the government related to the case, ultimately awarding the plaintiffs more than $100 million.

    In the “voluminous evidence” gathered for the trial — all of which Gertner read, she said — Mueller was never mentioned. Nor was he mentioned in the submissions of the plaintiff’s lead lawyer, nor in “Black Mass,” a book about Bulger and the FBI by former Globe reporters, Gertner wrote.

    In a phone interview, Gertner quoted the old chestnut, “You’re entitled to your own opinion but not your own facts.”

    Dershowitz, she said, asserted something that was untrue, and — as someone with vast experience on the topic — Gertner felt it was her responsibility to correct the record

    I’m on the other side of the planet but a friend in the Mid-West sent me this and I thought I’d ask if anyone else had seen it?

    Is there corruption in DC?

    From 2001 to 2005 there was an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation. A Grand Jury had been empaneled. The investigation was triggered by the pardon of Marc Rich ..

    Governments from around the world had donated to the “Charity”. Yet, from 2001 to 2003 none of those “Donations” to the Clinton Foundation were declared.

    Guess who took over this investigation in 2002? Bet you can’t guess. No other than James Comey.

    [MORE]

    Guess who was transferred in to the Internal Revenue Service to run the Tax Exemption Branch of the IRS? Your friend and mine, Lois “Be on The Look Out” (BOLO) Lerner.

    It gets better, well not really, but this is all just a series of strange coincidences, right?

    Guess who ran the Tax Division inside the Department of Injustice from 2001 to 2005? No other than the Assistant Attorney General of the United States, Rod Rosenstein.

    Guess who was the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation during this time frame??? I know, it’s a miracle, just a coincidence, just an anomaly in statistics and chances: Robert Mueller.

    What do all four casting characters have in common? They all were briefed and were front line investigators into the Clinton Foundation Investigation.

    Now that’s just a coincidence, right? Ok, lets chalk the last one up to mere chance.

    Let’s fast forward to 2009. James Comey leaves the Justice Department to go and cash-in at Lockheed Martin.

    Hillary Clinton is running the State Department, on her own personal email server.

    The Uranium One “issue” comes to the attention of the Hillary. Like all good public servants do, you know looking out for America’s best interest, she decides to support the decision and approve the sale of 20% of US Uranium to no other than, the Russians.

    Now you would think that this is a fairly straight up deal, except it wasn’t, I question what did the People get out of it?? Oddly enough, prior to the sales approval, Bill Clinton goes to Moscow, gets paid 500K for a one-hour speech then meets with Vladimir Putin at his home for a few hours.

    Ok, no big deal right? Well, not so fast, the FBI had a mole inside this scheme.

    Guess who was the FBI Director during this time frame? Yep, Robert Mueller. He requested the State Department allow himself to deliver a Uranium Sample to Moscow in 2009, under the guise of a “sting” operation – (see leaked secret cable 09STATE38943).. while it is never clear if Mueller did deliver the sample, the “implication” is there ..

    Guess who was handling that case within the Justice Department out of the US Attorney’s Office in Maryland ?? No other than, Rod Rosenstein.

    Remember the “informant” inside the FBI —- Guess what happened to the informant? Department of Justice placed a GAG order on him and threatened to lock him up if he spoke about the Uranium Deal. Personally, I have to question how does 20% of the most strategic asset of the United States of America end up in Russian hands??? The FBI had an informant, a mole providing inside information to the FBI on the criminal enterprise and NOTHING happens, except to the informant – Strange !!

    Guess what happened soon after the sale was approved? … 145 million dollars in “donations” made their way into the Clinton Foundation from entities directly connected to the Uranium One deal.

    Guess who was still at the Internal Revenue Service working the Charitable Division?

    No other than, Lois Lerner. Ok, that’s all just another series of coincidences, nothing to see here, right? Let’s fast forward to 2015.

    Due to a series of tragic events in Benghazi and after the nine “investigations” the House, Senate and at State Department, Trey Gowdy who was running the 10th investigation as Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi, discovers that the Hillary ran the State Department on an unclassified, unauthorized, outlaw personal email server.

    He also discovered that none of those emails had been turned over when she departed her “Public Service” as Secretary of State which was required by law.

    He also discovered that there was Top Secret information contained within her personally archived email. Sparing you the State Departments cover up, the nostrums they floated, the delay tactics that were employed and the outright lies that were spewed forth from the necks of the Kerry State Department, they did everything humanly possible to cover for Hillary.

    Guess who became FBI Director in 2013? Guess who secured 17 no bid contracts for his employer (Lockheed Martin) with the State Department and was rewarded with a six million dollar thank you present when he departed his employer. No other than James Comey. Folks if I did this when I worked for the government, I would have been locked up – The State Department didn’t even comply with the EEO and small business requirements the government places on all Request For Proposals (RFP) on contracts — It amazes me how all those no-bids just went right through at State – simply amazing and no Inspector General investigation !!

    Next after leaving the private sector Comey is the FBI Director in charge of the “Clinton Email Investigation” after of course his FBI Investigates the Lois Lerner “Matter” at the Internal Revenue Service and exonerates her. Nope couldn’t find any crimes there. Nothing here to report –

    Then of all surprises, in April 2016, James Comey drafts an exoneration letter of Hillary Rodham Clinton, meanwhile the DOJ is handing out immunity deals like candy on Halloween.

    The DOJ didn’t even convene a Grand Jury. Like a lightning bolt of statistical impossibility, like a miracle from God himself, like the true “Gangsta” Homey is, James steps out into the cameras of an awaiting press conference on July the 8th of 2016 and exonerates the Hillary from any wrongdoing. As I’ve said many times, July 8, 2016 is the date that will live in infamy of the American Justice System ..

    Can you see the pattern?

    It goes on and on, Rosenstein becomes Asst. Attorney General, Comey gets fired based upon a letter by Rosenstein, Comey leaks government information to the press, Mueller is assigned to the Russian Investigation witch hunt by Rosenstein to provide cover for decades of malfeasance within the FBI and DOJ and the story continues.

    FISA Abuse, political espionage….. pick a crime, any crime, chances are…… this group and a few others did it.

    All the same players.

    All compromised and conflicted.

    All working fervently to NOT go to jail themselves.

    All connected in one way or another to the Clinton’s.

    They are like battery acid, they corrode and corrupt everything they touch.

    How many lives have the Clinton’s destroyed?

    As of this writing, the Clinton Foundation, in its 20+ years of operation of being the largest International Charity Fraud in the history of mankind, has never been audited by the Internal Revenue Service.

    Let us not forget that Comey’s brother works for DLA Piper, the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes.

    That's all true, especially the last bit. But give the Orange One some credit: he was a wrecking ball to the stagnant, hideous Clinton and Bush dynasties. He has also driven the DC establishment and media insane. Pure schadenfreude.

    Yup, regardless of what Trump does or doesn’t do, he has completely outed the globalist cabal and uniparty system.

    To be honest I’m not sure that he even knew why he had such a following. He does not seem like the most thoughtful man. He saw the crowds with thousands of Americans cheering his message, so he kept repeating it. He might not have seen himself in the same way that we “conspiracy theorists” did. So he’s confused and doesn’t see how he’s letting us down.

    Trump did the first bit, and quite frankly it’s up to the people whether or not our society will survive. Trump was a great push through the barriers, and it’s up to us to continue.

    Ronald, Christ stated plainly that He has no concord with Belial. That “His”light has no concord with darkness.

    That being said- what makes you think that Constantine’s Roman Empire synthesis of paganism/Catholicism is actually representative of Christianity? It’s architectural and musical glories notwithstanding- it is plainly unscriptural!
    Transubstantiation, Mariology, unmarried priests are an elaborate man made labyrinth of “myths.”

    However, the historical Jesus is real. You and l can only learn about Him through Gods word. It is the armor of God and the sword of His spirit. It is sharper than a two-edged sword and able to accomplish what God wants it to.

    In this day and age, when white people in particular have traded in their identity as Christian absolute believers in an un-changing Godhead; in exchange for the ever shifting alliances of politics- it is no wonder that the moral relativistic center cannot hold and an anomic, drugged society suffers from ever frequent outbursts of paroxysms of rage-in the form of school shootings, corruption in high places and merciless fraudulent wars for lucre.

    The choice is stark:
    The Absolute unchanging truth, transcendent- a free gift received by grace and faith.

    Or...

    Materialism, hedonism, Nature red in tooth and claw, rationalized by moral relativity.

    Remember, Heaven is heirarchical and exclusive......Hell is egalitarian and has open boarders!

    So who will you choose to serve:

    Jesus -who went to the cruel cross WILLINGLY ( l am a Baptist- we yell..lol)
    Or...

    Mammon...and serve at the alter of the
    ALMIGHTY DOLLAR.

    History is a simple story- for simple stupid mankind.
    And......man’s passions never change. There’s no need for a generational update to the “plot”

    Gods word says mankind can be summed-up with one word: VANITY!

    But He has also provided the antidote:

    Redemption.

They did not impede the Syrian Army's ongoing military offensive...

    It may be that Trump knows exactly what he is doing and has tricked the neo-cons/noe-liberals in to thinking he’s tough on Syria and Russia while behind their backs colluding with Putin to avoid ww3 and working to pull out of Syria regardless.

    The strike was really just a $150million advertising opportunity for Russian missil defense systems. The idiot general that announced 100% success should be fired as spokesperson for the pentagon-deep state. His ploy might have had a chance at being credible with a 93% success rate but 100% was never going to be credible!

    As for Bolton and Pompeo, keep your enemies close so you know what they are doing, tell them what they want to hear, let them imagine they are powerful and then take them down when they least expect it.

He could be Sheldon brand ,TM oven mitts for red hot neocon buttons. Maybe he will toss Bolton after this at some point. I mean to do neocon stuff without a Bolton would tend to stick more to Trump. That would be really Machiavellian stuff....

    It would also be really kind of funny if Russia baited this for their arms industry. What will really be telling is their sales of these systems in the next few years. It was a weapons demo.

    As for domestically?

    scenario #1
    Our missiles are crap and need to be updated?
    They are? Prove it.
    Fire some missile at Syria and see what happens.

    scenario #2
    Sheldon has some cash.
    for what?
    You have to take in Bolton and take his advice.
    Trump does so with disinterest , an lobs a few..

    scenario #3

    Trump had a spicy meal last night....

    scenario #4
    He has eyes for Bibi and his playboy life style is just a front....or he is a regular old crypto-zionist.


    I mean what is to make of lobbing a few in half hearted , neocon fashion?

    Am I a Christian? Well, no. I had some exposure to Christianity but it never took hold. On the other hand, I do believe there was a historical Jesus that was a remarkable man, but there is a world (or universe) of difference between the man and the mythology. Here's some of my thoughts on the matter:

    https://ronaldthomaswest.com/2013/04/11/celebrating-the-anti-christ/

    ^ It doesn't necessarily go where the title might suggest (for many)

    Ronald, Christ stated plainly that He has no concord with Belial. That “His”light has no concord with darkness.

    That being said- what makes you think that Constantine’s Roman Empire synthesis of paganism/Catholicism is actually representative of Christianity? It’s architectural and musical glories notwithstanding- it is plainly unscriptural!
    Transubstantiation, Mariology, unmarried priests are an elaborate man made labyrinth of “myths.”

    However, the historical Jesus is real. You and l can only learn about Him through Gods word. It is the armor of God and the sword of His spirit. It is sharper than a two-edged sword and able to accomplish what God wants it to.

    In this day and age, when white people in particular have traded in their identity as Christian absolute believers in an un-changing Godhead; in exchange for the ever shifting alliances of politics- it is no wonder that the moral relativistic center cannot hold and an anomic, drugged society suffers from ever frequent outbursts of paroxysms of rage-in the form of school shootings, corruption in high places and merciless fraudulent wars for lucre.

    The choice is stark:
    The Absolute unchanging truth, transcendent- a free gift received by grace and faith.

    Or…

    Materialism, hedonism, Nature red in tooth and claw, rationalized by moral relativity.

    Remember, Heaven is heirarchical and exclusive……Hell is egalitarian and has open boarders!

    So who will you choose to serve:

    Jesus -who went to the cruel cross WILLINGLY ( l am a Baptist- we yell..lol)
    Or…

    Mammon…and serve at the alter of the
    ALMIGHTY DOLLAR.

    History is a simple story- for simple stupid mankind.
    And……man’s passions never change. There’s no need for a generational update to the “plot”

    Gods word says mankind can be summed-up with one word: VANITY!

    But He has also provided the antidote:

    Redemption.

    Ronald Thomas West:

    Ye must be born again, proclaims Jesus.

    He is ever eager to receive you!

    Have a wonderful day.

    I am left to wonder how angular momentum has nothing to do with inertia myself?
     
    I spent quite a bit of time explaining the relationship between momentum and inertia did I not...?

    ...including defining mathematically both linear and rotational momentum and how they relate to inertia...

    Maybe you missed all that while scanning the Bible Gateway site...?

    Inertia is an easy concept to grasp...as is the way it relates to momentum...

    An object in motion...whether translating in a straight line...or rotating about an axis will have momentum...depending on its mass and velocity if translating...and its moment of inertia and angular velocity if rotating...

    This quantity of momentum is what gives the moving object inertia...ie the propensity to continue its motion and to resist outside forces acting on it...

    The way this applies to a spinning wheel [gyroscope] is that it is the inertia that is the thing doing the resisting...

    That is all we need to understand if we are talking about gyroscopes because the key thing here is that they are designed to keep spinning in their orientation and not move...

    In other words...they are a reference frame...one for each axis of three dimensional space...or more precisely the three axes of the rigid body flight vehicle...

    The asswipe 'Turdeye 'jumped in like a monkey waving a banana because he doesn't understand that conservation of momentum is not relevant to the gyroscope in a nav system...UNLESS a torque is applied to that gyro's axis of rotation...

    But this does not happen because the gyro is on gimbals that isolate it from outside torques...

    The whole idea of the gyro as a spatial and axial reference is for it to remain always in its orientation...

    You seem to have caught on to this already in your previous comment addressed to Turdeye...

    '...I think what you mean is a gyroscope responds to torque forces when pulling on the string on my childhood toy, but that is just to create the gyroscopic effect. The inertia of the gyro is not supposed to have forces acting on it after creating the gyroscopic effect. That is the point of them. Its an on board independent reference is it not...'
     

    Bingo...

    So it is a matter of where do we apply these ideas of 'inertia' and 'conservation of momentum'...?

    That's what this is all about...science is precise and the language is nuanced...

    Also the math is meant to be applied to specific problems...

    For instance...conservation of linear momentum is used in collisions...such as car collisions...where we apply the math to determine what happened AFTER a collision...

    There is no need to think about conservation of momentum while driving along...it is enough to say the moving body has inertia...

    The same in rotational dynamics...the gyroscope is specifically designed to NOT have any forces or torques acting on it...

    But a spinning helicopter rotor is a different matter...it is also a large gyroscope but it has all kinds of outside torques and forces acting on it...

    Hence...we need to now apply the math of conservation of momentum in order to solve these questions...

    Kapish...?

    I hope this makes sense...you seem like exactly the kind of reader that I had in mind when I responded to the nitwit Turdeye...

    PS...I wish you hadn't given him that link to the equations for moment of inertia...now he'll be able to solve the problem I gave him that he otherwise never would have...

    In case it was not clear, I gathered you were making the points you were trying to make while they were fishing for weakness because they really don’t like you. I gave the reasons why I have come to believe this in a few posts.

    Basically in the joust the usual aggressor (the West) was reluctant to engage because of possible consequences and in so doing loses the war, because its specter of invincibility had been questioned, by the opposition and by itself. The article reflects on the 1480 standoff on the Ugra River between Russian forces and Tatar-Mongol forces, where both sides glared at each other for 2 weeks but didn’t engage because of possible consequences.

    If I have it right that is an intentional misdirection from Jesus' wise words.

    My take would be cannibalism and torture are at odds with everything he’d actually taught. When Constantine turned Christianity into the Roman empire’s state religion, his political appointments (bishops) saw that St Paul’s ideas displaced the historical Jesus whose authentic teachings were added to, perverted and finally, buried. Christianity as we mostly know it today is a Roman State legacy having little to do with the historical Jesus. That’s how I see it.

    "So for the benefit of readers on this thread"

    So you are not accused of making an assumption...

    "Saying that it is not inertia, but angular momentum that keeps the spinning wheel from resisting a change in its axis is nonsensical…"

    Again I used the principle of fundamentals.

    I am left to wonder how angular momentum has nothing to do with inertia myself?

    http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/mi.html#mi

    "Moment of inertia"

    I am an amoral and irreligious, but I still like this quote:


    18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, ‘He has a demon.’ 19 The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Look, a glutton and a winebibber, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ But wisdom is justified by her children.”

    I notice when I form arguments based upon my own actions I am accused as having no authority by the peanut galleries . Then after citing my sources I am accused for lacking my own content.

    Anyway I can appreciate the length of your threads are difficult to defend and it creates many snipping opportunities.

    Anyway my reply is state they you have certainly convinced my that the lay public assumes much about cruse missiles while being in error.

    I am left to wonder how angular momentum has nothing to do with inertia myself?

  • @FB
    You really have a lot of nerve for a RETARD...

    Let's review here...

    First you stated that gyros don't run on the principle of inertia...which is complete bullshit...it is a spinning wheel's inertia...rotational inertia to be specific...that keeps a gyro from resisting a change of direction to its spinning axis...

    Saying that it is not inertia, but angular momentum that keeps the spinning wheel from resisting a change in its axis is nonsensical...

    You obviously do not understand the relationship between inertia and angular momentum...

    So for the benefit of readers on this thread...[not for an obvious idiot like you who is incapable of learning]...I will explain the physics involved...

    Let's first start by defining inertia and then momentum...and what these two terms actually mean and how they are related...


    '...Inertia is the resistance of any physical object to any change in its state of motion. This includes changes to the object's speed, direction, or state of rest...'
     
    Newton articulated inertia thus...

    '...The vis insita, or innate force of matter, is a power of resisting by which every body, as much as in it lies, endeavours to preserve its present state, whether it be of rest or of moving uniformly forward in a straight line...'
     
    This is known as the First Law of Motion...

    Newton was talking about motion in a straight line here...but the same property of inertia applies to a rotating object...ie its rotational inertia is what 'endeavours to preserve its present state'...in the words of the Great Man himself...


    '...Another form of inertia is rotational inertia (→ moment of inertia), the property that a rotating rigid body maintains its state of uniform rotational motion...'
     
    Now let's precisely define momentum...both linear and rotational...so that we may see how the property of inertia...ie a body's tendency to keep [or conserve] its original state of motion...arises out of momentum...

    Linear momentum [or translational momentum] is simply mass x velocity...so a person of 100 kg running at 5 meters per second will have a momentum of 500 kg*m/s...


    https://s20.postimg.cc/u6ptpng65/Linear_Momentum.jpg


    --Serway, Physics for Scientists and Engineers, page 248...

    Or From a similar text by Knight...page 242...


    https://s20.postimg.cc/xrlp8qn8t/Linear_Momentum_Knight.jpg

    p being momentum...and mass being m...v being velocity...


    For those who do not have this book or similar...wikipedia entry on momentum is adequate to understanding this...

    Let us consider now that runner above and imagine that he is a football player...another player runs into him and shoves him off his course and out of bounds...

    What has happened here is that the inertia of the runner was disturbed by the force of the collision with another player...

    If that runner was a truck that had a mass of 10,000 kg instead of 100...obviously that other player running into such a truck would not be able to shove the truck aside...

    That is due to the inertia of that moving truck...

    It is the same thing with a rotating object which has inertia also...and it is the inertia that resists force that is applied to it...

    So we see that inertia is a function of momentum...ie the greater the momentum the more inertia the moving object possesses...not the other way around...


    It is the inertia that is the property that resists any force applied to it...

     

    Now let's look at rotational [or angular] momentum...


    https://s20.postimg.cc/e23ewnab1/Angular_Momentum_Serway.jpg


    We see here that angular momentum is defined as...


    L = I x ώ
     
    Where L is the angular momentum...I is the moment of inertia...and ώ is the angular velocity...

    We compare this equation to linear momentum where P = m x v

    P being momentum...m being mass...and v being linear velocity...

    We notice that these two equations are the same except that there is no mass in the angular momentum equation...

    The mass is replaced by the moment of inertia...I...


    '...Notice that moment of inertia is the rotational equivalent of mass...'
     
    --Knight, page 346...[Knight's emphasis not mine]

    Knight goes on to articulate the nuances of this distinction...


    '...Recall that the quantity we call mass was actually defined as the inertial mass. Objects with larger mass have a larger inertia, meaning that they're harder to accelerate. Similarly, an object with a larger moment of inertia is harder to rotate. The fact that moment of inertia retains the word "inertia' reminds us of this...'
     
    --Knight, page 346-7 [all emphasis by Knight]

    So like I already pointed out to you...you are only causing confusion with your stupidity...

    The reason that a spinning gyro...or any rotating object has resistance to being deflected off its axis of rotation is due to its inertia...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vqHXFKJddfM

    As for your other gibberish about gyroscopes in inertial nav systems...you squawked this...


    '...You are wrong in attributing positioning to the gyroscope. That role is filled by the accelerometers...'
     
    What a complete and utter asswipe you are...

    What does that piece of gibberish even mean...?

    Where did I ever 'attribute' positioning [whatever the hell that is supposed to mean] to gyroscopes...?

    Please look at my comment #102...

    I clearly explained how inertial nav systems are able to use gyroscopes to determine their geographical position...


    '...Knowing the exact geographic coordinates from where you started the flight…the inertial system can thus calculate your position at any time during the flight based on the accelerations of the vehicle that have occurred since moment one…'
     
    And...

    '...A computer is used to do the math…namely two integrations [calculus] which are required to take the gyro sensor inputs and convert them to a position fix…'

     

    What an idiot you are...what do you think a 'sensor' means...?

    How any person with even a retarded tiny brain could come away with that from my clear and precise explanation is beyond comprehension...

    And let's look at what you just shat out here...


    '...The gyroscope does not respond to changes in X, Y, or Z positioning or velocity. It responds to torque forces that perturb its rotational axis, i.e. angular momentum...'
     
    What an utter idiot...you think you can bullshit here because you assume some of the readers may not understand your meaningless bird squawks...

    Again...my explanation of how an inertial nav system works on the basis of gyros is 100 percent correct...you are either completely retarded or cannot read or comprehend...

    I think it is a combination of both...as you are unable to express yourself in a precise way that is required of the subject matter...

    No...the gyroscope does not 'respond to torque forces'...because there are none acting on it you idiot...the gyroscope is mounted in a gimbal which isolates it from the accelerations experienced by the craft...and allows it to remain in its orientation...ie its inertial frame of reference you utter idiot...


    '... I am quite acquainted with Newtonian physics after completing a year at university level (straight-A in case you were wondering) plus geophysics...'
     
    Wow...a whole year of undergrad physics...that's impressive...[yet you showed you are not even able to solve a triangle on the other thread...]

    So since you have such a strong 'acquaintance' with physics and gyroscopes...and even aircraft autopilot systems and inertial nav systems...then you should not have any problem in solving for the moment of inertia of a disk on an axis...


    https://s20.postimg.cc/dj2x18qbh/Disk_Moment_of_Inertia.jpg


    Good luck moron...

    “So for the benefit of readers on this thread”

    So you are not accused of making an assumption…

    “Saying that it is not inertia, but angular momentum that keeps the spinning wheel from resisting a change in its axis is nonsensical…”

    Again I used the principle of fundamentals.

    I am left to wonder how angular momentum has nothing to do with inertia myself?

    http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/mi.html#mi

    “Moment of inertia”

    I am an amoral and irreligious, but I still like this quote:

    18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, ‘He has a demon.’ 19 The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Look, a glutton and a winebibber, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ But wisdom is justified by her children.”

    I notice when I form arguments based upon my own actions I am accused as having no authority by the peanut galleries . Then after citing my sources I am accused for lacking my own content.

    Anyway I can appreciate the length of your threads are difficult to defend and it creates many snipping opportunities.

    I spent quite a bit of time explaining the relationship between momentum and inertia did I not...?

    ...including defining mathematically both linear and rotational momentum and how they relate to inertia...

    Maybe you missed all that while scanning the Bible Gateway site...?

    Inertia is an easy concept to grasp...as is the way it relates to momentum...

    An object in motion...whether translating in a straight line...or rotating about an axis will have momentum...depending on its mass and velocity if translating...and its moment of inertia and angular velocity if rotating...

    This quantity of momentum is what gives the moving object inertia...ie the propensity to continue its motion and to resist outside forces acting on it...

    The way this applies to a spinning wheel [gyroscope] is that it is the inertia that is the thing doing the resisting...

    That is all we need to understand if we are talking about gyroscopes because the key thing here is that they are designed to keep spinning in their orientation and not move...

    In other words...they are a reference frame...one for each axis of three dimensional space...or more precisely the three axes of the rigid body flight vehicle...

    The asswipe 'Turdeye 'jumped in like a monkey waving a banana because he doesn't understand that conservation of momentum is not relevant to the gyroscope in a nav system...UNLESS a torque is applied to that gyro's axis of rotation...

    But this does not happen because the gyro is on gimbals that isolate it from outside torques...

    The whole idea of the gyro as a spatial and axial reference is for it to remain always in its orientation...

    You seem to have caught on to this already in your previous comment addressed to Turdeye...

    '...I think what you mean is a gyroscope responds to torque forces when pulling on the string on my childhood toy, but that is just to create the gyroscopic effect. The inertia of the gyro is not supposed to have forces acting on it after creating the gyroscopic effect. That is the point of them. Its an on board independent reference is it not...'
     

    Bingo...

    So it is a matter of where do we apply these ideas of 'inertia' and 'conservation of momentum'...?

    That's what this is all about...science is precise and the language is nuanced...

    Also the math is meant to be applied to specific problems...

    For instance...conservation of linear momentum is used in collisions...such as car collisions...where we apply the math to determine what happened AFTER a collision...

    There is no need to think about conservation of momentum while driving along...it is enough to say the moving body has inertia...

    The same in rotational dynamics...the gyroscope is specifically designed to NOT have any forces or torques acting on it...

    But a spinning helicopter rotor is a different matter...it is also a large gyroscope but it has all kinds of outside torques and forces acting on it...

    Hence...we need to now apply the math of conservation of momentum in order to solve these questions...

    Kapish...?

    I hope this makes sense...you seem like exactly the kind of reader that I had in mind when I responded to the nitwit Turdeye...

    PS...I wish you hadn't given him that link to the equations for moment of inertia...now he'll be able to solve the problem I gave him that he otherwise never would have...

    Yup, regardless of what Trump does or doesn't do, he has completely outed the globalist cabal and uniparty system.

    To be honest I'm not sure that he even knew why he had such a following. He does not seem like the most thoughtful man. He saw the crowds with thousands of Americans cheering his message, so he kept repeating it. He might not have seen himself in the same way that we "conspiracy theorists" did. So he's confused and doesn't see how he's letting us down.

    Trump did the first bit, and quite frankly it's up to the people whether or not our society will survive. Trump was a great push through the barriers, and it's up to us to continue.

    Well, I do live in TN. Lived in PA and AZ before that. Despite sustained efforts of the US Congress, the US is still the best place to do science. Although things gradually change. Twenty years ago if you tell a Chinese post-doc that you will send him/her back to China, it was a serious threat. Now Chinese post-docs return voluntarily in droves. What’s more, China is actively recruiting non-Chinese scientists. Apparently, Chinese authorities realized that they had a big problem: too many people in research in China sincerely believed that science is about pleasing the boss. Now they want real science, which is about discovering the truth regardless of boss’ pet theories. In fact, I am looking into opportunities in China, as Russia does not fund science, unfortunately.
    I agree that Russian and Chinese leadership shows super-human patience, like nurses in the lunatic asylum. I also agree that it seems likely that in the end they would have no choice but forcibly restrain the lunatic, the US. Now Russia and China will certainly be on the same side in this confrontation. In my estimation, the US and all its sidekicks stand no chance, even against Russia or China separately, let alone against both of them together. This might end in WWIII, which few humans will survive. The people in Russia and China have a better chance, as they are less spoiled by comfortable living and know better where the food comes from before it hits supermarket shelves.
    On the one hand, it is good that a lot of Chinese tourists go to Russia and get acquainted with Russian culture. On the other hand, the number of Chinese tourists can be overwhelming. I remember visiting the Great Wall and Forbidden City in Beijing: it was hard to see much because of hordes of tourists. BTW, I understand why Chinese often travel in large groups abroad – language is likely an issue. But why do Chinese tourists travel in large groups inside China? That puzzled me.
    BTW, you “nome de guerre” is not quite appropriate: your comments tend to be pretty intelligent.

    Why thank you for your kind compliments, sir! It is always a great pleasure to detect the presence of some kindred spirits! With regard to good old USA, I don’t know if the following metaphor would be at all appropriate? Imagine being married to someone for close to 30 years, with things sliding over the years gradually and then conclusively towards the direction of, say, an unhappy marriage beyond salvage. So in the bar you drink with a buddy and you are asked to give some essential summary of what you might have perceived to be the ex-wife’s main character flaws, granted that that she might still be called, on some level, a good person. What do say about that, in such a situation? Well, if I were in such a place, I’d shake my head, smile helplessly, and suggest that we change the subject.

    Why do I think that USA has a pretty high likelihood of sleepwalking into some suicidal self incurred massive catastrophe some where during the coming years? Well, I feel like telling my friend that we just drink together, and change the subject.

    Sorry chump, you're the one with your ignorance flapping in the breeze. I am quite acquainted with Newtonian physics after completing a year at university level (straight-A in case you were wondering) plus geophysics. You are wrong in attributing positioning to the gyroscope. That role is filled by the accelerometers, with horizontal, vertical, and lateral velocity being the integrals of their X ,Y, and Z inputs. The gyroscope does not respond to changes in X, Y, or Z positioning or velocity. It responds to torque forces that perturb its rotational axis, i.e. angular momentum. Most gyroscopic systems use feedback from the gimball suspension to correct orientation of the craft, either as a pilot aid (artificial horizon) or automated system (autopilot, etc). The WWII gyroscopic gun sights were examples of mechanical computers that used the the rate of perturbation for lead correction. In the case of gyroscopic stabilization (distinct from autopilot), the feedback is, like the old gun sights, proportional to the rate of perturbation to counteract the inertia of the craft during such perturbations.

    Copying information off the web is one thing and understanding it is another, as you should have learned by now. You are a blowhard with an inflated notion of his understanding of physics.

    OK I am not following. Granted I am not in my field of expertise. I am trying to see which of you has any credibility.

    Your fist comment appeared to be correcting FB by correcting a cat comment by saying its a Russian Blue. All motion is going to axiomatically follow laws of physics involving motion and you said its “wrong”.??? It would seem that inertia does apply to gyroscopes and it could only be criticized for a lack of precision , if applicable.

    Now this one you say ” gyroscope does not respond to changes in X, Y, or Z positioning”

    Well no , not relative to an independent object. That is the idea of them.

    “It responds to torque forces that perturb its rotational axis, i.e. angular momentum”

    I think what you mean is a gyroscope responds to torque forces when pulling on the string on my childhood toy, but that is just to create the gyroscopic effect. The inertia of the gyro is not supposed to have forces acting on it after creating the gyroscopic effect. That is the point of them. Its an on board independent reference is it not.

    This does not make FB wrong about gyroscopes by changing the context of what is being discussed.

    Sorry chump, you're the one with your ignorance flapping in the breeze. I am quite acquainted with Newtonian physics after completing a year at university level (straight-A in case you were wondering) plus geophysics. You are wrong in attributing positioning to the gyroscope. That role is filled by the accelerometers, with horizontal, vertical, and lateral velocity being the integrals of their X ,Y, and Z inputs. The gyroscope does not respond to changes in X, Y, or Z positioning or velocity. It responds to torque forces that perturb its rotational axis, i.e. angular momentum. Most gyroscopic systems use feedback from the gimball suspension to correct orientation of the craft, either as a pilot aid (artificial horizon) or automated system (autopilot, etc). The WWII gyroscopic gun sights were examples of mechanical computers that used the the rate of perturbation for lead correction. In the case of gyroscopic stabilization (distinct from autopilot), the feedback is, like the old gun sights, proportional to the rate of perturbation to counteract the inertia of the craft during such perturbations.

    Copying information off the web is one thing and understanding it is another, as you should have learned by now. You are a blowhard with an inflated notion of his understanding of physics.

    You really have a lot of nerve for a RETARD…

    Let’s review here…

    First you stated that gyros don’t run on the principle of inertia…which is complete bullshit…it is a spinning wheel’s inertia…rotational inertia to be specific…that keeps a gyro from resisting a change of direction to its spinning axis…

    Saying that it is not inertia, but angular momentum that keeps the spinning wheel from resisting a change in its axis is nonsensical…

    You obviously do not understand the relationship between inertia and angular momentum…

    So for the benefit of readers on this thread…[not for an obvious idiot like you who is incapable of learning]…I will explain the physics involved…

    Let’s first start by defining inertia and then momentum…and what these two terms actually mean and how they are related…

    ‘…Inertia is the resistance of any physical object to any change in its state of motion. This includes changes to the object’s speed, direction, or state of rest…’

    Newton articulated inertia thus…

    ‘…The vis insita, or innate force of matter, is a power of resisting by which every body, as much as in it lies, endeavours to preserve its present state, whether it be of rest or of moving uniformly forward in a straight line…’

    This is known as the First Law of Motion…

    Newton was talking about motion in a straight line here…but the same property of inertia applies to a rotating object…ie its rotational inertia is what ‘endeavours to preserve its present state’…in the words of the Great Man himself…

    ‘…Another form of inertia is rotational inertia (→ moment of inertia), the property that a rotating rigid body maintains its state of uniform rotational motion…’

    Now let’s precisely define momentum…both linear and rotational…so that we may see how the property of inertia…ie a body’s tendency to keep [or conserve] its original state of motion…arises out of momentum…

    Linear momentum [or translational momentum] is simply mass x velocity…so a person of 100 kg running at 5 meters per second will have a momentum of 500 kg*m/s…

    –Serway, Physics for Scientists and Engineers, page 248…

    Or From a similar text by Knight…page 242…


    p being momentum…and mass being m…v being velocity…

    For those who do not have this book or similar…wikipedia entry on momentum is adequate to understanding this…

    Let us consider now that runner above and imagine that he is a football player…another player runs into him and shoves him off his course and out of bounds…

    What has happened here is that the inertia of the runner was disturbed by the force of the collision with another player…

    If that runner was a truck that had a mass of 10,000 kg instead of 100…obviously that other player running into such a truck would not be able to shove the truck aside…

    That is due to the inertia of that moving truck…

    It is the same thing with a rotating object which has inertia also…and it is the inertia that resists force that is applied to it…

    So we see that inertia is a function of momentum…ie the greater the momentum the more inertia the moving object possesses…not the other way around…

    It is the inertia that is the property that resists any force applied to it…

    Now let’s look at rotational [or angular] momentum…

    We see here that angular momentum is defined as…

    L = I x ώ

    Where L is the angular momentum…I is the moment of inertia…and ώ is the angular velocity…

    We compare this equation to linear momentum where P = m x v

    P being momentum…m being mass…and v being linear velocity…

    We notice that these two equations are the same except that there is no mass in the angular momentum equation…

    The mass is replaced by the moment of inertia…I…

    ‘…Notice that moment of inertia is the rotational equivalent of mass…’

    –Knight, page 346…[Knight's emphasis not mine]

    Knight goes on to articulate the nuances of this distinction…

    ‘…Recall that the quantity we call mass was actually defined as the inertial mass. Objects with larger mass have a larger inertia, meaning that they’re harder to accelerate. Similarly, an object with a larger moment of inertia is harder to rotate. The fact that moment of inertia retains the word “inertia’ reminds us of this…’

    –Knight, page 346-7 [all emphasis by Knight]

    So like I already pointed out to you…you are only causing confusion with your stupidity…

    The reason that a spinning gyro…or any rotating object has resistance to being deflected off its axis of rotation is due to its inertia…

    As for your other gibberish about gyroscopes in inertial nav systems…you squawked this…

    ‘…You are wrong in attributing positioning to the gyroscope. That role is filled by the accelerometers…’

    What a complete and utter asswipe you are…

    What does that piece of gibberish even mean…?

    Where did I ever ‘attribute’ positioning [whatever the hell that is supposed to mean] to gyroscopes…?

    Please look at my comment #102…

    I clearly explained how inertial nav systems are able to use gyroscopes to determine their geographical position…

    ‘…Knowing the exact geographic coordinates from where you started the flight…the inertial system can thus calculate your position at any time during the flight based on the accelerations of the vehicle that have occurred since moment one…’

    And…

    ‘…A computer is used to do the math…namely two integrations [calculus] which are required to take the gyro sensor inputs and convert them to a position fix…’

    What an idiot you are…what do you think a ‘sensor’ means…?

    How any person with even a retarded tiny brain could come away with that from my clear and precise explanation is beyond comprehension…

    And let’s look at what you just shat out here…

    ‘…The gyroscope does not respond to changes in X, Y, or Z positioning or velocity. It responds to torque forces that perturb its rotational axis, i.e. angular momentum…’

    What an utter idiot…you think you can bullshit here because you assume some of the readers may not understand your meaningless bird squawks…

    Again…my explanation of how an inertial nav system works on the basis of gyros is 100 percent correct…you are either completely retarded or cannot read or comprehend…

    I think it is a combination of both…as you are unable to express yourself in a precise way that is required of the subject matter…

    No…the gyroscope does not ‘respond to torque forces’…because there are none acting on it you idiot…the gyroscope is mounted in a gimbal which isolates it from the accelerations experienced by the craft…and allows it to remain in its orientation…ie its inertial frame of reference you utter idiot…

    ‘… I am quite acquainted with Newtonian physics after completing a year at university level (straight-A in case you were wondering) plus geophysics…’

    Wow…a whole year of undergrad physics…that’s impressive…[yet you showed you are not even able to solve a triangle on the other thread...]

    So since you have such a strong ‘acquaintance’ with physics and gyroscopes…and even aircraft autopilot systems and inertial nav systems…then you should not have any problem in solving for the moment of inertia of a disk on an axis…

    Good luck moron…

    The objectives of the 1956 War went far beyond protecting Britain's interest in the canal. They included deposing Nasser to end his nationalist policies and, as far as France was concerned, end Egypt's support for Algerian independence. The Suez Canal would have been restored as a British colony as surely as the Canal Zone is an American colony. The Protocols of Sevres negotiated between Britain, France, and Israel made that quite clear.

    Certainly France had a quasi imperial objective in mind – if you ignore the actual legal status of Algeria. (And getting rid of Nasser as the leader of Arab nationalism and potential ally of the USSR was certainly an objective). But……your trying to support your original statement wrt British imperial dominion is looking a bit desperate when you refer to the Suez Canal Zone as a “colony”, past or prospective. That would require a novel definition of colony.

    Your bigger problem is a word beginning with “b”. Let’s be polite and call it bluffing. You call the Protocol of Sèvres in aid but you haven’t actually read it (I say as an indirect tribute to your presumed intelligence). Far from that secret agreement making it clear that the Canal Zone would become a British Colony it refers only to “temporary occupation” by “Anglo-French [sic] forces”.

    What was done in the past abroad is now finding a better platform at home. Iraq war was planned and carried out with the same certainty that was thought won’t blow up ever into thousands pieces .

    But a deeper uneasiness with this development is the lack of synch between the ruled and the rulers – the system can’t tolerate this tension too long. The evolving Republic did manage to stymie this sort tension in late eighteen hundred by force, compromise, subterfuge and by coopting . Tension continued until 1945. From 1950 to until 2008, the rulers managed to ignore truth,public,voters, supporters and same time managed to convince the public that everything being done was being done with the understanding and consent of the public for the greater good of the public.

    Facing this new tension at this ripe age of the empire shows that the old tricks and magics will not work and are not working . But rewiring and re-plumbing are not easy job . Edifice might has to come down . The living system has outlived its organic machines that hold it together .

    One can only hope that the attack was coordinated with the Russians; that would give a glimmer of hope that some sanity remains somewhere in DC (District of Criminals).

    I don't know if Trump is being forced into this neocon trap, or if he simply played us. Either way, the result is almost the same (at least if he is being forced, there is a slim chance he could outmaneuver them).

    “…there is a slim chance he could outmaneuver them…”

    He outmaneuvered them to win the GOP primary. He outmaneuvered them to win the general election. He outmaneuvered them after the previous chemical weapons false flag, and has now outmaneuvered them after this one. The Deep State/CIA-sponsored jihadists execute a phony chemical weapons attack, he executes a bit of phony “retaliation” kabuki. Then the world opinion settles into two groups: those that “get it” (wink, wink), and those that don’t.

    Despite being a complete newbie, Trump is instinctively good at this game. After just over a year, he is playing at a much higher level than his adversaries. And he still has two years and nine months to go ***in only his first term***.

    There is only a slim chance they will outmaneuver him.

    The Dems are following the same “Here comes the blue wave” self-delusion in the run-up to the 2018 mid-terms, that cost them in 2016, where it took the form of “Here comes Hillary”. And the GOP “Never Trumpers” are bailing. So let’s just see what happens in November. Will Trump be weakened or strengthened?

    At this stage in the game I'm not one to ramble about "3D Chess", but I get the sense that Trump's tweeting was intended to warn Putin and thus deescalate. Of course on the flip side we have (uncomfirmed) reports that Trump and his bloodthirsty NSC chair Fox Bolton were arguing for a bigger attack than the generals would agree to.

    If nothing else it's quite clear that any effort to withdraw from Syria simply immediately results in a false flag attack. Even if chemical weapons were as awful as is supposed (I agree with Mr. Reed), that doesn't make it relevant to American interests.

    The strangest thing with Syria is how obsessed the Empire is with destroying it. Various reasons are given such as Israel, gas pipelines, and containing Iran. At the end of the day I think it's primarily psychological. The Empire is outraged that the Assman dares to resist.`

  • The gas attack was a false flag by the white helmets who are working for the U.S. and ISRAEL and BRITAIN, Assad has never gassed his people, and no one was killed in this latest fake attack, this was used as a catalyst to get the U.S. to attack Syria again.

    The U.S has no legal right to be in Syria and had no legal right to bomb and invade Afghanistan and Iraq and Syria and Yemen and the dozens of other countries where the zionist controlled U.S. gov has gone to war illegally on behalf of the Zionist controlled MIC and the zionist controlled banks, all wars are banker wars.

    At this stage in the game I'm not one to ramble about "3D Chess", but I get the sense that Trump's tweeting was intended to warn Putin and thus deescalate. Of course on the flip side we have (uncomfirmed) reports that Trump and his bloodthirsty NSC chair Fox Bolton were arguing for a bigger attack than the generals would agree to.

    If nothing else it's quite clear that any effort to withdraw from Syria simply immediately results in a false flag attack. Even if chemical weapons were as awful as is supposed (I agree with Mr. Reed), that doesn't make it relevant to American interests.

    The strangest thing with Syria is how obsessed the Empire is with destroying it. Various reasons are given such as Israel, gas pipelines, and containing Iran. At the end of the day I think it's primarily psychological. The Empire is outraged that the Assman dares to resist.`

    Taki has recently removed the comments sections from the articles on Taki’s Magazine. Replaced by a ‘Letters to the Editors’ system.

    Considering the idiocy of posters there ‘Hey, first to post. Aren’t I great.’, then a discussion of that at the start of most comment threads on the site, it is seeming logical.

    You have a good point about the criticism of Jews.

    Used to comment some at Taki, and some of the postsdid indeed blame the Jews for everything imaginable and some things that weren’t imaginable.

    However, your other remark is also appropriate.

    A year or so ago I remarked on a website about the odd issue of Jews leading the fight against “white privilege.” I hunted down Jewish/Gentile statistics and compared them to the similar black/white statistics that are commonly used to prove the existence of white privilege. I noted that these statistics showed pretty clearly that Jewish Privilege is much stronger than White Privilege. (Assuming one accepts such statistics as relevant, as the White Privilege denouncers normally do.)

    Oh my word! Hysterics ensued.

    I am not in the least anti-Semitic, but I am also not blind. Clearly many (most?) Jews do not think the rules they impose on others should be applied to them. For instance, if it is unfair for any (prestigious) occupation to be held by whites above their proportion of the population, it is equally unfair for Jews to disproportionately occupy those positions. I was not even objecting to the fact of this disproportion, but rather to the hypocrisy of differential application of what are purportedly universal rules.

    Don’t forget Woodrow and FDR, assisted by the Brits, lying to get us into WWs I & II. Why American soldiers had to died by the tens of thousands to help the Europeans destroy their fellow Europeans and most of the churches, bridges, factories and basic infrastructure is not a question that has ever been polite to ask. Not to mention then paying for the clean up and (second time around) paying to keep the Ruskies from doing, after WWII, what we helped them to do while it was going on.

    Just a bit more real truth from PCR. Carry on ...

    All of America, indeed of the entire West, lives in The Matrix, a concocted [and false] reality. Western peoples are so propagandized, so brainwashed, that they have no understanding that their disunity was created in order to make them impotent in the face of a rapacious ruling class, a class whose arrogance and hubris has the world on the brink of nuclear Armageddon.

    History as it actually happened is disappearing as those who tell the truth are dismissed as misogynists, racists, homophobes, Putin agents, terrorist sympathizers, anti-Semites, and conspiracy theorists. Liberals who complained mightily of McCarthyism now practice it ten-fold.

    ...

    The United States with its brainwashed and incompetent population—indeed, the entirety of the Western populations are incompetent—and with its absence of intelligent leadership has no chance against Russia and China, two massive countries arising from their overthrow of police states as the West descends into a gestapo state. The West is over and done with. Nothing remains of the West but the lies used to control the people. All hope is elsewhere.
     

    The whole of the comment

    To an order of magnitude: us deplorables are hard-wired for being herded and living by tuning in on our insignificant other. That is why man and wife pairs are so close general IQ wise as a rule, that is why… our politicians, media, scribes, the output of Holywood is close to the street. Cops and thieves, the good guys and the bad guys, bigger is better permeate language, the vocabulary itself points to ignorance.

    The output of our elites, are …what we deserve: more of trash and toxic rediculance.

    No question, if for a second as in history, a few times has happened, the deplorables “escape” the bashing worse chaos results, and in a blimp of time they submit to a next cycle of herding.

    That is the destiny of the species, that is how humanity perishes if nothing more clement appears to get at us obese masses. The comment is destined to our own, so it might be of to a degree or two, sure enough someone might find the bone and run with it.

    PCR's latest is really good. I love it when he gets to ripping, and doesn't stop for 2000+ words or so. It reads a lot better than Toynbee, fersher.

    The working class, designated by Hillary Clinton as “the Trump deplorables,” is now the victimizer, not the victim. Marxism has been stood on its head.

    The American ruling class loves Identity Politics, because Identity Politics divides the people into hostile groups and prevents any resistance to the ruling elite. With blacks screaming at whites, women screaming at men, and homosexuals screaming at heterosexuals, there is no one left to scream at the rulers.

    The ruling elite favors a “conversation on race,” because the ruling elite know it can only result in accusations that will further divide society. Consequently, the ruling elite have funded “black history,” “women’s studies,” and “transgender dialogues,” in universities as a way to institutionalize the divisiveness that protects them. These “studies” have replaced real history with fake history.

    Well, what they can do is have CIA murder you or torture you and get away with it. That's pretty much sufficient for your day-to-day criminal needs.

    Gina Haspel doesn't want to fight em, she wants somebody else to bring em in and tie em up, and then when it's safe she'll beat em up. Or better yet she'll get some dumb GI grunt in there to beat em up so she can sacrifice them if her CIA death camps get exposed. Then when it's time to take her medicine and go to prison for torture, she's not like Liddy, she's, Oh boo hoo hoo hoo I can't take it in jail.

    We know she's getting shoehorned in there because she's a fugitive in universal jurisdiction and she's motivated to get torture cowards off the hook. But she's better than the Statue of Liberty as a symbol of chickenshit America with sneak scum CIA in charge.

    Remember Lyndie England, the Abu Ghraib prison reserve private who worked as a guard in the Iraq war?

    The mossad guard trainers told the American reservists it would doubly humiliate Muslim prisoners if women guards tormented them

    When the alleged abuse was finally exposed a young deplorable prole national guard woman private England took the blame and went to federal prison.

    Good piece.

    "One: The aghastment and horrilation about the terrible, appalling, shocking etc nature of gas warfare is nonsense. There is nothing unusually hideous about the use of toxic chemicals. Hideous, yes, but not unusually hideous."

    Sure, but this is looking at things from a relatively honest moral perspective, based on some kind of universally-applicable rules. If your primary concern is instead the formation and promotion of a simplistic, Manichaean narrative in order to justify attacks on your enemies under cover of pretended "humanitarianism," while disguising your actual motivations, then defining "chemical warfare" as something uniquely horrible and evil has distinct advantages.

    It can be very useful as part of a propaganda narrative when you want to:
    1. Demonstrate how the villain in the narrative is somehow qualitatively different/ much more evil than other leaders engaged in similar activities, whether warfare, oppression, or both. The "gas" meme short-circuits any potentially inconvenient whataboutism that might arise,
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whataboutism
    especially with respect to other countries that are receiving enthusiastic support, rather than condemnation, from "our" government. "Saudi Arabia's not using "chemical weapons" in Yemen, so it doesn't count." "The Israelis sniped those protesters; they didn't gas them, so it's clearly not the same kind of thing." Etc.

    2. Evoke associations with a historical event that is seen as uniquely evil, also involving gas. Associative conditioning is much easier than convincing people through rational argumentation.

    As a minor aside, "barrel bomb" appears to be a more subtle (and more recent) meme/ shortcut to designate the "bad guys" in the narrative. What, a bomb with better aerodynamics would somehow be morally superior?

    “Saudi Arabia’s not using “chemical weapons” in Yemen, so it doesn’t count.”

    Every bomb, bullet, and missle is a chemical weapon(expanding gases).

    In order to find someone who was willing to lay the USA fleet ready for destruction in the mouse trap Pearl Harbour FDR had to jump 50 promotion places.

    So, in my opinion, Kimmel knew quite well what was coming.

    What the hearings were meant for I do not know, as I'm not a mind reader.
    In any case, there was no cover up:
    Harry Elmer Barnes, ed., ‘Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace, A critical examination of the foreign policy of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and its aftermath’, Caldwell, Idaho, 1953
    The introduction of the book makes clear how to suppress the truth.

    There are thousands of books written about Pearl Harbor. Many claim Roosevelt helped instigate the whole thing to drive the American people to support the war.

    Most of these books were best sellers when published. High school, college and public libraries are full of Roosevelt biographies, his administration and endless WW2 and Pearl Harbor books.

    Much of the information in those books is on the internet now. America has millions of WW2 aficionados who endless debate the subject. Our educational TV channels are full of WW2, Pearl Harbor and what did Roosevelt know?

    Trump's biggest mistake was choosing Mike Pence Mr. Ziocon Deep State as his running mate. His second biggest mistake was putting Pence in charge of the transition team that put together the cabinet. Pence saturated the Trump cabinet with his fellow Ziocons(and former Trump haters) like Nikki Haley, John Bolton, Rod Rosenstein, McMaster, Mike Pompeo, and all the Cohens from Wall Street to continue looting the treasury. I believe he also played a big hand in convincing Trump to keep Ryan, despite everything Ryan did to Trump during the campaign, they have a tight bond through their deep Christian faith. Pence also got rid of Chris Christie, though that was in deference to Jared Kushner.

    I think Pence has been pulling a soft coup since Day 1. He wants to be POTUS, not VPOTUS. He's Francis Underwood minus the murderous zeal.

    I think you’re right. I remember during the campaign a lot of liberal pundits speculated about what to do if Trump won.

    The answer was to impeach Trump as soon as possible and replace him with Pence.

    Since liberal and Jewish thought is one and the same, that might still be what’s planned.

They did not impede the Syrian Army's ongoing military offensive...

    I have been on this board several years , idiot. So once again we have you babbling about things you clearly no nothing about. Do you ever do any kind of fact checking at all ?

    >Yawn< You've obviously mistaken me for someone who gives a shit what you write.

    If you didn't care then you would not have replied. People generally reply to things they care about. I don't care about baby rattles, for example. So you will notice I have not replied to a thread about them.

    Now I care about your reply because I enjoy exposing idiots.

    Do you see the difference in presenting an argument based upon some evidence? And what was you original post about? You were trying lick wounds with your ally. That is what people who doubt their own resources do. They gather consensus because wish to overwhelm by the superiority of numbers.

  • Wednesday’s criminal referral by 11 House Republicans of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as well as several former and serving top FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ) officials is a giant step toward a Constitutional crisis. Named in the referral to the DOJ for possible violations of federal law are: Clinton, former FBI Director...

    OT, but there seems to be a collective memory loss as to why Paul Craig Roberts disabled comments. Since I was at least peripherally involved, I'll refresh that memory:

    PCR wrote a column with which I generally agreed but in which I thought he had gone a bit over the top. I commented with a mild snarc to that effect. Some cowardly crap weasel then launched an attack against me but disguised it so that it appeared to be coming directly from PCR. The comment stream degenerated after that point. PCR was disgusted enough with the whole sordid mess that shortly afterwards he requested that Mr. Unz disable all future comments.

    I remember it well. It was pretty obvious that he didn’t really write it, even though his favorite word, “insouciant” was used.

    That's the one word that he uses too much, always reminds me of somebody about to go Hock tewwy!
    Don't get why PCR needs that french twobit word in there, and it detracts a lot, makes PCR sound like some kind of drama critic don't it?

  • With slight disappointment the public regarded the field. Just a minute ago, two knights were converging in fearsome joust, their spears pointing forth, plumage blowing, horses galloping, ladies out waving their handkerchiefs to their champions, - and now we see they have passed each other, both firmly in the saddle, plumage unruffled, spears unbloodied, horses...

    '... Air defenders are well aware of this vulnerability…so they would create a heavy jamming environment around the defended area in order to get the cruise missiles to lose radalt and pop up…
     
    That is the exact scenario I had surmised from the evident altitude of intercepted cruise missiles over Damascus...'
     
    What 'evident altitude' moronboy...?

    You have proved only that you cannot even solve a triangle...

    There is no 'evident altitude' to be gleaned from those videos...as I have conclusively proved...

    Hey fool,

    If you don’t understand velocity, ascent angle (approximate), and time by now you never will. It doesn’t matter how you try to puff yourself up by pontificating about elementary trigonometry.

    Still no answer from you about the hit rate on cruise missiles by 1960s-70s systems during the Kosovo war.

    You can cry in your cornflakes all you want Turd-Eye...

    Fact is that Serbs humiliated the USAF by shooting down two F117s and the future USAF chief of staff...and fought the US and combined Nato air armada of 1,000 planes to a draw...

    As for your silly height measurements...I have already proved that you are full of shit...

    Don't bother debating with FB. He is a Mr. Know All, regards himself as the final depository of all knowledge and wisdom, loutishly rude for no reason, and given to hurling insults and abuse.
