Has there been an increase in church burnings over the last year? I can think of historic churches being set afire recently — the Gothic cathedral in France, the Spanish mission in California, the church across from the White House — but it’s hard to tell if they represent a trend. But, in general, when the media goes nuts, they often inspire real nuts to do their thing, which sometimes involve setting churches on fire.

Here’s a local police blotter item from a week ago in Toledo, Ohio:

According to Toledo Municipal Court documents, a warrant was issued for Harris for spray painting “Jesus is black” and “black” multiple times on Rosary Cathedral on Collingwood Boulevard on Monday morning.

He is also accused of pouring a flammable liquid on the doors of the cathedral and lighting it. There was damage to the doors but not the inside of the cathedral.

The cops went to arrest Harris, at which point he murdered a young white policeman named Brandon Stalker.

This lurid series of events is considered Not National News for reasons.

    You'll know someone is a real right wing populist when they start proposing specific legal changes to systemically reform the media so that it's more aligned with the interests of normal white people. Trump and all the other fakers just play off of peoples hatred of the media and then don't even try to do anything of substance.


    And Trump talking about making it easier for him and other high profile people to sue doesn't count. The media's problems have nothing to do with being too reckless in taking on rich, powerful people. And it's all moot because he didn't even try to do that either.

    The one substantial thing Trump did to reform media was remove regulations requiring local control over broadcast television newscasts. So he actually made things more centralized and worse.

    The younger brother said he was downstairs with his parents when they heard gunfire upstairs. His sister shrieked: 'He shot them,' and more shots rang out.

    He said his brother then 'came downstairs with a draco gun, a handgun that shoots rifle rounds, and started shooting', the police report states.

    The younger brother ran out of the house as his father followed behind him and opened fire multiple times. It's believed those shots were the ones neighbors reported hearing.

  5. This lurid series of events is considered Not National News.

    I don’t think it’s relevant anymore to debate whether something should be news at the national level. Beyond the local level, there is no news business, there is only a narrative business. That which supports the narrative is presented to the public, that which does not, is not. And that which supports the narrative need not be important or even true, it need only make the desired impression on the receptive portion of the public. That is why this story is not presented to the public while an incident involving a white woman, her dog, and a gay black bird watcher is.

    You may be right. . . with a name like Brandon Stalker. He may have he rolled out of bed that final morning, read some Unz Review and got to thinkin'-- "I think it's about time to kill myself a nigger on this shift."

  7. You racistly forgot to mention that Christopher Harris was also murdered by the racist white police of Toledo. You’re absolutely right – this story should have national prominence as the story of yet one more black man murdered by police. Yes it’s true that he had just shot a white cop in the head but that was only one shot. There was no need for the cops to racistly shoot him 17 times. Except for the guns he was carrying in each hand, he was completely unarmed. If they had let his mama talk to him he might have surrendered.

    I somewhat side with the mom on this one. Not in terms of any modern day woke BS, but general massive managerial state stuff. The police chief's answer is standard big government bureaucratic speak:


    “I guarantee you. It can’t be proven now, but if I would have walked in the door, my son would’ve come out of there alive with handcuffs, and I guarantee you nobody would’ve been shot and killed,” said Crystal Harris.

    Toledo Police Chief George Kral says there were three negotiators on the scene and that he would never put anyone in harm’s way.
    Advertisement

    “I appreciate her wanting to help her son. I get it. I’m a parent myself, but there is no way on God’s green earth that I’m going to let someone into a barricaded house where we know the suspect has a weapon and he has made homicidal threats on Facebook,” Kral said.
     
    Why NOT let someone in? because the you're going to be sued? Make her sign or record a release, maybe put a vest on her and let her try.

    since they knew the guy was armed and unstable why the F did they CS the place anyway? wouldn't that make the unstable armed man become irritated and come out and do what irritated unstable armed people do?

    Throw in flashbangs or maybe smoke and then assault the place ok, at least it's contained within a building. In this case they raised what they sowed.

    from the article in the OP:

    Officers reportedly tried to negotiate for two hours with Harris. However, these attempts were unsuccessful. The SWAT team fired tear gas into the house in an attempt to get Harris to exit the home and surrender. Stalker was not a member of the SWAT team but was doing perimeter security work during the standoff.

    After the tear gas was deployed, Harris exited the house with a firearm in both hands and fired shots in several directions.

    One shot struck Stalker in the head. Stalker was taken to Mercy-Health St. Vincent Medical Center but succumbed to his injuries.

    What would a pro-white media reform look like? Unless you nail media companies for antitrust (would only work for major networks and media conglomerates) they have endless protection through the 1st Amendment. Short of barring jews from owning media companies or a change in libel laws - which would backfire in the ways - the only way to protect the interests of whites would be to further mock and discredit mainstream media.

    I would like to see protections for hosting alternative media so that Cloudflare can't just pull the domain of someone they don't like, such as the Daily Stormer.

    Declassified CIA file reveals that US spies believed that Soviet doctors had 'perfected' Extra-Sensory Perception in the 1980s and could transmit thoughts and feelings to subjects

    By Harriet Alexander
    26 Jan 2021

    CIA officials believed that Soviet scientists took part in 'several successful Extra-Sensory Perception (ESP) experiments' in the 1980s, according to a recently-declassified document from the time.

    The U.S. spies wrote in an April 1991 memo that they thought the Russians had made remarkable progress in understanding ESP - reception of information not gained through the recognized physical senses, but sensed with the mind...

    So fucking embarrassing. I guess an organization which recruits political science, foreign service, and area studies majors will not be the best and brightest.

    When you see the caliber of people leading the CIA nowadays, like John Brennan, a Fordham political science major, you can’t help but think that dumbing down the CIA was intentional and either a product of the war on WASPs— when you had Princeton men like Allen Dulles running it— and/or an easy way to infiltrate and control.

    The motion was introduced by New Democratic Party (NDP) leader Jagmeet Singh, who celebrated its passage on Monday afternoon, though he voiced a note of caution, stating that Trudeau “has a habit of breaking his promises” and can’t be trusted to “follow through” on the measure.

    Singh moved to add the group to the “terrorist entities” blacklist almost immediately after the riot at the US Capitol on January 6, which saw a crowd of supporters of former president Donald Trump storm the building as Congress convened to certify Joe Biden’s election win. By January 7, the NDP chief launched a petition deeming the Proud Boys a “right-wing extremist group that promotes white supremacist views,” while stating that its members “joined a group armed with deadly weapons as they led an assault on the US Capitol.”

    Shurely something from an alternate universe? Maybe “The Man in the High Castle”?

    The Canadian government, for its part, said it is considering the terrorist designation, but has yet to pull the trigger, with Minister of Public Safety Bill Blair stating: “We’re working very diligently to ensure that where the evidence is available… that we’ll deal appropriately” with the Proud Boys – a group created by Canadian citizen Gavin McInnes, a co-founder of Vice magazine.

    “We’re very mindful of ideologically motivated violent extremists, including groups like the Proud Boys. They are white supremacists, anti-Semitics, Islamophobic, misogynist groups. They’re all hateful, they’re all dangerous,” Blair said.

    They also torture puppies and throw cats at passing cars. And troll the hell out of everybody.

    Interesting! the Canadian Sikhs had their Khalistani Independence struggle/resistance crushed by the Indian state. And now they crush the resistance of Western conservatives.

    It's ridiculous to label the Proud Boys a terrorist organization. They are so clownishly ineffective I'm beginning to believe the FBI had no role in building their clubhouse. They are just harmless loudmouths interested in wrestling and saunas who routinely get chased off the streets by antifa black bloc soft-boys. If they were smart they'd manufacture Proud Boyz action figures and sell them at Ye Olde Craft Faires. Not having to go to craft faires is the best thing about not having a girlfriend.

    How the Far East Was Lost: American Policy and the Creation of Communist China, 1941-1949 Paperback – April 28, 2012
    by Anthony Kubek (Author)

    https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/41NI--YzqCL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

    FDR's regime was full of Soviet agents like Alger Hiss, White etc.... Stalin was always afraid of his rear in the Far East and his biggest fear was the Japanese Empire, it was in his interest that the Japanese Empire could be quagmired in a war with the Nationalist Chinese KMT as well as a war in between the USA and the Japanese Empire.
    On April 6, 1927 the troops of Chang Tso-lin raided the Soviet Embassy in Peking and discovered documents that abundantly proved the Russians were spreading propaganda and planning to establish Communism in China.

    The Japanese saw this situation very clearly, and Japan to protect her own security, began to take measures to check the flow of the Red tide. The Japanese statesmen understood the Communist threat in the Far East far better than any other nation could have. It was clear to the Japanese that unless bastions of defense were built in Manchuria and Inner Mongolia, Communism would spread all of North China and seriously threaten the security of Japan.

    Secretary of State Henry L. Stimson directed a long verbal barrage against the Japanese. When FDR became President in 1933, he supported the “Stimson Doctrine” without reservation. It is significant that during the first Cabinet meeting of the Roosevelt Administration, March 7, 1933 the eventuality of war with Japan was carefully considered. On October 5,1937, FDR made a famous address at Chicago, in which he advocated a “quarantine” against aggressor nations. His words of sharp criticism were directed at Japan. He had inaugurated a new policy of pressure that helped drive Americans down the road to war.

    Harry Dexter White ( Soviet mole) putting pressure on the Japanese by sending a letter signed “Henry Morgenthau Jr.” to the President Roosevelt on the 24th or 25th of November. In words told of the dire consequences that would come in the wake of any agreement with Japan. Pressure exerted by Communist sympathizers in the Institute of Pacific Relations must also be taken into account when analyzing the reasons for the many rejections of a truce with Japan. On November 25, Professor Owen Lattimore, (Soviet spy) the special advisor to Chiang Kai-shek dispatched an anxious cable to Presidential Assistant Lauchlin Currie ( Soviet Spy) arguing against any agreement between the United States and Japan on a modus vivendi.

    The Institute of Pacific Relations (IPR) probably more than any other single factor, conditioned out people to abandon the mainland of China to the Communist. When Edward C. Carter became the chief administrator, July 1934, welcomed the USSR as a new member. The American branch of the IPR grew rapidly and prospered, boasting over 1,000 members. The Rockefeller, Carnegie foundations gave millions of dollars. J.P. Morgan, Shell Oil, International Business Machines, British Lever Brothers and many others. The IPR has been an organization whose chief function has been to influence United States public opinion on Far East matters. The Senate Subcommittee has concluded that the IPR has been neither objective nor nonpartisan and that since the mid 1930s, the net effect of the IPR activities on United States public opinion has been pro-Communist and pro-Soviet, and has frequently and repeatedly been such as to serve international Communist Chinese Communist and Soviet interests, and to subvert the interest of the United States.

    It are think tanks like these which push all these Cultural Marxist race and gender bending in the USA.

    These details are entirely unnecessary. The real story starts below.

    The cops went to arrest Harris, at which point he murdered a young white policeman named Brandon Stalker.

    Is this anything like "mostly peaceful protest"? Or, getting served "mostly non-urine beer"? "Mostly" is the new weasel word.

    Hopefully you are joking. Certain black people seem to have the idea that being arrested should be optional on their part - they don't have to be arrested if they don't feel like it. It's not really possible to have a society if the criminals get to decide whether they want to go to jail or not. Low IQ and mentally ill black criminals may not understand this, but you should. You could make an argument that graffiti should be a ticketable offense not involving arrest but I know of nowhere in the world where you would not get arrested for attempted arson.

    His arson was "mostly" non-destructive was by sheer luck or perhaps incompetence. Once a church fire gets going it's usually very difficult to put out because the church is just one big open space. The fact that millions of $ of property was not destroyed and fire fighters were not injured or killed was not due to lack of trying.

Yes it's true that he had just shot a white cop in the head but that was only one shot. There was no need for the cops to racistly shoot him 17 times. Except for the guns he was carrying in each hand, he was completely unarmed. If they had let his mama talk to him he might have surrendered.

    Martyrdom/sacrifice/suffering are among the organizing principles of orthodox christianity. It is a good jiu-jitsu ideology if you want to convince other people to sacrifice for you so you can get stuff. But it's less compelling if you've realized that you really don't want to sacrifice to help people who are trying to destroy your culture.

    Trump worse than Hitler

    Trump, said Chomsky, is singular in the history of mankind in that he “has been working on the extinguishing (…) of the expectations of human life on earth.”

    “Wiener Zeitung”: Herr Chomsky, Donald Trump ist nicht mehr Präsident der Vereinigten Staaten. Wie fühlt sich das an?

    Noam Chomsky: Es fühlt sich gut an, diesen bösartigen Tumor los zu sein, der uns hätte zerstören können. Weitere vier Jahre Trump hätten uns vielleicht zu einem irreversiblen Kipppunkt gebracht. Die Trump-Administration war die gefährlichste Regierung der Weltgeschichte.

    Hitler war furchtbar, keine Frage. Er verkörperte vielleicht den tiefsten Punkt, an den die Menschheit jemals gesunken ist. Aber hat Hitler daran gearbeitet, die Möglichkeiten für menschliches Leben auf der Erde zu zerstören? Trump hat es getan. Es gibt keine andere politische Figur in der Geschichte, die ihre Hauptanstrengungen dem Versuch gewidmet hat, die Aussichten für menschliches Leben auf der Erde zu zerstören. Nicht Dschingis Khan, nicht Attila der Hunne, niemand, der mir einfällt. Trump war einzigartig. Er hat sehr hart daran gearbeitet, die Nutzung fossiler Brennstoffe zu maximieren und die Regulierungen zu beseitigen, die ihre Auswirkungen etwas abgemildert haben. Es war ein Wettlauf in die Katastrophe. Und die Trump-Regierung wusste genau, was sie tat. Das ist doch Irrsinn!

    Trump hat sich vielleicht nicht um die Konsequenzen seiner Politik gekümmert. Aber es war sicher nicht sein Ziel, die Menschheit auszulöschen. . .

    Ich glaube, dass es ihm egal war. Er wusste, was geschehen würde. Wir haben nur noch wenig Zeit, um die globale Erwärmung einzugrenzen. Vier Jahre, die die Krise beschleunigt haben, sind ein nie dagewesenes Verbrechen.

    Zur Person:

    Noam Chomsky wurde 1928 in Philadelphia (USA) als Sohn jüdischer, russisch-stämmiger Eltern geboren. Er ist emeritierter Professor für Sprachwissenschaft und Philosophie am Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

    Er hat die moderne Linguistik revolutioniert und ist einer der bekanntesten linken Intellektuellen und Politaktivisten. Seit dem Vietnamkrieg ist er scharfer Kritiker der US-Außenpolitik und des globalen Kapitalismus. Sein neues Buch “Rebellion oder Untergang. Ein Aufruf zu globalem Ungehorsam zur Rettung unserer Zivilisation” ist soeben

    Am 20. Jänner wurde Joe Biden als neuer US-Präsident vereidigt. Wird jetzt alles gut?

    Bidens erste Schritte sind ermutigend. Aber es gibt viele Probleme, die zu bewältigen sind, und seine eigenen Programme reichen bei weitem nicht aus, um mit den beiden wichtigsten Problemen fertig zu werden, die das Überleben unserer Spezies gefährden können: die wachsende Bedrohung durch einen Atomkrieg und die Umweltkatastrophe. Die Bedrohung durch einen Atomkrieg hat stark zugenommen.

    Was hat einen verheerenden Atomkrieg wahrscheinlicher gemacht?

    Es gab ein Rüstungskontrollregime, das über fast 60 Jahre mühsam aufgebaut wurde. Aber Trump hat es demontiert. Darüber hinaus haben Trump und andere Akteure Initiativen zur Entwicklung neuer und weitaus gefährlicherer Atomwaffen gestartet. Kombiniert mit provokativen Aktionen in vielen Teilen der Welt und einer Reihe von ungerechtfertigten Angriffen auf den Iran – von Attentaten, Sabotage, Cyberkrieg bis hin zu vernichtenden lähmenden Sanktionen – hat dies die Gefahr eines Atomkriegs stark erhöht.

    Trump hat jetzt nicht mehr die Kontrolle über die Codes für die US-Atomwaffen. Ist die Welt so sicherer geworden?

    Sie ist wahrscheinlich ein bisschen sicherer geworden, denn Trump war unberechenbar. Es wäre doch möglich gewesen, dass er in einem Anfall von psychotischer Angst plötzlich sagt: “OK, ich mache es!” Ich bin sicher, dass die oberste Militärführung der Vereinigten Staaten sehr erleichtert ist, dass die Situation jetzt berechenbarer ist.

    Was wird jetzt aus Trump?

    Trump könnte – vielleicht in Mar-a-Lago – eine Art alternative Schattenregierung errichten. Das halte ich für sehr wahrscheinlich. Er wird sich als der legitime Präsident darstellen, der von einem sehr großen Teil der republikanischen Wählerbasis unterstützt wird. Ich vermute, er wird mit Mitch McConnell zusammenarbeiten, der ein Genie darin ist, das Land unregierbar zu machen. Erinnern Sie sich an McConnell, während der ersten beiden Obama-Jahre? McConnell war der Minderheitenführer im Senat. Er sagte geradeheraus, wir müssen alles tun, um sicherzustellen, dass Obama scheitert. Das bedeutet, alles zu tun, um das Land unregierbar zu machen, so viel Schaden anzurichten, wie wir können. Die Republikaner wollten die so entstehenden Probleme den Demokraten anlasten, um so wieder an die Macht zu kommen. Ich sehe keinen Grund, daran zu zweifeln, dass McConnell jetzt nicht wieder das Gleiche tun wird. Das ist ein schlechter Traum, aber es ist kein unmöglicher Albtraum. Es ist ein sehr denkbares Szenario.

    Könnte ein Amtsenthebungsverfahren dies nicht verhindern?

    Ich schätze die Erfolgsaussichten für ein Impeachment nicht besonders hoch ein. Und das Einzige, was durch das Verfahren erreicht werden würde, wäre, dass Trump kein öffentliches Amt mehr bekleiden dürfte. Das ist zwar immerhin etwas, aber wenn es nicht Trump sein wird, dann wird es jemand sein, der so ähnlich wie Trump ist.

    In seiner Antrittsrede sagte Präsident Biden, eine seiner wichtigsten Aufgaben sei es nun, das Land wieder zu vereinen und zu versöhnen. Wird ihm das gelingen?

    Ich wünsche es mir, aber ich kann keine Anzeichen dafür erkennen. Die Republikaner sind heutzutage so extrem. Vor Biden hat Obama versucht, das Land wieder zu vereinen und zu versöhnen, aber er ist damit vollständig gescheitert. Wahrscheinlich wird auch Biden scheitern, weil die Republikaner keine Versöhnung wollen. Sie wollen wieder an die Macht.

    In Ihrem neuen Buch “Rebellion oder Untergang” beschreiben Sie die Erosion der Demokratie als die dritte große Gefahr für die Menschheit. Welche Rolle spielt Trump dabei?

    Erosion der Demokratie klingt zunächst nicht so gefährlich wie die Gefahr eines Atomkriegs oder die Umweltkatastrophe. Aber sie ist gefährlich, denn nur eine lebendige Demokratie, in der engagierte Bürger sich beteiligen, diskutieren, Programme aufstellen und Politiker unter Druck setzen, diese auch umzusetzen, kann mit den ersten beiden Problemen klarkommen. Aber Trump hat die Regierung entkernt und in ein persönliches Lehen verwandelt. Früher war die Regierung ein funktionierendes System mit verschiedenen Stimmen. Aber Trump hat sie in einen unfassbaren Sumpf der Korruption verwandelt. Das extremste Beispiel haben wir gerade gesehen. Er hat die Wahl nicht akzeptiert, weil er nicht gewonnen hat. Und er hat die Wählerbasis der Republikaner mitgerissen. Eine Mehrheit der republikanischen Wähler glaubt, dass die Wahl gestohlen wurde, weil Trump das gesagt hat. Das sind Symptome des Faschismus.

    In Ihrem Buch rufen Sie zu zivilem Ungehorsam auf. Als Trumps Unterstützer am 6. Jänner zum Kapitol marschierten, nannten sie es auch einen Akt zivilen Ungehorsams…

    Das war kein ziviler Ungehorsam, das war ein Putschversuch. Es war nicht die Art von Putsch, die wir aus den von den USA geführten Bananenrepubliken kennen. Es war nicht so gewalttätig und brutal. Aber es war ein Putschversuch. Viele Historiker vergleichen den Sturm auf das Kapitol mit dem Hitlerputsch von 1923.

    Nicht nur mit dem Sturm auf das Kapitol hat Trump gezeigt, dass er die Fähigkeit hat, Menschen zu manipulieren und zu mobilisieren. Was können Politiker von ihm lernen?

    Sie wollen nicht von Demagogen lernen! Ich bin alt genug, um mich daran zu erinnern, wie ich Hitlers Nürnberger Kundgebungen im Radio gehört habe. Ich habe die Worte nicht verstanden, als ich sechs Jahre alt war, aber ich konnte die Stimmung der massiven Unterstützung für diesen abscheulichen Wahnsinnigen begreifen. Und seit Hitler gab es andere Demagogen. Trump war ein sehr effektiver. Was man von Trump lernen könnte, ist die Fähigkeit, sich in eine brüllende Menge zu stellen, ein Schild hochzuhalten, auf dem steht: “Ich liebe euch! Folgt mir”, während man ihnen mit der anderen Hand das Messer in den Rücken rammt. Trump war in der Lage, effektiv Gifte anzuzapfen, die direkt unter der Oberfläche der amerikanischen Gesellschaft lagern. Weiße Vorherrschaft, Frauenfeindlichkeit, Fremdenfeindlichkeit, extremistische Religion. Und er verstand es wie kaum ein anderer, sie an die Oberfläche zu bringen. Wenn diese Kräfte erst einmal entfesselt sind, sind sie nur noch sehr schwer zu kontrollieren.

They needn't wait for that - Chomsky deserves a rest after his many decades of service to International Communism.

    Noam Chomsky was about the only Western 'intellectual' who wrote and spoke in favor of the Khmer Rouge Cambodian government and Pol Pot. He was noticeably upset when the Communist Vietnamese government invaded and kicked them out. The genocide didn't seem to bother him much.

    Probably the best thing the Vietnamese communists have ever done.

    But ole Noam regarded this as some kind of imperialism. "But communism needs more time to prove itself!" The Viets were seen as being too soft, I guess.

    This very smart guy tried to pass himself as some kind of goofy anarchist but even the left anarchists didn't buy that line. Yes, he might be 92 but are we supposed to give him the "Biden" pass?

    Declassified CIA file reveals that US spies believed that Soviet doctors had ‘perfected’ Extra-Sensory Perception in the 1980s and could transmit thoughts and feelings to subjects

    By Harriet Alexander
    26 Jan 2021

    CIA officials believed that Soviet scientists took part in ‘several successful Extra-Sensory Perception (ESP) experiments’ in the 1980s, according to a recently-declassified document from the time.

    The U.S. spies wrote in an April 1991 memo that they thought the Russians had made remarkable progress in understanding ESP – reception of information not gained through the recognized physical senses, but sensed with the mind…

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9186895/Declassified-CIA-document-reveals-spies-believed-Russians-perfected-extra-sensory-perception.html

    So fucking embarrassing. I guess an organization which recruits political science, foreign service, and area studies majors will not be the best and brightest.

    When you see the caliber of people leading the CIA nowadays, like John Brennan, a Fordham political science major, you can’t help but think that dumbing down the CIA was intentional and either a product of the war on WASPs— when you had Princeton men like Allen Dulles running it— and/or an easy way to infiltrate and control.

    Thanks, #409. I saw this on VDare just a minute ago. The race of the mass murderer has not been reported. As Mr. Fulford wrote, we'd have been told if it were a white guy. I say "told", but I mean it'd have been a 24/7/3-month bout of Infotainment, enough to interrupt "the INSURRECTION!" and "CASES! even.

    This lurid series of events is considered Not National News.

    I don't think it's relevant anymore to debate whether something should be news at the national level. Beyond the local level, there is no news business, there is only a narrative business. That which supports the narrative is presented to the public, that which does not, is not. And that which supports the narrative need not be important or even true, it need only make the desired impression on the receptive portion of the public. That is why this story is not presented to the public while an incident involving a white woman, her dog, and a gay black bird watcher is.

    Hitler war furchtbar, keine Frage. Er verkörperte vielleicht den tiefsten Punkt, an den die Menschheit jemals gesunken ist. Aber hat Hitler daran gearbeitet, die Möglichkeiten für menschliches Leben auf der Erde zu zerstören? Trump hat es getan. Es gibt keine andere politische Figur in der Geschichte, die ihre Hauptanstrengungen dem Versuch gewidmet hat, die Aussichten für menschliches Leben auf der Erde zu zerstören. Nicht Dschingis Khan, nicht Attila der Hunne, niemand, der mir einfällt. Trump war einzigartig. Er hat sehr hart daran gearbeitet, die Nutzung fossiler Brennstoffe zu maximieren und die Regulierungen zu beseitigen, die ihre Auswirkungen etwas abgemildert haben. Es war ein Wettlauf in die Katastrophe. Und die Trump-Regierung wusste genau, was sie tat. Das ist doch Irrsinn!

    Trump hat sich vielleicht nicht um die Konsequenzen seiner Politik gekümmert. Aber es war sicher nicht sein Ziel, die Menschheit auszulöschen. . .

    Ich glaube, dass es ihm egal war. Er wusste, was geschehen würde. Wir haben nur noch wenig Zeit, um die globale Erwärmung einzugrenzen. Vier Jahre, die die Krise beschleunigt haben, sind ein nie dagewesenes Verbrechen.

    Am 20. Jänner wurde Joe Biden als neuer US-Präsident vereidigt. Wird jetzt alles gut?

    Bidens erste Schritte sind ermutigend. Aber es gibt viele Probleme, die zu bewältigen sind, und seine eigenen Programme reichen bei weitem nicht aus, um mit den beiden wichtigsten Problemen fertig zu werden, die das Überleben unserer Spezies gefährden können: die wachsende Bedrohung durch einen Atomkrieg und die Umweltkatastrophe. Die Bedrohung durch einen Atomkrieg hat stark zugenommen.

    Was hat einen verheerenden Atomkrieg wahrscheinlicher gemacht?

    Es gab ein Rüstungskontrollregime, das über fast 60 Jahre mühsam aufgebaut wurde. Aber Trump hat es demontiert. Darüber hinaus haben Trump und andere Akteure Initiativen zur Entwicklung neuer und weitaus gefährlicherer Atomwaffen gestartet. Kombiniert mit provokativen Aktionen in vielen Teilen der Welt und einer Reihe von ungerechtfertigten Angriffen auf den Iran - von Attentaten, Sabotage, Cyberkrieg bis hin zu vernichtenden lähmenden Sanktionen - hat dies die Gefahr eines Atomkriegs stark erhöht.

    Trump hat jetzt nicht mehr die Kontrolle über die Codes für die US-Atomwaffen. Ist die Welt so sicherer geworden?

    Sie ist wahrscheinlich ein bisschen sicherer geworden, denn Trump war unberechenbar. Es wäre doch möglich gewesen, dass er in einem Anfall von psychotischer Angst plötzlich sagt: "OK, ich mache es!" Ich bin sicher, dass die oberste Militärführung der Vereinigten Staaten sehr erleichtert ist, dass die Situation jetzt berechenbarer ist.

    Was wird jetzt aus Trump?

    Trump könnte - vielleicht in Mar-a-Lago - eine Art alternative Schattenregierung errichten. Das halte ich für sehr wahrscheinlich. Er wird sich als der legitime Präsident darstellen, der von einem sehr großen Teil der republikanischen Wählerbasis unterstützt wird. Ich vermute, er wird mit Mitch McConnell zusammenarbeiten, der ein Genie darin ist, das Land unregierbar zu machen. Erinnern Sie sich an McConnell, während der ersten beiden Obama-Jahre? McConnell war der Minderheitenführer im Senat. Er sagte geradeheraus, wir müssen alles tun, um sicherzustellen, dass Obama scheitert. Das bedeutet, alles zu tun, um das Land unregierbar zu machen, so viel Schaden anzurichten, wie wir können. Die Republikaner wollten die so entstehenden Probleme den Demokraten anlasten, um so wieder an die Macht zu kommen. Ich sehe keinen Grund, daran zu zweifeln, dass McConnell jetzt nicht wieder das Gleiche tun wird. Das ist ein schlechter Traum, aber es ist kein unmöglicher Albtraum. Es ist ein sehr denkbares Szenario.

    Könnte ein Amtsenthebungsverfahren dies nicht verhindern?

    Ich schätze die Erfolgsaussichten für ein Impeachment nicht besonders hoch ein. Und das Einzige, was durch das Verfahren erreicht werden würde, wäre, dass Trump kein öffentliches Amt mehr bekleiden dürfte. Das ist zwar immerhin etwas, aber wenn es nicht Trump sein wird, dann wird es jemand sein, der so ähnlich wie Trump ist.

    In seiner Antrittsrede sagte Präsident Biden, eine seiner wichtigsten Aufgaben sei es nun, das Land wieder zu vereinen und zu versöhnen. Wird ihm das gelingen?

    Ich wünsche es mir, aber ich kann keine Anzeichen dafür erkennen. Die Republikaner sind heutzutage so extrem. Vor Biden hat Obama versucht, das Land wieder zu vereinen und zu versöhnen, aber er ist damit vollständig gescheitert. Wahrscheinlich wird auch Biden scheitern, weil die Republikaner keine Versöhnung wollen. Sie wollen wieder an die Macht.

    In Ihrem neuen Buch "Rebellion oder Untergang" beschreiben Sie die Erosion der Demokratie als die dritte große Gefahr für die Menschheit. Welche Rolle spielt Trump dabei?

    Erosion der Demokratie klingt zunächst nicht so gefährlich wie die Gefahr eines Atomkriegs oder die Umweltkatastrophe. Aber sie ist gefährlich, denn nur eine lebendige Demokratie, in der engagierte Bürger sich beteiligen, diskutieren, Programme aufstellen und Politiker unter Druck setzen, diese auch umzusetzen, kann mit den ersten beiden Problemen klarkommen. Aber Trump hat die Regierung entkernt und in ein persönliches Lehen verwandelt. Früher war die Regierung ein funktionierendes System mit verschiedenen Stimmen. Aber Trump hat sie in einen unfassbaren Sumpf der Korruption verwandelt. Das extremste Beispiel haben wir gerade gesehen. Er hat die Wahl nicht akzeptiert, weil er nicht gewonnen hat. Und er hat die Wählerbasis der Republikaner mitgerissen. Eine Mehrheit der republikanischen Wähler glaubt, dass die Wahl gestohlen wurde, weil Trump das gesagt hat. Das sind Symptome des Faschismus.

    In Ihrem Buch rufen Sie zu zivilem Ungehorsam auf. Als Trumps Unterstützer am 6. Jänner zum Kapitol marschierten, nannten sie es auch einen Akt zivilen Ungehorsams...

    Das war kein ziviler Ungehorsam, das war ein Putschversuch. Es war nicht die Art von Putsch, die wir aus den von den USA geführten Bananenrepubliken kennen. Es war nicht so gewalttätig und brutal. Aber es war ein Putschversuch. Viele Historiker vergleichen den Sturm auf das Kapitol mit dem Hitlerputsch von 1923.

    Nicht nur mit dem Sturm auf das Kapitol hat Trump gezeigt, dass er die Fähigkeit hat, Menschen zu manipulieren und zu mobilisieren. Was können Politiker von ihm lernen?

    Sie wollen nicht von Demagogen lernen! Ich bin alt genug, um mich daran zu erinnern, wie ich Hitlers Nürnberger Kundgebungen im Radio gehört habe. Ich habe die Worte nicht verstanden, als ich sechs Jahre alt war, aber ich konnte die Stimmung der massiven Unterstützung für diesen abscheulichen Wahnsinnigen begreifen. Und seit Hitler gab es andere Demagogen. Trump war ein sehr effektiver. Was man von Trump lernen könnte, ist die Fähigkeit, sich in eine brüllende Menge zu stellen, ein Schild hochzuhalten, auf dem steht: "Ich liebe euch! Folgt mir", während man ihnen mit der anderen Hand das Messer in den Rücken rammt. Trump war in der Lage, effektiv Gifte anzuzapfen, die direkt unter der Oberfläche der amerikanischen Gesellschaft lagern. Weiße Vorherrschaft, Frauenfeindlichkeit, Fremdenfeindlichkeit, extremistische Religion. Und er verstand es wie kaum ein anderer, sie an die Oberfläche zu bringen. Wenn diese Kräfte erst einmal entfesselt sind, sind sie nur noch sehr schwer zu kontrollieren.

    Archbishop Chrysostomos of Cyprus was interrogated by an investigative committee today concerning his connections to the Malaysian fugitive criminal financier Low Taek Jho, also known as Jho Low, whom he helped obtain Cypriot citizenship in exchange for a handsome sum (~$360,000).
     
    360k, not too shabby.

    The Archbishop could have driven a harder bargain, but I guess as a man of God he’s not as concerned with the worldy.

    Nope, the Russian military for sure has high supersonic and now hypersonic missiles with very long ranges that make that assertion laughable, whether these weapons were to be fired from surface ships, submarines, or aircraft.

    The US MIC did not catch a clue that the days of carrier battle groups and their aviation wings had been leapfrogged. They were too busy scamming the shit out of the US to give these new realities a thought. If any conflict with Russia, and even with China were to occur, even though those militaries would certainly suffer losses, the US naval forces would be in deep trouble. US submarines might be more survivable, but the surface fleet would be seriously impacted. I take no joy in this, as American lives would be lost, but I would lay the blame at the feet of the politicians and the Perfumed Princes of the Pentagon who put them in an indefensibly untenable position. As with so many things, their arrogance coupled with their poor understanding of the rapidly changing realities of military technology and the evolving military doctrines of potential adversaries points to this strong possibility.

    The younger brother said he was downstairs with his parents when they heard gunfire upstairs. His sister shrieked: ‘He shot them,’ and more shots rang out.

    He said his brother then ‘came downstairs with a draco gun, a handgun that shoots rifle rounds, and started shooting’, the police report states.

    The younger brother ran out of the house as his father followed behind him and opened fire multiple times. It’s believed those shots were the ones neighbors reported hearing.

    And Trump talking about making it easier for him and other high profile people to sue doesn't count. The media's problems have nothing to do with being too reckless in taking on rich, powerful people. And it's all moot because he didn't even try to do that either.

    Canadian lawmakers demand Trudeau labels Proud Boys ‘TERRORIST entity’ in unanimous motion on ‘hate groups’

    The motion was introduced by New Democratic Party (NDP) leader Jagmeet Singh, who celebrated its passage on Monday afternoon, though he voiced a note of caution, stating that Trudeau “has a habit of breaking his promises” and can’t be trusted to “follow through” on the measure.

    Singh moved to add the group to the “terrorist entities” blacklist almost immediately after the riot at the US Capitol on January 6, which saw a crowd of supporters of former president Donald Trump storm the building as Congress convened to certify Joe Biden’s election win. By January 7, the NDP chief launched a petition deeming the Proud Boys a “right-wing extremist group that promotes white supremacist views,” while stating that its members “joined a group armed with deadly weapons as they led an assault on the US Capitol.”
     
    Shurely something from an alternate universe? Maybe "The Man in the High Castle"?

    The Canadian government, for its part, said it is considering the terrorist designation, but has yet to pull the trigger, with Minister of Public Safety Bill Blair stating: “We're working very diligently to ensure that where the evidence is available… that we'll deal appropriately” with the Proud Boys – a group created by Canadian citizen Gavin McInnes, a co-founder of Vice magazine.

    “We're very mindful of ideologically motivated violent extremists, including groups like the Proud Boys. They are white supremacists, anti-Semitics, Islamophobic, misogynist groups. They're all hateful, they're all dangerous,” Blair said.
     
    They also torture puppies and throw cats at passing cars. And troll the hell out of everybody.

    Trump worse than Hitler

    Trump, said Chomsky, is singular in the history of mankind in that he "has been working on the extinguishing (...) of the expectations of human life on earth."



    "Wiener Zeitung": Herr Chomsky, Donald Trump ist nicht mehr Präsident der Vereinigten Staaten. Wie fühlt sich das an?

    Noam Chomsky: Es fühlt sich gut an, diesen bösartigen Tumor los zu sein, der uns hätte zerstören können. Weitere vier Jahre Trump hätten uns vielleicht zu einem irreversiblen Kipppunkt gebracht. Die Trump-Administration war die gefährlichste Regierung der Weltgeschichte.

    Wie bitte? XXXX Gefährlicher als Hitler? XXXXX


    Werbung
    Hitler war furchtbar, keine Frage. Er verkörperte vielleicht den tiefsten Punkt, an den die Menschheit jemals gesunken ist. Aber hat Hitler daran gearbeitet, die Möglichkeiten für menschliches Leben auf der Erde zu zerstören? Trump hat es getan. Es gibt keine andere politische Figur in der Geschichte, die ihre Hauptanstrengungen dem Versuch gewidmet hat, die Aussichten für menschliches Leben auf der Erde zu zerstören. Nicht Dschingis Khan, nicht Attila der Hunne, niemand, der mir einfällt. Trump war einzigartig. Er hat sehr hart daran gearbeitet, die Nutzung fossiler Brennstoffe zu maximieren und die Regulierungen zu beseitigen, die ihre Auswirkungen etwas abgemildert haben. Es war ein Wettlauf in die Katastrophe. Und die Trump-Regierung wusste genau, was sie tat. Das ist doch Irrsinn!

    Trump hat sich vielleicht nicht um die Konsequenzen seiner Politik gekümmert. Aber es war sicher nicht sein Ziel, die Menschheit auszulöschen. . .

    Ich glaube, dass es ihm egal war. Er wusste, was geschehen würde. Wir haben nur noch wenig Zeit, um die globale Erwärmung einzugrenzen. Vier Jahre, die die Krise beschleunigt haben, sind ein nie dagewesenes Verbrechen.

    Cover von Chomskys aktuellem Buch

    Zur Person:

    Noam Chomsky wurde 1928 in Philadelphia (USA) als Sohn jüdischer, russisch-stämmiger Eltern geboren. Er ist emeritierter Professor für Sprachwissenschaft und Philosophie am Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

    Er hat die moderne Linguistik revolutioniert und ist einer der bekanntesten linken Intellektuellen und Politaktivisten. Seit dem Vietnamkrieg ist er scharfer Kritiker der US-Außenpolitik und des globalen Kapitalismus. Sein neues Buch "Rebellion oder Untergang. Ein Aufruf zu globalem Ungehorsam zur Rettung unserer Zivilisation" ist soeben
    im Westend Verlag erschienen.
    Am 20. Jänner wurde Joe Biden als neuer US-Präsident vereidigt. Wird jetzt alles gut?

    Bidens erste Schritte sind ermutigend. Aber es gibt viele Probleme, die zu bewältigen sind, und seine eigenen Programme reichen bei weitem nicht aus, um mit den beiden wichtigsten Problemen fertig zu werden, die das Überleben unserer Spezies gefährden können: die wachsende Bedrohung durch einen Atomkrieg und die Umweltkatastrophe. Die Bedrohung durch einen Atomkrieg hat stark zugenommen.

    Was hat einen verheerenden Atomkrieg wahrscheinlicher gemacht?

    Es gab ein Rüstungskontrollregime, das über fast 60 Jahre mühsam aufgebaut wurde. Aber Trump hat es demontiert. Darüber hinaus haben Trump und andere Akteure Initiativen zur Entwicklung neuer und weitaus gefährlicherer Atomwaffen gestartet. Kombiniert mit provokativen Aktionen in vielen Teilen der Welt und einer Reihe von ungerechtfertigten Angriffen auf den Iran - von Attentaten, Sabotage, Cyberkrieg bis hin zu vernichtenden lähmenden Sanktionen - hat dies die Gefahr eines Atomkriegs stark erhöht.

    Trump hat jetzt nicht mehr die Kontrolle über die Codes für die US-Atomwaffen. Ist die Welt so sicherer geworden?

    Sie ist wahrscheinlich ein bisschen sicherer geworden, denn Trump war unberechenbar. Es wäre doch möglich gewesen, dass er in einem Anfall von psychotischer Angst plötzlich sagt: "OK, ich mache es!" Ich bin sicher, dass die oberste Militärführung der Vereinigten Staaten sehr erleichtert ist, dass die Situation jetzt berechenbarer ist.

    Was wird jetzt aus Trump?

    Trump könnte - vielleicht in Mar-a-Lago - eine Art alternative Schattenregierung errichten. Das halte ich für sehr wahrscheinlich. Er wird sich als der legitime Präsident darstellen, der von einem sehr großen Teil der republikanischen Wählerbasis unterstützt wird. Ich vermute, er wird mit Mitch McConnell zusammenarbeiten, der ein Genie darin ist, das Land unregierbar zu machen. Erinnern Sie sich an McConnell, während der ersten beiden Obama-Jahre? McConnell war der Minderheitenführer im Senat. Er sagte geradeheraus, wir müssen alles tun, um sicherzustellen, dass Obama scheitert. Das bedeutet, alles zu tun, um das Land unregierbar zu machen, so viel Schaden anzurichten, wie wir können. Die Republikaner wollten die so entstehenden Probleme den Demokraten anlasten, um so wieder an die Macht zu kommen. Ich sehe keinen Grund, daran zu zweifeln, dass McConnell jetzt nicht wieder das Gleiche tun wird. Das ist ein schlechter Traum, aber es ist kein unmöglicher Albtraum. Es ist ein sehr denkbares Szenario.

    Könnte ein Amtsenthebungsverfahren dies nicht verhindern?

    Ich schätze die Erfolgsaussichten für ein Impeachment nicht besonders hoch ein. Und das Einzige, was durch das Verfahren erreicht werden würde, wäre, dass Trump kein öffentliches Amt mehr bekleiden dürfte. Das ist zwar immerhin etwas, aber wenn es nicht Trump sein wird, dann wird es jemand sein, der so ähnlich wie Trump ist.

    In seiner Antrittsrede sagte Präsident Biden, eine seiner wichtigsten Aufgaben sei es nun, das Land wieder zu vereinen und zu versöhnen. Wird ihm das gelingen?

    Ich wünsche es mir, aber ich kann keine Anzeichen dafür erkennen. Die Republikaner sind heutzutage so extrem. Vor Biden hat Obama versucht, das Land wieder zu vereinen und zu versöhnen, aber er ist damit vollständig gescheitert. Wahrscheinlich wird auch Biden scheitern, weil die Republikaner keine Versöhnung wollen. Sie wollen wieder an die Macht.

    In Ihrem neuen Buch "Rebellion oder Untergang" beschreiben Sie die Erosion der Demokratie als die dritte große Gefahr für die Menschheit. Welche Rolle spielt Trump dabei?

    Erosion der Demokratie klingt zunächst nicht so gefährlich wie die Gefahr eines Atomkriegs oder die Umweltkatastrophe. Aber sie ist gefährlich, denn nur eine lebendige Demokratie, in der engagierte Bürger sich beteiligen, diskutieren, Programme aufstellen und Politiker unter Druck setzen, diese auch umzusetzen, kann mit den ersten beiden Problemen klarkommen. Aber Trump hat die Regierung entkernt und in ein persönliches Lehen verwandelt. Früher war die Regierung ein funktionierendes System mit verschiedenen Stimmen. Aber Trump hat sie in einen unfassbaren Sumpf der Korruption verwandelt. Das extremste Beispiel haben wir gerade gesehen. Er hat die Wahl nicht akzeptiert, weil er nicht gewonnen hat. Und er hat die Wählerbasis der Republikaner mitgerissen. Eine Mehrheit der republikanischen Wähler glaubt, dass die Wahl gestohlen wurde, weil Trump das gesagt hat. Das sind Symptome des Faschismus.

    In Ihrem Buch rufen Sie zu zivilem Ungehorsam auf. Als Trumps Unterstützer am 6. Jänner zum Kapitol marschierten, nannten sie es auch einen Akt zivilen Ungehorsams...

    Das war kein ziviler Ungehorsam, das war ein Putschversuch. Es war nicht die Art von Putsch, die wir aus den von den USA geführten Bananenrepubliken kennen. Es war nicht so gewalttätig und brutal. Aber es war ein Putschversuch. Viele Historiker vergleichen den Sturm auf das Kapitol mit dem Hitlerputsch von 1923.

    Nicht nur mit dem Sturm auf das Kapitol hat Trump gezeigt, dass er die Fähigkeit hat, Menschen zu manipulieren und zu mobilisieren. Was können Politiker von ihm lernen?

    Sie wollen nicht von Demagogen lernen! Ich bin alt genug, um mich daran zu erinnern, wie ich Hitlers Nürnberger Kundgebungen im Radio gehört habe. Ich habe die Worte nicht verstanden, als ich sechs Jahre alt war, aber ich konnte die Stimmung der massiven Unterstützung für diesen abscheulichen Wahnsinnigen begreifen. Und seit Hitler gab es andere Demagogen. Trump war ein sehr effektiver. Was man von Trump lernen könnte, ist die Fähigkeit, sich in eine brüllende Menge zu stellen, ein Schild hochzuhalten, auf dem steht: "Ich liebe euch! Folgt mir", während man ihnen mit der anderen Hand das Messer in den Rücken rammt. Trump war in der Lage, effektiv Gifte anzuzapfen, die direkt unter der Oberfläche der amerikanischen Gesellschaft lagern. Weiße Vorherrschaft, Frauenfeindlichkeit, Fremdenfeindlichkeit, extremistische Religion. Und er verstand es wie kaum ein anderer, sie an die Oberfläche zu bringen. Wenn diese Kräfte erst einmal entfesselt sind, sind sie nur noch sehr schwer zu kontrollieren.

    Thanks, I hadn't been aware of Hans Magnus Enzensberger but this is interesting.

    My close following of European leftists rather faded out after the late 60s though I did find some of the Situationists interesting, some of their ideas. Most of it was very High Concept but some of that seems to have come to pass recently, i.e. "create situations" that create riots, looting, etc.

    I recall "Danny the Red" Daniel Cohn-Bendit, who was German, but for some reason became active in the 68 Paris upheavals. He was some kind of spokesman/leader for a time. Seemed a tad more intellectual than some. Kicked out of France at one time.

    Last I read he had become a bourgeois Green type, perhaps even being elected to some kind of German parliamentary office. Like most of those kind, getting older and perhaps wiser knocked some of that bullshit out of him. In the US these old commies (like Bernie Sanders) can do well if they are in the right place. Others, including the domestic Red Diaper babies (and terrorist offspring) have been sponsored by Soros and are now pro criminal DAs in California and elsewhere.

    I must note that I have never run across anyone who was a former Communist country citizen who had any affinity for leftwing or even "progressive" style socialism here. Like living in Africa, living under Statism Unleashed tends to cure that disease. Danny Ortega is still the neo Marxist "leader" of Nicaragua, I understand.

Except for the guns he was carrying in each hand, he was completely unarmed. If they had let his mama talk to him he might have surrendered.

It’s not really possible to have a society if the criminals get to decide whether they want to go to jail or not. Low IQ and mentally ill black criminals may not understand this, but you should. You could make an argument that graffiti should be a ticketable offense not involving arrest but I know of nowhere in the world where you would not get arrested for attempted arson.

    His arson was “mostly” non-destructive was by sheer luck or perhaps incompetence. Once a church fire gets going it’s usually very difficult to put out because the church is just one big open space.

Arrests followed by a choice of jail until arraignment or five days of hard labor scrubbing graffiti off walls in lieu of bail …

    Graffiti, forcing civilized people to listen to rap or ebonics, and all the other offensive nonsense pushes the boundary away from civilization and towards negro barbarism. It’s disrespectful and should not be tolerated. (This has not been satire.)

    The younger brother said he was downstairs with his parents when they heard gunfire upstairs. His sister shrieked: 'He shot them,' and more shots rang out.

    He said his brother then 'came downstairs with a draco gun, a handgun that shoots rifle rounds, and started shooting', the police report states.

    The younger brother ran out of the house as his father followed behind him and opened fire multiple times. It's believed those shots were the ones neighbors reported hearing.

    Solomon Adeyemi, Emmanuel Nbanga and his wife Remilekun Olusesi did not enter pleas to fraud, theft and money laundering against Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust when they appeared before magistrates in Worcester yesterday.

    The trust runs Worcestershire Royal Hospital in Worcester and the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch.

    Ralph Robyns-Landricombe, prosecuting, said: “Mr Nbanga was in the employ of the NHS and is alleged to have been stealing theatre equipment from the hospital (the Alexandra) where he worked. As a result of this role he was then organising the procurement to purchase items back from a company established by him and the two other accused.”

    The case involves the alleged theft of single use supplies from operating theatres which were then said to be sold back to the trust.

    It was a widespread phenomenon to embrace the Khmer Rouge. Tout Paris did it (Pol Pot had studied Marxism/Leninism in the philosophical seminar of Louis Althusser at the most elitist of all french university colleges). German leftwinger Hans Magnus Enzensberger did write a few dry remarks about this subject - especially with regard to Pol Pot's WEstern Roots, so to speak, in the mid-seventies, when he slowly but steadily started to turn into a bougois renegade, hehe maybe the best of this pack, for sure one of the brightest of it - and most likely the best writer amongst them: Clear, unapologetic, to the point, playful, thoughtful, with lots of historical depths and cultural echoes from all over the world.

    360k, not too shabby.

    Low stole more than $4.5 billion from the Malaysian state investment program,

    The Archbishop could have driven a harder bargain, but I guess as a man of God he’s not as concerned with the worldy.

    thus, as Politis notes, the money given to the Archdiocese in fact belongs to the Malaysian people and has yet to be returned.

    OT - Noam Chomsky in an interview with the Vienna daily Wiener Zeitung

    Trump worse than Hitler

    Trump, said Chomsky, is singular in the history of mankind in that he "has been working on the extinguishing (...) of the expectations of human life on earth."



    "Wiener Zeitung": Herr Chomsky, Donald Trump ist nicht mehr Präsident der Vereinigten Staaten. Wie fühlt sich das an?

    Noam Chomsky: Es fühlt sich gut an, diesen bösartigen Tumor los zu sein, der uns hätte zerstören können. Weitere vier Jahre Trump hätten uns vielleicht zu einem irreversiblen Kipppunkt gebracht. Die Trump-Administration war die gefährlichste Regierung der Weltgeschichte.

    Wie bitte? XXXX Gefährlicher als Hitler? XXXXX


    Werbung
    Hitler war furchtbar, keine Frage. Er verkörperte vielleicht den tiefsten Punkt, an den die Menschheit jemals gesunken ist. Aber hat Hitler daran gearbeitet, die Möglichkeiten für menschliches Leben auf der Erde zu zerstören? Trump hat es getan. Es gibt keine andere politische Figur in der Geschichte, die ihre Hauptanstrengungen dem Versuch gewidmet hat, die Aussichten für menschliches Leben auf der Erde zu zerstören. Nicht Dschingis Khan, nicht Attila der Hunne, niemand, der mir einfällt. Trump war einzigartig. Er hat sehr hart daran gearbeitet, die Nutzung fossiler Brennstoffe zu maximieren und die Regulierungen zu beseitigen, die ihre Auswirkungen etwas abgemildert haben. Es war ein Wettlauf in die Katastrophe. Und die Trump-Regierung wusste genau, was sie tat. Das ist doch Irrsinn!

    Trump hat sich vielleicht nicht um die Konsequenzen seiner Politik gekümmert. Aber es war sicher nicht sein Ziel, die Menschheit auszulöschen. . .

    Ich glaube, dass es ihm egal war. Er wusste, was geschehen würde. Wir haben nur noch wenig Zeit, um die globale Erwärmung einzugrenzen. Vier Jahre, die die Krise beschleunigt haben, sind ein nie dagewesenes Verbrechen.

    Cover von Chomskys aktuellem Buch

    Zur Person:

    Noam Chomsky wurde 1928 in Philadelphia (USA) als Sohn jüdischer, russisch-stämmiger Eltern geboren. Er ist emeritierter Professor für Sprachwissenschaft und Philosophie am Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

    Er hat die moderne Linguistik revolutioniert und ist einer der bekanntesten linken Intellektuellen und Politaktivisten. Seit dem Vietnamkrieg ist er scharfer Kritiker der US-Außenpolitik und des globalen Kapitalismus. Sein neues Buch "Rebellion oder Untergang. Ein Aufruf zu globalem Ungehorsam zur Rettung unserer Zivilisation" ist soeben
    im Westend Verlag erschienen.
    Am 20. Jänner wurde Joe Biden als neuer US-Präsident vereidigt. Wird jetzt alles gut?

    Bidens erste Schritte sind ermutigend. Aber es gibt viele Probleme, die zu bewältigen sind, und seine eigenen Programme reichen bei weitem nicht aus, um mit den beiden wichtigsten Problemen fertig zu werden, die das Überleben unserer Spezies gefährden können: die wachsende Bedrohung durch einen Atomkrieg und die Umweltkatastrophe. Die Bedrohung durch einen Atomkrieg hat stark zugenommen.

    Was hat einen verheerenden Atomkrieg wahrscheinlicher gemacht?

    Es gab ein Rüstungskontrollregime, das über fast 60 Jahre mühsam aufgebaut wurde. Aber Trump hat es demontiert. Darüber hinaus haben Trump und andere Akteure Initiativen zur Entwicklung neuer und weitaus gefährlicherer Atomwaffen gestartet. Kombiniert mit provokativen Aktionen in vielen Teilen der Welt und einer Reihe von ungerechtfertigten Angriffen auf den Iran - von Attentaten, Sabotage, Cyberkrieg bis hin zu vernichtenden lähmenden Sanktionen - hat dies die Gefahr eines Atomkriegs stark erhöht.

    Trump hat jetzt nicht mehr die Kontrolle über die Codes für die US-Atomwaffen. Ist die Welt so sicherer geworden?

    Sie ist wahrscheinlich ein bisschen sicherer geworden, denn Trump war unberechenbar. Es wäre doch möglich gewesen, dass er in einem Anfall von psychotischer Angst plötzlich sagt: "OK, ich mache es!" Ich bin sicher, dass die oberste Militärführung der Vereinigten Staaten sehr erleichtert ist, dass die Situation jetzt berechenbarer ist.

    Was wird jetzt aus Trump?

    Trump könnte - vielleicht in Mar-a-Lago - eine Art alternative Schattenregierung errichten. Das halte ich für sehr wahrscheinlich. Er wird sich als der legitime Präsident darstellen, der von einem sehr großen Teil der republikanischen Wählerbasis unterstützt wird. Ich vermute, er wird mit Mitch McConnell zusammenarbeiten, der ein Genie darin ist, das Land unregierbar zu machen. Erinnern Sie sich an McConnell, während der ersten beiden Obama-Jahre? McConnell war der Minderheitenführer im Senat. Er sagte geradeheraus, wir müssen alles tun, um sicherzustellen, dass Obama scheitert. Das bedeutet, alles zu tun, um das Land unregierbar zu machen, so viel Schaden anzurichten, wie wir können. Die Republikaner wollten die so entstehenden Probleme den Demokraten anlasten, um so wieder an die Macht zu kommen. Ich sehe keinen Grund, daran zu zweifeln, dass McConnell jetzt nicht wieder das Gleiche tun wird. Das ist ein schlechter Traum, aber es ist kein unmöglicher Albtraum. Es ist ein sehr denkbares Szenario.

    Könnte ein Amtsenthebungsverfahren dies nicht verhindern?

    Ich schätze die Erfolgsaussichten für ein Impeachment nicht besonders hoch ein. Und das Einzige, was durch das Verfahren erreicht werden würde, wäre, dass Trump kein öffentliches Amt mehr bekleiden dürfte. Das ist zwar immerhin etwas, aber wenn es nicht Trump sein wird, dann wird es jemand sein, der so ähnlich wie Trump ist.

    In seiner Antrittsrede sagte Präsident Biden, eine seiner wichtigsten Aufgaben sei es nun, das Land wieder zu vereinen und zu versöhnen. Wird ihm das gelingen?

    Ich wünsche es mir, aber ich kann keine Anzeichen dafür erkennen. Die Republikaner sind heutzutage so extrem. Vor Biden hat Obama versucht, das Land wieder zu vereinen und zu versöhnen, aber er ist damit vollständig gescheitert. Wahrscheinlich wird auch Biden scheitern, weil die Republikaner keine Versöhnung wollen. Sie wollen wieder an die Macht.

    In Ihrem neuen Buch "Rebellion oder Untergang" beschreiben Sie die Erosion der Demokratie als die dritte große Gefahr für die Menschheit. Welche Rolle spielt Trump dabei?

    Erosion der Demokratie klingt zunächst nicht so gefährlich wie die Gefahr eines Atomkriegs oder die Umweltkatastrophe. Aber sie ist gefährlich, denn nur eine lebendige Demokratie, in der engagierte Bürger sich beteiligen, diskutieren, Programme aufstellen und Politiker unter Druck setzen, diese auch umzusetzen, kann mit den ersten beiden Problemen klarkommen. Aber Trump hat die Regierung entkernt und in ein persönliches Lehen verwandelt. Früher war die Regierung ein funktionierendes System mit verschiedenen Stimmen. Aber Trump hat sie in einen unfassbaren Sumpf der Korruption verwandelt. Das extremste Beispiel haben wir gerade gesehen. Er hat die Wahl nicht akzeptiert, weil er nicht gewonnen hat. Und er hat die Wählerbasis der Republikaner mitgerissen. Eine Mehrheit der republikanischen Wähler glaubt, dass die Wahl gestohlen wurde, weil Trump das gesagt hat. Das sind Symptome des Faschismus.

    In Ihrem Buch rufen Sie zu zivilem Ungehorsam auf. Als Trumps Unterstützer am 6. Jänner zum Kapitol marschierten, nannten sie es auch einen Akt zivilen Ungehorsams...

    Das war kein ziviler Ungehorsam, das war ein Putschversuch. Es war nicht die Art von Putsch, die wir aus den von den USA geführten Bananenrepubliken kennen. Es war nicht so gewalttätig und brutal. Aber es war ein Putschversuch. Viele Historiker vergleichen den Sturm auf das Kapitol mit dem Hitlerputsch von 1923.

    Nicht nur mit dem Sturm auf das Kapitol hat Trump gezeigt, dass er die Fähigkeit hat, Menschen zu manipulieren und zu mobilisieren. Was können Politiker von ihm lernen?

    Sie wollen nicht von Demagogen lernen! Ich bin alt genug, um mich daran zu erinnern, wie ich Hitlers Nürnberger Kundgebungen im Radio gehört habe. Ich habe die Worte nicht verstanden, als ich sechs Jahre alt war, aber ich konnte die Stimmung der massiven Unterstützung für diesen abscheulichen Wahnsinnigen begreifen. Und seit Hitler gab es andere Demagogen. Trump war ein sehr effektiver. Was man von Trump lernen könnte, ist die Fähigkeit, sich in eine brüllende Menge zu stellen, ein Schild hochzuhalten, auf dem steht: "Ich liebe euch! Folgt mir", während man ihnen mit der anderen Hand das Messer in den Rücken rammt. Trump war in der Lage, effektiv Gifte anzuzapfen, die direkt unter der Oberfläche der amerikanischen Gesellschaft lagern. Weiße Vorherrschaft, Frauenfeindlichkeit, Fremdenfeindlichkeit, extremistische Religion. Und er verstand es wie kaum ein anderer, sie an die Oberfläche zu bringen. Wenn diese Kräfte erst einmal entfesselt sind, sind sie nur noch sehr schwer zu kontrollieren.

    The White House said the presidential memorandum on housing directs HUD to "examine the effects of the Trump administration's regulatory actions that undermined fair housing policies and laws," and the measure also "recognizes the central role the federal government has played implementing housing policies across the United States, from redlining to mortgage discrimination to destructive federal highway construction, that have had racially discriminatory impacts."

    But you know, does anyone in this whole nation think we’re not all better off if that were to happen? Just imagine if instead of denying millions of Americans the ability to own a home and build generational wealth, we made it possible for them to buy a home, their first home, and began to build equity, to provide for their families and send their children off to school. Does anyone doubt that the whole nation would be better off? Just imagine, instead of denying millions of young entrepreneurs the ability to access capital, we made it possible to take their dream to market, create jobs, reinvest in their own communities. Does anyone doubt this whole nation wouldn’t be better off? Just imagine, if more incredibly creative and innovative… how much more creative and innovative we’d be if this nation held the historic black colleges and universities to the same opportunities and minority serving institutions that had the same funding and resources of public universities to compete for jobs and industries of the future.

    Just ask the first HBCU graduate elected as vice president if that’s not true. But to do this, I believe this nation and this government need to change their whole approach to the issue of racial equity. Yes, we need criminal justice reform, but that isn’t nearly enough. We need to open the promise of America to every American. And that means we need to make the issue of racial equity not just an issue for any one department of government. It has to be the business of a whole of government. That’s why I issued in one of the first days, my whole government executive order that will, for the first time advance, equity for all throughout our federal policies and institutions. It focuses on the full range of communities who have been long underserved and overlooked, people of color, Americans with disabilities, LGBTQ Americans, religious minorities, rural urban, suburban communities facing persistent poverty.

Except for the guns he was carrying in each hand, he was completely unarmed. If they had let his mama talk to him he might have surrendered.

    After the tear gas was deployed, Harris exited the house with a firearm in both hands and fired shots in several directions.

Yes she had been able to talk him down before but he had clearly reached a new level of crazy.

    They should have had snipers trained on all the exits and told him via bullhorn to come out unarmed and with his hands up. When he emerged holding a gun they should have shot him on sight and not given him a chance to kill a cop. Now the crazy dude is dead anyway but another life has been lost for no good reason. The dude was crazy but not crazy enough to not be able to aim and shoot a gun. Someone like that has to be put down like a rabid dog. Once you come out of the door waving a gun you've forfeited your life. I feel bad for the mom but the family had had 20 years to seek mental health treatment for him. Now it was too late.

  131. OT – very encouraging vaccine news from Israel –

    On Monday, the Israeli Health Ministry and Maccabi released new data on people who had received both doses of the vaccine, showing extremely high rates of effectiveness.

    The ministry found that out of 428,000 Israelis who had received their second doses, a week later only 63, or 0.014 percent, had contracted the virus. Similarly, the Maccabi data showed that more than a week after having received the second dose, only 20 out of roughly 128,600 people, about 0.01 percent, had contracted the virus.

    In clinical trials the Pfizer vaccine proved 95 percent effective after two doses in preventing coronavirus infection in people without evidence of previous infection. The Israeli results, if they hold up, suggest the efficacy could be even higher, though rigorous comparisons to unvaccinated people have not yet been published.

    “This is very encouraging data,” Dr. Zohar said. “We will monitor these patients closely in order to examine if they continue to suffer from mild symptoms only and do not develop complications as a result of the virus.”

    Of those who still contracted the virus after being vaccinated, none died or became seriously ill so even in the rare cases where it doesn’t prevent infection it seems to reduce the severity of the case.

    "very encouraging vaccine news from Israel..."

    Good for them, but even so, only about 1/7th of Israel's population has been given the second dose and most of those are still waiting for the antibodies from that to get to reach their peak (two weeks ago the fraction who had received a second shot was minuscule). Their previous approach was to try and maximize the number of people with one shot, as in the UK, but that didn't work out nearly as well as hoped.

    In other words, there's still a ways to go before enough antibodies are present in the general population so as to really slow this thing down.

    Throw in flashbangs or maybe smoke and then assault the place ok, at least it's contained within a building. In this case they raised what they sowed.

    from the article in the OP:

    Officers reportedly tried to negotiate for two hours with Harris. However, these attempts were unsuccessful. The SWAT team fired tear gas into the house in an attempt to get Harris to exit the home and surrender. Stalker was not a member of the SWAT team but was doing perimeter security work during the standoff.

    After the tear gas was deployed, Harris exited the house with a firearm in both hands and fired shots in several directions.

    One shot struck Stalker in the head. Stalker was taken to Mercy-Health St. Vincent Medical Center but succumbed to his injuries.

    You should never allow someone, even the crazy dude’s mother, even if she signs 7 releases, to go into a building with an armed crazy dude. They tried negotiating with him and it was clear that he was not in touch with reality. He could have mistaken his mom for a space alien or a white person and shot her too. Yes she had been able to talk him down before but he had clearly reached a new level of crazy.

    They should have had snipers trained on all the exits and told him via bullhorn to come out unarmed and with his hands up. When he emerged holding a gun they should have shot him on sight and not given him a chance to kill a cop. Now the crazy dude is dead anyway but another life has been lost for no good reason. The dude was crazy but not crazy enough to not be able to aim and shoot a gun. Someone like that has to be put down like a rabid dog. Once you come out of the door waving a gun you’ve forfeited your life. I feel bad for the mom but the family had had 20 years to seek mental health treatment for him. Now it was too late.

    Yes, hard men have to make hard decisions, "you WANT me on that wall!" etc. Sometimes that's true and in those cases i'm for it, but i don't think it's particularly applicable here.

    There's certainly a risk to the mom. As has been covered here often, most people who get shot at aren't hit and most people who are hit aren't killed. He may have shot at her, and if so he may have hit her, and if so she might have died. I don't know the exact risk of any of those things is (and neither do you, nor do the police) but, imo, it's of a level that if the mom wanted to try it she should be allowed to.


    They should have had snipers trained on all the exits and told him via bullhorn to come out unarmed and with his hands up. When he emerged holding a gun they should have shot him on sight and not given him a chance to kill a cop. Now the crazy dude is dead anyway...
     
    Yelling at people having a mental episode, through a bullhorn or otherwise, and then shooting them when they don't comply with your commands makes little sense. We've seen this repeatedly with cops dealing with crazy people, but in many cases it's the only tool/training that the cops have and it's inadequate.

    In this case it appears it's basically what they did, but then they also added teargas to get him to come out. As mentioned in my original message, i have no idea why they expected a positive outcome from that.

    As in many of these encounters (at least the ones that make the news; i'm guessing there are many where the cops DO de-escalate things instead), this was a legally acceptable, but hardly laudable action by police.

    The White House said the presidential memorandum on housing directs HUD to “examine the effects of the Trump administration’s regulatory actions that undermined fair housing policies and laws,” and the measure also “recognizes the central role the federal government has played implementing housing policies across the United States, from redlining to mortgage discrimination to destructive federal highway construction, that have had racially discriminatory impacts.”

    I assume this means putting Section 8 housing in white suburbs. I hope those suburban white ladies enjoy their new neighbors.

    Canadian lawmakers demand Trudeau labels Proud Boys ‘TERRORIST entity’ in unanimous motion on ‘hate groups’

    The motion was introduced by New Democratic Party (NDP) leader Jagmeet Singh, who celebrated its passage on Monday afternoon, though he voiced a note of caution, stating that Trudeau “has a habit of breaking his promises” and can’t be trusted to “follow through” on the measure.

    Singh moved to add the group to the “terrorist entities” blacklist almost immediately after the riot at the US Capitol on January 6, which saw a crowd of supporters of former president Donald Trump storm the building as Congress convened to certify Joe Biden’s election win. By January 7, the NDP chief launched a petition deeming the Proud Boys a “right-wing extremist group that promotes white supremacist views,” while stating that its members “joined a group armed with deadly weapons as they led an assault on the US Capitol.”
     
    Shurely something from an alternate universe? Maybe "The Man in the High Castle"?

    The Canadian government, for its part, said it is considering the terrorist designation, but has yet to pull the trigger, with Minister of Public Safety Bill Blair stating: “We're working very diligently to ensure that where the evidence is available… that we'll deal appropriately” with the Proud Boys – a group created by Canadian citizen Gavin McInnes, a co-founder of Vice magazine.

    “We're very mindful of ideologically motivated violent extremists, including groups like the Proud Boys. They are white supremacists, anti-Semitics, Islamophobic, misogynist groups. They're all hateful, they're all dangerous,” Blair said.

    Declassified CIA file reveals that US spies believed that Soviet doctors had 'perfected' Extra-Sensory Perception in the 1980s and could transmit thoughts and feelings to subjects

    By Harriet Alexander
    26 Jan 2021

    CIA officials believed that Soviet scientists took part in 'several successful Extra-Sensory Perception (ESP) experiments' in the 1980s, according to a recently-declassified document from the time.

    The U.S. spies wrote in an April 1991 memo that they thought the Russians had made remarkable progress in understanding ESP - reception of information not gained through the recognized physical senses, but sensed with the mind...

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9186895/Declassified-CIA-document-reveals-spies-believed-Russians-perfected-extra-sensory-perception.html
     
    So fucking embarrassing. I guess an organization which recruits political science, foreign service, and area studies majors will not be the best and brightest.

    When you see the caliber of people leading the CIA nowadays, like John Brennan, a Fordham political science major, you can’t help but think that dumbing down the CIA was intentional and either a product of the war on WASPs— when you had Princeton men like Allen Dulles running it— and/or an easy way to infiltrate and control.

    “False” used to mean “demonstrably not true”.
    True and false, as commonly used today, are notoriously slippery words, and probably shouldn't be used unless carefully defined and qualified. One man's "truth", in the common usage, is another man's "hotly contested opinion". I agree that the words should be reserved for phenomena that can be repeatedly and publicly observed and demonstrated. "Drop a brick from 6 feet above the ground and it will fall": true. "All men are created equal": an opinion.

You're absolutely right - this story should have national prominence as the story of yet one more black man murdered by police. Yes it's true that he had just shot a white cop in the head but that was only one shot. There was no need for the cops to racistly shoot him 17 times. Except for the guns he was carrying in each hand, he was completely unarmed. If they had let his mama talk to him he might have surrendered.

    But you know, does anyone in this whole nation think we’re not all better off if that were to happen? Just imagine if instead of denying millions of Americans the ability to own a home and build generational wealth, we made it possible for them to buy a home, their first home, and began to build equity, to provide for their families and send their children off to school. Does anyone doubt that the whole nation would be better off? Just imagine, instead of denying millions of young entrepreneurs the ability to access capital, we made it possible to take their dream to market, create jobs, reinvest in their own communities. Does anyone doubt this whole nation wouldn’t be better off? Just imagine, if more incredibly creative and innovative… how much more creative and innovative we’d be if this nation held the historic black colleges and universities to the same opportunities and minority serving institutions that had the same funding and resources of public universities to compete for jobs and industries of the future.

    Just ask the first HBCU graduate elected as vice president if that’s not true. But to do this, I believe this nation and this government need to change their whole approach to the issue of racial equity. Yes, we need criminal justice reform, but that isn’t nearly enough. We need to open the promise of America to every American. And that means we need to make the issue of racial equity not just an issue for any one department of government. It has to be the business of a whole of government. That’s why I issued in one of the first days, my whole government executive order that will, for the first time advance, equity for all throughout our federal policies and institutions. It focuses on the full range of communities who have been long underserved and overlooked, people of color, Americans with disabilities, LGBTQ Americans, religious minorities, rural urban, suburban communities facing persistent poverty.

    Hopefully you are joking. Certain black people seem to have the idea that being arrested should be optional on their part - they don't have to be arrested if they don't feel like it. It's not really possible to have a society if the criminals get to decide whether they want to go to jail or not. Low IQ and mentally ill black criminals may not understand this, but you should. You could make an argument that graffiti should be a ticketable offense not involving arrest but I know of nowhere in the world where you would not get arrested for attempted arson.

    His arson was "mostly" non-destructive was by sheer luck or perhaps incompetence. Once a church fire gets going it's usually very difficult to put out because the church is just one big open space. The fact that millions of $ of property was not destroyed and fire fighters were not injured or killed was not due to lack of trying.

    You can't make that sh-t up.

    That's the wet dream of anybody from the CPLN to al Qaeda.....seriously 1 dude can destroy a billion dollar boat with a zippo & some paint thinner or other readily available accelerant....now imagine some Islamic terror group or say the Chinese military putting moles in our navy & then systematically spacing them between ships....they could destroy half our naval capacity in WEEKS with little more than say 1 to 3 suicidal lunatics with matches & fuel in a single week....

    Meanwhile our Navy is worried about providing housing to lesbian officers & feature articles on the art of fudge packing at sea...

    But you know, does anyone in this whole nation think we’re not all better off if that were to happen? Just imagine if instead of denying millions of Americans the ability to own a home and build generational wealth, we made it possible for them to buy a home, their first home, and began to build equity, to provide for their families and send their children off to school. Does anyone doubt that the whole nation would be better off? Just imagine, instead of denying millions of young entrepreneurs the ability to access capital, we made it possible to take their dream to market, create jobs, reinvest in their own communities. Does anyone doubt this whole nation wouldn’t be better off? Just imagine, if more incredibly creative and innovative… how much more creative and innovative we’d be if this nation held the historic black colleges and universities to the same opportunities and minority serving institutions that had the same funding and resources of public universities to compete for jobs and industries of the future.

    Just ask the first HBCU graduate elected as vice president if that’s not true. But to do this, I believe this nation and this government need to change their whole approach to the issue of racial equity. Yes, we need criminal justice reform, but that isn’t nearly enough. We need to open the promise of America to every American. And that means we need to make the issue of racial equity not just an issue for any one department of government. It has to be the business of a whole of government. That’s why I issued in one of the first days, my whole government executive order that will, for the first time advance, equity for all throughout our federal policies and institutions. It focuses on the full range of communities who have been long underserved and overlooked, people of color, Americans with disabilities, LGBTQ Americans, religious minorities, rural urban, suburban communities facing persistent poverty.

This actually happened. No “journalists” asked him if he was drunk when he said that.

    Nope, the Russian military for sure has high supersonic and now hypersonic missiles with very long ranges that make that assertion laughable, whether these weapons were to be fired from surface ships, submarines, or aircraft.

    The US MIC did not catch a clue that the days of carrier battle groups and their aviation wings had been leapfrogged. They were too busy scamming the shit out of the US to give these new realities a thought. If any conflict with Russia, and even with China were to occur, even though those militaries would certainly suffer losses, the US naval forces would be in deep trouble. US submarines might be more survivable, but the surface fleet would be seriously impacted. I take no joy in this, as American lives would be lost, but I would lay the blame at the feet of the politicians and the Perfumed Princes of the Pentagon who put them in an indefensibly untenable position. As with so many things, their arrogance coupled with their poor understanding of the rapidly changing realities of military technology and the evolving military doctrines of potential adversaries points to this strong possibility.

    OT - very encouraging vaccine news from Israel -

    On Monday, the Israeli Health Ministry and Maccabi released new data on people who had received both doses of the vaccine, showing extremely high rates of effectiveness.

    The ministry found that out of 428,000 Israelis who had received their second doses, a week later only 63, or 0.014 percent, had contracted the virus. Similarly, the Maccabi data showed that more than a week after having received the second dose, only 20 out of roughly 128,600 people, about 0.01 percent, had contracted the virus.

    In clinical trials the Pfizer vaccine proved 95 percent effective after two doses in preventing coronavirus infection in people without evidence of previous infection. The Israeli results, if they hold up, suggest the efficacy could be even higher, though rigorous comparisons to unvaccinated people have not yet been published.

    “This is very encouraging data,” Dr. Zohar said. “We will monitor these patients closely in order to examine if they continue to suffer from mild symptoms only and do not develop complications as a result of the virus.”
     
    Of those who still contracted the virus after being vaccinated, none died or became seriously ill so even in the rare cases where it doesn't prevent infection it seems to reduce the severity of the case.

    Replies: @HA, @Steve Sailer

    “very encouraging vaccine news from Israel…”

    Good for them, but even so, only about 1/7th of Israel’s population has been given the second dose and most of those are still waiting for the antibodies from that to get to reach their peak (two weeks ago the fraction who had received a second shot was minuscule). Their previous approach was to try and maximize the number of people with one shot, as in the UK, but that didn’t work out nearly as well as hoped.

    In other words, there’s still a ways to go before enough antibodies are present in the general population so as to really slow this thing down.

    You should never allow someone, even the crazy dude's mother, even if she signs 7 releases, to go into a building with an armed crazy dude. They tried negotiating with him and it was clear that he was not in touch with reality. He could have mistaken his mom for a space alien or a white person and shot her too. Yes she had been able to talk him down before but he had clearly reached a new level of crazy.

    They should have had snipers trained on all the exits and told him via bullhorn to come out unarmed and with his hands up. When he emerged holding a gun they should have shot him on sight and not given him a chance to kill a cop. Now the crazy dude is dead anyway but another life has been lost for no good reason. The dude was crazy but not crazy enough to not be able to aim and shoot a gun. Someone like that has to be put down like a rabid dog. Once you come out of the door waving a gun you've forfeited your life. I feel bad for the mom but the family had had 20 years to seek mental health treatment for him. Now it was too late.

    There’s certainly a risk to the mom. As has been covered here often, most people who get shot at aren’t hit and most people who are hit aren’t killed. He may have shot at her, and if so he may have hit her, and if so she might have died. I don’t know the exact risk of any of those things is (and neither do you, nor do the police) but, imo, it’s of a level that if the mom wanted to try it she should be allowed to.

    They should have had snipers trained on all the exits and told him via bullhorn to come out unarmed and with his hands up. When he emerged holding a gun they should have shot him on sight and not given him a chance to kill a cop. Now the crazy dude is dead anyway…

    Yelling at people having a mental episode, through a bullhorn or otherwise, and then shooting them when they don’t comply with your commands makes little sense. We’ve seen this repeatedly with cops dealing with crazy people, but in many cases it’s the only tool/training that the cops have and it’s inadequate.

    In this case it appears it’s basically what they did, but then they also added teargas to get him to come out. As mentioned in my original message, i have no idea why they expected a positive outcome from that.

    Just coincidentally happened across this bodycam footage from one such shooting two weeks ago.

    Cop is sent to the house of a mentally unwell (but non-violent) person and ends up killing him for not following instructions.

    The cop seems like a decent enough guy, and things start off alright; he makes a good decision to wait outside for back-up. Unfortunately instead of backing off when the guy walks outside and starts praying at him and slowly walking towards him (the dude was an actual preacher apparently) the cop goes with the familiar script of:
    - yelling at the guy to get compliance
    - when not getting compliance use force. in this case a taser.
    - when that fails , shoot the guy.

As a result of this role he was then organising the procurement to purchase items back from a company established by him and the two other accused.”

    This cop is a victim of this system too. He did the only thing he was trained to do and he’s going to have to live with this for the rest of his life.

    In this case it’s pretty clear to me there was no need to taser the guy which wouldn’t have then led to shooting him.

    "of 428,000 Israelis who had received their second doses, a week later only 63, or 0.014 percent, had contracted the virus"

    Did they offer a control group of the uninoculated to compare that number to?

    Replies: @Jack D

    Yes, among the vaccinated the infection rate per week was 0.015%. Among the unvaccinated it is 0.65% per week. So a 97% reduction – even better than the trial results.

    VoxDay is an occultist. So it’s a pointless conversation. He’ll see a cloud floating by and claim it’s a super secret signal from Donald Trump that he’s still president.

    It’s true the boomer generation was pathetic and let their descendants down. But so was the so-called “greatest generation” which had the power to end all this but failed to do so.

    It’s no accident that the cowardly “greatest generation” raised the weakest generation called the boomers. Both generations accept that we must submit to federal authorities, whether it’s the military or some androgynous professor.

    If you remove the traditional Christian religion of whites, then you remove any religious justification for whites to be ethical or play fair. Whites unrestrained by religion would turn pure Darwin and commit genocide against blacks and Hispanics. Heck, they'd bring slavery back without a qualm.

    Without religion, you get the practical politics--and public policy--of a Hitler.

    The left despises the Christian church. They shouldn't. Christian training is the only thing that keeps leftists from being dropped out of airplanes over the Pacific ocean with cinderblocks tied to their ankles for being an effing nuisance.

    Mostly true, however Christianity condoned slavery far longer than it has condemned it.

    I’m not a theologian (INAT), however I assume modern Christians who claim their religion is anti-slavery are engaging in creative interpretation of scripture.

    "False" used to mean "demonstrably not true". But in the modern, Leftist sense, "false" means "a conclusion that I don't like" or "any opinion that is different than mine".

    “False” used to mean “demonstrably not true”.
    True and false, as commonly used today, are notoriously slippery words, and probably shouldn’t be used unless carefully defined and qualified. One man’s “truth”, in the common usage, is another man’s “hotly contested opinion”. I agree that the words should be reserved for phenomena that can be repeatedly and publicly observed and demonstrated. “Drop a brick from 6 feet above the ground and it will fall”: true. “All men are created equal”: an opinion.

    Can’t agree with this.

    Christianity codifies what most people consider good behavior. Atheists are not particularly known for being total a-holes (though some certainly are.)

    We got along in BC without it.

    I would argue that Christianity is a better religion than others; it leads to better outcomes for those who follow. Without it, we don’t get Armageddon, we get lesser outcomes.

    A gang is accused of fleecing Worcestershire’s hospitals of more than £322,000 – with the NHS already on its knees because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

    Solomon Adeyemi, Emmanuel Nbanga and his wife Remilekun Olusesi did not enter pleas to fraud, theft and money laundering against Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust when they appeared before magistrates in Worcester yesterday.

    The trust runs Worcestershire Royal Hospital in Worcester and the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch.

    Ralph Robyns-Landricombe, prosecuting, said: “Mr Nbanga was in the employ of the NHS and is alleged to have been stealing theatre equipment from the hospital (the Alexandra) where he worked. As a result of this role he was then organising the procurement to purchase items back from a company established by him and the two other accused.”

    The case involves the alleged theft of single use supplies from operating theatres which were then said to be sold back to the trust.

    It’s ironic that the founder of the NHS, William Beveridge, was a member of the Eugenics Society.

    From Wikipedia:

    “On the day the House of Commons met to debate the Beveridge Report in 1943, its author slipped out of the gallery early in the evening to address a meeting of the Eugenics Society at the Mansion House. … His report he was keen to reassure them, was eugenic in intent and would prove so in effect. …”

    Few things can have a more dysgenic effect on a country than a welfare state that exerts a pull that can be felt in every corner of the planet.

    How the Far East Was Lost: American Policy and the Creation of Communist China, 1941-1949 Paperback – April 28, 2012
    by Anthony Kubek (Author)

    FDR’s regime was full of Soviet agents like Alger Hiss, White etc…. Stalin was always afraid of his rear in the Far East and his biggest fear was the Japanese Empire, it was in his interest that the Japanese Empire could be quagmired in a war with the Nationalist Chinese KMT as well as a war in between the USA and the Japanese Empire.
    On April 6, 1927 the troops of Chang Tso-lin raided the Soviet Embassy in Peking and discovered documents that abundantly proved the Russians were spreading propaganda and planning to establish Communism in China.

    The Japanese saw this situation very clearly, and Japan to protect her own security, began to take measures to check the flow of the Red tide. The Japanese statesmen understood the Communist threat in the Far East far better than any other nation could have. It was clear to the Japanese that unless bastions of defense were built in Manchuria and Inner Mongolia, Communism would spread all of North China and seriously threaten the security of Japan.

    Secretary of State Henry L. Stimson directed a long verbal barrage against the Japanese. When FDR became President in 1933, he supported the “Stimson Doctrine” without reservation. It is significant that during the first Cabinet meeting of the Roosevelt Administration, March 7, 1933 the eventuality of war with Japan was carefully considered. On October 5,1937, FDR made a famous address at Chicago, in which he advocated a “quarantine” against aggressor nations. His words of sharp criticism were directed at Japan. He had inaugurated a new policy of pressure that helped drive Americans down the road to war.

    Harry Dexter White ( Soviet mole) putting pressure on the Japanese by sending a letter signed “Henry Morgenthau Jr.” to the President Roosevelt on the 24th or 25th of November. In words told of the dire consequences that would come in the wake of any agreement with Japan. Pressure exerted by Communist sympathizers in the Institute of Pacific Relations must also be taken into account when analyzing the reasons for the many rejections of a truce with Japan. On November 25, Professor Owen Lattimore, (Soviet spy) the special advisor to Chiang Kai-shek dispatched an anxious cable to Presidential Assistant Lauchlin Currie ( Soviet Spy) arguing against any agreement between the United States and Japan on a modus vivendi.

    The Institute of Pacific Relations (IPR) probably more than any other single factor, conditioned out people to abandon the mainland of China to the Communist. When Edward C. Carter became the chief administrator, July 1934, welcomed the USSR as a new member. The American branch of the IPR grew rapidly and prospered, boasting over 1,000 members. The Rockefeller, Carnegie foundations gave millions of dollars. J.P. Morgan, Shell Oil, International Business Machines, British Lever Brothers and many others. The IPR has been an organization whose chief function has been to influence United States public opinion on Far East matters. The Senate Subcommittee has concluded that the IPR has been neither objective nor nonpartisan and that since the mid 1930s, the net effect of the IPR activities on United States public opinion has been pro-Communist and pro-Soviet, and has frequently and repeatedly been such as to serve international Communist Chinese Communist and Soviet interests, and to subvert the interest of the United States.

    It are think tanks like these which push all these Cultural Marxist race and gender bending in the USA.

    Hey Steve, maybe you should use today's Buffalo News as your Twitter defense... Headline states 'Buffalo murders following troubling national trend.' Seven shot and killed already in January. Murders in 2020 up 40% compared to 2019. And, in a very, very woke newspaper this stat, 87.6% of the shooting victims are black. Hello Twitter? Can you put the Buffalo News in "time out?"

    Hugh Hewitt claimed that Biden said "nothing" but that's wrong: at one point Biden conditioned a post-lockdown "return to normal" on refitting every single public school building in the United Stares with a new ventilation system. This actually happened. No "journalists" asked him if he was drunk when he said that. Whatever happens Steve is wronger than a flat road armadillo about the vaccine (which Fauci and apparently Boris sees as necessitating further masking) being a way to get back to normal. The only way to get back to anything like normal would be to arrest and prosecute the Democrats.
