Dear KAG: 20220105 Open Thread

And the real DePat is not even warming up or singing or anything. I mean, my little bred down wolf Ying likes to sing along when I’m in the Queen of the Night range. I do have a video…. Somewhere.

Okay, on to some serious stuff.

I had a writing instructor in college who told us that once you see a topic come up three times it was a trend, and go ahead and write about it because someone was bound to buy a story from a freelancer. (This was before the Internet really took off. It was a novelty then.)

Well…guess what.

So, y’all know how China pretty much bought up a whole lot of Africa to exploit the place for minerals and they’re trying to do the same with Afghanistan?

Well, a little closer to home, they’re up to the same thing, and I’m not talking about just the Panama Canal.

Nope.

MonkeyWerx, actually, noticed it last week in the Caribbean, and followed up Monday night with this. (I have it cued to where he starts talking about just the Caribbean.)

And then General Flynn highlighted this article from the UK Daily Mail on his Telegram channel:

China’s plot to ‘take over’ Latin America: Beijing inks new deal to share nuclear tech, build 5G networks, develop space programmes, and pump cheap loans into America’s back yard in ‘growing threat’ to US

  • China has put pen to paper on a new deal to deepen ties with countries in Latin America and the Caribbean 
  • New deal will see Beijing share nuclear technology, build 5G and communications networks, help develop space programmes and pump cheap infrastructure loans into the region in attempt to buy influence 
  • Comes off the back of years of Chinese investment and trade in the region, which has diminished US power 
  • Beijing plans to ‘take over’ America’s back yard and is a ‘growing threat’ to the US, analysts have warned

China has inked a new deal with leaders in Latin America and the Caribbean to deepen ties across almost all areas of society in what one analyst likened to a plot to ‘take over’ the region.

As part of the deal, Beijing has committed to supplying the region with ‘civilian’ nuclear technology, helping to develop ‘peaceful’ space programmes, building 5G networks of the kind Washington warns will be used to spy on people, and to pumping in cheap loans and financing for ‘elaborate development plans.’

China has even pledged to build schools and fund classes teaching Chinese language and ‘culture’, though such institutions have been criticised elsewhere for pushing state propaganda and limiting academic freedom.

It comes off the back of decades of Chinese investment and development in Latin America and the Caribbean which has seen hundreds of billions of dollars poured into the region to build critical infrastructure such as ports, roads, and power plants in what many believe is an attempt to buy power and influence in America’s back yard. 

‘There are absolutely ambitions for China to become the dominant influence in Latin America,’ Mateo Haydar, a researcher at the Heritage Foundation said off the back of the latest deal. 

https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2021/10/19/16/49372529-10107835-image-a-23_1634657917298.jpg

(The image won’t copy, but is worth a click. Seriously.)

‘The challenge is comprehensive, and there’s absolutely a security and military interest there. … That threat is growing, and it’s a different kind of threat than what we saw with the Soviets,’ he told the Washington Examiner.

Professor Evan Ellis, of the U.S. Army War College, added: ‘The Chinese don’t say, “We want to take over Latin America,” but they clearly set out a multidimensional engagement strategy, which, if successful, would significantly expand their leverage and produce enormous intelligence concerns for the United States.’

The deal, officially the ‘Joint Action Plan for Cooperation in Key Areas’, was signed last month between China and CELAC, an alliance of Latin American and Caribbean States that encompasses almost all the countries in the region including major players such as Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Venezuela, Uruguay and Chile.

While light on specifics, it sets out a broad roadmap for relations between China and countries in the region up to 2024 – committing them to deepening ties between governments, banks, companies and educational institutions.

Most of the commitments appear routine – such as pledges to preserve the environment, develop green tech, and promote equality and sustainability – but some will certainly give minds in the Pentagon pause for thought.

The first is a commitment to exchange nuclear technology and promote ‘relevant practical projects’ including the training of nuclear scientists to ‘bring into play advantages offered by nuclear technology and nuclear energy.’

The deal specifies that this will be ‘peaceful’ and elsewhere commits the parties to pursuing ‘nuclear disarmament’, but will almost certainly cause concern because the technology used to enrich nuclear fuel can be repurposed to make weapons-grade material for use in bombs.

In the parlance of the Church Lady, isn’t that special.

Or in the immortal words of my sainted grandmother who invented the spiritual happy hour when she sat down in the afternoon to say the Rosary with a gin and tonic… “Oh, $#!+.”

While we have been distracted with the pandemic that isn’t, China has been actively violating the Monroe Doctrine, not that we follow that anymore.

As part of the agreement, the two sides commit to cooperation in the ‘construction of ground infrastructure’ to support space programmes, raising the possibility that such technology could soon be launched, controlled or monitored from America’s doorstep.

And that is not the only area where Chinese and South American technology is likely to combine. The deal also pledges greater cooperation on ‘digital infrastructure, telecommunications equipment, [and] 5G.’

The US has been locked in a proxy-war with China for years over the roll-out of 5G technology, ever since it emerged that Beijing was pulling ahead in the race to build the world’s new information networks.

Mike Pompeo, former US secretary of state, pushed hard in the later years of the Trump administration to persuade western nations and US allies to ditch the technology, warning it would be used to spy on users.

South American countries have been at the epicentre of the battle, trying to appease both Beijing and DC. Jair Bolsonaro, Brazilian president and close ally of Trump, at first pledged to exclude Huawei – one of China’s biggest technology firms – from running part of its network, only to reverse that stance when Trump left office.

According to the text of the deal, it is a fight that look set to continue for some time longer.

China and Latin American states have also agreed to cooperate directly between their militaries, ostensibly for the purpose of fighting terrorism and taking down organised criminal networks.

The two sides said they will ‘share knowledge, policies, technologies and experiences’ in tackling the threats, suggesting some level of cooperation and intelligence sharing between their militaries and police forces.

Other pledges appear to be a continuation of infrastructure projects already underway in region, many of built as part of China’s trillion-dollar Belt and Road initiative.

These include the deepening of ties in trade and financial markets, including investment and loans for ‘elaborate development plans’, and helping with the ‘transition towards green energy’ by building new power plants.

China has also pledged to help with oil, gas a mining exploration, though claims green projects will be given priority over fossil fuels.

R-i-i-i-ght.

I wish I had better and more entertaining news to impart, but guess what…with only two mentions, we have a trend.

Have a good day y’all.

(I don’t remember who brought this to a daily in the comments, but thanks.)

And, of course, the obligatory George Carlin:

Per the Boss:

Yeah, I know it’s a Tom Hanks flick, but he didn’t score the music.

And now for the obligatory message from our sponsors:

Here at the Q tree we believe in the concept of CIVIL open free speech and the discussion that fleshes out ideas. When commenting and participating in the OPEN discussion on this thread all comments MUST NOT CONTAIN personal threats, baiting, name calling, or other anti-social words fomenting hate, violence or destruction.

MARK 6:45-52

45Immediately he made his disciples get into the boat and go before him to the other side, to Beth-sa’ida, while he dismissed the crowd. 46And after he had taken leave of them, he went up on the mountain to pray. 47And when evening came, the boat was out on the sea, and he was alone on the land. 48And he saw that they were making headway painfully, for the wind was against them. And about the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea. He meant to pass by them, 49but when they saw him walking on the sea they thought it was a ghost, and cried out; 50for they all saw him, and were terrified. But immediately he spoke to them and said, “Take heart, it is I; have no fear.” 51And he got into the boat with them and the wind ceased. And they were utterly astounded, 52for they did not understand about the loaves, but their hearts were hardened.

Do not be afraid to take a chance on peace, to teach peace, to live peace. Peace will be the last word of history” – St. Pope John Paul II

Holiness is this profound contact with God, becoming a friend of God: it is letting the Other work, the Only One who can really make the world both good and happy. — Benedict XVI

As always, prayers for the fight against that which seeks to enslave us are welcome.

Please include: President Donald Trump, the Q team, our soldiers in the field, special forces, tactical units, first responders and those working behind the scenes…and any and all people with family members in the hospital, COVID or not.

And…members of the QTree who no longer participate for one reason or another.

It is quite clear, as per Wolf’s message from July, that we are under spiritual attack. Building up a robust arsenal of prayer and discipline is a must in fighting the enemy and his minions.

In that spirit, the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel from Tuesday’s threads, and the Breastplate of St. Patrick, not to mention the Litany of Humility are favorites recommended by exorcists in spiritual warfare.

JP, it seems, is off coming up with new, brilliant satire ideas, and this blast from the past popped into my feed from when comedy was actually funny. I honestly don’t remember this one from my childhood.

And…you want a musical duel? As an adult with 30+ years Classical music experience – NOT Country by any means – this was impressive…and I didn’t see it until a couple years ago. The finger work and improv is just so cool.

Here’s the official Democrap January 6 narrative: ‘Carnage’ no less.

RAC

They know that another grand steal, especially with more vigilant watch on them, is most probably not do-able.
Their second best option is to invent some phony charges with the Jan 6 lie fest, with which to attempt to impeach PDJT yet again.
If they succeed in taking PDJT out of the running the deep state pretenders will jump into the breech.

So is the expected electoral bloodbath for the Dems to be beyond what their fraud machine could overcome? Seems no way that Any GOP could get higher favorability than Trump…

More likely, to me, is that the Dems want the GOP to control Congress so Joe & Hoe’s disasters can get blame-shifted to RePubes!

I maintain skepticism on this, TBH. Souring swing districts and “heat” on sketchy ballot schemes are excellent explanations to me. Nonetheless, I’m keeping open other possibilities, the more I learn about China’s biowarfare stuff. If anybody has “cause de guerre”, it’s us.

SteveInCO

The blog finally caught up.

The secondary mirror is deployed and latched.

JWST is now a telescope, instead of a hood ornament for some future starship (human or alien?).

Today, Webb teams successfully deployed the observatory’s secondary mirror support structure. When light from the distant universe hits Webb’s iconic 18 gold primary mirrors, it will reflect off and hit the smaller, 2.4-foot (.74-meter) secondary mirror, which will direct the light into its instruments. The secondary mirror is supported by three lightweight deployable struts that are each almost 25 feet long and are designed to withstand the space environment. Specialized heating systems were used to warm up the joints and motors needed for seamless operation.

“Another banner day for JWST,” said Bill Ochs, Webb project manager at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, as he congratulated the secondary mirror deployment team at the Mission Operations Center in Baltimore. “This is unbelievable…We’re about 600,000 miles from Earth, and we actually have a telescope.”

The deployment process began at approximately 9:52 a.m. EST, and the secondary mirror finished moving into its extended position at about 11:28 a.m. EST. The secondary mirror support structure was then latched at about 11:51 a.m. EST. At approximately 12:23 p.m. EST, engineers confirmed that the structure was fully secured and locked into place and the deployment was complete.

“The world’s most sophisticated tripod has deployed,” said Lee Feinberg, optical telescope element manager for Webb at Goddard. “That’s really the way one can think of it. Webb’s secondary mirror had to deploy in microgravity, and in extremely cold temperatures, and it ultimately had to work the first time without error. It also had to deploy, position, and lock itself into place to a tolerance of about one and a half millimeters, and then it has to stay extremely stable while the telescope points to different places in the sky – and that’s all for a secondary mirror support structure that is over 7 meters in length.”

Next Webb will deploy an important radiator system known as the aft deployable infrared radiator (ADIR), which helps shed heat away from its instruments and mirrors. Learn more about Webb’s deployment timeline online.

I do NOT know the ins and outs of the whole process, but it looks to me as if, even if future steps fail, as long as the mirrors can be aligned the telescope could be used in some sort of degraded mode. For example, even if the side mirrors don’t deploy, the 12 that are in place already give the telescope 2/3rds of the light gathering power it was supposed to have. If that radiator doesn’t work, well, the telescope will lose some or even a lot of its infrared capability, but might still work in visible light (orange and red).

Mind you we don’t want any of that stuff to fail!

Radiator is supposed to be tomorrow/thursday, then the two side mirror sections (three hexagons each) on Friday and Saturday, respectively. At that point it’s deemed “deployed” but still has over two weeks of travel to L2, and that time will be used adjusting the alignment of the individual mirror segments, and waiting for the telescope to cool down. The whole cooling process will actually take months, because the cooler it gets, the slower it cools down further. I don’t even vaguely understand what else they’ll be doing in those months, but it’s called “calibration.”

para59r

Hey, quick question. What’s up by L2, other satellites near and farther out?

Oh wait, seems I found the answer with this second link.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lagrange_point

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lagrange_point#Spacecraft_at_Sun%E2%80%93Earth_L2

So then there at least 3 more missions in the works for L2?

SteveInCO

Looks like it.

I know when I wrote about JSWT in a Saturday post I suggested it should have been named after Herschel. He, after all, discovered infrared.

I didn’t realize there was an ESA infrared telescope already that had that name.

That article is a good find!

The commentators don’t see a lot of trust in this process. If Raffensperger can’t ignore it, he’s likely to delay and water down.

Expecting any of these sites to be the solution is a pipe dream. At best we may get 90% there but I would not hold my breath.

Cuppa Covfefe

The thing is, we NEED multiple sites. Relying on just one is just as bad a tactic as a company single-sourcing a critical component.

Data General almost went under for doing that (back in the 70s, when they were quite successful). Tracy Kidder’s excellent book “Soul Of A New Machine” has a lot of good info on that, from the times when ASICs were more than just tennis shoes…

Give the derp state heartburn by forcing them to play whack-a-mole with multiple media…

” ….gettr financing being from China…” Where did that come from?

AHHHHhhh Just as I thought:

Who is funding Gettr? Trump’s new app backed by fugitive Chinese billionaire Guo Wengui

…..According to the Beast, Wengui or Miles Kwok helped launch the app through funding from his family foundation. So far, he’s the only named funder. Miller refused to name the others but only said Gettr was funded by a “consortium of international investors”. The role of Wengui, while unclear, does indicate the extent to which American companies are reliant on foreign funding. …

So it is the SAME CRAP they tossed at Steve Bannon. Connection to a Chinese person here in the USA is translated into a connection with CHINA.

Bannon ALWAYS makes a distinction between the CCP and the ‘Old Hundred Names’ the ordinary people of China.

…..

The fact they did not do the two minute check I just did, makes me…

I had an up close & personal experience with how that works.

TheseTruths

Here are excerpts from a long article from 2019 that clearly explains Texas law about the use of deadly force to protect property (but it can be somewhat subjective).
https://ccwsafe.com/blog/danger-texas-law-on-deadly-force-defense-of-property

In 49 of our states, the use of deadly force to defend mere personal property in the absence of an imminent threat to a person or persons, is simply unlawful. Period. There is, of course, the 50th state that is the exception to this general rule, and that is the great state of Texas. Indeed, it’s inevitable that among the comments regarding the news stories above, there will those along the lines of, “Well, it woulda been legal to kill that thief in Texas!”

Does Texas allow for the use of deadly force in defense of personal property? Yes. Under any and all conditions? No! And understanding the conditions that must be met to trigger that deadly force privilege can easily mean the difference between having acted lawfully on the one hand, and spending 99 years in a Texas prison on the other.

Statute §9.41 doesn’t privilege you to use any degree of force in defense of some other person’s property. Defense of their property under §9.41 is on them, not on you. By extension, then, you also can’t use deadly force in defense of some other person’s property under §9.42.

§9.42

A person is justified in using deadly force in against another to protect land or tangible, movable property…

(2) when and to the degree he reasonably believes the deadly force is immediately necessary:

     (A) to prevent the other’s imminent commission of arson, burglary, robbery, aggravated robbery, theft during the nighttime, or criminal mischief during the nighttime; or

     (B) to prevent the other who is fleeing immediately after committing burglary, robbery, aggravated robbery, or theft during the nighttime from escaping with the property; and

So, in order to trigger the legal justification for using deadly force in defense of property under §9.42, it is required that either (2)(A) and/or (2)(B) are met.

Under (2)(B), theft during the nighttime qualifies only if the thief is escaping with the property. If they’ve dropped the property behind, the prior theft no longer satisfies (2)(B). Might the thief have dropped the property without you being aware that they’ve done so? If so, here’s another “technicality” that means the difference between acquittal and a 99-year prison sentence.

Note also that some of the listed criminal acts, such as theft, qualify only if they occur “during the nighttime.” What does that mean? The hours of darkness – between sunset and sunrise – obviously aren’t even consistent across the year, with more hours of darkness each day in the winter and fewer in the summer. If it’s dusk or dawn, are we in the hours of darkness? Can we know?

This crime was not robbery (of someone’s person). Was it burglary (breaking and entering someone’s property with intent to commit a crime inside)? It definitely was theft, and theft is supposed to occur during nighttime to meet the provisions of #2. It was in the daytime in this case, so I’m not sure that qualificaiton was met.

Let’s assume you’ve met the conditions of either (2)(A) or (2)(B), however, and have therefore satisfied paragraph (2) of §9.42. You’re still not justified in having used deadly force in defense of property unless you also satisfy paragraph (3) of §9.42.

 (3) he reasonably believes that:

     (A) the land or property cannot be protected or recovered by any other means; or

     (B) the use of force other than deadly force to protect or recover the land or property would expose the actor or another to a substantial risk of death or serious bodily injury.

Let’s consider (3)(A): “the land or property cannot be protected or recovered by any other means”…if the thief is fleeing on foot, instead of simply shooting him, might you not have instead jumped into your car, chased him down, and fought him with your fists to recover your property?

That might seem like an ill-advised means to protect or recover the property, and it probably is, but is it a possible means? If so, failure to try that alternative could fail to qualify under (3)(A). Remember, (3)(A) requires that the alternative be impossible – “the land or property cannot be protected or recovered by any other means.” Not that it would be hard to do so, but that it cannot be done.

I think 3(A) was met.

Even if you fail to meet the conditions of (3)(A), however, you might still satisfy (3) by meeting the conditions of (3)(B), that using other than deadly force would expose you to a substantial risk of deadly force harm.

Certainly, if the thief is armed with a firearm or some other deadly weapon, using a lesser degree of force would almost certainly expose you to a substantial risk of deadly force harm. In such a case, (3)(B) is likely satisfied, and paragraph (3) has been met.

But what if the thief is not armed with a firearm or other deadly weapon? What if it’s the snatch-and-grab of a purse, a shoplifting or the breaking of a window of an unoccupied car, all without the use of weapon of any sort? Would using a non-deadly means of force to protect the property expose the defender to a substantial risk of deadly force harm? Not just a possible risk of deadly force harm, or even a very real risk of deadly force harm, but a substantial risk of deadly force harm?

Maybe. But maybe not. It’s certainly not black-and-white. And once again, we’re sitting precariously on a legal balance beam, with acquittal on one side and a 99-year prison sentence on the other.

The statues use the term “reasonable” several times. The difficulty comes in how the pertinent people (the jury) define that term.

Again, it’s the difference between an acquittal and 99-year prison sentence. And, once you’ve acted, the determination of reasonableness is entirely outside of your control.

Hesitate to post this.

Quite possibly, out of line. I do that. Below can apply to many, with a tweak or two.

Unsolicited thoughts for consideration, modification, OR totally dismiss. 🙂

Smiling, “busting at the seams with food.” A nice feeling.

“…when this is supposed to go down.” Truth is, it MAY NEVER GO DOWN.

One day at a time. Increasing time from Covid. Surgery, primary focus.

Truth is, I am just starting my bug out plan. Have never seriously considered it a likely necessity. If nothing else, it is a good mental exercise. With today’s environment, I will make a plan.

Out of sequence. If bug-out is a consideration, if the day arrives… Sounds like you have a likely destination. Major step ahead of me.

Already have a plan. Yes, great. No, consider the following. Make reasonable assumptions, within capabilities and limitations. Make it functional. Talk it out. Document the plan. Even informal notes work. Load out planned, but not executed. Until, IF necessary.

Routing? Sort of like Chiefio planning his CA getaway to FL. He has numerous routes. Everything from major highways, secondary, lesser roads, including BLM. Latter I take as a bit melodramatic, but potentially smart as hell.

BTW, having made MANY cross the states and international moves, with little kids, please allow Kiddo to be part of the solution, the plan. Reassuring. Fun if possible. Comforting, in a less than ideal reality.

Whether bug-out happens or not, CASH IS KING. CASH needs to be on-hand. Always.

IF Bug Out happens, carry, loaded. Mindful kiddo is along for the ride. IF no CCW, at least carry unloaded in a lock box. Magazine loaded, NOT in the gun, IN lock box IS legal in CA. Lock box at the READY to be opened AND loaded.

For now, distance from Covid AND surgery primary focus. All this other stuff IS manageable, What If Stuff. At the most, discussion and light research for now.

My husband is a big train nut he told me he sees more trains now with boxcars and containers. The trains are a mile long. We used to see them filled with coal but now box cars and containers.
He told this is America there is always a solution people find a way they always do that makes America so special. He does not think much will be missing from shelves in stores. The cost might be a problem for many people specially those who rely only on SS.

Yes, we will find our way forward. We always do.

The degree of difficulty, pain, is the unknown. 

Those with SS, limited income will certainly have tough times. IMO.

Unless the injection mandates get wholesale tossed, inflation will TRULY SKYROCKET.

Health insurance. Within a month or two, I DO expect unvaxed will have levies on their health insurance. Private insurance will levy first. Then Medicare a few weeks later.

Trains. Last week.

  • Rural NW Texas generally traveling NW into NM. US84 IIRC. Some freight trains northbound, spaced a few miles apart.
  • Crossing westward on I-40 through NM and AZ. LONG, LONG freight trains. The kind with 3-5 engines up front, two engines in the middle and a couple engines taking up the rear pushing. Common site over the years.
  • The week before, I-10 eastward. AZ and NM. Significant rail movement.

You are a train nut also 🙂
You sound like my husband who has all the train routs memorized. He watches trains on his computer endlessly. There are people out there uploading videos of train crossings 🙂

Now go and listen to the of the Stew Peters interview with Dr Malone. Is Dr Malone saying what I think he was saying??? He was working with the military on a vaccine under Trump but the FDA tossed up road blocks? (Sorry I can not find the spot he says that)

Interesting that Clif High predicted the dollar would fail within the next few months.
Kazakhstan capital Nur-Sultan declares state of emergency

This is the fourth Kazakhstan region where a state of emergency has been declared

A  state of emergency was declared in the capital of Kazakhstan Nur-Sultan due to protests that engulfed the country. An appropriate decree was signed by President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev.

Thus, the state of emergency in the capital began at 16:00 local time and will last until January 19, 2022. There will also be a curfew in the city from 23:00 to 7:00….

2013 Conspiracy website

The Illuminati Capital ASTANA Kazakhstan

Astana is the first capital being built in the 21st century and it perfectly represents where the world is headed. It is truly one man’s vision: Nursultan Nazarbayev, the president of Kazakhstan (yes Borat’s country, I know). Backed by billions of petrodollars, the city is being built from scratch in a remote and deserted area of the Asian steppes. The result is astonishing: a futuristic occult capital, embracing the New World Order while celebrating the most ancient religion known to man: Sun Worship. The city is still a huge construction site, but the buildings that are already completed already sum up Nazarbayev’s occult vision.

Conceived by Britain’s most prolific architect, Lord Norman Forster, this giant pyramid is an odd presence in the middle of the Asian Steppes.  The building is dedicated to “the renunciation of violence” and “to bring together the world’s religions”. Norman Foster has said that the building has no recognizable religious symbols to permit the harmonious reunification of confessions. In reality, the pyramid is a temple for the occultist’s only TRUE religion: Sun worship. A journey inside this building is a truly symbolic one. It represents each human’s path to illumination. Let’s take the tour…..

It’s nice your vet will allow payments. Many won’t.

These are country doctors. They know a lot of people and their circumstances. Those who can pay feel it like me but I am grateful I can pay my bill. One dog never gets sick. Peri has always had problems. My cats are very healthy rarely go to the vet just yearly look over. I just had them at the groomer since I am spring cleaning have to begin early 🙂 One room at a time . It is snowing if we get more than 3 ” I will take out my rugs . I made another appointment for March for them to be groomed and bathed. They like it. The vet has a spa routine for them. They were so tired 🙂 I need to get Woodford more often there he has lots of energy.

Senator Ted Cruz Calls J6 Protestors “Violent Terrorists Who Should Go to Jail for a Long, Long Time”
Oh dear, this statement by Senator Ted Cruz is going to put Ms. Julie Kelly in quite a pickle. Earlier today, Senator Cruz called the J6 protesting groups a bunch of “violent terrorists … who should go to jail for a long, long time.”

If the 2016 RNC convention speech didn’t shake off his supporters, perhaps this latest revelation will.  Wolfman Cruz is one small nudge to the right of the one-eyed Cheney from Texas.

TheseTruths

I’m not defending Cruz. I don’t understand why he’s phrasing things like he is in that video.

He is clearly standing up for law enforcement, which is usually a winning issue with conservatives, especially since the defund-the-police movement. But he’s a brilliant lawyer and should know that J6 goes way beyond “the men and women in blue.” He should know that some of them were acting at the behest of Pelosi, and one of them murdered Ashli Babbitt. And wasn’t there another woman beaten within an inch of her life by police? Surely Cruz isn’t calling those women “terrorists”?

Cruz said there was a violent terrorist attack on the Capitol on January 6. He does not say the people who were protesting the election certification were violent terrorists, but that is the logical take-away from his statements. So was there a terrorist attack by any group (not talking about MAGA people) at the Capitol that day? I’ve never thought about J6 in terms of terrorism, and of course not on the part of those who were there to peacefully protest. So what I’m getting at is, could he be talking about some other group that infiltrated the protests, were violent, and were there to do terrorist acts? Is he being cagey? I don’t think this is likely, but I’m just wondering what his justification for his statements will be when he learns that the entire MAGA movement is going to turn on him.

para59r

No matter how you slice it, he called Jan 6 a terrorist attack and he’d being rightfully taken to the wood shed for it and it doesn’t come out better in longer clips. He just carried Pelosi’s water, Garland’s water and paved the way for Biden tomorrow.

The only we he gets out of this is open an office at the J6 Gulag and remains there until everyone of them is out free and clear and then works to clear everyone of their names who have already been railroaded, while making space for Ray Epps and company. Something he and all the other republicans should of been doing from the beginning.

The 1986 Act that shields manufacturers from liability also requires them to keep VAERS accurate. So if VAERS is not accurate, the manufacturers are violating the law. If they say VAERS is not accurate, they are admitting to violating the law.

And as a reminder we already have a UMASS study that determined VAERS is under counted by a factor of 10 and a U of Columbia study that was a bit more stringent that says it is under counted by a factor of 41.

Actually there is a lawyer working on this.
BOMBSHELL from attorney Thomas Renz:

Gail Combs

ARGHHhhhh

https://www.law.cornell.edu/topn/national_childhood_vaccine_injury_act_of_1986

…The process of incorporating a newly-passed piece of legislation into the Code is known as “classification” — essentially a process of deciding where in the logical organization of the Code the various parts of the particular law belong. Sometimes classification is easy; the law could be written with the Code in mind, and might specifically amend, extend, or repeal particular chunks of the existing Code, making it no great challenge to figure out how to classify its various parts. And as we said before, a particular law might be narrow in focus, making it both simple and sensible to move it wholesale into a particular slot in the Code. But this is not normally the case, and often different provisions of the law will logically belong in different, scattered locations in the Code. As a result, often the law will not be found in one place neatly identified by its popular name. Nor will a full-text search of the Code necessarily reveal where all the pieces have been scattered. Instead, those who classify laws into the Code typically leave a note explaining how a particular law has been classified into the Code. It is usually found in the Note section attached to a relevant section of the Code, usually under a paragraph identified as the “Short Title”….

Here it is as a BILL
https://www.congress.gov/bill/99th-congress/house-bill/5546

I think Mr Bow-tie (who I do not trust) is referring to this:

….Part B: Additional Remedies – Sets forth procedures under which the person who filed a petition for compensation under the program may elect to file a civil action for damages.

Provides that no vaccine manufacturer shall be liable in a civil action for damages arising from a vaccine-related injury or death:

(1) resulting from unavoidable side effects; or

(2) solely due to the manufacturer’s failure to provide direct warnings.

Provides that a manufacturer may be held liable where:

(1) such manufacturer engaged in the fraudulent or intentional withholding of information; or

(2) such manufacturer failed to exercise due care.

Permits punitive damages in such civil actions under certain circumstances.

Part C: Assuring a Safer Childhood Vaccination Program in the United States – Requires each health care provider who administers a vaccine listed in the Vaccine Injury Table to record certain information with respect to each such vaccine. Requires each health care provider and vaccine manufacturer to report certain information to the Secretary.

Requires the Secretary to develop certain vaccine information materials for distribution to the legal representatives of any child receiving a vaccine listed in the Vaccine Injury Table.

Directs the Secretary to promote the development of safer childhood vaccines.

Sets forth recordkeeping and reporting requirements for vaccine manufacturers. Imposes civil and criminal penalties for destroying, altering, or concealing any such report or record.

CSTO alliance is the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) It is a Russia-led military alliance of seven former Soviet states that was created in 2002. The CSTO alliance  Russia, Armenia, Belarus and Kazakhstan’s two neighbors, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.

Well it is NOT China which is the other neighbor so I would count it as a net positive.

Jonathan Turley: Could the Maxwell Conviction Be Thrown Out Over Juror Misconduct?
https://jonathanturley.org/2022/01/05/maxwell-conviction-thrown-into-doubt-over-juror-admission/

The gist of it:

A juror identified only by his first two names (“Scotty David”) admitted that he was able to sway fellow jurors by discussing his own experience with abuse. It is not clear if he disclosed that prior abuse on the juror questionnaire as part of the voir dire process. The disclosure could give Maxwell a strong argument for reversal if the prior abuse was not revealed and was then used in the jury room to pursue the jury after it deadlocked in its proceedings. Update: Both defense counsel and the government are now calling for a formal inquiry into the allegations on this juror….

This would be exceptionally serious if a juror failed to disclose prior abuse and then used that prior abuse to influence jury deliberations. The Supreme Court has repeatedly declared that the “minimal standards of due process” demand “a panel of impartial, indifferent jurors.” I expect we will learn soon if the juror failed to disclose such abuse but it would be odd, if he did, that the defense did not question him about it.

  :wpds_question:  If her conviction were overturned, would there be a new trial?

Today was another January Anniversary – of Susan Rice’s ‘by the book’ story – and now we know what book.

or maybe it was the Communist Manifesto.

Genrikh Yagoda

Genrikh Yagoda was born into a Jewish family in Rybinsk, on 7th November, 1891. After leaving school he worked as an apprentice engraver. His employer was the father of Yakov Sverdlov. Yagoda came under the political influence of Sverdlov and in 1907 he was encouraged to join the Bolsheviks. Yagoda also married Sverdlov’s niece Ida Averbach.

After the successful October Revolution in 1917 Yagoda joined the All-Russian Extraordinary Commission for Combating Counter-Revolution and Sabotage (Cheka). Felix Dzerzhinsky was head of the organization. Dzerzhinsky later commented: “In the October Revolution, I was a member of the Military Revolutionary Committee, and then I was entrusted with the task of organizing the Extraordinary Commission for the Struggle against Sabotage and Counterrevolution I was appointed its Chairman, holding at the same time the post of Commissar for Internal Affairs.”
Dzerzhinsky explained in July 1918: “We stand for organized terror – this should be frankly admitted. Terror is an absolute necessity during times of revolution. Our aim is to fight against the enemies of the Soviet Government and of the new order of life. We judge quickly. In most cases only a day passes between the apprehension of the criminal and his sentence. When confronted with evidence criminals in almost every case confess; and what argument can have greater weight than a criminal’s own confession.”

It’s a nice idea, but not exactly accurate. (Definitions from dictionary.com)

-ment is a suffix that derives from a noun-forming Latin suffix.

-ment

a suffix of nouns, often concrete, denoting an action or resulting state (abridgment; refreshment), a product (fragment), or means (ornament).

ORIGIN OF -MENT

<French <Latin -mentum, suffix forming nouns, usually from verbs

It is not the same root as the one for the mind:

ORIGIN OF MENTAL1

1375–1425; late Middle English <Late Latin mentālis, equivalent to Latin ment- (stem of mēnsmind + -ālis-al1

para59r

Yes, not Latin. Mentis also known as Metis is Greek for the intelligence and resourcefulness. Pre-Socratic Philosophers used the term Mentis. Early Greek Mythology named Metis as the early wife of Zeus before Hera. He impregnated her and swallowed her. From there Athena, the goddess of wisdom was born out of his head.

dark “history”

Yep and after I turned the page, or I’d of updated that. Greek to govern is to steer. So it’s to steer with the mind. Which equates fine with your post.

nice

Good information, but neither the Latin ment- (“mind”) — which is the beginning of words, not a suffix — nor the Greek mentis (also a word, not a suffix) applies to the English suffix -ment, which comes from the Latin suffix -mentum. They have the same spelling but are two entirely different word forms.

-ment 

common suffix of Latin origin forming nouns, originally from French and representing Latin -mentum, which was added to verb stems to make nouns indicating the result or product of the action of the verb or the means or instrument of the action. In Vulgar Latin and Old French it came to be used as a formative in nouns of action. French inserts an -e- between the verbal root and the suffix (as in commenc-e-ment from commenc-er; with verbs in ir-i- is inserted instead (as in sent-i-ment from sentir).

Used with English verb stems from 16c. (for example amazementbettermentmerriment, the last of which also illustrates the habit of turning -y to -i- before this suffix).

The stems to which -ment is normally appended are those of verbs; freaks like oddment & funniment should not be made a precedent of; they are themselves due to misconception of merriment, which is not from the adjective, but from an obsolete verb merry to rejoice. [Fowler]

If the suffix -ment meant “mind,” then all English words would have that meaning: empanelment, encumberment, parchment, assignment, etc.
